The Pentagon needs to inform the public about peer vs peer "games"...what happened with the UAV was nothing compared to what has come before or what we'll soon see



Peer vs Peer "games" have been going on a long time and while the public appears to be alarmed (surprisingly quite a few congress critters too), whats happened in the past makes the recent incident look like kiddie play.

That's what we can see from the past too.

Talk to the old sub guys and you would hear about some pretty crazy stuff they were involved in (supposedly even recently they've been in some crazy stuff but that's just rumor).

My point is that if you're talking super power games, and we are, then the public better wrap its brain around the concept that things will get hairy.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.

All it takes is one Regiment/Brigade Commander on either side of a line on a map to dig his claws in and react/over react to a situation and suddenly you have both sides rushing forces to an area.

Same applies in the air and sea.

Fighters patrolling and suddenly it turns into an air battle because intentions are misunderstood.

You have bumper cars at sea and that monster Chinese Coast Guard Cutter bumps one of our ships and accidently sinks it and you have the potential for weapons free in the Pacific before leadership can lower the volume (wouldn't that be a kick in the pants to see that ship bump a Landing Ship Medium).

My point.

The UAV incident wasn't shit.
