Virat Kohli has amazingly matured as captain: Kapil Dev

first_img Press Trust of India New DelhiMay 29, 2019UPDATED: May 29, 2019 18:19 IST Kapil Dev has lauded Virat Kohli for the way he has mellowed with time (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli has mellowed in the recent past, says Kapil DevI know he has been criticised for being aggressive, sometimes brash: KapilVirat Kohli will be leading India at World Cup 2019, starting May 30Virat Kohli’s style of captaincy four years ago was more “instinctive” but has now become more inclusive as he has mellowed down with the passage of time, feels the legendary Kapil Dev.The 1983 World Cup winning captain said that there is no better person to lead India in a “daunting mission” like the World Cup in England.”I must say, he (Kohli) has matured amazingly from the time he has taken over captaincy from Dhoni. I know he has been criticised for being aggressive, sometimes brash but that’s how he has played the game,” Kapil said in a newly released book ‘World Cup Warriors’ written by veteran journalist Vijay Lokapally of ‘The Hindu’.”He may have looked childish to some but there was never any doubt that he was challenging himself to take the game to the next level.”He was instinctive four years back but he has mellowed. You can see the difference in how he seeks reviews from the third umpire. He doesn’t mind consulting his colleagues and that’s a sign of maturity,” Kapil said.The new book is a ready reckoner, profiling all the 15 members of India’s World Cup squad along with head coach Ravi Shastri, with each player being assessed by former India World Cup stars.The book also comprises Austin Coutinho’s caricatures of all the players.Also Read | Pakistan to host T20 Asia cup 2020 in neutral venueAlso Read | Give him any role, Hardik Pandya takes it up with a smile: KL RahulAlso See:advertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Ruqyah Are Rakis Islamic Exorcists or Spiritual Opportunists

Rabat – Following the early December arrest of a raqi, an exorcist, in Berkane, northeast Morocco, for sexual assault of female “patients,” qualms about the nature of ruqyah and similar religious practices have resurfaced.Ruqyah is the act of reciting verses from the Qur’an or praying du’aa, a form of supplication, to exorcise a person from demon possession, the “ayn” evil eye, or magic.Raqis, the people who perform ruqyah, commonly recite surah Al Fatiha (1), surahs of Al-Falaq (113) and An-Nas (114). Rakis say the words over water which the “patient” then drinks. The origins of ruqyahMuslims believe that ruqyah is from the sunnah, the sayings and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.According to hadiths, which are the accumulation of reports about the sayings and actions of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), the prophet used to recite Qur’anic verses over himself whenever he felt ill.“It was narrated that A’ishah said: ‘When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) was ill, he would recite [the surahs of Al-Falaq and An-Nas] over himself and spit dryly. When his pain grew intense, I recited over him and wiped him with his own hand, seeking its blessing,’” the hadith collector Al-Bukhari recorded.Raqis perform ablutions, the ritual of washing before prayer, and recite the Qur’an or pray du’aa over a cup of water before drinking it or offering it to someone to drink.Today, one click on Facebook’s search page can lead to dozens of people claiming to be raqis who ward off demonic possession and heal other supernatural illnesses.Some use ruqyah to swindle and exploit people financially or sexually. The phenomenon, known as “fake raqis,” can be found anywhere in the Muslim world.Rea Also: Tangier Court Sentences Husband to 2 Years for Raping WifeThe scandal of a Moroccan ‘raqi’The Berkane raqi scandal began in recent weeks when a sexual video of the 50-something raqi and a young woman was posted online and widely shared on social media, causing widespread controversy in Morocco. Police in Berkane, a city in northeast Morocco, arrested the raqi after they found other videos, saved on his computer, of him engaging in sexual acts with female ruqyah clients.If convicted, the raqi faces up to 20 years in prison on charges of charlatanism, adultery, and blackmail.According to authorities, the man calls himself an imam and has used ruqyah to exploit clients sexually, including married women. After many commenters accused the woman of “willingly” engaging in sexual activities with the raqi in the video, she released her own video defending herself. She said that she was not aware of her actions because the raqi had drugged her.“When the raqi gives you water to drink, you can’t say no and you drink it believing that it’s ruqyah, you do not know what you are doing, or that you are drugged … I am a victim,” the woman said.The scandal reached Parliament in mid-December. During a weekly session at the House of Representatives, Minister of Endowment and Islamic Affairs Ahmed Taoufiq and a member of the Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP), Hanane Rihab, debated how ruqyah has turned into a lucrative business.While Taoufiq emphasized that one should not generalize because not all people who practice ruqyah are frauds, he promised to intensify the crackdown on fake raqis.The minister stressed that the healthcare sector is the only authority responsible for health in the country rather than the Ministry of Islamic Affairs. The case of the Berkane raqi is a drop in the ocean of religious swindles in Morocco. It is a case that has psychological, legal, and moral dimensions.“The so-called raqis,” for the MP Hanane Rihab, claim to provide psychological care and even healing from diseases such as cancer which indicates the extent of “ignorance” in society.“The role of the Ministry of Health is important” in raising awareness about the phenomenon, said Rihab.Read Also: Study: Islam is the World’s Fastest Growing ReligionRuqyah is not a professionReacting to “what ruqyah has become today,” Mohammed Saghiri, a Moroccan imam told Morocco World News that “ruqyah, which is a part of the Islamic tradition, is not a means to earn money.”Saghiri, who also used to perform ruqyah, said real “ruqyah is not how it is today, a way to use people, to lie to people, and to take their money or exploit them sexually.”Saghiri condemned the use of ruqyah for immoral motives or as a “profession.” “There are those who call themselves raqis and charge people with money, either asking for MAD 50 or MAD 100, as if they were doctors. Ruqyah is done either on oneself after [ablutions] or voluntarily for other people for the sake of God.” read more

