A navy vessel carrying drinking water and food will arrive from Fiji on Thursday, while two military aircraft will also deliver 33 tonnes of emergency supplies including drinking water, food, tents, and walkie talkies, a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said at a briefing late on Wednesday. The Chinese navy will ship bulky items such as portable cabins, tractors, generators and water pumps to Tonga in coming days, it added. Beijing claimed it was the first to supply drinking water and food supplies to Tonga on January 19, although this could not be independently verified by Reuters. The Australian and New Zealand naval vessels have also arrived in Tonga, and Canberra promised an A$3 million ($2.12 million) in humanitarian funding to Tonga. The Tongan government has said the entire population have been impacted by the ash and the tsunami.

By late 1942, the US Navy's carrier fleet in the Pacific was in poor shape. To bolster that fleet, the US Navy got a loan from Great Britain: the aircraft carrier HMS Victorious. The carrier, codenamed USS Robin, never saw action with the US, but it helped bolster the American air arm. To bolster their ally, the British Admiralty would loan the aircraft carrier HMS Victorious to the US Navy to operate in the Pacific. The Fleet Air Arm Fairey Albacore Torpedo-Bombers that she carried were replaced with TBM Avengers.

An F-35C stealth fighter crash-landed on the deck of carrier USS Carl Vinson before falling into the South China Sea this week. The "landing mishap," as the Navy characterized the crash in an official statement, occurred Monday during routine flight operations. The Navy F-35C has been touted by Lockheed Martin as "the world's only long-range stealth strike fighter designed and built explicitly for Navy carrier operations." Cancian also told the outlet he believes the plane is largely intact because it impacted the carrier deck before falling into the water. A British pilot operating off the Royal Navy flagship carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth was forced to ditch the plane in the Mediterranean.

The US military has been winding down its operations in Iraq after years of battling ISIS. Iraqi special-operations forces are continuing that fight against the remnants of the terrorist group. Those Iraqi forces have been working closely with their US counterparts for nearly 20 years. Importantly, the Iraqi special-operations forces are separate from the Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Interior, giving them more flexibility and credibility as independent actors. Shortly thereafter, these commandos merged with the battalion-sized unit to create the first Iraqi Special Operations Force Brigade.

The state-run WAM news agency said that missile fragments fell harmlessly over Abu Dhabi. Bill Urban, a spokesperson for U.S. Central Command, in a statement acknowledged the assistance of American Patriot missile batteries prevented the Houthi missiles from striking targets in Abu Dhabi. The missile fire disrupted traffic into Abu Dhabi International Airport, home to the long-haul carrier Etihad, for about an hour after the attack. The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange also fell slightly. A satellite image from Planet Labs PBC analyzed by The Associated Press early Tuesday confirmed the strike took place near the city of al-Hazm, around 840 miles southwest of Abu Dhabi.

The “Island Boys,” TikTok personalities who went viral for their widely ridiculed freestyle “I’m an Island Boy,” appeared in a recent Cameo video encouraging viewers to join the Army. The Island Boys video is the latest instance of Army recruiters’ using online platforms to reach younger people in a national labor shortage. The links would direct anyone who clicked on them to an Army recruitment form. Kelli Bland, the Army Recruitment Center’s director of public affairs, told Defense One that recruiters shouldn’t use their personal phones to promote recruitment on TikTok, either. In a letter last month, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., urged Army Secretary Christine Wormuth to disclose the percentage of Army recruiters using TikTok on their personal devices to promote recruitment.

Black claimed Harris had a "war council" of Apollo staff, law firms, and publicists to oust him. Black's latest filing sheds light on the animosity between him and Harris and even criticizes Harris' management at the private-equity giant. As for the use of Apollo staff for Harris' family office business, Rosen told Insider that "any allocations were pursuant to Apollo policies, overseen by Apollo." Black claimed Harris shopped around for lawyers and firms willing to take on lawsuits against him, including Ganieva's eventual suit against him in New York state court. Evan Farber, a partner at Loeb & Loeb and an attorney for Rubenstein, also denied Black's allegations.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin briefed President Joe Biden on Saturday about U.S. options for responding if Russia invades Ukraine, as well as options for U.S. military movements in advance of an invasion, according to a defense official and a senior administration official. Austin presented options to reassure NATO allies and reinforce their defenses, specifically the defenses of those countries bordering Ukraine, the officials said. The briefing for Biden included the latest intelligence that the Russian military has not stopped building up forces around Ukraine, the officials said. Another defense official said Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to add more military units and flow forces to the border areas around Ukraine. “He’s getting stronger, literally by the day,” the defense official said.

President Joe Biden began his term with moves that bucked establishment thinking on US foreign policy. A February speech pledged to "course-correct our foreign policy" with a "global posture review," floating a fundamental rethink of where US forces were stationed and why. In the same speech, Biden promised to end American support for the Saudi war in Yemen, including relevant arms sales. Sadly, the ugly press of the Kabul fiasco also appears to have tempered Biden's bucking of the foreign policy establishment. If the president wants a foreign policy legacy that truly transforms, he should avoid it and trust his initial restraining instincts moving forward.

