See How Russia Can Counter the US's New 'Miracle Weapons'

Last week, The Washington Post ran an op-ed entitled "The exotic new weapons the Pentagon wants to deter Russia and China." Pentagon officials, the piece explained, have begun talking openly about the artificial intelligence and robotics-assisted super soldiers meant to combat the Russian and Chinese militaries. But what is Russia's response?

New Russian tanks sent to Syria have been able to survive hits from US-made TOW missiles, although their anti-missile counter-measures have yet to be seen in combat.

US-backed Proxies Use Ceasefire in Syria to 'Regroup, Rearm and Prepare'

The cessation of hostilities in Syria almost certainly does not mean the end of the Syrian war, as US, Turkish and Saudi proxies are using the timeout to regroup, rearm and prepare, according to former MI6 agent and EU foreign policy adviser Alastair Crooke.

The Syrian ceasefire deal, brokered between the US and Russia, almost certainly will not last long and definitely does not mean the end of the war on the ground, Alastair Crooke, former MI6 agent, who was Middle East advisor to Javier Solana, High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy of the European Union (CFSP) from 1997 to 2003, said in a lengthy interview with the RT news channel.

See Why Dollar is pretty high at Parallel Market

Please let me explain to those of us who don't understand Economic terms. Dollar has not increased since Buhari became president.
1. Dollar is not our currency so dollar should not be our business.
2. Our problem is not d government but our problem is our importers and consumers.
3. Naira has remained at 197 naira to 1 dollar since Buhari became president.
4. Buhari has promised not to devalue the Naira and he has maintained that promise.
5. Both at CBN and at interbank rates, dollar has remained 197.
6. However because we are too lazy to produce what we use in Nigeria we import even toothpicks and matches.

Erdogan, Genocide, and ISIS – The Sultan is Doomed

By Michael Collins
Turkish President Recep Teyyip Erdogan’s attempts to demonize the Syrian Kurd’s YPG army and threaten and bully the United States are having the net effect of creating a powerful movement for his removal based on a rationale that will encourage the public in the United States and Europe to forget the real culprits in the tragic attack on Syria and focus on charges of genocide leveled against ISIS. The genocide charge will be tied to Erdogan as a result of his documented support for ISIS and ultimately doom his increasingly dictatorial rule of Turkey. Rather than divert the attention of Turks from his crimes and massive negligence as a means to preserve his power, Erdogan’s castigation of the Kurds and, more significantly, his public blackmail of the U.S. will spell his doom in the near future.
