Comments I’ve posted

  1. I posted a comment to John Ennis’ profile page on newmexicoliberty.com —

    Hey, John — Glad to see you here! There’s one of your fellow jarheads living in Santa Fe that you’ve just gotta meet one of these days — maybe at next year’s LP State Convention . . . ?

  2. I like the line Scott added to this one — “Apocalypse no.”

  3. Just watched the video titled Collateral Murder about the 12 July 2007 airstrike inBaghdad

  4. Re: Tom Mullins — Landmines on the (U.S.—Mexican) Border

    While the armed forces comprise 56 percent of discretionary spending, they only make up about 25 percent of the total budget —

    I agree that American forces are overly used abroad – Iraq and the “AfPak” theater are just the biggest examples. The predominate doctrine in “defense” circles these days revolves around the “power projection” concept —

    the capacity of a state to conduct expeditionary warfare, i.e. to intimidate other nations and implement policy by means of force, or the threat thereof, in an area distant from its own territory.

    The Pentagon has had its collective head up its power-projecting posterior since the end of WWII. I don’t (realistically) see an end to this idiocy any time soon.