The USS Harry S. Truman carrier strike group entered the Mediterranean sea last week amid growing tensions with Russia. Department of Defense Press Secretary John Kirby told reporters the carrier group will "demonstrate NATO's ability to integrate the high-end maritime strike capabilities of an aircraft carrier strike group to support the deterrence and defense of the alliance." The carrier Truman is accompanied by the US cruiser San Jacinto and the destroyers Bainbridge, Cole, Gravely and Jason Dunham. The NATO exercise will last 12 days, starting January 24 and ending on February 4. Other NATO allies — including Denmark, Lithuania, Spain, France, and The Netherlands — are also deploying fighter jets and ships into Eastern Europe.

Crosland said Smith-Fields' family has been told the man is not a person of interest in the case — a move the family considers "unacceptable," he said. "The Police Department has been racially insensitive to this family and has treated this family with no respect and has violated their civil rights," the notice says. Bridgeport police did not return requests for comment about specific allegations made by Smith-Fields' family and their attorney. "They played some games, ate some food, and started to watch a movie," the incident report states. When she came back inside, the man told police, she went straight to the bathroom and stayed there for 10 to 15 minutes.

KARACHI, Pakistan, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Pakistan reported on Friday over 7,000 COVID-19 cases in a single day, its highest daily number of infections since the pandemic began, as the south Asian nation imposes new restrictions to curb the fast-spreading Omicron variant. Karachi, the country’s largest city, recorded its highest ever positivity ratio of 46.58% in the last 24 hours. He said the number of hospitalisations are rising, citing the on-going wedding season for the rapid spread of the virus. About 70 million people in Pakistan, or 32% of the population, have had two vaccine doses. The infection numbers are lower compared to other countries, such as neighbouring India - but Pakistan tests 50 to 60 thousand people a day with a population of 220 million compared to India where around 1.9 million tests are being done per day.

A US Military drone unit struck Syria's largest dam in 2017, despite it being on a 'no-strike' list, The New York Times reported. The New York Times reported that the strike used some of the largest conventional bombs. Tens of thousands were at risk of flooding in a narrowly avoided catastrophe, according to the report. At the time of the strike, ISIS occupied the region in Syria and oversaw the operation of the dam. "The destruction would have been unimaginable," the dam's former director told The Times on condition of anonymity.

Navy/Handout via REUTERSBEIJING, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Chinese forces followed and warned away a U.S. warship which entered waters near the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea, the country's military said on Thursday, in the latest uptick in tensions in the disputed waterway. The United States frequently carries out what it calls freedom of navigation missions in the South China Sea to challenge Chinese territorial claims. The South China Sea has become one of many flashpoints in the testy relationship between China and the United States, with Washington rejecting what it calls unlawful territorial claims by Beijing. China claims vast swaths of the South China Sea.

The broad review of counterterrorism policy actually wrapped up several weeks ago, someone familiar with the deliberations told me. For now, it seems, the promised root-and-branch reformation of America's counterterrorism policy is shaping up to be something more like a seasonal pruning. 'Over the horizon capabilities'The drone program, which is still under review, presents a particularly thorny set of issues for Biden. To hear them tell it, the issue of drone strikes is primarily a matter of degree. The new reporting is a stunning refutation of the core justifications given for the drone program during Obama's presidency.

REUTERS/Annabelle ChihTAIPEI, Jan 20 (Reuters) - Taiwan will mandate the use of passes that provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry into entertainment venues, the government said on Thursday, as it seeks to reduce infection risks while tackling a small rise in domestic Omicron cases. The Central Epidemic Command Centre said that from Friday entry into venues including bars and night clubs would require proof of full vaccination, either by showing a physical vaccine card or a new digital card. Taiwan has kept the pandemic well under control thanks to strict border measures enacted early on and a highly efficient tracing system.

The US Navy conducted a freedom-of-navigation operation near contested territory in the South China Sea on Thursday. The US Navy said in an official statement that "unlawful and sweeping maritime claims in the South China Sea pose a serious threat to the freedom of the seas, including the freedoms of navigation and overflight, free trade and unimpeded commerce, and freedom of economic opportunity for South China Sea littoral nations." Although the US Navy regularly conducts FONOPs, not just in the contested South China Sea but around the world, China claims sovereignty over large swaths of the South China Sea and objects publicly whenever these operations occur. The Paracel Islands have long been disputed territory, with China, Vietnam, and Taiwan all claiming sovereignty. China maintains practical control of the area, having built 20 outposts in the Paracel Islands as it continues to tighten its grip on the South China Sea.

Greece's tier-one special-operations unit earned top marks from NATO's Special Operations Forces Headquarters in December. Evaluators from the NATO Special Operations Forces Headquarters (NSHQ) traveled to Greece and put the country's elite special operators through the wringer. The Greek special-operations unit is composed of six teams that are separated based on their infiltration specialty. NATO first began coordinating its special-operations capability in 2006 with the creation of the NATO Special Operations Coordination Center (NSCC). In a recent gathering of NATO special operators, Gen. Richard Clarke, commander of US Special Operations Command, highlighted the importance of NATO's special-operations community.

The New York Times obtained videos from the US military of a drone strike in Afghanistan that killed civilians. The August 29 strike killed 10 civilians, including 7 children, and has been called a "tragic mistake." In December, The New York Times reported that no one involved in the drone strike will receive any form of punishment. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin during the same hearing confirmed that the military knew civilians were killed "several hours" after the strike. But it took weeks for the Pentagon to fully acknowledge that civilians were killed in the botched strike.
