NATO’s 5,000 warplanes ready to bomb Russia, Chinese media say

The United States of America is used to exercising control over the Russian Federation in cooperation with Europe. However, EU countries have had a plethora of problems lately, and the US will have to count on its own forces in the event of an open military confrontation with Russia.A recent article published on Chinese publication Jinri Toutiao said that the Russian government is confident and correct in its actions. The Kremlin does not even think to obey Washington, nor does it follow the path of aggression. Russia acts solely in its own interests and in the interests of national security, the Chinese publication said. However, the United States follows a completely different path of behaviour. The number of NATO bases in countries of Eastern Europe, such as Poland or the Baltic States, has been growing during the recent years. According to official data, there are several thousands of NATO soldiers and more than 100 tanks in Eastern European countries. Interestingly, NATO sees the main advantage of its army in the air force. If necessary, NATO member countries can have as many as 5,000 warplanes ready within the shortest amount of time possible. However, it is unlikely that NATO will dare to bomb Russia, the Chinese publication says.

How the United States destroyed Brazil

A week ago, the news about one of Brazil's presidential candidates, Jair Bolsonaro, who suffered a stab wound in the stomach during a rally, made headlines all over the world. The events that have been happening in Brazil lately show how one can destroy a country following Washington's instructions and finances to combat corruption. Corruption is the main target of contemporary color revolutions. Anti-corruption slogans can work very well in the countries, where the state is deeply involved in criminal schemes. Ukraine and Armenia are the most recent examples. The 2014 soft coup in Brazil through the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff was no exception. Brazil is a country where Soros foundations feel confident, because the Americans have the nation's judicial and fiscal systems under total control. Brazil will elect its new president in October, and Acting President Michel Temer, a liberal, will be free to go. Two weeks ago, the leader of the presidential race was former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of the Workers' Party (PT). Lula is a mechanic, who managed to build a solid team during the 2000s to ensured Brazil a powerful economic breakthrough. Lula also set up a social security system that helped as many as 40 million Brazilians out of poverty. Needless to say that people will never forget that. There is another leader in the race - the above-mentioned Jair Bolsonaro. One can not find any positive article about Bolsonaro in the Brazilian press today. He is referred to as racist, fascist, misogynist individual, etc. Jair Bolsonaro is a candidate from the Liberal Social Party (PSL), a former paratrooper, a supporter of strict discipline and a champion of military dictatorship. He sticks to anti-globalist and nationalist views in foreign policy. Strangely enough, most of his supporters are young people. Order - this is the main word that the Brazilians like in his program.In 2014, power in Brazil was transferred inside PT - from Lula to Dilma Rousseff. She won the presidential election by very small margin against liberal candidate Aecio Neves. Brazil was a strong liberal economy, but PT did not let American transnational companies access giant oil fields on the shelf. State oil company Petrobras received monopoly for their development. In addition, Lula was conducting an independent foreign policy, particularly with respect to Iran, and was supporting the idea of the anti-American CELAC bloc in the region (Greater America without the US and Canada). Mercosur, a successful trade bloc of South American nations, had influence both globally and inside the BRICS.However, regardless of who comes to power in the United States, Washington does not take relations with other nations seriously. "This is a large country, and it has developed a habit to push  relations with others into the background. Our critics believe that we must start the day by requesting permission from the United States to sneeze and then permission from Europe to cough. We will not do that," Lula once said. Of course, the Americans had to get rid of Lula and his party. His successor, Dilma Rousseff, had to deal with the power of the propaganda machine in the face of media giants, such as Globo, Record and Folha.A series of high-profile corruption scandals started immediately after the election. It turned out, though, that there was not enough evidence. It was only possible to accuse Dilma of attracting  private investment for social programs - a move that allegedly helped her win the election. Dilma Rousseff was impeached for violating budgetary financial discipline. Interestingly, Brazilian senators had made a number of trips to the United States for consultations on the issue.At the same time, Lula fell under investigation on the so-called Lavajato case ("Car Wash"). He was accused of giving contracts to construction companies for Petrobras projects in return for kickbacks and transfers to party accounts. There was not enough evidence collected against Lula either, but there was a three-story apartment in the city of Guaruja. As a result of the persecution, Lula was sentenced to 9.5 year for the apartment that he did not even own. As appeals were being filed, Lula managed to run for president, but left the race last week after the Supreme Court did not let him take part in the election process because of his conviction. The case of "Car Wash" involved the entire Brazilian establishment; six ministers of Michel Temer's cabinet were convicted under various articles. At first, the people of Brazil were happy about the criminal persecution of their government officials. However, the story ended up with the eradication of trust to politicians and officials. The stagnation of the Brazilian economy did not go anywhere, social programs were closing one after another, and the day of the next presidential election was drawing near. American special services found themselves in a tricky situation at this point. Lula's counterparty is a retired military, who puts in place those concerned with gender and racial inequality, promises to restore order in state structures and reduce street crime with the help of the methods practiced by Filipino President Duterte. He is not involved in corruption scandals, and the party that he is running from is just a stand. One may say that he is an independent candidate.Look at the results of the polls two months before the voting according to IBOPE: 1. Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) - 37 percent, Jair Bolsonaro (PSL) - 18 percent, Marina Silva (Rede) - six percent, Ciro Gómez PDT) - five percent, Geraldo Alkmin (PSDB) - five percent.On September 1, the Supreme Court did not let Lula take part in the election, and Bolsonaro fell a victim to a stabbing attack on September 7. The nature of the wound indicates that the attack was an attempt to kill him. The attacker is a supporter of Lula, and many directly point to PT's hand in the incident. In other words, someone wanted to kill two birds with one stone: PT and its second candidate Fernando Haddad lose the race, and Bolsonaro is disabled. Such coincidences do not occur for nothing. Bolsonaro survived, and now the IBOPE rating looks as follows: Bolsonaro has 26 percent, he is  followed by Ciro Gomez (11 percent), Marina Silva (nine percent), Geraldo Alckmin (nine percent) and Fernando Haddad (eight percent)."Here is a message for those bandits who tried to ruin my father's life: they have just elected the president," Bolsonaro's son Flavio said when leaving the hospital.Well, Bolsonaro can definitely win the first round. Obviously, the giant globalist propaganda machine will work at full capacity. Reportedly, they are mobilising a whole army of women on social media - up to 500,000 people - who will push Bolsonaro about and accuse him of sexism, xenophobia and racism.Every country should fight corruption. There is corruption in every country. However, one should not struggle against corruption at the behest of the US, because Washington is good at destroying other countries' statehood. By the way, the new leadership of Brazil launched a program to privatise four airports, two port terminals, granted access to private companies to a number of formerly state projects - from construction to mining ones, including to Petrobras. This means that the poor will grow poorer, and the rich will grow richer. This is what Brazil had left behind, and this is what it has returned to now. Can Bolsonaro change anything?

