We are heading back to bipolar/multipolar world, is it good/bad 4 int community only time will tell. Wht we r certainly seeing is more aggression on part of nations, specially 1 thats tryin 2 go into bipolar world or makin presence felt thts #China
They (China) are becoming more n more aggressive and we share land borders with them. Its time for us to start looking at our strategies as to how we are going to deal with the two borders... aggressive adversaries, Pak on Western front & China on the North: CDS Gen Bipin Rawat
We need to also start looking at transformation for the betterment and ensuring the national security architecture that we want to evolve is capable of handling the threats that are emerging. To do this we need jointmanship amongst all the security forces: Gen Rawat at @iicdelhi

Ενδιαφέρουσα η συνάντηση Σίσι-Μπένετ, η πρώτη σε επίπεδο ηγεσίας μεταξύ #Egypt και #Israel μέσα σε μια δεκαετία και μετά τα γεγονότα του 2011 αλλά και τα Abraham Accords.

Ακολουθεί thread για το τι σηματοδοτεί για #Greece & #Cyprus
σε πρώτη ανάλυση η συνάντηση έρχεται να υπενθυμίσει την βασική αρχιτεκτονική ασφάλειας στην Μέση Ανατολή η οποία στηρίζεται στις υγιείς διμερείς σχέσεις Καίρου-Τελ Αβίβ μετά το Καμπ Ντέιβιντ οι οποίες σε μια δεκαετία πέρασαν από σημαντικά ορόσημα την περίοδο 2011-2014
το Τελ Αβίβ ξεπέρασε τους ενδοιασμούς Νετανιάχου για μια τέτοια συνάντηση η οποία πάντα δημιουργεί εκατέρωθεν κριτική παρά την ενεργό στήριξη, κυρίως σε οικονομικό επίπεδο, του Μπίμπι προς τον Σίσι την διετία 2014-2016

Dear People of #Israel,

It’s time to get off the trains.

Get out into the streets and start protesting this tyranny in huge numbers, like the rest of the world are.

It’s time to wake up.
These are protests against tyranny in #Turkey 🇹🇷

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains.
These are the protests against tyranny in #Netherlands 🇳🇱

#Israel, it’s time to wake up.
Get off the trains 🇮🇱

There are authors who identify themselves as Turkish and who have proclaimed themselves as Turkey experts. In this case, it concerns @UzayBulut who has explicitly indicated that she is of Turkish origin.
If we look closely at the conversation in the photo, we see/1
that Ms. Bulut is a fan of the work of S. Amperidou, an artist who paints in Greek art, mythology and history.

"I'm a fan of your work. It's so heartfelt and exquisite. It takes us to our homeland of thousands of years and reminds us of the beauty of our true ancestors"/2
It should be clear that Amperidou's ancestors are Greek, and that Bulut is a big fan of her work and that it reminds her of her original 'ancestors'.

Why does Bulut lie about her origin? Because she is definitely not Turkish.

The #Middle_East after Kabul’s fall; how reshaped?

“The #US withdrawal from #Afghanistan and the #Taliban's new leadership has brought about a multitude of surprising alliances.”…
“Without #Qatar’s mediation and involvement, the #US withdrawal would likely have been much more violent and bloody.
Years ago, Qatar was “chosen” by the #Taliban to be the liaison between them and the United States.”
#Qatar became a key state in the #US’ relat w the Islamist group,& arranged the meeting bet @CIA chief #William_Burns & #Taliban. Qatar is now running negos w Taliban over safeguarding Kabul’s airport, which will enable Taliban to start rebuild #Afghanistan & forge int’l ties.”

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

It is good that #Britain is prepared to play its role against #IS in Afghanistan. It is, however, a mystery what intelligence stream is going to be used and how planes in the Gulf could ever use such a stream in time.
Horrible to leave the dogs behind, though hardly a choice given hundreds of American and tends of thousands of Afghan humans were left.
#Pakistan overtly occupying a chunk of #Afghanistan in the south, even as it occupies the rest through the Taliban, Haqqani Network, and the other jihadists.

