"Don’t expect the enemy to cooperate in the creation of your dream engagement."
Sigh...what could be worse than — FINALLY! —donning full battle rattle, firing up the APCs, putting real bullets in the machine gun magazines, slapping butt and getting all weepy over that endangered, embattled symbol of America, the Desert Tortoise, reveling in the dream of being the very first American Stoßtrupp to to put hot lead downrange in support of the New American Order, and — DARN IT! — before you can turn those First Amendment Zone-be-damned Tea Bagger pussies, political dinosaur ranchers, recidivist cowboys, BS militia poseurs and pathetic Bushie Constitution supporters into mass piles of cooling meat, you get the STAND DOWN!
Rare actual image of endangered Desert Tortoise
And not just your regular "Stand down," but the, "Turn your butts around and run don't walk back to the bases stand down!" And when you get back to the bases you discover to your horror that instead of doing the Will Of The Lightbringer to pluck the plucky Jurassic reptile from the The Big Sleep, it turns out you were apparently sent out to rain death on your fellow citizen and not a few scrawny cows in support of another under-the-table "green energy" behind-the-Beltway land deal with...wait for it...wait for it...those rollicking Red Chinese and that poster boy for Washington sleaze, Harry Reid! Cue the Benny Hill theme music!
In the midst of this Clown Show, I have a serious question...is there anyone out there who doubts for one single second that, given the green light, the Feds would have pulled the trigger? On their fellow American citizens? Over a perceived spat between cows and turtles?
Think about that.
