Of lions, children and innocence of lives given

If you were a lion you’d have little in common with any little girl, unless it’s the summer of 2015 when you could both die horrible deaths on the other side of the ocean and people on this side would know.

Assange says Snowden’s escape to Russia was his idea

Assange says Snowden’s escape to Russia was his idea | Global politics | Scoop.it
Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange could have played a role in the decision by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden to seek asylum in Russia, instead of Latin America. Assange says it was he who advised Snowden to turn to Moscow for refuge.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Snowden “preferred Latin America, but my advice was that he should take asylum in Russia despite the negative PR consequences, because my assessment is that he had a significant risk of being kidnapped from Latin America on CIA orders…kidnapped and possibly killed,” Assange said in an interview with The Times.

Треть британцев считают наплыв мигрантов самой важной проблемой в стране | Global politics | Scoop.it
Миграционный кризис в Кале заставляет французских и британских чиновников искать выход из ситуации. Власти Великобритании выделяют деньги на возведение высоких ограждений в надежде защитить страну от нелегалов. Однако жители Соединённого Королевства уверены, что подобные меры не принесут результатов. По данным опроса, проведённого компанией Ipsos Mori, треть британцев считают эту проблему ключевой для страны. Подробнее — корреспондент RT Анастасия Чуркина.

Theresa May: Savior or slaughterer of black people?

Theresa May: Savior or slaughterer of black people? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Over the last three months, I have been writing a short series of articles on some of the horrific deaths in police custody that have taken place in Britain in recent years and the fight for justice waged by the families of the victims and their supporters. Each story is unique, but there are certain similarities, depressingly familiar to those who have followed such cases over the years.

American, not Russian, aggression is the real problem

American, not Russian, aggression is the real problem | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia didn’t want a new Cold War. The myth of a “revanchist Russia” is convenient spin. The real issue is American interventionism.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Russia has no desire to be an enemy of the US and is not a threat to any genuine American interests. Actually, Russia is not even much of a danger to most of the things it’s supposed to be a danger to. Like the Baltic States, for instance. Or the EU project.

However, relentless anti-Russia propaganda in the US corporate media has brought us to this point. American elites are now more united in their disdain for Russia than they ever were during the Cold War. During that period, dissenting voices were heard. Now, they are completely frozen out.

Indeed, anybody with any real knowledge of Russia is condemned as “Putin’s shill” these days.

Shocking videos show 3yo girl making Nazi salutes, pledging to ‘knife Russians'

Shocking videos show 3yo girl making Nazi salutes, pledging to ‘knife Russians' | Global politics | Scoop.it
Isn't it adorable to watch an enthusiastic toddler doing what her big brother asks her to? Probably not, if she is making Nazi salutes, saying she would gladly knife Russians or impersonating an Islamist fighter brandishing a big knife in her hand.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The hate videos sparked widespread condemnation online. The use of a small child in propaganda was compared by some commentators to what the Islamic State does. A video purported to be produced by ISIS showed a baby-faced boy beheading a stuffed bear.

Bombing Syria: What's in it for Australia? :  Information Clearing House - ICH

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Living up to his nickname, Bonsai Howard, speaking at an Asia-Pacific Summit, boasted Australia is America’s “sheriff” in the South Pacific region.

"I suppose America wants a puppet of its own in this region whom they can trust who will do whatever they wish,” responded Malaysian Deputy Defense Minister Shafie Apdal.

There was no justifiable or valid reason for Howard to follow Bush into a war of choice that was Iraq. All it did was put a target on Australia’s back. Australia’s involvement in Iraq made it precipitously more dangerous for Australian tourists abroad – and several al-Qaeda led attacks specifically targeted against Australian interests and people in Indonesia in the years 2002 to 2009 speaks to that assertion.

Clint Watts argues that the United States should not negotiate with the Nusra Front, al-Qaida's official affiliate in Syria, as it currently stands, but rather should seek to fracture Nusra and then negotiate with its splinters as an alternative approach for building capable ground forces to battle the Islamic State.

Article: Welcome to the trade deal wars

Article: Welcome to the trade deal wars | Global politics | Scoop.it
It's still a very open game. It's about connectivity. It's about global production chains. It's about harmonized rules of trade. But most of all it's a tremendously high-stakes power play; who -- the US or China -- will eventually set the global rules on trade and investment.

Fort Russ: Tank airlift explains why there are no photos of Russian tanks crossing the border. And there are aircraft carriers!

Fort Russ: Tank airlift explains why there are no photos of Russian tanks crossing the border. And there are aircraft carriers! | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The US government confirmed this information, asserting that they have clear satellite photographs, but they could not show them for reasons of security. Of course, publishing the satellite photos is hardly necessary, as anyone with some research in social networks can plainly confirm the information. Airlifting the tanks now makes clear why no tanks could be photographed crossing the border to Ukraine. In earlier conjectures of the western press a satellite failure was incorrectly blamed.

Ukraine's selective reporting of this event (omitting the fact that the murderer was a Ukrainian citizen) demonstrates the extent to which Ukraine is desperate to portray the less-than-ideal situation of Crimean Tatars as a result of Russian "annexation."

The number of migrants and refugees fleeing MENA (Middle East and North Africa) for safer shores has risen dramatically over the last year.

90% of Kiev’s Donbass intel last summer ‘appeared untrue’ – Ukrainian General Staff

90% of Kiev’s Donbass intel last summer ‘appeared untrue’ – Ukrainian General Staff | Global politics | Scoop.it
Up to 90 percent of the intelligence information on eastern Ukraine obtained by Kiev in the summer of 2014 appeared incorrect, confessed the head of Ukraine’s General Staff, bringing Kiev’s accusations against Russia even more into question.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Pyatt's and Poroshenko's data are wishful thinking, they would love them to be true in order to "prove" the "Russian aggression" their politicians and media keep parroting so much. Unfortunately for them, it is a figment of their warped imagination. Pyatt appears as a ridiculous man with his forged images, and Poroshenko as an idiot with his figures that no one in their sanity can believe.
