"ACU's are dumb as shit. God forbid the military uses, I don't know, a universal uniform. Something like a...BDU??? Wtf is that? No lets all be branch specific and piss money because we can (not really)."

"My friends who served in the reserved in Canada used to say that their kit came in three sizes: too big, too small, and not in stock. Who cares if the uniform is a bit ugly? I'm guessing the Nazis were the last to care too much about that…"

"Sounds an awful lot like excusing. We don't tolerate murderers in our own or others' ranks."

Vytautas replied to Trentington's discussion WW2 Romanticism
"Still a war crime, no matter your feelings of revulsion to the culprits. Soldiers do not get to personally decide who gets executed and when they do that, it is detrimental to the moral standing of the nation and a slap in the face of law and order.…"

"In the case of the Dachau Massacre, I am not so certain that anyone with even a mote of human decency within them, after seeing what those soldiers saw, would not have done the same.  Justice must be swift, effective, and terminal in some…"

"OK, basically you're saying the REMFs aren't in uniform these days.  Are you familiar with Omar Bradley's quotation on soldier's pay?  In Crusade in Europe, Eisenhower is fully on the record from 1942 onwards trying to…"

"Who along the chain has the most to loose and least gain...a 19 year old kid. War always was a good business opportunity but in recent times it is so blatant and the profit line is right at the soldiers back...not 5,000 miles up stream."

Native Son replied to Trentington's discussion WW2 Romanticism
"Neither efficiency nor insult.  Just the gov't trying to do it on the cheap.  The theory is that contractors don't get paid if they aren't working, and fiscally 'disappear' from the military payroll when not…"

""the point of the spear". It seems now that the point of the spear is there only to protect the gilded shaft of commercial interest visa vis Halliburton et al. The low paid point now protects the high paid "hired gun". Efficiency…"
