FLASHBACK - Yes, the United States Used Biological Weapons on North Korea

Opinion — It’s sort of silly that it matters. The United States bombed North Korea flat with ordinary, non-bioweapons bombs. It ran out of standing structures to bomb. People lived in caves, if they lived. Millions died, most of them from regular old non-scandalous but mass-murderous bombs (including, of course, Napalm which melts people but doesn’t give them exotic diseases). North Koreans to this day live in such terror of a repetition of history that their behavior is sometimes inexplicable and bewildering to Americans whose knowledge of history comes from watching game shows.

US biowarfare against China, Iran and Italy

By now, the world already knows the US regime is desperately covering up its biological attack against China, Iran, and Italy.

I will summarize the main points underlying this case. First, what motivates US aggression against these three states [and many others]? Enter, the Wolfowitz doctrine, namely the US' official but unstated foreign policy is to crush all potential rivals to uphold us economic and military tyranny on earth.

America's political and military mission in the post-cold-war era will be to insure that no rival superpower is allowed to emerge

The events were kick started with US aggression
1. US starts trade War against China
2. US pulls out of the JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran and places crippling sanctions on Iran to topple its government
3. US threatens Europeans vassals to avoid China's OBOR/BRI project
4. US tries to crush Huawei through unscrupulous lawfare, sanctions, and a global smear campaign

US Has Produced its First in New Line of Updated 475-Kiloton Thermonuclear Warheads

The United States is expected to spend more than $1.2 trillion over the next three decades updating its nuclear arsenal, nearly all of which is more than 30 years old, dating back to the Cold War. However, some of the more recent and pricey additions have already been cut from the budget, like a sea-launched cruise missile.

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), a semi-autonomous agency of the US Department of Energy, announced on Tuesday that the first W88 Alt 370 had been completed at the Pantex Plant, a site in northern Texas where most of the US’ nuclear weapons are assembled. While the Pentagon is responsible for deciding how its nuclear weapons will be designed, the NNSA is responsible for actually assembling them.

Biden-Putin meeting: no to nuclear war, yes to wars that can lead to nuclear war

The Russian delegation hoped that “the United States does not intend to engage in a conflict with Russia using conventional weapons”

Russia intended to declare [the] inadmissibility of any war with the US, not just a nuclear one, in a statement following the Putin-Biden summit in Geneva. This position was expressed by the Russian side at a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers in Dushanbe on Wednesday, according to sources in the Russian delegation.

[T]he Russian delegation said that Moscow wanted “to state the inadmissibility of any war with the US, not only a nuclear one, considering the risks of it descending into a nuclear conflict between Russia and the US,” but the parties “so far agreed that it is precisely a nuclear war that was inadmissible.”

NATO’s activities near border pose nuclear threat to Russia – official

“All that shows that the West has actually set a course for military, strategic, political and psychological pressure on the Russian Federation, as well as the deliberate escalation of military tensions near the borders with Russia, which does not contribute to strategic stability.”

The Russian government news agency TASS reported on July 14 on stern warnings issued by the deputy secretary of the Russian Security Council, Mikhail Popov, in regard to NATO’s threat to his country. In an interview with the daily Rossiyskaya Gazeta, he said that recent Western activities demonstrate that the U.S. and its NATO allies have launched a campaign of military, political and psychological pressure against Russia and are escalating a dangerous military buildup on and near its borders.

First Improved W88 Nuclear Warhead For Navy's Trident Missiles Rolls Off The Assembly Line

The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration has announced the completion of the first production example of the improved W88 Alteration 370 warhead, or W88 Alt 370, after 11 years of work, and a major, costly delay that was first revealed more than a year ago. This modernization program is aimed at mitigating issues relating to the age of the existing stockpile of W88s and maintaining the readiness of these warheads, which are among multiple types presently available for loading into the U.S. Navy's Trident D5 submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

Fauci email shows that Daszak was manipulating bat coronaviruses to make them attack human cells

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has brought to light another damning email showing that Tony Fauci has, in fact, been heavily involved with illegal gain of function research on bat coronaviruses is communist China.

The latest incriminating email to surface was sent to Fauci by EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak back in 2017, in which Daszak admitted that he was “doing assays to find out if [manipulated bat coronaviruses] can infect human cells in the lab.”

The subject line of the email reads, “Confidential – A new bat-origin coronavirus emerging in pigs in China discovered under our NIAID R01,” proving that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under Fauci was actively funding Daszak’s gain of function research.

Former CDC director: Scientists modified coronavirus before it leaked out of Wuhan lab

Virologist Dr. Robert Redfield said he thinks the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was modified by Chinese scientists before it leaked out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China’s central Hubei province. The former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) added that the COVID-19 virus’s ability to jump from an animal to a human is not “biologically plausible.” While earlier reports claimed that the pathogen came from bats, newfound evidence suggests it originated in the WIV lab, which has sparked an ongoing debate.

Redfield doubled down on his belief of the lab leak theory in a June 15 interview with Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel. He said that the virus’s ability to spread rapidly has never been seen in other coronaviruses. And while most coronaviruses can cross over from animals to humans, zoonosis usually occurs at a much slower pace than what was seen with the Wuhan coronavirus.

Pentagon Document Warns of ‘Increased Potential’ for Nuclear War

The Pentagon warned of an “increased potential” for a nuclear conflict in a document that was released to the public on Tuesday. The document is a manual on the Pentagon’s nuclear strategy originally published in April 2020. It was posted online this week after being obtained by the Federation of American Scientists through the Freedom of Information Act.

Ukraine Accuses Russia of Storing Nukes in Crimea

Ukrainian First Deputy Foreign Minister Emine Dzhaparova on Wednesday claimed the Russian military is deploying nuclear weapons and their related infrastructure to the occupied Crimean Peninsula.

“Russia is actively expanding its military infrastructure for nuclear arms and reconstructing the infrastructure of Soviet-era nuclear warheads. Potential nuclear weapons carriers are already stationed on the peninsula,” she said, according to the Kyiv Post.

North Korea Needs the Bomb to Protect Itself From America

North Korea “continues to enhance its ballistic missile capability and possesses the technical capacity to present a real danger to the U.S. homeland as well as our allies and partners across the Indo-Pacific,” Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently told Congress. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin made a similar point: “We also face challenges from North Korea, a country with the ambition to be capable of striking the U.S. homeland.”

Report: China Building over a Hundred ICBM Silos in Western Desert

A study of satellite images produced by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in California this week revealed China is constructing over 100 new silos for intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) in the northwestern desert of Gansu province.

“The acquisition of more than 100 new missile silos, if completed, would represent a historic shift for China, a country that is believed to possess a relatively modest stockpile of between 250 and 350 nuclear weapons. The actual number of new missiles intended for those silos is unknown but could be much smaller. China has deployed decoy silos in the past,” the Washington Post noted Wednesday.

The James Martin Center spotted 119 construction sites laid out in a grid over hundreds of square miles near the Chinese city of Yuman, with each launch site separated from its closest neighbor by at least two miles.

Putin's 'City-Killer': Russia Launches World's Largest Nuclear-Armed Submarine

It's being popularly dubbed "Putin's city-killer" - and is also being widely acknowledged as the largest submarine in the world to be built for 30 years: Russian Navy's 'Special Mission' K-329 Belgorod has been put to see for the first time within the past days, undergoing sea trials.

Estimated at 178 meters (584 feet) long and about 15 meters (49 feet) across, it's twice the size of the UK Royal Navy's largest submarines, but more impressively is equipped with AI-guided nuclear tipped underwater drones which according to one prominent Western source are capable of hitting coastal targets lying 6,000 miles away.

The Belgorod has been known about and teased by the Kremlin for years, but is now being hailed in Russian media as a "game changer".

One military expert with the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), Dr. Sidharth Kaushal, explained to The Mail on Sunday:

Russia, China could launch Pearl Harbor-style attack on Hawaii: Senior Japanese defence official

“We have to show the deterrence towards China, and not just China but also the Russians, because, as I told you, that they are doing their exercises together,” Japanese deputy Yasuhide Nakayama told the Hudson Institute this week, according to Washington Examiner.

“Seventy years ago, we attacked Pearl Harbor, but now the U.S. and Japan [are] very good allies, one of the best allies all over the world,” he said, noting that Russia is conducting naval drills in the Pacific this week. “I don’t want to remind [us of the attack] 70 years ago, but we have to be careful of the exercising of the Russians. They are taking place [off] the western side of that, Honolulu, I mean, in Hawaii.”

