2020 White Minority and Gun Rights

In 2020, whites became a minority in the USA for anyone under 18 years old. This was only seven years after 2013 when newborn whites became a minority. In seven more years, our age range will become a minority. Why is this a problem specific to /k/? Because non-whites have formed a voting bloc against guns. Now that they have solidified their majority, it is becoming numerically impossible to outvote their anti-gun bloc. This issue is being censored in absolutely every gun community, even though it will directly lead to our guns being taken away, forever. We must address this issue or it's over for us. Tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars of funs. Hundreds of years of tradition. Heirlooms for our children, all gone forever. VA showed us that even if you have nothing against non-whites, even if you have non-white friends, even if you bring token pro-gun non-whites to rallies it doesn't matter because you cannot beat demographic destiny and voting blocs. If the ballot box is no longer a feasible solution, what do we do? We have to start talking about how to deal with it outside of the legal system. Even if we're not doing anything personally we should at least stop counter-signalling against people who are willing to, and stop silencing people who bring up the issue. You can't just separate politics from guns anymore because they are coming for us no matter what our politics are. Whether you're libertarian, national socialist, economic left, apolitical or anything else really it doesn't matter to the other races who just see "white" = "enemy". And nothing will convince them otherwise, ever. Even the small percent of non-whites who are on our side cannot control what their greater tribe does, assuming they even want to beyond giving us the most superficial lip service. This thread is to discuss strategies to secure our gun rights for this generation and the next. And the ones after that. We want our descendants to enjoy this hobby and this right just like we do today. I see a few primary ways to do this, including but not limited to: 1) Explicitly recognize the demographic issue as related to gun rights 2) Call out those who silence us for mentioning the demographic issue 3) Support those who take action beyond the ballot box, and call out those who counter-signal them 4) Develop verbal kill shots that reframe the discourse to our reality. We'll probably be hearing phrases similar to "race traitor" a lot more in the future 5) Discuss the most productive and humane ways to secure our gun rights now that the ballot box is no longer an option Understand that board rules and global rules apply. This thread should also serve as a containment thread for politics as related to demographics. /k/ is a board with the purpose of high quality discussion about firearms and militaria. Respect that because we are in this together. This isn't an official /k/ thread or anything. We can only control what we ourselves do so try to elevate the quality of this board while posting here regardless of how others may act.

