After the discovery during the summer of what appears to be at least three vast missile silo fields under construction near YumenHami, and Ordos in north-central China, new commercial satellite images show significant progress at the three sites as well as at the People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force (PLARF)’s training site near Jilantai.

The images provide a vivid and rare public look into what is otherwise a top-secret and highly sensitive construction program. The Chinese government has still not officially confirmed or denied that the facilities under construction are silos intended for missiles and there are many uncertainties and unknowns about the nature and role of the facilities. In this article we use words like suspected, apparent, and probable to remind the reader of that fact.

Yet our analysis of hundreds of satellite images over the past three years of the suspected missile silo fields and the different facilities that are under construction at each of them have increased our confidence that they are indeed related to the PLARF’s modernization program. In recent analysis of new satellite images obtained from Planet Labs and Maxar Technologies, we have observed almost weekly progress in construction of suspected silos as well as discovered unique facilities that appear intended to support missile operations once the silo fields become operational.

In this article we describe the progress we have observed. We first describe the shelters, then what we see under the shelters, unique support facilities, and end with overall observations.

Shelter Features and Activities 

Some of the most visible features at each of China’s newly-discovered probable missile silo fields are the environmental shelters that cover each suspected silo headworks. It was these structures, first seen at Jilantai, that led to the discovery of the three large suspected missile silo fields. Shelters are not new phenomena in Chinese missile construction; declassified reports from the US National Photographic Interpretation Center suggest that in the 1970s and 1980s China used a mixture of “large rectangular covers,” “camouflage nets,” and other types of sheltersto protect its silos from the elements, as well as from spy satellites above.

The construction progression typically goes like this: a space for each silo headworks is cleared, then the shelter is erected before large-scale excavation begins. Occasionally the silo hole – or part of it – is excavated first and the shelter is erected over it before the silo components are installed. Several satellite images show semi-circle structural forms that may be lowered into the hole and assembled to form the silo walls during this phase. Several months later, the shelter is removed, and construction continues in the open-air with less sensitive auxiliary structures.

Apart from hiding silo details from satellites, these environmental shelters play an important role in the construction process: winter temperatures in areas like the Jilantai training area can reach below -25 degrees Celsius and pouring concrete in cold temperatures can cause it to freeze and crack. Additionally, many of China’s suspected silo sites are located in desert areas with periodic sandstorms. Spring floods are another challenge, so many silo sites and roads are elevated above the ground level and often with barriers or tunnels to prevent water damage. Environmental shelters, therefore, help keep construction running smoothly and on schedule year round, and they can be erected and dismantled in just a couple of days.

Interestingly, China appears to be experimenting with several different types of shelters for each of its suspected silo fields. The reason for this may have to do with practical construction issues rather than what is being constructed under them.

  1. Short Rectangular Shelters

The most common shelter visible at China’s suspected silo complexes is a rectangular dome-like structure very similar to those used at indoor tennis courts or soccer pitches. Each structure appears to be air-inflated with an estimated area of 4,125 square meters, and must be accessed through a series of airlocks––one for pedestrians and an extended one for vehicles. The external ventilation system provides climate control and a slight continuous overpressure inside the dome, allowing it to retain its rounded shape. See example of inflatable shelter.

Identical rectangular air domes are visible at the Jilantai missile training area, the suspected Yumen silo site, and the suspected Hami silo site. While this does not necessarily prove that identical construction is taking place underneath each dome, it does imply a connection of the activities at the three sites.

In July 2021, Capella Space––a satellite company specializing in synthetic aperture radar––imaged one of the domes at the Yumen site. The SAR image allowed analysts to see the outlines of some structures underneath the dome, although it is difficult to discern much from the image except the clearly-visible framework of the external airlock. There appears to be significant activity directly in the center of the dome, which is where the suspected silo hole appears to be located.

  1. Long Rectangular Shelters

At the suspected Hami silo field, we see deployment of a slightly longer variant of the regular dome shelter. The Hami site is at a later stage of development than its counterpart at Yumen. The structures measure approximately 20 meters longer than the aforementioned domes erected at Yumen and Jilantai, but otherwise appear to be very similar. One discernible difference between the two is that the vehicle airlock is not extended outside of the dome’s main structure but appears to be embedded within the dome itself (see image below).

Although the suspected silo site at Hami contains both types of inflatable domes, there are now more of the longer variant than the shorter version. Given that Hami is a newer site than both Yumen and Jilantai, it is possible that construction has now switched entirely to the longer version and will continue to use this structure for future sites. While Yumen does not appear to have any longer domes on-site, it is notable that some crude extensions to its shorter domes were erected there. This adds approximately 20 meters and expands the short dome to the size of the new longer dome (see image below).

This reason for building longer dome shelters could indicate that silo excavation and construction activities required more space than the PLARF originally thought, and that they are now having to adjust for their newer sites. The estimated area of the longer domes is 4,925 square meters, excluding the approximately 300 square meters needed for the embedded vehicle airlock; this makes the total area slightly less than that of an NFL football field, which has an area of approximately 5,350 square meters.

  1. Round Shelters

At a third suspected missile silo field near Ordos is deploying a different type of inflatable air dome. Instead of the shorter and longer rectangular domes, the PLARF has opted to use round domes with circular bases. Interestingly, these circular domes appear to have several different types of patterns (see image below).

Other than the differences in shape and pattern, the domes appear to function the same way as the other sites. Similar to the longer rectangular air domes, the vehicle airlock appears to be embedded within the dome itself.

