National Defense Spending Gone Wild: How To Spend Over 680 Billion A Year And Still Not Secure The Borders

Posted in: National Security | Comments (0)

US National Defense Spending (Overt) vs. Covert

A man the age of your great grandfather told you, a man called Dwight Eisenhower, a former leader of the free world’s Armies vs. the Nazi’s, warned you during his farewell presidential address that the US military contractor establishment was going to take over, and even voiced concerns in regard to the arms manufacturers and supporters “circumventing the US government” on January 17th, 1961.
Now you won’t find an American more into the national defense, than myself possibly.

The overt DOD budget for 2010 is: 680,000,000,000 dollars and I don’t know how many cents.

Now, this does not include the money that is given to the Department of Homeland Security for the Border Patrol and other related efforts. It’s not the Border Patrol Officers that are the problems, it is the career politicians.

If you look at the surface of the goals of the US Military, one would easily draw three surface goals:

Be able to assist in securing our borders vs. invasion of any type.

Be able to conduct offensive and defensive conventional warfare operations.

Be able to conduct low intensity and counter terrorism operations around the world, quickly.

Right now, our southern border is completely open.

It is open, because they want it open, not because they can’t close it, it is open, because the powers that be, benefit from:

Moving their manufacturing operations south of the border, and importing billions of dollars of products into the USA for sale while paying the Mexicans 1/10th or so of what their laid off American counterparts made.

They make money from laundering the money from the cross border drug trade. One economist said that if we cut off the drug trade money profits, many banks would actually tip over and fail.

The corporate farms that are tended to by the abused Mexican laborers still need them. They apparently could not figure out how to transfer the American top soil south of the border, yet.

If we wanted to secure the southern border, we could.

If you had a budget of 680 Billion dollars, what could you do?

We use to ensure that the supply line for oil, from the Middle East to the USA, was open and rolling well.

The Worlds Nuclear Policemen

Now, we are the world’s full blown policeman.

We are now also in charge of trying to police the worlds loose or almost loose nukes, and fence with (the sport), daily the madmen that want their own nuclear bombs, not for some type of deterrent, but to apply them in our cities.

This topic is covered within the entry Slumdog Nukes.

The Bayonet Lobby – Ex Military Personnel Running for Office

The Bayonet Lobby At Work

 

I was talking to a individual about running against a professional career politician, and he asked me, “well, uhhhh, what lobby do you have backing you?, in which, I told him, I guess I would start with The Bayonet Lobby.

There are different elements within The Bayonet Lobby that is backing myself, a non-politician vs. a career professional Washington DC primed and fluffed creampuff.

Armed Services Veterans are a strong core within the Bayonet Lobby.

Labeled by the current federal government as potential terrorists, which is repayment for the lifelong physical injuries they many times carry to the grave.

Here is the most noteworthy thank you that the federal government has recently given our veterans for their sacrifices:
“The return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.

Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” it says. “DHS/I&A is concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”

Every time a read the above entry, I am forced to take a break for a moment and relax.

The Korean era veterans that froze their asses off, for years, without full support of the US government vs. the Chinese, with almost 129,000 dead and wounded, and this is the thanks they get. Kids these days don’t know squat about the entire Korean “conflict.”

The Vietnam era veterans that were knee deep in Agent Orange, in triple canopy jungle, took over 214,000 dead, wounded and MIA, and this is the pat on the back that they get. They got spit on at the airport, they got left behind, they got screwed over, again, and again, and again. When will it stop?
They are a lot grayer now, but wiser, and completely sickened by the fiscal sacking of the US government by the feds.
The Desert Shield/Storm era soldiers, that are still dying of the shots they got, the nerve agents they were exposed to, and the lethal tank munitions radioactive dust, that are bedridden mid to late forty year olds, this is your thanks.
We can’t even count the dead from that Desert Shield/Storm, because they are still dying from the effects from the shots.
The veterans of the Iraq, Afghanistan and Global War on Everyone That Wants to Kill Americans, with an admitted 55,000 dead and wounded at this time of this work.
I was watching an interview of a female soldier that had her entire shoulder knocked off by a RPG explosion in her Humvee, and this is the best the federal government can do, consider her a possible terrorist.
Her main concern: being someday able to have a baby, and how she could ever hold it with only one arm.

We have National Guardsmen that are doing 2-3 tours in “the sandbox,” and then coming back the USA to find out that they are now on a no gun list due to taking a class to prevent PTSD. They put their life on the line, like our other service veterans, and wala, no guns.

