NATO Weapons Found in Syria Suggest Preparation for Chemical Attack – Ex-General

The discovery of gear meant for protection against chemical weapons was part of a vast stock of NATO weapons found Monday by the Syrian military and members of the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation in territory recently freed from militants.

Commenting on Monday's weapons discovery, which included gas masks and other equipment, in addition to heavy weapons, retired Lebanese Brigadier General Amin Hteit warned that the chemical protection equipment pointed to a possible preparation for another false-flag attack involving the use of chemical weapons.

"The warehouse find includes a great deal of equipment associated with chemical attacks," the former officer said, speaking to Sputnik.

"This means that an incident involving a chemical attack was prepared by NATO countries, with the militants given everything they needed to accomplish it. NATO countries, first and foremost the United States, organize such provocations to allow them to further blame the Syrian government," Hteit added.

Hteit stressed that apart from the chemical protection equipment, the Homs find was "another piece of evidence" regarding the "NATO countries' supply of weapons to the terrorists."

"The American and French [armies] are illegally based on Syrian territory. NATO was founded as a defensive bloc, but has now turned into an aggressor organization," the ex-officer noted.

Russian Military Finds Syrian Militants' Depots With NATO Weapons

On Monday, a Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation representative, Andrei Nekipelov, reported the discovery of a large cache of weapons and equipment, including US-made Tow-2 anti-tank missiles, machine guns, explosives, gas masks and other gear in the settlement of al-Zaafaraniyah in western province of Homs.

Prior to the latest weapons find, Syrian government troops had repeatedly reported finding large quantities of NATO and Israeli-made weaponry in territories cleared of Islamist militants, including Daesh* (ISIS). NATO and Tel Aviv have generally refrained from commenting on these discoveries, but have publicly supported what they call a "moderate" armed Syrian opposition since the start of the 2011 civil war.

A SANA reporter confirmed Tuesday that the military's operation to clear the Homs countryside of illegal arms caches would continue until all weapons there are found, allowing locals to return to the area. The northern Homs countryside was declared free of terrorists last week, after the last of the militants and members of their families were evacuated to the country's north.

‘Iran, Iran, Iran’: In twitter rant, Bibi cheers Pompeo's ultimatum to Tehran
Whoever runs Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Twitter account was evidently delighted with the US’s latest ultimatum to Iran, publishing an emotional eight-tweet-long rant to prove it.

Presented by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday, Washington’s ultimatum to the Iranian government and lists 12 demands which essentially include full disarmament and self-isolation under the pains of harshest-ever economic sanctions. The leader of Israel was apparently very happy with what he heard.

“If you asked most of the governments and most of the leaders in the Middle East: What is the principle barrier to peace? What is the greatest threat to our security? They would say three things: Iran, Iran, and Iran,” he said on Twitter.

Netanyahu’s single-minded approach to Iran has been well-documented. In his view, Tehran has single-handedly prevented Israel from negotiating peace with Palestinians, armed salafist groups in Syria and Yemen, and is pretty much responsible for everything bad that happens in the Middle East.

As such, the Israeli PM was eager to praise Pompeo for his latest public dressing-down of Tehran. The American position of “no enrichment,” “tough sanctions” and “get out of Syria,” Netanyahu tweeted, will prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons and will stop Tehran as it tries to fund its “conquest” of the Middle East.

“Thank you, America. This is the right policy,” he tweeted, adding that total isolation and economic destruction of Iran is the “only policy” that could guarantee the security and peace in the region.

Netanyahu also made reference to his recent televised address from Tel Aviv, where he accused Iran of having lied about its nuclear program, thus invalidating the 2015 Iran deal. As part of the presentation, he showed slides and shelves of “100,000 secret files,” which he said proved Iran had been running a secret nuclear weapons program all along.

“If Iran wanted to seek peaceful nuclear energy, Iran would need not a single centrifuge. Iran doesn’t need centrifuges for enrichment. If Iran wanted to pursue a peaceful nuclear program, Iran would not hide its secret archives for making nuclear weapons,” another tweet said.

Netanyahu ended the thread by asserting twice more − in case the message had not been made clear − that US policy on Iran was “correct” and that Iran was up to no good, referring again to Israel’s supposed expose of Iran’s misdeeds, which Tehran dismissed at the time as a “propaganda show.”

