http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/03/14/cia-given-new-authority-conduct-drone-strikes-donald-trump-rolls/

>The Trump administration is pushing ahead with plans to loosen restrictions on drone strikes, removing the “near certainty” requirement of no civilian deaths outside war zones, according to US media reports.

>It has already given the CIA new authority to launch its own strikes against militants, reported the Wall Street Journal.

>And a senior White House official told The Washington Post that a review of drone policy was almost complete and would roll back other constraints imposed by Barack Obama.

>In particular, it will allow the Pentagon and CIA more autonomy to launch strikes against al-Qaeda and Isil terrorists without needing White House approval.

>“Some of the Obama administration rules were getting in the way of good strikes,” a US official briefed on the matter told NBC News.

>President George W Bush authorised America’s first drone strike in 2004 but the programme was rapidly scaled up by Mr Obama, provoking international condemnation and protests in countries such as Pakistan where CIA attacks were blamed for killing hundreds of civilians.

>As a result, Mr Obama introduced a rule that no strike could take place outside a war zone unless there was a “near certainty” that civilian deaths could be avoided.

>The Security Council held an emergency meeting on Wednesday about the attack, during which Russia and Syria again rejected the allegations — blaming the release of gas on the rebels while accusing other council members of relying on misinformation to attempt a regime change in Damascus.

>Moscow's representative repeated the Kremlin's earlier claim that the gas was released when a conventional airstrike hit a warehouse where rebels were secretly storing their own chemical weapons.

>Russia, which is among the countries with veto power over UN resolutions, said the draft proposal by the "anti-Damascus camp" was based on "falsified reports … taken at face value."

So you are stupid as fuck ISIS sandnigger (labelled as "Syrian rebel").

2. A bomb strikes and all the chemicals go up in the sky.
3. ...

>The proposed strike would involve launching Tomahawk cruise missiles to overwhelm Russian air defense systems used by the Syrian military. The Russian government currently helps maintain the air defense sites and advises the Syrian military.

>According to both U.S. military officials, the current proposal would likely result in Russian military deaths and mark a drastic escalation of U.S. force in Syria.

>One U.S. military official said the decision to allow the strikes, which would kill Russians, signals a significant change in policy by the Trump administration. A decision by Trump to go forward with the plan would be a reversal from the Obama administration, which denied multiple air strike proposals that would likely cause Russian personnel casualties in Syria.

Battle-hardened Southeast Asian Islamic State (IS) fighters returning from the Middle East following the group’s setbacks are expected to rebase in the southern Philippines, a security conference heard Tuesday.

Instability and the easy flow of weapons have made Mindanao and nearby Philippine islands attractive to extremist groups, said speakers at the Milipol conference on homeland security in Singapore.

“Currently, IS is moving towards creating a territory in southern Philippines. The most recent communication issued by IS has announced that they have formally declared an East Asia division of IS in the southern Philippines,” counter-terrorism analyst Rohan Gunaratna told the conference.

My favorite from the comments section:

>The online ad reads like something only a metallurgist could love: an offer to sell 22 pounds of highly pure lithium 6 every month, set for delivery from the port of Dandong, China.

>But it caught the attention of intelligence agencies around the world for a simple reason: Lithium 6 offers a fast way to turn an ordinary atom bomb into a hydrogen bomb, magnifying its destructive power by up to 1,000 times. The seller listed in the ad — who even provided his cellphone number — was identified in a recent United Nations report as the third secretary in the North Korean Embassy in Beijing.

>When President Trump meets with President Xi Jinping in Florida this week, administration officials say, his top agenda item will be pressing China to sign on to the most powerful set of economic sanctions ever imposed on North Korea over its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. Mr. Trump has repeatedly vowed to stop the North’s nuclear efforts, telling The Financial Times in an interview published on Sunday: “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will. That is all that I am telling you.”

>But experts say the lithium ad — with its implication that the North is happy to sell an excess supply of the precious material — suggests that it is far too late to prevent the nation from becoming an advanced nuclear power. It is unclear exactly what Mr. Trump means by “solve North Korea,” though he seems to be borrowing from the playbook of the four presidents before him, who fruitlessly tried, with differing mixes of negotiations, sanctions, sabotage and threats of unilateral strikes, to force the North to give up its program.

Agents from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation visited an office belonging to the operator of a casino on the remote U.S. island of Saipan that has attracted attention for its huge revenues, according to a local legislator and residents.

FBI personnel, accompanied by uniformed police officers, arrived Thursday morning at a local office used by Imperial Pacific International Holdings Ltd., the Hong Kong-based company that owns the Best Sunshine Live casino, local residents said. They stayed for several hours, with local police blocking access to the building.

“There definitely was some kind of investigation or raid being done," said Ed Propst, a member of the territorial legislature. "It appears to be a joint effort between local and federal authorities."

In a stock exchange statement Friday, Imperial Pacific said "neither the Group nor any of its staff has received any investigation notice from any of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation or government departments."

