main news on the situation around Syria were not included in the issue of “Mosaics and covered in a special morning review "Syrian hot news: legal hooks justify invader Obama".

Fifth destroyer. According to France Press, a source in the US Department of Defense, the US Navy is sending the Stout destroyer to the Mediterranean. He will be the fifth American ship off the coast of Syria, said newsru.co.il.

The Pentagon reported redeployment a few hours after the Russian media reported that two ships of the Russian Navy had been sent to the Mediterranean.

The following is curious: RIA Novosti writes that the update of the Navy in the Mediterranean Sea is not related to the situation in Syria and is a planned rotation, but Interfax, citing a source in the General Staff, says the opposite.

Americans are ashamed of the government. Yesterday, anti-war demonstrations were held in several US cities, according to "Vesti".

In Washington, a protest staged at the walls of the White House. Activists made it clear that the arguments of Barack Obama in favor of military intervention are not convincing. The “irrefutable evidence” of Asad’s guilt is considered by the protesters to be fabricated.

Hundreds of pacifists took to the streets of New York with ATS flags and posters: "Hands off Syria."

“I am here because I am ashamed of the United States. I am ashamed that we are going to bomb another country. The United States should not interfere in the affairs of the Middle East. The American regime brings only death and destruction. The United States is the bloodiest regime that ever existed on our planet, ”says one of the opponents of the military escalation in Syria.

And in Europe, the alleged military operation in Syria is called "imperialist intervention." Such slogans, Vesti notes, were on posters of demonstrators in Greece: thousands of Athenians marched to the US embassy.

Anti-war demonstrations were held in Venezuela. Dozens of people came to the Syrian embassy in Caracas with UAR flags and portraits of Hugo Chávez.

Finally, in Sevastopol, NATO ships were greeted with a picket. On the pier, protesters put US flags and "sea mines."

Prompted where to bomb. On the "InoTV" A translation material appeared from Press TV (Iran).

Among other things, the report notes that the rebels who are fighting against the Syrian government with support from abroad, said: they were consulted about targets in Syria.

There was no demarche. The Russian representative was not satisfied with the demarche at the meeting of the "five" of the UN Security Council on Syria, according to the Russian Permanent Mission to the world organization. “The Russian representative came out when the meeting ended. It was not a demarche. Just some delegations did not come out for a long time, ”said the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the UN, reports "Sight" with reference to RIA "News".

Earlier, Arab media reported that the representatives of Russia and China left the emergency meeting of the Security Council.

Oil has risen in price. Statements by American politicians about the readiness to launch a military operation against the Syrian government caused an increase in oil prices, reports "RT".

The price of a barrel of Texas oil on the New York Commodity Exchange rose 2,9%, reaching 111 dollars 38 cents. This is the largest increase in the last two months, Bloomberg notes.

The price of a barrel of Brent North Sea oil blend rose 2,4% and reached 117 dollars and 2 cents per barrel.

If a military operation starts in Syria, the price of oil may rise even more, analysts at the French banking group Societe Generale say. "A possible attack on Syria will affect the region, possibly spreading to neighboring countries and leading to interference in the supply of raw materials throughout the Middle East," said Michael Whitner, a representative of the bank in New York.

The price of a barrel of “Brent” can reach 150 $.

Plans to intervene in the US Syrian crisis caused panic on the Far East stock exchanges: brokers worried about possible disruptions in the supply of oil, on which the industry of the Asia-Pacific countries depends. The Japanese TOPIX index fell by 2,4%, the Philippine stock market collapsed (the market index fell by 5,4%), the Thai SET index dropped by 20%.

Maduro told about the coincidences. The attempted assassination attempt on the Venezuelan president was to coincide with the US military operation in Syria. This was stated by the head of state, speaking in the state of Tachira, reports newsru.com.

According to Comrade Maduro, “the plans of the empire” (that is, the United States) to carry out its physical elimination at the same time as the attack on Syria is “a global offensive against independent countries that have raised the marks of a multipolar world, those who want peace, independence and prosperity .

“This empire must come to an end, and it must be revived on the basis of the values ​​that Martin Luther King defended,” the Itar-Tass quoted the head of state.

Maduro also said that the assassination scenario was developed by analogy with 2002 the year when the United States attack on Iraq was to coincide with the coup and the overthrow of Hugo Chávez.

The Venezuelan President called on the international community to do everything possible to stop the invasion of Syria. “There can be no justification for attacking Syria,” he said.

