Putin warns Turkey there will be ‘serious consequences’ for ‘stabbing Russia in the back’ by shooting down one of its jets… as video emerges of rebels chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ over the body of dead pilot


Conflicting stories: Turkey claims they shot the plane down as it was violating the country’s airspace after the pilots ignored ‘ten warnings in the space of five minutes’, but Russia says the jet was in Syrian airspace



  • Turkish army has shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 war plane near its Syrian border, officials confirm
  • The Russian jet had violated Turkish air space and ignored ten warnings in five minutes, army says
  • Putin called Turkey’s decision to shoot down the plane a ‘stab in the back by the terrorists’ accomplices’
  • Russia claims the jet, which crashed in Syria’s Turkomen Mountains, had been in Syrian airspace when it was hit
  • In response, Turkish army released flight tracking data showing where the jet violated its airspace
  • One pilot dead, the other reportedly captured by Turkmen – ethnic Turks subjected to Russian airstrikes this week

Turkey’s military have today shot down a Russian war plane near its border with Syria after the jet violated Turkish air space.

The Russian Sukhoi Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkish F-16 fighter planes after ignoring nearly a dozen warnings, Turkish army officials said.

President Vladimir Putin called Turkey’s decision to down the plane a ‘stab in the back by the terrorists’ accomplices’, as his Defence Ministry still claims the jet was in Syrian airspace.

‘The loss we suffered today came from a stab in the back delivered by accomplices of the terrorists,’ President Putin said, speaking at a meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan in Sochi, Russia, on Thursday afternoon. Continue reading

Is Egypt About to Fall Into Chaos—Again?

The crash of a Russian airliner in the Sinai Peninsula is just the latest weight on the shoulders of Egypt’s beleaguered President Sisi.

For Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, it could not have come at a worse time.

On Saturday, October 31, a passenger plane carrying mostly Russian nationals fell from the sky over the Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 on board. Initially, the Egyptian government (as well as the Russian) did their best to quell any suggestion that terrorism was the cause. Yet within a week, the United Kingdom had halted flights in and out of the popular tourist destination of Sharm el-Sheikh, declaring that the crash was most likely the result of a bomb on board.

Britain Warns Germany Against Europe Split Over Currency Union

Frau Merkel dropped a big hint three years ago that she has no problem with a two-speed Europe, and even endorses the idea. This yet another signal that the greatest heist of all time is well under way.


UK Chancellor George Osborne has warned his German counterpart Wolfgang Schäuble that the European Union is in danger of splitting into two, with those in the Eurozone exerting authority over those countries who are not part of the Eurozone.

The news comes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted there was no longer a “one speed Europe”.

Osborne has made it clear he believes there is a genuine possibility that the 19 countries currently in the Eurozone will exert undue influence over those member states — such as the UK, Denmark and Hungary, among others — which are not part of the euro single currency. In outlining his demands for “legal guarantees” as part of renegotiating Britain’s membership of the European Union. Continue reading

Europe, Still Angry at U.S. Spying, Prepares to Increase Its Own

It’s been said here often enough that the only scandal is the fake outrage at the NSA and America. This isn’t to say that the espionage never happened, but the reaction is purposely blown out of proportion to steer public opinion. The NSA has worked hand-in-hand with the German government for decades. German law does not permit the state to spy on its own citizens and therefore has contracted with the NSA to do the Bundesnachrichtendienst’s domestic dirty work. The underlying motive for the fake outrage is that Germany’s Fourth Reich, who now has recaptured Europe and established itself as the regional hegemon, wants the United States out. Therefore, you will see overblown and manufactured scandals such as these.


Just as the United States is taking a first step toward placating European privacy concerns about U.S. surveillance, several European countries are passing laws dramatically expanding their own spy programs.

The House last month passed the Judicial Redress Act, intended to extend some privacy protections to foreign citizens. Meanwhile, the French Senate just passed one of the broadest international surveillance bills in the world and several other European countries are moving in a similar direction. Continue reading

Britain Bows to China

What Britain’s rapturous reception of President Xi shows about its future

Have Britain and America ever been more divided over any foreign-policy issue in the past 100 years than they are right now over China?

Consider the last fortnight. America has finally decided to confront China over its island grabs in the South China Sea. The Chinese government has responded by writing in its state media that it is “not frightened to fight a war with the U.S.” and that China must now “prepare for the worst.”

Meanwhile Chinese President Xi Jinping has just returned from his state visit to the United Kingdom, where the nation rolled out the reddest of red carpets. British officials joined their Chinese counterparts in proclaiming a “golden era” in British-Chinese relations. The Chinese state media called it an “ultra-royal welcome.”

ISIS plotting ‘MASS CASUALTY’ attack on Britain: MI5 boss warns of GREATEST ever threat

And the stark reality is, as MI5 admits, is that not all attacks can be stopped.


ISIS are planning a ‘mass casualty’ attack on Britain, the head of MI5 revealed last night as the UK now faces threats at home, from overseas and online on a scale he had not seen before in his career.

