WASHINGTON, D.C. – The framework of an FBI public ad campaign is set on Facebook and aimed at the Russians living in the US, among whom potential agents are searched for. Some would ask, although it’s quite easy, is trying to recruit people through ads the smartest move. Marketing images aren’t ingenious – a happy couple with a student daughter and a call for the partnership for your family’s happy future. At this point, it seems, the FBI’s knowledge of Russian is dubious, at best. So the details are in English – they say that special agents collect the most… Continue ->

TEHRAN – Iranian Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Qassem Taqizadeh said the US has stopped flights of its U-2 reconnaissance planes over the region for fear of being intercepted by Iran’s increasingly effective air defense system. “The US moves in the region are monitored every hour and for instance, the flights of the US U-2 planes which took off from Cyprus and flew twice over the region stopped after Iran made and operated Bavar 373 air defense system and after they found out that the system can track and destroy them (the U-2 planes),” General Taqizadeh said, addressing a ceremony… Continue ->

US Sanctions Don’t Work

Published 2019-10-06 09:00:34 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Color-Revolution, Eu, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Iran, Mena, Nato, North-Korea, Politics, Russia, Ukraine, United-States

WACHINGTON, D.C. – The US government departments involved in enforcing economic sanctions against other countries say they do not know whether the coercive measures actually work.

But they haven’t determined whether sanctions really work – nor are the agencies required to do so.” Tell that to the State Department, which continues to take part in the lie, water it down and make it logical. Although the damning… Continue ->
