PMQs  police cuts and increase in violent crimes – drug decriminalisation – decimation of youth services;  Young see violence as entertainment: What might be the brutalising effects – on adults and on children – of the increase in explicit and graphically violent crime dramas and novels? It seems that as the acts of violence on our streets increase, so the public appetite for ever more violent “entertainment” increases – gang culture, young have no prospects,  QE, Universal Income;  PMQs Universal Credit – food banks use up nearly 50% in Stoke on Trent; stock market crash coming;  Bristol carbon neutral by 2050 story: Bristol has declared a “climate emergency”, with the council unanimously backing a commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030 in an effort to avoid catastrophic climate breakdown. The motion put forward by Green party councillor Carla Denyer and passed on Tuesday means the city has the most ambitious emissions targets of the UK’s core cities group – with radical policy implications in the coming years. The Nazi in the BRITISH Army:Outstanding’ corporal who served in Afghanistan is jailed for preparing a ‘race war’ and recruiting for neo-Nazi National Action – as seven others are convicted for belonging to the banned terror group. Corporal Mikko Vehvilainen, 34, believed a ‘race war’ was coming to the UK. The veteran – described as ‘outstanding’ – attempted to recruit others for terror.

Second hour: Investigative reports: Israel threatening war with Iran: Trump doomed to failure: Trump’s economic war on Iran is doomed to failure says former British ambassador to Tehran Richard Dalton. With demand for Iranian oil holding firm and no international support for sanctions, the US’s harsh approach has no future. The US has declared economic war on Iran: after having pulled out of the UN security council-endorsed nuclear deal in May, the Trump administration is now unilaterally combating the right of the rest of the world to engage in legal trade with the Islamic Republic. Why are Israel and US pursuing this policy? Israel Katz, Intelligence and Transport Minister – speaking in May; Man who gave away US nuclear secrets to Israel and Soviet Union Jonathan Pollard – why is he a hero in Israel? Russia’s 100 Years of the GRU on BBC World Service – Mark Galeotti from Prague Institute for International Affairs who also works for NATO although the BBC don’t tell us this – discusses how Russia has much more counter intelligence than we do – but do Russia really spend 40% of public spending on the military as Mark Galeotti says? No, #FakeNews it’s actually around $42 billion out of a total of $247 billion public spending which is less than 20%, half what Mark Galeotti said it was – and its falling by 20% this year. Russian military spending fell by a fifth last year, its first decline in nearly two decades, with tighter purse-strings likely to affect Moscow’s military activity ahead, a report by defence think-tank SIPRI showed on Wednesday$72 billion versus $690 billion: Russia’s military spending is around 12% of the US military budget. BBC have the cheek to try and help us get #BeyondFakeNews (not theirs of course but on social media) why could it be that people don’t trust the BBC, shock horror? Could it be because they are a propaganda station and lie all the time, particularly when trying to start illegal wars like WMD in Iraq and chemical weapons in Syria? This segment is presented by a ‘Demon from Merry Hell’ – otherwise known as Dan Damon and Marie Helly – BBC get facts wrong and lie too but have much much bigger reach! Drone Wars – armed autonomous drones in UKGame Theory into modern warfare with Super Computers: Game theory is one of the possible ways to study information warfare with mathematical models. This paper presents four example games which illustrate the different requirements for an effective playing strategy in information warfare. These games study, how a bold playing strategy can lead to domination, how a mixed playing strategy can reduce domination, how it can be useful to play a dominating strategy only part of the time, and how excessive domination can lead to rebels where all playing parties lose. This paper also describes meta-strategies whose goal is to modify the perceived costs and conditions of a game. This kind of perception management is closely related to the Observe-Orient-Decide-Act (OODA) loop. Germany calling for EU army. Ukraine – EU condemning elections. Mystery Hijacking of all Google traffic – through China and RussiaOkay Google, why was your web traffic hijacked and routed through China, Russia today? BGP hijacking committed ‘grand theft internet’ That means folks in Texas, California, Ohio, and so on, firing up their browsers and software to connect to Google and its services were instead meandering through systems in Russia and China, and not reaching servers belonging to the Silicon Valley giant. Netizens outside of America may also have been affected.Lion Air into sea – aircraft can be hacked; MH370 Malaysian Airways hacked to stop Freescale military radar technology team getting to China?

First hour: news review with LibDem leader and councillor for Cotham, Anthony Negus: Plans to make Bristol City Council ‘more business-like’. The authority is looking to become more “commercially minded” Council tzars are looking at ideas to make public services in Bristol function more like a business. Stripping back bureaucracy and finding new ways for Bristol City Council to make money are top of the agenda as the authority looks to become more “commercially minded”. It comes as the authority weathers its eighth year of central government cuts, which has seen councils across the country lose up to half their budgets. The squeeze has meant a big reduction in spending – and has put senior managers on the hunt for ways other than raising council tax to balance the books. Piecemeal ideas, such as putting advertising in Bristol parks , will be brought under one banner with the help of Penny Fell, who as of August is the council’s new director of commercialisationThe Severn Estuary in Britain has the second highest tidal range in the world and tidal power in the Severn could produce a total of about 7% of the country’s energy needs. The lecture will consider the viability of tidal stream and tidal range. The most successful tidal range scheme currently operating is the La Rance scheme in Brittany, France, which has operated for 50 years and now produces the cheapest electricity in Europe. Experience from that will be described. Tidal range schemes in the Severn Estuary can be either barrages or lagoons and the main schemes will be identified. These will include the pathfinder Swansea Bay lagoon and an updated Severn barrage. Each scheme would have different impacts on the environment and most would involve the Habitats and Birds Directives. In recent years, turbine development has meant there would be less change in basin water level and hence less impact on the environment. BBC World Service, The Compass, After the Crash 2/5: Austerity and ConsequencesDid Governments’ handling of the 2008 financial crisis – when some chose to implement austerity and some didn’t – make things better or worse? Ian Goldin, professor of Globalisation and Development at Oxford University, visits Illinois in the US to find out how people were affected by the collapse in the housing market. He also talks to Christine Lagarde – the head of the International Monetary Fund – about how austerity measures were implemented in Europe. And Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the former Minister of Finance in Nigeria, talks about how the crisis