@tf15 Thanks for clarifying. You have to be careful when pulling graphics from other sources.

@Ullr I agree, the Europeans are going to have to have the lead in this.

Its true. Brandon is a "frost back" that came down here from Canada to steal American jobs!

@SamCassidy I'll have to write it after finals are over. I've got some recommendations for the sequel as well.

@trazz The article wasn't really addressed to John Q. Public but rather a select group of people who use a lack of information in the public sphere, due to OPSEC and classifications, as well as general ignorance to spread disinformation about US military operations.

I was going to write this review myself. I just finished playing through the director's cut. Great game! I'm really looking forward to the sequel.

@BrandonWebb @JackMurphyRGR Doesn't hold water. Assassinating him would have been the worst course of action for the KGB. They had nothing to gain from that and much to lose, up to and including nuclear war. I don't think for a moment that the director of the CIA ordered JFK assassinated either.
1 week, 5 days ago on Why President Kennedy Was Likely Assassinated By The KGB, Not The CIA
@GodblessUSSF I've had this conversation with "the mafia" and they love to take credit for the killing. Their tale is that they killed Kennedy not for cracking down on the mob, but because JFK murdered Marlyn Monroe thus, casting the mob in a positive and honorable light. I don't believe it for a moment. However, that conversation I had in a restaurant in New Jersey must have been damn entertaining for the FBI agents listening in.
Can't help but disagree. Why did the US government let Oswald back into the country and grant him freedom of movement when they knew full well that he had traveled abroad and married a KGB agent's daughter? The CIA had plenty of motive to kill JFK. You have to look at the bay of pigs, the Dulles brothers, and some of Kennedy's remarks about the CIA and what he wanted to do to it after he was re-elected. That said, I don't think the "CIA" had him assassinated. That's not how things work and blaming the CIA is just a ridiculous as blaming the KGB. Why would the KGB assassinate the President (who would be easily replaced by the way) who wanted to dismantle the CIA and withdraw from commitments in South East Asia? Would they be willing to risk open, and maybe nuclear, war simply to kill a President who would literally be replaced by the vice-President minutes later?
@dm8471 @JackMurphyRGR I would argue that launching a war against Iran has a extremely high change of completely destabilizing Iran for decades. We have recent experience with this sort of thing in the country just to the left of Iran.

@Fi_Blog_1 @Fred82 Exactly. You can tell how lost people are on this topic when they start talking about Iran being an irrational actor. Irrational actors can't possibly complete highly scientific endeavors that require rational thought...oh, like building a nuclear bomb. The irrational actors stuff comes from pseudo-intellectuals writing for World Net Daily.
@dm8471 I would love to know why you think that launching a war against Iran would stabilize Iran and leave Israel intact.
@majrod @kerpat14 Wow, Hitler.
Wah, wah, I want my war! Wah, wah!
@joesig @BrandonWebb @MysterBlack Speaking of 60 Minutes (and I addressed this previously) I didn't think it warranted any response other than a brief post on our Facebook page. The 60 minutes story was silly and not worth our time or yours.

@joesig @BrandonWebb @MysterBlack Good luck brother. We're not for everyone, I get that.
A special branch operation which recruited a SAS soldier and was funded by the Shah of Iran and often supplied by stealing supplies from the local police... That's a black operation!

@big_hatdance I will have to find a copy of the book. There are tons of guys out there who have refused medals and have also refused induction into the Ranger Hall of Fame.
