GENERAL STAFF CHIEFS OF 14 ANTI-DAESH COALITION STATES MEET IN SAUDI ARABIA

General staff chiefs of 14 member states of the US-led coalition against the Daesh jihadist group gathered on Sunday in the capital of Saudi Arabia, local media reported.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Asharq Al-Awsat media outlet, the representatives of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Turkey, the UAE and the United States are set to discuss possible ways to boost coalition efforts aimed at destroying the Daesh terror group, banned in many countries, including Russia.

The US-led coalition of 68 nations has been conducting airstrikes against Daesh in Syria and Iraq since 2014. The strikes in Syria are not authorized by the government of President Bashar Assad or the UN Security Council.

7859e séance – après-midi

LE CONSEIL DE SECURITE EXAMINE LE PREMIER RAPPORT DE LA MISSION DE L'ONU EN COLOMBIE OU LE DEPÔT COMPLET DES ARMES EST PREVU POUR JUIN 2017


Le Conseil de sécurité a examiné aujourd’hui le premier rapport trimestriel de la Mission des Nations Unies en Colombie créée par la résolution 2261 du 25 janvier 2016 pour surveiller et vérifier le cessez-le-feu après l’« Accord final pour la fin du conflit et la construction d’une paix stable et durable » signé, à Cartagena, le 26 septembre 2016, par le Gouvernement colombien et les Forces armées révolutionnaires de Colombie-Armée populaire (FARC-EP).

L’accord, qui a fait l’objet d’un référendum, a été rejeté le 2 octobre avant qu’une version révisée ne soit adoptée par le Sénat puis par la Chambre des représentants, à la fin du mois de novembre, son entrée en vigueur marquant le début de l’instauration de la paix en Colombie et permettant à la Mission de l’ONU de s’acquitter pleinement de son mandat portant principalement sur la surveillance et la vérification du cessez-le-feu, la cessation des hostilités et le dépôt des armes. = Cela aurait dû être fait AVANT la signature de l'accord. Maintenant, ils trouveront toujours une raison quelconque pour dire que ceci ou cela n'a pas fonctionné et ainsi les FARC continueront à avoir le beau jeu sur le contrôle, la violence et les meurtres dans ces 26 zones. Cela ressemble à un simple redéploiement des forces des FARC pour un meilleur contrôle sur le pays.

Le processus de paix se heurte à toute sorte de difficultés mais il a des atouts solides dont la détermination sans faille du Gouvernement colombien et de la direction des FARC à persévérer dans la paix, sans oublier la volonté populaire de tourner la page du conflit le plus vieux du monde, a rassuré M. Jean Arnault, Chef de la Mission de l’ONU en Colombie, qui présentait son premier rapport trimestriel.

M. Arnault a expliqué que pour des raisons logistiques, il est impossible de respecter les délais, dont le rassemblement avant le 1er janvier des combattants des FARC et des milices et la destruction, le 30 janvier, des munitions instables.  En dépit des retards, il s’est félicité de ce que le Président colombien et le Chef des FARC se soient engagés à tout mettre en œuvre pour parvenir à finaliser le dépôt des armes au début juin 2017, la destruction des munitions instables commençant dès à présent.


Le Mécanisme tripartite de vérification –ONU, Gouvernement colombien et FARC- est déployé dans 18 des 26 camps et la Mission a sur place 350 des 450 observateurs attendusLa surveillance des camps des FARC s’est intensifiée et l’armée colombienne a redéployé ses unités de sorte qu’une distance d’au moins 3 kilomètres la sépare des camps des FARC-EP installés à chaque point de regroupement, a précisé le Chef de la Mission de l’ONU.

L’accent doit maintenant être mis sur la mise en place des camps destinés à l’accueil des FARC, a-t-il dit, notant que les travaux ont commencé dans un tiers des 26 camps.  Hier, le Président colombien a déclaré au Conseil des ministres que ces travaux doivent être la priorité pour lancer au plus tôt le processus de dépôt des armes.  En attendant, le matériel de stockage et de marquage des armes est distribué dans tous les bureaux de la Mission de l’ONU installés dans le pays. 
= Pourquoi des camps pour l'accueil des FARC? Ne devraient-ils pas, suite à cette immunité, retourner dans leur famille et vivre une vie normale et non être liés au programme du DRRR des Nations Unies et ainsi pouvoir être redéployés selon les besoins et stratégies de l'ONU? Dans le paragraphe suivant on parle de "réintégration des membres des FARC dans la vie civile". Civile, peut-être mais côté travail, ils continueront d'être utilisés. On ne lâche pas de si vaillants para-militaires ainsi avec toute "l'expérience" acquise durant de si nombreuses années. Il y a un autre agenda derrière tout cela. Remarquez la distance entre chacun de ces camps. Pourquoi ces camps?  J'ai la nette impression que ces "nouveaux convertis" seront ceux qui règneront sur ces camps, des soldats à la solde du gouvernement, qui je le crains, pourraient devenir des camps de réfugiés ou devrais-je dire, des camps de concentration pour le petit peuple.
 
Un aspect clef de la mise en œuvre de la paix est la réintégration des membres des FARC dans la vie civile, a insisté M. Arnault, en prévenant que cette étape est étroitement liée au succès du dépôt des armes.  Il s’est donc félicité de la mise en place le 20 décembre dernier, d’un Conseil national de réintégration qui, depuis, a déjà tenu quatre réunions.  Il s’est aussi félicité de l’inscription à la sécurité sociale de quelque 2 500 FARC. 

Le 28 décembre, s’est-il encore réjoui, le Congrès a adopté la loi d’amnistie qui exclut toutefois les crimes graves. = On ne dit pas toutefois en quoi consiste les crimes graves, laissant croire ainsi à une illusion de justice alors qu'il n'en est rien.

 Exigée par les FARC, cette loi, qui devrait conduire à la libération de 4 000 prisonniers, devrait aussi faciliter le dépôt des armes et l’arrivée des FARC dans les 26 zones. = Cette mise en place des camps FARC dans toutes ces zones me font grandement penser au programme des NU sur les Strong-Cities.

