Why is Russia Probing Americas Air Defenses?

Russian fighters intercepted by US near Alaska

Two Russian fighters entered a US “air defense identification zone” two days ago and were intercepted by American F-22 jets near Alaska, military officers said.

The incursion on Wednesday was followed by a second incident on Thursday involving two Russian long-range bombers, which flew into Canada’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) and were intercepted by two Canadian F-18 jets, officers said.

In both cases the Russian aircraft flew out of the area without incident.

The Russian warplanes “never entered US sovereign air space” or Canadian air space, said Major Jamie Humphries, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

In Wednesday’s encounter near Alaska, the Russian fighters were accompanied by two refueling tankers and two long-range bombers, he said.

Although Russian aircraft have entered the zone previously it was “the first time in a long time” that fighter jets passed through the area, said a US defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

To safeguard a country’s air space, air defense identification zones extend beyond territorial air space and are designed as a buffer to give a government more time to respond to potentially hostile aircraft. But the zones do not fall under international treaties and are not regulated under international law.

The Russian aircraft flights coincided with a visit by Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko to Washington, where he made an impassioned address Thursday before a joint session of the US Congress, denouncing Russia’s military intervention in his country.

But Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said there was no indication of a link between Poroshenko’s visit to Washington and the air incidents.

“We’ve faced these kinds of incidents before. We take them very, very seriously. And we routinely intercept them,” Kirby told CNN.

“We’ll make our intentions known to Russia as we always do and we’ll certainly discuss our concerns with them at the appropriate time and in the appropriate venue.”

It was unclear if the Russian aircraft were in the area due to exercises announced by Moscow in far-eastern regions, including the off-shore naval training grounds of the Kamchatka region.

The Vostok-2014 exercise started on Friday and was scheduled to last through September 25 and included 100,000 troops and 120 aircraft, according to the Russian defense ministry.

In Wednesday’s encounter near Alaska, the Russian aircraft veered into the air defense zone at about 7 pm local time (0200 GMT). In Thursday’s episode near Canada, the Russian bombers flew into the area at about 1:30 am local time (0830 GMT).

This was just one of many incursions in recent months of Russia probing Americas Air Defenses. 

China appears to be doing the same thing in the Pacific as the Chinese Navy probes the American Fleets.

ISIL IS NOT ISLAMIC? -OR- IS ISIS Really ISIL or ISISn’t It?

Strong reaction to Obama statement: ‘ISIL is not Islamic’

By Ashley Killough, CNN

(CNN) — President Barack Obama was trying to make a broader point when he uttered “ISIL is not Islamic,” but the four-word phrase could still come back to haunt him.

Critics on Twitter quickly fired off on the President for making the assertion, with many noting that ISIL in fact stands for the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.” (CNN refers to the group by the acronym ISIS in its news reports. The group recently started calling itself the Islamic State).

In full context, here’s what Obama said in his prime-time speech Wednesday night:

“ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state; it was formerly al Qaeda’s affiliate in Iraq and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government nor by the people it subjugates.”

“ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple, and it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

Glenn Beck Knows Why Obama Prefers ‘ISIL’ to ‘ISIS’

During his debut as moderator of Meet the Press last Sunday, Chuck Todd attempted to explain why President Barack Obama prefers to term “ISIL” over “ISIS” to describe the terrorist network that the U.S. may or may not be at war with currently.

In Todd’s view, calling the group “ISIL,” or the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, avoids the direct reference to Syria in “ISIS.” And since the Obama administration had mostly tried to keep the idea of fighting the group in Syria off the table, they wanted to keep that specific reminder out of the group’s name. With the president’s speech to the nation last week, that inclination may have shifted, but either way, at this point the administration is committed to the term “ISIL.”

But Todd is not the only commentator trying to figure out why Obama says “ISIL” while the media tends to prefer “ISIS.” Fox News’ Harris Faulkner recently said she believed the president is “tipping his hat” to the group by using an “L” instead of an “S.” “Levant is a bigger territory,” she said on Outnumbered. “That’s why they want to embrace that name and it includes many, many more countries than just Syria.”

That theory is closer to the one Glenn Beck espoused in his “daily briefing” with TheBlaze staff Monday, though, unsurprisingly, his ideas are a bit more convoluted.

Beck noticed that technically, “the Levant” includes Israel, along with Lebanon and Jordan. “We actually should be flipped,” he said. “I should be saying it’s ‘ISIL’ and the president should saying it’s ‘ISIS,’” because in Beck’s view, the president wants to minimize the threat while he believes including the Levant better represents the group’s true aims. So, does that mean Beck actually agrees with Obama on this one? Not quite.

Beck accepts that the group should be called “ISIL” and not “ISIS,” but he thinks it should be called “ISIL” as a “warning,” which is apparently not what President Obama is doing.

