The Chinese Military Is a Paper Dragon

  The Chinese Military Is a Paper Dragon

 

The original article is Published in War is Boring

Some Points from there 

Corruption, bad neighbors, inflation and a demographic time bomb—these are just a few of Beijing’s woes

But they’re wrong. Even after decades of expensive rearmament, China is a paper dragon—a version of what Mao Zedong wrongly claimed the United States was … in 1956.

Yes, the People’s Liberation Army is slowly becoming more technologically advanced. But that doesn’t mean Beijing can mobilize its armed forces for global missions. Unlike the world’s main expeditionary powers—the United States and the U.K., to name two—China is surrounded by potential enemies.

China’s other neighbors are weak or failed states, such as Pakistan and North Korea. Their instability—or their outright collapse—could have serious security repercussions for China, and help explain why Beijing lavishes funds on its armed forces.


“China’s land borders have never been more secure than they are today,” As M. Taylor Fravel, an associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, told War is Boring

 Vietnam fought China in 1979 and killed 9,000 People’s Liberation Army troops in a single month. Japan’s occupation of China in the 1930s and ’40s killed millions of Chinese. India fought China as recently as 1962. China and Russia waged a short, undeclared war in 1969.

China’s list of allies in the Pacific, on the other hand, is a short one. Russia. Globally, China’s allies include Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Venezuela and the countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization—Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. All are despotic or near-despotic states, many are unstable and many have long records of human rights abuses.

Counter Russian Ballistc Missiles

  How to Counter the Russian Ballistic Missiles 

 

 

 

The Only threat that the US Facing today is the Ballistic Missiles Varying from Theater Ballistic Missiles ranges upto 300 KM to the Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles with Multiple warheads in Single ICBM .It's been a 50-50 Chances to Intercept those Missiles.The US Studied designed to counter the BM in the early 80's .Till Now they have Four Different Systems to Counter the Russian Ballistic Missiles .Since now only the Russian made SCUD Missiles are Intercepted by the US made Patriot ABM stationed in KSA during the Operation Iraqi Freedom. Currently the US Had Four Different Ballistic Missile Defence Systems The PAC 3 ,THAAD , AEGIS , GMD 

PAC 3 Patriot Advanced Capability





 PAC 3 is an Advanced Version of Patriot Ballistic Missile System .Each launcher having array of 4x4 Canisters .some Three or Four such systems are easy to destroy any incoming ballistic missiles at the Hit chance of 50-50. the PAC 3 is not only a Ballistic Missile Interceptor It can act as a Long range Surface to Air Missile too can engage the Fighter Jets and Incoming Cruise Missiles .the PAC 3 is stationed in Poland near to the Russian Border .also several other Baltic Nation uses the PAC 3 to saves their Sky to enemy Aggressors .But the truth is most of  the PAC 3 operating countries are in NATO ..if one NATO Country under Attack all of them come to rescue the Member Nation .The PAC 3 Engagement rate upto 35 KM against the BM at the altitude of 23 KM 

THAAD Terminal High Altitude Area Defense

 

 

THAAD is designed to kill Short to Medium range Ballistic missiles .It uses the Kinetic energy to destroy the Enemy BM Hence It doesn't Have Warhead .It can range upto 200 KM and Destroy the Enemy Missile at 150 KM altitude .It shows Good Test Results after being upgraded by the Lockeed after 2000 .The US Stationed the THAAD only it's mainland to defend from enemy BM's .althogh the OMAN is the Only country Operating the THAAD after the US 

Aegis Combat System
Array of SM 3 Missiles abroad a Arleigh Burke   

         Where all other Systems are Launched from the Land Based Systems to Defeat Enemy BM . The Aegis System based on the Ships .where US only alone Operating more than 75+ Ships ..from JMSDF and The Aussies are the Other Major Operator of Aegis Equipped Destroyer .The Aegis System uses the SM 3 or the Standard missile 3 developed by the Raytheon and Aerojet .This one was a Good System in the Entire US BMD system can engage targets upto 2500 KM away and at the altitude of Nearly 500 KM's .The US also has Plans to develop a Land Based SM 3 missile System to station in Poland and Romania to Quickly Defeat any Kind of ICBM's from the Russian Federation. There were several countries have such systems in their Ships to Protect their mainland from Enemy BM.     

 

 GMD Ground-Based Midcourse Defense 

 A mystery US ground based BMD stationed in Alaska and California ..There were Not much more Details and Specifications available  .through the interceptor Tests the GMD proved only 50% of Successful intercepts. It has higher altitude and Longer distance to kill the ICBM's .US has nearly 300 Operational GMD's as of 2012 and increase further in future .


