Reopened: Research for Sub-Atomic Processes

These days the Large Hadron Collider LHC in Geneva is being reactivated after its maintenance stop in December 2015.

As a consequence, the run for information about sub-atomic particles and processes has been reopened. Scientists from all over the world, engaged in the LHC project, are convinced that last year's confirmation of Higgs bosons being involved in sub-atomic processes is only a starting point. Even more remarkable results might be achieved sooner or later this year.

Here an evaluation by two scientists from CERN, the international center of nuclear research that is operating the LHC facility in Geneva:

North Korean Threats - What's Behind ?

فيديو دعائي.. كوريا الشمالية توجه ضربة نووية لواشنطن

Propaganda video: North Korea directing a nuclear blow at Washington.

[Source: Al-Arabiya on March 27, 2016]


The miniaturization of North Korean nukes could finish with
blowing up America: THAAD missile defence is "mere joke".

The Chinese article is pointing out that there is no need to apply the U.S. developed THAAD system in South Korea as the North is not interested in delivering a nuclear blow on the U.S. by means of an intercontinental missile. Kim Jong Un's policy is only considered to underline that "some fearless men" might be sufficient to terrorize a country as could recently be seen in the aftermath of the Brussels attacks.

Editor's Note:
The so-called Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system is using an enhanced version of U.S. made Patriot missiles to intercept aggressing missiles.
In February 2016, the Pentagon announced that a Patriot Advance Capability-3 (Pac-3) missile system was moved from Fort Bliss in Texas to the Osan Air Base near Seoul, alongside two existing batteries. The Pac-3 system, with an altitude of up to 40 kilometres and a maximum speed of Mach 5, can intercept short- and medium-range missiles, such as the North Korean Scud and Rodong missiles.
Some sources are looking at the installation of the THAAD system in South Korea as part of an indirect threat that is aiming at neighbouring China rather than North Korea.

A promotion tour of North Korea's Singing Army Girls, the ultimate propaganda tool of
Kim JongUn. Their concert tour should have taken place from 12-14th December 2015
at the " National Centre for the Performing Arts " in Beijing. It combined revolutionary
songs with reminders of the Korean War. That must have been the group's last program
in China after which president Xi JinPing allegedly refused to attend their performance,
such putting an end to N Korea's so-called "Spice Girls Diplomacy" towards China. The
pro-Chinese music show, however, was comprehensively covered by some TV stations
in China / Taiwan that presented the appetizing female army detachment side by side
with news on N Korea's disputed H-bomb test and its missile capabilities.

TV pictures: North Korea's singing army girls "hurriedly flying back to Pyongyang".
The spokeswoman for China's ministry of foreign affairs, when asked in a regular
press-conference why the N Korean band of army girls left China so unexpectedly,
only answered "I don't know" and "We hope for a thoroughgoing cultural exchange."

Mastermind of Paris Attacks Under Arrest

Yesterday evening, Al-Jazeera, Arabic TV, reported that Salah Abdus-Salam, the suspected mastermind of the 2015 Paris attacks, could be arrested in the Belgian capital of Brussels. He was the only one to escape after the bloodshed his terrorist group had triggered off in the French capital. Even though some shooting accompanied the arrest of Abdus-Salam by Belgian police, he is reported to be in good health. French president Hollande is now urging the Belgian authorities to extradite Abdus-Salam to France.

US Court vs Iran - Joke of the Week

وثائق سرية تكشف التحالف بين بن لادن ومغنية وإيران

Secret documentation unveils alliance between Bin Laden,
[Hezbollah head of security] Mughniyeh and Iran.

حيثيات حكم محكمة نيويورك الفيدرالية بإدانة إيران و"حزب الله" في هجمات 9/11

The reasons of the rule by a federal court in New York
that condemned Iran and Hezbollah for the 9/11 attacks.

[Source: Al-Arabiya العربية on March 17, 2016]

TEHRAN. — Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman has slammed as “unjust”, “ridiculous” and “absurd” a US court ruling against the Islamic Republic over the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.

Yesterday [i.e. March 14], Hossein Jaberi Ansari described the US court order as “the latest product of the US Judicial system in the race for blindly following Zionist Iranophobic scenarios”.

“The ruling is ludicrous and absurd to the point that it makes a mockery of the principle of justice while further tarnishes the US judiciary’s reputation,” he said.

Last Wednesday [i.e. March 9], Iran was ordered by a US judge to pay more than $10,5 billion in damages to families of people killed on 9/11 and to a group of insurers.

US district judge George Daniels issued the judgment in New York, claiming Iran has failed to defend itself against allegations of involvement in the attacks.

The court ruling is based on the 9/11 Commission Report which stated that some attackers moved through Iran and did not have their passports stamped.

The verdict comes as none of the 19 hijackers on September 11 were Iranian citizens. Fifteen were from Saudi Arabia, while two from the United Arab Emirates and one each from Egypt and Lebanon.

Saudi Arabia was legally cleared from paying damages to the families of 9/11 victims last year, after Judge Daniels dismissed accounts that the Persian Gulf monarchy provided material support to the terrorists and ruled that Riyadh had sovereign immunity.

