On March 21, UK Minister of State for Defense Annabel Goldie stated that London would provide Kiev with armor piercing shells for its Challenger 2 main battle tanks, including Depleted uranium (DU) ammunition.
"I would like to note in this regard that if all this happens, then Russia will be forced to react accordingly – I mean that the Collective West is already starting to use weapons with a nuclear component," Vladimir Putin declared during presence of Chairman Xi Jinping on March 21 in Moscow.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu also made very critical remarks on this matter. The use of munitions with depleted uranium will dramatically reduce Ukrainian capabilities of producing high quality food, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at the press conference in Moscow.
Depleted uranium is the gift that keeps on killing. Just ask the people of Iraq. Cancer rates and birth defect rates both went up exponentially after the U.S. military systematically defiled their air, water and soil with depleted uranium. And it doesn’t go away. 10 years after the invasion of Iraq, a team of scientists “detected high levels of uranium contamination in soil samples at three sites in the province of Nineveh”, and those high levels were being directly blamed for “dramatically increasing rates of childhood cancers and birth defects at local hospitals”. Under no circumstances should depleted uranium munitions ever be used in warfare, and our leaders know this. But now the western powers will be sending depleted uranium munitions to Ukraine, and this is nothing less than a war crime against the Ukrainian people.
Soldiers of Ukraine’s ‘Thor’ special operations group are using satellite data provided by the CIA to choose targets when conducting drone strikes against Russian forces, the unit’s commander told The Times.
The 27-man group, which is formally a police special operations unit, functions independently from the Ukrainian army and works in close collaboration with the country's military intelligence, the GUR, which provides them with ammunition and intel. According to The Times, the unit has complete license to select its missions, where it barracks and when it fights.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson warned that the Biden administration is planning to arrest more than 1,000 nonviolent January 6 protestors.
Carlson outlined how the U.S. government under the leadership of Joe Biden is planning to arrest thousands of Trump supporters as Democrats plot to arrest the 45th President seemingly for political reasons.
“Unless something unexpected happens, Democrats will have taken the unprecedented step of using a corrupt justice system to take out the front runner in the Republican presidential field, in a presidential race,” Carlson said. “If that happens, America will never be the same.”
Carlson pointed out that the Biden administration is planning to arrest nonviolent protesters, as opposed to individuals who were accused of violence on January 6.
“These are not people who broke windows or tussled with cops. These are patriotic Americans who questioned, who dared to question the official story of the 2020 election,” Carlson said.
Former CDC Director, Dr. Robert Redfield, recently appeared on an episode of Hill.TV’s Rising to warn that a “great pandemic is coming.” He said the new pandemic will be a consequence of international bioterrorism and gain-of-function research, that continues, despite being implicated as the cause of covid-19.
“I think it’s going to come, not from spillover, it’s going to come from gain-of-function research or intentional bioterrorism. It’s going to be a bird flu virus that is manipulated to be able to transmit human-to-human, very similar to what we saw with COVID,” Redfield said.
Donald Trump on Friday threatened “death and destruction” if he’s criminally charged in New York — writing the shocking social media warning after posting an image of himself holding a baseball bat next to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s head.
“They are HUMAN SCUM!” the 76-year-old former president raged in one post asking why Bragg “refuses to do the right thing and ‘call it a day?’”
Trump is seeking a rematch against President Biden in 2024 and previously used heated language ahead of actual violence — most notoriously on Jan. 6, 2021, when he told thousands of supporters to march on the Capitol and “fight like hell” to prevent certification of Biden’s Electoral College win, which they proceeded to do by smashing into the building and battling with police.
An American judge famously said a grand jury would “indict a ham sandwich, if that’s what you wanted,” but it appears that the grand jury in Manhattan won’t indict former POTUS 45 Donald J. Trump.
For the second day, the grand jury did not meet, apparently because hate-Trump Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg believes it might not indict Trump in connection with hush money paid to Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, blonde bombshell of the blue movie trade.
One possible reason: A letter from the attorney for Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney who fingered the president for the payments. Cohen pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign-finance law, but the former attorney said Trump had nothing to do with the payment.
After being interrupted by applause in the room, Biden then said, “but this builds on other steps you’ve taken and we’ve taken, like the most significant gun safety law in 30 years to help keep guns out of the hands of — to help keep guns out of the hands of domestic political advisors.”
Riot police clashed with protesters for a second night in Paris as demonstrations continued against the government’s plans to raise the French pension age.
The growing unrest since the start of the year, which has resulted in a wave of strikes and rubbish piling up on the streets of the French capital, has left President Emmanuel Macron with the gravest challenge to his authority since the so-called “Gilets Jaunes” or “Yellow Vest” protests of December 2018.
OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and Fang Bingxing - considered the 'father of China's Great Firewall', are joining OpenAI co-founder Elon Musk in raising concerns regarding the dangers of artificial intelligence (AI).
"We’ve got to be careful here," the 37-year-old Altman told ABC News last week, adding "I think people should be happy that we are a little bit scared of this."
"I’m particularly worried that these models could be used for large-scale disinformation ... Now that they’re getting better at writing computer code, [they] could be used for offensive cyber-attacks."
Syria's President Bashar al-Assad continues to be brought "in from the cold" and back into the Arab regional fold at rapid pace, with Reuters confirming on Thursday the prior rumors that Saudi Arabia and Syria were on the brink of fully restoring diplomatic ties. They will now reopen embassies - a huge step. Is a return to the Arab League next?
"Syria and Saudi Arabia have agreed to reopen their embassies after cutting diplomatic ties more than a decade ago, three sources with knowledge of the matter said, a step that would mark a leap forward in Damascus's return to the Arab fold," Reuters reports.
The FTC explains on its website: "You get a call. There's a panicked voice on the line. It's your grandson.
"He says he's in deep trouble — he wrecked the car and landed in jail. But you can help by sending money.
"You take a deep breath and think. You've heard about grandparent scams.
"But darn, it sounds just like him. How could it be a scam? Voice cloning, that's how."
The Pentagon has admitted it is worried about growing Chinese influence in Mauritius amid warnings that plans by the United Kingdom to return a chain of islands to the Indian Ocean nation could undermine the security of the vital military base on Diego Garcia.
Rep. Mike Waltz, Republican chairman of the House military readiness subcommittee, wrote to the Department of Defense in December seeking assurances that any deal would not allow China to encroach on the U.S. base.
That could have a 'catastrophic' impact on U.S. military reach, he said at the time.
Thousands of Israeli protesters have taken to the streets, blocked main roads with some being arrested across the occupied territories in what they call “A Day of Paralysis” to protest plans by prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's far-right cabinet to overhaul the regime’s judicial system.
Protest organizers began a fresh day of demonstrations on Thursday, with dozens of large gatherings expected to draw as many as half a million people to the streets in major cities, on highways and outside the residences of the members of the coalition cabinet.
A group of Israeli military reservists unveiled banners on the statue of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism, at the entrance to the coastal city of Herzliya.
The euro area won’t be able to recover massive terms-of-trade losses incurred by rising energy prices, European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde explained, during a conference at Frankfurt’s Goethe University on Wednesday.
According to the head of the bloc's regulator, the cost of those losses must ultimately be shared between firms and workers.
“And it is important that there is fair burden-sharing between them, with both accepting that they cannot fully recover the income that the euro area has paid to the rest of the world and the ensuing loss of output,” Lagarde explained.
She added that the Eurozone has been hit by an inflation shock that is currently working its way through the entire economy.
The Indian government has ordered the removal of security barricades placed outside the United Kingdom's mission and High Commissioner Alex Ellis' residence in New Delhi in protest against an attack on its diplomatic mission in London.
In retaliation for the UK police's inaction regarding an act of vandalism at the Indian High Commission in London by Khalistani extremists earlier this week, the security outside the mission and the residence of the High Commissioner were removed on Wednesday.
On being asked about the removal of barricades, a British High Commission spokesperson declined to reply, saying, "We do not comment on security matters."
Ukraine’s foreign backers should be prepared to maintain their military support for a long time, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said.
“The need [for weapons] will continue to be there, because this is a war of attrition; this is about industrial capacity to sustain the support,” the official told the Guardian newspaper on Wednesday.
He noted that Ukraine’s expenditure of munitions in the conflict with Russia has outpaced the production capacity of the nations arming Kiev. The NATO chief urged members of the US-led bloc to beef up their military spending to at least the target level of 2% GDP, to sustain the war effort.
French authorities struggled on Thursday to suppress nationwide protests against President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reform. Over a million demonstrators took to the streets across the country in what some security sources described as an “insurrection” against the government in Paris.
Tens of thousands of workers went on strike and protesters blocked public transportation, schools and oil refineries. Police used tear gas, water cannons, flash-bangs and batons to disperse the demonstrators. Videos making rounds on social media showed heavily armored officers clubbing unarmed protesters.
A leading Frexit politician has called for French president Emmanuel Macron to be impeached, as anger persists over his controversial pension reforms. François Asselineau called on legislators in the National Assembly, known as députés, to enact the “removal procedure” to force Mr Macron out of office.
Bordeaux's town hall was set on fire during angry protests in France as demonstrators continue to hit out at pension reforms imposed by President Emmanuel Macron. It has not been established who was responsible for the fire, but it was quickly put out by fire services.
