The first is from a 22 January 1969 briefing for a visiting Army general (LGEN F. CHESAREK). The second set are from GENERAL ABRAMS Weekly Intelligence Estimate Update (WIEU) of 1 February 1969, attended by 17 flag officers (including VADM ZUMWALT) and 3 colonels… (1) Brief on 22 Jan…. BRIEFER: “Since 1 January 1969 7,900 men have entered the infiltration pipeline (Ho Chi Minh Trail). Four large 4000-series groups totaling 9,700 men are believed to be associated with the 304th NVA Division. Infiltration apparently began again on 23 November 1968. We estimate that 182 tons of supplies were transported each day by truck along Routes 1AC and 101C from Dong Hoi toward the DMZ. Over 500 trucks were detected on 19 and 20 January.” … ABRAMS: “Whatever interdiction effort we put in there last week didn’t seem to reduce it over the previous week.”… BRIEFER: “A computerized program known as TRAP (traffic reporting and analysis program) shows ‘just about half of this’ estimate on traffic getting through was produced by conventional means. (Including the EC-47Q… see below in lost aircraft ).”… ABRAMS: “Well, I just urge you to get together. I’m getting a little disturbed here. This road watch team, and the evidence that Mr. Shackley (Theodore Shakley was CIA’s chief of station, Saigon, during the period December 1968-February 1972–the period of COMMANDO HUNT) is conducting a private intelligence thing. And we’ve got Ambassador Sullivan (Laos), he’s got a private intelligence system. Who is responsible?…I think I’m responsible for this thing over here, the flow of stuff into South Vietnam. I believe that is very clear. If I am, then I have to be served by all intelligence, and the best intelligence that there is! It’s just sound fundamental principle. And we can’t have a lot of g-damn private intelligence games going on! You’re not responsible. Shackley’s not responsible, and Sullivan’s not responsible. I am! That’s where the –you don’t pass the buck past here. So I want this straightened out, and right now! I don’t know why that road watch team’s down there. Who’s it serving?’… MAJOR GENERAL DAVISON: “Well, it’s serving all of us to some extent, sir. It’s directed, however, by the chief CIA man in Ambassador Sullivan’s office. But as far as I know, we get all the reports from them, for what they’re worth–which incidentally I don’t think is very much.” … ABRAMS: “Are those (road watch teams) more reliable than the sensors (Task Force Alpha/IGLOO WHITE)?… DAVIDSON: “No, sir. I think it’s a good deal less reliable.”… ABRAMS: You get in the intelligence business and you take unreliable stuff and reliable stuff, add it up, and take a mean–see, it’s not good. What you should be served is the best intelligence, and not take a mean of all the crap that’s thrown into the system…. We’ve also been prevented from hitting targets (with B-52s) because of the presence of road watch teams…. I spoke out about your computer program. I don’t mean I’m against it, because we’ve recognized here every Saturday that we’ve got trouble estimating this tonnage. There’s an awful lot we don’t know–about trucks that get knocked out or that sort of thing. But we do–we need to pull together… and most of all we don’t want to kid ourselves…. All of our people have got to realize what this war is all about. It isn’t that you…lay around in your base camp waiting for somebody to sight a division marching down the road, and then you sally forth and you know, take the (enemy) division on. This war is far more complex than that…. We don’t want anybody to be–this idea of, ‘Well, the people, that’s NVA if we can find them.’ That’s no good. It won’t work. And that applies to every U.S. commander.”… ALSO, THIS EXCHANGE: General ABRAMS explains the Saturday WIEU conferences to the visiting LGEN… ABRAMS : “We devote Saturdays to wrestling with this thing (running the war). We try to generally have one or two things that have been done in depth over a period of time, trying to challenge what we think. The intelligence is the most important part of this whole damn thing. And if that’s good, then you can–. We’ve got–we keep saying here we got enough stuff (to fight the war). We can handle anything. I think we can handle anything he wants to do–if our intelligence is good. But if we’ve got resources in the wrong place, if we’ve plumped them into a– I’m talking about getting a division somewhere, or getting a bunch of B-52s or tac air and all that stuff, or moving artillery or throwing the mobile marine force around in the wrong place and so on. You do a lot of that and when you–that’s no good. We haven’t got enough (stuff) to do that.”… (2) A few snips from the 1 Feb 1969 WIEU… ABRAMS: (Discussing estimates of enemy logistical throughput)… “We don’t want to kid ourselves on this. He’s got a few more cards to play. And what we said before is still right–we’ve got the tickets, but we ‘ve got to play them right–and not, you know–throw them in the air.”