US Pulls Patriot Missiles From Turkey

The U.S. military is pulling its Patriot missiles from Turkey this fall, the U.S. Embassy in Ankara announced Sunday.

The Patriot missiles “will be redeployed to the United States for critical modernization upgrades,” according to a statement from the U.S. Embassy in Turkey.  “This decision follows a U.S. review of global missile defense posture.”

“The U.S. and NATO commitments to the defense of Allies - including Turkey - are steadfast,” the statement said.

The U.S. military has deployed Patriot missiles along the Turkey-Syria border since 2013 along with a ground force of 300 U.S. Army soldiers to operate them, protecting Turkey from potential Syrian missiles.

The decision to pull the missiles has been “long planned” and is not a response to Turkey’s unannounced massive airstrike against a Kurdish separatist group in northern Iraq on July 24, a State Dept. official said. The strike endangered U.S. Special Forces on the ground training Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, angering U.S. military officials. The U.S. military was taken completely by surprise by the Turkish airstrike, which involved 26 jets, military sources told Fox News.

Patriot missiles have been upgraded in recent years to shoot down ballistic missiles, in addition to boasting an ability to bring down enemy aircraft. The U.S. military has deployed these missiles along Turkey’s border with Syria.

When a Kurdish journalist asked the Army’s outgoing top officer, Gen. Raymond Odierno, about the incident over northern Iraq at his final press conference Wednesday, Odierno replied: “We’ve had conversations about this to make sure it doesn’t happen.”

The Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, has been listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. It is influenced by Marxist ideology and has been responsible for recent attacks in Turkey, killing Turkish police and military personnel. A separate left-wing radical group was responsible for attacking the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul last week.

State Department and Pentagon officials have said in recent days that Turkey has a right to defend itself against the PKK.

Yeah. We need to take the missiles home to upgrade them. Right. Sure. Sniff, sniff, sniff. What’s that smell? Scents of grass, and clover, and hay, a bit of corn silage, with an overriding nose of ammonia ...




Turkey’s strikes on Kurds could drag US into new front

Just hours after a deal last month allowing the U.S. to use Turkey’s air bases to launch sorties against ISIS, Turkey pulled a move that left American military leaders surprised and outraged, and raised questions about the two nations’ alliance in the war on the jihadist army.

With only 10 minutes notice to their American partners, Turkey launched a massive air strike of its own July 24 against a Kurdish militant group in the northern mountains of Iraq. The U.S. had barely enough warning to make sure its own forces were out of the way, according to a military source with knowledge of the tension Turkey’s attack caused in the Combined Air and Space Operations Center, the allied headquarters in the air war against ISIS.

“A Turkish officer came into the CAOC, and announced that the strike would begin in 10 minutes and he needed all allied jets flying above Iraq to move south of Mosul immediately,” said the military source, describing events that took place in the center, in a secret location in the Middle East. “We were outraged.”
...
“We had U.S. Special Forces not far from where the Turks were bombing, training Kurdish Peshmerga fighters,” the source said. “We had no idea who the Turkish fighters were, their call signs, what frequencies they were using, their altitude or what they were squawking
...
The Turkish government has been concerned that the U.S. fight against ISIS would embolden the Kurds, who now control most of Turkey’s 560-mile border with Syria except for a small 68-mile corridor between the Syrian border towns of Kobani and Azaz, west of the Euphrates River. Should the Kurds gain control of this section of the border they would have unfettered access from Iraq through Syria all the way to the Mediterranean.

A military source confirmed that Turkish tanks fired on YPG units to keep them from entering this 68-mile area, killing some YPG fighters allied with the PKK in northern Iraq. These fighters have helped the U.S. coalition secure gains against ISIS on the ground near Tal Abyad and Kobani and are the key to the coalition moving on the ISIS capital, Raqqa.

A senior defense official told Fox News that another reason the Turks want to keep Kurdish fighters outside of the 68-mile border is to prevent the Kurds from potentially selling their oil on the open market from ports along the Mediterranean.




Let’s see if I’ve got this right ...