Russian ‘spies’ Petrov and Boshirov say they work in fitness industry

The main event of September 13 in Russia is the interview, which Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov gave to RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan. The British authorities accused these two men of involvement in the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury and referred to them as officers of the Russian military intelligence, GRU. First off, the two men acknowledged in the interview that those were their real names. "From the very beginning, we wanted to come to London and have fun there, it was not a business trip. Our friends have long recommended we should go to visit this wonderful town of Salisbury. We went there to see Stonehenge, Old Sarum, but we couldn't do it, because traffic in England was paralysed on March 2 and 3," Petrov said. In Salisbury, they also wanted to see the town's cathedral, which is famous for its spire. Petrov and Boshirov acknowledged that they could have passed by Sergei Skripal's home, although they did not know where it was located. The two men also said that they did not bring any poisonous substances or Nina Ricci perfumes with them. "Isn't it silly for two normal lads to bring women's perfume along? When you go through customs control, they check all your belongings. If we had had something, they would have had questions as to why a man would have women's perfume in his luggage," Boshirov said.Boshirov and Petrov responded negatively to the question of their work for the Russian military intelligence, which is commonly referred to GRU, although its official name was changed several years ago. The men said that they work in the industry of fitness and sports nutrition. They confirmed that they had been to Switzerland several times as well, but mostly for tourism. The men said that their lived changed completely after their photos and videos were published in world media. "We can't go out, we are scared, we are scared for our lives, for our loved ones, for those people who know us," said Ruslan Boshirov. It is worthy of note that Petrov and Boshirov gave an interview to RT the day after President Putin appealed to them to come out to media representatives.

