How An Ever Sanctioning Superpower Is Losing Its Status

The U.S. loves to dish out sanctions left and right and the Trump administration has increased their use. But sanctions, especially unilateral ones, do not work. The U.S. has not recognized that because it never looked if those sanctions fulfill their aims. A recent Government Accountability Office report found:

Th U.S. sanctions and sanctions and sanctions but never checked if sanctions work to the intended purpose. The efforts to sanction Russia have surely led to some unintended consequences. They are the reason why the alliance between China and Russia deepens every day. The U.S. has the exorbitant privilege of having its own currency being used as the international reserve. The sanctioning of U.S. dollar transactions is the reason why the U.S. is now losing it:

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 3, 2019: RUSSIA TESTED S-500 ELEMENTS IN SYRIA 165  7  0

Syrian, Iranian and Russian forces started a joint military drill, involving heavy military equipment, rocket launchers and warplanes, on October 1, al-Watan newspaper reported on October 2. According to al-Watan, the drills coincided with a series of protests against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in northeastern Syria.

Pro-government sources speculate that the military drill is a warning to the US-backed group. During the past few months, several sources claimed that the US-led coalition and the SDF is planning an attack on the Syrian Army on the western bank of the Euphrates.

Is There A Ukrainian Armageddon Dead Ahead For Dems?

For three years now, Americans have been hearing the cry “no one is above the law.” Those who have been repeating that mantra – aimed at President Donald Trump – seem to feel, however, that they themselves truly are above the law. As the Democrats’ Ukraine scandal unfolds, this becomes harder to ignore.

We reported last month on the Ukrainian Foreign Minister’s approval of the Steinmeier Formula and its main points. Leonid Kuchma in the Kiev delegation, and former Ukrainian chief of state, has signed on with his caveats: Today we add the latest bulletin, from October 1, followed by the September 27 report on Kuchma’s assessment.

Biden and Burisma Gas Company May be Linked to Around 15 Cases - Ukraine's Prosecutor General

Back in 2016, former Vice President Joe Biden publicly admitted to having threatened Ukrainian authorities with pulling $1 billion in US loan guarantees if Kiev did not fire the prosecutor in charge of the case against his son.

The Ukrainian Prosecutor General stated Friday that Hunter Biden and Burisma energy exploration and production company may be linked to around 15 criminal cases.

"Judging by what we see, there are around 15 [cases] to which Burisma, or Biden, or Zlochevsky, or Kurchenko may be linked. But I cannot say that these are all the proceedings that we see or that we currently understand. Work on audit or proceedings revision continues," Ukrainian Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka said at a briefing, as aired by Nash broadcaster.

Russia Rolls Out Missile Early Warning Systems in Arctic

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Two new Voronezh-type missile early warning radars will become operational in 2022 in the Komi Republic and the Murmansk region in northern Russia, the Defence Ministry said.

"Work continues on the construction of new radar stations for the missile early warning network in the Komi Republic and the Murmansk region. These works are planned to be completed in 2022," the ministry said.

These new radars will be the first deployed in Russia's Far North.

Russia has deployed so far a total of seven operational Voronezh-type radars as part of the country's missile early warning network. The systems of this type are currently functioning in several Russian regions, including the Kaliningrad region, the Leningrad region and in Syberia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russians must feel as though they have something very worthy of defending, if they are placing these early warning radars in this area.

Russia’s largest oil company ditches dollar in new oil deals

Russia’s largest oil company Rosneft has set the euro as the default currency for all new exports of crude oil and refined products.

As of September, Rosneft is seeking euros as the default option of payment for its crude oil and products, Reuters reported on Thursday, quoting tender documents the Russian firm has published.

“Rosneft has recently adjusted all the new contracts for export supplies to euros,” a trader at a company that regularly procures oil from Rosneft told Reuters, adding that buyers have already been notified of the change.

New Weapons & The New Tactics Which They Make Possible: Three Examples

The recent Houthi drone and missile strike on the Saudi oil installations has shown to the world something which the Russians have known for several years: that even rather primitive drones can be a real threat. Sophisticated drones are a major threat to every military out there, though Russia has developed truly effective (including cost-effective, which is absolutely crucial, more about that later) anti-drone capabilities.

