In Latest Escalation, Australia May Join US, Send Warships To China Islands

Australian defense planners are looking at the possibility of a naval sail-through close to China’s artificial islands in the South China Sea, in case the government decides to follow its close ally the U.S. in testing Beijing’s territorial claims.

“Australia has been looking at options,” said one official in Australia’s military familiar with operational planning.

Who are the Terrorists? US Intends “Direct Action on the Ground” in Iraq and Syria, In Support of ISIS…

It bears repeating and stressing what other articles explained. Washington uses ISIS and other takfiri terrorists as US foot soldiers in Syria, Iraq and wherever else they’re deployed.

In over a year of US bombing both countries, zero ISIS targets were struck – infrastructure and other government sites only. Claims otherwise are Big Lies about Obama’s wars in both countries.

Last year, he promised no “American combat troops fighting on foreign soil. We will not get dragged into another ground war” – another of his many Big Lies.

Last week, White House spokesman Eric Schultz said he has “no intention to authorize long-term, large-scale ground combat operations like our nation has conducted in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Middle East analyst Phyllis Bennis told RT International: “I think the question of US boots on the ground has been true for over a year now. We’ve had at least 35,000 troops in Iraq that went back last year (2014).”

Fighter Jets Track Military Blimp Drifting Over Pennsylvania

North American Aerospace Defense Command officials tell NBC News that an unmanned Army surveillance blimp that tore loose from its ground tether in Maryland and drifted north is now 16,000 feet over Wilmington, Pennsylvania.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Worse, the tether broke at the bottom end and is being dragged behind the blimp knocking out power lines. In theory a couple dozen men should be able to grab the tether to get the blimp under control if they can ahead of it in its path, but so far there is no report of such an attempt.

US to send admiral to China for talks

The commander of the US Pacific Command is expected to visit China for talks with the Chinese military in early November after a US warship came close to Chinese reefs on Tuesday and drew harsh warnings from Beijing.

Admiral Harry Harris will be sent by the US military to China on Monday, where he will hold talks with top Chinese military officials to discuss bilateral military exchanges, a US military officer was quoted by Japanese public broadcaster NHK as saying on Wednesday.

JLENS blimp breaks free of tether in Aberdeen

One of the two blimps that has been floating over Aberdeen has come off its tether, Aberdeen Proving Ground officials confirms.

Officials said the break occurred around 11:54 a.m. According to the North American Aerospace Defense Command, two F-16 fighter jets from the Atlantic City Air National Guard Base in New Jersey are monitoring the blimp, which was holding at approximately 16,000 feet in the air.

NORAD said it is working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure air traffic safety.

Is War Beautiful?

"War Is Beautiful" is the ironic title of a beautiful new book of photographs. The subtitle is "The New York Times Pictorial Guide to the Glamour of Armed Conflict."

The author never explains why he read the New York Times to begin with.

The Pentagon on Thursday pledged “utmost care” for the remains of fallen soldiers following a report that the remains of at least 274 troops were dumped in a Virginia landfill.

The report, in The Washington Post, revealed that the Air Force used the landfill far more frequently than had previously been acknowledged. The practice was ended three years ago.

“The secretary is aware of this media report and remains committed to the utmost care for our fallen heroes and their families,” George Little, spokesman for Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, said in a statement.

In a bitter twist, by making these accusations directed against Moscow, the Obama Administration candidly acknowledges what has been known from the outset: the presence of Western forces inside Syria in support of Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists. Lest we forget, this constitutes an undeclared act of war against a sovereign country in violation of international law (Nuremberg). Amply documented, from the outset of the Syrian insurgency, Western special forces and covert intelligence agents including British SAS, French Parachutistes, CIA, MI6 and Mossad have integrated rebel ranks. Their activities are not limited to training.

JK Rowling condemns ‘brutal’ Israeli govt, but rejects cultural boycott

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has spoken out against the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians, but upheld her opposition to the cultural and academic boycott of the country because it would “silence” important voices.

The author made the statements after fans used characters from her famous wizarding books to condone the Israeli boycott.

