Hezbollah co-leader: US nurtured ISIS monster against Syrian govt, now has to fight them
The US had to step back from its policy of regime change in Syria after multiple failures, as the jihadists they allegedly hoped to use as a proxy began posing a threat, Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary General, Sheikh Naim Kassem, argued in an interview to RT.

For an exclusive interview with RT’s Eisa Ali, one of the most senior Hezbollah leaders agreed to meet –with the toughest security precautions in place – in a clandestine location in Beirut. Kassem told RT he believes US President Donald Trump has opted for a less confrontational approach in Syria of late after previous attempts to oust the Syrian government proved futile.

“When they failed by using the military option, or by using the opposition option, or by using their cooperation with the regional Arabic countries that wanted change in Syria in favor of Israel, America adopted a new non-confrontation policy with President [Bashar] Assad because of their inability to do more, and because they know that [Islamic State] is against them as much as they are against the Syrian people,” Kassem claimed.

He noted, however, that a perceived change in political strategy does not mean that the White House has reversed its opinion of Assad, arguing that the US has been left with no better option than to fight the “monster” of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) which they helped to create in the first place but which has “now shifted against them.”

‘We’ll respect any choice made by the Syrian people’

Speaking of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Hezbollah’s view on his role as the country’s head of state, Kassem said that the group regards Assad as the legitimate ruler of Syria, re-elected by the people to serve as the country’s leader.

Arguing that the main interest of the US in the war was to “remove President Assad from power and change Syria's stance from resistance to American-Israeli friendly,” he praised Assad for being an effective leader, guiding his country through difficult times of war.
However, he went on to stress that the Syrian President’s fate lies exclusively in the hands of the Syrian people.

“We are with the Syrian people’s choice and when it is election time and Syria’s choice will be made without external intervention, we will respect any choice made by the Syrian people.”

Kassem said there is an “effective” cooperation between the Syrian and Russian armed forces, Iran and Hezbollah, which has contributed greatly to Syria’s driving jihadists out of swathes of its territory.

‘Israel plays part in Syria’s destruction’

Accusing Israel of fuelling the protracted Syrian conflict, Kassem in particular pointed to the Jewish state’s reported support of armed opposition groups fighting the Syrian forces and affiliated militias in the south-western Syrian city of Daraa and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

“Israel plays the main part in Syria’s destruction, and it is an important supporter of the armed opposition, especially in the southern part of Syria,” Kassem said.

Kassem further claimed that over 3000 militants fighting the Syrian government have received treatment in Israeli hospitals, adding that there have been reports of cross-border supplies of munitions and food from Israel to Syria.

A US-Russian ceasefire agreement for south-western Syria dealt a blow to Israel’s alleged aspirations as it did not include removing Hezbollah from its positions in the border area, Kassem argued. Shortly after the deal was agreed in July, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the plan, saying it might strengthen Iranian influence in the country.

Criticism was levelled at Hezbollah in late August for allowing the evacuation of some 300 Islamic State terrorists and roughly as many family members from the Qalamoun Mountains to the eastern province of Deir al-Zor as part of the deal to return bodies of eight slain Hezbollah fighters. Kassem justified the controversial move by saying that the group did not know whether the fighters were alive or dead and that it was “an important chance that could not be [used] again.”

The deal sparked outrage, with critics slamming the group for negotiating with terrorists. After the deal was struck and the militants departed to Deir ez-Zor, the US-led international coalition shelled the road to impede relocations of militants and their family members and struck some of the vehicles and fighters it “clearly identified as ISIS.” In a statement following the attack, the coalition said it “was not a party to any agreement” negotiated between Lebanon, ISIS and Hezbollah and considered the moving of terrorists from one part of the country to another “not a lasting solution.”

Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict six years ago, Hezbollah has been embroiled in fighting IS and Al-Nusra Front terrorists in Syria in cooperation with government forces. The group, which is listed as a terrorist entity in the West and in most of the Arab League countries, has been repeatedly targeted by Israeli airstrikes on Syrian soil.

北朝鮮のミサイル開発、核実験は続くだろう

The examples of Iraq and Libya have convinced the North Korean leadership that only nuclear deterrence can protect them, so no sanctions can dissuade them, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Pyongyang will not relinquish its military program under pressure of sanctions and military threats, because the examples of Iraq and Libya have convinced it that nuclear deterrence is the only credible way to ensure its security, President Putin told journalists on Tuesday.

