Andrew Bacevich ─ America's War for the Greater Middle East: A Military History
Andrew J. Bacevich discusses his new book, America’s War for the Greater Middle East: A Military History. From the end of World War II until 1980, virtually no American soldiers were killed in action while serving in the Greater Middle East. Since 1990, virtually no American soldiers have been killed in action anywhere else. What caused this shift? Andrew J. Bacevich, one of the country’s most respected voices on foreign affairs, offers an incisive critical history of this ongoing military enterprise—now more than thirty years old and with no end in sight. During the 1980s, Bacevich argues, a great transition occurred. As the Cold War wound down, the United States initiated a new conflict—a War for the Greater Middle East—that continues to the present day. The long twilight struggle with the Soviet Union had involved only occasional and sporadic fighting. But as this new war unfolded, hostilities became persistent. From the Balkans and East Africa to the Persian Gulf and Central Asia, U.S. forces embarked upon a seemingly endless series of campaigns across the Islamic world. Few achieved anything remotely like conclusive success. Instead, actions undertaken with expectations of promoting peace and stability produced just the opposite. As a consequence, phrases like “permanent war” and “open-ended war” have become part of everyday discourse. Connecting the dots in a way no other historian has done before, Bacevich weaves a compelling narrative out of episodes as varied as the Beirut bombing of 1983, the Mogadishu firefight of 1993, the invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the rise of ISIS in the present decade. Understanding what America’s costly military exertions have wrought requires seeing these seemingly discrete events as parts of a single war. It also requires identifying the errors of judgment made by political leaders in both parties and by senior military officers who share responsibility for what has become a monumental march to folly. This Bacevich unflinchingly does. Andrew J. Bacevich is a retired professor of history and international relations at Boston University. A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, he served for twenty-three years as a commissioned officer in the United States Army. He received his PhD in American diplomatic history from Princeton. Before joining the faculty of Boston University in 1998, he taught at West Point and at Johns Hopkins University. His three most recent books—Breach of Trust, Washington Rules, and The Limits of Power—all hit the New York Times bestseller list.

WW3 'Eager Lion 2012' - Biggest War Games Since Just Before Iraq War / All is NOT Well !
US Leads War Drill in Jordan -- Israel Not Invited (Illuminati reverse psychology deception) The United States is leading what it described as the "largest military exercises in the Middle East in 10 years" in Jordan on Tuesday. Eager Lion 2012 "is the largest exercise held in the region in the past ten years," Major General Ken Tovo, head of the US Special Operations Forces, told reporters in Amman. "Yesterday we began to apply the skills that we have developed over the last weeks in an irregular warfare scenario ... They will last for approximately the coming two weeks," he added. "The message that I want to send through this exercise is that we have developed the right partners throughout the region and across the world ... insuring that we have the ability to ... meet challenges that are coming to our nations," Tovo said. Over 12,000 soldiers are taking part in the war games, representing 19 countries, including Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Pakistan, Qatar, Britain, France, Italy, Spain and Australia. Jordanian army operations and training chief Major General Awni Adwan said the military exercise "has been in the planning phase for the past three years." "No forces will be deployed north ... the exercise is not connected to any real world event," Adwan said when asked if the war games were related to the ongoing violence in Jordan's northern neighbor Syria. "This has nothing to do with Syria. We respect the sovereignty of Syria. There is no tension between the Syrians and us. Our objectives are clear," Adwan said. Israel -- despite having extensive security agreements with Jordan -- was not invited to participate in the exercises. Several Arab nations participating in the drill are still formally at war with the Jewish state. Washington has granted Amman $2.4 billion in military and economic aid in the past five years, according to official figures Article source : http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/operation-eager-lion-2012-is-underway---do-you-think-this-will-spark-a-war-with-syria/question-2659471/

