‘Euro is dead’: Le Pen eyes return of the Franc, preserving single currency for int’l trade

‘Euro is dead’: Le Pen eyes return of the Franc, preserving single currency for int’l trade

A week before the 2nd round of the French election, eurosceptic presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen has reminded her supporters that the ”euro is dead” and should be left only for international trade, while France should regain control and reintroduce the Franc.

“We need to control the currency, to adjust it to the economy because today the single currency is a burden,” Le pen said ahead of May 7 French presidential election, stressing that the “euro is dead.” 

“We will have a national currency like all other countries, and we will have a common currency together,” Le Pen said in in an interview with Le Parisien.

In her interview Sunday, she explained that euro should become the currency that will be used by “only large companies that trade internationally.”

On Saturday, Marine Le Pen struck a deal with a former rival Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, a fellow euro critic who garnered 4.7 percent of votes in the first round, who will serve as the prime minister if the 48-year-old right-wing populist gets elected.

“We will create a government of national unity,” said Le Pen, as she appeared with Dupont-Aignan on BFM television.

That same day, in an interview with newspaper Sud Ouest, Le Pen noted: “If everyone is agreed we could take a year or a year and a half to organize a coordinated return to national currencies.”

Yet the alliance statement by Dupont-Aignan's Stand up France' produced following the forming of the coalition noted that the return to Franc is not a pre-requisite.

“The transition from the single currency to the European common currency is not a pre-requisite of all economic policy, the timetable will adapt to the immediate priorities and challenges facing the French government,” the statement said.

Le Pen’s presidential race rival Emmanuel Macron, who is an advocate of deeper European integration, had also expressed scepticism about the euro in its current state before, although insisting on reforms to bolster the single currency union to make sure it does not fail.

“The truth is that we must collectively recognize that the euro is incomplete and cannot last without major reforms,” Macron said in January, citing a lack of trust between France and Germany that hampers the needed reforms. “The dysfunctioning of the euro is of good use to Germany… The euro is a weak Deutsche Mark… The status quo is synonymous, in 10 years’ time, with the dismantling of the euro.” 

Le Pen who will face off the big business’ hopeful Macron next Sunday in a second round vote, has repeatedly promised her electorate to leave the euro zone, hold a Brexit-style referendum, and levy taxes on foreign workers. She also vowed to lower the retirement age and increase some welfare benefits, while cutting income tax.

Despite the daring and radical proposals, Le Pen is still running behind her rival in the polls. In a poll by Odoxa released Friday, Macron’s support stands at 59 percent versus Le Pen’s 41 percent.ed Friday, Macron’s support stands at 59 percent versus Le Pen’s 41 percent.

Massive & impressive: Icebreaker festival kicks off in St. Petersburg (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Massive & impressive: Icebreaker festival kicks off in St. Petersburg (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
© / Ruptly
 
If you need something to boost your ‘tough Russians’ stereotype, an icebreaker festival has just kicked off in St. Petersburg. The mammoth Arctic-ice-cracking vessels are hosting the public, while smaller tugboats are set to waltz across the water.

This year, six vessels are taking part in the fourth annual Icebreaker Festival. Among them are the Mudyug, the Ivan Kruzenshtern, and the Saint-Petersburg, as well as the legendary Murmansk.

The ice-class tugboat Nevskaya Zastava and the Krassin icebreaker-museum, which has recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, have also joined the show.

“The festival is dedicated to the achievements and power of our country’s icebreaking industry, and the idea that St. Petersburg is the sea capital of Russia,” the city said in a statement. 

The festival gives visitors the chance to explore Russia’s Arctic fleet and climb the massive vessels on the Neva River for two days – April 29 and 30.

One of the festival’s traditional shows is the tugboat waltz, which will see the vessels spinning across the water to classical music and fountains of spray. Organizers promise this year’s dance to be more complicated and elegant than last time. 

Festival-goers have braved never-ending St. Petersburg rain to examine the interiors of the icebreakers – something you don’t get to do every day.

“Power and beauty even in such weather,” one excited person posted on Instagram. 

“Storm… Gusty winds. Soaked through and frozen, the photographer won’t give in,” said another, apparently referring to herself.

“This is powerful!” exclaimed one more spectator.

Sparks flew as the pilot of a small aircraft carrying three passengers was forced to make a daring landing on just two wheels at an airport in Florida on Friday.

