Leaders in the Catholic Church has been summoned by Pope Francis to discuss, sexual abuse in the Church.   The coming together is intended to push sexual abuse back out into the center of the table.   Tony Stith of Chicago pointed out abuse of the Catholic Church in collaboration with the State of Illinois in early 2000.  The nut cracked open fully in 2002, under Pope John Paul Benedict when hundreds of cases were shelved.  Benedict is now retired – as pope he disciplined hundreds of priests for sexual misconduct. 

The confluence is scheduled for 21 February through 24 according to the Vatican.  In a statement, the Pontiff admits to “amply reflected,” on the issue.  This marks the first time since 2000, that church leaders across the world will gather to discuss the sex abuse crisis.

The US siting president may be slick in business, but he is having a more difficult time duping the leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un.  In a recent talk with Russia, he said he has no plans to denuclearize.   He openly discussed believing the US is “plotting war with a smile.”    He instead said he was waiting for the West to respond to steps he has already taken. 

Valentina Matvienko, the Kremlin’s speaker of the upper house of Russian’s parliament said he met with the North Korean leader on Saturday.   She reported that she wanted Russian backing in sanctions on North Korea while concerning himself with the possibility of World War III.

The US claims to have struck an agreement with the North to denuclearize earlier this year according to the White House, but this seems to run contrary to what Kim is saying.

Ayatollah Khamenei has made clear his stance on the flailing nuclear agreement.  The supreme leader warned the country might walk away from its nuclear deal with western world powers in a statement that seems he’s losing faint in the European states to save the accord after US withdrawal. 

In a closed door meeting with President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday with his cabinet said, [they] “should give up on hope on [Europe] over economic issues or the nuclear deal.”   He continued, "The nuclear deal is a means, not the goal, and if we come to this conclusion that it does not serve our national interests, we can abandon it."

In May the Ayatollah offered a set of conditions for Western powers if they wanted to keep the Middle Eastern country in the deal.  They included bank trade safeguards with Tehran and Iranian oil sales.

China has developed and announced the world’s first electromagnetic surface to surface rocket that offers superior firing range and could give its military and advantage in high altitude regions around the globe.

The systems details include a precise range and deployment schedule but other details remain unclear.  

The power generated from an electromagnetic rockets differ from conventional rockets rely on explosive powder for the initial push. The new rockets will be launched using electromagnetic force, akin to a catapult launch.  Both the US and China are developing for their next generation ballistics.
