The latest deterioration of a fading trans-Pacific alliance

Some 70,000 protesters rallied in Okinawa, Japan, on August 11 against the planned relocation of a United States military base. Rather than see U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma moved from a heavily populated part of the island to the remote Henoko Bay, the protesters want it to be removed from the island entirely.

FM Lavrov: Russia In Possession of US War Plans

 

Today on TruNews, we discuss the shocking statement made to Russian children by their senior diplomat, that the Kremlin is aware of Western military schemes against their nation, and no matter what, security and sovereignty will be duly protected. We also detail the predictable campaign currently underway to start Israel’s long anticipated war with Iran, and how an Arab-NATO, backed by U.S. troops, is being sold as the new front man for Jerusalem’s foreign policy. Air date: 7/30/18. Continue reading

Russian Electronic Warfare Against US Troops In Syria Enters Dangerous Phase: Report

Does the USS Donald Cook incident from 2014 ring a bell to anyone?

 

 

“All of a sudden your communications won’t work, or you can’t call for fire, or you can’t warn of incoming fires because your radars have been jammed and they can’t detect anything” — a retired Army colonel who specializes in electronic warfare told Foreign Policy.

A new report details the Pentagon’s growing alarm at increased instances of Russian electronic jamming attacks on American troop positions in Syria, which number according to public Pentagon statements at 2000 or more, located on and near a dozen or more “secret” bases mostly in Syria’s northeast and embedded among the mostly Kurdish US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

Turkey Warns US Troops In Northern Syria May Be Targeted By Its Army

 

Last week we reported  that days Turkey valiantly demanded that US forces vacate military bases in the Syrian district of Manbij, the US predictably refused, and on Monday a top American general said that US troops will not pull out from the northern Syrian city of Manbij, rebuffing Ankara demands to withdraw from the city and risking a potential confrontation between the two NATO allies.

One week later, in the latest dramatic escalation between the two NATO members, Turkey’s Deputy PM has warned that US troops fighting alongside Syrian Kurdish militias in the same uniform may be targeted by the Turkish army due to the difficulty of distinguishing them in the heat of battle, effectively stating that US troops in northern Syria are now “fair game” in the ongoing deadly conflict.

Nearly 1,000 US Troops in Syria Are Currently Under Attack by Russians

 

(ANTIMEDIA Op-ed)  According to the Guardian, an estimated 900 U.S. troops are embedded with Syrian opposition forces that are currently within strike range of the Russian military. Over the weekend, the U.S. military claimed Russian jets had struck Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) positions in Deir ez-Zor east of the Euphrates River. The attack allegedly wounded six of these SDF fighters, but no American personnel were harmed. Continue reading

Reports are circulating that  yesterday the US army made some very unusual movement at the Syrian-Jordanian border, north of Jordan’s Al-Mafraq Governorate.

Local sources said that about 20 US Army armoured vehicles (including battle tanks and artillery pieces) carried on trucks were spotted in Al-Mafraq. US troops were allegedly accompanied with the Jordanian Army’s 3rd Division. Continue reading

Trump to Mexico: Take care of ‘bad hombres’ or US might

As you recall, many times it was warned that poison pills will be left behind for President Trump (see also HERE). Now they are starting to show up and hit hard.

The latest poison pill is a series of leaked calls. The leaked calls shows you that the White House communication lines are likely tapped. This is absolute sabotage and treason. If the communication lines are indeed tapped, Trump will indeed eventually find out. Don’t be surprised if he begins to operate from Trump Tower in New York if that’s the case.

This goes to show you how deeply entrenched the ‘Deep State’ is and how they’re waging war against the nation. In another leaked call, we find out Trump’s conversation with Australia’s PM Malcolm Turnbull didn’t go so well. Apparently PM Turnbull wanted to go low and play cheap activism politics with Trump. That it didn’t go so well is only a small aspect of what’s important to point out.

What’s important to know out of this is that it’s literally Trump versus the world. The world has leaders planted from nation to nation who are all globalists. They want the world to be further integrated and Trump does not. Trump does not fit the plan. Trump does not play their game. According to them, Trump must go. What’s now see being implemented are world leaders stepping in in defiance because it gains headlines in the already-one-sided media, which then amplifies the exaggeration 100-fold and gets the soft minded citizens riled up in defiance as well.

On a side note, these leaked phone calls could also be another hoax, half-truth manipulation or a ploy on the media’s part. They are ruthless enough to not care, so long as the story gets put out first and the facts later when people had it sink into their minds.

For the record, here’s a list of nations that have (or are now) built a wall out of security:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump warned in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart that he was ready to send U.S. troops to stop “bad hombres down there” unless the Mexican military does more to control them, according to an excerpt of a transcript of the conversation obtained by The Associated Press.

