A 'touchy-feely' CNN reporter, while interviewing a Special Forces sniper asked,

"What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist.?"

The Green Beret shrugged and replied,

"Recoil."


Now I recall the Recon Marines ragged, filthy cammie shirted young men in green paint who move silent like the fog with deadly purpose in their eyes. Swift, Silent, Deadly. I smile.

3% PEROXIDE USES (The Safer Alternative to Bleach)

Here are some benefits of that plain little ole bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store.

Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day.

If youre having a terrible toothache and cant get to the dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. This will lessen the pain immensely.

Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes then blow your nose into a tissue.

Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.

Take one capful and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes.

Let your toothbrush soak in a cup of peroxide to kill germs.

Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

You can add a cup of peroxide to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

Clean your counters & table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.

There is No Freedom Without Responsibility

Across the globe... it seems the desire of freedom and understanding the responsibility required to keep it embody the pillar around which all true citizens and good soldiers stand arm in arm. From this formation they gather strength to hold fast while their enemies try to chip away from outside and also from the inside. Those who love freedom and understand what is required to win and keep it include:

  • The New Iraq volunteer Army. These warriors are stepping forward and are taking responsibility to rid their lands of the cowardly forces that infest it.
  • The Himalayan nation of Nepal whose Royal Nepal Army is engaged in combat (with the help of our advisors) to fight Beijing-backed Chicom Maoist Communist forces.
  • New Central and South America freedom fighters (being formed as we write this) to fight against the influence of the newly formed Bolivian-Cuban-Venezuelan Marxist pact (which rivals anything the Cold War brought to the various backwaters of the world in the 1950's and 60's).

As you can see, the dark forces mobilizing against us are strong. It is "suck it up time" for the guy who understands responsibility and freedom have a symbiotic relationship.

We would do well to review the British gentlemen warriors from a nearly vanished era who include a Colonel John Phillip Cross, a master of jungle warfare training from WWII for the SAS to Malaysia. Who, even though in his 80's, is still as mentally and physically fit as he was in his forties. A fitting, recent quote:

"Late 19th Century warfare never stopped, though is was masked for a time by the Cold War emphasis on atomic bombs. And in this type of warfare - that you Americans must master - only two things count: the mystic dimension of service and the sanctity of an oath. It's about the giving of one's best when the audience is of the smallest."

Though I have never met Colonel Cross his words give us a great insight - a lesson if you will - that many yet to have learn--that freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.

I personally learned my lesson in this hallowed area when I first entered the Army out of high school in the early 1970's.

After a few days of life in the Army I had lost all my freedom and responsibilities. The Army thought of everything: I was told what to wear, what to eat, when to eat, when to wash; how to fold my clothes. As time marched on I began to see that as I conformed to these edicts required of me and I did them as prescribed, I was given more responsibility back... and thus, I gained more freedom.

I graduated Basic Training, and that was followed by Advanced Infantry Training (AIT) at Fort Polk Louisiana where I was given a little more responsibility. There I finally had a little more freedom. From there I moved on to Jump School at Fort Benning. Georgia. I had not yet made it to a unit, but there, all I had to do was show up fit for training so I had a lot more freedom--but I also had the responsibility of not abusing it.

As I moved through those quick three weeks of Jump School, I saw some of my fellow soldiers use their time responsibly and I saw others that were irresponsible and I noted that they lost their freedom and spent their weekends doing details. Sometimes their actions would also impact their fellow soldiers (me included) so that we would be punished together as an example to show how precious responsibility is over irresponsibility - especially on the basis of maintaining unit integrity when the going gets tough.

Though it all, I eventually was rewarded for my hard work by being assigned to the 1st Ranger Battalion and at the beginning had very little freedom but eventually was given more responsibility and gained more freedom. So the responsibility = freedom point was always drilled in as I went through various iterations of the Army life.

I thought about this a lot over the years and realized that it applied to my childhood.

I also found that this applies to every facet of life and realized there is no freedom without responsibility and now through the above mentioned and other voluminous match sticks of experience of I have come to know responsibility is a another word for freedom.

Hooah!

