MoH SEAL Consultants Reprimanded

So many military shooters tout the credentials of their advisors there's a tendency to assume this is hype, but NBC News has word that the SEALs who participated in the development of Medal of Honor have received letters of reprimand from the U.S. Navy, and have been docked half their pay for two months (thanks David). The latest installment in EA's shooter series takes pride in the contribution of "actual U.S. Tier 1 Operators," and the truth of this is borne out by this reprimand: "We do not tolerate deviations from the policies that govern who we are and what we do as Sailors in the United States Navy," says a written statement from Deputy Commander of Naval Special Warfare, Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli. "The non-judicial punishment decisions made today send a clear message throughout our Force that we are and will be held to a high standard of accountability."

Well maybe if the US wasn't starting wars and invading countries it wouldn't be a problem now, would it?

Ah. How much experience do you have looking through EO/IR cameras, trying to discern everyday objects from weapons? In time-critical situations when troops have been in contact and an error in judgment will result in lives lost? Because I have plenty, myself, so I didn't want to embarrass myself if you had over 800 hours of combat flight time or something.

Anyway, the Apache video demonstrates - assuming the context is correct and WikiLeaks isn't lying with their commentary - is an unfortunate but completely understandable mistake given the situation.

As someone who has worked with those types of aircraft and ground forces extensively in various operations, I can attest to their professionalism and the seriousness with whic they assume their duties. AVOIDING civilian casualties in Afghanistan was our highest concern; to the point where we regularly risked the lives of our own before risking shooting or bombing the wrong person.

And do I view the GWOT as us vs. them? Yes, yes I do. That's what war is, and especially in this case, considering the tactics and goals of terrorists and Islamist governments, and their facilitators and sympathizers.

Um, not to discount and disrespect anything in your argument but I have to ask, what does any of this have to do with GAMES?! In case you all forgot, you're on a VIDEO GAMES WEBSITE. It's NOT political and NOT military, and honestly, a lot of us come HERE to get away from the very thing you people seem to constantly bicker about but NEVER agree on. So why even f'n argue about it in the first place? You know you're not going to get anywhere and the argument is just going to turn into a Democrat versus Republican 'He said, She said', like it always does. This is why we no longer argue about whether the PC or the Mac is better. Because regardless of the facts, everyone has their own opinion and while it is legal and a right to argue your opinion, it doesn't mean I have to #$%# listen to it all the damn time...no offense...

And in celebration of the right to state your opinions, let me say that this Democrat vs. Republican, Left vs Right bullshit is getting way out of hand! I'm getting so fucking sick of seeing something happen and 20 people over here snicker that if the liberals would just kill themselves the world would be rainbows and unicorns and 20 people over there saying if the conservative jackwads would keep their mouths shut, we'd all be happier than Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch...ENOUGH ALREADY! I'd love to just give you opinionated sons of bitches all the guns and bombs you want, put you all on a remote island and you can blow your asses to kingdom come to prove who's is bigger, if only that would mean you'd all just shut up! ...Just sayin'...
