TASS reported in October 2018 that the 13 drones attacking the Hmeymim airbase in Syria were operated from a US Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane… This is according to Russian Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Alexander Fomin: “Thirteen drones moved according to common combat battle deployment, operated by a single crew. During all this time the American Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane patrolled the Mediterranean Sea area for eight hours. When these 13 drones faced our electronic warfare screen, they moved away to some distance, received the corresponding orders and began to be operated out of space and receiving help in finding the so-called holes through which they started penetrating. Then they were destroyed.” Then, in probably the most understated statement of history he concluded, “This should be stopped as well: in order to avoid fighting with the high-technology weapons of terrorists and highly-equipped terrorists it is necessary to stop supplying them with equipment. Manual guidance is carried out not by some villagers, but by the Poseidon-8, which has modern equipment.”
The above was an act of war if true and begging for retaliatory attacks against any of the hundreds of US bases spread around the world besides the fact that Russia is a powerful military country well able to defend itself. And Russia is not backing down, they say they have all the electronic intelligence needed to back their claim. It is worth noting that the Pentagon also had something to say, “Any suggestion that US or coalition forces played a role in an attack on a Russian base is without any basis in fact and is utterly irresponsible.” But then, who believes the Pentagon? Anyone that reads my books will know how they lie as a matter of course. There is almost nothing that they say that can be taken as truthful. Where the West reported the above it was watered down and dismissed. But then again, when it came out that the “Douma Chemical Weapon Attack” was staged as I said all along, the Western Mainstream Liars were quiet too as was the White House. Yet, more than 100 cruise missiles were launched at Syria, an act of war and idiocy I wrote about in many books and blogs. Of course, if an intelligence gathering exercise took place regarding the Hmeymim drone attack the US would have recorded and studied the Russian countermeasures, that is standard procedure. However, this was an armed attack, way past merely testing defenses. I wonder who authorizes such provocations and idiocy. I also wonder, when will America’s aggressive policies come home in a conventional war that they will lose as sure as the sun rises tomorrow.
It came out a few days ago, 9 May 2019, that the US has a secret missile for drone strikes. It is a variant of the Hellfire anti-tank missile designated the R9X, apparently. What makes it different is the lack of explosives. It kills by kinetic energy or in simple terms the sheer force of impact. It has a corona of six sword-like blades that cut through everything in its path including a car’s roof. The idea is that it is more surgical (excuse the pun, not intended) because nothing explodes and therefore no innocents die.
What every commentator misses is that this method is not new. It goes back to World War One. Closer to our time, back in the days of Rhodesia, they came up with an idea of using their English Electric Canberra bombers to drop a flechette type of cluster bomb from incredible heights. What they had was essentially thousands of sharp needle-like heavy darts falling at tremendous speeds (known as “beehives” or “canister” by some armies) and causing hell where they struck. You can hear them coming. The falling flechette darts make a sound like a swarm of honeybees and when you hear them, it is too late. They will slice you and every tree in the vicinity to pieces including normal (not armoured) vehicles. Unless you are under decent shelter (five feet of solid earth at least), you will die.
It is not against the Geneva Convention to use such weapons. Such ammunition is in use everywhere, even in shotgun shells and beehive rounds for artillery. The American Army used artillery fired flechette rounds to great effect in Vietnam and in the Civil War (both sides, as well as in Korea). Therefore, it is not a new concept at all. Like the R9X, the Rhodesian one contained no explosives, they used height to generate speed and mass, very effectively. At another occasion, they dropped small iron pellets but that was from low level, same effect.
However, the problem here is that the wrong people are attacked and that is why innocents die. A lack of intelligence combined with utter arrogance. In a recent book, Code Name Swan 53, we looked at drone operators. The vetting, to begin with, was all wrong, they would be tested on video games and shown “kill TV.” Those that asked questions were removed, those that did not, were recruited. Now you had people with borderline psychopath symptoms and no sense of military honour operating drones from their air-conditioned offices close to Las Vegas. They are paid six-figure salaries to murder women and children since they miss 96.5% of the time. Many became disillusioned quite quickly, “I was under the impression that America was saving the world, like, that we were Big Brother and we were helping everyone out...” One female whistle-blower stated bitterly, “It’s so primitive, raw, stripped-down death. This is real. It’s not a joke. You see someone die because you said it was okay to kill them. I was always shaking. Sometimes I would just go to the bathroom and just sit on the toilet. I mean just sit there in my uniform and just cry.” Eventually, she was diagnosed as suicidal. Two of her colleagues did commit suicide and others abused alcohol and hard drugs. You may be surprised but I have great sympathy with her. That is how an honourable person OUGHT to react. This is also why the US Drone Program is being moved to the CIA, away from the USAF and any type of scrutiny. Former imagery analyst, Michael Haas, “Everyone drank. There was a lot of coke, speed, and that sort of thing. If the higher-ups knew, then they didn’t say anything, but I’m pretty sure they must have known. It was everywhere.” When another reported for service at the base, Metallica heavy metal music was being played as part of the indoctrination. The welcoming speech? “Gentlemen! Welcome to Creech. While here, it will be your job to blow shit up and kill people!” Creech is the base outside Las Vegas where the drones are controlled from.
