    The Nicaraguan Parliament approved the entry of Russian troops despite US threats, 14.06.2022.

    MANAGUA (Sputnik) — The Nicaraguan National Assembly approved, with 79 votes (91), the income of military troops, ships and aircraft for humanitarian purposes, among which are the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, despite threats from Washington by the presence of Russian military in the region.

    "We are in our own courtyard, neither the front nor the back, it is our own courtyard, and it is what gives us the total and sovereign freedom to put in the corresponding dimension the gratitude to a nation [Russia] that has not taken from us, that has always given us," said Deputy Moisés Absalón Pastora, an ally of the ruling Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN), during the plenary session.

    The president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, authorized on June 8, the entry of troops of Russia, the united States, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and Cuba, to participate in the training, and sharing in humanitarian aid operations, missions, search, rescue, and rescue in emergency situations or natural disasters, according to the decree published in The official La Gaceta.

    The president also authorized members of the Nicaraguan army to travel to these nations to carry out humanitarian activities, an exchange that had to be ratified by the National Assembly.

    The decision of the State of Nicaragua, which is due to an ordinary exchange, which has been held twice a year, since the 90s, was rejected on Friday, June 10, in the context of the Summit of the Americas, by the advisor for hemispheric security affairs of the United States, Juan González.

    González said that his country is considering taking "forceful measures" against Nicaragua, to exclude it from the Free Trade Agreement with Central America and the Dominican Republic — DR-CAFTA, for its acronym in English—, for inviting Russian troops to military exchange on its territory.
    Deputy Pastora stated that the only invasion that Nicaragua has received from Russia is that of cooperation for collective transport, for the fight against COVID-19 and to advise the National Police in the fight against drug trafficking and organized crime.

    Wálmaro Gutiérrez, deputy of the FSLN, defended Nicaragua's right to develop its bilateral relations with the ends and countries it wishes.

    "Definitely the thief judges by his condition, because unlike those countries guerreristas, Nicaragua is a free, sovereign, independent, self-determined, democratic and peace-loving; a social State of law that does things with the basis of the Constitution and that it has the right to develop relations of all types in the framework of the law and the exercise of their democratic sovereignty," he said.

    Sandinista legislator Filiberto Rodríguez described as a "tradition" the ratification of the legislative decree, which is initialed by the National Assembly every beginning of the semester.

    They have been very effective in Venezuela at rallying the underworld to destabilize the country. I am not going to sing Venezuela's praises, but the US
    routinely employs all sorts of slime to further its geopolitical ambitions. Syria and Ukraine are good examples.

    Do we have any reliable forecast how bad the next winter is going to be in Germany? In case of a big energy crisis I am not sure whether the political elites would get stronger or whether the German population could turn the tables to end the vasal status of Germany, once they realize that America is going to sacrifice them for their insane plans against Russia.

    Yup, getting Australia to buy a type of Submarine it does not need for money it can't afford to meet US interests.

    Australia could only possibly need an SSN if they wanted to operate far from Australian waters for long periods... like off the coast of China where the US wants them.

    It would also justify a large US naval base in Australia which they will also like for forward deploying forces to piss off the Chinese.

    In a recent meeting in the Pacific the US went to great efforts to point out it is a Pacific nation, while ignoring that Russia and China are too.

    The Aussies dropped a French deal for a conventional sub based on a nuclear sub design for probably 90 billion for an alternative SSN design that they have no idea of yet to be made who knows where and there is no way it will only be 90 billion... it will be 500 billion or more because they need to build a completely new ground based infrastructure and nuclear industry to support these subs and it is not going to be cheap.

    US hysterically calling for their minions to help them set the world on fire, now tensions are being ramped up in Kosovo. "Surprisingly" Blinken was there 5 days ago censored

    The issue can followed here:

    ASB Military News
    Forwarded from Donbass Devushka (Area 52)

    Comment by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry M.V. Zakharova

    “The decision of the “authorities” in Pristina to start, from August 1st, the application of unreasonable discriminatory “rules” on the forced replacement of personal documents and registration numbers of local Serbs is another step towards the expulsion of the Serb population from Kosovo, the displacement of Kosovo Serb institutions that ensure the protection of the rights of Serbian residents from arbitrariness Pristina radicals led by the "premier" A. Kurti. The Kosovar leaders know that the Serbs will not remain indifferent when it comes to a direct attack on their freedoms, and they deliberately escalate in order to launch a military scenario. Of course, Belgrade is also at the forefront of the attack, which the West wants to additionally "neutralize" with Kosovo Albanian hands.

    We call on Pristina and the US and EU behind it to stop provocations and respect the rights of Serbs in Kosovo."

    Pelosi going to Taiwan and upsetting things in Kosovo... it seems the US wants distractions to take away attention from the situation in the Ukraine...

    Could it be they expect collapse, or they have finally gone batshit crazy and want to set fire to everything they possibly can before they get revealed for the conniving evil monsters that they are...

    edit: sounds like Belgrade could do with some NLAWs and Javelins with their faulty weak batteries replaced... perhaps some Stingers too...

