THE ISRAEL LOBBY AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
By John J . Mearsheimer And Stephen M. Walt
PREFACE
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.
—Bertrand Russell

In the fall of 2002, the Atlantic Monthly invited us to write a feature article on the Israel lobby and its effects on U.S. foreign policy. We accepted the commission with some reservations, because we knew this was a controversial subject and that any article that scrutinized the lobby, U.S. support for Israel, or Israeli policy itself was likely to provoke a harsh reaction. Nonetheless, we felt this was an issue that could no longer be ignored, especially in light of the September 11 terrorist attacks and the looming war with Iraq. If U.S. support for Israel was a significant source of anti-Americanism in the Middle East and a source of tension with key strategic allies, and if pro Israel groups and individuals were a major influence on U.S. foreign policy in this vital region, then it was important to raise the issue openly and encourage public discussion of the lobby's actions and impact.

We worked on the article off and on over the next two years, in close collaboration with the Atlantic?, editors, and we sent them a manuscript conforming to our prior agreements and incorporating virtually all of their suggestions in January 2005. A few weeks later, to our surprise, the editor informed us that the Atlantic had decided not to run the piece and that he was not interested in our attempting to revise it.

INTRODUCTION
America is about to enter a presidential election year. Although the outcome is of course impossible to predict at this stage, certain features of the campaign are easy to foresee. The candidates will inevitably differ on various domestic issues—health care, abortion, gay marriage, taxes, education, immigration—and spirited debates are certain to erupt on a host of foreign policy questions as well. What course of action should the United States pursue in Iraq? What is the best response to the crisis in Darfur, Iran's nuclear ambitions, Russia's hostility to NATO, and China's rising power? How should the United States address global warming, combat terrorism, and reverse the erosion of its international image? On these and many other issues, we can confidently expect lively disagreements among the various candidates.

Yet on one subject, we can be equally confident that the candidates will speak with one voice. In 2008, as in previous election years, serious candidates for the highest office in the land will go to considerable lengths to express their deep personal commitment to one foreign country—Israel—as well as their determination to maintain unyielding U.S. support for the Jewish state. Each candidate will emphasize that he or she fully appreciates the multitude of threats facing Israel and make it clear that, if elected, the United States will remain firmly committed to defending Israel's interests under any and all circumstances. None of the candidates is likely to criticize Israel in any significant way or suggest that the United States ought to pursue a more even handed policy in the region. Any who do will probably fall by the wayside.

This observation is hardly a bold prediction, because presidential aspirants were already proclaiming their support for Israel in early 2007. The process began in January, when four potential candidates spoke to Israel's annual Herzliya Conference on security issues. As Joshua Mitnick reported in Jewish Week, they were "seemingly competing to see who can be most strident in defense of the Jewish State." Appearing via satellite link, John Edwards, the Democratic party's 2004 vice presidential candidate, told his Israeli listeners that "your future is our future" and said that the bond between the United States and Israel "will never be broken." Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney spoke of being "in a country I love with people I love" and, aware of Israel's deep concern about a possible nuclear Iran, proclaimed that "it is time for the world to speak three truths: (1) Iran must be stopped; (2) Iran can be stopped; (3) Iran will be stopped!" Senator John McCain (R-AZ) declared that "when it comes to the defense of Israel, we simply cannot compromise," while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) told the audience that "Israel is facing the greatest danger for [sic] its survival since the 1967 victory." 1

Shortly thereafter, in early February, Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) spoke in New York before the local chapter of the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), where she said that in this "moment of great difficulty for Israel and great peril for Israel . . . what is vital is that we stand by our friend and our ally and we stand by our own values. Israel is a beacon of what's right in a neighborhood overshadowed by the wrongs of radicalism, extremism, despotism and terrorism." 2
One of her rivals for the Democratic nomination, Senator Barack Obama (D-IL), spoke a month later before an AIPAC audience in Chicago. Obama, who has expressed some sympathy for the Palestinians' plight in the past and made a brief reference to Palestinian "suffering" at a campaign appearance in March 2007, was unequivocal in his praise for Israel and made it manifestly clear that he would do nothing to change the U.S.-Israeli relationship. 3 Other presidential hopefuls, including Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) and New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, have expressed pro-Israel sentiments with equal or greater ardor.4

