Film: EXPULSION - Syrian Christians under attack from ISIS/FSA and NATO

Film: EXPULSION - Syrian Christians under attack from ISIS/FSA and NATO | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In 1939 France, as the "mandatory" power in Syria, presented the region of Antiochia to Turkey, so that it didn't rally Nazi germany (now don't ask the fench legitimacy to "give" to third parties territories which didn't belong to it!). Antiochia was an ancient Christian city and land, as old as Christianity itself; a sizable allawite population lived there too. The first effect of such a mindless present was that the Christinas fled en masse and none of them remained there. Did the French care? Not as much as nowadays when they know that the fall of the Syrian Republic would trigger a mass exodus, and not only of Christians but of everybody else, in fear of IS. Apparently, it will not happen, because Putin got in time, and the party is over.

NATO front crumbles: Slovakia welcomes Russian intervention in Syria

NATO front crumbles: Slovakia welcomes Russian intervention in Syria | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Even though the Russians have to speak to the Western maniatic gallery, of course they are supporting Assad, not just the man, but what he respresents, the Syrian Republic, a sovereign secular state which guarantees the equality of gender, the harmony of faiths, the respect of minorities, and which has engaged into a democratic reform, with a multi-party parliament and presidential elections, evenif not yet perfect as it has been harrassed by imperialism and terrorism.

Ouch, and I like Fico sporting the St George Ribbon, btw.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

An interesting opinion, even though the author stretches himself to a limit to "prove" his views. For instance, he skips the fact that Mongol "tribute" meant slaves, who were of course converted...

The father of the Saudi boy awaiting execution wants you to know one thing

The father of the Saudi boy awaiting execution wants you to know one thing | Global politics | Scoop.it
“I was shocked by his response. How could a 20 year-old boy talk like this?"
Enrique Ferro's insight:

A great contribution to add to the pressure on the barbaric Saudi regime. Apparently Cameron already bowed down to cancel his agreement with the Saudis to operate their prison system (!!!). I don't know Obama. I know he boycotted the Sochi games on behalf of the gay community (all of it was fabrication of course), and a couple of months later went to Ryadh to kiss the despotic king's hand. Apparently nobody told him that in Saudi Arabia gays are flogged and even executed!!!

Enrique Ferro's insight:

It's easy to kill while sitting in an armored helo or while wielding a shovel that's been honed like a razor, but they didn't feel sorry for me; killing for the sake of killing wasn't the deal for them. But they were ready to die if they had to.

And that's when I got it. Russia -- the one enemy most to be feared

The Saudi Roots of ISIS

The Saudi Roots of ISIS | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Why should we be surprised then, that from Prince Bandar's Saudi-Western mandate to manage the insurgency in Syria against President Assad should have emerged a neo-Ikhwan type of violent, fear-inducing vanguard movement: ISIS? And why should we be surprised -- knowing a little about Wahhabism -- that "moderate" insurgents in Syria would become rarer than a mythical unicorn? Why should we have imagined that radical Wahhabism would create moderates? Or why could we imagine that a doctrine of "One leader, One authority, One mosque: submit to it, or be killed" could ever ultimately lead to moderation or tolerance?

Russia, Ukraine, USA: What are the hallmarks of fascism?

Russia, Ukraine, USA: What are the hallmarks of fascism? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The item is exceedingly long, but it starts by a faux pas with a wrong definition. Fascism and right-wing military dictatorships and police regimes are not the same, even though the latter use Fascist methods. Stating an accurate definition is relevant to developping an adequate strategy. The main feature of Fascism is for it to be a mass party, extremely nationalist and chauvinistic, petty-bourgeois, with a racist, anti-Communist and anti-Democratic. partially clerical, ideology. Mussolini had it, so did Hitler, and partially Franco. Nowadays the Kiev junta is based upon a Fascist movement, because the Maidan hordes are a mass movement. Even their coup was a copycat of Mussolini's March on Rome.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

"They are deploying missiles that are very accurate and have very long range to such an extent that their long range aircraft now can now stay within the Russian airspace and fire nuclear warheads against targets and critical infrastructure in Canada, USA and the North-Western Pacific coast. It forces us to catch the arrows instead of trying to shoot the archers".

Medical charity: US tank entered bombed Afghan hospital compound without giving notice | Global politics | Scoop.it
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A medical charity whose hospital in Afghanistan was bombed by the U.S. military says an American tank forced its way onto the compound, contravening agreements they would be informed.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Their unannounced and forced entry damaged property, destroyed potential evidence and caused stress and fear," it said in a statement, adding that an MSF team had arrived at the hospital earlier in the day.

Sociopath Media report - October 14th, 2015

Sociopath Media report - October 14th, 2015 | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The BBC has a recurring series called 'Panorama', where they attempt to reveal something shocking to the public domain. Well, what was revealed here was shocking indeed. 'Ahmed Darwish' has already died before, and came back to life only to be napalmed. That is something that is worthy of a nativity. The ombudsman for television was not impressed with this (or the mass of complaints coming their way). Here is a link explaining what happened:
