New Defense Secretary – General ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis

The US stance on foreign affairs became a little clearer this week as Donald Trump announced his new Defense Secretary – ‘Mad Dog Mattis’.  Many might be a little concerned about that sort of nickname for one of the most powerful positions in the world, yet Donald Trump reveled in the nickname and perhaps indicated the coming administration’s international positioning.

BBC World News

It was a surprise announcement but only the timing as many had predicted that the Ex-General would be appointed next week.   Instead Trump decided to make it public during a rally in Cincinnati this week, the crowd were cheering as he made the statement.

So who is James Mattis? Well he;s a retired Marine general who made his reputation during the Iraq invasion of 2003 where he spearheaded the 1st Marine’s Divisions quick advance into Baghdad.   He has a good reputation as a military strategist although his techniques are often thought as more blunt and direct.

He has held some high levels of command, and was previously a commander of US Central Command the section of the military concerned with the Middle East.  His opinion on places like Iran is very hard line, more power and force than diplomacy.   He has previously accused the Iranian government of various crimes including a plot to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington DC.

The appointment though is not guaranteed as there is no automatic approval by the Senate because he has only been retired for three years.  Anything under seven years requires a Congressional Waver under a law implemented in 1947.   This will need to be considered by the Senate Armed Services Committee as the appointment is only a nomination until formally approved.

Columbia Extend Peace Accord with rebels

There is hopefully good news for Columbia with the government expected to sign a new peace deal this week with the Farc rebels.

Many where wary that this wouldn’t happen, as a deal was previously rejected in a referendum last month. The Government took the approach of revising the deal instead of completely rejecting and the updated version will be submitted to Congress for their approval instead of a new vote.

Opposition groups are unhappy because it leaves many rebels they believe escaping punishment for crimes and human rights abuse. However the reality is that it is the only viable route to ending almost 50 years of armed conflict in the country which has claimed the lives of more than a quarter of a million people.

It has taken over four years of negotiations between the government and rebels to reach that initial agreement which was concluded at the beginning of the year. Both sides actually signed the agreement before the world in Cartagena on the 26th September. However the President of Columbia – Juan Manuel Santos has pledged to allow the people of Columbia a say in the peace process too.

In a predecessor to shock votes in the West, the people narrowly rejected the agreement in the referendum among widespread shock. Both sides agreed to a peace fire in order to reconsider their positions and President Santos met one of the leading opponents to the deal in order to listen to the objections.

  • The result was a modified deal designed to combat the main objections to the peace deal –
  • The rebels must declare and release all their assets. This will primarily be used for compensation payments for the victims of the conflict
  • The points raised by religious groups about the agreement have been largely addressed.
  • There is a time limit set of 10 years for the transitional justice system.
  • Farc rebels will supply information about any drug smuggling activities they were involved in.
  • The peace agreement is not to be included in Colombia’s constitution

There is a real hope that the country of Columbia will now see some peace after years of violence and destruction.  Not only has  there been this civil war but as anyone who has watched the excellent Narcos on Netflix, drug violence has thrived in this environment.  The show is not available on all regions of Netflix so try this US DNS Netflix solution if you’re not able to see it.

The deal should now pass as although there is still some opposition the Government have a reasonable majority and some support from other parties.  The reality is that most Columbians are simply fed up of the war and violence that has become almost normal for the country.  Although many still would like to see punishment for some of the rebel’s atrocities it seems unlikely that they will ever agree to a deal which stipulates this.

Famous Pacifists – Nhat Hanh

Because liberty without responsibility isn’t true liberty. You don’t should talk as a way to teach. Have you ever done anything wherever your mind is solely with that specific activity. You may meditate on someone, and in case you have enough mindfulness and concentration, you can earn a breakthrough and understand the essence of that individual.

There’s an interruption. That is the reason why mindfulness is a wellspring of happiness and joy. It is vital to our practice. The practice may be pleasant, joyful.


Called Thay,” or teacher, by his followers, he’s particularly connected to the devoted custom of mindfulness. Right Concentration is turning the mind to concentrate on an object, for example a flower, or possibly a lit candle, or even a concept including loving compassion. From the start of my own out-breath to the end of my own out-breath, my mind is continually with it.