was felt in Africa. Presenter: Ian Goldin. Producer: Ben CarterMPs laugh at Theresa May’s claim that ‘austerity is ending’ during PMQs clash with Corbyn. Theresa May’s claim that “austerity is ending” was met with laughter by MPs as the prime minister clashed with Jeremy Corbyn at Prime Ministers Questions. Condemning what he called a “broken promise Budget”, the Labour leader demanded to know why the government had not pledged to end the benefit freeze. That prompted confusion over Labour’s own policy on the issue after a spokesman for Mr Corbyn said the party would not necessarily raise benefits in line with inflation, despite John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, having said it wouldSupport grows for girl, 9, who begged homeless charity for job. A homeless charity has raised over £22,000 after speaking out about a 9-year-old who begged them for work to buy Christmas presents to her siblings. Metro.co.uk reported yesterday about the little girl who told CEO of Humanity Torbay Ellie Waugh that she needed a job because her mother had died and her father had no money. The charity, which operates food bank and offers support for the vulnerable has managed to raise more than £22,800, after Ellie decided to hit out at Universal Credit and ‘tell the truth’ about how many people are being forced to sleep roughItaly says budget will include basic income, lower retirementROME (Reuters) – Economy Minister Giovanni Tria said on Wednesday Italy’s 2019 budget would include a basic income for the poor and allow people to retire earlier, meeting demands from the ruling coalition parties. Tria told a retail association conference the so-called “citizens’ income” would help manage the social consequences of technological change, and said allowing people to retire earlier would give firms a younger, more skilled workforce. The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, which governs with the right-wing League, threatened on Tuesday not to vote for the budget unless it included the citizens’ income and a lower retirement age, along with other policiesWhy the £2 ‘flat fare’ on Bristol’s buses might cost you £2.07 A raft of changes to the bus fares across Bristol come into force on Sunday, with Monday the first day when commuters and school children experience the new fare set-up. The price of a single ticket is being unified to what First Bus and Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees said was a ‘flat fare’ no matter how far you travel in Bristol on the bus. Before the change on Monday, people were paying £1.50 for every single journey under three miles on the First Bus phone app, or £2.50 for every single journey over three miles. ‘Labour’ Mayor Marvin Rees state of the city address 2018 on transport No administration for years, has taken transport seriously. There have been efforts to improve cycling and walking but it remains difficult to travel from A to B. Communities in areas such as Hartcliffe, Avonmouth and Hillfields remain disconnected. Congestion adversely impacts on the city‘s economy and air quality. We will not repeat the errors of recent years in pretending that cars will disappear if we make life difficult for car drivers, nor will we ignore the economic impact when we do transport planning. But we will have an impact on congestion and on people movement by presenting real choice. We must generate mass transit options that are better, cheaper and easier than car travel. Thanks to the efforts of my cabinet lead , Mhairi Threlfall, we have our Bristol Transport Strategy out to consultation, outlining our vision to 2036. We have seen the order of the biggest single biogas bus order in the UK, and we are leading the way on smart ticketing and contactless payments. 7 out of 10 passengers now board the bus using these payment methods. The key outcomes of the Congestion Task Group are being implemented, including the creation of a Transport Board that will bring together key city transport partners, to work more closely with the city council for future planning. But most importantly, we have a flightpath for a phased growth of public transport. The first strand of that growth will be looking at a new deal for bus use. I can announce tonight that we are in the process of working towards a Heads of an Agreement that sets out a joint relationship based on long term and sustained public and private investment in the bus system. Working with our partners in the West of England, the aim of the agreement will be to double bus usage to 20% of all journeys through: Bristol congestion charge will ‘hit the poorest the hardest’ The Conservative group say council claims about the benefits of the charge are ‘inaccurate and disingenuous’ Any potential congestion charge or parking levy will “hit the poorest people in Bristol the hardest”, the Conservatives claim. Leader of the Bristol Tory group, Mark Weston, says any move to charge drivers to enter the city would “unfairly tax” low income families and previously making driving a luxury of the well off. His comments come after Bristol City Council launched its transport strategy consultation on Monday (September 24). The document lays out the city’s transport aims over the next 20 years and looks at how it may fund new projects. High on the list is Bristol Mayor, Marvin Rees’ ambitious hope of building an underground metro-rail network for the city.  Work-related stress jumps by a quarter to reach ‘epidemic’ levels Experts criticise ‘half-hearted’ attempts to tackle a crisis caused by workload and management style – Nearly 85 per cent of charity workers are looking for a new job – Survey: Majority Of Workers Comfortable Looking For New Job While EmployedHealth Secretary orders probe into autistic youngsters locked in NHS ‘hell holes’ across the UK… as mother reveals her son is ‘so drugged he can hardly move’ in care unitMatt Hancock has ordered an urgent investigation into children being locked up. Children as young as 13 are said to be being incarcerated for years in NHS units. Barbaric treatment includes patients being kept in isolation in padded cells. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has ordered an urgent investigation into why youngsters are being locked up like criminals because they have autism or learning difficulties, just days after The Mail on Sunday revealed their appalling plight. Mr Hancock was ‘deeply shocked’ by this newspaper’s account last week of children as young as 13 being incarcerated, sometimes for years, in NHS-funded assessment and treatment units, known as ATUs. Our exposé, based on numerous detailed interviews with distraught individuals and families, found evidence of routine abuse of children and young people kept in the secretive facilitiesOn Saturday 10 November Veterans For Peace (VFP) UK will host a public conference at Friends House, Euston. In the morning there will be a presentation from German veterans Florian Pfaff and Jurgen Rose. In the afternoon there will be a presentation from US veterans Barry Ladendorf and Dennis Stourt on their experiences during the Vietnam War. On Sunday 11 November VFP UK and veterans from around the world will walk to The Cenotaph in Whitehall under the banner Never Again to carry out a solemn ceremony of remembrance. Veterans For Peace UK is a politically independent ex-services organisation of men and women who have served in conflicts from WW2 through to Afghanistan. As a result of our collective experience we firmly believe that “War is not the solution to the problems we face in the 21st Century”. Our annual gathering attracts veterans from around the world who are committed to serving the cause of world peace.

