maddogdelta: Great joke, Subby!

Now for a dose of reality...

Rangers a chosen from soldiers who have completed boot camp.  So, after a few months of boot camp, an 18-19 year old is then sent through 6 weeks (or so) of Ranger school, and is then dubbed a Ranger.

To become a SEAL, you go through boot camp, then through A school, so you know how to fix torpedoes, computers or radars.  Then, if selected, you go through BUDS, and upon completion of that training, you are considered a SEAL.

After being posted to your unit, you go through more training, and get several years worth of experience.  Then, if you are the top guy in your SEAL team, you might be good enough to apply for SEAL team 6.

Question, are NFL players competing in the pro bowl better players than college sophmores?  I would think so, and you are trying to compare the two with a little Navy hates Army bullshiat.

SEAL team 6 members are lousy at flying F-18s, subby. Does that make them "inferior"?

// CSB, I once scared the shiat out of a bunch of SEALS when I told them that if they were in a shipping lane when a big freighter came through, their Itty Bitty Ship would be crushed and they would be shark food.  The freighters aren't looking out for little people with glow sticks...And you can't karate chop a freighter...


Uhm, you are "ranger qualified" if you complete ranger school. You aren't a "ranger" until you get accepted into a ranger battalion. Just cause you made it through school don't mean you're out there doing that shiat.

As for the Marines, after the initial test with the best elements of Force Recon taken to comprise it, marsoc is now volunteer, and according to some buddies who have had the experience of serving in the same AO, not all that capable at SOC shiat.

SEALs have the benefit of over 50 years of training and experience, and a program that is tested and functional, with a lot of experience passed down.

CAG is growing into its own, but even that took a lot of work and T&E before they were up to speed.

However, it's difficult to compare a selective, covert unit like the SEALs with the Army's Rangers which is a battalion-sized specialized combat unit. Different mission profiles and ops. You might compare Rangers to MEUs in some way, since they're more specialized than general infantry (with the proviso that infantry platoons in a MEU are regular infantry that rotate into the slot with the MEU.

We have an Army Research Laboratory and a Navy Research Laboratory. There's also an Air Force Research Laboratory.

Anybody got a good reason for why? Why isn't there a Defense Research Laboratory? Put them all in the same house and that cuts costs. They would still accomplish the needs of the missions of each service.

/defense civilian
//that's not the only place we could consolidate


I dunno, why do the army, navy, marines, and Air Force all have their own separate special operations forces necessitating a separate command, JSOC, to combine and work out the pissing matches?

Why does the Navy and Marine Corps insist on each having their own aviators and fighter pilots?

Why do we have the army and the marines? Why a navy and a coast guard?

Here's my favorite: why do we have 26 different intelligence gathering agencies?

Full Disclosure:  my dad used to work for the AFRL.

I think you underestimate the amount of good inter-service cooperation that goes on when it comes to R&D.  It's not as if each service lives in its own world, and they recognize there's no budget for duplicative research, so they collaborate whenever it makes sense, or when one service has special equipment or expertise that the other's don't.  But they don't do jointness for jointness sake.  I remember my dad telling me about giving a presentation in Washington during a trade/info show, where the AFRL booth was right next to the Navy Labs booth.  Some congressional staffer came up and started going on about how both services were researching gas turbine maintenance, and how they should just consolidate and save money.  One of the uniformed Navy guys said that it wasn't a good idea.  The staffer asked why not, and the Navy guy said "because their gas turbine is meant to start a plane in two minutes, and our gas turbine is meant ...


Your father is absolutely right and your story presents the case well. Where our differences are truly different, then we must meet the fork in the road.

It is that area of overlap which must be faced, however. We can combine, on some level, numerous projects targetting the same area. We can also create sub-tasks for each specific need which the overarching project does not encompass.

Old Joke: The commander went to the assembled men and laid out the mission: "We need to precisely insert a team of commandos deep behind enemy lines. To avoid German radar we'll have to fly low and fast, no more than 200 feet off the deck. It will be dangerous and some of you may not survive the jump, so we need 20 men. Anyone who wishes to volunteer, take one step forward." A slim handful stepped forward, all Green Berets. The commander was disheartened until a grizzled sergeant whispered to him. "Parachutes will be provided!" he announced, and the rest stepped forward.

brantgoose: To the best of my knowledge, no Navy has ever managed to attack a target half way into a Continent. I could be wrong. Perhaps the Swiss Navy has done it.

Therefore, I will say that Army is definitely better than Navy, seeing as I am at an altitude of about 246 feet and a distance from the sea of 800 miles or so, even with the Saint Lawrence being naviagable as far as Quebec City in the Winter.

The Navy could get to me, but they'd probably have to walk at some point. Getting a naval ship big enough to fire a missile or rocket at me through the rivers and locks that separate me from the sea would be iffy. I'm not saying the Navy couldn't get the job done, because I am sure they could, but the army has a serious edge, having more personnel and resources such as armoured cars and tanks within a short distance of me.

