Is China Really Building Two Stealth Bombers?

Sebastien Roblin at Test Feed Using Fields - 17 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, Asia* [image: Wikimedia Commons] Could it be true? In January 2018, two sentences in an annual report by the DIA on Chinese military power sent a minor shockwave rippling across the defense-related internet: “The PLAAF is developing new medium- and long-range stealth bombers to strike regional and global targets. Stealth technology continues to play a key role in the development of these new bombers, which probably will reach initial operational capability no sooner than 2025.” Bombers, plural*. *In a separate chart, an un-designated next-generation... more »

The Marine Corps’ New Rifle Is Super Expensive (And No One Knows Why)

*Task and Purpose, Jared Keller* *Security, * [image: By PRT Meymaneh - 0109, CC BY 2.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9879112] Have any guesses? In their race to field a more powerful automatic rifle, the Marine Corps sidestepped the normal acquisition process and approved a contract to buy them at price tag five times that of the current M4 rifle. The $150 million deal, which may have involved a government employee who recently worked at the foreign arms maker that won the bid, is now under intense scrutiny from Congress — and raises questions about the Corps'... more »

Inspiration for Harriet Fans of Radio 4's podcast *Beyond Today *will doubtless have been delighted for BBC producer Harriet Noble.

And a gushing Harriet, who follows the Democrat congressperson on Instagram, also told us: "Because I saw that AOC uses press-on manicures I decided to give myself one too". Isn't that sweet?

Why some Canadian farmers may soon tower 'head and shoulders' above their U.S. rivals in Japan

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 18 hours ago
. This is good news for Canadian agriculture as it nicely establishes a customs union between Japan, Australia and populous Vietnam as well. In particular, we can expect to see ample initiatives among Canadian farmers to supply well established Japanese market niches. We have everything the Japanese crave in spades. Beef is an obvious item of course and someone is already starting a Wagyu herd in partnership with the Japanese. Better yet is that the agreement addresses uniform regulation as that is always a probnlem. *Why some Canadian farmers may soon tower 'head and sh... more »

For decades, she was told she was ‘just anxious.’ A midair incident uncovered the truth.

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 18 hours ago
This story needs to be told. I am experienced with seizures having dealt with a ward full of such cases as a student summer employee. What this is saying is that low level problems are going undiagnosed and that these are likely the most treatable. These seizures are brought about by minor physical injury in the brain. Minor can be almost microscopic. In the cases noted here what is lacking is the actual shaking. Yet losing consciousness is pretty indicative when nothing else can explain it. I suspect that it should be the first thing to test rather than the last. Way too... more »

The Axis of Unity’s Two Pronged Attack Upon the United States

I am recently aware that a naval task force is in position off the coast of Venezuela. This informs us that it is Chinese. This axis of unity looks good on paper and represents a serious initiative on the part of the folks from Venezuela. It is also rather conventional and long on show. The human assault on our southern border is way more problematic as it happens to be an indirect attack on Mexico. Our border will rapidly seal up and thousans of likely armed civilians or even combatants will then be loose in Mexico. The real thrust of the Chinese appears to be to shore up the... more »

*Charlie Gao* *Security, * [image: By Julian Herzog, CC BY 4.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=26893410] Given their low radar, visual, and thermal signatures, loitering munitions are very hard to track and kill.
