The Golden Trap of Chess Master Vladimir Putin

Accusations of the West towards Putin traditionally are based on the fact that he worked in the KGB. And therefore he is a cruel and immoral person. Putin is blamed for everything. But nobody ever accused Putin of lack of intelligence.

Any accusations against this man only emphasize his ability for quick analytical thinking and making clear and balanced political and economic decisions.

Often Western media compares this ability with the ability of a grandmaster, conducting a public chess simul. Recent developments in US economy and the West in general allow us to conclude that in this part of the assessment of Putin’s personality Western media is absolutely right.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President George H. W. Bush was head of the CIA, BUt nobody in the western media suggested that made Bush an evil person!

Oooooh, BAD Russians. They are opposed to FRACKING! The horror. The HORROR!!!

(Ahem)

From now on, figure that anything opposing corporate interests in American will be blamed on the Russians.

Kremlin confirms Putin-Poroshenko phone conversation, denies alleged threats

Earlier, media claimed Putin and Poroshenko had allegedly touched upon the theme of Ukraine’s relations with NATO. Some argued that the Russian president uttered threats against his Ukrainian counterpart. A short while later Ukraine dismissed these rumours. The chief of the Ukrainian presidential department of information, Irina Frits, said the media rumours of any threats were not true.

Putin may be throwing Poroshenko a lifeline.

Malaysia excluded from MH17 probe – for 'not pointing fingers at Russia'?

The country that owned the shot down MH17 jet, which was carrying a number of Malaysian citizens and was flown by a Malaysian crew, has been excluded from the criminal investigation due to its political neutrality, the nation's media reported.

Malaysia has been left out of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), which has been tasked with learning more about the details of the tragedy which took place over Ukraine in July. This is despite the Dutch prime minister stating the importance of Malaysia's cooperation during a visit to the country this month. The JIT includes the Netherlands, Belgium, Ukraine, and Australia.

Activists advocate criminal charges for child porn possession

Members of Russia’s Public Chamber have prepared several proposals on how to protect women and children from exploitation. These include criminal prosecution for possession of child pornography.

The initiatives are included in the group’s annual report on the state of civil society. The authors note that at present Russia lacks a unified court procedure on all cases involving pornography. In particular, terms like ‘child porn’ are used in legal documents without being defined, and lawmakers’ repeated efforts to do so have yielded no results.

US pressing Chinese and Arab banks to sanction Russia – head of VTB bank

The US is putting pressure on Chinese and Arab banks, forbidding them to work with Russian sanctioned companies, says Andrey Kostin, head of Russia's second biggest lender VTB.

"We have information on Arab countries, China, and others that US officials come, gather the heads of banks and say: "We will punish everyone who is under Russian sanctions," said Kostin, after a meeting organized by the Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce in Germany.

"We need to take this into account. Nobody wants to become BNP Paribas”, he said, meaning the large French bank that was fined $9 billion for violating US sanctions against Cuba, Iran and Sudan.

However, Kostin believes Chinese credit organizations will provide financing for projects that interest them.

Ukrainian General reveals the [CIA] control of Ukraine

Webmaster's Commentary:

As a side note, I met some people from Ukraine on my vacation and they said exactly the same thing; that the US was behind the coup last January.

Hacked US Documents Said To Reveal Extent Of Undisclosed US "Lethal Aid" For Ukraine Army

It has been half a year since it was first revealed that the US has been sending non-lethal aid to the Ukraine: recall that it was in early June when Obama announced he had approved $5 million in body armor, night vision goggles and additional communications equipment for the Ukrainian military.

Since then the topic of whether or not to arm the Ukraine army in its civil war against the separatist eastern region has been a hot topic as recently as today, when VOA reported that "U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has condemned what he calls Russia’s “aggression” in Ukraine, but stopped short of saying the United States will provide Ukraine with lethal aid... the White House nominee to fill the number two position at the State Department has said the United States should consider giving Ukraine lethal military equipment."

The Mistral Affair: Breach of Contract or Hostile Act?

On November 18th 2014 Sputnik news reported that the French government has denied access to the Russian training crew for the Mistral ship Vladivostok docked at St. Nazaire. The French Ministry of Defence denied knowledge of the action but their denial is in line with the French President’s continual habit of saying one thing and meaning another. The alarming question now has to be asked whether this is just a commercial breach of contract or a hostile act, because the French government has not just “failed” to deliver the first of the two Mistral ships contracted and paid for as the press reports state, it has refused to deliver them and will not unless certain conditions are met, political conditions, which have strategic importance for Russia and conditions that can never be met unless Russia surrenders its strategic position and its defence of the Ukrainians of the Donbass.

US Should Consider Lethal Aid to Ukraine, Says Obama Nominee

U.S. President Barack Obama's nominee to fill the number two post at the State Department says the White House should consider providing Ukraine with lethal, defensive military equipment.

