Problem Solved: After I wrote
Problem Solved: After I wrote my little rant about how silly it was to burden the military with all sorts of ridiculous environmental restrictions, one of our readers named Andrew contributed a comment that I thought was worth sharing =)…
“Here’s an amusing anecdote: I used to be in the navy, and one of my instructor down in Pensacola was a grizzled staff sergeant from somewhere in the deep south. HE told us that once, his company was using some deserted island for artillery practice, and some random environmental group protested because there was a population of wild goats on the island, which could be injured in the shelling.
The solution? Send a couple of Hueys with marines hanging out both sides with M-16s to machine-gun every goat on the island. No more goats, no more protests. Heh heh”