The responses to the prime minister’s twitter tirade were unsurprisingly varied. While some users thanked him for making Israel safe, others recalled how two decades ago Netanyahu was trying to convince the world that it was “Iraq, Iraq, Iraq” that posed the greatest threat to the region with its drive to develop nuclear weapons − and most will remember how that turned out.

Pence: North Korea 'Will Only End Like the Libya Model Ended if Kim Jong Un Doesn’t Make a Deal'

Vice President Mike Pence gave a stark warning to North Korea on Monday, drawing parallels to the denuclearization process in Libya if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un refuses make a deal with the U.S.

During an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum, Pence said that past administrations have been “played” by North Korea, and he stressed that if the planned summit between Kim and President Donald Trump is canceled, the U.S. will remain tough on North Korea to force it to give up its nuclear weapons.

“It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong Un to think he could play Donald Trump,” Pence said, adding that if talks between the two nations aren't productive, there's no doubt Trump will walk away from the negotiating table. “But we hope for better. We really hope that Kim Jong Un will seize the opportunity to dismantle his nuclear weapons program, and do so by peaceable means.”

Pence's remarks come as North Korean leaders canceled talks with South Korea in response to routine U.S.-South Korean joint military exercises on the peninsula. The Kim regime has called the summit into question in recent days, bristling as the Trump administration's repeated demands that it give up its nuclear weapons.

Pence then went on to talk about national security adviser John Bolton's recent comments that the U.S. could take the route used in Libya to force the regime there to denuclearize.

In that model, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi struck a deal with the U.S. to get rid of his country's nuclear weapons, only to be forced out of power and executed by mobs in the street eight years later, in 2011.

The president seemed to walk back Bolton's remarks on Monday, saying the Libyan model isn't a path the U.S. will follow in negotiations with North Korea and assuring Kim that he will remain in power if he cooperates.

But Pence explained that things won't end well for the Kim regime if it decides to reject U.S. attempts at a peaceful resolution to the issue.

“There was some talk about the Libya model last week and, as the president made clear, this will only end like the Libya model ended if Kim Jong Un doesn’t make a deal,” he said.

“Some people saw that as a threat,” MacCallum responded.

“I think it’s more of a fact,” Pence shot back.

But regardless of the tense rhetoric being exchanged by both nations, Trump administration officials are no doubt scrambling to salvage the plans for the summit to bring Kim to the table in hopes for peace.

Pompeo's 12 Demands For Iran Read More Like A Declaration Of War Than A Path To Peace
By Joseph TrevithickMay 21, 2018

The Secretary of State said the United States would halt these plans if Iran met its demands, which are as follows:

"First, Iran must declare to the IAEA a full account of the prior military dimensions of its nuclear program, and permanently and verifiably abandon such work in perpetuity."
"Second, Iran must stop uranium enrichment and never pursue plutonium reprocessing. This includes closing its heavy water reactor."
"Third, Iran must also provide the IAEA with unqualified access to all sites throughout the entire country."
"Iran must end its proliferation of ballistic missiles and halt further launching or development of nuclear-capable missile systems."
"Iran must release all U.S. citizens, as well as citizens of our partners and allies, each of them detained on spurious charges."
"Iran must end support to Middle East terrorist groups, including Lebanese Hizballah [Hezbollah], Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad."
"Iran must respect the sovereignty of the Iraqi Government and permit the disarming, demobilization, and reintegration of Shia militias."
"Iran must also end its military support for the Houthi militia and work towards a peaceful political settlement in Yemen."
"Iran must withdraw all forces under Iranian command throughout the entirety of Syria."
"Iran, too, must end support for the Taliban and other terrorists in Afghanistan and the region, and cease harboring senior Al Qaida leaders."
"Iran, too, must end the IRG [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] Qods Force's [Quds Force's] support for terrorists and militant partners around the world."
"And too, Iran must end its threatening behavior against its neighbors – many of whom are U.S. allies. This certainly includes its threats to destroy Israel, and its firing of missiles into Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. It also includes threats to international shipping and destructive – and destructive cyberattacks."

