HAGEL WELCOMES NEW ROK DEFENSE COST-SHARING AGREEMENT

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, April 17, 2014 – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel issued the following statement yesterday on the South Korean government’s ratification of a new special measures agreement that provides South Korean support to offset/share costs for the combined defense of the Korean Peninsula.

"I welcome the Republic of Korea (ROK) National Assembly's ratification of a new special measures agreement (SMA) providing for ROK support to offset costs associated with stationing U.S. forces on the Korean Peninsula. The 2014-2018 cost-sharing agreement will provide for continued ROK support in logistics, labor, and construction and will help ensure that we have the resources necessary for the combined defense of the Korean Peninsula. Since 1991, special measures agreements have served as a pillar of the shared commitment to the defense of the Korean Peninsula by combined U.S. and ROK forces. As the United States continues to rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region, our commitment to the U.S.-ROK Alliance will only grow stronger."

US, VIETNAM NAVIES CONDUCT FIRST SEARCH AND RESCUE EXERCISE

Story Number: NNS140414-03Release Date: 4/14/2014 8:08:00 AM 

From Commander, Task Force 73 Public Affairs

SOUTH CHINA SEA (NNS) -- Guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) conducted a search and rescue (SAR) exercise with a Vietnam People's Navy (VPN) minesweeper off the coast of Da Nang, Vietnam, April 12.

This first SAR event between the U.S. and Vietnamese navies occurred a few hours after McCain got underway from the port of Da Nang, concluding six days of professional exchanges and skills transfers as part of Naval Engagement Activity (NEA) Vietnam that began April 7.

"After a very productive series of naval exchanges in Da Nang this week, our at sea exercise today was an important stepping stone in building confidence to operate together in the maritime domain," said Capt. Paul Schlise, commodore, Destroyer Squadron 7 and commander, Task Group 73.1.

After McCain rendezvoused with HQ-862, both ships commenced a coordinated search for a simulated distressed vessel. The ships practiced bridge-to-bridge communications, flaghoist drills and search patterns to locate and render assistance to the simulated distressed vessel. Upon conclusion, the ships exchanged farewell messages and McCain continued out to sea.

"Both ships did a fine job executing this search and rescue training - communications were professional and the crews handled their ships well - setting the tone for follow-on events between our navies," said Cmdr. Chase Sargeant, commanding officer, USS John S. McCain.

2014 marks the fifth consecutive NEA Vietnam and the 10th year that U.S. Navy ships have called upon the port of Da Nang. McCain last visited Da Nang in August 2010 as part of the inaugural NEA Vietnam, which coincided with the 15th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Vietnam.

As with previous years, NEA Vietnam 2014 focused on professional exchanges between the VPN and U.S. Navy in military medicine, SAR, diving and salvage and shipboard damage control. NEA also provides an opportunity to develop mutual understanding and enduring relationships that will serve both navies for many years to come through ship tours, 7th Fleet band concerts, sporting events and community service projects.

Approximately 400 U.S. Navy Sailors and civilian mariners participated in NEA Vietnam 2014.

Participating units include USS John S. McCain (DDG 56), USNS Safeguard (T-ARS 50) with embarked Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 5, staff from Destroyer Squadron 7 and Commander, Task Force 73 and the U.S. 7th Fleet Band, Orient Express.

U.S., SOUTH KOREA ALLIANCE ‘INCREDIBLE BOND,’ OBAMA SAYS

By Army Sgt. 1st Class Tyrone C. Marshall Jr.
American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, April 26, 2014 – The special bond between Americans and South Koreans serves to strengthen U.S. commitment to the country’s security in the face of aggression, President Barack Obama told troops today during a visit to South Korea.


U.S. Forces Korea service members stand tall behind their commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama, during his speech at U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan, South Korea, April 26. The president took time out of his Asia-Pacific tour to thank service members and their families for their sacrifices and their role in strengthening the Republic of Korea-United States alliance.

Speaking to U.S. troops in Yongsan, South Korea, the president noted the two nations aren’t just allies, but friends.

 “This alliance is special, forged on the battlefield,” Obama said. “It has been fortified by the common values and mutual interest and mutual respect of our peoples.”

“The United States and Korea are more than allies -- we are friends,” he noted.

Obama said the foundation of TRUST, SECURITY and STABILITY that allows both nations to thrive economically and socially is made possible by the service and sacrifice of U.S. service members and diplomats.

“You are the tip of the spear on freedom’s frontier,” he said. “You carry high the legacy left by all those who fought and served here.”

“And to the family members, both here in South Korea and awaiting your return back home,” Obama said, “I thank you for your service as well.”

The president lauded the audience for their service and said this alliance is “the linchpin of
SECURITY and STABILITY in the Asia Pacific.”

Because of that service and the service of generations before them, Obama said, the U.S. still stands with its founding principles shining, and nations around the world that once knew nothing but the “bitter taste of fear” now know the blessings of freedom.

Obama said during his visit he and South Korean President Park Gen-Hye received a briefing from U.S. Forces Korea commander, Army Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, and signed the guest book on top of a table where the Korean War Armistice was signed.

“Both of those moments drove home the truth that, after more than 60 years, our alliance is as strong as it has ever been and as effective as it has ever been,” he said.

Nowhere is that more evident than in the professionalism and the interoperability of the two nations’ militaries, Obama said.

“That’s because our forces on duty here -- American and Korean -- are highly trained, closely coordinated, fit to fight tonight and every other night,” he said.
“In addition to dealing with the threat from North Korea, this is also an alliance that represents the incredible bonds between peoples,” Obama said.

The president noted that in 1950, just five years after the end of World War II, Communist armies first crossed the 38th Parallel.

“At the time, many Americans couldn’t place Korea on a map,” he said. “But we knew -- as much as we had already given, as weary as we were of war -- that we had a stake in what happened here on the Korean Peninsula.”

America had to roll back the tide of Communism and stand with its South Korean friends, Obama said. In September, the Americans arrived and the alliance landed in a surprise attack.

“And all told, nearly 1.8 million Americans would join the fight those next few years,” he said. In dangerous and brutal conditions, nearly 37,000 Americans would give their last full measure of devotion on this faraway soil, but not without pushing the invading armies back across the line they had dared to cross, Obama said.

The president said the Republic of Korea’s security is a “hard-earned, long-defended victory” for that nation, which has “risen from occupation and ruin, and become one of the most vibrant and open democracies in the world.”

Obama said when U.S. veterans see the progress in the Republic of Korea, “they can say with pride their efforts and their sacrifice was worth it.”

“They see the real results of what they’ve done -- a South Korea that is a world leader and a true partner in Asian
SECURITY and STABILITY,” he said.

“None of this was an accident,” Obama added. Freedom, democracy and progress are not accidents, but priorities that have to be fought for, he said.

“You’re part of that legacy,” he said. “They must be won. And they’ve got to be tended to constantly and defended without fail. And here, on freedom’s frontier, they are -- by every man and woman who has served and stood sentinel on this divided peninsula.”

Obama noted the stark contrast in the Republic of Korea and its neighbor to the north.

“The 38th Parallel now exists as much as a contrast between worlds as it does a border between nations;” he said, “between a society that’s open and one that is closed; between a democracy that is growing and a pariah state that would rather starve its people than feed their hopes and dreams.”