Newsru.com recalls that this week the Venezuelan authorities announced the arrest of two Colombian citizens charged with plotting an assassination attempt against President Maduro and Parliament Speaker Diosdado Cabello. 22-year-old Victor Getche and 18-year-old Eric Worth were detained in the state of Miranda by Venezuelan intelligence officers. They found two AR-15 rifles with laser sights, a stock of cartridges, military kits and photographs of Maduro and Cabello.

Israel unfolding the Patriots. Israel has begun to deploy Patriot complexes in the north. As transmits "RG" With reference to ITAR-TASS, the decision is connected with a sharp aggravation of the situation around Syria.

It is also reported that in Israel, the demand for gas masks has tripled.

Dug up something about Blair and Bush. In Britain, the investigation of the actions of former Prime Minister Tony Blair was suspended. It was Blair 10 years ago who backed the military invasion of Iraq, recalls "RT".

The results of the investigation into the circumstances under which Tony Blair dragged Britain into the Iraq war will be published only in 2014. A study by former diplomat John Chilkot, who studied intelligence data on the alleged presence of an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, aims to "help the British government cope with situations like the invasion of Iraq." However, according to The Independent, the researchers and the government cannot agree on what information from the report should be made public.

The report says that the close relationship between Tony Blair and George W. Bush may be the key to a conclusion that will refute the official version of events.

The aggressor and the hypocrite. Western countries led by the United States accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons. But the United States itself has used chemical weapons against civilians many times. The correspondent reminds of it. "RT" Marina Portnay.

“The killing of civilians without distinction, the killing of women, children and witnesses through chemical weapons - this is an outrage upon morality, ”the US Secretary of State said.

Who, if not him, a Vietnam War veteran, knows that 50 years ago the Americans used a chemical called Agent Orange there.

Christopher Busby, a member of the European Commission on Radiation Risk, explained: “This substance had side effects. It is very genotoxic and causes congenital malformations in many people. It had many terrible genetic consequences for those against whom it was applied. ”

According to the Vietnamese Red Cross, since the end of the war in 1975, approximately 3 million people have been infected with Agent Orange.

Well, and Iraq. There, the US chemical weapons will not be forgotten for a long time. After the invasion of American troops, the number of children with congenital malformations has increased incredibly. Babies are born without eyes, hands, legs. According to scientists, people received doses of white phosphorus and depleted uranium.

“In my opinion, all the genetic consequences that are now observed in Iraq are the result of the use of weapons using uranium. Depleted and non-depleted uranium of a new type. This is a terrible weapon. It completely destroyed the genetic integrity of the Iraqi people, ”says Busby.

Writer and lawyer Eva Golinger says: “In its foreign policy, the United States often blames other countries for doing it themselves. The whole world knows about the double standards of the United States. On the moral and political hypocrisy of their government. "

Egypt against the invasion of Syria. As transmits 9tv.co.il With reference to Allainjules.com, the Defense Minister of the Provisional Egyptian Government, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, said he would close the Suez Canal for the passage of transport and military ships related to the upcoming operation against Syria.

Comrade al-Sisi said that Egypt remains committed to an allied treaty with Syria, and therefore does not intend to participate in the preparation of the attack.

The general noted that "the experience of the Iraqi and Libyan wars taught the Egyptians a lot."

As Igor Subbotin writes ("MK"), The Suez Canal is restricted for the passage of American ships, reported by “Les Observateurs” with reference to Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The military declared the channel "free" for all ships except the US.

As the journalist notes, “the meaning of such a decision is incomprehensible, because American troops can easily strike at Syria and from the Mediterranean Sea, where the destroyers of the United States Navy are already there.”

Interestingly, amid this information, the American ally - the United Kingdom - suspended 49 licenses to export products to Egypt intended for the armed forces, including the Air Force and internal security forces. He writes about it "RG" with reference to ITAR-TASS.

Import of spare parts for helicopters and airplanes, special software and means of communication will be prohibited.

Vincent Cable, the British Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills, said: “We have decided to suspend all export licenses for goods that can be used for internal repression. So we want to send a clear signal that we condemn any violence in Egypt. ”

Hidden threat. The head of the National Security Council of Saudi Arabia, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, in a conversation with the Russian president, covertly threatened terrorist attacks at the Sochi Olympics. This was written by the British newspaper "The Telegraph", reports KM.ru.

A spokesman for the Arab state said that he “guarantees the safety of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi next year,” and then noted that “Chechen militant groups that pose various threats to the Olympic Games are under our control.”

In response, the Russian leader reminded the prince of Saudi Arabia’s support for Chechen separatists, which lasted until the beginning of the 2000s, and stressed that bin Sultan’s words clearly resonate with the overall objectives of the fight against terrorism.

