Iran is Nuclear Now! With Weapons Development and Delivery Systems

Aug 27, 2015 — Paul E. Vallely

Since 1979, a cabal of nations has aided and abetted Iran in its efforts to develop a robust nuclear program under the guise of generating a nuclear energy system. This cabal is mainly comprised of Russia, China, and North Korea. Since sanctions began being placed on Iran in 1979, with more added since, Iran still had enough free reign to develop its capabilities despite the sanctions regime because of this cabal. All the moving parts are in place, the material is there, and this means they are already nuclear – “break out” is imminent now.

During this period, North Korea had evaded sanctions, and like Iran, lied, cheated, and broke virtually every agreement it ever signed with the United Nations. Now North Korea is a nuclear weapons power, and we believe Iran has already done the same. Each had created hidden facilities but only North Korea has actually tested weapons fully. Because Iran has to date only detonated trigger devices that does not mean the Mullahs do not have weapons capability now because they certainly have enough material.

Historic Mistake

Jul 19, 2015 — Paul E. Vallely

I have had the opportunity over the past 12 years to be a member of the Iran Policy Planning Group and have engaged in a positive manner with the members of the Iran opposition who defected from Iran after the Shah fell.

My heart and soul yearned with them that the tyrannical government under the ayatollahs would be replaced by a democratic government. But that has never happened. All we have seen is an evil and radical Islamic regime gain in strength over the years and support international terrorism, torture and murder of its own people and others throughout the world.

Message from MG Paul E. Vallely. US Army Ret

Nov 11, 2014 — Paul E. Vallely

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect. On November 11, 1919, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time. In 1919, President Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory”. There were plans for parades, public meetings and a brief suspension of business activities at 11am.

America Has Come to a Crossroads

May 24, 2014 — Paul E. Vallely

How and can America recover from it its economic, political and cultural spiral? It seems or appears too many of us here and abroad that the United States is in a continual downward spiral but the challenges can be overcome and we can recover and spiral upward! How many more scandals do Americans have to endure to express a “no confidence” vote in our national leadership? And now the VA scandal spreading like wildfire through this over-bureaucratic, incompetent organization. What we are witnessing is ”Highly Organized Negligence”

Benghazi – Where was the Commander-in-Chief?

Feb 9, 2013 — Paul E. Vallely

After the testimonies of Secretary Panetta, General Dempsey, and Hillary Clinton on the Benghazi tragedy, it appears the Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama was off duty and not available to make a hard decision to press the military Chain of Command to rescue Americans under attack. The cover up appears to be a White House order to “Stand Down” and not issue a rescue mission operational order. For over seven hours he did nothing; no communications with his National Security team, and then he flew to Las Vegas for a campaign stop. “Weakness and dithering and flying to Las Vegas the next day for celebrity fund-raising parties are somehow better.”

The Obama Military – Evolution and Legacy

Jan 18, 2013 — Paul E. Vallely

Forward – The Commander-in-Chief

Throughout the 236 years of US history, military forces have experienced numerous transformations in roles and missions, structure and procedures, reputation and power, technological advancement, and ultimately application and operation in combat. Initially the Army, Navy, and Marines were organized as an armed force of fighters and patriots against the tyranny of Great Britain. They banded together to win a revolution and historically became a force for securing the fledgling nation. Over the many decades and centuries, it expanded, evolved, and eventually became the strongest military force on Earth. These changes all reflected the need and threats of the day and the political will of the government and its elected officials.

The Battle is at Our Front Door

May 31, 2012 — Paul E. Vallely

Yes, America, you are watching the suicide of a great country due to the actions of Mr. Obama and his Progressive Socialist supporters/followers, union and radical thugs, and his ardent admirers in the press and Hollywood. They are destroying the country through corruption and ineptitude and are not giving up on ‘fundamentally changing’ America. We must understand that they have an “Agenda” and are implementing it.