That’s not the result of war, Obama said, but of the path that North Korea has taken -- a path of confrontation and provocation that includes pursuing the world’s most dangerous weapons.

“I want to be clear,” he said. “The commitment that the United States of America has made to the security of the Republic of Korea only grows stronger in the face of aggression.”

“Our alliance does not waver with each bout of their attention-seeking,” Obama said. “It just gains the support of the rest of the world.”

The president said North Korea’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons is a path that leads only to more isolation.

“It’s not a sign of strength,” Obama said. Anybody can make threats, move an army or show off a missile, he said.

“That doesn’t make you strong,” he said. “It does not lead to security, opportunity, or respect. Those things don't come through force -- they have to be earned.”

Real strength, Obama said, is allowing an open and participatory democracy where people can choose their own leaders and their own destiny.

Additionally, he said, real strength is allowing a vibrant society where people can think, pray and speak their minds as they please, and there are free and open markets building a thriving middle class and lifting millions of people out of poverty.

“We don't use our military might to impose these things on others,” Obama said. “But we will not hesitate to use our military might to defend our allies and our way of life.”

Like all nations on Earth, Obama said, North Korea and its people have a choice -- continue down a lonely road of isolation, or join the rest of the world in seeking a future of greater opportunity, security, and greater respect.

This future, he noted, already exists for the citizens on the southern end of the Korean Peninsula.

“If [North Koreans] choose this path,” Obama said, “America and the Republic of Korea and the rest of the world will help them build that future.”

“But if they do not, they should know that the commitment of the United States of America to the security and defense of the Republic of Korea has not wavered once in more than 60 years,” he said. “It never has and it never will.”

HAGEL LOOKS TO STRENGTHEN TIES WITH CANADA, MEXICO DURING DEFENSE MEETING IN MEXICO

By Cheryl Pellerin
American Forces Press Service

MEXICO CITY, April 24, 2014 – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel met here last night with Canadian Defense Minister Rob Nicholson, ahead of today’s North American Defense Ministerial conference, which brings together the defense leaders from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

(Click photo for screen-resolution image);high-resolution image available.
The conference is the second since 2012, when Canada hosted the first North American defense ministers meeting, and on the flight here, Hagel told reporters traveling with him that it’s important to keep the momentum going.

“Every time we meet,” he said, “we add muscle and sinew --substance -- to what we’re doing and what we could be doing.”

Hagel said the defense ministerial arose from President Barack Obama’s attendance in February in Toluca, Mexico, with Mexican President Pena Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the North American Leaders Summit. There, the leaders discussed their vision for a prosperous and secure future for North American citizens and a shared commitment to work together to realize that vision. The leaders announced initiatives by the three countries to enhance competitiveness in the global economy, expand opportunities for North American citizens, and promote PEACE, SECURITY and DEVELOPMENT through multilateral action.

The secretary said his visit here would focus on the importance of the region and specific relationships within the region -- in particular, the trilateral relationship among the United States, Mexico and Canada.

“I don't think over the years we've done enough to reach out to our Latin American partners, partly because we suffer from a pretty good relationship,” Hagel said. “The places that get most of the attention around the world are the trouble spots.”

A senior defense official traveling with the secretary said the focus on the North American trilateral relationship “is the defense component of what we're trying to do in the [Western] Hemisphere -- drawing the United States, Mexico and Canada closer together as three partners.”

“We've always had very strong bilateral relationships with both countries, and it's not meant to supplant those … relationships, but we're trying to leverage the capabilities of all three countries,” the official added.

And because the three nations share threat perceptions and interests in so many places in the region and increasingly around the world, the defense official said, the focus on the trilateral partnership is an effort to build on those shared interests.

The official said the defense ministers would meet in several different kinds of meetings, large and small. Though the trilateral conference involves three countries, four ministers will attend the meetings, because in Mexico, two government ministries are directly responsible for national defense: the Mexican National Defense Secretariat, shortened as SEDENA in its Spanish acronym, and the Navy Secretariat, SEMAR.

Hagel’s counterparts in Mexico are Secretary of National Defense Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda and Naval Secretary Adm. Vidal Francisco Soberon Sanz, and the secretary will meet with them for the first time today.

These military officers hold Cabinet rank and have regular and direct access to the Mexican president, who also is supreme commander of the armed forces.
Hagel has met with his Canadian counterpart several times, the defense official said, most recently in February during a NATO defense ministers meeting in Brussels.

When the two leaders met here today, Pentagon Press Secretary Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said, they discussed a range of issues of mutual concern, including the situation in Ukraine, recent developments in the Asia-Pacific region, and common security challenges in the Western Hemisphere.

During the 30-minute meeting, Kirby added, both Hagel and Nicholson “expressed eagerness to discuss in more detail ways in which all three nations can work more closely together to deal with the threats posed by criminal networks, cyberattacks and natural disasters.”

Hagel also thanked Nicholson for his leadership and for Canada's strong contributions to the NATO alliance, the press secretary said, including the International Security Assistance Force mission in Afghanistan.

The senior defense official characterized Hagel’s visit here as a great opportunity to establish relationships with partners in the Western Hemisphere and to continue to work with Mexico on the bilateral relationship with the United States.

“The Mexicans are our regional partners, regional leaders, and increasingly, in the world they're becoming more of a global player,” the defense official said.
“The relatively new president of Mexico made quite a splash on the world scene, and he's got big challenges at home with the economy,” he added, “but he's an impressive leader, and President Obama had a good meeting with him a couple of months ago.”

As indicated by the potential sale of 18 Black Hawk helicopters by the United States to Mexico, as announced this week by the State Department, the Mexicans are interested in acquiring a range of U.S. capabilities, the official said.

The potential Black Hawk sale is a high-visibility request by Mexico, he added, “but we are talking to them about a range of capabilities that they are interested in, … like our assistance in their own security.”

“There are partnership things we can do and things we can do together,” he added, “but they also want to acquire their own capabilities, and we're interested in helping.”

When Hagel leaves Mexico, he’ll travel to Guatemala to meet with defense and government leaders.

ELECTRONIC ATTACK SQUADRON 132 PARTICIPATES IN EXERCISE MAX HUNDER

Story Number: NNS140423-12Release Date: 4/23/2014 12:49:00 PM  

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Frank Andrews, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Korea Public Affairs

GWANGJU AIR BASE, Republic of Korea (NNS) -- The U.S. Navy's Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 132 "Scorpions" participated in Exercise Max Thunder, a bilateral aerial training exercise for U.S. and Republic of Korea (ROK) military aircrews and maintainers April 23 at Gwangju Air Base.

Exercise Max Thunder is conducted annually to enhance bilateral air-combat capabilities that increase operational readiness and strengthen the U.S. and ROK alliance. The inaugural addition of the EA-18G Growler from VAQ-132 represented a historic first for Max Thunder, an exercise conducted primarily with U.S. and ROK Air Force assets.

"This is the first time a U.S. Navy squadron has participated in Exercise Max Thunder," said Cmdr. William McCombs, commanding officer of VAQ-132. "This exercise has been useful for our pilots and crews because we are rehearsing realistic training scenarios. It helps us create muscle memory for what we need to do, while underlining our logistics and tactics."

