Canadian Opposition Parties Fill Anti-China Void Left by Freeland’s Ouster

Published 2019-12-18 19:22:10 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Canada, China, Defense, Headline-News, United-States

The major political parties of Canada don’t agree on much, but they have found common ground on one policy: China is evil and any collaboration with this tyranny is an assault on Canadian values. Previously, this anti-China agenda was reserved for Canada’s prize regime change fanatic Chrystia Freeland, who as Foreign Minister successfully alienated nearly every nationalist government on earth, to the point that China’s foreign ministry cancelled its Ambassador’s role in Ottawa and even ceased picking up Freeland’s phone calls. Since Freeland’s ouster as Foreign Minister on November 20, a new effort to rebuild trust and business relations coincided with Francois-Philippe… Continue ->

By Steve Brown – In June of this year we examined why the United States will not attack Iran subsequent to raised tensions in the region. Six months later on the cusp of 2020, the United States has not attacked Iran militarily … yet.  However, Defense Secretary Esper just threatened to deploy 14K more US mercenary* troops to the Middle East. So, let’s examine current US / Israeli intent regarding Iran again by looking at individual tactical elements which may contribute to an overall strategic picture.    One case in point is al Tanf in southeast Syria which lies near the… Continue ->

By Alexekin Rockowia – “Does democracy exist?” is a question that requires a lot of thought to answer, since there are a multitude of facts and opinions to deal with. It can be answered in many ways, which all boil down to a simple yes or no, or even to being inconclusive. I believe that we should first look at the word itself. It originates from the Greek terms δῆμος (dēmos), meaning (common) people, and κράτος (kratos), meaning strength or power, ie. κρατεῖν (kratein), meaning to rule or to govern. The junction of these terms, in the form δημοκρατία (dēmokratía),… Continue ->

The strength of the Turkish military is a BIG MYTH

Published 2019-12-18 12:37:48 by Guest Author in Cyprus, Eurasia, Greece-Eurasia, Headline-News, Turkey

Myth busted…… A lot of hopes has been pinned on the supposed rise of the “New Ottoman Empire” under the guidance of the megalomaniac Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. It’s understandable that many Muslims in the world who mistakenly feel that they are the only ones persecuted and oppressed by the West would cling to the idea of the “Great White Hope”, an idea expertly cultivated by the mini-Sultan. Erdoğan does not miss an opportunity to make references to past “Glorious National Victories”, to the size of the modern Turkish military, to the advanced weapons it has purchased from both… Continue ->

Fr. Vasily Stoikov – In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit! If thou wouldest enter into life, keep the commandments. We hear these words in the Gospel of Matthew’s version of the story we read from the Gospel of Luke today. The Sacred Scriptures of the New Testament repeatedly and in various ways speak of the necessity of fulfilling the commandments, as an indispensable condition for achieving communion with the Lord and blessedness in both the present and future life. Today’s Gospel narrative tells us about how one nobleman, called a ruler,… Continue ->

Kashmir refugee crisis could cause nuclear war between India and Pakistan, says Khan

Published 2019-12-18 04:00:45 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Headline-News, India, Pakistan

NEW DELHI – India’s recent policies in the disputed Kashmir risk creating a serious refugee crisis that could create a domino effect, leading to a total war with neighboring Pakistan, warned Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. Khan made his remarks when he opened the UN-sponsored Global Refugee Forum in Geneva, Switzerland, on Tuesday. He warned that if India tried to change the demographics of its Muslim-majority region in Kashmir, it would trigger “another refugee crisis that would overcome other crises. From there, the resulting chaos and tensions could turn into an open conflict between India and Pakistan,” he warned. “We… Continue ->

Why is the Russian Su-27 was better choice for China than the American F-16

Published 2019-12-18 00:59:39 by Paul Antonopoulos in China, Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

BEIJING – Chinese media explained why choosing China to adopt the Russian Su-27 fighter instead of the American F-16 was a wise decision decades ago. While Sino-US relations were enjoying good times, more than 20 years ago, China decided to arm itself with Russian Su-27 fighters. As explained by the Chinese portal Sina Military, at the time the Chinese had in mind to acquire the American F-16 fighter. However, China had not yet become the economic powerhouse that it is today, lacking the resources to buy the aircraft. Meanwhile, the Chinese had the J-8III fighter as their best piece of… Continue ->
