While I cannot play the video shown in the first post, I can see a single screenshot of it (if you will). Surely I am not the only one who noticed
that the silhouette of the “weapon” shown is a Tippmann A5 paintball gun, and that is not a JSOC logo.
My guess is that the video was made by teenagers playing paintball on a “mil sim” style team, and that is the logo they made to emulate their
heroes. I am guessing that in the video, the people may look and act like soldiers, presumably wearing camouflage and having equipment that could look
like real weapons, grenades, etc. to the average person, but it is military simulation paintball being played as a hobby. My nephew plays that style
of paintball and I have supplied him and his friends with lots of equipment and shown them how to set up their gear. I went to a couple of games, and
it was pretty fun when the referee system worked properly.
That being said, relax and find the history of JSOC, I am sure it is public information and is online somewhere. It is a unified command of sorts,
created after an incident in the early 80s or late 70s, if memory serves. The existence of the command in itself does not imply any sort of nefarious
purpose. Rather, it is simply for a more efficient way to share resources and coordinate things between the different services.
I served in two units that fell under JSOC at different times. I still work with them in my career (with a federal agency) these days, in fact the
unit I was in trains the unit I work in today, and sometimes vice-versa. The relationships exist to get things done in a collaborative effort and not
for any strange tinfoil-hat plots or back-room dealings. People who waste their time worrying about such concerns have probably watched too much TV or
read too far into things. Those who know me from this site know that I am very blunt and tell things like they are, I am not sugar-coating the
situation. As someone mentioned earlier in the thread, the personnel of JSOC and whatnot are not the people to worry about, everyone was indeed very
patriotic and cared about the community-at-large. And once, just once, we did indeed discuss how we would not take up arms against citizens if ordered
to do so. A full bird Colonel and many other brass were present, men I knew for years and trusted with my life, and I do not think they were just
saying things for the sake of saying them.
