  2. You mean like this shit? https://www.newsweek.com/us-military-defends-drag-show-largest-training-center-essential-morale-1603864
  3. I hate those things, and they are marginally effective unless the walls of the briefing room are shielded/tempested. However, a design like this would work better than the ones I usually see (small lockers) if it had individual doors... https://www.amazon.com/Lzttyee-Wall-Mounted-Aluminum-Security-Classroom/dp/B07S819DGM?th=1
  4. It was simply about occupation. As longer we sat there, the longer the Taliban insurgency was kept somewhat in check. We were never going to change the inevitable, I am pretty sure everyone realized Afghanistan wasn't "a problem to be solved but a fact to be endured." It wasn't an unexpected ending. Just ask the Soviet Union...but look what happened to them shortly after they left!
  5. Yep, he was being treated for multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer that prohibits the body’s ability to fight infections. He had a history of prostate cancer as well. It's also alleged he was suffering from Parkinson's disease. By the way, people still die from the flu despite being vaccinated for it. CDC studies show flu shots reduce the risk of illness by between 40% and 60% among the overall population during seasons when most circulating flu viruses are well-matched to those used to make flu vaccines. Even the CDC admits some people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will still get sick because no vaccine is 100% effective. But as we know in Powell's case, he had comorbidity issues...
  6. Yeah, you'll need a Facebook account to watch, but it's worth it! https://www.facebook.com/b17TexasRaiders/videos/4621187134603306 Here's a screen shot...
  7. My compliments to both of you! It's nice to see some civility on here!
  8. Major Construction Underway At Three Of China's Airbases Closest To Taiwan "China is upgrading three airbases located opposite Taiwan, boosting its airpower capability in an already tense region that is flush with air combat capabilities. Construction of the new infrastructure began in early 2020 and continued uninterrupted through the pandemic, underlining its priority. The work at the Chinese air force's bases at Longtian, Huian, and Zhangzhou, all of which lie between 100 and 200 miles from Taiwan, give it an enhanced forward presence near the Taiwan Strait. This, when coupled with the flurry of flights through Taiwan’s ADIZ, all appear to be in line with Beijing’s evolving aggressive posture towards the island nation..."
  9. Yep, we had the same issue when going TDY to Alaska in August. Not only were cars tough to find, they were also quite expensive!
  10. Well, to be fair, about a third of Colorado, over half of New Mexico and even some of Kansas, Oklahoma and Wyoming were Texas at one point; so we're just taking back territory...

  12. It's that time of year again!
  13. ADMIN NOTE: No, we're not cool with it. In fact, I just removed several posts that violated the rule of keeping things civil. Consider this a fair warning to all involved, KIO on the personal attacks as the next time I see such posts I will do more than just remove them. Either stick to the topic at hand, or move on to other threads; but there will be no more warnings!
