Last grew significantly above all the pressure of the neighbors in the Gulf: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the Emirates disturbs greatly, that Qatar does not participate in the General hunt on the Muslim Brotherhood. Recently the Saudi Foreign Minister threatened the neighbouring country with a naval blockade and to close all land-based connections. For the army, a military occupation of Qatar would indeed be a matter of days. The young Emir comes from the religious wing of the family, he is close to the Muslim Brotherhood and was long Deputy Commander of the armed forces. Like many other Arab dictators, he was educated at the prestigious British Military Academy Sandhurst. One and a half years ago, he took over command as head of State in difficult times.

Ten questions and answers about an independent Scotland.

Posted by admin under Uncategorized (Comments Off)

The nationalists say no, but the reality is not so clear. The population in Scotland is growing less than in the rest of the United Kingdom. The Scots have fewer children and the population ages. Scotland needs to working people. Therefore, nationalists promise an opening towards immigration policy if he wins the independence: reduce the British demand for an annual salary of 20. 300 pounds for the residence and they will allow foreign students to stay a few years after graduating. United Kingdom does not store, nor much less, to ease their immigration policies. We should not forget that the xenophobic UKIP was the most voted party in the European country passes. Of the thirty countries created in recent years in Europe and Asia, only Kosovo and Turkmenistan do not have one. So Scotland, in all likelihood, would have its own stock market. The index, according to a study by Paul Marsh and Scott Evans, London Business School and Walbrook Economics, quoted by The Economist, would be highly concentrated, with three large companies (SSE, Standard Life and Royal Bank of Scotland) representing 40% of its value. And very financial: banks and insurance companies would add 28% and investment funds, another 26%. If all Scottish companies operating in the City decided to move its listing to Scotland, it would be most important market 28 th in the world. But it is unlikely. European legislation could force companies, such as Royal Bank of Scotland, to move its headquarters to the country where its activity: in your case, United Kingdom remaining. The Scottish banks have already advanced they moving their headquarters to the South of a border in the event of separation. .

We’ll hit the shrines of Isis in Syria: Chuck Hagel, head of the Pentagon, confirmed as the next phase of the American offensive against the militant Islamic State is imminent. It says in a hearing in the Senate. But you understand the escalation of the last hour, with the first U.s. raid on the outskirts of Baghdad, aimed at supporting Iraqi troops committed to regain vast areas occupied in recent months by jihadist fighters. But the real news comes from the words of the American Chief of staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who first opens to a possible intervention by ground troops. Us ready to fight alongside Iraqi soldiers and Kurds–and if for weeks-from Barack Obama down-the smash was one of no boots on the ground, now imagine American soldiers engaged in combat missions alongside Iraqi and Kurdish troops no longer looks like such a thing impossible. If it will be necessary to recommending to the President, said Dempsey, referring to complex operations that the only troops to Baghdad or the Kurdish regional government would not be able to carry on. America again involved in a real war-the White House is holding back, with spokesman Josh Earnest about hypothetical scenarios. But what the President has consistently ruled out categorically, could now become reality: America is again involved in a real war, sending more than 1. 600 US soldiers already in Iraq. ‘ Military ‘ Advisors, how they are defined, but in fact special forces men from Delta Force, the Green Berets through the Navy Seals. Faced with the realization that the air raids are not sufficient to defeat the men of Caliph al Baghdadi, might well fall the last taboo. Moreover, despite the hammering of American fighters, the jihadist threat remains undiminished. And can only increase concerns the appeal at Isis by two groups linked to al Qaida. Already taken to score over 160 bombings in Iraq-an appeal to create a ‘ terror ‘ coalition to unite their efforts and fight with the West especially when the fight will move into Syria. Faced with this grim scenario, diplomatic efforts are continuing to give shape to a large international coalition led by the United States and consisting of a dozen Arab countries. As the Obama administration presses the foot on the accelerator and intensifies a campaign that has already led to more than 160 bombings in Iraq. An action that is already giving the first fruits in terms of weakening of Isis, its capabilities and tactics of logistics, as explained by Hagel. Although it is just beginning. Obama will take stock of the situation Wednesday and make a first assessment of operations undertaken so far will be the US President’s visit Wednesday, the Us Central Command (Centcom) in Florida. An appointment to which Barack Obama arrives after being upgraded by General John Allen, White House Special Envoy in charge of guiding the Alliance anti-Isis. In the next few hours for Washington will be very important to understand who really, especially among the Arab countries, is willing to assist the United States in terms of air raids. While recording in Syria Damascus jet shot down by militants of Isis, and that crashed on a house in Raqqah governorate, elected city capital of ‘ Caliphate ‘ led by al Baghdadi. That Assad bombard the jihadists is nothing new, unwitting ally of Washington. Although the head of the Pentagon before the Senate confirmed: No cooperation with Damascus. Al Qaida calls on jihadists to unity against the Alliance anti-Isis-Meanwhile, in response to u.s. actions, the Maghrebian branches (Aqim) and Yemen (Aqpa) of al-Qaida have launched an appeal to the State’s Islamic jihadis to join against the Coalition-Isis. In a statement the two groups exhort their brethren in Iraq and Mujahedeen in the Levant to unite against America’s campaign and his evil coalition. The appeal refers to the divergence between the Isis, who has distanced himself with al Qaida and declared a Caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria, and the front of the Antakya, Syrian al-Qaida branch, remained faithful to the terrorist organization’s leader, Ayman Al-Zawahri. Do your rejection of disbelief a unit factor. The appeal is addressed also to the Syrian opposition moderate who seeks to overthrow the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and is supported by the Usa and their Arab allies. AQIM and also invite Aqpa, in their press release all those who have taken up arms against the tyrant Bashar and his militia not to be fooled by America and not to become their pawns. The two branches of al Qaida invite too Sunni tribes of Iraq and Syria not to forget the crimes of the United States and which do not form part of the Coalition-Isis. .
