Victor: Signal Intelligence would make it easy to stop these kinds of attacks before they happen: cell phones and internet communication are easy to intercept.
Spandrell: Punch the Stalinist. Right. See, that’s why we can’t have nice things. Enjoy your strip malls then.
Contemplationist: Weren’t the Americans held back into a ‘limited theater’ which is why MacArthur resigned?
Toddy Cat: Can’t argue with that, Zippy. It’s typical of the “New Urbanists” — even when I agree with them about certain things, their elitist condescension drives me nuts. Soft-Core Stalinism at its worst.
Zippy: I’m sorry, but this guy seems like an insufferable jerk. Basically, “every city should look like the cities I like.” I just want to punch his arrogant face after listening to this.
Adar: In the aftermath of the failed Spring Offensive  Chinese units began to surrender in large numbers. Platoon, company and battalion surrenders as a group were not rare. The communists then called for truce talks and the administration of Truman too readily agreed.
Lucklucky: Yeah. Blinded by technology and science. Supposes that having scientific approach to war will have a scientific result. Jomini: War in its ensemble is NOT a science, but an art. Strategy, particularly, may indeed be regulated by fixed laws resembling those of the positive sciences, but this is not true of war viewed as a whole. Among other things, combats may be mentioned as often being quite independent of scientific combinations, and they may become essentially dramatic, personal qualities...
Bill: The best feature of this Leatherman, the feature that is not present in any other multitool, is the ability to decide for yourself what tools are in your multitool. You could customize your Leatherman for when you rode your bicycle, for when you were out in your boat, or for home vs. work. Now, that’s a hell of a good idea. I wonder how many bracelets segments they will sell.
Bob Sykes: You still need trains, trucks and planes to supply troops. NATO could not intervene in Kosovo until the US supplied the transport. NATO would not be able to engage Russian troops unless Russia managed to get fairly deep into NATO territory.
Alien: So, it appears that Nathan Bedford Forrest’s statement, “Firstest with the mostest” was correct.