An Ode-to Hezbollah, Bashar al-Assad and Syria
A tribute video I made to Hezbollah, Bashar al-Assad, Syria and all the brave men and women who are fighting against Zionist aggression and oppression. Syria is under attack by CIA/Al-Qaida Zionist backed mercenaries of various national backgrounds, waging a proxy war against Syria and it's Government. There is no civil war being fought, it is a US supported terrorist invasion and terror campaign aimed at destabilizing Syria and ousting Bashar al-Assad. Israel wishes to remove Syria from the equation, in order to sabotage Hezbollah's military support from Syria. Hezbollah are freedom fighters (not terrorists) fighting for the survival of Palestine and Lebanon and standing up against Israeli aggression. The United States is controlled by Z.O.G (Zionist Occupation Government) and it's nothing more then a powerhouse of Israel to enforce Zionist interests world-wide through wars of terror and conquest. Israel and the US are the real terrorists. For more information on the Zionist New World Order, go to: http://www.jewwatch.com For real and uncensored news coverage world-wide, go to: http://www.presstv.ir An excerpt from the book "Epic: The Story of the Waffen-SS" by Belgian SS General Leon Degrelle 1982. "German racialism has been deliberately distorted. It never was an anti-"other race" racialism. It was a pro-German racialism. It was concerned with making the German race strong and healthy in every way. Hitler was not interested in having millions of degenerates, if it was was in his powers not to have them. Today one finds rampant alcohol and drug addiction everywhere. Hitler cared that the German families be healthy, cared that they raise healthy children for the renewal of a healthy nation. German racialism meant re-discovering the creative values of their own race, re-discovering their culture. It was a search for excellence, a noble idea. National Socialist racialism was not against the other races, and wished that all other races did the same for themselves. That was demonstrated when the Waffen-SS enlarged its ranks to include 60.000 Islamic SS. The Waffen-SS respected their way of life, their customs, and their religious beliefs. Each Islamic SS battalion had an imam, each company had a mullah. It was our common wish that their qualities found their highest expression. This was our racialism. I was present when each of my Islamic comrades received a personal gift from Hitler during the new year: It was a pendant with a small Koran. Hitler was honoring them with this small symbolic gift. He was honoring them with what was the most important aspect of their lives and their history. National Socialist racialism was loyal to the German race and totally respected all other races. At this point, one hears: "What about the anti-Jewish racism?" One can answer; "What about Jewish anti-Gentilism?" It has been the misfortune of the Jewish race that never could they get on with any other race. It is an unusual historical fact and phenomenon. When one studies the history - and I say this without any passion - of the Jewish people, their evolution across centuries, one observes that always, at all times, and at all places, they were hated. They were hated in ancient Egypt, they were hated in ancient Greece, they were hated in Roman times to such degree that 3000 of them were deported to Sardina. It was the first Jewish deportation. They were hated in Spain, in France, in England (they were banned from England for centuries), and in Germany. The conscientious Jewish author Lazare wrote a very interesting book, On Anti-Semitism, where he asked himself: "We Jews should ask ourselves a question: why are we always hated everywhere? It is not because of our persecutors, all of different times and places. It is because there is something within us that is very unlikeable." What is unlikeable is that the Jews have always wanted to live as a privileged class divinely-chosen and beyond scrutiny. This attitude has made them unlikeable everywhere. The Jewish race is therefore a unique case. Hitler had no intention of destroying it. He wanted the Jews to find their own identity in their own environment , but not to the detriment of others. The fight - if we can call it that - of National Socialism against the Jews was purely limited to one objective; that the Jews leave Germany in peace. It was planned to give them a country of their own, outside Germany. Madagascar was contemplated, but the plans were dropped when the United States entered the war. In the meanwhile, Hitler thought of letting the Jews live in their own traditional ghettos. They would have their own organizations, they would run their own affairs and live the way they wanted to live. They had their own police, their own tramways, their own flag, their own factories which, incidentally, were built by the German government. As far as other races were concerned, they were all welcomed in Germany as guests, but not as privileged occupants."

'Syria Chemical Footage' Revealed As Pressure Mounts Within US Ahead Of vote
MALA'yuMADA'yu | Manasseh@1WORLDCommunity End Of the History, Not End Of the WORLD! As the day draws near for the US Congress to review President Obama's request to back a Syria military strike, CNN reveals video shown to Congress to sponsor the strike, while opponents of the aggression rally on the internet and take to the streets. The outcome of the voting next week is far from certain. Obama's administration and legislators advocating military action are flying in the face of a war-weary American public, more than half of whom are against being drawn into yet another Middle Eastern war, a Washington Post-ABC News poll showed. Opponents are vocal and are bombarding their representatives with emails and phone calls demanding that they oppose the possible aggression. For some members of Congress voter pressure is decisive, like Michael Grimm who initially supported the Syrian intervention, and then flip flopped. Another pro-strike lawmaker, Brad Sherman, told the Washington Post: "I don't know a member of Congress whose e-mails and phone calls are in favor of this". The last weeks have also seen a series of anti-war rallies both in the US and in some other countries. Activists in New York were carrying signs which read, "No more wars for corporate profit" and "Cut the Pentagon, not food stamps." The activist group MoveOn.org seeks to bolster the trend by airing a 30-second ad, which calls on Americans that they should petition Congress, unless they want another Afghanistan or Iraq. "Don't lead us down this road again," the commercial says. MoveOn says the ad will air this week on MSNBC, with a heavier rotation around Obama's planned address to the nation Tuesday night, in which he is to explain his position on Syria. Drums of war Lobbyists from the pro-attack camp are also gearing up. The influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee will deploy hundreds of activists next week to promote military action. "We plan a major lobbying effort with about 250 activists in Washington to meet with their senators and representatives," an AIPAC source told Reuters on Saturday. Moves to sway public attention from the ramifications of attacking Syria to the moral duty of doing so are coming through other sources as well. CNN aired footage on Saturday of the alleged Syrian government sarin gas attack. The news network stressed that it could not verify that the graphic images of people, who appear to have been poisoned with a nerve agent, were indeed those caused by the apparent chemical weapon attack on August 21. But the footage in various videos had been shown to select members of Congress on Thursday by the Obama administration, which said the intelligence community had provided them and confirmed their authenticity. Many of the videos were among those uploaded to the Internet in the wake of the incident . . . However, other countries, including Russia and China, are doubtful. Russia's President Putin stated in unambiguous terms that Moscow believes the August 21 killings to be a provocation by the rebel forces, which is aimed at dragging America into the Syrian war. Obama said in March that use of chemical weapons by Assad's troops would be a red line, after which the US would be compelled to act. The deadly August incident came just as a team of UN inspectors were investigating cases of previous alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria. Suspicions that the latest chemical deaths could be a false flag operation were earlier used by a group of former US military and intelligence professionals, including former NSA Senior Executive and whistleblower, Thomas Drake. The intelligence assessment, which the White House released to back its accusations against the Assad government, has been fixed around policy rather than based on facts, they said in a letter to Obama. They add that as early as August 13-14 the Syrian rebels were instructed to prepare "a major, irregular military surge" with a major escalation in the conflict expected. They were told that a war-changing bombing of government forces was coming and received large amounts of weapons, and that they would need to exploit the opportunity, the letter said. "We choose to assume that you have not been fully informed because your advisers decided to afford you the opportunity for what is commonly known as 'plausible denial,'" the authors say, adding that they believe that President George W Bush was placed in a similar position, when he decided to attack Iraq over what later proved to be false information concerning Saddam Hussein's possession of weapons of mass destruction.