“The Palestinian community has suffered untold injustice and brutality. I want to see the Israeli government held to account for that injustice and brutality,” she wrote.

“Boycotting Israel on every possible front has its allure. It satisfies the human urge to do something, anything, in the face of horrific human suffering.”

But Rowling added that “refusing to engage” with the Israeli community would create “immovable barriers.”

Pentagon funding bill on Obama’s desk: $600 mln to Syrian rebels, $300 mln to Kiev

The defense funding bill for 2016 includes some lavish support to rebels in Syria and lethal aid to the current Ukrainian government. Although President Barack Obama is at loggerheads with lawmakers over some of the provisions, they are likely to remain.

Obama has threatened to veto the $612 billion National Defense Authorization Act – also known as House Resolution 1735, or the NDAA – because it contains provisions blocking the plans to shut down the detention camp at the US base in Guantanamo Bay, and because it avoids a cap on defense spending by padding a special account reserved for bankrolling wars. The Senate passed the NDAA on Wednesday with a veto-proof majority.

The Empire of Chaos is in a Jam

The no-fly zone in Syria already exists. It is run by Russia and Washington is unable to jam it.

NATO is desperate. The Pentagon is desperate. Imagine waking up one day in Washington and Brussels just to realize Russia has the ability to electronically jam — detect, trace, disable, destroy — NATO electronics within a 600 km range across Syria (and southern Turkey).

Imagine the nightmare of row after row of Russian Richag-AV radar and sonar jamming systems mounted on helicopters and ships jamming everything in sight and finding every available source of electromagnetic radiation. Not only in Syria but also in Ukraine.

The Russian army asserts its superiority in conventional warfare

Moscow’s military intervention in Syria has not simply overturned the fortunes of war and spread panic throughout the ranks of the jihadist groups. It has also shown the rest of the world the current capacities of the Russian army in situations of real warfare. To everyone’s astonishment, it has proved to possess a system of signal jamming capable of rendering the Atlantic Alliance deaf and blind. Despite a far superior budget, the United States have just lost their military domination.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US lost its domination because it spent all that money re-building the weapons that won the last war, such as carriers, while Russia (and others) moved into the 21st Century and rethought how wars will be fought.

Confederate soldier Julius Howell Interview What The south Fought For

Confederate soldier Julius Howell talking about his capture and imprisonment at the Union prison camp at Point Lookout, Md. Howell was born in 1846 near the Holy Neck section of Suffolk, in the Holland area. He was the youngest of 16 children, the son of a prominent Baptist minister. His daddy wouldn't allow him to join the army until he was 16½, he says in his account.
He saw action guarding the Blackwater River against Yankees until his regiment was called to help defend Richmond in 1864. By then, he was a corporal and courier for two generals.

In April 1865, Howell was taken prisoner at the battle of Sailor's Creek and was transported to Point Lookout, Md., a notorious Union prison. He was there when he heard about the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

Strategic Engineered Migration as Weapon of War

Researchers have discovered a very interesting fact related to the use of social networking sites. It has come to light that calls on Twitter for refugees to travel to Germany have mostly come from the US. The time spent practising in other countries has not been in vain – from Iran during the 2009 presidential elections to Egypt and Tunisia, where the role played by social networking sites in mobilising the population was considerable.

What we are seeing now is the practical implementation of theoretical calculations of a strategic nature. Such strategies have been under development for a long time. One of them is a study by the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University that bears the name “Strategic Engineered Migration as a Weapon of War“, which the author also uses for the title of this article. The study was first published in 2008 in the Civil Wars journal. Using a combination of statistical data and case study analysis, the author of the work, Kelly Greenhill, provides answers to the following questions: can refugees be a specific type of weapon, can this weapon only be used in wartime or in peacetime as well, and just how successful can its exploitation be? On the whole, Greenhill answers these questions in the affirmative.

