August 14, 2014 by legitgov

Pentagon Gave Ferguson Police Department Military-Grade Weapons --In 2013 alone, $449,309,003.71 worth of property was transferred to law enforcement,' the agency's website states. 13 Aug 2014 The local community of Ferguson, Missouri, may not look like a war zone, but and the Pentagon has helped the police treat it like one. According to Michelle McCaskill, media relations chief at the Defense Logistics Agency, the Ferguson Police Department is part of a federal program called 1033, in which the Department of Defense distributes hundreds of millions of dollars of surplus military equipment to civilian police forces across the U.S. That surplus military equipment doesn't just mean small items like pistols or automatic rifles; towns like Ferguson could become owners of heavy armored vehicles, including the MRAPs used in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Russia sending aid convoy to Ukraine despite Western warnings of 'invasion pretext' 11 Aug 2014 President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that Russia is sending an aid convoy to eastern Ukraine despite urgent Western warnings against using humanitarian help as a pretext for an invasion. European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso delivered a blunt message in a telephone call with Putin on Monday. "President Barroso warned against any unilateral military actions in Ukraine, under any pretext, including humanitarian," the Commission said in a statement. The Kremlin, in its own account of the conversation, made clear that Moscow would indeed send help to largely Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine. [It's about time! *Apparently,* only USociopaths are allowed to send 'aid.' In fact, the US pig snout is sniffing for oil and water in nearly every nation on God's green earth, using 'aid' as a pretext for stealing resources and running - as in the 14-year illegal occupation of Afghanistan - the CIA's opium routes. --LRP]