Decisions That Would Cause U.S. To Lose World War III

This month marked the 80th anniversary of Nazi Germany’s invasion of the Soviet Union which took place on June 22, 1941. Hitler’s witting or unwitting pre-emptive attack against the Red Army, which were massed on the borders of eastern Germany, western Poland, Hungary, and Romania poised for their own invasion, enabled the Germans to capture or destroy tens of thousands of Soviet tanks and aircraft. Some authors who have examined Soviet archives have suggested the offensive was scheduled to take place a mere two and a half weeks after Hitler’s attack.

Why Fort Detrick lab should be investigat3ed for global COVID-19 origins tracing

The lab-leak theory, that COVID-19 was leaked from a laboratory, has once again caused a clamor since the beginning of this year, months after the argument was thrown into the trash can of conspiracy theories by an overwhelming number of scientists.

Observers found that things only get more complicated when the origins of the coronavirus - an already difficult scientific issue - is entangled in political manipulation tricks. Combing through more than 8,000 pieces of news reports related to the lab-leak theory, the Global Times found that as many as 60 percent of the coverage was from the US alone.

New Study Finds COVID-19 'Very Well Adapted' To Specifically Infect Humans

An Australian team of researchers has published a new study which found that SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, appears to be specifically adapted to attack human cells, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Flinders University professor and vaccine researcher Dr Nikolai Petrovsky was part of a team that discovered that Covid-19 is uniquely adapted to attack human cells.
The scientists from Flinders University and La Trobe used powerful computers to model the protein receptors in a number of animal species to see how the coronavirus’s spike protein attached itself to them.

The theory was that if the coronavirus attached itself readily to an animal like a bat or a pangolin, it would have likely been the species that the bug used to make its leap into the human population.

However, the modelling found that the coronavirus’s spike protein was best suited to attacking protein receptors in humans.

The Crimes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Four Senators Ask Biden to Clear Oppenheimer’s Name

When the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II, 110,000-210,000 people were instantly killed. Japan surrendered in the days that followed. Not long after, nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who led the Manhattan Project—the research and development program that produced the bomb—was awarded the highest US honor bestowed on civilians for his contribution to the war effort: a Medal of Merit. But Oppenheimer came to regret his participation in the unprecedented devastation, which included thousands more deaths over time due to radiation exposure.

US Plans to Test Its $60 Billion Replacement for Ageing Minuteman ICBMs in 2023

If the tests show satisfying results, Washington is likely to order 400 such missiles to replace their ageing stockpile. The first new ICBMs are expected to be delivered by 2036.

The Pentagon is eyeing 2023 for conducting the first test flights of the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), the GBSD programme's manager has said. The tests will be carried out at the Vandenberg Air Force Base at the end of 2023.

Right now, the GBSD developer, US defence industry giant Northrop Grumman is working on the "critical design review" of the ICBM's subsystems, according to a report by the magazine Air Force. The missile itself was developed using digital engineering, which allows computers to find the optimal configuration for a piece of military equipment. The method permits the virtual testing of alternative configurations of a missile to determine the one that performs the best.

Russia Successfully Test Launches New Intercontinental Ballistic Missile

The latest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology (part of the state space corporation Roscosmos) was successfully test-launched from the Russian Defense Ministry’s 1st state testing spaceport, a source in the domestic defense industry told TASS on Monday.

"In mid-June, the latest unique ballistic missile developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology was successfully test-launched from the Plesetsk spaceport," the source said.

TASS has no official comment from the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology yet.

As was reported earlier, the Moscow Institute of thermal Technology has started developing the sophisticated Kedr silo-based and mobile ICBM modifications as part of the effort of upgrading Russia’s strategic armaments.

Blood & Fog: The Military's Germ Warfare Tests in San Francisco

The Nuremberg Code was drafted in 1947 following the appalling revelations of human experimentation committed in Nazi concentration camps. The overarching goal of the Code was to establish a set of rules for the ethical conduct of research using human subjects, guaranteeing that the rights and welfare of such participants would be protected. Two important principles guide and define this Code: the concept of voluntary, informed consent and that no experiment shall be conducted in which “there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur.”

Just four short years later, the government of the United States would violate the Code as it undertook one of the largest human experiments in history, spraying the city of San Francisco with a microbe, Serratia marcescens, in a simulated germ warfare attack.

China's Disturbing Nuclear Buildup

In recent summits of Western nations, two shots were fired over the bow of China.

At the Group of Seven (G-7) forum held in Cornwall, England, in early June, the leading Western economic powers announced a new international infrastructure initiative, intended to draw lower-income nations away from China’s burgeoning Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

This action was quickly followed up by the NATO summit held in Brussels a few days later, which in its official communiqué issued a dark warning about China’s military modernization. For the first time, NATO singled out China for its “assertive behavior,” which it said presented “systemic challenges to the rules-based international order and to areas relevant to Alliance security.”

In particular, NATO noted China’s nuclear arsenal, which it said was “rapidly expanding,” with “more warheads and a larger number of sophisticated delivery systems,” intended “to establish a nuclear triad” comprising land-, sea-, and air-based systems.

Living With World’s End in Plain Sight

This editor’s note introduced the single article that took up almost every inch of space in the August 31, 1946, New Yorker magazine:

“TO OUR READERS: The New Yorker this week devotes its entire editorial space to an article on the almost complete obliteration of a city by one atomic bomb, and what happened to the people of that city. It does so in the conviction that few of us have yet comprehended the all but incredible destructive power of this weapon, and that everyone might well take time to consider the terrible implications of its use. – THE EDITORS”

That article was, of course, journalist John Hersey’s account of the destruction of the Japanese city of Hiroshima by an American atomic bomb and the stories of six survivors of that devastating single blast. It caused a sensation at the time and was recently memorialized in Lesley M.M. Blume’s riveting book, Fallout: The Hiroshima Cover-up and the Reporter Who Revealed It to the World.

The nuclear doctrine: Army chief Gerasimov explains that Moscow reserves right to fire nukes if enemies use them against Russia

Russia has the right to use nuclear warheads in response to the use of weapons of mass destruction against it or its allies, and may even deploy them against conventional weapons if “the very existence of the state is threatened.”

That's according to Valery Gerasimov, the head of Russia's armed forces, speaking to the Moscow Conference on International Security on Wednesday. Gerasimov has been in his post since 2012 and was sanctioned by the EU in 2014 for allegedly “threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence of Ukraine.”

“The country's nuclear policy is purely defensive in nature,” Gerasimov explained. “[However], Russia reserves the right to use nuclear weapons in response to the use of nuclear and other types of weapons of mass destruction against it or its allies, and in cases of aggression against Russia using conventional weapons when the very existence of the state is threatened.”

LEAKED CABLE: Hillary Clinton Privately Warned France that Wuhan P4 Lab May Lead to Bioweapon Research

In a leaked State Department cable from 2009, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could lead to “biological weapons proliferation concern.”

The cable, obtained via Wikileaks, was sent from the State Department in June 2009 to all embassies in member nations ahead of the Australia Group plenary session in Paris, September 21-25, 2009. The Australia Group is an international export control forum organized to prevent the spread of technologies and research that could be used in chemical and biological weapons. All Five Eyes nations are members of the group, including the EU, India, Japan, and South Korea. China is not a member of the group.

The cable stated, “We believe it is important to focus on emerging chemical and biological technologies, trends in the trade of CBW-related goods and threats.”

REVEALED: Google FUNDED virus research carried out by Wuhan-linked scientist Peter Daszak for over a decade, new report reveals, amid accusations Big Tech has silenced COVID lab leak theory

Google funded research carried out by Wuhan-linked scientist Peter Daszak and his charity for more than a decade, it has been revealed.

The tech giant's charity arm, Google.org, has repeatedly provided financial backing for research and studies carried out by scandal-hit Daszak and his New York-based EcoHealth Alliance.

The financial ties, which were first reported by The National Pulse, are disclosed in various scientific studies between 2010 and 2018.

The studies are not related to COVID-19 or the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Google on Tuesday issued a statement saying: 'These are ludicrous and baseless conspiracy theories.'

New Chinese Submarine Armed With Missiles Capable of Covering Entire US, Reports Say

China's newly commissioned nuclear-powered submarine, dubbed the Type 094A, is equipped with ballistic missiles capable of hitting targets at a distance of 10,000 kilometres (6,200 miles) — the most powerful in the country, the South China Morning Post reported, citing a military source.

