Of General Interest

Diversity Visas

More here. 
The terrorist, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov was among the maximum 50,000 people allowed into the U.S. every year under the State Department diversity visa program.
Diversity visas draw people from nations generally hostile to the United States of America and its people and many who take advantage of the program are Muslims. Why would we want THEM to be HERE? 

Clearly, we need to host more Draw Mohammed contests around the nation to eliminate these vermin before they can kill honest, hard working people just out for a walk.

President Trump vowed to scrap the federal immigration program that allowed the New York City truck terrorist to enter the United States, and said "animals" like the suspect in Tuesday's attack belong in Guantanamo Bay.
Gitmo was designed from the outset to keep foreign terrorists outside of the territorial USA where (once in the country) they would be tried under the US Criminal Code (Title 18, etc.). So Saipov won't be going there. He'll be tried for homicide and whatever else the New York penal code has to offer.
President Trump wants people to be allowed into the US on a merit-based system, which makes sense. Under that system, Muslims and others would be allowed entry ONLY if they've earned it. It's a departure from the eight miserable Obama Years.

Toxic North Korea

On 1 November, The Asahi Shimbun Asia and Japan Watch reported that a North Korean military hospital in Chunghwa county in North Hwanghae Province was treating soldiers exposed to radiation from the nuclear tests, according to its source on North Korean affairs. The county borders Pyongyang.

The treatment is for soldiers who worked at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site and their families. More than a thousand members of a single regiment of the Korean People’s Army are deployed at Punggye-ri to dig tunnels and patrol the surroundings.

This is the first open source report of contamination and exposure to radiation of North Koreans at the nuclear test site since testing began in October 2006.

The report is from a single source and is not confirmed. It contained no information about the numbers of soldiers treated and whether family members also had been exposed to radiation and were being treated.

In late October, Radio Free Asia quoted Asia Press that outbreaks of typhoid fever have been occurring in Ryanggang Province, whose capital is Hyesan, on the Yalu River and the China border. Deaths from the disease reportedly have been increasing among older people.

This report has not been confirmed, but it is plausible. North Korea has been vulnerable to a variety of public health diseases that are usually associated with less developed countries. 

Cholera, typhus and typhoid outbreaks have been regular occurrences since at least the 1970s primarily because of foul water, poor sanitation and sewerage infrastructure, poor vaccination programs and neglect in boiling water before personal use.

Asia Press explained that the outbreaks in Ryanggang Province are from locals using untreated water from the Yalu River without boiling it. Public health has never been a national priority, except for brief periods during serious outbreaks. 

Mali

The first military operation by the forces from the Group of Five (G5) Sahel states, Operation Hawbi, was conducted on the borders of Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger.

A colonel from France’s anti-jihadist Operation Barkhane said that several hundred soldiers participated in a show of strength and presence. He commented that the French role is to provide advice and air and artillery support to Operation Hawbi.

 The area of the operation is not far from the village where four US military personnel were killed on 4 October. A French-language Belgian news service described the area as a hotbed for extremist groups.

The G5 Sahel force is a new regional counterterrorism force composed of units from Chad, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and Mauritania. The leaders of the five countries plan to field a force of up to 5 000 military, police and civilian personnel by March 2018.

The 5,000 will comprise two battalions each from Mali and Niger and one each from Burkina Faso, Chad and Mauritania.

On 30 October, the United States said it would pledge $60 million to support the force.
