1/4. Oligarchs are being squeezed in Russia - the splits have started, with public statements from them contradicting #Putin directly.

Somalis are appalled @ATMIS_Somalia allowed #Ethiopian army in #Baidoa to abuse the proud military #history of our @SNAForce by adoring and glorifying #SovietUnion alliance’s acts of aggression against #Somalia in #Karamardha as part of 1977-78 #WesternSomalia #Liberation War-1/4
These abhorrent antics are not only an affront to Somalia’s sovereignty, dignity and sensibility but are also against the Status of Mission Agreement #SOMA signed by @amisomsomalia. Article VI addresses conduct of #AMISOM and #ATMIS personnel who are required to always adhere to……
#Somalia must demand answers from @ATMIS_Somalia and @_AfricanUnion for #Ethiopia’s appalling violations of #SOMA. @MOFASomalia must also summon Ethiopia’s Ambassador and demand an apology from @mfaethiopia for the abuse of Somalia’s military #history and national sensibility-3/4

Somalis are affronted by the abhorrent agenda of #Amhara agitators who are attempting to rewrite our ancestors’ #history. As an ardent #PanSomalist whose adamantly against any agenda of #Abyssinians I’d like to address revisionism of our history by Amharas with amble evidence-1/9
From 1529 to 1543 #Somali ruler from #Adal empire named Ahmed #Gurey aka Ahmed #Gran annihilated #Amhara army after many assaults. Ahmed also roamed freely across #Abyssinia for almost two decades and pillaged at will. Ashamedly #Amhara emperor Lebna Dengel run away as coward-2/9
As anticipated emperor #Dengel asked military aid from his #Portuguese ally as he wasn’t able to face Somalis alone. This will become a familiar theme for #Amharas who are actually accustomed to begging military aid from foreign allies against Somalis for almost six centuries-3/9

#WW3 has already started, says Frog historian

World War III has already begun, according to Emmanuel Todd, who argues that the proxy war taking place in Ukraine is existential for both the United States and Russia. Image
Tood, spoke to Le Figaro, one of the most influential newspapers in the country, saying: “Biden must hurry now. America is fragile, and the resistance of the Russian economy is pushing the U.S. imperial system toward the abyss.”
“It is evident that the conflict, initially a limited territorial war, has evolved into a global economic confrontation between the whole West on one side, and #Russia, backed by #China, on the other. It has become a world war,” Todd said.

Stalin's Plan of Forced Collectivization and the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933 | 🧵Considered by many historians to be Stalin's most horrifying campaign, "forced collectivization" was the well-organized plan to crush the Ukrainian peasants by massive starvation... #Ukraine confiscating all available food throughout the regions of Ukraine, the northern Caucasus, and the lower Volga river area in 1932 to 1933. The effect of this "artificial" man-made famine was the complete breaking of the peasants' will to resist collectivization of farmland..
leaving the population politically, socially, and psychologically traumatized. Stalin's plan and the methods by which it was carried out are almost too horrifying to imagine: the execution or deportation of any man, woman, or child...

THREAD: If we analyze declassified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, we can learn quite a bit about the US role in the historical development of Ukrainian Nationalism.

The current #Ukraine/#Russia warstarted here — a long, long time ago.
In a declassified CIA document outlining the details of Operation Belladonna, we can see the US had already made contact with #NazisInUkraine who were keen to ally with the US against the #USSR, primarily through development of the Ukrainian Supreme Liberation Council (UHVR). Image
Later on in the document, we can see the known affiliations of the UHVR that the CIA was aware of, specifically the #Bandera & #Melnyk factions of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), in addition to the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA).

Probably not because it was classified for nearly 60 years.

In April 1945 Churchill decided -- BEFORE #WWII was over -- that the Allies should team up with the #Nazis invade the #SovietUnion AGAIN and NUKE #Russia!…
It sounds too crazy to be true, but it is.

