Duck and Cover Motherfuckers!

The Sky is Falling

Or not.

Depending upon where in the world you are, its December 21st, and we're still here. All of this 2012/Nibiru is typical new-age BS with minimal actual science involved. If this body was already in our ellipses, even if it was several weeks out of SRA, it would be readily viewable by over 90% percent of the worlds population during our day and night cycles. 

Certainly wouldn't be any hiding it at this point. So today, and in the coming months when nothing happens, will the individuals across the web and YouTube have the self-respect to remove their fear mongering garbage?

I have a feeling they'll just extend the predictions (most are making lots of money off this nonsense). Did I say December 21st, 2012? What I actually meant was sometime in 2013.

Oh man, this pseudoscience bullshit really pisses me off!

Zero Dark Thirty

Stop the Madness!

I originally saw Bigelow's Hurt Locker when I was deployed to Iraq in 2010. I hated it. It was absolute garbage from the get-go, especially from a EOD standpoint. It's a overtly obnoxious, ignorant, and inaccurate piece of Hollywood shlock that loves to continue the time honored Hollywood tradition of portraying members of the Armed Forces as psychopathic lunatics. In furtherance of Bigelowlife's impression of our men and women in uniform, we're punched in the face with comments like; "Going to war is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It could be fun." "I don't know man, they all look the same." Which of course references an Iraqi.

Hollywood's stereotyped depiction of unstable vets is in full swing here, with an increasingly reckless adrenaline junkie and his disregard for safety and communication SOP puts everyone around him in danger. When the men in the ranks display cold, casual racism, an American Colonel savagely orders that an Iraqi be left to bleed to death and a profoundly unprofessional protagonist, so demented by war he can no longer love his own son, repeatedly endangers himself and the men in his charge, I don't see "nuance" or "depth" or "complicated" characters.

Hollywood prefers cowardice over courage; witless whiners to motivated individuals; gutless wimps and hollow phonies to men who know the meaning of self-sacrifice and integrity. That’s the only conclusion one can draw after seeing Hollywood’s recent plethora of anti-military films.

So, where does that leave Zero Dark Thirty? Probably along the same lines as Hurt Locker. It'll be a highly political film with minimal attention to detail, overt dramatization of events, and a singular hatred for the U.S. Military, though it will be subtle. I may have to force myself to see it just to write a review. Though I'll likely have to get nice and liquored up to do it.

Fan Mail


I get around 300+ messages in my YouTube inbox a day. Most of them are associated with user comments and a few are PM's dealing with various subjects from the documentaries I've posted, to questions about the military or something related to ArmA. That said, this is one of the most off the wall messages I've ever received. It's some sort of tirade about the Marines, Obama, Google, 9/11, Stolen Valor, assassination attempts and a few others.

The rambling continues on and on and it is hard to determine what the fuck this is actually about. This is due to the horrendous spelling, syntax and proper paragraph formatting errors. Well that, and it appears this individual is a whack-job of Galactic proportions.


All lawful aid and protection
When i was last in the USMC, marines decided to find it fun to help Obama, make sure no one was going to be there to help me against organised crime, it was people like Obama who was getting contracts to people who wanted to try and murder me, getting help of George W Bush meant that, i was able to go to military School that gained me a superior role in the USMC,

Now in 2012, i am not able to get any assistance from the Marine Corps because Marines have a hate for citizens who make no effort to defend the USA, i understand this because it is citizens who create conspiracies to get innocent people murdered.

it was citizens who helped make sure life seemed normal so that when i complained to police or tried to get help , It would be easy to say, i can not prove who or how people attacked me, so they are not going to help.. This defied the passport note of the Australian and american passport note.

example, having a request almost like a right to all lawful aid and protection or every assistance and protection

this is something i am not able to get because people find it fun to help hijack my industry Google. Originally marines wanted to help because Citizens who hide in life creating conspiracies and attack towards American Citizens. took jobs to help cover up the hijacking and murders carried out to hijack google.

I am currently not even able to get all lawful aid and protection from the Consulates in Australia because people got the support of Obama to keep the jobs i got them fired from because they used there power of position to help make sure i did not get help against people who tried to get me murdered, and stranded in Australia. ..

