China : UN task force urges China to end forced sterilization of Uyghur women
In order to control the Uyghur population, China made Uyghur women sterile and forced Uyghur girls to marry Chinese men, creating a challenge to the Uyghur national existence. As the issue drew international attention, a UN Human Rights Council commission on women issued a report calling on the Chinese government to end all forms of discriminatory treatment of Uyghur women, including forced sterilization and forced abortion.
The report and the recommendations in the report released on May 30 by the UN Human Rights Council Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women are the summary report of the committee’s regular review meeting on China’s women’s rights development held on May 12 this year.
China attended the meeting on May 12 with a large delegation. At the meeting, the Chinese delegation faced tough questions from UN investigators about China’s discriminatory treatment of Uyghur women, but the Chinese side defended their treatment of Uyghur women.
In a report released by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women on May 30, “allegations of coercive family planning practices, forced abortions, and other forms of sexual violence including forced sterilization in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, especially in areas where the majority of Uyghurs live It is emphasized that sometimes corporal punishment is organized. According to the report, “the birth rate in these regions is one of the reasons for the sharp decline compared to other regions of China.” According to the report, China should take immediate measures to end all forms of family planning policies, abortion, infertility and sexual violence in the region; To prevent it, to define such behavior as a crime; It is also requested to conduct an investigation and hold responsible individuals accountable.
This is the second report of the UN working group on Uyghurs since March of this year. In March of this year, the UN Human Rights Council’s Working Group against Arbitrary Kidnapping issued a report, requesting the Chinese government to release journalist and editor-in-chief Keba Mamut, founder of the “Baghdash” network, Akbar Esat, and doctor Gulshan Abbas. In an interview with us on May 31st, the director of Uyghur Movement in the United States, Mr. Abbas, said that the report of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has “recognized the abuse of Chinese Uyghur women on the international stage” and “a new step has been taken at the UN.” means
But apparently Abbas said the UN should not stop at making recommendations to China, declaring China’s actions “genocide” and holding China accountable.
Another important recommendation in the above report is the policy of forcing Uyghur girls to marry Chinese men, which the Chinese government is currently implementing on a large scale in the Uyghur region. The report states that “women of all ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, such as Uyghur women, should be free to choose their spouses, ensure their free and full consent in marriage, and fully investigate all cases of coercion of Uyghur women into inter-ethnic marriages, including government officials.” It is required to prosecute and appropriately punish the individuals responsible.
Along with mass kidnappings in the region that began in 2017, the Chinese government has carried out large-scale forced marriages of Uyghur girls to Chinese men as part of its regional stability policy. Chinese media began openly promoting Chinese singles with advertisements urging them to go to “Xinjiang” and marry Uyghur girls. There have been reports of Uyghur girls who refuse to touch Chinese men being accused of “radicalisation” or their parents threatened with detention in camps.
However, this kind of forced marriage has not only provoked strong protests from Uyghurs, but has also been criticized by foreign researchers. They have been asking the international community to put pressure on China to stop forced marriage.
David Tobin, an eminent researcher of Uighur studies at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK, said that the Chinese Communist Party’s forcing Uighurs to marry Chinese is “biological racism”. In this, he emphasizes that the Chinese authorities believe in eliminating Uyghurs biologically, not by killing them, but by marrying them off. David Tobin says: “One of the biggest implications of this for China’s politics is that the official definition of China is not just plain old Confucianism, but the biological racism of the party state’s interpretation of Chinese and Uyghurs in biological terms.
David Tobin said that the forced marriage policy in the Chinkin region is part of his plan to Chineseize East Turkistan. According to David Tobin, “The party state’s forced marriage program in eastern Turkistan represents one part of its broader plan to Chineseize eastern Turkistan and other Muslim regions.” This is old-fashioned Chinese chauvinism, part of a program of assimilation and assimilation. He considers other cultures that are the object of so-called selection to be backward, backward, and unimportant, so that such cultures can be assimilated by the developed, advanced Chinese culture.
But apparently Abbas said that China’s forcing Uyghur girls to marry Chinese is “one of the main forms of genocide” that China is perpetrating in East Turkistan.
The report of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women published on May 30 also requested China to stop and end the forced labor of Uyghur women. The report calls for a ban on forced employment measures, including forced labor, against Uyghur women, an immediate end to such measures, the release of all women caught in forced labor, and individuals who engage in sexual violence and harassment against women in the workplace, particularly in vocational training and retraining centers, including the government. His officials were demanded to be tried and punished.