There are some potential advantages to these circular domes, compared to the rectangular domes used at Yumen, Hami, and Jilantai. A rounder shape is stronger than a rectangular one, and offers the maximum amount of internal space with the least amount of surface area. This means that less fabric is needed to create the structure, thus creating a potential cost savings. The estimated area of the round domes is approximately 4,725 square meters, excluding the 300 square meters needed for the embedded vehicle airlock.

  1. Solid Shelters

The PLARF has also constructed solid, rectangular structures to temporarily cover some of its suspected missile silo sites. In 2018, Catherine Dill noted that a solid 32m x 66m gable-roofed structure had covered a silo at Wuzhai before it was removed in December 2017. In 2019, Hans Kristensen’s discovery of the Jilantai missile training area included a solid structure with similar measurements covering a newly-constructed silo; in total, the first four apparent silos at Jilantai were built under solid shelters. In 2020, Scott LaFoy and Decker Eveleth also notedthe presence of four high-bay structures with similar measurements covering previously-identified DF-4 ICBM launch sites at Sundian.

In addition to these sites, 11 identical solid structures have been erected at the suspected Yumen missile silo site (see image below). These structures––which were among the very first structures erected at Yumen between March and October 2020––are outliers for the entire complex, which is subsequently has filled entirely with shorter dome shelters that were deployed later in the complex’s construction period (see image below).

What Is Underneath The Shelters?

Several shelters over suspected silo construction sites have now been removed, which allows us to better determine the possible function of the sites. The new satellite images show features that reaffirm that the sites appear to be silos in various stages of construction. A few satellite images taken at sites before the shelters were built already showed features strongly suggesting the sites were missile silos, and the first four sites at Jilantai are clearly silos. But with the growing number of shelters being removed, so far over 40, the evidence pointing to silo construction is in our assessment getting stronger.

Because silo construction at the PLARF training site near Jilantai began before construction at the three large missile silo fields, developments at Jilantai are likely precursors for events that will appear later at the other sites. One of the first four silos (39.76470°N, 105.53952°E) appears to show silo operations. Preparation of this site began in July 2019, and by early-August, satellite images showed excavation of a six-meter-wide deep hole inside a shallower 14–15-meter hole. The following month a shelter was built over the silo apparently to hide technical details from satellites. This was a solid shelter similar to the first 11 later constructed at Yumen. Once silo construction had been completed the shelter was dismantled while construction of access roads and command and control facilities continued. This summer, a Maxar satellite photo showed what appeared to be a missile loading operation at the site, and on October 29, a Planet Labs satellite photographed additional crane operations over the open silo (see below). The silo is probably not yet operational.

The first four silos at Jilantai were covered by garage-like shelters. But in early 2021, dome-like shelters were erected over an additional 10 possible missile silos. These domes, or inflatable shelters, are identical or similar to the shelters over the vast majority of suspected silo sites at Hami, Yumi, and Ordos. In late-October, the dome shelters at Jilantai began to come down. A satellite image of one of these (39.72593°N, 105.52898°E) shows clear signs of a possible silo, first during the early stages immediately before the shelter was erected, and finally immediately after shelter was dismantled. Visible features include what appear to be a silo hatch, small auxiliary buildings, and ground markings from possible buried command and control cables or power lines (see image below). The other sites at Jilantai have the same features and dimensions.

The silo features are also clearly visible at Yumen, which began construction earlier than Hami and Ordos. So far, the shelters have been removed from at least 29 suspected silos at Yumen. The structures are very similar: an apparent silo hatch on an elevated dirt mound, with small auxiliary structures, a wide-turn access road presumably for use by missile transport and maintenance trucks. One of the apparent silo sites under construction at Yumen is shown below. Over the next several months, the remaining surface features will be completed.

Support Facilities

Operation of large missile silo fields requires extensive support infrastructure. This includes main base headquarters, technical support bases, missile and warhead support facilities, command and control infrastructure, electrical power supply, and roads. Many of the facilities under construction at the three suspected missile silo fields at Hami, Yumen and Ordos, as well as at the training site near Jilantai, appear intended to support such functions.

One of the most unique facilities under construction is a large complex that includes what appear to be three large parallel tubes embedded in trenches and connected to buildings via smaller tubes. Underground tunnels connect the three tubes, which might eventually be covered with soil. So far, this type of facility has been found at the Hami and Ordos missile silo fields (see image below), but not yet at Yumen. The function of these two facilities is unknown but could potentially be related to climate-controlled storage or handling of fragile missile and/or warhead components, or command bunker function. (Note: there is no evidence this is the case.)Large and unique support facilities are under construction at the suspected missile silo fields at Hami and Ordos. Click on image to view full size.

Another unique facility so far seen only at Hami (42.2343°N, 92.897°E) includes a growing central complex in the mountains surrounded by what appear to be four tunnels into underground facilities. The tunnels are still under construction and show large amounts of excavation soil dumped nearby (see image below). The function of the facility is unknown but could potentially involve missile and/or warhead storage and management. Again, there is no evidence this is the case and is speculation at this point. The base-tunnel complex appears to be connected to the main missile silo grid via an underground cable. Sixty kilometers (37 miles) to the west (42.32163° N, 92.16282° E), at the other far side of the suspected missile field, is a similar facility with tunnels under construction.A large complex with several tunnels to underground facilities is under construction next to the suspected missile field at Hami.

