Listen 👂 please: #Israel can't renounce on violating #Lebanon and #Syria airspace. #Russia can't just wipe away the murder of 15 servicemen and its own reputation as a superpower @PutinRF_Eng experience similar situation with #Turkey in 2015
Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia–#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.
Short THREAD on #Russia - #Turkey divergences over #Idlib as seen from #Moscow: 1. In early August I described rationale behind RU positon & that "certain level of understanding reached w/ TUR that there should be no [large-scale] offensive on Idlib [then]"almon.co/338t
2.I recently reached out to the same senior RUS diplomat who reiterated #Moscow's bottom-line desire to settle the issue peacefully except for terrorists organization who he argued #Turkey too agreed to fight as part of AStana agreements.Yesterday,RU #Syria envoy Lavrentyev..
3. .alluded to #Russia's growing displease w/ #Ankara's inability to deliver upon its committments in the area that, as Lavrentyev said"is kind of their zone of responsibility."Instead,#Erdogan writing op-eds,trying to enlist support from #West/ern partners over #Idlib which is..
Allende and his people were killed in the Presidential Palace after Pinochet's Jets bombed the palace. After that, the Army with American advisers started hunting down Liberals, Moderates, Communists, Anarchists, even random bohemian kids in the country where tortured in American
created Concentration Camps. Pinochet was just one of many Dictatorship trained by the School of the Americas (SOA) an Organization the US military uses to train Right Wing Terrorist groups in Latin America as well as would be dictators.
#US Senator Dick Black speaking to reporters at a #SAA position in #Aleppo: "Beyond this dividing line is Al Qaeda. They keep changing names, but it is Al Qaeda, the same group that did 9/11." He also proceeds to praise the Syrian soldier who is observing the enemy.
Senator Black on #HTS terrorists: "This is their final stand here in Idlib province. This is a very good time for us, for anyone who cares about terrorism. We have been fighting the War on Terror for 17 years with nothing to show, but the Syrian army has them cornered."
"The Syrian army cares very much about casualties, considering that what we have here is urban combat, a very brutal type of combat."
#Lavrov now: De-confliction b/n #Russia & #US in #Syria wotking wrll, when there's a need Americans turn to us for explanations of certain things and we do the same
#Lavrov now: When we intervened in #Syria in Sep'15 #ISIS wad at the gates of #Damascus. Not a single power that are today raising voices about humanity, rights, etc moved their finger to prevent #Daesh from almost capturing the city & making it the capital of their caliphate
#Lavrov on @realDonaldTrump tweet on #Idlib: #Trump's right-we need to avoid a humanitarian crisis there. That's what we always try to do w/ humanitarian corridors & other coverups for civilians unlike Americans,say,in #Raqqa who just ironed the city. Now they want to cover Nusra
#Iraq parliament may fail to decide today the largest coalition. The difference is significant: 1. Abadi and Moqtada will present a list including heads of groups and the total of MPs included 2. Ameri & Maliki will present a list with the signature of every MP supporting them/+
Abadi & Moqtada list includes tens of MPs who split and moved to Ameri/Maliki. They insist on representing the total of MPs on their list even if 30-40 left their coalition to the other side. /+
The oldest MP will head the Parliament and will decide what to do: either accept one of the two lists or send it to the court to decide.
The Kurds haven't decided, to this instant, which side to support. They are caught between their demands and the #USA pressure/+
"..from my contacts w/ al Jubeir, other colleagues from the region it appears they all grew stronger in understanding that the reality is government of #Syria providing sovereignty & legitimate security interests of its country."
3/3 #Lavrov concludes: "#Russia always urged unity in #Arab family. Today the family has many problems. But we argue for it to live the way they want in their region. and resist attempts to have their own interests manipulated for the sake of someone else's geopolitical goals."
Oh, no, no. The President of #Ukraine is surely wrong, and all those journalists who know shit about Ukraine, the international organizations that are too compromised or cowardly to speak the truth because it demands action, etc. know better. 🙄 mil.gov.ua/en/news/2018/0…
In all seriousness, just think about how profoundly twisted this is. #Ukraine has stated unambiguously that #Russia is waging an unlawful interstate war on Ukraine, and NOT ONE body of political note or power will even acknowledge this basic truth!
1.) Prof. Barbara Oakley of Oakland University and the author of a book on learning writes that contrary to the new movement to make #STEM subjects of which #maths is the sine qua non a fun to learn.
All learning isn't-and shouldn't be "fun".
2) Even though the following 👇👇👇Rhymes were developed to make learning #maths fun!
. @AmbJohnBolton sat down with #Russia's NSC Sec in Geneva for about 5 hours talking international security issues, #Ukraine, #Syria, #Iran. Earlier this year Patrushev was placed on #US sanctions list but said "it was no impediment for him to be meeting [American officials]"
Patrushev says himself & #Bolton failed to sign a joint communique cuz "#US wanted to include the point on "#Russia/n interference" which we didn't find acceptable.We,in turn,asked them to state that US own interference into other states' affairs is unacceptable - they refused"
The amount of crap and baseless claims that #AssociatedPress#AP is filling in into the mainstream media is unbelievable, especially regarding #Yemen !
#UAE’s heroic #counterterrorism operations in #Yemen against #AlQaeda are well spoken and praised by the #US Forces; but our friends at #AP are so happy to debunk those live operations and efforts easily !
US Forces and defense sec. didn’t call us the #LittleSparta for no reason; we fought like warriors in the face of #Iran’s terror, presented sacrifices of our men, saved poor #Yemeni children, and rebuilt the south of #Yemen ! #AP needs to learn ...
6yrs ago #Jerusalem, #IDF Rep:
"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
Why has @AndrewScheer nor any other #CPC member mentioned the Saudi dustup? Could it be that all these trips to Washington that they’ve been making lately was the beginning of the instigation of a plan to hang Canada out to dry. I’ll explain my thoughts in a thread. #cdnpoli
Recall that Harper went to Washington on July 2 and recall also that the prime minister‘s office was surprised when the news was leaked. PM’s office found out because the White House called the #PMO to ask if he was bringing his wife.
That suggests to me that #Harper may have passed himself off as the prime minister when he set up those meetings. Why else would they ask the #PMO if Trudeau was bringing his wife?
#UX spotlight: @Flipkart's Wishlist. 1. Do not ask me for confirmation when I click to delete an item. Why? Because you've just made me click twice - and move my mouse - when one should have sufficed.
2. Instead, just delete the item from the wishlist and give me an option to "Undo" the action when you show me a confirmation message. OK? 3. Do not show the confirmation message at the bottom of the page, hidden in the footer. #US@Flipkart
