Contractors Cite “Benefits” of Escalating Conflicts in the Middle East*

Contractors Cite “Benefits” of Escalating Conflicts in the Middle East*

Major defence contractors Raytheon, Oshkosh, and Lockheed Martin assured investors at a Credit Suisse conference in West Palm Beach this week that they stand to gain from the escalating conflicts in the Middle East.

Lockheed Martin Executive Vice President Bruce Tanner told the conference his company will see “indirect benefits” from the war in Syria, citing the Turkish military’s recent decision to shoot down a Russian warplane.

The incident, Tanner said, heightens the risk for U.S. military operations in the region, providing “an intangible lift because of the dynamics of that environment and our products in theatre.” He also stressed that the Russian intervention would highlight the need for Lockheed Martin-made F-22s and the new F-35 jets.

And for “expendable” products, such as a rockets, Tanner added that there is increased demand, including from the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia because of the war in Yemen.

Wilson Jones, the president of the defence manufacturer Oshkosh, told the conference that “with the ISIS threat growing,” there are more countries interested in buying Oshkosh-made M-ATV armoured vehicles. Speaking about a recent business trip to the Middle East, Jones said countries there “want to mechanize their infantry corps.”

Raytheon Chief Executive Tom Kennedy made similar remarks, telling the conference that he is seeing “a significant uptick” for “defence solutions across the board in multiple countries in the Middle East.” Noting that he had met with King Salman of Saudi Arabia, Kennedy said, “It’s all the turmoil they have going on, whether the turmoil’s occurring in Yemen, whether it’s with the Houthis, whether it’s occurring in Syria or Iraq, with ISIS.”

The last bit of good news for the contractors is the latest budget deal in Congress. After years of cuts following the budget sequester, the deal authorizes $607 billion in defense spending, just $5 billion down from the Pentagon’s request, which DefenseNews called a “treat” for the industry.

“Our programs are well supported [in the budget],” said Lockheed’s Tanner at the conference. “We think we did fare very well.”

Nov. 20 celebrates the life of the Afro-Brazilian resistance leader while reaffirming Brazil’s position as the first place of freedom of Blacks in the Americas.

Today is the National Day of Zumbi and Black Consciousness in Brazil. The celebration is the result of over 40 years of struggle of the renewed Brazilian Black movement.

Celebrated on the 20th of November, the holiday was established officially by Law No. 12,519 on November 10, 2011, and sanctioned by President Dilma Rousseff. This affirmed the history of Black people in Brazil, while commemorating the life of one of their most brilliant military leaders,  Zumbi dos Palmares, who died on Nov. 20, 1695.

Zumbi: Black Brazil’s Legendary History of Resistance

Zumbi dos Palmares was the leader of the independent settlement, Quilombo of Palmares – located between the states of Alagoas and Pernambuco, in northeastern Brazil, which was founded by early Brazilian Africans as a resistance to European colonizers and slavers.

The Quilombo Of Palmares can therefore be considered one of the first places, in the Americas, where Black people, who were brought to the New World enslaved, found freedom. Here they bravely fought against enslavement for almost a hundred years as the Portuguese attempted to colonize Brazil.

The Quilombo emerged in the late sixteenth century and peaked in the second half of the seventeenth century. During this time, resistance to the current slave order was only possible because of adept organizational, military and architectural skills: the Quilombo was surrounded by a high fence made of clay, and palm trees. It had three entrances protected by at least two hundred warriors, who possessed weapons and ammunition, and managed to defeat the expeditions of the colonial government several times, which sought to destroy the Republic of Palmares and the freedom it embodied.

Zumbi, born in the Quilombo in 1655, was kidnapped as a child by soldiers and given to a priest by the name of Father Antonio Melo. He was baptized with the name Francisco and taught Portuguese and Latin. In the year 1670, at only fifteen years old, he resisted the white settlers who he lived among, fleeing from the parish to return to his original home in the Quilombo.

Watch: Clips from the movie 1984 movie Quilombo featuring Afro-Brazilian actress Zezé Motta and the music of the iconic musician Gilberto Gil.

After the death of the powerful leader Ganga Zumba, Zumbi became the absolute leader and military strategist in the fight against slavery. It was said that he held great spiritual power and that African ancestors of Brazilians protected him.

