Putin Sends His 'Leopard' to the Battlefield of Eastern Ukraine

Putin Sends His 'Leopard' to the Battlefield of Eastern Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
Sophisticated Russian weapons have been spotted near Donetsk, signaling a dangerous new phase in the conflict may be underway.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 The developments in Ukraine are certainly worrying, but we should see both sides of the coin, as the German FM has done by warning BOTH Russia and Ukraine of massing weapons and troops on both sides of the Donbass border. Now why is Russia dispatching these toys to its "proxies"? The OSCE Mission has pointed at Ukraine shelling Donetsk and Lugansk in violation of the Minsk agreement, and HRW has unambiguously denounced Ukraine for crimes against humanity as forbidden weapons have been used by the Kiev regime and hideous crimes perpetrated (phosphorous attacks, cluster bombs, mass rapes and mass graves). In the face of all this, Russia's response is very soft indeed, almost just a warning display, the US for far less than that bombed and destroyed whole countries (Serbia, Libya...).

Petrodollar Panic? China Signs Currency Swap Deal With Qatar & Canada | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
The march of global de-dollarization continues. In the last few days, China has signed direct currency agreements with Canada becoming North America's first offshore RMB hub, which CBC reports analysts suggest "could double maybe even triple the level of Canadian trade between Canada and China," impacting the need for Dollars.But that is not the week's biggest Petrodollar precariousness news, as The Examiner reports, a new chink in the petrodollar system was forged as China signed an agreement with Qatar to begin direct currency swaps between the two nations using the Yuan, and establishing the foundation for new direct trade with the OPEC nation in the very heart of the petrodollar system. As Simon Black warns, "It’s happening... with increasing speed and frequency."

Coalition Divided Over Goals

Coalition Divided Over Goals | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Reacting to the proposed creation of an Iraqi-Syrian Sunnistan, the secretary general of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah took the Ashura opportunity to denounce Saudi Arabian responsibility for the development of Takfirism [7]. In doing so, for the first time, he designated Wahhabism as a template for a project turned against Islam; which is like saying that Wahhabism is not a branch of Islam, but a heresy that is harming all Muslims.

OpEdNews Article: Article: Unpopular US President Praises Vets Who Participated in Indefensible Genocide | Global politics | Scoop.it
Someday, a hard rain is going to fall on America. As Abraham Lincoln once said, "You can fool all the people part of the time, or you can fool some people all the time, but you cannot fool all people all the time." In a world in which information-communication technology is raising forward, the number of people you can't fool all the time is increasing exponentially.

The Age of TV Jokers: Arab Media on The Brink By Ramzy Baroud

Enrique Ferro's insight:

It is not that media in Arab countries has been an example of transparency, equality and democracy - far from it. But, to an extent, there was a media evolution underway, dictated partly by the advent of the Internet and subsequent rise of social media, let alone the heated competition by pan-Arab satellite channels.