[EDIT NOTE: John Cross joined the British Army in 1943 and, in a career spanning 40 years, served with the 1st Gurkha Rifles in Burma and French Indo-China during World War II. He commanded a rifle company in the 1st Battalion of the 7th Gurkha Rifles during the Malayan Emergency and the Border Scouts in Borneo, directed the British Army Jungle Warfare School and recruited Gurkhas for the British Army in Nepal. ~The jungle can be seen as the environment closest to mankind's primeval origins - and the setting in which he, or most of his kind, is least at home. Certainly, whenever the human race has chosen such regions for conflict, the physical conditions have always posed unique problems and demanded special soldiering skills. In this book, Colonel John Cross, one of the world's most experienced jungle fighters, and one who has spent most of his life teaching the art of jungle warfare, gives a very personal account of this form of fighting.~ By the author of "In Gurkha Company: The British Army Gurkhas, 1948 to the Present" (1986), "First In Last Out: Unconventional British Officer in Indo-China, 1945-46 and 1972-76" (1992), "A Face Like a Chicken's Backside: An Unconventional Soldier in South East Asia, 1948-1971" (1996), "Gurkhas at War in Their Own Words: The Gurkha Experience, 1939 to the Present" (2002).]

The Need:
Lack of PALS attachment points on Government Issue Body Armor Vest. Issue Vest w/ pouches in front is too bulky for movement within vehicles and buildings.

The Answer:
S.O. Tech developed the internal magazine slot system (patent pending) to drop the six rifle magazines into the flat panel that makes up the body of the Falcon. The internal magazines slots lay the six magazines flat against the soldiers' waist, reducing hi profile. The Falcon Rig fits over standard issue body armor. The Falcon Rig itself was designed specifically to meet the needs of 2/325 PIR 82nd ABN DIV, hence the name "Falcon."

Features:

  • 6 M4 Mag Pouches with Bungee Pull Tab system
  • PAL webbing
  • Shoulder straps with Fastech Quick releases
  • D ring Anchor points on shoulder straps
  • Built in Hydration Pack Fits 100 Oz. Bladder
  • Light Weight
  • Constructed of 100 Denier Nylon

No Surrender - Black Hawk Down

The Oct 1993 Battle of Mogadishu was the biggest single firefight for American troops since the Vietnam War. Rangers and elements of 1st SOF DELTA commenced a snatch and grab operation of lieutenants in Genral Adids warlord militias then ended up in a 15-hour-long gunfight pitting about 120 American soldiers against thousands of Somali irregulars and militia.

To the man, every U.S.trooper and pilot fought valiantly with little or no support, out numbered twenty to one until rescue elements including the 10th Mountian Division 214th Inf. and UN reinforcements, helped bring them back. . Though the missions original intent was valiant and bold in execution, its tragic conclusion shows how even though The Mog( as Mogadishu was coined) was not US soil, it is now as hallowed as Gettysburg or Pearl Harbor due to the spirit of No Surrender which exemplified the courage of the man on the street displayed.

The story of a battle is timeless. Once the battle is joined, a soldier fights to survive, to kill before he are killed. Now, etched in all our minds as a spirit of what No Surrender is all about, the battle of Mogadishu is known today in Somalia as Ma-alinti Rangers, or the Day of the Rangers. It pitted the world's most sophisticated military power against mobs of civilians and Somalian irregulars, who, when even having twenty to one odds against the US trooper ; in the end were not strong enough to break the No surrender kinship all professional soldiers embody.

Brit MI6 Confirms Bin Laden Nukes

MI6, Britain's secret intelligence service, has identified six Pakistani scientists working in Iran's nuclear bomb program who have been "advising al-Qaida on how to weaponize fissionable materials it has now obtained."

MI6 and the International Atomic Energy Agency believe the scientists have played a major role in enabling Iran to be "well advanced in providing uranium enriched materials for nuclear bombs," said Alexander Cirilovic, a nuclear terrorism expert in Paris.

RECOMMENDED READING - Unrestricted Warfare: China's Master Plan to Destroy America

As incredible as it may be to believe, three years before the Sept. 11 bombing of the World Trade Center a Chinese military manual titled Unrestricted Warfare touted such an attack suggesting it would be difficult for the U.S. military to cope with.

Here is an excerpt from Unrestricted Warfare: "Whether it be the intrusions of hackers, a major explosion at the World Trade Center, or a bombing attack by bin Laden, all of these greatly exceed the frequency bandwidths understood by the American military..."

Focus on Marine Enforcement

The United States always has defended it's borders and natural resources from harm. Unlike threats of the past, however, maritime terrorism constitutes a multifront conflict both at home and abroad. It recognizes no borders and can originate from organized groups and individuals operating inside or outside the United States. The fight against maritime terrorism, unlike conventional threats, is a complicated struggle with neither an easy nor a rapid conclusion...