You’re not there in the current moment, living your existence deeply. Our mind could be caught before or later on, in regrets, sorrow, fear, or uncertainty, and so our mind isn’t there. If we’re aware of our life…, our way of taking a look at things, we’ll really know how to make peace right within the moment, we’re alive.” Be prepared to learn throughout our whole life and also to observe reality in yourself as well as within the world all the time.

Simply speaking, I was pursuing my very own agenda somewhere later on, not being fully within the present with him. You should live your own life mindfully and deeply. Meditate on the entire world into which you’re bringing new beings. Don’t lose consciousness of the existence of suffering within the life of the planet.

He was not permitted to return. You don’t think of days gone by anymore. In case your in-breath is short, let it be short. If is not done with some practice, we won’t have the capacity to step out of it.   Forget all the fake meditation shows and documentaries on TV that only work with a residential VPN service, they don’t work, you don’t need them.

Suppose you’re with a crowd of people contemplating a lovely sunset. I hope you will take some time to take a seat with one another, have tea with your buddies along with your loved ones, and discuss these things. If we take the clouds along with the rain from the flower, the flower won’t be there. With the eye of the Buddha, we’re able to view the clouds along with the rain within the flower.

Whenever your mind is there with the body, you’re established within the present moment. It’s a very elegant type of silence, an extremely powerful type of silence. By being within the moment and having the ability to concentrate effectively, an awareness of joy is the present time is felt. So even by simply taking the required time to develop into conscious of, and identify these unpleasant ideas and emotions is an enormous step!

As long as you are driving your vehicle, you might see the tension within your body. You don’t must interfere with your breathing. Breathing in, I’m aware of my own entire body. Breathing out, I’m aware of my own body.

So the 2nd exercise would be to follow your in-breath as well as your out-breath all of the way through. A thinking person uses the finger to view the moon. Somebody who only examines the finger and mistakes it for the moon won’t ever find the actual moon.” Permit your breath to happen.

Multinational Disarmament Talks

For many it’s seemed like an impossible dream for decades but last month a UN mandated panel called on the UN General Assembly to consider a groundbreaking proposal.  Multilateral negotiations on nuclear disarmament, although regrettably already being boycotted by the world’s nuclear armed countries.

The Open-Ended Working group on Nuclear Disarmament is chaired by a Thai ambassador called Thani Thongthakdi, has claimed that the proposal was a strong signal of support, but he too admitted that without the Nuclear nations involved there would be little impact.

There were 68 votes for the proposal and 22 against, which at least recommends that efforts are made to at least attempt to launch these negotiations and include it on the agenda for discussion.  Unfortunately as ever most countries vote for their own priorities and it seems obvious that before these negotiations even start efforts must be made to include the nuclear powers.    Although legally the process would be uncertain it is likely any treaty adopted by non-nuclear armed powers would simply be ignored.

Many experts have suggested that these discussions could be directed at an incremental policy of disarmament.   Even implementing policies and agreements like ‘no first use’ would be a huge step to ridding the planet of these weapons of destruction.     Pressure to instigate this policy on the nuclear powers would be a positive step to banning their use without actually reducing levels of their arsenals.

The idea is popular among the pragmatic pacifists, simply because it starts to give up on the whole ideas that you can have a secure world by threatening to blow others up.  In the USA, President Obama has been considering implementing this policy before he leaves office.  However he has faced widespread criticism from many areas of American politics, and of course it is highly unlikely to be a Donald Trump type policy either.

Australia’s Longest Military Campaign

It’s interesting sometimes to see the perceptions of a war from other directions.  We all tend to be given a different version of events from a political standpoint depending where we happen to live.  However the internet gives us the chance to tip aside that curtain and view the news from another viewpoint.


One of those chances was out this month with a new documentary being aired on Australia’s ABC channel called Afghanistan: Inside Australia’s War.  In it we can hear a host of former prime ministers, soldiers, generals and other high profile individuals give their insights into the longest military campaign that Australia has ever been involved in.  It’s unsure whether this documentary will be released outside Australia but you should be able to pick it up on the ABC iView player by using an Australian proxy for the next few weeks at least.

One of the star interviewees was the prime minister who took Australia into this war, a decision he was extremely apprehensive about even then.  Now over 15 years later this documentary is the closest people will find out about what has been happening to the Australian military presence in Afghanistan and how their soldiers have adapted to the difficult situations they have been placed in.

