Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces began an unannounced test of the nuclear weapons near the central Russian city Yoshkar-Ola, the SMF’s press center said Wednesday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) have begun an unannounced test of its nuclear weapons near the central Russian city Yoshkar-Ola, the SMF’s press center said Wednesday.

“The Committee of the Command of Strategic Missile Forces is conducting an unannounced test of the condition and security provisions of nuclear weapons in the Yoshkar-Ola Missile Unit,” the SMF’s press service said in a statement.

The Yoshkar-Ola missile unit is armed with the Topol intercontinental nuclear-capable ballistic missile complex.

In February, the SMF held record-long drills that included more than 30 missile regiments. The same month, missile forces also completed command and staff exercises testing the troops’ combat readiness.

In January, SMF spokesman Col. Igor Egorov said that the Russian Strategic Missile Forces planned to conduct more than 100 drills in 2015.

THIS IS JUST LIKE IN THE UNITED STATES. WE DID THE SAME THING !Labour ‘allowed 3.6million migrants in over 13 years to change Britain’

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 11.10.31 AM

THE stark impact of Labour’s open-door immigration policy is revealed in a new study which shows that nearly four million extra people arrived in just 13 years.

BY ANIL DAWAR

Net foreign migration during the Blair and Brown years topped 3.6 million – equivalent to the population of Britain’s five largest cities ­outside London, Migration Watch ­figures show.

The staggering number, four times higher than the previous 13 years and not including illegal immigrants, was a combination of “conspiracy and cock-up”, the survey found.

It claims the surge was caused by deliberate Labour policy in relaxing controls over immigrants.

Vast numbers were allowed to flock into the UK because of Labour’s ­failure to foresee the influx of millions of new EU citizens from eastern Europe.

And tens of thousands of bogus students took advantage of lax visa rules promoted under Tony Blair.

The new study comes just a week after the latest net migration figures hit 300,000, fuelled mainly by 190,000 newcomers from outside the EU.

Experts have argued this is due in part to a hangover from the situation set up by the Labour government between 1997 to 2010.

The new MigrationWatch report showed that although the ­initial leap in net migration in 1998 from 48,000 to 140,000 was “largely” beyond Labour’s control, “thereafter, there was a deliberate policy of ­loosening controls in almost every sector”.

Among Labour’s policy blunders highlighted in the report was the ditching of the “primary purpose rule” forcing foreigners to show they were not marrying Britons simply to enter the UK.

And reams of new asylum rules brought more immigrants seeking refuge but failed applicants were “encouraged” to stay illegally because just one in three were deported.

MigrationWatch chairman Lord Green of Deddington, warned: “There is nothing to suggest that Labour now have the political will to get the scale of immigration down to a sensible level, rather the reverse.

“The pressures from pro-immi­gration groups in and around any future Labour government would very likely lead to the gates being thrown open once more.”http://bcove.me/ji6h28dq

Militants fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have thrown yet another young man to his death from a building after accusing him of being gay.

Stomach-churning photographs show a large bloodthirsty crowd gathered at the foot of a multi-storey building in the group’s de facto capital Raqqa to watch the murder of the young victim.

With the baying crowd clambering on to rooftops to get a better view of the savage scene, the blindfolded man is dragged to the roof of the tallest building in the neighborhood by bearded militants, who use mobile phones to film him being barbarically thrown to his death.

Sick: The stomach-churning photographs show a large bloodthirsty crowd gathered at the foot of a multi-storey building in the group’s de facto capital Raqqa to watch the murder of the young victim

The images were released by local activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, who work undercover in the ISIS stronghold to expose the terror group’s atrocities. 

The photographs carry the distinctive yellow logo of ISIS’ propaganda wing Al Hayat Media Centre, suggesting they come from an as-yet unreleased video of the savage murder.

The photographs shows a huge crowd gathering at the foot of a run-down building in the west of the city, which ISIS captured in early 2014 amid the ongoing chaos of the Syrian Civil War.

So many people are seen in the streets to watch the man being thrown to his death that vehicles are unable to pass, although it appears the militants have erected metal railings to keep the crowds in line, giving a chilling sense of order to the savagery.

The blindfolded victim – who is understood to be in his 20s – is seen being dragged to the top of the building by three black-masked militants while two armed but undisguised fighters stand at their side using mobile phones to film the gruesome murder.

The next image shows the man plunging to his death, falling face first from behind a white metal railing towards the ground several stories below.

The horrific murder is just the latest example of ISIS throwing men accused of being gay to their death. 

In December ISIS released their first images of the shocking punishment as part of a release that also showed men accused of rape being crucified and left for dead in the centre of Raqqa. 

Similar images emerged in January and early February of men being thrown from ‘the highest point in the city’ following accusations of homosexuality. In a horrific twist, both of these men somehow survived the fall but were then stoned to death by the crowds gathered below.

And just last week another young man was thrown off a roof and stoned to death after being accused of homosexuality. Following a trial in an Islamic State court, the man was taken to the roof of the building and thrown to his death in front a large crowd below.

The man was described as a ‘child of Lot’ and accused of committing acts of sodomy.

Lot is referred to in the Bible and the Qur’an, where it is claimed the people of Sodom and Gomorrah carried out sinful acts and were severely punished by God.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2978890/ISIS-barbarians-throw-gay-man-building-bloodthirsty-crowds-Syria.html#v-3952465086001

HOW ISLAMIC IS THE ISLAMIC STATE? NOT VERY, SAY EXPERTS: HOW GROUP HAND-PICKS WHAT IT WANTS FROM THE KORAN AND ACCOUNTS OF MUHAMMAD’S ACTIONS TO WAGE ITS JIHAD 

The Islamic State cherry picks sections of the Koran and misinterprets the accounts of the Prophet Muhammad in order to wage jihad and sign up new recruits, experts say.