France's police literal state

http://archive.ph/oAc4X [FR] Posted on 03/10/2019 >Four police officers killed, assailant shot dead in Paris prefecture >Four police officers were killed during a stabbing attack that took place this Thursday, October 3, around 1 p.m., at the Paris police headquarters. The assailant was killed. >The assailant would have converted to Islam a year and a half ago according to BFMTV and Le Figaro who site a police source and adds that his wife would also be Muslim according to the neighborhood. >According to BFMTV, at around 1 p.m., an administrative agent used a stabbing weapon against three Intelligence Directorate police officers in two different offices on the first floor. He then assaulted the stairs with a kitchen knife, two women, one assigned to the direction of security of proximity of the Parisian agglomeration and the other working in the direction of human resources. >The author then allegedly went down to the courtyard. After ordering him to drop his knife, a police and traffic police officer used his service weapon. >The assailant is said to be an administrative agent with more than twenty years of service. He was assigned to the Intelligence Directorate of the Paris Prefecture of Police according to Loïc Travers, representative of the Alliance union. The only known problem at the moment: he is said to have a deafness handicap. The track of an internal quarrel or a stroke of madness is privileged. >The attack occurred inside the prefecture, which is on the Ile de la Cité. Since this happened they started wondering if having Muslim were a good idea in the police if they were all going to have "internal quarrel or stroke of madness" http://archive.ph/LWcI6 [FR] Published on 10/21/19 >Radicalization in the police: 27 agents reported since the attack at the police headquarters >There are more and more reports of "radicalization" within the police. According to BFMTV, 27 officials from the Paris police headquarters have been reported since the attack on the premises on October 3. >Of the 27 reported police officers, three are the subject of requests for suspension by the Prefect of Police, and two have been disarmed. One of them was assigned to the Regional Directorate of the Judicial Police and the other worked as a peacekeeper in Villeneuve-la-Garenne (Hauts-de-Seine). The profiles of the police officers reported are rather similar: they are mainly men with the rank of peacekeeper or officers. >Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said on October 10 before the Senate Law Commission that there were "around 40 radicalization cases" before the attack, a stable maximum, he said. Following the attack at the Paris police headquarters, Emmanuel Macron had called for "a society of vigilance" asking the French to identify around them radicalized people and "laxities, deviations, these small gestures that signal a distance from the laws and values ​​of the Republic (…) little things that become big tragedies ”. >The prefect of police sent a memorandum on October 7, stating that "if signs of a possible radicalization of an officer are detected, it is up to him to report it immediately and directly to his superiors." In the gendarmerie, around twenty people have been reported for signs of radicalization since 2013. i wonder if there's more to this. http://archive.ph/c6VXk [FR] published on January 24, 2020 >106 police files reported for suspected radicalization being processed >Over a hundred files related to police officers reported for alleged radicalization are being evaluated. To date, there have been no detected cases of violent radicalization, but problems of compatibility with republican values and the police mission. >To date, there have been no national or presumed cases of police officers in the process of violent radicalization or of police officers who have been found to have praised Daesh. The assessments in progress therefore relate to suspicions of behavior in religious practice which would not be compatible with the exercise of the police profession or with republican values. >In Paris, 74 reports in less than four months, including 27 closed files >According to figures sent to France Inter, for the only police headquarters in Paris, there have been since the killings perpetrated by Mickaël Harpon on October 3, 74 reports in total. Out of these 74 files, several dozen are still being evaluated and 27 have been closed without giving rise to the slightest sanction. >It is the Central Evaluation Group (GEC) which is responsible each week for deciding on cases of suspected radicalization, depending on the progress of what are called "screenings": these are investigations carried out internally by the three major intelligence services of the Ministry of the Interior (DGSI, SCRT, DRPP) on the entourage of the agents reported and often, for example, on their attendance at a particular mosque. 27 files of officers from the Paris police headquarters have already been closed without action. Among the police officers reported to their hierarchy, some had very quickly been the subject of protective and preventive measures. In the days following the killing, a dozen agents were suspended and several were even disarmed. According to our information, to date, only three police officers are still suspended and two disarmed. >According to a source familiar with the matter, the number of reports of radicalization has "dropped significantly" in recent weeks. Welp, nothing to see there they are all moderate good boy that dindu nothing. http://archive.ph/oSV9j [FR] published on 25/01/2020 >Police officer reported for radicalization and "related" to one of the Bataclan killers >The new interministerial commission responsible for assessing suspected radicalization in the public service is seized of the case of an administrative agent of the Paris police headquarters who was the subject of reports, reveals France Inter on Saturday January 25. This could be canceled soon. >This official, stationed at the reception in a police station in the south of Seine-Saint-Denis (which depends on the Paris police headquarters), is "related to one of the killers of Bataclan", confides a close source of the file, via his wife who has "a link in his close family circle". >Reported after an "incident": He was reported by his superiors after an "incident", explains to France Inter a police commissioner stationed in the department at the time of the facts. "One day, continues the commissioner, while he was at the reception, he did not go back up as it should have been a report on a possible departure in Syria." Also according to the Commissioner, this official "refused to be in an office with women". >"We quickly learned that he frequented two very strict mosques in the department," he adds. >The grievor ended up on sick leave for depression, which the commissioner attributes to the fact that "everyone was aware of his family ties at the police station." >There is no evidence of violent radicalization >The file, the result of surveillance that has lasted for three years, has never been transmitted to the National Counterterrorism Prosecutor's Office, a sign that the man does not present any indication of violent radicalization or of links with a terrorist organization, according to several sources. . >A senior officer testified to his embarrassment with France Inter: "Apart from a report, we don't know what we can do. Can we really suspend a police officer because he is a Muslim? But can we take the slightest risk in a profession like ours? " #NotAllMuslim :^)

Delayed Blowback (and other less common operation mechanisms)

For the past century or so, John Browning has ruled the roost when it comes to autoloading firearms. Just about every major rifle in use today is gas-piston operated, and just about every pistol in production uses some variant of the tilting-barrel action first found on the Hi-Power. This is of course for good reason--Browning's designs these particular two at any rate are simple and reliable, with a proven track record that any potential new meme technology wouldn't have. But they're also boring. Seeing minor variations of the same century-old principle again and again gets tremendously dull. There have been deviations--most notably the various delayed-blowback mechanisms out there, and Beretta's use of dropping-block and rotating-barrel pistols. But even these designs aren't particularly new. The rotating-barrel is yet another Browning patent from the 19th century. Both the dropping-block and roller-delayed blowback, the most common delayed blowback, are Wehrmarcht designs from the late 30s/40s. But it's better than nothing, right? What are some other snowflake designs you like, /k/?

This radial-delayed blowback from CMMG interests me, along with delayed-blowback in general. Rifle cartridges are too high-pressure to get good reliability from delayed blowback, but the lower pressure of pistol cartridges makes it an excellent candidate for SMGs. The radial design appears even simpler and lighter than other delayed-blowback offerings, while also having a lugged bolt. Only concern I'd have is possible increased wear on the backs of those bolt lugs.

Britains Biggest Fuckup

So for those who don't know, the BBC, the British Broadcasting Communist organisation, has made a series highlighting the UK's newest carrier as it goes down on a shakedown run. It has the typical shit you'd expect from the BBC i.e. focusing on minorities and the carbon footprint of the Royal Navy I am not making that shit up. However there are some parts of the show I am frankly amazed were aired.