However, at the May 12 meeting of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, the Chinese delegation rejected all allegations that China is persecuting Uyghur women. In response to questions about Uyghur women being forced to marry Chinese, he argued that Uyghur women were freed from all kinds of traditional and religious barriers and helped to freely choose a partner of their own free will.
North Korea : B-1B, which will become stronger, will destroy Pyongyang even if it is fired from Jeju
It was confirmed on the 28th of last month that the U.S. Air Force conducted ground run training called “Elephant Walk” by mobilizing dozens of F-16 “Fighting Falcons” and other fighter jets at a domestic air base earlier this month.
This is a ‘Encyclopedia of New Weapons on the Korean Peninsula’ that tries to find a way to peace while accurately grasping the current state of the military confrontation on the Korean Peninsula. Lee Il-woo, Executive Director of Korea’s Self-Defense Network.
‘ Elephant March ‘ on Children’s Day , a message from the US Air Force to North Korea
Recently , the US Air Force in Korea conducted an elephant walk training with a large-scale aircraft force . Not the same thump . Kung . Kung . It must be grand . What is Elephant Walk ?
The name “Elephant Walk” comes from the fact that the planes moving in groups on the taxiway leading to the runway are reminiscent of a herd of elephants walking . It took off in large groups before the bombing of the mainland .
Elephant walks can be done by fighters, or by bombers or transports . In modern times, the tactical meaning is not great , but it is being conducted for the purpose of showing the enemy that the ability of the allies is this much by visually showing off their power .
On the weekend of May 27 , Korean time , the USFK Osan Air Base posted several photos on its Facebook account . The US military side gave the name ‘Mammoth Walk’ beyond ‘Elephant Walk’ , and the scale was enormous .
It is no exaggeration to say that all units of the 7th Air Force, which is the US Air Force in Korea, participated in the Osan Base Elephant Walk training . Two squadrons under the 51st Fighter Wing originally stationed in Osan participated , and two squadrons under the 8th Fighter Wing stationed in Gunsan, but temporarily moved to Osan from April to August due to construction of the runway at Gunsan Base , and U -2S reconnaissance planes also participated in the US Army Air Corps .
Osan, Gyeonggi- do is about an hour’s drive from Seoul via Seongnam and Suwon . What US fighters were mobilized for this Elephant Walk ?
There are 54 aircraft in the photo, including 37 F-16 fighters , 12 A – 10C attack aircraft , 2 U-2S reconnaissance aircraft , and 3 army C -12 transport aircraft . It was the largest among the works .
What is noteworthy is that May 5 , the day of the Elephant Walk, is Children’s Day in Korea, so many people will remember it, but it rained heavily . We flew 54 aircraft in bad weather , and since I live in Pyeongtaek, I heard a lot of loud fighter jets that day .
At the time , all US fighters and attack aircraft participating in the Elephant Walk were heavily armed with auxiliary fuel tanks, air-to-air missiles, air -to -surface missiles, and precision -guided bombs. is sent .
How powerful is the F16-Pobit capable of hitting Pyongyang south of the Armistice Line ?
Some of the F-16s mobilized for training are not the F-16s that we have known before , but are improved fighters with better performance ?
Fighters are continuously developing technology, and a new generation is emerging . During the Korean War, early jet fighters equipped with jet engines, such as the F -86 of the US Army and the MIG-15 of the Soviet Union , were called the first generation. Models such as -21 are classified as second- generation fighters .
Fighters such as the F-4 or F-5 of the United States and the MiG-23 of the Soviet Union, which appeared from the 1960s , were equipped with radar and were able to operate missiles . It has become possible to operate precision-guided weapons while flying in bad weather without . Models such as the F-15 , F-16, and North Korea’s MiG-29 are fourth- generation fighters .
The USFK F-16 is a model that corresponds to the F-16C/D block 40 version and is a model to which relatively new technology is applied among 4th generation fighters , but it is true that the technology is somewhat outdated by modern standards because it came out in the early 2000s is .
The United States is still improving the F-16 or F-15 , which came out in the 1970s, and transforming them into the latest 4.5 generation fighters such as the F-16V or F-15EX , which are the same as the F-22 or F-35. It is a fighter that combines the technology applied to the 5th generation fighter into the 4th generation fighter . The 4.5th generation improved aircraft appeared in this elephant training .
USFK is deploying improved F-16 fighters under the name of F-16 PoBit, Post Block Integration Team from April 2023 . The existing F-16 is not a mechanical radar , that is, an older radar that physically moves an antenna that transmits and receives radio waves when detecting a target, but is equipped with the latest active electronically scanned phased array radar, commonly referred to as AESA radar . This is the biggest feature of the F-16 PoBit .
