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

Syrian Analyst: US, Israel Have to Consider Consequences of Attacking Syrian Army and Its Allies

Syrian Analyst: US, Israel Have to Consider Consequences of Attacking Syrian Army and Its Allies
TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian political analyst Steven Sahiounie believes Israeli strikes on Syria are aimed at weakening the Syrian army to ensure Tel Aviv would never be forced to give back occupied Syrian land in Golan Heights.

In an exclusive interview with FNA, the analyst said that Washington and Tel Aviv “have to make their own calculations about the repercussions of an attack on the allies of Syria; they would have to calculate their own losses after such action.”

Mr. Sahiounie also said that Saudi Arabia, as the main financier of terrorists in Syria, “faces a future of diminished power in the region” unless there is a change of policies in Riyadh.

Steven Sahiounie is an independent Syrian journalist and political analyst. He has been covering the Syrian crisis since it’s onset in 2011 and has published several articles in numerous media outlets, including Mint Press and Fort Russ News. He has also been interviewed by international news outlets such as Press TV.

FNA has conducted an interview with Steven Sahiounie about the ongoing crisis in Syria and the recent developments surrounding the issue namely the US’ plan for an independent Kurdish state on Syrian soil and the Turkish military intervention into the country.

Below you will find the full text of the interview.

Q: Since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, Saudi Arabia has been actively supporting terrorists in the country. These terrorists are now losing ground every day. What do you think would be the implications of such failure for the Saudi foreign policy?

A: Saudi Arabia has failed in their goal of overthrowing the legitimate government in Syria. I believe that the plan, structure and goals of the project were not Saudi in origin. Saudi Arabia was used by USA as the paymaster of their project to overthrow the Syrian government. Saudi Arabia played their role, because if they were to refuse to follow the direct orders of Washington, DC., their own government could be changed in 24 hours. The right to be a King in Saudi Arabia is not a natural thing: it depends entirely on the US government. Who sits on the throne in Riyadh is not up to the Saudi Royal family, and certainly not up to the Saudi citizens, who have no say, and no voice in the government. Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy: you are either the King, or related to him, or you are no one. Some inside sources have said that the Saudi officials have given up hope on their cause in Syria, because they have seen the events on the ground, as the Syrian government has consistently been recovering areas in Syria that had been under the occupation of radical Islamic terrorists. Radical Islam is a political ideology, and is not a religion or a sect.

I don’t see the Syrian crisis as a Saudi foreign policy, but as a US foreign policy, in which Saudi Arabia was forced to play their role. The terrorists and their weapons and salaries were not enough to achieve the success that US had planned for. I wouldn’t lay the blame for the failed attempt at the feet of the King of Saudi Arabia, because he played his role well, and fulfilled his obligations to Washington, DC. The failure of the project will always sit with the American government: they failed to take into account the resistance and steadfastness of the Syrian people, and their allies, in the face of international attack and occupation. I don’t think this failure in Syria will affect Saudi foreign policy: they will stay a client state of the USA, and they have no intent on restoring a relationship with Syria, or some of their Persian Gulf neighbors. The King of Saudi Arabia faces a future of diminished power in the region, and subservience to American whims and schemes, unless he could take a new path by making friends with his neighbors, and sharing peace and prosperity with his subjects and neighbors.

Q: We have seen the Israeli regime and the so-called US-led coalition targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allied forces many times. What do you think is the reason for such moves?

A: The Israeli goal in Syria is to make sure there is destruction and chaos across Syria. Israel wants to ensure they never have to give back occupied land in Syria. Israel wants to keep the Syrian military weak, or their ultimate goal would be the complete destruction of the Syrian military, which is also the US goal. By destroying the Syrian military, the US and Israel could have achieved the overthrow of the legitimate government in Syria. The Syrian government has remained strong, united and effective during 7 years of war because of the unity and loyalty of the Syrian Arab Army, and the resistance of the Syrian people, who have sent their sons, brothers, husbands and fathers to serve in the military. The US and Israel may continue to attack the Syrian Arab Army and their allies on the ground in Syria, but we expect the eventual victory in Syria. The US and Israel have to make their own calculations about the repercussions of an attack on the allies of Syria: they would have to calculate their own losses after such action.