No guns, means no freedom. Many also get the bonus of being laterally tacked onto the no fly list, with the “lists” being interchangeable.

There is one main core item that we all share, the defense of the Constitution. It was in the oath that we took:

I, ____________, do solemnly swear, or affirm, that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…

So help me God…

Not so help me Darwin…

No so help me Muhammad…

No so help me unless I give up…

No so help me unless the going gets rough then I will quit…

So help me GOD…

We weren’t out defending globalism…

We didn’t sign up to defend seventeen new federal departments set up at the federal level to regulate the states…

We did not go out to defend the country so that the 38 unelected Czars could dictate national policy…

We supported and defended the Constitution,
the soul of America…

Armed Services Veterans are not the bad guys, but they are being portrayed as such. The professional politicians, controlled by their handlers, are, and they are drawing their battle lines right now.

They are scared as hell of the veterans.

What they are really messing their pants over is, “Generation Kill,” the nickname of the last generation of combat veterans from Iraq/Iran, the focus of their new homeland security warnings.

Their reports many times have sideline notes that the new veterans know how insurgency works, how roadside bombs work (beating heavy armor), along with the operation of modern weapons systems.

The problem is, actually, is that there are hundreds of thousands of armed services veterans that know that THE USA WAS FOUNDED AS A REPUBLIC UNDER GOD.

America was not born as a socialist country, a green movement experiment, communist manifesto reading while sipping a mocha, or a American Nazi style fascist resort, it WAS A REPUBLIC.

Sometimes, I wonder if they quit teaching history completely, or switched to history according to the wanted outcomes of some other agenda.

How long is it going to take for 85% of the people or more (hey, 15% would not fight anything unless they had been without food or a few days), to wakeup?

Don’t they see that we are being taken down the same path as the Argentina Economic Collapse as orchestrated by Anglo bankers, the same ones that just got billions of your tax dollars? They are using the exact same playbook.

Run Argentina Economic Collapse on YOUTUBE and watch it, you can see the future of America, right there.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMLVMEQmhTQ is the link to the first of eight or so parts if you have the time in your busy schedule.

The Firearm Owners…
…are part of the Bayonet Lobby. Many times also veterans, are some of those also noted as potential terrorists, fall into the Bayonet Lobby.

Along with their Veteran siblings, they also have been labeled as potential threats to the federal government, a plethora of different anti-firearm bills, regulations and treaties in the works to begin wearing them down.

The firearm owners, (and the veterans), are very Pro-Second Amendment People.

The veterans have seen what happens in person when only the bad guys have firearms, and the firearm owners know that if the citizens are disarmed, all of the other amendments go out the window with it quite quickly.

What the The Firearm Owners are: Law abiding, “quiet” gun owners that buy a gun, sit it next to the nightstand in a lockbox and go about life. They literally help to prevent crime due to the criminals wondering if the person in the house they are considering hitting armed.

Many times law enforcement centered if not law enforcement officers. Cops, Sheriffs and other LEO’s are not terrorists, and take persons rights so seriously, they put their lives on the line each day to stem the efforts of the US’s hundreds of divisions (10k each), of habitual criminals that would rob, rape and pillage without the cops on the beat each day.
They are hunters that have hunted for generations upon generations in the great outdoors.

They are Target, Tactical and Olympic Shooters who continually improve their shooting skills at area ranges.

These are not terrorists!!!

They did not fly the jets into the high rises, and yet, again, they are put on a cross section of warning lists as a trait of a potential risk.

If it was not for the private ownership of guns, I don’t know what would take out the core of America first, the gangs, a corrupt federal government (if you can imagine that), or other “big fish” that wanted to swallow the country up.

THOSE RADICAL CONSTITUIONALISTS
Those American citizens that think that the federal government of the USA should adhere to the outline of the federal government as provided by the Constitution, that aren’t veterans or gun owners were kind of lump summed as CONSTITUTIONALISTS.

I can recall a official government report that noted that if a person had RON PAUL or Constitution based bumper stickers, they were of course, more likely to be a threat to the government as a whole.

Why?

Why would the federal government vilify the Veterans (of which I am), the gun owners (of which I am), and all of the people that believe that the God Given rights within the Constitution is what the federal government should be held to instead of a globalist, elite controlled fiscal quagmire?

It’s because they are afraid of us.

Boooo. They jumped, but you couldn’t see it.

