    Military Monday with USNI Press Author Norman Polmar – HUNTERS AND KILLERS

    in History

    Since the first submarine attacks in 1776, naval warfare professionals have been trying to find effective counters to the threat posed by submersible warships. In the two and a half-centuries since those first underwater assaults, submarines have become arguably the most powerful and dangerous warships in history. In particular, the submarine campaigns of World War I and II nearly strangled Great Britain twice, and was a key factor in that the defeat of Imperial Japan. The resulting response was the development of a new kind of military action: Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW). Just over 100 years old, ASW is a combination of tactics, technologies, platforms (ships and aircraft), weapons, and intelligence fusion which seeks not just to destroy enemy submarines, but also their infrastructure and ability to operate. At best difficult, tedious, dangerous, ASW is an essential part of naval warfare today. Doing it badly or not at all is almost a guarantee of defeat when facing an enemy equipped with submarines.


    To learn more about the development and history of ASW, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited respected U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Norman Polmar to discuss his new book, HUNTERS AND KILLERS, VOLUME1. The first of two volumes on ASW with co-author Edward Whitman, HUNTERS AND KILLLERS is a detailed examination and history of submarine hunting that covers Up to mid 1943. Listeners are encouraged to call in and ask questions of Mr. Polmar, in what will be a rare live media appearance.

    ONCE UPON A TIME WE HAD A COUNTRY

    in Politics

    I was speaking to a gentleman who as a boy witnessed the disintegration of Lebanon. Once known as the Paris of the Middle East. The banking center of the Arab world. He was about ten years old and this is what he recalled. The electricity went out and when it came back on there were tanks in the street and the country had a new government. When the bullets stopped flying everything was rubble. He and his brother moved to Iran under the Shah. He said Iran was like paradise. The people were happy and prosperous. They were modern. He blames Jimmy Carter for what happened to Iran and says he should be hanged for what he did.I recall Jimmy carter when the Shah was exiled he did not want to let him in. Then like in Lebanon the lights went out and when they came back on the Ayatollahs were in charge and the war with Iraq began. His brother was a commercial airline pilot and he was just retuning to Teheran. He was in the pilots lounge when when he was ordered to make a short flight. He walked out to the aircraft and it was packed with children standing room only. He asked where are the children going. He was told they are going to the battlefield to walk thru minefields. Now he is here in New York for many years. He loves the south. He told me that during the war of 1812 South Carolina sent more troops to fight for us than the entire New England states. Do American kids know that?. He respects red necks a term for hard working farmers with sunburns. Now he is afraid of what he escaped from twice is now here in the USA.out. George Washingtom sent Trump, Cruz and Carson.
