Video: Russia’ TOS-1A Thermobaric Rocket Launcher Hits Ukrainian Fortifications In Donbass
Post Date: 2022-10-30 10:04:31 by Horse
On October 29, Russian news sources shared footage documenting the work of the TOS-1A thermobaric rocket system against the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). The footage shows a TOS-1A system targeting a network of fortifications of the AFU on the Donbass front. The system fired three thermobaric at the fortifications, which were built deep in wooded areas. The results of the strikes are yet to be known. The TOS-1A, which built around the T-72 battle tank chassis, can be armed with up to 24 unguided 220 mm thermobaric rockets with a range between six and ten kilometers. The system’s rockets are armed with a powerful fuel air explosives warhead. The Russian military has been using the ...

Gitmo's Oldest Detainee Freed After 20 Years With No Charges
Post Date: 2022-10-29 23:13:30 by Horse
The United States on Saturday released the oldest prisoner who was held for two decades at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - after his arrest in Thailand in 2003 soon after the so-called "Global War on Terror" was launched. 75-year old Saifullah Paracha was transferred to his home country of Pakistan. Amazingly, he spent nearly 20 years in US detention at the high-secure military prison without trial, nor was he ever formally charged. He was suspected of being an al-Qaida financier. "The Foreign Ministry completed an extensive inter-agency process to facilitate the repatriation of Mr Paracha," Pakistan's government said in a statement soon after his release. "We are ...

NATO Set To Attack Tiraspol?
Post Date: 2022-10-29 21:11:15 by Horse
David Sant for the Saker blog Gonzalo Lira recently posted two soliloquies which were both accusatory and predictive about NATO’s apparent motivations and likely near-term kinetic military objectives. He concluded that after detonating a “dirty bomb” on Ukrainian territory, the USA and NATO would use the opportunity as an excuse to move the 101st Airborne Division from Romania into Odessa. 13:50 and 15:00 both may be sped up 1.5x-1.73x While I think his big picture thinking is generally correct, I ...

Blood donations in Russia
Post Date: 2022-10-29 20:40:48 by Horse
Poster Comment:At the conclusion of today's broadcast, Dima said that Russia kicked off a blood drive in major Russian cities. Obviously, they are expecting casualties in mid to late November when they begin their offensive from Kherson to Nikolayev and then Odessa. I also expect an offensive along the Donbass to push the Ukrainians out off artillery range of civilians in Donetsk. In the north I expect the Russians to degrade the forces near Kharkov but to concentrate on Sumy district next door which will cut eastern Ukraine off from rail and electricity. Sumy is 30 miles from the Belarus border.

US Has No Plans to Withdraw From Syria Or End Sanctions
Post Date: 2022-10-29 19:45:55 by Horse
Apart from a few outlying territories, the Syrian War is for all intents and purposes over. The rebels are defeated and Assad endures. The war being over doesn’t appear to impact the US plans however. Roughly 1,000 US troops are deployed in Syria, and officials say they have “no plans” to end that presence, or to lift sanctions aimed at regime change in Syria. During the Trump Administration, US forces shifted focus to an oilfield with a new mission to “take the oil.” Illegality of that aside, it appears that plan remains in place. John Kirby says the US goal in Syria is “solely to combat ISIS,” an interesting position since the US almost never fights ...

Russia Suspends Participation In Ukraine Grain Deal After "Massive" Drone Attack On Black Sea Fleet
Post Date: 2022-10-29 19:14:54 by Horse
Russia suspended its participation in the Ukraine grain export deal after a swarm of drones targeted at least one Russian warship from the Black Sea navy. Following the attack, Moscow immediately suspended its compliance with the deal, known as the Black Sea Grain Initiative, which was formed and launched in July and ended a five-month Russian blockade of Ukraine's ports. The United Nations and Turkey brokered the deal, allowing safe passage for cargo ships in and out of Ukraine's ports to haul farm goods worldwide. The deal was set to expire on Nov. 19. According to Reuters, here's what the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement about the "massive" drone ...

