North Macedonia Is Being Used by NATO To Target Serbia & Russia

The North Macedonian House of Representatives this week unanimously approved for their country to accept the NATO Accession Protocol, taking the former Yugoslav Republic a step closer towards accession into NATO which is expected to be completed and finalized in the spring.

North Macedonia’s rapid accession into NATO is only possible because of the Prespa Agreement signed between Athens and Skopje in June 2018, bringing an end to the name dispute between the two countries that emerged in 1991 with the breakup of Yugoslavia.

‘Change course before it's too late’: Lavrov calls on Europe to reject false notion of ‘Russian threat’ in Munich speech

NATO’s eastward expansion and large-scale drills near Russian borders may lead to unpredictable consequences and it's time for Europe to change course, Russia's FM Sergey Lavrov told the Munich Security Conference.

Europe is where the "crisis of confidence" in international relations is felt the most, Foreign Minister Lavrov said as he took to the stage, explaining that "the structure of the Cold War rivalry is being recreated" on the continent.

"Escalating tensions, NATO's military infrastructure advancing to the East, exercises of unprecedented scope near the Russian borders, the pumping of defense budgets beyond measure – all this generates unpredictability," he added.

He then called on Europe to focus on security cooperation and helping to uphold international treaties, instead of following a policy of confrontation.

KABOOM! SWITZERLAND HALTS 5G ROLLOUT OVER HEALTH CONCERNS

It’s a gloomy day for Technocrats in Switzerland, which has imposed a nationwide ban on new 5G installation while demanding a thorough study on the health effects of millimeter waves on humans. Until produced, the ban will not be lifted. ? TN Editor

Switzerland, one of the world’s leaders in the rollout of 5G mobile technology, has placed an indefinite moratorium on the use of its new network because of health concerns.

The move comes as countries elsewhere around Europe race to upgrade their networks to 5G standards amid a furious rearguard diplomatic campaign by the US to stop them using Chinese technology provided by Huawei. Washington says the company, which is fundamental to most European networks’ upgrade plans, presents a grave security risk.

Italy’s Salvini faces 15 years in jail following Trump-style legal circus aimed at killing off his popularity

Having voted to lift his immunity from prosecution, the Italian Senate has cynically followed the US Democrats’ playbook by creating a legal sideshow to combat the growing popularity of the League’s Matteo Salvini.

Salvini’s 14-month term as Italy’s interior minister was a rollercoaster ride, as he ruled the national political agenda and built a massive power base – much to the chagrin of his former political allies, who are now exacting their revenge.

More than 200 tons of British rubbish is on its way back to the UK at taxpayers' expense after being found dumped in Polish warehouse

Locals sources claim the rubbish came from recycling bins in England so has demanded the UK Government pay for it to be returned to Britain.

The Environment Agency confirmed it was working with Polish authorities to investigate how it got there.

Beyond Ukraine: America's Coming (Losing) Battle For Eurasia

Authored by US Army Major Danny Sjursen (ret.) via AntiWar.com,

Academic historians reject anything smacking of inevitably. Instead they emphasize the contingency of events as manifested through the inherent agency of human beings and the countless decisions they make. On the merits, such scholars are basically correct. That said, there was something – if not inevitable – highly probable, almost (forgive me) deterministic about the two cataclysmic world wars of the 20th century. Both, in retrospect, were driven, in large part, by collective – particularly Western – nations’ adherence to a series of geopolitical philosophies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What bothers me about the US government, is its collective inability to think an issue through to its logical conclusion; and it doesn't seem to matter who is in power, Democrats or Republicans; this insanity is entrenched to the point of its being nearly pathological with the US government.

And that's when grave mistakes in geopolitical relationships can take place, leading to massive geopolitical tensions, and sometimes, horrific, senseless wars, in which this country has found itself enmeshed since 9/11

Do you realize that no 19 year old kid in this country has ever lived through a time when the US was not at war with something, or someone, far away, to affect regime change, and expropriate a foreign country's resources, to which the US has no moral right?!?

