    CrossTalk on North Korea: ‘Olympic Truce’



    Published on 12 Jan 2018
    It is being called the Olympic Truce. After months of over the top rhetoric,
    the two Koreas are talking again – the first time in 2 years. Is this a serious
    diplomatic opening or merely a ploy? South Korea appears to welcome this
    opening. Does the same apply to Washington?

    Trump to approve Iran nuclear deal for last time

    US President Donald Trump says he is extending sanctions relief for Iran one last
    time so Europe and the US can fix the nuclear deal's "terrible flaws".

    The waiver he will sign suspends US sanctions on Iran for another 120 days.
    The White House wants EU signatories to agree permanent restrictions on Iran's
    uranium enrichment. Under the current deal they are set to expire in 2025.

    Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said it was a "desperate attempt" to
    undermine a "solid" deal.Germany said it would continue to call for the deal's full
    implementation and would consult on a "common way forward" with the UK and
    France.Mr Trump also wants Iran's ballistic missile programme to be addressed.

    'Ukraine on Fire': How US, Not Russia, Destroyed Ukraine - Oliver Stone Documentary Finally Available (VIDEO)

    Sott.net
    Fri, 12 Jan 2018 12:00 UTC



    Oliver Stone's seminal documentary Ukraine on Fire has finally been made available to watch in the West.

    Ukraine, the 'borderlands' between Russia and 'civilized' Europe is on fire. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and Russia's access to the Mediterranean.

    The Maidan Massacre in early 2014 triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, spurred Crimeans to secede and join Russia, and sparked a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.

    Russia was portrayed by Western media as the perpetrator, and has been sanctioned and widely condemned as such. But was Russia responsible for what happened?

    Ukraine on Fire provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which led to the 2004 Orange Revolution, the 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically-elected Yanukovych.

    Covered by Western media as a 'popular revolution', it was in fact a coup d'état scripted and staged by ultra-nationalist groups and the US State Department.

    Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how US-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 1980s, replacing the CIA in promoting America's geopolitical agenda abroad.

    Executive producer Oliver Stone gained unprecedented access to the inside story through his on-camera interviews with former President Viktor Yanukovych and Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaliy Zakharchenko, who explain how the US Ambassador and factions in Washington actively plotted for regime change.

    And, in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Stone solicits Putin's take on the significance of Crimea, NATO and the US's history of interference in elections and regime change in the region.

    The film was originally released in 2016, but unsurprisingly, Stone came up against problems distributing the film in the US and western countries. A Russian-dubbed version was available almost immediately and was aired on TV in Russia, but people in the 'free world' were left without access to the full film.

    Now, at last, the full exposé is available on YouTube. Though, of course, everyone is encouraged to purchase a copy to support Stone's important work.

    Syria war: US Kurdish 'border force' plan denounced

    15 Jan 2017.....

    About half of the border force will be made up of Syrian Democratic Forces fighters

    Key powers involved in Syria's civil war have criticised the US for helping an allied
    Kurdish-led militia set up a 30,000-strong "border security force".

    Turkey's president vowed to "suffocate" efforts to train the Syrian Democratic Forces
    (SDF) and create what he called a "terror army".

    Turkey considers Kurdish fighters, prominent in the SDF, to be terrorists.

    Syria's government decried the "blatant assault" on its sovereignty, and Russia warned
    it could lead to partition.With US help, the SDF has captured tens of thousands of square
    kilometres of territory from Islamic State (IS) militants.In October, the alliance took full
    control of the northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the "caliphate" declared by
    the jihadist group in 2014.Since then, SDF fighters have been advancing southwards
    along the eastern side of the Euphrates river valley, clearing the last remaining militants
    from the desert area.

    Baghdad suicide bombers kill dozens in attack on labourers



    Some victims were buried hours later in the Shia Muslim holy city of Najaf

    Two suicide bombers have killed at least 35 people and injured 90 in an attack on a
    Baghdad square where day labourers gather to look for work.

    They set off their devices at intervals, sending people scattering across Tayaran
    Square in the centre of the Iraqi capital.Scores of labourers are said to be among
    the dead and injured. Attacks on the city had become less frequent since the
    Islamic State group lost its Iraqi strongholds last year.

    The government declared it had retaken all territory overrun by the Sunni Muslim
    militants since 2014.

    Russia Destroys World’s First
    Drone Swarm Attack, 1981

    (Jan 15, 2018)
    Synopsis:
    The Russian military stationed in western Syria fought off the world’s first militarized swarm of drones the night of Jan. 5th-6th.

    As darkness fell Russian radar detected a swarm of 13 drones headed towards two of their bases from a significant distance away. Ten of the assault drones attacked the new Russian air base and 3 attacked the naval base.

    But for some reason the Russians were ready. Their Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missiles destroyed even of the incoming drones, and the other six were hacked with radio equipment. Three of those six did manage to drop explosives which appeared to be modified mortar rounds, severely damaging 2 Russian fighter-bombers before being brought down.

    Flight data indicates that the GPS-guided drones were launched by terrorists at a distance of about 62 miles away. The drones were cheaply-constructed airplane-like aircraft with about a 6-foot wingspan, but guided by very sophisticated GPS satellite navigation systems.

    The Russian Defense Ministry said that the sophistication of the nav systems indicated that the attack was supported by what they called a technologically advanced state. Russian specialists are trying to determine the origin of those nav system.

    Israel is a good guess ? they have been helping rebel forces , the CIA
    are supposed to have stopped direct aid but that does not usually stop them.

    Long, but worth it. Beginning is about Trump's agenda in US. Starting around 16:00 begins discussing current and future US policies in Ukraine, Syria and other parts of the Middle East. His ultimate outlook is a very positive one.

    Blessed are the cracked, for they are the ones who let in the light!
