There are numerous events that activists ought to register to attend as little of what's presented ever gets media exposure--events like Sustainability Comes of Age and Sustainable Finance to name just two of dozens. The USA, amongst others like Russia, has vastly more capable weapons, ones that need neither nuclear engines, nor war heads. For example, imagine a situation in which military planners need to knock out enemy artillery before it can open fire. Formulae are developed and refined due to careful analysis of training practices and real-world combat experience. The missiles are also extremely accurate, being both linked to GLONASS (Russia’s GPS equivalent), and also capable of making independent in-flight changes in order to track a moving target. (China’s missiles are currently, I believe, all land-based – but even this means that any ship within 2,000km of China’s coast (or the various island bases) can be sunk).

The Judo-twist by the Houthis in claiming responsibility is brilliant if true. While people who do not understand the scientific method, will pooh-pooh this as delusions of an environmental cult, what they do not understand is that when 20,000 scientists reach a consensus regarding a hypothesis, you can bet that finding is a FACT, not a belief, and it has a very high degree of probability of occurring.
