NATO Steps Up Hostilities over Ukraine (II)

The US military is working with the State Department and NATO allies to provide support to Ukraine. Evelyn N. Farkas, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on May 6, «we will use all available tools to provide meaningful cost-effective support to Ukraine’s security institutions». DOD officials also continue to engage with their Ukrainian counterparts, Farkas said, noting that a high-level US-Ukraine meeting is scheduled next month. The United States is also taking steps to support non-NATO partners – such as Moldova and Georgia, she said...

‘Secret’ military bases in the Western Hemisphere

In November 2013, the National Assembly of Nicaragua ratified the government’s decision allowing Russian military units, ships and aircraft to visit the republic in the first half of 2014. Their crews have also been given permission to take part in the professional training of Nicaraguan military personnel and to share with them their expertise... Russia’s Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu recently announced plans to increase the number of bases abroad. He also mentioned that talks were being held with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Singapore and the Seychelles...

NATO Intensifies Activities to Counter Russia

NATO is calculating the moves to intensify the diplomatic pressure and give teeth to verbal threats as it is preparing to provoke further escalation of relations with Russia. Some aspects get little attention or kept below the public radar screen among the whirlpool of events related to Crimea and Ukraine... According to reports, an unidentified well placed Western official said, «NATO is going to have to do a serious rethink about what Article 5 really means». He added, «Western nations have minimized the prospect of having to reinforce our Eastern allies. At a stroke, all that has changed»...

Adding DCS to US Intelligence Effort – Slam Dunk Thing

John Bennet, senior сongressional reporter at Defense News, a well-known and widely respected expert, says in his brilliant piece Analysis: Defense Clandestine Service Is Here To Stay that the US Defense Clandestine Service (DCS) is a done deal... The plan fits in with the Obama administration’s affinity for espionage and covert action over conventional force. Evidently Washington is applying efforts to enhance intelligence efficiency in view of security failures, especially in the Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and other places... As has become widely known thanks to Edward Snowden’s revelations, the NSA – another military agency under the jurisdiction of DOD - acts beyond the scrutiny of Congress and violates human rights, domestic and international law at home and abroad, so there is a big chance the military intelligence will do the same now...

Kazakhstan Biological Laboratory: What Does Pentagon Need it For?

The US Department of Defense (DOD) is building an extremely expensive dual purpose biological laboratory in Kazakhstan. These kinds of facilities are built by the Pentagon along the Russian border creating a potential threat for the Russian Federation and the states of Central Asia... The program is overseen by Richard Lugar, the Senator who is known to have close ties to military establishment. He had dealt with dismantling former Soviet nuclear facilities in Kazakhstan and other states of CIS switching later to tackling the issue of biological weapons, in particular in Ukraine and Georgia (the latter had no biological weapons in the times of the Soviet Union, but the laboratory named after Richard Lugar has been built there in our days)...

From Bahrain to Ukraine: Hail the Western Salesmen of Subversion and Deception

...The protests in Kiev have evidently been driven by a determined minority, using violent and organized subversion, and calling for the overthrow of the elected authorities.  This is not the exercise of international human rights, as in Bahrain; in the case of the Ukraine, it is a call to sedition. Furthermore, the agitating groups in the Ukraine, such as the Fatherland Party and the neo-fascist Freedom Party, are known to have well-established logistical links to foreign agencies that are committed to fomenting regime change in targeted nations. These agencies include the American CIA and the benign-sounding National Endowment for Democracy. Certainly, the methodical tactics of disruption deployed recently against government buildings in Kiev strongly imply a covert military input...

The Subtext of the Stalled Afghan-US Treaty: Will the US Trade Karzai for the Taliban?

2013 is almost over and the US has still not managed to get NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai to sign the Pentagon’s bilateral security agreement. The agreement is vital strategic importance for the US and NATO in respect to having a position amidst the main players in Eurasia. The United States has set December 2014 as its so-called military withdrawal date from NATO-manned Central Asian country. Despite the claims of the US, the Pentagon wants to keep a figure of 20,000 or more military personnel in Afghanistan, retain at least nine bases, and to use Afghan airspace and territory for Pentagon operations in Central Asia and beyond...

Asia Pivot Declared, US Army Eyes Africa

U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Africa in June-July was widely seen as evidence of the White House's broader foreign policy objectives which have included an expansion of U.S. military operations across Africa. With the forces leaving Afghanistan, the Army is looking for new missions around the world. « As we reduce the rotational requirement to combat areas, we can use these forces to great effect in Africa », Gen. David M. Rodriguez, the head of the Africa Command, told Congress this year…

US Announces «Significant Changes» for Military Policy (II)

In April 2013 the US Navy announced that it was deploying a laser weapon prototype in the Persian Gulf... On October 29 Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jet tested the Guided Bomb Unit-12 (GBU-12) Paveway II bomb launching it from its internal weapons bay while flying at around 25,000 feet... Lockheed is developing three models of the new radar-evading warplane for the U.S. military and eight countries that helped fund its development: Britain, Canada, Turkey, Italy, Norway, Australia, Denmark, the Netherlands. Israel and Japan. Military action against Syria may have been put on hold, at least for now. But US military commanders often see conflicts as opportunities to use recently developed technology...

Ferguson: No Justice in the American Police State

There are reports that American police kill 500 or more Americans every year... The founding fathers warned against allowing US military forces to be deployed against the American people, and the Posse Comitatus Act prevents the use of military forces against civilians.  These restrictions designed to protect liberty have been subverted by the George W. Bush and Obama regimes. Today Americans have no more protection against state violence than Germans had under National Socialism. Far from being a «light unto the world», America is descending into cold hard tyranny. Who will liberate us?
