Kremlin Enters War Of Words With Pompeo After Nuke-Capable Bombers Deployed To Venezuela

  • Kremlin Enters War Of Words With Pompeo After Nuke-Capable Bombers Deployed To Venezuela
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed Russia for sending a pair of long-range nuclear capable Tu-160 bombers “halfway around the world” to Venezuela in comments posted to Twitter late Monday. The Kremlin confirmed the jets touched down at Venezuela’s Simon Bolivar International Airport in the capital of Caracas previously that day.

    “The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer,”
     Pompeo stated.


    The Kremlin, which has described the flights as training exercises and part of Russia’s right to make “regular flights over the international waters,” responded by describing Pompeo’s statement as “an utterly inappropriate comment” and his weighing in as “indeed very undiplomatic,” according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Former US State and Defense Department Officials Discuss Prospects for Nuclear War

  • Former US State and Defense Department Officials Discuss Prospects for Nuclear War
    by J. L’Heureau, https://www.wsws.org/
    On December 3, Foreign Affairs, published by the US. Council on Foreign Relations, and Scientific American hosted a panel discussion entitled “Do Nuclear Weapons Matter?” Gideon Rose, the editor for Foreign Affairs and one of the three participating panelists, explained that the panel’s purpose, over two-and-a-half decades since the end of the Cold War, was to discuss the contemporary significance of nuclear weapons.

    The three panelists all have deep ties to the US State and Defense Departments. Rose himself was a staff member of the National Security Council under the Clinton administration in the mid-1990s. As the editor of Foreign Affairs since 2010, he has overseen and taken a direct part in the debate over US foreign policy under both Democratic and Republican administrations.

    The second panelist, Elbridge Colby, served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense from 2017-2018. He is one of the principal architects of the latest US National Defense Strategy, which advocates a shift of US imperialism’s focus away from the “war on terror” and towards “great power competition,” i.e., war with Russia and China.

    Colby is the author of an article published recently in Foreign Affairs titled “If you want peace, prepare for nuclear war,” a modern adaptation of the Latin phrase, si vis pacem, para bellum (if you want peace, prepare for war). In it he argues for the US adopting a strategy to fight a “limited” nuclear war.

    The third panelist, Nina Tannenwald, served in the US State Department under the Obama administration.

    In introducing the panel discussion, the event’s moderator, Curtis Brainard, Managing Editor of Scientific American, stressed that they all could agree that “a lot has changed in the last 10 years, and that the specter of nuclear conflict…has come back to center stage.” He posed the question, “After so many years of détente, what happened?”

    A large portion of the forum centered on the rapidly deteriorating relationship between the US and Russia on one hand, and the US and China on the other. Tannenwald argued that one of the principal reasons the world is experiencing a new “qualitative arms race” is Russia’s “bringing us back to the old geopolitics.”

    Colby, while agreeing that “Russia is the more pointed reason that nuclear weapons have reemerged in the international security environment,” argued that China was the cause for “the more fundamental, structural shift” in U.S. foreign and nuclear policy.

US Switching to Ukraine as Location to Start World War III Against Russia

  • US Switching to Ukraine as Location to Start World War III Against Russia
    by ERIC ZUESSE | 02 Oct 2018, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    The United States Government is now treating Ukraine as if it were a NATO member, and on September 27th donated to Ukraine two warships for use against Russia. This is the latest indication that the US is switching to Ukraine as the locale to start World War III, and from which the nuclear war is to be sparked against Russia, which borders Ukraine.

    Here is why Syria is no longer the US alliance’s preferred choice as a place to start WW III:

    On September 4th, US President Donald Trump publicly threatened Syria, Iran and Russia that if they exterminated the jihadists in Syria’s only remaining jihadist-controlled province, Idlib, then the US might launch a full-scale invasion against Syria, Iran and Russia in Syria. Either the US or Russia would then quickly escalate to nuclear war so as not to lose in Syria — that would be the conventional-war start to World War III.

    The leaders of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and Syria (Putin, Rouhani, Erdogan, and Assad), agreed in two meetings, one on September 7th and the other on September 17th, to (as I had recommended on September 10th) transfer control of Syria’s only remaining jihadist-controlled province, Idlib, to NATO-member Turkey. This action effectively prevents the US alliance from going to war against Russia if Russia’s alliance (which includes Syria) obliterates all the jihadist groups in the Al-Qaeda-led Syrian province Idlib. For the US to war against Russia there would also be war against fellow-NATO-member Turkey — out of the question.

    The US has been using Al Qaeda in Syria to train and lead the jihadist groups which have been trying to overthrow Syria’s Government and to replace it with a government that has been selected by the Saud family who own Saudi Arabia. Ever since 1949 the US Government has been trying to do this (to place the Saud family in charge of Syria). That plan is now being placed on-hold if not blocked altogether, because of the Russia, Turkey, Iran, Syria, agreement. As I reported on September 25th, “Turkey Now Controls Syria’s Jihadists”. The US would no longer be able to save them, but Turkey would, if Erdogan wants to. “Turkey is thus now balanced on a knife’s edge, between the US and its allies (representing the Saud family) on the one side, versus Russia and its allies (representing the anti-Saud alliance) on the other.”

