#Yemen Houthi are saying "we attacked Aramco and we shall attack more targets". The possibility #US and #SaudiArabia have is to stop #Iran by putting an end to the genocidal war on #Yemen.

Otherwise, keep the war ongoing and fall into Iran's hands.

The #US policy is laughable.
#Yemen is capable of sending drones & missiles against #SaudiArabia and the #UAE if needed.

Houthis are increasing their military capabilities and #Iran is jumping in to support Yemen to stand to Saudi war.

Houthi have access to satellite facilities and GPS on drones & missiles
Houthis have new kind of third generation drones and missiles. Houthis #Yemen are forcing on #SaudiArabia new Rules of Engagement. If #US and #SaudiArabia would like to see #Yemen out of the "Axis of the Resistance", the solution is simple: Stop the war. Otherwise suffer from it

@BBCnews & @SkyNews & the multiple correspondents tasked with reporting/commenting on #Brexit you have a tendency to frame & report on optics not substance. Short thread on why yesterday was a very bad day for #UK @BrigidLaffan
1. GAC ministerial meeting met in Brussels yesterday. UK left an empty chair. Message-we won’t waste our resources on what concerns you even though it was a discussion about ‘rule of law’. Not smart when PM is going to Lux to meet #Juncker. @BrigidLaffan
2. Commission President Juncker & @MichelBarnier were cordial but clear in the post meeting statement. It is U.K’s ‘responsability’ to come forward with ‘legally operational solutions’. Despite the spin there are no such solutions on the table. @BrigidLaffan

I started a thread about Vice President Pence going in President Trump's stead to Poland. The President announced it on the 29th from the rose-garden of the White House. Hurricane Dorian changed everything, so today ~

Cannot believe that @GordonDimmack is the person Stranahan, Nixon & @theProgSoapbox go to for an analysis of #Briexit. All I see is an emotional tirade without any political analysis "No enterprise is more likely to succeed than one concealed until it is ripe for execution."
1. Corbyn is a Brexiteer he may have campaigned to remain but to bring about the changes the Labour Party want the UK has to leave the EU.
Wonder why Gordon in his rants makes no mention of that?
2. #Corbyn has played a blinder. Boris Johnson told the UK we would leave on the 31st of October with or without a deal. He has been pushed into a corner and embarrassed. He is now forced to try and negotiate a deal!

1 - Yes, we want to grow it! #UK #Automotive exports £1 billion engines to Turkey, twice as much as the entire North-American region and second only to the EU. British engines are assembled into passenger cars and CVs exported from Turkey to the UK and other European countries.
2 - In 2018, we imported more than 175,000 finished vehicles from Turkey, mainly cars and vans. In 2008, we were importing just over 65,000. Turkey ranked 5^ among the biggest export markets for UK cars.
3 - High level of integration was fuelled by favourable trading conditions of the EU-Turkey customs union. This agreement allows all industrial goods to be traded tariff-free, regardless of their origin, once in free circulation in the EU-Turkey customs area.

1. #Yemen #UN Group of Eminent Experts just released second annual report.

GEE recommend states strengthen their mandate at #UN Human Rights Council this month, incl. to collect + preserve evidence of abuse and report directly to HRC.

Thread below.

ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HR…
2. After release of first report, #Yemen #UAE #Saudi #Egypt refused to cooperate with group.

Despite restrictions, GEE conducted >600 interviews w/ victims, witnesses and other sources, and examined a large volume of documentary and open-source material.
3. Legal context: non-international armed conflict between Houthis and GoY, with coalition as parties (tbd how UAE/Yemen battles impact in future).

Also note other non-international armed conflicts, incl between AQAP and GoY, with IHL applying to US actions against AQAP.

A fisking of the opinion piece by Michelle Jongenelis (from the doghouse of @DrOliviaDoll1) in Fairfax media. No public link known (it appeared in a variety of regional newspapers around #Australia).
"THE recent death of a US man who contracted a serious lung disease after taking up #vaping comes as no surprise to many #PublicHealth advocates."
No mention of #BlackMarket, unregulated #cannabinoids, despite 6 US regions involved, explicitly mentioning it.
"Contrary to the messages being disseminated by the vaping industry (an industry now largely owned by #BigTobacco), .."
Wrong! Neither the majority of companies, nor vape sales, involve products ownership by the #TobaccoIndustry.

(1) I wonder if American audiences fully grasp the enormity of what #BorisJohnson has done by asking the Queen to suspend #Parliament. This is way more extreme than if #Trump asked #MitchMcConnell to delay the Senate session to avoid an unpopular vote. cnn.com/europe/live-ne…
(2) To put this #ConstitutionalCrisis in perspective, you have to remember that the #UK's parliamentary supremacy vests far more power in their legislature than we've ever given to ours. Under the American system, the Constitution is supreme. Under the UK system, Parliament is.
(3) Things have gotten trickier in recent years as #Parliament delegated some power to other institutions: regional assemblies in #Scotland and #NorthernIreland, a Supreme Court (Lords use to be the highest court), and made other structural changes. see: talkingpoliticspodcast.com/blog/2019/168-…

No time to read @ITIFdc report of UK clean #energy #innovation performance but want to know how the UK performed?

www2.itif.org/2019-global-en…

@beisgovuk @ScotGovEnergy @EnergySysCat @theCCCuk
@ITIFdc @beisgovuk @ScotGovEnergy @EnergySysCat @theCCCuk UK just makes top 10, performing best on 'social legitimation' (i.e. making clean energy more acceptable).

Does well too on 'option generation' (i.e. scale & diversity of clean energy RD&D funding).

Poorest on 'scale-up' (i.e. later stage demonstration & commercialisation).
@ITIFdc @beisgovuk @ScotGovEnergy @EnergySysCat @theCCCuk UK has done extremely well on growing its RD&D spend, ranking 1st of all the @MICleanEnergyRD countries. Kudos to @beisgovuk and its Industrial Strategy spending, which I imagine has been the primary driver.

Possiamo affermare senza tema di smentita che #UK abbia una tradizione di eccellenze nella #SciTech (Science & Technology). Se il suo Gov riuscirà a gestire profittevolmente l'opportunità #silkroad #China (col "carburatore" a moneta sovrana £) l'#EZ sarà solo un brutto ricordo.
Il 4-1-2017 lessi (forse fra i primi) questa news: "La #Cina/#China ha appena presentato una nuova linea ferroviaria '#SilkRoad' che arriva fino a #Londra. Gli Stati Uniti dovrebbero essere preoccupati". Era chiarissima la sua portata economica.🚆💴💷💵
foreignpolicy.com/2017/01/04/all…
Il piano avrebbe aiutato la #Cina, così come l'#Asia, ad acquisire solidi legami commerciali nel mondo. La #SilkRoad equivale ai collegamenti terrestri e la "strada" si riferisce a una rotta commerciale marittima con 71 paesi che fanno già parte del progetto, tra i quali 🇷🇺 e 🇳🇿.

This opinion piece by a few Ozzies is so full of contorted thinking & debunked logic it is worthy of a @Clive_Bates 13K word smack-down, but I expect he's busy on other things so I'll post some brief points.

"Maternal smoking and intrauterine exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine have been linked.."
Nicely snuck #nicotine in there. Onya!
If U don't understand that CO and tar are largest source of harm from #tobacco #SMOKE then perhaps U should stay in the shallow end of the pool.
"These devices still deliver nicotine .."
You say that like it's a bad thing.
The evidence to support that needs to be balanced by evidence of healthful effects re Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, Dementia, ADHD, Schizophrenia..
