Kim Jong-Un's army readied for war as they fired rockets and torpedoes at mock enemy warships during North Korea's 'largest ever' live-fire artillery drills on Tuesday.

Hundreds of tanks were lined up along the eastern coastal town of Wonsan in a show of military strength to celebrate 85 years since the North Korean army was created.

Kim saluted the military as he watched the exercises on Tuesday, which involved the firing of more than 300 large-calibre artillery pieces and included submarine torpedo-attacks.

28 April 2017 – Preventing armed conflict in north-east Asia is the international community's collective priority while the onus is also on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to refrain from further nuclear testing and explore the path of dialogue, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres told the Security Council today.

“Armed conflict in north-east Asia, which is home to one fifth of the world's people and gross domestic product, would have global implications,” warned Mr. Guterres at a ministerial-level meeting to discuss the DPRK's accelerated nuclear and ballistic missile activities. The meeting was chaired by Rex Tilerson, Secretary of State of the United States, which holds the Council's presidency for the month.

Mr. Guterres noted that since January 2016, the DPRK conducted two nuclear tests, more than 30 launches using ballistic missile technology, and various other activities relating to the nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, in clear violations of Security Council resolutions.

Its launches using ballistic missile technology have included tests of short-, medium-, intermediate-range and submarine-launched ballistic missiles, as well as the placement of a satellite in orbit, he added.

Citation:


We must assume that, with each test or launch, the DPRK continues to make technological advances in its pursuit of a military nuclear capability


“The DPRK is the only country to have conducted nuclear tests this century. We must assume that, with each test or launch, the DPRK continues to make technological advances in its pursuit of a military nuclear capability,” he said, citing DPRK leader Kim Jong Un's description of his country as a “responsible nuclear-weapon State” and a recent statement by a delegate that “going nuclear armed is the policy of our State.”

Mr. Guterres said he is alarmed by the risk of a military escalation in the region, including by miscalculation or misunderstanding, and is particularly concerned by the possibility that efforts to offset the destabilizing activities of the DPRK could also result in increased arms competition and tensions, further impeding the ability of the international community to maintain unity and achieve a peaceful solution.

“The onus is on the DPRK to comply with its international obligations. At the same time, the international community must also step up its efforts to manage and reduce tensions,” the UN chief stressed.

That means the DPRK refraining from further testing, complying with the relevant Council resolutions, and exploring the resumption of dialogue.

That also means reopening and strengthening communication channels, particularly military to military, to lower the risk of miscalculation or misunderstanding, and all Member States implementing relevant Council resolutions.

The Council has important tools at its disposal, from targeted sanctions to communication channels, he added.

Turning to the humanitarian situation in the DPRK, the Secretary-General noted that 13 UN agencies and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) operating in the DPRK are calling for $114 million to meet the urgent needs of 13 million especially vulnerable people – half the country's population.

He also called on the DPRK authorities to engage with UN human rights mechanisms and with the international community to address the grave human rights situation and improve the living conditions of its people. :roll:

La Marine chinoise a mené à bien des manœuvres militaires de routine dans la partie occidentale du Pacifique, relate l'agence Chine Nouvelle. Les navires de la flotte chinoise sont notamment passés à travers le détroit de Miyako, non loin de la préfecture japonaise d'Okinawa, avant d'entrer dans les eaux de l'ouest du Pacifique.

D'après l'agence, c'est là que la Marine a effectué les exercices militaires en question, qui comprenaient entre autres des opérations de sauvetage et des manœuvres de lutte contre la piraterie.

Il est indiqué que les manœuvres, prévues à l'avance, revêtaient un caractère pacifique et visaient uniquement à améliorer les capacités militaires des Forces navales.

AFGHANISTAN : L'OTAN ENVISAGE L'ENVOI DE NOUVELLES TROUPES (STOLTENBERG)  30/04/2017



L'Otan envisage une augmentation du nombre de ses soldats déployés en Afghanistan, où ils assistent les forces afghanes dans leur lutte contre les insurgés islamistes, a déclaré dimanche le secrétaire général de l'Alliance Jens Stoltenberg au journal allemand Welt am Sonntag.

Compte tenu de la détérioration de la situation en matière de sécurité, l'alliance étudie une augmentation des effectifs de sa mission "Resolute Support", qui compte actuellement quelque 13.000 hommes, a-t-il indiqué.

L'Otan compte prendre une décision d'ici juin sur une éventuelle augmentation des effectifs et sur une prolongation de sa mission, qui est actuellement renouvelée tous les ans, a-t-il précisé.

Le général John Nicholson, commandant des forces de l'Otan et américaines en Afghanistan, avait estimé en février que les forces de l'Alliance manquaient "de quelques milliers" de soldats pour mener leur mission auprès des forces afghanes. Il avait souligné que les forces de sécurité afghanes se trouvaient dans "une impasse" face aux talibans.

L'Otan a officiellement terminé sa mission de combat en Afghanistan fin 2014, ne maintenant plus sur place qu'une force d'environ 13.300 hommes, dont plus de la moitié américains, pour former et conseiller les forces de sécurité afghanes. Mais les talibans ont multiplié leurs attaques, augmentant les pertes dans les rangs des forces de sécurité et parmi les civils.

Des talibans portant des uniformes de l'armée afghane ont assassiné la semaine dernière au moins 135 jeunes recrues dans une base militaire du nord du pays, selon des cources officielles.

NEW HEAD OF KNIGHTS OF MALTA TO LEAD REFORM EFFORTS

On: 5/1/2017By Junno Arocho Esteves , In: World


[*]

ROME (CNS) -- The new lieutenant of the grand master of the Knights of Malta will lead efforts to reform the order following a tumultuous period that brought to light many of the ancient institution's internal disputes.

Fra' Giacomo Dalla Torre, elected April 29 to lead the Knights of Malta for a one-year period, will work on a constitutional reform that "will address potential institutional weaknesses," the order said in a press release following the election.

"The recent crisis has shown some weaknesses in the checks and balances in governance," it said. "The reform will take this into consideration."

Born in Rome, Dalla Torre has been a member of the order since 1985 and held several prominent roles in the order's hierarchy. Following the death of the 78th grand master, Fra' Andrew Bertie, he served as lieutenant ad interim prior to the election of Fra' Matthew Festing.

Dalla Torre's election closes a difficult chapter in the order's history and tensions that lead to Festing's resignation Jan. 24 at the behest of Pope Francis, who had established a commission to investigate his removal of the order's grand chancellor, Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager.

Festing refused to cooperate with the investigation and insisted the firing was a sovereign act outside the Vatican's jurisdiction, although the knights take a vow of obedience to the pope.

Although Boeselager was reinstated as grand chancellor, the public spat drew unwanted attention to internal disputes rather than to the order's priorities of providing humanitarian relief, encouraging dialogue and assisting migrants and refugees.

The Knights of Malta have 13,500 members, as well as 80,000 volunteers and 25,000 medical professionals providing relief and humanitarian aid in 120 countries.

Dominique de La Rochefoucauld-Montbel, current grand hospitaller of the order, said the crisis "has been troublesome for our donors," many of whom "decided maybe not to help us anymore because they thought we were fighting against the pope, which is not true."

"So now we have to restore this trust," he said Feb. 2 following Boeselager's reinstatement.

