    Don't know how many have this link. Interesting reading for this old "Cold war warrior" on what the other side was thinking


    Thanks to the CIA

        Back Street Boys reunion.....

        Wow...

        And I thought Benny going to a Madonna concert was weird....

        Anyway, thanks for the links, Gunny.

        This makes up for you slacking with the dead chick pics for the last few months.

                        I took a look at some articles from the 1978 cache of documents. Everything had been originally written in the mid-sixties. TOP SECRET with limited and very exclusive distribution was for source protection. Yet the articles, while immensely valuable for a variety of historical and technical reasons, weren't necessarily relevant to threat conditions in 1978. The Soviet Army was a markedly more dangerous and modernized foe by 1978.

                        Still, this is an extraordinary collection of documents and I'm grateful for the opportunity to review them.

                          What is most interesting to me in these documents, and same can be seen in all declassified documents on both sides, is the fact that they are all written so a 4 grade school can understand them. Says a lot about intended recipients.

                            That's the proper military way of writing and speaking.The receiver has to understand what's being told regardless if he wants to get it or not,no matter how stressful the circumstances.
