  • Warfare beneath the waves: The undersea domain in Asia

    While Chinese surface vessels wrangle with their regional counterparts over disputed waters in the East and South China Seas, a quieter but potentially deadlier competition is taking place underwater. Subsurface military capabilities are proliferating across the Asia-Pacific, and while the US Navy has long dominated the undersea realm, American submarines now have plenty of company. What is driving this buildup, and does it make Asia more or less secure?

An amendment in this regard to the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA)-2018, moved by Senator Ted Cruz, was passed by the Senate Armed Services Committee early this week. It is a part of Cruz’s effort to further implement the designation of India as a ‘Major Defence Partner’. “Few partnerships in the 21st century carry more strategic significance than United States partnership with India, the world’s largest democracy,” said Cruz’s office. “Even so, Senator Cruz believes that current bilateral cooperation and joint development...

U.S. all Domains War Game in South Korea United States, and the Republic of Korea will kick off the largest war game in water surrounding the South Korea, beginning March 21, 2017. The exercises involved U.S. Navy ships assigned to Command Task Force (CTF) 30, and CTF 70, to strengthen maritime interoperability and tactics, techniques and procedures. This year additional surface, subsurface, and air assets joining the bilateral exercise include aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, Carrier Air Wing 2, Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Barry (DDG 52), USS Wayne E Meyer (DDG 108), USS McCampbell (DDG 85), USS Stethem (DDG 63), Los Angeles-class nuclear fast attack submarine USS Columbus (SSN 762), and P-3 and P-8 Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft from Commander Task Force 72. The exercises will consist of a routine bilateral training, subject matter expert exchanges, anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare drills, communication drills, air defense exercises, counter-mine planning and distinguished visitor embarkations. Rear Adm. James Kilby, commander, Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group said that this exercise is yet another example of the strength and resolve of the combined U.S. and the ROK naval force, the U.S. and the Republic of Korea share one of the strongest alliances in the world, and we grow stronger as an alliance because of our routine exercises here in South Korea, and the close relationship and ties that we forge from operating at sea together. His counterpart, Rear Adm, Choi, Sung-Mok, the chief of staff for the Republic of Korea Fleet said, that this defensive exercise focuses on enhancing the interoperability between the ROK and US navies, and helps both navies maintain a combined defense posture to protect the ROK from future North Korean unprovoked acts of aggression. USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group deployed to the region under U.S. 3rd Fleet command and control, including beyond the international dateline, which previously divided operational areas of responsibility for 3rd and 7th Fleets. Third Fleet operating forward offers additional options to the Pacific Fleet commander by leveraging the capabilities of 3rd and 7th Fleets. This operational concept allows both numbered fleets to complement one another and provide the foundation of stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. The U.S. Navy maintains a presence in the Indo-Asia-Pacific to help preserve peace and security and further our partnerships with friends and allies. Our forward presence contributes to freedom of navigation and lawful use of the sea, as well as furthers operational training and enables an exchange of culture, skills, and tactical knowledge.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_Expeditionary_Force Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ The Brazilian Expeditionary Force or BEF (Portuguese: Força Expedicionária Brasileira; FEB) was an expeditionary force of about 25,700 men and women arranged by the Army and Air Force to fight alongside the Allied forces in the Mediterranean Theatre of World War II. Brazil was the only independent South American country to send ground troops to fight in the Second World War. This air-land force fought in Italy from September 1944 to May 1945, while the Brazilian Navy as well as the Air Force also acted in the Atlantic Ocean from the middle of 1942 until the end of war. During the eight months of the Italian campaign, the Brazilian Expeditionary Force managed to take 20,573 Axis prisoners, consisting of two generals, 892 officers, and 19,679 other ranks. During the War, Brazil lost 948 of its own men killed in action across all three services during the Italian campaign... Overview Brazil's participation alongside the Allied powers in World War II was by no means a foregone conclusion, even though Brazil (along with Italy, Japan and Romania, for example) had supported the Entente in World War I. Then Brazilian participation (19171918) was primarily naval, although it did send a Military Mission to the Western Front. The Brazilian navy and air force played a role in the Battle of the Atlantic after mid-1942, Brazil also contributed an infantry division that entered combat on the Italian Front in 1944. As in 1914, Brazil in 1939 maintained a position of neutrality. Trading with both the Allies and the Axis Powers, however as the war progressed trade with the Axis countries