Italy Says No ‘Plan B’ as EU Demands Unprecedented Budget Revision

  • Italy Says No ‘Plan B’ as EU Demands Unprecedented Budget Revision
    by , , and , https://www.bloomberg.com/
    * Conte says Italy won’t accept substantial changes to budget
    * EU rejects budget of member state for first time ever

    Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte insisted his government has no “Plan B” for its budget as the European Union demanded unprecedented changes to bring the country into line with spending rules.

    While EU commissioners were discussing Italy’s violations at a meeting in Strasbourg Tuesday, Conte said in a Bloomberg News interview that he was looking forward to explaining the 2019 budget to them. He suggested that Italy has some leeway to tweak aspects of the plan, but not actual spending. If he is asked to change the substance, “it will be difficult for me because I cannot accept that.”

    Hours later the European Commission, the bloc’s executive arm, officially rejected the budget and asked Italy to take back, revise and resubmit its plans — the first time such demands have been made of a member state.

    “There isn’t any B plan,” Conte said in the interview in English at his Rome office. “I said that the deficit at 2.4 percent of GDP is the cap. I can say this will be our cap,” he said.

Israel Deploys Over 60 Battle Tanks, Armoured Vehicles Near Gaza. Military Action is Expected Soon

  • Israel Deploys Over 60 Battle Tanks, Armoured Vehicles Near Gaza. Military Action is Expected Soon
    by https://southfront.org/
    The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and the country’s leadership are openly preparing for a military operation against the Palestinain movement Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

    During the past week, the IDF deployed over 60 battle tanks and armoured vehicles as well as additional troops in the area near a security fence at the contact-line between the Israeli-controlled area and the Gaza Strip. Earlier, Israel also declared a new policy towards Gaza officially allowing stronger military actions against any “hostile” actions by the protestors or Hamas.

    Meanwhile, the Israeli top leadership is openly calling for an invasion in Gaza. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman is among the key supporters of the operation.

    Wars are only conducted when there is no choice, and now there is no choice,” Lieberman told the parliament on October 22.

    He repeatedly claimed that Tel Aviv had exhausted the “other options” to stabilize the sitaution. So now, it’s time for a military action. It’s intersting to note that the current Israeli-Pakestinian escalation as well as sky-high tensions in the Middle East in general started from a decision of the US administration to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. The developing escalation in Gaza is just one of the consequences of these decisions.

It Is Like A Western Movie: A Showdown Is In The Making — USA vs Russia

WW3 is near?

  • It Is Like A Western Movie: A Showdown Is In The Making
    by Paul Craig Roberts, https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/
    It has taken the US military/security complex 31 years to get rid of President Reagan’s last nuclear disarmament achievement—the INF Treaty that President Reagan and Soviet President Gorbachev achieved in 1987.

    The Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was ratified by the US Senate on May 27, 1988 and became effective a few days later on June 1. Behind the scenes, I had some role in this, and as I remember what the treaty achieved was to make Europe safe from nuclear attack by Soviet short and intermediate range missiles, and to make the Soviet Union safe from US attack from short and intermediate range US nuclear missiles in Europe. By restricting nuclear weapons to ICBMs, which allowed some warning time, thus guaranteeing retaliation and non-use of nucular weapons, the INF Treaty was regarded as reducing the risk of an American first-strike on Russia and a Russian first-strike on Europe, strikes that could be delivered by low-flying cruise missiles with next to zero warning time.

    When President Reagan appointed me to a secret Presidential committee with subpoena power over the CIA, he told the members of the secret committee that his aim was to bring the Cold War to an end, with the result that, in his words, “those God-awful nuclear weapons would be dismantled.” President Reagan, unlike the crazed neoconservatives, who he fired and prosecuted, saw no point in nuclear war that would destroy all life on earth. The INF Treaty was the beginning, in Reagan’s mind, of the elimination of nuclear weapons from military arsenals. The INF Treaty was chosen as the first start because it did not substantially threaten the budget of the US military/security complex, and actually increased the security of the Soviet military. In other words, it was something that Reagan and Gorbachev could get past their own military establishments. Reagan hoped that as trust built, more nuclear disarmament would proceed.

