This is the terrifying moment tensions between authorities and Mexico's notorious drug cartels came to a head when a brutal shootout took place near to the border with the US . Pelts of bullets were exchanged by both the army and rival cartels in this dramatic clash over territory in the town of Rio Bravo, in the north-eastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas. An "ongoing war" is believed to be taking place in the area as two rival drug gangs want to take over control of the Golfo Cartel area. The conflict is said to have escalated and resulted in army officers having to get involved this week, with one terrified witness capturing the height of tensions on camera.
The Mayor of Venice is taking the rational approach to terrorism for a change. For this he likely will not be allowed to remain as mayor. But in WW2 if you heard a man in a Nazi uniform running at you with a rifle yelling Zeik Heil, it would be rational to shoot him down fast as well.
Hungary returns to its roots as a historic bastion of Christianity, after suffering 200 years of Islamic Ottoman rule and Soviet Communist domination.
No way is Hungary going to go down that slippery slope for Europe by allowing thousands of Muslims into the country to chip away at the Judeo-Christian values and culture that enable Hungary to remain Hungary.
The U.S. Navy on Thursday released names of one sailor who died and nine others who were missing after the USS John McCain collided with an oil tanker near Singapore.
Divers recovered the remains of Electronics Technician 3rd Class Kenneth Aaron Smith, 22, who the Navy listed as being from New Jersey. His mother said Smith grew up in Novi, Michigan, and moved to Norfolk, Virginia, as a teenager with his father.
The military says five sailors were injured and 10 were missing following Monday's collision. The Navy says missing soldiers were from Missouri, Texas, Maryland, Ohio, New York, Connecticut and Illinois.
The collision tore a hole in the ship's left rear hull and flooded adjacent compartments, including crew berths and machinery and communication rooms. The U.S. Navy said it has suspended search and rescue efforts, though divers continue search and recovery efforts inside flooded compartments of the ship.
Here are brief portraits of Smith and the missing sailors:
Electronics Technician 3rd Class Kenneth Aaron Smith, 22, of New Jersey
Darryl Smith called his son "a great young man" who made his family "incredibly proud."
"Kenneth was a great young man, son and sailor," the elder Smith said in a statement issued by the Navy. "He truly loved his family, the Navy and his shipmates. I am incredibly proud of his service to our country. He will be greatly missed and I am thankful we had 22 wonderful years together."
The third-generation sailor, who worked in radar technology, was in the fourth year of a seven-year commitment and had considered a military career like his father.
April Brandon, who lives in Michigan, told Detroit media outlets that her son joined the Navy out of a desire to serve his country but also for the education it provided. His long-term goal was to develop video games.
Electronics Technician 3rd Class Dustin Louis Doyon, 26, of Connecticut
Doyon enlisted in the Navy in April 2015 and his first ship was the USS John S. McCain.
Doyon's family said Thursday that it is a very difficult time and his relatives were still hopeful he would be found and come home. Doyon had first reported to the USS John S. McCain in June 2016.
"We appreciate the courageous work of the crew in the aftermath of the collision," the family said in a statement.
Doyon graduated from Cathedral High School in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 2009. The school was destroyed in a tornado in 2011 and its students were later sent to a new regional Catholic high school, Pope Francis High School.
The school says its entire community is praying for Doyon and his family during this uncertain time.
Democratic U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal called for "a swift and thorough investigation to determine how this could have happened and how to prevent future tragedy." He added that it's the fourth Navy accident in the Pacific since January and second involving a Connecticut sailor.
Ngoc T. Truong Huynh of Watertown, Connecticut, was killed in a June collision between a destroyer and container ship off Japan. He was one of seven sailors killed aboard the USS Fitzgerald.
Electronics Technician 1st Class Charles Nathan Findley, 31, of Missouri
Findley's sister, Toni Greim, says she and Findley spent most of their childhoods "attached at the hip" and "moved around a lot as children with a Navy dad."
After spending some of his childhood in the Kansas City suburb of Parkville and attending high school in the northern Missouri city of St. Joseph, Findley got his GED and found the Navy. Greim, who is 34, said her younger brother was "really into computers."
