Explosions Rock Tripoli Election Commission: Who's Trying to Prevent the Vote?

It's sobering to think that everyone in those images is dead by now. I wonder what they would have said if they could have foreseen World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, and so on? Those storm clouds would not have been even a shadow on the horizon in 1911 . . .

The Shocking Reason Nazi Germany Crushed France During World War II

Daniel L. Davis at The National Interest - 13 hours ago
*Daniel L. Davis* *Security, * A history lesson. In May 1940, the German Wehrmacht launched a lightning attack into France and within weeks destroyed the combined French and British armies. The rapid defeat is typically ascribed to a combination of the French High Command’s attempts to refight the methodical battle of World War I against Germany’s adoption of new mobile, all-arms warfare. Those philosophical factors certainly played a major role in the outcome, but something much more elemental and human may have been the deciding factor: fearless, intelligent and sometimes rut... more »

The new drone is being engineered, at least in large measure, as a specific way to address this problem. If the attack distance of an F-18, which might have a combat radius of 500 miles or so, can double - then carrier-based fighters can strike targets as far as 1000 mile...more »

April was a change from the previous six months. From October to March there were an average of 8-9 incidents per day. In April that dropped to just 6.8. That marked a new all-ti... more »

mkahn at Lawfare - 16 hours ago
An important tool for cybersecurity researchers and law enforcement may be the first victim of Europe’s new privacy law. On April 11, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) made an unsurprising announcement signaling jeopardy for the “WHOIS” database, its decades-old system for keeping public records of who controls the hundreds of millions of internet domain names. After the EU said the system was illegal under the General Data Protection Regulation, which comes into force on May 25, ICANN announced that unless it is given more time to develop an alternat... more »

A person motivated in this way is unlikely to view her own particular spouse or child as simply the object of universalizable ethical obligations. Parental educati...more »

No, you probably cannot. This is still an unintended consequence of bad government policy. The whole global warming meme has always been bad policy and good policy would engage the population in forest remediation whose unintended consequence would be carbon sequestration. The nonsense below completely forgets that for every ton of extracted fuel there is another ton of root ball and branch waste that actually goes back into the atmosphere. At best you quickly reforest and offset that particular loss in a couple of decades. For some reason the price points worked to use wood ... more »

Vaz Case Referred Back to Police per Guido Fawkes

Not a sheep at Not a sheep - 21 hours ago
Guido Fawkes reports https://order-order.com/2018/05/01/vaz-case-referred-back-police/ that Keith Vaz case has been referred back to the police. Three things, first have the BBC reported this news? Second, how much coverage would the BBC afford such a story had it been a Conservative MP rather than a Labour one? Third, does anyone seriously think that the BBC will refer this case to the CPP, and if they do that the CPP will take any action? I can almost hear the phrase 'not in the public interest'.

Desperate MSM Smears Won’t Stop Syria’s Effective Alt-Media Activists

Andrew KORYBKO at OrientalReview.org - 22 hours ago
Western governments are known to deploy so-called “sock puppets” and “bots” in waging information warfare, and it’s no secret that they coordinate campaigns with their Mainstream Media partners, which makes it all the more shameless for them to accuse their opponents of doing the same thing that they do out of the desperation that only such a stinging narrative defeat can bring.
