The US will not cease its efforts to ‘remake’ other nations, the idea it is its mission to 'save' the world is etched into its DNA

In the wake of Washington’s crushing defeat in Afghanistan, Joe Biden has declared that the era of US nation building is over. But it would be a very foolish nation that let its guard down against potential 'liberation' for long.

The United States is in a conciliatory mood, and that present change of heart should surprise nobody. Licking its multiple wounds after a 20-year brawl in the graveyard of empires, which cost Washington a mind-boggling $2 trillion, the Taliban is not only still in power, but it’s inherited a brand new army thanks to the shocking incompetence of its superpower rival.

Ann Coulter: Defund The World’s Police—The U.S. Military-Industrial Complex!

Why does the establishment think that whenever something is amiss anywhere in the world, we need to scramble jets and fly in to fix it?

There’s a girl in Sudan who can’t get treatment for a cut on her finger—but they will treat the boy! Fire up the missiles!

Naivete + hubris is a bad combination, like ignoring the label and mixing toilet drain cleaner and bleach.

Bush speechwriter and renowned cheerleader for flinging our troops around the globe to wipe out poverty, misogyny, homophobia, badness and meanness, recently penned a piece announcing that he is hopping mad at President Biden for ending the war in Afghanistan after a measly 20 years.

Biden’s promise to stop interfering in other countries is a lie. He’ll double-down on the US’s global drone assassination program

The idea that the US is weaning itself off endless wars and effecting regime changes is – sadly – not true. It will just keep doing it remotely, in continuing violation of international law.

US President Joe Biden on Tuesday night announced the end of the longest war in American history, the 20-year long occupation of Afghanistan. Praising his country’s retreat from the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ just days after a devastating bombing that left 13 US soldiers dead (and scores more Afghans, the majority of which may have been killed by US soldiers), Biden struck a defiant tone against critics.

He said that the “vital reason” why Washington invaded Afghanistan in the first place was to make sure the country can never be used again to launch an attack on the United States, referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks that took place in 2001. According to Biden, the US succeeded in its mission a decade ago and should have left sooner.

Iran Unveils New Components of Air Defence Systems Capable of Detecting Stealth Aircraft

The Islamic Republic moved toward self-sustainability in terms of defence equipment and weapons after it was banned globally from buying armaments from other countries. The country's defence industry has made several leaps since then, including in air defences, which shot down an intruding US RQ-4A drone in 2019.

Iran has announced the induction of six new domestic military projects into its armed forces. Yet, the country has only unveiled two of them to the public – a new radar and a command centre for Iranian-made air defence systems. Tehran expects these latest additions to increase the country's ability to defend its territory from attacks by stealth and low-altitude flying attack aircraft.

Iran Air Defence General Alireza Sabahi Fard praised the new pieces of equipment, developed and produced in Iran, for strengthening the country's defensive capabilities

Always Another War

Afghanistan is not exactly history quite yet as there still will be a lot final adjustments on the ground as well as the usual Vietnam-syndrome war of words that inevitably follows on yet another American-engineered foreign catastrophe. But the recriminations will go nowhere as there is certainly enough mud to stick on both major political parties that make Washington their home, and neither wants to be embarrassed to such an extent that anyone will actually demand change.

Barely Out of Afghanistan, Now America Is Supposed To Save Tigray From Ethiopia and Eritrea?

To most Americans the collapse of Afghanistan called into question Washington’s ability to manage the world. After devoting 20 years, thousands of lives, and trillions of dollars to creating a stable, democratic, and liberal Afghanistan, the entire Potemkin structure collapsed in 11 days.

Hundreds of thousands fled as the Taliban successively captured provincial capitals. Tens of thousands thronged the Kabul airport in a desperate effort to escape the newly proclaimed Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. If only a few of them had joined the security forces that were supposed to sustain their country, instead of leaving the fight to those who decided the regime was not worth defending, perhaps the outcome would have been different.

Afghanistan Collapse Reveals Beltway Media’s Loyalty to Permanent War State

In the wake of a remarkably successful Taliban offensive capped by the takeover of Kabul, the responses of corporate media provided what may have been the most dramatic demonstration ever of its fealty to the Pentagon and military leadership. The media did so by mounting a full-throated political attack on President Joe Biden’s final withdrawal from Afghanistan and a defense of the military’s desire for an indefinite presence in the country.

Biden’s failure to establish a plan for evacuating tens of thousands of Afghans seeking to the flee the new Taliban regime made him a soft target for the Beltway media’s furious assault. However, it was Biden’s refusal last Spring to keep 4,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan on an indefinite basis – flouting an aggressive Pentagon lobbying campaign – that initially triggered the rage of the military brass.

Pollak: We Heard About Khizr Khan for Years, but Biden’s the One Who Insults Gold Star Families

Several Gold Star families have expressed how furious they were with President Joe Biden at the dignified transfer of the remains of 13 service members on Sunday.

Not only did many feel his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan led to their loved ones’ deaths, but they also noted that Biden seemed aloof, and self-absorbed, repeating stories about the loss of his own son from brain cancer, or — shockingly — checking his watch, as if he could not wait for these encounters to end.