 Le 16 janvier, le Congrès devrait s’attaquer à deux textes de loi d’une importance critique, et d’abord, le projet de loi sur le système intégré « vérité, justice et réparation », y compris la juridiction spéciale pour la paix; la commission « vérité » et l’unité de recherche des personnes disparues.  Le deuxième texte est un nouvel article de la Constitution sur les dispositions de l’accord de paix relatives au droit international humanitaire et aux droits fondamentaux reconnus par la Constitution. = Les familles de toutes ses victimes, quels sont leurs droits et où est la justice? Sans justice, il ne peut y avoir de paix!

Le bilan de ces trois premiers mois est « très favorable », a affirmé le représentant de la Colombie, qui a dit la détermination de son pays à s’acquitter au plus vite des aspects administratifs, logistiques et juridiques nécessaires au bon fonctionnement de la Mission.  Le représentant n’a pas caché la difficulté de déployer des forces et de reconstruire dans des zones dépourvues de routes, d’eau et d’électricité.  Le Vice-Ministre des affaires étrangères de l’Ukraine a souhaité que toutes les forces politiques et tous les acteurs de la société civile colombienne participent à la mise en œuvre de l’accord de paixCe processus historique est un exemple pour le monde entier, a renchéri la représentante de la Colombie, avant que son homologue de l’Italie ne mentionne la conférence organisée à Rome en décembre 2016 qui a abouti à la conclusion de trois accords de coopération bilatérale avec la Colombie.  Ses homologues de l’Ukraine, de l’Uruguay, de la Bolivie et de l’Italie ont appelé à rétablir au plus vite les droits de l’enfant, en rouvrant les écoles, en élargissant l’accès à la santé et en facilitant le regroupement familial.

Norvège : déploiement inédit et contesté de plusieurs centaines de marines américains

300 soldats américains sont arrivés en Norvège

Après le déploiement de milliers de soldats américains en Europe de l'Est, 300 marines sont arrivés en Norvège pour être stationnés par rotation dans ce pays qui s'était pourtant engagé à ne pas accueillir de troupes étrangères permanentes.

Plusieurs centaines de soldats américains du Corps des marines ont débarqué le 16 janvier en Norvège avec armes et bagages sur l'aéroport de Vaernes, près de Trondheim, selon des images de la télévision norvégienne. La mission s'étendra sur un an, le contingent actuel étant renouvelé au bout de six mois.

«Pendant les quatre premières semaines, [les marines américains] recevront un entrainement hivernal basique, ils apprendront à utiliser des skis et à survivre dans l'environnement arctique», a pour sa part détaillé Rune Haarstad, porte-parole des Home Guards, la force de réaction rapide de l'armée norvégienne. «Cela n'a rien à voir avec la Russie», a-t-il indiqué tout en ajoutant qu'en mars prochain, ces marines américains participeront aux exercices militaires conjoints Viking, qui comprendront également des troupes britanniques.

C'est la première fois depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale que des troupes étrangères sont autorisées à stationner dans le pays scandinave, qui partage une frontière avec la Russie. Avant de devenir membre fondateur de l'OTAN en 1949, la Norvège s'était en effet engagée auprès de l'URSS à ne pas accueillir sur son territoire des forces de combat étrangères permanentes.

Les responsables norvégiens assurent que le déploiement des soldats américains en Scandinavie n'a rien à voir avec les inquiétudes manifestées par l'OTAN à propos d'une prétendue «agression russe». Annoncé en octobre 2016, le déploiement des marines en Norvège coïncide néanmoins avec l'envoi de centaines de chars et de plusieurs milliers de soldats américains en Pologne et dans d'autres pays d'Euope de l'Est. Un très important renforcement de la présence militaire de l'Alliance dans les pays baltes et en Pologne a en effet été décidé lors du sommet de l'OTAN à Varsovie en 2016.

color=red]Le déploiement d'unités américaines en Europe : «un sérieux déséquilibre dans la répartition des forces» [/color]

Selon le gouvernement norvégien, il n'y a pas de rupture avec son engagement de ne pas accueillir de troupes étrangères de manière permanente sur son territoire. En effet, pour Oslo, le déploiement de troupes par rotation n'équivaut pas à l'ouverture d'une base américaine permanente. Cependant, c'est ce même type de raisonnement qui est systématiquement appliqué par l'OTAN à tous ses déploiements en Europe de l'Est, comme un moyen de contourner un accord avec Moscou qui interdit le déploiement permanent de forces «importantes» près de la Russie.

«Les plans américains en cours de réalisation d'un déploiement d'ampleur de forces armées en Europe ont un grand potentiel destructeur pour l'ensemble de l'architecture de sécurité, créant une nouvelle réalité politico-militaire et introduisant un sérieux déséquilibre dans la répartition des forces sur le continent», a pour sa part déclaré la porte-parole de la diplomatie russe, Maria Zakharova.

«De fait, Washington lance une nouvelle course aux armements en essayant de nous entraîner dans une confrontation semblable à celle qui existait du temps de la guerre froide», a-t-elle encore ajouté.

L'OTAN PREPARE 300 000 SOLDATS A INTERVENIR EN URGENCE DANS LES PAYS BALTES

L'OTAN pépare 300 000 soldats à intervenir en urgence dans les pays baltes

Des soldats américains lors d'une exercice militaire de l'OTAN en Bulgarie, en 2016

Le secrétaire général de l'Alliance atlantique a révélé qu'une vaste force militaire était entraînée dans le but d'intervenir en deux mois dans les pays baltes, en raison de la menace que représenterait selon lui Moscou pour leur sécurité.

L'OTAN est en alerte : son secrétaire général, Jens Stoltenberg, a annoncé au journal britannique The Times du 7 novembre que l'Alliance atlantique préparait une force militaire à répondre en urgence – en deux mois – à une éventuelle agression militaire russe contre les pays baltes (Lettonie, Lituanie et Estonie).

Si le dirigeant de l'organisation militaire n'a pas souhaité préciser l'envergure des troupes en question, le représentant permanent du Royaume-Uni auprès de l'OTAN avance le chiffre de 300 000 soldats – un nombre de combattants que l'Alliance ne pourrait pas déployer aujourd'hui en moins de six mois.

«Nous avons constaté une implication militaire russe plus nette qu'avant au cours de ces dernières années : le triplement des dépenses en matière de Défense depuis 2000, le développement de nouvelles compétences militaires, l'entraînement et l'utilisation des forces militaires de la Russie contre ses voisins...», a invoqué Jens Stoltenberg pour justifier cette effervescence de l'Alliance atlantique sur le continent européen. «Nous avons également vu la Russie diffuser de la propagande en Europe parmi les alliés de l'OTAN et c'est exactement pour cela que l'OTAN répond», a également avancé le haut responsable.

