    In May 1881 US explorers approached Jeannette Island, Wrangell Island and Henrietta Island in the Arctic Ocean and claimed them for the United States. Wrangell and its 200 mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ) has billions of barrels of oil/gas reserves and hundreds of millions of pounds of fisheries. It also has a strategic military location for tracking Russian moves in Arctic. Now, Vladimir Putin has begun construction of a naval base and army base on Wrangell without so much as a peep from the State Department or President Obama. Something is tragically wrong here. The State Department has undertaken the...

    A second senior airline industry source has revealed his belief that there is some sort of conspiracy behind the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. As The Herald Sun reports, Emirates president and CEO Sir Tim Clark made world headlines in October when he revealed his doubts about the fate of the missing plane, which disappeared early in the morning of March 8 this year. Now a second senior airline industry source has voiced his doubts about the fate of the plane, with the even wilder claim that the Boeing 777 may have been shot down by US military personnel...

    Gently used submarine base yours for $17.5M (sub not included) Norway is joining a growing trend of governments selling off old infrastructure installations like cupcakes at a bake sale. They've recently listed the Olavsvern Naval Submarine Base on the real estate market, and hope to add a cool $17.5 million to their budgetary bottom line for their efforts. Submarine is not included in the asking price. That's a sure sign times are really tough folks. Since anyone who will buy this base is clearly a gazillionaire that's not likely to stop them. In addition to needing to bring your own...

    Navy discloses rationale for base recommendations By DAVID SHARP The Associated Press Closing the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard carries a one-time cost of $448 million that could be recovered within four years without affecting the Navy's ability to service nuclear submarines, and realigning Brunswick Naval Air Station retains an operational airfield while consolidating patrol aircraft in Florida, the Navy contends. The report signed by Navy Secretary Gordon England provides the first detailed look at the Navy's reasoning behind its proposal to close Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, and to remove P-3 Orion and C-130 Hercules squadrons from Brunswick Naval Air...

    The leader of the Miami-Dade-based Southern Command told Congress the Guantánamo detention center has been an intelligence bonanza. WASHINGTON - The Pentagon's chief of Latin American operations cast the Guantánamo Bay prison for terrorism suspects as a success Wednesday, downplaying abuse allegations and emphasizing the gains of intelligence gathering.

Bantz Craddock said in written testimony for the House Armed Services Committee. About 4,000 reports from Guantánamo detainees have provided an...
