End of WeDG

Hi all,
Due to well over two years of a clear lack of interest in this board, I will be closing it when the hosting is up next month (24 Aug). I see no reason to continue this with the lack of readership and participation.

It's been a wonderful 27+ years, with tons of ups and downs, but with all the excellent resources available to us online via Telegram, YouTube and other platforms - we've outgrown our purpose. I do not believe any huge modification/improvements to the site would help, plus that has always been way beyond my knowledge/skill set.

Y'all know how to reach me.

    Spain does not see 'long-term' Libya intervention: FM


    Spain does not see the international intervention in Libya as being a long-term operation, Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez said Sunday.

    "It's a case of operations that are going to take place at any moment depending on the needs and circumstances but of course it is not a question of a long-term (operation)," Jimenez told reporters at a meeting of the ruling Socialist Party in Palencia in northern Spain.

    She said she hoped the coalition would "put a brake on the violence" that Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi was exercising "against the citizens of his country," noting that it was composed not only of NATO members but some Arab countries as well.

    Jimenez said this weekend that Spain would take part in military operations against Libya from Sunday with four F-18 fighter aircraft, an in-flight refuelling tanker, a frigate and a submarine.

      MARJAYOUN: Spanish Foreign Minister Trinidad Jimenez said Thursday that the current regional status quo is now more conducive to achieving peace in the Middle East.

      “The time is right to push the peace talks forward toward the right path, amid transitions to democracy in the region,” said Jimenez during her visit to the Spanish UNIFIL contingent in the southern Lebanese village of Blat.


      Jimenez also said that there would be a decisive decision during the upcoming Middle East diplomatic Quartet meeting on April 15 which will gather United Nations, U.S., European Union and Russian officials in Paris in mediating the peace process in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

        King Abdullah, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, reiterated Monday the Kingdom’s “absolute rejection of any interference in its internal affairs”.

        The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques cited the statement from the 118th session of the GCC Ministerial Council in reaffirming the “total rejection of GCC states of any foreign attempt to interfere in their affairs, and their determination to deal firmly with any incitement to factional sympathies, promotion of divisions between the people of member states, and threats to security”.

        “Threats to harm the security of any member state are regarded as harming the security of all GCC states,” he said.

        King Abdullah lauded the “wisdom, loyalty and cohesion of the Kingdom with its leadership in good times and bad” since the country’s unification by the late King Abdul Aziz.

        “It is, then, only to be expected that there would be no response to the attempts of the traiters because they know the objectives behind those false and wicked calls which have no relation to Islamic teachings,” King Abdullah said.

        In that regard, the Cabinet reaffirmed its response to Bahrain’s request for support. Abdul Aziz Khoja, Minister of Culture and Information, said in a statement to SPA after the meeting that the King went on to brief ministers on his contacts of the past week concerning regional and international developments, including telephone calls from King Juan Carlos of Spain and Mauritanian President Muhammad Wald Abdul Aziz.

              Wondering who the Arab coalition countries are with NATO members...and wondering why Spain's king is conferring with the King's of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain at such a time as this!!...and why the head of the UN met with the Spanish king just prior to the troops going into Libya. And why the King was celebrsting with the Arabs over victory in Kuwait the end of Feb. when he wasn't involved in the Gullf War.
