Slabinski said he wondered whether the Air Force was motivated as much by hopes of receiving its first Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War as by a desire to fully understand what transpired on the mountain.


I wonder that as well.
Their taking advantage of the political climate good on her.

The politics in the awards system makes me roll my eyes and mine and the rest of our experiences during the entire GWOT leaves me suspicious of every citation.

The following article is comes on the heel of an execution of 2 senior staff, an execution with the use of antiaircraft guns.

Kim Jong-un had his education vice premier executed by firing squad
Dictator was infuriated by Kim Yong Jin's poor posture during a meeting
He was interrogated and found to be an 'anti-revolutionary agitator'
Another aide with an 'overbearing attitude' was sent to work on a farm

Kim Jong-un has executed a senior North Korean official by firing squad because he did not sit properly during a meeting.

Education minister Kim Yong-Jin, 63, was shot dead after his 'bad sitting posture' in parliament incurred the wrath of the North Korean dictator.

The slouching vice premier was interrogated and found to be an 'anti-revolutionary agitator' before his execution in July, a South Korean official said.

'Vice premier for education Kim Yong-Jin was executed,' South Korea's unification ministry spokesman Jeong Joon-hee said.

'Kim Yong-Jin was denounced for his bad sitting posture when he was sitting below the rostrum,' he added, referring to North Korea's parliament.

Kim Jong-un was in the government meeting and was infuriated after Kim Yong-Jin sat in his chair 'with a bad attitude'.

Another South Korean official said the education official's poor posture was spotted at a meeting on June 29, when Kim Jong-un was named chairman of a new national defence department.


North Korea executes vice premier in latest purge.


'The trouble for Kim began after he was seen sitting with bad attitude during a meeting of the People's Supreme Assembly,' the official told South Korean newspaper JoongAng Daily.

'He was later accused of being anti-revolutionary following a probe and a firing squad execution was carried out in July,' he added.

Kim Yong-chol, another North Korean official, was sent an 'ideological re-education' farm for a month in June and July because of his 'overbearing attitude'.

Meanwhile Choe Hwi, vice director of North Korea's propaganda and agitation department, has been sent to a similar camp.

Lil Kim needs to be thrown over someones knees and spanked like the child he is and then caned for hours on end until he can't stand.

Then made to suck on a pacifier like an infant for the rest of his life since that's how he acts.

Loser....

I find this amusing, in a scary way.

All of our land warfare capabilities are essentially the same as the end of the Cold War, and we have deactivated or reduced a number of the more useful ones (like cluster munitions). Meanwhile, they've studied the shit out of us and have adapted their gear and doctrine specifically to counter us. We're overly focused on chasing bronze age guys around mud huts.

I'd say with a good deal of certainty that Russia/China are much more prepared to fight us today than we are prepared to fight them.
I'm afraid I have to agree. Our continuing reliance on tech and fixation on small wars may have left us way behind in our ability to duke it out in a bigass conventional war.

Considering how the Chinese are going into Africa economically, their land forces probably won't be far behind.

They are looking for a base (port) in the region to extend their growing navy program.

My understanding is that the Chinese are pursuing expansion into Africa for it's resources. Naturally, they'll need a Navy to support all that. It's hand in glove.

In a way I can't wait. The Chinese getting bogged down in local politics.

I'll be able to bring back 1960's slogans with a twist :

"Bashar al-Assad, Running Dog of the Chinese Imperialists!!" for example.

I think that has a nice ring to it.
