Beijing asserts Scarborough Shoal is Chinese territory

China’s plans to build up a disputed island near the Philippines could lead to a regional conflict, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress on Thursday.

Carter was asked about the strategic significance of China’s plan to add military facilities to a disputed island known as Scarborough Shoal located about 120 miles—within missile range—of Subic Bay, Philippines, where U.S. warships will be based. Continue reading

The Farmer and the Snake

A Farmer walked through his field one cold winter morning. On the ground lay a Snake, stiff and frozen with the cold. The Farmer knew how deadly the Snake could be, and yet he picked it up and put it in his bosom to warm it back to life.

The Snake soon revived, and when it had enough strength, bit the man who had been so kind to it. The bite was deadly and the Farmer felt that he must die. “Oh,” cried the Farmer with his last breath, “I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel.”

The Greatest Kindness Will Not Bind the Ungrateful. Continue reading

Iran planning ICBM tests soon after new US president takes office

As said yesterday, whoever the next U.S. President is, they will have huge challenges and likely be in over their head. This is but one of many he/she will face, and likely simultaneously from all sides.

 

According to a schedule published this week by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, the country will conduct a large-scale test of intercontinental ballistic missiles about a month after the new US president takes office on January 20, 2017. Continue reading

4 ways Iran is becoming a Persian Empire

We may be looking at the Biblically prophesied King of the South, as written in the book of Daniel.

(TRUNEWS) Has the recent lifting of oil sanctions; and their inclusion in the Eurasian Trade Zone, launched Iran toward becoming a modern resurgence of the Persian Empire?

On the Tuesday edition of TRUNEWS, guest Jim Willie mentioned that Iran — who he referred to as Persia — is the 4th leg in an emerging Eurasian Trade Zone with India, China and Russia. This new trade alliance, Willie said, is establishing a ‘New Silk Road” from the ports of Lisbon, Portugal to Vladivostok, Russia and will become the dominant economic system post-US petrodollar.

EU Conducts Military Exercises Based on Civil War Theories

Aside from the social unrest, we see a bit more evidence of further integration of EU member states.

While not wanting to predict or project too much, if it proves to be successful, we could be looking at the birth of some sort of EU-wide national guard. We already do know, however, an EU Army is being formed for a United States of Europe. It would make sense to have this at a national level under a nation called Europe, not a continent. Guess where all roads still lead to in the end: Berlin.

The original article in German will be posted below.

Für die, die Deutsch lesen kann, steht der originales Artikel ganz unten.

 

It’s coming. About 600 members of European police units and military have carried out in North Rhine-Westphalia assault exercises intended to crackdown on civil unrest in Germany and other EU countries. Continue reading

Uranium Thieves Arrested In Soviet Material Selloff

 

Georgia’s security service said on Thursday (April 28) it had detained a group of five Georgian citizens who were trying to sell $3 million worth of the radioactive materials uranium-238 and uranium-235.

Georgia’s security service did not say whether the group had a buyer for the radioactive materials. Nor did it say where the group had acquired it.

Georgia is a former member of the Soviet Union and world leaders have been concerned about the security of Soviet nuclear weapons and stockpiles since it broke up in 1991.

Top Russian Test Pilot: Russia – Not The U.S. – Is The Only Country With Successful Fifth-Generation Aircraft

When American fifth-generation fighters, the F-35 in particular, have 419 deficiencies, the Russian test pilot might actually not be spreading propaganda.

Anatoly Kvochur (Source: Migflug.com)

 

On April 11, 2016, the pro-Kremlin media outlet Pravda.ru published an interview with Anatoly Kvochur, a distinguished Russian test pilot, who started his career in the Soviet forces and is currently deputy chief of the Gromov Flight Research Institute at Zhukovsky airbase. In the interview, Kvochur states that Russia has developed successful fifth-generation fighter aircraft – as opposed to the U.S., whose F-22 and F-35 fifth-generation fighter jets should, he claims, be considered a “failure.”[1] He also asserts that Russia’s “military doctrine is purely defensive,” whereas U.S. military doctrine is “a doctrine of global domination.”

