The training exercise comes as the city found out some of the details of what the Secret Service wants for security at next month’s summit at McCormick Place. It was frightening,” Jessica Hill said. “I was definitely alarmed.”

At least three Blackhawk helicopters flying at time in close order formation – at other times separating fairly widely – zoomed around office and residential towers for several hours.

“I was pretty amazed,” Felise Llano said, “because they were definitely military.”

Witnesses described three to four very heavily armed men in each chopper. Several said some of the men appeared to be tethered and were at times literally hanging out of the choppers, and looked ready to jump.

Calling it routine training, city officials said in a statement such exercises are conducted by military personnel in various cities around the country. They say the exercises are designed to improve the military’s ability to operate in urban environments.

Emergency management officials said the training sites have been selected to minimize the impact on residents’ daily routines.

The timing of the drills led some to wonder if they’re in preparation for next month’s NATO summit. But officials said that the summit and the drills are unrelated. source – Fox Chicago

The World Moves One Step Closer To WWIII As United States Announces Permanent Base In Poland And NATO Invites Finland And Sweden To Join Them

America will deploy thousands more troops to Europe along with fighters, air defences and ships, Joe Biden announced today, as NATO reinforces its eastern flank in a new Iron Curtain to protect the continent from Russia, moving closer to World War 3.

Either Putin is insane or he is waging a near perfect plan to pull the United States and NATO into World War 3, only time will tell, I suppose. If he’s insane, it doesn’t really matter, he’ll crumble and be swept away eventually. But if he’s not crazy, if this half-heartedly fought war that Russia has now with Ukraine is nothing more than bait, the United States and NATO just bit.

Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.” Isaiah 45:15 (KJB)

On one hand, a new military base in Poland, neighbor to Ukraine, sounds like a great idea, but it’s not really. What it does is create a new ‘Iron Curtain’ that all but ensures World War 3 will arrive sooner rather than later. From a Bible prophecy perspective it’s a good thing, but from the perspective of the people who are about to be thrust into this war, it’s not so great. So far Putin is crazy, but he’s crazy like a fox.

US will sent thousands more troops to Europe along with fighter jets and ships to help defend against Russia

FROM THE DAILY MAIL UK: Joe Biden, speaking at a NATO summit in Madrid today, announced the creation of a new base for the US Fifth Army Corps in Poland – the first permanent American base in the country – along with 3,000 extra soldiers to be sent to Romania and ‘enhanced’ troop rotations for the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Two more squadrons of F-35 fighters will be deployed to the UK, Biden added, along with additional air defence systems for Germany and Italy, and another two destroyers which will be stationed at Rota Naval Station in Spain, bringing the total to six.

Meanwhile NATO formally invited Finland and Sweden to join the alliance after Turkey dropped its opposition, and announced it will boost troops on its eastern flank by almost 4,000 compared to March this year. It comes after alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg yesterday announced NATO’s high-alert force – troops which are not deployed but can be quickly sent into battle in the event of war – is being increased from 40,000 to 300,000.

Moscow reacted with fury to the news, saying NATO expansion will be ‘destabilising’ for Europe.

‘We consider the expansion of the North Atlantic alliance to be a purely destabilising factor in international affairs. It does not add security either to those who are expanding it, those joining it, or to other countries that perceive the alliance as a threat,’ Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.

The original ‘Iron Curtain’ was a phrase coined by Winston Churchill to describe the way Soviet Union and allied eastern European states sealed off contact with the West after the Second World War.  NATO was founded in 1949 to deter a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, with most of the alliance’s troops based in West Germany after it joined in 1955. Now many of NATO’s forces are moving into the former-Soviet East European states to deter new aggression by Putin’s Russia. READ MORE

NATO is set to put a force of 300,000 troops on high alert in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. NBC News’ Keir Simmons reports from the organization’s summit in Madrid.

President Joe Biden helped broker a deal that will allow Finland and Sweden into the NATO alliance, the most significant expansion in nearly 20 years.

The Israeli Air Force Has Begun Installing Precision One-Ton Bombs Into The Belly Of Their F-35s, And Updating Planes For Long Distance Flight To Iran

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) has made dramatic developments aimed at preparing for an attack on Iran, including integrating a precision one-ton bomb in the belly of its F-35s, and updating the stealth fighter jets for long-haul flights direct to the Islamic Republic.

There is no doubt of any kind that Israel is preparing to strike Iran to stop them from getting a nuclear bomb, and right now preparations are underway to refit their F-35 jets with longer-range capabilities with one ton precision bomb payloads. They have been wargaming possible scenarios for months now, and on Tuesday we told you how Iran is getting ready to start launching missiles.

“But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:” Matthew 24:20 (KJB)

The very first article we did on January 1, 2020, told you of the historic partnership between Iran, Russia and China in an operation called ‘Marine Security Belt’. In 2021, Iran and China signed a $400 billion dollar Comprehensive Strategic Partnership covering a variety of economic activity from oil and mining to promoting industrial activity in Iran, as well as transportation and agricultural collaborations. Can Israel strike Iran effectively? Absolutely, but it will come at a huge cost if Iran’s allies, China and Russia, step in to help them when Israel finally strikes.