VATICANO – Chiesa cattolica e crisi umanitarie in Siria e Iraq: numeri e volti di una “risposta” a tutto campo

Città del Vaticano – Istituzioni e realtà appartenenti alla Chiesa cattolica, nell'arco di tempo tra il 2014 e il 2018, hanno mobilitato complessivamente più di un miliardo di dollari per rispondere alle emergenze umanitarie connesse ai conflitti che hanno devastato la Siria e l'Iraq. L'aiuto fornito dalla rete ecclesiale si è rivolto indistintamente “a tutte le persone in stato di bisogno”, senza tralasciare forme sdi assistenza e supporto specifico per le comunità cristiane locali colpite dalla crisi. Nel solo 2017, sono stati circa 4,6 milioni gli uomini, le donne, i bambini e le bambine che hanno avuto sostegno grazie ai progetti solidali messi in campo dalla rete ecclesiale. E il 2018 si va configurando come un anno di svolta nelle strategie dell'intervento ecclesiale a favore della popolazione di quelle regioni, con una diminuzione progressiva delle risposte di tipo emergenziale e il potenziamento di progetti e iniziative di maggiore impatto nel medio-lungo termine, in parallelo con l'evoluzione degli scenari geopolitici in Siria e Iraq. Sono questi alcuni dei dati concreti esposti nel rapporto dell'indagine sulla risposta delle istituzioni ecclesiali alla crisi siriana e irachena, presentato nel primo pomeriggio di giovedì 13 settembre alla sessione d'apertura dell'incontro sulla crisi umanitaria in Siria e Iraq, organizzato presso la Pontificia Università Urbaniana dal Dicastero vaticano per il servizio dello sviluppo umano integrale. Il rapporto, esposto dalla dottoressa Moira Monacelli - responsabile dell'Humanitarian Focal Point for the Iraqi?Syrian Crisis – è stato realizzato sulla base dei dati forniti da 84 istituzioni ecclesiali . Esso fornisce un quadro complessivo unitario della risposta della rete ecclesiale alla crisi umanitaria siriana e irachena, oltre a prefigurare “linee comuni di riflessione e orientamenti condivisi di azione per il prossimo futuro”.

Un aiuto capillare e diversificato
Secondo le informazioni esposte nel rapporto, in Siria più di 13 milioni di persone sono in stato di bisogno; vi sono 6,6 milioni di sfollati interni, mentre 5,6 milioni sono i rifugiati registrati nei Paesi limitrofi, principalmente in Turchia, Libano e Giordania. In Iraq, 8,7 milioni di persone sono in stato di necessità, di cui più di 4 milioni di bambini. Nei sette Paesi dell'area coinvolti nella crisi umanitaria provocata dai conflitti in Siria e Iraq operano attualmente più di 5.800 professionisti e più di 8.300 volontari connessi a realtà e istituzioni ecclesiali cattliche,, che si uniscono a sacerdoti e religiosi operanti in loco. Nel 2017, la rete ecclesiale ha utilizzato nelle attività umanitarie a favore della popolazione più di 286 milioni di dollari USA. Il dato è stato “il più elevato dal 2014”, e attesta che l’impegno della Chiesa si consolidato negli anni, adattandosi all'evoluzione dei bisogni delle popolazioni, sempre più differenziati nei diversi Paesi.
Nel 2017, il 35% dei fondi spesi è stato destinato alla Siria, il 30% al Libano, il 17% all’Iraq e il 9% alla Giordania. Nello stesso anno, il settore d’intervento prioritario su cui sono state investite più risorse è stato quello dell'istruzione più di 73 milioni di dollari USA, di cui 45 milioni utilizzati in Libano) che ha superato i fondi destinati all'aiuto alimentare . In generale, si è assistito a un aumento del sostegno per “attività atte a fornire e rafforzare mezzi di sussistenza alle famiglie, attività generatrici di reddito, formazione professionale, creazione di opportunità lavorative”. Le stime relative all'anno ancora in corso sembrano prefigurare un calo complessivo dei fondi utilizzati rispetto al 2017: nel 2018 dovrebbero essere circa 230 i milioni di dollari utilizzati negli interventi umanitari della rete ecclesiale nella regione; ma per la prima volta – così attesta il rapporto - il lavoro diversificato e capillare della rete ecclesiale a favore delle moltitudini travolte dai recenti conflitti mediorientali si va “proiettando verso il futuro anche nelle attività di risposta alla crisi, con la fine della fase acuta dell’emergenza”. Così, mentre l’istruzione resta il settore prioritario d'investimento, crescono i fondi utilizzati nel campo sanitario e diminuiscono drasticamente quelli utilizzati nell'aiuto alimentare.

Migranti e “ritorni”
Il rapporto curato dal Dicastero vaticano per il servizio dello sviluppo umano integrale fa riferimento anche ai problemi legati alla condizione delle moltitudini di sfollati e rifugiati che stanno mettendo alla prova anche le economie e la tenuta sociale di diversi Paesi dell'area. “Non possono essere sottovalutate” si nota nel rapporto “le crescenti tensioni intercomunitarie, ed è quanto mai importante continuare a lavorare sulla coesione sociale, su un accesso equo ai servizi pubblici, un sostegno alle persone più vulnerabili delle comunità ospitanti”. Anche per questo “Il ritorno nelle comunità di origine è uno dei temi centrali della risposta alla crisi e uno degli ambiti prioritari su cui si focalizzerà l’azione della Chiesa nei prossimi anni”. Un fenomeno che attualmente “riguarda prevalentemente l’Iraq e la piana di Ninive , mentre è più limitato in Siria”. .

