If you prefer listening just the audio in m4a format, you can use the command-line tool “youtube-dl” (https://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/):
youtube-dl -f140 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JltCvg9aQYQ
To download&convert the audio to mp3 (almost on-the-fly) you will also need “ffmpeg” (https://www.ffmpeg.org/):
youtube-dl -f140 –audio-format mp3 –audio-quality 0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JltCvg9aQYQ
good info, thank you.
and, yes, youtube-dl is a great tool
cheers and thanks
A small (auto)correction to the mp3 part:
youtube-dl -f140 -x –audio-format mp3 –audio-quality 0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JltCvg9aQYQ
I Forgot to say that it works on Windows, Linux & Mac
With Trump’s leave Russians got their part of Saudi contribution for 9/11. That’s why Russian MoD committed a deliberate fake, posting among other pictures of daesh convoy one taken from a computer game. The Russians formally have not denied themselves telling of US-Daesh collaboration. It is just a ‘mistake’. However the US mainstream media could use this ‘mistake’ to build a counter-propaganda agenda. Trump doesn’t yet have power enough to fully uncover the previous administration’s game.
End of report
27:06 They have admitted that it’s the way they have executed (khatab)?
A google search leads me to Alexander Litvinenko (polonium), denied by Russia, so it’s not him
second result, Alexander Perepilichny, not him.
What’s the correct spelling for “khatab” ?
Here’s a quick Wiki which may be factual:
He was killed during the night of 19–20 March 2002, when a Dagestani messenger hired by the Russian FSB gave Khattab a poisoned letter. Chechen sources said that the letter was coated with “a fast-acting nerve agent, possibly sarin or a derivative”. The messenger, a Dagestani double agent known as Ibragim Alauri, was turned by the FSB on his routine courier mission. Khattab would receive letters from his mother in Saudi Arabia, and the FSB found this to be the most opportune moment to kill Khattab. It was reported that the operation to recruit and turn Ibragim Alauri to work for the FSB and deliver the poisoned letter took some six months of preparation. Alauri was reportedly tracked down and killed a month later in Baku, Azerbaijan on Shamil Basayev’s orders. Ibn Al-Khattab was succeeded by Emir Abu al-Walid.
Succinct digest of the present state of the Military Standoff, Geopolitical Tensions and Rivalries.
Excellent encapsulation, Saker.
If only every American could hear this simple half-hour of truth.
Speaking of technology and how the US handles and applies it reminded me of the below cited memoir describing how transcripts were produced at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919.
Charles L. Mee Jr., The End of Order / Versailles 1919, London, Secker & Warburg, 1981
Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, à mon avis.
Excellent interview saker!
This may be a bit off topic and I do know you have have another article about the alt-right posted elsewhere on this site, but I implore you to peruse this article in the Atlantic Monthly about and tell me whether or not this altright publisher fits the profile of a US intelligence operative:
To me everything about this article aligns with US propaganda narratives:
* the implication that Russia is harboring a major ne0-Nazi inside its borders with the knowledge of Russian intelligence services
* The implication that Nazis would be drawn to Putin
* The deployments to the Donbass region and…
* the deployment to remote Muslim villages in the Phillipines
* the notion that Nazis would make common cause with Iranian revolutionary guard
This guy seems as fishy as Lee Harvey Oswad. What do you think?
Queen Elizabeth handing over her ownership of 100 odd nations to her son Charles is fraught with dangers for the empire. Scheduling seems to imply early 2018 for the abdication or soft pillow. Brexit, the ongoing constitutional crisis is Australia, Zimbabwe…the British hands stirring things up in ME and the US are all manifestation of the upcoming change in Ruler.
When it comes to military industrial complexes, it should be born in mind that the US Military Industrial Complex is in private hands while the Russian Military Industrial Complex is in Government hands. What this means is that the Russian military gets more in quality for less money spent, while the US military gets less for more money spent. Even more important, the Russians have specialized in missile systems first and everything else second. It worked. Russia does not have the manpower and technical means to attack Europe and hold what it would potentially gain, but it does have the manpower and technology to successfully defeat NATO in any attack against Russia, as admitted by Pentagon generals. As for the US empire, yes, it is slowly falling apart, as was inevitable. Wall Street forgot the old Army rule which goes like this:”He who wants to control everything ends up controlling nothing”. As far as I can see, Washington is not too sure what it has to do on the international scene, namely what to hold and what to give up. Well, it better make up it’s mind, as it’s current military expenditures cannot last at this rate for too long, especially if you bear in mind the dollar is being printed backed by nothing.
