The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. @BruceKGagnon

Featured Space Week action - Croughton AFB in UK

National march and rally 
October 5
Croughton, England

  • Paul Mobbs – ‘Croughtonwatch’       
  • Lindis Percy – Co-founder Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases
  • David Cullen – Director, Nuclear Information Service
The new U.S. ‘Space Force’ is part of the militarisation of space. This will need ground stations like USAF Croughton, where the U.S. is spending £200m to turn the base into one of its’ largest international intelligence hubs, building the new Joint intelligence Analysis Centre (JIAC).

This major U.S. communication and intelligence base supports space communications, data links, military drone information, bomber guidance, missile defence, diplomatic communications, and command and control war fighting functions. It will be a key link in the ‘chain’ controlling US surveillance, armed drone and special forces operations across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

(RAF) USAF Croughton main gate is on the B4031, off the A43, 2 miles North of M40 junction 10, just South of Brackley, Northamptonshire.