became almost impossible and the US began forceful diplomatic and economic efforts to bring Brazil onto the Allied side. These efforts led to creation of the Joint Brazil-U.S Defense Commission, which was chaired by James Garesche Ord and worked to strengthen military ties between the two countries during the war. Designed to Reduce the likelihood of Axis attacks on US shipping as soldiers traveled across the Atlantic to Africa and Europe, and minimizing the influence of the Axis in South America. At the beginning of 1942 Brazil permitted the US to set up air bases in return for the offer by the United States to encourage the formation of an iron-industry Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional in Brazil. The US bases were located in the states of Bahia, Pernambuco and Rio Grande do Norte, where the city of Natal hosted part of the U.S. Navy's VP-52 patrol squadron. In addition, US Task Force 3 established itself in Brazil; this included a squadron equipped to attack submarines and merchant-vessels attempting to trade with Japan. Although Brazil remained technically neutral, this increasing cooperation with the Allies led the Brazilian government to announce at the Pan American States Conference in Rio on 28 January 1942 its decision to sever diplomatic relations with Germany, Japan, and Italy. As a result, from the end of January to July 1942, German U-Boats sank 13 Brazilian merchant vessels. In August 1942, U-507 sank five Brazilian vessels in two days causing more than 600 deaths... Ultimately, the government found itself with no alternative but to declare war on Germany and Italy on August 22, 1942...

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). The New York Times, April 27, 1894: NOT A BAD PLACE TO LIVE IN MONTEVIDEO IS CLEAN, HEALTHY, AND OTHERWISE ATTRACTIVE. Picturesquely Built on the Slope of a Mountain-- A Quarantine System Which is Almost Perfect Under the Direction of the Navy Department-- Old Broadway Cars Running on the Streets of the City. - MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, Feb. 27.--This is known as the cleanest city in the world. It is also said to enjoy greater immunity from disease than any other city in the Western Hemisphere. It is built upon the easy-rising slope of a mount. The base of this mount is exposed, for the greater portion, to strong tidal effects, supplemented by the natural current of the Rio de la Plata River. Dirt and filth find no lodgement in the harbor of Montevideo, while in the streets one finds an absence of dirt only remarkable when compared with European and North American cities. The streets are paved with granite blocks. - The immunity enjoyed by Montevideo from contagious diseases, exposed as the city is to close relations with Brazilian ports, is mainly attributed to the rigid quarantine regulations which are enforced. It is pretty safe to say that the Montevideo authorities are better posted concerning the health of foreign ports than are the inhabitants of many of those ports... - Here in Montevideo it is possible the year round to count twenty vessels in quarantine and sometimes fifty or more. - At present Montevideo is quarantining against all South American ports to the northward of here. If the steamers of the regular lines running from Europe to the Rio de la Plata make a practice of touching at Pernambuco, Bahia, Rio de Janeiro, and Santos they invariably pay the penalty on arrival at Montevideo of ten to twelve days quarantine, followed by a fumigation of passenger and crew effects... - The quarantine patrol boats are in command of Lieutenants of the Uruguayan Navy, and Surgeons of the navy constitute the members of the Quarantine Medical Board... - Next to Buenos Ayres, Montevideo imports more American manufactured goods than any other city in the world south of the equator. Valparaiso is close after Montevideo in this respect; so, also, are Rio de Janeiro and Santos. - In Montevideo one finds American street cars, American-built cabs and coaches, and considerable American machinery, particularly electric generating machines. Of late, a number of Broadway street cars have found their way to Montevideo, and Americans here have been treated to the sight of the unmistakable Broadway sign on a number of cars to which have been applied only a light paint. - It is a curious commentary in Uruguayan administration that raw material for use in manufacturing goods is taxed more heavily than the manufactured goods. The raw material for the manufacture of steam boilers is subject to a duty of about 20 per cent. Boilers imported ready for use pay a duty of about 2½ per cent. The only explanation is offered by American merchants, who declare that British influence has secured this discrimination. Whether true or not, one finds little or no manufacturing here of goods for home consumption. - A large beef extracting house has a main plant here and exports extensively, but aside from this establishment there are practically no manufactures. The business of the place is mainly the exporting of hides and the natural products of the country. - Montevideo has for many years served as a coaling station for United States ships of war. At the time of the threatened Chilean outbreak of war with the United States, a fleet of United States war vessels occupied an anchorage in Montevideo ready for a dash at the Straits of Magellan and the Chilean coal depot at Sandy Point. At present the Chilean government controls the coal output in the Straits of Magellan and supplies coal to merchant craft and men-of-war at about $21 per ton...