Russia's Intervention in Syria: Lessons Learned
In September 2015, Russia intervened militarily in Syria in support of the Syrian government. Over the next 15 months, Russia bolstered the Assad government in its efforts to retake large portions of the country and targeted Assad’s adversaries, often with considerable civilian cost. What has Russia learned from over a year of conflict? And what can we deduce from this conflict about Russian military capabilities and strategy? Ruslan Pukhov of the Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) in Moscow will join us to break down the lessons learned from this conflict.
“Hezbollah has capability to seize Israel”
Hezbollah could seize Israel in a future conflict. This is what Israeli newspapers have headlined, quoting senior Israeli military sources. According to these media reports a senior Israeli military officer has said that Hezbollah has the capability to launch an attack and seize control of the Galilee region (map) for a limited period of time in a future war. This after the 50 day war launched by Israel on the Gaza strip, which is widely believed to have been an Israeli military failure.

For a small fee, Google will smear anyone on earth, guiding internet searches to "fee paid" sites on obscure and secretive servers to spread wild conspiracies, bizarre accusations and defamation. Google runs YouTube, a site of vast power that has done more to mislead and censor than any other website on the internet, with the exception of Google's other sites, in particular, Google News. Now, even the CIA is distancing themselves from Google's global operations, now believed closely aligned with a group known to many as "Al Qaeda." Is anyone really surprised? Full Article here -

The future of war: a history
Author Sir Lawrence Freedman discusses his new publication, The Future of War: A History (Allen Lane, 2017). The talk will be moderated by Professor Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government. In 1912 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a short story about a war fought from underwater submersibles that included the sinking of passenger ships. It was dismissed by the British admirals of the day, not on the basis of technical feasibility, but because sinking civilian ships was not something that any civilised nation would do. Three years later, a German U-boat torpedoed the ocean liner RMS Lusitania, killing 1,198 civilians. The reality of war almost always contradicts expectations, less because of some technical or engineering dimension, but more because of some human, political, or moral threshold that we had never imagined would be crossed. As Lawrence Freedman shows, ideas about the causes and conduct of war have rich and varied histories which shape anxieties about the future. The Future of War takes us from preparations for the world wars, through the nuclear age, up to current civil wars with foreign interventions and into present preoccupations with hybrid and cyber warfare. Filled with fascinating insights from one of Britain’s foremost military and strategic thinkers, it shows us how past misconceptions of the future of war should make us wary of current thinking about future conflicts. This event is free and open to all. To attend, please register here. The event will also be live streamed and recorded on the Blavatnik School of Government YouTube channel. About the author Sir Lawrence Freedman is Emeritus Professor of War Studies at King's College London and Visiting Professor at the Blavatnik School of Government. He was a member of 'the Chilcot Inquiry' into Britain and the 2003 Iraq War, and was the official historian of the Falklands Campaign. He has written extensively on nuclear strategy and the Cold War, and comments regularly on contemporary security issues. His most recent book, Strategy, was a Financial Times and Economist book of the year; A Choice of Enemies: America Confronts the Middle East won the 2009 Lionel Gelber Prize and Duke of Westminster Medal for Military Literature. https://www.bsg.ox.ac.uk/events/future-war-history Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford http://www.bsg.ox.ac.uk/

