I have to say to my blog readers that the fecal material is now flowing fast, flowing heavy, and I can’t honestly say how this ongoing global chaos is going to play out. I realize many will say as it has been in the past, so will it be in the future. Nope, but the tidal wave of fecal material is not only not letting up, it is ramping up, combined with multiple military deployments all over the world. For example, in the link below we find that Russia is probing Alaska aggressively, along with multiple Chinese military deployments. I find it very disturbing that Russian nuclear combat capable planes are now cruising around Alaska.
US intercepts 4 Russian bombers, 2 fighter jets off Alaska coast
The U.S. intercepted six Russian aircraft off Alaska’s coast on Monday.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) said in a statement that it “positively identified and intercepted a total of four Tupolev Tu-95 bombers and two Su-35 fighters entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on May 20,” CNN reported Tuesday.
The ADIZ stretches some 200 miles off the coast of western Alaska.
NORAD confirmed the incident Tuesday morning via Twitter.
“NORAD fighters intercepted Russian bombers+fighters entering Alaskan ADIZ May 20. 2x Tu-95s were intercepted by 2x F-22s; a second group of 2x Tu-95+2x Su-35 was intercepted later by 2 more F-22’s; NORAD E-3 provided overall surveillance. The aircraft remained in int’l airspace,” NORAD said in a tweet.
NORAD Commander Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy said, “Our ability to deter and defeat threats to our citizens and vital infrastructure starts with detecting, tracking, and positively identifying aircraft our airspace. We are on alert 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.”
Next, we have a brutal analysis of the kind of lethal hurt Iran can do our forces in the Persian Gulf, and the Strait of Hormuz. I am not one of those morons who think Militant Islam is full incompetent yahoos. I think when our PC based, morally decadent, military forces, who don’t have the iron will our enemies have, the result will be bad for us. We rely too much on our technology, which our enemies have been studying, since 1991’s Desert Storm campaign, and figuring out ways to bypass it. When you have the people who are fighting you thinking death and martyrdom is acceptable, and even glorious, against a western culture that values nothing, believes in nothing, and doesn’t think anything is worth fighting for, all I can say is when those kind of troops go up against men who welcome death, the result will be a total military disaster. China, Iran, and Russia have spent the last 20 plus years planning how to defeat our advanced technology. nuff said. The link below indicates that Iran isn’t impressed with western ranting and raving. Why should they, when 12 year old boys put on suicide vests and blew up advancing Iraqi tanks back in the 1980s?

Iran could deploy missiles, sea mines, drones and thousands of battle-hardened jihadist militias across the Middle East if Tehran’s increased tensions with Washington descend into war.
Iranian sea mines pose a constant threat in the Gulf, while their missiles are capable of striking US warships and raining down chaos in Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Gulf monarchies.
Across the blood-soaked deserts they have battle-hardened jihadists ready for war with American troops in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.
Last week, unidentified assailants struck Saudi oil assets and on Sunday others fired a rocket into Baghdad´s heavily fortified ‘Green Zone’ that exploded near the U.S. embassy. Iran denied any role in either incident.
One final comment regarding the military ability of Iran. The US Navy did a Strait of Hormuz, and Persian Gulf combat drill many years ago. They put an Admiral in charge of the “aggressor forces,” ie the Iranians, and then sent in a couple of Aircraft Carrier Task Forces. The “Iranians,” then promptly sunk both US Aircraft Carriers, multiple fleet escorts, and logistics ships. The US Navy howled like a maniac, and ordered him to redo the exercise. What he did in the first exercise was to go into what is called asymetrical warfare, ie use high speed jet boats, armed with shoulder fired missiles, send in small patrol boats firing ship to ship missiles. He used mines, and sent in low flying fighter and bomber planes that overwhelmed our air defense systems. The list goes on, and on, but you get the point.
