Russia, US and France launch nuclear-capable missiles HOURS APART
(Express) – Russia, the United States and France have test-launched nuclear-capable missiles within hours of one another as fears rise of a return to a Cold War-era arms race amid the abandonment of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. RUSSIA, the United States and France have test-launched nuclear-capable missiles within hours of one another as fears rise of a return to a Cold War-era arms race amid
the abandonment of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. None of the tests were thought to be equipped with nuclear warheads and were likely scheduled ahead of the INF treaty breakdown. In a press release, the French Ministry of Defense said the demonstration of the ASMP was “successful”. The weapon was fired at a testing center of the DGA Essays de missiles located near Biscarrosse, southwestern France.

Russia warns US of ‘NEW ERA’ after Trump scraps INF nuclear treaty

Russia warns US of ‘NEW ERA’ after Trump scraps INF nuclear treaty
(Express) – Moscow issued its latest warning amid fears the US President’s decision would bring the world closer to a Cold War and allow a build-up of intermediate-range nuclear weapons on their Eastern flank. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said: ”I don’t think we’re talking about the development of a Cold War. “A new era has begun.” Alarm spread through Europe after the announcement on Friday

that Donald Trump had abandoned the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. Trump administration officials cited Russia’s noncompliance with the treaty as the reason for leaving the deal, in a move which threatens to undermine peace and stability between Russia and the US. The President said the nuclear weapons accord, struck between the US and the Soviet Union in 1987, had been violated by Moscow because of the development of a new missile.

China just tested the world’s most powerful naval gun, and US intelligence says it will be ready for warfare by 2025

China just tested the world’s most powerful naval gun, and US intelligence says it will be ready for warfare by 2025
(CNBC) – China tested the world’s most powerful naval gun earlier this month, and it is expected to be ready for warfare by 2025, according to people with direct knowledge of a U.S. intelligence report. China’s railgun was first seen in 2011 and underwent testing in 2014, according to the people, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity. Between 2015 and 2017, the weapon was calibrated to strike at extended ranges, increasing its lethality. By December 2017, the weapon was successfully mounted on a warship and began at-sea testing, a feat no other nation has accomplished.

The Chinese are expected to complete at-sea testing by 2023. The development comes at a moment when tensions between China and the U.S. are already high, underscored by crucial trade talks that were scheduled to move to Washington on Wednesday. Railguns use electromagnetic energy instead of gunpowder to propel rounds, and China’s is capable of striking a target 124 miles away at speeds of up to 1.6 miles per second, according to the people who have knowledge of the intelligence report.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel and Iran Edging Dangerously Close to State of All-Out War
Jan 22, 2019 01:50 pm
RUMORS OF WAR: Israel and Iran Edging Dangerously Close to State of All-Out War
(Charisma) – Israel and Iran are edging dangerously close to a state of all-out war. On Sunday night, Israeli forces rained missiles down on Iranian forces based in the Damascus area “for nearly an hour.” According to the IDF, this was a response to “dozens” of missiles that were fired by Iranian forces in Syria toward targets in Israel earlier that day. The Israelis were able to intercept the Iranian missiles, but if any of them had gotten through they could have caused a tremendous amount of damage. Some of the missiles that Israel fired at the Iranians were reportedly intercepted, but quite a few of them did hit

their intended targets. If the violence continues to escalate, we could potentially soon be talking about an all-out war between Israel and Iran in which both sides use their weapons of mass destruction. The missile strikes against Iranian targets in Damascus made headlines all over the globe. According to Syrian state media, there were “consecutive waves of guided missiles.” Syrian state media cited a Syrian military source as saying Israel launched an “intense attack through consecutive waves of guided missiles,” but that Syrian air defenses destroyed most of the “hostile targets.”

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran warns it’s ready to ‘Eliminate Israel from Earth,’

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran warns it’s ready to ‘Eliminate Israel from Earth,’
(RT News) – The head of Iran’s air force has warned that Tehran is ready to “confront” and “eliminate” Israel. His fighting words come after Israel launched air raids on alleged Iranian targets inside Syria, killing 4 Syrian soldiers. Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh, the commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF), issued the provocative statement to the Young Journalist Club news agency, according Iranian media.

