Victory Hugo. As transmits correspondent ITAR-TASS Sergey Sereda, Hugo Chavez won the presidential election. This was announced by the National Electoral Council, in 22: 00 local time, which unveiled the first final bulletin.
According to the bulletin, 54,44% of voters voted for “frantic”. The leader of the Bolivarian revolution scored more than 7,4 million votes.
Enrique Capriles, the main opponent of Chavez in the elections, standing for the Bloc of Democratic Unity, received 44,97% of votes, or 6,1 million votes.
The remaining four candidates for the highest state post gained cumulatively less than 1% of votes.
At the presidential election was 80% of voters, showing a record high level of civic engagement.
There were so many people willing to vote that the Central Election Commission of Venezuela was forced to decide to extend the work of the polling stations. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
Initially, it was planned that the voting would end in 18: 00 local time, but because of the large queues, it was decided to postpone their closure.
In total, there are thousands of polling stations in the country 13,6, and over 19 millions of Venezuelans have the right to vote.
Frank Badjak and Ian James (Associated Press, publication in The Washington Times) talk about the victory of Hugo Chávez like this: “President Hugo Chávez won the Sunday elections, defeating rival Enrique Capriles and gaining another six years to strengthen his legacy and move forward in the crusade for Venezuelan socialism.”
This is the third victorious reelection of Chávez in almost 14 years of his tenure - although not as triumphant as in the 2006 year, when he won with 63 percent votes. Fireworks were arranged in the center of Caracas, write American journalists, supporters of Chavez waving flags and jumping for joy around the presidential palace.
Chavez defeated 7,4 with a million votes, beating Capriles by more than 1,2 with a million votes.
Capriles has already congratulated Hugo and told his supporters not to feel defeated. “We sowed a lot of seeds in Venezuela, and I know that many trees will grow from them,” he told his supporters at a speech last night.
The article says that Chavez spent a lot of money before the vote, built public housing and financed an expanded social program to provide benefits for poor families.
The merit of Capriles is seen by American journalists in rallying the opposition.
One of Chavez's voters, private bodyguard Carlos Julio Silva, said that for all his flaws, Chavez deserved victory, turning the country's oil wealth into free medical care, public housing and other generous government programs for the poor.
“There is corruption, there is bureaucracy, but people have never had a leader who would have cared so much about this country,” Silva said after voting for Chavez (in a school in the slums of Caracas).
And one of Chavez's opponents, auto mechanic Gino Caso, believes that Chavez is power-hungry and does not solve the problem of crime. He reported that his son was robbed at a nearby store.
“I don’t know what planet he lives on,” said Caso, gesturing with his hands blackened by grease. “He wants to be like Fidel Castro, and eventually gain complete control over the country.”
Captured cousin and flag SSA near the Turkish village. The al-Farouq Free Syrian Army Brigade captured Husam Assad, a cousin of Bashar Assad. About this, as reported "Lenta.ru" With reference to the dubious Al-Arabiya channel, one of the rebel leaders, Sheikh Adnan al-Arour, 73, a Sunni imam, wrote on Twitter yesterday. When and where it happened, of course, is not specified.
Al-Arabia also says that as a result of the fighting between rebels and government forces on the Syrian-Turkish border, about 80 percent of cities and villages came under the control of the opposition. The rebels captured the city of Kirbat al-Joz.
According to Reuters, the rebels captured the outpost of the government army near the border. Oppositionists raised the SSA flag over a building located near the Turkish village of Guvecci.
Taliban winners. As the RIA News", the Taliban movement yesterday circulated an address to residents in connection with the 11 anniversary of the invasion of US troops in Afghanistan. It announced the victory of the movement over foreign forces.
On October 6, 2001, recall “News» aviation The United States attacked Taliban positions in northern Kabul and in the Tahar province. Then, American troops invaded Afghanistan under the pretext of combating Al Qaeda and international terrorism (Operation Enduring Freedom); later they were joined by military contingents in more than 50 countries. This year, Washington announced the withdrawal of its units from Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
The results of the long presence of Americans in Afghanistan, experts estimate very skeptical.
As columnist Wahid Mujda said in an interview with Tolo TV yesterday, US policy in Afghanistan has led to an escalation of tension in the region. “The international community and the United States, in particular, are pursuing the wrong policy in Afghanistan. They do not distinguish between terrorism and the rebel movement, so the latter is only expanding, ”the columnist said.