Is it because your dad use to teach insurgents all over the world, and now he has no job, his retirement account cleaned out by the fiscal downfall of the USA, and now his grandkids are in elementary school with a government transitioning to something other than a Republic?

Maybe…

Is it because they are taking us towards a British style of Orwellian CCTV system cameras everywhere (the British are even having people put remotely monitored cameras in their homes for new parents), electronic eavesdropping and computerized monitoring of all subjects, I mean, citizens, with them doing a test city in Chicago in regard to the above, and know the gun owners would never go for that?

Possibly…

Is it because the “old” constitutionalists, are some of the last Americans that have learned classical American history, and are the last “old guard” to what was sacred in regard to the governance of America?

Likely…

This is what I hold to be true:

GUN OWNING CONSTITUTIONALIST CITIZENS MADE THIS COUNTRY…
LITERRALLY FROM SCRATCH…
YES THEY WERE HARDCORE CONSTITUIONALISTS…
YES, THEY BECAME VETERANS…
YES, THEY CONTINUED TO BE GUN OWNERS…
THAT BELIEVED STRONGLY IN THE 2ND AMENDMENT…
100% OF THE ABOVE, IS WHAT I AM…

Veterans, gun owners, law enforcement, 2nd Amendment people and constitutionalists are always welcome at my BBQ’s.

How to fix the recent wrongs:
Apparently Homeland Security needs to be completely “re-structured.” Our borders, if they were any more open, would just have mannequins at the southern border. I don’t think that they can say terrorist anymore either.

I really enjoy seeing them patting down 85 year old grandmothers and rifling thru their 21 year old purse. If it wasn’t for those 15 grandmothers that flew those jets on 9/11, the country would be a better place to live.

Veterans, Gun Owners, Law Enforcement and Constitutionalists should never be singled out for future harassment by the federal government. If there were two armed veterans on each of the planes involved in 9/11, maybe 4,000 more Americans would be alive now.

Ever think of that?

Veterans, Gun Owners and local Law Enforcement Officers are actually what stands between the American citizens and the jackboot of the proposed and growing, 680k person private police force, “as strong, well trained and armed as the US Military” that is to be directed by the executive office of the President.

What, you didn’t know about that?

You had better…

The Pitchfork Lobby : MAD as hell American citizens

Posted in: Mad Americans | Comments (0)

THE PITCHFORK LOBBY

The Pitchfork Lobby…

Much like the entire Bayonet Lobby backing candidates like myself across the USA, you have The

Pitchfork Lobby kicking in, that is about 200x larger than the entire Bayonet Lobby crowd.
The Pitchfork Lobby are those that have been or face extreme economical hardship due to the intentional crashing of the US economy.

They are the ones that got fired, laid off sounding so, well, soft, that have no jobs for going on a year to a year and a half now. The harder that they have been hit, the madder, and more determined they are.

They are the ones where BOTH parents have been laid off, the three kids wondering if they are going to be able to be able to get supplies for school, much less any money for anything else.

They are the ones that lost almost their entire retirement savings, and there is not enough time to build a “new life savings” up, and will never be able to retire now.

They are the ones that took a job paying 30% less than the job that they got laid off from, that are now severely underemployed, just trying to fiscally hold on to the fiscally sinking USS America.

They are the taxpayers that have just been strapped with a 27 trillion dollar bill by the Federal Reserve Bank and the Federal Government.

Hundreds, and hundreds and hundreds of thousands turned into millions of families in the USA that have been destroyed by the “downturn in the economy.”

It makes me want to vomit with all of the examples of newly, never homeless before, homeless families, living in cars, shelters and even tents.

American families, who one year ago, had a place to live and two working parents, now with no working parents, living in a freaking tent.

Sickening…

Many are so mad, that they want more than just a tea party…

Here is a great video from a guy from North Carolina watching the national TV networks during the fall… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4k4xPUZRdC0

 

The Pitchfork Lobby Tends To Hate

Career Professional Politicians: If you thought it was hard to walk the streets before the fall as a recognizable professional politician, try it in a few months.

Government Corruption and Waste: The Federal Reserve Bank refusing to tell the Federal Government where 500 billion went to, and not caring about it at all.

The Jobs Being Sent to Mexico and Overseas: Creation of NAFTA and Free Trade China sucked out production lines right out of the USA.

The Hail Mary

The pitchfork lobby has to use what cash it does have left, running on empty, you have to put up a Hail Mary pass, a political pass, verses a football pass.