Busted! Israeli IDF Colonel Arrested In Iraq for Leading ISIS Militants

Oct 27 12:40


When analyzing geopolitics it’s important to try and skate ahead of the puck, so to speak. That is, while it’s useful to understand what’s going on now, it’s even more imperative to analyze the situation in an attempt to understand how the situation is likely to evolve going forward. As it relates to the Mid-East, that means looking past Syria and on to Iraq. As we’ve outlined in great detail of late, there’s every reason to suspect that Russia will expand its airstrikes across the Syrian border and indeed, Baghdad has reportedly given Moscow the go-ahead to hit ISIS convoys fleeing Syria into Iraqi territory. This is in direct contradiction to what PM Haider al-Abadi told Gen. Joseph Dunford last week and suggests that Baghdad is about to pivot East, after becoming frustrated with a lack of results stemming from more than a year of US airstrikes against Islamic State targets.

A New War May Be Brewing in the Balkans

It’s been nearly 20 years since the Dayton Accord put an end to the bloody war in the Balkans, which killed over 140,000 people after the Yugoslav government collapsed. However, there are rumblings in the nation of Bosnia and Herzegovina that are threatening to reignite the conflict.

As part of the Dayton Accord, two independent entities were created within the nation of Bosnia: the Bosniak-Croat Federation and the largely Serb Republika Sprska. The government in Sprska is planning to unveil a referendum on the anniversary of the Dayton Accord. There will be a single question on the ballot that will ask their citizens if they support the legality of their current union with the Bosniak-Croat Federation. Many are calling the question a veiled independence referendum that will give the president of Sprska permission to obstruct the laws and institutions of the central government.

Now Saudi Arabia Has Bombed a Doctors Without Borders Hospital in Yemen

The US changed its story four times (at least) on why it bombed a civilian hospital staffed by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) otherwise known as Doctors Without Borders, in Kunduz, Northern Afghanistan earlier this month. Twenty two people died, including 12 staffers and 10 patients (three of whom were children) — and injuring 37 other people. Twenty four staff are still missing.

Now news just broke that Saudi Arabia bombed another Doctors Without Borders hospital last night, this time in northern Yemen.

Luckily only two doctors were "lightly wounded" and no one died this time. Reportedly everyone had just enough time to run to safety before another missile hit the maternity ward.

This is, yet another, war crime, and pretty much everybody knows it.

But they just keep justifying it by claiming terrorists might be hiding in these hospitals, so they have no choice but to bomb hospitals.

Gee. Kinda makes you wonder who the terrorists really are.

Beijing Summons U.S. Ambassador Over U.S. Navy Patrol

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui summoned U.S. Ambassador to China Max Baucus on Tuesday, lodging "serious representations" and expressing "strong discontent" over a U.S. warship patrol in waters near China's Nansha Islands in the South China Sea.

"This action by the United States threatens China's sovereignty and security interests and endangers the safety of personnel and facilities on the reef, which is a serious provocation," Zhang said.

Earlier on Tuesday, USS Lassen entered waters near Zhubi Reef without the permission of the Chinese government.

Zhang noted that it had done so regardless of China's earlier dissuasion. China is "strongly discontented with and firmly against" the move, he said.

Military Veterans Have 50 Percent [Increased] Chance To Develop Motor Neurone Disease

People who served in the military have a 50 percent increased risk of developing an incurable neurodegenerative illness called Motor Neurone Disease (MND), a new study says.

This disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), is a progressive disease that attacks the central nervous system, leading to the death of upper and lower motor neurons. These neurons are responsible for easy daily activities like gripping, walking, speaking, swallowing and even breathing.

In 2003, a similar study was conducted and linked military service with the development of MND. In fact, they found out that there is an increased risk of developing the disease for military veterans who served in the Gulf.

BEX Alert!!! - "20,000 Israelis sue Facebook over Palestinian calls to kill Jews"

A huge class-action lawsuit has been brought against Facebook in Israel, with the plaintiffs alleging the social medium failed to monitor and delete posts on Palestinian accounts inciting hatred towards Jews. The reaction from Facebook is pending.

The suit alleges that Facebook has a “legal and moral obligation” to sanitize posts instigating Palestinians to stage attacks Israelis, because the social network is “far from a neutral or passive social media platform and cannot claim it is a mere bulletin board for other parties’ postings.”