Afghan military expert Atikulla Amarheil said that the United States did not achieve its goal: “The US goal was to eradicate al-Qaeda.” When the international community could not meet the expectations of the Afghan people, the United States was already drawn into a war, during which the desired results were not achieved. ”
According to analysts of the TV channel “Tolo”, the militants still continue to fight, corruption in the country is not defeated, drug crime is increasing, government administration is weak, unemployment is high.
However, let us add on our own, it is unlikely that in 2014, the United States would completely withdraw its troops from Afghanistan. Most likely, a new deployment of the US military forces will be carried out, but with a smaller number of troops. This is indicated by some of the statements made by President B. Obama over the past two or three months, as well as by senior military officials from the Pentagon.
On the traditions of Hamas. The Hamas administration’s ministry of internal affairs in the Gaza Strip reported that it had begun to study the prison situation report prepared by the international human rights organization Amnesty International. It has already stated that it does not share the conclusions of the report, it transmits Rosbalt with reference to NEWSru.co.il.
Hamas accused human rights activists of being politically motivated: after all, they did not notice the crimes committed by Fatah in the West Bank. Islamists notice that they are not addicted to torture, including through electric stun guns, and, in general, policemen who abuse the use of force are dismissed. As for appeals from human rights defenders to abolish the death penalty, it is impossible: the abolition would be contrary to the traditional Palestinian justice system.
Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip. Yesterday, as a result of the strike by the Israeli Air Force in the Gaza Strip, one person died and 11, including three children, were injured, transmitting "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
The plane launched a rocket on a motorcycle in the city of Rafah. The target of the strike was two activists from the World Jihad group associated with Al-Qaida.
Henry Kissinger and US intelligence agencies believe that in ten years Israel will disappear from the world map. About this tells the Iranian channel Press TV (translation source - Mixednews.ru).
Henry Kissinger and with him for the company 16 American intelligence agencies believe that in the near future, Israel will cease to exist. “The New York Post” quotes Comrade Kissinger literally: “There will be no Israel in ten years.”
No, Henry Kissinger does not propose or build scenarios; Nor does he speak about the possible results of elections in the USA (where Mitt Romney, Netanyahu’s old friend, can win). He simply states the fact: by the year 2022 Israel will not.
American intelligence agencies agree with this, although they are not sure of the exact date. Sixteen US intelligence agencies with a total budget of 70 billions of dollars presented to the general public a material of eighty-two pages, called “Preparing for the Middle East without Israel.”
The text states that 700 thousands of Israeli settlers illegally live on land stolen in 1967. The whole world agrees that these lands belong to Palestine, but the Israelis are not going to give them away. And with this behavior, Israel reminds the security services of South Africa at the end of the eighties. Moreover, the Israeli-dominated extremist Likud party, according to an American analysis, contributes to the violence perpetrated by the settlers. Apartheid atrocities and crimes, including the Israeli separation barrier with the CAT system, cannot be justified because they are contrary to American values.
And all sixteen special services agree that Israel cannot withstand the arriving pro-Palestinian force, which includes the Arab Spring, not to mention Iran.
A special report explicitly states that the US government has neither military nor financial resources to further support Israel. As expected, in order to normalize relations with fifty Islamic countries, the United States will have to follow its own national interests and ... give up on Israel.
It is curious that Comrade Kissinger, as a Jew, does not intend to mourn Israel, according to Press TV. And the secret services do not shed tears.
Observers conclude that Americans are fed up with Israeli irreconcilability and obsession. Netanyahu’s ridiculous speech at the UN General Assembly, where he was waving a cardboard box with a caricature bomb drawn on it (as a result of which he became a character in the caricature “Mad Zionist”) overwhelmed the patience of Washington. At the same time, public opinion in America turns away from Israel. Even the American Jews - and those in their majority are not inclined to support the policies of Israel. Jewish journalists and analysts - such as Philip Weiss - recognize the insanity of the ruling forces of Israel and the hopelessness of its position.
According to surveys conducted among young Americans of Jewish descent, to care about the fate of Israel today has become "not fashionable." Despite Netanyahu’s attempts to persuade Jewish voters to cast votes to Mr. Romney, the statistics stubbornly say that Obama will receive the majority of Jewish votes (the report says about his “hatred” for “liar Netanyahu”).
