Malaysia Airlines plane crash: How
do we deal with a pathological
liar like Vladimir Putin?

Telegraph [UK], by Con Coughlin

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/18/2014 7:43:42 AM

We should not be surprised that Moscow is categorically rejecting the accusation that it was responsible for the Malaysian airline disaster. For the default position of Russian President Vladimir Putin when confronted with some unpalatable truth is to tell a bare-faced lie. Remember how, when Russian Spetsnaz special forces were rampaging through Crimea earlier this year, Mr Putin told a Russian press conference that there were no Russian forces in Ukraine? Well, now we are dealing with a similar situation following the airline disaster, with the Russian leader trying to shift the blame for the crash on to anyone but

To answer your question, Con, I´d say the same way the US should be dealing with Obama, except we don´t seem to be very good at that.

We have dealt with two Presidents who are pathological liars..and a third one who wants to be. The office seems to attract them like a drug.

Dittos, OP. Putin, like Obama, has deceived many. Bush 43 looked into his eyes. I have cut him some slack in my posts. The deference on my part was more to the Russian people, who should rightfully retake a prominent place among the community of nations, and not to Putin himself. Many gave Putin leeway as he tried to deal with the rampant corruption and syndicated crime in the wake of Boris Yeltsin. They were all too aware of his KGB background, but hoped even that might help him get things under control. The motivation was not support for yet another iron-fisted dictator, but for a strong leader to help a nation get back on its feet.

However, autocrats eventually become intoxicated with their power - absolute power corrupts absolutely - and take actions that expose their intent. This event and others in eastern Ukraine may be such for Mr. Putin. They remind us that there may be more "Soviet" left in him than we have been willing to admit. We could look away from Crimea and justify actions there as the need to protect a critical warm water port. But no more. Not this.

If Mr. Putin wishes to re-establish himself as a patriot and not just another dictator, he must "come clean" in this matter and make things right for the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world.

Death of a religion:
Isis and the Yezidi
Telegraph [UK], by Sean Thomas    Original Article

They are scared of lettuce. They abhor pumpkins. They practise maybe the oldest religion in the world. And now, after at least 6,000 years, they are finally being exterminated, even as I write this. If you haven’t noticed this epochal crime--the raping and the slaughter--you’re not alone. Of late, the world has focused on the horrors of Gaza. When we’ve had time to acknowledge the Satanic cruelties of Isis, in Iraq, we’ve looked to the barbaric treatment of women, and Christians. Yet the genocide of the Yezidi, by Isis, is as evil as anything going on right now in the Middle

Israel has arrested a man from Hebron who it says has confessed that the operation to abduct and murder three Israeli teens in June was funded by Hamas in Gaza. Hussam Qawasmeh was arrested on 11 July in the Shuafat neighbourhood of East Jerusalem by an elite Israeli anti-terrorism unit who had been tipped off by intelligence from the Shabbak agency, Israeli police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told The Telegraph. Mr Qawasmeh, a resident of Hebron in the West Bank, was trying to obtain a fake passport in order to flee into Jordan, Mr Rosenfeld said. On Tuesday night, details about

Israel has conditionally agreed to extend a ceasefire that ended the month-long self-defense operation in Gaza, an Israeli official stated on condition of anonymity. Reuters reports Wednesday night that the official did not give details about the extension, only that it had been agreed upon. [Snip] Israel has yet to officially confirm its extension of the ceasefire agreement. In the meantime, Hamas has rejected the idea of an extension entirely. "Israel and Hamas will resume fighting immediately at the end of the 72-hour ceasefire, at 8:00 am Friday," a Hamas spokesperson stated Wednesday night.

Iraq crisis:

At least 30 people have been killed in an air strike in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, reports say. Sources told the BBC the target was a prison used as a base by fighters from the Islamic State (IS), a jihadist group that seized Mosul in June. Some of those killed were being held by the militants, they said, adding that a drone might have been used. Iraqi state TV reported that at least 60 militants were killed and about 300 detainees were able to escape. Kurdish Peshmerga forces were also reportedly shelling eastern districts of Mosul and an

Is the Gaza War another skirmish between Israel and the Arabs of Gaza, or are there regional factors at play here? In the video below, Arutz Sheva contributor Mark Langfan explains in the detail the rocket threat from Gaza, and claims that the conflict is a proxy war between two opposing de facto alliances of nations.

