@JohnChristopher1 He has some real former operators lured into his fraud and they are counting on him to get contracts, hoping they can cash in. I've seen shit like this before. Vets will ignore the fraud because they get hypnotized by the money.

@dsepp I've talked to Smith's lawyer and tried to arrange a meeting but that request has not been granted thus far. I think I freaked his lawyer out a bit when I told him that I knew about Smith cruising around New York City using an assumed name...
@HittMann @LawyerHandle Well, the book hasn't been published and it isn't because Jamie is just too legit to quit...

@Recon6 @KineticFury Military assistance will go a long way. I although think SF teams should be placed in country to train, advise, and assist. However, this is how to resolve the military situation. Resolving the political situation is going to be much more complicated.

@Fred82 @JackMurphyRGR Kobani is a meat grinder and I think that unfortunately, the YPG is going to eventually lose the city to ISIS unless they divert all resources to the battle or the US military gets much more involved than just the periodic, and useless, airstrike.
Don't buy the propaganda...

I didn't see any combat or war atrocities over there although I did visit with many injured soldiers. Overall I would say that they kept me very safe despite the ieds and assassinations that are happening in friendly territory.
I think the YPG should start a similar process for volunteers.

@FilipMarek See my latest article about the international volunteers. As for women in combat…I spent a few days hanging out with a female sniper unit and some of those girls have more kills than cancer.
Correct...somehow doing porn became the new feminism. I don't get it.

Actually they graduate and realize how worthless their women's studies degree so they marry a banker on wall st. So much for Marxism.

@BulletTooth32 The modern man makes perfect sense for the modern woman. The modern woman wants a man who is a safe and a man who has had his balls chopped off is the safest form of man.

@RebeccaSummers They are out there Rebecca, and they are sick and tired of women who want to castrate them!
@Rick Dembroski 100% correct. When I was a kid I wanted to have a job and be able to roll with the grown ups. Today's kids want to artificially extend their childhood into forever. This is why we have grad school and PhD programs.

@ratt1niner @JackMurphyRGR @NVShawn College is filled with people who need to man up. Caveat: we can't say "man up" anymore because it is an offensive sexist term.

@ColonelProp Yes, that was a good class. The teacher was a nuclear seismologist! Professor Richards.
@ColonelProp I was very boring in class. After I realized that we were just supposed to read the texts and not really think about them I just stopped talking. I found that the teachers and TA's were actually open to dissenting opinions for the most part, but the other students would get really uncomfortable and offended.
@LadyHW I learned everything I need to know about African Marxist theory from ZIPRA and the ANC. Thanks but no thanks.
@majrod The feminist stuff comes into play is the more "subjective" philosophical classes like literature and suck. In political science classes that kind of stuff gets laughed at.

@NVShawn Oh, West African History. Horrible class. My teacher dropped dime on me in class because I referred to "half breeds" on our mid-term in reference to mixed blooded African women who acted as surrogates for slave traders. I put it in quotations and he said you can't use scare quotes as an excuse for racist statements. This is despite the fact that his own syllabus referred to African laborers as "mules" including the scare quotes. Unreal. I lost all respect for him after that. West African history is the class that history majors take and then switch their major to something else.
@NVShawn My African Politics class was one of the best I had.
@Ryno32 I think they would rather limit this to a SF engagement through host-nation counterparts but we'll see.

@Axeman15 I hear a lot of complaining about ROE's and the media, most of it uninformed in my opinion. Do you know who writes ROE's? The military does, not politicians. Next, do you really think our soldiers should have no ROE? Is it okay then if they go into a village and kill every man, woman, and child they find there? This is what you mean when you say no ROE, whether you realize it or not. Is this what we think American soldiers should be doing overseas?
How do you make the media off limits? We live in a democracy, people have the 1st amendment, and stripping away constitutional protections due to a knee jerk reaction is a horrible idea. Do you really want media censorship in America?
@Minou_Demimonde SOF on the ground by early 2015.
@Waterborne Has he made it clear that he won't do that? Understand that governments are like people in that they have a face which they show the public and a face which they only show in private.
@clluelo Look for an escalation after the elections and then a no-shit war early 2015.
@majrod @JackMurphyRGR Domestic politics plays a big role in political decisions obviously.
@Solgo1 Spanish SOF? I haven't seen that yet, but I guess it makes sense.
@majrod He has already put troops on the ground. All it takes is one press conference after the next beheading to reverse that policy.
@mayport204 Why so angry bro?

@Kimsey No, I never recorded lectures, never took pictures of the powerpoint up on the wall, never pulled a all nighter. Knowing what to read and what no to is a matter of prioritizing. Sometimes it is a matter of waiting to find out what is on the exam and then going back and pulling up the associated readings.
@Recon6 @Annica Spot on. Waiting until the last minute is a rookie move that the teenagers make. If you have other commitments outside of school and you wait to the last minute your work simply will not get done because you have to take your kid to the doctor, have a business meeting, ect...
@Minou_Demimonde Actually, the General Studies Dept. at Columbia has a fairly storied history of taking in vets. That will have to be another addition in this series. There were about 350 veterans at Columbia.