First, lets look at the very low-cost end of the spectrum: drones

Russia's Largest Oil Company Ditches Dollar In New Oil Deals

Authored by Tsvetana Paraskova via OilPrice.com,

Russia’s largest oil company Rosneft has set the euro as the default currency for all new exports of crude oil and refined products, as the state-controlled giant looks to switch as many sales as possible from U.S. dollars to euros in order to avoid further U.S. sanctions against it.

As of September, Rosneft is seeking euros as the default option of payment for its crude oil and products, Reuters reported on Thursday, quoting tender documents the Russian firm has published.

“Rosneft has recently adjusted all the new contracts for export supplies to euros,” a trader at a company that regularly procures oil from Rosneft told Reuters, adding that buyers have already been notified of the change.

Rosneft is the biggest oil exporter from Russia, selling around 2.4 million barrels per day (bpd) of oil, according to Reuters estimates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that President Trump and his Cabinet expected this outcome, and have a reasonable remedy for it.

Unfortunately, recently, I have not been able to pair the world "reasonable" with any current actions taken by this White House in quite some time; this greatly concerns me.

Trump White House dares Pelosi to hold impeachment inquiry vote: report

The White House reportedly plans to send Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) a letter as early as Friday saying President Trump doesn’t need to comply with Democratic lawmakers until the full House chamber formally approves an impeachment inquiry against him, Axios reported.

By sending Pelosi the letter, Trump and the White House are aiming to force House Democrats in toss-up districts to take a formal stance on impeachment, Axios noted, adding that Republican sources say that even as the chamber’s minority party, GOP lawmakers can have a greater say in impeachment hearings and other parts of an inquiry once the full chamber formally approves it.

The letter to Pelosi and the chairmen of the six House committees participating in the inquiry was drafted as of Thursday night but had not been finalized or signed, according to Axios.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

2020 is probably going to be one of the ugliest Presidential campaign years I can remember for a very long time; I turned 70 this last year, so that is a lot of Presidential campaigns.

You have a sitting Republican President, Donald Trump, generally matched against former Vice President Democrat Biden both of whom love to "run their mouths", sometimes, does a real disservice to the causes they allege to espouse.

To date, nothing can be found tying President Trump to any impeachable acts; but Biden HAD to shoot his mouth off at a CFR meeting last year, about how he was able to turn the Ukrainian Investigatory "heat" off of his son, Hunter.

Bragging about this in public, was perhaps, not the smartest thing Bident could have been doing, but, oh well... Biden is hardly admired for his intellectual capabilities.
FLASHBACK, 2018: Joe Biden Brags At CFR Meeting About Withholding Aid To Ukraine To Force Firing Of Prosecutor

Please be aware that Joe Biden did this as a sitting Vice President; this kind of international "arm twisting" is one big, fat, hairy "no no" for a sitting Vice President to do, so yes, there should be some reasonable, bi-partisan investigation which needs to be done here.

That President Trump had a call with current Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky (as a mutual pact with Ukraine made this both necessary, and critically important), is not an impeachable offense; the Democrats are trying desperately to turn it into something it is, and was not, illegal, on the part of a sitting President.

But Democrats are insisting that the bringing up of this issue now, is an attempt to destroy Biden's potential bid for the Presidency in 2020, and therefore counts as an impeachable offense.

An impeachable offense must follow the rules and definitions of National law as they pertain to such a charge; and thus far, the best I can see of it, the accusations raised against President Trump, do not meet the legal definition of a crime.

So I would like to strongly caution my Democratic brothers and sisters, that if you think you can win in 2020 by playing this horrifically losing hand,, and perhaps get Trump out of office before the end of his first term, you are most probably very sadly mistaken.

What you will do, if you continue to persist with this ploy, is insure that Trump's base will come out in force for his re-election, and the states you gained in the mid-terms, will again swing back to Republican Congressional control.

Russian military holds large-scale naval drills off Syrian coast

Pompous Pompeo is pontificating about Syria using gas again so Russia is practicing air defense, anti-submarine warfare and sea rescue. Interesting!

