    The Next President is...

    We can’t, and we are. this is preceisly why open minded debate is so important. By the way, we’ve never had a public reckoning with past scientific certainties that turned out false: I recall being taught that acid rain would destroy crops by 1990 and the world would starve. How about that hole in the ozone layer 80s kids were forced to fear? “Every expert agrees this scary thing will happen soon, no time for questions, do what we say now!” has been a progressive TTP for a long time. Listening to each other politely and crafting arguments that convince is hard. Squashing disagreement and ordering compliance via fiat is easy. Which method would you prefer to be used on you?

    What is right with the Air Force

    Very telling that a “what’s right with the AF” thread quickly sank into stories of what’s wrong. The organization is broken, and no one below O-6 is causal. Some are contributing.

    Afghan Caravan (208) 365

    Yes. Everyone has different circumstances resulting in different calculations.
  4. I bet if we deleted the NAF and the Group, everything would work just fine.

    TSgt John Chapman MoH saga

    Excellent article by Naylor, thanks for posting. From senior levels to line operators, SEALs have behaved in a disgraceful manner regarding this incident. Truly shameful. No one would question their honor for making a tough call under fire and later finding out they’d been wrong. Shit happens, we get it. But they have blocked recognition for Chapman, and even gone back and changed their stories to shit on the guy because they couldn’t face facts: they left our man behind. Those few who have seen the AF product will tell you evidence for the USAF version is overwhelmingly convincing. Edited to add: for those unfamiliar with the author, he has written extensively on Anaconda and is respected by SOF leadership. Bottom line, credible dude, not a hack, worth reading the long article.

    1,000 Retired Pilots Can Be Recalled to Active Duty

    Huggy if you come back on AD you should try your hand on a different aircraft. We’d love to have you in AFSOC.

    Promotion and PRF Information

    There is a lot of misunderstanding about joint jobs. They are mostly bad for a career in the AF unless timing and luck are on your side. Unless you’re a BTZ on your way to higher rank, I encourage folks to stay away from joint billets as O4/O5s (exception- if there’s a really cool job you want, go do it).

    B-1 Landing at Midland

    Damn, badass!
  11. CH are you sure? I thought his board was later this year after his change of command. Duck, no numbered AF in AFSOC.

    I agree in principle with the sentiments of your post. Except this part above. I’m not sure what you would consider a “credible claim” so I will share this article and allow everyone to draw their own conclusions. I think my characterization was fair, and you should acknowledge that the assembled SC team is disproportionately full of democratic donors with a history of working for partisan democratic causes. Whether or not they can set aside personal opinions and remain objective is up for debate, I don’t know. That his team is comprised exclusively of partisan Democrats is a fairly straightforward statement.

    Did you read your own link? Those charges aren’t related to trump “collusion” with Russia during the 2016 campaign. Your link answers your question- those folks were indicted for pre-campaign shenanigans unrelated to the reason a special council was originally authorized. I don’t care. So yea, one year and zero evidence of the original claims that opened this SC.

    The above statement is exactly how I feel about the Russian collusion narrative. A year of hardcore investigation by a special council filled with partisan democrats has produced zero evidence the Trump campaign colluded or conspired with Russia to win the election. How much longer should the nation endure the Mueller probe?

    Pilot Shortage Deepens, USAF is SCREWED.

    Stitch, sounds like the young man in question should dump the current wife and find a more attractive one that supports his dreams of living dangerously. Alternatively, keep current wife and allow her to maintain the fiction that he makes only 650$ a month. It’s all technique. Good luck!
