The Coming National Defense Crack-Up

…while President Obama’s staff prefer to emphasize to the administration’s many successes in counterterrorism operations instead of the accumulation of serious issues faced by the Department of Defense, the armed services and America’s returning veterans.

Yes, there is a “Coming national defense crack-up” coming, but that doesn’t mean that our national defense doesn’t have a strategy in the Global War On Terror.

The strategy is two prong.

The first prong skewers the process of “Act” that keeps the Islamist who perpetrated 9/11 from Orienting themselves, from a position of advantage. This simply means we  “stir” the hive to keep a plan, like that which happened on 9/11, from happening.

The second prong is one that accumulates an “Orientation” like that created to take advantage of the conditions, which enabled the Crusades to end, an Orientation of accommodation.

These condition of accommodation required the nation-state of interest to become “Islamic” instead of Christian. The Crusades ended as Jerusalem became Islamic, and the God fearing Christians existed with the Muslims.

As the US is the greatest bearer of the power of Christianity, next to the Vatican, the second prong requires the US to turn-over nations, who are under the BushII “Crusade”, to Islam, which is happening.

So, if there needs to be a debate, I suggest we debate the thought that we are  “turning” of the US military power in the South Pacific.

There hasn’t really been a turning of the power of the USA towards the Pacific. The USA has formed two fronts–one that crosses Australia and the other that crosses Jerusalem.

Jerusalem marks the line, that America will not cross, in regards to Islam and the Middle East, as much as Australia marks the line that America will not cross in the South Pacific, and China.

To bring this war, fought by the nation of the Great Experiment to a conclusion, we need to keep this simple folks.

Winning

I think the verdict

is out that winning

is more important than any calculation that can be made.

Unfortunately, winning requires a calculation of any kind. So I guess this is one bridge too far.

Just for you interested, my posting for my busiest day was called The Human Condition.

 Not sure what the Human Condition was about, , probably something about Jesus of Nazareth, because I am speaking from a Christian nation, but just giving some context.

News from The Associated Press

The real issue is that servicemembers are not allowed to use the uniform to further a civilian cause, Kosik said.

I thought that was the purpose of the uniform.

I mean, the fact that these people are wearing a uniform means that the civilian cause has got to the place in time where civilians, who have the resources, need warriors to move the cause forward or the cause needs to be defended. The uniform signifies unity to the cause as well as a union of brothers, and in the case of the article, brothers and sisters.

So  mothers in uniform defending breast-feeding has little to do with people in military uniforms endorsing civilian causes, because they do that everyday.  The real issue is how can a warrior endorse a civilian cause and still maintain looking like a warrior in the process?

This is a situation in which the culture is literally “eating” the structure, which the uniform represents.

Location, Location, Location

I have been helping my wife through the process that she and her siblings are going through, i.e. selling her mother’s house and property.
Realitors will tell you that it is the location that is most important requirement when selling a house. This house is located high above and overlooking the City of The Dalles, Oregon, and the Columbia River. I like to say that it is literally a million dollar view, and she is only asking half of that. So for now, I am in the Observation mode.

To start with I am first identifying the area the land covers. With the use of Bing Maps and AutoCAD softeware, this is the area, first as taken from Bing Maps:

Later with the help of AutoCAD I inserted an overview of her property lines:

:

I am not a big fan of pirated software, so I hope I haven’t broken any copyright laws. Bing lets you print out a copy of the map, but to make it work in my AutoCAD program I had to scan it and convert to a Jpeg format. If I have broken some kind of laws, I hope they understand that I don’t charge for this and I am in the learning (still after all these years) mode, and not profit mode. I bought a registered copy of AutoCAD software, so that is not a problem. It is an old version, so what is a problem: going through newer versions of Microsoft’s Word, as a text editor, and WordPress itself.

While in many ways the second drawing is rather crude, the AutoCAD overlay showing the property lines has an accruacy of 15 decimal places, which means the Bing map is really quite good. While overlaying and scaling the drawing was mostly guess work, as a first time effort, I like the outcome so far.

It should be noted that what makes this location unique does not show up in this area drawing. North is towards the “top” of the page, and the difference in elevation between the north property line and the south is several hundred feet. Depending on how much more involved I become with this project, my next drawing task would be to improve this area drawing and show a 3d view. A 3d view you don’t need glasses to see, ha!

The location is also just down the hill from Columbia Gorge Community College and next to that the new National Guard center that is being built. There is also some history associated with the area, as there is a pioneer cemetery (or) that is interesting to walk through, and parked discretely next door.

Feedback on how this looks (and possible directions I need to follow in my task) in WordPress would be appreciated.
