    [all Nations: crushes the head of the IMF 666: declare war on Saudi Arabia! ] 07/23/2012 12:52 INDONESIA: The violence is worsened by the policy of local authorities, who instead of halting attacks, continues closing churches and prayer halls for the (alleged) lack of building permits, required for all construction in Indonesia (religious and non-religious). In the document published these days, the Christian Alliance of United North Sumatra denounces that since last May at least 20 house churches or prayer chapels have been closed down by Singkil regency officials. Among these, ten belonged to the Pakpak Dairi Christian Protestant Church (Gkppd) and four were Catholic.

Baghdad (AsiaNews/Agencies) - The toll so far from attacks in 13 Iraqi towns and cities stands at 91 dead and 172 wounded in what experts see as the worse string of attacks and shootings since the start of the year. The worst-hit place was Taji, a Sunni neighbourhood some 20km (12 miles) north of Baghdad, where at least 24 people were killed. A car bombing at a government building in the northern Baghdad district of Sadr City killed at least 12 officials and police.

    [Saudi Arabia punishes Iraq: because it no longer do pass the Salafist Al Qaeda in Syria. in IRAQ: Suicide attacks and car bombs hit 13 cities, 91 dead and 172 wounded] Other attacks were reported in Kirkuk, Dhuluiya (70 km north of Baghdad), Saadiya (Dyala, northeast of the capital), Khan Beni-Saad (Dyala), Tuz Khurmatu (Salah ad-Din) and Dibis (Kirkuk). On Sunday, bombings south of the capital killed at least 17. The attacks come days after Abu al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Bakr al-Baghdadi announced a new offensive to retake areas the organisation had retreated from before US soldiers left the country last December. "The majority of Sunnis in Iraq support al-Qaeda and are waiting for its return," he claimed in an audio message posted on militant websites. Still, no one has yet claimed responsibility for the latest attacks.

In view of the pattern of the violence, Iraqi security forces were the intended targets, analysts say. In fact, in a single incident, 15 soldiers were reportedly killed on a base in Dhuluiya. Since the US pullout, security in the country has been ensured by Iraqi forces. In the capital, police checkpoints were hit by car bombs, army bases were struck by mortar fire, and one policeman was even attacked in his home.

Beijing to establish military garrison to control South China Sea
The base will be built at Sansha (Paracel Islands). So far no details about the size and timing of the move have been released. Defence, escort and military operations will be run from the town. Forty-five members were named to run local affairs and represent local residents. In Vietnam, protest against Chinese "imperialism" continues.


Beijing (AsiaNews/Agencies) - China has approved the formal establishment of a military garrison on South China Sea islands at the centre of a dispute with Vietnam and Philippines, state media reported today. The command will be based in Sansha city on Woody Island in the Paracels, a city formed in June to administer the area. The Chinese population numbers only a few thousand, mostly fishermen. On Sunday, 45 legislators were named to the new city's congress. Although nothing is known about how many soldiers will be deployed and when, Beijing's decision to set up a garrison is bound to raise tensions in an area that is strategically important for world trade, and rich in raw materials as well as oil and natural gas.
The Central Military Commission (CMC) authorised the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Guangzhou Military Command to ''form a garrison command in'' Sansha city, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.
The troops would be ''responsible for managing the city's national defence mobilisation, military reserves and carrying out military operations". The command will be ''under the dual leadership of the Hainan provincial sub-command and the city's civilian leaders".
In Vietnam, protests against China's imperialist policy in the Asia-Pacific region continue.  About 150 Vietnamese protesters marched through Hanoi yesterday to assert Vietnamese claims over the Spratly and Paracel islands.
The demonstrators, including parents with toddlers and seniors, defied police requests to disperse and circumvented barricades aimed at preventing access to a square where the Chinese embassy is located.
The islands in the South China Sea are potentially rich in oil and are claimed by China, Vietnam, Brunei, Taiwan, Philippines and Malaysia. Attempts by some of them to claim one or more atolls have led to frictions.
The Philippines and Vietnam have slammed Beijing's increased aggressiveness in asserting its sovereignty. In the recent past, incidents have occurred involving Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese fishing boats.
Manila and Hanoi have sought support in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) against China. However, a recent ASEAN meeting in Cambodia did not produce any results as member states failed to come up with a joint position against Beijing.
The opposition of the host nation was crucial. Phnom Penh's stance is very much related to its close economic ties to Beijing.
China's hegemonic aims have also raised concerns in the United States, which has beefed up its naval presence in the Pacific.

