    I think the problem is over generalisations . I have seen plenty of Russian tourists in Turkey , being wined and dined . A playground for them . The trick is proportional response . Finding those responsible . Keeping Turkey onside .....

    It is true that the history of humanity is a history of conflict. That is why it is always good to have a strong military and a keen sense of situational awareness in dealing with various people.

    The sad fact is that war has become too easy and so often seems to be the first choice at a solution, when it should always be the last.

    I sometimes read where you are a little harder on White Americans. I would like to let you know that a significant number of nonwhite Americans like Afro Americans can be just as prejudiced toward Russia and have the same arrogant hubris as many White Americans

    People can be bastards and it matters not what their skin colour is or their nationality... there are plenty of people in Russian prisons who deserve to be there.

    I would suggest that perhaps sometimes I forget to mention when talking about the evils of the US I am not talking about the general population, but the government in charge... but to a degree the general US population really doesn't care very much about what their government does internationally as long as they have good jobs and their economy is going OK they really don't seem to care which country they are invading this time or whether the claims for the reasons for the invasion stack up or not.

    Saddam is a good case in point... the final reasoning was that he was a bad man and Iraq is better off without him after the evidence use for the actual invasion was proven to be bullshit. The average American accepts that and thinks that is fine, but if you can invade any country you like because you think the leadership are "bad" then no country is safe... including your own... you are basically saying that Germany was not totally wrong to attack various countries in Europe during WWII because there were some evil bastards in charge in other countries at the time... I am sure they could list a range of misdeeds and corruptions to justify what they did too. It does not make what was done right or justified.

    Think of people like Colin Powell, Condelezza Rice, Susan Rice and Barack Obama.

    All criminals who should be tied to a stake and shot...

    Regarding black americans... their ancestors were sold into slavery by their black neighbours who beat them in wars and sold them as slaves to white foreigners.

    Israel is a perfect example of a victim going on to being a criminal doing the same things they were victims of, but they are victims so this time it is understandable and for so many except the new victims acceptable.

    No matter the rhetoric of a Democrat or a Republican presidential candidate; they will support the evil and corrupt American empire like Barack Obama. He was no friend of the working man in America neither despite the image of the Democratic party as a party of the poor.

    He did nothing to help black people in the US... he was the biggest disappointments you could imagine... just like Hilary would have been if she was made president because she doesn't care about women... she forgave her man slut of a husband just to hang on to power and influence in the hope of a presidency... no pride, no shame.

    But is is all part of the game.... if you are a Chinese or Russian dissident then expect to be on the front page of Time magazine and a peace prize, if you are a dissident in the west releasing information about western and eastern governments doing bad things then expect prison time like Assange and Snowden.

    I would like to know do you see nonwhites like Afro Americans and Hispanics have the same hubris and arrogance as White American regarding foreign countries and American power?

    Most people do not see beyond their own lives and their own problems and could care less about starving people that are not in their face. They will pick a route to walk in a city so they don't have to walk past homeless people in the street whom they think are lazy or stupid or both. It is not a race thing and it is encouraged too... the rich people who own the media we access information through don't want us to think about poor people as anything but stupid or lazy or both.

    Once you are there it is hard to get out of that situation... how can you get a job if you only own the clothes you are wearing and they stink. Even if you got a job how can they pay you... you don't have a house to live in so you can't get a bank account... some rich people own many houses... some own them to sell them for enormous profit and no one actually lives in them most of the time... yeah, they say market forces and democracy is the best way, but it is so damn unfair and wasteful... personally I think some form of socialism is needed... communism does not work, but we need to think more as a team rather than a huge group of individuals fighting over the same nest for resources...

    How about mentioning that Lithuania is now a major supplier of ammunition to the Ukrainian military.


    Lots of countries harbor Chechens, there were many phone calls made by the terrorists at Bieslan to Vienna, Austria.

    I wonder why? Vienna is the city where the Organization of the Ukrainian Nationalists was founded in 1929.

    But Putin is a good friend of Austria.


    Ukrainian nationalists supported the Chechens in both wars, but Russia continued to supply Ukraine with lots of free natural gas, and even made pro-Ukrainian movies like the Taras Bulba remake.


    And back in the 2000's some Chechen terrorist(s) died at the hands of the Turkish Police, during a hostage situation in Turkey.

