BEIJING – Military giant shows for the first time the command center of its People’s Liberation Army Missile Force. The video was published on the occasion of the 92th anniversary of the Chinese Armed Forces on August 1.

The moon is much, MUCH older than first anticipated

Published 2019-08-05 17:30:31 by Paul Antonopoulos in Headline-News, Science

The chemical traces of the lunar rocks show that the moon formed in the first 50 million years of the solar system’s existence. According to the Big Bang cosmological theory, the strongest hypothesis for now, the moon formed from the fused fragments of the planet Theia, which collided with Earth in the early stages of its existence. Scientists believe the event took place between 200 and 300 million years after the formation of the Solar System. However, the authors of a new study, published in the journal Nature Geoscience, say that this occurred even earlier during the first 50 million… Continue ->

Published 2019-08-05 16:30:42 by Paul Antonopoulos in Headline-News, Iran, Mena

TEHRAN – At least 12 Iranian oil tankers continue to transport oil to Asia and the Mediterranean despite US sanctions, according to an investigation by The New York Times. More than 70 Iranian tankers have been tracked by The New York Times through satellite imagery and other resources. After May 2, when sanctions against Tehran began, 12 of these ships were still supplying oil. Half of them transported oil to China, while others went to the Mediterranean Sea, possibly to Syria and Turkey. The continued flow of oil shows the difficulty that the Trump government has in using sanctions in… Continue ->

CANBERRA – Australia’s Defense Minister Linda Reynolds ruled out the possibility that her country would provide a base for US mid-range missiles.

US officially delusional, says China destabilizes Indo-Pacific with ‘aggressive’ behavior

Published 2019-08-05 14:30:09 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Headline-News, United-States

SYDNEY – China is destabilizing the Indo-Pacific, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Sunday, accusing Beijing of practicing predatory economics, intellectual property theft and weapons of global goods. Esper’s comments on his first trip abroad as US Secretary of Defense threaten to inflame the already strained relations between Washington and Beijing, which are experiencing a growing trade war. China’s increasing assertiveness, especially in the South China Sea, is creating concern in the region, and Washington is challenging Chinese maritime hegemony and seeking stronger ties with nations that challenge Beijing. “We firmly believe no one nation can or should dominate… Continue ->

MAJOR: India revokes special status of Kashmir, war tensions with Pakistan peak (VIDEO)

Published 2019-08-05 12:44:42 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, India, Pakistan

NEW DELHI – The Indian government headed by Narendra Modi, has placed two former Chief Ministers, Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah under house arrest after sending 35,000 paramilitary into Jammu and Kashmir. Expert Jay Tharappel first lamented that this was “possibly because they’re planning on abolishing Articles 35A and 370 guaranteeing special status to Jammu and Kashmir, which thus far has kept the state demographically unaltered by immigration from the rest of India.” He then went onto explain why he believes the Indian government is brewing sectarian tensions between the Hindu and Muslim communities – to keep the ruling “Those… Continue ->

Krajina Serbs’ heroic struggle ended on this day 24 years ago and what Donbass can learn from it (PHOTO/VIDEO)

Published 2019-08-05 10:15:40 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Croatia, Defense, Donbass, Eu, Eurasia, Germany, Headline-News, Nato, Opinions, Politics, Serbia, United-States

BELGRADE – Earlier, we have covered the story of what the “Croatian scenario” is and what does it have to do with the War in Donbass. Today, that topic is even more relevant and it is because of an event that took place exactly 24 years ago. Novorossiya has been going through almost the same troubles as did the Republic of Serbian Krajina 24 years ago. Perhaps that’s why the Serbs form one of the largest non-Russian volunteer groups in Donbass. They know exactly how the people of Donbass feel. They’ve been through all that already. And their Russian brothers… Continue ->
