Top international adviser to #Iran's SP Ali Akbar Velayati speaking @ValdaiClub now:says term #MiddleEast is British concept, he'd rather use West Asia/North Africa,argues due to #US influence some countries seek to play greater regional role (than they can)
Velayati:*throughout history external powers sought to dominate Mideast, #US no exception here, #Libya, #Somalia brought manifestations of western FP,#Trump seeks to undermine region,he wants to partition #Syria as they did w/ 🇱🇾 & #Iraq - bith once big, important states
Velayati: New element is after Islamic Revolution #Iran able to conduct policies independent of Western states, this is real reason why #US seeks to counter IRN.But if ot were not for #Russia & IRN, Leader of Nusra would be ruling today in #Damascus, head of #ISIS-in #Baghdad.

Another piece by the @Guardian’s #1 embarrassment, @LukeHarding1968, & #Yukos kleptocrat Mikhail #Khordokovsky’s organization, the “#Dossier Center.” It’s time to ask harder questions about Khodorkovsky, who is connected to #Steele, @APCOWorldwide, @JonathanMaWiner, et al.
… does #Khodorkovsky (or his patron, Lord #Rothschild) have some kind of stake in the @Guardian? Did they bankroll @LukeHarding1968’s fictitious smear novel, “Collusion?” How did Khodorkovsky’s “#Dossier Center” organization obtain lawyer @NVeselnitskaya’s emails?
… why‘s #Khodorkovsky (apparently w/ #Browder, #MI6, et al.) running a smear campaign against @POTUS @realDonaldTrump? Which other “collision” stories has Mikhail planted in US/UK media? Will Khodorkovsky deny planting this story, about Rinat #Akhmetshin? rferl.org/a/rinat-akmets…

<Brief Thread> on some CIA reports as the #PKK insurgency was beginning in #Turkey.
HT @Ayei_Eloheichem, who found these materials. He covers Russia, Israel, terrorism, espionage, and more. Give him a #FF.
In August 1985, the CIA believed that the #PKK insurgency in #Turkey that had begun exactly a year before was all-but finished because of the internal divisions in the Kurdish population and the gangsterism of the PKK, plus no support from Iraqi Kurds. bit.ly/2uk88k3

#US #Iraq war veteran Vince Emanuele: "Moral injury is the real reason why #US veterans are committing suicide, as they realize all the horrors of war & innocent people killed were for nothing but #US corporate interests"

rt.com/usa/431777-us-…
#US veterans marched in #NewOrleans on July 1, to raise awareness for the high rates of veteran suicides across #America. They were wearing ‘dead masks’ to represent the high cost of war.
US Department of Veterans Affairs report: Average number of veterans suicide is 20 per day
US #Iraq war veteran Emanuele: In fact-the #US government, especially under @realDonaldTrump is exacerbating the problem by continuing militaristic operations all over the world-If US government was interested in preventing veteran suicides-it would stop creating so many veterans

Thread: #Saudi oil policy is now fully coordinated w White House to balance global market as US announced it will press allies (inc. India & China) to cut oil imports from #Iran to zero by Nov 4. Saudi's increased production also allows US sanctions on #Venezuela to proceed =>
2-When Saudi production increase announcement was made, oil prices initially dropped on the news. This drop was reversed when the import freeze from #Iran was made. Saudi now will make it easier for Washington to slam both Iran & Venezuela without fear of sharp rise in oil prices
3-Reason market decided to rise after both announcements from Saudi and the US on Iran is to do with the developments in #Libya this morning as militia leader handed over control of multiple crude-exporting terminals to a rival of the internationally recognized National Oil Corp

The Case for a ‘Strategic Backstop' mechanism for Libya

#LibyaStrategicBackstop
#Libya needs a strategic relationship with one member of the #UNSC to act as an International ‘Backstop’.

The purpose of the Strategic Backstop mechanism is to ensure effective 'Triangulation' of the #Libyan transition and ‘stop’ #Libya from falling ‘back’ into conflict
Without a strategic backstop mechanism, the unity and stability of the #UN Security Council itself is at stake.

In this thread I will lay out what why both #Libya and the International Community, need this backstop, and how it could function.

Twitter Thread - #NewStartforLibya

Ladies and gentlemen, the political and economic situation in #Libya today makes life hard for everyone, for #Libyans, our neighbours and the rest of the world. But we may still have hope that this can change.
I tweet today, not as a representative of any institution, faction or interest group but as someone who only wants the best for Libya; and #Libya surely deserves much better than she has had for the last fifty or so years.
I want to give you a summary of ideas that I have been developing for some time with a group of friends, professionals and academics which has become something of an informal think-tank.

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

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.

THREAD

There is a growing trend to implement development projects oriented towards women economic empowerment (WEE) in #Libya. This is great because it paves the way for changing the cultural paradigm of Libyan society and promotes inclusion of #women in other areas. 1/10
But there are also opportunities/risks that should be observed/mitigated when implementing such projects, given the #Libya-n environment. I’ll try and compile a few here that I hope will be observed by both donors and implementing orgs. 2/10
First, you need to make sure the idea for the project originates from the woman and that she takes full ownership of it. Just suggesting things for her to do is NOT economic empowerment and will have 0 impact, it is advising and will eventually result in failure. 3/10

Being overly defensive about an issue automatically makes you biased in your analysis. Denying that #racism is a problem in #Libya is wrong. It is a problem in most if not all societies.
Nevertheless, claiming #slavery is a direct symptom of racism is worse.
Slavery, although motivated by racism, was abolished through legal reform. Racism was not abolished and most probably won't be.
It is 'logical' that in the absence of rule of law & the presence of policies that negatively disrupt migratory flows, slavery COULD reemerge. #Libya
The solution to #migration and #slavery therefore involves tackling different dimensions:
- Short-term: policy changes acknowledging #EU's interception at sea is illegal
- Medium-term: improving #Libya's economic & security capacity as transit state
- Long-term: tackling racism