You have to have normal people run for office, and you have to do it now. Not in the next election, or the one after that, you have to do it right now.

You have to have them run for city offices…

You have to have them run for school boards…

You have to have them run for county positions…

You have to have them run for state positions…

And you have to even send them to the integrity furnace that is the Federal Government Positions, and you have to help them stay clean, stay focused, and do what is right for the people vs. the corporations.

You have to find a presidential candidate outside the left/right control puppet show, and have them win, and then, begin to quickly unscrew the legislation from specifically the early 90’s, to now that has de-industrialized America.

Your freedom and way of life depend upon it…

No big deal, right?… Its just your kids future

Calling All Non Politicans … Mere Citizens Running for Office

Posted in: Non Politicians | Comments (0)

 

Are you a non-politician? America and leading state elected positions need you now. They need you to run for office, now.

Do you get a stick stomach when you hear professional federal politicians speak with fork in tongue?
Ways to know that you are a non-politician:

You may not be very politically correct.

You care about how the decisions made will affect the middle and lower class.

You are not invited to the “secret society” style meetings within circles of the truly elite federal politicians.

When speaking in public in regard to the current system, you may get a bit “fired up,” with it being hard not to let some old school curse words fly.

The maid in your home is you.

You tend to tell the truth, even when it hurts somebody’s feelings at times.

Your teleprompter is a stack of 30 index cards that were filled out at the kitchen table while your kids were doing homework.

Members of your security team are three gassy bassets, a shotgun in the closet and a baseball bat next to the bed.

If you are still a Republican or Democratic party, when you show up at a meeting of their poo-bahs, they note that they cannot support you because you haven’t done your time yet (as one of their assistants), for you to run for office.

In regard to legislation, you look past the effect of the next month, looking into the decades in regard to how it will affect your constituents.

Most of all you haven’t been bought and paid for.

We need you now to run for office across America.

School boards, city councils, county commissions, state government and even the furnace of corruption that are the 545 people that run the federal government.

Quick who is the President of Chad? Who gives a flying spit wad?

What they will try to do, is publicly quiz you on abstract crap to get you to not run for public office. Hold the course, and don’t give up.
The main thing, is that we have a citizen in that role, replacing a professional career politician. What we are doing, is un-doing oh, let’s start around 1913, the year of the hijacking of our federal government, so, 100 years of professional politicians minding the store.

You know by now that I hate complainers that won’t do anything other than complain, so, here are some ideas:

Read the web pages for the election offices in a combination of counties in your state along with your main states election office. Many times they will have ½ of the information you need, the other half on another web page within your state.

Not knowing the rules to the board game only hurts NONPOLS and helps the professional hacks.

Put together a team of NONPOLS to run for office across all levels of government and why the necessity and the time is here for it.

Read your competitors books, watch their videos and know their voting record.

Know their answer to upcoming debate questions before they do. Did they give illegal aliens the key to your states front door, with violent Mexican gangs now competing for control of your city vs. area law enforcement?

Wargame the upcoming debates.

Yes, many of them will be a setup with your competitor being leaked the questions that are going to be asked by area hacks, but you have to be as ready as you can. Have your team have quiz each other and have a good, to the point answer for the fastball questions that may be thrown at you.

The professional politicians will shake your hand with one hand and cut your throat with the other. You have to realize, that they don’t have real jobs, and that you are threatening their “daily job” by running for office.

Get on YOUTUBE.

Just sit down, and take your list on what is important in regard to what you are going to cover, and type out your main notes, and just sit and talk about it, or have a friend interview you in regard to the overall topic. Post the information to YOUTUBE, along with typewritten text from the overall discussion, and post it to YOUTUBE.

The 2nd Amendment: Firearm Ownership Rights

Posted in: Guns and Firearms | Comments (0)

American AR-15 Rifle

The American AR-15 Rifle

by Tyler Benjamin Dillon

The Necessities of Black Rifle Ownership
Battle rifles are what brought down the redcoats, and helped free the Republic, not negotiations, or handguns, or swords, it was rifles, what would later become called, main battle rifles as the Revolution waged on.

It was not handguns, or thousands of squirrel guns (small caliber), hatchets or other weapons, it was the production, issue and use of rifles that could hang with what the redcoats were utilizing.

The second amendment was put in place by our forefathers to ensure that the free people of the United States were able to form, to protect ourselves against armies, foreign and domestic.

