First and foremost....Welcome to SOFREP.

Concur! That "Boots on the Ground" meme we are getting pounded with daily in all this is hogwash to those who are paying attention. Great points all around.

I will have to add your reading recomendations - I am a personal fan of Jawbreaker for early Afghanistan work...fascinating stuff.

Look forward to more.

Incredible..my braincase must be working on this in the background...

Was using this little piece as a mental stretch this weekend...

http://edge.org/conversation/on-iterated-prisoner-dilemma

and now this new SOFREP article pops up...we are in the no "trust but verify" phase and are accepting that we are being forced into a situation where we get less in the trade than we want, without even knowing it.

Amazing how this rolls together.

Very good stuff Coriolanus

Damn...that smacks of Japanese suicide attacks on US armor/ships near the end of WW2.....which did not end well for the Japanese military...but the US was a much better culture for occupation...

That is what I was thinking based on some other long chats I have had with my wife's cousin in his interactions with the Germans....

Certainly sounds like you had an excellent time there - I look forward to much more!

Just cogitating on this a bit....

If the US is playing checkers to the Russian chess...is China playing 4-D chess to the rest of us?

It seems they are thinking ahead of us in time and 3-D space...

Add a little common core in there and massive anti-second Amendment propaganda in our schools and you got the next generation afraid to "hunt on the kings land"

Jack, very fascinating article....really looks like you got some great insight. Looks like the Swiss are like nobody else around. Gives me a little inside baseball on the those I occasionally work with.

Always been interesting to me that the Swiss are neutral yet guard the Pope.

Thanks for sharing.

My wife and I watched the report and are still stunned...even though we both know the details from the great SOFREP reporting that has occurred...

By the interviews the whole pair of rescue teams was even more heroic than we earlier thought...

Good Stuff C...could not agree more...

Take a csual stroll through any international conference abstracts and you will see buckets of presenters scheduled from the PRC...but they never seem to show up...

Very dangerous times with China, they are just watching everything play out in the rest of the world looking for that wrinkle to go under the armor.

Full disclosure...I have met the man and work with some of his old coworkers...

JA - The plan is to starve, eliminate via preventable disease (malaria), or abort/sterilize the unworthy.

Concur - they won't "lead us"

The thing is to starve the unworthy..atom bombs are too blatant and make for bad press....

Think Irish potatoe famine or the Indian continent famines...all driven by British malthusians...

Been convinced of the evil of progressivism for a long time (mid 90's)

Historically we did not take seriously the ranttign of madmen when they wrote it down (Mein Kampf) and ignored it when they came to power (HItler 1933)...or lost our imagination of how bad some people could be (9/11/01 - airliners as missiles)

Even worse - we swallowed the propaganda (communsm rebranding national socialism as "right wing") and ignored the genocides happening through communist controlled nations right through the slaugther of the Hmong in Laos after 1975 or the slow genocide of Zimbabwe (Carter gave us that one...) - all in the name of progressivism....

Now we have the enviro-whackos....

Check out the debates referenced in this article:

http://www.nationalreview.com/energy-week/350395/debating-phil-cafaro-robert-zubrin

Dr. Zubrin gets this progressive professor cafaro to admit that the US population should be around 100 million (the other 250 million? - that is talking about a toll 2 1/2 time the total death toll of WWII, an order of magnitude greater than the amount sent to hitlers death machine) and the world population should be 2 Billion (as for the other 5 billion or so unworthy souls......that level of killing is almost impossible for me to get my mind around)

Pure Evil

Hmmmm...for longevity the Sherman has no peer..The Isreali's turned it into a monster by 1967...brilliant mechanical design that could run for ever..nazi panzers (even the Panther) were a beast on maintenance...The Soviet T-34 is a damn close second, especially the T-34/85...

I think the best of WWII fielded is the Pershing...but pretty late to the game...direct lineage to the Queen of The Battlefield, the M1A1 Abrams....