Public domain film from the Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coordinator_of_Inter-American_Affairs The Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs was a United States agency promoting inter-American cooperation during the 1940s, especially in commercial and economic areas. It was started in August 1940 as OCCCRBAR (Office for Coordination of Commercial and Cultural Relations between the American Republics) with Nelson Rockefeller as its head, appointed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The Office of Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs in the Executive Office of the President was formally established and enacted by US Executive Order 8840 on July 30, 1941 by President Roosevelt who named Nelson Rockefeller as the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs (CIAA). The agency's function was to distribute news, films and advertising, and to broadcast radio, in and to Latin America in order to counter Italian and German propaganda there. The CIAA grew to be a large Federal agency with a budget of $38 million by 1942 and 1,500 employees by 1943. It was later renamed the Office of Inter-American Affairs (OIAA) with slightly changed powers by Executive order 9532 on March 23, 1945... Activities In its early days, a particular concern of the CIAA was the elimination of German influence in South America, and that of other Axis powers. Trade routes to Europe were disrupted following the fall of France in June 1940, presenting opportunities to both Germany and the U.S. At the same time, many agents or affiliates of U.S. firms operating in Latin America were sympathetic to European Axis powers. The office encouraged a voluntary program of non-cooperation with companies and individuals perceived to be anti-American. To this end it cooperated secretly with British Security Coordination in New York. Though isolated in Europe, Britain maintained an extensive intelligence network in Latin America, and was happy to undermine Germany's trade efforts overseas by identifying sympathisers and agents. Through these efforts, U.S. exporters were encouraged to drop over a thousand accounts in South America during the first half of 1941. The office was also concerned with public opinion in Latin America. It translated and disseminated relevant speeches by President Roosevelt, and distributed pro-U.S materials to features syndicates in the region. It carried out audience research surveys and encouraged radio broadcasters targeting these regions to improve the quality of their programming. In order to discourage opposing views it created a 'Proclaimed List', a black-list of newspapers and radio stations owned or influenced by Axis powers. Latin American firms wishing to do business with America were discouraged from dealing with these stations. Tax incentives were also used: spending by American firms on unprofitable longwave transmission to Latin America could be deducted from income tax payments. Likewise, spending on approved advertising in Latin America became deductible from corporate income taxes. Walt Disney and a group of animators had been sent to South America in 1941 by the U.S. State Department as part of its Good Neighbor policy, and guaranteed financing for the resulting movie, Saludos Amigos. In 1944, William Benton, publisher of the Encyclopædia Britannica, had entered into unsuccessful negotiations with Disney to make six to twelve educational films annually. Disney was asked by the US Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs, Office of Inter-American Affairs (OIAA), to make an educational film about the Amazon Basin and it resulted in the 1944 animated short, The Amazon Awakens. Peacetime By an Executive order of August 31, 1945, the informational activities of the Office of Inter-American Affairs were transferred to the Department of State. It became known as the Office for Inter-American Affairs. By an Executive order of April 10, 1946, the Office was abolished and its remaining functions and responsibilities were transferred to the State Department. Soviet penetration The Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs was penetrated by Soviet intelligence during World War II... The CIAA's code name in Soviet intelligence and in the Venona project is "Cabaret"....