Second hour: Investigative reports: US War on Terror Kills Nearly 500,000 in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan A study released Thursday says the U.S.-led war on terrorism has killed about 507,000 people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan during its 17 years and is showing a 22 percent increase in deaths in the past two years. The death toll includes U.S. and allied troops, civilians in the war zones, local military and police forces, as well as militants, who have died from war violence, according to the report by Brown University’s Costs of War Project. The report said the number of indirect deaths was several times larger than deaths caused by direct war violence, bringing the total death count to well over 1 million people. Fatalities in Afghanistan, as of October 2018, stood at about 147,000 people, including Afghan security forces, civilians and opposition fighters. The figure also included the deaths of 6,334 American soldiers and contractors, as well as more than 1,100 allied troopsMake GRU GRU again, Putin says as intelligence agency turns 100The Russian president suggested returning the historic name to the military intelligence agency, which is accused in the West of staging coups, tilting US elections and using chemical weapons to get rid of double agents. On Friday, Russian military intelligence officers were celebrating their professional holiday. This year is a big date for the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The organization is best known by its Soviet-times name the GRU (Maine Intelligence Directorate), even though the agency has changed its name to simply GU years agoIran will break US sanctions: President Rouhani TEHRAN. – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says Iran will break the sanctions imposed by the United States on Tehran as well as on countries that do business with it, shortly after a round of anti-Iran sanctions by America took effect. Speaking at a meeting with the directors and deputies of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Finance on Monday, President Rouhani said, “We should break the sanctions very well, and we will do that.” “With the help of the people, and the unity that exists in our society, we have to make the Americans understand that they must not use the language of force, pressure, and threats to speak to the great Iranian nation. They must be punished once and for all,” the Iranian president said. The meeting and remarks came shortly after a new round of US sanctions took effect. The new bans target, among other things, Iran’s oil sales and Central Bank. More Iranian individuals have also been targeted by the US Department of the Treasury. The US measures also include so-called secondary sanctions – punitive measures against third countries doing business with Iran. US President Donald Trump introduced a first round of “primary” and “secondary” sanctions against Iran and its trade partners in August. In May, he unilaterally pulled the US out of a multilateral deal with Iran. Two months later, footage reportedly came outin which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed he had personally convinced Trump to withdraw from the Iran dealTop Likud minister, back from Oman: Israel, Gulf must liaise on security, agriculture. Israel Katz says Jewish state ‘has a lot to offer’ its Arab neighbors in multiple fields. A top minister who visited Oman this week has called for increased cooperation between Israel and Gulf states on developmental issues, security, medicine and more. Intelligence and Transportation Minister Israel Katz told Reuters Thursday night following his visit: “In my view cooperation between Israel and the Gulf states can and should be expanded … Israel also has a lot to offer when it comes to water desalination and irrigation, agriculture and medicine.” He also said the nations should work together on aviation security. Russia, Turkey, France and Germany call for lasting ceasefire in Syria. World leaders issue joint statement from summit on war-torn country: The leaders of Russia, Turkey, France and Germany have called for a lasting ceasefire in Syria following violence in last remaining major rebel stronghold. A constitutional committee should meet by the end of the year, the leaders of the four countries, who gathered for a summit in Istanbul, said. Ankara, which supports the rebels seeking to overthrow president Bashar al-Assad, and Moscow, Assad’s key foreign ally, recently brokered a deal to create a demilitarised zone in Syria’s Idlib region. French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters that the international community would be watching to make sure that Russia and Turkey respect the agreement they have negotiated. Speaking after the four-way summit on Saturday, he said: “We will all be extremely vigilant to ensure that these commitments are met and that the ceasefire is stable and sustainable. “We are counting on Russia to exert a very clear pressure on the (Syrian) regime which very clearly owes it its survival.” ‘EU lied for 50 YEARS’ Farage attacks Macron’s plans to build a ‘TRUE European army’ NIGEL Farage accused the European Union of “lying to us for 50 years” after French President Emmanuel Macron called for a “real European army” to reduce Europe’s dependence on the United States for defence. Nigel Farage warned a European army would be “very dangerous” and “deeply insulting” to the United States. Speaking on his LBC radio show, Mr Farage blasted: “A true European army says Emmanuel Macron, backing up comments from Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who said not too long ago, deference to NATO can no longer be used as a convenient alibi to argue against greater European efforts. “Folks, they’re building a European army, they’re not messing aboutPresident Macron sparks outrage by calling infamous French Nazi collaborator Philippe Petain a ‘great soldier’ during WWI. Philippe Petain assissted in the Holocaust and deported thousands of Jews . Macron said that Marshal Petain made some bad choice in the Second World War. He said ‘I don’t hide any page of history’ as he praised Petain’s greatness in WWI. The Lion of Verdun began working with Nazis against Britain during WWII. Israeli Defense Company Wins Contract to Monitor Europe’s Coasts. The Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems Ltd has won a contract worth up to $68 million to monitor much of Europe’s coastline. Elbit Systems, an Israeli tech firm which specialises in defence, security and commercial systems, said today that the framework contract consists of the provision of maritime unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) in order to help monitor extensive coastlines and vast areas of sea to identify any potential hazards and suspicious activities. The company will provide European Union countries with maritime unmanned aircraft system patrol services. Israeli Defense Contractor Elbit Announces Contract with EU Maritime Safety Agency. The company will provide European Union countries with maritime unmanned aircraft system patrol services. In recent months, numerous Israeli companies and contractors have been winning contracts in various industries worldwide, ranging from defense to surveillance and technological advancement. David Livingstone: Because the focus of much conspiracy research has been dirverted to the Federal Reserve, UFOs, “the Jews” and even the Jesuits, it has failed to apprehend the most important development of occultism in modern times and the source of transhumanism. Until recently, occultism was dominated by societies like the Golden Dawn, or Aleister Crowley’s OTO. While the influences of these societies are still central, they have proliferated in entirely new ways. While once associated with solemn candlelit rituals and dark incantations performed by robed mystics, occultism has a new face, and it’s the pranksterism of a bizarre parody religion called Discordianism, founded by a close friend of Lee Harvey Oswald, Kerry Thornley. The principles of Discordianism are mockery. But it’s jocularity hides a more sinister agenda, which is the prejudice that nothign is sacred, underlying their bigroty towards “traditional religions.”  William Stuart’s book The Invisible College, 9/11 To Armageddon. Fourteen years ago, author William Stuart began to explore the darkest regions of our planet and five years later he had enough data to support the claim that a strain of the Knights Templar had ensured that the American War of Independence, French Revolution, American Civil War, Russian Revolution, WW1 and WW2 took place. Five more years passed, and William discovered that when the Russian Revolution, heavy with Templar Masonry, began to fail because of the ‘peasant farmers’ loyalty to their Tsar, Rothschild, Khun Loeb, Warburg, J.P.Morgan, Rockefeller, Fabian Society Round Table and the American International Company applied direct funding to cover up the failure. The author knew that the Templars were controlled by American finance, who took orders from Geneva and that this organisation had designed seven strategic wars as a blueprint for financial gain and the growth of the New World Order as far back as 1710. They matched their seven wars to the “breaking of 7 seals” in the Book of Revelation, as all had been initiated into Red Masonry called Armageddon Masonry, using verses from that last book of the Bible. At this stage of his research William suspected that there was a potential seventh war, which could be seen as a mock up of Armageddon, so he set out to discover whether 9.11 and the chaos in the Middle East were connected, and if both events had originated from this satanic cabal. A compelling and exciting read, 9:11 to Armageddon is over 300 pages of brilliant research that is an absolute must for anyone interested in understanding the subversive organisations that run our world and how they have created every war since the American War of Independence.

