12/09/2017 09:50 PM Ukrainian author of Manafort op-ed says sought input to avoid errors
By Pavel Polityuk KIEV (Reuters) - The author of an article that U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller believes Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort ghost-wrote in violation of a gag order said on Saturday he had sought input on the op-ed before publishing to avoid errors. On Friday, Mueller unveiled evidence against Manafort to convince a judge that he wrote the article to improve his public image. Manafort is facing charges as part of an investigation into accusations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

12/10/2017 09:50 AM IS battle may be won, but Iraq faces major challenges
Iraq may have announced a final victory over the Islamic State group in the country, but Baghdad's triumph remains fragile and the root causes for the jihadists' rise have not been tackled. It has taken a long and devastating campaign to wipe IS from the map after the jihadists threatened Iraq's very existence by seizing roughly one third of its territory in 2014. Troops backed up by the air power of a US-led coalition have waged some of the fiercest urban warfare seen anywhere in decades to oust the jihadists from a string of cities and towns across the country.

12/10/2017 01:56 AM China Is Now Making Some of the Most Powerful Guns on the Planet
Like the rest of China’s military revolution over the past quarter century, its small-arms revolution is a remarkable achievement. China’s People’s Liberation Army has traditionally relied on foreign and Communist bloc weapons manufactured in China under license—or not. Now, however, as the PLA undergoes an unprecedented modernization, a new generation of locally designed and manufactured light weaponry is arming China’s armed forces, from handguns to light machine guns.

12/09/2017 12:59 PM Iraq declares the end of its war on Isil
Iraq’s war against the Islamic State (Isil) is over and the jihadist group has been no longer controls any territory inside the country, Iraq’s prime minister declared on Saturday. Haider al-Abadi said Isil forces had been driven from their final pockets of control and that the Iraqi state was now fully in control of the country’s border with Syria. "Our forces are in complete control of the Iraqi-Syrian border and I therefore announce the end of the war against Daesh [Isil]," Mr Abadi told a conference in Baghdad. "Our enemy wanted to kill our civilisation, but we have won through our unity and our determination. We have triumphed in little time.” His announcement marked the end of four years of formal combat operations after Isil swept into western Iraq from Syria in early 2014. Within months they had seized control of much of northern Iraq, including the city of Mosul, and threatened to march assault Iraqi Kurdistan. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory US forces began airstrikes against Isil in August 2014 and after years of grinding warfare, Iraq’s military announced they had succeeded in completely clearing the country. "All Iraqi lands are liberated from terrorist Daesh gangs and our forces completely control the international Iraqi-Syrian border," said Lieutenant General Abdul-Amir Rasheed Yar Allah. The Coalition congratulate the people of Iraq on their significant victory against #Daesh. We stand by them as they set the conditions for a secure and prosperous #futureiraqpic.twitter.com/pJlGImT1Yu— The Global Coalition (@coalition) December 9, 2017 Prime Minister Theresa May congratulated Mr Abadi on successfully forcing Isil from most of the country, but warned the extremist group is "not yet defeated". The US-led military coalition against Isil tweeted its congratulations shortly after Mr Abadi’s speech. “The Coalition congratulates the people of Iraq on their significant victory against Daesh. We stand by them as they set the conditions for a secure and prosperous future Iraq.” Despite its battlefield defeat, Isil is likely to continue to inflict painful attacks against Iraqi military forces and civilians. Baghdad and other cities have been plagued by suicide bombings carried out by Isil cells even though its ground forces were nowhere nearby. With the military fight against Isil finished in Iraq, the US is focusing on how to try to confront Iranian influence in the country.

12/10/2017 08:15 PM Senator Collins says undecided on final tax bill vote
By Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins, whose support was crucial in passing the Senate tax reform bill earlier this month, said on Sunday she has not yet decided whether she will back the final measure negotiated by House and Senate leaders. The moderate Republican from Maine has laid out conditions for her support of a final "conference committee" version of the tax proposal. Republican Senate leaders worked hard to get Collins' support for the legislation, the largest change to U.S. tax laws since the 1980s that would slash the corporate tax rate.

