• Is the US president, "any" US president, a slave to the military? Is the military the "real" ruler of our nation?

    I suspect so, and we don't even realize it.

    From a Vietnam War Veteran I know he told me what happened. He said under Nixon we won our mission in the Vietnam War with the Paris Peace Accords. Our mission was to prevent North Vietnam from taking over South Vietnam, it was never to do a full scale invasion of North Vietnam and storm through Hanoi as China and the USSR would never have allowed that to happen. After the Paris Peace Accords that brought a peace agreement with North and South Vietnam right there we WON our objective, the radical left via the democrats in Congress, the liberal media, the Anti-War movement were Furious over this, they never wanted peace in the Vietnamese Pennisula at SEA, they wanted a communist victory all along. So after we withdrawn all our troops the democrats and radical leftwings in Congress blocked Nixon from sending any aid to South Vietnam and tried to hound Nixon from office for that while the USSR was supplying and arming North Vietnam. North Vietnam broke the peace agreement and invaded the South, while the democrats in Congress made it impossible for Ford to send any possible assisstance to South Vietnam. North Vietnam succeded in taking over the South. That's the story from the Vietnam Veteran I know who was there on what really happened.

  • If I join the Marines, will I see combat?

    Best answer: Go through Marine Corps boot camp and you'll see it doesn't matter if you see combat or not because you will be trained as an infantryman first and you will qualify on the rifle range before you pin the Globe and Anchor on your lapel. You will then become a Marine for life, even when you are a civilian... show more
    Best answer: Go through Marine Corps boot camp and you'll see it doesn't matter if you see combat or not because you will be trained as an infantryman first and you will qualify on the rifle range before you pin the Globe and Anchor on your lapel. You will then become a Marine for life, even when you are a civilian after serving in the Corps. Yes, we are a band of brothers and I will still give my life for a brother Marine 56 years after leaving the Marine Corps. You'll learn what I mean as you go through boot camp and what you learn will stay with you for the rest of your life as it has with me. Immediate obedience of orders is what you'll learn, and you will learn it as you get off the bus that takes you to boot camp. Are you ready to become a United States Marine? I hope so because we need new Marines to replace those who've served more than 6 tours of duty in a combat zone. Welcome to the United States Marine Corps, my future brother Marine.

  • Is the 5.55x45mm a good round?

    I heard that the U.S. military is switching back to the .308 round, because the 5.56 wasn't getting the job done.

    I heard that the U.S. military is switching back to the .308 round, because the 5.56 wasn't getting the job done. I've seen forum posts by veterans saying that it took too many rounds to stop one attacker. I've heard several bad things about it, but I've heard several good things about it. I am interested in it because the ammo is pretty affordable. I have a ar15 style 22lr and i want to get a real ar15. Should i go for the 5.56x45mm or should i spring for the .308?

  • Is the AK-74 accurate?

    Best answer: Define "Accurate" . It is a mass produced infantry arm. Not manufactured to extremely high tolerances. At best, data suggests with ball ammunition, they are capable of a 4-5 MOA accuracy. No where near "sniper" quality. But then again that is not their design. Like arms of it's category,... show more
