"Modern War in Theory and Practice" presented by Dr. John A. Nagl
Dr. John A. Nagl lectures at the 31st Annual Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Lecture Series. Dr. Nagl served as an Armor Officer in the US Army for 20 years and is one of the most influential US military officers of his generation. He was heavily involved in the adoption of a counterinsurgency strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan in the mid-2000s. He also appeared on The Daily Show. Dr. Nagl graduated with distinction from West Point with the class of 1988 and received his masters degree from Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. He served as a tank platoon commander during the First Gulf War. Recognizing the changing nature of warfare, he returned to Oxford to pursue a PhD. His dissertation, entitled Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife: Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam, became one of the fundamental academic texts used to argue for a change in US policy in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the mid-2000s, he was on the team that helped write the Army and Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual that outlines US counterinsurgency strategy. Knife Fights, Dr. Nagl's recently released memoir, details his experiences in the modern American military.

“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.

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.

The Problem with Strategy, a Conversation with Sir Lawrence Freedman
In this video, Sir Lawrence Freedman, Professor of War Studies and recent Vice-Principal of King’s College London, joins UNU Rector David M. Malone to discuss the problem and relevance of strategy, based on his book “Strategy: A History”. The basic theme of the book is that people who have ambitious and elaborate strategies, aiming at some distant future goal involving lots of complex steps and many players, tend to be a disappointment. Professor Freedman argues that strategy should really start with the problem you want to solve and move forward from there. From businesses and management consultancies, he argues, we have witnessed the commercialization of strategies - that is strategies as a product with formulas that can be applied. These also tend to disappoint. Rather, Friedman explains that a lot of what we call strategy is really common sense judgment and intuitive. But elaborate planning processes tend to take you away from judgment. Professor Freedman stresses the need to opt for an alternative approach which involves a good diagnosis of the problems, and the development of adaptive system that can identify early on when things are not working. This brings flexibility to the strategy, allowing it to be altered in relation to the continuous development of the situation. When put into practical terms, the current conflict in Ukraine illustrates the necessity of deviating from best practice strategies. Professor Freedman points out the irrationality of the strategy of President Putin, as it has a negative impact on the Russian economy. In order to combat this, the Western countries should support the Ukrainian government, despite it not being a NATO-ally. Hence, a strategy should not be a static prescription, but rather be adjusted to fit the immediate reactions that arise along the way.

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/

Hezbollah offers a glimpse of possible war ahead
(20 Apr 2017) With their Kalashnikovs and Iranian-made anti-aircraft missiles pointing outward, the uniformed Hezbollah militants peered at the group of journalists from an orange grove in a village on the border with Israel, unflinching as they were photographed with their bare faces. A Hezbollah official then ordered that no more photos be taken, after they had almost all filmed the unusual peacetime scene, also signaling to the fighters that they should move away from plain view. The odd encounter Thursday was part of a Hezbollah-organised media tour of south Lebanon, meant to provide insight into defensive measures established in the past year by Israeli forces along the southern frontier in preparation for any future conflict. The choreographed incident, however, was clearly meant to send a strong message across the border to Israel: We are here, and we are ready for war. The border tour organised by Hezbollah's media office - the first since an inconclusive month long war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006 - comes amid heightened tensions along the border between the old adversaries, with each side promising to inflict massive casualties on the other side in any upcoming war. At the border Thursday, Hezbollah officials were keen to point out it is Israel who is preparing for war, showing journalists a series of fortifications taken by Israeli troops across the border in the past year to protect against anticipated Hezbollah infiltration including huge concrete blocks, deep trenches carved in the valley where trees used to be, meant to prevent against infiltration, barbed and electric fence and other reinforcements. The Lebanese-Israeli frontier has been mostly quiet since the 2006 war, which broke out after the Iranian-backed militant group's guerrillas crossed into Israel and captured two Israeli soldiers. The ensuing month-long conflict killed about 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, and 160 Israelis. The war ended with a UN resolution, 1701, which created a buffer zone that is supposed to be free of Hezbollah militants in the border area.

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.

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/

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).