Israel is believed to have fired dozens of missiles and guided bombs at targets inside Syria over the last 48 hours, purportedly targeting Iranian forces stationed in the country. The strikes have killed four Syrian soldiers and left six others injured, the Russian Defense Ministry has said, as well as causing damage to Damascus International Airport. The ministry claims that Syrian forces have intercepted 30 Israeli missiles over the past 48 hours.

A Tu-22M3 supersonic strategic bomber has crashed in Russia’s north-west while trying to make a landing during a sudden snowstorm. Two crew members died in the incident while two others were injured.
The bomber got into trouble after conducting a training exercise, the Russian defense ministry reported. It attempted to make a landing at an air base near the city of Olenegorsk in Russia’s Murmansk region.

The aircraft was destroyed by the impact. Two crew members died on the spot while two others survived and were taken to a hospital for treatment, the ministry said.

The storm, which affected the aircraft, is of a rare kind that only happens in Arctic areas. It is almost impossible to predict and develops very rapidly, turning a calm day into a fierce and dangerous blizzard.

The Tupolev Tu-22M3 is a supersonic long-range bomber, which can carry nuclear air-to-surface missile. The model has been operational since the late 1980s. The aircraft that crashed in the Murmansk region had no weapons on board, according to the ministry statement.

The air base near Olenegorsk is operated by the long-range command of the Russian Air Forces and is one of several where Tu-22M3s are deployed.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel may need to invade Iran to stop its entrenchment in Syria …

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel may need to invade Iran to stop its entrenchment in Syria …
(JP) – Israel needs to prepare for the possibility that its battle to keep Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria may have to be expanded to Lebanon or to Iran directly. That is one of the recommendations that appeared in the Institute for National Security Studies Strategic Assessment for Israel 2018-2019, which was released and rolled out by the Tel Aviv-based think tank at a ceremony at the President’s Residence on Wednesday.

“Israel maintains a very strong basic deterrent against security challenges that are below the threshold of war,” according to the report. “At the same time, most of the fronts facing Israel are very volatile: Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. In all three, despite the existence of mutual deterrence between the sides, there is a potential for escalation toward a broad confrontation and a general war, more than one front at a time.” READ MORE https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Israel-may-need-to-invade-Iran-says-strategic-report-577590

A powerful blast has hit the northern Syrian city of Manbij, which was recently threatened by Turkey over its Kurdish control. Several people were killed, with local sources claiming Kurdish-allied US soldiers were among the dead.
The blast happened near a restaurant and market. Preliminary reports say at least six people were killed and 19 others injured by the explosion. Various sources on the ground claim that between two and five US soldiers are among the casualties, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Footage from Manbij obtained by RT’s video agency Ruptly shows emergency vehicles and several US troops, presumably responding to the blast.

Ruptly’s contributor on the ground said the US military ramped up security inside the city following the attack and put the city hospital, where victims have been transported, on lockdown.
Photos and videos taken at the scene show a damaged building with broken windows and what appear to be blood stains on a column and several damaged cars.

Bibi threatens Iran with more after attacking Iranian targets
By Leah Rosenberg -  January 16, 2019 356 0
https://israelunwired.com/bibi-threatens-iran-with-more-after-attacking-iranian-targets/
There is no more important threat to Israel than Iran. But most of the threats from Iran are via what Bibi Netanyahu calls Iran’s proxies. This refers to both the Hizbullah in Israel’s north and Hamas in Israel’s south.

Tactical or Strategic Move
The question that is central about the move of the United States to remove it’s forces from Syria is whether or not it was tactical or strategic. Secretary of State Pompeo declared that it was tactical. But that the basic concept of defeating and stopping ISIS is still a top priority for the Trump administration. I think Bibi Netanyahu is OK with this and accepts the tactical move on one condition – that it is done gradually.

