Russian ambassador to UN asks US counterpart to avoid insulting Russia

Russian Deputy Ambassador to the UN, Vladimir Safronkov, on Friday urged U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley to refrain from insulting Russia and to put collective work at the Security Council on a healthy basis. "I’d like to ask the speakers here - the U.S. representative and members of other delegations - to refrain from insulting my country," Safronkov said at an emergency meeting of the Security Council. "No one has the moral right to do it. We never allow ourselves to do such things." As the U.S. Ambassador and current President of the UN Security Council, Haley "has a real chance to put collective work at the Council on a healthy footing but this will never happen if the viewpoint of just one nation is passed off for absolute truth." Nikki Haley alleged in her speech at the meeting Russia, which "(...) is supposed to be a guarantor of the removal of chemicals weapons from Syria", had failed to do so, "(...) as innocent Syrians continue to be murdered in chemical attacks."

Peter Thiel Is Now the Bilderberg Group's Most Prominent Member

The long-standing relationship between President-elect Donald Trump and Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel was solidified during a meeting of Silicon Valley brass and right-wing political insurgents with an awkward, finger-clutching handshake. Thiel, who had stumped for and donated to Trump’s campaign, was seated at Trump’s left hand during a summit designed to cut through some of the tensions between the leaders of America’s most powerful technology businesses and the future head of the federal government. Thiel, who’s public support of Trump got him namechecked in a number of Palo Alto shoegaze thinkpieces during the campaign, is considered by his political opponents to be the very model of a modern techno-fascist. The fact that he is openly a member of the Bilderberg Group, which is commonly conflated with the supposed “New World Order,” may amplify concerns as he become a critical part of President Trump’s inner circle.

Who Towers Behind Trump?

An inquiry into the background of flamboyant American entrepreneur Donald J. Trump provides some surprising insights into Trump’s path to power and influence, for the fact is that Trump’s rise to stardom came as a direct consequence of his having functioned as hardly more than a colorful front man for some very wealthy behind-the-scenes sponsors.

Everyone knows, of course, about Trump’s gambling operations and of the wide-ranging links of the gambling industry to organized crime. But the story is much bigger than that. In his own memoir, The Art of the Deal, Trump proudly described how in 1987 he bought his first casino interests when he purchased 93% of the voting stock in the Resorts International gambling concern.

Social Media Companies Must Be Made Public Utilities to Stop Further Abuse (Video)

Political correctness has become a cancer in Western society. It inhibits the free and open discussion of ideas, making all of us the worse off for it as it slowly erodes our proud culture of free and open speech. And we’re not talking about repressing anything even close to hate speech, unless you think that dressing up in the colors of the American flag is somehow hate speech. And no, that’s not a joke.

In today’s information age, free speech has never been more powerful, or threatening to established powers. And because freedom of speech is generally enshrined in Western culture while censorship is frowned upon, they have had to go with other routes to censor information. Their latest ‘non-censorship censorship’ tactic is to simply label it as ‘fake news’. And while that’s been going on for a while, Germany has stepped it up by putting it into law.

Donald Trump Has Just Committed The United States To A Disastrous War In Syria

US cyber attack shuts down Al-Masdar News for five hours

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:45 P.M.) – On Friday afternoon, Al-Masdar News experienced its biggest hacker attack ever, leaving the website inaccessible to its readers for five hours.

Incidentally, the DDOS attack took place hours after it was revealed that ISIS launched an offensive shortly after US missiles struck Shayrat Airbase, grounding its airplanes at the Homs airfield.

The IT department said the massive DDOS attack could be traced exclusively back to the United States although it could not determine who was responsible for the hacking.

Reports of Chemical Attack Appeared Before Syrian Airstrike in Idlib - Syrian FM

The accusations against the Syrian government army allegedly using chemical weapons in the incident in the Syrian province of Idlib make no sense since Damascus has been succeeding in fighting terrorism on all fronts, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said Thursday.

“In such context [of government’s army success] would it be logical for us to use chemical weapons,” Muallem said.

Moreover, the first reports of the chemical attack in the province of Idlib appeared a few hours before the Syrian Air Forces conducted an airstrike on an al-Nusra Front ammunition depot on April 4, Walid Muallem noted.

"The chemical attack in Khan Shaykhun was reported at 06:00 am, while the first airstrike by the Syrian army on an ammunition depot of al-Nusra terrorists with chemical weapons inside it was carried out at 11:00 am," Muallem said.

Evidence Calls Western Narrative About Syrian Chemical Attack Into Question

Although Western media immediately accused Bashar al-Assad of participating in a gas attack against his own people, the evidence indicates that the intended target was not immediately in a civilian area and was in fact a location where Syrian White Helmets were on the scene with rebel groups at what observers have claimed was a storage facility for conventional and chemical munitions. Additionally, evidence indicates that rebel groups may have had prior knowledge of the attack and knew that there was a risk of chemical weapons being unleashed. The attack also came in the aftermath of a trip by Senator John McCain to meet with groups known to associate with radical jihadist factions in Syria, at a time when the United States government has been engulfed in a power struggle between different political factions who disagree strongly over what should be appropriate policy in regards to the Syrian civil war.