What explains this behavior? Why is there so little disagreement among these presidential hopefuls regarding Israel, when there are profound disagreements among them on almost every other important issue facing the United States and when it is apparent that America's Middle East policy has gone badly awry? Why does Israel get a free pass from presidential candidates, when its own citizens are often deeply critical of its present policies and when these same presidential candidates are all too willing to criticize many of the things that other countries do? Why does Israel, and no other country in the world, receive such consistent deference from America's leading politicians?

Some might say that it is because Israel is a vital strategic asset for the United States. Indeed, it is said to be an indispensable partner in the "war on terror." Others will answer that there is a powerful moral case for providing Israel with unqualified support, because it is the only country in the region that "shares our values." But neither of these arguments stands up to fair-minded scrutiny. Washington's close relationship with Jerusalem makes it harder, not easier, to defeat the terrorists who are now targeting the United States, and it simultaneously undermines America's standing with important allies around the world. Now that the Cold War is over, Israel has become a strategic liability for the United States. Yet no aspiring politician is going to say so in public, or even raise the possibility.

There is also no compelling moral rationale for America's uncritical and uncompromising relationship with Israel. There is a strong moral case for Israel's existence and there are good reasons for the United States to be committed to helping Israel if its survival is in jeopardy. But given Israel's brutal treatment of the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, moral considerations might suggest that the United States pursue a more evenhanded policy toward the two sides, and maybe even lean toward the Palestinians. Yet we are unlikely to hear that sentiment expressed by anyone who wants to be president, or anyone who would like to occupy a position in Congress.

The real reason why American politicians are so deferential is the political power of the Israel lobby. The lobby is a loose coalition of individuals and organizations that actively works to move U.S. foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction. As we will describe in detail, it is not a single, unified movement with a central leadership, and it is certainly not a cabal or conspiracy that "controls" U.S. foreign policy. It is simply a powerful interest group, made up of both Jews and gentiles, whose acknowledged purpose is to press Israel's case within the United States and influence American foreign policy in ways that its members believe will benefit the Jewish state. The various groups that make up the lobby do not agree on every issue, although they share the desire to promote a special relationship between the United States and Israel. Like the efforts of other ethnic lobbies and interest groups, the activities of the Israel lobby's various elements are legitimate forms of democratic political participation, and they are for the most part consistent with America's long tradition of interest group activity.

Because the Israel lobby has gradually become one of the most powerful interest groups in the United States, candidates for high office pay close attention to its wishes. The individuals and groups in the United States that make up the lobby care deeply about Israel, and they do not want American politicians to criticize it, even when criticism might be warranted and might even be in Israel's own interest. Instead, these groups want U.S. leaders to treat Israel as if it were the fifty-first state. Democrats and Republicans alike fear the lobby's clout. They all know that any politician who challenges its policies stands little chance of becoming president.

THE LOBBY AND U.S. MIDDLE EAST POLICY
The lobby's political power is important not because it affects what presidential candidates say during a campaign, but because it has a significant influence on American foreign policy, especially in the Middle East. America's actions in that volatile region have enormous consequences for people all around the world, especially the people who live there. Just consider how the Bush administration's misbegotten war in Iraq has affected the long suffering people of that shattered country: tens of thousands dead, hundreds of thousands forced to flee their homes, and a vicious sectarian war taking place with no end in sight. The war has also been a strategic disaster for the United States and has alarmed and endangered U.S. allies both inside and outside the region. One could hardly imagine a more vivid or tragic demonstration of the impact the United States can have—for good or ill— when it unleashes the power at its disposal.

