Published 2019-07-18 22:45:36 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Iran, Mena, United-States

PERSIAN GULF – July 18, 2019 – US President Donald Trump stated on Thursday that a USN ship shot down an Iranian drone over the Strait of Hormuz.

TEXAS: About That Petition to Zelensky…

Published 2019-07-18 21:56:19 by Russell Bentley in Donbass, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Ukraine

You may have recently heard something about a “petition” addressed to Zelensky with “a million signatures”. Pay it no mind. It is nothing. Nobody signed it, it is just a joke. The People of the Donbass Republics and our Armies ask nothing from the “President of Ukraine”. The President of Ukraine has no power here, no say here, so why should we petition him for anything? And besides, Zelensky is not the President of Ukraine. He is a puppet and pretender for foreign masters who have robbed and debauched the once-great nation of Ukraine into a desperate and malignant shithole… Continue ->

Israeli & Christian Zionists Eye up War on Iran: A Conundrum Of Evil

Published 2019-07-18 19:12:31 by Ronald Thomas West in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Iran, Israel, Mena, Opinions, United-States

The Israeli Zionists and Christian Zionists have both; common and opposed motivations for war with Iran. The Israelis well know the Christians fully intend all Jews will either convert or die at the Battle of Armageddon according to their perverted theology but meanwhile the two sleep together, the Israelis self-destructively milking the USA war machine to realize the Yinon Plan (Greater Israel in a ‘Balkanized’ Middle East) while the Christian ‘Dominionists’ ‘prayerfully’ support these endeavors in pursuit of what will amount to Götterdämmerung for both. Relevant to this preceding, a present conundrum of evil is not who and whether, but… Continue ->

CARACAS – Washington has introduced harsh sanctions against the Venezuelan economy, further aggravating the current economic crisis in the South American country in an attempt to force President Maduro to resign.

Published 2019-07-18 17:15:46 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Turkey, United-Kingdom, United-States

The buyer was its present Chinese parent,… Continue ->

July 18, 2019  – Prince Charles has just given the world 18 months to save the world. Over the past years, the prince and his father (among other inbred aristocrats of Europe) have taken an incredible interest in the safety of the earth from the pollution emitting machines who greedily consume and reproduce without any consideration for Mother Gaia.
