America Spread Thin: North America, April 2018

These are just a few of the military operations happening across the North American region for the Gregorian month of April, 2018.

Canada: USS Pearl Harbor arrived in Victoria, British Columbia 12APR2018.  Commander Ben Miller stated “This visit helps to demonstrate the continuing commitment the U.S. has to our long-standing and important relationship with Canada……   the port visit gives the crew of Pearl Harbor a chance for some rest and relaxation…”  That taxpayer funded R&R includes visits to the Craigdarroch Castle, British Columbia Parliament buildings, Butchart Gardens, Fisherman’s Warf Park and the Fisgard Lighthouse.

El Salvador: Video previewing operation Beyond the Horizon scheduled for May, in which lots of U.S. tax dollars will be spent on El Salvador. The video shows U.S. taxpayer funded activities from previous Beyond the Horizon operations:

Taxpayer funded USAF delivered a fire truck and ambulance to Tecpan, Guatemala, 20APR2018, as part of the evil USAID (United States Agency for International Development) Denton Program.  Supposedly the vehicles were paid for by religious organization Mission of Love Foundation.  As of March 2018, ‘christian’ Mission of Love Foundation, via USAID’s taxpayer funded Denton Program, has conducted 60 ‘missions’ to Guatemala: “We work on five continents with an all-volunteer force….. With a group of volunteers, the Denton Program and the Air Force together are making this possible for those in need. I couldn’t do it alone. I am just a facilitator.”-Kathleen Price, Mission of Love Foundation

Haiti: On 07APR2018, the U.S. Coast Guard captured and repatriated about 50 migrants from Haiti.

Mexico: Leaders of the Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional met with U.S. Army North (Fifth Army) as well as Arizona, New Mexico and Texas National Guards, along with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, in Tucson, Arizona: “We not only have the huge responsibility as customs and border protection, we need this to be a team effort with U.S. Army North, Deptartment of Defense, Mexico and other agencies. By coming together we are able to exponentially provide security and safety for citizens in Mexico and the U.S.”-Juventino F. Pacheco, Assistant Chief Patrol Agent, Foreign Operations Branch, Tucson Sector Border Patrol  (THE WALL IS GOING UP, U.S. TAXPAYERS ARE FUNDING IT!)

United States:

So much for ObamaCare, operation Arctic Care involves U.S. regular forces, Alaska National Guard and British empire Canadian military forces providing taxpayer funded medical help to ‘underserved regions’ of Alaska.

This is not a CBRN drill, on 11APR2018 several nuke waste drums exploded at the U.S. Navy’s Idaho National Laboratory. Initially it was reported as one drum, but a week later it was revealed that at least three more drums exploded.  The nuke waste is said to have come to Idaho from Rocky Flats Plant in  Colorado, in the 1960s.  Contractor Fluor Idaho stated that the decades old waste had just been re-packed into 55-gallon drums the morning of the explosions. The latest nuke waste explosions are significant because the explosions at New Mexico’s WIPP (in 2014) might have involved nuke waste packaged at the Idaho National Laboratory.

World War 3: U.S., U.K., France go to war against Syria! Russia warns of “immediate” response!

11APR2018 (02:26 UTC-07 Tango 06)  22 Farvardin 1397/25 Rajab 1439/26 Bing-Chen 4716

“I don’t want to sound apocalyptic, we are not there yet. But we are moving in that direction.”-Andrei Kortunov, Russian International Affairs Council

“As the Defense Ministry has already pointed out, the Russian military bases in Hmeymim and Tartus are under firm protection. At the same time, we expect that in the event of US strikes, if any, the lives of our servicemen will not be in danger. I think that the United States understands this and will not allow it, because otherwise, Russia’s response will be immediate, as the chief of the Russian General Staff has said.”-Yevgeny Serebrennikov, First Deputy Chairman of Russian Upper House Defense Committee

“Russia has warned U.S. representatives, both publicly and via corresponding channels, including military ones, about serious consequences that might follow possible strikes, if Russian citizens are hurt in such strikes, accidentally or not.”-Vladimir Chizhov, Russian Permanent Representative to the European Union

France24: Macron, Trump agree toxic gas used in Syria, vow ‘strong, joint response’

After a failed attempt to get a United Nations Security Council resolution against Syria (and now that it’s clear their dog of war Islamic State is dead), United States, United Kingdom and France join to possibly conduct airstrikes against Syria. 

Donald Trump suddenly canceled Latin America trip  to “oversee the American response to Syria”

France claims they got the support of Saudi Arabia: “If our alliance with our partners requires it, we will be present.”-Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman 

The European Union has warned all airliners to avoid the eastern Mediterranean airspace for the next 72 hours.

For proof this is a False Flag excuse to overthrow the Syrian government, the overwhelming number of children maimed and killed in the western instigated Syrian ‘civil war’ are the result of conventional bullets and bombs, yet where is the outraged military response from western governments?  The number of children hurt or killed by unproven chemical attacks is a sliver of a fraction of casualties caused by conventional weapons, yet the western powers have a hissy fit every time and launch airstrikes: “All the geniuses tell us Assad killed those children. But do they really know that? Of course, they don’t really know that. They are making it up. They have no real idea what happened. How would it benefit Assad using chlorine gas last weekend? Well, it wouldn’t. Assad’s forces have been winning the war in Syria. The administration just announced to pull American troops out of Syria…..That’s good news for Assad. And the only thing he could do to reverse it and hurt himself would be to use the poison gas against children.”-Tucker Carlson, Fox News

Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya made a similar statement, except much more succinct than Tucker Carlson’s, saying “A provocation was what militants badly needed to receive support from the United States and other Western countries.”