In the recent study "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy", the authors of the paper, Professor Stephen Walt of Harvard University and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, charge that the United States has willingly set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of Israel. In addition the study accuses the pro-Israeli lobby, particularly AIPAC of manipulating the U.S. media, policing academia and silencing critics of Israel by labeling them as anti-Semitic.
A new article in the New York Review of Books examines the controversial report and the reaction to it. It's called "The Storm Over the Israel Lobby." It was written by media critic Michael Massing, who joins Amy Goodman for the interview. Michael is a contributing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review and frequently writes for the New York Review of Books.

1. Introduction
Most people know about, but few are willing to condemn, the strict taboo in the media, of criticizing Jews as a group, using that term. One cannot even criticize a small subsection of Jews, a miniscule percentage of the Jewish population, even when they richly deserve it.
Obviously, this is a ridiculous way to run a publication whose object is to get to the truth, so I am writing this to explain why, from now on, the pages of Russia Insider will be open to articles which fairly and honestly address the influence of Jewish elites, including pointing out when it is malevolent, which it often is, and try to understand it and explain it, with malice towards none.
I have become convinced that unless we break this taboo, nothing will improve in the human catastrophe unfolding in geopolitics. Millions have died over the past 30 years, and if we want it to stop that trend and avoid a cataclysm which seems to be approaching inexorably, we have to have the freedom to criticize those responsible. It is very clear to me, as it is to many others, that much of the guilt for this comes from Jewish pressure groups, particularly in the media.

British Government Runs Secret Anti-Russian Smear Campaigns
.
Moon of Alabama November 24, 2018

In 2015 the government of Britain launched a secret operation to insert anti-Russia propaganda into the western media stream.
We have already seen many consequences of this and similar programs which are designed to smear anyone who does not follow the anti-Russian government lines. The 'Russian collusion' smear campaign against Donald Trump based on the Steele dossier was also a largely British operation but seems to be part of a different project.
The 'Integrity Initiative' builds 'cluster' or contact groups of trusted journalists, military personal, academics and lobbyists within foreign countries. These people get alerts via social media to take action when the British center perceives a need.
On June 7 it took the the Spanish cluster only a few hours to derail the appointment of Perto Banos as the Director of the National Security Department in Spain. The cluster determined that he had a too positive view of Russia and launched a coordinated social media smear campaign (pdf) against him.
The Initiative and its operations were unveiled when someone liberated some of its documents, including its budget applications to the British Foreign Office, and posted them under the 'Anonymous' label at cyberguerrilla.org.
The Initiative is nominally run under the (government financed) non-government-organisation The Institute For Statecraft. Its internal handbook (pdf) describes its purpose:
The Integrity Initiative was set up in autumn 2015 by The Institute for Statecraft in cooperation with the Free University of Brussels (VUB) to bring to the attention of politicians, policy-makers, opinion leaders and other interested parties the threat posed by Russia to democratic institutions in the United Kingdom, across Europe and North America.
It lists Bellingcat and the Atlantic Council as "partner organisations" and promises that:
Cluster members will be sent to educational sessions abroad to improve the technical competence of the cluster to deal with disinformation and strengthen bonds in the cluster community. [...] (Events with DFR Digital Sherlocks, Bellingcat, EuVsDisinfo, Buzzfeed, Irex, Detector Media, Stopfake, LT MOD Stratcom – add more names and propose cluster participants as you desire).
The Initiatives Orwellian slogan is 'Defending Democracy Against Disinformation'. It covers European countries, the UK, the U.S. and Canada and seems to want to expand to the Middle East.
On its About page it claims:
We are not a government body but we do work with government departments and agencies who share our aims.
The now published budget plans show that more than 95% of the Initiative's funding is coming directly from the British government, NATO and the U.S. State Department. All the 'contact persons' for creating 'clusters' in foreign countries are British embassy officers. It amounts to a foreign influence campaign by the British government that hides behind a 'civil society' pseudo-NGO.
The organization is led by one Chris N. Donnelly who receives (pdf) £8,100 per month for creating the smear campaign network.
From its 2017/18 budget application (pdf) we learn how the Initiative works:
To counter Russian disinformation and malign influence in Europe by: expanding the knowledge base; harnessing existing expertise, and; establishing a network of networks of experts, opinion formers and policy makers, to educate national audiences in the threat and to help build national capacities to counter it.

