Long-Awaited Display of Restored Memphis Belle Set For 2018

This NEWS was originally shared on Aulanews United States News

https://gdb.voanews.com/2FF6BE54-9A3E-4872-9402-771694ACD948_cx0_cy12_cw0_w800_h450.jpg

The fabled World War II bomber Memphis Belle will finally go on public display next spring at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force alongside John F. Kennedy’s presidential plane, an early Wright Brothers flyer and other national treasures.

The journey from the flak-ridden skies over occupied France and Germany to restoration and display in the Ohio museum has been long for one of the most celebrated American planes to survive the war.

The B-17F “Flying Fortress,” feted as one of the first to make it through the required 25 bombing missions, arrived at the museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in pieces a dozen years ago. It was in rough shape, having been on display outside for decades in its namesake city where it deteriorated from weather and vandalism.

Restoration work by an army of volunteers has continued for years, delayed by a major expansion at the sprawling museum near Dayton and other restoration projects vying for attention. An unveiling of the restored warbird now is scheduled for May 17, 2018 — the 75th anniversary of the crew’s 25th and final mission. The Memphis Belle will be displayed as the centerpiece of an exhibit on the strategic bombing campaign that broke the back of Germany’s wartime production.

“This is an American icon,” said Jeff Duford, curator of the Memphis Belle exhibit. “It’s like the flag that flew at Iwo Jima or the USS Arizona. This is one of those things that’s truly legendary and represents America and our spirit.”

Since B-17 parts are no longer manufactured, volunteers have worked long, painstaking hours fabricating them from scratch and reassembling the plane inside a cavernous restoration hangar at the museum. The wing tips just went on, but the fuselage skin is still being riveted on. And it’s still missing the plastic nose cone, tail section and an authentic paint job.

Greg Hassler, who is supervising the restoration, knows the clock is now ticking.

“We will have it done,” Hassler vowed. “The airplane will look like it did on its 25th mission on 17 May of next year.”

The four-engine bomber bristling with .50-caliber machine guns was piloted by then-Lt. Robert Morgan and had its famous name before it left the U.S. mainland. Morgan, who died in 2004, said it was inspired by his sweetheart, 19-year-old Memphis resident Margaret Polk. The actual moniker came from a riverboat in a John Wayne movie called “Lady for a Night” that Morgan and his co-pilot saw the night before the crew voted on a name.

Before heading for Europe, Morgan flew the bomber to Memphis, where Polk christened it with a bottle of champagne amid much fanfare.

The Memphis Belle, with the leggy Esquire magazine pinup girl painted on the nose, survived six months of punishing air combat in 1942-43 during missions to bomb factories and submarine pens. In doing so, the airplane and its crew beat the odds in a big way. Two out of three young men — their average age was 20 — who flew on those B-17 missions from airfields in England did not survive the war. One out of every 18 planes was lost to combat.

Because the plane’s crew members sometimes flew in other planes, they actually completed their requisite 25th mission two days before the Belle, which flew its 25th on May 19, 1943, making it one of the first B-17s to do so.

After being honored by the Army brass and the king and queen of England, most of the original crew and plane were reunited for a highly publicized tour of the U.S. to help sell war bonds in the summer of 1943, including a stop at the same Ohio Air Force base where it will now reside permanently.

A 1944 William Wyler documentary added to the lore of the Belle, while younger generations were introduced to it in a 1990 hit movie that was a fictionalized account of the final mission.

Despite the Memphis Belle’s installation at the Air Force museum, the legislature in Tennessee earlier this year designated it as that state’s official airplane.

US Splits With G-7 Counterparts on Climate Change

In an unprecedented move, a Group of Seven summit communique has carved out a unique place for the United States to break with its counterparts on a major issue.

In a pared-down final communique, all G-7 nations, except the United States, pledged action to mitigate climate change.

“The United States of America is in the process of reviewing its policies on climate change and on the Paris Agreement and thus is not in a position to join the consensus on these topics,” the communique read. “Understanding this process, the heads of state and of government of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom and the presidents of the European Council and of the European Commission reaffirm their strong commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Agreement.”

The United States, according to the document, needs “more time” to decide whether it will exit the landmark deal to reduce carbon emissions agreed upon by representatives of 195 countries two years ago.