In 1994 i used to make claimed to people that i got purple hearts and Congregationalist medals of honour, Obama even came to the Whitehouse to give me the Medals all though he was not needed to

people who wanted me to prove this attacked me, i asked if they thought they were smart enough to see how i can prove this at the age i was in 1994/1995. they all agreed if i could prove it they would help...

i showed them the passport note, told them my story

and i was able to prove what i claimed..

now in 2012, people do not want me to prove it because they were lead to forget about me, and now they possibly remember me, they feel guilty because in 1995 the people who attacked me got Obama help to make sure i did not get all lawful aid and protection or every assistance and protection, because the claims i had of protecting the twin towers was a bluff to stop people trying to get me murdered or trying to help organised crime hijack my industry google..

Securing Syrian chemical weapons may take tens of thousands of troops

Reuters - The United States and its allies are discussing a worst-case scenario that could require tens of thousands of ground troops to go into Syria to secure chemical and biological weapons sites following the fall of President Bashar al-Assad's government, according to U.S. and diplomatic officials.

These secret discussions assume that all of Assad's security forces disintegrate, leaving chemical and biological weapons sites in Syria vulnerable to pillaging. The scenario also assumes these sites could not be secured or destroyed solely through aerial bombings, given health and environmental risks.
A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity to explain the sensitive discussions, said the United States still had no plans to put boots on the ground in Syria. President Barack Obama's administration has, in fact, so far refused to provide lethal support to the rebels fighting to oust Assad's regime and the Pentagon has played down the possibility of implementing a no-fly zone anytime soon.

Good call on the massive defense cut-backs...

It's Stolen and I Know It

Fakers, Fakers, every where,
And all these men did lie;
Fakers, Fakers, every where,
And one deserves a punch to the eye.

I have a singular hatred for individuals claiming military service when they have never served. I have a even greater loathing for those claiming to be prior Special Forces, or Tier-1 Operators when they never were. It's become a mission of mine, to an extent of course, to hunt these dick-magnets down, out them, and generally make their life hell.

I present to you Curtis Lynn

Curtis holding his Browning M1906 .30 cal prior to storming Omaha Beach.

Whilst playing a round of ArmA II online I came across this low-speed, high-drag individual on a TS3 server I frequent. Introductions were made, hello's exchanged, and current and prior service stories ensued. Shootin' the shit as it were, I asked what branch he'd served in and what his prior MOS was. He then stated he was former SF, a 18B to be exact, and was formerly 5th Group out of Campbell. Alright matey, AWESOME! Of course I'm AD Army and have more than a passing familiarity with ODA and Fort Campbell (that's where I attended Air-Assault School).

Unless that person is in uniform, on Post, and that Tab is visible on his left shoulder, this "I was/am Special Forces" typically throws up a Red Flag for me.

Luckily a friend of mine (we'll call him Gordo) was also in attendance that night. Gordo has spent a lot of time working closely with Group over the years, and Curtis' statement also peaked his interest. We began our questioning with simple topics such as - What Team were you on? What was your SFAS class number? What were your CO and 1SG's names? None of these were answered. All of these queries were meet with dead silence, trailing off, or supposed COMM problems. I even asked him where the Class-Six was. That's the liquor store for all you civies out there. Dead silence again. I'm sorry, but every Soldier on every military instillation knows exactly where the fuckin' booze store is at!

At this point I knew we had a faker, I just had to do a little digging.

I was provided with his address (I won't be disseminating it). That was more than enough to get the ball rolling. In my research I learned that he was currently living in Anchorage Alaska, is currently employed by Pitney Bowes, and spent a total of four years in the Army. First and foremost, anyone that has completed their entire SF training regimen is going to have a extension placed upon the current contract they hold. That means they usually serve 6 years or more on AD. This is due to the length of training they undergo such as; SPOC, Selection, the Q Course, DLI, etc. etc. Right then and there is a major hole in his story.

He should probably add Lying Asshole to his work history.

