Who is “your fantasy”? I think that vid was putting it mildly. You’re correct though, many people dont get it.
We were out this past weekend scouting a valley and we stopped for lunch that over looked the entire valley from east to west. As conversation went on I asked the guys how bad it would suck to see a swarm of Hind gun-ships fill the sky above the valley and head toward Anchorage. One guys says to me ” I bet that would be your dream come true”. I just looked at him and said “really”? He really believed I longed for such a situation so I promptly addressed that assumption. WTf makes you think that? He just though it..Somehow he got the idea I do this for fun, shits and giggles. I dont get how anyone would think war would be fun. Its best to avoid ppl with such delusions.
I was asked what would I do. I told them If the Russians were trying to take Alaska, this valley would be home for quite some time. They replied they would both try to get back to the city to find their families. I assured them they wouldn’t make it anywhere but into a camp or body bag. They asked If i would try to get back to my town to my wife. I told them no.
Bergmann, you make a good point. My comment, “It will not be like your fantasy” was directed towards the larger internet survival/patriot audience I see that always seems to pine away for war. I am sure we have many lurkers here who dabble in those thoughts as well. However, it was misused on much of the membership audience here at MVF. As such, I changed it to reflect that.
The video is just propaganda. With that said, you were to insert your family into the video it certainly brings up emotions.
I have never been in a war however I was brought up on fathers stories of the Blitz in WW II. His childhood house was burnt to the ground in Glasgow. several weeks later the house they were renting was destroyed by the Germans too. Pretty tough stuff for a 10 year old boy.
Although I feel this country needs a “reset.” I wish war on no man.