… GENERAL DAVIDSON: “Nobody has any idea what the enemy was able to stockpile previous to this campaign in the A Shau Valley and Laos.”… ABRAMS : “It’s a little unsettling these caches that they got south of the DMZ. It looks like there’s more going on there than we thought.”… BGEN CLAY: “Comparing last season–January 1968–he’s about two and one-half months behind the logistics delivery schedule that he achieved for the Tet Offensive. The significance of the campaign this year is that we dried out his stockpiles in I and II Corps, which is why he withdrew. This year, the difference between last year’s campaign and the current one is that, in addition to killing about 15 percent of the trucks, in the past two months you have stopped or blocked or checked between 50 and 75 percent of his supply flow. And at this point last season, for the Tet Offensive, his stocks were built up and he was ready to go. And he is roughly two and a half months behind that schedule this year. And starting next week, it’s going to be very unpleasant around here. The floodgates are opening, and this stuff is going to start coming in a torrent. We’re going to be competing for B-52 sorties, as we predicted we would be, at the point where that logistic wave reaches a crest. And I would guess from the rate of the flow that he’s now achieving that it will be March before he achieves what he achieved by the 30th of January last season. The essential difference between the campaigns–you’re killing the same percentage of trucks killed last season, but you’re blocking much more of the traffic.” … ABRAMS: “Well, the other thing about last year–you know we’ve got this theory that it was supposed to go in March (the offensive) and instead of that he decided he’d kick it off at the end of January…. He seemed to have plenty of stuff around.”… And the final comment of the 1 February WIEU: ABRAMS: “Incidentally, last week I went over to U Tapao and visited the operation there. The real purpose was to let them know over there how much their work was appreciated, and also the skill with which we think it’s being executed. You know, half of all B-52 strikes are run out of U Tapao. And I suppose I should have known it, but didn’t, that the entire refueling operation for this part of the world is run out of there–the whole tanker thing. ..forty KC-135s. Professionally, I found it quite an exhilarating experience. That is a real professional outfit over there. It’s up tight and it’s really impressive. If an aircraft goes down over Laos, for example: whatever anybody wants to get these pilots out, they throw it in there. And here comes the refueling to guarantee that it’ll be sustained. It’s really impressive. 3,300 SAC people there. The thoroughness and the precision with which it all moves along, and quite a few things have to be done.”… END ABRAMS TAPE snips… FIXED WING AIRCRAFT LOSSES IN SOUTHEAST ASIA DURING WEEK THIRTEEN OF COMMANDO HUNT I (Sources include Chris Hobson’s VIETNAM: AIR LOSSES)… Six aircraft and fourteen American warriors were killed during the week… They are remembered here… (1) On 4 February an F-8H of the VF-24 Checkertails embarked in USS Hancock and piloted by LTJG PAUL EUGENE SWIGART hit the ramp and went over the side of the carrier after returning from a CAP mission. LTJG SWIGART was killed in the accident and went down with the Crusader. As with most crashes at sea bodies of the dead are rarely recovered and LTJG SWIGART , a brave MiG fighter rests in peace in the Gulf of Tonkin. He is memorialized with thousands of other fallen warriors who remain missing-at-sea at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego… LTJG SWIGART had survived an earlier ejection from an F-8 in September 1968… (2) On 5 February an EC-47Q of the 362nd TEWS and 460th TRW was lost on a COMMANDO HUNT mission while searching for enemy troops on the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Southern Laos. The aircraft was downed by enemy ground fire and a six day search for the aircraft and her crew failed to find the wreckage or the ten men in her crew. Eight months later the wreckage was found near Ban Phan and a team was inserted into the hostile area to recover the human remains found at the site. They were returned to the United States for burial in a communal grave at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis since positive identification could not be made for all members of the crew. Resting in peace, as they died, together–they are: MAJOR HOMER MORGAN LYNN; CAPTAIN WALTER FRANCIS BURKE; MAJOR HARRY TILMAN NIGGLE; MAJOR ROBERT EUGENE OLSON; MSGT WILTON NEIL HATTON; SSGT JAMES VERNON DORSEY; SSGT RODNEY