Great review Steven! I picked up this book at Costco last week and haven't read it yet. I was worried I wouldn't understand much of it, so your review helped. Especially this, "Rather than bore the casual reader with technical details of each rifle, Kyle gives just enough of a layman’s explanation to each weapon so that said casual reader will understand what’s going on." :)

I'm doing the Tough Mudder challenge in San Diego towards the end of this year......and I though that was going to be rough!

@Txazz @ACB aka ACS Yeah, I read that article when it came out. This is the one that sent up red flags for me a few months ago. http://insidemovies.ew.com/2013/02/08/bradley-cooper-american-sniper-chris-kyle-biopic/
I thought it was pretty egotistical of Cooper to want to play the part of Kyle, but who knows though, maybe he'll play Kyle great, and maybe he really won't pull any political BS in the movie. Here's to hoping.

@linwood @ACB aka ACS LOL you're crackin' me up!

@linwood Nodong means "working".
@Txazz I read this a few days ago. Not sure how I feel about this yet. As long as they don't try to fulfill some political agenda through this film, I think the movie will be pretty good. Since Bradley Cooper is playing Kyle in the movie, he really has some big shoes to fill.

Great article Laura!
Your article motivated me to dig up a documentary about Beslan to watch tonight. I knew some of the focal points of the Beslan school hostage crisis, but I guess I didn't know enough.

@ArcticWarrior @ACB aka ACS I agree, but I highly doubt North Korea is going to do anything at all. They've been doing this for over 50 years. Part of the reason why the average South Korean citizen is not worried about any of this,
@ArcticWarrior AW, you're talking worst case scenario.
@Minou_Demimonde @ArcticWarrior LMAO There are villages near the DMZ, but not enough to make things bad, I'll let my family in Seoul know that they should be worried, even though they're really not.
@ArcticWarrior @ACB aka ACS I see, well I kinda learned something new. 35 miles is still a ways away from Seoul though, it would reach the tail end. Would it not?
@majrod @ArcticWarrior ^^^That's true.
@ArcticWarrior @ACB aka ACS wait a second, you're telling me, that the ROKs would not be able to see the norks, moving in artillery, and set it up before the ROKS could fire first at the DMZ line?
@ArcticWarrior @ACB aka ACS Not bogus intelligence. The Koksan is North Korean designed, so there's not much known on it, and their gun is estimated to shoot 40 mi.
@ArcticWarrior @ACB aka ACS I disagree, Seoul is out of their artillery range, they would have to send a scud, or another short to medium range type missile at Seoul to take them out. That's why the PAC-3 was sent there.
@majrod @ArcticWarrior I disagree, I see more advantages of liberating North Korea. Besides which, asians are pretty smart, and hardworking. ;) I'm sure they'd get on their feet pretty quickly.
