EU Fires Blanks At Putin, UK Coalition Killing As Many Jobs As It Creates, How RBS Did Nothing Wrong Haha And France Falls Meekly Into Line

By John Ward: I recently stuck my neck out by suggesting that when it comes to economic sanctions being placed on Russia, the West – especially the EU – are what that old paedophile Mao Tse Tung used to call Paper tigers. Now a Slog reader points to further confirmation of Russia’s relative safety in the face of Western threats, given that ‘exported commodities represent 20% of Russian GDP. Additionally, commanding over 10% of the global gas and oil market, Russia is a huge marginal producer of the most important commodities on a global scale (and with over 40% of the produced palladium, one can see why its price in recent weeks has exploded)’.
But it doesn’t end there: ‘ Russia supplies literally all of the natural gas that Finland and the Baltics consume and 70% of what Ukraine consumes, a key point of Russian leverage in the current dispute. Dependence is not limited to smaller, immediately neighboring countries; Germany relies on Russia for around one-third of its total gas supplies. Although seasonal and other factors could lessen the impact of disruptions to these flows, there is no doubt that such potential disruptions would negatively impact European growth….unlike the great powers of the developed world which have been unable to grow at a BRIC-like pace, and thus were forced to borrow heavily from the future for some very modest growth today, Russia did not have that problem. As a result, Russian total external debt is tiny when viewed from the prism of an insolvent G-7 country.’

Women & Cars - MGTOW

Sandman: So thank you Stan for your donation and I'll get right into the topic. The issue of women and cars started creeping into my head a few weeks ago when my buddy Dave decided he had enough of his old 1999 Honda Civic and it was time to trade in the car he purchased while still in College and he decided to purchase a year and a half year old S series Mercedes with cash.

Okay, MGTOW, I Get It Now. If This Is The Option, I’d Pass Too

By : Isabel Chalmers has written a truly compelling, heart wrenching piece at Thought Catalogue about how her slutty days are behind her and she’s ready to offer her vagina to a Nice Guy now.  That’s so sweet Isabel.  Let’s see what you have to offer:
Dear Nice Guy,
Note the lack of plural.  Isabel is not talking to Nice Guys as a group – she is addressing that one special Nice Guy to which she is obviously entitled.
I don’t know you yet but I’m so ready to date you. Seriously, I am. For a long time, I dated bad boys. Yes, I was that girl you blame for always coming in last. I guess I dated bad boys because, somehow, I liked their unavailability, sexy sideways glances, and late-night calls. I fed off the chase and mystery they provided me. I saw them as a challenge that I always happily accepted. Let me tell you, I’ve dated so many jerks throughout the years. A lot of times, I ended up being disappointed with how it ended with them, and wondered why I always had such blind optimism about these guys I clearly knew were jerks to begin with. But to be honest, I don’t regret any of it now.
You dated men you knew were unavailable, and the juxtaposition of “sexy” and “late night calls” strongly suggests you were a booty call for a whole bunch of them. You fed off the fact that they made you feel desirable – they chased you. Your word for these men is “jerks.” A lot of times you ended up disappointed?  A lot of times?  You’re kidding, right?

Israel, US Supporters Seek To Portray Iran As Threat + Apartheid Israeli Land Thieves Uproot Olive Trees - The Worlds Largest Open Air Prison

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the Israeli regime and its American supporters spearhead an “anti-Iran campaign” in an attempt to portray the Islamic Republic as a global “threat.”
Orwellian UK BANNED Press TV: In an essay for the journal Foreign Affairs, Zarif said the administration of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani seeks to “defeat the international anti-Iranian campaign, spearheaded by Israel and its American benefactors, who seek to ‘securitize’ Iran -- that is, to delegitimize the Islamic Republic by portraying it as a threat to the global order.”
“The main vehicle for this campaign is the ‘crisis’ over Iran’s peaceful nuclear program -- a crisis that, in Iran’s view, is wholly manufactured and therefore reversible,” wrote the Iranian foreign minister.
The administration of President Rouhani engaged in nuclear talks with the P5+1 group – the US , Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany – in an effort to foil the smear campaign launched against the country, added Zarif.
The top Iranian diplomat further emphasized that the Islamic Republic “has no interest in nuclear weapons and is convinced that such weapons would not enhance its security.”

Greek Austerity Has Caused More Than 500 Male Suicides - Report + CLUBMED & WESTERN NEOLIBERALISM: Why Revolutions Are Caused By Failure, Not Envy

RT: Spending cuts in Greece have caused some 500 male suicides since their implementation, according to a new study. The research found a positive correlation between austerity and suicide rates after other possible links proved to be unrelated.
The 30-page study, titled 'The Impact of Fiscal Austerity on Suicide: On the Empirics of a Modern Greek Tragedy' and published in the Social Science and Medicine journal was authored by Nikolaos Antonakakis and Alan Collins from Portsmouth University.

Suicide rates in Greece (and other European countries) have been on a remarkable upward trend following the global recession of 2008 and the European sovereign debt crisis of 2009,”
states the study’s abstract.

Each 1 percent decrease in government spending resulted in a 0.43 percent rise in suicides among men, according to the study. Between 2009 and 2010, there were 551 deaths which occurred “solely because of fiscal austerity,” it stated.

Furious Chinese Beat Their Corrupt Police To Death

: It appears, based on these extremely graphic images, that the Chinese people have a different way of dealing with corrupt officials. As Shanghaiist reports, a citizen posse involving around 1,000 people marched last Saturday in Cangnan county of Wenzhou city, Zhejiang province, resulting in the hospitalization of five chengguan, China's notoriously abusive and under-regulated urban enforcement officials. The alleged cause for the posse was the five's brutally killing a civilian. According to reports, the chengguan "hit the man with a hammer until he started to vomit blood, because he was trying to take pictures of their violence towards a woman, a street vendor." This man later died while being rushed to the hospital. Given the following images of civilian retribution; is it any wonder, the powers that be in China fear social unrest?

[Background: Chengguan is a name given to the City Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau, a municipality police that exists in every Chinese city. Chengguan are notorious for their brutality and generally hated far and wide for it. Their purpose is to enforce municipal bylaws, but they like to resort to violence and often use it against those with no means to fight back.]
The incident began...
