How many of our banks are real life zombies?

As we travel through the credit crunch era we have the fear that we will repeat the experience of Japan and find ourselves experiencing what has become called the “lost decade” which began in the early 1990s and is still ongoing. We have seen a reminder of that only this morning as the Japanese economy shrunk again (by 1.4% annualised as they measure it) in the last quarter of 2014.This provides the link to today’s topic which is the banks and what we have failed to do. Back in the day when I was knee-high to a grasshopper in financial market terms I worked in Tokyo for a time and continued to work on Japanese issues when I returned to the UK. At that time the health of the Japanese banks was on everyone’s minds and as the Nikkei 225 equity index fell we were told that they were fine at the following levels. It started at 26,000 the 24,000 then 22,000 then 20,000 then 18,000 then 16,000 and so on.

As Russia Bombs Terrorists In Syria, NATO Members Repeat Calls For “No-Fly Zone” and War

By Brandon Turbeville

As both the rhetorical and military situation begins to heat up in Syria, Turkey and the NATO powers appear to be doing everything in their power to launch yet another direct invasion of a sovereign nation. In the shadow of U.S. airstrikes, Turkish shelling of Syrian positions, and the massing of Saudi “troops” and aircraft inside Turkey, the concept of a “No-Fly Zone” is once again being trotted out as a legitimate solution to the Syrian crisis...

Rich Tech Guy Wants ‘Riff Raff’ Off the Streets: “I Shouldn’t Have to See Despair of Homeless”

Is it surprising how out-of-touch the rich are becoming to the problems of the poor, who are sinking further into trouble as millions join their ranks, and a great wealth gap permanently divides the country?:

The city needs to tackle this problem head on, it can no longer ignore it and let people do whatever they want in the city.

The wealthy working people have earned their right to live in the city. They went out, got an education, work hard, and earned it. I shouldn’t have to worry about being accosted. I shouldn’t have to see the pain, struggle, and despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day.

Donald Trump gave this ominous warning to the Bush cabal a few days ago. This is absolutely great stuff. I have been very leery of Trump in the past, given his history of sucking up to Israel and support for some gun control, etc. But over time, with the increasingly fascinating developments and Trump's penchant for truth, I have studied this guy and everything he says very carefully. Anyone of Trump's stature who has the balls to call out Bush on 9/11 is OK in my book. I hereby endorse Donald J. Trump for President. :-)

Trump And Sanders Are Forcing A Debate About The Declining Prospects Of Most Americans.

It's Just a Matter of Time Before This Deepening Economic Decline Crashes Into the 2016 Election
What Trump and Sanders are forcing is a debate about the declining prospects of most Americans.

If this bizarre election year needed one thing twist, it is now likely to play out against a deepening economic crisis. Advantage: Trump and Sanders.

The global economy is weakening, due to a perfect storm of a cratering economy in China, a crash of oil prices, slower growth in the Third World and a realization by central banks that they can't fix what's broken. There is a lot of whistling past the graveyard that the U.S. can somehow continue our (rather tepid) recovery, but in a global economy, no country is an island.

How the South Carolina ‘Firewall’ Fell Apart

For thirty years, the GOP relied on the Palmetto State to weed out insurgents. It was a brilliant strategy—until it collapsed.

The next major Republican primary will take place in South Carolina on February 20. “If you are not ready to play,” Sen. Lindsay Graham told an audience while introducing Jeb Bush at an event in the state this week, “don’t come to South Carolina.”

He was talking about the Republican candidates, of course, but he might as well have been talking about the Grand Old Party itself. Saturday’s South Carolina primary race will be not just a test to see who is the strongest candidate in the pack but also a test of how strong the party establishment still is—or perhaps more accurately, just how weak it has become.

