Re: Breaking: The US Justice Department announces a warrant for the seizure of the Iranian oil supertanker Grace 1, one

Tit-for-tat is an amateurs game. Going full blown Stuxnet however, is a game ender. Unless of course, there's something/someone of intelligence value on that tanker.

Re: China is sending troops to Hong Kong border August 13, 2019

So let's say that China invades Hong Kong. What will the US do? Nothing. I think the bigger question is what will we do if/when China decides to pull the same stunt with Taiwan? Will we park our Navy near the island in advance as a show of force? It'd be grounds for a shooting war between our navies.

Hum, reduce the mass ... inertia .... reduce the effects or gravity. Anti gravity tech? Google recent Tucker Carlson interview of retired DOD person describing “non-terrestrial” tech the military has been observing for several decades. As well as the US Navies new reporting and tracking procedures ...

Re: Russian and US warships 'nearly collide' in 'dangerous' and 'unsafe' manoeuvring

They will always be distrustful to a degree. If for no other reason Russians risk of being invaded over resources There's no way any Russia/China alliance will stick. They might give the appearance of being allied, but they fear and distrust one another almost as much as they fear and mistrust the ...

Re: Delivery s400 to Turkey

Turkey has been in Russia's orbit for a few years now. Russia will eventually take the oil/ME countries by soft occupation, Turkey will eventually be kicked out of NATO. Write em off now, it'll be easier for us in the short and long term. The U.S. is hoping that someone will take out Erdogan and re...

In the long run this is much ado about not much. I disagree. They're bro's apparently. Xi's words, not mine. W...

Re: Iran/US Tensions #5/22/19

This is the ME, so things aren't as they appear. The two countries butting heads aren't Iran and the US, they're Iran and Saudi Arabia. We are bringing in resources for force projection, to back up our allies and attempt to stabilize the region. This becomes an Iran/SA fight, as it has been the last...

Re: Interesting article on Russia’s S-400 system.

Seems accidents at sea make for good cover if true. Key component of Russian S-400 system enabling them to track and engage US F-22’s and 35 were damaged in a storm off the coast of England. Therefore making this S-400 system non-effective against US stealth. Thwarting Chines efforts to neutralize ...
