Pentagon Chief Outlines Preparations for Nuclear War with Russia

WW3 is near?

WW3 is near?

  • Pentagon Chief Outlines Preparations for Nuclear War with Russia
    by Bill Van Auken, 28 September 2016, http://www.wsws.org/  
    US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter delivered a speech to “missileers” at the Air Force Global Strike Command base in Minot, North Dakota Monday, defending the massive modernization of the US nuclear arsenal and issuing bellicose threats against Russia.

    Carter’s trip to Minot was the first he has taken to a nuclear missile base since becoming secretary of defense in February 2015. It coincided with the steady escalation of conflicts pitting the US against nuclear-armed Russia and China that threaten to ignite a new world war.

    The thrust of Carter’s speech was a defense of the Pentagon’s proposed $348 billion plan to rebuild Washington’s so-called nuclear triad of strategic bombers, missiles and submarines. Estimates are that over a 30-year period, this nuclear buildup will siphon fully $1 trillion out of the American economy.

    Delivered to the officers and enlisted personnel tasked with launching Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles, each carrying warheads with 60 times the destructive capacity of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, the speech at times seemed to echo the title of the satiric 1964 film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

    This massive US death machine, Carter insisted, provided “the bedrock of security” that has “enabled millions and millions to get up in the morning to go to school, to go to work, to live their lives, to dream their dreams and to give their children a better future.”

    He went on to predict that “given what we see in today’s security environment, it’s also likely that our children and their children will probably have to live in a world where nuclear weapons exist.” In reality, assuming the continuation of the present “security environment” and the continued existence of nuclear weapons, there is good reason to fear that the world will be incinerated in the lifetimes of “our children and their children.”

    While using the anodyne Pentagon jargon of “our nuclear enterprise” to refer to the US nuclear war arsenal, Carter’s speech contained passages hinting at the undeniable fact that the threat of a nuclear conflagration is now greater than at any time since the height of the Cold War.He warned that while “in the more than seven decades since 1945, nuclear weapons have not again been used in war, that’s not something we can ever take for granted.”

Philippines President: Upcoming War Games with US ‘The Last One”

  • Published on Sep 29, 2016
    The Philippines will not hold any joint military exercises with its long-standing ally, the United States. President Rodrigo Duterte says next week’s war games will be the last such drills involving Filipino and American troops. He says the upcoming exercises will take place only because he doesn’t want to embarrass his defense secretary. According to Duterte, he has decided to scrap the annual drills because China is opposed to them. The controversial leader, however, insists that Manila will maintain its military alliance with Washington. Since taking office in June, Duterte has moved toward China in a bid to revive strained ties. He says he wants a foreign policy NOT dependent on the US.

Saudis Could Pull Billions from US Economy, Hinder Access to Mideast Bases Following 9/11 Lawsuits

  • Saudis Could Pull Billions from US Economy, Hinder Access to Mideast Bases Following 9/11 Lawsuits
    by https://www.rt.com/  
    Saudi Arabia and its allies could retaliate against US legislation allowing the kingdom to be sued for the 9/11 attacks, including scaling back investment in the US economy or restricting access to important regional air bases, experts claim.

    “This should be clear to America and to the rest of the world. When one Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) state is targeted unfairly, the others stand around it,” Abdulkhaleq Abdullah, a professor of political science at United Arab Emirates University, told Associated Press. “All the states will stand by Saudi Arabia in every way possible.”

    On Wednesday, Congress overwhelmingly voted to override President Barack Obama’s veto of the bill that would allow Americans to potentially sue Saudi Arabia for 9/11. Lawmakers said their priority was not Saudi Arabia, but victims and families.

    The “Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA)” would allow US judges to waive sovereign immunity claims when dealing with acts of terrorism committed on American soil – potentially allowing lawsuits against Saudi Arabia over the 9/11 attacks. 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals.

    Chas Freeman, former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm, told AP that Saudi Arabia could respond in a way that risks US strategic interests. That could include Saudi restricting its rules for overflight between Europe and Asia and the Qatari air base from which US military operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria are directed, Freeman says.

    “The souring of relations and curtailing of official contacts that this legislation would inevitably produce could also jeopardize Saudi cooperation against anti-American terrorism,” Freeman told AP.

    Obama vetoed JASTA last week, saying it would erode the doctrine of sovereign immunity and expose the US to lawsuits around the world. He argued the bill could lead to other governments acting “reciprocally” by allowing their own courts to exercise jurisdiction over the US, including over deadly US drone strikes.

    Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in June that the US has the most to lose if JASTA is enacted. There have been reports that Riyadh threatened to pull billions of dollars from the US economy if the bill became law, however al-Jubeir has only officially said investor confidence in the US could decline.

