Air Force To Recall Up To 1,000 Retired Military Pilots After Trump Unexpectedly Revises Sept 11 Executive Order

  • Air Force To Recall Up To 1,000 Retired Military Pilots After Trump Unexpectedly Revises Sept 11 Executive Order
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    In an unexpected development, President Donald Trump has signed an executive order allowing the Air Force to recall up to 1,000 retired pilots to address what the Pentagon has described as “an acute shortage of pilots,” Fox News reported.

    The order, which Trump signed Friday, amends an emergency declaration signed by George W. Bush in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. The Air Force is only allowed to recall up to 25 pilots under current law. The order signed by Trump temporarily removes that cap for all branches of the military.

    A Pentagon spokesman, Navy Cmdr. Gary Ross, said in a statement that the Air Force is currently “short approximately 1,500 pilots of its requirements.” That number includes approximately 1,200 fighter pilots.

For The First Time In 26 Years, US To Put Nuclear Bombers On 24 Hour Alert

  • For The First Time In 26 Years, US To Put Nuclear Bombers On 24 Hour Alert
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    The unexpected decision by President Trump to amend an emergency Sept 11 order signed by George W Bush, allowing the Air Force to recall up to 1,000 retired air force pilots to address what the Pentagon has decribed as “an acute shortage of pilots” caught us by surprise. After all, this was the first time we have heard of this particular labor shortage – perhaps there was more to this executive order than meets the eye. Indeed, a just released report may help explain the reasoning behind this presidential decision.

    According to Defense One, the US Air Force is preparing to put nuclear-armed bombers back on 24-hour ready alert, a status not seen since the Cold War ended in 1991.

US Sanctioning of IRGC (Iran Military) ‘Beyond Insanity’: Duff

Click on image for audio interview.

  • US Sanctioning of IRGC (Iran Military) ‘Beyond Insanity’: Duff
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    It is “beyond insanity” for the United States to accuse the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps of wrongdoing despite its record in fighting terror, says an American analyst, noting that Washington is in no place to criticize others given its long list of “criminal activities.”

    Gordon Duff, a senior analyst with Veterans Today, told Press TV on Sunday that the elite force had done “exceptionally well” in fighting terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria. He made the remarks in reaction to reports that the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was planning to introduce new sanctions against the elite force.

    Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, Mnuchin said he had already discussed the matter with his counterparts in other countries at the latest meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

    “The idea of sanctioning these people is pure insanity,” Duff said, before going on to criticize Washington’s policy of slapping sanctions against other nations, which he described as a declaration of war. A Vietnam veteran himself, Duff drew an analogy between Trump’s claims against the IRGC and thousands of US soldiers taking part the wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, saying they had to be blacklisted as well.

    “Any American military that has fought in Iraq… the 2003 invasion is universally seen as a criminal act,” he argued. “Everyone involved, 500,000 Americans could easily be put under some kind of sanction or blacklist.”

    The analyst noted that American military contractors had even helped accelerate the production of drugs and narcotics in Afghanistan but “nobody questions that.” “So for the US to talk about blacklisting, for the US to talk about sanctions, the US that have been involved in so many criminal activities, it is beyond insanity,” he concluded.

    The sanctions are part of US President Donald Trump’s new strategy against Tehran, which he unveiled on Friday by refusing to certify the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries—the US, the UK, France, China, Russia and Germany. The Republican president also said in his speech that his administration was going to place “tough sanctions” on the IRGC.

Deadly Conflicts: More Than 260,000 Afghan Civilians Lost Homes After US Bombings

  • RT Published on Oct 13, 2017
    Civilian casualties from air strikes in Afghanistan have increased by more than 50% compared to last year. Over 266,000 people have also been displaced since January, and are now living in makeshift shelters. RT talked to noted whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers detailing America’s real motives behind the 1970s Vietnam War. He believes there’s much to be exposed about the Afghan campaign too.

‘Deep State Jake’ Tapper & MSM Manufacture Pro-War Attitudes – Journalist

  • RT America Published on Oct 6, 2017
    A recent study by the Chicago Council of Global Affairs finds that Americans seem to have developed a new taste for war. Why the shift in our collective views on military intervention? Journalist Max Blumenthal tells RT America’s Manila Chan that the numbers reflect “a concerted campaign by the mainstream media and the national security state” to bring the public views in line with the elites’ agenda.

Whose Bright Idea Was RussiaGate?

