Yes, I saw that, the thing about hypersonic missiles would be the trajectory of said instrument dont think it could maneuver very well, because of the angle of approach.

The House and Senate ASC's are cutting funds for the Navy's LCS ships.

https://news.usni.org/2019/06/13/house-senate-defense-bills-tough-on-littoral-combat-ship-programs

I don't think aytone is feeling a lot of love for those ships.

Narciso79

Well the house committee would have us down to paper sailing boats but ths design seemed contradictory to the objectives

On the LCS, I think somebody said, "We'll make them modular." And somebody else heard, "Plug and play, how cool is that."

Narciso79

I dont think it works like that, I'm reminded in a round about way about space above and beyond a space opera with military particularly marine overtones their fighters which operated in the vacuum and atmosphere had modular crew compartment that would descend to the aircraft.

Narciso79

That were trying to avoid a scenario like what occasioned the point du hoc approach or that of navarrone.

South Carolina’s Senator Lindsey Graham joined me this morning. He is chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

He's in fire-breathing mode. He makes Joe Bolton sound tame. He's talking radical action against Iran, Venezuela and Cuba.

Narciso,

I was trying to Be witty. I don'y know if the LCS design was wrong from the start, a mismanaged project, or one doomed by budget cuts.

I'm not convinced it's worth further effort.

I've seen the idea of pilot pods that mate with space fighters. You can't eject in space, so an eject-able pod would make sense, provided that you won and could retrieve those pods.

Point du Hoc and Navaronne? I've lost you there.

Another Bob

Anyone else think this Iran kerfuffle is being instigated by the dems to try and draw Trump into a conflict with Iran before the 2020 election?

Feinstein dining with the Iranian FM? Kerry meeting with the Iranians, supposedly over the nuke deal? Who else?

Another Bob

Potentially a no-lose scenario for the dems, no?

Trump gets into a shooting conflict and it’s “see, Trump’s just a lapdog taking Israel’s orders from Kushner”.

Trump fails to get into a shooting conflict and it’s “Trump is a dangerous know-nothing being rolled by the Iranians”.

Now the President is retweeting Dan Scavino. Some of the posts are old, like his handshaking at the Air Force Academy. I won't post those. However, here is a Scavino tweet that the President retweeted which sort of goes with the article clarice posted at 7:48:

Another Bob,

I share your concern, but things are a bit different over there than they were 3 years ago. For one thing, the Saudis have built up their military.

I know having Trump in a lose-lose situation is what the dems hope for, but he is a lot smarter than Kerry and Feinstein.

FBI/DOJ Never Obtained the Unredacted CrowdStrike Reports on ‘Russian Hack’ of DNC Servers

Former FBI Director James Comey testified that the FBI asked the DNC for the compromised servers several times and they refused to hand them over to the bureau.

Instead of taking the servers, Comey and the DNC agreed that CrowdStrike would investigate the so-called ‘hack’ and they ultimately churned out three “draft reports.”

According to the court filing, “Copies of these reports were subsequently produced voluntarily to the government by counsel for the DNC and DCCC. At the time of the voluntary production, counsel for the DNC told the government that the redacted material concerned steps taken to remediate the attack and to harden the DNC and DCCC systems against future attack.”

...

“According to counsel, no redacted information concerned the attribution of the attack to Russian actors,” the filing stated.

---

The DNC's lawyer provided the Crowdstrike reports to the Govt. He said the redacted parts weren't relevant to the investigation.

The FBI never looked into it.

Extraneous, the news people are calling the May weather historic for rain and flooding. But May and June are the months we get the most rain. I think we got about 19" of rain here in May. So far in June we've gotten three or four inches. We've gotten l.56" since midnight. It's when the rain comes in a fast down burst that we have problems (personally). We aren't near the river that flows through our town. Parts of our little city flooded from the river. Ours is just storm water.

Tulsa and Sand Springs, Claremore (Will Rogers home), south to Bixby, Broken Arrow, Ft. Gibson and Muskogee, and other places south of us had terrible flooding. Some of the pictures of people's homes are astounding. Water up to the roof, then when it recedes, liquid mud inside. People are tearing out flooring, walls down to the studs. Throwing everything they own away. Some are just grateful to find a loved one's picture.

There is the Keystone Dam west of Tulsa that prevented some of the Arkansas flooding into parts of the city, but along Riverside Drive in Tulsa flooded. Major flooding. Also in Sand Springs just minutes west of Tulsa.

The Army Corp of Engineers kept raising the amount of water they were releasing from the Keystone Dam causing flooding downstream from the Arkansas. And, the water coming in from north and east of there was flooding the countryside. They were really worried about the levees. The National Guard patrolled the levees constantly because they were afraid they would fail. The levees are old, and officials were overjoyed they did their job. One or two big holes opened in a couple, but helicopters brought in fill. There were pictures of the guardsmen up to their armpits in the water passing sandbags to shore them up.

They call the eastern part of the state 'Green Country'. It's really green right now. :) July and August are hot and usually dry here, but the state is full of rivers and lakes and people enjoy water-related vacations. For the most part, life here is what you make it. :)
