UN says13 killed daily since September ceasefire deal between Kiev and pro-Russian militias

▶ UN:13 killed daily since September ceasefire deal - YouTube


        



The United Nations says nearly a thousand people have been killed in
eastern Ukraine since a ceasefire deal between Kiev and pro-Russian
militias came into effect in September.

The U-N High Commissioner
for Human Rights says the conflict has daily killed an average of 13
people since September 5. He says in total, more than 43-hundred people
have lost their lives in over seven months of fighting in east Ukraine.
Nearly ten-thousand others have also been wounded there. The
commissioner also invited the warring sides to help resolve the crisis
peacefully, and in line with international laws and standards. Tensions
in Ukraine's restive east only got worse earlier this month, after
pro-Russians held elections to pick a leader and new lawmakers.

The Iraqi army, backed by Shia and volunteer forces, has launched an operation to liberate the town of Hit in Anbar province.

Iraqi troops have already managed to free the Doulab area near the town from the ISIL militants. The terrorist group had taken control of Hit last month. Hit is a walled market town located some 130 kilometers west of the capital Baghdad. It is not far from Anbar's provincial capital Ramadi, which is still under the ISIL control.

Russia warns US against arms delivery to Ukraine

PressTV - Russia warns US against arms delivery to Ukraine



   


Moscow has strongly warned Washington against providing Ukraine’s military with lethal arms in its operations against pro-Russia forces in the east.

“We repeatedly heard confirmations from the (US) administration that only non-lethal weapons would be delivered to Ukraine. If there is a change in this policy, then this is a highly destabilizing factor that could seriously influence the balance of power in the region,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told a news conference in the capital, Moscow, on Thursday.


“That (would be) a direct violation of agreements reached, including (agreements reached) with the participation of the United States,” the Russian official added.

Lukashevich’s remarks came a day after Tony Blinken, the US deputy national security adviser, told a US Senate committee that Washington should consider strengthening Ukraine’s armed forces through supplying weaponry.

“I believe that, given the serious Russian violations of the agreement that they signed...that one thing that could hopefully get them to think twice and deter them from further action is strengthening the capacity of the Ukrainian forces, including with defensive lethal equipment,” Blinken said on Wednesday.

The two mainly Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Lugansk in eastern Ukraine have been the scene of deadly clashes between pro-Russia protesters and the Ukrainian army since Kiev’s military operation started in mid-April in a bid to crush the protests.

Violence intensified in May after the two flashpoint regions held local referendums in which their residents voted overwhelmingly in favor of independence from Ukraine and joining the Russian Federation.

Rand Paul Is Hillary Clinton's Worst Nightmare

Real Time with Bill Maher: Senator Rand Paul - November 14, 2014 (HBO) - YouTube






                                          .


read it all here

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-20/why-rand-paul-hillary-clintons-worst-nightmare
1. Rand Paul will be more cautious with waging war than Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush. Sen. Paul has called Obama’s ISIS war illegal and isn’t against defending American interests through military intervention, but stresses the importance of Congress making these decisions. Hillary Clinton, in contrast, thinks we should have armed the Syrian rebel groups several years ago. Try naming even one of the Syrian rebel groups and explaining their differences with ISIS. Furthermore,The Week states that “Clinton’s instincts appear to be far more hawkish than Barack Obama’s.” Imagine a more hawkish Obama and you’ll get the next President Clinton. Also, famed neocon Robert Kagan is one of Clinton’s advisers and states in The New York Times, “I feel comfortable with her on foreign policy.” That should tell you how liberal Clinton will be on matters of perpetual war in the Middle East.



2. The Los Angeles Times has referred to Paul as “one of the foremost critics of the government’s domestic spying program.” In early 2014, Sen. Paul filed a lawsuit against the NSA over domestic spying. Neither Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, nor any other candidate in 2016 has made this a top priority in their campaign. Sen. Paul has also voted against PATRIOT Act Extension bills, voted for an amendment that prohibits detention of U.S. citizens without trial (which of course didn’t pass the Senate), and his voting record protects American citizens from politicians paranoid over terrorism. Sen. Paul was vehemently against the NDAA Indefinite Detention Bill that passed in 2013, because, “This bill takes away that right and says that if someone thinks you’re dangerous, we will hold you without a trial. It’s an abomination.”



