Turkey and Israel Are Directly Supporting ISIS and Al Qaeda Terrorists In Syria (Washington’s Blog, Sep 29, 2014):

U.S. Allies Support the Terrorists We’re Supposedly “Fighting”

The Jerusalem Post reports that an ISIS fighter says that Turkey funds the terrorist group. Turkey is a member of NATO and a close U.S. ally.

A German news program – with English subtitles captions – shows that Turkey is sending terrorists into Syria:

Opposition Turkish lawmakers say that the government is protecting and cooperating with ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorists, and providing free medical care to their leaders. Continue reading »

- By mistake? US-led jets bomb grain silos in Syria, ‘civilians killed’ (RT, Sep  29, 2014):

US-led coalition airstrikes destroyed grain silos and other targets in parts of northern and eastern Syria dominated by Islamic State, killing civilians while only wounding ISIS fighters, according to an organization monitoring war in Syria.

The overnight bombings hit mills and grain storage facilities in Manbij, a militant-held town in northern Syria. Coalition forces possibly mistook the structures for Islamic State holdings, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights on Monday.

The US military responded to the claims later Monday morning, according to Reuters, saying that Islamic State vehicles were adjacent to the grain storage facility, and that there is no evidence of civilian casualties.

The United States and Arab allies have conducted airstrikes against Islamic State and other jihadist groups in Syria since last week, and in Iraq since last month. The stated goal of the coalition’s bombing campaign is to cripple Islamic State operations, including bases, combat forces, and supply lines. Islamic State, an Al-Qaeda splinter group that reportedly has as many as 30,000 fighters in the region, has come to control large areas of Syria and northern Iraq since the beginning Continue reading »

- Presenting ISIS-Beating “Mad Max” Battle Tanks And Buses (ZeroHedge, Sep 29, 2014):

When it comes to fighting the barbaric beheaders formerly known as ISIS, Kurdish fighters appear to have gone to the 1979 movie “Mad Max” for inspiration. As The Daily Mail notes, while significantly outgunned by Islamic State, the Kurds have created a fleet of well-armored, elaborately-designed, ominous-looking battle-buses by converting tractors and trucks into tanks…

So to sum up - ISIS (the enemy) is using the latest and greatest US military equipment that it either stole from (or was given) Iraqi military and the Kurdish Peshmurga (our allies) are using tractors and trucks cobbled together with steel plates, duct tape, and surreal images.

Ok…

- Nearly 60 years later, members of the 65th Infantry Regiment, a segregated unit comprised of Puerto Rican soldiers who fought in World War I through the Korean War, are being honored for their service. (News Forage, Sep 28, 2014):

Anibal Albertorio, 84, didn’t expect to be recognized for his service to the U.S. Army as part of the 65th Infantry Regiment, a segregated unit comprised of Puerto Rican soldiers who fought in World War I through the Korean War.

Nearly 60 years later, Albertorio and other members of his regiment are being honored for their service, in spite of discrimination against minority service members at the time. The regiment, known as the “Borinqueneers,” was honored with the Congressional Gold Medal during a recent Hispanic Heritage Awards gala in Washingtion, D.C. The ceremony will be broadcast Monday night on PBS.

“I didn’t expect it after so much time, but thanks to God, they went back and looked at our accomplishments and realized that they were worth recognition,” Albertorio said, who fought with the regiment in 1950 and 1951, said in a telephone interview from Orlando, Florida, where he lives. “I’m proud, humbled and thankful.” Continue reading »

- ​US ‘underestimated’ Islamic State militants in Syria – Obama (RT, Sep 29, 2014):

Publicly announcing that US intelligence agencies “underestimated” the presence and activity of Islamic State militants in Syria, US President Barack Obama in an interview with CBS called the country a “ground zero” for international jihadists.

