Boris Johnson chosen as next British prime minister
In a long-anticipated move, Boris Johnson has been selected as the new leader of the British Conservative Party and thus, the new prime minister of the UK. He will officially succeed outgoing PM Theresa May on Wednesday.

Johnson won with 66.4 percent of the vote (92,153) to Hunt's 33.6 percent (46,656). Turnout was 87.4 percent.

Delivering his impassioned victory speech, the new prime minister claimed that there will be people who "question the wisdom" of him becoming leader.

Some 160,000 members of the Tory party had been voting by post for the past two and a half weeks. Johnson saw off his challenger Jeremy Hunt and was revealed as the new PM shortly before midday local time in London.

A former mayor of London and former British foreign secretary, Johnson was the clear favourite from the moment Theresa May announced she would be stepping down, following her failure to secure a Brexit deal with the EU.

You’d have to be mad to think Boris Johnson is the answer to Britain’s problems - George Galloway

As Noel Coward sang, “Only Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the noon-day sun.” You could say the same about the Conservative Party, which just chose Boris Johnson to lead it.

Getting his sole challenger Jeremy Hunt’s name wrong has become a national obsession. Mind you, he got his own wife’s nationality wrong when he claimed she was Japanese (she’s Chinese) on a mission to...China!

You’d have to have been out in the noonday sun, would certainly have to be English and being mad would help, if you thought Boris Johnson was the answer to Britain’s now rather critical problems.

Britain’s (almost) new prime minister is the perfect encapsulation of all of the vices (and one or two virtues, to be fair) of the upper-class English elite (even though his grasp on Englishness is itself tenuous).

150 Polish Combat Troops Arrive at US Military Base in Western Iraq
TEHRAN (FNA)- A military convoy comprising tens of polish Army troops have arrived in a US-controlled military base in al-Anbar province in Western Iraq, Iraqi sources disclosed on Tuesday.

“A sum of 150 Polish soldiers have arrived in Ain al-Assad military base in the city of Heet in al-Baghdadi region in Western al-Anbar province,” the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website quoted a security source in Al-Anbar province as saying.

The source noted that the dispatch of Polish soldiers comes in line with the US plan to increase the number of the US-led forces in Western Iraq.

In relevant remarks in mid-May, a battlefield source Iraqi Hashd al-Sha’abi (popular forces) was quoted by the Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news agency as saying that “Washington has plans to set up military bases and increasing its troops in Iraq”.

The source added that the US was engaged in expanding Ain al-Assad base.

It noted that the operations to expand Ain al-Assad air base had taken place concurrent with arrival of the US military vehicles and equipment to the base, and said that the expansion of Ain al-Assad will include some major sectors of airport to the South of the base.

Meantime, the Saudi Okaz newspaper quoted some Iraqi parliamentary sources as saying that Washington intends to increase the number of its troops in Iraq.

It said Washington has informed Baghdad that it is going to set a new military base for its new troops, and added that the Iraqi government has not responded to the US request yet.

トランプのアフガニスタンを地上から消し去ることができるとの発言はレトリックではなく本心

Furious Afghan People, Officials Decry Trump's Racist Remarks
TEHRAN (FNA)- US President Donald Trump's insulting and racist remarks about Afghanistan were strongly condemned by the Afghan government, politicians and social media activists.

Trump in a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan in Washington earlier this week said that "we’re like policemen. We’re not fighting a war. If we wanted to fight a war in Afghanistan and win it, I could win that war in a week. But I don’t want to kill 10 million people. Afghanistan could be wiped off the face of the Earth. I don’t want to go that route”.

The US leader made several surprising statements Monday alongside Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House, including that he had plans for a quick end to the Afghan conflict, but which would wipe the country “off the face of the Earth”.

Afghanistan “would be gone. It would be over in literally, in 10 days,” Trump said, adding, “I don’t want to go that route” and that he did not want to kill millions.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said Tuesday the US should clarify remarks Trump made about Afghanistan, including a claim he could easily win the war but did not “want to kill 10 million people”.

“The government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan calls for clarification on the US president’s statements expressed at a meeting with the Pakistan prime minister, via diplomatic means and channels,” Ghani’s office said in a statement.

Also, several Afghan lawyers deplored Trump's insulting remarks, describing them as irresponsible.

Meantime, the Afghan politicians and social media activists condemned his comments, calling on the government to adopt a clear policy towards Washington.

