Chemical weapon attacks aren’t the only reason to pay attention to Syria. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO When Syrian-American author and civil rights lawyer Alia Malek woke up to the images of Syrians dying from a chemical weapons attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun last week, her immediate response was pain, anger, and frustration. “But at the same time,” Malek told me, “there have been so many mornings like that in the last six years.” Since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011 more than 5 million Syrians have become refugees. Moreover, at least 470,000 Syrians have died, the vast majority by methods other than chemical weapons. Yet it was the chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun and the Trump administration’s retaliatory decision to launch 59 cruise missiles against a Syrian air base that resulted in heaps of media coverage. This all led Malek, who has chronicled the story of her family and her time in Syria in her new book, The Home that was Our Country: A Memoir of Syria, to question why “we object to the methods of slaughter, but not the overall slaughter that the Syrian people.“ Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

4 Dead, 15 Wounded After Sweden Attack, Xi & Trump Discuss Trade In Florida, Haley Says U.S. Ready To 'Do More' In Syria To Overthrow Bashar Assad. #SUBSCRIBE http://nypost.com/2017/04/07/russian-warship-heads-toward-us-destroyers-after-strike-on-syria/ A Russian warship has entered the eastern Mediterranean Sea Friday and is heading toward the two U.S. Navy destroyers that launched missile strikes into Syria, Fox News has learned. The Russian frigate, Admiral Grigorovich RFS-494, crossed through the Bosphorus Strait “a few hours ago” from the Black Sea, according to a U.S. defense official. "Tremendous progress" has been made in talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Donald Trump said on the summit's second and final day. "I think truly progress has been made," the US president said, declaring the relationship as "outstanding". The two men and their staff sat face to face for talks at Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida. Last year Mr Trump said China had "raped the US" and vowed to brand the superpower a currency manipulator. But at a welcome banquet it was all smiles and the good spirits appeared to continue on Friday as Mr Xi's visit concluded with a working lunch. On the night of the Chinese president's arrival, a US airstrike on an airbase in Syria was launched in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack. Russian diplomats discuss a wake-up call from Washington: in case the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un tests a missile or any nuclear projectile for one more time, a massive strike against state and military facilities in North Korea will be started, as Pravda.Ru sources in the Russian Foreign Ministry revealed. The U.S. job market has been a bastion of stability in an unstable world in recent years, with employers consistently adding jobs in the face of conflict and uncertainty both at home and overseas. There’s no reason to think that is changing, despite a mildly disappointing jobs report on Friday. STOCKHOLM -- A hijacked beer truck plowed into pedestrians at a central Stockholm department store Friday, killing four people, injuring 15 and sending screaming shoppers scattering in panic in what Sweden's prime minister called a terrorist attack. A nationwide manhunt was launched and one person was arrested following the latest use of a vehicle as a weapon in Europe. US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned Friday that the US "is prepared to do more" in response to Syria's use of chemical weapons. Speaking one day after the US launched strikes against the airbase that was home to warplanes that carried out a chemical attack against civilians earlier this week, Haley also slammed Russia for supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. President Trump reportedly threatened CNN's president last year in an email, with Trump warning "I always find a way to get even." Trump's email to CNN president Jeff Zucker, reported by the New York Times Wednesday, came after CNN panelists pressed Trump during a presidential debate about the "Access Hollywood" tape that showed him boasting about sexually assaulting women. GAZA, April 5, 2017 (WAFA) – For the second consecutive day, Israeli planes Wednesday sprayed poisonous pesticides on Palestinian agricultural lands on the Gaza border with Israel. WAFA correspondent said planes sprayed pesticides with the intention to eradicate all kinds of crops Gaza farmers had planted in their land adjacent to the borderline. Israel has unilaterally declared a large border area inside Gaza as a buffer zone and opens fire at Palestinians who try to enter it, including farmers who want to cultivate the land. Most of the border area is considered rich fertile farming land. Bible Prophecy predicts Babylon the Great (America) Being destroyed in one hour by Russia & Iran in world war 3. Donald Trump will be the last president of the united states before the return of Jesus Christ so save the scattered 12 tribes of Israelites and saved Gentiles from destruction.