    They need waters as murky as possible, international economy disrupted and the multipolar world criminalized to pull off their plans. But in general they just look increasingly desperate and by now they are betting the farm in increasingly risky adventures:

    > In 404, they offer a historical opportunity to Russia of finishing the anti-Russian project called Ukraine for good and consolidating their ancient lands under one political authority.
    > In Taiwan, they risk forcing China to take control of the critical semiconductors industry located there, plus transferring de facto control of the West Pacific from their hands into Chinese ones, with what it means for Japan, Korea and the rest of their colonies in the region
    > In the Balkans, forcing Serbia to take control of Kosovo and Montenegro, given they are increasingly being harassed, isolated and marked for elimination. The access to the sea is critical for them receive support and may be forced to take it back forcefully.

    Provocations are easy to implement, what is more important is to be able to calculate properly what your real strength is, in order to actually win from the destabilisation you create more than your rivals. And that is where the West is simply too arrogant and too incompetent, not realizing that Russia, China and other countries aversion of conflicts was not hiding weakness, but exactly the opposite.

    The whole saga of raping Yugoslavia is a sad example of what is a real goal of NATO.
    As long as the confederation of Serbia and Montenegro existed, what remained of Yugo was able to be supported and supplied by any given ally, let it be Russia or China.
    I suppose that a lot of assets were put into disturbing Serbia/Montenegro relations for the last 30 years.
    Montenegro represents a perfectly zero military value to the Alliance, but being it a part of it blocked&crushed any potential attempt to relieve Serbia. Made it landlocked, and put it on a silver plate to any pressure. That is why Serbia is much determined for EU integration, hoping that it will make some sort of shield. Well, it won't.

    It would be a big error for Serbia now to insist on appeasing the West, that strategy belongs in the past and now it must reassert itself inside its historical borders and with their historical alliances. The West has no need for a Serbia and any politician pretending otherwise is risking the destruction of the country.

    Have you guys heard of what David Petraeus has said recently about the United States would destroy Russia's military in the Ukraine and sink its naval fleet? I personally don't think Petraeus is serious but Russia should respond in kind violently; the US needs to be taught a lesson in that they are not fighting Iraq, Syria or some other weak country.

    Based on what logic.... they claim they are not party to this conflict... if they tried to sink the ships of the Black Sea fleet that would be an act of war, does he ignore the fact that US ships are all over the place and would be easy to target and the weapons the Russians have for sinking ships from Onyx to Kinzhal and Kh-32 are all incredibly potent systems... not to mention the brand new Zircon.

    Russia does lack ships, but they don't need ships to sink every US ship within 2,000km of their coastline... including the US ships based in Japan and South Korea and lurking around the South China seas... maybe Russia should send MiG-31Ks through Chinese airspace to sink the next group of US ships wanting to sail that way...

    General "Betray-us" is just spouting the brain rot drivel that is common to the US "elites". Every discussion about a preemptive nuclear
    strike on Russia demonstrates a severe level of mental dysfunction. For example, launch on warning is completely forgotten and
    Russia is just going to sit there for 30 minutes waiting for US nukes to hit targets on its soil before retaliating. The only way this
    would happen if the US somehow manages to compromise Russian command and control at the right moment. I just do not see
    how this would be possible since technologically it is impossible to disrupt command communications in Russia even with EMP nukes
    and having the sort of meat puppet infiltration is only possible in wet dreams. Even if Putin himself was a secret NATzO stooge,
    then it would be impossible to prevent a retaliation response from Russia.

    But here we have some never-won-any-battle bureaucrat with military badges yapping about a nuke attack on Russia as if Russia
    was Iraq. Sorry, but this sort of inanity cannot be explained away by cunning 6D chess. It is just f*cktarded.

    The same sort of brain rot manifests in the calm discussion of US B-2 bombers flying over Russian territory undetected and dropping
    their loads of non-standoff munitions. I don't think even getting high on acid can produce such nonsense.

    It raises another interesting issue... we have seen how effective Russian air defence systems are in Syria and now in Ukraine... not perfect but abundant and widely deployed and seems to be very effective... how does that bode for their strategic air defence systems like the S-500 and new S-550, as well as their upgraded ABM systems around Moscow.

    They have four or five military districts? Would that mean four main city centres that will also be defended by such systems?

    The S-500 and S-550 are a reaction to the american cancelling of the ABM treaty. They will be deployed everywhere in the country, at least near "strategic" places like St. Petersburg, Murmansk, Wladiwostok, Petropavlovsk, Sewastopol...

    I agree, but S-500 and S-550 are mobile systems like S-300 and S-400 and are meant to support ground and air units (S-300V4 and S-400 units respectively), but I wonder if major centres in each military district might get their own ABM system like Moscow.

    Or they might set up ABM systems for major military centres like Murmansk for the Northern Fleet and Vladivostok for the Pacific fleet....
