Captain Hate

If Ralph Peters is against something, by definition it's the correct course of action.

Captain Hate

Newsmax prints a lot of complete nonsense:

Back in 2008 I started a book. Self-published two years later.

I still stand by my conclusion that the next big war would be the war of ideas because they can cross borders virally.

1) teach children to defend themselves against words, words, words

2) work to convince others to value both society with others and peaceful problem resolution.

3) recognize you must defend against some others who will try to control or kill you for their own reasons.

4) understand that principles are experiences/processes shown to have worked reliably in the past, can work now, and are projected to still work in the future ... and that they must be understood, passed on, and re-validated by each new generation.

I am proud that what I wrote back then still seems to stand the test of time.

henry

sbw, with all that our kids are taught to be afraid of words and to seek safe spaces where they can control the words used. Also know as how to lose the next war before it even starts.

This is the kind of hot take i expected from Dana ward, the taliban are an outgrowth of isi and general intelligence, the ttp even more so.

I lack confidence in the top brass promoted during the BOzo years and now advising Trump.

I read--and I can't remember where now--the strategic changes in place when we retook Mosul--small teams, not massed forces led by a group leader which infiltrated known ISIS groups and killed them. Didn't look like the Iraqi teams were the Redcoats--more like the American rebels. A huge shift in tactics. DJT knows it's only a matter of time before the Dems knife him (and out troops) in the back again so I expect we will not be doing the war their slo mo , ineffecient PC way.

Captain Hate

Although Iggy has history on his side on this, I don't think Mattis is planning on losing. So I'm torn...

 narciso.

Exactly the red coats in that case ended up being Islamic state, like the villain in house of spies, the nature of small unit warfare that galula recommended in Algeria, that had some success in tal afar. This was having done success in south Vietnam as molar pointed out until the diem coup


Dumb luck undone alert mossos officer prevented the catastrophe smb outlined in the last thread

Jack is Back!

Ralph Peters knows more than Mattis? or Kelly? or the JCS? Its easy to be a LC. Making the jump to Colonel and beyond takes a lot of command knowledge and execution. Where did he fall flat. He is a naysayer, or as the Flemish call them "piss vinegaar" - sour puss - always whining. Never positive about anything that our command structure does.

Sour Grapes from a Sour Puss!

Since he got the travel pause right I listen to what he points out:

I agree, JiB. Peter's makes for a lively interview, but what ever happened to the time when we backed our President and military leaders as we went into action?

These days, the media can always find someone like Peters who is willing to undercut the President before he even takes action. He should know better.

Dave (in MA)

Somebody over at Insty pointed out that the Command Master Chief of the USS John S. McCain is a...

You guessed it, sociologist.

RattlerGator

Good link, Clarice!

We need to have *much* more faith in Trump here, too. I saw Eric Prince last night on Tucker's show. He wasn't pleased with the apparent commit of 4,000 additional troops.

But that isn't what the President announced, is it?

In that link provided by Clarice, Conservative TreeHouse had a damn good TL;DR image they posted on this matter:

Trump Strategy in Afghanistan

YMMV, but that damn sure works for me.

That griddle is working overtime:

This is your brain on frum

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Korea was a war that could have been won.
Vietnam was a war that could have been won.
Afghanistan is not.
What strategic value does it have? It gives Iran and Pakistan a cheap easy way to punish us while we do nothing to them and provides no linked value or jumping off point to any other region besides the benighted -stans to the north. It also puts us at a disadvantage to Russia while keeping its southern flank protected by our own troops but provides us with no great pressure on Russia itself. Together that all amounts to a significant negative strategic value.

George Santayana is our friend. Other countries are not.

Barbara

Eric Prince last night on Tucker's show. He wasn't pleased with the apparent commit of 4,000 additional troops.

I wouldn't think he'd be pleased given his proposal for Afghanistan. (Contractors "advising" the ANA and operating under ROEs essentially set by the Afghan National Government.)

