Hunting Season?




This is the sentiment permeating through the web via Google Plus, and upset Soldiers using salty language. Hehe

I don’t want to make light of the current situation, it’s far from light, (I’m now hearing rumors that the beheadings (3) are the result of a false flag). (What? Links below) I’m not sure about everyone else but this is all a bit overwhelming for me; I found a little humor in this image, despite how distasteful it may be to some. As for me,  I wouldn’t mind seeing the arid deserts of Iraq and Syria gettin’ a little rain. Compliments of the US Military. On the other hand, I’m not sure I trust anything I’ve been hearing and reading. Everything seems to have snowballed into a Jupiter size sphere and it’s heading right for us.

I found this to be an eye opener. The fact that it was written by a retired Marine with multiple combat deployments under his belt solidifies the truth behind his words. Pass this one along, I think America needs to read this. Thank you.

This came to me via Got Your 6’s newsletter. It linked me to the website Task & Purpose to read this article. Enjoy Read more

Patterns on Top of Patterns

14 - 1

There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns.
If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself.
What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher. what we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish.
There is no free will.
There are no variables.

Strategy vs. Tactics

*This was supposed to be posted before the How-to guide, oops. My apologies for the mix up.



Introduction (from Wikipedia) Strategy is a high level plan to achieve one or more goals under conditions of uncertainty. Strategy is important because the resources available to achieve these goals are usually limited. Tactic(s) may refer to a plan, procedure, or expedient for promoting a desired end or result

Strategy – Tactics difference in military usage

In military usage, a distinction is made between strategy and tactics.

Strategy is the utilization, during both peace and war, of all of a nation’s forces, through large-scale, long-range planning and development, to ensure security or victory.

Tactics is the military science that deals with securing objectives set by strategy, especially the technique of deploying and directing troops, ships, and aircraft in effective maneuvers against an enemy.

English: In this file photo, Soldiers patrol an area near the village of Kowtay, Khowst province, Afghanistan, earlier this summer. Soldiers like these may soon see a change in tactics as the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan ardently believes that conventional military thinking and actions won’t win the counterinsurgency war there.

I feel we need to rethink how we go up against this elusive, (sneaky fear mongers) enemy we’re up against. As in every other war we’ve fought, new and improved tactics and strategies were used to combat the enemy, and we used anything we could think of. (going as far as ALMOST launching a strike on Japan using tiny IED strapped to bats). I’m far from being an expert on warfare, way FAR but I thought this is good food for thought that at least WE (citizens) chew on.

So in closing I’l leave you with a final tidbit that should sum this all up:

Tactics : what it takes to win the battle.

Strategy : what it takes to win the war.

Beating ISIS: A How-to Guide


I read an article published on 9/11 that detailed a strategy that, in my opinion would help defeat this growing problem of terrorism we find ourselves facing. Albeit, it would take time, unlike taking the tactical approach and laying down the carpet for them. (massive air strikes). Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for that at this point–and I HATE war–but it’s hard to hide from the fact that it has been waged on us. Read more

UPDATE: 13 Sept 2014


Aircraft Carrier USS Gerald R. Ford

I’ve been MIA again and have some catching up to do but in my defense, I’ve been busy researching a couple of interesting finds that I plan to share here. Up next, we’re going to compare tactics and strategy. (There’s a method to my madness)!

Oh, this picture. This shows us just how massive these floating cities are. Absolutely amazing.
