Comments24/06/2017 #8 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#5 It's true @David B. Grinberg, we can't go to war with them. They would also invade S. Korea- it would be a blood bath. I fear that the populous is so brain washed in N. Korea that they won't over throw this dictatorship which has been in power since the 70's? Praying, yes... I pray for all people who become victims of human rights tragedies, including the citizens of N. Korea. It's a quagmire, no doubt.24/06/2017 #7 Brian McKenzieRead the recipe, it is ancient.
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@brian-mckenzie/kyrzbekistan-part-824/06/2017 #6 Brian McKenzieIt is the same production company that did the video for Ukraine, El Salvadore, Brazil and Yerovan Pure pandering scripted bullshit. Staged, manufactured, fake and virtue signaling.
We have been running these ops since the 90s under the names Open Society, Color Revolutions or Nation building.
I was deployed 9 times in their name - we built the rhetoric long before the troops came in.
Dont be led by the fake tears of a crying girl. Its bullshit, it always has been. For at least 30 years.
P.S. Black Lives Matter has the same pay sources and puppet masters.24/06/2017 #5 David B. GrinbergLisa, thank you for sharing this a powerful and moving message from such a brave young woman about the perpetual string of atrocities and injustices which continue to plague the people of North Korea by a totalitarian regime run by an evil incarnate. The reckless disregard of the regime for the basic human and civil rights of the people is indeed alarming. Unfortunately, the USA's strategic military options are not good.
If we attack the hermit nation by land, air and sea, their million man army will initially overwhelm the 20,000+ US troops protecting South Korea along the DMZ. The N. Korean military would send missiles into Soul which is very close to the border and is densely packed with millions of S. Korean citizens. Yes, the USA would ultimately prevail through sheer military might. But the toll of lives lost would be devastating. Thus, there appear to be no good options other than an internal coup to oust the ruthless regime and dispose of the despot. Let's hope and pray for the best.24/06/2017 #4 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#3 First they'd be driven to the Tumen River. But when it came time to leave, Black was afraid they'd be too conspicuous in a car and insisted that they instead walk through the mountains to the crossing point, a seven-hour ordeal that permanently damaged the nerves in his toes.
The video Brian- speculation on his behalf. He backed nothing up with fact. So, her story changed, she was a victim of horrible abuse. She was young and still is.
I don't care, we all know that N. Korea is guilty of 100 of thousands of Human rights abuses, not to mention murder.
Otto Warmbier, 22, who was arrested in North Korea while visiting as a tourist, had been described by doctors caring for him last week as having extensive brain damage that left him in a state of "unresponsive wakefulness."

Comments15/06/2017 #2 Nic FesterJim, I've never weighed in on American politics before. Unfortunately I only have CNN to watch here in South Africa. I've come to notice that CNN and it's reporters absolutely loath Trump. It actually reaches ridiculous proportions. I was one of those who enjoyed the charisma of Obama, but months leading up to the elections I began to see the cracks in the paint work. Perhaps because I don't live in the States it took me more time to reach the conclusion that all this man was, was a well skilled speaker. The political landscape had changed and Hillary didn't pick up on that. She played old school politics and look where she is now. The American people bought into a man who wasn't trying to look presidential, but rather a person who had the courage and convictions to take on the establishment on a number of key areas. I believe Trump is the best thing that has happened to America in decades. I don't live in America and yet the sentiments of this person resonates with me 100%. God bless America!15/06/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergJim, I've heard some people say that President Obama's lasting legacy is Donald Trump. Now, that's an interesting theory to ponder.

Comments01/06/2017 #10 Jerry FletcherAaron,
It reminds me of a quote, "they also serve who only stand and wait." Too often the service of the loved ones is overlooked as is that of those that were not members of the military. In my time it was not a choice. I would have avoided it if I could but that was not to be. I wound up in Korea only because the Fourth Infantry Division had a full compliment of forward observers about 15 minutes before I reported. Two guys in my OCS class got there before I did. They didn't come home. Too many of my friends died in that nasty little war but those I stayed in touch with saved some lives and made it possible for the country to be positive about Americans.28/05/2017 #8 Jared 🐝 Wiese ➡ I sell YOU.

Truly a day that reminded us of freedom, gratitude and selfless service.

You should be looking for civilian work with that clearance well before your ETS date. Once you cross that line - you can nearly forget that you ever had one - because the companies that will re-certify a clearance are few and far between.