There are many countries with no navies, but even the smallest countries have had something approximating to an army (Liechtenstein and the Vatican City have  tiny military forces, Andorra gave up their tiny army because they are adequately protected by Spain and France, which jointly govern  Andorra.

An army is your first line of domestic and foreign defence as it can deal with natural disasters, peace time emergencies, and armed insurrection or invasion.

A navy becomes important only if you have a coast or some internal coastline.

An air force is good, but eventually you have to land on water or ground unless you have those flying fortress thingies they have in SF movies. Air forces don't deal well with "hearts and minds" because it is hard to get a B-52 bomber into narrow streets where the hearts and minds that most need to be courted live.

In short, go army, preferably far away until you are needed.


The USMC's MEUs (part of the Navy ;) ) crossed 400 miles of desert when they did an amphibious landing and invaded Afghanistan. Your precious "land" won't save you.

This is the sort of genius thinking that got us the hot mess they call the Joint Strike Fighter.  Three guesses as to how well that's turned out, first two don't count.

/It also happened with the F-111

No. Not even close. JSF has unconscionable cost overruns and fat contractors sucking on government teat. That's a different story. Almost every other nation on the planet has ONE service doing ONE job and they do just fine. They're all "purple" in that regard. The only thing keeping our multitude of services alive is rivalry and a false belief in invented tradition. The real reason they can't cut costs is because a few admirals and generals refuse to compromise.

It really is inefficient but not for the reasons you see in the news.

One of the biggest national borders in the world, two gigantic coastlines just for the mainland, the largest and most complex economy in the world, gigantic amount of foreign commitments in almost every conceivable biosphere on the planet.

You're right, fark all that flexibility, let's turn our armed forces into a beige for Casual disregard's peace of mind, so he can soothe himself with the knowledge no possible redundancy will lower monetary efficiency.


So, by combining forces and pushing the saved money into beefing up the various specializations under one unified command structure, making sure that they were the best, you'd rather keep separate commands, the use of a giant pile of redundant and often incompatible systems, and the need to make your supply needlessly complex...

I'll politely disagree.  That fanboyism is supportive (by proxy) of preemptive and senseless wars and the siphon the military industrial complex has permanently attached to the federal budget to the tune of 24% (and that's the budgeted $).  If you look at a pie chart it literally is a "large part", how much do those sweet trillion dollars a year influence the politics in this country?  What would be the impact to the public education system if 1/2 of that was diverted to schools?  What would happen to taxes without it?  Where do you think the militarization of civilian police began and why does the public accept it?

"Hell, I can't think of too much that isn't. "

Indeed I can't think of too much that wouldn't be affected by a national change in attitude that says an obscenely massive standing army and arsenal is unnecessary and gross instead of something to beat our chests about.

Sgt Otter: Charlie Chingas: Forced Perspective: Charlie Chingas: Forced Perspective: maddogdelta: Charlie Chingas: ///And it's Marine Corps

Old Fark meme... one farker tried to claim that he was a "soldier in the marine core"... and was, ahem, called out on his bullshiat.

He then blamed the "typo" on the fact that his wife was supposedly typing the post on his behalf.  Good times.  Anybody have a link to that thread?

No shiat? HA! Would love to see that thread myself. I don't normally brag about being in the Corps, but when someone misspells it, even Pocket Ninja, I must say something. To all my brothers out there reading this: OOH RAH!

I found it.  Enjoy:

The comment that started it all is "
I'd go for that. Iraq can be contained by the Army. Let the Core finish up in Afghanistan," by a user who had claimed to be a marine.  Things go downhill from there.

Wow... I'm... wow...

I also talked to some shiat to him, and he said I should cut him a break, as a "fellow soldier."  A Marine.  Calling himself a 'soldier.'


That thread was all kinds of special. World's greatest internet soldier!

RoxtarRyan: We (the different services) rib each other, sure. Part of the fun, man. You can't take it too seriously though, and if you do, more than likely there are people who work with you who would rather not. That goes for the people who receive the ribbing, and the guy who actually believes the shiat he says. An asshole is an asshole, regardless of rank, duty station or service branch.

Pretty sure it's core.

Pretty sure you are wrong.   It is pronounced core, put it is spelled Corps

Pocket Ninja is so good, people get secondary bites off of his posts!


Thought I heard that fishing rod sound after I hit "Add Comment"...

jim32rr: RoxtarRyan: VibroCount: Never understood military dick comparisons. All I know is that since I left the Air Force, that action alone made the AF infinitely better.

You don't say much my friend, but when you do it's to the point, and I salute you for it.


Well, in the Marine Corps we didn't rib each other like you guys did in the Chair Force. Ribbed for your pleasure, right?