NEW VERSION with improved video & sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz5higmFuoE Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_Expeditionary_Force The Brazilian Expeditionary Force or BEF (Portuguese: Força Expedicionária Brasileira, or FEB) was a force about 25,700 men and women arranged by the Army and Air Force to fight alongside the Allied forces in the Mediterranean Theatre of World War II. Brazil was the only South American country to send troops to fight in the Second World War. This air-land force fought in Italy from September 1944 to May 1945, while the Brazilian Navy as well as the Air Force also acted in the Atlantic Ocean from the middle of 1942 until the end of war. During the eight months of the Italian campaign, the Brazilian Expeditionary Force managed to take 20,573 Axis prisoners, consisting of two generals, 892 officers and 19,679 other ranks. During the War, Brazil lost 948 of its own men killed in action across all three services during the Italian campaign... Preparations Soon after Brazil declared war, it began to mobilize an expeditionary force to fight in Europe. At that time, Brazil was a country with a traditionally isolationist foreign policy, a population largely rural and illiterate, an economy focused in the export of commodities, and lacking an infrastructure in industry, health and educational systems that could serve as material and human support to the war effort that a conflict of that dimension required. Brazil was thus precluded from pursuing a line of autonomous action in the conflict, and found it difficult to take even a modest role in it. It took almost two years to gather a force of one Army Division with 25,000 men (replacements included), compared with an initial goal of a whole Army Corps of 100,000, to join the Allies in the Italian Campaign. Arrival in Italy On July 2, 1944 the first five thousand BEF soldiers, the 6th Regimental Combat team, left Brazil for Europe aboard the USNS General Mann, and arrived in Italy on July 16. They disembarked in Naples, where they waited to join the US Task Force 45... The Brazilians joined what was a multinational hodgepodge of forces. The American forces included the segregated African-American 92nd Infantry Division and the Japanese-American 442nd Infantry Regiment. British Empire forces included New Zealanders, Canadians, Indians, Gurkhas, Black Africans, Jews and Arabs from the British Mandate in Palestine, South Africans, units of exiles — Poles, Greeks, Czechs, Slovakians, as well as anti-fascist Italians, also served under British command. The French forces included Senegalese, Moroccans and Algerians. In November 1944, the BEF joined General Crittenberger's U.S. IV Corps... The campaign The BEF achieved battlefield successes at Massarosa, Camaiore, Monte Prano, Monte Acuto, San Quirico, Gallicano, Barga, Monte Castello, La Serra, Castelnuovo, Soprassasso, Montese, Paravento, Zocca, Marano su Panaro, Collecchio and Fornovo... The Air Force The 1ºGAVCA (1st Fighter Group/1º Grupo de Aviação de Caça) was formed on December 18, 1943. Its commanding Officer was Ten.-Cel.-Av. (Aviation Lieutenant Colonel) Nero Moura... On September 19, 1944 the 1ºGAVCA left for Italy, arriving at Livorno on October 6. It became part of the 350th Fighter Group of the USAAF, which in turn was part of the 62nd Fighter Wing, XXII Tactical Air Command, of the 12th Air Force... In all, the 1ºGAVCA flew a total of 445 missions, 2,550 individual sorties, and 5,465 combat flight hours, from 11 November 1944 to 6 May 1945. The XXII Tactical Air Command acknowledged the efficiency of the Group by noting that although it flew only 5% of the total of missions carried out by all squadrons under its control, it accomplished a much higher percentage of the total destruction wrought...