Bidens appalling treatment of families whose loved ones had just died in the service of the country — and on a mission that would not have been necessary had he managed the withdrawal competently– stands in stark contrast to how President Donald Trump comforted the families of the fallen.

Biden Cites ‘Serious Competition With China’ as a Reason to Leave Afghanistan

Defending his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan on Tuesday, President Biden said the “world is changing” and that the US is now “engaged in a serious competition with China.”

Since coming into office, President Biden has frequently framed China as an ideological competitor, and his Pentagon has identified Beijing as the top “pacing threat” facing the US military.

While the priority appears to be China, the US is also focused on confronting Russia. This reflects the 2018 National Defense Strategy, which outlined the shift away from “counterterrorism” towards so-called “great power competition” with China and Russia. Biden said the US was facing “challenges” from Russia on “multiple fronts.”

“There’s nothing China or Russia would rather have, would want more in this competition than the United States to be bogged down another decade in Afghanistan,” Biden said.

Bring All the Troops Home: Stop Policing the Globe and Put an End to Endless Wars

“Let us resolve that never again will we send the precious young blood of this country to die trying to prop up a corrupt military dictatorship abroad. This is also the time to turn away from excessive preoccupation overseas to the rebuilding of our own nation. America must be restored to a proper role in the world. But we can do that only through the recovery of confidence in ourselves…. together we will call America home to the ideals that nourished us from the beginning.”—George S. McGovern, former Senator and presidential candidate

It’s time to bring all our troops home.

Bring them home from Somalia, Iraq and Syria. Bring them home from Germany, South Korea and Japan. Bring them home from Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Oman. Bring them home from Niger, Chad and Mali. Bring them home from Turkey, the Philippines, and northern Australia.

It’s not enough to pull American troops out of Afghanistan, America’s longest, bloodiest and most expensive war to date.

House Dems Looking To Make America Weak & Defenseless

More than two dozen House Democrats demanded Congress decrease military spending following the U.S. removal of soldiers from Afghanistan.

In a message penned to House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith on Monday, 27 Democrats asked that fiscal 2022 not exceed President Joe Biden’s appeal of $715 billion for the Department of Defense.

The organization, led by Reps. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin and Barbara Lee of California, led to the imminent U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and the expanded domestic social welfare needs, claiming lawmakers should cut military spending “now more than ever” and give funding to combating poverty and climate change instead.

The Great Game in Space: China’s Evolving ASAT Weapons Programs and Their Implications for Future U.S. Strategy

If there is a great power war in this century, it will not begin with the sound of explosions on the ground and in the sky, but rather with the bursting of kinetic energy and the flashing of laser light in the silence of outer space. China is engaged in an anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons drive that has profound implications for future U.S. military strategy in the Pacific.

Military Contractor CACI Says Afghanistan Withdrawal Is Hurting Its Profits. It’s Funding a Pro-War Think Tank.

On August 12, the military contractor CACI International Inc. told its investors that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is hurting its profits. The same contractor is also funding a think tank that is concurrently arguing against the withdrawal. This case is worth examining both because it is routine, and because it highlights the venality of our ?“expert”-military contractor feedback loop, in which private companies use think tanks to rally support for wars they’ll profit from.

The contractor is notorious to those who have followed the scandal of U.S.-led torture in Iraq. CACI International was sued by three Iraqis formerly detained in Abu Ghraib prison who charge that the company’s employees are responsible for directing their torture, including sexual assault and electric shocks. (The suit was brought in 2008 and the case is still ongoing.)

Military Doctor: “The COVID Vaccine Program Has Killed More Young Active Duty People than COVID Did”

Dr. Lee Merritt completed an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency in the United States Navy and served 9 years as a Navy physician and surgeon where she also studied bioweapons before returning to Rochester, where she was the only woman to be appointed as the Louis A. Goldstein Fellow of Spinal Surgery.

Dr. Merritt has been in the private practice of Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery since 1995, has served on the Board of the Arizona Medical Association, and is past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Dr. Merritt recently addressed the American Frontline Doctors and discussed how all through 2020 there were only 20 deaths among all active duty military personnel related to COVID. However, there are now many reports of tumors and over 80 cases of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart), which has a 5-year mortality rate of around 66%, following the COVID-19 shots given to the military.

US Pens Deal for New Military Base in Micronesia in Latest Move to Keep China Out of Pacific

As the US pursues “great power competition” with China, Washington is on the hunt for new bases in the Pacific it can use to potentially get an upper hand in the fight. The latest site to be agreed upon is in the Federated States of Micronesia, a group of archipelagoes on the far side of the Philippine Sea from China.

Last month in Honolulu, Hawaii, Microensian President David Panuelo held high-level defense talks with US Navy Adm. John C. Aquilino, commander of US Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM) about “the United States’ broader defense and force posture in the Pacific,” among other topics.

“The FSM and the United States collaborated on plans for more frequent and permanent US Armed Forces presence, and have agreed to cooperate on how that presence will be built up both temporarily and permanently within the FSM, with the purpose of serving the mutual security interests of both nations,” a news release by the Micronesian government noted.