Looking at the appearance, it is the same F-16 , but the performance is the difference between heaven and earth . The maximum detection range of the mechanical radar of the existing F – 16 is 280 km , and the actual fighter detection distance is around 150 km .
The improved F-16 also has a special paint called Have Glass V, which greatly reduces the radar reflection area . Although it is not at the level of a stealth fighter , since the radar reflection area of the F-16, which was originally small, has been further reduced , it will be difficult for the North Korean radar to detect this fighter unless the USF- 16 fighter is approaching quite close .
The new F-16 is a stealth cruise missile JASSM-ER that can strike major strategic targets in North Korea from a distance of 900km with high precision, an SDB-II precision-guided bomb that can strike moving targets like tweezers from a distance of 70km , It is expected to greatly enhance the power of the USFK, as it is possible to operate a new air-to-air missile that can unilaterally attack North Korean fighters over Pyongyang without exceeding the .
Armed B-1B beyond imagination, strong but getting stronger
It seems that the US strike power against North Korea has been strengthened, but another thing that is incomparable to this has been prepared in Guam ?
The B-1B, a supersonic bomber that the US frequently deploys to Guam and can launch a massive missile attack on North Korea within 3 hours in case of emergency , has recently begun a tremendous renovation .
It is a kind of external armament mounting device called Load Adaptable Modular proposed by Boeing , and when it is mounted on the B-1B, the bomber’s armament capability increases dramatically .
The B-1B is a supersonic bomber originally developed with an emphasis on high-speed performance, so no external armament was installed . Thanks to this , it is possible to achieve a high speed of Mach 1.25 , but this speed was useful during the Cold War, when the tactics of infiltrating at high speed under the blind spot of the Soviet air defenses, bombing, and exiting at high speed were used, so now they rarely fly at supersonic speed .
However, the B-1B is equipped with a more powerful engine than the B-52 or B-2 for supersonic flight , and the B-1B itself is large . I’ve been thinking about whether I can post .
A total of six LAMs can be installed on the outside of the B-1B bomber , and the amount of ordnance mounted on them is simply staggering . The B-1B has an armament capacity of 96 small SDB guided bombs or 24 large 2000 pound bombs and 24 JASSM stealth cruise missiles in the internal armament bay . The SDB will carry 48 more rounds , and the 2000 pound JDAM and JASSM will carry 12 rounds more .
Most notably, it is now able to carry six GBU-72 bombs , a large bunker buster that originally did not fit in the B-1B’s internal weapons bay . The GBU-72 , a 5000- pound bunker buster that is significantly larger than the 2000- pound flagship model among existing aircraft-dropped bunker busters, is a monster that can penetrate more than 45 meters of normal soil and 4.5 to 5 meters of reinforced concrete .
In Guam, bomber BTFs are usually deployed in units of 4 units . If the US launches these 4 units at the same time , the US can pour 144 stealth cruise missiles out of North Korea’s air defense network at once with only these 4 units , or 24 high-powered bunker busters. Pyongyang can be heavily bombed . From North Korea’s point of view, another very threatening weapon has appeared .
Undetectable jasm missiles , hundreds of simultaneous launches
It sounds like a warning message about North Korea’s launch of a military satellite. If these forces are mobilized, can North Korea stop it ?
Actually, if the US is determined to attack, North Korea has no way to stop it. Since the B-1B could come from Guam or from the US mainland , North Korea cannot predict whether the missile will come from the south or the east .
Considering that a B-1B bomber simultaneously fires 144 JASSM -ER missiles from a distance of 900 km , far beyond the detection range of North Korean or Chinese radars, it would be a nightmare for North Korea .
The JASSM-ER adopts an aggressive stealth design, making it virtually undetectable by radar , and has an excellent accuracy . It has already been put into action several times , and in the 2018 Syrian chemical weapons facility raid, it has a history of easily breaking through the multi-layered air defense network of the Russian and Syrian allied forces and destroying the target .
The missiles used by Russia and Syria at the time were air defense weapons such as the S-400, S-300, Buk , and SA-2 , and these weapons are superior to any air defense system currently possessed by North Korea . Breaking through these air defense systems lightly means that North Korea’s air defense networks can also be easily breached .
Since the 450kg warhead mounted on the JASSM-ER is a penetrating warhead that penetrates concrete or building outer walls and explodes from the inside, if the US decides to pulverize the official residence No. 15 in the center of Pyongyang or the Labor Party building and launch a massive missile attack, From North Korea’s point of view, it is impossible to detect, let alone defend.
