Re: Emergency Action Plans for DEFCON Levels

Don’t forget a good machete, the longer reach is intimidating and their useage is more straight forward than a hawk. Hawks need to strike targeted areas correctly to be effective. Glad you found it useful! I have a .22 air rifle, complete with scope and laser. Do not underestimate the fear that putt...

Re: China drills the East China Sea.

I’ve been curious as to why The PRC has decided now is a good time to up the stakes in the SCS and apparently chosen to play hard ball now, at least on the face of it. People and nations decide to change cource or enact changes in plans for several reasons. 1 Simply the time or conditions previously...

Re: Venezuela?

Tyrants can dominate and destroy a nation and people at very little capital outlay, bullies and bullets are cheap. Their only real cost is human life and freedom. Removing them has proven much more expensive for everyone. I have always believed that IF we as a nation are going to engage in nation bu...

Re: Revealed: The U.S. military's 36 code-named operations in Africa

My initial thought when I first learned about africacom was oil and gas reserves.
My second thought was both Islam and China’s expansion.

Seems like we’re always moving into take over for the failed colonial ambitions of Europe.
Thoughts?

Re: Venezuela?

Of course. Maduro has insulated himself. The problem is, there isn't really anything anyone can do that won't affect the population as a whole. So the alternative is to do what? Nothing? It's harsh, but even an invasion will affect the population. What the US is doing is the lesser of two evils. Ma...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Notre Dame Cathedral In Paris On Fire

The annoying thing in the reporting was the immediate effort by all the networks to make sure they reported it wasn’t terrorism. Of cource it remains to be seen if accident or arson and we should all hope for a through open investigation. They all were just tripping over themselves to refute even ho...

Re: China think tank belive US, China ‘at greater risk of military incidents’ in South China Sea

It’s like they are intent on demonstrating they can be as imperialist as the colonial powers were. This is a problem China is going to face in the future. With their predatory loans and confiscation of collateral, the people in those countries are going to feel the same way they did about any other...

Re: China think tank belive US, China ‘at greater risk of military incidents’ in South China Sea

I like the bit about the US exploring the grey area between peace and war. China’s ignored every international norm regarding international boarders even going so far as to rewrite history books to sell it at home. Most of the South China Sea their trying to claim as their own is international water...
