"The idea that you can ... with U.S. weapons, bombs and rockets, somehow defeat Islamic extremism, we know that doesn't work. They've been trying for more than a decade now, and it hasn't worked anywhere."

– Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism project at the Institute for Policy Studies, on President Obama's authorization for renewed U.S. military action in Iraq

After Declaring 'There's No Military Solution,' Obama Launches New U.S. Military Intervention Targeting ISIS in Iraq

MP3 Interview with Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism project at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris

isis

With President Obama’s Aug. 7 authorization for U.S. military action targeting forces of the radical Sunni group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or ISIS – that has taken over large areas of northern Iraq and Syria, American soldiers are once again engaged in a war inside Iraq. The Pentagon has launched airstrikes against ISIS forces threatening the Kurdish regional capital city of Erbil as well as airlifted relief supplies to tens of thousands of minority Yazidi refugees who have fled to Mount Sinjar in the face of ISIS militant attacks.  Story continues

Detroit Citizens Rise Up to Stop Massive Water Shutoffs and Restore Service

MP3 Interview with Tom Stephens, an activist with the group Detroiters Resisting Emergency Management, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

detroit

Over the past few months, a water crisis has erupted in the bankrupt city of Detroit. It's not a crisis of water contamination, as has happened in Toledo, Ohio and other American cities this year, but one of water shutoffs for thousands of customers unable to pay their water bills. The shutoffs have been called a human rights violation by the United Nations. While some families have been able to get their water turned back on, the crisis continues for thousands of others. Critics charge that the water shutoff is part of the bankrupt city’s restructuring plan, and is leading toward privatizing Detroit's Water and Sewerage Department.  Story continues

Corporations Exploit Loophole to Engage in Overseas 'Inversions,' Avoiding Payment of U.S. Taxes

MP3 Interview with Rebecca Wilkins, senior counsel for federal tax policy with Citizens for Tax Justice, conducted by Scott Harris

inversions

The issue of corporate tax inversions has come into focus in recent months with the pharmacy retail chain Walgreen’s reluctant decision not to immediately relocate its headquarters to Switzerland in order to avoid paying U.S. taxes. Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer had attempted a tax inversion when it sought to acquire U.K.-based drug company AstraZeneca. Although the deal fell through in May, Pfizer is reported to be considering launching another takeover bid this fall. Last March, Chiquita Brands International, the nation’s largest importer of bananas, announced it would merge with the Irish fruit company Fyffes, and relocate its corporate headquarters to Ireland.  Story continues
