PEARL HARBOR - MOTHER OF ALL CONSPIRACIES

President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -

denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI)

on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on

having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet.

Eighty Years of Lies: President Franklin Roosevelt Told Public Pearl Harbor Was A Surprise Attack—However There Is Considerable Evidence Demonstrating Government Foreknowledge

Eighty years ago today—what President Franklin Roosevelt termed a “date which will live in infamy”—Japanese forces attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor off the coast of Hawaii, triggering U.S. intervention in World War II.

Historian Samuel Elliot Morrison wrote that one could “search military history in vain for an operation more fatal to the aggressor.”[3] 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,143 were wounded. Eighteen ships were sunk or run aground, including five battleships.

Of the American fatalities, nearly half were due to the explosion of the USS Arizona’s forward magazine after it was hit by a modified 16-inch (410 mm) shell.[4]

In his address to the nation following the attacks, President Roosevelt stated that “the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the empire of Japan.”

December 7, 1941 . . . a Day of Deceit

This week, as Americans remember those 2403 men, women, and children killed – and 1178 wounded – in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, recently released government documents concerning that "surprise" raid compel us to revisit some troubling questions.

At issue is American foreknowledge of Japanese military plans to attack Hawaii by a submarine and carrier force 59 years ago. There are two questions at the top of the foreknowledge list: (1) whether President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his top military chieftains provoked Japan into an "overt act of war" directed at Hawaii, and (2) whether Japan's military plans were obtained in advance by the United States but concealed from the Hawaiian military commanders, Admiral Husband E. Kimmel and Lieutenant General Walter Short so they would not interfere with the overt act.

Media reports, citing anonymous sources, claimed that the European countries and the US were frustrated by the last week of talks in Vienna seeing to revive the Iran nuclear deal. According to them, Tehran backtracked on many of its promises and thwarted achieved compromises. Iran, for its part, accused western states of stalling talks.

Israel is planning to ask the US to carry out military strikes against Iran amid the reported slowdown in Vienna talks between the signatories of the defunct Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA - also known as the Iran nuclear deal), according to Israeli Channels 12 and 13 which didn't reveal their sources. The proposal will reportedly be made by Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz and Mossad's head, David Barnea, when they visit Washington soon.

American Allies Don't Know If They Can Trust Biden's America

Current and former U.S. officials agree the role of the U.S. as a reliable partner in international security has been tainted by this year's withdrawal from Afghanistan, which saw 13 soldiers killed and the country handed back to Taliban rule.

Sen. Joni Ernst, a Republican from Iowa, remarked Saturday that "many of our traditional allies and partners" pulled her aside and asked about the chaotic scenes at the Halifax International Security Forum last month.

Over 23,500 airmen and guardians say no to COVID vaccines as final deadline passes

Nearly 95% of airmen and guardians — about 473,000 people — are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, the Department of the Air Force announced Friday.

About 23,500 troops remained completely unprotected as of 8 a.m. Friday, more than half of whom belong to the Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard. That accounts for around one in every 20 people in the department.

Nearly twice as many Guard and Reserve airmen are unvaccinated than in the active duty component, 14,500 to 8,800. This is the first time the Air Force has released holistic data on its effort to inoculate the department of about 501,000 uniformed members.

NATO battle group in Baltic could be model for entire British army

The NATO Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battlegroup based at Tapa [Estonia] is a microcosm of how the British Army could be in general, outgoing United Kingdom Defense Attaché Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Hing has heard several times, from officers on eFP rotation….

“Several unit commanders have told me that this is what the British Army should be like all the time,” Hing added of the battlegroup, saying that the training was well-funded with plenty of resources at its disposal, including ammunition, and had forged a good working relationship both with units of other NATO nations serving in the eFP (primarily from Denmark and France) and with the Estonian Defense Forces (EDF) 1st Infantry Brigade.

Offensive cyber operations exercise kicks off in Estonia

Technical red teaming exercise Crossed Swords, focusing on experimentation with integrating kinetics and offensive cyber operations in the context of a modern battlefield, was executed by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence (CCDCOE) in Tallinn on Monday.

CCDCOE director Col. Jaak Tarien said that Crossed Swords provides a unique full-spectrum training session in the areas of cyber red teaming, penetration testing, digital forensics, and situational awareness.

"The goal is to build resilient defense by knowing the most current offensive tools and techniques," Tarien said, adding that Crossed Swords tests the capabilities and practices the skills that participants would need when planning and executing a full-spectrum cyber operation, together with elements from other domains.

"To be as practical as possible, the exercise is more comprehensive than ever - including Cyber Command training in addition to technical direction, for example," Tarien said.

Senator Murphy warns Russia against making 'historic mistake'

If Russia decides to continue its aggression against Ukraine, it will be a historic mistake for Moscow, according to Senator Chris Murphy, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Near East, South Asia, Central Asia, and Counterterrorism.
According to the senator's website, he said this in an interview with CNN.

Speaking about a build-up of Russian troops along Ukraine's border, Murphy backed President Joe Biden's plans to raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their virtual meeting scheduled for December 7.

"I do think that there's no substitute for person-to-person diplomacy, and so I hope that this virtual meeting between President Biden and President Putin can bear fruit. But let me say this – if Russia does decide to move further, it would be a mistake of historic proportions for Moscow. Ukraine can become the next Afghanistan for Russia if it chooses to move further," the senator added.