U.S. President Barack Obama Signs Waiver Arming Rebels In Syria Leading to Russian Conflict, Explosion in Istanbul Turkey, U.S. Claims Russia Hacked Election for Trump + More. #SUBSCRIBE https://www.rt.com/usa/369702-obama-waiver-military-aid-syria-forces/ US President Barack Obama has ordered a waiver for restrictions on military aid for foreign forces and others in Syria, deeming it “essential to the national security interests” of the US to allow exceptions from provisions in the Arms Export Control Act. A White House press release Thursday announced that foreign fighters in Syria supporting US special operations “to combat terrorism in Syria” would be excused from restrictions on military assistance. President Obama’s waiver of restrictions on military aid to militant groups in Syria may bolster jihadist forces and ultimately lead to a direct confrontation between the US and Russia, security analyst and former Pentagon official Michael Maloof told RT. The US secretary of state has called on the Syrian government and its Russian backers to "show a little grace" as their forces close in on the remaining rebel-held area of the city of Aleppo. John Kerry was speaking after a meeting in Paris of governments that back the Syrian opposition. Latest reports from the city say the rebel enclave is being hit by repeated air and rocket strikes. Civilians are said to be streaming out of the city in large numbers. The Paris meeting on Syria was attended by officials from the US, Europe and some Arab countries. They renewed calls for the Syrian government and Russia, whose forces are backing the government of President Bashar al-Assad, to allow people to leave Aleppo. Aleppo was once Syria's largest city and its commercial and industrial hub before the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in 2011. It has been divided roughly in two since mid-2012. But in the past year, Syrian troops broke the deadlock with the help of Iranian-backed militias and Russian air strikes. Elsewhere in Syria, militants from the so-called Islamic State group have been advancing on Syrian government positions in the countryside around the ancient city of Palmyra. Western media, predictably, is painting the liberation of Aleppo from radical Islamist rebels as “the fall of Aleppo” or the “collapse” of Aleppo, as though Bashar Assad’s secular Syrian army driving out jihadi militants is a bad thing. So as America continues to decline in its ability to impact world affairs, Russia is working at building up its new empire. The words of John Thomas, based on a clear understanding of the scripture instruct us to be prepared: “The future movements of Russia are notable signs of the times, because they are predicted in the Scriptures of truth... When Russia makes its grand move for the building-up of its Image-empire, then let the reader know that the end of all things, as at present constituted, is at hand. The long-expected, but stealthy advent of the King of Israel, will be on the eve of becoming a fact; and salvation will be to those who not only looked for it, but have trimmed their lamps by believing the gospel of the kingdom unto the obedience of faith, and the perfection thereof in "fruits meet for repentance"” Added to which we give our Lord Jesus Christ the last word:

Russian President Vladimir Putin Condemns Allegations, Haley Presses Russia While Tillerson Wants To Remove Syria's President Bashar Assad. #SUBSCRIBE http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/788960/Vladimir-Putin-Russia-threatnes-Donald-Trump-with-negative-consequences-Syria-Assad RUSSIA has warned the United States to avoid launching strikes against President Assad’s regime or they could face “consequences”. In response to a question on whether President Donald Trump may launch attacks in Syria, Russia’s deputy UN envoy Vladimir Safronkov said: “Think about negative consequences”. He added: "We have to think about negative consequences, negative consequences, and all the responsibility if military action occurred will be on shoulders of those who initiated such doubtful and tragic enterprise." When asked what those negative consequences could be, he said: "Look at Iraq, look at Libya." The warning follows President Trump’s passionate speech at the White House following the Syria gas attack on Tuesday. The US has since launched more than 50 Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian airfield from which the suspected chemical attack was launched. The strike was launched at 8:45 p.m. ET, targeting the airfield's hangers, aircraft, runways, and fuel storage areas – just after Trump had met with the Chinese leader Xi Jinping. The US strike caused “losses”, according to a Syrian military source, but numbers are yet to be confirmed. Responding to the attack, President Trump held an impromptu press conference and said: “Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the military airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. “It is in vital national security interests of the United States to prevent the spread and use of chemical weapons.” The Pentagon has confirmed it used a hotline for minimising the risk of aerial combat between US and Russian jets in eastern Syria to alert Russia of the strike against its Syrian client. The Russians are sure to have routed that warning to Assad, raising immediate questions about what the strike will have accomplished, and also signalling that the US does not seek escalation. Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said: “Russian forces were notified in advance of the strike using the established deconfliction line. US military planners took precautions to minimise risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield." Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham, both armed services committee hawks who have been sharply critical of Trump have praised President Trump for the attacks. In a joint statement, they said: "We salute the skill and professionalism of the US armed forces who carried out tonight’s strikes in Syria. Acting on the orders of their commander-in-chief, they have sent an important message: the United States will no longer stand idly by as Assad, aided and abetted by Putin’s Russia, slaughters innocent Syrians with chemical weapons and barrel bombs." Moments before Trump launched air-strikes in Syria, the US military confirmed they are studying military options in Syria and President Trump said “something should happen”. As he travelled to Florida to meet the Chinese leader Xi Jinping, Mr Trump suggested he may be taking a stronger stance against Assad, an ally of Iran and Russia. Bible Prophecy predicts Babylon the Great (America) Being destroyed in one hour by Russia & Iran in world war 3. Donald Trump will be the last president of the united states before the return of Jesus Christ so save the scattered 12 tribes of Israelites and saved Gentiles from destruction.

Rudy Giuliani Backs U.S. Embassy Move To Jerusalem, Russia Warns Donald Trump Of Setting Up Safe Zones In Syria, Mexican President Phones Trump, Human-Pig Hybrids, + More. http://www.jpost.com/American-Politics/Giuliani-to-JPost-Trump-backs-Jerusalem-embassy-move-but-reality-is-complex-479552 China has deployed a brigade of Dongfeng-41 nuclear ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) systems near the Amur River, which separates China from Russia’s Far East. China’s Global Times describes the deployment, and also gives some insight into the what China’s leadership thinks: Giuliani, who is serving as an unofficial adviser on cybersecurity for the Trump administration, told Fox News earlier this week that he might pass a message of friendship from the US president to Netanyahu during his time in Israel. Regarding the White House's lack of a comment on Tuesday to the Israeli government's announcement of plans to build 2,500 additional housing units beyond the Green Line, mostly in the large settlement blocs, Giuliani noted that this was “different than the response that used to happen, a couple of weeks ago, which was almost uniform condemnation of Israel” any time there were announcements about settlement construction. Appearing Monday morning on “Fox and Friends,” Giuliani was asked whether he will be relaying a message to Netanyahu from Trump during a business trip starting that evening. Amid the diplomatic showdown over President Trump’s order to build a border wall — and who should pay for it — Mr. Trump and President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico spoke by telephone for an hour on Friday and agreed to proceed with negotiations on a range of bilateral issues, both leaders said. National Geographic reports the disturbing new experiment involved pig embryos injected with human cells. Researchers at Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California said they implanted the living pig-human embryos, or chimeras, in adult pigs’ wombs and allowed them to grow between three and four weeks. President Donald Trump's push to create safe zones in Syria could force him to make some risky decisions about how far to go to protect refugees, including shooting down Syrian or Russian aircraft or committing thousands of U.S. troops, experts said. Trump said on Wednesday he "will absolutely do safe zones in Syria" for refugees fleeing violence. According to a document seen by Reuters, he is expected in the coming days to order the Pentagon and the State Department to draft a plan to create such zones in Syria and nearby nations. President Trump called Madonna "disgusting" during an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday, responding to Madonna's speech during the Washington D.C. Women's March. The singer said she's thought about "blowing up the White House." Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain will meet President Trump on Friday in Washington for what could be an episode of “The Odd Couple”: The Stiff Headmistress meets the Great Salesman. The billionaire’s election victory has highlighted the prospect he could order the US to pull out of a nuclear pact which Barack Obama signed in 2015. In September last year, Trump said: “Any commander-in-chief worthy of defending this nation should be prepared to stand up on 20 January 2017 (inauguration day) and rip to shreds this catastrophic deal.” “Such a war would mean the destruction of the Zionist regime (Israel) … and will engulf the whole region and could lead to a world war.” Bible Prophecy predicts Babylon the Great (America) Being destroyed in one hour by Russia & Iran in world war 3. Donald Trump will be the last president of the united states before the return of Jesus Christ so save the scattered 12 tribes of Israelites and saved Gentiles from destruction.

