Europe Must Not Be Forced Into A Nuclear War With Russia By John Scales Avery

Europe Must Not Be Forced Into A Nuclear War With Russia By John Scales Avery | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

A symptom of the megalomania and hubris of both Napoleon and Hitler was that they undertook to invade Russia's vast territory. In both cases, what followed was the defeat and downfall of the invaders. Today, Washington's dark government seems to be similarly seized with megalomania and hubris. Not only do the neo-conservatives contemplate dominance over Russia and the Middle East but also over China. As in the case of Napoleon and Hitler, the outcome must inevitably be a catastrophe.

Must Europe be involved? Must we be the accomplices in such a crime against international law and the Nuremberg principles? Must we be dragged into a war with Russia, very probably a nuclear war? Must European cities become targets for thermonuclear weapons? Are the people of Europe aware of this danger? Our mainstream media certainly do not make us sufficiently aware of it. Why are our leaders slaves to Washington's madmen? Have they been bribed? Have they been blackmailed through secrets revealed by the massive spying of the NSA?

‘We should have blown up Donetsk regional administration’ – Ukraine’s Interior Minister

‘We should have blown up Donetsk regional administration’ – Ukraine’s Interior Minister | Global politics | Scoop.it
Blowing up administrative buildings captured by rebels in eastern Ukraine one year ago could have saved thousands of lives in the military conflict that followed, Ukraine’s interior minister told a TV channel.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

So Avakov was behind the burning people alive in Odessa? It seems, as that is the action he is defending. What he omits is that hadn't they violently taken the administration buildings in Kiev, the bloodshed and the destruction of Ukraine could have been avoided indeed.

The $160 Billion Cost: Why Ukraine's Viktor Yanukovych Spurned EU's Offer, on 20 Nov. 2013 By Eric Zuesse

The $160 Billion Cost: Why Ukraine's Viktor Yanukovych Spurned EU's Offer, on 20 Nov. 2013 By Eric Zuesse | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Stefan, if we sign, will you help us?" Yanukovych asked. Füle was speechless. "Sorry, we aren't the IMF. Where do these numbers come from?" he finally demanded. "I am hearing them for the first time." "They are secret numbers," Yanukovych replied. "Can you imagine what would happen if our people were to learn of these numbers, were they to find out what convergence with the EU would cost our country?”

The Money Trail: How the US Fostered Yemen's Separatist Movement / Sputnik International

The Money Trail: How the US Fostered Yemen's Separatist Movement / Sputnik International | Global politics | Scoop.it
As Saudi Arabia and its allies have begun the bombing campaign against Yemen, in the south, a separatist movement calling for a "State of South Arabia" is emerging. Fostered by the US, it will leave the Houthis with two hostile states at their borders and locked access to the sea, if it succeeds.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Indeed, while Russia has been repeatedly accused of helping Donbas independence supporters, the US has openly fostered the south Yemen separatist movement. At the same time, while Ukraine's President Yanukovych was called illegitimate by the US after fleeing the country, Yemen's Hadi has remained "legitimate" and has even called for a Saudi Arabian military operation against the people who ousted him.

Top Jerk: Clarkson’s bigotry typical of arrogant British elite

Top Jerk: Clarkson’s bigotry typical of arrogant British elite | Global politics | Scoop.it
The decision by the BBC to sack Jeremy Clarkson over his physical assault and abuse of one of the producers of Top Gear, the program on which Clarkson was the main presenter, raises more questions than answers.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The point is that Oisin Tymon, the victim of Clarkson’s abuse and assault, had been willing to accept this treatment as the price of working on such a high profile TV show as Top Gear and for such a big celebrity as Jeremy Clarkson. This is the saddest aspect of the affair - the way that celebrities or people in positions of influence and power within the media are allowed to get away with treating people however they like with little or no consequence. Worse is the way that Oisin Tymon has been subjected to a torrent of abuse on social media since the story came out, up to and including death threats. Clearly for many people Jeremy Clarkson can do no wrong, and on the contrary is seen as some kind of folk hero.