In Washington Good News Becomes Bad News

The good news is that today is Pearl Harbor Day, which brought about the US entry in World War II, a war that never would have been fought if sanity had prevailed among leading statesmen of that era. The lesson-learned for today should be about the steps that could have and should have been taken to avoid war. And there is more good news in that the United States National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), that pork laden mish-mosh that pretends to be serious legislation responsive to the nation’s actual defense needs, is hung up in the Senate, something that has not happened for the past sixty years. But then comes the bad news. The bill is being blocked by several Republican Senators who want to make it nastier, using increased sanctions to halt the Russo-German Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline while also banning imports from China’s Xinjiang region, where some administration officials have accused the government of carrying out genocide against Uyghur Muslims.

Reports: Israeli Officials to Urge US to Attack Iran

sraeli officials will urge the Biden administration to take military action against Iran during talks in Washington this week, three Israeli TV broadcasters reported on Sunday night.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz and David Barnea, the head of the Mossad spy agency, are headed to Washington this week. The TV reports said the two officials will push for the US to develop a “plan B” on Iran that involves harsher sanctions and military action.

Last week, the US and Iran resumed indirect negotiations to revive the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA. The talks concluded Friday and are expected to continue sometime this week. But the US has been claiming Iran is not serious about the process, and the Israelis see an opportunity to convince the US to take a harder line.

Biden to Warn Putin the US Is Prepared to Move More Troops Near Russia’s Border

President Biden will warn Russian President Vladimir Putin that the US is prepared to move more troops and military hardware near Russia’s border on NATO’s “eastern flank” if Russia invades Ukraine, an unnamed senior administration official told reporters on Monday.

Biden and Putin will speak on Tuesday amid heightened tensions over Ukraine. The US has been warning that Russia is planning to move into Ukraine based on a troop buildup in the region, but Moscow strongly denies that it is planning an invasion.

On Friday, The Washington Post reported that US intelligence has found Russia is planning to invade Ukraine in early 2022. But the administration official who spoke with reporters Monday said the US wasn’t sure if Putin was really planning an invasion.

Biden administration hints at deploying additional US troops to support NATO allies if Russia invades Ukraine: President will threaten Putin with economic sanctions during Tuesday call

The Biden administration refused to rule out deploying additional US troops to Eastern Europe should Russian President Vladimir Putin invade Ukraine and President Joe Biden will threaten him with 'substantial economic' sanctions should he make such a move.

Putin has made preparations to invade Ukraine but it's unclear he's made the final decision to do so, a senior administration official said on Monday.

The official noted the US was ready to show a 'combination of support for the Ukrainian military, strong economic countermeasures, and the substantial increase in support and capability to our NATO allies' if Moscow moved forward with an attack.

Reuters:

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told the Reuters Next conference on Friday that Chinese leaders should think carefully about their actions toward Taiwan, warning of “terrible consequences” if China precipitates a crisis across the Taiwan Strait.

In an interview, Blinken addressed multiple foreign policy challenges facing the administration of President Joe Biden, including faltering efforts to repair the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Russia’s military buildup near Ukraine, and the spiraling conflict in Ethiopia.

Honolulu Citizens Demand the Closing of the US Navy’s Leaking Jet Fuel Tanks

Citing threats to Honolulu’s drinking water, the Sierra Club of Hawaii and the Oahu Water Protectors have called on President Biden, the Hawaii congressional delegation, and the U.S. military to shut down the leaking fuel tanks.

The long citizen protest underscoring the dangers from the U.S. Navy’s 80-year-old leaking 20 jet fuel tanks at Red Hill each tank 20 stories tall and holding a total of 225 million gallons of jet fuel came to a head over the weekend with Navy families around the large Pearl Harbor Naval Base being sickened by fuel in their home tap water. The Navy’s huge jet fuel tank complex is only 100 feet above Honolulu’s water supply and has been leaking with regularity.

Must See: Trump Calls Milley A F#cking Idiot

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump called "woke" General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, "a f*cking idiot" at an event Saturday.

Trump made the announcement at an event in Mar-a-Lago hosted by conservative organization Turning Point Action, a C4 affiliate of Turning Point USA.

In reference to the departure from Afghanistan, Trump stated, "I want every nut, every bolt, every screw. We're taking everything. We're taking down the tents. They left all the tents. They left everything. Couldn't they have flown in a couple of hundred pilots and flown the planes back?" Trump asked, turning to grill Milley. Human Events Daily's Jack Posobiec got the scoop.

US Intel Resorting to 'Unprecedented Sharing' to Convince EU of Russian 'Invasion' Plans in Ukraine

The United States actively shared certain intelligence in order to convince the EU and NATO of Moscow's alleged plans to prepare an invasion of Ukraine, the Financial Times reports.

Officials told the newspaper on Sunday that the "unprecedented sharing" of US intelligence reports depicting Russian military deployments along the border helped convince previously sceptical European countries, including Germany, that Russia could "soon order its troops into Ukraine".

"Many allies were not convinced that serious things were happening", one official told the Financial Times. "We were surprised about this [intelligence] gap - how and why the US were seeing things that we were not seeing".

