Trump’s Transgender Military Ban Is Stressing Out Deployed Soldiers (HBO)

The Trump Administration’s newly-released guidelines on banning transgender people from serving in the military may not be in effect yet — but some transgender troops currently serving say the policy is already taking its toll on their community.
Blake Dremann​, an active duty Navy Lieutenant Commander who also leads an association of LGBT service members called SPARTA, told VICE News he’s already heard from other transgender military personnel who’ve been discriminated against.

“My superiors have been very supportive. But we have had service members who have experienced discrimination — typically along the lines of, they don’t agree that we’re able to serve. They don’t like the policy and they refuse to follow the regulations,” Dremann​ said.

The Trump Administration’s ban, which President Trump announced via tweet last summer, has yet to take effect because it’s been blocked in the courts, after a handful of LGBTQ rights organizations challenged the proposal last year.

But the Administration is still moving forward with crafting guidelines and policy around the ban, and on Friday the White House released a new, more specific memo endorsing a handful of recommendations from a Department of Defense panel convened to study the issue. The panel recommended — and Defense Secretary James Mattis signed on to — banning individuals who’ve undergone gender confirmation surgery in the past, or plan to in the future, from enlisting.

Dremann​ said he fielded texts all weekend from transgender people currently serving in the military, confused about what the new policy means for them.

“We’re expected to be tough-minded,” Dremann​ told VICE News. “And while it is going to add stress to their deployment, the expectation is that they will be able to deal with that.”

How The U.S. Is Helping Saudi Arabia Fight A Controversial War In Yemen

The Senate rejected a resolution Tuesday seeking to end U.S. involvement in Yemen’s spiraling civil war, which has killed thousands of civilians and thrown the country into the “world’s worst humanitarian crisis,” according to the United Nations.

In a closer-than-expected result, lawmakers voted 55-44 against curbing U.S. military activity in Yemen, narrowly defeating the bipartisan legislation put forward by Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Chris Murphy of Connecticut, and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. But human rights advocates were heartened by what they believe is a growing opposition to America’s unconditional support for Saudi Arabia’s controversial campaign in Yemen.

“Today should have been the day that the Senate moved to end U.S. involvement in this catastrophe.” said Scott Paul, Oxfam America’s policy lead for Yemen. “But it is clear from today’s debate that the tide is turning,”

Paul was likely referring to the timing of the vote, which, despite urgent requests from the White House and the Pentagon, took place just as Saudi Arabia’s powerful Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman visited with President Donald Trump at the White House. Trump praised the young leader as a “very great friend” to America; hours later the Senate debated the bill.

Congressional leaders sought to use the Crown Prince’s much-touted visit to press the White House and its powerful Middle East ally to end the brutal war in Yemen, along with the U.S. military’s involvement in it. They did so while facing opposition from the executive branch and the military. Ahead of the visit, Secretary of Defense James Mattis penned a personal letter to U.S. senators, urging them to halt the vote, and warning that such an effort risked straining relations and compromising American interests in the region.

But there’s a reason the senators pressed forward with the vote. Bin Salman may be touted as Saudi Arabia’s young modernizing reformer, but he is also widely considered the architect of the Saudi-led air campaign in Yemen, which has had disastrous results for the country and its civilians.

We Follow A New Generation Of Soldiers Headed To Afghanistan (HBO)

Yesterday afternoon, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson went to Capitol Hill to ask for an extension of the Authorization for Use of Military Force, the law that allows the U.S. to continue to wage wars against those responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Meanwhile, more than 4,000 US troops will be deploying to Afghanistan this Fall, as the conflict enters its 17th year. The US already has around 8,500 troops on the ground in the region, but this new effort is a bid to boost a combat force tasked with destroying the Taliban.

And so, 16 years after the beginning of the Afghan conflict, VICE News joined the 3rd Infantry Division of Fort Stewart, Georgia, as a new generation of soldiers marches off to war.

More Boots on the Ground: US to send more troops to Afghanistan ‘to fight more effectively’

More US troops will be heading to Afghanistan. Pentagon chief James Mattis has now signed an order to dispatch additional forces. Trump provided no deadline for an end to the war.
The number of additional troops to be sent to the country is being kept under wraps.
In addition, the president wants the NATO allies to throw more soldiers and money into the fight. Trump’s Afghan strategy shake-up is raising fears of even more civilian casualties.
Robert Naiman of the Just Foreign Policy think tank says the new strategy will likely lead to more civilian deaths.

‘Both PKK & YPG are terrorist organisations’ – Turkey angered by Pentagon’s decision to arm Kurds

Turkey has reacted with anger to the Pentagon’s latest decision to supply new weapons to Kurdish forces – who Ankara view as terrorists.

The Turkish President has vowed to take up the issue with Donald Trump when they meet next week.
Washington’s latest moves seems to have further strained an already fragile relationship with Ankara.

Coming just two weeks after the U.S. condemned Turkish airstrikes that killed Kurdish fighters in Syria and Iraq.

But U.S. Defence Secretary, James Mattis, says America still wants co-operation on all fronts.

And just today, a Kurdish militia – known as the YPG – released a response to the U.S. deployment.

They called it a demonstration of confidence, saying it’s – quote – a historic decision that will yield important results.

We heard from a Middle-East expert who says the U.S. has more interests in the region than just fighting ISIL.
