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.

A French Legionnaire engages Janjaweed Fighters in Eastern Chad.


-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.

-The Somali government has agreed to allow Syrian technicians and agricultural specialists into the country to work on a small scale irrigation project on the Jubba River similar to the Syrian Euphrates Project.

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." They faced a line of female police officers who told them, 'Don’t be afraid. You’re safe now. Have a safe journey home."

Nearly 80 are reported dead so far and about 1,000 persons wounded.

-Kyrgyz attacks on Uzbeks in southern Kyrgyzstan, including burning their homes, are described in the NYT as resentment over Uzbek prosperity and Uzbeks as owners of many businesses (not unlike the resentment against the Chinese in the Philippines, Indonesia). Also, "ethnic Uzbeks have supported the new interim government" and Kyrgyz in the south "have remained loyal" to Kurmanbek Bakiyev, the president deposed in April.

- Police in Delhi, India, arrest a man and his brother for the murder of the man's 19-year-old daughter and her male friend – an honor killing, that included binding the hands and feet of the two, electrocuting them and beating them with iron rods.

The BBC writes that correspondents say the killings – "long a taboo subject in India – are now being reported more often."

-With the looting and burning of homes and the attacks against Uzbeks, according to a report on the NewsHour today, there were "many cases of raped women."

-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. The US dollar of course is up relative to the Euro.

-May- The euro zone and the International Monetary Fund agree to a €110 billion bailout package for Greece. The package involves sharp Greek austerity measures.

-Young French men and women begin questioning France's part in the UNMI no-fly zone over Iran. Some believe that the complete destruction of Iran's Air force and crippling of its navy was a step to far.

-Unable to stimulate their economy because of massive debt combined with new austerity measures will create hardship for Greeks. Many are saying that for the Greeks the party is over.

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.

-Iranian Conflict: Clashes continue between government troops and democratic protesters. Zastava assault rifles and sniper rifles are found among dead protesters.

-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."

-July- France pledges 100 credits to African Development Fund, earning France a growing reputation in Africa.

-China has plans to build an 8 billion dollar oil refinery in Nigeria and to cover 80 percent of the construction cost. Nigeria welcomes the investment.

-August- Due to the Chadian Civil War coming to a close France begins to re-deployed its units from Chad by sending 2 air units to its carriers in the Gulf of Oman. 1 ground unit is remaining in Chad. 2 Other units are being placed on a rapid response detail as part of France's new Africa Command to provide military support for ADF signatories.

Chinese marines prepare for conflict on the Korean peninsula along the Chinese-DPRK boarder.


-July- Due to the Democratic Party's inability to keep its election promises, December 2009 illegal campaign donations scandal, and the issues that much of the population have with what was viewed as a spineless foreign policy compared to the Liberal Democratic Party's focus on a stronger Japan, Hatoyama faces a vote of no confidence and resigns on 2nd July 2010, triggering another General Election. Sadukazu Tanigaki, leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, ascends to office.

-Japan, Australia, and South Korea found the Pacific Security Treaty Organisation. It is a military alliance modeled after NATO but encompassing the Pacific. Citing Chinese mass mobilization and the threat of DPRK nuclear strike, member nations opted to create the defensive alliance. The founding nations invite the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea to join. All countries accept the invite, the exception being Vietnam. PSTO headquarters is based in Singapore. Funds are also promised to the invited member states. The formation of the PSTO angers the governments of China and the DPRK. The DPRK issues a threat toward Seoul, promising that the city will be leveled in response to news of South Korea joining the PSTO.

-Cambodian-Thai boarder dispute: One Cambodian soldier was killed along the Cambodian-Thai border while another was wounded. A local military commander stated that the soldier's death was a result of clashes provoked by Thai troops. Pok Sophal, a commander for Oddar Meanchey's Trapaing Prasat district, stated that, "We had an appointment for the meeting [between the two sides], and when we were walking, they opened fire at our soldiers". The incident continues the pattern of armed clashes in the region. It has come to light that the Thai government has hired No Alert PMC to train it's forces which are now mobilizing. Cambodia likewise has begun to mobilize forces. It is assumed that Cambodia will be seeking Chinese advisers in this worsening situation along the Cambodian-Thai boarder. Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Canada have called for restraint.

-The South Korean military mobilizes all land and air force reserves to participate in "Tiger Guardian", an exercise aimed at meeting aggression from the DPRK. The massive concentration of forces near the boarder, and the mobilization of so many troops causes an enormous amount of buzz in the DPRK. Kim Jong Il announces that the Japanese backed ROK is gearing up to conquer and subdue the North. He compared it as a looming threat of occupation, reminiscent to that of WW2 under the Empire of Japan. It would appear that the PRC is readying its forces to support the DPRK should any action take place on the Korean Peninsula. China has sent 25 units to the Chinese-DPRK boarder, and are working to mobilize 20 reserve land units.

-6 ground units, air force units, and naval units of the Japanese Defense force also join in Tiger Guardian. Australia dedicates 6 land units, 4 air units, and 4 naval units as well. Their involvement puts the DPRK on high alert, causing them to mobilize 10 of their ground reserves. China also calls back its Naval units from the Middle East and stations them off the coast of South Korea.

-August- In China's state-run newspaper a set of articles describe the country's successful economic development as turning into "national arrogance." As a part of Marxist internationalism, Communist Party intellectuals around the world have traditionally been opposed in theory to all forms of chauvinism, especially national chauvinism.

-Japan activates all 9 units of their air reserves and 4 ground reserves.

-Naxalite-Maoist Insurgency: rebels ambushed a joint paramilitary-police team in Bihar, killing 10, wounding 10 more, taking 4 prisoners and robbing more than 35 automatic rifles from the state forces. The Naxalites later freed 3 of the policemen after Naxal leader Kishenji met with worried family members

-The South Korean Air Force completes its formation of a Strategic bombing unit. South Korea and Australia also complete their modern Air superiority fighter programs( ASF L4 completed).

-September- In the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), a monarchy like succession appears to be taking place. State media announces that the son of leader Kim Jong-ll, Kim Jong-un, has been named vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the ruling Workers' Party. Kim Jong-un is said to be about 27 years old and is already a four-star general.

-Tajikistan Insurgency: more than 25 Tajik soldiers were killed in an ambush by suspected Islamist fighters, allied with the Islamic movement of Uzbekistan. The soldiers were part of a 75-man convoy moving through the Rasht Valley, in eastern Tajikistan. They were ambushed while searching for members of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan who previously escaped from a detention prison in Dushanbe on 25 August. The military column was ambushed by gunmen around midday local time, while passing through the mountainous Rasht Valley, approximately 250 km (150 miles) east of the capital. The column sustained heavy fire from machine-guns and grenade launchers, in the mountains from above. Initial reports indicated that 40 soldiers were killed but the Tajik minister of defense denied this. Five Tajik officers were among the dead. None of the attackers were reported to have been killed or wounded.

-July- Elizabeth II, reigning queen of the UK, Canada, Australia and thirteen other sovereign states, praises Canada's commitment to preserving basic freedoms. Many Canadians are the descendants of colonists who remained loyal to the British monarchy.
-Russia paid off 116 worth of deficit.

-Armenian-Azerbaijan War: 2 Armenian Units continue their advancing through Azerbaijan, stopping at Agdash. The advance has come at a cost however as it seems that the Armenian forces are stretching themselves to thin. Outdated T72's and other Soviet era equipment suffer from various equipment issues. The Azerbaijani air force pounds Armenian armored columns. Azerbaijan forces seem to be drawing the Armenians deeper into the country on purpose. The Armenians voice concern and ask for Russian support against Azerbaijan. Weather they get it is a different question entirely. The Armenians lose 1 land unit in the fighting.

-Germany invests into renewable energy resources within Greece. Wind resources are being exploited to cut down of the fossil fuels being used by the population. Energy efficient building and water resource expansion are also seeing investments from Germany. Greeks are benefiting from the investments with the creation of new jobs. However from a purely financial perspective many EU states see the investments from Germany as risky given the current financial status of Greece and their economic woes.

-France also commits to a large public spending program. New nuclear power plants are planned to completely eliminate fossil fuel energy generation. An effort is also made to expand rural and inner city broadband access as well as free public wifi. Funds are also put towards improving the education facilities of the banlieues, France’s most underprivileged neighborhoods

-Germany also gifts a stimulus of 20c to the government of Greece.

- The first 24-hour flight by a solar-powered plane is completed by the Solar Impulse.

- Slovenia becomes the 32nd member of the OECD.

-France forms a 2 air units to replace those lost over Iran.

- WikiLeaks, an online publisher of anonymous, covert, and classified material, leaks to the public over 90,000 internal reports about the United States-led involvement in the War in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010.

-August- Germany begins upgrading its own electrical grid to cut energy costs. Energy efficient building techniques are also focused on.

- Along with the unusual weather around the world are record temperatures in Russia. Reports describe nearly 600 wildfires that are still spreading and have claimed 50 lives. Bloggers in Russia are outraged and blame government for inadequate responses and lapsed fire-fighting readiness. Some speak of the past when government was better prepared.

-September- For Greece's government, paying its debt is made more difficult by an economy that declined 1.8 percent in this year's second quarter. The government's austerity measures have contributed to the decline. People are not spending money. Today, Europe's stock markets responded negatively, with bank stock declining.

-The French Navy completes formation a naval unit.

-In elections in Sweden, Prime Minister Fredrick Reinfeldt's center-right majority coalition appears able to return to power. But a swing in support for the "anti-immigrant" Sweden Democrats erodes the coalition's majority and may result in a hung parliament. Vote for the Liberal Democrats is said to be a protest against the reluctance of mainstream parties to address the issue of immigrants not integrating into Swedish society.

-The Russian military continues increasing its stockpile of metal gears by announcing the creation of 3 more to add to the ranks.

-The British government begins construction on transportation upgrades to railways and roadways to enable growth in commerce.

-July- Heavy monsoon rains begin to cause widespread flooding in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Over 1,600 are killed, and more than one million are displaced by the floods.

-Houthi Insurgency in Yemen: the Houthis warned on their website that the government was preparing for another offensive against the Houthis. They said the government had been digging trenches from the Sana'a to Sa'ada. They claimed the army was trying to amass servicemen in villages and that soldiers in Amshia Bsfian region were creating an army stronghold on Mount Guide. The report came as the Yemeni government blamed Houthi fighters for recent ethnic clashes which had killed 11 people, including two soldiers, and for the kidnapping of two people in a market. The Houthis have denied these allegations and have claimed that it was the work of the government.

-Houthi Insurgency in Yemen: Clashes broke out between Houthis and members of an army-backed tribe, led by Sheikh Sagheer Aziz, in the region of Souffian. A Houthi commander declared that the clashes had broken out because of Yemeni Army attacks on Houthis and local pro-Houthi tribes. Forty-nine people were reported killed in the clashes, including 20 tribal and 10 Houthi fighters. The Houthis also managed to surround the Yemeni military bases in the region. Over the following days the Yemeni army and pro-government Bin Aziz tribes continued to clash with the Houthis. The government claimed that in the following two days, 20 fighters were killed on each side. A Houthi spokesman denied these claims, stating only three Houthi fighters had been killed in the clashes. Both sides have blamed each other for starting the clashes. The UN expressed great concern about the situation in North Yemen.

War in Afghanistan: Classified documents from the WikiLeaks organization was made public. The documents cover U.S. military incident and intelligence reports from January 2004 to December 2009. Some of these documents included sanitized, and "covered up", accounts of civilian casualties caused by Coalition Forces.

Iranian Conflict: The IIPF continue to struggle against the Iranian Military in Tehran. Even though they are armed with adequate weapons the IIPF visibly lacks training. More often then not skirmishes against the Iranian military are being lost when facing soldiers directly. With Iranian military units concentrating on the IIPF, Kurdish forces establish control over an area of territory in Western Iran. Iranian banks also suffer a cyber attack. Government accounts are targeted and siphoned from. Iranian intelligence trace the source of the breach to Tel Aviv. France continues blockading Iran. The French Navy continues monitoring the Iranian coast for Iranian military activity.