There are also many other structures under construction that may be technical service facilities and launch control centers. Especially at Hami, we see construction of long lines of what may be powerlines intended to provide electrical power to the sprawling facilities. Finally, a number of larger and smaller construction camps and soil extraction sites are visible at all the suspected missile fields.

Interactive Maps

In order to help monitor and illustrate the construction of China’s suspected missile silo fields, the Federation of American Scientists has created an interactive map for each of the suspected missile silo fields at Yumen, Hami and Ordos (see example of Yumen below). Each map has a slider that allows the viewer to see how the construction of major facilities has progressed over time. These maps will be updated as construction continues. To access the maps, use these links:

Concluding Thoughts

The similarities of the structures and the construction activities at the Jilantai training area and the three suspected missile silo fields under construction near Yuman, Hami, and Ordos all show what appear to be a clear connection to the PLARF’s missile program. Early on, this connection was most visible at Jilantai, where commercial satellite imagery captured telltale semi-circle silo wall structures, silo hatches, and even a potential missile loading operation. With construction progressing at the larger missile fields at Yumen, Hami and Ordos as described in this article, we see strong indications in the satellite images of what appear to be construction of missile silos and support facilities.

It is notable that at this time, no other inflatable air dome complexes on this scale have been spotted at other sites in China. Some sites (for example: 40.18064° N, 107.53670° E) appear to have similar (but much shorter) spacing patterns to those seen at the suspected silo fields; however, at higher imagery resolutions it becomes clear that those structures are not dome shelters or silos, but are in fact much smaller and very different structures for windmills. It is potentially possible that some windmills will be constructed in between the apparent silos; there is some evidence of that at Yumen. We note that some US ICBM silos are also in close proximity of windmills (for example: 40.8222, -104.0505); this does not appear to interfere with silo operations but can effect helicopter operations in the area.

Although we are increasingly confident that the facilities we describe are related to the PLARF’s missile program, it is also important to exercise caution and avoid confirmation bias––particularly if there are additional relevant sites out there that have not yet been spotted on commercial satellite imagery. Nor do we know what China plans to load into the apparent missile silos or how many of them will eventually be armed. The Chinese government has not yet officially confirmed or denied that the facilities are missile silos. But U.S. military officials appear to have confirmed that the reported missile silo fields are part of China’s nuclear modernization program. And based on the features we can examine on the new satellite images, we are increasingly confident that the facilities are indeed missile silos and support facilities under construction.

For China, this is an unprecedented nuclear buildup. We and others have remarked that it raises questions and uncertainty about China’s minimum nuclear deterrent and policies. On the other hand, even construction of large number of silos may not necessarily reflect a change in the basic role the Chinese leadership attributes to its nuclear forces. For example, China could potentially still retain its no-first-use policy. The apparent missile silo fields are still many years away from becoming fully operational and it remains to be seen how China will arm and operate them.

It is important that the buildup does not further increase nuclear competition and fuel worst-case planning in other nuclear weapon states, although we fear those are likely outcomes. These developments will feature prominently in the Biden administration’s ongoing Nuclear Posture Review and we urge the administration not to overreact but pursue conversations with the Chinese government to develop measures to reduce tension and increase transparency.

The reason is obvious: Although China has so far rejected limits on its nuclear forces by arguing that “Countries with the largest nuclear arsenals [Russia and the United States] have special and primary responsibilities in nuclear disarmament,” the size of the Chinese missile silo program – combined with the other elements of China’s nuclear modernization – could bring China into that category in the not too distant future. With approximately 300 apparent silos under construction  – a number that exceeds the number of ICBM silos operated by Russia – and an additional 100-plus road-mobile ICBM launchers, China’s total ICBM force could potentially exceed that of either Russia and the United States in the foreseeable future.

This worrisome development may ironically also create new opportunities for arms control discussions and potential agreements. That is, if there is the political will to pursue them. With the review conference of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty approaching early next year, this would seem to be a good time for the large nuclear powers to demonstrate that will.

(ETHIOPIA) LATEST: Military has called on former soldiers to re-join the army, as it battles to hold off a rebel advance from TPLF edging towards Addis Ababa #AceNewDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.07: The appeal comes as rebel forces – spearheaded by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) – make advances towards the capital, Addis Ababa.

#AceDailyNews says according to latest news reports Ethiopia urges ex-soldiers to join fight against Tigray rebels & US embassy has told all US citizens to leave Ethiopia as soon as possible amid a “very fluid” security situation.

Ethiopian soldiers
Government forces have been battling rebels for a year

Hours earlier, nine anti-government groups forged an alliance to dismantle Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government.

The government has said it will continue to fight what it calls an existential war.

The conflict has entered its second year, with millions displaced and more than 400,000 on the brink of famine.

This week, government officials have declared a state of emergency, and called on residents to register their weapons and get ready to protect their neighbourhoods.

Ethiopia’s international partners have called for an end to the hostilities:

UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss urged both sides to agree a ceasefire in a call with Ethiopia’s deputy prime minister on Friday.

“I made clear there is no military solution and that negotiations are needed to avoid bloodshed and deliver lasting peace,” she said.

On Thursday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken called for a ceasefire, saying: “The conflict in Ethiopia must come to an end.” 

US special envoy Jeffrey Feltman is visiting Addis Ababa to press for peaceful solution. 

The new rebel alliance includes the TPLF and Oromo Liberation Army (OLA). Its leaders said they aimed to oust Mr Abiy’s government and establish an interim administration. 

