Little US media attention is being paid to claims from a UN commission and Russia that Syrian rebels, not government soldiers under President Bashar al-Assad’s control, were responsible for chemical weapons attacks on August 21 that killed over 300 Syrians.

Fifth drone strike in less than two weeks in Yemen - Report

A US drone strike killed seven suspected Al-Qaeda militants in Yemen. The operation followed the official announcement of Yemeni officials that Al Qaeda plans to seize two major oil and gas export terminals and a provincial capital. Arab nations remain on high alert following threats of a terror attack, which prompted Washington to shut down 19 diplomatic facilities in the Middle East and North Africa. It was the fifth drone strike in less than two weeks in Yemen, where Al-Qaeda is rapidly gaining power. The Voice of Russia discussed the revival of US drone program and the current terrorist threat in the region with Sama'a Al-Hamdani, a Yemeni political analyst.

What prompted the revival of the drone program in Yemen?
I think that is the question that all of us wants to know the answer to. In Yemen on the ground we are not really sure what is going on. All we know is that the attack was picked up by the US and that a state of alarm happened in the country and then all over sudden we had 3 drone strikes 3 days in a row. Today is Eid. Many families are celebrating. The last thing they want to think about is “are we going to be droned tonight”. The problem is the Yemeni government is not really talking to the people and we are not sure what is going on.

Nigerian Lawmakers Are Highest Paid worldwide: See Report - The Economist

The jumbo salary being paid Nigerian legislators, which ranked the highest in the world, according to a new study, has attracted sharp criticisms from across the country, including from economists and lawyers.

“This democracy is satanic. We have to review this democracy. The cost of maintaining the lawmakers is outrageous. What they are taking is too much,” said Nigerian professor
This is even as the minimum wage in Nigeria is among the very least in the world. The standard of living for the average Nigerian is getting worse, but all those holding political positions are living large...

A report by The Economist revealed that Nigerian federal legislators with a basic salary of $189,500 (N30.6m) per annum were the highest paid lawmakers in the world.

**Investment in Nigeria tops African major economies of South Africa, Ghana $3.295 and Egypt put together.

A new Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) report released by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) yesterday has put Nigeria’s FDI inflows ahead of other African countries.

The UNCTAD World Investment Report 2013 subtitled: “Global Value Chains: Investment and Trade for Development,” disclosed that Nigeria retained its position as Africa’s number one destination for FDIs for the second time in two years with FDI inflows of $7.03 billion in 2012. This, it observed, was in spite of the fact that FDI inflows into the country actually fell from $8.9 billion in 2011 to $7 billion last year.

CIA and US special forces secretly training Syrian rebels - report

The CIA and US special forces have been secretly training Syrian rebels since last year at bases in Jordan and Turkey, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

The Free Syrian Army was involved in two-week training programmes that included work with anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, a US official and a Syrian rebel commander told the Times.
White House spokesman Jay Carney would not comment on the report and also declined to outline what weapons the US could provide to the rebels, except to say "I cannot inventory for you all the elements of that assistance."
"The important point here is that, because of the actions we have seen the Assad regime take, we have decided to increase both the scope and scale of our assistance to the opposition, and we've been very clear about that over the last weeks and months," he said.

UN prepares report: Infinite usage of drones changes the "laws of war"

Download audio file

President Jonathan's Report Card For Nigeria - UK Guardian

The piece sums up President Goodluck Jonathan's 3 years in office as president of Nigeria, written by UK Guardian's Remi Adekoya. See it below...
Nigerians had no rational reason to believe their lives would improve after Goodluck Jonathan became president three years ago this week. The list of promises their rulers have broken is so long it would make a virgin cynical. But then Nigerians can be stubbornly optimistic.
When Jonathan first appeared on the political scene in 2007, when Nigeria's then president, Olusegun Obasanjo, announced him as the running-mate of his party's next presidential candidate, Musa Yar'Adua, many mythologised the good fortune that seemed linked to Jonathan's first name. And so, when Yar'Adua died in 2010 from heart disease and Jonathan was handed the most coveted job in Nigeria, many voters believed good luck had come to Nigeria. Were they right?

China on Wednesday accused the United States of sowing discord between China and its neighbours after the Pentagon said Beijing is using espionage to fuel its military modernisation, branding Washington the "real hacking empire".
The latest salvo came a day after China's foreign ministry dismissed as groundless a Pentagon report which accused China for the first time of trying to break into U.S. defense computer networks.
The Pentagon also cited progress in Beijing's effort to develop advanced-technology stealth aircraft and build an aircraft carrier fleet to project power further offshore.
