Mama, doar mama !

Mamele îngrijorate ale agenţilor Mosad, cei care au fost arestaţi în uşa rotativă a hotelului (ca un film cu Chaplin), au venit la Bucureşti. Încă nu se ştie ce grad au mamele dar eu zic că nu e bine să ne punem cu două mame că nu ştim din ce eşalon superior israelian ar putea să facă parte. Şi totuşi. Adică pe bune, nu cumva băieţii aştia or fi de fapt nişte interni ? Poate sunt nişte proaspeţi absolvenţi trimişi pe banii părinţilor la filiala Black Cube Bucureşti să facă şi ei nişte practică ?

Europa poloneză a apărării

Apropo de Summitul UE din decembrie dedicat apărării și mai ales apropo de opoziția britanică la constituirea unor capacități europene de apărare, recomand un articol care ilustrează cât de mult impune Polonia pe agenda securității europene.
Cam toate programele de înzestrare din Polonia au două elemente constante: primul, sisteme destinate apărării teritoriale duale, națională și europeană și, a doilea, un puternic capitol industrial național destinat cooperării europene, în curs de sincronizare cu multe dintre direcțiile preconizate de EDA- European Defence Agency.
Ministerul polonez al apărării dorește să achiziționeze aproximativ 100 de drone.

 

Poland Seeks To Boost Drone Fleet

Polish industry has developed autopilot, communication links, optronics and other payloads for UAVs bought from Israel and the US. Composite material is another area of domestic development.
The aim now is to build Polish UAVs with European industrial cooperation.
“We’re looking to establish cooperation with European industry,” Bartosiewicz said. Working with France, Germany, Spain or another European country would help plug Poland’s capability gap, he said.
Technology transfer will be one of the terms for European cooperation, he said.
By building its own UAVs, Poland falls in line with NATO’s selection of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities as a priority for the alliance, Jachol said.
A second priority for Polish forces is space imagery, which offers the potential for cooperation with France, he said.
Meanwhile, Israel failed to win a tender for mini-UAVs because of a weakness in technical support, Bartosiewicz said.

Rusia face un pas importnat spre colaborarea mai structurată cu Liga arabă, s-a convenit un plan de acțiune comun. Moscova anticipează corect, cred eu, viitorul rol sporit al Ligii arabe în perioada post-Primăvara arabă și, într-o formă sau alta, atât SUA dar și UE vor intra oficial sau neoficial în aceeași schemă cu Liga arabă, contrucția capătă contur.

South Sudan signs oil deal with Israel 18.01.2013

Sudan says it has signed an agreement with several Israeli oil companies, a potentially significant strategic move that will consolidate the Jewish state’s relations with the fledgling, oil-rich East African state.

It will also bolster Israeli moves to counter Iranian inroads into the Red Sea and a major gunrunning route from the Revolutionary Guards base at Bandar Abbas in the Persian Gulf to the Gaza Strip via Sudan.

South Sudan, which became independent of Arab-ruled Sudan in July 2011 after a decades-long civil war, is locked in a frequently violent confrontation over its oil reserves with the military-run Khartoum regime, an ally of Iran, under President Omar al-Bashir.