Counterinsurgency in Context with David Kilcullen | 26.10.10
David Kilcullen is one of the world's most influential experts on counterinsurgency and modern warfare. A senior adviser to General David Petraeus in Iraq, and later in Afghanistan, his vision of war powerfully influenced America's decision to rethink its military strategy in Iraq and implement the Surge. Kilcullen's latest publication, Counterinsurgency, brings together his most salient writings on this key topic. At the heart of the book is his legendary Twenty-Eight Articles, in which he shows company leaders how to practise counterinsurgency in the real world, at night, with the GPS down, the media criticizing you, the locals complaining in a language you don't understand, and an unseen enemy killing your people by ones and twos. The other pieces in this book include Kilcullen's pioneering study of counterinsurgency in Indonesia, his ten-point plan for the Surge in Iraq, and his frank look at the problems in Afghanistan. He concludes with a new strategic approach to the War on Terror, arguing that counterinsurgency rather than traditional counterterrorism may offer the best approach to defeating global jihad. Counterinsurgency is a picture of modern warfare by someone who has had his boots on the ground in some of today's worst trouble spots, including Iraq and Afghanistan and who has been studying the topic since 1995. As such, it is a critical contribution to this debate.

"Small Wars" by Dr. Michael D. Gambone
"Small Wars: Low-Intensity Threats and the American Response Since Vietnam" The United States Army has been under constant adaptation since its conception. Warfare waged by early 20th century armies on a grand, industrialized scale is now superseded by diverse conflicts of differing size and scope. The U.S. Army, in dealing with its role in each of the "small wars," has changed to meet the unique challenges presented by conflicts in lands governed by tribal traditions and ethnicity. Dr. Michael D. Gambone explores these changes in his book, Small Wars: Low Intensity Threats and the American Response Since Vietnam (University Of Tennessee Press). Dr. Gambone discusses not only the goals of America's involvement in these "small wars" since the Vietnam War era, but also the conduct and consequences of each military engagement. Dr. Gambone will present a lecture based on his book, and provide analysis of the dramatic shift in all aspects of planning and logistics in American war-making from Vietnam to interventions in Central America, through the Cold War, to the Global War on Terror. Gambone will dissect each mission as an evolution toward our current hybrid of traditional and innovative military techniques. Length: 51 Minutes Lecture Date: December 18, 2013

U.S.A. Balks on Iran Nuclear Deal, Israel Warns on Iranian Attacks
Subscribe to stay up to date with the latest videos ► https://www.sbry.co/YTNeW NewsWire Afternoon Recap – U.S.A. Balks on Iran Nuclear Deal, Israel Warns on Iranian Attacks Equity markets finished the day mixed, with the S&P 500 -0.03%, the Dow +0.01%, the Nasdaq +0.02%, and the Russell 2000 +0.50%. President Trump decided to walk away from the Iranian nuclear accord, and the markets shrugged. The result was expected and investors' attitude, for today, was business as usual. The leading sectors were energy, financials, and industrials. The price of crude rallied post the announcement, and the underlying stocks were bid up. Investors believe that the geopolitical setup will keep crude prices at current levels and possibly push them higher. Financials rallied on news that activist investor, ValueAct Capital, had taken a stake in Citibank (C) calling shares "undervalued". Industrials rallied on better earnings from construction equipment giant Jacobs Engineering (JEC) and as aerospace and defense buyers stepped up on Middle East tensions. The laggards were utilities, REITs, telecom, and health care. Utilities fell on poor AES earnings. Health care was down on news of cutbacks on subsidies that could result if President Trump's request to cancel $15 billion in unspent government funds gets approval from Congress. Small-cap stocks jumped as U.S. economic data continues to outshine other regions, pushing the dollar higher. Within the S&P, four out of the eleven sectors were higher. Energy +0.78% led to the upside on the Iranian Nuclear Accord news. Industrials +0.72% gained for the reasons mentioned above. Utilities -2.51% led to the downside on the AES numbers. Oil -1.47% dropped as investors hedged bets/booked profits ahead of Mr. Trump's Iran announcement. Gold +0.05% was mixed as dollar strength was offset by geopolitical tensions. Bitcoin -2.32% continued to sell-off on follow through from negative commentary by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates over the weekend.

