Paki Nuke Secret Spill Psyop, SCO, FCS, + News


Nuclear weapons blueprint 'shared among smuggling ring' (military psyop watch)

Pakistani scientist AQ Khan admitted leaking nuclear secrets in 2004




Blueprints for advanced nuclear weapons were found on computers belonging to an international smuggling ring and may have been shared among "rogue" states, it has been claimed.
The files included designs for a sophisticated compact nuclear device which could be fitted onto a ballistic missile.
The sensitive information was discovered on heavily encrypted computers in Switzerland and destroyed, but there are fears that the designs could have passed into the wrong hands.
Former UN arms inspector David Albright, an authority on the now defunct smuggling ring run by Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, said the information may have been leaked some time ago.

"Red Flag Alaska

Elmendorf hosts aircraft exercises http://www.fortmilltimes.com/124/story/196472.htmlWASILLA,
Alaska — Military units from South Korea and Japan joined U.S. flyers at Elmendorf Air Force base for war games.
Fighter jets, cargo planes and other military aircraft last week took part in the Pacific Alaska Range Complex exercises called Red Flag Alaska. The range complex, a swath of land in eastern Alaska, is almost the size of Germany and larger than South Korea.
Military units divided into red and blue teams and practice identifying and taking out the enemy. Units also practice in-flight refueling, supply drops, air evacuations and wartime support functions.
Air Force Lt. Col. Gregory Franklin said that at any one time there could be as many as 100 airplanes in the air. The goal is to give pilots and crews a realistic wartime simulation.
Red Flag exercises are conducted in Alaska and outside Las Vegas. The Pacific Complex is far larger....

Contractors hope cannon creates bang, strikes bucks

Defense contractors and military officials in Southeast Michigan hope a prototype defense vehicle that debuted in Washington last week will impress lawmakers enough to be awarded full funding.The XM-1203 Non Line-of-Sight Cannon was to make several D.C. appearances, culminating with the 233rd U.S. Army Birthday Ball held Saturday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The mobile 155mm howitzer cannon is built by Rockville, Md.-based BAE Systems from a common chassis system developed by BAE and Sterling Heights-based General Dynamics Land Systems.The cannon is one of eight proposed Manned Ground Vehicles, all of which use the common chassis system, under the Army's sometimes-controversial Future Combat Systems program. The cannon can rain “non-line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight” shell fire on distant objects, using targeting data it obtains from other vehicles developed under the program......

In 2006, the US Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration selected Los Alamos National Laboratory as the development site for the world's fastest supercomputer - Roadrunner. Designed and built by IBM, Roadrunner performs operations at the speed of 1 pentaflop, i.e. 1 million billion calculations per second. This is nearly twice as fast as the IBM Blue Gene system at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, the earlier holder of the world's fastest supercomputer title. Roadrunner cost about US $100 million. It will primarily be used to ensure the safety and reliability of the United States' nuclear weapons stockpile. It will also be used for research into astronomy, energy, human genome science and climate change.