"The Type 094A is an upgraded version of the Type 094 that overcame one of the key problems – noise – by improving hydrokinetic and turbulent systems, allowing it to carry the more powerful JL-3", the source was quoted as saying on Sunday.

Before the upgrade, the submarine was capable of firing the inferior JL-2 that could only hit the northeast United States, the source said, noting that currently, it is able to cover the whole American continent.

Why Was the US Department of Defense Funding Bioweapons Research at Wuhan?

Late Friday the British publication DailyMail reported that the United States Department of Defense provided $39 million in grant funding to “EcoHealth Alliance” as part of the aggregated grant funding received by EcoHealth Alliance to conduct various types of “gain of function” virus research – a type of research in which scientists engineer viruses to make them more transmissible or lethal and which can be used to create bioweapons.

EcoHealth Alliance used a large amount of its funding to support research projects on the subject at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, led by Chinese “bat virus” expert Dr. Shi Zenglhi — the “Bat Lady.”

While the Daily Mail report is fairly exhaustive, I think it is important to note that RedState, led by my colleague Scott Hounsell, was asking questions about US government funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab back in February.

The Covid BioWeapon: Made in the USA, Aimed at China

“…..we are left with the strong likelihood that Covid came from a laboratory along with a good possibility that it was designed as a bioweapon, yet we lack serious indications that any lab-leak occurred. So if the original Wuhan outbreak was due to the deployment of a powerful bioweapon but not one that had accidentally leaked from any lab, then surely China was the intended target, the victim rather than the perpetrator….

Given our ongoing military and geopolitical confrontation with China, America seems the likely source of the attack… The most likely suspects would be rogue elements of our national security establishment, probably some of the Deep State Neocons whom Trump had placed near the top of his administration.

PETER DASZAK'S ECOHEALTH ALLIANCE HAS HIDDEN ALMOST $40 MILLION IN PENTAGON FUNDING AND MILITARIZED PANDEMIC SCIENCE

“Pandemics are like terrorist attacks: We know roughly where they originate and what’s responsible for them, but we don’t know exactly when the next one will happen. They need to be handled the same way — by identifying all possible sources and dismantling those before the next pandemic strikes.”

This statement was written in the New York Times earlier this year by Peter Daszak. Daszak is the longtime president of the EcoHealth Alliance, a New York-based non-profit whose claimed focus is pandemic prevention. But the EcoHealth Alliance, it turns out, is at the very centre of the COVID-19 pandemic in many ways.

To depict the pandemic in such militarized terms is, for Daszak, a commonplace. In an Oct. 7 online talk organized by Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, Daszak presented a slide titled “Donald Rumsfeld’s Prescient Speech.”:

'Partners with the Chinese': Ex-DOD official says U.S is 'complicit' in COVID lab leak

Stephen Bryen, the founding director of the Pentagon's Defense Technology Security Administration, believes it's time for the U.S. to confront its own culpability in the COVID-19 pandemic — starting with tough questions about the Defense Department's funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese lab now widely suspected as ground zero in the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to humans.

Last month, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul grilled Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as U.S. funding that made its way to the WIV to support research on bat coronaviruses suspected of being exploited in gain of function experiments. Fauci categorically denied under oath any gain of function funding present or past by the National Institutes of Health, the NIAID's parent agency.

This Close US Ally Is Selling China Billions In Military-Related Equipment

Authored by Mark Curtis via Consortium News,

The UK government has authorized the sale of £2.6-billion worth of military and civilian equipment with potential military use to China in the past three years, government figures show. Last year saw a tripling in exports to China of "dual use" items defined as "civilian goods with a military purpose."” Some £1.6-billion worth were authorized in 2020, compared to £526-million in 2019.

The increase coincided with the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020. The exports have been approved while China is identified by the British government as “an increasing risk to U.K. interests” and "the biggest state-based threat to the U.K.’s economic security."

"Then when you get a sequence of a virus, and it looks like a relative of a known nasty pathogen, just like we did with SARS. We found other coronaviruses in bats, a whole host of them, some of them looked very similar to SARS. So we sequenced the spike protein: the protein that attaches to cells. Then we… Well I didn’t do this work, but my colleagues in China did the work. You create pseudo particles, you insert the spike proteins from those viruses, see if they bind to human cells. At each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people. You end up with a small number of viruses that really do look like killers." Peter Daszak

Wuhan Lab 'Experts' Deny Lab Leak, Claim No Workers Sickened With COVID-19

Anonymous experts at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) have dismissed theories that COVID-19 leaked from their lab, as well as US intelligence that three lab workers fell ill with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, according to Chinese state-run ECNS.CN.

The experts, who requested anonymity, said individuals from the West can present their proof if they have any. They also dismissed as groundless the reports from some media outlets that three workers from the institute had contracted the virus. -ECNS

Explosive, Unearthed Video Shows Peter Daszak Describing ‘Chinese Colleagues’ Developing ‘Killer’ Coronaviruses.

EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak – who collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on research funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease – appears to boast about the manipulation of “killer” SARS-like coronaviruses carried out by his “colleagues in China” in a clip unearthed by The National Pulse.
Daszak made the admission at a 2016 forum discussing “emerging infectious diseases and the next pandemic,” which appears to be at odds with Fauci’s repeated denial of funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

While describing how his organization sequences deadly viruses, Daszak describes the process of “insert[ing] spike proteins” into viruses to see if they can “bind to human cells” as being carried out by his “colleagues in China”:

Troops Leaving, But US Commits Billions to Fund Afghan Fighting$3.3 billion annually to go to Afghan military

US troops leaving Afghanistan was meant to mark the end of the war in Afghanistan. As it stands, however, it seems that the administration is going through any hoops possible that might keep the war going and the US deeply invested in it.

The latest sign of the Afghan War to come was envoy Zalmay Khalilzad and a delegation committing the US to $3.3 billion annually in direct funding to the Afghan military. This is just one aspect of all the US aid to Afghanistan still being negotiated.

The US spent decades designing an Afghan military that the country could never afford, and it was assumed the US would be on the hook for some subsidy. The sheer size of the funding, however, points to a US vision that they’re going to keep fighting a war, and doing it on the US dime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Federal ego and insanity writ large.

Bring our troops home; Let the Afghanis decide their future; negotiate with whatever government is still standing in Kabul post-troop withdrawal, for the oil rights, and call it a day.

US Troops In Iraq Targeted By Increasingly Sophisticated Combat Drones

The thousands of US troops still in Iraq are increasingly monitoring the threat from the skies, as a series of combat drones from an unknown source have reportedly targeted American bases over the past few months, according to a Friday report in The New York Times. The report blames "Iran-backed militia" for deployments of sophisticated small drones, citing the usual anonymous sources.

The following day on Saturday, a new attack on Ain al-Asad Air Base in Iraq was reported: "The air defense system at Ain al-Asad Air Base in Iraq, where American forces are stationed, shot down two drones that attempted to attack the base on Saturday night, according to the Iraqi Security Media Cell."

However, I would like to politely point out that a US war against Iran would most probably translate as a war against both Russia and China right now; is US leadership so thooroughly idiotic, as to believe that such a war could actually be won, given that we don't have the troop strength; weaponry; money; or manufacturing to make that happen?!?

British Army's New Ajax Tank Makes Troops Sick 

The British Army is modernizing its forces with new armored fighting vehicles. One vehicle, in particular, called the "Ajax," produced by General Dynamics UK, has been in testing with the service after a multi-billion dollar deal. But there's a problem, the vehicles are so noisy and vibrate violently during operations that tank crews are becoming sick, according to The Times.

The UK government ordered 589 Ajax tanks, formerly known as the Scout SV (Specialist Vehicle), a family of armored fighting vehicles being developed by General Dynamics. A deal between the service and the defense firm was inked in 2014 for $4.5 billion, and after trials in November, it appears these tanks are far from battle-ready.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insanity, writ large.

Why is it that the companies responsible for creating weaponry feel it is perfectly fine to provide Britain's military with absolute crud, where the engineering has obviously not been thought through at all?!?

Mind you, I hate war; but there should be, in large type, a caveat in every contract for every military bit of weaponry, that if the item does not perform flawlessly, within spec, from the first trial of that weaponry, that the presidents of those corporations who made it, are looking at jail time, and NOT in Britain's equivalent of a Club Fed!!

