May And Brexit

Oleh : Toni Ervianto

The failure to implement Brexit or British Exit which had gotten since 2016 referendum has been made British Prime Minister, Theresa May will step down on June 7, 2019.

The failure to implement Brexit because all of proposal which made by Conservative Party, the rulling party in British parliament always denied by Labor Party in the house of representatives. Because of that. Theresa May has made a decision to retire as British Prime Minister.

I think there are several political barrier which makes May does not realize British Exit or known as Brexit such as firstly, the rivalry to get sphere of influence in the current British political struggle has been gone to worst path between Conservative party and Labor party. As the opposition political party, Labor party has always been made unpredicted movement.

Secondly, as Prime Minister, Theresa May neither gather nor recruit her political rivals through populist and lucrative political and economic policy. It seem likes May does not enough has a solidarity maker figure.

Thirdly, between May and Juncker, the chief of European Union have “former dispute and disagree” about Brexit. European Union does not want British leave from these communities, because it could make EU facing several problems related to economic and security matters.

Fourthly, May wants to make political sensation through Brexit, if it is success to implement. But May seem like fail to scan and to adopt “silent voices” either British people or EU people which actually they won’t separate by Brexit.

Houthi Rebels Step up Attacks Against Saudi Arabia

Houthi Rebels Step up Attacks Against Saudi Arabia

Since April, Houthi rebels have conducted at least ten separate missile or drone strikes on Saudi targets, including airports, oil pipelines, and other energy infrastructure.

Despite boasting the world’s third largest military budget, the Saudis’ Patriot missile-defense system has performed inconsistently in the face of mounting Houthi attacks.
Since the beginning of the war in Yemen, Iran has increased its support for Houthi rebels in both the quantity and quality of the weapons it provides.

As tensions in the region escalate, Iran will continue to rely on its network of proxy and militia groups to strike out against its adversaries, including the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

As the conflict drags on in Yemen, Houthi rebels backed by Iran have stepped up their campaign to pressure Saudi Arabia. Since April, the rebels have conducted at least ten separate missile or drone strikes on Saudi targets, including airports, oil pipelines, and other energy infrastructure. An attack last week involved several drones that crashed into the parking area of the Abha airport in Saudi Arabia. That attack killed a Syrian national and wounded seven other people. The Houthis claimed responsibility for the attack, with spokesman Yahia al-Sarie noting that the rebels had deployed drones against the airports in Abha as well as Jizan. A June 13 cruise missile strike by the Houthis against the same airport in Abha injured 26 people. Despite boasting the world’s third largest military budget, the Saudis’ Patriot missile-defense system has performed inconsistently in the face of mounting Houthi attacks.

These attacks are another sign that the war in Yemen is nowhere near an end. Moreover, the recent escalation has demonstrated that Iran views the Houthis as a valuable asset through which it can conduct proxy warfare, as tensions continue to rise in the Persian Gulf. Ironically, in what could accurately be described as a self-fulfilling prophecy, Riyadh claimed that substantial Iranian military support to the Houthis in Yemen was its raison d’etre for its intervention there. While it is true that when the Saudi-led coalition first began operations in Yemen, Iran provided some support to the Houthis, over the past several years the level and degree of that support has increased dramatically. Far from countering Iranian influence in Yemen, then, the war has amplified it. This is part of Iran’s traditional playbook, part of which is supplying its network of proxies and militias with a range of weaponry. A Saudi blockade to deny Iranian weapons shipments to the Houthis has continued to be unsuccessful.

Tensions between Iran and the U.S., as well as with Saudi Arabia and the UAE, are approaching critical levels. During an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting on June 24, Kuwait—which holds the Council’s presidency for June—condemned recent mine attacks against oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, which Iran is widely suspected of conducting. Kuwait also stressed the need for all parties to exercise ‘maximum restraint’ to avoid greater conflict. Yet as seen in Yemen, that conflict is already escalating, with civilians continuing to pay the price.