Here are three reasons why Ethiopia is still at war, a year since the conflict began.

The OLA and TPLF have already started fighting alongside each other and this week claimed to have captured the town of Kemise, 325km (200 miles) north of Addis Ababa.

But government officials have dismissed the new coalition, saying it will have no support.

“They are very weak, the weakest political force in Ethiopia,” government spokesman Kebede Desissa told the BBC’s Newshour programme.

He said “the reality on the ground is not indicating” that rebel forces are advancing on the capital.

Fighting broke out a year ago between government troops and the TPLF, which ruled Ethiopia for decades and now controls Tigray.

(DAMASCUS) #Syria War Report: As legacy media again bleat the unsubstantiated “Syria is bombing hospitals” chorus of its war propaganda songbook, let’s pause to review the relatively unknown (but verifiable) reality of terrorists bombing hospitals in Syria #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.26: Following recent allegations of a hospital being targeted Al Atarib, western Aleppo, the US State Department repeated the claim, in spite of any clear evidence to back it up:

Western media quick to accuse Syria of ‘bombing hospitals’ – but when TERRORISTS really destroy Syrian hospitals, they are silent: after but instead, reports rely on highly questionable sources like the White Helmets, the USAID-funded Syrian American Medical Society and theusual unnamed “witnesses” and (clearly impartial!) “rebel sources,” as per a Reuters’ report on the recent claims:

Western media quick to accuse Syria of 'bombing hospitals' - but when TERRORISTS really destroy Syrian hospitals, they are silent

US sanctions are part of a multi-front war on Syria, and its long-suffering civilians are the main target

In fact, Reuters even acknowledges being unable to verify the authenticity of videos purporting to show “a ward damaged and civil defence rescuers carrying bloodstained patients outside.”

Let’s recall that Idlib is occupied by Al-Qaeda in Syria – a fact emphasized (as I wrote) by the US’ own former special envoy, Brett McGurk, who deemed the northwestern Syrian province the “largest Al-Qaeda safe-haven since 9/11.” ….Syrian Army says Israeli jets targeted Damascus countryside after Iran warned of repercussions

The presence of Al-Qaeda and affiliated terrorist groups makes it impossible for independent, neutral bodies to assess what is going on.

Facts matter, they say. But really, not so much when it comes to war propaganda.

In Sarmada, Idlib countryside, one of the targets was a Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda in Syria) fuel market, the smuggled fuel tankers obliterated.

A White Helmets video supposedly filmed in Al-Atarib alleges a hospital was bombed there. It indeed shows what looks like a medical facility covered in dust, and a lot of bulky men of fighting age. Glaringly absent are women or normal looking civilians.

Given the White Helmets’ penchant for working only in areas controlled by terrorist factions, working with them and even numbering among them, dabbling in organ trade, and having lied many times in the past, the video proves nothing.

There is, on the other hand, a precedent for “hospitals” or medical centres being weaponized by terrorists. And not just once or twice, but repeatedly in terrorist-occupied areas throughout Syria.

I’ve seen them in Aleppo and eastern Ghouta.

The Eye and Childrens’ Hospitals, a large complex in eastern Aleppo, was militarized and occupied by terrorists including the Tawhid Brigade, Al-Qaeda and even IS (Islamic State, formerly ISIS). Prisoners were held, and tortured, in nightmarish prisons and solitary confinement cells deep below. 

As journalist Vanessa Beeley noted, in eastern Ghouta, medical centres, “provided treatment almost exclusively to extremist armed factions.” They were also built underground, “linked by a vast maze of tunnels that snaked below most of the districts controlled by the armed groups, providing cover for the fighters during SAA [Syrian Arab Army] military campaigns.” (An aside, see one of these massive tunnels in Douma, at the location of the underground “hospital.”)

In Idlib, a “hospital” that the New York Times claimed Russian warplanes bombed in May 2019 was a cave used as a terrorist headquarters. Another fortified cave in Khan Sheikhoun was well-stocked with weapons, medical supplies and gas masks, and a prison with solitary confinement cells.

In areas liberated from terrorists, the Syrian Army routinely finds such caves, with tunnels connecting terrorist bases so they can avoid moving above ground.

In the past, Russia has provided satellite imagery when the question of a building allegedly being bombed arose.

Hospitals bombed, media yawns

Since the media and pundits clearly care so much about Syrian hospitals being bombed, and even destroyed, it’s worth reviewing some of the major hospitals damaged or destroyed by terrorist factions.

However, unsurprisingly, not a lot of information is available. The following is a partial list, with me filling in details from attacked hospitals that I have gone to.

  • The September 2012 Free Syrian Army (FSA) bombing of and complete destruction of Al-Watani Hospital in Qusayr, Homs province. 
  • The September 2012 FSA bombing and complete destruction of two hospitals in Aleppo.
  • The December 2013 FSA & Al-Qaeda bombing and complete destruction of Aleppo’s Al-Kindi hospital, one of the largest and best cancer hospitals in the Middle East.
  • The April 2015 FSA bombing and siege of the National Hospital in Jisr al-Shughour, Idlib.
  • The May 2016 IS horrific multiple suicide bombings in Jableh (andalso in Tartous the same day), including inside Jableh’s National Hospital.
  • The May 2016 attack outside Aleppo’s Dabeet maternity hospital, a missile hit a car parked outside, which then exploded, killing three women at the hospital and injuring many more. 

