US Threatens Russia With "a Very Serious Series of Steps"

Untitled-1.jpg

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has threatened "a very serious series of steps" against Russia with the European Union in response to Crimea’s vote on Sunday to break away from Ukraine.   During a state panel hearing, Kerry said: "If there is no sign of any capacity to be able to move forward and resolve this issue, there will be a very serious series of steps on Monday in Europe and here with respect the options that are available to us," "Now our choice is not to be put in the position of having to do that," he added….

1.jpg

Crimea’s parliament has voted to join Russia in a dramatic escalation of the crisis over the Ukrainian region that has drawn serious condemnation from the US, UK and other Western countries with their interests. The US has now ordered sanctions on those responsible for Moscow’s military intervention in Ukraine, including bans on travel to the United States and freezing of their U.S. assets. Here’s what we know has happened so far in the Ukraine-Russia-US debacle: Crimea’s parliament has voted to join Russia in a dramatic escalation of the crisis over the Ukrainian region that has drawn serious condemnation from the…

Election-20130823154312322431-600x400.jpg

Australia will be sharing the cost of housing a 2500+ man US marines force near Darwin. Earlier this month PM Tony Abbott confirmed that an infrastructure would be built to accommodate over 1100 marines in Northern Australia by the end of next year "That does mean providing the necessary infrastructure on the ground to enable the rotation to be of benefit to us, of benefit to the marines and of benefit to the region – We will make this work for the benefit of our country and for the benefit of the wider world." In April, a US congressional committee…

Russian officials at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport have given the necessary approval documents to American whistle-blower Edward Snowden that would allow him to leave the airport around late August or September. His father Lon Snowden recommended that his son stay in Russia. “I feel Russia has the strength and resolve and convictions to protect my son,” he told Russian TV station Rossiya 24. “If it were me, I would stay in Russia and that’s what I hope my son will do,” he said, adding that he hopes to soon have the chance to visit him. Addressing his son, Lon Snowden said,…

CIA-NSA-Edward-Snowden_1.jpg

The tensions between Edward Snowden, the U.S. and Europe have dramatically increased after Secret documents of U.S. intelligence have revealed that the NSA controls an extensive amount of surveillance of telecommunications in Germany.

A confidential arrangement shows that the NSA has not been actively Canada, Australia, Britain and New Zealand. This information is developing so…

Re-Opening the 1988 Lockerbie Bombing Investigations: The Story and Future.

PanAm103.jpg

The Lockerbie bombing in 1988 was the bombing of a long-haul flight from London Heathrow Airport to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. A Boeing 747–121 (PAN AM 103) was destroyed by an explosive device killing all 243 passengers and 16 crew members. Large sections of the plane crashed into Lockerbie, in southern Scotland, killing an additional 11 people on the ground. In 2001, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was convicted of the bombing but freed on “compassionate grounds” 8 years later. A doctor claimed he had less than three months to live but did not die until May of 2012. Over…

The Scottish Independence Referendum: What? When? Why? Pros? Cons?

Scottish-Independence.jpg

First of all, let me state the following: I am a Scottish male currently living outside of the UK. I was born in Falkirk and I oppose the bids for Scottish Independence for the logistical reasons tied to separating a country bound in union for over 300 years. A BRIEF HISTORY LESSON: During the last 50 years or so, the South of England has, politically, staggered further and further towards the right (Conservative or ‘Tory’ as they are often nicknamed) whilst Scotland has been static and mostly mid-left-wing (Labour). Conversely, there are substantially more people in Southern England than in…

The Irish Republican Army (IRA): The World’s Forgotten Terrorists.

clip_image0024.jpg

In December 2012 the then-Secretary of State Hilary Clinton greeted IRA terrorist Martin McGuinness with delight; showing the hypocrisy of America’s understanding of what terrorism is and what freedom fighting is. The IRA murdered hundreds of people. Many foreign nations see them as ‘liberty rebels’, but ultimately, they took the lives of thousands of civilians. McGuinness authorized the murder of hundreds of Ulster men and women as well as contributing to the deaths of British servicemen. Clinton’s husband sanctioned the bombing of Belgrade/Serbia resulting in the deaths of many who stood up to Islam; it’s no wonder the two get…

randyblythetrial-getty-400-afp.jpg

An update on this story: Lamb of God Vocalist Indicted on Manslaughter Charges after Fan Falls from Stage. A Czech court has acquitted the lead vocalist, Randy Blythe, of Lamb of God on charges that he caused the death of a fan. The hearing had accused Blythe, 42, of causing the death of the 19-year old fan by pushing him off the stage at a 2010 concert. The Czech media purportedly portrayed Randy Blythe as the member of a ‘dark’ band and suggested that his defence – pushing a fan back who leaped at him towards the stage – was…

North Korean Nuclear Test Causes Man-Made Earthquake: Cutting Through the Propaganda and Condemnations.

AREA.png

News and apprehension has come in after the confirmation that on 12 February 2013, North Korea conducted an underground nuclear test. Whilst many (including ourselves) often cite these reports as excuses to secure political condemnations against North Korea, it has been verified that a tremor of up to a magnitude of 5.1 was detected. As expected, the event has received virtually universal condemnation from global leaders. According to Korean state media, the North Korean government gave 14 hours’ notice to the US, Russia and China. These countries have yet to verify the claims. North Korea’s news outlets have called out…
