War: What is it good for, aside from massive profits for Raytheon and Lockheed Martin and scaring your diabetic population into total submission?But sometimes war is practically inevitable, especially when friendly U.S. military helicopters are nearly blown up by Iranian gunboats in the Strait of Hormuz, which is a peaceful, international waterway between Massachusetts and Martha’s Vineyard.Take the wheel, Guardian:
UPDATE of the part describing the east-Aleppo enclave:The whole north of the Jihadist held part is liberated, some 40+% of the territory. A new map is here. Up to 10,000 civilians fled to the government areas. (This makes a joke out of the UN 250k claim.) The water pump works for all Aleppo are back in the hand of the government. Supply is to resume.End Update
In its attempt to redirect the public’s attention from its historic failure to deliver unbiased, objective, factual reporting in the context of the presidential election in which virtually every single mainstream media outlet was revealed (courtesy of the hacked Podesta emails) and acted as a Public Relations arm for the Clinton campaign, said media has opened a new can of worms by ushering in the topic of « fake news » – a purposefully vague, undefined term meant to deflect and scapegoat by « exposing » propaganda websites, which in the latest incarnation of the narrative, are now allegedly serving to further Russian propaganda in the US.
The European politics is on the cusp of change. The drift of events seems to work in Russia’s favor, auguring good times in a not-too- distant future in Russia’s ties with Europe. Most certainly, Moscow can view with satisfaction the outcome of the primary of France’s Republican party on Sunday resulting in the nomination of Francois Fillon as the candidate of the conservatives in the presidential election in May.
Hillary Clinton’s loss was a shock to the purveyors of U.S. military hegemony, who saw in her an easier path to keep the Syria conflict going. Secretary of State Clinton was instrumental in the early days of Syria intervention, in 2010 making a series of demands for Syria to get in line behind the U.S. vision for the Middle East.When Bashar al-Assad refused to roll over, regime change became the talking point of Washington think tanks and mainstream media echo chambers. Clinton promised during her campaign to ramp up action in Syria, to the delight of the same neocons who brought the Iraq invasion. She acknowledged that many civilians would die if the U.S. set up a no-fly zone.
Finally, Egypt has taken a clear stance on Syria. This is an event of great importance to drastically change the situation. Speaking on the Portuguese TV network RTP on November 22, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi publicly affirmed his support for the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
A fledgling group set up by the European Commission to allegedly counteract “Russian propaganda” is to be expanded with more public cash and resources. European citizens will be funding mechanisms inducing their own ignorance and misinformation.This week, the European Parliament in Strasbourg voted by a dubious majority for a cash injection to expand the work of a media watchdog aimed at “debunking Russian propaganda.”
The battle for one of the most contested Syrian cities in the nation’s long-running civil war, Aleppo, is approaching its climax. According to Reuters, the Syrian army and its allies announced the capture of a large swath of eastern Aleppo from rebels on Monday – by some estimates as much as 40% of the militant held part – in an accelerating attack that threatens to crush the opposition in its most important urban stronghold.In a major breakthrough in the government’s push to retake the whole city, regime forces captured six rebel-held districts of eastern Aleppo over the weekend, including Masaken Hanano, the biggest of those. On Sunday, the 13th day of the operation, they also took control of the adjacent neighborhoods of Jabal Badra and Baadeeen and captured three others.
Western countries are urging the imposition of sanctions against Russia after 80,000 civilians were liberated in Syria’s Aleppo, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said on Tuesday.He recalled that, over the past 24 hours, the Syrian army had been able to liberate from militants almost half of eastern Aleppo where 80,000 civilians reside. »Now it turned out that the release of over 80,000 Aleppo residents held hostage by gunmen was not part of the plans of the UK and French Foreign Ministries, the US Department of State and the German Bundestag. They even urged to impose new sanctions for that, » the spokesman said.