He defied several European settler military expeditions, ultimately prompting the king of Portugal at the time to write Zumbi a letter urging him to agree to surrender and live under the Portuguese laws. But Zumbi was no assimilationist. Refusing to accept life under the yoke of the Portuguese crown, and wanting full freedom for his people to the end Zumbi was killed in battle on November 20, 1695, after resisting, and fighting military expeditions.

An Awakening of Consciousness

For the African-Brazilian, November 20th is now celebrates the life of a hero who died fighting for freedom. It is a radical action that affirms the history of Black struggle against colonialism with its own national holiday and is a symbol of progress for Brazil.

On the National Day of Zumbi and Black Consciousness and throughout November marches take place throughout Brazil, though depending on the region, the actual activities of the day may differ. Recently the common theme of the marches is about stopping the genocide against Black youth and empowerment for Black Women.

Earlier this month, on Nov. 7 was the March of Natural Hair Empowerment in the city of Salvador, Bahia. The march gathered a large crowd, mostly women, whose aim was to promote the affirmation of the Black beauty, especially kinky, and curly hair which is a political and cultural expression of ancestry. However, in Brazil this expression hasn’t always been accepted. Historically it has been stifled through the use of chemical straighteners and straightening combs. But, this march was a space for Afro-Brazilians to come together and affirm each other’s beauty in the fight against racism in Brazil.

On November 18th there was the National March of Black Women in Brasilia. 20,000 women of all states and regions of the country marched for freedom, a fair and democratic country and a stronger sense of safety as some reports say that almost every two hours a Black Woman in Brazil dies from causes other than natural death.

Now, during the month of November, especially after the implementation of the law 10,639 in 2003, which made the teaching of history and African and Afro-Brazilian culture in elementary schools and high school compulsory, many events related to appreciating Blackness happen.

But the big problem is that this only occurs during that small space of time, and during the other time of the year, black  history and  culture are neglected, made invisible in a country that, despite their diversity, presents white as the universal standard.

However, the 20th of November signifies a victory for a generation of intellectuals in the Black movement who competed in the historical memory and won. They challenged the official historiography of slavery told by descendants of Europeans (a paternalistic story of white princess who freed the slaves by a simple decree) and erected a Black hero to represent the historic fight of more than half of Brazil’s population, which has historically been subjugated.

In Brazil, because the mass media is a vehicle where the white elite project their ideologies and exert mental control over much of the population, black leaders like Zumbi are usually purposely neglected in academia and by the state. Brazilian racism works to silence and delete Black voices and stories. So even though much of the population is stuck in psychological shackles, many are becoming  empowered by the knowledge of the ancestors. They are marching in the streets and beginning to constitute what may be called own will to be free from mental prison.

The 20th of November is a constant reminder to Brazilians to keep fighting for our freedom. And it is for this purpose that the streets are filled, the flags and portraits of Zumbi are held and waved. As the traditional drums are played: the force of Zumbi extends to every person in the Americas who seek to fight for equality.

The Republic of Palmares, is very important for the African-Brazilian, and especially for any Black person in the Americas, because it was the place where freedom for the enslaved African was won, even before the Haitian Revolution.

In a way the Quilombo of Palmares, is where Africa had reinvented itself for nearly a century. Palmares is a spirit, the fire that burns in the chest in search of justice. This memory is revived during the National Day of Zumbi and Black Consciousness in Brazil, and advances the struggle for socio-racial equality, for full freedom, which is longed for constantly by Blacks throughout the world, from Africa to its diaspora in the Americas.

Iraq Demands ‘Immediate’ Withdrawal of Turkish Forces from Its Territory*

President Abadi said the deployment, including tanks and artillery, is a ‘serious violation’ of Iraqi sovereignty 

Iraq has called on Turkey to “immediately” withdraw forces, including tanks and artillery, it has deployed in the country’s north without Baghdad’s consent, the premier’s office said on Saturday. 

“The Iraqi authorities call on Turkey to… immediately withdraw from Iraqi territory,” the statement said.

“We have confirmation that Turkish forces, numbering about one armoured regiment with a number of tanks and artillery, entered Iraqi territory… allegedly to train Iraqi groups, without a request or authorisation from Iraqi federal authorities,” it said.