Underground Coal to Liquids UCTL update – significant progress

first_imgPreliminary results suggest that Stanford University has achieved the primary objective of coal liquefaction using specifications of UCTL. Qualitative demonstration of liquid hydrocarbon products being formed from coal using near-critical or supercritical water at conditions anticipated in UCTL. Quantitative demonstration expected from further testing on conversation of coal to liquid hydrocarbons and gas. Fast liquefaction times with Stanford’s continuous coal feed reactor is considered novel and could lead to further intellectual property. Potential application of UCTL to upgrade heavy hydrocarbons.Regal Resources, via its 50% owned entity UCTL Pty, advises that it has received a Phase Two Interim Report from C&C Engineering with encouraging results indicating that liquid hydrocarbons can be produced from the UCTL process. C&C Engineering is a California based chemical engineering consultancy with a depth of expertise in coal gasification and liquefaction.UCTL is a novel patent pending technology which aims to convert low rank brown coal, lignite or shale within the coal seam into liquid hydrocarbons and gas. UCTL consists of an innovative combination of existing technologies. The key conversion step is the hydrogenation of coal with super-critical water to produce liquid (oil and gas) hydrocarbons. The UCTL process, if proven, may offer advantages over competing coal-to-oil technologies, and has potential application to the significant world-wide deposits of coal and shales as a replacement for dwindling world oil reserves.UCTL contracted with Stanford University for bench-scale proof-of-concept experimental work and extended C&C Engineering’s contract to provide continued consulting to UCTL Pty and technical support and guidance to Stanford. Stanford University has the only test facility globally that is capable of testing supercritical water conversion of coals on a continuous feed basis. C&C Engineering’s interim report presents progress made on testing and assessment of the UCTL concept. The final report has been delayed due to the rapid conversions of the test coal under continuous flowing conditions. Equipment modifications to better capture the faster than expected conversion of coal are planned and is now expected to be finalised in Q3 2012.C&C Engineering’s preliminary review of results from the operation of Stanford’s supercritical flow through reactor suggests that Stanford University has achieved significant conversion of a reference coal to product fluids (gases and liquids). C&C Engineering have qualitative indications of liquefaction in experimental runs.Stanford University has achieved this objective for at least one coal sample, a sub-bituminous sample of Wyoming’s Wyodak coal, a widely recognised reference coal. Stanford also plans to demonstrate liquefaction with lignite coals from Australia, including samples recovered from Oak Park, located within Regal’s EL 4507 tenement in Victoria.The surprising aspect of the test results is the increase in liquefaction from shorter reaction times under UCTL parameters. Shortest test time possible with current equipment is five minutes in continuous flowing trials. Equipment modifications to shorten reaction times even further are recommended with a view to further increasing liquids production over gases in these rapid coal conversions. C&C Engineering commented that such rapid conversion of coals was not discovered in previous research due to limitations of alternative coal test equipment. The fast liquefaction times could lead to the generation of new intellectual property and other applications for the technology. Due to the design of the existing Stanford equipment, it is not possible to capture and measure the entire oil and gas production from testing. It is anticipated that this issue will be addressed in the near term via the modification of equipment so that the analytical carbon balance of the gas and liquids produced can be accurately measured.The test results from Stanford University also suggests the potential to apply the UCTL process towards upgrading heavy bituminous oils and oils produced from tar sands.last_img read more

