Rebuttal of Friedman’s and Preble’s blatant lies about US nuclear weapons

On November 14th, the NY Slimes newspaper published a litany of blatant lies about the US nuclear arsenal,written by Cato’s Benjamin Friedman and Christopher Preble, two anti-defense hacks employed by CATO. In it, Friedman and Preble falsely claim that: The US nuclear arsenal is “bloated” and amounts to overkill; Nuclear weapons and the nuclear triad […]

Rebuttal of political admiral's false claims about Chinese submarines

Rebuttal of political admiral’s false claims about Chinese submarines

On Saturday, during the Reagan National Defense Forum at the Reagan Presidential Library, Admiral Jonathan Greenert, a political admiral whom President Obama appointed Chief of Naval Operations in 2011, dismissed China’s entire ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) fleet as not being credible. He furthermore said: “For a submarine-launched ballistic missile to be effective it has to […]

The “we don’t need so many warheads” lie

Among the many lies being repeated by the Left in defense of Obama’s plan to further deeply cut America’s nuclear deterrent is the blatant lie that America can safely afford to continue cutting its deterrent indefinitely and could maintain deterrence even with a significantly reduced arsenal. Obama made that blatant lie himself during his infamous […]

Thoughts on Veterans Day

Thoughts on Veterans Day

On this Veterans Day I find myself on the couch after a three-week work marathon catching my breath, and all over the news, Facebook, even next door, there are signs of thanks and appreciation for our fighting forces. Check that. People are just plain gushing over soldiers, to the point where one fellow I know […]

Rebuttal of the ridiculous Roll Call commentary

Several weeks ago, the Roll Coll magazine published a ridiculous commentary by an anti-nuclear activist who seeks America’s unilateral disarmament and has launched yet another attack on the US nuclear deterrent – and more specifically, on the Navy’s ballistic missile submarine replacement program. He wants the Navy to cut the planned order from 12 to […]

Why the modernization of the B61 nuclear bomb is absolutely necessary

A program to modernize the B61 nuclear bomb – the main nuclear munition of the bomber leg of the US nuclear triad – is underway. Predictably, the left – both Congressional Democrat and their friends in pro-unilateral-disarmament organizations (ACA, Ploughshares, the CLW, etc.) oppose this vital program (and all other US military modernization programs) and […]

Pentagon investigates potential location of Korean War military chaplain's remains

Pentagon investigates potential location of Korean War military chaplain’s remains

ATLANTA, Nov. 6, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — As the country gets ready to celebrate our veterans, a senior pentagon analyst responsible for locating the remains of Korean War troops missing in action said there is a “better than even chance” that the body of Medal of Honor recipient Father Emil Kapaun will be found buried […]

Rebuttal of Stratfor's false claims on China's ballistic missile subs

Rebuttal of Stratfor’s false claims on China’s ballistic missile subs

The open-sources-based Stratfor think-tank has recently published an article on China’s ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) that downplays the threat these submarines, and China in general, pose to the US. Because of this, and because it contains numerous factual errors, I’ve decided to pen this rebuttal. The article begins by repeating the US-China Economic and Security […]

The Few, The Proud, The Unisex

The Few, The Proud, The Unisex

When Ronald Reagan was president he described members of the U.S. Marine Corps in a memorable phrase that is featured on the Marines’ Heritage Museum website: “Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.” The generation of paper–pushers and PR–minded behind–kissers that inhabit the Pentagon and […]

Rebuttal of Collina’s, Preble’s, and Fay’s leftist attacks on the US nuke deterrent

It seems that, in recent weeks, treasonous attacks of the pacifist Left on the US nuclear deterrent have intensified. It is not, and will never be, possible for us defense conservatives to respond to all such attacks, so I’ll respond to only two: one by ACA’s Tom Collina, and the other by CATO’s Chris Preble […]

Rebuttal of Tom Collina's and Kingston Reif's call to cut nukes

Rebuttal of Tom Collina’s and Kingston Reif’s call to cut nukes

The US nuclear deterrent – cut by over 75% since the Cold War’s end – is now barely adequate, yet the leftist anti-nuclear-deterrence movement wants to cut it deeply even further and eventually scrap it altogether. They want that to happen unilaterally, without Russia or anyone else’s participation. Why? Because these people, such as the […]

Myth: “the Defense Lobby buys politicians”

For some years, some people have erroneously believed and claimed that defense budgets are determined by, and weapons programs initiated at the behest of, defense contractors, who supposedly buy Washington politicians’ votes. Anti-defense organizations like POGO have been spreading that propaganda for decades. Recently, pseudoconservative sites like LibertyNews and the DailyCaller have been spreading that […]

New enemy air defense systems mean ONLY stealthy aircraft are viable

New enemy air defense systems mean ONLY stealthy aircraft are viable

Russia has recently decided to sell the state-of-the-art S-300PMU2 air defense systems (commonly known as SAMs, though the term SAM applies only to the missiles themselves) to the Syrian government to prevent any foreign intervention against the Assad regime, and to sell the equally capable S-300VM system to Iran. Earlier, it agreed to sell even […]

Time to withdraw the US defense commitment to Europe

Time to withdraw the US defense commitment to Europe

As European countries continue to deeply cut their defense budgets, capabilities, and military force structure to fund their increasingly expensive and bloated welfare states, more and more of the defense burden is being borne exclusively by the US. Even formerly formidable secondary military partners like France and Britain are now gutting their militaries, and Britain […]

Mr. President, Enough With the Lies, the Fear, and the Spin

Mr. President, Enough With the Lies, the Fear, and the Spin

First, let me start off by saying, this is not a Democrat vs. Republican piece. This is a “administration gone stupid” piece. These budget games have been played for years. These fights over who knows best have been played for years. But Mafia-style thuggery, like this, should be left in Chicago, New York, Miami, or […]