EU Army: Fact or Fiction?
.
The Duran November 17, 2018
By Alex Christoforou
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and International Affairs and Security Analyst via Moscow, Mark Sleboda discuss the possibility, and feasibility, of putting together an EU army, as French President Macron is now boasting about.
Will an EU Army replace, rival, or fold into NATO? How will the US respond to Europe’s military initiative, and how will Russia deal an EU army?
Via The Strategic Culture Foundation:
“Insulting” – that’s how US President Donald Trump sharply reacted to the idea of a “real European army” proposed by French President Emmanuel Macron.
And it was how Macron rationalized the need for an independent military force for Europe that perhaps most irked the American leader.
Speaking on a tour of World War I battlefields in northern France last week, Macron said that Europe needed to defend itself from “China, Russia and even the United States of America”.
It was a pretty extraordinary choice of words by the French leader. To frame the US among an array of perceived foreign enemy powers was a devastating blow to the concept of a much-vaunted transatlantic alliance.
Since the Second World War, ending 1945, the concept of an American-European alliance has been the bedrock of a supposed inviolable, mutual defense pact. That nearly seven-decade alliance is now being questioned more than ever.
Macron’s call for a European army was further backed up by German Chancellor Angela Merkel who also pointedly said this week that Europe can no longer rely on the US for its defense.

Auschwitz: 60 Year Anniversary– the Role of IG Farben-Bayer

Auschwitz: 60 Year Anniversary– the Role of IG Farben-Bayer
Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2005
Today marks the 60th anniversary of the Soviet liberation of the Nazi death camp, Auschwitz. Elderly Holocaust survivors, former soldiers and world leaders have gathered in Poland to mark the 60th anniversary: “I would like to say to all the people on the Earth: This should never be repeated, ever,” said Maj. Anatoly Shapiro, 92, who led the first Soviet troops to enter Auschwitz.
Several books shed light on the co-dependence of the military industrial complex that enabled the Third Reich to execute the Holocaust. I.G. Farben — Hell’s Cartel — was THE pivotal company without whom Hitler could not have implemented his industrialized “scientific” Holocaust.
IG Farben Cartel
IG Farben Cartel was the most powerful German corporate cartel in the first half of the 20th century and the single largest profiteer from the Second World War.
About Bayer´s Nazi-past

http://ahrp.org/auschwitz60-year-anniversary-the-role-of-ig-farben-bayer/
For the IG Farben-Bayer connection, bearing in mind Auschwitz was a uranium refinery according to actual and circumstantial evidence. It would be nice if someone would burst the 6 mil bubble.
Mr Putin, Russia allegedly got the centrifuges. The US regime got the metal, weaponised it and delivered it to its originally intended beneficiary, Japan.
Looking at Auschwitz asquint, perhaps the "death by fire" was death by radiation.
1,000s visit the camp each year. Has anyone run a geiger counter over the ground to make sure it's safe?

May’s shabby deals bring politics even lower
Rachel Sylvester
The Times November 26 2018

PM’s call for reconciliation rings hollow while her whips are cajoling and bribing MPs to vote for the withdrawal plan
Sometimes in politics reality is stranger than satire. My most Thick of It moment came a few years ago during an encounter with John Hayes — sorry, make that Sir John Hayes. The Eurosceptic former minister, who was recently awarded a knighthood by Theresa May, had agreed to be interviewed by Alice Thomson and me about his new role advising David Cameron. We arrived at the Cabinet Office on time and gave our names to the receptionist. Ten minutes passed, then twenty. After half an hour we were told that the MP was feeling unwell so there would be a short delay just as Mr Hayes (as he then was) wandered past looking as fit as a fiddle.

