I'd Rather Have a Stryker.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it distressing (and curious) that we are "fighting the war on terror" mainly with the lightweight HUMVEE, which was designed solely as a replacement in the 1980s for the venerable JEEP? And we wonder why we're getting our ass kicked by roadside IEDs?

Somehow I think our military hardware buildup under Reagan was squandered on S&L bailouts. And who's left holding the bag? The underequipped shlub in the field. Sweet planning, eh? Rumsfeld at least needs to start watching reruns of Rat Patrol.

EXPOSÉ: THE “CHRISTIAN” MAFIA
Where Those Who Now Run the U.S. Government Came From and Where They Are Taking Us

By Wayne Madsen

After several months of in-depth research and, at first, seemingly unrelated conversations with former high-level intelligence officials, lawyers, politicians, religious figures, other investigative journalists, and researchers, I can now report on a criminal conspiracy so vast and monstrous it defies imagination. Using “Christian”groups as tax-exempt and cleverly camouflaged covers, wealthy right-wing businessmen and “clergy” have now assumed firm control over the biggest prize of all – the government of the United States of America.