Bizarre New Star Formation Casts Doubt on How the Solar System Formed

  • nemesis maturity Published on Oct 23, 2018
    Everything we know about the formation of solar systems might be wrong, says University of Florida astronomy professor Jian Ge and his postdoc, Bo Ma. They’ve discovered the first “binary–binary” – two massive companions around one star in a close binary system, one so-called giant planet and one brown dwarf, or “failed star”

    The first, called MARVELS-7a, is 12 times the mass of Jupiter, while the second, MARVELS-7b, has 57 times the mass of Jupiter. Astronomers believe that planets in our solar system formed from a collapsed disk-like gaseous cloud, with our largest planet, Jupiter, buffered from smaller planets by the asteroid belt.

    In the new binary system, HD 87646, the two giant companions are close to the minimum mass for burning deuterium and hydrogen, meaning that they have accumulated far more dust and gas than what a typical collapsed disk-like gaseous cloud can provide. They were likely formed through another mechanism. The stability of the system despite such massive bodies in close proximity raises new questions about how protoplanetary disks form.

Israel’s Liberman Threatens Palestinians with War Over Border Tensions

  • Israel’s Liberman Threatens Palestinians with War Over Border Tensions
    by https://www.dailysabah.com/mideast
    Israel’s defense minister Avigdor Liberman yesterday vowed a serious military action to end border clashes along the border with the Gaza Strip. “Wars are only conducted when there is no choice, and now there is no choice,” the defense minister said yesterday at the start of a meeting of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, the Jerusalem Post reported.

    “Anything less than the toughest response won’t help anymore. We have exhausted the other options.” At least 130 Palestinians were hit by Israeli gunfire last Friday as thousands protested near Gaza’s border with Israel, the health ministry in the enclave said, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported. Following calls to avoid an escalation in violence, the demonstrators largely kept their distance from the fortified frontier fence. But at least 130 Palestinians were injured by live fire in clashes with Israeli soldiers, the health ministry said. Rockets fired from Gaza last week had brought the territory’s Hamas rulers and Israel closer to a large-scale confrontation.

    Since March, Hamas has orchestrated near-weekly protests along the security fence dividing Gaza and Israel, pressing for an end to the stifling Israel-Egyptian blockade imposed since the group took control of Gaza in 2007. Israeli fire has killed more than 200 Palestinians since the protests began. An Israeli soldier was killed over the same period. Of the seven killed on Friday, four died in one location, where the Israeli military said it opened fire on a crowd of Palestinians who had breached the fence and approached an army post. One Palestinian was initially wounded and died later in hospital. Israel was criticized by a U.N. human rights body for its killing of protesters in Gaza and its treatment of Palestinians, declaring it a war crime under the Statute of Rome.

    The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters. Protesters demand the “right of return” to their homes and villages in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel. They also demand an end to Israel’s 12-year blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has gutted the coastal enclave’s economy and deprived its more than 2 million inhabitants of many basic commodities.

Silence on Yemen Carnage Shows US, Europe Hypocrisy: Hezbollah Official

  • Silence on Yemen Carnage Shows US, Europe Hypocrisy: Hezbollah Official
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    A top official of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says the awkward silence of the United States and Europe on the ongoing Saudi-led massacres in Yemen definitively proves their hypocrisy, stating that Washington is being paid huge sums of money by the Riyadh regime to cover up its crimes.

    “Saudi Arabia can buy US President Donald Trump, the US Congress, the Security Council and major powers with its petrodollars, but cannot win the support of defenseless and honorable Yemeni nation or Hezbollah’s silence. That is why they tend to punish the Lebanese resistance movement through placing it on terrorist lists and adopting economic sanctions against it,” Sheikh Nabil Qaouk, deputy chief of Hezbollah’s executive council, said on Sunday.

    Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of resigned president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, back to power and crushing the country’s popular Houthi Ansarullah movement.

    The Legal Center for Rights and Developments in Yemen, in a statement released on October 15, announced that the ongoing Saudi-led military campaign against the impoverished and conflict-plagued Arab country has resulted in the death of 15,185 civilians, including 3,527 children and 2,277 women.

