1/ Dear all, many among you have asked me about my opinion on #oil, #logistics, #pipelines, price movements and a reality check on the #german #embargo plans. So I decided to make another explanatory thread. Grab a beer, this may take a while to read.
2/ It has often been said that oil is a global #commodity that travels on the seas. That view is not wrong, but incomplete. In fact, much oil is shipped by pipelines, on all continents. For an imcomplete but illustrative overview, see
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_o…
3/ Most pipelines either distribute incoming seaborne supplies to inland consumers (e.g., refineries), or they route domestically produced oil to seaports where it is loaded on #tankers.

On February 26 @ZelenskyyUa and @DmytroKuleba announced the creation of the International Legion, open to foreign volunteers. About what the influx of foreign fighters to Ukraine looked like after 2014 and what to expect in this regard now - in the thread below.
#THREAD 1/26
Organizationally, the International Legion is to be included in the Territorial Defense Battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, reporting to @DefenceU. Its ranks will be joined by foreigners who want to come to #Ukraine and fight #Russia.

2/26
The decision opens a wide window for the second wave of foreign volunteers in #Ukraine. While in the years 2014-2019 (approximate dates) there was an influx of foreign fighters, in this case, however, we can talk more about potential contractors.

According to the United States, on February 16, 2022, Russia is to launch a military attack on Ukraine.
According to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, after 24 hours, Russia will impose war on Ukraine.

In view of these emergencies and the war situation, on the other hand,
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is about to leave for an important visit to Russia. And Russian President Vladimir Putin has assured that he will not carry out any military action during the meeting.
What is the situation now that Ukraine and the United States are spreading speculation around the world that Russia will impose war?
Their motives are clear.

Today marks 4 yrs of #IndiasGlocalLeader. So, here's a thread on how .@ncbn & #NTR's bonhomie grew.
.
.
#ChandrababuNaidu was youngest minister in T. Anjaiah’s cabinet in 1980...

#ChandrababuNaidu #AndhraPradesh #Telangana #CBNBiography #JoharNTR #TDP .@JaiTDP #TeluguPolitics
Between 1980 & 1983, Naidu served as a minister with diverse portfolios - archives, cinematography,
technical education, animal husbandry & minor irrigation. A dynamic young man to some and
a leader to others, #ChandrababuNaidu rose rapidly in politics.

#IndiasGlocalLeader #CBN
#ChandrababuNaidu was a huge admirer of Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s (NTR) films & adored him as a person. When he was minister for cinematography, Naidu met NTR’s son N. Jaykrishna (noted cinematographer) & sought to set up meeting with his fav actor.

Why Do We Need A Government In Exile? Rationale:

Because (a) the Government-in-Power has lost the legitimacy to govern on legal, political and socio-economic grounds and (b) the conventional opposition approach does not rise to the state of emergency #Eritrea is facing.

Thread.
(2) In 1992, #Eritrean Peoples’ Liberation Front (EPLF) issued a Proclamation 23/1992 that
defined the Structure, Power, and Function of the Provisional Government of Eritrea (PGE).
(3) The Proclamation unequivocally stated that TGE shall govern “until the #Eritrean people
decides its rights to self-determination through a plebiscite and until a constitutional
government is established." The mandate lasted until the successful conduct of the 1993 referendum.

I just finished a call with a journo wanting to ask about #Pompeo's moves to recognize colonial settlements as part of Israel, to decry #BDS, and to collapse anti #Zionism and anti Semitism. A few thoughts. #THREAD
Re #BDS: It is not the core of progressive organizing or the heart of a movement, it is one of the few tactics left available to Palestinians and their allies as other tactics have been steadily and systematically maligned.
The US and Israel have always rejected #ArmedResistance, enshrined in Additional Protocol I (1977), as terroristic regardless of actual targets, namely military, and the PLO surrendered that right in 1993 in exchange for entering into the trap of the #PeaceProcess.

UNSOM, UN mission formed to assist AMISOM, focusing broadly on politics and security. In 2018, #Somalia’s government worked with international actors to develop transition plan. Assessment on five regional states indicated effective local security forces and weaker SNA.
#Somalia’s national security council has endorsed a transition plan which had three phases: phase 1, up to 6/19, phase two, 6/19-12/19, phase 3, 1/20-12/21. The council of ministers of Somalia and UN Security Council have endorsed the plan too. The plan had three areas of focus

1) THREAD: What to expect if the #US 🇺🇸withdraws from #NATO? At the Körber #PolicyGame, we discussed this scenario w/ high-level officials and experts in coop w/ @IISS_org - here are the summarized results for the Twitterati community: (have mercy, it’s my first thread!)
2) We wanted to know: How would Europeans react in such a situation?What are interests and red lines? Thus, we invited a 🇫🇷, 🇩🇪, 🇵🇱,🇬🇧, and 🇺🇸 team to play our scenario. Crisis in the #South, Crisis in the #East - were #Europeans able to get their act together w/out the 🇺🇸? 💪 🇪🇺
3) The short answer is: willing yes ❕but able❔ First, most teams focused on reversing a #US withdrawal from #NATO by all possible means, offering the 🇺🇸concessions that were unthinkable before - from #trade to #energy. But what if that doesn’t help? 🤔

This is the dilemma, & the sociopolitical & socioeconomic crisis of identity that is now playing-out in front of the watching world, via the impasse of the Transitional Military Council (TMC) & “The People” that are STILL Protesting on the streets after Omer Al-Bashir’s ousting
from power.

In Khartoum (formerly within a united-Sudan), the mixing of politics with ethnicity has ALWAYS been the root cause of problems.
Islam & Politics only became a factor in the mid 1980s, with the Bashir/NIF partnership; & all just as a desperate attempt at domestic

2) I can't wait to read his forthcoming book on Frank Yerby, a prolific Black novelist who wrote about the antebellum South. #Yerby was the 1st African-American to sell more than a million copies of a book. @SilasLapham
3) He is currently a @FulbrightSchlrs in Norway (European friends - he's available for lectures!), & would be wonderful addition to any college or university next year. I can attest - he's a kind friend & a wonderful colleague.

Keep up the amazing work, Matthew!
