ロシア下院の国防委員会議長 米国の核演習に参加した国は非核国でも報復攻撃の対象となると軍人外交団にブリーフ

ロシア下院国防委員会委員長(議長)のウラジーミル・シャモノフが恒例の年次ブリーフィングを行いました。その中で非核保有国でも米国主導の核演習に参加した国は、報復攻撃の目標になると述べています。
米軍は沖縄に核を持ち込んでいますから、米軍と合同演習を行う日本は、報復攻撃の対象になりえます。

米国とNATOは、今欧州東部で中距離ミサイルの増強を進めようとしています。中距離ミサイルは、それを探知してから着弾するまでに時間が少ないことから有効な防衛がやりづらい、誤認によって報復攻撃が始まる恐れもあり、危険な武器です。

ロシアは自国防衛のため、近隣国からミサイルが撃ち込まれれば、その発射地点だけでなく指令本部に報復攻撃を行うと述べています。これは軍事戦略上当然のことです。自国で1発か2発の被害にとどめて攻撃国にその何倍もミサイルを撃ち込む、それによって追加的なミサイル攻撃をできなくさせるためです。

ロシアの言う指令本部に対する報復攻撃は、当然米国本土を含みます。含まなければ攻撃を止められないからです。

下の記事で、ロシアの将軍を務めたウラジーミル・シャモノフ(62歳)が米国の核演習に参加した国は、報復攻撃の対象になりうると述べていますが、核演習に参加すれば核を扱うことができるようになり、一時的にでも核を持ちうることを考えれば当然です。

沖縄には核が配備されています。日本にある他の米軍基地にも核が配備されている可能性があります。万一、NATOが欧州でロシアに向けてミサイルを発射すればロシアがただちに報復する、つまり日本もロシアの核、あるいは通常爆弾で攻撃される恐れがあります。

前に北朝鮮がミサイルを発射する可能性があると日本政府が国民をだまし、対ミサイル避難訓練が行われました。まるで漫画でしたが、ある読者は小学校のドッヂボールと同じようなものと間違えていました。

ミサイル警報(管理人はそんな警報はミサイル着弾後しか出ないと思っています)が出たら身支度を整え、丈夫な靴を履いて懐中電灯を持って外に出ればいいのだと、その方は本気で考えていたようです。小型ミサイルが次々に飛んできて、まるでドッヂボールのようにそれを避けて逃げ回るというイメージが伝わってきますが、小型なものでもミサイルが飛んできて爆発すれば、次のような状況になるのです。

近くでミサイルが爆発すれば、瞬時に死ぬのです。外に出ていることは危険です。丈夫な地下室があればそこに入る。そこで運を天に祈るしかありません。



シリアでの空爆の模様を何度も載せましたが、全然見ておられないのですね。

次は、ミサイル技術を誇るイランがシリア国内へイラク上空を通ってミサイルを撃ち込んだ時の画像です。照準の右にカプセルのようなものが見えますが、これが飛翔体です。


次の画像の1分40秒ころからご覧ください。これはまだ破壊力の小さいミサイルで建物一つを破壊するにとどまっています。

今この瞬間にNATOがロシアに奇襲攻撃をかけたとします。20分後、30分後にはロシアがその報復攻撃として日本国内にある米軍基地を攻撃することは、ありうるのです。

タカをくくることなく、なんでも勉強しておきましょう。管理人は、今の米国の政権中枢、トランプ、ボルトン、ポンペオは、短慮でとても危険だと考えています。

東南海沖地震と米国が仕掛ける大規模な戦争の確率をこの先2年に関して言えば、管理人は後者のほうが確率が大きいと考えています。

Top Russian MP compares Trump to Hitler, warns of new war

Two years of Donald Trump’s presidency has brought the international situation back to the moment when Hitler came to power, according to three-star Russian General Vladimir Shamanov.

Speaking at a briefing for foreign military attaches, Shamanov recalled that Hitler had begun preparing Germany for war just two years after coming to power. “Trump has been at the helm for two years, and we see the parallels,” he said.

The general, who is head of the lower house’s Committee on Defense, also warned non-nuclear nations that participation in US-led nuclear drills could make them the target of a retaliatory strike by Russia in the event of conflict.

“Along with regular weapons, Americans could stock you with nuclear ones,” he explained. “We have to take it into account and you could become our priority strike targets, you have to be aware of it.”