I went to Aleppo in July 2016 and spoke with the director, who confirmed his hospital was gutted in the blast, and noted that a week later terrorists’ mortars hit the roof of the hospital, destroying the roof and injuring construction workers.

In May 2018, before Daraa was fully liberated, I went to areas which were under fire from terrorists (including the day I went), and took a perilous high speed ride in the taxi I had hired in Damascus to the state hospital, down a road exposed to terrorist sniping from less than 100 metres away.

The hospital was battered and partially destroyed from terrorists’ mortars, and mostly empty of patients. The director showed me destroyed wards (dialysis and laboratory), and off-limits areas due to high risk of sniping (gynecology, operations, blood bank, nursing school, children’s hospital).

When I returned to Daraa in September, after the region was liberated, the hospital was full of patients, since it was finally possible to access without risk.

Behind the hospital, roughly 50 metres away, I saw a building when I was told had been occupied by terrorists. Hence the extreme risk of being sniped while inside the hospital.

I never saw any Western outlet speak of this hospital, although it serviced civilians and was quite visibly partially destroyed.

In November 2016, I met Dr. Ibrahim Hadid, former Director of Kindi Hospital, who said that he wanted medical colleagues and institutions to exert some of the concern they have for “hospitals” allegedly bombed in terrorist areas.

They, and Western corporate media, have done the opposite, of course.

Another chemical song and dance routine?

Meanwhile, Russia is warning of a possible new staged chemical provocation by Tahrir al-Sham in Idlib.

The Russian Center for Reconciliation says, “militants are plotting to stage a fake chemical attack near the settlement of Qitian,” to again accuse the Syrian government of using chemicals on the people.

As anyone following the war on Syria knows, although the West desperately wants to prove Syria committed one or more chemical attacks, it has failed, to the point where even OPCW experts spoke out, contradicting the claims.

As I wrote last week, in spite of incessantly lying about Syria for ten years, Western (and Gulf) media, pundits and politicians steam ahead with more lies – recycled accusations and war propaganda.

So, it is likely the “hospitals bombed” theme will surge anew, and then the “chemical attacks” theme. And then maybe we’ll have another new Bana al-Abed to ask Biden to bomb Syria or “holocaust” Idlib…

On and on it goes, ceaseless war propaganda in its 10 years since the war in Syria began, and Western media & pundits are still eager to keep it going

The irony is of course, as I feel the need to make clear nearly every time I write, those script-readers claiming that Syria (and Russia) are bombing hospitals, or using chemicals, or whatever lie is next recycled, don’t actually care about the lives of Syrians. 

If they did, they would stop whitewashing terrorism in Syria, aid the country and its allies in liberating Idlib and the Aleppo countryside, stop pillaging its oil, leave Syria, and lift the sanctions.

(KABUL, Afghanistan.) Save The Children Report: More than 26,000 children killed or injured in the country since 2005, as ‘appalling cost’ of conflict revealed as true cost of War is being revealed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.23: The “appalling cost” of the conflict has resulted in the suffering of at least 26,025 children between 2005 and 2019, according to the organization: Ahead of its donor conference in Geneva this week, Save the Children declared Afghanistan one of the world’s most dangerous countries for children and called on nations to cease using explosive weapons in populated areas:

Police officers stand guard after rockets hit residential areas in Kabul, Afghanistan November 21, 2020.

Chris Nyamandi, Save the Children’s country director in Afghanistan, described a grim picture.

Imagine living with the constant fear that today might be the day that your child is killed in a suicide attack or an airstrike. This is the grim reality for tens of thousands of Afghan parents whose children have been killed or injured.

Violence has increased in Afghanistan as peace talks have stalled and US troops have begun withdrawing from the region. In 2019, Afghanistan accounted for the highest number of child fatalities (874) and injuries (2,275) of all global conflicts examined in the group’s report.

The report revealed how schools are routinely attacked in the region as part of clashes between the Afghan government, alongside US troops, and the Taliban, as well other insurgents. In the two years between 2017 and 2019, the charity found there were more than 300 attacks on educational establishments: As well as concerns over violence in the country, Save the Children also warned that more than seven million children in Afghanistan are at risk of hunger and three million kids under the age of five are suffering from malnutrition, with the coronavirus pandemic having “exacerbated” the situation:

‘ FRANCE HOLD EMERGENCY MEETING TO WARN RUSSIA OF OBAMA’S FALSE FLAG OF WAR ‘

#AceNewsServices – Featured Post: Dec.31:An ominous report prepared by the General Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces (GRU) circulating in the Kremlin recently stated that an emergency meeting held Saturday morning in Moscow between President Putin and French President François Hollande was due to the discovery of France’s General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) of a la terreur spectaculaire [English: terror spectacular] being planned by the Obama regime.

According to this report, early Saturday morning (6 December), President Hollande was in route to Paris from his state visit to Kazakhstanwhen his plane requested an immediate/emergency flight path deviation to Moscow’s Vnukovo International Airport (VIA) where the French leader requested/demanded” that he be met by Putin upon his landing.

Upon President Hollande’s arrival at VIA, this report continues, he was escorted with his security/intelligence entourage to the government’s Terminal 2 facilitiessafe room that protects its occupants from electronic surveillance.

Upon Putin’s rushed arrival and meeting with his French counterpart at the VIA, GRU analysts in this report say, a visibly distraught President Hollande began detailing how his countries DGSE had informed him of their uncovering of an Obama regime plot to stage a massive false flag terror attack which the blame of which would placed on Russia.