12/10/2017 05:12 PM German firms investigated over faulty batteries link to missing Argentine submarine
Argentine parliamentarians are reportedly investigating two German firms over the replacement of batteries on the missing submarine ARA San Juan, alleging bribes were paid to secure contracts and inferior products used. The German Interior Ministry has received a request for information from the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Argentine parliament, officials confirmed to public broadcaster Bayerische Rundfunk (BR). “The suspicion exists that the batteries that were replaced were not, in part or at all, of the quality that they should have been. We don’t know either where they came from, whether from Germany or from another country. Because of this we want to know what technicians were there and who signed saying: good, this is repaired,” Cornelia Schmidt-Liermann, head of the Argentine parliamentary commission, said according to the network. A woman holds a placard with a message that reads in Spanish: "We are with you, brave ones of the ARA San Juan," Credit: Esteban Felix/AP She said it was believed that bribes may have been paid to secure contracts for the renovation, and that “German companies were involved”. The two firms from which the commission has requested information - Ferrostaal and EnerSys-Hawker - signed a contract for 5.1 million euros to replace 964 batteries on the German-built sub, BR reported. Ferrostaal has denied any responsibility, saying its role was only to mediate in the contract, for which it received a commission. EnerSys-Hawker has not yet responded publicly. Questions have been mounting in Argentina over the state of the batteries on the ARA San Juan, of which there is still no trace almost a month after its November 15 disappearance. The vessel had reported a fault with its batteries shortly before it lost contact and had been ordered to return to the Mar de Plata naval base. Three hours later, an “acoustic event” believed to be an underwater explosion was detected close to the sub’s last known location. Search for the missing Argentinian submarine San Juan The final communication from the ARA San Juan said an entry of seawater had caused a short-circuit in the batteries and “the beginnings of a fire”. Families of the 44 crew members and politicians have raised questions over the submarine’s mid-life renovation, which was completed in 2014. One aspect under scrutiny is the decision to replace all internal elements of the batteries but retain the old casings. The Argentine minister of defence, Oscar Aguad, last week (Tuesday) revealed "suspicions" that there had been corruption in the five-year renovation process, which took place under the previous government of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. He told TV channel Todo Noticias there were a number of "anomalies" that indicated overcharging and the use of sub-standard products. Mr Aguad said a legal complaint had been filed in the past over alleged corruption in the refit, but that it was "swept under the rug" without ever being investigated.
12/09/2017 01:07 PM The American Who Paid for Israel's Nuclear Bomb
Although Israel doesn’t officially acknowledge it, it is well understood that the country possesses a nuclear weapon arsenal (although the exact number of warheads are in dispute). It is similarly well understood that the United States opposed Israel’s nuclear weapons program during the John F. Kennedy and, to a lesser extent, Lyndon B. Johnson administrations. One part of the history that is less well known is that much of the funding for Israel’s nuclear weapons program came from private Americans in an effort that was spearheaded by, Abraham Feinberg, a prominent American who served as an unofficial advisor to both President Kennedy and President Johnson.
12/10/2017 07:49 AM S. Korea to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang: report
South Korea will impose new unilateral sanctions against nuclear-armed Pyongyang, a report said Sunday, in Seoul's latest effort to pressure the North after a series of weapons tests that have sent regional tensions surging. The move comes after a rare visit to North Korea by a senior UN official, who called for dialogue between Pyongyang and the international community to avert a potentially catastrophic "miscalculation" in the high-stakes nuclear crisis. Seoul's new measures, its second set of unilateral sanctions in a month, are likely to draw an angry response from Pyongyang, which views its neighbour as overly-dependent on a hostile Washington.

12/09/2017 06:02 PM Egypt reveals artefacts, mummy from tombs in ancient city of Luxor
Egypt's authorities on Saturday revealed artefacts and a linen-wrapped mummified body, possibly that of a top official, from two tombs that were discovered two decades ago in the Nile city of Luxor but had not been fully unexplored. The Ministry of Antiquities said the tombs, located in the Draa Abul Naga necropolis on Luxor's west bank, had been noted by German archaeologist Frederica Kampp in 1990s and were either unexcavated or had never been entered. Along with the mummy, archaeologists found painted wooden funeral masks and several hundred carved statues, likely dating around the end of Egypt's 17th Dynasty or the start of the 18th Dynasty, the ministry said.

