How North Korean Weapons Could Start a War (in the Middle East)

How North Korean Weapons Could Start a War (in the Middle East) On November 4, a ballistic missile exploded above King Khalid Airport near Riyadh after being intercepted by Saudi Patriot missiles. The attack, launched by Houthi rebels in Yemen, led the Saudi government to blame Iran for supporting the rebels, escalating tensions across the Middle East. Curiously, however, many of Yemen’s ballistic missiles came from North Korea—a design that North Korea, in turn, had acquired from Egypt.

Thousands of Zimbabweans demand Mugabe stands down at Harare protest

Thousands of Zimbabweans demand Mugabe stands down at Harare protest  Euphoric crowds of several thousand people have gathered in Zimbabwe's capital to demand the departure of President Robert Mugabe after nearly four decades in power. In a colorful gathering that even days ago would have drawn an immediate police crackdown, Zimbabweans giddy with joy raced through intersections, raising their arms in triumph. Young men shouted, laughed and embraced. Some had posters with an image of the military commander who swept in earlier this week and put Mugabe under house arrest, with the slogan: "Go, go, our general!!!" Marchers handed flags to soldiers, who accepted and waved. "It's like Christmas," said one marcher, Fred Mubay, who said Zimbabweans have been suffering for a long time. The 93-year-old Mugabe, the world's oldest head of state, is said to be asking for more time amid negotiations with regional leaders that seek his exit with a veneer of dignity. A man carries a poster calling for Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe to step down  Credit: PHILIMON BULAWAYO But he is virtually powerless and deserted by most of his allies, with others arrested, and the crowds in Harare on Saturday were making it clear the country was impatient to move on without him. Even as concerns remained about who next would be in charge and what freedoms might be available if the military lingered in power - or if Mugabe's longtime but recently fired deputy led a new government - people reveled in the rare chance to speak out. The party has started in Harare. Choppers overhead, 1000s here. More pouring in. #zimbabwepic.twitter.com/N3TqMUgxl0— Joe Parkinson (@JoeWSJ) November 18, 2017 The demonstrators, in the event approved by the military, hope a big turnout will speed up the official end of Mugabe's rule, which is widely blamed for the collapse of an economy that was once one of Africa's wealthiest. Veterans of the long liberation war against white minority rule, once close allies of Mugabe, took part, along with opposition activists who have faced police crackdowns by the Mugabe government. At an intersection, a vendor held up a newspaper with the headline: "Mugabe cornered." One driver was so jubilant that he got out of his moving car and danced in front of it for a couple of minutes as the empty vehicle coasted slowly down a street lined with cheering crowds. Protesters gather calling for Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe  Credit:  PHILIMON BULAWAYO Some white Zimbabweans joined the crowd at Harare's Freedom Square, also known as Robert Mugabe Square. Some whites and blacks hugged each other. Soldiers began approaching the demonstrators and urging them to head to the Zimbabwe Grounds, where speeches were set to be delivered. The Zimbabwe Grounds were chosen for the symbolism. The location is where Zimbabweans gathered to cheer Mugabe's return from exile in 1980 after the liberation war from white minority rule. Now the crowds wish to meet there and urge Mugabe's departure. Having a little sob watching the march in #Harare from afar. @bevseb took this amazing video. People fist-pumping and thanking the soldiers for forcing #Mugabe to resign. Jubilation on ground.

Argentine navy loses contact with submarine carrying 44

Argentine navy loses contact with submarine carrying 44 Argentina’s navy was hunting on Friday for one of its submarines which has been reported missing off the country’s south coast with a crew of 44 on board. The navy said it had not had contact with the submarine, the San Juan, for 48 hours. "We have not been able to find, or have visual or radar communication with the submarine," navy spokesman Enrique Balbi told a news conference. The TR-1700 class diesel electric submarine had been returning from a routine mission to Ushuaia near the southernmost tip of South America, to its base at Mar del Plata, around 400 kilometers (240 miles) south of Buenos Aires. The San Juan’s last contact with the navy command was on Wednesday morning, Balbi said. Argentina said it launched an air and sea search on Thursday, involving a destroyer and two corvettes. An initial search in an area around the sub’s last known position, some 430 kilometers off the southeastern Valdez peninsula, provided no clues. Picture released by Telam on November 17, 2017 showing the ARA San Juan submarine in Buenos Aires Balbi said the search was hampered "because it was carried out at night and in bad meteorological conditions prevailing in the area of operations." The navy denied a press report that there may have been a fire onboard. Balbi appealed for caution. "I don’t want to dramatise the issue. We’re lacking communication and don’t know what happened," he said. "There may be a battery issue, a problem of power supply," the spokesman said, adding that navy protocol was that the submarine would surface if any power problems were detected. The San Juan sailed 10 days ago from Mar del Plata to Ushuaia. It spent three days there before heading off on the return voyage, Balbi said. Among those on board is Argentina’s first female submarine officer, weapons officer Eliana Krawczyk, 35. "Let us pray that nothing has happened to any crewmember. At sea they are all brothers, and a submarine carries more risk than a ship," her father Eduardo told Todo Noticias TV. The San Juan is one of three submarines in the Argentine fleet. Sixty-five meters (213 feet) long and seven meters wide, it was built by Germany’s Thyssen Nordseewerke and launched in 1983. It underwent a re-fit between 2007 and 2014 to extend its usefulness by some 30 years.