Iranian Envoy Reveals Launch Time (November) of New EU Trade Scheme to Bypass US Sanctions

  • Iranian Envoy Reveals Launch Time of New EU Trade Scheme to Bypass US Sanctions
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The EU-proposed financial mechanism that will enable countries to bypass US sanctions on trade with Iran will be launched next month, Iran’s ambassador to Russia said.

    “This mechanism will be launched in November 2018,” Mehdi Sanaei told Russia’s Izvestia newspaper in an interview published Tuesday.

    The United States slapped Iran with new sanctions after accusing it of violating the 2015 nuclear deal with six world powers. Curbs on financial flows to Iran are expected to take effect on November 4.

    “Iran is a responsible member of the international community. The reports by the IAEA – there are more than 12 – prove that Iran complies with its obligations. So the EU is working on a financial-economic plan for trade cooperation with Iran,” the diplomat said.

    EU’s plan was announced in September by its foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini after a meeting of Chinese, French, German, Russian and UK foreign ministers. The new payment system will comply with international standards and will be open other partners in the world.

Italy Tells EU It WILL Stick to Budget Plans – DENIES Proposals ‘Will Risk EU Stability’

  • Italy Tells EU It WILL Stick to Budget Plans – DENIES Proposals ‘Will Risk EU Stability’
    by LEVI WINCHESTER, https://www.express.co.uk/
    ITALY has responded to a warning shot from the European Commission regarding its controversial budget plans, with the Treasury insisting it will stick to spending proposals. However, Treasury officials vowed to intervene if it failed to meet its debt and deficit goals, while admitting that the budget was not in line with EU rules.

    In a letter to the Commission, Economy Minister Giovanni Tria said the government had to respond to years of economic underperformance. He added that the Italian government did not intend to further expand the budget deficit in 2020 and 2021. He wrote: “(The budget) was a hard, but necessary decision in light of Italy’s delay in catching up to pre-crisis levels of GDP and the desperate economic conditions in which the most disadvantaged citizens find themselves in.

In Unprecedented Step, EU Tells Italy To Resubmit Budget As Conte Says No “Plan B”

  • Has the nation states in the EU lost their sovereignty to the central EU politburo, central government? The clear answer is YES! However, Italy is not Greece and when Italy collapses, it will bring down the EU. So, I don’t believe the EU central government has that much leverage, negotiation power over Italy.

Trump to Pressure Netanyahu on Israel-Palestine Peace Plan – Report

  • I don’t believe that Trump will be tough on Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit. He “can be” but he won’t. He is a mega Zionist.
  • Trump to Pressure Netanyahu on Israel-Palestine Peace Plan – Report
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    This is the first time Trump has talked about exerting pressure on the US’s Middle Eastern ally.

    US President Donald Trump has reportedly told French President Emmanuel Macron that he is ready to put pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to facilitate the peace plan between Israel and Palestine, Israel’s Channel 10 news correspondent Barak Ravid wrote on Axios.

    Citing Western diplomatic sources briefed on the meeting between the two presidents during the UN General Assembly, Ravid reports that Macron asked Trump why he only pressures Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and not the Israeli leader as well.

    As the two discussed the Israeli-Palestinian issue, Macron reportedly observed that Netanyahu is not interested in moving on with the peace plan because “he loves the status quo.” Trump reportedly agreed on that observation.

    However, Trump responded by saying that he put pressure on Palestinian side because they “don’t want to talk to the US peace team,” which he found unacceptable, but he is also willing to put pressure on Netanyahu when the moment comes, Ravid reports.

    “I can be as tough with Bibi as I have been with the Palestinians,” the diplomats quoted Trump as saying.

    According to the sources, Trump noted that the US has given Israel a lot, including moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and providing a hefty sum of $5 billion in military aid every year. However, Ravid notes that the president exaggerated this figure, which in reality is only $3.8 billion.

    This is the first time Trump has reportedly talked about putting pressure on Netanyahu, who is widely perceived to be one of Trump’s closest allies.
