As Russia finishes its first major airbase in Syria with more than two dozen warplanes and new satellite imagery shows two more bases in the works, the Pentagon said Tuesday that Secretary of Defense Ash Carter does not plan to discuss deconflicting U.S. and coalition aircraft there without more Russian dialogue on political alternatives.
But the former commander of U.S. troops in Iraq and later Afghanistan also included an interesting statement that seemed to corroborate what Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, head of Central Command, recently said regarding American commandos being on the ground in Syria.

Migrants disguising themselves as Syrians to enter Europe ~ link ~ The globalists and Zionists HAVE NOT CHANGED their intent to take the world into World War III. Remember Albert Pike (the former Confederate US Civil War general and leading satanist) who wrote a famous letter, before World War I, describing how they would create three global wars to establish their demonic New World Order. He described WWI and WWII with amazing predictive skills and said that WWIII would be fought between Christians and Muslims!!! We are being set up for this NOW. Stirling
Moving among the tens of thousands of Syrian war refugees passing through the train stations of Europe are many who are neither Syrian nor refugees, but hoping to blend into the mass migration and find a back door to the West.
Obama's ISIS War Czar is stepping down ~ link ~ Sometimes people just get a case of morality and can't take it anymore!!! Stirling
President Barack Obama is about to lose the man he hand-picked to build the war effort against the Islamic State. Retired General John Allen will be stepping down as envoy to the global coalition this fall, and the White House is searching for a replacement to be the face of America’s flailing effort to destroy the jihadist group in Syria and Iraq.
US officials: The F-35 will outmatch all aircraft in development ~ link ~ The F-35 is a MEGA EXPENSIVE plane that is designed to operate with data feeds from AWACS, satellites, and other sources to target and destroy enemy aircraft and other targets. It depends on this data stream to do its job. If you jam or otherwise take down the feed, what you have left is a fighter that cannot defeat a Vietnam War era fighter!!! We know from history that 'the enemy gets a vote' and that things that can go wrong in war usually do go wrong!!! The F-22 and the F-35 are examples of the growing level of corruption in the Military Industrial Complex and in Washington, D.C. (District of Crooks). We no longer can roll out quality warbirds but can produce super-expensive planes that are gold-plated junk!!! We are screwed!!! This earns the "US officials" the 'dreaded' Five BS Flag award.

The command announced last week that 30 B-52Hs, all veterans of the Cold War, would be modified as conventional heavy bombers, in line with verifiable treaty standards.
According to a 17 September statement, the first aircraft to shed its nuclear capabilities was tail number 61-1021 of Air Force Reserve Command’s 307th Bomb Wing at Barksdale AFB, Louisiana. The conversions should be complete by early 2017, the air force says, and interestingly the service also intends to revive a dozen non-operational B-52H aircraft in storage at the boneyard in Arizona.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is reported to be planning a purchase of a dozen Su-30 fighters, along with equipment from China. The Venezuelan Air Force operates 23 Su-30MK2 multirole fighters, following a crash of one of these last week. Speaking at a ceremony to mark the loss, Maduro stated that he would talk with Vladimir Putin to acquire a replacement for the lost Su-30 as well as the twelve new fighters. The aircraft in service were procured from Russia as part of a $3 billion arms sale, following a refusal by then-President George Bush to sell replacement parts for the country’s fleet of F-16s.
