Northern Manchuria was given to Mongolia as a gift by the Soviet Union, after the Mongolians helped the Soviets drive Japanese forces out of there. It was also meant to give Mongolia coastal territory, to aid its seemingly barren and landlocked original. Mongolian is the official language, and it is written in the Mongolian script - which is a unique form of writing descended from Uyghur script and is written vertically. There is also a Mongolian Cyrillic alphabet that was implemented during the Soviet era, until the government of the People's Republic of Mongolia re-introduced Classical Mongolian in 1975 and made it the official writing system, as the Soviets were not culturally repressive towards Mongolians as a result of their aid against foreign enemies of the Soviet Union. It is still used by overseas Mongols living in Russia, who often or not learn it alongside Classical Mongolian, as well as Mongolians who lived during the days of Soviet rule.

?/?/2018 - Ever since signing the Safe and Secure Society Act, over 378,000 American citizens have been detained, as they are seen as being mentally ill and dangerous, another 2,530,000 are currently being evaluated.

So what is this act? The act requires all American citizens to be mentally evaluated, all citizens are required to attend therapy and meditation sessions at weekly intervals.

Due to the high number of car crimes, over 701,000 vehicles have been confiscated, either temporarily or permanently from individuals deemed mentally unfit to own one.

In addition, Trump is now working with surveillance firms to attach street cameras at every stoplight and street corner.

So far, crime and rape has drastically reduced.

Trump offered a simple ultimatum to those who refused, get out. 

Jonathan McLoughlin, a DHS officer tasked with leading the enforcement stated, "There, were simply many that refused. There are many more we haven't caught, we will find them."

Trump stated the importance of mental health in the United States, however, many Republicans were not fond of it. 

McLoughlin revealed that the detained were all males, who came from troubled backgrounds with a history of abuse, toxic masculinity and violence.

Most of them refused simple due to the belief that the violence they endured and endorse, is normal.

12/19/2018 - Today, five ISIS members have been captured in a joint mission consisting of Russian and Turkish special forces, and members of the South Syrian armed forces in South Syria.

Although Turkey and North Syria still remain allies, the Turkish government a couple months ago stated that it would halt all support for any North Syrian offensives into South Syria. 

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in a phone call to South Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, stated that, "The military and government of the Republic of Turkey is ready to assist the Syrian Arab Republic and the United Russian Republics in fighting terrorist and opposition groups."

Despite joining the SCO, and complaining about Russian rejection of Turkey as an ally, Turkey has been busy, cooperating with Russia, not China. Turkish and Russian soldiers have been busy in South Syria conducting anti-terrorist sweeps, and a number of prisoners have been caught and sent to Russian jails.

Russian and Turkish forces were called by South Syrian law enforcement, concerned about suspicious activity at a factory in Damascus. A two-hour long firefight ensued between South Syrian forces and the alleged terrorist groups, until the arrival of Russian and Turkish forces, a combination of airborne paratroopers and special forces, to raid the Damascus compound.

General Fyodor Orlov led the Russian forces, along with Turkish general Cevdet Baybaşin, and South Syrian general Sadir al-Hamid.

1/1/19 - Today, Albanian president Jetlir Rexha started the New Year with a bang, promising Albanians a "newer and brighter future".

"To the people of Albania, our country has been ruled by terrorists, by mafia, and by oligarchs who could care less about the suffering of the citizens of Albania. Let me make something clear, a new age is here for Albania, terrorists and criminals will no longer run our nation, only patriots will. In have five words, get in, or get out. It's that simple. This is my New Year message, to Albania and to the world."

1/8/19 - Today, Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper blasted far-right and Christian right groups in the province of Alberta wanting to halt the building of mosques in Edmonton.

He stated, "This isn't the United States, and the Conservative Party of Canada does not run on hateful ideology. Canada isn't a country where being a Conservative means being a fascist. So as far as I'm concerned, the construction of mosques in Edmonton will continue."

The Premier of Alberta, Joseph Mackenzie, thus so far, has not said anything about the issue.

Harper also blasted claims about "threatening Canada's European and Christian heritage ".

"I don't know what these hotheads are referring to when they mean a destruction of Canada's Christian and European heritage, all churches in Canada receive utmost protection, the same protection as historical and heritage sights. So do mosques, synagogues, Atheist convention centers, and what have you."

3/1/19 - Today Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated that he plans on leaving the Justice and Development Party, known also by the Turkish acronym the AKP, in a rather shocking, but not shocking announcement.

However, the reaction was not met well in Turkey, but President Erdoğan stated that, "...there needs to be a reconciliation between being a Muslim, a proud Muslim indeed, which is what I am, and keeping Turkey a democratic state, and the Justice and Development Party just does not have that. We need to be proud Muslims, but also respect the significance and history of the Eastern Orthodox and Christian faiths. or citizens of Turkey who have no faith. What matters are those who will do good for the Republic of Turkey, not what some Caliph wants him or her to do."

Many suspect that President Erdoğan's decision to leave the AKP is politically motivated, so that countries such as Russia, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Romania, former Ottoman territories and self-proclaimed "Christian states" (Eastern Orthodox to be specific) that do not take kindly to Islamist regimes, would be open to an allyship with Turkey.

Turkey has cut practically all ties with its former allies, such that of Saudi Arabia, North Syria and the Kosovo Liberation Army, as Turkey finds new alles in Russia and China, to which, Turkey is a member of the Chinese-led Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, after getting rejected from the Russian-led Cooperation Security Treaty Organization, or the CSTO to which Ankara promised both Moscow and Beijing know that Turkey would not use its position in the SCO to provoke any hostilities against Russia or its allies.

Therefore, Turkey did not station troops in Georgia, an SCO candidate member, nor did it aid Ukraine in its month-long war against Russia, though China did.

Recently, President Erdoğan has been pushing for President Vladimir Birčević of Yugoslavia to be open to a friendship with Turkey, much like the way Russia, its long-time ally, has.