HERSCHEL GOTT; SSGT HUGH LESLIE SHERMAN; SSGT HUGH LESLIE SHERBURN; TSGT LOUIS JOHN CLEVER and SGT CLARENCE LEON McNEILL… They are remembered fifty years later with respect and admiration and thoughts of the families they left behind. (And here’s a Humble Host Ripple Salvo (arm-up and fire away) note: In the Vietnam War era there was a $10,000 government provided insurance policy on each of our warriors (increased to $12,000 after the war) –not exactly the hundreds of thousands (and now, paid-off home mortgages) available to the warriors of today. In addition, so many of our servicemen were KIA that American insurance companies were forced to run life insurance premiums into the unaffordable category. In my case, I found Rio Grande Insurance Services would cover tailhookers who were being shot at for $25,000 for a premium that exceeded my combat pay. As a consequence of their noble decision to insure warriors, Rio Grande went broke and my policy was assumed by another insurance company willing to take a risk on a customer who was flying combat on a regular basis. “Gold Star” families and kids of the Vietnam War were on their own. So it was in those days. I thought you ought to know that the Vietnam warriors, like the Korean “police action” warriors before them, were pretty much uninsurable and out-of-sight, out-of-mind of the American people, including their Presidents and congressional representatives. And since most of the surviving Vietnam and Korean veterans served and retired before “9/11” they have been specifically excluded from the expansive benefits bestowed by a grateful nation on the “post 9/11” veterans. Go figure…. “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.”…Calvin Coolidge… )… Ammo minus, swiches safe… Comment?… (3) On 5 February an F-105D of the 355th TFS was damaged beyond repair in a ground accident at Takhli. (4) On 7 February an F-4J of the VFMA-334 Falcons and MAG-13 out of Chu Lai crewed by CAPTAIN RICHARD AUGUSTINE DELEIDI, USMC, and 1LT J.W. MAXWELL, USMC, was hit by ground fire on a second attack on a close air support mission a few miles west of Danang. CAPTAIN DELEIDI was able to fly the burning Phantom east over the Gulf where the two aviators were to eject. 1LT MAXWELL was severely injured in the process but was rescued by a Marine helo. CAPTAIN MAXWELL, unable to eject, was killed as the aircraft crashed at sea. His remains were not recovered and rest where he fell fifty years ago… (5) On 7 February an F-100D Super Sabre of the 416th TFS and 37th TFW out of Phu Cat piloted by CAPTAIN THOMAS EDWARD CLARK was downed on a COMMANDO HUNT mission while attacking an enemy anti-aircraft site 25 miles west of the DMZ on the Ho Chi Minh Trail at Ban Kapay. CAPTAIN CLARK did not eject and was killed in the crash. He was listed as Missing-in-Action until 1973 when the POWs came home and CAPTAIN CLARK was not among them. His remains were recovered in November 2005 and identified in June 2011. MAJOR CLARK, promoted while MIA, was buried in a family plot with his mother and father at the St. Mark Catholic Cemetery in his home town of Emporium, Pennsylvania. He is remembered in this fiftieth year anniversary of his last flight in the service of our country… (6) On 8 February and A-4E of the VA-164 Ghost Riders embarked in USS Hancock flown by LCDR ROGER ALLEN MEYERS was launched on a night COMMANDO HUNT mision but was seen to settle off the catapult, crash into the sea and explode. There was no ejection and subsequent searches failed to recovery the body of LCR MEYERS. He rests where he fell fifty years ago on the last day of combat for the deployment. The Hancock completed her fifth combat cruise and arrived back in North Island on 3 March having lost 3 A-4s and an F-8 in combat operations and six F-8s and an A-4 in accidents. There are no easy days… or night cat shots… RIPPLE SALVO–FOR THE RECORD… “A PLAN TO ‘JAR’ NORTH VIETNAM INTO GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT PEACE”… President Nixon was elected on his promise to end the war in Vietnam. He said he had a plan to end the war. He got elected. Now he needed a plan. On 21 January 1969 his National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger issued National Security Study Memoranda #1 to determine the status of the war in Vietnam. Responses from CIA, State and Defense led to the initial meeting of the Nixon National Security Council at the White House on 25 January. Mr. Philip Habib, member of the U.S. Paris negotiating team provided an up-to-date on the status of the Paris peace negotiations President Nixon inherited from the Johnson Administration. He made the following points (Ref: FRUS, Vietnam, Jan 1969-July 1970, p. 33)… I quote… –U.S. kicked off (peace talks in May 1968) with a limited bombing pause. –Hanoi insisted on