I don't normally link humorous things to my blog, but DJ sent me this link and I fell out of my chair laughing. It is a rather light hearted look at French military (yes. you read that correctly) history. It is a rather simplistic look at our allies in Paris. It is a joke, so don't go getting all PC, and lame on me. Lighten up and try laughing.
On that note, I saw our interpreters today all sharing chai, and bread. They were telling stories, and just having a good time. Amazing, why you ask? Because they risk their lives every moment they are working for us. When they get time off they are all alone out there, and the men in black (the ones that cut heads off) work on this base, and they know who works for us. So, when they get time off they leave the base and go home. To put perspective on this last year 45 interpreters were murdered by evil, cowards.
Oh, one more thing. Booman is one of the good guys, he has and continues to be a good man, he moderates on his blog and keeps things civil. The super sleuth Oui, well the Darwin award for good detective work goes to him, hey I hear that Law and Order Crossing Guards is looking for a few good detectives (See how the Neo-cons condescend!!). LTC F, and the Command Sargent Major and I all had a good laugh over me not being in B'dad. So, if I'm not really here, who is this impostor and how did he get my user-name and password to blog? Am I referring to myself from the person perspective?
Where was I, ah yes the French, enjoy!
PS Yes, pictures of my vacation are coming to a photo album near you soon. GIve me a break, I'm in Iraq...or am I??
