Liberation of Idlib, PART I: Road to Khan Sheikhoun (VIDEOS)

Published 2019-08-24 18:45:26 by Drago Bosnic in Defense, Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Politics, Russia, Syria

Idlib, Syria – The SAA (Syrian Arab Army) has been very successful in destroying the head-chopping “moderates” all across Syria. This is especially true for the now-legendary Tiger Forces. Being the spearhead of Syria’s war effort is anything but an easy task. Since Russian forces’ involvement in the Syrian war, the Tiger Forces have been resupplied and reequipped with new small arms, transports and even armor. Russia supplied AK-74M assault riffles, Rys LMV tactical vehicles and last but not least, the T-90 tanks. Coupled with Russian training, the presence of their advisors, pinpoint accuracy of Russian airstrikes, as well as… Continue ->

Published 2019-08-24 18:30:29 by Guest Author in Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America

Lucas Leiroz de Almeida is a Research Fellow in International Law at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). RIO DE JANEIRO – Foreign Policy, one of the most renowned American journals in international studies, founded by Samuel Huntington himself, published in its latest issue an article by Stephen Walt, a Harvard International Relations Professor, publicly defending the possibility of an international environmental intervention in Brazil. The text begins by exposing a hypothetical scenario in a near future, in which the US president would publicly announce an ultimatum to the Brazilian government to stop the excessive deforestation of the… Continue ->

Published 2019-08-24 17:30:42 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – Russia has set a new record for the number of centenarians aged 100 years and older. This is evidenced by the latest data from Rosstat, which Izvestia has reviewed. As of January 1, 2019, there were 20,582 such citizens in the country, which is almost 17% more than in 2017. Moreover, the number of people who have crossed the centenary has been growing at a steady pace for eight consecutive years and almost tripled during that time. Demographers explain such high and stable indicators not only by the fact that Russians began to live longer, but also by… Continue ->

NOGUEIRA: ‘Brazilian Evangelicals have stronger influence than liberal left’

Published 2019-08-24 16:30:10 by Guest Author in Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America

SAO PAULO – One of the reasons that Brazil can be said to have turned rather far to the right is religion. In his first speech, President Jair Messias Bolsonaro, praised voters for allowing the country to ‘march now on the right path’ in October 2018. Is evangelism a new force to be reckoned with in Brazil? Mr. Nogueira Sousa, anthropologist and member of Nova Resistência (or New Resistance) in Brazil, joined Sputnik radio to discuss this issue. Nogueira says that evangelicals have been important for quite some time, and are in fact the third force in Brazilian politics. “For… Continue ->

North Korean FM calls Pompeo ‘poison of American diplomacy’

Published 2019-08-24 14:30:15 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, North-Korea, United-States

PYONGYANG – After threats from Pompeo, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho called him “the poison of American diplomacy” and said he “has no shame or conscience.” The latest joint exercises between US and South Korean military forces have raised the degree of tension in the Korean peninsula once again. In one moment, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that if North Korea does not start its denuclearization process, the US will put pressure on the country with harsh sanctions. That statement sparked unease in Pyongyang and resulted in a statement by North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, KCNA… Continue ->

Forgotten Aggression on Yugoslavia: Goals, Consequences and Lessons

Published 2019-08-24 14:13:59 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Crime, Defense, Eu, Eurasia, Headline-News, Kosovo, Nato, Politics, Propaganda, Serbia, United-Kingdom, United-States, Yugoslavia

By Vladimir Gujanicic – This spring we’ve marked the twentieth anniversary of almost forgotten 78-day aggression against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, more precisely today’s Serbia and Montenegro. The US-led NATO mission represented the first major military intervention since the collapse of the Soviet Union, with the aim of achieving global hegemony. This war was very specific in terms of goals, mutual implementation, and methods used to accomplish military-political “solution. After the bloody civil wars in Croatia and Bosnia (the former Yugoslav republics) and the 1995 Dayton Agreement, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia remained the only unincorporated in a new… Continue ->

The New Cuba? Russia considers putting missile installation in Venezuela to counter US

Published 2019-08-24 13:30:22 by Paul Antonopoulos in Cuba, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

MOSCOW – In response to US missile deployment in the Asia-Pacific region, Russia could consider deploying its own systems in Venezuela. According to Aleksandr Sherin, first vice president of the State Duma Defense Committee, that would be a tough but effective answer. “The US and its leaders throughout their history have, unfortunately, only demonstrated that the sensible and proper language of communication, the agreements, does not work with them. Unfortunately, the US only understands brute and crude force. Basically, they only understand what they use themselves,” said SHerin. “The deployment of our systems in Venezuela, for example, [is possible] as… Continue ->

Rewriting history is an act of aggression. But what if it lasts for decades?

Published 2019-08-24 12:50:48 by Guest Author in Albania, Crime, Eurasia, Headline-News, Isis, Kosovo, Nato, Politics, Serbia

By Grey Carter – If the truth is the first casualty of any war, history is the casualty of  every criminal and unjust intention. That’s easy to see through the school books for the Albanian students.  A geography textbook that the Beta news agency has had a chance to see thus reads that “eastern Kosovo” was “given to Serbia” in this way, and that the same is true of the towns of Bar, Podgorica and Plav, which are part of Montenegro. Further, the textbook marks Montenegrin towns of Ulcinj, Plav, Gusinje and Rožaje as “Albanian areas in Montenegro”. Albania first emerged as a… Continue ->