The Trump administration supports the Saudi and UAE-led campaign in Yemen, despite increased congressional opposition. Washington views Yemen as one of the front lines in its regional conflict with Iran. The administration’s campaign of ‘maximum pressure’ against Iran has led it to ignore the counterproductive nature of the conflict in Yemen. Trump’s foreign policy has assumed a zero-sum nature with respect to Iran, where any action that American allies take to counter or rollback Iranian influence in the Middle East is considered acceptable, despite what are clearly negative second and third order effects, including widespread poverty, famine, and disease in Yemen (TSC)

Persia Bukan Tandinganmu

Persia Bukan Tandinganmu

oleh : Andi Naja FP Paraga

Pesaing besar Persia dahulu adalah Bizantium Romawi yang memiliki United State yang lebih besar dari yang dimiliki Amerika Serikat saat ini. Namun perjalanan sejarah memastikan Romawi kehilangan kedigdayaannya dan kini hanya menjadi sebuah Negara yang seolah tak memiliki jejak adikuasa di tengah Benua Biru. Persaingan Eksistensi adidaya telah menempatkan Persia menjadi pemenang. Kini Bizantium Persia sejak Tahun 1979 bernama Republik Islam Iran. Nama baru ini menandai berakhirnya kekuasaan Amerika Serikat melalui boneka USA Reza Pahlevi sang sekutu USA yang pernah menjadi Presiden Iran yang dahulu

Amerika Serikat tentu sangat kehilangan muka karena tidak hanya kehilangan mitra besar di Timur Tengah namun mereka merasa kehilangan logika militer. gerakan rakyat yang dipimpin oleh seorang kakek Ayatullah Khomaini telah menghabisi seluruh pengaruh USA di Negeri para Mullah(Ulama) ini tanpa sisa. Sang boneka Reza Pahlevi harus tunggang langgang mengarungi nasib tragisnya. Amerika Serikat tak bisa membayangkan bagaima kekuatan besar yang ia bangun puluhan tahun tumbang tanpa sisa hanya dalam waktu beberapa hari. Dunia pun tercengang karena negara pemimpin blok barat itu harus menerima fakta kehilangan superioritasnya justru ketika penguasaannya terhadap Timur Tengah begitu massif.

Tetapi Negara Imperialis ini mencoba mengakhiri deritanya dengan memanfaatkan Negara yang bertetangga dengan Iran. Pilihannya adalah IRAK sebuah Negara yang dipimpin oleh seorang diktator dari partai Ba’ath bernama Saddam Hussein. Tak pelak USA mendukung perang panjang Irak melawan Iran selama 9 tahun hingga mereka kelelahan karena tak kunjung menang. Saddam Hussein yang dipersiapkan menjadi pemimpin Jazirah Arab oleh USA itu ternyata bukan singa gurun. Ia tak lebih dari seekor keledai yang diharuskan menjadi singa bahkan lebih suka menghabisi lawan politiknya sendiri didalam negeri. Saddam Hussein gagal total bahkan menyeret negaranya pada krisis panjang. Saddam Hussein pun ditinggalkan Amerika Serikat dan mencoba menutupi kekecewaannya dengan menginvasi Kuwait.

Saddam Hussein menerima tulah besar karena Invasinya ke Kuwait menjadi papan luncur kejatuhannya. Kuawait juga merupakan Sekutu Amerika Serikat yang masih dalam bulan madu. Negara Kecil namun kayak minyak dan gas itu adalah jarahan baru yang menggiurkan sementara Irak sudah porak poranda akibat perang selama 9 tahun melawan Iran. Amerika Serikat tahu persis bagaimana menghadapi Saddam Hussein dan bagaimana menghadapi Sistem Militer yang mereka bangun sendiri puluhan tahun di Irak. Untuk itu USA mengundang semua sekutunya di Nato menghancurkan seluruh Fasilitas Senjata Nuklir dan berbalik 360 derajat menuduhkan semua perbuatan jahannam mereka kepada Saddam Hussein dan menjadi alasan kuat mereka untuk mengakhiri kekuasaan Bonekanya sendiri di Irak.

