The Russian Air Forces began active strikes in Syria against positions of ISIS and Al Qaeda allies. All this happened right after president Putin spoke at the United Nations General Assembly on Monday Sept 28th. Russia has been preparing for this in the last weeks and it was a matter of time to take an active role in the conflict. The actions fully comply with international law.
Russia will not participate in ground operations. They will support the existing Syrian army of president Assad plus anyone who takes part in a larger anti-terrorist coalitions (Kurds, Iraq, Iran, Hezbollah units).
Does NATO really exist? Seriously.
As the world gets closer to a new major war this question is worth asking.
Now, it may sound like a strange question… What do you mean with “does NATO exists?”, everyone knows it exists? It’s an official organisation. It does exist, right?
Well, yes, on paper. It exists as a structure, rather complicated structure but still, it’s there.
The world leaders are debating these days about whether they have to join forces against this “new” enormous terrorist threat called ISIS that apparently “has appeared from nowhere”. The United States have already started to bomb some ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria but now the conversations are about bigger coalition against this new big enemy.
The uninformed public is watching the news, sees how radical islamists execute people and the officials, well, they take advantage of all this.
Something is rotten in the state of Ukraine. There are a lot of questions about the Malaysian jet that are pretty inconvenient both for the Kiev junta and for USA that support it. Despite the whole propaganda confusion, it is not hard to understand the discrepancy between USA’s accusations against Russia and the facts that were alleged.
It’s a total mess. That’s the so called Ukrainian crisis. The war that is going on there is a road to catastrophe – it’s already local, it might turn into global.
We’ve covered the Kiev protests earlier this year, our prediction that the country would divide turned out to be right. We later explained the situation in Crimea and if you follow us on twitter you know that we comment on the events every day. It’s not because Ukraine is hot news but because it’s the most important battlefield in the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
With the practical start of the new cold war, the possibilities of an actual hot war are rising. Wars around the world have never stopped but because the territories of the Western countries have been relatively peaceful grounds for the last 60-70 years people there don’t realize that it’s a serious threat.
War is not a joke, especially when we talk about the potential start of World War III with the biggest nuclear powers facing each other.
And yet, the escalation of pro-war talks among ordinary people is just astonishing. Those morons probably don’t realize that war is not a video game. It’s not an entertainment event that you can be part of and it’s not a sports competition.
Kiev is under control of the criminal parliament minority supported by neo-nazis and extreme nationalists. The Crimea region separated from Ukraine. The other regions inhabited by Russian speakers (the actual majority of Ukraine’s population) are ready to do the same as long as the nazi junta is posing a threat to them. Russian public figures and politicians are openly insisting on starting an intervention in Ukraine. The presence of Russian troops in Crimea and the massive military drills are a demonstration of Putin’s decisiveness to defend Russian geopolitical positions and economic interests. Western liberal propaganda is trying to demonize Russia but it is all bluff media puffery. Here is an explanation why.
Natural disasters and war situations do not exist only in the movies. We see such crisis happening all the time somewhere in the world and no one is immune. Unfortunately war becomes more and more expected in some countries and if we add the escalating riots in many other places along with the civil war possibilities you should realize that you have to be ready for such events. Not to mention the natural disasters that happen all around the globe – hurricanes, extreme colds, floods, earthquakes, etc. These are all extreme situations and most people don’t have a basic preparation and survival skills.
The situation in Syria is deteriorating and it is very likely for the country to become the next Iraq or Afghanistan, infected with the ”democracy” virus through bombardment squadrons. We are aware of the deadliness of the virus for these two countries. The willingness of USA to strike and the the decisiveness of China and Russia to confront are enough illustrative facts to show that the whole point is not peacemaking at all.
There are some myths about the Victory Day (May 9) Worth Busting.
Every year the celebrations of the victory over Nazism are accompanied by some senseless statements that deny the importance of the Soviet Union for the defeat of the Third Reich. To help you remove the bitter bananas from the story, we translated an extract from an interview of the famous Russian political expert Anatoly Wasserman:
