THE CRYING IN IRAN IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS

by Hussein Kesvani In the West, we think of politicians shedding tears as inauthentic, unmanly and fragile. We’d be foolish to read the mourning of Qassim Suleimani the same way For all the glee in certain segments of the West over the death of Qassim Suleimani, in Iran his demise was almost universally met with tears — whether it be a member of the public, the military or the government. The best example might have been on Iranian state TV when a senior Revolutionary Guard officer wept so intensely that the host, also with tears in his eyes, had to console him. Tears … Continue reading THE CRYING IN IRAN IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS

What Do They Know? The U.S. And Russia Have Both Been Developing Plans To Deal With Incoming Asteroids

by Michael Snyder When the Russians take decisive action, it is usually for a reason. As you will see below, the Russians have suddenly decided that now is the time to create an organization that will be tasked with detecting, tracking and potentially destroying incoming asteroids. Are they doing this now because they have finally decided that this is a good idea, or has something gotten their attention? Of course they are not likely to publicly admit if they have come to the conclusion that a gigantic space rock is heading directly toward us. Just like the U.S. government, the … Continue reading What Do They Know? The U.S. And Russia Have Both Been Developing Plans To Deal With Incoming Asteroids

Russia the World’s Dominant Superpower

by Stephen Lendman Russia’s defense budget is a small fraction of what the US spends for militarism and warmaking. Yet Russia’s super-weapons exceed the best in the West because of efficient and effective use of its resources. Meeting with Russia’s Defense Ministry Board on Tuesday, Putin discussed Moscow’s military development and key objectives next year. Ahead of the meeting, he “visited an exhibition of advanced Russian weapons and equipment.  He was shown “the mortar (artillery) battery automation facilities set, the Adjutant complex, the Epokha unmanned combat module, the Harpoon-2M portable anti-drone system, a Russian-made buggy, the Phoenix UAV, the Piranha … Continue reading Russia the World’s Dominant Superpower

THE HIDDEN MILITARY USES OF 5G TECHNOLOGY

by Manlio Dinucci, Guest Waking Times At the London Summit, the 29 member countries of NATO agreed to “guarantee the security of our communications, including 5G”. Why is this fifth generation of mobile data transmission so important for NATO? While the earlier technologies were perfected to create ever more advanced smartphones, 5G is designed not only to improve their performance, but mainly to link digital systems which need enormous quantities of data in order to work automatically. The most important 5G applications will not be intended for civil use, but for the military domain. The possibilities offered by this new technology … Continue reading THE HIDDEN MILITARY USES OF 5G TECHNOLOGY

We see you! US Army working on “Google Earth on steroids” 3D map that can simulate the inside of buildings

by: Lance D Johnson (Natural News) If you thought Google Earth was rather revealing, then you’re about to feel naked in your own home. The U.S. military wants to take 3-D maps a step further and penetrate walls. The U.S. military is currently developing a “Google Earth on steroids” that can see inside buildings and simulate functional indoor spaces. This virtual 3D mapping system would not only provide the government with accurate 3D maps of roads, neighborhoods, and the placement of dwellings, but it would also detail the inside of buildings – giving the government eyes inside your own home. U.S. military using … Continue reading We see you! US Army working on “Google Earth on steroids” 3D map that can simulate the inside of buildings

THE SO-CALLED WAR ON TERROR HAS KILLED OVER 801,000 PEOPLE AND COST $6.4 TRILLION

by Jessica Corbett, Common Dreams Waking Times The so-called War on Terror launched by the United States government in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks has cost at least 801,000 lives and $6.4 trillion according to a pair of reports published Wednesday by the Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. “The numbers continue to accelerate, not only because many wars continue to be waged, but also because wars don’t end when soldiers come home,” said Costs of War co-director and Brown professor Catherine Lutz, who co-authored the project’s report on deaths. “These reports provide a … Continue reading THE SO-CALLED WAR ON TERROR HAS KILLED OVER 801,000 PEOPLE AND COST $6.4 TRILLION

POLL: America on the verge of civil war, and neither side is backing down

by: Vicki Batts (Natural News) Will the United States soon enter a second civil war? Polling data from Georgetown University shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe a civil war is coming down the pike — and most people aren’t actually willing to make the changes necessary to stop it. Across the board, Americans are doubling down on their political values and are refusing to compromise on the issues tearing the country apart. Government officials say that there is a substantial chance that America will enter a civil war within the next 10 or 15 years, meanwhile other experts say the war … Continue reading POLL: America on the verge of civil war, and neither side is backing down