Here are some of the highlights so far:
>The F-35B quite literally cannot land with a payload on the ship unless said ship is sailing at full speed
>The F-35B cannot really land or take off if the sea is a little choppy
>The F-35B cannot really land or take off if there is small birds or tiny bits of dirt on the deck which is fair enough but read next point
>The HMS Queen Elizabeth engine exhaust rips itself to pieces cause the vents are made of thin sheets of badly welded stainless steel held together with duct tape, the end result is that it pumps bits of burnt fibreglass onto the flight deck and into the air.

This is just a few examples of the things they did show which just makes you wonder all the things that they were not allowed to show. Been watching this and nobody has asked why they didn't go with catapult assisted take off which was originally intended for the vessel.

So you probably ask why bring it up? Well first, /k/ actually as a think-tank has come up with some rather innovative and level headed designs some of which are allegedly being pushed forward /k/'s Light Tank proposals for example
The other is that I have a bunch of literature to share. Enjoy faggots.

On the Tank PDFs and ebooks
I should give a word of warning first, these have varying degrees of quality and full of contradictions in the very next page like:
>Bong Tanks lacked in armor to other nations
Followed with:
>The Churchill was one of the most heavily armored Tanks in the Allied arsenal easily laughing off even the heaviest German ordnance.

Or my personal favorite:
>German Tanks when they first appeared on the battlefield were more innovative than their counterparts
Followed with:
>When the German Panzers first showed up on the battlefield were already considerably outdated by even their interwar counterparts.

You have been warned.

Africa General: Mad Mike Hoare dead at age 100

Mad Mike Hoare, the Legend Has Died From the Soldier of Fortune Magazine COLONEL ‘MAD MIKE’ HOARE DIES An officer and a gentleman … with a bit of pirate thrown in Feburary 2nd, 2020 http://archive.is/jtSoh "The well known adventurer and soldier of fortune, Lt Col ‘Mad Mike’ Hoare, died in his sleep and with dignity aged 100 years at a care facility in Durban on 2 February 2020. A spokesman for the family and Mike Hoare’s biographer, Chris Hoare, said, “Mike Hoare lived by the philosophy that you get more out of life by living dangerously, so it is all the more remarkable that he lived more than 100 years. “Most people who met Mike described him as a legend, and as an officer and a gentleman; only a few realised there was a bit of pirate thrown in. Known as ‘Mad Mike’, he was short and dapper, impossibly charming, unaccountably enigmatic, always polite, strangely proper, absolutely sane, good natured, a brilliant leader and an absolute legend …” Mike Hoare was born in 1919 in India of Irish seafaring stock, and was educated in England. In the British army in WW2, he initially attended a small-arms school and officer training school. Later he saw action at Kohima, India, and in Burma. He was demobilised from the Armoured Corps as major. He qualified as a chartered accountant in London and emigrated to South Africa in 1948. He graduatedto the African bush, first by doing long-distance mountain hikes, then on motorbikes (Cape Town to Cairo, and Mombasa to Lobito) and later as a safari leader in the Kalahari Desert. In 1961 he commanded a unit of mercenary troops in Katanga. In 1964/5 he led 300 “Wild Geese” in the Congo to suppress a communist-inspired rebel uprising, becoming a household name in many parts of the world. In 1981 he led a failed coup attempt in the Seychelles, and served nearly three years in South African jails for air piracy. He lived in France for 20 years, making a study of the Cathar phenomenon, before returning to South Africa in 2009. In 2018 Chris Hoare published an authoritative biography of Mike’s life titled ‘Mad Mike’ Hoare: The Legend. Mike Hoare’s seven published books are available as audio books with Mike reading, from audible.com. More information at www.madmikehoare.com Col. Hoare leaves five children: Chris, Tim, Gerry, Mikey and Simon." He was a true /k/ommando, and all round big guy. F Also Africa General

10 More Years of BRRRT

The A-10 Warthog Is Sticking Around for At Least Another Decade
>After years of trying to retire the Warthog, the U.S. Air Force is spending big to keep more of the attack jets flying for another decade.

>Just weeks after the last of 173 A-10 Thunderbolt IIs received new wings, the Air Force on Wednesday awarded Boeing a $240 million contract to start installing new wings on 27 more aircraft — the first tranche of a project expected to re-wing a total of 112 aircraft for about $1 billion, according to a Pentagon contract announcement. The contract awarded on Wednesday runs through 2030.

>“Boeing will team with Korean Aerospace Industries and other key suppliers to deliver the first wing sets to Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah,” the company said.

>The contract signals the Air Force will no longer try to retire the plane, known for its rapidfire 30-millimeter cannon. The Warthog was introduced in the 1970s to support troops on the ground, and has seen heavy use in Iraq and Afghanistan since the U.S. invasions there. Yet over the past decade, the Air Force has several times called for retiring the plane and performing its close-air support mission with higher-flying planes like the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter or slower propeller-driven attack planes.

