Today is the 25th anniversary of the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, in which Russia, USA, & UK gave security assurances to Ukraine in exchange for relinquishing the 3rd-largest nuclear arsenal in the world, over 1700 warheads. Ukraine has been betrayed by all its co-signatories.

China, Russia and Iran begin joint naval drills
The four-day exercise in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Oman comes at a time of heightened tensions between US and Iran.

Tahani added that the drills included rescuing ships on fire or vessels under attack by pirates and shooting exercises, with both Iran's navy and its Revolutionary Guards participating.

State television showed what it said was a Russian warship arriving at Chabahar port in southern Iran and said the Chinese will join shortly, calling the three countries "the new triangle of power in the sea". ...

Brazil's culture minister fired after echoing Goebbels
Brazil's culture minister has been sacked after using parts of a speech by Nazi Germany's propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels in a video, sparking outrage.

In the six-minute video detailing the National Arts Awards, Mr Alvim said: "The Brazilian art of the next decade will be heroic and will be national, will be endowed with great capacity for emotional involvement... deeply linked to the urgent aspirations of our people, or else it will be nothing."

Parts of it were identical to a speech quoted in the book Joseph Goebbels: A Biography, by German historian Peter Longerich, who has written several works on the Holocaust.

"The German art of the next decade will be heroic, it will be steely-romantic, it will be factual and completely free of sentimentality, it will be national with great pathos and binding, or it will be nothing."

Holocaust Memorial Debate: British Colonel Bob Stewart MP Talks About His Experience of Genocide
The fact that there are so few MPs in the House to listen to this fantastic speech is an absolute disgrace.
"My mother served in WW2 fighting the Nazis. When I asked how she felt about the Holocaust, she said she was ashamed it happened on her watch.
I didn't understand what she meant, I told her "you fought the Nazis."

In 1993, I had to order my troops to empty the body bags of Kosovan Muslims killed by Serbs in the Kosovan Muslim genocide, so that the victims could be buried in a mass grave.
Your troops, British troops, had to dig a mass grave.
Then I understood why she was ashamed."
If you watch & share one thing today on social media, please let it be this.

The oligarch behind today’s World Holocaust Forum attended by presidents and kings
At least 45 world leaders have responded to a summons to attend the World Holocaust Forum in Israel to “fight antisemitism.” The event is organized by a Russian-Israeli oligarch who considers support for Palestinian human rights “antisemitic.” He is promoting an Orwellian program that would criminalize “intolerance” and require re-education programs for anyone who strays beyond accepted views…

D-Day and the reopening of America: What history teaches about endgame strategies
Wars are easy to start but harder to finish. The victory that seems at hand, history has amply demonstrated, can slip in a cruel instant from one’s grasp. The formulation of an endgame strategy is a tricky business.

On the 76th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, it’s instructive to look back at the problems the Allied leaders faced and the passionate debate that raged among them as they plotted this unprecedented push toward, as one resigned German general conceded, “the twilight” of the war. ...

Churchill statue 'may have to be put in museum', says granddaughter
A statue of Winston Churchill may have to be put in a museum to protect it if demonstrations continue, his granddaughter has said.

Emma Soames told the BBC the war-time prime minister was a "complex man" but he was considered a hero by millions.
She said she was "shocked" to see the monument in London's Parliament Square boarded up, although she said she understood why this was necessary.

It came after protesters daubed "was a racist" on the statue last weekend.
Ms Soames said it was "extraordinarily sad that my grandfather, who was such a unifying figure in this country, appears to have become a sort of icon through being controversial."
"We've come to this place where history is viewed only entirely through the prism of the present," she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Ms Soames acknowledged her grandfather had often held views which "particularly now are regarded as unacceptable but weren't necessarily then".
However she added: "He was a powerful, complex man, with infinitely more good than bad in the ledger of his life."

She said if people were "so infuriated" by seeing the statue it may be "safer" in a museum. ...

Es wäre ein falsches Zeichen. Ein Einknicken vor den Extremisten, das Churchill selbst bestimmt nicht gefallen hätte. "He was a powerful, complex man, with infinitely more good than bad in the ledger of his life." Diesem Urteil kann ich mich anschließen.

Allerdings, bei Trump_Gegnern verzichtest Du generell auf jegliche gebotene Differenzierung wie: "more good than bad in the ledger of his life" und propagandierst ausschließlich deren Fehler und Schwächen.

Nein, das tue ich nicht. Es gibt gute Gründe, nicht für Trump zu sein.
Dass er angeblich ein Rassist, ein Nazi, ein Orangenfarbener ist, sind keine guten Gründe. Und ja, für viele seiner Gegner gilt "more bad than good in the ledger of their lives."

Wenn das Russen und Chinesen dazu bringt, Kohlekraftwerke aus der Steinzeit abzuschalten und auf den Bau neuer zu verzichten, wäre das für das Klima keine schlechte Nachricht.


Allerdings mit der zeitlichen Einschränkung: bis zum nächsten Tsunami!

phoenix persönlich mit Prof. Dr. Maja Göpel
„Die weltweiten Krisen in Umwelt und Gesellschaft sind kein Zufall“, so die Politökonomin Maja Göpel. „Sie offenbaren, wie wir mit uns und dem Planeten umgehen, auf dem wir leben. Wenn wir diese Krisen meistern wollen, müssen wir uns die Regeln bewusst machen, nach denen wir unser Wirtschaftssystem aufgebaut haben. Erst wenn wir sie erkennen, können wir sie auch verändern – und unsere Freiheit zurückgewinnen.“ Das schreibt Maja Göpel in ihrem Buch „Unsere Welt neu denken“.

In der Sendung "phoenix persönlich" spricht Michael Krons mit der Ökonomin und Transformationsforscherin Maja Göpel, über die Frage, warum sie einen Wandel unserer Gesellschaft für notwendig hält, ob der Wachstums-Gedanke ausgedient hat und welche Rolle die Corona-Krise dabei spielt.

Damit die Knaeblein mal wieder was zum sich aufregen haben.:-)
