Permalink NATO Claims ‘Immunity’ to Serbian Lawsuits on Use of Depleted Uranium in 1999 Bombings

The Western alliance spent 78 days bombing Yugoslavia in 1999, contaminating the Balkan nation with at least 15 tonnes of highly toxic depleted uranium (DU) munitions. Serbian attorneys have filed multiple lawsuits against NATO, but have yet to receive any formal admission of wrongdoing by the alliance for its actions. NATO has formally responded to lawsuits filed by Serbs with the Belgrade High Court over the bloc’s DU munitions use during the 1999 bombing campaign, claiming immunity from prosecution, Srdan Aleksic, a lawyer representing victims, has told Sputnik Serbia. [...] Serbia suffers one of the highest cancer rates in Europe, with nearly 60,000 oncology patients diagnosed each year and the cancer rate among children up to 2.5 times above the European average. Serbian doctors are convinced that the high oncology rate is directly connected to the liberal use of DU munitions during the NATO bombing. Along with cancers, scientists have reported an alarming spike in infertility, autoimmune diseases and mental disorders over the past two decades, including post-traumatic stress and other psychological problems associated with the bombings.

Permalink "Western media turns blind eye to US occupation of oil-rich Syrian regions"

Prague, SANA- Former Slovak Minister of Education, Science, Research, Juraj Draxler said the continued presence of US occupation of part of the Syrian territory constitutes a blatant violation of international law, adding that this occupation has caused thousands of casualties among the Syrians. “The United States rudely occupies part of Syria’s lands, especially the most fertile and oil-rich regions,” Draxler said in an article published on “Novinky – regionálny” news website, slamming the Western media for turning a blind eye to these facts. He added that the Syrian people have achieved great victories in their war on terrorism and its backers, and this has been achieved only through massive sacrifices made over the past years.

Gonzalo Lira II: Few people know that the US every day STEALS oil and grain from Syria, under the guise of “fighting terrorism”. Just another reason why everyone in the civilized world hates America.

Washington moves to annex north-east Syria by proxy Vanessa Beeley | Needless to say that the de-facto unilateral sanctions being applied as a collective punishment for the entire Syrian population living in areas protected by the Syrian government are illegal. To extend those sanctions to sovereign nations providing assistance to rebuild Syrian infrastructure is barbaric and a deliberate attempt by the US to ensure that Syria cannot recover from the eleven year war waged against it. The correlation between economic and military coercion in Syria was made clear by previous Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo’s point-man on Syria, Ambassador James Jeffrey, who not only described Al Qaeda as a “US asset” in Syria but also bragged openly about the misery that sanctions had brought to the Syrian people.

Permalink Hungary declares state of emergency

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, citing the conflict in Ukraine, just hours after parliament approved the measure as a way for Budapest to respond to crisis situations. Orban announced the emergency in a video address on his Facebook page. The emergency regime takes effect at midnight, and the first measures will be revealed on Wednesday.

💬 “To safeguard Hungary’s national security interests, to make sure we stay out of the war and to protect Hungarian families, the government needs room to maneuver and the ability to act immediately,” Orban said in the announcement.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Hungarian parliament passed a constitutional amendment giving the prime minister authority to declare an emergency if there is a war or humanitarian disaster in a neighboring country, in addition to the existing crisis categories. Orban’s critics claim this will allow him to “rule by decree” and bypass lawmakers.

Permalink Puppet Zelensky on Bended Knee and Dismal Economic Reality in the West

Stephen Lendman | The former no longer funny comedian/entertainer — masquerading as Nazified Ukraine’s leader — once again embarrassed himself on Monday from his Polish hideout. Addressing the World Economic Forum (WEF) — an organization hell bent to establish ruler/serf societies worldwide — he called for more weapons, more sanctions on Russia, more help for Ukraine’s battered military and crumbling economy “as fast as possible.” Fiddling in Poland while Ukraine burns, he called on “everyone” to support Nazi-infested Kiev, to pour more billions down a black hole of waste, fraud and abuse to aid its scourge. [...] A caricature of a leader, clearly not the real thing, Zelensky is captive to US dark forces controlling him.

Permalink Pfizer Tells Federal Judge that Pfizer Owns the Federal Government and Is thereby Immune to Normal Contract Law

Paul Craig Roberts | Pfizer affirms that its agreement with Washington under “Other Transaction Authority” permits Pfizer to violate clinical trial regulations and federal laws protecting the public. In other words, Pfizer has legal authority to commit fraud that kills people.

As I have explained on many occasions, the US government is privatized. It is run by private interests whose representatives are found on the SEC, FDA, EPA, Federal Reserve, and all other regulatory agencies. As George Stigler made clear 60 years ago, the US regulatory agencies are captured by the industries they are supposed to regulate. The power of private interests also comes from the fact that private interests are the financers of political campaigns. Every elected official—House, Senate, President—and every state and local official knows he/she is in office because of the campaign contributions. This means that elected officials are responsible to their donors, not to the voters. The power of private interests was reinforced by the US Supreme Court decision that gave essentially unlimited ability to corporations to purchase government to serve their interests. This is the real picture of today’s United States.

Permalink A new war is being prepared for after the defeat in the face of Russia

Thierry Meyssan | The war in Ukraine is a trompe-l'œil [an illusion of reality]. Behind the appearances of the unity of NATO and its consolidation by new members, several big players run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. In reality, all those who are not blinded by their own propaganda know that their side is going to lose and is already planning other enemies on other battlefields. Washington is making the best of a bad situation and using Russian pressure to close ranks.

On the front of the stage, Nato assures that it has been strengthened by "Putin’s madness". Ukraine, powerfully armed by the West, is leading a counter-offensive and pushing back the "invader". At the international level, the sanctions are bearing fruit. Finland and Sweden, feeling threatened, decided to join the Atlantic Alliance. Soon the Russians will overthrow the "dictator" in the Kremlin. This magnificent narrative is contradicted by the facts: only about a third of Western weapons reach the front. But the Ukrainian army is exhausted. Almost everywhere it is retreating and a few exploits do not change the overall picture. Two-thirds of Western weapons, especially the heaviest ones, are already available on the black market in the Balkans, particularly in Kosovo and Albania, which have become the main places for trafficking in this area. Western sanctions pose a risk of famine, not in Russia, but in the rest of the world and particularly in Africa. Turkey and Croatia are opposed to the accession of new members to NATO. It is possible to convince them, but at the price of radical political changes which the West has always opposed. Even if Russia is wise enough to not celebrate its victory too loudly, as it did in Syria, it will be seen as the failure of the greatest military force in history, NATO. MORE
