re: Breaking: N.K. military considers striking around Guam with 4 Hwasong-12 missiles - klrstix
[quote] Or they could be pulling a cold war tactic and want to bleed us dry via an engagement with NK that China would have legitimate rights to set some sort of ground rules for. [/quote] It could be something as pedestrian as gaining insight into the current administration... Anyway, any o...

re: Breaking: N.K. military considers striking around Guam with 4 Hwasong-12 missiles - klrstix
[quote]I'm starting to suspect China is behind this.[/quote] I have entertained this idea... not sure what the purpose would be and how it might fit into their longterm strategic goals. Is it possible they are simply using NK to somehow set themselves up as power brokers in this region. ...

re: Calexit - Dreams can come true - klrstix
[quote] This affects LONG TERM economic policy as well as social and cultural direction. The significance of this is self evident. [/quote] Not sure it is as self evident as you might think. I think the negative economic impact for the USA would be short term ( 5 to 7 years...) There is a ...

[quote] that's b/c there is a mythology that SS/Medicare aren't welfare programs and they rely on the discretionary charts [/quote] I would argue that given that fact that specific taxes are levied on myself and my business to go towards these two specific programs, it isn't a welfare program. ...

re: I'm usually excited to see how our offense does, but.. - klrstix
As many of the responses have already indicated, there are several levels to this years defense... 1) Lost a good deal of veteran talent. Not so easy to replace. 2) We have young talent but untested as heavy lifters in an SEC schedule. 3) Aranda's 2nd year as DC. Better overall understand...

re: How “Confident” are Intelligence Agencies that Russia Interfered with the Election? - klrstix
I haven't researched this thoroughly but I believe the term "Interfered" is misleading... Technically the more accurate term is either "Attempted to interfere" or may simply "clandestinely monitored" election results. The point is there has been no proof that any election results were tampered...

re: When did the fanbase decide they wanted Coach O? - klrstix
[quote] I love Coach O and I am not a fan of Alleva, but our fan base once again handcuffed him. He was almost forced to hire coach O because our fans pretty openly campaigned to have him hired permanently. Just like they did after the A&M game two years ago that handcuffed him to keeping Les aroun...

[quote]the destruction of 2 cities with nukes was really not that big of a deal [/quote] This is the part I disagree with... I think the psychological effect of a single bomb doing that much destruction is mostly what brought them to the table. However, I do agree with you Russia entering i...

[quote]Think of it this way...[/quote] Very plausible... However, to me its not about how much resources they throw at Russia. As I recall they already had 80% of their War resources invested in Russia. The three things I think that make the difference is this... Rommel... What differenc...

[quote] I think one of the biggest myths is that nukes somehow won world war 2 [/quote] I do agree with you to a degree however I do not think you can argue the the nukes we used brought the pacific campaign to a close sooner, with less loss of life (as opposed to a convention invasion of Japan)...