The criminal Globalists, from George Bush to Barack Obama and everyone in between (to include the current occupant in the White House), have shown the world they abandon our allies and befriend our enemies all while getting rich off our blood and endangering our security while creating the world's first Islamic Super State in Afghanistan. Additionally, they're airlifting in countless "refugees" (terrorists) to conduct more 9/11s on our soil.

AWAKE YET? Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

US Drone Attack Kills at Least 10 Afghan Civilians—Including 6 Children

By Jake Johnson

A U.S. drone strike purportedly targeting a suspected ISIS-K vehicle in a residential neighborhood of Kabul, Afghanistan killed at least 10 members of a single family—including six children—as they were getting out of their car on Sunday.

Relatives of the victims told the Washington Post that the strike—which was the second attack the U.S. carried out in Kabul over the weekend—”hit a nearby vehicle” that the Pentagon claims was an “imminent” threat.

The civilian victims of the U.S. strike were all “from a single extended family,” the Post reported.

Samim Shahyad, a 25-year-old journalism student, told the New York Times that the U.S. attack killed his father, his two brothers, four of his young cousins, his niece, and his sister’s fiancé. Shahyad added that three of the victims were girls who were just two years old or younger...

Father of Slain U.S. Marine Warns Americans: ‘Be Afraid of Our Leadership or Lack Thereof’

The father of a United States Marine, killed in Thursday’s Kabul, Afghanistan, terrorist attack, says Americans ought to “be afraid” of U.S. government leadership “or the lack thereof.”

As Breitbart News reported, the Islamic State – Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) claimed responsibility for two suicide bombings in Kabul that killed 10 U.S. Marines, one U.S. Navy medic, and another two service members, along with at least 90 others, and has left at least 150 others wounded.

U.S. Marine Jared Schmitz, 20-years-old, was one of the 13 service members killed in the attacks. His father, Mark Schmitz, said he was told FOX2 News of the tragic news early Friday morning when Marines arrived at his door.

Yes, they Died in Vain in Afghanistan

Gold Star families are dealing the tragic reality of the collapse of America’s mission in Afghanistan: their loved ones died in vain. Some 6300 Americans, military personnel and civilian contractors, were sacrificed for nothing.

The geopolitical wreck known as the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan delivered distressingly little in return for the service, sacrifice, and death of so many Americans – and others, both allied military members and Afghans. Almost overnight a government that turned out to be an international fraud, unable to call upon the loyalty of those it was supposed to serve, disappeared. This could not help but leave friends and family of the dead, as well as the wounded, many of whom continue to suffer from their service, feeling that they lost much, and perhaps everything, for nothing.

Manufacturing Justification for the NATO Takeover of Central Asia–Smashing Greater Central Asia – (Part One)

After ten years of raging warfare in Afghanistan, watching the fight slowly ooze across the invisible Durand Line into Pakistan, we have the right to wonder whether the war is any closer to ending today? It is perfectly reasonable to suspect that if we were allowed to know the truth we would understand that the American government has no plans to end the war in the near future. Trying to make sense of relentless Western news reports on the disaster of the impending American “withdrawal from Afghanistan,” even though other reports reveal that super-bases have been constructed, leaveing most observers completely bewildered about whether the Afgan war is ending or expanding. The only thing that is obvious is that there is to be no “withdrawal” from Afghanistan, at least not from the northern half of the country (SEE: Plan B In Afghanistan).

Health Care Costs For America's Veterans Are Skyrocketing: Report

A new study projects that cumulative health care costs for U.S. military veterans will reach as much as $2.5 trillion by 2050—a figure that nearly doubles previous forecasts—raising concern about whether the government will take care of its war vets in the coming decades.

According to research from Brown University’s Costs of War Project, the total costs of caring for post-9/11 war veterans will reach $2.2 trillion to $2.5 trillion from 2001 to 2050. This includes the amount already paid in medical care and benefits, as well as the projected future costs already “baked” into the system, the Aug. 18 report shows.

The study notes that federal expenditures for veteran care have doubled over the past two decades, to 4.9 percent of the U.S. budget in 2020 from 2.4 percent in 2001—even as the total number of living war vets declined to 18.5 million from 25.3 million during that time.

‘Please Go On’ with new conflicts: Washington war hawk John Bolton calls for pressure on Pakistan amid Afghanistan disaster

Ex-National Security Advisor John Bolton is eyeing up Pakistan, viewing the end of war with Afghanistan as a chance to start another, this time with its nuclear-armed neighbor – a “dramatic change” to “wake people up,” he hinted.

Invited onto the Washington Post’s ‘Please Go On’ podcast on Friday to expand on his proposed “solutions” to the “problem” of Afghan withdrawal as set out in an op-ed for the paper earlier this week, Bolton began by sneeringly dismissing the idea that the US could ever truly leave Afghanistan in the first place.

“All of Central Asia is like a big pile of pickup sticks,” he told the interviewer, “and they say, ‘Hey, we’re going to take that American stick out of Afghanistan and nothing else will happen anywhere else.’ Completely wrong, and we’re seeing the consequences of it now.”

“I think there are things that are going to happen that we can’t even foresee at the moment that aren’t going to be good,” the mustachioed warmonger continued threateningly.

