Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, threatened that the United States will take “own” action if the UN Security Council fails to act on an alleged chemical attack in the village of Khan Sheikhoun in the Syrian province of Idlib.

“When the United Nations consistently fails in its duty to act collectively, there are times in the life of states that we are compelled to take our own action,” Haley said during her speech that included images of children as a proof of the need of swift action.

In other words, Haley blackmaled the UN Security Council in order to get a decision in that the US is interested:

To condemn the Assad government for the attack without any investigation.

Haley emphasized that “The truth is that Russia, Iran and [Syrian President] Assad have no interest in peace,” indicating that he is ready to blame these countries if they oppose to the US actions in the council.

Currently, China is presumably developing a silent submarine of a new generation, the Sina information portal reported on Wednesday, citing some scientists, familiar with the country’s military plans. As the website noted, researchers, who previously had experience working abroad, in particular in the US, and then returned to China, may be involved in the development.

It was also reported that at the moment, a computer model of the future submarine is being created. The work is being conducted by a group of Hea Govea, a research officer of the Institute of Mechanics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMCAS).

According to the portal, previously, he worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico in the US. The scientists’ developments should help China to obtain necessary technologies that would not only allow creating of a new silent submarine, but also would help …

The terrorist group also launched a number of attacks targeting Iraqi forces in the densely-populated districts of western Mosul. Two armored vehicles belonging to the Iraqi Army were allegedly destroyed.

In a separate development, the Iraqi Air …

US Protection Racket Root of Korea Conflict

By Finian Cunningham

The best way to understand the seemingly reckless, recurring threat of nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula is this: the East Asian region is being run like a Mafia protection racket. And the criminal Mafia is the US.

The conflict emanates from Washington and is perpetuated by Washington. Why? To justify what would otherwise be seen as simply outrageous US militarism in the Asia Pacific hemisphere, and in particular a criminally aggressive agenda towards the main geopolitical targets of Washington - China and Russia.

Korea’s conflict is not primarily about North and South “enemy states”. It is, as it has been for the past 68 years since the end of World War II, about Washington using military force to criminally assert its hegemony on the global stage.

But you wouldn’t know this from a casual reading of the Western news media. No, we are told over and over again that the US is “protecting” South Korea and its other Asian allies. The military presence of the US is “ser…