I submitted everything I had at the time to a buddy that has contacts in Special Forces. Below is a portion of that email.

Just talked to ******** and he can't find anything on this guy. He even checked a few places you wouldn't be able to get to. Hell, ******** was at 5th Group in '99 and that guy's name doesn't ring a bell. His first thought was this guy is BS simply by the way he dodged questions.

Whether Active, Reserve, Guard, Retired, or just plain out, this small elite community maintains connections and databases that I just don't have access to. If he wasn't able to find a mention of Curtis anywhere in the "SF Club", then he was never an alumni.

I'm still digging around and have filed a FoIA request for his Page 1 and 2 of his DD-214 to determine his actual previous duty status. I'll continue updating as more information trickles in.

I don't know what it's called; I only know the sound it makes when it lies!

Asskickery of the Week: GROM

 Polish GROM kill 20+ Taliban

The incident took place on the 26th of October. GROM Commandos on a combat patrol with the support of a air-assault unit separate from the Polish Task Force. After landing, the Poles were then attacked by numerically superior Taliban forces in a Complex Ambush.

The Taliban then surrounded the Poles. The exchange of fire lasted over three hours. During the battle, over 20 Taliban fighters were killed and 14 were wounded, among the dead was their commander. Two GROM Soldiers received minor wounds.

I don't know what it is about GROM. They're just fuckin' badasses.

Stop using your wheelchair as a crutch': Marine who lost legs in Afghanistan forced out of restaurant with his family after cruel taunts from rival football fans

The Moosehead Grill in Charlotte, N.C., played host to some staggering jackassery this past Sunday. Garrett Carnes, a Marine veteran who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan, stopped at the restaurant with his wife Courtney and other family members after attending the Cowboys-Panthers game. Things had grown ugly before Carnes, who was wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey, even got into the restaurant.

Garrett Carnes

Coburn said that when the group reached the front door, the fan was waiting for them.

“He was standing at the door, and he started harassing us because of the Cowboys jerseys,” Coburn said. He said the fan told Garrett Carnes, “Don’t use your wheelchair as a crutch.”

The fan, who did not want to give his name, gave a different account. “Moosehead is a Panthers’ bar,” he said. “When they came, wearing the Cowboys’ jerseys, I started up on them. I asked them if they were Cowboys fans who lived in North Carolina.”

“I’m not going to fight someone in a wheelchair,” the fan said. “I said to him, ‘I’m not fighting you. Get four of your boys, and I’ll fight them.’ According to multiple accounts of the incident, Carnes told the patron – and others who were ridiculing the group for being Cowboys’ fans – that he was a veteran and had lost his legs in Afghanistan.

Carnes, who is still undergoing treatment for his wounds at a Washington-area hospital, is trying to stay out of the dispute, Coburn said. Carnes’ mother, Rhonda, addressed a note to restaurant patrons on Facebook, saying, “Why didn’t any of you stand up for my son and daughter? And to think my son almost died for every single person in that bar, by defending all your freedom.”

Coping Mechanisms

Becks! The Budweiser of Germany. Why I drink it and so should you.

Over the years I've grown rather fond of this particular beer for some reason. Could be the time I spent in Germany, or it could be due to the fact that its sold by the truckload here at the post liquor store. Probably a combination thereof. 

1.) Becks compliments any meal. Kinda.

2.) For an import its not that expensive, nor is it cheap. Wait...

3.) It has a rather interesting flavor. It's not quite the stout of Guinness or the punch of a Russian Imperial. Can't quite place it. Defiantly unique.

4.) It can be purchased for around $14 a twelve pack. Excellent price for a import in my opinion. These prices aren't applicable to you nasty civilian types.

5.) Goes great at BBQ's, weddings, funerals, christenings, while playing video games, while watching your friends play video games, the second coming, Bar Mitzvahs, more weddings, bachelor parties, at strip joints (not the low-brow ones), birthdays, while at work, at the movies, and a myriad of other activities.

So start drinking right now! That's an order.

I don't have a drinking problem. The Class Six is open 24 hours a day here.

