Defacto “No fly zone” over Southern Turkey to be in place in 48 hours…defying NATO to react
Jim W. Dean – Russia responds to Turkish shoot down by ending military cooperation and signaling one freebie is all Turkey gets. Russia has a right, under international law, to shoot down planes attacking it while on Syrian anti-terrorism operations.

Only during the past two months has Russia taken note of the propaganda war the CIA has waged against them. When the CIA overthrew the elected but admittedly corrupt government of Ukraine and replaced it with a dictatorship, neofascists and Israeli puppets, Russia took in Crimea and kept its mouth shut, largely allowing the Russian population of Odessa and Eastern Ukraine to be slaughtered.
Russian airstrikes have torched more than 1,000 tankers taking stolen crude oil to Islamic State refineries. This blow against the jihadists comes as the Russian Air Force has hit 472 terrorist targets in two days in Syria, making 141 sorties.
Gordon Duff – We are also tired of Raytheon Corporation and its love affair with ISIS and al Nusra, supplying missiles to terrorist organizations which is not an accident. Raytheon needs to be held accountable for aiding and abetting terrorism.
Jim W. Dean – It is not Russia who needs to change her ways. It never has been. It is the US strategy of using regime change and small- and large-scale terrorism to accomplish this.
Planes from Israel and half a dozen NATO nations were in the air as little as 30 miles from the Russian passenger plane.
Jim W. Dean – The best memorial to the victims of terrorism is for the public to wise up as to who the State sponsors behind most of these killings are, and take them on. Without doing this, these memorials are meaningless, and maybe even worse.

Jim W. Dean – A 7.5 hr standoff and shoot out, with 5000 rounds of ammunition and 800 police officers, was evidence of every law enforcement agency in France wanting to get in on taking some of the credit, a three ring circus “piling on”.

Jim W. Dean – Never has so little been owed by so many to so few, as in the incompetent leadership in the wasted Western wonderland… where referring to them as statesmen is a denigration of the word.

The rattle-tattle of the guns, explosions and sounds of police sirens/ambulances and shrieks of trapped people subdued the music beats in the theatre, shouts of the jeering lovers of […]

Some of you may already be aware of this, but if like us you’re hearing about this for the first time your jaw will drop. And it’ll probably raise the same BIG questions in your mind that it did in ours.
Jim W. Dean – I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but I suspect to see a wave of EU holiday attacks by both domestic cells and immigrant arrivals, where Europeans will pay for failed leadership as we Americans have.