In the Middle East, any sweeping move can be interpreted very easily as a defeat. If the Iranians or ISIS perceive the United States as the loser in the region, it could lead to more offensive moves on their part.

Bibi – the Great Strategist
The way that Bibi Netanyahu handled Barack Obama was masterful. He kept his eye on the main issue – Iran. He gave in to Obama on some matters that cost his some domestic political capital. But he never let down on Iran – even if it meant confronting the President of the United States in Congress or at the UN. This was an excellent strategy, and I think that history will prove that he succeeded in protecting the vital interests of the Jewish State despite giving in on some tactical levels to assuage President Obama.

The way Netanyahu handles President Trump is different. The administration of President Trump and President Obama are almost polar opposites one from another. So, a completely different way needs to be used when dealing with President Trump. However, at this point in time, Prime Minister Netanyahu is busy with his reelection campaign. If he wins, as most polls indicate he will, he should use his mandate to continue to weaken the threats from Israel’s north and strengthen Israel’s hold on the strategic areas in central Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the IDF will continue to attack Iranians in Syria. Earlier, an Israeli commander said it conducted attacks in the country on nearly a daily basis and supplied arms to Syrian rebels.
“I'm telling you, get out of there fast. We won’t stop attacking,” the prime minister said on Tuesday morning during a ceremony, in which he appointed Aviv Kochavi as the new chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

Netanyahu also rejected statements by an Iranian official, who said Iran only sent military advisers to Syria and not regular fighting troops.

“They always lie. They are lying with that and they are lying when they say their attempt to launch a satellite into space failed,” he said.

The Israeli leader was referring to the remarks made on Monday by Iranian General Hassan Firoozabadi, who said its “military advisers” will say in Syria as long as required to defeat terrorists, and an announcement on Tuesday by Iranian Communications Minister Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi, who said Tehran’s attempt to place a satellite into orbit had failed.

As the US is experiencing “certain difficulties” with the withdrawal from Syria, it should be coordinated with Iran and Russia to prevent “terrorists” from taking up the vacated space, the Turkish foreign minister says.
“The United States [has] been facing certain difficulties with the process of the troops' withdrawal from Syria. We want to coordinate this process with Russia and Iran, with which we had arranged work in the framework of the Astana process,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Wednesday.

Cavusoglu visited Moscow late in December to discuss the situation in Syria. On Wednesday, he mulled bilateral talks between Turkey and Iran, giving no timeframe, however.

At the same time, a tripartite summit in Moscow is being prepared as well, Cavusoglu revealed.

The proposal from Cavusoglu comes as Ankara and Washington are engaged in a bitter war of words over the US troop withdrawal from Syria. On Tuesday, US National Security Advisor John Bolton blasted an opinion piece penned by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the New York Times as both “offensive and wrong.”

Erdogan praised his own efforts in combatting terrorism in Syria, while criticizing the US-backed operations in Raqqa and the Iraqi city of Mosul, as well as recalling the “lesson of Iraq” and the “premature declarations of victory” which led to the emergence of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

Prior to that exchange, Bolton demanded safety guarantees for Syria’s Kurds from Turkey, calling it a precondition for US withdrawal. The Turkish president called Bolton’s demands a “huge mistake” and refused to “swallow” them. He also reiterated Ankara’s resolve to fight “terrorism” in Syria, stressing that it actually seeks to protect the “Kurdish brothers” in the neighboring country.

ALSO ON RT.COM
Bolton made a ‘serious mistake,’ Ankara won't ‘swallow’ his comments on Syria's Kurds – Erdogan
Russia, along with Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the ceasefire in Syria, which has been successfully implemented in several areas throughout the country. Moscow has actively undertaken efforts to settle the years-long conflict, supporting the Syrian government forces in the fight against terrorism, bringing humanitarian relief to civilians, and working on the bringing warring parties to the negotiating table.

The abrupt decision to withdraw troops from Syria announced by President Donald Trump in December was met in Moscow with a great deal of skepticism.