Five rockets fired at Kabul airport some hours ago, presumably by #ISKP.
CENTCOM said the other day it was able to deal with rocket attacks on #US forces in Kabul, and that appears true: all of the #ISKP missiles overnight were intercepted

#Taliban/#ISI reportedly disrupting the Internet access of the #Panjshir resistance, whether in preparation for a final offensive is unclear.
This is absolutely extraordinary, all the more so for being presented as a myth-busting exercise.
The likelihood of a repeat of the 26 August attack by ISKP is very high

In the early hours this morning in #Afghanistan, the U.S. carried out a drone strike against an Islamic State (#ISKP) "planner" in Nangahar province, retaliation for the 26 August massacre at the Kabul airport. It seems the strike killed the target alone.
Given the speed of the anti-#ISKP strike last night, the lack of intelligence streams after the withdrawal of troops, and the concentration of all remaining resources in-country on Kabul, looks opportunistic, rather than targeted to someone directly tied to the airport atrocity.
This is an amazing response from the State Department: legalistic fiction that it doesn't deal with the Haqqani Network, an integrated Taliban component (as it is with Al-Qaeda), because the Haqqanis are designated terrorists.

#US carried out a drone strike claiming "to have killed ISIS-Khorasan planner in eastern #Afghanistan." US also claim that this "planner was planning another attack". Unclear how US knew about this "planner" and identified him in less than 48 hours. No independent confirmation.
The #US is also claiming that this #ISIS-K was under surveillance before the attack.

Now, if he was under surveillance and known, why he was allowed to plan and carry out the attack? A failure in intelligence if, and a big IF, the information is correct?
The #Taliban offered another story saying: "A drone hit a house (not a vehicle like the #US is claiming) in Jalal Abad", without providing further information. #Afghanistan.

1. In Northern #Syria members of al-#Qaeda and #Daesh fka #ISIS are embedded with #Turkish #TSK forces conducting daily attacks on US partner forces #SDF and civilians including #Kurds, #Ezidis and #Christians. IMO Turkey force is funded by #Qatar that with #Turkey and #Pakistan
2. forms a terrorist front that advances both ISIS and Al-Qaeda. Both Turkey and Qatar use the US bases and Pakistan uses US overflight as the way to keep our eyes averted to their terrorist affiliations. We will never be free of the FTO threat if we ignore state sponsors.
3. We need to give Turkey and Qatar 48 hours to disclose all their terrorist affiliations or @StateDept should list both as State Sponsors of Terror and block assets. This will never happen because both @StateDept and @CIA are fully infiltrated by Turkish intelligence service as

They want to create a Shengal without #Yazidi

Thread ⬇️ on understanding the recent attacks against #Shengal and the connection to #Rojava!


#TurkeyAttacksYazidis #SmashTurkishFascism #TwitterKurds #UniteInResistance #Şengal #Sinjar #RiseUp4Rojava
#Yazidi history has been full of #genocides against them. The world remembers when #ISIS' genocidal campaign in #Shengal 2014 led to the massacre of more than 5000 #Ezidi and the abduction of 1000s of women + children


#TurkeyAttacksYazidis #SmashTurkishFascism #TwitterKurds
Ever since the victory over #ISIS in 2015, #Shengal has built up a Democratic Autonomous Council - similar to the councils in #Rojava - and #Yazidi people have been following the principles of Democratic Confederalism there!

After yesterday's bombing at the market, the Turkish Fascist State bombed the hospital in the village of #Sikeniye in the #Yazidi town of #Şengal!

The spirit of resistance won't break! The revolution in the Middle East will win!

Come with me for a journey through the world of hypocritical, antisemitic, 'human rights' activism:

Thread 1/9
The world can sit by as #Afghanistan is lost to the #Taliban and millions of women and young girls have their future stolen from them - and the streets of Europe are empty of protests and demonstrations. 2/9
And our streets stay silent as nations like #Syria and #Turkey massacre #Kurds 3/9
