Is Greece Becoming A Weaponized Anti-Russian Small Power? (MAP)

Published 2019-09-28 16:36:47 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Greece-Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Turkey

According to an exclusive report published by Greek online media Rizospastis this week, within the framework of the “Greece-USA Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement,” Washington and Athens have agreed to expand and increase U.S. military installations in the Mediterranean country. This comes off the recent U.S. announcement that it wants to privatize the port of Alexandroupolis near the strategic Dardenelles. U.S.-Turkish relations have traditionally been strong because of Ankara’s submissiveness to Washington’s demands in the framework of NATO, but have soured in recent years because of the U.S.’s support of the People’s Protection Units (YPG), the Syrian extension of the Turkey-based… Continue ->

Maduro thinks Russia and Venezuela can overcome any difficulties, but is he right?

Published 2019-09-28 15:34:03 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, Venezuela

During a meeting with Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro held on last Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia supports Venezuela’s legitimate government against the continued U.S.-backed coup led by opposition leader Juan Guaidó. However, the Russian president also said he supported the dialogue with different factions of the opposition and stressed that the rejection of talks would be harmful and unreasonable. “Russia consistently supports all legitimate Venezuelan bodies, including the presidential institution and the parliament. In addition, we support the dialogue you, Mr President, and the government have with the opposition. We regard any refusal of dialogue as irrational,… Continue ->

NASA plans to send nuclear rockets to the moon to reduce trip to Mars

Published 2019-09-28 14:32:32 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Headline-News, United-States

WASHINGTON DC – NASA began research on nuclear propulsion in the 1960’s, but abandoned the idea because the Apollo era was in full swing and because of the tremendous cost of reactor testing. However, the idea has been gaining momentum since Trump announced the ambitious deadline for a return to the moon in 2024 and finally the other long-desired target – Mars. The History of Nuclear and Cosmic Exploration will open a new chapter just a few steps from the Redstone test bench in one corner of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where in 1958 the Redstone rocket became the… Continue ->

WAR CRIMES: Despite Peace Talks Ukraine Continues Attacking Donbass, Fires 50 Artillery Shells in a Single Day (VIDEO)

Published 2019-09-28 10:16:14 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Crime, Donbass, Eu, Eurasia, Headline-News, Nato, Politics, United-States

DONBASS – Who runs Ukraine? This is one of the big questions of our age.  Since it gained “independence” in 1991, Ukraine has been a target of cronies, criminals or simply downright despicable people, both domestic and foreign. The country is an epitome of how a collapse looks like. However, this isn’t the only thing modern Ukraine is (in)famous for. There are two more things: Nazis and shelling. In the past 24 hours, Ukrainian forces conducted an intensive shelling of the western suburbs of Donetsk. It was reported by the republic’s People’s Militia. It is estimated that at least 50… Continue ->

Russia’s Progress Continues (VIDEOS)

Published 2019-09-28 09:33:41 by Drago Bosnic in Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Russia

MOSCOW – Russia is known as one of the only two true military superpowers (the other being the United States, while China lacks a truly massive WMD force). However, Russia is not the Soviet Union. This remark is often used to show Russia as a “mere shadow” of the former juggernaut. However, while the Soviet Union spent a staggering 20% of its GDP to fund its massive military, which partially hampered its economic growth and the citizens’ well-being, modern Russia is determined not to repeat such mistakes. At present, Russia spends no more than 4-5% of its GDP on defense… Continue ->

MAJOR: Mont Blanc Glacier on Verge of Collapse (VIDEO)

Published 2019-09-28 06:03:15 by Drago Bosnic in Eu, Eurasia, France-Eurasia, Headline-News, Italy

Mont Blanc, Italy – Climate change is real. The causes, the consequences, ways to fight it, the very question whether we should even try to resist these changes is a matter of a very complex debate. Still, saying there’s no climate change and that we shouldn’t be concerned about the consequences of such changes would be unwise, to say the least. The very question as to how we stop this process soon might turn into a question of how do we actually adapt to this new reality. And the reality looks rather grim when it comes to the sheer magnitude… Continue ->
