5 june 2016. On Guard For Peace… Do The Anglo Brats REALLY Want Round Two?

00 russian bear 050616


The last time that the Russians and Chinese faced off against the windy and hubristical Anglos, they won. Yes, kids, they did… in Korea, the Sov and Chinese war aim was to restore the status quo ante. In large measure, they did so. The VVS won air superiority over the skies of the DPRK and the Chinese infantryman proved himself superior to his American opponents (and certainly far better than the Yanks’ ROK collaborators). The MiGs couldn’t approach closer than 50 kilometres of the edge of the contact zone, which was behind the FEBA (Forward Edge of the Battle Area) and MLR (Main Line of Resistance)… that meant that the USAF had free rein in the combat zone, which was the only reason that the Yanks held back the Chinese infantry.

On the other hand, the Yanks failed in their war aim… to conquer the Korean peninsula and threaten the PRC. That failed miserably. The Yanks didn’t know what hit them when the Chinese infantry smashed their advance at the Chosin Reservoir. The Chinese proved themselves masters of infiltration and general infantry tactics, besides which, they were skilled night fighters, even though they had limited technical communications means. The Sov MiGs could open fire on USAF fighters before the Yanks could return fire as the MiGs had autocannon and the F-86s only had machine guns. By the way, after the war, the USAF abandoned machine guns, as the war had proven them worthless, if not dangerous to their pilots (by allowing the enemy “free space” to fire at them). That proves that the Mighty Yanks had learnt a lesson (at the price of blood shed… but that’s never fazed the Anglos, has it?).

In short, the USA doesn’t do well against peers… for that matter, it hasn’t done well against middle powers supported by major powers (as shown in Vietnam). It also hasn’t done well in insurgencies (Chinese Civil War, French Wars in Indochina and Algeria, Portuguese Colonial War in Africa, Afghanistan, Iraq), whether directly involved or as the major power backer of a proxy. That is, the USA is NOT a “hyperpower”… it is the dominant power in the Americas, to be sure, and its homeland is immune from invasion so long as the USN controls the sealanes. However, it isn’t the monopower that crackbrains like Wolfowitz maintain. Sadly, neoliberals (both “conservatives” and “liberals”) feed young American officers the pabulum that the USA can overwhelm any adversary… it’ll take much blood spilt to unlearn that “lesson”… actually, God willing, Russia and China will deter the American brats… such is my desire, any road…

65 Years Ago Today… Soviet Fighters Started Operations Over Korea… Ending America’s Air Supremacy



Today in military history… on 1 November 1950, Soviet fighter aircraft began operations against American forces in the skies over Korea. On that day, Senior Lieutenant Khominich of the 64 Fighter Air Corps (64 IAK) shot down an American fighter. The Korean War was the last time that the USA faced peer forces (the Soviet VVS and the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army). Ever since then, America has never fought an equal… perhaps, that’s the reason for their grandiosity and arrogance? It’s a possibility…

16 December 2011. Political Correctness Has Run Amuck Since the ’80s… Under BOTH Republicans and Democrats… It’s Time to STOP IT NOW!

This controversial photo has launched an Air Force investigation (original caption).


The above image is the subject of a witch hunt by politically-correct elements in the US Air Force. Read this:

The Air Force launched an investigation into a controversial photo that shows several non-commissioned officers posing with an open casket, in which a fellow airman poses with a noose around his neck and chains over his body. The Air Force Times received a copy of the photo over email, which includes the caption, “Da Dumpt, Da Dumpt… Sucks 2 Be U”. The casket is similar to those used to transport deceased US soldiers home from the battlefield. Air Force Secretary Michael Donley told the paper that investigators were mounting an inquiry of the grief the image might cause for families of fallen service members. “We take this matter seriously. [Air Education and Training Command] has initiated a commander directed investigation”, Donley said in a statement. “Such behaviour isn’t consistent with our core values, and it isn’t representative of the Airmen I know. It saddens me that this may cause additional grief to the families of our fallen warriors”. The photo, dated 23 August 2011, was reportedly taken by airmen with the 345th Training Squadron at Fort Lee, Virginia, according to Gerry Proctor, spokesman for the 37th Training Group at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, which includes the 345th Training Squadron. First appearing on Facebook in early October, the image has since been forwarded by several individuals, including a former soldier and Army spouse. The investigation by the commander of the 37th Training Group is expected to take about two weeks, according to David Smith, a spokesman for AETC at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas.

I decided to check up on this Michael Donley. Well… he was in the US Army for three years (1972-75), and he’s a former Special Ops bubba, so he should know that this kind of goofy photo is STANDARD in the forces, and that you can find goofball photos like this  behind the bar of every Legion hall and VFW post in the nation (hell, I was in the forces… I know… I was part of a photo like this… everybody is). This is typical, standard, and widespread behaviour. It’s healthy, it builds unit cohesion and motivation… it’s a GOOD thing all the way ’round. Here’s the real kicker, though, kids… Donley’s a “conservative” Republican. Yep… he was a DoD staffer under Slobberin’ Ronnie. He worked for the Far Right Heritage Foundation, and everyone’s fave Nazi, Don Rumsfeld, brought this turkey back to the Pentagon in ’05. That is, he’s a Bushie holdover… a Gates cronie. Barack Obama CAN’T be blamed for this POS. NO WAY! Oh, could you imagine how the late great Mike Royko would’ve hauled Donley over the coals for such fatuous nonsense? He’d channel the spirit of Sam Sianis and sic the curse of the Billy Goat on Donley and all his crank rightwing pals in the District.

Let this be a lesson to you. Political Correctness has more often than not been pushed by authoritarian and totalitarian rightwingers than it has by the Left. The rightwing creams its jeans over shit like this because it allows them to brutalise people for harmless fun and push them around. After all, the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA were creations of the Republican Party, NOT the Left. Most Political Correctness is found in the upper reaches of Corporate America (and you won’t be promoted into management unless you echo its every precept)… not in the union hall or the pool hall or the lecture hall. If you look at the omnipresent speech codes and restrictions of free expression in America, they’re mainly the products of the Right, not the Left. Donley may have done this deiberately in order to discredit Barack Obama (it’s worked in some quarters… most of the rightwing blogosphere is blaming Obama, when a Republican apparatchik’s to blame for this mess).

I’ll tell you what I’d do for these guys in the photo… I’d buy ’em all a cold brewskie and say, “Good on you!” Michael Donley… you’re a soulless POS poseur… you’re not fit to be in charge of a busted down ol’ Piper Cub, let alone the entire US Air Force. Note well that this braying and preening jabronie is a “conservative” Republican. That should tell you what to do next November… if you want more of such platitudinous shit, and in more places, vote for the Republican Party. ‘Nuff said!

19 August 2011. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words… The REAL DEAL on Rick Perry

Rick Perry failed to make the cut as a combat pilot (he only flew C130s in the USAF; he was an aerial truck driver), he had shitty grades at Texas A&M (he barely graudated), and he spends over 300 Gs a year in renting out ritzy digs as Texas Governor (where are those “patriotic” Five Percenters when you need them?). Any questions?
