“The whole Middle East is so loaded that things go wrong if any one party goes off and does something the other does not like,” said one expert.But for now, the prognosis is good. “There are always going to be differences, even among best friends, but we are in sync,” he said, adding wryly: “The day that the EU and the US absolutely agree on every issue, please call me.” Their counterparts in Cyprus sing the same song.“We are cooperating very well. Everybody is sharing – it is unbelievable. When something really starts happening, ask me again, but for now we are best buddies,” said one.But things are not as rosy when it comes to NATO, a breeding ground for EU-US disputes over recent months.The gravest of these has been, and continues to be, the fight for command of NATO activities in the Mediterranean. Paris wants the post of commander-in-chief southern Europe to go to a European. But with theUS sixth fleet sailing those waters, Washington is adamant that it should go to an American.Paris pinned its re-entry into NATO’s integrated military structure on winning that fight and even Pamela Harriman, the late US ambassador to France whose relations with French President Jacques Chirac and his government were warm and cordial, could not smooth over this problem.Another potential fly in the ointment is the growing relationship between the Union and Asia. Paris and other EU capitals have made much play of their closer ties with the region this year, prompting speculation that such bragging could irritate Washington. But US officials say that here, too, there are positive feelings about European policy.They are pleased that the Union has joined the US-Japan energy programme on the Korean peninsula (KEDO), and they are working well with their EU partners in the Asian Regional Forum – that continent’s equivalent of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).Its attempts in recent months to draw a link between trade and labour standards have set the US administration at loggerheads with some EU member states, but others agree with Washington that the two should be considered together.China will always be a big test for western governments, but most Union countries and the US have agreed to pressure Beijing on its human rights record, and American officials say they are pleased to see that “the EU is starting to broaden its scope in Asia to give more importance to political issues”, rather than just commercial ones.“Europe wants to be an Asian player and US policy is to encourage joint action with the Europeans in all areas,” said one official. “We do not want to get into a situation in which commercial rivalry between the Union and the US allows Asians to play us off against each other.”Perhaps the area with the biggest potential for EU-US rivalry is the Middle East. But Union envoy Miguel Moratinos and his US counterpart Dennis Ross have worked so well together lately that officials describe the policies they are pursuing as “real synergy”.If the peace process survives, and Syria and Lebanon start to take part in earnest, the potential for transatlantic division will grow. France’s solo diplomacy in Beirut often irritates Americans. In fact, apart from spats over NATO commands, things have never looked so good, with policy experts citing a catalogue of examples of EU-US cooperation.In the former Yugoslavia, where the two have been accused of causing the war to drag on as Serbs and Bosnians played the allies off against each other, governments on both sides of the Atlantic are working in sync.“We are extremely close, almost identical on the major principles regarding Serbia, Bosnia and Kosovo,” said an American diplomat. “There are differences, but they are nuances, such as timing, the balance between carrots and sticks, which carrots should be linked to which moves, and where decisions should be taken or announced.”There is a real risk of a dispute in the summer of 1998, when the SFOR (international peace implementation force) mandate runs out. But for the next 12 months, while there will be continual debate on small points, officials say they foresee no substantive clashes.

This past weekend, something incredible happened. Phish played their first destination festival in Riviera Maya, Mexico for three nights of straight tropical thunder. The community is still buzzing with the after-effects in what was undoubtedly their best Phish experience to date.In attempt to share the un-shareable moments with those who did not make it, and from a perspective unbeknownst to humans, one particular rebelde launched a drone over the dancing fans presumably during Sunday’s show when they played ‘Yarmouth Road’.Phish Debuts Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Ocean’ During Jam-Fueled Mexico Finale [Recap]The YouTube poster apparently “knows a guy who knows a drone guy” that “shot this phish video before getting his ass kicked out only to paddle board right back in…because its phish, and musics more important than money or laws. remember footloose?! CHA”.To the drone guy, you are our hero. Watch the marvelous spectacle below:[H/T JamBase]
Two creative forces in the bass guitar community, MonoNeon and Flea, joined forces on Tuesday for some low-end jamming. A pair of short clips of their meetup were shared on Tuesday in a post on MonoNeon’s social media.The clips see MonoNeon (Prince, Ghost-Note) in his trademark colorful attire seated beside the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist, who also did his best to dress the part for the occasions with a tie-dye sweatpants/sweatshirt combination. The melodic snippets themselves are relatively tame when you consider the prodigious chops of both players, but they’re enough to pique fans’ excitement about what the rest of this jam session—and any potential future collaborations—might sound like.Related: How MonoNeon Ended Up On Mac Miller’s Posthumous Album, ‘Circles’While we don’t know what may come of the MonoNeon x Flea connection, it’s clear the two musicians share a mutual respect. As Flea noted along with a slew of emojis in the post’s comment section, “So glad to connect Mono, you radiate all the good stuff.”Watch the clips below: MonoNeon started the new year with the release of his latest experimental funk album, Banana Peel on Capitol Hill, back on January 4th.