    Turkey actually completely ceased its support for the Chechen separatists by 1997.


    That Russian Air Force jet violated the Turkish air space, so shooting it down was a legitimate act.


    Get your facts right.

    Yes, Lithuania did waste all their reserves on Ukraine, idiot move, but what can you expect from low IQ government and low IQ people in general?
    Lithuania doesn't even produce ammunition anymore, they only had small arms munitions that were needed like water in case Lithuania needed to mobilise..

    Austria is land of crooks and pedophiles - no wonder Putin recently managed to get a hold on some of the lackeys there. They are like Germany, only 10 times more corrupt. Various terrorist organisations are known to operate from there.
    So what are you saying is no suprise.
    Turkey supported chechens even on second chechen war and Russia had to liquidate chechen scum on turkish soil.
    Turkey had as much rights to shoot down russian plane as ukrainian has a right to fuck your polish wife. turkroach aew&c was up in the air waiting for russian jet to cross tiny strip of that dirty kebab land and from all accounts they even fired before there was violation. no warning was given, no payout was paid. Plenty of turkrats were cheering on all forums and in the streets

    Syrian War: News #19 - Page 26 Empty Arrr Mateys! Back to the old days. Piracy in the high seas as the UK, (at the request of the U.S) blocks oil Tanker bound for Syria at Gilbratar (War Booty from Spain!).

    Post  ATLASCUB on Thu Jul 04, 2019 1:47 pm

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jul/04/royal-marines-gibraltar-tanker-oil-syria-eu-sanctions

    A detachment of Royal Marines and the authorities in Gibraltar have seized a supertanker suspected of carrying oil to Syria in breach of European Union sanctions.

    The UK government welcomed the “firm action by the Gibraltarian authorities” in intercepting the Grace 1.

    Gibraltar’s chief minister, Fabian Picardo, praised the “brave men and women” from the Royal Marines and the local agencies involved in the operation.

    He said: “In the early hours of this morning, Gibraltar port and law enforcement agencies, assisted by a detachment of Royal Marines, boarded a supertanker carrying crude oil to Syria. We have detained the vessel and its cargo.

    “This action arose from information giving the Gibraltar government reasonable grounds to believe that the vessel, the Grace 1, was acting in breach of EU sanctions against Syria.

    “In fact we have reason to believe that the Grace 1 was carrying its shipment of crude oil to the Banyas refinery in Syria.”

    Speculation going about that the operation was undertaken at the request of the U.S, who provided the tip to the UK. Obviously we have to laugh at the new Spaniard who runs the EU Foreign Ministry - acting as if it was all in the club - when it clearly wasn't. Since, well, we all know the UK doesn't gives two shits about a Union that it itself is leaving (but will milk it while it can - hence the enforcement of "EU sanctions"). Puts the EU in a tight spot vis a vis Russia... not to mention the salt rubbing on Spaniards.

    ==========================
    Update: Seems the ship has been tracked for a while by US/UK intelligence services.

    https://ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCAKCN1R10G9-OCATP

    An earlier Reuters article about Iran bypassing sanctions to ship oil to Singapore and China feature this very ship. The report is too detailed to not be a story crafted with the help of and at the behest off an asset. Too precise on where to look, when to look and what to look for.


    NO RECORD AT BASRA

    Documents forwarded to Reuters by ship owners say a 300,000 tonne-supertanker, the Grace 1, took on fuel oil at Basra, Iraq, between Dec. 10 and 12, 2018. But Basra port loading schedules reviewed by Reuters do not list the Grace 1 as being in port during those dates.

    One Iraqi industry source with knowledge of the port’s operations confirmed there were no records of the Grace 1 at Basra during this period.

    Reuters examined data from four ship-tracking information providers - Refinitiv, Kpler, IHS Markit and Vessel Finder - to locate the Grace 1 during that time. All four showed that the Grace 1 had its Automatic Identification System (AIS), or transponder, switched off between Nov. 30 and Dec. 14, 2018, meaning its location could not be tracked.

    The Grace 1 then re-appeared in waters near Iran’s port of Bandar Assaluyeh, fully loaded, data showed. The cargo was transferred onto two smaller ships in UAE waters in January, from where one ship delivered fuel oil to Singapore in February.

