The US Military is Not Ready for World War III

by John Galt June 15, 2016 19:45 ET Sigh…now I really miss the 1980’s. Not for the reason anyone might think as the women were fun, the music better, and the U.S. military was recovering from it’s Jimmy Carter induced slumber. As an American citizen in that era, the threat was not from some Jihadi Joe coming to the good old U.S.A. on a student visa or refugee program here to rape or kill my wife or shoot up night clubs. In fact by the late 1980’s the biggest threat to…

by John Galt July 27, 2015 21:40 ET 2. World War III World War III appears to be on the horizon with some postings around the internet speculating it could start in the magic time frame of September or October of this year. Of course, I have warned what would happen if there was an outbreak of war between the United States, Russia, and China.

The Saudi King Returns the Insult to Obama – Will not Attend Camp David GCC Meeting

by John Galt May 10, 2015 19:00 ET The ongoing tit-for-tat exchange of diplomatic slights continued today as Riyadh sent the message to President Obama in a loud and clear signal: You are irrelevant. When President Obama initially refused to attend the State Funeral for the deceased Saudi King the House of Saud and all the member states of the Arabian Peninsula rightfully viewed this as an insult. King Salman, in typical Saudi fashion, has decided to return the insult and dismiss the importance of President Obama’s conference in one move…

2015 Russia to Return to a Nuclear Cold War Policy – Strategic Forces now a Priority

by John Galt December 29, 2014 17:55 ET As the Obama administration diminishes and destroys America’s strategic nuclear force capabilities with mindless orders like removing the MIRV capabilities of our USAF ground based missiles or refusing to upgrade our SLBM forces over the first six years of his administration, the Russians are remodeling their military to mirror the old Soviet Union’s trigger finger first and retaliatory capabilities. ITAR-TASS, the Russian news agency, has the frightening details in this story published tonight: Strategic nuclear force to become Defense Ministry’s priority 2015 —…

And once again, Our Tax Dollars Spent on ABM Technology is a Spectacular Flop

  by John Galt July 6, 2013 18:50 ET Think the US media is going to highlight this technological disaster? Nope, no way.

4/11 0530 ET Korea Crisis Update: The Quiet Before the Storm

  by John Galt April 11, 2013 05:30 EDT The eerie quiet in North Korea seems to be an indication, if past patterns are any indication, of a coming storm of action and activity.  Overnight the focus seemed to be the shell game of moving and relocating various launchers around airfields and the raising of launch ramps into the firing position only to have nothing happen. Kim Jong-un appears to have a less than unified front in control of his own military and some analysts are wondering if he is calling…


4/10 1900 ET Korean Crisis Update: Good Morning Koreanam

  by John Galt April 10, 2013 19:00 EDT There is a lot of speculation, including yours truly, that a WMD attack with swift, shocking results would create the largest dilemma for the United States, Japan, and their allies. Another postulation making the rounds is what if North Korea launched a limited conventional attack on the South then both parties sued for peace leaving the U.S. with egg on its face as China brokers a long term treaty which permanently ends the war between the two nations. This would be a…


4/10 0600 ET – Korea Crisis Update

  by John Galt April 10, 2013 06:00 EDT The news cycle appears to have slowed down slightly but postings (to be treated as hearsay for now) from West Coast U.S. residents on various message boards seem to indicate elevated movement of American military assets at bases in California and Washington state.

Here are the headlines from overnight via Yonhap…

North Korea Crisis: The US West Coast IS Vulnerable to WMD Attack

  by John Galt April 8, 2013 2100 EDT Initially when the current crisis between the United States and North Korea accelerated I dismissed the possibility of a North Korean attack on the United States with nuclear weapons as a remote fantasy due to the crude status of their ICBM technology. From that perspective I was correct and hopefully I did not confer a false sense of security to anyone in the United States about the danger from the little nut job north of the 38th Parallel; I admit now that…

Prepetorial #1: “I saw a flash”

By John Galt October 30, 2007 The following is my first “prepetorial”; a word I concocted to try to introduce the idea of “prepping” along with one of my editorials. The events in italic are completely fictitious and hopefully will never happen…. As I was meeting with my client in the town of Port Charlotte, about 45 miles from my home, the air seemed unusually warm for this October morning. The meeting did not go well as my customer was in no mood to purchase anything as he said “let’s see…