When Obama uses the term “ISIL,” Beck sees it as a “slap in the face” to Israel. For the president to say that it’s “ISIL” and not “ISIS” and not at the same time “double down” on Israel and warn that the group is “taking over the Holy Land” is somehow disingenuous. “There is no more Israel if it’s ISIL,” Beck declared, ominously.

“So if I’m ISIS, and I hear the president say ‘you’re really ISIL’ and ‘I’m kind of wishy-washy on that whole Israel thing,’ you’re on my side,” Beck concluded. “For him to say ‘ISIL’ is sending a message overseas to them: ‘I know who you are. I’m not doing anything, I’m not doing anything.’”

Get all that? Beck agrees that the group, which calls itself simply “the Islamic State,” should be called “ISIL,” but not for the reasons Obama is using. And somehow, escalating missile strikes against the group in Iraq and possibly now Syria is the same as “not doing anything” because he uses an “L” instead of an “S.”

The truest explanation for why President Obama says “ISIL” instead of “ISIS”? He and his team started using it at one point and have stuck with it long enough that it would be awkward (and somehow perceived as weak) if he started saying “ISIS” now.

It’s kind of like how Obama insisted on using the “Affordable Care Act” before finally giving in and accepting that everyone was going to call it “Obamacare” no matter what he did. And we’ve all seen how well that turned out.

Iraq is now Obama’s War!

bush2007_20140911_105150

You own it now Barack

A prophetic warning from then-President George W. Bush before he left office about what would happen if the U.S. withdrew troops from Iraq too soon is getting new attention in light of the Islamic State’s gains, as each of his predictions appears to be coming true.

Bush, as discussed on “The Kelly File,” made the remarks  (Video) in the White House briefing room on July 12, 2007, as he argued against those who sought an immediate troop withdrawal.  

“To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States,” Bush cautioned.

He then ticked off a string of predictions about what would happen if the U.S. left too early.

“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaeda.

“It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.

“It would mean we allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.  

“It would mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.”

Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen says all these predictions have come true.

“Every single thing that President Bush said there in that statement is happening today,” he told Fox News.

To Bush’s first warning, the Islamic State terror group is effectively the successor to Al Qaeda in Iraq – and they’ve overrun several major cities in Iraq’s north while claiming broad swaths of territory in Syria. Further, the group has been behind mass killings of Iraqi civilians as well as the recent execution by beheading of two American journalists.

The Obama administration has warned that the group’s violence threatens to approach genocide levels.

Though President Obama says combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, American troops are nevertheless returning in some capacity. The president on Wednesday announced an expanded airstrike campaign against the group in Iraq and Syria, and is sending hundreds more U.S. military personnel into Iraq.

Some lawmakers and analysts say this could have been avoided if the Obama administration had left a residual force in Iraq, or at least had responded sooner to ISIS’ gains in northern Iraq over the past year.

Bush, before he left office, signed an agreement setting the stage for U.S. troops to withdraw by December 2011.

Obama, though, was urged by military advisers to keep thousands of service members after that deadline to help the shaky Iraqi government. But when Washington and Baghdad were unable to reach a renewed agreement governing the presence of U.S. forces in the country, the Obama administration withdrew virtually all troops at the end of 2011.

“We needed to leave a stabilizing force behind, and we didn’t.  And of course, we know the rest is history,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Fox News.

Political Correctness

by AFVet

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

Over the last six years, politically correct terms have been rammed down our throats incessantly.

The president has refused to address ISIS as the terrorist Islamic barbaric organization it is, because in his mind that may be politically incorrect.

FBI manuals have been revised to eliminate any reference to Islam.

In a response to a reporter in Wales, during a press conference, he stated that it will be very hard to ‘contain them now given the territory that they have accumulated’.

This from a president that was given information one year ago that ISIS was on the march.

So, instead of stopping them from invading Iraq, he dithered.

Thousands of innocent people have been killed in very revolting manners by primitive Islamic barbarians that we had the capability to stop.

Thousands have escaped only to become refugees.

They have no Air Force or Navy,…just ground based weapons that could have been destroyed early on in their campaign to establish an Islamic caliphate and kill anyone that refuses to accept Sharia law and it’s tenants.

It is a shame that we have been harnessed with a president that is incapable of making decisions in a timely manner.

A president that was elected by people that had no idea of whom they were electing and for the most part didn’t really care.

A president that does not have the experience to surround himself with advisers that see what is coming on the horizon, instead they have the tendency to use endless chatter against people that are more than happy to die for Allah.

Perhaps this is God’s way of giving US a slap on the hand, but, in the next two years, this United States of America will face one of the greatest tests we have ever faced.

Have faith America, we outnumber them and we need to show them that in November.

America’s Biggest Terrorism Threat = Barack Obama

Glenn Beck predicted this while Obama ignored the warning

Well Mr. President, a fine mess you’ve gotten us in to this time. 

Will you ever learn or is that beyond the ability of a Community Organizer?

America has gone from bad to worse under your feeble socialistic agenda and now the world has become a cup of trembling because of your narrow view of what is happening and what should have been done in the Middle East.

