BREAKING NEWS: North Korea carries out a non-nuclear missile test says Pentagon - but it fails AGAIN

A US official said the missile blew up over land before it ever reached its target of the the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea. It landed around 35 miles kilometers from Pukchang airfield, CNN reports.

A US government source told Reuters the test-fire had failed.

The missile, thought to be a mid-range KN-17 ballistic missile, was fired from a location in the South Pyeongan province in the early hours of Saturday morning local time, according to South Korea's military chiefs of staff said, the BBC reports.

So far, there has been no comment on the failed test-fire from North Korea.

Alan Dershowitz, used to be my arch detractor. He chased, harassed and intimidated professors who endorsed my work. He campaigned against venues that hosted my music. Not that long ago Dershowitz saw me as Israel’s most dangerous enemy. He even, at one stage, complained about my "obscure" sax playing.

He did it all in vain. Dershowitz has been bitterly defeated on each and every battle he picked against me. Not a single scholar surrendered to his pressure, not even one withdrew his or her endorsement of my work. They practically just laughed to his face. Not a single institution bowed to his pressure either as he himself admits. Dershowitz has now learned the lesson. The ethnic cleanser enthusiast has raised a white flag.

REPORTS: US TROOPS DEPLOY ALONG SYRIA-TURKISH BORDER

U.S. armored vehicles are deploying in areas in northern Syria along the tense border with Turkey, a few days after a Turkish airstrike that killed 20 U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters, a Syrian war monitor and Kurdish activists said Friday.

Footage posted by Syrian activists online showed a convoy of U.S. armored vehicles driving on a rural road in the village of Darbasiyah, a few hundred meters from the Turkish border. Clashes in the area were reported between Turkish and Kurdish forces Wednesday a day after the Turkish airstrike which also destroyed a Kurdish command headquarters.

When 'Sunshine' Ruled on the Korean Peninsula

Before South Korea’s conservative presidents severed ties with North Korea from 2008, their liberal predecessors Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-hyun promoted peaceful engagement and rapprochement, an approach called the “sunshine policy.”

The name stemmed from an ancient Greek fable where the wind and the sun competed to remove a man’s cloak. No matter how strongly the wind blew, the man only wrapped his cloak more tightly to keep warm. But when the sun shone, the warmth made him take his cloak off. The wind symbolized unsuccessful coercive policies toward North Korea and the sun stood for an approach able to persuade North Korea to take off its anachronistic and uncomfortable cloak, changing at last.

Russia says strike on North Korea ‘completely unacceptable’

Moscow tells UN Security Council meeting that any military action to address nuclear proliferation by Pyongyang could have catastrophic consequences.

Russia on Friday warned at the United Nations that military options to address the threat from North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic programs were “completely unacceptable” and would have “catastrophic consequences.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told the Security Council that China’s proposals to restart talks with North Korea should be seriously examined and that sanctions alone would not work.

North Korea “is conducting itself in an inappropriate way,” Gatilov told the council. “At the same time, options of using force are completely unacceptable and could lead to catastrophic consequences.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported by reuters this morning:

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned on Friday that failure to curb North Korea's nuclear and missile abilities could lead to 'catastrophic consequences,' while China and Russia cautioned Washington against threatening military force to solve the problem. While Washington has pressed Beijing to rein in its ally Pyongyang, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told the U.N. Security Council that "the key to solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula does not lie in the hands of the Chinese side." Tillerson urged the 15-member body to act before North Korea does and called on states to sever diplomatic and financial ties with Pyongyang. He said that because China accounted for 90 percent of North Korean trade, its role was particularly important. "Failing to act now on the most pressing security issue in the world may bring catastrophic consequences," Tillerson said in his first remarks to the council as secretary of state. The United States was not pushing for regime change and preferred a negotiated solution, but Pyongyang, for its own sake, should dismantle its nuclear and missile programs, he said. "The threat of a nuclear attack on Seoul, or Tokyo, is real, and it's only a matter of time before North Korea develops the capability to strike the U.S. mainland," Tillerson said. While Tillerson repeated the Trump administration's position that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its nuclear and missile development, Yi said military threats would not help.

