By Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo August 11, 2017 Es necesario que nuestras Fuerzas Armadas de Mexico promueven los principios humanitarios pues tendran mejores tÃ©cnicas y procedimientos de uso de la fuerza y derechos humanos en tareas de seguridad pÃºblica, mil felicitaciones a los soldados. Una buena manera de hacer amistad y relaciones exteriores a nivel Fuerzas Armadas felicidadez en jeneral al ejercito mexicano., siempre preocupados y ocupador por brindar lo mejor de ellos. Las Fuerzas Armadas son un gran ejemplo para la ciudadanÃa, asÃ que hay que promover la humanitarios para lograr la confianza de las personas y que mejor que poniendo el ejemplo ante las demÃ¡s instituciones. Within the framework of a cooperation agreement between El Salvador, the Mexican Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA, per its Spanish acronym), and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Salvadoran Ministry of National Defense (MDN, per its Spanish acronym) trained Mexican Army personnel through its “Instructor Training on the Use of Force and Humanitarian Principles” program. During the event, Salvadoran Army Captain Bielman Aníbal Magaña provided guidance to 30 Mexican troops on the best techniques and procedures on the use of force and human rights in public security work. The course was held June 23rd-30th at SEDENA’s Military Camp No. 1-A in Mexico City. “Through this collaboration, ICRC recognizes the efforts of FAES [Armed Force of El Salvador, per its Spanish acronym] in terms of human rights. It is a compliment to have supported a partner like Mexico,” Salvadoran Army Lieutenant Colonel Luis Orlando Pérez, the head of the Human Rights Department of the Ministry of National Defense (MDN, per its Spanish acronym), told Diálogo. “This confirms that we are on the right path to compliance with international instruments.” The training course is one of the activities conducted by ICRC in conjunction with the security and armed forces of the Central American region. At the same time, partner nations in the region have developed training and integrated international standards on the use of force over the past three years. During the course, Mexican military members bolstered their basic theoretical and practical knowledge on the use of force and firearms, force and violence, resistance and aggression, and using non-lethal weapons and technology to safeguard the most precious legal right there is — life. “We should always have a way to be able to control the aggressor with the means and techniques we have been taught,” Lt. Col. Pérez said. “These types of actions help in criminal control and pacification in the region,” José Misael Rivas Soriano, a security analyst and dean of the Legal and Social Sciences Department of the New San Salvador University, told Diálogo. “Knowledge of humanitarian standards and academic conceptualization are key aspects to allowing the armed forces to properly fulfill their assignments.” Preventing violations At the start of the course, Lt. Col. Pérez led a conference on the importance of human rights training and the role of the armed forces in public security. Mexican chiefs and officers strengthened their knowledge on the challenges facing FAES in terms of human rights, doctrine, training, lessons learned, and best practices. Attendees participated in a series of analyses to improve the training and application of international standards of humanitarian law and the use of force, a commitment that comprises the Geneva Conventions, which Mexico and El Salvador are parties to. “Any public servant responsible for ensuring compliance with the law needs to understand and be trained on the application of, and compliance with human rights and the use of force, as well as the use of firearms to avoid infringements during the different activities they carry out,” Lt. Col. Pérez emphasized. “This is the first time that the Human Rights Department of MND is participating on this issue with SEDENA,” he added. In 1993, the military authority also outlined an institution-based role for FAES in support of public security. According to Lt. Col. Pérez, support was strengthened in 2009 due to the social problems facing El Salvador, such as drug, human, and weapons trafficking, contraband, border issues, maras, and gangs, which are considered terrorists by the Salvadoran government since August 2015. “All the procedures carried out by FAES, such as joint preventive patrols, anti-crime work, and support at border crossings is done in coordination with the police,” Lt. Col. Pérez said. The Salvadoran government says that FAES support is important for reducing homicide. Cooperation to speak the same language El Salvador’s Ministry of Defense is not only a member of ICRC, but it also participates in other forums. At the end of August, the institution will participate in the twentieth anniversary of the U.S. Southern Command’s (SOUTHCOM) Human Rights Initiative, in Miami, Florida. “The cooperative relationship among SOUTHCOM and the armed forces of El Salvador and Mexico is excellent. Thanks to that, we can have these kinds of important activities,” Lt. Col. Pérez said. “We know that the threats in Latin America, mainly in the Northern Triangle countries and Mexico, are similar. It is necessary to maintain closer ties so that at any given moment we are speaking the same language in terms of human rights.” “The famous Northern Triangle is specifically where drug trafficking and transnational organized crime organizations develop their main strategy on how they will harm society in general,” added Rivas. “They are the dregs of society and have attached themselves as if they were part of the fabric of each country,” he concluded.