Delivering the Lord Mayor of London’s annual defence and security lecture, director general Andrew Parker said that it thwarted six terrorism attacks in the UK and “several” plots abroad in the past year.

“We are seeing plots against the UK directed by terrorists in Syria; enabled through contacts with terrorists in Syria; and inspired online by ISIL’s sophisticated exploitation of technology.

Who’s Really Isolated? Iran Set To Join BRICS Bank, Strengthen Ties With Brazil



As US hegemony wanes in the face of dysfunctional domestic politics, foreign policy confusion, and a “lead from behind” mentality, the world has begun to transition towards a kind of new world order both politically and economically.

On the geopolitical front, we’ve seen a resurgent Russia take charge in Syria after the situation spiraled out of control, leaving hundreds of thousands dead and creating the worst migrant crisis in Europe’s history.

On the economic front, the BRICS nations have embarked on a series of projects designed to supplant the US-led multinational institutions that have dominated the post-war world. Continue reading

Every yuan’s a winner: Xi Jinping’s UK visit boosts London’s role in offshore yuan market, leverages expertise for internationalisation

President Xi Jinping’s state visit to Britain is already showing signs of boosting financial cooperation between the two countries.

London hopes the visit can help it gain competitiveness over rivals such as Singapore and Luxemburg by boosting its role in the offshore yuan market, while China hopes to use Britain’s financial expertise to push for the currency’s internationalisation. Continue reading

The Challenge for the Next President: Reversing the Decline in U.S. Power

A top priority for the next President of the United States must be to demonstrate the strength and confidence to protect the nation’s vital interests at home and abroad. These vital interests are: (1) defense of the homeland; (2) prevention or successful conclusion of a major war with the potential to destabilize regions of critical interest to the U.S.; and (3) preservation of freedom of movement within the global commons: the sea, the air, cyberspace, and outer space domains through which the world conducts business.[1]

There is clearly a need to do something different. The Heritage Foundation’s Index of U.S. Military Strength graded the ability of the United States to protect its vital interests as “marginal,” an assessment that reflects both deteriorating U.S. capabilities and rising concerns in key parts of the world.[2] Further, it is clear that this Administration’s approach to defense and foreign policy is deeply flawed.[3] In practice, it has served the nation poorly.

Extremist ‘infiltration’ in hospitals, schools and civil service to be investigated

David Cameron has launched a major review into whether Islamist extremists have infiltrated the NHS, the civil service, local authorities and the country’s education system.

The Prime Minister has ordered officials to carry out an investigation to make sure British institutions are protected from the threat of “entryism” by radicals.

The Sickness in Britain’s Heart

From 2006 with relevancy today:

The British have enabled extremist Islamism to infect their nation from within. It threatens to do them in.

The soldiers are microscopic, but it’s a war just the same. Under constant assault by pathogens, the human body stakes its life on the multi-layered defenses of its immune system. Every millimeter of a man is a battleground. The border guards, messengers, warriors and generals are skin, lymph, mucus, antibodies, bone marrow and hormones, each with amazingly proficient means of detecting, destroying and dispatching anything that would jeopardize the home they exist only to defend.

If this unseen militia cannot carry out its mission, germs and toxins attack the system and trigger sickness and disease. When immunity is sufficiently disabled, a person faces certain death.

Such is the sick state of Britain today.

‘America is a bomb waiting to explode’

As anti-American as the state-owned (Kremlin) propaganda outlet RT is, there couldn’t be more truth behind this article:

The United States is in decline. While not all major shocks to the system will be devastating, when the right one comes along, the outcome may be dramatic.

Not all explosives are the same. We all know you have to be careful with dynamite. Best to handle it gently and not smoke while you’re around it.

Semtex is different. You can drop it. You can throw it. You can put it in the fire. Nothing will happen. Nothing until you put the right detonator in it, that is.

To me, the US – and most of the supposedly free West – increasingly looks like a truck being systematically filled with Semtex.

But it’s easy to counter cries of alarm with the fact that the truck is stable – because it’s true: you can hurl more boxes into the back without any real danger. Absent the right detonator, it is no more dangerous than a truckload of mayonnaise.

But add the right detonator and you’re just one click away from complete devastation. Continue reading

War games: Britain defies Putin with deployment of 900 troops along RUSSIAN border

The significant military build up along Poland’s frontier with the former Soviet nation is part of a planned Nato training exercise.

Around 900 UK personnel and 350 vehicles – part of the British Army’s Lead Armoured Battle Group – crossed Europe to take part in Exercise Dragon 15 on the plains of north east Poland, just 60 miles from the border with the Russian state of Kaliningrad Oblast.

ISIS could wipe out Christianity in Iraq in just FIVE YEARS

Iraqi christians, commonly known as Assyrian Christians, currently face two options, flee or suffer death at the hands of ISIS.

Christians lived peacefully in Iraq since the religion was founded, up until 2013. But when ISIS barbarians stormed the country in 2014 and declared the land as part of their Caliphate, they forced out or murdered Christians.  Continue reading