The plane reportedly lost its third wheel as it was taking off from the runway in Belize. The pilot was notified immediately, but chose to continue the flight to the United States and brave the bumpy landing. 

The plane’s identification code ‘N4WG,’ which is clearly visible once the aircraft comes to a stop, has been corroborated with other footage of the incident taken by local media. 

The ID tags are also visible in this still image of the plane uploaded by a local firefighter to Instagram in the hours after the incident. 

“They said they were fine, shook up obviously but they said they were fine,” airport president Rick Piccolo said after the emergency landing, as cited by the Metro.

“They refused any medical attention,” Piccolo added, after noting that all four people on board had quickly run from the plane after landing in case it caught fire.

The emergency landing took place at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport in Florida, roughly 50 miles (80km) south of Tampa – the plane’s original destination. No one was injured.

The plane was forced to circle the airport for approximately an hour in order to reduce the amount of fuel on board and, thus, the potential for a fire breaking out during the rough landing, reports local WTSP News.

The emergency call came in shortly before 5pm on Friday, reports ABC Action News, citing the airport’s senior VP and COO, Mark Stuckey.

Will Trump Release The Missing JFK Files? (Video)

In October this year, President Trump will have to make a decision. Not a particularly important decision in the eyes of many, but one that many historians and skeptics are salivating over. Unless President Trump blocks it, the National Archives will release 3,600 never-before-seen files relating to the JFK assassination and possibly the full unsealing of another 35,000 assassination related documents.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at what information does files could potentially reveal. Speculation is that the documents will show exactly how much the intelligence agencies knew about Oswald prior to the assassination, as well as his mysterious trip to Mexico City. As of now, the intelligence agencies have given no indication that they plan to petition to block the release of the documents. But hey, it’s still early

Boulder County winter storm warning: 6-12 inches of snow possible

What forecasters are terming a classic spring snow event is shaping up to impact Boulder County and the rest of the Front Range, with a good chance for at least half a foot of snow falling before it tapers off mid-day Saturday.

National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina said 6 to 12 inches of snow could be delivered by the wintry blast. The weather service has issued a winter storm warning from 6 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Saturday.

A hard freeze for the area is possible Sunday morning.

The Commerce Department released estimates Friday showing that the economy is growing more slowly than it has in years.
For the first quarter of 2017, it grew a measly 0.7 percent, the worst growth since mid-2014.

Two months ago, they’d predicted a slight uptick to 2 percent growth.

Russian Navy to Receive Biggest and Most Unique Nuclear Submarine in the World

The nuclear submarine Project 09852 (Belgorod) will become the largest submarine in the Russian Navy, Russian newspaper Izvestia reported. Its size will outperform the heavy nuclear-powered Typhoon missile cruiser Project 941, currently the largest nuclear submarine according to the Guinness World Records.

Project 09852 is designed to carry out research missions. It will carry uninhabited deep-sea vehicles and bathyscaphes, as well as special scientific equipment. It will be engaged in studying the bottom of the Russian Arctic shelf, searching for minerals at great depths, and also laying underwater communications.

The submarine is being developed based on the unfinished Antey-class strike missile carrier Project 949A. These boats were built in the USSR as a response to the deployment of US aircraft carrier compounds in the global ocean. Twenty “Granit” supersonic anti-ship cruise missile launchers were aboard.

Russia is a world leader in ocean research. We are all familiar with the Keldysh, the "star" of James Cameron's "Titanic."



North Korea supports non-nuclear world and owes USA nothing

Can Donald Trump strike a nuclear blow on North Korea (the DPRK)? The analysis of the situation shows that the US can not ignore the positions of Moscow and Beijing that stand strongly against the US attack on the territory of the DPRK. At the same time, Moscow has distanced itself from the North Korean regime by saying that Russia does not accept Pyongyang's nuclear adventures. Nevertheless, Moscow has also warned Washington about the inadmissibility of taking a military action.

Beneath the waves: Has a sunken Russian ship been sabotaged?

Turkish divers could have found secret reconnaissance equipment and encryption codes on board The Liman after it mysteriously plummeted towards the sea bed in Turkish waters.

This is a valid concern. As I pointed out in "Rivero challenges the NSA", the most difficult part of breaking an enemy code is to figure out the methodology. The Allies in WW2 were not able to break the German Enigma until they captured an actual machine. Once they had that, building another machine to brute force the keys was relatively easy (not to disrespect the work of the people at Bletchley Park, of course).

