Looks like things continue to be hot on the border, but it doesn’t seem like they are escalating.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

A great story here.  I’ve been through Goshen, Indiana on several occasions.  I’d never heard this story before.

Looks like the USMC’s F-35s have been used in combat off of one of the LHA “baby carriers”. This is a good demonstration of the value of the B version of the F-35s, allowing lower intensity missions using the small carriers instead of a CVBG.

Going in hot.

India and Pakistan are shooting at each other.  At least one Indian MiG-21 appears to have been downed.  Pakistani JL-17s may have been involved.  When two countries with nukes start shooting at each other, we should all get worried.