Devotee of Riyadh. The message about the combat readiness of the Saudi armed forces appeared on the background of statements about the impending invasion of the Western coalition in Syria. Earlier, Riyadh declared its support for Washington in a military operation against the forces of Bashar Assad, notes "RT".

The Saudi Ground Forces Command Center has ordered units to continuously report on their combat readiness. Ground forces, numbering 80 thousand people - the main and most numerous type of aircraft in the country. In the arsenal of the Arabian infantry is more than 1 thousand tanks, 400 mortars, 170 self-propelled artillery systems, 900 Shahin air defense systems, American-made Stinger and Red Eye man-portable air defense systems.

Portrait in the toilet. Zimbabwean citizen Takura Mufumisi was accused of violating election laws. According to "Lenta.ru" referring to France-Presse, the 26-year-old Zimbabwean blamed the misuse of the electoral poster featuring President Robert Mugabe. The accused 24 July ripped the poster into strips, which he tried to use as toilet paper.

According to the witness, in one of the bars in Masvingo, Mr. Mufumisi took an election poster and went to the toilet with him. The witness not only managed to trace further manipulations with the portrait, but also made a civil arrest: he detained the alleged violator and handed him over to the police.

Bubonic plague in Kyrgyzstan. In Kyrgyzstan, three people showed symptoms of bubonic plague. These people are residents of the same village from which the 15-year-old was deceased from the bubonic plague the other day, reports newsru.com with reference to Gazeta.ru.

All three are isolated and receive medical care.

According to ITAR-TASS, in the Issyk-Kul region of the republic, doctors monitor the condition of a 131 person who has been in contact with a deceased teenager. Now "a number of isolated individuals have a fever, they have taken tests."

The link of Russian fighters will appear in the Ministry of Defense of Belarus. He writes about it "RG" with reference to RIA "News".

In addition, Russia will create its own territory in Belarus aviation base, which will be located in the city of Lida (near the border of Poland and Lithuania).

According to the head of the Ministry of Defense of Belarus Yuri Zhadobin, the base will begin to function in 2013 year.

The Baumgertner affair. The government of the Russian Federation is closely monitoring the situation with the detention in Belarus of Uralkali’s CEO Vladislav Baumgertner, said Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. “We continue to consider the current situation unacceptable. I want to note once again that Baumgertner arrived at the negotiations in Minsk at the invitation of Prime Minister Mikhail Myasnikovich, ”Dvorkovich quoted as saying. "Voice of Russia" with reference to Interfax.

Dvorkovich stressed that "the Russian government had nothing to do with the scandal that arose, but our position was that it was necessary to promote either normalization of relations or civilized divorce."

“Given the general nature of the current situation, we are forced to look more closely and seriously at a number of issues,” the Russian Deputy Prime Minister warned. The government of the Russian Federation has instructed agencies to “deal more intensively” with the risks of importing agricultural products from Belarus into the Russian Federation, Dvorkovich said. According to him, "we also have complaints about the quality and safety of a number of products." In addition, given the openness of the borders, there are great risks of supplying products from third countries through Belarus, the deputy prime minister said in a statement.

Some details of the “Baumgertner case” on the “BO” are set forth in the article "Comrade Onishchenko and Belarusian microbes".

Soviet flag over the Crimea. Unidentified persons kidnapped the flag of Ukraine, set by the Crimean soldiers of 23 in August on Mount Zaman (western spur of Mount Tyrka in the Simferopol region). Instead of a blue-and-yellow cloth, they tied a red flag to the flagpole with a hammer and sickle. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to "Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine".

A two-by-three Ukrainian flag was mounted at an altitude of 1067 meters above sea level by soldiers of a mountain-infantry battalion of a separate coastal defense brigade. The ceremony was timed to Flag Day, which Leonid Kuchma approved in August 2004.

In Lithuania, they celebrate the anniversary of the departure of the "invaders". Lithuanian Minister of State Protection (Defense) Jozas Olekas will open today in the Sejm an exhibition of photographs of Romas Jurgaitis and documentary materials from Lithuania and Russia devoted to the 20 anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Lithuania, reports correspondent RIA "Novosti" Irina Pavlova.

31 August 1993, the last Russian soldier left Lithuania.

On Saturday in the major cities of Lithuania, the ceremony of raising the national flag and the solemn construction of Lithuanian troops will be held.

On September 1, a solemn flag-raising ceremony will take place at the Parliament Square with the participation of the leadership and members of the Lithuanian Seimas, government members, signatories of the Lithuanian Independence Act, leadership of the Lithuanian army, and representatives of the diplomatic corps.

