“Are these the beginnings of profound changes in the Soviet state? Or are they token gestures, intended to raise false hopes in the West, or to strengthen the Soviet system without changing it? We welcome change and openness; for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace.” ~ Ronald Reagan – June 12, 1987

In spite of claims to the contrary, al Qaeda and its allies and friends are alive and well—and seeking the destroy America and all our values and traditions. We have the knowledge and means to counter a growing existential threat posed by them, but we must recognize the threat and deal with it. Included in our response should be building effective defenses and hardening the electric power grid. Soon!
High Frontier Chairman Henry F. Cooper had a guest column in Maine’s The Times Record today.

But . . . What about one North Korea may actually have been practicing?
F. Michael Maloof, a former senior Department of Defense security policy analyst, discusses a little known 2011 Army War College study that concludes the Defense Department will be hard-pressed to respond in any meaningful way to a catastrophic failure of the civilian electric grid infrastructure due to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event, whether natural or man-made.
March 11, 2013 – Yogi Berra opined, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it” . . . but, which way to go?