First hour: news review: UKIPs take on Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations;  Adam Fleming on different Brexit scenarios;  Tommy Robinson – lunch with UKIP top brass: EDL founder Tommy Robinson went straight from court to lunch with UKIP top brass at the House of Lords after being told he faces wait to learn if he will be jailed for contempt. Tommy Robinson enjoyed a three course meal at the House of Lords yesterday. It came after he was released on bail by a judge over his contempt of court case. He drank red and white wine with Ukip’s Lord Pearson and leader Gerard Batten. His case has been referred to the Attorney General because it is ‘too complex’    – Tommy’s world tour;  PMQs Corbyn – lack of nurses in training – end to austerity in budget? PMQs police cuts;  increase in violent crimes in Bristol: Fishponds murder, Easton ‘stabbing’, St Paul’s assault – three weeks of violence in Bristol. Three serious incidents in three weeks have caused concern among communities. Three weeks of violent disorder in Bristol have resulted in the death of a young man, multiple arrests and the launch of a new police operation;  site safer with squatters in – fire: Ex-squatter on boathouse blaze: ‘They should have let us stay there’. During their stay they claim they improved the site’s safety, even installing fire alarms and extinguishers. Former squatters of an old boathouse gutted by a fire have claimed it would have been saved if it had still been occupied by them. The historic building in Redcliffe Wharf, which has been the centre of ambitious redevelopment plans for a number of years, suffered a devastating fire on Sunday. The empty historic building has long been a home to squatters, with a group of eight who occupied it from the summer of 2016 claiming they had in fact been improving the site’s safety. While the group were officially evicted in April 2018, reports had emerged of more rough sleepers taking over the building. But the fire service confirmed this week that nobody was inside when it erupted into flames. However, one of the building’s former residents, Richard Carey, 27, now living in Easton has spoken out about how the previous evicted group in April had spent the year-and-a-half prior improving safety in the building, including installing fire alarms and extinguishers. He said: “It’s incredibly frustrating to see something like this happen after the work we put into it and the warning we gave to Bristol City Council about what could happen if it was left unoccupied for long enough;  interview with Rick Carey, ex squatter, who was living in the buildingMarvin Rees’ State of the City speech – Bundred report on Council deficit and hence Marvin’s cuts;  about 400 rough sleepers in Bristol – homeless have skills to do up empty buildings;  PMQs Jacob Rees Mogg – Brexit;  Nigel Farage should be an MP – fraud: Tory MP ‘overspent on election campaign to end Farage’s political ambitions FOREVER’

Second hour: Investigative reports: Cesar Sayoc named as perpetrator of this week’s alleged letter bombs in USSuspected MAGA bomber identified as ‘Native American Trump supporter’ Cesar Sayoc. Psychological war games; ‘Strategy of Tension’ BBC 5 Live report from inexperienced BBC reporter Jennifer Smith reports on where the devices were sent and CNN headquarters being evacuated; all terrorist attacks are by FBI: The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before: The FBI has ramped up its use of sting operations in terrorism cases, dispatching undercover agents to pose as jihadists and ensnare Americans suspected of backing ISIS, aka the Islamic State, Daesh, or ISIL. On Thursday, roughly 67% of prosecutions involving suspected ISIS supporters include evidence from undercover operations, according to The New York Times. In many cases, agents will seek out people who have somehow demonstrated radical views, and then coax them into plotting an act of terrorism — often providing weapons and money. Before the suspects can carry out their plans, though, they’re arrested. – strategy of tension;  PMQs – SNP leader Ian Blackford –  arms deals with Saudi Arabia and Yemen war;  Brazil elections – Bonsinaro looks set to win – legitimate left wing candidates nobbled – SouthCom; Who is responsible for the rise of the fascistic Bolsonaro in Brazil? With Brazil’s second-round election little more than a week away, the fascistic presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who fell just short of winning an outright majority in the first-round vote, has maintained a wide lead over the candidate of the Workers Party (Partido dos Trabalhadores – PT), Fernando Haddad, with the two polling 49 percent and 36 percent respectively. The advent of a government led by Bolsonaro represents a genuine threat to the Brazilian and Latin American working class. The former army captain has vowed to put an end to all forms of “activism” in Brazil in order to force through the demands of international and Brazilian capital for drastic new attacks on the living standards and basic rights of the working class. In a country that was ruled by a military dictatorship for two decades from the 1960s to the 1980s, this is no empty threat. Trump pulling out of INF nuclear weapons treaty with Russia: Trump says US will withdraw from nuclear arms treaty with Russia  Experts warn of ‘most severe crisis in nuclear arms control since the 1980s’ as Trump confirms US will leave INF agreement: Trump was referring to the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF), which banned ground-launch nuclear missiles with ranges from 500km to 5,500km. Signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, it led to nearly 2,700 short- and medium-range missiles being eliminated, and an end to a dangerous standoff between US Pershing and cruise missiles and Soviet SS-20 missiles in Europe. – due to Russian violations; Americans attacked Russian airbase with drones: Over the past year Russia’s chief military base in Syria, Khmeimim Air Base near Latakia (alternately Hmeimim), has come under sporadic waves of attack by small armed drones, which have appeared increasingly sophisticated. Those attacks were assumed to have been the work of jihadists operating out of Idlib, such as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, who launched the small makeshift drones in an attempt to penetrate Russian defenses, even targeting the Russian naval facility at the Syrian port city of Tartus in addition. The Kremlin now says, based on new intelligence provided by the Russian defense ministry that a major attack on Khmeimim last January was coordinated by a US spy plane. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov presented statements confirming Russian intelligence has produced “undoubtedly a very alarming report” which finds a US P-8 Poseidon surveillance plane was behind the nighttime January 8th attack which involved 13 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in total — 10 approached Khmeimim while 3 attempted an attack on the naval facility in Tartus.  – arms sales;  Denmark – 12 years in prison for pro Russian views: Danish lawmakers have gone on the offensive against interference in public debate, sparking criticism that a new proposal, which could entail criminal liability for expressing opinions similar to those of Moscow, may become a step toward silencing public debate. According to a bill brought forward in local parliament, Danes could face a jail term if they voice dissent over the government’s position on Russia.The proposal, which is said to be meant to “strengthen efforts against illegal influence from foreign intelligence services,” would introduce criminal penalties for perceived “meddling” in public debates and attempts to influence decision-making. Crimes committed during an election campaign would entail a maximum prison term of 12 years20 Palestinians injured by Israeli armyHuman Rights Watch condemn Palestinian Authority; China’s ‘education centres’, up to a million interned for non-extremism training – John Sudworth BBC China correspondent; Kangaroo Court: US runs Hague’s International Criminal Court but won’t sign up to it – Christopher Black, lawyer, on war criminals going to jail – Yugoslavia and Milosevic being poisoned in prison – International Criminal CourtThe death of Slobodan Milosevic was clearly the only way out of the dilemma the NATO powers had put themselves in by charging him before the Hague tribunal. The propaganda against him was of an unprecedented scale. The trial was played in the press as one of the world’s great dramas, as world theatre in which an evil man would be made to answer for his crimes. But of course, there had been no crimes, except those of the NATO alliance, and the attempt to fabricate a case against him collapsed into farce.

First hour: news review: Labour councillor for Frome Vale Nicola Bowden-Jones, also Norman Rogers who chairs the charity that runs the Ashton Court Miniature Railway, the Bristol Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (BSMEE). The railway has been based at Ashton Court for 45 years, but is under threat due to Bristol City Council’s austerity measures. Norman explains: “They’ve told us they can improve their return from this site. If they can find an appropriate commercial opportunity, they’d much prefer it to an amateur society and charity. We’ll get priced out.” The Society’s lease is renewed on a five-year basis but the Council’s proposition would result in the closure of the site at the end of the 2018 season. “I can’t imagine losing the site,” Norman, who has volunteered with BSMEE for 12years, says. “Bristol would lose an enormous community asset, loved by so many.” This year, Ashton Court Miniature Railway has hosted visits from Bristol Autism Project, Special Friends Club and Gordano Valley Church’s Cludo Club. BSMEE is also considered a charity for its educational value: “Children come and they learn here. It’s such a wonderful introduction to engineering,” Norman continues. “Often they’ll jump off an American switcher engine and beg their parents for another ticket because they haven’t ridden the steam engine.” The money made from rides largely goes to the upkeep of the railway. BRISTOL MAYOR MARVIN REES GIVES HIS ANNUAL STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS: Bristol remains a city of challenges. We remain a wealthy city, the only region outside the south east to make a net contribution to the Treasury. We also have all the challenges of a modern city – air pollution, democracy deficit, education inequalities, health inequalities, congestion, housing shortage and insecurity… GLOBAL PARLIAMENT OF MAYORS COMES TO BRISTOL: Bristol is set to host the Global Parliament of Mayors this weekend, an event expected to bring the city to the forefront of international discussions. But it comes with a hefty £150,000 price tag that Marvin Rees will ask the council to underwrite, at a time when funding for public services are being slashed to the bone. Announcing the news during his annual State of the City Speech last month, Rees called it “a huge opportunity” for Bristol’s global profile and a chance to showcase all the city has to offer, in terms of investability, tourism and trade match-ups. The mayor is planning to underwrite the cost of hosting the event, that will see up to 100 city leaders, plus support staff, from across the globe convene in Bristol in November 2018, from his 2018/19 budget. It is hoped external sponsorship money can then be secured. “This is an important global event which puts Bristol at the centre of an international discussion on the role of cities and how we can address our shared problems around the world,” said Rees. ECONOMICS OF HAPPINESS CONFERENCE IN BRISTOL: Friday, October 19th – Sunday, October 21st, 2018 – Arnolfini Centre for Contemporary Arts – 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol, UK – Join us in the bustling city of Bristol for a highly participatory Economics of Happiness conference, set to coincide with the Annual Summit of the Global Parliament of Mayors. This will be our eighteenth international conference aimed at catalyzing a new economy that works for both people and planet. CAMPAIGN FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT HOLDS ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN BRISTOL: Towards a nuclear-free future: building change from the grass roots.

