.. he . They actually did it ..

.. which makes for a much more dangerous world for everyone ..

.. there is only so much influence that China can have on THE DPRK . They [China] do not provide much economic support to them at all . Neither does anyone else .. North Koreans have , somehow , managed to orbit a satellite . It was not a repetition of the ham – handed klutzy stunt that the attempted the last time [about a year ago ] ..

.. may god Help us all if they figure out the ” minitureization ” question . Then they will be able to threaten everyone around the Pacific Rim , including the West coast of the U.S. , Alaska , and Hawaii ..

.. It is time to triple – time it on all phases of missile defense . In particular , due to the actions of the insanse [North Korea] and the religious lunatics [Iran]…

… The Gitmo Detainee Center bails out [#obamacraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 22nd,2016

.. the slow bug – out picks up pace …

.. will it keep going ? …

.. to be honest , yes …

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. one thing that would help is passing both a separate military appropriations bill and a separate military construction bill . Keep them away from the rest of the apropos battles …

.. that way , you can go to war with POTUS over Gitmo . Tie his hands , and force the DemoCraps hands over Gitmo , as well . It will put DemoCraps on the campaign trail on the spot , whether they like it or not . Good for them …

.. Ditto with other apropos bills . Separate them . Pass them separately . That way , you can minimize the chances of any government shutdown ….

… Quit Messing Around [#call a Spade a Spade]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 31st,2016

.. someone of substance emerges from the ” shadows . ”

.. retired Gen. Michael Flynn [former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency] was testifying before Congress the other day . You think that he would not be political . Well , you would be wrong . Not overtly , mind you . But he mounted the parapets and let the guns open fire at the ObamaCraps …

.. Flynn called for a reorganization of our war effort against the Islamic militant threat . He called for a joint international effort , similar to N.A.T.O. . That was not all , to say the least …

.. to quote General Flynn …

The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency slammed the Obama administration on Monday as “well intentioned” but paralyzed and playing defense inits the fight againstIslamic militancy.Recently retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn called for the U.S. to lead the charge in a sweeping, decades-long campaign against the Islamic State group, al Qaeda, and its ilk—a fight like the one against the former Soviet Union—against a new enemy he said is “committed to the destruction of freedom and the American way of life.”

“There is no substitute, none, for American power,” the general said, to occasional cheers and ultimately a standing ovation from a crowd of special operators and intelligence officers at a Washington industry conference.

He also slammed the administration for refusing to use the term “Islamic militants” in its description of ISIS and al Qaeda.

“You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists,” Flynn said.

He said the administration is unwilling to admit the scope of the problem, naively clinging to the hope that limited counterterrorist intervention will head off the ideological juggernaut of religious militancy.

“There are many sincere people in our government who frankly are paralyzed by this complexity,” said Flynn, so they “accept a defensive posture, reasoning that passivity is less likely to provoke our enemies.”

Flynn refused to name President Obama as the focus of his ire in comments afterward to The Daily Beast, saying that he was simply “sending a message to the American people.” But the comments show the widening rift between some in the national-security community who want to see more special-operations and intelligence assets sent into the fight against ISIS and other groups in Syria and beyond.

… Mad Vlad is Having a Fit [#US][#Allied missile defense]..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 21st,2016

.. temper , temper , Vladimir . You should know better ..

.. the missile defense sites being built in Central Europe are fairly small in size . They are oF no strategic threat to Russia . None ..

.. They are aimed at any possible missile programs and / or missiles that might come out of the Middle East . They are not there to deal with Russia , not in the least ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..

.. you would need something far larger , more comprehensive , and much more sophisticated to deal with the potential threat from Russia’ s ICBMs

… So What is the US Navy Doing ?? [#military posture]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 21st,2016

.. playing tiddlywinks ?? ..

.. recently , while on a deployment cruise in the Baltic Sea , a US Navy guided missile destroyer [a DDG] was ” buzzed ” by a Russian Sukhoi Su – 24 fighter bomber . No , the Sukhoi was not on a training run . It meant business ..

.. It was configured in a war – like posture . No , it did not have training ” shots ” for missiles on itS RAils . It was set up on a war posture ,with war shots set FOR action on its rails ,ready for action ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. so what was the destroyer doing ? Nothing , apparantely . It did not even lock on with its guided missile radar ..

.. its CO should be court – martialed for failing to take any defensive action to protect his command . You let an adverrsary get thatclose to your ship like that , and what happens ?

.. You are dead meat ..

… Mr. Cheney pulls no Punches [#national defense]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 14th,2014

.. especially where it comes to national security .

.. his full – throated defense is very , very welcome . It comes on the offensive after the libelous attack on our nation ‘ s security by the so – called Senate Select Cmte on ” Intelligence . ” …

.. he dropped the hammer especially on the grossly irresponsible Senate majority in carrying out and releasing the report . It was $40 million dollars that was not just wasted . It was money that was grossly misused in an attempt to carry out a partisan narrative , one that was thinly vieled and hardly even transparent …

.. I put it that way because those idiots have put everyone [at home , and abroad] in mortal danger . Even more so are the folks who devote their lives and careers to our nation ‘ s security and our nation ‘ s defense , namely , the intelligence services . It is not just the CIA that has been damaged . The whole intelligence community has been badly hurt by the irresponsible conduct of this Senate Committee in revealing what they did and how they did it …