“Over the past couple of years, during the chaos of the Syrian civil war, where essentially you have huge swaths of the country that are completely ungoverned, they were able to reconstitute themselves and take advantage of that chaos,” Obama said in an interview made on Friday but aired on Sunday.

“And so this became ground zero for jihadists around the world,” he added. Continue reading »

It’s terrifying, basically.


- Lavrov: High time to rearm, Moscow’s military upgrade long overdue (RT, Sep 28, 2014):

Russia’s investment in its military is not a sign of a looming new arms race but rather a long-overdue modernization, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with RT and the VGTRK media corporation.

“I don’t think we are on the verge of a new arms race. At least, Russia definitely won’t be part of it,” the minister said. “In our case, it’s just that the time has come for us to modernize our nuclear and conventional arsenals.”

Lavrov was commenting on the US plan to overhaul its nuclear arsenals, which was announced by President Barack Obama this week.

“The US nuclear arsenal is somewhat younger than ours, but perhaps it is also time for them to upgrade it. I just hope that the US will abide by the provisions of the New START treaty, which are legally binding,” Lavrov said. “It is fine to upgrade your stockpile, replacing old weapons with new ones, but there are certain restrictions on how many weapons you can have, and all these restrictions are still in place.” Continue reading »

- Why Obama is committing 3000 troops to fight Ebola (Vox, Sep 16, 2014):

“This is an epidemic that is not just a threat to regional security. It’s a potential threat to global security, if these countries break down, if their economies break down, if people panic,” he said. “That has profound effects on all of us, even if we are not directly contracting the disease.” This outbreak is already “spiraling out of control,” he added.

“The reality is this epidemic is going to get worse before it gets better.”

Like the economy, right?

So far, more than 2,400 people have died this year from Ebola — more than the combined total of all previous outbreaks since the first recorded in 1976 — and the epidemic has spread to five African nations, including Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, and Senegal.

High-density population areas of Sierra Leone have just been locked down in the largest pandemic quarantine in history, and it’s already causing a collapse of the food delivery infrastructure. The local government says forced isolation orders will remain in effect until Ebola is eradicated. This essentially means that millions of people are now under a state of military quarantine until they either become immune to Ebola or die from it.

“President Ernest Bai Koroma put Port Loko, Bombali, and Moyamba districts under isolation with immediate effect, allowing only people delivering essential services to enter and circulate within these areas,” reports Associated Press.

Making Up For Lost Time: US Drops ‘A Month Of Bombs’ On Syria In One Night (ZeroHedge, Sep 24, 2014):

Never one to miss out on some heavy “shock and awe”, Bloomberg reports that the U.S. dropped almost as many bombs and missiles on Islamic State positions in Syria in its first night of airstrikes there as it did in the first month of attacks on the extremist group in Iraq. It appears American foreign policy comes down to this, “it’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission,” as the offensive unleashed 200 precision-guided munitions including 47 Tomahawk cruise missiles, and also got to play with its new F-22 toy in its first combat mission. The first night of airstrikes was “only the beginning,” Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon’s spokesman, told reporters.

The “allied” airbases…

20140924_ISIS2

As Bloomberg reports, the U.S. dropped almost as many bombs and missiles on Islamic State positions in Syria in its first night of airstrikes there as it did in the first month of attacks on the extremist group in Iraq.

The offensive two nights ago, joined by five Arab nations, used about 200 munitions, most of them precision-guided, as well as some of 47 Tomahawk cruise missiles that were launched from two warships, according to U.S. Central Command. That rivals the 253 bombs and missiles aimed at the Sunni terrorist group’s positions in neighboring Iraq from Aug. 8 to Sept. 10. Continue reading »

- Russia Holds Massive Military Drill: 155,000 Troops, 4,000 Tanks, 632 Aircraft, 84 Ships (ZeroHedge, Sep 23, 2014):