The FBI "is not in a position to comment at this time" on any enforcement actions in Saipan, Michele Ernst, a spokeswoman for the bureau in Hawaii, whose jurisdiction includes the island, said on Thursday.

Saipan local television, KSPN2, reported Thursday that there was an FBI raid at the Best Sunshine office. It’s not known whether Imperial Pacific was the target of any investigation or what law enforcement officials may have been seeking.

Shares of Imperial Pacific traded 5.6 percent lower at 2:11 p.m. in Hong Kong, after falling as much as 17 percent.

Saipan, an island of 50,000 residents closer to China than to Hawaii, relaxed rules on casinos in 2014 and soon awarded Imperial Pacific exclusive rights to open casinos there. The casino, run by an executive who cut his teeth in Atlantic City casinos then owned by Donald Trump, enlisted a slate of luminary overseers including former leaders of both the Republican and Democratic national parties in the U.S.

Just to highlight:

"Its board members include James Woolsey, who ran the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in the early 1990s and was among national-security advisers to Trump’s presidential campaign. Former FBI director Louis Freeh and Ed Rendell, a former Pennsylvania governor and Democratic National Committee chairman, sit on an advisory committee, as does Haley Barbour, the ex-Mississippi governor and Republican National Committee chairman who’s now a prominent lobbyist."

and

In 2015, the company opened Best Sunshine Live in a mall between a laundromat and a cellphone shop. From its sleepy storefront, Best Sunshine Live has posted per-table revenues far greater than those at the largest resorts in Macau, Asia’s gambling capital.

Mystery revealed. She's an Obama plant working under the sector FBI chief who's also an Obama plant, and as weeds do they're going after Trumps friends to... I don't even know what their strategy is... to be petty? This probably isn't even bothering the guy.

Even if they planted evidence it wouldn't be actionable because they didn't have a court order for the search. In fact Imperial Pacific is likely to sue the govt and come out of it millions richer, so these Obama retards aren't really accomplishing anything other than making a friend of Trump slightly richer.

In fact this was so bleeding retarded that I expect in a few months Bloomberg will be claiming that Trump is intentionally siccing the FBI on his friends without warrants, just so they can rake in cash from lawsuits against the agency.

This is a constant motif when it comes to leftists. They want to help the poor, but through incompetence only impoverish them even more. They want to help the minorities, but through incompetence destroy their families/culture.

>The reduction represents the largest cut to military expenditure in the country since the early 1990s.

>The reduction follows an extended period of large increases to Russian defence spending with growth having achieved an average rate of 19.8% a year since 2011 in nominal terms. Despite the cut, the 2017 budget will remain about 14.4% higher than the level of defence spending seen in 2014 in nominal terms.

Moscow – Russia is the world’s eighth largest economy, and while it claims it is not isolated, and has made great inroads doing business with countries in Asia in the Middle East while the West has given it the cold shoulder, it is eager to engage with the world’s most famous dealmaker of the moment, President Donald Trump.

There has been a healthy dose of Trumpmania here in Moscow, as people celebrate the installation of the 45th President of the United States, who has famously said, he would like to get along with Russia. But it is not blind euphoria.

“There’s a realistic mood—some are excited, some are indifferent. But at least they are willing to listen to the Russian story,” said Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund. “We don’t expect pro-Russian decisions. We understand that Trump will focus only on the US agenda, defending U.S. interests.”

Stanford and Harvard educated Dmitriev, a Kiev native who runs the Russian sovereign wealth fund that holds ten billion dollars in reserved capital under management, has hopes that sanctions against Russian will be dropped by Trump. He said,

“The fact is that sanctions did not work, in that they didn’t change Russian policy in any way. Secondly, they united Russians around President Putin whose popularity throughout the sanctions time actually increased dramatically.”

Despite the turmoil Russia has lived in the past several years, between the dramatic fall in oil prices and the tumble of its currency, Dmitriev extols the health of his country’s economy. He points out the stock market grew fifty percent last year and he projects the two percent growth in Russia next year. He says his fund, which invests in projects in Russia and around the world, with various partners, is solid.

“My fund has produced positive returns in dollars for our partners, which is important given the Ruble got reduced by almost half, so we have been making investments so great that they produce positive returns in dollars to all our partners.”

>That is GDP per capita, there are multiple ways China fakes GDP.
So does every other major market player - after all it is arguably a primary index in the economy. Most of GDP of developed countries come from "intellectual property" and things like digital services, financial instruments, and so on and so forth, where people profit while not producing anything useful at all. I'm not saying that it is somewhat reprehensible in general, but you have to agree that primary problem comes from the debt - which itself is the virtualization of economy.

Modern economy troubles come from general inability to develop trade and production anywhere further - it requires rich people to risk and sacrifice something to invest into the opportunities never considered before. You need to search for alternatives, take a different views, consider other points of interest, including developing countries, too. But rich people don't want any alternatives, they don't want want to lose anything and don't want anyone to step in their place, so they do polar opposite. They oppress, sanction, threaten and falsifying - they are digging their own grave with their own hands.