Ever since 1980, and up until 2012, South Carolina had been a Republican “firewall” of sorts—>>>

State: Food industry lobby engaged in 'egregious' money laundering in 2013 vote

The Grocery Manufacturers Association concealed the source of $11 million spent to fight a 2013 ballot initiative, and internal documents reveal how it was done, state Attorney General Bob Ferguson charged in a court motion disclosed Wednesday.

Ferguson is suing the Washington, D.C.-based lobby over a fund it set up to conceal food companies donating to the defeat of Initiative 522. I-522 would have required labeling of all genetically engineered foods and seeds sold in Washington.

"GMA's conduct was so egregious that it ranks among the worst in state history," said the AG's motion for summary judgment.

"GMA worked to 'shield' the actions of major food companies from the very public entitled to know who was trying to influence their vote on Initiative 522."

The initiative was narrowly defeated after a TV ad blitz paid for by millions of dollars from the food industry and such agribusiness giants as Monsanto.

Frustration and Anger as Syria Prevails

Turkish Weekly: As the Syrian army advances on Raqqa and seals off supply routes to the armed gangs inside Aleppo, no surprise that there is another spike in the propaganda war, this time directed against Russia.

Frustration and anger is driving Turkish cross-border shelling of Kurdish and Syrian army positions. Yet in many respects Turkey only has itself to blame. In helping to destroy the authority of the Syrian government, it created a power vacuum that was filled in the north by takfiri armed groups and the Kurds. Had Turkey not joined the effort to destroy the government in Damascus it would not be in this position. It thus therefore shares the responsibility for what it is now calling a threat to Turkey’s security.

They are targeting CIA sponsored operatives inside Syria.

“The Burn Pits” reveals how a Dick Cheney-connected company got rich while U.S. soldiers got poisoned

So what are the “burn pits”? When the U.S. military set up a base in Iraq or Afghanistan, instead of building incinerators to dispose of the thousands of pounds of waste produced each day, they burned the garbage in big holes in the ground. The garbage they constantly burned included “every type of waste imaginable” including “tires, lithium batteries, asbestos insulation, pesticide containers, Styrofoam, metals, paints, plastic, medical waste and even human corpses.”

Here’s where the story gets even more infuriating. As a result of the privatization of many aspects of military operations, the burn pits were operated by Kellogg, Brown, and Root (KBR), a former subsidiary of Halliburton, the company where Dick Cheney was CEO before ascending to the White House. During the Bush administration, Halliburton made nearly $40 billion from lucrative government contracts (despite many corruption scandals), Dick Cheney and his corporate allies got incredibly rich, and the soldiers whose lives have likely been destroyed by this reckless operation… are pretty much screwed.

Hey Trump & Pope Francis, Get This: U.S. Catholic Bishops Official Document States The "Duty of Government Is To Secure One's Border And Enforce The Law For The Sake Of The Common Good."

I must say that as a lifelong practicing Catholic, I am really disappointed and disgusted at what Pope Francis said about Donald Trump, claiming that he's not Christian for wanting to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. That is outrageous and dishonest, especially given the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops own official document on this matter, as well as the official teaching on immigration outlined in the Cathechism of the Catholic Church! In an official August 2013 document, The U.S. Bishops stated, in part, that "The Catholic Catechism instructs the faithful that good government has two duties, both of which must be carried out and neither of which can be ignored... The second duty is to secure one's border and enforce the law for the sake of the common good. Sovereign nations have the right to enforce their laws and all persons must respect the legitimate exercise of this right...

Bush, 9/11, and Iraq: Trump Gets It Right

by Sheldon Richman, February 18, 2016

Donald Trump, for all his obnoxious demagoguery, is adding value to the presidential campaign by calling former President George W. Bush to account for 9/11 and the Iraq war, which set in motion the growth and spread of al-Qaeda and the rise of the Islamic State. Former U.S. rulers rarely face consequences for the horrible things they do in office. Condemnation is considered impolite.

So good for Trump. Unfortunately, he shows no sign of having done his homework; so his charges against Bush are little more than soundbites, allowing Bush defenders to dismiss Trump as a kook. But this time he is not a kook.

