  1. It baffles me in the day of literally carrying a device in your pocket capable of connecting you with people across the globe people still find a way to violate the first rule. Don’t crap where you eat! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Whether it’s the treat environment or the tyranny of distance or some combination of the two (look at early Syria for example), the idea that getting home after riding the silk is just a quick helicopter ride is insane. The limiting factor isn’t going to be whether we send a helicopter/tilt rotor and how current it’s SIRFC is, or whether it’s got 4th or 5th Gen support to get it in. The limiting factor is gonna be based whether or not you can keep the isolated evader alive and hidden while you crack the egg on where and how to get them. The best way you keep Joe Oklahoma fighter pilot alive 8
  3. Take a look at a few decades of UN backed humanitarian aid in places and how good a hold they have from “Truck to table” on that food. If anything it may just introduce a new form of currency. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Honestly what you guys need to be investing in is quality boots, socks, and underwear. I’ve played in the PR concept planning cell for some of these near peer/peer fights. I think reality is gonna wash out to there being too many customers and losing too many assets trying to recover the first few putting the brakes on that method of recovery. Reality is gonna be either ground/self recovery when the conflict dies down. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Or getting anything like that at altitudes above Sea Level ~ 4K. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. There are a few different communities that have a demonstrated capability in low level clandestine penetration without the gee wiz denied area equipment. This wouldn’t be an unheard of idea either historically or currently. Basically a question of break into the house like a Ninja relying completely on being unseen/unheard instead of kicking down the door. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. They did the same thing with the whole shipping temperature deal. Like without context it sounds terrifying, and that’s what most of the talking heads will feed the mass tuned into it. Every so often though you get to watch that fall apart like CNN was dumb enough to have the head of a shipping company on that they tried leading to their doom and gloom and he is sitting there like “yes we can and do routinely ship stuff like this.” Dude was polite enough about it, but basically you could tell he was lured on the segment with the idea he would get to explain this is an achievable challenge to
  8. The other major wildcard in the equation is taxable portion of your income. I’m in an office full of mid-senior grade officers where most of the guys on paper made somewhere in the 30k mark because it was all down range. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Oh yeah Bro. I mean China, you know that other major power pumping dollars and influence into the long game in Africa... They’re just clamoring at the “opportunity for investment” that is North Korea. Hence while being something like 85% of North Koreas export market (so pretty much everything but MANPADS and broken nuclear tech) they seem to be building the worlds strongest anti-refugee system along their borders. If you honestly think any economy within the G7 or otherwise wants to be the people to un-screw the 70 year old disaster of ideology and economic shortsightedness in North Korea,
  10. Had a translator denied a visa for his family off a deployment. Dude genuinely didn’t want to leave what was to him his country, but he knew after the work he did to make it better his family was in danger. I’m sure we cut him a nice “go F yourself” check in 13 as we ran out of effort on the surge and proceeded to let the bad guys retake all the ground we had worked to hard to stabilize. God only knows what happened to him, because we stopped caring after we told him he wasn’t worthy of an escape from the danger we put him in. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Really bro, you’re gonna compare investment in Africa or our trillion dollar mission creep as benchmarks of how enthusiastically people would invest in North Korea? I’ll remind you, Africa is a continent full of natural resources whose extraction and for lack of a better term exploitation has been delayed by colonial transition and easier access elsewhere making it a second option for most. Afghanistan is at least sitting in a couple trillion in rare earth elements and minerals to make the venture “worthwhile” in the long run. Our long run has been 2 decades of ery. North Korea has none of th
  12. I think a trillion is overly optimistic. And that said there’ll are we shouldering the burden alone in this. (Looking at you regional neighbors like China and Japan). Adjusted for inflation the reintegration of East and West Germany cost about 1.2 trillion between economic impact and aid packages from western economies. North Korea is far and above way behind where East Germany was to try and match to its neighbors. It would effectively be the 90s famine Somalia of Asia. And it’s next door to 3 of the worlds most important and impactful economies, 2 of which whom can’t just shut off the me
  13. Nobody is in a rush to UN-F’ck the North Korea situation. That country “waking up” and deciding integrate with the rest of the region will be an albatross around the neck of the whole of the Asian pacific rim economically. It’s a multi trillion dollar hole that will make the reintegration of Eastern Germany and the former Warsaw Pact following the fall of the wall look like picking up the check at Denny’s for your broke uncle.