After the war, SCADTA merged with Colombian regional carrier Colombian Air Service (Spanish: Servicio Aéreo Colombiano), or SACO. Together, SCADTA and SACO formed Avianca - Aerovías Nacionales de Colombia, the Colombian flag-carrier. After Avianca was purchased by Brazilian entrepreneur German Efromovich's company Sinergy in 2004, the name of the company was changed to Airline of the American Continent (Aerovías del Continente Americano) - Avianca). Avianca still operates to this day. SCADTA started out as a small airmail carrier using Junkers seaplanes capable of landing on Colombia's Magdalena River, mostly since there were very few suitable landing strips in Colombia at the time. The German nationality of SCADTA's ownership motivated the U.S. government to subsidize Pan American World Airways' expansion in Latin America under the Hoover administration. SCADTA was barred from operating flights to the U.S. and the Panama Canal, although it continued to maintain a broad route network throughout the Andean region. The formation of Pan American-Grace Airways (Panagra) in the 1930s further eroded SCADTA's position in the market. Prior to World War II, principal shareholder and Austrian industrialist Peter Paul Von Bauer secretly sold his shares to the Pan American World Airways in an attempt to protect the airline from acquisition by the Nazi government. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in late 1941 SCADTA was forced to cease operations and its assets were merged by the Colombian government into the state-owned airline, SACO, forming the modern Colombian national carrier: Avianca. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_American-Grace_Airways Pan American-Grace Airways, better known as Panagra, was an airline formed as a joint venture between Pan American World Airways and Grace Shipping Company. History Panagra operated flights from the United States to the Andean countries of South America, connecting as far south as Buenos Aires and Santiago, Chile. The airline was founded in 1929 to compete with SCADTA, a German-owned company, and held a quasi-monopoly over air travel in many parts of Colombia and South America during the 1940s and 1950s. Panagra merged with Braniff International Airways in 1967. Braniff operated the Panagra routes to South America until 1982, when Eastern Air Lines purchased its South American operations. Beginning in 1990, these routes were operated by American Airlines. Grace Shipping was a subsidiary of W. R. Grace and Company. W. R. Grace once had a 50% share of Pan American-Grace Airways, which also is known as Panagra through Grace Shipping.

Pentagon Asked To Work Closely With India In Maritime Domain. A key Senate panel has asked the Pentagon to reassess its approach to partner with India and cooperate with it in anti-submarine warfare, amid China’s increased naval presence in the Indian Ocean. An amendment in this regard to the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA)-2018, moved by Senator Ted Cruz, was passed by the Senate Armed Services Committee early this week. It is a part of Cruz’s effort to further implement the designation of India as a ‘Major Defence Partner’. “Few partnerships in the 21st century carry more strategic significance than United States partnership with India, the world’s largest democracy,” said Cruz’s office. “Even so, Senator Cruz believes that current bilateral cooperation and joint development need to be more closely aligned with the shared interests of maritime domain awareness and anti-submarine warfare,” it said. As such Cruz secured an amendment that calls on Department of Defence to reassess its approach to partnering with India and to appoint an individual to oversee this process. The amendment came as China increased its maritime presence in the Indian Ocean by docking its ships at ports in Karachi and Colombo. Further, the bill notes that Taiwan is a lynchpin of American national security in the Asia-Pacific and alleges that China is seeking to isolate Taiwan from its allies and partners across the globe. The NDAA-2018 amendment comes days after India and the US sought to increase their military-to-military engagement and defence trade. “The United States remains a reliable provider of advanced defence articles in support of India’s military modernisation efforts,” said a fact-sheet issued by the White House on Monday after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “United States-sourced defence articles, including the Sea Guardian Unmanned Aerial System, Apache attack helicopters, and C-17 aircraft will further enhance the capabilities of the Indian Armed Forces and provide additional opportunities for interoperability,” it said. “Completion of these sales would increase bilateral defence trade to nearly USD 19 billion, supporting thousands of United States jobs. If selected, United State offers to sell F-16 and F/A-18 fighter aircraft to India would represent the most significant defence cooperation between the United States and India to date,” the fact-sheet said. According to the fact-sheet, the US-India Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI) remains the premier forum for deepening collaboration on defence co-development and co-production. china vs japan, imperial japanese navy, japan china, japan vs china, japanese battleships, japanese navy, japanese navy ships, latest news in south china sea, news in south china sea, news south china sea, south china, south china sea, south china sea conflict, south china sea dispute, south china sea islands, south china sea latest news, south china sea map, south china sea news, the south china sea, yokosuka naval base ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.
