US Has Used NATO to Maintain Hegemony Over Europe: Analyst

  • PressTV Published on Jul 13, 2018
    The NATO military alliance has helped the United States to maintain its dominance over Europe’s security and international affairs and keep the continent under its hegemony, long after the Cold War, an American analyst says. “Traditionally, ever since the NATO alliance was created back in the 1940s, the United States has essentially covered most of the cost in return for Europe’s deference to Washington with regards to international geo-political interests,” said Keith Preston, chief editor of AttacktheSystem.com. “The arraignment is that the United States essentially provides for the military defense of Europe and then Europe is expected to be deferent to the foreign policy objectives of the United States,” Preston told Press TV on Thursday. “They [US] like the fact that they are able to use the relationship between NATO and Europe to essentially exercise hegemony over Europe and the European nations are largely satellite states of the United States in this regard,” he added.

Expert: Iran Not Likely to Renegotiate Nuclear Deal, Israel Likely to Act

  • What this article (below) conveniently left out are:

    1. Israel is already the sole nuclear armed nation in the middle east.
    2. Israel has deployed its nuclear armed submarines in the Persian Gulf to attack Iran when needed.
    3. Israel has repeatedly LIED about its nuclear arsenal (300-400 nuclear bombs) and has refused to sign the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NNPT) which Iran has signed.
    4. Israel has been caught selling nuclear weapons/technology to Apartheid South Africa.

    The REAL Nuclear Armed Rogue state in the Middle East is Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit. Based on the logic of many of these war propaganda articles from the Zionist western MSM, we are totally justified to attack the Nuclear Rogue state of Israel. These people are insane for fomenting war against Iran. Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program nor nuclear bombs.
  • Expert: Iran Not Likely to Renegotiate Nuclear Deal, Israel Likely to Act
    by  , https://mtlnewsjournal.com/
    It will be very difficult to persuade Iran to renegotiate the nuclear deal despite arguments from the United States that its flaws must be addressed, said an Israeli expert on Israel-Iran relations.

    With the May 12 deadline approaching for the six world powers to approve recertification of the deal, known as the , there is concern that US President Donald Trump will follow through with his threats to tear up the agreement.

    Be the first to know – and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have both made separate visits to Washington D.C. recently to encourage Trump to remain in the deal.

    Iran and the P5+1, which consists of Great Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States, reached a comprehensive agreement in July 2015. According to the deal, Iran has agreed to halt its nuclear weapons program in exchange for economic aid and the lifting of international sanctions. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the deal.

    After the Trump administration came into power, the US continued to make threats that it would tear up the deal. Trump even went as far as to replace his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, with former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Mike Pompeo to exert more pressure on the Iranian nuclear issue. Pompeo, who was recently sworn in to his new post, then to hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, pledging to deepen the long-standing alliance and counter “Iran‘s aggression”.

    The two met at the Israeli Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, as part of Pompeo‘s first official visit to the country. Referring to Trump‘s position on the deal, Pompeo said Trump has been clear that the deal‘s flaws should be fixed, or the US will withdraw from it. Faced with mounting pressure, Iran has threatened to resume 20 percent uranium enrichment if the US leaves the deal.

    Raz Tzimmt, an expert on Israel-Iran relations, said it will be very difficult to persuade Iran to renegotiate. “I think it will be very difficult if not impossible to persuade the Iranians to renegotiate the deal. I mean the perception in Iran is that Iran has already given up some part of its capabilities during the negotiations with P5+1 and the United States. So I think it will be almost impossible to believe that under no circumstances, including more economic pressure on Iran, Iran, and especially Supreme Leader Khamenei, is going to agree for a better deal,” said Tzimmt. Tzimmt said if Iran resumes its nuclear activity, Israel will possibly take action, with military options most likely on the table.

    “In case Iran breaks out for nuclear weapons and quits the NPT and expels the IAEA inspectors from Iran, that would mean that Iran is not just after resuming its nuclear activity, but about its bomb. And then I think we could expect Israel to take more radical actions, including military options against Iran, because Israel has always made it very clear that it will not allow Iran to become a nuclear military state,” said Tzimmt.

US Forces EU into Buying American LNG

  • PressTV Published on Jul 12, 2018
    Russia accuses the United States of bullying Europe into buying American liquid natural gas. The Kremlin spokesman said President Donald Trump’s anti-Russia comments showed an escalation in the US campaign to talk down Russian gas supplies to Europe. Dmitry Peskov said the US objections to the new pipeline deal between Russia and Germany are unfair. On Wednesday, Trump criticized Germany for being what he called a captive of Russian energy. The US president also called on NATO member states to immediately do something about the matter.

136th Palestinian Killed as Gaza Protests Against Israel Enter 4th Month

Palestinian medical staff carry a wounded woman during a protest within the ‘Great March of Return’ demonstrations near Israel-Gaza border in Gaza City, Gaza on 3 July, 2018 [Ashraf Amra/Anadolu Agency]

  • 136th Palestinian Killed as Gaza Protests Against Israel Enter 4th Month
    by https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/
    A Palestinian taking part in a border protests was killed on Friday, Gazan medical officials said, bringing to 136 the number killed in the confrontations that have often drawn a lethal Israeli army response since they began on March 30.

