After last weekend's significant escalation in Gaza involving Israeli airstrikes on 40 targets, which reportedly killed two teens and wounded over a dozen others, and over 30 rockets launched by Hamas toward southern Israel, all signs are currently pointing toward a broader outbreak of fighting as in new comments the Israeli defense minister is preparing the public for "a large and painful military operation" to come. Israeli officials and media have broadly referred to this latest flare-up o ...
The Pentagon says it will provide $200 million in additional training, equipment and advisory assistance to Ukraine's military. The money is meant to aid various aspects of Ukraine's military, including the command and control of forces, secure communications and medical treatment.

The new assistance comes amid efforts by the Ukraine government to make its ar ...

Part 1 is available here.  Part 2: The Myth of US 'Inaction' in Syria, by William Van Wagenen via The Libertarian Institute Member of the US-backed FSA, Aleppo, Syria. Image source: Wiki Comm ...
On Monday, President Trump sparked a liberal media meltdown and a vicious circle of virtue-signaling among every opinionated neocon and military-industrial complex-hanger-onner demanding an end to 'the end of cold war 2.0' and urging Trump to condemn 'thuggish' Putin and throw some nukes his way. But, as Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, the awkward and uncomfortable nature of the press conference after the summit suggests that both men are not in frequent contact, despite allegations that Put ...
Authored by Tom Streithorst via The American Conservative, It's become obsolete, the days of conquest are behind us, yet the military-industrial complex grinds on all the same. America spends more on its military than all its enemies put together yet it still can’t win wars. Failed adventures in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan have drained America’s power and diminished its prestige. The bloated Pentagon budget actually makes us weaker. Here’s the weird bit: nobody seems to care. If ...
Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com, The Federal Emergency Management Agency has admitted they made deadly mistakes in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

FEMA’s after-action report details how the agency’s warehouse on the island of Puerto Rico was nearly empty due to relief efforts from Hurricane Irma when Maria made landfall las ...
Chinese shipbuilders are constructing eight new submarines to protect its ally Pakistan with an aim to counter India. Currently, Pakistan’s Navy has ten subs, which suggests their submarine fleet could expand by 80 percent upon delivery, expected in the mid to late 2020s. Relations between both countries are incredibly complex, as the Kashmir conflict and the numerous military disputes on the Line of Control (LoC) have intensified in recent years. According to unnamed sources, as quoted per Z ...

During a press conference last month, President Donald Trump ordered the Pentagon to “immediately” establish a “space force” as an independent service branch. As we have highlighted before, the Pentagon is preparing for decades of hybrid wars across multiple domains - space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime - against Russia and China in the 2025-2040 timeframe. According to an unnamed Russian defense industry source, as quoted by Sputnik News, Russia is developing a new electronic warfare airc ...
Since formally launching in 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been riddled with multiple unforeseen problems of a magnitude equaling the hugely ambitious infrastructural project spanning a continent and affecting 4.4 billion people, which will involve a total investment from Beijing that could surpass a trillion dollars. Foremost among those problems has been security as China has brokered multi-billion dollar projects in less than stable political enviro ...
