Munich Brawl: Pence Clashes with Merkel and Mogherini Over Iran Deal, Russian Pipeline

  • Munich Brawl: Pence Clashes with Merkel and Mogherini Over Iran Deal, Russian Pipeline
    by https://www.rt.com/
    US Vice President Mike Pence went full throttle in Munich as he rolled out a list of Washington’s demands to the EU, clashing with Germany’s Angela Merkel and Brussels’ Federica Mogherini on Iran and Russia.

    EU nations must “stop undermining US sanctions” against Iran, Pence told the audience at the annual Munich Security Conference on Saturday, urging European allies to follow the American lead in ditching the deal on the Iranian nuclear program.

    He had earlier blasted EU countries for not being “cooperative” with Washington’s push to pressure Iran. The US unilaterally pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) last year, citing mistrust towards the Islamic Republic and accusing it of threatening global security. Iran denied the allegations, while Washington’s move was condemned by the EU, China and Russia.

Palestine’s Hamas, Fatah Movements Denounce US ‘Deal of Century’ for Middle East

  • Palestine’s Hamas, Fatah Movements Denounce US ‘Deal of Century’ for Middle East
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    Two major Palestinian rival groups, the West Bank-based Fatah party and the Gaza-based Hamas resistance movement, have expressed their strong opposition to US President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” on the so-called Middle East peace process.

    The strongly-worded statements were read by representatives of both sides on Wednesday, the final day of the third edition of Russia-mediated intra-Palestinian conference that commenced on Monday in the Russian capital Moscow with the aim of unifying 12 different Palestinian movements and organizations, including the Fatah movement led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

    “We created the Palestinian state, in which we declared back in 1988. We stand for the creation of the Palestinian state within the borders of the liberation of territories captured in 1967 … with its capital in East Jerusalem al-Quds,” said Azzam al-Ahmad, a senior member of Fatah’s Central Committee.

    “I would like to emphasize for [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and Trump. This is our and Qatar’s opinion. We will not allow America to use the financial factor in order to tear us away from the Gaza Strip,” he added. Ahmad said that Washington had so far rejected “all of our peace-loving initiatives.”

    In late August last year, the US announced it would end all funding to the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, known as UNRWA, a week after it cut over $200 million in aid for the West Bank and Gaza. Washington donated $355 million to the UN agency in 2016, and was set to make a similar contribution last year.

    Qatar, a Persian Gulf littoral state, financially supports Hamas, a move that has time and again irked Fatah. Moussa Abu Marzouk, the deputy chairman of Hamas’ political bureau, for his part, said his respective movement also rejected “the American plan for solving the Middle East problem, which is called the deal of the century.”

    He also stressed they would not “allow any foreign party to intervene and destroy our aspiration [to bring peace],” accusing both the US and Israel of hatching plots to separate the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian movement.

US Peace Plan Will ‘Ruin Everything’ Gained from Previous Efforts Toward Peace: Russia

  • US Peace Plan Will ‘Ruin Everything’ Gained from Previous Efforts Toward Peace: Russia
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warns that US President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” will “ruin everything” gained from previous efforts regarding the so-called Middle East peace process, and will fail to fully guarantee a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders.

    The US authorities “have been promising for more than two years to offer some sort of deal of the century. But current information gives us reason to believe that the future deal of the century would ruin everything that has been done so far,” further said the top Russian diplomat in Moscow on Tuesday.

    His comments was made on the second day of the third edition of intra-Palestinian conference that commenced on Monday in the Russian capital aimed at unifying 12 different Palestinian movements and organizations, including the West Bank-based Fatah movement led by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

    The so-called deal, a backchannel plan to reach a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, was proposed by the US administration in late 2017. Although the plan has not been released, leaks signal it will consist of the same tried-and-failed ideas.

    Palestinians believe that the deal suggests building their own Jerusalem al-Quds from areas surrounding the existing city and forgetting about the historical place. They also believe that the US-drafted plan calls for keeping borders and security under Israeli control, while it keeps Israeli settlements’ final borders to be discussed in later negotiations.

    Israel lays claim to the whole Jerusalem al-Quds, but the international community views the city’s eastern sector as an occupied territory and Palestinians consider it as the capital of their future state.

    Trump further darkened the prospects of the establishment of a Palestinian state back in December when he recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as the “capital” of Israel and ordered the US embassy to be relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds, a move that infuriated Palestinians and triggered numerous protests.

Russia Warns Trump Peace Plan Will Undo All Israeli-Palestinian Progress So Far

Rafah, Sinai, Buffer Zone bordering Gaza has been extended to about 2000m from 1000m. The plan to drive the Palestinians (ie. REAL JEWS) into the Sinai peninsula is being executed. The fulfillment of Revelation 12 is imminent.