    During the same period in which the US Government was setting Syria up as the place to start WW III, it was also setting up Ukraine as an alternative possibility to do that. US President Obama, in a very bloody February 2014 coup which he had started planning by no later than 2011, overthrew Ukraine’s democratically elected President, and replaced him by a rabidly anti-Russian racist-fascist regime whose Ukrainian tradition went back to ideologically nazi Ukrainian organizations that had supported Hitler during World War II. Though communism is gone from Russia ever since 1991, the US aristocracy never ended its goal of conquering Russia; the Cold War was secretly continued on the US-NATO side. Ukraine’s nazis (meaning its racist-fascists) are now the US and UK aristocracies’ chief hope to achieve this ambition of a US-and-allied global conquest. Here are the recent steps toward WW III regarding the US alliance’s new (since 2014) prize, Ukraine:

Research Finds 70% of Israeli Politicians’ Statements False; Netanyahu on Top

  • Research Finds 70% of Israeli Politicians’ Statements False; Netanyahu on Top
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    A new study has revealed that more than 70 percent of statements by senior Israeli politicians are false, putting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on top of the list of those who uttered fake news.

    The study carried out by Yifat Media Check Ltd. and Hamashrokit – “The Whistle” fact-checking NGO – found that most statements made by top Israeli politicians in the past year were either totally or mostly wrong. 

    The study showed that representatives of coalition parties have a higher tendency to make false statements as 74 percent of their statements were found to be false, 12 percent were partially true and only 14 percent were true.

    The political lie that got the most press coverage (7 million exposures on regular and social media outlets) belongs to Netanyahu who has made numerous unsubstantiated allegations against Iran’s nuclear program.

    According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran has continued to implement all its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal even as the United States reimposed sanctions against Tehran.

    Israel’s Interior Minister Arye Deri was in the second place in the list of the speakers of fake news. According to the report, the main problem with false news is that when it is broadcast on established media, it is granted a higher degree of credibility. The research found that Netanyahu’s false remarks on Iran were considered as credible by 88 percent of readers and viewers in Israel.

Russia Calls for Change in Rules of Using Nuclear Weapons

  • PressTV Published on Nov 21, 2018
    A committee of the upper house of the Russian parliament has recommended that the National Security Council change the rules on the use of nuclear weapons. The non-binding recommendation relates to a response to a hypothetical use of hypersonic and other non-nuclear strategic weapons against Russia. The announcement comes after President Vladimir Putin warned the United States against its decision to withdraw from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty. He vowed that Moscow will be ready to take concrete steps should the U-S deliver on its announced plan. In October, U-S president Donald trump said he had decided to exit from the landmark bilateral nuclear arms control treaty.

Iran Urges EU to Accelerate Efforts to Save Nuclear Deal

  • Iran Urges EU to Accelerate Efforts to Save Nuclear Deal
    by Shi Yinglun, http://www.xinhuanet.com/
    TEHRAN, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) — Iran is “frustrated” with the slow pace of European Union (EU) to help the country to benefit under its international nuclear deal after U.S. pullout from the accord in May.


    Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency on Tuesday that he was confident that Iran would find markets for oil exports even though the U.S. measures have pushed down Iran’s crude exports sharply.

    “There are always markets for oil. It depends on the conditions and the price,” he said, adding that “I believe Iran will always sell oil.”

    The U.S. is not living up to its promises and all its sanctions against Iran are unlawful and against the UN Security Council resolutions, he said, adding that the U.S. is not even bound to the commitment it has made. Under these circumstances, EU is expected to speed up the moves to help European companies to continue trade with Iran, Zarif stressed. “What is important is that Europe has made the political commitment but, unfortunately, it has been very slow in practice,” Zarif said.

    A clearing house, known as a Special Purpose Vehicle, which designed to allow European companies to bypass the U.S. sanctions, is due to be set up by the EU within the next few months, according to the western media.

EU Believes No Credible Peaceful Alternative to Iran Nuclear Deal Exists

  • There does not seem to be a new, revised Iran Nuclear deal. So can’t be a Covenant of 1 week.
  • EU Believes No Credible Peaceful Alternative to Iran Nuclear Deal Exists
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – The European Union believes that there is no credible peaceful alternative to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly referred to as the Iran nuclear deal, Vera Jourova, the European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, said.

    “There is no credible peaceful alternative to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The deal with Iran is a key element of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture,” Jourova said during a plenary session of the European Parliament on Wednesday.

    Jourova noted that preserving the Iran nuclear deal was a matter of security for the whole global community.

    The official added that the European Union did not recognize the US extra-terrestrial sanctions arising from Washington’s withdrawal from the JCPOA.

    “We, Europeans, cannot accept that a foreign power, not even our closest friend and ally, takes decisions over our legitimate trade with another country. The ongoing work, led by France, Germany and the United Kingdom, aims at preserving the full and effective implementation of the Plan of Action in all its aspects and in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2231,” Jourova pointed out. Her speech was broadcast by the European Commission video service.

    US President Donald Trump has for a long time been a critic of the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by his predecessor Barack Obama. In May, Trump announced the US withdrawal from the agreement, which ensures the re-imposition of Washington’s sanctions on Iran, over Tehran’s alleged failure to comply with the JCPOA, something denied by Tehran. Two rounds of sanctions have been reintroduced since then, with the large-scale restrictions covering oil exports being slapped on Iran on November 5.
