'Putin Has Just Demonstrated the Principle of the Flank'

We can no longer stand the state of the world.Vladimir Putin at the United Nations

Inside, outside, and at great distance from the United Nations on Manhattan's East Side today, it was obvious that Russian President Vladimir Putin is changing the strategic shape of world events, and has substantial support among Americans as well for a real international coalition to defeat terrorism.

He said that rapidly spreading terrorism, impoverishment, and loss of respect for life has been generated across the Mideast, North Africa and South Asia by regime change wars, or "wars for democracy," which are in violation of that UN Charter and of international law, and that this devastation would spread until it were stopped.

How Henry Kissinger Helped Create Our "Proliferated" World

The only person Henry Kissinger flattered more than President Richard Nixon was Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran. In the early 1970s, the Shah, sitting atop an enormous reserve of increasingly expensive oil and a key figure in Nixon and Kissinger’s move into the Middle East, wanted to be dealt with as a serious person.

Clinton ripped for 'outsider' candidate claim

Hillary Clinton is getting ripped for trying to claim “outsider” status in the presidential race, with Republicans pointing to her nearly four decades in politics.

“Hillary is the ultimate insider,” Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn told Fox News on Monday night. “We’re talking about a woman that hasn’t driven a car in over 26 years because someone that’s on the government payroll has been doing that for her. She is an insider and there is no way she can say outsider enough times to make people believe that.”

Hillary Clinton’s Email Server Story Continues to Crumble

The FBI has managed to extract some of Hillary Clinton’s work-related emails off her private email server, which was turned over to the agency earlier this summer. Though Clinton deleted all of her emails in 2015, and despite reports that she had the server wiped clean, she never properly managed to erase the information on the physical server.

Since she only turned over to investigators emails that her own team considered “work-related,” she managed to skate by for a while without coughing up all of her records. Now, the party’s over.

FBI investigators are able to pull up at least some emails that Clinton thought were gone forever.

Video shows IDF soldiers attacking AFP photographers

IDF soldiers were caught on film apparently breaking a camera and attacking photo journalists during clashes in the West Bank village of Bet Furik on Friday.

The clashes took place in the village, which is just east of Nablus, after the funeral of Ahmad Khatatbeh, a Palestinian who died after being shot by troops during an attempted attack on IDF checkpoint last week.

Palestinian youths took to the streets after the funeral and began clashing with IDF troops in the village.

During the clashes, the soldiers were filmed pushing back two photographers from the French news agency AFP, who were standing alongside them. One of the soldiers is seen picking up the photographer's camera from the ground and smashing it on the road, the soldier then tosses the camera off to the side.

Why Are FBI Agents Trammeling the Rights of Antiwar Activists?

It’s certainly not the first time the FBI has engaged in the harassment of political dissidents. Indeed, the FBI’s surveillance of antiwar activists dates back to at least World War I, to include surveillance of Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams. The bureau has been an equal opportunity abuser of the rights of antiwar activists, whether on the left (like Addams and the FRSO) or on the libertarian side of the spectrum.

These incidents, while separated in time by nearly 100 years, also share another feature. No FBI agent or manager has ever been fired or prosecuted for violating the constitutional rights of those individuals or groups wrongly surveilled, harassed or charged.

Just four days prior to the FBI raids against the Anti-War Committee and the FRSO, the Department of Justice Inspector General [IG] released the results of an investigation into post-9/11 surveillance of peace groups and other domestic dissidents up through 2006.

Rush Limbaugh: NASA Using Mars as Proof of Climate Change

Radio host Rush Limbaugh came down hard Monday on NASA's claim of finding water on Mars, stating that the dubious science would be used to promote the climate change agenda here on Earth.

Limbaugh read from a U.S. News & World Report article on the finding, saying, "quote, 'Eons ago, ancient Mars had "an extensive atmosphere," along with "an ocean two-thirds the size of the northern hemisphere and a mile deep," said Jim Green, director of planetary science at NASA said during a press conference on Monday.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Carbonazis have tried to use Mars as a scarecrow, claiming that if we humans do not change our ways, Earth will lose most of its atmosphere and water the way Mars did.

But there is another factor they are ignoring.

If you look at a height map of Mars...

... you will notice a huge bulge in the planet underneath the Tharsis region, where the massive volcanoes are located. On almost the opposite side of Mars is a feature called Hellas, which is clearly the remains of a massive impact.

