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.

Lasers

China has developed a hand-held laser. It looks to be mainly useful for crowd control and maybe anti-terror operations at the moment.

The US may put laser weapons on the F-35.  Interesting.

Not to be outdone, the US Army is going to field a 100Kw laser for anti-drone, anti-mortar defense.

Not good news

If Chinese forces are actively using lasers to try an blind our pilots, you have to think that the Chinese are willing to up the tensions between the two countries.  I wonder if this was a local commander or some local troops going off script.  If not, that worries me.

Interesting report on the weapons used in the recent strikes on Syria.  Will see if it deters Assad from using such weapons.

Is deployment closer than we all think?  This story makes me wonder.
