@seasalt55 RR Sir. Sincere respect for your service. TKW
@seasalt55 Understood. This issue has been discussed at length on other articles. The only thing different about this Op becoming a book is that it was the Navy that asked Marcus Luttrell to write it. It was their idea - not his.
Put 'er on my tab!! After being here a little over a year now my wife finally quit asking about all the SOFREP charges on my credit card. Good-2-Go!! :-)
Sergei: I honestly respect the guts it took to put this article out there. Nothing you said is wrong. It's just hard to get past seeing the pictures of Tspeedbump & Tflashbang standing in the crowd directly behind the innocent people that will soon become victims of their evil hate.
Rolling Stone should not have put Tflashbang on the cover. I refuse to view Tflashbang as having a halo above his head until the day his guilty sentence is made official.

Another rock solid article Major. Personally, I find this type of article to be extremely helpful in letting me see & understand the situation for what it is and is not. It's like putting military glasses on civilian eyes. Thank you.

Virginstateofmind: Differing PoV's make SOFREP a great place. But everyone knows that if they comment then they better have their shit wired tight. Like Shag said, "It's not personal". This is why we all come here.
Here's some basic counterpoints to your argument:
1. You need to listen to the entire 911 call and not just the snippet played by the MSM. Context is everything.
2. "...but if I see a strange man I don't know following me and threatening me, I am going to do everything in my power to incapacate him before he kills me." GZ did not threaten TM and following a person is not a crime. TM matched the physical (not just race) description of the reported perp. What you described above is exactly how TM jumped GZ, ended up on top of GZ in a full mount position, began assaulting GZ, caused GZ to fear for his life, then drew his weapon and fired. That's what makes this a self defense case.
We all base our opinions on life experiences. No problem there. I just think you need to go back and re-check some of the actual facts in the case. TKW
@Virginstateofmind Thanks for bringing your comment over here. It is appreciated.
As an homage to T9 I offer the following the reply: "Dafuq?"
V: It's good that you are, "...more than happy to explain my POV on this topic" because the case evidence seems to contradict your statement. Please elaborate.

Jaycel: OH Gawd! And people ask why I distrust Democrats: DETROIT
MAJROD: In a.comment below you mentioned that a private source had confirmed to you that spots had already been promised to females wishing to be SOF. While I am not going to ask anything specific about your source. I do have a question: How is a decision like that sent down the chain? Is it something like a directive/mandate or would there be direct orders given by top brass and passed down? I understand how to follow orders but I'm clueless as to which situations do or do not require an official order. My assumption is that anything said by anyone with higher rank is essentially an order. Correct? But if this all started in DC then how a bunch of Congress men "order" the military to do it? How can that decision already be made? And who the hell made it?
@ArcticWarrior Just jerkin' your chain AW. Like @Recon6 likes to say, "We don't call him the professor for nothing."

@Virginstateofmind I don't think he's the first. What about Clinton, Coolidge, Harding & Wilson? I don't think they did either.
@Tango9 Nope. You have too much actual military experience. I have none therefore I would be a much better choice for head-decision-maker.
*This is basically what they are currently doing to our troops.
@TygeRInfantrY I am going to guess that your above civilian comment was intended as more of a reply to a specific individual or comment that pushed some serious buttons for you. Is this truly how you view those of us who are civilians?
I want to give you the benefit of the doubt because in a previous article (http://sofrep.com/7874/d-day-june-6th-1944/) you also made the comment, "...I can never respect someone who doesn't have the balls to wear a uniform or at least be willing to stand behind the ones who do!" This seems to indicate that you do see that there is a role we civilians can fill that benefits our military.
So, which is it? How do you see us?
