I hope this doesn't violate the 20-year rule-- if it does my sincere apologies.
I was recently reading an article in the Washington Examiner, that, among other things, claimed that US involvement in the coup was much less than traditionally-believed and that Kermit Roosevelt's perceived role is, to a large extent, embellished. It also claims that evidence suggests there was a greater degree of support for the coup than previously-believed. I was wondering if any of these claims are sustained by the new evidence, or if in general the documents released in 2017 have changed our understanding of the historical event or anything else about Iran's 20th-century history.
Thanks in advance! :)
I remember watching this show around 5-10 years ago, it was either on cable or Netflix. There was a white male host, and there was an episode on the Georgia-Tennessee border dispute. I hope that’s enough info... I’d really like to re-watch this
The United States' State Department has released its annual report on Kosovo. They mention the progress of Kosovo in many areas, domestic and diplomatic. They only mention the term tariff once, in the context of Lista Srpska boycotting the parliament because of it. KFOR is only mentioned when they mention its technical role on Kosovo (assisting FSK, keeping peace and stability, etc). From the main politicians, they mention Thaci (that he is president), Haradinaj (that he resigned) and Kadri Veseli (that he called a journalist and tried to force him to write in favor of PDK). Below I summarize the key points from the report. You can read the full report by following this link.
"Ethnic minorities’ representation in the Assembly was more than proportionate to their share of the population, but political parties representing ethnic minorities criticized majority parties for not consulting them on important issues. Srpska List parliamentarians have essentially boycotted participation in Assembly proceedings since November 2018, when the country imposed tariffs on products from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina."
The 6 Turks who got expelled by AKI and the President
"On June 24, the Assembly adopted the final report of its investigative committee into the March 2018 refoulement of six Turkish citizens legally residing in Kosovo. The committee’s report highlighted serious rule of law violations including the refoulement of one man who was not identified in the extradition request. The Assembly published its report despite months of political intimidation and interference."
"The country held early parliamentary elections on October 6, and government-formation discussions were ongoing at the end of the year. International and independent observers evaluated the [electoral] process as generally free and fair. The campaign was marked, however, by a pattern of intimidation within Kosovo-Serb communities. Some Kosovo Serbs reported being pressured not to support parties other than Srpska List, a party closely aligned with the Serbian government."
"NGOs and international organizations identified numerous alleged failures by the judicial system to prosecute corruption, noting that very few cases brought against senior officials resulted in indictments. (...) During the year, in at least... keep reading on reddit ➡
As far as I know state and country are synonyms and a US state and European country are usually about the same size so I'm trying to make a connection I suppose
I think I heard about this on the Edumacation podcast. The name of the killer was the first letter of a group of states or the abbreviation of them. I think they said some college kids were doing it.
For roleplaying purposes, I have compiled a list of ambassadors interacting with the United States for use in posts.
If you wish to interact with the United States on an official basis and are not listed below, please post below with the name of the ambassador TO your country (please try to use one appointed by Kennedy), and FROM your country.
A Wikipedia search along the lines of "Ambassadors of the X to Y" should be enough to get your info.
###Department of State
The State Department's duties include implementing the foreign policy of the United States, operating the nation's diplomatic missions abroad, negotiating treaties and agreements with foreign entities, and representing the United States at the United Nations. It is led by the Secretary of State, a member of the Cabinet who is nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. In addition to administering the Department, the Secretary of State serves as the nation's chief diplomat and representative abroad. The Secretary of State is the first Cabinet official in the order of precedence and in the presidential line of succession, after the Vice President of the United States, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and President pro tempore of the Senate.
