In Latest US-China Escalation, Beijing Denies US Aircraft Carrier Access To Hong Kong Port:

What until now was mostly effete jawboning over US complaints surrounding China’s territorial expansion ambitions in the South China Sea, including the occasional sailing of a US ship deep inside the disputed territorial waters (with zero impact especially now that China may soon start building maritime nuclear power plants in the area), changed dramatically earlier today when China officially denied a U.S. carrier strike group’s request for a port visit to Hong Kong next week.

As Stripes writes, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs notified the United States Thursday of its decision to deny the USS John C. Stennis and its escort ships access to the former British colony, Darragh Paradiso, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong, said by phone. The ministry provided no explanation for the move. Continue reading »

Joint Chiefs Chairman Admits: US Troops in Iraq in Combat Operations:

Speaking yesterday at the Senate Armed Services Committee, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Joe Dunford confirmed that US troops in Iraq are “fighting and dying” in combat operations, confirming that the October 22 death of a Army sergeant was in combat.

That admission is a big one, as US officials have danced around the question of “combat troops” by presenting the troops being deployed to Iraq, and elsewhere in the region, as “trainers” or “advisers” in official comments. Continue reading »

Russian Fighter Jet Flies Within 50 Feet Of US Spy Plane Over Russian Naval Base:

Tensions continue to escalate between the US and Russia. As a reminder, Russia conducted several close encounter fly-bys when first a Russian Su-24 “buzzed” the US missile destroyer USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea, and just days later flew within 50 feet of a US recon plane also flying over the Baltic Sea. The U.S. quickly responded and complained vocally to Russia, followed quickly by the first deployment of US F-22 stealth fighter to Romania, in close proximity to both the Black Sea and 400 km from the Russian military stronghold of Sevastopol on the Crimean Peninsula.

It now appears there was a third incident involving an extremely close encounter. According to the Free Beacon, a Russian MiG-31 jet flew within 50 feet of a U.S. surveillance aircraft in Northeast Asia last week, in what was dubbed “Moscow’s latest aerial saber-rattling” against American ships and planes by US defense officials.

Congress Fixes “Sexist” Draft – Votes To Require Women To Register For Selection:

With all the problems facing America – both at home and abroad – The House Armed Services Committee decided on Wednesday to solve one of the nation’s crucial “problems” – a “sexist draft.”

As Military.com reports on Wednesday the committee approved (by a narrow margin) an amendment to a defense bill to require women to register for the draft.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Republican from California, proposed the amendment to lift the restriction on women registering for the selective service at a committee-wide mark-up session of the proposed fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Continue reading »

Israeli general warns of ‘devastating war’ with Hezbollah:

JERUSALEM — A top Israeli military leader on Wednesday issued a stern warning to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, saying any future war between the two enemies will unleash “devastating” damage on Lebanon.

Maj. Gen. Yair Golan, Israel’s deputy chief of staff, told foreign journalists that Hezbollah has developed capabilities that present “unprecedented” threats to Israel. Israel estimates the group has over 100,000 rockets and missiles in its arsenal.

Golan said any future war will be “much harsher” than anything experienced in the past 20 years.

“In any future crisis, they are not going to see a small war in Lebanon. It’s going to be decisive. It’s going to be full-scale war,” he said.

US Empire Goes Berserk: Unleashes Legal Jackals On All Perceived Enemies For Financial Expropriation:

Economic Subversion and Financial Terrorism, Monetary Collapse and Corporate Sabotage are the Main Tools by which the Anglo-American Empire Maintains Its Ascendancy

SOTN Editor’s Note:

This is how the United States of America continues to run its tyranny around the world. Because the U.S. Armed Forces are now spread so thin as the global Anglo-American Empire starts to collapse, the USA has no alternative but to wage financial and legal wars against all of its perceived enemies.   Those fabricated enemies all have one thing in common—money and resources. It is the same criminal NWO cabal that controls the U.S. Federal Government which has relentlessly targeted these resource-rich and currency-wealthy adversaries. Continue reading »

US-NATO Military Escalation on Russia’s Doorstep, Deployment of “Nuclear Attack Units”. Moscow Has Issued Warning

The United States feigned surprise during the simulation of an attack by the Russian aviation against the USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea. And yet, as we have reported, Russia already has the capacity to block the ship’s Communications & Commands, and did so, observes Manlio Dinucci, because the ship was in the process of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). Furthermore, the US nuclear deployment occurred as China is developing hypersonic launchers, a part of whose trajectory will be in glide mode, inspiring new research by DARPA. As from now, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin are participating in the Tactical Boost Glide Program.

For The First Time US Deploys Two F-22 Raptors Close To Russia To “Deter Aggression”:

Tensions are rapidly escalating between the US and Russia following last week two fly-bys when first a Russian Su-24 “buzzed” the US missile destroyer USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea, and just days later flew within 50 feet of a US recon plane also flying over the Baltic Sea, which some interpreted as a Russian warning to Poland. The U.S. quickly responded and complained vocally to Russia (even if Obama did not mention the incident during his phone call with Putin immediately following the incident).