USAF to use F-35B Lightning II against Russia’s Su-57 and S-400 systems in Syria?

The US military intend to use F-35B Lightning II fighter aircraft in Syria. According to experts, this type of aircraft has a potential to intimidate forces of the enemy.It is expected that the F-35B Lightning II will be able to perform any mission in Syria.  This is the only deck-based aircraft in the Middle East, and the US military may use them for military operations on the territory of Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan.The US Air Force has never used this type of aircraft in combat action before, the USNI News website wrote. "The deployment of the F-35B into U.S. Central Command is a major milestone for the program and validates the aircraft is in the fight right now, conducting real-world operations; it is actively supporting combatant commanders. We look forward to demonstrating the capability of our newest, advanced stealth aircraft during this deployment," Capt. Christopher Harrison, a spokesman at Headquarters Marine Corps at the Pentagon, told USNI News on September 12. The F-35B Lightning II aircraft is equipped with Block 3F software, which enables the maximum use of data transmission lines and increases the weapon delivery potential. According to Harrison, the ability of the F-35 to operate in A2/AD zones with restricted or denied access gives the US an advantage in conducting military operations.The official also said that the United States, unlike in Iraq and Afghanistan, does not have air superiority in Syria, where Russia also deploys her powerful aircraft and air defences. Therefore, it will be hard for F-35s to compete with Russian aircraft in case of a military conflict between Russian and US forces in Syria. In addition, the US fighter jet will not be able to overcome Russia's S-300 and S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems. As for the low-visibility technology, the F-35 is inferior to both the F-22 and the Su-57, because the radars of Russian air defence systems operate in a wide frequency range. The manoeuvrability of F-35 aircraft is comparable to that of F-15 and F-16 jets.The armament of the aircraft also raises questions. For example, the air-to-air close combat AIM-9X Sidewinder missile is incapable of overcoming anti-aircraft missile systems. In addition, the aircraft gun that fires 3300 rounds per minute causes the aircraft to swing horizontally. Even if US pilots use the onboard radar of the F-35 to detect and avoid air defence weapons, they will come across serious problems, because all of Russian military facilities are protected with a radar field. One should bear in mind the fact that Russia is significantly superior to the United States in the field of radio electronic struggle.

AFRICA/NIGERIA – P. Jude Egbom ucciso nel corso di una rapina. “Colpisce la totale mancanza di rispetto per la vita” dice un sacerdote

Abuja - “Si è trattato di un tentativo di rapina finito male” dice all’Agenzia Fides p. Patrick Tor Alumuku, Direttore dell’Ufficio per le Comunicazioni Sociali dell’Arcidiocesi di Abuja, riferendo le circostanze dell’uccisione di p. Jude Egbom ucciso a colpi d'arma da fuoco la sera del 10 settembre a Umuwala, nello Stato di Imo nel sud della Nigeria. .
“P. Egbom si trovava da un barbiere quando alcuni banditi sono entrati per una rapina. Non si sa bene cosa è successo ma ad un certo punto i malviventi hanno esploso alcuni colpi d’arma da fuoco, uccidendo il sacerdote e ferendo gravemente un seminarista che si trovava con lui” dice p. Patrick. “Quello che colpisce è la totale mancanza di rispetto per la vita umana” sottolinea il sacerdote.
P. Patrick conclude riferendo che “non si sa ancora quando si faranno i funerali di p. Juge perché questa settimana i Vescovi sono in riunione a Sokoto quindi anche l’Ordinario di diocesi di Orlu, Augustine Tochukwu Ukwuoma si trova lì”.
P. Jude Egbom era parroco presso la St Patrick's Parish Amucha.
A poche ore dall’uccisione del sacerdote cattolico, un altro grave episodio di violenza è accaduto nello Stato di Imo. Alcuni malviventi hanno sparato, uccidendolo, a un sergente dell’esercito di guardia ad un posto di blocco nei pressi della Assumpta Catholic Church, la Cattedrale cattolica di Owerri, capitale dello Stato di Imo.