N. Korea warns more 'gift packages' on way if US continues 'reckless provocations'
North Korea says its recent missile launch and other “self-defense” measures were a “gift package” to the United States. It warns other such gifts are on the way if Washington continues its “reckless provocations.”

“The recent self-defense measures by my country, the DPRK, are a gift package addressed to none other than the US,” Han Tae-song, North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations, said during an address to the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday.

“The US will receive more gift packages from my country as long as it relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK,” he continued.

Han's statements come just two days after North Korea launched its sixth and most powerful missile test, with Pyongyang claiming the test involved a hydrogen bomb which can be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

China Rejects Possibility of Military Intervention in North Korea
TEHRAN (FNA)- Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang said at a briefing on Monday that Beijing is firmly committed to peaceful methods of resolving the situation on the Korean Peninsula and rejects any steps aimed at exerting military pressure on North Korea.

When asked if the Chinese People’s Liberation Army could invade North Korea in case the conflict escalated, he said that "it is a hypothetical question which it is hard to answer", TASS reported.

"However, we have said many times before that military methods are not on the list of means that China uses to resolve the situation on the Korean Peninsula," the Chinese diplomat added.

Geng Shuang pointed out that the global community’s response to the sixth nuclear test conducted by Pyongyang was unequivocal, despite the issue being highly complicated, it should only be resolved peacefully.

On September 3, North Korea announced a successful test of a hydrogen bomb that is capable of being used as a warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The test provoked a tough response from the global community, as China condemned Pyongyang’s actions, while South Korea and the United States said that a military response was also possible. Russia’s Foreign Ministry called on all parties to immediately resume dialogue and negotiations saying that it was the only way to find a comprehensive solution to the Korean Peninsula issues.

英国がイラク国境に近いアルタンフ軍事訓練基地から兵士を引き揚げ

UK Withdraws Forces from Al-Tanf Militant Training Base in Southern Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- The UK has ended training of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) terrorists in al-Tanf base and withdrawn from the base in Southern Homs near the border with Iraq, a Lebanese media outlet reported on Monday.

The English-language AMN website reported that the United Kingdom has withdrawn its troops from the coalition-operated al-Tanf base in Syria’s Southwestern desert and ended all military assistance hitherto provided to FSA-affiliated mercenaries in the region.

The UK-based Daily Telegraph reported the UK's wind-down of support for the FSA militants began in June of this year when at least 20 special forces troops were confirmed to have withdrawn from the al-Tanf base.

The former security commander of al-Tanf base in Syria revealed on Thursday that his comrades were selling arms to the ISIL terrorist group, adding that the US army took no action to stop the trade once it came in hold of relevant information.

The Arabic website of Sputnik news agency quoted Mohammad al-Salam, a former security official at al-Tanf base in Syria, as saying that commander of the US-backed Maqawir al-Thorah militant group Muhanned al-Tala sold the US-made weapons to the ISIL militants.

Noting that the equipment and weapons included SPG, Chas and Tata vehicles and a large number of M16 rifles, he said, "After the arms trade was disclosed, we informed the Americans that al-Tala is selling weapons to the ISIL but they took no action."

Al-Salam said that the US forces also attempted to transfer the people in Deir Ezzur to al-Shadadi base in Hasaka to make them fight against the Syrian army once the war on ISIL is over.

‘Terrorist’ Soros Petition Reaches 100K Signatures, Compels White House Reply

TEHRAN (FNA)- A petition calling on US President Donald Trump to declare Jewish billionaire George Soros a terrorist has garnered more than 100,000 signatures, enough to require a response from the White House.

More than 129,000 people had signed the online petition as of Monday, more than two weeks after a user posted it on the White House website’s We the People section, presstv reported.

The petition's accuses the billionaire of financing multiple organizations with the sole purpose of weakening the Trump administration, an allegation that has been making the rounds over the past years.

“Soros has created and funded dozens and probably hundreds of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government,” the petition says.

Soros has been accused of facilitating "color revolutions" through organizations such as MoveOn, which encourages people to hold anti-establishment protests.

Republican leaning media outlets like Fox News allege that MoveOn is much larger than what it looks and that it “owns” the Democratic Party. The network has openly suggested that Soros owns the organization.

During the 2004 presidential election, Soros gave nearly $1.5 million to the MoveOn.org Voter Fund. Following Trump’s election victory, the organization invited Americans to hold “peaceful” protests across the US.

