I'll be president of Europe if you give me the power - Blair; Israelis Told to Prepare 'Rocket Rooms' in case of future war
be president of Europe if you give me the power - Blair
Tony Blair has been holding discussions with some of his oldest allies on how he could mount a campaign later this year to become full-time president of the EU council, the prestigious new job characterised as "president of Europe". Blair, currently the Middle East envoy for the US, Russia, EU and the UN, has told friends he has made no final decision, but is increasingly willing to put himself forward for the job if it comes with real powers to intervene in defence and trade affairs.
US Navy believes it has made a 'revolutionary approach to naval warfare' after
demonstrating a powerful electromagnetic railgun
Claims of the reported military milestone came after it was revealed that the railgun can destroy targets at 5600 mph.
"The gun is designed to launch these projectiles extremely far, somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 nautical miles, and their impact velocity is extremely high, somewhere in the vicinity of Mach 5," said US Navy spokesman Jim Boyle on Thursday in Dahlgren, Virginia.
naval gun will allow vessels to hit targets at greater distances and can
reportedly be used to destroy incoming ballistic missiles.
Compared to a standard 5-inch naval gun battery which can fire shells with a range of 20 miles, an electromagnetic railgun can fire a projectile with a range of 230 miles in only seven minutes.
and Hamas to share control of Gaza-Sinai border. Hamas rule gains de facto
Hamas leaders Khaled Meshaal from Damascus and Mahmoud a-Zahar from Gaza won an important point in the talks they held in Cairo up until Saturday Feb. 2: The Egyptian government submitted to the new status quo created by Hamas when it bulldozed the Gaza-Sinai border ten days ago. In effect, Cairo extended de facto recognition to Hamas’ rule of the Gaza Strip and the Ismail Haniya government. In so doing, the Mubarak government broke away from the international boycott of Hamas rule in Gaza.
Retired senior officers told Israelis on Saturday to prepare "rocket rooms" as protection against a rain of missiles expected to be fired at the Jewish state in any future conflict.
Speaking on radio as part of a military propaganda offensive, retired general Udi Shani said: "The next war will see a massive use of ballistic weapons against the whole of Israeli territory."
Shani was tasked recently with drawing up a report on the way the military authorities operated during Israel's 2006 summer war against Hezbollah in Lebanon.
During that conflict thousands of rockets hit Israel, but were limited to the north of the country from where hundreds of thousands of people were evacuated.
The character of war has changed, said the general.
"Strikes to the rear must now be taken into account -- that is what will come and we must prepare in a totally different way for this eventuality," he said.
