On the Viability of a Leftist Revolution

On the Viability of a Leftist Revolution

I recently stumbled upon a copy of On Guerrilla Warfare (Mao Tse-tung), with an introduction from Brigadier General Samuel B. Griffith, USMC (Ret.).  With all this talk of resistance, revolt and revolution, I fail to see how we’re out of the woods with the current leftist revolution taking place right […]

Suppressive Fire for the Irregular War Fighter

Suppressive Fire for the Irregular War Fighter

Well-executed suppressive fire is, arguably, the critical task in an effective contact. The maneuver element cannot move to, or exit, their covered approach route until/unless enemy weapons can be destroyed, or effectively disabled. Effective suppressive fire is a prerequisite for assault or any other maneuver! The reality is conventional military […]

22 JAN: The First D-Day of 2013

22 JAN: The First D-Day of 2013

On 22 January 2013, Senator Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban bill will be introduced into the US Congress. This is truly a monumental time in the course of our future liberties and this nation.  I reckon that 2013 is going to hold for us many D-Days – events which will change […]

Sources and Reliability, Part II

Sources and Reliability, Part II

Reliability. I drop into a specific militia website from time to time.  I’m in no way affiliated with them – I’m not even in a militia – but I’m naturally curious and just want to see what they’re saying.  They have an ‘Intel’ forum where they share information.  A lot […]

More Thoughts on Gun Control

More Thoughts on Gun Control

I read a pretty interesting article over at Bob Owens.  He provides a lot of food for thought concerning what comes after a nationwide gun ban (or similar restrictive legislation), and although I don’t agree with everything he writes, his piece is worth a read. Owens oversimplifies a good deal […]

Sources and Reliability, Part I

Sources and Reliability, Part I

This is the first post in a two part series on Sources and Reliability.  Part II will be published next Friday. Watch an average spy movie and you’re likely to see sources and agents.  Hollywierd cooks up graphic scenes of sex, betrayal, torture, and last minute heroics.  It’s rarely that […]

Logistics of the Irregular Force Warfighter: Sidearms

Logistics of the Irregular Force Warfighter: Sidearms

On Sidearms. The reality is, as has been determined over and over ad nauseum by the militaries of the world, the pistol is largely irrelevant in military/paramilitary combat. That having been said, as the man pointed out, that doesn’t mean it isn’t important to the individual soldier who suddenly needs […]

The Future of Gun Control

The Future of Gun Control

I’d just like to share my thoughts on gun control: God help us.  I think they stand a strong chance to push through the previous Assault Weapons Bans and then some.  It’s not a bulletproof case (no pun intended) so get loud and active. “It [the bill] will ban the […]

Logistics of the Irregular Force Warfighter: AK vs AR

Logistics of the Irregular Force Warfighter: AK vs AR

Personal Thoughts on the AK. I don’t have a problem with the AK-variants for what they are: weapons that were designed (don’t buy into the Soviet mythology of a lone armor corps tanker tinkering in the mechanic shop to design a rifle from scratch) and mass-produced by a totalitarian regime […]

Army of Crime

Army of Crime

Army of Crime is a French war drama set in 1940s occupied France (and it’s on Netflix).  This is another must-see move – much like The Wind that Shakes the Barley (also on Netflix) – for a foundational understanding of partisan resistance against an occupation. Army of Crime is full […]
