Well, when people focus on "nuclear weapons" and "space", the underlying assumption is that there are boundaries to war. There are no longer boundaries, war is everywhere.Who would think that? Absolutely everything is different.
Nobody's assuming. Just discussing the humorous idea that invasion is even something that's possible against the United States.I like how everyone assumes that a war in the 21st century will be fought like a war in the 20th century.
LMAOWell, when people focus on "nuclear weapons" and "space", the underlying assumption is that there are boundaries to war. There are no longer boundaries, war is everywhere.
War now is entirely different than that which occurred during the 20th century. Instead of war being defined as “using armed force to compel the enemy to submit to one’s will,” the 21st century definition of war has become “using all means, including armed force or non-armed force, military or non-military, and lethal and non-lethal means to compel the enemy to accept one’s interests.”
The People's Liberation Army published a book in 1999 that discusses this Unrestricted War strategy that China is currently using.
In essence, the PLA believes that China has the power to attack the United States economically in such a way that while the United States believes it is benefiting from trade relations with China, the ultimate results are so detrimental to the United States, its very greed at extolling the benefits of trading with China are its undoing. China can manipulate its currency to put its products at a distinct advantage with the United States; China can pump propaganda into the American media while restricting American media’s access to the Chinese media landscape; and China, using a nineteenth-century strategy, can force the United States to fight proxy wars with Chinese allies, thus draining American resources.
Cut the sarcasm please, totally not needed man.LMAO
Ugh.Breaking: 16 minutes ago - US withdrawal of diplomats from Iraq due to "imminent" Iran-linked threat, officials say
Yeah that's where I heard it earlier - Fox, they only did a small thing about it though because they were talking about it all during the Americas Newsroom hours.Ugh.
Yet no coverage from the "mainstream" media. Looks like Fox's big topic is abortion, Mila Jovavich and some actor who jumped off an overpass. CNN's got the Mueller investigation (of course), abortion and the Max 8.
Popular media likes to see a body count.
Oh I know that invasion is totally possible against the US. For example, stupid fire ants have invaded most of Texas and my backyard! Those ****ers!Nobody's assuming. Just discussing the humorous idea that invasion is even something that's possible against the United States.
But ultimately all wars are won with troops on the ground. No matter the technology.

it's kind of fun sitting in intel briefings...just came back from one 20 min ago. Interesting stuff. But at least this time there is reaction to data as opposed to few years ago where people dismissed the threat until it was highly vetted.Cut the sarcasm please, totally not needed man.

They are doing a partial evac of the US embassy in Iraq right now.
U.S. allies involved in operations in the Middle East appear uninterested in the increasingly bellicose rhetoric from the White House and Pentagon regarding Iran.www.militarytimes.com
Was reading that earlier, I don't blame them but F our allies, they tried to **** us over with NATO crap as well. US always has to lead from the front.It doesn't look like our allies want anything to do with Iran.
Gone, at least for now, are the halcyon days when strong military and political ties between Britain and the United States meant that Washington could assume it had a staunch partner for standing up to a foreign foe.www.foxnews.com
Be patient, when the cuban lizards get up your way they eat all the fire ants. I haven't seen a pile in a couple of years.Oh I know that invasion is totally possible against the US. For example, stupid fire ants have invaded most of Texas and my backyard! Those ****ers!
The only time NATO ever invoked Article 5 was when *we* were attacked. And this war, if it happens, would probably be the stupidest war since we claimed that Iraq had WMDs and ties to 9/11 as justification for going in there and had no plan for what we were going to do with it after we defeated their military. Two years earlier, we attacked Afghanistan (which was necessary) for harboring Osama bin Laden but failed to attack our back-stabbing "allies" in Saudi Arabia, which produced not only a strong majority of the 9/11 hijackers but also the man who led Al Qaeda.Was reading that earlier, I don't blame them but F our allies, they tried to **** us over with NATO crap as well. US always has to lead from the front.
You'll notice them slowly replacing the green ones, then the fire ants are next. Cuban lizards eat fire ants, roaches other small bugs. The only bad thing is the eat the green lizard eggs as well. They're hearty little beasts, some can grow to be six inches.I don't know if the person I hire is Cuban, all I know is that he speaks Spanish.

Taro is a root vegetable you may not be familiar with but it has been referred to as "chocolate for Asian people". You can find it in a myriad of Asian sweet treats so it wasn't surprising to see McDonald's in Hong Kong selling taro pies. So how does it taste? Let's find out....www.lifehacker.com.au