The excerpt of the call did not detail who exactly Trump considered “bad hombres,” nor did it make clear the tone and context of the remark, made in a Friday morning phone call between the leaders. It also did not contain Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s response. Mexico denies that Trump’s remarks were threatening. Continue reading

North Korea May Provide It’s Own Election Day Bombshell

  • Military officials suggest that the North may attempt another launch one of its Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM), a potential threat to U.S. forces in Guam.
  • The American strategic assets stationed in Guam could be used to back up U.S. and South Korean troops on the Korean peninsula were the North to attack its southern neighbor.
  • South Korea’s military noted that Pyongyang may want to present a show of force to demonstrate that it will continue its nuclear and ballistic missile programs despite pressure from the U.S. and the international community. Continue reading

Something big is underway on all fronts: “Within the next few weeks the future of the united states will be decided”

Congress gave the green light to send weapons and munitions to Ukraine; the “holdup” is due to Obama not wanting to jeopardize the election of Hillary Clinton

As of this writing, the increased U.S. troop presence in Eastern Europe includes a battalion-sized element of American troops being emplaced in the Suwalki Gap, Polish territory that borders Lithuania in a 60-mile stretch of corridor.  The Russian Defense Ministry announced that 600 Russian and Belarussian airborne troops conducted training exercises in Brest, on the Belorussian-Polish border only a few miles from where the U.S. forces are deploying in Poland.  This on the heels of Britain deploying 800 men, tanks, and jets to Estonia, along with pledges of Challenger 2 tanks, APC’s (Armored Personnel Carriers), and drones.  Two companies of French and Danish Soldiers will join the British in the deployment to Estonia.

Nato countries begin largest war game in eastern Europe since cold war

Ten-day military exercise, Anaconda-2016, will involve 31,000 troops and thousands of vehicles from 24 countries

The largest war game in eastern Europe since the end of the cold war has started in Poland, as Nato and partner countries seek to mount a display of strength as a response to concerns about Russia’s assertiveness and actions.

The 10-day military exercise, involving 31,000 troops and thousands of vehicles from 24 countries, has been welcomed among Nato’s allies in the region, though defence experts warn that any mishap could prompt an offensive reaction from Moscow. Continue reading

China won’t allow chaos or war on Korean peninsula: Xi

BEIJING (Reuters) – China will not allow chaos and war to break out on the Korean peninsula, which would be to no one’s advantage, Chinese President Xi Jinping told a group of Asian foreign ministers on Thursday.

North Korea’s drive to develop a nuclear weapons capability, in defiance of U.N. resolutions, has angered China and raised tension in the region. Continue reading

Exclusive: 21 Generals Lead ISIS War the U.S. Denies Fighting

There are only 5,000 U.S. troops in Iraq—about what a colonel usually commands. But for this ISIS war, as many as 21 generals have been deployed. Why?

In the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State, the U.S. military is notably short on soldiers, but apparently not on generals.

There are at least 12 U.S. generals in Iraq, a stunningly high number for a war that, if you believe the White House talking points, doesn’t involve American troops in combat. And that number is, if anything, a conservative estimate, not taking into account the flag officers running the U.S. air war, the admirals helping wage the war from the sea, or their superiors back at the Pentagon.

U.S. General: We Have ‘Hugged’ the Russian Bear for Too Long

U.S. commander in Europe calls for more forces and equipment to deter ‘a revanchist Russia’

The commander of U.S. forces in Europe says the United States has accommodated Russia for too long amid aggressive military actions by Moscow and a shrinking U.S. footprint in the region.

U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, who is also NATO’s supreme allied commander in Europe, said that the United States had “hugged the bear” in Europe—a reference to Russia—after the fall of the Soviet Union in an attempt to promote cooperation with Moscow, the Department of Defense’s news service reported on Tuesday. Breedlove recently met with U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the headquarters of U.S. European Command in Stuttgart, Germany.

Want to move your tank battalion to take on a threat? NATO’s got a form for that.

How unprepared is NATO in Europe for confrontation? Unprepared enough to where the refugees can move units quicker…

If you’ve been following Global Geopolitics long enough, you might have heard the term ‘unintelligent community’ mentioned quite often. That’s because it’s ill-equipped and caught ‘surprised’ with anything its adversaries do. The same can now be applied to the purged and redirected military under Obama. The U.S. military is now becoming a third-rate army by an administration who is determined that America will no longer remain a global superpower. America is in full retreat and the Sino-Soviet axis is filling in the gap.

And if you didn’t know the last American tanks from European soil were removed in 2013, now you do. Russia is determined to destroy NATO while NATO is determined to be unprepared.

 

Increasing NATO’s speed has become Lieutenant General Ben Hodges’ mantra.

Every time that Russia holds snap exercises moving tens of thousands of men across vast distances, the United States is surprised, the commander of the U.S. Army in Europe said in an interview last week. By contrast, the 28 countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are so tied up in red tape that it typically takes 15 days to get diplomatic clearance to move military equipment from one member state to the next. Cold War-era regulations mean Hodges still needs special permission to travel from his base in western Germany to Berlin.

“What we want is like a military Schengen zone,” the three-star U.S. general said, referring to the border-free travel regime adopted by most European Union countries. “Right now refugees can move across Europe faster than military convoys.Continue reading
