Military Activity

I'm up in Fairbanks Ak. at Ft Wainwright and there seams to be a lot more training and activity than I normally see on Military installations. A guy I work with just arrived at Ft Hood in Alice Texas and he is seeing the same thing I am up here.

My guess is the US is going stir the hornets nest up really good before April of 08 come around so we have no choice but to stay in the sand box.

By the way, this post I'm at now is the 1st Attack Brigade. Not sure what that all entails.

When Paladin asked "in Alaska?" He was asking if someone would find guys in camos shirtless in Alaska... he wasn't asking if that's where Fairbanks was located.

As to the OP... Yes.. we are going to go stick a nice big stick into things again. There's too much money to be lost w/ peace.

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

Right you are! The last couple of weeks someone has been probing airport security...Mitchell was one....seems they have been doing dry runs, seeing how good security is at "secondary" airports. Maybe we good some intel and now we are going to stick the stick into the nest and see what happens. And your right...war is good business

der...that's why I highlighted and bolded the CLIMATE part in the definition....Alaska has pretty good summers there...most people don't realize that, they think it's cold up there 24/7

guess I have to dumb down my explanations now too

costal Alaska has almost the same climate as the upper midwest. WI and MN for the most part.

Here is the quest that I have, if we have the intel to tell us that Alqudia (sp?) is as strong or not stronger than at the time of Sept 11, 2001 why aren't we using this intel to kill their asses instead of just watching them?
