The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

War Should be Expensive

War is not a good thing. Sometimes war is a necessity to protect liberty and value, but it does not create value. It destroys life and value, AKA "blood and treasure".
It is expensive for the population that loses in both blood and treasure. For this reason, war should be expensive for the victor also. When it is expensive, reasonable parties will explore other options first. If it is not expensive enough, then it becomes too convenient an option. As we evolve toward unmanned combat systems, I fear for what it may bode.

Cheap, easily employed, unmanned systems will reduce the cost of war and shift the burden of casualties. It will not be the soldier that is the casualty of war. It will be the civilian. These tools will allow the decimation of the defenseless with little or no risk of cost to the attacker.

Economics 101. If something is handy and cheap, it will be common.

Be careful what you wish for.
