U.S. Rallies Behind Charlottesville


Read the original post: U.S. Rallies Behind Charlottesville

A Far-Right Gathering Bursts Into Brawls

A reporter working for The New York Times in Charlottesville, Va., recounts what he saw on Saturday.Charlottesville is the place where Thomas Jefferson and James Madison talked about freedom of speech. But this was a day of shouting, not listening.Assigned to cover the “Unite the Right” rally of white nationalists, I stood in Emancipation Park at 9:15 a.m. Saturday and looked out at the gathering in front of me.Initially, the mood was calm. Cornel West, the Harvard scholar, was linked arm in arm with about 20 clergy members, who had walked to the park from a sunrise service at a largely African-American church to counterprotest the demonstration by neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Tom Perriello, a former congressman and a hopeful for governor, was there to oppose the rally, too.Continue reading the main storyBut then brawls broke out. Protesters began to mace one another, throwing water bottles and urine-filled balloons — some of which hit reporters — and beating each other with flagpoles, clubs and makeshift weapons […]

Here’s the sign-up.)Today’s introduction comes from Thomas Fuller, the San Francisco bureau chief.Is California’s homeless crisis much worse than the official data show?A study released last week makes the case that the federal government undercounts homelessness in California’s largest cities by more than 25 percent.Using the estimates in the study, Los Angeles has 60,000 homeless, not 47,000, and San Francisco has 9,000 homeless, not 7,000, according to the research, which used 2016 data.Continue reading the main storyThe study is important, experts say, because it could provide justification for greater federal funding for programs that address homelessness.Continue reading the main storyContinue reading the main storyThe federal government measures homelessness by commissioning teams that spread out through cities, counting the homeless at a particular point in time, often in a single night.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyCalifornia TodayThe news and stories that matter to Californians (and anyone else interested in the state).

U.S. Troops Train in Eastern Europe to Echoes of the Cold War

With that in mind, top American planners and intelligence officials are closely watching Russian operations in Crimea, eastern Ukraine, and Syria, all proving grounds for new Russian tactics and weaponry. Young American Army officers are once again using flash cards — or the digital equivalent — to study the structure and abilities of Russian Army units, just as American officers did with earlier generations of Russian forces and weaponry in the 1970s and 1980s.Continue reading the main storyThe Army’s training centers in California, Louisiana and Germany are now including more scenarios that replicate Russian forces, even if scenario planners there, and here, are careful to give the opposing forces fictitious names to avoid ruffling diplomatic feathers even more between Washington and Moscow.The United States Army’s presence in Europe is a far cry from the height of the Cold War, 30,000 soldiers now compared with 300,000 then, General Hodges said. For that reason, the general is putting heavy emphasis on the “speed of assembly” — how quickly troops and their equipment can move hundreds of miles and be prepared to fight at a moment’s notice.The $40 million exercise here, called Saber Guardian, the largest in Europe this year, included driving more than 1,000 troops and hundreds of vehicles about 1,200 miles across Europe, the equivalent of going from St. Louis to Miami. Hundreds of allied troops — including American soldiers with faces painted in green and black camouflage — and their 60-ton tanks crossed the Danube River on temporary bridges, fending off mock attacks on the other side.Continue reading the main story […]