Second hour: Investigative reports: American Mercenaries Were Hired To Assassinate Politicians In The Middle East “There was a targeted assassination program in Yemen. I was running it. We did it.” The company that hired the soldiers and carried out the attack is Spear Operations Group, incorporated in Delaware and founded by Abraham Golan, a charismatic Hungarian Israeli security contractor who lives outside of Pittsburgh. He led the team’s strike against Mayo. “There was a targeted assassination program in Yemen,” he told BuzzFeed News. “I was running it. We did it. It was sanctioned by the UAE within the coalition.” The UAE and Saudi Arabia lead an alliance of nine countries in Yemen, fighting what is largely a proxy war against Iran. The US is helping the Saudi-UAE side by providing weapons, intelligence, and other support. The press office of the UAE’s US Embassy, as well as its US public affairs company, Harbour Group, did not respond to multiple phone calls and emails. The revelations that a Middle East monarchy hired Americans to carry out assassinations comes at a moment when the world is focused on the alleged murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi Arabia, an autocratic regime that has close ties to both the US and the UAE. (The Saudi Embassy in the US did not respond to a request for comment. Riyadh has denied it killed Khashoggi, though news reports suggest it is considering blaming his death on a botched interrogation.) Golan said that during his company’s months-long engagement in Yemen, his team was responsible for a number of the war’s high-profile assassinations, though he declined to specify which ones. He argued that the US needs an assassination program similar to the model he deployed. “I just want there to be a debate,” he said. “Maybe I’m a monster. Maybe I should be in jail. Maybe I’m a bad guy. But I’m right.” Bellingcat war propaganda, Facebook Censorship and the Atlantic Council: Yesterday we witnessed one of the greatest Facebook account and page purges since its formation over a decade ago. In total, 559 pages and 251 personal accounts were instantly removed from the platform, for having “consistently broken our rules against spam and coordinated inauthentic behavior” according to Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s Head of Cybersecurity and former White House National Security Council Director of Cybersecurity Policy under Obama. This is but one of similar yet smaller purges that have been unfolding in front of our eyes over the last year, all in the name of fighting “fake news” and so called “Russian propaganda”. What very few people know though, is that about 5 months ago, Facebook announced that is was officially partnering with the Atlantic Council in the form of an “election partnership […] to prevent [their] service from being abused during elections.” Indeed, the US midterm elections are only a couple of weeks away, so the Atlantic Council and its Digital Forensic Research Lab are now going at it with full force, closing facebook accounts left and right that they personally deem could be fake accounts, or accounts spreading misinformation, based on very shady criterias. One doesn’t need to look far to understand who the Atlantic Council are and what they stand for : it is a think tank essentially funded by NATO, weapons manufacturers, Middle-Eastern oil-state monarchies, billionaires and different branches of the US military. In short, it has been described as being nothing less than NATO’s unofficial propaganda wing. The Atlantic Council doesn’t shy away from its political intents across the world, which can be seen solely by looking at who sits on its directors board – the crème de la crème when it comes to US neocons & war criminals: Henry Kissinger, Condoleezza Rice, Frank Carlucci, James A. Baker, R. George P. Shultz, James Woolsey, Leon Panetta, Colin Powell, Robert Gates, and many moreDirty deals for enriched Uranium done with the Nazis in the closing days of WWII – and for Nazi nuclear bomb detonator technology – we hear from author of the book – Nazi International Joseph Farrell on this and the organisations set up by vice President Harry Truman – WWII US president Franklin Roosevelt didn’t want to use the atomic weapons against population centres in Japan – then died a premature death. TORY ELECTION FRAUD TRIAL: Tory MP Craig Mackinlay ‘over-spent’ while standing against Farage, court hears.  Michael Crick C4 News Political Correspondent A Tory MP over-spent more than twice the legal limit during his 2015 general election campaign while trying to stop the then Ukip leader Nigel Farage becoming an MP, a court has heard. South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay, along with his election agent Nathan Gray and Conservative party official Marion Little, are on trial alleged to have been complicit in submitting false expenditure declarations following Mr Mackinlay’s victory. SEVERAL $500m US F-22 RAPTOR JETS ‘LEFT OUT’ SMASHED UP BY HURRICANE MICHAEL: THE US Air Force’s Tyndall Air Base in Florida has taken a direct hit. Many of its ultra-advanced F-22 Raptor stealth fighters have been caught on the ground. Exactly how many of the $475 million aircraft were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Michael has not yet been revealed. The United States Air Force could only afford to buy 187 operational examples of the 5th generation stealth fighter. Now, that number may have been significantly reduced.

New regulations, fines; Bristol Council run as a business: Plans to make Bristol City Council ‘more business-like’; Piecemeal ideas, such as putting advertising in Bristol parks , will be brought under one banner with the help of Penny Fell, who as of August is the council’s new director of commercialisation. In a report, she said the “council has no widely understood meaning of the term ‘commercialisation’”, before drafting her own definition: “Bristol City Council will achieve efficiency savings and income growth by developing, implementing and evaluating commercial objectives and activities in a more business-like way”. Some of this new approach may have been seen in a deeply unpopular decision by the council not to renew the lease for Ashton Court miniature railway on the grounds the land could make more money turned over to other uses. PMQs Corbyn – Education – pay cuts for teachers; Mervyn King says 2008 financial crisis was not Labours fault: Labour not responsible for crash, says former Bank of England governor. Mervyn King says there was shared intellectual responsibility across political parties for failing to foresee problems – was an international crisis.