"It's crazy how much he excelled," Greim told WDAF-TV on Wednesday. "He's always graduated first of his class. He became First Class. He's getting awards; he's sailing around the world; he fell in love with a woman named Riho and married her."
Findley has an 8-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son who live in Virginia with their mom.
Greim said the hard part is "just not knowing" what happened to her brother.
"I want to know where my brother is — I want to know what's taking so long," she said.
Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Timothy Eckels Jr., 23, of Maryland
Eckels initially wanted to go into the Army, but his mother put her foot down.
"Absolutely not," Rachel Eckels recalled telling her son in an interview with The Baltimore Sun. "They're the first to go to war, the first on the line," she said.
Eckels enlisted in the Navy before graduating from Manchester Valley High School in 2012, but had to delay entering the service due to medical issues, his mother said. She told the newspaper he was an athlete in school and loved cooking.
Rachel Eckels said he would call her from the ship a couple of times a week and tell her about their port visits in Japan, Vietnam, Australia and Singapore and about life at sea.
"At night the sea is so still that it looks like ice or a sheet of water," she recalled her son telling her.
The last call from her son came Sunday morning, but she missed it, she told the Sun. Hours later, her ex-husband texted her about the collision, she said.
Electronics Technician 2nd Class Kevin Bushell, 26, of Maryland
Bushell tried a few jobs after high school but nothing really excited him until he decided to join the Navy, his father said.
Thomas Bushell said the service ended up being a good fit for his son, who didn't mind the regimented schedule or taking orders.
When Bushell was growing up, the two of them enjoyed riding all-terrain vehicles in the woods together. Thomas Bushell described his son as an outgoing man who gets along with everyone.
"There was never a mean bone in that boy's body," Bushell said. "He was a joy growing up. He was just the sweetest boy," he said.
If his son is gone, it's because "God wanted him back," Bushell said.
"To me, he had nothing left to prove to the rest of the world or anybody about what kind of man he was," Bushell said.
Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Corey George Ingram, 28, of New York
A county executive from New York's Hudson Valley expressed his support and admiration for the bravery of Ingram and his fellow sailors, as well as those involved in the search and recovery efforts.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with his parents, Hubert and Jacqueline, one of our own Dutchess County employees, and his friends and loved ones during this time," Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro said. "We appreciate the brave men and women who are searching for Corey and his fellow sailors, and we pray they soon bring these American heroes home."
Ingram's parents, Hubert and Jacqueline, live in Poughkeepsie, where his mother works for the county's Department of Social Services.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement that his "heart goes out to" relatives and colleagues of Ingram and his shipmates, who "dedicated their lives to serving our nation."
Electronics Technician 3rd Class John Henry Hoagland III, 20, of Texas
When looking out from the deck of the USS John McCain, Hoagland often was struck by the immensity of the Pacific Ocean and the sparkling clarity of the stars above.
His mother, Cynthia Kimball, said Hoagland knew as a 5-year-old that military service was for him. A recruiter steered him toward the Navy.
"He wouldn't have wanted to be in any other branch," Kimball said Wednesday. "He sends me pictures of just water."
Hoagland spent his early years in Cleveland, Texas, northeast of Houston, and later lived in the Central Texas city of Killeen. He had long expressed an interest in stepping out of Texas and traveling the world, she said.
Hoagland enlisted in 2015 and has served aboard the McCain since October as an electronic technician.
"He's very proud of what he does," says Kimball, who lives with her husband at Fort Benning in Georgia.
Interior Communications Electrician 3rd Class Logan Stephen Palmer, 23, of Illinois
Palmer loved serving in the Navy because it let him see the world after an eye injury kept him from being an Air Force fighter pilot, brother Austin Palmer said.
He said his family is in shock and worried but hopeful after hearing Logan is among the missing. He told WAND-TV in Decatur, Illinois, "I speak for my family when I say that we have put our faith in God's mighty hands."
