AH-64D Longbow Apache

The AH-64A embodied the knowledge bought in the Korean and Vietnam Wars by the blood of the pilots of the first armed and combat helicopters. For a long time, he became the standard of a combat helicopter, which was able to decimate the enemy's tank columns. But technology from the early 70's has some limitations. Therefore, it was necessary to develop the AH-64D Longbow Apache, which significantly expanded the capabilities of the original helicopter.

Hezbollah movement and "early peacekeeping" in the Summer War in Lebanon

The conflict between the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and the state of Israel in 2006 surprised the whole world with its suddenness and fierceness. However, even an intense military engagement did not solve the problem in the long run. The presented study deals with the issue of so-called "premature peacekeeping", which may have contributed to the tie.

LEBANON 2006: Good news for Israel

A disaster can also be good news - if it warns of a major disaster. This is how the Jewish year 5766 (administratively Christian 2006) can be understood. He was not happy for Israel because of the Second Lebanon War. When the holiday killing in Lebanon ended, a quick assessment of the fighting immediately appeared: Hezbollah defeated the Israeli army (IDF), the victorious stalemate of Hezbollah, etc. Over time, the encounter turns out to be rather good news for the IDF. Without wanting to, Hezbollah finally revealed the direction of growth of potential and strategy in military and political resources in the still escalating lunar war.

The tragic failure of Amnesty International

After World War II, in which freedom was expensively redeemed, losses were counted: the war cost 55 million people and the Jews in Europe were almost exterminated. This was a strong impetus for the creation of the UN and many humanitarian organizations, which set themselves the task of not repeating the horrors of war and genocide and preventing wars. However, the war conflicts in the world did not cease, the swords did not turn into blades. The Middle East is at the center of events, where huge oil fields have been discovered. In 1948, the State of Israel was established, which was immediately invaded by the surrounding Arab countries, whose goal was to destroy an independent Jewish state from the very beginning, although its existence was guaranteed by world powers.

There is a smoldering fire under the ashes

For a long time, we regarded Islam as something uniform and Muslims as a whole mass. Today we know that this is not entirely true. According to reports from Iraq, we already know that Muslims of the two main branches of the Islamic religion, Sunnis and Shiites, compete with each other and that their disputes take a very bloody form from time to time. If we were to take stock of the current threats of religious wars, hatred between Sunnis and Shiites would come to the fore.
