Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Russia’s 4 dreadest military inventions

These weapons weren’t ever used in combat. Let’s hope they never will... TOS-1 Buratino is heavy flame-throwing system. Like the fairy-tale character, Buratino, (the Russian version of Pinocchio), this system can push its “nose” into any hole. The vehicle is based on the T-72 tank. Instead of a gun mount, however, it features 30 tubes (220-mm caliber) capable of unleasing a hurricane of fire in just a few seconds; the missiles contain a thermobaric mixture that literally smash shelters and troops into smithereens with shock, fire and shrapnel. The real hell begins afterwards, however. The thermobaric charge in each projectile creates an “air-mixture cloud” that explodes, creating pressure at a temperature of around 3,000 degrees Celsius, consuming all the surrounding oxygen and collapsing the pressure. It does not take a vivid imagination to guess what happens to anyone inside this cloud.

"DEFCON 1-Level Bad": Uproar After Steve Bannon Gets Loose With Lefty Magazine

In the wake of a site-crashing interview with the founder and editor of The American Prospect—in which he talked about administration in-fighting, tensions with North Korea, looming economic war with China, and his high hopes for Democrat’s focus on identity politics—top Trump advisor Steve Bannon, according to responses gathered by Axios, is possibly in pretty deep(er) shit just about now with his White House colleagues.

Scott Adams Tells You How to Know When You Are in a Mass Hysteria Bubble

History is full of examples of Mass Hysterias. They happen fairly often. The cool thing about mass hysterias is that you don’t know when you are in one. But sometimes the people who are not experiencing the mass hysteria can recognize when others are experiencing one, if they know what to look for.

I’ll teach you what to look for.

Theresa May has rejected an appeal from survivors of the 9/11 attacks to make public a suppressed report into the role of Saudi Arabia in funding Islamist extremism in the UK. Earlier this summer, the British government announced it had decided not to publish the information, citing national security reasons and the “vast amount of personal information” it contained.

Declining US urgently seeks to maintain imperial grip: “if Venezuela falls, humanity falls”

North Korea have long been the fly in the ointment, with United States officials dearly wishing they could overthrow Kim Jong-un and install a client regime. Unfortunately for American elites, the Kim Jong-un government both loath and fear the declining superpower and its long-held imperial ambitions. Can the North Koreans be blamed for these feelings? Its leader Kim Jong-un must be aware of the horrendous crimes the US military perpetrated against his country during the Korean War (1950-53). After the first year of the conflict all notable buildings in North Korea had been utterly levelled by the US Air Force. By the end American fighter pilots had committed further war crimes such as destroying a number of North Korea’s dams – the type of offence people were hanged for at Nuremberg. To rub salt into open wounds, the Americans gloated about the bombing of the dams which destroyed thousands of acres of rice crops – as the “Asians” scurried about trying to survive.

Syria calls on UN force US to stop committing war crimes

Yesterday, Syria accused the US and UK of providing chemical weapons materials to terrorists in the country, a move Syria also seeks to have condemned by the UN. In a statement presented to the UN, the Syrian government has said, “Syria calls again on the UN Security Council to fulfull its obligations for the sake of peace and security, and to stop the crimes of the US-led coalition against Syrian citizens”, The statement continued, “(The actions of the US and its allies) have become systematic. The coalition neglects the basics of international law, international humanitarian law and human rights”. On Wednesday of this week alone, US airstrikes killed 19 Syrian civilians, something the government finds totally unacceptable, especially as all US actions in the country are illegal according to international law.

America refuses to pause military drills in South Korea

A day after Donald Trump praised North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un for his “wise and well-reasoned” response to the current crisis, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staf Joseph Dunford, has said something that is both unwise and unreasonable. While in Beijing working on establishing a communications hotline with China in order to avoid future conflicts, Dunford said something which demonstrates that the United States is continuing to ignore China and Russia’s joint request to cease all military drills and missile tests in and around South Korea. When asked if the US still intends to go through with its scheduled drill in South Korea, Dunford stated, “My advice to our leadership is that we not dial back our exercises. The exercises are very important to maintaining the ability of the alliance to defend itself. As long as the threat in North Korea exists, we need to maintain a high state of readiness to respond to that threat”.

Syrians Are Going Home: Western Backed Terrorists Brought Nothing but Weariness, Poverty and Death

In Jaramanah, Damascus we met with many internally displaced people. The estimated 6.4 million IDPs in Syria have almost invariably, fled to Syrian government controlled areas for refuge from the US Coalition extremist factions who have driven them from their hometowns and villages across Syria. This area had historically been Druze and Christian populated. Now it has been crowded with Syrians from all walks of life, backgrounds and regions. All spoke to me of their hardship under the US Coalition armed & funded extremist & terrorist factions. Many had been driven from their homes by the armed mercenary forces, suffering hideous wounds in the process. One old man from Talbiseh in Homs had lost one leg, been shot in the spine and had his remaining foot crushed by the Nusra Front brigades who had invaded his village and driven inhabitants from their homes by force. He was selling bread on the street, provided by his wife, to pay for an apartment with no roof.

Big Plans On The Hard Left For November 4

One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn.

Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government.

Iran to beef up missile potential — defense ministry

Iran is resolved to boost its missile power, especially ballistic and cruise missile capabilities, PressTV television channel reported on Thursday, citing Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami. The Brigadier General was speaking on Thursday before the parliament, which discussed his candidature proposed by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for the post of the country’s defense minister. "In the next four years, apart from enhancing combat and defense capabilities, we will devote a special effort to boost missile and ballistic power, strategic air power as well as strategic maritime power and increase rapid reaction forces," PressTV quoted Hatami as saying. "Iran has achieved defense deterrence power and the enemies acknowledge Iran’s high defense power in the region and the world," he stressed. He also said that 10 rapid reaction brigades had been established in the country.
