WASHINGTON DC – The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has just presented the latest issue of the World Economic Outlook (WEO) report, which predicts a slowdown in the world economy.

Published 2019-04-10 17:59:11 by Joaquin Flores in Anglo-5, China, Fake-News, Headline-News, Japan, Russia, United-States

TOKYO – A U.S built F-35 multirole fighter, in the service of the Japanese defense forces, crashed hours ago. U.S officials have expressed concerns that it be found and recovered as soon as possible. The crash occurred Tuesday, and there is now a rush to find the much ridiculed fighter. The U.S appears to be concerned that if the Chinese or Russians were to find the jet first, they would learn how never to construct a 5th generation multirole fighter. The Japanese F-35 fighter jet missing in the Pacific could be a major security headache for the U.S if Russia or… Continue ->

Brazil – The Conundrum of Zionist Bolsonaro’s Ahistorical Nazism

Published 2019-04-10 17:35:57 by Curwen Ares Rolinson in Brazil, Israel, Latin-America, Opinions, Politics

Several days ago, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro made headlines for his visit to a Holocaust memorial in Israel. Not so much for the visit itself, of course – it’s the sort of thing that is almost de rigueur for newly minted world leaders heading to that particular country on political pilgrimages. But rather, for his ensuing statement upon exiting the remembrance center, about those archetypal villains of the narrative of the 20th Century, the Nazis. Namely, that they were of the “left”. Now, for what it’s worth – I actually do not necessarily disagree with Bolsonaro saying that Nazism was… Continue ->

LISBON – The US special representative for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, is in Portugal to ask for greater cooperation from the European country in the efforts against President Nicolás Maduro and spoke about the situation in Caracas.

The US representative met with Portuguese Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva. “The objective is to discuss how we, the US and Portugal, see the situation in Venezuela, what we can do to be more… Continue ->

Serbia: Army’s Anti-Coup Statement is Aimed at U.S Backed Provocateur Vuk Jeremic

Published 2019-04-10 16:37:24 by Joaquin Flores in Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Russia, Serbia, United-States

BELGRADE – Responding to confusion that the previous statements from the Serbian Army might not be a direct reference to the U.S backed provocateur, Vuk Jeremic, and the One in Five Million opposition ‘movement’, Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin proceeded to answer questions arising from media and social media pundits. He said that internal enemies are all those who would be violent to achieve anything. He made direct reference to the movement’s attempted take-over of the state-run TV station, ‘RTS’ (Radio and Television of Serbia) just recently. Specifically, Vulin told the privately owned Pink television that yesterday’s announcement of the military… Continue ->

Why are Russian MiG-29 fighters still important to India?

Published 2019-04-10 15:21:40 by Paul Antonopoulos in Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, India, Russia

NEW DELHI – Today the Indian Armed Forces has more than 70 MiG-29 fighters, although they also have more modern and heavy planes, like the Su-30MKI. The Russkoe Oruzhie portal explains the reasons why Indian pilots continue to use Soviet and Russian production planes, preferring them over the French Rafale. As the portal indicates, the MiG-29s are reliable, maneuverable aircraft with good attack characteristics. The main task of the MiG-29 is to repulse the Pakistani F-16s on the western Indian frontier, something with which it handles very well. Before the heaviest fighters went into service with the Indian Air Force,… Continue ->

Published 2019-04-10 11:54:22 by Joaquin Flores in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Turkey, United-States

ANKARA –  Turkey may conclude another deal with Russia for the supply of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems if the United States ultimately refuses to supply the country with Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. This possibility was announced on Wednesday in an interview with NTV television channel by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu. “If the United States does not want to sell us the Patriot system, then tomorrow we can purchase a second S-400 complex, we can also purchase other air defense systems,” said the foreign minister.

Why does Russia plan to equip submarines with 200 Carrier Destroyer Kalibr missiles?

Published 2019-04-10 10:35:09 by Paul Antonopoulos in Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – According to Vice Admiral Oleg Burtsev, Russia could equip its giant submarines with hundreds of Kalibr, Oniks and Tsirkon missiles. Russia already has a lot of experience in the total modernization of submarines. In the late 1960s, three Navaga 667 strategic submarines were transformed into multipurpose nuclear attack submarines. The fifth compartment with ballistic missile launchers was replaced by a new one with eight torpedo tubes. The three ships were part of the Northern Fleet until the 2000s. However, the effect of the Akula modernization could be even greater, experts tell Military Watch Magazine. Equipped with about 200… Continue ->

Analysts have estimated what consequences a Brazilian invasion could have. “Let’s suppose there is a military invasion there [Venezuela], the decision will be mine, but I will listen to the National Defense Council, and then the Brazilian Congress, to take the de facto decision on the issue there,” said Bolsonaro in an interview with Rádio Jovem Pan. The president also said that a possible conflict in Venezuela would… Continue ->
