According to Reuters, China’s defense minister said that the country’s military will take action “at any cost” to foil any attempt to separate the self-ruled island of Taiwan, which Beijing claims as its own. On Monday, the United States sent two warships through the Taiwan Strait, the latest in a series of U.S. gestures in support of democratic Taiwan.

With North Korea’s 70th Foundation Day coming up on September 9th,… satellite imagery shows the regime is set to stage another military parade.
This comes as worries mount that diplomatic efforts on its denuclearization are stalling.
Lee Seung-jae reports.
Parades have long been a way for North Korea to show off its military power to the world.
Come September 9th,… Pyongyang will host a number of major events for the 70th anniversary of the regime’s founding,… including a military parade.
Based on commercial satellite imagery gathered by Planet Labs Inc., analysts say the parade is likely to be very similar to one staged in February.
But 38 North,… a U.S. think tank devoted to analyzing North Korea,… thinks otherwise.
According to their analysis of satellite photos,… North Korea has been readying for the parade since July,… and the event is expected to be one of the largest,… given the scale of preparation.
Images show some 500 trucks used to transport troops parked outside a parade formation.
It also found the shelters for troops are larger than the ones used in the preparation for the military parade to mark the 70th anniversary of the North Korean Army in February.
Satellite images dated August 22nd show the Mirim Parade Training Ground full of tanks, self-propelled artillery, infantry carriers, anti-aircraft missiles, and rocket launchers.
Other possible weapons to be showcased include coastal defense cruise missiles, as well as at least six solid-fuel, short-range ballistic missiles possibly of a type first seen in February.
However, analysts say there are no signs of ICBMs yet.
They added that, if ICBMs or other large missiles are present,… they would likely remain hidden under cover in heavy equipment storage areas until the day of the parade.
The parade is also expected to draw visits by foreign delegations,… and for the first time in five years,… a massive choreographed performance known as the “Mass Games”.

Turkish Armed Forces (TSK)\r
According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), in new the Turkish Armed Forces had an ive strength of around 510,000 personnel. In addition, it was estimated that there were 378,700 reserve personnel and 152,200 paramilitary personnel (Turkish Gendarmerie and Turkish Coast Guard), giving a combined ive and reserve strength of around 1,041,900 personnel. In new, the defence budget amounted to 26 billion liras. The Law on the Court of Accounts was supposed to initiate external ex-post audits of armed forces expenditure and pave the way for audits of extra budgetary resources earmarked for the defence sector, including the Defence Industry Support Fund. However, the Ministry of Defense has not provided the necessary information, so the armed forces expenditure is not being properly checked.\r
\r
In 1998, Turkey announced a programme of modernisation worth US$160 billion over a twenty-year period in various projects including tanks, fighter jets, helicopters, submarines, warships and assault rifles. Turkey is a Level 3 contributor to the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) programme. The final goal of Turkey is to produce new-generation indigenous military equipment and to become increasingly self-sufficient in terms of military technologies.\r

Havelsan of Turkey and Boeing of the United States are in the process of developing a next-generation, high-altitude ballistic missile defence shield. Turkey has chosen the Chinese defense firm CPMIEC to co-produce a $4 billion long-range air and missile system.\r

Greece currently has universal compulsory military service for males, under which all men above 18 years of age serve for 9 months. Women may serve in the Greek military, but cannot be conscripted. According to NATO, in 2008, Greece spent 2.8 percent of G.D.P. on its military, or about €6.9 billion, or around $9.3 billion. Greece is the largest importer of conventional weapon in Europe and its military spending is the highest in the European Union (relative to G.D.P).\r

Russia’s Defense Capabilities in 2018

War weary and under financial pressure, Russia’s defence and security policy will remain assertive in 2018, but there will also be a greater degree of risk aversion.
Author: Pavel Luzin
Sky high defense spending, as if in preparation for a major war, is depleting Russia. In 2018, Moscow will face the question of how long this can endure. Although the authoritarian regime has not been prepared (so far) to up the ante even further, it cannot significantly cut this type of expenditure either, mostly for domestic political reasons. So far it has also failed to overburden the West with confrontation and newly created problems.

Consequently, the Kremlin will try to create more problems for the West in the coming year while avoiding any excessive waste of its main resources; there will be a reluctance when it comes to taking on too many further foreign policy responsibilities, but the Kremlin will endeavour to remain unrestrained in its assertive actions abroad for as long as possible.

At the same time, the general inefficiency of the Russian political and economic system makes further self-isolation of Russia and the development of semi-military governance methods the most likely outcome.

The limit to financing

By 2017, Moscow reached the limits of its defense spending: in 2016, it spent 5.67 trillion rubles ($84.6 billion at an average annual exchange rate) or 6.59 percent of GDP. It is important that Russia’s cumulative defense expenditure should be estimated based on two items of the federal budget – “National defense” (3.77 trillion rubles/ $56.3 billion) and “National security and law enforcement” (1.9 trillion rubles/ $28.3 billion). It is noteworthy that 800 billion rubles earmarked for “National defense” was used to repay debts owed by Russian defense companies.

The trick is that the Russian military doctrine and national security strategy actually encompasses external and internal threats. What is more, not only the armed forces but also divisions of the National Guard of the Russian Federation (Rosgvardia), Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB), Ministry of Emergency Situations and Ministry of Internal Affairs participated in military exercises “Zapad-2017” (West-2017). In other words, all the Russian siloviki are incorporated into the system of domestic and international military planning. Hence, the necessity to inflate the level of funds earmarked for security agencies arises.

On the whole, the 2016 level can be considered an aberration, largely stemming from the high level of inefficiency of the Russian military industry. It comes as no surprise that Russian defense spending apparently shrank to around 5 trillion rubles in 2017. Of this sum, approximately 3 trillion rubles has been earmarked for “National defense” and almost 2 trillion rubles – for “National security and law enforcement”. In 2018, these limits will generally be maintained (classified expenditure included): t

3ºEn la fuerza de escolta, en la capacidad antiaérea. Destaco la capacidad AEGIS de países aliados de los americanos y la capacidad del SA-N-6 ruso. Me parece de una importancia vital destacar la capacidad de estos sistemas para interceptar un ataque de misiles de crucero, hacer control de tráfico aéreo y, quizás en el futuro cercano, la interceptación de un ataque de misiles balísticos y el uso de este sistema de combate en la guerra espacial antisatélite.\r
