Unspun News for the 17th April 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160417


WORLD
“Syrian Army Starts Battle for Aleppo, ISIS Cuts Turkey-Backed Rebels in Half“

“Two years ago, in April 2014, the Ukraine crisis escalated into a full-scale war between Russian-backed separatist forces and Ukrainian regular and volunteer forces in the Donbas. Over the past six months, the recent terror attacks in Paris and Brussels, together with the military campaign in Syria, have, for the most part, knocked Ukraine out of the headlines. Yet the war continues.“  I wonder how long before Russia intervenes?

“US defence secretary sends menacing message to China“


THIERRY MEYSSAN - “Contrary to what may appear to be the case, the «Panama Papers» campaign will not lead to restraining embezzlements of funds, nor to expanding liberties, but the exact opposite. The system is going to consolidate a bit more around the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, the United States and Israel, so that these and only these will control it.”

UNDER-REPORTED
ERIC ZUESSE - “Why Obama Prioritizes Ousting Assad Over Defeating Syria’s Jihadists (I)“  This has to be the ‘must read’ of the day.  Zuesse shines a light into dark places….
And it goes with this - 

The twisting of our minds …. Through the twisting of their words.  BE AWARE….

THIERRY MEYSSAN - “As they evolve. President Erdo─čan’s declarations stray more and more from universal values. While in the West, people are beginning to emit feeble criticisms of the so-called "authoritarian drift" of Ankara, Thierry Meyssan continues his narration of the establishment of a dictatorship based on the supremacy of Turkish ethnicity and "Islamic values".

“Israeli defense firm Rafael unveiled its latest anti-drone defensive system, which the company claims can track, target and destroy enemy unmanned aircraft within a two mile radius.“

“If it blows again, it could make Vesuvius look like a tea party.    Now, in a ground-breaking collaboration between the West and North Korea, vulcanologists are gaining new insights into Mount Paektu, on North Korea’s border with China, and whether it might blow its top any time soon.“

“A huge crack running 100m (328ft) opened up on a section of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast on  April 13, 2016.”

“A dump truck full of plastic is unloaded into the sea every minute, and experts say the situation is growing worse, with plastic debris expected to outnumber fish by 2050”  You think having a bonfire in an oil refinery would be daft?  Why?

US - Montana - “A record-setting spring storm dropped more than 6 inches of snow on Great Falls, (….)  a meteorologist (…) said the 6.9 inches of snow recorded in Great Falls broke the previous record of 3.6 inches set in 1894.”

Ireland - “Take out the winter woollies - frost, sleet and some snow forecast from tonight“

Sanity enters religion?  “The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has held its first legally recognised marriage, with the offbeat movement hailing the New Zealand ceremony as a world-first milestone toward acceptance.”

GENERAL/USEFUL
“The cave drawings in the Chauvet-Pont d’Arc, France may be taking back the crown for the oldest animal paintings on Earth, as an international team of scientists have found new evidence that they are 10,000 years older than previously believed.”

“The Vikings were the lords of the oceans. One of the main reasons behind Vikings’ success to reach distant lands lies in their remarkable longships. The Vikings’ ships were the greatest technical and artistic achievement of the European Dark Ages.”  These guys were SEAMEN!

BOOK

======================================
"The lowest standards of ethics of which a right-thinking man can possibly conceive is taught to the common soldier whose trade is to shoot his fellow men. In youth he may have learned the command, 'Thou shalt not kill,' but the ruler takes the boy just as he enters manhood and teaches him that his highest duty is to shoot a bullet through his neighbor's heart - and this, unmoved by passion or feeling or hatred, and without the least regard to right or wrong, but simply because his ruler gives the word." 

~~Clarence Darrow
