The reasons are quite telling.
Adm. John Richardson point blank if US aircraft carriers could operate inside China or Russia's supposed anti-access area denial (A2/AD) zones.

Hillary Clinton sits at the center of a raging firestorm

Sadly, this isn’t a Coke commercial where a bunch of folks hold hands and sing kumbaya. We have enemies who are not seeking a virtuous state of mind, benevolence or justice. ~ Allen West As Written By Allen B. West: Does anyone remember the shoot down of the Malaysian Airlines jet over Ukraine? Yep, how […]
Russia has stated plans for a military build up. The reasons for this are convoluted. Follow me on this. Russia decided to go adventurism in the Crimea, and when the United States, NATO, and others responded in kind, Russia now felt threatened. This latest announcement seems to portend a move like in the old Cold […]
What happens if you’re that guy who really likes this girl but she keeps dismissing you? Does there come a time when you finally realize this specific girl will never want you? As Written By Allen B. West: And then comes a girl, maybe not so gorgeous but she’s attracted to you and sees you […]
Sequestration rhymes with castration. That is what seems to have happened to the Defense Department budget during the Obama administration. Red flags are up everywhere but National Defense is not getting the nod. The mind set in Washington seems to be that they are still cashing in on the Peace Dividend from the fall of the […]
One of the maxims in military principles is that nothing ever seems as it should be, and always consider the unseen actions of your adversary. As Written By Allen B. West: Such it is when dealing with the very savvy former KGB Colonel, Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president. Just yesterday, Putin made an announcement – a […]
The Russian Bear has been a symbol of military might handed down from the cold war. Is it all that mighty? The author of this article paints a different picture.

There are times when you realize there’s a special kind of stupid in the world. Over the last seven years we’ve certainly been exposed it. Then again, what we’ve witnessed isn’t always unintentional. As Written By Allen B. West: Just yesterday we shared the issue of the Obama administration asking begging Russia not to […]
If there’s one thing I despise it’s when our country is made to appear weak and embarrassed on a global stage. As Written By Allen B. West: I always enjoy hearing liberal progressives state that under President George W. Bush, America wasn’t liked. They say our reputation in the world was damaged, and that they, […]
WTH? What in the world is the Treaty on Open Skies? Have you ever heard of it? Do you remember that the United States and many nations, including Russia, signed this deal back in 1992 and it went into effect in 2002? Signature nations can request and arrange to overfly each other and do military surveillance. This treaty was […]
The United States Navy has an anti ship missile. But it has a short coming, literally. It has a range of 70 miles. What it needs is one with a range of 1000 miles. Where is this missile? It does not exist. Where is it coming from and when? What stop gap measure is available? Read more […]
I find it rather interesting how President Obama generates such intestinal fortitude and indignation when it comes to attacking his political enemies. His face contorts when his aim is directed at the GOP or constitutional conservative grassroots Americans. But when it comes to the real enemies of America, well, Obama is limp as a noodle. […]
This seems like a flash back to the Cold War that President Reagan won for us. Military units use to push the envelope of behavior, trying to get the other side to flinch. The issue is not for just the safety of the personnel involved. It was always the worry of the nation’s leaders that an incident […]