The 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) and the history of the United States Army Special Forces are intertwined, since the group is the oldest Special Forces Group in the Army.The establishment of the Group on June 19, 1952, was also the establishment of Special Forces. The history of the group begins with the formation of the Office of Strategic Services under the command of Brig. Gen. William O. “Wild Bill” Donovan in 1942. Its missions took the unit behind enemy lines in every theater of operations during World War II. Americans, British, French, Belgians, Dutch, South Africans, New Zealanders and Canadians all filled the ranks of the OSS. In France, small elements called “Jedburgh teams” were employed to assist the allied landings and subsequent breakouts at both Normandy and Provence.The official lineage and colors of the group go back to the 1st Special Service Force, a joint U.S.-Canadian Army force established in 1942, at Fort William Henry Harrison in Helena, Mont., for the conduct of winter commando-type operations in Europe.The 10th SFG(A) is assigned to the U.S. Army’s Special Forces Command in Fort Bragg, N.C., but headquartered at Fort Carson. The approximate 2,000 Soldiers assigned to the 10th SFG(A) train for and conduct combat, unconventional warfare, special reconnaissance and foreign internal defense missions.The 10th SFG(A) consists of the Group Headquarters, the Group Support Battalion and four combat battalions; three are based at Fort Carson and one battalion is forward deployed to Panzer Kaserne in Stuttgart, Germany.

by Jeb Spaulding, Vermont Secretary of Administration Recently, Paul Cillo, the founder of Vermont’s left-leaning Public Assets Institute, penned an Op-Ed claiming that the Shumlin Administration isn’t spending enough to serve Vermonters and calling for taxes to be raised to match the increased level of services Cillo believes are warranted. Shortly afterwards, Tom Pelham, co-founder of the decidedly more conservative Campaign for Vermont, published an Op-Ed describing Vermont’s spending as a ‘pending fiscal ship wreck,’ and calling for significant reductions in current state spending. In the face of critics from opposite poles of the same budgetary debate, what is an Administration to do?Exactly what we have been doing: maintaining our focus on creating jobs and meeting the critical needs of Vermonters, while carefully protecting the public purse.The Shumlin Administration has made tough and responsible budget choices, even while it has met considerable challenges, such as the damage from Tropical Storm Irene, a slow economic recovery, the end of federal stimulus dollars from the Great Recession, and continued dysfunction in Washington, DC. Administration leaders are being asked by Governor Shumlin to work across agencies to make state government work better by increasing efficiency and reducing waste. All the while, Governor Shumlin has fought off legislative efforts to raise taxes for General Fund spending.Though the Shumlin Administration is meeting the challenges of today while planning for the future, some of our critics seem stuck in the past. As someone who has worked with both Paul Cillo and Tom Pelham over many years and across many roles, I respect their right to advocate for their own views of our state’s budget. But as a state official who must actually deal with the practical art of governing, I am not as free as a clever advocate to paint the state’s budget situation in stark monochrome.Pelham’s prescription for our claimed woes boils down to the familiar remedies he has promoted for years: cutting government services, shifting responsibilities to others, and coming up with gimmicks that sound promising but usually don’t work. He claims our financial practices have put Vermont’s bond rating at risk by citing a report from Standard & Poor’s that actually improved the outlook on the state’s rating.Tellingly, in recent days, Moody’s Investors Services reaffirmed Vermont’s best in New England Triple A rating, explaining, ‘Moody’s highest rating level reflects Vermont’s strong history of financial management, which includes conservative fiscal policies and the maintenance of healthy reserve balances that continue to provide a cushion against any unexpended revenue declines; and manageable debt profile that reflects the State’s focused efforts to reduce its debt ratios and maintain well-funded pension systems.’Nowhere is Vermont’s solid progress clearer than in our path out of the Great Recession, where Vermont’s economy ‘has recovered more quickly than the rest of New England, and much faster than many other parts of the country,’ according to Federal Reserve Bank of Boston CEO Eric Rosengren when he spoke in Burlington earlier this month. And our recovery shows in the numbers: Vermont remains one of the lowest unemployment rate states in the country, currently tied for fifth.Pelham