Note to Blinken: Israel’s ‘military option’ shouldn’t be on our table

As indirect talks to restore the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) remain in limbo, the U.S. and Israeli governments continue suggesting that “other options,” including military action, are available and will be considered if the talks should fail.

The latest example of this came during a press conference between Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Secretary of State Antony Blinken earlier this week along with their counterpart from the United Arab Emirates. Commenting on Iran’s nuclear program, Lapid said that “Israel reserves the right to act at any given moment, in any way,” and he stated, “We know there are moments when nations must use force to protect the world from evil.” For his part, Blinken said that “time is running short” to restore the nuclear deal, and he affirmed that “Israel has the right to defend itself and we strongly support that proposition.”

Insanity Or What?

The American government does appear to be insane. They have deliberately antagonized China, Russia, Syria, Iran, Venezuela and Lebanon. Yet they sent so much of their manufacturing capacity to China that the US trade deficit is $73.3 billion a month. That means we have to finance wars for Israel and Wall Street by selling bonds to China to buy war materiel from them. The result is that we can only fight a war against China if the Chinese are willing to sell us war supplies on a dodgy credit card.

Is that insane or what? National suicide? A plan to lose WW III? What are the governing principles of the actions of Washington?

Russia has hypersonic missiles. Even Iran has Mach 14 missiles. America cannot defend against missiles faster than Mach 9. On the day we learned that China tested a new space shuttle, Major General Jo Clyborne was tweeting about Pentagon manicure regulations.

Global Mobility - Future Force Design 2040

The Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, published by the UK Government in March 2021, presents an ambitious vision of a 'Global Britain' that has a persistent presence around the world and contributes to tackling a range of crises both at home and abroad.

To deliver on this vision, the UK Armed Forces will need the right force design and mix of military capabilities to enable them to be 'in the right place at the right time', while also supporting wider cross-government priorities.

This study identifies the likely changes in mobility requirements between now and 2040 and outlines a range of options to deliver global mobility in dynamic threat and policy environments. The following options were explored in greater detail: the use of multi-role platforms; international collaboration; commercial solutions; uncrewed or optionally crewed lightweight assets; data-driven and data-enabled mobility and additive manufacturing.

Outrageous! Woke Leaders Denied Ashli Babbitt's Military Funeral

The recently deceased Ashli Babbit loved America so much that she would die for it, but her mother mourns that neither the country nor her beloved Air Force, is joined in showing their love back to her.

Some anti-Trump leftists even spread contempt and rage at someone who is a "hero" to many, especially her mother Micki Witthoeft. Still, she told Newsmax it is the Air Force turning its back on her that is bad as itself.

"I think the military disrespected her," Witthoeft told John Tabacco on Saturday night's "Wise Guys." "We had some proud patriots who did a flag service for her and play taps, and it was a beautiful service, but to be told by the Air Force that she didn't qualify for participating on Jan. 6, that was a slap in the face.

Pentagon Faces Class-Action Lawsuit Over Vaccine Mandates On Military, Federal Employees And Contractors

Service members from all five branches of the U.S. military, federal employees, and federal civilian contractors have joined in a class-action lawsuit against the Department of Defense over its COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

The 24 plaintiffs “face a deadline under the Federal COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate to receive a COVID-19 vaccine that violates their sincerely held religious beliefs, and have been refused any religious exemption or accommodation,” according to Liberty Counsel, the Christian legal firm that filed the lawsuit.

The lawsuit (pdf), filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, lists President Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as defendants.

China Condemns US & Canada For Joint Warship Sail Throughs Of Taiwan Strait

The Pentagon revealed on Sunday that it sailed a US warship through the contested Taiwan Strait in conjunction with a Canadian frigate. The pair went through on Thursday and Friday at a moment tensions between China and Taiwan continue to intensify.

The warships were identified in the US military statement as Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Dewey and the Canadian frigate HMCS Winnipeg. "Dewey's and Winnipeg's transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the commitment of the United States and our allies and partners to a free and open Indo-Pacific," the US military statement said.

This continues the apparent Biden administration pattern of sailing a warship through the strait on "freedom of navigation" missions about once every month. This latest comes within weeks after China's PLA military flew record numbers of aircraft into Taiwan's air defense identification zone.

The Collapsing American Military

Possibly the articles by Dan Goure and David T. Pyne are sincere concerns of military analysts worried about Washington’s unrealistic hubris. Also possibly Goure and Pyne are consultants to defense firms and are lobbying for an even larger military budget. Nevertheless, both are correct that Washington is no match for Russia and China and is spread too thin in its ambitions to be a match for anyone. Nevertheless, the real military problem for the US is completely different from what they think.

US Army to Stage Largest Robot Tank Experiment Ever

The U.S. Army intends to test an entire company of unmanned combat vehicles in simulated battle next year, a wargame that leaders called unprecedented and a big step toward refining the hardware and software that will one day enable wheeled robots to take the battlefield.

Gen. Ross Coffman, the director of Army Futures Command’s Next Generation Combat Cross-Functional Team, told reporters at AUSA this week that the closest thing to the Army’s upcoming robot exercise at Fort Hood, Texas, was last year’s platoon-sized effort at Fort Carson, Colorado.

For that exercise, the Army turned some old M113 armored personnel carriers into robots. “You can imagine that if you can turn a 113, you can turn anything into a robot,” Coffman said. “We learned a ton. There were some clear winners in the technology base. There were some that weren't as great.” Among the winners was the human-machine interface, he said.

