And toxic ghost from the past appears as DoD approvs #depleteduranium export to Ukraine: despite US overstating the case, the use of DU would only complicate conflict-pollution in #Ukraine and counters the global norm against its use 1/x…
What past wars showed was that DU was not decisive. In the Gulf Wars, most tanks were destroyed with Hellfires and Maverick missiles. Tungsten rounds still are able to destroy Russian tanks, and DU was no silver bullet. 2/x Image
What our @PAXforpeace research in #Iraq found was that the US was uninterested in clean-up and remediation of DU and contaminated materials, putting civilians at risk of exposure, in particular children playing on tanks and scrapmetal workers. 3/x… Image

1. è estremamente importante che un movimento per la pace adotti la tecnologia giusta affinché i suoi membri comunichino con ragionevole sicurezza fin dall'inizio.Ecco perché è deleterio usare Gmail
2. comunicare attraverso Gmail per un movimento per la pace è come organizzare una raccolta di sangue e affidarla a Dracula.
Le comunicazioni via Gmail sono immediatamente accessibili alla #NSA,come hanno permesso di dimostrare i file di #Snowden
3. se voi dite: ma sei paranoica, a chi vuoi che interessino le comunicazioni dei pacifisti italiani, beh,avete gravi problemi a capire la realtà

1.Quello che si sta realizzando in Italia,senza alcuna resistenza politica,culturale e mediatica,è quello per cui facevano ENORMI pressioni Ronald Spogli e Elizabeth Dibble,i diplomatici (ambasciatore e chargé d'affaires,rispettivamente)inviati a Roma dall'amm. di George W. Bush
2. i cablo della diplomazia USA rivelati da #WikiLeaks-e per cui Julian #Assange NON ha più conosciuto la libertà e sta perdendo la vita- permettono di ricostruire in modo efficace quello che diplomatici USA come Spogli e Dibble volevano dall' Italia e che ora si sta realizzando
3. Nella visione dei diplomatici inviati a Roma dall'amministrazione Bush,l'Italia era un paese che spendeva troppo per #StatoSociale e troppo poco per #MissioniMilitari e #NATO.E questo doveva assolutamente cambiare

And if you need a catch up on yesterday's news, here's the link for the start of Saturday's thread.

So it's Day 417 of the war, and I have to say "Khrystos Voskres" (Christ Is Risen) or "Happy Easter" to all my readers from #Ukraine - and indeed #Russia if they are in the minority which opposes war.
The same wishes to all Orthodox believers celebrating Easter today.

@POTUS has a looong history of carrying a big stick only to have it turned to sawdust.

#IRAQ #AFGHANISTAN #SYRIA and now #Ukraine

Everything this guy touches internationally turns to shit

Name one international event that Biden part of that turned out good?
He is an aweful diplomat - the SPR was created to help buy time for america in the event of an extreme oil shortage like what happened in 70s.

What did Biden do with that time? He continued to piss off oil producing nations, and THEN opened up a new front of war with RUS.

1800مقبروں کی قیمٹی سامان کےساتھ حیران کن دریافت
1922میں برطانوی ماہرآثارقدیمہ لیونارڈ وولی (C. Leonard Woolley) نے میسوپوٹیمیا (جدید عراق)کےقدیم شہر Ur کی کھدائی شروع کی۔
ایک سال تک اس نے اپنا ابتدائی سروے مکمل کر لیا اور تباہ شدہ زیگورات کے قریب ایک خندق کھودنے پر اس کے کارکنوں کی ٹیم کو سونے اور قیمتی پتھروں سے بنی قبروں اور زیورات کے شواہد ملے۔ انہوں نے اسے "سونے کی خندق" کہا گیا۔ آہستہ آہستہ تقریباً 1,800 قبروں کا پردہ فاش کیا۔
زیادہ تر قبریں
سادہ گڑھوں پر مشتمل تھیں جن کی لاش مٹی کے تابوت میں رکھی گئی تھی یا سرکنڈے کی چٹائی میں لپٹی ہوئی تھی۔ برتن، زیورات اورذاتی اشیاء جسم کو گھیرے ہوئے تھے۔ تاہم، سولہ قبریں غیر معمولی تھیں۔ یہ صرف سادہ گڑھےنہیں تھے بلکہ پتھرکےمقبرےتھےجن میں اکثرکئی کمرہ نما دکھائی دیتےتھے۔

1. uno dei più grandi contribuiti dei file #WikiLeaks su guerre in #Afghanistan e in #Iraq per cui Julian #Assange non ha più conosciuto la libertà è che ci hanno permesso di confrontare quello che accadeva sui teatri di guerra e quello che raccontava la macchina della propaganda
2. se hai passato 14 anni a leggere file #WikiLeaks su quello che accadeva sui teatri di guerra in #Afghanistan e #Iraq e quello che raccontava macchina della propaganda, sei vaccinato a vita contro ogni #propagandaMilitare di qualunque provenienza: atlantica,russa, cinese, TUTTA

In an overnight session, the #Iraq parliament agreed on amendments to the 2018 electoral law, thus bringing an end to the new electoral system that was put in place in 2021. A summary of the amendments here (thread)
Following the experiment in 2021 with plurality voting in smaller multi-member constituencies, #Iraq now returns to the system that prevailed previously of proportionality voting based on a modified St. Lague formula in bigger constituencies again.
The differences between the two #Iraq electoral systems shouldn't be exaggerated. Even with smaller constituencies, the multi-member principle retained a degree of proportionality in 2021.
