The Syrian government army is advancing, the “oppositionists” are losing. As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Zelenin, ссылаясь на news Al-Watan service, Syrian government forces yesterday began clearing the eastern quarters of Aleppo.
Army special forces entered the Sakhhur area, one of the last local strongholds of the rebel formations. The release of Sakhhur will open the way to the elimination of hotbeds of resistance in the northeast of the city in Masakin Hannano and allow you to advance to the Tariq al-Bab neighborhood to unblock the road to the international airport.
Government forces will approach the south-eastern outskirts, which are still controlled by the militants. Yesterday, fierce fighting took place in the area of Marjah, Salihin and Firdous squares.
Regular troops, notes correspondent. ITAR-TASS, reflect the attempts of the "rebels" to transfer reinforcements from the province of Idlib and from the Turkish border to the rescue of the militants surrounded in Aleppo.
Destroyed more than 80 jeeps and pickups with machine guns; dozens of terrorists were killed and wounded (information from the Surya Al-En Agency). SANA reports that the authorities in the northern province have pardoned over 120 people - from those oppositionists who have “no blood of civilians” in their hands.
Thus, we will add from ourselves, the government forces squeeze and squeeze “oppositionists”. We wish the fighters victory!
The “militia” groups dissolve themselves, so the government issued a decree on their dissolution. 22 September, the authorities of Libya decided to dissolve the armed groups in the country. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
Under the elimination fall all groups whose activities are not regulated by the Government of Libya. In Benghazi, a special headquarters has been established, which will include representatives of the army, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and legal armed groups subordinate to the Ministry of Defense. He will coordinate the disbanding of the armed units.
This decision to dissolve was taken a day after the residents of Benghazi, dissatisfied with the excessive influence of members of armed groups, attacked the base of the Islamist organization Ansar al-Sharia. As a result, 11 people were killed and 70 injured.
As reported by Reuters, the Ansar al-Sharia leadership has already decided to dissolve itself; The leaders of the Abu Slim organization also decided to disband themselves.
Here it is, the Libyan democracy in action, add from itself. As long as the groups did what they wanted, the government could not control them and resigned to their existence. As soon as the gang members decided to disband their organizations, the government got out with its ruling. When the detachments change their identity, the government will again issue a decree on the formation of a “militia”. Anything like the authorities in Benghazi, but not on the government of the country. Libyan democracy is directly contraindicated: too strong side effects.
Railway Minister gives a hundred thousand dollars for the head of the author of the “Innocence of Muslims”. This amount, Mr. Ghulam Ahmed Bilur, Minister of Railway Communication of Pakistan, offered 22 September for the head of an unknown author of an amateur film, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
However, the Pakistani government disowned the murder award. Bilura’s proposal, as the spokesman for the Pakistani Prime Minister said, does not reflect the official position of the government. Now Mr. Bilur continues to work for the benefit of the railways of Pakistan.
Lenta specifies that the film “The Innocence of Muslims”, in which Islam is mocked, was shot in the USA by the director of erotic films Alan Roberts. According to the director, he did not know about the anti-Islamic nature of the film: it was re-voiced after the shooting. The film was produced by Nakula Bassley Nakula, who did not warn about future changes in the film. Bilur proposed 100 thousand dollars for N. B. Nakula’s head.
How does the democratic court machine in Egypt. The Supreme Administrative Court of Egypt yesterday issued a decision on the legality of the dissolution of the National Assembly (lower house of parliament), formed by the results of the first democratic elections in the country after the 2011 revolution of the year, according to correspondent RIA "News" Alexander Elistratov.
In June, the 2012 of the Egyptian Constitutional Court declared the elections to the lower chamber null and void. This decision was the basis for the decree of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces on the dissolution of the legislature. Since then, the State Council (High Administrative Court) has received several appeals against this decision. The trial was scheduled for September 22.
Interestingly, on the eve of the State Council (with a break of several hours) adopted on this very case - the dissolution of parliament - two mutually exclusive solutions. The first postponed the hearing to October 15, and the second recognized the legality of the decision to dissolve the National Assembly.
The “multiplicity” of the decisions concerning the Egyptian parliament caused bewilderment of the lawyers and politicians of Egypt. The Saturday decisions of the State Council were commented as follows: “September 22 was the most absurd day in stories Egyptian legal proceedings. "
Many political parties because of the “unclear position of the State Council” demanded that the Supreme Administrative Court be removed from the list of structures that have the right to deal with conflicts and appeals of the parties during the upcoming parliamentary elections.
The next day, on Sunday, the Administrative Court finally declared the country's parliament dissolved by virtue of the verdict of the Constitutional Court, rendered in June of this year.
It is also noted that, along with the confirmation of the verdict, the State Council confirmed the right to be elected to the new parliament by the former members of the People’s Democratic Party of Egypt (the former “party in power” under Mubarak).
