#Bellicose #nations that continue to invest in non-productive activities such as buying conventional and unconventional #military #weapons, and technologies, do so at the peril of #Human #Development and Progress, are manifest from their poor performances in the #TokyoOlympics
Social accounting indicators such as health care, social care, medical provisions, insurance social risk transferences, old-age benefits, unemployment welfare benefits, education, public transportation, etc are used to measure human development and quality of life.
Why smaller nations tend to win more medals compared to opulent larger countries with wealth and manpower, is a subject that is being debated by sociologists and evolutionary biologists.
Its a complex topic

Take some time to appreciate the tremendous courage shown by these doctors. They're risking their careers and more to speak out against the narrative for you.
Absolute insanity to take those risks with your kids.
If you've already had COVID, the shot puts you at greater risk for complications and can destroy your naturally created antibodies. Not only that, It's depletes your neutral antibodies to levels 5-6x lower than before the vaxx. What happens the next time you get sick?

In 2013 I was still in uniform when @SenGillibrand held the 1st Senate hearing on #sexualassault in the #military in almost a decade as then Chairwoman of the Armed Services Subcmittee on Personnel

8 yrs later her own colleagues could continue to impede progress

In that time the Air Force Basic Training Sex Crime Scandal was a big national crisis.

43 women publicly alleged they were victimized by 17 accused male military instructors during & after basic military training beginning in 2009. Offenses ranged from abuse of power to rape. ImageImage
It’s easy to forget but 2013 was a historic year in our long time battle against military sexual violence.

Remember the senior officer who ran the Air Force's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office arrested & charged w sexual battery at DC bar?…

#Spies steal secrets. Sometimes, those secrets must be carefully studied and analyzed by experts to turn them into products useful to policymakers.
The spies,talking about, here worked for the #mossad.The expert who painstakingly transformed secrets collected into actionable intelligence is David Albright&the policymaker who should be revising his policies in response to a clearer picture of reality is President Joe Biden.
The story begins on a cold night in January 2018, when Israeli agents stealthily broke into a warehouse in southern #Tehran where Iran’s rulers had stored an archive of their #nuclear weapons program.

#Military emissions make a significant contribution to #ClimateChange, our new blog explores why this is and what needs to change. A lack of transparency means we don't know how large their contribution is but we do have some stats⬇️… #ClimateAction 1/6
Global military expenditure rose to almost US$2 trillion in 2020, this is important for military emissions because a large proportion are indirect and come through supply chains and lifecycle costs. Here's a chart. It's really not all about emissions from engines. 2/6
Which isn't to say that engines don't matter. As of 2021 the global #military aircraft fleet is 53,563, which is double the projected civilian fleet (23,715). But because the military don't report where they fly and how much fuel they use we don't know what it contributes. 3/6

War, continuation of policy through other means,

(Bonaparte, Clausewitz & Jomini)

#Strategy ImageImageImageImage
Clausewitz was very much influenced by the Prussian philosopher Immanuel Kant ergo his theory regarding 'Total or Absolute War' was very much a philosophical epistemological discourse paving way for future students of warfare to interpret the theories in as per their own time! ImageImage
Clausewitz believed in the idea of Absolute war implying that once it was started by 'Politik' (Policies / Politics) wrt 'Mitigating factors' then as a violent chain reaction manifesting over reality it wont stop until everything perished or resources fueling the war depleted. ImageImage

I have been a dedicated INDEPENDENT #StopTPP #activists for almost 10 yrs. I started studying it, after I admired #AaronSwartz's work to #StopSOPA--after he passed away, I felt incensed govt tried to reinsert #SOPA into #TPP (now called #CPTPP). #StopCPTPP…
I ended up having very bad experiences, not really understanding why...for years. I knew people were following me & hassling me, but I did not know who or why...I had no idea about govt. targeting programs, at the time.


I was following #KimDotcom's case, because he had been attacked, allegedly, for #SOPA--which never passed in USA"s Congress, due to #AaronSwartz's work...copyright infringement is NOT criminal Dotcom's case was interesting to me.

In an early post, we briefly touched upon high velocity, shallow arc and lower velocity, higher arc guns.

While discussions on muzzle velocity are typically examined from a range, accuracy, or penetration angle, one other factor existed that played an equal if not larger role.
This factor is barrel wear. Something that influenced naval design for several navies.

The forces required to force a heavy naval shell through a barrel are tremendous. The intense heat and pressure places a great deal of strain on the barrel
Each shell that is forced down the barrel strips a tiny bit of the barrel along with it. This damage is typically towards the breech of the gun, concentrated towards the start of the rifling. However, successive shots allow the damage to extend further down the barrel..

Tomorrow, trial against German #army 1st lieutenant Franco A. will start. He is charged with plotting a false flag extreme right #terrorist attack. It is one of the strangest and most shocking cases involving active duty #military personnel and far right terrorism. Short thread.
Before zooming in on this case, here is a background reader on the history of far right #extremism and the #military in Germany, the UK, the US, and Canada we wrote for .@ICCT_TheHague in September 2019:
Franco A. was arrested February 3, 2017 at Vienna airport by Austrian authorities while trying to retrieve a gun he had hidden there earlier. He was an active duty 1st lieutenant in the German army then. He was let go. However, Austrians informed German military intelligence.

The importance of Canadian military intelligence during the Second World War. ⬇️⬇️

1/9 The years between the world wars were lean ones for military intelligence. The Corps of Guides units were converted into cyclist companies, but lost their appeal and were disbanded in 1929.
2/9 In 1932, intelligence staffs from the @CanadianArmy and @RCAF_ARC were amalgamated.

A small @RoyalCanNavy intelligence staff was retained but was still encumbered with other staff responsibilities.…
#History #Military #SecondWorldWar #WWII #Canada
3/9 When 🇨🇦 mobilized in Sept 1939, the small intelligence structures across all three services were rapidly developed. The Army had a tremendous demand for trained intelligence specialists, which culminated in the creation of the Canadian Intelligence Corps(C Int C) in Oct 1942.

Unit 910 - #Hezbollah's Foreign Operations Unit.
#Unit910 is one of Hezbollah's elite & secretive units. It is headed by Talal Hamya (طلال حميّة), & is the long & strategic arm of Hezbollah & #Iran.
The purpose of this unit is to deter the West, including
🇮🇱Israel. 1
The one who headed it in the past was Imad Mourniyeh. The Unit 910 has sub-units - administrative & operational. It is confidential in relation to all #Hezbollah units. 910 has a limited number of activists, including Lebanese Shiites whose families are not from Lebanon. 2
And some have foreign passports that allow them to move freely around the world, covert by scenarios of trade or tourism. They go on missions without the knowledge of their family. What their family knows is that they are going on a trip with friends. 3
