Bolton: No Trump-Putin Meeting While Russia Holds Ukrainian Ships, Sailors

>>>Bolton says there will be no meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin while Moscow still holds the Ukrainian ships and sailors it seized near Crimea.

"I don’t see circumstances in the foreseeable future where such a meeting could take place until the ships and the crews are released," Bolton told reporters on December 13.

Russia seized three Ukrainian Navy ships on November 25 and arrested 24 sailors in the Kerch Strait that links the Black Sea with the Sea of Azov.

Moscow alleged that the vessels had illegally entered Russian territorial waters near the Crimea region, which Russia occupied and annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

Ukraine and most UN member states do not recognize the annexation.

NATO has pledged support for Ukraine's navy>>>

The 116th United States Congress will convene sometime after January 3, 2019. One newly-elected member of the U. S.

US Planning a Return: Libyans Should Consider Themselves Warned

US Marines Colonel Adam L. Chalkley, commanding officer of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response-Africa, says conditions are improving on the ground in Libya for the return of an American diplomatic post, six years after the US envoy was killed there in an attack on the Benghazi consulate.

Of course, this is never about “a reintroduction of a diplomatic mission in the war-torn country”. Because of the bogus US-led War on Terror, half of Libya is in ruins – just like the rest of the region. The War Party in Washington only wants to make sure the rest of the country also falls deeper into chaos and division. Simply put, under this policy, Libyans are disposable, foreign-backed terrorism has forced much of Libya towards utter chaos, Yemen is near-collapse levels, and Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen are in a state of helplessness.

Strange enough, defenceless civilians in these failed states still find themselves being blamed for their misfortunes>>>

Who the hell does Blair think he is? DOMINIC LAWSON on the former PM's outrageous one-man mission to Brussels as he pushes for a second referendum

A recent poll showed that only two per cent of the British population have a 'very favourable' opinion of Mr Blair.

It is the sort of approval rating a mass-murderer might be expected to get — which happens to be how many members of his own party describe him, in the wake of the Iraq war.

'Bomb threat' scammers linked to earlier sextortion campaign

Researchers with Cisco's Talos say that the rash of emails floated yesterday demanding that recipients pay a Bitcoin ransom or face the possibility of a bomb attack on their offices are simply an evolution of the scare-tactic extortion scam that surfaced in October of this year.

In that scam, the sender copied passwords from a for-sale list of stolen credentials then sent them to a target claiming to have installed malware on their computer. The victim was told to send money or have compromising videos leaked. Of course, those videos did not exist and there was no malware.

Why are people spending less this Christmas?

Latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show that wages are continuing to rise at their highest level for nearly a decade.

Yet an analysis done for the BBC by the Institute for Fiscal Studies in September shows that on average, people's real annual wages are £800 lower than ten years ago.

Some of the young adults the BBC spoke to said that they were living on less income in 2018 than they did previously, so they don't have much money for Christmas this year.

But wages are not the only reason for this. Many British consumers are also feeling the pinch due to the rising price of groceries and other essentials like energy bills, thanks to inflation and the fall in the pound.

Asos profits hit by fashion price-cutting

Online fashion retailer Asos has warned of weak profits this financial year after "unprecedented" discounting hit its trading in November.

After reports of dismal High Street activity last month, the Asos warning indicates the pain is spreading online.

The firm said cutting prices to match rivals had not shifted more clothes.

In fact, economic uncertainty plus weaker consumer confidence had led to "the weakest growth in online clothing sales in recent years".

Asos shares fell nearly 40% in morning trading.