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND / CONTEXT From its formation in 1775, the United States Army has been the primary land based portion of the United States military. The Army's primary responsibility has been the fighting of land battles and military occupation. The Corps of Engineers has a major role in controlling rivers. It was founded in response to a need for professional soldiery in the American Revolutionary War in order to fight the invading British Army. The Army was quite small in peacetime down to the 1940s. The Air Force became practically independent in World War II, and completely so in 1947. The Army was under the control of the War Department until 1947, and the Defense Department since then. The U.S. Army fought the War of 1812 (1812–15), American Civil War (1861–65), Spanish-American War (1898), World War I (1917–18), World War II (1941–45), Korean War (1950–53) and Vietnam War (1965–71). After the Cold War ended in 1991, the Army has focused on insurgencies in the Middle East, such as the Gulf War, and the recent War in Iraq and the War in Afghanistan. When the American Revolutionary War began in April 1775, the colonial revolutionaries did not have an army. Previously, each colony had relied upon the militia, made up of part-time citizen-soldiers. The initial orders from Congress authorized ten companies of riflemen. The first full regiment of Regular Army infantry, the 3rd Infantry Regiment was not formed until June 1784. After the war the Continental Army was quickly disbanded as part of the American distrust of standing armies, and irregular state militias became the new nation's sole ground army, with the exception of a regiment to guard the Western Frontier and one battery of artillery guarding West Point's arsenal. The War of 1812, an invasion of Canada failed, and U.S. troops were unable to stop the British from burning the new capital of Washington, D.C.. However, the Regular Army, under Generals Winfield Scott and Jacob Brown, proved they were professional and capable of defeating a major invasion by the regular British army in the Niagara campaign of 1814. Between 1815 and 1860, the main role of the Army was control of Indians in the West, and manning coast artillery stations at major ports. The U.S. used regular units and many volunteer units to fight Mexico, 1846–48. At the outset of the American Civil War the regular U.S. army was small and generally assigned to defend the nation's frontiers from attacks by Native Americans. Following the Civil War, the U.S. Army fought a long battle with Native Americans, who resisted U.S. expansion into the center of the continent. A combined conscript and volunteer force, the National Army, was formed by the United States War Department in 1917 to fight in World War I. During World War II, the Army of the United States was formed as a successor to the National Army. The end of World War II set the stage for the East-West confrontation known as the Cold War. With the outbreak of the Korean War, concerns over the defense of Western Europe rose. During the Cold War, American troops and their allies fought Communist forces in Korea and Vietnam (see Domino Theory). The 1980s was mostly a decade of reorganization. The Army converted to an all-volunteer force with greater emphasis on training and technology. By 1989, the Cold War was coming to a close. The Army leadership reacted by starting to plan for a reduction in strength. After Desert Storm, the Army did not see major combat operations for the remainder of the 1990s. After the September 11 attacks, and as part of the Global War on Terror, U.S. and NATO combined arms (i.e. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Special Operations) forces invaded Afghanistan in 2001, replacing theTaliban government. The Army took part in the combined U.S. and allied 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Russia’s Ground Forces: Organization, Armament, Prospects
The Russian military has nearly completed a substantial overhaul of its ground forces. While Russia’s ground forces have traditionally been tasked with defending the territory of the Russian Federation, new equipment and training are meant to make them more capable for missions local and global, offensive and defensive. At the core of the new concept is self-sufficiency. Once armed with reliable artillery and missile systems, Russian ground forces will be called on to carry out high precision strikes on their own, without relying on other branches and services. Modern UAVs, new approaches to electronic warfare, and a revised concept of air defense are also part of the package. Alexey Ramm, a long-time observer of the Russian armed forces, will discuss the reforms and their implications. This event is made possible by the generous support of Carnegie Corporation of New York. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to our channel: http://cs.is/2dCfTve CSIS is the world's #1 defense and national security think tank.

Very Brave!! Israel Threaten Russia
Again, Israel Threatens Russian S-300 Response if Its Combat Jet Is Shot, TEL AVIV - Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman again threatened to respond to Russia's S-300 air defense missile system if Syria is used to shoot down Tel Aviv's fighter jets. He insisted that Tel Aviv did not want to go to war with Moscow. "We are not seeking confrontation with Russia, and vice versa, in recent years, open, clear and transparent dialogue has been made with Russia, both when our opinion is compatible and incompatible," Lieberman said in an interview with Kommersant newspaper quoted on Thursday 3/5/2018) night. "As far as I know, (Assad Syria) Assad is a war criminal, responsible for the deaths of more than half a million citizens, but we will not interfere in Syria's internal affairs What we will not tolerate is Iran's efforts to change Syria to be a leading post against Israel Every effort by Iran to build itself in Syria will be thwarted, "Lieberman said. "If does not intervene - it would be wise for him not to, because we do not plan to interfere in Syria's internal affairs, if his troops, the air defense system, fired shots at us-we would fire them," he continued. "There is a fine line between the () and the Russian military forces in Syria We always consider the interests of Russia, and hope that they will consider Israel's security interests," he added. "If the S-300 system is not directed to us-that's one thing, if this system fires on our plane, we will definitely respond," Lieberman said. A similar threat was made this Israeli Defense Minister on 24 April. Thanks for watching. For more videos, subscribe to the Thanks for subscribing, likes and comments. Thank you my friend.