Lifting sanctions in some selective manner, trying to close itself from the problems of the world, or trying to give corporations even more power isn't going to fix anything of that. Soon enough you will discover that everything you know is fictional, and the economy is operated by irrelevant values, and you are living a virtual life without any purpose. And that is going to be the end of it.

I don't know what happened to your world since 30 years ago. I'm an avid fan of 80-s cyberpunk that isn't too popular where I live because of some things like language barrier, values dissonance, etc. But I don't understand where all this innovative spirit is gone since then, replaced by all this brooding of possible futures that will happen because of some liberal market magic. I don't feel it anywhere any more.

Americans refuse to work in fields, even for $20/hour.
http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-ice-immigration-crackdown-arresting-migrant-farmworkers-2017-3
>Trump's promises to crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally and ICE's stepped-up enforcement efforts since his election have sent chills through the US agriculture industry. Industry-wide, 16% of workers are undocumented, while undocumented immigrants make up 70% of all fieldworkers — the vast majority of them Mexican.

>In New York state, 1,080 farms are at risk of shrinking significantly or failing because of enhanced immigration enforcement in the state.

>Intensified enforcement has also exacerbated a labor shortage already plaguing the industry in the state.

>"If we don't have the ability to have workers on our farms, farms can't survive," Farm Bureau spokesman Steve Ammerman told Crain's.

http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-fi-farms-immigration/
>Today, farmworkers in the state earn about $30,000 a year if they work full time — about half the overall average pay in California. Most work fewer hours.

>Some farmers are even giving laborers benefits normally reserved for white-collar professionals, like 401(k) plans, health insurance, subsidized housing and profit-sharing bonuses. Full-timers at Silverado Farming, for example, get most of those sweeteners, plus 10 paid vacation days, eight paid holidays, and can earn their hourly rate to take English classes.

$2.50 an hour is what they get in mexico, the farms aren't in mexico.

Illegals working on American farms get $12/hr which is exactly how much native born American pickers get to take home after taxes ($14-15 before taxes).

By the way average illegal immigrant "handyman" wage is something like $15/hr, which is the same amount that native born American handymen get to take home after taxes (18 before taxes).

Why do people keep thinking illegals are cheap labor? They aren't even in the lowest tax bracket yet they pay no taxes, they directly compete with low skilled American labor, this is why illegal immigration is bad for Americans in the first place!

Especially poor Americans in the lowest tax bracket that STILL pay taxes, while they get to see illegal immigrants getting paid more and yet paying no taxes around them.

Oh and not to mention that illegal immigrants get MORE access to social services, not less, than our own poor.

Illegals are also immune from law. They can be arrested committing rape, go to jail, and be on the streets in 24 hours with no other consequences.

And this is precisely why it's a bad idea to import even more low-skilled workers from Latin America; it just magnifies the problem of people having trouble finding work as these sectors of the economy move toward increasing automation. Too bad so many of our elites and business/farm owners are greedy bastards obsessed with short-term profit above all else.

Isn't that closer to 0.5% or am I bad at math?

What evidence do you have for saying that document is still on DTIC (which is a pretty vanilla repository for defense documents) only through the efforts of disgruntled employees? The damn thing literally says "approved for public release, distribution unlimited".

If they had offered F-22 exports to select countries this could have been avoided.

Britain should have gone with Navalised Typhoons and done a JSF based on gen 4.5 tech.

Indian research determined that the Typhoon would have been "completely uncompetitive" for naval operations due to the added weight from the needed modifications.

Of course the RN could have just built real flatdecks in the first place and then this wouldn't have been a issue.

Turns out Trump is also a suffocation fetishist in addition to pissing.

>All F-18 models, including the Super Hornet that Trump has championed, have shown steady annual increases in what the Navy calls “physiological episodes,” according to service testimony obtained by Bloomberg News. What’s more, the data show that incidents of oxygen deprivation and cabin decompression have escalated in the last year, while service officials work to determine the root cause of the in-flight problems.

>Trump’s promotion of the Super Hornet began in December, when the president-elect said in a Twitter posting, “Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!” Translating Trump’s request into action, Defense Secretary James Mattis commissioned a review of improvements that would “provide a competitive, cost effective, fighter aircraft alternative” to the F-35C, the Navy version of Lockheed Martin Corp.’s Joint Strike Fighter.

>“Since May 1, 2010, all models” of the F-18 “show steady, yearly increases in the number of physiological episodes,” according to a staff memo prepared in advance of a hearing Tuesday of a House Armed Services subcommittee. Navy officials testifying before the committee called the problem the “No.1 safety issue.”

Also back in December a E/A-18 had the opposite issue: The oxygen system over-pressurized the aircraft so quickly the canopy shattered and the crew's lungs collapsed.