An impact sufficient to create such a vast crater and bulge out the opposite side of Mars, would "splash" the planet's atmosphere and water out into space, and I suggest that this event, rather than Martian Caused Barsoomic Warming, is why Mars has scant atmosphere and water today.

Holocaust Lobby condemns Austria

On September 24, 75 Jewish, Christian and Hindu Holocaust historians including the conman Eli Wiesel sent a petition to Austria’s ambassador in Washington, Hans Peter Manz, demanding that Austrian president Heinz Fischer (a ceremonial post with not much power) pardon Austrian Jewish Holocaust historian Stephen Teml.

Stephen Teml was sentenced in 2003 by a Vienna criminal court for falsifying Austrian history during WWII by claiming that his family property worth millions of dollars was seized and not returned after the Nazis led the Anschluss of Austria in 1938. In April 2013, a judge at Vienna criminal court upheld the charges against the so-called Holocaust survivor, saying Teml was “greedy” and wanted the “highest amount of money for himself”.

The ‘Holocaust survivor’ is expected to serve his one year jail sentence soon.

"Minority Report" Is 40 Years Ahead of Schedule: The Fictional World Has Become Reality

We are a scant 40 years away from the futuristic world that science fiction author Philip K. Dick envisioned for Minority Report in which the government is all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful, and if you dare to step out of line, dark-clad police SWAT teams will crack a few skulls to bring the populace under control. Increasingly, the world around us resembles Dick’s dystopian police state in which the police combine widespread surveillance, behavior prediction technologies, data mining and precognitive technology to capture would-be criminals before they can do any damage. In other words, the government’s goal is to prevent crimes before they happen: precrime.

Bible-thumping Texas public school principal accused of covering up student molestation for ‘PR’ reasons

A high school principal in Texas –already under fire for conducting daily Bible readings with his students — has been accused of harassing a whistle-blower teacher for going to the cops about a fellow teacher sexually assaulting a student, reports the Dallas Morning News.

According to former teacher MariBeth Thomas, Prosper High principal Greg Wright called her on the carpet for turning to the police after a student confided in her that a teacher had been touching her and making sexual advances.

In a lawsuit filed against the school district, Thomas claims Wright was upset with her for going to the police, saying he viewed news of the molestation as a public relations issue.

Shilling For Washington, Charlie Rose Gets Shellacked By Vlad

Did Charlie Rose look like a fucking idiot last night on 60-Minutes, or what, asking Vladimir Putin how he could know for sure that the US was behind the 2014 Ukraine coup against President Viktor Yanukovych? Maybe the idiots are the 60-Minutes producers and fluffers who are supposed to prep Charlie’s questions. Putin seemed startled and amused by this one on Ukraine: how could he know for sure?

Well, gosh, because Ukraine was virtually a province of Russia in one form or another for hundreds of years, and Russia has a potent intelligence service (formerly called the KGB) that had assets and connections threaded through Ukrainian society like the rhizomorphs of the fungus Armillaria solidipes through a conifer forest. Gosh, Charlie, it’s like asking Obama whether the NSA might know what’s going on in Texas.

Taliban storms into northern Afghan city in major blow for security forces

Taliban insurgents fought their way into a major city in northern Afghanistan on Monday, driving back stunned security forces in a multi-pronged attack that also sent Afghan officials and U.N. personnel fleeing for safety.

The fall of Kunduz would be a huge blow to the Western-backed government in Kabul and would give Taliban insurgents a critical base of operations beyond their traditional strongholds in Afghanistan’s south. Afghan government leaders and the U.S.-led coalition here view the battle for Kunduz as a key test of the Afghan security forces in their continuing fight with the Taliban.

Details of the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) torture program have been unlawfully kept from public view, according to a complaint filed with the National Archives.

OpenTheGovernment.org listed in a complaint (pdf) five areas of concern that have been classified or redacted from the version of the Senate’s torture report executive summary, released in December 2014.

“Secrecy regarding ‘black sites’ and torture has played a major role in ensuring that no CIA personnel could be prosecuted for torture, war crimes, destruction of evidence, or other relevant federal crimes. It has ensured that civil courts were closed to victims of torture, indefinitely delayed trials of the accused perpetrators of the September 11 attacks, and put the United States in breach of its obligations under the Convention Against Torture,” according to the complaint, signed by OpenTheGovernment national security fellow Katherine Hawkins.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Torture has been a huge, dark, and literally bloody stain on this country's history, and needs to be made completely public.