President Hollande further noted to Putin his fears that Russia would be forced to retaliate against the United States, this report says, but expressed his alarm that France could be catastrophically impacted by such a conflict, and which with his meeting he was attempting to insure would not happen.

Though this report does not detail any response to President Hollande from Putin, it does note that he did order the sudden deployment of the S-400 ‘Triumph’ and Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile systems, as well as the Kasta radar station, to central Moscow this morning.

Equally as ominous, this report warns, is that President Hollande’s warning to Putin came one day after the US Congress passed what is in essence a declaration of war against the Russian Federation.

This Obama regime declaration of war against the Russian Federation, known as House Resolution 758, the GRU confirms, was passed overwhelmingly by the US Congress on 5 December without the American peoples knowledge and/or consent, a fact shockingly described by the award-winning author, and Professor of Economics (emeritus) at the University of Ottawa, Michel Chossudovsky, who stated: “This historic vote – which potentially could affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people worldwide– has received virtually no media coverage. A total media blackout prevails.”

Former US Congressman Ron Paul, likewise, this report states, blasted this declaration of war by stating:

“Yesterday the US House passed what I consider to be one of the worst pieces of legislation ever. H. Res. 758 was billed as a resolution “strongly condemning the actions of the Russian Federation, under President Vladimir Putin, which has carried out a policy of aggression against neighboring countries aimed at political and economic domination.”

In fact, the bill was 16 pages of war propaganda that should have made even neocons blush, if they were capable of such a thing. That is why I can hardly believe they are getting away with it again, and this time with even higher stakes: provoking a war with Russia that could result in total destruction!”

As to the why of the Obama regimes plan to attack the Federation, this report continues, was articulated earlier today by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov who said:

“It is hardly a secret that the goal of the sanctions is to create social and economic conditions to carry out a change of power in Russia”. and who further warned, “There will be no easy or fast way out of this.”

And to how the Obama regime is preparing for this war, the GRU warns, can be seen in their massive deployment of weapons and troops into the European Union and which even their own NATO experts have warned is intensifying: “We have already boosted our presence in the eastern part of our alliance. We have five times more planes in the air. Our forces start an exercise every two days. And we have also increased the number of ships in the Baltic and the Black Seas.”

Though the vast majority of Americans have no idea about the catastrophe to come due to the Obama regime declaring war on Russia, the same cannot be said of the more than 120 senior military, political and diplomatic figures from across the world that warned last week at the Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons of the nightmare about to occur.

The grim fate of nuclear war to strike the average American person, however, cannot be said of their elites, who in a detailed report released this past week have been discovered to be building massive underground fortresses to protect themselves.

WAR CRIMES: ‘ SERBIA & BOSNIA CARRY-OUT DAWN RAIDS & ARREST STRPCI MASSACRE SUSPECTS ‘ ‘

#AceWorldNews – Dec.05 – Serbia and Bosnia carried out a pre-dawn sweep of arrests on Friday in the Balkan war’s Strpci Massacre.

' Strpci Massacre '

‘ Strpci Massacre ‘

The two countries, which were wartime enemies, worked together to crack the case of the massacre, which took place on February 27, 1993.

The raids captured five suspects in Serbia and 10 in Bosnia.

“We are now on the path to solve the murder that has been hidden for more than 20 years,” Serbian war crimes prosecutor Bruno Vekaric said.

The Serbian government now acknowledges Strpci as a war crime.

GAZA CITY: ‘ HAMAS TERRORISTS CELEBRATE DISBANDING KNESSET COALITION WITH MISSILE TEST ‘

#AceNewsServices – GAZA CITY – Dec.03 – Gaza’s Hamas terrorist leaders on Wednesday apparently celebrated the disbanding of the Knesset coalition by launching a missile test, in another threatening show of force indicating the group’s preparations for yet another terror war on Israel.

Three rockets were fired into the Mediterranean Sea by Hamas according to IDF sources, who said the launches were identified from the Tel Katifa region, reports Channel 10.

The area from which the rockets were fired was a Jewish community before the 2005 Disengagement plan forcefully expelled all Jews from Gaza, paving the way for Hamas’s takeover of the region.

Late last month Hamas held four rocket tests in two days, with the IDF estimating that the terrorist organization is “experimenting in order to increase rocket launching capabilities.”

Likewise the terrorist organization has started rebuilding its terror tunnels to attack Israeli citizens, after roughly 30 of them were destroyed in the last operation.

Mosab Yousef, the son of Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef known for working for the Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet), last Tuesday joined the voices calling for Israel to launch a war to get rid of Hamas before the next conflict breaks out.

“You cannot escape from [Hamas militarization] with temporary solutions. You have to address the Hamas problem by pulling it up from the roots, once and for all,” said Yousef.

Hamas has been active, with a revelation last month showing the group was behind a foiled assassination attempt on Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu).

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri responded to the publication, saying “all the leaders of the occupation are considered legitimate targets for resistance.”

