Russian Guns Firing Plastic Bullets: Deadly Innovation or Old Hat?
Charlie Gao, The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Charlie Gao* *Firearms, * While the use of plastic driving bands may be old hat to NATO militaries, it’s easy to see why the Russian military is getting excited over them. *Here's What You Need to Remember: * Recently Russian concern SPA Pribor announced it had developed plastic based ammunition for light artillery. While this may appear to be impressive and innovative at first, the trick is in the wording. Only a small portion of the ammunition is plastic. *(This first appeared last month.)* The majority of Pribor’s new 30mm ammunition is still made of metal. The case is stil...
New Fleet Needed: How the Navy Must Reform to Win the Next War
James Holmes, The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*James Holmes* *U.S. Navy, Americas* [image: U.S. Navy] America needs enough warships, and also the right kind and mix of those vessels, if it is to survive a major war. *Key point: *A good military can help deter future conflicts. But, if it needs to fight and win, then it needs to be ready to do so. Were the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps after the Cold War and the hippy movement of 1968 separated at birth? In a sense, yes. Both made it an article of faith that history had ended or was simply irrelevant. Both took to extremes Henry Ford’s quip that “history is more or less bunk”—a ...
Does the U.S. Air Force Need New F-15s?
Sebastien Roblin, The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *F-15, Americas* The F-15X is specifically intended to replace F-15C and two-seat F-15D fighters. *Here's What You Need to Know: *The worthwhileness of the F-15X concept comes down to whether the Air Force should pay to maintain a lower-tier force of cost-efficient fighters to handle missions that don't require the F-35's special capabilities. *(This article first appeared in 2018.)* The aviation world is abuzz with rumors that the U.S. Air Force is evaluating the purchase of a brand-new F-15X model of the legendary 45-year-old F-15 Eagle twin-engine fighter....
Editor, Dances With Bears - 21 hours ago
By John Helmer, Moscow @bears_with The first session of the inquest into the death of Dawn Sturgess, held in London on Tuesday, was almost entirely predictable.

“Two Fatal Errors in its Assessment of the SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic”. What SAGE Has Got Wrong
arclein, Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
The really important take home is that prior exposure to the common cold made at least 30% of the population naturally immune to COV 19 before it ever showed up. This also means if you do then become exposed and have a scant reaction, you will still have the full immunity conferred without antigens showing up. Right now we have all likely been exposed with only a few susceptible been aware of it. The present arguement supports full global immunity in general and that the so called pandemic is long over. Crap testing has to now end. false positive sefrve no one. So far ...

National File and Post Millennial, Need To Know - 21 hours ago

Mozambique’s The Newest Front In The US’ So-Called Global War On Terror
Andrew KORYBKO, OrientalReview.org - 22 hours ago
Many observers missed the US’ designation in early March of Mozambique’s “Al Shabaab” as an ISIS-affiliated global terrorist organization and its subsequent dispatch of roughly a dozen Green Berets to the country to aid the national military in its counter-terrorist operations, but this development signals that the Southern African state […]

* College Debt & Military Service* An injustice against our military and veterans' communities is being prepared in the halls of Congress at the same time the men and women of the National Guard stand post outside the Capitol building to protect lawmakers from an unexplained threat.

Drone Swarms and Star Trek: What SciFi Says About Future Naval Warfare
James Holmes, The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*James Holmes* *Future Warfare, Asia* [image: Future Warfare] Naval commanders could learn a lot from fiction and could be inspired on how to win future conflicts. *Key point: *Drones and computer viruses are potent weapons in the right hands. How might these technologies be applied among the world's navies? How would you punk the U.S. Navy if the lords of naval warfare handed you the keys to, say, China’s navy? Well, you might do the obvious thing: read or watch some science fiction! *This first appeared earlier and is being reposted due to reader interest.* In the latest *Star...
Why the Russia-U.S. Nuclear Arms Race Is a Huge Waste of Money
Michael Peck, The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, Eurasia* Is this really the best use of America’s defense dollars? *Here's What You Need to Remember: *It is equally hard to see how GBSD will enhance American security. The Air Force says the Minuteman III force is becoming too vulnerable to attack. But if Russia were to contemplate launching a nuclear strike upon the United States, it seems unlikely that the age of U.S. ICBMs would make a difference. “If you go on with this nuclear arms race, all you are going to do is make the rubble bounce,” warned Winston Churchill. That was in 1952, just two years...
Five Times the British Military Suffered Tough Battlefield Defeats
Michael Peck, The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *History, World* As the saying goes, victory has many fathers, but defeat is an orphan. *Here's What You Need to Remember: * *More From The National Interest: * *Where World War III Could Start This Year* *How the F-35 Stealth Fighter Almost Never Happened * *Russia Has Missing Nuclear Weapons Sitting on the Ocean Floor * *How China Could Sink a U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier * For centuries, the sun never set on the British Empire. But eclipses there were, and more than a few that stained British arms. Like the Romans, the British fought a variety of enemies. They a...
How Do Russian Tanks Fare Against American-Made TOW Missiles?
Sebastien Roblin, The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Missiles, Middle East* Syria offers a recent example. *Here's What You Need to Know: *TOW missiles have been able to inflict real damage in Syria. *(This article first appeared in 2018.)* The interconnected conflicts raging across the Middle East today have amounted to a dreadful human catastrophe with spiraling global consequence. One of their lesser effects has been to deflate the reputations of Western main battle tanks mistakenly thought to be night-invulnerable in the popular imagination. Iraqi M1 Abrams tanks not only failed to prevent he capture of Mo...