If I were Russia, I would be deploying updated encryption systems with altered methodologies right now, and in an age of computer codes and software, it is much easier than it would have been for Germany to re-engineer the Enigma and ship out new hardware.

Carbon dioxide “pollutant” myth totally DEBUNKED in must-see science video

As part of the new Health Ranger Science effort at public education on crucial science issues of our time, I’ve just released this truly must-see video that totally debunks the false narrative of carbon dioxide as a “pollutant.”

As you’ll see explained in the video below, climate change alarmists use visual trickery and deceit to make gullible people falsely believe that CO2 is rising to unprecedented, alarming levels across our planet. In truth, CO2 is at nearly the lowest point ever recorded in the history of the planet.

In fact, using data from the NOAA and even the IPCC, it turns out that CO2 levels were as much as 15 times higher than 400 ppm in the past, and plants across the planet today are starving for CO2, the “molecule of life” for plant life across the planet (including forests, food crops and jungles).

Israel Announces Plan for 15,000 More Settlement Homes in East Jerusalem

The Israeli Housing Ministry today announced plans to build 25,000 homes across metro Jerusalem, and within this announcement were 15,000 new settlement homes within occupied East Jerusalem areas, a massive expansion of settlement in the area.

Israeli officials don’t present expansions in the East Jerusalem settlements as “settlement” expansion, however, as they insist the area, occupied since 1967, is part of the “eternal” capital of Israel, and will never be given back to the Palestinians at any rate.

The latest move sparked a lot of international criticism, with Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat declaring the move an attempt at “deliberate sabotage” of the peace process, and noting that all settlement construction in the occupied territories is illegal under international law.

I mentioned on this blog, years ago, that if the Palestinian leadership didn't get its act together, and present themselves as the unified voice of the Palestinian people, the land they would get for an independent Palestine wouldn't even be the size of Lichtenstein.

I hate having been right on this, but it is apparently the case.

And please remember; Zionist Israelis see their country as the original "Eretz Israel", stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates, which means a number of neighboring countries will have to give up some of their territory, to make that happen.

Babies starve as war grinds on in Mosul

This is on the heads of the American people who pay for the fighters and weapons on both sides with their taxes!

The babies cry with hunger but are so severely malnourished that doctors treating them at a hospital in Iraq would make their condition worse if they fed them enough to stop the pangs.

Many of the starving infants are from Mosul, where war between Islamic State militants and Iraqi forces is taking a heavy toll on several hundred thousand civilians trapped inside the city.

US Deploys Troops in NE Syria as ‘Buffer’ Between Kurds, Turkey

The US has deployed a number of special forces troops and armored vehicles along the border between Kurdish-held northeast Syria and Turkey, with most of the troops sent to the area around Darbasiya, which was the site of heavy Turkish attacks earlier this week.

Officially, US commanders say the troops are there “monitoring the situation,” though Syrian Kurds say that in practice the US deployment is an attempt to establish a “buffer” to try to limit fighting between the two sides,, which has been raging since Turkey’s airstrikes were carried out.

From Turkey’s perspective, there are two trains of thought on their recent push to attack the Kurdish YPG, who they consider “terrorists.” On the one hand, there seems to be some hope that if they can displace the Kurds enough during the buildup to the invasion of the ISIS capital of Raqqa, the US might agree to change it to a joint US-Turkey operation.

I think we will continue to see more US troops in Syria, as regime change is definitely back on the table here, in the thinking of the American deep state.

But what happens when US troops run into direct confrontation with the Russian ground troops, which are being deployed there very soon?!?

How Bio-Weapons Led To Torture ... And North Korean Nukes

In Why North Korea Needs Nukes - And How To End That we pointed to the utter destruction the U.S. and its allies waged in the war on Korea on all parts of the country. That North Korea seeks "weapons of mass destruction" is quite understandable when one takes into account the hundreds of thousands tons of napalm used against it. But even Napalm and the criminal destruction of North Korean dams were not the worst depravation the U.S. applied. Biological warfare agents, primarily anthrax, were dropped over North Korea and China and killed civilians. The U.S./UN command denied such use and covered it up. One consequence of that cover up was the development of torture methods in the U.S. SERE pilot training programs and their later proliferation into criminal abuses in Guantanamo, Abu Graibh and elsewhere.