“Winds of Revolution”

May 13, 2012 — Paul E. Vallely

Yes, America, you are watching the suicide of a great country Mr. Obama and his Progressive Socialists supporters/followers, union and radical thugs, and ardent admirers. They are self-destructing from corruption and ineptitude but are not giving up on fundamentally changing America. We must understand that they have an “Agenda” and are following that “Agenda”. I am finally sensing that Americans are starting to wake up and the winds of a new revolution are swirling to save the country.

Afghanistan – the Charade

Mar 21, 2012 — Paul E. Vallely

A charade is defined in several ways but in this case the best definition is an empty act or pretense. Similarly, a Victory simply means winning. I have some questions for our civilian and military leadership today regarding a war that is appearing more and more like an empty act that seems to be losing its character and “raison d’etre”. It clearly does not reflect victory either.

Staying Alive as a Nation - American Pursuit of Greatness

Dec 14, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

From: “The Dragon Lies Bleeding” - Hammerfall

“Ride through the valley in thunder and rain. The battle is raging, redeem this domain. The castle of Eden lies silent above. Darkness surrounded us, away we must go. I look through the eyes of the world. I see there are strangers among us. Awaiting a sign from above. To conquer the power and the glory. Enter the battle, our will to enchain. Bringing us forward, defeating the pain. Into the meeting with swords made of steel. We’re standing together the secret reveals. Come across to the Promised Land. Close your eyes, I will take your hand. Through the river of steel we’ll go. When the dragon lies bleeding.

Stand Up America National Call to Battle Series “To Secure the Nation”

Dec 13, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

As the Declaration of Independence states:

“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

Stand Up America Special Report from the Middle East and Libya

Aug 25, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

Muammar Qaddafi, his sons and military and political elite are reported by sources to have abandoned their Bab al Aziziya fortress early Tuesday, Aug. 23, using his son Saif al-Islam’s surreal appearance before foreign reporters earlier in the day to cover their escape. Our sources believe they exited the compound through one of the underground tunnels of the compound’s military complex. But regional intelligence experts are baffled by the enigma of the mysterious sudden disappearance of Qaddafi’s divisions overnight. It’s as though the ground swallowed them up leaving no trace.

No one knows Qaddafi’s destination but informed observers expect him to make for Sebha in southern Libya where the local tribes are loyal to whom and where he established a whole range of subterranean military facilities. And that is where he located Libyan nuclear facilities in 2000, which he later agreed to dismantle. Qaddafi may have equipped a place of asylum at Sebha with military and residential facilities from which to launch a guerilla war against whomsoever takes power in Tripoli and against NATO targets in Libya and Europe, as punishment for his downfall.

Stand Up America News Alert

Aug 23, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

In contrast to the international and Arab response toward Qaddafi, the Arab states have hesitated to adopt an assertive stance against Assad. Yet five months and two thousand dead later, different voices are starting to emerge. 

First, the joint statement by the Gulf Cooperation Council, which called for Syria to stop “the lethal oppression of its citizens,” and later the Saudi King’s statement, unusual for its severity, which declared that what is happening in Syria “is unacceptable to Saudi Arabia, which demands an end to the killing machine.” This statement testifies to Saudi Arabia’s positioning itself against the radical front led by Iran - after it previously did so in Bahrain - as it understands that the events in Syria have reached a critical level that may tip the balance against the Assad dynasty. This joins Saudi Arabia’s adoption of a more assertive stance since the start of the uprisings in the Arab world and its attempt to redraw the map of regional alliances in accordance with its interests.

Revise US Military Strategy Now – Part II

Aug 6, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

Released By: Stand Up America

Thirty-one US Special Operations Forces (Navy Seal Six members reportedly) killed in a helicopter crash today in Afghanistan south of Kabul (may have been a Taliban shoulder held missile).  Iran is controlling more each day the future of Iraq. General Qassem Suleimani, the Iranian General ‘secretly running’ Iraq and Commander of the Al-Quds Force with so much Iraqi influence that Baghdadis believe he is controlling the country. The Commander of the Iranian Quds force controls more of what goes on inside Iraq than the United States does. There appears to be no achievable victories for the United States in either country.

