In August, there is a BEVO tournament in Connecticut. People who play the game like it. I think Mongoose has done a good job so far. Yes there are delays. However, The effort to produce these models seems to go across the world.

I have no doubt that HLS is big bucks. I did think the baggage comment was cute. (and I couldn't resist). It was a legitimate question, and I would problably take the course if I was in school. I just didn't know what they taught in a class named HLS. I actually thought a CT class would be different...

Hiromoon, I understand it less now. From Arms Control to Counter terrorism. It seems less like a discipline and more like a way to get federal subsidies from the U.S. gov't. It appears that no one really knows what "homeland" security" really is. "programs will remain fairly wide-ranging until there...

Politically correct. Certainly not. I just think that its easy to mock Muslims, or for that matter any religious person. It is just not right. Approximately 35% of the middle easterners living in the U.S. are Muslim. That is it. On average, Arabs living in the U.S. (citizens and residence) earn a hi...

What is taught in the Homeland Security Class. How to search luggage.
Is there a military history and middle Eastern history taught? What a the qualifications for someone to teach Homeland Security?

The Old Soldier,
Interesting, I always thought it was based the general lack of respect for actual the 4 legged creatures. Those poor animals are treated awfully over there.

Bryam, Your correct "Allah Akbar" is part of the longer framework in a call to prayer. In-Sha-Allah= "if it is the will of God." In real terms it can mean "maybe" to when "hell freezes over." If someone says that to me, I tell them that I want a yes or a no, not an InShaAllah. Remember, the biggest ...

Its an interesting point of discussion.

"Allah Akbar" [God is great] alone is not generally the call to prayer. It is a saying. Pretending to pray, would be considered by many to be a severe insult. pretending to pray in fake garb could be considered a racial slur. Please don't do such a thing. Muslim means servant of God. Muslims serve G...

My four day old book is falling out its binding. That is the bad news. The good news is that I just played a game that had 3,500 points on each side and it was great. I'll probably have Kinko's rebind the book.

Splitting up squads-Is there a reason not to do it.

While playing the PLA, I always slip the teams up. Is there a time when this is not the most effective way to play the PLA?

I don't understand why people keep saying that want more background. 1) Go read the book 2) Go watch the film 3) Watch the TV series 4) If you're REALLY desperate, watch the other film 5) Play the computer game Plus all of the books had fluff in anyway, such as the documenting of the Road to Victor...

Jihad means struggle. There are two Jihads, the greater Jihad and the lesser Jihad. The greater Jihad is the inner struggle to follow Islam. The lesser Jihad is the requirement to defend the faith. Currently (in the last 50 years), some of the leaders of Islam argue that defending the faith is the m...
