The UN building in New York City.
-UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon issued a press release that he will be taking a working holiday due to the rise of global terrorism. During the first days of this holiday Ban Ki Moon has called for the formation of the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO). A UN counterpart to the legal force in the world - the International Criminal Court. It will have broad policing powers to act in nations that sign up to the Coalition. Analysts predict countries which have limited counter-terrorism capabilities will be eager to join the coalition. The main focus of UNATOC will be to prepare member nations against terrorism and to help improve their policing, and ability to act. The creation of UNATCO will be put to a vote in Q2 2010.

Muslim Militia members carrying out revenge on a Christian church.
-January- Since last week, according to Human Rights Watch, 364 Muslims have been killed in north-central Nigeria. Christians have been on a rampage against Muslims. Thousands have fled their homes. Shops and homes numbering 1,000 are said to have been destroyed in an inferno. It is claimed that 150 bodies have been found in wells. The local Catholic Archbishop, Ignatius Kaigama, has told the BBC that the real cause of the violence is not religion but rather "the struggle for ethnic and political superiority" in the city of Jos.

-Cabinda War: FLEC perpetrated an attack on the Togo national football team, leaving 3 people dead and 9 wounded.

-France makes major investments in Algerian oil in an effort to increase the energy security of France. The Algerian government has announced it is looking forward to future investments.

-Chadian Civil War: An agreement for the restoration of harmony between Chad and Sudan, signed January, 2010, marked the end of a five-year war. The fix in relations led to the Chadian rebels from Sudan returning home, the opening of the border between the two countries after seven years of closure.

-Houthi Insurgency in Yemen: The Houthis chose the Iraqi cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani to mediate in their political standoff with the Yemeni government and to find a solution to the conflict. This choice was criticized by Saudi cleric Mohammad al-Arifi, a preacher at Riyadh’s central mosque, who dismissed al-Sistani as "an infidel and debauched." The remarks by the Saudi cleric were considered extremely insulting by Shi’as around the world, causing major outrage in some Shi'a dominant countries like Iraq, Iran and Lebanon. Operation Blow to the Head was launched in an attempt by the government to capture the city of Sa'adah. Security forces claimed they killed 34 and arrested at least 25 Houthis, as well as killing al-Qaeda in Yemen leader Abdullah al-Mehdar in the next two weeks of fighting. Afterwards the Houthis offered a truce. Houthi leader Abdul Malek al-Houthi said they would stop fighting to prevent further civilian casualties and the withdrawal was a gesture for peace, but warned that if the Saudis were to continue fighting the Houthis would go over into open warfare. A Saudi general announced that the Houthis had stopped fighting and were not on Saudi land anymore and that in response the Saudis also stopped fighting saying, "The battle has ended by God's will." But the Saudi king denied the Houthis had withdrawn saying they were forced out, and declared military victory for the end of their conflict with the Houthis. There have however been allegations that the Saudis launched new air raids, thus breaking the truce. The Yemeni government offered a conditional cease-fire. The cease-fire had five conditions which were the re-establishment of safe passage on roads, the surrender of mountain strongholds, a full withdrawal from all local authority property, the return of all military and public equipment seized during hostilities and the release of all the detained civilians and soldiers. Abdel-Malek al-Houthi released a video wherein he blamed the government for the recent round of fighting but said that: "Nevertheless, and for the fourth time, I announce our acceptance of the [government's] five conditions [for an end to the conflict] after the aggression stops ... the ball is now in the other party's court." After the truce was accepted, however, there were still some clashes between the Houthis and both Saudi and Yemeni forces. Therefore, the Yemeni government rejected the truce and launched a new round of attacks, killing 24 people.

