The problem with non-lethal weapons is they are temporary. The one you taze today may shoot you tomorrow. How many Jihadists do you think would change their religion after a non lethal experience when they are perfectly willing to Die for Alah? Wouldnt it be wonderful if we could drop a bomb on a country that would actually change them into pacifists?

Much nicer than unloading with a HMG.
Which version of Call of Duty does this one appear in?

I thought dude was talking about that microwave thing for crowd control? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_Denial_System

I think it would be easier to use a flame thrower of some type.

Good Grief,, are you for real????

With your vast knowledge and experience, you should be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. You could arm our troops with axes and laser-thingy's and we'd win every battle for sure.

Grow up kid or go back to the video game forums...

Interesting...now you have my attention. Please, do go on about what else Special Forces soldiers are trained in? I have always had a real interest in their training.

Son, I'll tell you what you go back to your comic books and video games and when you grow up and mature we can educate you on real life. Until then don't believe everything you read on the interwebz and youtube. There are some of us on this forum that not only know what Special Forces are taught but have taught and lived it. I don’t think you are in any kind of position to advise us of what SF main tactics are or even what they do. Please refrain from posting this stuff as it only shows your inexperience and ignorance of the subject matter.

Are you former SAS or SBS? What first-hand experience do you have?

Please provide us a credible pedigree for the expertise you are trying to demonstrate...
