Grrrr.....

OK – another bitch about the Army…

It is hot here – REALLY freakin’ hot –

In March I started trying to requisition the new Army Combat Shirt (ACS) for my troops.

http://www.massif.com A GREAT piece of kit that is not only fire resistant, but keeps you cool under all of that body armor…a double lifesaver where we brave temperatures that are over 100 degrees all summer long – sometimes as high as 145 or 150. All while preventing flash burns when we get blown up.

Wow - Britain goes further down the Red Rabbit Hole...Give them an Inch...`

They take a mile - In the UK - a few years ago, they banned handguns and most long firearms -

A year ago they banned the carry of any pocket knife with a locking blade or ANY knife over 3 inches - In the last week they have called for the expansion of "Police Powers" to "stop and search" *ANYONE* that the police "think might be carrying a knife" - the same police that are spread so thin that it can take up to 15 minutes to respond to an emergency call when there are no other calls "stacked"

Couple that with rampant welfare state entitlement mentality, a poor public health system that causes many Britons to buy private insurance anyway and 50% income taxes - as well as 17.5% sales tax...and you get a firm look at what the nanny state begins to look like.

NOW - you must fill out a questionnaire to hold someone responsible for the legalities of your rubbish bins...

"The named individual faces 100 pound fines and a criminal record if their household then puts the wrong rubbish in its wheelie bins, puts them out too soon, or puts them in the wrong place."

Jimmy Carter is an idiot.

Apparently the left-thinking, horsefaced, Nobel prize winning hero, Jimmy of Arabia has shown his anti-semetic left/equal/HOPECHANGE face in public again.

Apparently he thinks that Iran, who has vowed to destroy the evil Zionist state of Israel, is "entitled" to nukes just because Israel has "150 Nukes" - which BTW - I imagine is supposed to be a secret number that the Prez (or former Prez) is not supposed to disclose (that whole NDA that we with clearances sign)- Indictment anyone?

Of course the UN is even concerned (shocker!)

damn it man -

Anyway - I am still fighting the Websense daemons - slipping through to the secreted Valhalla that is the Kaffir! - wish me luck - as I am posting while only able to view rudimentary text - and no images - hence very few pics (sadly to include the Propaganda and Pinup of the day)

All of this censorship and groupthink has me wanting to covert -

To Marxism - I am sure that the world would be a better place if we could not dissent against the dissent - an uncomfortable reaction to an inconvenient truth??- all we have to do is get across the rickety viaduct of political activism to Marxism. Viaduct? Because if there is water we can swim...or fly...

Tonight at dinner -

We were sitting around talking about our favorite movie babes - and this FNG starts to rattle on in an impossible drawl about this girl...that was in that movie...you know...the one who was in Le Femme Nikita (The TV Show) - and how she was hot...(BTW - Peta Wilson...PETA?!?! heh...and she is wearing fur! LOL - or is that the Grinch wearing fur?!?!?)

"Cuz you know, when she smiles...her mouth curls up on the ends all pretty...you know like the Grinch."

Rain....

Yes, it rains in Baghdad. HARD. And it is raining now - Big fat rain drops - not little bitty stinging rain.

Three problems come with the rain -

One - we end up with more missions

Two - it turns all the fine dust into slickery-stickery mud - *yuk*

Three - Hajji doesn't want to play cuz he will get his man dress wet (h/t MAJ R)

Today has been quiet...

Busy paperwork busy.

*sigh*

When my raucous schedule permits, I will triumphantly (slash) abundantly return to the chateau for my ruby-encrusted pocketwatch. I have plans tonight, however, but I will, furthermore, heretofore, be back on morrow next. Please tell Adelaide that the poached eggs were tremendous.

 Forever Young,

I almost forgot - 60 years of Independence for Israel

Here's to you Israel, for 60 years as a productive representative republic - commonly (and erroneously) referred to as a 'Democracy' - The ONLY one in the Mid-East (unless we have our way in Iraq) -

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our maligned and misunderstood - but staunch ally! We love ya, and as long as you keep kicking the shit out of Muslim fascists we will ALWAYS love ya! You have fought and died for the cause from the moment you were born...and we have only just joined the fray - I only hope that our people can endure for as long as you have already!

peace be upon you Israel!

We were providing protective services @ the Ministry of Veteran's Affairs - and they had a few nice examples of German and British WWI and WWII era rifles hanging on the wall...I tried to get some pics but the lights on the plexiglass case front precluded any of any quality....

Catch you on the flipside...

Mother's Day Memorial for fallen Soldiers

yesterday we went to a Church in downtown Baghdad to provide security for the event. This is a Christian Church in the middle of the war torn city... These good people risk their lives every day to go to work...and again on Sunday to worship their God. How many of you would do that?

Movie Reviews

WAR *** - With Jet Lee and Jason Stratham (sp?) you would think that this would be *da bomb* - nah...not really...but worth a watch.>>

3:10 to Yuma *** - Not too bad - Solid B Western.>>

Charlie Wilson’s War ***** - Damn...does TH know how to pick a movie or what? GREAT FLICK!>>

My Boy Jack! **** - About Rudyard Kipling, his son and his family in dealing with the boy going off to fight the Hun in WWI. Very good flick.>>

The Four Horsemen * - An overt attempt to propagandize the events that changed the lives of a group of young Marines. Not only was the acting, props and realism terrible...so was the not so thinly veiled propaganda.>>

The Mist ** - Should have been a great flick - was almost...although the movie was strayed so far from the book...eh...well...SK is a douche bag anyway.>>

Hitman *** - Decent B action flick - definitely played strictly into the video game loving crowd...not bad.>>

Where are you Mook?

Quiet since early this mornin' ....hmmmm.....methinks with the good weather and a few Hellfires, your boys are on the losing end of this little fray -

Or perhaps were you terrified of the ominous...BEAR HOLDING A SHARK!?!?!?

/images/180px-bearholdingshark.png

BTW, we will be out lookin' for your boys very soon...and I have a little suprize in store for 'em (hint: it is bigger than a bread box, it is black in color, it has an ACOG and PEQ15 on top and I keep it ready just for you!)   Remember - God created all men - BUT - Sam Colt made them equal.

Hmmm....liking the ACOG vibe -

Hello to all of y'all! This week has been a bit nerve wracking - lots of IDF and lots of strangeness out in the red - (Missed me again Mookie!) -

It looks like the Cav boys with the ....errrmmmm....help....of the IA and IP (collectively known as the ISF) are slowly stomping Mookie's ass for him - 1 block at a time -
