When a nation finally decides that violence against an adversary has become the only way to alter their behavior, such as stopping constant attacks on their citizens for decades regardless of interventions & opportunities for peace, etc., – politics by other means – then that violence must be delivered with maximum lethality, speed & productivity.
The more adversaries one can kill quickly, the sooner the violence stops, the fewer the total casualties & the more quickly a peaceful end-state is reached. The more productive the weapons used, the fewer that die – on BOTH sides – to achieve […]
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). Put an Iranian ally in charge of that? Why not? By foolishly destroying Iraq, an ignorant America destroyed the only regional opponent capable of stopping Iran.
Together Russia & Iran can rid the region of Sunnis; doing so is in […]
Two of my three kids were born in the mid-1990s. America – the country that defeated the two most modern and powerful military forces in history, across the entire planet, on land, sea and air, in 3-1/2 years – has been in ground combat with illiterate, unorganized, untrained, ill-equipped savages for nearly their entire lives.

The military has an agenda which is not the same as the nation’s, yet since Kuwait, in some psychological quest to put Vietnam behind us, we Boomers are turning too far toward it.
The entire Right and half the Center is good with maximizing the presence of 4-stars in a civilian administration. Why? They have hammers – every single problem is going to be a nail. Not a Marshall among them. Not an Eisenhower. Not a Pershing. Just a buncha wannabe Bradleys who want to fight until it gets too hard […]
A young German woman on her way to work nonchalantly is pushed in front of an oncoming train in Berlin – murdered. Pedestrians are run down and killed in the street in Britain. France. Australia…
And muslims “fear backlash.”
They ought to fear backlash – not from what our governments will do – but what Western governments should do, and what the citizens of the West MUST do for the West to survive. That they do NOT fear backlash is the problem.
There will be only one winner in this clash. If one looks across history one finds […]
