“The most hated sort [of moneymaking], and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural use of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest.

And this term ‘usury,’ which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money, because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of all modes of making money this is the most unnatural.” -- Aristotle

One of the longest waiting periods of the Ukraine war has finally ended, as the Western powers announced, during the NATO summit in DC, that the first F-16 jet fighters are arriving and will be operational during the summer—leaving the expectation of an operational start in less than six weeks.

Kiev will finally get the fourth-generation fighter jets to fight Russia — but in far fewer numbers than it had hoped and asked.

The Kremlin on Saturday warned that the deployment of US missiles in Germany could make European capitals targets for Russian missiles in a repeat of Cold War-style confrontation.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov spoke of a "paradox" in which "Europe is a target for our missiles, our country is a target for US missiles in Europe".

"We have enough capacity to contain these missiles but the potential victims are the capitals of these countries," he said, speaking to Russian state television channel Russia 1.

PM'S HORROR Sir Keir Starmer speaks out after Donald Trump rally shooter killed supporter as he tried to assassinate ex-president unewsy
SIR Keir Starmer has spoken out after a shooter tried to assassinate former US President Donald Trump at a rally - killing one.
LUCKY ESCAPE Incredible moment Trump turns his head at the last second in life-saving move after shooter opened fire at rally unewsy
DRAMATIC footage has captured the moment Donald Trump made a "life-saving move" at the last second - right before he was shot. The former president was seen turning his head around slightly just before a bullet struck his ear - a lucky move that potentially saved him from fatal injuries.
SECURITY at the rally where former President Donald Trump was shot on Saturday allegedly ignored a warning from a witness who claims he saw the shooter. The eyewitness said he and his friends warned cops "three or four minutes" before the bullets rang out, which narrowly missed Trump's head and killed someone in the audience.
THE attempted assassination of former President Donald Trump marks the biggest US security failing in over four decades, an expert told The Sun. Secret Service agents charged with protecting those at the event committed a "colossal failure" at the Pennsylvania rally, the security analyst said.
THE gunman who attempted to assassinate Donald Trump at a Pennsylvania rally on Saturday night and was quickly shot dead has been named. Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20, was "neutralised" by Secret Service snipers shortly after opening fire at the open-air event in Butler.

Russia is aware of the dangers coming from the “Kiev regime,” including its threats to assassinate President Vladimir Putin, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

The spokesman was approached for comment on assassination threats against the Russian leader that had been voiced by the head of Kiev’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR), Kirill Budanov, in a recent interview. Moscow is aware of the threats and takes measures accordingly, Peskov said.
