The US will allow weaponized drones by the year 2017. Russia signs agreement with India for the S400, Iran completes its delivery of the S-300. The new version of the missile, a formal contract for which is likely to be signed at the bilateral meet with Russia in Goa between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Vladimir Putin, will be the first major upscaling of the Brahmos joint venture signed in 1998. Russia has also announced that an agreement on S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft missile system will also be signed on Saturday at the summit.
Presidential aide Yuri Ushakov was quoted in Russian reports as saying that a contract would be inked. India has a Rs 39,000-crore plan to acquire the S-400 system that will severely restrict Pakistan air force’s ability to operate even within its own airspace. Government sources have told ETthat talks on the new version of the Brahmos was finalised after months of discussion and it would figure as a prominent example of military cooperation at the summit. Besides, India and Russia are also set to formalise a new joint venture between HAL and Kamov to manufacture a new series of light military choppers.
The US has F16 ready to strike in Djibouti. USS Mason fires tomahawk missiles at the Houthi radar stations. Iran deploys warships off the coast of Yemen. Iraq prepares for a major offensive in Mosul. The moderate rebels shelled a market place. Russia agrees to let the rebels and terrorists out of Aleppo. Kerry and Lavrov try for peace once again. Russian embassy continually hit in Syria. The royal airforce gives permission to pilots to fire on Russian jets if they think they might be fired upon.
Fighter planes, drones, bombers, even submarines and surface warships could see heavy losses in the first days and weeks of a big war. Other hardware may prove obsolete or vulnerable to enemy action and require immediate replacement or abandonment. Most of these complex platforms require months or years to produce. Warm production lines with readily available manufacturing materials must be available to accelerate production quickly. There may be some lessons to be learned from the rapid production of MRAPs at the height of the IED threat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Further, the services should inventory their boneyards to identify what systems could be rapidly reconfigured for combat use with some advanced preparation.
This is a major strategic gap that may not be able to be filled before a big war starts, because it is psychological in nature. The military and the nation must both be mentally and emotionally prepared for large numbers of dead and wounded troops — and possibly civilians, too. Big wars tend to be bloodily indiscriminate toward both. Hundreds and perhaps thousands of killed and wounded may be incurred in hours and days rather than months and years; generals may no longer be able to carry slim packets of index cards with their names and stories as has become common practice in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Bloody mindedness” among fighting generals and admirals may once again become a necessary war-winning attribute — in stark contrast to recent limited wars.

The United States, of course, is deeply involved in these initiatives. Not only will it supply many of the troops for the four multinational battalions, but it is also taking many steps of its own to bolster NATO’s eastern flank. Spending on the Pentagon’s “European Reassurance Initiative” will quadruple, climbing from $789 million in 2016 to $3.4 billion in 2017. Much of this additional funding will go to the deployment, on a rotating basis, of an additional armored-brigade combat team in northern Europe.
As a further indication of US and NATO determination to prepare for a possible war with Russia, the alliance recently conducted the largest war games in Eastern Europe since the end of the Cold War. Known as Anakonda 2016, the exercise involved some 31,000 troops (about half of them Americans) and thousands of combat vehicles from 24 nations in simulated battle maneuvers across the breadth of Poland. A parallel naval exercise, BALTOPS 16, simulated “high-end maritime warfighting” in the Baltic Sea, including in waters near Kaliningrad, a heavily defended Russian enclave wedged between Poland and Lithuania.
Not trying to scare anyone here but these are some serious questions to consider — if the U.S. is truly on the brink of a major war that most of the U.S. probably doesn’t expect anytime soon. Maybe it’s time for the U.S. to wake up and realize that we may truly be on the brink of war — a war of Biblical proportions.
It’s also a good time to start praying — even if it’s the first time in your life.
Prepping for Long Term Survival
The electrical grid goes down. For good. You need a power source. Like solar. You need food and water and essential emergency supplies … And you need to put serious thought into weapons for hunting and self defense.
You also need a survival plan with a number of specific objectives. You see, once the grid goes down, you may only have weeks … or just days … or just minutesbefore enemy planes thunder overhead. Everyone needs to be prepared for that. Unfortunately, another world war is inevitable. You better weapon-up and start studying about food preservation and which foods to start stockpiling on.
Stock up on the following items today to get your prepper pantry ready for the next extended emergency:
Flour (white, whole wheat)
Seasonings (vanilla, salt, pepper, paprika, cinnamon, pepper, taco seasoning, etc.)
Whole grains (barley, bulgur, cornmeal, couscous, oats, quinoa, rice, wheat berries)
Nonfat dried milk
Plant-based oil (corn oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, olive oil)
Seeds for eating and sprouting
Instant potato flakes
Packaged meals (macaroni and cheese, hamburger helper, Ramen noodles, etc.)
Purified drinking water
Canned fruits, vegetables, meats, and soups

One of the best ideas suggested through The Lost Ways is the construction of bunkers. These bunkers have the potential to stand the impact created by the most devastating earthquake or missile attack. On the other hand, the readers will be able to learn how to preserve their food in a natural manner. They can also get to know about effective tips, which can be used to preserve the precious water supplies. Then we will be able to use them in the case of a disaster to survive.
First of all, The Lost Ways would convince readers that the natural disasters are inevitable. It will give them an excellent insight about the disasters that could take place in the future. Therefore, it is extremely important for all the human beings to stay prepared to face a disaster, which could happen at any given point of time. In the second part of this book, the readers will be able to discover the lessons learned by humanity when they encountered disasters in the past. Every disaster teaches us a lesson, and it is better to have a clear understanding of these lessons as they can be helpful in the future.
