The Empire’s Dog Feces: Puff p.r. on hardware as irritating as private sector advertising

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Decline and Fall at 10:21 am by George Smith

YouTube gee-whiz, complete with bad but wishful computer animation, for man groupies who get erections over technical applications for making slipping it to others far poorer more tactically efficient. Consider for a moment the wonderland on display here, completely isolated and out of touch with the rest of the country. (“Nearly 15% of the U.S. […]


The Empire’s Dog Feces: Drone virus story craps out

Posted in Cyberterrorism at 7:59 am by George Smith

Computer viruses/malware on US military networks are not remarkable. Ever since I wrote a book on computer viruses in 1994, so it has been. Some of them rise to newsworthiness. Most don’t. Because Wired pushed the news of a virus on a computer network administering Predator drone missions out of Creech AFB in Nevada, a […]

Posted in Decline and Fall, Extremism at 12:46 pm by George Smith

Actual Audio: Jon Huntsman Likes Science from scottbateman on Vimeo. At the end of 2010 I made my list of the greatest threats to US national security for the coming year. They were all internal and the list is here. The GOP was last but not least on it: The Republican Party is a threat […]

The Empire’s Dog Feces: The Pentagon budget-cut crybaby story

Posted in Decline and Fall at 10:38 am by George Smith

DD will believe serious budgets to the Pentagon after they arrive. But for the last two days we’ve had a number of stories in which cuts to defense are already being bemoaned by “think tanks” and “defense analysts” who have never been our friends. The last bit, taken from a Daily Beast thing syndicated to […]


The Empire’s Dog Feces: One of the ex-dogs speaks

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Decline and Fall, War On Terror at 8:15 am by George Smith

From Aspen, another posh nesting spot for all the nation’s “good boys,” an ex-dog regrets. Bomb the paupers strategy, no good, he sez. ‘Course, you knew all this if you read the news or even come here a lot. Hat tip to GoodShit.


The Empire’s Dog Feces: Electromagnetic pulse weapon mania

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 3:53 pm by George Smith

Late last week news spiked on alleged mainland Chinese interest in electromagnetic pulse bombs.

The Empire’s Dog Feces: “We got new e-warfare!” the vendors screech

Posted in Crazy Weapons, Decline and Fall at 12:49 pm by George Smith

A classic on the Empire’s Dog Feces beat today, courtesy of one of the many cheerleaders for arms-manufacturing disguised as journalists, W. J. Hennigan. Hennigan’s e-mail must now be jammed with junket offers from the domestic arms industry. And that’s because he regularly acts as a stenographer for Raytheon project developers. Today it’s e-warfare, specifically […]


The Empire’s Dog Feces: Friday morning edition

Posted in Bombing Moe, Decline and Fall at 6:49 am by George Smith

From the assholes at TAME magazine (no link): [The] Administration defines hostilities – an interpretation concocted over the objections of two top Pentagon lawyers – as a condition that exists only when U.S. troops are in a position to be fired upon … With the libertarian-leaning GOP freshmen and progressive doves up in arms over […]


The Empire’s Dog Feces: Arms manufacturing -is- entitlement spending

Posted in Permanent Fail, Why the World Doesn't Need US at 7:22 am by George Smith

A good deal of this blog has been devoted to the Economic Treason and Empire’s Dog Feces tags over the past twelve months.
