Expanding U.S. Strikes to ISIS in Syria, Has Obama Opened New Phase of "Perpetual War"? The United States has launched airstrikes in Syria targeting the Islamic State, as well as members of a separate militant organization known as the Khorasan group. The Pentagon says U.S. forces launched 47 Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles from warships in the Red Sea and North Arabian Gulf. In addition, U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps fighters, bombers and drones took part in the airstrikes. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 20 Islamic State fighters were killed in strikes that hit at least 50 targets in Raqqa and Deir al-Zor provinces in Syria's east. The United States says Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had either participated or supported the strikes against the Islamic State, which has seized swaths of Syria and Iraq. The United States acted alone against the Khorasan group, saying it "took action to disrupt the imminent attack plotting against the ...

I can vouch for this after working in Saudi Arabia for four years. This came from a Lockheed employee who has had 3 assignments to Saudi Arabia. Worth the read! During the pilot transition program with the KV-107 and C-130 with Lockheed, we found that most Saudi pilot trainees had very limited night vision, even on the brightest of moonlit nights. Their training retention rate was minimal including maintenance personnel. Some had dim memories and had to be constantly reminded of things that were told to them the day before. An American, British or any other western instructor is burned out pretty quick. It actually took Muslim C-130 pilots years before they could fly in the dark safely and then would be reluctant to leave the lights of a city. Ask any Marine, Air Force or Army guy who’s been trying to train Iraqis, and especially Afghans. Islam is not only a religion; it's a way of life all the way around. Yet another set of revealing facts about Muslim beliefs and traditions and ways of life. 1400 year ...
THE Air Load Team (ALT) in Kandahar has completed its biggest single lift of the year with the final Kalmar Container Loader packed on a C-17 Globemaster for transport to Al Minhad Air Base. The 45.5-tonne machine, used for logistical and redeployment efforts at the logistics node at Kandahar Air Field, was transported to Australia’s base in the United Arab Emirates as it is no longer required for use in Afghanistan as part of the current train, advise and assist mission. Flying Officer Carrie Fettes, Air Load Team Officer-in-Charge, said the lift was a little different from the norm of moving cargo, trunks and explosive ordnance between Kandahar, Kabul and Al Minhad Air Base. “Yesterday was a very big load with the Kalmar, a very large piece of equipment, that is used to move shipping containers around different locations,” she said. “Kalmar weighs approximately 100,000 pounds (45.5 tonnes), that load inside the aircraft requires about 40 chains to ensure it remains secure and to ensure the aircr ...
Shamsi Airfield, also known as Bhandari Airstrip, is an airfield situated about 200 miles (320 km) southwest of Quetta and about 248 miles (400 km) northwest of Gwadar in the Balochistan province of Pakistan. The airfield is located in Washuk District and nestled in a barren desert valley between two ridges of the Central Makran Range approximately 21 miles (35 km) southeast of the village of Washuk. Shrouded in secrecy, Shamsi was leased by Pakistan to the United Arab Emirates in 1992 for game hunting purposes and, between 20 October 2001 and 11 December 2011, it was leased to the United States for use as a base for joint Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and United States Air Force (USAF) surveillance and drone operations (particularly those involving Predator drones) against militants in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas.
Revealed: 116 stolen animals are in Qatar BY FLORIAN KAIJAGE 17th June 2012 Govt team to leave soon for Doha The Qatari military plane used to smuggle live animals in 2010 on the tarmac at the Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA). The government’s search for the whereabouts of 116 live wild animals and 16 birds alleged to have been smuggled out of the country in November 2010 is gaining momentum as a team of government officials is set to visit Qatar, in the United Arab Emirates, for the purpose. The team’s mission is to establish where the animals are being kept and propose measures to be taken to ensure the animals are returned to the country. This development comes following Tanzania’s receipt of a response from the Qatari office of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) which confirmed that the said 116 animals and birds were indeed in the emirate. Both Tanzania and Qatar have signed and ratified the convention, which has been in place since 1975. Minister for Nat ...
U.S. Battle Plan for Iran Requires Mission-Capable F-22s Deployment by the U.S. Air Force of F-22 stealth fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates should play an important role in the Pentagon’s contingency plan for Iran. An unspecified number of the planes – possibly six – will fly out of Al-Dafra Air Base in the UAE, just 200 miles from the Iran border. Although the Raptors, built by Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Boeing (BA), could play a key role in executing the Pentagon’s new “Air Sea Battle” strategy against Iran if hostilities erupt and help reopen a closed Strait of Hormuz, the Air Force must first resolve safety questions about the plane before it can be considered mission capable.