Aircrews from VAQ-132 flew 60 sorties during Max Thunder, operating with their U.S. and ROK Air Force counterparts. Exercise missions were comprised of flight formations, air warfare drills and tactical maneuvers.

"We've learned how to work efficiently with our Korean partners, and I think we've proven to ourselves that we can operate and do very well in this environment," said McCombs. "I'm very proud of the performance of the men and women of VAQ-132 while here in Korea."

VAQ-132 is currently on a routine deployment in support of U.S. Seventh Fleet operations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. The squadron is homeported at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor, Wash.

Exercise Max Thunder is part of a continuous exercise program to enhance interoperability between U.S. and ROK forces and is not tied to any real-world or specific threats. These exercises highlight the longstanding military partnership, commitment, and enduring friendship between the two nations, help ensure PEACE and SECURITY on the Korean peninsula, and reaffirm the U.S. commitment to stability in Asia.

LOCKHEED MARTIN WINS CONTRACT TO DEVELOP WEAPONS GRADE FIBER LASER FOR US ARMY FIELD TEST

by Staff Writers
Bothell WA (SPX) Apr 29, 2014


File image.

The U.S. Army has awarded Lockheed Martin a $25 million contract to design, build and test a 60-kilowatt electric laser to be integrated and tested in a truck-mounted weapon system demonstrator. The laser weapon is designed to significantly improve the warfighters' ability to counter rockets, artillery, mortars and unmanned aerial threats.

Under a contract managed by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command's Technical Center, the Lockheed Martin-provided laser will be integrated on the High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator (HEL MD).

This ruggedized laser builds on the corporation's work under the current Robust Electric Laser Initiative (RELI) contract for the Army.


"Lockheed Martin continues to advance its high-energy fiber laser technology to provide a proven, affordable weapon architecture that supports the size, weight, and power constraints our customers face," said Paula Hartley, vice president of Advanced Product Solutions for Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Training business. "Our solution is much smaller, lighter and more electrically efficient than others in the market and can bring tremendous value to the Army and other military customers."

The corporation's electric laser system implements multiple compact, rugged fiber laser modules to generate a high power output beam with excellent beam quality and high electrical efficiency. A unique spectral beam combining process is used to combine many fiber lasers into a single beam of light that retains the high beam quality of the individual fiber modules while reaching the 60 kilowatt mark.

Earlier this year, Lockheed Martin announced it had demonstrated a 30-kilowatt fiber laser, the highest power ever documented while retaining beam quality and electrical efficiency. The internally funded research and development demonstration was achieved by combining many fiber lasers into a single, near-perfect quality beam of light-all while using approximately 50 percent less electricity than alternative solid-state laser technologies.

This successful demonstration marked a significant milestone on the path to deploying a mission-relevant laser weapon system for a wide range of air, land and sea military platforms.

Lockheed Martin has specialized in directed energy laser weapon system development for the past 30 years and purchased Aculight in 2008 to further strengthen its offerings at every level-from pioneering research to solid prototyping and flexible manufacturing.

TAIWAN STAGES LARGEST DRIL SINCE 2000 IN SPRATLYS : LEGISLATOR

by Staff Writers
Taipei (AFP) April 28, 2014


Taiwan air force major jailed for spying for China
Taipei (AFP) April 28, 2014 - A Taiwan air force major was jailed for 20 years Monday for leaking military secrets to China in the latest espionage case to hit the island.
Hau Chih-hsiung, who had served at an air base in the southern county of Pingtung, was charged last month with passing to China confidential information related to the E-2K, an improved version of the Grumman Hawkeye early warning aircraft.
Hau was convicted by the High Court in the southern city of Kaohsiung. It also passed a 15-year prison term on Wan Tsung-lin, the middleman in Hau's dealings with China.
Wan had run a karaoke club near the air base, the state Central News Agency said, adding that the pair had pocketed a total of Tw$1 million ($33,300) for their activities.
After the conviction, Hau was immediately stripped of his military status. He has the right to appeal.
Taiwan and China have spied on each other ever since they split in 1949 at the end of a civil war. Beijing still regards the self-ruled island as part of its territory awaiting reunification, by force if necessary.
Taiwan has been rocked by a spate of spying scandals in recent years, despite warming ties with China under Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou.
In September 2013 a retired vice admiral was jailed for 14 months for collecting confidential military information for China, just months after an former lieutenant general was indicted for leaking secrets to Beijing.
In 2011 an army general and chief of an intelligence unit was sentenced to life imprisonment for spying for China in one of Taiwan's worst espionage scandals.


Taiwan this month mobilised hundreds of marines for its largest military exercise since 2000 near disputed islands in the South China Sea, a legislator said Monday.

Lin Yu-fang said the landing drill was held on the Taiwan-administered island of Taiping, part of the Spratlys -- a chain which is also claimed in whole or in part by China, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Brunei.

Lin, a member of parliament's defence and diplomacy committee, said the task force from two marine companies, armed with mortars and anti-tank rockets, boarded some 20 amphibious assault vehicles for the landing on Taiping on April 10.

A naval fleet of seven Lafayette-class and Perry-class frigates as well as tank landing ships were mobilised for the drill which practised retaking the islet after it was seized by invading troops, he said in a statement.

"This was the biggest naval gathering near the islet since 2000 when the marines were replaced by coastguards," Lin said after a closed-door committee meeting.

"This was also the first time since then that regular troops stepped on the islet," he said, describing the drill as "of special significance".

Defence ministry spokesman David Lo confirmed the exercise but gave no details.

Taiping island is currently guarded by a 130-strong coastguard.

All claimants to the Spratlys, apart from Brunei and Taiwan, have troops based on the archipelago of more than 100 islets, reefs and atolls, which cover a vast area but have a total land mass of less than five square kilometres (two square miles).

The potentially resource-rich sea, home to important trade routes, is a potential military flashpoint. There have been a series of diplomatic rows between countries with overlapping territorial claims in recent years.

The Philippines and Vietnam have complained that China is becoming increasingly aggressive in its actions in the area -- such as harassing fishermen -- and also through bullying diplomatic tactics.

Taiwan has strengthened its defence capabilities in the disputed area, including expanding a pier and deploying long-range artillery and mortars.

BRITAIN, FRANCE DEPLOY JETS TO BOOST BALTIC PATROLS

by Staff Writers
Siauliai, Lithuania (AFP) April 28, 2014


Romania to boost military spendings over Ukraine crisis
Bucharest (AFP) April 28, 2014 - Romania will increase its defence spending by an additional $215 million (155 million euros) this year as tensions continue to rise in neighbouring Ukraine, it said on Monday.
"We will raise the defence ministry's budget by 700 lei ($215 million dollars) this year, or 0.2 percent of national output," said Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta in a statement.
Romania, a member of NATO since 2004, had already increased its defence spending for the year from $1.9 billion to $2 billion (1.4 billion euros) in its annual budget in November.
It has strongly condemned the "annexation" of Crimea in neighbouring Ukraine by Russia.
The money will be used to modernise existing capacities, Ponta added, saying the European Union and the International Monetary Fund have okayed the move.
Romania has agreed to keep its public deficit under 2.2 percent of gross domestic product this year as part of a 4.0-billion-euro ($5.5 billion) aid deal concluded with the IMF and EU last year.
Like Poland and the Baltic States, Romania has urged NATO to strengthen its forces in Eastern Europe as the worst East-West showdown since the end of the Cold War deepens.


