Its something of a miracle that the weather has been holding long enough to enable the #ThaiCaveRescue to take place. The monsoon season is settling in all around the mountains where the caves are. /1
These images show forecast rain fall over the next 18 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours in Thailand & the latest forecast. /2
Beyond the next two days the rain just doesn't stop. Here's an animation of rain for the next fortnight. The purple colour indicates rainfall of a foot (300mm) or more. /3
Including in the area near the cave complex. These two closeups show left 1 weeks rain, and right two weeks in Chiang Rai province. /4 #ThaiCaveResue
Here is the animation showing Monsoon rain accumulations over India and SEA over the next fortnight. The total rain fall levels are extraordinary. /5

Everything about this @ABC news report is fishy. It was rushed into publication on Friday Night shortly after the #Unity4J vigil was started. The video in the header is more than a year old & only today did they add the audio of the IV with Assange's lawyer. /1
The story itself is full of blatant misinformation which might as well have been written by the CIA or State Dept, the rebuttal from Assange's lawyer - filmed last week - was added today to the already published story so clumsily that it breaks the layout. /2
Two video tweets have been added, the one above and this one, which has been tweeted three times. /3

Obama is addressing the world.... right now....
And he is talking about how real power is exercised in the world. /2
Their decisions (to do bad things) are often done without malice, but too often these decisions are often made without reference to humanity, or to the consequences for ordinary people. /3

Trump Putin Summit Hangover - The Morning After

THREAD >>
Trump demanded this summit. It was his plan, took place against advice – especially the bit where he agreed to meet in private with Putin. And it ended as monumental own goal for both Russia and Trump.
Yesterday Trump did to himself what nobody has been able to do, and nothing he has hitherto managed to do: he has made the GOP shy away from him. He also managed to frighten away a many of his Fox cheerleaders.

This is a lie. And @CNN's "exchange of fire" is also inaccurate. Israel bombed Gaza. Gaza retaliated. And now Israel is bombing some more....
"Hamas and Islamic Jihad announced a cease-fire late Saturday night following regional and international mediation efforts after the most serious and widespread flare-up between Israel and Palestinian fighters in Gaza since the 2014 war."  /14
Nested below are two tweets of the @CNN report, the earlier version from @CNNbrk the latest version of the Gaza escalation story now leads with the ceasefire. [The @haaretzcom and @CNN reports of todays events are both updates of earlier reports.] /15

Trump's visit to the NATO summit over the past day has been a confusing affair. A typical Trumpian press conference held around midday today bears little relation to both reality, nor what happened at the summit. /1
After a series of bellicose tweets berating NATO members for not spending enough money on defence (many containing falsehoods) the summit began very badly with this on camera attack on Germany. /2
In response to Trump's repeated attack on NATO the US Senate last night EU time unanimously passed a resolution reaffirming the NATO relationship. /3