I can't tell you how happy I was to hear President Trump describe his plan in general last night. Especially the part about changing those ridiculous Rules of Engagement that have evolved from bad to worse over the last fifteen years.

Porchlight

I was going to post the same TL;DR that RattlerGator did. Hard to disagree with any of that and it is an accurate summary of the speech.

Porchlight

He wasn't pleased with the apparent commit of 4,000 additional troops.

That's from a report, not the speech.

I'm not in the business of believing this stuff until I see it officially confirmed - has that happened?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

Did you know the Saudis and the GCC have built up an impressive fighting force organized as small, independent units? Did you know they are beating the crap out of ISIS and are working with the Iraqi Army and the US Army?

Every army that has been defeated in Afghanistan went there with the idea of conquest and colonization. All we are doing is killing terrorists. The Afghanis can do whatever they want with their government: constitutional republic, monarchy, tribal league, or something they come up with on their own. It's up to them whether they embrace Sharia law and whether they send their daughters to school. We are no longer trying to remake them in our image.

ALL this is about is killing terrorists and making sure that they don't get nuclear weapons from Pakistan. We are stuck there until that is accomplished.

I do not think pulling out unilaterally is the best course of action. We already saw what happened when Obama pulled out of Iraq.

Clarice Feldman

MM, that was the original plan in Iraq00get Saddam and his henchmen and turn it over to the locals. Thank Colin Powell for persuading Bush otherwise and dragging this out.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Porchlight,

No it has not been confirmed anywhere, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little detail placed in a fake report to spot leakers.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Clarice,

Long ago, my heart sank when I saw that State was getting involved in Iraq. I knew nothing good would come of it.

Barbara

Right, Porchlight. I meant to mention that. Before the speech, that was the "inside" information on what the President would say.

I was relieved that he didn't say anything of the sort. It's more in keeping with his method of operation. So, someone either cooked up that number and fed it to the media, and/or it was never part of the President's plans in the first place. It might prove useful to find out who gave the media that figure.

Old Lurker

Words which should never be linked "Thank Colin Powell"

Larry Schweikart‏ @LarrySchweikart 4m4 minutes ago

Yesterday's volunteer meeting to work the Trump event in Phoenix had more than double the numbers expected.

Yeah, he's "losing support"

=====================================

Meanwhile, Fox is ginning up interest in the potential for violence. I turned off the live feed due to the salivating over it.

It looks to me like the mayor has allowed protesters to get pretty close to the entrance of the auditorium, which means people will have to run a gauntlet of howling anti-Trump people. Also present will be Bikers for Trump for protection of Trump supporters, so the potential for fisticuffs looms large.

The Mayor should be chastised for not protecting citizens, if you ask me. I think the governor should call up the National Guard.

Captain Hate

Thank Colin Powell for persuading Bush otherwise and dragging this out.

So good to have that rancid turd on the outside, although him stabbing the Bushes in the back is funny in retrospect.

Porchlight

Agreed, MM and Barbara. I lean toward the "leak to catch leakers" theory. There were a number of players at Camp David a few days ago, and I'm betting not all of them (or their staffs) have been cleared as potential leakers.

henry

Oh, Russian collusion found. NY AG Schneiderman doing the colluding, not the finding.

Captain Hate

The Mayor should be chastised for not protecting citizens, if you ask me.

That ham faced loser's grin in the photo on an earlier thread reminded me of McOffal.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Let's all remember that before Bill Kristol backed John McCain in 2000, he spent MONTHS trying to get Colin Powell to run. Alma Powell dug her feet in because she was afraid for his safety.

It was only when Powell put the kabosh on the idea that Kristol went to McCain. And when Bush won, Kristol would meet with McCain in DC for nefarious plotting (they were spotted at a restaurant as regulars).

Which reminds me that ANY candidate or action that Kristol supports is pretty much a "no thanks" for me.