A speech made in 1942 that is still relevant in 2014

Charlie Chaplin did a movie in 1942, a few years before WWII ended and in the middle of a war. The movie was called ‘The Great Dictator’ Now many people know this but the video below of his speech for democracy and peace was actually adlibbed. He forgot his lines and just spoke from the heart, he said what I am guessing many thought at the time. The video is his voice with modern images over it. I have shared this video 100 times now, I just shared it with someone on their blog and it made me do this blog. This video speaks a 72 year old language in a World long lost and forgotten. A world where men would take their own life if they could not fight for their country. I know it happened in the USA and the UK. That is an Alien World now. The values we held then have gone, social values have collapsed and we have turned into a hateful species, we do see individual acts of kindness but too often we see a world where hate and greed have taken over

It’s amazing how a 72 year old speech from 1942, made up on the spot can be so relevant in 2014

Ukrainian Army Using White Phosphorus on Its Own Citizens?

Just caught this story here, the Ukrainian Government have been accused of using White Phosphorus on it’s own people, I can’t verify this as I am just one man at a seat in Scotland. But I do know it can kill and it’s banned under the Protocol III of the UN Convention http://www.icrc.org/ihl/INTRO/515 It can cause long term suffering and also if it enters the water supply can and will be deadly. I can offer one image and 3 video’s at this time

According to the Protocol III of the UN Convention on Conventional Weapons governing the use of incendiary weapons:
prohibits the use of incendiary weapons against civilians (effectively a reaffirmation of the general prohibition on attacks against civilians in Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions)
prohibits the use of air-delivered incendiary weapons against military targets located within concentrations of civilians and loosely regulates the use of other types of incendiary weapons in such circumstances.[12]
Protocol III states though that incendiary weapons do not include:
Munitions which may have incidental incendiary effects, such as illuminates, tracers, smoke or signaling systems;
Munitions designed to combine penetration, blast or fragmentation effects with an additional incendiary effect, such as armour-piercing projectiles, fragmentation shells, explosive bombs and similar combined-effects munitions in which the incendiary effect is not specifically designed to cause burn injury to persons, but to be used against military objectives, such as armoured vehicles, aircraft and installations or facilities.

Leaflet tells Jews to register in East Ukraine

Not again! Please
This is all too familiar isn’t it? And it cost’s £50 to register, by force, this scares me, this happened before very slowly. IF you know history, you will see and feel the actions that were taken pre-WWII almost ghost those of today, they are the damn same. I got mocked by some Idiot called “T” over this, the fool can hardly tie his laces. History repeats and we do not notice, only the educated can and will see WWIII is coming, these events happened pre-WWII. If you think I am wrong, prove me wrong. I know WWII inside out, this is how it started, do you know this? Or is Shaun making up stories and placing them on 200 websites again?

WAKE UP, PLEASE!! This is just the start!

World leaders and Jewish groups condemned a leaflet handed out in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk in which Jews were told to “register” with the pro-Russian militants who have taken over a government office in an attempt to make Ukraine part of Russia, according to Ukrainian and Israeli media. Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee “or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated,” reported Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website, and Ukraine’s Donbass news agency. Secretary of State John Kerry said the language of the leaflets “is beyond unacceptable” and condemned whomever is responsible.

“In the year 2014, after all of the miles traveled and all of the journey of history, this is not just intolerable — it’s grotesque,” he said. “And any of the people who engage in these kinds of activities — from whatever party or whatever ideology or whatever place they crawl out of — there is no place for that.” U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt called the leaflets “the real deal.” But the man whose name appears on the leaflets, Denis Pushilin, identified as chairman of “Donetsk’s temporary government,” said he was not responsible. Pushilin, who is a leader of the pro-Russian movement in Donetsk, acknowledged that leaflets were distributed under his organization’s name but denied any connection to them, Ynet reported. Donetsk is the site of an “anti-terrorist” operation by the Ukraine government, which has moved military columns into the region to force out militants who are demanding a referendum be held to join Russia. Emanuel Shechter, in Israel, told Ynet his friends in Donetsk sent him a copy of the leaflet through social media. “They told me that masked men were waiting for Jewish people after the Passover eve prayer, handed them the flier and told them to obey its instructions,” he said.

READING BETWEEN LINES

The leaflet begins “Dear Ukraine citizens of Jewish nationality” and states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and “register.” It says the reason is because the leaders of the Jewish community of Ukraine supported Bendery Junta, a reference to Stepan Bandera, the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement that fought for Ukrainian independence at the end of World War II, “and oppose the pro-Slavic People’s Republic of Donetsk,” a name adopted by the militant leadership. The leaflet then described which documents Jews should provide: “ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles.” Consequences for non-compliance will result in citizenship being revoked “and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property,” it said. A registration fee of $50 would be required, it said.

‘SMELLS LIKE PROVOCATION’

Olga Reznikova, 32, a Jewish resident of Donetsk, told Ynet she never experienced anti-Semitism in the city until she saw this leaflet. “We don’t know if these notifications were distributed by pro-Russian activists or someone else, but it’s serious that it exists,” she said. “The text reminds me of the fascists in 1941,” she said referring to the Nazis who occupied Ukraine during World War II. The Jewish community in Donetsk issued a statement saying the leaflet distribution “smells like a provocation.” The chief rabbi of nearby Dnipropetrovsk, Shmuel Kaminezki said, “Everything must be done to catch them.” “It’s important for everyone to know its not true,” Kaminezki told CNN. “The Jews of Donetsk will not do what the letter says.” Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, the oldest pro-Israel group in the USA, said the leaflets should be seen in the context of a rising tide of anti-Semitism across Europe.