-The Syrian Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform under orders from Assad begin working on the OASIS Project. This Project is designed to address the immediate problem of desertification and soil erosion throughout Syria. A 5 Step Program is created for the most immediate issues. Drainage is improved and the government experimented with Salt Resistant Crops. Groundwater studies are conducted to identify safe yield. Land is reallocated to match its capability, water control structures are to be built, ground cover maintenance is expanded, reforestation of the land will begin and proper control practices will be implemented. Top Priority will be given to the Central part of the Badiah. Legal measures are introduced to discourage the use of harmful cultivation practices while a complete cessation of Grazing and Ploughing is implemented while the source of the issue is located. The area is to become a protected zone. Food trucks and food supplies are shipped to the zone to be sure the people are fed, they are well compensated for their troubles in the form of cash and farming equipment. Legal steps are taken to ensure compliance with modern norms for waste disposal. An awareness campaign in the Urban Areas is launched to encourage recycling.

-Training of Iraq's security forces is being entrusted to two PMC's. Praying Mantis and Raven sword.

-August- Israel becomes the 33rd member of the OECD.

-Iraq War: Insurgents conducted a major attack with at least 12 car bombs simultaneously detonating from Mosul to Basra and killing at least 51. These attacks coincided with the U.S. plans for a withdrawal of combat troops. Poland withdraws its unit from Iraq.

-Iraq War: Ravensword and Mantis PMC's continue to train Iraqs security forces. The PMC's advise the ISF to approach the US regarding modern weaponry. More aircraft and armored vehicles are needed.

-Al Qaida Insurgency in Yemen: The Yemeni army launched a major offensive in the city of Lawdar controlled by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Several militants including local leaders of Al Qaeda were killed during the clashes. Yemeni authorities claimed to regain control of the southern town of Lawdar, a great part of which was in the grip of suspected Al-Qaeda militants during days of clashes with the army.

- Syria proposed a Treaty to the Libyan Government offering to completely eliminate tariffs between Syria and Libya. The move is a step to increase economic integration between the two countries and encourage Syrian entrepreneurs to develop Libyan Infrastructure, primarily health and educational infrastructure.

-September- Pakistan's government counts the dead from recent flooding at 1,710.

-A former associate of Osama bin Laden, Noman Benotman, has written a letter to his old "comrade-in-arms" before 9/11, asking him the following: "What has the 11th September brought to the world except mass killings, occupations, destruction, hatred of Muslims, humiliation of Islam, and a tighter grip on the lives of ordinary Muslims by the authoritarian regimes that control Arab and Muslim states?" Benotman goes on to claim that, "Muslims across the world have rejected your calls for wrongful jihad and the establishment of your so-called 'Islamic state'."

-Al Qaida insurgency in Yemen: a number of militants attacked and took control of the village of Hota in the southern parts of the country, prompting the Army to counter-attack.

-The Israeli government announces completion of the Iron Dome program. The system is designed to intercept and destroy short-range rockets and artillery shells fired from distances of 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) to 70 kilometers (43 mi) away and whose trajectory would take them to a populated area.

-Pakistan, Egypt, and Libya invest in the construction of the Ummah's Museum in Damascus. Construction begins on the museum. It is to house artifacts of the Muslim World's past and will serve to educate our people on the achievements of the Ummah across the world. A special wing will be devoted to Palestine and its struggle for liberation. The museum would seem promising for tourists from Middle Eastern nations and others sympathetic to the Palestinian struggle against Israel.

-The Syrian government de-mobilizes all of its military units.

-Israel invests in the tourism industry within Tel Aviv to draw tourists from around the world. Many Europeans have opted to winter in the city.

-August- The World Health Organization declares the H1N1 influenza pandemic over, saying worldwide flu activity has returned to typical seasonal patterns.

-Cuba is struggling to revive its economy. President Raul Castro announces a future cut in the "overloaded" state payroll and a reduction of state involvement in some areas of the economy. Also more "workers" will be allowed to set up small businesses. In Cuba, the state controls about 90 percent of the economy.

- New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, defends mosque construction in the city two blocks from "Ground Zero." He says that a government "shouldn't be in the business of picking one religion over another," that Muslims have "a right to do it" and that prohibiting it would play into the hands of those hostile to the United States.

United Nations
-January- In the UN, Russia criticizes the war in Korea and French use of its satellite weapon that is armed with kinetic weaponry. Russia claims that such weapons are banned by the outer space treaty. France defends the use of the weapon stating, "Our Anti-Nuclear Defense System is simply that. Designed to preemptively destroy any nuclear facilities deep underground, like those in North Korea. There is no nuclear, chemical, biological or any other payload. And we would like to reiterate that this has only been used to take out North Korean nuclear facilities after their attack." the Russian government, clearly not happy with France, announced that Russia no longer considers SALT or the outer space treaty valid. Germany attempted to mediate but talks have stalled on the subject.

-In regards to the ceasefire proposal drafted for the Korean War, Brazil has failed. No real response from PTSO forces, China or the DPRK was recorded at the proposal.

-January- In Tunisia, protests against unemployment and food prices have spread despite police repressions. A few have died. Muhammad Bouazi died yesterday after having set himself on fire a few days before. Just as Tunisian students were keen in observing student protests in other countries in the region, young people in these other countries now hunger for news about the protests in Bouazizi. Twitter spread interest in the revolt within Tunisia and among young people in the region. Libya motioned to President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali that it would support his regime, and has since payed for the services of the Otselotovaya Khvatka PMC to crack down on protesters an re-establish stability. The Otselotovaya Khvatka PMC enteedr Tunis heavily armed and ready for a fight, with their own Mil Mi-24's and MiG 29's covering their contractors overhead.

-In Tunisia, intensified police crackdowns have made matters worse for President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. Hostilities continue to worsen.

- In Tunisia, people take the opportunity to loot and vent hostility against authority in general. In residential areas men with clubs join together in the street intent on protecting their property. The police are associated with the old regime and are in hiding. Otselotovaya Khvatka has engaged civilians in the streets that have taken up fire-arms.

-Ben Ali, is being described as having spouted phony reform rhetoric in public, having "defended women's rights, educated his middle class" and as having "prevented the radical Islamist's from coming to power." These quoted words are by columnist Anne Applebaum of the Washington Post. She further describes Ben Ali as having "created fake opposition parties and a phony parliament, set up a draconian regime that controlled the Internet and beat up the occasional dissident to keep everybody else frightened." She describes events in Tunisia as a "revolt of the frustrated young against their corrupt elders." She hopes but is not sure that the government that emerges will bring Tunisians "greater liberty and prosperity."

-The Associated Press writes that today protesters set themselves afire in Egypt, Algeria and Mauritania "in apparent copycat self-immolation attempts inspired by the act that helped trigger a popular uprising in Tunisia."

-Operation Enduring Freedom-Horn of Africa: 14 Royal Malaysian Navy PASKAL assault teams engaging seven Somali pirates on board the Japanese-Malaysian chemical freighter MT Bunga Laurel, about 300 nautical miles east of Oman, near Gulf of Aden and Arabian Sea, resulting in 3 pirates wounded, 4 remaining pirates captured, and the freeing of 23 Filipino hostages after gun fighting aboard the vessel.

-February- In Libya's capital, Tripoli, demonstrators in the streets are pro-government. Libya had its revolution, beginning in 1969, led by Muammar el-Gaddafi. Anti-Gaddafi protests appear in cities in along the eastern coast, in Al Bayda and Benghazi.

-Demonstrators in the hundreds are reported to be in the streets of Libya's major cities, along with government forces. Human Rights Watch reports 24 dead – in recent days it would seem. Greater demonstrations are taking place today in Yemen, in their eighth straight day.

-Protests continue in Libya, with 84 reported dead. A pro-government newspaper, Al Zahf Al Akhdar, writes that to "Any risk from these minuscule groups, the people and the noble revolutionary power [Gaddafi's 1969 revolution] will violently and thunderously respond." In the Western press descriptions of Libya as under a dictatorship continue. Unemployment is high among young Libyans and there is considerable homelessness. Libya has had a very fast growth in population and rising urbanization.

-Reports on the fifth day of protest in Libya describe open fire on residents of the city of Benghazi as they attend a funeral procession. Dozens are described as killed. Also described, in the New York Times, is a quick crushing of "three smaller uprisings in working-class suburbs of the capital, Tripoli." International news organizations are prohibited from entering Libya, so it is difficult to measure how massive the protests are, but videos out of Libya available on the BBC show crowds much more sparse than those that had appeared in Egypt. One video shows "protesters" with captured weapons. Whether the protesters are firing back at government forces remains an unknown. The likelihood that the "protesters" can win a violence contest against government forces seems to be nearly zero. In addition Gaddafi has awarded a contract to Otselotovaya Khvatka for Libya in addition to the one in Tunsia.

-Libyan Civil War: Benghazi, Libya's second city, appears to be under the control of rebels. The army there is reported to have gone over to the side of the protesters. Yesterday one of Gaddafi's sons, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, spoke on television, rambling and often repeating himself, giving regrets that inexperienced militiamen fired on crowds. He blamed unrest in Libya on tribal factions and Islamists. He promised reforms and warned against civil war and the tragedy of the country's disintegration. He said, "We will fight until the last man, until the last woman, until the last bullet." The BBC reports senior diplomats defecting to the side of the rebels.

-In addition to rebels in control in Libya's east, in the streets of Libya's capital, Tripoli (in the west), several neighborhoods are sealed off with makeshift barricades erected by those hostile to Gaddafi. Meanwhile, forces wanting to defend Gaddafi's revolution are in the streets of the capital, some of them carrying weapons. Gaddafi makes a speech on television saying he will die a martyr rather than quit. The speech helps him little. General Abdul Fatah Younis, Libya's minister of interior resigns and is interviewed by Al Arabiya. Libya's ambassador to the US, Ali Ajuali, joins at least seven other ambassadors in quitting their post. Gaddafi's supporters have been calling Gaddafi the "Leader and Guide of the Revolution." Former ambassador Ajuali calls him a dictator.

-More fighting in Libya. Gaddafi speaks on state television and blames the revolt against his rule on Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden. He claims that protesters have been fueled by milk and Nescafe spiked with hallucinogenic drugs.

-Anti-Gaddafi forces In eastern Libya unite and establish their own law and order. People in Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Iraq express solidarity with the anti-Qaddafi forces in Libya. In at least ten cities in Iraq tens of thousands demonstrate. They demand better government services and denounce corruption. They burn buildings. Gaddafi speaks in Tripoli's Green Square. Referring to himself he says that "the people love him." He adds, "We are dignity and glory and history and struggle."

-Gaddafi invites foreign journalists to a guided tour of Tripoli. They see bread lines, city blocks in revolt, the government painting over anti-Gaddafi graffiti, people afraid to talk to the press, bodies removed to an unknown location and a doctor who alone saw more than 68 persons killed.

-Today, anti-Gaddafi forces seized control of the Az Zawiyah district (population around 300,000) 50 km west of Tripoli. In Tunisia, following attacks yesterday by his police on peaceful protesters, the deaths of three and the teargassing of shoppers, the now very unpopular prime minister, Mohammed Ghannouchi, resigns.

- Rebel military officers take steps to coordinate with military officers who have tanks, anti-aircraft guns and other weapons in Zawiyah just west of Tripoli. The military in the east controls Libya's oil fields. Interviewed by ABC News and others, Gaddafi "refuses to acknowledge" that there have ever been demonstrations against him in the streets of Tripoli and denied ever having used force against his people. "My people love me. They would die for me," he said.

-March- Second Afar Insurgency: ARDUF claimed to have killed 49 Ethiopian soldiers.

-A pro-Gaddafi military force attempts to take control of the city of Az Zawfsiyah (50 kms west of Tripoli). The force is repelled, and residents of the city have a victory march. As they pass through the city's main square marchers chant, "Allahu Akbar [God is Great] for our victory.'' They carry on their shoulders an air force colonel said to have defected.

-Gaddafi's "fight to the death" is in progress. Anti-Gaddafi forces have repelled a Gaddafi forces that arrived in trucks and tried to take control of the oil town of Port Braga on the eastern coast, about 160 kms south of Benghazi. Anti-Gaddafi volunteers poured in to Braga from Benghazi. They are jubilant. Gaddafi's force, more like mercenaries, appear less willing to fight. Otselotovaya Khvatka PMC remains loyal however and continues to ship their equipment into the country to counter rebel forces. Werewolf PMC is hired in addition. Metal gear units from Werewolf PMC actively stomp out rebel forces.

