Prisoners "...are not paid overtime, cannot organize or go on strike, have no vacations or sick days, never show up late to work, cannot complain, and if they try to protest they can be beaten or tortured in solitary confinement."

"...many firefighters today are not the burly full time professionals of another era, but underpaid convict laborers risking their lives for pennies. Almost 40 percent of California’s firefighters are prisoners."

Looks like it's again time for my regular threat "what US military installations are located in Germany?", and "Why is the US in Germany?".
#Truppenabzug
[Thread]
[1]
US President Trump has said again that he wants to reduce the number of US troops stationed in Germany. He frames it as a punishment of Germany which does not spend 2% of its GDP on its own defence.
[2]
The thing is, though, that the US troops in Germany aren't primarily there to guarantee German security, or to deter Russia. They are there because Germany has become a staging ground for US operations worldwide, particularly in the Middle East and Africa.

1/The GNA has managed to break through defences and capture the Al-Watiya airbase...a major victory for them & probably means the LNA will no longer be able to seriously threaten Tripoli

2/ few more pics from Al-Watiya airbase

The GNA has reportedly captured a Pantsir AD system as well...although the below pic is pretty blurry...will update as more info becomes available

I spent the weekend writing a primer about #drones for #Drohnendebatte2020. It's not published yet (coming soon), but in the meantime a few thoughts on the German armed drones debate which I have been following and researching for a decade. (thread)
A bit of historical context: The German armed drone debate is as old as I am. In the late 1980s, the Bundeswehr first looked into armed #drones. Two systems - the KDH 'Kampfdrohne Heer' and the DAR 'Drohne Anti-Radar' were developed. Both were more loitering munition than drone..
... and both were eventually abandoned. Their requirements too technologically advanced for their time (autonomy, swarming etc), and their funding ended as the Cold War came to an end.

This natural wonder in #Syria, al-Hota gorge near Raqqa, became a gruesome site during the war. Our investigation out today on how ISIS and others disposed of their victims here. A chain of events and what’s needed now. 1/10
hrw.org/news/2020/05/0…
2/10 Some anti-government groups apparently dumped bodies of Syrian soldiers and pro-government militia fighters into al-Hota before ISIS controlled the area. hrw.org/news/2020/05/0…
3/10 When ISIS held the area 2013-15, it threatened people that they’d end up there. A video posted to FB showed them tossing victims into the gorge. Witnesses said they saw bodies on the edge. Graphic: ISIS tossing a person into al-Hota gorge

1/ I’ll never forget the time a #drone team asked for my help testing their hypothesis that dropping opioids on people’s lawns in rural Mass. would be an effective way to solve a (non-existent) problem. Could you just give us a community to test this idea in?, they asked. I said-
2/ They would do better to create relationships with community, listen to their needs, & let the community decide what the problems were & how to solve them.

Then I asked-
3/ “Do you know how many households up there still lack high speed Internet access?”

Them: No.

Out of curiosity, I asked, “Would your drones be able to solve that problem, so folx could actually access the information & services they need in the 1st place?

Them: Yes, BUT-

A #drone has been spotted doing so-called Scan Flights over the English/French canal. Under the sea bed there is the #chunnel, a long train tunnel connecting #UK and #France. This is not a consumer drone! #TheStormIsHere #QAnon #WWG1WGA
More scan flights over the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia. #TheStormIsHere #QAnon #WWG1WGA

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

1. c'è una notizia di cui voglio parlarvi. Oggi @cadagp racconta su #Repubblica carta del misterioso aereo USA caduto/abbattuto in #Afghanistan su cui ci sarebbe stato #MichaelD'Andrea. Ricordate chi è?
@cadagp 2. 4 anni fa, rivelai che autorità USA avevano fatto un pagamento di 1 milione 185mila euro alla famiglia di #GiovanniLoPorto,un povero cooperante italiano ammazzato in #Pakistan da un #drone USA insieme con cooperante Usa, Warren Weinstein [ARCHIVIO]: inchieste.repubblica.it/it/repubblica/…
@cadagp 3. ebbene, fu in quell'occasione che 4 anni fa vi raccontai chi era #MichaelD'Andrea: era "il becchino", come scrissi qui: inchieste.repubblica.it/it/repubblica/… Era l'ex capo del Centro Antiterrorismo della #CIA,l'architetto delle #torture e abusi della #WaronTerror

Just received this #drone from @DJIEnterprise to get familiar with prior to an adventure in a week or so. There is so much in this little package. Searchlight (very bright BTW), speaker to communicate, zoomable 4K camera, and a long battery life. Built for #LawEnforcement use.
This #drone requires #pilots or operators to be registered with the @UK_CAA if used in the UK. If you use a #UAV over 250g then you are required to do this by law. This requires a short bit of learning of the fundementals and then your are off!! Click here register-drones.caa.co.uk
If you use your #drone for a commercial purpose, or u get any valuable consideration for your use of it; OR you fly your drone within 150m of a congested (urban) area. Then you will require a CAA permission for commercial operations. Click here to explore bit.ly/2TsTIMI

The German Army (Amt für Heeresentwicklung, to be exact) has surprised many and published a position paper on #AI for land-based forces. Will translate bits and comment.
Alright, let's do this!
The paper is available here 👇
It was published only some ten days ago, but was finished in August/September.
#AI #KI #Bundeswehr (1/)
augengeradeaus.net/wp-content/upl…
The first thing to note is that with regard to process, this paper is a bit weird: Germany has a national #AI strategy (which mentions military AI in *one sentence*) but no military #AI strategy for the whole of the Bundeswehr. However, now there is this paper for the Army.

The #Abqaiq oil processing facility has been targeted multiple times in the past, from Al Qaida in 2006 to foiled plot in May 2019 and now with #drones. Strikes against oil infrastructure can have massive economic and #environmental consequences.
#PT at the #Abqaiq processing facility, 6.8 million barrels of crude oil are processed on a daily basis. Saudis claim the fire is now under control. The base is at least 1000km away from Houthi controlled area, so their likely #drone of choice is the UAV-X
