Heute soll es um eine Reihe von Konflikten gehen, die brisant sind, aber im Schatten der #Ukraine weitgehend unbemerkt bleiben, darunter:
- #Biden genehmigt die Entsendung von US-Truppen nach #Somalia ;
- Kämpfe in Libyen;
- #Israel fliegt Luftangriffe auf Syrien.
Thread👇
(1/21)
US-Präsident #Biden hat die (Wieder-)Entsendung von US-Spezialtruppen nach #Somalia genehmigt.
Es wird erwartet, dass rund 450 US-Soldaten in das Land geschickt werden...offiziell, um gegen die Shabab-Terrormiliz zu kämpfen, die zuletzt wieder erstarkt sein soll.
(2/21)
Die permanente US-Präsenz in #Somalia wurde eigentlich erst vor zwei Jahren von Ex-Präsident Trump beendet mit der Begründung, es sei an der Zeit, aus den "unendlichen Kriegen" auszusteigen.
#Biden will nun wieder eine kleine, aber "anhaltende Präsenz" in dem Land aufbauen

Negative events will lead to negative outcomes :

#Great #Depression -> #Keynesian Economics
#Chinese Cultural Revolution -> Gang of Four

That is how to interpret history.
Anticipating #tippingpoint is the most essential thing a gifted leader has to his credit.
All non-linear events should be studied carefully by applying #physics in social sciences, such as #Chaos #Theory and Law of #Thermodynamics.

A thread on events in Libyan history that shaped #Gaddafi’s enigmatic visit to Rome.

Gaddafi was a passionate student of history, having delved deeply into history was what formed his personality.

To understand his actions, one needs but to thoroughly read history.

2] After a lifetime of severed relations & diplomatic unease, Italy agrees to formally #acknowledge & #apologise to the Libyan people for a brutal occupation that inflicted decades of massacre, everlasting heart-ache and bereavement.
3] Italy signs to compensate #Libya for the damages and misdeeds a sum of $5billion —to be paid as a yearly $200million over the next 25 years — to be put into construction projects, student grants & pensions for Libyan soldiers forced to fight in Italy’s ranks during WW2.

1. Wang Jingwei. #Politisi asal #China ini, adalah teman satu #partai dengan Chiang Kai Shek. Mereka berdua pada awalnya kompak, menggaungkan #ideologi #nasionalisme China. Lebih lagi, pada saat itu #Jepang sedang agresif di kawasan.

Namun secara mengejutkan dikarenakan ketidak-setujuan dengan #KaiShek, #Jingwei memilih membelot untuk membangun #pemerintah boneka yang pro-#Jepang di #Nanking.

Africa 🌍 Enjoys Unlimited Telecommunication 📡 Services Thanks To #Gaddafi 🛰️

It was Muammar Gaddafi who was at the forefront of making sure Africa 🌍 was connected together. Africa 🌍 refused to pay $500 million annually to Europe for use of its satellites 🛰️. ImageImage
At one point, it was unimaginably expensive to make a telephone call 📞 in Africa 🌍. Worse still, to make a call to another caller who is outside Africa 🌍. With a radical change, the gateway is open to contact anyone in any part of the world at the fastest time possible. ImageImage
Just a click of a button. Endless hours of streaming on the internet.

Little is told about how this came to be in Africa. Little is told about how the efforts of one man, the late Col. Gaddafi, led to drastic transformation in the accessibility of telecommunications in Africa. ImageImage

Today, February 17, marks the 9th anniversary of the revolution in #Libya 🇱🇾 which resulted in the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime.

Yet with an ongoing war around #Tripoli there is little to celebrate. The initial dreams of the #Feb17 revolution feel as far away as ever. Image
Remarkable photo from #Sirte tonight. Pro-#Gaddafi and pro-#Feb17 residents seem to commemorate the start of the Libyan revolution together.

