    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday issued a sharp warning to the Islamic State group, saying after the United States is done grieving the death of two American journalists, their killers will have to answer for their actions. "They should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice," he forcefully told an audience at an event on the New Hampshire-Maine border, according to CNN. "Because hell is where they will reside. Hell is where they will reside." Biden opened his remarks in memory of Steven Sotloff, the journalist who was beheaded...

    The Middle Eastern country officially changed its name in December to Türkiye (when the English spelling is used). The decision was made to better reflect the culture and traditions of the country. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a circular in early December making the change to preserve the values that come from the deep-rooted history of the Turkish nation. “The phrase Türkiye represents and expresses the culture, civilization and values of the Turkish nation in the best way,” the circular says. “In this context, the phrase ‘Made in Türkiye’ is now being used instead of ‘Made in Turkey’ on our...

    Unlike their Western counterparts, many Muslims are fond of their heroes of the past. Unlike their Western counterparts, many Muslims are fond of their heroes of the past — particularly the jihadist types who for centuries thrived on terrorizing the West. This was recently underscored by Barbaros: Sword of the Mediterranean, a television series, written and produced in Turkey, that aired late last year and is dedicated to highlighting the clash between Islam and Christendom — in a way, of course, that demonizes the latter and extols the former. The highly fictionalized series revolves around four Muslim brothers and their...

    Russia upped the ante Monday in its dangerous standoff with Ukraine, openly warning of military action if President Biden and America’s NATO allies ignore a list of demands Moscow announced late last week — a far-reaching list that some key U.S. lawmakers have dubbed a “pretext to war.” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said his country is fully prepared to respond through “military-technical means” if Western powers fail to address those demands. He said NATO must not expand to include Ukraine or Georgia and the U.S. must not base additional military assets in former Soviet republics in Central Asia....

    If US-led bloc refuses Moscow's proposal, 'regional conflicts would increase' By Yang Sheng Published: Dec 19, 2021 10:29 PM Updated: Dec 19, 2021 10:37 PM The intense situation around Ukraine between Russia and NATO is unlikely to ease, as it is almost impossible that NATO will accept the security guarantee proposed by Moscow due to entrenched hostility to Russia, Chinese analysts said, adding that the US-led bloc will not give up expansion to the east, and Russia will definitely take action to retaliate. They noted that although China hopes the two sides can resolve the situation peacefully, the two sides...

    Justice may be delayed, but it will not be denied,” is the strap-line of a video from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs that now has millions of views from across the world. The startling speech in the clip attached (below) is part of a new Chinese Communist Party effort to undermine the United States on the world stage, taking advantage of an increasingly weak Biden regime. No such wild sabre-rattling came from China during the Trump administration. They didn’t dare. But with Biden and Harris at the helm for less than a year, the world is now witnessing a rush...

The incident came ahead of an end-of-year deadline set by Iranian-backed militias for the U.S. to withdraw its forces from Iraq, according to the Post.

Because of the crisis in Lebanon, we are hearing more and more open talk about the threat of Iran and its proxies - most notably (but not only) being Hezbollah. Though for the most, Israel's name is never mentioned, it is obvious that Israel with its strong arm - the IDF - and the Abraham Accords - are the major cog in the Middle East, allowing to take care of a problem...

    A recent sighting of Putin’s notorious Buk missiles on their way to the frontline does not bode well for talks A flatbed rail wagon speeding through south-west Russia last week carried an ill omen for negotiations to avert a larger war with Ukraine. On board was a Buk-M1, the kind of medium-range surface-to-air missile system that became notorious in 2014 after a missile fired from territory controlled by Russian proxies in eastern Ukraine shot down a Malaysian airliner, killing all 298 people aboard. If Russia goes to war in Ukraine, it still needs to take a number of steps: establishing...

    Blinken met with his counterparts in the G7 countries over the weekend in Liverpool, England, about Moscow’s enormous military buildup on Ukraine’s eastern border that many see as a prelude to an imminent invasion. “They are equally resolute in their determination to stand against Russian aggression, to ideally deter it, prevent it. And we’ve made clear as well that there would be massive consequences if Russia commits renewed acts of aggression against Ukraine​,” Blinken said Sunday during an appearance on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”​ America’s top diplomat said the Biden administration seeks to have a “stable, predictable relationship” with...

The United States and its other G7 allies are searching for a coherent response to Xi's growing assertiveness after China’s spectacular economic and military rise over the past 40 years.

Khomeini said on several occasions that he is "willing" that Iran should burn if Islam will conquer the world.

    DUGWAY PROVING GROUND, Utah — The killer drone whooshed out of its launch tube, spreading its carbon wings and shooting into the sky. Flying too fast for the naked eye to track, the battery-powered robot circled the Utah desert, hunting for the target it had been programmed to strike. Moments later, it sailed through the driver’s side window of an empty pickup truck and exploded in a fireball. “Good hit,” exclaimed an operator from AeroVironment, the company that produces the drone and sells it to the U.S. military. NBC News traveled to a military testing center for exclusive access to...

    National Review Corner ^ | December 5, 2021 | Victoria Coates
    All anyone can say with any certainty is that something very strange happened near the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nuclear facility at Natanz this past Saturday evening. Disturbances at Natanz have become somewhat commonplace recently, with a major fire in July 2020, followed by an explosion in April 2021 that cut off power to the facility. Both of these episodes appeared to be deliberate sabotage designed to set back Iran’s nuclear program, either by Israel or another of Iran’s neighbors who has a much clearer view of what a nuclear Iran would mean for their region. Whatever went down Saturday...

    The Israeli Mossad is on its way to wreaking havoc inside Iran, says British journalist Jake Wallis Simmons. Iran is about to be hit by a new deadly wave of Israeli Mossad operations, senior Jerusalem sources told me. This will happen as a result of a change in Israeli policy, from now on, "When Tehran's proxy militias cause problems in the region, the Jewish state will take revenge on Iranian soil." It will no longer attack the octopus' tentacles, "said one senior source. It has been decided in Israel to go for the octopus head."
