to stand silent and be considered a fool or to speak and remove all doubt

Ace. Chime in. Can't see how anyone could disagree with that?

Not so sure that is a great idea. I could easily see that being abused by people who hate the US to get training by the US

I'm with you Wallace. They would use our training against US.

They already do us it against us. At least if they're over here training, we can get a better idea who they really are and use that intel to better vet foreigners.

I doubt that, if their families are still over here until they get out. By then our troops will have learned which of them are secure and which are not. You would be surprised how many are killed by "friendly fire" in real combat.

That's a lot of if and assumes that they can't pull the long con which they can and will do.

It's a good idea, Kennedy tried it with the Cubans.  Didn't work for him.
If we did try it, the Left would take it to court.  It will never happen.
BUT, today I read Blackwater is back in business. Maybe, just maybe...