British PM Winston Churchill instructed his Joint Military Staff to draft an invasion plan of Russia using British, German, and American troops. (He hadn't told the Americans about this yet, or most of his own military staff.)
Imagine how this strategic meeting went:

“Yes, splendid. We shall invade the country who just saved our arses from the Nazis! Let’s convince the Americans to drop that new nuclear bomb on the Russians! I mean, they have to try it out somewhere, let’s nuke a few Soviet cities!”

There’s a lot about #Watergate you probably don’t know — because it was kept from you.

As journalist ⁦@jeffersonmorley⁩ spells out in his latest book, Nixon’s plan to threaten CIA Director Helms over the #JFK Assassination blew back in his face.…
In the context of his long-standing demand for the CIA’s records, the invocation of “the ‘Who shot John?’ angle” on the Nixon tape can only refer to one thing: Kennedy’s assassination.
The ambush in Dallas was the first thing on Nixon’s mind as he pressed the CIA director for the agency’s Bay of Pigs files.

The president intuited a connection between the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961 and JFK’s assassination two years later.

Agha Hasan Abedi — legendary banker & founding President of #BCCI (Bank of Credit & Commerce International) — the world’s 7th largest privately owned bank.

A bank run by Pakistanis 🇵🇰 & financed by the Ruling Family of Abu Dhabi 🇦🇪 & prominent family offices of Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦.
Founded in 1972, during a meeting of senior bankers in Beirut, #Lebanon 🇱🇧, #BCCI went on to open up branches & launch full-fledged commercial banking operations in 73 countries around the world by 1989. This included opening the first branch of a foreign-owned bank in #China 🇨🇳.
In the mid-1980’s, Agha Hasan Abedi (or Agha Sahib as he was called fondly by colleagues), negotiated the acquisition of a very unique banking operation in the #UnitedStates 🇺🇸. The bank acquired had licenses to operate in 15-16 states in the US. An unprecedented transaction.

Honored to be cited by @iandenisjohnson @NewYorker:…

"Andrew Erickson, a professor @NavalWarCollege & a visiting professor at @Harvard, said he’s seen no evidence that #China..."

For further background, see:…
...wants to reciprocate, citing #China’s refusal to discuss meaningful arms control. “I don’t see a basis for deep coöperation” with #Xi’s China, Erickson said. “I’m sad to say that.”…

KEY: In what areas is the #PRC under Xi willing to accommodate the US?
•To make the first move in doing so?
•Can anyone name one specific example?

Moreover, in the #PRC under #Xi, is there anything like an equivalent to this high-profile conference @Harvard, w a concluding panel on the subject of “Toward Coexistence 2.0: What Should #CHINA Do?”

Some context re. reported speed of #NorthKorean #missile:

All #ballistic #missiles are #hypersonic (faster than Mach 5) at some point in their flight. N.Germany’s V-2, deployed Sept. 1944, was hypersonic during its boost phase. Intercontinental ballistic missiles (#ICBMs)… 1/n
…, first deployed by the US in 1959, are high-hypersonic (Mach 25) throughout their entire flight. Subsequent decades have witnessed the emergence of “#hypersonic#missile systems that can maneuver instead of following a fixed parabolic trajectory, including #ASBMs, #HGVs 2/n
…and air-breathing supersonic combustion ramjets (#scramjets). The US investigated maneuvering re-entry vehicles in the late 1970s, the #SovietUnion #HGVs in the mid-1980s; both failed. In 1981, the US fielded the #PershingII medium-range #ballistic #missile (#MRBM), whose… 3/n

The speeches about the capital that millionaires contribute in taxes and how much the poor and the middle class receive from this forced generosity, are a whole literary genre … 🙄 the millionaire factory of #myths 🙄
What's more, this genre is cultivated above all by those from below, as the principle of the genius of propaganda Edward Bernays says: “you should never say that what you want to sell is good, but make others say it”.
That the poor and the workers (oh! excuse the redundancy) defend the rich as kind donors, is the direct result of such a publicity strategy and, as Bernays himself knew, it is not just a massive inoculation but an exploitation of the weaknesses of the consumer, as is the desire

Where is #BlackLivesMatter while #Russia uses native people for its colonial war by contract enforcement? Why don't you protest in front of the #russian embassy against systemic #racism? Like many people around the world supported Afro-Americans. Solidarity!

