RT logoSyrian Kurds have echoed the warning of a British military official, claiming that airstrikes against ISIS are not enough to defeat it.

Kurds fighting against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) militants who are closing in on the city of Kobani in Syria, near the Turkish border, said there are too many IS fighters to stop them with airpower alone.

“Airstrikes alone are really not enough to defeat ISIS in Kobani,” Idris Nassan, a senior spokesman for the Kurdish fighters, told the Guardian. “They are besieging the city on three sides, and fighter jets simply cannot hit each and every ISIS fighter on the ground.”

Rich depraved bloke seeks to tax deprived Oldies to deathdepravedos

On April 6th 2015, everyone with a draw-down pension will be able to turn it into cash – and/or do a lot more things with it as a pension. Doesn’t that sound exciting?

Just as with Help to Buy, the minute Osborne announced this scam I was in grudging awe of the man’s skill when it comes to underwater three-dimensional Chess moves. He may have 100% of all the wrong ends, but he does have 250% of the right means to achieve said ends. Continue reading

“Statoil has signed an agreement with yet another new-to-Statoil gas customer in the European gas market. The agreement with Naftogaz is for deliveries of gas in Slovakia,” Statoil spokesman Morten Eek said, noting shipments began on Wednesday from Slovakia.

“From there, they are responsible for transportation,” Eek said, but didn’t specify the price Naftogaz is paying for the deliveries.

The spokesman said the deal is “short-term” and the volumes are “relatively-low”.