10 イランはアフガニスタンその他のタリバンその他のテロリストの支援を止めろ、アルカエダをかくまうの止めろ。
11 イランはIRGCによるテロリストと同盟戦闘員に対する支援を止めろ。
12 イランは近隣国に対する威嚇行動を止めろ。イスラエルを破壊するとの威嚇、サウジ、UAEに対するミサイルの発射、国際運送、破壊的なサイバーアタックの威嚇を含む。

ざっと見ると、米国は 4 イランのミサイル開発に対する警戒が強いことが分かります。これは今回もそうですが、イランは潜在的に核開発の能力を有しており、戦争状態に近づけばイランが短期間で核を開発してミサイルに搭載できるようになることを懸念していること、核開発まで行かなくても、サウジ、UAEがイランのミサイルを極度に恐れていることが背景にあるものと見られます。

ベネズエラ マドゥロが選挙で勝利





Nicolas Maduro Re-elected Venezuelan President
TEHRAN (FNA)- Nicolas Maduro has been declared the winner of Sunday’s presidential election, which saw a 46.1 percent turnout, according to Venezuela’s electoral council, after the opposition branded the vote a fraud and called for a boycott.

With 92.6 percent of the vote counted, Maduro has won presidential election with 5,823,728 of the votes, according to National Electoral Council chief Tibisay Lucena. Henri Falcon of the Progressive Advance party, obtained 1,820,552 votes, while the independent candidate Javier Bertucci won 925,042 votes, World News reported.

The ballots were recorded electronically, making the voting quick and easy. The presence of the government troops around the polling stations had also ensured safety for the voters. Some 150 international observers from 30 countries and international organizations were present in the Latin American country to monitor the process.

“How much have they underestimated our revolutionary people, and how much have they underestimated me... and here we are, victorious,” Maduro told his supporters gathered outside his Miraflores presidential palace in downtown Caracas, celebrating his re-election with fireworks.

“The whole of Venezuela has triumphed! Democracy has triumphed! Peace has triumphed! Constitutionality has triumphed [These were] elections that were constitutional, legitimate and legal,” he said, adding that “we have a President of the people! A working president!”.

The President also called on the defeated challengers to join him for a dialog and negotiations about the future of the country, saying that “permanent dialog” is needed with the entire opposition so the country could set aside political disputes.

However, before the official results were announced, Falcon said he would not recognize the vote for what he called irregularities, including widespread vote buying in favor of Maduro.

Several of Venezuela’s Latin American neighbors as well as the European Union also joined voices with Maduro’s challenger and said they would not recognize the results of the election. They alleged that the conditions did not exist for the election to be free and fair.

The United States also said it would not recognize the election and would actively consider oil sanctions on the country.

The US Treasury on Friday slapped sanctions against the head of the Venezuelan socialist party, Diosdado Cabello, and his wife, Marleny Josefina Contreras, who heads the country’s tourism institute, and his brother, Jose David.

Venezuela on Saturday accused the United States of using new sanctions against its government’s top officials to sabotage the presidential election on Sunday.

Caracas on Saturday described the new sanctions as part of “a systematic campaign of aggression” by the administration of US President Donald Trump, insisting that Washington move had no legal basis.

“It’s not surprising that on the eve of a new vote, when the Venezuelan people will come out to defend their democracy against the imperialist aggressions that try and derail it, once again the US regime tries to sabotage the elections,” the government said in a statement.

The elections were initially scheduled for December, then changed to April, then delayed again to May 2018.

Pull out of Syria? Bare all to IAEA? Why 12-point US list for Tehran is ‘ultimatum’ meant to fail
The US has laid out 12 demands for Iran that it says Tehran must meet for a new nuclear deal. Problem is, telling Iranian troops out of Syria and dictating what nuclear watchdog inspects doesn’t sound like a real roadmap for peace

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made the White House’s stance crystal clear Monday, calling the nuclear agreement between Tehran and six world powers a “loser.” President Donald Trump has already pulled the US out of the landmark deal earlier this month. A new deal should be drawn up, Pompeo asserted, while laying out 12 “basic requirements.” Many of those were predictable, such as requiring Tehran to “stop enrichment of uranium and never preprocess plutonium” – because obviously, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is not good enough to hold Iran to its word.

One major point used as a bargaining chip is, however, entirely unrelated to the Iranian nuclear program. It reads: “Iran must withdraw all forces under Iranian command from Syria.”