The effect of a bombshell was produced by the fact that the press - from somewhere "from above" - leaked information about the involvement of Israel and its supporters, and not at all radical Muslims, in the 9 / 11 attacks. Quote: “More often, not radical anti-Semitic groups are talking about this, but high-level observers. Alan Sabroska, a former director of the Department of Strategic Studies at the US Military College, half-Jewish, participated in a radio broadcast by the author of this article, where he noted that he had discussed this issue with colleagues. They debated with absolute certainty that Israel and its supporters were behind the 9 / 11 events. The same opinion was expressed by the former BBC correspondent in the Middle East, Alan Hart, who is a friend of Yasser Arafat and Golda Meir. ”
Merlin Miller, a US presidential candidate who will participate in the 6 election of the third party in November 2012, has already publicly declared Israel’s involvement in the 9 / 11 terrorist attacks: between Israel and the United States. It was a desperate attempt to ensure the survival of Israel by starting long wars against the enemies of this state. The police were convinced that the “dancing Israelis” arrested for the celebration of 9 / 11: “Our enemies are your enemies. Your enemy is the Palestinians. ”
From here, analysts conclude: "... Israel has expired."
Libyan affairs. The General National Congress of Libya dismissed Prime Minister Mustafa Abu-Shagur. Reports about it "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
The parliamentarians took the decision to dismiss him after the composition of the interim cabinet, proposed on Sunday by Abu-Shagur, did not suit them. Over the past four days, this was the second rejected attempt by the prime minister to assemble a cabinet. Mustafa Abu Shagur did not stay in office for a month.
125 from 200 parliamentarians voted for the resignation of Abu-Shagur. In the next few weeks, the General National Congress should elect a new prime minister.
The Libyan government, we note, is as shaky as the Libyan democracy.
Sudan is calming down. Omar Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir, President of Sudan, ordered the opening of water and land borders with South Sudan. Conflicting countries agreed on the resumption of oil transit and the creation of a demilitarized border zone, "Vesti" with reference to ITAR-TASS.
In late September, the two heads of state finally reached agreement on economic issues.
The European leader of Kurdish militants arrested in Paris. French police arrested the European leader of the Kurdish Workers Party and its three militants, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to France-Presse.
October 6 in Paris was arrested the alleged leader of the organization in Europe, whose name was not called. On the same day one of the militants was arrested. Two other militants were detained on October 7 in northwestern France.
The arrests were carried out as part of the anti-terrorism program announced in France after the March 2012 events. Terrorist Mohammed Mera, an al-Qaida associate, shot three paratroopers, four children and one rabbi in Toulouse. After a siege of his home for hours, he was killed by the special forces of the French police.
57 Spanish cities protest the government’s economic policies. As the RIA News" With reference to the newspaper El Pais, thousands of people took part in demonstrations in 57 cities in Spain, including the capital, to protest the government’s economic policy against the background of the recession that swept the country.
People oppose higher taxes and new job cuts in medicine, education and social services.
The protests were organized by trade unions and 150 by various organizations that did not agree with the economic policies of the authorities and demanded the government’s resignation. The action participants called for a general strike and a national referendum on economic issues.
They will be big-eyed and long-armed. After a thousand years, as a result of evolution, the structure of the human body will change. Such assumptions were put forward by experts who made predictions of the descendants of homo sapiens, published on the website of the newspaper San, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Roman Podervyansky.
According to British scientists, the average height of a person through 1000 years will be from 1,83 to 2,13 meters. People will grow up due to improved nutrition and the development of medicine.
Changes in the human digestive tract. A shorter intestine will absorb less fat and sucrose, which will become a natural defense against weight gain. The number of teeth can also decrease, since soft food requires less chewing, and at the same time the size of the mouth. And if the male fertility continues to decline, the sex glands of the strong half of humanity will shrink.
According to experts, our descendants will have their hands and fingers “drastically lengthened.” The number of their nerve endings will also increase - “due to more frequent use of devices that require complex hand-eye coordination.” The eyes will increase due to the need for compensation: something needs to take place on the face while the mouth is reduced. Hence the conclusion that "the basis of communication will be the expression of the face and the movement of the eyes." In short, the big-eyed and long-armed.
But the volume of the human brain will be reduced. Brainwashing will be caused by the fact that “most of the work on memorizing and thinking will be done by computers”.
And if now, add on our own, the children of the new generation - that in the West, in Russia, which can copy from the West, alas, only bad, because efforts are almost unnecessary, they prefer instead of “Anna Karenina”, “ Grapes of Wrath "," For Whom the Bell Tolls "," All the Royal Ratio "and even Chekhov's" Jumping "read a brief retelling, and in the States seriously puzzled over the simplification of tests in mathematics, because it is difficult for a 4 course student to divide 117 by 4, then what will be the years through 1000? The brain will probably be needed only in order to reach out a lengthened hand from the computer and take Snickers, and eyes - to tell the wife: alas, I am still powerless.
