ISLAMIC STATE

An "Islamic fundamentalist terrorist" organisation which whistleblower Sibel Edmonds links to Operation Gladio/B and succinctly describes as a re-branding of al-Qaeda.

Wikipedia page Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant

The Islamic State (IS), also known as Daesh, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)
, is described as an Islamic fundamentalist terrorist organisation which reportedly was created by US, British and Israeli intelligence to promote the "War on Terror" narrative.[1]
 
Funded by USA[2], Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey and Qatar[3], the Islamic State uses a lot of US weapons[4]. It is alleged to have posted gruesome videos online and is said to have claimed responsibility for a series of attacks, most notably the downing of the Russian Airbus Metrojet Flight 9268 on 31 October 2015, the mass murder in Paris on 13 November 2015 and the mass murder in Brussels on 22 March 2016.[5]
 
A week after the Brussels attacks, former UK prime minister Tony Blair called for Britain to step up military action to “crush” ISIS or be faced with a terrorist “act of such size and horror” that it will result in “many more victims” than the atrocities in Brussels and Paris. Accused by some of scaremongering, and echoing the views of US presidential hopeful Donald Trump, Blair wrote in The Sunday Times:
“ISIS has to be eliminated with greater speed and vigour. Where they need active on-the-ground military support from us, we should give it. They have to be crushed.”[6]

This is one of those stories, that you have to research to make sure it’s not bogus, because although it’s something you would expect in this day and age from our leadership now, it’s still a huge shocker. So that’s what I did. I researched, and although a large part of me was hoping that I wouldn’t find this credible– it has been found to be plausible.

EXECUTIVE ORDER  -- UNITED STATES POLICY ON PRE- AND POST-STRIKE MEASURES TO ADDRESS CIVILIAN CASUALTIES IN U.S. OPERATIONS INVOLVING THE USE OF FORCE 


EXECUTIVE ORDER
- - - - - - -
UNITED STATES POLICY ON PRE- AND POST-STRIKE MEASURES TO ADDRESS CIVILIAN CASUALTIES IN U.S. OPERATIONS INVOLVING THE USE OF FORCE

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby direct as follows:
Section 1. Purpose. United States policy on civilian casualties resulting from U.S. operations involving the use of force in armed conflict or in the exercise of the Nation's inherent right of self-defense is based on our national interests, our values, and our legal obligations. As a Nation, we are steadfastly committed to complying with our obligations under the law of armed conflict, including those that address the protection of civilians, such as the fundamental principles of necessity, humanity, distinction, and proportionality.

The protection of civilians is fundamentally consistent with the effective, efficient, and decisive use of force in pursuit of U.S. national interests. Minimizing civilian casualties can further mission objectives; help maintain the support of partner governments and vulnerable populations, especially in the conduct of counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations; and enhance the legitimacy and sustainability of U.S. operations critical to our national security. As a matter of policy, the United States therefore routinely imposes certain heightened policy standards that are more protective than the requirements of the law of armed conflict that relate to the protection of civilians.

Civilian casualties are a tragic and at times unavoidable consequence of the use of force in situations of armed conflict or in the exercise of a state's inherent right of self-defense. The U.S. Government shall maintain and promote best practices that reduce the likelihood of civilian casualties, take appropriate steps when such casualties occur, and draw lessons from our operations to further enhance the protection of civilians.

Sec. 2. Policy. In furtherance of U.S. Government efforts to protect civilians in U.S. operations involving the use of force in armed conflict or in the exercise of the Nation's inherent right of self-defense, and with a view toward enhancing such efforts, relevant departments and agencies (agencies) shall continue to take certain measures in present and future operations.

(a) In particular, relevant agencies shall, consistent with mission objectives and applicable law, including the law of armed conflict:
(i) train personnel, commensurate with their responsibilities, on compliance with legal obligations and policy guidance that address the protection of civilians and on implementation of best practices that reduce the likelihood of civilian casualties, including through exercises, pre-deployment training, and simulations of complex operational environments that include civilians;
(ii) develop, acquire, and field intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems that, by enabling more accurate battlespace awareness, contribute to the protection of civilians;
 (iii) develop, acquire, and field weapon systems and other technological capabilities that further enable the discriminate use of force in different operational contexts;
 (iv) take feasible precautions in conducting attacks to reduce the likelihood of civilian casualties, such as providing warnings to the civilian population (unless the circumstances do not permit), adjusting the timing of attacks, taking steps to ensure military objectives and civilians are clearly distinguished, and taking other measures appropriate to the circumstances; and
(v) conduct assessments that assist in the reduction of civilian casualties by identifying risks to civilians and evaluating efforts to reduce risks to civilians.
(b) In addition to the responsibilities above, relevant agencies shall also, as appropriate and consistent with mission objectives and applicable law, including the law of armed conflict:
(i) review or investigate incidents involving civilian casualties, including by considering relevant and credible information from all available sources, such as other agencies, partner governments, and nongovernmental organizations, and take measures to mitigate the likelihood of future incidents of civilian casualties;
(ii) acknowledge U.S. Government responsibility for civilian casualties and offer condolences, including ex gratia payments, to civilians who are injured or to the families of civilians who are killed;
(iii) engage with foreign partners to share and learn best practices for reducing the likelihood of and responding to civilian casualties, including through appropriate training and assistance; and
(iv) maintain channels for engagement with the International Committee of the Red Cross and other nongovernmental organizations that operate in conflict zones and encourage such organizations to assist in efforts to distinguish between military objectives and civilians, including by appropriately marking protected facilities, vehicles, and personnel, and by providing updated information on the locations of such facilities and personnel.

Sec. 3. Report on Strikes Undertaken by the U.S. Government Against Terrorist Targets Outside Areas of Active Hostilities. (a) The Director of National Intelligence (DNI), or such other official as the President may designate, shall obtain from relevant agencies information about the number of strikes undertaken by the U.S. Government against terrorist targets outside areas of active hostilities from January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016, as well as assessments of combatant and non-combatant deaths resulting from those strikes, and publicly release an unclassified summary of such information no later than May 1, 2017.

By May 1 of each subsequent year, as consistent with the need to protect sources and methods, the DNI shall publicly release a report with the same information for the preceding calendar year.

(b) The annual report shall also include information obtained from relevant agencies regarding the general sources of information and methodology used to conduct these assessments and, as feasible and appropriate, shall address the general reasons for discrepancies between post-strike assessments from the U.S. Government and credible reporting from nongovernmental organizations regarding non-combatant deaths resulting from strikes undertaken by the U.S. Government against terrorist targets outside areas of active hostilities.

(c) In preparing a report under this section, the DNI shall review relevant and credible post-strike all-source reporting, including such information from nongovernmental sources, for the purpose of ensuring that this reporting is available to and considered by relevant agencies in their assessment of deaths.

(d) The Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs may, as appropriate, request that the head of any relevant agency conduct additional reviews related to the intelligence assessments of deaths from strikes against terrorist targets outside areas of active hostilities.

Sec. 4. Periodic Consultation. In furtherance of the policies and practices set forth in this order, the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, through the National Security Council staff, will convene agencies with relevant defense, counterterrorism, intelligence, legal, civilian protection, and technology expertise to consult on civilian casualty trends, consider potential improvements to U.S. Government civilian casualty mitigation efforts, and, as appropriate, report to the Deputies and Principals Committees, consistent with Presidential Policy Directive 1 or its successor. Specific incidents will not be considered in this context, and will continue to be examined within relevant chains of command.

Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) The policies and practices set forth above are not intended to alter, and shall be implemented consistent with, the authority and responsibility of commanders and other U.S. personnel to execute their mission as directed by the President or other appropriate authorities, which necessarily includes the inherent right of self-defense and the maintenance of good order and discipline among U.S. personnel. No part of this order modifies the chain of command of the U.S. Armed Forces or the authority of U.S. commanders.

(b) No part of this order modifies priorities in the collection of intelligence or the development, acquisition, or fielding of weapon systems and other technological capabilities.

(c) No part of this order shall prejudice or supplant established procedures pertaining to administrative or criminal investigative or judicial processes in the context of the military justice system or other applicable law and regulation.

(d) The policies set forth in this order are consistent with existing U.S. obligations under international law and are not intended to create new international legal obligations; nor shall anything in this order be construed to derogate from obligations under applicable law, including the law of armed conflict.

(e) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Amphibious dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52) departed her homeport of Naval Base San Diego July 7 for the biennial Rim of the Pacific 2016 exercise taking place in and around Southern California.

"It is an honor to take part in this year's RIMPAC," said Cmdr. Judd Krier, Pearl Harbor's commanding officer. "This is a unique opportunity to train with our partner nations. We will all greatly benefit from the knowledge that will be learned and shared during this evolution."

Pearl Harbor departed Naval Base San Diego for the Southern California coast where her crew will work with embarked partner nations during training evolutions including small boat, well deck, flight and dive operations. For many Sailors aboard Pearl Harbor, this is their first opportunity to work alongside service members from foreign militaries.

"In the Navy we conduct operations all over the world," said Lt. Walker Adams, Pearl Harbor's operations officer. "RIMPAC gives us the opportunity to host multiple nations and build interoperability, a valuable asset when we deploy."

Pearl Harbor will be hosting personnel from the Royal Australian Navy, Royal Canadian Navy, Mexican Navy, German Armed Forces, and the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force.

Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to August 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. As the world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971.

160706-N-BU440-079 SAN DIEGO (July 6, 2016) U.S. Marines, attached to 3rd Amphibious Assault Battalion's Bravo Company, embark on Mexican Navy's ARM Usumacinta (A-412), in an amphibious assault vehicle at Naval Base San Diego, as part of AAV operation training during Rim of the Pacific 2016. Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California.

SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- U.S. Marines and the Mexican Navy ship ARM Usumacinta (A-412) conducted amphibious assault vehicle operations at Naval Base San Diego as part of the multinational exercise Rim of the Pacific, July 6.

Six U.S. Marine AAVs, attached to Bravo Company, 3rd Amphibious Assault Battalion, took part in the exercise. This event served as the initial certification for U.S. amphibious assault vehicles that embarked Usumacinta.

"This exercise is really one of the first times that we were able to get some foreign crews familiarized with AAVs, their capabilities and limitations, and what we can offer a ground force as well as an amphibious force," said 1st Lt. Robert Plante, Bravo Company, 3rd Amphibious Assault Battalion. "This evolution promotes joint operability that can pay dividends in the future."

The AAVs launched from Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in transit to the Usumacinta, moored at Naval Base San Diego. Mexican and U.S. forces worked side-by-side to safely recover the vehicles, guiding them onto the ship's ramp and into her well deck. The scenario tested the Marine combat team's versatility, while providing realistic training to the Mexican navy.

"We are certifying not just the vehicles but our signalmen and our trafficmen," said Lt. Diego Galeana, ARM Usumacinta's officer in charge. "This experience for the crew and the U.S. Marines has been a unique one. Through working together we are strengthening the partnership between U.S. and Mexican forces."

The Southern California portion of RIMPAC allows U.S. and partner nations to train together with sea and shore based commands. Participants will receive relevant and realistic training in amphibious operations, explosive ordnance disposal, mine warfare countermeasures, and dive operations.

Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans.

PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP 2016 DEPARTS PHILIPPINES

Story Number: NNS160711-03Release Date: 7/11/2016 8:46:00 AM

160702-N-BB534-843 DARAGA, Philippines (July 2, 2016) Lt. Amy Zucharo, from Gainesville, Va., a pediatrician stationed aboard the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19), listens to a child's heart at Anislag Elementary School during Pacific Partnership 2016. Zucharo is at the school as part of a cooperative health engagement where Pacific Partnership personnel attached to Mercy and members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines spent the day sharing information about health care, hygiene and nutrition. Participants also provided direct care services including optometry, dental care, physical therapy and veterinary care. Pacific Partnership is visiting the Philippines for the seventh time since its first visit in 2006. Partner nations are working side-by-side with local military and non-government organizations to conduct cooperative health engagements, community relation events and subject matter expert exchanges to better prepare for a natural disaster or crisis.

LEGAZPI, Philippines (NNS) -- Pacific Partnership 2016 departed its second mission stop, the Republic of the Philippines July 11, after completing two weeks of humanitarian assistance and disaster response training, medical subject matter expert exchanges, cooperative health engagements and community relations events.

This year marks the seventh time Pacific Partnership has visited the Philippines since their first visit in 2006. While in Legazpi, Pacific Partnership worked with civilian and military personnel during a five-day humanitarian assistance and disaster response seminar.

"A key aspect of [this stop] was the disaster relief symposium," said Capt. Mike Spruce, Royal Australian Navy Reserve, deputy mission commander of Pacific Partnership 2016. "The Philippines suffer awful natural disasters, so it's vital that as partners we know how to work together to enable faster relief."

The disaster response workshop was co-hosted by the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Pacific Partnership 2016. Filipino civilian and military personnel worked with the Pacific Partnership team to step through response procedures on disasters such as a Category 5 typhoon striking the city and a volcanic eruption.

In addition to the two workshops, medical personnel embarked aboard hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) conducted SMEEs with their Filipino counterparts on topics such as nursing, blood banking, preventative medicine and engineering. CHEs were held in Ligao City, Tabaco City and Duraga. Each engagement was run by medical personnel from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, local hospitals and Pacific Partnership 2016.

"It was a great experience," said Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Charles Nugent. "Working alongside with the locals and learning from each other was awesome and it's something I'll always remember."

The engineering projects -- led by U.S. Navy Seabees, Marines, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines -- included the construction and renovation of Mabini water tower, Kinawitan Elementary School and Comun Elementary School, which will now also serve as civilian shelters during disasters.

"The areas often flood during bad weather, so to prevent that we cleared a lot of dirt and had a concrete pour which will help minimize flooding," said Utilitiesman 3rd Class Amber Woods. "Seeing the kids happy and always waving at us is great. It's that extra motivation that keeps us going and it feels good."

The Armed Forces of the Philippines also worked with U.S. service members at the engineering sites.

"They're so friendly, we put a lot of sweat into the projects together and meshed very well, they were a great addition to the team," added Woods.

Community relations events were also held throughout the Legazpi area, bringing the local people and children together with Pacific Partnership 2016 personnel -- including U.S. Pacific Fleet Band engagements, soccer, volleyball and basketball matches.

The rock group, "Big Wave," from the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band played at various locations throughout the city with service members from the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

"It was a great experience for the band to be able to share our talents with that of the host nation's," said Musician 3rd Class Jason Andrews. "Music is a tool that we can use to communicate when we don't speak their language, so the ability to play together was great and it really means a lot to the band."

"Pacific Partnership at its core is about nations working together," said Rear Adm. Brian Hurley, commander, Task Force 73. "This teamwork among nations can only occur through sustained relationships. Now in its 11th year, Pacific Partnership allows us to continually build relationships with nations across many years and across the vast area that is the Pacific Ocean."

