Are Turkey and NATO contemplating a military intervention against Syria ahead of the Chicago Summit? ~ link ~ That would mean World War III. It is symptomatic of just how insane and evil the world has become that such possibilities are being considered. Stirling
On April 11 Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told reporters accompanying him to China that Turkey is considering asking the 28-nation North Atlantic Treaty Organization to invoke its Article 5 collective military assistance clause against Syria after a reported brief cross-border skirmish between Syrian military forces and what were identified as refugees, whether armed or otherwise remains unclear. Turkey unabashedly provides refuge for and, though not publicly acknowledged, assistance to thousands of Free Syrian Army fighters in its south.
The Turkish head of state insisted that “NATO has a responsibility to protect Turkish borders,” in what could only be interpreted as an allusion to the military bloc's founding document provision mentioned above, the bulk of which states: "The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them...will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area."

Heavy fighting continues on Kabul streets ~ link ~ It's nice to know that the thousands of American and allied troops killed and wounded, and the trillion dollars spent, have made Kabul and Afghanistan a safe and secure place...NOT. Stirling
The Taliban have reportedly dubbed the attacks the start of their ‘spring offensive.’
Afghan police say the assailants tried to enter the parliament but were driven back.
Nevertheless, the very concept of man-made weather is simply too much for many stuck in mainstream tunnel vision to grasp. Admittedly, those of us not actually involved in the project, as a result of overwhelming secrecy and blatant refusal to divulge any real information on the HAARP system, are left to much speculation.
In recent years, Moscow has presented itself as a reliable friend to Hanoi, one that will not endanger its national security like China or apply pressure for improvement in human rights like the United States and European Union. In return, Russia has won lucrative contracts to modernize the Vietnamese military and build the first two nuclear reactors in the country.
