Saber Rattling and Hollow Shell

The US is talking about making some B52s nuclear capable again. The ten bombers had been “denuked” in compliance with nuclear treaties with Russia. This is nothing more than bullshit saber rattling. It will take years, and will not make a difference. Not only that, but the Air Force admits that it no longer is capable of putting nuclear bombers on alert, because it just doesn’t have the men or equipment. Of course, this makes one wonder what use is an Air Force that can’t take to the air to employ force, but that is a different discussion.

The Navy chose to flex its nuclear muscles by having an E6 Mercury and an Ohio class missile submarine sail around in full view of the Russians off the coast of Norway. The message is clear- we have nukes, and they are at your back door. At that range (less than 1200 miles), missiles fired from that submarine would detonate over Moscow in less than 8 minutes. Not nearly enough time to react.

The Navy only has the capability of the Nuclear ballistic missile submarines for nuclear weapons at sea. Ever since the first President Bush pulled the nukes from the rest of the fleet. The personnel and equipment needed to put nukes back on to the rest of the Navy just no longer exists. Our carriers, attack submarines, and surface ships just do not have the ability to maintain or carry nuclear weapons. Nuclear armed Tomahawks and carriers with nuclear weapons just don’t and can’t exist in today’s US Navy.

Now consider that the Navy doesn’t even require its sailors to pass a physical fitness test any longer.

So for the US, it’s use ballistic missiles or nothing. Our military is an overly expensive, hollow shell that can’t accomplish many of its core missions. Any war against a near peer adversary is therefore likely to end with the exchange of strategic nuclear weapons as our military gets its ass handed to them.

First Shots

The first shots have been fired directly between US and Russian forces. The Russians have declared the entire Black Sea to be a “no fly zone” and have just shot down a US RQ-4 Reaper drone.

No DELTA Doesn’t Have a License to Kill

A utility worker was taking pictures of power lines in an area of rural NC when he was shot four times by a property owner who also happens to be a member of Delta force. The man was shot in the hand, the back, and then a final kill shot to the face. He was unarmed at the time he was shot. The man shot was from Chechnya. Other details are sparse.

There are some morons on social media claiming that Delta has permission to kill anyone taking photos of them or their families because “national security” demands that maintaining the secrecy of the identities of Delta and their families is of utmost importance. That’s nonsense. Shooting an unarmed man in the back before walking up and delivering the coup de grace to the face is not self defense, and no, the US military doesn’t have an unlimited license to kill people who are taking pictures of them.

Such a policy would be a violation of the Constitutional rights of the people being shot.

Not only that, but killing an enemy agent without interrogating him first is poor doctrine from an intelligence standpoint, so killing him wouldn’t be the smartest thing to do. Capturing and questioning him for intelligence is the smarter move.

No, this guy can’t excuse executing someone. Whether or not he gets protected by the government is another matter entirely, but this certainly looks like murder to me, judging by the sparse facts that are available.

The last thing we want is for government agents to have a license to kill by simply declaring “national security because Delta force, bitch.” Everyone has due process rights. In the absence of exigent circumstances like self defense, no one has the right to kill anyone else, not for national security reasons or any other similar ninja bullshit.

Dry Run, or Actual Attempt?

Two people inside a box truck tried to force their way onto Quantico Marine Corps Base. Multiple sources report one of the individuals inside the truck is a Jordanian foreign national who recently crossed the southern border into the U.S., and that one of the occupants is on the U.S. terrorist watch list.

Two days after the incident at Quantico, a vehicle crashed into an outer perimeter gate of the White House in Washington, D.C., resulting in the death of the driver. 

Less than a week earlier than the Quantico incident at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek–Fort Story in Virginia on Sunday, April 28, a driver attempted to breach security protocols at the installation’s gate and crashed into a the vehicle denial barricade. (I used to live less than a mile from that gate, on Pleasure House Road.)

Sad Day

It is with profound sadness that we report that Lou Conter, the last survivor of the USS Arizona has passed away at his home in Grass Valley, California. Surrounded by family in his final hours, Lou lived a long and distinguished life. Fair winds and following seas Lou.

The muster for the crew of the USS Arizona is now complete. The WW2 generation is slowly leaving us.

Whites Aren’t Buying It

All branches of the US military have been reporting that they are falling short in their recruiting goals, and they have been trying some pretty spectacular stunts to get more recruits. It seems that the Military’s recruiting woes are due to whites not enlisting.

A total of 44,042 new Army recruits were white in 2018, but in 2023 that had fallen to 25,070. That represents a drop of over 19,000 recruits per year. With the Army having a shortfall of more than 10,000 enlistees in its recruiting target, it’s plain to see that it is a lack of white candidates that is the reason.

It seems that whites, and specifically white males, are tired of being told that they are the enemy, that they are racist, and they have decided that they don’t want to sacrifice their lives to defend people and a nation that despises them.

Third World

As I have posted before, the US military will obey orders to attack Americans. The only good news here is that this is what the US Army is becoming:

That’s why they are begging the guys who were kicked out for failing to get the jab to return. The left thinks that having guns is all that is required to win. It isn’t just the possession of guns, it’s the will and the knowledge to use them, as well as the ability and determination to do whatever it takes. A bunch of barracks soldiers who won’t do their jobs isn’t going to be up to the task.

This is a third world type of military, one which is only good enough for intimidating and massacring a bunch of unarmed civilians. They surely will have a hard time beating an armed and determined foe.
