Triangular Bayonets like the one pictured are banned by the Geneva Convention.

Must be why the ChiComs mount them on their version of the AK (and the SKS for that matter, I just happen to have a pre-import ban Chinese "SKS", with the bayonet (Although I couldn't tell you just where the bayonet might be at the moment, unless I actually put it back on the rifle :) )

Last night, I just happened to turn on the movie ZULU, which had nothing to do with Iraq. Still I was drawn to the British effective use of the Bayonet. Back in WWII, I recall that item of issue then. It was also a real pig sticker, nothing like the one issued today in length.

I was just checking and not one freakin mention on the BBC Newssite.

This is the first time I've seen this story (and it's 3 days after the fact). Have either of you seen it published anywhere else?

that Scottish skirt thing, sans the undies, with nice, tanned, hairy calfs and socks with a little balls on them didn't, for a moment, stun the enemy with sexual longings,

well, I know it sure would have caused such a thing with THIS female!!!!!

A propos of nothing, BTW, I only a few years ago learned (through another family member's geological research) that I'm a MacBain of Scotland through my great-grandfather Bane of West Virginia. I hope that doesn't mean we have a feud to the death or something.
