Background: North Korean Nuclear Program

By Kevin Banks | May 18, 2017

North Korea is a hot topic right now so I thought it would be worthwhile to give some background into their nuclear program. In 2006, 2009 and 2013, North Korea tested atomic weapons and in 2016 tested another, larger weapon with a yield of 10-30 kilotonnes[i]. It’s worth noting that the atomic bombs dropped in World War II were…

By Kevin Banks | February 11, 2017

One of the most significant events in the history of Islam was the decision by the Abbasid caliph al Mutassim to import young Turks from the Central Asian Steppes as slaves to serve as highly trained, mounted archers. This process of importing these young Turks would continue for centuries and would soon change the course…

Piracy in the Barbary – Part I

By Kevin Banks | February 18, 2017