>Earlier this month, a congressionally mandated Mitre Corp. report obtained by Air Force Magazine said the Air Force should retire A-10s as new F-35 are delivered. And the Air Force is buying planes like the Embraer Super Tucano and Beechcraft T-6 for special operations and training foreign air forces.

>The Air Force started replacing the wings on 173 A-10s in 2011. That work finished earlier this month.

The HK33

The most popular and operator weapon that Heckler & Koch have made that you probably never heard of. Chances are you have seen it but often mistook it for the hefty chunk of homosexuality known as the G3 which by all accounts is one of the poorer battle rifles out there but does admittedly see some popularity in the goat fondling community. This is because for most purposes essentially they are the same rifle except one is dedicated to queering up FULL NATO rounds while the other is dedicated to Removing Communists in South-East Asia. The HK33 is indeed a 5.56 rifle and a surprisingly heavy one at that but unlike most 5.56 rifles it actually does work although that might be because it's not an AR-18 that has had it's intestines pulled out through it's anus and reshaped into a bullpup configuration. Likes of SAS, Navy Seals, even fucking Diensteinheit IX adopted this as their go to raifu with great enthuasim. This is a reliable and effective rifle that is going to continue long into service well after that piece of shit known as the G36 has disintegrated itself into dust. One of the things that make this an unsurprising weapon of choice is also it's magazine capacity which while most cucked 5.56 weapons are trapped using measly 30 round magazines the HK33 can use a man sized 40 round magazine so you can spend more time raining bullets down on your enemies. This is however not it's final party piece as there is in fact a shorten version of the HK33 known as the HK53 which for whatever reason the uninitiated seem to mistake for the MP5. In defence of most cases you can see why as they do indeed share a lot of similarities visually, aside from the painfully obvious oversized magazine that in no way shape or form anyone could mistake for 9mm. This is perhaps the most popular version of this weapon as it gives a lightweight, easy to conceal package with a high capacity magazine delivering relatively controllable true rifle grade firepower unlike those panzy ass PDWs. Yet again nobody knows this one exists despite it being a weapon that nobody has found a true replacement for yet. So there you have it. Proof that can Heckler & Koch can make good weapons instead of trying to market the shit out of their inferiority range and waste millions in procurement competitions bribing everyone hopefully long enough not to notice the garbage they are trying to sell doesn't work or not hopefully outclassed by the offerings from Beretta, FN or Bren.

Anything from a napkin sketch of a new trigger grouping you wish existed to a picture of something you made in a CAD program. >CleanDI Basically when you shoot the gun, you have a lot of pressure holding the bolt closed against the force that would normally make it fly open, and when gas enters at your forward tap it equalized pressure on the part of the lock piece that is in the tube. Remaining backwards force can then carry the bolt back, which if built correctly should conveniently vent the first port allowing the second ports pressure to push back more. The goal is to be easy to manufacture, I suppose. I think I recall seeing a gun displayed one time that used something similar to that but I cannot remember what it was.

Texas church gunman shot by armed civilian

Texas church shooting: Two fatally shot before gunman killed by churchgoer >A gunman opened fire in a church in Texas, fatally shooting two parishioners before being killed by an armed member of the congregation. The gunman stood up from a pew at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, a suburb of Fort Worth, pulled out a shotgun and begun firing. Police said they were still trying to determine the attacker's motives. White Settlement Police Chief JP Bevering praised "the heroic actions" of those who confronted the attacker. >The shooting took place at about 11:50 (17:50 GMT), during the morning service. The service was being live-streamed on social media. Video footage showed the gunman stand up from a pew and speak to a man nearby, who gestured at another parishioner. The gunman then fired at the man he gestured toward. The gunman fired again, at the man he had spoken to, before a member of the congregation acting as a security guard returned fire with a handgun, immediately felling the attacker. Several other parishioners also produced handguns and trained them on the attacker. It was not clear from the video footage whether any of the other armed parishioners fired shots. >The two churchgoers who were shot died later in hospital, police said. Members of the congregation in the nearly full church were seen on the livestream ducking down behind pews as screaming filled the room. >Jack Cummings, a minister at the church, told the New York Times that the gunman had been "acting suspiciously" and drew the attention of the church's security team. The security team is made up of volunteers from the church's membership who are licensed to carry firearms. "They saved a lot of lives today because this thing would have been a massacre otherwise," Mr Cummings said. Texas Governor Greg Abbott called the shooting "an evil act of violence". "Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life," he said in a statement. Witness Isabel Arreola told local broadcaster CBS DFW: "It was the most scariest thing. You feel like your life is flashing before you. I was so worried about my little one." >In September, a new law came into effect in Texas that allowed licensed handgun owners to carry weapons in places of worship. The state has seen a number of deadly shootings this year. In August, 22 people died and 24 were wounded at a Walmart store in El Paso. The same month a gunman killed seven and wounded 20 at Odessa-Midland. In 2017, 26 people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, during a Sunday service. Gunman top centre-right of picrelated, if anyone has a video of the livestream that'd be better but I doubt it since it was probably not watched by many. This story will undoubtedly be memory-holed soon enough as it doesn't fit the narrative and frankly I'm surprised the BBC even reported it at all. Sorry about the cancerous spacing, blame the BBC. I've tried to fix it.

