Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense -- Ron Paul
5:05 PM - 04 Feb 13 (Twitter)

As a veteran, I certainly recognize that this weekend's violence and killing of Chris Kyle were a tragic and sad event. My condolences and prayers go out to Mr. Kyle’s family. Unconstitutional and unnecessary wars have endless unintended consequences. A policy of non-violence, as Christ preached, would have prevented this and similar tragedies. -REP [Ron Paul]

The man no one would vote for except a very few,I am no christian but this man had a idea of our military defending our country not every one else's.Like i said this lies more on our gov and the people who keep putting morons in there not those who are ordered to do these things.I dont know of any soldiers who can declare war on other nations,never heard of this happening.

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

This man, of course, was a Navy SEAL, which means he was equally intelligent to how strong he was and how skilled he was with any weapon. You have to be wicked smart and have a ridiculous aptitude to be a SEAL. You cannot mess up - ever - or you and your teammates are dead. You have Jesse Jackson saying we should put the DHS in Chicago and calling people who back the Second Amendment 'Domestic Terrorists', but when it comes down to the most skilled sniper in the US - an incredibly smart man, blasting holes in the logic of the current administration and their agenda regarding guns - it's impossible for him to have been taken out? Please correct me if I'm wrong, but in the hell does that not make sense?
Sorry to ruin your childhood fantasies, but no matter how skilled or strong you are, you're not invincible.
If we you want to start throwing around accusations, you may as well have killed him.

Quote

On top of that, the CNN coverage keeps referring to how Kyle was killed by a semi-automatic handgun. It looks like the media is going to spin this and use Kyle, a fierce advocate for gun rights and the Second Amendment, as a martyr to go after handguns, next.
Looks like someone doesn't have a real argument so they need to grasp at straws.

And where in my post did I even indicate my belief in illusions of grandeur, or refer to how I cling to my childish psychological-induced fanaticism about the invincibility of man? As Camus said, we all are going to die - when and where don't really matter. He's dead - his worries are over, as cynical as that sounds. However, we're alive, and we're dealing with the aftermath - like his death being blasted all over the media and portrayed in whatever light the Left see fit.

Please don't put words in to my mouth.

I was merely highlighting that he was a skilled operator in combat - and his skills were only matched by his intelligence.

I was using a comparison to highlight how smart this guy was - because you need to be a damn near genius to be a SEAL; to react to situations in an instant, as if instinctively - proving one is a genius through hard work, or being able to form highly complex plans through sheer mental processes that save your life or those around you. Special operators are known to do the impossible - because if they don't, they're dead.

Because he was smart, and saw through the agenda, he was a threat. And now, unfortunately, he's neutralized.

But he wasn't genius enough to know that a)his actions were going to get him killed and b)he couldn't prevent it

Posted 05 February 2013 - 10:15 AM

Im just gonna CT this one. Pick your poison as to what happened.

1. Say that Texas the only state in the Union with the legal rights to secede staged the whole thing to hide the most dangerous man outside of the military with a sniper rifle. This one would have been to easy to cover up and could have been done at the local level.

2. If not then whats happening to our top Seals ? Seal commander commits suicide....Top seal sniper now murdered....

3. Will the gunmans family get the bounty offered by Al Queda ? seems he should or they gonna loose street cred.

4. He got murdered by a ex-soldier suffering from PTSD and we have a VA system that is crap. So Chris Kyle was making up for it by plugging holes in the broken system. He used his best judgment and it cost him and his friend there lives.

Because he was influential as the premier sniper in the US he had recognition and thus people listened to him - thus he had influence. And because he created a company that trained armed guards and trained people how to use weapons properly (Craft International); like the producer of the popular Youtube channel - FPSRussia - that demonstrates how to use various guns - who was found in his home with a bullet in his skull - he had sway - although he, Kyle in particular, moved against the grain with common sense, legitimate points, an understanding of history, and was an opponent to the ideas and legislation being pandered around via Washington's agenda which is: blast the conservatives, make the NRA and their armed guards idea seem crazy, and demonize gun owners.

Of course, this SEAL was a person who trained people how to use weapons - which is not what the government wants since there is a clear agenda.

As George Carlin once eloquently stated:

Quote

"But I'll tell you what they don't want.  They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them. That's against their interests. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they're getting ****ed by a system that threw them overboard 30 ******* years ago.

"You know what they want? Obedient workers ­ people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And, now, they're coming for your Social Security. They want your ******* retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this ******* place. It's a big club, and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club."

I don't mean to come across as rude, but please read my posts before you reply.

You know the ones from when we pushed Iraq into a war with Iran... That's when we where still in charge of Saddam. Hence why he was so angry when we wanted him out of power.

Gotta love this bit:

Anyway bottom line is, the CIA made Al Qaeda. That's a common fact now.

My arrogance, you think Iraq was involved in 9/11, even Bush said they where not... Yet he's the one who lied about WMD's... lol

As for Iraq and WMD's:



From Wikipedia.

The WMD's we went in for where not mustard Gas.

Saddam had mustard gas and used it, but that was not the WMD's Bush meant.

All this can be read on Wikipedia.


AGAIN, IRAQ had NOTHING to do with 9/11.

WMD's = Iraq (which was false)
9/11 = Afghanistan
Again, you don't listen.  :no:

Well if you truely served thanks for your service,lots of young men were drafted into vietnam had no choice but to go.I have several uncles who went.1 was a green beret the war ruined him,came back drank himself almost to death then finished the job off.I am not defending these pointless wars,but if you are suggesting that all the induvidual soldiers go off for there own empire making [of course i know how many millions they get paid wink wink] and our political leaders are not the real culprits who should be held accountable  then that is one of the most pompous answers available.I am not defending the pointless wars just the individual soldiers.

You have your opinion i have mine.Got to go later

Soldiers are pawns in a big game.  Some get promoted to Knight or Bishop, if you're a chess player.

Soldiers are cannon fodder, using the old terminology when they actually used cannon.  I'm all for the troops, and I am the first to recognize that there is such a thing as a legitimate war, and its opposite.

I'm glad you're not trying to defend these two illegitimate wars.  On that we agree.  You should read some of the comments of General Smedly Butler.  Sorry for no link.  He told it like it was.
