    Carry on.
    Don't worry folks, I've already given CC some infraction points. I wrote them down on this little pad of paper I have right here at my desk.

    Yeah, let's spend more money on social engineering vice more equipment that could save lives on the battlefield. That's a good common sense approach to running a military.

    Don't act like for one second the procurement and acquisition crowd is one bit interested in "saving lives on the battlefield". It only took them two years to get armored vehicles to Iraq.

    Remember the Crusader? That's what the ACQ folks are about, sarge.

    Canning troops up in PC's isn't what I would call, "saving lives on the battlefield". It's been my opinion early on that dismounted patrols would have saved hundreds of lives. A rifleman can't fight mounted and a squad can't mass firepower, nor create interlocking fields of fire from inside a PC, sir.

    I know my troops wouldn't have been couped up in an IFV, providing the enemy with a massed target, waiting for some electronics goo-roo with a one-five-five round and a cell phone to blow them up.

    I agree 100%, but that's how it was chosen to fight the war that you love and support so much. Trust me, I had to live it. I hated driving down the road instead of walking it made NO sense what so ever. They eventually pulled their heads out but not until thousands had been slayed inside of the death traps on wheels. I just don't want you pretending that our procurement and acquisition systems are about supporting the Soldier or saving lives. They aren't. They are about getting rich.

    Crusader? Nighthawk? New battleships? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Not for troops.

    Where the hell did that **** come from?

    The point I was making, is that the next time the Liberals start whining about soldiers in field lacking equipment, stop and think about the new billets that had to be constructed to accomodate their agenda.

    I was an 11M, remember? I know all to well about water coolers that we couldn't drink from, ammo we couldn't fire, amphibious vehicles that would probably sink and fuel pumps that failed and could only be replaced by sending the track on a year long journey back to depot maintanance to have it replaced. It couldn't be done at the unit level, because the turret had to be taken completely off the vehicle.

    Trust me, I have no illusions about how the system works.

    Ya'll still having fun with those vampire pumps?

    It's strange how gays never bring it up, only the conservatives. That is why I was saying, nobody talks about gay sex in public as much as conservatives do. It's funny how obsessed you guys seem to be about it.