And the reason it needs to be made completely public is so it never happens, ever, again.

Because when the US tortures, or outsources torture, that demonstrates to the world that this country has no morals; it makes a mockery of every value we allege we hold dear, like human rights and democracy; and gives carte blanche to other government leaders to do precisely the same with military and civilians.

Monsanto has many weapons in its arsenal when it comes to eliminating competition from non-GMO and organic farmers. After more than two decades of pushing their products onto US farmland with purposely flawed safety studies, the sheer presence of genetically modified crops poses an existential threat to the business of traditional and organic farming.

A new report has come out showing the extraordinary costs that non-GMO and organic farmers incur from GMO contamination of their crops.

“Results from the newest USDA survey indicate that of the farmers who chose to answer the question, 92 had experienced monetary loss between 2011 and 2014 averaging approximately $66,395 per farmer during that timeframe. Overall, GMO presence cost organic farmers at least $6.1 million over four years. This figure is 77 times that reported during the 2006 to 2011 timeframe—a staggering increase.”

State Department says classified material on Hillary's home-brew server was so sensitive that the safe it gave her lawyer to store the emails wasn't secure enough

The State Department has told Senate investigators that it didn't provide Hillary Rodham Clinton's lawyer with a secure-enough method to read now-highly classified material from her homebrew email server because it didn't anticipate that the messages would be deemed so secret.

In July, State Department officials installed a safe at the office of attorney David Kendall after the government determined some of Clinton's emails may have contained classified information.

But it said last week the safe wasn't suitable for so-called top secret, sensitive compartmented information, known as TS/SCI, which the government has said was found in some messages.

If Russia wants complete security for its forces and airbases in Syria, it must secure Jisr Al-Shughoor. And so, Syria’s National Security Adviser, Gen. Ali Mamlook, flew to Moscow on June 29, 2015 and met with his counterparts in the Russian Defense Ministry and the Kremlin. In September, Gen. Qaasim Sulaymaani traveled to Moscow to further shore up an agreement that would envision the arrival of Russian forces and materiel to Syria in order to finish off ISIS, Alqaeda/Nusra and the U.S. conspiracy. Why is Jisr Al-Shughoor important? Look at the map and see how it sits directly in the center of Syria’s huge agricultural valley called the Waadi Al-Ghaab. Look at how it is situated on the road which rises to the west all the way up the mountains and bypasses a large number of villages only to finally give terrorists an unobstructed view across the serene coastal mountains with trajectories capable of striking Russian military assets.

STOP the University of California from Banning Criticism of Israel

In a draft Statement of Principles[2], you refused to conflate criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism but still called for broad restrictions on intolerance. The LA Times[3] editorial board said your statement failed the free-speech test.

Even so, student lobbyists and Israeli lobby organizations pressured you to form a new committee to revisit the State Department’s definition of anti-Semitism in order to further restrict political speech.

While we, the petitioners, denounce racism and bigotry against Jews, Muslims, and any and all ethnicities, religions, and gender identities, we also recognize that California already has laws[4] on the books against hate crimes and hate speech that carries an implicit threat. We do not need a duplicative policy statement or an unconstitutional Statement of Principles designed to silence voices that question the status quo.

The End of the World Has Come… and Gone!

Two thousand years ago the Roman historian and journalist Tacitus wrote a wonderful description of the eviction of money merchants (really debt merchants) from Italy in A.D. 27 by the Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar (it was not Jesus, BTW; that story was I believe embedded in the bible assembled at the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 300 because the Word of the Son of God would carry more weight against the Ancient Curse of Usury than that of a rather obscure Roman Emperor.

By the time Tiberius took over, the Roman Empire was in an economic shambles and the Romans had had enough of compound interest with its massive rates, bankruptcies and multiple foreclosures forced by private money merchants that robbed them of their properties, just like today.

Speaking to a crowd of about 40 men and a handful of women at the Diaspora Yeshiva seminary in the Old City of Jerusalem, the leaders of the Sanhedrin gave a series of speeches excoriating Pope Francis, US President Barack Obama, the European Union, the United Nations and other international bodies for not supporting Israel’s claims to “exclusive patrimony” over all of historic Palestine.