-February- Police in Turkey have dug up the body of a teenage girl with large amounts of soil in her lungs and stomach, telling them that she was buried alive. Her hands were tied behind her back. The girl's father and grandfather are to be tried for her murder. The two are reported as having adhered to an old tribal tradition: killing the girl in order to bring honor back to their family. The father is reported as saying: "She has male friends. We're uneasy about that." The incident took place in the mostly Kurdish town of Kahta. It is described as a stronghold of the Naksibendi Islamic sect, banned by Ataturk in 1925. But the sect has revived in recent years. The Turkish people, mostly Muslim, are reported to support fully the criminal proceedings against the girl's murderers.

-The Syrian government forms the "National Association for the Advancement of Syrian Kurdistan" to provide better representation for Syrian Kurds, to advocate for their interests and provide better coordination of infrastructure building in the region. Many Kurds see the formation of the NAASK as an empty promise, recalling the Qamishli riots of 2004. Many Kurds in Syria seek the formation of a federal state with a democratic system of government, something none of them believe President Assad would ever agree to.

-The Iranian police continue to arrest identified members of the IIPF. It is believed there had been heavy use of informants in situations where neighbors are outing neighbors. Some mid level IIPF leaders have been tracked down and arrested by the Quds force harming the organization for the IIPF. 5 units of the Iranian Army are also deployed in Tehran as martial law is proclaimed. Protesters are ordered to disperse and warned the remaining protesters will be facing extreme consequences. Many die hard supporters of the IIPF remain as the Iranian military uses live ammunition to disperse them. 40 are killed, 134 are wounded in what is being dubbed the Tehran massacre. IIPF loses a unit.

-South Yemen Insurgency: Riots in al-Hawta city, Lahij province left one dead and 7 injured. According to Hawta security director Ali Ammar: "Separatist elements blocked the roads, opened fire randomly and hurled a grenade at a security patrol, killing a citizen and injuring others. Tareq al-Fadhli announced the next phase of the South Yemeni uprising would begin with mass protests and civil disobedience campaign. The man who died was a protester and another 5 protesters were arrested. However, in a separate clashes armed separatists killed a soldier and wounded three in Shabwa province.

It would appear that the helicopter was downed by Iranian anti-aircraft weaponry. It has been reported that all but 2 members of the Chinese team are dead. During the attempted raid firefights breakout between the IIPF and police in Tehran. The IIPF begins to target Anti-air emplacements that have been established amongst civilian buildings.

-Syria reaches out to Libya, Egypt, Pakistan, Albania, Indonesia, Tajikistan, Somalia to discuss trade and cooperation to improve the standard of living for Muslims across the world. Albania and Indonesia say they are uninterested at this time. Tajikistan, Egypt and Somalia have expressed interest in increased trade relations. Pakistan and Libya have expressed interest in cooperation regarding increasing the standard of living for Muslims throughout the world.

-As it stands now, it appears that a treaty of cooperation between Syria and the DPRK has fallen through. There was no response from Pyongyang after President Assad announced the treaty. The delay has left President Assad looking ineffective to some, and only further injures the DPRK's reputation when it comes to foreign relations.

-PJAK separatists continue to wreak havoc in Western Iran, slowly taking control of local hamlets as the Iranian government is focused elsewhere in the country. Kurdish separatists also begin causing problems in Northern Iraq and threaten further issues in Turkey and Syria. Dreams of a free Kurdistan come along with the growing Kurdish rebellion in Iran.

Metropolitan Police Officer equipment proposals which have been approved by congress. Other national Police Departments are to follow suit.


-January- For fourteen days the top news story in the US is an al-Qaeda operative traveling on an airplane and the bomb in his underpants failing to explode. He is a Nigerian who met other al-Qaeda people in Yemen, described a the latest failed state. Machines that do full body scans are being put into operation at airports, where longer waits and more intense searches have been taking place.

-The FBI has issued a warrant for the arrest of Solid Snake. US congress has also declared Philanthropy a terrorist organization after the successful escape of Solid Snake from FBI custody.

-US Congress also passes new legislature that allows the military to sell equipment and weapons to the FBI and Police departments around the country.