Fact Sheet: U.S. Nuclear Weapons in Europe

Nuclear weapons owned by the United States have been deployed in Europe since the mid-1950s, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized their storage at allied North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) bases on the continent for use against the Soviet Union. Though NATO officially declares itself a “nuclear alliance,” it does not own any nuclear weapons. Instead, a small number of bombs are reportedly kept under U.S. Air Force guard at six airbases in five European countries, ready to be delivered by respective national fighter planes.

Bunker-Buster: The Air Force’s B61 Mod 12 Missile Is Literally Earth Shattering

Low-yield nuclear attack, earth-penetrating strikes, above surface detonation, and bunker-buster explosions are all now woven into a single nuclear bomb for the U.S. Air Force. Meet the new B61-12 weapon.

The B61-12 is a modified nuclear weapon that builds upon and integrates more than fifty years of technology and development. It has been a multi-year modernization effort to engineer a single bomb variant able to perform a range of otherwise separated nuclear attack functions.

Historically, different variants of the weapon were needed for specific missions and blast effects. The B61-12 Life Extension Program has successfully completed its first production unit, according to the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The B61-12 combines the Mod 3, 4, 7, and 11 into a single munition.

Ukraine wants US, UK & Canada to bypass NATO

The US, the UK, and Canada should “visibly” deploy troops in Ukraine near the Russian frontier as support for Kiev to deter a potential military conflict with Moscow, Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexey Reznikov has said.

Speaking to Toronto’s The Globe and Mail on Sunday, Reznikov called on “the Anglo-Saxon allies” to provide assistance to Ukraine outside of NATO structures, including sending more military trainers to the country.

“It would be nice if the Canadian instructors… would be deployed in Kharkiv, Mariupol, Kramatorsk, Odessa, and Zminiy Island,” the defense minister said. All the named locations are in the east and south of Ukraine, close to the border with Russia or on the Black Sea.

Russia’s Greatest Weapon is not a Weapon

An ultimately very healthy but in the meantime very unpleasant realization is gradually dawning in West—an insight that is simply shocking, that fundamentally alters their picture of the world: that the stronger becomes the hurricane of woke transformations that is raging there, the more attractive Russia becomes for hundreds of millions of Europeans and Americans. What is Russia’s most powerful weapon? Is it nuclear? Is it hypersonic (or “hydrosonic,” as per Trump)? Cybermagic, perhaps? No, Russia’s most powerful weapon is its values. And it grows stronger and more dangerous every day, in direct proportion to the intensifying fire of multiculturalism and political correctness that is raging in Europe and in America.

Mediterranean: 65 warplanes, over 20 ships, French nuclear carrier, U.S. interceptor missile destroyer in NATO war games

The Charles de Gaulle is the only nuclear-powered aircraft carrier except for the eleven the U.S. has. The HMS Queen Elizabeth is the largest ship ever built for the British navy, and its Carrier Strike Group 21 represents the largest single deployment of F-35s ever. USS Porter‘s fellow Aegis-class guided-missile warship USS Arleigh Burke has recently entered the Black Sea; they are equipped to fire Standard Missile-3 anti-ballistic missiles (see video below). The U.S. currently has four and will soon have six such destroyers permanently stationed at the Naval Station Rota in Spain under NATO auspices. The U.S. has 68 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers and 27 Ticonderoga-class cruisers capable of launching Standard Missile-3s.

US ‘Resolutely Committed to Taiwan’ If China Invades, Blinken Says

The United States is “resolutely committed to Taiwan” if China invades, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said, as he warned China’s leaders not to “precipitate a crisis” that would have “terrible consequences.”

Blinken, who was speaking at the Reuters Next Conference on Dec. 2, spoke of China’s increasing assertiveness toward Taiwan, which Beijing claims to be part of its territory.

He described China’s attempts to change the status quo as “dangerous” because it has increased pressure on Taiwan, isolated the self-governing island from the rest of the world, and engaged in provocative military maneuvers.

When asked if the United States would commit to sending military forces to Taiwan if it is invaded, Blinken reiterated the country’s position to “making sure that Taiwan has the means to defend itself” either through defense articles or services.

Russia to help Donbas in event of Kyiv's military aggression, could recognize DPR, LPR - Duma members

Should Kyiv choose to pursue a military scenario in Donbas, it could prompt Russia to actively intervene there, and it is not ruled out that Moscow could eventually recognize independence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk (DPR) and Luhansk (LPR) People's Republics, according to members of the Russian State Duma's three largest factions and two committees interviewed by Interfax.

"We will do as much as we can to help residents of Donbas in the event of active aggression. Some 700,000 citizens of Russia live there. This number may increase to around one million by the end of the year. It will be a million Russian citizens. Can you imagine the leader of any country who would leave a million of his citizens in the lurch? You won't find such a leader. And, naturally, we are not going to leave our citizens who live in Donbas in the lurch," United Russia Party MP Viktor Vodolatsky, first deputy chairman of the State Duma's Committee on CIS Affairs and Compatriots, told Interfax.

US Intel Accuses Russia of Planning 'Multi-Front Offensive' Against Ukraine as Early as 2022

Over the last several weeks, tensions have remained high between the US and Russia as American authorities have accused Moscow of laying the groundwork for a potential invasion of neighbouring Ukraine. The Kremlin has repeatedly rejected the unsubstantiated claims.

Newly surfaced US intel reports have accused Russia of planning a "multi-front offensive" against Ukraine sometime within the next year, a charge that marks the latest claim pinned to the Kremlin amid weeks of heightened tensions.

