1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

Today marks 2yrs since the territorial defeat of #ISIS's proclaimed 'Caliphate' in #Syria & #Iraq.

Militarily, the group remains engaged in a pre-planned decentralized insurgency, which is sustaining a steady tempo in #Iraq & #SDF areas & a clear *resurgence* in central #Syria.
The D-#ISIS Coalition has done all the right things thus far, but a disinvestment in #Iraq or #Syria would unquestionably benefit #ISIS's long-term plan (which we've seen play out before: 2010-14).

The deviation here is #Assad-held central #Syria -- a zone of deep, deep concern.
As analysts like @GregoryPWaters have shown, #ISIS is engaged in a methodical/sustained resurgence in central Syria -- where pro-#Assad forces have proven incapable of containing, let alone defeating a dispersed desert insurgency.

Tempo/potency/scope are consistently increasing.

#Iran's oil smuggling into Syria is not a new issue. They have been in place for several years, even before the #Trump administration imposed sanctions on Iran and on Syria.
The question facing Western intelligence was how #Syria pays Iran for the oil it receives. 2/25
As of May2018, when the #Iranians were barred from transferring funds in the international financial system, they had trouble getting the proceeds or payments for the oil they smuggled to China, North Korea, Syria & other countries like Turkey where oil was smuggled inland. 3/25

It's been 49 days. 49 busy days. And yet somehow the Biden administration still has NOT reversed Trump's Executive Order that threatens sanctions, monetary penalties & imprisonment on persons who assist the ICC!
This is shameful. And so revealing.
One way to think of terrorism is that it is the peacetime equivalent of war crimes. Opposing the ICC (as Israel does, as the US has done: see the Hague Invasion Act!!!) is a clear indication that "we" are NOT opposed to terrorism at all: we want impunity for "our terrorists" 2/
The car bombing described below was conducted by the CIA, Great Britain, Saudi Arabia & Israel. It killed 80 civilians in March, 1985. There has of course never been any accountability for this crime. Nor any acknowledgement of our responsibility!!! 3/

Ten years ago Yemen had reached a dead end and was perceived as a failed state. ......
Ali Abdullah Saleh was completing the transformation into an autocratic state, creating such problems that it took a miracle to prevent the fall into the abyss.
The revolution was directed against the corrupt and clientelist rule of Saleh, which led to the impoverishment of #Yemen , left many political questions unsolved, weakened state institutions and in the end undermined the republic by attempting to seize power to pass on his son.

The same attackers later launched an assault near downtown Oicha,
shooting two other civilians to death before fleeing into the nearby forest. According to civil society in Beni territory, the results of these two attacks are still provisional as some civilians have not been found since the attack on Tuesday.