Russian disinformation: situation report

Russia is adapting its #propaganda activities to the course of war it’s been waging against #Ukraine. As a country actively engaged in helping Ukraine, Poland is one of the prime targets of Russian information warfare efforts.
The following are some of the identified anti-Polish narratives, including those in use for quite a while and completely new ones.

- Poles are most numerous among the mercenaries fighting alongside Ukraine (a narrative now heavily exploited)
- #PL fighters are supporting Russia (an emerging narrative)
- #PL wants to seize UA (old narrative) + granting #UA an #EU candidate status serves this goal (new issue)
- Poland is dragging #NATO into war against Russia
- Poland is steeped in anti-Russian sentiment

Here is a terrible, truly terrible, piece on #Georgia in @jacobin magazine. I won’t link to it, it's not worth your time, other than to show just how truly deluded many socialists in the US are, in making excuses for the #SovietUnion & #Russia. 1/n
That part really deserves attention and key takeaway: don’t trust a *single* paragraph of what you read in #Jacobinmag, if you do not know the issue yourself. (hello @DemSocialists) CC @ichbinilya @GilbreathDustin 2/
"Since the end of the Soviet Union, Western-oriented development has not only failed to address Georgia’s problems but reinforced them." With all these falsehoods, one doesn't even know where to begin. 3/n

⚡What #Ukraine needs asap to win the war: Air-Defense Systems.

You might have seen that the US is already helping a lot. This is true. #Ukrainians are thankful a lot. But it’s not enough for 🇺🇦 to protect the whole world from a massive threat to humanity.
🇷🇺air force is enormous, over 10 times as large as @KpsZSU. Without sufficient anti-aircraft systems, 🇷🇺will have free reign to destroy everything – artillery, command posts, tanks and entire 🇺🇦 cities.
That is precisely why at the beginning of the invasion 🇷🇺 was trying hard to achieve air dominance. If they succeed, it will just be a matter of time until 🇷🇺wins the war.

#Russland/s Krieg in der #Ukraine ist auch ein Kampf um Erinnerung. Wer hat das Recht auf das Erbe der #Sowjetunion und wie geht man mit der komplexen Geschichte der untergegangenen Weltmacht um? Am #TagderBefreiung spitzt sich dieser Konflikt der Symbole zu - ein Thread 🧵/1
Staatenbund, Bundesstaat oder (groß-)russisches Imperium? Die #Sowjetunion war alles davon. In der westl. Wahrnehmung verschwimmt diese Differenzierung. Im Englischen wird #Russia/#SovietUnion meist synonym verwendet, auch in Deutschland findet oft keine Unterscheidung statt /2
Die #Sowjetunion ging 1922 aus Sowjetrussland hervor als #Lenin seine Hoffnungen auf die Weltrevolution aufgeben musste. Er war nicht nur Ideologe sondern auch Pragmatiker der Macht: Nur knapp 50% der Bevölkerung waren Russen, andere Nationalitäten erhielten zunächst Freiräume/3

An amazing analysis of the current #Ukraine️ #war
@kamilkazani takes us back to Cold War and evolution of Russian war machine based on those weapons/tactics.
Question: Will this op prove to be as much a watershed for #Russianarmy as it was for #UkrainianArmedForces in 2014?
In addition, the entire situation raises further questions
1-As mentioned in the tweet above, would this stimulate transformation of military affairs in the #RussianArmy in particular and #RussianArmedForces forces in general?
Especially considering the points @kamilkazani made?
2-Actually, and retrospectively, this raises more questions. And these questions are based on President #Putin own past career in particular and the post #SovietUnion combat experience of the #RussianArmedForces in general
