Trump wants Maduro assassinated?
A Hellfire missile as he's driving from one location to another, from a drone the Venezuelan military can't detect, is pretty much how he'd do it. Just like Solemani.
If Trump wanted it, he could do it and he'd gleefully take credit for it...
Trump doesn't play timid little games and attempt coy denials.
China is claiming the US is under-estimating their current arsenal?
I'm pretty sure the publication of the 'estimate' was intended to demonstrate definitively, that the US is currently aware of not only the count but also the location of every ONE OF THEM.
It was a warning that the PLA can't move, ready or launch a single one without the US KNOWING well in advance.
Huber wasn't handling the weapon well, according to the complaint?
On his back and in retreat he managed to shoot three convicted felons, one of whom was a child rapist, a felon brandishing an illegal handgun, and someone trying to cave his head in with a skateboard. No one else was shot.
That's exceedingly effective handling of a firearm.
Well, I'm sure it will prove at least as capable as the S-400 systems which the F-35s seem to constantly evade.
BTW- High altitude maneuverability is one thing but guidance and sensor telemetry require either secure targeting telemetry feeds (from ground stations) or sensors and independent guidance (onboard) which gobbles payload. I'm guessing that Russia hasn't actually come close to cracking those 'limitations' yet.
I 'wonder' how much of Huawei's chip technology imports were 'dual use'? How much of that technology served as components for Chinese military platforms?
Back just for the USPS...?
Meh. Pretty sure the Reps in the Senate and the President aren't going to entertain that nonsense.
Another China cheerleader article in ZH?
Trust their claims without verification. Ignore evidence to the contrary. Assume capabilities never demonstrated. Presume equivalence without evidence.
Yikes. It's bone-chilling.
Chip manufacturing equipment and chip supplies have ALREADY been cut off to China. Huawei's Kirin chip-sets have already stopped and they have been left with consumer models of significant inferiority.
The Chinese military which also relied upon those same chip suppliers are also facing a bind in their supply chain as well.
If facebook/ Twitter/ Google/ Microsoft gets cut out of market access in China, then maybe picking a direct fight with Trump wasn't actually a very smart idea. Asking him for consideration now is going to be a 'tough ask'...
Old Brands. Hopelessly inferior technology in multiple categories. They aren't catching up. The only question remaining is 'How long can they delay the inevitable'?
That's why they're all 'awake'. They face an existential threat.
Obviously he's scrambling to catch up as Elon must have informed Amazon that they'll be blocked from Starlink.
Closing the capability and deployment gap will require billions, at least, if he can get the right people, soon enough to matter.
