A representative for a pro-Islamic State hacking group issued a chilling warning to members of the U.S. military and government Wednesday, promising that “very soon” followers of the organization would retaliate for overseas bombing targeting the terror organization.
Speaking to TheBlaze using smartphone messenger application Kik, a representative for the Islamic State Hacking Division said the group is constantly spying on U.S. servicemen. The organization on Tuesday published personal information purporting to belong to U.S. military and government online.
“Just like they spy on muslims, we are spying on them, watching their employees, watching their soldiers, recording their movements and taking their location information and passing it on to the soldiers of the islamic state,” the anonymous male member told TheBlaze. Continue reading
If you didn’t know, exclusive operating rights to the Panama Canal were given away in 1977 by then-President Jimmy Carter, followed by a American withdrawal in 1999 followed by full sovereignty rights being relinquished to Panama in 2000. During this time frame, rights to manage the canal were auctioned off to China in 1996 under Bill Clinton. China completely controls who goes in and who comes out.
Should war against China break out, and the PLA says war is imminent, the U.S. will be forced to go into battle against carrier killers (range = 1000+ miles) before it ever sees one PLAN vessel with only the Pacific Fleet and expect very little strategic reinforcement for quite some time. In summary, this is likely a devastating loss for the U.S..
In May, Djibouti’s president announced that China was in talks for setting a military base in the small nation in the Horn of Africa. And though Beijing has declined to confirm the reports, the news has already raised some concerns in Washington.
As a fairly stable country positioned between Yemen and Somalia, Djibouti plays an important strategic role for the US. The country additionally overlooks the Bab al-Mandeb straits, one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.
The US military’s headquarters in the region, Camp Lemonnier, is based in the country and is used for covert operations, including anti-terror, in Yemen, Somalia, and across Africa. Continue reading
A Russian publication has reported that Cyprus has agreed to allow Russia to establish air and naval bases in its territory, causing a major stir within the EU community.
The news was first reported by Lenta.ru and went viral all across Europe and beyond. If it is true, Russia would be able to stage a dagger right in the heart of EU community in the Mediterranean. Continue reading
Last week IHS Jane’s reported that satellite images from October 2014 show that China is building a heliport with 10 landing pads and wind turbines on Nanji Island, which is one of 52 islands on an archipelago that is part of Zhejiang province. Nanji Islands is only 300 km from the disputed Senkaku Islands. By contrast, Okinawa— which hosts major U.S. and Japanese military bases— are 400 km away from the disputed islands. Continue reading
China’s army has set up at least three new large aerial listening stations in coastal Fujian province to monitor radio signals from Taiwan, according to a report by Canada-based monthly Kanwa Information Center.
The magazine’s latest issue reported that the People’s Liberation Army has been increasing its snooping stations in the province, the closest to Taiwan, over the past five years. Continue reading
An eerie and well-laid out article from 2006 that warrants attention. What this article doesn’t take into account is that the USSR underwent a controlled and planned strategic collapse to dupe the West into thinking that it was going to become democratic and full of freedom, no longer a threat. As explained by Anatoliy Golitsyn, America has been sold New Lies for Old the entire time and fell for the Perestroika Deception. Slide 23 hints at it, but misses the mark. Over 92% of Golitsyn’s predictions came true, yet alarmingly received very little attention.
While the undertones of the article may seem pro-Soviet or Communist to some in an ‘America vs Russia’ framework, it remains objective in illustrating the final point(s) in principal of how the USSR panned out and how America might pan out. It doesn’t take into account
Most of the article will be posted here for documentation purposes, the remaining portions can be found on the source link.
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I am not an expert or a scholar or an activist. I am more of an eye-witness. I watched the Soviet Union collapse, and I have tried to put my observations into a concise message. I will leave it up to you to decide just how urgent a message it is.
My talk tonight is about the lack of collapse-preparedness here in the United States. I will compare it with the situation in the Soviet Union, prior to its collapse. The rhetorical device I am going to use is the “Collapse Gap” – to go along with the Nuclear Gap, and the Space Gap, and various other superpower gaps that were fashionable during the Cold War.
One shouldn’t dismiss Iran’s remarks as science fiction or some sort of hollow threat with no bite and all bark. The US Military’s logistics in the Middle East region throughout the last 5 years or so has taken a hit as nations are wanting to kick out America and side with the Sino-Soviet axis powers. To get around this, America has had to find a physical way around and has done so to a large extent, but it still prolongs the ETA of personnel — something that can be a decisive and critical factor in war. Combine this with the ‘pivot to Asia’ which has dimished the naval presence in the region and we have a recipe for disaster.
Should an all-out regional war take place, one shouldn’t expect an Iranian invasion, but an Iranian onslaught with tens of thousands of missiles pouring down on American bases — and there hasn’t been any news regarding a deterrance for this. The casualties could be in the tens of thousands, or more. The United States might in fact have the Persian empire surrounded and will likely decisively win a war against it, but Iran won’t go without leaving deep scars. The cost of war against Iran will be costly in blood, politically around the world and economically.
This would also provide justification for China and Russia, along with their allies, to drop the US Dollar and send the US back into the stone age. It’s but one of quite a few scenarious, but plausible.
