    The Next President is...

    My whole family are union service job blue color Ohio/Penn democrats. Any time I open my mouth with what or why those people would possibly vote for Trump or sit out an election because of the complete scizm in the dem party toward extreme left loonacy the coastal loons all dismiss it as “your family must be racist or something.” No they were promised a bill of goods with Obama and none of it happened. Because to those people the most important thing for our government to be concentrated on isn’t social progress and global warming. It’s sound foreign policy for their deployed sons/daughters, it’s not trying to hobble manufacturing jobs through ridiculous cafe restrictions or corporate taxes, and it’s not telling s bunch of nurses if they think there are limits on when abortion becomes wrong they are evil, and it’s not telling a guy who worked as both a cop and a military officer he can’t have a gun to defend his family because he might be a mass shooter waiting to happen. Until the democractic party learns that lesson I’m more than happy to watch them get their butts kicked in the greater electorate. But it’s just easier to hit the button that dismisses loss to a person like Trump as part of some secret army of racists so they probably won’t learn anything.

    Totally enjoying the screaming and cries from the DNC because a very electable centrist Democrat might run as an independent. The smartest thing democrats could do would be tell the fringe idiots like AOC to STFU and color and put Schultz on the ballot. He’d destroy any chance Trump had at holding an electoral advantage, but no they gotta find a way to win using the hardest method possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    AF Light Air Support Aircraft

    High engine mounting etc won’t survive the requirement of something like “go to X Airbase.” We shouldn’t just stumble on to expeditionary capability, it should be designed in from the get go. We have had instances whereserious questions if C-130s could land on that field because to quote the airfield assessment guys, “sir, dirt would be safer than this asphalt.” We should ackoledge that most of our allies have spent little/nothing in infrastructure and this aircraft should be held to the same kinds of expeditionary requirement as the 130s that will be hauling their logistics tail into country.

    America.... a country where an entire half of the population are “Islamaphobic racist white nationalists,” yet 1/3 of the people we resettle as refugees under Trump are scary brown people and Muslims. I watched a movie on VICE network last night. They literally have a commercial running that is nothing but a recorded phone conversation of an illegal alien pleading how she should just be allowed in. It is entirely a point of view within the progressive Democratic Party that the mere enforcement of borders is some sort of draconian holdover and we should just allow anybody in. Those people don’t accept the idea of checked immigration much less a wall. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This may surprise you, but the warrant community is full of prior enlisted. Infantry guys are like a weird mix of fraternity and homelessness. SOF guys are that amplified. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh no, I’m a total advocate of the Gold Bond video. Also I’m a huge fan of the medicated gold bond challenge for new guys. I (and a bunch of other “POGs”) just got a good laugh out of listening to a bunch of “super hooah” Rangers/long tabs nonchalantly talk about which lotion they liked to rub on themselves prior to a road march. Like wtf guys... this is up there with some other very weird stuff you should keep to yourselves. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If we are going down this route... Diaper rash cream (the ones with a ton of zinc oxide) are apparently popular in some of the SOF circles for the inner thigh area and foot hotspots. That and body glide. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    His Twitter isn’t for anybody but his base who wouldn’t care and want to hear what they want to hear anyway, and the idiot critics who are so obsessed with everything they can’t accept about the guy that they can’t figure that part out. People actually trying to have some sort of high brow philosophical discussion on how he’s “unfit for office” and bringing evidence to the court of discussion being “well he lied about crowd size.” Seriously that’s dumber than his constant bragging and bullshit. He’s what we get for being so TMZ. This a country that votes more to select who is gonna win a reality karaoke show on TV than for the leader of the country. Guess what, it doesn’t care enough to change the channel because Trumps Twitter. Get some better ammo or get a better candidate for 2020, because otherwise this guy wins again while the Democratic Party splinters it’s self into a dozen pieces trying to find the hardest route to an easy victory by deliberately making it more difficult for themselves.

    “Combat operations in Afghanistan are over....” ”no boots on the ground....” ”we will engage in a support capacity in Libya...” i mean I guess we were all some kind of special forces or something from 2012 until 2016, because I swear I was engaged in a war that was so secret it couldn’t even be acknowledged publicly.

    Oh I know. It’s just the inevitably that’s where we end up dropping 70% of our stuff. It’d be nice if we had some sort of betterstrategy of procurement that involved buying weapons well suited for both types of conflict. It’s what avoids dumb stuff like having to half ass modify all the anti-tank Hellfires (K -> K2A) in the inventory because the war stock was prepared to shoot 20k tanks, but not the targets we were actually servicing.

    20k independent drones for 1 militant in a Coin fight is ridiculousness and excessive beyond all logic.... which is exactly why we will do it. Somebody call Raytheon! I’ve got checks they need to cash!

    The problem with the near peer fight isn’t going to be offensively overwhelming an enemy. The problem is going to be facing an enemy capable of ranging into your support zones and offensively impacting them to much the same degree of lethal results as you inflict on them. Swarm weapons with some form of semi-autonomous AI will be the 21st century equivalent of the LGB/JDAM revolution though. Even in a coin fight they just provide such a generational improvement over current limits on going kenetic. Now instead of dropping a Hellfire into a window and hoping I catch the guy, let me send a half dozen bird sized drones able to go inside said building, look around corners and stairwells and find the guy all while directing its kenetic kill to ignore the mom and her kids or going high order when they find a few of his friends in said room.
