Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.

The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.

Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.

Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive nuclear strikes on the United States and NATO.

Gen. Yuri Yakubov, a senior Defense Ministry official, was quoted by the state-run Interfax news agency as saying that Russia’s 2010 military doctrine should be revised to identify the United States and the NATO alliance as enemies, and clearly outline the conditions for a preemptive nuclear strike against them.

Yakubov said among other needed doctrinal changes, “it is necessary to hash out the conditions under which Russia could carry out a preemptive strike with the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces”—Moscow’s nuclear forces.

The practice bombing runs are the latest in a series of incidents involving threatening Russian bomber flights near the United States. Analysts say the bomber flights are nuclear saber-rattling by Moscow as a result of heightened tensions over the crisis in Ukraine.

Scotland – 2 short video’s – Yes has to happen, no will kill Scotland


12-dec-14

Scotland, to the no voters, to the unsure, I ask you to watch this video. I ask you to think for Scotland, for our kids future. I ask you not to vote no because of selfish reasons. I know one person who has a LOT of money and simply says “Why should I vote YES, I am fine” Now I got angry with him, no words, just angry, he is a friend. This attitude will undo YOU. I am disabled and never asked to be. I ask all you no/undecided voters a simple question. “CAN YOU TRUST WESTMINSTER TO HELP YOU IN YOUR HOUR OF NEED” If you lose your job, if you become ill or disabled, if you lose your house, if the unthinkable happens and you lose a loved one and you are left alone, think about this, PLEASE! Would you rather hope Westminster feed you or KNOW Scotland will. Do you rich folk know how many families in Scotland depend on handouts from Foodbanks to live? Do you rich folk understand that thousands of kids are born into poverty. Not all poor people are poor through choice. I know a friend who lost his job after a heart attack, before he had a brilliant house, car and went on a Holiday every year. He says now “I took that for granted” Because Westminster told him “You are fit to work” so he gets no help. WHAT IF THAT WAS YOU SCOTLAND? This is why I plead for people to not be selfish in the vote in a weeks time. We must think of Scotland, our kids, our future. I ask you no voters and undecided, do you understand Tory politicians are leaving to join UKIP? What if UKIP had a say in Scotland in the Union? Do you know they will disband our parliament? Yes, they said this, go check. We lose the NHS and we have to pay. Our lives become worse. People are voting for TODAY. I and a few million others are voting for that kid who depends on a food bank, for that family who lost a loved one, for the wife who’s husband died, for our future. WE CAN AFFORD TO BE FREE SCOTLAND. I urge the undecided to think again, I don’t want to leave Scotland for EIRE but like many I will in the event of a no vote. I refuse to bring my kids up in this Union. THINK SCOTLAND, we are the smartest nation on EARTH. Let us not become the stupidest and laughed at and mocked. No voters won’t be forgiven by many. And things will get bad. All that aside, all the blood shed in our past, was that for nothing? Tick the YES box and end Westminster Rule and assure your country looks after each other

Scottish Referendum Is ‘Too Close To Call’


scotland-composite-1-522x293

Too close to call? I don’t see it that way, Yes is way in-front

The Scottish referendum outcome is “too close to call” as both sides enter the final days of the vote campaign, a research agency has said. The TNS poll which puts the Yes and No campaigns equal on 41% came as the leaders of the three main pro-union parties put on a united front to pledge new powers for the Scottish parliament if it votes to stay in the UK on September 18. The measures, which will be contained in a new “home rule bill”, have yet to be detailed in full but the leaders of Scotland’s Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem parties said they had agreed there would be more tax-raising powers for Holyrood. It follows Gordon Brown’s attempt to wrest back the initiative for the No campaign on Monday saying he was firing the “starting gun” for the introduction of far-reaching devolutionary changes.  The former prime minister said work on the transfer of power would begin on the day after the vote, should Scotland vote to remain in the union. The Scottish political leaders on Tuesday endorsed his timetable but would not be drawn on precisely what new powers had been agreed by the three parties. Johann Lamont, the leader of the Scottish Labour party, said: “It is possible to vote no on September 18, the patriotic choice, but also to say that you are voting for change – more powers for the Scottish parliament.” Mr Brown is well aware that Labour supporters are increasingly anxious as the polls suggest significant numbers are being persuaded by the Yes campaign.

His proposal was welcomed by the Prime Minister but David Cameron was effectively bounced into endorsing Mr Brown’s initiative, knowing that he has the ability to energise an electorate that has been resistant to his overtures.

