Ankara will take decisive action against Germany in response to the German legislature's decision to recognize the Armenian genocide, the German newspaper Bild quoted Ibrahim Kalyn, press secretary of the Turkish President, as saying. During the tragic event, an estimated 1.2 million ethnic Armenians were slaughtered or starved to death by the Ottoman Empire beginning in 1915, during World War I. "The competent authorities, including the Foreign Ministry, are [already] preparing an action plan," Kalyn said.

Meanwhile, Bild claimed that Turkey is preparing at least three lawsuits against 11 German MPs with Turkish roots, the article says. Two lawsuits were initiated by Turkish police trade unions, while the third such document was lodged by the Turkish association of lawyers, according to Bild.
The German MPs will be accused of publicly discrediting the Turkish nation, the Republic of Turkey, the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, the Turkish government and state bodies of justice, Bild said.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu slammed the resolution as a "denigration" of history, while President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that it would have a serious effect on relations between Germany and Turkey.
By contrast, Germany maintains draconian sentences for anyone denying the veracity of the Nazi holocaust; in 2015 an 87-year-old woman was sentenced to 10 months in prison after insisting that Auschwitz was "not historically proven" to be a death camp, according to The Telegraph. Germany has admitted its role in failing to prevent the Armenian genocide as a WWI ally of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans' policy of ethnic violence has been recognized by several dozen countries as an act of genocide, including Russia. Ankara maintains that Turkish nationals were also victimized.

Washington has recently increased reconnaissance flights near Russia's and China's borders, while accusing Moscow and Beijing of intercepting US spy planes that are "violating their national security."

Last week Chinese military aircraft interceprted US reconnaissance planes near the island of Hainan and the upcoming conference on mechanisms of maritime military security on June 24-25 is thought to prove the "capabilities of military channel as well as good relations between Washington and Beijing."

China Confirms Intercepting US Reconnaissance Plane Over South China Sea
However, on May 22, US Air Combat Command Commander Gen. Herbert Carlisle in an interview with USA Today newspaper criticized the increasing "aggressiveness" of Russian and Chinese combat aircraft intercepting US military planes.

He added that the concerns are caused by attempts by Moscow and Beijing to expand their influence in Eastern Europe and the Pacific region.

Chinese military expert Zhang Junshu said in an interview with Global Times newspaper that the increased number of US spy planes near Chinese and Russian borders is a serious violation of their state security.

Gen. Carlisle also said that the number of Russian long-range bombers in Eastern Europe and near the US west coast is increasing while China wants to take control over the South China Sea.

"Our concern is a resurgent Russia and a very, very aggressive China," he said.

"Their intent is to get us not to be there… So that the influence in those international spaces is controlled only by them. My belief is that we cannot allow that to happen. We have to continue to operate legally in international airspace and international waterways," he added.

Beijing Strikes Back at Kerry's Accusations Over Air Defense Zone in S China Sea
While the US accuses Russia and China of "aggressive" actions the US is in fact deploying the largest military actions against Russia and China since the time of World War II, according to Iran News.

The majority of interceptions of US spy planes took place near the borders of Russia and China, the analyst said.

The US admitted that last year the Pentagon conducted over 700 patrols in the South China Sea, including over 100 spy flights.

'Breaking the Rules': Why US Spy Planes Intensified Flights Near Russian Borders
According to the expert, this violates Russian and Chinese national security. Moscow and Beijing have the right control such activities.

He also said that despite the fact that Beijing and Washington have agreed a number of maritime security memorandums China will not turn a blind eye to the US surveillance activities.

Over the last three weeks, RC-135 spy planes of the US Air Force have approached Russian borders 14 times, including over the Baltic Sea, in the Murmansk Region and in the Far East.

The latest incident took place on Sunday when an RC-135V plane flew near the Russian border over the Baltic Sea. The aircraft, tail number 64-14844 and call sign TROG34, took off from the Mildenhall airbase in Britain and flew in the southern part of the Baltic Sea.

"In the 1990s, the US didnt conduct reconnaissance flights over Russia because at the time the Russian military was weak. Now, they are concerned with the resurgence of Russias military power. This is why the Pentagon has intensified aerial intelligence," expert Vladislav Shurygin was quoted as saying by TV channel Zvezda.

Inoltre, gli stranieri residenti per tale violazione potrebbe affrontare l'espulsione.
Secondo lui, la raccolta delle donazioni per i siriani in questo modo viola il sistema vigente nel Paese per la lotta contro il terrorismo e il suo finanziamento.