With Russia & China cooperating militarily, America must deal with 'two peer opponents' for first time – US Strategic Command head

The close military cooperation between Russia and China is cause for great concern, and the authorities in Washington must seriously reconsider its current strategy of "containment" towards the two large Eurasian superpowers.

That's according to Admiral Charles Richard, the commander of United States Strategic Command, who spoke in an online forum discussion with the Hudson Institute.

According to Richard, the US has never before "faced two peer opponents" with nuclear weapons and high-technology systems, noting that China's rapid progression in nuclear, space, and cyber technologies means that Washington must think carefully about its next steps. In particular, Richard stated that China, unlike the US and Russia, is not constrained by treaties regarding its nuclear forces.

"Russia still remains the near-term pacing threat," Richard said, suggesting that Beijing would soon overtake Moscow as Washington's most capable foe.

US Reportedly Ready to Declassify Secret Space Weapon to Contain Russia, China

The US Defense Department is planning to reveal to the world the existence of a highly secret space weapon programme which was designed to contain imminent threats from China and Russia, the news outlet Breaking Defense has quoted anonymous sources as saying.

Declassification of the weapon systems, known as Space Command and Space Force, has been “championed” by General John Hyten, the vice-chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff.

According to the sources, the anti-satellite weaponry was due to be revealed at this year's National Space Symposium which is running until 26 August but plans were put on hold because of the ongoing Afghan crisis which prompted the US’ “national security apparatus” to focus on Kabul.

JOURNALIST GLENN GREENWALD: ‘MERGER BETWEEN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND THE CIA’ RESULTS IN ENDLESS WAR CHEERLEADING FROM LIBERAL MEDIA

Renegade liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald recently appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight where he explained why the fake news media desperately wants troops to be put back into Afghanistan.

He explained why he believes the media is turning on Joe Biden, who removed troops abruptly from Afghanistan with the Taliban taking over even faster than anyone could have predicted. It is because the deep state controls the fake news media, and liberals support the nation-building effort of spreading democracy abroad through bombing campaigns and occupations of foreign lands.

“They really do believe constantly in militarism and war. Their closest relationships in the media are with the CIA, are with the Pentagon, are with the national security state. They constantly cheer for war. They constantly want more war,” Greenwald said about the fake news media.

CIA Robo-Bug: Why US Never Used Its Super Micro Drone That Flew Like A Dragonfly To Track Enemies

The Cold War-era artifact was one of the specimens that the agency had put on display at its museum near Washington in 2003. Called “Insectothopter”, the robo-bug was developed in the 1970s. The device is perhaps one of the earliest examples of insect robotics.

“Developed by CIA’s Office of Research and Development in the 1970s, this micro unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was the first flight of an insect-sized vehicle (Insectothopter). It was intended to prove the concept of such miniaturized platforms for intelligence collection,” according to the CIA website.

This was a big achievement since microprocessors were a novel invention at that time. It was only in 2020 that the Central Intelligence Agency or the CIA released documents, which described in detail how this impressive micro-drone was created.

Pentagon Introduces New “Diversity Rules” Allowing “Scalp Tattoos” and Beards… What’s Next, Crossdressing?

Since its inception 75-years ago, the Air Force has always cultivated a crisp, clean, All-American look to represent America’s “best of the best” in the sky. Just like elite businesses often require a certain pristine clean aesthetic, the Air Force was famous for applying that concept as a matter of military discipline and presentation.

But recently, the Air Force decided it was time for an extreme makeover. More precisely, the Air Force announced that they are finally allowing personnel to have scalp tattoos — all in the name of diversity and inclusion, of course. After all, what better time than the present, as the situation in Afghanistan unravels towards an embarrassingly tragic conclusion?

The Air Force said Tuesday it will allow airmen to wear morale patches on certain days, put hands in their pockets, and to tattoo their scalps as part of an upcoming revision to dress and appearance standards.

Imagine this scenario from the year 2045: The U.S. and China, after years of belligerence, go to war over control of the Taiwan straits; most of the battles are fought through cyber-attacks and space-based weapons systems that had been perfected over the previous decades.

In a desperate maneuver, the U.S. activates its “rods from God”—a scheme developed in Project Thor involving telephone-pole-sized tungsten rods being dropped from orbit reaching a speed ten times the speed of sound [7,500 miles per hour] hitting with the force of nuclear weapons—and Beijing’s military command centers and other significant targets are destroyed.

New Ivy League Report Reveals Devastating Human, Financial Costs of Afghanistan War

By Brad Polumbo

The chaotic aftermath of the US military’s withdrawal from Afghanistan is making international headlines and capturing the world’s attention. Lost in this conversation is the true scope and cost of the 20-year war that is finally coming to an end. But a new Ivy League report sheds light on this reality—and sums up the truly devastating human and financial costs of the War in Afghanistan.

The Watson Institute at Brown University just released an updated accounting of the public expenditure and loss of life incurred by the conflict to date. The researchers found that up to 241,000 people have died directly as a result of the war. They note that this astounding figure doesn’t even include “deaths caused by disease, loss of access to food, water, infrastructure, and/or other indirect consequences of the war.”

The parameters of the tumultuous Afghan exodus are becoming both clearer and more muddled at the same time. Most American and Western citizens will get out on evacuation flights.

