    MPF isn't supposed to be air droppable in the first place.
  3. A team of astronomers has discovered the most-distant body ever observed in our Solar System.  It is the first known Solar System object that has been detected at a distance that is more than 100 times farther than Earth is from the Sun. The new object was announced on Monday, December 17, 2018, by the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center and has been given the provisional designation 2018 VG18. The discovery was made by Carnegie’s Scott S. Sheppard, the University of Hawaii’s David Tholen, and Northern Arizona University’s Chad Trujillo. 2018 VG18, nicknamed “Farout” by the discovery team for its extremely distant location, is at about 120 astronomical units (AU), where 1 AU is defined as the distance between the Earth and the Sun.  The second-most-distant observed Solar System object is Eris, at about 96 AU.  Pluto is currently at about 34 AU, making 2018 VG18 more than three-and-a-half times more distant than the Solar System’s most-famous dwarf planet.
  4. Setting aside that 'the left' =/= liberal, I think the FBI is a bastion of people who think they are above the law.
  5. Trump purged the DOJ when he took office? I imagine we would have heard about it given how strongly 'the left' reacted to Comey being fired (despite wanting him gone as much, if not more, than 'the right')..
  6. Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control on 14 November conducted a successful initial ballistic flight test of its new M-SHORAD Future Interceptor from a Stryker Maneuver SHORAD Launcher (MSL) at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Lockheed Martin conducted an initial ballistic flight test of its new M-SHORAD Future Interceptor on 14 November 2018. (Robin Hughes)Lockheed Martin conducted an initial ballistic flight test of its new M-SHORAD Future Interceptor on 14 November 2018. (Robin Hughes)  The M-SHORAD Future Interceptor leverages Lockheed Martin and government technology investment in a 6 ft-class hit-to-kill interceptor designed to defeat unmanned aircraft systems (UASs), fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, and cruise missiles.  "The 5 inch diameter interceptor fits in the same envelope as the AGM-114L Longbow Hellfire missile currently being integrated on the MSL for the US Army's Stryker-based interim manoeuvre SHORAD [short-range air-defence] capability, and provides significantly more range and manoeuvrability," a Lockheed Martin spokesperson told Jane's .

    General Naval Warfare News/Technology thread.

    The third and final Zumwalt (USS Lyndon B Johnson) was launched. Unlike the Zumwalt and Michael Monsoor, the Lyndon Johnson doesn't have the 155mm guns.
  8. By the way Walter, if Flynn was a legitimate national security threat...why was the incoming administration not informed? Wouldn't you think his security clearances would be suspended at a bare minimum? Was the Steele dossier evidence of a legitimate national security threat, or was it unverified opposition research by a political adversary?
  9. You can't honestly answer that question without undercutting your position.
  10. It is very normal for the FBI to use political campaign slander as justification for a FISA warrant to spy on a political candidate, for that spying to get leaked to the media, for the leak to turn into a justification to question incoming administration officials, for the agents conducting the questioning to lead the officials into believing it was a casual talk, for it to turn out the FBI official who made the decision to question administration officials himself was leaking to distract from personal issues and lying to investigators about it, that agents in charge had a political bias to "stop" the incoming president, and for the FBI to do everything it can to cover up their illicit activities. And it is very normal for presidential candidates to have 'charity' foundations that get tens of millions in foreign donations that suddenly stop when that candidate loses the election...
  11. I am not surprized you are downplaying government resources being used to target political adversaries. Wouldn't it be something if one of those people who were 'legally allowed to see it' was the one who feloniously leaked Flynn's call with the ambassador to the WaPo.

  13. We have an answer. https://breakingdefense.com/2018/12/army-bradley-brigade-will-get-israeli-anti-missile-system-iron-fist/ The US Army is going for Iron Fist and the market survey was worded specifically for it.