Russian Spokesman Warns U.S. Over Escalating Tensions In Syria, Washington Post Admits Russia Hacking Fake News, Chicago Largest Crime Rate In Years + More #SUBSCRIBE http://www.cbsnews.com/news/chicago-murders-shootings-2016-more-than-new-york-city-los-angeles-combined/ Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has accused Barack Obama of attempting to “delegitimise” Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration later this month. Speaking from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, the whistleblower suggested the incumbent US President was trying to derail Mr Trump’s ascent to the White House by accusing Russia of interfering in the election. The 45-year-old Australian told Fox News the Obama administration was “trying to delegitimise the Trump administration as it goes into the White House". “They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” he added. Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to be winning in Syria. But, Putin is not winning in Syria. Syria is not the Crimea, or East Ukraine where Russia’s prizes are territorially and ethnically contiguous with Mother Russia. Syria is disconnected territorially and ethnically from Russia. Hence, Putin is strategically drowning in Syria because he has no Syrian end-game where Russia might exit after a Russian “victory” without ceding his hard-won Syrian trophy to Iran. With Iran effectively controlling the territorial contiguity of Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, Putin, by "winning," will have turned Iran into an Islamic superpower that is a grave strategic danger to Russia itself. And, while Aleppo has been reduced to rubble and the Syrian rebels are losing, they still have not quite lost. Therefore, Putin still has much more massacres of Syrian Sunnis ahead before he blunders into “winning” and crowning Iran with its new empire at Russia’s cost. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's "clear warning" to North Korea shows he is aware of the urgency of the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear program and will not waver from a policy of sanctions against the isolated country, South Korea said on Tuesday. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Sunday his nuclear-capable country was close to test-launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), raising the prospect of putting parts of the United States in range. Trump dismissed the claim, saying on Twitter: "It won't happen." South Korea's Foreign Ministry said Trump's comment, his first mention of the North Korean nuclear issue since the U.S. election in November, could be interpreted as a "clear warning" to the North. It was well established in 2016 that most things that go wrong in the world are Russia’s fault — but last week the Washington Post decided to really close the year out with a bang. The Post, which openly aspires to become the “new paper of record,” published a story claiming that Russian hackers penetrated the US power grid through a utility in Vermont. DONALD Trump has had a stark warning from the Iranian defence minister who says the President-elect could trigger a world war if he provokes country’s in the Middle East. The billionaire’s election victory has highlighted the prospect he could order the US to pull out of a nuclear pact which Barack Obama signed in 2015. Trump was very critical of the agreement which allowed Iran to have sanctions lifted on its oil and industry finance in return for the country having its nuclear program limited. In September last year, Trump said: “Any commander-in-chief worthy of defending this nation should be prepared to stand up on 20 January 2017 (inauguration day) and rip to shreds this catastrophic deal.” “Considering Trump’s character and that he measures the cost of everything in dollars, it does not seem likely that he would take strong action against our country. “Enemies may want to impose a war on us based on false calculations and only taking into consideration their material capabilities… “Such a war would mean the destruction of the Zionist regime (Israel) … and will engulf the whole region and could lead to a world war.” Netanyahu is charged with corruption. Chicago has the most crimes since 1996 in 2016. Bible prophecy unfolding.