Invasion How ladybirds have taken over Christmas trees this year

first_imgAS INVASIONS GO, it’s a pretty stealthy one.If you bought a real Christmas tree this year, you may have noticed some little visitors came along for the ride.An unusually high number of ladybirds, which are usually found during the summer months, have been popping up in trees around the country.People have been recording their findings on Twitter, with one user tweeting: “Look what we just found under the Christmas tree lights! A little ladybird in December”. Another person found more than one: “[T]he crushed ladybird is on the floor; I have to prove to my dad that our house is infested and some ladybirds came in on the christmas tree”.Even Christmas tree sellers have been taken by surprise.“We’ve never seen this happening before,” says Justin Morton from Killakee Christmas Tree Farm in Dublin 16. “Generally we very seldom see any ladybirds [on the trees] once September comes around and we’d never see one in a cut tree. But this year we’ve seen loads of them”.The numbers vary, Justin says. “Some trees you might see one on them and then on others you might see 20″.So what’s going on? Are ladybirds planning to take over? Have our winters got so mild that animals can’t tell what season it is any more?A ladybird on a Christmas tree in Dublin. (Pic: sophietennant/Instagram)“It’s a mixture of things,” says Billy Flynn, an ecologist and a director of the Irish Wildlife Trust.Ladybirds have to hibernate in the winter and Christmas trees makes for a natural habitat as they provide somewhere cosy and safe to hide out.“If people look carefully, they’ll see that the ladybirds are most likely to be found in the most sheltered part of the tree,” Billy explains.“What’s happening is people are transporting a ladybird habitat into their homes when they get a Christmas tree, and it’s the only time of the year you’d do that, so you’re bringing hibernating ladybirds into the house”.So that explains why ladybirds like Christmas trees – but why so many of them? Billy says that the unusually warm summer means that many more ladybirds survived this year than usually would, which means their numbers are up.“Ladybirds live a relatively long time compared to other beetles, but a  lot would usually die off from the cold once the weather turns. Their body temperature is dependent on the outside conditions, so when temperatures get really low, they will either go into hibernation, or they will die – which is why they have to hibernate somewhere sheltered”.“Because our summer was good it, it’s likely that their numbers would be up because more of them would have made it through to this late stage”.Flynn also points out that part of the reason there may seem to be so many more ladybirds around this winter may be simply that people are now more likely to talk about it.“People communicate more now. In the past, if something like this happened, people wouldn’t think it was worth mentioning, but now people have social media and can take a quick photograph,” he says.So what to do if you find a load of ladybirds in your Christmas tree? “If people want to be kind and humane, they could put the ladybirds somewhere outside that’s sheltered,” says Billy Flynn. “A tree or a shed or anywhere where they can continue to hibernate and be sheltered from the worst of the weather”.So there you go: ladybird mystery solved.“It’s Mother Nature at work,” says Justin Morton. “We had one customer call asking if we’d put them in the trees but no, it’s just nature doing what it does”.Watch: Cat climbs Christmas tree, the inevitable happens > Read: The greatest Christmas tree in Ireland has been found >last_img read more