Many times, people will say that ownership of hunting style rifles is enough for citizens, not main battle rifles, or black rifles, or assault rifles are they are called these days.
To understand why the citizens do need them, all that you have to do is look at the history of conflict for a moment, both at the onset of the modern assault rifle, which was the German MP43, which the Russians later copied and simplified production of it with the AK-47.

1939: The Imperial Japanese Army
Attacks Washington State
The attack of the USA, a landing by multiple Japanese divisions was discussed by the Japanese leadership during the planning of their expansion into China, the south pacific and the attack of America.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States.

There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass”

This was credited and disputed to have been said by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.
Then, US citizens had the same rifles available that the average Japanese infantryman had. The Japanese did not have enough infantrymen and related heavy support to be able to pull something like that off, so they concentrated on unarmed China.

In China, they killed an estimated 6 million unarmed citizens. Six million armed Chinese citizens would have driven the Japanese army into the sea.

1991 Yugoslavian War
As the country fell to pieces, and ethnic groups began to kill each other, it was the death squads, paramilitary police and military that had the assault firearms.
That is how you had 100,000 (estimated), dead citizens that were killed, of which, thousands of course, were children.

If the heads of households had been able to make a stand vs. the death squads knock at the door, there would have been many more surviving children and many more dead psychotic death squad members.

June 1994 – 1 Million Citizens Murdered
Three months of killing in Rawanda left 1 MILLION Tutsis with the culprits being mostly Hutus.

Guess which side had assault rifles and which side didn’t. Eight Hundred Thousand dead in three months, if only they had been able to defend themselves.
There is a video of a huge river, absolutely huge, completely filled with dead, bloating bodies, which, I will never forget.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WwEWftjpMs is a pretty good video collage of what happens to unarmed citizens vs. mass murders.

AMERICAN BLACK RIFLES AT WORK

What you miss though, is what they are, the black rifles, are doing each day across America.

The police cannot protect you, just think of them as armed crime reporters essentially.

This is why, if you are killed, raped, robbed or otherwise hurt, you cannot sue the police department for failure to protect, for they are not liable for your safety, (you are).

KEEPING CRIMINALS IN CHECK: Daily Victories for Americans

Common Criminals:
Black rifles serve as a great deterrent to crime. They help protect your home vs. the common, housebreaking, residential robbing criminal 24/7.
Criminals don’t want to fall into the sights of a firearm, much less, a citizen with an assault rifle with a 30 round magazine.

Organized Gangs:
As existing gangs burglarize, rob and otherwise victimize the overall American families, organized gangs hit homes across the land, burglarizing and killing citizens by the thousands per year across the country.

A citizen that is trained and armed with an assault rifle can put enough rounds towards (and into), teams now of criminals and other gang members that are trying to rob, rape, burglarize and kill them.

The bad guys then choke immediately on biting off to much of a trained and armed citizen at once.

Highway Robbers:
Believe it or not, when you are out and about, out shopping, doing your day to day chores, buying some milk and bread at the store, etc, you are being sized up.
You are being evaluated by felons as how hard of a target that you are.
They need money for meth and crack…
They don’t have jobs…

They usually have been slapped on the wrist before for very serious charges…

They don’t care what they have to do to you to get what they want, cash and whatever they can take and trade for drugs…

They usually have a cross section of weapons. Bats, knives, handguns, shanks (improvised knives) and other weapons…

They don’t care what they have to do to you to get what they want.

You, when alone, or with your children/spouse, have to have an odds evener when facing organized crime in the USA. High quality black rifles, or assault rifles, are that edge to stay alive in these strange days.

I didn’t create the environment that we live in now, but I am doing all that I can do to change it, as quickly as possible.

KEEPING THE GOVERNMENT IN CHECK

IF our government is ever compromised or otherwise turned over to the control of foreign entities, Assault rifles help keep a rogue or compromised federal government in check.
This would then, prevent the federal government from being able to disarm the people, en masse, quickly, through gun confiscations. They would have to then, focus on enacting gradual encroaching laws for ownership and retention, until, like the ants eating the elephant, until it, the armed public, is gone.

When the armed public is gone, we are, gone as a free nation, and then things go quickly downhill from there.

I recommend:

Each state re-confirm its dedication to the Second Amendment and the citizens right to bear arms.

Each state should encourage not only Assault Rifle ownership, but encourage the production of Assault Rifles within your state, conforming solely to your states laws concerning such.

Each state have concealed carry permits for citizens.

