    Given all the baggage that he had pre 2015, I'd like to know why 45 thought it wouldn't come out sooner or later.

    If chickenhawk supremo Bolton gets fired over the latest mess in the sorry Syrian saga, then I guess some good did come out of this whole withdrawal farce.

    The KMT is fundamentally a Chinese nationalist party. A good deal of the DPP believes that the whole island should be completely de Sinicized, whatever that is.

    And Israel does multi year universal conscription. If that was introduced in Taiwan, support for instant reunification would become near unanimous.

    Another problem facing Taiwan is that it assumes that in order to wage war, China must send an invasion force across the Straits.

    With technology to extend artillery ranges (i.e....

    The problem with a voluntary military is that if you want the troops there to be good, that's going to be very expensive (not just pay, but also education and training. So each uniformed service...

    Honestly, given Shanahan and Trump's shared interests on 'cost cutting' program costs and that Space Force boondoggle, I'd be more worried about Shananhan turning out to be the 3rd reincarnation of...

    No one is going to put their necks out on the line for a country with the Democratic Socialist of America's defense budget and the Heritage Foundation's defense strategy, and are too lazy for...

    Honestly, Top 2 would matter a lot more if California still did partisan gerrymandering (all redistricting since 2010 is done by a non partisan commission), since that would stop anyone like whatever...

    Honestly, I don't think the PYG/PKK should be very representative of Kurds.

    The ruling KDP in the Kurdish Regional Government hates them (the Barzanis are afraid of the PKK color revolutioning...

    Won't work, targeting SPHs is a waste of time, since the SPH will be long gone by the time anyone gets a targeting fix on them for the cruise missiles.
