re: Cop Shoots Wife in Addis - Darth_Vader
[quote]The first action you take to disassemble a glock is to pull the trigger so you can remove the slide.[/quote] Please tell me you don't seriously believe this. As for this cop, this was no "accident". But as usual, cops will look out for their own and he will walk. Hell, look at what ju...

re: Apocalypse WWI: debating the tactics - Darth_Vader
[quote]I'm aware, but the majority of officer casualties were the lieutenants and captains charged with leading their men in suicidal charges. When I say generals, I should say the field marshals coordinating the war, not the commanders of individual units. Still, as a common soldier, you would rare...

re: Apocalypse WWI: debating the tactics - Darth_Vader
[quote]You are constantly ordered to go "over the top" by distant generals[/quote] This is a bit of a myth. First of all, the officer corps in most armies actually suffered higher percentages of casualties than the enlisted ranks. In the British Army alone over 200 generals were killed, wounded...

re: If Russia Started a War in the Baltics, NATO Would Lose — Quickly - Darth_Vader
