But but but but but RT assured us that Hillary would be the one who started a war with Russia!

>The US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria conducted strikes against pro-regime forces in Syria Wednesday, the coalition said in a statement.

>The coalition said the strikes were carried out after forces allied to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "initiated an unprovoked attack" against a well-established Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters where coalition advisers were working with US-backed Syrian fighters.

>A US official told CNN that the attackers crossed the Euphrates River and were armed with artillery and other weapons. The US official said that US forces in the region counterattacked using artillery and aircraft.

>The official added that no US personnel were killed or wounded in the engagement.

>The official added that it was unclear exactly who the pro-regime forces were but the US is looking into whether Russian contractors operating in the vicinity might have been involved but added that there is no direct evidence yet that the Russians fired on the Syrian Democratic Forces facility where the US advisers were located. The official said they have not ruled out that Iranian backed-forces might have also been involved in the attack.

>"In defense of coalition and partner forces, the coalition conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression against partners engaged in the Global Coalition's defeat-Daesh mission," the coalition statement said, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

As the evidence mounts of unspeakable atrocities performed by western-supported "rebels", their sponsors are becoming more and more nervious and push for more agressive invasions, bombardment and violations of international agreements and laws.

>She faced down her critics in a heated debate in the Commons in the wake of the atrocity, which she described as “a stain on our humanity”, insisting the UK had needed to act rapidly to prevent further attacks.
Yet they announced several days of headstart to let the country get prepared for that staged attack. What a bunch of complete hypocrites.

>"Stop the mad behavior, the malign influence that you're sewing all over the world, it's time to come into the community of nations and if you do so we will welcome you," Kay Bailey Hutchison told Willem Marx on CNBC's "Street Signs" Monday.
Remember what I said earlier about American diplomacy 101?

>The cyberwar between the west and Russia has escalated after the UK and the US issued a joint alert accusing Moscow of mounting a “malicious” internet offensive that appeared to be aimed at espionage, stealing intellectual property and laying the foundation for an attack on infrastructure.

Though it is already not news that >>118155 gas cylinder was produced in Germany, more news emerge from abandoned chemical laboratories and underground storages captured and cleared Douma. And I'm not talking about bodies of executed civilians, of course.

>Russian military finds alleged chemical weapons lab in Douma
>Syria: Inside hospital to which alleged Douma chemical attack victims were brought

>The head of the largest medical relief agency in Syria claims that medics who responded to the suspected gas attack in Douma have been subjected to “extreme intimidation” by Syrian officials who seized biological samples, forced them to abandon patients and demanded their silence.
>“There has been a very heavy security presence on the ground ever since the attack and they have been targeting doctors and medics in a very straightforward way,”
>now in Turkey where he is supervising the departure from Syria of some of the Douma medics
>“Any medic who tried to leave Douma was searched so vigorously, especially for samples. At one medical point, seven casualties were taken away. The Russian military police were heavily involved. They were directing things.

It is very kind of these people to list number of methods of information control and warfare they use. Because they have no information on what methods are used by Syria and Russia, it is natural for them to project their own experience and attribute it to their sworn enemy.

And heroic and brave Russia is also claiming they shot down 54 of 47 cruise missiles, including 3 by SA-7, flawlessly defending all but the three targeted sites, and all without any missile wreckage being photographed or anybody whipping out their celphone to take a video of the fireworks, unlike all the videos of them launching missiles on unguided ballistic arcs after the cruise missiles hit.

"Who knew international trade would be so hard?" said the pretend billionaire.
>US President Donald Trump has agreed to reconsider the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade pact with primarily Asia-Pacific countries that he backed out of last year.

>Mr Trump made the commitment while meeting politicians from farming states, who are among those concerned about a trade war, senators say.

>The president has previously slammed the deal as a potential "disaster".

>But his trade strategy is under fire as a conflict escalates with China.

>Politicians, including some from his own party, are worried that he is leading the US into a damaging economic battle with China, after levying tariffs on steel and aluminium and threatening taxes on billions more in Chinese goods.

>They have said the administration should be working with other countries to pressure China, instead of wielding tariffs that invite retaliation on industries such as agriculture.

>Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican who represents Nebraska and has been sharply critical of the tariffs, said it was "good news" that the president directed top staff, including US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, to negotiate US entry into TPP".

"I hope that you all realize that corporations and politicos have already been caught trolling websites to manage impressions and manipulate opinion. It's an established tactic to use anonymous accounts to create an illusion of consensus.

