    Look how tiny Bradley Manning is, physically.



    What he is accused of doing is enormous.

    The Wikileaks data show the war on terror is a lie.

    How did he ever make it through Basic?

    Octafish manages to turn this into a BFEE thread as well... damn, he's on his game today.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Everything goes back to the BFEE, according to Octafish.

    He got something in there spinning about some michigan militia, and Reagan-Bush, and my brain shut down. It does that when it suffers a stupid-overload, in order to protect itself.

    While Octafish is well liked on DU, he is also called on his nutty stories by many.

    He almost didn't. Apparently, he was going to be an Entry Level Separation (ELS), but at the last minute, someone decided to put him back into the mix and let him graduate. It was absurd, since in addition to his physical issues, he was belligerent, had issues with authority and was openly and obviously gay.

    We had a guy in my basic training troop who weighed about 110 lbs and who was almost as tall as I am. He was scheduled for airborne school after graduation, but there was serious concern that he wouldn't make the minimum weight, so whenever we ate in the field, the drills would call him back for seconds. It almost didn't work, as he just had a really fast metabolism, but he did make weight and he did go airborne. He wasn't the strongest guy in the troop, but nobody doubted that he'd make it because he'd never quit. My squad leader was a little runt of a guy, but tougher than a tanker's bar (and almost as bright as one). Getting through basic wasn't about size or strength, it was about having the right attitude, and from everything that I've read, Manning was the wrong answer from the get go.
