Posted by: armyguy || 09/08/2010 13:37 Comments || Top||

#2  This just seems to be a common thread regarding British troops. What bits I've picked up from Michael Yon is that the British government doesn't support their troops. I mean they cut their defense spending again this year to support their extended dole system. They don't even support them logistically it appears. I the Chinook, or at least I thin it was one, in the background and I wondered if it was US chopper. The Brits don't have enough helos for their troops and often rely on US support.
Posted by: miscellaneous || 09/08/2010 13:54 Comments || Top||

#3  As a side note, I had read, I think on Instapundit, that the Brits even allow Sharia to be used instead of their own law system in some areas of the UK. Don't know how accurate that is, but if true, just goes to show how screwed up they really are and their lack of commitment to freedom.
Posted by: miscellaneous || 09/08/2010 13:58 Comments || Top||

#4  The British do have Chinook helicopters of varying degrees of age; there have been controversies around the latest batch because they thought they could save money making their own customized digital flight control system, but it unexpectedly wound up costing more. Or something like that.

81 Polling Centres Closed in Eastern Nangarhar Province
[Tolo News] Officials in the Independent Election Commission (IEC) remarked on Tuesday that 81 other polling centres are to remain closed in eastern Nangarhar province

"Some 81 of 458 centres which were to be opened in Nangarhar, will remain closed during the elections. The security organisations think it would be impossible to open these centres," said head of the IEC, Mohammad Fazel Manawi.

Afghan security organisations have declared "more than 61 other centres under threat and this could be discussed somehow, but 81 centres are impossible to be opened", he said.

Sixty other polling centres in Nangarhar are also likely to be closed, said head of the IEC.

In total, 119 polling centres have been closed all over the country.

With 114 centres to remain closed in it during the parliamentary elections, Nangarhar will be the province with the largest number of closed centres in the country.

Meanwhile, a number of supporters of a delisted parliamentary elections candidate demonstrated on Tuesday before the Electoral Complaints Commission's office.

The demonstrators called the delisting of this candidate an illegal act, but the Electoral Complaints Commission said he was removed from the list for not resigning from his governmental post ahead of the set deadline.

UAE freezes four Iranian bank accounts: report
[Al Arabiya] The United Arab Emirates' central bank has frozen four Iranian bank accounts cited in a United Nations Security Council blacklist after uncovering their presence in the UAE banking system, a newspaper said on Tuesday.

A U.N. resolution of June 9 names 40 entities and one individual on a blacklist of firms whose assets worldwide are to be frozen for assisting Iran's nuclear or missile programs.

"We asked the 51 banks operating in the country to step up scrutiny on the accounts and the related names and to search for names on the Security Council list, and we found four bank accounts only," the al-Ittihad daily quoted an unnamed source as saying.

The newspaper's source said the amount of money involved was not significant and did not name the banks concerned. A central bank official was not available for comment.

The seven-member UAE federation, a U.S. ally with a large expatriate Iranian population mainly in Dubai, has been under pressure to monitor commercial relations with Iran.

On Monday, the central bank directed banks to provide more frequent details of remittances to Iran. This was part of a series of studies on the economic impact of the U.N. sanctions, a circular sent to banks said.

The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) froze accounts of Perisa International in August after the bank was added to the EU's list of sanctions.

The UAE has tried to walk a fine line to avoid both alienating its key trade partner and damaging relations with Washington. But it has said it would abide by all U.N. Security resolutions against the Islamic republic.

Last year, Dubai's re-exports to Iran -- goods originally coming from Europe, Asia or elsewhere and then sold on to Iran -- rose 4.8 percent to 21.3 billion dirhams ($5.8 billion).

Caribbean-Latin America
Nuevo Leon: 2 cops wounded in grenade attack
Google Translate. For a map, click here.

Note: The attack appears to be 40mm grenades from a grenade launcher.

Two Monterrey, Nuevo Leon police were wounded in a grenade attack early Tuesday morning, according to Mexican news accounts.

A patrol of the Nuevo Leon Seguridad Pública del Estado (SPE) had stopped at a convenience store buy a snack when armed suspects aboard a sedan launched two grenades at the officers from atop nearby bridge.

The attack took place at a store near the intersection of Avenida Bernardo Reyes and Calle Fidel Velazquez in the Ferrocarrilera district.

Carlos Rocha and Claudia Velazquez were treated by paramedics at the scene and then transported to a hospital. They are expected to survive the attack.

Reports say the attackers also fired on the officers with a pistol before fleeing the scene.

This is the third attack in three days using grenades in Nuevo Leon against Mexican law enforcement. None of the two previous attacks involved any wounded.

Air strikes kill 15 suspected rebels in Colombia
[Iran Press] The Colombian Air Force has killed at least 15 suspected leftist rebels during an Air Force bombing raid near the country's eastern border, a report says.

Colombia's Air Force pounded hideouts of the leftist National Liberation Army (ELN), the country's second-largest rebel group, in eastern Arauca Department, AFP reported on Saturday.