Ce plan d'accroissement des capacités de déploiement d'urgence de l'organisation militaire, a-t-il expliqué, a été validé en octobre dernier, à l'issue de discussions des ministres de la Défense des pays membres de l'OTAN.

Un plan faisant suite au renforcement de la présence de l'OTAN aux portes de la Russie

Lors de son sommet de juillet dernier à Varsovie, l'OTAN avait déjà annoncé le déploiement de 1 000 soldats en Pologne, en plus de l'envoi de quatre bataillons de 4 000 hommes au total dans les pays baltes, invoquant, toujours, une potentielle menace russe contre les alliés européens de l'Alliance. Ce déploiement de troupes aux frontières de la Russie, de même que les insinuations (ou franches accusations) des dirigeants de l'OTAN à propos des prétendues ambitions guerrières de Moscou, ont été vivement critiqués et à de nombreuses reprises par les responsables russes.

«L'OTAN continue de voir le monde politico-militaire à travers une sorte de miroir déformant», avait ainsi regretté le chef de la diplomatie russe Sergueï Lavrov, peu après le sommet de Varsovie, avant d'ajouter : «Contrairement à l'intérêt objectif de maintenir la paix et la stabilité en Europe [...] l'Alliance concentre ses efforts sur la dissuasion d'une menace venant de l'est qui n'existe pas».

USS MICHAEL MURPHY DEPLYS TO WESTERN PACIFIC

From Commander, Navy Region Hawaii Public Affairs

PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Michael Murphy (DDG 112) departed Pearl Harbor for a regularly-scheduled deployment with the Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, Jan. 13 .

Michael Murphy deployed with a crew of approximately 320 Sailors and a detachment of MH-60R Sea Hawk helicopters from the "Easyriders" of Helicopter Maritime Squadron (HSM) 37, based out of Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, who trained for months to earn deployment certification.

"The crew has worked tirelessly in preparation for this deployment," said Cmdr. Robert A. Heely, Jr., commanding officer, Michael Murphy. "'Team Murphy' will be challenged with diverse mission sets within the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. Their resiliency will be tested, but they are up to the task and are ready to perform as part of Carrier Strike Group 1."

While deployed, the Carl Vinson CSG will remain under U.S. 3rd Fleet command and control, including beyond the international dateline which previously divided operational areas of responsibility for 3rd and 7th Fleets. Third Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets. This operational concept allows both numbered fleets to complement one another and provide the foundation of stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

"Our forward presence contributes to freedom of navigation and lawful use of the sea, as well as furthers operational training and enabling the exchange of culture, skills, and tactical knowledge," said Rear Adm. James W. Kilby, commander, CSG 1.

The Carl Vinson CSG will report to U.S. 3rd Fleet, headquartered in San Diego, while deployed in the western Pacific as part of the U.S. Pacific Fleet-led initiative to extend the command and control functions of 3rd Fleet into the region.

Aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 2, and embarked Destroyer Squadron (CDS) 1 deployed from San Diego, Jan. 5 with Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain (CG 57) and USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108).

The Carl Vinson CSG deployed with approximately 7,500 Sailors and will focus on maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts. The strike group assets will conduct bilateral exercises in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to include anti-submarine warfare, maneuvering drills, gunnery exercises, and visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) subject matter expert exchanges .

NAVY RESERVISTS SUPPORT THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION

Story Number: NNS170113-15Release Date: 1/13/2017 6:29:00 PM

By Lt. j.g. Jill Brown, Joint Task Force National Capital Region

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Ninety-seven Navy Reservists are among the approximately 820 service members of the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region who are supporting the 5,000 service members filling ceremonial and support roles this month at the 58th Presidential Inauguration.

The 10-day inaugural period runs from Jan. 15 to Jan. 24, with the inauguration itself set for Jan. 20 at the U.S. Capitol.
The Navy Reservists are located in most of the Joint Teams, which are in charge of making sure the marching bands and other musical units, color guards, salute batteries and honor cordons. Others provide support in other areas, such as logistics, medicine, personnel management, public affairs, special-event management and transportation.

"Working with our brothers and sisters from the other branches of service has been one of the best parts about JTF-NCR," said Logistics Specialist 1st Class Tara Goodell, a Navy Reservist from Navy Operational Support Center Nashville, Tennessee. She is one of eight Sailors assigned to the special events branch, which coordinates with the Department of Defense, United States Secret Service and other agencies on the opening ceremony, dinners and Inaugural Balls to be hosted by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

The special events branch chief is Lt. Cmdr. Terrell Ringer of NOSC Baltimore, who supported President George W. Bush's inauguration in 2001.

"Special Events is prepared for every situation and contingency," Ringer said.

With that in mind, JTF NCR has ordered 5,000 tents and 5,000 meals ready to eat, along with the equipment to keep workers warm and fed during the inaugural period.

The largest Navy Reserve contingent includes 56 executive drivers, each of whom completed 120 hours of geographic familiarization training, plus classes in traffic safety, first aid and self-defense.

Being an executive driver for the inauguration provides the unique experience of working in a joint environment in direct support of Military Assistants and dignitaries, said Master at Arms 2nd Class Kathysue Todd of NOSC Tampa, Florida. Todd said she looked forward to showing off the training she received from the U.S. Navy.

Navy Reservists are also part of a 72-person public affairs team, including public affairs officers and mass communication specialists, responsible for informing the American people about U.S. military role in the inauguration.

Chief Mass Communication Specialist Kathleen Gorby of NOSC Norfolk is the graphics and design chief.

"All of the Navy personnel, unlike the Air Force, Marines or Army, are reservists," she said. "This brings a unique blend of perspectives to the inaugural staff."

The senior Navy officer onboard is Capt. Stephen Rankin, an active-duty officer who began his JTF NCR assignment in March, occupying one of 13 permanent Navy billets on the task force.
Chief Information Systems Technician Leon Moore is JTF NCR's senior enlisted adviser.

The inaugural experience has given him the opportunity to interact with and support civilian and military personnel from the Army, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, as well as from a variety of government agencies, Moore said - and it is just one of many examples of the professionalism of the JTF NCR joint team.