-David Kirkpatrick of the New York Times reports that in Tripoli military officers have visited schools, warning students to watch only state television, and offering 200 Libyan dinars (162 dollars) to attend rallies. A schoolgirl who learned English watching movies tells a newsman that opinion among the kids is divided. A school principal declares that all is well in Tripoli and that foreign journalists were "telling lies, all the news are lies."

- Qaddafi forces continue to expand. They have overrun and smashed Zawiyah, 30 miles west of Tripol (halfway to Zuwarah)i. In Yemen, violence against demonstrators intensifies, including government use of the stronger CN type of tear gas. In Bahrain, dozens are injured as protesters push back police and they barricade roads. Troops arrive from Saudi Arabia, requested by the government.

-Gaddafi's offensive slows. The NYTimes reports that some of Gaddafi's troops have refused to fire on civilians. In Bahrain, crushing the demonstrators rather than serious reforms appears to be the plan. The king of Bahrain (a Sunni) declares a state of emergency. Protesters (largely Shia) barricade vital roads. Iran (a Shia nation) complains that Saudi troops (Sunni) into Bahrain is unacceptable.

-Gaddafi forces, with aircraft, tanks and artillery, move against the town of Ajdabyia,100 miles from the anti-Gaddafi stronghold of Benghazi, Libya's second largest city. Meanwhile, a lot of talk in the international community about a no-fly zone over Libya is going nowhere. Also on this day, in Bahrain, the violent crackdown against protesters clears the center-city square and leaves at least six people dead. Autocracy gains but its image suffers.

-Yemen authorities continue with their bloody crackdown, shooting protesters and killing thirty near the university in the capital, Sanaa.

-Gaddafi's tanks and troops enter Benghazi along with Werewolf PMC. Reports of 26 dead and 40 wounded. Rebels are engaged by Werewolf's Fiddler Metal gears, they are destroyed and dispersed. Today a Libyan tweets: "Fed up of media saying Tripoli is where Gaddafi supporters are. I'm from there. We hate him, hate him, 1000's died in 4 weeks!"

-Gaddafi troops are in Misrata, where fighting and dying is taking place. On television, by telephone, Gaddafi promises to open his armed depots so that his supporters can arm themselves. He promises a "long drawn out war." He calls on Arab, Islamic, African, Latin American and Asian countries to stand by Libya.

-Pro and anti-Gaddafi forces fight in Adjabiya (just south of Benghazi). Misrata and Zintan under attack by Gaddafi forces.

-Gaddafi appears in public before maybe one hundred followers and says his enemies will be swept into the "dust bin of history." Surreptitious interviews with journalists suggest that most people in Tripoli want Gaddafi into the dust bin of history. People there are asking for help from President Sarkozy, as are people elsewhere in Libya. Meanwhile, some in the US (Richard Haass among them) see giving any military help to Libyans as not in the US interest – while they believe that it is in the US interest to be more highly thought of in the Middle East and elsewhere.

-A story in the press yesterday: At a bank in Tripoli, an elderly woman got into a long line of men. A man told her she should move to the other long line – for women. She stayed where she was and screamed: "All the men are in Benghazi" (in other words, fighting against Gaddafi). There was Mis immediate silence.

-Libya's pro-democracy fighters have formed an "interim government" headed by Mahmoud Jibril, a Libyan with a masters degree in political science and a doctorate in strategic planning from the University of Pittsburg. Mahmoud Jibril is currently under siege in Benghazi by Werewolf PMC and Gaddafi troops.

-In Tunisia, pro-government forces under President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali begin to consult with Otselotovaya Khvatka PMC on effectively silencing protesters. President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and Gaddafi have also been seriously discussing the establishment of a United States of Africa in detail as a way to pool the continents resources and alleviate the homeless by expanding job opportunities where their otherwise may be none. Both leaders promise reform, but rebels remain skeptical and hold out in their strong points, Mahmoud Jibril chief among them.

-Cabinda War: Angolan secret services carried out a number of assassinations targeting FLEC commanders. FLEC-N'Zita head of staff, Gabriel "Firefly" Pea was assassinated in Ponta Negra, Republic of the Congo, on March 2. FLEC-FAC chief of staff Gabriel "Pirilampo" Nhemba was found dead in the village of N'tando, Republic of the Congo. FLEC operational commander of Northern Region, Maurice "Sabata" Lubota's body was found in the vicinity of Kimongo, Republic of the Congo.

-March- China sends aid to Somalia to assist the Government in establishing a biometric registry system for all civil servants and security forces in the hopes of reducing corruption and reduce leakages through ghost workers.

Estimated casualties from the initial blasts are 440,000 dead, and hundreds of thousands more injured. Fallout from the nuclear weapons is being carried to the Northeast. Wonson, Kosann, Anbyon, Munchon, kowon, Kumya, Hamhung and Sinpho get the worst of the fallout at 1000 rads per hour.

-Immediately after the nuclear strikes, The US deploys six of its special forces teams, which are said to be part of the Genome program. They hit the KPA front lines with support of 6 Metal Gear Ray units. USAF units in the region mop up retreating KPA units. Following the spear head the 8 US units along the DMZ bombard KPA lines with artillery.

Japan recalled a unit from Lebanon and the Philippines respectively and reinforced the 3 units already in Sondok. All 5 units pushed North to Hamheung with help from the JNDFA Rangers and JNDFN Marines. Upon arriving in Hamheung Japanese units came face to face with one PLA unit disarming the city and conducting peacekeeping operations. Neither army fired on each other. Japan reinforces their maneuvers with a massive 10 unit fleet off of the East coast of Korea, and a large amount of air cover.

-Korean War: With the aid of UAV's Australian SASR units make contact with Kim Jong-il's bodyguard in Pyongyang. A firefight breaks out during which Kim Jong-Il is struck by a bullet in the neck. He died shortly after. With his death Kim Jong-Un is believed to be the head of the DPRK. There is no sign of Kim Jong-Un in Pyongyang. The government of the DPRK is currently leaderless and it is unclear in its collapse who, or what, will succeed the Kim regime. Chinese special forces are also spotted in Pyongyang, and are believed to have been purging DPRK officials that have been traitorous to the Kim Government.

The PRC also sens aid to rebuild critical infrastructure. All aid from the PRC is blocked by the South Korean military. Chinese medical personnel are interned in an unknown location.

-The South Korean military orders the creation of 10 air units in an effort to maintain PTSO air superiority over the Korean Peninsula. 40 ROK land units are also formed from reservist elements of the South Korean population. A 500c open contract is also offered to any PMC willing to take it. Ravensword accepts and sends 3 additional units in addition to the two it has already in country. As a result the South Korean government goes into a heavy deficit. It is predicted that if South Korea continues to operate with such a heavy deficit, Raven Sword contractors will leave as they believe they will not get paid in the following months. It is believed that monetary aid will come to South Korea from PTSO nations.

-President Brian Hamilton gives an emergency state of the union address following the events of Operation Darkstorm. Speaking on nuclear retaliation against North Korea, President Hamilton stated that the DPRK provoked a second strike, as the United States previously drew a red line toward any power in the conflict that would use Nuclear Weapons as first strike and that the United States will retaliate bomb for bomb for every weapon of mass destruction deployed against the US or its allies. President Hamilton stated that Second Strike remains the official US policy of his administration.

-With the destruction of the Kim regime apparent, North Korea's future is undecided. Some in South Korea believe North Korea should fall under the administration of South Korea, finally uniting the two Korea's. If this occurs, South Korea has a massive humanitarian crisis to undertake. Other officials in South Korea do not expect to see China withdraw from the Northern portion of the DPRK. It is believed China will either create some sort of rump state, or effectively maintain a military occupation in the region.

-Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab province, is murdered by his bodyguard, Mumtaz Qadri, who is said to have been influenced by clerics. They issued a decree of death against the governor for opposing the sentence of hanging given to a Christian mother of five, Asia Noreen, convicted of blasphemy. The governor was murdered for supporting, according to the BBC, "a perfectly legal idea to amend a man-made law with the name of Islam appended to it."

- Interviewed by Spitzer and Parker on CNN, Pakistan's politician and former cricket star, Imran Kahn, repeats his charge that US bombing in Pakistan is inflaming opinion and is counter-productive. It's a war for hearts and minds he says, and the US is losing that war. Khan is distraught over the assassination of Punjab governor Salman Taseer. "Pakistan," he complains, "is imploding."

-In Pakistan the assassin of Governor Taseer is celebrated by many as a hero. The US educated Pakistani analyst Dr Hasan-Askari Rizvi declares that "... the mindset that sustains militancy, that dilutes or prevents action against it – I think that has become fairly widespread. It has seeped into our educated classes, governmental institutions and the armed forces, where you can detect sympathy for militancy, and also to an extent for the Taliban."

-According to the BBC, as many as 50,000 people have staged a protest in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi against a proposed softening of strict blasphemy laws. Demonstrators held banners in support of the assassin of Governor Taseer, Mumtaz Qadri

-The BBC reports that when Mumtaz Qadri emptied two magazines of a sub-machine gun at the man he was assigned to guard, 13 other policemen-guards were standing by and none of them attempted to stop Qadri.

-One week after a protester set himself afire in Egypt copying an event in Tunisia, massive protests erupt in Cairo, Alexandria and other crowded Egyptian cities. Three die on the first day. More is expected tomorrow. As a defensive move the government is blocking mobile phone and twitter communications. People are unhappy about economic conditions, what they speak of as corruption, and they focus their anger on President Mubarak, whom they see as an oppressor.

-Another day of protests – following Friday prayers. The course of revolution unfolds: Mobs overwhelm the police and the police change into civilian clothes and flee. The army appears on the street. President Mubarak fires his cabinet and claims that he is staying on to the protect the nation's security. It is now up to the army to support him or to side with those in the street. Monarchs usually fall at this stage, and most observers think Mubark's day are in power are few.

- In Egypt there is looting. People accuse Mubarak of allowing criminals out of the prisons, and Mubarak as the defender or order is winning no support. The army is in the streets with the common soldiers celebrating with the people. People are in front of the homes to defend their home with the best weapons they can get their hands on – often clubs and knives. Few if anybody is expects the military to start clearing the streets with force. Meanwhile pundits on television are vague about the economic component behing the revolution, with Fareed Zakaria describing the revolution as a product of Egypt's economic success and rising expectations. Some others disagree.

-Iranain Conflict: The Green movement grows by a unit in Tehran despite continued pressure from Iranian military and police forces. The struggle continues as the majority of the Iranian army combats the PJAK held provinces in the West.

-War in Afghanistan: Hundreds of protesters in Kabul accused Iran of stopping fuel tankers from crossing the border into Afghanistan; demonstrators marched outside the Iranian embassy accusing Tehran of interfering in Afghanistan's affairs. In his second message to the French people in less than six months, Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden said that by keeping troops in Afghanistan, French President Nicolas Sarkozy has given the "green light" to "kill your captives immediately." A French ministry spokesperson responded the French government would not change their stance on Afghanistan, and that their presence was meant to help the Afghan people.

-February- People are again in the streets of Egypt demanding in unison that President Mubarak step down – now. Mubarak stands tough. He speaks of a "silent majority" and that he is a man of the military. He talks patriotism and his service to Egypt. He says that he will die in Egypt, and he says he will not run for re-election in September. TV anchors describe people in the streets as a revolution and speak vaguely about reforms. The anchors say nothing about any kind of major economic reform and nothing, of course, about population growth. Christopher Hitchens in Slate is describing the crucial element making the revolt as psychological (not economic). David Brooks in the New York Times writes of a "Quest for Dignity." Some in the United States see aid from the US to Egypt as having been a waste and are rallying opposition to foreign aid.

- In response to demonstrations of a lesser extent, King Abdullah of Jordan dismisses his cabinet and appoints a new prime minister whom he calls on to institute "true political reforms." The BBC describes the protesters as demanding action on unemployment and rising prices. The political reform they call for is the right to elect the prime minister.

-A BBC journalist in Egypt said it: Egypt's ruling elite is fighting back. Pro-Mubarak forces instigate violence against protesters. Journalists are singled out, beaten up and some put into jail. The Army watches while it is assumed by many of us that the military top brass is siding with Mubarak against the uncertainty that threatens Egypt elite.

