    Hey all.

    I ran into a few videos a day ago about Chris Kyle and his memorial service. Then as I had the TV on just now I looked up and what was showing on A&E? American Sniper. So, I thought I’d ask and see what you all think if the dust up that happened between Chris Kyle and Jesse Ventura.

    There are those that are very enthusiastic supporters on both sides of this story. I’ve never heard or read that the story was confirmed one way or the other. If it has, I apologize for bringing this up and please tell me the outcome.

    Anyway, do you think Chris Kyle punched Jesse Ventura out for running his mouth about the SEALs that were lost in battle and the war we were in or do you believe the exact opposite that Jesse says NOTHING happened and Chris Kyle lied about the whole thing?
    Many cite that Kyle told some gargantuan whoppers in his book that are proven falsehoods and this is but another one of the numerous lies he told.

    I don’t want to cause any ill will or bad feelings here, just a friendly discussion.

    Lastly, no matter what you believe about Chris Kyle and his stories, he was an American HERO that was taken far too soon by a fellow soldier that he was trying to help with his mental problems. He will be missed my many for sure. Huge sympathy for his wife and family.

    Ok, what’s your opinion of it all? Does anyone actually KNOW what happened or not?


    Thanks for your time and stay safe from the Chinese Bugs.

    In any kind of disagreement the truth is somewhere in the middle.

    Anybody catch that show about Ventura and aliens? I think it’s on the history channel. That shows you how full of crap he is. He is a shill. A has been. He may have been a good man at one point but that is gone.

    I don’t think Kyle’s story is 100% but believe the situation tends to lean more towards his story line.
    I don’t trust Jesse because his whole life is based on being a showman and fake, so.....

    I do tend to side with a real American hero that hundreds of our military men/woman had trusted their lives to:usa:

    Given that none of us knows or has any meaningful way of deducing, replies will say significantly more about each of us than what did or didn't happen between Kyle and Ventura.

    Considering Chris Kyle blatantly and definitively lied about a couple other things (super dome during Katrina, gas station shooting, awards) AND this actually went to court and multiple witnesses from that night...to include the owner of bar corroborated Ventura’s story...to the point where court sided with him...I believe Ventura.

    Kyle did great things for this country but had a history of tall tales and embellishments.

    I am going to continue to side with Chris Kyle. Jesse was at one time probably worthy of some deference and respect.....now....not so much.

    One is an American hero, the other is a POS. Kyle has been proven to be a fabricator but who wouldn’t want to punch Ventura? So in the end, does it matter? RIP Chris Kyle

    I believe Chris is a hero, now the spat with Jesse. I do not care about it. Also being a war hero does not make a good person either. We can look at several US war heroes and they were not the most Christian of folks.

    I have a friend, great guy. I can trust him with my life, yet I don't believe half of his stories about his accomplishments. Everyone has their quirks about them.

    Kyle. And for the “POS” JV to go after his wife after his death is down right disgraceful.

    If ever a Navy Seal could be stripped of rank post quest than Jesse Ventura would be at the top of my list.
