ANTONOPOULOS: NATO Looks to Latin America

Published 2019-07-31 21:57:35 by Drago Bosnic in Colombia, Defense, Headline-News, Latin-America, Nato, Opinions

Originally published on Geopolitica – Mr. Paul Antonopoulos is a geopolitical expert and an accomplished author. This is his latest take on NATO involvement in Latin America. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or more commonly known as NATO, seems to be readjusting its focus, especially when considering Colombia is already part of the organization as a partner – and both NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and US President Donald Trump already announced in April 2019 that Brazil had many options to be the next country to obtain the status of “global partner” of the Alliance. The US with Argentina, Brazil… Continue ->

Russia Protests: What Western Media Doesn’t Show You

Published 2019-07-31 18:47:04 by Drago Victorien in Color-Revolution, Eurasia, Headline-News, Politics, Russia

The devil is in the details: knives, pepper spray, tear gas. Peaceful protests? Recorded instances of provocations and violence against the police seemed not to be shown in Western media and inconvenient facts about half of those detained in Moscow not even being residents of Moscow were excluded. During agreed demonstrations, there were no excesses from the police, but that did not seem to be enough for the activists that seemed to have other goals in mind. What really happened on the 27th of July? – Drago Victorien


Twitter blocks Russian Embassy in Syria account for criticizing Al-Qaeda White Helmets.

Published 2019-07-31 17:30:14 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Russia, Syria

The NGO White Helmets claims to be politically neutral and non-belligerent, dedicated to the protection of civilians in Syria, although together with the videos in which the White Helmets rescue children from the ruins, the images in which they are publish show intentional manipulation by putting makeup on the victims and dictating what they should declare before the cameras. The Russian Foreign Ministry describes the work of the White Helmets as an element of the information war directed against Damascus. In addition, there is countless evidence that the White Helmets are just affiliates of Al-Qaeda. Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey… Continue ->

ANKARA – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned Israel and its allies for allowing a “state of terror […] in Palestine,” declaring: “Whoever is on Israel’s side, know that we are against them.” “We do not approve of the silence about Israel’s shameless terror in Palestine,” Erdogan said, addressing senior provincial officials from his Ankara Justice and Development Party, according to Iranian PressTV.

Published 2019-07-31 15:30:42 by Paul Antonopoulos in Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America, Venezuela

BOA VISTA, Brazil – This Tuesday, when the World Day to Combat Trafficking in Persons is celebrated, Brazil does not have much to celebrate, being the destination of a growing flow of Venezuelan women brought here for the purpose of sexual exploitation. After all, what does the country need to do to combat this problem more effectively? With a deep economic crisis that has been affecting the country for years, Venezuela has seen a sharp migratory flow of its citizens to several neighboring countries. In situations of misery and despair, many of these migrants end up in a series of… Continue ->

Published 2019-07-31 15:16:18 by Drago Bosnic in Eurasia, Headline-News, Ukraine

Chernobyl, Ukraine – The National Guard of Ukraine confirmed to journalists that they periodically conduct military exercises in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, Deutsche Welle reports.

However, sometimes Pripyat (the city which was evacuated after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster) is closed… Continue ->

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Moussavi warned that his country’s two-month deadline that started earlier this month is the last opportunity given to the Europeans to meet Iran’s demand to implement their nuclear deal undertakings. “I think it will be the last opportunity for the nuclear deal parties.

He explained that Iran’s third step will be stronger than the past… Continue ->

Published 2019-07-31 13:45:02 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, United-States

BEIJING – China’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the United States was to blame for flip-flopping in bilateral trade talks, after President Donald Trump warned Beijing against waiting out his first term to finalize any trade deal, adding that if he wins the re-election, the outcome will be worse for China. “When conducting trade and economic negotiations, the US must give up its pressure tactics. The US must prove its sincerity and act honestly to reach a trade agreement,” she noted at a briefing, RIA Novosti reported. Earlier, as US-China trade negotiations were underway in Shanghai, Trump underlined that… Continue ->

Orenburg, Russian Federation – Orenburg Region (Orenburzhye) is an important region in the south of central Russia, stretched along Russia’s border with Kazakhstan. During the 1990s it suffered greatly, especially under the IMF-advised policies of Russia’s traitors, liberal shock-therapy economists selling Russia’s economic giants for pennies. It all lasted until the early 2000s when new authorities decided to put a stop to it. The region started a long-overdue revival. In 2009, the revival was slowed down during the global recession crisis, but it soon recovered. However, the Western sanctions aiming to weaken Russia soon reached the Orenburg region. And that’s… Continue ->

Published 2019-07-31 11:15:29 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Ukraine, United-States

KIEV – The Ukrainian president is to discuss the details of another IMF tranche. It’s the second week that the fund’s experts have been working in Kiev. They’re collecting statistical data and checking whether reforms are being carried out. Kiev is to carry them out in exchange for financial assistance. What could this mean for an average Ukrainian citizen? Well, if we take the entire history of the International Monetary Fund into consideration, nothing good. When IMF experts (some might call them economic hitmen) come to your country, all you could expect is lower wages, higher taxes and thus, lower… Continue ->
