The “front of victory” is commanded by a CIA agent. Sheikh Nabil Naim, a former al-Qaida party, recorded a video stating that the leader of the Dzhebhat al-Nusra group trying to overthrow President Assad is a CIA agent. Paul Joseph Watson (Infowars.com; source of translation - Mixednews.ru).
Nabil Naim is considered the leader of the jihad movement in Egypt. He once led al-Qaeda's Safwa training camp, where he met with bin Laden. Being involved in the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, after the attempt on the life of Hosni Mubarak, Sheikh Naim was imprisoned. He was released after the fall of the regime. Naim renounced violence and is now busy exposing his former comrades who are on wages to the CIA.
“Personally, I think that the leader of the Nusra army (Muhammad al-Javlani), who declared his support for Ayman al-Zawahiri, is a CIA agent in Al-Nusra,” sheikh Naim said.
Moreover, Naim called Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri a double American agent.
He warns An-Nusra terrorists fighting in Syria: “You are fighting in the war in Syria in the interests of America.” In the end, you "will be called terrorists, and will be killed or thrown into jail just as happened to us after Afghanistan." “These leaders are manipulating you, you will understand that you are dying, and the Americans, it turns out, are achieving their goals, not yours,” adds Naim.
Comrade Watson cites numerous indications that the Syrian insurgents have joined al-Qaeda terrorists: the fighters of the “Syrian Free Army” run to the “Dzhebhat al-Nusra”; The SSA "rebels" vowed to "fight the US" as soon as they finished with Assad; they were filmed more than once on video burning American and Israeli flags; they also filmed singing videos in which Osama bin Laden and the 11 attacks of September 2001 of the year are glorified; Finally, the SSA militants voiced a desire to see the al-Qaeda flag flying over the White House.
"The fact that the deadly weapon, which Washington is going to send, almost certainly will be in the hands of al Qaeda terrorists, who without hesitation use it against the interests of the United States, did not stop the mad rush to splash gasoline on a hellish fire, capable, as some experts warned, to turn into a fire of the third world war.
Russia blamed Saudi Arabia. The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Saudi Arabia of supporting international terrorists in Syria. This is stated in the statement of the official representative of the Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich, published on the website of the department, reports "Lenta.ru".
The Foreign Ministry said that Saudi Arabia finances international terrorists and extremist groups and provides them with weapons in order to “realize their own geopolitical ambitions at the expense of the blood and suffering of the Syrian people.”
So the Russian Foreign Ministry responded to the statement of Riyadh, who accused Russia of "unlimited military support for the massacres in Syria."
How the Americans “evacuated” Russian personnel from the base in Tartus. Will England («The Washington Post»; source of translation - "Inopressa") writes that "Russia evacuated all military personnel from a small naval base in Syria."
Will England said: “The Mediterranean base Tartus was the only stronghold of Russia in the Middle East. Although it is small, its importance has increased, as Russia continues to support the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in his war against the rebel forces. ”
Let us ask ourselves: where does information about evacuation come from? From unnamed sources, it turns out.
“The first message about the withdrawal of the Russian military from Syria was made in an interview with Mikhail Bogdanov, the deputy foreign minister, published in the newspaper Al-Hayat on Friday. Russian newspapers reported on Wednesday that unnamed sources in the Russian army and the Ministry of Defense confirmed the evacuation. ”
Russia's decision to withdraw from Tartus may indicate that it takes into account the possibility of intervention by the United States or by Israel, who said it would strike if the Syrian regime gets advanced anti-aircraft missiles. This was said by Andrew Tabler, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute. “This explains the behavior that otherwise seems to be contrary to common sense,” Tabler quoted the publication. “If the regime is doing well, you are not closing your base.”
However, the exit from Tartus will not prevent Russian deliveries of anti-aircraft and anti-ship missiles to Syria, the journalist further says. Comrade Bogdanov said that arms deliveries are made under the current contract. Answering the question when the deliveries would begin, he noted that the decision was made by the “high command”.
