Article: Vladimir Putin: Neither a Monster Nor a Messiah

Article: Vladimir Putin:  Neither a Monster Nor a Messiah | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Vladimir Putin: Neither a Monster Nor a Messiah - I have debunked a number of myths propagated by the western mainstream media that portray Putin as some archetypal monster-villain. But in my perusal of a wide range of alternative media sites and their comments sections, I have observed another trend: a segment of people who are viewing Putin as some kind of Messiah figure. Just like the demonizers, some of these people lack nuance and complexity in their analysis of Putin.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Putin is, first and foremost, a Russian patriot and pragmatist who's top priorities are the security and stability of Russia as well as improving Russians' living standards. Anyone who has an understanding of Russian geography and history immediately comprehends these priorities and why they resonate with the Russian people, who overwhelmingly believe that Putin is a good leader, whatever his flaws admittedly may be.

Putin wants to stop Washington's regime change madness in Ukraine and the Middle East because it is seriously destabilizing an area that is in Russia's backyard and, if left unchecked, has the potential to destabilize Russia directly in the future. To the extent that Putin's policies countering the Washington empire may lead to a more peaceful and stable world in the future, it is an ancillary benefit and not necessarily Putin's primary goal.

Putin believes that a multi-polar world with more equitable development and decision-making will provide the conditions in which his three priorities for Russia have the best chance of being fulfilled.

Isis 'ran sophisticated immigration operation' on Turkey-Syria border

Isis 'ran sophisticated immigration operation' on Turkey-Syria border | Global politics | Scoop.it
Exclusive: Passenger manifests seized by Kurdish forces at Tel Abyad have same stamp marks as other Isis documents the Guardian has been able to verify
Enrique Ferro's insight:

One manifest shows a group of five male and female Tunisians aged 23-36 entering the area. They are registered as coming from Kairouan, a city south of the Tunisian capital, Tunis, known to be a hotbed of radicalism. Kairouan is where gunman Seifeddine Rezgui, who massacred 30 British tourists on a Sousse beach in June, was studying.

Tunisia is the biggest source of foreign fighters entering Syria. In October, the Tunisian government estimated that 6,000 fighters had left Tunisia headed for the conflict.

I sensed that she changed the tone (of her voice). But she also said that she would contact the police”, he tells Nyheter Idag.

Erdogan Taken to Court for Having Golden Toilet Bowls

Erdogan Taken to Court for Having Golden Toilet Bowls | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Ankara's autocrat is bound to ignore court's proceedings and anything which could cost him a penny. He is as greedy as a new richman can be, he was humble at birth but then he couldn't manage his increasing richness, and he has become a scourge to the Turkish people, as his greed took him to criminal dealings with Daesh and finally to shoot down a Russian warplane in order to keep his flourishing illegal oil business, but he failed squarely, and the Turks are losing their Russian economics.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Reporting about starving residents, they forgot to mention that the residents are starving due to 600 fighters of Ahrar ash-Sham, Jabhat al-Nusra and Free Syrian army entrenched in the city, who made the residents a bargaining chip in their negotiations with the government, hiding behind them as a human shield.

A viral photo depicting a "malnourished Syrian child" being "starved" by the "evil Syrian army" is a bona fide fraud. The details, via Lebanon's Daily Star ('Starving Syria child' revealed as south Lebanon girl): The family of a south Lebanon...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 This propaganda has really gone too far. Is anyone still buying this nonsense? If NATO has their way in Syria children will suffer even worse fates than starvation. For a hint of what they have in mind just look at what they're doing to Libya:

Much of Sirte's population of 300,000 either succumbed to genocide or fled during and after the violent 2011 coup and NATO bombardment in Libya (told fully in horrific detail for the first time here). By mid-2012, about 70% of the population had returned to Sirte, then spent three years attempting to rebuild until, in February 2015, 'ISIS' terrorists appeared out of nowhere - in a fleet of brand, spanking new Toyota pick-ups - and commenced a siege of the city.

why is USA so hateful to Russia
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"why is USA so hateful to Russia". 'Easy', or not quite: the US cannot tolerate to lose its "sole global superpower" status. And so it has conspired and conspires against all and sundry who challenges it. And Russia is the main power which can deny that US unique status, and even rally others like China, the Brics, in Latin America, and the Middle East. After the Soviet collapse, the US feeds from the Roman dictum, "Moscow has to be destroyed"! ("Delenda est Carthago"!)