Russia Announces End Of Mobilization After Enlisting 300K New Troops

Some 82,000 already in the conflict zone with 218,000 still undergoing training... Poster Comment:They will be adding 100,000 soldiers a month to the frontlines. The center at Donbass is going nowhere for the Ukrainians. They are losing men, armor and artillery daily. They did for them a massive offensive but they are almost out of men and armor. A brigade of Polish soldiers reached the frontlines and retreated after experiencing their fair share 60,000 Russian artillery rounds fired every day. The Ukes sent some officers from the Nazi Right Sector brigade and threatened them. The Poles killed the Nazis. Kherson in the south is one staging area to take Nikolayev and then Odessa. In the ...

Greenwald: Meet The Consortium Imposing The Growing Censorship Regime
Post Date: 2022-10-28 17:45:50 by Horse
Authored by Glenn Greenwald via Substack, The rapid escalation of online censorship, and increasingly offline censorship, cannot be overstated. The silencing tactic that has most commonly provoked attention and debate is the banning of particular posts or individuals by specific social media platforms. But the censorship regime that has been developed, and which is now rapidly escalating, extends far beyond those relatively limited punishments. The Consortium of State and Corporate Power There has been some reporting — by me and others — on the new and utterly fraudulent “disinformation” industry. This newly minted, self-proclaimed expertise, grounded in little more ...

The Pentagon Brought on Both Nuclear Crises
Post Date: 2022-10-28 10:11:55 by Ada
I fully realize that when it comes to Ukraine, one is supposed to focus exclusively on Russia’s invasion and not on what the Pentagon did to gin up the crisis, a crisis that has gotten us perilously close to a world- destroying nuclear war with Russia. Nonetheless, the Pentagon’s role in this crisis needs to be emphasized, over and over again, just as the Pentagon’s role in ginning up the Cuban Missile Crisis also needs to be emphasized, over and over again. Yes, what I am emphasizing is the Pentagon’s role in ginning up both of these crises that have gotten us so close to nuclear war with Russia. At the end of the Cold War racket, there was absolutely no reason for ...

Everybody Wants to Hop on the BRICS Express
Post Date: 2022-10-28 08:48:13 by Ada
Let’s start with what is in fact a tale of Global South trade between two members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). At its heart is the already notorious Shahed-136 drone – or Geranium-2, in its Russian denomination: the AK-47 of postmodern aerial warfare. The US, in yet another trademark hysteria fit rife with irony, accused Tehran of weaponizing the Russian Armed Forces. For both Tehran and Moscow, the superstar, value-for-money, and terribly efficient drone let loose in the Ukrainian battlefield is a state secret: its deployment prompted a flurry of denials from both sides. Whether these are made in Iran drones, or the design was bought and manufacturing takes ...

The English have an Indian Prime Minister. The Mayor of the British Capital City is Sadiq Khan, a Pakistani. Will there always be an England? British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak hosted a Diwali reception at 10 Downing Street, marking the return of Lord Rama from exile according to the Hindu scripture. Sunak said: “I will do everything I can in this job to build a Britain where our children and our grandchildren can light their Diyas.” Perhaps this will be an improvement. At least Hindus recognize the struggle between good and evil. reception-at-official-residence-makes-wish-for-grandchildren- 1102749136.html Apparently ...

Deep State Villainy Thwarts Brexit

Looks like Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum officially usurped the United Kingdom's independence with the ascension of investment banker Rishi Sunak, a committed globalist and devotee of the WEF's dark arts, to the position of prime minister. Oh, how the Davos Devils must be laughing today! When the British people voted to leave the European Union back in the summer of 2016, there was great rejoicing among freedom fighters both inside and outside the U.K. who find global schemes of government not only antithetical to citizens' inherent right to national self-determination, but also the surest path toward statist tyranny.

It’s Time to Abandon America’s Fetish for “Unconditional Surrender”
Post Date: 2022-10-27 07:59:09 by Ada
Kyiv has forfeited its right to unilaterally decide for itself what concessions must be made so long as Kyiv continues to call for American taxpayers to hand over cash On Monday, thirty members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus called on the Biden administration to pursue a negotiated peace settlement or cease-fire with Ukraine. The letter from the Progressive Caucus is careful to praise the administration for its ongoing efforts to fund Kyiv’s war effort, but also concludes that not enough is being done to encourage a negotiated settlement. This position is heretical in Washington where the narrative is well dominated by the center-left militarist coalition that currently ...
