Time to get serious about the War on Terror
We remember freedom.
Yes Mike,particularly those over 60 guys with investments in the military/industruial complex .
I suspect we will be needed right where we are at.
Why I posted this was I got up to pee at 3;30 am and wandered on the internet and found this article. what I should really be doing is manning an out post in Afghanistan or some other stan and making the world safe for banksters and presstitutes?
The article was from a Canadian firearms site, so how much credence does that have. Sally Forth us old bastards, just as long as I don't have to run up that hill, where's my Humvee?
I like the idea ,where can I sign up....currently all I see is a long slog into a crotchety,creaky ,forgetful oblivion......I might as well go out pretending I'm still useful......
The problem with that is that they would send us somewhere where would not be useful to ourselves and others but only to them.
just another day in Iraq or Syria
One thing for sure;
Put three of us on guard duty, and at least one would be up peeing most of the time.
While at the start the idea of drafting all 60 year old males was a farce. Considering the recent Vegas shooting and the fact that 2/3rds of all gun deaths in America are the result of suicide and that many of these suicides are ole farts, it seems that drafting old men is a twofer.
One is that these ole fart men in all likelihood will never collect a social security check or burden the medical system with prostate cancer etc. Two these old bastards and it has to be retroactive to all judges, congress, presidents, damn anyone in the system is required to serve. I'm not talking about serving in meals on wheels, but grunting up that incline with an M4 in hand or at least riding in a Humvee or personnel carrier.
I've talked this over with some of my friends and they say hell yes let's see the best of military transport that they'd bought for decades and see if they can get us close and personal to the Taliban ISIS, whomever is fn with us and see if I can put my years of marksmanship to value.
Time to take the bulls by the horn Baby-boomers and show the metal of the last bit of manhood you might have, unless you are taking steroids and then who knows maybe another 60 years.