“I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!,” U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted from Sicily on his personal account near the conclusion of a G-7 working lunch.

“I told Donald Trump that it was crucial that the United States remained fully engaged in the Paris climate change deal,” French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the climate agreement is so important there should not be any compromises on it.

“The entire discussion about climate was very difficult, if not to say very dissatisfying,” the German leader told reporters. “There are no indications whether the United States will stay in the Paris Agreement or not.”

“There was a very frank exchange of views” on the topic, acknowledged President Trump’s top economic adviser, Gary Cohn.

Conservation groups criticize delay

Environmental groups immediately expressed disappointment with the American stance.

“Europe, Canada and Japan stood up today and made a stand, revealing again how far Trump is out of step with the rest of the world on climate change,” Greenpeace International Executive Director Jennifer Morgan said, adding it was up to the other leaders to ensure that the larger G-20 bloc signals even greater ambition for the transformation to clean energy.

“President Trump should now return to Washington and make the right decision, take climate change seriously and take action with the rest of the world,” said Morgan in a statement sent to VOA News.

Protectionism condemned

Trump did accede on language on trade in the communique, agreeing to fight protectionism despite his oft-repeated “America first” stance on commerce.

“We do to you what you do to us,” was what Trump communicated to his G-7 partners on trade policy, Cohn told reporters.

In remarks to U.S. service personnel at Naval Air Station Sigonella the president did not mention any of the disagreements with the six other countries, saying the summit was “a tremendously productive meeting” and “we made a lot of good friends this week.”

In another break with tradition, the U.S. president did not hold a news conference following the conclusion of the G-7 summit – the only leader present who did not speak with reporters.

Cohn and the president’s national security advisor, General H.R. McMaster, instead, briefed a group of traveling White House reporters but television cameras were not permitted to show their remarks.

Trump’s first foreign trip as U.S. president was a hectic nine-day jaunt that took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy and Belgium, concluding with a second Italian stop for the G-7 on the largest Mediterranean island, Sicily.

Migrants a topic on final day of summit

On the second and final day of the G-7 summit, the host country, Italy, wanted to draw attention to the migration crisis and the dangerous Mediterranean crossings taken by tens of thousands of people looking for a better life in Europe.

Leaders from Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Nigeria and Tunisia were involved in Saturday’s talks, as those are the main countries of origin for migrants trying to reach Europe.

The Oxfam charity consortium accused the Trump administration of blocking any agreement on human mobility.

“As the leaders fly home from Taormina they will look down on the waters that have claimed thousands of lives on the G-7’s watch,” said the British-based international confederation of 20 non-governmental organizations.

Along with the United States, the other members of the G-7 are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Britain. The EU is also represented.

The Africa-focused anti-poverty group One says the communique sets a “new low” for the G-7 in a year of “greatly diminished expectations.”

“The early promise of this summit was crushed by the Trump administration’s hostile negotiating posture and the evident lack of ambition of other leaders,” said the international advocacy group’s statement.

North Korea discussed

At the start of a one-hour discussion on Friday between Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the U.S. president said the G-7 summit would have a particular focus on the North Korea problem.

The leaders subsequently reaffirmed their commitment “to cooperate to the fullest extent possible to counter terrorist threats” and agreed to “enhance sanctions on North Korea” in an attempt to deter the development of Pyongyang’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs,” according to a White House statement.

The U.S. Navy has dispatched a third strike force group led by a nuclear-powered USS aircraft carrier to the western Pacific.

The USS Nimitz will join the USS Carl Vinson and the USS Ronald Reagan, VOA News has learned. It is unusual in peacetime for the navy to deploy three aircraft carriers in the same region.

Man Shouting Racial, Anti-Muslim Slurs Kills 2 Who Tried to Stop Him

Two people died Friday and another was hurt in a stabbing on a Portland light-rail train after a man yelled racial slurs at two young women who appeared to be Muslim, one of whom was wearing a hijab, police said.

Officers arrested a man Friday afternoon who ran from the train, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. Police were still working Friday night to identify the man and the people who were attacked.

Hate speech, vicious attack

Before the stabbing, the assailant on the train was ranting on many topics, using “hate speech or biased language,” and then turned his focus on the women, police Sgt. Pete Simpson said.