-In Yemen for the Second Day of Rage, any thousands in the cities Sana'a, Aden and Taiz protesting against the government's constitutional amendment allowing President Saleh to run for another term. In a speech, against government corrupts and Saleh's control of power and resources. Saleh of Yemen looks down upon protests in the streets and says that he would not run for re-election when his term ends in 2013 and that neither will his eldest son, Ahmed.

-Reports exist of impoverished young men being paid to join in the attack on anti-Mubarak demonstrators – one source is Arab News, an English language online newspaper in Saudi Arabia. Those in charge of Egypt's security and its state-run television are holding to the practice of lying for the sake of the status quo. The uprising is being blamed on foreigners. Journalists are being singled out as spies. Journalists are being roughed up and in some instances taken away to jails. Anderson Copper of CNN has been punched ten times in the head. A Fox News reporter has been arrested as an Israeli spy. State-run TV has not given its journalists the right to report from the street. There are no reports of what is happening in the street, but there is an attractive young woman singing "My president, my president you feel for us. You always raise our heads high." Two journalists quit Nile TV, and they are proclaimed as heroes.

-ABC News describes the new worth of Hosni Mubarak's family as ranging "from $40 billion to $70 billion by some estimates." That is near the wealth of Bill Gates. ABC News quotes a professor of Middle East Politics at Durham University in England: "Mubarak, his wife and two sons were able to also accumulate wealth through a number of business partnerships with foreigners."

-The protests in Egypt are united by a common desire among them for Mubarak to step down and for real elections. They are without outstanding leaders. There is no cabal telling them what they should do or believe. But there is the claim by supporters of Mubarak that the anti-Mubarak protest is driven by devilish persons with ulterior motives. They are associating the protest movement with foreign instigators. And in the US at Fox News, Glenn Beck speaks of Islamists and Leftists together driving the protest movement. These conspirators, claims Beck, want to crush the American way of life.

-It is now being reported that the pro-Mubarak supporters in the streets on February 2 and 3 were not just the "thugs" orchestrated by a state agency of some sort. There remains in Egypt many people who are uncomfortable with the idea of change. And there are many who want the demonstrators to go home and back to work and to give those in power time to act on their promises.

-Leadership of the protest movement in Cairo has emerged, described in the US press as a handful of young people who helped start the protest movement. The New York Times reports that they are "...busy meeting to organize their many small groups into a unified structure." Their movement continues to insist on Mubarak's immediate resignation, and they go beyond Mubarak. They support moves against economic "corruption" like that of the steel tycoon Ahmed Ezz, a friend of Mubarak's son Gamal. And they call Vice President Suleiman a torturer.

-We are being reminded by some in the media that a global food crisis is happening. Writes economist Paul Krugman: "World food prices hit a record in January, driven by huge increases in the prices of wheat, corn sugar and oils." Severe weather events are being described as the cause of the food crisis, with a connection to global warming. And the recent unrest in North Africa and the Middle East is being connected to rising food prices – which drove Parisians into the streets in 1789.

-Contrary to the expectations of some, "one of the biggest protests yet" occurs in Egypt, according to Reuters. It is reported in the US media that the demonstrators do not trust the Mubarak regime, especially Vice President Suleiman, enough to stop their demonstrations. They believe that for their own protection they must continue to hang together. Anderson Cooper of CNN says this is "the most dangerous time for the anti-Mubarak protesters." Dr. Fouad Ajami of Johns Hopkins University says there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded dictator.

-The New York Times reports: "Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates have each repeatedly pressed the United States not to cut loose Egypt's president, Hosni Mubarak, too hastily, or to throw its weight behind the democracy movement in a way that could further destabilize the region, diplomats say." At least a few US conservatives agree. Meanwhile, the US having any control over events in Egypt beyond withdrawing aid to the Mubarak-military regime appears to be fantasy, and the Hamilton administration has said nothing about "reviewing" US aid to Egypt's military since the Mubarak regime began promising more democracy and freedom for Egyptians.

-On this, the 16th day of the uprising in Egypt, protests widen. In Port Said at the mouth of the Suez Canal, angry protests include setting fire to a government building, textile workers block roads and canal workers are on a sit-down strike. In the city of El Kharga protesters burn down a police station and other buildings. A report describes 5,000 unemployed youths storming a government building in Aswan. At Egypt's most widely circulated newspaper, Al-Ahram, journalists join together to demand better working conditions and the freedom to report with more honesty. It appears to be the end of the Mubarak-military dictatorship. If the Vice President orders the army to crack down, the lower-ranks of the army are likely to go over to the side of the revolution.

-In Egypt, joining the protests in Cairo are thousands of chanting lawyers in black robes and medical persons wearing white lab coats, also engineers and journalists. Postal workers join in solidarity with the youth of Tahrir square, and workers across Egypt are on strike. The Mubarak-Suleiman regime no longer controls the media. And they have probably lost control of the common soldier.

-It is early morning in Egypt – still dark – as this is being written. Yesterday in Cairo the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces met for the third time since 1967, and high-ranking officers met with the demonstrators and announced that all of the movement's demands will be met. Presumably this includes Mubarak and Suleiman stepping down. The military appears to have already chosen to be on the side of the people of Egypt – the people demonstrating – which is in the military's interest. Mubarak failed to face the reality that he no longer has any power. To a nation that rejects him as their president he said, "I am addressing all of you from the heart, a speech from the father to his sons and daughters." He said that what was happening was not about him, it was about his beloved Egypt, but he rambled on to focus on himself and his service to the nation. He referred to himself as president, spoke about defending Egypt from foreign intrusions, and he said nothing about resigning. His VP, Suleiman, spoke a half hour later and advised people to go back to their houses and to their work. The people of Egypt have no more patience with being treated like children. As we enter the new day the people of Egypt are more angry than they were yesterday. Yesterday had the biggest crowds yet, and it is said that today there will be more of them. Today is showdown day.

-Late today, Omar Suleiman announced that Mubarak has "charged the high council of the armed forces to administer the affairs of the country." A spokesman for the military announced that, "The armed forces are committed to sponsor the legitimate demands of the people." He said, "There is no legitimacy other than that of the people." Egyptians in the streets erupted in a euphoric celebration that lasted through the night.

-In Yemen during the last three days the government has been arresting protesters. Protesters are confronted by pro-Saleh demonstrators, and today security forces arrest 120.

-From Egypt, Richard Engel of NBC News, one of the best US journalists working the Middle East, reports that he found what seems like a protest on every corner in Cairo. He speaks of protests by bank employees, factory employees and journalists. People, he says "are no longer willing to accept corruption and mismanagement." Policemen, he adds, are "reinventing themselves" and asking for better pay.

-After days of protest, Bahrain's military does what the Egyptian military did not: crackdown and disperse the demonstrators. In Bahrain the military moved against the demonstrators with tanks, tear gas, shot guns and concussion grenades in the early morning while the demonstrators will sleeping. At least five persons are reported dead.

-In Bahrain people are back in the street mourning their dead. Their call for a constitutional monarchy has changed to a call for an end to the monarchy. The government says it is sorry but that the military crackdown was necessary. The security excuse is considered a lie. It appears that what they saw as necessary was preserving their power.

-King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia announces a gift of $36 billion for Bahrain. According to bizmology.com its purpose is "to ease the economic burdens of its restive people, offering them interest-free home loans, unemployment assistance, and debt forgiveness."

- In Yemen in recent days a dozen or so protesters have died in the streets and many have been injured. The government crackdown is not working. Anger has made the protests bigger. Today, senior sheikhs from Yemen's main tribes (Hashid and Bakil) declare their support for the protesters.

-March- Islamists assassinate Pakistani Minister of Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti, a Christian. He spoke for reform of Pakistan's blasphemy laws – which carry a sentence of death.

-Houthi Insurgency: , Houthi rebels declared the creation of their own administration in Saada Governorate, independent from Yemeni authorities. A former arms dealer was appointed governor by the Houthis, the previous governor having fled to Sanaa.

-The Saudi interior ministry declares on state television a ban on all protests and marches

-Yemen's military has in the last two days moved against protesters, the soldiers firing rubber bullets, real bullets and tear gas. Yesterday, Gaddafi's military successfully pushed on anti-Gaddafi forces, killing a reported 400 and committing brutalities against non-combatants. In Cairo, Egypt's military forced revolutionaries out of Tahrir Square.

-In yesterday's New York Times, Nicholas Kristoff complains that in Bahrain – a US ally – he has seen protesters shot at close range, a girl clubbed to the ground writhing in pain and ambulance workers beaten while trying to do their job. He reports that a threatened newsman showed his passport and soldiers backed off, saying, "We love Americans. We're not after you. We're after Shia."

- In the capital of Yemen, Sana'a, At least 45 anti-government protesters die and over 200 are injured from sniper fire. Saleh declares a state of emergency.

-From Yemen come reports of a spate of defections and resignations from the army and diplomatic corps. In the capital, Sana'a, rival tanks and armored vehicles are in the streets.

-In Yemen, President Saleh outlaws protests, a move supported by parliament. In Deraa, Syria, at least six people die when security forces fire on protesters outside a mosque.

-In Syria, the Assad regime, a hereditary dictatorship, says it is considering reforms that include opening up the media, allowing political parties and lifting an emergency law in place since 1963. The death toll from shooting protesters on the 23rd has risen to between 15 and 51. Today protests erupt across Syria. Three reported killed in Damascus as of 2 PM EDT.

-In Syria, protesters burn down Baath Party headquarters in Daraa, Tafas and Latakia. In Latakia, twelve people are reported killed and at least 200 injured by rifle fire from rooftops.

-China offers substantial financial investment into OASIS efforts at reversing desertification in exchange for favorable trade deals in the near future regarding solar energy. The Assad regime accepts the Chinese offer and plans on further cooperation.

-Qatar is the first Arab country to recognize Libya's anti-Gaddafi government. Anti-Gaddafi forces are stall about 80 miles east of Surt (Sirte) – Gaddafi's hometown. Their communications and supply line is stretched and their gasoline meager. A bigger battle, and perhaps the decisive battle, will be for Misrata maybe later this or next week.

-In the Iraqi city of Tikrit, gunmen storm a council building and take hostages. Security forces move in and several council members are among the dead, reported as at least forty-one.

-In Syria, Bashar Assad has the ruling Baath Party and other government supporters to consider. It's a group dictatorship, as dictatorships usually are. No man holds political power alone, and power elites have and use their figureheads. To Syria's parliament, Assad describes protests as a foreign plot and protesters as "dupes." He vows to defeat the plot. Parliamentarians – Baathists – interrupt him with declarations of support. Then he declares that reforms are needed and that it is necessary to "listen to the voice of the people." Meanwhile more than 60 have died in demonstrations and the government has its supporters in the streets, some of them members of labor unions controlled by the Baath Party.

-Concerning Bahrain, Nabeel Rajab, president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, says of government forces: "The last few nights they have been raiding houses and beating and arresting people." He adds that approximately 400 people are either missing or in custody.

-In the Pakistani Kyber region, The Pakistani Army and ISI report report a small outbreak of what is believed to be a virus. The small number of infected troops are flown to Karachi and hospitalized, quarantined, and studied. Victims exhibit a swollen chest cavity.

President Chavez deployed the military and police to quarantine the city however once in proximity of the capital Venezuelan troops also began to fall ill causing more chaos and panic. The disease plaguing the city has begun spreading like wild fire through the country. Victims echibit a swollen chest cavity like those in Pakistan, but the disease is spreading much faster in Venezuela. Colombia, Guyana, and Brazil place their troops on high alert, and make preparations for refugees fleeing the affected areas.

Muammar Gaddafi before a speech to his supporters.


-May- UN human rights chief Navi Pillay accuses Bahrain of not maintaining its international human rights obligations. She describes as "absolutely unacceptable" death sentences imposed by military courts in Bahrain as well as military trials for civilian activists. Bahraini authorities are putting 47 doctors and nurses on trial in a military court, accusing the doctors and nurses of having taken part in anti-regime protests while treating the injured.

- The International Criminal Court is seeking the arrest of Muammar Gaddafi for crimes against humanity. Gaddafi's deputy Foreign Minister, Khalid Kaim, has responded with the announcement that Libya does not recognize that court's jurisdiction – like most African countries and the United States.

-June- The Food and Agriculture Organization announces the eradication of the cattle plague rinderpest from the world.