Turkey “inadvertently” advancing ISIS cause, by America having a snit fit and removing Patriot Missiles from Turkey, because Turkey ran a major airstrike against the Kurds, who we were helping fight ISIS. Well, sort of helping. Our guys embedded with the Kurds got 10 minutes notice that the bombs were falling. (which means the jets were just about to begin their target run before the message was sent, as bombs take 3 minutes to fall from 50,000 feet up).

USA has been afraid to arm or fully side with this bunch - who are not really muslims - since Bush 1 in 1992. If Kurdistan became a “real” state, it would take a big chunk of Iran, Iraq, and Turkey. and maybe some Lebanon or Syria. Oh no, can’t upset the apple cart. Better to urge them on and let Saddam poison gas them. Or urge them to fight ISIS with no weapons, and the instant they face that enemy to let the Turks blow them up from behind.  So fuck the Kurds, but to get even, we’ll take our missiles AWAY FROM OUR NATO ALLY to leave them vulnerable to Putin who is right the hell there on the other side of the little pond called the Black Sea.

Why? Because Turkey has become an islamic state. If not in name, then in majority reality. They never were much of an ally, and now they’re even less. So we lose because the Kurds lose, the Caliphate wins because of standard mulsim perfidy, and Putin wins the big one (now effectively stronger in Asia Minor [ie nuke threat can’t be stopped]) without even playing the game.

But hey, it gets EVEN BETTER!

Loads of links at every search engine. Backstory, construction story, videos, plans, even Ettore Bugatti’s original patents. Sweet.
Personally, I think it’s merely the most bad-ass looking airplane ever dreamed up. For that reason alone it has to fly.

h/t to Vilmar for posting on this last week. No first flight date yet released.

caught me by surprise. i visited this place in 1980. what memories.

I was here in 1980, while acting as road manager for a country singer.
We had a two day break, and one of our Brit backing musicians was familiar with the castle and suggested we visit as we were in the area.
The photos on line in this article just don’t do it justice.  We were inside and saw the kitchen, or what was left anyway.  There wasn’t a very large crowd, so it was a delightful day.  We were told that lots of workmen died building this place and I still do not know how those ppl of that day, managed to construct this.  We were told that quite often the dead were buried in the walls.

Back then, I had a simple Kodak 110 camera. Gee, a simple snap and shoot and never the best quality, but those pix I took would have nice to have today.  Unfortunately, my suitcase was stolen off the train we were on after the road tour was over.  I foolishly stored my case, with the camera and dozens of rolls of film, inside the luggage along with cash, in the racks provided for suitcases between the carriages.  I never go over that because I took photos of everywhere we played and points of interest. 

Is this Britain’s best job? You could be custodian of your own CASTLE with stunning clifftop views (but sorry, there aren’t any escalators or lifts for the 1,000 steps you have to climb every day)

Dunnottarr Castle is situated above the North Sea outside Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire and is packed with history
It’s currently advertising for a new castle deputy to help look after the place, once home to the Scottish crown jewels
Listed among the duties are opening and closing, collecting entrance fee and making sure visitors stay safe
Custodian Jim Wands, who’ll work alongside applicant, says ‘to say it’s the best job I’ve had is an understatement’

By Gemma Mullin for MailOnline

Job seekers are being offered the chance to trade their office block for a castle - but they’ll have to be prepared to climb 1,000 steps every day.

Perched on a clifftop 160ft above the North Sea just outside Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, is Dunnottar Castle, which is looking for a new custodian.

In the 17th Century it was the home of the Scottish crown jewels, known as the Honours of Scotland, during the invasion of Oliver Cromwell’s army, as well as playing host to Mary Queen of Scots, James VI and Charles II over the years.

The castle was most recently used as the set of the 1990 film version of Hamlet starring Mel Gibson and is an attraction to more than 80,000 people from all over the world every year.

It now needs a new castle deputy to help look after it and there has already been plenty interest since the job advert was posted about a week ago.

image

Listed among the various duties the job entails is opening and closing the castle, cleaning the castle toilets, collecting entrance fees and making sure visitors stay safe on the clifftop.

Custodian Jim Wands, who will work alongside the successful applicant, said: ‘It’s a job that doesn’t come up very often. To say it’s the best job I’ve ever had is an understatement. There is something new to do every day. I love it.

