Indonesia: Nearly 370 Poll Workers, Police Die of Fatigue
TEHRAN (FNA)- A total of 367 Indonesian election workers and police personnel died of fatigue caused by excessive workload during and after general elections held in mid-April in the country, the election body said on Monday.

According to the General Election Commission, 70% of the deceased were over 40 years of age, Anadolu Agency reported.

Arif Rahman Hakim, the commission’s secretary general, announced that 2,151 more members of the Voting Organizing Group have fallen sick, according to the data gathered up to Monday morning.

Based on a court ruling in 2014, the presidential and legislative elections were held simultaneously on the same day --- the first time in the country’s history.

That means each voter had to cast five separate ballots for president and vice president, House of Representatives, Regional Representatives Council, provincial legislative council and regional or municipal legislative council.

For this year’s elections, the election commission recruited around 7 million people to help run more than 800,000 polling stations.

Previously, Fritz Siregar, a member of the Election Supervisory Board, stated that the simultaneous elections have significantly increased the workload of polling workers, adding, "That caused a lot of fatigue, many of them fell sick and died."

Widiriyani, 52, a worker who helped run a polling station in West Sumatra’s city of Bukittinggi, admitted that this year’s workload is heavier than before.

She noted that seven members of the Voting Organizing Group have to count and recapitulate more than 1,000 ballots from 225 voters at the polling station where she was in charge.

According to Widiriyani, calculating legislatives votes took the longest time as they had to count votes for dozens of political parties and hundreds of candidates.

In addition, the Voting Organizing Group was also in charge of preparing reports and other administrative jobs to be submitted to the election commission.

"On the voting day, we started working at 07.00 am local time [0000 GMT], started counting votes at 02.00 pm [0700 GMT], and finished at 3.30 am [2000 GMT]," she said.

She added that each member of the Voting Organizing Group received allowance of 605,000 Indonesian rupiahs ($42.6), without insurance and were not accompanied by health workers.

Addressing this situation, the government approved election commission’s proposal to provide compensation to election officials, who experienced misfortune while preparing, performing and after completing their duties.

"This compensation applies to officials who experience misfortune from January 2019 until the end of their term of service," Evi Novida Ginting, the election commissioner, said in a statement on Monday.

The families of those who died will be given a compensation of 36 million Indonesian rupiahs ($2,534), while those who were sick, injured or disabled will be given 8.25 million to 30 million Indonesian rupiahs ($581-$2,112).

Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla called for evaluating the decision to hold simultaneous presidential and legislative elections on the same day.

"Should we just let it continue so that in the next five years, hundreds will die of exhaustion after counting for a long time? It must be proportional," Kalla noted.

He believed that the meaning of "simultaneously" in the election needs to be reviewed.

Rules related to elections can be possibly changed through the revision of the Act by the House of Representatives.

Executive Director of Association for Elections and Democracy Titi Anggraini criticized the 2019 election system, saying it was more like "bulk elections", rather than "simultaneous elections".

She suggested that the simultaneous elections should be divided into two parts: national and local elections.

"This system will reduce the workload of the workers," Anggraini added.

Iran's Police Commander: Drug Production Multi-Folded after US Invasion of Afghanistan
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Police Chief Brigadier General Hossein Ashtari warned that production of different types of narcotics has grown much in Afghanistan since the US started war against the country in 2001.

"Cultivation of poppy and production of drugs have multi-folded in Afghanistan since the deployment of Americans," General Ashtari told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday.

He described Iran as a pioneering state in campaign against drug trafficking, and said, "We have declared our information and needs to the international organizations and I should say that we have not pinned hope on their aid."

"We do not have hope that the international organizations can seriously confront" the cultivation and production of narcotics in Afghanistan, General Ashtari said.

Iran is in the forefront of the fight against drug trafficking and thousands of Iranian police forces have been so far martyred to protect the world from the danger of drugs.