The deployment “is considered a serious violation of Iraqi sovereignty,” it added.

Turkey, however, later denied that it has expanded its military activities in northern Iraq after it deployed troops close to an area controlled by ISIS.

“The camp in Bashiqa, 30 kilometres north east of Mosul, is a training facility established to support local volunteer forces’ fight against terrorism,” Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in a televised speech, denying reports that the deployment was in preparation for a ground operation against IS.

Turkish media reported that around 150 Turkish soldiers backed by 20 to 25 tanks had been sent by road to the Bashiqa area near Mosul, the ISIS main hub in Iraq.

Peshmerga forces from Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region are deployed in the area, and Turkey’s Anatolia news agency said the troops were there to train them.

IS overran swathes of territory north and west of Baghdad last year, and Iraqi forces backed by US-led air strikes are battling to drive the militants back.

The peshmerga are one of the most effective Iraqi forces in the anti-IS fight, but coordination between them and the federal government in Baghdad has generally been poor.

E.U. Takes Control of Greek Borders*

E.U. Takes Control of Greek Borders*

Ever since this summer’s dramatic “referendum” farce, and the subsequent hijacking of the Greek banking system by the ECB’s ELA, Greece has officially been a nation without state sovereignty. Europe reminded Greece of just this a few days ago when days after its waved the carrot before Turkey promising billions in aid, and an E.U. acceptance fast track, it threatened Greece with expulsion from the Schengen customs union (a union which as a subsequent leak revealed will likely be “temporarily” shuttered for as long as two years unless the refugee crisis is brought under control).

Perhaps to confirm that few things will stand in its mission-creep to subjugate the sovereignty of European member states, starting with the poorest and most insolvent, namely Greece, we find out that the E.U. and its border agency, is not only preparing to take over border control of countries that have been found to be “ill-equipped” to deal with the refugee problem, but has already launched this plan into action in Greece.

Because after being threatened with expulsion from the Schengen zone, Greece (which does not actually share a contiguous, physical border with any Schengen nation) caved in and accepted an offer from the European Union to bolster its borders with foreign guards as well as other aid, including tents and first aid kits. This decision follows reports that Greece was unwilling to accept foreign border guards on its territory, but these were later denied by the government.

“Greece asked #Frontex yesterday to provide rapid intervention teams to the Aegean islands. https://t.co/gLF2D4deEu

— Frontex (@Frontex) December 4, 2015

The deployment of additional officers will begin next week.

As Keep Talking Greece writes, “the masks have fallen. Hand in hand, the European Union and the Frontex want to cancel national sovereignty and take over border controls in the pretext of “safeguarding the Schengen borders”. With controversial claims, they use the case of Greece to create an example that could soon happen “in the border area near you.”  And the plan is all German.

Paranoia? Or just another confirmation that the Eurozone is using every incremental, and produced, crisis to cement its power over discrete European state sovereignty and wipe out the cultural and religious borders that prevent the amalgamation of Europe into a Brussels, Berlin and Frankfurt-controlled superstate?

Decide for yourselves after reading this from The Independent:

EU considers measures to intervene if states’ borders are not guarded

The European Union is considering a measure that would give a new E.U. border force powers to intervene and guard a member state’s external frontier to protect the Schengen open-borders zone, E.U. officials and diplomats said yesterday in Brussels.

Such a move would be controversial. It might be blocked by states wary of surrendering sovereign control of their territory. But the discussion reflects fears that Greece’s failure to manage a flood of migrants from Turkey has brought Schengen’s open borders to the brink of collapse.

Germany’s Thomas de Maiziere, in Brussels for a meeting of E.U. interior ministers, said he expected proposal from the E.U. executive due on December 15 to include giving responsibility for controlling a frontier with a non-Schengen country to Frontex, the EU’s border agency, if a member state failed to do so.

“The Commission should put forward a proposal … which has the goal of, when a national state is not effectively fulfilling its duty of defending the external border, then that can be taken over by Frontex,” de Maiziere told reporters.

He noted a Franco-German push for Frontex, whose role is largely to coordinate national border agencies, to be complemented by a permanent European Border and Coast Guard – a measure the European Commission has confirmed it will propose.

