  1. Ah, a good cursing out from Rocky. Now I feel warm and toasty. You are the air beneath my wings buddy.

  2. There was no serious military failure in those wars. Only political. Our politicians assume that the cutures in Asia just wanna be like us. "Geez, look at Japan." Well convemiently forgotten is that we had to nuke them. We weren't willing to do things like that in Korea and Vietnam. Overlooked by Friedman is the fact that none of our adversaries could militarily defeat our land forces. The Chinese tried to push us out of Korea and failed to do so. Vietnam was certainly no military defeat either. Oh they kicked our political asses but that was because our politicians had no good reason to convince our country why we should draft our sons to go over there. Thus the chicken hawks were created who never served but became ardent supporters for US military intervention in the middle east, Iraq, Iran, etc. My dictum is (pun intended) is never get involved in a land war in Asia unless it is so important that if the enemy doesn't relent we will use every means at our disposal if necessary. Put the Big Green Machine on automatic and let the meat grind.

    An Atlas 5 does its job and delivers a X-37b in orbit. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41909331/ns/technology_and_science-space/ Experts agree: the orbiter is testing gear for the National Reconn Office.

    Another X-37B is being prepped for launch on March 4. http://spaceflightnow.com/atlas/av026/status.html Mums the word about the mission.
  6. A Sons of Nippon website featuring Anglo American writers: http://the-diplomat.com/2011/02/07/us-drones-trump-china-theatrics/ A bit optimistic I would think,
  7. Other than diplo=niceities, I don't see the US involved in any way, shape, form or matter. Well if Hosni wants to come and live on a golf course mansion in Las Vegas....maybe. But it would take a nuke going off in the Suez Canal befroe the US would do anything. Anything less and we'll send flowers. I'll grieve for the antiquities. Israel can protect itself. It has before and it can do so again.

    An experiment with no benefit to a real Mars expedition. It has to be quicker than 520 days and it has to deal with solar storms, etc. Not to mention that they will be in a weakened state after 520 days if and when they land on Mars.

    New movie coming out about the ISS: http://www.onorbit.com/node/2844 Synopsis: "After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut Lee Miller becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity - and simply stay alive. His world is a claustrophobic and lonely existence, until he makes a strange discovery aboard the ship. Driven by the powerful music of Angels & AIrwaves, LOVE explores the fundamental human need for connection and the limitless power of hope A high-impact visual adventure, that resonates a common truth, that everyone has a story to tell and something even greater to leave behind
  12. "Air Superiority by Harbor Freight" I too am a Harbor Freight target. When I get the catalogs I go into a comatose state overwhelmed at the thought of getting color coded screwdrivers at a dozen for 1.99. The mind whirls at the possibilities. They sure look purty too. The Sons of Chunking know their customers that's for sure.