One of the injured rebels is reportedly being treated at a hospital.
Pray for sepsis ...
The raid came just two days after suspected rebels killed 14 police officers and wounded seven more in the country's south. The police officers lost their lives when their vehicle was blown up by a mine on a road in southern Caqueta Department late Wednesday.

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the oldest and strongest rebel group in the country, is said to be responsible for the mine blast.

Colombia's newly elected President Juan Manuel Santos has announced rewards for information leading to the capture of the responsible rebels. The government has also ruled out peace talks with FARC rebels. According to Colombian Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera, the new administration will not spare any efforts to defeat rebels operating on Colombian soil.

More Mexican Mayhem
Five Die in Northern Mexico

Five people lost their lives in northern Mexico in violence related to drugs or gangs, including two Juarez police shot to death in a prison escape.
For a map, click here.
  • Two Juarez police were shot to death and one other was wounded in a jail break Tuesday morning, according to Mexican press accounts. Morales Arturo Batres and Jose Manuel Alvarez Flores were killed when armed suspects attacked a convoy transporting a prisoner from the Juarez CERESO to receive medical treatment. The operation took place near the intersection of calles Lopez Mateos and La Raza at about 1000 hrs. Juan Pablo Castillo Lopez is identified as the inmate who escaped.

  • A man in his 20s was shot to death in Juarez Monday, say Mexican press accounts. Jesus Medina Medina, 23, died while in his Hyundai Elantra near the intersection of calles Obaldia and Zaragoza in the Las Golondrinas II district, where armed suspects attacked. Medina Medina attempted to escape the attack, but instead crashed his vehicle into a residence.

  • An unidentified man was shot to death in Juarez Tuesday afternoon, say Mexican news reports. The attack took place near the intersection of calles Cromo and Gardenias in the Zacatecas district where the victim had just exited a vehicle, and was shot by one or more of the passengers.

  • An unidentified man was found shot to death in Torreon, Coahuila Saturday, say Mexican press accounts. The discovery was made near the intersection of Bulevar Laguna and Calle Primera where the victim was found with three gunshot wounds in his back. Three 9mm spent cartridge casings were found nearby.

#1  Just so there is no left-over confusion from yesterday, I want to say mega garcias (that's "many thanks" in Espaniel for you illingual slobs) to Badanov for scraping this stuff together and to the people writing about it in Mexico - which I am fairly convinced is an actual country.

My personal suspicion as to why we are not hearing about this in our own press is that to mention a failing narco-state on our southern border would only hi-light the concerns of the citizens of Arizona who, according to The Narrative, are all racist sumbitches. Once again, it is Rantburg to the rescue with news we can use.

US drone strikes kill 10 militants in North Waziristan
[Dawn] Two US missile strikes in Pakistain's North Wazoo tribal district on the Afghan border killed at least 10 Boskonians on Wednesday, DawnNews reported.

The first attack took place in Dandey Darpakhel village, five kilometres northwest of Miramshah, the main town in North Wazoo tribal district.

At least six Boskonians were killed in the US dronezap which targeted the compound of a local Islamic myrmidon, reports said.

A security official in the region confirmed the strike and casualties.

In the second attack, a US drone fired two missiles which struck a vehicle, killing four Boskonians in Amboor Shaga village of Dattakhel town in North Wazoo tribal area, 40 kilometres west of Miramshah.

US forces have been waging a drone war against Taliban and al-Qaeda-linked commanders in Pakistain's northwestern tribal belt, where Boskonians have carved out havens in mountains outside direct government control.

The US military does not as a rule confirm dronezaps, but its armed forces and the Central Intelligence Agency operating in Afghanistan are the only forces that deploy death droids in the region.

More than 1,040 people have been killed in 122 drone strikes in Pakistain since August 2008, including a number of senior Islamic myrmidons. However,
The infamous However...
the attacks fuel anti-American sentiment in the country.

Washington has branded the rugged tribal area on the Afghan border -- part of which has been hit by Pakistain's catastrophic flooding -- a global headquarters of al-Qaeda.

Officials in Washington say the drone strikes are a vital tool needed to protect the 150,000 foreign troops in Afghanistan, and have killed a number of high-value targets including Pak Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud.

Al-Qaeda announced in June that its number three leader and Osama bin Laden's one-time treasurer Mustafa Abu al-Yazid had been killed in what security officials said appeared to be a drone strike in North Wazoo.

Six Tickets to Paradise Air Mailed Along with 432 Virgin Vouchers
A suspected US drone attack in Pakistan’s tribal region on Wednesday killed at least six people. The target of the strike was the Haqqani network, a Pakistani militant group blamed for attacks on NATO forces in Afghanistan, the Associated Press reports.

The strike, which targeted at least one house in North Waziristan, was the sixth drone attack in the area this week. The missile hit a house in the village of Dande Darpa Khel just outside North Waziristan’s main town of Miran Shah, according to the AP.

The house was owned by Maulvi Azizullah, a member of the Haqqani network, a militant group based in North Waziristan that U.S. military officials have called the most dangerous threat to NATO troops in Afghanistan.

