You’d think, but you’d have to be serious about really working the energy issue. It’s more about posturing, you know.

    Six Theories on the Loss of the Titanic
    It was already figured out years ago. The Titanic sank because the rivets holding together it’s hull were all made of sub-standard material, and they snapped like toothpicks under the force of the collision.

    Those Vulcans would have had their asses handed to them; they would have had no escort, and no ability to use the Shrike or Sidewinder, contrary to the RAF’s claims. They would have been up to their necks in Skyhawks, Daggers, Mirage IIIs, Mirage Vs, 40mm Bofors, 35mm Oerlikon GDIs, and Blowpipe missiles.
    The Tornados wouldn’t have done much better, as indicated by the atypically-heavy losses of 6 Tornadoes to the Iraqi Army (which was more of a Potemkin Village than anything else) in the Gulf War

    They just sank it. I watched footage of a Coast Guard Cutter scuttling it with gunfire on the news.

    Watch as the Fighter Mafia uses every dirty trick in the book to stall this effort out of existence — delay is the surest form of denial.

    We already get most of our imported oil from Canada and Mexico;

    Fleet of Stryker vehicles marks new chapter at Fort Hood
    Now they’re just another Motorized Infantry Regiment (not a Brigade, which would have at least 5000 personnel, not 3000) — not a Cavalry unit anymore.
    Or more precisely, they’re a re-enactment of Groupement Mobile 100, as made obvious by this; http://ciar.org/ttk/mbt/armor/armor-magazine/armor-mag.2001.jf/1french01.pdf

    The Air Force’s newest B-52 turns 50
    It’s the simplicity of the B-52 (relative to current US warplanes) that has made it so capable and long-lived. By contrast, 1/3 of the ultra-complex B-1B Lancer fleet has gone to the boneyards, another 1/3 are inactive, and now the USAF is trying to get rid of the whole thing once and for all; http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,2000020,00.html
    They won’t try replace the B-52, because an effective (i.e., cheap, reliable, and efficient) bomber means a smaller cash-flow. Rather, they’ll pull every stop to PREVENT such a measure.

    GAO calls tanker testing pace too aggressive
    A rushed testing schedule is a dead giveaway of misconduct — and so is the lack of consideration for the use of an interim AAR Tanker, in this instance.

    The next step is deciding who is allowed to eat anything at all — and enforcing it with a vengeance.

    FAA Reconsiders Ban on Gadgets During Takeoff, Landing
    The only electronics that can interfere with the communications and sensors of a commercial airliners are those that transmit on the specific radio frequencies that said aircraft electronics use. Cell phones, walkie-talkies, and so on don’t do this. This is because of the simple fact that the transmissions of said aircraft electronics in all the airplanes criss-crossing the sky at every given moment would jam all of these personal devices.
    Moreover, devices that aren’t built to transmit radio waves anything at all have no effect on radio communications or radar.
    It’s as simple as that.

    I can’t say that makes me feel good. It seems the need for these things is passing. Iraq is done and Afghanistan will be ending sooner rather than later. Hopefully we are done with these BS nation building excursions.

    I just hope they preserve the heavy armor they are trading in so that it may be recalled in a real emergency.
