‘Illegitimate coalition’ must pay for destroying Syria – Damascus to UN

‘Illegitimate coalition’ must pay for destroying Syria – Damascus to UN:

Syria wants the US and its allies to pay for the destruction of Syrian infrastructure and to bear legal responsibility for “illegitimately” bombing civilian targets, Damascus has told the UN, demanding that the American-led coalition strikes stop.
The Syrian “Government insists that these attacks must come to an end, and that the members of this illegitimate coalition must bear the political and legal responsibility for the destruction of infrastructure in the Syrian Arab Republic, including responsibility for compensation,” the Permanent Mission of the Syrian Arab Republic to the United Nations said in letters addressed to the UN Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council.

Moscow, Baghdad Sign Huge Arms Deal

“The US still has large influence in Iraq but it does not own it. The impressive performance of Russian weapons in Syria makes them in high demand among the countries facing the terrorist threat. The tank deal between Russia and Iraq reflects the trend. It also serves as an example of Russia’s growing clout in the Middle East and North Africa.

Moscow, Baghdad Sign Huge Arms Deal:

It was reported on July 20 that Russia and Iraq have struck a deal on supplying a large batch of T-90 tanks. Vladimir Kozhin, the Russian president’s aide for military technical cooperation, confirmed the agreement but declined to provide details, saying only «the number of tanks is substantial». Russian military analyst Ruslan Pukhov told Russian newspaper Izvestia that the deal might cover deliveries of several hundred T-90 tanks, and that the contract may exceed $1 billion.

The T-90 is among the best-selling tanks in the world. Hundreds of vehicles have been sold to India, Algeria, Azerbaijan and other countries. A small number of tanks has been delivered to Syria to reinforce the military’s capabilities of combatting Islamic State (IS). Kuwait, Vietnam and Egypt are considering the option of purchasing T-90s.

US contributed to ISIS creation, now tries to claim victory over it – Iraqi VP talks tough

US contributed to ISIS creation, now tries to claim victory over it – Iraqi VP talks tough:

The recapture of Mosul is an achievement of the Iraqi people while the US is trying to highjack it and claims it was them who “led that war,” Iraq’s Vice President Nouri al-Maliki has told the RIA Novosti news agency.

Yes, they supported us with aviation, but the main credit goes to the Iraqi soldiers, people’s militia, Iraqi air force,” al-Maliki stated in his interview with the Russian news agency.

He added that he “regrets and denies [Americans] claiming the victory [in Mosul] is their achievement.”

In reality, this is the victory of the Iraqi army,” al-Maliki said, revealing that the victory came a high cost, with some 20,000 Iraqi soldiers and police officers having been either killed or wounded.

Chechnya’s Leader Claims “Russian Doomsday Device” Is Activated

Chechnya’s Leader Claims “Russian Doomsday Device” Is Activated:

Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, gave a rare interview to a media outlet in the United States that aired Tuesday, and what he said is taking many aback…

While speaking to HBO’s Real Sports, Kadyrov denied that gay people are humans, that they exist in his region, and that his government regularly detains or tortures them, despite ample reports to the contrary. But that isn’t the news that’s riling up the masses, even though it is concerning that Kadyrov is more than likely committing human rights violations. He also made a troubling comment about his country’s nuclear arsenal and a Russian doomsday device.

Kadyrov said,

“America is not really a strong enough state for us to regard it as an enemy of Russia. We have a strong government and are a nuclear state.

Even if our government was completely destroyed, our nuclear missiles would be automatically deployed. We will put the whole world on its knees and screw it from behind.”

That comment certainly puts the left’s insistence on a war with Russia in perspective.  And Kadyrov is probably being more accurate than not in that statement.

Greek President Blasts Erdogan After Turkish Harassment: “Provocations Are Sign Of Weakness, Come & Get It!”

Greek President Blasts Erdogan After Turkish Harassment: “Provocations Are Sign Of Weakness, Come & Get It!”: 

KeepTalkingGreece.com reports that Greek president Prokopis Pavlopoulos sent a sharp worded message to his Turkish counter Recep Tayyip Erdogan, following a series of provocations accompanying his tour to the islands of the eastern Aegean Sea.

