Raqqa Destroyed to Libertate it

Eric Margolis at - 13 hours ago
[image: undefined] The so-called Islamic State organization was primarily a bogeyman encouraged by the western powers. I’ve been saying this for the last four years. I asserted, as a former soldier and war correspondent, that IS would collapse like a wet paper bag if proper western ground forces attacked their strongholds in Syria and Iraq. This week, the western powers and their local satraps finally took action and stormed the last IS stronghold at Raqqa. To no surprise, IS put up almost no resistance and ran for its miserable life. The much-dreaded IS was never more than a bun... more »

Spain To Remove Catalan Leader And Impose Direct Rule

The announcement, made after an emergency cabinet meeting, was an unexpectedly forceful attempt to stop a yearslong drive for secession in Catalonia, which staged a highly controversial independence referendum on Oct. 1, even after it was declared illegal by the Spanish governm... more »

Using some more of Robert and Rebekah Mercer's money, Steve Bannon extends his "Pay Attention to Me!" U.S. tour: Anaheim, California (CNN) Steve Bannon delivered a withering attack on George W. Bush Friday night.... "There has not been a more destructive presidency than George Bush's," Bannon said during his dinnertime address at the convention banquet of the California Republican Party.

Is John Kelly's Defense Of Gold Star Sanctity Like A 'Military Coup'

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 14 hours ago
*Masha Gessen, New Yorker*: *John Kelly and the Language of the Military Coup* Consider this nightmare scenario: a military coup. You don’t have to strain your imagination—all you have to do is watch Thursday’s White House press briefing, in which the chief of staff, John Kelly, defended President Trump’s phone call to a military widow, Myeshia Johnson. The press briefing could serve as a preview of what a military coup in this country would look like, for it was in the logic of such a coup that Kelly advanced his four arguments. *Read more* .... *WNU Editor*: I read the 4 point... more »

The Gen. Kelly controversy: the gulf is just too wide to bridge

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 14 hours ago
To set the scene, I'm sure most of my readers are aware of Gen. John Kelly's remarks to journalists on October 19th, following the controversy over President Trump's alleged remarks to the mother of an Army serviceman killed in Niger. In order to remove any possibility of misunderstanding, here's a video of every word he had to say. I *highly* recommend watching it in full, if you haven't heard or read his speech already. Speaking as a combat veteran, albeit in a different country's armed forces, I endorse what Gen. Kelly said. I've buried enough of my comrades in arms to un... more »

Catalonia, Czechia: not too happy a day in politics

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 15 hours ago
In Madrid, the Spanish government decided to say "you're fired" to the elected Catalan government and appoint a puppet government instead. Based on the parties that will be included, the puppet government is supported by 8% of the Catalan voters. Moreover, some "authorities" are threatening Catalan president Puigdemont with up to 30 years in prison for "rebellion". He's my hero. Tonight, he will make a speech. I will understand if he surrenders. Clearly, Spain doesn't belong to the European civilization and their heavy-handed approach won't make the problem go away. They can mask it... more »

Teleology: Inorganic and Organic

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 15 hours ago
In his essay, “Teleology: Inorganic and Organic,” David S. Oderberg examines the extent to which teleology can be found in the inorganic world. He argues that while there is no immanent causation in inorganic world, the non-living things follow the concept of function, which in the broadest sense is “any natural specific activity of a power or capacity of a thing." Oderberg points out that while the idea of teleology in the world of non-living things may seem bizarre, the alternative viewpoint is even more so. It is not logical, he says, to believe that “there should be full-bloode... more »

Britain's Elite 'Navy Seals' That You Never Heard of (That Hitler Feared)

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 15 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, Europe* The Special Boat Service was one of the least known special forces units of World War II. “We were to be terrorists. Our job was to terrorize the Germans,” one former member said dramatically. Another more prosaically likened it to poaching: “Creep in, set the traps, hang about, collect the spoils, and get away without being caught.” Both descriptions were equally appropriate in describing one of the least known special forces units of World War II. Although British, it owed its origin, ironically, to the Germans. They had designed a c... more »

If Russia Ever Invades the Baltics, This Is the Plan to Make It as Painful as Possible

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 15 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, Europe* Putin should read this very carefully. The Baltic states have a plan to defend themselves against Russian invasion: mobilize their societies for the struggle. Should Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania go to war, their civilian populations will play a large part in the struggle, according to two RAND Corporation researchers. However, it’s not by choice. “As small countries with little strategic depth and limited human and economic resources, they are increasingly adopting a ‘total defense’ approach to national security, which includes enabling civili... more »

How North Korea Could Start the Unthinkable: War Between America and China

Robert Farley at The National Interest - 15 hours ago
*Robert Farley* *Security, Asia* And here is how it could go down. War on the Korean Peninsula is almost too horrible to contemplate. Nuclear-armed adversaries, fighting in densely populated urban terrain, could cause humanitarian disaster on a scale that the world has never seen. But the scenario might grow even worse. The last time that the United States fought North Korea, the People’s Republic of China intervened with destructive effect. The war lasted for three years, with heavy casualties on both sides. While both China and the United States have worked hard to prevent a r... more »

Stealth War: Russia's New Su-57 vs. America's F-22 Raptor

*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, Europe* Who wins? Russia’s official designation of the PAK-FA/T-50 jet as the Sukhoi Su-57 is just another reminder that the field of fifth generation fighters is about to get more crowded. The United States, China, Russia, Japan and Korea are all working on their own fifth generation designs, but so far only three planes, the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the Chinese J-20 are operational. Increased tensions between the United States and NATO on one side and Russia on the other have people wondering: once the Su-57 does become operational... more »

Why Building 'Baby' Aircraft Carriers Would Be a Bad Idea for the U.S. Navy

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 15 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, Asia* They just can't do what the big boys can. Period. The bottom line of a new study on U.S. aircraft carriers: you can't get something for nothing. The Navy can buy smaller, cheaper carriers rather than the $13 billion Ford-class behemoths it is currently constructing, according to a new study by RAND Corporation. But smaller and cheaper means reduced capabilities, and could prevent the Navy from fighting in hostile waters or providing the air support for ground operations.

Islamic Vikings - an update

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 15 hours ago
All credit to the *Independent *for updating its readers over the much-reported claim that the Vikings wore Arabic words for 'Allah' and 'Ali' in their burial garments, thus suggesting a strong Islamic influence on Viking culture. They followed up the story with "a leading expert" in medieval Islamic art and archaeology, who has rubbished the claims saying that there's no Arabic script present at all. It's a fascinating read and, to my mind, places the Swedish researchers (and the media who reported their claims) firmly in the dock. The BBC's article on the original story was part... more »

[image: deer] This is a surprising finding and it will perhaps encourage more attention to deer husbandry and ultimately to wolf husbandry. Of course that is a problem that will not be fully mastered until we restore rural human density along with mind sharing for animal management.

This can be done with the science at hand even if it will be like herding cats. The problem is now becoming... more »

One thing poorly understood is that bat wings are way more effective than has been understood.

Yet the pterodactyl likely spends much of its time deep in the sea where it pursues fish. One of these reports essentially confirms the use of a gravity belt. This cannot be natural and it supports my conjecture that we are looking at humans with a newly developed flying rig.