The question is, with the South Korean elections just a little over a week away, and one of the front-runners being an avowed advocate of the "Sunshine Policy", which promotes engagement with North Korea, just how long will the US give the UN Security Council to vote for these sanctions they are demanding, with a sure and certain knowledge that Russia and China will either abstain, or vote no?!?

The Security Council process can be glacial.

Trump's demand Seoul pay for THAAD will test ties as Moon presidency looms

The remarks come as South Korea heads into a presidential election that will likely elect liberal front-runner Moon Jae-in, who has said the next administration in Seoul should have the final say on the deployment of THAAD. Moon's campaign office said the deployment of THAAD should be immediately suspended until then.

"This almost certainly will become another self-inflicted wound for the alliance and for U.S. foreign policy," said Daniel Pinkston, a Troy University professor and expert on North and South Korea based in Seoul.

Moon, who said in a book published in January that South Korea should learn to "say no to Americans", is leading polls by a wide margin ahead of South Korea's May 9 election to replace impeached former President Park Geun-hye, whose government agreed with Washington last year to deploy THAAD.

Sec. Tillerson to UN Security Council: ‘Act Before North Korea Does’

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Friday for tougher sanctions — aimed mainly at China and other countries that continue to trade with North Korea — as a way to pressure Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear program.

Tillerson, who chaired a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council, said the U.S. prefers a diplomatic solution. However, he stressed the U.S. reserves the option of military action to counteract North Korean aggression if necessary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


The body language tells a lot. Tillerson isn't doing any better here than he was with the meeting with the Senators!

Tillerson made two statements I wish to respond to.

Tillerson claimed that North Korea is pushing the world towards conflict. How many nations as the United States attacked in the last 16 years? Same question for North Korea.

2. Tillerson claims North Korea doe snot need nuclear weapons. Again, how many nations as the United States attacked in the last 16 years? How many of them had nuclear weapons with which to deter attack?

Fox News Poll: 53 percent favor military action to stop North Korea nukes program

It will take military force to stop North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, a majority of voters believe -- and they tend to favor the U.S. taking that action.

That’s according to the latest national Fox News Poll of registered voters.

Fifty-one percent say that U.S. military action will be required to keep the rogue nation from continuing its nuclear weapons program, while 36 percent think diplomacy alone can stop it.

By a 53-39 percent margin, voters favor the U.S. using military force to keep North Korea from making further advancements on nukes.

9/11 Destroyed America Conspiracy Buzz — Paul Craig Roberts

In America, telling the truth has become more dangerous than ever … even deadly to one’s career. “It comes at a high cost that hardly any can afford.” Why have we allowed a tiny handful of neoconservatives to destroy multiple Middle Eastern countries, along with whatever civil liberties we once had in America? Neoconservatives are a tiny number of people. No more than a dozen are of any consequence. Yet they have used America to murder millions. And now they are fomenting war with Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. The world would never survive such a war. Are Americans so insouciant that they will stand aside while a dozen neoconservatives destroy the world?

Mounting Incitements to War With Russia

Nation contributing editor Stephen F. Cohen and John Batchelor continue their weekly discussions of the new US-Russian Cold War. (Previous installments, now in their fourth year, are at TheNation.com). This installment expands upon last week’s, which focused on several highly questionable Washington narratives that imply the necessity of war with Russia. When later asked which of these allegations was the most dangerous, Cohen responds, in this installment, that their number is increasing and with them the risk of war. He itemizes the Cold War narratives, or allegations, now propounded by the US political-media establishment:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "blame Russia for everything not going right for American geopolitics" is both disingenuous in the extreme, and completely, utterly wrong.

But just because something is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do, unfortunately, is utterly no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

And a war with Russia right now would be idiotically suicidal for the American government to do, and I say this as someone who cares very much about the future of her country.

The reasons are painfully obvious; right now, the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

And secondly, Americans have become very war-weary, and war-skeptical, in evaluating the horrific messes the US military has left in places like Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; and Libya.