  • Russia Warns Trump Peace Plan Will Undo All Israeli-Palestinian Progress So Far
    by https://www.timesofisrael.com/
    FM Lavrov says Moscow ‘worried’ by ‘dangerous’ US approach, adds ‘deal of the century’ doesn’t include independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as capital.

    Russia on Tuesday offered strong criticism of the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan proposed by US President Donald Trump’s administration, saying it would destroy all progress made so far in negotiations between both sides.

    “For more than 2 years US colleagues have been promising to offer a ‘deal of the century,’” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told visiting Palestinian officials, according to a translation by the Russian embassy in Israel published in a series of tweets. “However, the available information makes it possible to evaluate this future ‘deal’ as destroying everything that has been done so far.”

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and other administration officials will head out to the Middle East later this month to brief diplomats in at least five countries on the economic section of the US proposal, which is bitterly opposed by the Palestinians.

    Kushner, who is Trump’s son-in-law, will be joined by US Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt, US envoy for Iran Brian Hook and other administration officials who have worked on the economic part of the plan, dubbed the “deal of the century.”

    Stops are confirmed in Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Qatar. Other stops could be added to the trip, according to a White House official. Lavrov said Tuesday Moscow was “unhappy” with the current climate in the region, and views US involvement as “worrying.”

    “We see the greatest danger in the US position aimed at promoting unilateral approaches, breaking the key international legal basis for resolving the Palestinian problem,” he said in Moscow. Lavrov added that from “what we hear,” the Trump administration deal will not lead to the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

    “To our great regret, the Palestinian split has created pretexts for advancing along the line for breaking the generally accepted foundations of Israeli-Palestinian settlement,” he said at a meeting with representatives of 12 Palestinian factions — including the main ones, Fatah and Hamas — aimed at bridging the gaps between them and moving toward a unified government.

Panic, Central Banks Go Full Fear-Mongering, Gold Is About To Be Weaponized

  • X22Report Published on Feb 12, 2019
    The EU is now pushing project fear, they are talking about an apocalyptic event if there is a no deal. The CB and elite will use fear to try to get what they want. George Soros says something needs to be done or the entire EU will end up like the Soviet Union. Trump has trapped the Fed with jobs, job numbers are great, Fed is doing nothing, Fed raises rates, the market comes down, it is all blamed on the Fed. US, Russia and China will use gold to remove the central banks.

US Pushing Lebanon Towards War with Israel, According to Russian Envoy

  • US Pushing Lebanon Towards War with Israel, According to Russian Envoy
    by Russia’s Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin has warned the next war between Israel and Lebanon would be the result of “U.S. activity in the region and their campaign against Iran and Hezbollah.”

    In an interview with Russia’s Sputnik news agency, Friday, Zasypkin said “as for the Israeli-Lebanese situation, it is difficult to assess what will be because the entire region is at a crossroads.”

    He added that “the citizens expect a resolution to the problems, a return to peaceful lives and the development of cooperation.” But he said the Americans could spark new conflicts and that numerous other countries and ethnic groups could become involved in the fighting.

    Zasypkin also said that instead of there being a give-and-take relationship with the Russians, the United States has chosen “to embark on a campaign against Iran and Hezbollah that makes the atmosphere in the region even more violent.”

    Russia’s Beirut envoy said he sees Hezbollah’s involvement in the Syrian civil war as a positive factor. “They played an important part in the destruction of the terrorist cells. Hezbollah sided with the legitimate government in Syria from the outset of the war, as did Russia and Iran,” he said.

    Zasypkin also lauded the Shi’ite terrorist group for being “a strong political party that is very active in parliament. They contribute a great deal to stability, security and peace in Lebanon.”

Russia-Led Free-Trade Zone Will Soon Include 5 More Countries — De-Dollarization

  • Russia-Led Free-Trade Zone Will Soon Include 5 More Countries
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Free-trade agreements are expected to be signed between the Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) and Israel, Singapore, India, Egypt and Iran in the near future.

    That’s according to Russia’s First Deputy Minister of Industry Sergey Tsyb. He said WTO member states currently use over 7,500 non-tariff measures such as quotas, licenses, restrictions and embargos in respect of industrial goods.

    “Therefore, in our opinion, it would be very productive if we actively move towards the conclusion of agreements on the free-trade zone,”
     said the official.


    This would make it possible to promote exports within the framework of regional trade hubs, he explained. “That will definitely help in this challenging and highly sensitive situation on global markets to provide the opportunity for promotion of Russian export initiatives.”

