Will Iran start a general war in the Middle East?

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 17 hours ago
Strategy Page reports that Iran's Revolutionary Guard, which is being hammered by Israel in Syria, is now threatening to unleash terrorist movements Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel. Iranian allies Hezbollah and Hamas are both threatening “war with Israel.” Such threats are not made without Iranian permission. That has long been the main Israeli fear, that Iran would support a simultaneous attack by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza. Israel believed Iran would wait until it had built a significant force of fighters and rockets in Syria before trying such an attack. ... more »

Showdown: Meet the 5 Deadliest 9mm Guns and Hunting Rifles Ever

Kyle Mizokami at Test Feed Using Fields - 17 hours ago
*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, * Let the debate begin. *In the 1980s the Model 700 adapted into the U.S. army’s M-24 Sniper Weapon System, and in 2010 the army began upgrading those rifles to the new M2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle standard. The conversion involved converting a .308 long action rifle to .300 Winchester Magnum, and the fact that the army saw no issues with converting a used .308 action to the more powerful .300 WM is a testimony to the strength of the 700’s receiver.* *(Due to reader interest we have combined these two posting into one for your reading pleasure.)* *5 B... more »

Somebody needs to call Robert S. Mueller III. During the Obama years, there was a number you could call at the White House and denounce people. It was admittedly easier and far more institutional.

U.S. Navy Nightmare: The Chinese Fleet Doesn't Have 300 Ships, It Has 650

David Axe at Test Feed Using Fields - 19 hours ago
*David Axe* *Security, Asia* You have to count the Chinese coast guard and maritime militia. The Chinese fleet is much bigger than most people think. And that should compel the United States to reconsider its Pacific maritime strategy, one expert argued. The People's Liberation Army Navy by 2020 will possess between 313 and 342 warships, the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence *estimated*. By comparison, in mid-2018 the U.S. Navy possessed 285 warships.

Why we need to be wary of narratives of economic catastrophe

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
[image: pingnews/Flickr
] Yes, the narratives are compelling and also nonsense. The all fail for one specific reason. Money itself. Money stores purchasing power. Obviously seven billion people need to do this and the moment they have a pool of extra money, they are in the market for investments which cycles that money into immediate use. Now also understand that money is created by the community, it is spent, and then it is taxed back over time. It really is that simple. It is also only inconvenient to eliminate one currency and to replace it with a second ...

Eyewitness Reports 2016 Pterosaur Sighting in Gary, Indiana

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
Interesting. The lack of a wing flap at all is puzzling and you really want to see the hardware of a modern drone. Yet that also needed to been seen as well. It could well be that the original pterosaur never actually flapped its wings except perhaps to launch and always depended on gliding. Now think boomerang. Side slipping could provide acceleration and possible lift as well and manipulating that may produce unexpected results. We do have pretty convincing reports from other informants, but those do i think show wing movement. Less though may be characteristic. All goo... more »

The Uncertain Future of Particle Physics

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
To put the problem of empirical physics into the proper perspective you need to understand that from my own understanding through my Cloud Cosmology derived from understanding the Space Time Pendulum, that it is correct to state that the electron has approximately 2400 vertices and by implication that the neutron around three million vertices. Fortunately it is all internally symmetric except the foundational particle or neutrino does not allow perfect packing. Yet the sheer scale of three million vertices generates a simulation problem that will still boggle our best computers ... more »
