  1. Operation Gideon

    Buried today in the inner pages of the Washington Post are the outlines of an assassination attempt in Venezuela. The country has a socialist administration headed by President Maduro. President Trump says it wasn't him: At least these chaps had no air cover. It's always a dead...

  4. Royal Navy's latest ship named after programming language

    HMS Forth was launched today. It's an offshore patrol vessel. I look forward to sister ships in due course. HMS COBOL, perhaps. There was Her Majesty's Trawler Algol a while ago, and three warships called HMS Java. HMS Hermes celebrated early network language development before reincarnation as...

  5. Floating casino still in dry dock

    Here's a little puzzle. Why has the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) started to exercise an aircraft carrier training formation this year, given that they don't have an aircraft carrier? According to the PLA Chief of General Staff Department, the Central Military Commission recently decided to...

  6. Memorial Day

    I thought I'd look up what Americans memorialize tomorrow. Memorial Day "commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service", according to the US Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Public Affairs whatever that may be. Assuming the commemoration is of men and women who...

  12. This Would Be be a Tough Fight

    It has to be tough for men and women to open fire on a group of kids. I would imagine they are placed at the front of assaults for just that reason. It's so sad, what these kids have lost and can never really get back. Terror trainees: New ISIS video shows indoctrination of kids as young as 5...

  18. T-72m Ride Along In Syria.

    This is a video of a T-72M tank fighting in Alleppo Syria. It's just a camera mounted on the turret. I have to respect the bravery and dedication of the SAA tank crews. Fighting with tanks in a city is known to be suicidal for obvious reasons. So far they're doing better than expected. The...
