killing my world: having to eat food with a gas mask.....

Prosulfocarb is one of the most widely sold herbicidal active substances in France. For several years now, ANSES has been paying close attention to the problems posed by spray drift of prosulfocarb products. For example, the Agency has examined deposits on non-target crops following prosulfocarb treatments. It has also updated its assessment of products with regard to the exposure of local residents. Below we take stock of the work carried out by ANSES since 2017.

nuland's after-burner-blackmail....

The US will only allow Türkiye to return to the F-35 fighter jet program if it agrees to ditch Russia’s S-400 missile defense system, Acting Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland has said. The American official also suggested that Washington may even lift sanctions on its NATO ally if Ankara is more amenable.

Speaking with CNNTurk television on Monday, Nuland said Ankara could be brought in from the cold on the F-35 project if it resolved the spat, after Türkiye was booted from the program in 2019 over its acquisition of the S-400 from Russia.

war criminals....

“Some of the very governments that announced they will cut off funds to UNRWA over these allegations have, in the meantime, continued to arm Israeli forces despite overwhelming evidence that these arms are used to commit war crimes.”

losing or stalemating, the american military industrial complex is in front.......

Scott Ritter is wrong

WHAT FOLLOWS IS GUS OWN VIEWS ON THE “SITUATIONS”…

Scott Ritter is very good. He can demonstrate with a few sentences how the US military and the US administration are incompetent and stupid in their knee-jerk responses TO THE WHATEVER…

Scott is on the money… The US military is woeful. but why?

The US military is huge and strong, but USELESS… It acts like a dumb/dumb, but why? WHY?

Imagine that over 20 years, the US military shipped about one trillion dollar worth of equipment to Afghanistan — and when the Americans decamped, they left about 500 billion dollar worth of equipment behind! How dumb is that? 

forgetting the russians.....

An epochal anniversary from the annals of modern history on Saturday remains a living memory for the Russian people. The Siege of Leningrad, arguably the most gruesome episode of the Second World War, which lasted for 900 days, was finally broken by the Soviet Red Army on Jan. 27, 1944, 80 years ago.

hyper-imperialism is dying: come to term with it.....

“The West is in danger,” warned Argentina’s new president, Javier Milei at this year’s World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland. 

In his dangerously appealing style, Milei blamed “collectivism” – that is, social welfare, taxes and the state – as the “root cause” of the world’s problems, leading to widespread impoverishment. 

 

détente....

Former Foreign Ministers Bob Carr and Gareth Evans, other former Cabinet Ministers, former State Premiers, a Nobel Laureate, diplomats, writers, academics and human rights advocates are among 50 Australians supporting an appeal to establish détente between the United States of America and the People’s Republic of China.

‘Détente’ – meaning an easing of hostility or strained relations — was the policy struck between the USA and the Soviet Union in the 1970s that led to arms control agreements and political understandings between the superpowers. It was critical to averting the escalating danger of nuclear war at that time.

The Hon Bob Carr, Australia’s Foreign Minister 2012-13 and longest-serving NSW Premier, said:

zionistic histrionics....

The powerful reach of the Zionist lobby in Australia has been on display the past few weeks, with news that lobbyists pressured ABC executives leading to the sacking of ABC journalist Antoinette Lattouf for sharing information from Human Rights Watch on her social media. 

 

Joel Jenkins reports.

 

 

As the story of her unfair dismissal became global news, it seemed the pressure from transnational Zionist lobby groups didn’t rest with the media and government, and in fact, was a multi-sector, multi-tentacled lobbying army that is working to threaten the livelihoods of those who possess public views that support the people of Gaza under the charge of antisemitism. 

enough is enough.....

The International Court of Justice has responded rather toothlessly to South Africa’s appeal to the Genocide Convention. In less than a month, a similar result can be expected when Britain’s Royal Courts of Justice hear for Julian Assange’s last appeal against extradition to the United States.

and undertakers.....

There are currently 880,000 people serving in Ukraine’s armed forces, according to President Vladimir Zelensky, who insisted that Kiev wants to mobilize even more troops, primarily males who left the country after the start of the conflict with Russia.

Just last month, Zelensky claimed that Kiev’s ground forces numbered over 600,000 service personnel, while in February 2022, when Russia launched its offensive, the Ukrainian army officially had only about 260,000 servicemen.

In an interview with the German public channel ARD news broadcast on Monday, the Ukrainian leader stated that Kiev now has “a million-strong army,” adding that there are also over 30 million people who are working in the country right now, one million of whom are employed in the defense and security sectors.

further collective punishment, australia among them....

Israel has for years been determined to cut aid to the refugees both in Gaza and the West Bank.

non-unanimous democracy in europe: la mère michel or l'amer michel*.......

European Council president Charles Michel has abandoned plans to contest a seat in the upcoming European Parliament elections in June. This comes amid suggestions that doing so could have led Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, a critic of aid to Ukraine, to replace him as EU Council chief.

Michel, previously Belgium’s prime minister, announced his intention to stand as an MEP for his home country three weeks ago. If he, as was widely expected, had been elected, he would have been required to leave his EU role before the official end of his term in late November.

macron is implementing far right policies....

Le Pen has repeatedly declared her admiration for Vladimir Putin and her support for his policies, despite the Russian regime's repeated violations of human rights and international law. She only truly began shifting her position after the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

See "The Crazies" on this site to let you know Putin did not "have a choice"...

Passing a law at costs, including seeing a large part of it ruled as unconstitutional, is fraught with consequences. Only the far-right Rassemblement National has emerged victorious from this process.
