The best test pilots in the US found out that the B-52 starts to fall apart at 400 knots when flown at a height of 300ft, so how did an unqualified novice pilot manage to fly a Boeing 757 into the Pentagon at that speed? A B-52 is a helluva lot stronger than a 757. Of […]
Savchenko has been the focus of so much attention, propaganda and outright hysteria of late that it is very difficult to wade through this morass of lies and disinfo and get even a glimpse at the truth behind her situation. The Ukrainians have built this woman up to be some kind of modern-day Joan of […]
If this story is accurate and the US arms industry is dead, then the implications are dire indeed for Americans as there is precious little industry other than arms making left in the USA – it is a warfare economy.
While 12 European countries and 24 US states have legalised the medicinal use of cannabis, the use of the plant remains strictly illegal in most countries, Serbia included.
Normally, when it comes to deciding who is more likely to be telling the truth – the BBC or the Russian Defense Ministry, it would be difficult to pick a liar, both are very well versed in the arts of disinfo. However, in this case, the BBC cites the CIA’s Stratfor front op as it’s […]
The fighting in Ukraine, despite the Minsk agreements, has never ended. Heavy weapons may have been withdrawn and the major engagements may have stopped, but at many points along the front lines there is continual low intensity fighting. For the last month of so, one of the hottest spots has been around the town of […]
This is great news because of what it signifies – that people are not just waking up to evil corporations and the dangers of GMO, but many are already awake and actively fighting back.
Three-quarters of refugees who entered Germany in 2015 are males, two thirds younger than 33 years old, with low working experience, a new study by the German national immigration service says
This presidential election has seemed to be a farce since day one to me, although I confess to being an outsider (from England) who is largely ignorant of the machinations of the US political system.
In May 1945, the Red Army, or more specifically soldiers of the 3rd Ukrainian Front and the 1st Byelorussian Front raised the red banner over the Reichstag in the centre of Berlin and brought the European theatre of ww2 to a close.
When I read this article I was so shaken by the implications that I turned to Mike Harris, our resident expert in the computing industry, for verification that it could be true.
You have to feel for the Venezuelan people, they are suffering badly due to the financial meltdown and a severe energy shortage.
One imagines there will be many face palms, prolific cursing and cries of ‘not again!’ within the halls of the Marine Corps command today as this is not the first time this has happened and just as on previous occasions, it has placed great strain on US-Japan relations.
I think we can file this one in the ‘about bloody time’ folder where we put all those things that should have been done long ago.
The US presidential contender said he would not forgive Khan for calling him “ignorant”, and challenged the Mayor to take part in an IQ test, an offer mocked by Khan’s team.
There have been many reasons put forward over the years for why the Falklands War of 1982 happened, both official and conspiratorial. It has always seemed rather dubious that Britain would launch a major amphibious task force halfway across the globe at a time of economic woe and deep defence cuts in order to save […]
The US has almost no welfare system; the schools and other public services are struggling to make ends meet and millions are unemployed. However, the govt has no problem spending hundred of millions on misguided meddling in foreign affairs. Clearly the US govt is putting BS ‘security’ concerns ahead of the needs of it’s own […]
__________ Russia Today Central banks selling off US debt at record pace In March, central banks from around the world dumped $17 billion in American Treasuries. Since the beginning of the year the sell-off has reached $123 billion, which is the quickest pace since 1978. China sold $7.7 billion in US debt in March, lowering […]
A B-52 bomber ran off the runway, aborting takeoff and catching fire during a routine training exercise.
No one doubts the power of American weapons. The United States is one of the greatest military in the world, no matter how you look at it.
Earlier this week the Turkish Foreign Minister would resign if any evidence linking Turkey with support for Islamic State was forthcoming. Here you have that evidence.
This is a recipe for disaster as Russia is understandably unhappy with NATO’s steady encroachment on its Western borders.
Erdogan seems hell-bent on overtaking Netanyahu as the greatest liar of modern times. Turkey knows exactly who is supplying the terrorists and what they are supplying because Turkey is deeply involved in supporting and supplying said terrorists and the arms and supplies pass through Turkey on their way to the head choppers.
There may be more to this story than a simple death in a DC hotel room, however it may not be the something the Daily Beast suggests of a suspicious, brutal death.
Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov that if Moscow has any evidence that shows Turkey helping the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) then he would resign.
If this guy can pull this off, it will be a major boost towards waking up those who still don’t get it that an aluminium airplane cannot damage a steel and concrete building to any great degree and the government version of 9-11 is preposterous.
Today I reported that the Russians are sending their aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, to the Mediterranean to intervene in the Syrian conflict.
Today I also reported on the supplying of advanced missiles and other weapons to the bad guys in the Syrian conflict by the Saudis and their gulf allies, weapons sold to them by the US and Europe.
Informed sources revealed that certain Persian Gulf Arab states which are customers of the western arms plan to supply the militants in Syria with state-of-the-art missiles.
Putting ICBMs onto railcars to make them both mobile and incognito seems like a perfectly logical response to the emplacement of NATO missiles close to Russia’s borders.