The Russian Northern Fleet’s missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov currently on its long-distance deployment to the Mediterranean Sea held a series of shipboard exercises, including air defense drills, the Fleet’s press office reported on Wednesday.

“The ship’s crew held air defense and anti-submarine warfare exercises, and also practiced the ship’s protection and defense during a sea transit,” the press office said.

Exclusive: The FBI is running Facebook ads targeting Russians in Washington

The FBI is running ads on Facebook in the Washington DC area seemingly designed to target and recruit Russian spies as well as those who know about their work, CNN has learned.

One ad seen by CNN features a stock photo of a young woman at her graduation with her family. Russian text overlaid on the image reads, "For your future, for the future of your family."

Another shows a picture of a chess set, with Russian text that translates to, "Isn't it time for you to make your move?"

What a wonderful opportunity for the Russians to plant spies inside the FBI!

Solomon Hits Back With Receipts After MSM Denies DNC-Ukraine Collusion Attempt In 2016

While Democrats scramble to accuse President Trump of attempting to interfere with the 2020 US election by asking Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, the MSM has been hard at work trying to discredit proof that a DNC contractor begged Ukraine for 'dirt' on the Trump campaign in 2016.

EXPLOSIVE REPORT: Rep. Adam Schiff Linked to Prominent Ukrainian Arms Dealer!

Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is connected to a Ukrainian arms dealer. Is this why he’s willing to lie in front of the nation when accusing President Trump of crimes?

Adam Schiff is arguably the biggest liar in Congress…. ever. He now leads the House Intelligence Committee and this past week oversaw the Intel Committee where he attempted to align President Trump with some ‘trumped’ up allegations concerning his phone call with the President of the Ukraine. Schiff lied in his opening remarks and claimed numerous falsehoods about the President’s call in spite of the transcript being provided the day before.

Source: State Department IG Has Been Sitting on ‘Urgent’ Ukraine Matter for 4 Months

The inspector general (IG) at the U.S. Department of State has requested to provide an “urgent” briefing related to Ukraine to congressional staffers on Wednesday afternoon on a matter that he was made aware of four months ago, Breitbart News has learned.
A Trump administration official told Breitbart News that Steve Linick, the IG at the State Department who began his tenure under former President Barack Obama in 2013, “has been sitting on the alleged ‘urgent’ matter for four months.”

Citing anonymous sources, ABC News first reported the upcoming IG briefing to staffers from various committees in the House and Senate, noting that it came at the behest of Linick.

Linick is expected to focus on “documents obtained from the department’s Office of the Legal Adviser related to the State Department and Ukraine,” ABC News reported.

Ex-Ukraine prosecutor said he was told to back off probe of Biden-linked firm, files show

The fired prosecutor at the center of the Ukraine controversy said during a private interview with President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani earlier this year that he was told to back off an investigation involving a natural gas firm that was linked to Joe Biden’s son, according to details of that interview that were handed over to Congress by the State Department’s inspector general Wednesday.

Fox News obtained a copy of Giuliani’s notes from his January 2019 interview with fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin in which he claimed that his “investigations stopped out of fear of the United States.”

‘Pssst… Don’t tell anyone, but we surely will’: Putin pokes fun at question of whether Russia plans to meddle in 2020 US election

It seems Vladimir Putin has become so tired of Russian meddling claims that he ‘secretly’ told an NBC journalist that Moscow will surely influence the 2020 US vote. The confession was made in front of a laughing audience though.

Autumn of 2020 – the time when the US will choose their president – is nearing and there is no dying down of Russiagate, it seems. So NBC’s Keir Simmons, who came to Moscow to moderate the Energy Week forum, tried to get some information on the everlasting issue.

“Is Russia as [special prosecutor] Robert Mueller alleged attempting to influence the 2020 election in the US?” Simmons, a UK journalist who works as a foreign correspondent for the US broadcaster, wondered.

Putin then covered the microphone with his hand and whispered : “I’ll tell you in secret: Yes, we’ll surely be doing this … to make all of you laugh out loud there.”

Ambassador Yovanovich is a noted Trump-hater who blocked Ukrainian officials from traveling to the United States to hand over evidence of Obama misconduct during the 2016 election to President Trump.