Pechino crea una guarnigione militare per controllare il mar Cinese meridionale
La base sorgerà a Sansha (Paracel), ma non si conoscono i dettagli sui tempi di realizzazione e il numero di truppe dislocate. Il comando dovrà gestire la difesa, le scorte e coordinare le operazioni militari. Ieri i cinesi residenti hanno eletto 45 parlamentari, responsabili dell’amministrazione locale. Continuano le proteste dei vietnamiti contro “l’imperialismo” del governo di Pechino.


Pechino (AsiaNews/Agenzie) - Le autorità di Pechino hanno approvato l'istallazione di una guarnigione militare sulle Paracels, gruppo di isole situate nel mar Cinese meridionale, al centro di un'aspra contesa con Vietnam e Filippine. È quanto confermano oggi i media ufficiali di Stato, secondo cui la base verrà eretta a Sansha, cittadina dell'isola di Woody (Paracel) formata nel giugno scorso per agevolare l'amministrazione dell'area. Ieri la popolazione residente di nazionalità cinese (poco più di un migliaio di persone, in maggioranza pescatori) ha inoltre eletto 45 parlamentari, chiamati a governare l'assemblea della neonata cittadina. La scelta di formare un avamposto militare nella zona - anche se non vi sono dettagli sul numero di soldati utilizzati e la tempistica - è destinato ad acuire le tensioni in un'area strategica per il commercio internazionale e ricca di materie prime, petrolio e gas naturali.
L'agenzia ufficiale Xinhua riferisce che la Commissione militare centrale (Cmc) ha dato il via libera al distaccamento militare del People's Liberation Army (Pla) nel Guangzhou, per la "formazione di una guarnigione militare" a Sansha. Le truppe saranno "responsabili nella gestione della difesa" della città, oltre che "dell'approvvigionamento delle scorte" e del coordinamento delle "operazioni militari". La responsabilità gestionale della struttura è affidata in via congiunta "al sotto-comando provinciale dell'Hainan e alla leadership civile della città".
Nel frattempo in Vietnam continuano le proteste dei cittadini contro la politica "imperialista" cinese nella regione Asia-Pacifico. Ieri ad Hanoi circa 150 manifestanti hanno marciato lungo le vie della capitale, per rivendicare i diritti vietnamiti sulle Spratly e le Paracel. I dimostranti, tra cui molte famiglie con figli piccoli e anziani al seguito, hanno sfidato gli ordini della polizia e hanno raggiunto le barricate fatte innalzare dal governo, per impedire ogni accesso alla piazza in cui è situata l'ambasciata cinese.
L'arcipelago nel mar Cinese meridionale, potenzialmente ricco di giacimenti petroliferi sottomarini, è conteso da Cina, Vietnam, Brunei, Taiwan, Filippine e Malaysia e da tempo i tentativi di impossessarsi di un atollo o di un altro producono frizioni fra i vari Paesi. Filippine e Vietnam accusano Pechino di essere sempre più aggressiva nel rivendicare la sovranità sull'arcipelago (cfr. AsiaNews 04/07/2012 Pechino contro tutti. La Cina sempre più dura in politica estera). Nelle scorse settimane si sono verificati scontri fra pescherecci filippini, vietnamiti e cinesi.
Manila e Hanoi cercano alleati nell'Asean (Associazione dei Paesi del sud est asiatico) per andare contro la Cina. Tuttavia, il recente raduno dell'organismo in Cambogia si è concluso con un nulla di fatto, con i Paesi membri incapaci fino all'ultimo di stilare una mozione comune contro Pechino. Decisiva l'opposizione del governo ospitante; sulla scelta di Phnom Penh ha pesato lo stretto legame economico che unisce Cina e Cambogia. (cfr. AsiaNews14/07/2012 Le controversie sulle isole del Mar cinese meridionale lasciano l'Asean senza parola). Le mire egemoniche della Cina preoccupano anche gli Stati Uniti che hanno accresciuto la loro presenza navale nel Pacifico.
