Sull'affare #ENI #Draghi #Algeria, è partita una gigantesca campagna per spargere la notizia falsa che #Sonatrach, la #ENI algerina, sarebbe al 49% della russa #Gazprom e che il gas che compriamo sarebbe quindi russo.
Vediamo perché sono balle?
1/10
Oltre ai portatori di acqua professionisti, la disinformatja, che vuole convincervi dell'ineluttabilità della dipendenza dal gas #russo, è aiutata più o meno consapevolmente da innumerevoli volontari che diffondono fake news allo scopo di influenzare l'opinione pubblica.
2/10
Iniziamo col dire che #Sonatrach come si può verificare in 2 minuti è al 100% dell''#Algeria per legge e che #Gazprom ad oggi non tira fuori 1 metro cubo di gas nel paese, come si evince dal loro stesso sunto delle operazioni.

Cosa s'intende con #pricecap sul gas?

non è chiaro
perché chi lo propone non lo ha mai spiegato

Certo è invece che si andrebbe a ripercuotere a cascata sulle altre fonti

"incognite e certezze di un intervento a gamba tesa sui mercati" di Alberto Clò

🧵
rivistaenergia.it/2022/06/price-…
se con price cap si intende la fissazione di un livello massimo di prezzo di importazione

significa in pratica la richiesta di uno #sconto ai venditori

non solo a #Gazprom, ma anche gli altri che stiamo corteggiando

🧵
rivistaenergia.it/2022/06/price-…
Una mossa che potrebbe incontrare il rifiuto della controparte (tanto più in un "mercato del venditore")

e che non rafforza la nostra #affidabilità di acquirenti, essendo al di fuori delle normali clausole contrattuali

With #Algeria in the news, with back-to-back delegations in Algiers, and with lots of folks writing about Algeria for the first time, here are some thoughts.

A short thread 🧵

1/9
One of the problems with #Algeria analysis (and by extension, other countries’ policies toward Algeria) is that it is prone to misinterpretations (at best) and conspiracies (at worst) because so little is known or understood about the policymaking process in Algeria itself.

2/9
It is said that nature abhors a vacuum and the same applies to #Algeria analysis. The absence of explanations for (and understandings of) how Algeria makes policy creates (compels?) a space for unfounded or ungrounded interpretations.

The original thread on what you are not being told about #EU sanctions on #oil has led many people to address many useful questions. The main questions are : tehnical (why is it so hard to make the transition ) , geopolitical (what we can expect) & operational (what other /1
solutions are possible). Assuming the #EU sanctions against #Russia will be maintained here is what we will happen technically, geopolitically, operationally. 1) technically speaking it is very complicated to change The original thread is here. /2

OPEC tells the #EU it's not possible to replace potential #Russian oil supply loss, as per #Ukraine'spresident request to all European state leaders.
reuters.com/business/energ…
The #EU Commission is drafting proposals for an oil embargo on #Russia, the foreign ministers of #Ireland, #Lithuania and the #Netherlands said at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg, although there was no agreement to ban #Russian crude.
#Australia, #Canada and the #US, who are less reliant on Russian supply than Europe, have already banned Russian oil purchases. EU countries are split, given their higher dependency and the potential for the move to push up already high energy prices in #Europe.

So, the #UAE is the first to meet in-person, in the open with #Assad -- the 21st century's #Hitler.

Not a good look for a foreign ministry that in its own words, was established to "support internationally recognized morals & ethics."
As I wrote several weeks ago, the path towards #Assad's normalization may have been partially paved, but the ambiguity of the #Biden admin's #Syria policy & its inaction has provided an opening.

Green or orange light is irrelevant -- the effect is clear.

Some suggest the recent surge in engagement with #Assad is an implementation of the often discussed "step for step" approach.

Nonsense.

#Syria's regime is giving nothing in return for normalizing moves by the #UAE, #Jordan, #Algeria & others -- it remains as brutal as ever.