Biden’s grounding of Open Skies treaty is folly amid Russian tensions. And it’s a head-scratcher, since his campaign once called Trump’s withdrawal of the Cold War agreement ‘short-sighted.’

The Biden administration had an opportunity to salvage the Treaty on Open Skies (OS), but they have chosen to let it die.

The U.S. had withdrawn from the treaty under the previous administration in November 2020, and there was a chance that Biden could have rejoined it. Last month, the State Department announced that the U.S. would not rejoin the treaty, and the Russian government has taken steps to exit the treaty as well.

The exit of the two largest states from Open Skies marks its demise for all intents and purposes. The decision represents a reversal from Biden’s criticism of Trump’s withdrawal, which he had previously characterized as “short-sighted.” The administration’s bizarre decision to bury the treaty makes it less likely that the U.S. and Russia will be able to make any progress on a new arms control agenda, and it casts a pall over the upcoming Geneva summit on June 16. Arms control experts reacted to Biden’s decision with dismay and bewilderment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American comedian Ron White, in his stand-up routine, had a statement which very mucn describes this decision; "You can't fix stupid!!", and this is precisely how this decision on the part of Team Biden, can be succinctly described.

After Very Public Pause, US Arms Companies Resume Political Donations

Political rancor and tensions surround the 2020 election had many US companies trying to distance themselves from the process by halting political donations. This included one of the biggest sectors for buying influence, the arms industry.

After a few months to reexamine things, the arms companies are back to throwing money around, donating in large quantities to members of both parties involved in military spending, and trying to ensure that they stay on good terms with everyone responsible for their business’ contracts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And this weapons-centric money manifests as a policy of perpetual war on the part of this government.

In an honest government, not one cent would be allowed from companies which make weapons.

Unfortunately, however, this government has devolved into one where it cannot do otherwise than create consistently horrific outcomes, both domestically and internationally.

I would like to politely point out, that everything we understand, has a life cycle; planets; people;... and governments.

I cannot tell you what the next phase of US government will look like, if it is able to continue to stand for a littel while longer, but I can tell you one thing for certain; this heady combination of" broke, woke, and dystopian", most probably cannot not survive for very much longer.

Infographic: What you need to know about Israel’s military

Last month, as Israel bombarded the besieged Gaza Strip for the fourth time in 12 years, the United States approved a $735m arms sale to Israel. The approval was criticised by legislators in Congress, and several Democrats introduced resolutions to block the sale of Boeing’s precision-guided missiles.

Israel’s 11-day military campaign killed at least 253 people, including 66 children, in Gaza. At least 12 people were killed in Israel by rockets fired by Palestinian armed groups in Gaza. The UN Human Rights Council has set up a panel to investigate both sides for possible war crimes and human rights group Amnesty International has renewed its call for a halt to US weapons sales to Israel.

Gaza has been described as the world’s largest open-air prison. Since 2006, Israel has imposed a land, sea and air blockade on its 2.1 million inhabitants. Israeli forces continue to militarily occupy East Jerusalem and the West Bank where they have built hundreds of illegal settlements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Israel's weapons industry is thriving, why does it need so much military and financial support from the US, while the US infrastructure is crumbling around us?!?

THAT... appears to be the dreadedly unasked, and unanswerable question, for Congress, for which the US Congress must be held to account, by We the People.

US Actively Prepares for War with Russia

Since the relationship between the United States and Russia has taken a turn for the worse in recent years, it is quite clear to the author that, nowadays, the US administration has been seeking confrontation with the Russian Federation, be it over politics, trade or even the construction of Nord Stream 2 (which is of no concern to the US) for the European Union (EU). And President Joe Biden is seemingly trying to achieve this aim by using fairly aggressive and ideologically divisive rhetoric as a tool.

Based on a number of reports published by American and Western media outlets, aside from anti-Russia propaganda, the US government has essentially begun its preparations for an invasion of Russia via the Baltic countries, the Black Sea, the Arctic Ocean and regions bordering the Russian Federation to the East.

FLASHBACK 2019 - Last U.S. Chemical Weapons Stockpile Set To Be Destroyed

In a move that marks the end of an era, destruction of the country's last chemical weapons stockpile starts this summer in Kentucky. It comes after years of debate over how to do it safely.

FLASHBACK 2017 - Russia Destroys Chemical Weapons, and Faults U.S. for Not Doing So

President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia presided over the destruction of his country’s last declared chemical weapons on Wednesday, describing the elimination as a “historic event” and complaining that the United States has failed to purge its own chemical arsenal.

The carefully choreographed event, broadcast on state television, cast Mr. Putin as a peacemaker and determined defender of international law. It seemed designed to offset the reputation he has acquired for belligerence and the flouting of international norms amid Russia’s military interventions in Ukraine in 2014 and in Syria.

As has become customary at public appearances by the Russian president, Mr. Putin used the occasion to take a dig at Washington. He suggested that it was playing a devious double game by pushing back the American goal of eliminating its chemical arms, which is not scheduled to happen for six years.

Did Fauci Spend US Tax Dollars On China's Bio-Weapons?

American taxpayers apparently financially supported a Chinese "biological weapons program against the U.S.," according to Far East relations specialist Gordon Chang on Newsmax, who argued U.S. government cooperation in the global coronavirus pandemic will not be brought forward by the Biden administration.

"The intelligence community, our intelligence community, should just declassify that now," Chang told Monday's "John Bachman Now." "We don't need to wait 90 days to get a highly politicized report from people who have gotten it wrong on China consistently over decades."

President Joe Biden put the onus of a 90-day report on the COVID-19 origins on U.S. intelligence officials after closing the State Department's probe last week, Chang said, noting a severe, if not dangerous, battle of interest for the U.S. government.

New Documents Shed Light On US Federal Funded Wuhan Lab

The National Institutes of Health, which has been in the fame area for its connections to the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology, is the single biggest funder for biomedical research globally, with a budget surpassing $40 billion in 2020.

The agency encompasses 27 separate institutes, like the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, which carry thousands of study projects across the United States.

NIH Director Francis Collins was keen to highlight the agency’s innovative achievements throughout congressional hearings this week amid mounting questions regarding the concept that COVID-19 could have escaped from the Wuhan lab last year.

The Biological Weapons Convention at a crossroad

Biological weapons are frightening, indiscriminate killers. In 1979, an accidental release of anthrax from a weapons facility in Russia’s Sverdlovsk killed at least 66 people. In Oregon in 1984, 751 people who ate or worked at area restaurants got Salmonella gastroenteritis—it was later determined that the outbreak was caused by intentional contamination of restaurant salad bars by members of a religious commune. In another case involving anthrax, in 2001, several letters sent to U.S. members of Congress and media outlets infected 22 people, killing five and forcing over $1 billion in cleanup costs. More recently, there have been warnings that terrorist groups like ISIS, rogue countries like North Korea, or violent transnational groups like Boko Haram could gain access to biological agents—or even deadly diseases like Ebola or Zika—and use them to create weapons of mass destruction.

FLASHBACK - US shuts down its biological warfare lab

America’s main biological warfare lab has been ordered to stop all research into the deadliest viruses and pathogens over fears contaminated waste could leak out of the facility.

Fort Detrick, in Maryland, has been the epicentre of the US Army’s bioweapons research since the beginning of the Cold War.

But last month the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – the government’s public health body – stripped the base of its license to handle highly restricted “select agents”, which includes Ebola, smallpox and anthrax.

The unusual move follows an inspection by the CDC at Fort Detrick which found several problems with new procedures used to decontaminate waste water.

For years the facility used a steam sterilisation plant to treat waste water, but after a storm flooded and ruined that machinery last year, Fort Detrick switched to a new chemical-based decontamination system.

Beijing’s Mouthpiece Calls for Equipping PLA With More Nuclear Weapons to Intimidate the US

Chinese state-owned media outlet Global Times has urged the regime to equip the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) with the largest possible number of nuclear warheads and missiles in a short time, to “make the U.S. elites tremble when they think about fighting with China.”

“We must prepare for a tense ending to the United States’s and China’s relationship,” Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Global Times, wrote in a May 28 editorial. “Once this happens, having a big stock of DF-41, JL-2, and JL-3 missiles will be a pillar of strength to support China’s will to fight.”

The DF-41 is China’s solid-fueled, road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile, and the JL-2 and JL-3 are China’s intercontinental-range, submarine-launched ballistic missiles. All three of these missiles can carry nuclear warheads.

