NYT Retracts Russian-Photo Scoop | Consortiumnews | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In the old days of journalism, we used to apply the scrutiny before we published a story on the front page or on any other page, especially if it had implications toward war or peace, whether people would live or die. However, in this case – fitting with the anti-Russian bias that has pervaded the mainstream U.S. press corps – the scrutiny was set aside long enough for this powerful propaganda theme to be put in play and to sweep across the media landscape.

City of Belgrade - NATO Aggression, 1999

City of Belgrade - NATO Aggression, 1999 | Global politics | Scoop.it

During the NATO bombing of Belgrade in 1999 even the targets in the very center of the city were hit, which can be best seen on this map.

During almost three months of bombing, only a few days and nights passed without air-raid alarm.

Putin’s Dilemma

Enrique Ferro's insight:

He knows that the CIA, the US State Department and the US-funded NGOs were directly involved in the coup in Kiev. He knows (from hacked phone messages) that Washington had a hand in picking the junta’s leaders. He knows that the White House and NATO have already undermined the spirit of Friday’s Geneva agreement by threatening to intensify economic sanctions and by planning to move more military assets to the Baltics as well as 10,000 US ground troops to Poland and additional American warships to the Black Sea.” He knows that high-ranking US policymakers have demonized him in the media as the new Hitler, a moniker that is unfailingly affixed to targets of Washington’s aggression. And he knows that the Obama team is loaded with bloodthirsty neocons and recalcitrant Cold Warriors who have never abandoned the idea of splintering Russia into smaller pieces, pilfering its resources, and installing a US puppet in Moscow.

ЕС не сможет надолго запретить импорт газа из России, так как это негативно скажется на экономике. Такой прогноз приводится в аналитическом материале рейтингового агентства Fitch. Ни наращивание собственного производства, ни поставки из Северной Америки не смогут полностью компенсировать отсутствие российского газа, уверены эксперты.

Serbia SOS: Bombing of RTS - Freedom of expression, according to NATO

Serbia SOS: Bombing of RTS - Freedom of expression, according to NATO | Global politics | Scoop.it
On April 23, 1999, at 2:06 a.m. Belgrade time, as NATO was preparing for its 50th anniversary celebration in Washington D.C., two cruise missiles struck the Radio Televizija Srbija (SRT)* [RTS] headquarters in Belgrade. About 150 civilian journalists, producers, technicians and janitors were working the night shift when the missiles hit with what NATO called "surgical precision."

The building's four stories collapsed to the ground, sandwiching offices, television equipment, transmitters and people into a pile of smoldering rubble only 15 feet high.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Kerry’s little moment of candid conversation gives us a clue as to why our foreign policy has suddenly reverted back to its cold war incarnation, and why we’re taking a sudden interest in such previously arcane subjects as the proper status of Transnistria, the legitimacy of South Ossetia’s desire for autonomy, and where Crimea belongs in the vast scheme of things. Now that Al Qaeda’s stock has dropped considerably – and some of their folks have magically morphed into our allies – the search for an appropriately powerful and sinister enemy has settled on our old adversary, Russia.

France 24: Заявление Киева об «освобождении» Святогорска – скорее всего, пиар-ход

France 24: Заявление Киева об «освобождении» Святогорска – скорее всего, пиар-ход | Global politics | Scoop.it
МВД Украины заявило, что силовики «освободили от сепаратистов» город Святогорск. Однако, по мнению корреспондента France 24 Дугласа Герберта, к подобным высказываниям следует относиться «со здоровой долей скептицизма». Как отмечает журналист, неизвестно даже, был ли этот маленький городок с населением 5 тыс. человек под контролем пророссийских сил.
