Northrop Bullish on Building Navy Drone Fleet

'Northrop Grumman Corp. is pursuing a contract to build a fleet of stealthy, carrier-based drones for the US Navy while it explores commercial uses for the technology, a vice president said.

The successful landing last month of an experimental drone aboard the deck of an aircraft carrier was one of the Falls Church, Va.-based company’s many firsts in the history of unmanned aviation, according to Thomas Vice, a corporate vice president and president of Northrop’s aerospace systems unit.

“Because of our learning and our experience and investments we have made in this technology, we are very focused on competing and winning the UCLASS program,” he said during a news conference today at the National Press Club, referring to the Navy’s Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike effort to build an armed, carrier-based drone fleet.

As the US and other countries take steps to let unmanned systems fly in domestic airspace, Northrop is also considering expanding its drone business to include commercial work, from transporting cargo over long distances to mapping ice flows in the Arctic for energy companies, Vice said.

The technology “is an area where we see tremendous market growth, domestically and internationally,” he said. “It represents a significant part of our company’s revenue.”...'

Taxpayers are just cattle to fund this war mongering corporation's bottom line? Just listen to this psycho.

NATO’s Afghan draw-down stokes Kremlin’s fears of clash with US
Clara Weiss | 3 September 2013 | WSW


The US is just a pin cushion for the house of Saud. More pear shaped US, more pear shaped!

'As NATO forces prepare a draw-down of their troop levels in Afghanistan (Syria requests UN Protection from Western 'Aggression'), the Kremlin is increasingly concerned that this heralds a sharp turn by Washington and its Islamist allies towards confrontation with Moscow in Central Asia.

Currently, the US has 68,000 US troops in Afghanistan, which it will begin to withdraw in 2014. While the US intends to maintain its military presence well past the 2014 deadline—it is building at least nine permanent military bases in Afghanistan—the troop draw-down is part of a broad shift in US foreign policy. Washington is rapidly moving to war in the Middle East, in an alliance with Al Qaeda-linked terrorist forces against Russia’s ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, as preparation for conflict with Russia and China. Washington’s deepening alignment with Islamist terrorist groups, underscoring the geostrategic interests that drive its fraudulent “war on terror,” is also reflected in its Afghan policy. Together with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, it is holding stepped-up talks with the Taliban to prepare for the troop draw-down in Afghanistan (see: “Washington seeks Taliban deal as Afghanistan casualties mount”).

The Russian Vice-Defence Minister Anatoli Antonov recently stated that the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan was “too hasty.” He announced that Moscow was “striving to strengthen our contingents” in the neighbouring ex-Soviet republics of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan ahead of the pull-out. The head of Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency, Igor Sergun, described the situation in Afghanistan as “a serious challenge to international stability”. The Kremlin and the ruling oligarchies in the Central Asian republics of Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan have supported NATO’s bloody occupation of Afghanistan.

Russia also maintains close ties to the warlords of the Northern Alliance, which forms the backbone of the US-backed Karzai regime. The Kremlin granted crucial logistical support to the NATO occupation forces and has provided financial support and weapons to Karzai’s regime since 2010.

Alongside several Eastern European and Caucasian countries, Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are part of the Northern Distribution Network, which resupplies NATO forces in Afghanistan. Uzbekistan has made its air space available to NATO.

Russian aid to the NATO occupation of Afghanistan was one of the main elements of Washington’s so-called “reset” with the Kremlin, aiming to stabilize US-Russian relations after the 2008 Georgian war. Washington’s drawdown in Afghanistan and the US war in Syria have undermined the Kremlin’s reactionary deal with US imperialism in Central Asia, however, based on supporting NATO’s neo-colonial enslavement of the Afghan people.

US imperialism’s aggressive policy in Central Asia threatens what the Kremlin sees as its fundamental strategic interests. Vladimir Sharikhin, the vice-director of the Russian Institute for the CIS, told the pro-Kremlin newspaper Vzglyad: “We [Russia] have virtually no borders with the countries of Central Asia … therefore our outer boundaries are essentially the borders of the Central Asian states. In other words, we will defend these countries—we don’t really have a choice.”

Obama, Congress advance plans for deeper social spending cuts
Patrick Martin | 16 September 2013 | WSW


'With the evident postponement of an immediate war against Syria, the Obama administration and both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have turned their attention to their main enemy at home, furthering their plans to attack the social programs on which tens of millions of working people in the United States depend on for their health and livelihood.

