Rouhani shames Johnson – If not for Soleimani, London Would Already be ISIS Target

Published 2020-01-09 18:31:56 by Joaquin Flores in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Iran, Iraq, Mena, United-Kingdom

TEHRAN, Jan. 09 (MNA) – “If it were not for Martyr Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani’s efforts, you wouldn’t enjoy security in London today,” said President Rouhani in a phone call with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, calling on the British government to seriously reconsider its stances regarding Soleimani’s assassination. According to the news service of the Iranian Presidency, President Hassan Rouhani held a phone conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday, during which Rouhani described Iran’s response to the United States and attacking its military base as legitimate defense and based on Article 51 of the United Nations’… Continue ->

Libya: Turkish Muslim Brotherhood Forces on Precipice of Ruin – Putin hands Erdogan hollow victory

Published 2020-01-09 18:15:26 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Headline-News, Libya, Mena, Russia, Turkey

By George Ades With a sense of urgency Erdogan wanted to speak to Putin about the situation in Libya. After delaying the meeting as much as was necessary, Putin did eventually grant Erdogan a meeting in which, the two leaders agreed to a ceasefire in Libya, something that Erdogan pressed hard for, as his Muslim Bothers in Tripoli are losing the earth from under their feet. However, the “ceasefire” will take effect as of midnight on Sunday January 12. By that time, the forces of the LNA are expected to have Tripoli under their control and there will be no one… Continue ->

TEHRAN, Jan. 09 (MNA) – Missile attacks at one of the most important US bases in the context of “Operation Shahid Soleimani ” were the start of a major operation that will continue throughout the region, said Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.   “Missile attacks on one of the most important US bases were the start of a major operation that would continue throughout the region”, he said, adding, “We didn’t seek to kill.

Iran Says NO! It Will Not Give Black Box of Crashed Plane to Boeing

Published 2020-01-09 17:51:13 by Joaquin Flores in Headline-News, Iran, Mena, United-States

Editor’s note – Ukraine and Canada? That’s always a highly suspect Banderist combination – almost always failing to mention the Israel connection uniting the two. We can’t say anything for certain, but the timing of this opens the door to create another MH-17 scenario – in fact it’s already beginning to bubble. More information war to confuse the people, and to personalize events as tragedies with bad-guys and all. Iran is right not to ‘hand over’ anything. No one needs another politicized investigation. Iran had no reason to create more problems for themselves, and in fact their retaliatory strikes on… Continue ->

FLORES: The Kerfuffle War – Trump’s Iran De-escalation Succeeds

Published 2020-01-09 17:32:19 by Joaquin Flores in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Mena, Opinions, United-States

Just like that, it was over. General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff called it ‘a kerfuffle’. A letter was sent to their Iraqi peers that the U.S was repositioning troops out of Iraq in accordance with legislation from Iraq ending the U.S military presence in the war-torn country, and suddenly then it was retracted by higher-ups. Running interference, Mark Esper backed Milley and said it was ‘an honest mistake’. It all went down within a day of the irrational assassination of Iran’s Soleimani. The immediate termination of Chewning and Sweeney, at the same time as the assassination of Soleimani… Continue ->

Israel Shamir: Trump’s bungling – Soleimani achieved through death what was not possible in life

Published 2020-01-09 17:17:31 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Mena, Opinions, United-States

By Israel Shamir – Trump was short of breath. He was breathing heavily, like Darth Vader on an occupied planet. His labored speech and strange look did not match the comforting words. But the meaning was clear: the world police received a ringing slap in the face, and he had one of two things left: to bite the bit and rush forward or smile pitifully and say: “It doesn’t hurt at all.” He chose the second option, which can only be rejoiced. The situation reminded us of the same (exactly the opposite!) incident in Syria, when Trump fired Tomahawks, and Bashar Assad… Continue ->

Published 2020-01-09 14:00:52 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Defense, Eurasia, Finance, Headline-News, India, Politics, Russia, United-States

WASHINGTON, D.C./NEW DELHI – The US State Department issued a not-so-thinly veiled warning to New Delhi, urging Indian officials to “reconsider” purchasing Russia’s S-400 missile defense systems or face the wrath of American sanctions. Asked about India’s pursuit of the S-400s during a press briefing on Wednesday, a senior State Department official said the country enjoyed no special protection from US sanctions, which Washington has also threatened to impose on Turkey over its own purchase of the missile platform, RT reported. “There is not a blanket waiver. Congress certainly never designed that or anticipated that, nor did the administration,” he… Continue ->

Published 2020-01-09 13:02:53 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Argentina, Bolivia, Color-Revolution, Finance, Headline-News, Latin-America, Mexico, Politics, United-States

BUENOS AIRES – Bolivia’s former President Evo Morales said on Wednesday the recently announced US assistance to the interim government of Jeanine Anez in 2020 proves Washington’s involvement in his ouster. “This is further evidence of the participation of the United States government in the coup. They want us to be their backyard again,” Morales tweeted, Anadolu news agency reported. “They want to appropriate lithium and other natural resources. They won’t be able to do that. We will come back and win!” he added. Morales’ remarks came after a White House memo on Monday noted “vital” assistance to Bolivia in… Continue ->

Published 2020-01-09 10:00:21 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Color-Revolution, Headline-News, Latin-America, Politics, United-States, Venezuela

CARACAS – Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro slammed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as a “failed clown” after the US official congratulated the country’s opposition figure Juan Guaido for claiming reelection as “parliament speaker”. In a state TV address on Tuesday, Maduro described Guaido’s swearing-in ceremony as “a show” and said the US President Donald Trump’s administration “is going to continue failing and failing and failing and Mike Pompeo will continue to stage the show, the clowning”, PressTV reported. “He ends up being a failed clown,” Maduro said. The US State Department had also earlier threatened Caracas that if Guaido… Continue ->

LONDON – The United Kingdom moved a step closer to leaving the European Union on Tuesday when Prime Minister Boris Johnson brought his Brexit deal back to Parliament, with MPs finally set to approve it after years of division and delay. Having scooped a parliamentary majority in the December 12 election, Johnson now faces little threat of defeat, deadlock or delay, Al-Jazeera reported. Opening the debate, Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay said the Withdrawal Agreement Bill “delivers on the overwhelming mandate given to us by the British people to get Brexit done by the end of January”. Members of Parliament have… Continue ->
