Growing Too Fond of Our un-Terrible Wars

American Civil War General Robert E. Lee said at Fredericksburg, “It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.”

With our all-volunteer force, “surgical” strikes, ever-cooler toys of combat from drones to smart weapons to advanced aircraft, to battlefield videos all over YouTube as entertainment, we have made war no longer terrible for our nation – and have grown “too fond of it.”

To not have to fight war, to not want to fight war, we must again make war as terrible as it once was. Or we shall […]

The Debt & Defense

If we were serious about the debt, we’d stop fighting dumb wars we don’t even try to win. One policy re-adoption could save a majority proportion of half-a-trillion dollars annually ($585B in FY2016), thousands of lives of our soldiers, tens of thousands of lives of our opponents, and make the entire world a safer place.

Shouldn’t that be the goal of our defense policy?

We don’t need to continue to enrich Lockheed  and others building toys we won’t use to win combat in which we shouldn’t be involved. And if we won’t use them to win, what […]

Islam: Shooting-in the New Year

Islam. Again. Shooting up a club. Strapping a bomb on a 10-yr-old child.

The West cannot coexist with barbarism. Either we believe in Western Civilization, human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights, gay rights, science, moral progress, self government, individual liberty and the Rule of Law… OR… we allow in our midst believers in sharia and islamism who violently oppose those rights and who, with our implicit permission, treat the least among us barbarically. It’s a binary choice.

Islam is killing everyone it can reach in order to force a return to a – literal – Stone Age rule […]

What to do about Islam?

Adherents to islam are killing people at an increasing rate across a constantly-increasing geography.  The great thinkers of the West have no Plan B other than to accept this killing as the “new normal.”

Sending men with guns and jets with bombs isn’t working to stop it – and is costing the civilized world thousands of educated men and women in ground combat and in terrorist strikes across the West.

This ideology, the practitioners of which are taught by their holy book to kill all non-members, is costing the entire planet trillions of dollars that could – and should – […]

Hillary & the Neocons want War w/ Russia

I already saw this movie. It was called “Vietnam.” Are we now awaiting another “Tonkin Gulf incident” – a lie from Obama(D) or Hillary(D) just like the lie from LBJ(D) that killed 58,000 Americans (and 2M Vietnamese)?

I could not care less if these idiots ALL kill each other. Syria is of zero strategic value to the US. OTOH, Russia’s ONLY permanent warm-water port is IN Syria, so they have a serious reason to get involved. It’s ALSO on their southern doorstep.

Darwin works – ALWAYS. If nation states cannot protect and defend themselves, then that needs […]