The “eagerness” of some European countries to deploy military assets on their territories “raises eyebrows,” Shamanov added.

Military attaches from 90 countries attended the annual briefing in the lower house of Russia’s parliament, which the general noted was a higher attendance than usual. However, the US delegation didn’t respond to an invitation “for the first time in many years,” he added.

Paper Reveals US, France's Role in Unrests in Algeria

またJNN/TBS の海外ニュースです。この件は、下のFARSNEWSの記事のように反大統領の動きを米国のインテリジェンス機関が采配しているとの説があります。

アルジェリア、大統領が5期目出馬取りやめ
アルジェリアのブーテフリカ大統領が大規模な抗議行動を受ける形で大統領選への出馬を取りやめました。ただ同時に大統領選の延期も発表されています。
 ロイター通信などによりますと、アルジェリアの大統領府はブーテフリカ大統領が当選すれば5期目となる大統領選挙に出馬しないと発表しました。同時に来月18日に予定されていた大統領選挙自体の延期も発表されましたが、新たな日程は設定されていません。
 今年82歳になるブーテフリカ大統領は2013年に脳梗塞を患って以来、大統領の職務を遂行できるかどうか疑問視されてきました。軍や治安機関が実権を握っていると指摘されるアルジェリアで、健康不安のあるブーテフリカ大統領は象徴的な大統領と見られてきましたが、出馬が発表されるとアルジェリア各地で抗議行動が起き、先週金曜日にも首都アルジェなどでこれまでで最大規模のデモが行われました。
 10日、ブーテフリカ大統領は入院先のスイスから帰国しましたが、11日には1000人を超える判事がもし大統領が出馬するなら選挙の監督を拒否するとの声明を出すなど、反発は収まっていませんでした。(12日04:16) JNN/TBS

Paper Reveals US, France's Role in Unrests in Algeria
TEHRAN (FNA)- A leading Lebanese newspaper revealed that the US and French intelligence officers are leading operations rooms to escalate the current protest rallies to unrest, violence and a revolution.

"A central operations room has been formed to manage the revolution in Algeria with Rabat city in Morocco as its headquarters. 4 American and 6 Moroccan intelligence officers are present in the operations room as well as 12 Serbian nationals who are called as destruction experts and they are financially supported by the US," the Arabic-language al-Bana newspaper wrote on Monday.

It added that two other rooms for field operations have also been established in Wajdah city in Northeastern Morocco, near the border with Algeria, which is controlled by 11 US, Moroccan, Serbian and Algerian operations officers.

According to the paper, the second room for field operations has been established in the town of al-Rashidiyeh which is 80km away from Algeria, saying that 8 officers from the aforesaid countries and two French intelligence-military officers work for it.

Amid the biggest threat to his 20-year rule, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika arrived at an airbase Southwest of the capital, Algiers, according to state media.

His aircraft on Sunday flew into the Boufarik military airport from the Swiss city of Geneva, where the 82-year-old leader - whose bid to seek a fifth term has been met with unprecedented protests - had a two-week medical trip.

State TV carried a statement from the presidency saying he had returned to Algeria after routine medical checks. Images later showed a convoy departing the airport.

The president, who is confined to a wheelchair, has rarely been seen in public since suffering a stroke in 2013, prompting critics to question whether he is being used as a puppet candidate by a faction of civilian and military figures.

Massive protests began on February 22 to denounce Bouteflika's plans to extend his rule in the April 18 polls.

Bouteflika has offered to limit his term after the election and has vowed to change the "system" that runs the country. The promises, however, have failed to quell public anger, galvanizing discontent among different sectors, particularly students and other young people.

Some long-time allies of Bouteflika, including members of the ruling FLN party, have expressed support for the protesters, revealing cracks within a ruling elite long seen as invincible.

Report: US Intel May Be Behind Attack on North Korean Embassy in Spain

FARSNEWS2019/3/11
Report: US Intel May Be Behind Attack on North Korean Embassy in Spain
TEHRAN (FNA)- US intelligence agencies may have been behind the February attack on the North Korean Embassy in Madrid, during which a group of unidentified people broke into the mission, blocked the diplomats and seized computers, El Confidencial reported on Sunday, citing sources.

According to El Confidencial newspaper, Spain's National Police and the foreign intelligence unit of the National Intelligence Centre (CNI) are examining all possible versions of what happened.

