The Siren's Song, irresistibly luring the sailors to their fate, to be dashed to death on the rocks. The intravenous heroin user prostitute dying for a fix promising the Earth and the Moon. The USA's foreign policy, with a carrot in one hand and a stick in the other. Cuba's recently discovered oil reserves, putting the country on a par with the USA
Brutal and bloody provocations are a tool of choice of USA's politics. US intelligence greyhounds have taken a hand in white powder from Iraq, in September 11 attacks and torture. Hitler's reason for war - a casus belli - was the only one Gleiwitz. The American elite has dozens of such Gleiwitzes. The worst of them was the 9/11 attacks
Europe's approach to the gas relations with Russia has been getting more stringent; Russia's Gazprom has been changing its attitude to investment in Europe too. The point of no return has not been passed yet, but the Y-track is clearly visible already. The decision to stop South Stream marks the beginning of the end of Gazprom's work in Europe
I will not write or speak his name because that is what he wanted. He is not worthy to be remembered by name or deed; yet another known to authorities monster, an Adrian Bayley waiting to happen. These deeply premeditated religiously/sexually motivated, related crimes shouldn't happen in a sane political/justice system which ours clearly isn't.
No matter what we may be doing, we always come across problems, opposition and struggle against us. Endlessly. If they let our bear sit quietly, maybe they will leave it alone? No, they won't. They will always be trying to chain the Russian bear. This is the price that we pay to protect our natural wish to survive as a nation, as a civilization
Russia should cut interest rates that the president indicated in his three addresses and dramatically boost the national economy. One should proceed to investments, to zero inflation and prosperity of the country. It is up to us to choose what to do - get poorer as directed by the IMF or prosper as directed by Putin
The logic that torture is a "stain" on US history is the heart of the problem, since it blocks an honest reading of whatever "values" Washington actually stands for. Of course, aging accused war criminals like former Vice President, Dick Cheney were quick to dismiss the report and its detailed brutal interrogation tactics as "full of crap"
Today Treasury bond investors pay a fee in order to guarantee that they will receive the nominal face value of their investment in government bonds. Think about this for a minute. Allegedly the US is experiencing economic recovery. Normally with rising economic activity interest rates rise as consumers and investors bid for credit
What is happening in Russia today is simply a war against the control of the world by the Central Banks/IMF/World Bank. There will only be one winner. We need all pray that it is Russia who saves the world form modern serfdom
Al-Qaeda is not Islam, Islam is not Islamic State, but Al-Qaeda took one step closer to Islamic State on December 16, 2014 when operatives in Pakistan murdered over 130 children in the most blatant act of cowardice the world has witnessed since Beslan, when Chechen terrorists attacked a Russian school.
Many bloggers post pictures of crowds of customers at stores that sell electronic appliances, furniture and jewelry. Food supermarkets are no exception. To save their ruble savings from devaluation, many Russians rushed to buy consumer electronics, furniture, jewelry and other goods. The demand on expensive home appliances is particularly high
In April Senator Richard Black wrote a letter to Syrian President Assad to thank the Syrian Arab Army for its extraordinary gallantry and heroism demonstrated in conducting military operations in Qalamoun. These military operations have led to the rescue of the Christian community who was imprisoned for a lot of time by the Islamic extremists.
During the past three weeks we have been living in the United States a wakeup call to reality that heralds Americans might not be quite the people we claim to be; not in the way we treat people within and beyond our borders. Torture and racial discrimination, different issues with similar amoral results, are intermittently resurfacing