140612143116-cnnx-iraq-map-new-story-body

You seem to think the world is wrong and you are right in spite of the glaring facts in front of you.

Perhaps you would have been better off had you listened to Glenn Beck’s warnings on the Middle East instead of trying to make him out to be a right wing loon. 

Glenn Beck has proven himself to be so very right, and you, have proven yourself to be so very wrong time and again.

In 2008, Joe Biden said it best in the debates when he said: 

Barack Obama is not qualified to be president.

biden_obama_not_qualified

It appears you have proven Joe Biden to be correct as America slides deeper into decline under your leadership.

You Mr. President have been proven wrong about Egypt, Libya, Iran, Syria, Iraq  and the newest threat, ISIS whom you referred to as a…

JV Terrorist Group.

This is the price that is being paid for your Lethal Ineptitude Mr. President

America’s Point of No Return…November 2014

1454873_513239662140166_7105046639957626549_n

All the eloquent speeches from the Anointed One will not improve our economy nor, is it in any way shape or form, going to create jobs. We now have a President that is so full of himself that America is suffering another financial setback that all the kings men and all the kings czars cannot put back together again.

The good news is that America is waking up and come November we will put real American Patriots in the seats now filled with Corrupted and stagnant career politicians who have forgotten the Power of We the People. These are people who have become absolutely Corrupted and morally challenged in their day-to-day lives.

We the People have vowed to take back our Country from these so-called Progressive Socialists who have no place here in our Republic. We will not, as a Free People, ever surrender to Socialism, Marxism, nor Communism and the sooner the Progressive Elitists get that through their thick skulls, the better off and safer this world will be.

Mr. President, do not underestimate what the American People will fight for. If you do, you will find yourself on the losing side of history. Americans are now busy resetting the course of American History and yes we are even going to correct our school books so that we have an inclusive, complete, and accurate documenting of American History and not some super altered Progressive evolution of our minds. The truth is out there now and Americans are flocking to it in record numbers to reinforce our resolve to end once and for all the Progressive Movement in the United States of America.

We are united like never before and we will not go silently into the night Mr. President.

My Enlightening Encounter at the County Fair

2010839-portrait-of-the-elderly-woman-on-the-park-bench

Last Year I went to the County Fair with my oldest son and his family to enjoy a day watching the grand children’s wide eyed excitement of the wonders to be seen at a County Fair.  After a few hours of walking the grounds and taking in the sights and sounds of this wonderful event I decided to take a break on a park bench where I sat next to a senior lady who seemed to have the same idea as me.

What happened next will remain etched in my mind for the rest of my days.

Shortly after taking a seat at the opposite end of the park bench this this soft spoken lady turned to me and said, I enjoy just sitting here people watching these days but I can’t help but notice very few are smiling as they walk by.  She then asked if I have noticed the same thing to which I replied, yes I do, I see it also.  She then continued on to say it is as if they know something very bad is about to happen and they are not quite sure what. Again I replied, I see it too.

After a short pause she turned to me and said the America you and I once knew is lost and a terrible time is about to befall us all. 

These people walking by can feel it but you and I have lived long enough to know what is happening.  She then asked, are you a Christian?  I replied that I was and that I too know what is about to happen.  She smiled softly and went on to say it is too late to turn back the hands of time. 

The American people have fallen for a great deception and walk about refusing to believe that a great evil has taken hold of our country.

Somewhat taken back by this whole conversation I could not help but ask what she was planning to do about it.  She simply replied that she had thought about becoming a ‘Prepper’ but soon realized that in today’s age of technology there was no longer any way to escape the government scrutiny of our lives. 

She then went on to tell me a short story about an experience she had using her lap top. She stated that her lap top had a built in camera on it that she never used and how one day when she stepped away from her lap top for a short while she returned to find a picture of herself on the screen that was taken while working on her lap top.  Her computer had been locked and a message read that she had downloaded sensitive materials and that her computer has been seized until she contacted the government agency at the number provided. As it turned out it was a hacker who froze her computer and demanded a  payment of $250.00 to release her computer.  She contacted the manufacturer of her computer and they were able to unfreeze her computer for a small charge after which she immediately taped over the camera lens on her computer. 

What concerned her the most about this episode was the thought that if a hacker could do this then imagine what our government could do.

The Lord’s return is upon us my friend she said with a smile of relief and I pray that you and your loved ones are ready.  I said that we were and wished the same upon her and her family.  She replied that they were and yet grieved for all those who have been so deceived by a society that has turned their backs on God for those earthly pleasures that will soon be gone.  With that she rose up, turned and bid me farewell.  

There was so much more to this conversation that I would have filled up pages upon pages with her insights. I walked away from that conversation knowing that we are not alone in what we are all feeling these days.

531143349772576880_ZK4TpuzX_c

It is not often in this life when we cross paths with like minded individuals but for me this encounter was Heaven sent and I will remember this conversation until that Glorious day when Jesus returns  in all of His Glory.