Nevertheless, the sources told the newspaper that the theory that the US intelligence agencies, which could have been acting together with other foreign counterparts, were involved in the attack, was gaining momentum.

CNI reportedly suspects that the way the embassy was attacked resembles the "method of work" of the North American intelligence services during secret operations.

The newspaper added that embassy employees, who were in the building at the time of the attack, told investigators that some attackers spoke Korean and could be nationals of South Korea, a "US strategic ally".

In February, reports emerged in Spanish media, saying that a group of attackers had broken into the North Korean embassy in Madrid, effectively took diplomatic personnel hostage for several hours and seized their computers. One of the employees managed to escape and contacted the police.

Another version is that North Korean intelligence services themselves could have been behind the attack. According to the media outlet, the attack may be somehow connected to the former North Korean ambassador in Madrid, who was declared persona non grata and expelled from Spain back in 2017.

Investigators purportedly believe that the attackers were searching for information about the diplomat, who had been enjoying the freedom of movement in Madrid throughout four years of his mission.

シリア国内にある過激派組織「イスラム国」の最後の拠点を奪還するべく、アメリカの支援を受ける武装組織が攻勢を強めています。
 夜の町に光る火花。過激派組織「イスラム国」が最後の拠点として占拠しているシリア東部の町バグズに、アメリカ軍の支援を受けるクルド人が主体の武装組織、シリア民主軍が10日、攻撃を開始しました。
 AP通信によりますと、これに先立ちシリア民主軍は「イスラム国」側に対し投降を呼びかけ、その期限が終了した現地時間の夕方から攻撃を始めました。
 ただ、バグズの町には3000人から4000人の民間人が取り残されているという情報もあり、死傷者を最小限にとどめるためアメリカ軍のドローンによる上空からの監視のもと、地上作戦が展開されているということです。
 バグズをめぐっては、シリア民主軍が去年9月から攻略を進めてきました。町の中に「イスラム国」の戦闘員以外に「人間の盾」とされた民間人がいたことから、攻撃はたびたび中断していましたが、ここ数日だけでも数千人の民間人が町を脱出していました。(11日08:47) JNN/TBS

SDF attack Islamic State group's Syria enclave Baghuz
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have launched another assault on the Islamic State group's last enclave in Syria.
Head of the SDF media office, Mustafa Bali, tweeted their troops were in "direct violent clashes".
Islamic State militants are centred in the town of Baghuz in eastern Syria.
Once the village is taken, the US and its allies are expected to formally declare the end of the "caliphate" proclaimed by IS in 2014.
Despite the loss of territory, the group is still seen as a major security threat capable of mounting attacks in the region and worldwide.
The group once controlled 88,000 sq km (34,000 sq miles) of territory stretching across Syria and neighbouring Iraq, imposed its brutal rule on almost eight million people, and generated billions of dollars from oil, extortion, robbery and kidnapping.
What's happening in eastern Syria?
After five years of fierce battles, local forces backed by world powers have driven IS out of all but a few hundred square metres near Syria's border with Iraq.
Sunday's attack began at about 18:00 local time (16:00 GMT), with air strikes aimed at weapons stores.
SDF and coalition planes are involved in the assault, and the militant camp is now ablaze.
But the SDF has said before that it had launched a "final assault". After intense air and artillery strikes on 1 March, the alliance said it had to slow down the offensive "due to a small number of civilians held as human shields".
About 3,000 people were evacuated on Monday and another 3,500, including 500 militants who surrendered, followed on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, a further 2,000 people left Baghuz, Reuters news agency reported. They were taken to an SDF checkpoint where they were searched, questioned and given food and water.
Mr Bali told Reuters news agency no further civilians had come out of the town since Saturday.
He also said more than 4,000 militants have surrendered in the past month. Five SDF fighters who had been held hostage by IS were also freed.
But Mr Bali tweeted that the fate of other hostages remained unknown, including those of Italian priest Paolo Dall'Oglio and Lebanese journalist Samir Kassab.

SDF hopes to complete evacuation of last ISIS enclave in Syria
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) hope the evacuation of people wishing to leave the last enclave of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in eastern Syria will be completed on Thursday. The SDF wants to ensure all civilians have been evacuated from the besieged enclave of Baghouz before launching a final assault. Baghouz is the last shred of populated territory held by IS, which once controlled swathes of Iraq and Syria. Thousands of people, many of them family members of IS militants, have poured out of Baghouz over the last several weeks, Reuters said. Hundreds of militants have also surrendered, according to the SDF. The IS militants are still widely assessed to represent a security threat with a foothold in patches of remote territory and the capacity to mount guerrilla attacks.