The reform now led by Dalla Torre, the Knights of Malta said, will "also focus on strengthening the order's spiritual life" and on efforts to increase the number of its professed members.

"Consultations have already begun and all members of the order have been invited to offer their suggestions," the order said.

WHEN ROBOTS STROM THE BEACH


May 1, 2017




VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rufkVCxjdY

The future of amphibious warfare looks like a constellation of bots large and small. The main challenge now is getting them to talk to each other.

OCEANSIDE, California — The beach assault began not with a bang but the whirring of drone propellers overhead, a grumble of gears, and the low sweep of the ocean. Frisbee-sized quadcopters raced ahead of enormous, self-driving amphibious assault vehicles. Satellites peered down as robotic submarines probed outward and up. With gigabytes of data flowing between these interconnected machines, it seemed — misleadingly — like a war that did not need humans at all.

From April 19 to 28, the United States Marine Corps put its ideas about the future of amphibious warfare to the test, along with a menagerie of drones and bots. During a ship-to-shore demonstration on Camp Pendleton’s Red Beach, an amphibious assault vehicle, or AAV, crawled out of the ocean like something from a 1950s Japanese monster movie and disgorged a MUTT robot tank armed with a .50-cal machine gun. Another MUTT, a product of an ongoing effort to create piggyback drone teams, launched a small quadcopter. Overhead buzzed the V-Bat, a drone that takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane, while seagull-like Puma drones fed targeting information to explosives-laden, cannon-fired Switchblade UAVs. After several minutes, with the beach “conquered,” Marines marched in quietly from the north.

Marine Corps leaders have been seeking ways to make robots the first on the beach and first through the door on tomorrow’s battlefield, a multi-year effort. There have been more than a few false starts (remember Big Dog?), and Lt. Gen. Robert Walsh, head of the Marine Corps Combat Development Command, worries that the United States is falling behind peer adversaries like Russia and China.

“A lot of the high-end threats we see today, their governments are putting a lot of their own research and development money into these areas to perform differently on a modern battlefield…We see them moving in areas that we haven’t looked at since the Cold War,” Walsh said.

Even non-state threats like ISIS are using drones in battle.



“I came into the Marine Corps in 1990, the year the Soviet Union fell…Guys my generation, our experience is we’re guaranteed maritime supremacy. We are guaranteed air supremacy…We’re the guys with cyber and EW. That’s no longer true,” observed Col. Daniel Sullivan, the deputy commander of the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab. “We aren’t used to being observed from the time we leave the wire [the safety of the base] to the time we return to the wire.”

How do you win the beach when everyone is preparing for the robotic battlefield? The difference between a robot assault that’s effective and one that’s more dangerous to allies than to adversaries depends on whether those gun-wielding robots, the Marines coming in behind them, and the commanders behind them are all speaking the same language, sharing the same picture, and doing so in way that can’t be intercepted or blocked by the enemy.

That challenge is a lot harder than slapping a 50.-cal gun on a self-driving beach bot, and it’s one the Pentagon is still struggling with. Some of the most important technologies that will guide robotic amphibious warfare are still waiting in the wings. On the sidelines of the mock assaults were researchers brought in by the Warfighting Lab to do preliminary tests on new concepts, or even just advertise their line of thinking.

One program is meant to slash the time needed to get satellite imagery analysis to warfighters on the beach. Today, it can take up to 24 hours to download a high-res satellite image to an earthbound station, process and analyze it, and send the resulting intelligence to operators on the battlefield. A Naval Research Lab program called Coalition Tactical Awareness and Response, or CTAR, hopes to shrink that lag to 30 minutes by creating a transportable analysis center that can pull the satellite data through a GATR antenna.

Others are trying to create common software interfaces for heterogeneous systems, sort of like the Windows operating system for sensor apps. In many areas, the Pentagon is closer to battlefield-usable artificial intelligence than it is getting sensors and software from different vendors to mesh securely and reliably. Among these efforts is the Tactical Situational Awareness System program from Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command.

SPAWAR is also working on drones that can follow orders given by voice. A longtime Pentagon ambition, this means creating circuits that can work out how to conduct complex operations from a relatively tiny amount of input. Animal brains can handle that sort of task because they can elaborate, improvise, make sense of their environment, and use intuition to fill in gaps in the data picture. That, in part, is why Stuart Rubin and Will Grefe of SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific  describe their work as “biologically inspired.” But recreating in electronics what nature took millions of years to evolve is not easy.

Also at Red Beach (but separate from the exercise itself) researchers from SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific tested new methods for millimeter-wave communications — a technology that will have implications far beyond the battlefield, or even the military itself.

In many ways, the 30- to 300-gigahertz range is the largely unconquered frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum, one that has long been hard to exploit through conventional antennas. It’s very hard to generate, find, and process signals in this area because of hardware constraints, which are now falling away.

It offers upload and downloads at 10 gigabytes a  second, faster than other wavelengths and helpful for more seamless transference of data. The pioneers in this field are a handful of high-frequency trading outfits that want high and uninterrupted bandwidth to execute massive trades in milliseconds. For a military force, millimeter-wave communications promise more reliable transfer of data, pictures, and collaboration between those machines storming the beach. It also means more waveforms possibilities for better software-defined network communications.

That could give operators, and their machines, more room to establish new communication links and avoid jamming attempts and other electronic warfare tactics. Some analysts project that the millimeter wave, or ka-band, portions of the spectrum will account for 30 percent of military satellite communications by 2024. As those new antennas make their way into consumer devices, a lot more commercial data in the future could ride the ka-band, which could have big ramifications for the satellite industry. But as technology advances, just like the real battle on the beach, the fight for that territory of electrons will also grow more intense.

Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine and intensive military operations in Syria have caused a very big problem: a shortage of qualified people to man its occupation forces. This personnel gap, caused by permanent, heavy losses suffered by Russia’s forces, has drastically changed the scale and character of its military missions. At the early stages of the conflicts, this shortage of qualified military personnel was corrected by recruitment from the Army Special Operations Forces, the Federal Security Service (FSB), the Foreign Intelligence Service and other special services. But now, to fill this gap further, Russia has moved to employ private military companies (PMC)...

JAPAN SENDS BIGGEST WARSHIP TO JOIN FRENCH WARSHIP, U.S. NAVY STRIKE FORCE NEAR KOREAN PENINSULA



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYx0VTzNRQI

Ajoutée le 1 mai 2017

Japan has dispatched its biggest warship for the first time in history to escort an American strike force near the Korean Peninsula.

Following an order from Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada, the helicopter carrier Izumo departed from its base in Yokosuka, south of the capital, Tokyo, on Monday to join the US strike group, which includes the large USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier.

The 249-meter-long Japanese carrier can carry up to nine helicopters. Its primary mission, however, is anti-submarine warfare.

Japan passed a set of controversial laws to expand the role of its military in 2015. The laws allow Tokyo to potentially engage in conflicts overseas.

Tokyo is also allowed to protect the weapons and equipment of its allied armed forces defending it and to provide logistical support to its allies involved in situations with “important influence” on Japanese security. One of the laws, known as “collective self-defense,” also enables Japan to aid an ally under military attack.

The government of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has come under fire because the new laws could, according to their opponents, drag the country into unnecessary wars abroad.