Back then, MoveOn boasted on its website that it had created “over 200” gatherings within two hours of issuing the call.

Soros was a supporter of Trump’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, during the 2016 US presidential election, pouring millions of dollars into her campaign.

According to leaked emails released by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks, Clinton’s top aide John Podesta had instructed Soros in 2008 on how to stir American voters through organizations similar to MoveOn.

Soros is the founder and head of the Soros Fund Management hedge fund and one of the world’s wealthiest people. Forbes has put his fortune at around $25 billion.

Ryabkov: THAAD Deployment in South Korea, Japan May Force Russia to Respond
TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Monday that Russia may be forced to take military measures to counterbalance the deployment of the US THAAD missile defense systems to South Korea and Japan.

"What is going on directly near our borders in terms of boosting the potential of a missile defense system, and this concerns both South Korea and Japan, we will resort to our possibilities of developing military potential in this area," Ryabkov cautioned, TASS reported.

"If all this begins to unfold at such alarming rates, then inevitably, then at some moment, the question will probably arise as to our response in military terms of creating some counterbalances," the senior diplomat noted.

THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) is easily integrated into the missile defense systems of greater range and power, and all this is then fitting into the US integrated missile defense system, Ryabkov explained.

"THAAD is a missile defense system for the theater of operations."

Russia shares the concerns voiced by China on the plans to deploy the THAAD system in South Korea, he noted.

When asked if Russia may consider the deployment of its systems in response to this threat, Ryabkov stressed that "all options are on the table."

Putin: Military hysteria over N. Korea may lead to planetary catastrophe, heavy loss of life

The examples of Iraq and Libya have convinced the North Korean leadership that only nuclear deterrence can protect them, so no sanctions can dissuade them, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Pyongyang will not relinquish its military program under pressure of sanctions and military threats, because the examples of Iraq and Libya have convinced it that nuclear deterrence is the only credible way to ensure its security, President Putin told journalists on Tuesday.

“Ramping up military hysteria in such conditions is senseless; it’s a dead end,” he added. “It could lead to a global, planetary catastrophe and a huge loss of human life. There is no other way to solve the North Korean nuclear issue, save that of peaceful dialogue.”

The 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq and the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya both came after the leaders of those countries submitted to international pressure and relinquished their programs of weapons of mass destruction in exchange for sanctions relief.

North Korea for its part chose confrontation with the world community, successfully developing nuclear weapons and currently, rapidly perfecting the means of their delivery.

“As I told my colleagues yesterday, they will eat grass but will not stop their program as long as they do not feel safe,” Putin said. “What can restore their security? The restoration of international law.”

デリゾールの攻防 最終段階に突入

シリア政府軍が数日中にデリゾールのISISによる包囲を解くと公言しています。

シリア各地でシリア軍はロシア空軍の援助を得てISISの戦闘員を打破し、後退させてきました。残るのがラッカとデリゾールです。ラッカはクルドが包囲しています。

ISISは、デリゾールへの武器、戦闘員の集結を進めて来ましたがロシア軍は空から移動中の車両などを探してはシラミ潰しにつぶしてきました。管理人は爆撃映像から現地を探しましたが、広域にわたっており一つも確認できませんでした。

次は2件のツイートに付されていたシリア政府軍の支配地域とISISの支配地域を図示したものです。デリゾールの中心部を除くと回りは広い地域がISISによって抑えられています。政府軍は西側からデリゾールに近づいており、約15kmと書き込まれた残る部分を取り返せばISISは分断され、攻撃力が落ちます。

となると、このまま政府軍の攻撃が続けば、デリゾールの周辺にいたISISの兵士は多くが殺害されることになりますし、ラッカで包囲されているテロリスト戦闘員はそれこそ全滅することになるでしょう。

何千人、あるいは万に近い兵士が死ぬという段階にきています。



玉砕作戦に他ならないわけですが、ISISを背後で操る国は、西欧的なヒューマニズムの国などではありません。そんな国がデモクラシーを持ち込むとして侵略戦争を仕掛けてきたのが、「アラブの春」であり、「カラー革命」です。

米国ないしは米軍は、ロシア軍の情報公開作戦もあって、ロシア軍のシリア軍支援を阻止できませんでした。完全にやられたのです。その極致がラッカにおけるバクダーディの空爆による殺害でした。

