Hello Neighbor
I lived on Alpine Road, right alongside the San Francisquito Creek, before the Foothill Freeway was built. Rode my bicycle to class, through the gold course, past the stable. It was quiet, peaceful, wonderful place/time. Never saw a mountain lion, but lots of wild critters.

PA,
how did you find that forum?! It is very interesting and the links within it open another "can of worms" as far as the origins of species is concerned, especially the Scythians and their connections with Celts. The tombs of ´celtic princes´ (as the one in Hochdorf near Ludwigsburg) and the tomb of the ´Ice maiden´are quite similar.

Another British degenerate: "Downplaying Nazi crimes to pursue Russophobia – neocon revisionism hits Britain" https://www.rt.com/op-edge/408368-nazi-communists-crimes-neocons-west/
"Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan claimed in a British Sunday newspaper column last weekend that while the Nazis had killed 17 million, communism had killed 100 million. ... In November 2015, he wrote an article for a Conservative website entitled ‘Why we must back Turkey against Putin,’after Turkey had shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 flying over Syria and its pilot was killed by ‘rebels’ on the ground. In September of that year, he attacked the anti-war movement for not protesting against Russia’s (legal) intervention against terrorists in Syria."
This Daniel Hannan MEP: "We need more Jews" https://www.conservativehome.com/thecolumnists/2015/07/daniel-hannan-mep-we-need-more-jews.html
How come that the ziocons/neocons have found their bosom buddies among neo-Nazis, like Nuland-Kagan and McCain found their friends in the self-proclaimed neo-Nazi Paruby and Biletski?
"The shocking truth is that Nazism is being rehabilitated at the very highest levels. In 2014, the Western elites supported an illegal ‘regime change’ operated in Ukraine in which neo-Nazis provided the cutting edge to anti-government protests. An EU and NATO member-state Latvia, Waffen SS veterans openly hold marches, and to the best of my knowledge, there’ve been no protests from ‘crusaders’ for democracy..."

J,

If I had to bet getting her to leave was the main goal of this "coup". The military developed a vision impairment: They could not see taking orders from that person.

It's hard to imagine the Great Powers giving much of a rip about Zimbabwe. The business interests aren't large. Stranger things have happened though.

The Trumpster was also a friend of Epstein's and a frequent guest at his parties or so he has claimed in the past.

dogear,

Let the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate point and point and point some more.

Still, the revelations are precious:
"Dershowitz told the American Lawyer, he is loyal to his wife, who is always by his side: "I've been married to the same woman for 28 years. She goes with me everywhere.... But according to the flight logs, Dershowitz was close enough to Epstein to have accompanied him on a flight from Palm Beach to New Jersey's Teterboro Airport as early as December 1997. On that flight, the pair was accompanied by a number of people, including one unidentified "female," a "Hazel," a "Claire," and Maxwell. The logs also show Dershowitz on a flight with Epstein from Bedford, Mass., to Teterboro in October 1998, and a flight from Teterboro to Martha's Vineyard in 1999. And a 2005 trip from Massachusetts to Montreal shows him traveling with Epstein, "Tatianna," and others.
One things the logs don't show: Dershowitz's wife traveling with him." Liar. A dirty liar. And a pedophile.

Moreover, Dershowitz "along with a dream team of attorneys that included Gerald Lefcourt, Roy Black, and Ken Starr, was successful in getting federal investigators not to charge Epstein with moving his victims across state lines and other associated crimes." Here is the name of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida during Epstein’s criminal investigation: R. Alexander Acosta.

"Saudi Arabia and Israel play the key roles in anchoring the ‘arc of reaction and terror’ in the Middle East. Both foment wars, finance terrorism and spread ethno-religious fragmentation leading to millions of refugees." - True.
The pampered prince, MbS, is allowing Israelis to toy with himself. As a result of the toying, Israel and Israel-firsters could get their wish and bring up a war with Hezbollah. This stupidity would lead to a proper bloody lesson to the supremacist boil on the Middle East.
American ziocons have become spoiled with their success in subjugating the US Congress (and Pentagon?) The ziocons, with their abnormally low moral quotient and opportunistic mode of operation, are not able to imagine the dignity and courage of those in the Middle East, who are ready to defend their patria and their millennia-old and rich culture.
We live in interesting times when the US destiny depends on the valiant and principled US brass able to confront the Deep State' moral and intellectual feebleness

Not blacked out. Just not highlighted. Type mugabe in the search on rt.com and anyone can find.

Given his age and the level of importance of Zimbabwe outside of Zimbabwe, not sure why it should be highlighted for a global audience.

General in charge of US nukes says he can defy an ‘illegal’ strike order from Trump.

"Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of the US Strategic Command (STRATCOM), said he would not blindly follow whatever order comes from US President Donald Trump, noting that the law of armed conflict that prohibits the use of disproportionate force and inflicting unnecessary suffering would be a higher authority when it comes to decision-making."

