      The commanders’s dilemma is suicide - you don’t have to pay insurance, but they’ve got a showdown, you have to pay insurance, but you’ll have a showdown either, the attack or your own, right now it’s hot, but once it comes to the press, you’ll be quiet

        insurance is not necessary to pay, but disassembly, shot - insurance must be paid

        Merchant John was drafted into the army and assigned to the training center as an agitator - to convince soldiers to buy insurance for military personnel.
        Soon, the authorities noticed that after meeting with John, almost everyone bought insurance, although every third agrees to sign up with other agitators, even the best. And the boss decided to see how John works.
        The newly arrived soldiers were driven into the room, John went on stage, smiled and said:
        - Guys, I know that you do not want to listen to any dregs for a long time, so I will explain to you about insurance in one minute.
        The meaning of insurance is simple: if you do not have it, you were sent to battle and you died - the government will send a letter of condolences to your family.
        If you have it, you were sent to battle and you died - the government will send your family 20 thousand dollars.
        Then John paused, looked around the room and asked:
        - What do you guys think, who in this situation will be sent to battle first?

      The report of the journalists said that the US Navy Marine was shot dead while on duty.

      So what ?! Is this an ordinary incident worthy of being posted on the Military Review of Russia?
      You can kill anyone, even with bodyguards, but blurt out overseas incidents here?
      Is the site getting smaller?

      As a matter of fact, what difference does it make to us - was it a crossbow or elementary negligence when handling weapons? In the United States, up to 70% of the population are on antidepressants.

    Strange coincidences: a former US Marine was detained in Moscow for espionage, and in Washington a Marine was shot dead. Sounds like some kind of cover-up operation or Bronx showdown?

    There are problems with losses in any army, where more, where less. The USA is no exception.

    According to the sources of the Military-Industrial Courier (25.06.18/14/47 XNUMX:XNUMX Army, military-industrial complex, special services) - The US Army suffers heavy losses in peacetime
    Statistics in recent years show that the US Army suffers more losses in peacetime than in war. This issue raised concern among congressmen.
    Last year alone, at least 80 US troops died as a result of training accidents, while casualties in the war zone amounted to 21, PressTv reports.

    According to a spokesman for the Armed Forces Committee, Rebeck Mac Thornberry, this has become a sad trend since 2015. A Texas lawmaker also recalled that as a result of accidents from 2015 to 2017, 185 people died and 44 people died at the front.

    Particular emphasis is placed on air crashes. According to the study, from 2013 to 2017, 133 U.S. troops died as a result of air accidents.

    The situation is no better in England. Back in March 2018, the UK Ministry of Defense reported that from January 2000 to February 2018, 141 soldiers of the British armed forces were killed as a result of accidents. In particular, it was about accidents during maneuvers or during training on military equipment.

      Perhaps it would be more if this was not shot. They don’t say anything, maybe post-traumatic syndrome is to blame. Or maybe he wanted to arrange jihad, they already had this. And you can blame the blue ... who knows.
