Apparently the F-22 and F-35 recently went head to head in wargames.  Which aircraft came out on top is a big secret.

With Russia in the news lately, it is worth noting that the US is making huge investments in countries close to the Russian border to upgrade their ability to host and support US forces.

Poland increases the size of its army by 50%

Poland is expanding its army from a 100,000 man force to 150,000.  I think this is smart, thought I suspect that Putin is more likely to try to destabilize Poland politically and foment a revolt.  If I was a Polish citizen, I’d be nervous.

Moving NATO units into Poland and the Baltic republics.  I personally think this is the right thing to do.  I don’t think Putin is doing anything but bluffing, but I think it is smart to show that we are taking things seriously.

Story here.  The question is, is he doing it because he knows he’s weak?  Is he bluffing?

And, as I said before.
