Democracy and Class Struggle has no problem with Latvia's banks helping North Korea bypass sanctions that we do not agree with.
However when you are a neo liberal poster child invariably you put money as your God before people.
Capitalists and bankers are profit patriots and sell out their countries interests for personal ones therefore we are not in the least surprised by corruption in Latvia.

The People Protection Units (YPG) assured that after a month of the ongoing resistance in Afrin against the Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries and calling for the Syrian government to do its duty protecting the Syrian border, military units responded to the calling and headed to station on the border in Afrin.
The spokesperson of YPG Nury Mahmoud issued a statement about the entrance of units of the Syrian army to Afrin and said,
“After passing a month on the legendary resistance of our forces against the Turkish occupation army and the terrorist organizations allied with it; Jabhet al-Nusra, IS and others and inflicting vast damage in the equipment, our units called for the Syrian government and its army to do their duty and participate in defending Afrin and protecting the Syrian border against this brutal invasion.
And the Syrian government met the calling and responded to the defence duty, and sent military units on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 to station on the border and participate in defending the unity of the Syrian lands and its border.”

Rex Tillerson has been reported in Asia Times has given permission to Turkish forces to come to Manbij - this is the duplicity we expect from the United States who is trying to keep SOB Erdogan on side and betray Kurds.
The YPG/SDF Kurdish forces have to make some difficult life or death decisions.
The situation in Afrin is fluid - with claims and counter claims about presence of Syrian forces.
The Report above from Syrian TV is firm evidence that Syrian forces are in Afrin.

Defend Peace - Japanese Communists should stop Shinzo Abe's drive to War and support Inter Korean Dialogue
Genuine Japanese Communists should support inter Korean dialogue and bring the Nippon Kaigi Japanese Imperialist lover Shinzo Abe to account.
Shinzo Abe is sabotaging inter Korean Dialogue and must be exposed for his warmongering.
PS Japanese Communists should drop their support for sanctions on North Korea and protect Japanese Koreans from Government witch hunt.
Do not play Shinzo Abe's anti DPRK game for the rebirth of Japanese Imperialism.

Democracy and Class Struggle welcomes the push back of Moon Jae in against Shinzo Abe the Nippon Kaigi warmonger SOB over the question of anti DPRK military exercises of US and South Korea and Japan.
However we are aware that for Moon Jae-in to stand against Japan and US over the military exercises will take considerable courage and determination - but if he did so he would write a new positive chapter in Korean History.

The Syrian government forces have yet to enter the Afrin region, despite previous reports by members of the National Defense Forces (NDF) via social media.
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – The Syrian government forces have yet to enter the Afrin region, despite previous reports by members of the National Defense Forces (NDF) via social media.
According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian government forces have remained at the towns of Al-Zahra’a and Nubl near the Afrin axis; however, they have not received orders to enter.
The source added that the only forces to enter Afrin from the government territories were members of the YPG from the Sheikh Maqsoud District of Aleppo city.
It appears the main issue blocking the government troops from entering Afrin is the agreed upon terms between Damascus and the YPG/PYD.
The YPG/PYD are not in favor of handing over their heavy weapons to the Syrian government, which would ultimately make Afrin under Damascus’ control.
For the Syrian government, the only way they will approve of their forces entering Afrin is to have the YPG surrender their heavy weapons.
