Interesting

On Thursday, the Senate voted 68-23 to advance an amendment offered by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), a key Trump ally, that expressed the sense of the chamber that the U.S. “faces continuing threats from terrorist groups operating in Syria and Afghanistan” and that the “precipitous withdrawal of United States forces from either country could put at risk hard-won gains and United States national security.”

Vote record here.

Not really sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I don’t think Afghanistan or Syria (or terrorism emanating from those places) pose a direct threat to the US. But I don’t trust Trump to do any sort of draw down in any sort of informed and intelligent way. I also think we should probably be engaged in those places (though not necessarily militarily). But again, I don’t trust Trump.

re: #19 Chrysicat

Anything floating on the ocean and not a submarine has been a target for some time.

The US has spent almost a century building a great blue water Navy - a way of duplicating and then surpassing the British Navy - that has only been challenged once, in WWII. Since then the US Navy has fought grossly inferior enemies, or just been a pawn in the Cold War.

Put simply - if something floats it can sink.

Honestly, that’s always been the case. The US lost their fair share of carriers in WWII, which was the carrier’s greatest hour. I’m not too worried about any new weapons tech being developed because I know we’re throwing large chunks of budget at developing our own. The main thing I worry about is that the next Big War - whether it’s WWIII or something less apocalyptic - is still going to be a war of the biggest coalition, and right now, we’re losing that fight badly.

Remember the Russians and their skval torpedoes that can go 100mph? Or that the Iranians seem to have them? Or that the Chinese might have a variant?

This is more of the same.

They might have a weapon that could threaten a carrier. But then again, a concentrated attack against a carrier would succeed on sheer numbers alone. Defense has to be perfect - attackers just have to get lucky once.

Keep that in mind.

China’s reminding everyone that they’re not going to sit idly by, and they’re going to fill the vacuum that the US is leaving in its wake thanks to Trump.

Put simply - if something floats it can sink.

The US focused on carrier fleet tactics in WWII out of necessity after Pearl Harbor. We lost fleet carriers along the way in WWII - the majority of the carriers we lost were the jeep carriers/baby carriers and not the Essex class and none since, though we came close during the Forrestal accident in Vietnam.

We developed tactics to protect the carriers, including a screening/picket fleet of destroyers, escorts, subs, etc., to make sure that there was an umbrella of protection. We rely on technology to try and detect the enemies sooner/further from the fleet to keep the threat minimized, but it’s always been there.

We worry about diesel subs being undetectable and able to sneak into the cordon and getting off shots at the carriers. We worry about cruise missiles, stealthy cruise missiles, small ships, drones, and long range missiles, hypersonic missiles, and other weapons that could cause damage or disrupt fleet activities. Heck, we worry about nuclear attack (we tested the old USS Saratoga against a nuclear weapon during Operation Crossroads to see what it’d do to ships at sea).

As Joshua said - the only way to win is not to play. Don’t want to lose your carriers? Don’t get into wars.

The only difference between “cold” and “warm”, to a solar panel, is the total amount of solar energy delivered. I’d be curious about the difference in average solar energy delivered per minute, but I suspect the main difference (and thus adverse effect on quantity of solar energy delivered) is in the length of the day.

At the same time, Buzzfeed’s news division has been getting some pretty decent scoops lately. Trashy content gets the clicks, brings in ad revenue, so reporters can get paid. It’s how every newspaper and news magazine has survived for decades — publish silly stuff, sell ads, so the company can make money to pay staff to write serious stuff.

Actually, as is the case with most electronics, solar panels are more efficient when cold. On really hot days efficiency can drop quite a bit. Luckily those tend to be the days with a lot more available sun light.

Whether or not I was sold on her before, I am suddenly a fan.

Totally this. It drives me fucking nuts to hear bullshit about drug companies needing huge profits for ‘research’. Drug companies spend most of their money on marketing. They fund very little original research. (They do fund clinical trials to test drug safety for FDA requirements, but very little basic science.) Most original research is publicly funded. But the culture of wealth worship that is America somehow considers that ‘waste’ and rich people profiting off that ‘valuable contribution’.

Story here.

Hmm. CNN? So…fake news, right?

It’s not fake if it is a positive.

Fake as hell if it is a negative.
