The US Bipartisan rearmament against Russia , by Manlio Dinucci

Every day the Democrats attack the Republican Trump for his war-mongering statements. Yet they have got together with the Republicans in the Senate and voted to increase the Pentagon’s budget to 700 billion dollars in 2018. This is 60 billion more than what Trump had actually requested. If you add the 186 billion per year for veterans and other heads, the US’s total military expenditure jumps to around 1,000 billion. This is a quarter of the federal budget.

The unanimous vote of the Senate Armed Services Committee (“the Committee”) formed of 14 Republican Senators and 13 Democrats is decisive. The Committee emphasises that “the United States must strengthen its deterrence against Russian aggression. Russia continues to occupy Crimea, destabilize Ukraine, threaten our NATO allies, violate the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, and bolster the Assad regime in Syria.”

Furthermore, the Committee accuses Russia of leading “an unparalleled attack on our core interests and values”, in particular through “an active, purposeful campaign to undermine the integrity of American democracy.”

A true and proper declaration of war, by which the bipartisan alliance motivates empowering the entire war machine. These are some of the heads of expenditure in fiscal year 2018 (which started on 1 October 2017):

• 10.6 billion dollars to purchase 94 F-35 bomber fighters; 24 more F-35s than the Trump Administration requested;

• 17 billion for an “anti-missile shield” and military activities in space; 1.5 billion more than the figure requested by the Administration;

• 25 billion to build another 13 war ships – 5 billion more than what the Administration requested.

The Budget for 2018 is 700 billion. 640 billion is principally to buy new arms and to maintain military personnel (now 141 billion per annum following an increase in their pay). The remaining 60 billion then goes towards military operations in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Furthermore, 1.8 billion is allocated to training and fitting out armed formations under US command in Syria and Iraq, and 4.9 billion for the “Afghanistan Security Forces Fund”. For the “Initiative for European Reassurance”, that the Obama Administration launched in 2014 following “resurging Russian aggression in Ukraine”, 4.6 billion is allocated in 2018: this serves to grow the presence of US armoured forces and the “strategic advanced positioning” of US arms in Europe. Furthermore, 500 million dollars has been earmarked to provide “lethal assistance” (i.e. arms) to Ukraine.

The increase in the Pentagon’s budget tracks that of other members of the US-led Nato. One of these Nato members is Italy whose military expenditure will have to increase from 70 million euro per day (the current expenditure) to 100 million euro per day. At the same time, the Pentagon’s budget presents what is being prepared for Italy. Among the heads of minor expenses, but not for this reason less important, is 27 million dollars for the Aviano base; more evidence that it continues its empowering in light of the installation of the new B61-12 nuclear bombs, and 65 million for a research and development programme for “a new missile with land base of intermediate range to begin to reduce the capacity threshold triggered by Russian violation of the INF treaty”. In other words, the United States’ agenda includes lining up in Europe nuclear missiles like the Pershing 2 and the Cruise missiles of the eighties. At that time, the latter also stationed in Comiso, Italy.

So this is what the US Senate is announcing, speaking through the unanimous bipartisan vote of its Armed Services Committee.

Russia Warns: Investments In Bitcoin Riskier Than Gambling

SOCHI, October 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Economic Development Minister Maxim Oreshkin compared investment in bitcoin with gambling and stressed that in case with crypto currency there are more risks.

He voiced his opinion speaking at the International Festival of Youth and Students in Sochi.

“As for bitcoin: if you look at how the value of this asset fluctuates, it’s dozens of percent points up, dozens down. A normal asset that can bring money to eligible investors should not have such characteristics, since it’s worse than a casino,” the minister said.

  1. Bitcoin Price Value Drops After China Outlaws Bitcoin Exchanges: JP Morgan Then Pumps It Back Up With Euros

According to Oreshkin, an investor who does not know how to manage risks should not have the opportunity to invest in instruments with such volatility.

“In 99.9% of cases this leads to losses,” he concluded.

Bitcoin launched in January 2009 is the most well-known cryptocurrency [neither a currency or a coin] in the world. Bitcoins represent “virtual money,” being a program online code not regulated by any country or banking supervision authority [but rather by centralized elitists]. It [blockchain NOT bitcoin] can guarantee complete anonymity of a person or a group of people using it.

