Seattle held 'segregated' training session on 'undoing whiteness,' encouraged staffers to forfeit 'guaranteed physical safety'
[FoxNews] The City of Seattle held a racially segregated employee training session aimed at White staffers and instructing them on "undoing your own whiteness" in order to be held accountable by people of color, according to documents obtained by a public records request.

The session took place on June 12, as protesters took part in the so-called "Capitol Hill Organized Protest" in the Capitol Hill district.

One handout distributed in the session reportedly declared how "racism is not our fault but we are responsible." Another said White staffers must give up "the land" and their "guaranteed physical safety" in order to be an "accomplice" for racial justice.

Christopher F. Rufo, an editor for City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, said he filed a public records request regarding the training session. On Monday, he published copies of the materials distributed to employees in the session on his Twitter account.



According to his screenshots, the Office of Civil Rights hosted a two-and-a-half-hour "Training on Internalized Racial Superiority for White People."

In the email invitation to the event, the office asked "city employees who identify as white to join this training to learn, reflect, challenge ourselves, and build skills and relationships that help us show up more fully as allies and accomplices for racial justice."

"We’ll examine our complicity in the system of white supremacy — how we internalize and reinforce it — and begin to cultivate practices that enable us to interrupt racism in ways to be accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) folks within our community," the email invitation said.

A two-column chart also listed characteristics that defined "Internalized Racial Oppression."

"Internalized Racial Superiority," was defined by perfectionism, individualism, imposition, arrogance, paternalism, silence, intellectualization, control, violence, comfort, appropriation, cognitive dissonance, objectivity and "anti-blackness."

Afghanistan
Suicide Bomber Targets Kandahar’s Shah Wali Kot Police HQ
[ToloNews] At least three coppers were killed, and 18 others were maimed, in a suicide kaboom on police HQ in Kandahar on Wednesday morning, a security source said.

The incident happened at 4:00 am in Shah Wali Kot district, as a suicide boom-mobileer detonated his explosives near the police HQ, the source said.

The district governor's compound is also close to the police HQ, according to the source.

Bahir Ahmad, a front man for the provincial governor, said: "We had information about a possible attack on police HQ and the forces were prepared. The jacket wallah was shot before he reached his target but his explosives detonated."

Three coppers were killed in the attack and 14 others, including civilians, were maimed, he said.

No group including the Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
has grabbed credit for the attack.
The Jerusalem Post adds:
"At around 4 a.m., a jacket wallah driving a large (Afghan security force) truck came under fire from security forces before reaching his goal, but detonated explosives near police headquarters and the governor's residential complex," the governor's front man, Bahir Ahmad Ahamdi, said.

The police headquarters and governor's compound suffered severe damage.

The Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
grabbed credit, saying in a statement that the police headquarters had been used as a military hub for security force operations against the Islamist krazed killers.

Ghazni’s Deh Yak District Police Chief Killed in Blast
[ToloNews] Ghazni's Deh Yak district police chief, Habibullah, was killed in a roadside mine blast on Wednesday morning, said the office of the provincial governor in a statement.

The incident happened as Habibullah was on the way to support security forces in a fight with the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
in the district and his vehicle struck a roadside mine, it said.
If he weren’t on his way to fight the Taliban, he would not have hit the IED and been kilked. Therefore it’s the Taliban’s fault — that’s traditional Muslim logic.
The Taliban has attacked several security checkpoints in the district and clashed with security forces, the statement said.

The Taliban recently increased their attacks on Afghan cops.

On Tuesday, Mir Zaman, the police commander in Kuz Kunar district in Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..
, was killed when a jacket wallah detonated his vehicle in the district market.

Two of the commander's guards were also killed in the incident, said Attaullah Khogyani, the Nangarhar governor's front man.

According to Khogyani ten others were maimed in the incident.

Arabia
Ansarallah forces continue march towards strategic city in northern Yemen
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Ansarallah forces resumed their offensive inside the Marib Governorate on Monday, as their troops inched closer to the strategic administrative capital, which is under the control of the Saudi-backed Islah forces.

According to reports on Monday, the Ansarallah forces managed to capture the Halhalan Valley inside the contested Majzar District of the Marib Governorate.

Furthermore, the Ansarallah forces also captured several points inside the Midghal District after a fierce battle with the Islah fighters.

For the Islah forces, losing the administrative capital of Marib would be devastating, especially since they lost the neighboring al-Jawf Governorate earlier this year.

As of now, it looks like the Ansarallah forces are attempting to encircle Marib city, which is similar to their battle strategy to capture the administrative capital of al-Jawf.

New images show the scale of the destruction from the explosion at Iran's Natanz nuclear facility on July 2

Three-quarters of Natanz centrifuge assembly hall destroyed - nuke experts

[Jpost] Security expert David Albright told the ’Post’ that some of the damage is likely irreparable.

Nearly three quarters of Iran's main centrifuge assembly hall was destroyed by the recent explosion there, Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) President David Albright has told The Jerusalem Post.

Albright said that this latest revelation is based on two new satellite overviews showing a much fuller picture than footage that was released last weekend and indicates that the vast majority of the centrifuge assembly hall was wiped out.

This could mean there would be increased delay to Iran's nuclear program, since it will have to recover from the incident.

"It is clear that a major explosion took place, destroying nearly three quarters of the main centrifuge assembly hall, generating a fire that blackened a major portion of the building, the blackening visible where the roof had been blown away by the earth-shattering kaboom," Albright said.

According to the latest report by the think tank, "High-resolution commercial satellite imagery...shows that the Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
Centrifuge Assembly Center (ICAC) at the Natanz Enrichment Site has suffered significant, extensive, and likely irreparable, damage to its main assembly hall section."

Further, the report says, "This new facility, inaugurated in 2018, was critical to the mass production of advanced centrifuges, in particular the assembly of rotor assemblies, the rapidly spinning part of the centrifuge and its most crucial component. "

In terms of rolling back Tehran's future nuclear program plans, the report adds, "An annex to the building was intended to assemble electrical components of centrifuges, including motors, another important component of centrifuges."

#1  Windows, such as the are, blown out. Instruments which aren't damaged in buildings which aren't damaged need to be recalibrated. How's the plumbing? Any of the maintenance staff being questioned? Lots more delay than simply fixing up the building in the lower left.
