    (CU News) - When it comes to D-Day, if you were there, only one word was necessary – Utah. It was such a life changing event that a young soldier, named Ed Manley, returned years later to mark the 50th anniversary by parachuting the beach and retracing that fateful day to honor the memory of his fallen friends. Over the years, WW2 veteran Ed Manley has taken the time to relate his experiences and perspectives on the D-Day invasion. For this mission, the pre-invasion planning included teams such as Manley’s group. As a demolition man, Manley and eleven other soldiers...

    How the (Indian) army taught the Chinese a lesson By DAVID DEVADAS Last updated on: July 28, 2020 16:47 IST The Chinese probably thought its brutal assault was a knock-out, but they had not counted on the ingenuity, loyalty and courage of battle-trained Indian officers and jawans. David Devadas pieces together what happened on the night of June 15 in the Galwan Valley. The battle at Galwan on June 15 illustrated how a well-trained army can most effectively deploy resources and tactics on the run, even as masses of deadly opponents attack it as fast as in a video game....
  • Why is a second term for Donald Trump a better chance of peace than a Biden presidency?

    On the first day of this month a mild mannered poet from Jakarta and I created a bilingual declaration of peace. Here is the English language half of it: "A DECLARATION OF PEACE WE LOVE & RESPECT PEACE. SO WE DECLARE THAT FREEDOM, DEMOCRACY AND CIVILISED HUMANITY ARE THE PRINCIPAL FOUNDATIONS OF PEACE." As General Douglas MacArthur said "Men since the beginning of time have sought peace." Liberals talk of themselves as peace makers but the Quaker Richard Nixon changed the world by talking with Cold War adversaries. Ronald Reagan ended and won the Cold War. It has been written...

    Egypt’s parliament has authorized the deployment of troops outside the country after the president threatened military action against Turkish-backed forces in Libya - Egypt’s parliament on Monday authorized the deployment of troops outside the country, a move that could escalate the spiraling war in Libya after the president threatened military action against Turkish-backed forces in the oil-rich country. A troop deployment in Libya could bring Egypt and Turkey, close U.S. allies that support rival sides in the conflict, into direct confrontation. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has called the strategic coastal city of Sirte a “red line” and warned that any attack...

    U.S. Navy Cmdr. Ernest Krause is assigned to lead an Allied convoy across the Atlantic during World War II. His convoy, however, is pursued by German U-boats. Although this is Krause's first wartime mission, he finds himself embroiled in what would come to be known as the longest, largest and most complex naval battle in history: The Battle of the Atlantic.

    Victor Davis Hanson is, I think, now regarded as one of the two or three most important military historians alive. This is largely because of his incredible book "Carnage and Culture," but also his books on generals and battles "Soul of Battle," "Ripples of Battle," and his numerous columns during the Iraq War. I'll never forget one of his best columns was "I'd hate to be fighting us." His latest foray, however, isn't up to the same quality, despite a massive 529 pages of densely packed text. Its strengths: *It is well researched with extensive notes and bibliography. That said,...

    Is the United States, preoccupied with a pandemic and a depression created by that medical crisis, prepared for a collision with China over Beijing's claims to the rocks, reefs, and resources of the South China Sea? For that is what Mike Pompeo appeared to threaten this week. "The world will not allow Beijing to treat the South China Sea as its maritime empire," thundered the secretary of state. "America stands with our Southeast Asian allies and partners in protecting their sovereign rights to offshore resources ... and [we] reject any push to impose 'might makes right' in the South China...

    A medical researcher and professor who had been working most recently at Ohio State University is facing federal charges in what prosecutors say was a sophisticated scheme to transfer U.S.-backed research to China. Song Guo Zheng, 57, of suburban Hilliard, and his research groups secured more than $4.3 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health for projects while receiving overlapping funding from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday in Columbus. Zheng worked in the division of rheumatology and immunology at OSU's Wexner Medical Center. When he was hired last year,...
  • Communist China’s Silent War Against America. For decades, CCP has been using 'unrestricted warfare' to weaken US from within

    Epoch Times ^ | 07/06/2020 | Bowen Xiao
    Stealthily, surreptitiously, and with sweeping precision, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began a decades-long war against America for world domination by utilizing a military strategy known as “unrestricted warfare” that continues today. Unbeknownst to most of the population, the CCP has infiltrated almost every major avenue of life in the United States - leaving virtually no industry untouched. While this threat has largely existed undetected, the effects it’s had on the nation, as well as its geopolitical consequences, are far-reaching. Skirting the traditional, direct military confrontation offensives that have become somewhat outdated in modern times, this unconventional strategy has become...

    Over the past several weeks, a series of "mystery explosions" has happened at very strategically sensitive locations inside Iran, and it has become obvious that what we are witnessing is not just a bunch of random accidents. For years, the Israeli government has pledged that the Iranians will never be allowed to develop nuclear weapons, and several of the sites where the mystery explosions have taken place have direct connections to Iran's nuclear program. For example, there was a very large explosion at Iran's Natanz uranium enrichment facility on July 2nd, and it is being reported that some officials believe...

    The work was done by lamplight, over a small kitchen table in North London. Night after night throughout the early months of 1934, Captain Fred Hill and his 13-year-old daughter Hazel burned the midnight oil, plotting graphs and labouring over complex algorithms. It was tiring, unrewarding work but they both sensed how vital it would prove to be.

    Since the city agreed to divert up to a billion dollars in NYPD funding Tuesday, the #OccupyCityHall protest has waned at City Hall Park - yet some protesters are sticking around, insisting that they are “prepared for war” if they’re told to leave. Participants in the continuing #OccupyCityHall sleep-in at City Hall on Centre Street are now preparing for an anticipated clash with police as an exit strategy similar to that of the Occupy Wall Street encampment in 2011. At that time, the protestors who took up residence in Zuccotti Park on Broadway and Liberty Street at that time were...

    Australia will build a larger and more aggressive military focused on its immediate backyard, including new long-range missiles, signalling a major shift in the nation's defence strategy. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison unveiled a greater focus on the Indo-Pacific region, warning Australia needs to prepare for a post-COVID-19 world that is "poorer, more dangerous and more disorderly". Mr Morrison also announced a commitment to spend $270 billion over the next decade on defence capabilities, including more potent strike weapons, cyber capabilities and a high-tech underwater surveillance system. Over the next decade the Australian Defence Force (ADF) is expected to...

    Are we heading for the Bible’s great end-time conflict? We appear to be approaching yet more choppy waters in Israel’s turbulent history. The Jewish state’s proposed ‘annexation’ of the Jordan Valley, along with parts of Judea and Samaria – otherwise known as the West Bank despite being the heart of ancient Israel – is causing hackles to rise once again among the nations. This includes Britain who insist on sticking to their longstanding Foreign Office mantra of pushing for a ‘two-state solution’ – even though there is no evidence whatsoever that it will work, or indeed that it is justifiable....