Please chew on that, intellectually, for a moment, please.

Trump 'Apoplectic' in Phone Call With Boris Johnson Over Huawei 5G Inclusion - Reports

A conversation between US President Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson reportedly became heated over the United Kingdom's decision to allow Chinese telecoms giant Huawei to have a role in the UK's new 5G network last Tuesday.

Anonymous sources in London and Washington described the call between the two anglosphere leaders as "apoplectic" to the Financial Times.

A NEW SPACE RACE? US, CHINA, RUSSIA, AND EUROPE ALL PLAN FOR MOON BASES

One year ago in January, a Chinese robot landed on the dark side of the moon. Since then, the Chang’e 4 probe and the Yutu-2 rover it carried onboard have been busy photographing and scanning minerals, growing yeast, hatching fruit-fly eggs, and cultivating cotton, potato, and rapeseeds in the moon’s low gravity, according to the Daily Beast.

Now, China’s National Space Administration is quietly planning to launch yet another probe into space. Chang’e 5 could blast off as early as this year.

Last year, TMU reported that the Yutu-2 rover came across a strange “gel-like” substance which the Chinese began to study extensively.

The Chinese space agency has continued to work on its Tiangong 3 space station and is planning on testing a new manned spacecraft for deep-space missions. That permanent station will reach orbit aboard the country’s new Long March 5B rocket in the first half of 2020, AFP reported. The mission will not be associated with the International Space Station.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The very clearly articulated desire of the US government to "weaponize space", concerns me deeply.

Space exploration should be a place in which all countries around the world should be cooperating, and not competing; humankind, as a species, is never better than when it works together to share information, and insights, to give us a better understanding of where we stand, in our little blue island of Light, relative to the rest of the universe.

‘No EU slavery!’ Germans call for DEXIT a week after hailing Brexit success

GERMANS are demanding their own Brexit - dubbed ‘Dexit' - as Deutschland politicians are battling tirelessly to follow Britain's lead to quit the EU as a matter of urgency.

Berlin’s right-wing populist AfD party leader Björn Höcke and MEP Beatrix von Storch are in the process of selling Dexit to the rest of the party in order to use it as the main feature of their manifesto in the next election. Mr Höcke said: “The majority of the German people also want to get out of EU slavery.” He made a speech as he watched the celebrations in London at 11pm on Brexit Day.

US Army Expanding Stockpiles of Combat Equipment in Europe, Pacific

American Army prepositioned stocks (APS) in the Pacific will receive an upgrade following an upcoming US-led, multinational exercise with NATO allies, according to the head of US Army Materiel Command (AMC).

Gen. Gustave "Gus" Perna, the commanding general of AMC, revealed to attendees of a Tuesday Defense Writers Group event in Washington, DC, that APS will be expanded in the Pacific after DEFENDER-Europe 2020.

"As of right now, I am actually building an additional set that I have been directed to build" for the European theater, Perna said on February 4, as reported by Military.com. "We are already working on ways to expand APS out in the Pacific.”

FLASHBACK: The New Mediterranean Oil and Gas Bonanza

The discovery in late 2010 of the huge natural gas bonanza off Israel’s Mediterranean shores triggered other neighboring countries to look more closely at their own waters. The results revealed that the entire eastern Mediterranean is swimming in huge untapped oil and gas reserves. That discovery is having enormous political, geopolitical as well as economic consequences. It well may have potential military consequences too.

Preliminary exploration has confirmed similarly impressive reserves of gas and oil in the waters off Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and potentially, Syria.

Emmanuel Macron slams Brexit and says the Leave campaign was based on 'lies, exaggerations and simplifications' but admits it is an 'historic alarm signal' for EU

Emmanuel Macron has fired a parting shot at Leavers whose 'lies, exaggerations and simplifications' he claims muddied the 2016 Brexit campaign.

