U.S. maneuvers threaten war with Russia

first_imgOn April 9, the Turkish officials announced to Russian counterparts that Washington, as it must by treaty, had informed them that in the following week the U.S. would send two warships to the Black Sea, which also borders Russia and Ukraine. This is part of the extended framework of tension that the U.S. has introduced in the region. Dinucci’s April 13 article in Il Manifesto (an Italian web newspaper) explains the framework of the growing crisis. Translation: John Catalinotto.Ukraine’s neo-Nazis killed dozens of activists by burning down Trade Union House, May 2, 2014.U.S. F-16 fighter jets, sent from the Aviano base, are engaged in “complex air operations” in Greece, where the Iniochos 21 exercise began April 12. They belong to the 510th Fighter Squadron stationed at Aviano, northern Italy, whose role is indicated by their emblem: the symbol of the atom, with three lightning bolts striking the earth, flanked by the imperial eagle. Thus they are nuclear attack aircraft, the ones used by the U.S. Air Force in Greece, which in 2020 conceded to the United States the use of all its military bases.Also participating in Iniochos 21 are F-16 and F-15 fighter-bombers from Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The exercise takes place on the Aegean Sea close to the area that includes the Black Sea and Ukraine, where the massive exercise Defender-Europe 21 of the U.S. Army is concentrated.These and other military maneuvers, which turn Europe into a big arms depot, increase tensions with Russia, especially regarding Ukraine. NATO, after having torn apart the Yugoslav Federation with international war actions in 1995 and 1999 to exacerbate Yugoslavia’s internal fractures, now sets itself up as the champion of Ukraine’s territorial integrity.The chair of the NATO Military Committee, British Royal Air Force Chief Stuart Peach, while meeting in Kiev with Ukrainian President Vlodymyr Zelensky and Chief of Staff Ruslan Khomchak, declared that “NATO Allies are united in their condemnation of Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea and its aggressive actions in eastern Ukraine.” (, April 7)Peach thus repeated the false narrative that Russia forcibly annexed Crimea in 2014, while ignoring the fact that Crimean Russians decided in a referendum to secede from Ukraine and rejoin Russia to avoid being attacked by neo-Nazi battalions in Kiev, like the Russians in Donbass were.The U.S. and anti-Russian Ukrainians used the same neo-Nazis in 2014 as a strike force in the Maidan Square putsch — which was triggered by Georgian snipers who fired on demonstrators and policemen. They were used also in subsequent actions: putting villages to fire and sword; burning alive dozens of activists in the Odessa Trade Unions House; massacring unarmed civilians in the city of Mariupol; and attacking in Donetsk and Lugansk, then-Ukrainian provinces, with white phosphorus bombs.The Maidan action was a bloody coup under the direction of the U.S./NATO, with the strategic aim of provoking a new Cold War in Europe. The aim was to isolate Russia and strengthen, at the same time, the influence and military presence of the United States in Europe.The conflict in the Donbass, whose populations are now self-organized in the Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk with their own popular militia, has gone through a period of relative truce with the opening of the Minsk talks for a peaceful solution. Now, however, the Ukrainian government has withdrawn from the talks, refusing to go to Minsk, using the pretext that Belarus is not a democratic country.At the same time the Kiev forces have resumed armed attacks in the Donbass [Donetsk and Lugansk]. Chief of Staff Khomchak, whom Stuart Peach praised on behalf of NATO for his “commitment to a peaceful resolution of the conflict in eastern Ukraine,” said that the Kiev army “is preparing for the offensive in eastern Ukraine” and that in this operation “the participation of NATO allies is expected.”It is no coincidence that the conflict in Donbass was rekindled when, under the Biden administration, Antony Blinken took office as secretary of state. His grandparents born in Ukraine, Blinken was the principal director of the Maidan Square putsch as deputy national security advisor in the Obama-Biden administration.As deputy secretary of state, Biden appointed Victoria Nuland, who in 2014 was the assistant-director of the U.S. operation in the Maidan Square, costing more than $5 billion. She said this was to establish “good governance” in Ukraine.It is possible that at this point the U.S. strategists have a plan: to promote an offensive of Kiev forces in the Donbass, effectively supported by NATO. Such an offensive would confront Moscow with a choice that would in any case be to Washington’s advantage: Either Moscow can allow the Russian populations of Donbass to be massacred or must intervene militarily in their support.One plays with fire, and not figuratively speaking, by lighting the fuse of a bomb in the heart of Europe.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena opens Tuesday for dedication