War

How would you define a country having truly "experienced" war? I see the US tout its military prowess all the time, but unlike most other nations that has been in a war, they've never felt the harsher repercussions of it. Take the US for example.
Thanks to two massive oceans, Canada's tundra landscape and Latin America being overall too weak to contest anything, US soil has never been openly threatened by any outside enemies, and the american people have never really suffered from war.
Pearl Harbor? It was tiny a dot on the map, on an island sitting 3758 miles away from the mainland where the crushing majority of american life really resided. America was a very safe distance away from any fighting, mostly getting rich from selling armaments and equipment to the Soviets and the Allies.
Alaska/Russia border? It's mostly empty, icey landscape sitting 3622 miles away from the mainland as well.
Cuban Missile Crisis? A 13-day scare.
The Independence War? The bongs were so apathetic to it that they let them win.
Every other war the US has been in was either a proxy or a random venture into some backwater shithole that could never even dream of invading them back.

My question is, can we really say a country really been in war of attrition and suffered its consequences if their land was not once been invaded, its cities occupied, its infrastructure bombed and its civilians directly subjugated? Can you really say you have war experience when you've never seen the enemy step on your land and point a gun at you? The only actual war where american citizens were deeply affected was the Civil War. I wonder what will really happen when WWWIII comes down and it comes to their doorstep. Declaring war and sending people to die overseas is one thing; seeing enemy bombers flying over your suburbs is another.

Battle in question: https://archive.is/9HF4h I know I shouldn't watch trash, but I was watching Infographic's episode on private mercenaries and they went into constant detail about how the "Battle of Khasham was an overwhelming US victory" etc. I looked up more details about the battle, but I just can't see that being the case. Despite the US having the better K:D ratio, didn't they have to waste millions of dollars worth of logistical support/equipment on what amounted to killing a few dozen goat fuckers mixed with some (admittedly well-trained) mercenaries using outdated equipment? The tank/artillery loss was indeed pretty big, but Russian mercenary groups are increasingly moving away from heavy vehicles in favor of cheaper light vehicles that are basically trucks with guns mounted on them and unmanned drones (inspired by Kalashnikov creating suicide bomber drones), aren't they? Also consider that the US military was utilizing bombing runs as their primary firepower, yet from 2016-2018 the US Chairforce/Navy were experiencing an extreme shortage of explosives (they still are to a lesser extent, t. building 200+ Mk 48 torpedoes right now and the Navy wants them express delivered ASAP), so based on accounts of the battle, this almost undoubtedly meant that the US wasted SEVERAL missions' worth of explosives (missions that likely had to be canceled due to lack of explosives) on a single defensive battle that ultimately cost the Wagner Group very little probably. I know the US military is pants-on-head retarded, but why didn't they just retreat, regroup, and launch a counter-offensive? A base of 40 men is not very big and backup forces were stationed 20 miles away, so I can't imagine this was an extremely important base of operations? Admittedly it was just one battle, but isn't this one of those things that would absolutely bankrupt even the US if it happened on a monthly or god forbid weekly basis given the sheer amount of supplies wasted?

Bug-Out Bags/ post-RaHoWa prepping

My SUV has a convenient little Anne Frank cavity under the trunk, and I want to get a BOB/get-home bag stowed there along with my trunk gun. I know I want to keep a car battery charger in there, along with a first aid kit, a Baofeng HAM radio (with extra batteries), a headlamp (with extra batteries), water containers, a water filter, and a small food supply. I've got a good idea of what I want to do for the water containers and filter, but I wouldn't mind some tips on specifics for the other stuff.

>first aid kit
What should and should not be in a first-aid kit? Are there any premade first aid kits you would recommend for this sort of thing?

>food
Mountain House freeze-dried packs are out since they need to be cooked in boiling water to be prepared. Are MREs your best bet for long shelf-life, little to no preparation food, or are there better commercial items?

Fallout 3 Combat Shotgun

I want to bring this meme of a gun back into discussion, because I think it's possible to make it work in theory, though it required some extreme autism to come up with.

My idea is a reverse recoil operating system. A gas tube directs pressure to both the rear of the receiver as well as the magazine, which we'll get to later. The secondary gas tube (shown in red) actuates a piston (mauve) that causes the shell holding chamber and barrel to move forward, collect a shell from the elevator, a spring shoves the shell back, onto a fixed firing pin. The shell is ejected I don't know how this would be done, fuck you Todd and the operation repeats.

