Mercenarios sirios admiten responsabilidad de ataque con armas químicas

Mercenarios sirios de Goutha, en los suburbios de Damasco (capital siria), admitieron su responsabilidad en el ataque perpetrado con armas químicas el pasado 21 de agosto, suceso en el que perdieron la vida al menos mil 300 personas.

En una declaración a la corresponsal de la agencia  Associated Press (AP), Dale Gavlak, los mercenarios señalaron que el "accidente" se produjo por el mal manejo de las armas químicas que les proporciona Arabia Saudita.

Según explicó la periodista, médicos y residentes de Goutha creen que los mercenarios recibieron las armas químicas del jefe de la Inteligencia saudí, el príncipe Bandar bin Sultan, y que fueron ellos "los responsables de llevar a cabo el ataque con gas".

Carla del Ponte: Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack Carried Out by Rebels. -May 2013 (VIDEO YT 27/8/13)

As the Syrian revolt continues to tear the country apart, the international community has been eager to condemn Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, even as it became clear that the rebels do not, in fact, represent a popular uprising against the oppression of the Assad regime. According to UN diplomat Carla del Ponte, however, it appears that the recent chemical weapons attack was carried out by the Syrian rebels and not the regime, as it had been widely assumed. Speaking to a Swiss television channel, del Ponte said that there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels had carried out the attack. She also said UN investigators had seen no evidence of the Syrian army using chemical weapons, but that further investigation was needed (May 2013***).

Japan unveils largest warship since World War II. The 810-ft long ship is able to carry up to 14 helicopters. (VIDEO YT)

YOKOHAMA - Japan today (Aug 6) unveiled its biggest warship since World War II, a huge flat-top destroyer that has raised eyebrows in China and elsewhere because it bears a strong resemblance to a conventional aircraft carrier.
The ship, which has a flight deck that is nearly 250 metres long, is designed to carry up to 14 helicopters. Japanese officials say it will be used in national defence - particularly in anti-submarine warfare and border-area surveillance missions - and to bolster the nation’s ability to transport personnel and supplies in response to large-scale natural disasters, like the devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

Minorities in Turkey tagged by ‘race codes,’ official document reveals

An official document penned by the Istanbul Provincial Education Directorate has surfaced, revealing that Turkey’s population administration system has been recording citizens who have Armenian, Jewish or Anatolian Greek (Rum) origins with secret “race codes.”

The Armenian-Turkish weekly newspaper Agos published as its headline story on Aug. 1 a report on an official document that openly states “citizens with Armenian origin are coded with ‘2.’” 

The implementation is reported to have been in place since 1923, the foundation year of the Turkish Republic.
