The U.S. government, from Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton, told blatant lies about the Iraqi government creating chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons in 2002, despite having been informed of the fact that Iraq was doing no such thing. U.S. leaders lied about ties between Iraq and terrorists that they also knew did not exist. Then the U.S. military attacked and invaded Iraq, in the process heavily bombing old sites of Iraqi chemical weapons from the 1980s, many of those weapons having been provided by the United States. In large part because of the U.S. origin of the old Iraqi chemical weapons, the U.S. kept quiet about them during the new war. Another reason for the official silence was that, during the 2003 U.S. destruction of Iraq, many of those old weapons were seized by fledgling terrorist groups. The war had done exactly what it had been justified as being needed to prevent; it had given WMDs to terrorists.

Serbian authorities conceal agreements with NATO

The Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic signed an agreement on diplomatic immunity for the NATO representatives and logistic support in the territory of the Republic. "This document allows the NATO members to obtain support of the Serbian authorities on transportation, technical aid, and provision of the NATO military with goods and services. While these are Serbian authorities who bear all the costs, and NATO is absolved of all responsibility for damaging Serbia, including death of the civilians", the expert pointed out. It is not the first agreement the country's authorities have signed. Negotiations with the NATO were started just after Slobodan Milosevic had been dethroned in 2000. First of all, they agreed upon the usage of airports, sea bays, roads and railroads, information and communication systems. The agreement was signed secretly by the Foreign Minister Vuk Draskovic in 2005. In 2006 the Ministry of Defence and the Serbian government signed 3 agreements with the US.

North Korea has threatened to attack South Korea and the United States if the two allies conduct joint drills in March. Pyongyang says the exercises are preparations for war and says it will retaliate.

US expert: Russian-US relations will not change only because of changing leadership

Talking about 2016 presidential election in the United State, Executive Director of the Center for the National Interest Paul Sanders said he finds it "very unpredictable." "I think that at this point certainly we could have a Democratic president, which would in that case almost certainly be Hillary Clinton," he said at the meeting with Russian Federation Council’s International Affairs Committee chairman Konstantin Kosachev. "But we also could have a Republican president because (former) Secretary Clinton is not universally popular," he noted adding that "it’s much more difficult to predict on the Republican side who the nominee will be although Mr Trump has a certainly increasing and strong position."
