Between the Lines:
Welcome to Monday Morning, and your healthy dose of Paranoid ravings from an isolated bunker.
Remember, Tinfoil is for amateurs! Get yourself a Faraday Cage, and cover the windows!
First off, Looks like the opening to Top Gun is happening...
Yep, complete with Russians. Oh man, this is just getting insane. Russians are supposed to be leaving right? And yet somehow, we've drawn lines that involve them in "our" airspace? When we're not even pretend legally in the country? I really wish we'd stop poking the bear with a stick.
So, apparently the DOD spent millions of dollars (22 to be precise) investigating UFO's in the theory that they were in fact enemy aircraft.
Yup, good old Project Blue Book, dusted off and served as nice fresh pork. And of course, we find out about it long after the money has been spent. Welp, nuttin' we can do about it NOW, so... What of course this little "Funny" story shows is how rampant corruption in the military is. For every one of these that we hear about are twenty more that we don't, many of which exist for the sole purpose of fresh ham hocks.
And here's an interesting little tidbit that is hidden in this "RUSSIA WAR BUILD UP" Story. About halfway down it notes that only a few bases can handle 5th generation aircraft.
Which means that our air power is extremely brittle and dependent on constant resupply. The upgrade and the move closer to Russia means that our leaders are failing to learn the lessons of the recent close incidents with Russia, and instead of looking for a counter, are doubling down on the first strike capability.
Overall, looks to me like the war machine is keeping on rolling. Here's hoping that they don't get the bodies to do this. If nothing else, we need to provide people with choices other than the military. We need folks able to live without desperately selling their freedom to a vast military machine.
