Hamas Assault Shows Terrorists Can’t be Managed

The main lesson for Israel from the hideous Hamas attacks suffered over the weekend is a simple one: Terrorists can’t be managed. For decades, Israel worked with Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA) by combining incentives on the one hand with controlled military responses on the other. Major attacks, including […]

The US and Taiwan have strong incentive for stronger industrial cooperation

An Industrial Tripwire Approach for Saving Taiwan

The US has strategic interests in Taiwan, in part because of its geopolitical location in the center of the First Island Chain; in part because it is a bulwark against a potentially expansionist China, a country with multiple territorial claims over many islands in the region that belong to other

US Air Force in a Big Lie about the A-10

While the US Air Force publicly insists it wants to get rid of the A-10 “Warthog” close air support fighters, it has just deployed a squadron to the Middle East. The deployed fighters each can carry 16 GBU-39B small-diameter bombs (four per bomb rack). The A-10 also has an ultra-powerful 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger gun that rapidly fires depleted

If a Chinese Spy Balloon Flew over Israel

Consider this: if China sent one of its high-tech surveillance balloons over Israel, what would happen? The answer: Israel would have sounded air raid sirens telling its citizens to go into shelters. It would then fire an air defense missile to take the balloon down. No hand-wringing. No waiting. No lies. Just eliminate the threat.

About that ROTAX Engine in Iranian Drones

The Jerusalem Post features an article on January 13 that is important in calling attention to the fact that Rotax engines are in Iranian drones, and absurdly wrong on key points. The article is wrong on the company ownership of ROTAX and completely misleading on the question of how the engines got

U.S. Security at Risk as China Exploits American Technology

The U.S. Department of Defense has published its 2022 version of “Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China.” But the Pentagon fails to explain how American technology is aiding and abetting China’s increasingly powerful and technologically advanced military and makes no useful suggestions as to how the
