  1. Speaking of active development; http://www.dreamcastlive.net/blogs/

  3. I think this runs deeper than just North Korea. The Norks rhetoric suddenly increased to eleven when late last month the border dust-up in the Sikkim/Bhutan region between China and India kicked-off. Both India and China have been slinging more heated rhetoric and increasing threats back and forth more than normal in these last few days, with lots of hardware and mechanized units being deploy to the region by both countries; with the Nork threat against Guam coming just within hours of the Chinese implying they would initiate some "kinetic movement" in response to the whole Dokhlam situation (A Nork strike on Guam would be very beneficial to Chinese interests in the region as well). I think Trump's threats are aimed at the Kim Regime, but also as a veiled threat towards China. Mostly because China wouldn't allow a US lead NATO campaign against North Korea, solely because the Chinese can not allow the US/NATO to establish a base beyond the DMZ in a defeated Best Korea, within visual range of the Chinese Mainland. In effect North Korea has served as a buffer zone for them, which explains their continued acceptance of the Kim Dynasties flagrant and psychotic actions over the past 50 years. There is a growing consensus among defense pundits that we've been courting India rather heavily in recent months, to influence favor in hopes of an alliance or pact with them, formal or otherwise. The idea being, India has the numbers to soak up massive causalities in a ground war with China, while the US has the air and naval power covered. The only wildcard in the deck is Russia, due to the BRICS alliance and their very large border demarcation with China, but feelings are that due to the recently development of rather frosty attitudes among Russia and China, Russia may ver well be indifferent about any movement against China, military or otherwise (especially if India sides with the US). Personally, I partially agree with the assessment that Russia would be indifferent. Russia has been vying to gain access to US markets, to help modernize and integrate their own. They have a rapidly growing middle-class, who're eager to work and with their new lease on capitalism and their rising industrial capabilities could become quite the economic powerhouse in the next two decades or so. China is direct competition for them in that regard, but with the Chinese out of the picture in a major way, it would pave a path for them to establish that economic and trade relationship with the US. With the "collusion" rhetoric aside, a working relationship with the Russians would be very beneficial in terms of US foreign policy and as their military an diplomatic weight would aid drastically in combating terrorism on a global scale and to help stabilize conflicted regions, like Africa (which the Chinese are quickly moving in on). Trump has one of the best military minds of our lifetime as SecDef. I don't think Mattis would let Trump do anything drastic, unless it was warranted.
  4. Not that I buy the Nork hyperbole, but a strike on Guam could serious hamper both PACOM and global US response capabilities.
  5. Nearly all states have adopted Common Core, with the exception of Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia, Alaska, Nebraska, Indiana, and South Carolina. All Common Core has done is provide a "standardization" of educational requirements, it hasn't actually addressed any of the issues faced by education over the past 30+ years. It is literally a "one size fits all" standards approach designed to prepare children for college testing.
  6. The five red are Federal #4 Magnum and green one is Remington Magnum Express #4. The other two bandoleers are both 00Buck, one batch is Winchester Super-X and the other is Estate.
  7. If it wasn't obvious, I have a penchant for weapons, particularly firearms. So this is a thread for members to share their "arsenals", be it a sole home-defense/self-defense firearm to a Class 3 NFA collection that could support an invasion into Panama or a collection of rare Nippon blades to an air rifle have for target shooting or hunting. Wishlist and pending items are welcome, too. my meager "arsenal";
  8. I was a bit of both, depended on the scenario.
  9. Gunfire, explosions, screams, and LOTS running...I'll leave your imaginations to the rest.
  10. One of my favorites. Based on some interesting, high profile cases of real espionage, primarily the "Illegals Program". I'm a big fan of the original and the original 95' film, the follow sequels and anime series "Stand Alone Complex" and "2nd GIG"...not really a fan of the more recent "Arise" and "Alternative Architecture" series. Very excited to see it. Indeed it was.
  11. Now that's what I'm talking about. My staple is Black Velvet, then I get the cheapest ginger ale I can find and it makes the best BV and Ginger.
  12. It is now.

  14. The Turks are an embarrassment to NATO. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A mix of raw and news footage of AFP forces fighting terrorist forces in Marawi. Reports show that Abu Sayyaf has linked with Maute (ISIS) and the foreign fighters (terrorist mercenaries) in their siege on the city of Marawi and other attacks across the island of Mindanao. Abu Sayyaf has previously been supported and allied with the 14K Tirad out of Hong Kong.
