Russia did nothing as NATO bombed Serbia in 1999 and destroyed Libya in 2011. It watched NATO ignore promises not to expand eastward and not to build new military bases in Europe. After the CIA coup in Ukraine in 2014, Russia realized that it must push back to survive.
Russia had always maintained friendly relations with Syria and sold it much weaponry. The Neocon’s Greater Israel project is mostly unknown to Americans. Part of this sinister plan was an effort to destroy Syria beginning in 2011. Israel and Turkey sought to expand their borders while the Arab gulf states wanted a secure pipeline to send natural gas to Europe. Neocons control American foreign policy so the United States supported this effort that shipped tons of arms and thousands of jihadist mercenaries to Syria to overthrow its popular government.
Russian intervention to save Syria in 2015 led to a huge power shift in the Middle East. The failed Neocon coup in Turkey, years of threats to Iran, and threats to Russia led to an informal alliance. These nations had differences in the past, but clear threats from the Israeli-America-Saudi axis of evil encouraged them to form an unofficial alliance. As a result, the Neocon plan for Greater Israel was halted, so the Neocons accelerated an ambitious plan to destroy Russia.Read More »

10 worst mass killers, regimes and dictators
Naturally this list is subjective to an extent, and probably contains some mistakes and things that I missed. However, I think the top 3 are somewhat obvious and its no great surprise why I chose the regimes and dictators that I did.

But a Chadian government official told AFP anonymously that N’Djamena blamed the diplomat for “interfering too much” in the “governance of the country”, as well as “remarks tending to divide the Chadians“.

Prime Minister Saleh Kebzabo called the protests an “armed insurrection”. He also personally ordered the ban on several opposition parties, claiming they had “led a rebellion in the south and killed people”.
