3 June: 🇨🇳#China has a fleet of at least 15 🐟fishing ships working both sides of 🇧🇳#Brunei’s & 🇲🇾#Malaysia’s exclusive economic zones, while all 3 countries’ defense officials are gathered at the @IISS_org #ShangriLa talks in #Singapore. [🧵1/3]

#OSINT #SouthChinaSea Image
2/In addition, two probable 🇨🇳#China maritime militia ships—Qiong Lin Yu 11016 & 11587—are at the SE edge of the fishing fleet, providing security on 🇲🇾#Malaysia’s side of the boundary, together with a 75m cargo ship, Qiong Lin 11011 (possible 🐟fish carrier?). [🧵2/3] Image
3/Per @AsiaMTI & @C4ADS’ 2021 report “Pulling Back the Curtain on 🇨🇳#China’s Maritime Militia”, Qiong Lin Yu 11587 is identified with “high confidence” as militia. QLY 11016’s activity here seems to implicate it as well. [🧵3/3]

Feel like Hospital RIPAS needs an infopack for those not familiar with it

Would cover info & how-tos for:
1. Parking
2. Registration
3. Appointment
4. Medication/Pharmacy
5. Wards (Patients)
6. Wards (Visitors)

And then prob info for specific clinics/departments
People who don't go to RIPAS often don't seem to realise just how much time it takes? Every step takes time.

The appointment times may not mean anything (depending on the clinic/dept you're visiting). They operate more like rough slots for queue management
Not here to criticise how they run things - of course it could be improved, overhauled, etc etc.

But mainly I just see non-regular visitors being confused and the staff telling them, over and over - please register first, no your appointment time is not exact.

#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits


1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.

THREAD: Some "secrets" and rare photos from various Arab warships😀:
1. The special remote-controlled searchlights of a #UAE Baynunah-class corvette. Their dual head combines white HMI and UV. Image
2. One of the two quadruple Mk56 VLS for ESSM SAM of a #UAE Baynunah-class corvette. The missile launchers are not installed. The "launching cells" that receive the canisters are hidden below the steel floor gratings. We can only see the exhaust system's tubes. Image
3. The VDS of #UAE Abu Dhabi corvette, one of the most capable ASW warships in the Arab world. Image

Perlu diingat bahwa Indonesia itu Religious-Nation State. Apa artinya? Konsep negara kebangsaan yang banyak diilhami nilai-nilai agama, tetapi TIDAK memberlakukan hukum agama tertentu. Menjamin WN menjalankan ajaran agama masing-masing, TANPA mewajibkannya. Lanjut👇 #PermenPPKS
Dengan Pancasila konsep #Indonesia ini menjadi unik. Kita tidak menjadi negara agama yang memberlakukan hukum agama seperti #Brunei, #Saudi, dan lainnya. Tetapi bukan juga negara sekuler yang tidak memfasilitasi kepentingan beragama WN-nya, seperti banyak negara #Eropa.
Konsekuensi #Pancasila sebagai dasar negara, maka ini menjadi sumber utama dari Hukum Publik yang berlaku. Hukum Publik singkatnya hukum yang mengatur hubungan negara (penguasa) dengan rakyatnya. Contohnya UU Tindak Pidana Korupsi.

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!

An Autocratic Ruler needs to control the following to maintain a tight grip over both power and people->
1. Education
2. Religious Interpretation
3. Taxation
4. Currency
5. Military
6. Monopoly Permits
7. Land
8. Unions
9. Publishing and Broadcasting
10. Property Rights
Of course, this is an expandable list!
Many are arguing that I should add more to it.
I just added a few domineering aspects, tools and policy interacting methods of governance, which a ruler might bring into use!
You may add more to the above suggestions.
In modern times, no leader, in the so-called developing world, outside the Fascist Southern European Region, the NAM Nations, LATAM Markets, and the OIC Bloc, had exercised so much control, across all walks of life, other than Late Lee Kuan Yew of #Singapore

Global Militarisation Index 2020 #GMI \ Worldwide trends in militarisation and what they may mean for trends in health security. Image
#GMI 2020 focuses on the link between militarisation and health security. “It cannot be excluded that the high level of resources invested in the military in countries with a particularly high level of militarisation is at the expense of health provision”, the authors explain. Image
#Israel, #Armenia, #Oman, #Bahrain, #Singapore, #SaudiArabia, #Brunei, #Russia, #Kuwait and #Jordan are the Top 10 in militarisation. All countries in the Middle East are highly militarised by global comparison—six countries are from this region. Image

"The United States champions a free & open Indo-Pacific. ..."…

(Maps from @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks)
"Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the #SouthChinaSea. We are making clear: #Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them."
"In the #SouthChinaSea, we seek to preserve peace and stability, uphold #freedom of the #seas in a manner consistent with international #law, maintain the unimpeded flow of #commerce, and oppose any attempt to use coercion or force to settle disputes."

It’s been great seeing a lot of tweets discussing racism in #Brunei & I’ve been thinking a lot about my experience with racism — whether I’ve been on the receiving end or I’ve been racist myself/used race to demean others in the past.
Racism in Brunei does not surprise me & it shouldn’t surprise anyone. Just look at our national philosophy that has not been changed for the past 36 years to be more inclusive despite the multitude of races & religions that now identify as “Bruneian”.
Any brown Bruneian will tell you they’ve been called “kaling” at least once in their lifetime & I am no exception. You’ll tell me “That’s horrible” & you’re sorry it happened but when was the last time you corrected someone who said kedai kaling instead of kedai runcit?

IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO

How come a post like this still exist in our society today #Brunei? Titled "Dream Wedding", the message that comes with it isn't something anyone should be making fun of, not just in defense of women but also what message it brings of Muslim men today. It is embarrassing to see.
And it's worse when they use Firman as their defense. This is not what the Firman means and a complete misuse of the teachings of Islam. This group Kern Hani obviously needs to be taught of not just how society works today but also understanding what it means to be a Muslim.
Really #Brunei? Really?

I’m far from a #Brunei expert/reporter (ping @ainbandial @tashny) but I’m seeing international media report the sultan’s announcement about the moratorium of the #deathpenalty as a “dramatic U-turn” and… that doesn’t seem quite right.
@ainbandial @tashny The truth is that #Brunei has been listed as "de facto abolitionist” when it comes to the #deathpenalty, which means that, while capital punishment is still in law, it hasn’t actually been practised (i.e. no executions) for at least 10 years.
@ainbandial @tashny While I find it interesting the sultan felt the need to come out and reiterate the moratorium—and do think that international pressure had something to do with it—calling it a “u-turn” obscures the fact that not carrying out executions isn’t a new thing, but long established.

La situation de #Brunei ne fait que mettre l’Occident face à ses contradictions concernant l’Islam. La charia qu’applique #Brunei n’est pas le propre d’une «frange extrémiste», c’est la Loi islamique reconnue à l’unanimité des musulmans dans les quatre écoles juridiques et autre.
Cette Charia fait l’objet de l’unanimité chez les musulmans, elle est inhérente au dogme islamique, soutenue par le Coran comme par les hadith. Les châtiments corporels, la condamnation de la déviance morale etc, c’est le fondement même du droit que chaque musulman doit accepter
Le plus surprenant, c’est que c’est le fondement des écoles sunnites qu’on essaie de faire passer comme « modérées », à l’instar du Malikisme (qui d’ailleurs est censé être la base du code pénal de nombre de pays musulmans aujourd’hui comme le Maroc, mais c’est un autre sujet)
