  1. Seems like the USAF and US Army may have a little friendly competition developing. Minot is definitely on a roll, at least this round they didn't misplace 6 AGM-129 cruise missiles loaded with W80-1 Nuke Warheads for 36 hours. Here's some info from todays news; - Team USAF (represented by Minot AFB); Air Force Base Searches for Missing Machine Gun After Losing Grenades; https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/05/18/air-force-base-searches-missing-machine-gun-after-losing-grenades.html - Team US Army (represent by Fort Bliss); Military Helicopter Drops Ammo over School, Busts Hole in Roof; https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/05/18/military-helicopter-drops-ammo-over-school-busts-hole-roof.html

    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Sadly, this possible election outcome isn't going to be much of a surprise to folks here. Cleric Sadr, in surprise comeback, set to win Iraq election; https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-iraq-election/cleric-sadr-in-surprise-comeback-set-to-win-iraq-election-idUKKCN1IE096?rpc=401

    Iran Lied . . . No One Is Surprised

    President Nixon pulled the same treaty/agreement stunt as President Obama. I'm sure a few folks remember how this Nixon Treaty Gem worked out "The Paris Peace Accords, officially titled the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam, was a peace treaty signed on January 27, 1973 to establish peace in Vietnam and end the Vietnam War".

  4. No problem, MS-13 is hiring folks with their skill set. This festering story has been around for some time; Here's a similar article dated 11 April 2017; "Navy SEAL drug use "staggering," investigation finds". https://www.cbsnews.com/news/navy-seal-drug-use-staggering-investigation-finds/

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    The rumor is this puppet show was a second ceremony conducted after the official one and it was specifically for her young children? Go Navy(this happened about 8 months ago). This looks disturbing but what's the rest of the story?

    What's wrong with the Air Force?

    Possible "cover story" for this egregious shenanigan? Source; Washington Post; "The ceremony was not an official reenlistment and that the video was made for Brown’s children to watch."

    Syria strikes underway

    Some additional info; Excerpts; - Two USAF B-1B Lancers from the 34th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron launched a total of 19 JASSM-ERs. The two bombers, deployed from Al Udeid AB, Qatar, entered Syrian airspace from the south and were escorted by a USMC E/A-6B Prowler. - The first target hit was the Barzeh Research and Development Center near Damascus, which was struck by 57 Tomahawks and all 19 JASSM-ERs. - Forty Syrian surface-to-air missiles were launched blindly in defense, and only “after the last impact” of weapons launched by the US-led force. http://www.airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2018/April 2018/Syria-Strike-Marks-Combat-Debut-for-JASSM-ER.aspx

    Syria strikes underway

    Quote; "Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice, and new and “smart!" You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it! "One of these days" this type of Presidential "Smack Talk" is going to result in US Military Assets (US Ships/Bases/Aircraft/Personnel/etc) being on the receiving end of a "Preemptive Strike". POTUS please tone it down.
