    Iranian officials continue to threaten the United States, following the Trump administration’s announcement of new sanctions against the Islamic Republic. On Monday, Iran’s Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri said that the “ultimate losers” are those who result to the language of force in dealing with Iran. Speaking upon his arrival at the country’s Abadan airport and quoted by the IRNA news agency, Jahangiri said Iran is never intimidated by threats, adding that governments or individuals who address Iran with the language of force will be the final losers. “The Islamic Republic of Iran always welcomes interaction but those rude who employ...

    US Strategic Command systems detected a failed North Korean ballistic missile launch Saturday evening near the northwestern city of Kusong, the Pentagon said. "We strongly condemn this and North Korea's other recent missile tests, which violate UN Security Council resolutions explicitly prohibiting North Korea's launches using ballistic missile technology," Pentagon spokesman Gary Ross said in a statement. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the missile launch from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America. Washington called on Pyongyang to "refrain from actions that further raise tensions in the region," Ross said.

    North Korea fired two ballistic missiles Thursday morning, a South Korean military official said, in the latest controversial move amid U.S.-South Korean military drills that have angered the rogue state. The two missiles flew about 310 miles at about 5:20 a.m. (3:20 p.m. Wednesday ET) and were fired from North Korea's northern shore, the military official said. Analysts said they were Scud-type missiles. The apparent launch comes after heated rhetoric from North Korea in recent days that has included threats of a preemptive nuclear strike.

The Missile Defense Agency said Monday the destroyer USS John Paul Jones tested the technology during a series of flight tests off the Hawaiian island of Kauai over the past week. Raytheon Missile Systems spokeswoman Heather Uberuaga says the tests used a modified version of the SM-6 missile the Navy already uses.

  • White House: Iranian Ballistic Missile Test Not a Deal Killer

    The White House says that an Iranian ballistic missile test would not invalidate a recently signed nuclear accord meant to temporarily halt some of Iran’s most controversial nuclear work. The White House clarified its stance just days before Iran is scheduled to launch another ballistic missile some 75 miles into the atmosphere. The statement contradicts recent remarks indicating that such a test would in fact violate and nullify the weeks-old agreement, which provides Iran with some $7 billion in relief from economic sanctions in exchange for a partial six-month freeze of its uranium enrichment program.

    JERUSALEM, Israel -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran is accelerating efforts to produce weapons-grade uranium for making nuclear bombs. Speaking with a delegation of U.S. congressmen, led by Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., Netanyahu said Iran's "quest toward the achievement of atomic weapons not only continues, it continues unabated. It's actually accelerated." "I know that some place their hopes on Iran's new president. He knows how to exploit this," Netanyahu said. "And yesterday he called for more talks." "Of course he wants more talks. He wants to talk and talk and talk. And while everybody is busy talking to...

    Moving a step closer to completing its nuclear triad, India today successfully test-fired a ballistic missile, wit a strike range of around 1500 kilometres, from an underwater platform in Bay of Bengal.

  • Marines' Ballistic Underwear Must Also Be Comfy

    Kevlar underwear can protect U.S. Marines against blast fragments flying like bullets through the air, but it lacks the comfort of simple cotton undies or silky unmentionables. Now the U.S. military has begun searching for better alternatives that prevent chafing as well as battle wounds. The U.S. Marine Corps sees comfortable undergarments as being equally important to ballistic protection, according to a new request for information aimed at U.S. manufacturers. That means any new underwear fabric must not only shield private parts against burns and tiny fragments traveling at 650 feet per second — the speed of some bullets —...

    Any Chinese move to take over Taiwan would trigger a confrontation with the U.S. Navy and Air Force. Is the U.S. prepared to counter this growing threat? August 9, 2015 - 0400 Hours The war for Taiwan starts in the early morning. There are no naval bombardments or waves of bombers: That's how wars in the Pacific were fought 70 years ago. Instead, 1200 cruise and ballistic missiles rise from heavy vehicles on the Chinese mainland. Taiwan's modest missile defense network—a scattered deployment of I-Hawk and Patriot interceptors—slams into dozens of incoming warheads. It's a futile gesture. The mass raid...