Clarice Feldman

If anyone can find out who did the Presidential approval poll touted by the waPo today and what the demographics were, I'd appreciate it. Probably Peter Hart (Hillary with a 13 pt lead) and well, you know hamburger helper polls they use as well as I do.

Abadman

The problem is the terrain and lack of infrastructure. It is hard to have a central government when it takes hours if not days to get somewhere. It is even harder to project power. I'm not sure bigger is necessarily better in Afghanistan.

In my opinion we need to change our definition of winning. I think a lighter footprint with an emphasis on managing and monitoring local areas to reduce Taliban activity acknowledging it will not be eliminated.

This seemed to be the strategy in 2005 when I was there and at the time it seemed to be working. Or at least it wasn't worse than out current strategy.

Afghanistan is not going to be won with overwhelming strength of conventional forces. This should be obvious to anyone who has spent any time there away from Bagram or Kabul.

Just my opinion, and I'm Med Corps so what would I know

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--Did you know the Saudis and the GCC have built up an impressive fighting force organized as small, independent units? Did you know they are beating the crap out of ISIS and are working with the Iraqi Army and the US Army?--

There is no question we and even at times the Iraqis and Afghans can kill lots of foot soldiers. [I remain unconvinced the Saudis have any impressive fighting forces, as would the Houthis in Yemen, but maybe they're making progress. It's still irrelevant and may in the long run be detrimental to us]
We killed gigantic masses of Koreans and Chinese and Vietnamese and still didn't win those wars.
The people we're killing are not threats to the US. The threat to the US is Saudi Arabia far more than the ISIS foat guckers. The threat is an expansionist Islam.
Unless and until we take on the seats of power in that expansionism; the Kingdom, Iran, Pakistan and now Turkey we are not fighting a winnable war if stopping the expansion of Islam is how we define victory. And that better be the definition because that is the threat and it always has been.
"Taking them on" doesn't mean destroying them but it does mean a credible threat exists that if they don't stop their expansionism they will be destroyed and imminently.

Europe is seemingly beyond hope and faces a different expansionism of mass migration largely from other countries than the big four. They have the means to end it obviously but it seems less and less likely they have the will.
We'll see.

Good Morning! I'm dreading the return of Congress after Labor Day. They have 12 legislative days in September and we will know (if we don't already) how uncooperative the GOPe,Uniparty and other random a**holes will be in stifling Trump's agenda. Between Ryan's staged townhall with Tapper and the interview on MSNBC with Susan Collins,I'm in a mood. The only good thing about her interview is that it got lost in the eclipse excitement. We get it Susan,you don't like Trump,pander to the moonbats in southern Maine (sorry cboldt) and turn your back on the 2nd District,who by the way,voted for Trump.

cboldt

henry - good link to "Russian collusion fraud." Note that a good number of bigwig GOP are also beneficiaries. As long as the Russian money is funneled through a dual US/Russian citizen, all legal.

Rocco - I would expect a SC for Hillary announcement to come via more formal and less energetic channels. The rally tonight is officially part of the Trump campaign. I think the Reddit poster is winging it, and just hoping to be proven right. Do that enough times, and eventually you get a hit - like Jeane Dixon.

Old Lurker

No sweat, Marlene. In those 12 days they will get 13 appropriation bills and all other budget related matters signed into law and also an increase in the Debt Ceiling.

What? You doubt Paul Ryan and his 100 day plan?

sbw

Killing terrorists is one way to make them stop. Trump wants to to choke their logistics.

Freakonomics would say the goal is to make uncivil society more unprofitable than civil society. Trump would agree.

And likely will propose taking the profitability out of illegal drugs, too.

Ignatz,

I simply disagree with you. I do not see how we can take on an entire religion which happens to be the largest in the world. More important to me is getting the militant arm to stand down or face the opprobrium of their own people. Re-frame the fight as civilization vs. barbarism, which Trump has already begun to do.

