Libya Under Attack!!!!

In Amerika, Diplomasi, Ekonomi / Economy, Gas / Oil, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Military, Palestine, Perisikan / Intelligent, Politik / Politic, War, World on March 22, 2011 at 4:49 pm

As i read a news lately, the new world war against “leadership” happened again in Muslim country. Yes, Libya!!!.

Why Libya this 2011? Its because of the reformation made by their peoples which is against  government of Libya? and the counter attack by the government army has attract attention of world so called “police” – Britain, France & US. Why this three countries has so much concern on Libya minority people who want the Libya Leader to step down from his position? I don’t think so.

As we can see, this riot has “secret agenda” . The agenda is to used the minority of opposition peoples to launch attacked against Libya Government. while the real “fire” behind all of this mess is comes from B.F.US. This three police has used UN to make their attack became LEGAL. These police who are really want Gadaffi to step down. As soon as he out of his position. Then these three polices will initiate their propaganda and agenda to control over this nation.

As we knows, few years back. Gadaffi is a strong leader and the West Country are afraid of him. Now, it is the time for them to pay back in LEGAl WAY!!!.

p/s: I hope the Islam Republic of Iran able to defense their country and i really hope that the rise of Iran in Middle East will bring more security and eliminated the West influence on OIL and GAS in the Middle East.

Northern Iraq’s budding Chinatown

In China, Comodity, Ekonomi / Economy, Gas / Oil, Iraq, Policy, Politik / Politic, Sosial Politik, World on February 16, 2011 at 2:17 am

As foreign investment increases in Iraqi Kurdistan, cultural boundaries are being broken.

  1. Ling, from Anhui province in eastern China, has been managing the shop there for about six months after responding to a newspaper advertisement by a Chinese firm.
  2. The Chinese market is in the newly opened Kawa Mall in Sulaimaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan’s second city. Chinese people, outlets and a restaurant dominate the top two floors, which are reserved for firms from the world’s second biggest economy, of the Kurdish-owned shopping centre.
  3. The majority of the approximately 500 Chinese in Sulaimaniyah, which has a municipal population of about 750,000, work in the mall. Chinese flags, lucky cats and paper lanterns make for an incongruous sight as locals in the widely pleated trousers, flayed suit jackets and turbans of Iraqi Kurdistan pass by.
  4. Foreign investment is increasing in Iraqi Kurdistan. More than half of the 1,170 foreign firms investing there are Turkish, working in areas such as construction. Multinational firms are monitoring development of the area’s 43.7 billion barrels of proven oil and 25.5 billion barrels of potential reserves.
  5. Funds from abroad are also making their way into retail in an attempt to exploit the consumer potential of the 4.7 million strong local population, of which more than half are under the age of 20.
  6. International investment surpassed $14bn from mid-2006 to September 2010, unconfirmed official sources have said.
  7. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is hoping the estimated 250,000 to 300,000 foreigners it has so far attracted to the region will help to enervate some of those deficiencies. Read the rest of this entry »

  4. Bedouin tribesmen of the Sinai Peninsula attempted to blow up the pipeline last July as tensions intensified between them and the Egyptian government, which they accuse of discrimination and of ignoring their plight.

Yemen & Syiria

In Egypt, Ekonomi / Economy, Politik / Politic, Revolution, Syiria, World, Yemen on February 3, 2011 at 7:56 am

From Tunisia to Egypt then to Syiria and now effecting Yemen. Al-Assad also told the Wall Street Journal that a domino effect with unrest spreading from Egypt and Tunisia to Syria was unlikely because his country is different.

A few fact from Al-Jazera

YEMEN

  1. In an announcement on Wednesday, Saleh said he plans for elections in April had been scrapped along with constitutional amendments that would have seen him become president for life.
  2. “No extension, no inheritance, no resetting the clock,” Saleh said during an emergency session of parliament and the consultative council ahead of a “day of rage” organised by civil society groups and opposition leaders for Thursday in all provinces.
  3. Poverty is widespread in Yemen, with 45 per cent of its 21.1 million people living on less than $2 a day, according the UN Development Programme.

SYIRIA

  1. Organisers say protests will be staged in front of the parliament in the capital, Damascus, on Friday and Saturday, and at Syrian embassies across the world.
  2. Several pages have been set up on Facebook, with the most popular one, named “The Syrian Revolution”, “liked” by about 13,000 people by Thursday.
  3. However, many of those writing comments on Facebook appeared to be Syrians living abroad calling on their “brothers” at home to protest.
  4. Facebook is officially blocked in Syria since November 2007. However, many young Syrians bypass the hurdle by using proxy servers and, in August last year, there were about 30,000 Facebook users registered in the country.
  5. As in Egypt, government critics in Syria complain of corruption and limitations to political freedom and human rights.
  6. The official unemployment rate is around 10 per cent, but some analysts say as many as every fourth Syrian is actually without a job.
  7. Calls for protests in a numer of Middle East countries are circulating on Twitter, including Yemen, February 3, Algeria, February 12, Bahrain, February 14 and Libya, February 30.

Squeezing Iran: Oil and sanctions

In Ekonomi / Economy, Iran, Politik / Politic, World on January 25, 2011 at 7:19 pm

Since the Islamic revolution in 1979 Iran’s relations with the West have been rocky.

GDP: Iran’s five-year economic development plans for 2000-2015 set a target of 8% growth for the country’s gross domestic production (GDP), but except for few years in this period, Iran’s economy has largely under-performed. It took a sharp fall in 2008 as a result of plummeting oil prices which followed global financial meltdown. Oil and gas exports constitute some 60% of Iran’s revenues.

Oil Production: While showing a slow but steady increase in the past 30 years, Iran’s oil production started to decline since 2005 due to lack of investment in developing current and new oil and gas fields. Iran’s complicated buy-back scheme and the country’s political situation have put off international oil companies from working with a country that sits on world’s fourth largest oil reserves.

Foreign investment: Iran’s official statistics for foreign direct investment have in the past few years been contradictory. Some official figures include memoranda of understanding which were never signed into contracts. But all statistics show a decline in foreign investment since President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office in 2005. Unlike his reformist predecessor Mohammad Khatami who encouraged foreign investment, Mr Ahmadinejad’s defiant policies have discouraged foreigners from investing in Iran.
