Generally the amount of hawkishness varies in inverse proportion to the time spent at the pointy end of things.

Consider Uparmoured and Thresher who've never been closer to the pointy end than a comic book but seem obscenely eager to see various and sundry wars break out from the safety of Mom's basement.

The biggest warmonger is Tango.
He is bound and determined to involve Uncle Sam in every single conflict in Shithole countries. God forbid that we “abandon” where we have failed.
Didn’t he learn his lesson in the Falklands? Argie Imperialism failed. Let the Yanks take a shot.

More and more I find myself admiring Bismarck’s “The next war will be over some damn fool thing in the Balkans, not worth the life of one Pomeranian grenadier.”

Or Lesion 4.

Shit, my stepfather flew an entire tour of — 20? 30? — bombing missions in B-17s in WWII. Then he transferred to jets and flew in Korea. He ended his military career in the Air National Guard flying transports on the weekends to Vietnam and intercepting Russian Bears as they came across the pole. He even got into a booze-up with Paddy Boyington, at one point.

And not once, in 45 years of knowing the man, did I hear him spout patriotic bullshit. In fact, about the only thing he ever said about his time as a bomber pilot was this: “There is no doubt in my mind that, had we lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal”.

You rock, USAFPilot, you fearless hero of democracy.

(Another thing: you never seem to hear American combat vets of that generation belittle the British, Russians, or even the French. I wonder why?)


Pappy...or Greg to his friends.

"You are assuming that he’s serious."

In any other environment, the assumption would be that he is taking the piss; however, on TNP...

So not 'Paddy' then?

Or was that Pappy's brother?


Nope. That was a brain fart. :) Getting old.

And yet another non-political post from TNP. Apparently, MacArthur was right and the U.S. should’ve nuked China during the Korean War, saving the world today.

Yep. And here is, once again banging the drum for war with China. Maybe he feels it’s the only way Argentina will ever have a chance of conquering the Falklands....?

Of course, according to the TNP intelligentsia, the Argentineans are just waiting to leap, any day now:

Not sure the Typhoon Sqdrn based in the Falklands (even though only 4) has much to worry about tbh.

That one is bringing the usual collection of crazies out. The herd view seems to be that any nation that might become a rival to the USA should be nuked before it has the opportunity to do so.
