US Navy's Own Report Indicates Washington is Looking for a Pacific Fight

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 55 seconds ago
*February 27, 2017* (Ulson Gunnar - NEO) - The Pacific Ocean is large. Since World War II, weapon systems operating in this theater have required special provisions regarding extensive range, long duration performance and relative self-sufficiency during operations. From America's Gato-class submarines and PBY Catalina flying boats used to fight the Japanese and reassert American hegemony across Asia-Pacific during WWII, to America's continued presence in Japan, South Korea and islands throughout the region, it is clear the lengths the US has gone through then and now to remain "en... more »

Is Newsnight doomed?

Craig at Is the BBC biased? - 14 minutes ago
According to Andrew Pierce in the *Daily Mail, *James Harding has asked for ideas for an alternative to *Newsnight*, suggesting that the show might be scrapped - or at least moved or given a different main presenter. This is hardly a surprise — the bells have been tolling for the now-dreary programme for some time. These days, many Cabinet ministers refuse invitations to appear, leading to tension between the production team and Downing Street. Getting rid of James O'Brien would be my suggestion for a good first move.

A rowdy segment of the American electorate is hell-bent on banning a specific group of immigrants from entering the United States.

Soon a series of U.S. Supreme Court rulings could grant unrestrained power to congress and the president over immigration control. More than 50 million people could be deported.

Curse of Oak Island - This Blog's Season Final (I hope)

Back more years than I care to think about, while I was still on active duty in the Army, I bought a book, *This Baffling World* by John Godwin. It contained information on thirteen mysteries from about the world. I bought the book because of the segment on UFOs, but other segments were about Bermuda Triangle, the abominable snowman (Big Foot in the world today) and, importantly here, Oak Island. This was my introduction to the treasure and it was the source of my interest. Oh, for those of you keeping score at home, the book was published in 1968.

Good grief! Even Dan Hodges is having a pop at *The Andrew Marr Show* this morning: Here are some of the answers he's received so far: - "I'm calling for..." said 4 times in a 2 minute slot, tells you all. She should not be discussing the papers, BBC. - Very easily. The BBC. Always available to self-publicists wishing to overturn democratic ballots. This is what we do. - Anyone might suspect that the BBC has an agenda. - To be fair, paper review segments often do this. I agree it's bad practice. - I think you find it's called "bias" You weren't expecting im... more »

Andrew Marr's introduction this morning ran as follows: After the storm - the calm and the clearing up. Not so much Doris, but those by-elections which have battered and scattered some recent accepted truths about British politics. This week, we're going to be rootling through the debris. Can Labour keep calm and carry on? Shami Chakrabati, one of Jeremy Corbyn's key allies, is with us. But the party that looks in deeper trouble this weekend isn't Labour, it's the would-be insurgents. Has UKIP run out of puff? I'll be asking its deputy leader Peter Whittle. Finally, what of the T... more »

Soon after the feature on the growth of sanctuary churches under Trump, Radio 4's *Sunday *moved onto this: Again, here's someone on Twitter with an instant reaction: That guy, Dr Mandaville, made the familiar complaint that: Muslim communities in the United States and and Britain are perceived by both the the publics in their respective societies as well as the government in both countries primarily as communities that are to be thought about and engaged with of are in reference almost exclusively to issues relating to security and terrorism rather than - as both of them actual... more »

Petra is breathtaking. It is unique, certainly in my experience, but likely in all the world.