And that fact that Americans understand, incontrovertibly, that they were lied to in order to start the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, means that they can never, ever trust anything agents of the US government say ever again.

So to all those who seem to have gone foaming-at-the-mouth, barking-dog mad, in terms of both government officials and their presstitutes, attempting to "sell" your Russophobia, a word, please; you have utterly flushed your credibility with your lies, and have therefore become completely irrelevant in terms of moving the American geopolitical process forward.

The reality, not so much. Locals report that the MOAB did way less damage than you’d think, noting that there were green trees still standing 100 meters from the center of the blast, with no sign of damage, and that the tunnels the ISIS fighters were within appear all but untouched.

Bulgarian Weapons Sent to Terrorists in Syria Through Saudi Arabia

The Bulgarian newspaper “Trud” published a report on April 21, 2017 about an investigation into the supply of Bulgarian weapons to the terrorists in Syria, shipped through Saudi Arabia.

In early April, ship so called “Marianne Danica” arrived the biggest port of Saudi Arabia in Jeddah under the flag of Denmark, after it left the port of Burgas on March 28th, loaded with tons of weapons.

According to the newspaper, the ship was listed as transporting dangerous cargo – “Hazard A” (Major), which refers to the transport of explosives and weapons. After 8 hours dangerous cargo is unloaded at the port of Jeddah and the ship sails back to Bourgas. The weapons were not intended for Saudi Arabia, as Saudi army are only equipped almost exclusively with US and UK weaponry.

FORMERLY IMPRISONED JOURNALIST BARRETT BROWN TAKEN BACK INTO CUSTODY BEFORE PBS INTERVIEW

AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST Barrett Brown was re-arrested and taken into custody Thursday, the day before he was scheduled to be interviewed for a PBS documentary.

Brown quickly became a symbol of the attack on press freedom after he was arrested in 2012 for reporting he did on the hacked emails of intelligence-contracting firms. Brown wrote about hacked emails that showed the firm Stratfor spying on activists on behalf of corporations. Brown also helped uncover a proposal by intelligence contractors to hack and smear WikiLeaks defenders and progressive activists.

Faced with the possibility of 100 years in prison, Brown pleaded guilty in 2014 to two charges related to obstruction of justice and threatening an FBI agent, and was sentenced to five years and 3 months. In 2016, Brown won a National Magazine Award for his scathing and often hilarious columns in The Intercept, which focused on his life in prison. He was released in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an absolute moral outrage, and I hope that the intercept keeps the unblinking eye of the net on this case until Brown is released.

IF the Federal BOP actually HAS a policy on interviews, post-incarceration, I was certainly unable to find it on the web; and I am not precisely a slouch at research.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsTillerson: US Won’t Attack North Korea So Long as Threat ‘Manageable’

After weeks of speculation that a US attack on North Korea could be imminent, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who played a substantial role in the rhetoric that fueled that belief, sought to play down the idea of an immediate attack, saying that the US is willing to be patient and will not strike so long as the threat is considered “manageable.”

This is in stark contrast to official statements in the past month, with Tillerson having declared diplomacy to have failed, and Vice President Mike Pence having declared the era of patience “over” weeks ago. The US continues to add warships, and anti-missile systems to the theater of operations too, with the Pentagon having just warned Congress of the potential for large-scale consequences for a new Korean War.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary of State Tillerson, a word, please: what does "manageable" even mean in the context of North Korea?!?

I don't think that Tillerson's comments, coupled with the statements of Pacific Commander Admiral Harry Harris on this issue, are any kind of "deliberate ambiguity"; I think this sharp, and painfully clear, difference of opinion on the path forward, demonstrates a very schizophrenic split in the American Deep State as to how to go about getting North Korea to do what the US government wants it do do.

And that is a very dangerous state of affairs for American foreign policy toward North Korea.

