U.S. amphibious group patrols Arabian Sea as Iran tensions simmerAt a thumbs-up sign from a sailor, a U.S. Harrier fighter jet takes off from the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer in the Arabian Sea as an oil tanker passes, a nautical mile away. The patrol is "standard" but the situation - growing tension between the United States and Iran - is not. "We want to make sure that we assure allies in the region and to ensure freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce," says Colonel Fridrik Fridrikson, commanding officer of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit.


Turkey calls on US to reverse decision on F-35 exclusion

Turkey calls on US to reverse decision on F-35 exclusionThe U.S. decision to exclude Turkey from an American-led fighter jet program goes against the "spirit of alliance," the Turkish government said Thursday, and called on its NATO ally to reverse the decision. In a major break with a longtime ally, U.S. President Donald Trump's administration on Wednesday said Turkey is being kicked out of the F-35 program because it is buying the Russian S-400 air defense system. In a statement, Turkey's Foreign Ministry rejected that assertion.

Argentina still waiting for 1994 Jewish center bombing justiceArgentina marks the 25th anniversary of the bomb attack on a Jewish center that left 85 people dead with a day of mourning on Thursday, but the relatives of victims are still waiting for justice. "This attack, even if there was a large anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic component -- of course -- was an attack on Argentina and Argentine society," said Weinstein, who worked at the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA), where the attack was carried out. A truck loaded with explosives was driven into the AMIA center in a densely populated central area of Buenos Aires, also leaving 300 people wounded.

Storm Area 51: US Air Force warns alien-hunters against breaking into top-secret base
Thu, 18 Jul 2019 03:37:00 -0400

Storm Area 51: US Air Force warns alien-hunters against breaking into top-secret baseThe US Air Force has urged people not to invade Area 51 in search of aliens.Anyone attempting to do so will have to deal with highly developed defence measures, the military has said.A widespread internet joke – joined by more than a million people – suggests that people attempt to run into the Area 51 base on 20 September. If enough people do so, then at least some will be able to get through and storm the base, the Facebook group suggests.“They can’t stop all of us” it says. ”Let’s see them aliens.”Officials say they will not discuss the details of the security measures that are built to keep people out of the base. But they stressed that they are powerful and suggested soldiers are trained for this kind of situation.The range provides “flexible, realistic and multidimensional battlespace” for testing and “advanced training in support of US national interests”, it said.Nellis Air Force Base said in a statement that officials are aware of the Facebook posting and “any attempt to illegally access the area is highly discouraged”.After decades of government officials refusing to acknowledge Area 51, the CIA released declassified documents in 2013 referring to the 8,000-square mile installation by name and locating it on a map near the dry Groom Lake bed.The base has been a testing ground for a host of top-secret aircraft, including the U-2 in the 1950s and later the B-2 stealth bomber.Secrecy surrounding the site has fuelled conspiracy theories among UFO enthusiasts and sprouted a small, alien-themed tourist industry in surrounding desert communities, including cafes, a motel and even a brothel.Additional reporting by agencies


Mumbai attack 'mastermind' arrested as Imran Khan prepares to meet Donald Trump
Wed, 17 Jul 2019 12:24:36 -0400

Mumbai attack 'mastermind' arrested as Imran Khan prepares to meet Donald TrumpDonald Trump has welcomed the arrest of a cleric accused of masterminding the Mumbai attacks, but faced mockery for saying it took years to find the suspect, when he is notorious for living openly in Pakistan. Hafiz Saeed was held on suspicion of terrorist financing offences just days before Mr Trump is due to welcome Pakistan's prime minister, Imran Khan, to the White House. The founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group has a $10m US bounty on his head for his alleged role behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people. Saeed has lived openly in Pakistan despite pressure for Islamabad to bring him to justice, and the issue has helped poison relations with Washington and Delhi. While the 69-year-old has spent time under house arrest, he has never been charged or tried. India officials expressed scepticism that he would face justice now, suggesting the arrest had been made to appease America ahead of Mr Khan's visit to reset acrimonious relations. After a ten year search, the so-called “mastermind” of the Mumbai Terror attacks has been arrested in Pakistan. Great pressure has been exerted over the last two years to find him!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 17, 2019 "We want real action, not these kinds of steps that are reversible,” an Indian official told Reuters. “One court orders his arrest, another frees him." He went on: “We have seen this before. After the visit is over, things are usually back to what they were before." Mr Trump welcomed the arrest. He said: “After a 10-year search, the so-called 'mastermind' of the Mumbai Terror attacks has been arrested in Pakistan. Great pressure has been exerted over the last two years to find him!” Husain Haqqani, a former Pakistani ambassador to Washington said: “Finding him was never an issue. He operated freely and was highly visible. He has been arrested and released many times over.” Nadim Awan, Saeed's spokesman, denounced the arrest and said the cleric had left Lashkar-e-Taiba in 2001, shortly before its was banned. Mr Awan said they would challenge Saeed's arrest before a higher court Pakistan has for decades groomed and harboured militant groups to exert influence on neighbours. It's refusal to stop has angered the international community, but previous crackdowns on jihadists have often been viewed as ineffective or insincere.

Cannonball highlights how close Napoleon came to victory at WaterlooA cannonball discovered this week by archaeologists provides a further indication of how close Napoleon Bonaparte came to winning the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The 3 kilogramme (6-pound), rusty cannonball was found on Monday near the site of a field hospital about 600 metres behind Anglo-Allied lines on the battlefield in Belgium. Tony Pollard, the head archaeologist at the site, told Reuters Television he believed it was fired by the French army, another sign of near Napoleon's troops came to victory in the battle described by the Duke of Wellington as a close-run thing.