The Fifth Column Sabotage Against The USA and Our Critical Infrastructure

Jul 31, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

The Development and Execution of Joint Operations (both Civilian and Military) to respond to dynamic threats against the United States has now reached a point of criticality. Over the course of the last several years, some Americans are gradually waking up to the fact that our “essence of being” as a nation and as individuals is under a constant state of attack and this attack has been implemented methodically and slowly over time by enemies who despise our way of life. What is occurring to the great country is so heinous that it patronizes each one of us, who we are, our heritage and what we stand for as a nation.

During World War II, America, The Sleeping Giant, as quoted by the Japanese Admiral Yamamoto, woke up; and The Greatest Generation as noted by Tom Brokaw, stood up and went off to fight “The Total Collective Effort of Evil” in their time.

An American Tragedy:  The Sleeping Giant Must Wake Up

Jul 23, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

Many of us who were alive during World War II and slightly thereafter may remember the famous quote regarding America being the “sleeping giant”. ‘Be fearful of waking her!” Do not wake a sleeping giant. This is an idiom which means: Do not disturb/annoy/provoke someone powerful who was not disturbing you in the first place. Japan woke a sleeping giant when they invaded Pearl Harbor.

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto is portrayed at the very end of the 1970 film Tora! Tora! Tora!, and in the 2001 film Pearl Harbor, as saying after his attack on Pearl Harbor, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”  The quotation was abbreviated in the film Pearl Harbor (2001), where it merely read, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant.”

The Art of War Series

Jul 22, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

In war, military strategy is tailored to meet the enemy’s threat, to persuade those who might fight not to fight, and when necessary, to win and achieve Victory in the shortest possible time. In the War against Global Jihad (that should include Iran) and its network of enablers, America’s top leadership appears to be achieving the opposite outcome.  American soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines are rightly lauded by the American public for their courage and sacrifice in the fight for United States national security, but the high quality of American soldiers and Marines at battalion level and below cannot compensate for inadequate senior leadership at the highest levels in war.

Today, the senior leadership of the U.S. armed forces is overly bureaucratic, process oriented and risk averse in a prevailing forward strategy.  Competent Generals and Admirals must communicate to their civilian superiors the truth of what is really happening and what actions and resources are required for success and Victory. War has no place for political correctness or lack of vision and incompetence.

Your Mission is to put America Back on the Constitutional Track

Jul 12, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

Congress, you are continuing down the path of destroying America. Please realize that we do not need you in our lives as much as you think we do. You are “sucking the oxygen” out of America and its people with all this legislation and big government. Enough is Enough......! Balance the Federal Budget, create a surplus and eliminate our national debt. No more games. No more rhetoric. Eliminate 47 % of our Federal government of structure and bureaucracy. Stop foreign aid until we start running surpluses in our budget. Stop funding the United Nation. We need term limits on elected officials more now than ever.

Obama Announces Wrong Strategy For Afghanistan

Jun 28, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

It has been apparent to many military analysts, including me, that for years now the Counterinsurgency (COIN) strategy in the Global War against Radical Islam has been ill conceived and poorly executed. This strategy has not produced victories for the United States in the Middle East and Afghanistan. In fact, this area of the world has been a giant “sponge” of our human and financial resources with billions of dollars unaccounted for and wasted to great degrees on countries that do not respect us or our way of living.

Revise US Military Strategy Now Joint Force Strike Operations

Jun 13, 2011 — Paul E. Vallely

To date, government policy elitists in the United States have demonstrated almost complete ignorance towards revised, adaptive and forward strategic planning. While virtually every military officer and many policy “wonks” have been taught strategic planning at some level, it is obvious many have thrown most of the lessons out the door upon graduating. This is demonstrated more than ever by our senior Generals, Admirals, and Defense and State Department and Intelligence political appointees. One only needs to observe the international scene and turmoil in Afghanistan and the Middle East. The time is now to change strategy and reposition our Forces for present and future operation.
