Does Not Compute: US Military Asks for Troops to 'Retake' Syrian City

Last time we checked Raqqa was in Syria. Only the US is able to "retake" a locality in a foreign country. Unlike the Secretary of Defense, the Department of State and the CIA which are all seething with rage that the US war against Assad is going badly the US military itself always seemed more interested in confronting ISIS rather than the Syrian government. That's not terribly surprising considering that both ISIS and the main anti-Assad rebel group, Jabhat al-Nusra are merely updated brand names for US military's old nemesis, Al Qaeda in Iraq. Thus military brass is now saying that its war against ISIS is undermanned and wants more troops so that it can roll back the terrorist caliphate. That's all rather well and good but for one tiny detail. Neither Iraq nor Syria actually want those troops. Iraq has already capped US military presence at just under 4,000 troops albeit it is quietely acquiescing to a larger, undisclosed number.

Stolen Valor: Washington Post Claims Credit for Syrian Anti-ISIS Victories for the US

Stick to reading WaPo and you may come off with the impression it's US rather than Syrians and Russians rolling back ISIS. The public relation functionary for the CIA, the Pentagon, Israel and the Saudis - David Ignatius of the Washington Post - forgot to take his meds. Thus he experienced an outbreak of acute delusions...

All the Best for the Children!

"All the best for the children" - The inscription on the Ukrainian howitzer shells. The man who is sitting nearby, pointing to the shells, prepared for the killing of the children of Donbass, is a fighter from the "Azov" battalion. His name is Yuri. After a while the Ukrainian howitzer will send the shells to our side, and who knows, maybe one of them was the cause of the appearance of another line of mourning on the granite in memory of the children, the victims of the Ukrainian aggressors... Counting "the Alley of Angels", the memory of the dead children, those who died still really had not even begun to live... I recently watched a video by Anatoly Shariy, in which his colleague polls Kievans on the subject of whether or not they believe that the fighters of the so called Ukrainian volunteers battalions are Nazis. A large part of Kievans, like practically all Ukrainians, do not believe that Nazis are fighting in the battalions.

How Neil Bush Succeeded in Business Without Really Trying

Neil Bush, the fourth child of George and Barbara, was long thought to be the rising star of the family. He had the looks, the convivial demeanor, middle-of-the-road politics and, despite suffering from a severe case of dyslexia that made him the laughing stock of St. Albans (the stuffy DC prep school that groomed Al Gore) the brainpower. At least he seemed brighter than Jeb or George Jr. And, most important of all, he was the favorite son of Barbara Bush, the Agrippina of American politics.

All those lofty political aspirations came to a fatal crash in the fall of 1988, at the precise moment his father was poised to ascend to the presidency, when the Silverado Savings and Loan went belly up with Neil in the driver’s seat.

Ukraine won't be in the EU or NATO any time soon. Here's why

Original headline: "Neither Russia nor Europe". Jean-Claude Juncker sees no chance for a quick admission of Ukraine into NATO and the EU. Giving it the choice of either Russia or the EU was a mistake. For most German newspapers, the exciting message was not even worth mentioning. Just the FAZ accorded 13 lines to the statement by the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker at that. Therein was what Juncker let out in a speech at The Hague. His exact words were: "Ukraine will definitely not, in the next 20 to 25 years, become a member of the EU, and also not a member of NATO." The enrollment of the troubled and divided country into the EU and NATO is still the stated aim of the government in Kiev. Brussels was holding out EU membership to the Ukrainians as soon as they have created the conditions for and meet the so-called Copenhagen criteria.

Savchenko threatened prisoners with having their organs harvested

"To say that they beat us would be saying nothing. They killed us. They shot us. They hit us not just with hands and feet, but with rifle butts and with anything at hand," said the liberated priest. He added that Nadezhda Savchenko, who is currently under arrest in Russian Voronezh,"especially distinguished herself." "She personally threatened to turn over all of our group for organ-harvesting for the money. When the others didn't agree to hand over our bodies for organ-harvesting, she threatened to shoot us, not to waste the expense of delivering us to the SBU. He added that "she personally was trying to destroy us in any way possible and personally took part in the sadistic outbursts, and beat us with various excuses. To the end of my days, I will never forget that voice of hers," said Archpriest Vladimir. He said that in the torture sessions they tied their hands behind their back. Then they stood the men face to the wall then started the drubbing...