There are also lots of interviews with both Australian generals and perhaps more interestingly with ordinary soldiers who risked their lives.  One moving piece is from a Commando as he explained how he felt after killing a Taliban fighter.

Also interviewed is the former prime minister Julia Gillard who had to attend 24 funerals for Australian personnel who lost their lives in Afghanistan.  She explained she constantly wondered whether this cost was worth the huge cost that the military paid for by risking their lives.

The fact of whether it was successful is still open to debate, Australian forces were withdrawn after 12 years at the end of 2013 – the casualty list stood at 41 killed and 281 servicemen seriously injured.   Now in Afghanistan there are frequent reports that insurgents are now reclaiming the territory that Australia fought for less than 3 years ago.

It’s always good to see these different perspectives you can see how other country’s media report these same news events just by switching your IP address online.   This video shows how to watch BBC iPlayer Australia where you can pick up the news from the BBC.

Turkey Retaliates Against Kurds

After the brutal car bombing in Ankara, Turkey has retaliated by bombing many of the Kurdish military positions in Northern Iraq.  They have also rounded up and arrested many militants in Turkey in response to the suicide attack even though there has been no direct proof or claim of responsibility from the Kurdish leaders.

The Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu has indicated that were strong indications that  the Sunday’s attack was carried out by the PKK who are also known as the rebels of the Kurdistan Worker’s Party.  Although many international agencies are worried that the Government are merely using the PKK as a scapegoat because they have not claimed responsibility.

ankara-70528_640 (1)

The PM explained that 11 people have been detained who were directly related to the suicide attack which killed 37 people who were nearby the two bus stops targeted.  The police are running DNA checks to identify the exact identity of the bomber and the assistant.  There are rumors that the actual suicide bomber was in fact a woman, though this has not been officially confirmed yet. It’s not surprising that there is confusion now, especially with the Turkish Government taking control of most of the media and filtering internet access primarily using DNS.

Turkey is now becoming an increasingly fractured place, with many enemies both within and surrounding it’s borders. There are many enemies across in Syria including the Government, Kurdish rebels who are populating the Syrian and Iraqi borders with Turkey plus of course many ISIS operatives outside and within the country.   The country is also struggling to cope with the huge amount of refugees from the Syrian conflict.

One of the biggest problems is that the peace process between the Turkish government and the PKK broke down last year. The conflict has been continuing for 30 years and it was hoped that the peace talks would have brought a lasting peace to the conflict.  Both sides blame each other for the break down and it looks unlikely that the talks will be resumed in the near future in such a toxic atmosphere.

More than 200 people have already been killed in suicide bombings since last July, all of them were either blamed on ISIS or the Kurdish group.  Although the attackers might change all are a result of the Turkish Government’s ill executed foreign policy particularly with regards to the Syrian conflict.

The Turkish Government see no distinction between the PKK and ISIS and have been seeking assistance from countries like the US to fight them.  However the Kurdish militia who many believe have some affiliations with the PKK have been strong allies to many in the fight against the common enemy ISIS.

In many ways the bombings have not changed the Turkish Government’s tactics, they already had plans for operations against the Kurdish militants.  they have vowed to wipe out the PKK until the group is completely wiped out.

Peace Memorials Around the World

There is little doubt that the most moving monuments to peace around the world are those that are linked to moments of great destruction. The Genbaku Dome in Hiroshima is one of those special places, it’s skeleton was preserved by the survivors of one of the greatest single acts of violence that human beings have perpetrated in their history.


That act took place on the 6th August, 1945 when an Atom bomb was dropped on the bustling town of Hiroshima.   The explosion destroyed almost completely the commercial and political centre of the city, the Genbaku dome was one of the very few buildings which survived the blast.

The building has not been restored although it has been made safe, and a plaque on the side of the building reads :

Let all the souls here rest in peace. For (we) shall not repeat the evil.

The simple fact is that over 140,000 people lost their lives in that single explosion and people still gather there to commemorate the day. It is a day that changed the world and one that should be remembered particularly as Japan rethinks it’s pacifist ideology which it has adhered to for the past few decades. The issue was examined in depth by a wonderful report on Newsnight from the BBC a few weeks ago, you can watch BBC TV online using this method if you’re outside the Uk and want to catch it.