The demand conveniently ignores the fact that Iranian troops were invited by the Syrian government and have been helping fight Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on the ground – while the US troops, stuck in Syria indefinitely, were not. “Nobody invited them there,” Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya said in February, reminding the world that their presence was illegal. It’s not hard to guess which forces the Syrian government wants to keep and which it wants to be gone, as it battles the remaining pockets of Islamist militants.

Another US demand is that Iran must “respect the sovereignty of the Iraq government and permit the disarming, demobilization, and reintegration of Shia militias.” Just as in Syria, Iranian troops are in Iraq with the approval of Baghdad, and the country’s Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) even receive funding and training from Iran and have been declared part of Iraq’s security apparatus. So why would Iranian troops suddenly need to disband and leave?

Then there’s the fact that the US seems to believe it’s perfectly fine to try to establish a new deal which abides by 12 demands designed by Washington – despite Washington being the sole party to withdraw from the original deal. The other signatories – the UK, France, Germany, China, and Russia – are still committed to the 2015 JCPOA.

Although the IAEA, tasked with inspecting Iran’s compliance under the deal, has repeatedly stated that Tehran is implementing its commitments, the US apparently distrusts international watchdog’s expertise. That’s according to the list of demands saying how the Iranian nuclear program should be inspected.

“First, Iran must declare to the IAEA a full account of the prior military dimensions of its nuclear program, and permanently and verifiably abandon such work in perpetuity. Second, Iran must stop enrichment and never pursue plutonium reprocessing. This includes closing its heavy water reactor. Third, Iran must also provide the IAEA with unqualified access to all sites throughout the entire country,”boomed Pompeo, speaking Monday at the Heritage Foundation, a right-wing Washington think tank.

One may almost forget the IAEA is not a lapdog of Washington, but an international body. Why the US now gets to decide the scope and methods of its work is unclear.

Of course, there is also a whole array of demands to scale back Iranian military programs and alleged support of militant groups. US accuses Iran of sponsoring terrorism, including by helping the Palestinian group Hamas and even, allegedly, Taliban and Al-Qaeda. That these groups are overwhelmingly Sunni while the Iranian government in Shia is overlooked, by accident or deliberately.

The mentioned “threatening behavior against its neighbors,” the “firing of missiles” and “destructive cyberattacks” strangely mirror Washington’s own actions in the region, including some that have been aimed against Iran.

Crucially, there’s little doubt that the Trump administration understands Iran would outright reject most, if not all, of the listed demands, which brings the purpose of the entire list into question.

“Secretary Pompeo’s speech has not demonstrated how walking away from the JCPOA has made or will make the region safer from the threat of nuclear proliferation, or how it puts us in a better position to influence Iran’s conduct in areas outside the scope of JCPOA. There is no alternative to the JCPOA,” EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said Monday commenting on Pompeo’s list. Others said the US list was outright destined to fail – on purpose.

“I think ultimatum is the right word… When you deliver an ultimatum, its purpose is to have it rejected,” former US diplomat Jim Jatras told RT. “There are people in the Trump administration, who want the regime change in Iran – it’s that simple, and they want Iran to reject their terms.”

Jatras believes it’s too early to tell at this stage if US threats against Iran are merely “noise” and pressure tactics like the one used against North Korea, but he says even that pressure could backfire and serve as a positive effect for Tehran by “forcing the Europeans to pull even farther away from the US than they have.” The worst case scenario, he says, is Washington proceeding with a unilateral military action aimed at regime change.

“As you can imagine, Iran will not agree to any of Washington’s demands,” Hamed Mousavi, professor of political science at the University of Tehran, told RT. “It is Iran that should be asking the US why it has not fulfilled its side of the agreement when Iran has fully complied with its obligations under the nuclear deal. Why should Iran negotiate with an administration that is not abiding by an international agreement that is the result of years of intense diplomacy?”

Accident Reported in Romanian Nuclear Plant, Reactor Shut Down

Accident Reported in Romanian Nuclear Plant, Reactor Shut Down
Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila on Thursday instructed a monitoring service to carry out an investigation into two incidents at the Cernavoda nuclear power plant (NPP) that occurred in recent days, local media reported on Thursday.

"There is no connection between reducing Unit 2's capacity on March 25 and today's automatic disconnection," Nuclearelectrica said in a statement.