Can Cannabis Prevent and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is a serious condition usually caused by an external blow to the head that can cause severe and often chronic symptoms. These symptoms can be cognitive, behavioral, movement related, speech and visual impairing, mood altering, involve painful headaches, and even cause gastrointestinal issues.

In a three-year retrospective review of 446 separate cases of similarly injured patients, researchers found traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who had a history of cannabis consumption possessed increased survival rates compared to non-consumers (97.6 percent survived surgery, versus 88.5% of those who didn’t consume cannabis).

"Our data suggest an important link between the presence of a positive THC screen and improved survival after TBI," the researchers concluded. "With continued research, more information will be uncovered regarding the therapeutic potential of THC, and further therapeutic interventions may be established."

China draws red line for North Korea issue: war is not allowed

China has drawn a red line for the U.S., North Korea, and South Korea, that war on the Korean Peninsula is not allowed and that all consequences would be borne by the relevant countries should war break out.

China warns of necessary actions as US says THAAD to be operational in coming days

China expressed its grave concern after parts of the THAAD system were moved to the deployment site in South Korea, which the U.S. claims is purely defensive. China Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that the deployment of THAAD breaks the strategic balance in the region and ratchets up the tension on the Korean Peninsula.

China strongly urged the U.S. and South Korea to cancel the deployment and withdraw the equipment, and sent a strong warning that China will take necessary actions to safeguard its own interests.

Trump tough on South Korea: Threatens to terminate free trade deal, wants payment for THAAD missile defense system

President Donald Trump said that he will either renegotiate or terminate a "horrible" trade deal with South Korea, Reuters reported late Thursday.

Responses to Trump's comments soon arose, with an official from South Korea's automakers association telling Reuters that the group is now concerned about "the uncertainty" of the free trade agreement.

Shares in Hyundai Motor fell as much as 2.4 percent following Trump's comments. South Korea's won turned weaker on the comments.

Experts: North Korean nukes can defeat even the world's most advanced missile defense system

The US has successfully tested THAAD 12 times, but never used it in actual combat, which can play out much differently than controlled tests.

Another scientist, David Wright, co-director of the Union of Concerned Scientists' Global Security Program, said that a salvo of North Korean short-range missiles could overwhelm THAAD.

What is Real Conservatism, and why is it so important?

Up to two fifths of Americans describe themselves as Conservatives, and in England that number is roughly the same. The beliefs and principles that relate both the US and UK Conservatives are generally similar, yet any individual definition of what Conservatism means to each person who identifies as such would probably differ greatly. And of course, those who are not Conservative have a very different view as to what principles (if any) underlie its present incarnation.

BREAKING NEWS: North Korea carries out a non-nuclear missile test says Pentagon - but it fails AGAIN

A US official said the missile blew up over land before it ever reached its target of the the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea. It landed around 35 miles kilometers from Pukchang airfield, CNN reports.

A US government source told Reuters the test-fire had failed.

The missile, thought to be a mid-range KN-17 ballistic missile, was fired from a location in the South Pyeongan province in the early hours of Saturday morning local time, according to South Korea's military chiefs of staff said, the BBC reports.

So far, there has been no comment on the failed test-fire from North Korea.

Not that long ago Dershowitz saw me as Israel’s most dangerous enemy. He even, at one stage, complained about my "obscure" sax playing.

He did it all in vain. Dershowitz has been bitterly defeated on each and every battle he picked against me. Not a single scholar surrendered to his pressure, not even one withdrew his or her endorsement of my work. They practically just laughed to his face.

REPORTS: US TROOPS DEPLOY ALONG SYRIA-TURKISH BORDER

Tags:

U.S. armored vehicles are deploying in areas in northern Syria along the tense border with Turkey, a few days after a Turkish airstrike that killed 20 U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters, a Syrian war monitor and Kurdish activists said Friday.

Footage posted by Syrian activists online showed a convoy of U.S. armored vehicles driving on a rural road in the village of Darbasiyah, a few hundred meters from the Turkish border. Clashes in the area were reported between Turkish and Kurdish forces Wednesday a day after the Turkish airstrike which also destroyed a Kurdish command headquarters.

When 'Sunshine' Ruled on the Korean Peninsula

Before South Korea’s conservative presidents severed ties with North Korea from 2008, their liberal predecessors Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun promoted peaceful engagement and rapprochement, an approach called the “sunshine policy.”

