    Gian,
    Anyone who knows his Dr. Strangelove can't be all bad. I take back any snide comments I may have made in the past about your posts here and in the MSM.

    It is all good.

    Strangelove for me is the greatest war movie of all time; Kubrick at his most very best even better in my mind (though some may legitmately disagree) than Full Metal Jacket.

    This is a really good thread you started; i keep getting kicks out of it, and those kicks dont "just keep getting harder to find."

    So what 60s rock group did that lyric?

    good to hear from you

    Major Kong, as they close the gap to their target, conducts additional readiness training with his B-52 crew:
    "Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff. "

    Clasic line as is Slapout's Major Kong on the ruskies.

    How about this one: "Shoot it you twit!! I cant do that, its private property." As the world is coming to an end Colonel Batgwano is worried about answering to the head of the Coca Cola Company.

    We could go on like this for days.

    Default More from Major Kong

    "Well, boys, we got three engines out, we got more holes in us than a horse trader's mule, the radio is gone and we're leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower why we'd need sleigh bells on this thing... but we got one little budge on them Rooskies. At this height why they might harpoon us but they dang sure ain't gonna spot us on no radar screen!"

    We could go on for days. We should go on for days.

    Isn't it curious, I always root for the '52 crew to get through even though it means the end of the world. I also root for Mandrake to succeed. Cognitive dissonance I guess.

    “Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed.” Darth Vader

    I think it is strangely appropriate.

    I don't recall this thread, which started and was last updated in 2007. So having spotted the below quote provided by Outlaw09 on the Syria thread, I have re-opened the thread.

    All the business of war, and indeed all the business of life,
    is to endeavor to find out what you don't know by what you do. By the
    Duke of Wellington
    A Google search found a list including this quote, but not the context and oddly the website is devoted to Napoleon, ah well.