Hu’s comments are in response to Kurt Campbell, President Joe Biden’s Indo-Pacific policy coordinator, who recently said the United States and China are competitors.

Killer drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told to

Arnold Schwarzenegger could’ve seen this one coming.

After a United Nations commission to block killer robots was shut down in 2018, a new report from the international body now says the Terminator-like drones are now here.

Last year “an autonomous weaponized drone hunted down a human target last year” and attacked them without being specifically ordered to, according to a report from the UN Security Council’s Panel of Experts on Libya, published in March 2021 that was published in the New Scientist magazine and the Star.

The March 2020 attack was in Libya and perpetrated by a Kargu-2 quadcopter drone produced by Turkish military tech company STM “during a conflict between Libyan government forces and a breakaway military faction led by Khalifa Haftar, commander of the Libyan National Army,” the Star reports, adding: “The Kargu-2 is fitted with an explosive charge and the drone can be directed at a target in a kamikaze attack, detonating on impact.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That one note at the end, that it "required no human controller.." sent chills down my spine; when, in war, to we go from being "in control" of autonomous systems, to no longer in control, so these weapons can kill at will, what does that forshadow for humankind's future?!?

My short answer is, nothing particularly good.

The United States Is a Serial Nuclear Aggressor Whose Moral Bankruptcy Threatens World Peace

The United States is a serial nuclear aggressor whose veneer of supposed virtue is a thin and increasingly transparent disguise for moral bankruptcy.

More than 60 years ago, American military chiefs were closer than previously known to dropping atomic bombs on China over a relatively minor crisis with the renegade territory of Taiwan. The new revelations came from veteran whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg who worked as a nuclear weapons strategist at the Rand Corporation and at the Pentagon during the 1950s and 60s.

Ellsberg was the source of the famous Pentagon Papers which he leaked 50 years ago exposing the official U.S. lies about its criminal involvement in the Vietnam War during the 1960s and 70s.

Fauci In 2012: Gain-Of-Function Research Into Bat Viruses Is Worth The Risk Of A Pandemic

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci defended “gain-of-function” research in 2012 — wherein scientists extract viruses from the wild and engineer them to infect humans in order to study potential therapeutics including vaccines — as research worth risking a pandemic over.

“In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic?” Fauci wrote in a paper reported on by The Australian. “Scientists working in this field might say — as indeed I have said — that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks.”

US Tells Russia It Won’t Rejoin Open Skies

The Biden administration has informed Russia that the US will not rejoin the Open Skies Treaty, an arms control agreement that allows unarmed surveillance flights over participating countries.

The Trump administration withdrew from the treaty last year. Russia had been attempting to salvage it, but the Biden administration’s decision appears to be the final nail in the coffin for Open Skies.

Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman informed Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov of the US decision on Thursday.

As a candidate, President Biden slammed the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from the treaty. In May 2020, Biden released a statement that said a US withdrawal from Open Skies would “exacerbate growing tensions between the West and Russia, and increase the risks of miscalculation and conflict.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another Bidenesque flip-flop, that leaves the people of both Russia and the US less safe; bravo, sir, way to GO!!!!!

???????Russian Spy Ship Quietly Parked In Waters Off Hawaii

A Russian Navy surveillance ship parked in international waters off Kauai, an island in the Central Pacific, part of the Hawaiian archipelago, has delayed a Missile Defense Agency missile test, according to Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

The US Pacific Fleet confirmed Wednesday that it "is aware of the Russian vessel operating in international waters in the vicinity of Hawaii, and will continue to track it through the duration of its time here."

The ship has been operating in international waters just 13 nautical miles west of Kauai for several days. The vessel is not broadcasting an automatic identification system signal.

U.S. Naval Institute News first identified the presence of the spy ship, indicating it was a Russian Navy Vishnya-class auxiliary general intelligence (AGI) ship Kareliya (SSV-535). Honolulu Star-Advertiser then expanded on this and said the vessel is in the vicinity of the Pacific Missile Range and has "delayed" a missile test.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If it is, in fact, in international waters, according to sea treaties, there is nothing the US government can really do about its presence there.

But one has to wonder; what kind of intel might its sophisticated tracking equipment picking up, and how will that be used against US military assets in the future?!?

America's Lone Carrier In Asia-Pacific Will Depart Region For Afghan Troop Withdrawal

Currently the sole US aircraft carrier based out of the Asian-Pacific, specifically with a home port in Yokosuka, Japan, is the USS Ronald Reagan - but it's now set to depart the region for the first time in years in preparation for the complete withdrawal of US troops in Afghanistan.

Pentagon officials told The Wall Street Journal the new carrier mission will see the Reagan depart Asian-Pacific waters this summer in support of ensuring a safe US troop exit from Afghanistan by the time of Biden's Sept. 11 deadline. There's growing concern that given Americans are now staying well past the previously agreed upon May 1st exit (based on the prior deal under the Trump White House), departing soldiers could face severe Taliban attacks, a scenario which is more likely the longer they stay. But now Congressional hawks worry about the glaring "gap" to be created should ongoing tensions with China escalate.

Was the US complicit in China’s Covid research?

The Joe Biden administration closed the US State Department’s investigation into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic.

But as the pandemic recedes in the United States, there is renewed interest by the scientific and journalistic communities about the origins of the virus and whether it could have escaped from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). So, a day later, the president opened a new investigation.

The flip-flop came amid Senator Rand Paul’s claim at a Senate committee hearing on the Covid-19 pandemic that the US collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China to make a more deadly, transmittable coronavirus. That’s putting the Chinese lab leak theory, which Beijing vigorously denies, back at the forefront of the Covid-19 origin debate.

Chinese Paper Calls for Probe of US’ Fort Detrick Biolab Amid Wuhan Lab COVID-19 Origins Fracas

Chinese scientists sequenced the genome of SARS-CoV-2 in early January 2020 and by March of that year had “irrefutably” concluded the virus was not of human design. Since then, the goalposts have shifted repeatedly in an attempt to keep laboratory escape a viable theory, despite no evidence to support the continued supposition.

Amid a flurry of statements by US health figures suggesting a deeper probe of the Wuhan Institute of Virology is warranted as part of the hunt for the origins of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, China’s state media has shot back, suggesting that the top US biolab at Fort Detrick should also be investigated.

“If they see the ‘lab leak’ theory as one of the directions of the investigation, the Wuhan Institute of Virology should not be the only one included,” the editors of the Global Times, a daily paper published by the Communist Party-owned People’s Daily, wrote on Wednesday.

Soil in Australian outback could STILL be leaking plutonium 65 years after British nuclear tests

n the mid-1950s, Great Britain tested nuclear weapons at Maralinga, a remote area about 500 miles northwest of Adelaide.

Radioactive waste dotted the landscape for decades and the Australian government has spent millions on cleanup.

But researchers have discovered 'hot particles,' microscopic bits of plutonium and uranium, are still leaking into the soil and groundwater.

Israel-Palestine: The girl who showed the world the suffering of Gaza's children

The video of 10-year-old Palestinian Nadine Abdullatif, tearful and devastated as she stands in front of the newly obliterated remains of her neighbour's home, has now been viewed more than 13 million times.

"You see all of this?" she asks, eyes red, gesturing at the rubble behind her. "What do you expect me to do? Fix it? I'm only 10."

Her voice breaks with emotion. "I just want to be a doctor or anything to help my people, but I can't. I'm just a kid."

The internet carried images of the recent spate of violence around the world over the past two weeks, as Israel once again dropped bombs on Gaza, a small stretch of land that is home to more than two million people - 40 percent of whom are under 14.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone with a conscience and a heart, cannot help but be moved by these, and other images, coming out of Gaza right now.

Blinken: No Sign Iran Will Accept Demands for Sanction Relief

Secretary of State Tony Blinken downplayed the chances of nuclear progress with Iran on Sunday, saying the US has seen no sign Iran will comply with the assorted US demands related to sanctions relief.

To be clear, Iran was complying with the terms of the nuclear deal for years, and has said they will do so again if the US meets its sanctions relief obligations. The US has made no effort to do this, and is demanding Iran go first in meeting all US requirements before any of Iran’s needs are discussed.

All of this gives the impression that this is a deal the US doesn’t really intend to make, and is being orchestrated such that they can try to sell the non-deal as purely Iran’s fault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Israel wants, from US foreign policy, Israel gets; please don't forget that, if we start seeing mushroom clouds over Tehran in the not too distant future.

