I recently came across a ‘doomsday’ list (actually an infographic) from BBC which listed a host of apocalyptic threats – some realistic and others not so much (IMO), while others were even humorous.

It is the first time that a National Guard field artillery battalion has been activated to support the mission.

While I’m all for training, why the Middle East for the state’s National Guard?
Do we plan to fight another war soon?
