Needed a break from everything. Took a few days off. Went “fishing” for a few days. Caught a few…. oh… “fish”.
Anyway, been tracking Syria, the Russians, and the rest of the world political climate on the side, but keeping my comments limited.
Contrary to some of my friends who seem to believe the Russians are the good guys here I have to say they are certainly poking and prodding to awaken a sleeping Eagle. At the same time, Obama is acting like a complete buffoon. Obama IS a Buffoon. He’s an asshat and a clown. Some how he believes he has the right to launch a new war against someone in the Middle East. We’re tired of this shit and he needs to bring home our boys and girls and let them rest.
Facing off with the Russians is about as stupid a thing as he could do.
Invoking the War Powers Act is about as unconstitutional as he could do. He is asking Congress to back him. He hasn’t called Congress home so he is apparently in no hurry to cause a nuclear war.
And, please make no mistake about this, if we launch attacks against Syria, who happens to have Russia as an Ally Russia isn’t going to sit on their asses and do nothing. Now a lot of military personnel, and non-military personnel alike out there will argue the Russians can’t possibly stand up to the United States Military and ordinarily I’d agree. But the truth is the Russians and United States alike still have Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICMBs) armed with from 2-20 megaton warheads. Both countries can drop a warhead with pinpoint accuracy and we all know that.
No, their tanks can’t stand up to ours. Their military, as well trained and large as it is isn’t a match for ours.
But this isn’t completely about the Russians invading American Soil (or us doing the same to them). This is about Obama pressing Putin into a corner on Syria over might-be-chemical-weapons (and I’m not expert, but I’m both aware and cognizant of what Sarin nerve agents, or most nerve agents do to victims, and have seen videos of those who were affected by the chemical attack).
Currently, the Russians have around eighty armed vessels off the coast of Syria, including it appears two destroyers and at least one air craft carrier.
The US has sent a number of ships and the USS Nimitz is moving into place with a full carrier group. I won’t post troop movements here though, ever…. but I’ll point out we’re not on equal terms right now.
What the US and Russia are doing is playing Russian Roulette. One well placed nuke will take out most of the carrier group. One accidental shot across the wrong bow, at the wrong building (containing Russian citizens or troops) and its on like Donkey Kong.
I have “high confidence” we can “take” the Russians. But this, again, isn’t about our military. This is about the innocent people who will be caught up in the ensuing nuclear strife. Do I honestly think they will lob nukes at us? Yes, the Russians are NOT our friends, never have been our friends. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the Russia people. I dislike the Communism they hold so dear, the deaths of millions because of Communism in the 19th and 20th centuries and I hate the fact that Putin is a former KGB bad boy who tries to look like a Russian James Bond on television. He’s certainly more “manly” than Obama though, and I think that is what makes the girls make puddles in their panties. And half the American “metrosexual” males, and maybe a good portion of the US military today.
The truth is, I don’t trust our own government to protect our own people against a nuclear war. In fact, I’m 100% certain the ONLY people protected will be the “Elites” in Congress, the White House and a few special “governors” around the country. I’m 100% certain that people like me, with a home in striking distant of any of several military installations will die in the first salvo rendering me useless to our own American fighting forces (the people of this country). Along with me, thousands or millions would die in my area alone. The whole region would be rendered useless to America, no more farming to the East, no military personnel here, no machines, no assets, no satellite control. Well, you get the bleakness of the picture and I don’t need to beat a dead horse.
Sure, some of you will severely disagree with me, and say how we won’t get into a nuclear weapon throwing contest. But, are you really that sure?
Basically, this is a clarion call to American Patriots around the country. Be ready for the worst. Be prepared. When the shit hits the fan, we’re on our own. There won’t be a government to help anyone, there won’t be a military force in place to protect American Citizens. Martial Law will be declared and you’ll be told to stay home and pretty much die alone.
The time is at hand…. Congress isn’t even in session and we’re going to see something happen, soon. I believe it won’t be what we expect at all.