Citing sources and a US intelligence document, The Washington Post reported late Friday that planning is allegedly underway by Moscow for a military offensive as early as 2022 that will include up to 175,000 troops.

An unidentified source with knowledge of the sensitive information alleged to the outlet that Russian forces would be "twice what we saw this past spring during Russia’s snap exercise near Ukraine’s borders".

Biden dismisses Russia’s ‘red lines’

US President Joe Biden has vowed to hold lengthy talks with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, on the issue of Ukraine, but insists he will accept no warnings about “red lines” from Moscow.

“We’ve been aware of Russia’s actions [concerning Ukraine] for a long time and my expectation is we’re going to have a long discussion with Putin,” Biden said on Friday night as he left for Camp David.

“I don’t accept anybody’s red lines,” the president added in apparent reference to the position Moscow reasserted earlier this week as several Western publications suggested a military showdown in Ukraine was imminent.

On Thursday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry again claimed NATO had given assurances it would not move “an inch” further east at the end of the Cold War. Despite that pledge, it has continued to expand, encompassing new member states ever closer to Russia’s borders, with Ukraine repeatedly having expressed an interest in joining the bloc in recent years.

Military Prepping Against Chinese Targets

After a nine-month study of military resources throughout the world, the Pentagon wants to modernize its bases in Guam and Australia to meet the growing threat from China, officials stated on Monday. However, they stated that no major adjustments to the US military posture were required and that the overall findings would not be published.

The nine-month study aimed to align the country's huge military capabilities with the Biden administration's strategic aims, particularly in response to China's growing assertiveness and military expansion.

"In the Indo-Pacific, the review directs additional cooperation with allies and partners to advance initiatives that contribute to regional stability and deter potential Chinese military aggression and threats from North Korea," It was announced by the Pentagon in a statement.

Vast Amounts of Explosives, Munitions Reportedly Stolen From, Lost by US Military

Explosives that originated from military bases or shipments have reportedly been found “in homes and storage units, inside military barracks and alongside roads, even at a US-Mexico border checkpoint.”

Hundreds, possibly thousands of dangerous munitions such as armour-piercing grenades, landmines, and rockets, as well as hundreds of pounds of plastic explosives, have been lost or stolen from the US military during the past decade, AP reports citing their own investigation into the matter.

According to the media outlet, records have been falsified by troops in attempts to conceal thefts, and in some cases, missing explosives weren’t reported at all.

US Reportedly Plans Javelin Missile Delivery to Ukraine, Reneges on Surface-to-Air Missiles

The Biden administration is considering providing Ukraine with additional anti-tank weapons such as Javelin missiles, but has reneged on providing surface-to-air missiles like Stinger missiles in order not to provoke Russia, CNN reported on Friday.

Over the past several weeks, Ukraine and some Western countries have expressed concern about the alleged increase in what they characterise as "aggressive actions" by Russia on their border. However, Russia has refuted the accusations by saying it is moving troops within its own territory and at its own discretion.

Ukraine is planning to use its new military patrol boats, supplied by the United States, to boost defence missions in the Black Sea, the report said citing anonymous sources in the Biden administration.

When will the Pentagon account for its finances?

Do you have a household budget? On a regular basis do you look at your income and your spending and saving habits? If you do, congratulations; you’re a responsible adult who knows the consequences of not reviewing your budget and making adjustments to get you through the year.

Now, imagine the inner workings of the federal department that receives the largest portion of the discretionary budget: the Pentagon. At well over $700 billion per year in spending, the Department of Defense moves the largest number of pieces across the fiscal checkerboard each year. And every one of those red or black checkers is funded by your tax dollars. You’d think such a huge and complicated budget would be closely tracked, accounted for, and double-checked.

But you’d be wrong.

NATO ready to punish Russia

NATO member states are prepared to take action against Russia should it show aggression against neighboring Ukraine, the White House’s top diplomat has announced as tensions between Moscow and the US-led military bloc run high.

Speaking at a conference in Latvia on Wednesday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the organisation is "ready to take serious measures, and NATO is ready to strengthen its eastern flank."

Washington’s envoy, however, insisted the military bloc does not harbor any ill intent against Moscow. “NATO is a defensive alliance," he said. "We are not a threat to Russia... Every step we take is aimed at maintaining active protective measures of our alliance members, as well as helping our partners."

Western missiles in Ukraine ‘will force Russia to react’ – top Moscow senator

A senior Russian senator has advised Kiev and the West to consider how Moscow will react following suggestions that strike missile systems could possibly appear in Ukraine, close to the Russian frontier.

Writing on his Telegram channel, Aleksey Pushkov suggested that Russia would have to take action in response.

“The appearance of missile strike systems in Ukraine will force Russia to react,” he wrote. “I believe that Kiev, Brussels, and Washington should take this warning very seriously.”

Pushkov was reacting to a comment made by Russian President Vladimir Putin at Tuesday’s “Russia Calling!” Investment Forum, when he said that the appearance of advanced weaponry near the border is a serious issue.

Lavrov: US Medium-Range Missiles May Soon Be Deployed in Europe

The architecture of strategic stability is rapidly collapsing, and US medium-range missiles may soon appear in Europe, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.

