Damn - that thing is a monster. another 1.8 mm in Caliber...looks like another few calibers in barrel (the old Dr. Bull fix).

I know Denel/Somchem makes dang good propellant...i wonder about the chamber size, grains, formulations...hmmmm

Another thing of interest to go in my hopper. Thanks for the awesome comparison shot.

Thanks Loren - my entire thought process is rather huge - I believe the awesome comments herein are a great step one:

I am thinking federal level unfortunately:

Step 3a - 10% max tax rate for everyone, TX can refund the fed tax...corporate tax (for 100% US made goods, from energy to corporate headquarters), again TX refunds all the federal above this level...they won't have anyplace to put the industry...

Just going way outta the box

Comments coming Loren...

Step 1 - close the borders, I believe the 4th ID is inTexas, send em all to the Texas/NM border. Cover it all, anybody coming across is a hostile invader, deadly force authorized to stop them...after 1-2 days it will stop.

Step 2 - as you said..operators south into Mexico to eliminate the Cartels...anybody read Killing Pablo? There is precedent

Step 3 - All companies can only employ US citizens or legal workers, the penalty to owner, BOD, CEO, COO, CFO is 2 yrs per illegal minimum, not concurrently served and $50k per day per illegal fine like ITAR....

More to come

Only been through jury selection twice - was part of the backup jurors for the case here where an estranged husband and wife shot it out in the courtroom - she died, he got off as crime of passion (her lawyer got winged BTW)....could not reconcile truth with the process of main jury selection...sickened me... They definitely do not want somebody who can run a cause and effect failure analysis in a jury....

Afternoon all - interesting comment on MH17 via Keith Nell, author of Viscount Down....worth heeding...

COMMENTS - FLIGHT MH17 – THE MALAYSIAN AIR DISASTER

The downing of Malaysia Airways FLIGHT MH17 and the tragic loss of 298 lives, revives our vivid memories of Air Rhodesia’s Viscount Disasters that shocked the Nation and became the turning point of the Rhodesian bush war.

Indeed, the Russian strategy behind Joshua Nkomo’s missile campaign in Rhodesia to destroy passenger carrying aircraft in flight for political and military gain, changed the course of history in southern Africa and in other countries well beyond. (Predictably it will do the same in the Ukraine soon). In fact, the Russian devised missile campaign was seen to be so successful in Rhodesia that the strategy behind it was noticed by governments and terrorist organizations in foreign countries and became the blueprint for similar attacks ever since.

The downing of Flight MH17 has launched a revival of the Cold War. Call it COLD WAR 2 if you like and you won’t be wrong. Just as the Cuban missile threat of the 60’s became a threat to world peace and very nearly ended in a nuclear war, so too will the downing of MH17 be viewed as being the next-of-kin to the Cuban crisis and is bound to carry very serious consequences. The upside though, is bound to bring about intensification of new counter measures on the ground and in the air that simply cannot wait.

The dictum, which is scarcely an under-statement, is that whoever controls the skies by whatever means, also controls the region and can dictate the movements of all air traffic therein, even if only temporarily so. Missiles are a very powerful and disruptive tool to be available in the wrong hands, and right now, there doesnt seem to be an effective way of stopping the hands on triggers that bring down civilian aircraft.

There are systems available that reduce missile susceptibility in passenger aircraft by deflecting missiles but are very costly and therefore, are not installed in most commercial aircraft today, but even so, there is no guarantee of safety in the sky. Consider the Russian BUK missile system that is easily upgraded to launch the latest 9m317 missile with much improved jamming immunity and and advanced performance capabilities. It is claimed to be absolutely unrivaled in the world that won’t be outperformed by competitor models until the end of the first decade of the next century!

Turning back to Flight MH17, who is to be blamed and what was the purpose of downing it? Already allegations, denials, claims and counter-claims fly across from East to West on a daily basis, so what are we in dark Africa are to think? Is the underlying strategy a continuation of the blueprint mentioned above? Will the truth be dismissed in the clouds of confusion between disbelief, theories and facts? Are Putin’s demonstrations of sadness and sorrow genuine or Hollywood enactments? Does he even need them?

There is so much speculation going on of who did what, where and why - but all feasible indications bear strong similarities with the missile attacks that brought down our Rhodesian Viscounts. Look at the history of Russia’s Marxist Leninist strategies that were firmly entranced in revolutions they stirred up in many other countries offering mineral and strategic wealth. As Khrushchev reminded the world, their principle was to not to export revolution on bayonets to other countries. It has to be the work of the working class in each separate country and spoke loudly about being proud of supporting rebel groups with training and military hardware.

Think about it, taking one issue at a time. Were Russian BUK missile systems provided to rebel forces in the Ukraine by Russia or not? Was the BUK system capable of identifying the Malaysian aircraft or not? Google it and see. Was the missile fired by a Ukrainian rebel in error or not – when every civilian airliner has a transponder that constantly transmits identification signals to the outside world. Aircraft identification is a simple process nowadays. The flight details of any and every aircraft in flight across the world can be established in seconds, even from a cell-phone at any place and at all times of the day or night. The airplane’s registration number, Country of Origin, flight speed, altitude, direction and exact coordinates are all available, not just to us but also to everyone else.

These and more issues will be addressed In my next newsletter when more factual references emerge pointing to the truth.

All good wishes to you!

Keith Nell

Very good reminder Chief - though I highly doubt the major European powers will do more than wring their hands....they are more concerned with protesting Isreali actions in Gaza (fully justified actions in my mind BTW) than ruining their natural gas supply for the coming winter.

This shoot down happened near the end of the Tanker War as well so that was a pretty hot time in the gulf as well - very ugly (but very lucrative pay according to my first collegiate rugby coach who did those runs in the offseasons) especially since a supertanker bridge stood out like a beacon to targeting radars....as to those Exocet missiles..how bout them French, selling to both sides..just like The Falklands....

Keep an eye on Poland...they seem to be the key in my mind as having the rigid spine in Europe

Excellent roll-up.

I imagine the operators of the system in this case did not know the Malaysian flights transponder was sqwaking passenger aircraft, or knew it and ignored it (which takes this to a whole other level)?

Or did MH17 not have the proper ID calling out to the world?

Just ugly all around.