A stronger version of the Patriot Act has also been proposed that will also give DARPA, the FBI, NSA, Homeland Security, and FEMA increased powers to work on terrorism prevention and also terrorist hunting. It would appear that such an act has been accepted.

-Hope is being expressed in developing Haiti's garment industry. Haiti's population growth is well above average – at 2 percent per year. The population is something like 18 times what it was at independence in the beginning of the 1800s. Haiti is one of the more densely populated places in the world, with only 70 percent of the people working, where imports ruin the balance of payments. Haiti will be competing with the garment industries of China, Vietnam, India, Honduras and elsewhere. Haiti needs a better ratio between its population numbers and its agricultural production. But putting hope in manufacturing, Bill Clinton speaks of an opportunity for investors and for "the people of Haiti to have a more secure and a more broadly shared, prosperous future" in a program of garment manufacturing.

-Minutes after the above posting a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, centered ten miles southwest of Haiti's major population center, Port-au-Prince. Lacking a fire department, fires raged unattended. Thousands are said to be dead. Greater population density makes more death. CNN says about one-third of the population (three-million) is affected.

-Pope Benedict XVI announces that he gives his "prayers to the Lord for the victims of [the Haiti] catastrophe" and that he is "imploring God to bring them consolation and relief in their suffering."

-On the disaster in Haiti, Claire Shipman and Devin Dwyer write that "The earthquake in Haiti is a tragedy of such gargantuan proportion that it's natural to wonder how – or why – any God, if there is a God, could allow it." The Reverend Pat Robertson enters his own opinion on the quake and the supernatural. He considers the earthquake tragic and sad, no question about it. But he describes it as the result of a couple of centuries ago when the Haitians "got together and swore a pact to the Devil." Competing comments that connect the disaster in Haiti with humanity being responsible for what it creates are difficult to find. Right now it is emergency relief and appearing to care that preoccupies the minds of people with influence and power. Meanwhile, some who don't put their hope in godly interventions believe that unless humanity stops setting itself up rather than being proactive regarding nature's forces, big disasters will continue in Haiti and the world in general.

-February- On the 18th, A. Joseph Stack III, an amateur pilot, crashed his small airplane into a building in Austin, Texas, that housed the Internal Revenue Service.

-The President of Toyota Motor Corporation appears before the US Congress Oversight and Government Reform Committee. This gives the Toyota president an opportunity to speak to the US public. But, with US congressmen never doing anything for show or self-promotion, we in the United States don't expect serious legislation as a product of the hearings.

-March- A mob of Cubans find joy in heckling "Ladies in White," who march to protest the continued imprisonment of 50 or so dissidents. From among the mob comes the justification: "They are against the revolution and we will defend the revolution until the end." That the revolution is so shaky that it is jeopardized by a few women in white remains unknown.

Sebastian Pinera, President of Chile
-January- Conservative billionaire Sebastian Pinera is elected President of Chile – the first popularly elected conservative in over 50 years. He will replace moderate socialist and professed agnostic Michelle Bachelet, president since March 2006, by law serving only one four-year term. Pinera promises law-and-order and to boost the economy. And he promises to continue Bachelet's popular social policies. Presumably this includes her pension reform and social protections for women and children. As in Britain, conservatives have not been eager to overturn popular leftist social legislation.

-April- Public Broadcasting's News Hour reports a colonial-like arrangement in which foreign investors are buying land in Ethiopia. Local farmers lack the technology to fully exploit the land. (Ethiopian farmers are still plowing with oxen.) Food from the land will feed people abroad. Ethiopian farmers are not benefiting from their government's land policy. The head of Ethiopia's government, Meles Zenawi, has been in power since 1992. He took power with a Marxist Party that was part of the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front coalition.

-Sudanese nomadic conflict: At least 55 people were killed in an attack in South Darfur between the Sudan People's Liberation Army in South Sudan and another unidentified, disputed party, thought to be either the Rizeigat or Sudan People's Armed Forces.

