I never realized it but the Boxer is getting a bit long in the tooth. Did you know that the Boxer began development in 1993.

National security demands that the US govt be able to spy on its citizens without a warrant

Yeah that's what happens when you open up the southern border and you let known terrorists in. They created a problem so that they could smash our civil liberties and have pussified Americans cheer them on because they're fearful.

China is supposedly testing a new attack helicopter


Everything is lining up so badly for Force Design 2030. Once located and the MLR will be located, then they will be destroyed at distance without being able to fire a single shot in anger. A forward deployed force with only short range anti-air? If rocket artillery doesn't smash them at leisure then the Chinese Air Force will with either attack helicopters, fighters, or even bombers. If they're busy then they can bombard them at distance with a destroyer. HQMC is bragging on the cost benefit analysis. I think they're wrong. One dead MLR will affect the American psyche much more than the loss (questionable considering how light the anti-ship missile carriage of an MLR is) of a Chinese destroyer on their public.

The Republican to replace disgraced Representative Desantos was a REGISTERED DEMOCRAT???


I read the above tweet and hit on the "the republican is a registered democrat".

I lost my shit.

Surely the Republican party ain't that damn stupid.

Quick google search and I find this from Politico.
But public records uncovered by POLITICO show Pilip has enrolled as a Democrat since 2012.

Pilip currently holds office as a Republican and ran on the GOP ticket for the Nassau County legislator in 2021 and 2023.

Both Pilip and Joe Cairo, the county’s GOP chair, did not respond to numerous requests for comment, including through allies. But the Nassau County Board of Elections’ spokesperson called Playbook on Pilip’s behalf and confirmed she is an enrolled Democrat.

Story here

The Republican Party isn't the opposition party.  It's the illusion party to make Americans believe they have a choice.

Your thoughts on the Palestinians?


Disturbing to some, refreshing to me...Our leadership has a messiah complex. They look all over the world and try and solve everyone else's problems and ignore what's right underneath their noses right here in America.

America first a nationalist slogan?

You're outta your fucking mind!

America first is a call to get our priorities straight!

Read the entire Twitter thread...


The year of fear continues.... Now news of a Russian breakthrough related to space....

This shit is so fucking predictable.

An aid package is passed by turncoat Republican Senators, the House Republicans are trying to stand their ground against an onslaught of War Chicken Republicans, Democrats, Europeans and Ukrainian freaks and out of nowhere we get news that the Russians have made some kind of breakthrough that will tilt the balance?

I'm not buying it.

The only way these anti-American fucks have to pass idiotic bills that make no sense is to scare the American people.  Mark my words.  The next thing you will hear is that the aid package to Ukraine is essential to OUR national security because of this new threat.

The most fucked up part is that it'll work on all the pussified Americans that actually believe every piece of psyops the govt throws their way.

Sidenote.  We have the X-37.  Who in their right mind would think that the Russians, Chinese, Germans, French, Turks, and every other advanced nation wouldn't try and match that capability if not surpass it?  Isn't this the "Competition" that the Pentagon has been talking about?

The year of fear continues...

Why does the US Army suck so bad at telling its story?

This battle would be repeated during PT and running the obstacle course in boot camp if it was the Marines. In the Army? Ya got to dig that stuff out for yourself. The US Army has a great story to tell but they suck so bad at doing it. I wonder why?

As Commander Salamander (you really should check out his blog) would say...this is FULL BORE!

For the freaks out there (nazis, kkk'ers..etc..) that will scream oh he posted it because its black history month. Naw. I posted it because I just saw this and since we're in a winter of boring ass military news and LEO news is a bit frustrating I hit this up. Full disclosure. I'm all for banning all "months". Black, Hispanic, LBGT....fuck I'm to the point of just giving us numbered holidays to take all the idiocy out of the thing. Most folks just want the days off anyway.

Damn near brand new and can't fly...


Did the Marine Corps attitude of "we'll fix it once we get it" doom a few different air arms we're allied with?

Drones as snipers?


What is the cost benefit of using drones against individual infantrymen? I can't quite tell. Everyone is talking about drones being the new big bad but at what point does it not make sense in how they're being used. I'm really starting to glob onto the idea that the Ukrainian/Russian conflict is a one off. Maneuver warfare is non-existant. Air power in any credible form is not playing a part. ISR assets are apparently limited. Do you truly believe that a war between the US and China would play out this way? Do you truly believe that if China lost 250K troops it would stop or even begin to limit its offensive activity?

But back on task.

I ask this question.

Which makes more sense.  To utilize drones to take out individual infantrymen on the battlefield or to simply use a sniper platoon and have them properly dispersed to do the same job...while gathering intel on enemy units?

A $2.00 338 Lapua vs a $500 drone.

Even at this level I think a well trained sniper platoon is much more effective in a given sector than a drone operator platoon that is waiting for new munitions/drones after every kill.

Airborne Ops in the Artic...

I wonder what the difference is when doing a jump in the far north is from doing it in the desert or even southern locations. I bet even gym rats are dropping muscle so they're smaller if they're going out the side door way up there.

Something a little different. You can't beat Batman if he has prep time...

Applies to us too. Prep time is key for a specific target but training covers day to day. Just had my defensive tactics refresher and officer survival. I'm sore. Talk to ya'll tomorrow.