Crytek had Crysis 3 ready to launch on Wii U

first_imgAt the beginning of January we learned that Crytek was more than willing to port Crysis 3 over to the Wii U hardware. Ultimately they didn’t because EA and Nintendo decided it just wasn’t worth it from a business perspective. Both publisher and platform holder didn’t think the game would sell enough to warrant the cost of publishing.Two months on from that and Crytek president Cevat Yerli has revealed that they actually had the game running on the Wii U before it got canceled. Not only that, but the developer was “very close to launching it” according to Yerli.His comments were made during an interview with GamesBeat where he went on to say there was no business support from EA or Nintendo for the game. There was also no way for Crytek to self-publish the game as they don’t hold the rights–EA does.So to be clear, both Nintendo and EA rejected a game that was already running on the hardware and ready to launch, is an established series that is guaranteed to sell units, and is currently topping the sales charts on other competing platforms.What possible reason is there not to release that game? Did they think it wouldn’t even make back the cost of producing the discs and marketing? Or was it a case that they decided Wii U owners were not the type of audience that would be interested in buying the FPS?Whatever the case, it seems likely that if Nintendo is happy to make such a decision for Crysis 3, then other games in the same genre could meet a similar fate.last_img read more

Source: Wilfredo LeeOfficials said investigations remain open into the other threats against Jewish schools, community centres and other institutions, as well as vandalism against three Jewish cemeteries.Many of the scores of bomb threats were phoned in. Jewish community officials say those calls appeared to use electronic devices to mask the voice and location of the caller or callers.The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, which investigates hate crimes, is leading the probe, officials said. But the statement on Thompson’s arrest said his prosecution also involves the department’s counterterrorism and general crimes units.While the bomb threats appear to have halted in recent days, overnight on Wednesday someone toppled about a dozen headstones and defaced pictures on them in a Jewish cemetery in Rochester, New York.It was the third Jewish cemetery in two weeks to be vandalised. More than 200 headstones were overturned or broken in cemeteries in St Louis, Missouri and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, adding to fears of a rise in open anti-Semitism in the country.Meredith Dragon, chief executive of the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester, said local police were not yet ready to determine whether what happened there was an act of petty vandalism or a targeted hate crime.As no local Jewish community centres or schools were targeted in the recent spate of telephone threats, it “leads me to believe this has been local,” she said.Trump comments questioned Donald Trump Source: Pablo Martinez MonsivaisOn Tuesday, President Donald Trump condemned the threats and vandalism in a speech before Congress, saying such acts “remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.”But earlier that day, according to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, Trump suggested to a group of state prosecutors that some of the threats and acts of vandalism could be “the reverse,” suggesting they were aimed not at Jews but at making others look bad politically.Shapiro told NPR radio yesterday that such mixed messages from the president “stokes doubt” in the public about what is going on.“I don’t know what the president meant,” he said. “But here’s what I know, is that presidents must speak with moral clarity, not through mixed messages…. And this kind of wishy-washy speech leaves too much open to interpretation by the wrong people.”- © AFP, 2017Read: Trump decries bigotry and intolerance during visit to African American museum> Man arrested over making bomb threats in his ex-girlfriend’s name The calls were made to Jewish community centres and schools around the US.

HandsOn The Tetris Effect is VR Puzzle Nirvana

first_img One of my core gaming beliefs is that communist puzzle masterpiece Tetris is one of, if not the only, truly perfect video game. And that foundational perfection is so strong it’s hard to mess up. Additions like Puyo Puyo blobs or all the Nintendo bells and whistles of Tetris DS just make Tetris better. Really, the only bad Tetris games are inexplicably lazy efforts from the likes of Ubisoft and EA that somehow manage to have connectivity issues and bad framerates… in Tetris!Even for a Tetris game though The Tetris Effect has had us giddy with excitement us ever since its surprise reveal just before this E3. One, it’s just a fantastic name, referencing the hypnotic phenomenon endemic to puzzle games where players see blocks falling even when the game is turned off. But more importantly, virtual reality rights loopholes have allowed trance gaming god Tetsuya Mizuguchi of Rez and Lumines to finally make a Tetris game after years of trying. And the result is as mind-expanding as you’d expect.On a basic level, The Tetris Effect is still Tetris. You’re still dropping four-piece blocks down the well to build and clear lines. You can still spin and fast drop blocks or hold that precious long piece for a later combo. You know what Tetris is and this is still that. Even with PlayStation VR you’re not like moving your head to catch Tetris pieces falling all around you. You’re looking at a standard Tetris field floating in front of you in space.However, there is one major new gameplay addition in the form of the Zone Meter. Once filled, you can enter the Zone to freeze time for a few seconds. While in the Zone, any lines you clear are banked without changing the layout. After you leave the Zone you then get the entire combo simultaneously, possibly clearing like eight or twelve lines at once and seeing insane words like “Dodecahetris.” It’s a brilliant new challenge for people who are already great at Tetris but feel confined by the current four-line limit. The kind of “thinking eight moves ahead” macro planning you’d have to do to max out this combo system makes the mind race with puzzle possibilities.But even as a normal Tetris experience The Tetris Effect feels fresh just through its presentation. Unsurprising from the man who made Rez, The Tetris Effect places a heavy emphasis on syncing the gameplay with trippy music and lights. Songs, sound effects, and art styles change as you progress through stages, like skins in Lumines. Mandalas made of shimmering particles shift and spin and explode while a woman sings about our hearts all being connected.It’s all so cool and pairs perfectly with the way puzzle games harmoniously reshape your brain, the titular “Tetris Effect.” Playing this all in VR (which is optional) completes the experience of sensory synesthetic cohesion between gameplay, visuals, and sound.I rarely need an excuse to play more Tetris. But The Tetris Effect offers a tantalizing chance to completely seal myself off into an entire world of Tetris, like drowning in the most soothing ocean. We’ll see if I can pull myself back when The Tetris Effect launches later this year on PlayStation 4. ‘Tetris Effect’ Brings Puzzle Game Psychedelia to PC’Tetris 99′ Gets Physical Release Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

