Foreign Mercenaries kill Syrian troops summary-style while tied up and blind-folded after surrender - video ~ link ~ The laws of warfare were developed over many centuries to put some parameters on the horrors of combat. The scum that our tax dollars are helping to send to Syria know no such basic laws. As we have seen, even the eating of the heart of one's enemy is not off limits! This is what the demonic criminals that control America and many NATO nations have taken us to ... cannibalism and the killing of unarmed, handcuffed, surrendered soldiers! Stirling
Syrian Army inflicts heavy losses on foreign-backed militants ~ link ~ As I have said many times before, the Syrian Army, fighting on its own soil and fighting for the people and families of their countrymen against foreign invaders is 'kicking the hell out of the mercenaries'. It is only the billions of dollars, from the 'West' and the GCC nations, that is paying for an endless stream of foreign mercenaries, that keeps the war going. The globalists/Zionists know that this cannot go on without end, so they are desperate to widen the war, however, the Chinese and Russians seem to have other ideas. Stirling

Every injured American soldier will cost US $2 million in the long run ~ link ~ That adds up to one hell of a lot of money, for America, spend on unnecessary wars for Israel and the globalists, and decades of pain and suffering for the poor American veterans. Stirling
Health Care Workers MERS-CoV Confirmed in Middle East ~ link ~ Further to its previous statements and within the framework of the continuous monitoring and epidemiological
The above comments from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Ministry of Health website on MERS-CoV cite the confirmation of two health care workers in the eastern region of KSA (see map). Some media reports have said they were nurses, but more detail on location, age, gender, and disease onset dates has not been released.
However, such SARS-like infections are not unexpected. As seen in the above graphic, the number of confirmed MERS-CoV cases has been increased to 30, which includes 21 recent cases in the eastern region (see map). However, media reports have cited many additional coronavirus cases not included in the above tally, including two recent deaths of younger residents (9F and 21M), who were cited at a press conference. The age and gender of the youngest matches the case cited on May 5. Classmates have also developed symptoms, suggesting community transmission, which is supported by multiple media reports describing additional student infections, as well as school closures due to MERS-CoV.
The common threads in all of this government secrecy and lying are a general rejection of government’s moral obligation to tell the truth, a disturbing yet brazen willingness to evade and avoid the restrictions the Constitution has deliberately built around government, and a glib admission that the government can do as it pleases so long as it can politically get away with it.

First and foremost, if bonds fall, rates will increase. With higher rates, it will be harder to meet debt obligations. This will be the case for corporations as well as sovereign nations. For the former, this means that more money going towards paying off debt and less going to shareholders. For the latter, sovereigns, this means default. Most sovereign nations in the developed world are sporting Debt to GDP ratios above 100%. These levels are just manageable with interest rates at record lows. When interest rates rise, default becomes a very real possibility.
