REUTERS/Mike BlakeDUBAI (Reuters) - U.S. aircraft carrier USS Nimitz was deployed to the Gulf this week, days before the killing of Iran’s top nuclear scientist, although the U.S. Navy said on Saturday the deployment was not related to any specific threat. “There were no specific threats that triggered the return of the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group,” Commander Rebecca Rebarich, spokeswoman for the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet, said in an emailed statement after the carrier deployed on Wednesday. Rebarich said the redeployment was related to a U.S. drawdown in Iraq and Afghanistan. “This action ensures we have sufficient capability available to respond to any threat and to deter any adversary from acting against our troops during the force reduction,” she said.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday that it had lodged an official protest with the United States over a naval incident in the Sea of Japan, which it said was a provocation designed to disturb the peace. Russia had said on Tuesday that one of its warships had caught and chased off a U.S. destroyer operating illegally in its territorial waters in the Sea of Japan. The U.S. Navy denied wrongdoing and accused Moscow of making excessive maritime claims.

The Pentagon also recorded more than 1,300 newly confirmed cases of Covid-19 among the sister service branches, a new record for the military in a 24-hour period.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised Jonathan Pollard, an American who spent 30 years in U.S. prison for spying for Israel, a warm welcome and a comfortable life in Israel now that parole restrictions have ended. Pollard, 66, said he and his spouse would go to Israel to live, but no date for their travel has been announced. While in prison, the Texas-born Pollard was granted Israeli citizenship, and Israel had long pushed for his release but was spurned by several U.S. presidents. A U.S. Central Intelligence Agency “damage assessment”, made public in 1987, said Pollard had believed U.S. intelligence support of close ally Israel was inadequate. “I truly want to congratulate you that your nightmare is over and you can return home, to Israel,” Netanyahu told Pollard.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday one of its warships caught and chased off a U.S. destroyer operating illegally in its territorial waters in the Sea of Japan, but the U.S. Navy denied wrongdoing by its vessel and accused Moscow of making excessive maritime claims. The Admiral Vinogradov, a Russian destroyer, verbally warned USS John S. McCain, a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer, and threatened to ram it in order to force it to leave the area, prompting it to return to neutral waters, Moscow said. Russia said its Pacific Fleet warship had been tracking the American destroyer in the Peter the Great Gulf, and that the U.S. vessel had violated Russia’s territorial waters at 0317 GMT by going two kilometres beyond the sea border. “USS John S. McCain was not ‘expelled’ from any nation’s territory.”The U.S. destroyer made no further attempts to enter Russian waters after leaving the area, Moscow said. The Admiral Vinogradov was continuing to observe its movements and another vessel, a corvette, was dispatched to the area, it added.

Breakingviews - Cox: Donald Trump is the new Benjamin Harrison

NEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) - Eight years ago, New York Magazine proclaimed Benjamin Harrison the most forgotten of America’s commanders in chief. Donald Trump’s turbulent stint as a fellow one-term president may, ironically, revive interest in his 19th century Republican forebear’s four years in the White House. But in style, and substance, Trump looks to be more like Harrison, the man who Cleveland bookended. Like the Trump White House, Harrison’s was rife with infighting. Which president Trump most closely follows is still to be seen – but if it’s raining when inauguration day arrives on Jan. 20, don’t expect the outgoing 45th to keep his successor dry.

Since 2017, the US and Russian navies have been the only two navies that operate guided-missile cruisers. With the retirement of the Dutch-built cruiser Almirante Grau by the Peruvian Navy in 2017, only two countries now operate cruisers: Russia and the United States. Russia has three Slava-class guided-missile cruisers in service while the United States has 22 Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruisers. Naturally, we've got to ask… in a one-on-one fight, would a Russian missile cruiser win or would an American? So in a fight between a Russian missile cruiser and an American missile cruiser, who would win?

Economic and trade sanctions have become a top U.S. foreign-policy tool for the Trump administration, and that would be unlikely to change under his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

ChinaMany expect the tensions and some of the restrictions placed on China by the Trump administration to continue even if Mr. Biden wins. Mr. Biden has called the North Korean leader a thug and said he would be tougher on North Korea. “The reason he would not meet with President Obama is because President Obama said we’re going to talk about denuclearization.

After serving overseas, military service members return home to face a new economic reality that often includes, unfortunately, lenders looking to take advantage of their vulnerability. Unscrupulous auto lenders and credit card companies have also been known to target members of the military. The government has moved to crack down on predatory lending, enacting the Military Lending Act in 2006. Not only does predatory lending cause undue financial stress, it can also negatively impact a soldier’s military readiness, said Falcone. Predatory lenders like to prey on young military members because they’re often inexperienced with money, have little to no credit and are usually very excited to spend that first paycheck.-Tara Falcone FOUNDER OF REISUP4.

Transitioning from a civilian life to military life can be difficult, especially as a spouse. But former hedge fund analyst and wife to an officer in the U.S. Navy, Tara Falcone says spouses of service members do have options when it comes to creating wealth. Control your investment planYou don’t have to have a career to generate wealth for your family. While the Spousal IRA is not reserved solely for military spouses, the high unemployment rate among military spouses — as high as 24% in recent years — makes it popular. While the amount of money in the fund can vary, most financial experts recommend at least six months of living expenses.