Conclusion

These systems are all to destroy the BM launched from Enemy lands such as Russia DPRK Iran and China .There were 50-50 Chances to Kill the BM ..may be It destroyed in the Air otherwise Fall in the earth Kills Millions if it armed with WMD warheads .also there is nearly a Zero Chances of Defeating the Ballistic Missile after it Eject Multiple Warheads .

Captain Puruvir Das Refused to allow Chinese navy chief inside INS Shivalik's CIC

Captain Puruvir Das Refused to allow Chinese navy chief inside INS Shivalik's CIC


The Indian Navy had to politely refuse an unusual request from the Chinese navy chief, Wu Shengli, when he came aboard one of India’s frontline stealth warships, INS Shivalik this week and wanted to be shown the Combat Information Centre (CIC) or the all-important tactical room of the frigate.

It was learnt that Indian officers declined Wu’s request–considered a major break from established protocol followed by navies around the world -- saying since the ship was in the harbour, the room was locked and was not open to outsiders.

But Wu insisted on seeing the room and his aides attempted to convince the Indian side that the Chinese admiral, member of the powerful Central Military Commission, headed by President Xi Jinping, was particularly keen to see the CIC.

At this, Wu was told that he was welcome to visit the CIC during the exercise, which was slated for the following day in the Yellow Sea.

Wu did not agree.

Soon after Wu and the rest of the PLA navy team left the Indian ship.

The incident occurred on Tuesday evening when Wu, flanked by 15 top Admirals from People’s Liberation Army (PLA) navy, marched on to Shivalik, docked in the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao where it had arrived took part in a naval exercise to mark People’s Liberation Army (PLA) navy’s 65th year of founding.

Wu was on the ship to attend the reception thrown by the 300-odd crew of the ship.

As Captain Puruvir Das, Shivalik’s commander and the Indian ambassador Ashok K Kantha escorted Wu and his officers to tour the vessel, Wu said he wanted to see a specific room – the CIC; the CIC is considered to be the “nerve centre” of any warship, a room with its equipment that could give a senior navy officer a sharp insight into the ship’s strengths and capabilities.

The Indian side were taken unawares by Wu’s request as it is unheard of for the chief of a navy to make a request to see the CIC of another country’s warship; China itself is not known to throw open its warship CICs to military officers from other countries.

Sources said Wu broke away from protocol by asking to see the CIC. It was learnt that Captain Das explained to Wu that he was not in a position to take him to the CIC but would gladly give him a tour of the rest of the ship.

Chinese officers were given more access to the Shivalik this time than in 2012 when it had come to Shanghai.
Sources said the Chinese officers were very interested in Shivalik and was surprised that it had sailed all the way from Port Blair without any escort vessel or any other supervisory officer on board other than Captain Das himself.

Das refused to comment on the Wu Shengli incident and instead said that the exercise went off smoothly and that he was looking forward to engaging with the Chinese navy more frequently and deeply.

“This was the highest engagement with the Chinese navy we have had so far. But we do not want to stop at this and every year the level should go higher and higher,” Das told HT.

The RAF Typhoon and Russian Tu 95 Bear game

          The RAF Typhoon and Russian Tu 95 Bear game


Last Day the RAF England Dispatched two Typhoon F2 From RAF Leuchars in St Andrews, Fife .They Intercepted the Russian Bear Tu 95 along with two MiG 31

This one seems Bit Important where EU are announced Bunch sanction against Russia who interfered Ukraine mainland and Illegal annexation of Crimea  .

at the mean time A English Warship  HMS Dragon assigned to track a Russian warship Udaloy class DD Admiral Kulakov.


 Notes about Tu 95 

The Tupolev-95 (NATO designation Bear) is a Russian turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. The bomber, the fastest propeller aircraft ever built, is a famous symbol of the Cold War.

The Tu-95MS variant, equipped with the X-55 cruise missile, is the backbone of the modern Russian strategic bomber force. The plane is designed to destroy critical facilities in the rear of the enemy at any time and under any weather conditions.



And a Good Comments from  Reichswehr , Cthell  in MilitaryPhotos.net


 The Typhoon F2 pilots can now exchange photos and ''cold'' war stories with their Fathers and Grand fathers of T 95 Bear intercepts.
 and another good reply for the above Post


 Not to mention compare tail numbers to see if they've intercepted the same Bear.