Obama Visiting Cuba

In the wake of U.S. President Obama's visit to Habana, Cuba's journal "Granma", the official voice of Cuba's Communist Party, published an editorial that drafted the official Cuban position for further talks with the United States. A news evaluation of that editorial, originally published by a Panama daily, has now been quoted in yesterday's edition of Here my translation of the complete article:

Destaca prensa panameña posición cubana ante visita de Obama.

Panama media highlighting Cuba's position before Obama's visit.

Panamá, 13 de mar (PL). Bajo el título "Granma extiende la mano ante la visita de (Barack) Obama, pero cierra filas", el matutino panameño La Prensa reseña hoy un editorial del periódico cubano sobre la próxima visita del presidente estadounidense a Cuba. "El diario oficial respalda el acercamiento a Estados Unidos, pero le exige a Obama que la política de cambio de régimen sea definitivamente sepultada", señaló sobre la postura definida por el diario del Partido Comunista de Cuba (PCC).

Panamá, March 13:
Under its title "Granma reaches out its hand in advance of Obama's visit but closes its ranks" the Panama morning journal La Prensa is evaluating today an editorial of Cuba's daily ["Granma"] and which is regarding the forthcoming visit of the U.S President to Cuba. "The official [Cuban] daily supports an approach towards the United States, however, demands from Obama to definitely bury the policy of change of regime, such hinting at the definite position taken by the daily of Cuba's Communist Party (PCC).

Reflejó un párrafo del editorial en el cual el rotativo cubano señala que "debe reconocerse la posición reiterada [del presidente de Estados Unidos] de que el bloqueo tiene que ser eliminado", pero advierte que "debe abandonarse la pretensión de fabricar una oposición política interna sufragada con dinero de los contribuyentes estadounidenses".

A paragraph in its editorial is reflecting how the Cuban printing media signals that "one has to appreciate the position [of the U.S. president] repeatedly saying the blockade should be eliminated", while admonishing that "it needs to give up the pretension of creating an internal political opposition and which is financed with money from U.S. tax payers."

La reseña destaca la parte del artículo en la que se recuerda el bloqueo económico, comercial y financiero a Cuba y las prerrogativas ejecutivas del Presidente estadounidense para modificar tanto como sea posible su aplicación, sin necesidad de una acción legislativa.

The evaluation is highlighting a part of the [Cuban] article which is reminding the economical, commercial and financial blockade of Cuba and the administrative prerogatives of a U.S. president to modify his venture as far as possible without any need for legislative activity.

El tema de la próxima visita oficial de Obama a La Habana, anunciada entre el 20 y 22 del presente mes, se refleja constantemente en medios panameños, algunos de los cuales invitan a expertos para analizar el contexto del hecho, sus proyecciones en el desarrollo de la isla y la repercusión para la región.

The subject of Obama's forthcoming official visit to Habana, and which has been announced [to take place] between the 20th and 22th this month, found its constant repercussions in Panama media, some of them inviting specialists for an analysis of [the subject and its consequences] in the development of the island, as well as, the regional repercussions.

Libya - Deeply Divided

Libya’s future is threatened by ‘terrifying’ ISIL, UN chief Ban Ki-moon says. The UN Secretary General has warned that the future of Libya, and the stability of the whole Sahel region, is at stake as it faces the “terrifying threat” of the ISIL group. But he warned international powers not to “stoke the fires of conflict” in the country.

Chaos has engulfed Libya since the 2011 Nato-backed ouster of dictator Muammar Gaddafi and rival administrations are being urged to sign up to a UN-brokered national unity government to help restore stability.

The internationally recognised and rather weak government is based in the far east of the North African country while an opposing government was installed in Tripoli, the former capital of Libya.

The ISIL group and other extremist organisations have exploited the power vacuum, making gains along the oil-rich coastal regions and triggering concern among Western nations over terrorists controlling territory just 300 kilometres from Europe.

“There are alarming reports of widespread human rights violations, including serious abuses that may amount to war crimes,” Ban said in his comments Friday. “All those with influence must use it to calm the situation and stop the fighting. It is utterly irresponsible for any outside player to stoke the fires,” he added.

Ban said that his special representative Martin Kobler “is facilitating talks on a national unity government” as “we face the terrifying scourge of ISIL expanding in Libya and beyond its borders.” Delays would only worsen the dire humanitarian needs, he warned, adding that “Libya’s future is at stake” and “the reverberations echo far”. Success in stabilising Libya would also benefit the whole Sahel region and “our world” in general, he added.

On Sunday March 6, 2016, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made clear she stood behind U.S. action in Libya, saying if the country hadn’t participated in the bombing campaign that led to the ouster of Moammar Gadhafi, Libya would now look like Syria.

The Democratic presidential contender acknowledged on CBS’s “Face the Nation” the situation in Libya is not optimal but noted the 1,500 deaths in Libya fighting last year were far fewer than the 150,000 in Syria.

[Source: International Business Times on March 6, 2016]

The United States is basing plans for military intervention in Libya on faulty intelligence, Western officials and country experts have told the Sunday Telegraph.

American intelligence agencies assess that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has doubled in size in Libya, with between 5,000 and 6,500 fighters in the country. Privately, however, some US officials say they believe these estimates to be overblown. Independent experts have come to the same conclusion. ..... all said they believed the real figure to be only 20 to 40 per cent of the US estimate.
