Russia voices fear of war after Donald Trump's missile threat on Syria 13.4.2018 DNA: Opinion
US President Donald Trump and his national security aides on Thursday discussed U.S. options on Syria, where he has threatened missile strikes in response to a suspected poison gas attack, as a Russian envoy voiced fears of wider conflict between Washington and Moscow. Worries about a confrontation between Russia, Syria's big ally, and the West have been running high since Trump said on Wednesday that missiles "will be coming" in response to the attack in the Syrian town of Douma on April 7, and lambasted Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Trump tempered those remarks on Thursday and even as he consulted allies such and Britain and France, who could join in any U.S.-led strikes on Syria, there were signs of efforts to prevent the crisis from spiraling out of control. "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" Trump wrote on Twitter, raising the prospect that an attack might not be as imminent as he seemed to suggest the day ...

Russian military to closely monitor US naval movements towards Syria 11.4.2018 DNA: India
The Russian military said on Wednesday it was closely watching the situation around Syria and was aware of the movements of a US naval strike force headed for the Gulf. The US Navy said on Tuesday that the strike group, headed by the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, would set sail for the Middle East and Europe on Wednesday. The Russian military said the U.S. strike force was due to arrive in the Middle East at the start of May. "We are attentively tracking the situation unfolding around Syria and in the whole region," the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement. It also reacted to a warning of imminent military action in Syria from US President Donald Trump. "Instead of talking about the coalition's readiness to fire missiles at Syria, the United States would do better to rebuild the destroyed city (of Raqqa) and provide wide-ranging help to its suffering population," the ministry said in a statement. It repeated its assertion that a suspected chemical weapons attack carried out in the Syrian ...

Syria War: Braced for air strikes, airlines re-route flights 11.4.2018 DNA: Top News
Some major airlines were re-routing flights on Wednesday after Europe's air traffic control agency warned aircraft flying in the eastern Mediterranean to exercise caution due to possible air strikes on Syria. Eurocontrol said in a notification published on Tuesday afternoon that air-to-ground and cruise missiles could be used over the following 72 hours and there was a possibility of intermittent disruption to radio navigation equipment. US President Donald Trump and Western allies are discussing possible military action to punish Syria's President Bashar Assad for a suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on a rebel-held town that had long held out against government forces. A spokeswoman for Air France said the airline had changed some flights paths following the warning, including for Beirut and Tel Aviv flights, while budget airline easyJet said it would also re-route flights from Tel Aviv.

British warship to help police to regulate UN sanctions imposed on North Korea 11.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
A British warship "changed its deployment" and arrived in Japan on Wednesday to join efforts to police UN sanctions imposed on North Korea over its nuclear and missile programmes. The Royal Navy frigate HMS Sutherland arrived at Yokosuka, the headquarters of Japan's Maritime Defence Force fleet and home port of the US Seventh Fleet's carrier strike group. It "will be contributing to the international efforts to monitor prohibited trade at sea by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), which provides a major source of funding for its illegal nuclear programme," the Ministry of Defence said in a statement, referring to North Korea by its official name. The Sutherland arrived as the two Koreas prepare for a summit this month and US President Donald Trump readies to meet North Korea leader Kim Jong Un as early as May. "It's about pressure. She is part of an international message that is going to North Korea and for the United Kingdom to see fit to send one of its frigates, to change its deployment ...

NASA will now study how tiny sea creatures affect Earth's climate 11.4.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
In a first, NASA is conducting a study of the world's largest phytoplankton bloom in the North Atlantic to see how the tiny sea critters influence the climate in every season. The North Atlantic Aerosols and Marine Ecosystems Study (NAAMES) mission began its fourth and final deployment, which will study how phytoplanktons give rise to small organic particles that leave the ocean and end up in the atmosphere, ultimately influencing clouds and climate. It is the first research mission to conduct an integrated study of all four distinct phases of the world's largest phytoplankton bloom. "Most scientists studying the bloom head to sea during its climax in late spring and early summer. We did that, but we also went out during the other seasons to fully capture the minimum and transitions of the bloom," said Rich Moore, Deputy Project Scientist at NAAMES. This thoroughness pays off as our ship-based scientists use these data to fully describe the entirety of the plankton bust/boom cycle," Moore said. "No one ...

Former Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju's baggage left at Delhi airport 11.4.2018 DNA: Top News
The baggage of former Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, who took an Air India flight to Vijayawada, was on Tuesday left at the airport here as it could not be loaded in the aircraft after security screening, according to officials. A Delhi airport spokesperson said the bag was checked in around "12 minutes before scheduled departure of Air India's Delhi-Visakhapatnam flight AI 451". Since the check in baggage of Raju had to go through regulated security screening, it could not be loaded at the aircraft, he said in a statement. An Air India official said the former minister's baggage could not reach the aircraft on time because of slow movement of baggage belt at the Delhi airport. Later, the baggage was taken on an IndiGo flight to Vijaywada which left some 45 minutes after the Air India flight, the official added. TDP leader Raju, who served as Civil Aviation Minister for more than three years, had put in his papers last month over his party's demand for special status to Andhra ...

On choppy waters: Why USS Theodore Roosevelt's presence in South China Sea will increase tension 10.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
In a span of 20 minutes, 20 F-18 fighter jets took off and landed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier, in a powerful display of military precision and efficiency. The nuclear-powered warship, leading a carrier strike group, was conducting what the US military called routine training in the disputed South China Sea on Tuesday, headed for a port call in the Philippines, a defence treaty ally. The United States is not alone in carrying out naval patrols in the strategic waterway, where Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies operate, possibly increasing tensions and risking accidents at sea. "We have seen Chinese ships around us," Rear Admiral Steve Koehler, the strike group commander, told a small group of reporters on board the three-decade-old carrier. "They are one of the navies that operate in the South China Sea but I would tell you that we have seen nothing but professional work out of the ships we have encountered." Navies in the western Pacific, including China and nine ...