Russia has plans to develop a domestic virtual currency, Deputy Chairperson of the Bank of Russia Olga Skorobogatova said earlier at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Earlier this month, head of the Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina said that the regulator does not consider it feasible to legalize crypto currencies on Russian exchanges. But the regulator plans to study ways of using crypto currencies, she added.

Russia’s Finance Ministry proposed legalizing transactions with bitcoin only on exchanges and only for eligible [means known] investors.

India & Russia Military Exercises October 20th Involving 3 Armed Force Branches: The Pacific Fleet, Aviation Units & Ground Forces

VLADIVOSTOK, October 16. /TASS/. A detachment of Indian Navy warships will arrive in Vladivostok, the home port of the Russian Pacific Fleet, for the Indra-2017 Russian-Indian drills, Pacific Fleet Spokesman Nikolay Voskresensky told reporters on Monday.

“The solemn ceremony of meeting a detachment of Indian Navy ships will take place at the 33rd berth of Vladivostok’s Korabelnaya Embankment. Taking part in it will be representatives of the Russian Navy command, the crews of the vessels taking part in the exercises, an honor guard company and the orchestra of the Pacific Fleet Staff,” he said.

Russia’s Air Force Kill Over 30 U.S. Israeli Terrorist-ISIS Ringleaders In Syria

Russian Air Force

MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. Russia’s Aerospace Forces have killed more than 30 terrorist ringleaders since the beginning of October, the chief of the Main Operations Department of Russia’s General Staff, Sergey Rudskoy, said.

“Special attention was paid to destroying the heads of armed groups. Since early October, ~ 31 of them have been killed,” the general said.

According to the general, on October 3, the leader of Jabhat al-Nusra, Abu Mohammad al-Julani, was seriously wounded, and its security chief Ahmad al-Gizai and several field commanders were killed.

Rudskoi also said that Russian Aerospace Force had made 383 sorties near Deir ez-Zor over the past week and destroyed 993 targets of so-called Islamic State (a terrorist group banned in Russia).

“Over the past week, only near Deir ez-Zor warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Force have made 383 combat sorties and destroyed 993 targets of ISIS terrorists [former name of Islamic State – TASS],” he said.

Rudskoy added that three intensive missile and air strikes had hit terrorists’ vital facilities with air-to-surface cruise missiles Kh-101 launched from a TU-95 strategic bomber and Kalibr cruise missiles launched from submarines.

“Long-range precision weapons destroyed 37 targets, namely munitions depots, areas with a high concentration of militants and vehicles along with terrorists’ communication units and command centers,” he added.

According to Rudskoi, less than eight percent of Syria’s territory are still controlled by Islamic State.

“As of today, an area of 14,800 square kilometers, or less than eight percent of the Syrian territory, is under control of Islamic State,” he said.

The Russia air force will continue its operation against militants of Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups until they are completely eliminated, the general said.

The Russian General Staff does not rule out repeated attacks by Jabhat al-Nusra (a terror organization outlawed in Russia) militants over the city of Hama, and appropriate measures are being taken.

He noted that after a September 19 attack by Jabhat al-Nusra militants over positions of the government forces near Hama, the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone was stabilized. “Today, deployment of ceasefire control forces has started directly in the zone,” Rudskoy said.

However, the general noted, “Jabhat al-Nusra groups and gangs beholden to it are being deployed from the northern districts of the Idlib Governorate to the south and the southeast.” “Repeated attacks by militants over the city of Hama are possible,” Rudskoy said.

“Syria’s forces and aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces are taking all measures to prevent spread of armed groups from the given de-escalation zone,” the general stressed.

He reiterated that on September 19 Jabhat al-Nusra attacked positions of the Syrian forces north and northeast of Hama. The offensive was brought to a halt and terrorists pushed back to their release points. Terrorists incurred substantial damages: the government forces killed 2,400 militants and destroyed 27 tanks, 21 multiple rocket launchers, 14 infantry fighting vehicles, 160 pickup trucks and 25 mortars.

