21. I can play "more combat than thou" with damn near anybody...

 

Obama lost me during his first inauguration, when he didn't whip out a cell phone right there and tell the JCS to get our people out of that shithole. NOW.

Blow it in place if it doesn't fly or roll, and get the fuck out!

"skin in the game"....? Hey... we knew the job was dangerous when we took it. We also knew that policy decisions are waaaaaay above our pay grade.

You just let your CinC and the State Dept worry about the political stuff.

The Pentagon is full of logistics weenies.. they can figure that out... or the CinC will shitcan them and find somebody who can.

And the military side..? The troops don't have C-4 anymore? They can't blow their unused gear in place? They can't grab their rations and their battle rattle and climb into trucks/planes/MRAPs/whatever?

Let's hang around there until we lose more people. Let's hang around until the Taliban get stronger and attack our units as they try to leave in 2014.. or 2015...or 20wheneverthefuck.
