Scandal in the USA: And the "green berets" are fake ...

151
US News Agency Associated Press publishes material based on reports from sources in the US Army. The submission says that the command reward system for success in units and formations leads to an effect that negatively affects real success in the structure of the troops. In particular, it is noted that the command of the troops, in order to increase the number of “pluses”, goes for a frank understatement of standards in the training of military personnel.


In particular, it is reported about the outbreak of the scandal in the elite formation of US ground forces. Speech about the so-called "green berets".

Scandal in the USA: And the "green berets" are fake ...


An unknown person sent an e-mail to the military structures asking them to look into lowering the bar for training US special forces. The material states that the “green beret” of the special forces of the ground forces today can be obtained much easier than it was traditionally. The e-mail stated that violations of the regulations for the preparation and verification of fighters occur at the Fort Bragg military base in North Carolina.

Representatives of the military base command have already responded to the publication. Major-General Kurt Sonntag, commander of the ground forces, said he did not know what it was all about. According to General Sonntag, out of the 2 of thousands of applicants, the special forces green berets were received by “only 541 people”.

Sonntag:
We will thoroughly check all the claims contained in the material and conduct an internal investigation. But our standards relied and rely on items that correspond to the high quality of the training.

    frankly underestimation of standards in the training of military personnel.

    Probably it’s hard for gays and other transgender people to pass traditional standards. That understated. That is OK.

    What does Green take?

        In fact, they are pretty squeezed out. But in the 80-90s, Soviet blue berets (and besides the Airborne Forces were worn by SPN and DDR) were wrung out much more and faster. So much so that it was considered senseless to introduce this exercise in the NFP laughing Here

          And in the Chirchik brigade, pulling up on the bar was done in body armor. And the “rise-coup” many guys did 100 or more times. It all depends on motivation. Now she is not there, but there is only a desire to comply with the standard on verification to increase salary.

            We didn’t have our own armor plates, they were issued from somewhere several times when we went to military organizational special events. Particularly advanced ones pulled themselves up with kettlebells or pancakes, but now, when they are over 50, they suffer from this. I was prudent laughing drinks The coup d'état was stopped physically after us 30 times, although, yes, many could do for 100. Much steeper was the gymnastics on the shells - bars, horizontal bar. The comrade could bend the crowbar, but the "cross" on the rings could not. My “working” weight on the chest and triceps was 105 kg., Although it could have been much more, but on the same bars and the crossbar everything that had been registered could be 5 points. By the way, in 54 the same 105 pull drinks

      The image of Rimba is contrived and sucked from the finger by Hollywood storytellers. For what?

      One massacre in Songmi is worth it ... On March 16, 1968, at least 502 civilians - 173 children, 183 women (17 pregnant women), 149 men (mostly old men) were killed by American soldiers in Songmi and in nearby villages.

          As it became known, a year earlier, US Army personnel massacred the civilian population of several villages that were part of the Milai and Mikhe (Mikhe) communities, destroying, according to various estimates, from 347 to 504 civilians. Many victims were tortured by American soldiers before the killing, and women were gang-raped. The crime provoked the indignation of the world community and became one of the most famous and symbolic events of the Vietnam War. Only one soldier (William Kelly) was found guilty by an American court, but after spending 3,5 years under house arrest, he was pardoned.

          That is all American justice and the reaction of the world community.
          I will say more, the "green berets" are inherently PUNISHMENT formations of the Third Reich SS battalion format. They were trained to destroy partisan foci, which was also done by the punishers of the SS.

        This is a "very interesting" statement, given that the image of Rambo was originally invented not by Hollywood, but by a writer (yeah, the original source is a series of novels) and at the same time he is talking about the difficult PSTR and how the war broke a man.

From this punitive "elite", call me at least one real hero who accomplished a feat in the name of his people and his homeland. I repeat, over the past 70 years.

                    The Green Berets were trained all the way to the war with the partisans. In this, their special training is basic.