American friends. The issues of energy and cyber security, economic cooperation and relations with the countries of the Eastern Partnership and Russia will be discussed by the Presidents of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia with Barack Obama in Washington, reports correspondent RIA "Novosti" Irina Pavlova.

During the meeting, great attention will be paid to geopolitical changes and processes that pose a threat to regional security. The presidents of the Baltic States and the United States will discuss economic cooperation and negotiations between the EU and the United States on a transatlantic trade agreement.

A discussion will be held on the diversification of energy supply sources: after all, America, as noted, has the opportunity to export significant volumes of liquefied gas, the price of which is lower than European.

Whose gas will go to Moldova? Vitaly Kropman ("Deutsche Welle") wrote that in August 27 of Moldova began construction of a gas pipeline with Romania. Until the end of 2014, the former Soviet republic will have access to the European gas market - as soon as the construction of the 42-kilometer gas pipeline is completed, which will connect the Moldovan city of Ungheni with the Romanian city of Iasi.

The total cost of the project is estimated at 28 million euros, a quarter of which will provide the European Union, according to DPA. 9 million euros pledged to provide the Romanian government. The capacity of the pipeline will be 1 billion cubic meters per year, which will cover about a third of the gas needs of Moldova.

As noted by France-Press, the European Commission cannot answer from where gas will be supplied to Moldova.

Gas news came from Poland.

The Poles will live on their gas. According to "BBC", Polish media reported on the successful experience in producing their own shale gas. And now, analysts predict the deliverance of Warsaw from the Russian “gas dependence”

According to unnamed experts, the process of gas production in the north of Poland was the most successful of all shale experiments in the EU.

It is interesting to note that, as geologists say, of all European countries, Poland probably has the largest reserves of shale gas, and only some international energy companies have already left the country - after unsuccessful trials.

About Kosovo. As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Oleg Zelenin, Belgrade and Pristina dispersed in the UN Security Council on the prospects for the continuation of the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo, established in 1999 after the end of the war in the Serbian region.

Speaking at an open debate in the Security Council yesterday, the Foreign Minister of the self-proclaimed republic, Enver Khojai, called for the abolition of UNMIK, replacing it with a political bureau, which will be engaged in “preparing for the adoption” of Kosovo to the United Nations.

Serbian Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkich spoke in favor of continuing the work of the UN mission, pointing out the important role it can play in the implementation of the Brussels agreements. According to him, in the quest for the abolition of the mission, “Pristina states that it undermines the process of recognizing Kosovo’s unilaterally proclaimed independence.” Mrkich recalled that in accordance with the UN Security Council resolution 1244, which was established by UNMIK, its task "is not to support the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo", but to "ensure security, stability and respect for human rights in the province."

The elite Swedish school practiced torture with an iron. In Sweden, the elite boarding school Lundberg was closed. This was done after it turned out that the “old” students burned the new students with irons. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to "The Local".

The director and management of Lundberg is now fired. The school is closed for six months.

Earlier, the state school inspection also had complaints against Lundsberg. The terrible facts were revealed: students were forced to eat manure and forced to oral sex.

By the way, Prince Carl Philip, the youngest son of Carl XVI Gustav, the king of Sweden, was formed at this school for some time.

Fritz behind the wheel in Russia. Wolfgang Büscher («Die Welt»; source abbr. translation - "Inopressa") talked about how Russian roads caught up with fear.

“The big roads in Russia are very good, I saw whole armies of workers in professional reflective uniforms and with new road equipment imported from the West. And then suddenly - somewhere between Moscow and the Latvian border - this: the highway suddenly ends, and where just asphalt was just left, only gravel remains. ”


The author continues:

“To understand what it is, imagine a wadi, a dry stony river bed. Splash of rubble, cobblestones and potholes, and besides, there is also dust from hundreds of cars ... What if I break glass with a stone? And if the tire bursts? All these trucks are behind me — will they wait for the German Fritz to change the tire? ... I sit straight as a string, tensely looking forward, every time a damn stone comes along, twisting the wheel ... Sometimes hope slips. Bulk road! But no, soon it ends again and wadi begins. ”


The key fear is undoubtedly this: "... will they wait for the German Fritz to change the tire?"

In Britain, more and more homeless. The British government is spending hundreds of millions of pounds on solving the problems of homeless people, but young people who do not have a roof over their heads are becoming more and more. The correspondent tells "RT" Sarah Firth.

When Boris Johnson became mayor of London in 2008, he promised that by 2012 there would be no homeless on the streets of the British capital. He did not fulfill the goal.

According to the Chain homeless database, when Johnson became mayor, the number of London homeless people was 3472 people. By 2012, it increased to 6437. Many live on the street for about a month.

