How the ‘Real’ America Is in Harmony With the Belt and Road Initiative

Published 2019-08-04 22:31:16 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Defense, Russia, United-States

Since Donald Trump’s 2016 election, waves of strange paradoxes have presented themselves to the world. With the blatant collaboration of nominally “American” forces from the CIA, FBI, NSA, the Pentagon, and MSM who conspired directly with international agencies such as the Five Eyes and MI6 to overthrow Trump, it has become evident that there isn’t one single America, but rather two opposing forces within America acting against each other. So what really is the “real” America? When Donald Trump calls for US-China-Russia collaboration, is that just an anomaly or is something truly American being expressed? In reviewing some history, you might be shocked to discover… Continue ->

MOSCOW – Providing weapons to Iran is the best Russia can do to help the Persian country, especially now that the possibility of the United States and its allies carrying out joint maneuvers in the region is growing.

Today, most of the military-technical cooperation with Iran is blocked by Resolution 2231 of the United Nations Security Council, which plans to maintain the sanctions regime to avoid supplying significant amounts of weapons and military equipment to Iran. “There is no doubt that the United States… Continue ->

VIDEO: Why is Russia’s compulsory military service so successful

Published 2019-08-04 15:15:20 by Drago Bosnic in Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – More often than not, Russia’s compulsory military service is used by Western media to show how the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are allegedly not professional enough and how bad the Armed Forces would fare against an all-volunteer force.  But is it really true? Many countries have compulsory military service. including America’s most important ally – Israel. Without getting into the specifics of the legality of how their Armed Forces are being used, the Israeli military has shown to be quite effective thus far, despite being composed almost entirely of conscripts. Serbian conscripts have also been quite… Continue ->

Here is a screen capture from Military Times about the spill: Here is the essential “A new era for nuclear deterrence? Modernisation, arms control and allied nuclear forces,” published by Canadian Sen. Joseph Day on behalf of the defense and security committee of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, mistakenly included secretive information concerning the… Continue ->

IN DEPTH: The Retainer Solution – The European Union, Libya And Irregular Migration

Published 2019-08-04 09:45:00 by Guest Author in World, Eu, Eurasia, Headline-News, Italy, Libya, Mena, Nato

By Binoy Kampmark – There is a venom in international refugee policy that refuses to go away: officials charged with their tasks, passing on their labours to those who might see the UN Refugee Convention as empty wording, rather than strict injunction carved upon stone.  They have all become manifest in the policy of deferral: humanitarian problems are for others to solve.  We will simply supply monetary assistance, the machinery, the means; the recipients, like time-honored servants, will do the rest. The European Union, and some of its members have their own idea of a glorified servant minding their business… Continue ->
