The Best Defense

Great drone video

Just watch this and think of what warfare might look like in 50 years. It appears that we will be fighting "in the cloud" in the clouds.


The Best Defense

News keeps coming!: Iran undermines Turk-Kurd peace pact, ancient Persian chemical warfare, Army col's, Uighurs, etc.


  • To the southeast, fighting in Tarmiyah, a strong candidate for the roughest little town in Iraq, killed some Awakening members.
  • In the world of good Army colonels and not-so-good ones, Col. Everett Spain, currently finishing a Ph.D. at Harvard, was awarded the Soldier's Medal for his actions during the bombing of the Boston Marathon. I also am hearing that an Army colonel is in trouble for pulling his 9mm pistol and threatening a staff officer with it.
  • The Lawfare blog, which is dependable for its facts, for its smart interpretations, and for its slightly right-of-center views, is now carrying advertisements for jockey underwear that costs $24 a pop. Do you think a left-of-center blog would prefer to advertise boxer underwear?
  • Moving right along, there was a shootout on the Vietnamese-Chinese border, apparently involving a group of Uighurs.
  • There apparently is a CIA weapons depot in Boerne, Texas. This confirms everything that New Yorkers have always believed about Texans. And the CIA.
  • Yow. Cinco de and all that.