“Facebook’s refusal to remove the flood of extremist videos, statements and cartoons being posted by Palestinians is encouraging imminent violence and fanning the flames of the terrorist attacks that have overwhelmed Israel in the past month,” it says, coming to the conclusion that “Facebook’s algorithms and platform connects inciters to terrorists who are further encouraged to perpetrate stabbings and other violence attacks against Israelis.”

Thousands March against US-NATO War Games in Italy and Spain

Thousands of anti-war protesters in Italy and Spain have taken to streets to express opposition to war games conducted in their respective countries by the US-led NATO military alliance.

The demonstrators carried banners and chanted anti-NATO and anti-US slogans during their protest in the southern Italian city of Naples and Spain’s capital Madrid, insisting that the aim of ongoing military drills – dubbed ‘Trident Juncture 2015’ — is to prepare for new aggression on the horizon.

According to press reports, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization embarked on a major military exercise on September 28 in bases in Spain, southern Italy, as well as Portugal involving 36,000 air, land, and marine troops from over 40 countries and organizations. The war games – the NATO’s largest in the past 13 years — is set to continue until November 6.

Few countries on the planet could hope to dominate the US in tank, air or naval warfare but US soldiers would be easily outgunned in a fire fight, military analyst Jim Schatz wrote in his article for National Defense.

"Yet every bad actor with an AK-47 takes on US and NATO ground forces in a small arms fight. We are no longer suitably armed to prevent it," he wrote. "The current US Army small arms development and acquisition system is dysfunctional and virtually unworkable, even for those within the system."

And Clinton did celebrate when Gaddafi was captured and murdered.

“We came; we saw; he died,” Clinton exulted in a TV interview after receiving word of Gaddafi’s death on Oct. 20, 2011, though it is not clear how much she knew about the grisly details, such as Gaddafi being sodomized with a knife before his execution.

Blair Inc - A book review

Europe and money are two of the big themes of Blair Inc., a conscientious effort by Francis Beckett, David Hencke and Nick Kochan to uncover the New Labour leader’s activities post No. 10: Europe because the authors claim that Blair still longs for a world role, one the European presidency would provide; and money because they say he has made rather a lot of it since 2007.

It was an old American friend who first alerted me to the Blair family’s fondness for the folding stuff. After seeing Cherie being interviewed on US TV soon after Tony became Labour leader, she told me: ‘My mother had a phrase for people like her – “She’ll go grasping into the grave”.’ Twenty years later, the authors of Blair Inc. tell us that the couple now own 36 properties. Their portfolio includes the former Bucks home of Sir John Gielgud that the couple acquired for a reported £4m in 2008 as a sort of personal Chequers. As far as Beckett, Hencke and Kochan can establish, given the complexity and secrecy that surrounds his affairs, Blair himself is now worth around £60m.

Let’s stop the stupid flag waving! (Saker rant)

At the end of the day, I suppose that it all boils down to this: do we trust Putin and the men around him. I do. Completely. But all that flag-waving and high-fiving is totally premature and, frankly, indecent. Just in the last couple of days, an Iranian general and a senior Hezbollah commander have died and the best way to honor them is not to act like Dubya did and not to declare “mission accomplished” when there is a long and hard struggle ahead. The best way to honor these men is to recognize the heroic nature and great difficulty of their struggle.

Right now, it could go either way. In theory, Daesh could break under pressure and basically collapse. This is possible, but this is not what I expect will happen. I expect Daesh to show flexibility and adapt to the new environment at which point the Russians will have to bring in more forces (although a Russian ground offensive is not on the table). As for the Iranians, they cannot afford to allow Daesh to prevail, so if the Syrian military continues to be over-extended and lacking supplies, they will have to move in. If that happens, the Americans and their Arab stooges in the region will go ballistic. So make no mistake, there next couple of weeks will be extremely dangerous.

