FWIW the Congress/legislature bit in Art 88 has been held to only apply to to Congress/a legislature as an institution, so while an officer could get in trouble for calling Congress a bunch of baby murdering dumbasses, feel free to mock Congressman Internfucker to your heart's content.

Didn't that one guy who went to the Ron Paul rally in uniform get burned? I remember it prompted all sorts of briefings about political activity in uniform. Then again, if you show up at a Ron Paul rally you're probably tubo stupid by default.

If you mean this guy there's a good bit of difference between 'showing up' and 'speaking at the podium on national TV'. Also, IIRC you can't actively campaign in uniform, which it sounds like that guy was doing, and which again is well beyond simply showing up. Even then, it says all he got was a letter of reprimand; I'm not Army so I'm not positive but that hardly sounds like hard time or the brig.

A letter of reprimand can destroy your career if you're in the Army.

An LOR in the AF ends your career. As an officer, you will not get promoted again and you go right to the top of the list of the "guys to separate next round of force-shaping," just under the guys in jail/prison. As an E, you won't get promoted again and almost certainly will not be allowed to reenlist. You also get bumped up the separations list.

NATO apparently thinks the Russians may rather soon make a play for Moldova:

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ukraine-crisis/nato-russia-has-sizeable-ready-forces-ukraine-border-n59801

quote:

Russia has amassed enough forces on Ukraine’s border to reach Moldova’s vulnerable Trans-Dniester region, NATO’s top military commander warned on Sunday.

Moscow has mobilized a “very, very sizeable and very, very ready” military contingent on Ukraine’s eastern boundary, Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Philip Breedlove told a conference in Brussels.

He said he was worried the troop build-up could pose a threat to the mainly Russian-speaking separatist region, whose local pro-Russia leader has already appealed to Moscow for an annexation similar to the one carried out in Crimea.
...
Breedlove said NATO was very concerned that the region was, in Russia's view, was the "next place where Russian-speaking people may need to be incorporated."

"There is absolutely sufficient (Russian) force postured on the eastern border of Ukraine to run to Trans-Dniester if the decision was made to do that and that is very worrisome," he said, according to Reuters.

Also there's some analysis that says this conflict has been deliberately built up for some time:

quote:

Vladimir Putin may have moved against Ukraine because the Russian military is dependent on Ukraine’s military industry if the Kremlin leader is to achieve his plans to launch a broader world war, a conclusion that if true both suggests the directions of Putin’s next moves and the best ways in which Kyiv can counter them.
...
Specifically, the Kyiv analysts say that the article suggests the following conclusions. First, they say, “it seems that the Russian leader is seriously preparing for a third world war,“ given the size and nature of Moscow’s recent purchase orders from its own military-industrial complex.

Second, they conclude, the idea that “Ukraine’s defense industry depends on Russia “is wrong.” On the contrary, the Russian military industrial complex at the strategic level “is highly dependent on Ukraine” and its military industry for key production. Without that production, Russian firms cannot deliver what Putin seeks.
...
There are three reasons the original Sovershenno Sekretno article was ignored or dismissed out of hand. First, a month ago it seemed highly improbable to many that Putin was actually interested in prosecuting a wider war and challenging the West so openly. Now, those possibilities seem far less far-fetched.

Second, the enormous detail offered by the article concerning the way in which the Russian defense industry actually works and how dependent it is on plants in Ukraine and other neighboring countries overwhelmed many readers who have forgotten that Stalin located the defense industry in this way to tie the country together.

IIRC Soviet tank production was heavily Ukraine-based. Also it can be argued that military spending as economic stimulus, if it didn't cause WWII, certainly hastened its inevitability, and if the article's assertions are correct, military spending as economic stimulus is exactly what Putin is doing.

quote:

U.S. officials think that Russia recently obtained the ability to evade U.S. eavesdropping equipment while commandeering Crimea and amassing troops near Ukraine's border.
The revelation reportedly has the White House "very nervous," especially because it's unclear how the Kremlin hid its plans from the National Security Agency's snooping on digital and electronic communications.

One interesting fact involved is the presence of Edward Snowden in Russia, where he has been living since flying to Moscow from Hong Kong on June 23.

In August, primary Snowden source Glenn Greenwald told The Associated Press that Snowden "is in possession of literally thousands of documents ... that would allow somebody who read them to know exactly how the NSA does what it does, which would in turn allow them to evade that surveillance or replicate it."

There are a couple ways to read this, but to say that the US missed the buildup, and that this was all Snowden's fault, seems a bit of a stretch when people were posting troop and tank movements to Twitter and Youtube practically in realtime.

A theory I've heard a lot from some of the people I know who work for NSA/DISA contractors is Snowden was probably getting paid in one for or another by the Russians from the very start. Since the whole thing is playing out like the old days where the Soviets would both disgrace the CIA, pitting it against its own population and disgracing it internationally while still obtaining the info they wanted.
