Re: US to consider attacking Assad's forces

Could someone please explain to me what value Syria is to us aside from saving the people and keeping it out of ISIS' hands, to the point where we would even entertain the idea of going to war against a direct military ally of Russia? Forgive the language, but it basically boils down to nothing mor...

Re: Did we lose the philipianes to chinese and russian influence

Anyone remember the scene from the movie Siege of Firebase Gloria in which the Sgt. Maj. (R. Lee Ermey) and his recon teammate lob an M79 round into the freaked out and obviously insane company commander's quarters?

Re: Russia Deploys S-300VM to Syria

I believe the F-35 (and the F-22) have enough capability to get close enough to take out any S-300 variant system and survive. Granted, that doesn't mean directly overfly the positions of these systems obviously. But the combination of a 5th Generation air frame, sensors and stand-off weapons should...

Re: PRIORITY: Possible Russian Nuclear Testing (Unconfirmed)

As long as we maintain a vast arsenal of our own, the only real option any of those countries will have will be to "lose" them. If we ever field a reliable and robust missile defense system, maybe eventually we could start downsizing our own nuclear arsenal and keeping less of it on hair trigger ale...

Re: PRIORITY: Possible Russian Nuclear Testing (Unconfirmed)

If Russia continues down this path of flaunting their nuclear prowess to the world, we should take a page from Reagan's play book and bring forth Strategic Defense Initiative II. They view their nuclear arsenal as a trump card they can use to bully anyone who challenges them. Well, if they wanna pla...

Sounds like all hell is about to break loose. Numerous Twitter reports from that area talking about heavy exchanges of fire.

Heavy mortar shelling probably won't be taken lightly by India.