At what point is a drill more than just a drill? Maybe when it is so massive it could be confused for an invasion force, involving a mindblowing 155,000 troops, more than the armies of most sovereign nations, 4,000 armoured vehicles, 632 planes and helicopters and 84 vessels. Those are the staggering numbers taking part in the Vostok-2014 strategic exercises, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, and whose main priority is ti “demonstrate that the degree of combat preparedness in Russian troops has risen.” One almost wonders why…

Last night’s airstrikes on ISIS in Syria came as a surprise to some (though apparently not ISIS who local reporters note had time to move weapons and personnel) as President Obama – and his local arab nation allies (acting in support), though notably no Western nations – unleashed hell on Assad’s sovereign territory. The first stirrings of responses from Russia have been creeping out and now Israel is involved in the anti-ISIS coalition. The State Department has just confirmed that they did not give advance warning to the Syrian regime. If you are playing along at home, key words include “broad coalition”, “Assad still a bad guy”, “Vladimir who?”, and “not Muslim.”

- Israel Joins The Fighting, Shoots Down Syrian Warplane Which Acted In “Threatening Manner” (Zerohedge, Sep 23, 2014):

Whether as a result of recent icy to quite icy diplomatic relations between the two nations, or just because it has other motives, Israel had clearly abstained from joining the US effort to contain the CIA-created ISIS terrorist juggernaut. However, overnight, with the US finally doing what Israel has hoped it would do for so long, namely being engaged in a bombing campaign of Syria (recall that it was Israel which was one of the biggest supporters of a US-led military intervention in Syria in the summer of 2013), it decided “hell, why not” and joined the fray, when shortly before 3 am Eastern time, this hit:

  • ISRAELI SAYS IT DOWNED SYRIAN AIRCRAFT IN ISRAELI AIRSPACE
  • ISRAELI ARMY SAYS DOWNED SYRIAN AIRCRAFT WAS FIGHTER JET

Quite notable because it was the first time in three decades that Israel had downed a Syrian warplane, so Israel needed a strong pretext for such aggression. An aggression, incidentally, not against ISIS, but Assad’s regime itself, which clearly is what Obama’s latest operation is all about – to take down a sovereign while doing the bidding of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, just like in 2013.

And then Israel, oddly, revised the story:

  • ISRAEL SHOOTS DOWN SYRIAN WARPLANE NEAR BORDER: ISRAEL ARMY

So… it may not have been in Israel airspace. But then, why? Oh, here’s why:

In attacking ISIS, critics say that Obama now waging boundless, endless war

Despite calls for diplomacy and peace, the United States launched airstrikes against Syria early Tuesday targeting Islamic State (or ISIS) fighters, marking the first bombing of that nation since President Barack Obama declared he had all authority needed to conduct such strikes without congressional approval.

According to U.S. Central Command, the attacks struck 14 targets and were carried out with a “mix of fighter, bomber, remotely piloted aircraft and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles.” It was conducted with support from five partner Arab nations: the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that 160 people were killed during Monday’s attack on Syria including 31 civilians. Continue reading »

Last night’s headlines crowed in bright red flashing text that Russia and Ukraine had (once again) agreed a cease-fire and terms over the borders between the two nations. Perhaps not surprisingly, mere hours later, Ukraine is claiming that Russia has broken the truce… with the use of a tactical nuclear weapon at Luhansk airport. This comes on the heels of claims by the pro-Russia separatists that Kiev forces destroyed a massive military plant in Donetsk. Russia’s defense ministry flatly denies the ‘nuclear strikes’ adding that “no reasonable person will take them seriously.” This truce-breaking action has once again raised calls among Ukrainians for the nation to get its nuclear status back; something Russia is clearly strongly against.

Then overnight, none other than the US did the same when two F-22 fighter jets intercepted six Russian military airplanes just over 50 miles away from the western coast of Alaska, military officials said Friday, among which identified as two IL-78 refueling tankers, two Mig-31 fighter jets and the same two “Bear” long-range bombers, which are known to carry tactical ICBMs with nuclear warheads among their arsenal.
