While there is absolutely no doubt at all in my mind that many of the strange beasts that people such as me search for are indeed flesh-and-blood creatures of truly unknown origin and classification – such as sea-serpents, the Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas, and the monsters of Loch Ness, Scotland – others are clearly not physical beasts at all.

No, I’m not talking here about the realm of the paranormal or the supernatural – although I certainly do believe that these issues play highly significant roles in certain cryptozoological cases. Rather, I’m referring to monsters borne out of nothing less than the imaginative minds of the U.S. military. You may well ask yourselves: what on earth is Redfern raving on about? Well, I’ll tell you!

If ever I needed another reason to dislike Mr. Redfern This story seals it.  I cannot imagine what he could have possibly been thinking to write such an article... War is hell, we all know it and we know the methodology is insane sometimes.  
What we don't need is some band wagon jumping para-scientist to give us the 'details of horror' from 60 years... He could have explained it in less details and got the point across just the same...    This just makes me sick.  :angry2:

I can see your point. It's sensationalism, which gets readers to read. I don't know whether to believe it, and personally, I see nothing wrong with such tactics. They attacked a patrol, which meant attacking people who had weapons. They knew the risks, fighting like that.

You're right, it's sensationalism and ... and... oh never mind...  :hmm:

I don't have a problem with military tactics. I think it would be clever of them to perpetuate an already familiar scary legend to help them accomplish their mission.  It would save lives on both sides.

It's a cheap way to gain readership, lol. That's the problem. Cheap and overly detailed/gory in this case. That it?

Even if this one story is true, that explains less then 0.001% of the weird stuff that is going on. It can't all be psy-ops special forces soldiers. To what purpose? Why would these psy-ops guys be going around the US countryside spreading rumors of Bigfoot and Chupacabras and sea monsters??

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

They wouldn't. Also, if we can figure it out, so can other nations. I don't mean to say every case is like this, but it's possible someone's up to something in some of these.

I have no doubt that this story and probably many others are true.... as for sensationalism.... really?  There was nothing of the type in this story... he did not say that the military made actual vampires... only that it was used as a military tactic. Which actually makes sense.  If only we could just take out one guy, and scare off an entire unit. I find that very interesting. Perhaps you (emberlake) should take time to actually read the story before you start criticizing it.

I think the US military is a monster itself.
I call for defunding it.
It failed us on 9-11. It should get no more tax-payer dollars. Not one dollar.

My issues with the article had zero to do with the military...
But I do Thank you so much for your suggestion.
Now, I'll return the favor and give you one in return, "Perhaps you should actually read my comments before you make a suggestion like that."

She was talking about the graphic details of how they accomplished the mission, about him coming out and saying "We grabbed a guy, punctured his neck twice, and drained his blood out." It was a paraphrase, but you can see what I mean.

Give the readers what they want, if you can't find anything, get creative. Whatever sales. Somebody somewhere out of control, if all else fails, the military, the government, or some "black"(not racial)business or corporation experimenting.