Tetapi mimpi besar mereka untuk menguasai kembali Iran tetap menjadi tekad USA dari presiden ke Presiden. Namun Iran sudah menetapkan USA adalah setan besar yang harus dihadapi dengan segala cara bahkan Negeri Para Mullah ini dengan tegas mengatakan setiap upaya USA di Timur Tengah harus dilawan walaupun bukan berada di Wilayah teritorial Iran. Upaya Amerika Serikat membangun ISIS selama 40 tahun dan mencoba untuk memporak porandakan Irak dan Suriah digagalkan Iran bekerjasama dgn Irak dan Suriah dalam waktu 4 tahun. Amerika Serikat mencoba menginvasi Yaman dengan menggunakan Arab Saudi sebagai sekutu loyalnya walaupun telah mengirim tentara bayaran yang mahal, namun tak mampu menaklukan Yaman bahkan kini Saudi Arabia harus menerima fakta bahwa Wilayah Negerinya yg berbatasan dengan Yaman menjadi sasaran Perang Militer Yaman.

USA semakin Panik dan semua sekutunya di Timur Tengah tentu wajib membantu Ambisi majikan besar mereka. Ketika IUSA menyatakan Perang terhadap Iran lewat Donald Trump dan mulai melakukan Pressure di Selat Harmous namun tak bisa berbuat apa-apa,sementara drone mata-mata USA hancur berkeping-keping di Langit Iran dihajar Senjata Iran membuat nyali Donald Trump menciut. Didalam Negeri mereka(USA)antaran Presiden bersama Petinggi Militernya berbeda pendapat dengan PENTAGON yg menyimpulkan bahwa perang melawan Iran adalah kealahan besar sambil menerangkan analisis militernya. Beberapa Negara Eropa meminta USA mempertimbangkan dengan matang karena hancurnya drone mata-mata Super Canggih USA merupakan Signal buruk bagi USA.

Eropa adalah Sejarah Bizantium Romawi dan pasti tau bahwa yang dihadapi Amerika Serikat kini adalah Generasi Bizantium Persia. Jika Amerika Serikat tak ingin menjadi sejarah pahit jilid II sebaiknya menahan diri. AMERIKA SERIKAT adalah Cerminan Eropa dan dapat dikatakan USA adalah Eropa di Benua Amerika. Akankah mereka ingin kehilangan USA-nya. Tentu tidak. Donald Trump Si Mulut Besar ini biarlah diajari oleh Bangsa Iran bahwa “imperialisme” mereka sudah berlebihan. Biarlah ia merasakan Sendiri bagaimana menghadapi Negara yang jiwa mereka hidup karena Panggilan Sayyidus Syuhada Al Imam Husein Putra Ali Bin Abithalib Sang Cucu Nabi Akhir Zaman. Negara itu memang telah mempersiapkan dirinya menjadi lawan setan besar itu tidak hanya dengan Modal Spritualitas yang tinggi tetapi juga dengan Modal Militerisme yang terbalut Spritualutas.

Trump Ancam Tutup Perbatasan Dengan Meksiko Minggu Depan

Trump Ancam Tutup Perbatasan Dengan Meksiko Minggu Depan

Jayakartapos, Presiden Donald Trump mengancam akan menutup perbatasan selatan atau sebagian besar perbatasan, jika Meksiko tidak menghentikan imigran yang menyeberang ke AS tanpa otorisasi, dan ini akan dilakukan minggu depan, ujarnya Jum’at (29/03).

Melansir dari ABC News, Trump sepanjang hari mengulangi ancamannya dan mengatakan dia “tidak main-main” sambil berjanji untuk menutup perbatasan Selatan “untuk waktu yang lama” jika Meksiko tidak bertindak mencegah orang menyeberangi perbatasan ke Amerika Serikat.

Meksiko dapat menghentikannya tepat di perbatasan selatan mereka, ujar Trump kepada wartawan, Jumat (29/03). “Mereka memiliki perbatasan selatan dan mereka memiliki perbatasan yang dapat diatur dengan sangat baik.”

