Things are escalating politically and militarily between Turkey, Russia, the system and internationally.
The war drums were also sounded and dances began after the Russians rejected Turkey's request to withdraw the regime from the areas it controlled.
Will the Russians insist that the regime not withdraw,
Of course, the decision is not in the hands of Bashar, but in the hands of the Russians?
At the same time ,

Will Erdogan give up his promise to the People's Assembly, his people, and his military leadership after the end of the period he gave to the regime, ??
And who is the end of February to withdraw.?

My short take on @EmmanuelMacron's speech on defence and #nuclear #deterrence #dissuasion:
The baseline of the doctrine is unchanged: defensive role of NW, targeted against states' centres of power; strict sufficiency; final warning to restore deterrence; and vital interests 1/7
On that point: Macron specifies what previous presidents had already alluded to: "Let's be clear: France's vital interests now have a European dimension". I.E effort at being more open about the European role of French deterrence, while still not participating in #NATO's NPG. 2/7
Deterrence is also a necessary component of his effort to build a European strategic culture. He thus proposes "a strategic dialogue, with those European partners that are ready, on the role of French nuclear deterrence for our collective security". 3/7

@realDonaldTrump Flashback Quote from 9 senior British senior officers:

We, the undersigned have all held senior commands.
Including fighting commands across the spectrum in her majesty service.
We believe that #PresidentTrump asked a valid Question, and that it deserves a...
@realDonaldTrump ..serious reply. In #GreatBrittans case the following points are a frame work for that reply.
They call for a 10 year program of rebuilding and realignment to begin with the eminent modernization defense report that must reflect the scale of responsibilities.
We respectfully
@realDonaldTrump ..remind the prime minister that uniquely in government, she and her ministers do not control how much money is needed to provide adequate defense of the realm.
Our potential enemy determine how much money is needed.
This is an eternal truth there is no waver.
President

1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

#AnneWill
2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

#AnneWill #LibyaConference
3. To make things more messy:
The "Prime Minister of Tripolis", Fayez #Sarraj, is supported by
#Turkey (troops in Libya)
#Germany
#EU
#Italy
#Qatar
#UN

#Haftar is supported by
#SaudiArabia
#UAE
#Egypt
#Russia (RUS mercenaries in Libya)

Was Norway's drastic reduction of donations to the Clinton Foundation related to the 150 TB CP ring busted in 2016?

#Epstein #DynCorp #Kosovo #Clinton #NATO #Norway

#SaveTheChildren #EndTrafficking #PizzaGate #DrainTheSwamp
Norwegian police in Operation Dark Room brought charges against 51 people including 'highly educated' politicians, lawyers, police, teachers

They seized 150 TB of CP...

ABC, NYT & WaPo all deleted their articles about this case


tnp.no/norway/panoram…
Norway donated $584M to the CF from 07-16 then slashed their donations by 87% after HRC lost in 16

The cuts were announced the SAME WEEK as the pedo ring bust, just days after 2016 US election

Among the arrested was a politician from Norways Labor party

Wonderful. Let's #TalkAboutTrafficking.

1. There is more than 1 kind of Trafficking that is NOT being spoken about. @DHSGov and @TheJusticeDept are a part of this trafficking. It's called Trafficking Ppl. Wrongfully Placed on Terrorist Watchlists into Non-Consensual Mil Expmts.
2. This 1994 MOU between #DOD and #DOJ has permitted them to test advanced technologies on the American populace, without disclosing such publicly.

everydayconcerned.net/2019/12/01/doc…

Media has failed to cover.

Let's #TalkAboutTrafficking.
3. The fact that ppl--100s of 1000s of NSLs approved every year--in millions probably at this pt have been wrongfully placed on Terrorist watchlists and named terrorists is well-known.

This first step permits criminally corrupt #FusionCenters to make $.

A #ceasefire went into effect in #Libya at midnight as the country’s two rival governments prepared to sign an agreement in #Moscow ahead of a #Berlin conference designed to end the conflict there is planned for later this week. @NarativLive aljazeera.com/news/2020/01/l…
2. The US is one of several countries watching from the sidelines as #Russia and #Turkey consolidate power in #Libya as they have in #Syria and to some extent in #Iraq. @NarativLive
3. The new agreement appears to favor Russian-backed warlord Khalifa #Haftar and his main sponsor Vladimir Putin. @NarativLive

Volete capire a che punto è la "guerra" tra Trumpiani @realDonaldTrump (Casa Bianca) e Washingtoniani (Deep State) e perché #Mattarella e #Conte iniziano a vedere i sorci verdi?