Navy To Separate Unvaccinated Officers Under Same Category Used For Drug Offenders and Sexual Deviants

The United States Navy is punishing and separating unvaccinated naval officers under the same category of “Misconduct, Moral or Professional Dereliction” that is used to separate drug offenders and sex offenders from the Navy. NATIONAL FILE broke the news that the Navy is setting up a a new punishment squad called the CCDA to carry out the “administrative separation” of vaccine refusers. All vaccine refusers are reportedly getting discharged after they are separated. In a newly released policy document to guide the CCDA, the Navy states that vaccine-refusing naval officers will be processed as “Misconduct, Moral or Professional Dereliction” cases.

Dem lawmaker wants to expand trend of ceding war powers to the president

Should Congress authorize war with China in order to prevent war with China? It doesn’t take a legal scholar or policy expert to know the correct answer is a resounding “no.” Yet that is precisely what Representative Elaine Luria (D-Va.) is arguing in a new op-ed in the Washington Post.

This is flawed and problematic on multiple levels. First, there’s the baffling legal analysis. Complaining that the president’s “hands” are “legally tied,” Rep. Luria warns that “the president has no legal authority, without the express authorization of Congress, to use military force to defend Taiwan,” citing the War Powers Resolution and Taiwan Relations Act. In fairness, she is completely correct that the president does not have such unilateral authority, but she has ignored the fundamental reason why: because the U.S. Constitution says so.

'We will lose the new Cold War with Communist China within the decade': Stark warning to the US after Chinese launches 'hypersonic missile that orbits the Earth at 38,000 mph' but Beijing claims it is just a routine test for the 'PEACEFUL use of space'

America will lose a new Cold War arms race with China within a decade unless it takes a tougher stance with Beijing, a Republican congressman has warned after it was claimed the Chinese tested a new hypersonic nuclear-capable missile.

Mike Gallagher, a member of the armed services committee, blasted the Biden administration for 'complacency' and said America needs to 'aggressively' re-think its relations with China after security sources reported that Beijing launched a rocket that carried a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile into space in August.

While China was known to be working on the technology, the test took analysts by surprise and indicated Beijing's missile programme is more advanced than previously thought. 'We have no idea how they did this,' one said.

Covid-19: A Psychological Military Operation, Part I

By Dr. Igor Shepherd

October 13, 2021

We are at war, people—a one-sided war. The freedom-fighters of America have lost their way and cannot discern that enemies are deep within their midst. This is because today’s war is psychological. No adversary of freedom has ever before been able to conquer the entire world through military combat—humanity always saw what was coming and fought back. But this time around it is different. Americans and people in other free nations are clueless that they have been under an enemy attack since the inception of Covid-19, and that a diabolical military psyop has been underway.

Nuclear Weapons And Europe

On October 5 the U.S. State Department announced that the U.S. military’s arsenal of nuclear weapons numbered 3,750 as of September 30, 2020. It was stated with satisfaction that “This number represents an approximate 88 percent reduction in the stockpile from its maximum (31,255) at the end of fiscal year 1967”, although it wasn’t mentioned that the reduction since 2018 was only 35.

GLOBAL THREAT China fires hypersonic nuke ‘right round the Earth’ as terrifying display of advanced weapons ‘leaves US reeling’

CHINA has fired a hypersonic missile around the globe with the US left reeling by the terrifying display of military strength.

US intelligence and military officials were reportedly left stunned after China launched a rocket in space carrying a hypersonic glide vehicle which circled the globe before before speeding towards its target.

The nuke-capable missile missed its target by about two-dozen miles when it was secretly launched in August, intelligence sources told the Financial Times.

But the chilling test has alarmed US officials and shows how China has made astonishing progress on the development of its hypersonic weapons, sources said.

China tests new space capability with hypersonic missile

China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile in August that circled the globe before speeding towards its target, demonstrating an advanced space capability that caught US intelligence by surprise.

Five people familiar with the test said the Chinese military launched a rocket that carried a hypersonic glide vehicle which flew through low-orbit space before cruising down towards its target.

The missile missed its target by about two-dozen miles, according to three people briefed on the intelligence. But two said the test showed that China had made astounding progress on hypersonic weapons and was far more advanced than US officials realised.

The test has raised new questions about why the US often underestimated China’s military modernisation.

“We have no idea how they did this,” said a fourth person.

Settlement Spurs Navy to Take Another Look at 'Bad Paper' Discharges of Traumatized Vets

The U.S. Navy has agreed to review more than nine years’ worth of “bad paper” discharges given to thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder or certain other trauma-related health conditions.

That announcement follows preliminary court approval Tuesday of a settlement of a 2018 lawsuit alleging that a Navy board had improperly denied a Marine Corps veteran’s request for a better discharge status.

The suit was filed by Tyson Manker and the National Veterans Council for Legal Redress. Manker, who served from 1999 to 2003 and earned multiple awards and commendations, received an other-than-honorable discharge for smoking marijuana.

The settlement would require the Navy to review discharge status upgrade applications made to the Naval Discharge Review Board between March 2, 2012, and the effective date of the settlement.

Video: The Criminal Mindset of the Pentagon: “All Vietnamese Were ‘Gooks'”, “We Were The Civilized People”

This video provides a testimony by young American recruits of the 1960s who were drafted and sent to fight America’s war against the people of Vietnam.

What they say confirms the criminal mindset of the Pentagon. “All Vietnamese Were ‘Gooks'”, “We Were The Civilized People”.