Many Afghans, if they have proof they worked with the US and European countries, will also get away.

The total numbers could reach 200,000 or more. Some 88,000, mostly Afghans, along with several thousand foreigners, have been ferried from the country since August 14.

As the clock ticks down to the August 31 deadline for US and other foreign forces to leave Afghanistan, the complications are mounting up.

FLASHBACK - Biden deferred, disqualified from Vietnam duty

Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick Cheney, and later was disqualified from service because of earlier asthma.

Officials with Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's campaign released Biden's Selective Service records at the request of the Associated Press. Less detailed records were available from a National Archives facility in Philadelphia.

According to the documents, Biden, 65, received several deferments while he was an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and later as a law student at Syracuse University. A month after undergoing a physical exam in 1968, Biden received a Selective Service classification of 1-Y, meaning he was available for service only in the event of national emergency.

FLASHBACK - A Photo Gallery of Doomed Children Who Suffered Because of America’s Profitable Wars

Referring to the Afghani refugee tragedies on the Greek Island of Lesbos and elsewhere, Ellsberg said:

“Our government is responsible for the flight of 37, 000,000 refugees worldwide because of United States-initiated wars.”

And he could have added,

“The US is also responsible for the sale of the lethal weapons that militaries and mercenary soldiers use to kill, maim and terrify innocent refugees-to-be all around the world. These weapons and militaries have destroyed families, freedoms, safety, shelter, jobs, food and water supplies, which naturally means that these innocents have to leave their destroyed homelands in search of safety, food, water and a future for them and their children.”

Mission Accomplished

It took America 15 years to airlift its whipped, arrogant ass out of Vietnam; in Afghanistan it took 20. All the young men and women our diseased, criminal “leaders” doomed to be killed, mangled, or commit suicide in or after those fake, bullshit “wars” were, in effect, shit-canned by them like rotten meat. Trillions that should have educated, inspired, and nurtured them were wasted and stolen by our rabid, raping Capitalist War Machine.

After 20 years of blustering, pious deception, colluded in by the hillbilly ninnies laughingly referred to as our government, led by four despicable Presidents—as contemptible a set of moral and spiritual monsters as could be dredged up from the foetid latrines of history—this hideous charade can be seen for what it was: a brazen scam to engorge our Death Merchants with blood money.

Biden mandates ‘effective immediately’ COVID vaccine for all US military personnel

President Joe Biden and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are mandating U.S. Food and Drug Agency (FDA) approved Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for all military personnel “immediately,” an official memo first revealed Wednesday.

“I have determined that mandatory vaccination against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is necessary to protect the Force and defend the American people,” a Pentagon memo dated August 24 said. “I therefore direct the Secretaries of the Military Departments to immediately begin full vaccination of all members of the Armed Forces under DoD authority on active duty or in the Ready Reserve, including the National Guard, who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.”

Defense contractors spent big in Afghanistan before the U.S. left and the Taliban took control

In the months leading up to the U.S. ending its 20-year war in Afghanistan and the Taliban gaining control of the country, major defense companies were awarded contracts in Afghanistan worth hundreds of millions of dollars and spent tens of millions lobbying the federal government on defense issues.

The Department of Defense issued nearly $1 billion dollars in contracts to 17 companies related to work in Afghanistan that was set to continue past the May 1 withdrawal date.

It’s unclear what will happen with some of those contracts as the U.S. evacuates operations in Afghanistan.

Texas-based defense contractor and construction firm Fluor received contracts of at least $85 million this year for work in Afghanistan. The company recently said it will “continue to do everything we can to repatriate all employees required to leave Afghanistan.” Fluor spent over $1.4 million on lobbying in the first half of 2021, around $115,000 more than the firm spent in the same period in 2020.

Concerned veterans demand transparency from VA after millions of appointments canceled

The group Concerned Veterans for America is demanding transparency from the Veterans Healthcare Administration after millions of canceled doctors' appointments, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Veterans' advocates say many of these appointments were for veterans struggling with PTSD, and advocates want to make sure they are reconnected to services as soon as possible.

Sam Rogers, with Concerned Veterans for America, said their organization has been hearing from many veterans who are complaining about long wait times to get an appointment. They are also hearing concerns about VA officials not providing referrals for veterans in a timely manner, as required by the VA Mission Act.

Singapore PM Lee backs US as ‘guarantor’ of security in Asia as Harris grilled over Afghanistan chaos

US Vice-President Kamala Harris on Monday began her two-nation tour of Asia by fielding a barrage of questions about Washington’s recent withdrawal from Afghanistan and whether its security commitments in the region can be trusted.

Speaking in Singapore alongside Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Harris demurred when asked about the withdrawal of US forces, saying instead that Washington was “singularly” focused on the evacuation of US and Afghan citizens after Taliban militants seized control of the country.

Harris landed in Singapore on Sunday and is scheduled to deliver a major foreign policy address on Tuesday before flying to Vietnam. After meetings on Monday with Lee and his key ministers, Harris emphasised the US commitment to the region, which she said would “in large part … dictate the future of our world”.