"The architecture of strategic stability is rapidly collapsing, NATO is refusing to constructively consider our proposals to de-escalate tensions and prevent dangerous incidents. On the contrary, the military infrastructure of the alliance is being brought closer to the Russian borders. A nightmare scenario of a military confrontation is returning," Lavrov said at a meeting of the 28th OSCE Ministerial Council.

Lavrov added that Moscow will insist on the development of agreements that will exclude NATO's advance to the east.

“We are resolute in sending the message to Moscow, that if it moves again to internally destabilize Ukraine or use these forces to enter the country, that it will be met with high-impact economic measures, the likes of which we have not used before, from all of [NATO]” she stressed.

Her statement comes as tensions remain high on the border between Ukraine and Russia, with multiple Western media outlets suggesting a conflict is around the corner. Despite the Kremlin’s repeated denials, Moscow has been accused of preparing for war, with some suggesting a winter invasion.

U.S., NATO fully committed to Ukraine, says Blinken ahead of Lavrov talks

NATO allies share an "unwavering commitment" to Ukraine's sovereignty, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Thursday, hours before he meets Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov amid escalating East-West tensions over Ukraine.

Blinken, speaking at the start of talks with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, reiterated Washington's concerns over a build-up of Russian troops on the border that has triggered threats of fresh Western sanctions against Moscow.

Kuleba tweeted that Ukraine, which is not a NATO member but seeks closer ties with the Atlantic alliance, was working with Western countries on a "comprehensive deterrence package including severe economic sanctions" to stop Russian aggression.

Lukashenko Speaks on Migrant Crisis, Ukraine and Explains Why Belarus Needs S-400s

In an interview with RIA Novosti, the president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, reflected on the impact of Western sanctions imposed on his country after the EU and the US refused to recognise his victory in the 2020 presidential election, also commenting on tensions between his country's closest neighbours - Russia and Ukraine.

Speaking about what his country has been doing to defend itself amid unstable and tense relations with the EU and NATO's reported plans for eastward expansion, Lukashenko mentioned what Minsk needs.

"Today we completely cover our borders with our air defence systems ... But in order to be effective against a missile attack, we need just the S-400, and maybe the S-500 [air defence systems]," Lukashenko said.

Brzezinski brothers want Biden, NATO to reprise father’s confrontation with Russia over Poland

Not to be missed. From the New Atlanticist and the Atlantic Council. Offered by Ian Brzezinski, son of Zbigniew (as he mentions in the article), senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and former U.S. deputy assistant secretary of defense for Europe and NATO policy.

His brother Mark is on his way to becoming U.S. ambassador to Poland just in time for the impending catastrophe in northeastern Europe. The two sons are positioning themselves to reprise their father’s role in confronting and defeating Russia (and Belarus) over Poland.

Hence the labored analogy that serves as the theme of the piece.

The writer alludes to the simultaneity of Washington’s 1980 dual crusade/jihad on the Soviet Union’s northwestern and southeastern frontiers – Poland and Afghanistan, to variously degrees religiously motivated – which has been missed for over forty years.

Kiev’s rhetoric suggests looming military scenario in Donbass, Kremlin warns

Hostilities in Ukraine are still highly probable and Kiev’s aggressive rhetoric suggests a possible military scenario in Donbass, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

"Military operations in Ukraine are still highly probable and this is a cause for special concern, a concern for us," the Russian presidential spokesman emphasized.

"As a whole, we see sufficient, perhaps, even aggressive rhetoric, as we can put it, used by the Ukrainian authorities. We see stepped-up provocative actions along the lines of engagement," Peskov noted.

While talking about the need for direct negotiations with Russia on the Donbass situation, Ukraine "is obstinately trying to depict Russia as a conflicting party," the Kremlin spokesman pointed out.

At the same time, Kiev is acting in a way to make any talks impossible, Peskov stressed.

Four injured after old WWII aircraft bomb explodes in Munich - police

Four people were injured when an old aircraft bomb exploded at a bridge near Munich's busy main train station on Wednesday, police said on Twitter, raising the number of wounded from three earlier.

The Munich fire brigade said one of the people was seriously injured.

More than 2,000 tonnes of live bombs and munitions are discovered each year in Germany, more than 70 years after the end of World War Two.

British and American warplanes pummelled the country with 1.5 million tonnes of bombs that killed 600,000 people. Officials estimate that 15% of the bombs failed to explode, some of which were buried six meters (20 feet) deep in the ground.

Belarusian President Lukashenko Threatens To Halt Transit Of Energy Products From Russia

As if the energy sector needed any more volatility than it's already experiencing, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has thrown his hat in the ring by commenting this week that he could shut down transit of energy products if Poland closes its border with his country.

The border is currently turning into a point of contention between the European Union and Lukashenko. Thousands of migrants are stuck in the middle of the border and at least 11 have died, according to the Wall Street Journal. The migrants are seeking refuge and to move further into Europe. The EU has blamed Lukashenko for using the migrants as "pawns", while Lukashenko attests that something should be done about the humanitarian crisis.

Lukashenko has now escalated tensions over the crisis by indicating he is "serious" about halting energy products from Russia.

Oklahoma Guard Paychecks Under Threat as Vaccine Battle with Pentagon Escalates

Oklahoma National Guard members who refuse mandatory COVID-19 vaccination will eventually lose pay because they won't be able to train or drill, the Pentagon said this week as its dispute with the state's governor continued to escalate.