Seguite il Thread (1/23):
Subito dopo le elezioni del 2016, gli apparati statunitensi hanno aizzato le province dell'impero contro @POTUS e così Gran Bretagna, Australia, Ucraina e Italia sono finite al centro di uno scontro furioso e senza esclusione di colpi. (2/23)
Il motivo è quello che sappiamo tutti 👉Trump è un nazionalista poco interessato a ciò che succede fuori dagli USA,il deep state invece vuole mantenere la vocazione "imperiale", le province sono ovviamente schierate con questi ultimi al fine di cogliere protezione militare (3/23)

NATO has temporarily suspended training mission in Iraq. Senior military official described it to me as more of a temporary pause out of due diligence to asses the Iraqi reaction. No sense, as of right now, that this is leading up to pulling troops #Cdnfp #Soleimani #cdnpoli #CAF
I am told by a senior source that Operation Impact (which includes the special forces mission) has not paused, only NATO. #cdnpoli #CAF #Soleimani #cdnfp #NATO
So that means a number of Canadian troops are still active in Iraq (Op Impact: train, advise, assist) #cdnpoli #cdnfp #CAF #Soleimani

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony

Let's get 2020 started. I'll be posting Campaign Resolutions like #NewYearsResolution but how I'll Represent #NC13 in D.C.
1 - I am not accepting Corporate PAC donations like my Republican opponent. My vote is not for sale.
secure.actblue.com/donate/scott20…
2 - I will work to engage citizens to hold our Government accountable to the people. I'm not running to be a politician. I am elected to be a Public Servant. I work for the district not for the #donorclass. Our #workingclass families need representation in D.C.
3 - We live in #TwoAmericas. The #ExtremeRich & everybody else. Everybody else is having to work 2 or 3 jobs. We need to focus on improving #workingclass wages. I will support a $15 min raise. My Republican opponent voted NO on HR 582 - Raise the Wage Act

@altDoD_ @WTF_Judge @Doctrine_Man @TheWTFNation Once Upon a Time, long ago during DADT & far away @CJTFHOA, we had a #Navy chief medical officer who had openly #LGBTQ corpsmen & free condoms in an area known for AIDS at the duty desk.

@altDoD_ @WTF_Judge @Doctrine_Man @TheWTFNation @CJTFHOA ... which is not okay. As Medical faced Main St with a glass window that needed taping in case of incoming, the window was taped in white fibre - studded with condoms of every color & feature scrounged by a very creative & enthusiastic group of NCOs from all branches and nations.

#Beijing’s nightmare is coming true. #China is #Nato’s new communist target

Nato has always needed a common enemy and communist target. In China, it has both 👍
scmp.com/week-asia/opin…
As member states celebrated its 70th anniversary at a golf resort in Watford on the outskirts of London this month, Nato seemed to have found something to legitimise its existence once more. Another rising communist power is now in its sights: China.
It might take time for Nato to develop a coordinated China policy as its members’ strategic priorities & core national interests vary. While Washington’s focus is on the Indo-Pacific, EU nations’ concerns about China are more about economic, technological & cybersecurity threats.

Folks, seeing many bots and trolls feeding negativity and depressive narratives. Don’t buy into it. Things look tough and oppressive, but they truly aren’t. Trump is against the ropes. GOP MOC are “retiring” by the truck load. Pleas are being taken and Trumpers are serving 1/
time. It only gets worse from here for Trump. He has Erdogan and Lavrov trotting over to the Oval in the hopes of generating distraction from his treason, impeachment hearings, & his remaining crimes. Barr & other GOPers have been reduced to bald face lying publicly. 2/
because they have no other card to play. No one has been pardoned. No one affiliated with this treason will be. The IG report shredded all their insane narratives as to the origin of the investigation into the Trump campaign. They’re literally running as fast as they can 3/

1/6: Six tweets on #NATO. It remains really important to us. A defensive alliance between the democracies of Europe & North America is indisputably a good thing. It’s far from perfect, but we are fortunate to have it & should not belittle it or take it for granted.
2/6: Through #NATO Europe still enjoys an indispensable US security umbrella, despite Trump’s intemperance. US demands for greater burden sharing are reasonable. But it’s not all one way traffic. America derives great strategic advantage from the support of allies.
3/6: Macron is right that Europe should build more autonomous capability & that we need to review the purpose of #NATO. It’s a Cold War legacy rooted in territorial defence against Russia. Sadly we still need that, but NATO also needs to show relevance to new security threats.

Corbyn in 2014: "That should have been the time for NATO to shut up shop, give up, go home and go away"

We are not safe under Labour #NATO #GE19 1/6
Corbyn: The absurd spatchcock of a history that NATO has been treating us to over the last few weeks needs to be challenged... In 1948 NATO was founded in order to promote a cold war with the Soviet Union.

According to Corbyn NATO was created to promote the cold war! 2/6
NATO did intervene in the Balkans and to stop the genocide and ethnic cleansing in Kosovo. 3

As more GOP lawmakers draw a false equivalence btn Russia and Ukraine election “meddling” (defined as Ukrainians being critical of Trump) …

how about these countries, do they need to be investigated too?

1. "Mr Trump is so stupid, my God!" Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.

2.“Divisive, unhelpful and quite simply wrong.” Former British prime minister David Cameron on Trump's proposed Muslim travel ban.
3.“He changes opinions like the rest of us change underwear." Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen
4.“His discourse is so dumb, so basic." Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.

<Thread> Takeaways from Macron/Trump - Turkey is the big issue at NATO. Macron says #Turkey will veto every #NATO resolution asked how Turkey could buy #Russian air defense systems and remain in NATO.
Macron also asks what is a terrorist? Turkey views NATO allies like Syria's #Kurds as terrorists. Lurking behind both these issues is Putin who pulls the strings in Syria and is in league with Erdogan. Where Trump lands on these two issues will be telling. /2
Trump boasts about keeping the oil are possibly problematic. Plundering other countries is considered a war crime. /END
