    Given the recent tensions between Arab states in the Gulf, US intervention in Syria and Iraq, Russian intervention in Syria, and the Jerusalem crisis new understandings and perhaps alliances are emerging in the Middle East.

    The Middle East can be divided into the following groups, these are not alliances but groups with a similar vision of the region:

    • Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Cyprus, Israel, USA, Northern Iraqi Kurds, SDF
    • Qatar, Turkey, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Palestinians, Russia
    • Iran (and proxies), Iraq, Syria, Russia (yes in both groups)

    Dragon 17 is one of the largest exercises on the NATO calendar. With over 17,000 soldiers participating from the United States, Baltic nations and a gamut of other NATO partners, this Polish-led exercise is one of the deepest in scope and largest in scale.

    Kobra 17 is a NATO-led exercise featuring special forces from NATO member nations and NATO partner states including Ukraine and Georgia.

Rather it trains special operations units from across NATO and its partner states in conducting offensive and defensive actions against a peer adversary.

    I’m working on getting into the Air Force as an officer. My wife isn’t as pleased with this decision because we don’t know what happens for us if I do get accepted. If they base me elsewhere, how do we move, we really don’t have the money to just up and move hundreds or more miles away. Thanks for any help!

    During the Cold War military strategists often questioned the limits of the necessary defense: how much nuclear weapon is needed for the country to achieve a guaranteed destruction of a potential enemy? Perhaps the same question is being asked now in Pyongyang.
    In the statements made by North Korean officials it is often emphasized how important it is not to look weak in the face of external provocation, especially from its historical opponents such as South Korea or United States. In this sense, military equipment and weapons tests regularly conducted by North Korea may pursue other purposes in addition to nuclear and any other weapons frightening. Thus, the North Korean leadership...

    Democratic People's Republic of Korea is one of the most closed-off countries in the world. Most political experts consider it as a totalitarian state that succeeded in achieving some progress in a few industry sectors. For instance, North Korea managed to build nuclear weapons and launch their own satellite to the Earth’s orbit.

    North Korea was put into Bush’s “axis of evil” in 2002. Donald Trump labeled its leader Kim Jong-Un “a sick puppy” and promised to deal with the issue. So what was the solution that came to his mind?
    We all know the tactics Washington has been using for the decades. Their favorite method – the so called “false flag operation” – involves arranging of black...

    Britain to protect the Falklands with a £78million ‘Sky Sabre’ missile defence system after Argentina buys new fighter jets

    BRITAIN has spent £78million on a new missile defence shield for the Falklands — as Argentina bolsters its air power with a fleet of fighter jets.


    Sky Sabre uses the same technology as Israel's imposing Iron Dome system and is designed to destroy incoming rockets and shells.
