North Korea Tests New ‘Tactical Guided Weapon’ as US, South Korea Set to Begin Joint War Games

nk missile tests 4.17.2022

North Korea fired two missiles it claims are "new-type tactical guided weapons." The test comes a day before the US and South Korea kick off joint war games.  Bloomberg reported a message from the South Korean military claiming the two missiles traveled about 60 miles. Joseph Dempsey, a research associate at International Institute for Strategic Studies, said, “the ‘new tactical guided weapon’ outwardly resembles their KN-23 and KN-23 [short-range ballistic missile]. The use of a wheeled quad launcher indicates a smaller, lighter and likely shorter-range missile.” North Korean media KCNA...

Pentagon Seeks to Scrap Problematic Littoral Combat Ships in 2023

ussfreedom

The Pentagon's 2023 budget proposal calls for retiring 24 ships to make way for more expensive vessels. All nine of the Navy's Freedom-class Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) would be among those scrapped.   The LCS program has been plagued with issues. The most serious are failures in the population system. Last year, a major defect was found in the transmission, causing new ship deliveries to be halted. The frequent issues have led to the nickname "little crappy ships." Many of the Freedom-class crafts to be cut are the newest in the American fleet, with five ships commissioned in the past...

Onrush of the Russian military operation in Ukraine has placed President Volodymyr Zelensky into a troublesome situation. Due to the lack of weaponry and ammunition, copious human losses, and destruction of vital military infrastructure the Ukrainian leader started actively seeking for any sort of help from the outside. This is borne out by his numerous callouts to the European Union, NATO, and the international community for ammunition supplies, on top of his decision to create a non-visa regime for anyone who is willing to fight alongside the Ukrainian Armed Forces and far-right...

Whatever Happened to Medical Ethics?

I recall being shown in grade school a series of short films about the danger of seemingly friendly men who drove popsicle trucks and tried to lure young children into accepting free treats. We were sternly instructed to stay far, far away from such people. How the world has changed. Today we have political leaders with no knowledge of our personal health situation asking us to accept injections of experimental substances for the simple reason that they have been told by their advisers (also ignorant of our circumstances) that it would be good for us to do. It is a bizarre, even absurd...
