Default The Army's new "warriors wanted" video.

Some say it is "offensive", but I tend to agree with it. It invites the "risk takers", and the adventuresome, just what our military needs in larger numbers.


I never liked that short lived slogan.."Army of one!" It gave the impression that one could be the ultimate "individual".

Banish the thought! Our military thrives upon teamwork.

This commercial shuns "political correctness"..which has infected some areas of our military. Sad, but true..

Those that are offended need not apply. I wonder if Gillette will include these scenes in their "Toxic Masculinity" commercials?

I sure wouldn't want to have somebody supposedly "covering my back", who doesn't like the idea of fighting the enemy...or is so much a snowflake, that they

might hesitate when action is necessary and immediately urgent.

Yes, real warriors are risk takers who believe in God and country.
These warriors should be able to catch a "conscientious objector," castrate him, and give him to his wife as a house slave.

I think in the movie Patton said to make the other guy die for his country or something like that.

I didn't see the video, but it can't be any more macho appealing than the other ones they've used during good economies when it was hard to find recruits.

Sometimes I wonder if Rangers get all that training just so they can serve as models in ads like that.

Would you rather see our army ads looking like this?...

The Rangers take all that training because where they go , they need it and use it! ...At least the Rangers I know.

Tha video from the UK would be a tragic mistake for our troops.
