The Minuteman

The Minuteman

 

The reality is the ruling elite fear the citizenry still and because the citizenry is armed, they cannot just massacre ideological dissidents at will. Instead, they have to get crafty and do it through things like an experimental vaccine and call it something scary like COVID. Those with real power and in the national government do not represent us. They hate us and seek to return humanity to serfdom under their rule and undo centuries of progress made by the average citizen to have a better life. This is all by design, it is not an accident.

Keep your powder dry, because it is the only thing that keeps them partially in check.

God bless you and God bless Dixie.

Combined Arms for the Minuteman

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

The term “combined arms” conjures up images of tanks advancing with aircraft screaming overhead and infantry charging in front. While this is one modern, conventional form of a combined arms technique, it is far from the only one. And just because the modern Minuteman has limited types of arms available does not mean that he cannot still adopt a combined arms approach to combat. All that is required is a little creativity, knowledge, and the proper training.

Let’s start with the definition of “combined arms” as defined by the US Army publication ADRP 3-0 Unified Land Operations.

“Combined arms is the synchronized and simultaneous application of arms to achieve an effect greater than if each arm was used separately or sequentially.”

In this sense, the term “arms” means any form of weapon, combat vehicle, or unit. On a large scale your “arms” could be an infantry regiment and a fighter…

The Tank is not Obsolete and Other Observations about the Future of Combat

 

“The available data from Ukraine, as well as the recent war in Nagorno-Karabakh, indicate that tanks are still critical in modern warfare and their vulnerabilities have been exaggerated. Russia’s heavy tank losses can be explained by employment mistakes, poor planning and preparation, insufficient infantry support, and Ukrainian artillery. The use of Javelins and other light anti-tank systems in Ukraine has not demonstrated that the tank is obsolete any more than the Sagger anti-tank guided missile did in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, as discussed by David Johnson in these pages.”

Hidden In Plain Sight: Camouflage & Movement From A USMC Scout Sniper

 

An important concept is to stop, look, listen, smell, and plan (SLLSP). When moving across long distances, the environment can cause you fatigue, taking away your stealthies. Conduct an SLLSP. Stop all movement. Look around the area. Listen to your surroundings. Smell the environment. Plan your route. The focus of SLLSP is to keep you in tune with your surroundings and to get your bearings while moving with camouflage. You must be slow and deliberate.

Alberto Bayo y Giroud was a Cuban-born officer who fought in the civil war in Spain and the revolution in Cuba.

He was responsible for training the small cadre that would land on the island in 1956 and which included Ernesto Guevara and the Castro brothers. This volume is drawn from his experience gained over the years of fighting that would topple the Batista regime, as well as lessons he learned during his famous marine assault on Majorca in 1936. It is a culmination of a lifetime of combat leadership. This book is a product of the post-revolutionary period in Cuba, during which the fledgling state attempted to export their uprising to the rest of Latin America. It was intended as a practical guide for those interested in starting their own guerrilla units, detailing the organization of such a group and the first offensive actions that should be taken against the state. We believe books that exist only for “historical interest” are bourgeois trivialities, and so we’ve taken the liberty of re-writing certain sections of this work in order to provide an updated picture. We hope to preserve its practical function as a guerrilla guidebook, as well as to present an accessible version free of the typos and translation errors that characterize other free copies.
