By Vladimir Gujanicic – “We lost our lead” was a sentence repeatedly uttered by Senator McCain during the last years of his life. Few people understood what he really wanted to say. A few years after that, it gradually became clear to everyone. Breakdown of the patterns of interventions by America and its allies in Syria, and the Middle East in general, was a key moment, after which the very concept of American alliances began to disintegrate. Even after the first cruise missile strike approved by President Donald Trump, Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglu declared “Turkey is ready to follow America.”… Continue ->

Novozhivotov, Ukraine, January 2, 2020 – Though conditions are said to have improved for the canonical Ukrainian Orthodox Church under President Vladimir Zelensky, the schismatic nationalists of the so-called “Orthodox Church of Ukraine” have not given up their efforts to force parishes and people into their schismatic structure. Police in the Vinnytsia Province recently opened criminal proceedings after OCU schismatics brutally beat several clergymen and laymen while attempting to seize the Holy Protection Church in the village of Novozhivotov, reports the Union of Orthodox Journalists.

MAJOR: Huawei And Other Chinese Firms Push Google Out of Asia

Published 2020-01-02 15:00:03 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, China, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, Politics, United-States

BEIJING – Chinese giants Huawei and Oppo plan to create an alternative to Google mobile services and seek cooperation with Indian developers. Their success may spell an end to Android’s market domination in Asia, and possibly beyond. For now, the global dominance of the Google-owned Android mobile operating system (OS) may seem to be without a challenge. It comfortably holds a share amounting to a whopping 76 percent of the mobile OS market worldwide. But clouds are already gathering over the US company and, if it gets shoved out of a massive segment of the market, it will only have… Continue ->

NEW YORK – Nils Melzer, the UN’s torture expert, published on 31 December a letter that he sent to the British government in which he blasts their failure to address the fact that Julian Assange has been tortured. Melzer published the letter, dated 29 October 2019, after noting on Twitter that more than 60 days had elapsed without a response from UK authorities, RIA Novosti reported. He characterized the government’s continued failure to cease the unlawful treatment of the WikiLeaks publisher, and its failure to investigate the complicity of British officials, as a violation of the UK’s international legal obligations….

Hong Kong, China – Only 17 percent of Hong Kong residents are in favor of seeking independence from China and almost half blame the city government for civil unrest, rather than the government in Beijing, a new poll showed. The Reuters survey conducted by the Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute shows that, while 59 percent of residents support the anti-government protest movement, they are still overwhelmingly against independence from China.

Putin Reminds the West: Those Who Ignore History Are Doomed to Repeat it

Published 2020-01-02 04:42:23 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Defense, Headline-News, Russia, United-Kingdom, United-States

President Putin recently stirred up a hornets nest by reminding the western nations of their own complicity in supporting the rise of Nazism long before the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was signed on August 23, 1939. What was this hornets’ nest exactly? Between December 19 and 24, Putin responded on several occasions to the dangerous revival of fascism sweeping across Europe by calling out the Polish Ambassador to Germany Józef Lipski (1934-1939) as “scum and an anti-Semitic pig, there is no other way of describing him… He shared Hitler’s anti-Semitic sentiment and moreover, he promised to erect a monument in Warsaw for the… Continue ->
