- Oceans are warming even faster than previously thought by Kara Manke from Berkeley News.
- Russian-Kurdish negotiations in Moscow: Turkey has defined its options and Washington is trying to gain time by Kuwaiti independent journalist Elijah J Magnier. As a whole, the article makes much sense to me except the sixth paragraph (beginning with "For Damascus" and ending with "in the area."). Also, I recommend listening/reading to a second interview that Cindy Sheehan had with Sarah Abed, a Syrian born Canadian, who gives us an update on the political situation in Syria. Sheehan furnishes 17 paragraph summaries, which can be followed along with the audio interview.

- Pompeo's Middle East Speech - A Blustering Promise Of Less U.S. Involvement by Bernhard from his blog Moon of Alabama.
- Why is Japan so Bitter About Unstoppable Rise of China? by Andre Vltchek from New Eastern Outlook. He seems a bit biased. I wonder what James Corbett, who seems a bit biased in favor of Japanese culture, thinks.
- A New Narrative Control Firm Works To Destroy Alternative Media by Caitlin Johnstone from her blog.
Whoever controls the narrative controls the world. Ruling power’s desire to regulate people’s access to information is so desperate that it has become as clumsy and ham-fisted as a teenager pawing at his date in the back seat of a car, and it feels about as enjoyable. They’re barely even concealing their desire to control our minds anymore, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to wake everyone up to their manipulations. We need to use every inch of our ability to communicate with each other before it gets shut down for good.

- "We Don't Take Orders From Bolton": US Withdrawal From Syria Begins by Tyler Durden from Zero Hedge. I read the same thing from several other websites.
- UK pushing cold-war propaganda worldwide from RT via YouTube.
RT America correspondent Michele Greenstein joins Rick Sanchez to discuss “Project Integrity,” a UK-funded intelligence operation “dedicated to revealing and combating propaganda and misinformation.” They create “clusters” of journalists and influencers across Europe and in the US to sew a “tougher stance” in policies toward Russia and the threat of “Russian measures” in media.
