H&I Fires* 17 May

Open post for those with something to share, updated through the day. New, complete posts come in below this one. Note: If trackbacking, please acknowledge this post in your post. That's only polite. You're advertising here, we should get an ad at your place...

Oh, now this is just the way I want to end my night.
NOT. Whose bright idea is it to give Iran a nuclear reactor with which they'll do the same thing that S. Africa and Israel did with theirs(build an A-bomb with them)? I really wonder sometimes.

So, you're at that blogmeet, you've just worshipped at the porcelain idol, you're staggering out, and you can't remember where you are! Well, if there's a nice selection of rifle grenades on the table outside the latrine, while the kitchen is under construction... you're at the Castle. We *don't* like door-to-door salesmen. The Watchtower is a magazine, btw.

Blackbeard's cannon. Kewl. H/t, Toluca Nole. -The Armorer

Phone Numbers? What Phone Numbers? And here's BellSouth's response, too. So...the media finally catches up with its own story. You mean, ask for comments from the companies cited in an anonymous leak before publishing the leak? How absurdly professional! - FbL

Is this GUY for real??? If so, we can tell them Arabs to stick it where it's warm and moist but the sun don't shine.

Oh and I do have an advise to them Iranians: If them Venezuelans offer them some slightly dented F-16's... RUN - RUN LIKE HELK!!!

For those of us familiar with the South American Bidnez Environment, there's a little story that goes like this:

- How can you tell a Venezuelan from a Colombian?
- Easy.
- If both a Venezuelan and a Colombian approach you, and offer to rent the ***how should I be polite*** "therapeutic" services of their little sisters, and upon paying them the going rate, The Colombian will be the only one to deliver on his contract. :@0 - BOQ

Not to be too academic, but Ed Driscoll points to a fascinating piece in Commentary that's had me slapping my forehead. Two thoughts come to mind: the irony of the switch in national party psychologies and the possible implications if the 21st Century's New McCarthyites** win the Congress or the White House. If you think Joe was bad...
Instapilot (H/T to Ed)

** The DNC, Pelosi and Reid plotting the impeachment hearings, and their Kossacks screaming for heads of all the "conspirators".

This just typifies the whole immigration argument for me. Why the bloody F*&^ was this woman compelled to travel Bog knows how many miles thru Mexico to come here with her F'n three year old only to have him f'n DIE hours into the country?
Is the problem that WE have made it too hard for them to come? Is it that we fenced up all the really easy ways to come into the country illegaly? B!@#$%*&! Fix their countries. Fix the pschizophrenic, corrupt, child pimping, F'd up beyod belief BS that exists in S. and Central America and this won't ever happen F'n again! That should be order of business item number one, and remain there until it is done. It isn't just getting into the US that exposes these people to dangers they should never f'n bloody have to. Trekkin' up thru Mexico is such a problem that they've had to create a special police unit to protect the migrants.
It isn't us F'n Blancos that's the problem. Not by a f'n long shot.
All the immigrants rights people should just STFU. Take the ire and shove it in the faces of those who deserve it(and that ain't us jokers up here in the US).
We didn't kill this kid. We didn't create the conditions under which this woman felt compelled to put her son in extreme danger.
Stupid f'n bastards. Change is needed. Letting everyone and anyone who wants to come to the US in ISN'T going to fix the problem that several hundred million in S. and C. America live in conditions that make an arduous and danger frought trip to the US border. It's far more deep and convoluted than that. Letting them all come at will just allows the real criminals off the f'n hook.
Point the finger where it belongs, and it isn't in the direction of those of us who want immigration reform.
Jesus. A three year old who didn't have to die did because some wanker would rather screw over anyone trying to make businesses grow unless that entreprenuer is willing to make sure the screwer gets all the finest things in life. What a f'n joke. I look at this and shake my head at everyone who tries to lay the blame the US for this womans problems and grief. We don't control the world, you know, despite what Owen says(we saved you a seat at the Castle Bar anyways, Owen). Jesus Christ. If I could shoot all the bureacrats who created this situation in S. and C. America I would. F'n bastards.

*A term of art from the artillery. Harassment and Interdiction Fires.

Back in the day, when you could just kill people and break things without a note from a lawyer, they were pre-planned, but to the enemy, random, fires at known gathering points, road junctions, Main Supply Routes, assembly areas, etc - to keep the bad guy nervous that the world around him might start exploding at any minute.

Not really relevant to today's operating environment, right? But, it *is*

The UAVs we fly over Afghanistan and Pakistan looking for targets of opportunity are a form of H&I fires, if you really want to parse it finely. We just have better sensors and fire control now.

I call the post that because it's random things posted by me and people I've given posting privileges to that particular topic. It's also an open trackback, so if (Don Surber uses it this way a lot) someone has a post they're proud of, but it really isn't either Castle kind of stuff, or topical to a particular post, I've basically given blanket permission to use that post for that purpose. Another term of art that might be appropriate is "Free Fire Zone".
