The dystopian social engineers are desperately trying to make the characteristics of success; education, diligence, perseverance, hard work, integrity ... into disreputable "whitey" characteristics. They are desperately trying to widen the divides between the racial and ethnic groups to B...

FWIW, I like math, always have. Why? 1. Because of my excellent foundation, and genetics (My dad solved math problems in his head most people today could not handle with a calculator) I've always been very good at it. 2. It's pure, at least until you get to your second semester of Calculus :lol: :l...

Craig and other friends of Flashman might find this of interest. It's from an OB of George MacDonald Fraser, Flashman's "father". :) How did this rotter win our hearts? Might help if you have a fairly Black heart to begin with eh Craig? First , he tells a rattling good yarn, whether of gr...

I can only advise you to apply Flashman’s teachings to the modern era. They seem singularly applicable to the existing crop of politicians ;) Why am I not surprised that you, "Craiglxviii" old man, would be a Flashman Fan? Did you ever read "Flashman and the Redskins? IMO, Fraser kne...

I just came across some lectures by a very amusing Brit called Lindy Beige. He'a a fan of Harry Flashman, one of my favorite comic history fictional characters so he can't be all bad. ;) He has a lot of vids lectures on The Roman Legions/Army. Although "Imperial Governor" is one of my fav...

This explains a lot of why The Post publicity campaign is so effective. I know The Post is about the Pentagon Papers and the title of this article includes WATERGATE.

I wonder if the Light Tank is even a viable concept these days. Has the IFV tracked like the Bradley and wheeled like the Striker taken over that mission? How about UGCVs ("Unmanned ground combat vehicles)? I guess I spoke to soon about "Light tanks". ;) I found this article while lo...

They claim an “attack range” of 7-8km. For a main gun? The Main gun can fire anti-tank missiles. I expect that is where the long range shots come from. I seem to remember the US Army tried this back in the late '60s with the Sheridan Tank. I remember hearing about the Sheridans with the 82nd during...

It seems the two biggest advantages the T-14 may have over current Western tanks is the unmanned turret and active defence system. I'm not sold on the unmanned turret. Having a crew commander with eyes open still provides unparalleled situational awareness. Active defences can be installed on Abram...

The fact that George Washington didn't die in battle proves that he couldn't die in battle, because he really really should have died in battle. IMO it is a case of Divine Intervention. I offer the following evidence. Recapping my first pots, in 1755, George Washington served as an aide-de-camp und...