"S.N. Nuclearelectrica SA ("SNN") announces that Cernavoda NPP Unit 2 was disconnected automatically from SEN during the morning of March 29, 2018, following a dysfunction in the electrical process system in the older part of the power plant," the press release read.

The company stressed that the disconnection of the reactor from the energy system posed no risks to nuclear safety.

"The specialists are investigating the cause and will make the necessary repair work, in compliance with the procedures specific to the nuclear industry for such situations. There is no connection between the power reduction of Unit 2 on March 25, 2018 and the automated disconnection of the reactor today, March 29, 2018," the press release said.

Earlier, Nuclearelectrica reported that the first Cernavoda power unit was shut down at 09:20 am on March 25, 2018. The second power unit of the nuclear power plant reduced power to 55% (about 300 MW).

On March 26, the company reported that its second unit reactor was back at full power after it was stopped for a pump engine part replacement.

The accident had no impact on the personnel, the general public or the environment, the company added.

Romania's state-owned nuclear power producer Nuclearelectrica has two 706 megawatt reactors at Cernavoda in southeastern Romania. It is the first and only nuclear power plant in Romania, and the largest electricity supplier in the country.

Convoy of Death: Nuclear Weapon Transport Accidents Hit Record Highs in the UK

Convoy of Death: Nuclear Weapon Transport Accidents Hit Record Highs in the UK
Safety issues compromizing nuclear bomb convoys regularly travelling throughout the UK have risen to record highs, according to Ministry of Defence (MoD) figures.

The total number of incidents logged by officials in 2017 was 44, the most since 2008, and brings the total number of recorded incidents in the last decade to 179.

While specific details of what happened in each case have not been released, previous freedom of information act requests have shown common incidents include equipment failures, collisions and breakdowns. Some convoys have even been delayed or diverted by poor weather conditions, traffic accidents and protests − and on at least one occasion "dogs loose on the carriageway".

The convoys, which typically comprise 20 or more military vehicles, transport Trident nuclear warheads at least six times annually between the Royal Naval Armaments Depot at Long Loch's Coulport Loch near Glasgow and the bomb factory at Burghfield in Berkshire, where they're maintained.

Along the way, they travel close to major UK population centers such as Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester and Newcastle − and while they're meant to be conducted in strict secrecy, members of the public often photograph and film their movements, sharing the content on social media. Nonetheless, a 2016 YouGov poll indicated 64 percent of British adults are unaware of the convoys − and 47 per cent of respondents said they were ‘concerned'.

Major Hazards

Such fears may be well-founded. The detonation of a single 100-kiloton Trident warhead would cause a blast eight times more powerful than the one which infamously devastated Hiroshima, Japan in 1945 and killed at least 100,000. Anyone within five kilometres would die instantly.

While the MoD maintains no such convoy has ever posed a radiation hazard to either the public or environment, Nukewatch − an organization documenting the passage of nuclear convoys across the country − states the potential for calamity is high.

For instance, in the event of a serious accident the highly volatile ‘conventional' explosive could be set off, causing accompanying warheads to ‘jet' plutonium. The MoD itself estimates in such a situation a circle some 600-yards in radius would be affected by such a blast, and fragments of explosives − and alpha emitting plutonium and uranium particles down wind could be dispersed for miles. If ingested, these particles can cause cancer.

If such an incident occurred close to or in a heavily populated area, it would be extremely difficult if not impossible to effectively evacuate the vicinity before potentially lethal material spread. There is no MoD guidance in the public domain on dealing with such an issue − or whether and how traffic would be quarantined or locked in a contaminated zone.

In August 2017, Nukewatch published Unready Scotland, based primarily on a survey of local authorities situated on routes taken by the warhead convoys. It found not one of the councils surveyed had ever conducted risk assessments, and none informed their constituents about nuclear warhead traffic in the area. Moreover, they found no evidence the Scottish Government had taken any active step to ensure compliance with the 2004 Civil Contingencies Act, which theoretically governs the response of local authorities to any threat to public safety.

The report also examined in detail the challenging practicalities posed to civil authorities in the event of a serious incident, and concludes there's no evidence these authorities would be able to cope.

