#BreakingNews:

Schedule of 5 #Iran/ian tankers to #Venezuela :

1. Fortune arrived at PDVSA refinery al-Palito.

2. Forest arrived at Punta Cardón (Falcon)

3. Petunia expected TODAY at al-Palito

4. Faxul expected Thursday at Falcon

5. Clavel expected Saturday at Punta Cardón.
If you believe these 5 tankers came from #Iran to supply #Venezuela with fuel and refineries spare parts, u are dead wrong.

This is much more: Skilful Iran is honest with its friends and allies but has also waited 40 years to lead the world uprising against the #US imperialism+

With sweat & blood of thousands of #Pakistanis, peace has been restored in our tribal areas along the border with #Afghanistan.

But #Pakistan haters in #Kabul are hellbent on creating ethnic discord & lawlessness in our towns & cities with online spread of ethnic propaganda.

/1
Objective is simple:

To fuel anti state misinformation in #Pakistan using millions of dollars in coordination with #Indian intel.

#NDS agents have laid an elaborate network & Imtiaz Wazir is their key operatives working as a go between of #PTM leadership & Afghan officials.

Other two officials who oversee international promotion of #PTM propaganda are ex Afghan Amb to #US Hamdullah Mohib currently serving as the National Security Adviser to Afghan President
&
His former deputy Majeed Qarar the cultural attaché at Afghan Embassy in Washington DC.

Recent spate of prosecutions in #UAE and #MiddleEast of Hindu expats for comments supposedly anti-Islamic. Of course, I don’t condone religious hatred. News that most of these were “doxed” by Indian leftists made me write this. 1/14
Yes, they are wrong. Yes, it is easy for ME rulers to punish them, expel them & destroy their lives. But who gains? Polpotist rapist butcher Indian left is invested in conflict, chaos & anti-Hindu hatred & enemity between Hindus and Muslims. 2/14
As loyal coolies of Beijing, they think this can help China & its Pak poodles. I beg intelligent ME Arabs not to fall in their trap & destroy good ties w Hindus. Arabs, like Persians, Chinese, and Indians had a glorious history when West was practically living in caves. 3/14

Partis aux #Emirats pour surveiller des entreprises pétrolières, des Soudanais se sont retrouvés finalement forcés d'aller se battre sur le front #Yéménite contre les #Houthis 💣🩸
Explications en plus de mon enquête de ce jour dans @LEXPRESS mag.

1) Ibrahim, comme bcp de jeunes Soudanais est sans emploi. Les grandes manifestations de 2019 n'ont pas encore résolu tous les maux sociaux et économiques du pays. Alors, quand on l'informe que des agences proposent des postes de sécurité aux #UAE, il saisit l'opportunité.
2) Amanda's Agency ou encore Princess's Office décrivent la mission : surveiller des installations pétrolières émiraties avec une formation de 3 mois dans un camp à Abu Dhabi. Nourriture et logement pris en charge et paie de 1840 AED (500 dollar) par mois.

Deciphering the #Serraj vs #Kabir squabble.

1 must go back to May-Oct 2018, when both #UN & #US began exerting a pressure on the #CBL in #Tripoli.

At the time, an #LNA attack on the capital wasn't seen as imminent, nor was a #Hibri-#Kabir reunification considered a hot priority
Following #Haftar's Jun '18 #OilCresc blockade, #US (thru the #UN) helped #CBL devise a measure, which was implemented after the Aug-Sep '18 LoC battle in Tripoli.

An LoC #tax now made the de-facto conversion rate 3.9 dinars to 1 $.

$10k packages were introduced for households.
The #US-designed measure—rolled out by #Kabir in Oct ’18—was effectively a devaluation of the dinar w/ the added benefit of attracting banknotes back into the system.

The measure turned out to be a success.

It also reduced the amount of political controversy surrounding #Kabir

Just a reminder that when I first got the inside tip about the info am about to publish on #Lebanon's FSRU bids & the scandals attached to it the former cabinet was still in power
I had given the tip to an international newswire but the reporter was too lazy to write it, so I did
Wasted Energy

The Lebanese government may find itself in hot waters as one bid by a #Qatar-led energy consortium for a multi-billion dollars #gas-related project, included a legal slip enabling the latter to solely change its price after being awarded the contract.
The contract to build the country’s multiple Floating Storage and Re-gasification Units (FSRUs), as well as its Liquified Natural #Gas ( #LNG) pipelines, is yet to be awarded.
Once set, the project will supply Lebanon’s power plants with gas, and give Lebanon the capacity

1. Is the government of #Iran pushing citizens of #Iraq #Bahrain #KSA #UAE #Afghanistan out the way it is pushing #Pakistani #zaireen out?

2. Why is PM #ImranKhan's govt unable to engage with #Tehran or ask it to coordinate return of our citizens w/out risking #COVID19 spread?
@Office_AQPk #Pakistan is the only country in the world where the head of government has called for lifting sanctions on #Iran due to #COVID19 (despite evidence the sanctions & outbreak are not linked). But PM #ImranKhan is unable or won't discuss treatment of #Pakistani #zaireen with #Tehran

Yemeni Military Spox : @army21ye :Today we review some numbers and information on the confrontations of five years of steadfastness and of the challenge, despite the huge difference in the number and equipment between Yemen and its enemies.
1-The Yemeni armed forces succeeded in countering the fierce aggressive attack, even though it was outside the scope of the military and combat readiness to start the aggression.
2-The aggression raids announced by us are limited to what was monitored, and there are raids that were not monitored, especially during the first years of the aggression.

#COVIDー19 crisis response is another area where the performance of Prime Minister #ImranKhan's cabinet is inadequate & late resulting in a rapid surge in #coronavirus cases+infections. His TV address was unimpressive. @ImranKhanPTI can learn from @realDonaldTrump & @NYGovCuomo.
Unlike #USA+#Europe, #Pakistan is right next door to two epicenters of #COVIDー19 spread: #China & #Iran. China was initially late but later took impressive steps to contain the spread, incl quarantining #Pakistani citizens. Unlike Iran where Pk citizens visited in large numbrs.
What steps did PM #ImranKhan take for a #CoronaFreePakistan when it was obvious #Pakistan faced #COVIDー19 spread threat from #Iran; & when it became obvious that almost every neighbor incl #Iraq+#Turkey+#Gulf traced 1st cases to Iran & when #Tehran failed to warn neighbors?

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
