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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Disgrace Worthy of a Resignation

A Disgrace Worthy of a Resignation

It is unconscionable. It is rude, insensitivity, callus and unacceptable. With the news that family members of fallen soldiers killed in Afghanistan are not only being denied death benefits, but are being denied transportation to Dover AFB for the arrival of the caskets containing the remains of their loved ones, the Obama Administration has crossed […]

Rebuttal of liberals’ attack on AirSea Battle

In 2009, the Secretary of Defense directed the Navy and the Air Force to develop an AirSea Battle concept to deal with increasingly aggressive Chinese behavior and military posture in the Western Pacific, as well as Beijing’s expansive territorial claims that China has threatened to go to war over. The two services completed the work […]

A brief analysis of Syria's air defense systems

A brief analysis of Syria’s air defense systems

As the Obama administration and the Congress consider whether to use force against the Syrian regime Bashar al-Assad for allegedly using chemical weapons, CDN Defense Correspondent Zbigniew Mazurak briefly analyzes Syria’s air defense systems exclusively for CDN readers.   Syria’s weapons arsenal is predominantly of Soviet and Russian origin, and the same is true of […]

Honoring a hero…as war drums beat

One week ago on Monday, August 26, 2013, I had the incredible experience of being at the White House as a member of the media for the Medal of Honor presentation to United States Army Staff Sergeant Ty M. Carter by President Obama. Staff Sergeant Carter was awarded the Medal for his heroism in action […]

A New Defense Strategy for America

A New Defense Strategy for America

The American people have been treated to many “new” defense strategies, military force postures, nuclear strategies, and other policy proposals – mostly from the anti-military Left – over the last few decades. Most of these “new” policy proposals were aimed at cutting and gutting the US military while lulling the American people into a false […]
