2019, The Strategies of Global Warfare: War with China and Russia? Washington’s Military Design in the Asia-Pacific (Source globalresearch.ca) At the outset of 2019, War against China and Russia is on the drawing board of the Pentagon. The use of nuclear weapons are contemplated on a preemptive first strike basis. How do we know that? World War III scenarios have been contemplated for more than ten years. They are the object of military simulations (which are classified). Leaked to the Washington Post in 2006, see Vigilant Shield global war scenario using nuclear weapons against China, Russia, Iran, North Korea. Recent reports (2015-2018) commissioned by the Pentagon confirm the details of Washington’s military agenda against China and Russia. Reports by the Rand Corporation’s War against China project and the 2018 National Defense Strategy Commission, War against China and Russia. On March 1st, 2018 president Vladimir Putin unveiled an array of advanced military technologies in response to renewed US threats to wipe the Russian Federation off the Map, as contained in Trump’s 2018 Nuclear Posture Review. It should be understood that these US nuclear threats directed against Russia predate the Cold War. They were first formulated at the height of World War II under the Manhattan Project when the US and the Soviet Union were allies.
According to a secret document dated September 15, 1945, “the Pentagon had envisaged blowing up the Soviet Union with a coordinated nuclear attack directed against 66 major urban areas.
Far side of the moon: China’s Chang’e 4 probe makes historic touchdown (Source theguardian.com)
A Chinese spacecraft has become the first to land on the far side of the moon in a historic moment for human space exploration.
The successful touch down was hailed as a major technical feat and is seen as a important step towards China’s wider ambitions in space.
The robotic probe Chang’e 4 landed in the unexplored South Pole-Aitken basin, the biggest known impact structure in the solar system, at about 2.30am GMT on Thursday. Prior to confirmation of the landing and the release of the first close-up shots of the far lunar surface by the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV, many details of the mission, including the planned timing of the landing, had been kept secret.
The landing was described as “an impressive accomplishment” by Nasa administrator Jim Brindenstine.
Martin Wieser, a scientist at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics and principal investigator on one of the instruments onboard Chang’e, said: “We know the far side from orbital images and satellites, but we don’t know it from the surface. It’s uncharted territory and that makes it very exciting.”
African migrants told to leave or face imprisonment (Source BBC News) The Israeli government has issued a notice for thousands of African migrants to leave the country or face imprisonment. The migrants will be given up to $3,500 for leaving within the next 90 days. They will be given the option of going to their home country or third countries. If they do not leave, the Israeli authorities have threatened that they will start jailing them from April. The UN refugee agency said the controversial plan violated international and Israeli laws. The Israeli government says their return will be humane and “voluntary”. The order exempts children, women, parents of dependent minors and victims of slavery and human trafficking. A spokesperson for Israel’s Population and Immigration Authority told the BBC there were currently 38,000 “infiltrators” in Israel, of whom just 1,420 were being held in detention facilities. Israel uses the term “infiltrators” to describe people who did not enter the country through an official border crossing. Many of the migrants – who are mostly from Eritrea and Sudan – say they came to Israel to seek asylum after fleeing persecution and conflict, but the authorities regard them as economic migrants.