Testifying Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tony Blinken said that arming Ukraine's military could force Russia to rethink its role in the conflict gripping eastern Ukraine.

Both houses of Congress have voiced support for such aid, but the Obama administration has so far stopped short of providing lethal equipment.

The Kyiv government and a host of Western nations have accused Moscow of providing direct aid, including armor and other military hardware, to separatists. NATO also has accused Moscow - which annexed Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula in March - of sending more tanks and troops into eastern Ukraine in the past two weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Tony Blinken: it is obvious that either you completely do not understand the true narrative of what happened when Viktor Yushchenko was removed from power, in a Western, EU, ECB putsch which put Western-centric tycoon Poroshenko in control, or chosing to completely ignore it.

After the sacking of Ukraine's duly elected leadership, Crimea, which had been traditionally a part of Russia until it was annexed by Kruschev in the 50's, petitioned to become a part of the Russian Federation. The referendum, to achieve that end, was conducted under the presence of international observers, and considered to be free and fair.

Let us be clear here: Russia did not annex Crimea: Crimea requested to become a part of the Russian Federation.

The song lyrics from Sam Cooke's "Wonderful World", where he sings the line "don't know much about history" are cute, in the context of song: but sir, it worries me greatly your historical revisionism here could have some horrific implications for the future of this both this country and this planet.

Yes, I understand that the US government and Congress are slouching toward a military confrontation against Russia on a number of fronts; with Syria; with Iran, and with the Ukraine.

With these weapons, Prooshenko will, most probably, begin ordering heavy attacks in the Eastern Ukraine provinces which have broken away, and it will only be a matter of time before Russia feels it must act.

I would like to politely point out that at this time in its history, the US military does not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome against Russia in a military confrontation. And that, sir is what makes the miltary scenario so scarily dangerous.

And Mr. President: would it be humanly possible, please, to nominate someone for this position who is infinitely less eager to ultimately lead us on a path to war with Russia?!?

This Is What Is Really Taking Place Behind The Scenes Of The Second US-Russian Cold War

It appears John Kerry is at it again. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the US Secretary of State called on him to "pay no mind" to a statement by President Obama, in which Russia was included to a list of top global threats. Seeking Russia's cooperation in Iran and on the Korean Peninsula, Kerry told Lavrov to "forget about" what Obama said. As US foreign policy credibility dissolves, we leave it to Lavrov to conclude, "it is flippant," he jabs, "it’s not appropriate for a powerful country to have such a consumer attitude to its partners - where you’re needed, help us; where you’re not, obey us."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is the result of a lack of a coherent foreign policy. The White House is purely reactive at this point, driven by events and lured on by goals which are often contradictory to each other. There is no real leadership in DC. It's just a town of opportunists carving out the largest slice possible for themselves and their backers.

Russia invades Ukraine. Again. And again. And yet again … using Saddam’s WMD

Thirty miles inside Ukraine territory and not a single satellite photo, not a camera anywhere around, not even a one-minute video to show for it. “Ms. Psaki apparently [sic] was referring to videos of captured Russian soldiers, distributed by the Ukrainian government.” The Times apparently forgot to inform its readers where they could see these videos.

“The Russian aim, one Western official said, may possibly be to seize an outlet to the sea in the event that Russia tries to establish a separatist enclave in eastern Ukraine.”

This of course hasn’t taken place. So what happened to all these Russian soldiers 30 miles inside Ukraine? What happened to all the armored vehicles, weapons, and equipment?

Poroshenko Challenged to Duel by East Ukrainian Rebel Leader

The head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic has challenged Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to a duel in an open letter suggesting various means of resolving the country's ongoing crisis, the TASS news agency reported Wednesday.

"Let's follow the example of the ancient Slavic leaders and great Cossack chieftains and come together for a duel. Whoever wins will dictate their terms to the opposing side. Why ignite mutual hatred while destroying people, the economy, cities? These are wounds that both you and we will have to treat for decades to come! Isn't it better to end all disagreements by means of an honest duel?" Igor Plotinsky was cited as saying.

CLAIMED MH17 SHOOTDOWN SATELLITE IMAGE IS A FAKE!

It shows exactly what people who doubt the offocial story expect to see, which is the first signal to be cautious. A medium size 3K resolution of this image is HERE.

This image is a fake, and a very good one.

I suspect someone tried to plant this picture to discredit first Russia and second the independent media, and alarmingly, a lot of independent media sites are falling for this, hook, line, and sinker!

FLASHBACK - The Latest Heist: US Quietly Snatches the Ukraine’s Gold Reserves

According to reports out of Kiev (see links below), the US has quietly transfers 33 tons of Ukrainian gold out of the country and back to vaults in the US. Presumably, this sovereign wealth transfer would be counted as partial “collateral” for a fresh round of IMF, US FED, and ECB paper debt that is currently being organised for dumping into the Ukraine’s economic black hole.