The Iranian anti-narcotic police have always staged periodic operations against drug traffickers and dealers, but the latest reports - which among others indicate an improved and systematic dissemination of information - reveal that the world's most forefront and dedicated anti-narcotic force (as UN drug-campaign assessments put it) has embarked on a long-term countrywide plan to crack down on the drug trade since several years ago.

The Iranian police officials maintain that drug production in Afghanistan has undergone a 40-fold increase since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.

Afghan and western officials blame Washington and NATO for the change, saying that allies have "overlooked" the drug problem since invading the country more than 18 years ago.

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Releases 1st Video After 5 Years, Threatens to Take Revenge
TEHRAN (FNA)- ISIL ringleader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a new video message released after five years threatened to take revenge of the killed and jailed members of the terrorist group.

The ISIL terrorist group released an 18-minute video message of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in which he has threatened to continue his terrorist activities.

Al-Baghdadi is seen with three masked militants while the ISIL ringleader points to the ISIL's exit from Baqouz region in Eastern Deir Ezzur and reiterates that the Baqouz Battle has ended.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi also said that he will take revenge of his killed and captive militants, adding that the ISIL has conducted 92 terrorists operations in eight countries to take revenge of its killed and captured members in al-Sham region.

The ISIL ringleader also claimed that the Easter blasts in Sri Lanka have been carried out in line with ISIL's revenge for Baquouz battle.

The newly-released video of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the first since the last one released in Iraqi Mosul's Nour Mosque in 2014.

管理人は、今回アル・バクダーディとしてビデオに登場した人物は、これまでの画像と比較して似てはいるものの別人だと思います。


アル・バクダーディの消息については、相反する情報がしばしば流されました。特にイラクの情報機関や現地情報筋をソースとするものが多く、カネをもらってやっている情報かく乱であることが見え見えでした。

ロシア軍がシリア政府の要請により参戦したのは、2015/9/30です。ダマスカス陥落も近いとみられていた戦況がその後一気に反転します。ロシア軍の空爆は、軍事衛星やドローンを使った24時間の監視でテロリストの動きを追い、立ち寄り場所=司令部、訓練場所、武器貯蔵庫を把握してそれを多様な武器を駆使してピンポイントで攻撃するというものでした。

それがめざましい成果を上げ始め、米国が焦りを強めたのが、2017年。ロシア参戦から1年半後。米国同盟軍がシリア政府同盟軍に対する直接の攻撃を強めます。

ロシア空軍が2017/5/28ISIS幹部の集会場所を爆撃し350人程度を殲滅したと2017/6/16発表します。その際に合わせてこの集会に参加していたアル・バクダーディを殺害したとみられると発表しました。米軍はこの発表に対して何も確認しませんでした。その一方で米国同盟軍がシリア政府同盟軍への攻撃を強めました。

この後、アルバクダーディの消息に関連して、アルバクダーディが死亡した場合どうするかという世論調査が行われたり(何か民主的な手法に見えておかしかったのですが)、アルバクダーディが死亡したことを前提に話をしたアルバクダーディの側近が見せしめの方法で殺害されたり、テロリストの中で後継者として名乗りを上げる者が出たりしました。

アルバクダーディの音声メッセージとされるものも出たことがありますが、ビデオ画像は5年ぶりです。そしてそれが別人。

海外の報道を見ると同一人物かどうかはあまり問題にされていません。会社の社長が、国の大統領が、宗教指導者が交代することはもちろんあるわけで、誰がやるかよりもその職を務める人がいるのかいないのかがはるかに重要なことです。