You look at such disclosures with disgust that only a professional can feel. Mickey Mouse people trying to play God. They are creating more terrorists. Some will get through, it is inevitable, and you will die or your kids will. Brought to you by Uncle Sam’s low standards. Then you will be angry with everyone including military authors like me that stood up and warned for years that you are on the wrong road, the road to defeat. And remember something else, that drone has your flag on it. What is happening is being done in your name. You are as much guilty of war crimes as would be the fellow that pulls the trigger. You will do well to read GMJ 46, VOICES - War Crimes USA, where we take a hard look at US war crimes and the reasons behind them. Your R9X is not the answer, proper intelligence is. Stop murdering innocents.
As a rule, it is never easy for an author to break through into mainstream unless there is one of the major publishing companies behind him to ensure publicity. Something which is not the case with George M James. Believe me, I am not interested in being subjected to mainstream dictations on what to write and how to write what I write.
There are no glorified scenes of sexual lust, racism or far right-wing extremism in my books. The characters are not Americans and the views are international or in other words, not the customary US leftist mainstream media lies & fake news but well researched objective truthful insights from a Protestant / Conservative view of the world.
This led to my books being soft-banned on social media and other places without any reason given. Freedom of Speech, Expression and Thought are not important to the social media giants, it seems. And so, the online bookstore was created to overcome the stranglehold placed on authors like myself and it is now open for business.
As of today, there are 45 fiction books and 3 non– fiction, both categories deal with modern military subjects of interest. For example, espionage, counter-terrorism, military history, and mainstream media lies. I expose, warn, educate and use my past experiences for the betterment of mankind.
No one reads a GMJ, be it a fictionalized novel or a non-fiction book, without learning something. These books are like no other and are often used as training material in elite units across the world. They are not for the faint of heart. Be prepared to be transported to a world that few people ever dare to acknowledge.
There are two genres: Fiction and non-fiction. The popular fiction series stars the famous spymaster Angelique, and her husband Foxtrot, and his partner Geelslang, both former South African Police and Army Special Forces legends. Although these are stories, many people whilst reading them get confused, as they have difficulty figuring out where the fiction ends and truth starts. I use the characters to illustrate how operations could take place and perhaps do and did. These fictionalized books are based upon careful study, analysis, history and at times, real missions that never made the headlines.
The 3 non-fiction books, for now, are:
1) the Intelligence Briefing – which before January 2019 was found in the front of every book. However, due to the continuous expansion of the information in the briefing, it was no longer brief, and thus I decided to make it a standalone book. However, I highly encourage anyone, who wants a different current view of today’s political/military world, to read this.
2) VOICES – War Crimes USA and 3) American Military Might – Debunked, are in depth analyses into both the titled topics.
These books are written as grave warnings that the US and NATO are heading for defeat if they continue in the trajectory that they are and have been going. These books are written in hope that this understanding will enlighten people to the worrisome reality so that it can be remedied, they are NOT meant to insult. It is the author's conviction that truth in situations, especially regarding the military, needs to be told. It is, in the end, what can save lives, and even nations.
The GMJ Books, on the GMJ store site are available in Kindle (Mobi) and ePub (Apple) formats – the ePub versions almost exclusively at my website and nowhere else except for a few spread around for obvious marketing reasons.

