The Malaysia Airlines flight 17 tragedy is a new chapter in a conflagration that has cost more than 1,500 lives on both sides and displaced 100,000 civilians. It is a horrible, tragic waste. And it is the result of a conflict unleashed by the competing interests of the rich oligarchs in the region and the international jostling of Russia and the West.
… The conflict in Ukraine shines a spotlight on changes in global imperialist relations. Since the collapse of the USSR, the US has been the world’s undisputed imperialist power. Yet its incursions in Iraq and Afghanistan have left it weakened. Russia has at least partially recovered from its economic collapse in the 1990s, and is starting to challenge Western interference in its sphere of influence. The rising powerhouse of China also has imperialist ambitions. Where these intersect, Russia and China have found in each other useful allies – as in the signing of a deal for a new $400 billion deal to pipe natural gas to China.
Russia has supported the Syrian butcher Assad, forged new relations with Saudi Arabia and created a new customs union to bring closer its former Eastern European satellites. Together with the other so-called BRICS countries, Russia has recently signed a deal for a new development bank to counter the influence of the World Bank and the IMF.
The recent conflagration in Iraq is resulting in a realignment of imperialist alliances. And a host of small and medium-sized imperialist powers are beginning to jostle for influence. More regional conflicts are flaring up, aided by the protracted global economic crisis.

An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.
Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.
After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.
Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.
