“Impressive record, but all the places in the South Pacific they mention (Hawaii, Guam, Palau, Iwo Jima) are north of the equator.”

I don't know why my posts sometimes appear two or three times. Ultimately, of course, it is George W. Bush's fault, but why my posts?

My grandfather served in the Pacific during WWII. He said that they always got a laugh about when the news reports would say, “ our troops in the South Pacific.... .” The only two things they could come up with was that it sounded better than “the Pacific” or that the censors wanted to keep the Japanese guessing.