In a half-hour interview broadcast on ABC’s “This Week” program Sunday, Obama laid out his position on the budget talks, which resumed in earnest last week in Washington. Obama indicated willingness to make concessions to Republican demands for further cuts in social spending, including an extension of the so-called “sequester,” while rejecting any negotiations over an increase in the federal debt ceiling.

There are now two budget deadlines in October. On the first day of the month, the start of the 2014 fiscal year, the federal government will run out of authority to spend money because Congress has not passed a single appropriations bill. Federal agencies will begin to shut down, with consequent furloughs and payless paydays for federal workers.

On or about October 18, according to recent estimates, the Treasury will exhaust its ability to borrow money to finance continuing federal payments, and will be limited to issuing checks based on incoming revenue. This will mean unpaid federal bills, likely before the end of the month, with the threat that Social Security checks for 50 million retired people will not go out after November 1.

As in previous budget crises under the Obama administration, the events are being stage-managed by the two corporate-controlled parties to give the illusion of partisan gridlock and confrontation over principles—in this case, whether to go forward with the implementation of the Obama health care program—while behind the scenes all factions within the ruling elite agree that massive cuts must be carried through in basic federal social programs.

With the cooperation of the media, a crisis atmosphere will be created to justify further sweeping attacks on the social rights of the working class to health care, unemployment compensation and retirement income. The end result will be significant cuts in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

US Congress moves to cut billions in food aid
Andre Damon | 21 September 2013 | WSW


'The US House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that would slash food stamp funding by nearly $40 billion over ten years, kicking four million people off the program next year. While the White House and congressional Democrats have said they will not accept the bill in its present form, its passage sets the baseline for a deal by the Democrats, who also favor significant cuts in food aid to the poorest Americans.

On Friday, the House also passed a bill that would link continued government operations to the removal of funding for the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act, setting the stage for a potential government shutdown on October 1. The aim of both parties is once again to whip up a crisis atmosphere in which to implement vast cuts to social spending over popular opposition.

The food stamp bill would cut $39 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) over ten years. It would force adults between 18 and 50 to either work or attend work training to reapply for benefits, and would also institute drug testing for recipients. The bill would also force food stamp recipients without children to work, train or volunteer for at least 20 hours per week to continue receiving assistance. This would make food stamp recipients the equivalent of indentured servants, forced to work for free in order to eat.

In addition to the four million eliminated from food stamps next year, three million more would be denied access each subsequent year, according to figures from the Congressional Budget Office.

The bill passed largely along party lines, with 217 Republicans voting for the bill, and 15 Republicans joining all Democrats in voting against it.

The Matrix: Pentagon wants ALL data to recreate 'parallel virtual Earth' for testing and conditioning human responses to psy-ops in real time
Mark Baard | 23rd June 2007 | The Register


'Perhaps your real life is so rich you don't have time for another.

Even so, the US Department of Defense (DOD) may already be creating a copy of you in an alternate reality to see how long you can go without food or water, or how you will respond to televised propaganda.

The DOD is developing a parallel to Planet Earth, with billions of individual "nodes" to reflect every man, woman, and child this side of the dividing line between reality and AR. Called the Sentient World Simulation (SWS), it will be a "synthetic mirror of the real world with automated continuous calibration with respect to current real-world information", according to a concept paper for the project.

"SWS provides an environment for testing Psychological Operations (PSYOP)," the paper reads, so that military leaders can "develop and test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners". SWS also replicates financial institutions, utilities, media outlets, and street corner shops. By applying theories of economics and human psychology, its developers believe they can predict how individuals and mobs will respond to various stressors.

Yank a country's water supply. Stage a military coup. SWS will tell you what happens next.

US shutdown targets workers and poor people
Barry Grey | 1 October 2013 | WSW


'Exuding contempt for the American people, the US Congress failed to pass a continuing resolution to fund federal operations on Monday, shutting down large sections of the government as of 12:01 AM Tuesday.

Throughout the day, the Democratic-controlled Senate rejected funding bills sent by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives that included delays in the implementation of the Obama administration’s health care overhaul, which was enacted in 2010 and is due to become fully operational next year.

The House, for its part, refused to pass a continuing resolution without such provisions. While so-called Tea Party Republicans in the House played the leading role in blocking a temporary government funding bill, hoping to capitalize on popular opposition to Obama’s reactionary health care “reform,” the White House and congressional Democrats seemed to welcome a shutdown. They calculate that popular anger will focus on the Republicans and the resulting crisis will deepen divisions within the GOP, while providing political cover for the Obama administration to escalate its attacks on social programs and expand its proposed tax windfalls for big business, in line with Republican demands.

