    Col Matrix would surely smile.

      So would Slim Picken’s Major “King” Kong from Stanley Kubrick’s “Doctor Strangelove: Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb’!

      • jackdeth72

        Sorry… Pickens’

      • tomstockton

        I was just thinking — he needs a cowboy hat!

        GREAT movie!!

        • jackdeth72

          True.

          And Kubrick got in trouble with the FBI for making the set for the front end of the B-52 just a bit too real looking and close to home in regards to electronics, switches and black boxes for the Fed’s liking.

  • KenH

    Shooting the miserable old bastard in the face and skull seven times would be way cheaper

  • Bill G

    Cheaper, but not nearly as much fun to contemplate.

  • Nice pun, there, CM. Do I get butter and jam with it?

  • CuriousB

    I love the humor, but has anybody noticed that Trump does what he wants to do and gives little concern to his detractors? Kim Jung Un better pay attention.

    • Southpaw

      Can you imagine a President Cruz, Rubio or Kasich doing the same? i don’t either.

  • Southpaw

    I predict that if the Trump even thinks about initiating hostilities against the Republic of North Korea, Kim will unleash a savage wave of merciless revenge unseen in the D-Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy*

    *(NOTE: The Milky Way Galaxy has four spiral arms: A, B, C, and D. We are located in the D-Arm. I cannot speak for the other three)

    • JTC

      Not sure you speak for D either Southpaw…

      That little pustule won’t unleash shit if a moab drops on his ass.

      Remember the munchkins dancing and singing in the streets of oz when the house dropped on the bitch witch of oz? Yeah, something like that is what will be unleashed in NoKo.

      Even China will be relieved when that happens; Trump has been setting up that “deal” with Xi for the last week or so.

    • Old Codger

      Kim will unleash a savage wave of merciless revenge unseen in the D-Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy

      I certainly hope you were being ironic there, Lefty. That little pissant tinpot dictator has very little with which to inflict his “revenge”. There are enough US Navy assets in the area to sink his entire navy in jig time. If he crosses the DMZ, the ROK will most definitely not “welcome him with open arms”. The ROKAF are all merciless, highly trained and skilled killers. They do not take attempted incursions from the north lightly. If Kim decides to attack Japan, he’ll damned well find out that while Japan has neither an Army, a Navy nor an Air Force, their Self-Defense forces (land, air and sea) are more than able to step on Kim like the dog turd he is. I suspect JTC is correct regarding arrangements with China. There was a time when NK was sufficiently useful to China for it to back NK up. I suspect those days are past.

      • JTC

        OC, good catch ie Southpaw = Lefty.

        I guess that means that by the D-Arm, he meant The “D” Arm.

        Heh.

        • Old Codger

          Hey! BEING a “southpaw” myself I know what it means. LOL I figured you’d catch the reference. Some people DON’T catch it when someone makes a sidewise reference to their nom d’ net. On youtube the other day, I addressed a guy styling himself “THIS N THAT WITH TIM” as “TNTWT”. He actually asked me what “TNTWT” meant. When I replied that it could mean “THIS N THAT WITH TIM”. “Yes?” “No?” “Maybeso?” He replied that he didn’t know so that was why he asked. Another nitwit jumped in on how I was being an ass for not just answering the dumb cluck’s question. I finally let him off the hook by coming out and telling the moron (and, yes, I actually called him a moron) that it was an acronym for his screen name. He called me a couple of choice words (none of which could be used on either broadcast TV or radio) and told me he wasn’t gooing to answer me any more. What do you think? Was I outta line or is he a dim bulb?

        Better check up on the “missing” 50 submarines that were sent out from the NORKs. Nobody could find them. Picture a few off the USA coast(s) with various types of nukes. (Torpedo or maybe vertical launch type.) They would not need much range.

        • Rick

          diesel electrics run quiet when you bottom them out and shut down the generators. But they aren’t moving. When they move, they’re detectable by our assets which get better the closer you get to the coast. Hiding within someone else’s national waters where it’s shallow is a lot different than hiding close to home. Try to rest a Nork sub in the deeper parts of the Pacific and it’s crushed tin can time.

        • Old Codger

          They’re obsolete Chinese diesel electric tubs that our subs can detect and track half an ocean away. The NORKS could not get within 1,000 miles of a U.S. coast before they were detected. If they failed to heed the warning to stand down they would be quietly be sunk. I have watched as ROKAF aircraft (F-86s in immaculate condition) took out NK “fishing boats” trying to infiltrate. I was in the Tower at Kunsan AB in 80 babysitting a new piece of comm gear. When the ROKAF guys overflew them they pointed to the stern and acted like they had steering gear trouble. Even after each of the ROKAF birds stitched a seam in front of them with the 6 .50s the 86 carried in their noses the NK boats kept coming. The ROKAF controller told them they were “weapons free” and each of the 86s launched a pair of StG rockets at the boats. Next time the radar came around, the would be infiltrators were missing on the radar screen. It was February and the Yellow Sea is frigid that time of year.