After the Philippines, Mercy will conduct mission stops in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia. Pacific Partnership 2016 is focused on enhancing relationships and multinational-interoperability through knowledge exchange and cooperative training, ensuring partner nations are prepared to collectively and effectively respond when disaster strikes.

160711-N-IK388-095 PACIFIC OCEAN (July 11, 2016) The littoral combat ship USS Freedom (LCS 1) transits the Pacific Ocean after departing Naval Base San Diego July 9, to participate in the Rim of the Pacific 2016 exercise.

SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- The Navy's first littoral combat ship USS Freedom (LCS 1) departed Naval Base San Diego July 9 to participate in the world's largest international maritime exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2016.

Freedom will operate off the coast of Southern California and participate in mine interdiction warfare training with mine countermeasures ship USS Champion (MCM 4), amphibious dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52), Royal Canadian Navy Kingston-class coastal defense vessels HMCS Yellowknife (MM 706) and HMCS Saskatoon (MM 709).

"Our goal is twofold," said Cmdr. Michael Wohnhaas, commanding officer of Freedom. "One is to prove our expeditionary mine countermeasures capability, utilizing explosive ordnance disposal divers to test a capability that may well represent the future for the LCS platform. The second is to interact with our partner nations in the interest of peace in the Pacific."

Wohnhaas also said this is a great opportunity for the LCS crew to work with and learn from fleet and international partners. RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that strengthens international maritime partnerships, enhances interoperability and improves the readiness of participating forces for a wide range of potential operations.

LCS provides flexible capabilities, because it can go places other U.S. Navy ships cannot, operating hull-to-hull with regional allies and partners and ready to provide sustained naval presence.

Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world's oceans.

MILITARIZATION AND POLICE VIOLENCE IN AMERICA

By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich
Global Research, July 12, 2016

Region: USA
Theme: Law and Justice, Militarization and WMD, Police State & Civil Rights



Hardly a day goes by without news of a police killing.  And each time we hear from scholars and observers that the police is too militarized.   No doubt!

In 2014, I was flattered to have been approached by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Shasta Chapter to be their keynote speaker to address Government Secrecy, Drones, and Militarization.  After each police involved death, I would revisit my notes and wonder why I never published them.   After watching this video clip on my FB page on July 10, 2016, I decided to share an excerpt from the ACLU address of April 13, 2014.

(Of note, at the time of the talk, “Black Lives Matter” had not appeared on the national stage, nor had the training of police in Israel been fully exposed; as such, these very important factors were not included in the talk/excerpt below.  The following is simply talking points stringed together and lacks the flow and flare of academic writing.)

Historians and political scientists have warned us about  dangerous war fever sweeping the United States. Today we have gone beyond that.

The “Global War on Terror”, a war indefinite in duration, against an ill-defined and shifting enemy, al-Qaeda, [ISIS did not exist in the official narrative at the time] is now being armed in Syria [“moderates”] without a clear explanation of American strategy or a specific definition of victory, or even a way to measure progress in the struggle has taken its toll on civil liberty.  The problem of militarization poses a danger to the very character of American government and society.

In his first public interview after retiring from active duty in 2003, General Tommy Franks identified the single most dangerous possibility offered by an endless war on terrorism: An attack with weapons of mass destruction “just to create casualties … to terrify” could lead “the western world, the free world” to forfeit its “freedom and liberty,” to lose its democracy, and “begin to militarize our country in order to avoid a repeat of another mass-casualty event, … to potentially unravel the fabric of our Constitution.”

Over half a century ago,  Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson concluded that  “by giving way to the passion, intolerance and suspicions of wartime, it is easy to reduce our liberties to a shadow, often in answer to exaggerated claims of security.”.

That day is here.  Not only are we under constant surveillance, but  take for example the kill list.  A list which began under the Bush administration as a rationale for murdering suspect citizens of countries with which the United States was not at war has become Obama’s kill list and the scope of the list has been expanded to include the execution, without due process of law, of U.S. citizens accused, without evidence presented in court, of association with terrorism. And this is accepted by the people. No protests.

The Framers of the Constitution recognized such dangers when they carefully subordinated the military to civilian authority and attempted to limit the power of the President to initiate war.

Gregory Foster, a former Army officer and West Point graduate who now teaches national security studies at the National Defense University in Washington said that principle of civilian control of the military—an early building block of American democracy-  has become the  civilian subjugation to the military.

Today, the degree to which  society’s institutions, policies, behavior, thought, and values are devoted to military power and shaped by war are alarming.

The incursion of military recruiters and teachings into the public school system is well known.  Presidents favor speaking to captive audiences at military bases, defense bases, and on aircraft carriers.  Lawmakers’ constant use of “support our troops” to justify defense spending.   TV programs and video games like “NCIS,” “Homeland” and “Call of Duty,” to reality show “Stars Earn Stripes,” demonstrate that Americans are subjected to a daily diet of stories that valorize the military while the storytellers pursue their own opportunistic political and commercial agendas

Former secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld acknowledged publicly in an October 24, 2003, interview in the Washington Times: “We are in a war of ideas, as well as a global war on terror. Ideas are important, and they need to be marshaled, and they need to be communicated in ways that are persuasive to the listeners.”

This was part of his Information Operations Roadmap.   As part of the plan,  public affairs officers were given the task of briefing journalists.  In 2005 it came to light that the Pentagon paid the Lincoln Group (a private company) to plant ‘hundreds of stories’ in Iraqi papers in support of U.S. Policies

But now, we see that this war has been internalized, whether you look at drones, kill list, or militarization of the police force.

During the Clinton administration, Congress passed what’s now known as the “1033 Program,” which formalized  Reagan administration’s directive to the Pentagon to share surplus military gear with domestic police agencies. Since then, millions of pieces of military equipment designed for use on a battlefield have been transferred to local cops—SWAT teams and others—including machine guns, tanks, armored personnel carriers, etc.

The Pentagon’s 1033 program has exploded under Obama.

Bill Clinton also created the “Troops to Cops” program which offered grants to police departments who hired soldiers returning from battle, contributing even further to the militarization of the police force.

In a 2005 PBS documentary, David Grossman, a retired US Army Lt. Colonel spoke of training law enforcement groups worldwise to kill: “most of what I do is I train military and law enforcement in what I call the bulletproof mind.” “Prior preparation is that one variable in the equation that we can control ahead of time, and one of the key things is embracing the responsibility to kill.  So when I teach, one of the things I believe we need to do is embrace this word “kill.””

Is it any wonder that [Mayor] Bloomberg proudly bragged of “hav(ing) my own army in the NYPD” and who used that army to spy on peaceful Occupy Wall Street protestors?

And what of “to protect and to serve”?

APRES LE BREXIT, LA FRANCE ET L'ALLEMAGNE SE PREPARENT A "RENFORCER L'EUROPE DE LA DEFENSE»

13 juil. 2016, 19:14


© Stéphane de SakutinSource: AFP

Faisant écho à l’annonce par l’Allemagne de nouveaux «quartiers généraux militaires» européens, François Hollande a annoncé le 13 juillet qu'une proposition pour «renforcer l'Europe de la Défense» allait être présentée à l'initiative de la France.

«Nos amis Allemands y sont prêts. Nous pourrons donc porter ensemble cette initiative», a déclaré le président français dans un discours au ministère de la Défense. Il s'agira notamment de «faciliter les engagements de l'Union européenne à l'extérieur de ses frontières et de renforcer la sécurité chez nos partenaires et nos voisins», a-t-il précisé.