3. Rand Paul has teamed up with liberal Democratic Sen. Cory Booker to reform the criminal justice system. Their bill would improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans who’ve been adversely affected by non-violent criminal sentences. Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush don’t care about reforming the criminal justice system, and if they do, it’s on the bottom of their to do lists, far behind cozying up to Wall Street and increasing America’s military presence in the Middle East.



4. POLITICO states Hillary Clinton is “Wall Street Republicans’ dark secret” in 2016. I don’t see Clinton as being any more liberal than Paul on Wall Street or banking, although perhaps she’d be more willing to save failed corporations than the Kentucky Senator. Also, Paul is one of the few Republicans who’s addressed the GOP’s love affair with corporations, stating that, “We cannot be the party of fat cats, rich people, and Wall Street…corporate welfare should once and for all be ended.”



5. Sen. Paul thinks Edward Snowden was treated unfairly as a whistleblower and should have only spent “a few years” in prison. No other candidate in 2016 would dare take that position. The Wall Street Journal criticizedPaul’s position on the Snowden matter, and their criticism actually makes me like Rand Paul in 2016 even more. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is “puzzled” why Snowden would want to leave the U.S. and feels he might have helped terrorists with his disclosures.



6. Rand Paul publicized the issue of a possible government drone strike, on American soil, against American citizens. No, I’m not making this up. I don’t want to get blown up eating a burrito at Chipotle because I visited Egypt to see the pyramids and happened to sit in a café frequented by a terrorist. In 2013, Rand Paul asked Eric Holder whether or not American citizens could be targeted by drones on American soil. Jon Stewart has a great segment about this. Eric Holder actually answered that theoretically, yes, drone strikes to kill Americans on U.S. soil could be viewed as legal, depending on the circumstance. If this doesn’t frighten you, then vote for Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush, since neither one cares about this matter. Issues like drone strikes on American soil, against Americans, is why I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. This sort of thing is being discussed today in plain sight, yet only Rand Paul and a few others have shown outrage over the potential of our government to possibly target its own citizens. If it’s not an ISIL beheading video, nobody seems to care nowadays.



7. Rand Paul could bring back an era in American politics when conservatives and liberals socialized with one another. This alone would solve some of the gridlock in Washington. Paul has worked with 7 leading Democratson a number of issues; working on everything from judicial reform, NSA surveillance, the limits of presidential authority to launch strikes in Iraq, and other issues. Imagine Ted Cruz reaching out to Nancy Pelosi, or Mitch McConnell having lunch with Hillary Clinton. Rand Paul, on the other hand, has worked to emulate this picture.



8. Rand Paul will not gut the ec

onomic safety nets of this country in the manner espoused by Paul Ryan and others. He doesn’t want to dismantleSocial Security. I do disagree with his view of the SNAP Program and certain other issues. However, Paul has stated, “I’m for a social safety net, but it should be minimized to helping those who can’t help themselves.” I don’t ever recall Ted Cruz or Paul Ryan making that type of statement and mainstream Republicans do everything in their power to promote the view that safety nets equate to communism or socialism.



9. Neoconservatives hate Rand Paul. They like Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush a lot more, and The Weekly Standard, National Review, and others have voiced their reservations about a Rand Paul presidency. If neocons disagree with you, then you must be doing something right.



10. Rand Paul could be the answer to our philosophical conundrum as a nation. We’re stuck with a GOP who thinks the globe is one giant Stratego board game with God helping roll the dice, a Democratic Party more focused on defending Obamacare than stopping endless wars or protecting civil liberties, and a populace that cares more about beheading videos than the erosion of rights or the welfare of our warriors. Is Paul the answer? I’m not certain. But compared to Hillary and Jeb Bush, I’ll take the man who stated, “I do blame the Iraq War on the chaos that is in the Middle East.”

Biden Visits Kyiv: American officials to meet Poroshenko on 21 November









http://en.voicesevas.ru/news/yugo-vostok/3182-summary-of-hostilities-in-novorossia-on-november-19.html

On November 19 the area along the highway Bakhmutka, locality Stanitsa Luganskaya (LPR), Donetsk airport, the suburbs of Donetsk, south of DPR remained"hot" spots on the fronts of Novorossia. In general, the front line is not undergoing significant changes for the past days.



The parties exchange shelling, while Ukrainian military traditionally brings more damage to houses and peaceful infrastructure than to militia positions.

Night of November 18 to 19 was relatively calm in Donetsk. By 10:00 (hereafter - Moscow time) it is quiet in the city.