Pentagon To Mandate Covid Vaccine For All Service Members; One-Third Have Refused Jab

Hours after the Pfizer vaccine was granted full FDA approval, the Pentagon announced that it was set to require vaccinations for all service members.

Except, around one-third of US service members have refused the jab. In July, between 60% and 70% of personnel were fully vaccinated - with the Navy being the most vaccinated and the Marines being the least, according to the Washington Post.

The Bitter Fruits of Interventionism

As President Lyndon Johnson and the best and brightest of the 1960s were broken on the wheel of Vietnam, the Biden presidency may well be broken on the wheel of the Taliban’s triumph in Afghanistan.

Less than a week into the chaotic U.S. withdrawal at Hamid Karzai International Airport, a CBS poll found that Americans, while still approving of President Joe Biden’s decision to get us out of this “forever war,” were stunned by how badly botched the withdrawal was being executed.

By 75-25, Americans believe the withdrawal is going badly. And those who believe it has gone “very badly” outnumber by 9-1 those who believe it has gone “very well.”

Biden’s own approval rating has plummeted to 50%, the lowest of his presidency. Yet, the disastrous debacle at Kabul airport is by no means played out. It may yet become worse, far worse.

Soldiers Fight Back Against Military’s Upcoming Vaccine Mandate by Filing Lawsuit Against Pentagon

The Department of Defense will require all U.S. military troops to take the COVID-19 vaccine by September 15th. The Associated Press earlier reported on Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s memo.

The AP reported that “the deadline could be pushed up if the vaccine receives final FDA approval or infection rates continue to rise.”

“I will not hesitate to act sooner or recommend a different course to the President if l feel the need to do so. To defend this Nation, we need a healthy and ready force,” the Defense Secretary added.

An Armed Forces member refusing to take the vaccine is subject to punishment under the U.C.M.J., the AP’s report noted. The punishment for refusal to obey an order may escalate up to court martial.

“Some unvaccinated service members have suggested they’d get the shot once it’s required, but others are flatly opposed,” the report said.

The Crisis Of Confidence In America’s Military

Mark Perry died last weekend. The longtime reporter and TAC contributor was, as Curt Mills put it in his obituary, an American original, though perhaps that’s only because his breed of journalist has all but gone extinct. Perry cut the figure long after it went out of style: leather jacket, sharp-witted sardonicism, smokes, whiskey. Unlike so many journos who view themselves as charter members of an elite club, he never seemed to give a shit what anyone thought of him. He was reflexively suspicious of all power rather than determined to curry favor with the right power.

China Tests 2 New Types of Missile Warheads, State Media Says

The Chinese People's Liberation Army Rocket Force (PLARF) has successfully tested two new types of precision conventional missile warheads, the state-run CCTV broadcaster reported on Saturday.

Both missiles, launched in the Northwest China desert region, penetrated multi-layer "enemy defenses" hundreds of kilometers away and destroyed the enemy target.

The new missiles, the types of which were not specified, were said to have expanded China's rocket forces, increasing the capabilities of missiles with a conventional warhead.

Why The Wheels Are Coming Off

Why are the wheels coming off the American Project? Afghanistan is front and center in the news flow for obvious reasons, but since I have no expertise on that nation or America's role there, I am stipulating these are general comments from a systemic perspective.

By the American Project I mean 1) global hegemony in both hard and soft power and 2) American Exceptionalism, the belief that America is not just uniquely strong but uniquely right in terms of holding the high moral ground.

1. If you don't understand the problem, you can't possibly arrive at a solution. It's long been painfully obvious that U.S. presidents would be best served by their closest advisors being anthropologists with long in-country experience in whatever nation the U.S. is engaging.

Army didn’t prosecute NCO accused of rape. So he did it again. And again

Staff Sgt. Randall S. Hughes got off with a slap on the wrist after he raped the wife of a young soldier under his charge during a Super Bowl party in 2017.

It wasn’t the first time Hughes raped someone, according to charge sheets, and it wouldn’t be the last.

The victim, Leah Ramirez, reported the rape to Army CID the next day. It happened after a party held at Ramirez’s home near Fort Bliss, Texas. Ramirez’s husband was passed out drunk after Hughes had egged him on to continue taking shots of whiskey throughout the evening.

White House in Damage Control Mode After Biden Says US Would ‘Respond’ to Chinese Invasion of Taiwan

Chinese state media has accused the US president of “spitting” “empty, reckless words” on the Taiwan issue after he implied that Washington would defend the island if it were attacked by Beijing. The People’s Republic sees Taiwan as an integral part of its territory that’s destined to reunite with the mainland one day.

The White House entered damage control mode Thursday following an interview with President Joe Biden in which he implied that the US would not back away from a hypothetical defence of Taiwan like it had in Afghanistan against the Taliban.

“There’s a fundamental difference between – between Taiwan, South Korea, NATO [and Afghanistan],” Biden said, speaking to ABC News on Thursday. “We are in a situation where they are in – entities we’ve made agreements with based on not a civil war they’re having on that island or in South Korea, but on an agreement where they have a unity government, that, in fact, is trying to keep bad guys from doin’ bad things to them.”