Extensive crimes against humanity were committed.

Vietnam Did not Win the War

Vietnam never received war reparations from the U.S. for the massive loss of life and destruction, yet an agreement reached in Paris in 1993 required Hanoi to recognize the debts of the defunct Saigon regime of General Thai.

This agreement is in many regards tantamount to obliging Vietnam to compensate Washington for the costs of war.

In recent years, Vietnam has entered into a bilateral military cooperation dialogue with the US.

The atrocities committed by the U.S. are being erased from the history of so-called “post war era”.

Our thoughts today are with the people of Vietnam.

Video: Gruesome Warfare and Artificial Intelligence: Robot Dogs with Assault Rifles

The modern battlefield is rapidly changing, mostly thanks to emergent technologies such as robotics and Artificial Intelligence.

Not too-long-ago, infantry had to look for their adversaries on a battlefield, be it in a forest, city or even a cave. Now, troops can simply send in their machines with mounted weapons do their dirty work.

Ghost Robotics is a company known for developing military dog-like robots for several years now. The concept was mostly popularized by Boston Dynamics and their numerous robots.

But at the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Association of the United States Army, between October 11th and 13th, they took things up a notch and showcased their brand-new robot.

The four-legged robot called Q-UGV (quadrupedal uncrewed ground vehicle) had a rifle mounting on top of it.

The Pentagon’s Dilemma: The Covid Vaccine Impairs the Performance of U.S. Fighting Forces

“Careful consultation”? With Joe Biden, the Commander in Chief?

Visibly no serious consultations were undertaken.

“Mandatory Vaccination … To Protect”. Nonsensical statement by the Secretary of Defense.

The adverse events and injuries pertaining to the Covid vaccine are amply documented: thrombosis, heart attacks, myocarditis, blood clots, cancer, neurological impacts.

Indelibly these vaccine related “health risks” will affect vaccinated military personnel as well as the performance and capabilities of “US fighting forces”.

Pentagon analysts are mum on the subject, because they are told that the “vaccine is safe”.

But the vaccine is not safe. Look at the figures:

National Security Alert: Thousands of U.S. Special Forces and Combat Troops Discharged as Total Force ‘Vaccination’ Decimates Military Readiness

An estimated 350,000 of our military service members are being dishonorably discharged for refusing to take a completely unnecessary and experimental mRNA nanotech injection, which is now proven to degrade immune systems and cause many serious side effects.

Committing Total Force to these reckless injections, which do not protect troops from getting COVID, and, in fact, increase the threat of the spread and result in many provable side effects, is the greatest failure of military leadership in our history, at best. At worst, it is a deliberate treasonous attack against the U.S. military by the top of the Chain of Command.

To make matters even worse, an estimated 450,000 service members have recently been injected with the non-FDA approved Pfizer shot, even though many were falsely led to believe that they were getting the FDA-approved version, which is not even available in the U.S..

US Asks Russia to Remove Missiles ‘Violating’ Treaty Which Washington Unilaterally Scrapped

The United States unilaterally pulled out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in 2019 after accusing Moscow of breaching its terms. Moscow dismissed the allegations, and took the unprecedented step of declassifying the characteristics of the alleged Russian ‘INF-violating missile’. The US pulled out of the agreement anyway.

Russia should remove missiles which violate the terms of the INF Treaty from Europe, US special envoy for nuclear nonproliferation Jeffrey Eberhardt has said.

“Russia has already violated the INF by deploying the missiles. Therefore the solution is for Russia to remove them,” Eberhardt told Sputnik, after being asked to clarify the Biden administration’s position on the Russian initiative to introduce a moratorium on the deployment of medium- and shorter-range missiles in Europe.

Biden’s Iran Special Envoy Warns: ‘Prepare’ for Unconstrained Nuclear Iran

In a virtual discussion Wednesday concerning the future of U.S. relations with Iran hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Malley attacked the previous administration, casting blame on President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal and claiming that “we didn’t need to be here.”

Lockheed Delivers Hypersonic Weapon Launchers to US Army

The US Army last week took delivery of Lockheed Martin’s Long Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) system ground equipment, including the battery operations center, four transporter erector launchers, and modified trucks and trailers.

The hardware deliveries began in March, and the I Corps’ 5th Battalion, 3rd Field Artillery Regiment, and the 17th Field Artillery Brigade will complete fielding the system by fiscal 2023. The truck-mounted missile will reportedly have a range of more than 2,775 kilometers (1,724 miles).

Lt. Gen. L. Neil Thurgood, Director of Hypersonics, Directed Energy, Space and Rapid Acquisition, called the completion of the LRHW deliveries “an important milestone in equipping our nation’s first hypersonic battery.”

‘Terrifying Terminator s**t’: Robotics firm equips ‘robo dog’ with night-vision SNIPER RIFLE

A robotics firm and a gun manufacturer have joined forces to produce what amounts to an animatronic ‘dog’ with a sniper rifle for a face, managing to terrify more than a few netizens after unveiling the new device at an Army expo.

Dubbed SPUR – or the Special Purpose Unmanned Rifle – the robotic canine packs a gun where its head should be, chambered for 6.5mm Creedmoor rounds, as was first reported by the Drive. The system was developed by rifle producer SWORD International and Ghost Robotics, a Philadelphia-based firm founded in 2015, and made its first-ever appearance this week at the main annual convention for the Association of the US Army in the nation’s capital.

