1) @Puolustusvoimat released a trailer for an upcoming training video – Taistelukenttä 2020 – the other day. It depicts an escalating #turpo/#säkpol scenario. Some of my observations below (the videos are put together rather purposefully).

2) The video starts with a cyber or SOF operation to disturb electrical grid, and a “newsflash” on Finland being subjected to aggressive military and non-military operations --> std. thinking but good reminder that escalation doesn't 'build up to' mil force, it is integral to it.
3) at 0:15 “FDF begins mobilisation” – the political decision to do so would have many ramifications & could not be done in secret. However, prior to mob. FDF would have increased readiness and used instantly available forces...

Statement from #Iraq|i PM:

Shortly after midnight on Wednesday 8/1/2020, we received an official verbal message from the Islamic Republic of #Iran that the Iranian response to the assassination of the martyr Qassem Soleimani had begun or It will start in a little while
Rough translation of the full statement, this was done via google. So it'll be slightly off but it gives you context.
It appears #Finland knew the strikes were coming, therefore I have no doubt the #US were completely aware of the incoming missiles, hence 0 casualties.

Seriously, #Finland?

This is awful, if true. A state should respect the rights of its citizens in all cases, not put life-and-death decisions about those citizens to a public referendum on social media.

What’s next, public hangings based on the volume of stadium cheers?
The Instagram post is certainly on her account, and I’m told by two sources who speak Finnish that this is indeed what she’s saying.

Seriously bad judgement here.
Dear @KatriKulmuni, Could you explain, please?

Did you know?

“For over 75 years, the Finnish government has gifted mothers-to-be with a baby box. This starter kit comes with everything expectant and adoptive parents could hope for, helping them seamlessly adjust to life with a newborn.”
“Typically, it comes with around 60 products incl seasonally-appropriate indoor and outdoor clothing, nighttime necessities like a sleeping bag and small foam mattress.”

No this video isn't from the middle east! This video has been taken in the streets of #Paris in #France, where Muslims in #Europe think they are oppressed screaming "allahu akbar" in public. Against a campaign to make a law to prosecute people for Islamophobia in the #EU.
#Update: Countries that are suggesting that kind of a law are.

1. "More people say openly that #Erdogan's attitude reminds them of #Hitler."
Several hundred people, including several dozen civilians, have been killed in #Syria since the beginning of the #Turkish attack. About 200,000 people had to leave their homes.
2. Drastic executions of civilians are carried out. #ISIS fighters are escaping from prisons with the help of the #Turkish army. The whole world watches Erdogan's actions in disbelief and fear. Many countries and organizations are taking action against the Turkish operation.
3. #Trump, who probably wants to regain his image by imposing sanctions on three Turkish ministers, also belongs to them.
In addition, #Turkey may face further consequences:
#UEFA is sharply responding to the political provocations of Turkish players in the match against France.

Trump is totally unraveling. After berating a reporter, @realDonaldTrump rudely hijacks a question for #Finland’s🇫🇮president, then falsely takes credit for a “win” against the @WTO in a case started 10 yrs ago.

Pathetic and embarrassing.🤬
#TrumpMeltdown
At this same cringe-worthy presser, Trump falsely claims the WH’s #Ukrainegate call memo is "exact" and "word for word,” even though the 1st page says it’s NOT a #transcript, and it’s obvious that text from the 30 minute call was omitted.🙄

#TrumpMeltdown
😱Trump berates reporter @jeffmason1 for pressing Trump to answer a question about the #Ukrainegate call, then demands that Mason ask #Finland’s🇫🇮president a question.

This presser is shockingly bad, even by Trump standards.😳

19. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

1) National broadcaster @yleuutiset asked Finnish party heads about their security policy views (internal and external) - elections on April 14th - some thoughts on it:

Bottom line: Consensus is pretty broad on many issues.
2) there is some spread on whether current conscript/national service system should be changed. Interestingly some parties that frequently speak of #genderequality don't think it applies here. See potential opening for 'call up' for everyone but service still voluntary for women.
3) All parties oppose idea of easing sanctions placed on #Russia, due to ongoing war in #Ukraine.

--> This view will not change (even if individual parliamentarians sometimes flirt with the idea), it is too central to the position #Finland has staked out in EU.

"Catalonia and the trial on the referendum: a challenge for the EU". Conferència conjunta amb el president @QuimTorraiPla a Brussel·les

📲 Pots seguir-la en directe aquí ➡️ bit.ly/2NbLWBK

#CatalanEU
Last Tuesday, a political trial against members of the previous @govern, against social leaders of the main civil organizations of #Catalonia and against the former president of the @parlamentcat began in Spain #CatalanEU
The simple fact that this trial could take place brings #ShametoSpain and, therefore, to the entire #EuropeanUnion, whose main institutions have chosen to remain silent, when facing such a disgraceful situation where democracy is at stake #CatalanEU

THREAD #Russia 14 POINTS #Maps+ critical #Geography #Geopolitics. Here is my hot take on “Understanding Russia,” a new book by Marlene Laruelle (@PONARS) and Jean Radvanyi (2018). I hardly agree w/ all "French Eurasia" & "anti-Russophobe" arguments; it IS worth a CLOSE read. 1/16
1. (1814/5-2014) Talleyrand 1814-5 & Keynes 1919 argument, & vs. Obama’s “regional” neo-containment (2008-14): Defeated Russia’s greatpowerness (derzhavnost’) is NOT avoidable. Sidelining a mil-nuclear & gas-rich power is dangerous. (Merkel: re: Putin in “another world.”) 2/16
2. (1954-91) One can consider, for the sake of argument, a postwar Moscow-Paris-Washington axis. The “disease” that neo-Empire Russia(ns) have is "trauma," a kind of geo-body loss, historically akin to French postcolonial retrenchment in proto-EU after the Algerian War. 3/16
