At about 5:00 PM eastern US time today, there were about forty-eight (48) F-16 fighter jets, over various parts of Belgium! The jets were accompanied by literally dozens of military helicopters, from troop transports, to attack gunships.
Top put this in perspective, the entire country of Belgium is about 11,000 square miles, slightly larger than the US state of Massachusetts, which is 10,000 sq. mi.
Here's a map to see for yourself how small that country is:
NEVER BEFORE have so many military aircraft flown over Belgium in peacetime.
None of us here at HTRS were sure as to why such a massive amount of air power was in the air today, but it seemed to us that, something must be up.
I reached out to my former colleagues within the Intelligence Community (IC) and what they told me shook me to my core.

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.
