atunci că o strategie de apărare civilă nu înseamnă neapărat pregătiri
de război, dacă ar fi făcută pe vremuri de pace. Dar, în contextul
anului 2016, când sunt atâtea atacuri teroriste în Europa (inclusiv pe
teritoriul Germaniei), când sunt atâtea tensiuni cu Rusia, când sunt
probleme conflictuale în Orientul Apropiat şi Mijlociu (Siria, Iraq),
când Turcia se îndreaptă spre islamizare şi dictatură… o asemenea
strategie de apărare civilă nu poate decât să te pună pe gânduri.
Ei bine, acum, conform unor informaţii publicate pe site-ul infowars.com,
guvernul ceh şi-ar fi îndemnat cetăţenii “să se pregătească pentru ce-i
mai rău”. Interesant e faptul că Germania şi Cehia sunt ţări vecine.
Dar, mass-media cehă (vedeţi articolul de pe site-ul zahranicni.ihned.cz),
spune că rezervele alimentare ale Cehiei sunt limitate şi ţara ar fi
incapabilă să facă faţă cererii, în caz de criză naţională. Însă,
autorităţile de la Praga recomandă cetăţenilor săi să-şi facă un stoc de
Conform lui Israeli Live News,
staţiile de televiziune şi de radio din Cehia îi avertizează pe
cetăţeni “să se pregătească pentru ce-i mai rău”, ceea ce înseamnă că ar
putea fi vorba de un atac terorist sau un atac nuclear. Proprietarul
canalului de YouTube Israeli Live News este Steven Ben-DeNoon, care
locuieşte în prezent în Republica Cehă.
greu de verificat cât de corectă este această informaţie (poate ne
ajută vreun român din Cehia), dar la începutul lunii august 2016,
preşedintele ceh Milos Zeman a cerut schimbarea legii, pentru ca fiecare
cetăţean să poată deţină arme, pentru a se apăra împotriva jihadiştilor
islamişti (vedeţi ştirea de pe radio.cz de pe 1 august 2016).
ştirea cu avertismentul dat de guvernul ceh propriilor cetăţeni este
una reală (şi nu falsă), atunci ar trebui cu adevărat să ne îngrijoreze…

Iran vessels make 'high speed intercept' of U.S. ship: U.S. official
By Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) vessels "harassed" a U.S. warship on Tuesday near the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. defense official said, amid Washington's concerns about Iran's posture in the Gulf and in the Syrian civil war. The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that two of the Iranian vessels came within 300 yards of the USS Nitze in an incident that was "unsafe and unprofessional." The vessels harassed the destroyer by "conducting a high speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze, despite repeated warnings," the official said.
Burkini ban: US warns tourists to obey French law
Dozens of French resorts have banned beachwear that "conspicuously" shows a person's religion, an order targeting the "burkini" -- a full-body swimsuit worn by some Muslim women. In response to a reporter's question as to whether the United States would update its travel advice to warn Muslim Americans, a US official advised them to obey the rules.
12, including 7 students, killed in attack on American University in Kabul
KABUL (Reuters) - Twelve people, including seven students, were killed in an attack on the American University in Kabul that sent hundreds of students fleeing in panic, police said early on Thursday, before the assault ended when two gunmen were shot dead. The attack began at around 6:30 p.m. local time (1400 GMT) on Wednesday with a large explosion that officials said was a car bomb followed by gunfire, as suspected militants battled into the complex where foreign staff and pupils were working. Elite Afghan forces surrounded the walled compound and eventually worked their way inside, according to a senior interior ministry official. Kabul police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi said seven students, three policemen and two security guards were killed during the attack, the second incident involving the university this month. Sporadic gunfire could be heard through the night and, before dawn, police said the operation had concluded. “The fight is over and at least two attackers are killed,” a police official at the scene told Reuters. “Right now a clearance operation is ongoing by a criminal technique team.” The Afghan Public Health Ministry said no foreigners were reported among the wounded. Fraidoon Obaidi, chief of the Kabul police Criminal Investigation Department, told Reuters that police had evacuated between 700 and 750 students from the university, which is popular with Afghanistan’s elite.

Russia Feels the Sting of Olympic, Iranian Rebuffs « US Opinion and Commentary
August has not been the best of months for Russian President Vladimir Putin. His country largely excluded from the Rio Olympics — and completely barred from the Paralympics — because of a doping scandal, Putin is facing complicated challenges at home and abroad. Continued U.S. and European economic sanctions over Russia’s military intervention in the Ukraine, plus a recovering but still relatively low oil price, have diminished Putin’s ability to generate prosperity. According to experts, while a major crisis is unlikely, the Russian economy will at best limp along unless Putin pulls back his forces from eastern Ukraine and is able to borrow again in Western markets. Instead of abiding by a 2015
Russia investing in new ships, naval bases 'to project its power'
Since October 2015 the Russian Navy has been conducting combat operations against the Islamic State militants in Syria. Today the fight against terrorism is becoming one of the navy's priorities and unprecedented funds are being invested in the construction of new ships, bases and infrastructure. But the story is not just about Syria. Moscow has been aware for some time of the need to modernize its aging fleet, which was allowed to fall into stagnation in the two decades following the disintegration of the Soviet Union. In 2011-12, Russia invested 5 trillion rubles ($78 billion) in the construction of new ships and submarines for the navy. Work is being carried out on a series of six frigates
The creation of a joint EU army is inevitable, Czech Prime Minister Sobotka told a gathering of Czech diplomats in Prague, citing terrorism, the migrant influx, and a “new aggressive Russia” as the main reasons a NATO-like military structure is needed. The migrant issue is the key reason for introducing an EU army, according to comments PM Bohuslav Sobotka made on Monday during an annual address at Czech Foreign Ministry headquarters.
“In the face of uncontrolled migration, even states in the center of Europe have realized that internal borders must be controlled… aside from better coordinated foreign and security policy, I also believe that in the long term, we will be unable to do without a joint European army,” he said, as cited by Radio Praha.
