OpEdNews Article: Article: What is the Real Truth?

OpEdNews Article: Article: What is the Real Truth? | Global politics | Scoop.it
I have a few questions about all of this. President Obama has told us that we must participate because we are the "indispensible" nation. We have the most powerful armed forces and the best led military "that the World has ever known". He says that it is up to us to lead the way. I'm wondering why Turkey, a nation with the largest military in NATO, doesn't get involved?

OpEdNews Article: Article: The Fake Terror Threat Used to Justify Bombing Syria | Global politics | Scoop.it
As the Obama Administration prepared to bomb Syria without congressional or U.N. authorization, it faced two problems-- the difficulty of sustaining public support for a new years-long war against ISIS, and the lack of legal justification for launching a new bombing campaign with no viable claim of self-defense or U.N. approval.

Putin's plan to turn into lemonade the lemon that Obama handed him in Ukraine in February.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"For Ukraine, it is the end. It is a complete demise of the Ukrainian state as an industrial country. Nobody wants their products in the West because they are outdated, and they [the West] have their own manufacturers. What they [Ukraine] are doing right now is suicide."

Analysis of the reasons for the crash of flight MH17 , by Ivan A. Andrievskii

Analysis of the reasons for the crash of flight MH17 , by Ivan A. Andrievskii | Global politics | Scoop.it
1. The event
Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 (Amsterdam —Kuala-Lumpur) departed from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol at 10:14 UTC (14:14 Moscow Time) and was scheduled to arrive at its destination at 18:10 local time (22:10 UTC/2:10 Moscow time).
Echelon 330, including the 10 kilometers altitude that the crashed Boeing was flying at, was open for international transit flights over the territory of Ukraine. According to the data provided by the airline, contact with the airplane was lost at 14:15 (...)
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Crucial information is hidden in the wreckage and fragments of the crashed airplane, but this very information can easily be eliminated, distorted and concealed. It should not be forgotten that there are always people involved who seek to conceal each and every real fact. An indirect confirmation of this is the fact that on August 8th Ukraine, The Netherlands, Belgium and Australia signed an agreement allowing the disclosure of information regarding the investigation of the crash only at the consent of all parties involved.