More US soldiers killed themselves in few months than died from Covid-19 since start of pandemic, Pentagon reveals

More members of the US military have died from suicide in just the second quarter of this year than of the coronavirus over the course of the pandemic, according to a disturbing new Pentagon report.

Between the beginning of April and the end of June 2021, there were 139 total military suicides – 99 in active service, 14 among reservists, and 26 in the National Guard – says the latest report from the Defense Suicide Prevention Office (DSPO).

The statistics released show a 46% surge in suicides among the US Army active-duty forces over the same span of time in 2020.

The new figures also mean that suicides in just that calendar quarter amount to more than double the official death toll from Covid-19 in the armed forces, which the Pentagon has put at 58 so far.

“A Huge Deal”: Amazon, Google Workers Demand Companies Sever Ties With Israeli Military

By Kenny Stancil

Roughly 400 Amazon and Google workers on Tuesday condemned their employers for contributing to the surveillance and dispossession of Palestinians by selling cloud services to the Israeli military and government and urged both companies to cut ties with the oppressive regime.

“We have watched Google and Amazon aggressively pursue contracts with institutions like the U.S. Department of Defense, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and state and local police departments,” wrote the “employees of conscience,” who chose to remain anonymous due to fear of retaliation.

“These contracts are part of a disturbing pattern of militarization, lack of transparency, and avoidance of oversight,” says the letter, which had been signed by nearly 100 workers at Google and more than 300 at Amazon when The Guardian published it just after 12 pm ET...

Hurt USS Connecticut Highlights Ship Repair Shortfalls At Key Guam Base

Sixteen years ago, the attack submarine USS San Francisco (SSN-711) struck a seamount, surfaced, and went to the island of Guam, America’s westernmost outpost in the Pacific Ocean. After the hurt sub arrived at Guam’s Apra Harbor, the Los Angeles class submarine went into a local dry dock, where shipyard workers made the damaged ship safe enough to make a 6,500-mile journey home to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard for permanent repairs.

History, it seems, is repeating itself. Earlier this month, after the Seawolf class attack submarine USS Connecticut (SSN 22) struck an underwater object, the damaged sub surfaced and made for America’s safe-haven at Guam.

But this time, the reception of the USS Connecticut is going to be a little different.

Johnstone: Anyone Who'd Support Going To War Over Taiwan Is A Crazy Idiot

The mass media have been falsely reporting that China has been encroaching on Taiwan’s “air defense zone”, which gets stretched into the even more ludicrous claim that China “sent warplanes flying over Taiwan”. In reality Chinese planes simply entered an arbitrarily designated area hundreds of miles from Taiwan’s coast it calls its “Air Defence Identification Zone”, which has no legally recognized existence and contains a significant portion of China’s mainland. This is likely a response to the way the US and its allies have been constantly sailing war ships into disputed waters to threaten Beijing.

As Moon of Alabama reports, US warmongers inflamed this non-controversy even further by feeding a story to the press about the already public information that there are American troops in Taiwan training the military there, citing “concern” about the danger posed by China.

China raises nuclear submarine stealth game with redesign and tactics to ‘hide ID numbers’

China has not only revised and upgraded its strategic nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines (SSBN) to increase their stealth power and reduce noise, but is also using deceptive tactics to hide their identification numbers, ?according to both a recently released report and military analysts.

The report, co-authored by French submarine encyclopaedia author Eric Genevelle, and Richard W. Stirn, a former sonar technician submariner with the US Navy, said China had reconfigured its new generation type 094 submarines, and also introduced deceptive tactics to hide identification markers, thus making it difficult to assess how many of the powerful boats it had built.

Revolver Exclusive: Navy Commander Warns of National Security Threat from Mandatory Vaccination

An officer with the U.S. Navy is warning of a full-blown “national security threat” if the military moves ahead with its planned universal COVID-19 vaccination mandate, in a paper obtained exclusively by Revolver News.

In a memorandum released on Monday, Biden Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced his intention to require a COVID-19 vaccination for all servicemembers by mid-September, or immediately should any COVID vaccines clear FDA approval (the vaccines are currently only authorized for emergency use). Servicemen who refuse to submit to the vaccine will potentially face court martials, prison time, and even less-than-honorable discharge from the service.

If that plan goes ahead, though, CDR J.H. Furman warns the results could conceivably be catastrophic.

China Demanding Answers Over US Nuclear Sub "Underwater Collision" In Indo-Pacific Waters

China is demanding to know answers and says it's deeply "concerned" over the incident with the US nuclear submarine in international waters in the Indo-Pacific which was revealed for the first time Thursday. A Navy-affiliated news outlet reported that a US nuclear attack submarine had been damaged in the Western Pacific after suffering an "underwater collision" - although it's not clear what the sub collided with. The collision took place on Oct. 2.

"China is seriously concerned over this incident," China's foreign ministry's spokesman Zhao Lijian said Friday. He urged immediate transparency over the incident, "including the exact location of the incident, the purpose of this trip, and details of what the submarine encountered," according to the statement.

Behind NATO’s ‘cognitive warfare’: Western militaries are waging a ‘battle for your brain’

NATO is developing new forms of warfare to wage a “battle for the brain,” as the military alliance put it.

The US-led NATO military cartel has tested novel modes of hybrid warfare against its self-declared adversaries, including economic warfare, cyber warfare, information warfare, and psychological warfare.

Now, NATO is spinning out an entirely new kind of combat it has branded as cognitive warfare. Described as the “weaponization of brain sciences,” the new method involves “hacking the individual” by exploiting “the vulnerabilities of the human brain” in order to implement more sophisticated “social engineering.”

