I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on how the Russia/Syria alliance impacts the #1 option....given that Russia has essentially backed Assad?? My concern is that unlike Iraq/A-stan, that if we were to intervene, in any manner, that it might escalate other countries involvement...i.e. a Duke Ferdinand moment??? Thoughts?? .http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323398204578487333332405720.html

@Tango9 @momengineer FWIW, I didn't do that till I started reading SOFREP (looking for exits, etc).Although I have always made it a hobby to try to memorize license plates, etc. Read it in a Nancy Drew (or was it Trixie Belden novel) when I was a kid...
1 week, 5 days ago on Don’t be a Soft Target
@Tango9 umm.. Tango, I am not military and not male. But I do that. Especially when I have my kids with me.
not going to discuss the naked part ;)
@StormR if you are being overly cynical...its catching. I admit to being less optimistic than I have ever been....
2 weeks ago on U.S. Foreign Policy Lost…and Found
Before this devolves into a "my religion is better than your religion", I would just like to point out that religion is just one avenue that extremists use. Someone prone to extremism will latch onto any "religion" whether that is Islam (jihadist), Christianity (WBC), environmental (eco-terrorists) or race (aryan brotherhood, black panthers, etc). The beliefs are just conduits for the actions and underlying desires....there is and has always been evil, and it takes on many disguises

@Old PH2 @jeffreycarr I can't add much to this discussion, but I will offer this: Most Americans have short term view/lens in which they view things. So, to us, the fact that they (the suspects) were raised here should negate all previous cultural influences. It doesn't. Many cultures have much longer "memories" for lack of a better term.
(Heck- I live in the Deep South, and look at how many generations here were still hacked off about the Civil War...multiple generations later..its almost 150 years for it to go from pure hatred to just intense dislike. Now, translate that to a foreign culture and add the religious aspect?
3 weeks, 6 days ago on The Brothers Kavkaz: Analyzing the Chechen Connection to the Boston Marathon
@dickftr @LauraWalkerKC @jeffreycarr The older ones wife worked. According to one news report "70 hours" or so a week, while he was watching the baby. ???
@AUNITEDPEOPLE @majrod Apparently they are legal in Boston. 'Cause we all know that the two brothers wouldn't have them if it were illegal, right?!
1 month ago on Our Homeland Attacked For The First Time Since 9/11
@JHR hey, JHR...can you recommend any articles/books on the subject (um..more importantly- what I can do to protect my family) of asymmetrical warfare? I am going to get the "dirty wars" book when its released...any others?? TIA!
@DoubleB1521 @momengineer @ratt1niner I was actually theorizing if it were more than one city- hit major metro areas at once (say NY, Boston, DC, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, LA)...even those in small towns would be freaked out and it would be like the days post 9-11. I'm sure someone smarter than me has game-planned a scenario/response though...just "thinking" out loud
@Virginstateofmind Look down below at JHR's post...refers to the "latest" version of global jihad
@DoubleB1521 @ratt1niner If I were a bad guy, I would be looking at how paralyzing this situation is (and the Dorner one from a bit back)...and be thinking...hmmmm....multiple cities, nationwide...economic impact alone would be huge!
@Tango9@DieHardDeucehttp://dfw.cbslocal.com/2013/04/18/fertilizer-plant-cited-for-06-permit-violation/ While timing is suspect, it could just be incompetence (after all, you can find an anniversary if you really, really look for one)....industrial accidents do happen, even with safety procedures in place. I've had to take an ambulance ride once myself...
@Allwet @Ishaan supposedly the ricin was mailed April 8th, before attacks. Dude was an elvis impersonator....
@DieHardDeuce Stating that its just a fire, hmm...There are coincidences, and then there are coincidences....I feel "on alert" now...but a couple more "coincidences" and I am going to be really wigged out.
@shagstar You know, I am not a big fan of Obama. But the fact that "uncle joe" is next in command??? Now THAT's scary!!
@Treadstone71 @Coppahoss Treadstone...I believe what Coppahoss was refering to, is that the marshlands surrounding NOLA act as a natural buffer- absorbing the impacts of hurricanes (they can adsorb the massive rains, and the trees help to mitigate the wind shears). Over the last century or so, the marshlands have been disappearing. Some, yes, is oil exploration. Some is the ever expanding building boom of suburbia, some is related to water flows on the Mississippi (even those decreased flows of the Missouri, and upper Midwest etc that feed into the Mississippi). Its not just one factor, imho
1 month ago on The Long Shadow Of Katrina
interesting timing...stumbled across this today http://publicintelligence.net/dod-support-civilian-law-enforcement/I also predict a very busy day for the mods...articles like this bring out 1) the black helicopter crowd and 2) those who never have looked at sofrep before, coming in and "bombing" the author/site credibility. Yall have a food day, mkay??