-RSADO and the ENSF launched a coordinated attack on several Eritrean military camps in the south of the country. Both rebel groups announced in a joint statement that they had briefly taken control over the camps and seized weapons and military intelligence. The attack occurred at around 3:00AM local time and rebels were reported to have held it for three more hours until government forces returned with reinforcements. A total of 11 government soldiers were killed and 20 were injured. No rebel casualties were reported. A RSADO spokesman put the army death toll higher at 18 killed and a number of supplies captured during the "surprise" onslaught.

-May- Afriqiyah Airways Flight 771 crashes at runway at Tripoli International Airport in Libya, killing 103 of the 104 people on board.

-In Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina, the disc jockey who rode to power in March 2009 with the backing of the military, announces that "in the interest of the nation" he will not be a candidate in the election later this year. South Africa and France were among the powers that disapproved of his move. Rajoelina has not been able to do what he wanted to do. France, the former ruler of Madagascar, says Rajoelina's decision would put Madagascar on a path to returning to constitutional order.

-June- French forces in Chad are directed against Janjaweed forces. The work to patrol and clear hamlets in the East of Chad where Janjaweed forces are most active. French Army units, Special forces and Chadian military units confront Janjaweed forces over an FOB in Eastern Chad. French and Chadian units retreat from the base leaving it to the Janjaweed fighters. French Special forces blow up the base with Janajaweed fighters inside killing a unit, and subduing the Janjaweed fighters for the time being.

-The French government proposes the creation of the African Development Program(ADP). The ADP is to receive economic loans and funds from France. Economic cooperation has be sought in return. The French also vow to deploy their military to any signatory nation free of charge to help establish stability. A 10 credit award for the founding nations is announced. France pledges at least 1000 credits of aid to the nations that accept this proposal. Chad, Tunisia, Mali,Niger, Central African Republic, Cameroon,Gabo and Madagascar sign. Nigeria also signs after the promise of a major French investment into their oil industry.

-Dijiboutan-Etrian boarder dispute: Djibouti and Eritrea agreed to refer the matter to Qatar for mediation, a move that was praised by the African Union. In March 2016, 4 Djiboutian prisoners of war captured during the border war were released by Eritrea eight years after the conflict.

Asia
Fighting Continues on the Cambodian-Thai boarder.
-April- Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev flees the country amid fierce anti-government riots in the capital, Bishkek.

-The South Korean Airforce recruits 4 air units.

-Naxalite-Maoist Insurgency: Naxalite rebels killed 76, consisting of 74 paramilitary personnel of the CRPF and two policemen. Fifty others were wounded in the series of attacks on security convoys in Dantewada district in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh. The attack resulted in the biggest loss of life security forces have suffered since launching a large-scale offensive against the rebels.

-In Kyrgyzstan, anti-government demonstrators in three cities seem to have overwhelmed government forces after a day of bloody violence. They are protesting the arrest of opposition leaders, rising prices and what they perceive to be corruption. An opposition leader, Roza Otunbayeva, is now described as Kyrgyzstan's president and announces that an interim government, a people's government, has taken power and will create a new constitution.

-Kyrgyzstan's former president, Bakiyev, is in the city of Osh, where he has his greatest support. He admits he has lost control of security forces. That suggests that his position is hopeless, but he still claims to be the president. There is anger among anti-Bakieyev people that forces were shooting to kill demonstrators, hitting them in the head rather than the legs. Shop owners expect more trouble. They fear people flooding into the capital and are defending their homes with rifles. Their shops have already been emptied. Bakiyev's political party dominates parliament. It appears that people were willing to risk their lives rather than wait for elections to replace an unpopular government because they had no confidence that elections would be honest. Bakiyev's landslide reelection in July 2009 is widely considered to have been unfair. Writes the New York Times, "Prior to those elections, journalists were arrested, prosecuted and even killed." And election observers noted ballot stuffing, intimidation and media bias.

