Fallout Re: Off Topic

This is the area that worries me the most, we don't use the term as such anymore, however it is appropriate to use in the case of India and Pakistan. They are not afraid of the concept MAD. The video below covers the topic in the second half of the first video, though the first half is worth the view as well.

This second video is definitely one of the best border closing ceremonies in the world.

India has just tested a ballistic missile recently that can hit anywhere in China. Like with Pakistan, there have been border clashes with the Chinese as well to include a "mini war" I believe it was in 1964 or 65.

A little food for thought, the border closing ceremony certainly showed some bluster, pageantry and if you paid attention a handshake.

I take that as a good sign but, I've always pretty much have been a "glass half full" guy mostly.

Some of you just don't know how many times and within a whole new meaning of the term "in the nick of time" we've come to someone with the finger on the bottom. This is about one of those events...

A Soviet submarine story, think the movie "The Bedford Incident" except it didn't happen.

Look up "Able Archer 1983" you might find it interesting as well.

Thank goodness there are still people like them in the world.

I find nothing funny about these weapons, every SSN or SSBN I was assigned to had the capability of carrying them. We knew if we survived there would be nothing to come home to, and we never relished the thought of dealing with an "On the Beach" movie scenario.

It's a "dark topic" I really just don't enjoy. However, it's important enough to be discussed.

So on that "cheery" note my least favorite day of the year is here and it's an hour later then it would've been prior to 0200EST. Good Night!!
