Cherry picking of South African data to say #Omicron is mild ignores a few facts. 1st, SA population is very young, mean age 27 years, and infection milder on the young. 2nd SA experienced a substantial #Beta wave & Beta shares some mutations with Omicron. This together w 1/2
high past infection rates may have provided unique immune memory not seen in countries that did not experience a significant Beta wave. Few other countries had a Beta wave. #Bangladesh was one. Interesting to see impact of omicron there.
Here u can see Australia is more like the UK. Bangladesh, which had a Beta wave later than South Africa, has not yet had a steep rise. Both SA and Bangladesh had significant Beta waves. This may account for some of the differences.

#Bangladesh military delegation recalls #India's efforts in the 1971 Liberation War with thankfulness

A Bangladesh military delegation, which is visiting India for the Vijay Parv celebrations, recalled India's efforts in the 1971 Liberation War with thankfulness.
The military delegation is headed by Major General SM Kamrul Hasan. "The syllabus of our military institutions, as well as the educational institutions, adequately reflects the history of the liberation war.
The history of the liberation war in 1971 is not complete without the story of the Indian side," said Major General Kamrul Hasan of the Bangladesh Army

Starting off with the famous yet wildly misrepresented Battle of Longewala. In this thread I will break down the tactics and weapons used in this epic battle. (1/n)
The battle took place on the night of 4th December 1971 and continued on till 7th December.

Pakistan's objective was to march on from Longewala to Ramgarh and capture Jaisalmer. This would cut off the salient and put India on the defensive on the Western front. (2/n)
For this long march, the Pakistani tanks were carrying extra fuel tanks and with their massive superiority in numbers, weren't expecting strong resistance at Longewala.

The Longewala post sat on a dune offering good defensive positioning and was surrounded by barbed wires. (3/n)

In last 3 yeras #PKR dropped 45% to dollar compared to 3% & 16% drop in #Taka & #INR because when #Bangladesh & #India focused on improving economic fundamentals and let currencies adjust to market, #Pakistan focused on artificial overvaluation (2013-18) through ad hoc solutions.
As a result, they have improved economy at one hand and lower inflation, lower public debt at the other.

We lost on all three.

Exchange rate is a price. You can distort it, but it distorts whole economy. You can hold it for a while, but it gets back with higher costs.
Ignoring economic fundamentals added further to pressure on rupee. And it dropped and dropped more than what would have been if we focused on improving economic fundamentals (case of Bangladesh and India).

@fernanddev @mbachelet @UN_HRC The UN must condemn strongly the Illtreatment and Persecution Of #Hindu Minorities in #Bangladesh. The recent attack on them is systematic and threats are imminent.
The persecution based on religion must stop and Minorities Hindus must be protected
The International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD), establishes the obligations of State parties to respect and ensure racial equality and the right to be free from racial discrimination.
Several other human rights treaties also contain prohibitions on racial discrimination and other forms of discrimination, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

It was meant to be a national holiday and a cultural festival of diversity, a festival that so many of us as non-Hindu but Bengali have shared for centuries in #Bangladesh My girlhood was informed by Sharodio Durga Puja.

Now this is scene for carnage. See @guardian by @HannahEP
Ironically there's so little discussion on the issue. The ethnic minorities in the Chittagong Hill Tracts have already been cleansed. We were silent about @SaveCHT.

Now we remain silent on Hindu cleansing. It's not sad.

Thread 🪡

Yesterday, @CIJ_ICJ handed down its judgment on the #maritimeboundary between #Somalia and #Kenya. This was the first judgment since the Court’s renewal in February 2021 and Judge Donoghue’s election as President (source of all images: @CIJ_ICJ). 👩🏻‍⚖️
Kenya did not appear at the oral proceedings before the ICJ after appearing at the preliminary objections phase (link to preliminary objections judgment below). However, the ICJ could rely on its written submissions, filed before deciding not to appear.…
Somalia and Kenya had very different views on their maritime boundary. Somalia argued that there was no agreed boundary, so that the ICJ had to delimit a boundary by the 3-stage approach in use since the 2009 #BlackSea case (link below, [115]-[122]). 👩🏽‍💼…

Il y a des siècles, l’#Inde était dirigée par les Moghols musulmans, et c'était le pays le plus riche du monde (un quart de l'économie mondiale). Le luxe s'est répandu parmi les dirigeants, ils ont construit et décoré des palais indiens dans la région.
Le Taj Mahal est une preuve aujourd’hui du luxe dans lequel ils vivaient. Les Britanniques #GB sont venus et ont contribué à l'établissement et au soutien des royaumes hindous. Ils ont encouragé les musulmans à l'indépendance des #Moghols et à la formation de royaumes plus petits
(comme le royaume connu sous le nom de famille #Khan) pour les utiliser plus tard. La Grande-Bretagne #GB a vu que le nombre de musulmans en #Inde était plus grand que partout ailleurs, donc au siècle dernier, elle a divisé l'#Inde en #Bangladesh, #Pakistan et l’#Inde actuelle

A thread. Image

4. It occurs in peninsular #Malaysia, #Myanmar, and #Thailand. It is spotted in northeastern states especially in #Tripura, Assam, and Mizoram along with Chittagong hill tracts of #Bangladesh, in parts of China. Image

Some misinterpretation of our #Bangladesh Mask RCT by those who don’t read research, which I’ll ignore, but also some parochial/racist reactions, which I must respond to…
1."Americans experimenting on Bangladeshis to inform Americans”. Sorry, not all work is done to service Westerners. I [co-lead (clearly signaled as last) author], am Bangladeshi. We conducted study to primarily benefit LMICs. Study sites included districts where my family resides
We did NOT withhold masks from control group for research. Even while data collection was being completed, we personally secured donations of 100 million+ masks to distribute for free in 🇧🇩🇮🇳🇵🇰🇳🇵because the research showed positive effects.

युद्ध चाहे हजार साल पहले बीता हो, या आज।औरतें हरदम जीत की ट्रॉफी या हार की याद रहीं

वियतनाम युद्ध में #American सैनिकों ने
- हजारों कम उम्र लड़कियों को हॉर्मोन्स के इंजेक्शन दिए गए ताकि उनका भरा-भरा शरीर सैनिकों को 'एट होम' महसूस कराए
- बाद में 50 हज़ार बच्चे ‘रेप’ से पैदा हुए
#German पुरुष का गर्व तोड़ने के लिए उनकी महिलाओं का बलात्कार

दूसरे विश्व युद्ध के दौरान सोवियत(रूस) की सेना ने घरों से खींच-खींचकर जर्मन औरतें-बच्चियां का गैंगरेप किया। सबका एक ही मकसद था- जर्मन गर्व को तोड़ देना। इस दौरान सेना का सबसे मजबूत पुरुष ‘रेप’ के लिए जोश दिला रहा होता।
1919 के #Ireland वॉर में सैनिकों दुश्मन औरत के बाल छील देते। सिर ढंकने की मनाही थी। सिर मुंडाए चलती औरत गुलामी का इश्तेहार होती। राह चलते कितनी ही बार उसके शरीर को दबोचा जाता।
- पुरुष लेबर कैंपों में थे और छोटे बच्चे घर पर इंतजार करते हुए- उन मां और दीदी का जो कभी लौट नहीं सकीं।

Let's have a thread on rocket artillery.


The Good News: Everybody likes them!!!

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

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!!!
