1)How does a #rebellion start?Where do they get funds?One missile shot can cost as much as 1 million$!#Rebels & #superpowers sit down & bargain!Rebels wants to get in power & superpowers wants to #loot your country's #natural #resources almost for free!Then #contracts are signed!
2)Right now were are talking about #M23!Obviously they already signed contracts with superpowers to loot Congo's natural resources freely. Congo to defend itself is also obliged to sign contracts to sell its resources to get funds for war. So M23 is pushing Congo into slavery!
3)Many times #rebels can sign #contracts to invade neighboring countries in the future!When you see a war in your neighboring country, be careful,you don't know where it will end to!As you watch #African #wars on #TVs,better know rebels may have actually sold all of you!Trust me!

1/10 Today, Britain's House of Lords debated whether the British Museum should return 11 Tabots - sacred altar tablets - that were stolen from Ethiopia during Britain's military 'expedition' there in 1868. @BishopWorcester @SteveTheQuip @britishmuseum @alulapan
2/10 Basic background: Tabots are sacred to Ethiopian Orthodox Christians. The British Museum has promised it will never display or study them - they are locked in a room. Nevertheless, it has refused to return them. It says it is considering 'loaning' them to a church in the UK.
3/10 Five lords and bishops spoke in favour of returning the Tabots, citing justice and principle. It remined me of another parliamentary debate in 1871 when William Gladstone himself used similar language to decry the plunder. See the C19th debate here…

A few have caught on to the ambition and endeavour of @LootRealms. Realms is establishing a land and resource economy for the #Lootverse, casually pioneering on #Starknet #ZKRollups in parallel.

Which other projects are building out the @lootproject metaverse atm?

@divine_dao building out the lore. @ConwayAnderson, omnipresent @TimshelXYZ & others are extracting history from the OG loot contract code. If Loot does achieve its hoooj potential as a community-driven and owned fantasy entertainment universe, this effort will be exalted /2
The @GenesisLoot is best known for the Genesis Adventurers being built out of ‘mana’ distilled from Loot bags. A @dhof easter egg amplified into a stand alone character building quest by @TimshelXYZ. These legendary characters will be usable across the Lootverse. /3

ಇವತ್ತಿನ ಕಥೆ.

ನಮ್ಮ ಮನೆ ಹತ್ರ ಬರೋ ತರಕಾರಿ ಮಾರೋನು ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ.
" ಬೆಳಗ್ಗೆನೇ ಇಷ್ಟೆಲ್ಲಾ ರೆಡಿ ಆಗಿ ಎಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ಹೋರ್ಟಿದ್ಯ ಕಣಪ್ಪ" ಅಂತ ಕೇಳಿದ್ರೆ.

ಫಳ್ಳ ನೇ ಹಲ್ಲು ಬಿಟ್ಕೊಂಡು ನಕ್ಕು ಹೇಳಿದ

"ಹಾಸ್ಪಿಟಲ್ ಗಾಡಿ ಬರುತ್ತೆ - ಅಡ್ಮಿಟ್ ಆಗಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗ್ತಾ ಇದ್ದೀನಿ ಅಂತ"...

#COVID19 #Karnataka #hospital
ಅರೇ ಇದೇನು ಕಥೆ ಅನ್ಕೊಂಡು ಕೇಳಿದ್ರೆ ಗೊತ್ತಾಯ್ತು Covid-19 ಸ್ಕೀಂ ವಿಷಯ..

ಇವನಿಗೆ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಹೋಗಿ ಹಾಸ್ಪಿಟಲ್ ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಅಡ್ಮಿಟ್ ಆಗಿ ಮಲ್ಕೊಂಡ್ರೆ - ದಿನಕ್ಕೆ 500+ rupees ಹಾಗೂ ಊಟಾ ತಿಂಡಿ ಸಿಗುತ್ತೆ ಅಂತೆ.

