Unspun News for the 7th February 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160207


WORLD
MIKE WHITNEY - “A last ditch effort to stop a Russian-led military offensive in northern Syria ended in failure on Wednesday when the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and heavy Russian air cover broke a 40-month siege on the villages of Nubl and al-Zahra in northwestern Aleppo province.”

“The Russian military said on February 4 that it has «reasonable grounds» to suspect that Turkey is making intensive preparations for a military invasion of neighbouring Syria.”

“A retired Commodore of the Royal Australian Navy asks Washington “what freedoms are being threatened?” in the South China Sea.“  Shouldn’t the PM be doing that??  “The idea that the US may send military aircraft and ships to assert freedom of navigation around Chinese claimed islands in the South China Sea is seriously bad. It’s bad because it would involve an unreasonably assertive interpretation of the international law of the sea, and because it shows such little regard for the impact of such action on regional stability.“


Yemen - yet another trashed nation. “The present is hell for Yemen, and the future doesn't look any better. It's one more killing field in a world pock-marked with them, slaughtered on the altar of NATO-stan hegemony.”  See the pattern?  You need to…..   (and note the pic half way down on the left - “His name is Mike Hindmarsh, former head of the Australian SAS.“ )

“Publicly available military documents confirm that nuclear war is still on the drawing board  of the Pentagon.   Compared to the 1950s, however, today’s nuclear weapons are far more advanced. The delivery system is more precise. In addition to China and Russia, Iran, Syria and North Korea are targets for a first strike pre-emptive nuclear attack. Let us be under no illusions, the Pentagon’s plan to blow up the planet using advanced nuclear weapons is still on the books.”

UNDER-REPORTED
THE SAKER - “Week Seventeen of the Russian Intervention in Syria: does Erdogan want war with Russia?“  Sure looks like it….

US - “Army And Marine Chiefs: Women Should Be Required To Register For Draft Just Like Men“

ERIC ZUESSE - “NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced on February 2nd that he approves of US ‘Defense’ Secretary Ash Carter’s proposal to quadruple US armaments and troops in Europe, against ‘Russian aggression’.”  “So: the US regime is moving toward a nuclear confrontation against Russia, as a ‘defensive’ measure against ‘Russian aggression’.”

NUCLEAR
“A leaking natural gas well outside Los Angeles is spewing so much naturally-occurring Uranium and Radon, that “breathable” radiation levels have hit “lethal levels” according to a Nuclear Expert group.”

EARTH
M6.3 @ 17km, Taiwan.
“Magnitude 6.4 earthquake hits southern Taiwan, topples 17-storey building“
“At least 14 killed as multiple buildings collapse in 6.4 Taiwan quake“

“One of Japan's most active volcanos erupted spectacularly Friday evening with a fiery blast that sent lava rolling down its slope.”  Sakurajima, on Kyushu.

M5.5 @ 30km, Fiji region

ICELAND - “Most roads in the West Fjords are now closed after the heavy snowfall overnight. Snow ploughs will not be sent out until the weather improves.”

GREENLAND - “Study: Greenland ice sheet moving slower now than in the last 9000 years”

“Poor Distribution of Rainfall Leads to Floods and Droughts in Southern Africa”

PERU - “Peru’s typically snow-capped El Misti volcano, also known as Putina, is showing signs of awakening from a period of relative slumber that goes back to the 15th century.  (…) the volcano is now showing signs of rising magma.  El Misti is considered the most dangerous volcano in Peru, with about 1 million people around Arequipa under threat.“

UNCLASSIFIED
“What if Schools Taught Kindness?”  “Twice a week for 20 minutes, pre-kindergarten kids were introduced to stories and practices for paying attention, regulating their emotions, and cultivating kindness.”   It REALLY is this simple - once you remove the fear element….

ALTERNATIVE
“video footage of what looks like a cluster of UFOs flying in unison over Moscow has been declared authentic by experts.” (Also note ‘featured video’ - Hmmmmmmm?)

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“AR2494 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class flares”

HEALTH
JON RAPPOPORT - Report form Brazil research re Zika virus.  Looking more and more like a fear/profit beat-up…..

“The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible and which individuals are more at risk?”

“How anger changes the BRAIN: Aggression causes new nerve cells to grow which can trigger even more rage in the future”

GENERAL/USEFUL
This is probably the cleverest S-E photography I’ve ever seen!   High diving giraffes……..  5m30s video….  enjoy!!!!!

Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humour out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.”