The interior communications electrician 3rd class petty officer graduated from Sangamon Valley High School. His family said in a statement released by the U.S. Navy that his relatives are thankful for all who have offered prayers and support as they await word from the military. They called it "a very difficult time for our family."
The Palmer family attends Life Foursquare Church, where the Rev. Mark Cooper told the (Decatur) Herald and Review there are hundreds of people praying, "pulling together and believing for the best in this situation."
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis said he's spoken with Palmer's mother, Theresa Palmer, and called the family "extremely proud and patriotic."
Electronics Technician 2nd Class Jacob Daniel Drake, 21, of Ohio
Drake's fiancée, Megan Partlow, said she has been planning their wedding scheduled for next summer, but now is overwhelmed and unsure how to proceed.
Partlow, 20, told the Columbus Dispatch that Drake last texted her on Sunday. Drake's relatives gathered at their home in the rural Ohio village of Cable, about 50 miles west of Columbus, but she said they aren't ready to talk.
"I just want him to be safe," she said.
Drake graduated from Triad High School, and fellow graduate Boston Gregg remembers Drake once fit himself into a school locker "just to prove a teacher wrong."
"Everybody I know is praying for him and pulling for him," Gregg said.
Drake's sister, Veronica Drake, told the Springfield News-Sun that he joined the Navy after high school graduation partly out of a desire to travel. She last talked with him a few days before the collision.
"In December he was going to be back in the United States for good," she said.
Interior Communications Electrician 1st Class Abraham Lopez, 39, of Texas.
The alumnus of El Paso's Irvin High School enlisted in the Navy in 1997. The Navy says Lopez had been stationed in Japan, Spain, Pearl Harbor, San Diego and the Great Lakes before he joined the McCain crew in November 2014.
He was an enlisted surface warfare specialist with a Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medal and the Navy Marine Corps Achievement Medal to his credit.
In a statement, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Lopez and Electronics Technician 3rd Class John H. Hoagland III, also from Texas, "represent the best Texas has to offer," and he extended condolences to his family.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke of El Paso also extended condolences to the Lopez family. Regarding the collision, the House Armed Services Committee member told the El Paso Times that "there has to be accountability for this and make sure this doesn't happen again."
Karoub reported from Detroit. Associated Press reporters Jennifer McDermott in Providence, Rhode Island, Chris Carola in Albany, New York, Heather Hollingsworth in Kansas City, Missouri, Alanna Durkin Richer in Brookline, Massachusetts, Lisa Cornwell in Cincinnati, David Warren and Terry Wallace in Dallas and Caryn Rousseau in Chicago, as well as researcher Rhonda Shafner in New York, contributed to this report.
An Islamist terrorist cell have blown themselves up after being surrounded by special forces. The gang of Muslim radicals were being hunted by the secret services in connection with the attempted murder of police officers. Cops tracked the four extremists to a house in the village of Psedach in south western Russia's Republic of Ingushetia. Federal Security Service operatives ordered them to surrender and give themselves up. But rather than be captured the extremists began shooting at the officers, who returned fire. Specialist troops fired rifles, machine guns and mortars at the property. Realising the game was up the militants then decided to blow themselves up rather than be captured. A video shows how the huge explosion from their suicide bombs ripped the roof off the little cottage. No one else was injured in the blast, which was captured in footage taken by Russian national anti-terrorism committee.
Escalation of the Doklam stand off+ into a shooting war is unlikely to deliver significant gains for China, and a wider conflict carries the risk of heavy casualties tilting the odds in favour of diplomacy prevailing despite a barrage of angry words from Beijing.
The assessment in top government circles is that a flare up at Doklam and other possible trouble-spots along the India-China border is not going to translate into a tangible territorial or strategic advantage for China as an armed conflict may not throw up clear winners and losers. If India does not suffer the humiliation as it did in the 1962 war, China's aura as the pre-eminent Asian power and rising challenger to American might could be dented — an unattractive scenario ahead of a crucial Communist Party congress due in September and a leadership conclave that precedes it.
