    Voila (Dohhh)

    It used to be that almost all of these people used to get sorted out in basic training. There was a reason why a Drill Instructor was rude, crude and struck fear into recruits. This soldier was psychologically unfit from the get go and slipped through the program thanks to the new PC Military.

    This soldier was in a noncombat (Transportation) unit and only served 4 months in Iraq in 2011, a period of relative calm in Iraq.

    Take a Shaky Jake, introduce psychoactive drugs and viola, you’ve created a monster.

    Easing up behind a police line with a cup of something? Maybe a cup of coffee? Maybe a cup of urine? Maybe a cup of battery acid? When you’re in Charlie Country, everyone without a uniform is Charlie.

    By the way, that was a nice head butt the cop put on the Hank Williams Jr. look alike in the first video loop.

    I live in Tucson, this is nothing new. This happens whether the basketball team wins or loses in the NCAA playoffs. I’d venture to say that half of the participants in the 4th Avenue mayhem aren’t even U of A students, they’re malcontents from all over the city that gravitate to that part of town to get jacked up on booze and drugs and cause problems. At least it wasn’t as bad as in 1997.

    The DC-2, 3 & C-47 design was so robust and efficient that some were being evaluated as assault gliders at the end of WW II. I won’t fly anywhere any more since the mid 70’s but if I really had to I’d check to see if a DC-3 was going my way

    Is it just me or does a Boeing 737 eerily resemble a DC-3 / C-47 with turbofans.

    Barnacle Bill diddled some landlubbers hag.

    You’re absolutely correct. You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve now been cured of naivety, Gonzo.

    Watch for a Russian troop build up near the Belarus border. The quickest way to take Kiev would be a blitzkrieg through Belarus with a conventional movement through eastern Ukraine.

    I may have been naive in thinking the Russkies would settle for the Crimean Peninsula as it now appears there’s a possibility they have designs on the entire Ukraine.

    The only thing left to do now is immediately pull all of our people and hardware out of Afghanistan and North Africa, bring all of our people home, and ship the high hour Abrams, Bradley’s and A-10s to Romania or Poland where the Ukies can be trained and take them home under a lend / lease type agreement, without one American boot having to set foot in Ukraine. All of our low hour stuff would be sent to our units in Germany where they could be held in reserve. (The 1994 Budapest Memorandum will thusly be fulfilled.)

    Is anything wrong with this strategy?

    Barber, you’ve prompted be to look into the 1994 Budapest Memorandum and it appears there is no provision in the document that calls for “military intervention”, It simply promises to recognize Ukraine’s borders in exchange for Ukraine giving up its nuclear weapons at the time.

  • March 9, 2014 at 10:05pm

    Barber, you’re right in that the signed agreement is indeed a sticky wicket.

    On the matter of historic allies, Ukraine as an independent nation hasn’t been around all that long. If I’m not mistaken the only one in that region would be Poland but they’ve been stiffed severely by the West in the past. The recent cancellation of the Missile Defense System that was promised is sure to give them second thoughts of who their friends are.

    Barber, it’s going to take a full scale military action to evict the Muscovy Rus’ from Crimea. Thanks to the current administration, we’re not only monetarily broke but morally and influentially as well. Britain has already backed down from the 1994 agreement you’ve mentioned.

    The last thing I would ever want to see is more of our finest young people’s lives being wasted in another adventure not in direct defense of the U. S. or our historic allies.

    We need to stay out of this family fight among the Rus’. Let the European Union sort it out as it’s their gas that may get shut off.

    If you are right and Russia doesn’t just settle for military access to Crimea, its going to get real ugly real fast as it will most likely draw Poland and possibly Germany to the defense of Ukraine.

    There’s a lot of history in this region of the world that makes this move by the Russians not unexpected. Just about all of the invading forces with their sights on Russia as the prize have passed through Ukraine with Genghis Kahn, the Turks and the Germans to name a few. After the Russo-Turkish wars Catherine the Great claimed the Crimea as spoils of war and retained it as a military bastion for the defense of Mother Russia from forces from the south. For some unclear reason Nikita Khrushchev ceded The Crimean Peninsula to Ukraine in 1954.

    The people in Western Ukraine along with the other Slavic nations have always tended to distrust the Russians for many reasons, including what happened to the Ukrainian Kulaks at the hand of Stalin.

    The bottom line is that Russia needs the entire Crimean Peninsula for it southern national defense and will not take any threat to its free and uninterrupted access lightly. Heck, even Sarah Palin predicted this Russian move on Ukraine back in 2008.

    You have to realize that there’s a segment of society that will denigrate any part of the American Culture that does not promote music that doesn’t reference drug use, mayhem, and anarchy. Their music also has to be accompanied by unintelligible screaming, moaning, and a battery of out of control chain saws that pass as guitar masterpieces.

    Metabolic overload? Interesting, but wouldn’t an enlarged liver, spleen, or pancreatitis be apparent to the coroner?

    It sounds like you’ve already have had enough for tonight, sonny boy. Goodnight and please…stay off the road.
