The new biography says the sixty-one year old Putin lives a life without sex. It also claims his much talked about affair with Olympic rhythmic gymnast Alina Kabaeva was an invention of his PR advisors who hoped to portray Putin as “macho and (a) sex bomb” in order to conceal the truth as Belkovsky sees it; for Putin “sex and a sex life are alien” and that he is “latently gay.”
What Belkovsky insists is a glimpse of the real Putin and not a PR invention, are all those photos of Putin posing with animals. He says Putin fears people, and would much rather spend his time with four-legged friends.
Alicia Herron called 911 after she saw Roberson behaving erratically after taking the pills to control his blood sugar. She says she thought paramedics were coming to the house, but the police arrived instead.
When the Waycross Police Department arrived, they say that Roberson behaved aggressively toward them and was “aggressively armed with two items used as weapons,” leading them to shoot at him. But Herron says that the officers didn’t say a word as they came in and shot the man.
“He didn’t say nothing, the police didn’t say nothing, anything, it was like a silent movie,” she said.
Meet the City Council of Waycross, Georgia. Aren’t you relieved, like I am, that this is simply incompetent police work and not racism?
We heard from ordinary people who faced torture and imprisonment for doing nothing more than watching foreign soap operas or holding a religious belief,” Kirby told the Human Rights Council on Tuesday in an oral update on his team’s work. “Women and men who exercised their human right to leave the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] and were forcibly repatriated spoke about their experiences of torture, sexual violence, inhumane treatment and arbitrary detention.”
Among the testimony team collected included from children who were born into the camps as their parents served out their sentences. “They had to live on rodents, grasshoppers, lizards and on grass and they were subject to cruelty,” Kirby told the BBC World TV. “All in all it is a very horrifying story, the like of which I don’t think I’ve seen or read of since the Khmer Rouge [in Cambodia] and the Nazi atrocities during the second world war,
There is a growing body of evidence from numerous sources in the Middle East — mostly affiliated with the Syrian opposition and its supporters — providing a strong circumstantial case that the August 21 chemical incident was a pre-planned provocation by the Syrian opposition and its Saudi and Turkish supporters. The aim is reported to have been to create the kind of incident that would bring the United States into the war.
According to some reports, canisters containing chemical agent were brought into a suburb of Damascus, where they were then opened. Some people in the immediate vicinity died; others were injured.
We are unaware of any reliable evidence that a Syrian military rocket capable of carrying a chemical agent was fired into the area. In fact, we are aware of no reliable physical evidence to support the claim that this was a result of a strike by a Syrian military unit with expertise in chemical weapons.
In addition, we have learned that on August 13-14, 2013, Western-sponsored opposition forces in Turkey started advance preparations for a major, irregular military surge. Initial meetings between senior opposition military commanders and Qatari, Turkish and U.S. intelligence officials took place at the converted Turkish military garrison in Antakya, Hatay Province, now used as the command center and headquarters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their foreign sponsors.
Senior opposition commanders who came from Istanbul pre-briefed the regional commanders on an imminent escalation in the fighting due to “a war-changing development,” which, in turn, would lead to a U.S.-led bombing of Syria.
At operations coordinating meetings at Antakya, attended by senior Turkish, Qatari and U.S. intelligence officials as well as senior commanders of the Syrian opposition, the Syrians were told that the bombing would start in a few days. Opposition leaders were ordered to prepare their forces quickly to exploit the U.S. bombing, march into Damascus, and remove the Bashar al-Assad government.
The Qatari and Turkish intelligence officials assured the Syrian regional commanders that they would be provided with plenty of weapons for the coming offensive. And they were. A weapons distribution operation unprecedented in scope began in all opposition camps on August 21-23. The weapons were distributed from storehouses controlled by Qatari and Turkish intelligence under the tight supervision of U.S. intelligence officers.
