Char Siu Pork

Char siu pork is a classic Cantonese dish. This is a modern riff on the dish. Instead of using pork belly or pork butt, this recipe calls for pork tenderloin. The sauce is a mix of soy sauce, Chinese five spice, garlic, and ginger.

Adapted from Virginia Willis | Secrets of the Southern Table | Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018

This isn’t quite the traditional Chinese roasted pork recipe. It swaps the traditional indulgent pork butt or pork belly for learner pork tenderloin but tastes every iota as sweet and sticky and authentic as the real deal. See for yourself…

UK officials could soon begin burying radioactive waste under some of the country’s national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty, according to new plans backed by the British government.

Nuclear waste is currently being stored at above-ground facilities across the UK but it is hoped that deep geological burials will provide a long-term solution to the problem of mounting leftovers. The plans were published in January but have now been bolstered by the support of MPs on the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Select Committee.

Israeli Christian, Druze communities denounce ‘Jewish nation-state’ law

“On Sunday, the Catholic Church in the occupied city of Jerusalem al-Quds condemned the ‘nation-state’ law that cleared the Israeli parliament on July 19, The Times of Israel reported.

The Latin Patriarchate, which represents the Roman Catholic Church, said in a statement, ‘The law fails to provide any constitutional guarantees for the rights of the indigenous and other minorities living in the country.’

‘Palestinian citizens of Israel, constituting 20 percent are flagrantly excluded from the law,’ it added, citing an example.

‘It is beyond conception that a law with constitutional effect ignores an entire segment of the population as if its members never existed,’ the church said. ‘It sends an unequivocal signal to the Palestinian citizens of Israel, to the effect that in this country they are not at home.’

The legislation also violated international laws, the church said, calling on Christians to rise in protest against the legislation.”

“The law prioritizes ‘Jewish’ values over democratic ones, declares al-Quds the ‘capital’ of Israel, and sets Hebrew as the official language, relegating Arabic from an official language to one with ‘special status.’”

オウム事件より犠牲者多い日航ジャンボ機事件: 植草一秀の『知られざる真実』

“今年もあの日がやってくる”

“1987年6月19日に航空事故調査委員会は、同機が1978年6月2日に伊丹空港で起こしたしりもち着陸事故後のボーイング社修理が不適切であったために圧力隔壁が破損したことが事故原因であるとの報告書を公表した。

しかし、この報告は信用できない。

123便は外部からの衝撃で尾翼を失い、これが原因で操縦不能に陥った疑いが強い。

また、123便は横田基地に緊急着陸を検討した模様だが、着陸を断念したか、何らかの誘導により進路を山岳地帯に変更したうえで山岳地帯で墜落した可能性が高いと思われる。

それでも、123便墜落時には多数の乗客が生存していたと見られ、墜落直後に米軍機によって墜落場所が特定され、夜間の救助活動が可能であったはずだが、救助は行われなかった。

事故あるいは事件から33年が経過するいま、私たちは「知られざる真実」の解明を行う責務を負っている”

【PressTV】 iranian-diaspora.tumblr.com/post/176304189476

PressTV-To Trump: Hereby, I respond to you as a soldier:

Iran’s Major General Qassem Soleimani has sharply reacted to the recent “cabaret owner-style” military threat by US President Donald Trump against the Islamic Republic, saying he takes the position to respond “as a soldier” since it is beneath the dignity of Iran’s president to do so.

Addressing Trump, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said, “You threaten us with an action that is ‘unprecedented’ in the world. This is cabaret-style rhetoric. Only a cabaret owner talks to the world this way.”

He was reacting to Trump’s all-caps tweet addressed to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in which he threatened the Islamic Republic with actions “the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”

The tweet came after President Rouhani warned the US against its hostile approach against Iran, saying America should know that peace with Iran will be the mother of all peace while war with the country will be the mother of all wars.

PressTV-President Rouhani on war and peace with Iran

President Rouhani says the US should know peace with Iran will be the mother of all peace and war with the country will be the mother of all wars.

“It is beneath the dignity of our president to respond to you. I, as a soldier, respond to you,” Soleimani further said.

You already did all you could!

The senior general further reminded the United States of its failures in its invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

“What was it that you could do over the past 20 years but you didn’t? You came to Afghanistan with scores of tanks and personnel carriers and hundreds of advanced helicopters and committed crimes there. What the hell could you do between 2001 and 2018 with 110,000 troops? You are today begging Taliban for talks,” Major General Soleimani said.

The Iranian commander added, “Afghanistan was a poor country, what the hell could you do in this country that you are currently threatening us?”

“You arrogantly attacked Iraq with 160,000 troops and multiple times [military equipment] compared to what you used in Afghanistan, but what happened? Ask your then commander who was the person that he sent to me and asked ‘Is is possible for you to give us time [and] use your influence so that our soldiers would not be attacked by the Iraqi fighters in these few months  until we exit this country?’ Have you forgotten that you provided adult diapers for your soldiers in tanks? Despite that you are currently threatening the great country of Iran? With what background do you threaten [us]?”

“We are near you, where you can’t even imagine. We are the nation of martyrdom, we are the nation of Imam Hossein, you better ask. Come; we are ready. We are the man of this arena. You know that this war would mean annihilation of all your means. You may begin the war, but it is us who will end it,” he said.

In Yemen, Soleimani said, the US-backed coalition of Saudi Arabia and its allies has been incapable of making any gains against the country’s Houthi Ansarullah movement, which is both running state affairs and defending the nation against the Riyadh-led aggression.

“A mere organization is standing against you in Yemen, but it has emerged victorious in the face of the most advanced of your military equipment. What have you achieved over the past four years? You stripped the Red Sea – which used to be a safe sea – of security. You brought under fire Saudi Arabia and [its capital] Riyadh – which had not seen a single rocket fired at them for 100 years.”

The senior general further warned Trump against insulting the Iranian nation and president.

“Trump! You must not threaten our nation and must not insult our president… You must know what you are talking about; ask your predecessors and take advantage of their experiences,” General Soleimani emphasized.

PressTV-‘Crushing response awaiting US anti-Iran threats’

A senior Iranian military commander says the country’s Armed Forces are highly prepared to give a crushing response to any threat.

The senior military official also censured the US for supporting the most hated anti-Iran terror group, called the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), saying Washington failed to achieve anything by doing so.

The commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force said, “America had some grandeur in the past [and] when its fleet moved out, a nation fell apart. Have you now become attached to the Monafeqeen, who have been thrown in the trash bin of Iran’s history? You have become attached to a vagrant woman, and show her in all [your news] networks; is your hope pinned on this? Is this all your power? You are aware of our power in the region and capability for [launching] asymmetrical war?”
