Do you know what day it is?
It’s Draw Mohammed Day!
More video commentary from China in Focus. Floods, plague, locusts, earthquakes… sounds as if somebody is really ticked off at Communist China. I try and refer these youtube videos to you here on the blog because they tell the story that the mainstream media fears to.
The Chinese are going to need to buy more food from the USA. (hahaha) The whole coming war thing doesn’t necessarily bode well for them, but of course, the communist party cadre (more equal than others) will dine well even if the common people starve to death. As it was in the days of Mao when something on the order of 50 million starved during the cultural revolution.
After a Blizzard in North Dakota (1966)

SMS Königsberg in the Rufiji River, German East Africa (now Tanzania).

Tribute to the A-5 Vigilante
Still one of my all time favorite aircraft.
Fast and capable, the A-5 had been designed as a naval nuclear weapons strike aircraft and was more often relegated to a recon role.
I realize that there are fancier plastic battle rifles that followed, but in truth, it was a war-winner in so many ways, and remains unique in so many ways.