By noon, the morning calm ended. Ukrainian artillery resumed shelling of Donetsk, Kievsky and Kirovsky districts were under fire. Novorossia Army Artillery struck on positions of Ukrainian security officials in the west of Avdeyevka. At 22:10 AFU artillery fired Kirovsky and Petrovsky districts again. From Peski and Opytnoye Ukrainian security forces intensified artillery attack in the direction of Lidievka, Beryozovoye (Donetsk) at 22:00, there was fight at Peski.



At 22:40 in the district of Donetsk Smolyanka there was battle with AFU SRG, the group of Ukrainian saboteurs destroyed.



 In the Donetsk airport it was restless in the morning, SRGs of Ukrainian security officials attempted to break into the territory, the militia stopped all attempts. About 12:30 artillery shelling of area of the airport by Ukrainian army was recorded. At about 16:00 tank was heard at Donetsk airport. Ukrainian law enforcers intensified at 16:30 and began shelling the airport with new force from two directions: from the settlement Peski and from the western part of Avdeyevka, shells went to the area of the runway. Novorossia retaliatory artillery fire destroyed an AFU ammunition depot near the airport. At 22:00 Ukrainian artillery shells fired from Avdeyevka towards the airport, flew to the area of the old terminal, TC "Metro" and Putilovka



(Donetsk).


In the afternoon of November 19 Ukrainian security officials shelled residential neighborhoods of Pervomaisk from their positions near the settlement Popasnaya. The shelling killed 5 people, including two children, and wounded several people.



The observers of the OSCE mission were shelled by Ukrainian law enforcers twice in two days.

Israeli soldiers protect settlers as they attack Palestinians

▶ Israeli soldiers protect settlers as they attack Palestinians - YouTube


      

A Palestinian human rights group has charged that Israeli soldiers have
protected Jewish settlers who attacked Palestinians with rocks and iron
bars during a confrontation in the occupied West Bank. The attack was in
retaliation for the killing of six people in a Jerusalem synagogue on
Tuesday.



Israeli settlers attack Palestinians under protection of army soldiers







Videos have been released showing Israeli settlers under the protection of army soldiers attack Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

In the three amateur videos, Israeli soldiers appear to be protecting the masked settlers during their attack on Palestinians in the village of Urif. Some 50 settlers threw stones at Palestinians with the Israeli soldiers standing by. The troops are seen with their guns drawn and pointed at Palestinians. The attack is just another example of the Israeli soldiers' failure to meet their obligation to protect Palestinian residents there, under the international law.

Here's What Russian Elites Really Think is Going On in Ukraine

They think its a plot by Washington directed at Russia intended to cause rifts between Russia and Ukraine and Russia and Europe.
Eric Zuesse
The bear guards its cub
This article, with its extensive quotations from an interview by the well-known Russian economist Sergei Glazyev, is a rare example of a fair-minded western explanation of the Russian view of the Ukrainian crisis.
Glazyev's views on this are very widespread among the Russian elite, and it is fair to say, are a very accurate reflection of what Russian elites believe.
The article grasps that for the Russians the key fact of the Ukrainian crisis is not Ukraine’s association agreement with the EU or Crimea’s unification with Russia or the uprising in the Donbas. 
It is the violent and unconstitutional overthrow with western support of the democratically elected government of Ukraine led by Viktor Yanukovych. 
For the Russians what has followed since: Crimea’s secession and its reunion with Russia and the civil war in the east, are the natural outcome of that event.
The extracts in the article from Glazyev’s interview shows how many Russians see the Ukrainian crisis as ultimately directed at themselves – as an attempt by the US to draw them into war and to obstruct the development of their economy and society by creating divisions between Russia and Ukraine and between Russia and Europe.
This article originally appeared in Washington's Blog