If you’re ever near Hiroshima, it is a place worth visiting it’s large enough to spend a couple of hours in and the surrounding parks and exhibits are unique. The story of that day are told in words and through surviving remnants. It is a heartbreaking lesson in history, yet perhaps something we should all see.

Don’t Cheer the Russian Bombs

Some times it gets confusing distinguishing the genuine peace activists, especially when they start applauding violence. Yet there is a growing view that the Russians bombing the hell out of Syria is going to make things better.

The arguments are just as confusing, things like Western intervention makes things worse (ergo Russians will do better, ermm), we’re just letting ISIS win and stuff like that. The idea that dropping bombs on the utter chaos that is Syria will make things better or defeat ISIS seems to me completely misguided.

After all, ISIS thrives in the sort of war torn chaos that wide spread bombing causes. They receive a ready supply of martyrs to be every time some innocent civilian is killed from their family, friends and bystanders. Not to mention the damage that is caused to infrastructure, dragging back Syria to the stone age is only going to suit one side of this battle and that’s ISIS who are happiest living there.

The problem too, is that there’s no such thing as a good bomb, you know the sort that lands neatly on the baddies head whilst not damaging anything else. We’ve seen the damage that super accurate, laser guided missiles can do when they go astray (which they do frequently). The idea that the heavy duty, carpet bombing style tactics favored by the Russians is going to minimize collateral damage is simply insane.


The bombs will inspire the fanatics and bring misery to the innocent. the bombs will ensure a steady supply of jihadists with yet another enemy to rally against. You only have to watch the BBC news and documentaries, try this method if you can’t access, to see that violence only fuels the religious hatred of such zealots.

What is required in Syria is a peace process, something for ordinary civilians to rally around and give them hope. Syrians need a de-escalation in conflict, negotiations, arms embargo – it’s not an easy solution but it’s the only route to true peace. Bombs never solve anything in chaotic situations like Syria, they simply give the warmongers and excuse to carry on killing.

Is Pro-Active Pacifism a Viable Option?

Seventy years after World War II finished, should we be thinking about peace or about war?

World War I, in its day, was called “the war to end all wars.” It wasn’t. Two states, in its wake, went pacifist.

Brute power had had it’s day. Let power rule that is simply pacified. Military headquarters, Figueres declared, could be transformed into an art museum.

Costa Rica, fine area. Not wealthy, having a poverty rate estimated at 23 percent, but enviably happy (most joyful nation on earth, as stated by the Happy Planet Index, which rates Japan 45th), and admirably green (a quarter of its own land area is officially protected against industrial encroachment). There is no censorship either and little of the paranoia that armed states seem to possess. You don’t need to use fast proxies like these to bypass blocks and filters


To this day it does not have any navy, military or air force.

Japan’s pacifism is made from sterner stuff. Perhaps it needed to be. The market in Japan is a behemoth; Costa Rica’s isn’t. Among Japan’s close neighbors really are an unpredictable and a growing superpower — potentially mad, if states could be thus designated — nuclear power, neither favorable. Costa Rica faces no risks that are similar.

Was postwar Japan more than nominally pacifist? “Land, sea and air forces, along with other war potential, will never be kept,” says Article 9. The Self-Defense Forces as well as their state of the art weapons, backed with a large American military presence, appear to mock that pious vow. The fact remains, nevertheless, that the military in Japan has managed under legal and constitutional constraints that hobble the armed forces in no other sovereign country. Whether those constraints qualify as pacifism is an open question. Surely they don’t by the standards of Costa Rica. A better question might be: Can the standards of Costa Rica be made worldwide?

Can Pacifism Lead us to Peace or More War

It’s now been over 70  years since the end of the second World War.  The first World was was meant to be the ‘war to end all wars’, clearly this wasn’t the case.  However there was a huge global impact and two nations almost immediately turned pacifist both modifying their constitutions to reflect this.

The first country, was Japan and a couple of years later, the central American county of Costa Rica followed their example. The reasons for the  Japanese change are well documented, but less so the country of Costa Rica.

The leader of the country Jose Ferrer, seized power in a very bloody military coup – not an unusual occurrence in South America in the last century.  However what was unusual was the almost instant change in politics – militarism was thrown out and instead pacifism embraced.  He announced that the military would be disbanded and the headquarter’s turned into an art museum.