Multiple inquiries to US Federal Reserve administrators into the location of the Ukraine’s gold have been met with the proverbial ‘pass the buck’, making tracking and tracking the final resting place of these 33 tonnes very difficult indeed – but one can expect that the NY Fed is probably the institution who has masterminded this financial heist.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ukraine announced this week that they are almost out of gold. Where did it go? This story from last March points the finger at the US!

Here's What Really Happened at the G20 in Australia

So what did in fact happen at the G20 summit?

The short answer is that it was a shriller rerun of the ASEM summit in Milan.

The same line up of European leaders joined this time by the Australians and the Canadians (Obama and Putin barely met) tried once again to bully Putin into doing what they wanted in the Ukraine, believing on this occasion that the fall in oil prices and in the rouble would make him more amenable.

In order to drive the point home a media blitz of quite extraordinary intensity was also orchestrated.

To their collective bafflement and anger, Putin refused to move an inch.

Kiev Effectively Cedes East Ukraine to Separatists, Withdraws Hospital, School Funding, Bank Card Operations

Last week, the government in Ukraine cut off pensions benefits to residents of rebel-held areas until such time as these areas return to Ukrainian control.

Yesterday, in yet another scorched-earth policy move, president Petro Poroshenko announced Ukraine Rebel Areas to Lose State Services.

Ukraine's president has ordered the withdrawal of all state services, including funding for hospitals and schools, from rebel-held areas.

Mr Poroshenko's ruling says all state companies and institutions should end their work in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions within a week.

It also says Ukraine's central bank is to close down all banking services - including card operations - in some areas within a month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama's arrogance in stating "You don't invade other countries and finance proxies and support them in ways that break up a country" is stunning when you recall that it was the US-backed Coup in Kiev last January that ignited the Ukraine crisis, not to mention the US invading some 17 nations over the last 11 years, including the invasion of Iraq, sold with the lie of Saddam's nuclear weapons.

What frightened the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black Sea?

As the Russian jet approached the US vessel, the electronic device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer. In other words, the all-powerful Aegis system, now hooked up - or about to be - with the defense systems installed on NATO’s most modern ships was shut down, as turning off the TV set with the remote control.

The Russian Su-24 then simulated a missile attack against the USS Donald Cook, which was left literally deaf and blind. As if carrying out a training exercise, the Russian aircraft - unarmed - repeated the same maneuver 12 times before flying away.

What really happened in Beijing: Putin, Obama, Xi — and the back story the media won’t tell you

Courtis had a curious exchange with Putin during some of the economic forum sessions in Beijing. He asked if Russia would provide North Korea security guarantees if it agreed to renounce nuclear weapons.

Putin replied in part: “Your question is too clever. This is not the moment yet even to raise that question, let alone answer it. Often, the problem in the world is not that small countries, who feel they are under siege, are unwilling to change. Rather, it is that the bigger countries are all piling on like bullies in the school yard – and they don’t know when to stop.”

I hope Kerry and Obama were listening at that moment. As Courtis heard it, “I think Putin was signaling to the West that there will be no more help from Russia with sanctions on North Korea, or anywhere else. One could also read Iran, Syria, Venezuela, etc., into that line of reasoning.”

Peskov rejects Putin allegedly leaves G20 summit over Ukraine situation pressure

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov rejected reports that Vladimir Putin is allegedly leaving urgently the ongoing G20 summit over the pressure on him due to the situation in Ukraine.

“This is full nonsense,” he said, adding that “Negotiators are raising this issue constantly.” “This is an ordinary routine situation,” he added.

Several media reported earlier that the Russian leader planned to leave the G20 summit before its end over the pressure exerted on him over the situation around Ukraine.

Putin To Leave G20 Summit Early After Being Criticized Over Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to leave the G20 summit early, a member of his delegation said, after Western leaders blasted Moscow on Saturday for the crisis in Ukraine and threatened more sanctions.

The Russian official told Reuters that Putin planned to skip a working session on Sunday at the two-day summit in Brisbane and bring forward his departure because he needed to attend meetings in Moscow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Being bullied and accused about something you didn't do has got to raise your blood pressure somewhat: I am sure this is the same for Putin, who had to believe, after the way he was confronted on alleged Ukraine "aggression" and the downing of MH17, that this was not a climate which could possibly be productive for Russian interests, so decided to opt out early.

So far, as intelligent, independent observers have stated, there have been no provable Russia military moves on Eastern Ukraine. The military moving on Eastern Ukraine has been entirely from Kiev's side, period, end of discussion.