    Shipping documents showed about 284,000 tonnes of fuel oil were transferred in the cargoes tracked by Reuters, worth about $120 million at current prices.

    Officials at Iran’s oil ministry declined to comment.

    Singapore customs did not respond to requests for comment.

    The Grace 1, a Panamanian-flagged tanker, is managed by Singapore-based shipping services firm IShips Management Pte Ltd, according to data. IShips did not respond to several requests for comment via email or phone.

    A Reuters reporter visited the office listed on IShips’ website but was told by the current tenant that the company had moved out two years earlier.

    (MAP: Grace 1 tanker movement between Iraq, Iran and the UAE - tmsnrt.rs/2FkRjMK)

    SHIP-TO-SHIP TRANSFERS

    The ship-tracking data analyzed by Reuters showed the Grace 1 emerged from the period when it did not transmit its location almost 500 kilometers south of Iraq. It was close to the Iranian coast with its draught - how deep a vessel sits in water - near maximum, indicating its cargo tanks were filled.

    The Grace 1 transferred its cargo to two smaller tankers between Jan. 16 and 22 in waters offshore Fujairah in the UAE, data showed.

    One of those vessels, the 130,000 tonne-capacity Kriti Island, offloaded fuel oil into a storage terminal in Singapore around Feb. 5 to 7. Reuters was unable to determine who purchased the fuel oil for storage in Singapore.

    The Kriti Island is managed by Greece’s Avin International SA.

    The tanker was chartered by Singapore-based Blutide Pte Ltd for its voyage to Singapore, Avin International’s Chief Executive Officer George Mylonas told Reuters. Mylonas confirmed the Kriti Island took on fuel oil from the Grace 1.

    There is no indication that Avin International knowingly shipped Iranian fuel oil. Mylonas said his firm had conducted all necessary due diligence to ensure the cargo’s legitimate origin.
    CERTIFICATE OF ORIGIN

    Mylonas emailed Reuters a copy of a Certificate of Origin (COO) that he said was provided by the charterers – referring to Blutide - showing the Grace 1 loaded fuel oil at Basra on Dec. 10 and 12, 2018.

    “The Certificate of Origin and all the information obtained did not reveal any connection with Iran, let alone that the cargo of fuel oil originated” from there, Mylonas wrote.

    Mylonas said the Grace 1’s owners, managers, shippers, receivers and charterers were screened by Avin International. “There were not circumstances that would make the COO of dubious origin,” he said via email.

    He said he had been told by the charterers that the Grace 1 only stopped in waters off Iran in late December and early January for “repairs of damaged diesel generators” before sailing to Fujairah.

    The document provided by Mylonas says Iraq’s state oil marketer SOMO certified the Grace 1 in December loaded a total of 284,261 tonnes of Iraqi fuel oil.

    Reuters shared the document with a SOMO official in Iraq who said it was “faked” and “completely wrong”. The official declined to be identified by name, citing the marketer’s communications policy.

    Two other Iraqi oil industry sources with direct knowledge of Basra port and oil industry operations also said the documentation was forged.

    The two sources said the document bore the signature of a manager who was not working at Basra port on the stated dates. The document also bears contradictory dates: It indicates a loading period of Dec. 10 and 12, 2018 but a sign-off date for the transaction of Jan. 12, 2018.

    Exactly. The general population is equally responsible. They are the ones who elect these diabolical US government. And they have been doing this for the last 100+ years. They know fully well that the US govt kills thousands of innocent people across Asia, Africa every year & yet they don't bat an eyelid coz it makes no difference to them. Instead they are quite happy that hundreds of companies across US make billions of $$ in profit because of these wars.

    It hasn't happened by accident, there is a history of peace movements in the US and even to this day there are American citizens who went to Venezuelan embassies and territories to act as human shields to prevent their own government from attacking.

    Plus while I suggest many don't care... I would also suggest within the system they really don't get much of a say anyway, so if you don't get a say why would you care... in fact actually taking an interest and finding how impotent you really are because there are no discussions and anyone with a dissenting view becomes the enemy... and in the US there are only two sides of any debate... democrat and republican and in this case both sides benefit from war and are on the same side of the argument... they would invade too but the current political opponent did it the wrong way this time...

    As Lee Camp says in his TV programme... Americans reporting stories about America in America have to register as foreign agents, and some people they talk to in the street call them communists.