The name stemmed from an ancient Greek fable where the wind and the sun competed to remove a man’s cloak. No matter how strongly the wind blew, the man only wrapped his cloak more tightly to keep warm. But when the sun shone, the warmth made him take his cloak off. The wind symbolized unsuccessful coercive policies toward North Korea and the sun stood for an approach able to persuade North Korea to take off its anachronistic and uncomfortable cloak, changing at last.

Russia says strike on North Korea ‘completely unacceptable’

Moscow tells UN Security Council meeting that any military action to address nuclear proliferation by Pyongyang could have catastrophic consequences.

Russia on Friday warned at the United Nations that military options to address the threat from North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic programs were “completely unacceptable” and would have “catastrophic consequences.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the Security Council that China’s proposals to restart talks with North Korea should be seriously examined and that sanctions alone would not work.

North Korea “is conducting itself in an inappropriate way,” Gatilov told the council. “At the same time, options of using force are completely unacceptable and could lead to catastrophic consequences.”

As reported by reuters this morning:

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned on Friday that failure to curb North Korea's nuclear and missile abilities could lead to 'catastrophic consequences,' while China and Russia cautioned Washington against threatening military force to solve the problem. While Washington has pressed Beijing to rein in its ally Pyongyang, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the U.N. Security Council that "the key to solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula does not lie in the hands of the Chinese side." Tillerson urged the 15-member body to act before North Korea does and called on states to sever diplomatic and financial ties with Pyongyang. He said that because China accounted for 90 percent of North Korean trade, its role was particularly important. "Failing to act now on the most pressing security issue in the world may bring catastrophic consequences," Tillerson said in his first remarks to the council as secretary of state. The United States was not pushing for regime change and preferred a negotiated solution, but Pyongyang, for its own sake, should dismantle its nuclear and missile programs, he said. "The threat of a nuclear attack on Seoul, or Tokyo, is real, and it's only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the U.S. mainland," Tillerson said. While Tillerson repeated the Trump administration's position that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its nuclear and missile development, Yi said military threats would not help.

The question is, with the South Korean elections just a little over a week away, and one of the front-runners being an avowed advocate of the "Sunshine Policy", which promotes engagement with North Korea, just how long will the US give the UN Security Council to vote for these sanctions they are demanding, with a sure and certain knowledge that Russia and China will either abstain, or vote no?!?

The Security Council process can be glacial.

Trump's demand Seoul pay for THAAD will test ties as Moon presidency looms

Tags:

The remarks come as South Korea heads into a presidential election that will likely elect liberal front-runner Moon Jae-in, who has said the next administration in Seoul should have the final say on the deployment of THAAD. Moon's campaign office said the deployment of THAAD should be immediately suspended until then.

"This almost certainly will become another self-inflicted wound for the alliance and for U.S. foreign policy," said Daniel Pinkston, a Troy University professor and expert on North and South Korea based in Seoul.

Moon, who said in a book published in January that South Korea should learn to "say no to Americans", is leading polls by a wide margin ahead of South Korea's May 9 election to replace impeached former President Park Geun-hye, whose government agreed with Washington last year to deploy THAAD.

Sec. Tillerson to UN Security Council: ‘Act Before North Korea Does’

Tags:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Friday for tougher sanctions — aimed mainly at China and other countries that continue to trade with North Korea — as a way to pressure Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear program.

Tillerson, who chaired a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council, said the U.S. prefers a diplomatic solution. However, he stressed the U.S. reserves the option of military action to counteract North Korean aggression if necessary.

 

The body language tells a lot. Tillerson isn't doing any better here than he was with the meeting with the Senators!

 

Tillerson made two statements I wish to respond to.

Tillerson claimed that North Korea is pushing the world towards conflict. How many nations as the United States attacked in the last 16 years? Same question for North Korea.

2. Tillerson claims North Korea doe snot need nuclear weapons. Again, how many nations as the United States attacked in the last 16 years? How many of them had nuclear weapons with which to deter attack?

Fox News Poll: 53 percent favor military action to stop North Korea nukes program

It will take military force to stop North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, a majority of voters believe -- and they tend to favor the U.S. taking that action.

That’s according to the latest national Fox News Poll of registered voters.

Fifty-one percent say that U.S. military action will be required to keep the rogue nation from continuing its nuclear weapons program, while 36 percent think diplomacy alone can stop it.

