    and they never throw away a beer bottle.....


    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Right now, in Paris, there are a bunch of Frenchmen desperately trying to figure out how they were overrun by these guys.

    I knew a lot of people who thought the IDF were Gods of War until they actually worked with Egyptian or Arab military units, their appraisals of it became much more realistic after that.

    To be fair, the IDF is probably as good as any western army, with elite units that rival ours, but the Arabs do suck at conventional war. Their greatest strength is the major weakness of western democracies, which is insurgencies.