“We've been stuck here for months, you know what I mean? - says the homeless Londoner. - Many have had problems with bunk houses before, but it’s impossible to bring people to live in front of the administration building. Instead of doing something about it, they call the police and chase us away. It is not right. But this is what happens. ”

Cancellation of sentence to doctor Shakila Afridi. 29 August Pakistani court overturned the verdict to doctor Shakil Afridi, who helped the CIA get on the trail of Osama bin Laden, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to Reuters.

According to the verdict of the appeals instance, the lower judge exceeded the authority, sending Afridi to jail on 33 of the year. Now the case of the doctor will be sent to a new trial.

The explanatory part of the verdict has not yet been published, and it is not clear what exactly made the appellate court review the sentence.

Afridi was convicted of treason in May 2012. He was found guilty of having helped the United States by obtaining the phone number of one of the terrorist’s authorized representatives, Abu Ahmed Al-Kuwaiti. The American authorities rebelled with Afridi’s verdict, suspending financial assistance to Pakistan and threatening with other sanctions.

Shooting in North Korea. As the correspondent RIA "Novosti" Ekaterina Plyasunkova, North Korean authorities publicly shot about ten people convicted of producing and distributing pornography. Among those executed was former beloved Kim Jong-un, writes the South Korean newspaper "Chosun Ilbo."

The soloist of the Orchestra of the Electro Musical Instruments, popular in North Korea, Hyun Son Wol, was arrested on August 17 on charges of violating North Korean law. Other members of the Orchestra were also arrested, as well as musicians and dancers from the Wangsejang group.

All of them were accused of filming pornography and distributing pornographic material. These videos could get to the Chinese market. Moreover, some of those arrested were found copies of the Bible (it is banned in the DPRK).

The verdict was carried out on August 20 in the presence of other members of the above musical groups. The families of those arrested were sent to prisons and camps.

As the correspondent reminds. RIA "Novosti", the rumors about the novel Kim Jong-un and Hyun Song Wol go to the press for a long time. According to media reports, Eun met the singer at the beginning of 2000's, but the romance between them was broken at the insistence of Kim Jong Il. The singer of the popular music group was then married to the personal security officer of the DPRK leader.

Japan will change the constitution. According to the DPRK government newspaper "Mingzhu Joseon", Japan’s intention to revise the "peaceful constitution" speaks about the country's plans to "create conditions for external expansion," notes "RT".

“Japan, in fact, is seeking to lift all restrictions that prohibit this country from conducting overseas military operations,” the essence of the ITAR-TASS edition reports. “If Tokyo’s efforts to expand the scope of its military actions will be legalized by law, Japan will officially acquire the status of a military power, and in Asia there will be a real threat of war.”

Thousands of gold tons. As the jnet.ru, the reserves of monetary gold in the international reserves of the Russian Federation in July increased compared with June by 0,6% - to 32,2 million ounces (1001,5 tons). This is evidenced by the materials of the Bank of Russia.

The physical volume of gold in the international reserves has been steadily increasing: on 1 January 2007 years of his reserves were 402 ton on 1 January 2008 years - 450 tons, 1 January 2009 years - 519 tons, 1 January 2010 - 637,6 ton on 1 January 2011 - 789,9 tons, on 1 January 2012 - 883,2 tons, on 1 January 2013 - 958 tons.

Two of Guantanamo. For the first time in 2013, two prisoners were expelled from Guantanamo prison in connection with the review of their cases. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Reuters.

Prisoners Nabil Saeed Hajarab and Mutya Sadiq Ahmad Sayyab will be handed over to the authorities of Algeria.

After the expulsion of these two prisoners in Guantanamo, an 164 man remained. In June, 2013, the United States authorities named the names of 48 "perpetual" prisoners, who were detained in Guantanamo without charge as of January 2010. These people, according to the American authorities, are too dangerous to be at liberty, but the trouble is: they are unable to bring charges.

Hassan was sentenced to death. US Army Major Nidal Hassan, who in November 2009 of the year opened fire on his co-workers at the Fort Hood base, was sentenced to death on Wednesday. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Reuters.

At the trial, Hassan refused lawyers. He also did not call witnesses in his defense. All this gives reason to believe that he was seeking the death penalty for himself.

Hassan will be executed by lethal injection.

Billions for special services. Edward Snowden declassified documents disclosing the budgets of the American intelligence community on 2013 the reporting year. Reports about it RIA News" with reference to the Washington Post.

Details of the use of these funds have not previously become public.

This year, intelligence agencies, which employ more than 107 thousands of employees, will receive a billion dollars from the US government 52,6. Most of the funds (14,7 billion dollars) will be allocated to the CIA. The National Security Agency and the National Aerospace Intelligence Agency will receive 10,8 and 10,3 billion dollars, respectively.