total halt and was noncommital on what would follow. –U.S. insisted that while we were willing to stop bombing we wanted assurances that serious negotiations would follow. –Negotiations started slowly with typical propaganda theme. Hanoi would not engage in discussion of gut issues. –Hanoi continued to demur until private talks with Vance and Habib indicated they might be willing to do something. –In two months, U.S. got “a basic understanding,” (or thought they did) which included: (1) cessation of U.S. bombing and all acts involving the use of force against the Territory of North Vietnam. At this point, Mr. Habib implied that the North Vietnamese understood that we would continue reconnaissance operations over North Vietnam. In response to the above, North Vietnam assured us that (1) they would respect the DMZ by not moving through it or massing north of it, (2) discontinue indiscriminate attacks on major cities, such as Saigon, Danang and Hue. Attacks included not only ground attacks but shelling and mortaring. — While the North Vietnamese never subscribed to the above agreement, they “understood that if it were broken, talks could not be conducted.” While there was no written agreement to this ” understanding,” the North Vietnamese understood what we expected. –U.S. side believes the Soviets moved in and applied some moderate pressure at this point and also felt that the approaching election also exerted pressure on the NorthVietnamese. –Initially, Hanoi did not want the GVN (South Vietnam) in the picture. This was the genesis of “our side-your side” formula which was to permit a “four-sided solution.” As talks became more specific GVN became increasingly fearful and it was obvious that Thieu was under pressure. –”Our side-your side”formula (U.S. & GVN-NVN & NLF) confirmed NLF participation and raised BVN fears. … End of quote… At the conclusion of the Habib brief President Nixon asked what was Mr. Habib’s main concern with peace prospects? Mr. Habib identified two concerns. One, the “understanding” was the equivalent of a non-agreement. The recce missions were opposed every day (General Wheeler interrupted to say: ‘…yesterday they fired five times on our reconnaissance aircraft.’), the DMZ was full of NVA traffic, and the rockets and mortars were falling on Saigon and Danang on a regular schedule. What understanding? Two, he had no idea what the specific role of the Vietcong/NLF would be under the “our team-your team” formula . After a lengthy discussion on the strategy for proceeding with the peace negotiations, the President said: “Obviously the questions that have been circulated (NSSM-1) will provide us a factual basis for proceeding with our investigation and we need the answers soon. We want to approach this problem without inhibitions as to where we have been. I want you to think of the problem as a new one. Seek ways in which we can change the game. We must know what we want. The gain could take many turns. I visualize that it could take two years to settle this thing. Give me your ideas.”… Subsequent to the NSC meeting on the 21st, Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird hosted a luncheon on 27 January at the Pentagon attended by the President, Kissinger and General Wheeler. The discussion included a proposal by Laird to work out “a program of potential military actions which might jar the North Vietnamese into being more forthcoming at the Paris talks.” On 21 February Dr. Kissinger requested Secretary Laird to provide a progress report on the resultant ideas for jarring North Vietnam into increased interest in the peace negotiations. Secretary Laird sent several possible military actions to meet the goal in a memo to Dr. Kissinger that day. The ideas were received by Kissinger’s assistant General Al haig who added a “buck slip” to the Laird memo and the Pentagon ideas for pressuring North Vietnam. The five plans provided: (1) An actual or feigned airborne or amphibious operation against several objectives in North Vietnam: (2) An actual or feigned airborne or airmobile expedition in force against enemy LOCs in Laos and Cambodia; (3) actual or feigned renewed and expanded air and naval operations against NVN; (4) Actual or feigned subversion of the population and preparation for active resistance by the people against the North Vietnam regime; and, (5) a plan for actual or feigned technical escalation of war against the North (Nuclear)… The entire package of documents (TS/SI declas 2002) is at:

The DVD indAvengers: Endgametry has had the greatest impact on the DVD indAvengers: Endgametry, making it possible to cope with its demise with the mass popularization of online content. The rise of multimedia broadcasting has caAvengers: Endgameed the fall of many DVDrental companies such as BlockbAvengers: Endgameter.