Baroness Warsi’s resignation
won’t promote peace in Gaza
Telegraph [UK], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2014 8:10:12 AM     Post Reply
It is rare for a minister to resign from the Government on a matter of principle; so Baroness Warsi’s decision to step down from her Foreign Office post in protest at the UK’s policy on Gaza merits greater attention than usual. She alleges that the even-handed position adopted by Britain towards the two combatants is “morally indefensible”. This suggests that Lady Warsi wanted far greater condemnation of Israel than has been forthcoming from David Cameron and his ministers. But how would that have helped matters? [Snip] She might have been on surer ground had she been equally condemnatory of Hamas

An unnamed "senior Israeli official" has claimed that a call between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State John Kerry was cut off on Sunday because Netanyahu had to call a "bereaved family" before the funeral of their son--presumably a soldier killed fighting in Gaza. [Snip] Walla! news´ diplomatic correspondent Amir Tibon claimed in a tweet that the prime minister and Kerry actually continued their conversation on Tuesday night, two days later. Previous reports had simply claimed that a call between the two had been abruptly cut off mid-way, with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki admitting to reporters

Yahoo! Whizzer! Chips galore! Boris is going to run for Parliament in 2015! He announced it in a classically Boris way today: gallons of charm, self-effacing, a cheeky grin, a “golly-I-know-I-said-I-probably-wouldn’t-but…” and then--wahey!--the promise that he probably would! You could find Boris standing over a dead body with a smoking gun and he’d still be able to convince us that it was “nothing to do with me, old chap.” And so, with his return to national politics, after years spent in the wilderness of national TV, Boris brings hope for good humour and red-meat Tory policies.

Barack Obama is bafflingly

Barack Obama is having a big "jawl" at the White House for 45 African heads of state this week, as well as hosting three-day summit designed to kick-start a more fruitful relationship between American and African businesses, but questions are already being asked whether this unprecedented get-together will create more than a lot of Washington DC traffic jams. It might seem churlish to criticise any effort to create a "win-win relationship for Africa, where US technology and finance helps release the latent potential of a continent which is home to six of the world´s fastest-growing economies.

US investment in Africa is fighting extremism there, US Secretary of State John Kerry has told the BBC. In an interview with BBC´s HARDtalk, Mr Kerry said stability from business projects was countering extremist ideologies and militant movements. He spoke as more than 40 African heads of state gathered in Washington at the first US-Africa Leaders´ Summit. Earlier on Tuesday, US companies pledged to invest $14bn (£8.3bn) in the continent. Mr Kerry told the BBC´s Zeinab Badawi that US investment in Africa was developing infrastructure, bringing wealth, and improving the standard of living of many Africans.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Israel and the Palestinians to take advantage of the Gaza truce to move towards broader negotiations. Mr Kerry told the BBC the situation could concentrate minds on the need to negotiate a "two-state solution". A 72-hour humanitarian truce is holding in Gaza, halting a four-week conflict that has claimed more than 1,900 lives. Israel and the Palestinians have sent delegations to Cairo to discuss the possibility of a longer-term truce.

ATLANTA — In the early 2000s, a young researcher at the Centers for Disease Control named Greg Millett set out to solve an epidemiological mystery. Nobody could explain why black Americans, particularly black gay men, had such high rates of HIV infection compared to the rest of the population. How were they putting themselves in so much danger? What were they doing differently from everyone else? Millett began with a survey of the published research, but that only seemed to raise more questions. Study after study seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: Black gay men take fewer risks in the

President Obama returned from his full-time job as the Democratic Party’s fundraiser-in-chief to host today’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. As he winged his way back to Washington from Kansas City aboard Air Force One, the president sat for an interview with editors of The Economist. The interview was pure Barack Obama, and it revealed him for what he is — an intellectually agile partisan fantasist. According to Mr. Obama, there really haven’t been that many problems, but those we may be experiencing are the fault not of his policies or leadership, but of the fact that he continues to have to contend

Sen. Pat Roberts fended off an aggressive challenger Tuesday in the Kansas Republican primary, dealing another blow to a national tea party movement that has targeted longtime Washington incumbents. Milton Wolf, 43, a Leawood radiologist making his first run for public office, failed to pull the upset in the race against Roberts, 78, whose political dates to the late 1960s, when he was a congressional aide. After surviving the primary, Roberts is a huge favorite to win his fourth, six-year term in November. Republicans enjoy a nearly 20 percentage-point advantage among registered voters and have won every U.S. Senate race

Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports. Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse. For a typical quick patient visit, Dr. Doug Gerard, a Connecticut internist, told NPR a private insurer would pay $100 while Medicare would pay around $80. But Obamacare plans are more likely to pay closer to $80, which Gerard
