All right – bring it in, horseshoe up.
Meach – take a knee, I need you to pay attention.
Well, it seems that Hajji has yet again decided to fuck with an ally. This time they targeted a bunch of little girls at a concert. What kind of sick fuck does that? Unfortunately, the powers-that-be over there seem to think that following the profound teachings of Katy Perry and thus COEXISTING with these savages will make it all better. I have news for you – they DO NOT want to COEXIST. They want to separate your infidel head from your body.
Regrettably, for the British Army, Law Enforcement and Intelligence agencies, their government is far more concerned about hurting the tender feelings of non-combatant hajjis and their lily livered Leftist allies that they have those poor bastards fighting with their hands tied and exposing them to danger for little result. Much props to our British Army brothers and the rest for dealing with that bullshit – hopefully they haven’t made you a bigger target. We remember Fusilier Lee Rigby and the rest this weekend – and hope you do too.
Combine this with the ongoing and spreading war with IS, AQ and the Talib – and you gotta think things are getting testy. Hopefully the Brits (and the Western World at large) will stop playing patty cake with these animals and start treating them as spies and saboteurs under the LOAC instead of treating them like common criminals with full Constitutional protection. Maybe we should take a look at how Duterte of the Philippines is treating them…Jes Sayin.
All that being said – remember that in spite of this being a 3-day, and all of the misinformed peeps out there conflating Memorial Day with Veterans Day – shit can get sideways anywhere – and often does when you least expect it. Keep your head on a swivel.
About those civilians (and even some military) who mix up the holy days of the US Military… this is just a suggestion: Give ‘em a break. While all of us think, reflect and remember our fallen brothers and sisters from the late wars and all the way back to G-Dub’s boys in the Continental Line, remember that most Americans think Cinco De Mayo is Mexico’s Independence Day and “can’t even” when it comes to the Constitution. So instead of being indignant and flipping the asshole switch when they wish you a “Happy Memorial Day” – use it as a teaching moment and try to educate your fellow citizens in a way that doesn’t make ‘em think we are all douche nozzles.
So set a place at your table for the fallen, have a drink in their honor and toast them TIL VALHAL! We cannot let our glorious dead be forgotten. So with that – you know the deal with the strippers. Make sure you don’t come back with a wife named after a luxury sedan.
Don’t do illegal drugs – and remember that MP K9 unit likes to hang out at the gate on the weekends. (see also: strippers and blow)
If you and the missus start to get into a fight, just leave. No reason to go all Hajji and beat her, we are better than that.
Don’t drink and drive. That shit is UNSAT,
Meach – Go grab those two rucks out of the orderly room. They are full of flags that you and I are gonna place on graves at the National Cemetery.
PT is a 0630 Tuesday – so you bastards stop drinking by 1800 Monday, I hate the smell of puke and beer sweats when we are running.
Platoon Sergeants, take charge of your Platoons and get them out of my sight.
1SG Moriarti – OUT!