New MCU’s Superhero (The Curse of La Llorona) Watch Online Free Video The Curse of La Llorona Full Movie, Watch The Curse of La Llorona full movie online in full HD quality anytime, anywhere only here.Yeah, I know, we’re not supposed to care that Brie Larson smiles, but I will choose to care that Larson smiles while cracking low-key jokes or otherwise wins laughs. I still maintain that a big reason why Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow became so popular is that she was both a “fierce” action hero.
So we get more outer-space adventure, more origin story material and more of what will make this 21st MCU movie different from the previous 20 MCU movies.
She is the one we did not see happen. Still, Brie Larson’s resume impresses. The actress has been playing on TV and movie sets since the age of 11. The one that some confuse with the Swedish Alicia Vikander (Tomb Raider) won an Oscar in 2016. She is the star of the very first film Marvel with a female lead. And soon, she will play a CIA agent in a series commissioned by Apple for its future platform. Series that she co-produces.
Unknown to the general public in 2016, this “girl next door” won the Academy Award for best actress for her poignant performance in “Room”, the true story of a woman sequestered with her child by a predator. She had preceded on the charts Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence, both already haloed of a statuette, but also Charlotte Rampling and Saoirse Ronan.
At the age of 26, at this Oscar night, where she appeared in a steamy blue-gauze dress, the auburn-haired actress gained access to the club of Hollywood’s hottest actresses.
With its classic and discreet beauty, this Californian from Sacramento has won the summit. She was seen in “21 Jump Street” with Channing Tatum, and in “Crazy Amy” by Judd Apatow. And against more prominent actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence, Gal Gadot or Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson signed a seven-deal deal with Marvel.
Why she ? His long history with Disney can partly explain this choice, but also the fact that it does not embody an inaccessible perfection. A majority of girls can project themselves into their character of “The Curse of La Llorona” who hears that she is not talented enough to succeed as men, before becoming the most powerful in the universe.
Rest a mystery. Brie Larson has spoken a lot as a key figure in the feminist Time’s Up movement. Strangely, as part of the promotion of “The Curse of La Llorona”, she is reluctant to address this theme, which is nevertheless central in this blockbuster.
Certainly, in the genre, the distinguished competition has already passed by with his Wonder Woman of 2017, embodied by Gal Gadot. But it would be hard to see the Amazon warrior fighting in high heels, mini-skirt, strapless bustier and resting once again on a man to complete his mission, a female character leaving the beaten track and Hollywood rebutted. Moreover the scenario of this film was the work of three men …
Nothing like it with Watch The Curse of La Llorona Online Free, signed mainly by women. And it feels. When she’s not in a full-featured combination of superhero, Carol Danvers walks Nirvana as an anti-erotic grungy as possible and proves fiercely independent. This is even the key to its power: if the super-heroine is so unique, we are told, it is thanks to her ability since childhood, despite masculine mockery, to stand up all alone. Too bad that it is not enough to make a film that stands completely … The fault of a scenario and a complicated realization flat as possible and uninspired.
No action sequence is really striking and actress Brie Larson fails to make her character endearing. Spending his time displaying a mocking pout and a mocking air, his perpetually brave attitude undermines empathy and prevents the spectator from shuddering at the dangers and vicissitudes that the heroine faces. Too bad, because the footage offers very good things in the person including a red cat and a Nick Fury young and with both eyes (the film takes place in the 1990s). In this regard, if the rejuvenation of Samuel Jackson by digital technology is impressive, the illusion is only for his face. As soon as the actor moves or starts an action sequence, the stiffness of his gestures is obvious and reminds his true age. A detail but that shows that the digital has fortunately still its limits. As for Goose, the cat, we will not say more about his role to not “reveal”.
Already the 21st film for the stable Marvel Cinema launched 10 years ago, And pending the sequel to Avengers: infinity war (Avengers: Endgame, released April 24 home), this new opus is a suitable aperitif but struggling to hold to the body and to be truly invigorating. Let’s hope that following the adventures of the most powerful hero Marvel manages to raise the level and proves more tasty.