US Army, SDF Help Thousands of ISIL Terrorists Move out of Eastern Deir Ezzur
TEHRAN (FNA)- The US Army and its allied militants helped a large number of the ISIL terrorists to get out of Deir Ezzur province as Washington and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are preparing to declare the end of the ISIL in Eastern Euphrates.

"Over 60,000 ISIL terrorists and their families have been helped out of Baghouz region in Eastern Deir Ezzur by the US and the US-backed militants since the beginning of last December," the Kurdish-language Bas news website quoted an informed SDF source as saying.

He noted that over half of the terrorists leaving Eastern Euphrates are Iraqi nationals, and the rest come from a variety of nations.

This comes as the US-led coalition and their allied militants are eyeing an agreement with terrorists to exit the areas under their control in Eastern Euphrates in a bid to declare the end of the ISIL in the region.

In a relevant development in late February, the Syrian sources said that the US Army transferred senior ISIL commanders to safe places in lieu of receiving over 50 tons of gold treasure from the terrorists.

According to the initial information obtained in Deir Ezzur, the US Army troops stationed in Al-Jazeera region of Eastern Euphrates agreed with the ISIL commanders to relocate them to safe places after receiving tens of tons of gold ingot that the terrorists had stolen from different parts of Syria and Iraq, the state-run SANA news agency reported.

The local sources, meantime, reported that the US Army took control of ISIL's 50 tons of gold treasure in Baqouz region in Southeastern Deir Ezzur after it had reached an agreement with the terrorists.

They pointed to the recent intensified movements by the US choppers concurrent with flights over several ISIL-controlled regions in Eastern Euphrates, and said that the US has conducted important heliborne operations in key areas where the ISIL commanders' hideouts are located and where the gold treasure was hidden.

In a relevant development earlier last month, a source close to Kurdish forces said that the US Army was taking ISIL's gold treasure that is estimated to weigh around 50 tons from Eastern Syria to America.

Bas News quoted a Kurdish source as saying that the Americans have transferred tens of tons of the gold ingots they have seized from the ISIL terrorists in Baghouz region in Southeastern Deir Ezzur to their own country and only kept a small portion of the treasure to be given to the Kurdish fighters.

The source who spoke on the condition of anonymity reiterated that about 50 tons of ISIL's gold has been sent to the US from the US military base in Kobani in Northeastern Aleppo.

The report comes as the US has been using the airport in Southern Kobani for transferring consignments and military equipment in recent years.

In a relevant development earlier last month, the US Army troops took out a sum of 40 tons of gold ingots belonging to the ISIL in heliborne operations after agreeing with the terrorist group and while Washington is preparing to announce the end of ISIL in Eastern Euphrates.

"The US troops in concordance with the ISIL terrorist group relocated big boxes packed with ISIL's gold treasure on several helicopters from al-Dashisheh region in Southern Hasaka," the SANA news agency quoted local sources in Eastern Deir Ezzur as saying.

The sources pointed to boxes containing 40 tons of gold ingots that the ISIL had hidden in the Eastern part of al-Shadadi city, and said that the ISIL had stolen the treasure of gold from the Iraqi city of Mosul and different parts of Syria.

The US troops reportedly took out a group of ISIL terrorist commanders from Eastern Syria in two heliborne operations in Hajin region of Eastern Deir Ezzur and al-Dashisheh in Southern Hasaka and they were directed to the place where the gold treasure was hidden.

In a relevant development also last month, the London-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR) said the Washington-backed militants were trying to find and seize millions of dollars and at least 40 tons of gold left behind by the ISIL terrorist group.

The SOHR reported that the ISIL terrorists had stolen about 40 tons of gold and millions of dollars from the population once under their control in Iraq and Syria, which was later transferred to Eastern Euphrates in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

"The US-led coalition forces and the SDF deliberately do not target the areas under the control of the ISIL terrorists and commanders in Eastern Euphrates in Deir Ezzur as they are trying to locate this treasure by forcing the ISIL militants to speak about its location after surrendering," it quoted informed sources as saying.