Yovanovich was US ambassador to Ukraine during the 2016 election when the Ukrainian government was colluding with the DNC and Hillary Campaign to undermine the US presidential election.

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenkoko told journalists in March that Yovanovitch gave him a do not prosecute list during their first meeting.

Construction of US’s INF-Violating Missile Shield Site in Poland Almost Complete – Report

Moscow has repeatedly voiced concerns over the deployment of US missile defence system components in Poland and Romania, alleging that the MK-41 interceptor launchers could easily be used to fire offensive nuclear-tipped Tomahawk cruise missiles at targets inside Russia.

Construction of the Aegis Ashore facility in Redzikowo, northern Poland is nearing completion, with US Missile Defence Agency director Vice Adm. Jon Hill carrying out an inspection tour of the facility late last week, Defense Blog has reported.

Hill reportedly inspected multiple sites on the base, including the multipurpose and housing unit, galley, and the inside of the Aegis Ashore deckhouse structure, which contains the system’s command and control system.

Ukrainian Scandal: Trump Phone Call? How about Money Laundering by Clinton-Crime Capo Joe Biden

The Borderlands of the Ukraine have been a decisive battlefield for centuries. Here Stockholm, Berlin and Moscow vied for dominance. Karl XII had lost here to Peter the Great; Stalin defeated Hitler; now the Clintonites are likely to suffer in the Ukraine their ultimate defeat. The Democrats had made their biggest political mistake of the century in attacking Trump for the Biden affair — that is, if the Americans retain any common sense.

Vice-President Biden extorted millions of dollars in personal bribes from the vulnerable Ukrainian client state. When this sordid affair came under investigation, he blackmailed Ukrainians, using his position and American taxpayer money to force the sovereign state to fire its Attorney General for investigating the bribes.

PIERS MORGAN: If we swapped the name Hunter Biden for Donald Trump Jr, the Democrats and media would be going absolutely nuts - so it's time to start asking Joe Biden the key Ukraine questions he doesn't want to answer

I have a question about this Ukraine scandal.

It’s a simple question, but I think a relevant and important one given the current explosive cacophony of Impeachment noise erupting all around Washington.

And it’s a question that I know will provoke an instant new onslaught of hysteria from all sides.

Some will furiously accuse me of playing ‘whataboutery’ to try to distract attention from what they see as the real story.

Others will furiously applaud me for highlighting what THEY see as the real story.

The rest who read it will either be so furious they can’t express themselves at all due to all the foam spewing from their mouths - a common malady in these shrieking social media times – or they don’t care.

Here is total proof that it was the utterly corrupt Biden, a gangster that the crazed Democrats want to elect as President of the United States, who threatened the President of Ukraine, Poroshenko, and released one billion dollars to Poroshenko when he did Biden’s will and stopped the investigation of a firm in which Biden’s son had substantial interests.

It should scare every American that the presstitutes bury the real story and shrilly proclaim a false one. Our country, what little remains of it, is being stolen in front of our eyes.

These once-secret memos cast doubt on Joe Biden's Ukraine story

September 29, 2019 "Information Clearing House" - Former Vice President Joe Biden, now a 2020 Democratic presidential contender, has locked into a specific story about the controversy in Ukraine.

He insists that, in spring 2016, he strong-armed Ukraine to fire its chief prosecutor solely because Biden believed that official was corrupt and inept, not because the Ukrainian was investigating a natural gas company, Burisma Holdings, that hired Biden's son, Hunter, into a lucrative job.

There’s just one problem.

Hundreds of pages of never-released memos and documents — many from inside the American team helping Burisma to stave off its legal troubles — conflict with Biden’s narrative.

FLASHBACK - Hunter Biden’s new job at a Ukrainian gas company is a problem for U.S. soft power

Around the world, there is a major perception that U.S. foreign policy is dictated by a thirst for oil and gas. For example, a 2002 Pew Research poll found that 75 percent of French respondents felt that the United States-led invasion of Iraq was a simple ruse to gain control of Iraqi oil. And that isn't just what the "cheese-eating surrender monkeys" think either: Establishment figures in the United States such as Sen. John McCain and former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan have both made statements that suggest they buy into it, too.