And as to the downing of MH17: Putin had stated that he looks forward to all the facts coming out. And please remember: there would have been absolutely zero benefits for Russia shooting down this plane over Eastern Ukraine; there would, however, be a huge propaganda coup if was Ukrainian military who ultimately shot down this plane, to blame Russia for it.

And notice that the so-called "investigators" of the calamity have been very, very reticent to release their results in a timely manner.

As reported at sherryquestioningall.com on August 18, 2014:

Just a month ago the amount of war rhetoric and accusations against Russia from the U.S. and other Western countries was loud and screaming. Russia/Putin must pay, per Hillary Clinton. Ukraine wanted NATO military immediately to go against Russia. Now MH17 has been forgotten. It is almost as if it never happened from the silence. I have done a search about the black box results from MH17. The latest I found was from July 30th. They have only released that there was a massive decompression event. One article has the excuse that the black boxes were old and may only provide sketchy data. If there was any proof that Russia had committed the shooting down of MH17 it would be everywhere, but instead there is silence with no data from the black boxes being released. That means that the information from the air traffic controller in Kiev was correct along with Russia's intelligence they released showing Ukraine is the one who shot down the plane. So No outrage anymore from the West... in fact you would think it never happened now. Update: 12:15pm: Russia is calling for UN Security Council to release their results and do a briefing on MH 17.

Russia urgently, desperately wants this information out, because it will completely exonerate them from any of the charges about the downing of this plane from the US and the West.

Russia to Open Arctic Military Drone Base 420 Miles off the Alaskan Coast

Russia has announced plans to build a drone base for military reconnaissance in a town just 420 miles off mainland Alaska and just over 300 miles off the US state’s St Lawrence Island, Russia’s state news agency reported on Thursday.

“The command of the eastern military district in charge of the military development of the Arctic zone has moved forward with plans to form an unmanned aerial vehicle division,” Alexandr Gordeev, spokesperson for the district said.

The new base’s key objective will be to provide air reconnaissance for the Russian navy in its eastern waters which directly border U.S. waters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the massive, swelling demonization of both Russia and Putin, coupled with economic sanctions which could well lead to a shooting war between Russia and the West, I cannot blame Russia at all for this move.

After all, I am certain that the US and the West maintain air reconnaissance against the Russian Navy at this point.

While Vladimir Putin was all smiles as he was welcomed to the 2014 G20 on Saturday afternoon, Bloomberg.com reported that the Russian President was planning to leave Australia the very next day, with plans to bring a press conference forward on Sunday before leaving the country ahead of schedule.

The Telegraph reported that the move may have been prompted by stern words from Mr Cameron over Russia's involvement in the embattled nation of the Ukraine.

Media Blackout as U.S. Sponsors Genocide in Southeastern Ukraine

Here’s a typical example of what’s being blacked-out:

This is a photo of a Ukrainian soldier guiding a truck-full of prisoners toward a ditch, to which the prisoners are then dragged one-by-one, and thrown in, and shot — then covered over with dirt after all the corpses (and perhaps some living bleeding survivors) are piled in it.

BEX ALERT - Vladimir Putin hates Australia and sees it as an economic threat. And that’s just one reason for sending in the ships

WHY is Russia sending warships towards Australia in a needless act of belligerence?

We can sum that up in two really simple concise phrases. Firstly, Vladimir Putin is pissed off. And secondly, he’s showing off.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was sent to me by a reader in Australia as an example of the non-stop Putin-bashing coming out of the Australian media ahead of the G-20. Already someone is organizing huge anti-Putin protests which will be given full media play even as protests against other world leaders will be hidden. This feels like the last desperate gasp to try to get a war with Russia (and China) underway to prevent the Ruble (and the Yuan) from toppling the dollar as the global reserve and trade currency.

West ‘pre-staging new Ukraine war’

“One of the saddest lessons of history is if we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken.” -Dr. Carl Sagan, famous American astronomer

Signs are growing that Kiev is now ready to renew its attack on east Ukraine. While we don’t expect this one to be called an “anti-terrorist” campaign, we expect to hear more cries of “Russian invasion.”

I am sensing that the West hopes that, with a full-scale attack on the Republics, Russia will be forced to intercede militarily after the West already has - and NATO will finally have the Russian invasion it has wanted to trigger the next stage of boosting NATO forces on Russia’s borders.

Not alone: New radar data indicates other jets on MH17 course before crash

New radar data indicating that military aircraft were in the air near Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 when it crashed in eastern Ukraine on July 17 has been released by a Russian air safety consultancy.

The consultancy provided a snapshot representing the readings taken by a radar station located in Russia’s Rostov, near the Ukrainian border, shortly before and about 20 minutes after the MH17 crash.

According to Sergey Melnichenko, CEO of Aviation Safety consultancy, there were one or two warplanes in the air close to the Malaysian airliner. The data casts doubt on the version of the tragedy favored by Western nations, which claims the plane was shot down from the ground by rebel forces with a sophisticated surface-to-air missile.

