Published 2020-01-15 19:21:00 by Matthew Ehret in Anglo-5, Defense, Headline-News, Opinions, United-States

The world marches forward into the new year with a mix of hope and trepidation. The words of Martin Luther King who warned in his final days the universal truth that either we commit to “nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation” ring as true today as they did when they were spoken in 1968. In that speech, King stated prophetically that “this may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos and community”. Had Martin Luther King not been gunned down on the balcony of the Loraine Motel just at the very moment when he was leading a transformation of the civil… Continue ->

ISHCHENKO: Jews and the Holocaust as Ukraine’s Way of Life

Published 2020-01-15 13:00:20 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Germany, Headline-News, Opinions, Poland, Ukraine

By Rostislav Ishchenko – On Tuesday, January 14, Ukraine snapped back in response to Israel’s official accusation of Kiev glorifying those responsible for the Holocaust. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Kiev condemns all forms of intolerance and anti-Semitism. It seems that the foreign ministries of Israel and Ukraine are talking about different countries.In fact, they just live in different realities. In Israel, they will never understand that from the point of view of a “right” (nationally conscious) Ukrainian, killing Jews (not to mention some other forms of infringement) is not a crime, and Hitler came up with the Holocaust, the Ukrainians,… Continue ->

Why does Patriarch Bartholomew incite ethnic hatred?

Published 2020-01-15 12:30:32 by Guest Author in Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia, Ukraine

 By Kirill Aleksandrov – Union of Orthodox Journalists How Phanariots present a schism in Orthodoxy as the struggle of the Greeks and Russians.   One of the Phanar’s leading ideological narratives is an interpretation of the schism according to which the noble Greeks in an unequal struggle oppose the attempts of Russian barbarians to seize power in the Orthodox Church. The Phanar follows the line of well-known tactics: the best defence is attack. After all, it is the Greeks who do not hesitate to advocate their superiority in Orthodoxy. Let’s see how they do it and try to understand why they… Continue ->

Published 2020-01-15 12:02:24 by Denis Churilov in Eurasia, Headline-News, Iran, Iraq, Mena, Nato, Opinions, Russia, Ukraine

A hypothetical scenario – a Ukrainian far-right paramilitary leader, Dmytro Yarosh, travels to Estonia to take a part in a political forum organised by NATO. On his way to Tallinn airport, his convoy is hit by a Russian drone strike, killing him and a dozen of people who happened to be in that convoy. Later that day, Putin’s press-secretary, Dmitry Peskov, openly boasts about conducting such a brilliant military operation on a foreign soil, eliminating a former leader of the Right Sector (the organisation holds an “extremist/terrorist” status and is banned in Russian Federation). Imagine the international reaction. Imagine the… Continue ->

Time to Untangle a Very Deep Deception – the Downing of Flight 752

Published 2020-01-15 11:09:36 by Ronald Thomas West in Headline-News, Iran, Mena, Opinions

This is a follow-on to the excellent reporting by Russell Bentley at Fort Russ News, as well, this author’s initial piece at Fort Russ on the subject of Flight 752. In the downing of Flight 752 we’ll look at three kilogram verses fifteen kilogram warheads and a direct hit versus a ‘proximity’ detonation. [1], [2] A proximity detonation is preferred over a direct hit in surface to air missile defense against hostile aircraft. [3] The rationale behind designing anti-aircraft, surface to air missiles, for proximity detonations is simple. The initial rationale for proximity was a narrow miss in the early… Continue ->