In fact, the staff at the base in Tartus remained where he was.
The Ministry of Defense of Russia called the reports on the withdrawal of Russian personnel from the logistics center of the Russian Navy from the Syrian port of Tartus to be inaccurate.
"The reports on the day before in a number of mass media about the withdrawal of the Russian personnel of the PSTO from the Syrian port of Tartus do not correspond to reality" SANA the message of the management of the press service and information of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
"Tartus is still the official point of basing and repairing Russian ships in the Mediterranean Sea and continues to perform its tasks in accordance with its intended purpose," the ministry said.
Moreover, the Russian defense ministry said that "the statement about the withdrawal of personnel of the PTTO in the Syrian Tartus is extremely incorrect in the context of the real situation."
The Emir of Qatar abdicated the throne. This writes Ivan Yakovina ("Lenta.ru").
Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani made a televised address to his subjects, in which he announced that he was abdicating the throne in favor of his son, Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.
The journalist notes that Sheikh Hamad came to power in Qatar in 1995 after a bloodless coup. He became famous for his success in the field of modernization: Hamad gave women equal rights with men, opened the first Catholic Church in the country, adopted the first constitution, expanded the rights of his subjects, and carried out economic reforms.
Qatar’s GDP during the eighteen years of the Emir’s rule grew from 9 to 182 billions of dollars (increased by a factor of 20). The country became the richest in the world in terms of GDP (at purchasing power parity) in per capita terms, having surpassed Luxembourg in the lead last year (102211 versus 79785 dollars per year, IMF data).
The basis of the growth of Qatari prosperity - the trade in natural gas. The funds received from the sale of minresources, writes I. Yakovina, the Qatari rulers spent "not so much on themselves" as on the development of infrastructure. At the same time, they invested in various projects around the world: “from Tajik apiaries to world-famous British auction houses”.
“However, Hamad also did not forget about investments in his own economy. With his direct participation, the previously little-known regional “Qatar Airways” broke into the world leaders in air travel, becoming one of the six airlines that received the highest five-star rating. Doha has become a sparkling metropolis attracting businessmen from all over the world. The American architect Amy Em Pei, who had retired from work, built the Museum of Islamic Art in the capital - the best of its kind. But perhaps Hamad’s main investment was the world's first Arab-language satellite channel, Al-Jazeera.
For a decade and a half, Hamad turned the country from a little-known emirate into the largest player in the region and in the world. This became apparent with the beginning of a series of uprisings in Arab countries in 2011. Qatar has managed to achieve the establishment of friendly regimes in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, and is now working on the overthrow of the Syrian President Assad.
The foreign policy of the departed Emir was subordinated to the goal of creating a single Arab space. His son, 33-year-old sheikh Tamim, who in recent years has been preparing for the throne, will have to complete this mission. Tamim is not the eldest son of the departing emir; He was rejected "for reasons of incompetence." The heir was appointed Tamim, received a military education in the UK. According to most experts, he will continue the policy of his father.
Ayatollah Khamenei knows the easy solution. Iran's supreme leader said that there is an easy solution to the nuclear issue. It can be brought to life if the United States and its allies take the deal seriously. This was reported by Iranian media on Thursday, writes MIGnews.com.
“We have a solution to the nuclear problem that is to be discussed with the West,” says Khamenei. According to him, the US is trying to find new excuses to block progress in the negotiations on Tehran’s nuclear program.
Afghan drugs: nowhere worse. Igor Belov ("Voice of Russia") interviewed Viktor Ivanov, Director of the Federal Drug Control Service of the Russian Federation in Vienna at the presentation of the World Drug Report.
According to Comrade Ivanov, "the problem of phenomenal drug production in Afghanistan is not articulated clearly." The actions in relation to drug production in Afghanistan compared to how it is done in Colombia or Mexico, are disproportionate. If in these countries annually more than half of the coca bushes are destroyed, in Afghanistan only about 2%. The head of the Federal Drug Control Service also noted that without the drug lab, heroin cannot appear, and they can be found only in the Russian sector, in the hard-to-reach regions of Badakhshan adjacent to Tajikistan, 763.