L’ARMEE TAÏWANAISE SIMULE UNE ATTAQUE CHINOISE

Depuis 2 jours 17 janvier 2017


Asie et Afrique - Chine

L’armée taïwanaise a donné mardi le coup d’envoi de deux jours de manoeuvres simulant une attaque chinoise, les autorités de l’île s’efforçant de rassurer la population dans un contexte de dégradations des relations avec Pékin.

Chars, hélicoptères et pièces d’artillerie étaient mobilisés pour ces exercices annuels dans le centre de l’île.

« L’armée a pris des mesures pour gérer la situation dans le Détroit de Taïwan et en mer de Chine méridionale », a déclaré le porte-parole du ministère de la Défense, Chen Chung-chi. « La population peut être rassurée. »

Ces manoeuvres simulent une situation où des vaisseaux chinois franchiraient la ligne médiane du bras de mer séparant l’île de la Chine.

Taïwan est coupé politiquement du reste de la Chine depuis la fin de la guerre civile en 1949. Le territoire se gouverne seul mais n’est pas reconnu par l’ONU.

La Chine interdit ainsi à tout pays avec lequel elle a des relations diplomatiques d’en avoir simultanément avec Taïwan: c’est le principe de la « Chine unique ».

Les manoeuvres taïwanaises interviennent une semaine après le passage dans le Détroit du seul porte-avions chinois, interprété comme une démonstration de force de Pékin dans un contexte de tensions diplomatiques, peu après le passage aux Etats-Unis de la présidente taïwanaise Tsai Ing-wen, issue d’une formation hostile à Pékin.

Dans un entretien au journal Wall Street Journal la semaine dernière, Donald Trump avait indiqué être prêt à le remettre en cause, estimant que « tout était sur la table, y compris la Chine unique ».

A la mi-décembre, M. Trump avait déjà menacé de ne plus reconnaître ce principe, pourtant respecté par les Etats-Unis depuis 1979, lorsque Washington avait coupé ses liens officiels avec Taïwan.

Pékin s’alarme de l’arrivée à la Maison Blanche du bouillant milliardaire.

Début décembre, ce dernier avait rompu avec quatre décennies de politique américaine en prenant un appel téléphonique de Mme Tsaï, alors que la Chine interdit tout contact officiel entre ses partenaires étrangers et des dirigeants de Taïwan.

La Chine n’a jamais renoncé à la possibilité de recourir à la force pour rétablir sa souveraineté sur l’île, séparée politiquement du Continent depuis 1949.

ARLINGTON, Va. (NNS) -- Battlefield commanders face many scenarios requiring fast decisions -- attacking an enemy position, evacuating injured warfighters, navigating unfamiliar terrain. Each situation pushes leaders to make quick, yet informed choices.

To enhance these decision-making capabilities, especially for small-unit leaders, the 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines (2/6) -- "The Spartans" -- recently held a weeklong exercise called Spartan Emerging Technology and Innovation Week at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The event, also called Spartan Week, featured various training technologies, from quadcopters to augmented reality, developed with support from the Office of Naval Research to accelerate the development of decision-making skills.

"We are working with 2/6 to develop a suite of new training tools that are easy to implement, tailorable to Marines' needs, and include the ability to assess decision-making skills," said Dr. Peter Squire, a program officer in ONR's expeditionary maneuver warfare and combating terrorism department. "Exercises like Spartan Week enable the Marine Corps to better examine the use of training technologies to improve tactical decision making at the small-unit level."

During Spartan Week, Marines used several ONR-sponsored technologies. These included the Interactive Tactical Decision Game (I-TDG) with an associated augmented-reality headset, the Augmented Immersive Team Trainer (AITT), and a quadcopter-based system for surveying and modeling terrain quickly.

I-TDG is a web technology-based application which allows Marines to plan missions and conduct "what if" tactical-decision games or simulation-based exercises. It supports maps and multimedia tools and links to ONR's HoloLens augmented-reality headset.

AITT comprises a laptop, software and battery pack, and helmet-mounted display, and can support forward-observer training in live field environments. It employs augmented-reality technology, which inserts virtual objects into a real environment to create realistic tactical scenarios -- including friendly and opposing ground vehicles, aircraft, and battlefield effects such as explosions from mortar shells and artillery.

To rapidly develop terrain models to support these technologies, Marines were trained to operate a prototype, quadcopter-based terrain-mapping system. Two Camp Lejeune training sites were flown over and mapped out, and the resulting imagery was used to build terrain models for the training systems.

"Small-unit leaders are tasked with making big mission decisions in an extremely short time window," said Natalie Steinhauser, a senior research psychologist at Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division in Orlando, Florida, who took part in Spartan Week. "These decisions not only impact the success or failure of a mission, they affect life and death. With technologies like I-TDG, Marines can perform simulated missions in a safe classroom environment, carry out multiple missions, and even use I-TDG as an after-action review tool."

Steinhauser said Camp Lejeune's Spartan Week was a success and another event will be held at another location early this year. Perhaps the real measures of success, however, are endorsements from Marines who participated.

"For me, the best part of I-TDG was re-creating simulated battles we conducted during past field exercises and using the system as a debrief on what we did wrong and how we could be better," said Lt. Andrew Veal. "Like athletes watching game film, you really experienced that 'a-ha' moment."

"The Spartan Week technology enabled all Marines, from squad leaders to riflemen, to evaluate their ability to make fast decisions," said Cpl. Fredrick Zuberer. "Marines tend to focus on using their bodies as weapons, but the most important weapon is the mind. Spartan Week helped sharpen that weapon beyond just pulling a trigger."

CARTER HALL TRAINS FOR EVACUATION OPERATIONS

Story Number: NNS170119-13Release Date: 1/19/2017 2:20:00 PM

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Darren M. Moore, USS Carter Hall (LSD 50) Public Affairs

ATLANTIC OCEAN (NNS) -- Sailors and Marines aboard amphibious dock landing ship USS Carter Hall (LSD 50) participated in a Non-combatant Evacuation Operation (NEO) exercise Jan. 16 , while underway for Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) .

Crew members trained on how to respond in the event the ship would need to provide refuge to U.S. citizens if needed during its upcoming deployment.

Carter Hall Executive Officer, Cmdr. Brian K. Hamel, from Kalamazoo, Michigan, said the training was important because a NEO is a likely scenario for Carter Hall.

