re: 10 things White People Should do - BLM Louisville - jonboy
[quote]. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.[/quote] A ton of holes in that top 10 but I'll stick with this one. They want someone to give their oversized home to a black or brown family i...

re: Check in if you're not melting over 4000 new troops in Afghanistan. - jonboy
[quote]SOCOM has been running these wars for nearly twenty years and we're losing.[/quote] This is partly the issue. It's been brought up quite a bit in the last few years.

re: Check in if you're not melting over 4000 new troops in Afghanistan. - jonboy
[quote]It's more leading from the rear and supporting them[/quote] Eh, that's actually kind of a bigger waste. Think about what you're advocating: taking an elite force of damn near Olympic athletes and put them in a battalion TOC to help Hadji figure out how to run LOGPAC?...

[quote]Because every SOCOM assets can and has. It's SFs speciality while SEALS are more Direct action but they all do both.[/quote] You are wasting an asset if SEALS are leading an Afghan light infantry battalion. ...

re: Is it even legal to conceal troop deployments? - jonboy
[quote]Also, I wasn't referring to specific locations, just the act of deploying the troops under a specific authorization[/quote] This was the gist of your question: "Is it legal for Trump to deploy troops to a "war zone" that Congress has authorized as being legal?" No doubt posed with self rig...

re: Orgeron hiring from his perspective - jonboy
[quote] I wonder if Lane told Joe "I'm coming to LSU if you hire O unless I land a HC job" [/quote] According to the article that's exactly what he said. It also mentioned Bama going all out to find him a job. If Kiffin tanks at FAU then he will be at LSU with O....

re: Question for the Book Board about a unique kind of book - jonboy
[quote]I'd release chapter 1 and then chapter 28 and then chapter 5 or whatever and make that part of the fun. [/quote] William S Burroughs did stuff like this.

re: How do we get out of Afghanistan? - jonboy
[quote] Mission was done the day Bin Laden was killed. That WAS the reason we went there. [/quote] Partly. The rest of the mission was to keep Aghanistan from becoming a breeding ground for terrorists. We were close but HRC & BHO gave the Taliban political legitimacy when they decided to all...

re: Communism - jonboy
[quote] In what form has it worked, and to what extent? [/quote] One could argue it has worked in China since the 1940's & in the Soviet Union from the Bolshiviks until the dissolution of the USSR. Yes it ended, but it did work. If Reagan had not brilliantly outspent them the USSR might still be...