Such a perception is probably an oversimplification, but there is clearly some truth to the idea. And whether it is true or not, perceptions clearly matter when it comes to international relations.

Shokin said that he was not going to “back away” from the “case of Burisma“, the company of Zlochevsky, the board of which Biden’s son joined soon after Euromaidan, the former president of Poland Aleksander Kwasniewski and also Devon Archer (the close friend of the stepson of the US Secretary of State John Kerry).

Scrutiny of business deals by former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s son Hunter now includes his joint venture with a Chinese government entity to buy a U.S. automotive technology company with potential military applications.

The ease with which the 2015 transaction was approved by the Obama administration alarmed Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, who is looking into whether the Obama-Biden White House intervened in the process.

One of the companies in the 2015 deal was Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), a billion-dollar investment fund backed by China that was formed by Hunter Biden and Chris Heinz, the stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry.

The Untold Story of the Trump-Ukraine ‘Scandal’: The Routine Corruption of US Foreign Policy

The most crucial aspects of the Trump-Ukraine “scandal,” which has led to impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump, are not being told, even by Republicans.

Trump was very likely motivated by politics if he indeed withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for Kiev launching an investigation into Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden, though the transcript of the call released by the White House between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelinsky does not make certain such a quid-pro-quo.

But what’s not being talked about in the mainstream is the context of this story, which shows that, politics aside, Biden should indeed be investigated in both Ukraine and in the United States.

The same Russian "troll factories" that sought to influence the 2016 elections have continued to target service members, veterans and their families online with "hateful and divisive messages," according to a two-year investigative report by Vietnam Veterans of America.

"They're incredibly good at branding" and are seeking to "pit us against each other" in the military and veterans community, said Kristofer Goldsmith, VVA chief investigator and author of the 191-page report.

#Greta Thunberg is decoy, Fossil Free-groups funded by billionaires who also fund Big Oil. Somebody’s manipulating Oil

The public child abuse in using Greta Thunberg to push the Fossil Free campaign to end investments in oil and gas world-wide, has far wealthier sponsors than local Swedish businessmen such as Ingmar Renzhog and Bo Thorén. The billion dollar climate-change industry is hyped up for a reason.

Soros investments in oil and gas far overshadow his investment in #FossilFree eco-environmental groups. He is not the only leftwing billionaire donating to end oil, and at the same time investing heavily in oil and gas.

One may assume that the Oil and Gas industry is currently subjected to a billionaire-funded, eco-group like “Arab Spring” where the mainstream media plays its usual role in hyping up sentiments. Somebody’s manipulating the industry to profit massively once the bubble bursts and the market needs more energy, writes historian, author and founder of Herland Report, Hanne Nabintu Herland.

Can the Middle East Survive With Israel Gone?

srael is dying. It has nothing to do with Hamas or Hezbollah, no rain of missiles will destroy Israel. Israel is in a cycle of self-destruction that began in the 1990s with the advent of the Likudist party. As Israel’s population increased and became increasingly radicalized with Jewish population no longer of young idealists but rather of economic refugees, the die was cast. From Ian Greenhalgh, an editor at Veterans Today:

The Untold Story of the Trump-Ukraine ‘Scandal’: The Routine Corruption of US Foreign Policy

The most crucial aspects of the Trump-Ukraine “scandal,” which has led to impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump, are not being told, even by Republicans.
But what’s not being talked about in the mainstream is the context of this story, which shows that, politics aside, Biden should indeed be investigated in both Ukraine and in the United States.

That’s the biggest crime in this story that isn’t being told. The illegal overthrow of a sovereign government.
As booty from the coup, the sitting vice president’s son, Hunter Biden, soon got a seat on the board of Ukraine’s biggest gas producer, Burisma Holdings.

Another Day, Another Scandal. What the ‘Trump-Ukraine Collusion’ Is Really About

This is soooooo boring.

For nearly a week, Washington has been consumed by reports that Donald Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up dirt on Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden.

