Open Comment Post. Jan 30, 2017.

Things on my mind this morning...

1.  Still puzzling together that SEAL Team 6 Raid.  Who that V-22 belongs to will tell a lot.  A reader confirms that that the USS Makin is in the area and 5th MEB is handling all forces in the region (well at least we know the answer to that question...distributed operations and independent ship ops are indeed a thing and they're gonna be moving MEBs forward to provide the extended command and control...suddenly those Colonel billets to command a MEU are gonna be alot less desireable...guess you have to justify enough stars to command an Army sized Marine Corps even though its only 3 active divisions).  SEAL Team 6 being involved makes me think that this was a bigger action than we're thinking.  If those bubbas got hit hard enough to have one killed, three injured and be involved in a two hour firefight then the intel was trash or someone was smelling their manhood and went in much too light.  I'm a dog on a bone with this one.  I need to know more.  I'll never see the after action but I bet it would make some fascinating reading.

2.  A mosque was attacked in Canada.  If it wasn't for the fact that people died in a house of worship it would be filled with irony.  The left fully expected this type of thing in America but for it to happen in progressive Canada is eye opening.  The optics on this thing make it look like immigration supporters are carrying the day.  I'm not so sure.  Take for instance the Starbuck CEO that stated that he's gonna hire 100K refugees.  Do you think that goes over well in the heartland?  I might be wrong but I don't.  There is a bunch of knee jerk reactions to get on this bandwagon but I think people are miss reading this situation.  Time will tell.

3.  I was looking at my favorite firearm porn and one guy had "cash me outside" written on his dust cover.  I was mystified so I looked it up on Google.  You do the same cause this isn't a "high class" blog but I won't dirty it with that idiocy.  Suffice it to say the world is coming to an end, we're all gonna die, and we have some truly troubled kids out there.

4.  The craziness about Trump is beyond crazy.  The guy has been in office one week and people are talking about how he's trampled their rights, turned back the clock on women's reproduction and totally destroyed the Obama legacy.  It's been one week!  The fear and loathing has gone from funny to boring. This almost seems like the last gasp of the hippie generation along with their spoiled grandkids.  The one thing that I've noticed that has shocked me is how unified the world is when it comes to a weakened US.  The outrage by certain countries is telling.  Russia hasn't said a thing.  Neither has China.  Japan, Singapore, Australia, Philippines, S. Korea and Israel have been quiet.  Poland, the Netherlands, Sweden have also said nothing (at least officially from what I recall).  Canada, Germany, France, the UK...they've been at the forefront for public ridicule of Trump.  That means something but I don't know what.

Anyway that's on my mind.  What's on yours.