Evening Surprise

On my way to work this evening, I saw a bald eagle fly overhead when I was crossing the parking lot. He was just poking along, hardly more than treetop height. Very level wings, hardly any dihedral at all. And what a lazy flapper, barely moving his wings an inch or two. I thought my ID was wrong at first because he held his outer wing primary feathers way back, curved rearwards like a sheepsfoot knife blade. That’s not usual, but maybe he was tired or wet. Hey, for all I know he’d been sitting up in the tall trees here in my little jungle, licking his beak and thinking how tasty a feral kitty or two might be. Ruh roh.

Wet? Yeah, bald eagles live mostly on fish. I live about 500 yards from one reservoir/nature preserve, and hardly a mile and a half from another reservoir in the top of a mountain. And the Delaware River is just over thataways a few miles, and of course the South Branch of the Raritan River is right here in town and all around us. Plenty of good fishing, and all the critters a birdie could eat, large or small.

Around here, when you see a really big bird, your first thought is Turkey Vulture. After that, it’s Wild Turkey, because we’ve got armies of those guys too, often in flocks of 3 or 4 dozen. And at least two large bodied hawk species. So when something of that large size flies over low and slow and it’s somehow different, you notice.

Bald eagles. Cool. No wonder we seem to be a bit light on the Canada Geese this year.

Life in the sticks, huh?

Late Night Indulgence

image  image


One nice part about being sick, is that you can feel sorry for yourself, which allows you to rationalize nearly any minor indulgence. Late night tea with genuine Peek Freans Fruit Cremes? Works for me. Because I deserve it.

Feeling quite a bit better after a few days of medications. Still coughing a fair amount more than I’d wish, but it’s lessened so much in intensity. Well, after a really nasty bought last night. Guess I turned the corner.

the invasion of europe continues while old allies remember and celebrate end of WW2

Take a look at this.

And the UN as well as other bleeding hearts want EU member states to take in this rabble. 

Even the Germans, who have become rather soft and frightened of being accused of race hate, are not backing new calls from EU for a quota among the states.

The only good news I heard today was that some 40 vermin posing as humans, drowned when their boat went glug, glug.
Good.  Sorry it wasn’t more. 

The photos for this article were more graphic and showed men like the guy in the yellow shirt, with drawn knives.  But the on line pix don’t have quite the impact of the print version. Still, some serious stuff and these folks are causing mayhem beyond anything I can describe.

Migrants fight with knives and clubs as they engage in brutal battle to board train to the West

Gangs arm themselves with clubs and rocks determined to ensure they join the people on the train heading off in search of a better life

Migrant fought with knives, sticks and rocks as they fought for room on an overcrowded train.

The brawls broke out at the train station in Gevgelija, Macedonia, a major hub for those headed to Greece.

The migrants are desperate to leave the country as soon as possible as new asylum laws mean that those entering illegally have only three days before they can be arrested.

Thousands are sleeping rough by the station or even on the tracks.

During the chaos a boy was electrocuted and another young men had an epileptic fit.

And this is an entirely different group.

New chaos on Kos as Pakistanis, Afghans and Iranians throw fists and rocks in fight over to be registered as migrants

· Riot police stood by and did nothing as bloody-faced Asian migrants clashed near a police station on island of Kos

· Giant ferry has docked on the island to provide temporary shelter and a screening facility for thousands of migrants

· Syrians given priority over Asian migrants because they are fleeing country’s war and therefore considered refugee

· The International Organisation of Migration says the number of asylum seeker to reach Europe will soon top 250,000

By Jay Akbar For Mailonline

Fighting broke out between a group of Asian migrants on the Greek island of Kos today.

Riot police did nothing as 50 asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran threw rocks and exchanged blows near a passenger ship where hundreds of migrants were being registered.

image

Hundreds of Asian migrants were stood near the police station when the brawl broke out, possibly because they have little chance of being processed on the Eleftherios Venizelos.

The Greek authorities are giving priority to Syrians. They are treated as refugees because they are fleeing their country’s bitter civil war and therefore have greater rights under international law than economic migrants.

News of the outbreak in Kos comes as experts claim nearly 250,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean into Europe this year and that number will top quarter-of-a-million by the end of the month.