Afghanistan is right next to Pakistan. ISIS has already gone in. I don't want those crazies getting their hands on nukes, which is not an unlikely scenario if we pull out.

MM - Christians still outnumber Muslims.
I don;t think framing the issue as civilized vs. barbarians is the only way, or even the best way. My view is that the religions represent different civilizations, and of course each civilization is entitled to find itself the superior one. An attempt to peacefully combine civilizations is doomed, and the side that sticks to its own "superiority complex" will be the ultimate victor.

That is roughly the basis for the FACT that the leaders of Western (what used to be Christian) civilization are deliberately committing that civilization to suicide. Their view of the future has no room for religion.

Anyway, if the PTB would decide to avoid mingling gasoline and air, the risk of explosion would not come to be.

We spent some time hanging out with Peters a number of years ago. Like the NR gang in those days, he made a lot of sense. However, when I brought up the contractors like Blackwater, he went off like a Roman candle.

I don't see how it's a special counsel announcement. For one thing, that wouldn't be announced by the president. More importantly, it wouldn't be announced to at a political rally.

I would expect more of a somber "We hoped to avoid this, but the evidence is too strong" kind of thing, in a closed room at the DoJ with Trump far away and able to claim to have read about it in the papers.

He could even use one of Obama's exact quotes, just for fun.

Old Lurker,

Am seeing more hints that compromised navigation systems might be involved. I am hopinig this is just the answer they are giving to make the press run off in that direction, since the thought that we have ships with useless electronics is pretty scary.

You can relieve a lot of admirals and captains and get new competence in place. I don't know what we do if the electronics has been compromised.

Old Lurker

MM, a) it is hard to figure how a hacked system could make all the electronics blind to nearby traffic, especially radar like used on every boat longer than about 20'. b) how many times have we been told that the navy posts, you know, human watchers looking in all directions just in case, you know, the fancy electronics get Game Boy'd. c) I remain dumbstruck that after the Fitzgerald another captain in the same regions would not have everybody on the lookout to ensure that he would not become the next former ship driver in the USN.

matt, deplore me if you must

I liked what I heard last night. Trump outlined a no nonsense approach that hold the Afghan and Pakistani governments to account. What I would expect out of Mattis, Kelly and the others.

One really doesn't want to mess with Mattis. he is out there trying his best to repair the damage done by Sec's Touchy and Feely.

"We are warfighters and wen win." We rain hell down upon our enemies, or let them know that if they test us we will. Very Big Stick. He needs to speak softly at some point, but even there, Trump's actions have been sound.

He called NATO on the carpet and then upped our contribution. he is trying to wean Western Europe off of Russian natural gas and give them options.

The military has lost a lot of its experienced warfighters, but I think we still have enough to make a difference in Afghanistan and the Tribal Areas. Catch them crossing the border and clear out their safe havens.

Basically Bush and Obama would not go into Cambodia, if you will. I think Trump will give DoD the leeway to do so if they must. Socom's, Drones, attack aircraft. Like what they are doing in Iraq, which looks to be working.

BTW, the Iraqis last week asked the Iranians to butt out of their country. I don't know if you caught that. We'll see what happens, but even the Shia are sick of being Iranian tools.

All of these things have developed since January.

Israeli-Arab cooperation, marginalizing Erdogan, renewed hope and on the ground results in Iraq and against ISIS in Syria. All of these strategies have been supported by this administration. Not a peep recently out of the Russians over Syria, either. lately.

But wait! Statues!

You realize you've already received your wish, right? Iggy seems to be overlooking this, too. These areas of responsibility -- with economic consequences for failure to be constructive, as defined by the United States, that is long overdue.

And it is controlled by the President -- Congress trying to screw that up will be very problematic for them. Special interests trying to screw that up will be very problematic for the special interests when you have an administration that knows how to play the perceptions game and punch back much harder than it was punched.

All in all, I'm feeling pretty damn good the way this is shaking out.
