Or actually a pair of BlackjacksLooks like Putin is flexing his muscles again.  I saw a few days ago that B-52 were doing the reverse route penetration practices, so this may just be a reaction.

Looks like the Syrians might have some explaining to do to the Russians.

Looks like the Japanese are seeking closer integration of missile defense with the US. Smart on their part and makes sense for the US as well.

The DDG-1000 program (the stealth destroyer) has been a money pit for the Navy.  If the armed forces want more money, they need to eliminate crap like this.

Story here claims that the Chinese have the engine problems on their J-20 fixed.  I’ll believe it when I see it.

An interesting article by a UK PhD student on the problems China has in trying to replicate stolen technology.  I am sure they will succeed in the long run, but how long is the long run?

Russia loses a nuclear powered cruise missile.  I am sure they are making every effort to recover it, as is the USN.  Wonder who will get to it first.

Russian weapon in space?

A new Russian satellite is behaving oddly.  Turns out it may be a weapon.  As I have said before I think Russia is largely a paper tiger, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still have to pay attention to them.  All the more reason for the US to be committed to space for both civilian and military purposes.