It is estimated that 20,000 people have streamed into the territory in Iraq and Syria, where ISIS has proclaimed what it calls a ‘caliphate’, ruled by its often brutal version of Islamic law.

The group purport to recreate the conquests and rule of the Prophet Muhammad and his successors and maintains its worst brutalities – such as beheading captives – only prove its purity in following what it contends is the prophet’s example.

But now Muslims clerics and other experts are speaking out, saying that the group hand picks what it wants from Islam’s holy book, the Koran, and from accounts of Muhammad’s actions and sayings, known as the Hadith.

An ISIS member parades through the streets of Raqqa in Syria waving an Islamic State flag and brandishing a gun. Experts have now said that ISIS misinterprets the Koran in order to wage jihad

It then misinterprets many of these, while ignoring everything in the texts that contradicts those hand-picked selections.

Writings by the group’s clerics and its English-language online magazine, Dabiq, are full of citations from Koranic verses, the Hadith and centuries of interpreters, mostly from hardliners.

But Joas Wagemakers, an assistant professor of Islamic Studies at Radboud University in the Netherlands, says these are taken far out of context by ISIS.

He explained that Muslim scholars throughout history have used texts in a ‘decontextualised way’ to suit their purposes and says that ISIS represent the extreme.

He added: ‘It would be a mistake to conclude the Islamic State group’s extremism is the true Islam that emerges from the Koran and Hadith.

LORD ROTHSCHILD WARNS INVESTORS OF ‘MOST DANGEROUS GEOPOLITICAL SITUATION SINCE WWII’

Head of £2.3 billion trust says wealth preservation is the key

by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON | MARCH 4, 2015

Lord Jacob Rothschild has warned investors that the world is mired in the most dangerous geopolitical situation since World War II.

The 78-year-old chairman of RIT Capital Partners, a £2.3bn trust, used the organization’s annual report to caution savers that the focus of the firm would be the preservation of shareholders’ capital and not short term gains.

Rothschild said that “a geopolitical situation perhaps as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II” has created a “difficult economic background” of which investors should be wary.

Rothschild, whose business associates include Warren Buffett and Henry Kissinger, blamed the fraught climate on, “chaos and extremism in the Middle East, Russian aggression and expansion, and a weakened Europe threatened by horrendous unemployment, in no small measure caused by a failure to tackle structural reforms in many of the countries which form part of the European Union”.

“RIT is popular among private investors thanks to its excellent track record and its conservative approach to conserving capital,” notes the Telegraph’s Richard Dyson. Rothschild and his daughter Hannah jointly own shares in the trust worth approximately £160m.

Rothschild’s warning follows reports from January’s Davos Economic Forum during which it was revealed that the wealthy are purchasing secret hideaways in remote locations in order to escape social upheaval and possible riots.

Economist Robert Johnson made headlines when he divulged that “hedge fund managers all over the world….are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.”

Johnson cited income inequality and the potential for civil unrest and riots as the reason for the panic.

“A lot of wealthy and powerful people are quite afraid right now – they see us on an unstable trajectory,” said Johnson. “As the system doesn’t have proper resources, as it doesn’t represent people, things are getting more and more dangerous as say Ferguson, Missouri brings to bear.”

Realtors in New Zealand subsequently confirmed the flight to safety by the elite, noting that “paranoia” and concerns about personal safety and global crises were driving the trend.

6 NATO ships to stage war games in Black Sea

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.58.06 PM

Six NATO warships arrived in the Black Sea on Wednesday to take part in exercises with the Bulgarian, Romanian and Turkish navies, the Alliance’s Maritime Command (MARCOM) said in a statement.

The six vessels in the exercises are assigned to Standing NATO Maritime Group Two (SNMG2), which is headed by US Rear Admiral Brad Williamson.

SNMG2 currently consists of flagship US cruiser guided missile, the USS Vicksburg, as well as Canada’s HMCS Fredericton, Turkey’s TCG Turgutreis, FGS Spessart of Germany, Italian frigate ITS Aliseo and ROS Regina Maria of the US.

“The training and exercises we will conduct with our Allies in the Black Sea prepares us to undertake any mission NATO might require to meet its obligations for collective defense,” Williamson is cited as saying by the MARCOM’s website.

“We are here at the invitation of the Turkish, Bulgarian and Romanian governments and look forward to enhancing our interoperability with their navies,” the Rear Admiral added.

The drill will include simulated anti-air and anti-submarine warfare exercises, simulated small boat attacks and basic ship handling maneuvers.

The deployment of NATO vessels in the Black Sea is a scheduled visit, conducted “in full compliance with international conventions,” MARCOM stressed.

The group is expected to leave the Black Sea and make its way back to the Mediterranean later in March, it added.

“NATO regularly deploys ships to the Black Sea for maritime awareness and training. This scheduled deployment, given Russia’s continued assertiveness, carries an additional message of reassurance to allies in the region,” a NATO official told Reuters.

Previously, Russia’s envoy to NATO, Aleksandr Grushko, said Moscow will take “necessary countermeasures” in response to the Alliance’s increased presence in the Black Sea, which washes the shores of Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and several other countries.

NATO sent additional ships to the Black Sea after Russia’s reunification with the Republic of Crimea in March last year and the beginning of military conflict in April same year.

The USS Vella Gulf, USS Ross, USS Truxton, and USS Taylor – as well as warships from other NATO member states – were spotted in the area.

In July 2014, NATO deployed a total of nine vessels to the Back Sea, setting a record in the post-Soviet period.

Despite the Montreux Convention of 1936 allowing warships of non-Black Sea states to stay in the area for no more than 21 days, the alliance has managed to secure its presence by constantly rotating vessels.
