Is this a police action or a military action?

Glad to see that the U.S. State Department "welcomed the verdict". It's neither police or military - it's justice.

That's a good precedent since this was the first case of a Head of State being tried for War Crimes since Nuremburg.

And, of course, you can't welcome the verdict unless you agree with the process.

Oorah, Baby!

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