The pacifism of Costa Rica is arguably easier to sustain, a smaller, relatively poor country it has nowhere near the responsibilities or interests of the gigantic Japanese economy.  Also it can be argued that Japan exists in a much more volatile area – rising superpowers like China and the dangerous , erratic North Korea to name two examples.  It is very much an area of trouble, mistrust and growing dangers to world peace, even in China people routinely use VPN and security services like this  because they are constantly monitored and logged when online.

Costa Rica’s stance on arms hasn’t brought it wealth that’s for sure.  However it is a beautiful, peaceful place to live and ranks as the happiest country in the world according to the Happy Planet Index.  It has wonderful green credentials too with nearly 25% of it’s land mass legally protected against commercial and industrial encroachment.

Was postwar Japan over nominally pacifist? “Land, sea and air forces, in addition to other war potential, will never be preserved,” says Article 9. The Self-Defense Forces as well as their state of the art weaponry, backed by a substantial American military presence, appear to mock that pious vow. The fact remains, however, that the military in Japan has worked under legal and constitutional constraints that hobble no other sovereign country’s armed forces. Whether those restraints qualify as pacifism is an open question. Certainly they do not by the standards of Costa Rica. A better question might be: Can the standards of Costa Rica be made worldwide?

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, since taking office in December 2012, has made no secret of his intent to steer Japan in the contrary direction. This is consistent having an assurance he had made the previous September to the United Nations General Assembly. Japan, he explained, “will just bear the flag of proactive contribution to peace.”

Thus was born “proactive pacifism” — enlarged interaction under fewer restrictions with more countries’ armed forces in more far-flung international battles — raising, necessarily, the question: How much “proactivity” can pacifism bear without slowly, imperceptibly (if not fast) evolving into its opposite — specifically, militarism?

The Discipline of Peaceful Thought

Take a step back from all the warring, bombing, hatred and killing for just a moment and find a moment to think a happy thought. Sure it can seem to be tough to do that when there is a great high wall of resentment and hate in the way.

But do it anyway. If for no other reason other than the simple fact that you can.

If you’re wondering what this has to do with anything related to whatever it is that people find excuses to kill and main each other for, here’s the thing.

Every human has a mind and the ability to think. And get this. Our thoughts are actually the only things in this life that we have complete and total control over. We can think anything we want to and nobody else can make us think what they want us to think.

Take that away and mull it over in your mind for a while. You’ll agree the above point is completely true and it is explained at length in the many explanatory articles published at Sure, we can be tricked into thinking about whatever is going on around us. Most of do exactly that for most of the time.

But when we choose our own thoughts, we have complete control over what goes on inside our heads no matter what anyone or anything else may try to do to stop us. That fact alone could change the world in a heartbeat if only everyone were aware of it.

The reason would be that people who have been tricked into following the lead of the haters and terrorists would suddenly realise they have a mind of their own, their own opinions and their own ideas and they don’t have to follow someone else’s crusade any more.

When it becomes clear that every one of us can create our own ideas and choose the way in which we live our lives, there would be no more need for blind hatred created by a mob mentality. The individual mentality would surface and question the motives of the people they once followed equally as blindly.

All wars could and would likely cease. All inter-racial and inter-religious hatred would dissolve because there would no longer be any basis for it as people’s thoughts turned to those of peace and happiness.

It only ever existed in the first place because it was born in the mind of unstable individuals with a thirst for power and the ability to sway the opinions of weaker minded people who didn’t know they held the power of their own destinies in their ability to think for themselves. The world would certainly be a different place today.

North Korea starts production of nuclear bomb fuel

We have recently learned that North Korea, is planning to restart its main nuclear bomb fuel reactor after it have been shut down for almost halv a year. We may still speculate if this is mere to create more power for the cities nearby, or if they are planning on producing fuel for their nuclear bombs. With all the hatred we have seen from North Korea lately, it may be very likely that they are using the plan to create more bombs. It’s highly unlikely that these new bombs will be used in an attack agaist the USA or South Korea, but most is likely an attempt to show of their power, and scare the western counties into leaving them alone. It’s by using recent commercial satellite imagery, that they had discovered an increased activity around this nuclear plant. James Kostumer from seems to think that this is die to the increased number of sanctions that united states and several european countries have used against them. According to mr. Kostumer and Dyrby Paulsen this have lead the North koreaen goverment to think, that the next step may be an invasion of their country. So now they are arming up to protect themselves.