"Alle divisioni delle forze armate ucraine è stato assegnato un compito: bombardare massicciamente dal 17 al 20 giugno i confini meridionali della Repubblica, così come con azioni di sabotaggio in direzione di Mariupol, per destabilizzare la situazione nella DNR con lo scopo di distogliere l'attenzione dai successivi tentativi di riconquistare i territori di Avdeevka, Yasinovataya e Gorlovka ", — ha detto Eduard Basurin, basandosi sui dati dell'intelligence della DNR. Secondo lui, per compiere provocazioni sono arrivati nei pressi di Mariupol 300 uomini delle forze di sicurezza ucraine. Eduard Basurin ha inoltre aggiunto che i militari ucraini continuano a concentrare le armi pesanti, proibite dagli accordi, verso la linea di contatto. Ad esempio nei pressi di Peski, Marinka e Pobeda, come notato da Eduard Basurin, sono stati trovati mortai, obici e unità di artiglieria delle forze ucraine. Nell'aprile 2014 Kiev ha lanciato un'operazione militare contro le autoproclamate Repubbliche Popolari di Donetsk (DNR) e Lugansk (LNR), che avevano dichiarato l'indipendenza dopo il colpo di stato di Maidan nel febbraio 2014. Secondo gli ultimi dati delle Nazioni Unite, le vittime dall'inizio del conflitto sono più di 9 mila persone. La normalizzazione del conflitto nel Donbass viene discussa anche tramite le riunioni del gruppo di contatto a Minsk, che da settembre 2014 ha adottato 3 documenti che regolano le operazioni di de-escalation del conflitto, tra cui il cessate il fuoco. Tuttavia, anche dopo l'entrata in vigore della tregua, tra le parti in conflitto proseguono scontri isolati. http://it.sputniknews.com/mondo/20160612/2877277/Kiev-DNR-Ucraina-Basurin.html#ixzz4BNY2U1hi

Sin dagli anni Novanta, è stato una delle voci più critiche nel Bahrain, e nel mondo arabo in generale.

LA LEGGE È BUONA, quando si prefigge di educare le persone, è cattiva quando diventa: cinica, ingiusta, formale: insensibile e unicamente repressiva! 13 GIU - La giovane olandese arrestata in Qatar per aver denunciato di essere stata stuprata alcuni mesi fa è stata rilasciata oggi dopo una condanna a un anno per adulterio. La pena è stata sospesa. Lo riferiscono i media olandesi. La giovane è stata condannata a pagare una multa di circo 720 euro, e verrà espulsa. L'uomo accusato dalla ragazza è stato invece condannato a 100 frustate per adulterio e 40 per consumo di alcol. SE LA DONNA POTEVA DIMOSTRARE DI ESSERE STATA VIOLENTATA? CERTO, LEI ANDAVA RISARCITA, NON PUNITA!

la NATO è l'AGGRESSORE! La Russia CRISTIANA rimane l'ultimo avamposto degli uomini liberi: dopo viene il DEMONIO NWO CALIFFATO: SODOMA E IL DILUVIO UNIVERSALE! "Senza senso i tentativi di attribuire l'immagine di aggressore alla Russia" 13.06.2016) Gli avversari della Russia cercano di creare l'immagine dell'aggressore, ma l'intera politica del Paese racconta una storia diversa, ha affermato il vicepresidente della Duma Sergey Zheleznyak. "I russi sono sempre aperto al dialogo e al rispetto delle tradizioni di altre nazioni. Nonostante i nostri avversari cerchino di creare per la Russia l'immagine di aggressore, tutta la nostra politica dice il contrario. La nostra patria interpreta il ruolo di pacificatore, fornisce assistenza umanitaria, salva la gente dalla guerra, dalla distruzione e dalla fame", — ha detto ai giornalisti Zheleznyak. Secondo lui, la Russia rimarrà un centro di stabilità, pace e cultura. http://it.sputniknews.com/politica/20160613/2879143/diplomazia-Occidente-Russofobia.html#ixzz4BS2PkHEG

Cinquanta persone sono morte e 53 sono rimaste ferite negli Stati Uniti, nella più grande strage nella storia americana, avvenuta in una discoteca-gay ad Orlando nella notte di sabato. L'aggressore Omar Matin, in base alle informazioni dell'FBI, aveva chiamato il numero di emergenza ed aveva dichiarato di aver giurato fedeltà allo "Stato Islamico". QUESTA STORIA DEL FBI PUÒ ESSERE SOLTANTO UNA CALUNNIA: E NON IMPORTA SE È UNA CALUNNIA DELLA FBI OPPURE È UNA CALUNNIA DELL'ASSALITORE!