Syrian Forces take positions at the top of Mount Annan overlooking the Tishrin dam, after they captured it on Saturday from US Israeli Islamic State terrorists, south of Kobani, Syria December 27, 2015.

Syrian army’s success

The Syrian government troops were able to repel the attacks by 3,000 terrorists in late September and break the blockade of the road to Es Sukhne, according to Rudskoi.

“In late September, the chieftains of the ISIS made the attempt of a large-scale counter-offensive into the depth of the Syrian territory, which involved about 3,000 militants. This grouping was created also through the re-deployment of detachments from Iraq,” Rudskoi said.

“Currently, the operation to liberate the city and free the road has been completed and all the terrorist formations have been eliminated,” the Russian general said.

According to Rudskoi, “over a thousand terrorists with tanks, multiple launch rocket systems and artillery crossed the Syrian border near the town of Abu Kamal from the Iraqi provinces of Anbar and Nineveh where the operation of the US-led coalition is under way” while another 450 IS militants attacked the government troops’ positions from the area near the community of Al Tanf.

Separate terrorist groups were still able to blockade the Es Sukhne – Deir ez-Zor road and also advance towards the town of al-Karatain, the general said.

“As a result of decisive operations by the government troops with the support of the Russian air task force, the terrorists failed to achieve their goals and the ISIL counter-offensive was thwarted while the terrorists’ main forces were eliminated,” the head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department said.

The engineer units of the Syrian army have laid out three pontoon and one bridge ferries across the Euphrates with the help of Russian military specialists to provide for the uninterrupted logistics supplies of the grouping and deliver humanitarian aid to civilians, the Russian general said.

The general also said that Syria’s government forces had entered Mayadin, the largest city under control of the Islamic State.

“Over the past 10 days, the units of General Hassan Sukhel have entered Mayadin, which remains the major settlement that is under control of ISIL (former name of IS),” Rudskoy said.

In Mayadin, in eastern Syria’s Deir ez-Zor Governorate, the terrorists planned to set up a powerful fortified region and pulled in their most combat-effective forces. “Currently, the city is fully seized and the operation to liberate its central quarters is about to be completed,” he said.

Syrian government troops have also completely eliminated Islamic State units near the city of Akerbat. In all, militants have been driven out of 57 populated localities over the past month, Rudskoi said.

“In central Syria, government troops have completely eliminated Islamic State units besieged near the city of Akerbat. Over the past month, Islamic State terrorists have been driven out of 57 populated localities,” he said, adding that government control has been established over an area of 236 square kilometers.

Apart from that, de-escalation zones continue to function in southern Syria, in Eastern Ghouta and ion the north of the province of Homs, and near Tell Rifaat. “Russian military police officers are ensuring the observance of the ceasefire in these zones,” Rudskoi said.

Russia is arming the Islamic world with State of the Art Weapons









 






While we have been quite defensive of Russia for being a sovereign state minding their own business what they are doing now is totally unacceptable and scandalous!

After arming Syria with state of the art S-300 missile defense systems, they then went on and armed Iran with the same weapons despite a UN ban prohibiting Russia from selling such powerful weapons to Iran.

Now guess what Putin is doing! He is now arming Turkey which is a strong anti-European country threatening to conquer Europe with S-400 missiles and perhaps even S-500!!! These are the most powerful missile defense systems in the world.

Sure they are for defense, not for attack, YET has Russia so easily forgotten when Turkey downed their SU-24 bomber in Syria and refused to issue a simple apology?

Has Russia already forgotten about the Russo-Turkish war from 1877-1878 that ended the Ottoman Empire and their imperialism in Eastern Europe? Russia was a Christian liberator back then, now they seem obsessed with befriending Muslims.

Now shortly after Turkey, Russia is looking to arm Saudi Arabia with S-400 missiles of all places, a Wahhabi country in which no one has any rights, especially women.

What the hell is wrong with Vladimir Putin? Why is he arming all those Muslims who then come to Europe and conduct terrorist attacks?

Putin is arming all those Islamic states and he is proud of his country’s friendship with them, all while at the same time he is at open conflict with America and the European Union who are naturally Russia’s brother countries who share the same Christian religion, the same traditions, cultures and the same white European race of people.

