My personal experience is that they are some of the most apolitical soldiers you will find. They will follow the orders of the Commander-In-Chief as best they can and do their duty. They don't care about politics, only the opportunity to serve.
I agree, I was in the 82nd Airborne next door to the Green Berets and they were special people.

all I know., captain spell check, is that the seals are PO'd about him not waiting and much of the intell people too. It's sad when you have Obama worshippers thinking he can do no wrong when he can't do much right. That's OK though, after he has failed to walk on water like he promised there's not too many who like him anymore. He can't fill his seating at his campaign rallies

Democracy in action. When the rich are the 1% minority and the 99% are middle and low class income then majority rules. What's wrong with that? Correct me if I'm wrong but when the minority rich influence the internal policies of a country isn't Fascism?
Getting back to this thing about the SEAL (singular, not plural), this was one Republican politician quoted in a foreign newspaper. If you are saying this was a group, this is more than one former SEAL, name your source. Where is your info coming from. The Martians in the flying saucer over your trailer in the desert?

Yes, Martians are here again, (dirty rat bastitches).

There were NUMBEROUS sealS that have come out on this, where you been, in a coma? or just downtown with your sleeping bag tossing rocks at cops in "protest". That'll make them rich 1% see the light, through a rock at a cop. I'll stick with my Martians, they make more sense.

The story surfaced in the foreign press because the US press won't touch it as water bearer for Obama.

By the way, there is no correct spelling for Arabic names, they are just spelled phonetically so as to be pronounceable in English.

That's not true. I'm a Korean linguist by military training. There are established systems for romanization of languages that don't use Latin script. These systems allow for linguists and translators to convert from the romanized names back to the proper spelling in the native language's script.

I'm not very familiar with the systems used for Arabic, Pashto, etc. But for Korean, the most-used phonetic systems are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCune%E2%80%93Reischauer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revised...tion_of_Korean

There is at least one common NON-PHONETIC transliteration systems that maps Korean characters to Latin characters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SKATS

The point is that yes, there are correct and incorrect ways to spell Arabic names.

OK, so you have no source of info.
