OpEdNews Quicklink: Rand Paul: If "Hillary Clinton worked for Bill Clinton, she'd probably have been fired"

OpEdNews Quicklink: Rand Paul: If "Hillary Clinton worked for Bill Clinton, she'd probably have been fired" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Sen. Rand Paul on Friday defended his criticism of Hillary Clinton over the 2012 attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Kentucky Republican, rebutting claims that Benghazi criticism is "politically motivated," said Clinton's handling of the attack was a legitimate topic of discussion as she considers a presidential bid. Paul said, "I think had Hillary Clinton worked for Bill Clinton, she'd probably have been fired."

Les « États faillis », par Manlio Dinucci | Global politics | Scoop.it
Tandis que depuis la Libye en flammes des milliers d’hommes, de femmes et d’enfants, poussés par le désespoir, tentent chaque jour la traversée de la Méditerranée, et beaucoup y perdent la vie, le président Napolitano avertit « Attention aux foyers qui nous entourent », à commencer par « l’instabilité persistante et la fragilité de la situation en Libye ». Il oublie, et avec lui la quasi totalité des gouvernants et politiques, que c’est justement l’Italie qui a joué un rôle déterminant pour allumer en 2011 (...)

The true story of Mark Paslawsky, the 'only' American fighter with Kiev forces

The true story of Mark Paslawsky, the 'only' American fighter with Kiev forces | Global politics | Scoop.it
On Tuesday, August 20, a US army veteran named Mark Paslawsky was killed during a battle in Ilovyask, near Donetsk, which is currently held by anti-Kiev rebels.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Paslawsky was not an “ordinary Joe” from New Jersey with benign family connections to Ukraine who suddenly decided to help defend the motherland, he was the nephew of the notorious Nazi Mykola Lebed – who incredibly was employed by the CIA from 1949 to possibly as late as 1991. There is no insinuation that Paslawksy also harbored fascist or anti-Semitic beliefs, but family influences surely played a significant role in the formation of his world view.

‘No weapons for Israel!’ Protest group pours fake blood in Belgium airport

‘No weapons for Israel!’ Protest group pours fake blood in Belgium airport | Global politics | Scoop.it
A Belgian feminist activist group LilithS literally painted Liege Airport red with a hundred liters of fake blood at the facility’s role in arming Israel. The red pool of ‘blood’ symbolized their perceived ‘slaughter’ of Palestinians in Gaza by Israel.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Amsterdam’s Schipol airport in the Netherlands was used to transport Israeli arms from the United States. LilithS’s Facebook page states that from 2005 to 2006, more than 160 million explosives, 17 million weapons and one million cartridges, tear gas canisters and detonators were sent to Israel, via the Dutch capital. These weapons were used in Israel’s campaign against Lebanon in 2006 and led to the loss of over a thousand people, the group added.

Interview with Alexej Mozgovoi, August 21, 2014 Translator: Maria Razdiak Edited by S. Naylor   "If we were to speak of the operations which my unit carried out, I must caution: the word “operations” is an exaggeration. Currently, the war is mainly being fought in the media field: an information war. The actual military activity…
Enrique Ferro's insight:

“The Ukies claim to be fighting terrorism, while bombarding peaceful, innocent civilians, destroying whole city blocks and infrastructure. All of it! How is that?! If you are at war with us, fight us. But instead, they bombard cities and blame it on us… How? We have proof of the bombings: the weapons used and the directions from which the fire came. The flight trajectory can be calculated from the remaining crater. But, there is no arguing their impudent allegations; the unfounded, falsified fault.

Facts withheld regarding the MH17 Malaysian airlines crash. Dutch Government Refuses to Release Black Box Recordings

Facts withheld regarding the MH17 Malaysian airlines crash. Dutch Government Refuses to Release Black Box Recordings | Global politics | Scoop.it
Notable for its absence in the corporate media is any mention of the July 17 downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 over Ukrainian territory, killing all 298 people on board. At that time, and w...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Demands for an independent inquiry into the crash are growing. One petition raises the danger of the U.S. expansion of NATO and military encirclement of Russia and posed the possibility that Flight MH17’s crash resulted from an attempt to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose aircraft was returning from South America the same day.
