Re: “Apparently, the U.S. Army doesn't know Fort Carson is using animals in training

Reality......


1: All life is precious and should not be sacrificed or lost without significant and deep thought and consideration.

2: My son/daughter/father/mother or any blue collar worker, unemployed person, retarded person, poet, soldier or politician(well maybe) life has more value than a farm animal.

3: Simulators should be used whenever possible. Use of animal models should be minimized.

4: Bleeding and coagulation of blood are extremely similar between mammals of all species.

5: I personally would not want my son to be the first time somebody in combat saw massive life threatening bleeding. I would want the person that is going to bandage and stop the bleeding to have done it a few times before they work on my son in the dirt and stress of combat.


Therefore, I state again....

There is most likely a place for both simulators and real live animals in military combat life saving training.

That is the reality check. Rare is life as simple as people would like it to be.

The point is that our soldiers deserve the best training possible. If there is even the slightest chance that sacrificing a few farm animals will save a soldiers life then we need to do that.

Again, time for a reality check.

I completely support animal welfare. But PETA needs to do a reality check here. OUR SOLDIERS DESERVE THE BEST TRAINING POSSIBLE.

As in all things, a balanced approach is probably best. Simulator training with experience on actually stopping bleeding on a living breathing animal is probably the BEST. Saving lives is a real skill needed by anybody that might be in combat.

I wonder how Goodman would answer this... "If you had to make a decision today to sacrifice a pig/goat or your husband/son/daughter/mother will die, what would you do?" Hopefully, she would not sacrifice her family member to prevent a farm animal from being used humanely in training. Especially since the pig would be sausage/bacon/ham sometime in the future anyway.

The followup question would be.... "Would you sacrifice TWO pigs for the life of a family member? Again, hopefully her son is worth at least two pigs.

More follow-up... "If you had to sacrifice 25 pigs for the life your son, would you do it?"

Twenty five or infinity pigs, there is NO comparison to a single HUMAN LIFE.

Again, PETA needs a reality check. The BEST TRAINING is probably a combination of both simulators and Live Tissue Training.