May at odds with Trump on US trade

On Mr Bausman's observations
.
Israeli regime banditry.
Seems a lot of us are awake and aware of the luciferian zionist regime's barbarism (in accord with its khazarian decendance) despite the kid gloves handling of all things israeli by MsM, especially by the zio controlled media such as the BBC. One can hardly go to any alternative news site without coming across a critiscism or at least some observation of the israeli criminal behaviour.

The self-styled "jews" indulge themselves in such as using palestinians, kids and adults alike for target practice, the sinking of palestinian fishing vessels in palestinian waters, demolition of homes, burning of olive trees, land theft (legalised by the Knesset) and oil reserves theft, alleged use of nukes in Syria, constant violation of syrian airspace, acts of war against Syria, stockpiling of nuclear bombs without oversight by international agencies, not to mention involvement in terrorist activities from 9-11 through attacks on emabassies, support of terrorists and terrorism and assasinations beyond its undeclared borders, spying on and tech theft especially from the US and interference in national politics of other countries to name but a few of the crimes this abomination of a country immerses itself in.

IMO Syria should be allowed to act the way the israeli regime does, permitted to pursue terrorists that are allowed to cross into Israel and provided safe haven by the israelies, and perform bombing of air fields and munition stores to prevent israeli acts of war against Syria.
Ditto Turkey, except for the bombing.
In a fair world, and my fantasies.

Scientists now want to chemtrail the entire planet, creating smog to block out the sun
.

Natural News
Yes, the total insanity of the climate change mad scientists has now become apparent to everyone who isn't a zombie. In the name of "saving the planet," scientists now want to chemtrail the atmosphere with smog chemicals to block out the sun and, they claim, stop the "warming."
Of course, they fail to mention the global crop failures, vitamin D deficiencies and ecological collapse that would soon follow. But since when were the climate change science quacks ever interested in real science, anyway?
For the last decade, they've ridiculed the idea of chemtrails... now, they want to use them in the name of "science." Hilarious.

“Global dimming” scheme unveiled: Scientists want to chemtrail the atmosphere with SMOG in the name of “saving the planet”
Wednesday, November 28, 2018 by: Ethan Huff

Many of us here at Natural News never thought this day would come: The day when the mainstream media finally decided to tell the truth about the existence of “chemtrails,” But while it’s now open knowledge that chemtrails are real, the public still isn’t being told the truth about their actual purpose.
Intentionally blocking out the sun with chemical aerosols, we’re now being told, could be a critical tool for stopping global warming (or climate change, or whatever they’re calling this hysterical conspiracy theory these days). Except there’s just one problem: people, animal, and plants need the sun, which anyone who took elementary school science well knows.

Part of how plants grow and thrive is through photosynthesis, one of the primary components of which is unobstructed natural sunlight. Humans also require natural exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, which trigger the production of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, the pro-hormone more popularly known as vitamin D, in people’s bodies.

Believe it or not, researchers from two of the most esteemed universities in the world, Harvard University and Yale University, don’t seem to understand any of this. That, or they willfully refuse to acknowledge these realities, in turn promoting the globalist effort to massively reduce the world’s population by depriving people of natural sunlight.

As revealed by RT, the “scientists” behind this “global dimming” agenda do admit that it comes with “highly uncertain” outcomes, including the high possibility (read: certain probability) that blocking out the sun’s rays will lead to an infinitely more catastrophic situation for our world than anything that could ever be inflicted by man-made climate change.

“… there are no guarantees that it will not actually make things worse in a catastrophic sort of way,” reports RT. “There is a suspicious lack of information about what ‘dimming the sun’ could possibly do to those of us who rely on it for basic things – like growing food, or not freezing to death.”

