This week, we’re joined by Joel (Airborne Rifles of GrogHeads), and discuss Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations, Russian adventurism, and Christmas Cards.

I kind of shared Joel's background with Command-lots of Fleet Command, no Harpoon, saw the game, got it, and then immediately had fun.

That was a very good podcast. Two thumbs up for the guest AR. Joel sounds as thoughtful and rational as he writes. You feel better knowing guys like that are out in the field.

Damnit Jim, you make the Russians sound like they have a case. (Yes, I know Jim is the other guy, Brant) Look, there is a big difference between Napoleon, Hitler vs the structure of a modern western democracy. The public would not support a war of conquest from NATO. That was clear until numb nuts Bush Jr took Iraq on a pretext. As for their paranoia, it seems to me they use it to further their goals. We don't seem to have a head of state that goes cruising with a biker gang. We don't use bikers as state thugs. The rest belongs in the Ukraine thread so I will leave it there.

Now for the gripe: the mp3 downloads of 7, 8 seems to be about 1/2 of the full podcast.
