Question here.  Iran simply doesn’t have the ability to project its military power much beyond its borders except thru the use of terrorist proxies.

I’ve thought for quite a while that a program to train up large numbers of volunteers with first aid training to assist in natural disasters and mass casualty events would be a good idea.  Apparently there are programs like this one that are taking things even a step further.  I hope this program spreads.

This sounds like good news.  Sooner rather than later one of these systems is going to get a real world workout.

It appears that a private Israeli firm is about to land a satellite on the moon.  The satellite was launched via a SpaceX rocket, another private firm.  If successful, Israel will become only the fourth country to land a satellite on the moon.  Clearly, much of the future of space exploration is in the private sector.

All jokes about French “cheese eating surrender monkeys” aside, this is the example of a man’s man.  RIP.

The US has deployed a THAAD unit to Israel.  The stated reason is a quick deployment exercise.  I have to wonder if maybe there isn’t another underlying reason.

The USAF is upgrading its “bunker buster” bombs.  I predict we’ll test these in Afghanistan soon and I’ll be interested to see if we supply them to the Israelis as well.
