Everyday Heroes: The American Fighting Man

Everyday Heroes: The American Fighting Man I found this translation from 2008 of an article written by a French soldier who served in Afghanistan with Americans. His observations and comments about American soldiers in combat are eye-opening and should make every American proud. Although I have no frame of reference to agree with the author […] Read more of this blog post »

“The man mistook American patience and attempts at diplomacy for weakness.”
Joseph Badal, Terror Cell

“even paranoid people had enemies.”
Joseph Badal, Evil Deeds

“In the book’s index, she found an entry for Borderline Personality Disorder, with several sub-categories, including: Borderline Personality, Borderline Narcissism, Common Symptoms, Dissociative Symptoms, Self-Mutilation. Barbara turned to page seventy-two. The text listed an array of borderline personality disorder symptoms. It didn’t take Barbara long to begin to really sympathize with Maxwell Comstock. Life with Victoria must have been impossible at times: Mood swings, sudden irrational anger, depressive episodes, and impulsivity. Other borderline hallmarks were sexual confusion and promiscuity, manipulation and obsession of others, and a skewed, paranoid view of reality. On page seventy-five, Barbara learned that borderlines were indifferent to others’ needs, couldn’t handle rejection, continually sought approval, and had an exaggerated sense of self-importance. The ominous part of the diagnosis: No known cure.”
Joseph Badal, Borderline
