Russian Prime Minister Warns There Will Be A “Permanent World War” If Saudis Invade Syria

If you’re wondering where the Saudis are getting their courage, it likely isn’t US or NATO backing, but Pakistan. Pakistan just this January threatened to wipe Iran or any other nation off the map with nuclear weapons if any harm should come to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is fed up with the US and has sought help elsewhere, even created its own islamic NATO.

 

“It’s a joke. We couldn’t wish [for] more than that. If they can do it, then let them do it — but talking militarily, this is not easy for a country already facing defeat in another war, in Yemen, where after almost one year they have failed in achieving any real victory.”

That’s what one source in the Iranian military had to say about reports that Saudi Arabia is preparing to send ground troops into Syria.

Iran Holds Nothing Back: “It’s A Weird Suicide Mission That Will Have A Very Dark End”

Earlier today we reported that Saudi Arabia has made a “final” decision to invade Syria.

The timing of the announcement quite clearly suggests that the Saudis are going to try and shore up the rebels who are facing imminent defeat at Aleppo where Hezbollah, backed by Russian airstrikes, is about to overrun the opposition. Continue reading

Turkey orders EU to hand over MORE cash or it will unleash MILLIONS of migrants on Europe

The country’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged to put huge numbers of refugees on buses and planes unless European leaders give him more money to host people arriving from Syria.

In a bombshell rant he lashed out at both the EU and UN, who have criticised his country for not opening its border to more refugees. Continue reading

Major Powers and their Wars (II)

BERLIN (Own report) – In an article published by the leading German foreign policy journal, an influential diplomat predicts that worldwide, there will be a further increase in the number of wars and their victims, this year. “The number of conflicts, their victims, and their refugees” has been increasing worldwide, for the past five years and this development will “most likely continue this year.” The journal, “Internationale Politik,” substantiates this assumption by presenting an overview of the current wars. Today’s deadliest wars – in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and South Sudan – are indeed a direct or indirect outcome of western hegemonic policies. With its military interventions or subversive support for insurgents, this policy is aimed at provoking pro-western putsches or weakening non-compliant states. “Internationale Politik” assesses the possibility of conflicts in China’s vicinity. During the years of China’s rise, western powers were unsuccessful in knitting strong ties with the resource-rich Arab world, in view of the impending power struggle with the People’s Republic of China. This power struggle is already emerging.

JPM: “Things Have Gotten Out Of Control: People Have More Confidence In Gold Than In Paper Money”

Please see the source for the video.

 

Following the biggest one-day surge in the price of gold since 2009, it is understandable that suddenly everyone who until recently was predicting the price of gold in the triple digits, or laughably explaining why “gold is doomed” wants to talk about the “pet rock.” As we showed earlier, already Goldman and Bank of America have opined with new and upwardly mobile “price targets”, while the scramble to obtain gold in a world drowning not only in negative rates but soon, cash bans, has already been unleashed.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov: We Will Not At This Time Be Returning To Nuclear Arms Reduction Talks With U.S. Under ‘New START’ Treaty

Meanwhile, Russia and China’s military space programs have expanded, as well as having space weapons already deployed. The U.S., if it were to deploy, would be the third to weaponize space. Yet, as we see again, Russia continues to portray an-already suicidally disarming America as the bully. This is the propaganda and word game readers need to be aware of.

Here are two such examples of Russian and Chinese weaponization of space:

Mysterious Actions of Chinese Satellites Have Experts Guessing

 

To mark the fifth anniversary of the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), which was signed in April 2010 and came into force on February 5, 2011, U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice stated: “We look forward to full implementation of the Treaty and continue to call on Russia to answer the President’s invitation five years ago to begin talks on further reductions to our nuclear arsenals.”[1]

Several Russian media outlets reported on statements by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov to the effect that Russia will not at this time be returning to nuclear arms reduction talks with the U.S.    Continue reading