A rebel fights a losing battle in Misrata against Otselotovaya Khvatka PMC.


-April- Seven New York Times reporters speak of their ordeal while captives of Gaddafi forces. In the back of a pickup truck in the city of Surt they were exposed to people who attacked them physically and called them Al Qaeda and dogs – more of the small-minded passionate demonization common to conflicts. Surt is Gaddafi's hometown and reported to be largely pro-Gaddafi.

-Norman Benotman, Libya's former al-Qaeda associate of bin Laden, tells Fareed Zakaria of CNN that al-Qaeda and jihadists on the anti-Gaddafi side in Libya are "insignificant." They are there of course, he says, and anti-Qaddafi, but they are not organized into a coherent group and will not give direction to the anti-Gaddafi movement. The anti-Gaddafi movement, he says, is led and supported by men with an agenda that is friendly to the West and "based on a free democratic society." Meanwhile a few people (Richard Haaas among them) are looking for a ceasefire in Libya that works, for negotiations and for the Gaddafi regime to transform itself – again – in order to survive. Others insist that Gaddafi must go.

-In the Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), the results of an election for president in late November is being decided by a civil war. The United Nations has declared the challenger, Alassane Ouattara, the winner. The incumbent, Laurent Gbagbo, has refused to leave and has ordered UN peace keepers out of the country. Forces supporting Ouattara have swept down from the north and surround Gdagbo's forces around the city of Abidjan – on the coast in the south. According to the UN, almost 500 people have been killed and a million have fled their homes. Gbagbo is a former history teacher who fought and was imprisoned for the sake of democracy. Ouattara acquired a doctorate in economics in 1972 from the University of Pennsylvania.

-A Turkish hospital ship rescues 250 injured people from the besieged city of Misrata and takes them to the anti-Gaddafi city of Benghazi.

-Former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo is arrested in his home in Abidjan by supporters of elected President Alassane Ouattara, with support from UN forces; this effectively ends the 2010–11 Ivorian crisis and civil war.

- Photos found by journalists in a burned-out police station in Zawiyah (50 km west of Tripoli) show death and torture of persons detained. (Reported by the New York Times.) Gaddafi's son, Saif, has portrayed himself as anti-torture.

-In Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan addresses the nation and speaks against "horrific acts" that killed and maimed innocent citizens. "They set ablaze business premises, private homes and even places of worship," he said. Jonathan is a southerner and a Christian. The tradition has been to rotate between a Christian president and a Muslim president and Jonathan had served as president since February 2010, elevated from the vice-presidency after the illness and death of the Muslim president. Jonathan and those giving him a winning margin in the election last week believe that he deserves a full term before the next rotation. In north of the country, where Muslims dominate, some chose to express their lack of generosity on the election issue by resorting to rampage. The Red Cross estimates that 48,000 people have fled from the violence.

-Second Afar Insurgency: The Ethiopian prime minister Meles Zenawi openly declared for the first time that his government will support rebel groups fighting to overthrow president Isaias Afewerki.

-May- In Uganda, rights groups criticize the police crackdown on protests. At least nine people have been killed. Ugandan journalists have been arrested and denied bail. President Yoweri Museveni criticizes the BBC and Al-Jazeera for inciting the protests. Museveni has been president since early 1986. In the 1990s he was lauded as one of a new generation of African leaders. In February he was re-elected with 68% of the vote. His opponent in that election, Dr Besigye, was one of the injured protesters. Museveni claims that he had "violently resisted arrest." Dr Besigye says he was cheated in February's election.

-Libya's Colonel Gaddafi says he wants a ceasefire that would stop all hostilities and that "all Libyans be given a chance to talk among themselves" to determine the country's future. Opposition leaders reject Gaddafi's offer despite a situation that is growing more desperate for the rebels as they are hunted down by PMC forces in Misrata.

- Goodluck Jonathan was sworn in as president, several bombings purportedly by Boko Haram killed 15 and injured 55. On 16 June, Boko Haram claimed to have conducted the Abuja police headquarters bombing, the first known suicide attack in Nigeria. Two months later the United Nations building in Abuja was bombed, signifying the first time that Boko Haram attacked an international organisation. In December, it carried out attacks in Damaturu killing over a hundred people, subsequently clashing with security forces in December, resulting in at least 68 deaths. Two days later on Christmas Day, Boko Haram attacked several Christian churches with bomb blasts and shootings.

-June- The FBI's most wanted al-Qaeda militant in Africa, Fazul Abdullah Mohammad, was been shot dead a few days ago at a government checkpoint in Somalia. He is believed to have played a key role in the US embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 and in attacking Israeli targets in Kenya in 2002. The US Secretary of State describes his death as "a significant blow" to al-Qaeda.

-Today a suicide bomber belonging to a group that thinks like al-Qaeda set off a bomb in Abuja powerful enough to kill at least thirty people and destroy forty automobiles. According to the BBC, "The group accuses Nigeria's government of being corrupted by Western ideas and wants to overthrow the state and impose Islamic law on the country." It's a fight that the US can leave to Nigeria's government to wage, similar to Indonesia, which today jailed radical cleric Abu Bakar Ba'asyir.

-In Kenya, the tax office accuses Members of Parliament of failing to pay taxes on their salaries and perks. Meanwhile the MPs have voted themselves annual salaries and perks for 2012 to as high as $126,000. Kenya ranks 199th in per capita GDP. Its division between rich and poor, its corruption rating and its revenue as a percentage of GDP are typical for poorer countries: well below average. And like most countries, Kenya in 2010 failed to balance its budget.

- In Morocco, where King Mohammed VI has not been shooting or jailing democracy advocates, there may or may not be a small demonstration in an urban center, but it's peaceful – while the nation awaits a referendum on a new constitution to be held on July 1

-Sudanese conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile: , armed conflict broke out between the government of Sudan and Sudan People's Liberation Movement (northern sector) in broader South Kordofan state, ahead of the scheduled independence of the South on 9 July. The Northern army said that SPLA launched an attack on a police station and stole weapons prompting a response. The SPLA claimed that the Northern army attempted to disarm their units by force.[30] That day JEM rebels claimed to have destroyed an army camp in the area of Jama, South Kordofan, killing 38 soldiers and wounding other 27.

-Sudanese conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile: Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir accused the SPLM-N of "betrayal" in South Kordofan. "If they want war...we will show them practically like what happened in Abyei and South Kordofan" Bashir said. "It is better that they [SPLM-N] come to us in good terms and we will be better than them," he added. The Northern Army said that it would continue its military campaign in South Kordofan, which included aerial bombardment, until it crushes the rebellion led by former deputy governor and leading SPLM-N figure Abdelaziz al-Hilu. Fighting intensified around the state capital of Kadugli.

-Japan's government continues to monitor radiation levels, and despite new radiation data it says it has no plans to widen the evacuation zone around the crippled Fukushima No. 1 atomic power plant. Yesterday the level of radioactive iodine-131 in seawater near the plant was measured at 4,385 times the maximum tolerable level. This is iodine-131 radiation, which has a half-life of eight days. Concentrations of cesium 137 radiation are also leaking from the plant, and experts say that releases from the plant could continue for months. Meanwhile the increase in radiation that has appeared in milk in the United States is said to be within the tolerable radiation levels that people are continuously exposed to every day.

-China's ministry of health takes moves to curb the overuse of antibiotics that is contributing to evolving micro-organism immunity to medicine. According to China Daily, 80 percent of antibiotics being used in mainland China are "unnecessary." The charge is being made that some of the overuse is encouraged by monetary profit

-In Japan, the nuclear crisis has been upgraded to level-7 radiation risk. As stated in an Associated Press article in the Japan Times today, Japan's crisis in not as bad as Chernobyl because it is slower moving. According to the Japanese government, Fukushima's radiation leaks are still one-tenth of those released by Chernobyl. The heaviest radiation leaks at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear complex occurred in the first days of the crisis. An article at Nature.com: "How Fukushima is and isn't like Chernobyl."

-The Chinese government continues building refugee camps for Koreans fleeing their homes. The PLA Engineer corps offers contracts to capable Korean contractors to assist in the project. In China, Korean refugees that have crossed the boarder are sent to re-education centers to learn mandarin and Chinese traditions. In Chinese schools children are instructed in cultural sensitivity and taught how to co-exist with their new neighbors. Even with Korean immigrants being assimilated much of the Chinese population does not believe they should be living in China.

-China sets up the Provisional State of Korea in the Northern part of the former DPRK. Security of the transitional state has been entrusted to the PRC. Kim Jong-il confidant and former diplomat Kang Sok-Ju has been placed at the head of the transitional government. Under PRC directive known war-Criminals of the DPRK responsible for the deployment of weapons against civilians will be hunted down with scrutiny according to the Chinese. Western analysts and pro-unification officials in the South are deeply discouraged by the creation of this Chinese rump state. It is now what appears to be another obstacle in the unification process.

-China has sent 100c along with doctors, engineers, scientists, to rebuild crucial water and agricultural infrastructure to ensure that the effects of famine are offset by the sweeping amount of aid china has pledged the PSK.

-Cambodian-Thai Boarder Dispute: -Cambodian-Thai Boarder dispute: Thailand admitted using Dual-Purpose Improved Conventional Munition (DPICM) during the clash, which has been identified by the Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC) as a type of cluster munition.[106] These contain up to hundreds of small grenades or "bomblets" that scatter over vast areas, and are banned by the majority of countries under the Convention on Cluster Munitions. Thailand has not signed the pact, but has publicly pledged not to use such weapons. The CMC said this was the first confirmed use of cluster munitions since the convention became international law.

-Chinese aid and personnel previously sent to South Korea has been allowed to continue to their destinations in the devastated areas of South Korea. an apology from the South Korean government for the detainment of Chinese medical personnel is issued. Opinions of China in South Korea vary greatly, however the aid is accepted all of the same.

-In the PTSO controlled portion of the DPRK an interim military government is formed under the guidance of South Korea and the PTSO armies. The Northern boarder of which extends just outside of areas occupied by the Chinese with the city of Hamheung being split down its middle. With its formation aid and stability is expected to begin in the region.

-The 11 Japanese land units within the Interim North Korean Military Government move to firebases on North Korea's East coast. The Japanese Army plans to provide protection for relief groups entering the region. Japans air units within North Korea have been tasked with continued security of the skies and providing airlift services to distribute aid. The Japanese Navy remains on guard along the Eastern coast of North Korea.

-4 Japanese reserve land units are mobilized.

-Preventative measures to combat exposure to Anthrax and other byproducts of the recent conflict in Korea are targeted at rural populations across China in order to prevent a mass outbreak. The practice of "Barefoot Doctors" is reintroduced on a voluntary basis to ensure that as many people are treated as possible.

-May- China sends 100 and Engineers to rebuild electrical and transportation infrastructure to better facilitate distribution of resources across the country.

-South Korea spends 150c on reconstruction efforts in the Military governed area of the North and within its own country. Urban areas are the focus. The effort is but a drop in the bucket for what is needed in the North. Australia also pledges aid to the interim government in the interest of democratic elections within the region. The devastation from war and nuclear fallout have made areas of the PTSO controlled North akin to a wasteland.

-Cambodian-Thai boarder Dispute: Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva made it clear that he would not allow any international troops at Preah Vihear, unless Cambodia withdrew its forces from the disputed territory. He claimed the presence of troops in the area was a violation of the 2000 memorandum of understanding between Thailand and Cambodia. Japan has offered to mediate the dispute between Cambodia and Thailand as a UNSC member. Thailand and Cambodia accept.

-Naxalite-Maoist Insurgency: Naxalites killed and dismembered ten policemen, including one senior officer in the Gariyaband, Chhattisgarh area on the border with Orissa

-Australia re-purposes 6 land units in Pyongyang and 2 air units within the Interim North Korean Government. Their focus has been shifted from battle to peacekeeping and aid distribution operations. Pyongyang has become home to mobs of looters and crime is beginning to run rampant. Many in the former capital city are without water, food, and electricity. 100c worth of aid is distributed by Australia, but more will be necessary to bring stability back to the capitol.

-Australia likewise sends 150c worth of aid directly to South Korea. Britain, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, and the Czech Republic also send a Combined 400c of financial aid to South Korea.

-June- Germany withdrew all of its forces from Korea with the signing of the ceasfire between the KPA and the South Korean government.