12/09/2017 06:33 PM China's 'tiger mothers' rebel against punitive homework for parents
Fed up with picking up the slack in terms of helping her son with his heavy school workload, 39-year-old mother, Mrs Wang, has joined millions of like-minded parents who are calling for something that China’s ‘tiger mothers’ would have considered unthinkable only a few years ago – a break from homework. The campaign focuses on the frustrations of parents who believe they shouldn’t be spending their evenings tackling arithmetic questions or reciting complex sentence structures when they could be watching a soap or reading a magazine. It was triggered by a viral post titled: “Goodness, what have I done wrong to have to do homework with my kids.” After millions on views on Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter, parents flocked to social media to share their own stories. Since then, three Chinese provinces have issued regulations banning schools from giving out homework which would involve parents. Three years ago, Mrs Wang’s family spent their life savings to move to a desirable catchment area where they could enroll their son, now aged nine, at an elite primary school that would compel him to work long hours. Like the majority of Chinese parents, she believed she was doing the best for her family by helping him attain the grades needed to enter a top secondary school. But after becoming heavily involved in helping her son meet those tough demands – usually after a ten-hour day at her busy Beijing office - Ms Wang now views the school as a source of conflict in her house and a major drain on her own time. “Sometimes all I think about when I am at work is my son’s homework,” said Mrs Wang, who only provided her surname. Chinese social media is full of stories from parents sharing experiences of screaming and shouting their way through homework with their offspring. One post said: “When I returned from school when I was young, my parents watched TV while I did my homework. “Now when I get home from work... I still have to do homework.” Other parents told how homework-related stress had caused them serious health problems or driven them to the brink of madness. “Come homework time, the whole yard knows my howls,” one said. Opposition from parents stunted previous attempts by the government to soften China’s notoriously high-pressure education system. A programme dubbed ‘happy education’ was rolled out four years ago, but there was resistance to slashing levels of homework, which is said to be around three hours a day in China - twice the global average. Consequently, the 2013 reforms resulted in teachers facing pressure from both sides. They were being told by education officials to relax academic learning, but parents were telling them to push their children harder. The teachers responded by involving parents more in the challenging topics. However, things didn’t go to plan. “It has become a vicious cycle because students submitted homework that had been polished by their parents, so teachers assigned more difficult homework,” one teacher told local media. Some parents choose to send their children to one of a growing number of expensive after-school institutions where they can finish their homework before being picked up. But education chiefs are already fighting back against challenging workloads, with officials in the eastern Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, and also the northern Ningxia province, ruling that homework should not become “parental homework” or be set “above the level of the curriculum or the ability of the student”. Mrs Wang, meanwhile, has recently adopted a new daily regime. When she returns home from work, she instantly kicks off her shoes, makes a cup of green tea and changes into her pyjamas. She has decided that she won’t let her son’s academic frustrations affect the relationship she has with him, or her own work-life balance. Additional reporting by Christine Wei
12/10/2017 01:10 PM The Army's Has Over 100,000 'New' M4A1 Rifles - Here's What They Can Do
To date, the Army has completed more than 117,000 M4A1 upgrades on the way to the eventual transformation of more than 480,000 M4 rifles. As a result, it is entirely conceivable that the Army will explore new requirements and technologies for the M4A1 as time goes on. The service’s so-called M4 Product Improvement Program, or PIP, is a far-reaching initiative to upgrade the Army’s entire current inventory of M4 rifles into higher-tech, durable and more lethal M4A1 weapons, Army spokesman Pete Rowland, spokesman for PM Soldier Weapons, told Scout Warrior in an interview.

12/09/2017 11:48 PM Thousands march in Tel Aviv to protest against corruption and Netanyahu government
Thousands of Israelis protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday for the second consecutive week against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is under criminal investigation over allegations of abuse of office. Police estimated the number of demonstrators at about 10,000 and they followed last Saturday's demonstration, which was by far the largest of the recent weekly anti-corruption protests when an estimated 20,000 people participated. The protests have been sparked by corruption allegations against Netanyahu, who denies any wrongdoing. The four-term leader is suspected of involvement in two cases. The first involves receiving gifts from wealthy businessmen and the second involves negotiating a deal with a newspaper owner for better coverage in return for curbs on a rival daily. Israelis take part in a demonstration under the name "March of Shame" to protest against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Credit: Jack Guez/AFP If charged, he would come under heavy pressure to resign or could call an election to test whether he still had a mandate to govern. Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party said in a Facebook post that the protest was a left-wing demonstration. It called on all Israelis to back their prime minister as he defends Israel against international criticism following U.S. President Donald Trump's acceptance of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "Instead of uniting with all the people behind Jerusalem and showing the world a unified front, the left cannot contain itself and it prefers to create division," part of the statement said. Over weeks of demonstrations, protesters have identified themselves as supporting both left- and right-wing parties. On Saturday they held banners reading: "Neither left, nor right (we demand) integrity," "We are fed up with corrupt (politicians)" and "Sweep the corrupt away."
