Unplanned Air Strikes Kill Civilians All the Time

On Oct. 6, U.S. Gen. John Campbell, the commander of all NATO forces in Afghanistan, called the air strike on a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz a mistake.

Secret Russian Satellite Could Have Collided With Another Object

Cosmos-2491, -2499 and -2504 are three very strange Russian satellites. They dance. They change orbits. They get close to their leftover booster rockets and then move away again. In April, one may have collided with another object. But if so, the impact was soft enough to not cause any damage. But...

Syria’s Rebels Are Ready to Fight Russia

Syria’s civil war is anything but predictable. Russian air strikes have targeted the Islamic State’s bases in Aleppo and Raqqa governorates, but many others have pounded Hama, Homs, Idlib and Latakia governorates. In those latter areas, Islamic State has few fighters, but the Syrian opposition — including the Free Syrian Army — has...

Concerning Sacrificing Children To Moloch

So you don’t have to, I try to stay abreast of the latest silliness on Daily Kos, Salon, Balloon Juice and Mother Jones.  But it’s all so dreary, droll, boring and awful.  Seriously, the writers over these web sites at one time at least spoke honestly about their real intentions concerning guns.  But they don’t […]

“We have individuals that we’ve needed to debrief in Pashto/Dari”

Coming soon to a church, school, mall, place of work, or neighborhood near you: The Texas DPS Director Steven McCraw expressed concern over the possible infiltration of ISIS through the border during a visit to Laredo this week.

Notes From HPS

David Codrea: Basically, Clinton is dictating the terms of surrender to American gun owners and presuming they will just roll over and take it, and that she will have the power to go door-to-door and enforce her demands when a critical mass tells her to go pound sand. If a growing “I will not comply” […]

The Link Between Mass Shootings and Terrorism

Part of my work is trying to understand why people kill. For years, I’ve studied it and found a resemblance between mass shooters in the United States and many people who become terrorists. In many cases, such as the recent shooting at a community college in Oregon, the killers belong...

Zaslon — Russia’s Ultra-Secretive Special Ops in Syria

When it comes to wars, nations like to have insurance policies in case things go bad. Russia isn’t an exception. The Kremlin’s ground-attack planes in Syria are not there by themselves, but have cover from high-tech fighter jets in case anyone, namely the United States, tries to challenge the Russian air force....

Get a Load of the U.S. Army’s New Pop-Up Base Defenses

In video games such as the Command & Conquer and StarCraft series, players defend their bases by quickly building defenses seemingly out of nowhere. Now, the U.S. Army wants to see about turning that into a reality. On Sept. 25, the Army – along with troops from 14 other countries –...

U.S. Allies Say They’re Not Worried About Russian Warplanes

Officially, the United States and its allies aren’t too concerned by the appearance of Russian warplanes over Syria. On Sept. 30, the Kremin’s air force pounded targets in Syria for the first time. Despite serious concerns about a potential air-to-air confrontation, the Pentagon insisted it had no plans to change course. “The...

The Red Web: Russia and the Internet
