    I don't know him, haven't read any AAR/watched video on his actions,but the challenge video seems a bit like he might have issues in his mind with his actions. OMO.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    I really dislike trash talk. James might be careful what he wishes for. He might be surprised when someone takes him up on it. And all I got out of the second video was something about a very excitable Brit.

    That is what was contained in the AAR (to the best of my recollection) and that does not (in my mind) in any way equate to an act cowardice.
    I just read it and is have to agree with you. 2 belt fed AP machine guns can put a hurting on most any vehicle

    Ya I'm a subscriber. I wouldn't call him a coward but in a recent video his wife said he was an a-hole! LOL.

    I didn't see anything in the video. Is there more to the story on the web?

    IMHO he did what he could during the Ambush,and he admits that there were several mistakes made that contributed to the attack and the Injuries sustained by the Team.

    Saw the vid............bullets rippin through the car.........I guess the guy that bailed out and ran was James.....no one knows how they will react when the SHTF.....I'm sure he regrets this vid going public but he was there and we weren't.....not judging him at all.

    That is my personal opinion after watching the video and additionally based on having read the entire official document/transcript/AAR (After Action Review) of the incident. The man did not run away and he did not leave anybody for dead.

    I'm with you. I subscribe to his channel and while I don't agree with all his philosophies (we are all entitled to our opinion) he does have some good info. Sure he might come off as having and ego and over confidence but if you were looking for an instructor would you rather have someone like that or someone who is wishy washy and doesn't seem too sure of themselves? But he'll also be the first to admit he doesn't know everything and is constantly going to training courses to better himself.

    I hope somebody out there takes him up on his offer.