Revealed: Clinton is winning the 'secret election' with massive lead in Democratic 'superdelegates' - despite crumbling poll lead and New Hampshire disaster

Bernie Sanders won big in the state of New Hampshire, but Hillary Clinton is still adding to her wide lead in the delegates who will decide the Democratic Party's presidential nominee.

Over the past week, Clinton has picked up the endorsements of 87 more party insiders known as superdelegates, according to a new Associated Press survey. Sanders added just 11 superdelegates.

If these delegates to the party's national convention continue to back Clinton overwhelmingly — and they can change their minds — Sanders would have to win the remaining primaries by a landslide just to catch up. He would have to roll up big margins because every Democratic contest awards delegates in proportion to the vote, so even the loser can get some.

In addition to those people who became Canadian citizens upon the coming into force of the Act (popularly known as the "1947 Act" due to the year it came into force), citizenship afterwards was generally acquired as follows:

- birth in Canada (except where either parent is a representative of a foreign government, their employee, or anyone granted diplomatic privileges or immunities AND neither parent is a citizen or permanent resident)

- naturalization in Canada after five years' residence as a landed immigrant

- grant of citizenship to a foreign woman married to a Canadian man after one year's residence as a landed immigrant

- grant of citizenship to women who lost British subject status prior to 1947 upon marriage to a foreign man or his subsequent naturalization

Locals in Tajikistan are worried about the possible reduction of Russian servicemen in the country, as the Islamic State militant organization grows in strength in neighboring Afghanistan. Tajiks have expressed concern about the possible reduction of servicemen at Russia's 201st base, which is located in Tajikistan, fearing that it could open the way for Islamic State militants to enter the country from neighboring Afghanistan. This contingent is the main stabilizing factor for Dushanbe and if the militants ever invaded Tajikistan, it is likely the country would fall apart.

The Us Economy Has Not Recovered and Will Not Recover

The US economy died when middle class jobs were offshored and when the financial system was deregulated.

Jobs offshoring benefitted Wall Street, corporate executives, and shareholders, because lower labor and compliance costs resulted in higher profits. These profits flowed through to shareholders in the form of capital gains and to executives in the form of “performance bonuses.” Wall Street benefitted from the bull market generated by higher profits.

However, jobs offshoring also offshored US GDP and consumer purchasing power. Despite promises of a “New Economy” and better jobs, the replacement jobs have been increasingly part-time, lowly-paid jobs in domestic services, such as retail clerks, waitresses and bartenders.

The support that Bavaria's Minister-President Horst Seehofer received from business circles during his trip to Moscow last week speaks volumes.

Gernot Erler, a government contracted coordinator for Russian affairs, even accused Seehofer of having "an unquenchable desire for attention."

But they're wrong: as this story shows, the clients frequently manipulate the great powers. The reason is that for the great powers it's a sideshow, for the clients it's the only show... Just because, for example, Ankara is a "client" of Washington, doesn't mean that Ankara always follows the script written in Washington. And we certainly know that Israel and Saudi Arabia have invested a great deal of effort and money to influence, if not altogether create, the script that Washington reads from in the Middle East. The tail often wags the dog; maybe even more often than not.

The Latest From Western MSM: Putin May Justify War on Poland on Behalf of Its 5,000 Lithuanians

Did you know there is a region of Poland that is home to 5,000 Lithuanians? Did you know it's a border region vulnerable to invasion? Well then Putin may very well, certainly, possibly, plausibly, perhaps, maybe, maybe not, use the former to justify the latter. Don't ask us how. Newsweek makes the claim, then takes 1300 words to explain how Lithuanians and Poles do not like each other and how there are some Lithuanians in Poland – but crucialy without explaining how could that possibly benefit Putin and his alleged territorial ambitions. Still, Newsweek suggests, we would do extremely well to monitor the situation there, because you know. Having annexed all those 15 million Russians left outside Russia's 1991 borders Putin is sure to be interested in provoking World War III to be able to annex an obscure Poles-filled mini-region home to precisely zero Russians.

