Closing Thought–05Jul18

I wrote earlier today about the promise of a “peace train”…..this post is what I was talking about with the “small” wars……

The US military is expanding its special ops….it is increasing the brigades to carry out advise and assist programs….

Three new Security Force Assistance Brigades designed to conduct advise-and-assist operations with allied and partner nations have been assigned to bases in Texas, Colorado and Washington, the Army announced Friday.

The Army said the 3rd Security Force Assistance Brigade will be assigned to Fort Hood in Texas, the 4th SFAB at Fort Carson in Colorado and 5th SFAB at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington. These specialized units consist of about 800 soldiers, ranked sergeant and above, with a primary mission to fulfill the Army’s train, advise and assist missions around the globe.

Is this an indication of a widening of our international involvements?

And then there is the new “Space Force”…how much money does the Pentagon have?  That we can just keep expanding our many ways to war……

Most interesting turn……will Space Force put a drain on this policy?

I hope everyone has a good day…..chuq

  1. It is those Special Forces that seem to be taking a lot of the casualties lately. I cannot see the logic behind increasing them personally.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Thank you Chuq! This is a very good information! I also thought that because of the things in Europe the US must be prepared. Our right-wing politicians say that there will soon be civil wars in Europe. I must now agree with this. Germany in particular will soon have problems. We have secured the pension system only until 2025. Three percent of the total german population has over 90% of total assets. All other beautiful things of the simple population are credit funded to 30 years and more. The so called “digitalisation” (of the industry) has been blocked since 2003, and Germany does not want migration, because they do not want a regime change. 😉 Best wishes, Michael
