Risk of US-Chinese maritime confrontation increases in South China Sea #Spratly

The Spratlies have always been a flash point in the South China Sea.  China, Vietnam and the Philippines have all laid claim to this pile of coral that has no economic value.  However, by asserting sovereignty, each of these countries effectively extends its borders and theoretically can control commerce in the South China Sea. The …

US Special Ops raid killing five #ISIS chiefs had to be coordinated with Syria and Russia

Interesting analysis from DEBKA. The bottom line here is that we made a deal with the devil and some day there will be hell to pay.  We  needed Syria and Russia to pull off this raid.  The raid was successful and may have long term consequences to ISIS.  But so will the fall of Ramadi.  …

U.S. #Jihad Deradicalization Program Fails, Subject Re-Arrested | PJ Tatler

Now he’ll be put in jail where he can radicalize lots of others.  He should have been allowed to go to Syria and be killed.  His passport and citizenship should be revoked just in case he wants to come back here.

USAF deploys combat aircraft to Eastern Europe and the Baltics – IHS Jane’s 360

What about Ukraine? Will these be enough to deter Russian aggression there?  Will they stop a Russian invasion of the Baltics?

Tehran: Attacking #Yemen -bound aid ship will “ignite war”

Another red line for Obama.  He will no doubt back off to appease Iran. Will Arabia and Egypt do the same?  At a minimum the ship should be boarded and inspected.  If there are no arms, let it continue its mission.  If there are arms the ship should be seized.  Let Iran back up its bluster. …

Indiegogo won’t allow campaign for Balt cops but has one for convicted cop killer https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mumia-abu-jamal-needs-medical-care-now

Someone needs to let Megyn Kelly know about this.  She had one of the wives on her show who said that Indiegogo took down her campaign because they don’t allow them for accused felons.  I guess its OK for someone who is on death row, however. They also host a campaign to send money to …

US delegation to discuss investment in #Iran ’s oil industry…despite “sanctions”

US delegation to discuss investment in Iran’s oil industry Here is another indication that Obama has no inclination to do anything but sign a deal with Iran.  If he was serious these officials would not be allowed to do anything until sanctions were lifted.  However, it is obvious that Obama is confident that there will …