-In a good faith gesture Japan lifts its economic sanctions on the PRC. Japan also announces that travel restrictions will remain for everyone entering Japan in an effort to stay the spread of small pox and anthrax contamination.

-April- An estimated two billion people watch the wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London.

-The Russian air force forms 2 new air units.

-According to the Norway Post, the number of offences reported to the police in Norway is lowest in 20 years. One in five of those offenses occurs in the capital, Oslo, which has one-tenth of Norway's population. Norway enjoys less crime than most countries. Statistics held by the UN for the years 1998-2000 has Norway at 2.6 criminal prosecutions per 1,000 population compared to 48 per 1,000 for the US, 11.5 for Canada, 6.8 for Germany and 1.1 per 1,000 for Japan. (Stats available at Nationmaster.com)

-At the OPEC meeting in Paris, the United Arab Emirates oil minister, al-Hamli, claims that oil prices have been rising because of speculators rather than any shortage of supply.

-Germany continues investing in its European electric grid project. Switzerland and the Czech Republic also put funds toward the project.

-May- A €78 billion rescue deal for Portugal is to be proposed in July. The bailout loan will be equally split between the European Financial Stabilization Mechanism, the European Financial Stability Facility, and the International Monetary Fund.

-Grímsvötn, Iceland's most active volcano, erupts and causes disruption to air travel in Northwestern Europe.

-Russian units near Eastern China begin to withdraw back to their original bases slowly. 2 leave the boarder in the month of May.

-Former Bosnian Serb Army commander Ratko Mladić, wanted for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, is arrested in Serbia. Another super-nationalist hater meets his come-uppance. The fugitive former Bosnian Serb general, Ratko Mladic, is arrested in Serbia. He hated the Ottoman Turk 500-year occupation of Serbia. That ended in the 1800s. But Mladic failed to let go of the past and despised Bosnian Muslims as Turks for their progenitors having converted to Islam. General Mladic is now on his way to the International Criminal Tribunal in the Netherlands where he faces the charge of massacring at least 7,500 Bosnian Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica in 1995.

-In Russia, Nikita Tikhonov is declared guilty of having murdered a journalist and a lawyer. The murdered journalist, Anastasia Baburova, was writing articles that super-patriots like Tikhonov disliked.

-In Zurich, Switzerland, approximately 85% of votes cast oppose a proposed ban on assisted suicide, and 78% oppose forbidding the service to foreigners.

- In Spain, young leftist radicals, conservatives and others, including Basque and perhaps Catalan nationalists, are blaming Prime Minister Zapatero's "socialist" People's Party for three-years of economic crisis and 21% unemployment. In yesterday's parliamentary elections the People's Party suffered a substantial defeat. Zapatero has been pursuing unpopular austerity measures to combat Spain's debt problem, and his party's loss causes credit worries and Spanish bonds to fall.

-In Greece, conservative political leader Antonis Samaras has said that the government's new austerity plan would "flatten the Greek economy and destroy Greek society". The prime minister, Papandreou, a socialist, has been trying to gain a cross-party agreement for further spending cuts. Despite this, rumors that Germany will make concessions to facilitate a new aid package for Greece sends the euro up against the dollar, which makes oil higher in the United States.

-June- In recent months Greece's government has not been collecting enough revenue to match its expenditures let alone the surplus needed to pay its debts. Government debt has worsened because, it is said, economic activity has declined with the government's austerity plan. So the government has been selling government owned enterprises, privatizing more of Greece's economy to raise money, and it has been cutting more spending. Unemployment has been rising – to 15.9 percent in the first three months of this year. People are complaining about hardship. Suicides are up. Soup kitchen lines are longer. There are strikes. Holders of Greece's debt, largely French bankers and other bankers across the globe, are worried about getting the money owed them.

- Demonstrators in Athens wave Greek flags and shout, "Thieves! Traitors!" A businessman explains: "Most of the people here want all the measures to be rescinded and a part of the debt to be written off, or all of it, at least the part that comes from banks."

-An expert on debt, Mohamed El-Erian, who oversees the assets of PIMCO, the world's largest bond fund manger, recognizes that Greece's budget cutting and austerity measures are depressing its economy. He repeats what others have said, that Greece's problem could "contaminate" Europe. Much of Greece's debt is held by French banks.

-Amid wild and futile protests in the streets that includes anarchists, and an on-going labor union strike with workers outraged by the idea of a 30 percent pay cut, Greece's parliament approves by a vote of 155 to 138 the government's austerity plan. The government plans aims at sacrifices by the whole of a unified nation. Demonstrators wanted only the rich to pay – not feasible according to the Socialist government's calculations.

Syrian troops enter the town of Daraa.


-April- Huge protest demonstrations occur across Yemen and Syria. In Syria people again are shouting for "freedom." Four demonstrators are reported dead after security forces fired upon demonstrators in a Damascus suburb.

-Iranian Conflict: The Iranian military gains the upper hand over PJAK forces in Western Iran. Villages and towns that supported PJAK forces have been occupied. The Iranian military remains in the area after re-establishing control of the Western provinces. Despite the prior UNMI bombings the Iranian government is working hard to re-consolidate its power. In Tehran, protests become less common as the leadership of such protests continue to be arrested and tracked down by the police and Quds force.

-In northern Afghanistan city of Mazar-e Sharif, some join those Muslims who have yet to come to terms with the fact that some people in the world dislike their religion – as people with grown-up attitudes elsewhere have. Yesterday a crowd of a thousand or so Muslims, outraged after being told by an imam in a Friday sermon about the burning of a Koran by a pastor in the United States a month ago, stormed a UN compound and killed at least 7 UN workers. The not-so-grown-up American pastor, the imam and his murderous mob all believed they were combating evil.

-Today in Kandahar a crowd surged through the streets chanting "They have insulted our Koran." They were only a few people around one pastor largely disrespected in the United States, but the crowd extended they to the whole of the United States with the words "Death to America." The crowd rampaged and nine

-Qatar's English daily, the Peninsula, describes an increase in speculation in the oil futures market. Among the players are Barkleys, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. They are "leading the charge into oil but, in addition, several secretive hedge funds are now wagering hundreds of millions of dollars every day in the oil market and reaping the dividends." More speculators in the market are driving up the price of oil futures, and the rulers of oil exporting countries, perhaps Qatar but definitely Saudi Arabia, dislike being blamed for rises in oil prices.

- Around 250 students demonstrating at Kabul University in Afghanistan shout "Death to America," regarding the burning of a Koran. They are angry about disrespect for Islam while feeding that disrespect and the argument that Islam is a religion that encourages violence.

-The violence in Yemen continues. Eighteen are reported killed since the day before yesterday. Today, fighting is reported between tribesmen loyal to President Saleh and soldiers on the side of anti-Saleh demonstrators.

- In Bahrain, Shia are being described by defenders of the status quo as lazy, ungrateful, sexually odious and as traitors lacking intelligence and education. The Shia are also accused of having conspired with Americans to kill Saddam Hussein (a Sunni) and take over Iraq. All this described here.

-Reports on Bahrain describe a brutally repressive regime that has turned the country into an island of fear.

-The United Arab Emirates joins Bahrain and Syria in oppression. It has arrested activists whose only crime has been calling for reforms.

-In Syria, hundreds have been arrested, and troops continue to encircle the city of Baniyas. There, four people were shot and killed on the weekend, and 28 people were killed on Friday (the 8th) in Daraa. Witnesses have told al-Jazeera that soldiers have been shot for refusing to fire on protesters
while the government complains that its soldiers have been fired upon. But mass defections by soldiers appear unlikely, as does the rise of urban guerrilla armies. Non-violent protests appear powerless, and oppression appears to be the future for Syria.

-In Yemen, for the second day, thousands of Yemeni march against President Ali Abdullah Saleh's claim that women protesting against his regime were violating Islamic prohibitions against women mixing with men who are not direct relatives. He told the women to stay home. Also today, in the capital city the army fires again on anti-government protesters. Ten are reported injured.

-In Syria more widespread protests and three more reported shot and killed – while President Assad tries to apply a little of the liberalism he acquired from the British, including his wife.

-Syria lifts the emergency law that has been in place for 48 years. Peaceful protests are now to be allowed and arbitrary detentions – arrests without a charge – are supposed to end. Early this morning in the city of Homs thousands of demonstrators sitting-in at the city square were fired upon and dispersed. They have been accused of participating in armed insurrection....... 2:30 PM EDT, regime hypocrisy as one hand giveth and the other taketh away: The interior minister calls on people "to refrain from taking part in all marches, demonstrations or sit-ins under any banner whatsoever." He warns that if demonstrations are held, "the laws in force in Syria will be applied in the interest of the safety of the people and the stability of the country."

-In Syria, the tactic of appeasing the demonstrators by ending the emergency laws is failing to give people the sense that they have won something. Syrian authorities are not that talented politically – as they continue their oppression. Today in Homs the regime arrests a protest leader, Mahmoud Issa. Homs is still mourning its dead, and it is preparing for a three-day strike.

-The request has been made that Syria's government show its good intentions by allowing protests to proceed without violent repression. Following Friday prayers, demonstrations again erupt across Syria, and government goon squads in various cities again shoot at protesters. Later today: 88 reported killed.

-In Syria, tanks roll into Daraa. More people die. Around the world are people who are outraged. Tweets on Syria jump to new highs.

-The Assad regime claims that its army was invited to Daraa by citizens to hunt "extremist terrorist groups." Rather than a careful police operation, eight tanks and a claim of between 4,000 and 6,000 troops came to the town of 70,000 before dawn. Writes Anthony Shadid of the New York Times: "Water, electricity and phone lines were cut, making firsthand accounts difficult and the numbers impossible to verify, and nearby border crossings with Jordan were reported sealed. Snipers took positions on the roofs of mosques, residents said, and a mix of soldiers and armed irregular forces went house to house to search for protester

-Britain, Italy, Spain and Portugal expressed their outrage at Syria's crackdown against protesters.

- Robert Kagan criticizes "pragmatists" and complains that "The Muslim Brotherhood is the strongest political force in Egypt today because Mubarak crushed the moderate, secular opposition. And we let him."

-Today is Friday and a "Day of Rage" in Syria. Syria's exiled Muslim Brotherhood calls on Syrians with the words, "You were born free, so don't let the tyrant enslave you." Across Syria, government forces kill at least sixty-two.

-May- In Egypt, President Mubarak's notorious former security chief, Habib al-Adly, is sentenced to twelve years in jail on charges of money-laundering and profiteering.

- It's Friday protest day in several cities in Syria. Six people are reported shot: five in Homs and one in Hama.

-Dr Alia Brahimi, of Oxford and other universities, writes in Al Jazeera that with the death of Bin Laden, al-Qaeda will continue its "descent into nihilistic chaos," dividing into little groupings that will annoy Muslim majorities. She writes that Bin Laden's focus of purpose – defending Islam against the West, however delusional – will dissipate further. She describes al-Qaeda as its own worst enemy, suggesting that Muslims will play a significant role in the demise of a movement.

-It is Friday and people are in the streets in Syria, raising their arms and fists and chanting. The dictator Assad has mustered his generosity and announced that there will be no shooting at demonstrators and that anybody who does will be severely punished. Three are reported dead in the city of Homs, where security forces opened fire on demonstrators. No reports, meanwhile, of protests today in Bahrain. Al Jazeera describes the Bahraini government as having destroyed 28 mosques and Shia religious institutions since the crackdown on Shia-led protests began in Mid-March. Bahrain's Justice Ministry announces that the mosques were torn down because they were not licenced.

-Syrian officials announce that troops and tanks are being pulled out of the cities of Baniyas and Daraa. Dictatorships need at least a cowed and cooperative populace, and after having failed to achieve this by military force and having created more intense hostility toward it, the Assad regime tries another move. It announces that next week a "comprehensive national dialogue" will begin in all provinces.

-A planned protest packs Cairo's Tahrir square for "a Day of Anger." Protesters say they want a faster pace of democratic reforms, and there are expressions of fear that former president Mubarak and his family will be pardoned.

-In Syria, eight more protesters are reported as having been shot and killed yesterday. Also yesterday a few hundred more were born than died, and a few hundred young people grew old enough for political action. A broad section of the public will continue to hate the Assad regime. Even authoritarians need broad support – church authoritarians and political authoritarians. Genghis Khan had the support of his fellow Mongols, and people centuries ago believed in their monarch and looked to him or her for help. Bashar Assad will never be able to rule without brutality.