Until recently, NATO had divided war into five different operational domains: air, land, sea, space, and cyber. But with its development of cognitive warfare strategies, the military alliance is discussing a new, sixth level: the “human domain.”

Potential Israeli-US Plan To Attack Iran Now Underway - Robert Inlakesh TLAV

Joe Biden is now considering the option of military action against Iran, whilst Israel advocates violence against the Islamic Republic as the only way forward. This is not only a betrayal of the Iran Nuclear Agreement and the US public, but may result in a regional war if tensions escalate further.

Why Does Congress Fight over Childcare but Not F-35s? Fiscal Insanity and The Military Spending Bill

President Biden and the Democratic Congress are facing a crisis as the popular domestic agenda they ran on in the 2020 election is held hostage by two corporate Democratic Senators, fossil-fuel consigliere Joe Manchin and payday-lender favorite Kyrsten Sinema.

But the very week before the Dems’ $350 billion-per-year domestic package hit this wall of corporate money-bags, all but 38 House Democrats voted to hand over more than double that amount to the Pentagon. Senator Manchin has hypocritically described the domestic spending bill as “fiscal insanity,” but he has voted for a much larger Pentagon budget every year since 2016.

China Urges US to Reveal Details About Incident With Nuclear Sub in Int'l Indo-Pacific Waters

On 2 October a US Navy nuclear-powered submarine stuck an object while operating in international waters in the Indo-Pacific region.

China is deeply concerned about the incident with the US nuclear submarine in the international waters of the Indo-Pacific region, the foreign ministry's spokesman, Zhao Lijian, said on Friday.

"China is seriously concerned over this incident," Zhao said at a briefing.

Zhao Lijian stressed that the United States and other countries involved should provide relevant details, “including the exact location of the incident, the purpose of this trip, and details of what the submarine encountered”.

US Trying to Set Up Presence Near Afghanistan Under Pretext of Fighting Terror, Russia Says

Washington began reaching out to Afghanistan's neighbours, including Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, in May after President Joe Biden announced that the US would be withdrawing from the country after nearly 20 years of war and occupation. So far, all US overtures in this direction appear to have been rejected.

The United States has not given up on its geopolitical aspirations in West Asia, and is seeking to shore up its position in countries neighbouring Afghanistan under the pretext of fighting terrorism, Yuri Kokov, deputy chief of the Russian Security Council, has said.
"Indeed, there are threats of a geopolitical nature [to Russia], stemming from the fact that the Americans have not actually abandoned their ambitions in this region," Kokov said, speaking to the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper in an in interview published on Wednesday.

US Defaulting on Debt to Undermine National Security, Pentagon Chief Says

The United States defaulting on its debt will undermine the economic strength on which the country's national security rests given that the military would not be able to pay its service members and contractors on time, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Wednesday.

“If the United States defaults, it would undermine the economic strength on which our national security rests,” Austin said in a statement. “I would have no authority or ability to ensure that our service members, civilians, or contractors would be paid in full or on time.”

Austin said in the statement that the benefits of 2.4 million military retirees and 400,000 survivors would also be at risk.

Pentagon Begins ‘Continuous Vetting’ of All Troops for Insider Threats, Extremism; Social Media May Come Next

All Defense Department personnel are now subject to “continuous vetting” designed to spot extremists and other insider threats, with surveillance of their public social-media postings likely coming soon, Pentagon officials said Tuesday.

The announcement follows years of effort to comply with a 2011 executive order to improve on the current security-clearance process, which features an initial investigation but generally no followup for five or more years. The new system will raise flags when new information arrives, such as when a DOD employee is arrested.

It arrives as the department grapples with extremism among uniformed and civilian personnel. Conservatives have accused the Biden administration and senior U.S. military leaders of purging right-wing free speech.

Biden Tells Japan’s New PM That the US Will Defend Senkaku Islands from China

President Biden told Japan’s new Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in a phone call on Monday that the US would defend the Senkaku Islands in the event of a Chinese attack.

The Senkakus, known as the Diayous in China, are a group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea. They are currently controlled by Japan and are also claimed by China and Taiwan.

In a statement on the call, Japan’s Foreign Ministry said that Biden had “reaffirmed the US’s unwavering commitment to the defense of Japan including the application of Article V of the Japan-US Security Treaty to the Senkaku Islands.”

Article V is the section of the US-Japan Security Treaty that outlines the mutual defense agreement between the two countries. Kishida told reporters on Tuesday that President Biden had given “strong remarks on the US commitment to defend Japan, including Article V.”

Lithuania wants to be the new Eastern outpost for US empire

Think the number of U.S. bases around the world are naturally decreasing during so-called peace time? Think again.

An article in Defense One today illustrates “mission creep” in its purest form a la Field of Dreams: Lithuania builds a military base in hopes Americans will come.

And no doubt they will — they are already there, albeit temporarily. According to the reporting by Jacqueline Feldscher, “hundreds” of U.S. service members are already at the new €7 million facility called Camp Herkus. She describes it thusly:

(Camp Herkus) includes a gym stocked with state-of-the art treadmills and weight racks, rubber-turf basketball courts surrounded by container housing stuffed with bunk beds and gear, a PX selling cigarettes and candy, and a game hall where soldiers were playing first-person-shooter video games.