The White House and the Democratic leadership in the Senate rejected a proposal floated Monday by Senate and House Republicans opposed to a shutdown to extend funding for government operations for a week in order to continue negotiations.

At the same time, House Democrats offered to support a funding bill that accepted the Republican spending level of $986 billion, $42 billion less than the Democrats’ proposal of $1.028 trillion. In announcing the offer, Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Democrat from Nevada) had signaled his support for this move. Although the Republican leadership refused to drop its demand for a delay in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Democratic concession prefigured the way in which the government crisis will be used to shift the entire domestic agenda further to the right, increasing cuts in such basic programs as Food Stamps, Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security.

The shutdown will have a punishing impact on millions of workers and poor people. At the same time, the government functions considered essential by the corporate-financial elite will be largely unaffected. The uniformed military, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Department of Homeland Security and the rest of the agencies involved in US imperialist aggression and subversion abroad and domestic spying and repression at home will be virtually unscathed.

The Federal Reserve will continue to pump $85 billion a month into the financial markets, inflating stock prices and underwriting corporate profits. (Notice what is important to the scum we call leaders)

But over 800,000 of the 2 million federal employees will be furloughed without pay as long as the shutdown lasts, including half of the 800,000 civilian Pentagon workers. Hundreds of thousands more federal employees will be compelled to work without pay. These are workers who have already suffered the consequences of a three-year pay freeze imposed by the Obama administration as well as weeks of unpaid furloughs resulting from the automatic “sequester” cuts proposed in 2011 by the White House, which began to take effect last March.

Personal income for federal workers across the country dropped by an average of 0.8 percent in the second quarter of this year.

The most vulnerable sections of society will be particularly hard hit. The federal Women, Infant and Children (WIC) program, which provides food for low-income women and children, will shut down. Veterans Administration disability claims will cease to be processed.

The Pentagon is turning Italy into a military base
David Vine | Oct 3, 2013 | Salon


Italy is becoming a launch pad for America's wars, thanks to your tax dollars.

'The Pentagon has spent the last two decades plowing hundreds of millions of tax dollars into military bases in Italy, turning the country into an increasingly important center for U.S. military power. Especially since the start of the Global War on Terror in 2001, the military has been shifting its European center of gravity south from Germany, where the overwhelming majority of U.S. forces in the region have been stationed since the end of World War II. In the process, the Pentagon has turned the Italian peninsula into a launching pad for future wars in Africa, the Middle East, and beyond.

At bases in Naples, Aviano, Sicily, Pisa, and Vicenza, among others, the military has spent more than $2 billion on construction alone since the end of the Cold War — and that figure doesn’t include billions more on classified construction projects and everyday operating and personnel costs. While the number of troops in Germany has fallen from 250,000 when the Soviet Union collapsed to about 50,000 today, the roughly 13,000 U.S. troops (plus 16,000 family members) stationed in Italy match the numbers at the height of the Cold War. That, in turn, means that the percentage of U.S. forces in Europe based in Italy has tripled since 1991 from around 5% to more than 15%.

Last month, I had a chance to visit the newest U.S. base in Italy, a three-month-old garrison in Vicenza, near Venice. Home to a rapid reaction intervention force, the 173rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), and the Army’s component of the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), the base extends for a mile, north to south, dwarfing everything else in the small city. In fact, at over 145 acres, the base is almost exactly the size of Washington’s National Mall or the equivalent of around 110 American football fields. The price tag for the base and related construction in a city that already hosted at least six installations: upwards of $600 million since fiscal year 2007.

There are still more bases, and so more U.S. military spending, in Germany than in any other foreign country (save, until recently, Afghanistan). Nonetheless, Italy has grown increasingly important as the Pentagon works to change the make-up of its global collection of 800 or more bases abroad, generally shifting its basing focus south and east from Europe’s center. Base expert Alexander Cooley explains: “U.S. defense officials acknowledge that Italy’s strategic positioning on the Mediterranean and near North Africa, the Italian military’s antiterrorism doctrine, as well as the country’s favorable political disposition toward U.S. forces are important factors in the Pentagon’s decision to retain” a large base and troop presence there. About the only people who have been paying attention to this build-up are the Italians in local opposition movements like those in Vicenza who are concerned that their city will become a platform for future U.S. wars.

