For those who think the real fun starts at 20mm.

 

A good friend of mine in the Command community on the supposed waste of taxpayer money that was the F-4 Phantom:

City fight.

 

East Ukrainian militia do it right (tank + APC duet during extermination of Kievan troops in Debaltsevo pocket).

 

Wrong tactics. Syrians massively use tanks in city fights because of infantry cowardice.

 

Meanwhile in ISIS. Abrams exploded after Kornet frontal hit.

This image has meaning to me; in a schizophrenic episode I had, Xi and Un were in a relationship just like this...

The initial report said they were Marines, though I suppose this makes it even more humiliating for Dae'esh; they couldn't hold their own against an enlisted man from the cushiest service and a reservist.

we got a friend, an older gentleman, who were an airman during the early 60s.  was stationed at nouasseur air base and was a radio operator.  the thing is, he never actual did anything with radios.  nope, he was part o' the camp's football team and he were a lifeguard.   our friend's military service were spent in casablanca, playing ball and swimming. am not sure why, but we never had considered that the military needs lifeguards.  go figure.

 

HA! Good Fun!

If anything, Airman Stone certainly put his training as a medical technician (medic), football player, and jiu-jitsu practitioner all to good use.

 

Hell, he probably saved the dude's life who got hit in the neck when he immediately applied first aid after subduing the gunman.

BREAKING NEWS! China PLA troops head to North Korea (DPRK) border as North-South tensions mount
The People's Liberation Army has sent troops to China's border with North Korea as escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula have pushed North and South to the brink of possible war.
The Hong Kong-based Oriental Daily reported Saturday that internet users have been uploading photos of what appear to be PLA armored vehicles and tanks passing through the streets of Yanji, the seat of the Yanbian Korean autonomous prefecture in eastern Jilin province. The city, considered a key transport and trade hub between China and the DPRK, is less than 30 kilometers from the 1,400-kilometer border.
The military deployment is believed to reflect how seriously Beijing considers the the current standoff between North and South Korea

Meanwhile in Far East

 

 

Russia and China have started the second phase of joint naval exercises from August 20-28 under the name of “Joint-Sea 2015 (II).”
The exercises will be held in Peter the Great Bay, near the Russian Far Eastern city of Vladivostok and in the Sea of Japan.
The main subject of the exercises will be “working out the joint protection of the sea and joint amphibious operations.” In light of the event there will also be open and vibrant cultural and sports activities to promote exchanges between the military vessels of the two countries.
Taking part in the drills from both sides are 23 warships, 2 submarines, 20 aircraft, 15 aircrafts, 8 helicopters, more than 400 marines and 40 armored vehicles.
This is the fourth joint naval drills between Russia and China. The drills “Joint-Sea 2015” have distinct features such as the fact that these drills will last for 10 days, making them the lengthiest exercises in the past 4 years.

Yeah, I guess they're the only ones with problems in the Far East... oh, wait.*
