27MAR09, MIAC retracts and is under investigation, Russia gears up for an Arctic Force....

Kansas City Star reports that MIAC is being reviewed right now and how they file reports, like the one that classified anyone supporting third party candidates and the Pro-Life movement as domestic terrorists, will likely change. In other words, instead of immediate distribution, they will have to be reviewed by a distinct chain of command prior to release. Sounds like that would have been smart from the outset... But MIAC lacked the common sense and decided to jump on the band wagon touted by the College Professor bandwagon that the only real terrorists are Conservative, Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Third Party Americans....

Russia has an ever increasing interest in the Arctic region. Not only have they laid claims to resources well outside Russia's territorial waters, but they also intend to beef up and stand up an Arctic military force. Canada is reasonably concerned enough to start beefing up its forces in the North as well... So far, it doesn't seem that our President or DoD is paying attention... But then, they just keep deploying the only Arctic specialist units in the country to Iraq and Afghanistan (the desert)... Go figure. So that leaves the Alaska National Guard and the Alaska State Defense Force. We got some work to do!


This map just illustrates the incredibly short distances between Russia, Alaska, and Canada....