Pussy Riot man Verzilov poisoned in Moscow

Pyotr Verzilov, a member of Pussy Riot punk band, was hospitalised in critical condition. It was said that the man has been kept in intensive care since September 11.Verzilov's relatives said that he may have suffered from poisoning as he had earlier complained of poor eyesight, then he could neither speak nor walk and eventually developed cramps. On September 11, Pyotr Verzilov was attending a court session, at which he supported other Pussy Riot members - Veronika Nikulshina and Diana Dedenko. Verzilov intended to pass documents to them, of which he wrote on Twitter. His health condition worsened later the same day. Verzilov's relatives said that the man did not take any medications that day, nor did he eat anything suspicious. Verzilov did not suffer any traumas either. "The doctor only said that the condition was heavy, but he was showing positive response to treatment - he started reacting to his name," Veronica Nikulshina said adding that doctors could not inform her about the diagnosis as she was not the patient's relative. Verzilov's mother was not allowed to visit her son, nor was she informed about his diagnosis. It was reported that Verzilov could suffer as a result of an intake of psychotropic medications. It transpired, though, that Verzilov suffered vertebro-basilar insufficiency, reduction in circulation of artery blood and impaired brain function.Doctors said that the patient's medical analyses did not show anything, despite the man's serious condition, but Verzilov's relatives are sure that the man was poisoned. Bloggers assumed that Verzilov was poisoned with a nerve agent. Symptoms of neuroparalytic poisoning include loss of eyesight, muscular paralysis, respiratory arrest. All these symptoms lead to lethal outcome. Photo: Wikipedia Also read: The PR of Pussy Riot

AMERICA/ARGENTINA – In aumento quanti soffrono la fame, il governo chiede aiuto alle chiese per distribuire aiuti

Buenos Aires – Una particolare manifestazione si è svolta ieri a Buenos Aires: migliaia di persone hanno marciato e invitato altri cittadini ai punti di ristoro organizzati come "pentole popolari" , per condividere qualcosa da mangiare, in segno di protesta contro l'attuale governo del presidente Macri. Le migliaia di partecipanti alle manifestazioni, in diversi punti della capitale, hanno paralizzato Buenos Aires. L’obiettivo era chiedere al governo di fermare l'aumento dei prezzi dei prodotti di base delle famiglie e proporre di dichiarare l’emergenza alimentare.
"Siamo ad un passo dal paradosso che in un paese che ha posti di lavoro e che produce cibo per 400 milioni di persone, venga imposta la fame ai quartieri più umili, ai più poveri, e si metta a rischio la pace sociale" ha detto ieri Daniel Menéndez, coordinatore nazionale dell'associazione "Barrios de Pie", uno degli organizzatori della manifestazione, secondo la nota pervenuta a Fides. Presente anche una delle associazioni di lavoratori più numerosa dell'Argentina, la Confederación de Trabajadores de la Economía Popular , che ha chiesto al presidente Macri di riformulare le sue politiche in modo che le persone abbiano "da mangiare e possano vivere in pace".
Da parte del governo, secondo la stampa locale, si cercano le soluzioni più adatte per affrontare una delle crisi mai viste prima in Argentina: "Vogliamo sfruttare la potenzialità delle strutture per garantire che l'assistenza raggiunga chi ne ha più bisogno", ha detto un responsabile del governo, commentando la crisi alimentare che le stesse autorità riconoscono.
Venerdì 7 si è tenuto un primo incontro, su iniziativa del Ministro della salute e dello sviluppo sociale, con le autorità della Caritas. Mons. Oscar Ojea, Vescovo della diocesi di San Isidro e presidente della Conferenza episcopale argentina , ha nominato il suo Vescovo ausiliare a San Isidro, Mons. Martín Fassi, responsabile del coordinamento di questa iniziativa. Il governo ha anche fatto un appello alle chiese evangeliche, chiedendo aiuto nella distribuzione del cibo.
Secondo alcuni osservatori, sembrerebbe così che la Chiesa cattolica sia vicina al governo, ma le conclusioni del Congresso di Córdoba, della settimana scorsa, intitolato “Repensando la política”, dimostrano il contrario. L’evento, organizzato dalla Pastorale Sociale della Conferenza Episcopale negli anni non elettorali, ha criticato molto fortemente la gestione della presidenza attuale dell'Argentina: "il popolo attende leader politici che li rappresentino, che non si lascino intimidire dai grandi poteri economici e che non cadano nella corruzione" si legge nelle conclusioni.
Il governo di Mauricio Macri aveva concluso un accordo con il FMI, a giugno scorso, per ottenere finanziamenti per 50.000 milioni di dollari, con i quali ha cercato di fermare la svalutazione aggressiva del peso e di contrastare il deterioramento della macroeconomia, ma nella vita di ogni giorno il numero di gente che soffre la fame cresce sempre di più.
