Saudi Arabia and Iran have taken steps towards indirect talks to
defuse tensions in the Middle East, with Riyadh asking Iraq and
Pakistan to speak with the Iranian leadership about de-escalation ..

...

Quite a positive regional development. And the Saudis seem to
understand that the US is a waning power in a precarious economic
situation. Atlanticist 'triumphalism' is long over.

.. further evidence that OPCW suppressed & altered findings on Douma
'chemical attack' .. A new cache of internal documents reveal that
members of the OPCW team tasked with probing the Douma "chemical attack"
protested the organization's final report on the incident, which they
said misrepresented their conclusions. ..

...

While the US is steadily declining, the Atlanticist-dominated intl
organisations like OPCW (and not only) turn to be increasinly lying and
cheating.

Turkey is going nuclear ..

.. The decades-long ambition to have Turkey's first nuclear energy
capability .. is finally to become a reality by 2023 thanks to the
Mersin Akkuyu project, developed jointly with Russia's Rosatom.
Turkey has a long-standing dream of going nuclear since the 1960s,
having ventured five different attempts, with almost all Western
companies including the Americans, Canadians, French, German and
Japanese. None of these initiatives - except the one now in progress
with the Russians - has resulted in any tangible progress ..
The 4800 MWe Akkuyu plant, sealed and vigorously pursued at the
highest levels by presidents Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Vladimir
Putin, is expected to have an operational life of 60 years ..

Japan, Brazil, and Argentina "went nuclear" decades ago, but are they
producing weapons?

Shesh, get it right, damn it. It’s the Great Red Banner Northern Fleet. Or
it was until 1991, anyway, which means until the end of the Cold War. Which
the Russkies lost and are still smarting about, which is why Oleg is here.

Avangard: Russia deploys hypersonic nuclear-capable missiles
Following years of tests, first missile unit equipped with Avangard
hypersonic glide vehicle enters combat duty.

.. The Avangard is capable of flying 27 times faster than the speed
of sound. .. Its ability to make sharp manoeuvres on its way to a
target will render missile defence useless. ..

.. Avangard is designed using new composite materials to withstand
temperatures of up to 2,000 Celsius (3,632 Fahrenheit) resulting from
a flight through the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds. ..

If the Russkies' super/hypersonic cruise missiles are so hot, then why do
they gloat about getting their hands on crashed sub-sonic Tomahawks?

Because learning more about the Tomahawks
enables them to better intercept / neutralize
the Tomahawks, that's why.

Seem to remember those missiles the USSR used to display through Red
Square that weren't really missiles.
I believe the US people who watched those displays used to have bets on
what was next out of the gate :)

The Afghanistan Fiasco
and the Decline and Fall of the American Military

A devastating investigative report .. relied on thousands of documents
to .. expose how the US government at the presidential level across
three administrations, acting in collaboration with the military brass
and civilian bureaucracy, deliberately and systematically lied
repeatedly to the public and media about the situation in Afghanistan.
Officials from the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have all
surged additional troops into Afghanistan while also regularly
overstating the "success" that the United States was attaining in
stabilizing and democratizing thecountry. While they were lying, the
senior officers and government officials understood clearly that the war
was, in fact, unwinnable. ..
