Razmig Keucheyan has an interesting post for those who would like to level the playing field in his article, "The French are right: tear up public debt – most of it is illegitimate anyway," subtitled, "Debt audits show that austerity is politically motivated to favour social elites. Is a new working-class internationalism in the air?"

And finally, John Queally at Commondreams.org writes, "Bloody Legacy of US Invasion as Tattered Iraq Teeters on Edge," as "Estimated half million people have fled Mosul as Sunni militia forces expand south towards Baghdad."