SOCOM Wants an Iron Man Suit with Liquid Body Armor
Mike Hoffman | October 9, 2013 | Defense Tech






'Special Operation Command wants a suit its operators can wear that features liquid body armor, built-in computers and offers super human strength. Essentially, the Pentagon wants to outfit its special operators in Iron Man suits.

Officials from U.S. Special Operation Command issued a formal request to researchers to help them build this suit the military is calling the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS). The request comes right from the top — Adm. William McRaven, USSOCOM commander.

Some of America’s top scientists from labs such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology are pitching in on the project. MIT engineers are working on a liquid body armor made of magnetorheological fluids that “transform from liquid to solid in milliseconds when a magnetic field or electrical current is applied,” according to an Army statement.

The Business of America Is War
William Astore | Oct 20, 2013 | Alternet


No wonder our leaders tell us not to worry our little heads about our wars -- just support those troops, go shopping, and keep waving that flag.

There is a new normal in America: our government may shut down, but our wars continue. Congress may not be able to pass a budget, but the U.S. military can still launch commando raids in Libya and Somalia, the Afghan War can still be prosecuted, Italy can be garrisoned by American troops (putting the “empire” back in Rome), Africa can be used as an imperial playground (as in the late nineteenth century “ scramble for Africa,” but with the U.S. and China doing the scrambling this time around), and the military-industrial complex can still dominate the world’s arms trade.

In the halls of Congress and the Pentagon, it’s business as usual, if your definition of “business” is the power and profits you get from constantly preparing for and prosecuting wars around the world. “War is a racket,” General Smedley Butler famously declared in 1935, and even now it’s hard to disagree with a man who had two Congressional Medals of Honor to his credit and was intimately familiar with American imperialism.

US food stamp assistance to be slashed next week
Andre Damon | 26 October 2013 | WSW


'Benefit payments from the US government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), better known as food stamps, will be slashed drastically on November 1, the first across-the-board cut in food stamp benefits in US history. The cuts will amount to $5 billion per year, and a total of $11 billion through 2016. The average household of three will receive a benefit cut of $29 a month, or $319 per year.

“The depth and breadth of the SNAP cuts that take effect in November are unprecedented,” wrote Dottie Rosenbaum and Brynne Keith-Jennings of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP). “Past cuts have affected specific states or groups, but they have not affected all participants nor been as large as these cuts.”

The CBPP noted, “The cut is equivalent to about 16 meals a month for a family of three based on the cost of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s ‘Thrifty Food Plan.’” Once the cuts go through, SNAP assistance will amount to less than $1.40 per person per meal, according to the CBPP. One in seven Americans receives food stamp assistance, up from 9 percent of the population in 2008 to nearly 15 percent in 2012. The program helps feed 48 million people, up from 26 million in 2007. The cuts are the result of the expiration of the 2009 Recovery Act’s temporary increase in food stamp assistance, which neither the Democrats nor Republicans proposed seriously proposed to prevent.

The expiration of the extension was not scheduled to take place till 2015, when SNAP benefits are slated to increase. But congressional Democrats used $14 billion that was set aside for food stamps to fund other legislation. In 2010 the Democrats promised to restore the funding before the aid extension expired.

The Democrats have largely kept silent about the slated cut to food stamp aid, and the White House has made no official mention of the benefit cuts in the past week. The media has likewise blacked out the issue, with neither the New York Times, Washington Post or Wall Street Journal carrying stories on the scheduled cut to food stamp aid during the same period.

Over 80 percent of SNAP benefits go to households with incomes below the federal poverty line, an abysmally low $19,530 annually for a family of three, and 40 percent of recipients live in deep poverty, defined as below $9,765 annually for a family of three. The share of food stamp recipients who are working has risen significantly. Nearly one third of SNAP recipients were working in 2010, up from less than 20 percent two decades before. Of those who do not work, the vast majority are disabled, elderly or under age. The number of people who receive food stamps will continue to rise through 2014, according to projections by the Congressional Budget Office.

“I’ve never seen such a persistently unstable budget in my 31 years in acquisition. We can never forget that our submarine force and our nation are counting on us to succeed,” Johnson said. In particular, if sequester continues and if there are more continuing resolutions, the Navy will have to delay ORP production by as long as two years, Navy officials said. Meanwhile, the Navy is working vigorously to lower the per ship cost of the ORP down to below $5 billion.)