Among the targeted programs of special services, the most funded is the warning of representatives of civil and military authorities about critical phenomena: a threat to economic stability, an increase in social tensions, and extreme situations in the regions. "Prevention" will cost the 2013 20,1 billion dollar treasury in XNUMX.

The NSA budget has a sum of several hundred million dollars. The agency pays such money every year to US companies to secretly penetrate their communication networks.

Surcharge for knowledge of Russian. More than seven hundred US secret service officers receive an increase in salary for knowledge of the Russian language, writes “Washington Post” with reference to the declassified documents of Edward Snowden.

As noted by RIA News", the priority foreign languages ​​for American intelligence are Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, Russian, German, Korean, Farsi, Portuguese.

According to a published estimate, 736 American intelligence officers receive a premium for their knowledge of Russian.

It is not specified whether we add from ourselves whether Mr. McFaul is receiving a special allowance.

          The head of the National Security Council of Saudi Arabia, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, in a conversation with the President of Russia, secretly threatened terrorist attacks at the Olympics in Sochi.

          In response, the Russian leader reminded the prince of Saudi Arabia’s support for Chechen separatists, which lasted until the beginning of the 2000s, and stressed that bin Sultan’s words clearly resonate with the overall objectives of the fight against terrorism.

          In response, it was necessary to recall how during the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, 1979 brilliantly carried out an operation by special services to overthrow Amin and storm his palace. And we still have such groups and they can work pointwise. Thinking of such a hint would be enough to cool the ardor of the Saudi prince. bully

And it will begin, there and Yemen can "remember" offenses. We must do something with these freaks. And it is easier to take risks with special forces - it is easier to take a winged one, without losses

              A spokesman for the Arab state said that he “guarantees the safety of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi next year,” and then noted that “Chechen militant groups that pose various threats to the Olympic Games are under our control.”

            In response, it was necessary to recall how during the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, 1979 brilliantly carried out an operation by special services to overthrow Amin and storm his palace. And we still have such groups and they can work pointwise. Thinking of such a hint would be enough to cool the ardor of the Saudi prince.
            - I went to the site late and already saw that you posted what I really wanted to post. Only the special service is called the FORCE of special operations.
            This is the tenth time I have asked - what is Putin with language? Why, during a visit to Holland, in response to the open demand of Dutch pedophiles to introduce in Russia what is considered the norm in Holland, he began to mumble and justify himself? Why didn't Bandar say exactly that? Moreover, if the terrorist attack in Sochi is too effective, then promise Bandar not a simple death, but a very special and exotic one, so that "nothing will grow afterwards" - in general, such hints are so offensive in themselves that one could drop a bomb right after Bandar's visit to the oil terminal of Saudi Arabia and not deny or confirm it, as Israel does in the mysterious explosions. At least the gardeners would have known for sure what would happen to them for the terrorist attack.

              Judging by this report, then in the DPRK an anti-religious policy is pursued. For keeping the Bible can be shot. Kim Jong Il, the report says, was an ardent opponent of Christianity.

This is the first level - alongside MANPADS, etc. The second level is the Sling of David system, the "Magic Wand". Coming into service in 2014. Works mainly against missiles operating at a distance of 40 to 300 kilometers. The third is the Hets-2 complex (Arrow-2). It is designed to engage tactical and operational-tactical missiles at ranges up to 100-150 km and altitudes up to 50-60 km. The fourth level is Hetz-3 and Patriots.

        Sash, the economic efficiency of the system lies in the fact that earlier, when a rocket hit a residential quarter, the state paid at least one million shekels (about $ 250) to the city and its residents. This is in addition to the fact that there is an ethical and psychological factor in protecting residents.

        The cost of a new generation of Tamir missile defense has dropped to several thousand dollars - from one hundred thousand in the first generation, and 30-40 thousand in the second. The battery now costs about $ 50 million. In your opinion these are exorbitant prices to protect the state?

      Saudi Arabia is the only country in the Middle East where it is still forbidden to build churches and openly preach Christianity.

      A Bible holder in Saudi Arabia could face not only deportation or arrest, but also the death penalty. In September 1993, 23-year-old Sadeq Mallallah was charged with apostasy and beheaded for keeping the Bible. The US Department of State has repeatedly noted in its Human Rights Report that many Christian preachers are detained and expelled from Saudi Arabia every year for their religious beliefs and their promotion. At the same time, Saudi Arabia is financing the publication and distribution of the Qur'an and other Muslim religious literature in print runs of hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide. In a number of publications, Christians and Jews are openly referred to as pigs, monkeys, etc.