"Ultimately our job is to protect U.S. citizens overseas," Hamel said. "We're here to ensure that if something happens we can get them into a relatively safe environment; and we'll get them here and we'll take care of them."

During the NEO exercise, 15 Marines with 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) acted as U.S. citizens who were evacuated from an American embassy and in need of care and assistance. The roles ranged from small children to older citizens.

"We're often in environments where they would need to do evacuations," Hamel said. "As American citizens our job is to bring them on American soil. Carter Hall is 605 feet of U.S. territory at sea."

The evacuee role players began on Carter Hall's flight deck, as though they were delivered via helicopter. Crew members then escorted them to the vehicle stowage area (VSA) where stations were set up for in-processing, medical screenings and assistance.

Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Matthew R. DeJesus, from Bradenton, Florida, said the medical team performed and communicated well during the exercise. The evacuees simulated illnesses and trauma injuries such as gun shot wounds.

"The importance of having medical personnel available is because a lot of times in these NEOs there are people that have medical conditions or have had trauma," DeJesus said. "They need to be screened as they could have some medical conditions that could affect the people that are on the ship. We need to make sure that we're taking care of them and their needs, while also protecting our ship staff and ship riders from any possible dangers from personnel coming on board."

DeJesus said everyone worked together and learned a lot of valuable information for future NEOs.

Cpl. Jeffery D. Ott, from Farmville, Virginia, acted as an 8-year-old boy during the exercise. He said he could not imagine an 8-year-old coming aboard a ship, but that the crew was very comforting and well organized.

"It was good training," Ott said. "I think we gave them a pretty good picture of what it would be like."

Carter Hall is underway with the Bataan Amphibious Readiness Group participating in COMPTUEX, in preparation of a scheduled upcoming deployment.

NOUVEAU RECORD D'EXPORTATIONS D'ARMEMENTS FRANCAIS EN 2016

19 janv. 2017, 20:06

Nouveau record d'exportations d'armements français en 2016

Rafale

Les exportations d'armements français ont atteint un nouveau record en 2016, à plus de 20 milliards d'euros, grâce à la vente à l'Inde du chasseur Rafale et au contrat conclu avec l'Australie pour des sous-marins.

Ces exportations – mesurées en prises de commandes – avaient déjà atteint quelque 17 milliards d'euros en 2015, grâce aux premiers contrats de vente du chasseur Rafale à l'étranger, soit plus du double de l'année précédente.

«En 2015 nous avons réalisé le chiffre historique de 17 milliards d'euros d'exportations. Pour 2016 le bilan n'est pas encore consolidé [...] mais nous avons atteint un nouveau sommet avec plus de 20 milliards d'euros de prises de commandes», a déclaré le ministre de la Défense, Jean-Yves Le Drian, en prononçant ses voeux aux armées.

Ces ventes record sont dues à «de nouveaux succès à l'exportation», a souligné le ministre. «Je pense aux Rafale, je pense à la conclusion du plus grand contrat de l'histoire de l'export français avec l'Australie», a-t-il ajouté.

Au terme de longues négociations, l'Inde avait conclu en septembre l'achat de 36 avions de combat Rafale, fabriqués par le groupe Dassault. Après des débuts difficiles à l'exportation, le Rafale avait trouvé pour la première fois preneur en 2015 au Qatar et en Egypte. Chaque pays avait acquis 24 appareils.

Autre succès : le choix par l'Australie du constructeur français DCNS pour renouveler sa flotte de sous-marins, un contrat géant de près de 40 milliards de dollars américains pour la construction de 12 submersibles.

«Notre équipe, votre équipe a créé des dizaines de milliers d'emplois en France et continue en même temps à garantir l'autonomie stratégique et l'indépendance de notre pays», s'est félicité Jean-Yves Le Drian.

La «qualité des matériels français» et leur emploi par l'armée française sur les théâtres d'opérations extérieurs jouent un rôle clef dans ces succès à l'exportation, estime le ministère.

La France est engagée avec ses chasseurs Rafale et Mirage dans les opérations aériennes de la coalition internationale contre le groupe Etat islamique en Irak et Syrie. Elle conduit aussi une opération antiterroriste (Barkhane) dans cinq pays du Sahel.

MATTIS TAKES OATH AS 26th DEFENSE SECRETARY

Story Number: NNS170121-01Release Date: 1/21/2017 9:46:00 AM

By Jim Garamone

DoD News, Defense Media Activity


70120-D-N0101-0101 WASHINGTON (Jan. 20, 2017) The Honorable James Mattis took office as the 26th secretary of defense shortly after his Senate confirmation. (Dept. of Defense photo/Released)

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- By a 98-1 vote, the Senate confirmed retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis to be the 26th secretary of defense Jan. 20, and Vice President Michael R. Pence administered his oath of office shortly afterward.R. Pence administered his oath of office shortly afterward.

Mattis is the first retired general officer to hold the position since General of the Army George C. Marshall in the early 1950s. Congress passed a waiver for the retired four-star general to serve in the position, because law requires former service members to have been out of uniform for at least seven years to serve as defense secretary. Mattis retired from the Marine Corps in 2013.

Three-War Veteran

Mattis is a veteran of the Gulf War and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His military career culminated with service as commander of U.S. Central Command.

The secretary was born in Washington State and raised in Richland, Washington, graduating from high school there in 1968 and enlisting in the Marine Corps the following year. He was commissioned in the Marine Corps in 1972 after graduating from Central Washington University.

He served as a rifle and weapons platoon commander, and as a lieutenant colonel, he commanded the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines in Operation Desert Storm. In Afghanistan, he commanded some of the first troops to go into the country. In the Iraq war, he commanded the 1st Marine Division in the drive to Baghdad in 2003.

He was instrumental in publishing the Army and Marine Corps counterinsurgency manual when he served at Marine Corps Developmental Command in Quantico, Virginia. He then commanded the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force before being chosen for four-star rank as the commander of U.S. Joint Forces Command and NATO's Allied Command Transformation in 2007. He was named Centcom commander 2010.

Study of War

Mattis is a student of the study of war. Former Defense Secretary William S. Cohen called Mattis "a man of thought as well as action," when he introduced him at the Senate Armed Services Committee confirmation hearing last week.