This new activity at the 5-megawatt Yongbyon reactor is now being closely watched, mainly because many believe that North Korea owns more than a handful of nuclear bombs, and that they are planning on building a whole arsenal of nuclear missiles, that is powerful enough to reach America’s mainland.

We from that the Yongbyon plant, have earlier been used to produce plutonium, which have been used for past nuclear test explosions. This plant was restarted back in 2013, after it had being closed downn in 2007 due to a disarmament agreement.

By studying the images of the plan, it is very likely that from 24 December to 11 January, the reactor have shown an increased activity such as spilling hot water drainage from a pipe at a turbine building and an unnatural amount of snow-melt on the roofs of the reactor and turbine buildings. All things that could indicate that there are some activity in the reactor plant. However mr. Kostumer also seems to think that due the fact that the observation period was only about two weeks, it could merely but a routine testing or a scheduled maintenance. Still it’s something that we need to pay close attention to. Especially with a leader who speaks out as agressivily as Kim Jong-un. We can only hope that we won’t see any more activity from the reactor facility this year.

How dangerous could this be in the worst case? Well the Yongbyon reactor can produce about one bomb’s worth of plutonium per year. And the uranium enrichment facility, near the plant, can produce a small amount of fissile material for the bombs. So it’s not that we can expect to see hundreds of new nuclear bombs in North Korea. At the moment, it’s still unknown if North Korea has the required technology needed to make the warheads small enough to be mounted on missiles. But what we do know, is that with each nuclear test, they move one step closer to their goal. Something we here at would be very glad to see and end to.


Cairo Bomb Blast Shocks Egyptians

Two bombs exploded a week last Tuesday in the Egyptian cities of Alexandria and Cairo, killing one civilian, security officials said.

The Cairo home made bomb blast happened in Qasr al-Nil road near a busy square, and was concealed within an electric transformer, local media reported.  The story was covered by many domestic and international media agencies including some British TV station – here.

The blast targeting a police killed one civilian and wounded two others, including a 12-year old lad, near the second city of Alexandria in Egypt, authorities told AFP.

The explosion happened near a residential neighbourhood to the western outskirts of the Mediterranean city.

Authorities said the blast missed the checkpoint, which injure three individuals such as the lad, and was transferred from its earlier place.

Among the two grownups that were injured after died in hospital.

There is no immediate claim of responsibility for the two attacks.

Meanwhile, after two bombs were discovered by authorities in various terminals of the town ‘s major airport security measures heightened, security sources told the news agency.

Airport security said they were reviewing video footage while no arrests were made. The bombs were found using electronic devices.

German Foreign Policy Stance to Change

Germany will alter its security strategy, called the White Book, in response to Russia’s activities and efforts to use “power politics and military force”.
“We should have no delusions. Kremlin’s new policy started long before the disaster in Ukraine and can take us for an extremely very very long time to come,” she added. Until now, Germany directed a drive to impose sanctions against Russia and supported a diplomatic way to solve the crisis in Ukraine, in accordance with Reuters.

In the newest strategy, German armed forces can be more involved in strengthening something which is already occurring in Eastern Europe, NATO’s defense. Moreover, it’ll be a solution to other developments including the growth of cyber assaults, the Arab Spring, climate change and the militant Islamic State, which reveals that a more assertive international function is being sought by Germany.   As demonstrated in a recent documentary on British Television, which you can gain access here on an iPad – there have already been many fundamental changes in their foreign policy. Germany made a decision to send arms and ammo a year ago and the Parliament approved sending up to 100 soldiers to train these forces last month.

The White Books are released by the German Defense Ministry to summarize the strategic plan as well as the last one came out in 2006. The state was reluctant in taking parts until now as well as even though the public opinion was against any military purpose in international conflicts, the government officials asked recently to get a much more aggressive foreign policy.

2015 U.S. Military Pay Raise

Once again, the U.S. military is increasing its military spending.  Sigh.