Out of the Mountains
Out of the Mountains Over the past 12 years, the NATO campaign in Afghanistan has been primarily defined by the guerrilla nature of the war and the challenges it has posed to more conventional military forces. But irregular warfare is not limited to Afghanistan or even to South Asia. In his latest book, Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban Guerrilla, renowned counterinsurgency strategist Dr. David Kilcullen analyzes conflicts in cities like Benghazi, Libya; Kingston, Jamaica; and Mumbai, India to explain the evolving face of warfare. Scrutinizing major environmental trends — population growth, coastal urbanization, and increasing digital connectivity — he projects a future of feral cities, urban systems under stress, and increasing overlaps between crime and war, internal and external threats, and the real and virtual worlds. Researching transnational drug networks, local street gangs, and the uprisings of the Arab Spring, he emphasizes that dealing with these conflicts will require greater local insight and expertise outside the military realm — from the fields of urban planning, systems engineering, alternative energy technology, conflict resolution, and mediation. The New America Foundation is pleased to welcome Dr. Kilcullen for a discussion on Out of the Mountains and how countries can diffuse these social conflicts when they arise.

9/11 - The Truth Will Set Humanity Free - The Impossible Cell Phone Calls -  Et Al
Jan Lamprecht chats to Frederick C. Blackburn (also known as BlackBird9) who studied engineering and then became an electrical engineer and had a career in IT. He had a Top Secret clearance in the USA. He gave lectures to: Military and Naval Intelligence personnel as well as NSA, CIA and FBI personnel about cell phone and other technology. We discuss his specialist knowledge with regard to cell phones and why the cell phone technology of 911 did not allow cell phone calls to be received from people in planes. On 911 there were between 15-40 alleged cell phone calls from people on aircraft before the planes crashed into the Twin Towers or elsewhere. Frederick explains why those phone calls were impossible. 911 changed his life because he realised immediately that the collapsing towers as well as the cell phone calls were utterly impossible. He even told Military Intelligence people he was giving lectures to, that the cell phone calls were impossible. This caused consternation and it caused him to lose a 5 year contract he had of giving lectures to military/intelligence people. He was blacklisted and financially destroyed in the ensuing years. He discusses Dr David Ray Griffin’s work on disproving all the phone calls that came from planes, regardless of whether they were cell phones or sky phones in the planes. He also refers to an excellent paper published in 2010 by Rowland Morgan called: “Voices”. We discuss the fake Anthrax attacks, blamed on Muslims which actually came from US Military sources and the Jewish involvement there. He mentions the 200 Israelis that were arrested and deported by the US Govt to Israel, which Fox News Reported and which was hushed up later. He explains how Bill Clinton changed the law to give “back door access” via CALEA (Communications Assistance For Law Enforcement Act of 1994) compliance that allowed the NSA and others to spy on American citizens apparently in order to fight the war on drugs. Bill Clinton’s laws allows companies to lie in the media without suffering any repercussions. He talks about ICTS, an Israeli security company that had no videos of the supposed Muslim hijackers! He talks about Booz Allen and Hamilton, a Military Contracting company. He discusses the Jew Jerome Hauer, who was a key role player in 911. He mentions the Jewish plan to take over the Middle East, which was written up by Oded Yinon in the 1980s as well as General Wesley Clark saying: ‘We’re Going to Take out 7 Countries in 5 Years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran..’

