Fort Russ: Buy a seat in the Verkhovna Rada: $3,000,000 to $10,000,000. A good investment

Fort Russ: Buy a seat in the Verkhovna Rada: $3,000,000 to $10,000,000. A good investment | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why should the West help Ukraine continue despite corruption?
Fiala: Because this is a good investment. The citizens here do not have to be convinced of the necessity of change. They are willing, even to suffer. The gas tariffs were increased several times over without significant protests. In addition: Ukraine will depend for years on Western loans. This gives foreigners leverage. Money only after fulfillment of the reform guidelines, has to be the motto.

«Деловая жизнь» — RT: Ложные данные о потерях РФ на Украине появились на сайте после взлома | Global politics | Scoop.it
Западные и украинские СМИ публикуют «сенсационные» сведения о потерях российских вооружённых сил на Украине со ссылкой на Forbes. Причём само американское издание указывает в качестве первоисточника российский информационный портал «Деловая жизнь». Корреспондент RT Илья Петренко попытался выйти на связь с редакцией, чтобы выяснить, откуда её журналисты почерпнули данные об участии армии России в конфликте на востоке Украины. Представитель журнала заявил, что редакция удалила с сайта вымышленные

 23 августа редакция получила письма с просьбой разъяснить информацию, которая содержалась в статье, в её последней секции. Таким образом был обнаружен взлом сайта. Редактор удалил из статьи добавленный злоумышленниками текст. По предварительно полученным нами данным, хакеры заходили с киевского IP-адреса».

The battle for Sanaa - the tale of a resistance | Global politics | Scoop.it
Yemen has reached a decisive crossroads in its fights against imperial Saudi Arabia. As communities, sects and regions have been pitted against each other to serve foreign powers' agenda, the Houthi-led resistance movement might still carry a few arrows to its bow.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Survival wars along with Yemen: Syria, the Kurds, the Palestinians, the Donbass, ..., and so on and so forth. And there is a common sponsor: the Western powers.

Article: The Myth of a Russian "Threat"

Article: The Myth of a Russian "Threat" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Not a week goes by without the Pentagon carping about an ominous Russian "threat." The connection's wet dreams -- shared, incidentally, by the neo-cons -- would be a glorious return to the looting phase of Russia in the 1990s, when the Russian industrial-military complex had collapsed and the West was plundering natural resources to Kingdom Come.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Threats are the combination, or the aggregate, of capabilities and intentions. Let me set aside for the moment, intentions, because I don't know what Russia intends."

So Dempsey admits he does not know what he's talking about. What he seems to know is that Russia is a "threat" anyway -- in space, cyber space, ground-based cruise missiles, submarines.

And most of all, a threat to NATO; "One of the things that Russia does seem to do is either discredit, or even more ominously, create the conditions for the failure of NATO."

So Russia "does seem" to discredit an already self-discredited NATO. That's not much of a "threat."

Эквадор первым из членов ОПЕК стал продавать нефть по цене ниже себестоимости

Эквадор первым из членов ОПЕК стал продавать нефть по цене ниже себестоимости | Global politics | Scoop.it
Эквадор стал первым членом ОПЕК, вынужденным продавать нефть по цене ниже себестоимости. Тяжёлая ситуация на рынке побудила несколько стран, входящих в организацию, призвать Саудовскую Аравию — фактического лидера ОПЕК — к проведению экстренного совещания. По словам Эда Хирса, управляющего директора компании Hillhouse Resources, Эр-Рияд тоже находится в непростом положении, поскольку он быстро расходует свои золотовалютные резервы.

Russia accepted over 1mn Ukrainian refugees forced out of homes by Donbass war

Russia accepted over 1mn Ukrainian refugees forced out of homes by Donbass war | Global politics | Scoop.it
Over 1 million people have moved to Russia from southeast Ukraine since the beginning of the armed conflict and about 600,000 of them decided never to return home, the head of the Federal Migration Service says.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

So while the European states cry out for the "flood" of "migrants", or refugees, the Russians humanely welcome over one million from Ukraine, i.e., a conflict provoked by the Western greed to expansion and domination. Likewise the Europeans should assume that the wars they have launched in places such as Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and so on, have provoked such a huge humanitarian catastrophe, and get ready to welcome the refugees, like in Russia.

Scientists to flood Middle East with 1,000s of 3D cameras to ‘save’ ancient sites from ISIS

Scientists to flood Middle East with 1,000s of 3D cameras to ‘save’ ancient sites from ISIS | Global politics | Scoop.it
Scientists are going to use thousands of specially-modified 3D cameras to preserve for humanity images of historic sites and artifacts in the Middle East, which are at risk of being destroyed by Islamic State jihadists.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

What a sad consolation! Virtual images to preserve historic sites which speak to us of our past, and which are destroyed by a bunch of mindless brutes, along with innocent people because of their faith or their ethnicity, and the world does nothing. ISIS is the present top of inhumanity and horror.