Each state note within its confirmation of the 2nd Amendment, that no other agreement, law, treaty or other arrangement to infringe upon any of these rights.

Each state note that “Anyone attempting to infringe upon the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans shall be committing High Treason vs. The People,” and nothing less.

Your 13 Year Old Sniper : Entrainment Combat Training for Teens

Posted in: Entrainment | Comments (0)

Sniper Training

Your 13 Year Old With 128 x 600 plus Meter Kills

Utilization of Military Computer Sims to Condition,

Train and Recruit Your Children

Those of you that were lucky enough, or unlucky enough to be around in 1984, there was a movie called The Last Starfighter, in which, the premise was that a video game measured how good of a space fighter pilot that you could be, and drafted a few of the best players into service.

Now there is a entire generation of ultra realistic, current state of the world style, huge military simulator programs running on servers around the world, and millions, upon millions, of users, many of them being our teens in the USA.

Now there are around 10 or so ultra realistic military simulators that are about 100x better than what we even had as simulators while on active duty a ten years ago, right now, that anyone can play.

One of them is an extension of a game, called Battlefield 3, with the ultra realistic programmers making an expansion package called Project Reality.
It teaches so much in regard to infantry tactics, fighting vs. both insurgents and heavily armored modern military forces, it is indeed a simulator and not a game by any standard.

Just go to youtube and run Project Reality Battlefield 2 and you will be astonished. Here is a link to listen to two fifteen year olds working as a sniper team, making quite difficult shots at 650 meters plus.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atIa6UnYmD0

Q?: Well, big freakin deal. So what, some programmers made a ultra realistic game..who cares? What is on tv honey?

A: Well, actually, some of those games are used for recruiting your kids into the system.

Variants of some of those computer programs are used to train active duty soldiers with they are so advanced.

Battlefield 2, in 2005, had sold 6 million copies, and when you take into account likely another 2-3million sold through 2010, and the hacked versions, you have a ton of users.

ARMA, had 4 million registered users in 2004.

The Three Sides of the Coin

Did you invite this vampire in?

We have the US Military recruiting and entraining (part entertainment, part trianing), our kids via the huge gaming systems.

What do you think about that?

Do you think that your tax money should be going to see how well a 13 year old can perform as a sniper, or a medic, or a tank driver?

From the millions and millions of users, we now have the US Military using that information to recruit young users via the gaming system along with MILLIONS OF AMERICANS that have practiced for hundreds and hundreds of hours light, medium and heavy military operations.

When in the late 70’s you had a 13 year old playing COMBAT on the ATARI 2600 vs another kid, you now have your 13 year old with two years of experience under their belt, being an accomplished sniper, with 892 confirmed kills vs. other human players in a playing environment that is as close to realty as it can possibly be.

More than half of shooting is having the right “eye” for what is going on around you, and picking your shots and doing all that you can to keep from being killed.

These programs are doing that, every single hour, of every single day.

They develop a long range shooters eye very, very well.

Now given, the 13 year old of 1973 was in better shape from being outside so much more of the time vs. now, but the teens these days that have used these programs for hundreds upon thousands of hours, has gone through hundreds of shootouts with other humans, something mentally you can’t simulate without either this style of programs or running through military style training.

Sometimes when you can “look over” a shootout of sorts with 64 others involved in the same city, and you can hear the young voices via the internet, one video on youtube with a 9 year old,
…you know that anyone that would actually invade us would be royally screwed if these millions upon millions of teens and young adults armed themselves with the real weapons.
Essentially, we have these millions of sim vets with no perception of true death, pain and dismemberment that is present in war.

Death and Dismemberment
The third side of the coin is, the actual side of the coin, you guessed it, is suffering, agony and death on the battlefield.

This is a topic that none of these programs never really proper cover.

They don’t simulate what it is like to be wounded, or have an eye knocked out due to shrapnel, or have your right shoulder knocked off by a rocket propelled grenade that hit you in your humvee.

You don’t see your buddy missing his left arm at the elbow with a rope around his bicep, and the left leg missing at the mid thigh, part of his face ripped off by the flooring of the humvee that was blown 5 feet in the air by the IED.

You don’t hear the cries for home.

Your character does not just lay there gurgling in its own blood for seemingly forever before dying.

Your character does not get burned until you can’t figure out if it was a male or a female and then stuck in a burn ward at Walter Reed while even other soldiers have trouble looking at you.

I think that this function needs to be built into these new, ultra realistic, actually training and evaluation, “games” that are no game at all.