Second hour: Investigative reports: Bellingcat and Skripal affair:  government says of Bellingcats investigation – no conclusive evidence; MH17 and Bellingcat; interview with Eliot Higgins on BBC World at One – how did he find out Petrov was Dr Alexander Mishkin? Is Skripal working with Western secret services? The two Russian men suspected by British intelligence of poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in England in March shadowed the former double agent in Prague in 2014, Czech Radio (CR) has cited sources as saying. In an October 10 report, CR cited unnamed Czech intelligence sources as saying that the Russians — whom cybersleuthing group Bellingcat says it has unmasked as military intelligence officers Anatoly Chepiga and Aleksandr Mishkin — visited Prague in 2014 and that Skripal was there at the same time. Were Skripals poisoned with Novichok? – not deadly enough; anomalies of Skripal affair; nurse and doctor who initially cleared Skripal airways as they were foaming at the mouth on the bench were not affected by the ‘Novichok’ but detective who just happened upon the scene was poisoned – Wiltshire coroners office in Endless Street Salisbury were clearing the decks for the inquests – expecting two bodies because HUNDREDS would normally die if Novichok were really used, they were supposed to be dead — third Russian possibly involved – Hospital consultant said NOBODY was poisoned with nerve agents: Once we posted a tweet about the seemingly anomalous statements made in a letter to the Times by a senior doctor at Salisbury hospital we’ve seen the issue being raised in many places, most recently on Moon of Alabama. To recap: On March 16 Steven Davies, “Consultant in Emergency Medicine” at Salisbury hospital, wrote the following letter to the Times in response to an article that had appeared there two days earlier.This is the text of the letter: “Sir, Further to your report (“Poison Exposure Leaves Almost 40 Needing Treatment”, Mar 14), may I clarify that no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve-agent poisoning in Salisbury and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning. Several people have attended the emergency department concerned that they may have been exposed. None had symptoms of poisoning and none has needed treatment. Any blood tests performed have shown no abnormality. No member of the public has been contaminated by the agent involved. STEPHEN DAVIES, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust Sergey Fedetov.  Julian Assange – Guardian story. As his isolation intensifies, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange faces possible threat of eviction, extradition. Wikileaks – Amazon data centres – DNC leaked emails to Wikileaks. Robert S Muller III – key evidence – Skripal came up with stuff to discredit Trump – pee in bed. Back then I did not realise what I now know, that the person being protected was Pablo Miller, colleague in both MI6 then Orbis Intelligence of Christopher Steele, author of the fabrications of the Trump/Russia golden shower dossier. That the government’s very first act on the poisoning was to ban all media mention of Pablo Miller makes it extremely probable that this whole incident is related to the Trump dossier and that Skripal had worked on it, as I immediately suspected. The most probable cause is that Skripal – who you should remember had traded the names of Russian agents to Britain for cash – had worked on the dossier with Miller but was threatening to expose its lies for cash. Army investigates Tommy Robinson photo with soldiers: Tommy Robinson with army. Ben Walker block Tommy joining UKIP story.  Jo Glenton Guardian story – PMQs  British Army – supporting families. Jamal Kashoggi – killed in Istanbul story….Trump discussing killing – will he cut off arms sales to Saudis? – Audio, video recordings prove Khashoggi killed inside consulate: report US and Turkish officials told The Washington Post there are audio and video recordings proving Khashoggi was tortured and murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Video recordings show a Saudi assassination team seizing the journalist after he walked in on October 2. He was then killed and his body dismembered, the officials told the Post – the newspaper that Khashoggi wrote for as a columnist. The audio was particularly gruesome, the sources said. “The voice recording from inside the embassy lays out what happened to Jamal after he entered,” said one official speaking anonymously because the intelligence is classified. “You can hear his voice and the voices of men speaking Arabic. You can hear how he was interrogated, tortured, and then murdered.” Another unnamed official confirmed men could be heard beating Khashoggi on the recording. It was unclear how the Turkish and American officials obtained the recordings.  Why did US Ambass ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley resign? Presidential pressure? Political ambitions to be more warmongering and Zionist than Trump? Ron Unz 9/11 story – false flag attacks by Mossad: Certainly no other nation in the world can remotely match Israel’s track-record of remarkably bold high-level assassinations and false-flag attacks, terrorist and otherwise, against other countries, even including America and its military. Furthermore, the enormous dominance of Jewish and pro-Israel elements in the American establishment media and increasingly that of many other major countries in the West has long ensured that even when the solid evidence of such attacks was discovered, very few ordinary Americans would ever hear those facts. The pattern of behavior is really quite remarkable. Even prior to the establishment of the State of Israel, the various Zionist factions assassinated Lord Moyne, the British Minister for the Middle East, and Count Folke Bernadotte, the UN Peace Negotiator, and made unsuccessful attempts to kill President Harry S. Truman and British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin, while even discussing the possible assassination of Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  The history of military and terrorist attacks is even more striking. One of history’s largest terrorist attacks prior to 9/11 was the 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem by Zionist militants dressed as Arabs, which killed 91 people and largely destroyed the structure. In the famous Lavon Affair of 1954, Israeli agents launched a wave of terrorist attacks against Western targets in Egypt, intending to have those blamed on anti-Western Arab groups. There are strong claims that in 1950 Israeli Mossad agents launched a wave of false-flag terrorist bombings against Jewish targets in Baghdad, successfully using those violent methods to help persuade Iraq’s thousand-year Jewish community to emigrate to the Jewish state. In 1967, Israel launched a deliberate air and sea attack against the U.S.S. Liberty, intending to leave no survivors, and ultimately killing or wounding over 200 American servicemen before word of the attack reached our Sixth Fleet and it was called off. Interview with Manfred Petritsch from All Smoke and Mirrors Blog about NATO warfare economy and murder of leader of Donbass Ukraine separatists Alexander Zakharchenko: Washington is upping the ante in Ukraine. Kurt Volker, US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations, said in an interview with the Guardian published on September 1 that “Washington is ready to expand arms supplies to Ukraine in order to build up the country’s naval and air defense forces in the face of continuing Russian support for eastern separatists.” According to him, the Trump administration was “absolutely” prepared to go further in supplying lethal weaponry to Ukrainian forces than the anti-tank missiles it delivered in April. “They need lethal assistance,” he emphasized. Mr. Volker explained that “[t]hey need to rebuild a navy and they have very limited air capability as well. I think we’ll have to look at air defense.” The diplomat believes Ukraine needs unmanned aerial vehicles, counter-battery radar systems, and anti-sniper systems. The issue of lethal arms purchases has been discussed at the highest level. The move is provocative and it may have consequences. For instance, Russia could supply the self-proclaimed republics in eastern Ukraine with up-to-date weapons systems in quantities sufficient to deter any military action on the part of Kiev. Once the Minsk accords are no longer functional and cannot command obediance, Moscow could recognize those republics as independent states that are eligible for military cooperation agreements, which would include stationing military bases on their soil. If their governments invited the Russian armed forces to be deployed inside their borders, it would be quite natural to agree to those requests. No international law would be breached. In a nutshell, if the US crosses that red line, Russia will act accordingly. Nobody seems to want a war raging in Ukraine, but that’s what the US weapons supplies would promote, egging the Ukrainian government on to seek a military solution. And what if it loses? Washington would be to blame for such a scenario. By the way, is it a coincidence that Mr. Volker’s interview appeared just as Alexander Zakharchenko, the leader of the Donetsk self-proclaimed republic, was assassinated? Just asking.