American Allies Accused of Arming Jihadist Group Al-Nusra Front (Al Qaeda in Syria)

  • Published on Sep 27, 2016
    US weapons are being delivered to Jabhat Al-Nusra by governments that Washington supports, a militant commander told the German media, adding that American instructors were in Syria to teach how to use the new equipment. The State Department maintains, however, that Al-Nusra is a terrorist group and that the US will never provide it with any aid, but did admit that unnamed US allies might be backing the jihadist militants in Syria. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports.

Obama Humiliated: For The First Time, Congress Votes To Override President’s “Sept 11” Bill Veto

  • The Saudis will retaliate by dumping US treasuries and the dollar! Interest rates will shoot up.
  • Obama Humiliated: For The First Time, Congress Votes To Override President’s “Sept 11” Bill Veto
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    Summary: US Congress, first the Senate and then the House, humiliated the president when it voted on Wednesday to override Obama for the first time in his eight-year tenure, as the House rejected a veto of legislation allowing families of terrorist victims to sue Saudi Arabia. The House easily cleared the two-thirds threshold with a 348-77 vote to push back against the veto. The Senate voted 97-1 in favor of the override earlier in the day, with only Democratic Leader Harry Reid voting to sustain the president’s veto.

    “We can no longer allow those who injure and kill Americans to hide behind legal loopholes denying justice to the victims of terror,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). The White House immediately slammed lawmakers following the Senate vote.

    Update: moments ago the House also overrode Obama’s veto, meaning that as of this moment, the Sept 11 bill is now law.

    * HOUSE HAS VOTES TO OVERRIDE VETO OF SAUDI BILL, VOTE ONGOING

    This is the first time an Obama veto has been overriden by Congress.

US “First Use/Preemptive” Nuclear War Policy Provocation to Russia And China

  • Published on Sep 28, 2016
    An announcement by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter that the US is not pursuing a “no-first-use” policy with regard to its nuclear weapons is a provocation to Russia and other countries, says a political analyst.
  • Obama Flinches at Renouncing Nuke First Strike
    by https://consortiumnews.com/  
    Exclusive: The U.S. threat to launch a first-strike nuclear attack has little real strategic value – though it poses a real risk to human survival – but President Obama fears political criticism if he changes the policy, as Jonathan Marshall explains.

    By Jonathan Marshall
    Time is running short for President Obama to make good on his 2009 promise “to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons,” for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet as both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times recently reported, Obama’s advisers may have just nixed the single most important reform advocated by arms control advocates: a formal pledge that the United States will never again be the first country to use nuclear weapons in a conflict.

    Ever since President Truman ordered two atomic bombs dropped on Japan in 1945, the United States has reserved the right to initiate nuclear war against an overwhelming conventional, chemical or biological attack on us or our allies. But peace advocates — and more than a few senior military officers — have long warned that resorting to nuclear weapons would ignite a global holocaust, killing hundreds of millions of people.

    In a talk to the annual meeting of the Arms Control Association on June 6, Deputy National Security Advisor Benjamin Rhodes promised that President Obama would continue to review ways to achieve his grand vision of a nuclear-free world during his last months in office. Obama was reportedly considering a “series of executive actions” to that end, including a landmark shift to a “no first use” policy.

    Two-thirds of adult Americans surveyed support such a policy. So do 10 U.S. senators who wrote President Obama in July, proposing a no-first-use declaration to “reduce the risk of accidental nuclear conflict” and seeking cut-backs in his trillion dollar plan for nuclear modernization over the next 30 years.

    But Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz (who oversees the nuclear stockpile), and Secretary of State John Kerry all warned during a National Security Council meeting in July that declaring a policy of “no first use” would alarm America’s allies, undercut U.S. credibility, and send a message of weakness to the Kremlin at a time of tense relations with Russia.

Clinton Received Debate Questions Week Before Debate, According to Sources

Malcom_X

  • Clinton Received Debate Questions Week Before Debate, According to Sources
    by http://baltimoregazette.com/  
    The first presidential debate was held and Hillary Clinton was proclaimed the winner by the media. Indeed Clinton was able to turn in a strong debate performance, but did she do so fairly? Multiple reports and leaked information from inside the Clinton camp claim that the Clinton campaign was given the entire set of debate questions an entire week before the actual debate.

    Earlier last week an NBC intern was seen hand delivering a package to Clinton’s campaign headquarters, according to sources. The package was not given to secretarial staff, as would normally happen, but the intern was instead ushered into the personal office of Clinton campaign manager Robert Mook. Members of the Clinton press corps from several media organizations were in attendance at the time, and a reporter from Fox News recognized the intern, but said he was initially confused because the NBC intern was dressed like a Fed Ex employee.

    The reporter from Fox questioned campaign staff about the intern, but campaign staff at first claimed ignorance and then claimed that it was just a Fed Ex employee who had already left. No reporters present who had seen the intern dressed as a Fed Ex employee go into Mook’s office saw him leave by the same front entrance. The Fox reporter who recognized the intern also immediately looked outside of the campaign headquarters and noted that there were no Fed Ex vehicles parked outside.

