President Vladimir Putin asserts Russian scientists have developed an "invincible" cruise missile. While scientists have sought invincibility by applying ever-advancing technologies, history has shown us this approach does not work. Adversaries inevitably devise ways to counter any system of offense or defense. However, there is a scientifically-validated way of achieving unquestioned invincibility for any leader who seeks it.

History shows that political resolutions cannot be achieved while tensions remain high. Deep-rooted ethnic and national stresses embedded in the collective consciousness are at the basis of the Israel and Hamas conflict, as in all other conflicts worldwide. Unless these stresses are rooted out, destruction and killing will continue, as they have for millennia. Now there is hope because a proven peace technology is available.

Since the Nepalese Army began United Nations (UN) peacekeeping missions, troops have followed some Vedic traditions in operational areas. However, there has been no widespread application of Vedic Defence Technology (VDT) in peacekeeping missions to create social coherence. Since the goal of VDT matches the goal of UN missions to achieve sustainable peace in the world, the authors urge UN leaders to support its implementation

Due to the Cheonan sinking, tensions rise again between South and North Korea. Technically at war since the 1953 ceasefire, their long-term struggle is a "cold civil war" with periodic "hot flashes." Protracted "civil wars" in Latin American countries followed similar patterns. However, the latter situation is changing, and both Koreas could learn from Latin American countries who are implementing Invincible Defense Technology

I enjoyed the movie The Men Who Stare at Goats for what it was, a satirical look at the US military's attempt to develop their warriors' full potential. "Paranormal" & "supernatural" are loaded terms carrying negative connotations. Scientists hesitate to profess interest in this realm. Since I am associated with one of the real-life characters, I discuss the real-life military applications of Invincible Defense Technology

For over 20 years, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and his military have tried and failed to eliminate violent extremism. Conventional approaches to national defense can no longer guarantee peace and security, and a new approach is crucial. A proven new defense technology called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), could be easily applied, is cost-effective, and prevents disruption and attack from within or outside a country.