"The MOD make clear their prime concern would be to secure the weapons themselves, while Category 1 Responders would have to manage accurate and prompt public information (including countering false stories spreading on social media), complex evacuations in highly populated areas, as well as making arrangements for people to take shelter in their homes. This would all be on a scale that has not been tested in practice, and the responses reported make it clear in this context bland assurances all is in hand are impossible to accept," Unready Scotland concluded.

Trident Secrecy

The MoD's refusal to acknowledge the risk posed by transporting nuclear weapons on open roads, and failure to disclose the precise nature of the accidents such vehicles became embroiled in over the course of 2017 may nonetheless be unsurprising given ever-increasing levels of secrecy around Trident, and its safety.

For instance, annual reports from the MoD's internal watchdog, the Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator (DNSR), had repeatedly warned of the dangers blighting the project, including spending reductions, engineer shortages shortages and accidents, since their institution in 2006 − but in 2017, the Ministry opted to classify them, on the basis of "national security"

"Nuclear safety has not been compromised. No further detail or comment will be made on those elements redacted," the MoD stated.

This has prompted a tirade of accusations that it is trying to hide "embarrassing" concerns about nuclear safety, and avoid public scrutiny.

But the latest concerns for 2015 and 2016 have been concealed by the MoD. The entire text of the last two DNSR annual summaries has been redacted from wider reports published by Defence Safety Authority because they "would or would likely impact national security."

Bypassing US sanctions, countering China: Why Modi's 'no agenda' meeting with Putin is anything but
Narendra Modi arrives in Sochi for an "agenda-less" meeting with Vladimir Putin, but there won't be time for chit-chat – the two men must save key arms deals left up in the air by US sanctions, and find common ground on China.

"This is a very different kind of meeting. Normally, we have a system of annual bilateral summits that are very structured, where you negotiate and you come out with documents, contracts and joint statements," said Pankaj Saran, India's ambassador to Moscow, ahead of his prime minister's arrival in the Black Sea resort on Monday afternoon.

Instead, the one-day visit will provide a chance for the two leaders to develop "personal chemistry, build up their relationship" and "discuss issues important to their own countries," said Saran. The trip was planned at short notice after Putin was re-elected for a fourth term in March, and will be conducted without honor guards, official dinners or other formalities.

'US won't dictate which weapons we can buy'

The issue that is equally important to both is the fate of Russia's agreed weapons exports to India, estimated to be worth $12 billion. Ever since India declared independence, Moscow has sold far more arms to New Delhi than any other state.

But a major obstacle has risen in the shape of CAATSA, the anti-Russia, Iran and North Korea legislation passed by Congress last year. It not only penalizes Moscow's own strategic industries, but is liable to sanction third-country companies working with Russian entities on the list, including Russia's official arms trader Rosoboronexport.

On Saturday, US official Tina Kaidanow, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs, who is herself traveling to India for talks later this month, warned New Delhi "to evaluate any potential large defense purchase from Russia seriously," saying it must not "enable" Russia's "malign behavior."

So far, India has held steady in the face of this pressure, which Moscow views as an underhanded attempt to muscle into the largest arms import market in the world.

"We are not going to allow our defense requirement to be dictated by any other country. We have conveyed this to the Capitol Hill. Russia has been a reliable and trusted partner," said a senior Indian official, quoted by multiple local media outlets last week.

In a tweet sent out prior to his visit, Modi also confirmed that he would seek to "strengthen the special and privileged strategic partnership between India and Russia."

However, it would be complacent to exclusively blame Washington for a slide in that partnership, which has seen Russia's share of arms imports fall from 79 percent between 2008-2012 to 62 percent in 2013-2017, according to think tank SIPRI.

Even before Modi was elected in 2014, India began a geopolitical shift closer to Washington, while its arms industry has made a deliberate move to lessen its reliance on Russian companies, which Indian officials say experience difficulties with deadlines, cost overruns, and spare-parts supplies.

While undisputed Russian hits such as the S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft systems are still in demand – India is intent on buying five at a cost approaching $6 billion – more speculative projects have run into trouble.

The nadir has been India's public decision just last month to exit the Sukhoi/HAL Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) project, mooted for over a decade. New Delhi is apparently dissatisfied with both the timelines and the characteristics of what would have been a groundbreaking, jointly produced jet, and a new model for Russia's post-Soviet aerospace industry.