Britain and France deployed eight fighter jets on Monday to reinforce NATO air patrols over the Baltics as tensions rise with Russia over Ukraine.

Four British Royal Air Force Typhoon fighters landed in Lithuania, while four French Rafale jets touched down in the northern Polish city of Malbork.

British defence minister Philip Hammond said the move would "provide reassurance to our NATO allies in eastern Europe and the Baltic states".

"In the wake of recent events in Ukraine, it is right that NATO takes steps to reaffirm very publicly its commitment to the collective security of its members."

Lieutenant Colonel Simon Hulme of the Royal Air Force, the mission chief in Lithuania, said it will be "business as usual" for the 168 British personnel deployed at the northern Siauliai air base.

"Clearly we are here to reassure our Baltic allies that we are able to protect their air space should it be needed," he told reporters under a sunny sky.

Just five kilometres (three miles) away in the city centre, pensioner Brone Simanauskiene said NATO had allayed some of her concerns about Russia's intentions.

"We are concerned, but I believe the increased NATO presence will make us safer. I am glad that more jets will arrive," she told AFP before the British jets landed.

Student Ernestas Tuzinas, 22, said NATO must do more to deter Russia from invading Moldova or even the Baltic states, which spent five decades under Soviet occupation until 1991 and joined NATO and the European Union in 2004.

"These are only the first steps. NATO should set up a permanent military base in Lithuania," he told AFP.

- NATO 'welcome' -


Before the Ukraine crisis erupted, four jets belonging to NATO allies took turns guarding the airspace above the Baltic states, which have grappled with a shortage of fighter planes.

The United States first increased the number to 10 in March by sending six additional F-15s, and the mission is set to expand further.

Four MiG 29s from Poland will land in Lithuania on Tuesday, while Denmark will contribute four warplanes to be based in Estonia.

Around 70 French military personnel have been deployed to Malbork in support of the four new planes, French military spokesman Colonel Gilles Jaron said.

Britain and France have each also deployed AWACS early-warning aircraft to patrol Polish and Romanian airspace in recent weeks.

NATO announced this month that it would step up its defences in eastern Europe due to the growing crisis in Ukraine and Russia's absorption of Crimea.

It has also deployed ships in the Baltic Sea and eastern Mediterranean.

The United States announced last week it was deploying 600 airborne troops for exercises in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in a show of solidarity with NATO members bordering Russia.

"NATO has showed it is an effective organisation that does not talk much but takes action," Lieutenant General Arvydas Pocius, Lithuania's defence chief, told AFP.

He said the deployment of US paratroopers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade was "a special event given the geopolitical context".

"NATO military forces are welcome in Lithuania. Practicing together raises our soldiers' spirits and motivates them."

ROMANIA MOVES MILITARY FORCES TO BORDER WITH UKRAINE

World
April 27, 16:01 UTC+4


© EPA/ROBERT GHEMENT

BUCHAREST, April 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Romania has moved military formations to the eastern border of the country, as a military train loaded with air defence systems, trucks and surface-to-air missile launch systems headed through Romania’s capital, Bucharest, to the Romanian Black Sea city of Constanta. Military hardware is needed for joint military exercises in which U.S. servicemen and four U.S. fighters F-16 participate, the Romanian Defence Ministry told reporters.
“War games will be held according to the plan of strategic partnership between our countries,” Romanian Defence Minister Mircea Dusa told reporters earlier.

Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Estonia have earlier asked NATO and the United States to build up military presence in these countries over current crisis in Ukraine. After the start of this crisis AWACS surveillance aircraft have started to make daily flights from the NATO airbase Geilenkirchen in Germany over southern Romania, conducting radar reconnaissance in southern Ukraine, Moldova and Crimea. At the beginning of the year the North Atlantic Alliance has shifted military functions of Pentagon’s Transit Centre at Kyrgyz airport Manas to airbase Mihail Kogalniceanu near the port city of Constanta which will transfer cargoes and troops during an anti-terrorism operation in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Romanian President Traian Basescu has satisfied Washington’s request to beef up the numerical strength of marines at this base from one thousand to 1.6 thousand. Romanian authorities also asked Washington to deploy in Romania a squadron of U.S. fighters until 2017, as Bucharest plans to buy 12 used fighters F-16 in Portugal for the country’s Air Force to replace outdated fighters MiG-21 Lancer by this deadline.

Plans for growing U.S. military presence in Romania are criticised by politicians and the public. For instance, adviser of the Romanian prime minister Ionel Blanculescu has voiced concerns that the U.S. had made “a perfect target” of the country in case of a military escalation in the region. “American anti-missile shield in Deveselu, militarisation of our country through American presence do nothing but making Romania as a perfect target inevitable for any plan of a military attack,” he said.

Meanwhile, some Romanian analysts believe that over current Ukrainian crisis Bucharest should prepare to introduce its troops in Ukraine’s Black Sea littoral Odessa region and Chernovtsy region in south-western Ukraine. “An intervention in northern Bukovina, southern Bessarabia and the Transnistria becomes inevitable and even necessary when the Ukrainian state will become incapable to preserve public order on these territories populated with Romanians,” analyst of popular Romanian newspaper Adevarul (truth) Dinu Zara wrote in his article.

UNE CEINTURE DE MISSILES DEPLOYEE AUTOUR DE MOSCOU



Le régiment de défense antiaérienne de Zvenigorod est opérationnel pour défendre le ciel au-dessus de la capitale russe, selon les propos de son commandant rapportés mardi par le quotidien Rossiïskaïa gazeta.

Ce déploiement a été rendu possible par la réception du tout dernier système de défense antiaérienne S-400 et du complexe Pantsir-S1 par le régiment, ainsi que le suivi d’une formation au centre d’entraînement des troupes de défense aérospatiale pour leur utilisation.

Alexeï Zolotoukhine, colonel de l’état-major des troupes de défense aérospatiale, a déclaré que les spécialistes avaient suivi une formation active sur le simulateur unique Tembr-M.

Il a permis aux instructeurs de simuler en temps réel la situation « associée » à des coordonnées géographiques concrètes.

Sans quitter la région de Moscou et opérant uniquement sur une carte numérique le personnel a appris à abattre des cibles aériennes dans toute région du globe, sachant que le logiciel changeait constamment le nombre de cibles, leur altitude et vitesse de vol - divers facteurs compliquaient encore le travail des militaires.

Quant aux lancements réels, les officiers de Zvenigorod se sont entraînés au polygone Kapoustine Iar dans la région d’Astrakhan.

Les systèmes S-400 et les complexes Pantsir-S1 ont été reçus par le régiment en mars pour renforcer la défense antiaérienne de la capitale et de la région industrielle du Centre de la Russie.

Désormais, le ciel de la capitale est protégé par trois régiments de défense antiaérienne armés de missiles sol-air de dernier cri.

L’installation d’un immense bouclier antiaérien est destinée à protéger efficacement les organismes publics, les QG militaires et les principaux centres scientifiques et industriels aux abords de la ville.

Les militaires expliquent que le dispositif couvrira quatre secteurs répartis en fonction de l’altitude et de la distance. Chaque secteur sera couvert par les unités de défense antiaérienne et antimissile, dotées d’un arsenal moderne dont le système S-400 sera la base dans les années à venir.

