    Exclusive: Inside IS Terror Weapons Lab

    Terror group Islamic State is employing scientists and weapons experts to train jihadists to carry out sophisticated "spectacular" attacks in Europe, while also modifying weapons systems capable of targeting passenger jets and military aircraft.

    From a "jihadi university" in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the scientists have stunned western weapons experts by producing a homemade thermal battery for surface-to-air missiles.

    It had been regarded as a virtually impossible feat for terror groups working without a military infrastructure.

    But footage exclusively obtained by Sky News shows that IS can now recommission thousands of missiles assumed by western governments to have been redundant through old age.

    Heat-seeking warheads can be used to attack passenger and military aircraft. They are 99% accurate once locked on.

    For decades terror groups, including the IRA, had these weapons but storing them and maintaining the thermal battery - a key component to the warhead - was very difficult.

    It seems that IS scientists have got round the problem, and that revelation will shock the world of international security.

    The IS research and development team has produced fully working remote controlled cars to act as mobile bombs, while they have fitted the cars with "drivers"; mannequins with self-regulating thermostats to produce the heat signature of humans, allowing the car bombs to evade sophisticated scanning machines that protect military and government buildings in the West.

    The group trained fighters from a variety of countries to carry out attacks and to train more jihadists in their own countries.

    An IS trainer with more than eight hours of unedited training videos was captured by the remnants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) as he headed north through Turkey towards Europe.

    The FSA passed the material to Sky News but was not aware of the importance of the videos, described by a weapons adviser to the British military as an intelligence "gold mine".

    Using aerial and satellite imagery Sky News has identified the location of the "university" and pieced together the apparently random collection of video files to reveal the true extent of IS's sophisticated development and training team.

    Although this type of activity had been widely suspected by western intelligence services, this is the first concrete evidence that it is taking place.

    Crucially, it is far more developed than had previously been thought possible.

    Groups of trainees from a range of countries including Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Tunisia, Egypt and Pakistan were given terror training courses using science labs and facilities based around the former Equestrian Centre in Raqqa.

    Nuclear Arsenals Of The World: Who Owns What?

    At the start of 2015, nine states around the world possessed approximately 15,850 nuclear weapons, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

    A SIPRI report released last year revealed some 90% of those missiles belonged to the US and Russia, with the rest in the hands of the UK, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea.

    At any one time around 1,800 warheads are maintained in a state of operational alert.

    I think we've been in WW3 since the invasion of Iraq. It's not a war like WW2 simply because our societies no longer need to war like that. No air raids, no major battles. Those days are gone. Terrorism and asymmetrical warfare, franchised-out bombers, drones and robots, independents radicalized over social media. We're in the middle of a world war for sure, it's just that it's hard to expect because it doesn't look anything like the kind of wars most us think of when we hear the word "war".

    Rubbish! Whatever the economic successes of China a few years back they're still far too economically and militarily undeveloped to pose any threat to the west's current hegemony. For now they're a bogeyman, nothing more.

    Pulling together a list of the wars most in need of international attention and support in 2016 is challenging for all the wrong reasons. For 20 years after the end of the Cold War, deadly conflict was in decline. Fewer wars were killing fewer people the world over. Five years ago, however, that positive trend went into reverse, and each year since has seen more conflict, more victims, and more people displaced. 2016 is unlikely to bring an improvement from the woes of 2015: It is war — not peace — that has momentum.
    That said, there are conflicts whose urgency and importance rise above. This year’s list of 10 is weighted toward wars with the worst humanitarian consequences: Syria and Iraq, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Yemen, and the Lake Chad basin. It includes those in influential and functioning states, like Turkey, as well as those that have collapsed, like Libya. It features conflicts that are already bad but are poised to get much worse without intelligent intervention, such as Burundi, as well as tensions, such as those in the South China Sea, that are simmering but have yet to boil over. The list also considers the hopeful example presented by Colombia, where considerable progress is being made toward ending a 51-year insurgency.

    Rubbish.

    So 1990-2010 saw less wars and deaths through war and terrorism per annum than 2010-2015?

    Cobblers.

    You said 'of course' - so I am guessing you see this as something quite obvious and easy to demonstrate.

    A threat to the world and to everything else? Blimey! Do you really mean all or perhaps you mean just the galaxy and local cluster?
