Gotta agree with you there....

When I was active duty we were a pretty tight bunch. And even sometimes we didn't agree with the commands we did it, then as soon as we secured from the mission we bitched about it. If one guy wasn't pulling his weight, the rest of the guys let him know about it right then and there. But then again we were in open squad bays, no 2 or 3 man rooms. So it was a different world.

Let us know when your finished stomping your feet so we can get back to the topic of the thread ok?

Thanks.


Let us know when you are finished talking smack like a teenage girl.

I do not see the point in disrespecting those kids that choose to serve, all because you read a piece online written by a Right Wing nutbag.

I did read it, that's how I was able to figure out you're mixing up your conversations. One member said something to you that had nothing to do with Nick. My response to that member had nothing to do with Nick. Then you jumped in trying to make something not about Nick into something about Nick.

Re-read.


Lookie here big boy. I didn't post it to him, I posted it to you. If you can't read that's not my # problem.


Nor is it my problem that you managed to confuse yourself. Just trying to help, my parents raised me to be kind to the elderly and infirm.

Nope. I fear that may lead to a knife fight.

Cherry picking the OP's comments is typical of you when they oppose your position.


Except I wasn't replying to the Original Poster, I was joking with Shamrock. You having a hard time following along? Need me to write shorter than one sentence replies?

Yamamoto Tsunetomt is quoted as stating, "gives random instructions on how to behave properly as a homosexual samurai and how to take on a gay relationship with another samurai “the right way.”"


Oh, you must really hate him now. This makes it even juicier.

I see this thread took an odd turn. It appears it became a chest-thumping macho circle jerk where the old guys talk about what it used to be like to be men...because apparently they lost that a long time a go.


And using some of the photographic evidence supplied in-thread they may have a coronary getting up out of their Lay-Z-Boy to chase these good for nothin' youngins off their lawns. Pro tip: Put down the third helping of Sara Lee and let us fit fellows take care of business.

Are Millenials so soft that they're unable to defend their Country if a real war took place?


Maybe the current generation is just more intelligent and far more aware of the actual reality of the situation, than previous generations... They're not so inclined to blindly volunteer to be expendable pawns for TPTB.


So to you the current generation is much more intelligent and more aware.

Yet they cannot actually survive without cell phone service and they need crayons and coloring books to deal with the massive stress of... a written test.

I do enjoy your posts though... they so remind me of when I was a young teen. All idealistic and so incredibly naive.

The current generation will be the one that brings the US down.

Hopefully when the restructuring happens the survivors will drop the crayons, eat the petting pony and teach the therapy dog to guard the camp.

We shall see.

Fair enough... accept I'm 34 years old and far more jaded, than "idealistic"... lol.

Anyway, when I say more intelligent & aware, I obviously mean more knowledgeable than prior generations, which is a indisputable fact. Even when I was first born, the only real way a person could gain knowledge or be informed by world events, was by going to the library, reading a news paper, watching the nightly news, or just by word of mouth... Now just about everyone has a devise in their pocket, which allows them to research just about anything and connect with people all over the world with a few taps on a screen.

Its a whole new world...I guess a higher sense of individuality & entitlement is just apart of it.



The current generation will be the one that brings the US down.


I highly doubt it... Sorry to disappoint you.

So you are a millennial. Color me surprised. For the record, there is a chronological age and a mental age.

So basically you are trying to say that since you have so much more knowledge at your fingertips (but can't spell "device") that you somehow have a better grasp of reality and the world situation and life.

I would contend that all you really have is a "Device" that is a pretty neat tool for filling your head full of crap.

For the record, I don't wish for the end of the United States.

I just see no other reality. After all, you and yours will be in charge soon. A country run by people that don't understand... anything really.

That Major Gen. Frost isnt the brightest cookie in the box. He failed to maintain proper basic training standards and is now trying to scapegoat the recruits he failed to ensure got proper training.

“The bottom line is that when you graduate Basic Combat Training, you are supposed to be ready for your first unit assignment [and] to be ready to step on a plane and go to combat.”

A soldier/airman/seaman/marine is absolutely NOT ready for ANYTHING right out of basic training. All enlisted go to secondary schools after BMT and before they go to their first assignment. Sending untrained infantry, mechanics or even cooks is a recipe for disaster.
