India takes steps towards authoritarianism in the states of Jammu and Kashmir

Is India taking steps towards authoritarianism? Is this the new normal in fighting terror and radical Islam?

India has taken an authoritarian approach to fighting terror. The latest defensive from the Indian governments in Jammu and Kashmir seem to be a play right out of a North Korean play book. Student protests erupted in the Sri Pratap Higher Secondary School and College in Kashmir. In the eruption, students threw rocks and pro Islamic slogans were screamed.

The mob which started with school girls pelting stones evolved in to a multi gender collective rampage that injured police. At the end, tear gas, water cannons, and knight stick led concussions cooled off the situation.

Now, the Indian governments in the states of Jammu and Kashmir have banned twenty two different websites that are popular in India. This ban was immediately implemented on April 17, 2017 following that overwhelming student protest. The sites included in the ban are whatsapp, Face book and Twitter. As a further precaution, India has also banned internet data being streamed on 3g and 4g mobile phones.

What was the reason for the internet ban in the Indian States of Jammu and Kashmir?

It has not been in the news lately but there is a blazing inferno in India called the Hindu Muslim conflicts which are on the verge of being a war. When you consider the geography and demographics of the states of Jammu and Kashmir in India it starts to paint a more abstract and deep picture of something fragile and explosive. These Indian states border China and Pakistan. The religious demographic is overwhelmingly in the favor of Muslims in a country run by Hindus. This region has a history of war, riots and transitions of power.  Basically what happen in April 2017 in the states of Jammu and Kashmir of India was nothing less than an Arab spring. However, what is springing is Islamic fundamentalism, a concept that is even detrimental to their own fellow Muslims. With unrest in border states a lot of undesirable consequences can occur such as a war that spills over, or a state that is against its nation in favor of a bordering nation.

So, as a counter to stop the unrest, India blocked all communication as mentioned above.

When you think about, it is directly from the play books of Russia, Cuba and North Korea, where citizens of authoritarian regimes are deprived of communication devices in fear of a revolt. With the mathematics dramatically favoring Muslims over Hindus and other religions the fear is very real.

The United Nations has expressed major concern over this tactic India is using. These tactics as stated by the United Nations are below the standards of human rights. Furthermore, the banning of major social media sites on computers and phones blocks the freedom of expression of its public. The United Nations as well as America strongly endorses the ability and freedom to express one’s self and India’s latest move seems to be the anti-thesis of that endorsement. With this new normal of technological oppression in India, it is possible another larger and destructive protest can happen. It has the possibility of blooming in to a full blown riot and has the potential to be another attempted revolt in these states.

Is this is the new way of fighting terror? Will innocent people and citizens of a state they belong to be egregiously deprived of human rights in the name of fighting terror? The answer is only time will tell but what time is trying to say right now seems to be the eerie uttering syllables of a police state.

New Nuclear Arms Race Set in North East Asia – The Luke Warm Cold War

We have a New Nuclear Arms Race, should we get the popcorn?

The United Nations warns that Kim Jong Un may have sparked a new nuclear arms race in the region of North East Asia. This is similar to what we saw in the 1980’s with the United States and the Soviet Union.  The recent missile tests by North Korea have caused major concern in the region. Furthermore, a nuclear arms race in that region would include more players with unpredictable temperaments.

new nuclear arms raceAt first glance when you hear about it from the mainstream media it just seems like a trivial provocation. However, in my opinion this was an act of war. The North Korean missile landed in the Economic zone of Japan. It gets serious when you consider what an Exclusive Economic Zone is; an economic zone is a set territory of waters for a specific sovereign nation. These waters are used for a nation to utilize for resources: fishing, energy, aw well as exploration. If that was the United States that could have been the Florida Keys or Rockaway Beach. How would America reply to that? Let’s just say there would be a pyramid of naked North Koreans in a Luke warm cell block in Cuba.

Moreover, the new nuclear arms race in the North Eastern Asian region should be taken seriously.

That missile could have struck a Japanese boat or a critical energy infrastructure of Japan that may have been located in the part of their Economic Zone. However, the damage is already done. North Korea did in fact attack Japan with this missile test because when the missile hit the Japanese territorial water, debris from the missile damaged the coral and marine wild life in the Economic zone; as all missiles do when they hit the sea. In addition, the debris from the missile can also wash ashore in the event of an occurrence from nature.

