Fark, he was *proud*? Of that farkin' shiatfight? A goddamned SEAL? Should be court martialled just for that.
 
2021-01-13 3:45:32 AM  
Depending on how he is charged he could lose his military pension. His business trained police and security, when he gets out of jail he will be training proud boys.

Proud of failing to achieve any objectives.  Figures.

Him on the 6th: Woo hoo! It's an insurrection I've BREACHED the capitol! Let's topple the Dems!

[People died and stole shiat and it's a big deal]

Him today: Um...yeah...I was there...but only outside...it wasn't as bad as it looked...Mommy!

shiatstain. I hope they can court martial his narrow ass.

Toss him a felony charge and he'll be training them with sticks and rocks.

Yet another loud mouth bully who when they get punched in the face (by the law) turn into the biggest crybabies.

Just like that other idiot who was hanging from the balcony who after he got caught asked for forgiveness.

Kiss that military pension goodbye arsehole.

There's another city in Ohio named after a foreign capital that I was unaware of.  I wonder how they mispronounce it.
 
2021-01-13 7:24:45 AM  
Did he post that before or after yesterday's Joint Chiefs of Staff statement condemning the action?  Either way, he's probably screwed.

They are many more inside the military and as we've see the police, fire departments, secret service and Congress as well.

Ironically, these people are the "Deep State" that they grew to fear.
 
2021-01-13 7:27:04 AM  
How many were there (inside) anyway?  I'm not doubting him specifically, but getting the sense this is going to be the Short Bus Woodstock, with a million people claiming "I stormed the Capitol" in 15 years.
 
2021-01-13 7:29:09 AM  
And this is why you give these folks the "hero" tag bullshiat by default. The military is full of just as much shiat as people on the outside.

Yes and they want to round up and kill as many "commie libs" as they can. At least in their fantasies about what we'd do, we have them the courtesy of FEMA camps.

That's what we do here. But unlike Indiana, we also use some Native American names for our cities and rivers. (Cuyahoga, Chillicothe, Tuscarawas, etc.) The important thing is that everything be completely unpronounceable for outsiders. We are a state of soybeans, football, and shibboleths.

You also have this which is outstanding place to spend a weekend. I was fortunate enough see Sonic Youth and The Flaming Lips there.

Do it. Let the others know, hey. You can, and probably will end up like this.

Oh I know.  I grew up in Dayton.

Had relatives in Versailles (ver-SALES) and Russia (RU-she) and New Bremen (BREE-mun).

Yes, yes you are. And you're going to spend the rest of your life in Federal prison because you were a terrorist and a traitor if the military doesn't decide to hang you for sedition. Say goodbye to your pension and your veteran's benefits.

Not forgiveness. He doesn't think he did anything wrong. He's asking for clemency. He wants it to all go away with him not getting any consequences.

Recalled, dishonorably discharged, then sent to Leavenworth for a decade of making big rocks into little rocks.

Wow. Just wow.
Sleepy Joe isn't even president yet (which he stole) and already the witch-hunts of patriots have begun. These kangaroo courts of God-fearing heroes, to bring down the republic (which they hate) is going full steam ahead, led by traitors who hate freedom. The true people of this republic won't take this sitting down, or cower like "those" people that don't deserve this country.
You can't shut up the voice of truth the way you removed religion from everything.
You will be the ones running to the hills and wishing you could go back to your countries pretty soon.

SOF have a huge problem right now and need to be radically reduced in size and mission scope.

Between the war crimes and domestic terrorism, it's possible that "let's accept LOADS of new operators, regardless of mental stability" is sowing the seeds of a problem we'll reap for years to come.

Immediately cut half the Teams, RIF 25% of Ranger Regt, and assign the least stable who are now at loose ends to EOD in Tonopah.  Whoever survives gets counseling.  And comb through the various SOF-lite and "tac teams" spread across the various arms and branches of government and start cutting.

Sure, it's cool to say you've got a "crisis team" at your beck and call, but long term we're literally militarizing and training the WORST farking people.

A SEAL was proud of an uncoordinated mob?

Why was he discharged? Because there has to be more to this.

The Teams are rotten to the core.  I think you should instead be surprised only one has been ID'd so far.

said he wanted to make lawmakers "think twice about what they're doing" and to be left "shaking in their shoes."

so you want them to be afraid, 'terrorized' if you will

He's 45 years old, and the article says he's retired and his last reserve service was 4 years ago.  Best guess he did his 20 and took the pension.

That force changed, and not in a good way, during the war on terror.  They had to expand it, which necessarily dilutes the quality, and those guys were deployed everywhere and for a long time. Institutional burnout is a thing.  If your special forces become your primary combatants, the edge gets dull.  There was a good article about this a couple years ago, noting that in most place the US was fighting, it was relying on longer term deployments of what should have been rapid reaction forces.  Nothing good comes from that.

Yep, and commands were tasking SOF with way more jobs than ever.  Short term gain with long term cost, and as ever people only start to recognize it too late.

And that culture is now institutionalized.  Gonna have to be some pretty radical restructuring and limits placed on commanders and deployments or we're going to have way more of this.

The SEALS haven't been an elite group for a long time. Thanks McCristol. The over-reliance on "special" units led to the rapid expansion of those units and not washing out losers. See also: Eddie Gallagher.

Keep crying for clemency...they are going to make an example out of you and your mob.

I'd really like all these retired military tough guys to get called back into service, specifically to face trial - take their pension, let them face a lifetime in a military prison (assuming they don't get the firing squad).

There have been numerous articles, including from those in SOF leadership talking about this.  The expanded role, required expanded personnel, lead to quantity over quality, etc.

Essentially if EVERYONE is "Special", no one is.....but with guns.