-More unrest In Thailand. Supporters of Thaksin Shinawatra, driven from the office by a military coup in 2006, have converged on the capital, demanding elections and democracy. They view the government of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva as illegitimate. Prime Minister Abhisit declares a state of emergency and, in an address to the nation, speaks of the need for law and order as if that is what he represents.

-In Thailand the conflict with the "Red Shirts" remains tense. The Red Shirts, according to the BBC, have support among the rural poor and they have the support of "some urban intellectuals who want to see more democracy and less military influence in the country." The Red Shirts are occupying portions of the capital, Bangkok. Against them are the "Yellow Shirts," a loose group of "royalists, businessmen and the urban middle class," and against them is the monarchy. The hero of the Red Shirts is Thaksin Shinawatra, who was overthrown by the military in September, 1946. The Red Shirts see today's government as illegitimate and want new elections. The government does not want to give in to Red Shirt demands.

-15 reserve PLA units have been mobilized, signaling the largest mobilization of the Chinese military since the Korean War.

-Cambodian-Thai boarder dispute: Cambodian and Thai forces opened fire along their border about 150 kilometers (93 mi) west of Preah Vihear. The clash lasted for about 15 minutes, but there were no reports of casualties. Cambodian Defence Ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat was reported as saying that "While our troops were patrolling the border, the Thai soldiers opened fire at them". So our troops fired back." He added that troops from both sides fired rockets and grenades as well as rifles, but calm returned after a meeting between Cambodian and Thai military commanders in the area. The Thai military confirmed the shoot-out. "It was a misunderstanding and nobody was injured in the clash," said a Thai Army officer who asked not to be named.

-May- Protests in Bangkok, Thailand, end with a bloody military crackdown, killing 91 and injuring more than 2,100.

-Naxalite-Maoist Insurgency: May the derailment of a Kolkata–Mumbai night train killed at least 150 persons. Police alleged that Maoists had caused the derailment by removing a short (46 cm or 1½ft) piece of track, but the Maoists denied this. On 17 May, a Naxalite landmine destroyed a bus in Dantewada district, killing up to 44 people including several Special Police Officers (SPOs) and civilians.

-The South Korean Military begins building fortifications complete with air strips and harbor facilities on the Western Islands of Baengnyeongdo and Daecheong-ro.

-In downtown Bangkok, troops fire tear gas and bullets. Red-shirt protesters respond with stones, slingshots and homemade rockets. It is said that 18 have been killed and 141 wounded. Government forces are reported to be tightening their cordon around the protesters.

- Air India Express Flight 812 overshoots the runway at Mangalore International Airport in India, killing 158 and leaving 8 survivors.

- The 2010 Ahmadiyya mosques massacre in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan, killed 94 people during Friday prayers at two mosques.

-China's richest businessman until recently, Huang Guangyu, is found guilty of bribery, insider trading and illegal business practices. He is sentenced to 14 years in prison.

-In Bangkok, Thailand, the army moves with full force to clear red-shirt protesters from the city center. Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva describes it as returning "the country to peace and order." The protesters disperse and set fires.

-The New York Times reports that in Bangkok a small group of exhausted protesters "filed out of a Buddhist temple where they had taken refuge, bewildered and frightened, some in tears."

-4 US Navy units stationed in the Mediterranean as part of UNMI are sent to the US Naval base on Guam after the crippling of the Iranian Navy.

-Debt in Greece is being described as threatening financial stability in Europe and economic recovery in the United States. Debt in Spain, Portugal and Ireland add to the uncertainty. Spain's bond rating has dropped from AA+ to AA. The BBC says that Greece has been living beyond its means in recent years, and it speaks of "widespread tax evasion." Pessimists foresee a financial crash for Europe similar to the melt-down in Argentina at the turn of the century. US industrial (the Dow) was up 53 points today.