Why Do Many Jews Write ‘G-d’ Like This



  Why Do Many Jews Write ‘G-d’ Like This


For some (but not all) Jews, it’s actually a sign of respect NOT to write G-d’s name in full. The concern is that the word may be written on something that will later be thrown away or otherwise destroyed. For example, you might print out a copy of an article that mentions G-d, but later toss it in the trash along with old coffee grounds. Not exactly a place redolent of majesty.




Jews do not casually write any Name of G-d. This practice does not come from the commandment not to take the Lord’s Name in vain, as many suppose. In Jewish thought, that commandment refers solely to oath-taking, and is a prohibition against swearing by G-d’s Name falsely or frivolously (the word normally translated as “in vain” literally means “for falsehood”).

Judaism does not prohibit writing the Name of G-d per se; it prohibits only erasing or defacing a Name of G-d. However, observant Jews avoid writing any Name of G-d casually because of the risk that the written Name might later be defaced, obliterated or destroyed accidentally or by one who does not know better.

The commandment not to erase or deface the name of G-d comes from Deut. 12:3. In that passage, the people are commanded that when they take over the promised land, they should destroy all things related to the idolatrous religions of that region, and should utterly destroy the names of the local deities. Immediately afterwards, we are commanded not to do the same to our G-d. From this, the rabbis inferred that we are commanded not to destroy any holy thing, and not to erase or deface a Name of G-d.

What Should a Women Do If She Trapped

What Should a Women Do If She Trapped


 It's being sad to share this info on my Blog ..where The man should Protect A Girl instead of Attempting Rape her ..But several cruel Humans all around this word and How can a Girl Save herself from such Kind of Threats

 
1) What should a woman do if she finds herself alone in the company of a strange male as she prepares to enter a lift in a high-rise apartment late at night?

Experts Say: Enter the lift. If you need to reach the 13th floor, press all the buttons up to your destination. No one will dare attack you in a lift that stops on every floor.

2) What to do if a stranger tries to attack you when you are alone in your house, run into the kitchen.

Experts Say: You alone know where the chili powder and turmeric are kept.And where the knives and plates are. All these can be turned into deadly weapons. If nothing else, start throwing plates and utensils all over.
Let them break. Scream. Remember that noise is the greatest enemy of a molester. He does not want to be caught.

3} Taking an Auto or Taxi at Night.

Experts Say: Before getting into an auto at night, note down its registration number. Then use the mobile to call your family or friend and pass on the details to them in the language the driver understands .Even if no one answers your call, pretend you are in a conversation. The driver now knows someone has his details and he will be in serious trouble if anything goes wrong. He is now bound to take you home safe and sound. A potential attacker is now your DE fact o protector!


4}What if the driver turns into a street he is not supposed to – and you feel you are entering a danger zone?

Experts Say: Use the handle of your purse or your stole (dupatta) to wrap around his neck and pull him back. Within seconds, he will feel choked and helpless. In case you don’t have a purse or stole just pull him back by his collar. The top button of his shirt would then do the same trick.


5} If you are stalked at night.



Expert Say: enter a shop or a house and explain your predicament. If it is night and shops are not open, go inside an ATM box. ATM centers always have security guards. They are also monitored by close circuit television.Fearing identification, no one will dare attack you.After all, being mentally alert is the greatest weapon you can ever have.

India Signals Ballistic Missile Defence Will Be In Place Soon


India Signals Ballistic Missile Defence Will Be In Place Soon










\









  

             India has signaled that it is ready to deploy a home-grown Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system in the near future with a successful testing of an advanced interceptor missile, prompting the defence scientists to claim a shield could be thrown over Delhi skies by 2014.

The big fireworks over the Bay of Bengal when India tested its experimental BMD system resulted in elation as the trial turned out to be "bang-on accurate".

The interceptor missile destroyed an incoming target missile in a direct hit at an altitude of nearly 15 km over the Bay of Bengal, demonstrating the efficacy of the system.

DRDO officials said the electronically simulated target, which mimicked a missile coming from a distance of 1,500 km, was electronically hit at an altitude of 120 km.

Within minutes of the launch of the real attacker missile, a modified surface-to-surface Prithvi from Chandipur, Advanced Air Defence (AAD) missile, the actual interceptor, took off from Wheeler Island and destroyed the 'hostile' missile at an altitude of 15 km in the endo-atmospheric mode at 12.52 p.m.

Missile technologists from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) for the first time tested the configuration for destroying an incoming actual missile and another electronically simulated missile. The score: BMD - 2, Enemy Missiles - 0. 