          • Kafiroon

            Tell me again why they could NOT be found.

          • Deplorable B Woodman

            THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE!!!!
            I was in Korea 85-86, but not near the border.
            I heartily approve of this message.

  • Pamela

    I like it when things go boom. Such pretty lights. Especially if the bad guys are hiding along with their stuff.

  • NotYetInACamp

    Slim Pickins did the drop with more style. And Slim’s was nuclear.

    “Where’s Sen McCain? I haven’t seen him since the Afghanistan incident.”

    “I don’t know where he is. Haven’t seen him at all. It’s like he just dropped out of sight.”

    • Bill

      “Dropped out of sight? Well, that’s him all over.”

      • Bill G

        Dammit, Bill G, not claiming Bill’s name here.
        Just clumsy on the keyboard this A.M.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    “Songbird”? (second panel, on the bomb, left side).
    In Juan McPain’s case, more like a rusty crow dressed as a stool pigeon.

    BTW, did the bomb in Dr Strangelove have a “name”?

    • tomstockton

      According to IMDB:

      “In the novel by Peter George the two H-bombs are named “Hi There!” and “Lolita”. Two years earlier, Stanley Kubrick directed Lolita (1962). The graffiti on the second bomb is “Dear John”. Slim Pickens once owned a horse named Dear John. “

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    The neocon, war hawk, disgraced pilot, “hero”, finally gets his wish.

  • AlphaMike

    Sorry if it’s obvious to everybody else but I’m not getting why McCan’t is depicted with that red splotch on his face.

  • Actually thought of Major Kong riding the big one. But then again, he had Kong-sized balls. McCain, now? Not so much.

  • It would be fun to watch McPain’s head explode.

  • jackdeth72

    *Sigh*

    If only it wewr true!

    • Pamela

      You would need to ask Lily and I think she’s tired…

  • Dread

    McCain, long ago, should have gone home to sit down and “do the Google”. And, left the business of the world to the grownups. Perhaps an occasional play date could be set up for him with his pal, Flimsy Ghramnisty. Flimsy could wear his skirt when they go over to visit Granny Ginsburg.

  • idahobob

    This would be the perfect way to send mclame, the traitor, off to his just rewards!

    • Ozymandias

      God, that was such a wonderful film.. pure genius.

  • Special_Ed

    I hope Trump or his minions read this:

    Instead of sending 59 or 60 $1.5M Tomahawks at an airfield, why not send ONE inexpensive (~$100k) highly accurate inert bomb [like JSOW BLU-1xx] (replace explosive material with concrete) into Assad’s palace. It worked to change attitudes when Reagan bombed Khadaffi’s tent.

    • NotYetInACamp

      The airport bombing was a strategic move. No casualties appear intended with the lead time.
      It was a wake up call to all parties involved. It has other purposes than just the bombing of the airfield.

      Then getting deeper. Look at the layers in bombing the airfield in catch-22. Similar. Not the same. Possible.

      • Erik

        Exactly. I’m not a Trump fan at all, but I hold out the possibility that this was a not entirely idiotic move – it lets Trump and Putin have a public tissy fit so that the Progressive version of the Birther movement (that Trump is a Putin puppet) shuts up, and it gets the attention of the North Koreans, the Chinese, and the Iranians.

        Still, playing even low-stakes world power poker with nuclear-armed countries is extremely questionable.

        • Old Codger

          I guarantee this won’t shut the progs up. The only way to for sure shut a prog up involves either rope or rifles.

  • Spin Drift

    They are called Kinetic Energy devices and are guided rocks at max velocity. If you know the 3d coordinates of the target you can put it in their left ear. Not much collateral damage but everything in the immediate surroundings is having a bad day.

    Spin
    8 miles high and falling fast

    • John D. Egbert

      Thinking of “The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress.” KEWs (rocks) won Luna’s bid for independence. Don’t think one could achieve 17k mph launched from an air-breathing vehicle but mass can make up a lot of difference for lower velocity. Could be an interesting experiment.

      • NotYetInACamp

        Kinetic machines in orbit? U never know. Rail guns?

  • JCTPatriot

    Someone on another blog said, “Trump just painted the inside of those tunnel walls with Islamic jam.”

    I just had to share it with you.

  • Erik

    I’ve been saying for years: John McCain’s release as a POW is the most complete form of North Vietnamese revenge for the war. He’s done more to fuck up this country than their military ever did. The guy is batshit insane. He should go back to playing the alcoholic XO on the Battlestar Galactica reboot.