管理人の見るようにアル・バクダーディが以前の人物と違うのであれば、ロシア空軍の2017/5/28、ISIS幹部集会場所爆撃で死亡したのは間違いありませんね。

米軍は、この事実を知って唖然としたでしょう。そしてロシア憎しが米国の戦争屋の間で燃え盛った。経済制裁でもなんでもやっておかしくない。

このロシア国防省発表が事実と確認できるまで2年かかりました。

なぜ米軍はシリアから撤退できないのか

米国大統領がシリアから米軍兵士を撤退させると述べても進展していません。

1 もともとシリアのテロリストの元締めは米国。
2 シリアでは、シリア政府軍が一部地域を除いてテロリストを制圧しています。テロリストが動きを示せば、シリア軍(+ロシア軍)が壊滅策に出ますので動かせません。イドリブはトルコが対クルドの関係でテロリスト温存、デリゾールの東は米軍がテロリストの避難・温存場所に使っています。アルタンフ、パルミラに近い砂漠も米軍のテロリスト温存場所。
3 イラクは、部族長にカネを渡してテロリストの活動拠点が確保できるようで、米軍はなんとかしてイラクに兵士の駐在継続を狙ってイラク政府と交渉。
4 アフガンにはテロリストを送り込んでいますが、タリバンはこれとは一線を画しています。アフガンの和平交渉で米軍の段階的撤退が決まりましたからここをテロリストの拠点とすることは難しくなりました。
5 リビアにもテロリストを送り込みましたが、国内の二つの勢力の対立が激化し、テロリストの出る幕ではなくなっています。
6 シリア内の欧州出身のテロリスト、特に所帯持ちについては下手に解放するとシリア軍に捕らえられることから出身国に引き取りを求めていますが、欧州は消極的。
7 ISISの首領アル・バクダーディが5年ぶりにビデオメッセージを公開しました。何度も瀕死の重傷を負ったとされていますが、一時は米軍基地内に保護されていたとの説もあり、真相は不明です。アル・バクダーディの消息については、目まぐるしく情報が入り乱れており、特にイラク内でカネによる情報操作が行われていたとみられます。

なお、管理人は、今回アル・バクダーディとしてビデオに登場した人物は、これまでの画像と比較して似てはいるものの別人だと思います。

2017/5/28 ロシア空軍がISIS幹部の集会場所を爆撃、350人程度を殲滅したと発表していますが、アル・バクダーディがこの時に殺害されたのはまず間違いない。2017年06月20日 アル・バクダーディは死んだらしい

8 アル・バクダーディの殺害を米国がその後も隠し続けなければならなかったのはなぜか。すでに2年経過。アル・バクダーディの死亡が組織の崩壊、少なくても士気の低下、混乱を招くからです。ここに来て身代わりを立てた。そして報復を誓わせた。テロリストの雇用者、組織者はこれからもテロリストを活用する気満々です。テロリストをレジムチェンジの先兵として使おうとしています。嫌がらせもありましょう。

9 シリア、イラクでISISが一部石油を盗掘販売している模様ですが、大きな収入源にはなりがたいでしょう。それなのになぜ今なおテロリストが組織的に活動しているのか。彼らの賃金、活動資金はどこから出ているのか。

10 スリランカの連続テロは、ISISが犯行声明を出していますが、なぜこれが報復になるのかわからない。これだけの犠牲者を出すテロは、イスラム教徒は怖いという印象を世界に植え付ける目的とみられます。イスラエルとイスラム世界との対立が緊迫する中で、そのような印象を植え付けられればイスラエルの戦争犯罪も相対的に目立たなくなるという計算がある可能性もあります。

結論的には、米国はテロリストを温存しようともくろんでいる。そのためにシリア国内のテロリストを他の場所に避難完了させない限り、米軍兵士は撤退できないということになります。

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Releases 1st Video After 5 Years, Threatens to Take Revenge

We locked up IS fighters for your benefit, Europe; now take them back – Trump
US President Donald Trump has accused European countries of “not helping” to repatriate Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL) fighters imprisoned in Syria, “even though this was very much done for their benefit”.

“We have 1,800 ISIS Prisoners taken hostage in our final battles to destroy 100% of the Caliphate in Syria. Decisions are now being made as to what to do with these dangerous prisoners,” the US leader wrote on Twitter. “European countries are not helping at all, even though this was very much done for their benefit. They are refusing to take back prisoners from their specific countries. Not good!”