She is simply incapable of telling the truth. Dishonesty is part of her make-up -

What did we learn from the Democratic presidential debates? We learned that Hillary Clinton hates Edward Snowden, loves the Patriot Act, and considers “the Iranians” among her biggest enemies. In short, we learned that she may very well be Lindsey Graham in drag.

And we also learned what many already knew: that she considers herself above the law.

U.S. patrols to raise stakes with Beijing in disputed South China Sea

U.S. plans to send warships or military aircraft within 12 nautical miles of China's artificial islands in the disputed South China Sea, possibly within days, could open a tense new front in Sino-U.S. rivalry.

A range of security experts said Washington's so-called freedom of navigation patrols would have to be regular to be effective, given Chinese ambitions to project power deep into maritime Southeast Asia and beyond.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a small point that should be remembered. China didn't just create a bunch of new islands rising from the floor of the ocean to above the water. In most cases, China simply built up already-existing landmasses such as atolls and reefs, no different than what has been done to places like Diego Garcia.

Secrets of the Syrian War: October 2015

The greatest secrets: the West has no people on the ground in Syria to take over the liberated territories; the Russians still seek partnership, Erdogan has bitten more than he can chew, and ISIS is a phantom, after all.

Russians are enjoying their Syrian adventure. Twenty days after its start, their entry into the Syrian war has paid off and brought some dividends.

Putin has been very popular before the war, with 86% support in the ratings, and now his public support has gone through the roof.

The tide is turning against Zionist extremism

These changing perceptions are the result of the rise of alternative forms of media, which have broken through the mainstream media’s imbalanced and inaccurate portrayal of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

For decades, the one issue that has been the exception to the broadly progressive streak within American Judaism has been Israel. The Jewish state has received unchallenged support by most Jews despite its decades-long occupation of the West Bank and the pursuit of policies toward Palestinians that, were they practiced by any other country, would be overwhelmingly opposed by American Jews.

Merkel’s Faustian embrace of Turkey

If the EU, under Merkel’s direction, accedes to Turkey’s demand for setting up safe zones in northern Syria, then that has ominous implications.

Turkey is pressuring Germany to create “safe zones” inside Syria as a “price” for alleviating the EU’s refugee crisis. It’s a Faustian bargain that could escalate the Syrian conflict, where NATO forces could end up pitted against Russia’s military.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hot-footing to Istanbul last weekend was capped with a U-turn regarding Turkey’s much sought-after membership of the European Union. In a surprise move, Merkel announcedthat she was now in favor of pushing for Turkey’s accession to the EU, when only a few weeks ago she had reiterated her opposition to its membership.

Silencing a Whistle-Blower, Gladio B and the Origins of ISIS, Interview with Sibel Edmonds

So the role of these paramilitary units, funded, directed, managed, armed by the CIA and NATO was, during these years, in Europe and elsewhere, were to create terror events. You know, blow up bombs, um, gun down people, set, let’s say a shopping centre on fire, and then blame it on the communist net-communist networks. And they did hundreds of such operations. There are several good books from historians who have documented these false flag terror events, terror events that were created, implemented, brought about by the CIA/NATO’s paramilitary units within Eastern Europe, in Italy, and in Italy they were very big, but the biggest nation that they had the biggest units, we just had its own also office inside the Pentagon was in Turkey, and that’s where I’m from! (chuckle!) – the Turkish arm of the Gladio network.

So, they did all this and you’d think that once the Soviet Union dissolved in 1990-1991, the operation would have been basically shut down, because this was against communism so-called. That’s the uh basically the competition between the two superpowers, not per se the communism as ideology, it was the fight for the dominance – global dominance. But they didn’t shut it down.

They switched that and they changed the operation from – the original operation to Operation B, Gladio Operation B.

Going to War: Tony Blair’s “Contract in Blood”

It reads like a whodunit document behind a failed criminal enterprise. As it should –it figured as a vital step behind the invasion of Iraq in 2003. And it was found in a stash of previously secret correspondence on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server.

The Colin Powell memorandum in preparation for the Crawford summit of April 2002 (yes, that Powell, who has undertaken some considered Pilate handwashing ever since), was more damning than most. It outlined what the British role behind justifying an imminent war with shoddy grounds would look like. More importantly, it provides ample carrion for the prosecution against Tony Blair for that often discounted charge of crimes against peace.

