    Lebanon in quagmire


    A large explosion rocked the Lebanese capital, Beirut, leaving many casualties.
    this blast kills Sunni ex-minister Mohamad Chatah ,among many casualties; he was former Lebanese Finance Minister .
    Unfortunately the Syrian civil war will inevitably envenom and worsen sectarian tensions not only in Syria and Lebanon but in the whole middle east .
    The Lebanese Shia militant movement Hezbollah has its fighters in Syria to back the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
    many Syrian rebel groups are controlled by the Sunni Muslim al-Qaeda network.

    Egypt regression


    At least one person has been killed and several others wounded in a bomb attack near a passenger bus in Cairo.
    The police said it was just the improvised bomb not sophisticated one ,the Egyptian Health Ministry said the wounded had mild to moderate injuries.
    The police forces has said they have defused another bomb in the same area ,allegedly put in the area by religious group sympathizing with brotherhood.
    Just two days ago the Ansar Beit al-Maqdis militant group based in the Sinai Peninsula claimed responsibility for a deadly car bomb attack in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, where 16 people, mostly policemen, were killed and many others were injured.
    These attacks cast a dark shadow over political future of Egypt ;since the coup d’état of generals against the first president elected democratically in Egypt .
    As for the Muslim Brotherhood they denied energetically the accusations, saying that the group is committed to peaceful demonstrations ;regardless of what generals and their medias said .

    The PussyRiot is seen in western media as a wind of freedom blowing in Russian dictatorial system ,because Russia as they say lacks free judiciary system, independent mass media, honest and transparent elections, political opposition and vibrant civil society, not to mention the complete fusion and marriage between the institutions of state and church.
    But many outside western sphere do not understand why there is a frantic support of Pussyriot in western media an civil society ,but nothing or little when it comes to defend Edward Snowden and Julian Assange .

    South Soudan


    South Soudan is in real quagmire,this youngest country in the world is on the brink of civil war ,in order to avoid this another tragedy for Africa , South Sudanese President Salva Kiir says he is committed to beginning negotiations with rebel leader and his former Vice President Riek Machar ; but without preconditions as soon as his counterpart is willing for compromise ; in order to put the country in order .
    But the date of these talks between the two sides is not known yet ;but the first condition to start talks is known ; Machar said that negotiations would be held if his comrades who are under detention were released.

    Clashes broke out near the capital, Juba, between government troops and forces loyal to the former vice president on December 15. Hundreds of people have been killed since ;and many had been displaced ,not to mention wounded people ; humanitarian crisis in South Sudan is looming dangerously ,if steps are not taken to stop this civil war from spreading .
    South Sudan is rich of oil but without north Sudan this oil will not be profitable either for south Sudan or (north) Sudan ,as the pipeline pass through Sudan to reach the coast and be exported ,by the way china has refused to built pipeline in south Sudan to make it independent from Sudan when it comes to export oil .

    Syria is bleeding


    The head of Syria's main opposition group has said he will attend planned peace talks in Geneva in January aimed at ending the civil war.but their gaol is to get red of bachar bloody regime ,supported by Iran and Russia ,The Syrian government has also said it would attend but would not negotiate a handover of power to terrorists armed and supported by Saudi arabia and Qatar,and syrian regim will not accept Rebel groups involved in the fighting to take part.
    the Syrian government confirmed it would attend the talks, but dismissed the opposition demand that Mr Assad should play no role in any transition .

    the civil war is getting worse as surface-to-surface missile fell on the jihadist-controlled northern city of Raqa overnight and more than 100,000 people have died in the violence since peaceful protests against Mr Assad began in March 2011.

    it is reported that nine million people have been driven from their homes.
