    With the United States Supreme Court poised to undo fifty years of judicial precedent by reversing its landmark 1973 Roe versus Wade ruling, which guaranteed access to abortion as a constitutional right, anxiety is surging among Americans who may lose their bodily autonomy at the whim of the Court's right-wing majority. But the impact of the Court's forthcoming decision will not just be felt on Main Street. Women enlisted in the American Armed Forces, who are often the victims of unprosecuted sexual assault, now face a future in which their very ability to serve is under imminent threat. Former Navy veteran Allison Gill, who hosts the podcasts Mueller, She Wrote and The Daily Beans, published an editorial in The Washington Post on Tuesday chronicling her own harrowing experience and spelling out the dangers awaiting female military personnel. Gill revealed that she was one of the thousands of women who were subject to abuse by their superior officers and were not only denied justice but were punished for reporting the crime. "When I was 21, I was drugged and raped violently...
    In a stunning moment during Tuesday’s White House press briefing a CBS News reporter all but urged the White House to declare war on Russia in response to the war crimes the world has now seen in Bucha, Ukraine, and other parts of the country Vladimir Putin has waged an illegal war against. CBS News correspondent Steven Portnoy asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “why shouldn’t the images of the atrocities for Bucha compel a worldwide unified coalition kinetic response?” Somewhat stunned, Psaki appeared to respond as if she might not have correctly understood what Portnoy seemed to be asking. “Do you mean a military war? Tell me more about what you mean,” she said, offering him the opportunity to correct his remarks. “Sure,” Portnoy responded confidently. “A military response led by the United States and the international partners.” “As in bringing military troops on the ground from the United States and NATO?” she said, confirming the worst. “Well,” said Portnoy, who is also the head of the White House Correspondents’ Association. “The President’s described outrageous things you call...
    U.S. Army veteran Mike Durant, the current frontrunner in Alabama’s U.S. Senate Republican primary race, once suggested applying military philosophy to restore “law and order” in some U.S. cities by disarming the population. In 2011, Durant discussed the violence initiated by United Nations forces going door to door to seize firearms in a speech before the U.S. Army War College. As an aside, he speculated about how doing that in “some of our U.S. cities” could be a means to achieving “law and order.” “[F]rom a military perspective, the first thing that needs to be done is disarm the population,” he said. “Let’s face it, if we could do that in some of our U.S. cities, that would be a pretty good step toward law and order. But you ever ask yourself, why don’t we do it here? Because it’s hard. It can result in rioting and widespread rebellion and you know, making the situation worse than it already is. But for some reason, we sort of hand-wave all that kind of stuff and g0 head and hand all those...
    What else? "You shouldn't have to navigate your own city like a war zone. It's un-American," Charise Taylor remarked to WDSU after the harrowing experience. "The crime is out of control and it's terrifying. At this point, having to use the same tactics in an American city that you use in Iraq and Afghanistan simply to navigate through the city, it's scary, and I'm not the only mom feeling this way," she added. Taylor filed a police report but said she was incensed when she learned the New Orleans Police Department listed the incident as only a "disturbance." In a statement, the department said, "The NOPD is actively investigating a disturbance that occurred on Interstate 10 West at the Canal Street exit on February 11, 2022, at about 5:20 p.m. The incident classification is based on the available information regarding the incident at the time the report was written. We do not have any additional information to provide this time." As of Tuesday morning, no arrests had been made in the case. Taylor said she is urging others to...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Biden: ‘It would be wise’ for Americans to leave Ukraine amid Russian military threat, diplomats remaining for now. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    Russia would be able to overrun Ukraine in just two days in an invasion that could kill 50,000 civilians, according to US intelligence.  Western intelligence assessments also believe Kyiv's government would fall within that timeframe, and lead to a humanitarian crisis involving around 5million refugees.  The likelihood of a diplomatic resolution of the crisis appears to be increasingly slim, the analysis concluded.  Referring to an earlier build-up last year, one European official - speaking on condition of anonymity - told the Washington Post: 'Our worry would be that you don't park battle groups … on the border of another country twice and do nothing.  'I think that's the real fear that I have. [Putin's] now put them all out there. If he does nothing again … what does that say to the wider international community about the might of Russia?'  It comes as US military and intelligence officials believe Russia is set to run a major nuclear weapons exercise in the coming weeks as a warning to Nato not to intervene in the event of Putin invading Ukraine, the Financial Times reported.  Russia...
