From April 1st to July 15th, citizens of Russia aged between 18 and 27 years old will be called up for military service if they are not in reserves already and are subject to military service.
“The Government of the Russian Federation, the executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation and draft commissions ensure the implementation of activities related to the conscription of citizens of the Russian Federation,” the document said on the Kremlin website on March 30th .
The decree comes into force on the day of its official publication.

We really have to laugh at what is going on inside Ukraine.
The Russians have now verified western journalists are “riff-raff” and that the US is “arrogant and in complete violation of international law” concerning its actions on Venezuela.
The US then sends B52s to Europe to threaten Russia.
It’s too bad John Bolton, the Russians aren’t leaving Venezuela any time soon and US foreign policy in Europe is going to run into serious problems as Italy snubs the EU and joins China’s Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) signing a deal with China. What is the US going to do? Go to war on the world?
Have we missed something altogether about US strategy? Does the USA have a “coherent military, commercial and diplomatic strategy?” Does the US have its own objectives that is it advancing patiently, and is it crowned with successes as Thierry Meyssan observes?

Empire of Chaos in Hybrid War Overdrive
The Trump administration’s foreign policy may be easily deconstructed as a crossover between The Sopranos and late-night comedy, writes Pepe Escobar.

Is this the Age of Anxiety? The Age of Stupidity? The Age of Hybrid War? Or all of the above?
Dick Cheney’s Global War on Terror (GWOT) is back, metastasized as a hybrid mongrel.
But GWOT would not be GWOT without a Wild West scarecrow. Enter Hamza bin Laden, son of Osama. On the same day the State Department announced a $1 million bounty on his head, the so- called “UN Security Council IS and Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee” declared Hamza the next al-Qaeda leader.
Since January 2017, Hamza has been a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the State Department – on par with his deceased Dad, back in the early 2000s. The Beltway intel community “believes” Hamza resides “in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region.”
Remember these are the same people who “believed” former Taliban leader Mullah Omar resided in Quetta, Baluchistan, when in fact he was safely ensconced only a few miles away from a massive U.S. military base in Zabul, Afghanistan.
Considering that Jabhat al-Nusra, or al-Qaeda in Syria, for all practical purposes, was defined as no more than “moderate rebels” by the Beltway intel community, it’s safe to infer that new scarecrow Hamza is also a “moderate”. And yet he’s more dangerous than vanished fake Caliph Abu Baqr al-Baghdadi. Talk about a masterful example of culture jamming.
Show Me The Big Picture
A hefty case can be made that the Empire of Chaos currently has no allies; it’s essentially surrounded by an assortment of vassals, puppets and comprador 5thcolumnist elites professing varied degrees of – sometimes reluctant – obedience.

And the US is demanding Russia remove its military from Venezuela?
What are your sons and daughters going to fight and die for? “The American way of life”? “Cheaper gas at the pump?” “Democracy?”
