I respect your thoughts on this, but, PLEASE don't say -- he who lives by the sword
I never ooooh'd & aaaah'd about much, but damn Bob--his careerr at the time was being a combat soldier, in case you've missed it, war is when people get shot, blown up, what-ever. He also made no-one buy his book nor go to any of his training sessions. He is just a Patriot, plain & simple & I respect him for that. That's my reality in this instance. My heart goes out to his wife & kids & his partner that also got shot & killed.
Touche, Fred. I know what you’re saying, but I suspended my common sense / intuitive wisdom this time in favor of my cynicism, or realism. We tough guys make our heros – our Army Rangers, our Green Berets, our Navy Seals – then we oooohhh and aaaahhh over them like a bunch of middle-aged women watching Dr. Oz on the Oprah show. Yes it is sad that the guy was shot, but come on, he was no god, just another soldier lucky enough to come home and clever and cynical enough to profit from his experiences with books and shoot-em-up outings for people with $3,000 to burn. He based his career on killing people with guns, in the service and after the service, and he was killed with a gun.[/quote]