The world is awash in change, Mattis told the committee. "Our country is still at war in Afghanistan, and our troops are fighting against [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] and other terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere," he said. "Russia is raising grave concerns on several fronts, and China is shredding trust along its periphery."

The "islands of stability" in the world are under attack by nonstate actors and rogue nations, Mattis said. "Our armed forces in this world must remain the best-led, the best-equipped and the most lethal in the world," he added.

He told the committee that he will be "the strongest possible advocate for military and civilian personnel and their families" and that he will "foster an atmosphere of harmony and trust at the department with our interagency partners and the congressional committees."

Alliances Important

The secretary told the committee that alliances and collaborations with other countries are a necessity in this changing world. "History is clear," he said. "Nations with strong allies thrive, and those without them wither."

Mattis said his priority as defense secretary will be to strengthen military readiness, strengthen U.S. alliances and bring business reforms to the Defense Department.

"Our military is the envy of the world, representing America's awesome determination to defend herself," he said. "Working with you, I will endeavor to keep our unique all volunteer force second to none."

US President Donald Trump, in a phone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, underscored the importance of military, intelligence cooperation between the United States and Israel and reaffirmed commitment to Israel's security, the White House said in a statement.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — According to the statement, in a conversation held earlier on Sunday, Trump and Netanyahu agreed to further discuss a number of regional issues.

"The President emphasized the importance the United States places on our close military, intelligence, and security cooperation with Israel, which reflects the deep and abiding partnership between our countries… The President affirmed his unprecedented commitment to Israel's security and stressed that countering ISIL [Daesh] and other radical Islamic terrorist groups will be a priority for his Administration," the statement read.

The statement also said that Trump stressed the importance of direct negotiations between Israel and Palestine that have been embroiled in a bitter territorial dispute for decades and offered US assistance to help solve that conflict.

The statement confirmed that Trump had invited Netanyahu to Washington in February, which was reported earlier in the day by the Israeli Prime Minister's press service.

Officials tell AP: Obama defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the PA in the final hours of his administration.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama defied Republican opposition and quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA) in the final hours of his administration, officials told The Associated Press on Monday.

Republican members of Congress had been holding up the money to the PA, but a State Department official and several congressional aides said the outgoing administration formally notified Congress it would spend the money Friday morning, just before Donald Trump became president.

More than $227 million in foreign affairs funding was released at the time, including $4 million for climate change programs and $1.25 million for UN organizations, according to AP.

The Obama administration had for some time been pressing for the release of the money for the Palestinian Authority, which comes from the U.S. Agency for International Development and is to be used for humanitarian aid in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, to support political and security reforms as well as help prepare for good governance and the rule of law in a future Palestinian state, according to the notification sent to Congress quoted by the news agency.

The official and the aides spoke to AP on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Last March it was reported that members of Congress were delaying a payment of $159 million in aid allocated for the PA in an effort to pressure the PA to relaunch negotiations with Israel.

That was not the first time that the United States’ aid to the PA has made headlines in recent years. Washington has several times cut – and subsequently resumed – the financial aid to the PA.

Previously, this issue made headlines was when the PA unilaterally applied to join the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Obama administration indicated at the time it was reviewing its annual $440 million aid package to the PA because of the decision.

Republican Senator Rand Paul later introduced a bill that would immediately halt aid to the PA until it halts its effort to join the ICC.

In September of 2011, a $192 million aid package was frozen by Congress after the PA submitted a failed unilateral bid for United Nations membership.

In April of 2012, Obama bypassed a Congress block and signed a waiver declaring that aid to the Palestinian Authority is “important to the security interests of the United States.

OTAN : LE MINISTRE AMERICAIN DE LA DEFENSE ASSURE DE L'ENGAGEMENT "INEBRANLABLE" DE WASHINGTON  (PENTAGONE)

Washington - Le ministre américain de la Défense James Mattis a affirmé lundi lors d'un appel avec son homologue britannique Michael Fallon que l'engagement des Etats-Unis envers l'Otan était "inébranlable", a rapporté le porte-parole du Pentagone dans un communiqué.

"Le ministre Mattis a insisté sur le fait que les Etats-Unis et le Royaume-Uni jouiront toujours d'une relation exceptionnellement proche, visible dans nos liens en matière de défense qui sont le socle de la sûreté américaine", a indiqué Jeff Davis.

"Il a aussi insisté sur l'engagement inébranlable des Etats-Unis envers l'Otan", a-t-il poursuivi. La Première ministre britannique Theresa May sera vendredi le premier dirigeant étranger à rencontrer le nouveau président américain Donald Trump, exactement une semaine après l'investiture de ce dernier.

Pendant sa campagne électorale, le président républicain a estimé que l'Alliance atlantique était "obsolète".

Dans un entretien au Financial Times publié vendredi, Mme May s'était déclarée confiante en l'avenir des relations entre Londres et Washington et s'était dite convaincue que M. Trump reconnaitrait "l'importance" de l'Otan.

Les deux ministres de la Défense se sont également engagés à travailler ensemble dans les prochains mois, en s'accordant "sur le maintien de l'objectif d'éliminer (le groupe jihadiste Etat islamique) EI", a indiqué le porte-parole du Pentagone.

M. Mattis s'est également entretenu par téléphone avec le secrétaire général de l'Otan Jens Stoltenberg "pour reprendre contact et discuter du rôle clef joué par l'Otan dans la sécurité transatlantique".

Selon le communiqué du Pentagone, le nouveau ministre américain "voulait passer cet appel à son premier jour complet en fonctions pour renforcer l'importance qu'il attache à l'Alliance".

M. Mattis a été commandant suprême du Commandement allié de transformation (SACT) de l'Alliance atlantique, entre 2007 et 2009.

Il a insisté auprès de M. Stoltenberg sur le fait qu'"en cherchant des alliés pour aider à défendre les valeurs (communes), les Etats-Unis commençaient toujours par l'Europe".

M. Stoltenberg avait indiqué le 18 novembre, après sa première conversation avec M. Trump --élu le 8 novembre--, avoir eu "une bonne discussion" sur l'avenir de l'Otan et l'importance d'"une hausse des dépenses de défense" des pays alliés.

Mais le premier appel téléphonique de M. Mattis avec l'un de ses homologues a été avec le Canadien Harjit Sajjan, a précisé le communiqué du Pentagone.