Comments09/01/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 I want to take in this picture as individual human beings, who collectively put their lives on the line as a part of their professional code. We talk about war as politics but war is also business. We will salute them out and salute them in - and we don't want them to die or be injured for life - that is our humanity speaking, but put aside the emotion because the body language in this picture tells a many different stories, which is basically theory of mind. There much I learn from simply looking at this picture, for it prompts me to recognize how many may not be coming back https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_casualties_in_the_War_in_Afghanistan and then there is this http://www.bbc.com/news/world-south-asia-11371138 which says "Countries with troops still in Afghanistan include the US, Georgia, Germany, Turkey, Romania, Italy, the UK and Australia." Which means what? I like to think globally, at a time when nations are beginning to think nationally.09/01/2017 #4 Pamela 🐝 Williams#2 Exactly Manjit. Working on a military installation during the Gulf Ware and watching these boys (and no matter how many weapons they carried I could only see young, barely shaving, faces) depart for a war zone. I knew them by name, I had met their families at the holidays, the many girlfriends/boyfriends that passed through their lives, the ones they married and who later had children. They weren't the uniforms with weapons, they were the sons and daughters of parents who loved them, who feared for them.
I know what's waiting when they finally land in the US, family with happy tears but full of fears because we will soon have an erratic war monger in the white house. Any that can get out, will get out, before...08/01/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI want to take a perspective of the 17 visible rows in the center of this shot, which provides a view of 85 lives.
The core profession of these 85 people is as a soldier. Our affinity with them depends on what our own affinity is.
This picture becomes important from this perspective because the affinity of each soldier is his. One can only wonder the specialized role they might be playing or whether it is in direct action.
Whatever their assignment is their faces are not regimented in this picture, they are not an anecdote that sums up our beliefs, but individual lives, yet they cannot go on social networks to discuss that which could get their brothers-in-arm killed. Yet there is use of networks that connect them to their loved one's.
Finally, it is hard for me to spot which of these soldiers are females they know the military forces deploy female soldiers. In this regard I see the human being in those seats before I see their profession.
- 12/12/2016Broadly speaking, the global helicopter market is currently facing a two - pronged assault. The military helicopter segment has been impacted significantly by continued defense budgetary pressures across most traditional markets, and a recent slide in global crude oil prices has impacted the demand for new civil helicopters as well as the level of activity for existing fleets engaged in the offshore oil & gas exploration sector. This situation has impacted industry OEMs significantly, many of which had been working towards strengthening the civil helicopter segment to partially offset the impact of budgetary cuts on the military segment. However, the medium - to long - term view of the market is promising given the presence of strong fundamentals and persistent, sustainable growth drivers.
The market for military helicopters in particular is set to cross a technological threshold in the form of next - generation compound helicopters and tilt rotorcraft. Emergence of these technologies, expected to be set into motion and completed within the next decade, are likely to result in a significant expansion of the operational spectrum, force capabilities and performance. Aircraft arising from these new programmes may well see their conventional roles redefined, and thereby enhance the overall effectiveness of modern military operations. There are a number of strong and stable growth drivers for military helicopters globally, despite the continued challenges of funding and approval.

Comments19/11/2016 #5 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsBrandon, Absolutely. The whole thing wreaked of insincere business-as-usual with the help of marketing and a lawyer. I hope Mr. Walker felt okay with the apology but this letter 'sucks rotten eggs'. Having sat in as minutes taker in corporate meetings I can probably hear the conversation;
It was just a meal, for christ's sake, what's the big deal, okay, how are we going to handle this? So-and-so, write a letter by so-and-so time and we'll meet again to review. Damn that manager for not handling this better; didn't we teach them how to confront bad customers? Do we need to hold another round of training sessions on how to properly handle disgruntled guests. Now, on to other subjects; what were the losses for the veteran give-away? How can we decrease the free meals, while still capitalizing on the 'community good-will' campaign?
No where are they referred to as human-beings, they are 'guests', in other words, walking stiffs with wallets.19/11/2016 #4 Harvey LloydHas it really gotten so complicated that when we make a mistake we can't just apologize? The letter looked like one written for the state of the union address. The irony truly is that even though the letter stated the values, clearly these values were not present in this situation. Restating them didn't make it better but rather reinforced the leadership's inability to perform at the customer level.
Maybe the leadership needs to apply to undercover boss?19/11/2016 #3 Brian McKenzie"Veteran" Status may not mean what you think it means. I did 15 years in the Reserves, all of my 9 deployments were 179 days, because at 180 days they have to issue benefits and a DD-214, anything below that was considered "ActiveDuty for Training" - neither the military nor an extremely large Retail conglomerate out of Arkansas consider me a 'Vet'. The one DD-214 that I could have "eaned" was from time in a country that we were never officially deployed to and never declared as one of our Forward Operations in the ever global expanding Shit Show of Whack-a-mole 'Anti-Terrorism' ventures.18/11/2016 #1 Susan 🐝 RooksI agree with what you wrote here, @Brandon Marshall! What a damn shame on all fronts! Thanks for bringing this to our attention, and I hope that all other restaurants and service venues check their values and actions to be sure they're living up to what they say they believe.