Therefore, the race is on. The United Nations warns that these acts can cause instability in the region. Members of the Security Council commit to a nuclear resolution but North Korea does not seem as if they are ready to commit. Also, let us bear in mind that Japan is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council and China who is a permanent member of the council needs to maintain the image of being the big man on campus. In conclusion, these are all the ingredients for a new nuclear arms race in the North East Asian region happening right under our nose.  Everyone loves Kung-Fu fighting but no one wants nuclear war.

Nuclear Attack Very Possible: America Taking Major Defensive

Is a nuclear attack destined for America soon?

Signs point to a possible nuclear attack as America’s latest act shows a nation that put their guard up. Radioactive Threat Detection Systems have been deployed in Washington D.C. These threat detection systems have been attached  to 73 Fire Emergency Medical Service trucks in the nations capital as an introductory experiment that will soon be a nationwide procedure.

Image result for someone burning from a nuclear attackTo be specific, these are DARPA-developed nuclear and radiological detectors. The ultimate objective for these threat detection systems is to monitor nuclear levels in the area and detect hostile nuclear activities that may indicate a dirty bomb attack happening.  The nuclear threat detecting equipped EMS vehicles can cover over 100,000 miles and can remain in power for approximately 100,000 hours. This procedure is a test from the Darpa Sigma program. This Washington D.C. project is the guinea pig and we can expect these exercises to occur in more local municipalities in the very near future. When other jurisdictions participate, the collection of data of nuclear activity throughout the USA will be easier to detect hence leaving Americans more safe from a nuclear attack.

This has been in the works since 2016. Darpa has two kinds of detectors, one for smart phones that police can use and the other which is outfitted on the EMS trucks. These amazing machines can detect the smallest use of radioactivity that could be found in certain materials and machines such as the ones used in hospital radiology departments. Luckily the software can tell the difference.

Does the U.S. have knowledge of a dirty bomb attack looming? Is this the reason why 73 EMS trucks were equipped with radioactive detectors? Does the range of North Korean and Iranian missile capability have the United States of America concerned? The signs point to yes. To have a test of this magnitude eventually go nationwide leads me to believe that something may not be right.

Why Donald Trump will not get impeached Right Now

There are a lot of discussions, rants and chants about getting President Donald Trump impeached.

The question is can he really be impeached at this moment? At this moment, my answer is no. Why? How? Let’s first understand two things: how impeachment works and the will for a politician to kiss butt.

To describe impeachment in a nutshell, Congress has the sole power to impeach a government official and the Senate holds the court hearings regarding such matters. To be more specific, according to usa.gov: “Under the Constitution, the House of Representatives has the sole power to impeach a government official, in effect serving as prosecutor. The Senate then holds the impeachment trial, essentially serving as jury and judge, except in the impeachment of a president, when the U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice presides.” (https://www.usa.gov/laws-and-regulations)

When you keep in mind the actual process of impeachment and combine it with mathematics and political felattio many people are about to be disappointed. As for Mathematics, at the present moment, in Congress there are 238 Republicans and 193 Democrats. In the Senate the numbers add up to 48 Democrats and 52 Republicans. Given the mathematics, a majority of the Republicans and surprisingly a few Democrats are firmly behind Donald Trump like dog nose and ass. So when you consider a congress with an overwhelming majority in support of Trump as there are 238 republicans and the possibility that at least 10 Democrats in the House favor Trump, the sole power of Congress to start an impeachment proceeding seems to be, in my opinion pretty dim. The numbers favor him too much. Furthermore, when you look forward to the impeachment trial that would be handled by the Senate the same principal applies.

Despite a poor and chaotic rollout of the Travel ban, the stock market is on a dramatic rise which may signify a credible chance of business investment in the economy resulting in jobs and that may be something politicians, on a bipartisan level would not want to compromise. Allegations made about the President, although credible are pretty light at the moment, so there again, impeachment still seems far fetch. However, the situation is still unraveling and allegations can become more solid and non-ignorable to address, which could lead to impeachment proceedings, but as of right now while allegations hold some weight but not enough, my opinion is President Donald Trump is still in the clear, for now at least.