Greece has come under heavy pressure from states concerned about Schengen this week to accept EU offers of help on its borders.

Diplomats have warned that Athens might find itself effectively excluded from the Schengen zone if it failed to work with other Europeans to control migration.

Earlier this week, Greece finally agreed to accept help from Frontex, averting a showdown at the ministerial meeting in Brussels.

E.U. diplomats said the proposals to bolster defence of the external Schengen frontiers would look at whether the E.U. must rely on an invitation from the state concerned.

“One option could be not to seek the member state’s approval for deploying Frontex but activating it by a majority vote among all 28 members,” an E.U. official said.

Under the Schengen Borders Code, the Commission can now recommend a state accept help from other EU members to control its frontiers. But it cannot force it to accept help – something that may, in any case, not be practicable.

The code also gives states the right to impose controls on internal Schengen borders if external borders are neglected.

As Greece has no land border with the rest of the Schengen zone, that could mean obliging ferries and flights coming from Greece to undergo passport checks.

Asked whether an E.U. force should require an invitation or could be imposed by the bloc, Swedish Interior Minister Anders Ygeman said: “Border control is the competence for the member states, and it’s hard to say that there is a need to impose that on member states forcefully.

“On the other hand,” he said, referring to this week’s pressure on Greece, “we must safeguard the borders of Schengen, and what we have seen is that if a country is not able to protect its own border, it can leave Schengen or accept Frontex. It’s not mandatory, but in practice it’s quite mandatory.”

A dramatic increase in E.U. powers over national territory would be deeply controversial in much of Europe.

On Thursday, Danes, who are part of the Schengen zone, heeded Eurosceptic calls and voted against giving their government power to deepen its cooperation with the EU policy agency.

The European Union faces another test over the next two years as Britain, its second biggest economy, prepares to hold a referendum on whether to quit – although it is not a member of the 26-nation Schengen zone. (full article Irish Independent)

Our Greek friends at KTG are hardly enthused about ceding control of their borders to Europe:

“Dramatically increase E.U. powers over national territories? Be my guest. Brussels and Berlin should not be surprised to see the increase of Eurosceptics spreading like mushrooms. Brussels and Berlin may save the Schengen zone and the Euro zone, but in the end they will stand there with their pants down.”

Maybe, but that would require Europe’s “sovereign” states to take a stand against the oppressor. So far, they have all failed and refused to do that as any attempts to exit the Euro and Eurozone, would mean immediate loss of all Euro-denominated savings and a collapse of the financial sector as Greece found out the hard way.

For the time being however, we bring to mind the May 30, 2008 presentation from then-AIG’s Bernard Connolly who laid out precisely what is happening now in Europe some seven years ago.

Here is his answer to the question What Europe Wants:

“To use global issues as excuses to extend its power:

  • environmental issues: increase control over member countries; advance idea of global governance
  • terrorism: use excuse for greater control over police and judicial issues; increase extent of surveillance
  • global financial crisis: kill two birds (free market; Anglo-Saxon economies) with one stone (Europe-wide regulator; attempts at global financial governance)
  • EMU: create a crisis to force introduction of “European economic government”

The full presentation, uncannily prescient then, can be read below.

The Syrian oil fields targeted in U.K. airstrikes were already “obliterated” by Russia*

Immediately after parliament voted in favour of military intervention in Syria, the RAF began bombing the ISIS (Daesh) controlled al-Omar oil fields. The strikes were branded as “successful” by the defence secretary. However, according to some reports, these very same oil fields have already been destroyed.

On October 23rd The Express announced the al-Omar oil fields had been “obliterated”. This was backed up by statements from U.S, operations officer Major Michael Filanowski, who said

“there were 26 targets and all 26 were struck.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said that coalition air strikes destroyed pipelines and facilities back in October.

Yet, it is now reported that the first U.K. air strikes successfully hit the same al-Omar oil fields. The Express were back on the subject, stating

The jets struck targets in the Omar oil field in Eastern Syria, dealing a “real blow” to the death cult, also known as Daesh.