Deputies of the Russian State Duma celebrated the victory of Donald Trump in the presidential election with applause. Even six months ago, a YouGov poll of 20,000 adults from each of the G20 nations showed that Russia was the only country where people favored Donald Trump as the their presidential pick. Many observers can’t understand why, but the support was not accidental?Throughout the campaign, in speeches, debates, interviews and personally, Trump repeatedly referred to the Russian President and Russia positively. Establishing friendly relations between the two largest nuclear powers in the world, the United States and Russia, is important. And, thank God, Trump and Putin are aware of the need to establish friendly relations. Perhaps that is why they are patriots who share worldviews and mutual sympathy.
The missile drills are expected to take place on December 1-2 between 05:00 GMT and 17:00 GMT, Rosaviatsia said, adding that the launches will extend into Russia’s civil airspace and present a threat to flight safety. »So far we did not receive official statements, but there is still time, » Sokolov told reporters.The Russian air transport agency Rosaviatsia said last week that Ukraine unilaterally decided to hold missile firing exercises near Simferopol in violation of international agreements.
The US corporate media, its strings pulled by the modern version of the Central Intelligence Agency’s old Operation MOCKINGBIRD media influencing operation, is laughably accusing Russia of generating «fake news» to influence the outcome of the American presidential election.
The Russian President Vladimir Putin found himself in an altogether new role on Friday when his Turkish counterpart Recep Erdogan phoned him to lodge a complaint about Syrian military. Putin probably expected the phone call since an air attack on a Turkish contingent on November 24 in northern Syria had killed 3 Turkish soldiers and injured ten others.
Outgoing US President Obama made a big mistake calling Russia a “regional power,” the European Commission chief said in an interview. Europe, instead, should treat Russia as “one big entity and a proud nation,” and there is a lot to learn about it.“The EU occupies 5.5 million square kilometers, Russia takes up 17.5 million. Russia must be treated as one big entity, as a proud nation,” Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, the EU executive body, told Euronews on Saturday.
Having dumped hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade-plus creating an air force for Afghanistan, the Pentagon is looking to virtually re-do the entire scheme, proposing another $814 million to replace the Russian-made helicopters the US bought with American-made Black Hawk helicopters.Afghanistan’s remnant air force at the start of the US occupation included a handful of old Soviet helicopters from the Soviet occupation. With Afghanistan’s limited pilots more experienced at flying Soviet planes, the US bought a number of Mi-17 helicopters from Russia and the Czech Republic, forming the backbone of the Afghan Air Force to this day.

#BREAKING Alain Juppe concedes defeat in French presidential primary
Dear Sir/Madam/preferred gender pronoun,Do you harbor — deep in your sub-subconscious — impure thoughts, such as a perverse yearning for « isolationism/anti-interventionism » or « support for policies like Brexit » or « opposition to Ukrainian resistance to Russia and Syrian resistance to Assad »?Then you are definitely suffering from massive brain re-programming by the Russian government, which apparently controls every popular alternative media website — and a bunch of completely random websites that nobody has ever heard of, or cares about — on our beloved Internet.
It seemed like a Cold War episode. A T-90, one of Russia’s most advanced battle tanks, was hit by a US-made « tank killer » – a tube-launched, wire-guided BGM-71 TOW missile.The tank withstood a lightning-like explosion without igniting, and one of the crewmembers hastily got out of the turret.The episode may have pitted weapons produced by Cold-War rivals, but the scene took place in Aleppo in February. The tank was operated by Syrian government forces, and the TOW was launched by Hawks Mountain Brigade, an opposition group that got the TOW via Saudi Arabia or directly from the CIA, a military analyst said.
US Secretary of State John Kerry has significantly intensified contacts with Russia on Syria, the Kremlin confirmed, substantiating a report that Kerry wants to seal a deal with Moscow before Donald Trump assumes the US presidency in January.The report, by Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin, says Kerry is taking a last-ditch effort to stop the Syrian operation in eastern Aleppo, because the Trump administration may “squarely on the side of dictator [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad.”
One reader recently wrote to me, “I would really love more articles on Nazi collaborators and Saakashvili.” Well there is plenty of material. Even though Saakashvili is now leaving Ukraine, his appointment there is the first place, and the manner of his leaving, tell us a great deal about what he has been doing in that country, and for whom.
