Patrick Shanahan to officially become new Defense Secretary

“Based upon his outstanding service to the Country and his demonstrated ability to lead, President Drumpf intends to nominate Patrick M. Shanahan to be the Secretary of Defense,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a Thursday statement. “Acting Secretary Shanahan has proven over the last several months that he is beyond qualified to lead the Department of Defense, and he will continue to do an excellent job.”

The reason Drumpf likes Shanahan, though, may come down to one very simple thing: He’s deferential. During a Cabinet meeting on January 2, for example, Shanahan sat stoically next to Drumpf as the president slammed Mattis for keeping America’s military involved in conflicts overseas, particularly in Afghanistan.

Possibly not the best idea...


If your Navy has a severe problem of aging, obsolete warships reaching (or exceeding) the end of their serviceable life, and you are dependent upon another country for large turbine engines to power the new ships you're building to replace them, starting a war with that country just might not be your smartest strategic move ever.
Russia’s naval decline isn’t just a matter of fewer warships but a decline of industry and infrastructure. Russia can’t even build large engines for warships: as Reuters points out, several Russian warships under construction are currently sitting high and dry because they are waiting on gas turbine engines ordered from Ukraine, which was made a bit more complicated after Russia invaded the place. The war between the two countries means it could be years before those ships can hit the water. In late 2018 the Japanese-built floating dry dock PD-50 sank as the Admiral Kuznetsov departed it, leaving Russia without a place to work on large warships.
The short version: Not only can... show more

So you have a hammer ... er, an airplane.


What do you do when you have an expensive, over-budget, behind-schedule airplane that was designed to do half a dozen different jobs but doesn't so far appear to actually be able do any of them well?

Well, if you're the Pentagon, obviously you come up with another job for it. The latest idea is to use the F-35 to intercept ballistic missiles in their boost phase.

Now, let's talk about this a bit. The fundamental idea isn't completely loony, at first sight. But the devil is in the details. So let's look at the details.

The US actually has an air-launched anti-satellite weapon, the ASM-135 ASAT, and the USAF has successfully tested it against satellites in low Earth orbit. It is a weapon assembled from a modified Boeing AGM-69 Short Range Attack Missile as a first stage, an LTV Aerospace Altair 3 as a second stage, and a kinetic-kill third stage called the Miniature Homing... show more