Tensions have been on the rise on the Korean Peninsula in recent weeks. Unsettled by North Korean missile and military nuclear programs, the United States has adopted a war-like posture, sending the strike force and conducting joint military drills with North Korea’s regional adversaries Japan and South Korea.
Japanese fighter jets joined the USS Carl Vinson in waters off the Japanese city of Okinawa on Saturday.

Annual massive military drills between the US and South Korea also wrapped up earlier.

North Korea says the annual drills are rehearsals for invasion. Pyongyang is also concerned by the permanent presence of American forces in the region.

The dispatching of the strike group has now specifically worked to mount tensions, raising fears of a potential military confrontation with North Korea.

French assault carrier at Japan port to take part in joint drills

A French amphibious assault carrier has navigated into Japan’s naval base of Sasebo to join the wargames set for next month in a move that will likely upset China amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The Mistral sailed into Japanese military installation on Saturday and is due to lead military drills near Guam in May, along with troops from Japan, the US and Britain.

The upcoming military drills, which will involve 700 naval forces, were planned prior to North Korea’s test-firing of a ballistic missile on Saturday, defying rising pressure from Washington and its military partners in the region and Europe.

The French warship, which left the country in February, can carry up to 35 helicopters and four landing barges, as well as several hundred sailors. It will reportedly remain in Sasebo until May 5.

The development comes as the US has deployed the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group to nearby waters in a show of force. The carrier joined guided missile submarine USS Michigan, which docked in South Korea on Tuesday.

During the transit from Hawaii to Hong Kong, Sterett and DESRON 31 Sailors conducted a series of exercises, including seamanship and damage control training, as well as flight operations. Sterett additionally executed a maneuvering and tracking event with the USS Makin Island (LHD 8) Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), Apr. 22.

While in Hong Kong, Sterett and DESRON 31 Sailors will take advantage of multiple morale, welfare and recreation (MWR) tours of the area and will participate in community service events.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of Hong Kong after a long transit across the Pacific," said Cmdr. Claudine Caluori, commanding officer of Sterett. "As our first liberty port, we are eager to experience the rich culture and history that Hong Kong has to offer, while strengthening our relationships within the region."

Throughout its deployment, the Sterett-Dewey SAG will operate with regional naval services to conduct routine patrols, maritime security operations and theater security cooperation activities to enhance regional security and stability in the Western Pacific.

U.S. 3rd Fleet retained control of the Sterett-Dewey SAG when it crossed the international dateline, April 17, into what has traditionally been U.S. 7th Fleet's operational control area. U.S. 3rd Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of both the 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.

"The Sterett-Dewey SAG is excited to build upon the strong relationships with our friends and partners here in the Western Pacific," said Capt. David A. Bretz, commander, DESRON 31. "The U.S. has maintained a persistent naval presence in the Indo-Asia Pacific region for more than 70 years, and we are looking forward to continuing that great tradition."

U.S. 3rd Fleet leads naval forces in the Pacific and provides the realistic, relevant training necessary for an effective global Navy, constantly coordinating with U.S. 7th Fleet to plan and execute missions based on their complementary strengths to promote ongoing peace, security, and stability throughout the Pacific theater of operations.

NATIONAL CONTRACT MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION HOLDS SMALL BUSINESS OUTREACH TRAINING

Story Number: NNS170503-07Release Date: 5/3/2017 9:44:00 AM  

By Barbara Burch, Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center Jacksonville, Office of Corporate Communications

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- National Contract Management Association (NCMA), Jacksonville Chapter teamed with Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Jacksonville to sponsor the third annual Small Business Outreach Training (SBOT) at the University of North Florida April 21.

The SBOT event is an all in one educational opportunity for Government and Industry personnel to interact and exchange current information on program management, logistics and acquisition through mentoring, workshops and training classes.

The event began with the Naval Air Station Jacksonville Color Guard's presentation of Colors followed by the National Anthem, sung by Linda Nelson, a NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville Office of Small Business Programs Procurement Analyst.

Joint welcoming remarks were delivered by Capt. Re Bynum, NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville commanding officer and Capt. Drew Hascall, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southeast (NAVFAC SE) executive officer discussing the important relationship between the U.S. Navy and small businesses partnering to support the Warfighter.

The SBOT offered training classes from government agencies including U.S. Small Business Administration, U.S. General Services Administration, and NAVFAC SE.

Several state and local government agencies also provided information on during business with the state of Florida, Duval County and the Jacksonville Transit Authority.

Panel discussions and workshops were offered on many subjects including government acquisition, Federal Labor, and Acquisition Regulations.

Small business owners and entrepreneurs provided advice from the small business owner's perspective.

According to Caretha Brown-Griffin, NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville director, Office of Small Business Programs, the SBOT is highly recommended for any small business owner and entrepreneur.

"By the end of the day, I had received at least 12 phone calls and four email messages from attendees. They are motivated and interested in learning more about business opportunities with NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville and the U.S. Navy," said Brown-Griffin.

The event wrapped up with matchmaking sessions with industry professionals mentoring small business participants, strengthening the positive relationship of small businesses and government contracting.

NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville, one of eight fleet logistics centers under NAVSUP Global Logistics Support (GLS), provides operational logistics, business and support services to fleet, shore and industrial commands of the Navy, Coast Guard, Military Sealift Command, and other joint and allied forces. Services include contracting, regional transportation, fuel, material management, household goods movement support, postal and consolidated mail, warehousing, global logistics and husbanding, hazardous material management, and integrated logistics support.

NAVSUP GLS provides global logistics for a global Navy. The organization is made up of approximately 6,300 military and civilian logistics professionals operating from 105 locations worldwide, providing an extensive array of integrated global logistics and contracting services to Navy, Marine Corps, joint operational units and allied forces across all warfare enterprises.

U.S. GENERAL CONFIRMS : SPECIAL OPERATIONS TEAMS WILL BE SENT TO TAKE OUT NORTH KOREAN NUKE SITES

Mac Slavo
May 3rd, 2017
SHTFplan.com




With China issuing a final warning to North Korea earlier today, and U.S. President Donald Trump keeping all options on the table as he prepares a response to continued North Korean military posturing and rhetoric, Army General Raymond A. Thomas confirmed in sworn testimony to a Congressional sub committee that special operations teams will be utilized as part of any conflict with the rogue state and would likely be sent in to secure and/or destroy North Korean nuclear facilities in the event of war:
Citation:

Army Gen. Raymond A. Thomas stated in testimony to a House subcommittee that Army, Navy, and Air Force commandos are based both permanently and in rotations on the Korean peninsula in case conflict breaks out.

The special operations training and preparation is a warfighting priority, Thomas said in prepared testimony. There are currently around 8,000 special operations troops deployed in more than 80 countries.

“We are actively pursuing a training path to ensure readiness for the entire range of contingency operations in which [special operations forces], to include our exquisite [countering weapons of mass destruction] capabilities, may play a critical role,” he told the subcommittee on emerging threats.

“We are looking comprehensively at our force structure and capabilities on the peninsula and across the region to maximize our support to U.S. [Pacific Command] and [U.S. Forces Korea]. This is my warfighting priority for planning and support.”

Special forces troops would be responsible for locating and destroying North Korean nuclear weapons and missile delivery systems, such as mobile missiles. They also would seek to prevent the movement of the weapons out of the country during a conflict.