They underlined that the Afghan people which enjoy a civilization of thousands of years will not allow the foreigners to insult their country.

They also called on Washington to pull out its forces from Afghanistan.

Earlier, a private US company had also done a major upheaval for the people of Afghanistan. Amazon Website featured a new product of Bathroom Rug and Math for its US customers which were designed with the 3 colors flag of Afghanistan.

In the samples which were shown on the Amazon website, it was stated that these Mats and Rugs were the newcomer products in US markets. According to Amazon website adds, “Analisahome Toilet cushion suit flag of Afghanistan vector accurate dimensions elements proportions and colors Nonslip, Microfiber Shag, Absorbent, Machine Washable”!

Afghanistan Demands US Explain Trump’s Comments About ‘Wiping’ Country off Face of Earth
TEHRAN (FNA)- Kabul requested that Washington clarify remarks made by Donald Trump, in which the US president boldly said he could “win” the war in Afghanistan if he completely annihilated the country.

Not mincing words, the Office of the President said it’s not up to Washington or any other foreign state to decide Afghanistan’s future.

"The Afghan nation has not and will never allow any foreign power to determine its fate," it added.

The statement announced that Kabul supports US efforts “for ensuring peace in Afghanistan, the government underscores that foreign heads of state cannot determine Afghanistan’s fate in absence of the Afghan leadership”.

"Afghanistan will remain dignified and firm in the global political arena," the statement read.

Now the Afghan government seeks “clarification on the US President’s statements” via “diplomatic means and channels”, the statement read.

The US president boasted on Monday that he could “win” the war in Afghanistan “literally” in 10 days, but it would require the deaths of millions and the country “would be wiped off the face of the earth”.

Trump Claims He Could Win Afghan War in A Week But Doesn't 'Want to Kill 10 Million People'
TEHRAN (FNA)- President Donald Trump stated on Monday he could end the war in Afghanistan “in a week”, but that doing so would cause millions of deaths.

Instead, the US president said during a White House meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan that he wants Pakistan’s help to bring an end to the nearly 18-year-old conflict, The Hill reported.

“I could win that war in a week. I just don’t want to kill 10 million people,” Trump told reporters, alluding to what he said were military plans.

“If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth. ... It would be over in − literally, in 10 days,” he added.

The president, who campaigned on ending lengthy overseas US military engagements, called the war “ridiculous” and stated it helped turned the nation into the world’s “policemen”.

“I don’t want to go that route,” Trump said of his supposed military plan, adding, “So we’re working with Pakistan and others to extricate ourselves. Nor do we want to be policemen, because basically we're policemen right now. And we're not supposed to be policemen.”

The Afghan conflict was one of the top agenda items for Trump’s meeting with Khan. The administration has been engaged in peace talks with the Taliban aimed at ending the war, which was launched after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The Oval Office huddle was aimed at cooling tensions with Pakistan in an effort to coax them into putting pressure on the Taliban to agree to a ceasefire with the Afghan government.

Khan agreed with Trump that the war must be brought to an end through peace talks.

“There is no military solution in Afghanistan,” he told reporters, noting, “If you go all-out military, there will be millions and millions of people who will die."

Trump said that Pakistan could help play a role in stabilizing Afghanistan after a possible US pullout and suggested he could restore hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Pakistan “depending on what we work out”.

“I think we have a better relationship with Pakistan right now than we did when we were paying that money. But all of that can come back, Trump added.

Trump cut off $1.3 billion in annual aid payments to Pakistan in January 2018 after Washington accused the South Asian country of not doing enough to combat terrorist groups.

Venezuela blames nationwide blackouts on ‘electromagnetic attack’
Massive power outages all across Venezuela were likely caused by an “electromagnetic attack,” the government of President Nicholas Maduro said, stressing that authorities are working to restore the service as soon as possible.

The blackout affected the entire nation, Minister of Communication and Information Jorge Rodríguez said on Monday evening, claiming that the power was knocked out by outside interference. The government has activated all the necessary protocols to provide safety for Venezuelans and work crews are already working to restore power.

Preliminary probe into the incident has suggested the “existence of an electromagnetic attack that sought to affect the hydroelectric generation system of Guayana, the main provider of this service in the country,” the minister told state channel VTV.

