Seems North Korea is at it again.
And I will reiterate the last paragraph;
When an unstable communist dictator openly threatens to nuke you, what is the proper response. I’m especially interested in the opinion of left-wingers who reflexively dismiss any sort of aggressive response as only making the situation worse. Fine. What would you do? Pay them a king’s ransom? Ignore them and pray they’re not serious? Go to the Chinese (you might want to bring some money, since we owe them a little) and ask them to get the kid under control?
Being moderate, I try to steer away from total destruction. And I’d like to see us (the US) get out of other countries’ business, but this time it is a direct threat on us. We invaded the middle east because of an indirect threat, what will we do to counter this direct threat?
I am not sure why this page did not post when it was supposed to…
It is a holiday that is being forgotten.
I would have forgotten about it this year except Reality101 was able to remind me before we took off for the weekend.
Until 1949, We had Army Day, Navy Day and Air Force Day. (Since the Air Force was so young it is surprising that they had their own day yet)
The days were combined into one holiday, except that the Marines did not make that adoption, though they do support Armed Forces Day, they still feel the need to have their own day since they are special.
Take some time today to appreciate that we have our men and women putting their lives in harm’s way for our protection.
While it may not be mentioned, keep the Coast Guard in your thoughts as well. They too serve for us and keep us from harms way and often pluck us from the jaws of death.
According to the Air Force News, on March 26th Lt General Janet Wolfenbarger was promoted to General. This is the four star general I am speaking of, the very FIRST female four star general in the Air Force.
I am very happy for her, her family, friends and the Air Force itself.
She has been serving for 32 years. This is not her only first.
She was part of the first class from the Air Force Academy that had women in its ranks.
Females only make up 9.1 percent of the officers in the Air Force and there are only 28 generals of any number of stars.
General Wolfenbarger, thank you for your service and your outstanding accomplishments.
