Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin's speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn't get a chance to read it, and missed its importance. (For your convenience, I am pasting in the full transcript of his speech below.) Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning. Regardless of what you think or don't think of Putin (like the sun and the moon, he does not exist for you to cultivate an opinion) this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill's “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.
8. Russia does not intend to take an active role in thwarting those who are still attempting to construct their New World Order—until their efforts start to impinge on Russia's key interests.

The warning was issued after NATO on Wednesday announced that an increasingly large number of Russian military aircraft have been tracked flying unannounced into European airspace this month. The alliance claimed at least four groups of Russian bombers conducted “significant military maneuvers in European airspace” over the Baltic, Black Seas, and the Atlantic Ocean this week.
The World Health Organization has a different point of view: the group at the front lines of the Ebola epidemic is ordering 3 million hazardous material suits for health care workers and patients around the world to meet demand over the next 9 months.

1,000 per month: US airstrikes fail to stem the tide of foreign ISIS fighters ~ link ~ Right ... If you believe that BS I have a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge for you (in other words you are really dumb). We have been bombing empty sites and the like.