While authorities are struggling to resolve the crisis, the US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido has used the power outage to once again attack his political opponent, accusing President Maduro of “destroying” the country's electrical system.

In March, Venezuela suffered two major blackouts that sent the country into darkness for days. At the time, Caracas blamed it on cyberattacks on the Guri Hydroelectric generation and distribution system and accused the US-backed local opposition of sabotaging the power grid. Maduro also accused Washington of waging an “electricity war” to bring Guaido to power.

US doesn’t want war with Iran & UK should take care of its own ships – Pompeo
Amid rising tensions, Mike Pompeo has insisted the US doesn’t want war with Iran and the UK is responsible for taking care of its own ships. The secretary of state also dismissed Tehran’s claims it had arrested CIA-linked spies.

Pompeo was speaking to Fox and Friends on Monday morning when he was asked what the US role was in getting back the British oil tanker Stena Impero, seized by Iran last week.

“The responsibility in the first instance falls to the United Kingdom to take care of their ships,” Pompeo said, adding, “This isn’t because of US sanctions, this is because of the theocracy of the leadership in Iran, the revolutionary zeal to conduct terror around the world, for now four decades, continues.”

“We don’t want war with Iran, we want them to behave like a normal nation,” he added. “I think they understand that.”

Iran has said that all 23 crew members on the Stena Impero are “safe and in good health,” and that it seized the tanker in response to the UK’s seizure of one of its own tankers on July 4.

In his interview, Pompeo also dismissed Iran’s announcement that it had captured 17 CIA-linked spies. “The Iranian regime has a long history of lying,” he said.

Moscow Says Tehran’s Arguments on Seized Oil Ship More Convincing Than London’s
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s arguments on the situation around the British Stena Impero tanker look more convincing than those of the Gibraltar authorities and the United Kingdom when they detained a tanker with Iranian oil in the Strait of Gibraltar, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov stated.

"Arguments cited by the Iranian side to explain its actions are much more convincing than vague references to the European Union’s sanction law that were used by the Gibraltar authorities with the United Kingdom’s backing at the moment of the arrest of a Panama-flagged tanker carrying Iranian oil," Ryabkov said on Sunday.

"Iran’s arguments are much more right than those of Gibraltar and London who are indulging in piracy. Iran is taking care of the ecology in the Strait of Hormuz," he added.

シリア北西部で67人死亡 ロシア軍、反体制派拠点を空爆か
 シリア人権監視団(英国)は22日、シリアの反体制派の最後の拠点、北西部イドリブ県で空爆があり、少なくとも67人が死亡したと発表した。市場や住宅地が狙われたとみられ、市民が多数巻き込まれた。死傷者は増える恐れがある。
監視団はロシア軍が空爆したとしているが、ロシア側は否定している。
 空爆は反体制派を支援するトルコとロシアが昨年合意にこぎつけた非武装地帯(DMZ)に集中したもよう。シリアのアサド政権側は4月以降、イドリブ県や周辺への攻撃を激化させている。(共同)

・・・引用終わり・・・

「イドリブ県で空爆があり、少なくとも67人が死亡した」
「市場や住宅地が狙われたとみられ、市民が多数巻き込まれ」
「反体制派を支援するトルコ」
「非武装地帯(DMZ)に集中した」
がポイントです。

「反体制派を支援するトルコ」という記述は正しい。「非武装地帯(DMZ)」の取り決めに従わず、ここに戦闘員や武器を集中配置したのはテロリスト側。テロリストがここに出てきたところをシリア軍とロシア軍が空爆しています。

「市場や住宅地が狙われたとみられ、市民が多数巻き込まれ」というのは、あきらかに不正確な記述。テロリストの支配する地域から住民は逃げだしている。住民が多い住宅地をシリアが空爆することはない。

上の記事は、なかなか上手に書けています。全体として他の機関の発表・メディア情報を引用して書かれていますが、下線部の記述は根拠が不明。新聞記者は、このように事実とウソを入り交ぜて一定の印象を与える文章を書くのが仕事です。記事全般がそうです。

新聞記者が真実を伝える仕事をしているなどというのは、「常識のウソ」。それをやっているのは、独立ジャーナリストのごく一部の人たちだけ。それでは食っていけない。新聞記者と付き合ったことがありますか? ビジネスなどで付き合わざるを得ないなら仕方ないですけど、非常に打算的、功利主義的な人たちで良き友人ではない。