By a 53-39 percent margin, voters favor the U.S. using military force to keep North Korea from making further advancements on nukes.

9/11 Destroyed America Conspiracy Buzz — Paul Craig Roberts

In America, telling the truth has become more dangerous than ever … even deadly to one’s career. “It comes at a high cost that hardly any can afford.” Why have we allowed a tiny handful of neoconservatives to destroy multiple Middle Eastern countries, along with whatever civil liberties we once had in America? Neoconservatives are a tiny number of people. No more than a dozen are of any consequence. Yet they have used America to murder millions. And now they are fomenting war with Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. The world would never survive such a war. Are Americans so insouciant that they will stand aside while a dozen neoconservatives destroy the world?

Mounting Incitements to War With Russia

Nation contributing editor Stephen F. Cohen and John Batchelor continue their weekly discussions of the new US-Russian Cold War. (Previous installments, now in their fourth year, are at TheNation.com). This installment expands upon last week’s, which focused on several highly questionable Washington narratives that imply the necessity of war with Russia. When later asked which of these allegations was the most dangerous, Cohen responds, in this installment, that their number is increasing and with them the risk of war. He itemizes the Cold War narratives, or allegations, now propounded by the US political-media establishment:

The "blame Russia for everything not going right for American geopolitics" is both disingenuous in the extreme, and completely, utterly wrong.

But just because something is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do, unfortunately, is utterly no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

And a war with Russia right now would be idiotically suicidal for the American government to do, and I say this as someone who cares very much about the future of her country.

The reasons are painfully obvious; right now, the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

And secondly, Americans have become very war-weary, and war-skeptical, in evaluating the horrific messes the US military has left in places like Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; and Libya.

And that fact that Americans understand, incontrovertibly, that they were lied to in order to start the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, means that they can never, ever trust anything agents of the US government say ever again.

So to all those who seem to have gone foaming-at-the-mouth, barking-dog mad, in terms of both government officials and their presstitutes, attempting to "sell" your Russophobia, a word, please; you have utterly flushed your credibility with your lies, and have therefore become completely irrelevant in terms of moving the American geopolitical process forward.

Residents: MOAB Was More of a Dud

The April 13 strike by US forces in eastern Afghanistan saw the first deployment of the MOAB, the Mother of All Bombs, in a combat situation, dropped against ISIS forces in tunnels.

The reality, not so much. Locals report that the MOAB did way less damage than you’d think, noting that there were green trees still standing 100 meters from the center of the blast, with no sign of damage, and that the tunnels the ISIS fighters were within appear all but untouched.

Bulgarian Weapons Sent to Terrorists in Syria Through Saudi Arabia

The Bulgarian newspaper “Trud” published a report on April 21, 2017 about an investigation into the supply of Bulgarian weapons to the terrorists in Syria, shipped through Saudi Arabia.

In early April, ship so called “Marianne Danica” arrived the biggest port of Saudi Arabia in Jeddah under the flag of Denmark, after it left the port of Burgas on March 28th, loaded with tons of weapons.

According to the newspaper, the ship was listed as transporting dangerous cargo – “Hazard A” (Major), which refers to the transport of explosives and weapons. After 8 hours dangerous cargo is unloaded at the port of Jeddah and the ship sails back to Bourgas. The weapons were not intended for Saudi Arabia, as Saudi army are only equipped almost exclusively with US and UK weaponry.

FORMERLY IMPRISONED JOURNALIST BARRETT BROWN TAKEN BACK INTO CUSTODY BEFORE PBS INTERVIEW

AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST Barrett Brown was re-arrested and taken into custody Thursday, the day before he was scheduled to be interviewed for a PBS documentary.

Brown quickly became a symbol of the attack on press freedom after he was arrested in 2012 for reporting he did on the hacked emails of intelligence-contracting firms. Brown wrote about hacked emails that showed the firm Stratfor spying on activists on behalf of corporations. Brown also helped uncover a proposal by intelligence contractors to hack and smear WikiLeaks defenders and progressive activists.

Faced with the possibility of 100 years in prison, Brown pleaded guilty in 2014 to two charges related to obstruction of justice and threatening an FBI agent, and was sentenced to five years and 3 months. In 2016, Brown won a National Magazine Award for his scathing and often hilarious columns in The Intercept, which focused on his life in prison. He was released in November.