 La France et l'Allemagne ont préparé un projet pour l'UE après le Brexit


Plus tôt dans la journée, la ministre de la Défense allemande, Ursula von der Leyen, a indiqué que le départ de la Grande-Bretagne, qui a selon elle «paralysé l’Union européenne sur les questions de politique étrangère et de sécurité», allait permettre à Bruxelles «d'avancer sur ces questions».

Au cours d'une conférence de presse dans laquelle elle présentait la politique de sécurité de l'Allemagne, elle a évoqué la création de «quartiers généraux militaires et civils» européens, d’où les missions de l’UE pourraient être déployées, ainsi que la constitution d’une force médicale propre à l’Union.
Elle a indiqué que la France et l’Allemagne entameraient des discussions avec les autres pays européens au sujet d’un projet, à long terme, d’une Union de défense et de sécurité commune.

La Russie en ligne de mire ?

Durant son allocution, Ursula von der Leyden a accusé la Russie de menacer et de «remettre ouvertement en question l’état de la paix européenne». = Tout cela est planifié depuis longtemps.




«Sans un changement fondamental de politique, la Russie constituera un défi à la sécurité de notre continent dans un futur proche», a déclaré la ministre allemande.

LA FRANCE RENFORCE SON SOUTIEN AUX IRAKIENS ET SE RETIRE DE CENTRAFRIQUE

Je doute fortement que la France se retire de Centrafrique, où elle continuera sous la bannière des "peacekeepers" des Nations-Unies. Elle y est depuis si longtemps et a fait tellement de ravages chez ses peuples afin de s'emparer des richesses naturelles, tout en utilisant les peuples esclaves pour s'enrichir honteusement, tout comme l'a fait Léopold II de Belgique, au temps passé.

La France va envoyer plus de soldats pour conseiller les forces irakiennes en lutte contre le groupe Etat islamique et redéployer son porte-avions, le Charles de Gaulle, au Moyen-Orient à l'automne, a annoncé François Hollande, le 13 juillet.

«Nous allons encore intensifier le concours de l'armée de Terre pour soutenir les Irakiens dans la perspective de la reconquête de Mossoul», a déclaré le chef de l'Etat français dans un discours prononcé au ministère de la Défense.

«Le groupe aéronaval avec le porte-avions Charles de Gaulle sera de nouveau déployé au sein de l'opération Chammal à l'automne car nous devons frapper et détruire ceux qui nous ont agressés, ici, en janvier et en novembre 2015», a-t-il ajouté en référence aux attentats de Paris revendiqués par l'EI.

Environ 300 à 400 soldats français forment déjà des forces irakiennes à Bagdad et des peshmergas kurdes dans le nord de l'Irak, parfois au plus près de la ligne de front, sans prendre part toutefois directement aux combats.

Le porte-avions Charles de Gaulle a déjà été engagé à deux reprises dans la lutte contre le groupe EI en Irak et Syrie, une première fois au début 2015 et une deuxième au lendemain des attentats de novembre 2015.

Fin de l'opération française Sangaris malgré l'instabilité

Le président François Hollande a également annoncé que la France mettrait définitivement fin en octobre à son opération militaire Sangaris en Centrafrique, pays qui connaît pourtant un regain de tensions.

«En octobre prochain, le ministre de la Défense Jean-Yves Le Drian se rendra en Centrafrique pour prononcer officiellement la fin de l'opération Sangaris», a déclaré le chef de l'Etat lors d'une réception au ministère de la Défense.

La France qui avait lancé l'opération Sangaris dans l'urgence en décembre 2013 sur fond d'affrontements intercommunautaires, ne compte plus que 350 soldats sur place, contre plus de 2.000 au plus fort de la crise.

Le président Faustin-Archange Touadéra, élu en février, a déclaré dimanche que son pays était toujours «en danger», avec des «régions entières» sous le contrôle de groupes armés.

En avril, le ministre français de la Défense, Jean-Yves Le Drian, a déjà annoncé la fin de l'opération Sangaris d'ici la fin de l'année 2016.

RUSSIAN ARMAGEDDON CONVOY PRACTICES FOR WORLD WAR III - IF THIS WERE TO HAPPEN FOR REAL - WELL, HOPE YOU HAVE A FALLOUT SHELTER NEARBY.

By Kyle Mizokami
Jul 12, 2016

The largest country in the world by area, Russia has plenty of room to hide things. Naturally, that includes nuclear missiles. Unlike American missiles, which are stationed in concrete silos, Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are deployed on large truck-like vehicles designed to prowl the country's road networks before unleashing Armageddon.

Russia Today has a story on a Russian strategic missile exercise that involves a massive convoy traveling from European-Russian border all the way to the Mongolian border.

Russian mobile ICBMs have established, permanent bases but leave in groups on month-long patrols. This particular 400-vehicle convoy includes Topol, Topol-M, and Yars mobile missiles, as well as command and control, security, and logistics vehicles.

Topol and Yars missiles are capable of delivering one to four nuclear warheads within roughly a thousand feet of their target, making them accurate enough to destroy American missiles in their silos. This makes them a formidable first-strike weapon capable of wiping out a significant part of the US nuclear arsenal, if the Russians were so inclined.

The giant vehicles are TELs, or transporter-erector-launchers, specialized vehicles designed to give a heavy missile a smooth ride over rough roads. TELs not only store the missile but can launch it in the field. The launch tubes can be reloaded back at base (assuming, of course, there is a base to return to). The smaller vehicles are logistic, communications, and command and control vehicles.

Mobile ICBMs are vulnerable to ground attack, particularly enemy special forces who may attempt to destroy the missiles before they are launched. The convoy relies upon a Taifun-M armored reconnaissance vehicle to detect ambushes on the ground. Taifun-M bristles with sensors, including forward-looking infra-red, radar, and traditional optics, and can allegedly detect enemy troops at 3 kilometers.

Also part of the convoy is a tracked robotic vehicle equipped with a machine gun. The unmanned vehicle can more quickly close with an enemy threat and eliminate it before the enemy can shoot at the giant, highly flammable rockets with nuclear warheads strapped to them. We've said it before, and we'll say it again: these mobile ICBMs are terrifying.

UNIFIED NATO FLEET TO UPSET STABILITY IN BLACK SEA — SEVASTOPOL GOVERNOR

Russian Politics & Diplomacy
July 08, 19:03 UTC+3

The governor says the agreements on the Black Sea region existed before Crimea’s reunification with Russia and must not be violated

SEVASTOPOL, July 8 /TASS/. The creation of a unified NATO fleet in the Black Sea may upset the regional stability and force Russia to react adequately, Sergei Menyailo, the governor of Sevastopol, said replying to a question posed by a British correspondent.

NATO Black Sea military drills

A delegation of foreign journalists is visiting Crimea at the invitation of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

"The Black Sea states have been trying to resolve the tasks of ensuring security in the Black Sea for more than one year. I do not see the reason for creating any new structures. If anybody has such thoughts, I think that Russia’s reaction is going to be adequate," the governor of Sevastopol stressed.

"Stability in the Black Sea region is based on the existing agreements. It had existed before Crimea’s reunification with Russia. It simply should not be violated," Menyailo said. He added that joint naval operations by the Black Sea states such as the Blackseafor and the Operation Black Sea Harmony [OBSH] was a good example of joint efforts to ensure security in the Black Sea.

The Western sanctions
 
Talking about western sanctions against Russia, Menyailo said they were likely to remain in force even if Russia agreed to hold another referendum on Crimea and invited international observers to monitor the vote.