Marine Officer Scheller Freed from Brig as Legal Struggles Continue over Viral Videos

Lt. Col. Stu Scheller -- the Marine officer who rose to fame for a viral video demanding accountability from military leaders for failures in Afghanistan -- has been released from the brig as his legal case moves forward.

In an email statement to Military.com, Marine Corps spokesman Maj. Jim Stenger confirmed the officer was being released Tuesday "as a result of a mutual agreement between Lt. Col. Scheller, his defense counsel, and the commanding general, Training Command."

However, a source with knowledge of the situation said that Scheller remains bound by a gag order that bars him from social media. On Aug. 26, he posted a video that went viral of himself in uniform demanding accountability from senior military leaders following a suicide bombing that killed 13 U.S. troops in Afghanistan that same day.

The Pentagon’s Dilemma: The Covid Vaccine Impairs the Performance of U.S. Fighting Forces

“Careful consultation”? With Joe Biden, the Commander in Chief?

Visibly no serious consultations were undertaken.

“Mandatory Vaccination … To Protect”. Nonsensical statement by the Secretary of Defense.

The adverse events and injuries pertaining to the Covid vaccine are amply documented: thrombosis, heart attacks, myocarditis, blood clots, neurological impacts.

Indelibly these vaccine related “health risks” will affect vaccinated military personnel as well as the performance and capabilities of “US fighting forces”.

Pentagon analysts are mum on the subject, because they are told that the “vaccine is safe”.

But the vaccine is not safe. Look at the figures:

Experts Worry China Close To Acting Upon Turmoil With US

Amid "turmoil" at the top of China's political system, far east expert Gordon Chang warns the Biden administration to be on high alert.

In the lead Fincantieri ("strategic sponsor"), Leonardo ("platinum sponsor") and Mbda (European joint venture in which Leonardo has 25%) which participates as "gold sponsor".

The "Future" has already been outlined in the "Directive for the industrial policy of Defense", issued by Guerini on July 29: Italy must "have a military instrument capable of expressing the advanced military capabilities that the country needs to protect its national interests", which ensures "its membership in the circle of technologically and economically advanced countries". The Directive, overturning Article 11 and other constitutional principles with the silent consent of Parliament, establishes that Italy must increasingly arm itself.

On Top Of Everything Else, Could We Potentially See 2 Major Wars Start Before The End Of The Year?

Historically, the start of most wars has not been a surprise. Usually, there is a very clear build up before hostilities begin, and we are seeing the same pattern today. For example, by now it should be exceedingly clear to everyone that Israel and Iran will be going to war. Both sides have been talking about the coming conflict for years, and everyone knows who has been causing the “mystery explosions” inside Iran and everyone knows who has been attacking Israeli commercial ships. A “shadow war” has already been going on for quite some time, and at some point missiles will start flying back and forth between the two countries. Likewise, by now it should be exceedingly clear that China very much wants to invade Taiwan. “Reunification” is a top national priority for the CCP, and as you will see below, we are being warned that Xi Jinping has apparently decided that Taiwan is “not a problem that will be passed down to the next generation”.

Iran Deploys Tanks, Armor, Artillery to Azerbaijan Border; Turkey Deploys its army in Azerbaijan

A major fight is brewing between Iran and Azerbaijan/Turkey over trade routes being blocked. The scalable Google map below shows the region:

Azerbaijan imposed a $300 Truck Toll upon only Iranian trucks, to travel 40 miles (or so) along an Interstate Highway that passes through Azerbaijan, to places in Armenia. That road was previously Armenia until Azerbaijan invaded last year and took a considerable portion of land, including the road. The yellow-highlighted segment of road on the map below is the issue:

750 Bases in 80 Countries Is Too Many for Any Nation: Time for the US To Bring Its Troops Home

President Joe Biden did what his three predecessors could or would not: halt a seemingly endless war. It took two decades, but American troops no longer are fighting in Afghanistan.

An important aspect of the US withdrawal was closing Washington’s bases, which once spread across the country. Uncle Sam left Bagram Air Base, America’s biggest facility in Afghanistan, on his way home.

However, some 750 American military facilities remain open in 80 nations and territories around the world. No other country in human history has had such a dominant presence. Great Britain was the leading colonial power, but its army was small. London had to supplement its own troops with foreign mercenaries, as in the American Revolution. In wars with great powers Britain provided its allies with financial subsidies rather than soldiers.

Is This the Next US Military Base in Europe?

American soldiers have found gracious hosts in Lithuania.

At this remote base, which opened in August and is now the temporary home of hundreds of American troops, government officials excitedly showed off the new 7-million-euro facility, which includes a gym stocked with state-of-the art treadmills and weight racks, rubber-turf basketball courts surrounded by container housing stuffed with bunk beds and gear, a PX selling cigarettes and candy, and a game hall where soldiers were playing first-person-shooter video games.

But for Vilnius, these comforts aren’t just about making their guests feel at home. They aim to entice Washington to turn its rotational deployments of U.S. troops into a permanent stay, and deter the Russian forces that frequently deploy and exercise in Belarus, less than 10 miles away.

WATCH: Russian Navy successfully fires Zircon anti-ship hypersonic cruise missile from nuclear submarine for first time ever

The Russian Armed Forces have successfully conducted the first test launch of its state-of-the-art Zircon hypersonic missile from a nuclear-powered submarine, firing it at a target in the Barents Sea, in Russia’s Arctic north.

The Ministry of Defense published a video showing the successful test.

