Putin just threatened to pull out of the fight to destroy ISIS if Turkey downs another Russian jet

Russia will pull out of the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State in Syria if there is a repeat of the shooting down of its fighter jet by Turkey, Vladimir Putin has warned.

Speaking after talks in the Kremlin with French President Francois Hollande, Putin expressed lingering anger at Turkey’s actions, saying he viewed the downing of the jet as an act of betrayal by a country Moscow had thought was its friend.

And while Putin said Moscow was ready to keep cooperating with Western powers against the “mutual enemy” of ISIS, he said the downing of the jet by Turkey this week was “unacceptable.”

“We are ready to cooperate with the coalition which is led by the United States. But of course incidents like the destruction of our aircraft and the deaths of our servicemen … are absolutely unacceptable,” Putin said at a news conference with Hollande.

“And we proceed from the position that there will be no repeat of this, otherwise we’ll have no need of cooperation with anybody, any coalition,

Obama pushes for gun control after Planned Parenthood shooting

Obama pushes for gun control after Planned Parenthood shooting

After a gunman opened fire at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood on Friday, killing three people and injuring several others, President Obama urged the nation to increase gun control over “the easy accessibility of weapons of war.”

“This is not normal,” the president said in a statement Saturday. “We can’t let it become normal.”

“If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them,” Mr. Obama added. “Enough is …

Obama calls U.S. to take in at least 10,000 more Syrian refugees

Obama calls U.S. to take in at least 10,000 more Syrian refugeesPresident Barack Obama has ordered his administration to “scale up” the quantity of Syrian refugees admitted to the u. s. within the coming year, leading his team to organize for a minimum of 10,000 within the next year, the White House said last week.

The announcement comes amid growing pressure for the U.S. to extend the amount of refugees it accepts as those displaced by the raging Syrian war pour into Europe and different regions.

Before the White House announcement, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi criticized the amount of extra refugees the Obama administration had said last week that it had been trying to simply accept — just 5,000.

This is really important. I think 5,000 is far too low a figure,” relating the number Secretary of State John Kerry had …

Israeli Prime Minister Rejects to Absorb Some Migrants

Israeli Prime Minister Rejects to Absorb Some MigrantsHead of administration Benjamin Netanyahu rejected calls from opposition leaders to help assimilate a percentage of the Center Eastern migrants flooding Europe, saying Sunday that Israel was too small to take them in.

The head of administration said Israel isn’t indifferent to the human tragedy of the refugees but “Israel is a small country, very small. It does not have demographic depth. It does not have geographic depth.

That is why we have to control our borders against both illegal work infiltrators and instigators of terror,” Mr. Netanyahu included, …

Nestle Pays Just $524 To Exploit Drought Desperate California

Nestle Pays Just $524 To Exploit Drought Desperate CaliforniaThis month, Nestle has once again been placed right at the heart of the California megadrought. With the increasingly parched state now in its fourth consecutive year of official ‘drought conditions,’ authorities are starting to panic. According to recent reports, the state is now down by a twelve month supply of water and the Colorado River is running dry.

In fact, since Nestle was first named and shamed, it has actually increased the amount of liquid which it is drawing from the natural springs. The most controversial site is the San Bernardino National Forest, as it has recently been revealed that the company has drawn water from the area without a valid license for almost three decades.

Yet, Nestle has, thus far, refused to stop bottling water in the thirsty region – even Starbucks has now admitted the dubiousness of drawing for bottled drinks from natural springs, but Nestle will simply not back down. In essence, it seems to be waging a one man water war for the right to condemn a whole state and the people who live there.

Uncovering the Extent of the Problem

Plus, Nestle is also drawing a huge amount of water from Arrowhead Springs, for use in its bottled Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water. The springs in question happen to be situated on public ground, within the bounds of a publicly accessible national forest and parkland. If it is starting to sound a little confusing to you too, do not worry – there are plenty …
