    Slaughterbots: a weapon of the future This fictional video was created as a warning about what may be real in the near future: tiny little drones with artificial intelligence, facial recognition, and enough explosive to destroy a person’s head. One drone can kill one specific person. A big group of drones can kill a large number of specific people, or an entire city for that matter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CO6M2HsoIA

    U.S. Naval Institute ^ | November 22, 2017 | Staff
    The U.S. Navy has always been an innovator. It pioneered the Global Positioning System, developed nuclear propulsion, and deployed the first operational laser weapon. The recently commissioned USS Zumwalt (DDG-1000) is brimming with bleeding-edge technology. Its stealth design, Integrated Power System, and long-range gun firing capabilities make it the most sophisticated ship in the world. Likewise, the lead ship in the new carrier class USS Gerald R Ford (CVN-78) features many technological advances including an electromagnetic aircraft launch system. However, the Department of the Navy is not always in a rush to phase out and replace assets that continue to...

    Japan is developing its own long-range cruise missile amid escalating tensions in the Korean peninsula. The missile, described as the Japanese Tomahawk, will reportedly be capable of being launched from aircraft, ships and land. Research on these missiles will begin next year, reports Yomiuri, a Japanese news outlet. This will be Japans first full-fledged cruise missile. Apart from being a deterrent to North Korea, the so-called Japanese Tomahawk will also serve to recapture remote islands occupied by enemies, says the report, likely referring to the long-running feud that Japan has with China over a remote island in the South China...

  • TSA Fails to Spot Weapons More Than Half the Time

    Airport screeners working for the badly run Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reportedly failed to detect weapons more than 70 percent of the time in undercover tests but that massive failure rate is actually an improvement from a similar test two years ago. Undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock knives, guns and explosives through airport checkpoints earlier this year, and succeeded far more often than they failed. But at least airport security is improving slightly. When investigators did the same thing two years earlier, TSA equipment and personnel failed 95 percent of the time, prompting major changes in the...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 9/13/17 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Was the top secret space coast launch late this past week really carrying components of "Rods from God," the nickname of a doomsday weapon known as "Project Thor" that can rain hell on North Korea in an attack traveling at Mach Ten? In an exclusive feature, the National ENQUIRER describes America's possible deployment of satellite arsenals of tungsten, non-nuclear rods the size of telephone poles, "the equivalent of a meteor crashing into the Earth's crust." The tabloid explains that deployment of this weaponry by the US military awaits only the President's "GO" order. "Unlike a nuclear weapon, the Rods from...

But the event has been surrounded in controversy with Scotland Yard confirming officers arrested 100 protesters seeking to block access to the ExCel centre in London's Docklands.

    US President Donald Trump on Monday told his South Korean counterpart Washington was willing to approve arms sales worth many billions of dollars to Seoul following Pyongyangs test of what it said was a miniaturized hydrogen bomb. President Trump provided his conceptual approval for the purchase of many billions of dollars worth of military weapons and equipment from the United States by South Korea, said the White House, without providing details of any specific new contracts. The United States sold arms worth nearly $5 billion (Dh18.4 billion) to South Korea between 2010 and 2016, according to an analysis by the...

    In Australia, I became aware of an administrative procedure where the state police can find a person unfit to possess either firearms, firearms parts, or prohibited weapons. What exactly were prohibited weapons under Australian law?This website lists prohibited weapons. The list is extensive and, from an American perspective, bizarre. Some of the weapons are antiquated. Others are modern, while some may be simple mistakes or misunderstandings. I have studied weapons law of many American states. It appears that someone in Australia (probably the George Soros funded group that was headed by Rebecca Peters) looked up all the prohibited weapons...

    After the horrendous clash between white supremacists and Antifa Communists in Charlottesville, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) claimed that the police did not break up the fight because of the fact that the Neo-Nazis were so heavily armed that separating the groups would have been explosive. During an interview with Black Lives Matter activists DeRay McKesson, McAuliffe stated that the police had found weapons caches around the city, and that intervention would have created an even more violent situation, They had battering rams and, you know, we had picked up different weapons they had stashed around the city, McAuliffe told...

    Virginia Gov.Terry McAuliffe (D.) was contradicted by the Virginia State Police again on Wednesday after he claimed weapons were hidden around Charlottesville during a white supremacist rally turned riot. During an interview with Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson, McAuliffe explained why police were often hesitant to try and break up violent altercations between white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and Antifa factions. He said the white supremacists and neo-Nazis were heavily armed and prepared to commit violent acts from the start, and police were trying to avoid escalating the violence. He then claimed police had discovered weapons caches throughout the city.

    Virginia State Police on Tuesday contradicted Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s (D) claim that Charlottesville protesters had weapons “stashed around the city.” McAuliffe made the claim about stashed weapons during an interview on DeRay McKesson’s podcast Save the People. Twitter user @nycsouthpaw quoted McAuliffe using the podcast interview to describe protesters, saying, “They had battering rams and we had picked up different weapons that they had stashed around the city.” Yet the very next day–August 15–Virginia State Police countered McAuliffe’s narrative by denying that any weapons caches were discovered during sweeps of the city. Reason’s CJ Ciaramella tweeted: "I just got comment...

    China started secret negotiations with Taliban terrorists at least as early as late 2014, and last week diplomatically supported the Taliban, along with allies Pakistan, Iran and Russia. Chinas dialogue rewards Taliban violence, increases Taliban influence and sidelines the elected government of Afghanistan. China and its allies should follow the global norm: no negotiation with terrorists. Failing that, the U.S. and Europe should sanction Chinese companies involved in Afghanistan. Chinas history with Islamic extremists in Afghanistan stretches back to the 1980s, when it provided weapons to anti-Soviet mujahideen. During Taliban rule of Afghanistan in the late 1990s, China promised to...

    The Berlin administration is reportedly going to suspend military cooperation with the Turkish state on top of the sanctions announced by the German Foreign Minister. According to an article in Bild, one of the best selling daily newspapers in Germany, the Merkel administration is suspending all armament projects with Turkey. The newspaper cites government sources for the article. This will be the first time a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member country suspends military cooperation with another member. Several German arms manufacturers have factories in Turkey. In the previous months, the German government had barred arms sales deals with Turkey,...

    A new Bill, SB719, has been passed by both the House and the Senate in Oregon that allows police to take your legally owned weapons AND permit without your permission, even if you have never appeared in a court or been charged with a crime. It is based on the 2014, Californian Bill SB 719A, that enacts what is known as an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO). The reasoning behind this Bill has been explained as a way of preventing at-risk people of committing suicide. But the reality is that this is just a way of allowing the State to...

This was a dangerous situation." KSTP previously spoke with the man who called police to the scene. He asked his identity not be revealed. He said he walked by a...

    LEE COUNTY, Fla. - If you're a concealed weapon permit holder, your information could be in danger after a statewide hack. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says the data breach affects more than 16,000 people and some social security numbers may be at risk. "It's a little nerve-racking to know that it happened here in Florida," said Evelyn Greenway. Officials say people with concealed weapons licenses who renewed online may have had their names accessed. An additional 469 others have been notified their social security numbers may have been hacked. "Somebody knows this house has weapons in...