Apparently, no one in the current US or Israeli administration is at all, even noddingly familiar, with Sun Tzu's "Art of War"; should such a US/Israeli war hit Iran, these Iranians will be fighting for the existence of their homeland.

Israeli Minister Threatens ‘Preemptive’ Strikes Against Hamas in Gaza

An Israeli minister from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party said Israel would start “preemptively” attacking targets in Gaza before Hamas or other groups launch rockets towards Israeli territory.

“We cannot wait for rocket fire [to respond in Gaza],” said Tzachi Hanegbi in an interview with Israel’s Channel 13. He said if Hamas is rearming or preparing rockets that it would be “cause for Israeli strikes” in Gaza. “This is a total change of the equation. We’ve never done this,” he said.

Hanegbi’s comments come after Israel’s 11-day bombing campaign in Gaza, which concluded on Friday after a ceasefire was reached. The Israeli bombardment killed 248 Palestinians, including 66 children. In Israel, 12 people were killed by rockets launched from Gaza, including two children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Minister Tzachi Hanegbi, pre-emptive attacks against Hamas are going to help the cease fire to hold..... how, please?!?

Or is this just another Israeli excuse for genocide against the Palestinians?!?

As Seeming Consensus Hardens for Cold – or Even Hot – War Against China: It Becomes Ever More Important to Fight for Peace

What a difference a presidential campaign and deadly pandemic make. Although the U.S. and People’s Republic of China long had been at odds over important issues, the bilateral relationship remained civil if not always friendly. Despite occasional spats, no one imagined a cold war, let alone actual hostilities. But 2020 changed everything. Today the possibility of conflict is on many Americans’ minds.

Scaremongering is pushing Washington toward conflict with Beijing. Observed Luo: "In recent decades, the defense industry has perfected this rhetoric to make the case for war on China. Republicans and Democrats – including both President Biden and even our most progressive members of Congress – amplify the warmongering and push for increased defense spending."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US infrastructure is rotting in place; homeless Vets sleep rough in our streets, and the only way the DC "foggy-bottomites" can think to fix it is.... more war?!?

After the debacles which have been Iraq and Afghanistan?!?

You have GOT to be flipping kidding me!!!

We don't have the weaponry; we don't have the troop strength; we don't have the manufacturing or the money to engage in any more major wars, thank you very much.

This country is broke, and broken, post-Covid, and post the wars that have failed, utterly and miserably, by any possible metric, to have achieved their alledged objectives.

Yet the antidote fo this collective and collossal failure of imagination.... is more wars?!?

Does anyone in DC recognise just how unalterably stupid that sounds, in the face of both the US's (and China's) economic challenges?!?

Iran Blocks Inspectors From Accessing Nuclear Site Images As Vienna Deal Looms

It appears that Iran may be applying some last-minute leverage just ahead of the final round of nuclear talks in Vienna, and at a moment it's being widely reported that the main parties, including the US, are on the cusp of agreeing on a deal as final documents are being drafted. Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf on Sunday announced that IAEA inspectors will no longer have access to surveillance images of the country's nuclear sites.

"From May 22 and with the end of the three-month agreement, the agency will have no access to data collected by cameras inside the nuclear facilities agreed under the agreement," Qalibaf said as announced in state television.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question now is, what is Israel prepared to do to prevent the from the renewal of the P5+1 agreement?!?

Unfortunately, the short answer is, anything they think they can get away with, including remote bombing of Iran's nuclear sites.

House GOP report: Likely U.S. engaged in ‘dangerous’ research in China, COVID escaped lab

House Intelligence Committee Republicans reported Wednesday evening they believe the U.S. government has engaged in "dangerous scientific research with China" that lends increasing credibility to the theory that COVID-19 may have accidentally leaked from a lab in Wuhan as early as October 2019.

Led by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the committee's ranking member, Republicans on the panel issued a 21-page report laying out "overwhelming" open-source evidence supporting the theory that the coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), including:

A U.S. State Department memo from January revealing that "several researchers at the Wuhan lab were sickened with COVID-19-like symptoms in fall 2019."

Media reports that there was no cell phone activity inside the WIV between Oct. 7, 2019 and Oct. 24, 2019, suggesting a possible shutdown or blackout at the facility.

Time To End the Silence on Israel’s Nuclear Weapons

The new administration has reiterated Pompeo’s terms of surrender of Iran and made the fulfillment of its obligations, i.e., the removal of sanctions, conditional on Iran relinquishing its defensive missile program, its vital regional alliances and extending the timeframe and Iran’s obligations under the JCPOA. Iran’s response has been to refuse to accept any demands and to insist on the verified, full removal of all sanctions. Rooted in this emergent and growing national consciousness is a mood for no compromise, empty promises or neo-colonial threats.

May 20 03:09

Time To End the Silence on Israel’s Nuclear Weapons

On April 28, Israel’s intelligence minister, Eli Cohen, repeated the Israeli threat that should the U.S. re-enter the JCPOA and remove the sanctions on Iran, Israel would hit Iran’s nuclear plants with long range missiles. This threat too was met with silent acquiescence on the part of the US and its Western allies, the same kind of silence that has met Israel’s continued acts of ethnic cleansing, apartheid, house demolitions, settlement building, administrative detention of children, Gaza blockade, use of phosphorous bombs, flooding and contamination of agricultural land, raiding Al-Aqsa Mosque in the holy month of Ramadan, torching trees and agricultural crops and bombarding residential apartment blocks in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what the odds are that bookies are placing on this possibility, but I would strongly suggest that Israel is preparing a war against Iran, to attempt to prevent it from offering military help to the Palestinians, in very short order; I think this is a matter of when,not if.

US Army Reveals Range Of New Hypersonic Weapon

The US Army has revealed the official range of its hypersonic boost-glide missile, otherwise known as the Long Range Hypersonic Weapon, or LRHW.

The Long Range Hypersonic Weapon provides a capability at a distance greater than 2,775 km (1,727 miles)," an Army spokesperson said, according to Breaking Defense. This means the hypersonic missile could be stationed in Guam and surgically bombard the Chinese if they invade Taiwan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously question that more weapons are going to, in the long run, make the US more safe; what we need is clear, intelligent foreign policy which works consistently to prevent wars from happening in the first place.

Hamas Fires Iranian-Made Cruise Missiles for First Time, Five Israelis Killed

This places the latest escalation in violence in an entirely different context. No longer are we “merely” talking about Israel incitement against Israeli Palestinians over restrictions on access to their holy site, Haram al Sharif. Instead, Hamas has taken up the cause, broadening the conflict, possibly at the behest of Iran. The latter has many scores to settle with the Israelis: this includes key Israeli communication intercepts which permitted the US to locate and murder Qassem Soleimani; and even the assassination of the founder of the Iranian nuclear program, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

Iran has been itching for a fight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Or, is it possible that members of Mossad, posing as Hamas, are using Israeli reverse-engineered missiles which look, and behave indentically to their Iranian counterparts, to be able to make the claim that they were Iranian, giving Israel the "alleged justification" for opening a war on a second front?

Is it Iran who really wants a war with Israel?!? Israeli government officials have been screaming forever, that the current form of the Iranian government needs to be taken out, and that Iran is an "existential threat" to Israel.

This article came out last Thursday; one wonders if internal/external Israeli poling have given Netanyahu's government the "traction", both domestically and internationally, it feels it needs to open a second front on this war agaisnt Gaza, this time against Iran.

Chinese Military Discussed Weaponizing COVID In 2015 'To Cause Enemy's Medical System To Collapse'

In 2015, Chinese military scientists discussed how to weaponze SARS coronaviruses, five years before the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in Wuhan, China - where CCP scientists were collaborating with a US-funded NGO on so-called 'gain of function' research to make bat coronaviruses infect humans more easily.

In a 263-page document, written by People's Liberation Army scientists and senior Chinese public health officials and obtained by the US State Department during its investigation into the origins of COVID-19, PLA scientists note how a sudden surge of patients requiring hospitalization during a bioweapon attack "could cause the enemy’s medical system to collapse," according to The Weekend Australian (a subsidiary of News Corp).

It suggests that SARS coronaviruses could herald a "new era of genetic weapons," and noted that they can be "artificially manipulated into an emerging human ­disease virus, then weaponized and unleashed in a way never seen before."

