re: Retired Green Beret officer: Mattis "left my men to die." - scrooster
[quote]What a bunch of bull shite. They fail to mention that the incident that Mattis "failed" to support was a spec-ops, CIA operation. The Marines are quite removed from such missions, especially in 2001 (it's much more integrated now). They also don't mention what the Marines were in the middle of ...

Just gonna have to let it play out but, if true and more people directly involved come forward and substantiate the story ... then it could be a deal breaker. Another thing to understand is that, especially in combat, there is a lot of inter-service rivalry at times and, if this really happened, ...

re: Rooster tell us - scrooster
Hey CG! Good to see you back. Yeah, well, with regard to keeping all the coaches I think it probably not only has to do with recruiting right at the moment, but timing, relationships in state, the relationship with Dillman and, also, ... mUSChamp thinks he pulled the trigger too quickly his first...
