From 1946 to 1958, the US government conducted 67 nuclear tests on several small islands -- called atolls -- in the Marshall Islands. The US government relocated entire populations and exposed others to cancer and disease-causing radiation. More than 60 years later, researchers at Columbia University say radiation on four of these atolls remains alarmingly high -- in some areas ten to 1,000 times higher than radioactive areas near the...

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused British forces of "theft" and "piracy" after authorities seized an Iranian tanker off the coast of Gibraltar while vowing Iran would not "leave such evil deeds unanswered," according to The Independent. The comments were made during a televised address on Tuesday as tensions continued to simmer about the UAE-based Gulf oil tanker, the MT Riah, which went missing on Saturday while traveling through the Strait of Hormuz.

Added: 16.07.2019 18:44 | 0 views | 0 comments

American politics may be poised for a similar realignment today as popular disaffection with the two major parties and their domination by corporate money and interests increases. Polls show that 57 percent of Americans want a major new party, including 71 percent of millennials. The reason for these figures are not hard to discern: from climate change, to rising cost of education, to a lack of a universal health...

On July 16, 1945, the U.S. detonated the first-ever nuclear device in the New Mexico desert. Less than a month later, it dropped two more atomic bombs, destroying Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing and injuring more than 200,000 civilians.

In June, shortly after Trump reportedly called off a military strike against Iran with just 10 minutes to spare, he lashed out on Twitter: "Iran cannot have Nuclear Weapons!" Meanwhile, the United States is pushing forward with...