Iran Tests Russian Made S-300 Missiles, U.S. Troops In Syria Fighting ISIS, Russia To Meet With Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu About Iran Nuclear Weapon Development, + More. #SUBSCRIBE https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/video-us-troops-spotted-armored-convoy-illegally-inside-manbij-syria/ US troops were spotted in a convoy of armored vehicles illegally in the Syrian city of Manbij on Saturday. The US armored vehicles will be concentrated in northern Manbij to conduct the demarcation between the forces of the Manbij Military Council and Euphrates Shield troops. Russia’s Air Force and special op’s units were part of the operation to liberate the iconic Syrian city of Palmyra from Islamic State terrorists earlier this week, Col. Gen. Andrey Kartapolov, commander of the Russian forces in Syria, also highlighted the role of Russia’s air force in the operation. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Thursday to voice opposition to what the Israeli leader charged were Iran's attempts to establish a permanent military foothold in Syria. Iran successfully tested a Russian-made missile defense system, the official Iranian news outlets reported Saturday. The IRNA news agency said the military launched the sophisticated S-300 system during a recent military exercise named Damvand, named after Iran's highest mountain. State TV posted videos online of the missiles being launched from the back of trucks in Iran's central desert. Twenty-one civilians were killed in nine separate strikes by the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State in Iraq and Syria between November and January, the U.S. military said on Saturday. The U.S. military is deepening its involvement in Yemen, with escalating counterterrorism strikes targeting an al-Qaeda affiliate that’s gained ground in the chaos of the country’s civil war. U.S. forces carried out more than 30 strikes by airplanes and drones in the past week in southern and central provinces, said Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. The strikes followed the first commando operation Donald Trump approved as president, a Jan. 28 raid against the terrorist group by the Navy’s SEAL Team 6 in which a U.S. serviceman was killed. The billionaire’s election victory has highlighted the prospect he could order the US to pull out of a nuclear pact which Barack Obama signed in 2015. Trump was very critical of the agreement which allowed Iran to have sanctions lifted on its oil and industry finance in return for the country having its nuclear program limited.

Donald Trump will be the last president of the united states before the return of Jesus Christ so save the scattered 12 tribes of Israelites and saved Gentiles from destruction. When President Trump's new travel ban comes out, many think it may (and should) exclude Iraq. That is because the United States continues to fight a war there -- even if it doesn't act like it. US forces are currently in Iraq, serving alongside Iraqis whose help America needs if it is to, as President Trump has urged, "win" its wars again. A blanket ban on residents of seven majority-Muslim nations could not and did not pass legal muster when it went into effect the first weekend of the Trump presidency.

Russia Warns Of Anti-Defense Missile System In Korea, North Korea Nuclear Test May Be Imminent, Trump Associates Tied To Russia, Japan Military Planning Drills, + More. #SUBSCRIBE http://www.arabnews.com/node/1076231/world White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer snapped at a female reporter on Tuesday over a question about the administration's image, telling the veteran White House correspondent to "stop shaking your head" — a snide comment that drew rebuke from Hillary Clinton and several prominent women journalists. Spicer got into a heated exchange with American Urban Radio Networks' correspondent April Ryan at the White House press briefing after the reporter asked how President Donald Trump's administration would work to repair its image. White House staff plan on skipping this year's White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner in "solidarity" with President Trump, who has announced he won't attend the annual event this year, the organization announced Tuesday evening. A rant by Los Angeles Congresswoman Maxine Waters that sparked controversy over comments made by Bill O’Reilly has gone viral after the long-term lawmaker appeared to suggest supporters of President Donald Trump were less patriotic than black voters. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Monday that he has not seen any evidence that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower, but that President Trump will have access to any documents on the matter because wiretapping creates a paper trail. The Trump administration sought to block former acting attorney general Sally Yates from testifying in the House investigation of possible links between Russian officials and Donald Trump’s campaign, according to letters provided to The Washington Post. The effort to keep Yates from testifying has further angered Democrats, who have accused Republicans of trying to damage the inquiry. According to the letters, the Justice Department notified Yates earlier this month that the administration considers her possible testimony — including on the ouster of former national security adviser Michael Flynn for his contacts with the Russian ambassador — to be off-limits in a congressional hearing because the topics are covered by attorney-client privilege or the presidential communication privilege. Russia has warned the US deployment of an anti-missile system will spark a new arms race and was a threat to world security designed to contain Russia and China. The US has deployed its THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile system in South Korea in response to North Korea's increasingly provocative ballistic missile tests. U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said on Wednesday that Syria's President Bashar al-Assad is a "big hindrance in trying to move forward" to find an end to the country's six-year conflict. U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley stated that she is aiming to change the culture at the U.N., and she has started by defending the international community’s favorite punching bag — Israel. At an event with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) yesterday, Haley described the U.N.’s animus toward Israel as “ridiculous” and confirmed that “the days of Israel-bashing are over,” drawing loud applause: Bible Prophecy predicts Babylon the Great (America) Being destroyed in one hour by Russia & Iran in world war 3. Donald Trump will be the last president of the united states before the return of Jesus Christ so save the scattered 12 tribes of Israelites and saved Gentiles from destruction. JAPAN is paving the way for war against North Korea by ushering in new laws allowing the country to launch pre-emptive strikes after despot Kim Jong-un angered the region with missile tests. Hiroshi Imazu, the head of Japan’s ruling party, told The Washington Post: “Japan can’t just wait until its destroyed. It’s legally possible for Japan to strike an enemy base that’s launching a missile at us, but we don’t have the equipment or capability.”

