Iranian ship thought to be used as military base attacked, says Tehran Officials in Tehran said on Wednesday that the MV Saviz had been targeted in the Red Sea, a day after media reports said the ship had suffered damage after being hit by limpet mines. Images broadcast by Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency showed parts of the ship on fire. Tasnim said an explosion had targeted the hull. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/07/iran-acknowledges-attack-on-ship-thought-to-be-used-as-military-base Kim says North Korea facing its ‘worst-ever situation’ The comments, reported by state media on Wednesday, came as experts warn Kim is facing perhaps his toughest moment as he approaches a decade in rule, with North Korea’s coronavirus lockdown unleashing further shock on its sanctions-battered economy. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/4/7/n-koreas-kim-urges-party-members-to-be-more-proactive-kcna https://archive.is/xSdvN Main opposition party against mining wins Greenland election With all votes counted Wednesday, the left-leaning Community of the People party (Inuit Ataqatigiit) had secured 37% of the votes, entitling it to 12 seats in the Greenlandic national assembly, the 31-seat Inatsisartut.

US agrees to withdraw 'remaining combat troops' from Iraq – reports “Based on the increasing capacity of the ISF, the parties confirmed that the mission of U.S. and Coalition forces has now transitioned to one focused on training and advisory tasks, thereby allowing for the redeployment of any remaining combat forces from Iraq, with the timing to be established in upcoming technical talks,” the statement added. https://on.rt.com/b5jk Former permanent resident who hoped Biden would be his 'miracle' to be deported "We thought there was going to be a change," Jasmine Pena, Silva's sister, told ABC News Monday.

Greece: “Our Hatred for the Police Will Bring Us Together” It is the beginning of April and the mental impact of the lockdown has become even more surreal as the seasons change. The acts of resistance over the past few weeks have been both beautiful and terrifying. Meanwhile, the government continues to restrict our freedoms while opening Greece to tourists and business—in spite of infection rates averaging between 3000 and 4000 cases of COVID-19 a day, putting Greece third to last in the EU in terms of managing the crisis. In the following report, we describe the conclusion of the hunger strike of Dimitris Koufontinas, the clashes of March 9, and more. This report is brought to you by Radio Fragmata. You can read our previous reports from Greece starting here. A full list of resources on struggles in Greece is included at the end. https://crimethinc.com/2021/04/07/greece-our-hatred-for-the-police-will-bring-us-together Biden to Ukraine: “Unwavering Support for Euro-Atlantic Aspirations” Last Friday Joe Biden had his first call with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky Friday. Afterward, Zelensky stated, “We discussed the situation in Donbas in detail. President Biden assured me that Ukraine will never be left alone against Russia’s aggression.” In the White House readout of the call, Biden “affirmed the United States’ unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia’s ongoing aggression in the Donbas and Crimea.” Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin called his counterpart in Kyiv. According to the Pentagon readout, “Secretary Austin reaffirmed unwavering US support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and Euro-Atlantic aspirations.” (See for reference Victoria Nuland’s description of the U.S.’ $ 5 billion investment in regime change in Ukraine as of 2014 as one in its “European aspirations.” The talking point term remains “aspirations.” But no reference to Pentagon aspirations to throttle Russia.) “Euro-Atlantic aspirations” means membership in NATO and the EU (that’s the usual sequence), the expansion of the Russia-NATO border by 1400 miles, and NATO’s virtual encirclement of Russia. What would go wrong with such a noble plan? https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/04/07/biden-to-ukraine-unwavering-support-for-euro-atlantic-aspirations/ Jordan: Prince Hamzah drama comes at a critical moment A similar scenario unfolded in 2004, when King Abdullah stripped his half-brother, Hamzah, of the title of crown prince and instead gave it to his own son, Hussein. In both cases, the changes went ahead without a public battle. The latest crisis is different, and it may prove to be the most dangerous in the history of the Jordanian monarchy, with Prince Hamzah now under house arrest. In a leaked recording, Jordan’s army chief instructs the prince to refrain from “mingling and visiting” people and to avoid social media. Prince Hamzah frequently meets with tribal figures on an unofficial basis, which has reportedly angered the king and led to arrests among the prince’s entourage. At the same time, Jordan has been gripped by protests over the country’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, fuelled last month by the deaths of seven patients amid an oxygen shortage at a government hospital in al-Salt. Although the king rushed to the hospital, dismissed the health minister and ordered a judicial investigation, public anger has not diminished, with protesters calling for comprehensive political and economic reforms. Some demonstrators have called on Prince Hamzah to play a role in saving the country, which is in the throes of a severe economic crisis. Many Jordanians feel that the government has failed to manage and contain both the Covid-19 pandemic and the economy, dramatically affecting their quality of life. https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/jordan-prince-hamzah-drama-comes-critical-moment