Special operations missions are said by military experts to include intelligence gathering on the location of nuclear and chemical weapons sites for targeting by bombers. They also are likely to include direct action assaults on facilities to sabotage the weapons, or to prevent the weapons from being stolen, or set off at the sites by the North Koreans.

Source: Free Beacon



In earlier reports it was noted that SEALs and other commandos could be used in a first strike to decapitate North Korean leadership at the onset of any military engagement.
The President deployed high altitude surveillance drones over North Korea earlier this week in a bid to gather intelligence about the secretive country’s nuclear and military capabilities ahead of any military action.

The latest moves, coupled with recent mobilizations of Chinese, Russian and U.S. military assets suggests previous policies of patient diplomacy under President Obama and President Bush have been thrown out the window.

The world appears to be moving towards war at a feverish pace.

A major military effort by Russia has been launched to build up its strength in the Arctic circle. Journalists were invited to the Alakurtti base, which is 250 miles from the northern port of Murmansk and on the country's border with Finland.

During the era of the Soviet Union, large numbers of forces were deployed to the Arctic Circle to enhance its strategic defences. The peninsula the base is located on was called the "unsinkable aircraft-carrier" due to a large number of airbases there

PC PENTAGON CAVES TO CAIR, AGREES TO 'REVIEW' ANTI-TERROR TRAINING PROGRAM

Assigns case to Muslim chaplain who graduated from radical Islamic school raided after 9/11.

April 26, 2017
Paul Sperry

 

   
The Pentagon has agreed to formally review an anti-terror training program taught to special forces by a private contractor for material deemed offensive to Islam and Muslims, even though the Muslim group that lodged a complaint against the allegedly “Islamophobic” program has been accused by the Justice Department of supporting terrorism and is currently banned from outreach activities by the FBI.

The instructor hired to teach the program says he fears his class might not get a fair hearing, because military brass have assigned the review to a Muslim military chaplain who graduated from a radical Saudi-funded Islamic school raided by federal agents after 9/11 on suspicion of terrorist activities. He is their second choice for conducting the review. They had originally picked a more radical military chaplain to inspect the training materials before learning he has ties to an imam with a history of ministering to Muslims later convicted of terrorism.

Brass decided to launch the review after receiving a letter from the Council on American-Islamic Relations last month demanding the commander of US Air Force Special Operations sever ties with longtime counterterrorism instructor Patrick Dunleavy, claiming his lessons "contain anti-Islamic content.” CAIR, a suspected terrorist front organization, did not cite any examples of content from his “Dynamics of International Terrorism” course to support its claim.

Dunleavy formerly served as deputy inspector general of New York State prisons’ criminal intelligence division and also worked with the NYPD’s intelligence division for several years. His five-day course, which he’s taught complaint-free at the AIr Force for several years, covers homegrown terrorism and prison radicalization, which tie directly into recent ISIS cases.CAIR claims to be a “Muslim civil-rights organization,” but the feds have ID’d CAIR and its founder as “members of the US Muslim Brotherhood,” while designating them both as “unindicted co-conspirators” in a 2008 terror-financing case involving Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and a US-designated terrorist group.

“From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists,” US prosecutors charged in one court filing.

As a result, the FBI has cut off ties to CAIR until investigators “can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and Hamas.”

Air Force Special Operations commander Lt. Gen. Marshal Webb received the CAIR letter and, in turn, ordered Special Operations School commandant Lt. Col. Christopher Portele to initiate a review. It is not clear if Webb is aware of CAIR’s well-documented support of terrorists. A spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Dunleavy says top brass more than likely are in the dark about the extent of CAIR’s terrorism ties. “I’m sure they don’t have a complete knowledge of CAIR or other Muslim Brotherhood groups,” he said in an interview.

He notes that the military also has a problem vetting Islamic clergy.

Air Force chaplain Walid Habash is expected to begin reviewing slides from Dunleavy’s lesson material later this week, despite the fact that he received his Islamic education from a radical Muslim Brotherhood school in Virginia. Habash’s alma mater  the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences, or GSISS, was raided by federal agents in 2002 as part of a post-9/11 terrorism investigation. The longtime director of GSISS — Saudi-tied Taha Jabir Alalwani — is an unindicted co-conspirator in two federal prosecutions related to terrorist financing.

Other GSISS alumni include former New York prison chaplain Warith Deen Umar, who preached that the 9-11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs and that black converts to Islam are natural recruits for carrying out future attacks against the US.

Habash has led Islamic prayer service at the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention camp. In 2005, the FBI busted up what was described as an Islamist "spy ring" for al-Qaida at Gitmo involving other Muslim military chaplains, as well as Arabic translators, accused of “serious breaches of national security."

Habash was substituted last week for Muslim military chaplain Rafael Lantigua after Air Force brass learned of his radical associations, apparently for the first time.

It turns out that Lantigua sits on the board of directors of an Islamist group with a radical cleric who ran a New York mosque where the terrorists who plotted to bomb synagogues in the Bronx were radicalized. That 2009 case -- which touches the cleric, Imam Salahuddin Muhammad -- is one of Dunleavy’s presentation slides. Muhammad, a former convicted armed bank robber, was a protege of Umar.

In addition, Lantigua recently spoke at a New York Islamic conference where cop-killer Jamil Al-Amin and Luqman Abdullah, a Detroit imam killed in a shootout with the FBI, were honored. Muhammad gave the keynote address at the February event.

Once this information came to light, and questions were raised over how impartial Lantigua, who holds the rank of captain, could be regarding the subject of Islamic radicalization in the prisons, Air Force brass began a search for a new Muslim chaplain to review Dunleavy’s lesson plan.

“The military has an ongoing problem vetting their Muslim clergy,” Dunleavy told me. “Nobody wants to touch this political powder keg.”

In a press release  CAIR communications director Ibrahim Hooper accused Dunleavy of being an "anti-Muslim propaganda mouthpiece” with a "personal prejudice against Islam and Muslims.” The same spokesman once told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he wants the US to become a Muslim country.

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future,” Hooper said, betraying CAIR’s real agenda.

Nonetheless, CAIR has found success already in convincing law enforcement to alter training programs, including bleaching references to “Islam,” “Shariah,” “caliphate” and “jihad” and other allegedly offensive terms from state and federal anti-terrorist training materials. It has also pressured the sidelining of some instructors.

Emboldened, the group is now targeting military training curricula for censorship. Dunleavy is just the latest subject-matter expert targeted for a smear campaign.

He and other trainers chiefly blame "political correctness" for the capitulation to CAIR at the highest levels of government. Talking honestly about the violent nature of Islam, a minority religion, is taboo in Washington. It’s much safer for career advancement to apologize for it — even though officials know that sweeping the religious doctrines and motives behind growing Islamic terrorism under the rug won’t make them disappear. In fact, it will only lead to more attacks and more American victims.

“The concerted effort by groups like CAIR to remove any material from law enforcement or military training that outlines the process of Islamic radicalization is fraught with danger,” Dunleavy warned, particularly in light of the case of the Paris terrorist Karim Cheurfi.

Cheurfi, an ISIS-tied Muslim who last week fatally shot a police officer while wounding two others with an AK-47, had all the indicators outlined by Dunleavy in the material the Pentagon is now second-guessing thanks to CAIR protesting. They include: prison radicalization, exposure to radical Islamic preachers, and attraction to jihadi violence. In spite of these and other warning signs, Cheurfi escaped close monitoring by authorities. Identifying ingredients in this “radicalizing cauldron” is key to authorities stopping such jihadists, says Dunleavy, author of “The Fertile Soil of Jihad: Terrorism's Prison Connection."

