Ukraine And It's Not So Democratic Nation

Ukraine’s ‘Democratic’ Dictatorship

Anyone that thinks the "revolution" in the Maiden was started by the Ukrainians spontaneously, is wrong, in my opinion, and that of others well versed in world affairs. Antiwar's website has a great article by Justin Raimondo:

The media narrative about Ukraine – that the “Maiden revolution” was a democratic European-values oriented revolt against a tyrannical Russian-controlled puppet – has always been  a fairytale, largely perpetrated by the Western media in complicity with the US State Department and the European Union. Yet now that same media is being forced to reexamine their bias in the wake of the Ukrainian government’s banning of 34 journalists and seven bloggers from entering the country. The list of the banned includes journalists from Britain, Switzerland, Israel, Slovakia, Germany, Spain, Kazakhstan, Hungary, Estonia, Bulgaria, Germany, Latvia, Moldova, Macedonia, and Serbia.

Possibly How Israel Acquired Nuclear Material For 1st Nuclear Weapon

Not necessarily a conspriacy theory, as the folks over at are guilty of good reportage for the most part. Good Read!

According to formerly top-secret and secret Central Intelligence Agency files (PDF) released August 31 in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit (PDF), the agency’s long retention of key information ultimately stymied two FBI investigations into the 1960s diversion of weapons-grade uranium from a Pennsylvania-based government contractor into the Israeli nuclear weapons program.

The Pitfalls of Being a Doctor in Baghdad IRAQ

Troubling documentary by VICE News. It's both dangerous and disheartening being a medical doctor in this city. If a patient dies, it's not unheard of for the relatives to seek revenge on the doctor by harming him or her, or asking for money. Small wonder that many doctors have left the country, or gone to Erbil.
Infant mortality in Iraq, and Baghdad (a symbol of a nation's medical coverage) is low, as low as a 3rd world country.

Almasdarnews had a story today on how Saudi Arabia and Turkey provided access to Turkish Drones in planning and coordinating attack on Idleb, Syria. If Turkey is allowing access to what one would assume are high end NATO drones via computer and smartphone uplink, just shows the level of support these groups are getting.
It's no secret that both countries want Assad removed. Incredible how the only remaining secular government in the middle east, is under attack by governments essentially ruled by Islamic Clergy.

The article from AlmasdarNews.

Excellent Recap of ISIS battle strategy in the battle of al-Sukhna

The Oryx Blog is an excellent source of information going on in the Levantine War and other foreign hotspots.
He/She is so well informed that they must be an insider intelligence professional - not that I have any knowledge of the former. Just making an assumption.
The blog's article on this assault on is impressive in it's detail. Methinks that perhaps the Syrian Arab Army, is being out generalled! Very disappointing how a so called professional army, can leave the spoils of war intact when retreating.
One would think an officer or leading NCO would ensure that some thermal grenades were used on each piece of equipment before leaving, and any ammunition that can't be taken with them, destroyed.

Not sure if these defenders were "elite" troops or not - I hope not! The article is here:  "The Islamic State's spring offensive: al-Sukhna"

Islamic State [VIDEO] of Their Attack on SOKHNA, Syria.

Islamic State produced video showing their attack on the Syrian desert outpost of #Sokhna.

From what I've gathered from other sources, the Regime Forces are spread rather thin, and the regime wasn't expecting an attack at this location.
It also seems that ISIS is starting to think in terms of Syria being a softer target, than IRAQ at the present time.
Yes, this is propaganda, (aren't the videos from all sides?) but some may find this interesting non the less. I'm definitely not a supporter of wahhabism or even a muslim, but supply this for research purposes and general interest. We should know what's going on in the world, when we're at war. *NSFW*