-Civil war continues in Yemen. More than 50 killed during demonstrations in the city of Taiz after protest leaders warn followers not to "fall into the trap of violence."

-Social change continues in Saudi Arabia as authorities release Manal Al-Sharif, 32, jailed on May 21 for violating the ban on women driving cars.

-June- In the US many believe, as Thomas Jefferson did, that if anyone takes away their existing political freedom they have the right to take up arms. Two days ago, Syrians picked up weapons in an attempt to repel advancing government troops on their towns.

-Yesterday in Syria, Assad declared general amnesty a general pardon for "crimes" committed before 31 May.

-In Yemen yesterday dozens more were killed, and today the fighting intensifies. Behind this is President Saleh's refusal to sign an agreement to step down because he wants his departure accompanied by the departure of the three sons of a political opponent, Sheikh al-Ahmar. An analyst quoted by the BBC, claims: "It is offensive to President Saleh that his relatives will leave and the opponents will stay."

-Syrian Civil War: The BBC reports this morning that more than sixty people were killed yesterday, Friday, in the city of Hama – another day of protests across Syria. State television claimed that about eighty security personnel had been wounded. Yesterday there was no internet in Syria. And foreign journalists are still not allowed in the country.

-June- Syrian Civil War: In the town of Jisr al-Shughour government troops and tanks were in action and there are reports of more than 35 deaths, including at least six policemen. According to the BBC, state TV "showed pictures of burned-out public buildings, police stations and vehicles in Jisr al-Shughour."

-Syrian authorities describe "armed gangs" as responsible for killing more than 120 security personnel three days ago at Jisr al-Shughur. Syrian "activists" say that the security personnel were shot by government troops after they refused to open fire on civilians. Protest leaders in Jisr al-Shughur have denied that those opposed to the Assad regime there have committed any violence. No protest leaders in Syria are publicly suggesting that violence will have to be a part of ending the Assad regime – by freedom fighters rather than terrorists as described by the regime.

-Turkey's prime minister condemns Syria's crackdown on anti-government protesters as "inhumane'' and says Ankara could support a UN resolution against Syria. The foreign minister of Syria resorts to the Orwellian language, complaining that any action the UN Security Council takes against his country would embolden "extremists and terrorists" to continue their crimes. Yesterday (Friday), protests continued across Syria, and the Assad regime, using attack helicopters, killed 25 more people.

-Iraq War: three U.S. troops were killed in a rocket attack on a U.S. base located near the border with Iran. It was speculated that the militant group responsible for the attack was the same one which attacked JSS Loyalty just over three weeks before.

-Yesterday in Syria a most trusted force, the Fourth Brigade, with helicopter gunships and as many as 200 tanks took control of Jisr al-Shughour. The story of Jisr al-Shughour is still being described: On the 5th of this month an army of conscripts sent against the city had defections; some of the defectors were killed; others fled into the hills; and most town folk have fled the city. Yesterday, an anti-Assad force remained and confronted the overwhelmingly superior government force – a violation of the first rule in insurgent warfare. Apparently they were annihilated.

-After wandering around Syria for a week incognito, Lebanese writer and scholar Fawaz Gerges reminds us that the world still has many people willing to support a murderous dictator. Gerges reports that the Assad regime has support of something like 40 percent of the people, that the protests are not as large as have occurred in Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen and that the Assad regime may be able to hold on to power.

-In various cities in Syria, people attend rallies in support of President Assad. In Damascus, Rateb Shallah, head of the Syrian Chambers of Commerce Federation, expresses confidence in another speech by Assad that promises reforms. Says Shallah: "I hope it will be a turning point in solving the crisis and that it will meet the demands of the Syrian people.

-Pakistan's army is described by Fareed Zakaria as the big power in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region with the coming draw down of US troops from Afghanistan – announced last night by President Obama. Zakaria writes that the evidence is now overwhelming that Pakistan's army, traditionally secular, is now "infiltrated at all levels by violent Islamists, including Taliban and al-Qaeda sympathizers."

-In Syria, the Assad regime has done something that appears clever. Yesterday it allowed and it apparently organized a group of dissidents to meet openly in a hotel in Damascus to discuss Syria's political crisis. The well publicized meeting fits with President Assad's call for a national dialogue. It also threatens to divide the protest movement and diminish those protesters who say that the only solution is for Assad to go.

-War in North-West Pakistan: Pakistani authorities announced a victory over the insurgents in Orakzai and Kurram.

-Sinai Insurgency: Since the 2011 uprising against the Mubarak regime in Egypt, there has been increasing instability in the Sinai Peninsula. In addition the collapse of the Libyan regime increased the quantity and sophistication of weapons being smuggled into the area. The situation provided local Bedouin with an opportunity to assert their authority, leading to clashes with Egyptian security forces, but the cause of violence soon transitioned to salafi jihadism

-Iraq War: American forces in Iraq continue to aid in the training of Iraqi Security Forces.

-Chinese diplomats extend assurances to President Assad of Syria that China backs his regime against reactionary Ideologies.

Jopolin tornado aftermath in Missouri.


-April- The Mexican town of Cherán is taken over by vigilantes in response to abuses from the local drug cartel. The new government is strongly focused on crime reduction and preserving the local environment.

-The 2011 Super Outbreak forms in the Southern, Midwest and Eastern United States with a tornado count of 362; killing 324 and injuring over 2,200.

-In Cuba at a Communist Party congress, President Raul Castro proposes term limits in an effort to advance politics and Cuba's Communist Party The limits he says would also apply to him.

-May- The 2011 Joplin tornado, an EF5 tornado, strikes Joplin, Missouri, killing 158 and injuring 1,150

- In Canada's elections yesterday, the Conservative Party, led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, won a majority of seats in parliament: 167. The New Democratic Party (NDP) climbs to second place with 102 seats, and the Liberals fall to third place with 34. Seats for the French separatist party, Bloc Quebecois, drop from 47 to 4. In the election campaigning, Prime Minister Harper made no promise to change course by abolishing Canada's national health system. Harper is talking about lowering taxes, but his tax policies have been high enough to put Canada's revenues for the year 2010 at 45.8% of its GDP (above Australia and just below Germany) compared to 14% for the United States.

- At the Washington Post, Richard Cohen writes of "The Myth of American Exceptionalism." He describes it as part of a "culture of smugness" that holds to the notion that the US alone among nations "is beloved of God" – as if God takes an interest in international political boundaries. Cohen faults various leading Republicans for invoking this brand of exceptionalism.

- US Senator John McCain, describes waterboarding interrogations as torture and says, "As such, they are prohibited by American laws and values, and I oppose them." He adds that CIA Director Leon Panetta told him the following: "The trail to bin Laden did not begin with a disclosure from Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who was waterboarded 183 times."

-The report is out on the mine explosion that trapped and killed twenty-nine coal miners in West Virginia in April, 2010. The report faulted the mine owner, Massey Energy corporation, and found the US Mine Safety and Health Administration lax in its oversight and that it "failed its duty as the watchdog for coal miners." (Reported in detail on the News Hour on May 19, 2010)

-June-Yesterday in the US, in response to news of a "sharp slowdown in hiring and a small increase in the unemployment rate," Speaker of the House John Boehner addressed the employment issue, saying: "We can't raise taxes on the very people who create jobs..." Some who dislike Boehner's economics complain that big corporations, rather than short of money to invest, are sitting on piles of cash and have been sending money abroad.

-US Democratic Senator Jim Webb complains that our strategy in Afghanistan of securing an area and moving on is not working because the areas do not stay secured. Republican Senator Richard Lugar says "Despite ten years of investment and attempts to better understand the culture and the region's actors, we remain in a cycle that produces relative progress, but fails to deliver a secure political or military resolution." President Obama's new ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan Crocker, awaiting confirmation, has a different view. He is among those still terrified by bin Laden. He says that "much work remains to be done to ensure that al-Qaida can never again threaten us from Afghanistan, with the Taliban providing safe haven."

-Speaking before the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, US Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell speaks of fire seasons that have lengthened by more than 30 days and that "Our scientists believe this is due to a change in climate." Senator Al Franken, Democrat from Minnesota, suggests to his fellow committee members that they consider climate change as a key issue. Senator James Risch, Republican from Idaho, complains that Franken lacks a degree in fire science or natural resources. Risch received a BS degree in forestry in 1965.

Australian troops being mobilized.
-Australia mobilizes 2 land units and 4 air units.

-May- The Australian Climate Commission complains that climate science is being attacked in the media by people with no credentials in the field – people questioning that human emissions are causing global warming. Australia is one of the highest per capita carbon emitters, and the government seeks public support for its proposed carbon tax.

-June- An article by BBC News has described Indonesian moderates as becoming "more vocal" in their opposition to the militant Islamism represented by The Islamic Defenders Front (FPI). According to the article, "A recent survey found that almost half of high school pupils around Jakarta approved of the use of violence in the name of religion and morality."

The Colombian government declares a state of emergency an posts the military at check points along the Colombian-Venezuelan boarder.


-April- Venezuela continues to suffer horrifically from the unnamed disease that swept through Caracas. Venezuelan military personnel have abandoned their posts around the city, fearing for the safety of their families and deserting. Other troop formations closer to Caracas have become infected and are thus destroyed as units. The United States has offered to send doctors and medical personnel. President Hugo Chavez has denied them entry into the country however, stating his mistrust of the USA and it's motives to help a long time political adversary. The people of Caracas react differently, they are desperate for aid, no matter the country of origin. The disease has become present in the boarder regions of Colombia. The Colombian government sends the country into a state of emergency.

-May- Brazil's Supreme Court rules in favor of legal rights for persons in homosexual unions the same rights as those for married heterosexuals.

-Argentine authorities have arrested three former policemen accused of having participated in throwing a nun, Leonie Duque, and a rights activist, Azucena Villaflor, from an airplane over the ocean in 1977. The military dictatorship under Jorge Videla wanted Argentina protected from these two peaceful political opponents. Writes the BBC: "Hundreds of political prisoners are known to have died this way."

-In Colombia, the cities of Barranquilla, Cartagena, and Medellin are all suffering from what has come to be called Pulmon Blanco, or White lung in English.

-June- Chile's Puyehue volcano erupts, causing air traffic cancellations across South America, New Zealand and Australia, and forcing over 3,000 people to evacuate

Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas.


-July- The United Nations declares a famine in southern Somalia, the first in over 30 years

-September- At the United Nations yesterday Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas received a standing ovation by the General Assembly as he submitted a bid for UN recognition of a Palestinian state. He wants pre-1967 borders and describes Israeli settlement building as colonial military occupation and an obstacle to resolution with Israel. A UNGA vote is anticipated in October.

A drone strike annihilates Rebel Libyan leadership.


-July- Nigeria's president since early 2010, Goodluck Jonathan, asks members of parliament to amend the constitution to limit presidents to one-term in office. With this, he says, politicians would focus more on governance and less on re-election. Jonathan is an example of a new breed of leader coming to the fore in Africa.

-August- South Africa's high speed train is up and running between the cities of Pretoria and Johannesburg – a 20 minute trip. During rush hour by car the trip can take a couple of hours. The train's top speed is 100 miles per hour, and it cost 3.8 billion dollars to put into operation.
-An inter-ethnic war over resources in South Sudan has killed at least 500 people. There is competition for land and water resources, and Murle pastoralists are accused of aggression. An estimated 40,000 cattle have been stolen – with people dependent on their livestock for food. Villages have been burned to the ground.

Libyan Civil War: Libyan rebels are brought to heel by Gadaffi's forces throughout the country. Rebel leadership was targeted by Werewolf PMC and has reportedly perished in a drone attack. It would appear the the rebellion in Libya has failed. Those arrested cry out that the democratic nations of the world have failed them in realizing their dream of a Libya free of Gadaffi. Gaddafi's forces also uncovered stashes of Carl Gustav launchers on a dock outside of Tripoli meant for the Libyan rebels. It appears that the rebels in Tunisia will face a similar fate as those in Libya as plans of intervention from Libyan funded PMC's has been announced by the Tunisian government if protests do not end.

Somali Civil War: Al-Shabaab was forced to withdraw from most areas of Mogadishu.

