Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

And the Middle East, and relations with Russia, and a few other asshat regimes here and there.
It is high time world civilization stops letting individual asshats hide behind the 'shield' of Westphalia, in order to do as they wish to satiated personal desires at the expense of others.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

I was disappointed, and even expected the opposite, that we (or the Japanese) did not shoot down the last LFT "Gift". It appears that based on public statements from our senior leaders, and some commentary from Japan about ramping things up, in addition to LFT's and his UN Meat Puppet comm...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Tom, To be fair, the general public no longer (if it even really did in the first place) gives a shit that Trump fired Comey. Well, to be clear, technically it was Comey's boss who fired him, not Trump himself. Granted, he probably told him to. Even Steve Bannon thinks firing Comey was the biggest m...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Wait! What?
Look, somebody better clarify if VooDoo is real or not. When I saw it in that James Bond documentary, it sure looked real enough to me damnit!
You guys are muddying the waters here.

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

There are great accounts collected from German Infantry at the Bulge discussing the effects of the "New" US artillery. I paraphrase one (been a while since I looked at this reporting), "I have been through enough artillery fire to know that I don't know what you did, but I know you di...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

The Starfish test is a good example of misunderstanding carried forward. For example, the comment about instruments being maxed. This occurred because they did not know to monitor for the effects. Another point is the HPL grid, and claimed associated impacts. Key word, claimed. This is still debated...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Altitude impacts line of sight for E1 effects, and yes inverse square has some play. Without atmosphere, E2 and E3 effects become minimal. One of the other factors for altitude and latitude is the earth's magnetic field. Higher latitude means weaker field, and more E1 effects. The reason the peak fi...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

Paperburn, thanks for posting the graphic for E1 impacts. All should note the narrow area of high effect, which IS NOT centered below the weapon. This is a function of how the effect is generated, and how the yield / altitude / casing type / burst latitude / weapon type all interrelate. Some help, s...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

As I said, they don't really know what they are talking about.

Think atmospheric layers... and their effect on RF transmissions...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

EMP is very altitude and atmospherics dependent.
Popping a weapon in orbit is going to have essentially no effect if any on the ground.
