MAJOR: China STOPS buying US agricultural products

BEIJING – The Chinese Ministry of Commerce said Monday that Chinese companies had suspended purchases of US agricultural products. Earlier on Monday, US media reported that Beijing had asked state-owned companies to suspend imports of US agricultural products. The measure is part of the trade war between China and the US. US President Donald Trump recently threatened the Chinese by imposing a 10% tariff on $ 300 billion in imports of products from China. “China’s market capacity is large, with bright prospects for importing high-quality agricultural products from the US,” the ministry said, saying it expects Washington to keep its… Continue ->

Mayor of Hiroshima to Shinzo Abe: why hasn’t Japan signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty?

Commemoration of Hiroshima, at Hiroshima The picture above is a screen capture from the German FAZ site.  Das Bild also posts it. I translate Das Bild’s caption: “06. August 1945: The fateful day, which cost the lives of so many people in the port city. 74 years ago, US forces dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. By the end of 1945, the death toll had officially been estimated at 140,000. My favorite comment, to be followed by a report from the scene: Yes, the past can still wring sorrow. One can either run away from it, or learn from… Continue ->

IRAQ – [SANA/FRN] – In a new breach of the international laws and conventions, the US brought a  convoy of hundreds of trucks and military vehicles affiliated to the so-called “International Coalition” to  al-Qamishli City in support for Qasad separatist militias which besiege locals and attack them and steal oil in the eastern region. These moves follow an ongoing strategy on the part of the US to partition Iraq and Syria in order to create a Kurdistan, with support from Israel.

The US, Russia and China top the Global Firepower 2019 index. The ranking considers 55 variable factors. Brazil leads among the Latin American countries. In 2019, the annual Global Firepower ranking included 137 countries in order of military might.

However, the index does not consider the nuclear power and current political and military leadership of countries. Top 5 The US has… Continue ->

SOLAR STORMS: Swirls in Solar Atmosphere and Magnetic Plasma

Published 2019-08-06 15:16:20 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Science, United-Kingdom

Scientists have discovered previously undetected observational evidence of frequent energetic wave pulses the size of the UK, transporting energy from the solar surface to the higher solar atmosphere. An international team of scientists led by the University of Sheffield has discovered previously undetected observational evidence of frequent energetic wave pulses the size of the UK, transporting energy from the solar surface to the higher solar atmosphere. Magnetic plasma waves and pulses have been widely suggested as one of the key mechanisms which could answer the long-standing question of why the temperature of the solar atmosphere rises dramatically, from thousands to… Continue ->

Chinese, Indian Scientists: Geoengineering Volcanoes Might be Our Best Shot at Stopping Climate Change

Published 2019-08-06 14:15:41 by Drago Bosnic in China, Eurasia, Headline-News, India, Science

Major volcanic eruptions spew ash particles into the atmosphere, which reflect some of the Sun’s radiation back into space and cool the planet. But could this effect be intentionally recreated to fight climate change? A new paper in Geophysical Research Letters investigates. Solar geoengineering is a theoretical approach to curbing the effects of climate change by seeding the atmosphere with a regularly replenished layer of intentionally released aerosol particles. Proponents sometimes describe it as being like a man-made volcano. “Nobody likes the idea of intentionally tinkering with our climate system at a global scale,” said Carnegie’s Ken Caldeira. “Even if we… Continue ->

DAMASCUS – A senior Syrian parliamentarian warned against a new plan by Washington and Riyadh to set up new terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria after their defeats in the region. “The US presently intends to pave the way for the emergence of terrorist groups under new names and appearances in Syria and Iraq by creating a chaotic situation in the region,” the Arabic-language al-Rased news website quoted Syrian lawmaker Mohammad Jookhdar as saying. Jookhdar noted that Saudi Arabia will also support this US’ measure, and said that after the US defeat and its allied terrorists vis-à-vis Iraqi and Syrian… Continue ->

VIDEO: How Georgia’s anti-Russian stance ruined its economy

Published 2019-08-06 11:15:47 by Drago Bosnic in Eurasia, Georgia, Headline-News, Russia

Tbilisi – The West had a profoundly malign influence on Georgia. After the 2008 war when Georgia, led by probably the worst leader in its history and also instigated by NATO, stupidly attacked Russian peacekeepers in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which resulted in an absolute disaster for the Georgians, the country’s leadership has been fostering Russophobia ever since. The two countries have never been at odds before. On the contrary. In the last 300 years, Russian troops saved Georgia from numerous Ottoman massacres and slave raids and Georgia was well-integrated into the Russian society, although it still kept its ancient… Continue ->

Published 2019-08-06 10:15:07 by Drago Bosnic in Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Science

MOSCOW – Russian military recently completed a highly successful rearmament program. The new rearmament program has already started (in 2018) and will last until 2027. Russia’s already highly effective military force is to become even deadlier by late 2020s. Still, Sarmat ICBMs, upgraded Su-57 fifth-generation multirole fighter jets, advanced hypersonic weapons, Sukhoi’s S-70 Okhotnik and MiG’s Skat UCAVs, various platforms of the Armata program, heavily modernized T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks, new high-tech corvettes, and many other new developments are not the only ones. The Russian military is also interested in advanced artificial intelligence. The new prototypes spotted at the… Continue ->

The Strange Case of Chrystia Freeland and the Failure of the ‘Super Elite’

Published 2019-08-06 08:00:07 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Canada, Crimea, Russia, United-Kingdom, United-States

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland has become a bit of a living parody of everything wrong with the detached technocratic neo-liberal order which has driven the world through 50 years of post-industrial decay. Now, two years into the Trump presidency, and five years into the growth of a new system shaped by the Russia-China alliance, the world has become a very different place from the one which Freeland and her controllers wish it to be. Having been set up as a counterpart to the steely Hillary Clinton who was supposed to win the 2016 election, Freeland and her ilk have demonstrated… Continue ->
