Stuff and Things

I'd like to open with a video I found on Mudville Gazette (link to the right) of the Glorious Martyrs who Die for Allah. Praise Allah!

We'll follow it with some guys from 1st Brigade, 3rd ID being, well, Joes. They got an excuse to shoot the Mk-19, so they not only did so, but filmed it and stuck it up on the internet. I'm not so sure it was a good idea, but it looks like no serious OPSEC violations were committed, so I'll link to 'em.

There's a couple MNC-I stories I'd like to call attention to, one about IP Recruiting and one about Baghdad.

Compare and Contrast with the Mainstream Media. If these yoiks can't figure out how to write a negative news story, that's OK. You can write a news story more or less neutral in slant, and then the editor can slap a totally bogus headline on it that has nothing to do with the actual story. H/t to Castle Argghh! (link to the right) who linked to Fuzzilicious Thinking.

Also on Fuzzilicious Thinking is one of those stories making the rounds about military families. :) To be fair, not all our Joes comes out of homes like that, but most of the best ones do.

Finally, a heartwarming tale of an amusing prank which, the Royal Family swears, has NOTHING to do with Subaltern Windsor being sent to Iraq.

Thanks for the link!

Allow me to point out that the story isn't "Making the rounds." I mean, It's not a story that has been passed along and is several degrees removed from those who experienced it. It happened within the last two weeks at the USO where I volunteer and was told by our director at the yearly volunteer recognition event as an example of our local impact.

I want a MK19. They look perfect for concealed carry (in a van).
