  1. God dammit! Then who’s going to keep Santa clause in control everybody knows Vlad has a loose policy on that new reindeer meth Rudolph has been cooking up.

    So do you guys think we should have you all go kill people to get your better killing positions? Is that what your subtly asking? Because the American people are tired of pointless wars and a war over ice seams wanting.

  2. Well the Russian asset in the Whitehouse is definitely rolling over.

    > The head of the North American Aerospace Defence Command underscored the need to modernize the aging early-warning system Thursday, while cautioning that the United States and Canada have lost their long-standing military advantage in the Arctic to Russia.

    > The Norad commander also highlighted concerns with China's increasing interest in the Arctic, which includes what O'Shaughnessy described as "Signs of a nascent but growing strategic co-operation" with Russia that included a combined bomber patrol last July.

    > Created in the 1950s in response to the threat of a Soviet attack by bombers or ballistic missiles over the Arctic, Norad is unique in the world as a joint operation between the U.S. and Canada.

  4. The Upgraded Early Warning Radar (UEWR) system was upgraded between 2009 and 2016. And now the DoD is trying to justify the the means to keep the funding, they thought would never end, from being diverted and marked for a ‘border wall’… Maybe if they convince the Trump Administration that walls do not stop missiles and airplanes from crossing into North American air space.

  5. “Military says scary stuff to justify asking for more money”

  6. Eh. Just build some Chinese style fake islands and put runways and artillery on them.