A Gas Station With Nukes? Why UK Fits the Bill Far Better Than Russia

There is currently a heated debate going on in Britain whether the country should renew its trident nuclear missiles. Conservatives claim the modernization will cost no more than £31 billion and insist it should be done. Corbyn's labourites on the other hand want to give them up asserting UK is better off without. Last week US Defense Secretary Ash Carter joined the debate offering that UK should definetely renew its nukes in order to "continue to play that outsized role on the global stage that it does because of its moral standing and its historical standing." Carter couldn't be more right or more wrong. Great Britain is indeed a former global power and its nukes are a reminder of that. However, the truth is also that UK has given up the role of a power long ago and will not recap it either with nukes or without. To be a great power a state must first be an independent power - something that the UK is empathically not...

Aleppo Residents Back Assad: 'We Don’t Need Help From Turkey' (Video)

Aleppo is the biggest Syrian city, the industrial center of the country and a melting pot of ethnicities and religions. Almost 2,5 million people lived there before the war, but now there is hardly a million. The city is divided into two parts, the east and south held by governmental forces, the west and north by jihadists. Life on either side of the ragged boundary can hardly be called normal. The water system hasn’t worked for a long time, the pumping station is broken and cannot be repaired because it is located in ISIS territory. The same is true of electricity: only diesel generators operate. For the locals’ reaction to Erdogan’s promise “to come to their rescue”, watch the video.

Ankara Bombing: A False Flag to Justify Erdogan's Invasion of Syria?

In March 2014 tape recordings of a meeting between the Turkish then Foreign Minister Davutoglu, the chief of the Turkish intelligence MIT Hakan Fidan and others leaked to the public. They talked about a false flag attack on Turkey to be used as a justification form a Turkish attack on Syria. The new was mostly ignored by the "western" main stream media. As I wrote about the tape: The major points from my view: Turkey has delivered 2,000 trucks of weapons and ammunition to the insurgents in Syria. There are plans for false flag attacks on Turkey or Turkish property to justify an attack from Turkey on Syria. The Turkish military has great concerns going into and fighting Syria. The general atmosphere between these deciders is one of indecisiveness. Everyone seems to be unclear what Erdogan wants and is waiting for clear orders from above. Shortly before the meeting the U.S. military presented fresh plans for a no-fly zone over Syria.

Russian Germans ask Aksenov to help them to resettle in Crimea

Russian Germans living in Germany asked the head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov with a request to help them to resettle in the Crimean region of residence, reported RIA Novosti Deputy Prime Minister of the Crimean government Ruslan Balbek. According to him, a letter addressed to the head of the Crimea came from communities of Russian Germans living in Bavaria.

To move mainly want the representatives of the working class, small business owners, electricians, plumbers". Balbek emphasized that in a personal meeting, the German delegation argued the desire to resettle in Crimea on the basis of personal security.

Kurds warn Turkey of ‘big war’ with Russia if invades Syria

Russia has promised to protect Kurdish fighters in Syria in case of a ground offensive by Turkey, a move that would lead to a "big war," the Syrian group's envoy to Moscow said in an interview on Wednesday.

"We take this threat very seriously because the ruling party in Turkey is a party of war," Rodi Osman, head of the Syrian Kurds' newly-opened representative office said in Kurdish via a Russian interpreter. "Russia will respond if there is an invasion. This isn't only about the Kurds, they will defend the territorial sovereignty of Syria."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this information is true, we may be looking at an intense escalation of this war, happening in a heartbeat.