Putin "Prepares For Economic War", Buys Whopping 55 Tonnes Of Gold In Q3

Just as China is buying 'cheap' oil with both hands and feet, so Russia, according to the latest data from The World Gold Council (WGC) has been buying gold in huge size. Dwarfing the rest of the world's buying in Q3, Russia added a stunning 55 tonnes to its reserves, as The Telegraph reports, Putin is taking advantage of lower gold prices to pack the vaults of Russia's central bank with bullion as it prepares for the possibility of a long, drawn-out economic war with the West.

Russia bought more gold in Q3 then all other countries combined...

Vladimir Putin's government is understood to be hoarding vast quantities of gold, having tripled stocks to around 1,150 tonnes in the last decade. These reserves could provide the Kremlin with vital firepower to try and offset the sharp declines in the rouble.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the Western drum beat on both Russian and Putin demonization, and the the reality that the opening salvos have already rung out in the economic war against it, possibly leading to a shooting war, can you blame Putin or Russia's central bank for having made this move?!?

Putin: Russian Economy Won't Be Dominated by 'Dollar Dictatorship'

Russia is leaving the dictatorship of the market where oil goods are based on the dollar and won't back down in face of a drastic drop in world prices on energy resources, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday.

Russia plans to leave the “dollar dictatorship” of market oil prices and turn to using the country’s national currency and the Chinese yuan, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday.

“We are leaving the dictatorship of the market where oil goods are based on the dollar and will increase the possibilities of using [other] national currencies: the ruble and the yuan,” Putin said in an interview with the Russian state news agency TASS.

On a November 9 meeting on the sidelines of the APEC summit Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed the possibility of using the yuan in transactions in fields of mutual cooperation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Methinks that President Obama may have shot himself in both feet by brokering a covert deal with Saudi Arabia to ratchet down oil prices, thus hoping to cripple Russia's oil infrastructure, which is a huge part of its economy.

If, in fact, President Obama does play chess, Putin is 20 moves ahead of him almost every time.

Russia Stations Warships Off Australian Coast Ahead Of G-20 Summit

In recent days, four Russian warships have entered international waters off the northeast Australian coast to coincide with Putin's visit to Australia for the summit that brings together the leaders of the world's 20 biggest industrialized and developing economies. Australia, in turn, sent three warships of its own to monitor them.

The Russian embassy said on Friday that Russia's Pacific fleet was testing its range, and could be used as security for Putin.

Abbott was not impressed.

"Russia is being much more assertive now than it has been for a very long time," he said at a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron, also in Australia for the summit. "Interestingly, Russia's economy is declining even as Russia's assertiveness is increasing."

The prime minister, who met with Putin earlier this week on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Beijing, aired details of his conversation with the Russian leader.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Australian PM Abbott: your ego is attempting to write checks your country's military cannot cash.

And remember: these Russian warships are still in international waters, so provoking them is a big, fat, hairy diplomatic no-no.

Putin has said, publicly, that he is looking forward to having all the facts of the downing of Malaysian Flight 17 to come out.

Prime Minister Abbott, please think (for a moment): would a world leader with anything to hide on this issue actually say this?!?

And please remember that there has been intense reticence for those investigators with the evidence to come clean with all of it.

And why is this?!?

And sir, I really hope - and PRAY - that some of your intelligence folks are reading this right the heck now.

As reported on November 5th 2014 at globalresearch.ca:

This was a Ukrainian Government job. It was close-in. (No missile fired from the distance more than 30,000 feet down to the ground could have been that precise to target the pilot rather than the far larger target of the plane’s entire body.) It came from the Government that Obama installed there in February and that’s now carrying out an ethnic-cleansing campaign against the residents in Ukraine’s southeast, the places where Yanukovych’s voters live (to the extent that they still can and do live).Compare that picture with the following one, which I take from a propaganda-site for the U.S. regime, and so which is intended instead to support the Administration’s line on this, certainly not Haisenko’s explanation of how the airliner was downed, though it actually supports Haisenko’s case: As regards whether there were actually two fighter jets firing into the Malaysian airliner or only one, a proponent of the single-jet hypothesis, Bill Johnson, posted as a reader-comment to my article on August 4th, a series of extreme close-ups of the side-panel, in which he inferred that the explanation of the apparent left-side (pilot-side) bullets was probably the shape of the bullets. I then asked him why he declined to accept the possible existence of two jets. He said, “from what I could find Russian military radar detected only one Ukrainian fighter jet, not two. I have looked and looked for any type of radar confirmation of a second fighter jet and can not find it.” However, the most virginal, earliest, online evidence concerning the matter was on July 17th, within moments of the downing, headlined in the subsequent English translation, “Spanish Air Controller @ Kiev Borispol Airport: Ukraine Military Shot Down Boeing #MH17,” and it included, “@spainbuca’s TWITTER FEED,” which included his observation, only minutes after the downing, “2 jet fighters flew very close” to the plane. Furthermore, immediately before that, he had tweeted, “The B777 plane flew escorted by Ukraine jet fighter until 2 minutes before disappearing from the radar.” So, perhaps the second jet appeared distinct to him only immediately prior to the downing. The accompanying news-report, also on July 17th, said: “This Kiev air traffic controller is a citizen of Spain and was working in the Ukraine. He was taken off duty as a civil air-traffic controller along with other foreigners immediately after a Malaysia Airlines passenger aircraft was shot down over the Eastern Ukraine killing 295 passengers and crew on board. The air traffic controller suggested in a private evaluation and basing it on military sources in Kiev, that the Ukrainian military was behind this shoot down. Radar records were immediately confiscated after it became clear a passenger jet was shot down.” If this is true, then the radar-records upon the basis of which those tweets had been sent were “confiscated.”

