      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Thanks for the link, Sisu. I like the "missiles-R-us" moniker. How can the "talk-talk-talk" advocates respond now? North Korea is ACTING, how can we sit there and just TALK?

Oh really? There are OTHER countries moving short-range weapons around? What a f'ing shocker. Thank god the axis-of-evil chestbeating was able to clue us in on this. I don't think we ever would have found this out otherwise if we hadn't verbally threatened those guys. We're the ones talk-talk-talking by saying that crap at a state of the union address. Of course they are always a threat, but we had to resort to this 7th grade crap. Give me a break.

"Moving weapons around"??? No, Iain, it's called SELLING weapons to a nation that has known terrorist ties. It wasn't the announcement of an "Axis of Evil", but the identification of the relationship that prompted the action.

No shit greg and it was stopped, just as it would have been in any other administration, not just the one that cries war when it gets a hangnail.

We're projecting our stated interest in the region by preventing the intrusion of weapons into an area that may be used against soldiers, marines or airmen (American and our Allies) and you are saying you may have an issue with us doing that? Or that politically we are chestbeating? I just call it smart intelligence and correct military action. Get out from behind the PC dude.

For the final time I am saying yes, great, these missiles were neutralized. The "axis-of-evil" chestbeating had nothing to do with it. Bush might as well get on the podium and say France and Britain are a bunch of pussies too. Do you see where I'm going here?

Really? Why didn't the previous administration do shit about terrorism in that region when they had the intel? 'Cause they believe in the hand-wringing appeasing Chamberlain-esque style of diplomacy.

Greg I don't have the patience or energy to deal with your drum-thumping bullshit today and it's obviously pointless to say anything at this point, since you'll once again bring your warped chainlink fence view of the world into play again. I'm out of this one.

Greg, no one can reason with the PC Pacific NW Coasters. They want to get along with the whole world(and that would be great), even if it meant they would hide their women behind walking tents and face east 5 times a day to pacify anyone that threatened them. The last request by the al-Qaida was requesting the US to convert to Islam and something else that my poor old mind has forgotten. Anyway, the point being, I would bet there are people in the US that would relent and say lets give in and meet some of their requests just to be PC.

I agree Sisu. Why bother. My response was to sign a Title 10 contract yesterday to be federalized back into FT service. madgo_ron.gif

Yeah those previous administrations like the Regan admin. The Regan administration turned their tales and ran when all those marines got killed in Beruit. Regan sure sent a message to those terrorists, bomb us and we'll go run and hide. And what about buying off Iran with weapons in exchange for hostages. That sure sent a great message to terrorists.

 

You righty guys are funny.

Question: do you guys think the U.S. sells weapons to countries with possible ties to organizations involved in terrorism?

 

Second question: if we are contemplating a war in some part of the world, do we have a right to intercept weapons shipments in the region? Perhaps Yemen agreed not to purchase weapons from N. Korea, but what if they hadn't made any such agreement? Are we expecting to be at war with every nation in the area?

 

I'm not against seizing weapons that are being shipped illegally (if they were), but what are we actually doing about weapons proliferation if you look beyond this incident and review our history and our foreign policy?

Well, I still find myself in the middle, but love how the US intelligence is taking all the credit when really it was the Spanish Navy that discovered all this, with the US piggy-backing by saying, "Yeah, we were tracking them from N. Korea, but were going to stop them before Yemeni territory. Who knows where the SCUDS were going and for what purpose? Hopefully up Bush's ass!!!! I bet if we would just rid ourselves of him, then things would work out in other faccets. We need a gun-lovin' , recreationist, who likes to distribute wealth (to some extent). Think we can bring back Teddy R. from the grave? On a side note, here is a true article that you (guys) may enjoy