    (CNN)The Ukraine crisis is the classic case of a known unknown: We know that we don't know what Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to do as he amasses troops on the Ukrainian border.So how imminent is the threat of a full-scale war? Some fears appear to have receded slightly following key talks that included Russian and Ukrainian officials. But the Pentagon also says the Russian troop buildup continues, and President Joe Biden told his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky on a call Thursday that there was a distinct possibility Russia could launch an invasion in February, according to National Security Council Spokesperson Emily Horne. Zelensky, however, restated his position that the threat from Russia remains "dangerous but ambiguous," and it is not certain that an attack will take place, a senior Ukrainian official told CNN. Diplomatic efforts to defuse the crisis continue.Taking that into account, here's a look at how soon an invasion could happen and what it might look like.How imminent is the threat of war really?Read MoreAnalysts say Russia has a menu of options to attack at any moment...
    THE United States has long been on the forefront of cutting-edge weapons of war. Now, the country which first developed the atomic bomb is testing and developing weapons which sound like they've been plucked straight out of a science-fiction movie. 3 3Washington is developing AI-controlled drones, reports sayCredit: AP:Associated Press Yesterday, the US Navy announced it had tested a laser weapon which destroyed a floating target in the Gulf of Aden in the Middle East. The laser, which was fired from battle cruiser USS Portland, could be used to obliterate bomb-laden drone boats deployed by Houthi rebels backed by Iran in Yemen. Last year, the same laser brought from a flying drone, it has been reported. Another terrifying weapon the US and its rivals China and Russia are developing is attack drones controlled using Artificial Intelligence. Washington helped pioneer drone technology which has been used to kill terrorists, and in some unfortunate cases civilians, in war zones such as Afghanistan and Syria as well as terror hot spots such as Somalia. Traditionally, the weapons are unnamed planes which are controlled...
    RUSSIA’s hypersonic missile tests continue to escalate fears that a “truly catastrophic and devastating war” could break out as tensions between Washington and Moscow are "simmering", an expert says. Russian wargames have ramped up in recent weeks as officials claim to have successfully tested its lethal, high-speed Zircon weapon. 4Russian president Vladimir Putin has boasted about the capability of the Zircon missileCredit: AP 4Isabel Sawkins, of the Henry Jackson Society, called on US officials to prioritize defense technology in a bid to combat Russia's aggression The warhead, which has been hailed by Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, can travel at 6670mph and hit a naval target more than 400km away in what was its second test in two weeks. Zircon is designed to arm Russian cruisers, frigates, and submarines and Putin has boasted that it will “significantly” boost the country's military capability. In 2018, Putin said the Zircon missile could hit almost any point in the world and evade an America-built defense system. Isabel Sawkins, a research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society, told The Sun that the strongman has seen...
    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said he will not resign after President Biden ignored his recommendation to keep a presence of at least 2,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan, saying to do so would be an "incredible act of political defiance." Milley testified Tuesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee, alongside Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and head of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, saying his personal opinion was to maintain troops in Afghanistan.  MILLEY, MCKENZIE SAY THEY RECOMMENDED 2,500 TROOPS STAY IN AFGHANISTAN, AFTER BIDEN CLAIMS HE WAS NEVER TOLD Milley said that while he would not share his "personal" recommendations he made to the president, his assessment was, "back in the fall of 2020, and remained consistent throughout, that we should keep a steady state of 2,500 and it could bounce up to 3,500, maybe, something like that, in order to move toward a negotiated solution."  Biden and White House officials have said repeatedly that no military leaders advised him to leave a small military presence behind, with the president, himself, telling ABC News...
    Even some Republicans have backed the idea of including women in the Selective Service Program. At a Monday hearing, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) argued that including women in the military draft would "jeopardize" American security and "undermine the military's combat prowess." The 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, which is currently under consideration by Congress and authorizes defense spending, contains an amendment which if passed would extend the Selective Service System to include women. Currently, only men over the age of 18 have to register for the draft. In a meeting of the House Rules Committee, Greene offered an amendment that would keep the draft in its current form. "Drafting American wives, mothers, daughters, for mandatory military service unnecessary politicizes military service and would jeopardize the national security of this nation," said Greene. Greene noted that "men are, by their very nature, the best suited" to meet the demands of the draft, which is designed for "meeting the needs of the armed forces as fast as possible." "The effort...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper opened his show Friday with the horrific news of the military’s “massive and deadly mistake” in Afghanistan. U.S. CENTCOM Commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie admitted that the August 29 airstrike the military initially claimed took out ISIS-K targets actually took out 10 civilians, including 7 children. Tapper reminded viewers, “This is a total about-face from the Pentagon’s initial denial they got anything wrong days after the attack.” He showed video of Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, saying on September 1 this was “a righteous strike.” “No longer so righteous,” Tapper said before speaking with correspondent Anna Coren, who reported on serious questions about the strike just days ago. “It was pretty clear from your investigation a few days ago,” Tapper said, “that the U.S. military had made a huge, tragic mistake here in one of the United States’ very last acts in this 20-year war in Afghanistan. What is the response going to be?” Coren said people are “shocked” that the military “is actually owning up to this,” but they likely came forward...