America's most sophisticated stealth jet fighters have been quietly deployed to an allied base less than 200 miles from Iran's mainland, according to an industry report, but the Air Force adamantly denied the jets' presence is a threat to the Middle East nation. (Oh! are we "Dumb *** ) Multiple stealth F-22 Raptors, which have never been combat-tested, are in hangars at the United Arab Emirates' Al Dafra Air Base, just a short hop over the Persian Gulf from Iran's southern border, the trade publication Aviation Week reported. That should send many of the Muslim Scum-bags prostrating on their filthy prayer blankets.
"An innocuous-seeming U.S. Air Force press release. A serendipitous satellite image in Google Earth. Snapshots from a photographer on assignment at a Spanish air base. The crash of an Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle fighter-bomber in the United Arab Emirates. These are some of the fragments of information that Italian aviation blogger David Cenciotti has assembled to reveal the best picture yet of the Pentagon’s secretive war in the Arabian Peninsula and East Africa. In a series of blog posts over the past two weeks, Cenciotti has described in unprecedented detail the powerful aerial force helping wage Washington’s hush-hush campaign of air strikes, naval bombardments and commando raids along the western edge of the Indian Ocean, including terror hot spots Yemen and Somalia. Cenciotti outlined the deployment of eight F-15Es from their home base in Idaho to the international air and naval outpost at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, north of Somalia."
Several U.S. military officials say while it’s not the primary intention, the exercise is meant to be noticed by Syria and Iran especially. The message: even with the United States out of Iraq, and winding up the war in Afghanistan, there is a formidable U.S. presence in the region, and other countries are capable of filling in the gaps. The U.S. Navy already is keeping two aircraft carriers in the next-door Persian Gulf region, and stepping up the presence of minesweepers in those waters. The Air Force has sent half a dozen F-22 fighters to the United Arab Emirates. The Joint Special Operations Command has conducted several deadly drone strikes against al Qaeda in Yemen. But Eager Lion is taking it one step further. Marines will train in southern Jordan on their amphibious landing and warfare skills. But there will also be a number of the most elite U.S. Special Operations troops, training with Jordanian special forces units in counterterrorism and other assault operations.

US Military Drills Day One After Strike On Iran, Deploys F-22s To Gulf US Navy, Air Force, ground, intelligence and special forces units based at home, in Europe and the Middle East, took part this week in a special exercise ordered by President Barack Obama to simulate reactions to a potential US-Israel strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, debkafile’s exclusive military and Washington sources report. Sunday, April 22, the US also transferred a number of advanced stealth F-22 fighter bombers, believed to be from the 302nd Fighter Squadron 302, from the joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska to the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates. According to our sources, the F-22 jets will join the F-15s of the Massachusetts Air National Guard’s 104th Fighter Wing which were transferred to the Al Udeid base a month ago. Their mission will be to destroy the Iranian air force and air defense batteries so as to clear the way for US and Israeli bombers to go into action against Iran’s nuclear sites ...
The Air Force did not specify the exact number or location of the recently-deployed F-22 Raptors, but confirmed that they had been sent to a base in Southwest Asia, a region that includes the UAE. “Such deployments strengthen military-to-military relationships, promote sovereign and regional security, improve combined tactical air operations and enhance interoperability of forces, equipment and procedures,” said Air Force spokesman Capt. Phil Ventura. Numerous reports assert that the planes have been deployed in the United Arab Emirates, just 200 miles from Iran's mainland.
U.S. Centcom commander Gen. David Petraeus said last week that the United Arab Emirates, a key U.S. ally in the Persian Gulf, has the capability to overpower Iran's Air Force.