“Concerning the pullout of US troops, I don’t know what that is. The US has been in Afghanistan for 17 years already, and almost every year they say that they’re pulling their troops out. But they’re still there,” President Vladimir Putin said at the time.

RUMORS OF WAR: China’s army told to urgently prepare for war in warning to US and Taiwan
(Express) – President Xi Jinping told a meeting of top brass China’s armed forces must strengthen their sense of urgency and do everything they can to prepare for battle. The news comes amidst escalating tensions between China and the US as well as American-backed Taiwan, with disputes between the two superpowers ranging from trade to the status of the island. Mr Jinping told a meeting of the top military authority that China faced increasing risks and challenges, and the armed forces must work to

secure its security and development needs, reports the official Xinhua news agency. Mr. Jinping, who is also chairman of the Central Military Commission, said the armed forces must devise strategies for the new era and take on responsibilities for preparing and waging war. He is quoted as saying: ”The world is facing a period of major changes never seen in a century, and China is still in an important period of strategic opportunity for development.”

Russia to Deploy Precision Strike Missiles in Western Atlantic, Iran to send Warships
Jan 04, 2019 06:47 pm
Russia to Deploy Precision Strike Missiles in Western Atlantic, Iran to send Warships
(WFB) – Russia is deploying long-range, precision cruise missiles to the western Atlantic that American defense officials say will allow Moscow to target Washington and other East Coast cities with conventional or nuclear attacks. Moscow is adding Kalibr land attack cruise missiles to both warships and missile submarines that Moscow plans to use in Atlantic patrols near the United States, sorties that were once routine during the Cold War. The new sea-based Kalibr deployments are expected in the coming months, according to officials familiar with intelligence reports of the Russian maritime operations. The land-attack version of the Kalibr, known as the SS-N-30A by NATO, is a relatively new weapon and was showcased for the first time by Moscow in attacks on Syria that began in 2015.

(Reuters) – The Iranian navy will send warships to deploy in the Atlantic from March, a top commander said on Friday, as the Islamic Republic seeks to increase the operating range of its naval forces to the backyard of the United States, its arch-foe. Iran sees the presence of U.S. aircraft carriers in the Gulf as a security concern and its navy has sought to counter that by showing the flag near American waters. A flotilla will leave for the Atlantic early in the Iranian new year, starting from March, Iran’s naval deputy commander said.

PROPHECY WATCH: Iran, Turkey and Russia Threaten Israel

PROPHECY WATCH: Iran, Turkey and Russia Threaten Israel
(JP) – The fifth Cypriot-Greek-Israeli summit will take place in Beersheba on December 20. While much of Israel’s attention is focused on Iran’s proxies on the country’s northern and southern borders, this high-level trilateral meeting is a noteworthy strategic event. Hezbollah in Lebanon, Iranian militias in Syria, and Hamas in Gaza are serious military challenges along Israel’s northern and southern borders. They contribute to a new emerging threat in the eastern Mediterranean.

Each of these bad actors is under Iranian influence. Iran, which is seeking a Shi’ite corridor from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean, plans its own air and naval bases on the Mediterranean coast, too. This would allow Iran to project power into the Balkans along the Mediterranean shores, and further west, too, toward the Muslim communities in Europe. There are three Muslim states in the Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Kosovo) that have already been penetrated by Muslim powers Turkey and Iran.

PROPHECY WATCH: Iran, Turkey and Russia Threaten Israel
(JP) – The fifth Cypriot-Greek-Israeli summit will take place in Beersheba on December 20. While much of Israel’s attention is focused on Iran’s proxies on the country’s northern and southern borders, this high-level trilateral meeting is a noteworthy strategic event. Hezbollah in Lebanon, Iranian militias in Syria, and Hamas in Gaza are serious military challenges along Israel’s northern and southern borders. They contribute to a new emerging threat in the eastern Mediterranean.