After the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the situation “has nowhere to deteriorate”, since production has reached such proportions that “no more than 30% of the annual drug production in Afghanistan is realized. That is, in fact, there is a process of accumulation of drugs in secret warehouses in Afghanistan, ”Ivanov said.
South African feces - for Obama? On the eve of the arrival of the American President in South Africa, demonstrators poured liquid sewage at the Cape Town International Airport, passes the channel "RT".
According to Breitbart, the activists who organized the “offensive performance” stated that the action was not directed at the US President personally, but was only part of the toilet wars for a policy of cleanliness in the capital of South Africa.
The media write that a hooligan prank could have been arranged by the Congress of South African unions, which technically run the country along with the African National Congress. The organization had previously intended to disrupt Obama’s visit. The Congress of South African Trade Unions has a negative attitude towards US foreign policy. Her organization considers imperialistic and militaristic.
As noted by "RT", local Muslim groups who called for the arrest of Obama for war crimes also planned to join the protests. Several academics at the University of Johannesburg are planning to boycott the ceremony of awarding the host of the White House with a doctoral degree from this university.
75-year-old pensioner with a bomb. British law enforcement authorities arrested a man who allegedly assembled and planted a bomb at Walsall Mosque (a city near Birmingham).

Not so much. The Court of Cassation of Italy decided to reduce the amount of the fine that the holding company of the Berlusconi family "Fininvest" should pay to competitors, writes correspondent ITAR-TASS Vera Shcherbakova.
According to the previous decision of the Court of Appeal, Fininvest was obliged to pay 564,2 million euros to the company "Chir", owned by Carlo De Benedetti. The reason for this was the recognition of violations and facts of corruption by Fininvest during negotiations on the takeover of the publishing house Mondadori, which was claimed by ChIR. Litigation lasts more than 20 years.
Judge Pasquali Fimiani ruled that the fine should be revised downwards. The final amount must be determined by the appellate court.
Former Spanish treasurer imprisoned. The judge of the National Court of Justice of Spain Pablo Rus decided to take into custody without the right of release on bail Luis Barsenas - the former treasurer of the ruling People's Party. He is suspected of illegal financial transactions, due to which he held about 48 million euros in Swiss bank accounts. This tells correspondent ITAR-TASS Alexander Chernosvitov.
Barsenas' business, which has been going on for years, has caused a wide public response in Spain. In the course of the investigation, not only the facts of possible corruption in the ranks of the ruling party, but also information about the illegal payments to its leaders, became known.
After the arrest of Barsenas, the Minister of Justice of Spain, Alberto Ruiz Gallardon, confined himself to stating that "the government always respects the decisions of the judiciary."
750 litas - the price of a reminder of Stalin. In Lithuania, a public figure, former leader of the Unity organization Valery Ivanov, was fined. 9 May he showed people a portrait of Stalin. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Delfi.lt.
The amount of the fine was 750 Litas (approximately 260 dollars). The mentioned poster with Stalin, kept at Ivanov's house, the court decided to confiscate.
According to the portal 15min.lt, a public man was punished for violating the ban on public demonstration of communist symbols.
With a poster depicting Soviet marshals, including Stalin, Ivanov arrived at the Antakalnis cemetery, where memorable events were held on the occasion of Victory Day. Some of the people gathered there expressed dissatisfaction with the poster.
“If we fear our generals, then we are not Russians, but *****. I am not afraid, I served my time, - answered Ivanov. - What are we, not Russian? Now they are even afraid to hang it on Red Square. ”
A social activist with a poster approached the tomb of the unknown soldier. He stood there so that the poster was visible to all who laid flowers at the Eternal Flame.
As “Lenta” reminds, in the past Ivanov was convicted for insulting the memory of the dead 13 in January 1991 (more than ten people died in the assault of the Vilnius TV tower by Soviet paratroopers). He argued that the Soviet security forces were not involved in the death of the Lithuanians. Ivanov served a year in a strict regime colony.

