    Evictions, loss of family income and other hardships associated with dams, roads and other projects can be especially harmful to young people. The bank's social and environmental safeguards forbid sudden, strong-arm evictions. But as the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, The Huffington Post and other media partners revealed in April, the bank is failing to enforce those rules, with devastating consequences for adults and children who live on or near land targeted for development.

    According to Britain's Telegraph, in a recent report, the U.S. Tow antitank missiles that U.S. President Barack Obama sent in October to the Islamic Sunni fighters in Syria to use against the forces of the non-sectarian Shiite ruler there, Bashar al-Assad, have been so effective against Russia's forces that Assad had invited in, that Russia-- defending (upon Syria's legal request) President Assad's forces, and attacking the jihadists imported into Syria by the Saudis and the rest of the West -- is now being forced to send into the battle Russia's costly T-90 tanks, which are less vulnerable to America's missiles.

    Why It Was Done

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    For the first time in history, an organized massacre of civilians has been filmed by many people from many different angles and perspectives while it was happening, and is documented in extraordinary detail in “real time,” the perpetrators having no fear of any negative consequences from their endeavor, and even cheering and celebrating the tortures and deaths as they were being imposed upon the helpless victims. The perpetrators were unconcerned, because what they were doing was what the government (which the U.S. had imposed upon their country and which U.S. taxpayers had spent more than 5 billion dollars to bring about there) had wanted them to do, and had helped to organize them to carry out. These people were just having fun, like a party to them, nothing really serious at all.

    A New Kind of Revolution

    From these forty-five interviews emerges a vivid picture of how life in Nicaragua has been transformed by the revolution. These interviews, even though some express opposition to the Sandinistas, reveal the depth of the changes that have taken place in Nicaragua, wide-spread support for revolution and almost unanimous opposition to the U.S. supported Contras. Here is the collective voice of a new kind of revolution involving not only traditional Marxists, but many others besides.
