Iran Launches Missiles to
Punish ‘Terrorists’ in Syria

New York Times, by Thomas Erdbrink

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 6/18/2017 6:35:49 PM

Tehran - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps launched several midrange missiles from western Iran and struck targets in Syria on Sunday, aiming to punish “terrorists,” who committed last week’s attacks in Tehran, it said in a statement. The Guards Corp said it “targeted the headquarters and meeting place and suicide car assembly line” of “ISIS terrorists” in the province of Deir al-Zour, where Islamic State forces surround an estimated 200,000 people in a government-held section of the provincial capital of the same name. The Guards Corps said the strike, sending missiles flying over neighboring Iraq into Syria,

Comments:
The New York times sounds like the "official" news outlet in America for Iranian propaganda. Iran fires missiles over another sovereign state (Iraq), to hit what it claims are Daesh targets for their suicide attack within Tehran. No mention of civilian causalities that seem to immediately follow our strikes. Also, it is literally a warning shot across the bow to US, Israel and Saudi Arabia. 0bama´s treachery is paying off. Oh, a US jet fighter shot down Syrian warplane that bombed "our" rebel forces. The rules of engagement have changed.

North Korea accused U.S. authorities on Sunday of "mugging" its diplomats at the John F. Kennedy airport in New York, forcibly confiscating a diplomatic package which it said raised questions about the city as the seat of the United Nations. The North´s Foreign Ministry spokesman said a delegation of the North returning from a U.N. conference on the rights of persons with disabilities "was literally mugged" at the John F. Kennedy airport in "an illegal and heinous act of provocation." (Snip) "This clearly shows that the U.S. is a felonious and lawless gangster state," the spokesman said in comments carried by the North's official

Portugal has declared three days of mourning for the 62 victims of one of the country´s deadliest forest fires. Four children are among the victims, many of whom were found dead inside their cars as they tried to flee the central forested region of Pedrógão Grande. Hundreds of firefighters are continuing to tackle the blaze on several fronts. Prime Minister Antonio Costa called it "the greatest tragedy we have seen in recent years in terms of forest fires". He said it was thought to have been sparked by a lightning strike. Eight firefighters are among the more than 50 people injured in the fire, which is raging in several parts of a

Los Angeles - Stephen Furst, who played naive fraternity pledge Flounder in the hit movie Animal House, has died of complications from diabetes, his family said Saturday. Furst was 63. Furst died Friday at his home in Moorpark, Calif., north of Los Angeles, said his son, Nathan Furst. Furst played Kent "Flounder" Dorfman in the 1978 film that also starred John Belushi. Furst´s long list of credits included the 1980s medical drama St. Elsewhere, on which he played Dr. Elliot Axelrod. He played Vir Coto and was an occasional director on the 1990s sci-fi series Babylon 5. (Snip) "He was proudest of his family,

Trump lawyer: The president is not

A member of President Trump’s legal team said Sunday that Trump is not under investigation by the special counsel, an assessment at odds with a Washington Post report last week and seemingly with a tweet by Trump himself on Friday. “Let me be very clear here, as it has been since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction,” lawyer Jay Sekulow said on “Meet the Press.” The Post reported last week that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who was appointed to oversee the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election, is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a

The number one priority for any government has to be keeping its citizens safe, and the events of the last few months have rightly refocused minds on the question of Britain’s security. (Snip) Watching these debates, one cannot escape a powerful sense of irony: as ministers talk of the need to modernise our defences against terrorism, the most archaic of all our security systems, Trident, remains untouched. This despite it being wholly unfit as a response to the cyber attacks, climate change and weaponised cars and lorries which have proven themselves to be the biggest threats to our safety today.

A post-nuclear deal
strategy on Iran takes shape
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Michael Wilner    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 6/17/2017 11:09:46     Post Reply
The US Senate has decided almost unanimously to sanction Iran for its nuclear activities and human rights record in a move that suggests a new, unified and stronger stand against Tehran. The Senate´s near-unanimous decision on Thursday to sanction Iran for its human rights record, its ballistic missile work and its funding of militant organizations worldwide marks a new phase in congressional policy toward the nation just two years after a nuclear deal with its government bitterly divided Capitol Hill. Those who opposed the 2015 accord feared it would secure Iran as a nuclear threshold state, providing Tehran with all the strategic benefits

At least 19 people have been killed in forest fires in central Portugal. The majority died while trying to flee the Pedrogao Grande area in their cars, according to the government.

Secretary of State for the Interior Jorge Gomes told the press that three people died from smoke inhalation and 16 died in their cars on the road linking Figueiro dos Vinhos to Castanheira de Pera. It is not yet known what caused the fire, which has also burnt down houses in the area.

Seoul - South Korea will soon begin the mass-production of its new mid-range hit-to-kill missile interceptor, code-named M-SAM, as it has passed an operational capability test, a defense official said Saturday. The M-SAM surface-to-air missile will serve as a core element of the country´s Korea Air and Missile Defense System (KAMD), currently in the making, against North Korea´s threats. "The prototype of the M-SAM (missile) to intercept an enemy´s ballistic missile was rated fit for combat operation by meeting all the requirements at a test early this month," the official said on the condition of anonymity.