“Geoengineering” now being openly discussed by the very same people who said it was a “conspiracy theory”

Keep in mind that just a few short years ago, these same “scientists” and “news” outlets that are now widely reporting on the supposed need for geoengineering in order to “cool” the planet rabidly denied that such a concept even existed. Anyone who dared to even speak of “chemtrails” or “geoengineering” was dubbed a “lunatic” conspiracy theorist – even though chemtrails have been visible in our skies for more than a decade.

Do these funny farm candidates or their Pinnochio legitimisers have the foggiest idea of the consequences such as polar melt, changed winds, climate displacements? Nope. The chem trailing to date has been about salting the ground with aluminium. Try to find chem trails over the oceans. The reason behind this is megolomaniacal power lust and profit, maybe population control too***. Salting the ground avoids crops thriving, except for Monsanto developed GM crops. "Control the food supply, control the people". And the price.
***Interestingly, Monsanto glyphosphate aids the passage of aluminium past the blood-brain barrier.

A brief history of "Chemtrails"
.
Delivery of toxins via jet fuel in conventional jets and specially adapted aircraft that cause atmospheric vapour to condense and eventually convey the chemicals and maybe bugs and nanobots to the surface began in the '60s. Thousands if not 10s of thousands of tons of nano aluminium have been released into the atmosphere. At nano size aluminium is a neurotoxin that causes brain damage. Linked to Alzheimer's (mad cow disease) and other symptoms of brain damage, aluminium is also linked to other organ damage and breast cancer.
The latest influenza mutation likely earned pharms industry scientists a mega bonus. It's not too difficult to understand why they don't release the cure before releasing the bug to those that know the globalists' objectives. Sell ineffective and harmful vaccines to complicit regimes for massive profits and shorten life expectantcy of the global population.

A brief history of "Chemtrails"
Contrail Science May 11, 2007
Mick West
“Chemtrails” are supposedly long lasting contrails that are being deliberately created by the government for some sinister purpose. In reality, these contrails just look like normal contrails. It’s a fringe conspiracy theory that spread over the internet, mutating as it goes for survivability. But where did it begin? What is the origin of the word “chemtrail”, and who started this particular conspiracy theory?
The folowing link takes you to an archived copy of a conspiracy theory web page from 2000:
http://web.archive.org/web/20000817011330/azwest.net/user/slim/
On it is a link to a file entitled “GENOCIDE.TXT” containing emails from 1997, the first part of which originally came from the BIOWAR-L mailing list dated 9/18/97.
http://web.archive.org/web/20000818173333/azwest.net/user/slim/GENOCIDE.TXT
(9/18/97)
[…]
The lines filling our skies are not contrails. The lines are dispersed and may linger for hours
[…]
We now have proof that our goverment is using chemical agents on populated areas they are adding it to military jet fuel. Have you ever looked up at a vapor trail behind military aircraft flying so high a symbol of Americas power. Look again!!
Commerical jets also leave a lovely (non-toxic) vapor trail when the heat from the turbines come in contact with the cool air condencing the water droplets into steam. Softly the lines defuse into the blue sky. So what is different about the military aircraft, the answer is simple, It’s the Fuel JP-8+100 is some really bad stuff.
When you look up over the skys of New York City on a clear, sunny morning you see the military aircraft making patterens across the sky with their vapor trails. The smoke is thick and does not go away. When it comes in contact with the sunlight it turns to a purple color, then desipates into a over cast Purple Haze.
[…]
this whole thing stinks of a Goverment DePopulation Program.
Here you have the key elements of the chemtrail theory, that there are two types of contrail, one that goes away, and one that does not. Further more the one that does not will make you sick.
The earliest dated actual article I could find on this theory was from January 8, 1999, by William Thomas, which recounts the suspicious of three people about contrails, dating them to well before 1999
http://web.archive.org/web/19990503013500/ens.lycos.com/ens/jan99/1999L-01-08-05.html
Wallace has been watching formations of high-flying jets weave grid-like contrails above his home since last summer [summer 1998]. Each time, “We get a taste in our mouth,” he reports. He and his wife Ann get “kind of tired and sick,” having “no energy to do anything.”
[…]

