Ft Collins, CO --( Where is the glamour?

“I feel like Zsa Zsa Gabor’s sixth husband. I know what I’m supposed to do, but I don’t know how to make it ‘interesting.'” ~ Milton Berle

A potential student asked my yesterday, “… and do you do all the stuff I’ ve seen in Rambo movies?”

I replied, “Do you have any idea what the real world is like, son?”

Too much time spent in front of a TV screen makes a dull boy, and one with unrealistic expectations!

Living within the borders of CONUS (contiguous united states) , many of us get the false impression that what we see about us is “typical” of the world and of world history. Not so! In fact, we live on an atypical, and ever-shrinking, island. The ” typical” condition of the rest of the world can be best described as ” barbarism,” and that pretty much describes most of world history too.

And, brutal barbarism is alive and well today! Assuming you have the stomach for it, you can see it for yourself : ( Warning Graphic Video)

I came face-to-face with this in Vietnam forty-five years ago. I haven’t forgotten, and never will!

Thus, precious little of what I teach in my Courses is “glamorous,” nor ” sexy,” nor “voguish.” Basic skills rarely are any of those things! The personal journey to becoming an Operator is filled with drudgery, repentance, and just plain work.

My students understand that from the beginning!

Basic, life-saving fighting skills that we teach are designed to prepare students for a desperate world they will some day (maybe today!) find themselves in.

We don’t have a lot of time, and I have scant patience with starry-eyed adolescents who spend too much time watching Rambo, and not enough watching the news!

      Where is the outrage in the Muslim community? Islam is a sick cult that worships death and should be not be tolerated.

      The solution is not eradication. You don’t solve this insanity with offensive violence you solve this with education, understanding and when needed defense. What bothered me the most is that they simply walked calmly to their deaths. No one fought no one ran no one even fell to the ground and said “drag me but I am not walking to that pit so you can shoot me without having to atleast clean up the mess.”
      I definitely don’t agree that the solution is gun battles and the best armed wins but on the flip side why not do something to defend your final 30 seconds? Sure didn’t look staged or Photoshop so I just don’t get it. You are about to be killed why act like cows or sheep? You are humans run, scream, fall but don’t calmly easily ablige them. Sure you are going to die don’t make it easy!

    6. No different then what the Natzi did during WWII,
      watched hours of these tragic events on cable this week, so many people just rounded up,
      hung, shot or gassed in the chambers.

    7. I’m sorry but if anyplace in the history of the world deserved to be nuked this shAthole wins .
