Yeah, He's Been To Survival School
It was either this, or blink out an S.O.S.


The picture shows that this soldier has been thru Survival School and learned his lessons well. He's giving the sign of "coercion" with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW's as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. This guy was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with Hillary Clinton. It's ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo---perhaps because she's never understood our military to begin with.

If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.

The rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000.

That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington, DC

How many of those D.C. deaths would have prevented if D.C. residents were allowed to carry concealed weapons? Statistics from the 35 states that allow CCWs show they have a reduced incidence of violent crimes. Why? Because crooks fear armed victims and don't want to risk robbing, raping, or attacking someone who may respond with deadly force.

I can't see his hand-there's a red circle in the way.
Is all of that true about the sign of coercion, caveman, or is it just a joke?

Tom,
Yep, that's what it says.

Scarlette,
Only that young man knows what's going on in his mind, but the crossed fingers are a sign of coercion

Wizard of Oz, huh? I had her pegged for the Joker if you add green hair and white make-up with those eyes and that smile.

Hell, when I was in the USArmy, we didn't have 'survival school.'

You either survived or you didn't.

I'd swear that our brave man in the photo is surpressing a smirk. He knows that some sharp eye is going to catch his signal, and get a rescue team to the location where he's being held..

Dad29,
Thank you for your service to our country, but when you were in the Army, even the horses got alert when they sounded "Boots & Saddles."