[…]
Wallace and his wife are not alone in their plight. In March, 1996, Dr. Greg Hanford bought an expensive camera and binoculars to keep an eye on jets spraying white bands above his Bakersfield, California home. Hanford has counted 40 or 60 jets on some “spray days.”

European defence force would be 'out of its depth' if deployed on numerous fronts,
Jack Hardy
29 November 2018
A combined European defence force would be “out of its depth” if required to act on several fronts, a report laying bare the continent's military frailties has found.
Researchers attempted to pitch the EU’s military ambitions against the actual capabilities of its members by creating a range of scenarios to which they may have to respond.
These included peace enforcement missions, conflict prevention, rescue and evacuation work and humanitarian assistance, in regions ranging from the Horn of Africa to the Caucasus.
It was found that, given the current equipment and resource picture, juggling several missions at once would be “beyond the reach of EU member states”.
Britain’s departure from the bloc also threatens to “make a bad situation worse”, as it could mean the loss of one of Europe’s most powerful military players, the report claimed.
Talk of a “European army” has long been a source of tension between the UK and its allies, with the EU hoping to use the Common Security and Defence Policy to ramp up joint military activity across the globe.
The International Institute for Strategic Studies and the German Council on Foreign Relations sought to establish the interventions that could be triggered by the policy, based on sources such as the EU Global Strategy.
Future of Europe: Can the EU actually protect itself against Russia?
Testing this against the known capabilities of each nation’s armed forces, the analysis found there would be shortcomings in the air, land and sea response to most scenarios.
But the report, titled Protecting Europe, added: “It is this concurrency of operations that will create real stress on capabilities, much more so than any one of the scenarios mentioned above taken by itself.
“Moreover, sustainability is a problem. While short-term operations might be possible when using all available assets, those requiring one or more rotations will overstretch European armed forces.”

‘Nice try, Earth is flat’: Conspiracy theorists can’t handle first ever 360 space video
Published time: 4 Oct, 2017
Earth image © RT
In space nobody can hear you scream, but back on Earth in the RT comment section the outcry of reality-rejecting flat earthers is loud and clear. Space exploration is a conspiracy, they say, and not even a groundbreaking spacewalk 360 will convince them otherwise.
The first-ever 360-degree footage captured during a spacewalk gives people an astronaut’s eye view of the planet from outside the International Space Station.
READ MORE: Spacewalk 360: RT releases first-ever panoramic video of man in outer space (VIDEO)
https://www.rt.com/news/405600-rt-spacewalk-360-video/
It was filmed in August by cosmonauts Sergey Ryazansky and Fedor Yurchikhin as they carried out hours of maintenance work on the low-orbit space hub.
While the breathtaking footage gives people the chance to gawk at the spherical beauty of our world, and view places such as the US and Cuba from above the surly bonds of Earth, not everyone is convinced it’s real.
A number of people, who apparently subscribe to the pre-3rd Century belief system that the world is a flat disk, have cried foul, labelling the footage ‘fake’ and the product of CGI.
Fake...notice when he throws the camera you can gauge the speed. Why’s the earth moving so fast? 😂 shit Russia Special Effects
— William H. Clark III (@CFoundDotOrg) October 4, 2017
“Lots of clipping in this CGI, should have spent longer on the rendering. Also you forgot to paint in the stars,” one person wrote on the RT website.
“Nice green screen. The earth is flat,” added a second commenter.