Each of these bad actors is under Iranian influence. Iran, which is seeking a Shi’ite corridor from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean, plans its own air and naval bases on the Mediterranean coast, too. This would allow Iran to project power into the Balkans along the Mediterranean shores, and further west, too, toward the Muslim communities in Europe. There are three Muslim states in the Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Kosovo) that have already been penetrated by Muslim powers Turkey and Iran.

Russia Successfully Tests Weapon That Travels 27 Times Speed of Sound and Renders Missile Defense Systems ‘Useless’

Russia Successfully Tests Weapon That Travels 27 Times Speed of Sound and Renders Missile Defense Systems ‘Useless’
(Newsweek) – Russian officials said they have developed a new weapons system that travels at 27 times the speed of sound, thus making it “impossible” to intercept with current missile defense technology. The system, known as the Avangard hypersonic glide vehicle, “essentially makes missile defenses useless,” Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told Russian state television on Thursday, Associated Press reported. On Wednesday, the Russian military completed a successful test of the Avangard—

according to the Kremlin—in which the weapon was launched from the Dombarovskiy missile base in the Southern Ural Mountains, striking a practice target 3,700 miles away in Kamchatka, a peninsula in the far east of the country. President Vladimir Putin oversaw the test, commenting afterward that the weapons system would guarantee Russia’s security for the foreseeable future and that it could be deployed as early as next year.

PROPHECY WATCH: Could Vladimir Putin be Gog of Bible Prophecy?
Dec 28, 2018 08:52 am
PROPHECY WATCH: Could Vladimir Putin be Gog of Bible Prophecy?
(CE) – According to Scripture, an aggressive and authoritarian ruler identified as “Gog” will arise from Russia (known in Biblical times as “Magog”) to lead a coalition of nations against Israel, in what is known as the Ezekiel 38-39 war, in the last days. Since this ruler is likely that of either a current or future leader of Russia, and the stage appears to be set for the Ezekiel 38-39 war, there may well be a credible candidate for Gog, and there is: Vladimir Putin. Little is known about this man, who was catapulted from obscurity into the seat of Russian power. What is known, however, is that Putin very closely fits the description of Gog…


1. Gog is a dictator with such powerful reputation to where countries of the world hesitate to confront him directly (Ezekiel 38:13). Putin is an undisputed dictator, and him and his Russia are already becoming so powerful that no one in the world can stop them. Forbes has named Vladimir Putin the world’s most powerful person four years in a row. Garry Kasparov in his book, “Winter Is Coming” says, “Putin’s Russia is clearly the biggest and most dangerous threat facing the world today.” Time magazine (2014) makes the case that Vladimir Putin does not see himself as Russia’s president or prime minister but rather as her modern Czar (Gog is a title like “Czar”). Putin is certainly living up to his name – Vladimir – which means: Universal ruler!

Assad just gave Iraq authorization to strike ISIS inside Syria — without waiting for approval
December 31, 2018 by Jerry McCormick

Airman Magazine / CCL
Syria is already making aggressive moves in anticipation of the United States withdrawal of troops from their country.

In a stunning announcement, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad gave the green light to Iraq to attack ISIS within its borders without waiting for approval from Syrian officials.

Taking on the Enemy
Iraq and Syria have decided that it’s now up to them to take on ISIS.

With President Trump announcing he will be removing troops from the area, Syria leadership is revving up its own efforts against ISIS to ensure the terrorists do not gain a strong foothold there again.

While Iraqi forces have regularly conducted bombing missions on Syrian soil, they have always had to wait until the military strikes were approved by Syrian officials.

That stipulation has now been removed, giving Iraq a lot more flexibility to carry out missions as it sees fit.

Keeping Them Out
One of Trump’s reasons for removing U.S. troops from Syria is because he believes that ISIS has been largely defeated in the area.

President Trump said he believes the hard work has been done and Syria, along with its middle eastern allies, should be able to finish the job.

But while Trump’s announcement was not well-received by military leaders and politicos, he seems to be standing firm on his decision.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), on whom Trump has relied heavily to push his MAGA agenda in Congress, was vocally opposed to Trump pulling out the troops.

Graham said he wants “to fight the war in the enemy’s backyard, not ours.”