On March 2, 2016, Russian Aerospace Forces commander Viktor Bondarev announced that Russia’s sixth-generation fighter is being developed in both manned and unmanned versions.[2]

The following are excerpts from Kvochur’s interview with Pravda.ru:[3] Continue reading

Russia Finalizing Next-Gen Missiles to Deploy in North if Sweden Joins NATO

https://i0.wp.com/cdn4.img.sputniknews.com/images/102279/27/1022792765.jpg

 

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Earlier, Russia Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Russia would respond in military-technical terms on its northern borders if Sweden decides to join NATO.

“Currently the development is being finalized on a new modern generation of missiles that have not been announced. They will be impregnable to NATO weapons, including air defense systems,” Evgeny Serebrennikov told RIA Novosti.

U.S. Steel Giant Charges That Chinese Government Stole Company Secrets

U.S. Steel Corp accused the Chinese government of hacking into a company computer to steal the blueprints for new lightweight steel technology so that Beijing-based auto producers could expand their reach into America.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that U.S. Steel filed a complaint with the International Trade Commission earlier this week accusing the Xi government of working on the behalf of Chinese auto companies to swipe proprietary plans for the new steel. Continue reading

Obama strategy in South China Sea dismissed as ‘nothing but symbolic’

“We’ve reached a point now where there’s no denying the fact that China has positioned itself as a geopolitical rival to the United States,” Sen. Bob Corker, Tennessee Republican, told the Foreign Relations Committee.

“I don’t know why we’re not doing it (freedom of navigation operations) weekly or monthly,” Corker added. “I don’t think it’s any question but that China views that solely as a light-touch, symbolic effort, and I have no idea why we’re not cruising within those 12 nautical miles on a weekly basis.”

“The calculated and incremental strategy on the part of Beijing to challenge U.S. power is having real consequences for U.S. interests and international norms in the Indo-Pacific and beyond.” Continue reading

Russia And Saudi Arabia Locked In Relentless Fight Over China’s Oil Market

Russia and Saudi Arabia have been (relatively) quietly fighting for market share in China ever since oil prices started their downward spiral in mid-2014—now the battle is heating up, and teapot refineries are what could tip the balance.

Though the Saudis had historically been China’s biggest oil supplier, Russia managed to take the top spot several times during that period, thanks to the so-called teapot refineries. This has now forced the Saudis to do something they’ve never done before—target teapots on the spot market in order to regain lost market share. Continue reading

Is Donald Trump the Answer?

No matter who wins in November of 2016, the candidate will be in over his/her head. As said yesterday, America’s crisis cannot be fixed with a political solution. There is a moral vacuum that needs to be filled and neither Hillary nor Trump have addressed that. The former is the exact opposite of anything moral and just.

The wounds the Obama, Bush and Clinton administrations have created are likely fatal. Should Hillary win, the baton gets passed on and the corruption will continue on a whole new cynical level. Should Trump win, a far from perfect but an actual genuine candidate, expect the many poison pills intentionally left behind by previous administrations to take effect.

God is the solution for America, not laws, economics and foreign policy. Otherwise it’s game over and His hand of protection from America’s enemies will be lifted, if it hasn’t been already. 9/11 should’ve been a big hint, but people missed the message.

 

 

Many people are looking to this year’s United States presidential election as a huge turning point for the nation. On the Republican side, last night Donald Trump took a big step toward winning his party’s nomination in July. But is Donald Trump really the solution to America’s many problems? In many ways, his political views are very similar to politicians on the left. The Bible shows that neither party will fix the family breakdown—or prevent America from further decline. To hear more on this topic, be sure to listen to the latest Trumpet Daily Radio Show.

Russian Warplane Flies Within 50 Feet of U.S. Spy Plane in Asia

Latest aerial encounter occurred near new Russian missile sub

A Russian MiG-31 jet flew within 50 feet of a U.S. surveillance aircraft in Northeast Asia last week, Moscow’s latest aerial saber-rattling against American ships and planes, according to defense officials.

“On April 21, a U.S. Navy P-8 Maritime Patrol reconnaissance aircraft flying a routine mission in international airspace was intercepted by a MiG-31 Russian jet in the vicinity of the Kamchatka Peninsula,” Cmdr. Dave Benham, a spokesman for the Pacific Command, told the Washington Free Beacon. Continue reading
