What in the FUCK is going on with our special forces community?! I have been very hesitant to jump on any conspiracy theory bandwagon but this shit is just not adding up and cannot be ignored any longer. There have been way too many "accidents" involving the death of elite members of our special forces over the last two years to call it a coincidence.

A Navy SEAL from the elite SEAL TEAM 6 was killed and another SEAL injured Thursday night during a parachute training accident in Marana, Arizona, the military said. Details of the accident are not immediately available.

You're talking about real men who live on the edge of life every day, perfecting the skills that keep us free. Like astronauts, they know that every mission, every exercise, could be their last.

Don't dishonor them by questioning their commitment or their ability.

Or it could be intense media coverage because they keep putting their business out there, and they are involved in high risk operations, training, and techniques?

From what I understand injury and death due to training accidents is common in that community. They do a lot of very high risk stuff.

He isn't. He's wondering why so many have died lately and suggesting maybe there are ulterior motives...

As far as I know, they die often, and it's being publicized now.

I think you're probably seeing a lot of Navy SEALs dying because they have an extremely dangerous job. That's just a guess though.

Parachuting is not safe, especially in close proximity to others. This stuff happens to military and recreational jumpers relatively often.

How in the hell would anyone conclude I'm questioning their commitment or ability from the comments I made? How about if you go back and read it again.

I heard it was a canopy collision which if the case is hardly a conspiracy. Canopy traffic is generally one of the more dangerous aspects to skydiving.

It's really simple. They've been conducting about a 1000% increase in operations in the last 4 years. So yea, there's going to be an increase in accidents/fatalities as well. They're not supermen. They bleed just like the rest of us. Their prone to mistakes and accidents, just like the rest of us.

I know the place mentioned in the article, Marana Aerospace Solutions, I believe. I was filming a TV show last year at their airline "graveyard" when some parachutists started landing nearby. Was told by an employee that they were probably CIA. CSB.

Sorry to hear about the SEAL.

It's a high-risk job. People die.

a friend who was an F-16 pilot told me that on the first day of pilot training, the cadets were told the % of them who would die in a military aircraft, based on compiled statistics. It turned out to be chillingly correct.

ETA: I don't see any disrespect in your post, or any basis to assume shady activity.

What ulterior motives might I have for bringing up for discussion the frequency with which special forces members have been dying in the past two years? I don't work for Alex Jones. You might want to reference the prelude to my comment "I've been hesitant to jump on the conspiracy theory bandwagon". I haven't been throwing comments like this out there for every thing that pops up on the radar and I'm not drawing any conclusions. It is worth noticing and discussing.

I used to work at that airport/airpark in the 2002-2006 time frame and we would see jumpers all the time, we were told to ignore them lest we get greeted by a m4 or m-16. saw lots of jumpers miss the drop zone, but none killed while I was there.

My attention was called to this accident by a post from two people on FB who are in a branch of SpecOps (retired). They aren't drawing conclusions, either, but if they're taking notice and making these kind of comments I think it's worth mentioning.

They train hard, probably as hard as any group out there, and train in dangerous activities. These are the risks,
and as a jumper I don't see how you can find any "sinister motive" going on with this accident.

They fold their own chutes, and gear just doesn't fail like it used to with the old gear jumping rounds. If jumpers go in these days, it's because the jumper made a mistake, not the gear going bad, or someone trying to "do them in".

Plus trying to sabotage someone's jumping gear, it's pretty easy to spot anything that would actually do them harm after the fact, so it would be well know shortly after the accident. Alot easier ways to do something in then to try and induce a skydiving malfunction. Hell, make them jump enough and it will happen, the stats speak for themselves.

Not that often. They train hard doing things above and beyond the norm, but their accident rate is running higher than the norm for the last year or so.

Falling out of planes and realistic training is not always the safest thing in the world. Training accidents happen. Quit acting like a tinfoil clad special ed student.

How would someone even conspire to cause a skydiving collision? Which is more likely, an accident happened and cost a man his life, or some sinister dealing convinced a man to intentionally slam into another of his brothers in an attempt to kill him in a suicide "mission"?
