Go ahead and scream that I don’t have proof.
That’s fine.Everyone is entitled to their opinion; even if it’s uninformed.
But facts are peculiar things.
They come together over time, and will prove what they will prove.
And facts are, ultimately, immune to opinions and the people who hold them.
I’m simply pointing out that something unusual is happening, and giving folks a peek behind the presumptive veil at what may really be going on. As I said in my previous article, very irregular builds in both crude and refined petroleum have been running at DOE strategic reserve facilities since January (perhaps as early as last November). and the push to refine such a massive build in reserves places a ‘horizon of action’ on their purpose.
Now what I did not say previously, is that there are other indicators, just as clear and just as sound, that FED.GOV is preparing for a massive engagement of war — and not some piddly little scrum like what the American public has seen over the past twenty five years, and been told is “a war”.
I.E. The US navy has, since the beginning of the year, engaged in numerous exercises which they haven’t performed in years – specifically, live training of sailors in how to transfer munitions and fuel to aircraft carriers and destroyers while at sea and under way… this was a regular occurrence in the cold-war era, but over the last 20 years almost every transfer of fuel and munitions had occurred either in dock, or at least while at anchor and under placid conditions.
Add to that the fact that munitions by the millions are being pushed forward, from storage depots across the nation specifically toward primary naval facilities. E.G. the Anniston Army Depot [Anniston, AL – Lat/Lon +33.621747, -85.963636], which is the long-term home of tens of millions of artillery shells and aerial bombs manufactured during and before the Viet Nam era, is suddenly shipping trainloads of munitions to Blount Island, FL [LAT/LON +30.403309, -81.520471] and to the North Charleston Army/Navy Terminal [LAT/LON +32.910910, -79.972752] It’s of particular interest to note that the Department of Defense has, both at Jacksonville (UTC Aerospace) and Charleston (Raytheon), facilities for up-fitting regular old 500LB aerial bombs into JDAMs – the current standard in “Smart Bomb” technology.
So, trainloads of old bombs are being pushed forward to Naval depots and refitted into JDAMS by the thousand, at facilities which have heavy docks for naval logistics vessels to take aboard such tonnage quickly and easily. Every train-car, fixed tank, and ship which can carry diesel and aviation fuel is being filled to the brim by the DoD as part of our swelling “strategic petroleum reserve”, and further, we’re ‘poking the dragon’ with “The Biggest Naval Exercise Ever” and engaging our “allies” from 26+ nations in this massive act of military flatulence. “Allies” who are China’s neighbors.
“Allies” who will indeed run back to their red mamma and tell her that – “Americans are making ready for big war; very big war; many, many ships; every ship full of fuel, and very best munitions. They practice not just bombing, but also invading and landing massive ground forces. It look like they coming to take islands back from momma China before too long.”
And this isn’t even the half of it. The entire Naval Expeditionary Combat Command [which pResident Bush  suggested eliminating as “redundant”] has, for the last 7 weeks, been at the center of the largest Naval exercise ever undertaken –
160710-N-IY142-078 JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM (July 10, 2016) Sailors assigned to 2nd Navy Expeditionary Logistics Regiment conduct a simulated disaster relief supply offload from the General Frank S. Besson-class Logistics Support Vessel, Lieutenant General William B. Bunker (LSV 4) at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam during Rim of the Pacific 2016. Twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 30 to Aug. 4, in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world’s largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity that helps participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world’s oceans. RIMPAC 2016 is the 25th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (http://www.public.navy.mil/necc/Pages/default.aspx)
So the US is, politically, financially, and militarily tweaking the nose of Russia and China, at a time when all the developed economies are desperately flagging… and the desperate economic stagnation around the world is yet another sign of impending war, because NOTHING causes more spending than a real, full-scale, fully involved war effort….
WE HAVE BEEN WARNED
Author’s Note: I’ve given LAT/LON to the named facilities – take a look on Google-Earth at each of them, and you can see lots of activity, and Anniston has a good deal of new construction on and directly adjacent to the Depot, also. Looking at the point I have specified for the Anniston Depot – notice that there is a rather short train (18 freight cars) on the siding there, but that it has THREE full-sized locomotives – indicating that whatever it is hauling is exceptionally heavy, as in MUNITIONS heavy.