Why does Russia has to be the black sheep all the freaking time? Just 50 years ago while the entire world was democratic they were communists, now they are Muslim supporters. Unbelievable!

Instead of being friends with Europe and America, Putin is their enemy. Why is Russia arming all those Muslim countries who are opposing the white Christian world?

Someone most stop Putin and these weapons must not reach the hands of those evil barbarians!

‘Return to sanity’: Gorbachev calls for US-Russia summit amid fears of nuclear treaty collapse

“This December will mark the 30th anniversary of the signing of the treaty between the Soviet Union and United States on the elimination of intermediate- and shorter-range missiles…” the former Soviet leader wrote in an opinion piece for The Washington Post, referring to the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. 

He went on to note the merits of the deal, citing the fact that Russia and the US reported in 2015 that 80 percent of the nuclear warheads accumulated during the Cold War had been decommissioned or destroyed.

However, Gorbachev – who led the Soviet Union from 1985 to 1991 – said the agreement is now “in jeopardy.”

“It has proved to be the most vulnerable link in the system of limiting and reducing weapons of mass destruction. There have been calls on both sides for scrapping the agreement,” he wrote.

Gorbachev stated that both Russia and the US have “raised issues of compliance, accusing the other of violating or circumventing the Treaty’s key provisions…”

“Relations between the two nations are in a severe crisis,” he said, noting the importance of establishing “a dialogue based on mutual respect.”

The former Soviet leader said that it is up to US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to “take action,” and called on both countries to hold a summit to focus on “the problems of reducing nuclear weapons and strengthening strategic stability.” 

Once again noting the importance of the INF Treaty, Gorbachev warned that scrapping the deal could result in a collapse of the “system of nuclear arms control,” which would lead to “disastrous” consequences.

Gorbachev referred to today’s “troubled world” and said it was “disturbing” that US-Russia relations have “become a serious source of tensions and a hostage to domestic politics.” 

“It is time to return to sanity,” he wrote.

Signed at a 1987 summit meeting between Gorbachev and then-US President Ronald Reagan, the INF Treaty obligated both sides to eliminate their short- and intermediate-range missiles. It came into force on June 1, 1988.

The Treaty allowed for hundreds of nuclear-tipped missiles that were deployed in Europe to be scrapped amid the Cold War arms race.

The editorial comes just days after former US Defense Secretary William Perry warned that relations between Washington and Moscow have entered a “new Cold War,” and that current conditions could lead to global conflict.

Turkish troops coordinate actions in Idlib, Syria with Russia – prime minister

Ankara is coordinating its actions in the Syrian Idlib province with Moscow, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Sunday, according to NTV. Turkey “will ensure security in Idlib, and we are working with Russia,” Yildirim said. The statement comes a day after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkish Army forces were preparing to join the efforts spearheaded by the Free Syrian Army to drive Islamists out of the area.

Google Adsense bans Russia’s RT from Youtube









 






The move by Google to expunge RT from its premium advertising service without any prior notice is “absolutely unacceptable” but will not have an adverse effect on the channel’s outreach or its profits, RT Deputy Editor-in-Chief Kirill Karnovich-Valua said.

RT, with millions of subscribers across its channels, has for years been ahead of the competition as the most viewed TV news network on YouTube, setting several records since it registered on the platform in 2007. Last month, the RT network hit another milestone after its multi-language videos were watched over 5 billion times.

RT Deputy Editor-in-Chief Kirill Karnovich-Valua expressed regret over the lack of communication from Google, which failed to properly notify RT of this important update.

“RT has been Google’s premium partner since 2010 and accredited to an official status of the most watched TV news network on YouTube. The fact that RT is no longer included in the Google Preferred advertising list in the US in itself does not affect RT distribution and monetization on the platform.

“Yet, it is absolutely unacceptable that, while there were no notifications of any policy changes sent to RT, such internal info appears to have been leaked to the US media by Google.

“This speaks to the unprecedented political pressure increasingly applied to all RT partners and relationships in a concerted effort to push our channel out of the US market entirely, and by any means possible.”

