In “Largest-Ever” Military Drill, US Orders 16,000 Troops, 230 Jets To Simulate War With North Korea

As part of “Vigilant Ace”, US and South Korean forces will be rehearsing for a full-scale war with North Korea, with Yonhap noting that “allies plan to stage simulated attacks on mock North Korean nuclear and missile targets.”

Despite Pyongyang’s harsh rhetoric, US commanders have downplayed the drill – claiming it is “regular” and not a direct response to North Korea.

According to the WSJ, at least 230 US and Southg Korean warplanes will take part, alongside 12,000 US troops from the Air Force, Marines and Navy and airmen with another 4,000 expected to represent Seoul.” The drill, which lasts from December 4 until December 8, will see aircraft flying over eight airbases across the Korean Peninsula.

‘Orwellian nightmare’: German Interior Minister drafts law to spy on all digital devices – report

If signed into law, de Maiziere’s proposal would allow German security services to spy on any device connected to the internet. Tech companies would be compelled to provide the state with backdoor access to most digital consumer devices, including private tablets, computers and even televisions and cars. However, German authorities would need the authorization of a judge before tapping into a compromised consumer device.

Ontario will miss its 2020 electric-vehicle target, experts say

The Liberal government has been encouraging electric vehicle sales by doling out $75 million in rebates to vehicle owners, offering various other incentives and programs, installing a network of charging stations and spending $1 million to open an electric vehicle education centre.

SAS could change selection test to make it easier for female recruits

Soldiers hoping to join the Special Air Service and its sister regiment, the Special Boat Service (SBS), currently have to pass an initial physical test, which involves carrying heavy rucksacks over a series of long marches across mountainous terrain.

But according to reports, the SAS is considering allowing female recruits to carry lighter loads and giving them more time to complete the test.

The suggestion comes after the government said it wanted to see all close combat units in the British military open to women by 2019.

“Green energy” fairy tale turning into a nightmare for Canada

Once upon a time in a northern dominion called Canada, a thriving oil industry provided fuel for vehicles, trains and airplanes.

    ‘MSNBC host Joy Reid has apologized after blog posts emerged in which she used homophobic remarks and anti-gay jokes to mock former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.

    Yeah, let’s make owning guns legally even more restrictive to make sure the bad guys don’t buy guns. /s Just because Montreal, Toronto, Southern ON, Vancouver/ Surrey area have turned their cities into unsafe multi-cult shitholes why does the rest of Canada have to be affected by their stupidity.
    Meanwhile, illegal drugs and legal pot are okay in Canada and Ottawa high schools and elementary schools are now providing druggie overdose kits.
