Verkauf rationiert: Großbritannien gehen die Eier aus

Supermärkte müssen den Verkauf rationieren – so beschränkt der Einzelhandelsriese Tesco die Abgabe auf drei Packungen pro Kundin bzw. Kunden. Zuvor hatte etwa der Konkurrent ASDA noch stärkere Beschränkungen erlassen – dort werden nur noch zwei Packungen ausgegeben.

Der aktuelle Chef des Stiftungsrates der Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz, Wolfgang Ischinger, hat in einem Interview mit dem Springer-Blatt BILD die Bundesregierung aufgefordert, alles in die Wege zu leiten, um Deutschland in eine „Kriegswirtschaft“ zu führen. Die Bundesrepublik stände erst „erst am Anfang der Zeitenwende“, so der langjährige deutsche Spitzendiplomat und Botschafter in den USA. Die vom ihm nun platzierte Forderung ist mehr als nur ein indirektes Eingeständnis, dass, zumindest nach seinem Verständnis, die Bundesrepublik sich bereits im Krieg mit Russland befindet.

U.S. concerned Russia could use chemical weapons in Ukraine

The U.S. does not have any intelligence to suggest such an attack in Ukraine is imminent, the people said. In fact, many DoD officials believe the fighting will stall during the winter months, with neither side able to take much ground.

But in the case of continued battlefield losses, or a complete collapse of the Russian army, some top officials working on the issue have determined that Moscow might resort to employing chemical weapons — including those the country has been associated with using in the poisoning of Alexei Navalny.

Exclusive: Inside the Military’s Secret Undercover Army

(17. May 2021)

No one knows the program’s total size, and the explosion of signature reduction has never been examined for its impact on military policies and culture. Congress has never held a hearing on the subject.
