Beheading will not intimidate US

Published

(bursa escort) — President Obama on Is Americans are repulsed by their barbarism, we will not be intimidated, their horrific acts only unite us

President Barack Obama has vowed the US will not be intimidated, after Islamic State militants released a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.

Another Western hostage is seen in the video, the BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner reports

Philip Hammond says the new video appears to show the same militant with an English accent

Mr Obama said the US strategy was to “try to ensure Isil is not an ongoing threat to the region”. Islamic State is also often referred to as Isil or Isis.

But Mr Obama warned such a strategy would take time and effort.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron told MPs the two American beheadings were “utterly abhorrent and barbaric”, adding: “We will not waver in our aim of defeating terrorism.”

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said: “We are doing everything we can to reassure the family of the British hostage who was shown in the video.”

Analysis: BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner

This second video from IS is significant, even though it was largely expected and dreaded. It shows that the recent US air strikes which have halted IS’s lightning advance across northern Iraq are causing the organisation real damage, upsetting its plans to extend by force its rule into Kurdistan.

Unable to hit back militarily against America’s jets, Islamic State has responded with a form of information warfare that it knows will horrify most people in the West.

Secondly, by threatening to murder a British hostage, IS shows it makes little or no distinction between the US and Britain as its enemy. This is despite Britain so far restricting itself to dropping aid to refugees and flying in supplies to the Kurdish military, leaving air strikes to the Americans.

A spokesman for the Sotloff family had earlier indicated they believed the video was genuine, issuing a statement that said: “The family knows of this horrific tragedy and is grieving privately. There will be no public comment from the family during this difficult time.”

US state department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said it was believed that “a few” other Americans were still being held by Islamic State.

Mr Sotloff, 31, who also held Israeli citizenship, was abducted in northern Syria in August 2013.

He had appeared in a video last month which showed James Foley being killed.

The latest video, entitled “A second message to America”, is about two-and-a-half minutes long and was apparently recorded in a desert.

Next to a masked figure, Mr Sotloff reads out a text addressed to President Obama saying: “You’ve spent billions of US taxpayers’ dollars and we have lost thousands of our troops in our previous fighting against the Islamic State, so where is the people’s interest in reigniting this war?”

The militant spoke with a British accent similar to that of the man who appeared to carry out the beheading of James Foley.

Mr Hammond told the BBC it seemed to be the same person.

US media reaction

Writing in the New York Times, Thomas L Friedman warns that the US strategy on Islamic State must avoid the “fire, ready, aim” approach that followed the 9/11 attacks. He says: “There are no words to describe the vileness of the video beheadings of two American journalists by ISIS, but I have no doubt that they’re meant to get us to overreact, a la 9/11, and rush off again without a strategy. ISIS is awful, but it is not a threat to America’s homeland.”

The Wall St Journal and Washington Post carry tributes from Mr Sotloff’s friends and colleagues. His former Time editor Ishaan Tharoor praises the “breadth and commitment of his work” across many Middle East countries.

Writing in the Boston Globe, Farah Stockman says: “We couldn’t save Sotloff. But we can ensure that his death… was not in vain. He risked his life knowingly, so the rest of us could understand a terrible war better – so that the rest of us could read more, think more, and understand more about Syria. We owe it to him to do just that.”

The man says: “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State… despite our serious warnings.”

He also threatens to kill the British hostage shown in the footage. The family of the British hostage have asked the media not to release his name

Islamic State has seized large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria in recent months, declaring a new caliphate, or Islamic state, under leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi

The US has launched more than 120 air strikes in the past month to try to help Kurdish forces curb the IS advance.

After the latest video emerged, Mr Obama ordered the deployment of another 350 troops to Baghdad to protect US diplomatic facilities.

Extinct plant discovered in amber

Published

on

Biologists have referred to a brand new types of extinct plant according to two fossil flowers which were held in portions of amber not less than 15 million years

Strychnos electri goes towards the genus whose tropical bushes trees and vines are renowned for creating the deadly contaminant strychnine

The United States scientists referred to it as following the Greek word for amber (elektron) – the fossilised resin of lengthy-dead trees

Their discovery seems within the journal Character Plants

The 2 flowers were among 500 fossils collected on the 1986 area visit to Professor George Poinar of Or Condition College

Prof Poinar is really a famous entomologist and many of these individuals were bugs But after nearly 3 decades focusing on the bugs his eye chosen the flowers

These were remarkably complete – unlike most plant fossils present in amber that are usually just fragments

In 2015 he sent high-resolution photos to Professor Lena Struwe at Rutgers College

Most likely poisonous

These flowers appeared as if they’d just fallen from the tree stated Prof Poinar I figured they could be Strychnos and that i sent these to Lena since i understood she was a specialist for the reason that genus

Prof Struwe go about evaluating the physique from the flowers to any or all 200 known Strychnos species brushing the collections of multiple museums and herbaria

The figures mostly accustomed to identify types of Strychnos are flower morphology and thats what we should fortunately have with this fossil stated Prof Struwe

I checked out each specimen of ” New World ” species captured pics of and measured it and in comparison it towards the photo George sent me I requested myself How can the fur around the flower petals look? Where would be the fur situated? and so forth

For that creatures from the late cretaceous S electri was most likely not so good eating

Types of the genus Strychnos are nearly all toxic in some manner stated Prof Poinar

Each plant features its own alkaloids with different effects Many are more toxic than the others also it might be that they are effective as their poisons offered some defence against herbivores

The favourite such alkaloid strychnine is really a contaminant that when created the foundation of numerous rat poisons – in addition to being certainly one of Norman Batess murder weapons within the Alfred Hitchcock movie Psycho

However these plants also fall inside the asterid family including greater than 80000 flowering plants including most of the ones humans eat from taters and mint to sunflowers and coffees

The brand new discovery is an important accessory for the fossil record of the family that is very poorly understood