Report: Chinese Military Discussed Weaponizing Coronavirus Five Years Ago before Outbreak — While Dr. Fauci Was Funding Their Wuhan Facilities

Back in September 2020, Col. Lawrence Sellin (ret.) reported at The Gateway Pundit that there is unequivocal evidence Chinese military was involved in the creation of the Chinese coronavirus.

Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who investigated the origin of the COVID-19 virus during the initial outbreak in Wuhan China as a medical researcher in Hong Kong, has now provided unequivocal evidence that the virus was not of natural origin.

In the article, “Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route,” Dr. Yan and her colleagues have offered a detailed description of how the virus was synthesized in laboratories controlled by China’s military.

In March 2021, Joe Hoft at The Gateway Pundit reported that there was more evidence that suggests the China coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan likely came from a bioweapon accident.

How Washington Lost the Ultimate Drug War

Originally posted at TomDispatch.

Shouldn’t we be amazed? After all, for almost 20 years, the U.S. military has been supporting, equipping, training, and building up the Afghan military to the tune of more than $70 billion. The result: a corrupt mess of a force likely to prove incapable of successfully defending the U.S.-backed Afghan state from the Taliban once our troops are gone — that is, by this September 11th.

Recently, three New York Times reporters interviewed Afghan officials and military and police figures across the country and concluded that Washington had

As NATO Summit Approaches: Will Biden Keep US Nuclear Weapons in Turkey?

A piece was published in Turkey’s Hürriyet on May 5 by its editor-in-chief Sedat Ergin analyzing the prospects of the Biden administration removing American nuclear bombs from Turkey.

It has been estimated that the Pentagon maintains 50 B61 tactical nuclear weapons at the Incirlik Air Base in the country among an estimated 350 of those kept in Europe under the auspices of a NATO nuclear sharing or burden sharing arrangement. Both expressions are used. The other 300 bombs are reputed to be in Belgium, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. Those in Turkey have the advantage of being closer to Russia and the Middle East. The Incirlik Air Base, in Adana, is not far from Turkey’s border with Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Biden's handlers have any horse-sense whatsoever, they will get these weapons OUT of Turkey, just as quickly as humanly/diplomatically possible.

Russia announces three tests of Putin's 'invincible' new hypersonic 'Satan 2' super nuke capable of wiping out an area the size of England and Wales

Russia is to carry out three tests of its new deadly hypersonic 'Satan-2' intercontinental ballistic missile this year, it was announced today.

The 208-ton weapon, officially called RS-28 Sarmat, is the biggest beast in Vladimir Putin's modernised nuclear arsenal, and is due to go into service in 2022.

'Three launches of the Sarmat ICBM will be carried out as part of flight development tests in 2021,' a defence source told TASS state news agency.

The launches are expected to be from an underground silo at Plesetsk space centre in northwestern Russia hitting targets in Kamchatka on the country's Pacific coast.

Video: NATO always has been, remains and will continue to be a nuclear alliance

NATO has been a nuclear alliance since the U.S. first provided nuclear weapons to the bloc in 1953. It is the only nuclear alliance in history with the U.S., Britain and France as nuclear powers.

One billion people are under NATO’s nuclear umbrella.

“Competitors and potential adversaries” NATO maintains nuclear option against: Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

NATO maintains the credibility and effectiveness of its nuclear infrastructure and forces.

As long as nuclear weapons exist NATO will remain a nuclear alliance.

New Chinese Submarine Armed With Missiles Capable of Covering Entire US, Reports Say

China's newly commissioned nuclear-powered submarine, dubbed the Type 094A, is equipped with ballistic missiles capable of hitting targets at a distance of 10,000 kilometres (6,200 miles) — the most powerful in the country, the South China Morning Post reported, citing a military source.

"The Type 094A is an upgraded version of the Type 094 that overcame one of the key problems – noise – by improving hydrokinetic and turbulent systems, allowing it to carry the more powerful JL-3", the source was quoted as saying on Sunday.

Before the upgrade, the submarine was capable of firing the inferior JL-2 that could only hit the northeast United States, the source said, noting that currently, it is able to cover the whole American continent.

China’s new nuclear submarine missiles expand range in US: analysts

China’s newly commissioned nuclear-powered submarine is armed with the country’s most powerful submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) capable of hitting the US mainland, according to a military source and analysts.

The Type 094A, or Jin-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN), was presented last Friday as part of the celebration to mark the 72nd anniversary of the PLA Navy. It was capable of firing the JL-3, or Julang (Big Wave) SLBM with a range over 10,000km (6,200 miles), a source close to the navy said.

“The Type 094A is an upgraded version of the Type 094 that overcame one of the key problems – noise – by improving hydrokinetic and turbulent systems, allowing it to carry the more powerful JL-3,” said the source, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.

“Before the upgrade, the submarine was armed with the inferior JL-2 that could only hit the northeast United States, but now it’s able to cover the whole American continent.”

US presses ahead with nuclear bids despite watchdog concerns

The US agency managing the country’s nuclear research and bomb-making has approved the conceptual design and cost range for infrastructure investments for a multibillion-dollar project to build key components for the nation’s nuclear arsenal despite concerns raised by local watchdog groups.

Announcing the decision last week, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) further declared that planning and construction could initially cost more than $4 billion as the Biden administration appears to continue with hawkish policies of preceding Trump administration in terms of manufacturing more lethal weapons.

The agency, however, did not reveal how the funds would be spent nor does it include the cost of other preparations that would be required for the New Mexico-based Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to begin producing 30 plutonium cores per year, AP reported Friday.

"Serious Matter" - Underground Nuclear Waste Tank Leaks In Washington State

April 29,2021
An underground nuclear waste storage tank in southeast Washington state is leaking radioactive waste into the ground, according to a Washington state Department of Ecology press release.(Link: https://ecology.wa.gov/About-us/Get-to-know-us/News/2021/Ecology-track...)

The 75-year-old tank, called B-109, at Hanford Nuclear Reservation is estimated to be leaking 3.5 gallons per day, or approximately 1,300 gallons per year of radioactive material. The tank holds around 123,000 gallons of radioactive waste dating back to when atomic bombs were being built throughout the Manhattan Project.

The Hanford Nuclear Reservation is a decommissioned nuclear production facility operated by the federal government on the Columbia River in Benton County. The facility is about a four-hour drive east of Portland.

Did a black bear in Duluth nearly start a nuclear war? A book by a Stanford professor using declassified Air Force documents appears to bolster much of the legend.

It’s one of those stories that sounds too far-fetched to be true — that a bear outside the fence at the Duluth Air Force Base nearly triggered World War III and a possible nuclear holocaust.

But in recent years more accounts of the incident have surfaced that the legend appears to be true. Or at least much of it.

In October 1962, at the height of the Cold War between the U.S. and Soviet Union, American spy planes spotted Soviet nuclear missiles being installed in Cuba. Tensions mounted as both sides inched closer to war. On Oct. 22, all U.S. armed forces were placed on DEFCON 3, halfway to actual war, with President John F. Kennedy under pressure from his military commanders to strike first. The Cuban Missile Crisis had begun.

Here’s where the Duluth bear comes in:

Prions: the danger of biochemical weapons

The knowledge of biotechnology increases the risk of using biochemical weapons for mass destruction. Prions are unprecedented infectious pathogens that cause a group of fatal neurodegenerative diseases by a novel mechanism. They are transmissible particles that are devoid of nucleic acid. Due to their singular characteristics, Prions emerge as potential danger since they can be used in the development of such weapons. Prions cause fatal infectious diseases, and to date there is no therapeutic or prophylactic approach against these diseases. Furthermore, Prions are resistant to food-preparation treatments such as high heat and can find their way from the digestive system into the nervous system; recombinant Prions are infectious either bound to soil particles or in aerosols. Therefore, lethal Prions can be developed by malicious researchers who could use it to attack political enemies since such weapons cause diseases that could be above suspicion.

Iran-Israel Tensions: The Threat of Nuclear Disaster Looms Large

Israel had a near-miss of potentially catastrophic proportions on Thursday. As it has done hundreds of times in the past decade, the Israeli air force attacked Iranian bases inside Syria. In response, Syrian forces fired anti-aircraft missiles of a rather primitive Soviet model, one of which overflew its target and landed some 30 kilometres from Israel’s Dimona nuclear reactor. Israel said recently that it was bolstering its defences around Dimona for just such an eventuality.

