  1. Now that the Afghanistan is over, does anybody think the 2001 and 2003 AUMFs will be repealed? AUMF reform is desperately needed so Congress can actually take some responsibility and actually vote for committing US forces to conflicts rather than abdicating all of the responsibility onto the Executive. Something that I learned from the below podcast was that the 1991 AUMF is technically still in effect and was used in part as the legal basis for committing forces to OIR in 2014. The Lawfare Podcast: AUMF Reform After Afghanistan - Lawfare (lawfareblog.com)
  2. The video of the strike is on SIPR as well for the armchair quarterbacks to made their own post-strike BDA.
  3. Initial indications from CENTCOM allude to there being large secondaries since the target was a VBIED.
  4. There has recently been a study on this Reduced Risk of Reinfection with SARS-CoV-2 After COVID-19 Vaccination — Kentucky, May–June 2021 | MMWR (cdc.gov)
  5. It'll be interesting to see what intelligence estimates assessed the crumbling of the entire ANA and Afghan government in less than 96 hours. I'm going to bet that the US and other coalition governments are going to make a deal with the Taliban to secure departure of their personnel. The issue is different than 1975 in that there isn't the threat of armored divisions bearing down on the capital. We tried to make a peace deal in 2020, let's see how much the "new" government is willing to negotiate.
  6. Or former House Speaker, John Boehner
  7. She wasn't just pre-determined she is/was. She has the most medals in international competition for any gymnast ever (male or female) on the beam, she has two floor skills named after her, and she is the first woman to win five individual all-around world championships and has not lost an individual all-around in competition in eight years.
  8. It took a while to find it because the book was buried in my HHG but maybe they're looking to bring back the glory days of the O-Club. The Minot AFB Officer's Club from Jack Broughton's Rupert Red Two:
  9. Or Grand Forks AFB. That base should have been shuttered when the tankers left. Especially now that the Global Hawk is gone.
  10. When I was at BAF they we were in the "hardened" shelters with the T-walls that were 2-3 stories tall. I was on the ground floor and thought that if any IDF came in vertical enough to hit the ground floor or collapse the whole thing, getting on the floor wouldn't help.
  11. Agree. The MC's rehearsed and test fit the MOAB drop for months before they did the thing. There already aren't enough hoses to go around in the AOR, I don't know how dynamic targeting and load planning will fit into the the MC-Js planning cycle.
  12. I'm pretty sure South Park did an episode about this 20 years ago.
  13. CF: The load master had to be woken up from his nap.
  14. "Hyper-realistic" is probably going on their OPR. In all seriousness though, unless you're using secures, preventing people from poaching your comms during training and then writing a story about it is almost impossible. The same stuff could be heard over every RF or WSINT vul, they just use the 9X callsign and "unlucky jet" rather than "midair"...and it's not over Wisconsin.