With Saudi Arabia, it is more or less clear - the opposition of religious views, but with North Korea it is not clear whether only the Bible is forbidden, or whether religious literature of all faiths is prohibited. If everything is forbidden, the conclusion is obvious - the government replaces religious movements with faith in the infallibility of the Leader and faith in him and the party, but if only the Bible is forbidden, then the question remains the same - WHY?

    The Israeli government does not trust the Obama administration and believes that previously announced air strikes will be ineffective against the army, whose forces are dispersed throughout the country.

    The first PCs on Russian processors came off the assembly line

    As planned, the MCST organized the production of the first computers based on Elbrus processors of its own design. The company notes a high interest in them from the defense sector.
    The plans for the production of such PCs CNews became known back in July 2012. As it was told at the MCST and Kraftway then, it was planned to take the finished Kraftway Studio all-in-one with a touch screen and equip it with a small-sized Monocub motherboard developed by the MCST with the integrated Elbrus processor -2C + ". The latter contains 2 cores based on the Elbrus architecture with a frequency of 500 MHz, 4 DSP cores developed by the Elvis Scientific Processing Center and has a peak performance of 28 GFlops
    “With the level of interest that we are seeing for new computers, a batch of this volume should disperse very quickly, and subsequently it will be possible to think about a more serial production,” says the general director of the MCST. “Organizations in the defense sector are showing interest in PCs on domestic processors.” What kind of organizations expressed a desire to purchase such computers, he chose not to voice.
    Elbrus-2C + is the first hybrid high-performance microprocessor manufactured by MTsST. It contains 2 Elbrus architecture cores and 4 Elvis digital signal processor (DSP) cores. The main scope of the Elbrus-2C + processor is digital intelligent signal processing systems, such as radars, image analyzers, etc.

    Compared with the Elbrus-S processor, the following changes have been introduced into the Elbrus-2C + processor:

    • The number of cores of Elbrus architecture has been increased to 2.
    • L2 cache has been reduced to 1 MB per core.
    • A cluster of 4 DSP cores operating at the same frequency has been added.
    • Supported memory type changed to DDR2-800, throughput improved by 60%
    • Added another input / output channel. You can connect an additional KPI south bridge or a specialized device, such as a DAC / ADC controller, to it.
    • For the hybrid processor, a C compiler version has been implemented, which allows compiling code for DSP cores and providing effective interaction between the main program running on the CPU cores and the procedures for DSP.
    such great news.

    What has been lost is gradually being restored.

      Simonyan: Reddit has blocked the account of the RT channel
      The administration of the Reddit website has blocked the account of the Russia Today TV channel, the editor-in-chief of the TV channel Margarita Simonyan said on her Twitter. Simonyan commented on this situation for the "Voice of Russia"
      Updated at 14:59 Moscow time
      “I think that why we were banned from the Reddit portal was best commented on by the users of the Reddit portal, who launched a real war to get our resource back, and rightly accused the portal of simply outright censorship. We have already contacted the portal. We ask them for some clarification, explanation. They did not give any reasons, no examples, for what exactly we were banned. We hope that they will do it. We have not received a response from them yet, "Simonyan said. Russia ".
      "I was still waiting for our channel to be blocked in the States. We started. Bravo to freedom of speech," Simonyan wrote earlier in her Twitter.

    According to a France-Presse source at the US Department of Defense, the US Navy is sending the Stout destroyer to the Mediterranean. He will become the fifth American ship off the coast of Syria, notes newsru.co.il.

    The Pentagon reported redeployment a few hours after the Russian media reported that two ships of the Russian Navy had been sent to the Mediterranean.

    The following is curious: RIA Novosti writes that updating the Navy in the Mediterranean is not related to the situation in Syria and is a planned rotation, but Interfax, citing a source in the General Staff, claims back

    By prior arrangement, the Tu-160, without leaving the territory of the Russian Federation, drops a set of missiles, without specifying "why".
    At the time of the launch of the marching engine, the rocket is sold to the Syrian government, and then the rocket reaches the desired results for the Syrians.
    Casus belli is not observed, because Syria will already be in open conflict with the recipients of missiles. But the Russian Federation is not involved, because the rocket is no longer ours.

    WHY ARE THESE DIFFICULTIES? It can be done much easier. Syria acquires missiles from the Russian Federation. Pays. And indicates the delivery address. We "deliver" to the specified address. Everyone is happy. (nearly)

    The head of the Kyrgyz Federation of National Sports Tabyldy Asygaziev, who was present at the game, said that "nothing bad happened." “This is an unpleasant, but completely harmless incident. The judge didn’t even need medical help, he’s all right. ”

Babies are born without eyes, arms, legs. According to scientists, people received doses of white phosphorus and depleted uranium.

