  4. (Washington, DC) -- Today, the Saudi Ambassador to the United States Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir hosted a press conference at the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia and issued the following statement: “Saudi Arabia has launched military operations in Yemen, as part of a coalition of over ten countries in response to a direct request from the legitimate government of Yemen. The operation will be limited in nature, and designed to protect the people of Yemen and its legitimate government from a takeover by the Houthis. A violent extremist militia. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries tried to facilitate a peaceful transition of government in Yemen, but the Houthis have continuously undercut the process by occupying territory and seizing weapons belonging to the government. In spite of repeated efforts by the GCC, G10 countries and the Special Representative of the U.N. Secretary General to seek a peaceful way to implement the GCC initiatives and the outcomes of the national dialogue that define the political transition in Yemen, the Houthis have reneged on every single agreement they have made and continue their quest to take over the country by violent means. They captured the capital city of Sana’a, they placed the legitimate president, prime minister and cabinet members under house arrest, they seized the security services and they continue to expand their occupation of the country.” “In a letter dated March 7, 2015, President Hadi of Yemen made a request of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz to convene a conference under the auspices of the GCC to which all Yemeni political factions seeking to preserve security and stability in Yemen would be invited. The Houthis rejected this invitation and continued their violent onslaught in Yemen to the point where they were threatening to occupy the city of Aden, which had become the temporary capital for the legitimate government of President Hadi after he was able to escape from Sana’a. In a letter, dated March 24, 2015, President Hadi requested, based on the principle of self-defense, enshrined in Article 51 of the U.N. Charter, as well as in the Arab League charter’s collective defense mechanism, a request for immediate support – by all means necessary – including military intervention to protect Yemen and its people from the continued Houthi aggression and to support it in fighting al Qaeda and ISIL.” “Based on the appeal from President Hadi, and based on the Kingdom’s responsibility to Yemen and its people, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, along with its allies within the GCC and outside the GCC, launched military operations in support of the people of Yemen and their legitimate government.” “May God Almighty protect the brave soldiers and may He grant them success in their noble mission.” Source

  6. The Great War

    Read it over Christmas. I’m not that knowledgeable on the Great War so I can’t say that I spotted any inaccuracies or strange interpretations of events. I have the same reservation for Hastings as you, but the book was like $5 so I picked it up.
  7. Bash the ATD-X thread

    Japan has revealed their 5th generation fighter/demonstrator which is officially called the X-2 for now. Here is a video of what appears to be the ATD-X's engines and an RC test model which looks hilarious for some reason. Another video showing some computer modeled manuevers and some stereotypical Japanese music at the end.

  9. Random Nuclear Stuff

    Putin has declared that Russia has a SLAM/Project Pluto-style nuclear cruise missile, the fabled "Status-6" nuclear UUV/torpedo, and a new hypersonic missile which I don't know too much about.

  12. General news thread

    They kinda tried after a couple of days, but I don't know how much I'd trust them to actually carry this out if things went differently.
  13. This thread will be dedicated to BS news articles about historic, scientific, and military topics. Most journalists don't seem to be too worried about reporting facts and findings, but rather cherry-picking statements in order to get the most views. Recently a lot of news sites have been reporting on a new "mini ice age" that scientists are predicting. That isn't really what they seem to be what Prof Zharkova's research suggests, it is that the sun has two dynamos which is interesting in its own right. They then suggest that the solar activity(sunspots, which have very little to do with solar output) will be low like during the "Little Ice Age"(which is itself a complex topic that most journalists don't understand), it is not suggested that temperatures will drop.

    I'm anxiously waiting for the Turkey's K2-derived Altay to have all these teething problems which will be denied with as much vigor as the Indians defend the Arjun.

  16. The Worm Thread (For Actual Worms)

    I thought this was going to be about actual worms and I'm now disappointed. I just came across this paper on the intestinal worms of a German soldier in France during WW1, yeah worms are cool

  19. Ancient Arthropods

    I introduce the wonderfully weird 2m long Aegirocassis benmoulae from the forgotten times known as the Ordovician. This animal is likely a filter-feeder, filling in a new niche during the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event. More in depth video on the Aegirocassis, especially on the implication on arthropod limbs.
