A me piace trarre dagli eventi spunti di riflessione. E uso Twitter per condividerli.
Prima considerazione, o meglio quesito, è quanto e per quanto tempo saremo disposti a barattare la ns. #salute con le ns. #libertà?

leurispes.it/coronavirus-mi…
Il secondo è in che misura, per lo stesso motivo, accetteremo l'intrusione delle #tecnologie nella nostra privacy?

agendadigitale.eu/sicurezza/priv…
Il terzo, che racchiude entrambi i precedenti, è: stiamo assistendo a un fenomeno temporaneo, destinato a rientrare con la fine dell'#emergenza, o ci stiamo abituando a farci erodere spazi di #democrazia?

Pensiamo alle recenti dichiarazioni di #Fico.

I'll say it: I may have been wrong about #Putin.

(An appropriately interminable #PutinForever thread)

/1
In case you've missed it, today's news is that a United Russia Duma Deputy (and first woman in space) proposed 'resetting' Putin's presidential terms, allowing him to run again. The Speaker of the Duma called Putin. Putin said ok. And that was that. meduza.io/en/feature/202…

/2
Within the space of about 20 minutes, one of the key planks of Putin's constitutional reform -- limiting the president to two terms -- evaporated.

Revealed: Russia 'hired network of Britons to go after enemies of #Putin', according to testimony given to parliament’s intelligence and security committee - the #Russia report, suppressed by Boris Johnson. My exclusive with ⁦@dansabbaghtheguardian.com/world/2020/mar…
The @guardian is publishing Bill Browder’s evidence to the ISC, delivered in 2018. We don’t know if it features in final report. It paints a depressing picture of British former intelligence officers, MPs, PR guys lobbying on behalf of #Kremlin interests in return for £££££
The eventual report contains two sections - one public, the other secret. The confidential part has already been ‘published’ or circulated inside Whitehall, among spooks and government insiders. It’s this section which is likely to discuss #Russian emigre donations to #Tory party

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.

Battles for Syria | March 3rd, 2020 | Russian Military Police enters Saraqib
Weird situation in Syria! Turkish observation posts in Syria while Turks bombarding SAA, Russia 'helping' SAA while Israel keeps bombarding Syria🤔
For the last time, Putin is not stopping Israel's plans in Syria. The goal was never regime change, it was always to destabilize Syria. Putin did not try to stop that. Why the hell would he, considering weapon sales are a major part of Russia's economy.

Short THREAD on my take on #Russia's [in]action to #Turkey's onslaught on #Syria/n army within last 48 hours
[Caveat - this is just my specualtion based on how I read RUS foreign policy, #Putin-#Erdogan relations, and I may be totally wrong]
1. Following killing of TUR servicemen, #Putin, #Erodgan had phone talk where #Turkey's president asked #Russia/n counterpart to "to stand aside in #Syria" and "do what is necessary”, i.e. let Turkey fight Syrian government forces alone"
reuters.com/article/us-syr…
2. In this piece for @AlMonitor I discuss the kind of debates in #Moscow over the crisis with #Turkey and what's at stake for #Russia in #Idlib (and, actually, beyond that). No doubt #Kremlin considers all of this when chosing options on #Syria

THREAD 1/5 At a meeting yesterday with the working group on amending the Russian #constitution, #Putin confirmed once again that he will not stay on as president once his current term ends in 2024.
2/5 He rejected a proposal to introduce the planned changes to presidential powers after the next elections, saying they should enter into force as soon as they are approved by the Russian public in a referendum. So the new limitations should be in place this spring.
3/5 So the ban on presidents serving more than two terms in total, rather than more than two in a row, will take effect now & apply to Putin too. The amendments will not be used to reset the constitutional clock & allow Putin to start all over again, as some had speculated.

5 years ago, Boris #Nemtsov has been murdered in front of the #Kremlin towers.
He joined the long line of those killed for telling the truth to a criminal power & defending #freedom.
No, #Russia is not #Putin, but those who want to make it a dignified & decent country.
Today, I am re-upping my 2016 essay on the pressing message of the Russian dissidents to the West.

Yes, the bloody second #Chechnya war has been a starting point.
At that time, quite no one paid attention (but André #Glucksmann & a few others in the West) to what it meant and inaugurated.

1/In #Idlib recently, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani spoke with @CrisisGroup about how his group, Hei'at Tahrir al-Sham #HTS, is adjusting to the changing realities on the ground in the face of a #Syrian regime offensive and an intensifying humanitarian crisis. bit.ly/39Q22Ln
2/Jolani claims that #HTS has forsworn transnational jihadist ambitions and is readying itself to focus on governing territory under its control. And he told @CrisisGroup: "We are under no illusion that we can govern Idlib on our own."
3/If #Putin and #Erdogan want to preserve the Turco-Russian relationship, they will have to find an accommodation over #Idlib. In such a scenario, Ankara and Moscow would have to find a solution to the HTS question.

Things are escalating politically and militarily between Turkey, Russia, the system and internationally.
The war drums were also sounded and dances began after the Russians rejected Turkey's request to withdraw the regime from the areas it controlled.
Will the Russians insist that the regime not withdraw,
Of course, the decision is not in the hands of Bashar, but in the hands of the Russians?
At the same time ,

Will Erdogan give up his promise to the People's Assembly, his people, and his military leadership after the end of the period he gave to the regime, ??
And who is the end of February to withdraw.?

I hope that you watch the attachments listed in this text.

If your stand was resolute in order to stop the war and compel Bashar Al-#Assad and #Putin to stop their military actions, and the destruction of cities, and the displacement of civilians, then we would not need humanitarian aid.
#IdlibUnderFire
#Idlib
But, for 9 years, your statements have been spoken without any action. I wish that the United Nations and the Security Council use force against #Assad.
The situation in #Syria would have be different from this dangerous situation.

1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

#AnneWill
2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

3. To make things more messy:
The "Prime Minister of Tripolis", Fayez #Sarraj, is supported by

#Haftar is supported by

At minimum a majority of these impeachment managers believe in the Trump/Russia Collusion Hoax and have never retracted their views. Many called for Trump’s impeachment even before the Ukraine/Whistleblower story

Nadler: “Trump’s slander of former POTUS Obama is designed 2 distract from #trumprussia Collusion”

Schiff: “I’ve seen more than circumstantial evidence of Collusion”
Jeffries: “Inconceivable you [Trump] are POTUS #Collusion #Putin...Russia is a hostile foreign power. Collusion = TREASON. Lock THEM up?”

Peak Putin. Announces major constitutional changes, shuffles govt powers, opening a Pandora’s box of options & uncertainty while staying silent on his own plans. #Putin needs to keep #Russia’s oligarchs off balance to ensure he remains the pivot around which the country revolves.
"Putin giveth & Putin taketh away." Good hot take on Medvedev resigning as PM of Russia, by Russian opposition politician Lev Shlosberg. "With the stroke of a pen, Medvedev could've sent Putin to the sidelines of history. He didn't. Because the deal was always Putin's in charge."
🎯The only way he'll leave power is in a box, just like his idol Stalin—@Kasparov63

Putin's shuffle today doesn't change that Russia is a mafia dictatorship. A facade of democracy masks his brutality & corruption. And shows he knows democracy is the only legitimate form of govt.