Today they are striking against their government's austerity program. Three have died. Greece's Communist Party has joined the strike.

- Today Greece's parliament passed a tough austerity package, while a strike and demonstrations showed signs of fizzle.

-The Syrian government enacts a series of laws known as the "Sallahudin Acts". The acts are as follows: . Restriction is lifted on Syrian Kurds to become citizens and offers a pathway to citizenship on the condition that each applicant swears "An oath of Loyalty to Allah, to Syria, and to the people of Al-Sham." Special Priority is given by the NAASK and the Government to those who had their citizenship stripped and their descendants. 2. Restrictions on their the Kurdish language and on their cultural customs are lifted. 3. Ethnic Discrimination against Kurds will be forbidden at all levels of society. Western analysts believe the acts were passed as a preventive measure to limit the growing Kurdish nationalism surfacing in the Middle East. Kurds in Syria welcome the acts, but many remain cautious with placing too much trust in the government.

-The Syrian government has begun the process of modernizing all outdated and defective electrical equipment in Syria to improve the quality of distribution of electricity.

-War in North West Pakistan: senior al-Qaeda operative Ilyas Kashmiri conducted a series of coordinated terrorist attacks on the Pakistan Navy presence in Northern and Southern contingents. This included attacks on high naval officials of the Pakistan Navy in Karachi, first attacking their bus near the Navy bases. TTP attacked the Mehran Naval Base, killing up to 10 naval officers, wounding 30 others, and destroying two naval reconnaissance aircraft, during the attack. In response, the navy's SSG(N) launched its largest offensive efforts since the 1971 operations, and managed to control and secure the base after a massive shootout. Operationally resulting in tactical success, the navy's counter offensive killed all the militants and ring leaders behind these operations. Kashmiri was widely suspected in the Mehran operation.

-U.S. and Iraqi forces killed Abu Ayyub al-Masri the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq in a joint American and Iraqi operation near Tikrit, Iraq. The coalition forces believed al-Masri to be wearing a suicide vest and proceeded cautiously. After the lengthy exchange of fire and bombing of the house, the Iraqi troops stormed inside and found two women still alive, one of whom was al-Masri's wife, and four dead men, identified as al-Masri, Abu Abdullah al-Rashid al-Baghdadi, an assistant to al-Masri, and al-Baghdadi's son. A suicide vest was indeed found on al-Masri's corpse, as the Iraqi Army subsequently stated. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki announced the killings of Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Ayyub al-Masri at a news conference in Baghdad and showed reporters photographs of their bloody corpses. "The attack was carried out by ground forces which surrounded the house, and also through the use of missiles," Mr Maliki said. "During the operation computers were seized with e-mails and messages to the two biggest terrorists, Osama bin Laden and [his deputy] Ayman al-Zawahiri", Maliki added. U.S. forces commander Gen. Raymond Odierno praised the operation. "The death of these terrorists is potentially the most significant blow to al‑Qaeda in Iraq since the beginning of the insurgency", he said. "There is still work to do for Iraq's security forces, but this is a significant step forward in ridding Iraq of terrorists."

-June- World News writes the following headline: "Gaza flotilla attack: A week that changed Middle East politics." It refers to Israel's interception of six ships in international waters on May 30. Israel considers itself at war with Hamas, believing that Hamas is at war with it. Israel believes that this gives it the right to interdict ships in international waters (as the US did in 1962 regarding Russian ships heading to Cuba with missiles). The flotilla had armed men aboard, and Israel sees the flotilla as having been organized with provocation in mind. Turkish citizens were involved, and Turkey complains. In the words of its foreign minister, "No country has the right to touch our citizens in international waters." He adds that Turkey "cannot tolerate [Israel's] blockade of Gaza."

-June- Helen Thomas announces her retirement from journalism. On May 27 she said of Israel, "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine ... they should go home [to] Poland, Germany ... America and everywhere else."