The Zircon, first produced in 2016, is an anti-ship missile capable of accelerating up to Mach 9. It has been designed to hit enemy surface ships, such as frigates and aircraft carriers, as well as ground targets located within the range of the missile.

Zircon’s speed (9,800-11,025 km/h) makes it difficult for it to be stopped by any anti-aircraft systems.

While this latest launch is the first time the missile has been fired from a nuclear submarine, it has already undergone testing from surface carriers.

The Living Dead Pax Americana

Pax Americana was always a minor character in a zombie apocalypse flick.

Pax Americana is actually The Eternal Return of the Living Dead. “Pax” was never in order; War Inc. rules. The end of WWII led directly to the Cold War. The unipolar moment was an arc from the First Gulf War to the bombing of Yugoslavia. 9/11 launched the Global War on Terror (GWOT), renamed Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) by Team Obama. We are now entering Cold War 2.0 against China.

What former CIA analyst Ray McGovern memorably describes as the MICIMATT (military-industrial-congressional-intelligence-media-academia-think tank complex) never did “Pax”. They do War, in unison, like The Knights Who Say “Ni!” – minus the comic flair.

Take this Knight for the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the heart of the establishment matrix. CFR specializes in Kissingerian Divide and Rule. Now that applies, in spades, to the Russia-China strategic partnership.

How Autonomous Weapons Could Be More Destabilizing Than Nukes

Autonomous weapon systems – commonly known as killer robots – may have killed human beings for the first time ever last year, according to a recent United Nations Security Council report on the Libyan civil war. History could well identify this as the starting point of the next major arms race, one that has the potential to be humanity’s final one.

Autonomous weapon systems are robots with lethal weapons that can operate independently, selecting and attacking targets without a human weighing in on those decisions. Militaries around the world are investing heavily in autonomous weapons research and development. The U.S. alone budgeted US$18 billion for autonomous weapons between 2016 and 2020.

Okinawa Marines coordinate air, surface strikes with a Navy aircraft carrier for first time

The Marine Corps has taken a big step in developing the commandant’s island-fighting doctrine by coordinating simulated air and surface strikes with sailors aboard an aircraft carrier.

Exercise Noble Jaguar began Sept. 28 and involved approximately 60 Marines from the 3rd Marine Division, 12th Marine Regiment, rocket crews from 3rd Battalion, 12th Marines, and the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, regiment operations officer Lt. Col. Joshua Montero told Stars and Stripes at Camp Hansen on Thursday.

For the first time, Navy planners and intelligence officers from the USS Carl Vinson joined the staff at 3rd Marine Division headquarters for the exercise. Meanwhile, the nearby carrier’s crew took part in the communications exercise alongside other units of the 7th Fleet.

Imperialist Tensions: AUKUS Makes Workers Pay for War with China

We are witnessing an aggressive build-up by the US and its allies for a confrontation with China. The Biden administration is making massive upgrades to the US’s military capacity, and sharply reorienting it to focus on China. At the same time, the US is waging a propaganda war against China and attempting to rally its allies, including the so-called Quad countries of India, Japan and Australia, to form an anti-China bloc. The Australian government has made it crystal clear over recent years that it is very much on board with this US project.

The Old Man's Draft: When The U.S. Drafted Senior Citizens

Today, young American men are required to register for selective service, or draft, so they can be called up for service in times of great military need. However, during World War II the requirement was so great that the draft was expanded to include men up to the age of 64, which became known as the "Old Man's Draft".

Russian Missile Tech has Made America's Trillion Dollar Navy Obsolete

For the past 500 years European nations—Portugal, the Netherlands, Spain, Britain, France and, briefly, Germany—were able to plunder much of the planet by projecting their naval power overseas. Since much of the world’s population lives along the coasts, and much of it trades over water, armed ships that arrived suddenly out of nowhere were able to put local populations at their mercy.

The armadas could plunder, impose tribute, punish the disobedient, and then use that plunder and tribute to build more ships, enlarging the scope of their naval empires. This allowed a small region with few natural resources and few native advantages beyond extreme orneriness and a wealth of communicable diseases to dominate the globe for half a millennium.

Fake News and Conspiracy Theories Causing Americans to Lose Faith in the Necessity of War

Democrat Chuck Schumer and Republican Liz Cheney are at opposite ends of the political spectrum. And still, they both agree that American military intervention is necessary all over the world. Sadly, the people they were elected to represent are losing faith in American values due to the proliferation of false theories and canards on social media and TikTok.

As racism rises across America as a result of Donald Trump, QAnon, and other forms of white supremacy, Americans are losing faith in the values of democracy and embracing debunked conspiracy theories and anti-Semitic tropes and canards.

As a result of our dangerous social media environment, fewer Americans are believing in the proven need for the American military to invade countries and help them to develop women’s rights and equality for the LGBTQ community and protect the territorial integrity of the state of Israel.

At UN, Israel’s Bennett Hints at Military Action Against Iran

Addressing the UN General Assembly for the first time Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett hinted at possible military action against Iran, accusing the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program of crossing “all red lines.”

“Iran’s nuclear program has hit a watershed moment. And so has our tolerance,” Bennett said. “Words do not stop centrifuges from spinning.”

Bennett cited Iran’s recent move to enrich some uranium at 60 percent as one of the “red lines.” But 60 percent is still below the 90 percent needed for weapons-grade uranium, and Tehran only increased enrichment to such levels in response to an Israeli attack on Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility.

The latest Israeli attack on Natanz took place in April. It was a clear effort to sabotage the indirect negotiations between the US and Iran to revive the nuclear deal, which started around the same time.