    Clinton seemed to have scripted responses ready for every question she was asked at the first debate. She had facts and numbers memorized for specific questions that it is very doubtful she would have had without being furnished the questions beforehand. The entire mainstream media has specifically been trying to portray Trump as a racist and a poor candidate. By furnishing Clinton with the debate questions NBC certainly hoped to make Clinton appear much more knowledgeable and competent than Trump. And though it is unlikely that anyone will be able to conclusively prove that Clinton was given the debate questions, it seems both logical and likely.

US Ambassador to UN Hints at Removal of Russia From Security Council Over Syria

Curtis_Dall_United_Nations

United_Nations_CFR_Council_on_Foreign_Relations

  • Samantha Power is a pathological lying snake. Syria DID NOT attack America nor the West. Syria HAS NOT threatened American nor western interests. So why is America and the west invading Syria and waging a war of aggression against Syria? The deployment of western forces on Syrian territory is ILLEGAL under international law.
  • The United Nations is a tool, a creation of the Anglo-American western Illuminati.
  • US Ambassador to UN Hints at Removal of Russia From Security Council Over Syria
    by https://sputniknews.com/  
    The US Ambassador to the United Nations claims that Russia is responsible for the horrors that have descended upon Syria, but remained silent about the 1.5 million civilians whose water was shut off by US-backed rebels.

    The United States Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power blamed Russia for the surge in violence in Syria after the ceasefire agreement collapsed last week following a US-led airstrike in Deir Ez-Zor that killed 62 Syrian Army soldiers and left scores injured causing fighting to intensify to a breaking point.

    Russia points to the over 300 ceasefire violations by US-backed Syrian rebels in the first days of the ceasefire and the refusal of the so-called ‘moderates’ to adhere to the conditions of the agreement forged by Russia and the United States which called for the rebels to disassociate with the terror group Al-Nusra Front, Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate until a recent rebrand.

    The United Nations Security Council met on Sunday at the request of the US, Britain and France to discuss the deteriorating situation in the city of Aleppo as the Assad government escalated airstrikes in an effort to tighten the siege and break a longstanding stalemate with the opposition rebels. On Thursday, the rebels allege that the Syrian Army Air Force struck a facility compromising the water supply for some 250,000 residents of rebel-held East Aleppo.

    In an unprecedented act of terroristic reprisal the rebels shut off the water supply for 1.5 million residents in government controlled West Aleppo causing an almost unheard of humanitarian toll with UNICEF raising the alarm of an imminent danger of mass childhood fatalities if desperate families are forced to drink contaminated water.

    Despite the nuance of the situation, Samantha Power barreled in with accusations against Moscow saying, “What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counter-terrorism, it is barbarism.”

‘Almost ALL EU Nations Will Follow UK OUT of EU’ French MP Says Brexit Was Just The FIRST

BRExit_or_BRemain_Cartoon

  • ‘Almost ALL EU Nations Will Follow UK OUT of EU’ French MP Says Brexit Was Just The FIRST
    by JOEY MILLAR, http://www.express.co.uk/  
    BREXIT will inspire a wave of referendums which will finish off the European Union (EU) for good, a French MP has claimed.

    Philip Cordery said opposition to Brussels was soaring “everywhere” – and, given the right leadership, “almost every country” in the 28-country bloc could vote to leave. Mr Cordery said: “I think what happened in the UK at the referendum could have happened almost every other country in the European Union – except in the other countries no Prime Minister would have been as irresponsible as to ask for a referendum. “If we look today, Euroscepticism is growing everywhere, populist movements are growing everywhere in Europe.”

    The half-English politician said more and more people were objecting to the EU’s economic restrictions and rapidly losing patience with dictatorial and stubborn Eurocrats. He said he was disappointed at Britain’s decision this summer to leave the EU, but acknowledged the decision was based on well-founded and understandable concerns.

  • EU Army Will Be A Threat To NATO, Says UK Defence Secretary
    by JOHN INGHAM, http://www.express.co.uk/  
    BRITAIN will continue to fight the creation of a Euro Army amid fears it will “simply duplicate or undermine” Nato, Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said today.

    Speaking at a meeting of EU Defence ministers, he said the growing threat from terrorism and migration is not enough to justify a new continent-wide force. France and Germany and Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker want an EU military command, more defence spending and joint development of assets such as helicopters and drones. But most EU members – including Britain, France and Germany – already belong to the transatlantic alliance Nato.

    And at the meeting in Slovakian capital Bratislava, Sir Michael said: “We agree Europe needs to step up to the challenges of terrorism and of migration. We are going to continue to oppose any idea of an EU army or EU army headquarters, which would simply undermine Nato. “Nato must remain a cornerstone of our defence and the defence of Europe.” Stressing that not just Britain opposed the idea, he said: “There are a number of other countries who believe that cuts across sovereignty of individual nation states.