*"CV-19 Vaccine Warning – CV-19 Cure – Must Watch Videos"* By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com "The Covid 19 (CV-19) headlines out so far this week are downright confusing and contradictory. One says “Covid-19’s Fourth Wave is hitting the U.S Hard.” Another says, “Texas Hits Record Low Covid Cases 3 Weeks After Lifting All Pandemic Restrictions.” What are you to believe? The mainstream media (MSM), CDC and most politicians have been lying about almost everything. The idea they are pushing that only a vaccine is the answer to what many people call a “Plandemic” is a huge lie. Let me pro...

Contending With Defeat: 5 Losses the Navy Had to Learn From
James Holmes, The National Interest - 1 day ago
*James Holmes* *U.S. Navy, Americas* [image: U.S. Navy] Bitter defeats are terrible things, but they can help provide real-world lessons that help a fleet adapt to fight another day. *Key point: *Defeat can kill, but so can hubris. Arrogance is dangerous, but focusing on past failures can help put off such attitudes and ensure any military branch fares better in future battles. It’s crucial to remember and learn from defeat. People and the institutions they comprise commonly tout past triumphs while soft pedaling setbacks. That’s natural, isn’t it? Winning is the hallmark of a su...
The Death of a Japanese Pilot Put The F-35 Stealth Jet Under A Microscope

*Charlie Gao* *F-35, * Mechanical failure or human error? At the time of the last “Knock it off” transmission, the pilot’s voice was calm and not strained, and the aircraft didn’t diverge significantly from a straight path following that transmission. *Here's What You Need to Remember: *A report recommends additional training and simulator time for pilots. The fatal crash of a Japanese Air Self Defense Forces (JASDF) F-35A in April 2019 lead to much discussion about the future of the program.

How Europe's Aster Missile Defense Stacks Up Against the Patriot Missile
Sebastien Roblin, The National Interest - 1 day ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Missiles, Europe* The Aster system is similar to the Patriot missile battery. *Here's What You Need to Know: *In around a half-dozen tests, Asters have shot down a diverse spectrum of targets including supersonic sea-skimming cruise missiles. Ballistic missiles are making a comeback in the twenty-first century because they give countries like China, Iran, North Korea and Russia the ability to strike targets hundreds or thousands of miles away without having to expose vulnerable warplanes to interception. The precision allowed by modern guidance systems allows...
The U.S. Military Has Little to Fear From Iranian Arms Purchases
Michael Peck, The National Interest - 1 day ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, * Iran’s military is switching from unconventional warfare to more conventional weapons. *Here's What You Need to Remember: *While Iran’s rulers have no aspirations to be a superpower, they do seem to covet being a regional hegemon as the Persian Empire was. So far, Iran has waged war on the cheap by using proxies rather than massive troop commitments as the U.S. did in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. But as Hezbollah has discovered when its Iranian subsidies were slashed, even war on the cheap can be expensive. Iran’s military is switching from unconven...
Location Matters: What the Navy Learned From the Guadalcanal Campaign
James Holmes, The National Interest - 1 day ago
*James Holmes* *World War II History, Americas* [image: World War II History] Sometimes a certain island or piece of real estate is worth fighting over even if it is not where you would rather put your forces. *Key point: *Certain strategic ground is vital to hold because it gives the holder an advantage. That means not only fighting for certain locations, but also ensuring such areas do not fall to your enemy. This year marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands. The battle is one of seven naval engagements that—together with hard-ground fightin...
Why Respecting China’s Navy Is the Key to Being Able to Deter and Defeat It
James Holmes, The National Interest - 1 day ago
*James Holmes* *U.S. Navy, Asia* [image: U.S. Navy] Hubris and contempt have led to the downfall of many great empires and many powerful Navies. *Key point: *Reality is reality and looking down on a rival fleet is one way to blind yourself to what they are capable of. Wise leaders in the U.S. Navy would do well to study and respect the Chinese Navy for the dangerous threat it really is. Admirals say the darnedest things.

“The Past Is Not Dead. It's Not Even past”
Unknown, The Conservative Socrates - 1 day ago
In his line, “The past is not dead. It's not even past,” William Faulkner is referring to the paradox of time. We live in the past, the present exists in our mind as an abstraction, and the future never arrives. The moment you say, “right now”—that moment is gone; it is past; it is history. You can reminisce the past, you may try to understand it, but you no longer live in it. By paraphrasing Faulkner, a philosophical point might be made: “The past philosophies are not dead. They aren’t even past.” Philosophical ideas never die. On wings of new arguments, they keep coming back in age...