first_imgTwitter The new basketball arena opened Tuesday for a dedication. The new Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena opened Tuesday for a dedication featuring a ribbon cutting and the opportunity for alumni and visitors to explore the $72 million renovation.Chancellor Victor Boschini opened the dedication and thanked the hundreds of donors present for their contributions.The dedication featured guests such as members of the Fort Worth city council, Mayor Betsy Price, cheerleaders, showgirls, Superfrog and many TCU alumni, fans and donors.Ed Schollmaier spoke to the crowd about his and his wife Rae’s love of basketball and athletics. Mrs. Schollmaier died in October at the age of 81.He brought up how he and his wife met their freshman year of college at the University of Cincinnati and how basketball always played an important role in their marriage.Schollmaier said everything about the new arena was enhanced and state-of-the-art. He kept the audience laughing with his humor and interesting stories about his past.The chairman to the TCU Board of Trustees, Clarence Scharbauer III, said he was amazed by the transformation of the arena.“I would say this is the finest facility in basketball today,” Scharbauer said.Chris Del Conte, the director of intercollegiate athletics, said the arena wouldn’t have been possible without Boschini’s constant vision.“TCU starts and ends with his vision: the things he takes on and the ideas he has for our school,” Del Conte said.Boschini said this arena was all for the athletes and to improve the athletic experience overall.TCU women’s basketball player Zahna Medley said the facility was more than just a place to play games.“This arena represents more than just a place to play basketball,” Medley said. “It represents goals for our championships. It is the start of a new era for TCU.”The head coaches of men and women’s basketball also spoke about the improvement of the arena.The dedication ended with a ribbon cutting by many donors, athletic directors, the mayor, TCU student body president Maddie Reddick and basketball players.Fall graduation will be held Saturday as the first major event in the new arena. The opening was originally delayed due to weather.The $72 million renovation features a new Jane Justin Hall of Fame, courtside seating, new concessions stands, larger locker rooms and a new student section.“The new arena is truly a wonderful new hub for TCU Athletics,” Scharbauer said.As Del Conte said, “At the end of the day, TCU will last forever.” ReddIt The new basketball arena opened Tuesday for a dedication. + posts Kristen Weaver TCU will host Iowa State at the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena Saturday, with tip-off set for 3 p.m. Kristen Weaver Starting the conversation about eating disorders on campus It’s official: Caylin Moore is a Rhodes Scholar Twitter Kristen Weaver is a junior journalism and Spanish major from Plano, Texas, and a managing editor for the109.