The possibility of a conflict spreading to other areas along the 3,488km India-China border — large sections of which are disputed — is worrisome for both sides and neither has a clear upper hand. At Doklam itself, geography gives India the higher ground and a distinct military advantage. India lags behind China in border infrastructure but a conflict will be a lot less uneven than Chinese hawks anticipate and fighting could mean heavy toll for both armies.
The Russian air force has destroyed a large column of Islamic State militants, vehicles and large caliber weapons heading to the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, the Russian defense ministry has said.
According to the Alt-Left media these are peaceful protesters “seeking peace through strength.” Violent Alt-left protesters beat and pummeled Free Speech protesters today in Boston. The #FakeNews media will NEVER show you these horrible acts of violence by the alt-Left.
The European Parliament has produced a slick propaganda video claiming Europe “need[s] people to come here… to maintain the level of our welfare systems”. The video, put out on Twitter, features liberal and socialist members of the European Parliament (MEPs), who concede migrants often come from a “totally different culture”, but say it is the European people’s “responsibility” to “foster an atmosphere of integration”. EuroparlTV released the short film on the 17th of August, just hours before terrorists of North African Muslim background murdered 14 people in Spain in an Islamist attack claimed by Islamic State. -- European Parliament: “The untapped potential of migration to the EU: how refugees can inspire us all. Check out our video.”
In contrast to the migrant terrorists Europe experienced Thursday, the migrants depicted in the video seem happy to have come to the continent. They study, play in sports teams, and work in car factories and as a photographer. “The refugees that arrived here in Germany have to adapt. They come from a totally different culture, and they don’t know how things are here,” says Maryam Salehi of Cologne, Germany. Ms. Salehi claims that migrants are discriminated against in the job market, and seems to criticize Germans for expecting them to become economically active. Spain’s Day of Terror: 13 Victims and Six Suspected Terrorists Dead After Multiple Attacks
Sylvie Guillaume, a socialist and French MEP for the South-East of France, says: “At the moment when many EU member states are turning away from the European motto of ‘unity in diversity’, it’s important to remember the European values of hospitality and solitary. “A major effort needs to be made for integration policies that will benefit not only refugees, but the host countries as well.” -- Finland Killer is Moroccan Asylum Seeker, arrests made at asylum centre, victims: Finns, Brit, Swede, Italian
Cecilia Wikström, a liberal MEP from Sweden, adds: “They are here to give their contribution to growth and prosperity for Europe, and that’s why it’s so essentially important that we open up every possibility for them to integrate into our societies. “We can never, on the European level, legislate integration because it falls under the scope of subsidiarity, the national competencies. “But we can foster an atmosphere of integration, and that is your responsibility and mine. We have to share that.”
According to at least one ISIS member who very recently surrendered himself to pro-government forces, the terrorist group to which he belonged is “finished.”
This confession, captured by pro-government media, came about during a very brief and sombre conversation between a Hezbollah reporter and an elderly ISIS militant (who had surrendered earlier on) near the Zumrani crossing point in the western Qalamoun region of Syria.
In the footage below, the Hezbollah reporter holding the camera asks “why did you surrender?” In response, the ISIS fighter simply replies “because we’re finished.”
The video emerges at a time when some pro-government sources are reporting that over fifty (50) ISIS militants in western Qalamoun have surrendered themselves to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) amid an ongoing pro-government offensive against the terrorist group throughout the region.
A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters.
The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow for the groups to ignite into exactly what happened.
“We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to stop the driver as he sped away.“
“The event was being set up as far back as at least May and it went like clockwork.”
At no point is the car that plowed into the crowd of protesters perused by police – there is not a police car in sight leading into the area, or out.
Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was on the scene in Charlottesville and he backs up the police officer’s claims.
“I can say, having been in Emancipation Park from early on that morning, that what I saw with my own two eyes confirms what this law enforcement source told us. At least from all visible appearances. We saw people coming out of that park who had head-wounds, who were bleeding from the head, people walking into that park with bats, with sticks — you saw what they were wearing — helmets, body armor, they had come — and this pertains to both sides — they had come to do damage.. you cannot help but notice from that video that police had been more pro-active, they could have potentially calmed this thing down to some degree.”