Les deux hommes sont convenus de "l'importance vitale" de l'engagement de leurs pays envers le commandement militaire chargé de la sécurité aérienne des Etats-Unis et du Canada, le Norad, et évoqué également l'importance des relations entre les Etats-Unis, la Canada et le Mexique pour la défense en Amérique du Nord.

GEORGE H.W. BUSH CARRIER STRIKE GROUP DEPARTS FOR THIRD DEPLOYMENT

Story Number: NNS170123-17Release Date: 1/23/2017 9:51:00 AM

From USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) Public Affairs

NORFOLK (NNS) -- George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group (GHWBCSG) departed for its third deployment, Jan. 21.

The strike group, led by aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), and its nearly 6,000 Sailors will conduct operations in the U.S. Navy's 5th and 6th Fleet areas of responsibility.

The deployment is part of an ongoing rotation of U.S. forces supporting maritime security operations in international waters around the world.

Working with allied and partner maritime forces, GHWBCSG units will focus heavily on maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts which help establish conditions for regional security.

"The flexibility of our maritime force is second to none," said Rear Adm. Kenneth R. Whitesell, commander, CSG 2. "We've trained and we're ready to operate and fight decisively, and we embody the core attributes of the Navy of integrity, accountability, initiative, and toughness. We are ready, and I am proud to lead this force."

GHWBCSG includes embarked squadrons Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 8 and Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 22.

GHWB spent the last five months conducting intensive training and certification exercises to establish a safe, cohesive organization capable of performing a wide variety of missions across the globe, ranging from counter-piracy and ground support operations to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

This is the third deployment for the Navy's last Nimitz-class, nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which recently became combat-ready after the successful completion of Composite Unit Training Exercise (COMPTUEX).

"We are absolutely ready to go," said Capt. Will Pennington, CVN 77's commanding officer. "In addition to the local Navy infrastructure, there is a tremendous amount of support that's required to get this done; a lot of DoD (Department of Defense) civilians and other entities, and we have gotten fabulous support from them. Our readiness to go today is a testament to them, as well as our Sailors that are on board."

GHWB was commissioned Jan. 10, 2009, as the 10th and final Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. Named after the 41st U.S. President, George H.W. Bush is the only aircraft carrier in the fleet with a living namesake.

Story Number: NNS170123-10Release Date: 1/23/2017 8:58:00 AM
 
By Lt. j.g. Jack Dembowski, Continuing Promise 2017 Public Affairs

MAYPORT, Fla. (NNS) -- USNS Spearhead (T-EPF 1), a Military Sealift Command-operated expeditionary fast transport vessel, with embarked civilian mariner crew and U.S. military personnel, arrived in Mayport, Florida, Jan. 19, to begin preparations for Continuing Promise 2017 (CP-17).

CP-17 is a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored, and U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command (USNAVSO)/ U.S. 4th Fleet (FOURTHFLT) conducted deployment focused on civil-military operations including humanitarian-civic assistance activities comprised of medical, dental, and veterinary support, as well as disaster response to partner nations. These efforts are meant to show U.S. commitment to her Central and South American partners.

The embarked command element, led by Commander Destroyer Squadron 40 (CDS 40) and various supporting detachments, will deploy to the U.S. Southern Command area of responsibility (AOR) from January to April 2017 in support of CP-17. The ship will visit Guatemala, Honduras, and Colombia.

Spearhead arrived in Mayport to conduct final preparations and a rehearsal of the "tent city" setup. Tent city is the term given to the living environment that the forces will see on the ground. This includes several tents for housing accommodations, as well as a mobile kitchen trailer for meals.

Lt. Cmdr Robert Lennon, CP-17 medical officer in charge, said, "The rehearsal is critical to work out any last-minute challenges and prepare as a crew to execute our mission. Our ability to execute CP-17 effectively is dependent on working as a team and practicing our plans to offer high quality medical care to as many host nation citizens as possible."

This is the first time USNS Spearhead will be used to support the Continuing Promise mission. Setting up Tent City and rehearsing the operational tempo for the medical sites on the ground in each nation will allow the team to increase efficiency and provide more training for participants.

CP-17 participants will work alongside local government officials and medical professionals from the host nation to meet the day-to-day needs of communities, and increase collective preparedness for disaster response and contingency operations.

"I was fortunate enough to play a part in the highly successful Continuing Promise 2015," said Capt. Errin Armstrong, CP-17 mission commander. "I hope to see the same level of success this year. We will do our best to ensure this mission is completed safely while providing the best healthcare to as many citizens as possible."

Spearhead will depart Mayport early next week to begin Continuing Promise 2017. An estimated 15,000 patients will be treated during CP-17 from January to April.

U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. 4th Fleet support U.S. Southern Command's joint and combined military operations by employing maritime forces in cooperative maritime security operations to maintain access, enhance interoperability and build enduring partnerships in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central, and South American regions.

NAVAL HOSPITAL JACKSONVILLE STAFF DEPLOY WITH CONTINUING PROMISE 2017

Story Number: NNS170123-01Release Date: 1/23/2017 7:57:00 AM  

By Yan Kennon, Naval Hospital Jacksonville Public Affairs


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Jan. 5, 2016) " Lt. Cmdr. Robert Lennon, a family medicine physician at Naval Hospital Jacksonville and medical site officer-in-charge for Continuing Promise 2017 (CP-17), checks a patient™s ear for possible inflammation. Lennon will oversee roughly 80 medical personnel, who will provide treatment for about 15,000 host nation citizens in Colombia, Guatemala, and Honduras during CP-17 (from January through April). CP-17 is a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored and U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/ U.S. 4th Fleet-conducted deployment to conduct civil-military operations including humanitarian assistance and humanitarian civic assistance, training engagements, medical, dental, and veterinary support and disaster response to partner nations and to show U.S. support and commitment to Central and South America.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Approximately 58 Naval Hospital (NH) Jacksonville staff are preparing to deploy in support of Continuing Promise 2017 (CP-17).

CP-17 will provide medical and dental care, preventive medicine, and veterinary consulting in Colombia, Guatemala, and Honduras from January through April.

"Naval Hospital Jacksonville staff stand ready to deliver world-class medical care for Continuing Promise 17," said Capt. David Collins, NH Jacksonville commanding officer. "We have the responsibility and privilege of supporting DoD (Department of Defense) missions around the globe, while also providing care on the homefront."

