40 or so years from now, what would Iraq/Afgan veterans do in these type of situations?

/Just a hypothetical question.



They'll probably end up actually shooting and robbing the old guy.

rebelyell2006: While I was hiding in an archives today, I read a newspaper article from ten years ago about a guy who tried to mug a retired Texas Ranger. The ex-ranger apparently subdued and cuffed the moron in less than a minute (although why a 70-year-old retired Ranger was still carrying cuffs was not fully explained).


Because who doesn't like sudden kinky sex?

Avery614: FTA-Rutledge just doesn't understand the mentality of people like Malone. "What is wrong with them? I got drafted to go to Vietnam, I didn't have a choice. They got all the opportunities in the world now to make something of themselves but they don't want it," he said.

This is not a popular stance by any measure but this is as good an example as any as to why I think this country needs a conscription policy. If you want to live here and take advantage then you need to serve the country. Have objections to combat or a physical condition that makes you unfit for soldiering? That's fine, there are plenty of non-combat positions in the military. I think two years is plenty, 18-20 you belong to Uncle Sam. I think it could go a long way towards instilling discipline and responsibility in the younger generations, in addition to exposing them to many more life possibilities as a young adult. If you're wondering, yes I'm still young enough to be drafted, should they ever reinstate it. (30 is young enough I think...)


Conscription policy?

No.

The nation simply needs to raise and discipline their own farking kids.

The military doesn't need a bunch of farking spoiled brats, it's hard enough motivating volunteers, let alone a bunch of conscripted fat-back loser suburbanite / ghetto punks.

Besides, outside of Infantry organizations who can't afford to follow the political correct bullshiat policies espoused by our limp-wristed citizenry, the military is no longer a place of "discipline". Now it's about "equality" and "diversity" so the weak, stupid, and undisciplined can throw the race / gender card, and NOW they have the sexual orientation card to play as well.

You know what....fark it.

You're right.

Draft the motherfarkers. With all the bullshyte the military has to put up with due to political correctness, it doesn't really matter any more.

At least a draft will take some of the burden off the shoulders of those who actually volunteer to fight, as opposed to those who treat service as little more than welfare in uniform, doing as little as possible from the safety of a FOB or office.

mbillips: Depends on the guy. Me (Iraq 06-07), I'd probably tell him to fark off, because I'd rather die for something than of something. But that's some braggadocious BS; nobody knows what they'd do in that situation until they're IN that situation.


I am afraid that you may be on the wrong website, what with your "realistic points" and all.

/the correct answer is "I'ma stab him with my katana sword since swords are better than guns at close range"

FTA: When the gunman held the gun up Rutledge said, "Why you wanna rob me? Why don't you get a job? What I got, what I get, what I spend in this store, I earned it! I said if you gonna shoot me then shoot me. I got a wife and three kids that you'll have to take care of."
