Heard a rumour of Obama and Putin having agreed for Russian help on USA territory.
Any thoughts?

How about this analysis:

"Is it true that FEMA signed an agreement to deploy Russian troops to provide security at mass events on U.S. soil? No, this is a fictional claim based on an actual agreement signed by representatives of
FEMA and the Russian Emergency Ministry on June 25, 2013 under which the two countries will bring together and share the expertise of first responders and emergency managers as part of an ongoing collaborative arrangement last renewed in 2007."

"A FEMA spokesperson quoted by the Russian news agency RIA Novosti said there would be "no exchange of security or military personnel" under the June 25 agreement."

News hasn't made MSM yet, but it is plastered all over the internet (google title).
Russia has withdrawn troops from Syria this week (soon in MSM).

Cross posted scaevola.
It wouldn't explain the russian troops on a visit in USA, a little while ago

There are all sorts of liaison visits going on all the time in both directions.

The civilianisation of a Russian naval base has already been reported eg this ABC report that originated with AP

It's part of gods judgment for SCOTUS allowing gay marriage. I know this because it's on Rapture Ready.

Couldn't click on page 2 but interesting nonetheless. Let's hope the Russians have better mediator's skills than those seen in the vicinity Isn't Blair advocating intervention?

Today's BBC article about Russia/US Syria initiative

NATO page on sharing civil emergency planning with Russia. It's not just US co-operating with Russia on this - or indeed many other areas. You can navigate from this link to other areas of NATO/Rissia joint activity.

What access to channels do you have? You seen to be speaking in some weird code. Is this conspiracy theory stuff or for real? Or both??

The same channels as you, some newspapers in the UK and around the world! What weird code or conspiracy? At the G8 Obama wanted to arm the Syrian rebels and Putin the current Syrian regime, with Blair and Kerry pushing for intervention. Russia was stationed in the Med sea and Israel is twitching to go...Now Russia has withdrawn its troop from the Med and it's ready to help the USA in the event of a disaster!
Historically Russia sides with China, and some of the Middle East (Iran, Syria...), in recent days China and Russia have shifted their positions substantially: just an observation.

MSM (main steam media) like the BBC and Sky news tend to behind quite a few days behind in reporting on TV what other newspapers write in other countries: another observation.
