Call of Duty: Morning Joe Edition

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwI4j3FM9U4

Watch the whole thing. Especially from the six minute mark to the end. I don't usually care about this stuff as we all know the hypocrisy of  the left. But this is a declaration. Joe Scarborough tells half the country, born and raised Americans mind you, that they can get out if they do not listen to what he says. Further, he states that you will be replaced by immigrants who will love the country, salute the flag, and (I guess) fight on his behalf against his fellow countrymen. What a traitor. Is there any doubt at all where this country is headed? One side is dug in and extremely confident in their position. Get hard, go zero, team up, and fall in. Good luck out there. Stay alert, stay alive. Trust your gut. Raptor 2, out.

Stunning and Brave

I have no words for this. I joined the infantry in the year 2000 and spent a career in the branch as a killer (with values and principles of course, but that is the point of the infantry). That was my job, to find, close with, and destroy the enemies of our nation. It was only infantryMEN back then. Even out of the men, we let the weak ones know they were shitbags who we didn't want around because they would get us killed. Just like the NBA, not everyone can do it. Further, we didn't have time to worry about cutting off our dicks or fucking our spotters. We were deploying every other year. 

There shouldn't be people in any branch who don't know what sex they are or who they should fuck. There shouldn't be any thought on that at all. Also, you should not join the military to "shatter stereotypes" because IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU!!! It is about that man to your left and right. It sounds cliché to those who haven't fought but it is absolutely true. I don't even think there should be woman in the military because they are always lowering the standards (not to mention sleeping around the unit). They are not fucking good enough! Our military can't really think that this nonsense instills fear out there in the real world...can they? It really is amazing how far we have fallen in such a short time period. I feel like a soldier without a unit right now. 

Alright, rant over. Anyway, some good news is that I am writing an angle firing class which will drop soon and a tactics discussion post. Until then, stay hard and look for the good, true, and beautiful. Raptor 2, out.

P.S. I am so happy that the ratio on this ad is almost all thumbs down. Some light in a dark world.

Vet Net

Read, heed, and prepare. There are a whole lot of combat veterans from the last twenty, thirty, forty years saying the same things. We recognize the instability, tribal fighting, fake elections, corrupt government, and inflation (just to name a few) because we saw it in the many countries we fought in. Stay safe out there and keep your principles. Stay in the light as much as you can. Focus on the good, true, and beautiful. As the great Lieutenant Dan once said, "Don't do anything stupid, like get yourself killed."  Raptor 2, out.

Combat Mindset: Experienced vs. Inexperienced

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJ0kb_Fldaw&t=189s

This is how the experienced react under fire. Life comes at you fast, be prepared. I love everything about this video. Watch the older gentleman react accordingly while his younger buddy, scared shitless, has no idea what to do. The driver knows something is up the whole time. This reminds me of an experienced NCO in Iraq reacting to fire and trying to get his cherry privates moving forward. I always tell people that the infantry is a skillset just like any other trade. Not just for shooting, moving, and communicating, but also being able to react and win under extremely high stress conditions. The truth is that it takes time to develop this mindset/skillset and be able to react accordingly under fire while possibly leading men. 

The way the driver turns around and drives at his ambushers is the perfect thing to do in this situation. It is similar to throwing grenades and assaulting through during a near ambush, or battle drill four. I love how he tells his buddy, "they are going to shoot" at 5:33. At the end, he grabs the weapon to go and defend while the other guy is still trying to figure out the phone. What a fucking badass. He is definitely not getting paid enough. The more experience one has in those situations the easier it is to do the right thing when any indecisiveness could kill you. You'll need to learn how to respond like this during the future unrest. Great job here. Raptor 2, out.
