"I contend that for a nation to try and tax itself into prosperity, is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." -- Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)


The Ukrainian army has been using US-made weapons outlawed under international conventions to shell the territory of the Lugansk People’s Republic, the LPR militia’s spokesman Andrey Marochko told TASS on Tuesday.

"Some foreign statesmen deliberately keep silent about the neo-Nazi rampage in Ukraine and the extermination of the civilian population of Donbass.

This video was filmed in a military block in Afghanistan in 2012 and shows Australian commandos discussing plans to meet a 'kill quota' of 10 - as they are preparing for an operation. The “Quota” is also reportedly referred to as kill count. In another clip, an Australian soldier is seen in a moving helicopter, firing at several unarmed Afghan civilians in a residential compound.

Some Australian military forces have also confirmed that compelling evidence exists of Australian soldiers murdering handcuffed detainees and prisoners to add to their kill count.

The Ukrainian army has attacked a refugee convoy in the eastern region of Kharkov, killing over 30 people, according to the Lugansk People’s Republic’s envoy to Russia.

Rodion Miroshnik wrote on his Telegram channel that those killed in the artillery bombardment included children. He added that emergency services are unable to access the bodies, as shelling from Kiev’s forces continues. The republic’s health ministry stated that seven other people were injured, including two children who lost their parents in the shelling.
