The nuclear deal between the West and Iran gives Tehran up to three months to hide illicit nuclear activity in hitherto undeclared locations, and not 24 days as claimed by the accord’s backers, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday.
If Iran honors the agreement, it will be able to build numerous nuclear weapons with the blessing of the international community, he lamented during a briefing for Israeli diplomatic correspondents in his Jerusalem office.
But, Netanyahu said, if no agreement has been reached after that time elapses, the deal says that the complaint is to go to another committee trying to bridge the dispute, which will deal with the issue for another 30 days. If Iran still refuses to let inspectors into the site and the United Nations Security Council is involved, it will take another 30 days before any action is taken, the prime minister said.
“It could take a total of three months,” Netanyahu said.
The United States has imposed further sanctions against Russia over the events in eastern Ukraine and Crimea. Eleven more people and 15 more companies have been put on the sanctions list.
Among the newly included firms are affiliate companies of Russian oil giant Rosneft, as well as several organizations linked to one of the country’s major banks - Vnesheconombank.
Sanctions were also imposed against five Crimean commercial ports located in the towns of Sevastopol, Feodoisa, Kerch, Evpatoria and Yalta, as well as the Kerch ferry service.
US sanctions on Russia are a hostile act and there is nothing “routine” about it, a political analyst from the anti-war ANSWER Coalition, Richard Becker, told RT.
“The sanctions are linked to the very aggressive policy that the United States government has been carrying out in Ukraine and against the government of Russia. [It] represents another form of that aggressive behavior that the United States has imposed on so many countries,” Becker said. “It is not ‘routine.’ It is an action of hostility, it is an action of economic warfare.”
“The US does not routinely impose sanctions on other countries which are in gross violation of international law and human rights, like Saudi Arabia or Jordan, which are its allies,” the pro-peace activist added.
Thursday morning, the Center for Medical Progress released their latest undercover Planned Parenthood video, which features Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains VP & Medical Director Savita Ginde in a series of unbelievable statements. As the CMP puts it, she is caught on tape "negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences."
There are many example of horrifying exchanges between the actors posing as buyers and the "doctor" making the sales pitch, but perhaps the most unbelievable was the casual discussion of "intact fetuses."
BUYER: Alright, so, intact?
PP: Intact, so we do basically D&Es. Intact is probably less than 10%.
BUYER: Less than 10%.
PP: Sometimes, you know, if we get, if someone delivers before we are able to see them for a procedure then we are intact.
Someone delivers? It's hard to even consider the implication of that statement. An admission that they sell from babies that were born, possibly alive.
The video includes another very disturbing and graphic portion where the remains of an aborted baby are being examined and identified. At one point, after identifying a few parts, Dr. Ginde explains to the buyers "that's a baby."
That's a baby.
What else is there to add to the doctor's own assessment? The full weight of the words the Planned Parenthood staff and doctors use in this video can only be understood by listening to the entire thing. Be warned, it is extremely disturbing and graphic. Some readers may wish to look away from the screen and just listen to the conversation.
Make special note of the awareness of the laws about "selling fetal parts across states" and the discussion on how to avoid getting busted for it.
Below is the press release that accompanies the video.
DENVER, July 30--New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.
In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Ginde at the abortion-clinic headquarters of PPRM in Denver to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs. When the actors request intact fetal specimens, Ginde reveals that in PPRM’s abortion practice, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.”
“We’d have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they don’t crush” fetal organs during 2nd trimester abortions, says Ginde, brainstorming ways to ensure the abortion doctors at PPRM provide usable fetal organs.
When the buyers ask Ginde if “compensation could be specific to the specimen?” Ginde agrees, “Okay.” Later on in the abortion clinic’s pathological laboratory, standing over an aborted fetus, Ginde responds to the buyer’s suggestion of paying per body part harvested, rather than a standard flat fee for the entire case: “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
Russia and China are building hypersonic missiles and it's 'complicating' things for the US - Yahoo Finance
China and Russia are developing maneuvering high-speed strike vehicles that pose new threats to the United States, U.S. Strategic Command leaders said Wednesday.
Adm. Cecil D. Haney, Strategic Command’s (Stratcom) senior leader, said during remarks at a nuclear deterrence conference that despite arms control efforts, hypersonic weapons are among several threatening strategic trends emerging in the world.
The advanced weapons capabilities are being proliferated by U.S. adversaries and “are becoming increasingly mobile, hardened, and underground, which is further compounded by a lack of transparency,” the four-star admiral said.
Hypersonic weapons are ultra-high speed weapons launched atop missiles that accelerate to speeds of between Mach 5 and Mach 10—five and ten times the speed of sound. The vehicles fly along the edge of space and can glide and maneuver to targets.
Hypersonic weapons are being developed by China and Russia to defeat U.S. strategic missile defenses that currently are designed to counter non-maneuvering ballistic missile warheads that travel in more predictable flight paths that are tracked by sensors and can be hit by missile interceptors.
Russian officials have said their hypersonic arms development is aimed to penetrate U.S. missile defenses.
Hypersonic weapons technology “certainly offers a number of advantages to a state,” Kowalski said.
“It offers a number of different ways to overcome defenses, whether those are conventional, or if someone would decide to use a nuclear warhead, I think gives it an even more complicated dimension,” Kowalski added.
