First off, the picture above; it’s probably the best quality image of China’s J-20 stealth fighter to emerge so far
and China Defense Blog: http://china-defense.blogspot.com/2011/04/highest-resolution-j-20-photo-thus-far.html
posted it yesterday. Blow it up and go wild, all you armchair IMINT analysts.

Seal Team Six book due 24 May 2011

SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper [Hardcover]

Howard E. Wasdin (Author)
Stephen Templin (Author)


Advance Praise for SEAL Team Six:

“SEAL Team Six is a masterful blend of one man’s—Waz-Man’s—journey from hard knocks to hard corps. Even better, Waz-Man and Templin can actually write as good as they can shoot. They capture your attention at every turn—not knowing if you’re about to take a bullet to the head from a SEAL sniper or get hit in the gut with a punch line.”

—Dalton Fury, former Delta Force Commander and New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden



“Great insights into the training and operations of one of America’s premier counterterrorism units. Grabs you on page one and is hard to put down.”

—General Henry H. Shelton, USA(R), former Commander-In-Chief, U.S. Special Operations Command and 14th Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff



“Wasdin is a true warrior and real hero. SEAL Team Six is a must read.”

—Gunnery Sgt. Jack Coughlin, USMC, and bestselling author of Shooter

Secretive Virginia SEALs thrill community by taking down bin Laden

By Annys Shin and Annie Gowen
Monday, May , 8:14 PM

When Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms learned that a Navy SEAL unit based just outside his city had taken out Osama bin Laden, his first thought was to honor them.

The only problem, however, was he had no idea who they were, or how to find them.

The unit that carried out the raid on bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan Sunday afternoon is renowned for its secrecy.

But while such discretion is a prerequisite for covert operations, it raises practical hurdles for a mayor who is used to the cheering crowds that welcome home aircraft carriers to the naval base in Norfolk.

“This community is extremely proud. I’d like to come up with a way to have a city celebration of some kind. If we can!” said Sessoms, whose initial thought was to include the SEALs in the city’s “Patriotic Festival” in June. “But it’s challenging.”

Other Virginia politicians were able to overlook such details, satisfied with the knowledge that that men who killed bin Laden had a connection to the Old Dominion state. Former Republican Senator and current candidate George Allen tweeted: “As Virginians were hit at the Pentagon on 9-11 & USS Cole, it is appropriate that a VA-based SEAL team brought justice directly to #Osama.”

The Naval Special Warfare Development Group -- long known as Seal Team Six -- was formed in 1980 in the wake of the failed attempt to rescue U.S. hostages from Iran.

The elite counter-terrorism unit deploys from a tiny military facility in Dam Neck, Va., just outside of Virginia Beach. There are six other groups within special warfare and a total of 2,300 active duty SEAL officers.

What makes SEALs special are the grueling training process they endure. After basic training, about 200 candidates make it to Basic Underwater Demolition school. By the end of the entire process, only about 30 to 35 remain. Many drop out after “Hell Week,” when they must train around the clock for six days straight.

The extreme training has another purpose: to create an intense bond between the men that is critical to success in combat situations. Former Navy SEAL commander Mark Divine said the experience is so unique that it can make it harder to relate to someone who doesn’t spend their days jumping out of planes, or swimming two miles in frigid waters in total darkness. SEALs also work in small close-knit groups and because they can’t openly discuss much of their work, they tend to stick together even when they are off duty. Virginia Beach locals refer to them as “team guys.”

“You don’t hardly know they are there unless they are your neighbor,” explained Sessoms. “What’s unique is the burden it puts on these families. ” Members’ wives and children “don’t know when they are leaving and where they are when they are gone and when they are coming home. It’s all quiet and hidden.”

SEALS are not invisible to everyone, however, especially when they roam among couch-surfing civilians.

“You can kind of tell. They’re extremely fit. They all kind of dress in a similar way, wear the same type of sunglasses and Tevas,” Divine said. “You can start to notice these guys by the way they carry themselves.”