Sanctions War: Russia Loses $50Bln, West Loses $100Bln

Western countries have lost over $100 billion over three years from the sanctions applied against Russia over the Ukrainian crisis, compared with up to $55 billion lost by Russia, UN Special Rapporteur on the negative impact of the unilateral coercive measures Idriss Jazairy said Friday.

"The sanctioning countries lose more income from sanctions than the targeted country over $100 against $50-$55 billion. The loss of income of Russia from the sanctions, a very rough rule of thumb to apply would be to say that the GDP of Russia has lost about 1 percent as a result of sanctions. Since the GDP of Russia is about $1.7 trillion, the GDP loss of income over three years is about between $50-$55 billion," Jazairy said during a press conference.

Report: Deaths of Afghan Women up 54% Over Previous Year

The latest UN report on civilian deaths in Afghanistan showed a dramatic 54% increase in the number of women killed in the first quarter of 2017 over the same period in the previous year, alongside a 17% rise in the number of children killed. The deaths cover “conflict-related” fatalities.

Women and children are both are growing amount of the overall casualties of the Afghan War, and the UN expressed particular concern about the lack of effort to ensure protection for civilians among the various combatants, given that “fighting season” is fast approaching.

With little infrastructure,, Afghanistan’s war tends to quiet down somewhat during the winter, with a lot of areas of the country impassable. This tends to lead to a “spring offensive” which marks the official start of fighting season after the thaw, with casualties rising significantly nationwide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The spring battles will most likely see an uptick in the deaths of women and children.

IF the NATO high command and the US government and military had a brain cell to rub together between them, they would bring their troops out of that accursed country as quickly as safely possible, then negotiate with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the oil pipeline and mineral rights.

Of course, THAT...would be logical.

Montenegro’s parliament has formally agreed for the country to join NATO – the military bloc that pounded the tiny Balkan country with bombs less than 20 years ago during the Kosovo War. The decision sparked protest among the population and opposition figures.

On Friday, Montenegrin MPs voted 46-0 to become the 29th member of NATO.

Opposition lawmakers boycotted the parliamentary session, while hundreds of protesters gathered outside the parliament building before the vote to express their discontent with the idea of Montenegro joining the alliance.

‘Lacklustre Campaign’ Sees Macron Falling in Polls

Polls in the French presidential race are tightening as Emmanuel Macron’s campaign gets off to a lacklustre start and more voters come out in support of Marine Le Pen.
According to a new poll from Opinionway-Orpi released Thursday, the gap is narrowing between pro-globalist presidential candidate Macron and rival Le Pen, with Macron losing two percentage points in just two days, L’Express reports.

Macron dropped below 60 per cent to 59 per cent, with Le Pen at 41 per cent. The survey was carried out multiple times since February and Le Pen has only crossed the symbolic 40 per cent mark twice.

In the first polling after they had made it through to the second round, the En Marche! candidate had polled at 65 per cent of voting intentions, compared with 35 per cent for Le Pen.

Amazon wants to watch you get dressed: New “Echo Look” camera to spy on you in your own bedroom and bathroom

Now, Amazon apparently believes ignorant consumers desire to exist in an Orwellian, totalitarian society where dangerous corporations run cameras that watch them poop, pee, sing horribly, have kinky gay sex, cross dress, snort lines of coke, masturbate or whatever else twisted people do in the privacy of their homes. Don’t get me wrong on all this, by the way: As far as I’m concerned, you are free to do whatever you want in your own bathroom… but if you are stupid enough to install an Amazon.com camera that watches you do all these things, you are just begging to have all your surreptitious photos and videos blasted all across the ‘net following an Amazon.com server hack.

The Rise of the Generals

Has President Donald Trump outsourced foreign policy to the generals?

So it would seem. Candidate Trump held out his hand to Vladimir Putin. He rejected further U.S. intervention in Syria other than to smash ISIS.

He spoke of getting out and staying out of the misbegotten Middle East wars into which Presidents Bush II and Obama had plunged the country.

President Trump’s seeming renunciation of an anti-interventionist foreign policy is the great surprise of the first 100 days, and the most ominous. For any new war could vitiate the Trump mandate and consume his presidency.

