Soyuz later! Russia might exit satellite launch business

Russia has dropped a broad hint that it might leave the space launch business to private operators.

Space launches have become a relative commodity: SpaceX publishes a price list offering a Falcon 9 trip to geosynchronous transfer orbit for $62m, or $90m for Falcon Heavy.

Russia's official newsagency TASS carried a report suggesting the country might let the new generation of private launch vehicles have the business to themselves rather than try to build a platform that can compete with SpaceX.

4 Years After Bloody Maidan Slavyansk Heroes Tell Their Story About Rebelion Against Kiev Junta

The oligarch president Poroshenko declares a new stage of this war, a military operation starting on April 30th.

It has been four years since the nationalists in Kiev took power after a coup and started a civil war in Southeastern Ukraine. According to the UN, there have been over 10,000 casualties since then. The number of those injured is much higher. Refugees? In the hundreds of thousands. Right now, the oligarch president Poroshenko declares a new stage of this war, a military operation starting on April 30th. That's Kiev's duplicitous idea of the implementation of the Minsk Treaties. There is no point in arguing with them anymore, all you can do is defend yourself. Here's a report about the heroes of the rebellion against the Kiev junta.

When Zionism Rubs Up Against Reality

Under international law, crimes against humanity include “murder and other inhumane acts carried out against any civilian population… when such acts are done or such persecutions carried on in execution of or in connection with any crime against peace or any war crime.”
A war crime is an act that constitutes a “serious violation of the laws of war that gives rise to individual criminal responsibility and include intentionally killing civilians… destroying civilian property… and serious violations of the principles of distinction and proportionality, such as strategic bombing of civilian populations.”

The U.S. – China Tariff Dispute Is Really About Protecting US Global Corporate Dominance

***
To this point, it is worth emphasizing that no new tariffs have in fact been levied, by either the U.S. or Chinese governments. The first round of announced U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods are still subject to a public comment period before becoming effective, and the content of the second round has yet to be formally decided upon. Thus, both countries have time to back away from their threats.

Also significant is the fact that both countries are being careful about the products they are threatening to tax. For example, the Trump administration has carefully avoided talking about placing tariffs on

US-UK-France Bomb First Ask Questions Later: A Timeline of Events in Syria
***
As the dust settles in Syria after the recent strikes, the investigators of the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are now set to begin their work. The Syrian government, which immediately granted OPCW investigators visas despite U.S. claims to the contrary, has stated that these investigators will be able to move freely, as the area, having been recently secured by the Syrian Arab Army, is now free of armed insurgents. However, concerns have been raised as the OPCW has been influenced by political forces in the past, particularly regarding events in Syria. One of the first sites investigators will visit will be Douma Hospital, where they will likely question the doctors and staff regarding what they saw on April 7, 2018.

In five years, the American debt burden will also be worse than some countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, such as Mozambique or Burundi.

London crossed all red lines accusing Putin of involvement in chemical program

The United Kingdom has crossed all red lines and ovetstepped thresholds of decency by accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of being involved in the military chemical program, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Wednesday at a United Nations Security Council meeting. According to the Russian diplomat, the British side has circulated at the UN Security Council a letter "full of false, ungrounded and slanderous allegations, as usual." "The United Kingdom has dared to speak about our chemical statement in a preemptory manner, to judge the methods of work of our special services. This time, our British colleagues have gone even further: they directly accused President Putin of being involved in the chemical military program," he said. "I don’t know whether London or the UK’s mission here see that you have overstepped the red line and the threshold of decency.

Source warns about possible chemical provocations in Syria

"To stage an offensive on government troops’ positions, Jabhat al-Nusra alone and affiliated units of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have pulled more than 12,000 militants and hundreds of hardware pieces, dozens of multiple missile launcher systems they received via corridors controlled by illegal armed groups along the border with Israel and Jordan," a military diplomatic source said on Thursday, adding that the offensive would be grounded by militants’ statements about alleged ceasefire violations of the Syrian army. "To magnify the effect, it is not ruled out than more provocations with the alleged use of improvised chemical weapons against civilians will follow," the source said. According to the source, the ultimate goal of the operation is to establish an autonomous territorial entity with a capital city in Daraa as is in the case of territories controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces in the northeast of Syria.

Many anti-war activists, even those who are against bombing Syria, have described President Assad's rule as a "dictatorship" and his government as a "regime".

Many are simply aping the mainstream media. The truth is that the president is well-liked by his people.

The operation was carefully orchestrated and methodically planned to lessen chances of civilian casualties, the spokesperson said. The missiles hit targets during the Syrian pre-dawn hours, and planners, weaponeers and aircrew were careful to ensure little collateral damage. “We successfully hit every target,” White said.