"Why should we hold a second referendum? What goal are we going to pursue? We could do that if everybody is going to recognize [Crimea-TASS] after that. But there is no guarantee that no one will start criticizing us again for doing everything wrong. Crimea and Sevastopol were just a pretext for the imposition of sanctions. The aim was to punish Russia for its disobedience. We are unlikely to prove anything to anybody even if ten referendums are held," Menyailo told the foreign journalists.

The governor does not think that Russia should justify the need to lift the sanctions in any way. "Why should we prove the need of lifting the sanctions to anybody? No one plays into one gates in football. Do not tell us by what rules we should live," Menyailo said.

Crimea and Sevastopol became parts of Russia on March 18, 2014 after the March 16 referendum on the Crimea status in which 96.77% of Crimean inhabitants had voted for reunification with Russia.

AWESOME AUTONOMY : THE FUTURE FORCE, ROBOBOATS

Story Number: NNS160715-27Release Date: 7/15/2016 3:18:00 PM  

By Sierra Jones, Office of Naval Research


150710-N-PO203-346 VIRGINIA BEACH, Va (July 10, 2015) Two teams from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., take part in a practice session during the international RoboBoat competition in Virginia Beach, Va. During the event, sponsored by the AUVSI Foundation and Office of Naval Research, student teams race autonomous surface vehicles of their own design through an aquatic obstacle course. (U.S. Navy photo by John F. Williams/Released)

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- The future of naval engineering was on display last week as 13 teams of high school and college students did battle at the 9th annual RoboBoat Competition in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The competition -- sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Foundation -- is a robotics contest where teams program their student-built autonomous surface vehicles to navigate through a series of water-based challenges.

"Every challenge in the competition is designed to mimic real-life maritime missions," said Kelly Cooper, a program officer in ONR's Sea Warfare and Weapons Department, Ship Systems and Engineering Research Division. "This competition really tests the engineering design and autonomous capabilities of the boat, as well as helps these students develop the engineering skills needed to be successful in a possible future in the naval research community."

Teams had two mandatory tasks and five missions to complete this year, all having to be done fully autonomously with no human guidance or intervention.

The mandatory tasks demonstrated the quality of each boat design by testing its propulsion, speed, navigation and basic sensing abilities. All of these tasks had to be successfully completed for any mission challenge points to be awarded.

This year's mission challenges were designed to showcase the boat's autonomous capabilities and included obstacle avoidance, automated docking, acoustic beacon positioning, launch, recovery and communication with an autonomous underwater vehicle, and finally, return to dock.

"We know that students want to win, but we hope they find the learning process rewarding as well," said Cooper. "We want them to walk away with experience and understanding of how their skills can be used to help the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Coast Guard and the nation."

Autonomous vehicles have grown in importance in recent years, with Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson stressing the importance of autonomy and unmanned systems in "A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority."

Recent naval-sponsored programs -- including Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard (EMILY), Sea Hunter, Autonomous Swarmboats and Low-Cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Swarming Technology (LOCUST) -- are just beginning to scratch the surface of the types of support autonomous and unmanned systems will be able to provide to warfighters, from coastal surveillance to water rescues, and from surface warfare to port security and special operations.

"As the science behind autonomous and unmanned systems continues to improve, you will begin to see more autonomous missions which free Sailors and Marines for other tasks, and protects them from some of their dangerous duties," said Cooper. "It's important that students participating in programs like RoboBoat know that they are a part of that process; they are fostering innovation through competition for the next generation of these types of naval systems."

Georgia Institute of Technology was this year's biggest winner, bringing home the top prize of $10,000. Florida Atlantic University won second prize and $4,000; Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember took third and $2,500; and the Daytona Beach Homeschoolers came in fourth, earning $1,500. Smaller awards of $1,000 and $500 in various special award categories went to the University of Ulsan, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember and Georgia Institute of Technology.

Other participants were Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Old Dominion University, SRM University, U.S. Naval Academy, Universitas Indonesia, University of Michigan and the University of West Florida.

USS MASON, USS ROOSEVELT WORK WITH FRENCH FOR MARITIME SECURITY OPERATIONS

Story Number: NNS160715-08Release Date: 7/15/2016 9:39:00 AM   

By Mass Communications Specialist 3rd Class Janweb B. Lagazo, USS Mason (DDG 87) Public Affairs


160711-N-CL027-109 GULF OF ADEN (July 11, 2016) Members of the visit, board, search and seizure team of the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Mason (DDG 87), the U.S. Coast Guard™s Maritime Security Response Team and the Equipe de Visit of French Horizon-class air defense destroyer FS Forbin (D620) conduct Maritime Security Operations. Mason, deployed as part of the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group, is supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communications Specialist 3rd Class Janweb B. Lagazo/Released)

RED SEA (NNS) -- Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Mason (DDG 87) and USS Roosevelt (DDG 80) participated with the French Marine Nationale's Horizon-class air defence destroyer FS Forbin (D 620) in a bilateral Maritime Security Operation (MSO) exercise, July 2.

The exercise allowed for members of the U.S. ships' visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) teams and France's Equipe de Visite team to simulate compliant and non-compliant anti-piracy and anti-smuggling MSOs -- an effort to work collectively with partnering maritime forces to safeguard vital links to the global economy.

"Working with other nations is something we are very attached to," said Lt. j.g. Eric, French liason officer aboard Mason. "The U.S. is our ally and we are used to working with them. Every time we work together, it adds more security for safer navigation around the world."

Eric continued to stress the importance for the two countries "to work together in determining if there is a threat in the Red Sea to navigation." He explained with France and the United States working together, there will be an "increase in information" that will lead to efficiency.

MSOs are conducted under international maritime conventions to promote a secure and stable regional economy. At the same time, it also complements counterterrorism and anti-piracy efforts of regional nations.

"I think [MSO] is part of an international solution," said Eric. "It is there to protect our ships' navigational lanes."

The United States has supported counterterrorism activities of regional navies and coast guards through exercises, training and coordinated operations with Combined Maritime Forces (CMF). CMF is a multinational naval partnership which exists to promote security, stability and prosperity by focusing on defeating terrorism, preventing piracy, encouraging regional cooperation, and promoting a safe maritime environment.

"With piracy and smuggling on the rise, VBSS teams are more important than ever," said Operations Specialist 2nd Class Robert Nette, Mason's VBSS training petty officer. "Mason's [VBSS] team is ready to confront any challenge and address every situation to perform efficiently and above par."

Mason has worked with four of the 31 member nations in CMF since beginning their scheduled deployment -- Italy, Greece, Turkey, and France.

"It's always a privilege to work with allies as proficient as [France]," said Nette, "Working in tandem with the French, who are very close allies, allowed us to expand our tactics and horizon. It makes transitions smoother and increases our combat readiness."

Nette continued to explain that the joint exercise "was a good way to knock off some rust" and allowed Mason to "improve for real-world scenarios."

"It's been interesting being on Mason because it shows a different way of doing things," said Eric. "It's always interesting to learn new things from other navies, especially the U.S. Navy. I've enjoyed my time here and I hope to see further cooperation between our ships."

Along with Mason, Ike CSG includes CSG 10 staff, Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 26 staff, aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3, guided-missile cruisers San Jacinto and USS Monterey (CG 61), and DESRON 26 ships guided-missile destroyers USS Stout (DDG 55), Roosevelt and USS Nitze (DDG 94).

OMINATO, Japan (NNS) -- U.S. mine countermeasures (MCM) units and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force MCM units are scheduled to commence the 2016 Mine Countermeasures Exercise (MCMEX) 2JA, July 17.