Bandido killed in encounter with police
[Pak Daily Times] A bandit was gunned down in an encounter with the police at Regal Chowk on Tuesday. Preedy SSP Javed Akber Riaz said two unidentified men carrying weapons entered a money-changer's office near the Paradise Hotel and started looting valuables and cash from the customers and employees. However, when a hue and cry was raised, the accused men tried to flee from the scene, the SSP added. When the bandits reached near Regal Chowk, the deployed Preedy police mobile intercepted them, the officer said. The culprits opened fire on the mobile, and when the police countered their attack, one of the bandits was killed, he added. Police claimed to have recovered a hand grenade and a TT pistol from the dead bandit who seemed to be a Pakhtun national and around 20 years old. The SSP said the bandits might be militants, as bandits do not use hand grenades during robberies.

Another girls' school destroyed in Kalam
O brave, brave Lions of Islam, attacking an unoccupied building for girls!
[Pak Daily Times] Security forces on Tuesday launched a search operation after myrmidons blew up a second girls' school in Kalam late on Monday. Officials blamed suspected faceless myrmidons for torching of the school in Peshmaal. Another school had been destroyed last weekend. The faceless myrmidons had destroyed more than 402 schools in the district before they were expelled in a military operation last year. Analysts see two possible reasons behind renewed anti-school violence: first, that the faceless myrmidons are expressing their anger at the presence of Americans, who are doing relief work, in Kalam. Second, it may be an attempt by the flood-battered locals to draw the world's attention to their plight.

ANP chief's cousin abducted from Peshawar
[Pak Daily Times] Vice chancellor (VC) of the Islamia College University Dr Ajmal Khan, and the cousin of Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali Khan was kidnapped by unidentified gunnies on Tuesday, police and officials said.

Campus Peace Corps (CPC) Superintendent of Police (SP) Ijaz Ahmed told Daily Times that Khan was kidnapped from the Professors' Colony area of the university campus at around 9am.

He added that the VC, accompanied by his driver, was on his way to his office, when six gunnies stopped his vehicle and kidnapped him at gunpoint. The SP said that the gunnies took Khan towards Nasir Bagh.

He said that the police was searching for the kidnappers, and so far the kidnappers had not contacted Khan's family.

Ahmed said that Islamic fascisti were behind the VC's kidnapping and he probably had been shifted to Khyber Agency, which is close to the Nasir Bagh area. Khan is the second VC to be kidnapped during the ongoing militancy.

He had been one of the senior most academicians of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, formerly NWFP, aka Terrorism Central.

Car bomb attack kills 20 in Kohat
[Pak Daily Times] At least 20 people, mostly women and children, were killed, while more than 94 others were injured in a car bomb attack near the Kohat Police Lines on Tuesday.

The car bomb ripped through a compound containing police officers' homes, a training facility and a commercial area, when people were busy in iftaari. The powerful blast destroyed two dozen houses and shops and rescuers were busy in pulling out bodies and the injured from the rubble.

"The dead were the wives and children of police officers," said Khalid Omarzai, the city's top government official, adding that another 94 people were also maimed.

Policeman Muhammad Arif said there was a huge kaboom in the residential area of the compound soon after iftaar. Power to the area was cut, forcing emergency workers to search for victims in the dark.

"This city is a war zone. We would always expect such attacks," said Omarzai.

President Asif Ali (Ten Percent) Zardari and Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani have strongly condemned the attack and stressed that hard boyz would never be allowed to succeed in their nefarious designs.

"Such reprehensible acts only strengthen the resolve of the government and the people of Pakistain, who are determined to eradicate this menace," the president said.

The president expressed his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and prayed for the early recovery of the injured.

"While the nation is passing through difficult times due to floods, these cowards are mercilessly killing innocent Mohammedans when they are breaking their fasts during the holy month of Ramazan in their homes," the prime minister said.

Kohat has been the scene of several terrorist attacks this year. In April, two burqa-clad boomers attacked people lined up to register for food and other relief supplies in the district, killing 41 persons and wounding dozens more.

Terrorists kill five in southern Thailand
Bombings and shootings by terrorists suspected Islamic militants have left five dead and 13 wounded across southern Thailand.

A married couple, both teachers, were killed by gunmen on their way to work. The shootings took place in Narathiwat province, where suspected ethnic Malay rebels burned government offices, bus shelters, shops and phone booths on Sunday in simultaneous attacks in seven districts.

In separate attacks in Pattani province, a villager was gunned down outside his house late Monday while a janitor was shot dead on route to his job as a school guard. Another shooting killed a woman as she walked to her mosque in Yala province on Monday.

On the same day in Yala, two bombs injured six people including a soldier, while a roadside bomb in the same province injured three soldiers on patrol.

The government has granted a five-year $US1.9 billion economic stimulus budget in an effort to reduce economic disparity and reduce terrorist recruitment.
That kind of dough can buy a lot of origami cranes.