“Trump’s cheap shot against Iran, which has consistently condemned use of chemical weapons by anyone & is itself the victim of their use by Saddam with U.S. support, is hypocritical. His threats to repeat impulsive acts of aggression is symptomatic of U.S. policy helping extremists.”-Mohammad Javad Zarif, Foreign Minister of Iran

Syrian news media reporting that on 10APR2018, U.S. helicopters evacuated leaders of DAIISH (Islamic State) near al-Shadadi city in Hasaka Province: “The sources said that the evacuation took place at 11pm on Monday at a gas station in the area of Tal al-Shayer in which the perpetrators of the evacuation staged a fake battle with live fire before the helicopters took off, taking three Iraqi Daesh leaders with their families to an unknown destination….. a civilian was martyred and others were injured.  During the past few months, Washington transported many foreign Daesh leaders from the eastern region in Syria in order to re-employ them to implement new aggressive plans both in Syria and abroad.”

China opposes military action before a legitimate investigation is made. 

Los Angeles Times: Syria will allow inspectors at site of suspected chemical attack 

“Definitely, this crime will not remain without a response.”-Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, regarding Israel’s latest airstrike in Syria which killed Iranians

“The Foreign Ministry condemns the air raids launched at the Syrian Arab Republic and affirms its previous position that Lebanon’s airspace should not be used to attack Syria. Lebanon will make a formal complaint with the UN Security Council.”-Foreign Ministry of Lebanon regarding the latest Israeli airstrike on Syria

In Syria, a U.S. Master Sergeant was killed by a land mine (‘roadside bomb’) along with a British empire Red Coat.  U.S. ops in Syria began under the Obama regime.  Up until now the United Kingdom’s monarchy controlled Ministry of Defence refused to confirm that Red Coats were operating in Syria. The incident apparently happened the same day that U.S. president Donald Trump stated, at a rally in Ohio, “We’re knockin’ the hell outta ISIS, we’ll be coming outta there very soon. Let the other people take care of it now.”

NATO Turkey joins Russia? Where’s western outrage over Turkey going nuclear?

05APR2018 (00:30 UTC-07 Tango 06)  16 Farvardin 1397/19 Rajab 1439/20 Bing-Chen 4716

Not only has Turkey given up on its attempt to join the European Union (EU) but it’s looking more and more like Turkey is about to get the hell outta NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).

On 04APR2018 Iran, Russia and Turkey held a tripartite summit to discuss what will happen to Syria, now that DAIISH is defeated.  U.S. president Donald Trump didn’t attend the conference and simply stated that the United States would be leaving Syria “very soon” (which seemed to be news to the Department of State and Department of Defense).

U.S. news media made sure the taxpayers of United States knew about the Syria Conference that didn’t involve the U.S., but failed to mention things like Turkey buying Russian made weapon systems and even getting help from Russia to go nuclear.

Turkey’s own news media reported that not only is Turkey buying the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, but that Russia will attempt to deliver it sooner than originally agreed to. This happened the day before the tripartite summit concerning Syria, and it should be noted that NATO administrators complained that Turkey never told them about the deal with Russia saying “We have relayed our concerns to Turkish officials regarding the potential purchase of the S-400.” 

Ground breaking for the Akkuyu power plant, 03APR2018

They also made a deal concerning the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant project, with Russian president Vladimir Putin saying its was a new level of cooperation between Turkey and Russia.

You could partly blame the new partnership on the increasing ‘western’ sanctions against Russia, because that new level of cooperation is being motivated by money: “Russia has become the third export market for Turkey after Germany and China. Turkey has become our seventh basic commercial partner.”-Russian president Vladimir Putin

“Our trade volume has surpassed $22 billion dollars with a 32% increase, according to our calculations compared to the previous year. Our goal is to reach $100 billion.”-Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Also in the works are two natural gas pipelines from Russia to Turkey, called TurkStream.  One of the lines is meant to circumvent NATO controlled Ukraine to provide Europe with much needed gas.

“When we first arrived in Afghanistan, the task force was already established and halfway through its rotation. We were like a puzzle piece replacing the Utah Army National Guard. When the 101st arrived to assume the mission from the 82nd, we had been in country for four months and went from being the newbies to the subject matter experts for the new task force.”-Major Nicole Washington recalling her 2012-13 Afghan adventure, when she was known as Captain Nicole Smith

This happened in 2013, but only now is it being told, perhaps because ‘traditionalists’ would consider it a true sign that America is Spread Thin.

Alpha Company-1-168th General Support Aviation Battalion-Idaho Army National Guard deployed to Afghanistan in 2012, it was commanded by Captain Nicole Smith (now Major Nicole Washington) and its was a first for The Gem State militia.

The company flew UH-60A/L Black Hawks.  On 14JAN2013, two Black Hawks with all female crews took off on a Task Force Shadow mission. It was a first for Task Force Shadow: “It was an honor to participate in that mission, not just because it was all females, but because of what it meant to be able to have the freedom to do so. To have that crew combination of all women flying a combat mission in a land where some of the local women aren’t allowed to drive or even sit in the front seat of a car, much less fly a helicopter… it was the unspoken message behind the mission that meant so much to all of us.”-Major Nicole Washington recalling her Afghan adventure, when she was known as Captain Nicole Smith

Gov’na Butch Otter named the Alpha Company-1-168th General Support Aviation Battalion the outstanding unit of the year upon their return to Idaho in 2013.

“Everyone had a great attitude. Everyone worked hard and long hours for the success of the company. There were no egos, just a desire to see the company succeed and for everyone to come home safe, and we did it together”-Major Nicole Washington

It wasn’t the first time Nicole Smith/Washington was in Afghanistan, she deployed in 2007 with Idaho’s 1-183d Aviation Battalion’s AH-64 Apache gunships.