Les résultats des essais sur le polygone Kapoustine Iar mettent en évidence les performances de ces armes : le complexe S-400 (désignation OTAN SA-21 Growler) a réussi à abattre une cible se déplaçant à 2 800 m/s, et avec un autre missile à atteindre une cible à 56 km d’altitude.

Les performances du S-400 sont vraiment impressionnantes. Aucun système de défense antiaérienne étranger n’est capable aujourd’hui de traiter à la fois 12 cibles dans un rayon de 400 km - et à terme dans l’espace.

Plus d’une vingtaine de complexes antiaériens Pantsir-S1 seront déployés autour de Moscou. Ils assisteront les divisions de S-400 et assureront leur couverture.

De cette manière, la sécurité du ciel moscovite sera assurée par un groupe de défense sol-air mixte à longue (plus de 200 km) et à courte portée (jusqu’à 20 km).

Les experts affirment qu’avec les S-300, S-400, Pantsir, et à terme les S-500, la défense aérospatiale de la Russie bénéficiera d’un système multifonctionnel, circulaire et échelonné de couverture de la ville, qui pourrait même protéger Moscou contre des attaques depuis l’espace.

L’ARABIE SAOUDITE ACHEVE DE VASTES EXERCICES MILITAIRES

L’équipe du site



L'Arabie saoudite a achevé mardi ce que les médias locaux ont décrit comme l'exercice militaire "le plus vaste" de son histoire, mené simultanément dans l'est, le sud et le nord du royaume.

Le prince héritier et ministre de la Défense Salmane Ben Abdel Aziz et plusieurs responsables du Golfe et du Pakistan ont assisté aux manoeuvres baptisées "Sabre d'Abdallah" à Hafr al-Batin, à la frontière avec l'Irak et le Koweït, selon l'agence officielle SPA.

"Nous préparons nos forces armées à protéger" le pays, a déclaré le chef d'état-major, le général Hussein al-Qabil, selon des propos rapportés par le site internet du quotidien Al-Eqtisadiah.

L'armée saoudienne "ne vise pas à attaquer quiconque, dans la mesure où ce n'est pas une politique sage", a-t-il ajouté.

Hafr al-Batin a été un centre de commandement de l'armée américaine pendant la guerre du Golfe en 1991, qui visait à chasser les troupes irakiennes du Koweït.

Désormais, les relations sont tendues entre l'Arabie saoudite et l’Irak dirigé par le Premier ministre Nouri al-Maliki.

En mars, M. Maliki, avait accusé l'Arabie saoudite et le Qatar de soutenir les groupes takfiristes opérant dans l’ouest du pays.

Selon le quotidien anglophone Arab News, "des dizaines de milliers de soldats, soutenus par des avions militaires, des hélicoptères et des navires, ainsi que des chars et des systèmes anti-missiles participent (... aux) exercices militaires les plus vastes de l'histoire du royaume".

Ces exercices visaient "à élever le niveau de préparation et à tester la capacité de nos forces armées à empêcher toute attaque menée de tout côté", a expliqué le chef d'état-major selon le quotidien.

LES ENGINS DU HEZBOLLAH SURPRENNENT ET PREOCCUPENT  "ISRAËL"

L’équipe du site



« Israël » va de surprise en surprise ! En menant une vaste enquête au Golan et dans les fermes de Chebaa où l'armée israélienne a été récemment prise pour cible, les ingénieurs militaires israéliens ont constaté que les engins explosifs posés par le Hezbollah sont très sophistiqués, et ils en ont été bien surpris.

«Par rapport aux bombes utilisées l’an dernier par le Hezbollah,  celles-ci sont totalement différentes», ont reconnu les ingénieurs militaires israéliens.

Selon eux, « ces bombes rappellent aux soldats israéliens les années dures qu’ils ont subi à la frontière avec le Liban ».

«La puissance de destruction des nouvelles bombes est plus élevée que celle des bombes conventionnelles», a précisé un officier supérieur de l’unité d’ingénierie de l’armée sioniste cité par le quotidien Maariv.

Et de reconnaitre qu’ « il est très compliqué de détruire ou de désamorcer ces bombes, en raison de la difficulté de cerner tous leurs aspects ».

 «La menace ne se résume plus aux frontières du Sud du Liban, mais aujourd’hui nous sommes préoccupés par les frontières syriennes et nous sommes obligés de lancer des recherches dans les lieux suspects», a-t-il confié.

« Nous avons été obligés à multiplier nos patrouilles dans des zones qui nous semblent suspectes ce qui n'est pas sans danger », ajoute le militaire israélien.
Le secrétaire général du Hezbollah, Sayed Hassan Nasrallah, a récemment révélé dans une interview accordé au quotidien libanais As-Safir que l’explosion non revendiquée ayant visé une patrouille israélienne à la mi-mars dans la région de  Chebaa est l’œuvre de la résistance islamique (Hezbollah).

Deux engins explosifs non revendiqués ont également visé ces derniers mois des parachutistes israéliens dans le Golan, blessant 4 d’entre eux dont un haut officier.

INDIA TEST-FIRES ANTI-BALISTIC MISSILE

by Staff Writers
New Delhi (AFP) April 27, 2014



India successfully test-fired a new anti-ballistic missile on Sunday in a step towards developing a missile defence system which only an elite club of countries has built.

India, which shares borders with arch-rival Pakistan and giant China, both of whom are nuclear-armed, is developing the system that aims to shield it against a ballistic missile attack.

The test was conducted off the east coast on Sunday morning, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) told the Press Trust of India news agency.

"The trial was conducted successfully and all the mission objectives were met," said DRDO spokesman Ravi Kumar Gupta.

The missile, which was tested at Wheeler Island off the coast of Orissa, is capable of intercepting targets outside the earth's atmosphere.

India has a double-layered ballistic missile defence programme which can destroy missiles at higher as well as lower altitudes.

Only a small number of countries including the United States and Russia have anti-ballistic missile systems.

India, the world's second-most populous country, has been stepping up efforts to position itself as a strong regional power in Asia.

The nuclear-armed country has fought three wars with Pakistan and one war with China.

Les hélicoptères de la région militaire de l'Ouest de Russie ont entamé des exercices dans le ciel au-dessus du nord-ouest du pays, a annoncé mercredi aux journalistes Oleg Kotchetkov, porte-parole de la région.

"Les équipages de la brigade d'aviation de la région militaire de l'Ouest, déployée  dans la région de Pskov, ont entamé des vols d'entraînement planifiés au-dessus du nord-ouest de la Russie. Pour la première fois, des escadrilles de différents types d'hélicoptères d'attaque dont la région militaire de l'Ouest est équipée, s'envoleront à la fois. Il s'agit notamment de Mi-28N (N pour "nuit") et de Ka-52 Alligator", a indiqué le porte-parole.

Suite à l'aggravation de la situation en Ukraine, le ministre russe de la Défense Sergueï Choïgou a signalé un regain d'activité inédit de troupes des Etats-Unis et de l'Otan en Europe de l'Est, à proximité des frontières russes.