Scott Adams: The Syrian Air Base Attack

As I blogged yesterday, the claim that Assad ordered a chemical attack on his own people in the past week doesn’t pass my sniff test. For Assad to order a gas attack now – while his side is finally winning – he would have to be willing to risk his life and his regime for no real military advantage. I’m not buying that.

But let’s say the world believes Assad or a rogue general under his command gassed his own people. What’s an American President to do? If Trump does nothing, he appears weak, and it invites mischief from other countries. But if he launches 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian military air base base within a few days, which he did, the U.S. gets several benefits at low cost:

RUSSIA PLEDGES TO ‘INCREASE EFFECTIVENESS’ OF SYRIAN AIR DEFENSES

Russia has pledged to “increase the effectiveness” of the Syrian military’s air defenses after a U.S. airstrike on an airfield held by Syrian forces, Russian news agency Interfax reports.

Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Friday that Moscow would take steps to “strengthen and raise the effectiveness of the Syrian armed forces’ systems of anti-aircraft defense systems.”

However Konashenkov stopped short of pledging fresh deployments, and Russia also has air defenses at its own facilities in Syria. What is more, the Kremlin admitted the Russian military was notified by the U.S. before the strike and refused to comment on why it did not attempt to stop it.

Furious Putin calls US airstrikes an 'illegal act of aggression' and suspends deal to avoid mid-air clashes with American fighter jets over Syria

Furious Vladimir Putin has called the US airstrikes on Syria an 'illegal act of aggression' and suspended a deal to avoid mid-air clashes with American fighter jets over the war-torn country.

The Russian President warned of grave damage to relations between Washington and Moscow after 60 Tomahawk missiles were fired at al-Shayrat airbase near Homs.

Syrian Army officials described the attack as an act of 'blatant aggression', saying it had made the US 'a partner' of ISIS, the ex-Nusra Front and other 'terrorist organisations'.

The US insists the base was used by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces to launch a deadly chemical attack that killed 80 on Tuesday.

The Syrian airfield targeted by United States airstrikes early Friday was “almost completely destroyed,” a human rights group in the country said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the missile attack damaged over a dozen hangars, a fuel depot and an air defense base. About 60 U.S. Tomahawk missiles hit the Shayrat air base, southeast of Homs, a small installation with two runways.

“President Trump has told some members of Congress that he is considering military action in Syria in retaliation for this week’s chemical attack and recognizes the seriousness of the situation, a source familiar with the calls tells CNN.”

This completely contradicts Trump’s attitude towards Syria just four years ago when, faced with the exact same situation, Barack Obama seemed to be on the verge of attempting regime change.

In one September 5, 2013 all-caps rant, Trump tweeted, “AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA – IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!”

“Don’t attack Syria – an attack that will bring nothing but trouble for the U.S. Focus on making our country strong and great again!” Trump tweeted four days later.

Over half a million Syrians are dead. Half the population is displaced. Aerial bombardment by the Americans, the Russians, the Syrians and others continues to devastate Syria and Iraq. The Americans recently admitted to a major atrocity in Mosul, where 200 civilians have been killed. That attack did not seize the Security Council or bring forth fulminations from the Western press. Hypocrisy is central to the morals at the Security Council. This does not mean one should not be horrified by what has happened at Khan Shaykhun. But more than anything, the international community must urge a thorough investigation of these events before rushing either to a forensic judgment about what happened and to a response-particularly a military response?in retaliation. Sober heads need to prevail. War is rarely the answer. Particularly when we don?t as yet know the question.

However, the US says it warned Russia one hour before it fired 59 tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat air base.

It would be completely naive to accept American allegations about the supposed chemical attacks on Idlib which occurred three days ago. It was an obvious and odious lie which America then passed on as fact, without allowing a full independent investigation. Yet America believed it, or at least pretended to believe it and their response was to launch 59 American Tomahawk missiles on Syrian airfield Al- Sha’ayrat in Homs province.

The Al-Sha’ayrat airbase was the place from which Syria fired anti-missile Sam rockets at attacking Israeli warplanes, two weeks ago. Syria downed one of the four warplanes, hit another and forced the remaining two fighter jets to quickly fly out of Syrian airspace.

This sent a strong message to Israel, a state which continues to illegally occupy Syrian territory, in addition to the decades long occupation of Palestine.

‘To protect Europe from terrorists, stop backing them in Syria’ – Assad interview before US strike

In an interview with Croatian newspaper Vecernji List on April 3 that was released on Thursday, Assad stressed that if there had been cooperation between Syria and Europe, some of the attacks that rocked Europe might have been prevented. However, such cooperation won’t be effective until Europe withdraws its support for the jihadists, he argued.

“If Europe wants to protect itself at this stage, it should first stop supporting terrorists in Syria. Assuming that we wanted to cooperate with them, no results can be achieved in these circumstances,” Assad said, adding that “in normal circumstance” terrorist attacks could be prevented via security cooperation.

