    But that's not what's happening. As it stands, anyone with a license in some states, or just plain anyone in other states, can get their hands on one.
    Oh no, we can't discriminate. If I can have X because I'm in the military then therefore Joe Blow across the street who is not in the military must also have equal access to X.

    Alright, let me go get it.

    Edit incoming.

    Right, found it.

    It is, in the paper-back edition, page 140, chapter 17, "the Manhunt", and it is from a senior US official from US Central Command.

    At any rate, it's also a fantastic book, so I recommend it to you for more reasons than proving I'm right. XD

    Believe me when I say I've no idea how to do that. But really, if you did mean it, you ought to check it out -- anyone interested in the Afghan War will like it.

    By the way, I edited my post with page number and source.

    ....you take a picture of the page with your phone, send it to a website you can store pics on or to your desk-top, upload it to you DP album, post it here. It's easier than I make it sound.

    I'm not going to post a bloody pic, I've no idea how. I can quote the line, though:

    "They always say afterwards that the dead were enemy, or they went for the gun. But the reality is every young man ends up dead.... The routine is something like this: Go to the gym, pump some iron, jump into a helicopter in the dark, jump out and kill all males of fighting age, and then go back, get a bit of kip, and then back to the gym, pump some iron."

    I don't mean to be rude or forward, but if you are in Philadelphia for a few days then get off the stupid computer and experience the city and the people. Enjoy.