Q: The so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have received tremendous amount of arms and support from the United States, initially with the stated aim to fight Daesh (ISIL or ISIS). But apparently, the US is now preparing the ground to establish an independent Kurdish state in Syria. What do you think the US is seeking to achieve by disintegrating Syria?

A: The US has a long history of dividing nations for the purpose of subjugation. For example: the US-NATO attack on the former Yugoslavia; the US-NATO attack on Libya; the US attack on Iraq. From the outset of the attack on Syria, which began in March 2011, experts knew that the end-goal of the USA was a divided Syria, and in fact the various maps of the proposed ‘states’ within a future Syria have been on the media for years. They have paraded these proposed maps in front of our eyes so many times; there are people who are probably convinced that Syria is already divided. The old military scheme of “Divide and Conquer” is still in use today. Cut things up: making them smaller and easier to control, subjugate and confiscate the valuable resources available. The American government found their perfect partner in the Syrian Kurds. There is a part of that community who are willing to be a traitor to their own country and citizenship, and willing to maim and kill their own neighbors for the promise of their own ‘homeland’ and substantial paychecks to achieve the goal. However, not all of the Syrian Kurdish community is part of the plan, or in support of it. By using this small community of traitors and criminals, the US military found a willing partner in their plans to cut up Syria, thus preventing a united Syria, with its original borders. This plan also dovetails into the Israeli position: to show the world that ancient people are deserving of their own homeland, newly established, from the existing lands of the Middle East. This new Kurdish homeland would legitimize the 1948 establishment of Israel, as a homeland for the Jews, who are also an ancient people. If the ‘international community’ will support this new Kurdish homeland, from original Syrian soil, this would reinforce the Israeli position that their homeland is also a legitimate claim. As we know, the goals of the USA and Israel are most times interwoven and sometimes indistinguishable.

Q: The US announcement of its plans to recognize a Kurdish state in Syria has seemingly provoked Turkish invasion on Kurdish areas. What are Turkey’s objectives in its military intervention and how do you think this recent development would affect the process of reaching peace in Syria?

A: The Turkish military has invaded Syria at Afrin. However, this is not the first time Turkey’s military has been used officially to kill and destroy in Syria. We must not forget the role of the Turkish military in the attack, invasion and occupation which resulted in the destruction of Kessab, Syria on the North West border in 2014. In fact, Kessab has still not recovered from that devastation. Turkey has suffered at the hands of Kurdish terrorists who have killed and maimed thousands in Turkey for decades. However, Turkey knows full well that Afrin is Syrian, and the Syrian military with their allies are capable of stabilizing Afrin and preventing any Kurdish terrorists attacking either Turkish citizens, or Syrian citizens. Thus, this Turkish invasion of Afrin is a subterfuge for the real intent: to cut up Syria, not in favor of the Kurdish homeland plan, but for the new Turkish district of Afrin, which the Turks have long argued would be a ‘safe-zone’ for Syrian refugees, who could then be relocated there. Also, this could be the “No-Fly-Zone” which Turkey has long campaigned for. Conceivably, the Kurds living in Afrin would then be displaced, and their homes and farms occupied by Syrian refugees who are loyal to Turkey. The Syrian refugees in Turkey, who are loyal to Turkey, are all directly connected to various terrorist groups, such as Free Syrian Army and other Al Qaeda aligned groups. Turkish history tells us of the genocide of Armenians and other Christians in 1916, and the survivors were displaced, with their homes and farms given to Turcoman settlers, originally from Central Asia. I hope that history will not repeat itself.
