China’s Special Operation Forces (SOF) are very different from their American counterparts, wrote Dennis J. Blasko, a retired lieutenant colonel of the United States Army specializing as a Military Intelligence and Foreign Area Officer in China, in his article in Washington-based War on the Rock.
They are not established for direct action, strategic reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, civil affairs operations, counterterrorism or military information support operations, the main job description of US special forces, Blasko said. As a matter of fact, they are more similar to the 75th Ranger Regiment of the US Army. Continue reading
Specifics of the exercise scenario starting Tuesday have not been publicly released. U.S. Army Pacific officials have only described it as a humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operation requiring U.S. and China military cooperation in a fictional third country.
On Thursday, U.S. and Chinese soldiers will train in a field exercise at Bellows Air Force Base, on a Marine Corps training area on the east side of Oahu. Continue reading
Members of the PLA who will be learning weak spots and crisis procedure during a time of emergency apparently don’t throw up red flags for U.S. intelligence agencies or the military.
A previous article on this can be found here:
Aloha Hawaiians! If you see what you think are soldiers from the Communist Peoples Republic of China Army wandering about in your neck of the woods Tuesday through Thursday next week, your imagination is not playing tricks on you.
For the first time in history the U.S. Army will host the Communist Peoples Republic of China’s Army on American soil Nov. 12-14, 2013.
But don’t worry while Chinese soldiers will have boots on the ground in Hawaii, they are only really “simulating”. Continue reading
WASHINGTON – After multiple top generals described to WND what they regard as a full-scale “purge” of the U.S. military by the Obama administration, the commander of U.S. Army Garrison Japan was summarily relieved of duty and his civilian deputy reassigned, pending a “misconduct” investigation.
Nine generals and flag officers have been relieved of duty under Obama just this year – widely viewed as an extraordinary number – and several sources put the total number of senior officers purged during the five years of the Obama administration as close to 200.
In response, prominent retired generals – ranging from Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, a Fox News senior military analyst, to Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a founder of the Army’s elite Delta Force, to Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Patrick Henry Brady – have all gone on the record with WND, characterizing Obama’s actions as nothing less than an all-out attack on America’s armed forces. Continue reading
While it’s common knowledge that China is on the rise, little do people see that Germany is back on the march. Germany is the merchant of the world and engine that runs the European Union, the largest economy in the world. It has recently in the last few years, via the economic crisis, subjugated and taken the national sovereignty out of countries that are hurting the most — all in exchange for kicking the can down the road (forced bailouts) until the next opportunity (crisis) arises to extort more out of the victim. Because it can throw is economic weight around and runs the Troika, it has the authority to do so. With this growing power, Germany will likely turn the EU bloc into the next world’s superpower.
Further integration among the EU members is being pushed, whether the citizens of each nation like it or not. Meanwhile, the USA cannot be relied upon and is definitely trusted less due to the ongoing NSA scandal, which is hypocritical for Germany to scoff at being that it has cooperated with the agency since the 1960’s. The USA has also done its part in encouraging Germany to increase its role in the world. From all this, a European Army is being born for its respective upcoming United States of Europe with the Fourth Reich at the helm. As we speak, EU members are integrating their militaries with their German counterparts and there is increasing demand among prominent figures across the bloc in calling for a new military structure.
Those who think China or Russia might be the next world’s superpower(s) might be in for a shock. In the end, even with the USA suiciding itself out of existence, nobody will still trust China or Russia to lead the world. The best case scenario for the two will be a multi-polar world where power and influence are shared.
So may scoff at the idea, but today’s jokes are often tomorrow’s reality. For now, all eyes should be on Deutschland.
BERLIN/BERGEN/MUNSTER (Own report) – The Bundeswehr is preparing prospective general staff officers for the invasion of foreign countries and the repression of civil unrest. Scenarios to this effect formed the basis of an informational training exercise for the military’s future commanders that ended last week. The large-scale maneuver, which involved a total of 3,500 soldiers and 700 ground and aerial vehicles – carried out in the close vicinity of the former Nazi Bergen-Belsen concentration camp – also exercised combat against insurgents in congested urban areas. Various surveillance drones and elite units specialized in “covert operations” as well as those specialized in psychological warfare were also in action. They trained using live ammunition. According to the German military, the exercise took the “reality” of past warfare into consideration, while anticipating “foreseeable challenges of the future.”
Systematically destroyed from within, under the guise of budget cuts. America is now at the peak of the process in degredation, whereas both China and Russia are on par with capability, combat readiness and deployment, or are soon to be.
Budget cuts mean only two Army brigades are combat-ready, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said Monday.
Odierno made the admission at an Army conference, where he said thousands of soldiers might not be properly trained for deployment.
“Right now, we have in the Army two brigades that are trained. That’s it. Two,” Odierno said at the annual Association of the United States Army (AUSA) conference.
