Week Nine of the Russian Intervention in Syria: The Empire Strikes Back

THE SAKER DECEMBER 5, 2015 2,400 WORDS Considering the remarkable success of the Russian intervention in Syria, at least so far, it should not have come as a surprise that the AngloZionist Empire would strike back. The only question was how and when. We now know the answer to that question. On November 24th the Turkish Airforce did something absolutely unprecedented in recent history: it deliberately shot down another country’s military aircraft even though it was absolutely obvious that this aircraft presented no threat whatsoever to Turkey or the Turkish people. The Russian Internet is full of more or less official leaks about how this was done. According to these versions, the Turks maintained 12 F-16 on patrol along the border ready to attack, they were guided by AWACS aircraft and “covered” by USAF F-15s in case of an immediate Russian counter-attack. Maybe. Maybe not. But this hardly matters because what is absolutely undeniable is that the USA and NATO immediatley took “ownership” of this attack by giving their full support to Turkey. NATO went as far as to declare that it would send aircraft and ships to protect Turkey as if it had been Russia which had attacked Turkey. As for the USA, not only did it fully back Turkey, it now also categorically denies that there is any evidence that Turkey is purchasing Daesh oil. Finally, as was to be expected, the USA...

Vladimir Putin

Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly on the State of the Nation 2015   December 3, 2015 The Kremlin, Moscow Vladimir Putin delivered the Annual Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly. The Address was traditionally delivered at the Kremlin’s St George Hall before an audience of more than 1,000 people. Those present for the Address included members of the Federation Council, State Duma deputies, members of the Government, heads of the Constitutional and Supreme Courts, regional governors, heads of regional legislative assemblies, heads of Russia’s traditional religious faiths, public figures, including heads of regional civis chambers, and the heads of Russia’s biggest media outlets. * * * Citizens of Russia, members of the Federation Council, State Duma deputies, I would like to begin my Address with words of gratitude to the Russian servicemen who are fighting international terrorism. Today here in the St George’s Hall, a historic hall of Russian military glory, we have combat pilots and representatives of the Armed Forces who are taking part in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria. Gelena Peshkova and Irina Pozynich, who lost their husbands in the war against terror, have joined us too. My deepest respect to you and the parents of our heroes. I would like us all to honour the memory of the soldiers who gave their lives while doing their duty, and the memory of all Russian citizens who fell at the hands of terrorists. (Moment of silence) Colleagues, Russia has long been at the forefront of the fight against terrorism. This is a fight for freedom, truth and justice, for the lives of people and the future of the entire civilisation. We know what aggression of international terrorism is. Russia faced it back in the mid-1990s, when...

Pensar Petista

Caro Senador, Pensando com O Antagonista, como um petista esperto: “— Se os três petistas votassem em favor de Eduardo Cunha, no Conselho de Ética, a imagem do partido, que já está em ruínas, apodreceria de vez; — Votar em favor de Eduardo Cunha não significaria o fim da chantagem com o pedido de impeachment. Eduardo Cunha continuaria a usá-lo para pressionar o PT; — Se o pedido de impeachment for acolhido, o PT adiantará um destino incontornável, haja vista que os escândalos continuarão a avolumar-se e a economia, sob Dilma, não tem a menor chance de recuperação. Enfrentar a realidade é, no caso, melhor do que fugir dela; — Uma vez acolhido o pedido de impeachment, o foco passará a ser Dilma Rousseff e deixará de ser Lula e o próprio partido, se estes a abandonarem aos tubarões; — No caso do acolhimento, é melhor que Dilma Rousseff renuncie ao cargo do que permaneça sangrando, inclusive para a própria, embora ela ainda não tenha se dado conta disso. Se o motivo do impeachment forem as pedaladas fiscais, tanto melhor, porque o povão não entende exatamente o que seja isso; — Se Dilma Rousseff for saída do Planalto, o PT passará a ser oposição e poderá ter um discurso. Hoje, o partido não tem mais discurso, a não ser o da defesa que oscila entre lamurienta e agressiva. Nas...

Petistas no Conselho de Ética

Mensagem ao Senador: Petistas no Conselho de Ética Caro Senador, No início da tarde o deputado Zé Geraldo (PT) não queria “emparedar” Cunha para que Cunha não liberasse o impeachment, “o pior dos mundos”. Agora, Rui Falcão confia que “nossos deputados, no Conselho de Ética, votem pela admissibilidade…”. Para alguns, segundo o Estadão, será melhor para o governo enfrentar logo o processo de impeachment, até mesmo para acabar com as “chantagens e ameaças” de Cunha e arrefecer de vez a crise política. Mas ainda não há unanimidade… Votação no Conselho deve ficar para amanhã… Abr.,...
