For the most part nobody will really help you unless you spend a lot of time in advance forming your little relationships with the right people.

    As someone who also happens to be in the SOF community, I would appreciate you not lecturing me on what the SOF community is like. I generally have a beard, drink with the locals, and do other things that are outside of SOP for the regular military. My opinion on this subject is based upon actual operational experience working with multiple SF Groups and SEAL teams. It's one thing to quote history to me, but it is very much another to see the dichotomy of talent coupled with lack of discipline that overwhelmingly exists within most white SOF. I don't begrudge them for operating the way they do unless it gets me shot at for no good reason (which it has on more than one occasion), but don't expect me to feel all that sorry for them when CJSOTF trips over its collective swinging dick.

Sorry, U.S. Troops would be one thing, but these guys really-really shouldn't even be in the country.
    The saddest part of that incident is that Blackwater refused to give those men proper weapons or backup when going into hostile territory. Just as those men feared, they got rushed and murdered.

    The worst part is that because the wives of the men who died sued, the back-pay for those dead dudes is now forfeit to the company and they are now being counter-sued for breach of contract (you aren't allowed to sue, lol!). Not only is Blackwater evil to people unfortunate enough to live where they work, but they're fucking satanic to their workers.

    And in all fairness, these SEALs did breach the Geneva convention by beating up Objective Amber after he had been captured. (If it wasn't that they've got valuable info to torture out of him, they would have simply shot him I bet! Damn shame they need him alive.) I probably would have beat up the guy if I was in their position too. But, it is a warcrime.

    As was already said, U.S. Military (especially SEALS) are trained to make terrorists dead...they were humane and only gave that piece of **** a fat lip. They should be in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Hey, relax buddy. You don't need to take that however it is you took that to get upset. I'm talking about stuff I read in history books or memoirs and the thoughts I had after reading it. I'm glad that you shared your personal experiences with me just now, and you shouldn't construe anything as a lecture or whatever.

    So, you piqued my curiosity; how did you end up getting shot at for no good reason?

    Off topic. How is the SOF Tier system set up for the US?

    Rangers are Tier 2. Delta Force Tier 1. Are SEALS 1 or 2?

    I should read up about the Tier system. Do they have Tier 3?

    I can always count on you for an educational contribution to the public discourse.

    I guess that by chiming in you get to be a tough guy too.

    No.

    I'm telling you to shut the **** up to save your life, you fuckwit. You're wrong and you're being absolutely fucking retarded.

    Now, apologize and shut the **** up.