But after a lunch with the president, Graham seems to be back on our side.

Meanwhile, Syria seems to be ready to move forward without the help of the United States.

In addition to allowing Iraq to operate its strikes without approval, the country has also opened up its financial system to its allies, offering “full cooperation on the financial and banking levels.”

Do you agree with Trump's choice to pull troops out of Syria?
Yes
No
Next
According to reports, it will take more than a decade to rebuild Syria from the almost decade-long war.

Costs of rebuilding are expected to top more than $200 billion.

Syrian govt forces 'raise flag' over key area of Manbij as YPG calls to protect it from Turkey

Syrian government forces have entered the northern city of Manbij, Damascus announced in response to a call for intervention by Kurdish militias. The move comes after Turkey amassed troops on its southern border.
On Friday, the YPG, the Kurdish militias, called on Damascus to secure Manbij, a strategic location in northern Syria close to the border with Turkey. Ankara earlier said it plans to conduct an “anti-terrorist operation” around the city, with the YPG being the target.

ALSO ON RT.COM
Kurdish YPG calls on Syrian government to protect Manbij from Turkish attack
Damascus responded with a statement, which said government forces were already entering the city.

“Considering the Arab Army’s duty and in a response to a call by the people of Manbij, the Syrian general staff announces that the Army has entered Manbij and raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic there,” the statement cited by Syrian media said.

The statement added that the army is determined to “crush terrorism and defeat all invaders and occupiers” and to provide security for all Syrian citizens.

The development comes after the US, an ally of the Kurds for the past several years, decided to withdraw its troops from Kurd-controlled areas in Syria. The withdrawal came after Ankara complained about the presence of the YPG fighters near its border. Turkey sees all Kurdish militias as an extension of its domestic Kurdish insurgency and attacked them repeatedly in both Syria and Iraq.

ALSO ON RT.COM
Arab states are making nice with Assad’s Syria. Will the West follow suit?
After Washington said it would be pulling out of northern Syria, Turkey amassed a large fighting force near its southern border but refrained from launching the promised offensive. American troops are still deployed along the border, which may explain why hostilities have not broken out immediately.

RUMORS OF WAR: U.S. Sends Aircraft Carrier to Persian Gulf in Show of Force Against Iran
Dec 08, 2018 03:37 pm
RUMORS OF WAR: U.S. Sends Aircraft Carrier to Persian Gulf in Show of Force Against Iran
(WSJ) – A U.S. aircraft carrier strike group will arrive in the Middle East within days, U.S. defense officials said, ending the longest period in two decades that such a military presence has been absent from the region. The USS John C. Stennis and accompanying ships will arrive by this week’s end, the first such military presence in the region in eight months, the officials said, to exhibit a show of force against Iran. Tensions between Washington and Tehran are growing over renewed Trump administration sanctions on the

country, Iranian-backed groups in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen and Iran’s latest ballistic missile tests. The naval deployment also will support the continuing war against remnants of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and the U.S. war in Afghanistan, where the U.S. and Afghan militaries have ramped up airstrikes in an effort to press the Taliban into peace talks and rid the country of what they consider irreconcilable fighters, the officials said. The Stennis is scheduled to remain in the region for about two months, the officials said, spending most of that time in the Persian Gulf.

RUMORS OF WAR: U.S. Fears Iran Planning ‘Massive Regional War’ in Middle East
(WFB) The Trump administration disclosed that Iran is behind the construction of several underground tunnels leading into Israel that Hezbollah militants and other terror forces have been using to conduct attacks, according to multiple U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon and communicated fears that Tehran is preparing to lead a “massive regional war.” The public identification of Iran isn’t likely to surprise international observers, but signals aggressive moves by the Trump administration to tie Iran to

the rise of terrorism not just in Israel, but across the Middle East, where Iranian-backed militants continue to strike U.S. interests and allies. The Obama administration, in contrast to Trump, was careful to avoid singling out Iran as the chief force for terrorism against Israel and U.S. allies in the region in hopes of appeasing the hardline regime as it sought to ink the landmark nuclear pact that Trump abandoned earlier this year.