米軍はよほど悔しいらしく、今でもバクダーディは生存しているなどと言っています。それならビデオでも流せばよいのに過去映像を使わざるをえませんからそこまでやったら笑われることを承知しています。

ただ、米軍、米国はリベンジの機会を窺っています。ロシアの公館を閉鎖したり、館員の自宅を捜索したりすることで意趣返しが止まれば、まあたいしたことはありません。

ただ、そんなヒステリー女のようなジュネーブ条約無視の発想で終わるのか、まだ見えませんが、ロシアの外務省は大人です。彼らはシリアで勝利を収めた代償であることぐらい見通しているでしょう。

Syrian army 'close to breaking' three-year ISIL siege in Deir Az Zor city http://aje.io/ard9z

RT2017/9/5
Deir ez-Zor: Why city’s liberation is so important to crush ISIS
As the Syrian Army, supported by the Russian Air Force, is on the verge of breaking the Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) siege of the city of Deir ez-Zor, RT takes a closer look at why this battle could become the beginning of the end for the terrorist group.

The Syrian governmental forces continue to successfully develop their offensive on Deir ez-Zor, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a press release Monday. Units commanded by General Suheil al-Hassan moved another 8 kilometers closer to the city over the last 24 hours and “took control over two strategically important high points.”

The Syrian Army also drove Islamic State terrorists out from their positions near the road connecting Palmyra and Deir ez-Zor, the ministry said.

Russia continues to lend air support to the Syrian forces. In their most recent 80 sorties, the Russian Air Forces destroyed “two tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles, and more than 10 all-terrain vehicles with heavy weapons mounted on them. The terrorists lost more than 70 people," the ministry said.

“Crushing Islamic State forces in the Deir ez-Zor area and lifting the blockade of the city will signify a strategic defeat for the international terrorist group in the Syrian Arab Republic,” the statement says.

Islamic State defenses on the outkirts of Deir ez-Zor are effectively collapsing, Syria's SANA news agency reported, with the Syrian Air Force successfully destroying Islamic State headquarters in the Hweika neighborhood in the city's west, killing at least nine terrorist commanders, and inflicting heavy losses on the jihadists in the villages of Ayyash and Shmeitiyeh, forcing many to flee or surrender.

According to some reports, the units of the Syrian Army advancing on the city from the west are just 10 kilometers away from a military base of the government forces located in a western neighborhood of the city.

Earlier, the governor of Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province, Mohammed Ibrahim Samra, told Reuters that the Syrian Army would arrive at the city “in 24-48 hours at the most.”
Retaking Deir ez-Zor is of great importance for the fight against Islamic State in no small part due to its strategic location. It is the largest city in eastern Syria and the seventh-largest city in the whole country.

Deir ez-Zor and the surrounding governorate of the same name are located on the Syrian border with Iraq, so, if captured by the governmental forces, they will leave Islamic State terrorists effectively trapped in the heart of Syria in their only remaining stronghold of Raqqa.

“It is the last staging point for this terrorist organization, there are no other huge cities or major towns” in the area controlled by Islamic State, Martin Jay, a Beirut-based journalist, told RT. He also said that the liberation of Deir ez-Zor would be a “turning point” in the Syrian war.

“Once the city is taken and the surrounding area is flushed out of ISIS fighters we can really start to talk about the end of the war and about a new chapter of possibly restoring peace in [Syria],” he said.

Liberating the city would also give the governmental forces strategic advantage over the terrorists as it will “provide Syrian armed forces and their allies with a really stable foothold in this part of northeast Syria,” geopolitical analyst Patrick Henningsen told RT.

The terrorists also apparently understand the strategic importance of Deir ez-Zor as they repeatedly pulled their strongest units and heavy weapons to the area, preparing for the last stand, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

“The remaining [terrorist] forces are heading there. According to our data, militants from Mosul [in Iraq] moved there and the most battle-ready units from Raqqa,” General Sergey Rudskoy, spokesman for the Russian General Staff, said in late August.

A week later, the ministry said that the extremists also moved “tanks, all-terrain vehicles with high-caliber weapons and mortars mounted on them” to the Deir ez-Zor area, adding that the actions of the jihadists apparently show that they “recognize the fact that the staging area around Deir ez-Zor is the last stronghold of the international terrorists on the Syrian soil.”