    lakieforsure In risposta UNIUS REI 13.06.2016 | UNIUS REI, Non condivido i metodi stampo nazista da eliminazione fisica di coloro che si ritengono nemici. Per quanto riguarda la Vera Parola di Dio, non l'ho ancora ben capita sinceramente: rimanendo nel credo ebraico-cristiano, l'Antico Testamento ricorda più un codice bellico, il Nuovo appare come una rivalutazione radicale di un Dio definito Padre pacifico e misericordioso. Mah.. e lo dico comunque da credente eh. Io credo fermamente nell'esistenza di un'entità superiore ai limiti della logica umana. Peccato solo che bisogna sempre catalogare la fede in base a credi determinati da questioni politiche o dalle lobby. Guarda caso poi, i tre più grandi credi sono le religioni abramitiche (un caso che, oltre all'economia, governino anche gli affari religiosi?).
    Detto questo, condivido la tua ultima frase: nessuno vuole vivere nella depravazione. Le lobby LGBT, a mio parere, stanno pericolosamente soffiando sul fuoco.

https://youtu.be/FOMa0nkbZuY "Srebrenica, come sono andate veramente le cose" i massacri islamici della NATO! Pubblicato il 12 giu 2016. Alberto Melotto intervista l'editore Giuseppe Zambon in merito al libro "Srebrenica, come sono andate veramente le cose", di Alexander Dorin e Zoran Jovanovic. Paolo Marinelli ] finalmente mi viene da dire. sono anni che penso molto simile al signor Zambon, quel che passa come storia ufficiale, incontestata, è al 99% dei casi, il capovolgimento della realtà dei fatti.. capito questo, occorre andare a rivedere molti fatti.. non è un caso che si imponga per legge la storia (legge sul negazionismo). Il signor Zambon troverà molti molti nemici proprio tra quelli che notoriamente dovrebbero essere di sinistra: Sinistra che da decenni, guarda caso, la si trova sempre a sostegno di disegni imperialisti, globalizzanti, europeista. CI hanno detto che il nazionalismo era il male assoluto, e hanno creato una dittatura europea basata sull'ideologia della superiorità europea rispetto alle singole Nazioni e popoli. Decenni al fianco del Capitale, e come disse qualcun'altro, vestiti di rosso gli schizzi di sangue si notano meno. Decenni a incensare senza se e senza ma gli islamici insediati nella ex jugoslavia da secoli e che da secoli sono forieri di scontri di civiltà. Stesso percorso di verità necessiterebbe a questo punto, quanto successe col kosovo, da secoli territorio serbo, terreno di battaglie che fermarono le continue invasioni turche verso l'europa. E quelli "de sinistra" tutti a incensare i poveri kosovari, albanesi illegalmente sul suolo serbo.

  Marcello Randazzo ONU a cosa serve??? Meglio non commentare!   Buffoni (usa e ue) hanno isolato la russia??? In tanto noi stiamo puzzando di fame perdendo miliardi di €€€€ per un capriccio organizzato dai dementi oltre oceano. Bhe se queste sanzioni portano al sgretolamento dell'U.E sono piu che benedette, alla fine è quello che vogliono gli usa per mantenere la leadership. (Immaginate i paesi europei che fanno business con i russi. Per gli usa sarebbe il crollo totale) Quindi meglio mantenere il caos tanto la gente è lobotomizzata a dovere.

Koba d'acciaio é una lotta tra imperialismi per l'egemonia nel globo. il capitalismo industriale ha bisogno di avere dei paesi non progrediti , cioè feudali, tali da garantirgli una "riserva" di risorse umane schiave che produce per le multinazionali. é una lotta di eserciti privati al servizio delle multinazionali. anche il capitale finanziario internazionale ha interesse nel conquistare i paesi non allineati alle sue politiche, cioè al sistema del debito monetario dollaristico. anch'essa, la Russia,   é una stazione dell'imperialismo e dello sfruttamento , ma in minor misura, poiché non ha riserve in giro per il mondo e non possiede multinazionali, ma opta per un'economia protezionistica reazionaria, che inevitabilmente sarà sconfitta dal progressivo espandersi del modo  di produzione multinazionale
