Syria's slide towards civil war

The BBC's Paul Wood has spent harrowing days under fire in the Baba Amr area of Homs, which has been subjected to a relentless artillery barrage by government troops.

He has seen evidence of vicious sectarian hatreds and killings by both government militias and the armed opposition.

S Korea holds military drills despite North's threats

http://www.bbc.co.uk...d-asia-17093118

South Korea has held live fire military drills from islands near disputed sea borders with the North despite threats of attack.

The drills, which North Korea has called "premeditated military provocation", lasted two hours.

There was no reported action from Pyongyang, which warned on Sunday that it will retaliate for any attacks.

The drills took place in an area where four South Koreans were killed in 2010 in a North Korean artillery attack.

Russians developed new tank, well upgraded existing T-90 (T-72B) to what I could only describe as an leap forward in Russian Armor Design. New design T90MS Tagil resembles T-90S upfront but side and back of the tank appear to be more western in design concept. Russians claim that ammunition storage has been placed in separate compartment away from the crew. Traditionally Russia tank designs tended to have ammunition stored inside crew compartment, major weakness in all Russian tank designs. I am thoroughly impressed with new design.

It's dangerous to be right, when your government is wrong.
They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Navy railgun with 220 mile range closer to reality

http://www.cbsnews.c...ain;contentBody

Imagine a Naval gun so powerful it can shoot a 5-inch projectile up to 220 miles, yet requires no explosives to fire.

That's the Navy's futuristic electromagnetic railgun, a project that could be deployed on the service's ships by 2025, and which is now a little bit closer to reality with the signing of a deal with Raytheon for the development of what's known as the pulse-forming network.