      Mostly yes. But again, conclusions were drawn from criticism.
      "Although phosphorus is harmless in small amounts, and its use is permitted by international law, current shells will soon be withdrawn from service," the Israeli Army press service said in a statement.
      “In about a year, the Israel Defense Forces artillery troops will complete the development of new camouflage shells entirely on a gas basis. They will replace the currently used ammunition containing a minimum amount of phosphorus. ”In smoke-masking shells, phosphorus is just in the minimum amount.

    The authorities of Poland, as the authorities of Ukraine, have long been talking about shale gas production, I have heard this for at least two years. Bulgaria, France, in Germany this issue is being considered.
    In addition to Poland and Ukraine, Estonia is most of all advocating for the production of shale gas. Thus, the former countries of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact want to completely destroy their ecology. And in all seriousness, they will only have to use imported water.

    Gentlemen! No one can reproach me for being incorrect, however, fear God: a serious review of events on the eve of a possible war is being discussed, in which, unfortunately, not humor, but sarcasm, for which the author receives respect and support. And at this time, some kind of mishandled "Cossack" (or "Cossack"? - what's the difference!) Appears on the site, teaches us an anatomy lesson, takes us the devil where, we are all "led" on this, and half the discussion turns in the booth.

    Hello!
    I just had a desire to express my opinion.
    Videotapes presented to the public as the fact of the use of chemical warfare agents in Syria are in doubt.
    Why are there so many children in the war zone (where the war has been going on for 2 years)?
    Where are the characteristic signs of application in the form of redness, chemical burns to the body, swelling, traces of (terrible) vomiting, etc ...
    (The most not terrible photo of the consequences of the use of chemical warfare agents.
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/68/Mustard_gas_burns.jpg )
    Why are operators removing all this (still alive) without gas masks and not afraid of chemical contamination (even if they are killed by chemical warfare agents, contact with clothing and bodies is dangerous)?
    A variant of the events indicated by various and well-known data:
    A group of hired militants, instructors (?), Special forces of various countries (?) (They promise to present the bodies soon), the Syrian troops surrounded and began to methodically destroy.
    In order to escape from the environment, a pre-prepared and staged video shoot (a familiar development of events?) Was launched.
    A group of actors and children (under the influence of sleeping pills) was presented to the public as a victim of the victims of a chemical attack by the Syrian government forces.
    Thus, pursuing at least two tasks, break out of the encirclement (the troops will be forced to interrupt hostilities and wait for experts) and show the whole world that the legitimately elected Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad crossed the red line, which he drew (it is not clear on what basis and without UN sanctions) US President Barack Hussein Obama (but don’t draw anything horrible!)
    Of course, probably (if they want to), UN specialists will determine whether the very fact of the use of chemical warfare agents, including the exhumation of "corpses" (despite the words that as a result of the shelling, all traces of the use of chemical warfare agents substances were destroyed - were they in general?), and only then they will look for a scapegoat on duty.
    I respect the representatives of the American people who wrote
    Dear world, Americans do not want war with Syria
    http://mixednews.ru/archives/40832
    http://www.activistpost.com/2013/08/dear-world-americans-dont-want-war-in.html
    and adhere to such views.
    I hope that US politicians will also understand and bring down all their just anger on those who decided to set them up - on the resistance fighters of the legally elected government (terrorists) who, at the expense of the USA, decided to achieve their goals.
    The very fact that the US administration ("the tail wags the dog"?;)) Recognizes its mistakes, everyone will perceive as a courageous and respectable act.

    Rebels recognize responsibility for chemical attack

    Syrian rebels from the Damascus suburb of Guta admitted to AR journalist Dale Gawlak that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident last week in which the Western powers blamed Bashar al-Assad’s forces. The rebels reported that it occurred as a result of improper handling of chemical weapons provided by Saudi Arabia.
    The rebels told Havljak that they were incorrectly taught to handle chemical weapons and did not even tell what it was. It turns out that the weapons seemed to be originally intended for the transfer of Jabhat al-Nusra, an al-Qaeda offshoot.
    “We were curious what kind of weapon. And, unfortunately, some fighters did something wrong with him because of what the explosion occurred, ”said one of the militants named“ J ”to Havljak. His words are repeated by a woman fighter by the name of “K”, who said to Havljak: “They did not tell us what kind of weapon it was and how to use it. We did not know that it was a chemical weapon. We could not even imagine that there was a chemical weapon. ”