“In the midst of his ranting and raving, some people approached him and appeared to try to intervene with his behavior and some of the people that he was yelling at,” Simpson told The Oregonian. “They were attacked viciously.”

One person was dead at the scene and another died at a hospital, Simpson said. The third person was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Motive is unclear

It wasn’t clear why the man was yelling, Simpson said.

“He was talking about a lot of different things, not just specifically anti-Muslim,” Simpson said.

Police don’t know if the man has mental health issues or if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

The attack happened on a MAX train as it headed east. A train remained stopped on the tracks at a transit center, which was closed while police investigated.

Simpson said the women understandably left the scene before police were able to talk with them but police would like to hear from them to help fill in what happened.

“It’s horrific,” Simpson said. “There’s no other word to describe what happened today.”

Millions of Muslims marked the start of Ramadan Friday, a time of intense prayer, dawn-to-dusk fasting and nightly feasts.

Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Adviser to President Carter, Dies

This NEWS was originally shared on Aulanews United States News

Zbigniew Brzezinski, who helped topple economic barriers between the Soviet Union, China and the West as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, died Friday. He was 89.

His death was announced on social media Friday night by his daughter, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski. She called him “the most inspiring, loving and devoted father any girl could ever have.”

Earnest and ambitious, Brzezinski helped Carter bridge wide gaps between the rigid Egyptian and Israeli leaders, Anwar Sadat and Menachem Begin, leading to the Camp David accords in September 1978. Three months later, U.S.-China relations were normalized, a top priority for Brzezinski.

Expert in Communism

Born in Warsaw and educated in Canada and the United States, Brzezinski was an acknowledged expert in Communism when he attracted the attention of U.S. policymakers. In the 1960s he was an adviser to John F. Kennedy and served in the Johnson administration.

In December 1976, Carter offered Brzezinski the position of national security adviser. He had not wanted to be secretary of state because he felt he could be more effective working at Carter’s side in the White House.

Brzezinski often found himself in clashes with colleagues like Secretary of State Cyrus Vance. For the White House, the differences between Vance and Brzezinski became a major headache, confusing the American public about the administration’s policy course and fueling a decline in confidence that Carter could keep his foreign policy team working in tandem.

Iran hostage crisis

The Iranian hostage crisis, which began in 1979, came to dramatize America’s waning global power and influence and to symbolize the failures and frustrations of the Carter administration. Brzezinski, during the early months of 1980, became convinced that negotiations to free the kidnapped Americans were going nowhere. Supported by the Pentagon, he began to push for military action.

Carter was desperate to end the standoff and, over Vance’s objections, agreed to a long-shot plan to rescue the hostages. The mission, dubbed Desert One, was a complete military and political humiliation and precipitated Vance’s resignation. Carter lost his re-election bid against Ronald Reagan that November.

Brzezinski went on to ruffle the feathers of Washington’s power elite with his 1983 book, “Power and Principle,” which was hailed and reviled as a kiss-and-tell memoir.

“I have never believed in flattery or lying as a way of making it,” he told The Washington Post that year. “I have made it on my own terms.”

Son of a diplomat

The oldest son of Polish diplomat Tadeus Brzezinski, Zbigniew was born on March 28, 1928, and attended Catholic schools during the time his father was posted in France and Germany.

The family went to Montreal in 1938 when the elder Brzezinski was appointed Polish consul general. When Communists took power in Poland six years later, he retired and moved his family to a farm in the Canadian countryside.

At his new home, the young Brzezinski began learning Russian from a nearby farmer and was soon bitten by the foreign policy bug.

Brzezinski’s climb to the top of the foreign policy community began at Canada’s McGill University, where he earned degrees in economics and political science. Later at Harvard, he received a doctorate in government, a fellowship and a publishing contract, for his thesis on Soviet purges as a permanent feature of totalitarianism.

Frequent trips to Eastern Europe and several books and articles in the 1950s established Brzezinski as an expert on Communism, and by the 1960s he’d begun to attract the interest of policymakers. Throughout his career, he would be affiliated with moderate-to-liberal groups, including the Rand Corp., the Council on Foreign Relations, Amnesty International and the NAACP.