First hour: news review: From October 2017: Marvin Rees plans to knock down Cumberland Basin and rename it ‘Western Harbour’ – From private ‘Place Dynamix’ cover website: The Cumberland Basin sits at the fork between the River Avon and Bristol Floating Harbour. The western peninsula of Spike Island sits within walking distance of Bristol’s affluent neighbourhoods of Clifton and Hotwells, home to Georgian houses, universities and high -quality lifestyle retail offerings. The Cumberland Basin stakeholders met the mayor’s helpers in June and were told everything is early days (in effect go back to sleep). Bristol Against Tower Blocks Facebook pageToday someone found this: Odldy enough this has not been publicly revealed and was not mentioned by City Design in their 9th April presentation during the Local Plan consultation period. The person who found this “lead consultants website” comments as follows – What stands out is: • The sheer density of the proposed building on Spike Island. • The intention to build as high as the current Bond Warehouses (!) • The large edifice at the tip of Spike Island. No doubt giving a premium view of the Suspension Bridge. The view from the Bridge might not be quite as premium in future. I do hope it is proposed to be a public building, and just not expensive flats or offices. • The smaller height of the proposed Hotwells scheme. Albeit what precisely is planned is unclear. • The restoration of Avon Crescent as a through-route. • Some really ugly architecture, although it might just be indicative of what could be built there (if we make as little effort as we have with the rest of the Harbourside). • The lack of a replacement bridge (!!) – source on the Place Dynamics pages – Mayor Marvin Rees plans to get rid of swing bridge and put tunnel inBristol set to smash Marvin Rees’ target of 2000 new homes a year target; Bristol congestion charge? – Bristol buses, Metrobus;  Airbus Filton takes on swathes of apprentices amid growing fears of Brexit ‘carnage’  – George White gifted Filton to Bristol;  Fracking protesters’ ‘absurdly harsh’ jail sentences spark calls for judicial review backed by hundreds of scientistsWelsh leaders urged to halt ‘nuclear mud’ dumping off Cardiff – ‘Radioactive mud’ Sediment from Hinkley Point C construction site: Among those backing the objectors is the Emeritus Prof Keith Barnham, a distinguished research fellow in the physics department at Imperial College London, who argues it is possible that large amounts of uranium and dangerous levels of plutonium could have reached the mud when cooling water from the decommissioned Hinkley Point A was discharged. 2018 Tory Party Conference: speech by Esther McVey, Work & Pensions Secretary – jobs and great new benefit system; Theresa May’s speech – an end to austerity? – Brexit – John Pilger’s view of the crooked 2008 bankers who caused austerity; Boris Johnson’s speech to party conference – Chequers Brexit deal no-good, power of EU.

Second hour: Investigative reports: Claims of Russian Hacking from all over the World:  what does GCHQ do!;  easy to conceal the origin of an attack;  Western Intelligence Agencies and Information Warfare; CNN article: UK blames Russian military for ‘reckless’ cyber attacks, Britain, Australia and New Zealand have accused Russian military intelligence of carrying out a worldwide campaign of “malicious” cyber attacks, including the hacking of the US Democratic National Committee in 2016. British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said in a statement Thursday that the country’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) had found that Russian GRU intelligence service operatives were behind cyber attacks believed to have cost the global economy millions of dollars. Australia and New Zealand released similar statements alleging that their own intelligence agencies had found evidence of Russian involvement in the same attacks on political, business, media and sporting institutions; Wikileaks broke US election fixing story; Anna Holligan on BBC – about Russian GRU agents outside Global Chemical Weapons Watchdog OPCW building in The Hague – trying to hack in; Is this what the Russian agents learned in The Hague? OPCW said Skripal poison may have been BZ nerve gas not Novichok; Russia’s foreign minister has claimed Sergei and Yulia Skripal were not poisoned by nerve agent novichok, but a separate chemical possessed by the UK and US. Sergei Lavrov said Moscow had received information from a laboratory in Spiez, Switzerland suggesting the Russian double agent and his daughter were exposed to a non-lethal substance known as BZ. He claimed the laboratory had passed Russia confidential information after analysing samples of the agent used in the attack on the Skripals in Salisbury last month. – Israeli assassination expert interviewed on Salisbury Novichok story: Israeli assassination expert Alexander Brass: pulls ‘absurd’ Skripal story to piecesAn Israeli expert on international terrorism, writer Alexander Brass, shared his view on the case of the Skripals poisoning in Salisbury. Brass draws parallels between the work of the special services of Israel and Russia – he believes that if to compare the British version with the practice of the special agents, then the absurdity becomes obvious. “Alexander, so what, in your opinion, happened in Salisbury?” – There was a rough provocation by the British special services. In my opinion, this is obvious.  – Why do you think so? – “There’s a lot of stupidity on stupidity.” The story with Petrov and Boshirov does not hold up any professional peer review. According to the Brits, the Skripals were poisoned by GRU agents (this is what the department is called, although this is now the Main Directorate of the RF General Staff). I want to explain how the special services work. If you need someone to eliminate, then this is a very serious operation, which is being prepared for a long time. A very significant material and human resource is allocated. We are talking about dozens of employees. On the territory of this state, an “advanced command post” is being created. In the operation, a technical support group, a logistic group, a cover group, an external surveillance group and a group of performers are involved. The performers themselves appear at the very last moment. They do not go anywhere, lighting up on cameras, do not use public transport, but move on rented cars, which they do not rent themselves. And the more they will not stop in hotels, but will live on safe houses provided by the logistics group. Such groups do not come under the passport of their country, do not go to the embassy for obtaining a visa, leaving fingerprints. This is complete nonsense. Professionals do not work that way. If the GRU acted, both the killers and the other participants in the operation would come to the UK on the passports of other countries that have visa-free relations with it. Here, two alleged GRU officers go to the embassy, ​​leave their fingerprints there, get a visa, stop at the hotel, pass under all the cells. This you will not find even in ladies’ detective novels;  Theresa May’s speech about the dangers of Putin, and Corbyn’s security policies.  Plants more resilient to insects – biological weapon. US Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison appeared to threaten war against Russia in comments Tuesday, saying the US was prepared to preemptively “take out” certain Russian missiles that the US objects to Russia having. Hutchison added that Russia was “on notice” that the US was prepared to launch preemptive military strikes against them, and would not allow Russia to keep any missiles that the US believes are in violation of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. Attacking Russia would be a serious issue, whether or not US officials believe they have a treaty pretext to justify it. Russian officials were quick to warn that they don’t think people making such statements realize the “danger of aggressive rhetoric.” http://www.AntiWar.com.