Protests in Brazil. Yesterday, mass protest demonstrations continued in a number of major cities in Brazil: Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Florianópolis, and others. The most stormy performances took place in Fortaleza on the outskirts of the Castelan stadium, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Igor Varlamov.
About 5 thousand people took part in the demonstration. The situation became tense after radical young people broke through the line of police cordons, but were further stopped by a special battalion and mounted police. To disperse the demonstrators, the police used tear gas.
Provocateurs set fire to previously brought car tires. Vandals burned a car, from which journalists of the TV channel were reporting. Police have arrested more than 80 rioters.
In two weeks during the mass protests five people died. As the authorities emphasize, the death of these people was not directly related to the actions of law enforcement agencies.
Brazilian authorities seek to establish a dialogue with the participants of street performances. The task is complicated by the fact that the mass movement has not yet put forward leaders.
There was a document, there was no document ... Ivan Tretyakov ("Voice of Russia") reports that the television company Univision has published a copy of the transit document that the Ecuadorian authorities allegedly issued to Edward Snowden. Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño refused to comment on the information channel.
According to the text of the document, the authorities of the countries in which Snowden will be in transit should assist him so that he can easily get to the capital of Ecuador. The document allegedly allows an American to come to Ecuador to consider the question of granting him political asylum.
As follows from the text of the document, its design involved the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and the paper was issued by the consul of Ecuador, Fidel Narvaez, who had previously dealt with the question of granting asylum to Julian Assange.
History with the issuance of the document was accompanied by confusion with the dates. As reported by Univision, the intended document was issued on Saturday, 22 June. On Sunday, Snowden left Hong Kong and flew to Moscow. It was only in the evening of the same day that he sought asylum in Ecuador: the head of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote about this on Twitter.
As the "Lenta.ru" With reference to El Comercio, Ecuador has denied the issuance of transit documents to Edward Snowden. Representatives of the local government said at a press conference that the government of Ecuador did not give permission to issue documents that would allow Snowden to go to this country. According to them, if these documents were, they would not have legal force.
This information was confirmed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ecuador, notes France-Presse. They claimed that Snowden did not have a refugee card, no passport, or any other document that Ecuadorian diplomats could give him.
With regard to the timing of the consideration of Snowden's application for political asylum in Ecuador, then there is complete ambiguity. Ricardo Patiño only denied press reports that the process could take several months.
Russians must learn: Americans are serious people. In the US, they consider that Moscow has the opportunity to send E. Snowden to his homeland. US senators will work on this issue. They are even going to prepare a special law to force Russia to extradite a former CIA officer, reports the channel "RT".
“We are currently exploring options. I try to bring together a package of documents in order to make the Russians understand the seriousness of our intentions, ”quotes the words of Senator Lindsay Graham ITAR-TASS. Mr. Graham is confident that Washington "needs to give its answer at this moment determining for bilateral relations." However, he refused to specify which package of measures in question.
The chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, Robert Menendez, in an interview with Daily Beast, expressed confidence that “Russia has opportunities for extradition, and Russians should use them.” According to him, "if this does not happen, such a turn will be a challenge for bilateral relations."
The White House believes that Russia has all the possibilities for issuing US Snowden. This was stated by Deputy Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Ben Rhodes, reports correspondent RIA "Novosti" Alexey Bogdanovsky.
“We believe that Mr. Snowden committed a crime, that the unauthorized dissemination of such secret information harms national security,” said Mr. Rhodes. According to him, Snowden not only committed a crime in the United States, but also travels without a passport recalled by the authorities of the state.
“So Russia has many reasons to expel him and cooperate with other countries to bring him to court,” added Rhodes, who held a briefing in Dakar, where the US President is visiting.
Long history of surveillance. The administration of Barack Obama for two years allowed the NSA to monitor the e-mail correspondence of Americans, as well as their activity on the Internet. This was reported by the British newspaper "Guardian", reports from London correspondent ITAR-TASS Grigory Zimenkov.
