When I entered the Navy, I had no thoughts of becoming a UDT or what were called Navy SEAL. When I was sent to Bainbridge Md for my radio school a few SEAL recruiters came and visited us there near the end of the school. It sparked an interest in me and I said I would be interested in their training. The SEAL school was supposed to start right after my class graduated from radio school. I got a real bad foot infection that the doctors at Bainbridge said was really bad and they ordered me to go to the hospital in Philadelphia. I was there almost a month. By the time I got back to school I was placed in another class to finish school. When I graduated the SEAL school had already started and if I were interested I would have had to wait for the next SEAL school to start and I would have had to extend my enlistment which at the time I did not want to do.

In response to your second paragraph, if we set the example for the rest of the world, what example did we set when we killed an unarmed man and shot his unarmed wife, all on another countries soverign soil? Now before you jump all over me, I am firmly for what UBL got. As a matter of fact, he should have got 2 to the head and 2 to the chest. I would love to buy the guys that carried this raid out several rounds of beer. But you liberals need to come up with a set of standards and stick to them. How is murdering an unarmed man ok and pouring some water on another man's face not ok? Can't have it both ways, you stud muffin you.

I do think that we as a peaceful nation need to set an example of what NOT to do in the name of WAR.
And yes, while some countries do terrible things to their prisoners/captives.
Do we need to be as nasty or like my Mom used to say "Be a big boy/girl and set a good example of what NOt to do."
