Russian destroyer fires warning shots at Turkish fishing boat trying to ram it ~ linklink ~ link ~
The provocations against Russia continue ... demonic behavior wrapped in insanity!!!  Stirling 

Russia says one of its warships fired warning shots at a Turkish fishing boat in the Aegean Sea to avoid a collision

A Russian defence ministry statement said the Turkish vessel approached to 600m (1,800ft) before turning away in response to Russian small arms fire.

A Russian destroyer had to open warning fire as a Turkish fishing vessel sailed on a collision course towards them and didn’t respond to calls from the warship, the Russian Defense Ministry reported. The incident happened in the northern part of the Aegean Sea some 12 nautical miles from the Greek island of Lemnos, the ministry said.
The crew of the Kashin-class guided missile destroyer Smetlivy spotted the Turkish fishing trawler some 1,000 meters from the Russian warship early on Sunday morning, the ministry said. The ship was sailing towards the destroyer and ignored calls for radio contact and other attempts to communicate.
Was the Aegean Sea incident with the Russian Destroyer Smetlivy a 'Turkish Provocation?' ~ link ~ [Note: The Smetlivy is not a frigate, it is a destroyer. Stirling]

The cause of the incident in the Aegean Sea with a Russian frigate and Turkish seiner was either a total disregard for safety rules, or it was a poorly organized provocation, a source in the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Erdogan has completely lost his mind: NATO's rogue elephant ~ link ~ If the major NATO powers really wanted to, they would 'tie a knot in his a@#'.  As it is, he is a key operative in their drive towards WWIIIStirling  
Turkey will not withdraw troops from an Iraqi camp close to the northern ISIS-controlled city of Mosul, said President Tayyip Erdogan, condemning Iraq’s appeal to the UN Security Council about Turkish forces’ presence, which deemed it to be “not honest.”

“They can resort to the UN Security Council, that is their natural right, but this is not an honest step and we believe that Iraq’s actions are related to the latest developments in the region, that is, the steps taken by Russia and Iran,” Erdogan said in an interview with Al Jazeera.
Erdogan’s comments came shortly before Iraq sent a letter to the UN Security Council demanding an immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all Turkish troops from Iraq.

Neocon's hegemonic goal of eliminating national sovereignty is bringing on the Extinction of Planet Earth ~ link ~ This is one that you really need to read in full at the link!  Stirling  

To avoid the coming conflict that the neoconservatives’ pursuit of American hegemony is bringing, the Russians have relied on fact-based, truth-based diplomacy. However, neocon Washington relies on lies and propaganda and has many more and much louder voices. Consequently, it is Washington’s lies, not Russia’s truth, that most of the Western sheeple believe.

The Western peoples are so dimwitted that they have not yet understood that the “war on terror” is, in fact, a war to create terror that can be exported to Muslim areas of Russia and China in order to destabilize the two countries that serve as a check on Washington’s unilateral, hegemonic power.

In the West lies prevail, and the lies are driving the world to extinction. An expert reminds us that it only takes one mistake and 30 minutes to destroy life on earth.

Nuclear Holocaust In Just 30 Minutes ~ link
The Nuclear End of the World never happened. When the Cold War finally ended, the whole world sighed in relief as the threat of total annihilation seemingly passed. And yet, 25 years later, both the US and Russia once again are pumping up their nuclear arsenal, and the Doomsday Clock shows it’s just three minutes before midnight. Is nuclear destruction looming once again over humankind? And, even if no state is actually ready to press the button – could Atomic Armageddon happen by accident? We ask these and many other questions to a specialist on nuclear technology, a professor from MIT and a former adviser to the US Chief of Naval Operations. 
The Chinese Submarine Threat ~ link ~ This is a good broad overview of the threat, however, there may well be classified technological advances on both sides that are not covered.  It is not wise to bet against the US Navy, however both the Russians and Chinese have put a lot of time and resources into finding strategic solutions to Western military superiority. One danger that the West has is that large numbers of leading countries have such high percentages of what can only be called 'corruption', in their overpriced defense industries. When comparing West vs. East spending on military matters, you can easily come to the conclusion that the West is light-years ahead.  However, much of this is based on grossly overpriced (that is boondoggle pricing) from the western defense industries.  Russia and China and Iran are known to get a 'lot more bang for a buck' for their time/money/resources Stirling   

Going forward, Beijing has always treated the submarine as a key component of its “counter-intervention” strategy against a modern adversary. To this end, the People’s Republic is seriously investing in its undersea fleet, such that it now has more submarines than America has, although their quality is still inferior. As a senior USN official said: “We know they are out experimenting and looking at operating and clearly want to be in this world of advanced submarines.” The key issue is to what extent can the Chinese catch up with the Americans in the realm of undersea warfare? Opines Owen R. Cote perceptively in a 2011 study: “The Chinese are still far from that position, but as in other areas, it would almost certainly be a mistake to assume that they won’t eventually get there if they decide to try.” His words are just as pertinent today. In fact, the case of the Soviet Akula, whose acoustic technologies appeared years before the West believed they would, shows that Washington must never rest on its laurels with respect to Chinese submarines.

To be sure, the United States Navy is cognizant of the threat and has taken steps in recent years to mitigate it. It has, for instance, introduced advanced ASW systems such as the SQQ-89A(V)15 Combat System, the Multi-Functional Towed Array, and the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft. Whether or not these and similar measures would enable the U.S. to retain a distinctive edge in the undersea combat realm vis-à-vis China remains to be seen.

Monthly Vivitrol injections could fight drug cravings ~ link ~ A friend of my late father was a top local judge.  Years ago, he introduced the judicial concept of giving persons with multiple alcohol-related convictions the option to go on Antibuse, which kept many people off the booze and out of jail.  This might do the same for several illegal drugs.  Stirling   

Runaway Inequality Is Ripping USA Apart ~ link ~
When 85 individual people have more wealth than the bottom 50 percent of the population, it causes a ripple effect that has lasting implications for humanity. Les Leopold's Runaway Inequality examines how income and wealth inequality affect critical issues like war, climate change and human rights, and what options exist for building a fair and just society.
