When Salinger entered Hürtgen, he crossed into a nightmare world. The forest was more heavily fortified than anyone had guessed. The Germans employed tree bursts, which exploded well above the soldiers’ heads, resulting in a shower of shrapnel and shredded tree limbs. Then there was the weather—either drenching wet or burning cold. Nearly half of the 2,517 casualties suffered by the 12th Infantry in Hürtgen were due to the elements. Hürtgen is viewed by historians as among the greatest Allied debacles of the war.

THE DURAN—The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how shifty, corrupt Congressman Adam Schiff folded and had to release information from 53 declassified transcripts of witnesses that testified before Congress regarding the FBI’s Russia probe into the Trump campaign.
The decision for Schiff to publish the 6,000 pages of transcripts comes after a showdown with Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who stated in a letter on Wednesday that if Adam Schiff does not make the transcripts public then he will release them himself.

TP WILKINSON—The core of the complaint– to the extent it is not simply sophomoric– is that President Donald Trump refused to execute the foreign policy of the United States. This is also called the “national interest” in the bill– a recognised euphemism for whatever corporate objectives can be imposed through the regime and what it expropriates from ordinary people both domestically and abroad. This is patently ridiculous. It has become a matter of conventional if not explicit constitutional law that the foreign policy of the United States is the prerogative of the Executive, the President of the United States.

PETER KOENIG—If democracy would be democracy, and the people of Europe would be asked about their allegiance to NATO, the overwhelming majority, an average close to 70% would say they want OUT of NATO. In some countries, like Italy, this percentage is possibly in excess of 80%.

RAINER SHEA—Being so far unable to militarily achieve regime change in Syria, Iran, Venezuela, or any of its other rival nations, the U.S. is increasingly resorting to sanctions and manufactured internal unrest to try to subdue them. The U.S. maintains a covert Syria-to-Xinjiang pipeline of violent religious extremism which is aimed at radicalizing Uighur Muslims, resulting in heightened threats of terrorist attacks within China. This is connected to the Hong Kong protests, which the U.S. has been funding and encouraging through agitation propaganda. The U.S. keeps escalating sanctions against its adversaries, especially Russia and China due to their crucial role in militarily protecting smaller countries like Syria and Venezuela.
