State department acknowledges Damascus already owned attack helicopters, cited by Hillary Clinton as escalating violence

The US state department has acknowledged that Russian helicopters it claimed had been sent recently to the Syrian regime were, in fact, refurbished ones already owned by Damascus.

Secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, claimed on Tuesday that "the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria".

The state department admitted details had been omitted from Clinton's speech in which she accused Russia of escalating the violent situation in Syria. But spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said: "Whether they are new or they are refurbished, the concern remains that they will be used for the exact same purpose that the current helicopters in Syria are being used, and that is to kill civilians.

Obama bickers with "heckler" who accuses him of favouring immigrant workers to Americans

A reporter for a conservative news website heckled Obama as he announced his new immigration policy on Friday, clearly angering the president.

During Obama's speech, Neil Munro, an Irish-born reporter for the Daily Caller, yelled: 'Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?'

The president, who was speaking in the White House's Rose Garden, stumbled before placing up his hand in Mr Munro's direction and responding: 'Not while I'm speaking.'

Invasion in the making: U.S. military completes initial planning for Syria

The U.S. military has completed its own planning for how American troops would conduct a variety of operations against Syria, or to assist neighboring countries in the event action was ordered, officials tell CNN.

In recent weeks, the Pentagon has finalized its assessment of what types of units would be needed, how many troops, and even the cost of certain potential operations, officials tell CNN.

Multiple military officials say initial planning is complete with a full understanding of what types of troops and units would be needed. This has been done so that if President Obama were to ask for options the military would be ready to present them. But officials say additional detailed work would have to be done before forces could be deployed.

The planning comes as the U.S. has become increasingly concerned that the violence in Syria is verging on civil war. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the recent series of bombings have heightened the worry.

Dempsey said it reminded him of the escalating violence during the Iraq war.

Propaganda reminiscent of Cold War: US says Russian-made weapons are killing Syrians on 'an hourly basis'

The US has alleged that Russian-made weapons are killing Syrians on "an hourly basis" as the feud between Washington and Moscow over the arming of the Assad regime intensified Wednesday.

In the face of a strong denial from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, stood by her assertion that Russian attack helicopters are on their way to Syria in a move that would "escalate the conflict quite dramatically".

The state department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, repeated the claim and ratcheted up the confrontation by saying that the Russians have also been resupplying arms used against the civilian population.

"On a daily basis, on an hourly basis, we are seeing Russian- and Soviet-made weaponry used against civilians in towns all across Syria," she said.

Comment: Lies and more lies, to hide the fact that the genocide in Syria is being directed by Western secret agencies and the blessings of the real Axis of Evil. And while the number of innocent people murdered in Syria is increasing by the day, the media war that the US is waging, makes victims by the second, those who believe these lies and are dead to the reality of the Syrian people's suffering and enemies.

Responding to claims made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Foreign Minister stated that Russia complies with international law and is merely fulfilling previous obligations with Syria related to air-defense systems.

Speaking in Tehran on Wednesday, Lavrov was unequivocal about Russia's military trade relationship with Syria, which is presently involved in protracted hostilities between pro-government and opposition forces.

"I already said during one of the news conference in Moscow several days ago that we are now finishing the fulfillment of contracts that were signed and paid for a long time ago. All of (the contracts) are solely for means of air defense," Lavrov told reporters in Tehran after talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi.

Russia supplies Syria "only with something that Syria would need in the event of an armed attack on it from without," the minister added.

March of the drones: Map reveals 66 military bases for unmanned aircraft on American soil... and 22 more on the way

The US military operated 66 bases for unmanned drone aircraft on American soil and has 22 more planned across the country.

A new map released by Public Intelligence, a nonprofit group dedicated publishing public government data, reveals the ever-growing footprint of the Department of Defense's newest weapon.

The bases span the entire country -- 33 states either have a base already or are slated to have one.

The existence of a base doesn't necessarily mean drones are stationed there.

Wired Magazine reports some bases are remote cockpits, where soldiers fly the unmanned craft in the skies over Yemen and Afghanistan. Others are training facilities for prospective drone pilots. Others serve as depots where servicemen analyses data the remote-controlled spy planes bring back.

Russia sends troops to Syria


Russia is sending armed troops to Syria amid escalating violence there, United States military officials told NBC News Friday, in a move certain to frustrate Western efforts to put pressure on the regime of President Bashir Assad.

Moscow has sent a ship carrying a small contingent of combat forces to guard Russia's deep-water port and military base at the Syrian city of Tartus, the US officials said.

The U.S. officials also said Russia has not sent additional attack helicopters to the Syrian government, but replacement parts for the Russian helicopters the Syrians are already flying.

It comes after the conflict was declared by France on Wednesday to be a full-blown civil war.

Comment: "Russia and China [a few key targets after Syria and Iran], both permanent members of the U.N. Security Council with veto power, frustrated attempts [manipulation] by key Western figures, including [Psychopathic] Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to enforce a United Nations peace [overthrow] plan brokered by special envoy Kofi Annan."

How often do we have to hear more propaganda and manipulation? It's obvious that Syria is not a threat to anyone, so Western Governments turn this into a humanitarian crusade to overthrow the current Assad government, which will leave the door open for bastardizing Iran, and while Russia and China attempt to defend Syria, they will continue to be bastardized by Western media. Soon, I expect the United States will claim it is being bullied by Russia and China over the whole affair.

It sounds like Russia is saying: We allow what will be to be.

While the West sounds like: Once we put in a new Government..

German Police Raids on Homes, Mosques Target Islamic Salafists

Berlin - German authorities launched a nationwide crackdown Thursday on an ultraconservative Islamic organization, raiding homes, meeting halls and mosques, while banning one related group and opening in an investigation of two others.

Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said he had banned the Salafist organization Millatu Ibrahim, saying that it has been calling on Muslims to fight against Germany's "constitutional order."

The raids, conducted by 850 police officers in seven of Germany's 16 states, focused on two other groups - DawaFFM and DWR, whose initials are the German abbreviation for "The True Religion" - to determine whether evidence exists to ban them as well.

Friedrich said a "comprehensive collection of evidence" had been seized - videos, laptops, cellphones and other things. "All these things will be evaluated over the coming days, and we will see to what extent the evidence is sufficient to ban the two organizations which are being investigated," he said.