Why are we targeting oil fields that have already been “obliterated”? The Independent reported that only some of the facilities were damaged in October, and had already been somewhat repaired. Yet, even if they weren’t entirely destroyed, how much can they have been repaired in the intervening weeks? Perhaps the achievements in October were greatly exaggerated, or there is a lack of intel for other targets.

The coalition has targeted the Daesh ‘stronghold’ of Raqqa. Yet, calling it a ‘stronghold’ rather whitewashes the civilian presence within Raqqa, as it is an occupied city. People who lived in Raqqa are (shockingly) against the bombing, as The Observer reports

“They fear that more bombs will cost more innocent lives in a city where the civilian population is now held prisoner by ISIS to serve as a human shield.”

Daesh are preventing civilians leaving Raqqa in order to use them as protection from looming air strikes.

David Cameron keeps talking about air strikes as part of a ‘wider strategy’ to tackle Daesh, but doesn’t tell us what role air strikes play in this ‘wider strategy’, or what the ‘strategy’ is, apart from loose claims about removing Assad. It is likely this language is used to mask the fact these air strikes are ill thought out, have no clear endgame and are in the name of revenge.

As, Labour MP Gerald Kaufman said in the House of Commons

“I am not going to be a party to killing innocent civilians for what will simply be a gesture.”

Bombing targets that have already been largely destroyed gives weight to the assertion that these strikes may be a token gesture, so as to appear to be taking a firm hand in response to the Paris attacks. Solid results are unimportant, just the autotelic symbolism of dropping the bombs themselves.

Iraqi PM Considers U.S. Ground Forces an Act of War*

Iraq has not requested that any country send ground troops into its territory and will regard any such move as a “hostile act,” the country’s prime minister, Haider Al-Abadi, said in view of a U.S. decision to deploy Special Forces in the country.

Iraq “will consider any country sending ground combat forces a hostile act and will deal with it on this basis,” Al-Abadi said in a statement published by the prime minister’s office on Thursday, adding that

“the Iraqi government is committed to not allowing the presence of any ground force on the land of Iraq.”

“The Iraqi government confirms its firm and categorical rejection of any action of this kind issued by any country [that] violates our [Iraq’s] national sovereignty,”Al-Abadi also said in the statement.

Baghdad “did not request any side… to send ground forces to Iraq,” he added, thus refuting reports that the Iraqi government had called for deployment of foreign troops to help Iraqi forces fight ISIS.

Iraq does not need any foreign forces from any state or international coalition, it only needs weapons, ammunition and training from its partners and allies in the fight against IS, the prime minister’s statement says.

Al-Abadi’s statement comes after the U.S. announced plans to dispatch Special Forces to Iraq to fight ISIS, both in Iraq and northern Syria. On November 24, a U.S. Combined Joint Task Force spokesman, Colonel Steve Warren, said that about 100 Expeditionary Targeting Force personnel would be sent to Iraq with some U.S. senators proposing tripling that number, AFP reports.

Even though U.S. President Barack Obama had repeatedly claimed that there would be no U.S. “boots on the ground,” he eventually approved the deployment of Special Forces against IS.

It is still unclear how the Iraqi prime minister’s statement will affect U.S. deployment plans, with U.S. officials yet to comment.

In October, Iraq’s ruling coalition calling on the prime minister to request Russian air support in the fight against IS, criticizing the actions of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.

“The largest bloc has sent a request to the prime minister to add further forces to the fight against terrorism and not only to rely on the United States and the international coalition, which has up till now been rather shy in its efforts to destroy [Islamic State] bases in Iraq,” Saad Al-Matlabi, a member of the country’s State of Law Coalition, told RT at that time.

“The public mood is definitely in favour of Russian involvement because it has been over a year and a half now and ISIS has flourished in Iraq under the American airstrikes. One could question the honesty and integrity of the U.S airstrikes,” the Iraqi politician added, stressing that Russian strikes in Syria “have proved quite efficient in destroying [Islamic State] bases …”

In earlier statements, Al-Abadi also claimed he would “welcome” Russian air support.

“If we get the offer, we’ll consider it. In actual fact, I would welcome it,” he said in an interview with France-24 TV on October 1, referring to potential Russian air strikes against IS on Iraqi territory.

Al-Abadi also accused the U.S-led coalition of a lack of support in that interview and also questioned the will of the West to defeat ISIS.
