And he becomes death.
An office mate worried about China’s rhetoric to USA on the West Philippine Sea or the South China Sea. And I thought of Dr. Oppenheimer for his contribution of harnessing the power of the atom. They thought Germany was creating the bomb and recent documentaries conclude Hitler was not making one. Still, it was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki but first blew in a desert as Project “Trinity”.
Nations posses such weapon are responsible for keeping the keys out of reach from fanatics. Any unscheduled launch of rockets to the sky are always a hair raising drill for silo operators whether it is an exercise or the real thing.
So I hope the Russian and Chinese love their children too.
See my deviantart post too.
2016 was a great year and its one of the years I will treasure. It’s surviving the hardship and struggles that really counts not the easy life that every one aims in a journey.
Things to remember in life.
A good name is better than riches.
Be a blessing to others.
Be nameless in doing good.
And keep your privacy and have a strong password at all times.
Still doing sketches only on Deviantart right now.
I’ll still post some drawing here so, I’ll update from time to time especially if its technology related with drawings of course.
Happy New Year and always enjoy 😀
Selfies can kill. Photos near cliffs, humble brags or simply showing off your luxuries and nude photos that leads to Sextortion. The latest Kardashian incident is a no brainer. Do you have to be an open book like celebrities? You won’t earn money or be famous. But you’re inviting criminal.
Things to do with your internet social activity.
- Turn off GPS while taking photos
- Do not take video tour of your house.
- Do not post your possession like jewelry, cars, location of your home, address of kid’s school, where you hang out.
- Just DO NOT DO the above.
Your privacy is very important. It may save your life.
Uzi, Galil, Desert Eagle, F21 kfir. Familiar house hold names from Israel. But the Merkava is the weapon that scares the nuts and bolts of tankers around the world. The latest model M4 would make any advance ATGM (anti tank guided missile) deflect like a rock if its passes the Rafael defense system that acts like a mini IronDome.
Its Arab neighbor still have a field day from previous defeats. Egypt, Jordan and Saudi have a non-aggressive posture with Tel Aviv but Syria and Iran pose a threat to the existence of Zion.
Israel have the best tank gunnery in the world repelling massive attack by Syria and Egypt armor in wars of 1967 and 1973. When the world deny them of buying weapons, they made their own. The Merkava born from the success of British tank Chieftain. Its debut fight Lebanon, 1982 against Russian tanks. Rounds from T62 won’t penetrate its thick armor. If its not knocking other tanks, it doubles as an armored carrier. Definitely, a general’s wonder weapon.
But it did meet its match when Hezbollah guerrillas were armed with the Russian Kornet ATGM but that did not slow the tank down.
Under President Duterte, the Philippines is seeking Israel weapons, I hope the Merkava would be a top priority list. The tank is very roomy, it could also transport wounded soldiers on the battlefield. Its armored troop carrier version is the Namer is also an excellent choice.
I do hope this time, the Philippine AFP modernization would materialize. Its 30 years late (since the power grab People Power of 1986) but better late than never.
JSDF/Japan Self Defense Force is the combine Army, Air Force and Navy of Japan yet it is simply called JSDF. They do not refer planes under the Japan Air Force nor the gray ships as Japanese navy. You have to insert the “self-defence” in its branches ( ground self defence, air self defense, maritime self defense). Whats the catch? The USA. After WorldWar 2, the US, the victor both Europe and Asia, made a treaty preventing Japan from creating a revival of Japanese might.
But in the 1980s, its Self Defense force is bigger than the United Kingdom. Its newest and biggest ship, the Izumo and Hyuga class Helicopter Destroyer (the biggest destroyer that looks like an aircraft carrier) is almost as big as the British fleets Queen Elizabeth and qualified for VSTOL jets like the F35
But Japan is the closest force that stand against China. Although Japan does not possess any nuclear weapon, it could upgrade its inventory in a few months.
Japan is also helping the Philippines in its maritime problem with China and gave two patrol ships to the Phil Navy and would also design future vessels. These scary bully tactic of China is really a security problem in the region especially for the Philippines who have no naval power to deter China.
Thank you Japan, may you keep the balance of power in Asia. Once you were an enemy now you are a friend and deterrent to an ambitious dragon.