As the UK prepares to formally leave the bloc's institutions at 11pm tonight, the French President mourned the 'sad day'.

He said Britain's historic divorce should send alarm bells ringing around Brussels, which he conceded had to evolve to stop more countries peeling away.

The country is already in the top ten in the world in terms of total military spending, with NATO alliance spending topping $1 trillion.

75 years ago, Audie Murphy earned his Medal of Honor with nothing but a burning tank destroyer's .50 cal and insane bravery

On January 26, 1945, the most decorated U.S. service member of World War II earned his legacy in a fiery fashion.

Audie Murphy — then a second lieutenant commanding Company B of the 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division — found himself surrounded by six German tanks and wave after wave of enemy infantry while fighting in Holtzwihr, France. Rather than retreat with his men, Murphy made a gutsy decision: He ordered his soldiers withdraw to the cover of nearby forest and set up their artillery while he remained at his forward command post to direct their fire.

Article 13: UK will not implement EU copyright law

Universities and Science Minister Chris Skidmore has said that the UK will not implement the EU Copyright Directive after the country leaves the EU.

Several companies have criticised the law, which would hold them accountable for not removing copyrighted content uploaded by users, if it is passed.

EU member states have until 7 June 2021 to implement the new reforms, but the UK will have left the EU by then.

The UK was among 19 nations that initially supported the law.

That was in its final European Council vote in April 2019.

A Swedish politician says that the government has 'lost control' after new figures reveal a 60% rise in bombings in 2019 over the previous year, amid what Reuters reports as "a surge in drug-linked gang-violence."

"Unfortunately, this government has lost control of what is happening in Sweden. Now in the morning, we woke up again to news of bombs and explosions, this time in Stockholm’s inner city and in central Uppsala," wrote Moderate Party leader Ulf Kristersson in a recent Op-Ed for Aftonbladet.

Approximately 257 bomb attacks were reported to police last year, up from 162 in 2018, according to the country's National Council for Crime Prevention. No details were given as to the most frequent type of explosive, however Swedish media has reported the heavy use of bombs crafted from vacuum flasks packed with explosive material, according to Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to feel very sorry for the Swedish people, who are slowly losing their way of life to this kind of crime, and the degree to which it is exploding, courtesy of unvetted and indiscriminate immigration, which their politicians have embraced with such fervor.

I would suggest that all Swedish politicians who supported this, are in for miserable surprises, come the next general election.

Turkey Demands Greece "Demilitarize" 16 Aegean Islands Amid Gas Drilling Dispute

At a moment tensions are soaring over Turkey's expansive East Mediterranean claims, and after starting early last summer it began sending oil and gas exploration and drilling ships off Cyprus' coast, Ankara is demanding that Greece “demilitarize” its islands in the Aegean Sea, reports Bloomberg.

The demand from Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, who formally requested Greece move to withdraw armed forces and weaponry from 16 Aegean islands near Turkey on Wednesday, is rich given it's Turkey that's been provocatively sending warships and military jets to accompany illegal gas drilling in the area, something lately condemned by the EU.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get very ugly, very quickly; I would like to hope that some of the adults in the room in NATO, to which both countries belong, can have a quiet conversation with Greek and Turkish officials about not resorting to a military "brass knuckles" approach in resolving this issue.

Thousands of Greek protesters demand asylum seekers are removed from their islands, as locals claim: 'You can't walk alone after dark, people get stabbed'

The islands of Lesbos, Samos and Chios staged a general strike, shutting down shops and public services and rallying in central squares, many protesters waving Greek flags.

Asylum-seekers should be shared out across Greece and the rest of Europe, 72-year-old Lesbos pensioner Efstratios Peppas said. 'You can't walk alone outside after dark, people get stabbed,' he added.

The main slogan chanted at demonstrations was: 'We want our islands back, we want our lives back.'