As reported in consortiumnews.com today:

When President Barack Obama took questions from reporters on Tuesday, the one that needed to be asked – but wasn’t – was whether he had forbidden Turkey and Saudi Arabia to invade Syria, because on that question could hinge whether the ugly Syrian civil war could spin off into World War III and possibly a nuclear showdown. If Turkey (with hundreds of thousands of troops massed near the Syrian border) and Saudi Arabia (with its sophisticated air force) follow through on threats and intervene militarily to save their rebel clients, who include Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, from a powerful Russian-backed Syrian government offensive, then Russia will have to decide what to do to protect its 20,000 or so military personnel inside Syria. A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians have warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow is prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save their troops in the face of a Turkish-Saudi onslaught. Since Turkey is a member of NATO, any such conflict could quickly escalate into a full-scale nuclear confrontation. Given Erdogan’s megalomania or mental instability and the aggressiveness and inexperience of Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman (defense minister and son of King Salman), the only person who probably can stop a Turkish-Saudi invasion is President Obama. But I’m told that he has been unwilling to flatly prohibit such an intervention, though he has sought to calm Erdogan down and made clear that the U.S. military would not join the invasion..

However, Obama may not have the luxury of not participating; because Turkey is a NATO member, if it does, in fact, get attacked, the US government would have no choice but to defend it through NATO.

Let us pray that saner, cooler heads will prevail here.

Syria: Army Finds More Proof of Turkey's Aid to Terrorists in Aleppo

Field sources in Masqan village said that the Syrian army's surprise attacks on terrorists' positions in the region made the militants flee the battlefield and facilitated the freedom of Masqan and Ahras villages. They added that the terrorist groups had turned a school in Masqan into their medical center in which a large number of Turkey-made medical packages and drugs were found, a proof of Ankara's logistic support for the militants. The Turkish Army, worried about the imminent collapse of terrorist-held lands in Northern Syria, has sent more military equipment and troops to one of the Turkish border cities near Syria following the recent victories of the Syrian army and Kurdish fighters against the militants in the provinces of Aleppo and Lattakia, Turkish media disclosed on Wednesday.

500 Terrorists Enter Syria via Turkey

"At least 500 militants have crossed the Bab al-Salam border crossing on their way to the town of Azaz to help other terrorists in the face of the gains made by Kurdish forces in the Northern parts of the province," Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, was quoted as saying by Lebanon Debate news website on Thursday. The monitoring base also said on Wednesday that the crossing of terrorists was carried out under the supervision of the Turkish officials. The Wednesday's crossing was the second time a large group of militants have crossed the Turkish border and entered Syria in less than a week. On Sunday, 350 heavily armed terrorists entered Syrian territories via the Atme border crossing with Turkey. A senior political analyst warned on Wednesday that Turkey will officially launch military invasion of Syria if the strategic town of Azaz in the Northern province of Aleppo is won back by the Syrian Kurds.

Operation Barbarossa 2.0: US Military Occupation of Eastern Europe Intensifies, America Threatens to Attack Russia

There is no need to enter once again into the real history of events in Ukraine, Syria, Europe, Asia, Africa and all the places in the world where American and European meddling have wreaked havoc and loosed Chaos with the dogs of war. The history is well known by those who are interested. But there is a need to comprehend the meaning of what the United States is doing by announcing that it will increase its military budget for eastern Europe by 400%, from a current budget of $789 million to $3.4 billion in 2017. Since the Russians are not the threat in the region, but the United States and NATO are, the placement of military hardware to support a full armoured combat brigade in the region, and right on top of Russia’s borders can have only one other purpose, aggression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that won't do just that; and war with Russia certainly falls into this category.

The US economy is contracting, big time, and the offshoring/outsourcing of jobs continues apace. People are living in their cars, if they are lucky, with many more homeless, on the streets, disenfranchised and unempowered.

Those in the bowels of power think a new world war would be a really great thing, because it would distract Americans from their economic misery by attempting to blame that misery on the war.

However, they miss a couple of salient points in their support of this.

First, during World War I and II, neither China nor Russia had the atomic bomb.