Reconciliation in #Libya 🇱🇾 seems far away, but it is not unthinkable Image
#Libya 🇱🇾: in the capital of #Tripoli optimism prevails as thousands pf. Libyans gather on Martyr's Square to celebrate the #Feb17 Revolution Image

A lot of the questions that came up during @LibyaDesk consultations in #Tunis had to do with the return of former #Gaddafi officials and supporters to the scene.
It came as no surprise that a lot of the available information was false.
This thread will attempt to clarify things.
Since 2011, tribes and figures that supported the former strongman were sidelined and persecuted, forcing many to flee #Libya.
The first return of ‘green’ Libyans (Gaddafi supporters) was in 2014 #Benghazi when #Haftar called on them to assist in the war against #terrorism.
This created a safe zone in east of #Libya which resulted in many families in exile that could no longer afford living in #Egypt or #Tunisia to move to towns in the east.
Politically, the first return of former #Gaddafi officials to political life was due to #Sarraj..

Lack of Humanity?
You ass wipe @JohnBrennan are responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 in #Syria alone, God knows how many across the #MiddleEast 5-600K more.
Did ya forget about the #WikiLeaks dump proving it?
Is that why you want #Assange.
You're an International #Terrorist
#Brennan was a key player in the implementation of the worst #WarCrime of modern times, #Obama's PSD-11 Agenda.
#Flynn tried to expose PSD-11 which would have hung the #Intelligence community & the Obama Administration.
They went after Flynn with a vengeance to silence him.

I have stood under a podium on which Gaddafi conducted a news conference where I asked him the first question, at an event just outside of Tripoli in 1996. Tell me, did you meet or report on Gaddafi?
In 1996, I was a Reuters correspondent in #Cairo. I went to #Libya to cover the 27th anniversary of the “Green Revolution.”I don’t have access to the Reuters articles I wrote from #Libya but here are some opeds I’ve written about Gaddafi the dictator and the hypocrisy of the West
#Gaddafi’s quirks should never have distracted from his abysmal human rights record. Arbitrary arrests, a muzzled press, a ban on political parties and the squandering of #Libya's oil wealth have never been laughing matters for Libyans. washingtonpost.com/archive/opinio…

Thread Upsum:
There’s a growing resentment of #Hezbolla, in #Damascus, among #Syria security officials they are noting its increasing intervention in their day-to-day affairs, some of which are as petty as releasing Hezbollah suspects involved in criminal activities. Image
The logic is that they didn’t fight for 8 years "to protect the authority of the state" only to let a non-state actor undermine that same authority.
For example, last month, a sting operation netted a cross-borders antiquities smuggling ring.
Among them were two Hezbollah members, M. Kourani and T. Mortada. They were found in possession of Syrian Security ID cards but with different names. As per procedure, their case was treated as criminal and legal proceedings began.

I was very happy with this news Saif Islam #Gaddafi It is time for the people of #Libya to achieve peace & justice. The illegal invasion by US-led coaliation/Nato in 2011, has only managed to destroy Libya since they killed the great leader Muammar Gaddafi

1) #NicolasSarkozy was #France’s president 2007-2012, was arrested & is being questioned about his illegally financed campaign by #Gaddafi in #Libya, some backstory.

How did Sarkozy go from accepting #illegal cash to advocating overthrow?

#QAnon #Corruption @POTUS #FRA #LeMonde
2) A total of $50m was funneled. And it wasn't done via wire transfer. Franco-Lebanese businessman Ziad Takkiedine claims he carried suitcases full of cash in 2006 and 2007.

$50m is double the legal campaign limit in France.

👁‍🗨(1) “When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions” -Shakespeare
You’ve heard the name a lot lately it’s “MI6” and one of its former spies compiled the #TrumpDossier but perhaps we’ve forgotten our history with them? Hint: WMD’s
(2) In 2003 an American whistleblower from the U.N named Scott Ritter came forward and claimed that MI6 had a campaign to exaggerate the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. it was called #OperationMassAppeal and it’s intent was to “shake up public opinion”
(3) #OperationMassAppeal depended on using non-actionable intelligence and spoon feeding it to the media. It was a disinformation campaign run by MI6 against Iraq. In 1998 it was leaked to press in Washington and then suddenly vanished.