Celebrations broke out at Wheeler Island following the success of the mission, which was the eighth ballistic interceptor missile test. So far seven missions have been successful and one of them, the first one was conducted in exo-atmopshere at an altitude of 48 km in November 2006.

Defence Minister A.K. Antony lauded the DRDO scientists for the successful test.

This was the seventh time the BMD system has been tested successfully over the last six years and promptly, the DRDO declared a missile shield could be deployed for New Delhi by 2014. 

"We are now ready to convert the BMD system from an experimental to an operational one that can be deployed on demand. I am confident we can deploy the Phase-I of the BMD system by 2014," said DRDO chief V K Saraswat said of the result from the Wheeler Island test range off Odisha coast.

All said and done, even American missile defence systems like Patriot Advanced Capability-3, Aegis BMD-3 and THAAD (terminal high-altitude area defence), as also Russian and Israeli ones, are not fully foolproof as of now and further efforts are on to perfect them. 

As soon as the target missile was launched, the Long-Range Tracking Radars and the Multi-Functional Radars traced it and passed on the data to the guidance computer to launch the AAD, which homed on to the target missile and pulverised it.

In the latest BDM test, only one of the incoming missiles was real: a modified Prithvi missile mimicking M-9/M-11 class of Chinese Dong Feng short-range ballistic missiles. The other was an electronically simulated missile of a longer range of 1,500km. 

But both the 'enemy' missile launches were, however, conducted "in the same window" to test the BMD system's capability to handle "multiple threats" simultaneously. 

"This has been done only by the two superpowers (US and Russia) till now. The real missile was destroyed at an altitude of 14.7-km by the interceptor missile with a direct hit," Saraswat was quoted as saying.

"The entire test was done practically in deployment configuration," he said. 

Meanwhile, DRDO has also begun work on adding a third tier to the BMD system.

The existing two-tier system is designed to track and destroy ballistic missiles both inside (endo) and outside (exo) the earth's atmosphere. The third layer is planned to tackle low-flying cruise missiles, artillery projectiles and rockets in the line with the overall aim to achieve "near 100% kill or interception probability". 

"Look what is happening in the Middle-East (Hamas firing rockets at Israeli cities before the recent ceasefire)...hence, protection against low-cost, very close range threats is also needed. We have begun some initial work on the third-tier. We will try to integrate it with the BMD system once it fructifies," Saraswat said. 

At present, the BMD system's phase-1, under which interceptors fly at 4.5 Mach high-supersonic speeds to intercept enemy missiles, is meant to tackle hostile missiles with a 2,000-km strike range. 

Under DRDO's plans, the BMD phase-2 will take on 5,000-km range missiles, virtually in the class of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), with interceptors at hypersonic speeds of 6-7 Mach. 

During the present test, Long Range Radar and MFC Radar located far away could detect the enemy missile from take-off and tracked it through its entire path. The total trajectory of the incoming Missile was continuously estimated by the guidance computer and subsequently the AAD Missile was launched at an appropriate time to counter and kill the ballistic missile, DRDO officials said.

"The Ring Laser Gyro-based navigation system in target, Fibre Optic Gyro based INS in Interceptor, on board computers, guidance systems, actuation systems and the critical RF Seekers used for the terminal phase have performed excellently," a defence scientist said.

"The AAD Missile system, initially guided by Inertial Navigation system, was continuously getting update of the target position by the radar through a data link. The Radio Frequency (RF) seeker tracked the missile and on board computer guided the missile towards the target missile and hit the target. The Radio Proximity Fuse (RPF) exploded the warhead thereby destroying the target missile completely," he added.

In this mission, a special feature of intercepting multiple target with multiple interceptor was demonstrated successfully, DRDO spokesperson Ravi Gupta said.

"An electronic target with a range of 1500 km was launched and the radars picked up the target missile, tracked the target missile subsequently and launched an electronic interceptor missile. This electronic interceptor missile destroyed the electronic target missile at an altitude of 120 km," Gupta said.

"All the four missiles were tracked by the radars and all the guidance and launch computers operated in full operational mode for handling multiple targets with multiple interceptors. All the four missiles were in the sky simultaneously and both the interceptions took place near simultaneously" he said.

"This has proved the capability of DRDO to handle multiple targets with multiple interceptors simultaneously. The complete Radar Systems, Communication Networks, Launch Computers, Target update Systems and state-of-the-art Avionics have been completely proven in this mission," he added.

DRDO Chief Controller (Missiles and Strategic Systems) Avinash Chander, Research Centre Imarat Associate Director Sateesh Reddy and AD Mission Programme Director Adalat Ali were present.