The extremists’ efforts have so far been futile as the Syrian Army supported by Russian warplanes already defeated "the most capable and best armed group of ISIL in the Euphrates River valley,” according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

In the battle that took place on August 27, 800 terrorists and dozens of vehicles and heavy weapons were destroyed by the Syrian forces actively supported by Russian aircraft, the ministry said at that time.

On September 3, the ministry said that “the last major pocket of terrorist resistance in central Syria has been eliminated” during the battle over the strategic town of Akerbat in Hama governorate.

“The operation to destroy a large group of Islamic State fighters in the eastern part of the Hama province was carried out with the active support of the Russian Air Force” that destroyed terrorist strongholds and their armored hardware as well as IS artillery positions, control points and communication outposts, the ministry said.

A day earlier, Moscow said that once the Deir ez-Zor blockade is lifted, the terrorists’ strategic defeat in Syria will be imminent. In mid-August, the Russian defense minister, Sergey Shoigu, said that the fall of Islamic State in Deir ez-Zor would signal the end of the extremist group.

“Today there are key points, including Deir ez-Zor. I would say, first of all, Deir ez-Zor,” he said at that time, adding that “this is perhaps the main point at the Euphrates, which will in many ways indicate the end of the fight against ISIS.”

This assessment was also shared by the UN special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, who said on September 1 that he expected the remaining Islamic State strongholds to fall within the next two months.

“What we are seeing is in my opinion the beginning of the end of this war… what we need to make sure is that this becomes also the beginning of peace,” the diplomat told BBC radio.
Ending years-long suffering and restoring economy

Apart from its strategic importance for the military defeat of IS, ending the siege of Deir ez-Zor would also have a significant economic effect and become a great relief for thousands of people currently trapped in the city surrounded by jihadists.

Deir ez-Zor is the capital of an oil-rich eastern Syrian province and the center of the Syrian oil industry that once served as a source of wealth to Islamic State as it captured the area and besieged the city. Depriving terrorists of these resources would be another significant blow for the extremist group.

It might also be one of the sources of revival of the Syrian economy following the end of the war. Some of the oil and gas fields in the province have already been liberated as the Syrian Army was pushing forward toward the city.

A key Euphrates city, Deir ez-Zor has been under terrorist siege for two and a half years, after being cut off from government-held areas in May 2015 during the jihadists’ offensive on Palmyra. Islamic State terrorists effectively blocked all commercial and humanitarian access into the city, trapping hundreds of thousands of civilians with little or no means to survive.

Between 93,000 and 125,000 civilians are still reportedly trapped in the city, living under appalling conditions, according to different estimates.

The surrounded city, alongside a neighboring military base and airfield, have since been supplied with food and ammunition via airdrops by Russian and Syrian transport planes and helicopters.

“May God make them victorious, and may He make ISIS humiliated. May God make us free of (ISIS) by the will of our army. I salute our army and president,” one resident told RT in August.

“We wouldn't have sat here without the Syrian Arab Army, we are sleeping while the army is protecting us,” another civilian added.

Encouraged by reports that the lifting of the blockade was days away, the people in the city celebrated the news late on September 3.

US returns Saddam Hussein’s stolen antique chessboard

The US government has returned a stolen antique chessboard that once belonged to Saddam Hussein to Iraqi officials.

The ancient chess set, stolen during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, was presented to the government of Iraq at the US Embassy in Baghdad on Saturday.

The artifact was recovered by the FBI according to a statement from the US Embassy in Iraq and turned over to Iraq’s deputy minister of culture for antiquities & heritage affairs, Qais Rasheed.

“The US is committed to helping return stolen Iraqi artifacts,” the statement added.

Further details on the theft and how the artifact came into the possession of US authorities were not given.

The former Iraqi leader was a known chess fan. The president of the World Chess Federation, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, previously described Hussein as a “supporter of chess” who understood its value.

Witnesses: Rohingya Beheaded, Burned Alive in Myanmar
TEHRAN (FNA)- Government forces in Myanmar beheaded and burned alive Rohingya Muslim civilians, including children, witnesses say, as calls grow to stop the “genocide” against the minority Muslims living in the Buddhist-majority country.

The Independent cited eyewitnesses in a report as giving “horrific accounts of violence and destruction” by Myanmarese soldiers and other unidentified armed groups.