Trump’s administration declared Syria free of IS control last month, and the US chief is now pushing for withdrawal of the country’s troops there. In February, he threatened to release 800 IS prisoners if EU countries like Britain, France and Germany refused to “step up and do the job” and pointed to the cost to the US of keeping IS fighters detained.

At the time he tweeted: “The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them.

“The US does not want to watch as these ISIS fighters permeate Europe, which is where they are expected to go. We do so much, and spend so much – Time for others to step up and do the job that they are so capable of doing.”

The Guardian reported at the start of this month that Washington is in talks with Baghdad to transfer and try thousands of suspected IS militants –and their families– from Syrian prison camps. Iraq is seeking some $10 billion up front, it reported, and a further $1 billion per-year to process the prisoners.

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Releases 1st Video After 5 Years, Threatens to Take Revenge
TEHRAN (FNA)- ISIL ringleader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in a new video message released after five years threatened to take revenge of the killed and jailed members of the terrorist group.

The ISIL terrorist group released an 18-minute video message of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in which he has threatened to continue his terrorist activities.

Al-Baghdadi is seen with three masked militants while the ISIL ringleader points to the ISIL's exit from Baqouz region in Eastern Deir Ezzur and reiterates that the Baqouz Battle has ended.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi also said that he will take revenge of his killed and captive militants, adding that the ISIL has conducted 92 terrorists operations in eight countries to take revenge of its killed and captured members in al-Sham region.

The ISIL ringleader also claimed that the Easter blasts in Sri Lanka have been carried out in line with ISIL's revenge for Baquouz battle.

The newly-released video of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the first since the last one released in Iraqi Mosul's Nour Mosque in 2014.

On Saturday, Russian media reports claimed that al-Baghdadi was in Syria's Badiyeh (desert) region, attempting to cross the border into Iraq.

The Arabic-language service of RT news channel quoted an Iraqi intelligence source as saying that al-Baghdadi was at present hiding in Abu Rajmin mountain near Syria's Palmyra region in Homs province.

He added that the ISIL leader wants to cross the border into Iraq in the next few weeks, noting that he has already made several unsuccessful attempts due to the tight security measures at the border.

The report said captured ISIL terrorists have leaked during interrogations that al-Baghdadi has been left with a small number of Saudi, Tunisian and Iraqi militants who are still loyal to him.

Security experts said al-Baghdadi is likely trying to join the ISIL terrorists who have been transferred by the US from Syria to Iraq.

Iraq's security experts have accused the US army of training hundreds of ISIL terrorists in al-Anbar province after relocating them from Syria to Iraq to prepare them for a new round of insecurity in the country.

"Between 700 to 1,000 ISIL militants are being trained by the US troops in al-Anbar province," the Arabic-language al-Maloumeh news website quoted Manager of Badr Organization in Al-Anbar Province Qusai al-Anbari as saying in March.

He pointed to the special conditions considered for the ISIL militants, and said that the US troops had specified redlines for third parties to avoid approaching the region.

This is while the Arabic-language Arabi Post recently disclosed that the US troops had been intensively training the ISIL terrorists in two military bases of Ain al-Assad and al-Habanieh in al-Anbar province under name of desert ghosts.

The sources said the US army troops had equipped the ISIL terrorists with 200 military and non-military vehicles.

F-35 project is bound to COLLAPSE without Turkey – Erdogan

F-35 project is bound to COLLAPSE without Turkey – Erdogan
The F-35 fighter jet project is doomed to fail if Washington keeps blocking the delivery of the promised aircraft to Turkey over its refusal to back out of an arms deal with Russia, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

Speaking at a defense expo in Istanbul on Tuesday, Erdogan blasted Washington for applying “injustice and pressure” against its ally Turkey over the beleaguered F-35 deal.

The F-35 project is bound to completely collapse if it excludes Turkey.

The US blocked the delivery of the jets to Ankara, saying that the planes will not be shipped unless the country scraps its contract to buy the S-400 air defense missile systems from Russia. The US politicians argued that getting arms from Moscow undermines the security of NATO.

“No attempts to impose anything [on Turkey] will be accepted,” Erdogan warned.