Lt. Cmdr. Robert Lennon, a family medicine physician at NH Jacksonville, is the medical site officer in charge for CP-17. Lennon will oversee roughly 80 medical personnel, who will provide treatment for about 15,000 host nation citizens throughout the deployment.

This will be the sixth medical mission for Capt. William Todd, NH Jacksonville executive officer and pediatric orthopedic surgeon, who is part of the advance team for CP-17. Todd previously served with Pacific Partnership 2008, Operation Unified Response in 2010, Continuing Promise 2011, Continuing Promise 2013, and Continuing Promise 2015.

As part of pre-deployment site surveys for CP-17, U.S. and partner nation planners worked with local professionals to develop specific plans for each mission stop, based on the needs of the communities. Each visit will include sharing best practices with host nation partners. Building on relationships created in previous years, CP-17 will increase the capacities of countries and communities to provide for themselves. Continuing Promise is a U.S. Southern Command training mission introduced in 2007.

NH Jacksonville's priority since its founding in 1941 is to heal the nation's heroes and their families. The command is comprised of the Navy's third largest hospital and five branch health clinics across Florida and Georgia. Of its patient population -- 163,000 active and retired Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, guardsmen, and their families -- about 85,000 are enrolled with a primary care manager and Medical Home Port team at one of its facilities.

US NAVY SYNTHETICALLY RECREATES BIOMATERIAL TO ASIST MILITARY PERSONNEL

Story Number: NNS170124-04Release Date: 1/24/2017 8:50:00 AM   

By Katherine Mapp, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Panama City Division Office of Congressional and Public Affairs

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (NNS) -- A team of U.S. Navy scientists and engineers at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) have successfully recreated a natural material used for marine wildlife defense to assist military personnel.

Biochemist Dr. Josh Kogot and Materials Engineer Dr. Ryan Kincer have produced a synthetic component of hagfish slime from the alpha and gamma proteins of the Pacific hagfish.

The Pacific hagfish, also known as slime eels, are bottom-dwelling scavengers which live on the ocean floor. The hagfish can secrete slime to protect themselves by obstructing the gills of predators which come into contact with the slime.

According to Kincer, hagfish slime consists of two protein-based components -- a thread and a mucin.

"The coiled up thread behaves like a spring and quickly unravels upon contact with water due to stored energy," said Kincer. "The mucin binds to water and constrains the flow between the micro channels created by the thread dispersion. The interaction between the thread, mucin, and seawater creates a three-dimensional, viscoelastic network. Over time, the thread begins to collapse on itself, causing the slime to slowly dissipate. Studies have shown the hagfish secretion can expand up to 10,000 times its initial volume."

The hagfish slime thread has been compared to spider silk. Both are natural, renewable materials which could one day replace synthetic products derived from petroleum-based precursors. Kogot said the slime thread has comparable mechanical properties to Kevlar, a synthetic fiber used as a reinforcing agent for rubber products and protective gear.

During synthetic recreation, alpha and gamma proteins were produced in an Escherichia coli bacteria, or E.coli, where each protein was recovered from the bacteria after a series of isolation and purification steps. The alpha and gamma proteins were later combined together and rapidly assembled in a crosslinking solution. A sample of natural and synthetic hagfish threads were compared using a scanning electron microscope to visually confirm the production of the synthetic threads.

The intended use of the synthetic slime is to provide non-lethal and non-kinetic defense to the fleet.

"The synthetic hagfish slime may be used for ballistics protection, firefighting, anti-fouling, diver protection, or anti-shark spray," said Kogot. "The possibilities are endless. Our goal is to produce a substance that can act as non-lethal and non-kinetic defense to protect the warfighter."

Kincer said the addition of using a material such as the slime will be valuable to the U.S. Navy.

"Researchers have called the hagfish slime one of the most unique biomaterials known," said Kincer. "For the U.S. Navy to have its hands on it or a material that acts similar would be beneficial. From a tactical standpoint, it would be interesting to have a material that can change the properties of the water at dilute concentrations in a matter of seconds."

The effort to create new synthetic means to behave like the natural hagfish slime is supported by Navy Innovative Science and Engineering (NISE) funding and the Office of Naval Research Code 32, ocean battlespace sensing department. The team is researching ways to increase the slime's surface attachment capability, potential delivery systems, and enhanced stability in various environments. From there, Kogot and Kincer will continue to look for innovative applications and explore different variations and properties of the material.

They are currently working to increase the slime protein scale and improve protein assembly.

LA CHINE INSTALLE DES MISSILES INTERCONTINENTAUX A LA FRONTIERE RUSSE

Depuis 2 jours 24 janvier 2017



Asie et Afrique - Chine

no author

Selon un journal de Hong Kong, l’une des trois brigades chinoises de missiles intercontinentaux Dongfeng-41 (DF-41) aurait été déployée dans la province du Heilongjiang, dans le nord-est de la Chine, à la frontière russe.

Se référant à des photos des DF-41 publiées sur le Web, le quotidien hongkongais Pingguo ribao (Apple Daily) affirme que l’armée chinoise va déployer trois brigades de missiles Dongfeng-41 d’une portée de 14 000 km, dont la première aurait été déjà installée dans la ville de Xinyang, dans la province centrale du Henan.

Selon le journal, la deuxième brigade aurait été déployée dans la ville de Daqing, dans la province du Heilongjiang, et la troisième, dans la région autonome ouïghoure du Xinjiang.

En avril 2016, le ministère chinois de la Défense a refusé de dévoiler les caractéristiques du Dongfeng-41. Par la suite, il a annoncé un tir d’essai du missile qualifiant les tests sur son territoire de « processus normal ».

Des médias ont déjà communiqué que la Chine se proposait d’installer des missiles dans la province centrale du Henan. Selon Washington Free Beacon, des Dongfeng-41 tirés depuis cette province pourraient atteindre le territoire des États-Unis au bout de 30 minutes, ce qui représente une menace stratégique pour Washington. D’autant plus que le renseignement américain estime que le missile chinois est capable de porter jusqu’à 10 ogives.

En décembre dernier, la Chine a lancé un Dungfeng depuis une rampe ferroviaire mobile dans la partie occidentale du pays. L’essai s’est déroulé presque simultanément avec le séjour du secrétaire américain à la Défense Ashton Carter à bord du porte-avions John C. Stennis déployé en mer de Chine méridionale.