Sinai Insurgency: Operation Eagle was launched, in an effort to restore law and order, driving Islamist insurgents and criminal gangs out of North Sinai's urban centers. As well as, attempting to sever the link between militant groups in the Sinai and Gaza, by augmenting its control over the Gaza border crossing.

-September- Today is the deadline for Libya's ambassador to leave Zimbabwe – kicked out for supporting Libya's new anti-Gaddafi regime. Zimbabwe's authoritarian ruler, Robert Mugabe, supports Gaddafi.

-Hundreds of people are dying every day in Somalia's famine, according to reports. The UN estimates that four million people, more than half of Somalia's population, are living in famine zones – mostly in the south of the country, still controlled by Islamic extremists. The UN's food agency, the World Food Program, prohibits its staff from moving beyond the airport military base at Somalia's largest city and capital, Mogadishu, and the UN agency is having trouble finding shipping companies willing to send their vessels to Mogadishu through the pirate-infested waters.

- Rupiah Banda of Zambia expresses satisfaction that the election he lost on September 20 was done in a democratic and civilized way. The new president, Michael Sata, is sworn in today and speaks of his commitment to the rule of law and to fighting poverty and corruption.

-Approximately 100 people die after a petrol pipeline explodes in Nairobi.

-Operation Enduring Freedom-Horn of Africa: , a Spanish Navy patrol boat engaged Somali pirates, freeing a French hostage after sinking the pirate skiff and capturing 7 pirates. The woman was taken hostage after pirates killed her husband and left her catamaran off the coast of Yemen.

Civil War in Gindra: With fighting in Libya winding down, William Weah has approached Gaddafi about funding PMC's to help crush the rebels in Gindra. William Weah has also stated that he has interest in Gaddafi's proposal about forming a 'United States of Africa'.

Thai troops move to stage a counter attack against Cambodian forces.


-July- Democracy triumphs in the Kingdom of Thailand. The new prime minister will be Yingluck Shinawatra, sister of exiled Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted by a military coup and was the hero of Red Shirt protesters and much of the rural population. Affluent urbanites disliked his reforms and higher taxes. The outgoing prime minister concedes victory to his rival – Thailand's first woman prime minister.

-5 ROK units on the former DMZ are sent North into the Northern region of the PTSO occupied zone. Funds are allocated to re-open the Kaesong Industrial Region. Further development is encouraged in addition. Local leaders are in the process of being established so that a National assembly for the zone may be formed.

-In Thailand over 12.8 million people are affected by severe flooding. The World Bank estimates damages at 1,440 billion baht (US$45 billion). Some areas are still six feet under water, and many factory areas remain closed at the end of the year. 815 people are killed, with 58 of the country's 77 provinces affected.

-In Malaysia, 1,650 are arrested (according to the police) for participating in an illegal protest in Kuala Lumpur. Protests are allowed, but a permit was not given for a large protest in the capital. Rally organizers want electoral reforms and fair coverage by government-linked news media.

- In Malaysia, Ms Kamariah Ali belongs to a sect that believes in the healing powers and purity of water. She describes herself as no longer a Muslim. Malaysia is 60 percent Muslim. Malaysia's civil court has ruled that she must be tried in an Islamic court because she is a Muslim, and there she will be tried for apostasy.

-Russian forces deployed on the Western boarder of China have been withdrawn to their bases.

Maoist-Naxalite Insurgency: Maoist rebels in the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh blew up a bridge, killing four people and wounding five others. The attack happened when the Congress party chief of the state, Nandkumar Patel, was returning from a party function.

-August- In India citizens are fed up with what they describe as corruption of the political class. The crusading leader of the movement, Anna Hazare, started a hunger strike because only part of his proposed legislation has government support. The government has arrested Hazare to protect him from himself, and today tens of thousands are in the streets for him, demonstrating their support.

-In India, anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare has agreed to the government's offer that he leave prison. Hazare's aides say he will extend his hunger strike for fifteen days in a public park. Hazare wants no watered-down compromise version of his proposed anti-corruption legislation, and Prime Minister Singh accuses him of trying to circumvent democracy.

-The South Korean government devotes a very large chunk of money to re-construction and cleanup efforts within South Korea. The affect of which has proven to be effective in getting people back to their normal lives in small to moderately affected areas of the country.

Serbian war criminal, Goran Hadžić transported through Belgrade amid an angry mob.


-July- Goran Hadžić is detained in Serbia, becoming the last of 161 people indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

-The Russian Air Force announces plans to modernize the Tupolev Tu-22M strategic bomber with top of the line avionics and weaponry. (L4 SB Q4 2012).

-The United Kingdom invests in building state of the art RADAR stations throughout mainland Britain. A home grown GPS system is also being developed. American analysts predict the move could be the beginning of an effort to fortify NATO countries against future threats Russia may pose.

-August- Stock exchanges worldwide suffer heavy losses due to the fears of contagion of the European sovereign debt crisis and the credit rating downgraded as a result of the debt-ceiling crisis of the United States.

-The Russian government announces intentions to design a reusable rocket to further space exploration. The program is grossly underfunded and Western Analysts do not predict much in the way of a future unless more money is allocated to the program.

-The British government has taken steps to increase security measures of government buildings and those associated with the monarch. Security has been beefed up, and previously open areas, closed to the public. They have essentially become 'hard targets' for any terrorist cell that could have them selected as a target. The security increase is met with understanding from the British public, the assassination of US President James Johnson.

-2 new French naval units have been formed. Japan and France are now tied for second largest navy in the world after the United States.

-September- Amid public debate, Italy's conservative government is revising its austerity package. Sales taxes are due to rise, a balance-the-budget law is to be put into the constitution, and changes to the retirement age will be made. The Italian General Confederation of Labour (CGIL), Italy's most powerful trade union (5.5 million members) is striking, and it demands stronger action against tax dodgers.

-The liberal-conservative coalition in power in Denmark was talking about keeping Denmark on its successful path of sustainable economic growth. But a close election two days ago is bringing to power a left-of-center coalition led by Social Democrat Helle Thorning-Schmidt, 44, who will be Denmark's first woman prime minister. She is reported as having campaigned on a platform of tax rises and increased public spending. Meanwhile, Denmark's revenues are almost 80% of its GDP compared to 14.2% in 2010 for the United States. Denmark's unemployment rate is around 4.2% compared to 9.1% for the United States. Denmark's national debt is something like half that of the United States, and the Danes worry about the US economy because the US is a buyer of their exports.

-Fear of economic disaster in Europe abounds. Greece owes more money than it can possibly pay. Euro countries, Britain and Republicans in the US are in an austerity mode while some economists, Austan Goolsbee in the US among them, speak of austerity as not providing the growth needed to emerge from the crises. Paul Krugman complains that some in Europe "don't seem at all ready to acknowledge a crucial fact – namely, that without more expansionary fiscal and monetary policies in Europe's stronger economies, all of their rescue attempts will fail." Goolsbee states that it is crucial that focus now be put on economic growth rather than austerity. Economic growth, of course, increases revenues, and revenues are needed to pay down debt.

-Germany continues expansion of its electric grid project. The areas of focus being Switzerland, Austria and the Western Balkans.

-The British invest in their merchant shipping industry in an effort to spur growth in British trade networks.

Syrian troops en route to Hama.


-July- Yesterday in Syria after Friday prayers hundreds of thousands marched nationwide. Human rights groups say that at least 24 people were killed by security forces. The Assad regime has begun to allow foreign journalists into the country, and one of them, Deborah Amos of National Public Radio, reported from Syria yesterday on the News Hour that the city of Hama was being run by protesters. She spoke of some Syrians afraid of the protesters because they didn't know who the protesters were. This involved the tolerance of brutalities by people not themselves under attack, people supporting the peace and stability that dictators love.

-Syrian Civil War: A half million or hundreds of thousands in the Syrian city of Hama are reported to have taken to the streets today. They treat the ambassadors from France and from the United States as heroes. Many are carrying olive branches and chanting: "We only kneel to God." One proclaims: "As long as we have no security forces, we have no violence." Elsewhere across Syria today, according to reports, at least 14 are killed, including six in a Damascus suburb.

-Another Friday and more of the Assad regime dialogueing with bullets. According to Aljazeera, the "biggest protests so far" occurred today, and "14 protesters have been killed across Syria."

-Syrian Civil War: The city of Hama has been described as 80 percent with the protesters and 20 percent "opposed or unsure." Youths in the city are organizing defensive positions against government forces and documenting the missing and dead. People are gathering as they did in Cairo in February and they are singing songs, including one which has become an anthem: "Come on Bashar, leave." Ibrahim Qashoush became prominent singing these songs at rallies until earlier this month when he was snatched away. The next day his body was pulled from a river. His throat had been cut and his vocal cords ripped out.

-Houthi Insurgency in Yemen: over 120 people were killed as the Houthis launched an offensive to take over government buildings in al-Jawf. Fighting in Jawf lasted for four months, in which time Sunni tribes claimed to have killed 470 Houthis, while acknowledging 85 casualties of their own. The Houthis eventually took control of al-Jawf governorate.

-August- Amnesty International complained that the UN Security Council's lack of response to the recent bloodshed in Syria is "completely inadequate." The Amnesty spokesperson added that, "The UN must act now, with a firm and legally binding position. At the very least, its position must include imposing an arms embargo, freezing the assets of President al-Assad and other officials suspected of responsibility for crimes against humanity, and referring the situation to the ICC Prosecutor," Amnesty International has received the names of more than 1,500 people believed to have been killed since pro-reform protests began in mid-March.

-Syrian Civil War: Armed offenses into cities and towns by the Assad regime continue – the latest in the northeast of Syria. Meanwhile, Saudi King Abdullah has denounced the offensives as unacceptable, and this has encouraged Syria's Sunni population. Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait have withdrawn their ambassadors from Syria. Turkey's foreign minister yesterday urged Assad to stop killing protesters. Syria's state-run news agency has responded defiantly to Assad's critics by announcing the government's will to relentlessly fight "terrorist groups," referring to the few who have armed themselves rather than present themselves for slaughter. The majority of protesters remain non-violent with hope of more erosion of support for Assad within the country.

Female protesters in Jakarta, furious at its Governor.


-September- In Jakarta dozens of women wearing miniskirts protest, one sign reading: "My miniskirt, my right." Another sign reads, "Don't tell us how to dress; tell them not to rape." Jakarta's governor, Fauzi Bowo, responds with an apology for warning females that they can avoid being raped by not wearing short skirts.

American medical personnel attempting to calm a Pulmo Blanco victim in detainment in Colombia.


-July-Argentinian President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner met with Colombias President with an offer to send medical teams and researchers to Colombia to aid in combating Pulmo Blanco. Colomibia has indicated it would accept the medical personnel and researchers offered.

-Argentine diplomats have met with the President of Ecuador. A recommendation to pardon rebels that were once part of the police and military is brought up. However the President of Ecuador was not moved from his position that the rebels would not lay down their arms for a pardon, as they wish the previous regime be re-established.

-Presidential elections in Argentina are approaching fast. Pablo Pereyra, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Argentina (Extraordinary Congress) is running against Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. . Pablo Pereyra has been heavily critical of the Presidents lack of action on Argentina's inflation issue, an issue she has blamed on imperialism and class conflict. Pablo Pereyra has been appealing both to the younger voters and more hardliner/traditional segments of Peronism as well as disillusioned Kirchnerists. He points out that Kirchner's authoritarianism has rendered the citizen as a mere spectator, unable to contest government policies. Early rallies have shown a growing number of supporters for Pablo Pereyra. it is uncertain however if Pablo Pereyra can beat President Kirchner in October.

-August- In Chile, a commission investigating human rights abuses during the reign of General Pinochet (1973-90) adds 9,800 more people to a list of persons held as political prisoners and tortured, raising the total of recognized victims to 40,018.

-Argentine medical teams and researchers are sent to Colombia and Venezuela. Research teams are eager to discover the cause behind Pulmo Blanco's quick spread.

-The United States has sent doctors and medical personnel to the Colombia, Guyana, and Brazil. All medical teams have been statoned near the shared Venezuelan boarder of the mentioned nations. Their mission statement is to prevent the spread of the disease outside of Venezuela. The teams in Colombia have drawn suspicion considering Plumo Blanco has already spread past the Colombian-Venezuelan boarder. Recent reports have indicated outbreaks in Panama city, San Jose, Quito, and Managua.