Another journalist gunned down, fourth since start of 2012

first_imgNews May 3, 2021 Find out more Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago May 9, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Another journalist gunned down, fourth since start of 2012 PhilippinesAsia – Pacific News Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped Follow the news on Philippines News News Organisation February 16, 2021 Find out more Photo credit: Cesar Lanos_______________________07/05/2012 – Another journalist murdered, police attacks on mediaReporters Without Borders is very concerned about the climate of violence and hostility for the Philippine media, which has just been underscored by another murder, last week’s fatal shooting of Rommel “Jojo” Palma, a driver and journalist with dxMC-Bombo Radyo in Koronadal, on the southern island of Mindanao.It is particularly disturbing that policemen have been behind attacks and threats to journalists and their families in recent weeks. Some have even been involved in murders or murder attempts. Judicial proceedings against journalists and other forms of obstruction of the media are also on the increase.“We offer our condolences to Rommel Palma’s family and friends,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His murder must be properly investigated as soon as possible. It must not go unpunished as the murders of journalists Dennis Cuesta, Christopher Guarin and Aldion Layao have until now. Impunity is particularly disturbing when – instead of doing their job of protecting the public – some police officers abuse their authority and perpetuate the use of violence against those who expose their illegal and criminal activities.“We appeal again to President Benigno Aquino to take effective measures to protect journalists and to impose exemplary punishments on criminal networks and police officers who act outside the law. References to the media’s ‘negative’ impact on the country’s image are being used as a smokescreen to avoid tackling the root of the evil. They do not help to address the most urgent problem, the violence to which journalists are constantly exposed.”Palma murderAged 31, Palma was gunned down by two individuals on a Honda TMX motorcycle on 30 April while waiting in the carpark outside the South Cotabato regional hospital in Koronadal, to which he had just driven another reporter. Shot four times in the neck and back, he was pronounced dead at 5:45 a.m. by the hospital’s doctors.The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines quoted dxMC-Bombo Radyo manager Hermie Legaspi as saying the police suspected two men, so far identified only by the aliases of Bobot and Hagibis, who had gone to Palma’s Koronadal home asking for him on 22 April, at a time when he was not there.Palma, who presented local news reports and weather forecasts on dxMC-Bombo Radyo, was the second journalist to be killed in Mindanao island’s South Cotabato region this year. His death follows that of Christopher Guarin, the editor of Tatak News Nationwide and a host on radio station dxMD, who was ambushed and killed near the city of General Santos on 5 January. The alleged killed, Marvin Palabrica, is still at large.New development in 2008 Cuesta murderThere was a new development in the Dennis Cuesta case on 5 April when, during a radio interview, onetime police informant Jade Isa accused former police inspector Redempto “Boy” Acharon of planning to murder Alex Josol, the manager of General Santos-based dxMD Radio Mindanao Network and two other people, department of justice employee Badong Ramos and Cuesta’s widow, Gloria Cuesta.Acharon’s alleged motive for wanting to kill them was to stop them shedding light on the murder of Cuesta, a radio dxMD talkshow host who was gunned down in General Santos in August 2008. Acharon was accused of the murder but eluded arrest and the case was shelved in 2010. Isa said he was present at meetings in November 2011 and February 2012 at which Acharon planned to kill the three with his cousin’s help.Cuesta’s widow reacted to these allegations by writing to the justice minister and President Aquino to demand the reopening of the investigation into Cuesta’s murder and an investigation into Acharon’s alleged subsequent triple murder plans. Josol, for his part, asked the police to provide him with protection but they have not as yet responded to his request.ProsecutionA regional court in the city of Iloilo, on the central island of Panay, issued arrests warrants on 11 April for Junep Ocampo, the editor of The News Today (TNT), and Manuel “Boy” Mejorada, one of his columnists, making each of them pay bail of 10,000 pesos (179 euros) to avoid arrest.The warrants were the latest development in a libel action by Iloilo mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, who is suing them for 15.2 millions de pesos (272,000 euros) over an 8 November 2011 column headlined “Body of Evidence” in which Mejorada accused Mabilog of misusing a donation he had received as the founder and chairman of an Iloilo-based foundationIloilo prosecutor Honorio Aragona Jr. announced on 3 February that criminal libel charges would be brought against Mejorada and Ocampo over the article. They would be given the chance to demonstrate that it was written “in good faith and in pursuit of the public good” at their trial, he said.ThreatsIn the case of Aldion Layao, a radio journalist and local politician gunned down on 8 April near his home in Lacson, on the outskirts of Davao City (on Mindanao island), the Mindanao Times has reported that his widow, Rica Layao, was threatened at gunpoint on 24 April by Lacson police officer Gerardo Padillo after she said he might have been involved in the murder. Padillo was immediately arrested.In the northern city of Olongapo, Mahatma Randy Datu, a reporter for the Manila-based Pilipino Star Ngayon (Filipino Star Today), was openly threatened by Olongapo police chief Christopher Tambungan when he and other reporters went to cover a hostage-taking on 3 April.Tambungan had asked the media to come at the hostage-taker’s request but, when he saw Datu, he shouted: “What’s your name? What are you doing here? You are not needed here.” He seized him by the shoulders and physically ejected him from the compound where the hostages were being held. Datu’s account is confirmed by a radio dzMM reporter.Datu filed a complaint against Tambungan on 23 April accusing him of threats, coercion and slander. Rejecting Datu’s account, Tambungan said he simply asked the journalists to leave because they were upsetting the hostage-taker. He went on to accuse Datu and fellow Pilipino Star Ngayon reporter Alex Galang of writing “negative” articles about him. Datu had previously accused Tambungan of taking bribes from night-club owners.Despite all the threats to journalists, President Aquino’s address to the Philippine Press Institute’s annual National Press Forum on 23 April emphasized what he called the media’s “negativism,” which he said was hurting tourism and the country’s image. His comments were immediate condemned by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines.There has been no let-up in the level of violence against the media in the Philippines in 2012. Three journalists have been killed since the start of the year and two others have survived murder attempts. The violence is often the work of paramilitary groups and private militias, which are on the list of “predators of freedom of information” that Reporters Without Borders issued this month. RSF_en June 1, 2021 Find out more to go further Help by sharing this information PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa Reporters Without Borders is shocked to learn that Nestor Libaton, a reporter for Catholic Church-run radio dxHM, was gunned down yesterday afternoon in Mati, the capital of Davao Oriental province on the southern island of Mindanao.The press freedom organization offers its condolences to his wife and their four children and urges the authorities to do everything to shed light on his death. He was the fourth journalist to be killed in the Philippines this year.Aged 45, Libaton had worked for the same station for the past 20 years. He was shot several times by men on a motorcycle as he returned with fellow journalist Eldon Cruz from an interview in nearby Tarragona.The motive is not yet known but the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) quoted colleagues of Libaton as saying they thought it could be linked to his work. The other three journalists killed since the start of the year are Rommel “Jojo” Palma (on 30 April), Aldion Layao (on 8 April) and Christopher Guarin (on 5 January).In a separate development, the NUJP quoted Michael James “Dacoycoy” Licuanan, a reporter and commentator on Bombo Radyo in the city of Cagayan de Oro (on Mindanao island), as saying he received an SMS message on 5 May containing death threats.It followed an anonymous call to the station at the end of last month complaining about his impassioned coverage of drug trafficking. Licuanan’s coverage of sensitive stories has got him into trouble in the past and he sustained a gunshot injury in an apparent murder attempt on 24 November. Receive email alertslast_img read more

Four persons have been fatally shot by the unit in recent months. Gwengi has written several articles accusing the QRT of corruption and condemning the brutality of its raids and, in January, he reported being threatened by a QRT officer. The police said they arrested him for inciting Usenge’s residents to use violence against the unit.Kenya is ranked 95th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. last_img read more