Two ships, three ships ... Two Chinese ships this morning entered the Japanese waters near the Senkaku Islands, which the Chinese call Diaoyu. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to Kyodo.
In addition, France-Presse reports that four watchdog Chinese ships were spotted in proximity to Japanese territorial waters.
Corr. ITAR-TASS Vasily Golovnin reports from Tokyo that another Chinese watchdog entered the territorial waters zone at Senkaku - after two ships of oceanographic observation under the flag of the People's Republic of China. Thus, now there are already three Chinese vessels in this zone.
Japanese border guards on the radio require these ships to go into international waters, but they do not respond. In the area of Senkaku, notes ITAR-TASS, concentrated 11 Chinese ships. In the office of the Prime Minister of Japan, there is a crisis headquarters.
China is not going to give up the islands. Beijing will use unmanned aerial vehicles to control the adjacent marine areas, including Senkuku Islands (Diaoyu). This was reported yesterday by the Main Oceanographic Office of China, reports from Beijing correspondent ITAR-TASS Andrei Kirillov.
The UAV use center will be located in Lianyungang, a coastal city in Jiangsu Province. A drone database system is planned to be created by 2015 year.
Jubilee will not. “Due to the current situation” (meaning all the same islands), China postponed the celebrations in honor of the 40 anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with Japan. Reports about it "Lenta.ru"referring to Xinhua and France-Presse.
As the France-Press told the Japanese diplomat on condition of anonymity, the Chinese warned Tokyo about postponing the event. It's about indefinite time.
Add on my own: the term is immediately determined as soon as the Japanese give Senkaku to the Chinese.
15 years for ally Bo Xilai. Former Vice Mayor of Chongqing Wang Lijun, “right hand” Bo Xilai, was sentenced to a 15-year jail term. This is stated in today's official statement of the court of the city of Chengdu, reports from Beijing correspondent ITAR-TASS Fedor Zhirov.
The prosecutor accused Wang Lijun of using the law for personal gain, as well as bribery. In February, 2012, the vice mayor, fled to the United States Consulate General in Chengdu. A day later, he left the US diplomatic mission - and was detained by the Chinese authorities.
Earlier, recalls "Ribbon", the Chinese court sentenced the death penalty (with a two-year deferment of execution) to Bo Xilai's spouse - Gu Kailai. This marked the complete collapse of the political career of the former member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the CPC, who claimed to be a member of the standing committee of the Political Bureau.
Bo Xilai’s case, suspected of “serious disciplinary offenses,” is currently handled by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
The freest radio in the world remained in Russia without frequencies. The head of the representative office of Radio Free Europe, Elena Glushkova, announced the termination of the broadcast of Radio Liberty on medium frequencies from November 10 on 2012, BBC Russian Service reports (the publication source "InoSMI").
Stressing that the decision to stop broadcasting is related to the media law signed by Dmitry Medvedev, Mrs. Glushkova told the press: “For a period of time we stay on short waves and then go to another platform, in particular, on the Internet.”
According to the new resolution, a company broadcasting on Russian radio cannot have more than 48% of foreign authorized capital. And the founders of "Freedom" exceed the legal limit.
It is also reported that the Internet edition of the Russian service of "Freedom" was dismissed on Thursday last week - in full force.
For the former editorial staff of Freedom, Lyudmila Telen, the personnel decision about mass layoffs came as a surprise - just like for all other employees. After all, the online version has nothing to do with broadcasting.
The new director of the service is Masha Hessen.
Opposition in the Belarusian parliament does not shine. As the RIA News", the head of the Central Election Commission of Belarus Lidia Yermoshina, on the basis of preliminary information, stated that it is unlikely that the Belarusian opposition will get into the parliament.
She said at a press conference today in Minsk: “We have not yet had time to personally study the information, there are only the names of the elected candidates, but it is doubtful that someone passed (from the opposition). None of the regions have reported this. ”
RIA Novosti recalls that the opposition did not enter the Belarusian parliament in either 1999 or 2004.
Two opposition forces are participating in this election: the movement “For Freedom” and the Party of Oppositional Communists.
US senators threaten Ukraine with sanctions. The Senate of the US Congress adopted a resolution on Ukraine, in which it demands the release of Yulia Tymoshenko. If the authorities of Ukraine do not release Yulia, then the Senate will apply sanctions. Talk about it "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS. (On the threats of the Senate, see also in the previous "Geopolitical mosaic").
In a resolution drafted at the initiative of Republican James Inhof, senators urge the State Department not to issue Ukrainian entry officials into the United States, "who are responsible for imprisonment and mistreatment of Ms. Tymoshenko, and more than a dozen political leaders associated with with the Orange Revolution 2004 of the Year. ”
In addition, US senators called on the Ukrainian authorities to "hold parliamentary elections in October in an honest and transparent way, in accordance with the standards of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe."
