In a statement, Trump said that he would increase steel tariffs to 50 percent and threatened to end negotiations for a $100 billion trade deal with Turkey if they did not back down.
“The Order will authorize a broad range of consequences, including financial s…

When we do a rifle I was thinking my old levergun!
Though “standing between tyranny” may sound good.
I think a temporary stay of execution is a more apt description!
Those that would bitch about particular points of Trump’s Presidency have too easily forgotten where we would be under President Clinton 2.0!
As bad as 2.0 would have been, I guarantee this latest batch will…[Read more]

I thinking small and basic to start, nothing ellaborate.
Leaning towards pistol for the first one, if we have interest I was thinking a monthly event. Each one a little different, using a variety weapons.
Again something you can fit into your normal practice.

The old school version of this was a “Postal Match,” you shoot a course of fire and mail your target in to be scored.
What I am proposing is a brief basic course of fire where you post a video and/or picture(s). Just an opportunity to promote practice and camaraderie among our members.
Again something basic that you could add to your…[Read more]
JohnnyMac check your messages.
I don’t think so, though maybe a related offshoot.
The skill set of juggling large amounts of information and making a decision to act is the same. Though in my experience some have a harder time applying it to a situation outside of their established comfort zone.
As most here should know realistic training is the best way to achieve this…[Read more]

Thanks, this is very interesting to me.
Dehydration is a serious condition and can sneak up on those who aren’t experienced.
This assumes they were planning, vice reacting.
Possible, but based on what? Also given the anti-Trump elements within Intelligence. Was it given to sacrifice SDF to make Trump look bad?
Not enough to justify invading Syria IMHO.
Then we would be fighting several more conflicts before we even got to this!
Of course we don’t know who…[Read more]
This is certainly part of the propaganda from a variety of sources.
Erdogan doesnt strike me as an ask for permission type, though he is evil (IMHO),but certainly not stupid. Warning us of his planned actions was necessary to avoid a confrontation with us that he can’t win. He also knows we don’t want more wars to fight.
Erdogan also has…[Read more]
Wasn’t directed at you.
I “hope” they they’ve spent some time over the past few years cacheing party favors for a rainy day!
A plan “C.”
Wouldn’t count on it, if it’s not about talk of impeachment, it’s not on the table in the House.
That kind of thing is in part why we are pulling out.
Rampantraptor has quality information regarding the Kurdish point of view and above average knowledge of the regional affairs.
Just remember there is more going on than meets the eye. Without that information it is difficult to truly understand the complete picture.
Whether that picture is good or bad is just as much a point of view as anything…[Read more]
I hope it’s true, but the cynical side of me will have to wait until it actually happens.
As I’ve stated multiple times in the past and earlier in this Thread, shotguns are a niche weapon for combat. They lack the versatility of the M4.
Why then were they used?
Why do I continue to bring them up?
Much of my AO is extremely dense terrain, similar in some ways to parts of Vietnam; the last conflict we used shotguns in such a role.…[Read more]
As I pointed out earlier, this is our historical trend of poor choices. However I believe the BHO administration of elements within deliberately chose to support those militias knowing the consequences.
In my opinion no!
That’s why I speculate our current choices are about addressing this.
As you state we will know more soon.
Another aspect to this is the disconnect between doing what is in our national interest and doing the “right” thing.
Anyone familiar with the various minorities affected by this situation and it’s historical perspective has to least sympathize with their situation.
Imagine how difficult it is for those U.S. Military personnel to follow the…[Read more]
A fair agument, particularly for those without emotional ties to the Kurds such as our troops who have fought along side the Kurds.
I would add that we are only one of two elections; with poor results, away from possible physical conflict right here at home.
