@lynngnu good point on extrapolation....though I hate to even get into the body count thing....I wonder if it's better to hunt for effectives lost...similar to losses in technicians running advanced weapons...foreign pilots lost in Biafra...Old China hand Japanese pilots lost at Coral Sea/Midway....that sort of thing....

The easiest way to hurt these clowns is in the pocketbook...don't buy their garbage, ignore their rantings...moore made his bones by lying about the Columbine HS murders and the progressive lapdogs ate it up...(liam neeson hit that spot as well for us....)

Well - The ice ring of hell will be their final place for betraying her benefactors.

@JHR130 That he was - his work on base bleed and caliber extension was elegant in its simplicity. The ballisticians I worked with years ago from EXPRO and Somchem that likely intereacted with him were very cagey and not forthcoming about him at all...which is good I guess since some of those in the USA who did interact went to jail as well as he...

His Magnum-Opus though is a theoretical assessment of the Paris Kanonen in relation to his own HAARP program...in there you can see the genesis of the Iraq Babylon gun...

One of my bucket list things is to actually touch one of the HAARP guns...either in Barbados, the Yuma Proving grounds..or if it still exists the 120 caliber hypervelocity test piece up on his old range straddling Vermont and Quebec...

Excellent point and thanks JHR...I actually own all the books on Dr. Bull..it looks like this book references what was in there....

BTW - Bull was an awesome ballistician...totally let his morals go and looks to have paid the price for it.

Hmmmmmm...interesting timing. I will have to put it in my list....

Any hints on the hit of Dr. Gerald Bull in the book? Seems to be one of those well known "secrets" that would be good to get more data on...

Thanks for the recommendation.

Good write-up Jack...I noticed a good stack of the book at my local Costco and am debating to just buy it there or go out to smile.amazon.com and drop some cash into RCF when I get it...

I imagine your scars were earned outside the gaming fields.....though I have picked up a tick over a hundred stitches in my face...amazing that a slash to the head sounds just like the movies through your skull...and bleeds like a mutha....always seemed to have my head in the wrong place....

Now some awesome no s$&t, there I was scar stories from 6 would be a bonus to the SOFREP faithful.....

Amen 6!!! Acquired my largest stitch/scar series the day I met my wife....big Kiwi lock was offended on my rucking him out the back of a ruck with my cleats so he retaliated with a punch that split my entire face/forehead open...must have been endearing to my future wife who was watching on the sidelines in the snow....

Best wound ever!!! Let me meet an awesome lady....

Excellent points YP - I can personally attest to super glue use in Canada...got my face glued back together in 1992 during a rugby game, right on the pitch, in Vancouver....took seconds during the minute granted to stop me bleeding....pretty nasty scar though....

Awesome 6!!! I am a monster optimist for sure...technology can get us where we need to evolve, the progressive state is evil Cuz it goes against the greatness of the individual....

Very interesting post....

One item on decentralization of power ( and industry) ...

Once a critical mass is reached where technology upgrades and findings can no longer be supported due to decentralization the chaos will expand exponentially as people get hungry...what the NGO's do not realize is that are living off the advances from nation states...a feudal society can not support much beyond its fiefdom...and the carnage as the world adjusts to that will be ugly....

I actually think somebody is going to take a poke at grabbing an asteroid and industrializing/colonizing space in the next 20 years providing essentially infinite room for expansion of a new type of nation-state...leaving the current players fighting over the leftover scraps