Israel and ISIS Are Allies. There. We Said It.

In the midst of complaining about the Islamist threat to Israel and the world, Bibi Netanyahu conveniently forgets that his own country enjoys a tacit alliance with the Islamic State (IS) in Syria.

It is an alliance of convenience to be sure and one that’s not boasted about by either party. But is not terribly different from one that Israel enjoys with its other Muslim allies like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.

The Russians need to tip the balance soon.

Russia, Japan call for resumption of talks on Korean settlement

Leaders of Russia and Japan have called for an urgent resumption of multi-party talks to find a solution to the current crisis in the Korean Peninsula.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday that they were seeking de-escalation in the Korean conflict, admitting that the situation had seriously deteriorated over the past weeks.

Putin urged all sides of the crisis to refrain from any provocation that could further deteriorate the situation. He also said the surge in hostilities had made it necessary for all stakeholders to embark on renewed efforts to find a solution to the conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin and Abe are behaving like the adults in the room right now.

However, that being said, I cannot imagine on what the Vegas odds are of talks restarting at this moment in time.

Last month, Secretary of State Tillerson rejected talks with North Korea until they stop their nuclear weapons program, which is absolutely a non-starter for North Korea, because such weapons have been developed as a deterrent to an American strike against it.

Rex Tillerson Rejects Talks With North Korea on Nuclear Program

The 9th of May, the date when South Korea holds its elections, is coming up quickly; it's one week from this Tuesday.

IF, in fact, the US is going to engineer a false flag to blame against North Korea as the "justification" for an attack against it, they are going to have to do it very, very soon, unless the US government is determined to bend the South Korean election results to its liking; and it appears that this is very much the case.

Because all of a sudden, out of no where, we have a "dark horse" candidate, Ahn Cheol-soo, who is "surging" in the polls. As reported at the New York Times on 14 April, 2017:

Mr. Ahn, a boyish former medical doctor and relative neophyte in politics, calls himself a champion of “new politics” who would heal a country disillusioned with what he describes as a corrupt and out-of-touch elite. But his detractors call him a “stooge” for old politics, beholden to conservative allies of former President Park Geun-hye, whose impeachment and ouster last month led to the election. Polling experts say that Mr. Ahn owed his recent popularity to people who shunned conservative candidates after Ms. Park’s corruption scandal but did not trust Mr. Moon either, especially in dealing with North Korea’s advancing military abilities. Mr. Ahn has wooed those people by attacking Ms. Park’s government while promising to honor its decision to allow the United States to deploy an advanced missile defense system in the country against the North, a decision that has infuriated China.

So, if this guy is able to pull off a "come from behind" win (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) the US will have a little more latitude in terms of timing on a military campaign, or taking other steps, against North Korea.

Rigging foreign elections is nothing new to the American deep state.

So the question becomes, will the American deep state take the chance that this man can actually win the South Korean election, or will the possibility he may not be able to, drive them to a pre-emptive strike?!?

We'll know very soon, I predict.

Dismantling the distortion about Israel

What are the 10 myths? Pappe divides the book into three sections: “Fallacies of the Past,” “Fallacies of the Present” and “Looking Ahead.” The six myths of the past include the well-known saying, “a land without a people for a people without a land,” the conflation of Zionism and Judaism, Zionism as a national liberation movement and the alleged voluntary flight of Palestinians during the 1948 war.

The three myths of the present era are the claim that Israel is a democracy, that the Oslo accords represented a genuine peace process rather than a “ploy to deepen the occupation” and that Israel’s multiple attacks on Gaza were simply acts of self-defense.

Alarming statistics reveal “young strokes” are surging across America

Strokes are occurring more frequently for adults between the ages of 35 and 44. The trend is shocking. Between 2003 and 2012, stroke hospitalizations rose 42 percent for men and 30 percent for women in this young age group. The study, published in JAMA Neurology, gathered hospital billing data and calculated the number of adults under age 65 who were hospitalized for an ischemic stroke from 2003 to 2012. An ischemic stroke occurs when the blood clots and cannot circulate to the brain.