US Navy SUPER DEADLY griffen anti boat missile system
The US Navy griffen anti boat missile will provide the US Navy good protection against attacks from small boats. The AGM-176 Griffin is a lightweight, precision kinetic effects munition[2] developed by Raytheon. It has been designed to be launched from the ground or air as a rocket-powered missile or dropped from the air as a guided bomb. It is intended as a precision low-collateral damage weapon with a relatively small warhead for the kinds of "irregular warfare operations" encountered on battlefields such as Afghanistan where it has been successfully proven in combat. Type Air-to-ground missile Place of origin United States of America Service history In service 2008–present Used by United States Air Force United States Navy United States Marine Corps Central Intelligence Agency Wars War in Afghanistan Iraq War Production history Manufacturer Raytheon Produced 2008–present Specifications Weight 45 pounds (20 kg) (w/ launch tube) Length 42 inches (110 cm) Diameter 5.5 inches (140 mm) Warhead Blast-fragmentation Warhead weight 13 lb (5.9 kg) Propellant Solid fuel rocket Operational range 3.5 mi (5.6 km) surface launch[1] 12.5 miles (20.1 km) at altitude[1] Guidance system Laser, GPS or INS Launch platform MQ-1, MQ-9 and other UAVs Naval use[edit] Raytheon developed an extended range version of the Griffin for integration onto Littoral Combat Ships. The Sea Griffin has a new motor and guidance system to increase its firing range from an LCS. Raytheon faced competition in equipping the LCS with a missile, as the Navy looked for other vendors. Competition came from MBDA with the Sea Spear version of its Brimstone missile. Both missiles intended to give the LCS protection from small boat swarm attacks.[11] The Navy instead selected the AGM-114L Hellfire to equip the LCS. The decision was made from the ship's use of the Saab’s Sea Giraffe radar. While each Griffin requires a semi-active laser to paint a target, so a volley of them can only engage one target at a time, the Longbow Hellfire missiles can use the ship's and their own millimeter wave radar to separately track and engage multiple targets at the same time.[12] In September 2013, Raytheon and the U.S. Navy demonstrated the Griffin missile's ability to engage fast-moving small boats from various platforms throughout a series of at-sea tests. The MK-60 Patrol Coastal Griffin Missile System was integrated on a Cyclone-class patrol ship, where the missile was successfully employed against remote-controlled boats simulating a threat to the ship.[13] The MK-60 Patrol Coastal Griffin Missile System achieved initial operational capability (IOC) with the U.S. Navy in March 2014, which is intended to provide protection for vessels in littoral areas against swarm boat attacks and other threats. The MK-60 includes the Griffin missile, a laser targeting system, a Navy-designed launcher, and a battle management system.[14] Each Mk-60 can launch four missiles, and a patrol ship has two MK-60 launchers on board. The U.S. Navy began installing Griffin missiles on Patrol Craft in 2013 and as of May 2014, four were outfitted with Griffin missile systems, with plans to equip ten PCs by 2016. When mounted on a ship, the missile is designated the BGM-176B. Arming PCs with Griffin missiles adds a layer of defense to the ships beyond the range of their 25 mm gun mounts, out to 4.5 km (2.8 mi), and also provides 360 degree coverage; the missiles have thrust-vectoring engines to quickly be directed to the target even when launched vertically. Installation onto a PC involves adding the launcher and weapons control system, the BRITE Star II sensor/laser designator, and the Griffin B Block II missile in a process taking one month.[15][16] Raytheon is continuing to self-fund the development of the Sea Griffin to extend the missile's range. The Sea Griffin will use a dual-mode seeker with an imaging infrared seeker and semi-active laser guidance, as well as using a data-link to track multiple threats simultaneously and give it a fire-and-forget capability. The new seeker and an extended range rocket motor, which will add 9.1 kg of weight, will increase the range of the Sea Griffin to 15 km.[15][16] Tests of the Sea Griffin have demonstrated the ability of the new imaging infrared (IIR) seeker to stream video back to operators through the data-link to provide verification before the missile strikes the target.[17] It also has an In-Flight Target Update (IFTU) capability to be redirected to a new target in mid-flight, a vital feature against swarming small boat threats moving between friendly forces and neutral shipping. The Sea Griffin has been renamed the Griffin C.[18] Development[edit] Raytheon developed Griffin as a low-cost modular system, using components from earlier projects, among others the FGM-148 Javelin and the AIM-9X Sidewinder. It was originally designed to be launched from the MC-130W 'Dragon Spear' gunship for the US Special Operations Command.

The latest security challenges facing NATO
A briefing by General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB OBE, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, set against the backdrop of the latest security challenges facing NATO and how this will impact upon UK priorities and commitments. The UK has the second largest defence budget within the Alliance but one that could feasibly be cut below NATO's mandated level of 2% of GDP. Fiscal considerations in the coming months must take into account UK commitments to the Alliance's collective defence and ensuring NATO's credibility in the face of evolving security challenges and the geopolitical landscape. With the ongoing tensions with Russia, the UK has pledged to contribute to NATO Assurance Measures in Eastern Europe, including contributing to the Baltic Air Policing Mission later this year and leading the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force in 2017. These and other challenges, such as the need for streamlining national political decision-making processes, the importance of conventional as well as nuclear deterrence and dealing effectively with hybrid warfare and non-traditional threats to our security was discussed during this briefing. General Sir Adrian Bradshaw KCB OBE is Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe. He joined the 14th/20th King’s Hussars in 1980. As a junior officer he served in Germany, Northern Ireland, Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and the Falkland Islands, first as a tank troop leader and Regimental Intelligence Officer, and then detached from his Regiment flying helicopters followed by a further troop-level command tour. He commanded twice at squadron-level, on armour with his Regiment and then detached with another unit, serving in Germany, the Americas and the Balkans. From 1994-1996, he commanded the King’s Royal Hussars (KRH), first providing the enemy force at the UK Armoured Training Area in Alberta, Canada, and then as Battlegroup Commander on operations in Bosnia. After command, he went on to the UK Higher Command and Staff Course, and served in Military Operations in the MOD. On promotion to Brigadier, he went to 3rd (US) Army in Kuwait, planning for Land operations in Iraq. He then became Deputy Commander of US Task Force West in the Iraq region before Commanding the UK 7th Armoured Brigade in Iraq. After attending the Royal College of Defence Studies in London, he became a Component Director in the MoD, being promoted in post to Major General in 2007. In 2009, he took command of 1st (UK) Armoured Division based in Germany, training brigades for operations in Afghanistan. He has since attended the US Army Strategic Leadership Programme (Advanced) and the US Joint Pinnacle Course. He became Deputy Commander of ISAF in Afghanistan in late 2011 and Commander UK Land Forces in 2013. He assumed his current appointment as DSACEUR in March 2014. He has degrees in Agriculture (BSc Hons, Reading University 1979), Defence Studies (MA, King’s College London, 1991) and International Relations (MA, King’s College London, 2005). He has also been a Visiting Defence Fellow at Balliol College, Oxford University (2011).