“The brave do not provoke,” President Pavlopoulos told Greek soldiers safeguarding the remote island of Ai Stratis. “Provocations, especially provocations without a reason, are characteristic signs of  weakness and insecurity.”

“What history and our ancestors taught us is “Molon Labe”, Pavlopoulos added citing the famous quote of Spartan King Leonidas I.

Molon labe (Greek: ????? ???? mol?n lavé), meaning “come and take [them]”, is a classical expression of defiance. According to Plutarch, Xerxes, king of Persia, demanded that the Spartans surrender their weapons and King Leonidas I responded with this phrase.

This occurred after, as KeepTalkingGreece reports, two times in two consecutive days, Turks harassed the helicopter carrying Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on a tour visiting several remote islands and islets in the eastern Aegean Sea.

Seismic Shift In Syria: Trump Ends Covert Obama-era CIA Program Which Sent Arms To Jihadists

FYI.

Seismic Shift In Syria: Trump Ends Covert Obama-era CIA Program Which Sent Arms To Jihadists:

In what may be one of the most significant foreign policy decisions of his first year in office, Trump is shutting down the CIA’s covert program to arm rebels fighting the Syrian government. This would constitute a monumental shift in terms of US priorities in Syria which throughout most of the 6-year long war have focused on removing Bashar al-Assad.

“I Won’t Let Myself Be F***ed”: French Armed Forces Chief Resigns After Clashing With Macron

de Villiers attend the Bastille Day military parade on July 14, 2017

“I Won’t Let Myself Be F***ed”: French Armed Forces Chief Resigns After Clashing With Macron:

France’s armed forces chief resigned on Wednesday, culminating a dramatic dispute with president Emmanuel Macron over defense budget cuts, in what Reuters called “an early test of the newly elected president’s mettle and the tough presidential style he is cultivating.” Last week, General Pierre de Villiers publicly lashed out about Macron’s proposed €850 million cuts to the military’s budget, when in an outburst before a parliament committee he said he “won’t let myself be fucked like that,” adding that “I may be stupid, but I know when I am being had.”

In a statement released on Wednesday, the 60-year-old De Villers said that “in the current circumstances I see myself as no longer able to guarantee the robust defense force I believe is necessary to guarantee the protection of France and the French people, today and tomorrow, and to sustain the aims of our country,” noting he had tried to keep the armed forces fit for an ever more difficult task within the financial constraints imposed on it, but was no longer able to sustain that. He added that Macron had accepted his resignation.

“Autonomy will play a big role in future concepts of operation… Army drones and robots of all types should be able to function to provide not raw data but information, and, in a sense, decisions about what needs to happen on the battlefield…”

Elon Musk Nightmare Looms: Army Seeks “Internet-Of-Battlefield Things” With “Self-Aware” Bot Swarms:


After warning that “AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization,” the appearance of fully-automated ‘robot-killers’ brought Elon Musk’s apocalyptic vision even close.As he noted, “until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal,” and while that is unlikely in the streets of America (for now), Defense One’s Patrick Turner writes that after nearly two decades of war against technologically unsophisticated foes, the Army Research Lab is reorienting to counter China and Russia – with distributed bot-swarms and an internet-of-battlefield things…

U.S. Army To Female Soldiers: Be Prepared To Shower With ‘Women With Male Genitalia’

U.S. Army To Female Soldiers: Be Prepared To Shower With ‘Women With Male Genitalia’:

Um, “women with male genitalia” are men.

The social experimentation on our military is raging on full speed ahead.

Late in former President Barack Obama’s second term in office, then-Secretary of Defense Ash Carter issued a “transgender inclusive” military policy set to be put into effect on July 1, 2017, (though it’s been delayed by the Trump Administration for six months). In accordance with the initiative, which bypassed Congress, the Army is providing new training material for biologically female soldiers, who will now encounter “women with genitalia,” otherwise known as men, in women’s bathrooms, barracks, and shower facilities.