Funny, 30 Seconds Of John Kerry Does It For Me

Mr. Bunnsy Gets His Head Down?


26 Page Kiddie Book Tops Amazon Best Seller List:

scientist develops book to send children to sleep in minutes

image



This book is a real yawner. Which is why it’s selling millions of copies.

The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep uses psychological techniques to send children to sleep quickly

For most authors the prospect of their books sending readers to sleep would be horrifying.

But the latest publishing phenomenon which is topping the Amazon charts is a book which promises to do just that, at least for children.

The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep, has been created by Swedish behavioural psychologist and linguist Carl-Johan Forssen Ehrlin and is currently outselling Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman and Paula Hawkins The Girl on The Train.

The 26 page paperback, which is the first self-published work to ever top the Amazon charts, uses psychological and positive reinforcement techniques to help children relax, focus and eventually drift off.

Parents are instructed to yawn frequently, emphasise certain words and speak in a slow and calm voice when reading words in italic. Although it has pictures, children are asked to just listen rather than read.

Forssen Ehrlin said it was ‘the verbal equivalent of rocking a baby to sleep’ and hundreds of online reviews from parents claim it has revolutionised bedtimes.

“I had written books before about leadership and personal development using these techniques but I got the idea for a children’s book while I was driving on a long journey with my mother and she fell asleep and I got the idea of how I could use my methods to help children relax” he said.

“When we stopped I wrote it all down on a napkin but it took another three and a half years to come up with the perfect story so that all the techniques were used in the correct order.

“It helps the child to focus and makes them a part of the story so that they fall asleep along with the rabbit. They meet characters like Uncle Yawn and the Heavy-Eyed Owl.”
...
And the reaction from other parents has been equally positive.

“I’m actually speechless!” one parent wrote on Amazon. “I’m sat here waiting for someone to pinch me. Bedtime just went from taking 2-3 hours to taking 12mins. We made it to the middle of page 2.”

I don’t have kids. Is it really so hard to get them to go to sleep? I’d think ... well, feed them earlier, clean them up, tuck them in warm and tight, dim the lights, and read to them in a calm voice. It always worked for us. We got Winnie Ther Pooh, and I think it took a year or two to make it through the whole book. Just being cozy and having the parent there talking calmly and affectionately… the kid feels safe and loved, relaxes, and that’s it. Of course, you don’t then sneak downstairs and crank up Alice Cooper on the stereo. Be smart about things, right?

Oik, I think I’ll take my morning medicine a little early and head back to bed for a bit myself. And I don’t even have a bunny.

Up North In The UK

Even though this looks like a really cheesy photoshop, it isn’t.

Neither is it a still from the new Steven Moffat episode “Dr. Who meets the giant epiglottis”.

Nope. It’s a real person out for a back-country hike this week. Mid-August. In Scotland.

See, with all this Global Warming, they had a really rancid winter up there.  And the snow still hasn’t fully melted. But what’s left behind is tunnels, like the runoff channels under a glacier. Which it almost is I guess.

So it makes for some neat pictures. And a whole lot of cold mud to slog through. But hey, it’s a sure cure for the summer heatwave! If there was any summer heatwave ...

Lots of neat pics, right here.

Hold On To Jeff

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The University of Texas on Friday abruptly canceled weekend plans to relocate a statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis after a legal challenge from the same group that recently lost at the U.S. Supreme Court over rejected Confederate license plates.

The cancellation was announced a day after new University President Greg Fenves said he would uproot the century-old statue away from the center of campus, but leave statues of other Confederate figures untouched.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans, which says it seeks to celebrate Southern heritage, filed for a temporary restraining order Friday but has not yet received a decision from a judge. However, university spokesman Gary Susswein said the school agreed to wait until a court can review the challenge, all the while expressing confidence that the Davis statue will ultimately be relocated to a museum.

“We are confident we will move ahead with these plans,” Susswein said.

The statue had been targeted by vandals and had come under increasing criticism as a symbol of racism. State government and businesses around the U.S. have removed Confederate symbols following the mass shooting in June of black church members in Charleston, South Carolina.