Mark,

Zimbabwe is sitting on $11B in precious minerals according to a mining expert at the University of Zimbabwe. I'd venture to say that (now this is IMO) the reason that DoD created MAJCOM AFRICOM was to get ahead of the curve regarding future conflicts in Africa that would be about control of the precious minerals, metals, and resources that Africa holds.

The problem with Africa, (and Britain knows this all too well) if one isn't really careful, Africa can quickly become quicksand that will gobble you up before you know what hit you.

James T Hyten

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_E._Hyten Harvard? The ultimate staffie. Does not appear to have any combat experience, not even an aviator if I read his bio correctly. Strategic Command exists to deter. You don't deter by saying at an international meeting that YOU would decide on operations, not the CinC. He should be removed from command. pl

Some see Trump falling victim to a Coup:

https://www.rt.com/op-edge/410176-trump-nuclear-military-coup-opponents/

Russia and China take things like this very seriously and will plan their countermeasures accordingly, like how their response to a first strike against them by Coup parties. Is this a mirror of the 1934 Business Plot that was launched against FDR revisited?

Bets are both Russia and China aren't viewing it as a 'mistake', but Treason in the works against a sitting U. S. President. They will also take safety precautionary actions accordingly.

Colonel,

If you notice, in addition to Hyten having NO combat experience, it appears he ALSO has NEVER ventured outside of the States in any of his assignments since his Officer Commission.

ex-PFC Chuck,
indeed, I live in germany and the boar was a normal domestic european wild boar, just a pretty, large, splendidly toothed male exemplar that was quite assertively telling me that I was in his forrest.

http://1b.yt/eYitM

Likely a tusk lady with a band of little tusks to protect would likely have been more assertive, and I'm happy I didn't meet such one. After all, when my old and sadly late cat had her seven kittens she attacked a shepard dog that had wandered into our garden - and that lovely and fierce cat won.

That written, I was not like my old cat. Except for hiding and running away, I could, of course, have tried to fight the tusk with my swiss pocket knife, and in that fight I would have had poor chances. Fleeing was not exactly heroical, but at least it was rather sensible.

John Minnerath

An unconscionable statement by Air Force General Hyten.
He should not only be removed from his command but forced to resign his Commission.

John Minnerath

Amen. The USAF occasionally creates hyper-nerd generals. I knew a two star in the Pentagon who used to dress up as the bunny rabbit at Easter and come to work that way. He eventually killed himself. He wasn't an aviator either and was an MIT product. pl

He could have gone to Canada or the UK at least. pl

Col, Over the years you have (I think) pointed out that officers make an oath to uphold the Constitution. If a Pres is acting in violation of the Constitution and our laws, what are members of the armed forces to do? Is there a process provided under the UCMJ? In the event of launching an attack having a less than 30 min window from command to mass destruction, is this a case of technological capability (if not complexity) overwhelming policy, habits & behaviors of a bygone circumstance? Or is this another one of those, “if you don’t like it - change the laws or amend the Constitution” cases?

Paul Mckeigue

What you are talking about is no different from refusal of any other order(s) on the basis of your judgment of its illegality. If you choose to do that and the coup against the president succeeds you are in good shape, if it does not ... We have nor faced the situation in which you are called in the night and asked which side you are on. We have always been insulated from that affliction by the tradition of political neutrality of the armed forces. That tradition has been steadily eroded over the last fifty years but still exists except for Mattis who is now a political figure as Powell was before him. As for the
khan shaykoon matter, the operational chain of command clearly and correctly reported all the way up to Mattis the extent of their prior and concurrent coordination with the Russians on the conventional air attack in the area. The US command had made no objection over this with the Russians and had a recon drone in the area to observe during the attack. DoD knew very well at the time of the attack that there had been no air chemical strike. The jihadis seized upon the occasion of that onventional attack on an arms depot to stage yet another IO chemical propaganda strike, providing themselves the media material to support their claim. DJT watches too much TV news. Based on the media coverage and projection of the image they had created and his daughter's sentimental tears which conveniently support Israeli policy, he decided on his own to ask for punitive options from DoD. Once those arrived at the WH Mattis and McMaster argued for the least extreme option and DJT ordered the attack. Should these generals have resigned rather than participate? Well, you only get to resign once. You have to pick the occasion when you wish to fall on your sword. pl

One may ask how the jihadis knew of the coming Syrian Air Force air attack at Khan Shaykoon. The possibility of a compromise to the rebels from the Syrian government side is obvious. pl

J

Hyten has given Command enough rope to hang him for Sedition and Treason, and they could turn the dogs of the UCMJ against Hyten and there wouldn't be much left of his carcass when they finished with their legal mauling. BUT that is a political, and a Command decision.

I wouldn't have wished that on my worst enemies, (the U.K. or Canada), of course Canada DOES have GOOD Moose burgers.

How Syrian-Nuke Evidence Was Faked
November 19, 2017

Exclusive: In joining Israel and the White House selling military intervention in Syria, the CIA and international inspectors hid key evidence that would undermine the case, says Gareth Porter in a second part of a two-part series.

What I found interesting in that book, among other things, was how TR late in life had second thoughts his previous aggressiveness, notably in the Philippines.