MCMEX 2JA is an annual bilateral exercise held between the U.S. and Japan to strengthen interoperability and increase proficiencies in mine countermeasure operations.

"We are looking forward to working again and learning from our Japanese counterparts," said Capt. Jim Miller, commodore, Mine Countermeasures Squadron (MCMRON) 7. "Mine countermeasures remains a critical capability in this dynamic theater. And this exercise will pay dividends in increasing our ability to execute these types of missions."

During the exercise, participating units will practice unit-level mine countermeasures tactics to include sweeping, hunting, helicopter casting, and neutralization using remotely operated vehicles, sonar, and sweep gear.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) personnel will conduct dive operations from JMSDF ships, U.S. ships and MH-60S helicopters in support of mine countermeasures efforts.

The exercise will culminate in a combined phase in which U.S. and JMSDF will coordinate and communicate to clear a route for ships through a simulated minefield in one of the designated exercise areas.

U.S. units participating include Avenger-class mine countermeasures ship USS Patriot (MCM 7), Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 5, Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron (HM) 14, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25, and staff from Mine Countermeasures Squadron (MCMRON) 7.

DJIBOUTI : AMBOULI AIRPORT SUPPORTS FLIGHT OPERATIONS AMID JUBA CRISIS


Story Number: NNS160716-04Release Date: 7/16/2016 6:26:00 PM 

By Lt. Desiree V. Woodman, Camp Lemonnier Public Affairs




DJIBOUTI, Africa (NNS) -- Although last week's escalation of attacks in South Sudan caused immediate cancellations of all flights in Juba, Ambouli International Airport stepped up to the challenge, providing superior support for both commercial and military operational flights to their airfield.

Fighting broke out in South Sudan on July 7 between government and opposition forces. The increased concern over the security situation led to Juba International Airport closing its airfield July 9 to incoming and outgoing flights. Coordination between both U.S. military and Djiboutian airport leadership in the Horn of Africa assisted in the joint effort of ensuring safe transport during the influx of activity to Ambouli.

Air Operations Officer, U.S. Navy Lt. Matthew Daniels, said Ambouli's director of the airport assured priority handling and support of increased mission events.

"Coordination on several short-fused request has proven to be positive to flight operations with the Djiboutian leadership in regards to the current needs of the airfield," Daniels said. "Both Djiboutian and U.S. [Navy] air-traffic controllers have truly shown professionalism and readiness to combat any situation."

In a previous interview, Daniels said the three tenants of air traffic control are to execute the mission by providing 'safe, orderly, and expeditious' flow of traffic. U.S. and Djiboutian Air-Traffic Controllers (ATC) have shown an immeasurable response and control of flight operations without missing a beat.

Djiboutian ATC Field Officer Mohammad Mousse has been one of the driving forces to ensure military operations can take place on the airfield. The impact has led to several successful missions in the past week. During the increased operations tempo, massive coordination between Djiboutian and Navy ATCs and KBR employees has been crucial.

Camp Lemonnier Airfield Manager, Christopher Williams, said the mutual relationship and understanding of military operations was key in the recent and continued success of airfield readiness.

"We've established a great working relationship with the Djiboutian airport leadership," Williams said. "That rapport is apparent in the smooth coordination, timely reaction and operational response to real world events."

Air Traffic Control Chief Francis Beaudoin said there is a mutual respect that has grown between the team that has been helpful.

"The relationship we have allows us to get the mission done. When events pop up, we can mutually help one another bridge the gap," Beaudoin said.

The recent high visible activities at Ambouli represents the superior capability the air traffic controllers have in supporting missions day or night. The airport is a full functioning military airfield that has caught the attention of higher echelon leadership throughout the region.

Flight operations onto the airfield are coordinated through the Djiboutian Air Tower. Safety of military personnel, aircraft and cargo is the priority for all operations from Ambouli.

The airfield has undergone massive improvements in the past year. These improvements include the runway and navigation systems. The joint training has proven to be beneficial during crucial events.

"We've seen unwavering flexibility and a driven initiative by all to safely execute this mission," Williams said. "It's apparent that there is a mutual understanding of the importance and complexity of the Juba operation."

Camp Lemonnier provides, operates, and sustains superior service in support of combat readiness along with security of ships and aircraft detachments and personnel for regional and combat command requirements, enabling operations for the Horn of Africa while fostering positive U.S.-African nation relations. Camp Lemonnier enables the forward operations and responsiveness of U.S. and allied forces in support of Navy Region, Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia's mission to provide services to the fleet, fighter, and family.

NATO needs to focus on fighting the world’s biggest threat – terrorism, and not Russia, French Senator Yves Pozzo di Borgo told Radio Sputnik.

Russia, Syria Ready to Bring War on Terror to Logical End

In the wake of Thursday night’s deadly truck attack in Nice, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg expressed his solidarity with the people of France.
In an interview with Radio Sputnik French Senator Yves Pozzo di Borgo said that this is all very nice, but the West needs to actually to focus more on fighting Daesh instead of turning on Russia.

“There is one thing NATO should realize – Russian security services are our major partners and our primary goal is to fight Daesh instead of creating a holy alliance against Russia,” said the Corsican-born Senator representing the city of Paris for the Centrist Union of Democrats and Independents.

“We need to coordinate our actions with Europe. Europol and Eurojust must become federal structures to operate more efficiently. We need to work together with US security services and those in Maghreb and with Russian services.”

He also praised Russia’s prominent role in the ongoing effort to weed out the scourge of terrorism in various parts of the world.

“Russians are incredibly efficient in their fight against terrorists. This is our primary goal now and we can achieve it only by working together,” he emphasized.

Responding to a pledge by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to his across-the-board support in the war on terror, Yves Pozzo di Borgo complained about the EC’s refusal to finance military training and called for greater “federalization” and better financing of European security structures.

“The European Commission says it is investing in security. It’s a lie!” the Senator added.

When asked about the European countries’ role in the ongoing war on terror, Yves Pozzo di Borgo said that individual countries should have more say in the work being done by organizations like Europol and Eurojust.

“Europe should be more involved in this. The [European] countries are coordinating their actions, the French Interior Minister is doing a pretty good job here, but much, much more still needs to be done!” the Senator emphasized.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. based pro-Muslim group that enjoys close ties with President Obama, announced they are joining with #BlackLivesMatter and calling for a revolution in the United States and they plan on using this upcoming election to do so.

“Black Lives Matter… Basically you [Muslims] are the new black people of America, you are being denied rights, you are being denied the American Dream… If we don’t stand, you will see Muslims murdered in the streets. We are the community that staged a revolution around the world.. why can’t we do that in America?”

“We are the children of Muhammad… YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD DO… if we do it, Allah has promised us the same victories as those who came before us.”



CAIR was one of 82 groups around the world designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates, placing it in the company of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and others.

While CAIR has previously been linked to Hamas, it has held dozens of meetings with Obama and continues to be portrayed by mainstream media in a positive light as pro-Muslim advocates.

The head of CAIR said that Muslims could comprise the swing vote in the presidential elections if 1 million of them registered to vote, as he urged them to turn mosques into polling stations.

“I believe we have at least 1 million Muslim eligible voters in this country. We have to register every single Muslim to vote in 2016. The Muslim vote can be the swing vote in major states,” CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said at the Muslim American Society (MAS) and Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) annual conference in Chicago.

“Turn your centers, Islamic centers, mosques into registration centers for voters, into polling stations during the election time,” he said.

Star Spangled Shariah or a Muslim Brotherhood Revolution?