Ever since becoming prime minister of Britain, the greatest public relations machine to disgrace Westminster went into service for the US cause. Blair’s role was deemed indispensable to providing the right colouration for what was coming: regime change in Iraq.

Pentagon’s 2016 Defense Budget: $1.6 Billion for a Proxy Army Against Russia

America is about to get more "appropriately vetted" rebels to go with the four or five the Pentagon got out of the $500 million spent last year! Woohoo!

But at least amendments to this year’s bill would finally outlaw the training and arming of Ukraine’s notorious paramilitary neo-Nazi “Azov” battalion which America had previously been funding. Azov has been described not to but by US lawmakers as a “fascist” and “openly neo Nazi” group, and yet, the government has knowingly been using taxpayer dollars to fund them, while the US media pretends to ignore the war atrocities they’ve committed over there against people who voted 90%+ for Ukrainian President Yanukovych, overthrown by the US with the help of said Nazis to put in a US-backed puppet government so they can screw with Russia and give seats on the Board of Directors of the largest private Ukrainian gas producer to people like Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

Dr. Strangelove is naked: Putin's campaign in Syria smashes the empire's plans for "Greater Middle East"

The whole Global South is now informed about how the Russian campaign in Syria has swiftly smashed all of 'Exceptionalistan's' elaborate plans for a "Greater Middle East."

These plans span everything from the Wolfowitz Doctrine to Dr. Zbig "Grand Chessboard" Brzezinski's categorical imperative of preventing the emergence of a strategic competitor across Eurasia.

But the subtext is even more intriguing: The Pentagon never saw it coming. And they are absolutely terrified of the inevitable consequences.

As Russia Bombs ISIS, US Bombs Syrian Civilian Power Stations

As Russian forces drop bombs and missiles on top of ISIS fighters all across Syria, lobbing cruise missiles from the Caspian, regular sortie missions, and combat helicopter attacks against ISIS and other “relatively moderate” cannibals and terrorists, the United States launched a bombing mission of its own against two power plants in Aleppo.

Oct 23 09:29


While lawmakers seem to have no problem finding funds for bombs fighter jets and terrorists in Syria and Iraq, it seems that it is much more difficult for them to find money to pay American soldiers for their service and pay for their healthcare once that service is over.

This is because Congressional Defense leaders on Tuesday announced that they are looking to enact more “entitlement and personnel reforms” in 2016.

The bill being submitted and debated by Congress would provide a much lower than anticipated pay raise for U.S. troops beginning in January 2016. It includes cuts in the growth of military housing stipends, an introduction of new co-pays for some military drug prescriptions and a scale-down of the commissary benefit.

The bill also includes changes to the traditional military retirement system and an overhaul of military healthcare offerings like Tricare.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And when people stop enlisting, after realizing what a completely raw deal military service in this US has become, there is draft legislation, still floating in Committee for the last two years, to make military service compulsory.

Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced legislation on Friday that would reintroduce the draft and would require all women to register for the Selective Service. These two bills aim to challenge the decisions that are made to send our troops into harm's way. Ten years ago on February 15, 2003, fifteen million people across 800 cities protested the invasion of Iraq, making it the largest antiwar rally in history. "Now that women can serve in combat they should register for the Selective Service alongside their male counterparts," said Rangel. "Reinstating the draft and requiring women to register for the Selective Service would compel the American public to have a stake in the wars we fight as a nation. We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm's way." The National Universal Service Act (H.R 747), also known as the "draft" bill, would require 30 million people in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform two years of national service in either the armed services or in civilian life. It would build upon the community service infrastructure already in place such as the Peace Corps and AmeriCorps, as well as local initiatives such as NYC Serve. The National Universal Service Act was first introduced in 2003 at the height of protest against going to war with Iraq, and was reintroduced in 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2011. Rangel's All American Selective Service Act (H.R. 748) would require women to enroll in the Selective Service System, which would double the number of registrants. The current law requires only men ages 18 to 25 to register, and there are approximately 13.5 million in the registry. "I served in Korea, and understand that sometimes war is inevitable," Rangel continued. "However military engagement should be our last resort. If we must go to war, every American should be compelled to stop and think twice about whether it is worth sending our brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters to fight. Currently less than one percent of America's population is unfairly shouldering the burden of war."

