Genghis Khan's hordes...sounds familiar. You weren't one of those referenced in that laughable Kerry Kongressional Konfession were you?

If that is the case then I won't hold your uber-tactical nature against ya. It can't be easy being a government trained babykilling villageburning sex machine. With wheels, no less.

"Shrink, I wanna kiiiiill! I mean, I wanna, I wanna KIIIIILL!
I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see bloodandgoreandguts and veins in my teeth!
I wanna eat dead burned bodies!
I mean kill!....Kill!.... KILL!....KILL!....
"

And I started jumpin up and down yellin' "KILL!.... KILL!.... KILL!...."

And he started jumpin up and down with me yellin' "KILL!.... KILL!.... KILL!...."

And we was both jumping up and down yelling, "KILL!.... KILL!.... KILL!...."

And the Seargent came over, pinned a medal on me,
sent me down the hall, said "You're our boy."

Interesting. I just spent part of the morning working out with some recruiters.

Did you know you can earn $2000 for bringing in a new soldier to the Army?

Then, the new guy is eligible for almost $40k in signup bonuses, if he/she is at all on the ball? Also they have a new "no deploy" contract for the reserves.

Almost as good as the old British Navy "impress" gangs.

See now, if you really want to put the Fear of God into the heathen hordes you have to do like the Reavers in Serenity...strap the dead bodies of your enemy onto your combat vehicles and aircraft. Probably only work on low-n-slows like A-10's or A-6's but the effect would be dramatic I'm sure

... please explain to me what good it does to recruit reserves if you CAN'T USE THEM!

Is that like the millions of desert camo uniforms that the Army bought in the 80's that couldn't be used in Kuwait during Desert Shield/Storm because they were polyester instead of 100% cotton? They saved a lot of money buying them, though! When questioned the bureaucrat said that they never thought that the Army would actually need them so they bought the unusable cheaper ones.

There are an amazing number of levels of incompetence in that statement.

Might be a little after your time, but I know Ms.Cuddy remembers the polyester Chiefs and Officers Khaki's the Nav came out with in the '70's? After a few of them went up like Roman Candles it occured to them that flamable material may not be the best option in an at-sea enviroment.....

Somehow the thought of 70's era Chiefs and Officers dressed like Leisure Suit Larry just tickles my ribs. And seeing them go up like roman candles only ices the cake. I'd like to see Lt Stuber go up like a candle. He's the guy who used to sit in his office in Danang miles away from the action and radio us to "move in closer".

I say we enlist my kid and split the $42k. Heck, he's almost 9, that's got to be close enough these days!