WAR DRUMS: Ukrainian President imposes martial law after face off with Russian ships near Crimea

WAR DRUMS: Ukrainian President imposes martial law after face off with Russian ships near Crimea
(RT News) – Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has imposed martial law after the country’s vessels faced off with Russian ships near Crimea. The measure is expected to last for 60 days and was earlier approved by Ukraine’s Security Council. Martial law is scheduled to be in place from November 26 to January 26. It still requires final approval from Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada. However, the Ukrainian General Staff was already tasked with beginning partial troop mobilization, according to media reports.

The Ukrainian army was put on full combat alert even before the martial law was declared. Rada is expected to vote on the motion later on Monday. The move comes on the back of a standoff between a group of Ukrainian Navy ships, which crossed into Russian territorial sea without authorization, and the Russian border guard vessels. As the Ukrainians were undertaking “dangerous maneuvers” and defied legal orders of the Russian side,

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has imposed martial law after the country’s vessels faced off with Russian ships near Crimea. The measure could potentially allow him to call off scheduled elections and preserve power.
Martial law is scheduled to be in place from November 26 to January 26. It still requires final approval from Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada. However, the Ukrainian General Staff was already tasked with beginning partial troop mobilization, according to media reports.
The Ukrainian army was put on full combat alert even before the martial law was declared.
The Rada is expected to vote on the motion later on Monday. However, Poroshenko revealed that he actually brought martial law into force ahead of its approval by parliament, starting from November 28. With that, the president also warned about a “serious threat” of a “ground invasion” of Ukraine, citing a “secret intelligence document.”

Invoking martial law is seen as a move which is beneficial for Poroshenko. The president’s rating is falling as he struggles to campaign for re-election in March.

However, the elections would be called off if martial law was still in place by that time, meaning that the president would keep his post despite unpopular economic measures and corruption scandals in his government.

The decree, which Poroshenko introduced in parliament, specifically states that the people’s right “to elect and be elected” might be suspended under martial law, effectively meaning that the government can call off any elections as long as the measure is in place.

Facing a public outcry over the possible fate of the upcoming elections, the president suggested that lawmakers approve martial law for 30 rather than 60 days, so as to avoid derailing the March vote. The elections will go ahead on schedule, he insisted.

The Ukrainian leadership apparently seeks to “score political points” ahead of the March 2019 presidential elections, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the issue. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also described the decision to impose the martial law as “an electoral intrigue.”
The move comes on the back of a standoff between a group of Ukrainian Navy ships, which crossed into Russian territorial sea without authorization, and the Russian border guard vessels.
The Ukrainian ships were sailing between two of the country’s ports: from Odessa in the Black Sea to Mariupol in the Azov Sea. The only waterway connecting these ports is through the Kerch Strait between Crimea and mainland Russia.

Although both Russia and Ukraine have freedom of navigation in the Kerch Strait under a 2003 treaty, there are detailed technical rules on how vessels should pass through the narrow, complex waterway. Every ship passing through it should contact the Crimean sea port of Kerch, which controls traffic in the area.
While Kiev says that it notified the Russian side about its ships sailing through the area in advance, Moscow denies it received any warning. Moscow then accused Kiev of staging a planned provocation aimed at stirring up the conflict between the two neighbors and justifying the imposition of martial law..

WAR DRUMS: Gaza-Based Rocket Assault Forces Israelis to Brace for War
(CBN News) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with his Security Cabinet Tuesday to decide how to respond to the biggest single day of rocket attacks from Gaza ever. The unprecedented barrage has brought the Jewish state to a knife’s edge between a ceasefire and war. Air raid sirens and explosions:
this is the sound of war in southern Israel. Terrorists in the Gaza Strip launched some 400 rockets, mortars and missiles at Israel. The Iron Dome Anti-Missile batteries struck down about 100. Some fell inside populated areas. “Those rockets have struck inside Israel as well as inside cities in the south such as where we are now in Ashkelon,” Israel Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told CBN News.