I would remind Representative Rangel that it is never the people of this country who get to decide about going to war; Constitutionally, it is the Congress' power, and ONLY the Congress' power - to declare war.

The people of this country have absolutely no say in this whatsoever.

Russian Air Force cuts off ISIS supply lines by bombing bridge over Euphrates

Russia’s airplanes cut off routes used by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) to deliver supplies to Syria from Iraq by bombing a bridge over the Euphrates River, the Russian General Staff said.

“The bridge over the Euphrates River near [the Syrian city of] Deir ez-Zor was a key point of the logistics chain [of IS]. Today Russian pilots carried out a surgical strike against the object,” the deputy chief of the General Staff of Russia, Colonel General Andrey Kartapolov, said on Thursday during a news briefing, adding that the terrorist group’s armament and ammunition delivery route had been cut off.

Kartapolov also stressed that the strike was delivered in a region that, according to the US military, was fully controlled by IS militants.

Why Is The U.S. Silently Bombing Syria's Electricity Network?

The plant is in the hands of the Islamic State but there is an informal agreement between the government, which controls the distribution network, and those who hold the power generating station:

[T]he agreement of understanding pertains to the division of the electricity supply between the parties, whereby ISIS will receive 60% of the quota and the Syrian regime will receive 40%.

Both sides will have some electricity and the civilian as well as fighters on both side will be better off than without electricity. No side has a motive to destroy that plant.

But last night the U.S. coalition bombed the Aleppo thermal power plant and destroyed parts of it:

A military source told SANA that warplanes of the Washington alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare’a, Tal Sha’er, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday.

The U.S. Navy’s Big Mistake?—Building Tons of Supercarriers

The Pentagon behaves as if aircraft carriers will rule forever … they won’t

“History,” it has been written, “does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” Today it’s rhyming with Gen. Billy Mitchell. In the 1920s, Mitchell challenged conventional thinking by advocating air power at sea in the face of a naval establishment dominated by battleship proponents.

The hubris of the “battleship Navy” was such that just nine days before Pearl Harbor, the official program for the 1941 Army-Navy game displayed a full page photograph of the battleship USS Arizona with language virtually extolling its invincibility.

Of course, the reason that no one had yet sunk a battleship from the air?—?in combat?—?was that no one had yet tried.

In fact, Mitchell sank a captured German battleship, the Ostfriesland, in an aerial demonstration back in 1921, but the Navy said that the test proved nothing. Two of the observers that day were officials from Japan.

America must lead in a dangerous world, and our diplomats must continue representing us in dangerous places. […]

We have learned the hard way when America is absent, especially from unstable places, there are consequences. […]

Retreat from the world is not an option. America cannot shrink from our responsibility to lead.

Under questioning, Clinton also characterized the Libya intervention as "remarkable," echoing her assertion last week that it was "smart power at its best."

Thoughts On The American Empire and Its Decline

By Michael S. Rozeff
October 22, 2015

The American Empire is deteriorating. It’s been going downhill for decades. The descent is likely to continue, alleviated irregularly by policies that retard the decline or even reverse it for a time.

The IDEA that there is an American Empire is not widely recognized by the general public.

If the public doesn’t grasp that there is an American Empire, they cannot understand the idea that this empire is declining and headed for greater and greater failure.

“Herodotus believed that there were invariable laws to the rise and fall of empires. Empires rose and fell—as they still do today—because of individual decisions made by individual leaders.

“The greatest mistake made by those in power, like Darius, was the sin of hybris. That Greek word means ‘outrageous arrogance.’

The Secret Memo: Tony Blair’s Iraq Role Will “Follow Him to His Grave.”

