 1900年に米国の土木技術者が100年後を予想した。
 そのうちあたったもの、はずれたものが何例か紹介されている。

 はずれたものを含めてスゴイぞ。

 イランで、新たに核科学者が爆殺された。一昨年の2人(このほか1人が負傷)に次いで3人目だ。
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-16501566
 イラン政府が主張しているように、米国からイスラエルの諜報機関の仕業である可能性が高い。
 それにしても、諜報機関をいまだに持っていない我が属国日本!

<太田>

 マルウェア攻撃や軍事基地爆破に加えて核科学者爆殺と来たもんだ。ようやるよ。↓

 ・・・It comes on top of a sophisticated cyber sabotage programme and two mysterious explosions at Iranian military bases, one of which in November killed the general known as 'the godfather' of Iran's ballistic missile programme.・・・

 テヘランでのこれまでの4つの爆殺事件(未遂一件を含む)の位置関係が分かる地図がついてるよ。↓

 今回の爆殺事件の直前、イスラエル軍トップが議会証言でイミシンな証言をしているところを見ると、やっぱ、米国じゃなくってイスラエルの所業っぽいね。↓

 ・・・On Tuesday, the head of the Israeli Defence Force, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz was quoted as telling a parliamentary panel that 2012 would be a "critical year" for Iran in which it would be subject to "unnatural" events.・・・

 それでは、その他の記事の紹介です。

 NYタイムスに、米西戦争後の米国によるキューバのグアンタナモ「領有」がいかに非道なことであったかを指摘し、そのキューバへの返還を訴えるコラムが載ったぞ。↓

 ・・・imagine that at the end of the American Revolution the French had decided to remain here. Imagine that the French had refused to allow Washington and his army to attend the armistice at Yorktown. Imagine that they had denied the Continental Congress a seat at the Treaty of Paris, prohibited expropriation of Tory property, occupied New York Harbor, dispatched troops to quash Shays’ and other rebellions and then immigrated to the colonies in droves, snatching up the most valuable land.
  Such is the context in which the United States came to occupy Guantanamo. It is a history excluded from American textbooks and neglected in the debates over terrorism, international law and the reach of executive power. But it is a history known in Cuba (where it motivated the 1959 revolution) and throughout Latin America. It explains why Guantanamo remains a glaring symbol of hypocrisy around the world. We need not even speak of the last decade. ・・・

 ハンガリー政府が起草した新憲法は文字通りのファシスト憲法なりと糾弾するコラムだ。ハンガリーはEU追放へ? だけど、これこそ欧州の本質なんだわさ。↓

 ・・・ On Monday, the government of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, leader of the highly conservative Fidesz party, introduced its controversial new constitution allowing itself discretionary authority over the media, courts, the central bank and even personal conscience.
 <権力分立なし、報道の自由も信教の自由もなし、堕胎や同性婚は禁止、他国に住むハンガリー系人にハンガリー国籍付与。↓>
 There is to be no division of powers in Hungary between the executive, legislative and judiciary; no guaranteed freedom of the press, nor judicial impartiality; no freedom of worship. Abortion and same-sex marriages are outlawed. And echoing other horrific moments from Europe’s dark past, Orban proposes to offer ethnic Hungarians living in neighboring countries Hungarian citizenship, rather as Hitler did for ethnic Germans in Poland and Czechoslovakia.・・・
 <要するに、啓蒙主義的諸価値の全面否定。↓>
 Altogether, Enlightenment values are not the reason why the West has advanced so far so fast for the last two centuries and more; rather, they are why the West’s economies are in crisis and its societies are fragmenting.・・・
 <南アの与党のANCも同じ方向へ。↓>
 This is very much the position of South African President Jacob Zuma’s faction in the African National Congress (ANC) as the party celebrates its 100th anniversary. Once one of the great forces in the African liberation struggle・・・

 パキスタン文民政府は軍部と全面対決へ?↓

 Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani fired his defense secretary on Wednesday, just hours after the nation's military warned that Mr. Gilani's recent attacks on another official, army chief Gen. Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, could have "grievous consequences."
 <軍人OBの国防相を解任して後任に軍人歴のない人物を任命。↓>
 Mr. Gilani named a career civil servant, cabinet secretary Nargis Sethi, to succeed his military-allied defense chief, retired Lt. Gen. Naeem Khalid Lodhi・・・

 1位(コラム#5193)と認定されたり3位と認定されたり↓、いずれにせよ、浙江大学って中共じゃ超一流なのね。↓

 「・・・一流大学26校中、競争力ランキングトップ5は順次、北京大学、清華、浙江大学、復旦大学、上海交通大学だった。・・・」

 香港住民の気持ちは、中共から離れるばかりなんだって。
 今頃そう思ったって遅すぎらい。↓

 ・・・The survey, conducted last month by the University of Hong Kong, found that the number of respondents who view themselves as Hong Kongers is more than double the number who see themselves as Chinese and that bonds of shared identity with the mainland have grown weaker since Britain relinquished control in 1997.・・・
 ・・・identification with China increased somewhat after the 1997 handover but began to decline after peaking in 2008 when Beijing hosted the Olympic Games. Just 34 percent of those surveyed last month identified themselves as primarily Chinese, and 63 percent emphasized their Hong Kong identity. ・・・