Secondly, at this point in their history, the US military does not have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia, and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

It has become painfully clear to me, over the last 20 years, that the US government is pathologically incapable of indulging in good faith negotiations with which to resolve geopolitical disputes, and has simply fallen back on militaristic bullying to get its way.

And We the People have become disposable, and irrelevant to those in power along the way, and that is a really dangerous for a country which is, allegedly, a democratic republic.

Erdogan's son faces prison

The office of public Prosecutor of the Italian city Bologna took a criminal case against Bilal Erdogan. He is suspected of money laundering. President's son moved to Italy last year, ostensibly to obtain a doctoral degree at a University. The police became interested in Bilal Erdogan after the statements of Turkish businessman, by the way, the political opponent of the current President of Turkey. He appealed to Italian authorities to find out the origin of money, which Bilal had brought with him. Similar accusations against Erdogan's Jr. sound not for the first time. Earlier the Turkish Prosecutor's office suspected Bilal in fraud.

Turkish doctors question PM Erdogan’s mental state

‘We are terribly worried, for him, his family and the entire country,’ says Turkish Medical Association.

The Turkish Medical Association announced publicly on Sunday it was worried about the “emotional well-being” of the country’s scandal-ridden Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In a written statement, the association, which includes a majority of the country’s doctors, said Erdogan’s use of “polarizing, excluding and ‘otherifying’ language” suggested the premier was unwell.

The association noted Erdogan’s recent comments about 15-year-old Berkin Elvan, who died last week after a nine-month coma cause by being hit in the head by a tear gas canister shot by a police officer last summer.

False Flag Terror in Ankara: Turkish PM Accuses Syria “Of Being Directly Responsible”, Accuses Russia of Supporting Kurdish YPG against Turkey

On Thursday, Press TV reported Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu accusing Syria “of being directly responsible for” Wednesday’s Ankara blast.

“The premier also accused Russia of using (Kurdish) YPG (fighters) against Turkey,” Press TV added.

Erdogan intends using Wednesday’s incident as justification for continued cross-border shelling – perhaps a ground invasion to follow, a reckless act if launched, risking war with Russia.

Heavy shelling continues for the sixth day, targeting northern Syrian YPG positions, reports indicating government strongholds attacked, trying to slow down steady anti-terrorism advances.

On Thursday, Syrian and YPG forces seized control of Kensaba, the last terrorist stronghold north of Latakia province, along with the Shellef fortress, used by their forces

Retired Lebanese General Amin Hoteit calls Russia’s anti-terrorism campaign a major turning point after nearly five years of war.

Ukraine still considers airspace above Crimea closed — Infrastructure Ministry

Ukraine still believes that airspace above Crimea and territorial waters remain closed for aircraft flights, the Ukrainian Infrastructure Ministry said in a comment on the decision by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). "The EASA conclusion only speaks of routes in airspace above the Black Sea," the statement said. According to the Ukrainian side, the airspace above the peninsula and adjacent water area "remains closed for flights of aircraft." On February 17, EASA reported in a news bulletin that airlines may consider the possibility of flights above separate parts of Crimea, which had earlier been closed. EASA recommended for use two air routes (L851 and M856) above the western part of the Black Sea, proposed by Ukraine in a set of measures to restore the use of air routes in that area.

Cushing Is Denying Storage Requests: Some Troubling Data From Genscape And Goldman

Yesterday, one of the best-known providers of energy market intelligence thanks to its massive private and patented network of land, sea, and satellite monitors, Genscape, held a webinar titled the "Current state of the global oil market" in which it covered all the core aspects that investors in the oil space find concerning, among which the following:

While some the key topics discussed focused on the most followed issue, namely total US supply and commercial oil stocks, which as can be seen are now at a record high and rising...

Further, Genscape adds that when looking specifically at Cushing, the storage facility is virtually operationally full (or at 80%) with just 4-5 more months at current inventory build left until the choke point is breached, and as we have reported previously, storage requests for specific grades being denied however the silver lining is that there is a lot of open pipeline space from Cushing to gulf coast (their full presentation can be watched here).

