You have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at this.  Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.

Go Navy!

I spend time on here criticizing the USN for its poor procurement choices and other things.  However, there is no doubt they are a fine fighting force capable of doing amazing things.  Story here.

The US government is going to sell three new weapons systems to Taiwan. Good.  The US needs to be firm in its commitment to Taiwan, especially in light of China’s broken promises regarding Hong Kong.

SpaceX gets all the attention, but Blue Origin is doing some interesting things.  Keep and eye on them.  It is good to see multiple companies doing this stuff. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

Story here.  Telling that it wasn’t spotted until a few days ago.  This one is small, but sooner or later we are going to get smacked hard by a bigger one. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

It appears the US has build and flown the prototype of its next generation fighter.  Frankly, I didn’t see this happening for another 5 years or so. (h/t to Jim Bates)
