"He went on to lecture him about how docs are healers and such things are breaking oaths and making him a hypocrite/liar. Mind you for as long as he knew me he knew my hobbies/interests because other people mentioned them. It was eye opening to realize that although we were "friends", he couldn't view me the same way becaue I was tainted"
That is sad, I guess he has not been around too many SF Medics. My PA , who I see once a year for my medical clearance, is a former SF Medic who saw a lot of action. Good man and experienced. I can't lie to him like a regular doctor:))
Youre false friend should apply to either the state department or USAID. I have occassionaly provided PSD services for those people and find them to be the most judgemental people I have ever encountered. They have no life experience except attending some Ivy League college, but, they are experts on everything from Muslims to the military. However, they are just babies to real predators and dont even realize the problem.
You trying to train and educate your friends on survival will only help keep them alive to "heal" someone who needs it. IMO, he is the "tainted" one and is a good example of our general populace.
"Asymmetric warfare is all awesome and shit. Until you try to found your own nation, in a fixed location. Then it isn't awesome asymmetric, it is shitty supply lines and no industrial/manufacturing base asymmetric. AKA "We gonna get rolled the fuck over." Now if he is just looking for his own martyrdom than I guess I see it, but trying to provoke/get a body count in mainland North America and Europe vs just fighting local doesn't seem wise. Unlimited warfare would not fare well for his would be nation, and they literally lack the ability to force an "All hands on deck"/Total War response"
Good point and I agree, but, they have millions of martyrs to choose from worldwide. Just call your local Imam, order up one of the local fanatics to strap on a bomb vest, walk into the Mall of America on black Friday. Detonate. Easy.
Sorry, need to stop, feel a rant coming on. Be safe. I hope that idiot doesnt cause you problems at work.
