UPDATE: You Know It’s True…

Last night I linked to some fake headlines at OpFor in post called If World War II Were Fought Today…

Today I remembered the huge headline in the Colorado Springs Gazette-Telegraph on either day three or day four (I think) of the air campaign in 1991:


I’m not making this up. I wish I would have saved it. (I’ve tried to search for a link or others that remember, but no luck.)

A guy I worked with on the Air Force Academy had been ground crew for F-105s in Vietnam. He laughed all day long over that one.


  1. I have lost all hope for the United States of America. Can we just nuke ourselves and the whole world and be done with it? Maybe someone else can do it better… =(

  2. No one has the balls to do that, Skrip, if they did, we wouldn’t need it. As it is we will be put out of our misery soon enough.

  3. Don’t give up Skrip. Even if we only hold things back another 50 or 100 years, there are millions who will benefit. And those who can truly reverse things may very well show up on the scene. We ARE the last and best hope for the freedom of 100s of millions. Remember, if America falls, a curtain of darkness may very well cover the face of the earth for a thousand years.

  4. But whats the point? Our greatest enemy is ourselves. Al Qaeda, Iran, North Korea are nothing compared to how our own citizenry, politicians, and media organizations run things. It’s seems like we’re entering a downward spiral. Slowly crashing. slowly burning. Sure, our military is strong, our economy is solid. But all this can be undone within a decade. It’s hopeless. We cant fight ourselves. We cant win. The enemy lies within.

  5. Hopeless? No, it’s not hopeless. There are too many good people in this country for it to be hopeless. It’s just a matter of how bad things are going to have to get before they get better. Hopefully, it won’t be too much worse.