Nigel Farage turns on ally Donald Trump after US missile strike on Syria

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has criticized his ally US President Donald Trump for ordering a missile strike against an airbase in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.
The MEP warned that many Trump voters will be confused by his retaliation.

“I am very surprised by this. I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying, ‘where will it all end?’” he said.

“As a firm Trump supporter, I say, yes, the pictures were horrible, but I’m surprised. Whatever Assad’s sins, he is secular.”

Farage also urged Britain not to get involved in any further airstrikes.

“Previous interventions in the Middle East have made things worse rather than better,” he said.

Russia REACTS: Putin calls for emergency UN meeting amid FURY at Trump 'act of AGGRESSION'

RUSSIA has reacted to Donald Trump's missile strikes on Syria, with Vladimir Putin blasting it as an act of "aggression against a sovereign nation”, according to his spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Peskov also insisted that “the Syrian army doesn’t have chemical weapons,” saying this had been “observed and confirmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a special UN unit.”

US Strikes on Syria: The World on the Brink of Global Conflict

The United States launched a missile strike on a Syrian airbase in the province of Homs. According to US officials, the attack was "an act of retaliation" for the alleged use of chemical weapons in the Syrian province of Idlib.

On April 5, there were reports that the Syrian Air Force hit the city of Khan-Sheikhun (the stronghold of an-Nusra) with chemical munitions. The US blamed Syria and its allies, Russia and Iran. Damascus, in turn, said that it launched an air strike at the ammunition depot, where chemical weapons were being prepared.

The unilateral strike of the United States was not supported by the UN Security Council. In addition, an independent investigation into what happened was not even initiated.

PENTAGON – and DAESH – TARGET IRAN

CENTCOM commander Army Gen. Joseph Votel channeled his full Dr. Strangelove in front of the US House Armed Services Committee this past Wednesday.

“We need to look at opportunities where we can disrupt [Iran] through military means or other means.”

As Orwellian as our times may be, this still ranks as a declaration of war. With the inbuilt consequence of smashing to bits the UN nuclear deal struck with Iran in the summer of 2015.

Joseph Strangelove did not bother to chainsaw his words.

‘The US is policing the world’ Le Pen SAVAGES Trump over airstrike on Syrian base

She said: “I am a little bit surprised because Mr Trump has said on numerous occasions that the US would no longer be policing the world, and yet, that is exactly what he is doing right now.

“Is it too much to ask that we wait for the chemical weapons attack inquiry findings before launching such airstrikes?”

Mrs Le Pen also said that she did not want for the war-torn country to spiral into chaos and lawlessness as a result of Friday’s US-led attack on the Syrian regime.

She said: “I would like for us to avoid a repetition of the situation in Iraq and Libya in Syria, because what happened there (the US-led military interventions) led to chaos, and both countries have since become hotbeds of Islamic fundamentalism.

“What happened is terrible, yes, and I bitterly condemn the gas attack, but could we not wait to hear the results of an international inquiry?”

Russian MoD Says US Missile Attack on Syrian Airbase Prepared Long Ago

According to the Russian data recording technology, only 23 cruise missiles reached the Syrian airbase. It is not clear where the other 36 cruise missiles landed," Konashenkov said at a briefing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which means the US Government's claim that "only" 6 people were killed are total bovine excrement! They cannot know how many were killed by those 36 other cruise missiles that went deeper into Syria. The US may have killed more civilians than supposedly died in the chemical weapons attack! Even the shorter-range Block IIIK TLAM-D could fly past Syria into Iraq or even Iran!

This is greater than a 50% failure rate!

War crimes Trump after 2.5 month presidency

According to Marjorie Cohn, professor emeritus of the Thomas Jefferson School of Law has American President Donald Trump, after only two and a half months of his presidency, already show now as a war criminal.

A week after his inauguration Trump regrets the death of a Navy Seal in an attack in southern Yemen. Trump did not mention the 30 people, including at least 10 women and children who were slain by American bombers.

Saudi Arabia Vs. Russia: The Next Oil Price War

International oil markets could be heading towards a new war, as leading OPEC and non-OPEC producers are vying for increased stakes. The unexpected cooperation between OPEC and non-OPEC countries, instigated by the full support of Saudi Arabia (OPEC) and Russia (non-OPEC) has brought some stabilization to the crude markets for almost half a year. The expected crude oil price crisis has been averted, it seems, leaving enough room when looking at the fundamentals to a bull market in the coming months. As long as Saudi Arabia, Russia and some other major producers (UAE, Kuwait), are supporting a production cut extension, financials will be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

U.S. Launches Tomahawk Missiles Against Syrian Government

By Brandon Turbeville

Shortly after the chemical weapons incident in Syria, Donald Trump paraded himself in front of the world posing as emotionally distraught over the deaths of “beautiful babies” in Syria as a result of what he claimed was a Syrian government chemical attack. Of course, while no one knows definitively who was responsible for the attack, it is clear that the Syrian government was not the responsible party. At best, a weapons depot was bombed that was housing chemical weapons belonging to Western-backed terrorists...
