To those asking some version of “Does the Left WANT us attacked?” the answer often is “Yes.”
The Left hates America. They tell us this every day in every way. Why would they not want us attacked? They’re attacking us with immigrants and multiculturalism now – a nuke is faster in achieving their aim.
Contrary to what (too) many seem to think, a nuclear attack on an American city furthers Progressive goals.
Are Schumer and Pelosi publicly standing with Trump, saying, “We Americans have our policy differences, but those stop at the water’s edge; do not attack us”? No. They […]
Why would Russia not ally with Iran?
Anti-Russian Sunni are on Russia’s southern border and within the Republics of the former USSR that Putin would like to rebuild. Shia Iran would love to destroy Sunni islam and rebuild the Persian Empire. Russia would love permanent warm-water ports on the Mediterranean (Shia Syria) and the Indian Ocean (Shia Iran).

Both Foreign Affairs and CATO are writing on the issue of forward deployment of American military forces.

That kid you grew up with. You’ve known him since you can remember. His kid brother, too. First guy to get a motorcycle. Hung with the biker crowd but unfailingly polite to parents. Gave the real rowdies what for more than once.
Great athlete. First kid in your group to throw a curve ball; you remember watching his dad teach him in their back yard. The kid every other kid in the neighborhood looked up to. Dad, Navy WW2. Mom, Kentucky born & raised. Both gone now.
Off to Vail after High School to build houses all summer & ski […]
So it looks like Kim Dum Idiot is aching for war.
Here are my thoughts, FWIW. Anyone able & willing to educate me is welcome to give it a shot. But if all you want to tell me is what we CAN’T do as we sacrifice tens of thousands of our irreplaceable kids, and another few trillion dollars, on a peninsula able to defend itself, in a war 10,000 miles away that we will refuse to win… I’d say you have your work cut out for you.
Given that in conventional war the side with the most artillery tubes wins, […]
