 The Kerry-Abdullah Secret Deal And An Oil-Gas Pipeline War On Iran, Syria And Russia

Enrique Ferro's insight:

The US-Saudi oil price manipulation is aimed at destabilizing several strong opponents of US globalist policies. Targets include Iran and Syria, both allies of Russia in opposing a US sole Superpower. The principal target, however, is Putin’s Russia, the single greatest threat today to that Superpower hegemony.

Kobané résiste encore | Global politics | Scoop.it
La ville syrienne a population kurde de Kobané (en arabe Aïn al-Arab) est toujours assiégée par l’Émirat islamique (« Daesh ») depuis le 16 septembre 2014. La ville est située à la frontière turque et n’est plus accessible que depuis la Turquie, l’arrière-pays étant occupé par Daesh.

OpEdNews Quicklink: No Thank You For Your Service | Global politics | Scoop.it
A 93-year-old veteran turned away from the polls exemplifies exactly what happens when lawmakers erect more barriers to voting. As the leading democracy of the world, our voting system should be free, fair, and accessible to all eligible Americans -- including of course those who have served to protect us. Instead, unfair voting laws are being passed by politicians like those in Texas who are trying to manipulate the system for their own benefit -- because they are afraid of what the voters have

Rabkor editorial: Economic sanctions have Russia seeking compromise with West over Ukraine

Rabkor editorial: Economic sanctions have Russia seeking compromise with West over Ukraine | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia's liberals are scrambling to reach accomodation with NATO and the West, at nearly any price, including Russian sovereignty.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

For the US and the EU, it is not only important to stop the process of post-Soviet integration that Moscow has initiated, or to block Russia’s territorial, commercial and industrial rebirth. Also vital to the West is to destroy the system of compromises among the major business groups linked to Putin.

"Leave or die."
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The war is going to be in high gear in a few days here. I spent a few days embedded with the Novo Russia military and met with most of the leaders here. Their intel is that Poroshenko is going to attack hard. Ukraine has massed tanks along the south border and at Debalsova and outside Lugansk.

Poland gave Ukraine aircraft to bomb the cities and leaflets are being dropped in Ukrainian controlled cities that read: leave or die.

A senior Dutch prosecutor on the MH17 case told Der Spiegel that instigators were open to the theory that Malaysian flight MH17 was shot down by "another plane." The prosecutor also implied (very strongly) that U.S. and German governments had either not provided key evidence they claim to have or provided evidence that was less than persuasive.