For the magazine system, I thought you could just have a weak piston (blue) push a shell, as well as causing the next round to be raised into the "chamber" on an elevator (purple) like in lever actions.

What do you guys think?

US may have lost edge to China: Australian report

"America no longer enjoys military primacy in the Indo-Pacific and its capacity to uphold a favourable balance of power is increasingly uncertain."
A series of articles regarding the decline of US dominance in the Asia Pacific region, starting with the Japan Times.
Chinese missile arsenal could embolden Beijing to seize Senkakus and force U.S. from region, report claims
>China’s growing military power in Asia could have “dire consequences” for the U.S.-led regional order, according to a new report that says its powerful missile arsenal could embolden Beijing in the “near-term” to seize the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands and other territories in the Ryukyu chain.
>The study, released Monday by the University of Sydney’s United States Studies Centre, said that a decade of “delayed and unpredictable funding” for the U.S. defense budget has seen Washington lose its primacy in the western Pacific, giving an edge to an increasingly tech-savvy Beijing.
>China, the report noted, has thoroughly studied the American way of war, particularly in the Middle East, and in response has deployed “a formidable array of precision missiles and other counter-intervention systems” to undercut the U.S. military’s regional dominance.
>China’s “growing arsenal of accurate long-range missiles poses a major threat to almost all American, allied and partner bases, airstrips, ports and military installations in the Western Pacific,” it said.
>If an armed conflict were to break out between Washington and Beijing, these ballistic missiles would likely cripple U.S. and allied forces across the Western Pacific region “within hours,” it added.
>China has systematically increased, upgraded and extended the range of its inventory of missiles and launchers in what the U.S. government has characterized as “the most active and diverse ballistic missile development program in the world.”
>Although exact numbers are not known, the Pentagon estimates that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Rocket Force now fields up to 1,500 short-range ballistic missiles, 450 medium-range ballistic missiles and 160 intermediate-range ballistic missiles, in addition to hundreds of long-range ground-launched cruise missiles.
>Beijing also appears to have been practicing for pre-emptive missile strikes on the forward bases that underpin U.S. military power in the western Pacific, using detailed apparent mock-ups in the Gobi Desert of important American military facilities in Japan such as the naval base in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, and air bases in Kadena, Okinawa Prefecture and Misawa, Aomori Prefecture.
>But any quick use of limited force with these weapons, the report said, would be premised on achieving a fait accompli victory — particularly around Taiwan, the Japanese archipelago or maritime Southeast Asia — before America can respond, “sowing doubt about Washington’s security guarantees in the process.”
>The United States’ alliance system and its international commitments — once deemed as an unassailable bedrock of American military and economic dominance — have repeatedly been called into question by U.S. President Donald Trump, though nowhere more visibly than in the Asia-Pacific region [1/3]

Teeline - AI-Resist

Teeline is a system of shorthand. Shorthand is a way of writing things down quickly. It's obsolete, because people can just record audio on their phones. However, Teeline has some unique traits that make it useful in this present moment.

You see, Teeline can be used to bypass censorship. You can place Teeline in an image, and the ai can't detect it. Moreover, there are other ways of hiding Teeline, which are unique to it.

The greatest advantage to Teeline is that it's the only system of encoding which bypasses ai censorship which is EASY-TO-LEARN. It was designed for this purpose, and, I must say, the developer of Teeline was a mad genius.

Essentially, how does one write Teeline? You learn how to draw the Teeline versions of letters, and you connect them up, much like cursive. But it is in the variability of Teeline that a lot of its potential comes. That's because one need not create "fast" Teeline. Maybe even "slow" Teeline might be a good idea, for our purpose (dodging censorship).

First, this is a book by Ann Dix. It covers Teeline well enough. I could write a better one, but cba at the moment.

USAF awards contract for "full ARSE compatibility

Goddamnit burgers.

>The US Air Force (USAF) has declared it is awarding a contract to Raytheon thanks to its pressing need for "full ARSE compatibility", including Windows 10 support, with equipment designed for maintaining fighter jet missiles. Raytheon Missile Systems will be the proud beneficiaries of the USAF's latest Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile Remote Support Equipment (ARSE) contract.

>A modern air-to-air missile is a reasonably advanced piece of computing hardware and software. Every so often it needs booting and testing to make sure all is well – and that's where ARSE enters the picture.

>"The contractor shall integrate the necessary software for full ARSE functionality on Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) ARSE systems, ensure the GFE ARSEs are compliant with Government IA, IT, and security regulations for systems used in classified locations and conduct checkout and validation of GFE ARSE systems for delivery to the government," states the text of the contract notice.

