Published 2019-10-21 23:23:25 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Isis, Mena, Nato, Politics, Syria, Turkey, United-States

DAMASCUS – The Damascus government sent a large number of army troops to northeastern Syria amid reports about a new Turkish assault despite an agreement that calls on Ankara to halt its military operation to allow the Kurdish militias withdraw 20 miles to the south from the border. According to a military source in Hasaka province, the Syrian Army has sent several reinforcements to the Tel Tamar, Ein Al-Arab (Kobani), Ain Issa and Al-Tabaqa fronts in order to fortify its positions and prevent any future advances by the Turkish Armed Forces and their militant allies in the region.

Syria Now… Libya Next? Erdogan Plays Both Sides

Published 2019-10-21 23:04:58 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Isis, Libya, Mena, Nato, Politics, Syria, Turkey, United-States

By Steve Brown – As the dust settles in Syria subsequent to the US exit from the debacle that it so created in 2011, the festering sore that is Libya must once again come to the fore.  Recall that Hillary Clinton and Mahmoud Jibril made the case for regime change in Libya and although the US seemingly abandoned oil-rich Libya after the Benghazi attacks, the US is still running clandestine operations in Libya from Tunisia.    The United States Central Intelligence Agency flies surveillance and attack drones from Sidi Ahmed air base to attack tribal leaders that it suspects of having… Continue ->

Published 2019-10-21 16:00:16 by Paul Antonopoulos in Brazil, Headline-News, Ksa, Latin-America, Mena

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Brazil campaigned to prevent the country from occupying one of two vacant Latin American seats on the United Nations Human Rights Council (UN) for the period of 2020-2022. “Brazilian civil society organizations express their deep and serious concern about Brazil’s candidacy for the United Nations Human Rights Council for the three-year period 2020-2022,” said a manifesto signed by more than 190 organizations released days ago. This comes as Brazil under President Jair Bolsonaro has continually been accused of human rights abuses. Ultimately, the organized effort to prevent Brazil from joining the UN Human Rights Council failed,… Continue ->

Russia: Turkish operation in Syria increases global terrorist threat

Published 2019-10-21 15:00:55 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Russia, Syria, Turkey

MOSCOW – Arrests of foreign terrorists were unprotected due to the Turkish military operation in Syria. That could trigger a wave of terrorist migration to their home countries, warned Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. Turkey launched an offensive in northern Syria on 9 October to combat Kurdish militias on the Turkish border and establish a safe area in the north-east of the Arab country to accommodate thousands of refugees. On October 17, Turkey and the US celebrated a 120-hour ceasefire in Syria for Syrian Kurds to withdraw their forces 30 kilometers from the Turkish border. “The actions of the Turkish… Continue ->

The Return of the IMF’s Neoliberal Order to Ecuador Can See Moreno Ousted

Published 2019-10-21 14:00:21 by Paul Antonopoulos in Headline-News, Latin-America

QUITO – Nearly two weeks of protests against Ecuadorean President Lenín Moreno has turned Quito, the country’s capital, into a battlefield featuring fire, shooting and even people killed. The situation has become so desperate that the government announced a curfew on Saturday that curiously begins every day at three o’clock in the afternoon, rather than nightfall, but been completely ignored by the people. This has done little to alleviate the frustrations of the protestors, who come from all sectors of Ecuadorean society, including indigenous, students and workers. However, despite the mass mobilization, it is the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of… Continue ->

Russia-Turkey continue path of de-Dollarizing their economies together

Published 2019-10-21 13:01:16 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Turkey

Any move to de-Dollarize an economy must be done through various means such as increasing purchases in gold, trading in local currencies and move towards virtual currency such as various different types of cryptos. With delegates from 44 countries agreeing to create a global monetary system as the U.S. Dollar abandoned the gold standard in 1944 in the city of Bretton Woods, this led to fierce criticism across the world. This effectively made the U.S. dollar become the main international currency and the rate was set with the gold reserves of the United States, which at that time was almost… Continue ->

LONDON – Ministers are insisting that the UK will leave the EU by the current Brexit deadline of October 31, despite the government being forced by parliament to ask the bloc for an extension.

European Council President Donald Tusk confirmed that he had received the letter and will start consulting EU leaders about “how to react”. Despite this, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and his fellow cabinet minister Michael Gove insisted on… Continue ->

Published 2019-10-21 00:08:48 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Turkey

Moscow and Ankara signed in 2017 a purchase and sale agreement with delivery of the S-400 systems to Turkey. Deliveries have begun to take place in recent months. “I think there is a high probability. They have this option, they have the right to implement it,” Borisov told reporters, answering whether new air defense system delivery contracts to Turkey are possible.