LE COUP D'ETAT RATE EN TURQUIE N'EST PAS UN "CHEQUE EN BLANC" POUR ERDOGAN








Après la tentative de coup d'Etat militaire en Turquie, causant près de 6.000 arrestations, le chef de la diplomatie française Jean-Marc Ayrault a appelé Ankara à respecter l'état de droit.

Selon le chef de la diplomatie française Jean-Marc Ayrault, le coup d'Etat raté en Turquie n'est pas un "chèque en blanc" au président turc Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"Nous voulons que l'état de droit fonctionne pleinement en Turquie", a déclaré le ministre à la chaîne de télévision France 3, ajoutant que le putsch raté ne donnait pas "un chèque en blanc" au président turc pour faire des "purges".

La France vise à débattre cette question lundi prochain à Washington lors d'une réunion de la coalition militaire la question de la fiabilité de la Turquie dans la lutte contre l'Etat islamique

"Encore une fois à Bruxelles nous allons parler de la Turquie et rappeler que la Turquie doit se conformer aussi aux règles démocratiques européennes", a-t-il ajouté.

"Il ne faut pas faire des purges, il faut que l'état de droit fonctionne".

TURQUIE : LA BASE D'INCIRLIK INTERDITE D'ACCES ET DE SORTIE, PRIVEE D'ELECTRICITE


L’équipe du site




La base aérienne turque d'Incirlik a été privée d'électricité et les entrées et sorties n'y sont plus possibles, a annoncé samedi le consulat des Etats-Unis à Adana (sud) à propos de cette base utilisée par la coalition internationale et par l'Otan.

"Les autorités locales ont interdit les mouvements vers et à partir de la base aérienne d'Incirlik", a annoncé le consulat sur son site alors qu'une tentative de coup d'Etat vient d'échouer en Turquie. "L’électricité a également été coupée".

Cette base stratégique de l’OTAN abrite notamment des armes nucléaires américaines.

«Les autorités locales empêchent tous les mouvements dans et hors de la base aérienne de Incirlik. L’électricité a aussi été coupée», a indiqué le consul américain à Adana, dans un communiqué de presse.

«Veuillez éviter la base aérienne jusqu’à ce que les opérations normales aient été restaurées», ajoute le texte sans donner plus d’explication.

Selon la chaîne d’actualité américaine CNN, l’espace aérien au-dessus de la zone a lui aussi été fermé.

En conséquence, les missions américaines menées contre (la milice wahhabite) Daesh depuis la base d’Incirlik ont été temporairement suspendues, a indiqué un responsable américain à l'AFP sous couvert d'anonymat.

Les autorités turques ont communiqué à leurs homologues américains que l’espace aérien restera fermé jusqu’à ce que les forces pro-gouvernementales reprennent le contrôle total de la situation régionale, après la tentative de coup d’Etat qu’a vécu le pays le 15 juillet.

Elles ont ajouté vouloir s’assurer que tous les éléments de l’aviation turque soient bien sous le contrôle des forces pro-gouvernementales, alors que des avions et des hélicoptères militaires ont été utilisés par des putschistes la veille.

La base aérienne d’Incirlik est d’une importance cruciale pour l’armée des Etats-Unis puisqu’elle permet à Washington de mener des opérations dans les pays voisins, comme la Syrie et l'Irak. Mais surtout, ce site de l’OTAN héberge des armes nucléaires tactiques américaines.

Un groupe au sein de l’armée turque a tenté de mener un coup d’Etat dans la nuit du 15 juillet contre le gouvernement de Recep Tayyip Erdogan. La tentative a échoué, faisant au total 265 morts, dont 104 putschistes selon les chiffres du Premier ministre turc.

CHIEFS OF US AND CHINESE NAVIES AGREE ON NEED FOR COOPERATION

Story Number: NNS160718-17Release Date: 7/18/2016 2:05:00 PM 

From Chief of Naval Operations Public Affairs




160718-N-AT895-002 BEIJING (July 18, 2016) Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson meets with Adm. Wu Shengli, Commander of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), at the PLAN headquarters in Beijing. Richardson is on a multi-day trip to China to meet with his counterpart and tour the Chinese North Sea fleet in Qingdao.

BEIJING (NNS) -- Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson met with People's Liberation Army (Navy) (PLA(N)) Commander Adm. Wu Shengli during professional and social events held July 18 at navy headquarters in Beijing.

The goal of the engagement was to improve mutual understanding and encourage professional interaction between the two navies.

"I appreciate the opportunity to visit China and to meet with Adm. Wu in person-there is no substitute for these types of face-to-face meetings," said Richardson. "My goal is to forge a relationship built on frankness and cooperation. Given the responsibilities that our navies have, we must work together and speak candidly-when we agree as well as when we have differing opinions."

"I am very happy to receive you here today," said Wu. "We attach great importance to your visit. Your visit to China, at our invitation, shows how both sides put great priority on maritime issues."

The two leaders had frank and substantive conversations on the importance of operating safely, in accordance with international law; future opportunities for the two navies to engage; and the South China Sea.

The visit, which has been in works for months, was Richardson's first visit to China as the chief of naval operations and his first in-person meeting with Wu. Over the last year, the two admirals have held three discussions via video teleconference.

CNO will travel next to Qingdao, home of the Chinese North Sea Fleet, where he is scheduled to visit the Chinese Navy's submarine academy and tour the aircraft carrier Liaoning (CV-16).

PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP 2016 ARRIVES IN VIETNAM

Story Number: NNS160716-02Release Date: 7/16/2016 5:48:00 PM
  
By Sgt. Brittney Vella, Pacific Partnership Public Affairs

Upon arrival, partner nations will work side-by-side with local military and non-government organizations to conduct cooperative health engagements, community relation events and subject matter expert exchanges to better prepare for a natural disaster or crisis.

DA NANG, Vietnam (NNS) -- Pacific Partnership 2016 (PP16) kicked off in Da Nang, Vietnam this morning, July 15, for the third consecutive year, with the arrival of the U.S. hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) and the Japanese Navy ship JSDS Shimokita (LST-4002). This year, the Vietnam People's Navy ship Khanh Hoa is also participating. This is the seventh time in eleven years that this event has taken place in Vietnam's provinces and cities.

Participating in this year's events are many partner nations, including Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Palau, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Timor Leste, the United Kingdom, the United States and Vietnam, with the purpose of improving disaster preparedness and regional responsiveness.

The Government of Vietnam approved Da Nang City as the destination for PP16. The city has collaborated with Central Government agencies and PP16 partners to organize the two-week event, with the aim of meeting the needs of Vietnam and the city, and enhancing humanitarian cooperation and friendship exchange that contribute to promoting U.S. - Vietnam national defense cooperation.

While in Vietnam, PP16 personnel will work side-by-side with Vietnamese civilian medical officers, pay a courtesy call to leaders of the Da Nang People's Committee, participate in civil engineering projects, exchange expertise with military medical staff on the Khanh Hoa, as well as participate in community projects. In addition, Da Nang City will organize Da Nang's Foreigners Football Cup with the U.S. and Japanese PP16 teams in attendance.

Lt. Cmdr. Jason Dao, the American officer in charge of the Vietnam mission, anticipates that this year's multi-national program will augment previous years' collaboration and training opportunities. "The scope of the mission is slightly different from previous years' missions. While PP16 retains the traditional humanitarian aid and disaster relief (HA/DR), medical, engineering and community relation projects, this year's mission includes a Japanese ship the Shimokita and the Vietnam People's Navy's Khanh Hoa."

