Is North Korea aiming to attack America? Or is this misdirection? Looking at America or American colonies (Guam) as Rocket Man’s target may be entirely wrong.
Putting aside the mistake Japan made at Pearl Harbor – a small attack they thought was the mere shooing-away of an almost militarily insignificant non-combatant trying to interfere in their years-long creation of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (that resulted in the annihilation of two of their cities, the loss of millions of Japanese lives and the destruction of their country as an effective polity) – centuries have passed since the last attack […]
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. They have no recollection of an America not at war.
This is shameful.
My dad was born in 1912, raised a Quaker, and fought in the Pacific Theater of WW2. Why? He was an American. My mom was born in 1930, orphaned at 5, raised […]
“Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” Ronald Reagan.
Nothing has changed.
Here is a column from an LA Times columnist. In it the columnist displays his ignorance by showing how much of what he knows … just isn’t so.
“They have both [Trump and Cruz] suggested that intensified U.S. bombing can win the war. (It can’t.)” I guess he thinks that round-the-clock heavy bombardment of oil fields, ball bearing factories, tank factories, arms factories, ammunition factories, truck factories, rocket factories, gunpowder factories, rail and […]
WW2 was won by obliterating Cologne, destroying Berlin, burning down Dresden and Tokyo, and annihilating Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Until the West vaporizes Mecca & Medina we will continue to experience Paris on a regular basis. FACT.
Our kids will continue to be killed by savages. Our young adults will refrain from bringing new children into this scary, violent, jihadist world – and our civilization will die.
Wars are WON by killing the enemy IDEOLOGY, be it NAZIism, Imperial Japan or Islam. By showing its adherents that it has been utterly defeated, squashed like a bug.

What’s happening is a changing of the guard.
Just as when Britain overtook Spain as the biggest empire, and when the USA overtook Britain post-war. The difference is that these previous empires were built in greed and religion (Spain, Catholicism) or were essentially an updated version of their predecessor (America replacing Britain mercantilism – which replaced Dutch mercantilism.) And, of course, that technology has changed the world in fundamental ways – and a global empire now really can be just that. But it will remain mercantilist.
At minimum it will impact global reserve currencies with unknown, but probably negative, impacts […]
