  • Rules of Engagement

    The armed services has carefully outlined rules for engagement of the enemy and the use of deadly force:


    Marine Corps
    1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
    2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
    3. Have a plan.
    4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
    5. Be polite. Be professional, but, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
    6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."
    7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
    8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
    9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
    10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
    11. Always win. There is no unfair fight.
    12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.


    Navy SEALs
    1. Look very cool in sunglasses.
    2. Kill every living thing within view
    3. Adjust speedo.
    4. Check hair in mirror.


    US Army Rangers
    1. Walk in 50 miles wearing 75 pound rucksack while starving.
    2. Locate individuals requiring killing.
    3. Request permission via radio from "Higher" to perform killing.
    4. Curse bitterly when mission is aborted.
    5. Walk out 50 miles wearing a 75 pound rucksack while starving


    US Army
    1. Curse bitterly when receiving operational order.
    2. Make sure there is extra ammo and extra coffee.
    3. Curse bitterly.
    4. Curse bitterly.
    5. Do not listen to 2nd LT's; it can get you killed.
    6. Curse bitterly.


    US ARMY RECON
    1. Slip silently into area of operations.
    2. Kill anything that moves or breathes.
    3. Sneak out of area of operations.
    4. Haul @ss to the LZ for the pickup.
    5 Call in heavy artillery and an air strike to cover up infiltration activity.
    6. Destroy all maps and reference materials.
    7. Play dumb when you return to firebase.


    US Air Force
    1. Have a cocktail.
    2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
    3. See what's on HBO.
    4. Ask "what is a gunfight?"
    5. Request more funding from Congress with a "killer" Power Point presentation.
    6. Wine & dine 'key' Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
    7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
    8. Declare the assets "strategic" and never deploy them operationally.
    9. Hurry to make 13:45 tee-time.
    10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict -- but close enough to have tax exemption.


    US Navy
    1. Go to Sea.
    2. Drink Coffee.
    3. Deploy Marines.

          All sounds about right.
          Those that forget history are condemed to repeat it.
          If you're going to be one you might as well be a BIG RED ONE

            They say the two most dangerous things in the Army are a Private with a bright idea and a 2nd Lt. with a map and compass.

              Inspired, thanks for the chuckle.
              Life is change. Built models for decades.
              Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
              I didn't for a long time either.
