Porous borders have allowed any and all to enter.  Add to that the 'conversion' of Americans and we suddenly some unknowns, and perhaps they are the most dangerous of all as they can move about freely.


This is going to get ugly imo, and the biggest damage will come from those of which we are unaware, but that's jmo....6

I am of the belief they are well aware of such, only a blind idiot would not see what is happening and respond accordingly.  The attention span of most Americans is merely seconds on this issue when a comprehensive 'control' plan should be implemented imo.


Several of us have been discussing this Very issue, 'it is coming, they are here, and it is coming'....6

@JHR @Recon6 I can only Hope.  While I think it is primarily a 'formality' as JV has screwed the pooch as far as being a SEAL is concerned, imo.  I cannot fathom any enterprise related to them in which JV would be welcome or included.  That is why I fail to understand any honorable motive he may have had for pursuing this avenue.


By 'winning' the court battle he still Lost with the Community, therefore, what kind of victory did he obtain??  Just look at the division on REP where SEALs are held in such Esteem !!


There are lines that are not crossed within certain Communities, whether it be Blue, SEALs etc.  I am firmly in the majority.....6

@JHR @Recon6 @joesig @K9NSP  I will begin with the end of your post, Done Deal !!  I'm quite sure Q is in for anything our group plans, and will check with him to be certain.  Would absolutely be thrilled to come to your AO!!  You and the Pilot are my Friends, none better.


You had me laughing at the DB next door !!  I have been waiting and wondering for months as to the status of that.  Now, "face planted" you have me on edge LOL and I look forward to the story, coming from the Pilot lol, his 'mellowness' shades a fierce heart and ppl should beware...


I've followed your 'doggie' stories, and remember a beautiful black one in Destin... so sorry we weren't 'allowed' to enjoy her more lol.  Labs make great partners, but circumstances often require something of a more violent nature, as you well know.....6

@RobbyRobinson1 @Recon6 @joesig @JHR @K9NSP @Mino1  or better yet, hopefully people will revert to civility and engage once again in entertaining and informative dialogue, the Real reason to come to REP.


we often have such great people entering into conversations and we learn so much as there is such diversity in education and experience of our members.  Only occasionally does someone come with contempt for others, but while rare it does stir things up a bit.


I'm hoping all of the vitriol has been expended and the really good writers come back out, after watching the Ferguson, Mo disaster I'm simply tired of all the hate and anger....6

@joesig @Recon6 @JHR @K9NSP @Mino1 valid points all bro.  Totally agree on the power of emotion, can quickly change reality to fantasy to fit one's inclination...


I am of the opinion the attempt to remove JV from the SEAL community will fail.  As you said, he Earned it.  Some awesome names on that list tho, especially the widows and Gold Star families.


Overall this is just an unfortunate event.  I will feel better when it fades away and we can once again turn to Honor America's Warriors.


Likewise bro, if I understand some of your previous posts, you remain in harm's way.  Take care and Godspeed....6

@joesig @Recon6 @JHR @K9NSP @Mino1  Interesting story and fortunately it ended without violence.  However, I refer to your opening sentence, "I didn't know him".  Here on REP exist 100's of folks who watched CK on video, saw his comments, laughed at his jokes, read his books, and saw pictures of his wife and kids.  A bond was established, a bond among friends.  Watching Chris on the vids with BW etc. brought a sense of us all sitting around having a beer and telling b.s. stories and a lot of laughter.  Again, many feel they knew him as much as one can under such circumstances and his personality drew us to him.


When he was killed attempting to help another Vet, something he would do naturally, it tore a hole in our hearts.  It was much like losing a very close friend, and he was an American Hero!  Just look at the outpouring of love during his burial as the Honor Guard led the way and the roadways were lined with folks.


I know you understand, for many of us it doesn't matter what happened at McP's.  I have been in crowded bars, and in fights that were so sudden and over in a heartbeat, and only a couple of folks in the immediate area were even aware anything happened, and brother I'm not a SEAL. 


My point here, so many care about CK.  Whether we believe in the court case or not becomes immaterial.  No one was upset when it was JV v. CK, at least no one admitted such on REP.  We watched and waited for the trial.  That dynamic Changed when Chris Died!  I may be old school, however, you Never fuck with women and children!!  It is semantics to say Jesse went after the 'estate' 'publisher' etc.  I call bullshit.  JV is headed Downhill and saw a chance to get his name in the forefront again.  If, as he said, he wanted to clear his name, he would have dismissed the money as unimportant, less his fees.


Those of here that hold CK in high Esteem will not forgive or forget JV.  If you had followed the outpouring of love and consideration we demonstrated when Glen and Ty were killed in Benghazi, perhaps you would understand the Community of SOFREP a bit better?  So many of us generally CARE about America's Warriors, one reason is because so much of America has turned her back on them and that is something we refuse to do.  I'm not sure of your background, but I sense you belong to that fraternity, I know you are a Warrior....6

I'm frkn really Old School, but put simply, Warriors do Not fuck with women and children, Ever.  It was difficult enough in combat when not knowing just 'who' all the enemy combatants were as both of the above would be utilized.  But many on this site still awake in the middle of the night...


Few were against JV v. CK.... Many are against JV because of the death of Chris, rather simple dynamic imo.....6

@joesig @JHR @K9NSP @Mino1  ok joe, if CK did in fact embellish the truth quite often, and there a few here who believe he did, does that negate what happened at McP's ?  was that fantasy as well?


it is apparent you and a few are on a site where Many felt they 'knew' CK thru his books and his discussions on SOFREP and a few others actually knew him personally.  I don't actually care if he danced with the truth on occasion as he is a Hero to many and Saved countless lives and died attempting to help another...


I always admired JV for being an out of the box celebrity, did not care for his 'conspiracy' episodes but not a biggie for me.


I also had no difficulty when he went after CK, while alive.  The line was drawn when he was killed, that Changed the dynamic, again, for me...


I can only speak for myself, but at that point I would have withdrawn All litigation v. CK.  In time JV could/would have recovered his 'good name' however, to continue to pursue his assault once Chris was gone is despicable imo.  Whether against a company/group/representative/publisher, hell, whatever, it simply appears he was against Taya and the kids Even if not actually his agenda.  So many things he could do after winning, give the money back less fees etc.
