#Libia 3 (mission impossible)

#Airports have become vital strategic assets for the many militias vying for #Libya’s vast natural resources.

#Trump would be better off listening to his own military commanders, who understand that #Haftar cannot so easily take control of all of #Libya militarily.

President #Trump’s support of a #Libyan warlord is a big mistake

1/1 #UNHCR in its recent press statement noted that Syrians at Rukban want to go home - and indeed that is true. Most Syrians want to return to their home in an ideal situation - but UNHCR has yet to qualify that statement with any statement of the risks. unhcr.org/news/briefing/…
2/9The intention survey carried out at Rukban has yet to be published, but UNHCR has already emphasized “most want to go” - this requires further evaluation. First, many Syrian IDPs fear returning to regime areas because, as resident at Rukban told me, it would be “suicide”.
3/9 Many Syrians at Rukban initially fled Russian/Syrian bombing campaigns in Aleppo, Homs, and other urban areas as early as 2015. That is nearly 4 years in protracted displacement, spurred by fear that return would mean illegal detainment, conscription, or even death.

Hezbollah in Lebanon: US hegemony is over ejmagnier.com/2018/11/21/hez…
#Uk and #Germany have held secret meetings with #Hezbollah leaders during the visits of their official delegations to Beirut.

In #Iraq, #ISIS grew under the watchful and complaisant eyes of the #US establishment that considered ISIS a strategic asset, oblivious to how this unscrupulous policy would backfire against its interests in the Middle East.

Envie de comprendre l'origine des "#Réfugiés #Palestiniens" ? C'est par ici.

Tout commence le 15 mai 1948 quand 7 #armées #arabes envahissent la #Palestine, rejoignant les arabes locaux pour attaquer #Israël. Leur but : jeter les #juifs à la mer.

⬇️Déroulez ci-dessous ⬇️
#Israël, qui n'a alors qu'un jour et ne compte que 500.000 habitants, n'est pas prêt à la #guerre : des #civils armés de #fusils, un embryon d'armée.. Beaucoup des juifs qui sont là sont d'ailleurs des rescapés de la #Shoah : on est moins d'un an après la traversée de l'#Exodus.
En face, 40 millions d'arabes prêts à en découdre, mais surtout, 7 armées entraînées, équipées de tanks, d'artillerie, d'avions de combats. Le rapport de force est de l'ordre de 1 contre 30...

Mais quand David affronte Goliath, c'est toujours David qui l'emporte.

@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi In theory, Indonesia is responsible.
(#IDG=Indo immigration dept)
However, Indonesia is the 3rd country, with #Manus & #Nauru, that Australia pays to use refugees as 'rocks to block the sea'.
Aus pays #IOM to run refugee community housing & 13 detention centres in #Indonesia.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi #UNHCR Indonesia received less & less funding, none this year, to process refugees in Indonesia for resettlement.
Australia took this 'humanitarian aid' & gave it to #IOM to detain refugees to force voluntary returns.
Now IOM had funding cut, new refugees sleeping in streets.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi So big backlog of asylum seekers awaiting UNHCR processing due to no funds.
No new admissions to #IOM or even detention in Indonesia since April 2018.
Refugees queue to get IN to detention, live in streets outside IDC's. No money, no accommodation, live on handouts.
