Military Rules...

Provided me by a good friend and USMC brat. They generally seem to apply, and I am in a humorous mood today.

Military Rules

Marine Corps Rules:

1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.

2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.

3. Have a plan.

4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.

5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you

6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start
with a '4.'

7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life
is expensive.

8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral &
diagonal preferred.)

9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.

10... Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.

11... Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you

12... In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance,
or tactics. They will only remember who lived.

13... If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your
intention to shoot.

4. Ask 'What is a gunfight?'

5. Request more funding from Congress with a 'killer' Power Point

6. Wine & dine ''key' Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry

7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.

8. Declare the assets 'strategic' and never deploy them operationally.

As I said when I sent them to you, the Navy SEAL rules are suprisingly accurate. Well, hell, most of them are...and that is from someone show has scored at one time or other with every branch of the armed forces. Don't ask don't tell indeed....
Um. Not at the same time mind you.
