A disturbing peek into the next war Comments

When we think of war we think about tanks, and bombs, and guns, and all the destruction and havoc they wreak. Death and flames come to mind as well as singular acts of bravery. However, the next war may look much different - how different? So different you might not think it was a war at all. Continue Reading

    The "Good Idea Guy's" have been working on making warfare more cost effective, turning the worlds leaders from kittens to tigers. Our country has too many senior commanders sitting far from the battlefield micro-managing the close fight at battalion level. Warfare has not changed since Rome, today until an American Rifleman reports the area cleared and secured you don't own the ground. America currently uses remote killing as tool, for reducing our losses; the end result is our enemies have a stronger resolve in seeing our defeat. Life is not a cheap commodity and the draft should be re-enstated, war is the most direct means of diplomacy, men are to fill that role.
    Christ never asked a soldier too quit his profession, Deut. 20 is God's ROE; Christian men should become familiar with this text. We have become fat, sloppy, fearfull, and hide behind woman. I say "fear not Jesus is on the battlefield" and thank him daily for showing such grace on the soldiers under me and myself; he allowed us all to be tested by fire and come out steel. I have been so blessed as to not lose a single soldier or vehicle. War is not pretty and smells like a ripe Porta-Pottie covered in stale sweat, and "blessed is he who would lay his life down for his neighbor"

    I don't know if the author actually came up with the headline. But... "disturbing???" whoever wrote that CLEARLY hasn't ever been in actual combat.

    Why is it that the first application of nascent technology is always in the field of warfare? I tell you that necessity is not the mother of invention, for we have no business incessantly trying to murder one another to merit the development of high-tech cyber weapons.

    Jesus tells us to love our enemies, not constantly plan their annihilation.
