Speaking of War...

The contributors over at Information Dissemenation are some of the best on the planet when it comes to current thoughts and trends in Naval warfare, so consider the following with care:

Preparing for War
by Galrahn, Information Dissementation
In chess, to achieve checkmate you must first position your pieces properly.

For years I've dismissed the topic of war with Iran. I just never thought it would happen, or at least knew we would see it coming so have repeatedly dismissed claims that war is near. We'll, this is the kind of movement I've been waiting to see happen before taking this too seriously as a legitimate possibility, rather than an implied one...

...In other words, the Chief of Naval Operations announced to the Senate Armed Services Committee this morning specific details about preparations for war with Iran, and in response the Senators drooled on themselves in silent capitulation. The only thing missing from that scene from this mornings Twilight Zone moment in the Senate was the CNO knocking on the microphone asking "is this thing on" for dramatic effect...

Our modern Spartan image appears to require constant warfare, now presuming to approach 3 fronts.

I suppose the belief is that the only thing that still "works" in America is the Dept of Defense (sic). If this is so, then with only one tool--a hammer--in the toolbox, every problem looks like a nail.

A friend of mine continually asks the question: How are our rulers going to PAY for all this war?
