JTC May 12 2020 at 12:24 am How blind and stupid are we big dreamer types that we have to have a Russkie to know a Russkie when he sees one? Kafiroon May 12 2020 at 1:08 am You don’t know how lucky you are boy Back in the U.S. Back in the U.S. Back in the U.S.S.R. fortyback May 12 2020 at 2:01 am Speaking of balalaikas… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJjSEGOOOcc NotYetInACamp May 12 2020 at 2:25 am I still have my balalaika. (Made by a family friend) Sadly, my musical talent never developed. I do not play like the wind. Bill G May 12 2020 at 5:43 am Amazing. Oldarmourer May 12 2020 at 8:47 am That’s not a balalaika…THIS is a balalaika 😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOqvbEYy530 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_8_BTCPweA Mike-SMO May 12 2020 at 2:24 am Aye, ‘Toly. Moi Goombah. On the Dutch/Deutsch/Feather/Polak side of the Great River, when “The Man” in the Bully Pulpit says, “Sh*t!! Smoke over China! Incoming!”, we rally until weze can finger it all out. Maybe not well, or fur long, but to start, “Lock and load”,Chilluns.” Thought they’d’a cued you in to the “standing orders”,when they waz sneeking your tush under the fence. Capisce? You know, sort of like Rodina without the Party thugs pointing guns at our back. Just sayin’. Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 2:28 am ’91? Med cruise. Had a Kiev running simulation missile drills on our position as we inchopped. Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 2:29 am *Kirov. The Kiev class CVHG had yet to depart the black sea. Mike-SMO May 12 2020 at 2:53 am d by dah way, That government that you are all sassy about, and the “Lock and Load” is all that keep “Team Don Wanna” from working Santa Whozit’s plantation and taking French lessons so you could surrender sooner. That didn’t work in 1860-64 either. And, since youze’all haven’t noticed, all the fun stuff was done by state governors. If you don’t like it, tough. They are yours. Hey! ‘Toly. You might point out to your host (very politely) that Austin, Dallas, and Houstron are well on their way to becoming Chicago, Baltimore, and Nu Yok. As I recall, youze all allied with Virginia last time, also. Oh, and have someone check “Tinman’s” oil and batteries. Never know when there will be a long run without Uncle’s services. Them kinetic energy things that Nancy blows out her nethers can be annoying. Look what they did to Californication (Jes’ like her Daddy did to Ballimore). Maybe ‘Toly should go back to the Boss’ Bunker. He will just draw fire in Del Norte. Crap! I am out of essentials, like French Vavilla! OMG! The pop-up said I was sending 2 fast. Surely you jest. Do you have work being done by Goofus, Farcebook, or Twatter? Bill G May 12 2020 at 5:47 am I”ve gotten that ‘sending too fast’ a few times, too. It seems to me that sometimes the system registers a single click as a double. ottersmith May 12 2020 at 8:34 am Me three. I wondered if it was caused by long posts; a wait (not long, ten seconds at most, hit “post” again, all good, only one posting. Computers. Chris Muir May 12 2020 at 7:58 am Hmm… Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 2:30 am *Kirovs are missile hoses. Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 2:39 am Somewhat amused by Iran shooting its own support vessel and validating the operability of its Chinese C 802 rip-off. NotYetInACamp May 12 2020 at 2:51 am That is one way of testing. Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 2:58 am Yeah… Saratoga verified the AAA missile as an anti ship weapon. Sort of by accident. Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 3:01 am Roughly half the yeild. Oldarmourer May 12 2020 at 8:50 am 500 ton boat, made it back to port under it’s own power. This will ‘kill’ a carrier ? Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 12:51 pm Plywood?… easy. Too Tall May 12 2020 at 10:57 am Never underestimate the value of live-fire testing. The 300 May 12 2020 at 9:11 am Can’t be much of a missile if a patrol boat can limp home after being hit by it. Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 12:59 pm Not a very high yeild bird as far as ASCMs go. Got into a mental argument with myself about the kinetic energy release of a Sea Sparrow vs the one they were using. Just from mass and speed, the Sparrow packs an extra 814 million+ Joules of energy upon impact. And by definition, explosive energy is when the shock front exceeds the speed of sound. Sparrow plows in at mach 3+. The C-802 ripoff does maybe 0.9 mach tops with easily twice the warhead but a fraction of the energy release of a Sparrow. Bill G May 12 2020 at 5:49 am It’s a big country. And the statists are perfectly willing to take it piece by piece. They work long cons, and don’t give up. MAJ Arkay May 12 2020 at 9:56 am “They work long cons, and don’t give up.” Exactly what China’s strategy is. China thinks in centuries; the various US governments can barely manage a year’. Except for this statists, who have managed to strategize out fifty years or so, and here we are… NotYetInACamp May 12 2020 at 3:01 pm https://www.oodaloop.com/documents/unrestricted.pdf Unrestricted Warfare. Also available on Amazon com Part of the description: ” A sobering and fascinating study on war in the modern era, Unrestricted Warfare carefully explores strategies that militarily and politically disadvantaged nations might take in order to successfully attack a geopolitical super-power like the United States. American military doctrine is typically led by technology; a new class of weapon or vehicle is developed, which allows or encourages an adjustment in strategy. Military strategists Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui argue that this dynamic is a crucial weakness in the American military, and that this blind spot with regard to alternative forms warfare could be effectively exploited by enemies. Unrestricted Warfare concerns the many ways in which this might occur, and, in turn, suggests what the United States might do to defend itself. The traditional mentality that offensive action is limited to military action is no longer adequate given the range of contemporary threats and the … ” and it continues…. John May 12 2020 at 3:18 pm Given the right strategy we can do it too. Eisenhower’s approach to dealing with the Soviet Union reflected his skill at playing poker, and long after his death we “busted ’em up”. Everyone knows you can ruin an empire through wars, but I’m hard put to think of an instance of just plain bankruptcy doing the job. Pamela May 12 2020 at 11:56 am Where’s Grand Fenwick when you need it… Punta Gorda May 12 2020 at 6:49 pm Getting sick and tired of seeing Mike Lindell’s lying ass on TV. Bastard wraps himself in the flag bragging about his claimed American made product yet is funneling money to Egypt for the cotton for his sheets. I guess US fabric and farmers aren’t good enough for him. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
