Welcome to CNN 10,
where we`re taking you everywhere from the

Middle East to the Far East this Tuesday.
I`m Carl Azuz.
And our first story concerns a weapon that
said to be hypersonic, meaning it would travel

at several times the speed of sound. Russia`s

ministry says it`s conducted a successful
test of a hypersonic missile. A nation might

want to want a weapon like that because in
theory, it would

fly fast enough to get through missile defense
systems, which are designed to shoot down

incoming projectiles.
Russia says its hypersonic missile was launched
from a fighter jet that it`s intended to hit

targets on land and at sea and that the one
it tested

hit a specific spot at a training ground.
Russian President Vladimir Putin called the

missile invincible and says his country has
the greatest nuclear

potential in the world.
But there is some skepticism about whether
Russia really has a working hypersonic missile.

A U.S. government official says there`s doubt
that the

weapon President Putin described was even
close to being operational. And that was echoed

by U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis.
just tell you that I saw no change to the

Russia military capability and each of these
systems he`s

talking about that are still years away, I
do not see them changing the military balance.

They do not impact any need on our side for
a change in

our deterrent posture.
AZUZ: International analysts say President
Putin might be promoting his country`s military

strength in order to portray himself as a
strong leader

in Russia and abroad. Russia has a presidential
election scheduled for March 18.

From Russia, we`re taking you to Saudi Arabia,
a nation where this June, when it will be

allowed to have drivers licenses. It`s a major
change for

the absolute monarchy, whose legal system
is based on Sharia or Islamic religious law.

The government has strict controls over many
aspects of

life there, from the economy to the nation`s
broadcast media. So, the change had to come

from the top.
Not all of the nation`s religious leaders
support the change and the kingdom still has

guardianship laws which require women to get

from their husbands, fathers or other male
relatives for many decisions in their lives.

But they will not need that permission to
drive a car.

(voice-over): Saudi Arabia is the only place

on the planet where women cannot drive a car.
In June,

though, that will all be history, as women
are set to hit the highway. The road to get

here has been paved with decades of protests
and petitions.

In 1990, 47 women took to the streets, forbidden
from riding around Riyadh, they were soon

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I love driving. I wish
I can drive in the country, in our country.

ANDERSON: Her wish was not realized. The struggle
went on. Women, thousands of them, flouted

the authorities.
WOMEN`S RIGHTS: The crime, driving while female.

ANDERSON: Fast forward to two 2011 and prominent
activist and author, Manal al-Sharif, was

jailed for nine days after she posted this
clip of her

in the driver seat on YouTube.
AL-SHARIF: It`s a symbolic act of the women
rise, we want to be full citizens. I`m educated,

I have a job and I should be able to -- I

be trusted to drive my own car.
ANDERSON: And last September that trust was

(on camera): An historic day for millions
of women and their families here in Saudi

(voice-over): The Royal decree issued by King
Salman was celebrated by many in the uber

conservative country.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I can`t wait until June.
great, actually, because we have been waiting

for this for years.
ANDERSON (on camera): How do you feel?
ATTAR: I haven`t slept from excitement.
ANDERSON: I`ve spoken here who say that they
appreciate that change is necessary. But they

say things are going so quickly. It`s too
fast. To

which you say what?
ATTAR: Which I agree it is going fast, but
I appreciate it. I don`t think -- it`s like

a Band-Aid. I think if you take it slow is
going to hurt much

more longer and it will be hard for people
to adopt. I think the fact that they realize

that there is a realization that it is necessary
to move fast

really helps the development. Because the
whole world is going fast and the people who

don`t take these fast steps are really left

ANDERSON (voice-over): Something this man
doesn`t want to happen in his country. Saudi

Arabia`s young ambitious Crown Prince Mohammad
bin Salman

is credited with driving this forward. All
part of the road ahead for Saudi Arabia, a

multifaceted vision to bring the kingdom up
to speed by

And with this change, women will no longer
be passengers simply along for the ride.

AZUZ: Major changes also taking place in China.
Its presidency used to be limited to a pair

of back to back terms of five years each.
Now, there is

no limit. It`s a constitutional change that
also applies to the country`s vice presidency.

That means that President Xi Jinping and the
person he

chooses as his V.P. could rule China for decades.
Another constitutional change has led to the
creation of an all-powerful anticorruption

agency that will have a level of power similar
to China`s

supreme court. China is a communist county.
Its main political party has no significant

opposition. So, the vote to make these changes
was mostly

It`s been criticized by some western analysts
as a return to more oppressive, single person

rule in China. The country`s government
controlled media calls that ignorant of China`s

But the government has also clamped down on
dissent across the Internet in China. People

there say it`s removed any negative reactions
to the

constitutional changes and gone after keywords
like emperor and disagree.

AZUZ (voice-over): Ten-second trivia:
Which of these conflicts occurred after "The
War to End All Wars"?

World War II, U.S. Civil War, Napoleonic Wars,
or War of 1812?

"The War to End All Wars" was another term
for World War I and the only one of these

conflicts that came after that was World War

AZUZ: More than 16 million Americans served
in the Second World War, between 1941 and

1945. And one particular unit of about 1,100
U.S. troops

had a unique mission to make it appear like
there were thousands more.

Our next subject today is about the 23rd Headquarters
Special Troops. They were also known as America`s

"Ghost Army", but they weren`t known to the
public for decades, because like its missions
themselves, the "Ghost Army" was kept secret.

In fact, its specialty involved keeping secrets
and faking large scale military movements,

with the goal of deceiving the German Army.
UNIDENTIIFED MALE: We`ve tapped into their

UNIDENTIIFED MALE: We can confirm two divisions.
UNIDENTIIFED MALE: Confirmed. We have an aerial

UNIDENTIIFED MALE: Yes, yes, we can hear them
moving in.

REPORTER: Only none of what the Germans thought
they could see or hear was real.

During World War II, a secret division of
the U.S. army, now known as the "Ghost Army",

conducted over 20 tactical operations, which
resulted in

saving tens of thousands of lives.
The mission? To trick the enemy into thinking
that their unit of 1,000 men was actually

two divisions of 30,000 men.
But the "Ghost Army" wasn`t made up of traditional
soldiers. The majority were actors, designers,

advertisers, and artists who had been recruited
from the top art and design schools around
the country.

And this army of artists used their creativity
for an infantry of illusion.

Engineers developed inflatable tanks which
the artists would then paint. These tanks

could condense down to fit into a portable
bag and inflate on

demand, much like a bouncy castle.
Audio engineers used large speakers to play
sound effects of tanks and marching soldiers,

which had been pre-recorded at Fort Knox.
This marching

army could be heard from miles away.
Along with fake radio messages sent into the
signals of the enemies, they would also send

actors dressed as generals and officers into
local towns to

spread false information and rumors.
It wasn`t until 1996, when information about
the "Ghost Army" was declassified that the

world finally knew about these masters of
misdirection, the unsung heroes of World War

AZUZ: Two words, penguin and selfie, "10 Out
of 10".

An explorer named Eddie Gault recently left
behind a camera at a penguin colony in Antarctica.

So, an emperor penguin waddled over to have
a look

and it`s not long before a friend comes over
to photo-bomb it. Well, why shouldn`t they

get their close up? They`re already wearing
tuxedos. And

then as if they`re asked what they think about
selfies in general? Nope, probably think those

are for the birds.
Hey, at least they weren`t camera shy. Of
course, they`d started march of the penguins,

so they`ve already been on air if not in it.
And who needs

to be king of Instagram when you`re already
the emperor of Antarctica?

I`m Carl Azuz penguining all day for CNN 10.
