  1. Horrifying! There is nothing to show that any of the units involved had been properly trained in respecting diversity!

  4. The gays and blacks in my squadron didn't feel the need to play the victim card... they flew the missions right beside the rest of us hetero, white krackas and we did our jobs and just treated each other like regular human beings. Who would have thunk that such a thing could exist before "woke" came along?

  5. First Iraq War Joke
    Why is it easy to teach an Iraqi fighter pilot?
    You don't have teach them how to land.

    Dehumanize and kill the enemy, laugh at their misery.
    Not sure we are better off.

  8. In the tank battle the US soldiers over and over said they respected their enemy. They came to fight and died. I had no respect for the VC. Hit and run. When ya encountered NVA expect a battle. The NVA I had great respect for.