The report cited a man named Abdul Rahman as saying that he had survived a five-hour attack on Chut Pyin Village, adding that a group of Rohingya men had been arrested and detained in a bamboo hut, which was then set on fire.

“My brother was killed, [Myanmarese soldiers] burned him with the group,” he said. “We found [my other family members] in the fields. They had marks on their bodies from bullets and some had cuts,” he added.

“My two nephews, their heads were off. One was six years old and the other was nine years old. My sister-in-law was shot with a gun,” he said.

Myanmar’s Rakhine State, where the minority Rohingya are concentrated, has been the scene of violence by the army. Before a military siege was imposed on Rakhine late last year, extremist Buddhists would attack the Muslims.

Survivors from other villages in the region have been giving similar accounts of violence carried out against the members of the minority group as the government denies access to journalists and relief workers to enter the conflict zone.

The Myanmar government has announced that over 2,600 houses have been burned down over the past week in the Rohingya-majority areas of the country’s northwest, which have been the scene of one of the deadliest outbreaks of violence against the persecuted Muslim community in decades.

“A total of 2,625 houses from Kotankauk, Myinlut and Kyikanpyin villages and two wards in Maungtaw were burned down,” the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar said on Saturday.

The Rohingya Muslims fleeing the violence to Bangladesh, however, insist that a campaign of arson and killings by the Myanmarese army aimed at forcing them out of the country is responsible for the carnage and destruction in the area.

Nearly 58,600 Rohingya Muslims have fled into neighboring Bangladesh from Myanmar, according to the UN refugee agency.

The Rohingya are denied citizenship in Myanmar and considered as illegal immigrants, despite their roots that date back centuries. Bangladesh is also growing increasingly hostile to Rohingya Muslims, more than 400,000 of whom live in the impoverished South Asian country after fleeing Myanmar since the early 1990s.

1 地震は、2017/9/3午後零時29分に観測、米地質調査所によると、地震の規模を表すマグにチュードは6.3、日本の気象庁は6.1と。(各メディア)
2 中国地震局は正式観測結果で地震は震源の深さは0キロ(?)、爆発の可能性と速報。北朝鮮が6回目の核実験可能性。(共同通信)
3 中国外務省、北朝鮮の6回目の核実験に対し「断固たる反対と強烈な非難を表明する」との声明を発表した。(共同通信)
4 北朝鮮国営朝鮮中央テレビは3日午後3時(日本時間午後3時半)、北朝鮮が水爆実験に完全成功したと発表した。(毎日)
5 中国地震局は北朝鮮付近でマグニチュード4.6の地震の発生を探知したと速報。2回目の地震波。(共同通信)

水爆の爆発の後、「岩盤崩落」による2回目の「地殻変動」があったらしいと観測されている。
水爆実験のあとで、爆発実験場の天井部分に当たる地盤が崩落し、実験場が外の大気と接触する事態に発展すれば、放射性物質の大気への放出が起きている心配がある。

NHKラジオ、北朝鮮核実験今までの10倍の規模、離島にあるモニタリングポストの測定を平常時の10分平均から緊急時の2分平均値に切り替えたとの事。今までの10倍、大気中に放出可能性大のような気がする。MP変動見れるようだったらすごいね。

8 ロシア外務省、北朝鮮の核実験に「国連安保理の決議や国際法を軽蔑するものであり、最大限の非難に値する」。(共同通信)

9 北朝鮮の核実験で「放射線監視装置での放射性物質に関する異常値は検出されていない」と菅官房長官。(共同通信)2017/9/3 18:41

お〜他国でやった放射能汚染拡散については積極的にやるんですね。
自国でおきた時は、尽く偽り報道していたのにね。

・ 日本で空間線量率が特に上がっているところはないようです。
・ SPM濃度にも異常はありません。2017/9/3 17:55

地表での実験説がありますが、それなら核爆発が衛星でキャッチされて各国が(日本は別として)自国民に放射性物質防護を呼びかけているはずです。一番汚染されるのは福島第一原発事故の例からしても実験場を中心とした地域です。そんなことはしません。
いたずらに脅えることは止めましょう。

Expert: North Korean Nuclear Test Poses No Threat to Russian Far East
TEHRAN (FNA)- A Russian meteorologist said the nuclear test reportedly carried out by North Korea on Sunday morning poses no threat to Russia’s Far Eastern Primorye Territory.
Earlier in the day, officials and media in Japan and South Korea reported of unusual seismological activity recorded in North Korea. A strong, but shallow tremor was registered near the country’s nuclear test site, TASS reported.
"Considering the current wind’s direction, there is no threat to Primorye," the Russian meteorologist whose name was mentioned in the report said.
According to the Russian meteorological expert, who works in a local agency said, the radiation level is within safe limits. The information is updated every hour.
Primorye, which has an 18-km border with North Korea in its south, currently has winds blowing from the north. It is Russia’s only region that borders the Communist state.