performs historical sleights of hand in his review of government spending in Vermont. He begins his analysis with 2008, when the economy began the most significant decline since the Great Depression. Only he could be surprised that spending by government, much of it in the form of federal stimulus money, would ‘ and should ‘ increase as unemployment rose, incomes stagnated, and home values falteredPelham correctly expresses concern about the long-standing challenges of funding Vermont’s pension systems, a problem stretching back over many administrations, but then fails to mention the name of the person who routinely made the trip from a former Administration’s offices in the Pavilion building to the Statehouse to convince lawmakers that we should not fully fund the actuarial recommendation for the pension funds: Tom Pelham. When he left his position as Commissioner of Finance, Vermont was not the Triple A rated state it is now, and it couldn’t possibly have become one with that kind of budgetary practice. The truth is that Vermont was ahead of the curve in enacting changes, like increasing the normal retirement age, increasing employee contributions, and linking retiree health coverage to length of employment, to make our public pension plans sustainable. Further, we now routinely fully fund the annual pension actuarial recommendation.Meanwhile, in stark contrast to Tom Pelham, Paul Cillo reaches back more than 20 years and cherry picks one quote to fault the Shumlin Administration for not emulating Governor Richard Snelling, characterized by Cillo as a leader who felt comfortable raising taxes in order to support increases in state services and programs. It is important to note that Governor Snelling inherited a budget gap several times larger than the funding gap currently anticipated for the next fiscal year. I doubt very much Governor Snelling would endorse Cillo’s whitewash portrait of the extremely difficult choices his Administration made during that crisis. A more accurate view of Snelling’s budgetary philosophy, one shared by Governor Shumlin, is reflected in his January 1991 budget speech to the Legislature, when he said ‘our citizens expect their government to balance the need for services and the burden of taxes. They will not tolerate excessive taxes any more than they will accept neglect of social interests.’ The former Governor continued, ‘Consequently, Vermont does not and never has had the option of simply deciding which government programs or services it wants and then levying taxes at whatever levels might be required.’Cillo believes that the Shumlin Administration has failed to focus support on Vermont’s most needy, ignoring the facts in the process: increased state spending for low income housing and homelessness; the first base-budgeted contribution to low income heating assistance in state history; becoming the first state in the country to extend free school lunch to all low income public school children; an increase in the coverage limits for Medicaid; and increased subsidies for childcare. No one could take a clear-eyed look at the facts and claim that Governor Shumlin does not value and support the state’s anti-poverty programs.Finally, claims from both Cillo and Pelham that we are spending state dollars on public assistance programs without concern for results ring false. Following the Governor’s lead on a statewide strategic plan, Secretary Doug Racine and his team at the Agency of Human Services have aggressively rebuilt its capacity to measure and report results, something that was done for years but abandoned during the last decade. The Agency has identified 21 outcomes for the wellbeing of Vermonters. Contracts with our community partners now require these measures of performance, so that we can see whether we are getting desired results for the money we are spending. Soon, an e-scorecard will allow Vermonters to see how the Agency is doing on its performance measures. In addition, Governor Shumlin has launched both an e-dashboard (http://governor.vermont.gov/govdash(link is external)) to track a host of social, economic, and environmental indicators and a financial transparency website (http://spotlight.vermont.gov/(link is external)) which allows citizens to see ‘Where the Money Comes From’ that is used to operate state government and ‘Where the Money Goes’ when it is spent. Greater accountability, more effective programs and better results for Vermonters will result.While our critics continue to replay the last 20 years of tired legislative fights, the Shumlin Administration will stay focused on the future by focusing on creating good paying jobs and prudent management of the state’s finances. This budget year and those beyond will undoubtedly bring new challenges. Vermonters expect state government to act responsibly and to meet critical needs within the means we have, and they deserve nothing less.October 29, 2013‘
