@aGrimm It's a case of mutually assured destruction. If Brennan and Feinstein start airing eachothers dirty laundry this thing can get ugly fast.

@corporatecoffee No, it does. I just mean that being a private in Ranger battalion doesn't mean you are going to walk onto a para-military contract right off the bat.

@mashdoc I've graduated now. You're right, our Dean was a solid dude who really went out of his way to help guys out.

@mashdoc I wish! This what the subject I wrote on my college application for being the area I wanted to study.
@YankeePapa Keith Nell has the best story about telling the Indig not to mess around because Chameleons watch them. Since they can see in two directions at once they see everything and told Keith what they were doing.

@rickvafd The big man is definitely not to be fucked with but in West Africa he is usually stuffing dolla dolla bills in his pockets and running to France.
@LadyHW Yes, and if you look at pictures of the operation closely it is quite clear that USSF was working with the PKK not the Peshmerga...

@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.

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.

@ColonelProp Yes, indeed it does.
@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.

@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.
