  •  Well said, Marcos (13+ / 0-)

    As an ex-lightweapons infantryman (11B10), I appreciate that you highlighted the fact that even well-trained soldiers do not have immediate access to their weapons and ammo, even in combat zones.

    While on patrol in Vietnam, we were locked and loaded, on boogity-boogity (full automatic), and fingers on the triggers. However, when we were in stand-down at division HQ, our weapons were secured in a locked arms room.

    We all stand submissively before the global ATM machine network like trained chickens pecking the correct colored buttons to release our grains of corn. Joe Bageant