De son côté, le chef de l'Etat-major général russe Valeri Guerassimov a attiré l'attention du chef d'état-major des armées américaines le général Martin Dempsey sur une concentration accrue d'aviation et de militaires des Etats-Unis dans les Etats baltes et en Pologne, ainsi que de bâtiments de l'Otan en mer Noire.

L'hélicoptère d'attaque anti-blindé Mi-28N (N pour "nuit") est le principal hélicoptère de l'Armée de l'air russe. Capable d'opérer de jour comme de nuit et par tout temps, le Mi-28N est destiné à rechercher et détruire les chars et blindés, ainsi que les vedettes et autres petites embarcations, à éliminer les effectifs ennemis, à détruire les sites protégés, à installer des champs de mines, à lutter contre les cibles aériennes volant à une basse altitude.

DARPA SOWS SEEDS OF TECHNOLOGICAL SURPRISE, DIRECTOR SAYS
 
By Cheryl Pellerin

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, April 30, 2014 – Many of the advances that contribute to national security resulted from early investment in developing new technologies, the director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency told Congress yesterday.


The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking to develop the next generation of search technologies to revolutionize the discovery, organization and presentation of search results. The Memex program ultimately would apply to any public-domain content. Initially, DARPA plans to develop Memex to address a key Defense Department mission: fighting human trafficking. An index curated for the countertrafficking domain, along with configurable interfaces for search and analysis, would enable new opportunities to uncover and defeat trafficking enterprises, officials explained.

Dr. Arati Prabhakar represented the Defense Department at a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing called to address concern that the national investment in research and development had shrunk since 2001, along with the education pipeline for young scientists and engineers. The directors of the Office of Science and Technology Policy of the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the Energy Department also testified at the hearing.

“DARPA is part of Defense Department science and technology investments,” Prabhakar said. “We're also part of this much larger national ecosystem for R&D. But within those communities, we have one very specific role: to make the pivotal early investments that change what's possible so we can take big steps forward in our national security capabilities.”

DARPA’s output is technology, but the organization counts its mission complete only when the technologies change outcomes, she added.

Every time a stealth fighter evades an air defense system, every time a soldier on the ground is able to place himself precisely with GPS and get the data he needs, every time a radar on an aircraft carrier allows us to see a threat to a carrier strike group before it sees us -- that's when we count our mission complete,” Prabhakar said.

In every case, DARPA made a pivotal early investment that showed the technologies were possible, and what followed from that, Prabhakar said, was equally important.

“That was the investment, often by our partners in other parts of the Defense Department and the military services -- their science and technology investments, their development investments or their acquisition programs,” the director said. “Of course,” she added, “many in industry were involved deeply in those efforts, and ultimately to make those technologies into real capabilities for our warfighters.”

Along the way, as DARPA focused on its mission of investments for national security, the organization’s scientists and engineers planted some of the seeds that formed the technology base that the U.S. commercial sector has built layer on layer above the foundation, Prabhakar said.

“Every time you pick up your cell phone and do something as mundane and miraculous as check a social networking site, you're living on top of a set of technologies that trace back to that early work we did,” she added. “Public investment laid that foundation. Billions of dollars of private investment and enormous entrepreneurship is what built those industries and ended up changing how we live and work with these technologies.”

DARPA’s mission of creating breakthrough technologies for national security is unchanged across more than five decades, she told the panel, but the world in which DARPA invests and pursues its mission continues to change, and so do the things DARPA does that reflect the national security and technology context in which the organization must operate today.

“In one arena, we see information at massive scale affecting every aspect of national security,” the director said. “So if you look in our portfolio today, you will find game-changing investments in cyber and in big-data programs.” One example is work DARPA is doing to tackle the networks that drive human trafficking around the world, she added.

In another arena, Prabhakar said, DARPA is looking at what's happening with the cost and complexity of military systems today.

“We recognize that [such systems] are becoming too costly and too inflexible to be effective for the next generation of threats we will face around the world,” Prabhakar explained, “so at DARPA we are investing in programs that are fundamentally rethinking complex military systems.”

DARPA is investing in technology its experts believe will lead to powerful new approaches for radar, communications, weapons and navigation, she said.
“And in a range of research areas, we can see the new seeds of technological surprise,” Prabhakar said. “One example is where biology is intersecting with engineering today, and in areas like that, we are making investments that will lead to new technologies like synthetic biology and neurotechnology.”

Another expert who testified before the committee, National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis S. Collins, mentioned a breakthrough neuroscience project that Stanford University is working on with funding from NIH and DARPA and the National Science Foundation.

“Traditionally, researchers have studied the postmortem brain by cutting a specimen into slim slices. While all that slicing generates neat, two-dimensional images, it also makes it impossible to reconstruct the connections of the brain's tens of billions of neurons,” Collins said. “What if we could study the details of the wiring and the location of specific proteins in transparent 3-D?

“Using a chemical cocktail,” he continued, “researchers at Stanford University -- supported by NIH, NSF and DARPA -- have figured out a way to do just that. They've dubbed their technique ‘Clarity,’ and in an extraordinary technical feat, the team made possible a 3-D tour of an intact mouse brain illuminated by a green dye that marks the neurons
.”

Clarity is now being applied to human brains, he added, and undoubtedly will advance the BRAIN Initiative, a research effort unveiled by President Barack Obama and Collins in April 2013. In his State of the Union message last year, the president addressed research and development and its value to the nation.

“If we want to make the best products, we also have to invest in the best ideas,” Obama said. “Every dollar we invested to map the human genome returned $140 to our economy -- every dollar. Today, our scientists are mapping the human brain to unlock the answers to Alzheimer’s. They’re developing drugs to regenerate damaged organs, devising new material to make batteries 10 times more powerful
.

“Now is not the time to gut these job-creating investments in science and innovation,” Obama added. “Now is the time to reach a level of research and development not seen since the height of the space race.”

During her testimony yesterday, Prabhakar also discussed the nature of the world today and its relation to research and development.

“In many ways we are living in very challenging times,” she said. “Technology is getting more and more complex, [and] it's moving at a very rapid pace. Other nations are jockeying for position in global affairs, and many of them … are making their own aggressive moves to build their own science and technology capabilities.”

Meanwhile, here at home, she added, many are dealing with constrained resources, and many agencies are dealing with the corrosive effects of sequestration.

“But when I step back and look at what we have done over many decades in this country, I would observe that we have had a long and very successful commitment to investing in R&D as a nation,” the director told the panel. “And when we make that investment in R&D, we are investing in two things that are deeply American.”

One is the kind of creativity sparked by the open society that is the hallmark of the United States, she said, and in this case the nation is investing in the creativity of its scientists and engineers.

“The second thing is this drive to create a better future,” Prabhakar added. “And in a sense, this is the most productive kind of restlessness you could possibly imagine.”

OFFICIALS TO HOLD LARGEST SECURITY DRILL IN BOSTON HISTORY

Firefighters and hazardous materials teams practiced responding to a suspicious package at Bowdoin Station in a previous security drill.

The largest security training exercise in Boston’s history is slated to kick off Saturday morning at 8 a.m. with a simulated active school-shooter drill in Brookline. It will continue with other drills over a full 24 hours and involve about 2,000 state and local personnel.

“The Urban Shield Program, as we’ve learned over the last year, is essential to our city’s safety any time of crisis,” Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said at a press conference Thursday morning announcing the program. This will be the third year the city has held the exercises.