Lots of pretty bad Anglophone commentary on #Algeria these days, but this one in Newsweek has got to be (among) the worst.

A thread.

I’m a strong believer in sticking in your lane.

@GordonGChang should probably have done so.

His latest on #Algeria is all over the road and recklessly so.

Let’s start with the second sentence. First, #Algeria didn’t "create" the crisis with #Morocco

Second, I’m not sure Algiers sees it as much of a crisis.

Do you think Jews would invite Nazi Germany to build their Grand Synagogue?

Algeria asked China, supposedly carrying out Muslim cleansing (#Uighurgenocide) to build world's 3rd Grand Mosque to last 500-1000 years which China successfully accomplished in 2020.
2/ Project Overview from China's CSCEC website:

On February 8, 2012, China Construction signed a contract with the Grand Mosque Construction and Management Authority of Algeria for the construction of the Grand Mosque project, with a main contract value of USD 1.5 billion.
3/The original design consortium is KSP-KUK from Germany and the current design institute is EGIS from France. The project adopts the cooperation mode of general contracting and implements European and Algerian standards.

#Pakistan was never a "hired gun" in any war, and it has entered many wars - near and far - for its interests, like any other nation. The narrative of a hired gun is a claptrap; earns political points, but is demeaning for the country, insulting, and self-defeating. /1
History is debatable, but #Pakistan smartly dragged the #US and the free world into a war against the Soviet Union in #Afghanistan; & rightly so. Pak benefited from the project, and also paid a heavy price. The actions of a smart nation that effectively defended its interests. /2
#Pakistan joined the #Bosnia war vs #Serbia+#Russia; helped #Azerbaijan vs #Armenia, #Kuwait vs #Iraq; #Jordan vs militants; supported freedom movements in #Algeria+#Tunisia; backed Western allies in Suez Crisis, helped Kashmiris, & helped counter communism in Arab countries. /3

In sum:

1) Significant climate change impacts on food systems are already happening, & the risk of multi-breadbasket failures is increasing,

2) We will need to adapt, but

3) There are limits to adaptation - we urgently, urgently need to cut GHG emissions & draw down CO2.

Great to team up with my esteemed @CarnegieEndow colleague @andrewsweiss for this de-mythologizing of Russian military, political & economic influence in the Middle East, covering #Syria, #Israel, #Lebanon, #Algeria, #Libya, & #Egypt. 1/carnegieendowment.org/2021/08/31/rea…
Moscow's activism in the MENA is certainly formidable: it has adroitly deployed military forces in Syria & Libya & engaged with actors that are off limits to the West. A flat decision-making structure allow Russia to operate nimbly & without concern for domestic blowback. 2/
Russia’s opportunistic interventions across the region have adeptly exploited U.S. missteps, filled vacuums, and pandered to the insecurities & ambitions of local actors--all while trying to enrich itself along the way. 3/

Can we say that what is happening in #Afghanistan is the #EndOfAnEra? Yes, in many different ways... (thread) >
First, it's the end of this 20-year era in US/world politics bracketed by 2 searing, much-photographed incidents that each involved (a) airplanes & (b) desperate people falling out of the sky. >
So we can say it's the end of this era of the US's attempt to invade & then completely control/remake #Afghanistan. Many Americans (solipsistic, as usual) compare this solely to #Vietnam1975. However, >

THREAD!

Let's have a thread on rocket artillery.

#RocketArtillery

The Good News: Everybody likes them!!!

The Bad News: The US military and major western powers can't compete 😒

1/--
The current trend among militaries who are supplied by national "defense" industries with rocket artillery is to go bigger...and bigger.

Don't look at #NorthKorea

How about #India ?

The pay off for having the manufacturing small, medium, and large caliber munitions is one of the most rewarding for countries obsessed with their national security.

If you can build small rockets, you can build large ones,and then develop an independent spacw program!!!
