  • Russia Inadvertently Posts Its Casualties In Ukraine: 2,000 Deaths, 3,200 Disabled

    Russian president Vladimir Putin has decreed that all Russian casualties “in peacetime” be a state secret. In addition to criminal charges arising from divulging state secrets, families risk losing pensions and lump-sum payments if they reveal that their sons were killed in Ukraine. Mothers of soldiers’ associations have been branded “foreign agents” for collecting data on Russian casualties. Dissident Boris Nemtsov was murdered shortly before completing his study of Russian casualties in Ukraine. Russian civil rights organizations, working against the fog of official resistance, could confirm only several hundred battlefield deaths.

  • Is Putin plotting war in Europe? Experts warn Russia is 'actively preparing' for conflict with NATO

    Daily Mail ^ | August 12, 2015 | Larisa Brown, Simon Tomlinson
    The increasing scale and frequency of military exercises undertaken by Russia means Vladimir Putin is 'actively preparing' for war in Europe, a think tank has warned. Research that analysed two recent large-scale exercises by Russia and NATO found that each side was training with 'most likely war plans in mind'. But the report warned that NATO was 'unable to match' the scale of those conducted by Moscow. Ian Kearns, director of the London-based European Leadership Network, which conducted the study, said the war games 'are contributing to a climate of mistrust' that have 'on occasion become the focal point for...

    They're the ultra-Nationalist swastika-loving battalion which is openly against the ceasefire agreed with pro-Russian separatists. Now extremists from the Azov unit, a far-right neo-Nazi militia defending the port city of Mariupol in southeastern Ukraine, are teaching children as young as six how to fire guns in an attempt to entice them into the country's bloody conflict. Disturbing pictures have emerged from a military summer camp held on the outskirts of Kiev which show members of the voluntary group teaching so-called 'Azovets' how to behave as young fighters. The children - which include girls and boys, some as young as six...
  • Iran buys 100 Russian refueling aircraft for its air force to reach any point in the Mid East

    Debka ^ | July 22, 2015
    In defiance of the international arms embargo, Iran last week placed an order with Moscow for a huge fleet of 100 Russian IL78 MKI tanker aircraft (NATO: Midas) for refueling its air force in mid-flight, thereby extending its range to 7,300 km. This is reported exclusively by DEBKAfile from its military and intelligence sources. The transaction runs contrary to the terms of the nuclear accord the six world powers and Iran signed in Vienna earlier this month. These tanker planes can simultaneously refuel six to eight warplanes. Their acquisition brings Israel, 1.200km away – as well the rest of the...

    I have enormous respect for Victor Davis Hanson and read with great interest his account this week that people are fed up with liberal elites. Amid all this leftish high-fiving about court decisions and executive orders, we forget political and electoral reality. Barack Obama has done more to destroy liberal political power in the Congress and in the statehouses than any Democratic politician since the 1920s. His executive orders and neglect of enforcing existing law have green-lighted the executive power of the next Republican president in a way that Richard Nixon could hardly imagine. He has discredited the idea of...

    It was in August 2014 that the real danger began, and that we heard the first warnings of war. That month, unmarked Russian troops covertly invaded eastern Ukraine, where the separatist conflict had grown out of its control. The Russian air force began harassing the neighboring Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, which are members of NATO. The US pledged that it would uphold its commitment to defend those countries as if they were American soil, and later staged military exercises a few hundred yards from Russia's border.Both sides came to believe that the other had more drastic intentions....

The decision to review recognition of the independence of EU-member Baltic nations follows the Russian Prosecutor General's Office ruling last year that Crimea was illegally handed to Ukraine in 1954; and is certain to alarm the small Baltic NATO-member nations of Lithuania, Latvia and...

Efraim Halevy, who recently stepped down as the head of the Israel National Security Council and national security adviser to the Israeli prime minister, said we were in for the long haul and must brace ourselves for more that will follow.

    The first prophecy about the Second Coming of Jesus was given in the Garden of Eden when God placed a curse on Eve. God said, “In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children” (Gen. 3:16 KJV). The modern language reads, “You will suffer birth-pangs.” The RSV reads, “In pain you shall bring forth children.” Children are a blessing that God bestowed upon Adam and Eve when He created them. But they sinned. And because they sinned the birth of children is a time of sorrows and birth pains. When the disciples asked Jesus about the signs of His coming, He mentioned...

    We are at war! World War III has started and apparently our government is unwilling to acknowledge it. Prior to World War II, efforts were made throughout Britain and the United States to avoid war at all costs with disastrous consequences. We will face the same disaster if we do not face reality immediately. In the Britain of the 1930's, Chamberlain attempted to appease Hitler until it was too late for Poland and the world. His appeasement increased the death toll from that war substantially. In the year 2015, the parallels to 1939 are striking. We are in denial. Our...

Judge Tom Head told a local radio station in September that the president will: “Try to give the sovereignty of the United States away. He’s going to call in the UN troops, personnel carriers, tanks and whatever.” The proclamation drew widespread scorn and ridicule both at home and abroad. Even the office of the Secretary General weighed in on Head’s prediction. “It’s absolutely ridiculous,” said a spokesperson for UN...

    More than two decades after the Berlin Wall fell, it appears that the United States and Russia are engaging in the same sort of proxy wars that were so common during the Cold War. Everywhere that Western and Russian spheres of influence meet there is the potential for conflict, and the two aging superpowers have shown their willingness fight through their neighbors. However, this game of chess has taken on a whole new dimension that is radically different than what we saw during the Cold War. The whole point of a proxy war is to resist your enemy without actually...

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - NATO will triple its usual number of fighter jets patrolling over the Baltics next month to beef up its eastern European defenses due to tension with Russia over Ukraine, a NATO military official said on Tuesday. Four NATO fighters are usually based in the Baltics but the United States, which currently has responsibility for patrolling the skies there, increased that to 10 F-15s to reassure those states following Russia's occupation of Ukraine's Crimea region. The number of fighters assigned to the Baltic "air policing" mission is now set to increase further to 12, three times the normal...
  • Should America Fight World War Three in Order to Defend Estonia?

    Estonia is a little nation of 1.3 million people, which was made a member of NATO in 2004. Estonia was once a province of the Soviet Union. It has a Russian minority that is 25 percent of the population, and Russia has vowed to protect ethnic Russians if they are subjected to mass violence by the Estonian majority. Did NATO make a wise decision to bring in itty-bitty baltic nations that were once part of the Soviet Union? I can understand the importance of preventing the Soviet Union from being brought back into existence. But the lives of American troops...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin is poised to invade Ukraine with military forces after winning unanimous approval for taking such a step from the notoriously rubber-stamp upper house of parliament. Members of the Russian Federation Council said that the troops are needed to protect the safety of millions of ethnic Russians in Ukraine and that the soldiers should stay until "the constitutional order is restored in Ukraine," which hints at a possible Russian attempt to return to power Viktor Yanukovych, ousted as Ukraine's president on Feb. 22, or install another Kremlin-friendly leader.

    Iran could build a nuclear bomb within as little as a month, a new report issued by the U.S. Institute for Science and International Security says. According to the assessment, Iran’s weapons-grade uranium production capabilities are developed to a degree that its “breakout time”—the time needed to convert enough uranium to weapon-grade so as to build a bomb—stands at between one and 1.6 months, and is shortening further. …

Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that the United States had failed to...