    The thing I don't like about Russia Today as a channel is that it is dominated by Americans talking about America... I watch Russia Today to learn about progress and development in Russia. They had an excellent programme called Technology Update... it was brilliant and it was cut.

    And these peace movements also have a long history of failing. Guess why- they are sponsored by the US government itself to create the impression in the mind of gullible people that US civil society is an entity completely separate from the US government. If people around the world makes no effort to distinguish between US government and US private citizens, American businesses will suffer globally, big time.

    Another failure. How many US citizens volunteer for such acts ? Out of 350 million Americans barely a dozen will undertake such an ordeal. The rest of the country gleefully cheer gruesome acts of the US government carried out in foreign countries.

    They are a minority in the sense that they actually care enough to do something and have the financial ability to do something... so it was never going to be a large majority... if such a majority existed then Trump wouldn't consider doing what he has done because he needs votes...

    That SU-24 was in Turkish Airspace for 7 seconds total time, the pilots realized they accidentally flew in and quickly corrected it.

    The F-16 that shot it down was in the air and waiting along the SU-24's flight path before it entered the Airspace.

    The Turks had a legal right to gun the aircraft down since it DID enter their airspace that is true to a very limited point. But you can argue they also didn't the Aircraft did not threaten them and posed zero threat to them. It wasn't trying to perform an attack run or anything, you could make the case it was Murder and that would be fair.

    International law does require you to issue a verbal warning, the Turks did not do this they just fired hell by the time the missile HIT the SU-24 it was out of Turkish airspace.

    But at the same time shooting down an aircraft that entered your airspace purely by accident for no even 10 seconds is a straight up finger and you can argue it was a provocation and IMO isn't a defensible act.

    Was an act of aggression. not even in the height of the Cold war did the Soviets gun down planes that where in their airspace for seven seconds.

    Excellent vindication for shooting down KAL007, but what difference do airspace rules make when US AEGIS cruisers enter Iranian waters and shoot down Iranian airliners in Iranian airspace...

    Just a case where a US ally is likely encouraged to defend its own air space from US rivals... funny as hell when that US ally is then almost overthrown by an attempted US supported coup... really put things into perspective for him then...

    You insufferable, manipulative person.

    I don't ever remember saying on this forum the shooting down of a civilian airliner is right.

    However, that incident was a hot post mess of confusion and guys not sharing information with each other.

    The Soviets themselves destroyed one or two civilian airliners on accident.

    Unless you are trying to say we did that on purpose, you need to keep quiet if you have nothing productive to say other then.

    I’m really beginning to question your age and by extension, your maturity. I sure as hell don’t believe for one minute your stories of conflict presence - as I’ve made perfectly clear already.

    That aside, this is the second time within a week where you’ve asked a member here to cease posting (in a not so nice a way) because you didn’t like the counter argument presented. You are aware that this is a forum....where people post, irrespective of what the poster has written, right? Telling people “you need to keep quiet” etc is rather bizarre to be frank.

    Excellent vindication for shooting down KAL007, but what difference do airspace rules make when US AEGIS cruisers enter Iranian waters and shoot down Iranian airliners in Iranian airspace...

    Just a case where a US ally is likely encouraged to defend its own air space from US rivals... funny as hell when that US ally is then almost overthrown by an attempted US supported coup... really put things into perspective for him then...

    You insufferable, manipulative person.

    I don't ever remember saying on this forum the shooting down of a civilian airliner is right.

    However, that incident was a hot post mess of confusion and guys not sharing information with each other.

    The Soviets themselves destroyed one or two civilian airliners on accident.

    Unless you are trying to say we did that on purpose, you need to keep quiet if you have nothing productive to say other then.

    Your government said it was good... they gave the ship commander and weapons officer medals for doing an excellent job above and beyond the call of duty...

    However, that incident was a hot post mess of confusion and guys not sharing information with each other.

    It was an incident the commander of the ship created himself.

    The AEGIS cruiser is an information processing centre... if any vessel in the region had a complete picture of air, sea surface and undersea, it was them...

    The Soviets themselves destroyed one or two civilian airliners on accident.

    By mistake, not by accident... that was the Ukrainians that shot down that Israeli airliner with their S-200 missile... and of course that Malaysian airliner they shot down with a BUK.