For three hours, the rabbis oscillated between accusing world leaders of plotting genocide against the Jewish people, and themselves calling for Jews to commit genocide against Muslims, Christians and other non-Jews.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And as usual the corporate media ignores this.

Netanyahu: At UN, I Will Stress Israel's Desire for Peace With Palestinians

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said before flying out to New York for the UN General Assembly that he intends to "highlight Israel's desire for peace with the Palestinians" during his Thursday speech and his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday. Netanyahu also said he will urge the Palestinians to stop inciting unrest on Temple Mount.

"I will stress that unfortunately, the Palestinians continue to spread blatant lies about our policy on Temple Mount, and I will demand an end to this wild incitement," he said upon arriving at Ben-Gurion International Airport. "Israel is committed to the status quo, which it maintains. The Palestinian rioters who bring weapons to Temple Mount are the ones who harm the holy place and are the ones violating the status quo."

Athough it is true that the majority of doctors support vaccines, most of them don’t even know what vaccines contain or their dangers. Their training ends with knowing how to administer them. They are taught vaccine reactions are rare and they are quick to share the same assurances with their patients. These assurances are not based on objective science but merely on what they were told, what they were taught. Whether layperson or scientist, high school drop out or M.D., no one can research vaccine manufacturers, vaccine laws, and vaccine injuries and then conclude that vaccines are 100% safe and effective. All you have to do is read the warning insert for any vaccine to learn that truth.

Nasa Mars mystery solved: Space agency announces discovery of flowing briny water on Red Planet

Nasa has announced the discovery of traces of "briny flows" on the surface of Mars in a revelation that could point to life on the Red Planet. The US space agency put out a statement titled Nasa to announce Mars mystery solved on 24 September, stating that it will announce a "major science finding from the agency's ongoing exploration of Mars" at a news briefing on 28 September.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NASA, as usual, is way behind the times. More than likely they are grandstanding ahead of the budget discussions in Congress! Liquid water, presumably very salty, was spotted in a photo taken by the rover Opportunity in December 2004!

And, of course, indigenous Martian life was detected by Dr. Gilbert Levin's Labeled Release Experiment on the Viking missions in 1976.


UPDATE: Today NASA has changed the story to say they have "confirmed" the presence of liquid water on the surface of Mars!

Obama: ‘Mistakes’ Made in NATO War on Libya, US Should’ve Done Even More

Speaking today at the UN General Assembly, President Obama took a surprisingly contrite stance, however briefly, on the NATO war against Libya, conceding that “mistakes were made” in a war that led to the current state, with much of Libya ungoverned and multiple competing city-based governments vying for control.

Not that Obama regrets the war. Rather, he insists that the US and NATO should’ve “done more” to ensure that the pro-NATO government propped up after the ouster of Gadhafi was able to survive. In short, his regret on a disastrous war is that he didn’t double down on it.

Pro-Israel hopefuls line up to fill power vacuum in US House

Despite what may become a rancorous fight within the Republican conference over who will fill a series of leadership positions following Boehner’s departure, Daroff believed that the “vacuum” left by Boehner’s departure will not remain empty for long.

“The good news is that there is a strong bipartisan majority in both houses of Congress that is supportive of a strong US-Israel relationship and the names being mentioned to replace Speaker Boehner — particularly House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — are people who also have in their ‘kishkes’ strong recognition of Israel’s prime role as a key ally of the United States, so I think that clearly there will be a vacuum and he will be missed, but I think that nature abhors a vacuum and the pro-Israel community will have other champions who will rise to the occasion.”

Pope Francis speaks with God

The Pope was sitting in his Popemobile bubble outside the UN. He was eating a Twix and looking over his speech notes when the phone rang. He picked up.

Pope: Yes?

God: It’s God, Francis. What’s happening down there?

Pope: What, no hello, how are you doing?

God: Cut the crap. Is the UN buying your end-poverty-hunger-global warming pitch?

Pope: Of course. The UN, Obama, and I are on the same page. That’s why I’m here in New York. You think I’d visit this place otherwise? Looks like they won’t even let me go see the Mets.

The Western Media Is Dying and Here’s Why

Seymour Hersh has risked much over his decades of journalism. He is a true journalist who has been attacked, slandered, and shunned by all sides simply because he seems to resist taking any side.