This is an absolute moral outrage, and I hope that the intercept keeps the unblinking eye of the net on this case until Brown is released.

IF the Federal BOP actually HAS a policy on interviews, post-incarceration, I was certainly unable to find it on the web; and I am not precisely a slouch at research.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsTillerson: US Won’t Attack North Korea So Long as Threat ‘Manageable’

After weeks of speculation that a US attack on North Korea could be imminent, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who played a substantial role in the rhetoric that fueled that belief, sought to play down the idea of an immediate attack, saying that the US is willing to be patient and will not strike so long as the threat is considered “manageable.”

This is in stark contrast to official statements in the past month, with Tillerson having declared diplomacy to have failed, and Vice President Mike Pence having declared the era of patience “over” weeks ago. The US continues to add warships, and anti-missile systems to the theater of operations too, with the Pentagon having just warned Congress of the potential for large-scale consequences for a new Korean War.

Secretary of State Tillerson, a word, please: what does "manageable" even mean in the context of North Korea?!?

I don't think that Tillerson's comments, coupled with the statements of Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris on this issue, are any kind of "deliberate ambiguity"; I think this sharp, and painfully clear, difference of opinion on the path forward, demonstrates a very schizophrenic split in the American Deep State as to how to go about getting North Korea to do what the US government wants it do do.

And that is a very dangerous state of affairs for American foreign policy toward North Korea.

Sanctions War: Russia Loses $50Bln, West Loses $100Bln

Western countries have lost over $100 billion over three years from the sanctions applied against Russia over the Ukrainian crisis, compared with up to $55 billion lost by Russia, UN Special Rapporteur on the negative impact of the unilateral coercive measures Idriss Jazairy said Friday.

"The sanctioning countries lose more income from sanctions than the targeted country over $100 against $50-$55 billion. The loss of income of Russia from the sanctions, a very rough rule of thumb to apply would be to say that the GDP of Russia has lost about 1 percent as a result of sanctions. Since the GDP of Russia is about $1.7 trillion, the GDP loss of income over three years is about between $50-$55 billion," Jazairy said during a press conference.

Report: Deaths of Afghan Women up 54% Over Previous Year

The latest UN report on civilian deaths in Afghanistan showed a dramatic 54% increase in the number of women killed in the first quarter of 2017 over the same period in the previous year, alongside a 17% rise in the number of children killed. The deaths cover “conflict-related” fatalities.

Women and children are both are growing amount of the overall casualties of the Afghan War, and the UN expressed particular concern about the lack of effort to ensure protection for civilians among the various combatants, given that “fighting season” is fast approaching.

With little infrastructure,, Afghanistan’s war tends to quiet down somewhat during the winter, with a lot of areas of the country impassable. This tends to lead to a “spring offensive” which marks the official start of fighting season after the thaw, with casualties rising significantly nationwide.

The spring battles will most likely see an uptick in the deaths of women and children.

IF the NATO high command and the US government and military had a brain cell to rub together between them, they would bring their troops out of that accursed country as quickly as safely possible, then negotiate with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the oil pipeline and mineral rights.

Of course, THAT...would be logical.

‘Lacklustre Campaign’ Sees Macron Falling in Polls

Polls in the French presidential race are tightening as Emmanuel Macron’s campaign gets off to a lacklustre start and more voters come out in support of Marine Le Pen.
According to a new poll from Opinionway-Orpi released Thursday, the gap is narrowing between pro-globalist presidential candidate Macron and rival Le Pen, with Macron losing two percentage points in just two days, L’Express reports.

Macron dropped below 60 per cent to 59 per cent, with Le Pen at 41 per cent. The survey was carried out multiple times since February and Le Pen has only crossed the symbolic 40 per cent mark twice.

In the first polling after they had made it through to the second round, the En Marche! candidate had polled at 65 per cent of voting intentions, compared with 35 per cent for Le Pen.

The Rise of the Generals

Has President Donald Trump outsourced foreign policy to the generals?

So it would seem. Candidate Trump held out his hand to Vladimir Putin. He rejected further U.S. intervention in Syria other than to smash ISIS.

He spoke of getting out and staying out of the misbegotten Middle East wars into which Presidents Bush II and Obama had plunged the country.

President Trump’s seeming renunciation of an anti-interventionist foreign policy is the great surprise of the first 100 days, and the most ominous. For any new war could vitiate the Trump mandate and consume his presidency.