  • Whose Bright Idea Was RussiaGate?
    by Paul Craig Roberts, http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/
    The answer to the question in the title of this article is that Russiagate was created by CIA director John Brennan. The CIA started what is called Russiagate in order to prevent Trump from being able to normalize relations with Russia. The CIA and the military/security complex need an enemy in order to justify their huge budgets and unaccountable power. Russia has been assigned that role. The Democrats joined in as a way of attacking Trump. They hoped to have him tarnished as cooperating with Russia to steal the presidential election from Hillary and to have him impeached. I don’t think the Democrats have considered the consequence of further worsening the relations between the US and Russia.

    Public Russia bashing pre-dates Trump. It has been going on privately in neoconservative circles for years, but appeared publicly during the Obama regime when Russia blocked Washington’s plans to invade Syria and to bomb Iran.

    Russia bashing became more intense when Washington’s coup in Ukraine failed to deliver Crimea. Washington had intended for the new Ukrainian regime to evict the Russians from their naval base on the Black Sea. This goal was frustrated when Crimea voted to rejoin Russia.

    The neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony requires the principal goal of US foreign policy to be to prevent the rise of other countries that can serve as a restraint on US unilateralism. This is the main basis for the hostility of US foreign policy toward Russia, and of course there also is the material interests of the military/security complex.

    Russia bashing is much larger than merely Russiagate. The danger lies in Washington convincing Russia that Washington is planning a surprise attack on Russia. With US and NATO bases on Russia’s borders, efforts to arm Ukraine and to include Ukraine and Georgia in NATO provide more evidence that Washington is surrounding Russia for attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than convincing a nuclear power that you are going to attack.

    Washington is fully aware that there was no Russian interference in the presidential election or in the state elections. The military/security complex, the neoconservatives, and the Democratic Party are merely using the accusations to serve their own agendas. These selfish agendas are a dire threat to life on earth.

US Increasing Military Spending to Maintain Global Hegemony: Expert

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Sep 29, 2017
    The United States is spending a prodigious amount on its military in order to maintain global hegemony, as the US economy is totally dependent on military spending, according to Professor Dennis Etler, an American political analyst who has a decades-long interest in international affairs.

BOMBSHELL ADMISSION: Eurocrat Reveals Bloc’s Defence Plans ARE Designed to Create EU Army

Daniel 7:7 – ” … behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.”

  • BOMBSHELL ADMISSION: Eurocrat Reveals Bloc’s Defence Plans ARE Designed to Create EU Army
    by NICK GUTTERIDGE, BRUSSELS CORRESPONDENT, http://www.express.co.uk/
    A SENIOR eurocrat last night made the stunning admission that Brussels’ new defence policies are ultimately being used as a backdoor way of creating its own EU army.

    Gunther Oettinger, the bloc’s finance chief and a close confidante of Angela Merkel, said his “dream” of a euro force will be achieved incrementally through the slow entanglement of European militaries. The German eurocrat, who appeared on the podium next to Mrs Merkel as she delivered her election victory speech on Sunday, added the EU’s current defence plans are the “first step” on that journey. 

    His frank outburst will be greeted with dismay by other senior EU officials, including foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini, who have tried to portray the ‘Defence Union’ in a more friendly light as a simple way of improving cooperation. Speaking about the proposals back in March, the Italian eurocrat said: “It is not the European army – I know this is the label that is going around – but it is a more effective way of handling our military work.”

Mattis: US’s Survival Depends on Military Spending

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Sep 24, 2017
    These are the headlines we are tracking for you in this episode of On the News Line:

    1. Mattis: US’s survival depends on military spending
    The United States has by far the largest military budget in the world. It spends more than the next nine largest spenders combined together. But US president Donald Trump has been pushing to funnel more money to the military. A few days ago, the US Senate approved a 700 billion dollar military policy bill demanded by Trump. Since coming into office this year, Trump has developed close ties with the US military industrial complex. Trump’s U turn on the war in Afghanistan, intensified US airstrikes in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq, as well as America’s militarism on the Korean peninsula are being partly blamed on Trump’s links with weapons manufacturers. The United States massive arms deal with the autocratic regime of Saudi Arabia was another gift from Trump to major arms companies. The military industrial complex has been enjoying a booming business under Trump, but its insatiable appetite is hard to satisfy.

    2. Signing of the UN nuke ban treaty
    The signing ceremony of a nuclear weapons ban treaty at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Representatives of world nations take turns to sign the treaty. The United States, Britain, France and other nuclear armed states boycotted the event. The UN chief has underlined that the accord is the product of rising concern over the threat posed by the nuclear weapons. Many have found the low number of the signatories to the accord as disappointing.