In the US military, different pay charts exist for different ranks. In the army for example, the highest paid officials are the 4 star generals, especially those at the top ranking level. The pay is more or less the same for officials of equal rank across the various branches of the US military. These include the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marines. Any person who joins the military should take a look at the military pay chart for 2015. This is a chart that contains information about the remuneration levels of all enlisted, warrant and commissioned military personnel so they know what to expect.

bbc iplayer usa

Joining the military is always considered patriotic and a form of sacrifice for one’s own country. Even then, those who join the military expect to build careers, plan their futures, take care of their families and even acquire an education. What is important is for every single individual to understand their ranks, work hard for a promotion and then ensure they have the necessary information pertaining to the military pay chart. Those in any doubt or with questions of any kind can consult their senior officers for clarity and further information. Being certain is very important in the military.

Military pay charts also provide other important information pertaining to any soldier’s position. Some positions such as those of junior members earn a natural promotion with time while other positions have to be earned through merit. Therefore, those who work hard and exemplify high standards and gallantry will earn a well deserved promotion.

World Without Nuclear Weapons

It’s certainly the dream of this site, and five years ago President Obama stated in a speech that it was his aim too. So with the backing of the most powerful man on the planet, how much closer are we to achieving that goal? Well the respected Stockholm International Peace Research Institute – SIPRI have recently released some findings to help us view what progress has been made.

What they found does not surprise us. Most of the nuclear armed states still spend huge amounts of money on weapons, mainly modernising their existing arsenals. There seems little inclination to reduce never mind get rid of nuclear or other mass destruction level weapons.

There has been a steady decline in the number of nuclear enabled warheads over the last decade or so. The report states that nine countries still possess over 16000 of these weapons, a fall of about 5%, but the rate of reduction is slowing markedly. There is certainly little evidence to suggest that at any level complete disarmament is a policy or strategic goal of any of the military units who hold such weaponry.

There is also little surprise in who holds the majority of these weapons, over 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons are held by the USA and Russia. It should be said that that the fall in global nuclear weapons however small was largely due to the treaties agreed to these two superpowers.

There are five officially recognised nuclear weapon states who are – USA, China, France, Russia and the United Kingdom. All the other nations who possess these weapons like North Korea exist outside the global non-proliferation treaty. There is great criticism for these countries for not doing more to focus on disarmament. This was a central goal of the agreement which all other member nations signed whilst agreeing not to pursue arming themselves with nuclear based weapons. Simply put there has been very little evidence of this happening.

The report focused on the USA and Russia who instead of investing heavily in reducing their nuclear weapons have spent much more on modernizing existing systems. Including upgrading delivery systems,warheads and the production facilities required to produce such weapons. The same seems to be happening in other countries, although numbers might be falling slightly – existing weapons are being upgraded and developed constantly.

There have been many reports about the policies in these countries which seem to do little to reduce overall numbers of nuclear weapons. There was previously very high levels of political pressure being applied in many of these countries towards disarmament – the UK media used to focus heavily on this in earlier times – now if you watch British TV abroad using the internet, you’ll be unlikely to see many mentions at all.

Good News: The U.S. Military is Shrinking

Gawker recently published an article about how the US military is shrinking.  According to the military pay chart in 2014, pay is shrinking as well.

Taking the time to have a look at the military pay chart is something that everyone should do in order to have an accurate understanding of how much they would be able to make by simply offering their services to the military.

They have dealt on the war against cruelty and achieve the freedom that they fight for. With this, this will prove other nation that they are brave and strong enough to defend their own state and get the freedom that they ask for.

Pressure to Withdraw French Troops from Central African republlic

The bloodshed in the Central African republic shows no signs of abating.  Throughout the country Muslim extremists continue to focus their attacks on Christians and peace forces.

Last week there were reports from a priest that 75 people were killed in the small town of Boda, largely the result of heavy fighting between rebel forces and the peacekeepers.

France has contributed over 1400 troops to augment the 5000 strong African peace force, the idea was to increase strength to perhaps supress the violence.  It seems not to be working in fact the war is beginning to escalate.

There have been a number of massacres in mainly Christian villages which the peacekeepers have been unable to stop.  Often these villages are in the remote regions of the country particularly in the North West corner.  Unsurprisingly there is news of a Christian group forming called the anti-balaka who are intending to also battle the rebels.  There are increasing reports that this group too are committing human rights abuses as well.  The violence is starting to escalate out of control and the peacekeepers are becoming involved in the violence despite their best efforts.