Mr. Prime Minister, I beg you - in the interests of peace, and global economic prosperity - to have some of your military forensics people analyze this information, and someone, please tell me where, precisely, the logic flaws are, because I am listening with both ears.

One of the traits of great leaders is the ability to admit that perhaps, they possibly could have been wrong, because they didn't quite have all the pieces of an issue quite sorted, and analyzed.

But it appears that your demonizing of Russia and Putin are part of a larger PR strategy to "groom" the West for a war against it, to prevent the rise of the ruble, and the Russian economy in general.

Yes, Russia's economy will be hurt by Saudi Arabia's ratcheting down their oil prices, in a covert deal with President Obaman; but sir, that will only be temporary, barring an outright war against it.

Russian SU24 Bomber Faces Off Against US Aegis Destroyer– And Wins….12 Times.

US destroyer “Donald Cook” with cruise missiles “Tomahawk” entered the neutral waters of the Black Sea on April 10. The purpose was a demonstration of force and intimidation in connection with the position of Russia in Ukraine and Crimea. The appearance of American warships in these waters is in contradiction of the Montreux Convention about the nature and duration of stay in the Black Sea by the military ships of countries not washed by this sea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story is that a Russian bomber made 12 simulated attack runs against the Aegis ship. All 12 times the Aegis painted the incoming "threat" with targeting radars, and all 12 times the Aegis system shut down! Aegis was designed to (depending on the various ship designs) track and engage anywhere from 90 to 120 simultaneous aerial targets. And today it cannot handle just one!

America is no longer able to build effective weapons systems. But they do manufacture pretty targets!

Russia warns France over warship delivery

Russia has warned France of “serious” consequences should Paris fail to deliver a Mistral-class assault warship by the end of the month, a report says.

The Russian state news agency RIA Novosti published the report on Friday, quoting an anonymous high-ranking Moscow source.

The source told the state-run agency that “We are waiting until the end of the month, then we will lodge serious claims.”

The first of two Mistral helicopter carriers were supposed to be delivered on Friday; however, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drain said a day earlier that “no delivery date can be fixed at this stage.”

When Henry Kissinger Makes Sense

The American public is faced with an information crisis as the New York Times and other mainstream U.S. media outlets have become little more than propaganda organs on behalf of the neoconservative agenda and particularly the rush into a new Cold War with Russia – so much so that even ex-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has broken ranks.

MSM articles consistently reek of bias – and in some cases make little sense. For instance, Times correspondent David M. Herszenhorn, one of the leading propagandists, wrote an alarmist story on Wednesday about a new Russian “invasion” of Ukraine but curiously he had the alleged Russian tank column heading east toward the Ukrainian city of Donetsk which would be back toward Russia, not westward into Ukraine.

NATO 1949: The Origin of an Offensive, Expansionist, Imperialist Military Alliance

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, was launched sixty five years ago following the signature of the Atlantic Pact in 1949. The original member states that came together under US tutelage claimed that their alliance was dedicated to the preservation of peace and to the defence of Western Europe against the supposed threat of military aggression. It is noteworthy that the launch of NATO coincided with the intensification of the Cold War, the political division of Germany and the first tentative steps by the US and Britain to rearm the new West German state.

Third Australian warship sent to halt Russian flotilla bound for G20 in Brisbane

A THIRD Australian warship has been dispatched to intercept a Russian flotilla steaming towards the G20 summit in Brisbane and a fourth navy vessel is ready to divert to the area.

The replenishment ship HMAS Sirius is heading into the Coral Sea to support the frigates HMAS Parramatta and HMAS Stuart and the frigate HMAS Sydney is preparing to divert from an exercise in New Zealand to join the mission, according to a government source.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am confused: why are you willing to have the Australian Navy confront Russian ships, when you yourself described this as follows:

"PRIME Minister Tony Abbott has described the convoy of heavily armed Russian warships cruising international waters towards Australia’s north as part of “freedom of navigation”.