It's the internet version of a laugh-track."

This article is garbage. Here's why:

Research shows that if you aren't a reader by the fourth grade, statistically you won't ever be. I'm curious who OP is posting this article for - an article which is without relevant context and describes nothing of the power relations behind this story. We are in the era of JTRIG- you simply cannot trust what appear to be social concensus cues on the internet anymore to base your opinions on. And since Reddit's top thread re:TPP has all the top comments pushing TPP, lest you not see for yourself what's going on lets get one thing out of the way: TPP is bad.

…Iron man Mattis halts deliveries. Nice to know that at least one person has their eye on the bottom line. Didn't the president promise to get rid of the thing completely?


The Defense Department has reportedly stopped accepting F-35 jets from Lockheed Martin because of a dispute over who would be responsible for covering the costs to fix a production error found in more than 200 of them.

“Production on the F-35 program continues and we are confident we will meet our delivery target of 91 aircraft for 2018. While all work in our factories remains active, the F-35 Joint Program Office has temporarily suspended accepting aircraft until we reach an agreement on a contractual issue and we expect this to be resolved soon,” a Lockheed spokeswoman told Reuters.

Fixing the jets won’t be simple because it could require technicians to travel to stations around the world, anonymous sources told Reuters.

It isn’t clear when the suspension began, but the Pentagon allegedly received two jets despite the suspension.

This isn’t the first time technical errors have disrupted the Pentagon’s most expensive weapons program.

Shrapnel from a blown jet engine crashed through a window of a Southwest Airlines flight and caused such a perilous drop in air pressure that a passenger suffered fatal injuries after nearly being sucked outside.
Passengers recall a harrowing scene where desperate crew members and others tried to plug the broken window, while also trying to save the mortally wounded woman, identified as a bank executive and mother of two.

The battered jet eventually made an emergency landing in Philadelphia and all other passengers made it off without serious injuries. But not before everyone on board used oxygen masks that dropped from the ceiling and many said their prayers and braced for impact.

“I just remember holding my husband’s hand, and we just prayed and prayed and prayed,” said passenger Amanda Bourman, of New York. “And the thoughts that were going through my head of course were about my daughters, just wanting to see them again and give them a big hug so they wouldn’t grow up without parents.”

Dallas-bound Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 out of New York had 144 passengers and a crew of five onboard, Southwest said in a statement. The plane was met on the tarmac by a phalanx of emergency vehicles that quickly sprayed the area with safety foam and aided the injured.

Jennifer Riordan of Albuquerque, N.M., was identified late Tuesday as the victim who died.

Riordan, a vice president of community relations for Wells Fargo bank and graduate of the University of New Mexico, was the first passenger death on a U.S. airline since 2009— and the first ever in Southwest Airlines' history.

The X-32 couldn't meet the Navy's maneuverability and payload requirements. All three versions would have had different wing designs while the F-35A and B share wings.
The X-32 couldn't do vertical lift with the same engine the X-35 had, they had to remove parts of the airframe to make it light enough.
The X-32 prototype was substantially different from what would have been produced, the X-35 was not.
And even scaled up as much as the X-35 was to the F-35, it was smaller to the point where it would have had about the same range as the AV-8B, while the F-35A and C have about same range as a F-14 with external tanks.

Also we consider political aspects:
Northrop Grumman had been embroiled in a number of fraud cases relating to the B-2 in the late 80s, and gave a senator's wife the clap via male escorts in a attempt to get support for the YF-23. Right around the time the JSF program was starting tests they got hit with another case where they'd been overcharging something like $100 million dollars for every B-2.

Boeing was suing the US government in a inherited lawsuit over the cancellation of the McD A-12 Avenger II that continued until 2014, which had been killed in 1990 by Dick Cheney because "no one could tell me how much the program was going to cost, even just through the full scale development phase, or when it would be available. And data that had been presented at one point a few months ago turned out to be invalid and inaccurate." Also at the same time POGO was flipping it's shit about cost overruns on the Super Hornet as I recall, also canted pylons lol.

Meanwhile, Lockheed had delivered the YF-22 without giving a politician's wife the clap and had won the ATF program.

