speaking of justice,
which side of the jail attrocities are you on these days?


cornfed white as#@&%es started gang in mens central jail in order to make money gambling and selling contraband into lockup

senior jail commanders when confronted with the fact moved to break up these as#@&%es association

but our sherif bent over and took rank and file intimidation up the a*#

then choose to ignore his senior officials soas to coddle the gangbangers in uniform who were intimidating him

intimidation; law enforcements bread and butter

whos back you got here tradie?

SEALS have their own submarines, little personal jobs for two or three guys and gear. Sometimes a lot of gear. They strap the mini-subs on the outside of a sub, or in a little tubeular carrier bolted down.



It allows them to NOT use SCUBA, no bubbles. Rebreathers are useful for that reason too, but have a very short range. The little stealth subs allow them to be dropped off also by sub, many miles from the target.

wtf?

what do you mean limited range?

rebreathers allow divers greater bottom time
the only way you exceed ones range is to tow a string of air tanks

A rebreather uses CO2 scrubbers and an oxygen source. Currently they seem to useful for about 15-30 minutes. Tanks can allow several hours of down time. Rebreathers emit no bubbles, they have to continue to carry the air you exhale and reuse it. They are very different pieces of equipment, and don't kid yourself.


Depth allowed and downtime are DRASTICALLY different. WHAY differnet tables. Exactly how different, well, I'm not a professional diver, but I bet there are guys here who can tell you exactly what the limits of the two different systems are.

But you absolutely don't use re-breathers very deep, or real long, you increase the levels of CO2 and that is deadly.


I could be wrong, there is always new equipment and new techniques, but I don't think thats changed yet.

Not even a special ops type, but how many stateside SAR teams could deal with this by themselves?



A bit of a busy day for one medic!

dmons won't even tells us where he's from or who he's ever climbed with from here, alas he goes into the unofficial 'troll-book and as#@&%es' file of mine.

Not many reside there...I still watch 'em, just ignore them mostly.

Folks may not like the headline, but I'm having a hard time finding fault in the content of this piece:

dmons,

BITD, certain unhappy inmates were taken out to the ramp for attitude adjustment. What's happening in MCJ has gone a bit too far, look for corrective action soon.

Morgan, I saw that piece too. I commented earlier in this thread that the 'advertisement' of our SEAL operations is unusal and not wanted by the SEALs.

The only recognition they like is from their peers in the military. They take pride in getting the most difficult assaignments. They DO NOT like their exploits going public.

They're supposed to be covert ops, not publicized.

I'm not really that concerned what the SEALs "want" (as if you have any idea). Obama is the commander and chief and he will decide how our military resources are best used. That may well involve highly publicizing (and even exaggerating) our special operations capability to use as a deterrent.
Remember that the actual SEALS are extremely low on the food chain (are they even officers?) and have no real strategic responsibility.

When you publicize their operations and their capabilities, you are undermining them.

Covert operations.

You never hear/read about Mossad operations, all involvement is speculation and denied.

If it increases their budget, a little openess is called for. An operation like that becomes a units mythos, like D-day and the big One.

You cant deny a little value to the fear that comes of hearing of a real units prowness, that is a worthy tradeoff. You get enemy that decides not to even challenge you when the unit DOES get mentioned. SEALS???

RAH???


RUN!!!


Its not like the enemy didn't know what happened, or couldn't prove nuttin... oops, we left some evidence behind... a big ass helicopter with USA written all over it...

I want to see the mission patches they will make for that op.
