Lighten up, Francis. I was talking to LW, not you. A man who: 1. Has never served. 2. Has had bigger breasts than mine. His opinion? Doesn't matter. Nick gave him two options: 1. Suck it up and lead 2. Be a bitch about it. He chose #2. With ZERO time at the tip of the spear. End of discussion.

"Your opinion on women in the infantry doesn't matter." http://rhinoden.rangerup.com/your-opinion-on-women-in-the-infantry-doesnt-matter/ Just a hunch, but that might be why you're hearing crickets in the comments.

Is this Blackfive or Facebook? Since when do B5 authors post name-dropping selfies? Give the "Subsidize My Life" spam a rest already.

"The Obama administration has probably killed more "bad guy" jihadists than anyone since the Brits wiped out half of the Sudan." Amen, bro! And Michael Yon has more combat experience than 90% of our GWOT Veterans. #revisionisthistory

Yes, she's a jackass, crap weasel, etc... for leaving him that voice mail. However, I think it's premature to champion Sgt Morgan. If you read the entire article, you'll see she wrote a 16 page response to his attorney that indicated other problems, to include not qualifying financially and problems with prior landlords.

And about all I can add is: Brass ones. Big. Ass. BRASS. Where do we get such men...

And you, my dear, just highlighted my point: Any woman who not only graduates from Annapolis but successfully completes sub training is hardly "average" and not likely to be more concerned about her hair and nails than she is about her shipmates and her boat. ;-)

Thank you. Thank you very much. I've been crackin up all day at the image of a flustered Deebow, chauffeur cap askew, holding off the pack of Fembots in the back seat with one hand while frantically working his Tom Tom in the other --eyes glued to its screen, proving that even if you give him a window AND a sunroof, he still doesn't know where the hell he is. But mostly what I'm laughing at is that he actually tried to spin that anecdote into +hit points for his man-card. Deebow, you are without a doubt, one of my favorite knuckle-draggers.

Dude, seriously? It takes the average man 1:18 to parallel park a Mini Cooper? I can parallel park a Ford F-250 in under 60 seconds. I can also get in and out of both the head and the shower faster than most men (have a blast with that one). But then again, I wasn't raised by the average man --a former TM on the Razorback. He also taught me how to navigate with a map there Mr. Tom-Tom the Kitty Limo Driver. Why is it you Soldiers can't get from point A to B without electronic coordinates FFS? And then 9 times outta 10, despite the fact that you've lived in Fayett'nam 8 years to my 3, you still get lost and have to call me to figure out where the f*ck you are? BTW, is the difference between reliance on the Tom Tom vs Onstar the same as playing with "Action Figures" as opposed to "Dolls"?

No orangutans. But chatter indicates Mikey has bear blood on his lips.

Ah shucks... I just have a devious (deviant?) mind and a way with copy/paste.

Careful, he'll accuse of you ideating his demise. And I should clarify my use of the verb "cover": He's going to return to CONUS and win the border wars all by HIMself by covering the entire border with his bulbous buttocks.

Oh but haven't you heard? He's going to come back to CONUS and win the border wars singled handed. Gonna cover U.S. vs Mexico he is.

Oh. MY! "McChrystal had no method. I didn’t see any method.... For his antics, General McChrystal got called to the main office. The White House. Soon, Petraeus was standing there with President Obama. I was watching in rapt amazement, and I pulled out my BlackBerry and I emailed Petraeus right when he was standing there with Obama getting the job."

"People like Hanson are key in the sense that prostitutes in Colombia are key. Guys in key places use their services, but would prefer to keep it in the dark." I take it back, that was some hands-free typing. Pongo must have been taking dictation.

Huh. Maybe he's testing the waters for a new career in writing ghey pr0n scripts? "By stroking milblog thought-leaders, the military can harness a pack response with little input. Their ink is attainable with simple favors and a little bit of attention." How's the blocking on this scene work? Jimbo in the harness? Matt in chaps? CJ threatening to ink them both with his pistol bayonet if they don't give him some attention?

A strong indicator that Yawn typed that dispatch one-handed: "Jim Hanson, sometimes called 'Uncle Jimblow,'... is tightly and publicly associated with... Matt Burden and CJ Grisham."

Seriously? I am truly disappointed. Maybe I need to be patient and wait for some more grunts to weigh in. I was expecting not just flash-bangs and viral vid's but duct tape and homo-erotic Polaroids. Nothing says "Happy Birthday Mein Furer!" like a bunch of half-naked Nazis taped butt to nut. Except maybe having Rupaul explode outta your cake in Eva Braun drag.

Lemonade. Out my nose. One of your finest, Deebow. What are these "add ons" of which you speak? And hey man, it could have been worse. The whole detail could have hit the town in super heroes costumes: http://www.rangerup.com/supai.html

Ohhh what fond memories I have that are attached to that ship! I grew up in Alameda, CA, when she was still home-ported there. Her con tower was a regular fixture on my horizon. Many, MANY fond memories of growing up near a NAS but I think my absolute favorite "Big E Moment" has to be watching "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" the night it opened in our wee 2 screen theater. Chekov's announcement of, "Admiral. We have found the nuclear wessel.... And Admiral... it is the Enterprise!" was met with the raucous response that only Sailors can provide. Good times. *sniff*

"It cheers me somewhat to think of Karzai's last moments as the Taliban drag his sorry ass out of his office and hang him." I strongly suspect that is what lies at the heart of this demand for a public trial. He's plotting his endgame, exit strategy and kissing Taliban ass is part of it. He's neither stupid nor devout; he's utterly corrupt and motivated by self-interest.
