On November 16, an seminar was held in Montreal Canada entitled “The Art of Peace: The New Silk Road Counters an Age of Turbulence” hosted by the Rising Tide Foundation, featuring six speakers tackling the multi-faceted New Silk Road from artistic, engineering, historical, philosophical and scientific standpoints. Presentation 1: A new epoch of cooperation and win-win development has begun to emerge with China’s New Silk Road and the growing array of nations joining the new “multi-polar” order in opposition to the collapsing “uni-polar” zero sum system that has grown over-bloated under decades of consumerism, empire and short term thinking….

Published 2019-12-09 19:00:20 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Crime, Defense, Finance, Headline-News, United-States

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A defense contractor overcharged the Pentagon by more than $1.2 billion for thousands of armored vehicles, a whistleblower’s complaint alleged, while the company threatened employees who refused to go along with the grift. With Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attacks responsible for more than six in ten deaths of US personnel in Iraq and four in ten deaths in Afghanistan in 2007, the Pentagon solicited designs for a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle to replace its thin-skinned Humvees. The military hoped the vehicles’ thickened armor and explosion-deflecting v-shaped hulls would save lives on the battlefield, RT reported. Navistar… Continue ->

Published 2019-12-09 18:00:31 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Color-Revolution, Eurasia, Headline-News, Libya, Mena, Nato, Politics, Russia, United-States

TRIPOLI – The US Africa Command announced on Saturday that an unarmed American drone had been shot down by Russian air defense systems near the capital city of Tripoli in November, and demanded the return of the unmanned aircraft’s wreckage. The operators of the air defense systems “didn’t know it was a US remotely piloted aircraft when they fired on it. But they certainly know who it belongs to now and they are refusing to return it. They say they don’t know where it is but I am not buying it”, General Stephen Townsend, who leads the Africa Command, told… Continue ->

NATO Doesn’t Care That Montenegro Is a Haven For Crime and Corruption

Published 2019-12-09 17:30:54 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, Montenegro, Nato

There was international jubilation when Montenegro seceded from its union with Serbia in 2006 after a controversial referendum. The Referendum Law prevented Montenegrins living and registered in Serbia from voting in the referendum, ensuring that tens of thousands of Montenegrins, in a country of only 622,000, who would have voted to remain the union could not vote in favour of maintaining it. It must be remembered that state-paid workers like teachers and police were told by the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) leader Miodrag Vuković before the referendum May 2006, that someone “cannot work for the state and vote against… Continue ->

Published 2019-12-09 17:00:42 by Drago Bosnic in Crime, Headline-News, Ksa, Mena

RIYADH – Amnesty International condemned as “outrageous” the continued detention of prominent Saudi human rights lawyer Waleed Abu al-Khair and his ill-treatment, as a crackdown led by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman against Muslim preachers, members of the press and intellectuals widens in the conservative oil-rich kingdom. The London-based organization said in a statement that it had received credible reports that authorities at Dhahban Central Prison near the Red Sea port city of Jeddah had in late November arbitrarily placed Abu al-Khair in solitary confinement under tightened security, PressTV reported. He has been on hunger strike since November 29 in… Continue ->

LISBON – Despite Washington’s attempts to turn its allies away from working with Chinese telecom giant Huawei, Portugal is not going to exclude the company from the rollout of 5G networks on its territory.

On Friday, China’s Foreign Ministry lauded Portugal’s decision, calling on other countries to make their own independent choices on the matter. During his visit to Lisbon, Pompeo once again warned against bringing in 5G “untrusted networks”, hinting at Huawei and… Continue ->

Published 2019-12-09 15:00:37 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Crime, Headline-News, Latin-America, Mexico, Politics, United-States

MEXICO CITY – With the administration of President Donald Trump considering declaring Mexican drug cartels terrorist organizations, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador insisted that he does not want US military intervention against them. Mexico’s drug cartels make billions of dollars per year on illegal drug sales in the US and have been locked into a bloody conflict with the Mexican government for over a decade. The Mexican Drug War has claimed tens of thousands of lives since 2007, and the recent mass murder of nine Americans in an apparent ambush near the US border prompted Trump to offer Mexico… Continue ->

Israel threatens Iran to leave Syria: We will not hesitate to remove aggressive forces

Published 2019-12-09 14:30:35 by Paul Antonopoulos in Headline-News, Iran, Israel, Mena, Syria

Tel Aviv has repeatedly accused Tehran of sending troops and deploying its weapons in Syria with the aim of attacking Israel.

Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett warned Iran that Syria could become a lasting and unpleasant war that the Persian country will not be able to win, compared to the Vietnam War, in which the US was involved in the second half of the 20th century and eventually lost. “We’re telling the Iranians: Syria will become their Vietnam. If they don’t leave, they will be entrenched and… Continue ->