It’s also important for screening military recruits, especially now that the Pentagon has started issuing more waivers for applicants with prison records.

Dunleavy says the government is basically letting supporters of the bad guys — working on both the outside and inside — blindfold law enforcement and military personnel to the point where they can’t effectively spot the bad guys.

Indeed, his case is the latest example of how baseless charges of “Islamophobia” and “anti-Muslim bigotry” are used to hamstring legitimate counterterrorism efforts, which will only pave the way for more islamic terror attacks in the future.

FURIOUS NORTH KOREA SAYS US CONDUCTED MOCK NUKE DROPPING OVER MAJOR OBJECTS

Ajoutée le 2 mai 2017

Another day, another jawboning escalation out of North Korea, which on Tuesday accused the US of pushing the Korean peninsula "to the brink of nuclear war" after two strategic U.S. bombers flew training drills with the South Korean and Japanese air forces in another show of strength. As Reuters reports, the two supersonic B-1B Lancer bombers were deployed amid rising tensions over North Korea's pursuit of its nuclear and missile programs.

North Korea said the bombers conducted "a nuclear bomb dropping drill against major objects" in its territory at a time when Trump and "other U.S. warmongers are crying out for making a preemptive nuclear strike" on the North.

"The reckless military provocation is pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula closer to the brink of nuclear war," the North's official KCNA news agency said on Tuesday.

"Any military provocation against the DPRK will precisely mean a total war which will lead to the final doom of the US."

EUROPEAN WAR GAMES : RESPONSES TO RUSSIAN MILITARY DRILLS

May 5, 2015 | 20:03 GMT



(MARIT HOMMEDAL/AFP/Getty Images)

Summary

Several events have coincided to demonstrate the dynamic, if not guarded, relationship between Russia and the Nordic and Baltic states. Ten NATO countries and Sweden launched a two-week planned exercise in the North Sea on May 4 to improve their anti-submarine warfare capabilities. On the same day, Finland — not a NATO member — began mailing letters to about 900,000 reservists informing them of their roles in a potential crisis situation. Meanwhile, Sweden's Foreign Ministry formally complained to Russian authorities that Russian navy ships were disrupting cable-laying work in waters between Sweden and Lithuania, the latest in a series of formal complaints over Russia's activity in the area. Concurrently, the Swedish and Lithuanian foreign ministers met with Moldova's pro-West leaders in Chisinau.

All of these events confirm that the Nordic and Baltic states are working to boost security cooperation in response to Russia's military activity in the region. Consequently, the security buildup will continue — on both sides.

Russian military activity, especially flights, along NATO's borders has increased in past months. In March, Russian military activity in the Black Sea, Baltic Sea and along the Finnish border spiked as part of snap drills simulating a full-scale confrontation with the West. The exercises were not so much a direct threat to the region as a colossal demonstration of Russian capability against NATO and other regional powers, particularly Baltic and Nordic countries.

Russia consistently pushes security boundaries in the region as a show of power. On May 3, Latvia's military reported that two Russian naval ships and a Russian submarine were located 5.2 nautical miles from Latvian territorial waters in the Baltic Sea, only the latest in a series of similar incidents over the past few months. Similarly, on April 28, Finland's navy fired grenade-size underwater charges at shallow depth as a warning to a suspected foreign submarine reportedly located in waters near Helsinki. In October 2014, Sweden's military conducted a large-scale search for a suspected foreign submarine near Stockholm.

Russian activity in waters near the Baltics and Nordic countries, however, is not limited to submarines. Russian naval vessels, allegedly participating in military exercises, have also disrupted the laying of the NordBalt cable, designed to facilitate the trade of electricity between Sweden and Lithuania, four times.

Moves and Countermoves

The Nordic and Baltic countries are located in a region of strategic importance to Russia. The expansion of NATO to the Baltic countries in the early 2000s brought the alliance closer than ever to Russia, within 130 kilometers (80 miles) of St. Petersburg. And Norway, a NATO member, has pushed for the alliance to become more active in the Barents Sea and in the Arctic, where Russia is increasing its presence.

Finland and Sweden are formally non-aligned and have remained neutral since the Cold War. Nevertheless, the crisis in Ukraine and increased Russian military activity in the region have reignited the debate over Finnish and Swedish defense alignments. Though neither country is formally applying for NATO membership, Sweden is for the first time participating in NATO's anti-submarine drills. Both Finland and Sweden are involved in efforts to boost regional defense cooperation to counter Russian maneuvers in the region. In early April, officials from Finland and Sweden joined their Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic counterparts to jointly call for greater military cooperation among the countries.



Increased Russian military activity in the region has led some countries to strengthen their domestic defenses as well. On March 19, Lithuania's parliament voted to reinstate compulsory military conscription in direct response to the crisis in Ukraine. Although Finnish officials have denied that the letter campaign to 900,000 reservists is related to increased Russian activity along Finland's borders, the campaign's scale points to a link.
 
Finally, several countries, most notably Sweden and the Baltic states, have been highly involved in efforts to build a broad regional alliance to counter Russia's moves in Central and Eastern Europe. On May 4, Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom and Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius visited Moldova in preparation for the Eastern Partnership summit in Latvia later this month. Sweden and the Baltics, among others, have also vigorously encouraged Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova to take steps to further integrate with the European Union and to boost ties with countries such as Turkey and Romania to create a U.S.-backed alliance network that would reach from the Baltics in the north to the Black Sea and Turkey in the south.

Russia's military activity near the Baltic and Nordic states will not end anytime soon. Such activity is unlikely to escalate. However, Russian military exercises and movement will serve as a constant reminder of the potential threat Russia poses to the region. Still, the Nordic and Baltic nations will strive to cooperate on regional defense and strengthen defense policies in NATO and non-NATO states. And because of Russia's provocations in the region, even countries that have traditionally shied away from military alliances, such as Finland and Sweden, will likely heed their calls

A STRONG PARTNERSHIP WITH ITS NEIGHBORS 

The Barbados Defence Force has a robust partnership with military, police, and other security agencies in the Caribbean region.

Geraldine Cook/ Diálogo | 4 May 2017

Barbados is nestled in the heart of the eastern Caribbean; it has white sandy beaches, calm blue waters, and sharp cliffs that attract tourists from around the world. But, like its neighbors, it also faces security challenges that are making its security forces become ever more vigilant. Drug trafficking, illegal weapons trafficking, and other criminal activities are keeping the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) very busy at sea and on land to neutralize criminal actions. = Always the same lies to achieve their communist agenda

Created in 1979, the BDF is responsible for the defense of Barbados and such other duties as the Defense Board determines. The military organization has three components: the Barbados Regiment (land force), the Barbados Coast Guard (maritime element), and the Barbados Cadet Corps.

Colonel Glyne Grannum, chief of staff and commander of the BDF, spoke with Diálogo at the “Caribbean Regional Seminar on Countering Transregional Transnational Threat Networks (T3N)” celebrated in Bridgetown, Barbados, from March 21st-23rd. Among the topics discussed, Col. Grannum stated they are making progress on regional security cooperation in order to jointly confront threats networks. He also spoke about the BDF’s mission, goals and priorities for 2017.