The report that Google had removed RT from its ad package was first carried by Bloomberg, which cited Alphabet Inc.’s spokeswoman as its source.

According to the publication, the move is linked to the Senate investigation into the Kremlin’s alleged role in Donald Trump’s election as president of the US.

Since a declassified report by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) into alleged Russian meddling was published in January, RT has been propelled to the center stage of the investigation, making it the target of a witch hunt.

Google Preferred aggregates the most popular content on the video hosting service using algorithms that assess the popularity of the channel, a YouTube spokesperson told Kommersant.

“The service provides advertisers access to 5 percent of the most popular content. The list of channels on Google Preferred varies dynamically and is updated regularly.”

According to the spokesperson, channels that have been removed from its ad package “can return to Google Preferred with future updates.”

In September, the US Department of Justice sent a letter to the company that supplies all services for RT America, demanding that it register as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). The request risks compromising the personal data of employees and “may pose a real danger” to their safety “in the witch hunt atmosphere which has been established in the US,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated last week.

Meanwhile, no proof of RT’s alleged influence on the 2016 US election has been provided.

“RT was mentioned in the report over 100 times, but not a single example of election interference was given,” Zakharova added.

In the hunt for “Russian meddling,” US lawmakers have recently shifted their focus to social media, with Google, Twitter, and Facebook called to testify before Congress.

Eliminated by Russia: Al-Qaeda’s Chief of Staff in Syria

The Russian Defense Minister has confirmed it bombed a meeting of Al-Qaeda’s the chief of staff in Syria. 60 members (12 of which hold key positions) of the organization were killed and its commander-in-chief, Abu Mohammed al-Joulani (see photo) seriously injured.

Al-Joulani is an Al-Qaeda combatant who was a US prisoner in Camp Bucca (Iraq). Upon his release, he joined the Islamic State in Iraq, organized by the American, John Negroponte. Then he follows the organization when it relocated to Syria (his country of origin). However he does not follow the Caliph when the later breaks away from al Qaeda. The US offered 10 million dollars for his capture.

Currently there are three main jihadist coalitions in Syria:

- the pro-Turks (Free Syrian Army);

- the pro-Qatari (Hayat Tahrir al-Cham / Al-Qaeda); and

- the pro-Deep State (Daesh).

Hayat Tahrir al-Cham has denied that Abu Mohammed al-Joulani was wounded and mutilated, just like Daesh had denied the death of its caliph, Abou Bakr al-Baghdadi. The latter died on 28 May 2017, also during a Russian bombing before his voice was resuscitated in the pro-US media.

Russian MP known for ‘anti-gay’ law seeks to ban sex change operations in Russia

At present there is not a single valid medical reason for surgical operations aimed at changing the sex of an adult person. All physiological deviations or illnesses can be removed or cured at an early age once they are diagnosed by doctors,” reads an explanatory note attached to the bill, as quoted by RIA Novosti.

Milonov maintains that the current situation needs to be corrected, and for this he proposes passing a law that would completely ban sex change operations in Russia, as well as “any other actions that are aimed at changing a person’s sex through surgery.” This could even apply to the work of middlemen who find Russian clients for foreign sex change clinics.

The MP emphasized in his explanation that the bill is based on the opinions of the medical community. “Making such operations contradicts the very essence of the medical profession – after such procedures, patients face shorter life expectancy, health problems, and increased risk of suicide,” he wrote.

MP Vitaly Milonov is best known as the main sponsor of the Russian law that bans the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations to minors, dubbed the “gay propaganda ban” by the media. However, he has gained even more notoriety by numerous legislative initiatives that never became laws, such as a ban on child beauty pageants, criminalizing prostitution, and introducing fines for fake accounts on social media networks.

Milonov’s trademark is still the relentless anti-gay campaign. He has called for all Apple products in Russia to be banned because the company is headed by openly gay CEO Tim Cook.

In September, Milonov announced a bill introducing fines for, and out-of-court blocking of, websites that knowingly distribute fake news, claiming that such media outlets are tools for informational and psychological influence used for destabilizing the country and threatening the information security of Russia.