According to the secret documents received by this publication, the program was launched under George W. Bush in 2001. She acted until 2011. To continue the data collection, NSA staff required permission: his judge issued every 90 days.
In 2011, the White House administration decided to complete this program.
US intelligence agencies before 2011 did collect data. This was acknowledged, speaking in Baltimore, by the director of the US National Security Agency and the head of the Cyber Command of the US Armed Forces, General Keith Alexander.
After the September 11 2001 attacks, the NSA spied on American citizens and foreigners in the US. The content of the correspondence was allegedly not intercepted. The program, which accumulates colossal amounts of data, was curtailed at the initiative of the NSA in 2011 - due to its inefficiency, said Alexander.
According to him, the program “did not satisfy the requirements that we had, and we decided that we could better protect civil liberties and the inviolability of personal life if we split up with it.” All information collected by the NSA as part of the program has been destroyed.
Mr. Alexander argued that two secret NSA programs aimed at intercepting data helped prevent 54 from various terrorist conspiracies. In 42 cases, the use of programs has helped thwart the plans for committing terrorist acts, in 12 - to prevent the transfer of material assistance to extremists. The exploitation of the programs allowed 25 arrests in Europe, 11 in Asia and 5 in Africa. Thirteen plots trudged on American territory.
Half a million signatures. More than 512 thousands of people signed a petition demanding that the US Congress put an end to the collection of data on telephone conversations and electronic correspondence by the American special services. Reports about it correspondent ITAR-TASS Igor Shamshin with reference to "nbc".
The petition was initiated by the American non-profit organization Mozilla Foundation and the American Civil Rights Struggle Union (ACLU). Together with dozens of other non-governmental and human rights organizations in mid-June, they formed a front to combat the practice of listening and surveillance. The impetus for such activity was the publication of revelations by Edward Snowden.
Signatures on the network petition put citizens of different countries. More actively than others, Americans and Europeans express discontent with the actions of the special services.
James Cartwright came under suspicion. The former deputy head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, retired Marine Corps General James Cartwright, has become involved in the investigation of a leak in the media about American cyber attacks on Iran. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to "NBC".
We are talking about the virus Stuxnet, which attacked the computers of Iranian nuclear stations in 2010, disabling the centrifuges used to enrich uranium. The creation of the virus was attributed to American and Israeli intelligence agencies. In 2012, The New York Times wrote about an American secret program aimed at disabling Iranian centrifuges. According to the newspaper, the head of this program was General Cartwright.
NBC reported that a source of information leakage about Stuxnet was sought in the Obama administration. Cartwright, an adviser to Obama, got into the FBI's eyesight at the end of 2012 of the year.
The TV channel did not specify other details of the investigation.
Deadly weapon. Michael Remke («Die Welt»; source of translation - "Inopressa") talked about the American soldier who killed the 2746 man.
Dillard Johnson - the most productive soldier of the American army, writes «Die Welt». A 48-year-old war veteran in a memoir claims that he killed an enemy soldier during an Iraqi war.
Most, according to the commander of the Carnivorous Special Forces, he destroyed from small arms, the rest were killed in hand-to-hand combat with a knife and bare hands.
Where does such accuracy come from? A soldier is obliged to her by one commander who ordered him to “make a list in which each dead person would be marked with a line.”
In the book of memoirs, the author, among other things, tells how he restrained the attack “44 Iraqi tanks and 20 thousand soldiers. "
From the heroic military service of an officer in retirement - 37 awards for bravery, and also - a bullet, entrenched in his leg after being seriously wounded.
Guilty of thirty points. Yesterday, the US prosecutor's office found the organizer of the bombings at the Boston Marathon Johar Tsarnaev guilty of 30 counts, including the killing of four people and the use of weapons of mass destruction.

In the US, you can not write with chalk on asphalt. As the fbii.org With reference to The Huffington Post, Jeff Olson from San Diego faces up to 13 years in prison and a fine of more than 10 thousand dollars. What did he do? On the asphalt in front of the Bank of America, he wrote with slogans in chalk. Now this person is accused of vandalism. The court forbade his lawyer to appeal to freedom of speech and the First Amendment to the Constitution.