US lawmakers say that "Ms. Tymoshenko’s continued imprisonment threatens to worsen ties between the United States and Ukraine."
Senators, who have long been haunted by various sanction lists, would have gone further in their “resolutions”, without softening the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee the content of the document. Appeals from the original text were removed to suspend the work of the US Embassy in Kiev and to stop cooperation between NATO and Ukraine (temporarily).
However, the most resolute in judicial terms, closely interlocking with the executive, were not senators, but the omnipresent Hillary Clinton. Back in May, she stated that the United States insists on the release of not one ex-prime minister of Ukraine, but also "other imprisoned members of her government, as well as the restoration of their civil and political rights in full."
It is necessary, we will add on our own, to establish on the planet one of the most humane and fair court - the American one. You can not even "ramify" the ideal American power, but give the Senate powers at the same time legislative, and judicial, and executive. Release Tymoshenko from the hospital ward? Release Khodorkovsky? Take action.
Loving Obama criticized warlike Romney. As reported from Washington correspondent ITAR-TASS Ivan Lebedev, US President Barack Obama gave a sharp response to Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who constantly accuses him of indecision in foreign policy. “If the (former) Governor Romney invites us to start another war, then let him say so,” Obama said in an interview with CBS yesterday.
Romney, also on CBS, once again said that the current US administration does not pursue a strict enough policy towards Iran and does not fulfill its allied obligations to ensure the security of Israel.
Obama said that when making decisions in the field of national security, he intends to be guided by the interests of his country. The US president said: "And I would like to stop any speculation on this topic."
Thus, let us add, the relatively peace-loving Obama has managed to clearly oppose himself to the militant Romney. This is probably the only difference that the American man in the street will be able to see between the “platforms” of the two candidates. The fact is that as for the rest, the candidate candidates say about the same thing, constantly arguing about how to solve problems, but not about the problems themselves.
Find three differences. The newspaper "New York Times" analyzed the speeches of presidential candidates at congresses of their parties. The publication came to the conclusion that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney talk about the same thing convey "Vesti".
Politicians appeal to the same arguments, their strategies of speaking almost completely coincide. In some cases, Obama and Romney even speak word for word.
On the video clip, mounted by American journalists, the overall plan for a speech at a party congress is clearly visible. The first part of the speech inspires listeners, the second reminds them of the unity of a great nation, in the third part the rivals reveal their views on tax policy and measures to support the middle class. Next, take the word of the wives of candidates who ... also talk about the same thing. In this case, both talked about the poor and difficult youth of their spouses.
No wonder, let us add: it is quite possible that both wives and candidates accidentally turned to the same speechwriting company, and the text writer, without further ado, built speeches according to the same template, replacing the names where necessary and adding aggressiveness, and in the other - naivety.
In order not to be mistaken in the choice of president. As the correspondent RIA "Novosti" Viktor Khrulreferring to the CNL-news news agency, the Christians of the United States decided to pray at the White House for 40 days - from September 25 to November 6. Prayer will be around the clock.
Jason Hershey, the founder of the movement “House of Prayer”, has already received official permission to pray near the White House. Mr. Hershey is sure: the round-the-clock long prayer will help his compatriots to make the right choice from two candidates, and the new president will not interfere with “seeking Jesus in the hope, in victory and in thanksgiving”. Prayer will not be boring: it will be accompanied by music and stage productions.
Bill Clinton about the qualities of his wife. Bill Clinton is confident that his wife Hillary has all the necessary qualities to act as head of state. True, the former 42 th president of the United States does not undertake to predict whether she will fight for this post in the election-2016, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Ivan Lebedev.
In an interview with CBC, Clinton said: "I have no idea what she decides to do."
Hillary Clinton will be 65 in October. And she announced that she would soon leave the state secretary office - even if Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term.
Bill Clinton confirmed this information. He said his wife was tired of the civil service. According to him, Hillary wants to get some rest and maybe write a book.
Relax? .. Write a book? .. Suspicious lull before the storm, add on my own. Bill knows everything, but he knows how to keep secrets much better than some American politicians, for example, Mitt Romney.
As for Obama, who may soon be left without a secretary of state, you can sympathize with this honey brewer. If until now the foreign policy of America was determined by Mrs. Clinton, and, according to rumors, she wrote television speeches to the president, just as she wrote them earlier to Bill Clinton, now Mr. Obama will have to look for a new speechwriter, not to mention a new Secretary of State.
However, we know what book Mrs. Clinton is going to write. She will receive the title: ““ Assad should leave, ”and her text, chapter by chapter, will be read out to us by turns by Barack Obama (if only he is re-elected) and the new secretary of state.
