Fuck.  In that case, I didn't murder my ex-wife, I was shooting AT HER CAR.

Lt. Col. Barry Johnson didn't say how anyone arrived at the 52 percent figure, saying details would give "our enemy information they need to adjust their tactics and procedures to be more effective against us."

LOL what kind of a crack head does it take to look at the redefining of a word changing the way some stats look and then to think that the enemy will try to do things differently so they affect those worthless stats?

I mean duh! You could just redefine it again... Morons.

The intended audience for these fictitious reductions in murder are the voters of the USA. Hiding bad news is one of the chief tactics of this administration. Salmon getting killed? Abolish the department responsible for collecting numbers of pureed salmon. Chemical factories leaking toxic substances? Make evacuation plans secret to hide them from the likely victims.

We don't give a rat's ass what the Iraqis do, as long as they sell oil to the US.

We were taught in weapons training all the lawful uses of each particular weapon.  The 50-cal, the minigun, and the Vulcan were all illegal to use against personnel.  They were to be used exclusively against equipment and infrastructure.  Bunkers, fortifications, helmets, uniforms... wink wink nudge nudge.

Hmm... I never would have thought you weren't supposed to shoot people with a 50-cal. The head of security here has video of somebody doing just that over in the mid-east.

But, but, but, you can only kill me with little bullets! It's the rules!

Er, the mounted 50s, the ones on APCs IIRC.  It *was* a long time ago, and my memory may be flawed.