This 40-year-old resident of San Diego began to protest against large state-owned banks in 2011. His goal is to convince clients to abandon banking services in favor of public organizations involved in lending.
Several times a week he came to Bank of America and wrote in chalk: “Stop the big banks!”
Comrade Olson can be sentenced to pay 10 thousands of dollars and put in jail for 13 years.
A representative of the bank claimed in court that 6000 dollars had been spent on the destruction of the inscription.
Bank services, we will add on our own, even when it comes to washing chalk off the asphalt, they are expensive. This is an extra reminder that it would be better to refuse their services.
American holiday. The US Supreme Court overturned the provision of the federal “Marriage Protection Act”, which stated that marriage is a union of a man and a woman. From now on, elgabetershniki, formalized their relationship, are entitled to the same federal benefits as the "ordinary" husband and wife. About this - in the next review "Foreign Press".
“The Victory of Equality,” was the title of the editorial in The New York Times. In the long struggle to end discrimination against American gays and lesbians, a tremendous victory was won, the newspaper writes.
True, the Supreme Court “missed a historic chance to eliminate a long-standing injustice and left gays in many states as second-class people,” the publication complains. Most Americans understand that it is not good to humiliate gays, the article says, but the court refrained from a broad verdict that would secure the same marriage right for same-sex couples throughout the United States. “Perhaps the court considered that the country is not ready for such a comprehensive approach. If so, the court overestimated the ability of this problem to split society, but underestimated how much further delays would cost people, ”the newspaper writes.
“In the Supreme Court, same-sex marriages won,” is the title of the editorial in The Washington Post. This is a triumph in the ongoing struggle for equality, the newspaper writes, calling the repealed laws “discriminatory”.
"The decisions of the Supreme Court only confirmed how quickly the nation moved away from bias and approached a fundamental respect for all Americans," concludes the publication.
"In one year, the availability of same-sex marriage should double," Nate Silver predicts in the headline of a blog post on The New York Times. He declares the decisions of the US Supreme Court "the next victories of fighters for same-sex marriages on a global scale."
By August 1, same-sex marriages will become legal in 7 US states. “California, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Washington,” the author lists. In these 7 states, there are about 59 million people, which means that the availability of same-sex marriages, if we count by the share of the population, will more than double over the year.
“After the decisions on same-sex marriage, there were several proposals of the hand and heart,” the heading of the Wall Street Journal announces. In various US cities, fighters for gay rights met the decisions of the Supreme Court very emotionally, and some offered their loved ones to marry, narrate journalists Jeffrey Fowler, Tamara Odie and Derek Kravitz.
In the Castro area in San Francisco, a street party was held. In New York's Greenwich Village, at least a thousand people gathered for a rally for gay rights. In West Hollywood, several thousand people came out to celebrate - both homosexual and heterosexual couples.
1,4 billion to the Obama family. For the maintenance of the President of the United States and his relatives from the state budget is allocated almost 25 times more money than the British treasury spends on the entire royal family. In the 2011 year, notes fbii.org With reference to MrConservative.com, 1,4 billion dollars were spent on Barack Obama's family, and Windsors cost the taxpayers 57,8 $ million.
This huge amount of money the American president spends on flights, living in hotels, entertainment and salaries for subordinates. By the way, the costs for 2011 year were a record in the history of America.
Compared with his predecessors, Obama has the largest number of personnel, but this staff has the highest salaries. Obama has 469 subordinates, 226 of which earn more than 100 thousands of dollars a year.
For example, 102 thousands of dollars in 2011 was spent on ... a caretaker for a family dog. A cinema-operator is on duty in the White House (24 hours a day): what if someone from the president’s close associates wants to watch a movie.
Obama wants a nuclear war? Francis Boyle ("Global research"; source of translation - Mixednews.ru).
