In 1917 the Doughboys of the American Expeditionary Force went to France to fight the "Huns". The greatest generation went to war in 1941 to save the world from the "Nazis". In the Jungles of Vietnam we chased after the elusive "Charlie". Now, in Iraq our troops are locked in battle with the "AIF" or the dreaded "AQI". Somehow it just doesn't seem too cool to scream out in battle, "Die you dirty Anti Iraqi Forces bastard!" or "Take that you damn Al Queda in Iraq goon!" Now I'm not advocating racist names or slogans for our enemies, but come on, at least give us something cool to call them, the guys in Afghanistan at least have the "Taliban", that's semi evil sounding. How do I tell my grandkids that I fought against "non-compliant anti government indigenous personell" or "military age males"? Hell, couldn't we call them "Goobers"? I know that would probably offend Andy Griffith show fans, but come on, give us something to work with here.
Most of what I post is stuff that I've found while trolling the internet or stuff that friends and family email to me, if you find something that I've grabbed from your site and I didn't credit you, please let me know and I will add the appropriate credit or remove the item if you wish. I'm not trying to take credit for other peoples work, I'm just trying to share what I think is funny, amusing, cool or whatever with everyone else. Thanks. Geoff