Gerry Martin isn’t sure he will ever tell a police officer during a traffic stop that he has a concealed-weapon permit — and possibly a weapon — on him. The acquittal of a Minnesota officer in the death of a licensed gun owner who volunteered that he had a gun seconds before being fatally shot during a traffic stop adds to the worries of African-American gun owners about how they are treated by police and society. Acknowledging that they have a weapon, they said, can open them up to violence from police, who can then claim they feared

Los Angeles - The nation´s oldest U.S. senator looks like she´s sticking around. California´s Dianne Feinstein turns 84 on Thursday and is displaying signs that she´s headed for a re-election campaign, not a retirement party. While the Democrat has been coy when asked about seeking a fifth full term next year, her political committee, unambiguously titled Feinstein for Senate 2018, raised more than $650,000 in the first three months of this year in a cue she is looking ahead. Feinstein plays a marquee role for Democrats on Capitol Hill, where she has queried Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey

Several Democrats in Congress warned President Trump on Friday that he will face consequences if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. “All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) told MSNBC Friday. “And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings.” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) echoed Lieu’s sentiments, saying that Congress would come together to make sure they

CITIES could begin to start running out of fresh water in less than ten years, experts warn, as fears grow for the global population. Researchers have issued a stark warning that 2024 could spell the end of the absolute necessity that is fresh water for some northern hemisphere cities. Iqaluit, in eastern Canada, is earmarked as the first area which will run dry in just seven years time, a study by York University has found. Increasing demand on the supply coupled with crippling climate change is seeing residents facing a bleak future. Various methods are being suggested in an attempt to address the

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has a warning for President Trump: "Donald, you ain´t seen nasty yet." Warren read aloud from her new book "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America´s Middle Class" and took questions at a town hall event in New York Friday, HuffPost reported. Warren blasted Trump for his economic policies, saying they are hurting the middle-class Americans who voted for him.

Following the acquittal of a police officer charged in the death of Philando Castile in Minnesota, there’s definitely been a renewed conversation in America about police brutality and the justice system. After nearly a week of deliberations, the jury found Jeronimo Yanez not guilty of all counts in the July 2016 shooting of Castile. The shooting took place in a suburb of St. Paul and was caught on video. Yanez’s acquittal was met with strong condemnation from protesters around the United States. As a man who led a national anthem protest this past NFL season, free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to

Local leaders in and around Madison, Wisconsin are seeking to rename the main county government building after former President Barack Obama — “the JFK of our generation.” The seven-story building is currently called the City-County Building. It’s a gray, soul-crushing, Brutalist slab of concrete. Inside the dreary, Soviet apartment-style exterior walls — originally erected in 1956 — are administrative offices and a jail. “Barack Obama was the JFK of our generation,” County Executive Joe Parisi said on Thursday, according to The Capital Times, a Madison newspaper. “He deserves to be honored, and he deserves to be recognized, not only for his accomplishments, but

WASHINGTON – Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday introduced legislation that would automatically register voters who transmit information to state and federal agencies, potentially adding 50 million new voters around the country. In introducing the legislation on the House Floor, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) discussed Shelby County v. Holder, a 2013 Supreme Court decision that struck down certain aspects of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and eliminated the need for nine states to seek federal approval for altering voting laws. Central to the decision was the debate over racial discrimination through polling laws. Controversial voting laws in Texas and South Carolina went into effect

In a video earlier this week, Hillary Clinton seemed to compare herself, or at the very least her values, to Wonder Woman — and I’m just not sure what in the fresh hell she could possibly be talking about. “Something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley,” Hillary Clinton said in the 95-second video message at the Women in Film Los Angeles’ Crystal + Lucy Awards on Tuesday night in Beverly Hills.

Being rich is more pleasant than not being rich for many reasons, one of which is that the more money you have, the less society´s rules and obligations weigh on you. You slide through life using your wealth and connections to avoid the hassles and complications that occupy ordinary people, seldom having your choices impeded by what others or even the government demand of you. In theory the rules apply to everyone, but in practice there are almost always ways around them that are only available to a few. A wealthy person with a powerful conscience and moral foundation can avoid

The FBI on Friday refused to hand over to The Washington Times unclassified memos that former Director James Comey wrote describing his meetings with President Trump because they are part of a pending or prospective law enforcement proceeding. The denial of the documents, whose existence was made known and whose release was encouraged by Mr. Comey himself, was a response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by The Times. It came as CNN and the New York Times filed lawsuits against the FBI after the bureau failed to respond to similar requests within a specified amount of time.

The Illinois official responsible for paying the state´s bills is warning that new court orders mean her office must pay out more each month than Illinois receives in revenue. Comptroller Susana Mendoza must prioritize what gets paid as Illinois nears its third year without a state budget. A mix of state law, court orders and pressure from credit rating agencies requires some items be paid first. Those include debt and pension payments, state worker paychecks and some school funding. Mendoza says a recent court order regarding money owed for Medicaid bills means mandated payments will eat up 100 percent of