So pretend you're on the selection committee back then. Boeing is insisting that if you just give them another chance they'll fix the problems with the X-32 and the next prototypes will be great, honest, while Lockheed has pretty much done fine and has delivered prototypes that meet requirements and are pretty much the same as what they want to make.

thats a very level headed summary of about 30 years of fighter aircraft development, thanks for posting even it was just pasta.
i'd lake to add that boeing got into the X-32 game mainly to get government freemoney to help develop the composite materials they were planning to use to make the 787 more lightweight. boeing got what they wanted out of the X-32/X-35 competition, the boeing entry was never seriously intended to develop to a fighter aircraft, but to make it look like they were working towards that end enough to get the composites development money for free. the government got to keep lockheed's feet to the fire with a little competition in exchange, it was a good deal all around as the government will eventually collect the X-32 money back in income taxes from boeing and boeing workers who would have otherwise been displaced by overseas aircraft manufacturing.

For more than 30 years, McKenna Denson says she's tried to get the Mormon Church to punish one of its top leaders for allegedly raping her in a secret room when she was a teenager training to be a missionary.

But she says her decades-long attempt to get justice only led to her being blamed and shamed by officials of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and that the words of her attacker have continued to haunt her: "'No one will believe you.'"

A full third of the senior Interior Department (DOI) career officials reassigned under Secretary Ryan Zinke in a major agency reshuffling are Native American, even though Native Americans make up less than 10 percent of the Department’s workforce, a review by TPM has found.

The finding comes days after Democratic lawmakers demanded an investigation into whether Zinke discriminated when he reassigned 33 career officials last summer, and follows on reports that Zinke has repeatedly told DOI officials he doesn’t care about diversity — which prompted one member of Congress to accuse Zinke of working to create a “lily-white department.”

The book of Judges 12:4-6
Then Jephthah gathered together all the men of Gilead and fought against Ephraim. The men of Gilead defeated Ephraim, and Gilead seized the fords of the Jordan against Ephraim. When any of the fleeing Ephraimites said, “Let me pass,” the men of Gilead would say to him, “Are you an Ephraimite?” If he answered, “No!” they would ask him to say “Shibboleth.”[a] If he said “Sibboleth,” not pronouncing it exactly right, they would seize him and kill him at the fords of the Jordan. Forty-two thousand Ephraimites fell at that time.

Outside of the bible, one of the most famous example of a Shibboleth occurred in WWII. If a "lost" American or British soldier suddenly appeared out of the woods, he would be asked to pronounce the word squirrel. It's near impossible for native German speakers to say.

Outside of conflict and linguistic difference, a shibboleth may be a cultural touchstone or group shared experience that is used to identify insiders and outsiders. I'm sure everyone here has seen this in stolen honor videos or accounts. (What's your MOS? What's the order of precedence for medals? What's on the menu at Aziz's in Bagram that won't give you diarrhea?).

Remington Outdoor, the second-largest U.S. gunmaker has suffered a “rapid” and “sharp” deterioration in sales and a similar drop in profits since January, and faces “continued softness in consumer demand for firearms,” credit analysts at Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings said in a report Friday.

S&P as a result has cut the company’s corporate credit rating — already at a junk-bond-level CCC+ — two full notches, to CCC-, a move likely to make the company’s high-yield debt less attractive to investors and lenders, and force Remington to pay more in interest. The company could face a change in control, bankruptcy, or default on its debt by next year.

A backlog of unsold, unwanted firearms will force Remington to operate at a loss and “pressure the company’s sales and profitability at least through early 2018, resulting in insufficient cash flow for debt service and fixed charges,” unless Remington gives up cash to pay for ongoing operations, S&P adds.

S&P expects “a heightened risk of a restructuring” of Remington’s $575 million senior secured loan and asset-based lending facility, which it is supposed to pay back in 2019.

If Remington defaults on its payments, based on the company’s current value, S&P expects first-lien creditors may receive around 35 cents back from every dollar they have lent or invested. Lower-rated creditors would get back less, or nothing.

Default is not yet “a virtual certainty,” the report added.

Gun companies knew the market would crash eventually. They had 8 plus years of the gravy train making them higher and higher profits, they could not build weapons and ammo fast enough.

Now in glorious Emperor Trump's America panic buying has went down considerably. Some people are sometimes sitting on piles of weapons they bought during the panic that they may not be able to sell for the wild profits. Even the bumps when Kim Jong Un starting really doing his shit hard and the Vegas shooting were probably nowhere near enough to make up for lost profits. I bet they are kicking themselves for not supporting Hillary under the table, the sheer amounts of profits they'd be making would be ridiculous.

Any guns people are going to be buying now are not going to be some shitty crap that Remington puts out, like that Phaser looking pistol that had to be recalled, but higher quality shit considering they are actually planning on using it rather then reselling it to suckers on gun broker.