Positions I don't agree with, yet have no say in whatsoever

Overdue: Why It’s Time to End the U.S. Military’s Female Combat Ban

The military was the first major American institution to integrate African Americans. It’s now open to gay and lesbian soldiers. It’s time to let women serve in combat, writes Megan H. MacKenzie.

Today, 214,098 women serve in the U.S. military, representing 14.6 percent of total service members. Hundreds of female soldiers have received a Combat Action Badge, awarded for actively engaging with a hostile enemy. Two women, Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester and Specialist Monica Lin Brown, have been awarded Silver Stars—one of the highest military decorations awarded for valor in combat—for their service in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Yet the U.S. military, at least officially, still bans women from serving in direct combat positions. As irregular warfare has become increasingly common in the last few decades, the difference on the ground between front line and support roles is no longer clear. Numerous policy changes have also eroded the division between combat and noncombat positions. More and more military officials recognize the contributions made by female soldiers. Politicians, veterans, and military experts have begun actively lobbying Washington to drop the ban. And a 2011 survey conducted by ABC News and The Washington Post found that 73 percent of Americans support allowing women in combat. But Congress has not budged. 

Medal of Honor: Warfighter Review

 Something terrible this way comes! Unfortunately, that isn't a tag line for a movie.

The newest installment in the MoH franchise isn't very good. In fact it borders on the terrible. The not extravagantly outstanding, but enjoyable Medal of Honor 2010 had quite a lot of things going for it, namely the campaign and associated storyline. It was well told through the eyes of Tier-1 personnel conducting operations which were loosely based upon those during Operation Anaconda. The characters were engrossing and the protracted plot was interesting, it pulled the player into that world, it made you want to experience what was going to happen next.

The campaign in Warfighter is a little different. Really different. And really incoherent. It juts back and forth constantly, from the past to the present, back to the past, and even further into the past, and then right into a mission. Danger Close would like you to believe Warfighter is the story of a operator toeing the line between family and duty, but you learn so little about the man that the attempt rings hollow. The central character is a blank canvas, his back-story nonexistent, and any explanation as to why his wife is constantly pissed off is unknown. Selfish cow should hit up the Class-6 like the rest of the base wives. Of course I'm joking... perhaps.

"Authentic experience" indeed. Hey brah, your Magpul pop-up sights are on backwards.
While there are some intense and memorable moments here and there especially the driving segments, they pale in comparison to a sporadic AI, frequent bugs, and texture popping issues. True, the PC version looks like a BMW compared to its Yugo Console brethren, the visuals are still rather bland in places and texture streaming issues abound.

In today's market of competitive online gaming, my hopes remained optimistic as to the multi-player component. Those were however quickly dashed once I actually launched a session. Upon choosing a server I was greeted with a menu UI that was more awkward and confusing then it should have to be, and before I could even choose my kit, the game had me spawned right into the action. Okay, very well then. I'll just kill someone, die, and try again. I acquired my target, a bush-wookie (sniper), and fired around 15 rounds into him from around 25 meters. Was he killed? No, no he wasn't. He did however turn to face me and with a single round, ended my digital life.

Hmm... Lets try this again, shall we? Prior to spawning I quickly chose weapon customization - You won't fool me again Warfighter. Being that the map I was currently playing on was more of a CQB level, I thought it would behoove of me to pick iron sights or a optic more suited to the environment. Unfortunately however, I was stuck with the ACOG and its magnification level, the other options including iron sights weren't unlocked yet. Wait, I have to unlock iron sights? Shouldn't the unlock process be the other way around?

Take cover, the net-code is terrible!
Not even taking into consideration the questionable rank and progression system. There are serious problems with round registration as the bullets impact or don't impact a character. This is due to the fact that the hit-box in Warfighter is horrendous, and while BF3 suffers from the same ailment, it appears that Danger Close screwed something up... or they didn't care to improve upon it... I don't know. If you're hoping that Hardcore mode would make the game a little more interesting, increasing the lethality, and forcing people to think tactically, think again. All Danger Close has done is to remove certain HUD elements for said mode, negating one of the primary reasons gamers play on more difficult settings.


The original Worf-fighter is not pleased.