ಸುಮ್ನೆ ಅವ್ರ register ಅಲ್ಲಿ sign ಮಾಡ್ಬೇಕು..
Covid ಪಾಸಿಟಿವ್ ಅಂತ ಹೇಳಿ govt ಹತ್ರ ಹಣ ಕೊಳ್ಳೆ ಹೊಡಿತಾರೆ..
Govt ಹತ್ರ ಇವರಿಗೆ ತೋರಿಸೋಕೆ ಡಾಕ್ಯುಮೆಂಟ್ಸ್ ಇದೆ.
Patient ಇದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಯಾರು ಬಂದು - ರಿಪೋರ್ಟ್ ಸರೀನಾ, ಇವರದ್ದೆನಾ ಅಂತ ನೋಡ್ತಾರೆ.

Govt ಇಂದ ಒಂದು patient ಗೆ ಅಂತ fake bill ಮಾಡಿಸಿ ಹಾಸ್ಪಿಟಲ್ ಹಣ ಹೊಡೆಯುತ್ತೆ..
ಡಾಕ್ಟರಿಗೆ ಇಂತಿಷ್ಟು ಕಮಿಷನ್!

ಹೆಂಗೆ ನಮ್ ಜನರು🤩🤩🤩..

A thread about drug smuggling, the British Empire, and the ways in which historical wrongdoing by the Establishment persists into the present day. 🧐🧵🌳🍃🍂⛓ #EstablishmentPsychopathy #history #ToriesOut #OpiumWar #ColonialViolence
It’s generally well known that the Opium Wars of the mid nineteenth century were launched by Britain against China in order to benefit British drug smugglers… 🤨🇬🇧🇨🇳 #OpiumWars #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China
After all, even the National Army Museum – not typically regarded as a bastion of anti-Establishment lefties – states this frankly in its displays on the Opium Wars. #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China

Still getting people coming into #24px discord asking what the #weape24 “Reveal unlockable content” is all about. Well anon do I have a mindblowing thread for you:

Some apes in the collection have this strange string of characters embedded as an unlockable content.

We counted, and it turns out exactly 2400 apes have it.

More specifically, the first 100 apes of the 24 body type traits have it. 100 x 24 = 2400 Quick maths.

Another 240 apes, specifically ALL 240 apes with the Machine body trait, have a much longer unlockable content.

Some of them are duplicates, and based on our data so far it seems like there are 24 unique strings, each duplicated 10 times to form the 240 Machine apes.

1. We all saw the #destruction caused by visible #looting in #SAUnrest & communities are reeling from the impact. But about 1000 times of what it will cost to repair last week’s damage, was “invisibly” looted through #StateCapture & #corruption. Here are some highlights
2. According to @ShadowWorldInv1 the #ArmsDeal of the 1990’s cost SA an estimated R2,2 billion looted to pay bribes and kickbacks. To date nothing has been recovered. Money that could have changed the poor’s lives wasted on #GrandScaleLooting.
3. In 2015 @CompComSA found #construction companies #GroupFive, #WBHO, #BasilRead, Murray&Roberts, #Aveng & #StefanuttiStocks guilty of #colluding when building 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums. This added R14 billion to construction costs. (Your taxmoney!)

Lets look how #FASTag is well coordinated for a single agenda - sale of public funded highways to global finance and select interests (who may/may not fund electoral bonds).

Also, a side look on how Federalism is being eaten for breakfast by @CMOTamilNadu #Loot #Alert #Thread
If you own a car / transport business, #FASTag would have been the new #Aadhaar for you with incessant messages / deadlines for mandatory #FASTag et al.

There is lot more to #FASTag than just convinience - Read…

Infrastructure financing, Surveillance etc
The 25 odd years of highway development in India, has seen many different models.

The age old one being - state (Central / State govt) building (and maintaining) highways with its own money from its budget. This is called 'Publicly Funded Highways'

More #loot from #Iran I first came across this work of the #Nurbakhshi Sufi #AbdalRahimDamavandi (d. after 1161/1748) in an edition in #AnthologiedesPhilosophesIraniens by Sayyid Jalalodin Ashtiyani (d. 2005) 1/ Image
Written in #Karbala and also reflecting a somewhat #Uvaysi approach to the master disciple relationship, the #Miftah is a classic of 18th C #Shii Sufism and is studied on pp. 158-168 of Ata Anzali’s recent book 2/ Image
I have also discussed elements of it in my article in this volume… 3/