And why, sir,do you appear to be hell bent on a military "interception"?!? If these ships stay within the boundaries of international waters, any miscommunication, any wrong move on the part of either the Australian or Russian side could spark a very grave military encounter.

Please tell me, and the world, that this is NOT your intention, and that this is not an "Abbott/Putin" male attribute member measuring contest!!

Azerbaijan Risks New Armenia Conflict as Military Chopper Downed

Azerbaijan shot down an Armenian helicopter that it said violated its airspace in an attack that may trigger fresh confrontations between the two countries over a disputed region.

The Mi-24 helicopter was “trying to attack” Azeri positions near a cease-fire line when it was hit, the Defense Ministry in Baku said on its website. Armenia’s Defense Ministry said the aircraft was unarmed and called its downing an “unprecedented provocation.”

“This is the worst military incident in more than 20 years since the cease-fire,” Thomas de Waal, senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said by e-mail from Washington.

Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a war as the Soviet Union collapsed that claimed about 30,000 lives and displaced 1.2 million people. The latest rupture of the 1994 cease-fire marks a potentially dangerous turn in the Caucasus flashpoint located between Turkey, Iran and Russia, which has a mutual defense pact with Armenia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not just the chopper which got shot down, but its crew, which could be dead; there are no indications in this story that there were any survivors.

This could get nasty in a heartbeat, because Armenia and Azerbaijan have had rough relations over the years, due to Armenia having seized Nagorno-Karabakh, and the reality Russia has a mutual defense pact with Armenia.

To all the adults in the room in the bowels of geopolitics, wherever the heck you are, whatever the heck you are doing, please drop it, and see what you can do to hold this fragile peace together.

As you understand, the risks of a war in this region may well be a prelude to a much wider military confrontation.

Out of Cash, Kiev Offers to Pay Soldiers with Land

Kyiv – The families of the fallen servicemen, as well as wounded fighters, participants of the ATO, will be able to receive free land lots in Kyiv, stated city head Vitaly Klitschko on Tuesday. As such, the Kyiv City Council plans to create a special committee during the nearest session to accept applications and determine the queue for receiving land lots. However, the city officials are not ready to name exact terms in which according decisions will be made and the land lots allocated. So far Vitaly Klitschko has personally inspected 10 hectares of land in the village of Bykivnya, which is intended for 38 families of the fallen soldiers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Ukraine is flat broke, and this is all they can do to compensate the families of their fallen, and those badly wounded....if, in fact, these people will accept the deal.

And what about having to do construction on their own?!? Where are the plans for these houses supposed to come from, along with the money for building materials?!?

My day job is marketing architecture, and I know, as well as I know my own name, that unless intelligent plans are created, then executed by reasonably skilled contractors, what you will have at the end of the day could well be titled identically to the current Top Gear series: "ambitious, but rubbish!!"

When people have no background in either architecture or construction, the end result of their efforts could well be unmitigated disaster.

Russia To Have SWIFT Alternative By May

In the past, western sanctioners have sabre-rattled cutting off Russian from SWIFT - the international inter-bank payment system - as a next step in squeezing the oligarchs into submission (though 'independent' SWIFT distanced itself from those calls). Now however, as RT reports, Russia intends to have its own international inter-bank system up and running by May 2015. The Central of Russia says it needs to speed up preparations for its version of SWIFT in case of possible ”challenges” from the West. If successful, this would pose a further challenge to the USD's reign as sanction blowback reverberates once again.

Putin to Australian PM: Russia Hopes All MH17 Crash Data Will Go Public

Russian President Vladimir Putin in conversation with Australian PM Tony Abbott said he hopes all information about the crash of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in eastern Ukraine will be made public, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told RIA Novosti.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is saying this with absolute certainty, because when the whole truth comes out, the world will learn that it was Ukrainian military which shot this plane out of the sky, and not Russia.

In confronting Putin in such an accusatory manner, the Australian PM Abbott looked more like the "Abbott" from the US's comedy series, "Abbott and Costello"; unfortunately, this is not funny, given the horrific reality of the situation. Abbott was simply "carrying the US's water" with this.

We are seeing a growing demonization of Russia, potentially ahead of a war between Russia and NATO, and I, for one, am not buying it.

He posted a comment on Facebook in which he gives a detailed explanation of this assistance.

He was also received by IRI (International Republican Institute) and NDI (National Democratic Institute), the international branches of the two main American political parties, and met with democratic Senator Robert Menendez and republican senator Robert Corker.