Israeli Air Force Prepares to Attack Iran by Beefing up F-35s with One-Ton Bomb, Long-Haul Capabilities

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The bomb, developed by Rafael Advanced Weapons Systems — of Iron Dome fame — will be integrated into the fighter jet’s internal weapons compartment without compromising its stealth capabilities. The bomb is autonomous and protected against electronic warfare, the Walla news site reported.

Over the past month, the air force has held four large-scale drills, which included “long-range flight, aerial refueling and striking distant targets,” of more than 100 aircraft, the army said.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said last week Israel had recently adopted a “strategy change” on how to deal with Iran.

“Israel is operating against the many tentacles of Iranian terror, as it has not done in the past. The days of Iran having immunity when it strikes against Israel and spreads its terrorism via proxies, are gone. We are operating everywhere and all the time, and will continue to do so,” he said.

“In recent years Iran has crossed red lines, especially last April, months before this government came to power, when it began enriching uranium to 60% with no international response,” the prime minister said. “Israel cannot and will not accept such a situation.” READ MORE

Israeli Air Force Upgrading Their F-35s For Strike On Iran

In the face of Iran’s continued development of a nuclear capability, Israel has upgraded F-35 stealth fighters; a new capability to fly F-35s from Israel to Iran without mid-air refueling. Israel planning military options against Iran, if nuclear talks between the West & the Islamic Republic fail. Israel has also reportedly integrated a new one-ton bomb into the arsenal of weapons used by the F-35s. The bomb can be carried inside the F-35s internal compartment without jeopardizing stealth signature.

The Chinese Military Deploys Forces To Surround The Island Of Taiwan For What Looks Like A ‘Dress Rehearsal’ For Upcoming Actual Invasion

On Monday, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) announced its Eastern Theater Command organized maritime, aerial, conventional missile and other forces around Taiwan and carried out drills around the island from Friday to Sunday.

The military in China deployed forces all around the island of Taiwan over the weekend in a set of large-scale military drills that one Chinese military analyst called a ‘dress rehearsal’ of possible real action.

While here in America, as the folks in Washington DC are bracing themselves for the upcoming ‘Red Wave’ of the Midterms elections, an actual Red wave has surrounded the island of Taiwan in what analysts are calling a ‘dress rehearsal’ for China to launch an actual invasion. If China is ever going to do it, doing it while pretend president Joe Biden is in office is the key to successfully attacking Taiwan. Why do you think Russia waited until Biden was in to attack Ukraine? Remember Afghanistan? But I digress.

“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” Revelation 16:12 (KJB)

We stopped counting at day 777, but if we were still counting, today is Day 786 of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve, and end times events are proceeding apace exactly as they should be. China invading Taiwan is not a matter of ‘if’, only a matter a ‘when’, and as the long, hot and upcoming ‘Summer of Blood’ begins to assemble itself to distract Americans here at home, Russia and gas prices are doing a great job of providing distraction on a global scale. Speaking of Ukraine, when’s the last time you heard of a ‘war zone’ hosting s rock concert? It’s all theater, kiddies, but with a deadly finale.

China surrounds Taiwan for massive invasion ‘rehearsal’ drills

FROM AMERICAN MILOTARY NEWS: On Monday, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) announced its Eastern Theater Command organized maritime, aerial, conventional missile and other forces around Taiwan and carried out drills around the island from Friday to Sunday. The Eastern Theater Command said the drills were intended “to test and improve the joint operations capability of multiple services and arms.”

While Taiwan governs itself as an independent nation, China considers the island a part of its territory and Chinese officials have repeatedly discussed “reunification” with the island, including by means of military force.

“In preparation of and a possible real action of military conflict in the Taiwan Straits, all PLA forces will play their roles, as they will surround the entire island, seal it off and launch effective strikes,” Song said according to Global Times.

The Chinese state-run Global Times publication reported maritime, aerial, conventional missile and “other forces” participated in the drills around Taiwan. During the drills, China’s Liaoning aircraft carrier deployed east of the island while a large number of Chinese aircraft and warships carried out drills to the island’s west.

The Ministry of National Defence for the Republic of China (the formal name of the Taiwanese government) documented several instances of Chinese military aircraft entering its air defense identification zone (ADIZ) over the course of the three-day exercise. 12 Chinese fighter jets, two bombers and four other Chinese aircraft entered Taiwan’s ADIZ on Friday. Two bombers and three other aircraft entered Taiwan’s ADIZ on Saturday. Two more aircraft entered the ADIZ on Sunday. China flies military aircraft into Taiwan’s ADIZ on a near-daily basis.

Song Zhongping, a Chinese mainland military analyst told the Chinese state publication that the PLA’s drills were “like a rehearsal of  possible real action.” Song noted the participation of air and naval forces, but noted the seeming lack of amphibious landings and actions by ground forces during the drills.
