Lawmakers Press Pharma CEOs Rising Drug Prices, Feb 26 2019

Chief executive officers from seven prescription drug companies testified before the Senate Finance Committee on drug pricing practices. Members asked the executives how their companies set prices, determine rebates, and why prices for patients vary from country to country. The executives talked about their research and development costs relative to revenues and profits, and each stressed their commitment to providing all patients the medicines they need regardless of listed prices. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) warned them, however, that there was bipartisan support to ensure drug prices were brought down, and said that if the companies didn’t address the issue themselves, Congress or President Trump would take action to force them to do so. | C-SPAN.org

War Crimes: UK army rules allowed soldiers to shoot unarmed civilians

British Troops Committed War Crimes in Iraq: ICCA recent investigation has found that the British army operated rules of engagement in Iraq and Afghanistan that sometimes allowed soldiers to shoot unarmed civilians. According to the probe, soldiers serving in the two countries were at one point told that they had permission to shoot anyone acting in any way suspiciously.




British Army Permitted Shooting of Unarmed Civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan - One ex-soldier says he witnessed the fatal shootings of significant numbers of civilians in Basra, and does not believe that all the victims were keeping British troops under surveillance. He claims that the relaxing of the rules of engagement resulted in “a killing spree”.

British Troops Committed War Crimes in Iraq: ICC - The International Criminal Court chief prosecutors says there is a “reasonable basis” to believe that British troops committed war crimes against detainees during the Iraq conflict.

Venezuela crisis: Maduro blockades bridge on Colombia border to stop humanitarian aid entering country

Venezuela‘s military have barricaded a bridge at a key border crossing with Colombia in a challenge to a US-backed effort by the opposition to bring humanitarian aid into the beleaguered nation. 

Nicolas Maduro‘s regime blocked the Tienditas International Bridge with a giant orange tanker, two large blue containers and makeshift fencing. Armed soldiers stood guard at the customs building, with instructions to turn back any attempt to cross the border. 

Despite widespread hunger and a shortage of medicine, President Maduro vowed to turn back US aid after Trump’s administration recognised opposition leader Juan Guaido as the South American country’s rightful interim leader. | The Independent

Half a million children have died in Iraq since UN sanctions were imposed - most enthusiastically by Britain and the US. Three UN officials have resigned in despair. Meanwhile, bombing of Iraq continues almost daily.

US Sponsored Genocide Against Iraq 1990-2012. Killed 3.3 Million, Including 750,000 Children -

Approximately 3.3 million Iraqis, including 750,000 children, were “exterminated” by economic sanctions and/or illegal wars conducted by the U.S. and Great Britain between 1990 and 2012, an eminent international legal authority says.

The slaughter fits the classic definition of Genocide Convention Article II of, “Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part,” says Francis Boyle, professor of international law at the University of Illinois, Champaign, and who in 1991 filed a class-action complaint with the UN against President George H.W. Bush.

The U.S. and U.K. “obstinately insisted” that their sanctions remain in place until after the “illegal” Gulf War II aggression perpetrated by President George W. Bush and UK’s Tony Blair in March, 2003, “not with a view to easing the over decade-long suffering of the Iraqi people and children” but “to better facilitate the U.S./U.K. unsupervised looting and plundering of the Iraqi economy and oil fields in violation of the international laws of war as well as to the grave detriment of the Iraqi people,” Boyle said. 


When asked on US television if she [Madeline Albright, US Secretary of State] thought that the death of half a million Iraqi children [from sanctions in Iraq] was a price worth paying, Albright replied: "This is a very hard choice, but we think the price is worth it."

Venezuela’s economic history: how colonialism, US imperialism, and neoliberalism are major factors in Venezuela's dire straits

I’m going to do a thread on Venezuela’s economic history to try and dispel some of the myths going around that the present crisis is due to socialism. Actually, colonialism, US imperialism, and neoliberalism are far more important factors for why Venezuela is in dire straits.


In 1922, oil was discovered in Venezuela, and oil has reigned economically without interruption ever since. Venezuela's dictator Juan Vicente Gómez permitted U.S. oil companies to write Venezuela's petroleum law. Thus the country came to be central to the U.S. demand for oil.

In 1957, more than half of Standard Oil's global profits came from its Venezuelan affiliates; in the same year Shell's Venezuelan affiliates accounted for half of Shell's world profits. These corporations funneled a torrent of petroleum and dollars into the U.S. and Europe.

By the 1970s Venezuela was producing 3.5 million barrels of petroleum to run the U.S.'s industries, but four-fifths of the concessions owned by Standard Oil, Shell, Gulf, and Texaco were untouched reserves and over half the value of the exports never returned the country.  Read more

Venezuela: The US’s 68th Regime Change Disaster

The US government has been opposed to Venezuela’s socialist revolution since the time Hugo Chavez was elected in 1998. Unbeknownst to most Americans, Chavez was well loved by poor and working class Venezuelans for his extraordinary array of social programs that lifted millions out of poverty. Between 1996 and 2010, the level of extreme poverty plummeted from 40% to 7%. The government also substantially improved healthcare and education, cutting infant mortality by half, reducing the malnutrition rate from 21% to 5% of the population and eliminating illiteracy. These changes gave Venezuela the lowest level of inequality in the region, based on its Gini coefficient.

In Venezuela, US Forgets What Century It Is - Era of Coups Is Over 

For one thing, the long era of U.S.-cultivated coups— “regime changes” for those who cannot quite face this aspect of America’s conduct abroad—is over. First in Ukraine and a year later in Syria, Moscow has put Washington on notice: Destabilizing other nations in gross violation of international law will no longer go unopposed. One way or another, this will again prove true in Venezuela.

Hospitals that primarily serve people of color are less likely to provide relief from the stress of a serious illness, regardless of the person's race, a new study says.

"We knew that black and Hispanic cancer patients receive palliative (relieving pain without dealing with the cause of the condition) care at lower rates than white patients, but until now, we didn't know why. Was it just that doctors were not offering these services to their black and Hispanic patients?

Or is there some other factor at play?" said Alexander Cole, a researcher at the Center for Surgery and Public Health at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, in a news release.

Overall, the study included more than 600,000 individuals with metastatic cancer and found that only 21.7 percent received palliative care. That includes 20.0 percent of black patients and 15.9 percent of Hispanic patients.  Read more