Amid the Sikkim stand-off, the Chinese Army is carrying out exercises simulating real battle scenarios at high-altitude areas in Tibet, testing new equipment, including a light battle tank.
The exercises were being carried at an altitude of 5,100 metres, the Chinese language service of the state-run Xinhua news agency reported from the Tibetan capital Lhasa.
Besides testing the new equipment, the exercises involve conducting live firing exercises.
The exercises also involve combat operations command, combat synergies, live fire shooting training, and comprehensive inspection of arms integration, the report said.
The simulation also involves offensive and defensive training.
Last week, Chinese defence spokesman Colonel Wu Qin told the media here that the trials of the tank, reportedly weighing about 35 tonnes, were taking place during military exercises.
A car has hit pedestrians in the coastal town of Cambrils, some 100km from Barcelona, injuring at least six people. Five suspected terrorists were killed during a shootout with police, authorities said, adding that the attackers wore fake bomb belts.
“We have killed the alleged perpetrators,” Catalan police announced on Twitter. “We work on the hypothesis that the events of Cambrils respond to a terrorist attack.”
Authorities are now working to determine if the alleged terrorists wore explosive belts, police tweeted.
In few minutes we are going to make several controlled explosions in #Cambrils. If you hear detonations DO NOT be alarmed, are controlled!
Evergreen State College has been under siege by left-wing protesters known as Antifa, forcing the Washington state school to move its graduation off campus.
The controversy started a month ago when a professor confronted students who were calling for a "day without white people" on the campus.
The interaction went viral and the professor, Bret Weinstein, later spoke out to Fox News' Tucker Carlson about being berated by the students.
"They imagined that I'm a racist," Weinstein said. "That has caused them to imagine that I have no right to speak."
Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was in attendance during yesterday’s deadly events in Charlottesville, VA, where he reported that the police were called off as soon as things started turning violent.
“But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.” They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.“
A Police Spox Corinne Geller explains exactly how police witnessed "people on both sides" launching bottles, smoke bombs, and even cans of soda filled with cement at one another as well is police as violence continue to escalate once leftist terrorist groups arrived in order to counter protest against so-called white nationalists.
Kenya's post-election violence worsened as rioting continued the day after President Uhuru Kenyatta won a second term in a vote the opposition claims had been rigged.
Police used pepper spray and blast balls on rival demonstrations in Seattle on Sunday, just one day after violence broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, leaving one dead and dozens injured.
Sunday’s demonstrations took place less than a mile from each other, as the pro-Trump ‘Patriot Prayer’ group gathered for the ‘Freedom Rally’ in Westlake Park, and counter-protesters from the ‘Solidarity Against Hate’ movement gathered in Denny Park.
The counter-protesters marched to Westlake Park chanting and holding signs decrying hate and Nazism, with some seen burning an American flag. Officers in full riot gear blocked the crowd from reaching the ‘Freedom Rally,’ for the “safety for all those involved,” police said in a statement.
Mohammed Abed, a California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) tenure-track professor of ethics, social & political philosophy, and classical Islamic philosophy believes that genocide of white racists is “morally required”.
Mohammed Abed claims that sometimes you just have to commit genocide to save the world from the evil people…like white racists.
Unite the Right rally organizer Jason Kessler was chased away by protesters during a press conference in Charlottesville, Virginia on Sunday, August 13. Police officers had to whisk him away to safety from the crowd.
A man has been arrested and charged with murder after a car rammed into a group of people peacefully protesting against a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one person and injuring 19.
Police said a 32-year-old woman had died and that they were attempting to notify her family before releasing more details.
Col Martin Kumer, the superintendent of Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, told the Guardian that 20-year-old James Fields, of Ohio, had been arrested following the attack on Saturday.
“He has been charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death,” Kumer said in an email.
Donald Trump condemned the “violence on many sides”, but faced criticism for failing to directly denounce the far-right demonstrators.