Although an Iranian general taunted Israel, implying that Iran had some responsibility for the attack, that doesn’t appear to be the case. But the missile landing inside Israel does show that if Iran wanted to attack Dimona, it has the capacity. And despite Israel’s best efforts, an Iranian missile could hit its target.

The Nuclear Bomb Is Ready: In Italy Soon. The B61-12 has a Nuclear Warhead with 4 “Selectable Power Options”

A video was released on November 23 2020 by Sandia National Laboratories that shows a US F-35A fighter flying at supersonic speed 3000 meters above sea level, launching a B61-12 nuclear bomb (non-nuclear warhead equipped). The bomb did not fall vertically but glided until the tail section rocket ignition gave a rotational motion and the B61-12 (satellite-guided system) headed for the target and hit 42 seconds after launch. The test was carried out on August 25 at the Tonopah shooting range in the Nevada desert.

An official statement confirmed its full success: it was a real nuclear attack, proof that the fighter carried out at supersonic speed and in stealth attitude (with nuclear bombs placed in its internal hold) has the capability to penetrate through enemy defenses.

I don’t know why the warmongers in the Biden administration have decided that it is a good idea to provoke Russia and China simultaneously.  They are not intimidated by us, and they are not going to back down as a result of our threats. -- Foreign policy takes a great deal of finesse, but unfortunately the guy in the White House is a hothead in an advanced state of cognitive decline, and he is surrounded by an all-star team of warmongers.

The Endless War With Russia

Of course, there is the madness of it all. Why is the American empire trying to start a war with Russia? One reason is money, of course. The usual suspects would like to raid Russia for natural resources. The parasitic financial system of the West is running out of domestic capital to burn, so Russia is seen as a new opportunity for plunder. There is also the grudge they have with Putin, who put an end to the looting. No one holds a grudge like the people running the American financial system.

US Strategic Command Chief Calls for Nuclear Upgrade Aimed at China and Russia

On April 20 Admiral Charles Richard, commander of U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM), appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee alongside his colleague General James Dickinson, commander of U.S. Space Command SPACECOM), in both open and closed hearings.

Richard described his command, which consists of 150,000 service members from all branches of the armed forces, as a “global warfighting command.” The ultimate global warfighting command as it is in charge of all U.S. nuclear weapons and their delivery systems.

His sales pitch to the Senate committee, as that of other top commanders appearing lately before the Senate and the House Armed Services Committees, is to secure funding for the expansion and upgrading of military programs and weapons. The weapons he’s promoting are capable of ending life on earth if employed broadly.

Caitlin Johnstone: The rising threat of nuclear war is the most urgent matter in the world

There is no more urgent matter on earth than the looming possibility that everyone might die in a nuclear war. It’s madness that we’re not talking about it all the time.

US Strategic Command, the branch of the US military responsible for America’s nuclear arsenal, tweeted the following on Tuesday:

“The spectrum of conflict today is neither linear nor predictable. We must account for the possibility of conflict leading to conditions which could very rapidly drive an adversary to consider nuclear use as their least bad option.”

The statement, which STRATCOM called a “preview” of the Posture Statement it submits to the US Congress every year, was a bit intense for Twitter and sparked a lot of alarmed responses. This alarm was due not to any inaccuracy in STRATCOM’s frank statement, but due to the bizarre fact that our world’s increasing risk of nuclear war barely features in mainstream discourse.

How To Avoid WWIII

When President Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin and invited him for a summit, I felt a relief almost like back in 1962 when I heard on the news that John Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev had made a deal to resolve the Cuban missile crisis and avoid nuclear war.

When the gentleman invites someone for a serious business talk, especially in the search of peace, he does not start with insults, threats and sanctions, but as we see in this case he does what obviously puts the probability of this meeting in huge doubt.

So, it is too early to celebrate, and I agree with Sen. Sam Nunn, who came up with the expression “sleepwalking into nuclear a catastrophe,” when describing the state of U.S.-Russian relations. Many other foreign policy experts began using this term, and some supplemented it with the word “cyber” next to nuclear, especially after Mr. Biden directly threatened Moscow with the use of this relatively new weapon.

Every Dollar of Aid to Israel Breaks This U.S. Law

This fiscal year alone, the U.S. government will redistribute over $3.8 billion in American wealth to the government of Israel—violating federal law every step of the way.

While having amassed upwards of 200 nuclear warheads, Israel is not a member of the the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT)—unlike every other state on Earth other than North Korea, India, Pakistan and South Sudan.

That makes U.S. aid to Israel illegal under the Symington Amendment of 1976, which bars economic and military assistance to countries that acquire nuclear reprocessing technology without submitting to international safeguards and inspections. The law was reinforced by the Glenn Amendment of 1977.

STRATCOM Casually Posts Context-Free Tweet About Nuclear War Being Seen as ‘Least Bad Option’

United States Strategic Command (also known by its abbreviation – STRATCOM) is the combatant command in charge of the US nuclear arsenal, air defence, and space forces. In the event of a nuclear war, STRATCOM would be tasked with executing the launch of US nuclear missiles against the enemy.

STRATCOM has once again terrified its Twitter followers, this time by posting a late night, context-free tweet previewing its nuclear posture update.

“#USSTRATCOM Posture Review Preview: The spectrum of conflict today is neither linear nor predictable. We must account for the possibility of conflict leading to conditions which could very rapidly drive an adversary to consider nuclear use as their least bad option,” the statement, accompanied by STRATCOM’s logo – a hand in a gauntlet gripping lightning bolts and an olive branch, reads.

US bombers could go back on alert if ICBMs are curtailed, top general says

If the Defense Department is forced to get rid of its intercontinental ballistic missiles, it will have to move its bombers to alert status to pick up the slack, the head of U.S. Strategic Command said Tuesday.

The U.S. military maintains a “nuclear triad” of ICBMs, bombers and ballistic missile submarines meant to deter nuclear-armed adversaries from attacking the nation, as the United States could respond with a subsequent attack even if a portion of its nuclear arsenal was wiped out.

“The basic design criteria of the triad is that you cannot allow a failure of any one leg of the triad to prevent everything the president has ordered you to do,” said Adm. Charles Richard during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.

Missing in Action: Six of America's Nuclear Weapons Are Unaccounted For.

While this should be as scary as suggested, the good news is that in the past 50 plus years, no other nuclear weapons have been lost – at least that we know of.

The 1996 John Woo film Broken Arrow features a quite memorable line – uttered by character actor Frank Whaley – "I don't know what's scarier, losing nuclear weapons, or that it happens so often there's actually a term for it." In fact, the term "Broken Arrow" does refer to the loss of a nuclear weapon and it has happened more than once.

Between 1950 and 1980, there have been 32 documented nuclear weapon accidents that involve the unexpected accidental launching, firing, detonating, theft or loss of the weapon. To date, six U.S. nuclear weapons have been lost and shockingly never recovered. Below you will find a breakdown of the situations that lead to this shocking statistic.

February 13, 1950

The longest missing nuclear weapon hasn't been seen in 71 years, and it is unlikely it will be found anytime soon.

China Reacts After US and Japan Challenge it in Five Regions and Washington Pledges To Defend Japan With Nuclear Weapons

Yesterday U.S. President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga met at the White House to hold a joint press conference reaffirming and expanding bilateral relations between the two nations. A statement was released after the press event which has raised the ire of China.

Both the press conference and the statement addressed a multitude of issues from economic to security to environmental to cyber concerns, but what caught the attention of many, especially Chinese, observers is this sentence: “The United States restated its unwavering support for Japan’s defense under the U.S.-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security, using its full range of capabilities, including nuclear.” The treaty marks its seventieth anniversary this year, first having been signed during the height of the Cold War, as the war in Korea raged, in 1951.

Affordable Vehicles That Can Survive an EMP (there are many variables that will determine if a given vehicle will survive an EMP attack and to what extent it would survive it)

What makes the EMP unique is that this electromagnetic energy is sent in large amounts over a very short period of time.

The EMP attack is portrayed as sending modern society back to medieval times. Whether this is true or not is subject to much debate. One often discussed topic is whether a typical vehicle could survive an EMP and if so, what vehicle would have the best chance of doing so.

Conventional wisdom is that the older the vehicle, the more likely it can survive an EMP strike. This may be true in theory, but may not always be true in practice. One reason for this is that modern vehicles have some shielding against unwanted electromagnetic energy interference. For example, car engineers understand that you wouldn’t want a TV, radio, walkie-talkie, Wi-Fi or other wireless signal to interfere with your vehicle’s onboard computers.
