Hi Master, Who is your fader???

Regarding your last article, I agree with you. There is a lot of new techcnics, procedures, kind of vehicles, SRS`s, etc. I imagine my brain as a swiss army knife, but we never have to lost our point of view regarding the basis, the victime.

Also, we can find a lot of pseudo Jedis, with bunker gears full of patches, medals...bla bla bla...but they never faced the real one on the street.