When he reported on US atrocities in Vietnam, he was first attacked and denounced as a traitor or worse. In time, both the truth and Hersh were vindicated and the importance of what he did as a journalist to both inform the public and serve as a check and balance against the special interests of ruling power were recognized with a Pultizer Prize.

In Gaza, No Figures Can Express the Sorrow

If there is any reason for our existence, at least it should be our capacity to inform about a story while it is happening, in a way that nobody can say: “We did not know, nobody had told us anything” ~Robert Fisk

I don’t know if pain can destroy or fortify, I only know that pain changes everything. I also know that the recollection of such suffering shall remain, has to remain in my memory. At the beginning of the Israeli aggression, the first days of last July, I had promised myself not to forget the names of the children that were killed, those who I photographed horrified in the nightmare’s morgues in Gaza under fire.

In that moment I didn’t know that it would be impossible to keep that promise. More than 500 names of children, destroyed by bombs should be now pronounced by my voice, one by one. However, I do not forget, I can not nor want to forget.

U.S. gives up effort to train Syrian opposition forces

President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday met privately, about their opposite views of the 4-year-old war in Syria that has led to the rise of ISIS and set off an enormous refugee crisis.

All this on the same day the Pentagon was forced to concede a key part of the president's Syria policy is a dismal failure. The program to train and equip Syrian opposition forces has been suspended.

The $500-million program had once been a linchpin of the strategy to defeat ISIS but so far has proved a fiasco. It was put on hold after a band of fighters turned over their U.S.-supplied equipment to terrorists linked to al Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say I am getting all these very nasty emails from women who don't want to be "that kind of girl" and bother with birth control and see abortion as retro-active birth control when they get pregnant. The emails contain the usual arguments; it is a blob of protoplasm, it cannot feel pain, men (including husbands) have nothing to say about it and SHUT THE HECK UP!!!!!

But I think in their heart if hearts they know they are wrong or they would not work so hard trying to force everyone to see the issue from their point of view.

As for myself; I am a big boy and I can make up my own mind thankyouverymuch.

Is Glencore The Next Lehman? The World’s Largest Commodities Trading Company Is Toast

Are we about to witness the most important global financial event since the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008? Glencore has been known as the largest commodities trading company on the entire planet, and at one time it was ranked as the 10th biggest company in the world. It is linked to trillions of dollars of derivatives trades globally, and if the firm were to implode it would be a financial disaster unlike anything that we have seen in Europe since the end of World War II. Unfortunately, all signs are pointing to an inescapable death spiral for Glencore at this point.

BEX Alert!!! - "Bill Clinton revives an old conspiracy tale as he prepares to hit the trail "

Bill and Hillary Clinton have long believed in a unified-field theory about their opponents — one that she memorably dubbed a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” And they have their own theory of the moment it all began. . .

. . . And Hillary Clinton’s standing in the polls has fallen amid a controversy over her use of a private e-mail account and server, rather a government one, while she was secretary of state.

“It always happens,” Bill Clinton said in the CNN interview. “You’re seeing history repeat itself.”

Mixed Signals from Moscow: Putin’s Russia, Israel and the Middle East

If Putin were truly “anti-Zionist” he would not have any relations with Israel whatsoever and would support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Offering to safeguard Israel’s security with Russian investment in its economy is hardly a gesture of hostility. And signing a 20-year gas deal with Israel evidently signifies that Putin’s Russia believes the Jewish state will continue to exist 20 years in the future.

Civil Asset Forfeiture: A System in Need of Reform

While forfeiture law initially had a narrow and commendable goal, its scope has since expanded dramatically. Today, more than 400 federal statutes covering a wide array of crimes authorize forfeiture.[3] In addition, virtually every state has its own body of forfeiture laws. These statutes allow for the seizing of all manner of real and personal property, from a family’s home to a small business’s bank account. As forfeiture’s reach has grown, so too has the risk of seizing property from innocent people. Unfortunately, there are few procedural protections for innocent property owners. It is fair to characterize forfeiture law as an unlevel playing field that favors law enforcement in nearly every way possible.

The Power of False Narrative

Strategic communications” or Stratcom, a propaganda/psy-op technique that treats information as a “soft power” weapon to wield against adversaries, is a new catch phrase in an Official Washington obsessed with the clout that comes from spinning false narratives.

