Feelin' great... no gym today!
Body Pump on Mondays and Wednesdays... cardio Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays... days off - Friday and Sunday!
So... what else...? Oh... up to page 116 of "Into The Fire: A Firsthand Account Of The Most Extraordinary Battle In The Afghan War." Not good, folks... not good...
Bottom line, folks... our "Rules of Engagement" get our men and women killed. But, hey... I'll let the authors - Medal of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer Vietnam combat veteran and former DOD official Bing West - lay it out:
"The officers in the tactical operations center (TOC) could see on the map that the fire missions were being called in close to the farming compounds; those officers could not see the friendly troops who were dying. That's the problem - guys like that sit back and worry about protecting their rank more than taking risks and supporting the troops. Even worse, at the end of the day the troops not getting the support go home and have to deal with losing their friends while the officers get promoted and never have to see the results of their decisions up close." (See pages 102, 103, 104.)
Hey... speaking of the military... whatever happened to General Patraeus...? How'bout General Allan...? Hmm... perhaps they're hangin' with Leon Panetta and poor.... poor... poor "recovering" Hillary Clinton.
(Yep, folks... a real team of winners we've got running the country...)
Let's see... what else...? Oh! Decision time! Should I go see "Reacher" today at a matinee showing or take Mary over the weekend? (I'm leaning towards the later; she did enjoy Skyfall.)
Anyway... onward to today's newsbites!