They are a “high testosterone group,” said Alden Mills, who was an active duty SEAL from 1991 to 1998. Their ethos is captured by slogans such as “failure is not an option” and “pain is weakness leaving the body.”

Mills summed up the reaction to bin Laden’s death among his former SEAL buddies as “Hooyah!”

“That’s SEAL speak for ‘fired up,’ ” he said.

“The next feeling as someone who used to be there was, ‘Wish I could have been there too.’”

Staff writer Christian Davenport contributed to this report.

Acupuncture needle removed from lung of former South Korean president

The former president of South Korea was admitted to hospital with a bad cough only to end up on the operating table to remove an acupuncture needle from his right lung.

Roh Tae-woo, 78, who served as South Korean president from 1988 to 1993, has been in poor health since 2002 when he received surgery for prostate cancer.

He was released from Seoul National University Hospital on Monday after surgery to remove the 2.6 inch needle

Doctors are puzzled how the needle ended up in his lung, and acupuncturists say that none of their procedures involved penetrating the lung.

"I can't figure out how the needle got into there," Dr Sung Myung-whun said at the hospital after the operation. "It is a mystery for me, too."

Wired Danger Room

Beyond bin Laden: 10 Top Terrorists Taken Down
By Adam Rawnsley
May 3, 2011 | 7:00 am
Categories: Terrorists, Guerillas, Pirates


User Image


U.S. special operations forces raided a comfortable mansion in Abottabad, Pakistan, yesterday, killing Osama bin Laden and capping off a global manhunt that has lasted well over a decade. Bin Laden hasn't been the only one sought. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, a number of senior leaders, associates or fellow travelers fled Afghanistan to take shelter in Pakistan's more populated cities like Rawalpindi where many were captured by U.S. and Pakistani forces. In the years that followed, American drones and special operators found "high value targets" in places like Pakistan's tribal areas or in quiet hideouts in Iraq. The list of targets grew to include leadership of the Pakistani Taliban. Along the way, U.S. officials have used the names and tallies of jihadi leaders captured and killed as markers in the "war on terror." Here are some of their stories in brief.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

The alleged mastermind of the 9/11 operation, Mohammed claimed involvement in at least 31 different plots and was identified as the murderer of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl by the veins in his hand, shown in a grisly video of Pearl's death. He was captured near Rawalpindi, Pakistan, on March 1, 2003, and instantly became the most valuable -- and one of the most-tortured -- detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

Rumor of the day: Original Terminator cast to return in new film

By Don Kaye
6:58PM on May 2, 2011


User Image


Remember last week's news that a pitch for a new Terminator film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger was making its way around Hollywood? Turns out that Arnie isn't the only cast member who might come back.

According to a rumor at Latino Review, the proposal circulating through studio offices—which is currently going under the name Terminator 2012—has attached to it not just Schwarzenegger in his signature role, but the "entire original cast" of the first Terminator film.

We put that in quotes because the report doesn't get any more specific than that, although the site claims it comes from a valid source. Does that mean just the main characters, like Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor and Michael Biehn as Kyle Reese? Or will Bill Paxton get a mohawk and reprise his role as the "punk leader"? No clue. We can probably assume, however, that anything involving the "original cast" would have to include Hamilton and Biehn.

Keep in mind that not a single actor has signed on the line that is dotted, and a screenplay doesn't even exist yet. A director (Justin Lin of Fast Five fame) is attached as well, but the movie doesn't become a reality until one of the studios taking a look at the property decides to write the check.

As for how Terminator 2012 would fit into the snarled continuity of the last two films in the series (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation), Latino Review offers a suggestion: Don't bother. Forget those movies ever existed and use the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day as your starting point again.

Would you like to see the original Terminator cast reunited? Do you think there's a way to make that work somehow, without rebooting the series completely?

Crop Circle House: Victoria, Australia Earth Home


While it may look like the work of an extraterrestrial, this swirling green home was actually designed by a mere earthling. And if you need more evidence of its origin, the crop circle-esque home is actually named the Earth House.

Designed by Jolson Architecture, the eye-catching abode was built from local materials and blends gracefully into the verdant site it sits upon.
