Joe is back. With more.

Screw Fairness

I think the thing I like the most about this picture is... the cooler. And what it represents about US soldiery.

The thing that has kept enemies for over a century thinking we're weak and unable to fight.

We like our comforts. And we'll still rip your guts out, ascetic-boy.

Heh. I know a pair of Chit-hook pilots who deployed to the Stanbox with their trail bikes strapped behind their seats -- and one of my jobs back in '04 was to make sure *at least* one of the Conexes accompanying my old Battalion was packed to the rafters with Charmin.

One of these days, I'll tell you guys about the Great IV Corps TP Shortage -- which transpired immediately following the POTUS' declaration that "There are no American combat troops in the Mekong Delta."

The caption reminds me of something I used to tell the Hangar Tourists:

"Ideally, we'd engage tanks just outside the maximum effective range of their antiaircraft weapons -- they could probably see us, but they wouldn't be able to shoot us while we're putting missiles into them. It may not seem fair -- and it probably isn't -- but you don't pay me to fight fair. You pay me to *win*..."