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

Saudi Arabia does not have a history of dirty tricks, nor a demonstrated ability to carry out such deceptions. More to the point, Saudi Arabia has no motive to attack the United States. The Saudi princes have grown very rich indeed through the Petrodollar arrangement. Saudi Arabia buys many American products and weapons ($61 billion in 2011), and unlike Israel, the American taxpayer does not have to give them the money first with which to buy those weapons. Whereas Israel constantly takes money out of the US, the Saudis pour it in! Private Saudi investment in the US economy is over $400 billion. Saudi Arabia is a major creditor to the US Government. Exact figures are hard to find but Saudi Arabia has loaned the US Government hundreds of billions of dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am gratified that Donald Trump is willing to question the official narrative of 9-11, but alarmed that once again he is displaying a dangerous politically naivete. Donald has fallen for the "we have secret papers that prove Saudi Arabia did 9-11."

Bush had papers he claimed proved Iraq was buying yellow cake uranium.

So I am reposting this article to lay to rest the idea that Saudi Arabia would have been the mastermind behind 9-11. They had nothing to gain and everything to lose!

Russian Foreign Ministry Suggests Plot for New BBC Documentary

Zakharova stated this during a briefing on Thursday afternoon. According to the representative of the Foreign Ministry, the refusal of the British authorities to extradite perpetrators of crimes in Russia does not look favourable on London. "The British side does not trouble themselves with detailed and compelling legal justification for such failure. Only formulaic references to the fact that these people who escaped to the UK, de jure, have a special immigration status or that their issue in Russia will result in the violation of human rights", – said Maria Zakharova. "We are waiting for the plot of the new film," she added. Maria Zakharova also stressed that Britain is harboring fugitives and is sending the wrong signal to other criminals.

Zakharova said this "has nothing in common with the true interests of justice and means that norms of the international law are ignored." "If this was indeed the need to curb the criminal activity, it would be right to send a respective request to Russia, a country whose citizen Vartanyan is." The lawyers of Vartanyan plan to appeal against the decision that will be considered by Norway’s authorities, she said.

Turkey plans another major provocation to invade Syria?

Is there a possibility for a direct military confrontation between Russia and Turkey? What global plans does Turkish President Erdogan harbor? Russia has publicly announced its knowledge of Turkey's plans. The Turkish side said that despite the fact that Russia had all the intelligence information, Turkey will not give up its intentions. In fact, this is a conflict already. Turkey wants to take control of a major channel, a road that was used to supply the terrorist group in Aleppo with weapons and ammo. This will be a ground operation, definitely. Turkey may also want to create a corridor for the Aleppo group to escape to Turkey - they may want to do it to keep the groups of militants that Turkey was maintaining and training for long. Saudi Arabia says that it would send a limited contingent of 2,000 to Syria - this is a very small amount for such military operations.

How Far Will The U.S. Go If Turkey Invades Syria?

Turkey’s leadership, in insisting - in 2011-12 - on sponsoring a proxy war to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has already led to a refugee crisis of irreversible strategic damage to Europe, but Turkish Presisdent Reçep Tayyip Erdogan, the Saudi Arabian military-political leadership, the U.S. Barack Obama administration, and the Qatari Emir now find themselves with nowhere to go except to escalate further in the hope that the Syrian revival, backed by Russia and Iran, will collapse.

In the Milwaukee debate, Hillary Clinton took pride in her role in a recent UN Security Council resolution on a Syrian ceasefire:

At the core of that resolution is an agreement I negotiated in June of 2012 in Geneva, which set forth a cease-fire and moving toward a political resolution, trying to bring the parties at stake in Syria together.

This is the kind of compulsive misrepresentation that makes Clinton unfit to be President. Clinton's role in Syria has been to help instigate and prolong the Syrian bloodbath, not to bring it to a close.