“We have now begun to take steps in building our own national combat aircraft,” he told the audience, emphasizing that the nation plans to have its Air Force entirely comprised of domestically built warplanes in the future.

Turkish officials have earlier hinted that they will seek various defense technology, including warplanes, from other partners if the US fails to deliver the promised jets.

Ankara had also been repeatedly telling the US that it will stick to the S-400 purchase, insisting that as a sovereign nation it is free to buy arms from whoever it likes. The first pack of the S-400s is scheduled to be shipped to Turkey in July.

US-backed Guaido calls for Venezuela military uprising in VIDEO of him surrounded by soldiers

US-backed Guaido calls for Venezuela military uprising in VIDEO of him surrounded by soldiers
Self-declared Venezuelan ‘interim president’ Juan Guaido has called for a military uprising in a video shot at a Caracas airbase, accompanied by a number of soldiers and detained activist Leopoldo Lopez.

The moment has come to “start the end of the usurpation,” Guaido said in the video, flanked by heavily-armed soldiers and an armored vehicle. According to him, the speech was made at the Generalissimo Francisco de Miranda Air Base in Caracas, commonly known as ‘La Carlota’.

Guaido was filmed standing next to opposition politician Leopoldo Lopez who was arrested in 2014 and held under house arrest after he was found guilty of “inciting violence” during the anti-government riots. Lopez wrote on Twitter that he was “released by the military” on Tuesday under the orders of Guaido.

The three-minute video was shot ahead of a planned anti-government rally that day, in which Guaido said that the soldiers deployed to the streets would be acting to “protect Venezuela’s constitution.”

Guaido had earlier claimed on Twitter that he was meeting with “the key military units” of the Venezuelan army as “the beginning of the final phase of Operation Freedom.”

The army “had taken the right decision” to move out against President Nicolas Maduro, he wrote. He also called on Venezuelans to go out on the streets and help to “mobilize” the army against the government.

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez, meanwhile, blasted Guaido’s move as “a coup with the aims to flood the country with violence.”

The army “stands firm in defense of the National Constitution and the legitimate authorities,” he said, adding that the military units all across Venezuela are staying at their bases and remain loyal to their commanders.

Around 50 countries globally, including the US, have recognized Guaido's 'interim presidency'. He has argued that Maduro's 2018 re-election was illegitimate, and in recent weeks has stepped up pressure on Maduro to step down. In response, Maduro's government has stripped Guaido of his parliamentary immunity and barred him from leaving the country.

Bolivian President Evo Morales decried the “coup”, writing on Twitter: “We strongly condemn the coup attempt in #Venezuela, by the right wing that is submissive to foreign interests.” President Maduro retweeted the note of support on Tuesday morning.

President Morales added: “The United States with its interference and promoting coups seeks to provoke violence and death in #Venezuela, it does not care about human losses, only its interests. We must be vigilant and united so that the coup plotters never return to our region.”


‘Hint of desperation’: Guaido called for coup after popular mobilization flopped, analyst tells RT
Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido resorted to calls for a military uprising after his plot to bring about a ‘color revolution’ lost steam and failed to achieve regime change, political analyst Chris Bambery told RT.

Guaido’s recent moves show that he has “let the dynamic slip” and “lost momentum” since he challenged Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro as a self-declared interim president in January, Bambery said. They also indicate that the opposition chief’s “popular mobilization has come and gone,” he added.

The analyst believes that a coup to oust Maduro was the scenario preferred by Guaido’s backers in the US who tried to sow dissent within the army.

The opposition leader earlier claimed to have met with “the key units” of the Venezuelan Army. In a video address filmed near an airbase in Caracas on Tuesday, he called on the army to “end the usurpation” by the Maduro government. It was followed by clashes in the capital, as police used tear gas against protesters.

Venezuelan officials denounced the “coup attempt,” with the defense minister saying the incident was isolated and that army units across the country remained loyal to their commanders. The army is “central” to the Maduro government staying in power, Bambery said.