In this age of pervasive media, the primary method of social control is through the creation of narratives delivered to the public through newspapers, TV, radio, computers, cell phones and any other gadget that can convey information. This reality has given rise to an obsession among the power elite to control as much of this messaging as possible.

The internet was abuzz about the final blood moon of a tetrad that aligned with Jewish holidays, what dreadful event may come, something big was going to happen to Israel claimed Zionist shill and pastoral pig John Hagee. He claimed such signs in the heavens were messages from almighty God about Israel.

You have to understand that fat assed Hagee thinks every event in the heavens revolves around Israel because he believes that God only cares about this one nation. This is Jewish ethnocentrism being transferred via the memes of the Holy Bible into the minds of stupid American Christian sheep who care more about Israel than their own nation.

Thermite and the WTC Collapses

In perfect conditions the maximum temperature that can be reached by hydrocarbons such as jet fuel burning in air is 1520° F (825° C). When the World Trade Center collapsed the deeply buried fires would have been deprived of oxygen and their temperatures would have significantly decreased.

Why was the temperature at the core of "the pile" nearly 500° F hotter than the maximum burning temperature of jet fuel a full seven days after the collapses? There were no infernos in either of the twin towers before they collapsed, so what caused the hot spots deep in the wreckage?

World Trade Center 2: There Was No Inferno

Have a good think about the account of Mr Praimnath. The plane impacted the floor he was on, and yet it he saw only flames flickering about. The WTC floors were open planned - there were no solid walls.

If the official account of the WTC fires were true then Mr Praimnath would not have survived because the floor he was on would have been consumed by an 800ºC inferno.

The fact that he is alive proves an inferno did not exist.

Kunstler: Did Charlie Rose look like a fucking idiot last night on 60-Minutes, or what.....?

Charlie Rose, 60-Minutes — and perhaps by extension US government agencies with an interest in propagandizing — seem to want to put over the story that Russia has involved itself in Syria only to aggrandize its role on in world affairs.

Forgive me for being so blunt, but what sort of stupid fucking idea is this? And are there any non-lobotomized adults left in the USA who can’t see straight through it? The truth is that American policy in Syria (plus Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, Somalia, Afghanistan) is an impressive record of failure in terms of the one basic aim that most rational people might agree upon: stabilizing the region in a way that does not leave Islamic jihadi maniacs in charge.

Ever since the global financial crisis of 2008, a secessionist movement has been picking up speed in the Catalonia region of Spain. This is due to the fact that Catalonia happens to be the most prosperous state in Spain, and many of their residents are tired of paying more taxes than their countrymen, while receiving less in return. In addition, Catalonia has its own unique history, language and culture that has been suppressed by the Spanish government in the past.

However, I’m sure that even the Pope was a little shocked to find that one of his looniest fans was a Congressman.

Hillary’s New Tactic to Dismiss Email Server Controversy: Laugh It All off as a “Conspiracy Theory”

It was Hillary’s way of defending Bill and combating the multitude of scandal allegations plaguing their stay in the White House, up to and including the Lewinsky scandal about which his lies eventually got him impeached.

Well, Hillary — who just keeps sauntering around the countryside acting like she really thinks she is going to be president no matter what — is playing that tired old tactic again in reference to the email server scandal that will not die.

When Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd attempted to ask her a question recently, she laughed it off as “another conspiracy theory”.

Obama, Putin clash over vision for resolving Syrian crisis

US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin clashed over their competing visions for Syria, with Obama urging a political transition to replace the Syrian president but Putin warning it would be a mistake to abandon the current government.

Obama and Putin's dueling speeches at a United Nations General Assembly summit served as a public preview of their private meeting late Monday. The sit-down marks their first face-to-face encounter in nearly a year and comes amid escalating Russian military engagement in Syria.

Obama said he was open to working with Russia, as well as Iran, to bring Syria's civil war to an end. He called for a "managed transition" that would result in the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose forces have clashed with rebels for more than four years, creating a vacuum for the Islamic State and other extremist groups.

The rally in Prague with slogans about exit of the Czech Republic from NATO

Today in the centre of Prague there is about a hundred protesters. They demanded the withdrawal of the Czech Republic out of NATO.
The organizer of the rally made public the Committee "No bases!", who became famous about 10 years ago with protests against the establishment of American military base with a radar in the Czech Republic, reports RIA Novosti citing local media.
The protesters were holding banners saying "get out of NATO, Ukraine in NATO = war in Europe" and others.
