Hybrid Warfare is Dangerous
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 2/13/2018 11:02:50 PM

The death by airstrike of a large number of Russian "mercenary troops" allegedly attacking a US backed position in Syria is reminder that hybrid/proxy/low-intensity conflict is not without risk. The New York Times described the scale of the incident. "Aleksandr Ionov, a Russian businessman working in Syria offering security and other services ... estimated after conversations with associates in several private military organizations that more than 200 Russians might have been killed. ... not all those killed were Russian: Some of the paid fighters came from other countries that were once part of the Soviet Union."

God bless President Trump. If the Hussein Lap Dancer had been Prez, there would have been 200 dead Americans instead of 200 dead Russian mercs.

The media who´s been ginning up taxpayer funded war with Russia should be thrilled with news the US or US backed forces killed 200+ Russian soldiers in Syria. Even Trump administration personnel such as Tillerson, Pompeo, and Jeanette Manfra from DHS continue to flog lies about Russia, claiming without evidence that Russia hacked the 2016 election and that it will definitely try to hack the 2018 midterms. Ms. Manfra is especially contemptuous as she conflates terms like scan, target, manipulate, and hack. Tillerson statements broadcast on Fox News are potentially slanderous as he said US voting system (run by states) is unprepared for what Russia will do in the next election. The national Secs. of State group has already objected to Ms. Manfra continually saying Russia ´actually penetrated´ several states. They say there were no Russia ´penetrations´ with possible exception of some voter lists in Illinois. Has anyone demanded a recount of Illinois? 63 million Trump voters voted for detente with Russia. Apparently, Trump didn´t win.

200 dead Russian mercs? Had they been under Russian military command we might be talking about 20,000.

Screwing with the US military is very, very dangerous. We are the most lethal military the planet has ever seen. Oppose us at your peril,
Almost two companies wiped out.

Well done, US troops.

Perhaps the Russians will tread more carefully next time.

What a convoluted and confusing article. I´m more confused after reading it than before. Richard again preaches the Russians interfered in 2016 elections and are preparing to do so again(as usual, without a shred of evidence) which is exacerbating the situation in Syria. After quoting the WaPo without question, Richie digs into Trump as being aloof and paralyzed by Washington gridlock.

There is hardly one thing accurate in this flop of an article. Everything written here could have been written by a 10-year-old and no one could tell the difference. Pool little Richard is obviously out of his league here, yet that didn´t stop him from dragging out his crayons and opining on a subject he´s obviously clueless on. Sorry to be so negative here, but this was an important area for concern well worth a strong investigation. Too bad you won´t find it in this article.

After a prominent Hillsborough County developer died last month in North Carolina, word spread it was a heart attack that claimed his life. But records from that state show the death of William "Bill" Bishop was much more complicated. His 16-year-old son reported finding Bishop in their home April 18 with a dog leash wrapped around his neck, the dog still attached, according to a search warrant affidavit filed in Durham, N.C. Police there are investigating Bishop’s death as suspicious. No charges have been filed. Several dog leashes were removed from the home, along with a computer and an iPhone belonging to Bishop’s son.

In his new book, James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, says “of course” Russian activity swung the election to Donald Trump. The left is treating this speculation, almost certainly driven by animus towards President Trump, as immensely important. For example, Rachel Maddow said, ahead of her interview with Clapper: “The immediate past director of national intelligence, who was director of national intelligence during the Russian attack on the election says he has ‘no doubt’ the Russian attack ‘swung the election to a Trump win.” (Emphasis added) But Clapper and Maddow are being

The theme of foreign intervention in American elections just got bigger after Judy Woodruff recently tweeted that "James Clapper ... personally concluded Russians not only influenced but DECIDED outcome of 2016 election." The statement comes from Clapper´s forthcoming book, portions of which have been read aloud on TV. (Snip) Whether or not the reader believes this the fact is that outside interference is now a hot topic in Washington. Foreign threats to to the political system are not confined to the US.

TAMPA — The three people accused in the street racing death of a 24-year-old Ohio woman have been released on bail while police continue to investigate the crash along Bayshore Boulevard. Tristan Christopher Herrin, 20, a passenger in the car that fatally struck an Ohio woman on Wednesday, was released from the Hillsborough County jail around 3 a.m. after posting $500 bail on a misdemeanor charge of racing, jail records show. He was the passenger in a black 2018 Ford Mustang that was driven by his brother, 18-year-old Cameron Herrin, who hours later was released after posting $10,000 bail. Cameron Herrin and 17-year-old

During recent testimony before the House Education and the Workforce Committee, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said that “the issue of reporting undocumented students is a ‘school decision’ and ‘local community decision,’ adding that ‘we have laws and we also are compassionate.´” That is an accurate, well-balanced statement: for better or worse, Americans do not have a legal duty to aid law enforcement. But it wasn’t good enough for the American Civil Liberties Union, which tweeted: "Any school that reports a child to @ICEgov would violate the Constitution. SCOTUS has made clear that every child in

In March, Attorney General Sessions wrote to three Republican congressman, declining to appoint a special counsel in the matter of the FBI, CIA, Obama administration and... and... frankly, I don´t know what to call it, since there is so much from the Clinton Foundation to the emails to the FISA court to who knows what.... because, the AG said, a special counsel necessitated "extraordinary circumstances." I sympathized somewhat with Sessions at the time. Special counsels do not have the best track records. Often they are appointed for dubious politicized reasons.

Total Collapse in Reuters Poll a Secret

On Monday, Reuters/Ipsos announced that the Democratic Party´s strong lead on the generic ballot question, which had remained stable for most of 2018, had rapidly collapsed over the prior week. The #BlueWave narrative -- the media´s all-but-concluded assumption that Democrats would retake the House of Representatives from the GOP in November -- has largely been based on the state of the generic ballot poll. So you might assume the media tasked with covering the 2018 midterm elections would immediately react to a sudden shift in the most important metric available for predicting the most important outcome of those

Among the real-life Norwegian phenomena made gentle fun of in the 2012-14 Netflix series Lilyhammer, starring Steven Van Zandt as a New York mobster who has moved to Norway under the Witness Protection Program, were natteravnene -- the “night ravens,” groups of unarmed citizen volunteers, including little old ladies, who patrol the night streets to talk wayward youths out of breaking the law. The concept is a quaint one, originating in a time when virtually all crimes committed in the middle of the Norwegian night were petty misdemeanors and when the perpetrators were Norwegian kids who, if confronted on the

One of the worst features of both wind and solar energy is that they are terrible for the environment. Land-based wind turbines are bad enough, but offshore installations are a fiasco waiting to happen. Steve Goreham writes at Watts Up With That? "Several eastern US states are planning major investments in offshore wind. Wind turbines are touted as clean, green, and economically sound. But experience from around the world shows that offshore wind systems are both expensive and at high risk for early system degradation.

European companies are leaving the Islamic Republic of Iran in droves fearing U.S. sanctions after President Donald Trump’s decided to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal earlier this month. The regime in Tehran is “particularly concerned by the decisions of various European companies to halt their Iranian operations until the future of sanctions was clear,” several German newspapers reported on Monday. “The cascade of decisions by EU companies to end their activities in Iran makes things much more complicated,” Iranian Foreign Minister said.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