To briefly recap: in February 2014, a US-backed coup spearheaded by ultra-rightists sent Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych fleeing and installed billionaire Petro Poroshenko in his place. This was bad news for a wealthy Yanukovych supporter named Mykola Zlochevsky who was widely accused of corruption and was in danger of losing all or some of his holdings. In an attempt to smooth things over with the Americans, Zlochevsky appointed Hunter Biden to a lucrative post with Burisma Holdings, a natural-gas company he founded in 2002. Hunter had just been discharged from the US Navy after testing positive for cocaine. He had no experience in the natural-gas business and knew nothing about the Ukraine. But he got the job anyway along with a salary of $50,000 a month.

US says Bashar Al Assad can't pursue peace while making war

War! War! War! It is the only thing they know!

A senior US official said that Syrian president Bashar Al Assad and his backers will not be allowed to pursue a military campaign and seek a political solution at the same time.

The remarks came on Friday, a day after the US concluded that the Assad regime had again used chemical weapons this year, soon after starting an offensive to reclaim the rebel-held north-western province of Idlib.

The Illusion of Control, by Robert Gore

The illusion of control that has sustained the US’s nominal government and its behind-the scenes power since World War II is fading both at home and abroad. In many areas the US military is no longer unquestionably superior and in some is demonstrably inferior. As military prowess goes so goes the American empire. Amplifying the decline and compounding its severity are the US’s perilous finances, deteriorating economy, and mounting political unrest.

If the US can’t defeat insurgents in smaller countries despite its overwhelming advantages in conventional military power, what would happen in a match with someone its own size, another superpower? Here the illusion of control is most deadly.......

BOMB-PLOTTING EXTREMIST AMERICAN SOLDIER TRIED TO JOIN US-BACKED NEO-NAZI MILITIA IN UKRAINE

SOURCE: THEGRAYZONE.COM

A FAR-RIGHT US SOLDIER ARRESTED BY THE FBI FOR PLOTTING DOMESTIC BOMB ATTACKS SOUGHT TO JOIN UKRAINE’S NEO-NAZI AZOV BATTALION, WHICH WAS DIRECTLY ARMED AND ADVISED BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
A far-right soldier in the United States Army has been arrested by the FBI for plotting bomb attacks targeting American media outlets and Democratic politicians.

While serving in the US military, this right-wing extremist gave fascist militants in Ukraine and other countries information on how to build bombs, including what he called “cell phone IEDs in the style of the Afghans.”

The FBI said he had also planned to travel to Ukraine in order to join the Azov Battalion, a neo-Nazi militia that has for years been directly supported by the US government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please give me a moment to process what I am reading here.

So the FBI failed to mention that this nutbrain, had been "armed and advised by American officers in order to turn up the heat on Russia?!?!?"

So that the FBI would look "butch" when they apprehended their "Patsy" and blame
Russia for what American FBI agents, and US military officers had done?!?

What if you found yourselves unable to stop some act of mayhem this guy could have committed, out of your view??!?

Would you have blamed Russia for it, then found the guy, and "neutralized him", after the damage was done?!?

I would politely suggest that the FBI perhaps, tha the whole organisation needs take off a few months, to decide what their real mission is, which I believe, is keeping America safe" from the threats which actually exist in this country, rather than creating bogus threats, like grooming this kind of patsy, as though Russia had actually been behind this.

Eat some yogurt and, and do some pilates; take your vitamins, particularly calcium magnesium; B; an "D".

Then, would you please report to the American people why you had to make a monster out of this guy, with the US military's involvement, and try to blame it all on the alleged, and highly manufactured "Baddie of All Baddies", Russia?!?

Russia doesn't scare me; but what scares the stuffing out of me, right now, is that some collective idiots in this administration, signed off on this, to make Russia look bad and evil, when it was actually the people in the US government who were evil enough, to try try to make this happen.

Syrian Army Prepares for Escalation in Golan Heights

On September 21, an EW unit of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) intercepted and took control of a large quadcopter-style unmanned aerial vehicle over the town of Erneh, near the contact line between the SAA and the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan Heights.

According to local sources, the UAV was likely operated by Israel. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) used similar UAVs in its attack on a Hezbollah media center in Lebanon’s Beirut on August 25. In own turn, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, a spokesman for the Israeli military, claimed that the UAV was not belonging to the IDF. Lt. Col. Adraee said that the UAV may have been “Iranian”.