Population displacement is also increasing as 10s of thousands flee from the fighting.  This causes even more humanitarian issues, as the refugees usually have no way to support themselves, charities are getting involved but they too have finite resources.

It’s not surprising that there is a growing feeling in France that the troops should be pulled out, that peacekeepers are not able to make a difference currently in the chaos.  You can see up to date news and reports on the French media who are covering the story in detail.  If you’re based outside France then you can watch French TV online using this method.

As you can see it allows you to access any of the online French TV stations which are normally blocked. It does this by masking your IP address and instead presenting a French one when you connect to the site.

Maintaining the Freedom of the Internet

For many people the internet is an essential link to the outside world.  For example in Iran, the opposition have little voice in every day media, but crucially they can speak their true thoughts online.  Which is why the regimes like the Iranian government so heavily censor what websites can be accessed.  Fortunately very few countries have mastered the ability to completely control access to the internet, the Chinese have perhaps come closest by pouring almost unlimited resources into the infamous Great Firewall of China and sponsoring rival social networking sites (controlled by the Government of course).

The technology is difficult though and trying to restrict access to random TOR exit nodes is a mammoth task.  Even using simple proxies and VPN servers will allow you to bypass most restrictions.  There are also some very sophisticated security software that provides many firewall/hopping, proxy switching features available commercially too.

Also available on YouTube.

The technology war will go on, with the Western democracies largely leaving the web unfiltered, instead concentrating on surveillance and data analyis – like the MI5 and projects like PRISM. Whilst the countries like China, Iran and Thailand slowly block access to more and more sites considered unsuitable for it’s citizens. This road however will probably lead to the scenario in North Korea, where in fact all external websites are blocked by default – a kind of Korean intranet. Thus the ruling parties will then decide – ‘not what to block’ but instead what you can specifically see – a whitelist of approved websites.

This is probably the only way a nation can completely control access to the internet completely. It’s likely to happen sometime in Iran if the current regimes maintain power – there are already Iranian alternatives to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter all controlled and regulated by the authorities of course. Whether this happens in China is less certain, economic measures and reliance on free trade to maintain growth would be extremely difficult to maintain under this sort of draconian policy.

War Against Education

It is true that there has been an argument from the past that education becomes the best weapon when it comes on learning. Yet, many people don’t believe on the capacities of education on changing the lives of the society, there are still people who can prove its benefits. There has been a war against education from the past because people usually protect and defend themselves through the education they undergone. If you check on the society today the people defend themselves through the education they take such us the law courses.  The træpiller is a part of education which opens the eyes of every individual in the society about the law. Each locality has its vision and objectives in order to progress and with the right to education, people will already be aware on how they can fully fulfill their objectives. Learning is a part of every life stages that a man should undergo. Of course, learning can make the mind of a person strong and ready to defend himself/herself in every obstacle that many pass onto him/her. Therefore, briketter should be applied. War against education should not be practiced in a place because you are the ones who can benefit from it and you should not prohibit yourself from this right.

The træpiller explained how education becomes beneficial onto your life. The war against education is truly a fool idea. If you prohibit yourself from education, you are just making yourself becomes ignorance on your rights anyway. It is true that we can still have our right even though we did not have that education but if you take it, and then it would be good to you because you can be aware of your other rights. It is being taught at school on what are you following natural rights and human rights. If you did not give yourself a chance to know your rights, you would surely be fooled on your rights and you would not be aware on some of your rights which you don’t know. A person has his own natural rights and human rights and you will be aware of those through getting your right to education. It is proven by briketter that a person will be aware of his own natural rights and human rights so that no one would fool him and would not be ignorant of their rights. 

The briketter can explain how education becomes advantage and relevant to a man’s life stages. Education is perhaps not a requirement to live but it is a big chance and opportunity to a person to be aware of his rights. The war against education should be stopped. It is a big hindrance to a person to develop his/her skill and talent. Yes, education can enhance a person’s talents and skills. Education serves as the training ground of an individual to be ready in facing his/her future. However, many people are not aware on the big benefits given by education and that is why war education has been created.