今日の北朝鮮の核実験。
日本政府は数時間前に、わかってたぽいですね。今日の早朝、日本とトランプ大統領が異例の3回目の電話会談してたから。そういう見方をしてる米国人が、米ABCニュースで語ってた。

米国は軍事偵察衛星で監視していますから、ミサイル発射も核実験の準備も分かっています。ミサイル発射では着弾地点に航行警戒情報が国際機関を通じて流れますからそれで確実に分かります。日本政府が情報を出さないだけです。

「北朝鮮は通常の通告プロトコルに則り,飛翔体発射実験の15日前に海域担当のIMO国際海事機関及び空域担当のICAO国際民間航空機関にそれぞれ通告。」
 ↓
国民に 報告・情報発信 してはいけない理由 が あるのか?
海上保安庁・海域関係者(漁船・商船等)は 知っていたのか?

自衛隊機が3機もエアー・ダストサンプリングに飛んだといいます。9/3夜にはもう帰還して結果も出ているはず。水素爆弾の爆発に由来する放射性物質が見つかっていれば、鬼の首を取ったように発表するのでしょうが、まだそれがありません。いつも、捕らえてみれば我が子なりのはずです。空には福島第一原発由来の放射性物質が充満していますから、識別は難しいでしょう。

防衛省 大気中のちり採取
北朝鮮の核実験を受けて、防衛省は自衛隊機で日本上空の大気中のちりを採取した。放射性物質の有無を専門機関が分析している。
防衛省は3日午後、航空自衛隊の三沢、築城、小松の各基地から自衛隊機を飛ばし、1時間半前後、大気中のちりを採取した。
放射性物質が含まれているかを調べるため、ちりは千葉市の専門機関に送られ、分析が行われている。
一方、原子力規制庁によると、全国308カ所にある空間中の放射線量を測定するモニタリングポストの値に、これまでのところ、変化は見られていない。

<北朝鮮核実験>安倍「差し迫った新たな段階の脅威だ」って、言う事がアホの証明!
⇒原爆持ってしまったら『核爆発実験』は通常ルーティン業務である事を知らない!
核保有国は半減期の確認調整に爆発事件する必要がある。脅威でも何でもない!

※  今後の行方‏ @way_of_tomorrow 氏の2017/9/3のツイート
北朝鮮核実験で放射線量に異常なし=は、当たり前! ⇒日本中の空は、毎日、福島原発から高濃度の放射性物質で汚染されているので、 少々の放射能がチリが飛来しても数値が増えない! 沖縄空港南1Kmでも0.5μSv/hが日本の汚染の惨状!

北朝鮮への制裁強化、菅官房長官「原油禁輸も選択肢」(ロイター)http://jp.reuters.com/article/japan-northkorea-idJPKCN1BE0CD?il=0
選択肢も何も、日本は北朝鮮に原油を輸出する立場にはないのだから、こんな台詞はただの「威勢のいいポーズ」「国内向けアピール」でしかない。メディアは危機の演出に荷担している。

S. Korea, U.S. discuss deploying aircraft carrier, strategic bombers to Korean Peninsula - Seoul
The ministry also said that it was planning construction of additional facilities at the existing launch site of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), a US anti-ballistic missile defense system which is intended to shoot down short- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles.
Seoul will install an additional four THAAD launchers, the ministry added.

北朝鮮の裏でしれっとアメリカが核実験を行っていることは、まるで報道されません。こういう事実を知ると、モノの見え方が変わりますね。

【こんな事実も】アメリカ・ネバダ州で8月8日に新たに核爆弾の実験。1回目の実験は数ヶ月前に

北朝鮮を全く擁護するつもりはない前提の話ですが…核兵器を大量に保有しさらに小型化の研究もし国連の核兵器禁止条約にも反対し核兵器をぜんぜん廃絶するつもりもない国に核兵器を持つなと言われてハイわかりましたと言う国あると思いますか?
