The Trail of Tears

by Oui Sat Mar 2nd, 2024 at 09:16:04 AM EST

In my daily briefing for close friends, I made the comparison with American Wild West.   Bringing civilization ... job is never done 😡

American experience ...
Promise of the New World ...
Does sound like Promised Land ...
God of Abraham to spread and fill the earth ...
Puritans the Evangelists of today ...
Israel's Kahanists are terrorists, not religious people ...

Bushnell: US Commandos Participating In Gaza

by Oui Thu Feb 29th, 2024 at 01:17:28 PM EST

Whether complicit or directly involved is such a tiny step for Genocide Joe ... not so farfetched . ☹
He can always claim insanity at his old age.

Energy (and Other) Events Monthly - March 2024

by gmoke Wed Feb 28th, 2024 at 07:58:27 PM EST

These kinds of events below are happening all over the world every day and most of them, now, are webcast and archived, sometimes even with accurate transcripts. Would be good to have a place that helped people access them. This is a more global version of the local listings I did for about a decade (what I did and why I did it at http://hubeventsnotes.blogspot.com/2013/11/what-i-do-and-why-i-do-it.html) until September 2020 and earlier for a few years in the 1990s (https:/theworld.com~gmoke/AList.index.html).  
A more comprehensive global listing service could be developed if there were enough people interested in doing it, if it hasn't already been done.  
If anyone knows of such a global listing of open energy, climate, and other events is available, please put me in contact.
Thanks for reading,
Solar IS Civil Defense,

Know the Difference Between Peace and a Ceasefire

by Oui Mon Feb 26th, 2024 at 09:30:53 AM EST

So, there never was PEACE in Europe .... just a ceasefire post WWII.

As soon as the Bundesrepublik was whole again and the old divisions inside the Roman Empire rose from dormancy, the century old battles and grievances played a role inside the weapons toting NATO countries and the inevitable war with the Russian Federation took hold.

EU Opens Another War Memorial

by Oui Sun Feb 25th, 2024 at 10:44:54 PM EST

Damn you CM-VDL-JB ... you let the United States and NATO destroy you ... no valiant warriors, just dead bodies as a result to show for your decisions along the way. Russia is no more than a regional power - words by our former President Barack Obama. The Russian Federation will now build their military forces against an ever expanding and aggressive NATO. Brussels and Washington will not stop at the present frontier of Baltic states, Finland and western Ukraine.

Advice On Foreign Intervention and Lethal Aid

Council for advice Dutch Foreign Relations ...

Dutch support for Ukraine is and remains 'necessary and urgent'. An important advisory council informed the government of this today. "There is a lot at stake. It may well be that Europe will be on its own in 2024," the chairman of that council, Bert Koenders, told RTL News.

The Prospects for Sinn Féin

by Frank Schnittger Wed Feb 21st, 2024 at 10:21:58 PM EST

Former leader, Gerry Adams; Northern Ireland First Minister, Michelle O'Neill: and Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald.

There have been quite a few posts on Slugger O'Toole by able writers such as Michael Palmer, Ian Clarke, and Brian Walker about the prospects for political unionism and particularly the DUP now that the Assembly and Executive have been restored. Mick Fealty has also written a perceptive piece on the opportunity that being the official opposition provides for the SDLP. But no one seems to be writing about the prospects for Sinn Féin.

Not being a member or supporter, and not having many contacts within the party, I am not in a good position to fill that void. But it seems to me that even from an outsider's perspective the changed situation provides some opportunities and threats for the party, to which they bring particular strengths and weaknesses. Let us look at each of these in turn:

US Uses 3rd Veto to Block Ceasefire Resolution

by Oui Wed Feb 21st, 2024 at 06:15:48 AM EST

The leading western power has lost all legitimacy as a broker for peace in the Middle East or anywhere in the world. No moral setting, just the might of the gun as coercion to get its way. Europe has joined in this miserable adventure and too has lost its established credibility of a peacemaker. #WeAreNato #WeAreUnited

Biden: Russia Must Not Win

by Oui Tue Feb 20th, 2024 at 07:15:05 PM EST



27 nov 2014 -- Captain Oleksandr Olefirov, National Guard spokesperson:
"Mariupol is being defended by the personnel of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine - the Armed Forces of Ukraine, by the National Guard, border patrol personnel, as well as volunteer battalions."

From the sounds of it, the city seems like it's filled with Ukrainian troops. And indeed they are everywhere. On the land, on the sea and even underground:

Here the Ukrainian troops hide from the freezing temperatures outside. They sleep, eat and dry their clothes in this bunker. It is indeed very warm inside and the soldiers say they are happy with such accommodations, but complain there's no wi-fi.

Avdiivka: Hard Road to Liberation | 31 July 2019 |

Five years ago, the Ukrainian military was liberating Avdiivka, on the front line of Eastern Ukraine. After hours of fighting, the occupants had to retreat. As of today, even though Avdiivka is under the control of Ukraine, residential areas are still targeted by Russian-backed militants.

Jewish Donations to Euro Islamophobia

by Oui Tue Feb 20th, 2024 at 12:55:01 PM EST

Incitement to 🔥 HATE ⁉️

Covered aspects quite often especially talking about Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Dutch politician Geert Wilders. Created by military interventions in the Middle East, especially Iraq, Libya, Sahel region and Syria to overthrow Assad. A strong PR campaign and focused social media platforms covered and directed the war narrative of the Pentagon, Downing Street 10 and those in the coalition parroting the narrative within NATO allies. From earlier comments ...
