Tell you what.	You get a sword, I get an M-4.	We'll see how well you
do.  Consider that there are few areas where you can get a quick kill
with a sword, and most of them are covered by the ceramic plates or
the helmet.

Let's make it really interesting.  I'll take a 12ga shotgun instead. . .

There should be a severe disadvantage for folks going into combat
without firearms.  There is a reason we don't really fix bayonets
before going into houses anymore.  Proper CQB techniques minimize the
chance of being surprised by some idiot at arm's length or less, and
you should already have your weapon up and ready to engage the target