Diálogo: What is the importance of the seminar being held in Barbados, and of the BDF serving as its co-host?

Colonel Glyne Grannum, BDF commander: The BDF takes particular pride and benefit from co-hosting the seminar in Barbados with the Regional Security System (RSS). We recognize the importance of the security of the Caribbean region, the security of the RSS’ area of operation as well as the security of the entire hemisphere because the issues we face are transnational threats that migrate freely across all our porous borders. The seminar is a huge opportunity for us to be able to meet, exchange ideas, and discuss policies and strategies to counter the T3N. We are honored to have such a great group of people from the Perry Center come here and share their views on transnational threats as well as the Caribbean states, their military forces, police forces, other security services, like customs and immigration, and Ministry of Defense officials. The seminar really helps to illustrate and harness the different points of view and experiences of all persons involved in defense, because the security community comprised of the forces and agencies of all the countries participating essentially comprises an alliance needed to counter transnational security problems.

Diálogo: What does the BDF expect to gain from this seminar?

Col. Grannum:
First, to reinforce the positions of our fellow member states and international partners in defense in the hemisphere to strengthen their strategies and programs to counter the T3N. Doing so benefits Barbados as we, too, redouble our national strategies. Second, will be the development of our middle- to senior-level officers who need exposure at this level and need to better understand the transnational issues, so ultimately they can better participate in future events like security operations, programs, and strategies to secure our country.

Diálogo: What is the BDF’s main focus?

Col. Grannum: Our main focus is the defense and security of Barbados. In fact, our function involves working as part of the modern joint interagency family of security forces and services. One of our main objectives is to improve operational cooperation and effectiveness with the Royal Barbados Police Force through the provision of military assistance to the civil power. Our mission also includes –as a member of the RSS and as a member of the wider Caribbean community– to be able to conduct similar joint and combined operations with regional partners to deal with domestic and transregional security problems. At the same time, we don’t want to lose sight of the need to perform civil defense operational tasks, as we are in the middle of a very active hurricane zone. Our role is very broad in terms of dealing with many multidimensional and intertwined threats and environmental risks. We will continue to deal with security challenges, transnational organized crime, and also be ready to deal with the effects of terrorism in the region and humanitarian assistance tasks.

Diálogo: What is the focus of your military efforts as Chief of Staff of the BDF?

Col. Grannum: In addition to the focus of the BDF as a whole, our military effort includes maintaining a presence in our maritime domain with the ability to monitor and interdict illegal activities. On land our focus is to be ready to support the civil power, the police force, in all aspects of operations and provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief throughout both land and sea domains.

Diálogo: The BDF was established in 1979, how do its main components –Barbados Regiment, Barbados Coast Guard, and Barbados Cadet Corps– work together?
Col. Grannum: They work together very well. The Force Headquarters is the superior authority of the three units. There is a very high measure of interoperability between the Barbados Regiment, as the land force, and the Barbados Coast Guard, as the maritime component of the force, in terms of providing security services across the island of Barbados. Very efficient and very effective interoperability has been one of our main strengths over the years.

Diálogo: What is the BDF’s role at the RSS?

Col. Grannum: The RSS has seven Member States: Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and of course, Barbados. The RSS Member States forces apply a collaborative effort for the security of the region. The BDF’s role as part of the RSS is to contribute militarily, jointly on land and at sea, and to be ready to participate in deliberate operations or quick responses, to deal with security challenges in any of the Member States. Since its creation in 1982, the BDF has participated in numerous humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations as well as a number of security operations that brought tactical resources from seven Member States together. The BDF also has the distinction of acting in a more deliberate way as part of a wider cooperation and treaty arrangement with CARICOM [the Caribbean Community] for example, participating in operations in Haiti (1994 - 1996) and the Cricket World Cup (2007). More recently the BDF was a part of the RSS’ assistance humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions to Dominica after the passage of Tropical Storm Erica (2015) and to the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force in Saint Kitts and Nevis for security operations (2016).

Diálogo: What is your biggest concern in terms of regional security in Barbados?

Col. Grannum: Regional security has been dominated for many years by threats of narcotrafficking and the shipments of marijuana and cocaine from South America to North America and into Europe, and the effects of the increase of criminality with violent gang crimes in particular. We should not lose sight either of the public health effects of drug and arms trafficking where there are very negative effects within communities and states. In the immediate future, and as was documented in open media sources, there seems to be an increase in cocaine production in some of the South American growing regions. Drug trafficking, as well as the smuggling of illegal weapons and potentially people across our borders will likely remain the most significant threats which we must actively address and confront.

In regard to terrorism, we know the global environment is still unstable as we have seen horrific events play out in Europe, in parts of Africa, and in the United States. Lone-wolf attacks by individuals that are either inspired by or in some cases directed remotely by terrorist organizations and ideologies to commit horrible attacks, unfortunately continue. Our focus is on the prevention of any terrorist attack in Barbados and in the wider RSS and Caribbean region. Our efforts must include the continued sharing of information and resources to prevent and respond if necessary, to give the communities we serve the confidence that their security forces are aware of the global threat and are prepared for it. Cyber attacks are a third area of concern requiring focused attention and urgent operational readiness.

Diálogo: How do you cooperate with neighboring nations to defeat T3N?

Col. Grannum: The BDF has a very strong partnership with all RSS and non-RSS neighboring countries. We cooperate fully with the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force and their Coast Guard for maritime security threats, and have a very good working relationship with the French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. I am very optimistic that the working relationships with all countries in the region will grow stronger in the face of the security threats which may arise in the future.

Diálogo: What are your/the BDF’s priorities for 2017?

Col. Grannum: We are scheduled to co-host Exercise Tradewinds 2017 in June of this year. The first phase is going to be held here in Barbados, focusing on HADR response, counter terrorism and counter transnational organized crime operations at the operational and tactical levels. Trinidad and Tobago is hosting the second phase of the Exercise. Our priority at this time therefore on readiness to participate in Tradewinds as a vehicle for overarching force mission readiness. Beyond Tradewinds, our focus will be on national HADR efforts to deal with the annual hurricane season which runs from June to November.

Diálogo: Is there anything you’d like to add for our regional readers?

Col. Grannum: For a long time, the BDF has enjoyed rich and robust partnerships in terms of the community of the military, police and other security agencies, not just within the RSS, and beyond within CARICOM, but extending in depth across the entire hemisphere. We are pleased that the Perry Center could bring this seminar to Barbados. Our purpose and determination is well set in terms of delivering our national and collective alliance missions to deal with the modern transnational threats as they exist, whether those threats are from terrorist organizations, violent extremist groups or drug trafficking organizations. I think we have enormous networked capabilities to rely on by leveraging national resources in harmony with our neighbors. Our regional collaborative efforts will achieve success in dealing with the threats.

ENSURING UNITY, SECURITY, AND STABILITY

The strategic focus of U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet is to promote peace, security and stability in the Caribbean and Central and South American regions.

Geraldine Cook/Diálogo | 9 February 2017

Rear Admiral Sean S. Buck, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet (COMUSNAVSO/C4F), has a distinct and unwavering commitment to the maritime forces of the partner nations in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. His goal is clear: to foster unity and work with each as the maritime partner of choice in order to maintain the security and stability of the Western Hemisphere.

