Death & lies: The only truth of flight MH17

Death & lies: The only truth of flight MH17 | Global politics | Scoop.it
The day Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 fell to Earth in pieces, everyone in our world was told Russia and Vladimir Putin murdered the 298 people aboard.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other EU leadership are reeling at this moment to steady a staggered confederation of nations. Spanish farmers burning EU flags over harvested peach crops, the imagery of that pretty much says it all. Sanctions levied on to a massive consumer nation like Russia, for no concrete reason, shows either a vast incompetency in the West, or an absolutely resolute posture toward conflict and chaos.

‘Rivers of blood’: Tory MP sparks outrage claiming Enoch Powell was right on race relations

‘Rivers of blood’: Tory MP sparks outrage claiming Enoch Powell was right on race relations | Global politics | Scoop.it
Race relations in the UK could be further inflamed after a veteran Tory MP told a constituent that Enoch Powell, author of the notorious 1968 “Rivers of Blood” speech, was correct to predict conflict caused by immigration.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

I like Spock's ideal: for an infinite diversity with infinite combinations (IDIC). This is the future of civilisation. The issue is not different colours and ideas, but the imposition of an alien ideology which will not tolerate any of the other, and which by and by is growing and displacing foreign and national alike who are not assimilated by their bigotry, gender-segregation, science-denial, religious persecution...
How can this be treated? Any idea out there? The challenge is that either way our tolerant and pluralist ways are threatened, whether by white supremacism or fanatic bigotry...

Anti-Russian rhetoric pre-dated Ukraine crisis, Moscow does not want spats - Lavrov

Anti-Russian rhetoric pre-dated Ukraine crisis, Moscow does not want spats - Lavrov | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the West started its “irrational attacks on Russia long before” this spring’s events in Ukraine, but insisted that Moscow is seeking to avoid “spiraling sanctions” with the EU and the US.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Russophobic obsession in the West was already widespread  during the decades leading to the Crimean war and reached hysteric proportions. More recently, such extreme anti-Russian rhetoric grew in the months leading to the Sochi games, i.e., before the Ukrainian events. The Games  weren't spoken of, and any pretext was found worth for a media campaign against Russia. Apparently outraged for an ill-conceived law protecting minors of age, no Western PM or President attended their opening (except the only gay PM, from Belgium!), whereas Hollande, Obama rushed to Saudi Arabia!

​Red alert: NATO mission creep advancing to Russian border

​Red alert: NATO mission creep advancing to Russian border | Global politics | Scoop.it
Buried beneath news of the Ice Bucket Challenge, and Islamic State’s newest video was an interview by NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, which should be of concern to everyone.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Fogh of war Rasmussen should have left the public stage a while ago and spared us of his rantings. What the heck is he still doing out there as if he represented anything? NATO? Wasn't he leaving? And what is NATO? A military clique. It is a shame we are in the hands of such sociopaths.

Kiev’s Moscow confrontation strategy yields no result – senior Russian MP

Kiev’s Moscow confrontation strategy yields no result – senior Russian MP | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Minsk summit has shown that the policy of ignoring and boycotting Russia promoted by Ukrainian authorities is ineffective and harmful, holds the State Duma’s foreign relations chief.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Yatsenyuk (Yats) is the US agent (as Ms Nuland F*** Europe clearly stated) and the Trilateral. His mission is to sever all relations with Russia and drag Europe into it. The EU politicians have shown how utterly incompetent they are in following him.

'Executions, amputations and lashings': ISIS commits war crimes in Syria, UN says

'Executions, amputations and lashings': ISIS commits war crimes in Syria, UN says | Global politics | Scoop.it
Both the Islamic State militants and the Syrian government have committed crimes against humanity during the civil war in Syria, a report by a special UN panel says.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“Bodies of those killed are placed on display for several days, terrorizing the local population. Women have been lashed for not abiding by ISIS’s dress code. In Ar-Raqqah, children as young as 10 are being recruited and trained at ISIS camps. ISIS has forcibly displaced Kurdish communities in northern Syria. Journalists and other media workers are systematically targeted.”