In a separate incident, two police officers died when their helicopter, which was monitoring the far-right rally, crashed outside Charlottesville.
China could conduct a "small-scale military operation" to expel Indian troops from a contested region in the Himalayas, according to an article published a Chinese state-controlled newspaper.
Indian troops entered the area in the Doklam Plateau in June after New Delhi's ally Bhutan complained a Chinese military construction party was building a road inside Bhutan's territory.
Beijing says Doklam is located in Tibet and that the border dispute between China and Bhutan has nothing to do with India. It has demanded Indian troops withdraw.
Chinese and Indian media have taken a strident approach, with an article in the Chinese state-owned Global Times quoting a research fellow at the Institute of International Relations of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences saying China is preparing to initiate a "limited war" to push Indian soldiers out of the area.
Hu Zhiyong told the paper: "The series of remarks from the Chinese side within a 24-hour period sends a signal to India that there is no way China will tolerate the Indian troops' incursion into Chinese territory for too long.
"If India refuses to withdraw, China may conduct a small-scale military operation within two weeks."
He went on to say the military operation would aim to seize Indian personnel lingering in Chinese territory or expel them.
"India, which has stirred up the incident, should bear all the consequences," he added. "And no matter how the standoff ends, Sino-Indian ties have been severely damaged and strategic distrust will linger."

The US believes several State Department employees at the US embassy in Havana were subjected to an "acoustic attack" using sonic devices that left at least two with such serious health problems they needed to be brought back to the US for treatment, several senior State Department officials told CNN.
A sophisticated device that operated outside the range of audible sound was deployed either inside or outside the residences of US diplomats living in Havana, according to three US officials.
A US government official told CNN that the who, where and when point to "an attack" -- the US is investigating whether a third country was involved as "payback" for actions the US has taken elsewhere and to "drive a wedge between the US and Cuba."
One official said the employees could have suffered permanent hearing loss as a result.
The employees affected were not at the same place at the same time, but suffered a variety of physical symptoms since late 2016 which resembled concussions.
The State Department raised the incidents with the Cuban government over the course of several months and sent medical personnel to Havana, but have not been able to determine exactly what happened.
"It can be quite serious," one official told CNN. "We have worked with the Cubans to try and find out what is going on. They insist they don't know, but it has been very worrying and troublesome."
"It's very strange," one official said.
The FBI is now investigating with Cuba's cooperation and they will allow FBI agents onto the island according to a US government official.
Pro-migrant rescue NGO Sea-Watch has complained the Libyan coast guard interfered in their rescue operations whilst the Libyans allege the NGO was operating within its territorial waters.
NGO Sea-Watch, a Berlin-based organisation that picks up migrants in the Mediterranean and ferries them to Europe, has accused the Libyans of acting outside its territorial waters after its ship was accosted by a vessel from the Libyan coast guard on Wednesday.
In a press release, the NGO claimed they were 20 miles off the coast of Libya when a wooden boat packed full of migrants approached their position. Before the group could take the migrants on board, and take them to Europe, the Libyan patrol intervened, almost running into the NGO ship. The Libyans then took the migrants back to North Africa.
Sea-Watch claims the coast guard was operating outside of the sovereign waters of Libya, which extend 12 miles off the coast.

French police shot and arrested a suspect in a dramatic motorway chase Wednesday after a car smashed into soldiers outside a barracks in a Paris suburb, injuring six.
The suspected terror attack is the latest in a string of assaults that have hit France since January 2015, claiming more than 230 lives.
The servicemen were hit by a BMW which drove down a quiet street in the upmarket western Paris suburb of Levallois-Perret at around 6am GMT.
It accelerated as it neared the troops, rammed into them and then sped away.
"I heard a huge crash which I thought was the sound of scaffolding being put up," Thierry Chappe, a resident in a building opposite the crime scene, told AFP.
Police later gave chase to the vehicle on a motorway north of Paris, and shot and wounded the suspect, a man aged in his late 30s who was also arrested, sources involved in the manhunt said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
After military base attack, Venezuela could be on the brink of a civil war After military base attack, Venezuela could be on the brink of a civil war
Venezuela could face a full-fledged civil war if military support for dictator Nicolas Maduro erodes.