President Trump DID threaten Britain, France and Germany with 25% tariff on car exports if they did not wage diplomatic war with Iran over broken nuclear deal, German defense minister claims

By Jack Elsom For Mailonline

Donald Trump tried to strong-arm Britain and its European allies into waging diplomatic war with Iran by threatening to impose 25 per cent tariffs on their lucrative car exports, the German defense minister revealed yesterday.

The US President was piling pressure on Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron to formally accuse Tehran of violating the 2015 nuclear deal.

At a press conference in London yesterday, Germany's Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer confirmed reports of such economic threats and said: 'This expression or threat, as you will, does exist.'

A 25 per cent tax on cars would particularly hurt Germany, which exports around £23billion worth of vehicles across the Atlantic each year.

The Commission hopes to examine the technology during these years with “a sound methodology for assessing the impacts of this technology and possible risk management measures could be identified and developed,” the EC’s 18-page white paper on facial recognition writes...

Actually, the US became a rogue state four years before my birth in 1949 when, in 1945, Washington decided to bomb two militarily insignificant cities in Japan with its new super weapon, the atomic bomb, instantly incinerating several hundred thousand Japanese civilians, including many, many children, and condemning at least that many more to slow agonizing deaths from resulting cancers and birth defects.

An Empire Self-Destructs

Empires are built through the creation or acquisition of wealth. The Roman Empire came about through the productivity of its people and its subsequent acquisition of wealth from those that it invaded. The Spanish Empire began with productivity and expanded through the use of its large armada of ships, looting the New World of its gold. The British Empire began through localized productivity and grew through its creation of colonies worldwide—colonies that it exploited, bringing the wealth back to England to make it the wealthiest country in the world.

British Army fury as UN imposes gender quotas - 'It should be about who's best for role!'

At least 250 soldiers are expected to join the UN peacekeeping force helping France to contain the deadly jihadi threat in the Sahel region of Africa.

Drawn from the Light Dragoons and 2nd Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment, the contingent currently includes six female soldiers, attached to medical, logistical and military police sections.

But a new UN directive for peacekeeping operations lays down quotas for the number of female soldiers deployed.

And last night senior officers expressed their frustration as they face having to include at least another 12 female soldiers for next year’s deployment while planning for what is anticipated to be a ”highly kinetic” operation - a euphemism for active warfare.

US strategy and what the gas pipeline war is costing us

Although they were locked in a convoluted struggle concerning the impeachment of President Trump, Republicans and Democrats in the Senate laid down their arms in order to vote, in quasi-unanimity, for the imposition of heavy sanctions on the companies participating in the construction of North Stream 2, the doubling of the gas pipeline which delivers Russian gas to Germany across the Baltic Sea. The main victims were the European companies which had helped finance the 11 billion dollar project with the Russian company Gazprom. The project is now 80 % finished. The Austrian company Omy, British/Dutch Royal Dutch Shell, French Engie, German companies Uniper and Wintershall, Italian Saipem and Swiss Allseas are also taking part in the laying of the pipeline.

2019: A disastrous year for Trump’s foreign policy

Twenty-nineteen could best be described as a year when Donald Trump’s foreign policy unraveled on so many fronts. It became ever more erratic, one-sided and personalized, changing with the US president’s mood swings. The crisis, as many would call it, has been a long time in the making, and the implications will surely cast a long shadow over the new decade.

Trump, a self-proclaimed deal maker, is floundering as much internationally as he is domestically. The US, on his watch, arguably has less leverage with its allies than it has had at any time in modern history. Trump’s foreign policies—from the Middle East and North Korea to Venezuela— have largely failed

Does Mr. Trump really not grasp that his sanctions left and right – and now on the Russian-German gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 – is committing economic suicide, not for himself, of course, but for the United States? He attempts to punish not only Russia, but all the corporations, construction companies, Russian, German and from everywhere, which collaborated and are still working on the final stretch of the1,250 km pipeline.