In total, there were at least 30,000 more stroke hospitalizations in 2012 than there were in 2003. Every age group studied is suffering more than ever before. Adults aged 35 to 44 showed the greatest uptick in ischemic stroke and other chronic disease risk factors, including high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes.

Teresa Ann Garin, 51, was charged with three counts of theft by swindle for her role in an elaborate financial scheme that played out between the summer of 2015 and this past winter, according to the criminal complaint filed against her Wednesday in Ramsey County District Court.

Climate change app terrorizes youth with wildly exaggerated sea level projections

Thanks to current technology, you too can experience the so-called “disastrous effects” of climate change wherever you may be. Development studios Strange Flavor and secondverse have collaborated with visual artist Justin Brice Guariglia to create an app, named After Ice, in honor of Earth Day. Utilizing geolocation, augmented reality (AR), and collected NASA predictions, the app will show you how your area will look when affected by global ice melt and rising sea levels. Bubbles and fish will also sometimes swim past, states the DailyMail.co.uk. Yet, taking “the science out of the lab” reveals this: rising sea and ice levels just aren’t happening. After Ice is simply more fear mongering disguised as a “fun” and “educational” app.

ANTIFA AND THE POLICE STATE

As we now know, the FBI is engaged in creating terror plots and using them to frame patsies, amounting to “a form of pre-emptory prosecution where vulnerable individuals are targeted and manipulated not for any criminal acts they have committed but rather for the bad political views they have expressed,” according to Glenn Greenwald.

It’s in the state’s best interest to stir up trouble between the so-called alt-right and its opponents on the left, especially violence-prone groups on its periphery. As the violence escalates, the state will move to further enable law enforcement to go after nonviolent and legitimate protesters and provide a rationalization for further expansion of its high-tech surveillance apparatus.

It took a formal investigation to uncover the dirty secrets of Operation Gladio. If not for activists taking files from a Philadelphia FBI office in 1971, we would not know about COINTELPRO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course; further violence becomes the "justification" for more invasive, and intrusive, surveillance into all our lives, even if we are the polar opposite from violent, as Mike and I are.

In fact, we think that any surveillance on us by any of the "alphabet soup" intelligence agencies is pure punishment duty. :-)

Obama scores another $400K speaking fee amid criticism

Even as President Obama faced criticism for getting $400,000 for a speech to a Wall Street bank, he pocketed the same amount of money for a second speech, The Post has learned.

Obama made another $400,000 on Thursday when he appeared at the A&E Networks advertising upfront at The Pierre Hotel. He was interviewed over 90 minutes at the Midtown Manhattan event by presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin in front of the cable network’s advertisers.

Out of office just 98 days, Obama caught some flack earlier this week when it was learned that he had agreed to speak in September at a health care event sponsored by Wall Street bank Cantor Fitzgerald.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said she was “troubled” by the big-ticket talk.

TRUMP: "I'M A NATIONALIST AND A GLOBALIST"

President Donald Trump was prepared to end the North American Free Trade Agreement deal, which had governed trade relations for the past 23 years, with a dramatic announcement Saturday at a Pennsylvania political rally marking his 100th day in office.

As rumors spread of the possible action, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto called the president urging him not to pull out of the accord. "Let me think about it," Mr. Trump said. Within a half hour a call came in from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with a similar request.

After the talks, Mr. Trump was convinced "they're serious about it and I will negotiate rather than terminate," the president said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

President Trump is neither a nationalist, or a globalist; he is simply a willing puppet for the American Deep State.

TRUMP IS PUPPET OF US ‘DEEP STATE,’ HAS NO ‘OWN’ FOREIGN POLICY – ASSAD

US president Donald Trump is not a truly independent political leader but merely a puppet of US corporations, military and intelligence, and who serves their interests, Syrian President Bashar Assad has told the Latin American TeleSUR TV network.
Trump pursues “no own policies” but only executes the decisions made by the “intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms manufacturers, oil companies, and financial institutions,” the Syrian leader said in an exclusive interview with TeleSUR.