Following the incident, the SAA has reinforced its positions near the Golan Heights.

The situation is escalating in the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone, where militants have resumed their attacks on government positions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So we have come to the point, where Israel and Syria duking it out militarily, over the Golan; this could get nasty in a heartbeat.

And please do not forget; Russia has aided Syria, militarily, when it was fighting the US-trained, equipped, and jihadist groups were allowed to function.

HOLES IN US BURNING SAUDI OIL FIELDS NARRATIVE COULD SPARK WAR WITH IRAN

Published: September 24, 2019
Share | Print This

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are escalating to new heights, drawing the United States into a confrontation with the Islamic Republic after a sophisticated attack targeted Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facility — the largest oil processing facility in the world — knocking out half of the country’s oil capacity, or more than 5 million barrels a day, and leaving the oil fields in flames.

The attack was nothing the Kingdom had seen before or expected: According to U.S. and Saudi intel, 18 drones and seven cruise missiles were launched and went undetected by both American and Saudi radar systems. The weaponry even went unnoticed by the U.S. military base nearby, the Prince Sultan Airbase, which is guarded by an American Patriot missile defense system and over 500 U.S. military personnel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, personally, would like to go back to Russia's suggestion at the UN, that time be taken for a full, clear, and that an impartial group of forensic scientists, with no axe to grind, collectively, be brought together immediately, to determine cause and the perpetrator.

Because what the US and Saudi government are trying to do, at least from my perspective, is run with the accusation that Iran did this, attempt to control the narrative, and declare Iran the bad guy.

In this instance, taking time to analyze what has happened, with credible forensics, is absolutely the more wise course of action, whereas clumsy haste, could definitely engender World War III.

‘We don’t need aircraft carriers, we need weapons to sink them with’ – Russian defense minister

Russia’s military budget received a hike a few years ago for a massive rearmament program, but has been rolled back in recent years. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute estimated Russia to be the world’s sixth biggest defense spender in 2018, behind the US, China, Saudi Arabia, India, and France. Meanwhile, the Pentagon has been showered with money under the Trump administration, dwarfing other nations’ military budgets.

But the man in charge of the Russian Defense Ministry says his fellow Russians have no reasons to worry, because their taxpayer rubles are well spent.

“The US spends huge amounts of money on private military contractors, on aircraft carriers. Well, does Russia really need five to ten aircraft carrier strike groups, considering that we do not intend to attack anyone?” Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu told a Russian newspaper.

Corporate media desperately trying to bury the facts about Joe Biden’s corruption, bribery and money laundering

You can tell the so-called “mainstream media” is in a panic over a story that they actually started involving President Trump, former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and the eastern European country of Ukraine.

About a week ago, the MSM reported that President Trump allegedly withheld military aid from Ukraine as a way of forcing Kiev to provide evidence that former VP Biden threatened that country in 2015 to shut down a probe into a gas company in which Hunter served in a lucrative “board member” position.

There is no evidence to prove the president did that, but there is plenty of evidence to prove that Biden, not Trump, was the one who actually threatened Ukraine a few years back on behalf of the Obama administration — and specifically to have the prosecutor probing corruption within the gas company fired.

Hunter Biden Versus Joe Biden: Father and Son Contradict One Another Regarding Ukraine Scandal

Joe and Hunter Biden are contradicting each other about the extent of the former vice president’s knowledge regarding his son’s shadowy business dealings in Ukraine.
The former vice president told reporters during a campaign appearance in Iowa on Saturday that he denied ever having discussed his son’s position on the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian oil and natural gas company.

“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Joe Biden angrily told reporters, before accusing President Donald Trump of abusing his power by urging the Ukrainian government to investigate the matter.

Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas) appeared on CNN to discuss the issue.

He was responding to a clip showing reporter Peter Doocy of Fox News asking Biden this weekend if he had ever spoken to his son about his foreign business affairs.

US Embassy Declines to Comment on Denial of Visas to Russian UN Delegates

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned on Tuesday the US envoy to Moscow after it turned out that the US had failed to provide several members of the Russian delegation to the United Nations General Assembly with visas timely.

The US Embassy in Russia has declined to comment on US visa denial to members of the Russian delegation for the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), qualifying it as an isolated case.