Why say with the eyes and not with the mouth? Because the mouth will be occupied by Snickers.
The creatures of the neuter. Ekaterina Zorina ("Vesti") spoke about the scandal erupted in Latvia, associated with a book for children about gender equality.
The fact is that the manual offers girls to become boys for a while, and vice versa. This book and other Latvian officials are going to be distributed among preschool children. But non-governmental organizations opposed such an initiative, saying that it would negatively affect the psyche of the little ones.
The stories in the children's book with a bright cover bear remarkable names: “The day when Karlis was Karlina” and “The day when Ruta was Richard”.
The girl character wakes up in a room with toy cars. And the whole day her name is a man's name, take on football.
The boy is surrounded by dolls in the morning, in the kindergarten of Karlis-Karlin they are invited to play “daughter-mothers”, giving him the role of “elder sister”. Okay, at least, not allowed to act as a father.
The title page of the manual states: "Developed on the instructions of the Minister of Welfare, to provoke a debate on the role and equality of the sexes in kindergartens."
More than 50 of public organizations of the country came out against the book. However, Ilze Winkele, Minister of Welfare, believes that the time has come to break stereotypes. “Obviously, the problem of gender equality is relevant in Latvian society,” she says. - Here are three indicators that reflect this: firstly, women still earn less, secondly, women are much more educated than men, thirdly, male mortality is much higher. Problems need to be solved! ”
“But why in kindergarten?” - indignant those who did not like the book.
“When the boy ate breakfast, his mother asks him to remove the dishes, and he is embarrassed. Because he usually did not do it, Judite Briede says indignantly. - So what does this teach? It does not teach a man to be careful, responsible and clean up after himself. This shows him that only girls clean the dishes behind themselves, that this is women's work. Nothing new! It turns out that if you want to do this work - you need to change, you need to accept a different identity, a different gender! ”
Officials in response say: well, yes, the title is not the most successful. And the text is generally translated from Danish. And the book itself was published with the money of the Nordic Council of Ministers, saving on budget expenditures. But after all, Scandinavia is famous for its free views on family issues ... And for some reason, many Latvians do not want the boys, who in three years have inspired that you can become a girl, with this worldview will move along the path of life ...
The authors of the “manual” have reached the point that at the end of the plot the heroes generally abandoned their names and became known as Uno and Duo. These middle-class characters inspired thoughts of tolerant European “parents” to fathers and mothers from Latvia, including same-sex ones, which are now called “parent number one” and “parent number two”. Dad and Mom are too old for Europe.
Today, the new Cabinet of Ministers of Georgia will be known. As transmits correspondent RIA Novosti Magi KikaleishviliThe leader of the Georgian Dream Bidzina Ivanishvili told the press about this.

The fight against the enemies of the "invisible front." DPRK leader Kim Jong-un called on the Ministry of State Security officials to step up their fight against the penetration of hostile ideology into the country, reports "Lenta.ru" with reference to the North Korean state news agency KCNA.
“The Ministry of State Security has a very important task - to protect the sovereignty of the country and the nation,” said Kim Jong-un. He recalled that employees of the department should continue to fight "against enemies on an invisible front." They should "make a revolution, remaining loyal to the party to the last under any circumstances."
Recently, in North Korea, recalls the "tape", more and more attention is paid to the propaganda and reports of the fight against enemy ideologies. For example, in July 2012, state media reported on “terrorists” sent by Americans to North Korea to destroy the statues of Kim Jong-il and Kim Il Sung, and in August, North Korea complained of “terrorists” from the UN.
Solid threats. Not only Texan-Russian spies led by Comrade Fischenko, who sold traffic lights, threatened the fragile national security of the United States, but now the Chinese are working in Huawei and ZTE.
The activities of the largest Chinese manufacturers of mobile devices and cellular equipment, as it turned out, represent a serious threat to the national security of the United States. About this in black and white is written in the report of the Committee on Intelligence at the US House of Representatives, which was at the disposal of the Associated Press agency, reports RIA News".
In order to reduce the risk of threats, the committee recommended private American companies to refrain from business contacts with Huawei and ZTE, and the US authorities to stop using the products of these manufacturers.
According to the authors of the report, US regulators should take care to prevent possible mergers of these Chinese companies with US firms and to prevent them from acquiring American companies.
