The OP tempo is too fucking slow, and it has been like this for 5 or more years, and we have too many hardcore dudes too far away from a structured environment, sitting around “in case shit” happens, and getting their CONOPs shot down because the risk profile is unfavorable.

The optempo has been slow before, especially pre-9/11. A platoon taking the 5th over a tape claim is no bueno. The booze is a sideshow; the sexual assault and clamming up is the main attraction.
