You too can fight ISIS
Following the attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015 many people took to social media calling for immediate attacks on ISIS. These included a large number of people who have and will never serve in the Armed Forces of the U.S. While it is great to talk a big game and demand retribution, there are many out there who have answered those calls, so why don't these people? The opportunity might be there for these warriors of the keyboards. From The Havok Journal:As with every terrorist attack and mass shooting, the internet has been ripe with keyboard commandoes, militia supporters, and Mil-Sim paint ballers telling the world how they would love to go over to Bahrain (because they often don’t know the geography of current international security threats very well) and shows those God damned ISIS goat lovers what’s what. Of course, most of these loud mouth, arm chair tacticians have never served a day in a uniform they didn’t design themselves or download as part of a video game mod.Some of them know what they’re talking about when it comes to weapons. We all know the type – we see them at the local public shooting range in their expensive tactical pants and operator caps, usually armed with expensive weapons that include every imaginable variant of cool guy gear that can be attached to an AR-15 platform…much of it tan-colored. Because the deserts of the Middle East are tan. And that’s what the guys on the commando fan pages are wearing.What they are usually not familiar with is having targets shoot back at them. Or tactical movement techniques. Or physical fitness.This is in no way meant to disrespect or minimize anyone who has ever served in uniform, nor is it meant to disrespect anyone who served in peacetime. It is especially not meant to undermine anyone who simply never heard the call of military service and took a different direction with their lives.
This is meant to disrespect the chatroom big mouths and militia weekenders who have everything to say about how much they’d love to “go over there” and sling some lead on behalf of ‘Murica. The ones who take every opportunity to let people know that if the terrorists ever come to America, by God there will be hell to pay! But never served.As a nation, we’ve been at war in the Middle East since CIA folks and U.S. Special Forces began linking up with the Northern Alliance in September 2001. Opportunities to deploy overseas have been abundant in our military. Even many members of the National Guard and Reserve have multiple deployments as part of the Global War on Terror.If you really wanted to get in the fight, the opportunities have been there for you to do so.For the U.S. military, things have slowed down just a bit as our operations have tapered off, although that could change at any time.See the full article from The Havok Journal.There we have it. A solution for those who wish they could take the fight to the enemy. While the U.S. Military might be scaling down, it looks like others might be ramping up here in the near future.[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
