A series of reports over the past ten days—on poverty, wages, income inequality and social mobility—have painted a portrait of America starkly at odds with the official mythology of the United States as the land of unlimited economic opportunity, the country with the world’s highest standard of living: here.

Australia: An estimated 1,500 people marched last Saturday in Melbourne as part of the international Occupy movement against social inequality. The protest was called to re-establish an occupation site after police brutally assaulted demonstrators, arrested about 100 people and dismantled the encampment at City Square on October 21: here.

    The Police Raid on Occupy Oakland Was Nothing New for This City
    The projectiles police fired in clashes with protesters seriously injured a young Iraq war vet, Scott Olsen, which helped draw national outrage over the scale of force that police used. That sort of violent over-reaction and the tactics associated with it are, however, all too familiar in Oakland, where police have repeatedly responded to public protest with violence and have faced intense scrutiny for shooting unarmed suspects in black neighborhoods, in some cases fatally.

    U.S. Plans Post-Iraq Troop Increase in Persian Gulf
    The Obama administration plans to bolster the American military presence in the Persian Gulf after it withdraws the remaining troops from Iraq this year, according to officials and diplomats.

    Americans increasingly comparing Afghan war to Vietnam
    63% of Americans are now opposed to the war. The deaths of yet more Americans in a conflict that has already cost the lives of more than 1,700 American soldiers is only likely to see support fall further. Indeed the poll showed that some 58% of Americans say that the conflict is now similar to the Vietnam war.

    UNITED STATES: The roommate of an Iraq war veteran who suffered a fractured skull and other head injuries when riot police attacked an Occupy Wall Street protest on Oakland said Scott Olsen is doing well and is expected by doctors to make a full recovery.

    Keith Shannon served with the 24-year-old former Marine in Iraq.

    Mr Shannon, who visited Mr Olsen at a hospital on Sunday, said he “seems to be doing well,” although he is still unable to talk.