"According to our rules, we do not comment on isolated cases of submitting applications for US visas," the embassy said in a statement.

The Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, has said that several members of the Russian delegation for the UNGA have been refused US visas. She has also refuted Washington's claims that the Russian nationals have failed to timely submit necessary documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump wants to insure that no narrative on Iran can possibly be heard, except his own, by keeping these Russian delegates out of the UN.

Book Review: The (Real) Revolution In Military Affairs

The real revolution in military affairs is the development of new types of weapons by Russia. Weapons which the U.S. can not defeat and to which it has no equivalents. The consequence of the revolution is the loss of the U.S. geo-political supremacy. One cause of this loss is at the core of Martyanov's earlier book LOSING MILITARY SUPREMACY: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning.

The new book takes an expanded view of the situation.

China, Russia, Iran ‘plan joint naval drill in international waters’

China, Russia and Iran are planning a joint naval drill in the Sea of Oman and northern Indian Ocean “soon”, a semi-official Iranian news outlet reported on Saturday, just days after the United States blamed Iran for a drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities.

General Ghadir Nezami Pour, head of international affairs and defence diplomacy of Iran’s General Staff of the Armed Forces, said the drill would take place in international waters, the Iran Press news agency reported.

“The exercises have different goals, including the exchange of tactical and military experiences, and sometimes they seek political goals which show a kind of convergence between participants,” he was quoted as saying.

“Officials at the level of defence minister, chief of staff of the armed forces and commanders of the armed forces will come to Iran in the near future and these actions reflect Iran’s active defence diplomacy,” he was quoted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that the Adults in the Bowels of Power in the US; Israel; and Saudi Arabia, are paying reasonably close attention to this evolving, shift of alliances.

And I would also like to politely point to President Trump, that these countries which have been the most maligned by him, ever since he came to office, have had a way of making such a relationship not only work militarily, but also economically.

All these countries are looking to,or already have "dumped" the US dollar in financial relationships, and are dealing with their national currencies only in their trade with each other.

Crises – the Middle-East and a few hopefully useful pointers

The Middle-East is literally exploding: the Houthis have delivered an extremely effective blow against Saudi oil production which (so they claim) has now dropped by 50% before bouncing back; there are persistent rumors that Russian Su-35S and S-400 has threatened to shoot down Israeli aircraft attacking Syria; Lebanon has declared that it will defend itself against Israeli attacks; Hezbollah has been threatening to deliver crippling strikes on Israel and even Israeli officials; Turkey has purchased Russian air defenses and says that if the USA refuses to deliver their F-35S, then Turkey will consider Su-35s and even maybe Su-57’s. Bibi Netanyahu tried to use Putin for his reelection campaign (well, he really is trying desperately to stay out of jail) but had to go home empty handed and, according to the JP, his mission was a failure.

BREAKING: Iran Will Secure Maritime Borders, Give ‘Crushing Reaction’ to Any Aggression, Navy Commander Says

Earlier, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Major General Hossein Salami, said that any country that attacks Iran would be the "main battlefield".

Iran's Navy Commander Hossein Khanzadi has said that Tehran is prepared to defend its maritime borders and will respond with a "crushing reaction" to any aggression by enemies.

Earlier, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran will not allow anyone to violate its borders. He added that the Islamic Republic extends the hand of friendship to all of its neighbours.

Iran will present a proposal to the UN on how it intends to cooperate with other countries in the region to ensure the security of the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, according to Rouhani.

Webmaster's Commentary:

 LIZ CHENEY AND THE DAUGHTERS OF CREATIVE DESTRUCTION

It is rather bizarre Liz Cheney, the daughter of Dick Cheney, would cofound Keep America Safe (now defunct) with a neocon talking head, Bill Kristol. The forever war outfit was funded by Mel Sembler, an Israel-first real estate tycoon who is a good friend of Bibi Netanyahu.
Cheney has absolutely no interest in keeping America safe. She is calling for an immediate attack on Iran.

From The Hill:

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said on Wednesday the U.S. should consider a “proportional military response” against Iran, among other potential actions, over its suspected involvement in drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil supply.
