What might the implications be for the United States if Mexico collapses? Before you answer, consider that a national border is nothing but a theoretical concept if it’s not controlled, and if one or both nations refuse to preserve a distinct national culture.

When you see the calamity coming …

… but you’re led by narcissistic cowards, what do you do? You find your Churchill or your Reagan. Fast.

Women in close combat units? This will not end well.

So it looks like outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has decided to gut our military readiness on his way out the door, by unilaterally allowing women to serve in units that engage in close combat.

Osama bin Laden: still dead

That doesn’t mean he can’t still be useful in an election, though. Nowadays, though, we have much better methods for extracting intel from uncooperative Islamists.

What if we cut all defense spending?

Obama Administration: “Aircraft carriers are so 1990.”

The hyper-skilled tradesmen who build nuclear aircraft carriers possess a level of expertise that requires steady use to maintain. Just as professional athletes must constantly train to maintain their abilities, shipbuilders must steadily build to keep their own proficiency at the required peak level. If you run Newport News Shipbuilding and your guys are forced […]

Will cuts in defense spending fix our debt?

Americans detained by their military on U.S. soil?

Let’s take a quick look at §1031, §1032, and §1033 of S.1867 (official text here). These are the three sections of the Senate’s version of the 2012 Defense Authorization Act that deal with military detention of terrorists.