In a continuation of the crisis management and response activities from PP15, PP16 personnel and those from Vietnam's side will conduct a seven day humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HA/DR) workshop that culminates in a crisis management drill.

The drill includes disaster preparedness, national and regional response, coastal medicine and maritime search and rescue. In addition, Vietnamese partners, together with the U.S. Navy and Marines, will complete renovations of Hoa Phu Primary School, Chinh Gian Medical Station, Rang Dong Kindergarten and Tuong Lai Specialized School. A Pacific Fleet Band will perform at Bach Dang Street and Bien Dong Park, and PP16 personnel will provide lifeguard training and English conversational skills to members of Da Nang's community.

U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius commented, "PP16 serves as a concrete example of the mutually beneficial activities President Obama discussed in his May visit to Vietnam. PP16 builds trust and evidences the U.S. commitment to Vietnam and the region. We want to help Vietnam succeed and we are here to stay." U.S.-Vietnam relations have developed positively, meeting the interests of the two sides' people and contributing to maintaining peace, stability and development cooperation in the region.

After Vietnam, Pacific Partnership 16 continues onto Malaysia and Indonesia.

MANAMA, Bahrain (NNS) -- The U.S. Navy, Army and Coast Guard together with Iraqi and Kuwaiti navies and Kuwait Coast Guard, solidified the creation of the first in a series of U.S.-Iraq-Kuwait trilateral exercises following an initial planning conference held at Naval Support Activity Bahrain, July 13.

The U.S.-Iraq-Kuwait trilateral will be a quarterly exercise that serves to develop the proficiency of all participating forces to work together in support of regional safety and security.

The trilateral will replace two separate monthly U.S.-Iraq and U.S.-Kuwait bilateral exercises and serves to support long-term regional cooperation of forces in the Arabian Gulf.

"We are happy to work cooperatively with our brotherly Kuwaiti navy to protect our waters from external threats," said Capt. Abdulate'ef K. Obaid, Iraqi navy senior naval representative.

"It will be a good opportunity to reengage with our Iraqi friends in order to secure the area from any threats," said Cmdr. Walid Sabti, Kuwaiti navy head of training. "We have the same needs for security, and the success of this exercise depends on each other."

Commander, Task Force (CTF) 55 facilitated the conference, which consisted of representatives from U.S., Kuwaiti and Iraqi forces in order to solidify schedule of training events and address any potential challenges that might take place during the trilateral.

"We value greatly the role this exercise will play in building security interoperability, as well as for the enhancement of our collective capability to operate forward in the Arabian Gulf and promote regional political and economic stability," said Capt. Andrew Arnold, commodore, CTF 55.

The trilateral concept was driven by the desire of the three partner nations to cooperatively address threats that exist in the Arabian Gulf. The Republic of Iraq became a member of the Combined Maritime Forces in February. With a desire to increase its involvement in maintaining security and stability in the region, planning for the exercise series began.

"The trilateral exercise this August with our partners, Kuwait and Iraq, is a significant milestone because it is the first joint exercise since 2006 that simultaneously involves both countries," said Arnold.

Training will include a search and rescue exercise; nighttime joint patrol; visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) operations, fast attack craft and fast inshore attack craft defense, first-aid response and maritime infrastructure protection.

"We would like to have medical exchanges between ships with as many people as possible," said Sabti. "It is valuable information, and it would be good to share that."

CTF 55 controls surface forces including U.S. Navy coastal patrol craft and U.S. Coast Guard patrols boats in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations. U.S. 5th Fleet continues to expand its relationship with Iraqi and Kuwaiti forces through key leader engagements, professional exchanges and by conducting exercises in the Arabian Gulf.

US, SINGAPORE ARMED FORCES INCREASE COMPLEXITY, ENHANCE LONGSTANDING PARTNERSHIP DURING CARAT

Story Number: NNS160719-01Release Date: 7/19/2016 8:11:00 AM 

From Task Force 73 Public Affairs


U.S. Marines, U.S. Sailors and Singapore Sailors conduct close quarters battle training as part of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) Singapore 2015 at Brani Naval Base, Singapore, July 16, 2015. CARAT is an annual, bilateral exercise series with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the armed forces of nine partner nations. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Trever Statz/Released)

SINGAPORE (NNS) -- The 22nd annual Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) exercise between the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and Republic of Singapore Armed Forces held opening ceremonies at Changi Naval Base July 19.

CARAT Singapore 2016 will consist of nearly two weeks of shore-based and at-sea training engagements in multiple warfare areas. The exercise is focused on addressing shared maritime security concerns, building relationships and enhancing interoperability among participating forces for the two nations.

In his opening address, Republic of Singapore Navy Fleet Commander, Rear Adm. Lew Chuen Hong, highlighted the importance of strengthening interoperability and bilateral relations between the two navies.

Speaking about the role of CARAT Singapore, Lew said, "Deep and longstanding defense relations need to be continually nurtured and strengthened. CARAT Singapore continues to be professionally useful for both Singapore and the United States."

At sea, the U.S. and Republic of Singapore navy (RSN) will conduct an air defense exercise; gunnery exercise; cross-deck helicopter operations; anti-submarine warfare training; visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) operations; and complex surface warfare maneuvering tactics. The execution of such a diverse and complex exercise is testament to the relationship and familiarity the two navies have forged through 22 consecutive years of operating together during CARAT.

"The Republic of Singapore navy is a capable and respected maritime partner that shares our commitment to the peace and security of the Indo-Asia-Pacific region," said Rear Adm. Brian Hurley, commander, Logistics Group Western Pacific/Task Force 73. "Twenty-two years of CARAT engagements have fostered trust and confidence among our sailors and our navies that allows us to train and operate together in a very complex manner and increase our combined readiness and capabilities."

Also during the sea phase, and for the first time ever during a CARAT exercise, the two navies will execute a ship anti-submarine warfare readiness/effectiveness measuring (SHAREM) exercise. SHAREM measures how well surface ships and aircraft can detect and track submarines, and provides the two navies the opportunity to share tactics and develop procedures for future joint operations.

During the harbor phase, professional exchanges in anti-submarine warfare, military law, aviation and medical operations highlight the continued trend of sharing the most advanced practices and procedures between the two armed forces.

"Our teams have been working together since the completion of CARAT Singapore 2015 to develop and plan this year's exercise," said Capt. H.B. Le, commodore, Destroyer Squadron 7. "We've incorporated new events and increased the complexity throughout, and I think this shows our mutual commitment to making CARAT 2016 the most advanced exercise to date."

After more than two decades of annual CARAT training engagements between U.S. and Republic of Singapore Armed Forces, the exercise remains a model for cooperation that has evolved in complexity and enables both nations to refine maritime operations and tactics.

CARAT is a series of bilateral naval exercises between the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and the armed forces of Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Timor-Leste. CARAT 2016 is the most complex series to date. Its continuing relevance for more than two decades speaks to the high quality of exercise events and the enduring value of regional cooperation among allies and partners in South and Southeast Asia.

U.S. assets scheduled to participate in CARAT Singapore 2016 include Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Stethem (DDG 63) and USS Spruance (DDG 111), expeditionary fast transport ship USNS Millinocket (T-EPF-3), a P-8 Poseidon, and staff from Task Force 73 and Destroyer Squadron 7.

Commander, Task Force 73 and Destroyer Squadron 7 staff conduct advanced planning, organize resources and directly support the execution of maritime exercises such as the bilateral CARAT series, the Naval Engagement Activity (NEA) with Vietnam, and the multilateral Southeast Asia Cooperation and Training (SEACAT) with Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