    The EEU, which is based on the Customs Union of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus, was established in 2015. It was later joined by Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. In 2016, Vietnam officially became the first non-regional country to join the bloc. The union is designed to ensure the free movement of goods, services, capital and workers between member countries.

American Suspension of INF Treaty is Aimed at China

  • American Suspension of INF Treaty is Aimed at China
    by ANATOLY KARLIN, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    … However, it is with respect to the balance of power in the West Pacific that the restrictions imposed by the INF on the US – but not on China – come into play. While consensus expert opinion holds that the US still retains dominance in the South China Sea vis-à-vis China, its margin of superiority is shrinking year by year. In a 2015 report, the RAND Corporation estimated that the number of US air wings required to defeat a surge of attacking Chinese aircraft over Taiwan increased from just a couple in 1996 to 30 by 2017. In a subsequent report released in the following year, we see the balance of power in potential China-US conflict scenarios shift from a terminal Chinese disadvantage in 1996, to parity over Taiwan by 2017 (though they believe that the US still holds a decisive advantage in a conflict over the Spratly Islands). Even so, it is especially notable that the only two categories in a conflict over Taiwan in which RAND now considers China to hold an advantage – “Chinese attacks on air bases” and “Chinese anti-surface warfare” – are both spheres in which intermediate-range ballistic missiles would play an important role. This is not just my supposition. In another 2016 RAND report, tellingly titled “War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable”, this consideration is stated openly and forthrightly: “US land-based missiles from 500 km to 5,500 km are prohibited by the INF treaty, whereas the Chinese missiles are not, giving China a significant advantage.”

    It has long been obvious that the US (correctly) regards China as the real long-term threat to its global hegemony. Meanwhile, Russia is a mere nuisance, a “dying bear” that is ever approaching collapse, in the wake of which Moscow will have no choice but to sign up to America’s China containment project. (Sure, this sounds like a crazy ideological narrative, and it is – but the US policy of alienating Russia and drawing it into a quasi-alliance with China is even crazier – just ask Kissinger). But like it or not, this really is how the American elites think, and it can’t be denied that there is a certain logic to it. In this context, withdrawal from the INF Treaty – with Russia’s alleged violations as pretext – is just the logical next step to the military component of Obama’s “pivot to Asia”, one that the US is entirely happy to continue and follow through with. It really is as banal as that.

World War 3 WARNING? Russia, US and France Launch Nuclear-Capable Missiles HOURS APART

  • World War 3 WARNING: Russia, US and France Launch Nuclear-Capable Missiles HOURS APART
    by ATHENA CHRYSANTHOU, https://www.express.co.uk/
    RUSSIA, the United States and France have test-launched nuclear-capable missiles within hours of one another as fears rise of a return to a Cold War-era arms race amid the abandonment of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

    The French military announced Tuesday its air force conducted a rare test Monday of the nuclear-capable medium-range air-to-surface missile (ASMP). The US then followed with firing a nuclear-capable Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday night. Shortly after, Russian armed forces fired a nuclear-capable RS-24 Yars ICBM.

    None of the tests were thought to be equipped with nuclear warheads and were likely scheduled ahead of the INF treaty breakdown. In a press release the French Ministry of Defense said the demonstration of the ASMP was “successful”.

Calling Bulls*** on Hezbollah in Venezuela — Pompeo is LYING!

  • It appears Hezbollah, ISIS, Al Qaeda … are all cooperating with US-Pentagram and appear where they are most needed by America to justify war, CIA coups and what not.
  • Pompeo Claims Hezbollah “Active In Venezuela” To Justify Possible US Intervention
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Two weeks ago, when remarking sarcastically about the upcoming “requirement” for a US military presence in or around Venezuela where the situation is increasingly looking like a replay of events in Syria pitting the US and “western powers” on one said and Russia and China (and Turkey) on the other, we said that it’s only a matter of time before ISIS made a dramatic appearance in Latin America.

    “Time for ISIS to make a dramatic appearance in Latin America” – Zerohedge, 26 Jan 2019

    We thought we were joking. It turns out the joke was on us, because – in an apparent failure to come up with an even remotely original narrative for another imminent American intervention – US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday night that, drumroll, “Hezbollah has active cells in Venezuela.” Well, we were wrong about ISIS at least.

    As the Trump administration has continued to ratchet up pressure on the Latin American nation amid a crippling political and economic crisis, and hinted on several occasions that US troops would be deployed, Mike Pompeo told Fox Business that “people don’t recognize that Hezbollah has active cells” in the country, adding that “the Iranians are impacting the people of Venezuela and throughout South America. We have an obligation to take down that risk for America” he said, quoted by the Independent.