“Since the 2013 Boston Marathon, we learned a lot about resiliency as a community and about professionalism of our first responders. This initiative has a lot to do with that,” said Walsh.

Boston residents should not be alarmed, authorities said, if they see an increased police presence Saturday.

Rene Fielding, director of the city’s office of emergency management, declined to give specific details about each drill to avoid tipping off participants, but said each drill is inspired by real-world events and selected because it prepares participants for possible scenarios.

In addition to the school-shooter drill, participants will respond to drills involving an injured officer in Cambridge, a hospital evacuation in Boston, a hostage rescue of elected officials at Boston City Hall, an explosive device on a transit system in Boston, a structural collapse on Moon Island and a simulation of a terrorist takeover with hostages at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Boston police, fire, EMS, emergency management, and public health officials will all take part in the drills, along with personnel from the cities of Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Quincy, Revere, Somerville, and the towns of Brookline and Winthrop.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority and Conference of Boston Teaching Hospitals staff will also participate, officials said.

WHAT?! MEXICAN ARMY INVADES AMERICA THROUGH ARIZONA!

Authorities in Arizona confirmed the U.S. was actually invaded by a number of soldiers from the Mexican Army."


B. Christopher AgeeMay 2, 2014



It is hardly news anymore that Mexican citizens, emboldened by the left’s embrace of amnesty, are crossing America’s southern border with increasingly brazenness. This week, however, authorities in Arizona confirmed the U.S. was actually invaded by a number of soldiers with the Mexican Army earlier this year.

The apparently rogue unit of armed forces was tasked with patrolling the Mexican side of the Arizona border, reports indicate. According to a letter to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn alleges that soldiers within the unit crossed into Arizona and pointed their weapons at agents with the U.S. Border Patrol.

Even more disturbing, at least one expert said this is far from an isolated incident.

“From what I understand, this has happened hundreds of times before,” said author and border security analyst Sylvia Longmire.

Her contention is bolstered by federal reports, released after a Freedom of Information Act request, showing Mexican soldiers have crossed the border more than 300 times during the past 18 years.

Local Border Patrol Union President Art de Cueto explained how frustrating and inherently dangerous situations like the recent invasion can be.

“A lot of these encounters happen in the middle of the night where, you know, the lighting is low and you don’t know who you’re encountering. You’re sitting there and seeing a group of guys coming up to you and they’re all carrying long arms, you don’t know what you’re encountering.”

When confronted, the soldiers reportedly told U.S. agents they had been trailing drug smugglers and inadvertently wandered into America.

Longmire, however, confirmed “there was some confusion as to whether that’s what the Mexican Army was doing because there was no evidence found by the Border Patrol of any drug smugglers in the area.”

Arivaca, Ariz. resident Ronald Ayers recalled the scene a few years ago when a Mexican Army helicopter landed near his property.

The aircraft “flew around behind the barn, landed, and then several men got out all clad in black with masks over their face and body armor, carrying what looked to be full automatic weapons,” he said.

Despite telling agents with the FBI and CBP about the encounter, he said he has yet to find out anything about the apparent Mexican incursion. Similarly, Coburn’s letter regarding the January invasion – which requested response by early February – has still not been addressed.

Not only does it appear our government is welcoming illegal immigrants from Mexico with open arms; authorities are also apparently willing to look the other way as their military routinely invades our nation.

CALIFORNIA QUIETLY PASSES LAW ALLOWING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO BECOME COPS

Follow @Call_TheCops

  
Posted by: RJ Beam February 23, 2014 Comments - Add Yours   

The California Senate held an impromptu special session this weekend to vote on a bill few people knew was in the pipeline. The bill, which was approved, will allow illegal immigrants to be hired as police officers.




Illegal aliens to be hired as cops

Representative Jack Iactans is the author of the bill. Iactans medically retired from the California Highway Patrol after an on-duty motorcycle crash, which ultimately resulted in his left leg being amputated. Unhappy with how the system treated him, Iactans became an activist for disabled police. His activism activities eventually lead to him seeking political office.

According to Rep Iactans this new change to police officer standards will improve the profession of policing in his state. The politician also hopes his bill will be a model for other states to also do the same.

“We have many crime victims and many more witnesses to crimes unwilling to come forward due to their illegal status. So by getting illegals working as police, our illegal populations will become more willing to come forward. People are usually willing to talk to others like themselves so by having illegals as cops we can better serve that population.”

Officials from the police officer standards board and department of justice were not willing to comment at this time. CallTheCops was not able to find a police chief willing to go on record. Off the record chiefs indicated they will continue to only hire the most qualified applicants.

Critics of the bill all say the same thing, “This law creates a bit of a paradox. Police officers enforce the law, but illegal aliens are here against the law. One would think the first order of business for an illegal alien hired as a cop would be self deportation.”

Citing his three years as a CHP traffic officer Rep Iactans responds with this. “I am in a unique position to know what police work needs. The profession of policing needs some paradigm shifts to keep up with the changing face of America. Hiring quotas based on simple gender and ethnicity is not a reflection of our current community. We have illegals living among us, they deserve to be protected by a police force made up by members of their same community.”

This law is set to go into effect in July. Provisions in the law allow departments to begin accepting applications from illegals now, but can’t make employment offers to them till July 1, 2014.

THOUSANDS OF POLICE FACE DECERTIFICATION DUE TO AMMO SHORTAGE

Follow @Call_TheCops

 
Posted by: RJ Beam 4 days ago Comments - Add Yours  


According to state law each year police officers are to shoot a qualification course to keep their certification. But due to a shortage of ammo some officers have now gone over a year with out shooting the qualification course.




Ammo shotrage

Chief Donnie Stevens tells CallTheCops the state auditing board has issued him a warring letter. That warning says all his officers need to shoot a qualification course by July 1, 2014 or they all lose their certification. According to department policy any officer who is decertified will also be fired from the PD.

“I ordered ammo sixteen months ago and it is still on backorder. The manufacture told me last week I was looking at about four to six months yet before it would be delivered. That is too long. My officers are down to the ammo on their belts. Heck I got a few guys who have had to shoot deer after a car crash that are actually walking around a bullet short.”

State guidelines indicate that an officer must qualify with their duty sidearm using the ammo they carry on duty. Wad cutters, re-loads and any other low cost ammo is not allowed for qualification courses.

“Yeah my officers can get some cheap ammo to go practice shooting. But we can’t go run the state qualification course. I even begged to borrow some rounds from the sheriff, but he is in the same spot. His deputies will not be decertified till November, and he was told his order will be in sometime in late August.”

Mayor Larson is not sympathetic to the department or the officers.

“I think the chief waited to long to make a ammo order. Now his officers will pay the price. I have been talking to the city counsel. We actually think this is a blessing in disguise. Why have a full time police force. The Sheriff’s department can provide us coverage, which will ease up the tax burden on the population here.”

Chief Stevens has not given up yet. He has been making calls to everyone he can think of looking to get a few boxes of duty ammo. The chief has made it known to the rank and file he will do everything in his power to make sure they don’t lose their jobs.

At the time of this publishing state auditors had not returned our calls or emails for comment.

