Germany’s Alternative for Germany (AfD) party wants the government to relax gun laws to allow citizens to protect their lives amid rising security concerns, its chairwoman told local media Saturday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The government has been making moves to end illegal arms sales amid reports that the Munich gunman, who killed nine people at the shopping mall last month, had bought a pistol and ammo via such website.
“Many citizens feel less and less safe. Every law-abiding citizen must be able to defend themselves, their family and friends,” AfD’s Frauke Petry told the German newspaper Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung.
Petry accused the government of making devastating cuts to police funding and jobs, which increased their response times and left people vulnerable.
At the same time the federal authorities have been tearing down border controls, she said, leading to an upsurge in cross-border criminality.
“The AfD is the only party in Germany that opposes stricter gun laws. This will hit honest citizens and not those who buy guns on darknet.”
The darknet refers to Internet websites where people can exchange currency anonymously. This makes these networks more appealing to criminals, including drug and gun traffickers.
Kremlin Presses Turkey for Access to NATO’s Incirlik Air Base, Home to US Nukes
Russian officials have reached out to Ankara to request access to the American-built base as a convenient launch pad for airstrikes in the Syrian theater, but it remains to be seen whether such cooperation will roil NATO’s feathers.
Russia has called on Turkey to provide access to NATO’s Incirlik Air Base, the critical launch pad for US and coalition airstrikes in Syria, in a bid to expand the country’s influence in the Middle East and to further the goal of combatting radical jihadist groups, primarily Daesh and al-Nusra, that threaten peace and stability in Syria.
The base is home to at least 50 US B-61 nuclear warheads each carrying the potential destructive capacity of 100 times the Hiroshima bomb, a reality that led to heightened concern among American officials during, and in the wake of, the failed coup attempt of the Erdogan regime.
Sitting only 65 miles from the Syrian border, defense analysts, including the former White House arms control official under Bill Clinton, have cautioned that these weapons are not safe from the Daesh terrorist organization and other hostile elements who could conceivably breach the perimeter if Americans are left unaided by Turkish police forces.
That fear likely grew more elevated as Turkey has drifted towards Russia in the wake of the coup with senior officials, including the Turkish President himself, insinuating if not outright claiming that the United States played a hand in the failed attempt to overthrow the government and with a brewing diplomatic row developing between Washington and Ankara over the State Department’s refusal to clear the extradition of Fethullah Gulen, who has been alleged to have been the mastermind of the failed coup.
The brewing situation between the United States and Russia have opened the door for the reestablishment of relations between Moscow and Ankara including increased defense and strategic cooperation in Syria.
“It just remains to come to an agreement with Erdogan that we get the NATO base Incirlik as [our] primary airbase,” Senator Igor Morozov, a member of the upper house’s committee on international affairs said reports the British newspaper The Times. He explained that the development would enable the Russian air force to engage in “constant bombing” of Daesh and other jihadist groups to bring the conflict to a resolution faster.
“You’ll see, the next base will be Incirlik,” he told Izvestia after the Kremlin revealed this week that its bombers had started flying out of Iran to launch attack on Syria. “This will be one more victory for Putin.”
Another Senator, Viktor Ozerov, told RIA Novosti, “It’s not certain that Russia needs Incirlik, but such a decision would be seen as a real willingness on Turkey’s part to cooperate with Russia in the war against terrorism in Syria.”
ALERT: Germany Tells Public to STOCK UP ON FOOD & WATER… What Do They KNOW??
by Bix Weir, Road to Roota, SGT Report.com:
Germany holds one the triggers to the collapse the system. They have had it since 2012. I talked about it when they held meetings about trying to get their gold back from the US Fed. Their power lies in pulling the derivative time bomb held at Deutsche Bank.
So when the German government tells their people to stock up on 10 days of food and water because of potential “terrorist strikes” my mind immediately goes to my BS Meter which says…HIGH!
2016 is one of the worst years for the globalist agenda in decades. Think about it: first Trump wrecked most of their US candidates, then Brexit tore the EU plutocrats a new orifice, and there’s still over 4 months left to go!
Every time that globalism has been defeated, it has been at the hands of nationalist and populist revolts among the “peasantry”, and another such defeat is now looming for them in Europe, and they know it! In today’s article I’ll tell you what will likely happen in their next defeat, and what’s more, I’ll give you the date on which it will occur.