It is likely that Modi and Putin will eventually feel comfortable enough to broach the topic during their face-to-face meeting, which is expected to last between four and six hours.

"My own experience has been that it takes time for us to take a final decision, when it comes to frontline fighter or attack aircraft," prominent Indian diplomat-turned-expert Gopalaswami Parthasarathy told RT. "I am sure that we can overcome any mutual doubts we may have on the Russian FGFA, once we can better match what we need with what is available. Finally, the entire issue of spares and transfer of technology remains crucial for defense supplies."
India to woo Russia away from China?

On nuclear, the relationship is similarly fruitful, if not so politicized. Indian representatives announced that the two leaders would discuss further cooperation in this area, with Russia completing reactors 3 and 4 of Kudankulam, India's largest nuclear power station, which is being constructed in the south of the country. Moscow will vie to complete reactors 5 and 6 by the start of the next decade, but nothing has been finalized, and the success of the project could determine the path of the country's energy industry – a relevant concern for a rapidly growing economy, and a population that is expected to overtake China's within five years.

Perhaps even more intriguing is the prospect of trilateral nuclear development with Bangladesh, to be piloted at the $13-billion Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant, where Russian engineers will supply the tech, and the Indian side will provide some of the financing, management and influence.

Modi's informal one-to-one summits, which he has made his preferred form of international diplomacy, aren't about the nitty gritty of construction deals, but rather big ideas – of which India's place in the world remains central to the country's identity. And China remains the measuring stick.

"India sees China as a rival in a competition for regional leadership," Alexey Kuprianov, a senior research fellow at Institute of World Economy and International Relations, told RT.

Between the two countries ,there are plenty of indirect tensions. Beijing's "One Belt One Road Project" – a reimagining of the silk road backed up by massive infrastructure and industrial investment – is not only a bid for Asian supremacy and a metaphorical encroachment into its backyard, but actually goes through a disputed territory between India and arch-nemesis Pakistan, which has enjoyed closer ties with China in the past few years.

There is also a direct flashpoint – Doklam is a remote Tibetan area through which the undefined Sino-Indian border passes, but it captured headlines in both countries for over two months last summer, after a stand-off and series of clashes between border guards on both sides.

New Delhi is alarmed that Russia, the other great power in the immediate vicinity, is drifting noticeably closer to China, with whom it has a tighter fit, not just economically but geopolitically too, with both countries seeing themselves as a counterweight to US hegemony.

Modi's task will be to reassure Putin that India will not become a prong of a Western-directed alliance (talk of a potential regional partnership between United States, Japan, Australia and India was restarted last year) and also to show that its economic opportunities are as attractive as those offered by China. Perhaps sweetening the deal by offering Moscow a large new showpiece project, like the Russian-backed pipeline from Iran to India that was announced at the end of last year.

Dubai Firm Rattles Mideast Dealmaking With Alleged Misused Funds
It’s troubling for any asset manager, but this dispute has the potential to damage a region.

Allegations that one of the biggest and oldest private equity firms in the Middle East misused client money -- including from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Bank -- have sent shock waves through the ranks of local dealmakers. The firm, Dubai’s Abraaj Group, has shaken up its top ranks, cut dozens of jobs and hired outside help to probe the matter and patch up relations with clients, but the fallout may just start to ripple through.

Since the allegations surfaced in February, private equity deals and fundraising in the region, which had already been slowing, have come to a halt, according to interviews with about a dozen financial industry executives. The issue has hurt the region’s reputation and threatens to bring back concerns about a lack of transparency that had kept some investors away, they said, asking for anonymity because the matter is sensitive.

“The true impact of the Abraaj situation is one of reputational capital,” said Karim A. Souaid, managing partner of Growthgate Capital, a private investment firm operating in the region. It “will impact the appetite of fund investors to commit, and the capabilities of fund managers to raise capital. "

LINUXパソコンはこう使う これを読めばメリットが分かる "当ブログ特薦記事"




ただし、管理人の場合は、リアルタイム線量率測定表示システムの中枢となるパソコンに使うのが目的ですから、LINUX OSにWINEと呼ばれるWindows エミュレーターを載せて、そこでShareXやGC10モニターを動かすのが目的です。









ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Bay Trail
ディスク 5.1GB

ubuntu 14.04 LTS は、長期サポート版ですが、4年前にリリースされているんですね。




USBハブが使えない。何か設定が必要? WifiとBluetoothとUSB、3通りを使わないとダメ? これはいかん。関連機器でカネがかかりすぎる。本体35ドルでも売れないはずだ。

UBUNTU 精神や活動は大変立派だと思います。ですがソフトはハードが伴わなければ力を発揮できません。5年前に買って使い続け、今は予備として置いてあるWindowsパソコンは、LINUXをインストールして使うことも考えていましたが、複雑な操作、作業を行うには面倒が多いようなので見送りです。




Linuxを単独で使う方法としてはWindows PC(X86)の内臓ハードデスク、USBメモリ、USBハードディスク、SDカードにLinuxをインストールして使用する方法の他にラズベリーパイ(シングルボードコンピュータ)を別途用意しUSBメモリ、USBハードディスク、SDカード等にインストールして使用する方法があります。





windows proとLinux、macはリモートディスクトップソフトを使用することにより現在使用中のPCのモニター、キーボード、マウスで全ての操作が可能になりますのでPCごとにモニタやキーボード、マウスを購入する必要はありません。





















使用するLinuxはUbuntu mateまたはRaspbianがおすすめです。
Ubuntu mateは以下のサイトよりPCに合わせて32ビットか64ビットをダウンロードして下さい。
RaspbianはRaspberry Pi Desktopをダウンロードして下さい。

ダウンロードのファイルはUbuntu mateは.isoでRaspbianは.imgですのでフリーソフトでUSBメモリに書き込めるソフトを使用して下さい。




一方、Ubuntu mateはLinuxのdesktopとして人気があり、日本語環境も含め必要なソフトがほぼインストールされております。




また、長文になり申し訳ありませんがUbuntu mateまたはRaspbianをお試しください。



あくまでもさりげなく、「Windows10の64ビットおよび32ビットまたはLINUX Ubuntu mate で動作を確認しています」などと徘徊爺がしゃべっていたらおかしいでしょうか。

konkorartさん ありがとうございます。また挑戦しますので教えてください。



CPU Centrini Duo 32ビット
プリインストールOS Windows Vista
HDD 60Gbyte
メモリ 512Mbyte--->1024Mbyteに増強
発売年度 2007年
上記よりスペックが低いとUbuntu 1604やRapsbianでは遅く感じるかもしれません。

Linuxには超軽量のOSもありますので"linux ディストリビューション 超軽量"で検索してください。
例えば https://eng-entrance.com/linux-light です。




acrobat reader DCを必要とされているようなのでGUIベースとなると思いますのでLinux版acrobat readerをインストールしてみて下さい。ただし、OSバージョン等の制限があるかもしれません。


また、LinuxOSの選択はUbuntu 1604、Debian8または9が安定しており、WindowsやMACに近い感覚で使えると思います。これより古いと情報も少なくなりますので結構面倒になります。

以前にUbuntu 9.04を使われていたのであれば、Ubuntu、Debian、Raspbianを使われたら凄く使いやすくなっていると感じると思います。





現在ではGoogle Chromeブラウザを使えば画面に出ている外国語を瞬時に日本語にしてくれますので、かなり楽になっています。

操作は簡単でGoogle Chromeブラウザに表示されている画面で右クリックをすればポップアップが表示され真ん中より下に「日本語に翻訳」がありますのでクリックすればページ丸ごと翻訳してくれます。

他のブラウザでもgoogleのサイトで検索している場合は検索結果の表示で「このページを翻訳」をクリックすれば同様の結果が得られますが使い勝手がGoogle Chromeブラウザに比べれば劣ります。







ちなみにAndroid、ios(マルチタッチや加速度センサーなどの独自UIを持ったOS)、macOS は Linuxまたはunix(Linuxが参考にしている)を参考にて作られていますので、Linuxに慣れると他のOS利用にも応用できます。














Raspbian(Raspberry pi desktop)はインストールしないでアプリのインストールが可能で日本語化もできます。









Microsoft Remote Desktopをmac、android、iosにインストールすればwindowsをリモートで操作できます。
Windowsが残念なことはProバージョンのみで home等のその他のバージョンはリモートディスクトップは使えません。
リモートディスクトップとしてVNC(Virtual Network Computing)があり、windowsで無料で使えるものはUltraVNCが
