    If you have a concealed carry permit use it and be ready to fight back.

    If you use your weapon place it on the ground and wait for police to avoid being mistakenly shot, as the bad guy.

    I have a lot of police friends in law enforcement and they have told me how to deal with this. When I first got my CC permit I became more aware of the awesome responsibility that comes with it. But I have been ready to put it to good use and I have been trained since I was 10 how to hit the target, and have no reservation in dealing with the bad guys.

    I don't miss what I am out to hit, with my Colt 38 super which is like a .357 auto. My Dad who was a War Hero in WW-II taught me well.

    I hope I never have to kill another human but if need be I will, and you should be too.
    If zombies ever attack I'm sure you would hold out for months. That being said your entire post is ridiculous.
    You can't reason somebody out of something they were never reasoned into in the first place.

    Nope. You're right. I read "PLO" and then read the message just above theirs. My bad!
    No problem bro, glad we cleared that up.
    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.

    I don't even know what I'm thinking half the time, let alone the world.

    I'm sure the reactions are as varied as there are people on this planet.

    There's like only three ways to react to this:

    1) Yay!
    2) **** you!
    3) oh nooo!

    Or... no reaction... which is where I'm at now about it.

    Time to get back to reality.

    Goddammit and a half. If they wanted to take credit we should have allowed them to, instead of snubbing them and admitting that we'd done it behind their back. We should have smiled and heaped praise on them for their invaluable assistance and made it impossible for them to deny it. Now we've openly violated international law and forced an unreliable ally to distance herself from us to save face. Whoever screwed this pooch should be horsewhipped.