The Better Together campaign has denied the move amounts to panic measures. Labour leader Ed Miliband raised a Saltire over Liverpool on Tuesday and is encouraging other councils to do the same to send the message that England wants Scotland to stay in the union. TNS said the Yes and No campaigns were neck and neck with 41% ahead of the vote on September 18. Tom Costley, head of TNS Scotland, said: “This poll reveals a remarkable shift in voting intentions but the signs were evident in our last couple of polls which indicated a narrowing of the No lead, especially amongst those who told us that they were certain to vote. “It is too close to call and both sides will now be energised to make the most of the last few days of the campaign and try and persuade the undecided voters of the merits of their respective campaigns.” Some 600,000 people could still have to make up their minds in the referendum, with leaders attempting to win over undecided voters.

Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond said pro-independence campaigners have “10 days of hard work” to win the referendum. The TNS poll shows backing for the Yes campaign is up from 38% last month, while support for maintaining the union has dropped from 46%. The momentum is for now with Yes, but were that to change the pressure would suddenly become just as strong on the other side.

Claims Orange Order parade has support within Labour


14729808697_4b408221fe_z

A walk in my home city

In a fair and open Democracy we must understand the views of others, the Orange Order will be doing parades all over Scotland in the coming days and in my City Edinburgh also. I have never seen an orange walk in my life. For people who don’t know it is a walk of solidarity with people true to the British Union. Opinions will be different, mine is, in a free Scotland, why allow British Nationals to do British Orange Order walks? I am all for an open democracy but my fear here is that the coming walks will cause trouble, a lot of trouble. Yes Campaigners have walked and gathered all over Scotland so I guess it’s only fair the other side get to show why they want to be in the Union. I just hope the date is not with hate

THE Orange Order’s anti-independence campaigning has support from within the Labour Party, a leading Northern Ireland politician has claimed.

 The DUP’s Sammy Wilson said one Scots Labour MP told him he was grateful to “see the Lodge on the street” in the weeks and months running up to the September 18 poll .

Just days before tens of thousands of Orange Order members take to Edinburgh’s streets opposing Scottish independence, the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland’s most senior official, Dr David Hume, has claimed it would be “failing in its democratic duty” if it did not stage a Referendum rally.

Meanwhile, former director of communications for the Ulster Unionist Party Alex Kane said he still believed voters would return a No vote “despite rather than because of the efforts of Better Together”.

The Herald’s final Scotland Decides supplement, published tomorrow, features the views of several prominent figures within Northern Ireland’s Unionist community on the Referendum.

One of the pivotal figures in the establishment of Sinn Fein as a political force also explains why Irish Republicans have stayed largely silent on the issue.

In the run-up to Saturday’s Orange Rally, Better Together has insisted the organisation will “never” be part of its operation, with some fearing the march could backfire and boost Yes.

East Renfrewshire Labour MP Jim Murphy said previously the march “shouldn’t go ahead”.

But Mr Wilson said: “In Scotland your biggest pro-Union party is Labour, some of whom are very socialistic indeed. You could say there’s no affiliation politically with our brand of unionism. But the lowest common denominator is we appreciate we’re better off in the Union. One Labour MP told me ‘Sammy, I’ve never been so glad to see the (Orange) Lodge on the street’.”

A Labour source said some within Better Together could see the parade as valuable in mobilising No – those in areas where the organisation is strong and who do not routinely vote.

Dr Hume said: “If people vote Yes we’ll have to accept their democratic will.

“In this democratic debate it would be to negate responsibility not to engage because they (those taking part in Saturday’s parade) have views and outlooks.

“The bottom line is that these people are citizens and tax payers who follow political debates and are engaged in their local communities.”

Mr Kane said: “David Cameron has had the opportunity to be Prime Minister of the entire UK. Issues come and go irrespective. But the big family, the cultural, historic, social and common values have rarely figured. The message could be ‘we’ll survive, there will be hardships but we’ll have different type of relationship and identity’.”

DUP senior policy advisor Lee Reynolds added: “It was clear from the last Scottish Parliament elections the SNP have key strengths. Better Together either didn’t identify these strengths or is not managing to tackle them anywhere near as effectively as is required.”

England Fans Sing ‘F*CK OFF Scotland We’re voting yes’ – Last night


imagesIf we ever need a message from our English friends Scotland, last night they belted out “F*ck off Scotland we’re voting yes” Lets take the hint Scotland.