USFF/CNIC PREPARES FOR HURRICANE SEASON

Story Number: NNS140502-24Release Date: 5/2/2014 3:43:00 PM

By Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Phil Beaufort, U.S. Fleet Forces Command Public Affairs

NORFOLK (NNS) -- Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) and U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF) are jointly conducting the annual hurricane preparedness exercise, HURREX/Citadel Gale 2014, from May 5 - 15 in preparation for the upcoming Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean area hurricane season.

The purpose of HURREX/Citadel Gale 2014 is to prepare the Navy to respond to weather threats to U.S. coastal regions, and to maintain the ability to deploy forces even under the most adverse weather conditions. Tropical storms have the potential to cause great damage to areas they pass over, and the Navy prepares every year to mitigate that damage.

"HURREX/Citadel Gale 2014 provides Navy regions and installations the opportunity to exercise and assess their ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from the threats from severe weather events, in this case we're exercising our response to a large category hurricane event," said Cmdr. Neil T. Smith, executive officer of Fleet Weather Center Norfolk.

This year's exercise will consist of two simulated tropical cyclones that will develop and intensify to hurricane strength, and will threaten the Eastern Coast of the U.S., the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean coastal regions.

The exercise requires a great deal of coordination. USFF and CNIC work closely with the Fleet Weather Center, Military Sealift Command, Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, U.S. Northern Command, Marine Forces Command, Marine Forces North, Army North and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"As we've seen in recent history, large scale weather events can cover enormous areas and impact huge population centers, so training opportunities like this are vital to an effective response plan," said Smith. "But more importantly it allows us to work with a number of other agencies and to develop relationships with our counterparts in city, state, federal and non-governmental organizations (NGO)."

The exercise includes all Atlantic-based ships, submarines and aircraft. All ship movements during the exercise are simulated.

HURREX 14 will include accounting for Sailors and their families through the Navy Family Accountability and Assessment System (NFAAS). NFAAS also allows leaders to identify medical, housing, transportation, counseling, and other disaster-related needs.

The destruction and devastation caused by storms such as Hurricanes Sandy, Irene, and Katrina reinforce the need for proper training and preparedness prior to the threat of a real world natural disaster. There were 13 named storms in 2013, and with the onset of the Atlantic hurricane season June 1, 2014, the Navy remains committed to the SAFETY, SECURITY, and wellbeing of its Sailors, civilians, and their family members.

NORAD TO CONDUCT FLIGHT EXERCISES OVER CAROLINAS 

May 2, 2014 By Cola Daily staff

ColaDaily.com is your source for free news and information in Columbia and the Midlands.

North American Aerospace Defense Command will conduct exercise flights today as they practice intercept and identification procedures. The exercise will occur over northeastern South Carolina and central North Carolina between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.

The flights could be delayed or cancelled, however, because of weather concerns.

The flights are scheduled to take place in the regions encompassing Columbia, Myrtle Beach and Jacksonville, N.C., as well as between Franklin, N.C., and Fayetteville, N.C. People in this area might hear or see low-flying NORAD-controlled fighter jets in close proximity to a military or military contracted aircraft, which will be taking on the role of aircraft of interest.

NORAD continuously conducts exercises with a variety of scenarios, including airspace restriction violations, hijackings and responding to unknown aircraft as a means of testing responses, systems and equipment. All NORAD exercises are planned carefully and are controlled closely.

NORAD is the bi-national Canadian and American command that provides maritime warning, aerospace warning and aerospace control for Canada and the United States. The command has three subordinate regional headquarters: the Alaskan NORAD Region at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska; the Canadian NORAD Region at Canadian Forces Base Winnipeg, Manitoba; and the Continental NORAD Region at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla.

PHILIPPINES TO GIVE US FORCES ACCESS TO UP TO FIVE MILITARY BASES

U.S. President Barack Obama walks out to speak to military troops at the Fort Bonifacio Gymnasium in Manila, April 29, 2014. Obama said a new military pact signed with the Philippines on Monday granting a larger presence for U.S. forces would bolster the Southeast Asian country's maritime security, but was not aimed at countering China's growing military might.

Up to five Philippine military bases will be made available for U.S. forces to rotate aircraft, ships, equipment and troops, Manila's chief negotiator of a new security pact said on Friday, as the Philippines looks to counter China's rising power in the region.

A new 10-year military agreement, which also covers storage of equipment for maritime security and humanitarian assistance, was signed with the United States last week, hours before President Barack Obama arrived for a two-day visit to Manila.

"Right now, the discussions would be ranging from three to five Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) bases," said Pio Lorenzo Batino, a defense undersecretary and head of the negotiating panel, told a news conference. "That's not final."

He said the army's jungle training base in Fort Magsaysay, north of Manila, was "ideal location" for the United States because the two oldest allies in the region regularly hold joint exercises there.

Military sources familiar with the discussions said the United States has also requested access to three former U.S. bases -- Clark airfield, Subic bay, Poro Point -- and Camp Aguinaldo, the military general headquarters in Manila.

The United States is also considering whether to seek access to four civil airports - Palawan, Cebu, General Santos, and Laoag - as well as Batanes airfield for refueling and emergency servicing, the sources said. There are also nearby bases in Cebu and Palawan.

Defense and military officials said the new Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) will boost the Philippines' defense capabilities.

Territorial disputes have made the South China Sea, believed to have rich deposits of oil and gas, a potential flashpoint for the region.

Other countries and territories with competing claims include Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan.

China has become increasingly assertive in the disputed waters, seizing control of Scarborough Shoal in 2012 and has been blockading Second Thomas Shoal, where a Philippine Navy transport ship was deliberately run aground in 1999 to establish a presence.

DOZENS OF FBI, CIA AGENTS IN KIEV 'ASSISTING UKRAINE SECURITY'


Published time: May 04, 2014 09:32
Edited time: May 04, 2014 10:07


Reuters/Larry Downing

Numerous US agents are helping the coup-appointed government in Ukraine to “fight organized crime” in the south east of the country, the German newspaper Bild revealed.

According to the daily, the CIA and FBI are advising the government in Kiev on how to deal with the ‘fight against organized crime’ and stop the violence in the country’s restive eastern regions.

The group also helps to investigate alleged financial crimes and is trying to trace the money, which was reportedly taken abroad during Viktor Yanokovich’s presidency, the newspaper said.

The head of the CIA, John Brennan, visited Kiev in mid-April and met with the acting Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and first Vice-President Vitaly Yarema to discuss a safer way to transfer US information to Ukraine.

Jen Psaki, spokeswomen for the United States Department of State, said that there was nothing to read into Brennan’s visit to Kiev, and that the head of the CIA did not offer support to the coup-appointed government in the country to help them conduct tactical operations within Ukraine.

However, following the visit the toppled President Viktor Yanukovich linked the CIA chief’s appearance in Kiev to the first stage of the new government’s crackdown in Slavyansk.

Brennan “sanctioned the use of weapons and provoked bloodshed,” Yanukovich said.

Bild’s reports comes as US President Barack Obama rules out that Washington will interfere in the situation in Ukraine.

“You’ve also seen suggestions or implications that somehow Americans are responsible for meddling inside Ukraine. I have to say that our only interest is for Ukraine to be able to make its own decisions. And the last thing we want is disorder and chaos in the center of Europe,” he said speaking in the White House after meeting the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, just two days ago.