In November last year, Bloomberg announced the intention of the US authorities to check the activities of Huawei and ZTE for the presence of tools for espionage in their products supplied to the USA. According to US officials, Chinese telecommunications equipment and mobile devices may contain hidden tools for covert transmission of information intended for intelligence.
“Huawei” and “ZTE” did not remain silent, and immediately declared their readiness to assist the investigation procedure - under one clear condition: if the procedure is “open and honest”.
In vain, the Chinese have so venomously expressed themselves to the inspectors from the United States. The ideologists of world democracy cannot be dishonorable.
Russians over America. As transmits ITAR-TASSReferring to the Office of the Press Service and Information of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Russian inspectors within the framework of the International Treaty on Open Skies will make observation flights over the territory of the USA - from today to October 22.
“It is planned to carry out two consecutive observation flights on the Russian observation plane Tu-154-Lx-1,” said the Russian military. “The flights will be operated from Wright-Patterson and Travis open-air airfields.”
Flights will take place on routes agreed by the parties. On board the aircraft, Russian and American experts will monitor compliance with the agreements on the use of surveillance equipment.
“These are the thirtieth and thirty-first observation flights of Russia over the territories of the States Parties to the Treaty this year,” the press service added in the Directorate.
It is also reported that experts from the UK in the period from 8 to 12 in October will perform an observation flight over the territory of Russia on the Swedish observation plane SAAB OS-100.
“An observation flight will be carried out from the Kubinka open sky airfield,” the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported. “The maximum distance of the route will be 5500 km.”
ITAR-TASS recalls that the Open Skies Treaty was signed in 1992, and among its members are the 34 states. Observation flights are made over the territory of the United States, Canada, European states and Russia.
Comrade Posobilova not released on bail. A court in Houston (Texas) refused to grant bail to Alexander Posobilov, a suspect in the case of dual-use microelectronics from Russia to the United States, reports Interfax With reference to the TV channel "Russia 24".
According to Sergey Azizov, Deputy Consul General of the Russian Federation in Houston, “the judge made a decision in respect of the citizen of Russia, that he remains in custody, he cannot be released on bail, because he has Russian citizenship, he repeatedly visited Russia, and the court is not sure that he will not leave the United States. "
The diplomat explained that the following decisions were made in relation to other employees of Arc Electronics. Hearings on the Fischenko and Klebanova cases will be considered on Wednesday, and Dyatlova - the day before, on Tuesday.
According to Azizov, the prosecution insists on postponing the hearing to New York. “This is the attitude of the prosecution to convict, including Russian citizens,” the diplomat said.
A terrorist with an upset psyche. As conveyed from New York correspondent ITAR-TASS Daniel Studnev, referring to the TV channel NBC, in Oklahoma, arrested a man who planned to blow up the churches 48.
A police spokesman said: “23-year-old Gregory Arthur Weller II was detained by police in the city of Miami, Ottawa, Oklahoma. A search of his bombs and a plan for installing them in Oklahoma's 48 churches were found in his house. ”
This Mr. arrested without bail. He is accused under the article "terrorism". As for his loved ones, the family of Weller said that he was upset psyche.
In America, the psyche seems to be upset not only in humans, but already in animals. Especially in cattle, and not only cattle.
Pigs ate an American farmer. It seems that this title comes from the yellow press, but the fact is that this terrible event is a fact. Besides, eating is not the first.
Brian palmer from "Slate" (translation source - "InoSMI") writes: “On Wednesday a single farmer from Oregon ate pigs. The 70-year-old Vietnam War veteran went to feed the animals in the morning, and after a few hours, his relatives found his denture and scattered remains in the pigsty ... ”
Animals in America kill their owners intentionally. According to a study conducted back in 2009, in the USA, livestock kill approximately 22 people per year, and in 75% of cases, horned and unmarked mammals attack their prey ... "quite consciously."
Palm killings - in bulls, cows and pigs. A journalist gives Americans advice: “If you are threatened by an angry pig or cow, run away and hide, for example, behind a tree. You can also take a big stick - for protection and in order to appear bigger. ”
If this goes further, we add from ourselves, then the US will not need either a socialist revolution, initiated by potential dictator Obama, or invasions of carnivorous zombies, which alarmists who believe in the series “Walking Dead” are afraid of hiding in basements and bunkers. Conscious pigs and cows will anger through Twitter, Facebook and the Washington Post about their many thousands of years of slavery and embark on a democratic struggle for rights and freedoms.