Rear Adm. Buck’s commitment goes beyond his focus on the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) area of operations. In addition to working with partner nations, he is committed to ensuring his own personnel in Florida are 100 percent ready to do their best at all times.

Since assuming command over USNAVSO/USFOURTHFLT in August 2016, the mission and responsibility, as he describes it, is essential for enhancing cooperative maritime security.

Diálogo visited Rear Adm. Buck at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, where he spoke about his military efforts, engagements with SOUTHCOM’s partner nations and the regional security challenges they all face.


Diálogo: What is U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command (USNAVSO)/U.S. 4th Fleet’s (FOURTHFLT) main focus with regard to our Area of Responsibility (AOR)?

Rear Adm. Sean S. Buck: Our primary daily focus is to be sure that we maintain our security commitment to partners in our AOR. It’s to ensure they always know that we are steadfast in uniting with them to keep our entire region secure and stable. This focus takes a team effort. I encourage a teaming mentality so that we are able to achieve a high state of readiness and preparedness to respond to any kind of contingency or crises in the AOR; a crisis that may negatively affect our partners and/or possibly pose a risk to our own national security.

Diálogo: What is the focus of your military efforts as commander of USNAVSO?

Rear Adm. Buck: I continue to focus on the military imperatives that Admiral Kurt W. Tidd [SOUTHCOM Commander] has charged all of his team with. These imperatives support our partner nations’ efforts to improve execution of their duties. These four key military imperatives characterize any legitimate military that seeks to gain the trust of the population they serve.

The first imperative is working jointly; having the ability to work among and with sister services and other government agencies within their country for a whole-of-government response. The U.S. military has recognized the importance of working jointly, and I believe it is a critical imperative to demonstrate to our partner militaries and government organizations.

The professionalization of the Non-Commissioned Officer Corps (NCO) is also an important military imperative. We are very proud of how we empower our NCO in the United States military with responsibility and accountability. It is something we share and demonstrate with partners to enable them to be a more effective fighting force.

The age-old imperative of following the principles of human rights is fundamental for successful militaries in our AOR. An operational military will never gain the trust and legitimacy they need from their population if there is any question of their commitment to human rights, or their desire to protect those rights.

The fourth military imperative that we stress is gender integration; the integration of women in our military services across all military occupational specialties.

I have a very good example of that integration; my deputy commander, Rear Admiral Linda R. Wackerman. As a U.S. Navy Reserve Officer, Rear Adm. Wackerman simultaneously juggles the duties of a senior naval leader and aviator, as well as working as a commercial airline pilot. Her valuable experience and professionalism is an asset to our command – I am extremely proud to partner with her in execution of our mission. Demonstrating the effectiveness of gender integration to our partners through our own example enforces the importance of women serving in military forces.

Diálogo: What do you expect to achieve with each country in SOUTHCOM’s AOR you engage with, whether through exercises, key leader engagements, or any other engagement?

Rear Adm. Buck: Most importantly, I expect to earn the trust of our partner nations. It’s the very first thing I think about as I partner either bilaterally or in a multinational group effort. I must demonstrate my commitment to our relationships and reiterate why I want to partner with our counterparts in Central, South America and the Caribbean. We are more effective and achieve higher levels of success when we work alongside each other toward our goals of security, stability, and unity in our hemisphere. The United States chooses not to do it alone. When we work together and leverage our strengths, we will win and prosper together.

I am fairly new as a commander in Mayport; as I go downrange to introduce myself, my focus is to ensure my partners feel they can trust me and trust my team. I hope my efforts encourage them to partner with us. Thus far, I have had the opportunity to travel to El Salvador, Panama, Colombia, and Chile. My experiences in those four nations have been wonderful. I was warmly welcomed, and I believe I accomplished my goals there and gained their trust. I built friendships with my counterparts and we have already been able to reach out to wish our partner militaries well and a happy holiday season. It has been exciting so far, so I’m looking forward to the future.

With regard to exercises, the one I am most proud of, and the one that I am solely responsible for is UNITAS. We spread the hosting responsibilities of the exercise around our AOR to have a different host each year. Last year, Panama was the host; it was the first time a Central America nation has hosted UNITAS in 67 years. We did that to ensure we build confidence and the capacity to lead multinational operations across all of our partners in Latin America. We also participate in TRADEWINDS to increase the capabilities and capacities of our Caribbean-nation friends. All the exercises are very important, either on a bilateral or multilateral level, where we invite not only the nations from our AOR but also other Pacific, European, or African countries to come [take part], as the global nature of the threats these days are transnational and transregional; they originate from all over the globe.

Diálogo: What is your biggest concern in terms of regional security in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean?

Rear Adm. Buck: There are two things that I am pretty worried about, that keep me up at night. First, I am concerned about terrorist networks leveraging the existing illicit drug trade routes that have been around for a long time to flow money, weapons, foreign terrorists, drugs, etc. through our partner nations and into the southern part of the United States. It seems to be too easy to use these pathways that drug cartels have been using for decades – these networks are a serious threat to regional security and require multinational efforts to thwart them.

Second, I have concerns about the breakdown of governance in any of our partner nations that could lead to a mass migration of people. Mass migration, as well as natural disasters, could cause a disruption and threaten our regional stability and negatively impact our prosperity. We share common interests and goals with the people of Latin America – I worry that successful threat networks, unsuccessful governance or any variety of natural disaster could have a devastating impact on the peace, security and stability we work so hard to achieve in our homelands.

Diálogo: Having been in the position of Commander for six months (since August 2016), how has your perspective of the AOR changed since you first assumed command?
Rear Adm. Buck: It hasn’t changed significantly. I have some prior experience in this AOR. My first six months have brought me a deeper respect for our partners, their capabilities, strengths, and friendship, and more specifically, a better knowledge of who they are, what they do, and what their navies are capable of doing. So [there hasn’t been] a huge change in my perspective, just a deepening of my respect and knowledge.

Diálogo: How has/does the relationship you help build benefit the collaboration between the U.S. Navy and those of our regional partner nations?

Rear Adm. Buck: The collaboration is getting much stronger, as well as the individual military capacities of the United States and our partners. I think the biggest indicator of how much stronger it’s getting is the ownership each of our partners’ take for their own security, prosperity, and stability. In years past, my predecessors used to get a lot of phone calls to request assistance when something bad happened in our area of operations. What I am seeing now is fewer phone calls; when a crisis happens in a partner nation, they are responding and assisting their populations more effectively than in the past. This is an exciting development because it shows an increase in confidence - our efforts to build capacity, enhance preparedness and stress military imperatives are having a positive effect. We are seeing that, and I am very happy with it. We will continue to be prepared to respond if we are asked, and we always volunteer to serve in a consulting or advisory role. We will continue to exercise with them, but it’s great to see our counterparts take as much ownership as they do these days.

Diálogo: What kind of results do you expect to come to fruition for 2017, and what results have you seen so far in your time working with this AOR?

Rear Adm. Buck: I have three major accomplishments I’d like to make happen in 2017. First, I want to complete key leader engagements with every partner nation in the AOR; a chance to introduce myself, meet them and an opportunity to develop mutual trust. This is achieved by visiting their nations or inviting them here to Mayport and learning about our respective maritime forces.

