This is interesting… for those that double female military capability:
I find this to be an interesting follow up to the previous topic. What wasn’t reported in the news clip here, was that the mission was a success. I wonder how many missions were conducted with an all female crew.
I have a little suggestion for the Administration. Bring home every Soldier, Sailor, Airmen, and Marine from Iraq and Afghanistan… and of course Libya. Private Contractors can finish everything up just fine over there… but bring home all our Armed Forces.
Then we invade Mexico. Completely, totally, and utterly. We go street by street, house by house… and we kill everyone having anything to do with the Drug Cartels, Terrorist Groups, or any Gang affiliation such as MS-13 and the like. We finish this. Two more American Citizens were killed waiting to cross the border back into the US.
If we could accomplish that, then we wouldn’t have to worry about border security save for ports of entry check points much like Canada. But while we are there… how about a little regime change? Process out all corruption in the bureaucracy there. Okay, well, maybe not that. We’d have to sort out our own first before we could point fingers on that count.
We’ve read the reports that our Woman Warriors in The Stan are being encouraged to wear scarves over their heads. We’ve read views supporting and opposing this from all directions. My take on this is a little different. The way I see it, Male or Female, they are American Warriors. We should treat all of them the same. No matter where they are. And other nations should Fear and Respect them all the same as well. Continue reading Women in War→
The US Army is going to hold a new Carbine Competition. This weapon will be replacing the M-4 Carbine. I suspect adoption will occur in 2013 or ’14… but the question is which gun is going to take it. All the major players are gearing up for this. Colt, HK, FNH, Remington, Beretta even has one, and Robinson will throw their XCR up again…. there will undoubtedly be others as well.
The most interesting one, in my opinion is the Remington ACR. I’d love to see that one adopted in 6.8SPC. The new Beretta looks awesome, but I think it looks a bit too delicate, and I but there is an accuracy issue with it. The XCR doesn’t interest me much… the SCAR didn’t make a whole lot of friends who were actually using it in combat and got its self de-funded. The Colt is just another AR type… and the future M4A1 is essentially just an M4 with a heavier barrel and ambi controls. If SHOT Show was any indication as to where the DOD Brass was… it was all around Remington. I think they are going to take it. I don’t see anyone else really stepping up and taking this one home.