Want to see a right-winger freak out? Tell them about Lenin's New Economic Policy, it's hilarious how confused they get when they learn the USSR had more of a free market than many capitalist countries in the early 1920s.
the what?
who cares the NEP was so long ago its ancient history now
Ending war communism marked the beginning of the USSR transformation into a degenerated workers state.

>>1332602 Every time? Communists in Russia, China, and elsewhere had the misfortune of starting off with a starvation-prone country that had suffered famines for centuries (or in the case of China, millennia), even though they ultimately led their countries to food sufficiency. If you look at caloric consumption per capita figures and agricultural output as well as indirect measures of nutritional intake like average height, both these things only started to improve after the Bolsheviks took control of Russia and the Maoists took control of China. For example, more people died of starvation and famines in pre-communist China, and there were regular famines in Russia and Ukraine every 20 years up to the 20th century. The effect of capitalist propaganda has been to blame the communists for not stopping the famines the minute they took over, while not blaming their capitalist predecessors for the famines _they_ oversaw. The last famine in the Soviet Union was in 1947. After that, the agricultural situation had improved and for the first time in Russia's 2000-year history an end to the cycle of famines was achieved. Caloric consumption per capita wouldn't decline until the restoration of capitalism in 1991.

People still refuse to believe the ruling class will murder billions of people to increase their wealth and power. They think that despite the booj openly announcing their desire to lower the population to a few hundred million, that it won't happen, or that they won't do it, or that they won't be affected. These are people who murder Arab kids for money every day and have been killing people for profit since the 17th century. Oh well. They were warned by real communists.
>>1332721 >you appear to be right that substantial medical records probably aren't legally available without prior written consent from the target. I am correct, you are talking out of your ass regarding phone privacy. And people aren't REQUIRED by law to carry a smartphone that tracks you, and indeed many are buying privacy smartphones, non-smartphones like the new RAZOR, carrying phones in Faraday bags or not carrying a cell phone all together. And while there are stolen medical records on the dark web, not everyone's records are leaked, and it's illegal for anyone, especially employers to seek stolen records like that. This isn't even touching on the fact that iPhones are not coming with anti-tracking features built-in and turned on by default, which is making online data brokers that you think know everything, super butt mad. >Yes they did. In fact, that was crucial to measuring effectiveness in its dual role as a treatment for those with active infections. No they didn't, they couldn't, because this whole COVID response has been a cluster fuck. Also they don't know if these people simply didn't get COVID or if the gene therapy protected them. >Got a single dose, only 1/6th are now fully vaccinated. According to the same studies you love to cite, the first does gives like 80-90% protection. Yet the CDC is crying like we're on the cusp of the worst COVID wave of all. >Or by many other explanations my link pointed to, which actual primary researchers have made CAUSAL arguments for. Then explain why Turkey didn't see higher death rates. And those researchers didn't prove a causal relationship. John Hoppkins found the correlation because again, it's been know for over a century that treatments interact. You sound like the oil shills that used whine that there was no proof that the high levels of lead in people's blood was caused by leaded gas, even though it fit in perfectly with everything we know about chemistry. <TL;DR The COVID "vaccine" (gene therapy) is a wildly exotic wholly untested until last year, treatment being blindly administered to people that does not STOP infections, or the internal damage COVID does to organs. It simply lets you return to work.
>>1332743 *This isn't even touching on the fact that iPhones are now coming
>>1332728 Right now the short term losses of doing such a thing is unpalatable. Their shortsightedness in this case is helpful to us, as they do not feel behooved to implement fascism yet or maybe ever again because imperialist countries are fully financialized.
>>1332745 We already live under fascism, it's just now going to move to the next phase where it's a giant world death camp.
