Heroes don’t run to China. Intel operatives being sensitive to the wholesale espionage campaign China is executing on the U.S. don’t turn around and say China isn’t really an enemy. Heck, real heroes take their lumps (several are in jail right now who are serving time for things they believe were totally right).

“Obstacles to a Syrian Regime Victory in Aleppo is republished with permission of Stratfor.”
In the wake of their seizure of Qusair in western Syria, Syrian loyalist forces are bent on capitalizing on their newfound momentum by wresting more of the loyalist core from the rebels and advancing on rebel-held territory.

The Art of Manliness has a good 3-part series on the topic of sheep, sheepdogs and wolves. A quote from part one:

Barrett offers an intro course to long range shooting. Next class begins July 26th.

This is one person’s experience during a terrible situation. From The Bang Switch:
Yes, some guns were confiscated in New Orleans, LA (NOLA) following hurricane Katrina, but it was nowhere near as widespread as some would have you believe. They were isolated incidents and the majority of those were done by out of town LEO and MIL.
What you are about to read are my personal experiences and recollection of events as I saw them. While not all-inclusive, I think they lend a fiar account of what really happened on the ground.
“Any doubt that I might have had in my opinions about concealed carry when I first came into office changed quickly as I became an elected official and became very familiar with the types of crimes we’re dealing with,” Morrissey said. “The focus should not be against law-abiding citizens.”