Those individual troops will shoulder the repercussions -- not getting paid -- after Gov. Kevin Stitt and his state adjutant general challenged Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's order that all members of the active-duty, Guard and reserve force get the shot, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said on Monday.

But the governor's office shot back on Tuesday, questioning the Pentagon's ability to cut pay to individual service members. It was unclear how the federal pay for unvaccinated members could be flagged and withheld, and the Pentagon did not provide further details.

WHO GAINS FROM ETHIOPIA TIGRAY WAR?

If you want to know who is likely to be at war, just look at who is given the Nobel Peace Prize by the Norwegian (NATO) Parliament. Obama got it just days into office before he escalated the war in Afghanistan. Henry Kissinger got it in the 1970’S. And two years ago the Prime Minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed got the prize for making “peace” with Eritrea. Within a year, the much-praised peace deal between Abiy Ahmed and Eritrea’s dictator, President Isaias Afwerki, the two had united to wage war against the Ethiopian Tigray people in the province bordering Eritrea. The alliance of the two was clearly about eliminating the powerful formerly-ruling Tigray minority. Who now stands to gain in the growing debacle ?

The World Keeps Yemen Waiting With Deadly Results

The United Nations Development Program projects that the war in Yemen will have killed at least 377,000 people by the end of this year. That projection represents an increase of more than 140,000 over the previous year’s report. As in previous years, 60% of the war’s casualties have been caused by indirect causes of disease and starvation. According to the report, a staggering 70% of the total casualties are children under the age of five. The youngest and weakest members of the population are most at risk when a country is wracked by mass starvation and multiple epidemics, and they are the ones dying in huge numbers. These are the victims of an unnecessary military intervention and a man-made famine, and most of these deaths could have been prevented if Yemen’s humanitarian crisis had been dealt with the urgency that its severity required.

Remember Pearl Harbor, Mr. President?

Washington is talking itself into war again. The signs are unmistakable.

Admirals are warning of China’s preparations to invade Taiwan and defense hawks on the Hill point to Taiwan as simply the first step in China’s long-term strategic bid for global military hegemony. Nervous European allies see a Russian troop concentration in Eastern Ukraine as evidence for an impending Russian invasion and the Biden administration responds by saying that America’s support for Ukraine is “ironclad.”

When U.S. politicians and senior military leaders invoke the threat of war, Americans must treat their comments seriously. With this in mind, it’s important to understand what did and what did not happen 80 years ago.

From 1920 until the outbreak of war with Imperial Japan, the Navy’s Pacific Fleet practiced fighting the Imperial Japanese Navy on an annual basis. These exercises informed extensive, detailed war plans that were developed in the 1930s.

The Pentagon and the Washington Post: Cold War Brothers-in-Arms

Caveat Emptor. There is no better way to exaggerate perceptions of the threat than to rely on the worst-case assumptions of the Department of Defense. Since the creation of the department in the National Security Act of 1947 we have been inundated with the Pentagon’s distortions: the non-existent “bomber gap” in the 1950s; the “missile gap” in the 1960s; and the so-called “intentions gap” of the 1980s, which argued that the Soviet Union believed that it could fight and even win a nuclear war.

One of the reasons why President Harry S. Truman created the Central Intelligence Agency, also in the National Security Act, was to have an independent civilian agency challenging the Pentagon’s self-serving briefings on Capitol Hill for increased defense spending. The imperative for the military is to ensure the continued flow of funding for its arsenal. To this end, it will always posit the worst case possible that it must defend against.

Putin Warns NATO That Deploying Forces to Ukraine Is a ‘Red Line’

On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned NATO that sending troops and weapons to Ukraine would cross a “red line” for Moscow.

Addressing an online investment forum, Putin said he was concerned that NATO’s eastward expansion could result in the alliance placing missiles in Ukraine that could target Russia.

“The emergence of such threats represents a ‘red line’ for us,” Putin said. “I hope that it will not get to that and common sense and responsibility for their own countries and the global community will eventually prevail.”

Putin’s warning came as the NATO officials met in Riga, Latvia, to discuss a potential response to Russia’s alleged troop build-up near Ukraine. The US has claimed Russia is planning to invade Ukraine, but Moscow strongly denies the accusation.

Belarus Will Support Russia in the Event of Aggression From Ukraine, Lukashenko Says

If Russia faces aggression from Ukraine, Minsk will support Moscow, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

"If Russia faces aggression from Ukraine, we will be closely teaming up — economically, legally, and politically — with Russia. This is the main thing,” Lukashenko said.

He stressed that he would never be "on the side of the nationalist intoxication that is taking place in Ukraine today."

“I will do everything to make Ukraine ours. It is our Ukraine, our people there. These are not emotions, this is my firm conviction,” the head of the Belarusian state said.

Lukashenko previously announced his plans to visit Crimea, saying that his trip would mean its recognition as part of Russia by Minsk.

"We all understood that Crimea is de facto Russian Crimea. After the referendum, Crimea became Russian de jure."

"Ukrainian Armed Forces are building up their military strength, pulling together heavy equipment, personnel. According to some reports, the number of Ukrainian troops in the conflict zone already numbers 125,000, and this, if anyone does not know, is half of the entire composition of the Armed Forces," Zakharova said at a briefing on Wednesday.