SYRIA HIT BY NEW STRIKES AS TRUMP CANCELS IRAN DEAL AND ISRAEL CALLS HIGH ALERT||World News Radio ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please subscribe us and get the latest World News Radio Alert daily. https://goo.gl/qpkQq5 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Suspected Iranian military positions were hit by new strikes Tuesday shortly after Israel ordered citizens to take shelter and President Donald Trump announced he would withdraw from a nuclear deal with Iran.One attack—blamed on Israel by Russia, Syria and Lebanon—killed several Iranians last month at the T-4 airbase. Another strike on pro-Syrian government positions in southern Homs province was also left unclaimed, but widely blamed on Israel. Israel rarely confirms nor denies conducting such attacks, just as it maintains intentional ambiguity about its nuclear weapons program. This intensified campaign of attacks led up to increased Israeli pressure for the U.S. to leave the historic nuclear agreement signed in 2015 by the U.S. and Iran, as well as China, France, Germany, Russia and the U.K. Out of the deal's six signatories, the U.S. is the only country that does not support it. The Trump administration has said it does not go far enough to stop Iran from supporting foreign militias, developing ballistic missiles and acquiring a nuclear weapon—a view shared primarily by Israel and Saudi Arabia."Israel fully supports 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, it actually paved Iran's path to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs and this within a few years' time," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday. "The deal didn't push war further away, it actually brought us 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 everyday—in Iraq, in Lebanon, in Yemen, in Gaza and, most of all, in Syria, where Iran is trying to establish military bases to attack Israel," he added.The International Atomic Energy Agency has verified Iran's commitment to the deal, whose other signatories expressed regret over the U.S. exit. Some countries, such as Iran and Syria, blasted the decision. Citing an official Syrian Defense Ministry, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported that "the international reactions condemning and denouncing the U.S. decision have shown the United States' isolation and the mistake of its policies that could increase tensions in the world." Iran and its allies, including the Lebanese Hezbollah movement, have battled rebels and jihadis attempting to overthrow Assad since a 2011 uprising sponsored by the West, Turkey and Gulf Arab states. With support from these groups and Russia military backing, Assad has largely regained momentum in the war. The official Syrian Arab News Agency reported that Israeli jets struck Al-Kiswa, located near eight miles south of Damascus, claiming Syrian air defenses downed two incoming missiles. Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman held security meetings with heads of defense at Kirya Military Headquarters in Tel Aviv, according to The Jerusalem Post, just hours after the Israeli military instructed citizens in the occupied Golan Heights to "unlock and ready (bomb) shelters" due to what it said was "irregular" movement by Iranian forces in Syria. Israel accuses Iran of undermining its national security by supporting majority-Shiite Muslim militias fighting on behalf of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and has occasionally launched air strikes against these groups and their allies.

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."

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.

October 1, 2013 AOC Capitol Club Presentation with USMC LtCol Jason "Dizzy" Schuette
USMC LtCol Jason "Dizzy" Schuette spoke to the Capitol Club on October 1, 2013 about, "USMC Implementation of 21st Century EMS Warfare." See below for a presentation summary and speaker bio. More information about the Capitol Club can be found at: http://aoccapitolclub.com/index.php and https://www.facebook.com/AOCCapitolClub Presentation Summary: The past decade of conflict highlights the need for the Marine Corps to maintain a diverse and robust organic electronic warfare (EW) capability. Operating as part of a joint/combined force, the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) must be capable of fighting across the range of military operations. The anticipated threat environment will continue to be complicated by the availability, affordability, and proliferation of commercial technological advancements in military applications available to our adversaries, both conventional and irregular. As detailed in the "MAGTF EW Capabilities Study," dated 11 August 2010, the Marine Corps' EW portfolio of systems and technologies must remain viable against numerous communication-based targets, e.g. radio, command and control nodes, data links, and satellite communications, as well as against increasing number of capable radar-based targets, e.g. early warning, surveillance, target acquisition, target engagement, and missile guidance systems. Our holistic plan considers the full range of threats and provides the most effective investment and employment strategy for the Marine Corps to meet diverse capability and capacity needs from irregular warfare to conventional operations. The Marine Corps is addressing its post-Prowler EW requirements with the MAGTF EW approach. MAGTF EW will integrate multiple aviation and ground based EW nodes that will provide the commander with an organic and persistent EW capability, allowing him to control the EMS at the time and place of his choosing. MAGTF EW transitions the Marine Corps from focus on low-density/high-demand EW resources (EA-6B), to a distributed platform-agnostic approach, wherein any available sensor can be interconnected into a scalable, responsive, and cost-effective integrated system. Speaker Biography: LtCol Schuette enlisted in the Navy in 1986 and graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1992. After being selected to fly EA-6B's he completed initial flight training in 1997. He has over 2,000 hours in the EA-6B during which he has been designated a Weapons Training Instructor and flown in both Operations Allied Force and Iraqi Freedom. Additionally, LtCol Schuette was assigned to VX-9 and served as the Operational Test Director for the ICAP III ALQ-218 receiver upgrade for the EA-6B. During his time at VX-9 LtCol Schuette was also involved in the early development efforts for the EA-18G. When attached to the 22nd Marine Expeditionary (MEU) Unit he augmented the Command Element staff as an Air Officer and was their Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO) coordinating Counter R-CIED operations. LtCol Schuette was than assigned to the Operations Navy (OPNAV) staff in the N88 Strike Aviation Division Directorate developing Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) EW requirements to include the EA-6B as well as other airborne and ground EW efforts. LtCol Schuette's latest assignment is as the EW Branch Head (Cyber Integration Division) within the Combat Development and Integration Command. His responsibilities include establishing MAGTF EW requirements through the integrated planning team which covers EW, Cyber, SIGINT, CREW, network and spectrum management equities. The group oversees the writing and staffing of the Joint Capabilities Integration Documents necessary to support such hardware/software. His tasking is to support the Commandant of the Marine Corps' vision, which is to distribute future EMS capabilities via a Systems of Systems approach.

