“The “bad man” is the person every country needs to have in time of chaos. He is exactly what politicians try to convince you the public that we don’t need. He is not the bad man because of his training, equipment, support, logistics or Intel. He is the bad man because for whatever reason every ounce of his soul wants to kill the enemy in the most violent graphic nature thinkable. He is the 17-year old farm kid who didn’t know he could be the bad man. He is the war torn veteran who has been the bad man before. He is exactly what makes men live free for it is the bad man in a person who will fight to his death because he realizes there are things in life more important than life itself.
Much can be said about this and I may sound “Hollywood” to some of you. I am not. Ask any survivor of a violent confrontation the details of his experience and if he can tell you all of them, he is lying and has never been the bad man. Most of the time, the bad man cannot be summoned, he usually comes on the scene within the body of the last one you would expect at that critical point in time when things are all wrong and becomes a hero, dead or alive. I am proud to say, I have seen the bad man work and I hope you never need to meet or become one. But I am very happy he exists. I’ll finish with a quote “Kind hearted people might think there was some ingenious way to disarm or defeat an enemy without too much blood. This is a fallacy.” Carl von Clausewitz “The Principles of War”
