"Isi tiga surat terekspos agen intelijen Mossad menunjukkan ketakutan agen intel Zionis tersebut menghadapi operasi militer Hizbullah dan intervensi militer Israel di Yaman”, jelas koordinator komite internasional HAM di Timur Tengah.
Haitham Abu Said, Koordinator komite internasional HAM di Timteng, mengabarkan menepinya Kapal Induk AS di Timteng dan surat menyurat mrk dgn agen intelijen Mossad dan markas Yahudi. Bahkan ia mengungkap isi surat tsb.
Salah satu surat tsb berisi perintah pengiriman tentara Yahudi di salah satu Negara Arab ke Yaman. Dan menegaskan bhw langkah ini harus dijalankan dan diagendakan pusat operasi militer kedua belah pihak.
Surat kedua membuktikan ketakutan militer Zionis atas rudal Mukawamah Hizbullah dan menyebutkan bhw Israel tdk tahu jumlah peluncur serta jenis rudal Mukawamah.
Surat ketiga menyatakan bhw segala jenis operasi Israel di tanah Libanon melawan Hizbullah adalah sebuah dilema. Militer Israel tdk akan mampu hadir di dua medan perang. Surat ketiga tersebut menegaskan operasi khusus hrs dijalankan atas kerjasama dengan bagian operasi khusus militer Libanon.
Menurut Abu Said, cara surat menyurat seperti ini baru digunakan oleh militer Zionis saat ini. Surat tersebut membuktikan bhw Israel memiliki agenda operasi atas Hizbullah. Tetapi Mossad khawatir atas operasi tersebut. Mossad takut dampak buruk perang dengan Hizbullah. “Militer Beirut sdh siap siaga di perbatasan. Ini adalah reaksi militer Beirut atas gerak-gerik militer Tel Aviv di perbatasan”, jelas sumber di Libanon.
Yisrael Katz, Menteri Keamanan Nasional Israel, menyatakan, “Jika Israel terancam oleh terowongan2 Hizbullah, indikasi kuat militer akan masuk perbatasan Beirut. Perang tdk akan bisa dihindari jika militer melangkah lebih jauh”. Israel telah mengumumkan situasi darurat. Mrk sdh menjalankan operasi ‘Perisai Utara’ sejak selasa pagi.
Perisai Utara dioperasikan demi menjauhkan diri dari ancaman terowongan Hizbullah. “Terowongan tersebut telah tembus wilayah pertahanan Zionis,” klaim PM Benjamin Netanyahu.
The Crater, 1864, Virginia. The siege of Petersburg was one of the longest in the American Civil War. Both sides dug trenches in a year-long stalemate that was briefly interrupted when a mining engineer under Union general Ambrose Burnside suggested tunneling under rebel fortications and blowing them up. The blast killed hundreds of Confederate soldiers and left a massive crater in the rebel line, but Union troops, unsure about what to do next, tried to advance by climbing down into the crater but couldn't climb out again. The rebels lined up around the crater and fired down at the trapped soldiers in what contemporaries described as a turkey shoot. The attack was a failure, and nearly everyone in the crater was killed. General Grant called it the saddest thing he'd seen in the war. #civilwar#history#cartoon
During this week in 1832, President #AndrewJackson issues the Nullification Proclamation. It was an event that contributed to the tension between North and South before the #CivilWar. The Jackson-era nullification crisis came about due to the Tariff Act of 1828. Southerners believed that the tariffs protected Northern interests, to the detriment of the South. The matter became somewhat controversial and Congress modified the tariffs in 1832. #SouthCarolina was not satisfied. On November 24, 1832, the state determined that the tariffs were unconstitutional, and it passed an Ordinance of Nullification. The ordinance stated that tariffs would no longer be collected within South Carolina’s boundaries. Within a few weeks, Jackson issued his Nullification Proclamation. It asserted that states could not nullify federal laws; Jackson stated that he would use force, as needed, to implement federal law. He asked Congress to pass a law—a Force Act—to this effect. The nullification crisis came to an end with the Compromise Tariff Act of 1833, which steadily reduced tariffs over the course of nine years. The objectionable protective tariff was to be eliminated by 1842. However, Congress also passed the Force Act, as requested. South Carolina rescinded its nullification of the tariff laws, but it defiantly nullified the Force Act instead. For those following my Federalist Papers series on Facebook, all of these concerns echo the discussions in those papers! How can we create a national government strong enough to accomplish its intended purposes, but still leave *all other* power to the states? The subject was constantly discussed early in #AmericanHistory.

Forget Lisbon or Brasilia: with a population of more than six million, Luanda is the world’s most populous Portuguese-speaking capital city. (The population swelled during Angola’s 27-year civil war, when millions of refugees moved to the relative safety of the city.) English is not widely spoken, even in Luanda. Just a few basic words in Portuguese will take you far: Obrigado (thank you), bom dia (good morning), por favor (please), sim (yes), não (no), and bué (a lot). The expression fixe (“feesh”), meaning okay or cool, is also deeply useful.
Luanda is one of the most expensive cities in the world for expats. Angola’s civil war ended in 2002: it still lacks basic infrastructure and most goods are imported. (A pound of tomatoes can cost $16.) Being one of the world’s most corrupt countries doesn’t help, and its resource wealth (oil anddiamonds!) makes it a prime candidate for Dutch Disease. But it’s only super expensive if you live like an expat. Luanda’s few well-known hotels (Epic Sana, Hotel Presidente, and Hotel Trópico) cost around $500 per night. But thanks to recent hotel openings and under-the-radar bed and breakfasts, prices are becoming more competitive. The recently-opened Thompson House on the Ilha do Cabo (the closest thing Luanda has to a hostel vibe), Hotel Ilhamar (which also has a great restaurant) and Rouxino Boutique Hotel are decent hotels at decent prices—for Luanda.
