Flyover country, Baghdad!
If you want on or off my pro-Coalition ping list, please Freepmail me. Warning: it is a high volume ping list on good days (most days are good days).
Anyway, Ermey has one of the best quotes ever:
My guy in D.C. tells me that we are not dealing with a student here, we're dealing with the Professor. Any time the military has an operation that can't fail, they call this guy in to train the troops, OK? He's the kind of guy that would drink a gallon of gasoline so he could piss in your campfire! You could drop this guy off at the Arctic Circle wearing a pair of bikini underwear, without his toothbrush, and tomorrow afternoon he's going to show up at your pool side with a million dollar smile and fist full of pesos. This guy's a professional, you got me?
Drop and gimme 20, you maggot!
"Hey, Kelly! I got a case of Scotch that was supposed to go to the general...."
Interestingly, there have been all kinds of postulations about V.P., Sec. of State, etc. moves lately (here on FR and the media in general).
Maybe R. Lee for Sec of State? I guarantee that the French would be eating the sh*t out of our hand within a month, if R. Lee were at the helm of State.
My dad had all sorts of tales of trades and stuff they did when he was in Italy during WWII. Some really funny stories...which was just about all he would talk about.