A flyout by Brian Dozier should have ended the inning. Instead Stewart pitched to Zach Granite with two outs and allowed an RBI double, scoring Castro. Joe Mauer followed with a two-run single and the Dodgers trailed 3-0 after three.In the fourth inning Stewart got two quick outs before he walked Castro. Santana then hit a sharp ground ball to second base that Logan Forsythe could not field cleanly, his third error of the season. Stewart had reached his pitch limit. Ross Stripling took over in search of the third out.A passed ball — Stripling and Grandal appeared to get their signals crossed — allowed both Castro and Santana to move up. Brian Dozier then hit a double to drive in both runners, giving Minnesota a 5-0 lead.“I thought I was pretty efficient for the first two innings and change,” Stewart said. “When things didn’t go my way I kind of made some bad two-strike pitches. I’ve got to do a better job of bearing down in those moments.”Stewart started in place of the injured Clayton Kershaw, who was placed on the disabled list after straining a muscle in his back Sunday. The 25-year-old right-hander hadn’t allowed a run in 13 innings out of the Dodgers’ bullpen this season.Solo home runs by Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig against Santana chipped into the Twins’ lead in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively. Santana was knocked out in the seventh inning, when Chase Utley’s two-run double off the wall brought the Dodgers within 5-4.Santana was charged with four runs in 6 2/3 innings in his first appearance at Dodger Stadium since 2007.The Dodgers were trailing 5-4 in the eighth inning when Turner drew a leadoff walk against left-hander Taylor Rogers. With one out, Kiké Hernandez delivered a pinch-hit single against Twins closer Brandon Kintzler, sending Turner to third base.Forsythe flew out to Granite, the center fielder, for the second out. When Hernandez ran most of the way toward second base, Granite not-so-cleverly tried to double him up at first. The only problem: nobody was covering the base. Turner scored easily from third as the ball bounced into the Twins’ dugout, tying the score.The Dodgers had only 11 position players active for the game. All of them reached base except for first baseman Cody Bellinger, who went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts.Austin Barnes, the last man on the bench, led off the ninth inning with a single against Kintzler. He went to second base on an infield single by Chris Taylor. Both runners moved up on a groundout before Turner poked a single through the left side of the infield with two outs, scoring Barnes to end the game.Was Turner surprised he didn’t receive an intentional walk with first base open and the struggling Bellinger on deck?“I don’t think anyone on the planet wants to pitch to Cody in a big spot right now,” Turner said.The Dodgers will enjoy an off day Thursday before hosting the San Francisco Giants for three games beginning Friday. The trade deadline is 1 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday.If the Dodgers’ front office needs a reason to stand pat at the deadline, Dodger Stadium hosted 50,941 announced witnesses who can testify to the team’s good mojo.“It’s not exact recipes,” said Turner, who collected three hits and played every inning of the series while taking medication for bronchitis. “It’s a different way every night. Whether we’re down to our last strike or whatever, it’s a lot of guys believing. If we still have outs, we’re still in the game and you’re seeing the results.” LOS ANGELES >> The days and weeks leading to baseball’s trade deadline can be a time of fear and loathing. For players, fear that trades will be made to meet the challenge of winning a World Series. For a front office, loathing the process of deciding how to enhance the roster.At 71-31, the Dodgers own a better record through 102 games than all but two teams since the 1969 expansion season. They won a game in their final at-bat Wednesday for the eighth time this season, 6-5 over the Minnesota Twins, on an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning by Justin Turner. If there is any fear and loathing in Chavez Ravine, it is absent during the nine innings the Dodgers play baseball. Players and coaches pay the obligatory lip service, saying they don’t need any trades to be baseball’s best team. More significantly, though, this is how the Dodgers play.“It’s special,” pitcher Brock Stewart said. “You can’t really put it into words. It’s like we know we’re going to win every game. That’s what it comes down to. It’s a special time and everybody knows it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Consider the reasons for their confidence.The Dodgers have swept 13 series, the most in the major leagues. They are 40 games over .500, including a 36-6 record since June 7. No National League West team is within 12½ games of first place. The Dodgers can play .500 baseball the remainder of the season and still win 101 games, something they haven’t done since 1974.“I think it’s one of those things where, this is who we are,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “People talk about riding a wave and when will it stop? I think the process is in place, and the process is to play 27 outs until the end.”Stewart pitched 3 2/3 innings Wednesday and did not allow an earned run, but left with a 5-0 deficit by virtue of two early errors.With one out in the third inning, Twins catcher Jason Castro lined a single into right field. Pitcher Ervin Santana was the next batter and squared up to bunt. He dropped a dribbler in front of home plate. Rather than try for the easy out at first base, catcher Yasmani Grandal threw wide of his target at second base. Initially ruled a fielder’s choice, the play was later scored an error.