Israel's armed forces - the most powerful and best equipped in the Middle East - are changing. Older tanks and aircraft will be retired. Some 4,000 - maybe even more - professional career officers will be dismissed. A range of other changes over the next five years are intended to make the Israeli military leaner but more effective. Elements of the plans were set out by the Israel Defense Forces' Chief of Staff, Benny Gantz, earlier this week. Once implemented, they promise what some analysts have described as "a revolution" in Israel's military affairs. In part, of course, this is all about money. The defence budget in Israel is under growing pressure - social protest has erupted on Israel's streets too. Significant cuts have to be made. This is one reason why units equipped with older tanks like derivatives of the US M60 will be disbanded, as well as some Air Force units with older aircraft that are much more expensive to maintain. Streamlining the career military may also save funds in the long run. Shift of emphasis But what is really going on here owes less to budgetary pressures and more to the dramatic changes that are under way in the strategic geography of the region around Israel. The Arab world is living through an upheaval that shows no sign of ending. The big military players like Egypt, Syria and Iraq are either facing political uncertainty, full-scale civil war, or have been exhausted by invasion and more than a decade of bitter internal violence. The Israeli military's five-year plan has been postponed over recent years - partly due to the budgetary uncertainty and partly due to the dramatic changes sweeping across the region. As retired Brig Gen Michael Herzog, a former head of IDF Strategic Planning, told me: "The prospect of a conventional war breaking out between the IDF and a traditionally organised Arab army is now much less than in the past. "However, the risk from non-state actors, of asymmetric warfare, and greater unrest along Israel's orders (with the exception perhaps of Jordan) is increasing and it is these threats that the Israeli military has to plan for." So what will change ? Gen Herzog says there will probably be fewer tanks, but this goes much further than simply changing the IDF's order of battle. There will be a much greater emphasis upon intelligence and cyber-warfare. Given the instability in Syria, there will be a new territorial division covering the Golan front. There will be significant investment in the capacity to strike deep into enemy territory and to improve the co-ordination between air and ground forces. There will be an even greater emphasis upon speed and the deployment of weapons that can strike targets rapidly and with great accuracy. The use of the Tamuz system, a highly accurate guided missile, during recent months against sporadic fire coming from Syrian positions is a pointer to the types of weaponry that will be more important in the future. Tamuz is actually a relatively old system, recently declassified, but its successors will play an important part in Israel's new order of battle. The Israeli military concept has always been to shorten the duration of any conflict, but this has become more important than ever before because of the growing missile arsenals of groups like the Lebanese Shia movement Hezbollah, which means the Israeli home-front is under threat like never before," Gen Herzog told me. Israel already deploys a variety of defensive measures like the Arrow and Iron Dome anti-missile systems, but improving its offensive capability is seen as the key to managing the tempo and duration of any future conflict. Transition 'risks' By and large, Gen Herzog welcomes the new military plan. However, he says that "there are of course risks during any period of transition". Budget constraints mean that in the short-term training is being cut back. This, he notes, "is the easiest way to save money in the short term". He points to the IDF's problems in Lebanon in 2006 as an example of an army that had spent too little time training for large-scale manoeuvre warfare. "Training is definitely down this year, but is set to rise in future years," he says, adding: "This is a risk albeit a calculated one." Nonetheless, the assessment among the Israeli High Command is that this risk is bearable, given the disarray afflicting its Arab neighbours. In Egypt, the peace treaty with Israel may not be popular but the Egyptian army is wedded to it, not least as the ticket that opens the way to large-scale US military aid. Iraq is no longer a serious military player. Syria is in crisis and the regime's future remains in doubt.

1984 By George Orwell (2/3) Audiobook
Part1- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMzBE... Part3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVoDX... Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while the year 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions.