RUMORS OF WAR: US and Japan draw up plans to defend disputed islands from China
(news.com.au) – The Senkaku Islands are tiny rocky spurs, part of a scattering of islands between the northern tip of Taiwan and the Japanese home islands. They are rapidly turning into a flashpoint for war. Beijing claims the islands as part of its historical inheritance — as it does neighboring Taiwan, despite failing to seize the protectorate during the Chinese Civil War. Taiwan, however, was a Japanese protectorate before
World War II. It’s a messy historical scenario, thought resolved through United Nations conventions and treaties established after the conflict. But ongoing aggressive incursions by Chinese fishing boats — organized as a state militia — and a freshly militarised coast guard has seen tensions in the East China Sea flare. Now, Japan and the United States are drawing up battle plans to enable their forces to fight together against any Chinese incursion.

RUMORS OF WAR: Iran president warns of ‘war situation’ as sanctions resume
(AP) — Iran greeted the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions on Monday with air defense drills and a statement from President Hassan Rouhani that the nation faces a “war situation,” raising Mideast tensions as America’s maximalist approach to the Islamic Republic takes hold. The sanctions end all economic benefits America had granted Tehran for its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, though Iran for now continues to abide by the accord that saw it limit its enrichment of uranium. While at the
moment not threatening to resume higher enrichment, Iranian officials in recent months have made a point to warn the controversial process could resume at any time, faster than before. The new American sanctions particularly hurt Iran’s vital oil industry, a crucial source of hard currency for its anemic economy. Its national currency has plummeted over the last year, sending prices for everything from mobile phones to medicine skyrocketing. “Today, Iran is able to sell its oil and it will sell,” Rouhani vowed Monday as the sanctions kicked in.

RUMORS OF WAR: China, Russia and Israel preparing for War!
Matthew 24:6 – And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.


Netanyahu Says Israel Preparing for War With Gaza – Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a stark warning to the Palestinian Authority and to the international community during Sunday’s cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. The gist of his remarks was that Israel will not hesitate to launch a full-scale military operation against the Gaza Strip if the situation along the coastal enclave’s border continues to deteriorate. Over the past couple weeks, Gaza’s Hamas rulers have encouraged an intensification of violent disturbances along the Strip’s security fence. Unlike similar demonstrations earlier in the year, those taking part are now hurling grenades and firebombs at Israeli soldiers and openly trying to breach the border.

China Central Television presented a speech from President Xi, who earlier this year claimed the position in perpetuity, at the weekend — several days after it was made during a tour of Guangzhou province. “We need to take all complex situations into consideration and make emergency plans accordingly,” President Xi told the officers of the Southern Theatre Command.

RUMORS OF WAR: Putin warns that Russia will target nations hosting US missiles

RUMORS OF WAR: Putin warns that Russia will target nations hosting US missiles
(ABC News) Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Wednesday that if the United States deploys intermediate-range missiles in Europe, Russia will have to target the nations that would host them. The stern statement follows U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement over the weekend that he intends to opt out of a 1987 nuclear arms control pact over alleged Russian violations. Putin said he hoped the United States wouldn’t follow up by positioning intermediate-range missiles in Europe.
Such a move would be a repeat of a Cold War showdown in the 1980s, when the U.S. and the Soviet Union both deployed intermediate-range missiles on the continent, the Russian leader said. “If they are deployed in Europe, we will naturally have to respond in kind,” Putin said at a news conference after talks with visiting Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

(Military Times) The former commander of the U.S. Army in Europe says it’s likely the United States will be at war with China in 15 years. Retired Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges said at a Warsaw security forum on Wednesday that European allies will have to do more to ensure their own defenses against Russia as Americans focus
more on the Pacific. Hodges said: “I think in 15 years — it’s not inevitable, but it is a very strong likelihood — that we will be at war with China. The United States does not have the capacity to do everything it has to do in Europe and in the Pacific to deal with the Chinese threat.”
