Эксперт: Сотрудничество с Китаем поможет компенсировать возможные потери России от санкций Запада

Эксперт: Сотрудничество с Китаем поможет компенсировать возможные потери России от санкций Запада | Global politics | Scoop.it

Это сотрудничество поможет «компенсировать те потери, которые Россия может понести в результате конфронтации с Западом».

Западные журналисты не нашли в Новоазовске «призрачную российскую армию» | Global politics | Scoop.it

Mr Tusk goes to Brussels - but can he save the EU? | Global politics | Scoop.it
The first Eastern European EU president, Donald Tusk faces difficult times ahead – and few credentials to suggest he is up to the job...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

I'm afraid he comes rather with a spade to bury the EU. His anti-Russianism won't help, unless he has an epiphany.

NATO summit: Obama, Cameron urge allies to ramp up military spending

NATO summit: Obama, Cameron urge allies to ramp up military spending | Global politics | Scoop.it
Barack Obama and David Cameron will urge NATO members to increase military spending at the alliance’s summit in Wales, amid growing geopolitical tensions, Europe-wide austerity, and criticism that some countries are getting a “free ride”.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Good business for the cannon makers, aka industrial military complex. Apparently the US economy and dominance may only impose domination thoughout making weapons. NATO is a good market, especially now that the US budgets are over the top! Let the stupid Europeans (remember Nuland, but her words are not tolerated by RT) pay for it. They could do as the Ukrainian friens, establish a new military tax... It is a good idea, isn't it?

OpEdNews Article: Article: The West, the greatest cause of War in human history, stands stripped of all Legitimacy | Global politics | Scoop.it
The former Russian provinces, which Soviet party leaders carelessly attached to Ukraine at a time when it seemed to make no difference as all were part of the Soviet Union, are now independent republics with their own governments. The West pretends that this isn't so, because Washington and its puppet capitals don't recognize the independence of formerly captive peoples.

Последний первый звонок: выжившие в Беслане вспоминают три дня между жизнью и смертью

Последний первый звонок: выжившие в Беслане вспоминают три дня между жизнью и смертью | Global politics | Scoop.it
Сегодня Беслан – единственный город в России, где день знаний начинается 5 сентября. Потому что первое число - день скорби. Десять лет назад первый звонок стал последним для 186 учащихся школы №1, ныне превращённой в мемориал. Учительница истории Надежда Гуриева и бывшая ученица школы Зарина рассказали корреспонденту RT Лидии Василевской, что им пришлось пережить в те страшные три дня, когда террористы напали на их мирный город и праздник превратился в ад.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

«Вот как объяснить, что мы тоже были в этой школе, что тоже хоронили своих детей, что тоже получили ранения. А нам писали письма с угрозами. Но я понимаю это, - говорит Надежда. - Всегда хочется найти виновного. Так проще. Кто-то винит себя, а кто-то окружающих. Виноватыми себя тогда чувствовали и те, кто выжил, – потому что не погибли. Родители винили себя за то, что не уберегли детей, не спасли. Я тоже искала виновных. Но здесь так получается: слишком много виновных, начиная с тех, кто разрушил Советский Союз».

​‘Slanderous farce’: N. Korea goes ballistic over UK TV nuclear drama, threatens to cut diplomatic ties

​‘Slanderous farce’: N. Korea goes ballistic over UK TV nuclear drama, threatens to cut diplomatic ties | Global politics | Scoop.it
North Korea has slammed a new British TV drama thriller revolving around its nuclear weapons program, urging the UK government to scrap the "slanderous farce" if it wants to maintain diplomatic ties.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Earlier this year, the publicly-funded BBC apologized to students at the London School of Economics on a tour group to North Korea after it used a student trip as cover to gain access to the secretive communist state to shoot a documentary last year.

‘Can you clone that?’ Putin has close encounter with mammoth Dima in Russia’s Far East

‘Can you clone that?’ Putin has close encounter with mammoth Dima in Russia’s Far East | Global politics | Scoop.it
Upon meeting a 28,000-year-old mammoth mummy in a museum in the Russian Far East, Russian President Vladimir Putin wondered if the preserved soft tissues of the ancient animal could help clone it.

Cloning a mammoth is realistically only a few years away technologically ....should we well that's another debate.

  

Yes, we should. After all we were also responsible for their disappearance. Imagine whales are thoroughly wiped out by human activity, shouldn't we revive them if we had the chance? The high seas would recover their utmost beauty. Likewise Siberian great space with mammoths around. We owe them.

Russia outraged after Kiev accuses Moscow of nuclear attack threats

Russia outraged after Kiev accuses Moscow of nuclear attack threats | Global politics | Scoop.it
Following comments from Ukraine’s Defense Minister Valery Geletey of Moscow threatening with a nuclear attack on its neighbor, Moscow said it was shocked by the statement. Russia warned that such rhetoric only deepens the civil stand-off in Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Ukraine's junta rhetoric is typically fascist, lies, smear, militaristic encadrement... What can the world expect from a bunch of putchists and nazi parties? What is actually outrageous is not their rantings, in agreement with their nature, but the Western credit to such people... The US is using them to its anti-Russian ends and on behalf of its full spectrum dominance. But the EU? Are her politicians in their senses, or have they become so abject that they are unable to rationally balance so much nonsense? Even if Washington's and Kiev's folly is certainly nullifying and ruining Europe?!?

3 days in hell: Russia mourns Beslan school siege victims 10 years on

3 days in hell: Russia mourns Beslan school siege victims 10 years on | Global politics | Scoop.it
September 1 marks 10 years since one of the most horrifying terrorist attacks in Russia, the Beslan school siege which saw over 300 people, 186 of them children, killed. Events to commemorate the massacre are taking place across the country.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

And this is what fanatic religious politics brings about, bloody contempt for human life, cowardly massacre of the innocent, sadistic enjoyment of the suffering of the weak... In a school with hundreds of children, in a packed theatre, in a hospital, in the tube and buses, in the railway stations, and trains, in planes and airports, anywhere. Such are the "heroic" feats of bigotry and the self-righteous. And now add to that the murder of POWs, and civilian populations, especially if they are of another faith. This is the scourge we have been forced to watch and live at the beginning of the 21st century. Shame!

OpEdNews Article: Article: Memorandum For: Angela Merkel: Beware of Fixed Intelligence on Ukraine-- Think WMDs | Global politics | Scoop.it
...accusations of a major Russian "invasion" of Ukraine appear not to be supported by reliable intelligence. Rather, the "intelligence" seems to be of the same dubious, politically "fixed" kind used 12 years ago to "justify" the U.S.-led attack on Iraq. We saw no credible evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq then; we see no credible evidence of a Russian invasion now.
