@CL0VR I'm pretty sure that training, knowledge, and resources will beat will power every time.  Some half starved Jihadi out in the desert has a ton of will power, but that won't save him from A-10's doing strafing runs on his ass.

@flagg Recent developments in neuroscience appear to agree with that assessment.

@pamlful After watching these videos, I think she is missing a lot of stuff.  For starters, she doesn't realize that people like me became soldiers because of who we already are, not that the Army made us into sociopaths and then cut us loose on America after the war.

@ArcticWarrior @LawyerHandleDid you guys see that outlandish report from the SPLC stating that right wing extremist groups have increased their membership by like 5000% since Obama became President?  The report had ZERO citations and no notes on their statistical methods at all.

@BrandonWebb @JackMurphyRGR  I'm not about turning lesbians, I'm about turning anti-war types.  Deep down she wants to go slumming with dudes like us, trust me on this...

I think Kathleen is cute.  She just needs a barrel chested freedom fighter in her life.

@SEAL76 @JackMurphyRGRA lot of people did business with the Nazis, including on this side of the Atlantic.

@SEAL76 Yes and no.  They run a sizable arms trade and have kept it going because of the economic benefits, however, that does not mean Swiss policy aligns with any of the countries you mention.  But yes, there have been exceptions to the neutrality policy, it sometimes exists in the context of "plausible deniability" I think.

@Tom_H I translated the article and didn't see anything in there about gunshot wounds in Mali or Iraq, just questions about a possible deployment to Mali.

@clluelo I think this is the double edged sword that SOF units, particularly in democracies face.  On one hand there is a need for secrecy, on the other hand there is a need for public support for the troops.  This effects everything from recruiting to unit funding.

@SEAL76 I did staff duty a few times up at 5th Group's headquarters.  Part of your duties is to do a security check and make sure all of the unit's facilities are locked up.  Just by going around the unit turning door knobs you would not believe where I could walk right into...and so could anyone else.

@jimmorris  I agree.  A lot of guys beat their chest and say "fuck 'em, they're just gooks/hodgies."  Now you got active duty SOF operators cracking up in PTSD clinics.  It ain't for no reason.  Karma can be a bitch, but some things are so dark that others will do anything to avoid the issue.  I'm not as interested in Karma as much as I'm interested in justice.

@TheNorthRemembers Now that I looked at the article, I am glad that they picked up on the main point.

@TheNorthRemembers I love how "over a hundred" quickly becomes "hundreds" or "thousands" when people pick up this story.

@DL_Fleming You're describing a self licking ice cream cone.  Who is the blue falcon here, the guys engaging in death squad tactics or the guy who wrote about the most minor crime out of a long list of them?  Serious question to think about.  I know I should think about the "greater good" and protect the "name brand."  I've heard it before and I've had friends turn their backs on me because I won't let this issue drop.  I think that if people had the whole story, it would become a lot more clear as to why I wrote this, and maybe one day they will.

@YankeePapa @JohnChristopher1A lot of the drama and suspicion between India and Pakistan could be seen as akin of that between the Jews and Muslims in the Middle East.  It's bitter.