Missiles hit three distinct military chemical weapons targets. “The three facilities are – or more appropriately, were – the fundamental components of the regime’s chemical weapons warfare infrastructure,” McKenzie said.

Please forgive the use of bad language to punctuate bad behavior. There is no culture on Earth more evil and Satanic than that of Israel founded on the Nazi formula of Theodor Herzl and financed by the Satanic first family of arch-devils, Rothschild clan. The evil of the AshkeNAZI empire had its origin in the translation of the Ashkenazim into Khazar's. In the 9th century, King Bulan of Khazaria got hoodwinked by a filth peddling Talmudist. The Ashka-nimrods object to this linkage which is all the proof needed that it is so. If they say something is so, it is not and if they say something is not so, it is. This is a good rule of thumb to measure them by and it is always a spiritual affirmation to stick that thumb up your ass for emphasis and their version of an holy oil immersion process.

Challenging Capitalism Through Workers’ Control

A common feature in every crisis situation, from the upheavals of the early 20th century to the neo-liberal re-structurings of the late 20th century, is the emergence of workers’ control – workers organising to take over their workplaces in order to defend their jobs and their communities. We interviewed Dario Azzellini* to talk about this issue in depth: the emergence of new values and social relations not just in the recuperated workplaces but also in the communities, the need to re-orient production, the overcoming of the separation between political, economic and social spheres, and the role of workers’ control in the larger struggle against capitalism.

"The whole country can hear me at the moment. I am urging everyone to head to government buildings, get into offices, paralyze the activity of the entire government sector," Pashinyan told a meeting late on Wednesday. He said "rural residents and residents of townships should compel all heads of local administrations to join the opposition movement". The opposition movement has pledged money awards to those police officers who will join the protesters. "The first police officer who becomes our comrade-in-arms and joins our fight will get $10,000. All the rest will get $2,000 each," political analyst Armen Grigoryan told the meeting in central Yerevan. He said the money had been promised "by a fellow countryman living abroad".

SWIFT confirms neutral status in Russia, plans to continue staying outside of politics

The global financial messaging service provider SWIFT plans to continue staying outside of politics, the company said Wednesday referring to Chief Executive Officer Gottfried Leibbrandt. "Neutrality is integral to SWIFT, it’s one of our core principles. As a unique utility to the global economy, we believe in serving the global financial community in its entirety. Having as many customers on our network as possible is beneficial to everyone, and in the interests of all global economic flows," CEO was quoted as saying at the annual general meeting in Moscow. Amid a sharp deterioration of relations between Russia and the west, disconnection from SWIFT is one of potential scenarios being discussed now. Earlier this week CEO of Russia’s top lender Sberbank Herman Gref said he doubts that Russia will be disconnected from SWIFT. The possibility of Russia's disconnection from SWIFT has been discussed since 2014, when the first anti-Russian sanctions were introduced over the Ukrainian crisis.

Why Do They Tell Us Transparent Lies?

US officials and the presstitutes tell us that the illegal US missile attack on Syria destroyed chemical weapons sites where chlorine and sarin are stored/manufactured. If this were true, would not a lethal cloud have been released that would have taken the lives of far more people than claimed in the alleged Syrian chemical attack on Douma? Would not the US missile attack be identical to a chemical weapons attack and thus place the US and its vassals in the same category as Washington is attempting to place Assad and Putin?

What about it, you chemical weapons experts? Do chemical weapons only release their elements when they explode from intended use but not when they explode from being militarily attacked?

There is no evidence in Syria of chemical residue from the chemical weapons facilities allegedly destroyed by US missiles. No dead victims. No reports of hospitals treating Syrian casualties of the American chemical attack. How can this be if such sites were actually hit?

Rubin," the envoy said, demonstrating the document. "This document confirms that nerve agents like Novichok were not only produced but were even patented as a chemical weapon in the United States. And this is not an old story, this happened just several years ago: the patent is dated December 1, 2015," the envoy said.

The State Department spokesperson also said the recent airstrikes led by the US, France and the UK were made after “intelligence gathering”, adding “we are very serious about this and we will not tolerate the use of these illegal chemical weapons to kill innocent men, women and children.” She also said the whole goal of the Russian and Syrian government is to cover up, stating “their goal is to try to deflect attention.

The Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs accuses Turkey of challenging European law and makes it clear that Greek sovereignty over Imia is clear and indisputable. It also calls on Ankara to stop perversion and to reunite. “While the European Union calls on Turkey to respect European law, she answers with a provocative circumvention announcement. It repeats a flagrantly illegal position, ignoring the fact that the legal status of the Aegean is fully guaranteed by international law. The Greek sovereignty over Imia is clear and indisputable in accordance with the Lausanne Treaty of 1923, the 1930 Italian-Turkish Agreements and the 1947 Treaty of Paris.