    The Gaza Health Ministry said the 22-year-old died of a chest wound. It said Israeli shelling wounded eight people in the same location, east of Gaza City, though it was not clear if the two incidents were linked.

    Israel’s military denied shelling, saying troops used “riot dispersal means” including gunfire as they confronted 3,000 Palestinians at five points along the border fence, some rolling burning tyres and throwing rocks, and that “a number of terrorists” approached the border fence with a bomb. “The explosive device went off within the Gaza Strip and injured several Palestinians,” it said.

    The Gaza Health ministry said almost 400 people were wounded in Friday’s protests, 57 of them from live bullets. 

    Home to 2 million Palestinians, more than half of them war refugees and their descendents, Gaza has suffered deep poverty and infrastructure collapses under a 12-year blockade by Israel and Egypt, which say they aim to curb Hamas threats.

    Israel, facing international condemnation over its tactics, accuses Hamas of orchestrating the sometimes violent protests to distract from their governance problems and provide cover for armed cross-border attacks. Organisers have described the border protests as spontaneous outpourings of frustration, as has Hamas.

    The Palestinian Centre for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) , said on Wednesday that 79 percent of Palestinians want PA to lift sanctions off Gaza, with just 17 per cent saying such measures should be removed “only after Hamas fully hands over control over the Strip to the reconciliation government”.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

The Central Banks Agenda To Bring Down The Economy Has Been Exposed

  • X22Report Published on Jul 11, 2018
    The Manhattan bubble is popping, foreign investment is being redirected, the real estate crisis has begun and it will spread. Global debt has hit an all time high and it is getting worse. The rate at which debt is rising is of great concern because there will be a time when it won’t be able to be paid back. The Fed has already decided to change the rules of the game, they are now removing data and manipulating data. Just a couple days ago the Fed said the yield curve is not accurate and flawed and now the Fed has replaced the yield curve with their new version which is based on what they think the future will bring. The collapse has been exposed, change and hide data to cover their tracks.

Trump Says He ‘Thinks’ He Can Pull Out of NATO Without Congressional Approval

  • Trump Says He ‘Thinks’ He Can Pull Out of NATO Without Congressional Approval
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Speaking with journalists at the NATO summit in Brussels, Donald Trump said he “thinks” he can pull out of NATO without congressional approval. The US president made the statement when asked if he had threatened to pull out of the alliance, and whether he thought he could do so without first consulting Congress. Trump ignored the first question, but on the second question, he said, “I think I can.”

    According to Politico, Trump warned his allies behind closed doors that they would need to radically increase defense spending or the US “will do our own thing.”NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg then reportedly shifted the meeting to an allies-only emergency session, requiring European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to leave the room.


    After the emergency session, Trump said that the alliance is “very unified, very strong, no problem.” He added that NATO allies had committed to increasing their defense spending to beyond two percent of GDP, and added that pulling out of the military alliance would therefore be “unnecessary.”

    However, French President Emmanuel Macron denied Trump’s claim that all 29 member states pledged to increase spending beyond the two percent goal, and added that “President Trump never at any moment, either in public or in private, threatened to withdraw from NATO.”

    At present, only five NATO member states – the US, UK, Greece, Estonia, and Poland – allocate two percent of their GDP to defense spending, a requirement for membership. In 2017, the US spent $686 billion on defense, over double the expenditure of all 28 other states combined.

    The discrepancy in funding has been a constant source of chagrin for Trump, who has accused the other member states of not pulling their weight. In the run-up to this year’s summit, the president singled out Germany, which spends only 1.2 percent of its GDP on defense.

    Voicing his frustrations via Twitter on Thursday morning, Trump said that previous US presidents have been lobbying Germany to increase defense expenditure for years, as the US continues to foot the bill for defense against a perceived Russian threat.

Stoltenberg, Macron Insist on 2% GDP Defense Spending After Trump’s Push to Double It, Contradicting Trump

  • Stoltenberg, Macron Insist on 2% GDP Defense Spending After Trump’s Push to Double It
    by https://www.rt.com/
    French President Emmanuel Macron has denied that NATO states agreed to increase defense spending beyond previous targets, pushing back on Donald Trump’s claim, earlier on Thursday, that the alliance agreed to more ambitious plans.

    Commenting on the outcome of the two-day NATO summit, the French president said that the allies were sticking with an agreement reached in 2014, which calls for all states to spend 2 percent of their GDP on defense.

    “Everyone agreed to raise spending as they agreed in 2014, and everyone agreed to respect the commitments they made. We reaffirmed a credible budget strategy that meets our needs,”
     Macron told journalists. The French president also criticized Trump’s suggestion that the target for NATO members’ defense spending should be raised from two to four percent of GDP.


    German Chancellor Angela Merkel made a similar statement, while leaving the door open to the possibility of a new target down the road.

    “We’ll have to talk about to what extent we can do more on defense. We presented the current situation. But considering the discussion among the European allies, not only the Americans, I think we need to ask ourselves consistently what more we can do,”
     she said.


    NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg later told CNN that member states reaffirmed their commitment to the two percent of GDP target. He emphasized that NATO states should strive to invest more in defense, but stopped short of confirming Trump’s claim that the alliance had agreed to the four percent goal.
