16 June 2018. Russia Didn’t Defeat Hillary… Hillary Defeated Hillary… America Remembered Her Evil in the Nineties

________________________

There was no Russian tampering with the election. Note well that those who make such accusations are very comfortable with and passionately defend American interference in foreign elections. That seems like smug hypocrisy and juvenile arrogance to me. I confide that I’m not the only one to come to that conclusion.

16 June 2018. Solidarity… NOT Theoretical Purity… The Need of the Present Hour

________________________

The pressing need today is solidarity, not theoretical purity. If you find those willing to break unity for the sake of a theoretical point, you’ve found one of two things. They’re either self-centred assholes or they’re provocateurs. The times are dire… we must all stand together or The Man will most assuredly hang us all separately. Have a care with those who attempt to argue the point…

Kommersant: DPRK Gains Equal Footing with USA, Secures Concessions

________________________

The historic meeting between the leaders of the USA and the DPRK in Singapore split those who viewed it as the first step towards normalisation on the Korean peninsula and those who called the document signed by Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un “weak” and “without substance”. Kim gave no guarantees of immediate disarmament, whilst Trump avoided direct security guarantees but promised not to carry out annual US-ROK drills. Experts agree that Kim emerged as the key victor since he succeeded in pulling his state out of isolation and achieving recognition of equality from the USA, neither his father nor his grandfather managed to accomplish this. The preparations for the first-ever meeting between US and DPRK leaders was reminiscent of a tremendous reality show and the historic handshake that was an informal outcome of the Singapore summit gave a clear signal to the world… peace and security on the Korean peninsula are in good hands for the first time over the past dozens of years. A diplomatic “Singapore wonder” occurred… the Little Rocket Man turned into an equal interlocutor and a potential partner of the US leader. Aleksandr Gabuyev, head of the Asia-Pacific Program at the Carnegie Moscow Center, said:

Kim achieved the most important outcome… the signing of an agreement with Washington diverts the threat of a war on the Korean peninsula, which was quite real this winter. Over the past six months, Kim managed to end diplomatic isolation, restore tarnished relations with China, hold two meetings with ROK President Moon Jae-in, host a meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov, and gain recognition by Trump as “a very talented man” who “deeply loves his country”.

Go Myong-hyun, an expert from the ROK ASAN Institute for Policy Studies, noted:

The DPRK denuclearisation path is a Libyan scenario vice versa. The USA halts drills, pulls the DPRK out of isolation, and Pyongyang vowed to “work towards denuclearisation” without any particular timeframe and a plan. Kim pledged to move towards a nuclear-free DPRK rather than “a denuclearised Korean peninsula”.

Konashenkov: Militants Preparing Provocation in Syria to Initiate US Attack

________________________

On Monday, Minoborony source Major-General Igor Konashenkov said:

According to information confirmed through three independent channels in Syria, the command of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” aided by US special ops units are preparing a serious provocation involving chemical weapons in Deir ez-Zor Governorate. FSA militants delivered chlorine cylinders to Deir ez-Zor Governorate to simulate another chemical attack against civilians. After publication in western media, a staged video is set to initiate a missile strike on Syrian state facilities by the US-led coalition to justify an offensive operation by militants against Syrian government forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. We warn that the use of such provocations to destabilise the environment on Syrian territory is unacceptable.
