    You mean the rescue team?

    If they were PJ's they carry a bit more than a side arm.....

    No I'm not talking about PJ's (and from what I've heard I think in this case it was a Marine TRAP team, but that's neither here nor there). I was talking about pilots being issued sidearms in the case that they get shot down, would that be true?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Pilots since they are Officers get issued the M9.

I have been surrounded by a-holes that hated me because I was white though, And escaped from those 6-8 people when I was a kid. :p I ran and flew atop this giant electric thingy with metal covering. Once they surrounded me I kicked them all in the face.) Firing on an unarmed person outside of 4-5xmelee range would cowardly if they had angry faces and where trying to surround you and blitz you.
    and if they weren't friendly, once they got within 8 feet and one of them detonated the suicide vest he was wearing, your ass would be DEAD