US Seventh Fleet's commander calls for MORE aircraft carriers in Pacific to deter China and Russia and make them realize 'today is not the day' to start a conflict

US Seventh Fleet's commander has warned that the United States and its allies need more aircraft carriers in the Pacific to deter and intimidate China and Russia so they realize that 'today is not the day' to start a conflict.

On Tuesday Vice Adm. Karl Thomas told reporters aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson that although the U.S and it's allies combined forces have 'an incredible amount of power,' they should consider expanding their fleet to ensure victory in possible battle, the Wall Street Journal reported.

'When we think about how we might fight, it's a large water space, and four aircraft carriers is a good number, but six, seven or eight would be better,' he said.

Adm. Thomas made his comments after the U.S. and allies Japan, Australia, Canada and Germany completed a 10-day naval exercise led by Japan in the Pacific.

Belarus Proposes To Host Russian Nukes If NATO Expands Its Arsenal

Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko has again announced his country stands ready to host nuclear weapons provided by Russia on its territory. "We are ready for this on the territory of Belarus," Lukashenko told Russia's RIA news agency in an interview published Tuesday.

Lukashenko held it out as the necessary response in the scenario where NATO would deploy nuclear systems to neighboring Poland. The Belarusian president said he will soon propose this plan to Putin.

In the interview he had been asked to respond to recent comments of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who provoked anger out of Moscow by suggesting the Western military alliance could eventually see its nukes deployed to Eastern European partners.

According to state-run BelTA, the exchange went as follows:

The Belarusian head of state was asked about a recent statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg regarding the possible deployment of nuclear weapons in Eastern Europe.

MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT Russia and West ‘one mistake’ from nuclear conflict in most dangerous moment since Cold War, warns UK admiral

THE world is "one mistake" from all-out nuclear war thanks to Vladimir Putin's "dangerous games" in Eastern Europe, warns an ex-Navy chief.

Moscow is amassing 100,000 troops on its Ukrainian border and is also supporting Belarus dictator Alexander Lukashenko as he "weaponises" migrants against the EU.

And after accusing the US of conducting nuclear bomber drills 20km from its border, the Kremlin said its nuke forces were "on alert" and it had stepped up its military partnership with China.

Admiral Lord West told The Sun Online the situation "is extremely dangerous and risky" with Putin playing "games in the area of grey warfare - things short of war."

He continued: "In terms of the nuclear clock, I think we are closer to midnight than we've been certainly since the 1960s probably.

"And that's because of Russia's silly behaviour in Eastern Europe."

Belarus may invite Russian nuclear weapons into country

Belarus’ leader has said Russia should deploy atomic warheads inside his country’s borders if NATO’s nuclear weapons are advanced eastwards through Poland, amid a growing row with the West.

Speaking in an interview with RIA Novosti on Tuesday, Alexander Lukashenko threatened to increase the amount of deadly hardware facing off across the frontier if American-made nukes are moved further into Eastern Europe.

In that case, Lukashenko said, “I will suggest that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin return nuclear weapons to Belarus.” According to him, the restoration of a Soviet-era nuclear deterrent over the territory using “those atomic armaments would be the most effective in such a case.”

“I am not saying this for no reason,” he went on, “we are ready for this on the territory of Belarus.” Lukashenko, however, did not specify which type of system he wanted to be used, and claimed that this would be “agreed” by the two sides.

Answering a question from a journalist, the NATO chief said that the alleged “increased Russian presence close to Ukraine’s borders is something which is very concerning for many reasons,” calling it “unprovoked and unexplained.”

The 'unstoppable' weapon has been ordered to be manufactured at the top-secret Reutovo plant near Moscow, even before trials have been completed, following several recent successful tests of the Mach-9 munition - the most recent being on November 18.

"Serial production of Tsirkon missiles is underway at NPO Mashinostroyenia (plant), although state trials of this product’s surface launches will continue," according to an anonymous source.

Pentagon Plans to Upgrade Bases in Guam and Australia to Confront China

Countering China is the Pentagon’s top priority, but the GPR does not call for a major reshuffling of forces since the US is still fighting wars in the Middle East and Africa and is working with NATO to further militarize areas near Russia.

A Pentagon official told reporters that the region it calls the Indo-Pacific, which stretches from India to the eastern Pacific, is the “priority theater” and that China is the “pacing challenge” facing the US military. Besides improving bases in Guam and Australia, the GPR also called for more cooperation with allies in the region against Beijing.

The NATOstan Clown Show

American hysteria over the “imminent” Russian invasion of Ukraine has exploded every geopolitical Stupid-o-Meter in sight – and that’s quite an accomplishment.

What a mess. Sections of the U.S. Deep State are in open revolt against the combo that remote controls Crash Test Dummy, who impersonates POTUS. The neocon-neoliberal axis is itching for a war – but has no idea how to sell it to an immensely fractured public opinion.

UKUS, which de facto controls the Five Eyes spy scam, excels only in propaganda. So in the end it’s up to the CIA/MI6 intel axis and their vast network of media chihuahuas to accelerate Fear and Loathing ad infinitum.

Russophobic U.S. Think Tankland would very much cherish a Russian “invasion”, out of the blue, and could not give a damn about the inevitable trouncing of Ukraine. The problem is the White House – and the Pentagon – must “intervene”, forcefully; otherwise that will represent a catastrophic loss of “credibility” for the Empire.