Whose leaders tried to break us down and make all repent
But we're all Rhodesians and we'll fight through thick and thin
We'll keep this land a free land from the enemy coming in
We'll keep 'em north of the Zambezi

War

How would you define a country having truly "experienced" war? I see the US tout its military prowess all the time, but unlike most other nations that has been in a war, they've never felt the harsher repercussions of it. Take the US for example.
Thanks to two massive oceans, Canada's tundra landscape and Latin America being overall too weak to contest anything, US soil has never been openly threatened by any outside enemies, and the american people have never really suffered from war.
Pearl Harbor? It was tiny a dot on the map, on an island sitting 3758 miles away from the mainland where the crushing majority of american life really resided. America was a very safe distance away from any fighting, mostly getting rich from selling armaments and equipment to the Soviets and the Allies.
Alaska/Russia border? It's mostly empty, icey landscape sitting 3622 miles away from the mainland as well.
Cuban Missile Crisis? A 13-day scare.
The Independence War? The bongs were so apathetic to it that they let them win.
Every other war the US has been in was either a proxy or a random venture into some backwater shithole that could never even dream of invading them back.

My question is, can we really say a country really been in war of attrition and suffered its consequences if their land was not once been invaded, its cities occupied, its infrastructure bombed and its civilians directly subjugated? Can you really say you have war experience when you've never seen the enemy step on your land and point a gun at you? The only actual war where american citizens were deeply affected was the Civil War. I wonder what will really happen when WWWIII comes down and it comes to their doorstep. Declaring war and sending people to die overseas is one thing; seeing enemy bombers flying over your suburbs is another.

Chinese civil war thread

While the topic of a second American CW tends to come up on /k/ every now and then a possible new Chink warlord period is seldomly discussed in detail even though it would rival a burger collapse in economic and geostrategic/political significance thanks to the wonders of globohomo.

Given how much of Western semiconductor and general consumer goods manufacture is situated in Chinkland an outbreak of world war is certain to nuke all Western economies and societies save for perhaps Russia as all those IC fabs in Shenzen will suddenly no longer be able to manufacture anything for Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Walmart and the other 6 billion contractees from all over the world removing 600 trillion shekels in investments and stocks overnight on top of removing maritime trade leading to material shortages on both sides.
Albeit Chinks may appear to be an exporter they are far from autarkic with China needing considerable amounts of food and oil imports to support its massive population+industry with things that would no longer be there inna war with the west and quickly lead to widespread famine if Chink history is any indication.

Could the Communist Party retain its hold over China particularly in Urban centres which have experienced considerable amounts of soy addiction and general emasculation via bugnet+gutter oil consumption over the last few decades and in the very likely event of local warlord cliques forming which regions/communist party factions would be proper candidates for such a thing?
Would neighbouring powers try and grab summa dat clay or would they drown in Chinkfugees?
Would the PRC or any warlords try and nuke their neighbours particularly Taiwan or stick to nuking themselves and would anyone even care if they do so?

After 18 Years of Sand Castles, US Files Plan to Leave Sandbox

Afghanistan war: US-Taliban deal would see 5,400 troops withdraw
>The United States would withdraw 5,400 troops from Afghanistan within 20 weeks as part of a deal "in principle" with Taliban militants, Washington's top negotiator has said.

>Zalmay Khalilzad revealed details of the long-awaited deal for the first time in a TV interview after briefing Afghan leaders on the agreement. But he said final approval still rested with US President Donald Trump.

>A huge blast rocked Kabul as the interview aired. The Taliban said it was behind the attack, which killed at least five civilians and wounded dozens more. It said foreign forces were the target. The bomb targeted a residential compound housing foreigners and the Taliban said gunmen were also involved. The attack highlights fears that US negotiations with the Taliban won't end the daily violence in Afghanistan and its terrible toll on civilians.

>The militants now control more territory than at any time since the 2001 US invasion and have so far refused to talk to the Afghan government, whom they deride as American puppets.

>The deal outlined by Mr Khalilzad in an interview with Tolo News is the product of nine rounds of peace talks that have been held in the Gulf state of Qatar. In exchange for the US troop withdrawal, the Taliban would ensure that Afghanistan would never again be used as a base for militant groups seeking to attack the US and its allies. "We have agreed that if the conditions proceed according to the agreement, we will leave within 135 days five bases in which we are present now," Mr Khalilzad said.

>The US currently has about 14,000 troops in the country.

>A Taliban spokesman confirmed in a text message to the BBC that the details of the troop withdrawal as outlined by Mr Khalilzad were correct. A pullout of the remaining forces would depend on conditions, including the start of peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban as well as a ceasefire, reports the BBC's Lyse Doucet from Kabul.

>Afghan President Ashraf Ghani will study the deal before giving any opinion, his spokesman Sediq Seddiqqi said earlier on Monday. He said the government still needed proof the Taliban were committed to peace. Many in Afghanistan fear that a US-Taliban deal could see hard-won rights and freedoms eroded. The militants enforced strict religious laws and treated women brutally under their rule from 1996 to 2001.