Venezuelan authorities arrested seven men over the weekend whom they claimed took part in an attack on a military base outside of Valencia, the country's third-largest city. The strike took place after a video made the rounds on social media Sunday featuring men in military fatigues calling for a rebellion against Maduro.
"The significance lies in whether this suggests that Maduro is losing his grip on the military and whether we can expect to see more mutinies to come, or if this is just an isolated incident," Stuart Culverhouse, global head of macro and fixed income research at Exotix Capital, said in an email.
"Maintaining the support of the military is a key factor in Maduro's survival, and many in the military will have a vested interest in ensuring (his) survival," Culverhouse said.
Venezuela's top-ranking military officials have benefited greatly from Maduro's government. They hold influential roles and have received considerable financial sums in exchange for their loyalty to Maduro. But experts say that support is waning as the country's economic and social conditions continue to deteriorate.
As support for Maduro dwindles, the chances of a civil war increase.
It was early June when terrorists in a rental van with 12-inch ceramic knives strapped to their wrists ran down pedestrians on London Bridge, ditched the vehicle, and then began stabbing patrons at the Borough Market. That attack made headlines around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the only stabbing attack in London this year, and Mayor Sadiq Khan this week called for Google and YouTube to crack down on videos that encourage gang violence and knife crime. -- Ummm. It's not the videos. Mayor of London: “I’m deeply concerned about the rise in knife crime. Internet giants must toughen guidelines & remove violent videos.” -- So your response to an epidemic of young men stabbing other young men to death is to police the internet? You are part of the problem.
Yeah, that'll do it. It's always a youtube video with these guys. Speaking of YouTube, the mayor appeared in a YouTube video to call for YouTube to remove videos that glorify gang violence and knife crime. Poor London. This guy is such a twit. Yes, YouTube can definitely solve the problem of knife crime in London. FFS. Internet companies don't stab people. People stab people. Better and more policing would possibly be an effective deterrent? Stop and search? Oh no that's racist. Nothing to do with the Mayor reducing stop and search by Police? Alternatively London could elect somebody, say a mayor or something like that, and make them responsible for policing. Focus on the people who plunge knives into other people's flesh & hack off limbs with machetes, Yahoo & Google don't do that. #PartandParcel
I have yet to see a keyboard jump up from a desk & start stabbing people with itself. What an idiot. Internet is not the problem. Which video committed the knife crime? I want names darn it….if violent videos are committing crimes, arrest them all! If Mayor Of Londonistan really believes knife crime is cos of YouTube, & not gangs, or imported culture/religion, then he'll never solve it. Knife crimes, acid attacks and overall security. we are living in London or third world country? I'm deeply concerned that London has turned into a 3rd world toilet since you took over and all you do is blame "internet giants". RESIGN. Censorship is the worst idea you could possibly offer. Just ban the internet and anything sharp. Nothing bad will ever happen again. How about remove violent knife wielding criminals? Just a thought….
Mexican officials say gunmen have attacked a group at a beach in the Los Cabos tourist region at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Bullets killed three men and wounded two people.
The prosecutor's office for Baja California Sur state says the attack happened Sunday afternoon at the entrance to Playa Palmilla, a popular beach next to San Jose del Cabo. Its statement gives no motive.
Authorities say the beach was crowded with tourists, both Mexican and foreign, when the shooting started, and police evacuated the area.
Southern Baja California has seen a surge in violence this year, though mostly outside tourist areas. Analysts blame much of the bloodshed on fighting among factions in the Sinaloa drug cartel and also clashes with the rival Jalisco New Generation cartel.
North Korea said on Wednesday it is "carefully examining" a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with "fire and fury".
A spokesman for the Korean People's Army, in a statement carried by the North's state-run KCNA news agency, said the strike plan will be "put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment" once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision.
In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the United States showed signs of provocation.
Earlier Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force in response to any U.S. military action.
