    Kabul: Imam among 12 worshippers killed in Afghanistan mosque bombing during Friday prayers

    All this time in country, and ISAF can’t figure out the who’s who of Daesh? Biden is right, the longer the US and ISAF is there the worse it gets. Better to minimize this mess metastasizing any further; best to cut the cord and let the chips fall where they may. At least then we’ll see who’s who...

    India’s Covid crisis augurs lost economic decade

    India doesn’t have many decades left before it squanders its demographic dividend. The population of Children have peaked. Total fertility is already at 2.1/2.2 and probably continuing to fall. The average age in Indian is already 28/29, and will only continue to increase. India probably only...

    Maldives was a Bollywood bolthole during India's second wave. Now wealthy Indians are shut out

    The wealthy always flee a pandemic (see the records from the Black Death of the 1300s), half of New York’s rich are in either the Hamptons or Florida. To paraphrase Thucydides; The Rich do what they can and the poor suffer what they must.

    cant say why they targeted him, it would be speculation. Either way, well only know if these scum are caught, by whomever.

    Kabul: Imam among 12 worshippers killed in Afghanistan mosque bombing during Friday prayers

    According to Afghan media, Daesh killed the last prominent Imam, tends to reason they will probably try to keep on killing unless they are stopped. This doesn’t seem to fit the pattern of the Taliban; attacks during a ceasefire, but seems perfectly like a way to frame them by spoilers. First the...

    Congrats on being one of only two countries that have accomplished this feat. A healthy competition between the two major space fairing powers will hopefully speed up human development to the benefit of all of humanity.

    JF-17 Block-3 -- Updates, News & Discussion

    Considering the outreach by the Russians, we should be trying to get ToT for the RD-93MA to build it under license. It will create a baseline engine capability, so that we are able to always field fighters. Even if, eventually, we pick the WS-19 (probably by 2030 at the earliest) to power future...

    JF-17 Block-3 -- Updates, News & Discussion

    Almost, I think it’s 98kn max thrust. But we have to consider even more the dry thrust and making the JF-17 have a greater than 1.0 TWR in a combat load out; 4/6 BVR and 2/4 WVR, and redesign that increases internal fuel, so we don’t have the issue of the additional drag caused by the drop...

    Afghan NSA spit venom against Pakistan from official Twitter handle of NSC Afghanistan - 2021

    The (Kingdom of) Afghanistan of 1947 doesn’t exist anymore, the King is dead and the pretender to the throne is Not coming back, AFAIK (to put it bluntly). It’s been an idea more than a state for at least the past 42 years if not longer. Finding a new relationship with each and every tribe or...

    JF-17 Block-3 -- Updates, News & Discussion

    Your right, there is room to grow for JF-17 design especially if a higher powered engine is made available. If one day the WS-19 engine is allowed to be exported (max thrust 25,000 lb or approx. 110kn) it would be in the same thrust range as our Block 15 F-16s. It give room for the design to...

    Afghan NSA spit venom against Pakistan from official Twitter handle of NSC Afghanistan - 2021

    He’s a graphic designer for websites. Not that there’s any thing wrong with that, but probably not the right experience/training for the job of NSA. I think he got the job because he worked on Ghani’s 2013 campaign and showed loyalty to Ghani.

    It’s an uphill climb for a health official when the top leadership is sabotaging your efforts through incompetence. We saw that with Dr Fauci and Trump.