How Marines prepare to become F18 pilots at MCAS Miramar

first_img Updated: 6:38 PM Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom, How Marines prepare to become F-18 pilots at MCAS Miramar Posted: July 26, 2017center_img KUSI Newsroom July 26, 2017 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Becoming a pilot in the military is no small feat and the Marine Corps has their own training program at MCAS Miramar in San Diego to help future aviators.KUSI News got a chance to meet students and instructors with Marine fighter attack Squadron VMFAT-101 who were training to become F-18 pilots.They’re the future of Marine Corps aviation.  Having successfully completed flight school in smaller training jets, these Marines are moving on to the next phase to becoming fighter pilots in the fleet.Their journey leads them to VMFAT-101 a squadron known as the “Sharpshooters” at MCAS Miramar. Here they’ll learn to fly the F-18 Hornet.  Roughly 40 thousand pounds of fire-breathing US government hardware that’s been a mainstay in Naval and Marine Corps. aviation for decades.Newly winged aviators get their initially check-up in the F-18 and then in the span of a year, go through about 100 hours of simulators and flights, Colonel Timothy G. Burton, the squadron’s Commanding Officer said.They’re known as Category One Aviators.Category One is pretty much you haven’t flown the F-18 at all, so it’s the full work up to turn your into an F-18 pilot or WSO,” 1st Lt. Daniel Lahti said.But the F-18 is much more powerful than the T-45 jets they learned in. So what is the difference?“About one-eighth of the power you have in F-18s, so initially when you first started learning it feels like a lot of aircraft to handle, Lahti said. Eventually, we have good instructors here that teach you and you get a hold of it. It’s definitely a lot of fun.”So what is a WSO?“A Weapons System Operator. We sit in the back seat and we do a lot of the [communications] and operating the sensors and keeping the overall situational awareness of the entire battle space,” CPT Andrew Hugh said.Now an instructor pilot with the Sharpshooters, Captain Jordan Meredith earned his wings of gold back in 2011.  He was the focus of a documentary called “Angle of Attack” that followed him through his Marine flight training.“The F-18 while it is a very easy airplane to fly, the hard part comes in tactically employing the airplane with all of our weapons and sensors, and combining it while moving 8 to 10 miles a minute, that becomes hard,” Meredith said. “and that’s what we kind of have to train these new students to do.”But the future of Marine Corps aviation is changing. For these young aviators who decide to make a career of the marines, at some point they will be transitioning from the F-18 to the F-35.Known as a 5th generation fighter, the F35 boasts state-of-the-art stealth technology.  It’s virtually invisible to today’s enemy radar systems and it’s capabilities are unsurpassed.“My experience with these 5th generation aircrafts is that for the most part no one ever sees them,” Burton said.But time flying in the air means wrenches turning on the ground.  The dedicated Sharpshooter maintenance crews work diligently to make sure the squadrons jets are safe and airworthy before they leave the ground.“If we do our job to the best of our ability, the more training pilots get certified, we can actually send them out into the fleet Marine force to conduct operations where they’re needed,” Staff SSgt Anthony Jefferis said. “Being able to insure that any time I look at an air crew — whether it’s a pilot, whether it’s a WSO — in the eye, I can effectively tell them that the aircraft is going to be safe to fly and I’ll see them when they get back.” last_img read more