Mugabe Dead

Zimbabwe ex-president Robert Mugabe dies aged 95
>Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's first post-independence leader, has died aged 95. He died after battling ill health, his family confirmed to the BBC. Mr Mugabe had been in hospital in Singapore since April.

>He was ousted in a military coup in November 2017, ending three decades in power. He won Zimbabwe's first election after independence, becoming prime minister in 1980. He abolished the office in 1987, becoming president instead.

>Mugabe's early years were praised for broadening access to health and education for the black majority. But his controversial land reform programme sparked an economic collapse and his latter years were marked by rights abuses and corruption.

>His successor, Zimbabwean president Emmerson Mnangagwa, expressed his "utmost sadness", calling Mr Mugabe "Zimbabwe's founding father" and "an icon of liberation".

>Mr Mugabe was born on 21 February 1924, in what was then Rhodesia. He was imprisoned for more than a decade without trial after criticising the government of Rhodesia in 1964. In 1973, while still in prison, he was chosen as president of the Zimbabwe African National Union (Zanu), of which he was a founding member.

SA/DA versus striker fired

Something that's been bugging me for a while is the debate between striker fired pistols versus SA/DA designs for use in carry. One of the main arguments I've seen on behalf of striker fired is the consistency of trigger pull- but most SA/DA pistols being made nowadays don't have decockers, so firing the gun is generally going to be single action aside from a malfunction.
If you're concealed carrying without a decocker, it seems odd to keep your weapon in DA with a round in the chamber versus SA with the safety on.
Is the argument that there's some increased training requirement for using SA/DA invalid? More importantly, if things like weapons familiarization are seen as "excessive", should you really be concealed carrying?

Strange and Curious Firearms: Fuck your fingers edition

I'll start with the
HINO-KOMURO M1908 PISTOL

You probably have heard of the Type 94 Nambu pistol, infamously known as the"Suicide Special" with the exposed sear (it's a feature t.Nambu), but there is a far more sinister and curious Japanese pistol that is rarely talked about.
The Hino M1908 pistol was a blow-forward operated, semi-automatic pistol chambered in 8mm Nambu, .32 ACP, and .25 ACP. The 8mm chambering was later dropped as the cartridge proved too powerful for the design. All known sources state that between 8 to 15 rounds could be held. Now, a blow-forward operated pistol is rare for sure but don't make me explain the specifics of it, since I'm no-funs except for airshit. My basic understanding of the operation is that it functions like a complex open bolt self-loading slam fire weapon.
The blow-forward operation allowed for the gun to be loaded just by flicking it forwards, thus it is one of the few examples of a firearm that is capable of being operated by a single hand.

The gun itself is highly simple and uses few parts, as shown in the diagram. It is one of the few truly symmetrical firearms out there, as there are no mechanisms on either side of the gun. The safety comes in the form of a grip safety which resembles the grip safety on the Nambu Type 14 pistol, but by all accounts this gun was reliably unsafe.
Here are some reasons why...
>The Hino is an open-bolt, fixed firing-pin, blow forward gun, thus cocking the pistol traditionally (racking that slide) requires you to pull on the barrel. This potentially exposes your body parts over the muzzle, especially in high stress conditions; should you catch a piece of clothing or anything on the sear, the barrel could potentially retract, chamber a round, and spring can fire the round by pushing the round on to the fixed firing pin. One oopsie, and you've got an unintended discharge that could very well end with a lost finger or a new hole in your palm.
>The manual states the above as a glaring issue, and advises users to flick the gun forwards and load it using the inertia of the long barrel
>To safely unload a chambered round, one must retain the barrel while he decocks the trigger (i.e. pressing it down), slightly pull back on the barrel (which if you do this too hard, you've unintentionally discharged à la slamfire style) and pull forward the barrel. This is issue was seemingly rectified in some later American models which seemingly allowed for a 2-position firing pin.
>The safety feature of this gun is a grip safety only. That is usually not optimal, it's seen in some guns like the H&K P7; but in the Hino M1908's case, the gun doesn't have a trigger guard. Should one holster the firearm loaded in a manner so that the grip safety and trigger was depressed, it would unintentionally discharge.
>Since the disconnector and sear were incorporated into the trigger as a single piece, not depressing the trigger enough or not being snappy with the trigger would [classical mechanics in Japanese] and cause the Hino to fire in full-auto
>The inventor of the gun Hino Kumazo suffered two wounds directly from this firearm. First he accidentally shot his left thumb off after trying to load the thing, and the second time, he was accidentally shot in the back by his gunsmith, exiting through his abdomen. He survived these wounds, and survived the firebombing of Tokyo which burnt down a lot of important files about Kumazo's invention's and catalogs of his firearm, but he died of malnutrition, a broke man, in 1946.
