  • Iran may have built extension at disputed military site-UN nuclear watchdog

    08/27/2015 3:37:38 PM PDT · by Libloather · 4 replies
    Iran appears to have built an extension to part of its Parchin military site since May, the U.N. nuclear watchdog said in a report on Thursday delving into a major part of its inquiry into possible military dimensions to Tehran's past atomic activity. A resolution of the International Atomic Energy Agency's Parchin file, which includes a demand for fresh IAEA access to the site, is a symbolically important issue that could help make or break Tehran's July 14 nuclear deal with six world powers. The confidential IAEA report, obtained by Reuters, said: "Since (our) previous report (in May), at a...

    INN ^ | August 27, 2015 | By Yaakov Levi
    In an op-ed in the Washington Post, two former Obama administration officials urged for Israel to be provided with bunker-buster bombs, in order to be able to make a credible threat against Iran if that country gets too close to developing a nuclear device. Dennis Ross, a former Middle East envoy, and David Petraeus, who directed the CIA after commanding US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, wrote that the bunker-busters would be an effective "firewall" against Iranian nuclear development, especially in 15 years, when the agreement between Tehran and Western powers expires. "Now is the time for the Iranians and...

    The Pentagon will end a ban on transgender troops on May 27, according to a draft memo obtained by USA Today. Defense Secretary Ash Carter first announced in July that the Department intended to lift the ban and created a working group to study the implications over six months. In the meantime, troops could serve as openly transgender, and high-level approval is needed to discharge troops for being transgender. Repealing the ban would affect more than 12,000 troops. The memo, dated Aug. 19, also highlights some of the potential issues arising with transgender troops, such as providing leaves of absence...

The Law of War manual, updated to apply for the first time to all branches of the military, contains a vaguely worded provision that military commanders could interpret broadly, experts in military law and journalism say. Commanders could ask journalists to leave military bases or detain journalists for any number of perceived offenses. "In...

    Politico ran an article titled “The GOP’s Fantasy of a Bigger Nav [1]y” that is long on editorializing and short on facts or history.The article argues against reversing U.S. seapower’s decline. If nothing else, the article performs a useful service by encouraging a national debate as the Navy continues to shrink: little such debate has occurred about the Navy’s contraction by more than half since the Reagan administration.At stake is whether the U.S. will be required to defend itself at its coasts, and whether the international order that has existed since World War II will survive.

    The US military is drawing plans for a potential "comprehensive attack" against Iran as President Barack Obama has threatened to "act militarily" if Tehran violates the recent nuclear agreement, says a report. A possible military action would involve a wave of attacks spearheaded by the 30,000-pound bunker buster known as the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, according to two senior US military officers familiar with the planning, who spoke to USA Today on condition of anonymity. The attack would be aimed at targeting Iran's "air defenses" and its "deeply buried nuclear facilities," one officer said.

            LIFEBOAT One of the great World War II films was LIFEBOAT, about the ordeal faced by survivors of a passenger ship that was sunk by a Nazi U-Boat in the middle of the Atlantic. The film details their struggle for survival in a small lifeboat, fighting the elements, thirst and then fighting against each other. Each person has their own ideas about how to navigate the little boat: they argue about who should be in charge; and they find little things to fight over even when they run out of things to fight over.

    Given the amount of attention paid over the last year to the capabilities of the Russian military, it is worth considering how the evolving character of warfare over the next 10-20 years is likely to affect Russia’s military capabilities when compared to leading Western states. The trend toward greater automation, including the use of remote control weapons and AI-driven autonomous warfare, will increasingly put the Russian military at a disadvantage. Russia does not have the technology to match Western automated systems and lacks the capabilities to develop such systems on its own in the foreseeable future. Russia’s defense industry is...

Perceptions about "whether or not women are capable — physically, mentally or otherwise — those are now broken down," an ex-Obama administration official, whose claim to fame is having piloted military cargo aircraft, told one newspaper. "What's left here now would be the barriers about our social perceptions." Gee, that was easy! At least, if your goal is to feminize the military.

    Over the past two years, the belligerence between Russia and NATO has grown to alarming levels. Between the Western backed color revolution in Ukraine, Russian aircraft violating NATO airspace, sanctions, and the provocative training exercises that both sides have been conducted on a routine basis, it’s abundantly clear that these nations are seriously considering the possibility of war. But if such a war comes to pass, will the US Military be up to the task of fighting the Russians? The Pentagon doesn’t seem to think so. Earlier this week, two officials from the Department of Defense approached The Daily Beast,...

    Zero Hedge ^ | 8/14/15 | Tyler Durden
    Though transparency was a cause he championed when campaigning for the presidency, President Obama has largely avoided making certain defense costs known to the public. However, when it comes to military appropriations for government spy agencies, we know from Freedom of Information Act requests that the so-called “black budget” is an increasingly massive expenditure subsidized by American taxpayers. The CIA and and NSA alone garnered $52.6 billion in funding in 2013 while the Department of Defense black ops budget for secret military projects exceeds this number. It is estimated to be $58.7 billion for the fiscal year 2015. What is...

    It does not bode well that an Obama administration that assures us that the nuclear deal with Iran will not be violated by the mullahs is clearly looking the other way as Iran’s ally Russia blatantly violates the 1987 Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty signed with the former Soviet Union. The Obama White House is sitting on a Pentagon risk assessment report completed last month that states “that the breach involved a new missile that violates the limits set by the treaty. The treaty bans holding, producing, or flight-testing ground-launched ballistic or cruise missiles with ranges of between 310 miles...

    FOIA Request ^ | Aug 13, 2015 | Joseph Tully
    Many local police and sheriff departments in California have requested armored military surplus vehicles from the Pentagon. The militarization of police is dangerous for society. It perpetuates an “Us” versus “Them” mentality; of both sides being under siege by the other. This becomes absurd when military tanks are requested by local law enforcement for use in otherwise tranquil suburban and rural counties. Full article here.

    WICHITA, Kan. (August 12, 2015) — Convicted national security leaker Chelsea Manning could be placed in solitary confinement indefinitely for allegedly violating prison rules by having a copy of Vanity Fair with Caitlyn Jenner on the cover and an expired tube of toothpaste, among other things, her lawyer said Wednesday. The former intelligence analyst, formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of espionage and other offenses for sending more than 700,000 classified documents while working in Iraq. She is serving a 35-year sentence at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, for leaking reams of war logs, diplomatic cables...

    A group calling itself the Islamic State hacking division has published the details of 1,400 mostly US military and government personnel, urging supporters to attack those listed. The spreadsheet, published online on Wednesday, exposes names, email addresses, phone numbers and passwords. Those listed include members of the marine corps, Nasa, the state department, air force and FBI. Supporters of Isis on Twitter seized on the breach, posting personal details of soldiers and government staffers and encouraging lone wolves to “act and kill”. A person claiming to speak for the group told the Guardian the information was obtained from military and...
