One of the components of airborne drone swarms is the use of micro-drones – small, sometimes insect-sized autonomous vehicles that can be deployed from larger aircraft. Rapid advances are being made in artificial intelligence that enable autonomous systems to be fully released from human control altogether – identifying, surrounding and incapacitating targets.
Last month, former CIA analyst John Nixon made headlines when he asserted that while he was interrogating Saddam Hussein after the 2003 invasion, the dictator warned him that the U.S. would fail in Iraq. Now, Nixon has revealed yet another unsettling detail: the Bush administration knew they were going to take on Iraq on “day one” — before the 9/11 terror attacks even occurred. In fact, they viewed Iraq as “unfinished business,” according to the former analyst.
As U.S. President-elect Donald Trump continues to receive domestic and international rebuke for his comments on expanding nuclear weapons, the General Assembly of the United Nations on Friday adopted a resolution that calls for negotiations to begin next year on an international treaty to completely ban the use of nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, yet predictably, the resolution was opposed by the major nuclear powers, including the United States, Britain, France and Russia.
We know a few things about what happened in Syria over the past five years. This was no popular uprising to overthrow a dictator and bring in democracy. From the moment President Obama declared “Assad must go” and approved sending in weapons, it was obvious this was a foreign-sponsored regime change operation that used foreign fighters against Syrian government forces.
The case was brought against Bush by Sundus Shaker Saleh, an Iraqi woman who charges Bush and high-ranking officials in his administration with breaking international and US law by planning and executing the invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq. Saleh maintains that Bush and his colleagues are guilty of the “crime of aggression,” which was defined as the “supreme international crime” at the 1946 Nuremberg Trials.
Though the corporate media often describe Henry Kissenger as an “internationally prestigious” political scientist and “uber-diplomat,” his penchant for death, destruction, and genocide is well-documented. Kissinger, as Secretary of State under former President Nixon, transformed US foreign policy into one of perpetual wars waged throughout the world. Kissinger oversaw a bloody coup in Chile, an illegal bombing campaign in Cambodia, and millions dead in Vietnam. His disregard for human life shows no limits as he once famously said that US “military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange stated that the emails provide definitive proof that the United States CIA is “essentially responsible for creating ISIS”.
On Sunday, the US Army Corps of Engineers denied an easement for the pipeline to cross Lake Oahe, meaning the DAPL would need to be rerouted. Shortly after that declaration, however, ETP and SXL released their own statement, making it very clear that the companies have no intention of delaying or stopping construction… A ‘victory’ might have been obtained yesterday, but the ‘fight’ is far from over.
If the Yemen files released by WikiLeaks prove anything, it is that, once again, American intervention in the Middle East has, at best, been carried out on behalf of its “allies.” At worst, it has been carried out by corrupt U.S. officials with financial ties to the Saudi Kingdom.
The leaflets were dropped by air or otherwise disseminated into a territory that is being invaded. Virtually every war since the beginning of the 20th century has produced these leaflets, which are also known as psyops or psychological operations. The intention is to use psychology and symbolism to influence members of the general population, inciting fear and, ultimately, compliance.
Army Corps Omaha District Commander Col. John Henderson claims a non-forceful eviction is necessary to protect the safety of those presently camped north of the Cannonball River, as well as law enforcement officers.
Now Anonymous has another message for the world, this time to Donald Trump, urging him to do what no other US leader has attempted in some time: create unity and peace.
The Pentagon and Congress are both promising quick fixes to the scandal surrounding excessive National Guard bonus payments to soldiers. However, the nearly 10,000 California Guard soldiers involved may be just the tip of the iceberg.
Back in unknown Atlantis times justice was administered differently. Few realise that the traditional accoutrements issued to kings or queens at coronations represent “lost” supreme objects of incredible (literally) power. The crown was an all-purpose headdress which doubled as laser weapon (more deadly than today’s most lethal nuclear warheads) and other tricks, such as technology that made the wearer invisible. The sceptre is modelled on the ancient wand, mostly either used as a healing aid or a lower power stun weapon. Royal orbs, if operable, would miraculously dial into special remote (inherent) frequencies and stream perfect, true holographic records of past events. Yes, that’s correct, you’ve read me right. Everything, every last detail of time is streamed in pristine clarity. Under those terms, justice was unavoidable. The orb would simply determine absolute truth without the need for a single corrupt witness.
In the latest report on Public Relations Spending from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the United States’ government PR apparatus has been revealed to spend over $1 billion annually — $626 million of which the Department of Defense allots to employ a massive propaganda army constituting roughly 40 percent of the more than 5,000-strong federal public relations workforce.