In court filings, the Sons of Confederate Veterans argue that the South Carolina shooting set off “orchestrated national hysteria and pressure” to remove Confederate symbols. The group claims that leaders of the 50,000-student campus have no unilateral authority to relocate the statue.

In June, the Supreme Court rejected a free-speech challenge by the group after a state board denied it a Texas license plate bearing the Confederate flag. The court said in a 5-4 ruling that Texas can limit the content of licenses plates because they are state property and not the equivalent of bumper stickers.

“That and Charleston pretty much started this free-for-all against the Confederate flag,” said Kirk D. Lyons, a North Carolina-based attorney for the group. “It wouldn’t matter if I knew with 99 percent certainty that we’d be blown out of the water in court. It’s the right thing to do to stand up to this nonsense.

I’m getting pretty sick of this revisionist / denial / pander to the brainless / BRA / crap, and I’m a damnyankee.

anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the feminazi pov is automatically, a misogynist.

So being silenced for an unpopular opinion with a minority group, or any group, is in keeping with free expression and speech.  Hey, with all due respects to any ladies reading here today, what he said and even if he is dead wrong, is not hate speech.

I had to look the word up a second time to make certain I knew the meaning of, misogynist.  I did know what the word means, and nowhere in what this DJ said could it be reasonably assumed he hates women or even dislikes women.  He just finds breast feeding in public rather disgusting and off putting. And especially so when the female is rather on the overly large size.  These days, that word get used and overly abused to shout out and shut down anyone who dares say a critical word about a woman, or group of them for whatever reason.  And of course it’s usually the guys who are the haters for daring to say they’re put off by some actions or words used by, generally, feminazis. 

It’s kind of odd in a way considering that it’s generally accepted, that most if not all males are breast mad beasts who go stark raving mad with desire, at the mere thought never mind the sight of a female breast.  And they are usually displayed and nicely sometimes, everywhere we go. 

So anyway, this poor schnook says breastfeeding is awful in public and women should not expose others to their right to do so.  How did breastfeeding women make it all those years ago when ladies were a bit more modest?  Or, is that a misogynist question?  I think he stuck his foot in mouth tho, when he said breastfeeding was, “unnatural”.  Maybe he meant to say in public.

For our American readers, Chav or Chavvy is a Brit word.

noun, Chiefly British Slang: Disparaging and Offensive

a person who wears fashionable brands, flashy jewelry, etc., but is regarded as having bad or lower-class taste.

Alex Dyke: BBC radio DJ suspended after complaining about ‘unnatural’ breastfeeding

A BBC radio DJ has been suspended after claiming on air that breastfeeding is “unnatural” and “has to be stopped”.

Alex Dyke, who broadcasts on Radio Solent, was later said to have attempted to defend his comments by arguing that “my point was, fat chavvy mums with their boobs out on buses isn’t a good look”. A petition has called for the “ill-educated misogynist” to be taken off air.

More than 6,600 people have signed the change.org petition. The BBC said that his comments were “unacceptable” and that the DJ would not present his show on Friday. It was unclear how long he would be suspended.

In his show, which was “not currently” available on its iPlayer web page, Mr Dyke said: “It is 2015. Ladies, mums, we don’t like breastfeeding in public, honestly we don’t.

“I experienced this yesterday. I was on a bus and there was a lady on this bus. She was quite a big girl and she had a toddler with her. She starts to breastfeed her baby on the bus. I didn’t know where to look. She’s putting me in an embarrassing situation.

“Breastfeeding is unnatural. I know its natural but it’s kind of unnatural.
We don’t want it in public. It was OK in the Stone Age, when we knew no better.”

“I blame the earth mothers – you know the ones I mean, the ones with the moustaches, the ones who work in libraries, the ones who wear hessian, the ones they’re always on Radio 4 on Women’s Hour [sic], they are always pushing the boundaries and making us feel uncomfortable.”

The petition, posted by Maisie Jameson, said: “There is already a stigma around breastfeeding, and we don’t need ill-educated misogynists like Alex Dyke to make it even more apparent.

“In fact he was right.  We’re NOT in the Stone Age anymore – we’re in the 21st century.”

source

What stigma pray is she referring to?  I have never read or heard that there was any stigma attached to that action, except when done in public.
