DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 21 hours ago
*by Noah* I'm sure Trump children would love to go fight Iranians. After all, they love to travel to faraway lands and shoot to kill. I know they'd arrange to have some Iranian soldiers confined in a pen without weapons or beaten unconscious and tied to a post. Then they could have some typical White House douchebag flunky like Stephanie Grisham or Stephen Miller take a photo for their tweets and FOX "News." I can see Trump now, announcing at his State Of The Union speech that Eric, Donnie Jr., and Ivanka have all signed up and requested to be sent to the front line, can't you? Ma... more »

Truth on Ukrainian Boeing, arsonists slowly unmasks itself

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 21 hours ago
Hours after an Ukrainian Boeing 737 crashed near Tehran, I wrote: I don't know about you but I would think that the Ukrainian aircraft near Tehran - 180 casualties - was taken down as a part of the revenge against the U.S. and "its allies". [...] Well, it took a day before before the U.S. and Canadian intelligence services (and any sources in the West) joined me. For another day, Iran denied that the Boeing was downed by any missiles. Finally, on Saturday morning, Iran admitted that the Iranians shot down the airplane, indeed. It was a mistake, we hear. Well, maybe, we don't know and... more »

The Javelin Missile Is About To Get Even Deadlier

Charlie Gao at The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Charlie Gao* *Security, * Here's how. Despite being the primary infantry “tank killer” system for many NATO and Western-aligned militaries, the Javelin Anti-Tank Missile System has seen relatively few upgrades since its introduction in 1996. An initial slew of small upgrades and production optimizations brought the missile from the initial FGM-148A to the FGM-148C in 1999. But the FGM-148C has been the primary missile in service for nearly two decades and only has started to be replaced by newer FGM-148E and FGM-148F missiles (the FGM-148D being an export variant). However, th... more »

Is A Semi-Automatic Handgun Or Revolver The Best For Home Defense?

Kyle Mizokami at The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, * Here's how to send those intruders running. *Key point: *A handgun is a dangerous weapon designed to kill people. That said, it is also merely a tool, and there are some situations in which it is the only tool that can effectively respond to a dangerous situation. One of the most important roles a handgun can play is in home defense. Compact and easy to secure, handguns are ideal weapons for defending one’s own home. Caliber aside, one of the major questions when picking a home-defense gun is whether or not to choose a revolver or semiautomatic handg... more »

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 23 hours ago
*Navy Times:* *Explainer: How countries in conflict, like Iran and the US, talk to each other* Even countries that have broken ties with each other need to communicate in times of crisis and war.

The OLC's Mistaken Analysis of the ERA

Soon the impeachment trial will inhale all of the constitutional oxygen. Before that happens, though, I would like to explain why I believe the OLC was wrong in concluding that Congress cannot waive the expired ratification deadline for the proposed Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. To be clear, I think that a member of Congress can in good faith reject waiving the deadline or conclude that the states that rescinded their ratifications during the 1970s should not be counted as yes votes, which would leave the ERA well short of the three-quarters required for ratification. ... more »

Twitter Openly Allowing Pedophiles to Discuss Raping Children

Admin at Medical Kidnap - 1 day ago
Previously, TFTP reported how a disturbing push was made to attempt to normalize pedophilia as a mainstream “sexual orientation.” The move involved pedophiles rebranding themselves as “Minor Attracted Persons” (MAP) with the hope that they will be accepted like the LGBTQ community. Disgustingly enough, it was somewhat effective as multiple outlets reported it like it was totally acceptable to be sexually attracted to children. While this incident was extremely disturbing, even more worrisome is that this normalization appears to be spreading and as some recent activity on Twitter i... more »

*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, Asia* North Korea has a robust WMD program. *Key point: *North Korea’s chemical-weapons threat is real and the likelihood of their use in wartime is high.

The deterioration of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) makes them more essential to victory than ever before.