    Thirteen U.S. military servicepersons killed in the suicide bombing attacks in Afghanistan would be alive if former President Donald Trump was still the commander-in-chief, Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) stated on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “If Donald J. Trump was the president right now, I can guarantee you they would be alive,” Jackson determined. “I have no doubt about that. This is all [Joe Biden’s] doing. This is the disastrous way that they pulled out.” TOPSHOT – US President Joe Biden looks down alongside First Lady Jill Biden as they attend the dignified transfer of the remains of a fallen service member at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware, August, 29, 2021, one of the 13 members of the US military killed in Afghanistan last week. – President Joe Biden prepared Sunday at a US military base to receive the remains of the 13 American service members killed in an attack in Kabul, a solemn ritual that comes amid fierce criticism of his handling of the Afghanistan crisis. Biden and his wife,...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., argued on Monday that President Trump would not have withdrawn troops from Afghanistan if chaos was going to be the result. "This is a time for presidential leadership. But the problem with President Biden is he doesn't understand the nature of the war. He's like a deer in the headlights and he's unable to adjust," Graham told "America Reports." Graham said that "the worst thing at a time of crisis is to have a commander-in-chief who can't change their mind." "As much as criticism you want to levy against President Trump, he made a decision in Syria to withdraw and he changed his mind when he saw what was going to happen. He had a conditions-based withdrawal in Afghanistan. I'm convinced that President Trump would not have let this happen," Graham argued.

    Conservatives have blasted a new proposal that would require women to register for the draft for the first time ever beginning next fiscal year. A provision in the Senate National Defense Authorization Act which was approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee on Wednesday forces women between the ages of 18 and 25 to sign up with the Selective Service, as men are required to do. The NDAA was overwhelmingly approved by the committee by a 23-3 vote, with most Democrats and Republicans supporting the proposal. The three dissenters were GOP Senators Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley and Senator Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat. Cotton’s ‘no’ vote was surprising given that the former Iraq War veteran is considered a hawk on defense issues. ‘Our military has welcomed women for decades and are stronger for it,’ the Arkansas senator wrote. The image above shows United States Marine Corps recruits from Lima Company, the first gender integrated training class in San Diego, climb through mud during training at Camp Pendleton in April 2021. A Senate bill could require women to register...
    After critics slammed the U.S. Army and the CIA for pushing "woke" recruitment advertisement, Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that "wokeness" would be the most "dangerous" ideology for the military to embrace. TWITTER EXPLODES OVER RUSSIAN ARMY RECRUITMENT AD COMPARED TO 'WOKE' US VERSION: 'WE ARE DOOMED' BRiAN MAST: The most dangerous thing for our military is wokeness. Up to this point, that hasn't been the place that the military has really landed largely. There's been some folks trying to make those inroads in there over the last couple of years, but it's been able to be avoided. The military is a serious place. It's life and death work at nearly every single level of it. It's always serious. It's very often dangerous. It's quite often deadly. That's no place for the wokeism that's going on here domestically. And we have to keep it out of there, it's going to cost people's lives in the end.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that while foreign foes may dream about biting off pieces of the country's vast territory, Moscow would "knock their teeth out" if they tried. In strong remarks during a conference call with officials, Putin noted that foreign efforts to contain Russia date from centuries ago. "In all times, the same thing happened: Once Russia grew stronger, they found pretexts to hamper its development," he said, alleging that some critics of Russia, who he didn't name, have argued that it's unfair for the nation to keep its vast natural riches to itself. "Everyone wants to bite us or bite something off us, but those who would like to do so should know that we would knock their teeth out so that they couldn't bite," the Russian leader said. "The development of our military is the guarantee of that." Russian President Vladimir Putin chairs a meeting of Pobeda (Victory) organising committee via teleconference at the Novo-Ogaryovo residence outside Moscow, Russia, Thursday, May 20, 2021.

    Staff members at The Associated Press said they fled from a building in Gaza on Saturday after being told it would be targeted by the Israeli military. The news outlet reported that Jawwad Mahdi, owner of the high-rise that houses the AP and other media outlets, said he received a call from the military warning that the building would be a target. Madhi said he was told he had an hour to make sure everyone had left the building. After being told the warning, AP staffers and other residents of the building “fled in a panic,” the news outlet wrote. Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman, initially told the AP that he was not immediately aware of plans to bomb the building but would check. The AP later reported that the army had told the AP that its staff should evacuate. The move comes as violence between Israel and Hamas continued to escalate on Saturday, after Hamas launched rockets into Israel earlier this week. According to CNN, more than 2,000 rockets have been fired toward Israel from Gaza since Monday....