Air Force base in New Mexico tries to speed cleanup of “forever chemicals”

Cannon Air Force Base is starting work with nearby landowners to test their water and soil for a group of chemicals known as PFAS.

Tests will help the military determine where an underground contamination plume migrated off the base, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

But complex federal legal requirements have made the cleanup process of toxic chemicals that leaked into the Ogallala Aquifer frustratingly slow, Clovis dairy farmers and residents recently told Cannon officials.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, leaked into the ground from firefighting foam used in military training exercises. Similar problems have been reported at military bases and industrial sites across the country.

John Kern, director of the community group Clean Water Partnership at Cannon, said he is concerned that a short-term water treatment solution will not be operational until 2023.

Josh Hawley SLAMS Biden's Surrender To Wokeism

The Biden administration sacrificed U.S. attention that could have guaranteed a calculated military departure from Afghanistan, rather than focusing on promoting the progressive agenda in the Department of Defense, announced Republican Sen. Josh Hawley.

“Joe Biden and his team were more interested in advancing their phony culture war than they were protecting American lives. Their misplaced priorities had devastating consequences – 13 American service members died, and hundreds of Americans were left stranded behind enemy lines,” Hawley told The Federalist. “Rather than worrying about flying the ‘Progress Flag’ or adding a ‘nonbinary’ option to U.S. passports, Joe Biden and his team should’ve been focused on how to safely withdraw from Afghanistan. The Biden administration must be held accountable.”

Iran's Nuclear Program Has Crossed 'All Red Lines': Israel PM

Israel's Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said Monday Iran had breached all the "red lines" aimed at curbing its nuclear weapons program, but that Israel "will not allow" Tehran to get the bomb.

In his first address to the United Nations General Assembly, Bennett claimed the Islamic republic had in recent years taken "a major leap forward" in its nuclear production capacity and ability to enrich weapons-grade uranium.

"Iran's nuclear weapon program is at a critical point, all red lines have been crossed," said Bennett, who took office in June.

"There are those in the world who seem to see Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons as an inevitable reality, as a done deal, or they have just become tired of hearing about it," the 49-year-old premier told the world body.

"Israel doesn't have that privilege. We cannot tire. We will not tire. Israel will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon."

Open for Military Business: Ebola Research at Canada’s Only BSL-4 Lab

On July 5 2019, Xiangguo Qiu and her husband Keding Cheng were removed by Canadian police from the Canadian National Microbiology Lab (NML) in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Their security clearances were also retracted, allegedly over “administrative issues.” Qiu is an expert in Ebola and was in charge of the NML’s pathogen and vaccine division. Cheng is an expert in proteomics. The NML is Canada’s only Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory for the study of pathogens highly hazardous to humans. Starting in 2017, Qiu went at least five times to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Over a five year period she also published papers with the leading members of China’s civilian/military virology establishment who may have had access to the Winnipeg lab. A few months before their suspension, Qiu organized the shipment, which was authorized, of many strains of Ebola and Henipah viruses to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. In January, 2021, the couple were finally fired.

In its turn, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby claimed the U.S. strike was a success, referring to the data of the Central Command of the US Armed Forces, which recognized responsibility for the strike.

Once again Washington proved its unwillingness to defer to its allies.

House passes bill to force young women to sign up for the draft

New legislation mandating that girls register for the military draft is now one major step closer to implementation.

The requirement forcing young women between the ages of 18 and 26 to register for Selective Service now awaits only Senate reconciliation and the president’s signature after the U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday night to pass a crucial national defense bill containing altered language forcing young women to be drafted alongside men in the event of future military conscription.

The $778 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), an annual defense package, was passed after 181 Democrats and 135 Republicans in the House voted to approve it.

Only 38 Democrats and 75 Republicans voted against the legislation.

The policy bill will now be punted back to the Senate for reconciliation with an earlier version of the legislative package already approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC).

The AUKUS preparing a nuclear war to sustain Taiwan

The announcement of the Australian-British-US (A-UK-US) pact [1] was like an earthquake in the Indo-Pacific region.

There is no doubt that Washington is preparing for a long-term military confrontation with China.

Until now, the Western deployment to contain China politically and militarily has involved the United States and the United Kingdom as well as France and Germany. Today, the Europeans are left out. And tomorrow the area will be controlled by the Quad+ (US and UK, plus Australia, India and Japan). Washington is preparing a war in one or two decades.

While France and Germany have not been consulted on this strategy, nor even warned of its public announcement (but other countries had been warned, such as Indonesia), the new device should be staged next week in Washington.

“US Sovereignty”: NATO Takes over Norfolk Naval Base

Some Americans may be unaware that efforts to create a sovereign country in the New World began a century before our Founding Fathers fought a revolution to give form to that desire.

Without fully understanding its long term implications or its ultimate impact upon the entire planet, the American colonists knew instinctively, as if directed by divine guidance, that in order to free themselves from the strangling yoke of the British Empire, they had the right, the duty to establish their own country based on natural law, to define their own borders, to create their own laws and their own authority.

Little did those Founders of what became the greatest country in the world realize they had birthed the essential concept of national sovereignty as a self-governing ideal for an American Republic which would then become the motivation for many countries around the world to emulate.

Since the withdrawal, the US has maintained that it has “over the horizon capabilities” to carry out airstrikes in Afghanistan. But even though the Taliban is leading the new Afghan government, the Pentagon has no plans to coordinate with them on potential airstrikes.