Second, for my USNAVSO/FOURTHFLT team, I want to increase our operational preparedness for rapid response. This is a critical skill we must be able to execute when our partners or our own nation are counting on our support or advice if a disaster strikes.

Third, I aim to enhance the complexity and sophistication of our exercises, such as PANAMAX and UNITAS. We get better by actual at-sea operations; challenging ourselves and our partners to operate together and build our repertoire of maritime skills. We can’t become complacent by just exercising ashore. The threats to our stability and security are evolving, so we need to be on top of our game and ready for any scenario. We do this by sharing knowledge and improving our multinational cooperation.

Diálogo: How has your prior experience prepared you for this role? And what lessons learned did you bring with you to this role, especially after serving as the JS J5 Chief of Staff, assisting the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in his role as principal military adviser to the President of the United States and the Secretary of Defense?

Rear Adm. Buck: My past experience has laid the foundation for success in my new role. I am a maritime patrol aviator. I have many years of operational experience, flying our detection and monitoring missions in the counter-narcotics mission set. My time on the Joint Staff gave me a greater appreciation of the geopolitical issues that are going on in the AOR as well as the political-military relationships. My time in the Pentagon, specifically on the Joint Staff and J5, gave me a solid education on the importance of partnerships and a greater appreciation for the varying cultures of the world.

Diálogo: Anything you’d like to add for our regional readers?

Rear Adm. Buck: I’d like to remind them of my command’s motto: “Unity, security, and stability.” That is my strategic focus in commanding USNAVSO/FOURTHFLT; to improve the unity of my own team and my team with our partners, and to ensure the security and stability of our entire region. I hope when they see our logo, it serves as a reminder of that commitment and a reminder of what we stand for.

BALTIC AIR POLICING MISSION CHANGES LEAD NATION AT SIAULIAI AIR BASE

2 May 2017

ŠIAULIAI, Lithuania – The lead in NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission was taken over by the Polish Air Force on Tuesday, May 2nd 2017. A detachment of four F-16 jets, pilots and staff will be responsible to safeguard the Baltic airspace for four months until September. The detachment of the Royal Netherlands Air Force that had been leading the mission since the beginning of the year, was thanked and bid farewell during the traditional ceremony at Šiauliai Air Base.
 
"Let me tell you, you have done outstanding - as ambassadors of your country and as ambassadors of NATO” said Brigadiergeneral Roberto Di Marco, Deputy Commander of NATO’s Deployable Air Command and Control Centre to the Dutch Airmen. The Netherlands have now completed their third contribution to the mission. They had once before patrolled the Baltic skies in 2005 and had augmented the mission out of Marlbork, Poland when the Baltic Air Policing capabilities were temporarily stepped up in response to the illegal Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014.  
 
The Polish Air Force is now supporting NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission for the seventh time. However, the current rotation is a premier for Poland. The previous six times Polish pilots had flown MiG-29 fighter jets when launching to identify or intercept aircraft in Baltic airspace. May to September 2017 marks the first time ever Poland is deploying their F-16 fighter jets. Their detachment will be augmented by a second detachment operating out of Amari, Estonia. After a double term of eight months since September 2016, the German Air Force is going to hand over to a detachment from Spain on May 3.
 
NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission has been in place since 2004 when Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia joined NATO. Originally only operating out of Šiauliai, Lithuania, the mission has been augmented by a second detachment based in Estonia upon agreement of the Wales summit in 2014. Baltic Air Policing is part of a NATO wide 24/7 routine peacetime mission to ensure safety, security and integrity of all Alliance members’ airspace. For member countries that don’t have their own Air Policing assets, such as the three Baltic States, other NATO members’ Airforces regularly provide their fighter jets in support. Commanded and Controlled by one of NATO’s Combined Air Operation Centres, Air Policing jets launch whenever aircraft behave in an unusual, unsafe or unidentified manner.

3 May 2017

ÄMARI, Estonia – Spanish F-18 fighter aircraft took over NATO’s Baltic Air Policing mission from German Eurofighter jets at Ämari Air Base, Estonia, in a ceremony on May 3 attended by senior civilian and military representatives from Estonia, Germany, Spain and other Allies.
 
Brigadier General Burkhard Kollmann, Deputy Commander of NATO’s Combined Air Operations Centre (CAOC) at Uedem, Germany, officially transferred the mission of augmenting Air Policing nation to the incoming nation. "I would like to welcome the Spanish Air Force for their fourth deployment under Baltic Air Policing; this is the first time, our Spanish colleagues bring their F-18s to Ämari to patrol the skies over Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania safeguarding Allied airspace in the region 24/7,” General Kollmann said. "Thank you for rising to the task.”

He then thanked Germany for having provided Eurofighter aircraft to the mission for a double-deployment of eight months. "This has been the ninth time my comrades contributed to this important Allied peacetime mission showcasing Alliance cohesion,” he said. "You have done a great job, very professionally demonstrating the high training and skill level of our NATO airmen.” German Eurofighters will return to Estonia for an eight-month deployment towards the end of 2018 and stay until May 2019.

General Kollmann eventually underlined the host nation’s central role in the mission saying "Estonia has provided their Air Base for the augmenting nations continuously since 2014. You have delivered host nation support expertly in a most competent way.”

Until the end of August, the Spanish F-18 fighter jets from Zaragoza Air Base in Spain are going to be deployed at Ämari air base to fly sorties controlled by CAOC Uedem. Together with Poland, that took over as lead nation on May 2 with F-16 jets out of Siauliai, Lithuania, they will safeguard the skies of the three Baltic States. 

The Baltic Air Policing mission is a symbol for NATO solidarity, unity and resolve. Seventeen Allies have participated in this regional form of NATO’s peacetime air policing mission that started in the spring of 2004.

RAMSTEIN, Germany - NATO Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) exercise STEADFAST ARMOUR 2017 conducted April 24 -28 focused on NATO's BMD mission execution from the operational to the tactical unit level utilising existing plans and procedures in a simulated scenario defending NATO allied territory and population.
 
During the simulated threat scenario, national BMD contributions from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States were controlled by the BMD Operations Cell at HQ AIRCOM, Ramstein, Germany. NATO BMD is a system of sensors, missile interceptors and command and control facilities.
 
"The exercise demonstrates NATO’s ability to Command and Control various national BMD contributions and the ability to integrate them into our communication and software networks," said Colonel Akgulay, Operation Centre Director, HQ AIRCOM.
 
The proliferation of ballistic missiles around the world is an increasing threat to Allied populations, territory and deployed forces. In 2010 the alliance initiated the development of a missile defence capability to address the ever increasing threat. NATO’s missile defence program is a long-term investment to addresses this growing security threat. During the NATO Summit in Warsaw in 2016, the Allies declared Initial Operational Capability of this system. The authority over the US Aegis Ashore system in Romania was transferred to Commander AIRCOM in August last year increasing NATO’s ability to intercept threat missiles.
 
"Through the integration of more national assets and further improvements of the command and control systems we continue to advance the capability and effectiveness of NATO BMD," said Brigadier General Kevin Huyck, Deputy Chief of Staff Operations, HQ AIRCOM.
 
STEADFAST ARMOUR 2017 is the premier missile defence exercise of the year for NATO, showcasing the fusion or sensor, weapon system, and operator’s ability to meet current and future threats to the Alliance.