If only Milley cared less about critical race theory and more about Afghanistan

Our country has undergone a radical change in the 21st century. It has not been a change for the better. We have focused more on arguing among ourselves while the “barbarians are at the gates,” so to speak. If we learn no other lesson from the Afghanistan debacle, it is that our military and intelligence agencies need to refocus their priorities. If we fail to do so, situations such as Afghanistan might become much more common.

Mark Milley, a U.S. Army general and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke yesterday about the situation in Afghanistan. During this briefing , Milley announced that “There was nothing that I, or anyone else, saw that indicated a collapse of [the Afghan] army and this government in 11 days.” Perhaps if he worried less about "white rage," he would have seen Afghanistan being overrun by the Taliban in less than two weeks. Perhaps if he worried less about "critical race theory," he would have been better prepared to do his job.

The chaos in Kabul reveals the one thing more important to the media than covering for Biden...keeping the US war machine going

As the US makes its chaotic exit from Afghanistan, we are reminded once again how truly committed members of the American press are to dying ideas of “militarism and imperialism.”

“Genuinely revealing that the only thing that could make the corporate media turn on Biden was his decision (in agreement with Trump) to end a preposterously long and worthless war,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted on Friday, after being one of many spending the week calling out the mainstream media for its rather bizarre – but sadly not surprising – coverage of the situation in Afghanistan.

Since Joe Biden took office, he’s enjoyed a rather cushy relationship with the media. It helps that his predecessor lived in their minds rent free, and Biden’s had the distraction of the Covid-19 pandemic and the tiring obsession with January 6 to keep criticism of him almost exclusively to conservative crowds.

Biden’s exit from Afghanistan, however, has given him a rather bad week all round.

US Black Hawk Helicopters Captured by Taliban as ‘Horrified’ Senators Demand DOD Audit

Likely billions of dollars of American weapons and vehicles are now in the hands of the Taliban extremist group after the collapse of the Afghan government and army, with numerous videos and photos surfacing online showing Taliban members seizing the equipment.

Photos have circulated of Taliban members holding American M-4 carbines and M-16 rifles rather than AK-47s or AKMs. Other images and videos showed the Taliban surrounding U.S. Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft.

On Wednesday, several GOP senators demanded the Department of Defense (DOD) provide full accounting over the weapons and equipment that were captured by the Taliban, considered by several agencies as a terrorist organization.

Baby Teeth Collected Six Decades Ago Will Reveal the Damage to Americans’ Health Caused by US Nuclear Weapons Tests

By Lawrence Wittner and Joseph Mangano

In 2020, Harvard University’s T. C. Chan School of Public Health began a five-year study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, that will examine the connection between early life exposure to toxic metals and later-life risk of neurological disease. A collaborator with Harvard, the Radiation and Public Health Project, will analyze the relationship of strontium-90 (a radioactive element in nuclear weapons explosions) and disease risk in later life.

The centerpiece of the study is a collection of nearly 100,000 baby teeth, gathered in the late 1950s and early 1960s by the St. Louis Committee for Nuclear Information...

Audit Exposes Cybersecurity Lapse in US Pacific Submarine Fleet

A recent internal audit of the US Navy revealed that Pacific Fleet submarines and their tenders have not received internal and external cybersecurity inspections in recent years.

The audit — conducted by the Institute for Defense Analyses and obtained by Navy Times through a Freedom of Information Act request — detailed “the specter of cyber vulnerability among some of the sea service’s most potent platforms,” exposing lapses in the cybersecurity standards of the Naval fleets.

For example, the Navy’s Fleet Cyber Command did not inspect and assess the cybersecurity of 41 SUBPAC submarines and its two sub tenders. This was a requirement from 2016 to 2018. Furthermore, the fleet command failed to submit a proper explanation as to why the units were not inspected.

New US Air Force Secretary Wants to ‘Scare’ China

Researching and developing new weapons technologies is a key part of the Pentagon’s strategy to counter China. In an interview with Defense News, President Biden’s new Air Force secretary said he’d like to see the US military field the type of new technologies that “scare China.”

Frank Kendall, who was sworn in as Air Force secretary on July 28th, made it clear in the interview that he is focused on China. “I’ve been obsessed, if you will, with China for quite a long time now — and its military modernization, what that implies for the US and for security,” he said.

Make No Mistake, the US Military Will Continue to Thrive after Afghanistan

The object in war,” argued Liddell Hart “is a better state of peace — even if only from your point of view. Hence, it is essential to conduct war with constant regard to the peace you desire.” Sound advice, but as Americans are learning, the true purpose of the mission in Afghanistan had little to do with a better state of peace and much more to do was with finding ways to extend the commitment of American funds, resources, and military power for as long as possible.

In January 1973, when the Paris Peace Agreement ending American involvement in South Vietnam was signed, Saigon and its armed forces still relied heavily on guaranteed U.S. air, artillery and logistical support. The removal of U.S. military power always guaranteed Saigon’s defeat against a determined attack from North Vietnam. The removal of economic and military support from Afghanistan today is having a similar impact, but the outcome in Afghanistan is arguably much worse. Why?

Navy Commander Warns of “National Security Threat” from Mandatory Vaccination of U.S. Military Personnel

An officer with the U.S. Navy is warning of a full-blown “national security threat” if the military moves ahead with its planned universal COVID-19 vaccination mandate, in a paper obtained exclusively by Revolver News.