Troops with the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing and the Navy’s 7th Fleet recently conducted “a joint rehearsal of tactics and simulated strikes” off the coast of Japan, according to a recent press release. The training exercise lasted six days; included F/A-18C Hornets and F/A-18E and F Super Hornets, the E-2D, and KC-130J; and involved Marines and sailors based on mainland Japan, Okinawa, or aboard the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier.

“Vladimir the Terrible” Fits the Needs of the U.S. Military-Industrial Complex for an “Evil Foreign Enemy”

Putin is considered a threat because he restored Russian sovereignty, erased the humiliation of the Boris Yeltsin era, and championed Russia’s national interests. But that is just what the U.S. elite could not tolerate.

The U.S. military-industrial complex needs enemies like human lungs need oxygen. When there are no enemies, they must be invented.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Pentagon spin doctors had to search for a new bogeyman to justify their immense $778 billion budget, and its crippling effect on the U.S. economy. If that meant creating a propaganda campaign to paint Panama President Manuel Noriega—a longtime CIA asset—as a mad-dog “threat to American democracy” in order to justify the 1989 invasion of Panama (whose dead have yet to all be counted 32 years later)—well, so be it.

Speaking in an interview on Saturday with the Soloviev LIVE YouTube channel, Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said that “there are… suggestions expressed here, that some desperate head may appear in Ukraine or a group of fighters who will try to test the strength of the Russian defense, counting on the fact that we will not respond… I would like to say and emphasize unequivocally: this is a very dangerous delusion.”

The envoy blasted a purported increase in supplies of American weapons reaching Kiev, potentially including the anti-tank missile system, Javelin. The ambassador said that Washington consistently claims that these weapons are for “defensive” purposes.

An official statement confirmed its full success: it was a real nuclear attack, proof that the fighter carried out at supersonic speed and in stealth attitude (with nuclear bombs placed in its internal hold) has the capability to penetrate through enemy defenses.

The B61-12 has a nuclear warhead with four selectable power options at launch depending on the target to hit. It has the ability to penetrate underground, exploding deep to destroy command center bunkers and other underground structures. The Pentagon’s program foresees the construction of about five hundred B61-12 with an estimated cost of roughly 10 billion dollars (so each bomb will cost double what it would cost if it were built entirely of gold).

Kremlin outlines who it believes is behind ‘hysteria’ around possible Ukraine invasion

Suggestions that Russia is planning an attack on Ukraine are completely groundless, and the entire scenario is being whipped up by media outlets, with the backing of top political leaders in Kiev, the Kremlin claimed on Sunday.

Speaking to the press, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov slammed the accusation as simply “wrong.”

“This hysteria, which is being stirred up now in the Anglo-Saxon media, in the Ukrainian media, and is supported by Ukrainian politicians led by the head of state [President Volodymyr Zelensky], is absolutely unacceptable,” Peskov said.

“The very allegations that Russia is going to attack someone, and accusations that Russia is somehow being aggressive, are completely groundless,” he continued.

US dangerously misguided in believing Russia won’t respond to NATO threat — ambassador

The assumptions heard in the United States that Russia is likely to be frightened with NATO capabilities in Ukraine and the Black Sea are dangerous delusions, Russia’s Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov said on the YouTube channel Soloviev Live on Saturday.

"NATO states are taking over the Black Sea, Ukrainian territory. There are assumptions, which are voiced here, that certain daredevils or a group of combatants may turn up in Ukraine, who will try to test the strength of Russian defenses, expecting that we will not respond fearing the NATO potential. I would like to say and emphasize unequivocally that it is a very dangerous delusion," the diplomat said.

Antonov pointed out that Washington is increasingly expanding the range of weapons delivered to Ukraine.

Russia's relations with the West remain deeply strained amid concerns that thousands of their troops amassed on Ukraine’s border are a prelude to an all-out invasion.

Ukraine’s spy chiefs said they believe a full-scale invasion is planned in the New Year.

The go-ahead for full-scale production of Zircon at a top-secret plant near Moscow follows recent successful tests of the missile.

Most recently, there was a successful test of the hypersonic missile from a frigate in the White Sea on 18 November.

A month earlier the Zircon was fired from a submarine for the first time.

Biden Using Veteran Suicides As Sick Pretext to Target Gun Dealers

As difficult as it is to accept this loss, it is far more difficult to believe anyone would use these deaths to help sell their political agenda, but that is exactly what Joe Biden is doing. -- The Biden-Harris administration is using veteran suicides to garner public support for their war on gun dealers, whom they blame for skyrocketing violent crime rates in cities historically controlled by Democrats.

What war with Russia over Ukraine would really look like

Recent days have seen a new flurry of Western media reports that U.S. intelligence believes that Russia is planning to invade Ukraine early in the new year. These reports have already led to warnings by NATO and Washington that Russia would pay a heavy economic and political price in the event of a war.

Russia, for its part, has denied the dire nature of the reports, blaming “a targeted information campaign,” according to Dmitry Peskov, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, on Monday. “This is building up tension.”

Nevertheless, this should also lead to a determined and sincere new effort by the United States and leading European governments to find a reasonable compromise with Russia over the Ukrainian disputes. For quite apart from the global economic damage that would result from a war in Ukraine, and the ways in which China would take advantage of such a crisis, the West has a very strong reason indeed to avoid a new war: the West would lose.
