dont know how you fellas feel about this book. i bought it today on my iphone. good read so far. funny thing is its nothing new. richard marcinko wrote about all this type of ct and much more 20 years ago. Rogue warrior gave the Navy fits. i reckon the same going to happen here. top navy lawyer is going to try to prosecute this guy. Red Cell, Green Team and Task Force Blue were unflattering on the president during tha ttime.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety- Benjamin Franklin

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it-Thomas Jefferson

God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure. -Thomas Jefferson

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not. -Thomas Jefferson

EMT book my mind wonders inbetween paragraphs. It is very hard to retain anything. However a good western like from Louis L'amour, no problem and the book is read in like Commander Data like speed.

I've been burning through Simon Bolivar and a book called The Longest Battle, its about the war at sea from 1939 to 1945. I picked up alot of good old books at school that were about to be pitched in the trash that I have to get to, I'll be reading them for years before I'm finished.
I started to read Reminisence by Douglas MacArthur and couldnt get through the first ten chapters, pompus A$$ a grand understatement.

+100 for Molon Labe!  I sure wish Boston would make his books available on kindle!

M1Aguy, I'm diggin your choice of literature!  Lone Survivor, American Sniper & Lions of Kandahar should be required reading.   Along with Last of the Breed, by Louis L'amour!

I was thinking more political commentary, I used to love Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage, but haven't read any for years so I don't know if they've lost it or what.