The journalist read the report of Barack Obama on the strategy of using the United States nuclear weapons from 21 June 2013, in which he found the most important thing on the 5 page:
“In the Review of the 2010 nuclear doctrine of the year, the Administration set a goal to provide the conditions under which the United States could safely accept the policy of turning deterrence of a nuclear attack into the sole purpose of US nuclear weapons. Although we cannot adopt such a policy now, the new leadership reaffirms its intention to work towards this goal over time. ”
Therefore, “nuclear deterrence” is not the policy of B. Obama’s administration, starting with the 2010 doctrine of the year.
And if so, the author writes, “this by default means that its (Obama administration’s policy) content is now and always has been and has always been an offensive, preventive war with the use of strategic nuclear weapons.”
Moreover, this policy will be implemented and supplemented by means of "combined non-nuclear strike capabilities", is indicated in the review-2013.
The entire review-2013 and Obama's latest proposals on the “reduction” of nuclear weapons, the author writes, should be understood in the context of the US desire to acquire the ability to conduct offensive preventive war with the use of strategic nuclear weapons, supplemented by non-nuclear strike forces.
All the missile defense systems Obama is in the process of deploying in Europe, Asia and the United States, said Boyle, are designed to give the US the ability to conduct an offensive preventive war using strategic nuclear weapons. Who are the opponents?
Among them, the author of the material calls Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and Syria.
“Everything else is just chatter. Including the one that comes from our Chief Delinquent. "Krasnodar diploma" Harvard Law School.
INF Treaty as an anachronism. Sergey Duz ("Voice of Russia") reports that the United States accused Russia of gross violation of the Treaty on the Elimination of Medium and Short Range Missiles. However, according to experts, not only is this a lie, the scandal itself was late too: after all, the INF Treaty has already lost its relevance.
"The Washington Times" drew attention to the new Russian missile "Yars-M" (range order 5500 kilometers). The Americans considered that this rocket was of medium range, and not intercontinental ballistic, as Moscow said. Russian experts disagree with this question. Military columnist, political scientist, deputy. Alexander Golts, editor-in-chief of the online journal Daily Journal, says:
“The Yars rocket, as is commonly known, is an intercontinental ballistic missile. It was created on the basis of the Topol-M missile, which is one of the main Russian strategic nuclear forces in the arsenal. As such, “Yars” is also included in the START Treaty, signed in 2010 year. Then both sides agreed that Yars is an ICBM and is being taken into account in the category of strategic carriers. ”
The incident with the characteristics of the rocket gave reason to talk about the relevance of the INF Treaty. Not so long ago, the head of the Russian presidential administration, Sergei Ivanov, called this document "controversial." And according to V. Putin, if Russia is in compliance with the terms of the INF Treaty, then some of its neighbors, on the contrary, develop shock systems. The head of state believes: "We cannot allow the balance of the strategic deterrence system to be upset, the effectiveness of our nuclear forces to be reduced."
Moscow, the journalist says, calls the INF Treaty a “relic of the cold war” and draws attention to India, Pakistan, Korea, China, Iran, Israel, which have short and medium-range missiles.
Therefore, there is a likelihood of Russia giving up its obligations under this treaty.
The chief editor of the magazine "National Defense" Igor Korotchenko says:
“This opportunity is provided. This will be determined by the president of Russia, whose competence includes this issue. Of course, the decision will be made taking into account the opinions of the interested ministries and departments, first of all, the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff. In my opinion, this agreement really looks a bit anachronistic. He signed under certain historical and political conditions: the friendship of Gorbachev and Reagan. Today, the contract has lost its relevance ... "
Thus, let us add, trumpeting the growing Russian threat, the mouthpieces of democracy in the face of The Washington Times and the like only confirm the fact that the cold war is not over. It continues, and the initiator of this continuation is not Moscow, but Washington, where the propagandists and the press workers nosuskannye they are ready to cling to any contrived reason for a new round of "cooling". And the matter has already reached the point that American alarmists - for example, Comrade Boyle, mentioned in the previous episode, foreshadow a hot war. Even nuclear.