They noted that part of the cash dollars and gold have been transferred from Turkey to the areas under the ISIL control by Turkish brokers and intelligence service who have close ties with the ISIL.

Meantime, an SDF Commander, Adnan Afrin, said that the ISIL is now under the siege of the SDF in an area no larger than one square kilometers in Eastern Euphrates.

In a relevant development earlier in February, a prominent Syrian military expert revealed that Washington plans to transfer the remnants of the ISIL terrorists from Eastern Euphrates to other regions through Turkey and Iraq.

The Sputnik quoted Brigadier General Mohammad Issa as saying that less than 600 ISIL militants are stationed in a 4-km/sq region in Eastern Euphrates who will be soon evacuated from the region to foreign territories.

He added that the operations to transfer these militants will be conducted similar to the operations earlier carried out to evacuate the ISIL terrorists from Raqqa, saying that the US forces will transfer them via Iraq or Turkey to some other Arab states for future operations.

Issa questioned the US forces' claims of fighting against the terrorist groups along with the SDF, stressing that the Syrian army will soon move to retake control over this region.

Tens of Civilians Killed in US-Led Coalition Airstrikes on Refugee Camp in Eastern Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- A large number of civilians were killed and wounded in airstrikes and artillery attacks by the US-led coalition and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on a refugee camp in Eastern Deir Ezzur, the Arabic-language media reported.

"About 60 civilians, including children, were killed and 15 others were wounded in the US-led airstrikes and SDF artillery attacks on residential areas in a refugee camp located in the town of al-Baqouz in Eastern Deir Ezzur," the SANA news agency reported.

It said that the US-led airstrikes on al-Baqouz refugee camp left more than 50 civilians, including children, killed.

Meantime, pro-militant Baldi news website also reported that seven civilians, including a number of children, were killed and over 15 others were wounded in artillery attacks by SDF on al-Baqouz.

In a relevant development in February, the US-led coalition fighter jets pounded a camp of Syrian civilians who had fled from the ISIL's captivity in the town of Baghouz in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.

The Arabic-language media said that a sum of 70 Syrians had been killed or wounded in the US-led airstrikes, adding that the toll is expected to rise due to deteriorating conditions of the injured and difficulties in rendering aid to them.

In a relevant air raid in January, the US-led airstrikes killed at least 31 civilians in the village of al-Baghouz Foqani.

"The number of civilians killed in the US airstrikes on people's houses in the village of al-Baghouz Foqani has reached 31 so far," the Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted local sources as saying.

The daily noted that the victims belonged to three families who came under the US air raids as they were fleeing the ISIL-controlled areas in the region.

Baghouz: ISIS militants retreat underground as coalition offensive resumes
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Islamic State fighters are using a network of tunnels under the village of Baghouz, eastern Syria, to avoid being targeted by coalition warplanes and Kurdish-led forces, which have resumed attacks on the last jihadist redoubt.

Coalition jets are targeting Islamic State (ISIS) positions inside the besieged village, including weapons depots and food stores.

Fierce fighting is expected to continue late into the night on Monday, according to Rudaw’s reporter on the front line.

“Daesh fighters are hiding in the tunnels,” an Arab fighter with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) told Rudaw, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

“It is a street fight. ISIS fighters are only meters away from us. I asked one of their foreign fighters, who came close, to surrender and his life will be protected, but he refused.”

Hawar News, a media agency close to the ruling authority of Rojava, reported that progress has been slowed further by the density of landmines in the area.

Advancing forces face another hidden foe, SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali told Rudaw – snipers, using tunnels and spider holes to target reconnaissance teams.

“Our forces have liberated this area. This area was inhabited by civilians. About 50 of our comrades went in there, 50 meters from here, for reconnaissance,” said Bali, adding there is only a distance of 100 meters between their forces and ISIS.

Fighting has repeatedly paused in recent weeks as the SDF opened corridors to allow civilians and surrendering ISIS members to evacuate.

Those who cross SDF lines are interrogated. Suspected militants are taken into custody, while civilians and the families of fighters are removed to makeshift camps.

If no more families emerge from the village within the next three days, the SDF and coalition will launch their final push into Baghouz, SDF officials told Rudaw.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, UK-based war monitor, says a further 340 ISIS fighters and their families left Baghouz in the last 48 hours, bring the total to emerge from the last ISIS redoubt to almost 50,000.
