    This is what a civil war in the US would look like. IS and the Kurds are comprised of hodgepodge uniforms, obese guys, and no coherent plan. It's just a free for all. We see similar events in Ukraine. Apparently 2014 will be remembered as "The Rise of Angry Fat Men"

    They needed Saddam. It seems he was the only one who kept things under control over there. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Often complain East Jerusalem neighborhoods endowment, so that essential services, but the pictures obtained by Channel 2 Online, as they seem to attack the residents of the rescue forces – who went on to help them at their request. 

    Documentation at the foot of a Savannah neighborhood in east of the city, a man is holding a two Molotov cocktails when they are on, after he lit them. At first it seems an ambulance passes rather then a police cruiser Molotov cocktails thrown at her. These same Muslims who live in Europe that's what Europeans will soon ..

    Hypothetically those Iraqi soldiers could of been Syrian soldiers, as the Syrians have been fighting these terrorists/"rebels" for over 3 years now, the west was happy to support these "Jihadists" painting them as "moderate secular" freedom fighters, giving them a free pass to Syria, when in reality they were supporting a terrorists cause, Assad has done more for humanity then any leader in the world getting rid of these terrorists and should be supported, all minority's in Syria support Assad for he protects them, unlike the west who supports "rebels" aka terrorists who are slaughtering them.

US journalist Evan Gershkovich jailed in Russia | BBC News

Published

on



US journalist Evan Gershkovich has been found guilty of spying by a Russian court and sentenced to 16 years in a high-security prison, after a secretive trial labelled a “sham” by his employer, his family and the White House.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reporter was arrested by security services in March 2023 while working as a reporter in the city of Yekaterinburg, about 1,600km (1,000 miles) east of Moscow.

Russia accuses him of working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), accusations that Gershkovich, the WSJ and the US strongly deny.

He’s the first US journalist to be convicted for espionage in Russia since the Cold War ended more than 30 years ago.

UN top court says Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories is illegal | BBC News

Published

on



The UN’s top court has said Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories is against international law, in a landmark opinion.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said Israel should stop settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and end its “illegal” occupation of those areas as soon as possible.

The court’s advisory opinion is not legally binding but still carries significant political weight. It marks the first time the ICJ has delivered a position on the legality of the 57-year occupation.

The ICJ, based at The Hague in the Netherlands, has been examining the issue since the beginning of last year, at the request of the UN General Assembly.

Colombian naval officials monitoring a sunken Spanish ship laden with treasure have discovered two other historical shipwrecks nearby, President Iván Duque has announced.

The wreckage was located in 2015.

It has been described as the holy grail of shipwrecks, as the ship was carrying one of the largest amounts of valuables ever to have been lost at sea.
