Here's the deal. I'm not SF, never was. Just an ex-squid with a tremendous respect for the men that carry that burden.
I'm on another message board, and a member there started throwing out some claims that I thought sounded flat-out ridiculous. What do you think of these statements?
Also, since I "am" a part of a modern army and was SF in Afghanistan wih the Muhajadeen fighting the Russians- i can attest personally at the total devastation and total ass whipping those "ill equipped" forces can inflict on this "modern army" you speak of.
I want to be wrong about this. I want to wind up having to publicly apologize profusely to this guy about being such an ass. But these statements just do not track with me.
I'm a 30 yr vet, a member of America's Elite and chosen soldiery and have been in EVERY armed conflict ( and some unpublished ones) from the Falklands to present except Mogadashu and have done it on every continent except Anarctica and faced about every type of enemy there is and have beaten them.
I've hit him up a few times for more information, and he's been a complete ass about the whole thing - another thing that powers up my fake-dar.
I'll post those here if ya'll want to see them. I figure there's got to be some snake-eaters on this board that were around Ft. Benning about the same time this cat claims to have been there.
For the record, this is what he sent to me when I asked him what units he had been with, and when:
I call bullshit. Am I off base here?