“This is a frightening new development in the anti-Jewish movement that is gaining traction around the world,” Klein said. Michael Salberg, director of the international affairs at the New York City-based Anti-Defamation League, said it’s unclear whether the leaflets were issued by the pro-Russian leadership or a splinter group operating within the pro-Russian camp. But he said the Russian side has used the specter of anti-Semitism in a cynical manner. Russia and its allies in Ukraine have issued multiple stories about the threat posed to Jews by Ukraine’s new pro-Western government in Kiev, Salberg said. “The message is a message to all the people that is we’re going to exert our power over you,” he said. “Jews are the default scapegoat throughout history for despots to send a message to the general public: Don’t step out of line.”

If you know history, you will know Nazi Germany got Jews to do JUST THIS
This developing story is one to seriously watch out for, Jews being forced to register, why? Get this news out there people, this is not good, a reminder of History and links below as I try my best to warn a World of what is coming. I don’t make this up, I link stuff up, it’s the news OUR news won’t cover in part

` Sunni-Shia Sectarian War has `Killed More than 2,400 People ‘ in a ` Series of Attacks ‘ and Blood-Letting ‘

#AceWorldNews – BAGHDAD – April 07 – Iraqi Security Forces have killed 19 militants, while three others were killed in violence across the country on Monday, as unrest spreads ahead of parliamentary elections on April 30.

Iraqi police and soldiers killed 19 militants in clashes south of Baghdad as well as in the conflict hit western cities of Ramadi and Fallujah.

Authorities also found the corpses of two men in different areas of Baghdad and a policeman was gunned down north of the capital.

The polls on April 30 are the first since 2010 and come amid the worst sustained period of violence since 2008.

The blood-letting is driven by a brutal Sunni-Shia Sectarian war that has already killed more than 2,400 people this year.

` EU Backed Special Tribunal ' for Trial of ` Albanian Guerillas ' accused of ` Harvesting Organs ' from Murdered Serbs'

#AceWorldNews – KOSOVO – April 04 – Western officials are considering a plan for an EU-backed special tribunal to try Kosovo Albanian former guerrillas accused of harvesting organs from murdered Serbs during the Balkan country’s 1998-99 war, Reuters reported.

RT reports that Saturday’s edition of the Kosovo daily, Koha Ditore, will carry an interview with Jonathan Moore, director of the US State Department’s Office of South-Central European Affairs, who said preparations were under way with EU participation for a court based in Kosovo.

BELGRADE – The Serbian Office of the Prosecutor for War Crimes has welcomed the information by Tanjug that came from Brussels, which says that those from the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) indicted for the crimes listed in the report by Dick Marty will be tried in The Hague, and not in Pristina.

The majority of the work will be done outside Kosovo, meaning witnesses will give testimony abroad to protect them.

The move to stage a court stems from a 2011 report by Council of Europe rapporteur, Dick Marty.

#AceWorldNews – latest on the Beirut car-bombing is that 7 people were killed and 128 wounded in the twin blasts in Beirut’s Bir Hasan neighbourhood on Wednesday morning, the Daily Star newspaper reports, citing Lebanese security sources.

Seven people are in “critical condition,” the country’s Red Cross said. Twin suicide car bombings targeted the Iranian Cultural Centre in a busy Beirut suburb Wednesday.

The Al-Qaeda-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility, saying the attacks were carried out in retaliation to Hezbollah’s and Iran’s roles in the Syrian war.

#Iran :” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Orders Creation of `Economy of Resistance’ to counter Western Sanctions”

#AceWorldNews says Iran’s Khamenei orders creation of ‘economy of resistance’ Iran’s supreme leader has ordered the government to create an “economy of resistance” to counter Western sanctions. In comments posted on his website on Wednesday,

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the sanctions “a full-fledged economic war,” adding that Iran is determined to force the West to retreat.

The program requires the government to diversify Iran’s exports, reduce dependence on sales of raw materials and promote high-tech industries.

What does a man gain when he considers…

What does a man gain when he considers war as the only option! These words awoke me today, to all that l can hear, but as a nation of nations, we do so much to create wars by being right, is not greed the real reason!
These wars are not just against countries like #syria or #iraq but shopping malls bear witness to people fighting over a pair of shoes, or someone wanting the only car-parking space, so war is in the blood, man is born out of tyranny, and so believes in war as the only option!

If l win used to be the battle cry of embittered generals now so embroiled in daily conflict, but now they call out, when we win, as win we will! Is this not just their ego talking, like children with words like my tank can blow up your tank, because its bigger!

So what about the gain, or should l really say the shame, the real victors are not the generals or the politicians, who behind the scene politically motivate others to follow their edict! As their reason given is for the people to be free, but don’t they know, or even care about the real losers, as theses are the widows and orphans, the innocents, whose lives are disrupted for ever! As ever more bodies of their family members continue to pile up, and create evermore displaced families! They just wanted a quiet life to live out their years in tranquillity! These are the ones who just happened to live in this country, were born in this country and hoped when they were old to die in this country! Not to end up burying their son who is younger than them, sometimes in an unmarked grave, for fear of reprisals!

So l ask, as so many have asked before! Will committing your country to war for your own reasons, gain anything for these people?
So to all those that eventually sign the edict, or agree they are doing it for the right reason, just maybe sometimes being right, is not what we should be doing, especially when being right kills so many innocent people!

So l say shame on all those that use war, as an excuse, to play the human rights card, as so many have already died in other pointless conflicts, and if some duly elected president, prime minister or misguided politician or general, says its the only way, l say #peacebewithyou as the beginning of any war, starts with being right and ends with death!