普段シリアのことなどを取り上げない日本のメディアが冒頭のような記事を流すのは、どこかから依頼があるのだと思います。アルジャジーラも同様な記事を載せており、敗色強いテロリストとその支援者の要請でまずシリア人権監視団(英国)がネタを流し、それを受けてMSMが取り上げて流布するという仕組みです。

イドリブのテロリスト、アルヌスラなどの凶悪なテロリストが多いのですが、風前の灯だという状況の現れです。

‘No sorties in the area’: Moscow says reports on deadly Idlib airstrike are ‘fake’
No Russian jet has flown a combat sortie over the Idlib district in Syria, Moscow has said. The defense ministry was responding to allegations by “UK- and US-funded White Helmets” that civilians were killed in a Russian airstrike.

The alleged attack targeted the town of Maaret al-Numan, it’s been claimed. Dubbing the information “fake,” the ministry said “the Russian Air Force hadn’t carried out any missions in this part of Syria.”

Previously, an array of media outlets reported that at least 19 people were killed and several dozen injured in an attack on a wholesale vegetable market in the jihadi-held Idlib province. The reports cited the notorious White Helmets and the UK-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.

Idlib remains the last pocket of Islamist resistance within Syria, after large swaths of land were liberated either by military force or through negotiations with militants. Various jihadist groups hold ground there, including the Al-Qaeda-linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS, formerly known as Al-Nusra Front).

Russia has teamed up with Turkey to introduce a full ceasefire in all of Idlib province, but so far to no avail. As recently as May, Russian military reported that insurgents hiding out in Idlib had fired more than a dozen missiles at Khmeimim airbase, all of which were intercepted mid-air.

Idlib: Tens of Foreign Terrorists Killed, 5 Militant Centers Destroyed in Russian-Syrian Airstrikes
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian and Syrian air forces destroyed five key centers of the Turkistani Party terrorist group in joint airstrikes in Southwestern Idlib, killing tens of terrorists, the Arabic-language media outlets reported.

The Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted a military source as saying that the Russian and Syrian fighter jets in a joint nightly military operation pounded 20 times the military positions and movements of the Turkistani Party terrorist group in the city of Jisr al-Shoghour in Southwestern Idlib.

The source noted that five centers of the terrorists were destroyed during the attack and at least 40 terrorists were killed and wounded.

Meantime, the Syrian Army troops engaged in fierce clashes with the terrorists in al-Sarmanieh region near Jisr al-Shoghour in Southwestern Idlib.

In a relevant development on Wednesday, a sum of 6 command centers and an arms depot as well as military equipment of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) had been destroyed in joint airstrikes by Russian and Syrian air forces in Hama and Idlib provinces.

The Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik News Agency quoted a military source as saying that the Russian and Syrian fighter jets in their continued raids pounded the terrorist groups' military positions in the towns of Khan Sheikhoun, Tarmala, Kafar Ain and the surroundings of Jisr al-Shoghour in Southern and Southwestern Idlib as well as the towns of al-Hawijeh and al-Hawash in Northwestern Hama.

The source noted that during the attacks, six command posts of Tahrir al-Sham and Turkistani Party terrorists as well as an arms depot and military base of Chechen terrorists were destroyed.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the Syrian and Russian air forces conducted several joint military operations against the terrorists’ military positions and command centers in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib, inflicting heavy losses on the militants.

The Arabic-language website of Russian Sputnik news agency quoted a military source as saying that the Russian and Syrian fighter jets attacked the military positions of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at and Islamic Turkistani Party terrorist groups several times in Khan Sheikhoun, Ariha, Ma’aret al-Numan and Jisr al-Shoghour in Western Idlib and their centers inside the city of Idlib.

The source reiterated that several command centers of Tahrir al-Sham and Turkistani Party terrorists were destroyed during the attack and over 100 foreign terrorists were killed and tens more were wounded.

He also noted that the joint airstrikes on the military positions of Tahrir al-Sham and Jeish al-Izzaeh in Kafar Zita and al-Latamineh in Northern Hama left several command centers, operation room, gatherings and military operations destroyed.

Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Morasseloun News Website quoted battlefield sources as saying that at least 71 terrorists were killed in a recent foiled attack on al-Hamamiat town in Northern Hama and over 115 of them were also wounded.
