Missing studies: Arms (observation)
In reviewing Military spending,
I picked up an interesting observation.
The military is changing some priorities
from heavy to lighter weight platforms
that can be air dropped, because of the
shifting violence paradigm.
Smaller wars, insurgents, and adapting
for faster deployment, more mobility.
Its clear from their paradigm they
believe the future holds more Afpak
type battles. Small groups rather than
And I agree with them.
But what does it actually take to
make some one take up arms?
Are there more effective options
than taking up arms?
How can 'they' effect change with
out taking up arms?
Do 'THEY' give off signals leading up
to the point of taking up arms.
A warning they are going to get violent?
Could USA send them a Lobbyist?
Someone to show them how to more effectively
get changes made, without taking up arms.
This type intervention could be a great
force multiplier, battle deferment and
Change the domain from the battle field
to political arena. Make the Battle Field
a domain of last resort.
Could Bin Laden have been spotted early
and routed away from violence?
Anyone know of any studies in these areas?
Military might spend the cost of one tank
to find out answers to these battle questions,
great risk/reward ratio.
Battle deferment and alternatives.
The current politically correct view
is to switch from interrogations to
The paradigm is in its self, self defeating.
Putting a bee or bug in a cell is not illegal
of abusive. It may cause alot of psychological
stress, but psy stress is not to be avoided.
It is the difference between an interrogation
and an interview.
The key to successful interrogations is successfully
applying psychological pressure, stress to get them
The context of this paradigm is very telling.
Context is the Global war on terrorism,
and the real possibility of a rogue
nuclear package attack from a non-state
That means no "MAD" defense possible.
If there had been a nuclear attack in the USA
the same operators that used bugs would be
testifying to Congress why they didn't do more.
So far they have been successful.
All attacks have been stopped.
We warned the Feds that al Qaeda was searching for
physical directions to a University in Hungary.
And a month later the US government removed
241 pounds of plutonium from the same Hungarian
al Qaeda is looking to get its hands on a nuke, still.
Interrogations should be continued with bugs if they
want, use psychological pressure where and when you can.
Interrogations should not be turned into Interviews.
The huge criminal banking combines MO.
They first started making some smaller
sub-prime paper packages, and with
RE prices remaining moderate were
able to sell this paper for a nice profit.
And they got their lobbyist to get Glass
Segal repealed so the Banks could move out
this profitable paper in bigger chunks.
Then the RE bubble starts and these pieces
of paper become very profitable as the loans
are rolled over into the increase of the value
of the RE, over and over again.
And the Banks realize this RE bubble will
burst and when it does the value of the
sub-prime paper will plunge.
The banks discuss this.
But the Banks see others making very good
profits as the owners roll the loans over
to include the value of the huge price increases
in the RE. Two or Three times.
But the Banks are so greedy they start holding
their own BAD sub-prime paper for the Great profits.
Of course the Banks thought they would know when to get
out, and didn't count on other smaller brother banks
holding the Toxic paper.
And the RE bubble burst, defaults mounted, and the
Banks themselves got caught with huge positions in
the Bad toxic sub-prime paper and huge losses.
The home owners lost their homes and the Tax Payer
is bailing out the Banks, and the Big Banks don't
want to lend to other banks, now, because they
know the other banks have huge positions of this
bad toxic paper.
And the Banks don't trust themselves.
They don't trust Brother banks. NO LOANS.
The Banks brought on this World Depression
and the American tax payer bailed them out, all
the while paying the same Banks "loan shark" interest
rates vig/juice as high as 100% in some cases,
and around 30% for the rest of the credit card
Grateful SOB's aren't they.
Congress has spent more on the Banking Fraud toxic
paper crime; the Bank bailout, than they have spent on the GWOT
( Iraq I & II, Afghan and Pakistan).
Where are the prosecutions?
Pre-emptive Iranian attack.
The Press have given some
coverage to the story on Israeli
preparing to take out Iranian Nuclear sites.
Lets look at the Risk/Reward ratio.
Iran gets Nuke, think N.Korea but
with a Mula that believes in the 13th
Kimmy but with suicide tendency's.
With a Nuke.
see Risks below, #1 thru #3.
NO nuke or at least a long delay.
#1) Iran attacks thru proxy terrorists,
Syria, Lebanon, etc.
#2) Activates cells in America.
Train SWAT to deal with RPG's.
#3) They will give dirty material to
#4) Iran joins al Qaeda? ( but without a nuke! ).
Also sends clear message to Irans partner;
The first attack: will be at defenses and
Second attack: ( depending on Irans response )
Taking out all Iranian Military,
Killing EVERY IRANIAN TANK, in Iran for
IED support of terrorist in Iraq and Afpak or
just the civilian communications, tv, phone
Internet, all the way up to selective EMP
bursts, all electronics DOWN, but very few
civilian deaths. Which Shuts down
the country for a few years.
Iran has taken an American hostage under
color of law, they fear a strike.
Again they are stalling for TIME....