In 2017, all hell broke lose in the Washington Swamp when Fatou Bensouda, International Criminal Court (‘ICC’) Prosecutor, requested authorisation from Pre-Trial Chamber III to initiate an investigation into alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in relation to the armed conflict in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan since 1 May 2003, as well as regarding similar crimes that have a nexus to the armed conflict in Afghanistan and are sufficiently linked to the Situation and were committed on the territory of other States Parties to the Rome Statute since 1 July 2002 (‘Situation in Afghanistan’). That was a call for the ICC to look into US and NATO war crimes of which there are a great many and something I write about in detail in my new book, VOICES – War Crimes USA. The decision caused shock waves around the world. The “US patriots” were all shocked and infuriated that the US can be held responsible to international law and treaties. The reaction was mostly one of utter arrogance and not based on whether the crimes in fact happened or not but the idea that the “indispensable nation” can be investigated by a world body like the ICC. The counter reaction was immediate: “Today, on the eve of September 11th, I want to deliver a clear and unambiguous message on behalf of the President of the United States. The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court. We will not cooperate with the ICC. We will provide no assistance to the ICC. We will not join the ICC. We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.” So said John Bolton, US National Security Adviser for Donald Trump, the one that holds dual Israeli and US citizenship and is known as a war mongrel of great notoriety.
The Trump White House loyally backed him, threatening to “...ban ICC judges and prosecutors from entering the United States, sanction their funds in the US financial system and prosecute them in the US criminal system.” Mike Pompeo, that obese fellow that somehow believes God sent Donald J Trump to save the Jews (Israel), the worst Secretary of State behind Hilarious Clinton, went further, at a later stage, “These visa restrictions may also be used to deter ICC efforts to pursue allied personnel, including Israelis.”
If this does not set off alarms in your head, shrieking to the heavens, there is something wrong with you. Have they lost their minds? The holy separation between Church and State, gone! Respect for international institutions, gone! Accepting responsibility for your illegal and unlawful actions, gone! I wondered, and did millions of others, what do you have to hide to be that petrified to have an independent investigation? In that same year, 2018, the US Congress passed the American Service Members’ Protection Act. This is an Act that forces / obliges POTUS to “prevent any ICC prosecution of US armed forces “to the maximum extent possible.” He may even authorise military force to free any US service members from ICC custody. So the US Congress authorised a US President to launch an armed military attack to free its accused war criminals from the International Criminal Court... I will let this sink in and it is not about whether it was done or not, it shows intention and the arrogant culture of being above the law. A senior ICC Judge, Christoph Flügge, put it well, “The American threats against international judges clearly show the new political climate. It is shocking. I had never heard such a threat. We were ‘stunned’ that “the US would roll out such heavy artillery but it is consistent with the new American line: ‘We are No 1 and we stand above the law’.”
This type of arrogance is costing you lives in the War on Terror. From a counter-terrorism view, the worst thing possible besides killing civilians is to lose control of your Military Forces and allow human rights abuses to be the norm and then to deny what cannot be denied anymore. With that you lost the moral high ground. John Bolton’s remarks, as well as the rest chipping in, took away all legitimacy that the US had left and other countries took good note. Not in fear, but in utter contempt and exasperation. Deep State is destroying you. It is so obvious and yet ignored by your mainstream media, and we know why, go and look at the occult symbol code to be found in the logos, insignia and coats of arms. They serve something else than the people. And they won, in April 2019 the ICC gave up and announced that they will not continue with their investigations against US war crimes in Afghanistan and other places. The result will be that more war crimes will be committed unabated to the lasting shame of the United States, that beacon that burns no more for freedom. This was not a victory but an acknowledgment that scrutiny cannot be afforded. As the well-known UK journalist, Neil Clark stated, “Interference and attacks are now in the open. Whereas in the past they would be confined to back channels and low-key intrigue, you know, it's now the empire with its mask off.” Donald J Trump felt differently, of course, “This is a major international victory, not only for these patriots, but for the rule of law. The US holds American citizens to the highest legal and ethical standards…” Really, Mr Trump, read this book and thousands like it and tell me again about the “rule of law” that you are referring to? From what jungle does that come? Congratulations, the United States of America just became officially a rogue nation declaring itself above the laws of the civilised world. And I will say this, the crimes were committed, end of story. The fact that justice was escaped by those committing them does not take away the crime or shame. Your cover-up adds to your shame. You just handed your enemies a brilliant propaganda victory which they will thoroughly abuse for decades and you are too stupid to even realise that aspect. And what for? To cover for those weaklings that dishonoured your uniform and stated values? Time will tell if they were worth the price. (Taken from GMJ 46, VOICES – War Crimes USA, due in April / May 2019.)
