overseas network November 14 electric u0026 nbsp; 7.8 magnitude earthquake Beijing on the 13th, Iran and Iraq at the junction occurs. According to the latest news from Iran’s state news agency, at least 530 people have been killed and thousands have been injured so far. The earthquake hit western Iran hit hard, with some 12,000 buildings collapsed in Kermanshah, causing the number of casualties to climb steadily within 24 hours of the disaster. It is reported that these collapsed buildings are less than 10 years old. The “affordable housing” subsidized by the Iranian government for the middle and lower class people is accused of being the culprit in the “murder of the people” because of the jerry-building. .
According to media reports citing Iranian media reports, the Iranian Red Crescent Society said that Sarpol-e-Zahab (Kermanshah), the most severely damaged region of Kermanshah, has about 12,000 Thousands of buildings collapsed. Of these destroyed buildings, many were less than 10 years old and were subsidized by the Iranian government for “affordable housing” for the middle and lower classes. These “Affordable Housing” come from a housing project launched by the Iranian government 10 years ago – the “Mehr housing project.”
The Empathy Plan is a housing policy promoted by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2007. Ahmadinejad demanded that the Iranian government provide land and settle the “empathy fund” in the form of cooperatives through bank intermediaries. On the one hand, Ahmadinejad wants the Iranian government to provide land for a 99-year lease at a low price to attract construction Business Invest To build a town; on the other hand, any Iranian citizen without real estate can apply for participation in the fund and obtain government loan-for-purchase and buy “limited-price” housing.

however, to promote the “empathy plan”, has had a devastating financial problems and acceptance. It is reported that due to the then Iran, a time when a large number of chartered business owners closed down, resulting in half of the house is not built to cut corners, hastily completed, is to build a business to escape, as will never be able to finish the waste site.
In addition, most of the housing projects are driven away from the barren state-owned land in the metropolitan area, which has limited help for the housing problems in the densely populated areas. Transport infrastructure with the metropolitan area, but also due to the budget breakdown and difficult to put in place, so the housing program has become a concentrated border patriarchal community.
Under various factors, Ahmadinejad’s housing plan only introduced a large number of low-cost condominiums and caused a serious budget deficit for the government. It was not until Hassan Rouhani took office in 2013 that he announced the suspension of subsequent housing plans.
It is reported that the hardest hit Kermanshah Province is the poorest administrative region in Iran and the promotion of affordable housing is also the most common. As can be seen from the pictures of the disaster areas, these affordable housing units collapsed. Therefore, Iranian domestic media also questioned: These jerry-built housing, is not to become a cliché murder of ordinary people “cement coffin”?

(Original title: Japanese media said the failure of the South China Sea policy: quite clumsy allegiance of China’s ally has lost its confidence _ “Reference News” official website)
According to Japanese media, the Japan Times website published an article on November 13 entitled Why the U.S. South China Sea Policy Has Failed. The author is a part-time senior scholar at the South China Sea Research Institute Mark J. Valencia. The article said that as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its dialogue partners gathered in the Philippines and held the annual political and security conference – the East Asia Summit – people are increasingly aware of the U.S. dispute over the South China Sea Has regretted that policy has failed. The U.S. policy community needs to recognize the shortcomings on these issues and learn from it.
According to what U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told the media in Beijing on 9 November, the United States position on the issue of the South China Sea is that “we uphold the freedom of navigation and the compliance by international countries with international law, and Outpost construction and militarization should be stopped. ”
The article states, however, that these goals have not yet been achieved except for the freedom of commercial navigation, which has never been and is not likely to be threatened. And, in the foreseeable future, under tactics that have also been tried but have failed, they are unlikely to come to fruition.
The article said that even if the United States stepped up its “navigational free exercise” exercise, China has not been deterred.
The article considers that the U.S. tactical and strategic failures are likely to continue for several reasons. First, its strategy depends in part on its coalition with ASEAN in supporting the United States in its opposition to China’s move in the South China Sea. However, with the ever-changing situation, the United States ally, the Philippines, has “betrayed” this effort and is now getting rid of the United States’ own dealings with China.