Presiden Meksiko, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, dalam sebuah acara di Veracruz, Jumat malam (29/03) mengatakan, bahwa dia tidak secara khusus membahas penutupan perbatasan, tetapi mendukung diplomasi.

“Kami telah memberi tahu Presiden Trump sendiri bahwa cara terbaik untuk menangani fenomena migrasi adalah menciptakan lapangan kerja dan memiliki kesejahteraan di Amerika Tengah dan Meksiko dan inilah cara kami memecahkan masalah, tidak dengan cara lain ujar Lopez Obrador, seperti yang dilansir dari ABC News.

Otoritas perbatasan AS memperkirakan jumlah imigran tidak berdokumen yang berhenti di perbatasan selatan dapat mencapai 1 juta pada akhir tahun, dan berpotensi dua kali lipat level tahun lalu serta meningkat 140 persen dibandingkan tahun pertamanya di kantor.

Ini bukan pertama kalinya Trump mengancam akan menutup perbatasan selatan. Setelah gelombang imigran berusaha memasuki San Diego pada November 2018, presiden merespons dengan ancaman serupa.(Icha)

Indonesians People Did Not Want ISIS Members Come Back To Indonesia

Indonesians People Did Not Want ISIS Members Come Back To Indonesia

 

Jayakartapos, Indonesians taking refuge at the Kurdish-run Al-Hol camp in Al-Hasakah, Syria, are begging to come home because supplies are starting to run out.

Mariam Abdullah, one of about 50 Indonesians in the camp, asked for help so that she and her family can return to Indonesia in a two-minute video posted on Indonesian online news outlet Tirto.id. “We are asking for help so we can return home,” Mariah said as quoted by Tirto.id.

Indonesians taking refuge at the Kurdish-run Al-Hol camp in Al-Hasakah, Syria, are begging to come home because supplies are starting to run out.

Mariam Abdullah, one of about 50 Indonesians in the camp, asked for help so that she and her family can return to Indonesia in a two-minute video posted on Indonesian online news outlet Tirto.id. “We are asking for help so we can return home,” Mariah said as quoted by Tirto.id.

Mariam claimed that she, her husband and four children were from Bandung, West Java.

She said she and her children had fled the village of Baghouz two days prior to the interview with the online news outlet. Mariam told the reporter, Afshin Ismaeli, that her husband, Saifuddin, was missing.

A recent update from the World Health Organization (WHO) revealed that there were approximately 67,000 internally displaced people who resided in the camp as of March 14. This number is exceeding the original capacity of the camp, which was initially designed to hold 10,000 people.

Due to the unexpected number of incoming arrivals, there has been a shortage of health-care services in the area, which has resulted in the refugees suffering from hypothermia and various communicable diseases. As of March 14, the organization recorded 120 deaths in the camp, in which 80 percent of the casualties are children under 5 years old.

Despite of the camp’s alarming state, many Indonesian netizens showed no sympathy for Mariam as well as the other Indonesians who are suffering the same fate as her.
One Twitter user, @rizamsyafiq, questioned why they joined the Islamic State group in the first place.

“They made a conscious decision to go there, betrayed the nation in the process, and are begging to come home after the Islamic State group lost. I only have one thing to tell them: suck it,” he wrote on his account on Thursday. Another user, @qlytooq, blatantly told them not to come back to Indonesia. “Enjoy the paradise that you wanted, don’t ever come back to Indonesia.” he wrote (https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2019/03/29/is-sympathizers-from-indonesia-want-to-come-home-amid-dire-conditions-in-camp).

Meanwhile, an international issues observer, Wildan Nasution in Pekanbaru, Riau said after Islamic State had completely been defeated by Syria’s military (SDF) which was backed up by the United States, several countries which have their citizens who had joined as ISIS symphatizers or members, have same problems because they want to come back to their country including Indonesia.

“I think the political stance of Indonesia’s government on this matter has been clear that we are not permit their come back to their homeland, because many of Indonesian’s people have been worried if ISIS symphatizers have given permit to come back, they have other chance to spread their radical values among our society,” Wildan said (Red).