U.S. President Barack Obama’s operation (click on this for the documentation) to exterminate pro-Russian voters in Ukraine, was discussed back in July by influential Russian economist Sergei Glazyev, on this website http://en.ukraina.ru/editor/20140717/1010844100.html
U.S. news-media have not been reporting about the U.S.’s hiring nazi (otherwise known as racist-fascist) Ukrainian politicians, and nazi mercenaries, in order to eliminate the residents in Ukraine’s southeast, where the people had in 2010 voted at around 90% for the very same man whom the Obama Administration overthrew in a violent Kiev coup on February 22nd of this year.
So, let’s now see whether U.S. news-media will report (even this belatedly — it’s already four months) on the Russian Government’s view about this important matter.
Here is the key portion of Glazyev’s interview, in which the Russian Government, essentially, presents its view of Obama’s ethnic-cleansing program in Ukraine, to get rid of Moscow-friendly voters in Ukraine:
A.B. The war between the United States and Novorossiya is getting more intense. The Pentagon has announced weapons deliveries to the Ukrainian punishers, while accusing Russia of delivering weapons to the self-defense forces. Does this mean that the US has a right to officially deliver weapons and finance the punitive forces and ulra-nationalists? How should Russia react to this?
S. G. The main task that the American puppet masters have set for the junta is to draw Russia into a full-scale war with Ukraine. It is for this purpose that all of these heinous crimes are committed – to force Russia to send troops to Ukraine to protect the civilian population, which has been fleeing to Russia in the hundreds of thousands and begging for help. Naturally, Russia can’t remain indifferent. Therefore, the American supervisors of the Ukrainian Nazis call far escalation of violence and more victims. Heavy artillery is used against women and children. People are trapped in blockaded cities without water and food. Some cities are facing a real famine. In other words, genocide is being committed on orders from America to force Russia to interfere and protect the civilian population, the same ethnic Russians and Ukrainians, living on the other side of the border. And I should say that the public pressure provoked by these tragic events is very high.
A.B. Many politicians and experts believe that America needs this war to cleanse the territory for shale gas production in the future. It’s a well known fact that major shale gas deposits are located in the Donetsk People’s Republic. Today, we are witnessing the cleansing of Donbas. Those who refused to leave for Russia will be killed or put in filtration camps.
S.G. The war has been provoked to destroy the Russian World, to draw Europe into it, and to surround Russia with hostile countries. Unleashing this world war, America is trying to deal with its own internal problems, which are much more serious than shale gas or a Ukrainian gas pipeline.
A. B. A war for the sake of war? Shouldn’t there be a financial interest?
S. G. The bankruptcy of the US financial system, which is unable to service its foreign debt, the lack of investments to finance a breakthrough to a new technological order and to maintain America’s competitiveness, and the potential defeat in the geopolitical competition with China. To resolve these problems, Americans need a new world war. Using Ukrainian ultra-nationalists as a tool to unleash this war, they are not facing any risk, since they are killing Ukrainians with the hands of the Ukrainians. Pushing the two largest countries of the Russian world against each other, they are trying to destroy and weaken Russia, causing it to fragment, as they need this territory and want to establish control over this entire space. We have offered cooperation from Lisbon to Vladivostok, whereas they need control to maintain their geopolitical leadership in a competition with China. Nazis are their main instrument. They have been training them for decades. It’s a well known fact that following the liberation of Ukraine from the fascists, hundreds of thousands of Banderites and their families fled to America and Canada. They served as a basis for cultivating an aggressive Ukrainian Nazism. It was then exported to Ukraine and today we see American agents in power, who are using ultra-nationalists to foment a new world war against Russia.
A. B. If it is so obvious, and Russian authorities understand that the current leaders in Ukraine are US agents, being used to destabilized the situation around Russia and undermine Russian statehood, should Moscow engage in a dialogue with Kyiv?
S.G. The fact is that not everyone in Moscow understands the essence of the tragic events in Ukraine. People always try to avoid complications, but unfortunately, it doesn’t work. Despite the willingness to hold peaceful negotiations and to stop the killings, it’s not working, as you can see. This has to do with the fact that the real president of Ukraine is not Petro Poroshenko, but the US ambassador in Kyiv.
Closing note: He is referring there to Geoffrey Pyatt, the U.S. Ambassador in Ukraine, taking instruction from Victoria Nuland of President Obama’s State Department (who takes instruction from John Kerry who takes instruction from Barack Obama), regarding whom he must choose to lead the post-coup Ukrainian Government. A detailed transcript and explanation of that 4 February 2014 conversation between Pyatt and Nuland can be seen here. Of course, the fact that the man who would be appointed 18 days later to run Ukraine was being selected during this momentous phone-conversation was ignored there. U.S. ‘news’ media could not deny that this phone-conversation took place, because even the White House now essentially acknowledged that it was authentic. So, instead, U.S. ‘news’ media just ignored the import of what was being said in this history-making conversation — the conversation that led to the ethnic-cleansing campaign that’s now going on (which U.S. ‘news’ media likewise are ignoring). How much longer will this cover-up by America’s press continue?