In a memorandum released on Monday, Biden Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin announced his intention to require a COVID-19 vaccination for all service members by mid-September, or immediately should any COVID vaccines clear FDA approval (the vaccines are currently only authorized for emergency use). Servicemen who refuse to submit to the vaccine will potentially face court martials, prison time, and even less-than-honorable discharge from the service.

Israel’s Lawyer Speaks Up

America’s foreign policy is a funny thing, except for the fact that it is no laughing matter. Given the recent sentencing of whistleblower Daniel Hale for revealing to the media that the US military’s drone program kills innocent civilians including many children 90% of the time, one has to wonder what the “humanitarian” Joe Biden Administration is up to. Hale will presumably serve 45 months in a federal prison though the actual time in the slammer might be closer to 18 months if he behaves and submits to counseling.

Biden’s Democratic predecessor Barack Obama was equally a plague on whistleblowers while also attacking a non-threatening Libya and Syria and overthrowing an elected government in Ukraine, so one has to suspect that there must be something in the Democratic Party’s DNA that induces megalomania. Or maybe there is a hallucinogenic chemical additive in the White House’s water supply, secretly placed by those damned Russians, which produces delusions of grandeur.

US Special Forces Deploying to the Congo

The president of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has authorized the deployment of US special forces to his country to help fight the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

DRC President Felix Tshisekedi said in a statement Sunday that the US troops would “provide support to the [army] in the fight against terrorism and to the guardians of the Virunga and Garamba national parks, which have become a sanctuary for terrorist forces.”

US Ambassador to the DRC Mike Hammer said that the troops would arrive in the country’s capital Kinshasa on Friday to “conduct an assessment of a future Congolese counter-terrorism team.” It’s not clear at this point how many special operations soldiers are being deployed. Tshisekedi said the US troops will be in the country for several weeks.

The Su-35 vs. the F-35: Who Would Win in a Dogfight?

Here's What You Need To Remember: The maneuverability of the Su-35 makes it an unsurpassed dogfighter. However, future aerial clashes using the latest missiles (R-77s, Meteors, AIM-120s) could potentially take place over enormous ranges, while even short-range combat may involve all-aspect missiles like the AIM-9X and R-74 that don’t require pointing the aircraft at the target.

The Sukhoi Su-35 Flanker-E is the top Russian air-superiority fighter in service today, and represents the pinnacle of fourth-generation jet fighter design. It will remain so until Russia succeeds in bringing its fifth-generation PAK-FA stealth fighter into production.

Russia’s joint military exercise with China, the first time servicemen from both nations have participated together on operational and strategic drills, was a “complete success” and demonstrated a “high level” of cooperation.

That’s according to Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe, who spoke on Friday following a week of war games.

Others said it could happen within a month,” reports The Washington Post. “Some officials said that although they were not authorized to discuss the assessment, they see the situation in Afghanistan as more dire than it was in June, when intelligence officials assessed a fall could come as soon as six months after the withdrawal of the U.S. military.”

Why Do We Fight? Don't Ask

Derek Davison commented on the three U.S. strikes in Somalia that have taken place in the last few weeks, and noted that there is hardly anyone asking why the U.S. is engaged in hostilities in Somalia in 2021:

There’s no questioning why al-Shabab, whose current ambitions don’t extend beyond Somalia and whose reach extends no further afield than neighboring Kenya, should be regarded as a threat to the United States. There’s no questioning why the 2001 AUMF is still on the books at all some 20 years later, when everyone involved in planning and carrying out the September 11 attacks is either dead or in hiding. There’s no questioning the absurdity of claiming the right “self-defense” in reference to another country’s military in a battle in which no American personnel were at risk. All of that is just How It Is, apparently, and there’s no sense wasting our beautiful minds on the subject.

Army probes heist of 230,000 lbs ball bearings worth $2M

The U.S. Army is investigating at least one high-ranking civilian official at White Sands Missile Range and an El Paso contractor for allegedly stealing $2 million worth of nickel ball bearings — that’s a whopping 230,000 pounds of them — used in explosives research at the range, according to a recently unsealed federal search warrant.

The U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigation Command earlier this month applied for and was granted the warrant, which states investigators have probable cause to believe that Randolph Brady, a former director at White Sands, and Mario Escobedo, the owner of EGL Construction, and possibly others conspired to steal government property. A search warrant return shows federal authorities on Monday seized more than $1 million from a bank account held in the name of Escobedo’s business. No charges have been filed against either man.

If, after the horrors of this week in Afghanistan, the 4-Starry-eyed generals responsible for this 20-year March of Folly are not held accountable, there will be still worse to come. None were held accountable for the disasters of Vietnam or Iraq, and now the allegedly smart 4-Star Generals and Admirals are – get this – preparing for war with China and Russia.

"Civilian control" of the military is a fiction when the Departments of Defense and State are headed by windsock politicians like Robert Gates and Hillary Clinton, not to mention President Barack Obama who lacked the spine to stand up to political generals like David Petraeus. This was clear as a bell 12 years ago, when on March 24, 2009, Obama announced his first surge of troops into Afghanistan.
