Turkey and Azerbaijan strengthen anti-Russian ties with military exercises

Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a very bloody war that ended in 1994 with Armenia gaining control of Nagorno-Karabakh, a region in the middle of Azerbaijan. And relations between Armenia and Turkey have been extremely bitter over the charges, denied by Turkey, that Turkey perpetrated a genocide on Armenians in 1915. Add to that, Armenia has good relations with Russia, a centuries-old historic enemy of Turkey (Ottoman Empire). So it's not surprising that Turkey and Azerbaijan carried out joint exercises between July 12 and 28. The major purpose of the Turkey-Azerbaijan military exercises is to neutralize Armenia's military cooperation with Russia.

Nagorno-Karabakh remains a simmering open wound in relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia, and hostilities could resume at any time, with Russia and Turkey joining in. Jamestown

Dozens of Pakistan terrorists freed from jail in terrorist attack

More than 100 terrorist militants attacked a large prison in northwest Pakistan late on Monday evening. The objective was to free some 250 convicted terrorists, but apparently only 25-40 were freed. The attack overwhelmed the local police, who faced superior weaponry of the militants. The attack was launched by TTP (the Pakistani Taliban) and the associated group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ). I've written a number of times about LeJ, the group that has vowed that "Our mission [in Pakistan] is the abolition of this impure sect and people, the Shias and the Shia Hazaras, from every city, every village, every nook and corner of Pakistan," and have followed through by blowing up mosques and schools containing Shias, killing hundreds of innocent women and children. This not the first time when militants have broken other convicted terrorists out of jail. Nearly 400 prisoners including militants had escaped on Aril 15, 2012 from Bannu Jail after an attack by insurgents armed with guns, grenades and rockets. Dawn (Pakistan) and McClatchy

Bankrupt Detroit to seek federal bailout through Obamacare

Detroit, which filed for bankruptcy July 18, 2013, is pursuing a plan to shift retirees from city-run health coverage to exchanges under the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. If implemented in full, this would essentially be a $5.7 billion federal bailout of Detroit, eliminating the amount it owes on retiree health care costs. Many other bankrupt or near-bankrupt localities, such as Chicago, Sheboygan County, Wis., and Stockton, Calif., are going to be watching this Detroit plan carefully, to see if they can get away with the same thing.