“Why fish eye lens? Is there something to hide?,” said a person writing under the pseudonym ‘Truth’.
Their question was answered with the help of ‘Tim,’ who suggested that the spacewalk was actually filmed underwater.
“You always need fish eyes if you are underwater. Which these ‘cosmonauts’ (read ‘aquanauts’) are,” they said.
In the 360 clip, the solar panels and airlock of the ISS can be seen clearly against the backdrop of deep space.
That hasn’t stopped people from surmising that the absence of alien lifeforms means the footage is not genuine.

RAILWAYS, ROMANS & HORSES BOTTOMS!

Railwaysleepers.com
Did you know that the US shuttle design was determined by the width of a Roman horse's bottom ?
- The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet 8.5 inches.
- That's an exceedingly odd number. Why was that gauge used?
- Because that's the way they built them in England, and English expatriates built the US Railroads.
- Why did the English build them like that?
- Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that's the gauge they used.
- Why did "they" use that gauge then?
- Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.
- Okay! Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing ?
- Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on some of the old, long distance roads in England, because that's the spacing of the wheel ruts.
- So who built those old rutted roads?
- Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (and England) for their legions. The roads have been used ever since.
- And the ruts in the roads?
- Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome, they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. The United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. And bureaucracies live forever. The Imperial Roman war chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the back ends of two war horses.

Now the twist to the story... When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah. The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains. The SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses' behinds. So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world's most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse's bottom ....Source unknow

I'll soon be changing my mail provider to a website I own or I may operate one from my computer once I have a decent 24-7-365 connection.

The JEU passed a law where web pages must get your permission to put programmes (cookies) on your computer. Of course the web page that is harvesting your info for google, oath etc, force you to accept them. I'm sure everyone is aware. That goes way beyond the spirit of the law. What has the JEU done? Said thanks to google or whoever for a bung?

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz Investigates Migrant Caravan: Organized, Well-Funded

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz traveled to Mexico for a firsthand look at the migrant caravan from Central America. Horowitz shares what he saw on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: Well the migrant Caravan is fake. You've been watching CNN so you know that. Look at this graphic quote, "INVASION" then the word MYTH on the screen. It's a myth, a pernicious one too. Is it actually a myth?

Well filmmaker Ami Horowitz decided to find out himself. He went to Mexico looking for this fake Caravan. He found a real Caravan and he filmed it. Here's part of what he found.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)AMI HOROWITZ, AMERICAN DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER: Despite the framing of the Caravan as being full of women and children, the reality on the ground is quite different, approximately 90 to 95 percent of the migrants being male.

The major narrative being pushed by the press has been that the migrants are leaving Honduras because they're escaping extreme violence and that their lives are under constant threat, setting up the strategy that they would be able to enter the U.S. by asking for asylum. So, I started by asking them a simple question.

Why are you coming to America?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (FOREIGN LANGUAGE).

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Well, I'm looking for a better life. Economic.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): I wish to get there and work there.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Being in Honduras there are no jobs.

HOROWITZ: There was a massive logistical effort underway akin to moving an army and is clearly costing someone millions of dollars for the transportation, food, water, medicine and services that are being provided for the members of the Caravan.

The Mexican government also seems to be sending police to escort the dozens of buses and trucks that are ferrying the migrants and supplies along the route to the next destination.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): The buses have arrived, people! Let's go! Four more buses are coming!

HOROWITZ: Ever-present among the thousands of migrants are workers of Pueblo Sin Fronteras clad in black T-shirts and colored vests. Pueblo Sin Fronteras means people without borders. They're the ones that seem to be most involved in organizing and mobilizing this Caravan.

The organization, as the name implies, is looking to create a world without borders, which seems to be one of the reasons why they organized this Caravan in the first place, to flout American sovereignty.

While it does seem as the majority of these migrants are friendly and simply trying to make a better life for themselves and their families, there's an undeniable element of the migrants who are violent and dangerous. And many of the migrants know this and some have experienced it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Yes, there may be some bad people here.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Actually, during the journey we've been victims of violence, verbally and physically.