          That's where you come from such degenerates?
          Firstly, entering military service in the USA (at any military academy) without having a green card (that is, legally obtained RESIDENCE PERMIT) is impossible from the word at all. Once again, for s. The green card in itself, regardless of whether you are joining the army or not, gives you the right to obtain citizenship in 3 years. Therefore, you can sew up your bursting farts, but FOR RECEIVING CITIZENSHIP THERE IS NO NEED TO SERVE IN ARMED FORCES. You will get it anyway. Military service only allows you to speed up this process. And if you do not have a residence permit, then service in the armed forces does not shine for you in any role - neither in intelligence, nor as a cook.
          Further, serving in the armed forces without citizenship is only possible in certain specialties, the vast majority of which are infantry, that is, a regular gunner. Any specialty that requires working with documents (for example, Intelligence), working with equipment (mechanics), and all officer specialties require CITIZENSHIP, which, I repeat once again, cannot be obtained through military service without being a resident.
          All LRS (army reconnaissance), SF (green berets), Rangers - absolutely ALL they require the level of secrecy "SECRET" to enter the service, and this is 100% unbelievable without American citizenship.
          So stupid people-putriots can continue to write tales that immigrants are fighting in the US Army for a green card, but if you are a smart person (what a putriot can not be by definition), then you yourself can easily find all this information on the Internet and make sure that the putriot - however, quite familiar to himself - is lying.

          As for Vietnam - go see the statistics of the loss of Vietnam / North Vietnam and the United States.
          With the same success, it can be said that the Afghan shepherds, who had not seen anything but plows and sheep before, had piled on the Soviet army.

            Dear, you would also suggest comparing the destruction in Korea and the United States after the Korean War. I understand the argument, but you can’t fly beyond the borders either. Moreover, for some reason you require to compare losses only to the USA. Although in Vietnam 8 countries fought against the North, not including South Vietnam. You are intentionally trying to mislead readers.
            The United States lost 60 thousand people irrevocable, and more than 300 thousand wounded. South Vietnam with up to 250 thousand and up to a million wounded. Losses of North Vietnam are estimated at 1,1 million dead and up to 600 thousand wounded.

            Well, what can you prove from these numbers, I would like to ask? Will you really prove that such an imbalance of losses on the account of the "green berets"? If so, I'm afraid you urgently need to re-read literature on this war.

        Soviet cockard on a beret? During the service, there was an attempt to exchange the Soviet badges for new ones with an eagle from the soldiers, they didn’t pass, they didn’t accept)))) many people did the demobilization, but all of them sculpted Soviet badges on berets because ..... it's hard to explain))) , the Soviet also tried to wear the badges, the officers waved a hand and everything returned to normal. it came to curiosities when the replenishment in school books and old-timers refused to fix new nuts on hats, because they saw that they looked like Vlasov.

But how joyfully everyone rushed. It’s a discussion to discuss - it’s nice to read. Green Berets - bullshit, etc.

    Briefly - all the old, successful in the beginning, rich states / empires have a tendency, let's say, to "rot"!
    Decrease in motivation, loss of t.s. young enthusiasm and other losses in the state itself is transferred to citizens.
    Army - why should the fighters "rest" on meeting the standards that are really designed to increase the chances of survival in battle. These standards were written. blood. The fighters are sure that on the battlefield due to the advantage in technical means, weapons, etc. they don’t have to fight at the limit of strength why do they "get stuck" during preparation ???
    Examples, and for a long time, and recently are full!
    The Romans are barbarians, the Saudis are the Hussites, the SA are the Mujahideen, the Yankees are Vietnamese and further down the list.

There are many awards in the US Ministry of Defense, both for successes in the service and for the medals of military campaigns. I see the sergeant’s ribbons of medals “For the service of national defense” (top row, leftmost) - this is given out to everyone who serves in the army during the hostilities, it doesn’t matter if you really fight or not, and “For service in the expeditionary forces of the global war on terrorism "(second row, also leftmost) - 30 days continuously in the b / d zone in a particular campaign: Afghanistan, Iraq.

    And this, in turn, can mean that somewhere in the world a big mess is being prepared. And for such a mess, mass training is needed. The quality of training will certainly fall, but this is acceptable damage.
    But these Orkharovites, of mass production, even with simplified training, which in our military terminology is called accelerated courses, can do a lot of bad things.