"Assad can stay." "Syrians must determine their future." St. Petersburg bombed. Chemical attack in Syria. "Assad must go." "We must determine Syrians' future." Oh, what a difference a day makes. In a repeat of 2013, a trumped-up jihadi production special of chemical weapons blamed on Assad has pushed Trump to respond in a way that even Obama didn't. According to CNN, he finally "became president" this week when he ordered the U.S. military to launch 29 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase. War hawks on the left and right rejoiced. America's allies rejoiced. Israel wept tears of joy. And yet... Over half the missiles missed their targets (for reasons no one knows at this time). The base was practically empty. The damage was insignificant. Russia closed down the deconfliction phone lines and is now beefing up air defense in Syria. In other words, the event seems to have been more spectacle than substance. The Trump administration is reserving the right to do it again, but will they really risk putting Russia's missile defenses to the test? Or has Trump's attack had the paradoxical effect of making a future attack even less likely? This week on Behind the Headlines, Sott editors went behind the Trump-lines get to the bottom of the latest episode of Trump Being Trump. Prepare to laugh, cry, be horrified, and disturbingly entertained. It's never a dull day in Trumpland.

Russia's Lavrov Claims U.S. Stalling Negotations In Syria, Devil Horns Placed on "Satan" Donald Trump on Time Magazine Cover, + More. #SUBSCRIBE https://www.rt.com/news/369613-kerry-lavrov-syria-talks/ US Secretary of State John Kerry said that Moscow and Washington are working on a possible agreement on Syria, including the issue of Aleppo. Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held talks in the German city of Hamburg on the sidelines of an OSCE meeting. The meeting lasted about 10 to 15 minutes, according to media reports. When asked whether he is certain of an agreement being reached, Kerry said: “We have to wait for certain feedback and input, but we are working on something.” The latest news of a possible agreement comes a day after the Syrian Army liberated 15 more eastern Aleppo neighborhoods and evacuated 1,200 residents from the city, according to the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria. The Syrian army has stopped all military actions in Aleppo and is focusing efforts on evacuating residents, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Thursday. "This is the largest ever evacuation of eastern Aleppo residents, with close to 5,000 residents being moved," Lavrov told reporters at the summit of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, or OSCE, in Hamburg, Germany. Lavrov's words were echoed by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, who called this the "biggest operation for civilian evacuation." CNN crews on the ground in Aleppo could still hear mortar rounds going off despite the announcement. China needs more nuclear weapons to deal with Donald Trump should the US treat Beijing unacceptably, according to a government mouthpiece newspaper. An editorial in the pro-government Global Times said China should 'significantly' increase military spending and build more nuclear weapons as a response to comments made by the President-elect Donald Trump on the country's policies. China should 'build more strategic nuclear arms and accelerate the deployment of the DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile' to protect its interests, should Trump attempt to corner the country in an 'unacceptable way', it said. The direct stakes in whether the Trump administration adheres to the agreement that restricts the Iranian nuclear program are important enough, in terms of nuclear nonproliferation. Also important are the opportunities to build on that agreement constructively to address problems of concern to both Iran and the United States. But at stake as well, as the new administration makes policy toward Iran, is the need to avoid a potentially disastrous turn, highly costly to U.S. interests, in the U.S.