    The aircraft the Soviets shot down entered their airspace and did not respond to communications... after half a century of the US sending converted bombers on missions to penetrate Soviet airspace to test defences and trigger radar and intercept responses... not really the same thing as going to a foreign country, illegally entering its waters while firing upon its naval vessels and then shooting down passing airliners inside their own airspace.

    Unless you are trying to say we did that on purpose, you need to keep quiet if you have nothing productive to say other then.

    The way the guilty were treated, I would say while there is no evidence it was done on purpose, there is no remorse, and you certainly didn't act like what happened was wrong.

    I believe secretary of state George Bush snr said at the time.... "I don't care what the facts are... America is not to blame..."

    "US IS EVIL BLAH BLAH BLAH".

    You could use that as your signature...

    I really don't like giving bans, and very much try to avoid doing so whenever I can.

    I certainly wont use a ban to censor someone... he is free to hold any opinion he likes, as is everyone here.

    The last one I gave was to Miketheterrible, which annoyed me to do.

    Generally I agree with him most of the time, but rules about respect are important... the job of mod is not easy and I do not take it lightly... it is like bringing up kids... you need to know when to use a slap, and when to use a word... there is no manual and every kid responds differently... hit some kids and you lose them forever... others all they need is that short sharp shock to realise we aren't buddies and I have a responsibility to keep things working properly.

    This is a forum for discussion. Not fight club.

    Personally I think it is better to talk about things than try to pretend alternative views don't exist. I don't expect to change his view and I rather doubt he expects to change mine, but it is important... in fact it is healthy to hear from differing points of view...

    That member brought up something completely irrelevant to what was said.

    I mentioned how Turkey was in the wrong for shooting down a SU-24.

    They then bring up something that was done on accident, that has ZERO to do with the subject matter. It's just baiting for an argument so excuse me if I call them out for that habit.

    Explain to me then what a pre-planned downing of a military aircraft has to do with the accidental downing of a civilian aircraft. Was it wrong? yes, never once claimed it was right.

    But that incident has nothing to do with what I said, I have asked them time and time again if they cannot stick to the subject matter do not respond to me.

    I don't ever remember saying on this forum the shooting down of a civilian airliner is right.

    However, that incident was a hot post mess of confusion and guys not sharing information with each other..

    Sure.. It was a "confusion".. perhaps that was the reason ,the Pentagon gave medals
    oh honors and celebrated like Heroes the captains ,who shoot down the Iranian civilians airliner legally flying in a civilian route towards another country with 300 hundred civilians women and children on board..

    In case you didn't knew All civilian airliners flight with ID transponsder that identify themselves as civilians airliners ,for Traffic control in other countries to guide them..
    The americans knew it was a civilian airliner ,they also show as a huge target on radar
    and still shoot it down.. So imagine how will Americans react if IRANs sends warships near Florida and shoot down a civilian Airliner of American airlines , flying over over Florida airspace?

    Is obvious that Honesty is not one of your virtues.. neither understand the difference between Right and wrong.. And ABout Russia shoot down of the Korean airliner.. that happened during the cold war ,that US was very hostile with Russia ,.and provoking them ,as US did to IRAN , invading their airspace.. and was after half an hour .. they korean plane enter in Russia territory and was heading to fly over Military bases.. Russia had no way to know if the planes had bombs or nukes , and it represented a major huge national security issue ,since was the plane flying over Russia military bases.. and after half of hour of no response from the plane.. they took the decision to shoot it down.. So the Russians did everything they could.. and the plane did not responded for a long time ,and did not changed course and so the decision was made. .Even Putin recently about the need of authorizing the shoot down of civilian airliners ,that refuse to follow orders and try to fly over Russia military bases.. So there is a HUGE difference between US shoot down of the Iranian civilian airliner and Russia shoot down of the korean one.. One did not got any warning ,and was legally flying over Iranian airspace.. while the Russian incident it was a rogue plane.. that refuses its pilots to follow orders and continue flying an hour INSIDE RUSSIA airspace ,rejecting to listen any orders to stop.. Russia had no way to know if there was terrorist inside who captured the plane or if the plane had nukes or bombs inside aimed
    at destroying Russian bases.. by using the civilian plane as a weapon.. which could happen as WTC 911 have shown..

    Looks like the new Korsar UCAVs played a key role beating terrorists out of Hamamiyat.
