Two Russian Warships Enter Black Sea Through Bosphorus; Another Docks In Cuba | Zero Hedge

Two Russian Warships Enter Black Sea Through Bosphorus; Another Docks In Cuba | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia may be awaiting a diplomatic resolution of the Ukraine crisis, but we wouldn't hold our breath especially with the deposed president Yanukovich set to conduct a press conference tomorrow from Russia's Rostov-on-Don at 5pm local time, where we hardly anticipate a scaling back of the escalation in what is sure to not be an abdication from power. Instead, Putin continues to prepare for the worst and is openly signalling to the West that if he has to fight to regain influence in the Ukraine, he will, as a top Kremlin politician warned last week. As such it was not surprising to read that two Russian warships, the Minsk and the Kaliningrad which last week were sent out on deployment around Syria, crossed back into the Black Sea, most likely in direction Sevastopol, as the build up of Russian forces in the Crimea continues.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Why is Russia planting a spy ship in the US backyard? It might have something to do with John Kerry's earlier admonition that the US is now behaving like a "poor nation" - maybe Russia decided to test just how poor?

Turkish Prime Minister targeted in second audio tape

Turkish Prime Minister targeted in second audio tape | Global politics | Scoop.it
By Humeyra Pamuk ANKARA (Reuters) - A second audio recording, presented as the voice of Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan asking his son not to accept an amount of money on offer in a business deal but to hold out for more, was published on YouTube by an anonymous poster using a pseudonym on Wednesday. An accompanying text within the YouTube clip says the reference is to Sitki Ayan, the chairman of Istanbul-based company Turang Transit Tasimacilik.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Erdogan's fall will signal another one in disgrace who predicted Assad's swift end. But Bashar is directed to finish his presidential mandate and even to be re-elected!!!

New killings spark protests in Libya's Benghazi

New killings spark protests in Libya's Benghazi | Global politics | Scoop.it
The killings of two policemen in Libya's second city Benghazi on Wednesday sparked protests by angry residents who blocked roads and burned tyres. The fatal shootings of the two officers -- one serving, one retired -- came just a day after the UN mission in Libya voiced "deep concern" over the near-daily violence plaguing the North African country, particularly the east. Benghazi, cradle of the 2011 uprising that toppled veteran Libyan dictator Moamer Kadhafi, has seen near-daily attacks on security and other targets in recent months as the weak central government has tried to rein in former rebel brigades turned militias. On Tuesday, the UN Support Mission in Libya called on authorities to make every effort to rein in the rampant violence, which has hit not only security personnel, but also civilians, including foreigners.

News, analysis and commentary from the black left.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Barack Obama has succeeded in expanding America’s influence in ways that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney could only dream about. The neo-conservative project for a new American century has reached full fruition under a Democratic president, who now has many notches on his gun. He and the rest of the NATO leaders began the trail of destruction with Libya, tearing that country asunder under the guise of saving it.

Paul Craig Roberts: Ukrainian Neo-Nazis Declare that Power Comes Out of the Barrels of their Guns

Enrique Ferro's insight:


Ukraine is out of control. This is what happens when an arrogant, but stupid, Assistant Secretary of State (Victoria Nuland) plots with an equally arrogant and stupid US ambassador (Pyatt) to put their candidates in power once their coup against the elected president succeeds. The ignorant and deluded who deny any such plotting occurred can listen to the conversation between Nuland and Pyatt here:

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Le texte, publié sur des forums takfiristes et portant le cachet de l'EIIL, stipule que les chrétiens doivent verser une taxe. Les chrétiens fortunés doivent payer jusqu'à l'équivalent de 13 grammes d'or pur, ceux de la classe moyenne devront verser la moitié de cette somme et les défavorisés le quart.

Cheering a ‘Democratic’ Coup in Ukraine | Consortiumnews | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

There has been, of course, a long and inglorious history of the U.S. government supporting the overthrow of elected governments: Mossadegh in Iran in 1953, Arbenz in Guatemala in 1954, Allende in Chile in 1973, Aristide in Haiti twice, Chavez in Venezuela briefly in 2002, Zelaya in Honduras in 2009, Morsi in Egypt in 2013, and others. After Yanukovych, the next target of these U.S.-embraced “democratic” coups looks to be Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela.

Voice of Palestine (February 27th, 2014) » The Voice of Palestine

Voice of Palestine (February 27th, 2014) » The Voice of Palestine | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 

 

This week Voice of Palestine interviews Israeli-Russian director Lia Tarachansky about her documentary "On the Side of the Road", which opened the groundbreaking First International Film Festival on Nakba and Return at Cinematheque Tel Aviv and will be showing next week at the Franco-German Cultural Center in Ramallah. The info on the documentary’s official trailer says – “This is the story of those who fought to erase Palestine and created an Israeli landscape of denial”. Lia is also a correspondent with The Real News Network and we talk with her about her film work, her journalistic activities as well as the personal and political journey that brought her to where she is today. Our final music is by Jewish-American folk singer David Rovics, The Key, and we dedicate it to the Palestinian diaspora as they carry on the struggle for human and national rights.
