    Proposed Helicopter Would Replace MH-6/AH-6 Little Bird if Adopted. Lockheed Martin has released a new promotional video showing the S-97 Raider light tactical helicopter demonstrating many of its unique performance capabilities. The S-97 Raider, if adopted by the U.S. military, would replace the aging family of MH-6/AH-6 Little Bird helicopters widely used since the Vietnam conflict as special operations and observation/light attack helicopters. The MH-6/AH-6 family first flew in 1963 making it a legacy platform that has been continuously updated for expanded roles. Most airframes in U.S. service are now aging and, because a light tactical helicopter is subjected to...

    North Korea threatened Sunday to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military prowess as two Japanese navy ships joined a U.S. strike group for exercises in the Philippine Sea. "Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," according to North Korea's ruling Workers Party's newspaper, the Rodong Sinmum. The paper also likened the USS Carl Vinson to a "gross animal" and said a strike on the carrier would be "an actual example to show our military's force."
  • Pope Francis compares migrant detention centers to Nazi concentration camps

    The leader of the Catholic Church went off script to denounce the conditions refugees face after entering Europe. Pope Francis was leading a service in Rome for modern-day Christian martyrs when he made the comparison. During a service on Tiber Island in central Rome on Saturday, Pope Francis made a comparison between refugee camps and Nazi concentration camps. Pope Francis recalled meeting a refugee in a camp on the Greek island of Lesbos in 2016. "I don't know if that man is still in Lesbos or if he has managed to go somewhere else, I don't know if he was...

    This is sad. But who could blame them? A big-mouthed woman erupted in a major rant on a flight about to depart San Antonio, Texas, and she seemed to know what she was doing. After the recent United Airlines debacle where a doctor was forcibly removed from a plane that caused a media firestorm, police seemed afraid to remove the beligerant woman when they arrived. And she took full advantage, even referencing the doctor and said she wouldn’t be as nice as he was. Video of the ranting passenger was posted to YouTube on Wednesday shows her swearing at crew...

  • [N. Koreea] Realistic solution needed for NK nuke issue(Hitting nuke facilities OK)

    Realistic solution needed for NK nuke issue Source:Global Times Published: 2017/4/22 11:07:15 Tensions continue to rise in the Korean Peninsula, despite North Korea's latest missile launch failure, and aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson expected arrival in Korean waters 10 days later than originally planned. Furthermore, Pyongyang will likely conduct its sixth nuclear test and also launch an intercontinental ballistic missile. When taking those into account, any type of emergency situation could arise in the Korean Peninsula at any given time. On Friday, US President Donald Trump, in using what is obviously his preferred sounding board to the public, tweeted, "China...

    NORTH Korea has threatened to hit Australia with a nuclear strike if it continues to follow the United States. The stern warning comes after Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said on Thursday that the rogue nuclear-armed nation would be hit with further Australian sanctions as a clear message that its behaviour will not be tolerated. Ms Bishop also called on China to do more to pressure North Korea into stamping out its hostile and aggressive ways and dumping its nuclear warheads and ballistic missile program. In response to the comments, North Korea’s state-run KCNA news agency on Saturday quoted a foreign...

    French voters will finally be able to vote for a new president today. They've suffered for years under the less than inspiring leadership of socialist Francois Hollande, but today they take the first step to replacing him with someone else -- someone better. Or not, of course. After all, although two candidates -- Francois Fillon and Marine Le Pen -- are considered to be "conservative," they are not exactly the favorites to win the election. In Fillon's case, even proceeding to the second round may prove impossible. The first round of France's presidential election only serves to separate the top...

    Sen. Joe Manchin – who has claimed in the past to be pro-life – appears now to be supporting abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood. The West Virginia Democrat appeared in a photo, tweeted by Planned Parenthood South Atlantic West Virginia, standing behind a poster that states, “I stand with Planned Parenthood.” The tweet immediately drew the ire of national pro-life leaders who in the past have counted Manchin among members of Congress who support the rights of the unborn. “Sen. Manchin used to call himself pro-life, but this is the last straw,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser,...

    Last week Trump supporters and leftist social justice warriors met on the political field of battle in Berkeley, California. Words were exchanged, as were punches. And while an alt-right leader was punched in the face, by all accounts even the social justice warriors admit that they got a major beat-down. This prompted a reddit discussion among the left’s tolerant resistance movement, with many asking how they can more effectively go to war against anyone who disagrees with their social, political, and economic views. The anti-Trump protesters at the rally were ill-prepared for what they came to Berkeley to confront and...