"As we have seen in the past few weeks, he changed his rhetoric completely and subjected himself to the terms of the deep American state, or the deep American regime," Assad added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, al-Assad's assessment is absolutely correct.

Trump wants S. Korea to foot $1bn THAAD bill, Seoul says no

Donald Trump said South Korea should pay for hosting the American THAAD anti-missile system, in line with his general narrative that America’s allies are taking advantage of US protection. Seoul has rejected the idea.

President Trump wants South Korea to pay around $1 billion for the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery, he told Reuters in an exclusive interview.

“I informed South Korea it would be appropriate if they paid. It’s a billion dollar system,” said Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary:

New spin of North Korea-Syria ‘axis of evil’ points to US war

US media reports this week blamed North Korea for having a dastardly role in an alleged chemical weapons massacre in Syria. As if the two countries could not be demonized enough. The latest spin of the “axis of evil” suggests Washington is hell-bent on war.
Demonize, dehumanize, destroy. That’s the logic being throttled by the Trump administration toward both North Korea and Syria. This week war hawk US Senator Lyndsey Graham after a dinner with President Trump referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as a “nutjob,” while Trump earlier labeled Syrian leader Bashar Assad an “animal.”

Now the two “evil dictators” are bonded in US media reports for complicity in the alleged chemical weapons attack earlier this month in Syria’s Idlib Province, where it is claimed Assad’s armed forces dropped toxic munitions on civilians, killing up to 80.

The supplier of the alleged chemical weapons in Syria is the “Kim Jong-un regime” in North Korea, according to US reports.

‘Putin is not Assad’s lawyer, he is advocate of international law’

Russian President Vladimir Putin is not a lawyer of Syrian leader Bashar Assad. Dmitry Peskov, an official spokesman for the Russian president, said that Putin was an "advocate and defender of international law."

It is the principles of international law, rather than interests of individual politicians, that the Russian president defends, Peskov added.

Russia's position in relation to Syria has not changed. According to Peskov, Russia excludes interference of third countries into internal affairs of sovereign states. It is only the people of Syria who can decide the fate of their country, Peskov added.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – APRIL 28, 2017: GOVT FORCES ADVANCE ON MULTIPLE FRONTS

Clashes resumed in Al-Qaboun district in eastern Damascus as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) capture more points from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies. The SAA detected a tunnel connecting many positions of the militants inside the district and destroyed it. Ahrar al-Sham claimed that its members had hit two SAA tanks in Al-Qaboun district.

Pro-militant sources say that opposition forces are in a critical situation in the area after government troops cut off supply lines operated by militants in the area. HTS-led forces suffer from shortages of ammunition and food.

Earlier this week, the SAA launched an operation against ISIS to in the Damascus desert east of the Syrian capital. So far, the SAA has advanced towards the Al-Sham desert around the Tishreen electricity station capturing some 6 kilometers. Pro-government sources report heavy losses among ISIS members.

The senator has thus commented on the statement from first deputy head of the Main Operations Directorate of Russia's General Staff, Gen. Viktor Poznikhir. According to the general, the US missile defense system in Europe creates an opportunity for a sudden nuclear attack on Russia.

According to Klintsevich, the general sent a clear signal to the US leadership and warned the United States any any development of events will not come as a surprise to Russia. "I think that this reminder will not be superfluous. Let them know what we know, so to speak," the senator wrote on his Facebook page.

The French Intelligence Report of April 26, 2017 Contradicts the Allegations in the White House Intelligence Report of April 11, 2017 by Dr. Theodore Postol

Attached below are data derived from the French Intelligence Report published yesterday on April 26, 2017. A reading of the report instantaneously indicates that the French Intelligence Report of April 26, 2017 directly contradicts the White House Intelligence Report of April 11, 2017. The discrepancies between these two reports essentially result in two completely different narratives alleging nerve agent attacks in Syria on April 11, 2017. The fact that these two intelligence reports allege totally different circumstances associated with the same alleged event raises very serious questions that need to be investigated and reported to the American public.
