    Well the question would be "superior to whom"? The Order of Battle Analyst who has spent his entire life studying Russian CDCM's? Or the average joe on the street? I would say my expertise is mostly in having a shallow knowledge in a moderate variety of such things, with an ability to go find out more at need.


    Well, reading about things and studying does not supersede actual real world experience.

    No american force has engaged a russian force since....ever...anyone who thinks they know the full capabilities of russia and russian technology (or america and american technology) is kidding themselves.

    What's that saying? "No plan of battle survives first contact with the enemy"..that isn't exact but something like that..I don't feel like looking it up..you get my point.

    EDIT: no disrespect intended....

    so I asked him;


    He then replied;



    The only thing left for me to say was


    Since you drug me in, I'll ask you the same thing I asked him;


    What was your GPA while you were at west point?

    How did you do on DS 310 "Military Tactics" and "DS 470 "Military Strategy"?

    Did you take the HI 355 "Warfare in the Age of Industrialization" course?

    What about the DS 455 " Comparative Military Systems" course? How did you do in that one?

    Naturally you aced HI358 "Strategy, Policy, and Generalship" I should take that for granted, right?
    Uh-huh. Wanking about a weapons system remains an extraordinary indicator of someone who doesn't know what they are talking about. There is a reason no one serious is writing about Syria and claiming that we are about to receive a punishing blow from their ASCM capability.

    I see.."wanking" ....."doesn't know what they are talking about"
    Does that apply to you as well?

    Definitely point 3

    I'm curious, is he a POS for revealing US wrong doing in Vietnam, or because he's a hypocrite for advocating wrong doing now in Syria?

    When it comes to the geopolitical question? Not at all. Not being a ramjet engineer is not the same as being unable to comprehend a general sense of whether something is concerning. Moreover almost never is a particular weapons system the salient or decisive issue in any conflict like this. It is a distraction.

    He would be less of a POS if he'd admitted his own wrong doing in Vietnam rather than point fingers at everybody else for some real, but mostly made up crap never witnessed by any that served with him. I know some of those people quite well. That he's advocating action in Syria just piles more on the already smoking, steaming pile that is Kerry.

    c'mon Shermie you have to agree we can lob some missiles n bombs and call it a success and go home?
    I do think it was really cute that the Slav boys were able to properly employ their obsolete modified
    Soviet long wave radar with the SA-3 Goa to catch that nighthawk sn-82-0806 with its door open n nail it.
    But his time its the Arabs and everyone knows they can't fight for shiite. I'm not afraid that all our vessels will be sunk?

    are you?