Frigidaire wants you to throw out your air fryer

first_img CNET Smart Home Tags Air fryers are a cool concept, but are they worth the price? Ovens Don’t believe the hype about air fryers 11 Photos CNET Smart Home Now playing: Watch this: Frigidaire Electrolux/Frigidaire Frigidaire’s latest collection of ranges debuted at the KBIS 2019 trade show Tuesday, adding a new air fry feature to the oven lineup. The new 30-inch range will be available in gas (FGGH3047VF), electric (FGEH3047VF) and induction (FGIH3047VF) models in smudge-proof stainless steel and black stainless finishes. The freestanding range includes such features as wall-to-wall glass and front controls for sliding it into existing cabinetry layouts to get a built-in look. The range also boasts a light, 20-minute steam cleaning mode for everyday maintenance and a quick preheat featured aimed at cutting down the wait between turning on your oven and cooking your food. The gas cooktop features an 18,000-BTU power burner, 5,000-BTU simmer burner and 10,000-BTU oval burner. A griddle pan is also included. Frigidaire also says it’s made the new burners easier to remove for cleaning.What’s most interesting about the oven is Frigidaire’s new air fry button, something we haven’t seen in a full-size oven until now. But how does air frying in an oven differ from convection baking? The folks at Frigidaire explained that the air fryer mode heats up the air inside the oven to a higher temperature than what you’d use with convection. It then gradually cools down as the fan circulates air around the cavity rapidly. Pricing for Frigidaire’s new range starts at $2,049 for electric stainless steel and tops out at $2,349 for induction black stainless. Gas and electric stainless steel models will be available in July 2019 with black stainless models following in September.  Aug 31 • Best smart light bulbs for 2019 (plus switches, light strips, accessories and more) Aug 31 • Alexa can tell you if someone breaks into your house • reading • Frigidaire wants you to throw out your air fryer Share your voice 1 2:16 Aug 30 • Battling bot vacs: iRobot Roomba S9+ vs Neato Botvac D7 Connected See All Comment Aug 31 • The best coffee grinders you can buy right nowlast_img read more

NATO vows action on insider attacks in Afghanistan

first_imgThe United States and its allies are pushing to have Afghan forces take over security for the country by the end of 2014. That effort has been imperiled by the spike in insider attacks, which have killed 45 international service members this year, most of them Americans. There were at least 12 such attacks in August alone, resulting in 15 deaths.On Sunday, the U.S. military halted the training of some Afghan forces. Although the move affects only about 1,000 trainees, a small fraction of the country’s 350,000-strong army and police, it highlighted the potential of the attacks to derail the U.S.-Afghan handover of security considered so essential to the international exit strategy.Additional measures to prevent insider attacks may include strengthened vetting and screening procedures, improved counterintelligence, as well as cultural awareness training, Fogh Rasmussen told journalists. He did not elaborate.Officials say that the international coalition ultimately hopes to re-check the backgrounds of the entire Afghan army and police forces.“We have introduced and will continue to introduce a broad range of measures to prevent such attacks, because these attacks threaten to undermine trust and confidence between foreign troops and Afghan security forces,” Fogh Rasmussen said. “We’ll do everything it takes to prevent such attacks.” Associated PressBRUSSELS (AP) – The surge of assaults by Afghan soldiers and police on their foreign allies will not derail plans to draw down international troops from Afghanistan, but in the meantime, NATO will “do everything it takes” to stop such insider attacks, the military alliance’s top official said Tuesday.“Our goal, our strategy, our timetable remain the same,” Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.

This included the Vietnam War and wars waged by France, Britain and other colonial powers since the 1940s.In such conflicts, the guerrillas usually sought to infiltrate local security forces to obtain intelligence on enemy intentions or to subvert enemy operations rather than mount attacks on Western soldiers, said Martin Windrow, a British military historian and expert on colonial wars.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
