Report Details How Soviets Would Have Attacked American Carriers
By SOF Editor

A paper from the Naval War College by a former Soviet naval officer has revealed how the Soviets planned to target American aircraft carriers. This look carried some surprising revelations, particularly about the hybrid of influences from Axis powers in World War II.

In the paper, Maksim Y. Tokarev wrote due to an inability to match American carriers “for both economic and political reasons, the Soviet Navy had to create some system that could at least deter the U.S. Navy carrier task forces from conducting strikes against the naval, military, and civilian infrastructure and installations on the Kola and Kamchatka Peninsulas, Sakhalin Island, and the shoreline around the city of Vladivostok.”

Billionaire Gun-Grabbers Win in Washington, But Anti-Gunners Defeated in Senate Races
By Harold Hutchison

The mid-term elections held on 4 November were a mixed bag for supporters of the Second Amendment. While major victories included the demotion of anti-gun Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) to Senate Minority Leader, there were also some significant setbacks.

Anti-gun Senators like Mark Udall (D-CO), Kay Hagan (D-NC), and Mark Pryor (D-AR) were turned out by pro-Second Amendment voters in favor of Cory Gardner (pictured), Thom Tillis, and Tom Cotton, respectively. Anti-gun Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) was hed to 42% and faces a runoff in December that she is expected to lose (support NRA-PVF to make sure!). Anti-gun candidates running for Senate seats in Iowa (Bruce Braley), Kentucky (Alison Lundergan Grimes), and Montana (Amanda Curtis) were also defeated by pro-Second Amendment candidates. The news was not all good in the Senate, as gun-grabber Mark Warner (D-VA) lead Ed Gillespie by about 12,000 votes as of Wednesday morning, and anti-gun Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) also held on.

Naw...My Vote Doesn’t Count...or Why I Am A Stupid, Lazy Loser

RKB Memoir Cover

By Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, USAR (Ret.)
From the December, 2014 issue of SOF

On how many occasions, come election time, do you hear gunnies come up with some inane excuse as to why they are not going to vote? “Oh, my vote doesn't count,” they snivel. “The politicians will do whatever they damn please. A pox on both houses.” Well, SOFers, if that was the case, why do all the left-wing, bottom feeders swarm to the ballot box? Because they know that voting Democratic will ensure they get their share of slop at the public trough. Or I should say, filtching dollars out of your and my wallet?

French President Lays Wreath at Canadian War Memorial

French President Francois Hollande laid a wreath at the Canadian War Memorial to honor the recent deaths of two soldiers killed in the line of duty by home-grown extremists. Hollande paid tribute at the base of the War Memorial, the site where 24-year-old Corporal Nathan Cirillo was gunned down in late October while standing guard during a ceremonial watch to honor Canada's war dead near Parliament Hill. A few days earlier 53-year-old Warrant Officer Patrick Vincent was killed when a man ran him over with a car in Quebec.
