@traumamama LOL, yepper, a Classic flik and soooo funny.....6
@traumamama horrible to see young children walking around with Guns !! To know the indoctrination required to teach young ones to kill is beyond my comprehension...
yep, YP sent me pics of blue eyed blondes !! Just never thought about it but it does makes sense, talk about a melting pot over the Centuries....6
@Kiyabear @YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle totally agree, and WOW to retire and then join the Peace Corps is Amazing....6
@YankeePapa @Kiyabear @Recon6 @LawyerHandle YP, I am sorry to hear many of the youths (youts?) of today will not be afforded the opportunity to 'grow up' the military provided me...
the reduction in force, at a critical time in our history imo, will preclude many young people 'finding themselves' via the military route many of us took.
While it took me a couple of tempestuous years to get my head out of my rectum before I realized what the 'real world' was all about, those years are the most valuable of my long life...
I know several young men who would profit greatly by being introduced to the rigorous Standards imposed by the Military and further, their lives will be all the less for it...
One young man, 20 yrs old, two kids, lacks the intelligence to roll up the carts at the local Wally World! Before anyone objects to his Serving, he could probably fill a few 'slots' in the Army i.e. cook, feces burner etc. or if Absolutely desperate, he could join the Marines....6
@Kiyabear @Recon6 @YankeePapa @LawyerHandle Yes ! And I absolutely Love fishing, of any kind and there are several lol...6
@Kiyabear @YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle Good stuff KB..and for a large portion of my life I was able to accomplish several of the items on your list...
still try whenever the opportunity presents itself....6
@JHR damn, you are Always so difficult to contact lol....6
@Kiyabear @Recon6 @YankeePapa @LawyerHandle copy, I too am a fan of 'fishing'
seems not many are with us on this anymore....things are so convoluted it is easier to just 'monify' it and ignore the reality.....6
@YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle anyone notice the Insanity in this??
I cannot believe the amount of sheer stupidity running rampant in America today!! It doesn't matter the 'subject' just seems so Much is FUBAR !! ....6
@Kiyabear @YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle kinda go hand in hand don't they?? A lack of either and not much will be accomplished or am I just being too disgusted??.....6
@YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle copy, it just seems we aren't doing much except Retreat ! Crowing about 'ending the Iraq War' etc. when we all know all he did was set a date for departure.
And this nightmare on the southern border is such a mess I fail to see any possibility of a positive outcome?? I am all for aiding the children, but down there it is far more than just children. Most of us are aware of the ferocity of the gangs etc. that dominate their societies and it is Coming to America, at least that which isn't already here, just look at places like Chicago.....6
Damn !! With all the 'happenings' going on in the world today, this diversion had me on the edge of my seat lol. After I encompassed all of the physical and mental stress, I wanted to skip ahead and learn Who had won ??
I too was cheering for Glen, but after learning it was Mike, it's all good!!
May '15 sure is a looong time to wait for such good stuff.....6

@JHR J, perhaps this will end the way the Meo did it back in '68 ??
'Killing the children and the old people so they don't have to suffer under the hand of the Communists'
due primarily because of the refusal of the U.S. to provide sufficient aid....
the hill people were fighting, and quite well, however, they were not able to repel the North being supplied by China and Russia....
once again we left them hanging and they resulted to what they felt best, killing their own.....6
@YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle copy, I finally got your pics and understand the 'blond hair, blue eyes'
The video that LH sent had that girl and her blond hair caught me off guard, she looked so out of place.
After looking at the pics it became evident there are Many such....6
@Kiyabear @Recon6 @JohnChristopher1 Rec'd + 1
I spent last night looking at the 'new' faces and remembering the old ones and feeling so impotent.
Nothing will change, as you said, and there is no hope of such, and therein lies the tragedy imo.
As I mentioned previously, we are not the world's Police, however, when the once greatest nation on earth spends it's time bickering over politics, "the country of Africa" has no chance.
America's Warriors are always willing to stop this type tragedy. Sadly it is the 'leaders' with risk aversion and cya policies sit around and discuss b.s. while people are Dying.
I hear Your message, I always hear Your message and I know that here on SOFREP are Many who would help, but there is no hope coming and no help either. I too cry for my children and grandchildren, knowing the world I leave them will be far less hospitable then the one I fought for them to inherit and they are less prepared than I was for what is coming....6

@Kiyabear @joesig @Loren Schofield @LawyerHandle o is simply symptomatic of all the trash in Washington, greedy bastards ensuring their place and their fortune.
During his speech this morning I found myself wishing he had taken a course on public speaking in college/law school, besides Reading each sentence on the paper to include His very Own Thoughts....6
@YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle I was enjoying the beautiful picture of the Children, about midway down I found a picture of a woman surrounded by Dead Children!!! and the tears began....
I realize America can not be the world's Police, however, some things should Not be Allowed !! The destruction of Children !!
I don't give a fuck about politics, or p/c bullshit, etc. but when I see Children being slaughtered, regardless of country, I become enraged.
Our southern border is being over run. I say accept the Children, turn everyone else away, especially the young men! WTH, they can fight for their freedom like we did, but Children have no choice, DAMN....6
@YankeePapa @Recon6 @LawyerHandle thanks YP, got this one....6
@Kiyabear @JohnChristopher1 damn Stormy, those thoughts would have kept me up all night !!
All I had are kids and women on a mountain in a God forsaken piece of dirt with the devil waiting for them...
Sounds eerily familiar doesn't it, to a time long forgotten for most.....6
@Txazz @Recon6 @LawyerHandle thanks Tex, bleak picture for these ppl, little hope....6
@Kiyabear @Recon6 thanks Stormy, been having nightmares of those ppl on that frkn mountain!! I Hate mountains as once you are on top, and you Must control the high ground, there is no way down.....6
