#Moscow lost 3.5 million in WWI & 24 million in WWII. #Ukraine, #Czechoslovak, #Poland, #Lithuania, #Yugoslavia, #Netherlands, #Norway, #Greece, #Belgium, #Luxembourg, & #France were under Nazi.
W/o the Russians and the allies on the other, #Germany would have not been defeated.
#Syria President Bashar al-Assad visited #Iran for the first time in 3 years. By sending the Air Force following the request of the gov in #Damascus, #Russia challenged the #US and NATO and defeated, along with Iran, their objective to create a fail-state in Syria.
What is interesting to note is the presence of the Iranian Revolution Guard Corps - Quds Brigade commander general Ismail Qaani during the meeting between President Assad and Wali al-Fakih Sayed Ali Khamenei.

Tarihin en acı çikolatası - #Belgique

Kongo'da çalıştırılan işçiler için günlük toplama kotaları belirlenmiş, Fildişi ve kauçuk ya da diğer zenginliklerden birinin kotalarını bir kez bile karşılamayan erkekler, ellerinin ya da ayaklarının kesilmesi ile cezalandırılmıştır. Image
Kotayı dolduramayan kişi yakalanamazsa ya da çalışmak için iki elini kullanması gerekliyse, askerler bu kişilerin eşlerinin veya çocuklarının ellerini kesmiştir.

-Aşağıda kotasını dolduramadığı için çocuklarının kesilen ellerine bakan bir baba ve eli kesilen çocuklar. #Belgium ImageImage
Kongo’da 1885 yılında başlayan acımasız sömürge döneminin gerçek yüzü 1900’lü yıllarda gazeteci Morel tarafından dile getirilmeye başlanmıştır.
Ortaya çıkan kesilmiş ellerin, ellerini kullanmayan çocukların ve yakılmış köylerin fotoğrafları,tüm dünyada büyük yankı uyandırmıştır. Image

#Russia halts its gas supply to Poland for failure to pay in Roubles, the Russian currency, as previously warned. This is a message to Europe that Russia won't stand down on its decision even if the European countries are financing the war in #Ukraine.
The fall of Kherson Oblast, also called Khersonshchyna, southern Ukraine, just north of Crimea is a major hit to the #US and #Ukraine. The Kherson Area is 28,461 km², almost #Belgium's size. It indicates that Russia's change of military tactics is efficient, unlike NATO' weapons
We hear many calls from the #US administration that the Americans welcome any ceasefire and will accept any suggestion that ends the Russian military ops. This means that the #US and its NATO allies have failed, like in #Syria, to achieve their objectives.

Gloves off
Pentagon: #Ukraine has received fighter planes & aircraft parts to bolster its air force. This indicates a change in #US attitude, which had initially refused to provide Ukraine w/ heavy armaments to avoid action #Russia cld consider direct involvement in the conflict.
The announcement comes a week after #US President @JoeBiden unveiled an $800 million military aid package for #Kyiv, including heavier equipment such as Helicopters, and howitzers (US army training the Ukrainians on their use), as fighting escalates in eastern #Ukraine.
It is unclear how #Ukraine manages to bring into the country jets, Helicopters, Howitzers and tons of military types of equipment if #Russia has the air dominance over the Ukrainian air space and adequate intelligence overseeing the ongoing war.

#Russia is fighting a NATO trained/equipped army in #Ukraine, a battle that the #US prepared since 2014 when the army was only 120,000 men and become 450,000 men, notwithstanding the dear economic situation. This is what I told @georgegalloway on @MoatsTV…
The #US has provided #Ukraine with $2.7 billion in military assistance in the years since 2014 to prepare the army for a confrontation with #Russia and is still sending over $1 billion weapons for #Ukrainians to fight and die in a war we know what but not when will be the end.
#Russia is concentrating its attacks on several fronts:
In the south #Mariupol (via @MapsUkraine and @spriter99880).

The Russian forces have breached into the city, with the aim to cut it in two, a tactic we have seen before in #Syria.

Made a mess of these threads. Integrating them here
#Ukraine's President Zelensky said a few hours ago he is still going to Germany tomorrow for the Munich Security Conference. Whether this is supposed to promote calm or what is unclear; it's a hell of a time for him to leave his capital.
President #Biden just said in his White House address that the US believes the #Russians will invade #Ukraine in the next few days and "they will target Ukraine's capital, Kiev". Image

"Two years ago, as the 🌎 was still coming to grips with the spread of a new coronavirus, WHO did what only WHO can do – we convened hundreds of scientists from around the world to identify the most urgent priorities in R&D. Among them was the development of vaccines."-@DrTedros
"Tomorrow marks the second anniversary of that first meeting.
It’s incredible to think that within a year of that meeting, the first vaccines were approved, and just two years later, more than 10 billion doses have been administered globally."-@DrTedros

A serious #US will for #Russia to declare war on #Ukraine and move into the Ukrainian quagmire. Most of #Europe, spinless, just follow regardless of the consequences on the continent.Ukraine is "happy" to receive billions worth of weapons not financial aid to support its economy.

I've reviewed the resources @CodePink recommends as part of its #ChinaIsNotOurEnemy campaign regarding #Xinjiang #Uyghurs.
These resources promote a cultural response to alleged threat of #terrorism from #EastTurkistan/#Xinjiang, and I'm not sure if @CodePink would also approve of governments like #UK #USA #Belgium #France similarly "reeducating" their Muslim minority populations.
Aside from the condescension in the Chinese government documents cited, there is all but a total embrace of pre-crime activities à la Philip K. Dick's "The Minority Report."…

Breaking: #Belgium is not going into #lockdown.

After considering closing bars/restaurants (nightclubs already closed), gyms, theatres, Christmas markets & home gatherings, the government has decided only to close schools.

Press conference starting now:
Important for EU bubble folks: private indoor events will be prohibited form 6 December *except in homes*.

My reading of this is that it wouldn't allow for in-person conferences. But let's see what they say at the press conference.
“The situation is no longer tenable’” says Belgian PM @AlexanderDeCroo.

“This Autumn’s wave has been much more severe than we had anticipated. The infections are among the highest in Europe.”
