These Golden Delicious apples may well be some of the best I've ever had. From two very obscure small trees while visiting Casper.

Not a stretch saying this and it's little things like this that make things go round.

Pentagon Changes Army's Training Goals

I find this interesting. I just wonder who they think will engage them in "large-unit" engagements. Although I do not agree with with the majority of this country's budget used for the military I acknowledge we can and should be able to beat anyone out there in open engagements.  

Window-rattling shellfire on Fort Carson's training range will be heard more often in the future as the Army shifts its training goals back to large-unit operations with artillery, armor and helicopter support. "Our training is shifting away from counter-insurgency and back into more direct action," 

I occasionally can actually hear explosions from Fort Carson maybe 45 away as the crow flies. Then there is the Pinyon Canyon(and they want much more) training site not too far to the SE. There is a fair amount of military air traffic and vehicles on the interstate going to and from these two places. I do enjoy seeing big planes flying low btw.

This fellow in the article goes on to say - "We're going to be noisier in the future,". I say kiss my ass you smug bastard!

    1. Don't see those often and they're generally kicking ass and fairly high but very loud even at distance.

    1. The congress has ordered more tanks, against the Pentagons wishes. The Generals also are wondering where it is we will be in a land battle against thousands of tanks and cannon. The congress still wants to fight WWII.

    2. Didn't notice. You would not believe my mistakes and I can't see them until later most of the time.

      In respect to your comment we must keep the 1% happy I guess.

  3. They need their large unit operations because real generals don't command small units in itty-bitty battles.

  4. They're preparing for the invasion of North Korea. Or Iran. Neither of which would be the pushover that Iraq or Afghanistan was. Just sayin'. It's gonna happen (Iran in particular). Obama ain't gonna be Preznit forever, and once a neo-con gets back into office... well. The military is gonna be prepared, yo.

  5. I'm slipping as troop deaths have diminished recently. They want to shoot sooo badly and I forgot how much we hate these other country's and love to shoot. And they will. It's nice to not have our guys dieing everyday.