Russia, in turn, promptly responded by accusing the United States last Wednesday of intimidation by sailing a U.S. naval destroyer close to Russia’s border in the Baltics and warned that the Russian military would respond with “all necessary measures” to any future incidents. Continue reading »

Russia Threatens U.S., Will Respond With “All Necessary Means” To Any NATO Intimidation Attempts:

Last week, the US Navy and Air force were livid when Russian fighter jets first buzzed the US missile destroyer USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea, and just days later flew within 50 feet of a US recon plane also flying over the Baltic Sea, which some interpreted as a Russian warning to Poland. The U.S. escalated and complained vocally to Russia (even if Obama did not mention the incident during his phone call with Putin last week).

However, if anyone was expecting Russia to politely apologize to the U.S. for last week’s two “flybys”, they would be drastically disappointed, because as Reuters reported overnight, it was Russia who accused the United States on Wednesday of intimidation by sailing a U.S. naval destroyer close to Russia’s border in the Baltics and warned that the Russian military would respond with “all necessary measures” to any future incidents.

Caught On Tape: When A Humvee Paradrop Goes Terribly Wrong:

Forget helicopter money, in Germany it’s raining Humvees…

During an airdrop in Hohenfels, Germany, three HMMWV’s (Humvees) detached from their parachutes and plummeted to the ground.

As The Tactical Air Network reports that the 173rd Airborne Brigade dropped HMMWVs from their C130 aircraft, only to lose three “Hummers” to our good friend “gravity.”

It all looked so easy in Furious 7? On the bright side, Keynesians will be rejoicing!! Think of the clean-up involved and the demand for labor that creates and the need to spend to replace those 3 piles of trash – otherwsie known as The Broken Humvee Fallacy.

Back in 2014 Obama promised that as part of the US war against ISIS, there would be “no ground troops in Iraq.” Moments ago U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter gave the latest confirmation that Obama was not being exactly “honest”, when during a visit to Baghdad in which he met U.S. commanders, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, and Iraqi Defence Minister Khaled al-Obeidi, he announced that the US would send another 200 additional troops, raising the number of U.S. troops in Iraq to about 4,100.

Whitewashing Cold-Blooded Israeli Murder:

By Steven J. Lendman

Israeli soldiers and police kill Palestinians with impunity. Open-fire regulations permit it, authorizing extrajudicial executions. Investigations when conducted are routinely whitewashed.

High-ranking military and police officials enjoy virtual immunity from prosecutions and convictions of crimes just societies don’t tolerate, lawbreakers held fully accountable.

On July 3, 2015, B’Tselem research and security camera video footage showed Binyamin Brigade commander Col. Yisrael Shomer willfully, without just cause, lethally shot 17-year-old Muhammad ‘Ali-Kosba – striking his upper body three times, once in the head. Continue reading »

I’m on the Kill List. This is what it feels like to be hunted by drones:

I am in the strange position of knowing that I am on the ‘Kill List’. I know this because I have been told, and I know because I have been targeted for death over and over again. Four times missiles have been fired at me. I am extraordinarily fortunate to be alive.

I don’t want to end up a “Bugsplat” – the ugly word that is used for what remains of a human being after being blown up by a Hellfire missile fired from a Predator drone. More importantly, I don’t want my family to become victims, or even to live with the droning engines overhead, knowing that at any moment they could be vaporized. Continue reading »

“Aggressive” Russian Fighter Jets Buzz US Warship; Navy Releases Videos:

In a rerun of what happened two years ago when in April 2014 a Russian Su-24 fighter jet flew repeatedly within 1000 yards of a US warship, CNN reports that the Pentagon is furious that while sailing in the Baltic Sea, US warship the USS Donald Cook had two “extremely close overflights” by unarmed Russian fighter jets.

According to the initial reports, two concerning encounters occurred Tuesday night in international waters. A third overflight, at a more acceptable distance, happened Sunday, according to the source.

Donald Cook 3_0

CNN adds that the ship, an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, also had a Polish helicopter on board as part of routine training, according to the official, leading to some speculation in military circles that the Russians were also “sending a message to Poland,” the official said.

Defense Secretary Says US Will Accelerate War in Iraq ‘as Fast as We Can’

Speaking today during a visit to the naval command ship USS Blue Ridge, Defense Secretary Ash Carter insisted that the ongoing political battles within the Iraqi government will in no way impact the ongoing efforts to escalate America’s war against ISIS on Iraqi soil.

We’re going to accelerate the military campaign as fast as we can,” Carter declared. It is believed that the escalating US involvement is going to include significantly more ground troops, along with the introduction of Apache attack helicopters. Continue reading »

Iran Releases Video Showing Arrival Of First Russian S-300 Missile System:

Over the past year, the US State Department had repeatedly objected to the proposed Russian delivery of S-300 missile defense systems to Iran. One year ago, the issue first came up when as CNN reported then John Kerry raised objections with Moscow over a plan to sell advanced missile defense systems to Iran. The White House said Kerry made the US opposition clear in a phone call to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

It wasn’t just Kerry: the Pentagon also expressed concern about the move, saying it was “unhelpful.” At the time, Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren told reporters that “our opposition to these sales is long and public. We believe it’s unhelpful. We are raising that through the appropriate diplomatic channels.” Continue reading »

The Western imperialist powers want to establish their own military bases in Libya in order to control the country’s massive sources of oil and natural gas, and secure an important gateway to Africa.

For months, the North African country has seen a secret build-up of American, British, French and Italian agents and officers, while reconnaissance and armed drones controlled from Sigonella in Sicily have conducted surveillance missions and air strikes in Libya. Continue reading »