Urgent! World Close to WW3
For the first time in a quarter-century, the prospect of war—real war, war between the major powers—will be on the agenda of Western leaders when they meet at the NATO Summit in Warsaw, Poland, on July 8 and 9. Dominating the agenda in Warsaw (aside, of course, from the “Brexit” vote in the UK) will be discussion of plans to reinforce NATO’s “eastern flank”—the arc of former Soviet partners stretching from the Baltic states to the Black Sea that are now allied with the West but fear military assault by Moscow. Until recently, the prospect of such an attack was given little credence in strategic circles, but now many in NATO believe a major war is possible and that robust defensive measures are required. In what is likely to be its most significant move, the Warsaw summit is expected to give formal approval to a plan to deploy four multinational battalions along the eastern flank—one each in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Although not deemed sufficient to stop a determined Russian assault, the four battalions would act as a “tripwire,” thrusting soldiers from numerous NATO countries into the line of fire and so ensuring a full-scale, alliance-wide response. This, it is claimed, will deter Russia from undertaking such a move in the first place or ensure its defeat should it be foolhardy enough to start a war. The United States, of course, is deeply involved in these initiatives. Not only will it supply many of the troops for the four multinational battalions, but it is also taking many steps of its own to bolster NATO’s eastern flank. Spending on the Pentagon’s “European Reassurance Initiative” will quadruple, climbing from $789 million in 2016 to $3.4 billion in 2017. Much of this additional funding will go to the deployment, on a rotating basis, of an additional armored-brigade combat team in northern Europe. As a further indication of US and NATO determination to prepare for a possible war with Russia, the alliance recently conducted the largest war games in Eastern Europe since the end of the Cold War. Known as Anakonda 2016, the exercise involved some 31,000 troops (about half of them Americans) and thousands of combat vehicles from 24 nations in simulated battle maneuvers across the breadth of Poland. A parallel naval exercise, BALTOPS 16, simulated “high-end maritime warfighting” in the Baltic Sea, including in waters near Kaliningrad, a heavily defended Russian enclave wedged between Poland and Lithuania. All of this—the aggressive exercises, the NATO buildup, the added US troop deployments—reflects a new and dangerous strategic outlook in Washington. Whereas previously the strategic focus had been on terrorism and counterinsurgency, it has now shifted to conventional warfare among the major powers. “Today’s security environment is dramatically different than the one we’ve been engaged in for the last 25 years,” observed Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter on February 2, when unveiling the Pentagon’s $583 billion budget for fiscal year 2017. Until recently, he explained, American forces had largely been primed to defeat insurgent and irregular forces, such as the Taliban in Afghanistan. Now, however, the Pentagon was being readied for “a return to great-power competition,” including the possibility of all-out combat with “high-end enemies” like Russia and China. By preparing for war, Washington and NATO are setting in motion forces that could achieve precisely that outcome. The budgetary and force-deployment implications of this are enormous in their own right, but so is this embrace of “great-power competition” as a guiding star for US strategy. During the Cold War, it was widely assumed that the principal task of the US military was to prepare for all-out combat with the Soviet Union, and that such preparation must envision the likelihood of nuclear escalation. Since then, American forces have seen much horrible fighting in the Middle East and Afghanistan, but none of that has involved combat with another major power, and none entailed the risk of nuclear escalation—for which we should all be thankful. Now, however, Secretary Carter and his aides are seriously thinking about—and planning for—conflicts that would involve another major power and could escalate to the nuclear realm. https://www.thenation.com/article/the-united-states-and-nato-are-preparing-for-a-major-war-with-russia/

Statement by PM Netanyahu following President Trump's Announcement
"Israel fully supports President Trump’s bold decision today to reject the disastrous nuclear deal with the terrorist regime in Tehran. Israel has opposed the nuclear deal from the start because we said that rather than blocking Iran’s path to a bomb, the deal actually paved Iran’s path to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs, and this within a few years’ time. The removal of sanctions under the deal has already produced disastrous results. The deal didn’t push war further away, it actually brought it closer. The deal didn’t reduce Iran’s aggression, it dramatically increased it, and we see this across the entire Middle East. Since the deal, we’ve seen Iran’s aggression grow every day- in Iraq, in Lebanon, in Yemen, in Gaza, and most of all, in Syria, where Iran is trying to establish military bases from which to attack Israel. Despite the deal, the terrorist regime in Tehran is developing a ballistic missiles capability, ballistic missiles to carry nuclear warheads far and wide, to many parts of the world. And as we exposed last week, since the deal, Iran intensified its efforts to hide its secret nuclear weapons program. So if you leave all of this unchanged, all this combined is a recipe for disaster, a disaster for our region, a disaster for the peace of the world. This is why Israel thinks that President Trump did an historic move and this is why Israel thanks President Trump for his courageous leadership, his commitment to confront the terrorist regime in Tehran and his commitment to ensure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, not today, not in a decade, not ever."

