All the newly designated Naval and Marine Corps pilots report to SERE (Survive, Evade, RESIST, Escape) soon after getting winged. I'm not military, but live in a navy town and have been photographing the winging ceremonies for about 20 years. A really great shoot. Have heard some about sere. Doesn't sound even a little bit fun.
I also agreed that torture interrogation was neccesary.
My point was don't publize it.
Apparently you guys like FOX and CNN to be your action thriller channel.
I think you do what you need to do and don't tell anybody. Out of sight out mind.
Same position I have on guns...keep it out of sight out of mind. In other words don't send Christmas Cards with children holding assault rifles
Menmon, so you are good with our government conducting covert and clandestine operations which may or may not be illegal as long as we don’t know about them. Wow!!!! Doesn’t this go against your progressive stance on almost everything?
But to answer your question, if it is truly about national security, I want them doing what they need to do. Problem with this is that I don't trust this anymore....it is apparent that war of some level is desired whether it is about our security or not.
I would much rather be a country without as many enemies...but the way we play the game, we make enemies that we shouldn't have.
Stop policing the world...quit spending trillions on defense and providing foriegn aid to people who hate us, but if to keep me and you truly safe means taking a pliers to their nuts I'm fine with it.
While I agree we could be doing a much more efficient job at policing the world, if we don't do it at all, someone will. Someone always has, that is the nature of the world.
Someone will always be attempting to run the show. There might be lull's in that fight, but you can bet it's always raging in someone's head.