-Iranian relationship. Because Putin is standing up against Western aggression – not only in Ukraine, but also in Syria and Iran. Ongoing Western attempts to destabilize these and other countries are just the most recent examples of a decades-old pattern of aggression. The long-term goal: Total destruction of traditional nations and values, and the creation of a New World Order global dictatorship. Repeatedly we are told in Rev. 17&18 that Babylon the Great will be totally destroyed by a fire that will cause the mourners to stand at a great distance . What kind of fire would cause this? What kind of fire would result in a land that could no longer be inhabited? How many Chernobyls and Fukushimas would be the result of sudden nuclear attack on our country? Yes, it looks like America is Babylon the Great and that sometime in the future nuclear destruction will be the price we pay for rejecting God. Donald Trump will lead to America's Economic Collapse, Bring in the elite New World Order spoken of through the years. We have a further identification of who it is that COMES AGAINST AMERICA, that LIES TO THE UTTERMOST NORTH OVER THE POLES. It is THE KINGS OF THE MEDES. Now if you will study the history books, you will find the MEDES inhabited and dwelt in the NORTHERN MOUNTAINS TO THE NORTH OF ISRAEL. They went into TURKEY, GEORGIA, THE UKRAINE, RUSSIA, ETC. They went EXACTLY where the PRIME ENEMY OF AMERICA IS RIGHT NOW. The 10 Kings that destroy her, that hate her, that make HER DESOLATE, MUST BE THE SAME 'NORTHERN ASSEMBLY OF NATIONS" of Jeremiah and Isaiah that MAKE BABYLON DESOLATE. Indeed, Bible prophecy shall come to pass exactly as written.

Watch how the Syrian civil war became the mess it is today. After four-plus years of fighting, Syria's war has killed at least hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions. And, though it started as a civil war, it's become much more than that. It's a proxy war that has divided much of the Middle East, and has drawn in both Russia and the United States.

Markets, Mixed, Watch for Progress on Syria Wall Street appeared to pause, after six consecutive days of gains, after President Obama pledged to explore a diplomatic plan to resolve the Syrian crisis. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/12/business/daily-stock-market-activity.html?partner=rss&emc=rss U.N. Rights Panel Cites Evidence of War Crimes by Both Sides in Syria As the United States and Russia searched for a diplomatic solution to the crisis over Syria's chemical weapons, a four-person United Nations rights panel presented detailed evidence of what it said were war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by pro-government forces and, to a lesser extent, rebels in the 30-month-old conflict. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/12/world/middleeast/united-nations-panel-cites-evidence-of-war-crimes-in-syria.html?partner=rss&emc=rss How would Syria's chemical weapons handover work? Any plan to put Syria's chemical weapon stockpiles under international control will face immense challenges,with no guarantee that President Bashar Assad will hand over his entire arsenal to inspectors. But experts say the Russian-brokered proposal now being considered by the United Nations, the White House and Congress may be the world's best shot at reducing the threat of another chemical attack from Damascus or the danger of the weapons falling into the hands of extremists. http://feeds.nbcnews.com/c/35002/f/663303/s/3117e8fd/sc/20/l/0Lworldnews0Bnbcnews0N0C0Inews0C20A130C0A90C10A0C20A423150A0Ehow0Ewould0Esyrias0Echemical0Eweapons0Ehandover0Ework0Dlite/story01.htm Planned as Call to Act, Obama's Speech Became a Plea for Time Members on both sides of Capitol Hill offered a collective sigh of relief as they returned to work after President Obama let them off the hook for a vote on military action in Syria, postponing a political confrontation that no one in Washington wants to have. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/12/world/obama-syria.html?partner=rss&emc=rss Stock futures dip modestly after six-day rally, Obama speech Stock futures edged lower as the S&P 500 appeared set to pause after six straight days of gains, after President Barack Obama pledged to explore Russia's diplomatic plan to remove chemical weapons from Syria. Obama said a Russian offer to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to place his government's chemical weapons under international control increased the odds of putting off a limited military strike that he is considering, but voiced skepticism about the plan. http://news.yahoo.com/stock-futures-flat-six-day-run-obama-speech-112513509--sector.html http://www.wochit.com