Modi Govt. Pushes For Big Bang Defence Reforms Unified Tri Services Command Soon
This video shows you that Modi Govt. pushes for Big Bang Defence Reforms Unified Tri Services Command Soon. The armed forces have formulated a new "joint doctrine" to ensure the Army, Navy and IAF plan and work together to effectively tackle the entire spectrum of conflict, ranging from full blown conventional wars to irregular and hybrid warfare, in the years ahead. Defence ministry sources say the around 80-page doctrine, which will formally be released next week, underlines the need for "application of military power" in an integrated manner to enhance operational efficiency as well as optimise utilisation of resources for a greater military punch from limited budgetary funds. Not only does the doctrine chart out a broad framework of principles for joint planning and the need to build an integrated land-air-sea-cyberspace war-fighting machinery, but also "signals" the intent of the Indian armed forces to the world at large, say the sources. But the doctrine comes at a time when India is still dragging its feet to create unified military structures from a desperately-needed tri-Service chief or chief of defence staff (CDS), which has been hanging fire since the 1999 Kargil conflict, to integrated theatre commands in the long-term. All this, incidentally, was discussed at the combined commanders' conference held at Dehradun in January, attended by PM Narendra Modi, as was first reported by TOI. Similarly, the long-awaited tri-Service organisations to handle the critical areas of space, cyberspace and special operations are still stuck due to politico-bureaucratic apathy. This despite the fact that the original proposal for full-fledged commands was whittled down to creation of just a Cyber Defence Agency, Defence Space Agency and Special Operations Directorate. In sharp contrast, China has an expansive military space programme and specialised cyber-warfare units, while last year it also re-organised its 2.3-million People's Liberation Army into five theatre commands for better command-and-control and greater offensive capabilities. The "Joint Doctrine of the Indian Armed Forces - 2017" is nevertheless a positive step to address the lack of military synergy in the country, with the Army, Navy and IAF often pulling in different directions on doctrinal, training, planning, procurement and operational matters. The integrated defence staff has prepared the doctrine, pitched at the "military strategic level", after extensive consultations with the three Service headquarters. Apart from the national security perspective and the use of military as an instrument of national power, the doctrine also dwells upon "external and internal threats", "traditional and non-traditional threats", "state and non-state actors", said the sources. "The first joint doctrine was released in 2006. Since then, a lot has changed in terms of geopolitics, threat perceptions, new dimensions in conflict, technology, policies and the like. This second doctrine looks at all that," said a source. A military doctrine is basically a set of ideas and beliefs, which sets a country's approach to national security challenges and how it plans to fight a war. The new joint doctrine will achieve its purpose if India rapidly moves towards integrated military structures and undertakes long-term strategic planning to systematically build military capabilities in tune with its geopolitical aspirations. air force india, air force planes, army indian, iaf, india defence export, indian air force, indian air force aircraft, indian air force information, indian air force planes, indian air force strength, indian aircraft, indian armed forces, indian army, indian army news, indian force, indian military, indian navy, indian navy force, indian navy ships, navy india ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

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/

US Military Has Manual For Destabilizing Nations
Video theme song:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuPtJjMWKiQ A Useful Idiot finds that there is actually a document and manual used by US military, intelligence,and State department, that describes a step by step methodology for undermining and destabilizing a state and manufacturing insurrections and riots.TC 18-01 "Special Forces Unconventional Warfare" isn't just about special forces combat, they are about infiltrating and disruption at the societal level for a geopolitical agenda.Pretty disappointing since we really have no business meddling in the internal functions of sovereign nations, let alone that we have a manual on exactly how to meddle in sovereign nations.
