Green Beret Pleads Guilty to Espionage

Quote:
Debbins told Russian intelligence he considered himself a “son of Russia,” and “thought that the United States was too dominant in the world and needed to be cut down to size," according to the indictment.

I think a jury of true QPs would be justice.

A friendly squirrel told me he lost his tab 10+ yrs ago.
He is not who he thinks he is.
He will get everything he deserves.

This is one of the truer statements .....many a security, skill proficiency and character concern can be overlooked for a 3/3.....see the Jeds

Ouch.

It's totally not a disregard for standards...
...lets just say sometimes we need to look at ways to remove obstacles from training and eliminate barricades that keep people from participating.

Inclusivity means EVERYBODY gets to play.

Since it WAS my quote and it IS about equity and fairness, I think we should split the cross-thread points.

Posting MY quote and then claiming ALL the cross-thread points for your own is how you end up in a mandatory IBM Deconstruction and Atonement for White male Privilege Seminar. (hows that for cross-thread points)

Take ole' Ikar Lesnikov for example - 15 years of sucking up to Russians and denying his privilege caught up with him - now he can spend the rest of his life atoning for his 'White Male Son of Russia' privilege.


Share those cross threads bro - it's an investment you won't regret.

See? You just got your own. That's how privilege works as I mentioned to ODNT. You do it, you get it. Meritocracy. This isn't Commie Checkers where your opponent gets half of your Kings just because he was inattentive enough to get jumped.
C'mon man! You know, the thing.
