    So an article about putin pushing "hypersonic missiles" and "lasers" stated their best can travel at 27 times the speed of sound and turn rapidly. Uh, makes me think there is a huge amount (not surprising) in what putin is saying. If a "missile" at 27 times the speed of sound could turn rapidly (he actually used a more hyperspeed turn), the missile would fall apart from the stress of a rapid turn. I don't believe even any, ultra expensive for missiles, metal or ??? could withstand anywhere near such. I am no expert, just saying from what I know.

    Incredible insight from Fatboy-Mike, (as he is known, given his obesity issues)........and yes, it's hilarious that Fatboy-Mike got exposed as a fraud via his since-deleted post bragging about making $3/share profit on 100 shates, but he forgot to blackout a $7/share LOSS on 700 shares......a dimwit. Also his brilliant short of Roku at $278/share (OUCH.....that one had to hurt ! ). His patented move is showing up on a board of a stock that has had a huge rise, and then claiming he bought it $13 ago (although he's gotten caught lying twice doing that). Yeah, Fatboy-Mike apparently knows his all-you-can-eat buffets, but not so much about stock analysis😂😂😂😂

    One has to wonder about the similarities of the reason for the breakup of the Soviet Union and Chinas possible break up. large expense for new ships, Islands, infrastructure to exploit underdeveloped nations minerals,.... Chinas Evergrande seems to spill over into many other Chinese companies. That is not strange as China owns the majority of, likely, all of it's companies. Add to this the months ago stranding of the Evergrande Evergreen container ship and it's still undetermined price for all the work needed to be done, paying back those shippers that lost time, thereby money,..;;.. from being backed up..... Military cold war buildups have a poor outcome, especially for the Humans of the countries.

    One has to wonder if the Israeli high altitude launch detection system works for the hypersonic missiles (if they are real) and if we don't already have several of the systems. I can't imagine such for such short range launches as they experience.

    looks like we're heading into the post covid era, bae climbing back to where it should be. Was more than 6 pre lockdown, don't see why it won't get back there soon.

    With the army force cutting down on personnel and the government going towards a tech army, I can see a lot of investment in this sector for 2021.

    maybe with increased dividend, share buyback, and raised guidance,this stock may actually create a return for shareholders

    I wonder where the taliban will:

    1. get spare parts for equipment left behind

    2. find mechanics among their fighters capable of maintaining, .... equipment requiring high amounts of maintenance in the Afghan environment.

    3. Obtain monies for enough gas,.....

    4.....

    I'm sure they are elated at present, but, will be greatly disappointed over a short amount of time.

    The company received an extra boost this week with news that Britain is about to resume arms shipments to Saudi Arabia. These were temporarily stopped over concerns about their possible use in Yemen. Saudi Arabia is one of the world’s biggest defence spenders and a major buyer of BAE Systems’s revenues-spinning Typhoon fighter jets.

    Interesting article in which General Mark Miley speaks about learning from history. He stated he has read Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, but is not a Communist. General George Patton is quoted in many places to have said: "Rommel, you &6%%$%, I read your book" (meaning he learned from history, helping him defeat Rommel in Africa in WWII. The article is about, so called, "Race Theory", but is simply as Milly described it, history.
