With most of the Western hemisphere on holiday, another crisis appears to be developing on the India–Pakistan border known as the Line of Control (LoC). The incident started on Saturday, where at least four Indian soldiers were killed, in an exchange of fire with the Pakistani Army on the Line of Control (LoC) dividing Kashmir, ABC News reported.
The two sides reportedly exchanged heavy fire in the Keri sector of the Rajouri district, about 222 km southwest of Srinagar city, the summer capital of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian Express also said that the ceasefire violation by Pakistan was an attempt to “push in armed terrorists” into India before closure of the mountain passes this winter. Indian security forces have killed over 200 militants this year, including top commanders on the LoC. Meanwhile, hardly de-escalating the already tense situation, Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Nasser Khan Janjua warned the world of a possible “nuclear war” in South Asia.
A week ago, US Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Nelle told his Marines to be ready for a "big-a** fight" and mentioned Russia and North Korea as potential battlegrounds. While many of us saw the reasoning behind North Korea, few of us understood his reference to Russia; until today.
Trainloads of battle tanks are being unloaded inside Russia just a few miles from the border of Ukraine. It looks like the filthy obsession of U.S. neo-cons with "containing" Russia is about to blow up in all our faces.
Here's a Google Map to give you geographic perspective of where these tanks are bieng unloaded:
First, they surrounded Russia with new NATO bases, then they built missile defense systems in Poland and Romania to first-strike Russia's nuclear arsenal.
Then, under Obama, they spent $5 BILLION to foment revolution inside Ukraine, to overthrow its government and install one favorable to the West.
Next, they outright LIED and blamed Russia for interfering in the US election, and used that LIE as the basis for enacting economic sanctions against Russia worse than those enacted upon Japan in the 1940'2 (which drove Japan to attack us.)
Now, we see the results. . . Clearly Russia is now preparing for war.
The United States announced a $285 million cut in the United Nations' "bloated" budget for next year, negotiated by UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. A statement by the United States Mission to the United Nations reads:
Pleased with the cuts, Haley added "you can be sure we’ll continue to look at ways to increase the UN’s efficiency while protecting our interests."
The United States contributes approximately 22 percent of the U.N. budget - or around $3.3 billion, which President Trump asked the State Department to cut by over 50% in March.
Ambassador Haley was clear in her comments after the budget cut, telling the press "We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked," adding "This historic reduction in spending – in addition to many other moves toward a more efficient and accountable UN – is a big step in the right direction.