“Menendez and Corker are the two senators who have sponsored the Ukraine Freedom Support Act, a bill that will allocate money to provide assistance to Ukraine, including the supply of weapons. Radar, anti-tank weapons, drones, communications systems and many other useful things for our army. “

Russia sends warships towards Australia before G20 meeting

Russia has sent a fleet of warships towards Australia in an apparent display of muscle-flexing ahead of the G20 meeting amid tensions between the two countries over the MH17 crash.

Defence announced late on Wednesday it is "monitoring Russian naval vessels that are currently transiting through international waters to the north of Australia".

It stressed: "The movement of these vessels is entirely consistent with provisions under international law for military vessels to exercise freedom of navigation in international waters."

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott did indeed confront Putin and demand Putin "confess" to his role in the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines flight 17. This is Putin's reminder to Abbot that he is not really in a position to demand anything.

Ruble-yuan settlements will cut energy sales in US dollars – Putin

Doing away with the US dollar and switching to ruble and yuan payments will significantly increase Russia and China’s say in energy and financial markets, Vladimir Putin has said, adding that the first deals are already underway.

In short the President said the US dollar has no future, and that the ruble and the yuan have better long-term prospects.

“Payments in rubles and yuan are very promising. Switching to such a large-scale work means that the impact of the dollar on the global energy sector will objectively decline. This is not bad either for the global economy, or the world of finance and the world energy markets,” Putin said at the APEC Business Summit in Beijing Monday.

“It will help expand our capabilities in mutual trade and influence both world financial and energy markets," the president said.

Addicted to Lies: Kiev, CIA Still Pushing Fake Reports of ‘Russia Invading Ukraine’

On Friday, the Ukrainian military’s PR machine spun-up its latest episode of the illusive “Russian Invasion”, this time accusing Moscow of dispatching a column of 32 tanks and “truckloads of Russian troops” into the country’s eastern region.

The West are being very choosy with their language – in case they have to deny they ever said it later. Presently, the West and Kiev are stopping short of labeling the non-event as an invasion, instead calling it “Russian aggression”, and a “cross-border incursion” to aid separatists, with the all-important caveat of “unconfirmed report”, a PR system standardized by CIA media handlers currently in residence inside the US-backed Kiev regime.

Heaviest Shelling In A Month Hits Eastern Ukraine

East Ukraine's rebel stronghold Donetsk was pummel on Sunday by the heaviest shelling in a month, and the OSCE said it spotted an armored column of troops without insignia in rebel territory that Kiev said proved Moscow had sent reinforcements.

A two-month-old ceasefire to end a war that has killed 4,000 people has appeared shakier than ever in the past few days, with both sides accusing the other of having violated the terms of the peace plan.

Reuters journalists inside Donetsk, who have been there throughout the fighting, said the shelling sounded more intense than at any time since early October, a period when a playground was struck killing at least 10 people. Sunday's strikes appeared to come from territory held by both government and rebel forces.

Top Spymaster Explains How Russian Intelligence Sees the US

US Policy towards Russia today simply continues US Policy towards the USSR during the Cold War

…… if the catastrophe in Ukraine had not happened some other grounds would have been found to step up the policy of “containment” of our country. This course has been pursued unswervingly for many decades; only the forms and tactics of its implementation change.

As you know, after World War II the confrontation between the USSR and the West headed by the United States took the form of a “cold war”. The military-political component of this standoff was entrusted to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), formed on the initiative of the United States on 4 April 1949. An analysis of NATO’s practical activity indicates that in creating the alliance the United States was pursuing two main objectives.

First, a military bloc directed against the USSR was formed under American leadership.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The path the US government is following is, ultimately, a path to war with Russia.

And I would like to politely point out to those precious few adults in the room in that swamp known as DC, that at this time in its history, the US military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous, because it could go nuclear, from the US military's side, in a heartbeat.

Evidence Is Now Conclusive: Two Ukrainian Government Fighter-Jets Shot Down Malaysian Airlines MH17. It was Not a ‘Buk’ Surface to Air Missile

The reader-comments to my July 31st article, “First Examination of Malaysian MH-17 Cockpit Photo Shows Ukraine Government Shot that Plane Down,” provided links and leads to independent additional confirmatory evidence backing up that account, of retired Lufthansa pilot Peter Haisenko’s reconstruction of this event, to such an extent that, after exploring the matter further, I now feel confident enough to say that the evidence on this matter is, indeed, “conclusive,” that Haisenko is right.

Here is all of that evidence, which collectively convinces me that Haisenko’s conclusion there, is, indeed, the only one that can even possibly explain this wreckage:

“There have been two or three pieces of fuselage that have been really pockmarked with what almost looks like machine-gun fire, very very strong machine-gun fire.”

This remarkable statement comes not from Haisenko, but from one of the first OSCE investigators who arrived at the scene of the disaster.

And you wonder why we have doubts?
