Well done, Kenya

23 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Looks like the Westgate incident is coming to a close today. I spent some time at CJTF-HOA and I am immensely proud of the Kenyans perceptiveness, independence, commitment, and fierce attitude toward combatting terrorism. Especially refreshing to hear Pres Kenyatta’s remarks on fighting global Islamism during the incident, in which his nephew was murdered, compared […]

Medieval fakes and pretenders

22 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Here’s a nifty list of people who pretended to be important folk in medieval times. Some succeeded, one may not have been a pretender at all, and one complete bastard dimed out his cat and it was hanged for his crimes.

Canada just isn’t ready

22 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

With a Navy where sailors are paid to stay ashore because there’s not enough ships for everyone to get sea time, and a mall’s amusement park has more and newer subs; with helos that are twice as old as their crews, and aircraft in general either stationed overseas for NATO or poorly positioned at home; […]

Syrian gassing… Iraq, part 2

21 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Having personally run into some of the chemical nastiness in Iraq, BGen al-Zadat’s interview sounds very familiar to anyone who spent time in Iraq about this time ten years ago. Unfortunately, so does the dispersal of the weapons to the evildoers next door.

A fine mess.

15 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

Unfortunately, those who don’t live by the sword are usually the ones who get cut anyways. This BBC article provides a decent overview but note the important detail – he was imprisoned but released. You simply can’t do that with terrorists, of any stripe. EVENING UPDATE:Sitrep from GMA indicates MNLF fleeing in civilian dress. Other […]

And now for something completely froggy.

13 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

On the lighter side of news this week was this nifty photo in this article about a frog rather surprised to find itself near a rocket launch. It’s a bit sad the rocket scientists giving the interviews apparently know little about optics – the young frog is quite near the camera, on its way to […]

Find me, find me not.

13 September, 2013 | The Red Team Red Queen

So here’s an interesting result from a survey about smartphone geolocation… People turn it off for social media, but leave it on for navigation. So they’re concerned about tracking socially, but disregard tracking data collection generally in favour of convenience. Hmmm. Put this together with last month’s uproar about in-store tracking of shoppers (and those […]