Perspectives on the 2018 U.S. National Security Strategy
Under the Goldwater-Nicholas Defense Department Reorganization Act of 1986, the President must submit an annual report on the national security strategy of the United States to Congress. In roughly 9 months, a new national security strategy will be produced. Much of the work will be done between now and mid-Fall, so now is the time for experts to weigh in on the challenges and opportunities around creating an effective strategy. Our panel of experts will provide the Defense, Development, Homeland Security, and State Department perspectives on the upcoming 2018 U.S. National Security Strategy.
I AM BRYAN TEW, FORMER USA DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (ITT INDUSTRIES) AND USA FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY (FEMA-PB) CONTRACTOR FOR THE EVIL AMERICAN GOVERNMENT NEURO-WARFARE BY CIA IS UNDERWAY IN BOLIVIA, VENEZUELA, CUBA, AND ECUADOR RIGHT NOW. IT HAS ALREADY STARTED AGAINST THE NICARAGUANS (AND OTHER RUSSIAN ALLIES) AND SPECIFICALLY AGAINST THE SANDINISTA GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW IN 2017 AS REVOLUTIONARIES GATHER IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTHERN NICARAGUA. I JUST CAME FROM NICARAGUA LAST YEAR. Nicaragua is already under neuro-warfare asymmetric irregular attack. A war it will lose, as the CIA uses electromagnetic low frequency waves targeting the population of Nicaragua against the Nicaraguan Government creating civil war if necessary to turn Nicaragua into an American puppet state. It's happening right now. CIA NEURO-WARFARE IS ALREADY STARTED AND UNDERWAY AGAINST THE RUSSIANS IN UKRAINE. CIA USED NEURO-WARFARE AGAINST THE UKRAINIAN CITIZENS TO TURN THEM AGAINST AND ISOLATE AND OVERTHROW THE PRO-RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE OF UKRAINE. THOUSANDS OF UKRAINIANS HAVE BEEN KILLED AND OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND UKRANIANS HAVE BEEN DRIVEN FROM THEIR HOMES. http://www.foxnews.com/…/30-years-after-iran-contra-scandal… Remember 'Arab Spring' where Seven Arab Governments were overthrown by revolutionaries in the streets? That was CIA Neuro-Warfare that backfired on the CIA. Instead of becoming CIA puppet states those Arab Countries became more radical and fundamentalist. Those Arab countries are still in civil war now and hundreds of thousands have been killed. All because of the American CIA. Do you think America cares about you? Go back in history and see how many times the American Government has targeted your people and the other people of Latin America and see how much bloodshed they have already caused. If you will not stand up for yourselves then at least fight back now for your children and grandchildren while there is still time to expose this horror. YOU ARE NEXT ECUADOR! IN LESS THAN TEN YEARS CIVIL WAR WILL BEGIN TO TEAR APART YOUR COUNTRY AND YOU DO NOT POSSESS THE TECHNOLOGY TO STOP THE EVIL CIA. THE CIA WILL USE WEATHER WARFARE AGAINST YOU CREATING FLOODS, DROUGHT, ETC., WITH IONOSPHERIC HEATERS. YOU WILL BOW DOWN AND BECOME AN AMERICAN PUPPET STATE OR YOUR COUNTRY WILL DIE, JUST LIKE SYRIA AND LIBYA. The nanotechnology has already infected a great percentage of your population in Ecuador. The Nanotechnology is already in many of your bodies adhering to the neurotransmitters of your brains. It is too late to stop it. GO TO THE HOSPITAL TO SEE A TOXICOLOGIST AND ASK THE DOCTOR TO PERFORM A NANOPATCH TEST ON YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES. THAT DOCTOR WILL BE ABLE TO THEN SHOW YOU THE NANOTECHNOLOGY IN YOUR BODY. Tens of thousands of your citizens will die because your government failed to take action to protect your people and heed the warnings of activists who have risked our lives to help you. YET YOUR CORRUPT ECUADOREAN AUTHORITIES MANIPULATE AND ATTACK ME AND OTHER ACTIVISTS WITH ORGANIZED STALKERS, INFORMANTS & PROVOCATEURS TO TRY AND STOP US FROM EXPOSING THE CIA TO HELP EVEN YOUR OWN PEOPLE! WE HAVE RISKED OUR LIVES TO WARN YOU AND OTHER COUNTRIES AND SEVERAL OF OUR ACTIVISTS HAVE BEEN ASSASSINATED BY THE CIA. WE ARE TRYING TO HELP YOU BUT THE CORRUPT AMERICAN GOVERNMENT HAS MANIPULATED YOUR CORRUPT ECUADOREAN GOVERNMENT TO DO NOTHING UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE. HOW MUCH MONEY WERE THE ECUADOREAN AUTHORITIES PAID TO BETRAY THEIR OWN PEOPLE?

GSF 2017: Risks and Consequences
9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. Risks and Consequences of a Trade War Since the 2008-09 global financial crisis, G20 economies have repeatedly pledged to maintain market openness, while in fact applying nearly 8000 new trade-restrictive measures. The Trump administration argues that trade agreements treat U.S. firms and workers unfairly, and has embarked on a 1980s-style unilateralist trade policy, including launching Section 232 “national security” investigations of steel and aluminum imports and a Section 301 investigation of China’s Intellectual Property practices. GATT 1994 disciplines would entitle trading partners to suspend concessions in response to independent actions by the U.S. Will this be enough to spark a trade war, and escalation of protectionist measures? What are the consequences for globally-engaged U.S. firms, as well as for allies and partners which have their own complex economic relationships with China and other major economies? Featuring: Ms. Wendy Cutler Vice-President and Managing Director, Asia Society Policy Institute Mr. Matthew P. Goodman Senior Adviser and Simon Chair in Political Economy, CSIS Mr. Christopher K. Johnson Senior Adviser and Freeman Chair in China Studies, CSIS Mr. Colin Robertson Vice President and Fellow, the Canadian Global Affairs Institute Moderated by: Mr. Scott Miller Senior Adviser and Scholl Chair in International Business, CSIS 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Nuclear Consensus Busters: Can Bipartisan Support for Nuclear Modernization Survive Putin, Kim Jong Un, and the Next NPR? With nuclear rhetoric running high and the Trump Administration’s Nuclear Posture Review nearing completion this fall, hands are already wringing as to the future of the fragile political consensus that has supported the comprehensive modernization of the U.S. nuclear complex. Several issues risk tearing that consensus down the middle, including: the reported consideration of “mini-nukes” which would vacate the “three no’s policy” of the last administration (no new warheads, no new missions, and no new military capabilities for existing weapons); legislation to limit presidential powers regarding nuclear command and control; discussions of additional deployments of tactical nuclear capabilities to Europe or South Korea; possible U.S. withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty; and prohibitions on the extension of New START absent full INF compliance. The prospects of continued escalation with North Korea and the concerns that Russia may not reach New START central limits on strategic nuclear delivery systems by early next year are only raising the stakes and stoking the fires.
