Day By Day: 2014-2015 Support Drive

I *know* we have Day by Day readers here; I’ve been a fan for years. Chris Muir, the author, has decreed the opening of his support drive– the strip is almost 100% reader supported– so go here, scroll down and show some love. (Yes, I’ve given. Based on the zestiness I see, I might have to give again! Who’d want to see an Op-For strip on DBD??)

Iraq– DuffelBlog Wades In

I didn’t think there was much to laugh at here, but I’ll be damned if DuffelBlog didn’t hit the X ring. At the end of the Iraq War — in a gesture of revenge — the U.S. abandoned thousands of Humvees in Iraq, an act compared to the Soviets seeding millions of land mines in Afghanistan, and with similar results once the Iraqis began to drive them. The Humvees were captured by ISIS on Tuesday after being abandoned by Iraqi soldiers unable to locate the vehicles’ keys, which they claimed the U.S. advisers who alerted them to this feature had never provided.

The study concluded the average military police officer buys three pairs of Truck Nutz, with most attaching one pair to their truck, one to their patrol car, and one above their desk. The study found this was the most efficient way to ensure they have balls in their face at all times. Any MPs out there care to […]

Donald Rumsfeld, A Documentary

I ran across the trailer for the Documentary: The Unknown Known.  The title of the documentary comes from a DoD briefing in February of 2002 when he famously said: “There are known knowns.”  It was directed by Academy Award winner Errol Morris whom also directed The Fog of War, which was an excellent documentary about the life of Robert McNamara. I’m unsure how I will take this, I grew up in the shadow of war following, 11 SEP 2001.  However, I will say I was well read, knowing of the Neo-Conservative movement and all of the folks that were in […]
