Royal Navy Has ‘Woefully Low’ Total Of Ships, MoD Made ‘Extraordinary Mistakes’ – MPs

The Royal Navy has a “woefully low” number of ships available for overseas deployments, while cutting-edge vessels intended to replace the aging fleet are prone to engine and design failures, the parliamentary Defence Committee has warned.

The latest Defence Committee report, ‘Restoring the Fleet: Naval Procurement and the National Shipbuilding Strategy’, said the 19 destroyers and frigates currently operated by the Royal Navy fleet “is way below the critical mass required for the many tasks which could confront it.”

Rally in support to Russian military operation in Syria held outside embassy in London

The rally participants, who unfolded a huge banner in the colors of Russian flag, say that the British public should know that the Russian military do not pose any threat to anyone. "It upsets me to think that Russians don’t know that many English agreed with the Russian actions in fight against terrorist threat in Syria. So, my main aim was to show the Russian audience that many of us carry out the support of Russian actions," the participant Alan Bailey said. Also, Russia’s Ambassador to the UK Aleksander Yakovenko said speaking at the rally, "You know, there are accusations that we are bombing wrong targets. It is not true because several times I raised this question in the Foreign Office and I tell them that we need facts. If the right facts will be presented to us, we are to investigate. I would like to say that I still didn’t receive the answer to some requests. We hope that we will be successful in fighting against terrorism. It is very important that you are supporting us".

The Liberation of the Slaves

Donald Trump can find better Jewish allies than Zionists or liberal NWO Jews.

Donald Trump’s electoral victory unleashed pent-up tectonic energies on an unprecedented scale.

The world has been changed, much more than could be expected from any election of a US president. Just a short time has passed since election day, but it appears that the New World Order has received a shattering blow. There is a great feeling of freedom in the air, as if the vote broke the chains of a generation, and we suddenly found ourselves free.

Fall and Rise of the Forgotten ‘Deplorables’

We’re in for a few surprises, for better or worse...

As might be anticipated, in the wake of Trump’s historic victory — a win that for all sorts of reasons has shaken the Beltway establishment and beyond to its core, and one that political junkies will be fixating on for years — there’s been much handwringing about how so many folks got the outcome so wrong. All of this has been accompanied by the obligatory hyperventilating and existential angst about what Trump’s election portends for the future.

Amnesty: UK 'utterly disingenuous' about human rights in Bahrain

British ministers have acted like overexcited cheerleaders for Bahrain’s woefully inadequate human rights reforms, Amnesty International has said, ahead of an expected visit next month by Theresa May on the sidelines of the annual Gulf Cooperation Council summit.

Ministers ought to be confronting the awkward reality that the institutions set up in Bahrain with UK support “are seriously flawed and widely seen as a PR exercises”, Amnesty said.

The bodies, the ombudsman of the ministry of interior and the special investigations unit within the public prosecution, were established in 2012 following a fierce crackdown by the Bahraini government on protests the previous year.

The then foreign secretary Philip Hammond said Bahrain had been making significant reform, telling the House of Commons it was “a country which is travelling in the right direction”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the British government has been historically willing to "look the other way" on torture, when there's money to be made, right, House of Commons and House of Lords?!?

As reported at rt.com in September of 2015, regarding the British Arms Fair:

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Bahrain and the UAE will be among the countries participating in London's 2015 Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition next week. RT takes a look at this year’s potential biggest buyers, whose record has often stirred controversy. Customers at this year’s arms fair may not always see eye-to-eye on geopolitics, but one thing they do hold in common is a desire to keep their armories well stocked. Countries such as Bahrain and Israel need guns to put down the meddlesome elements within their borders, while nations like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates need arms to fight Houthi rebels in Yemen. Over the course of next week, military buyers from around the world will rub shoulders at the world’s biggest arms fair in London’s EXCEL exhibition center to shop around for the deadliest deals. This year’s DSEI will welcome some of the world’s most repressive regimes. Among the guests are Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Israel and the United Arab Emirates, all of which have been condemned for human rights abuses and violating international law.

And if the British and American governments were happy with what your weapons makers sold to these regimes, let me acquaint you with precisely what Saudi Arabia has been doing with these weapons against the people of Yemen: I am sure you are going to be just as happy with the following images:

Images of children killed by Saudi bombings in Yemen

Oh, and of course, there's that Saudi Naval blockade of Yemen, causing the slow, painful deaths of Yemeni children: if you liked the preceding image, you're gonna LOVE this one:

Images of dead and starving Yemeni children, 2016

Oh, and here's an image relating to current "human rights" in Bahrain:

Torture the norm in Bahrain to elicit confessions

So, to the UK and US government: these arms sales to despotic countries which attack schools, hospitals, open air markets, and kill kids, and torture political prisoners has made both governments complicit in war crimes.

I used to be very proud to be an American; but these days, being a citizen of a country addicted to pre-emptive wars; which tortures prisoners of war to obtain false confessions; which abets and enables countries which maim, murder, and torture civilians...this is not who I am, and not what I signed up for, as a citizen of the United States of America.

I think many of our readers will resonate with this thought.

What I have reported, in terms of the British government's glossing over Bahrain's atrocious human rights records, and the US/UK sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia, is no "conspiracy theory"; it is hard evidence and fact, documented by the images and information I have chosen to share with our readers today.

And to my American brothers and sisters, and my English cousins, let me say this; we have to work together, in the most peaceful ways possible, to end this enabling of despots around the world by our respective governments.

President-elect Donald Trump in his April 27 foreign policy speech, in which he said:

“My goal is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations. That’s why I also look and have to look for talented experts with approaches and practical ideas, rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect résumés but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war. We have to look to new people.

“We have to look to new people because many of the old people frankly don’t know what they’re doing, even though they may look awfully good writing in The New York Times or being watched on television.”

The Upcoming War On The Alternative Media By The Deep State Mainstream Media

This declaration of war was typified by Google and FaceBook

The Mainstream Media (“MSM”), fully owned and co-opted by the Deep State Plutocrat/ Oligarch Elite, are extremely unhappy that Donald Trump won the 2016 Election.

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

Trump Prepares to Take Over the Fed

Now their little party is coming to an end.

In Donald Trump’s first four years as president, he will not only choose three judges for the Supreme Court, he’ll also pick five of the seven members on the Fed Board of Governors. It would be impossible to overstate the effect this is going to have on the nation’s economic future. With both houses of Congress firmly in the GOP’s grip, we could see the most powerful central bank in the world transformed into a purely political institution that follows the diktats of one man.

Or, to put it in a vernacular that Trump might use, does he want to be “Paul Ryan’s bitch” on domestic policies? And does he want to surrender his foreign policy to the “wise guys” of Washington’s neocon establishment.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL CALLS FOR THE LEGALIZATION OF ALL DRUGS

Doctors have an “ethical responsibility” to back the legalization of drugs, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has advised for the first time.
An editorial in the BMJ, the UK’s most widely-read medical journal, argues that laws against drug use have harmed people across the world, while stressing that drug addiction should be viewed as a health problem and police involvement must end.

The BMJ says the “war on drugs” has failed and “too often plays out as a war on the millions of people who use drugs.”

The call for reform reflects a shift in medical opinion. In June, Britain’s two leading health bodies, the Royal Society for Public Health and the Faculty of Public Health, called for the personal use of drugs to be decriminalized.

The group said criminalizing users deters them from seeking medical help and leads to long-term harm, such as exposure to hard drugs in prison, the breakup of families, and loss of employment.

Finally, some potential sanity regarding the issue of drugs in the UK!!
