Published 2019-02-19 18:00:46 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Mena, Russia, United-States

MOSCOW, Russia – The recent Warsaw summit on the Middle East has shown that the United States wants to create new lines of separation in the Middle East, while the decision to establish working groups to solve regional problems demonstrates the US desire to act unilaterally, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said. “The main objective of the Warsaw Forum, as expected, was an attempt to consolidate the positions of its participants in support of Washington’s destructive agenda of total opposition to Tehran, which had to be seen as the ‘main source of instability in the region.

Trump hilariously fails at persuading defections in Venezuelan military, Maduro denounces Nazi rhetoric

CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has accused US President Donald Trump of giving a “Nazi-style” speech because he thinks he can give orders to the Venezuelan military.

Earlier, the US president asked the Venezuelan military to withdraw their support for Maduro… Continue ->

Published 2019-02-19 10:58:07 by Guest Author in Anglo-5, Eu, Germany, Headline-News, Opinions, United-States

By Tom Luongo – If the Anti-Iran conference in Warsaw was the opening act, the annual Munich Security Conference was the main event. Both produced a lot of speeches, grandstanding and virtue-signaling, as well as a lot of shuffling of feet and looking at the ground. The message from the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia was clear, “We are still committed to the destruction of Syria as a functional state to end the growing influence of Iran.” Europe, for the most part, doesn’t buy that argument anymore. Germany certainly doesn’t. France is only interested in how they can curry favor… Continue ->