The fact that Blair has gone on to amass a fortune since leaving office in 2007 – through his role as adviser to various governments around the world, some with egregious human rights records; his role as a consultant to an international bank, a Saudi oil company, and as a speaker at various corporate and international business gatherings – many find especially repugnant. What these memos prove is that Tony Blair was blinded by the power of Washington, desperate to bask in its favors and prestige, determined in the process to become a political player on the international stage. Instead he has become a laughing stock, particularly in the UK, where public revulsion of him is widely felt, indeed it is now a toss-up between him and Margaret Thatcher over which is the most loathed British prime minister in the country’s recent history.

US Sells New Warships to Saudi Arabia Despite Warnings of War Crimes in Yemen

Saudi Arabia is currently using US ships to block food, fuel, and medical supplies from entering Yemen, with US-manned ships “patrolling alongside”. Doctors Without Borders has reported that the blockade is “killing as many people in Yemen as the bombing”, and the Red Cross and other groups have said it is causing a humanitarian crisis, as Yemen imports almost one hundred percent of its food. While nationalist news outlet Reuters asserts that deals like the current weapons shipment to Saudi Arabia are “carefully vetted”, independent investigative journalist Gareth Porter asked the Obama regime about the clear “illegality of resupplying further munitions to the Saudis”, and was told only that the US has asked King Abdulaziz to investigate himself regarding his war crimes.

What Congress Should Ask Hillary Clinton

There are dozens of Hillary Clinton scandals that I have no wish to minimize. But how is it that her habits of secrecy themselves attract more interest than the secrets already exposed?

Here is someone who has allowed shipments of weapons to countries that effectively paid her bribes. Last May the International Business Times published an article by David Sirota and Andrew Perez with the headline "Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department."

As the article recounts, Clinton approved a massive weapons sale to Saudi Arabia, almost certainly involving weapons since used to bomb innocent families in Yemen, despite official State Department positions on Saudi Arabia and, I might add, in apparent violation of the Arms Export Control Act.

More than 35,000 troops are participating in NATO’s month-long Trident Juncture war games, along with some 140 warplanes and 60 warships. The militaries of 30 different capitalist governments aligned with the NATO alliance are involved.

Massive NATO drills are taking place in Italy, Spain and Portugal. The drills are designed to prepare the NATO powers for large-scale strategic warfare outside the boundaries of the NATO countries, according to NATO officials.

The main focus of the NATO drills is to prepare for comprehensive strategic warfare spanning broad stretches of the Eurasian landmass, comments from NATO officers have made clear.

“Trident Juncture 2015 will demonstrate NATO’s new increased level of ambition in joint modern warfare and will showcase a capable, forward-leading Alliance,” NATO’s command center said in a statement Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is about one thing, and one thing only: war with Russia.

As with the US, just because an action would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing NATO could do is, unfortunately, no guarantee that NATO, prodded and poked by the US government, won't do it.

And why war, and why now?!?

The economy is collapsing around our ankles; and rather than the US government admitting that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing was yet another epic fail by the private central banks which comprise the Fed, this coming, global war is the only thing they can think of to misdirect the anger of the American public at this collapse away from its designers,and toward a trumped-up enemy which is now being utterly vilified by the corporate whorespondents.

And if you want a very real-world demonstration of just how "brilliantly" NATO is working, please take a look at their joint occupation of Afghanistan with the US, 14 years on; the current state of that country tells it all.

Text "Obama accidentally admitted US government is training ISIL (ISIS, Islamic State) which White House later denied and corrected the "mistake".This is consistent with what my research ultimately concludes and what many in the alternative media have been reporting."

How Did a Russian Machine Gun Wind up on an American Tank?

Ever since the Russians started their bombing campaign in Syria, one fact has become abundantly clear. The United States is on the fast track to becoming a second-rate power, much like the Russians were in the 90’s and early 2000’s. We no longer live in a unipolar world, where our military can throw its weight around without facing any competition. From now on, every conflict that our military is engaged in, will be shared with other world powers that are not too keen on letting us dominate the planet.

And that means that the battlefield of tomorrow is going to be filled peculiar situations, much like the following:
