Wow. This totally looks like the beginning of World War III but thankfully it’s just Operation Trident Juncture, a military exercise by NATO. But not just any old exercise, it’s the biggest military exercise NATO has done in decades and one that required 36,000 troops and more than 140 aircraft and 60 ships from over…
This amazing shot may look like a perfectly-photographed and staged action movie–but it was actually taken this morning as pilots prepare for the largest NATO exercise in 13 years.
Confused about what's been going on between Russia and Ukraine? You're not alone. And that's sort of the point — this conflict serves as a case study in the effectiveness of shadowy, "hybrid" warfare, which is hard to understand from the outside. And the effectiveness of this strategy means it could be the future of…
Reuters is reporting that Russian hackers were able to spy on computers used by NATO, the European Union and the Ukraine, as well as private companies, thanks to a security flaw in Windows.
In an attempt to thwart and discourage the use of cars and other vehicles in suicide bombing attacks, NATO has been funding the development of a compact electromagnetic jammer that can safely cause an engine to cut out before a bomber reaches their target.
Cyber-warfare is all well and civilized when it's confined to a tit-for-tat hacking of banks, but it's got the potential to spiral out of control real fast. To try and prevent that, and save the world from a hacked-WoW-account-induced apocalypse, NATO's comissioned a set of international laws to try and make…
This seems like yet another boring refueling video taken by a KC-135 Stratotanker's flying boom operator—until the NATO E-3 Sentry AWACS plane almost crashes with it. At the last second, the Sentry's pilot pushes down in a massive negative G-force party, avoiding a fatal outcome. Things look fun when a major…
NATO and the Taliban have never really gotten along—a decade of collapsed state power vacuum insurgency warfare will do that. But can't we count on Twitter as a bastion of civility? Apparently not! The battling pair's bickering online.
In reporting on the Fall of Tripoli, Reuters tells the inside story of Abdel Majid Mlegta, a caterer who supplied the victuals for Gaddafi's regime. Putting key inside information on a series of memory sticks, this man was instrumental in bringing Gaddafi down.
Reports are coming in from the regions that Muammar Gaddafi and his sons have fled Libya. Al Jazeera reports that Pro-Gaddafi residents in Tripoli have gotten texts telling them to "eliminate agents with weapons."
Despite the recent spate of arrests on their side, Anon released 400MB of NATO data courtesy of big-time cybersecurity firm ManTech last night. This is their way of making good on a promise and reiterating that they "aren't scared anymore".
Undeterred by a rash of arrests, the hackers at Anonymous are boasting "about one gigabyte" of data from NATO. But they're not going to publish most of it, as it'd be "irresponsible." The rest? "Interesting data," they say.
NATO recently condemned the antics of Anonymous, saying that "the longer these attacks persist the more likely countermeasures will be developed, implemented, the groups will be infiltrated and perpetrators persecuted." Anonymous didn't like that.
Armed with an internet connection and his Twitter account, Sky New's reporter Mark Stone uncovered the truth about a NATO airstrike that supposedly killed a number of Libyan civilians last week.
Moammar Gadhafi is now filling boats with one ton of explosives and sending them out to sea with a crew manned by dummies. In Gadhafi's latest military strategy, these pilotless boats drift until they find a NATO target to destroy.
With the Stuxnet virus wreaking havoc on Iranian nuclear plants, NATO is divided on how to prevent and respond to future cyberattacks. Americans advocating a more proactive stance on combating cyber-ne'er-do-wells, an approach America's NATO allies are skeptical of.
By now, the world knows that the future of warfare isn't necessarily physical, but how prepared are world leaders for virtual war and cyber terrorism really? You should ask the inhabitants of K5.
