Star Wars Revisited: One More Nightmare From Trump
Donald Trump and his “war cabinet” have struck again.  In the wake of record defense spending; the creation of a Space Force that would violate the Outer Space Treaty agreed to fifty years ago; the abrogation of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty from thirty years ago; and the chaos of random decision making for use of force, the Trump administration is returning to the madness of President Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” idea with costly and ineffective ideas regarding missile-defense technologies.

Air Weapons: Fast, Cheap And Versatile
In late 2018 Russia announced that it had flight tested a new Kh-47M2 (Kinzhal) hypersonic air launched missile from a 42 ton MiG-31BM fighter. There are apparently only about six MiG-31BMs modified to carry this missile and only one can be carried at a time. The Tu-22 bomber was tested with the Kinzhal in 2017, apparently successfully. The Tu-22M3M can carry up to four Kinzhals, which have a range of 3,000 kilometers when launched from high altitude (12,500 meters/40,000 feet).
