Notable Quote – Lt. Col Ralph Peters (ret.)

by Skip August 10, 2017

On a piece titled “Here’s how to take out North Korea’s nukes“, this caught my eye.  I believe it to be true (emphasis mine): …I fear we’ve forgotten what war means. That fear reached a peak a decade ago when American generals blithely repeated the indefensible claim that “counterinsurgency is warfare at the graduate-school level.” […]

I guess they have a REALLY good reason to be prepping

by Skip July 30, 2017

 Japan’s Doomsday Preppers Are Buying $19,000 Bomb Shelters: North Korea’s missile launch sends demand surging.

And most of society thought that “prepping” was for eccentrics and wackos

by Skip April 17, 2017

Just thought I’d leave this here: 20+ YEARS OF FECKLESS NORTH KOREA POLICY, AND NOW: North Korea tensions have Hawaii pols revisiting emergency attack plans. “The plans were last revisited in the 1980s.

Wait a sec, I thought President Blameless was the Commander-in-Chief??

by Skip April 9, 2013

From RedState: Ever notice that this administration is only lightning-fast when it comes to shifting blame when things don’t work out perfectly? They practically left a vapor trail in their zeal to anonymously accuse the US military of being responsible for our tense situation with North Korea: So, it’s the Navy’s fault that the U.S.-North […]

by Steve MacDonald March 31, 2012

Is the average #occupier as dysfunctional as North Korea? Think about it. North Korea has no practical use.  If North Korea disappeared tomorrow and materialized on Kepler 22-b, our world would not suffer.  #Occupy, same thing. The NorKs are constantly looking for an excuse to agitate and create conflict.   #Occupy is no different.  There is […]

Difference between free market vs command-and-control economy could not be starker; why do environmentalists wish to turn us into the latter?

by Skip December 19, 2011

The big international news of the day is the death of North Korea’s despot, Kim Jong Ill (yes, the obligatory “no longer ill,  just dead”).  The Communist regime that has controlled the country since the ’40s with its Stalinist command and control can easily be seen from space at night as the image to the […]
