IIRC we aren’t even a signer of the Declaration concerning expanding bullets in the Hague Convention of 1899. soooo …. I guess we’ll “play by the international rules” until the stakes get so high we realize we have neutered our ability to wage war by following the rules that we never officially agreed to follow in the first place. Then like every nation backed into a corner, we’ll pull out all the stops to win. Victory at any cost. Hopefully we’ll never get to that point.
For folks who persist in telling me “It’s against the Geneva convention” I understand that’s what you may have been TOLD, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true. The Geneva Convention has fuck-all shit to do with the subject; it deals with treatment of POWs, wounded, and in-theater civilians. The Hague Conventions deal with the conduct/material of warfare (i.e. disallowed projectiles), but the venerable .50 isn’t among the restricted weapons. Ummm, .50 SASR, anyone? Educate yourself, because you just sound silly when you say it *smdh*
We are all getting old, Mikey. Join us in eating the cheesy pizza to drown out the pain.
I really like his quote on republics.
"Modest yet bold, liberal and fun-loving."
Naming Uruguay the country of the year in 2013, the Economist may very well have described the rising nation’s head of state, President José “Pepe” Mujica.
Known for his unusual frankness, fiery oration and bold leadership to turn ideas into action, the 78-year-old leader possesses and practices the very characteristics that many world leaders fail to emulate. He has also garnered international acclaim for his progressive policies, down-to-earth personality and simple presentation, which has earned him a reputation as “the world’s poorest president.”
"Come at me bro."

We’re all so proud of you!
Luckily, I believe in myself.
Spoon in hand, I embarked on my journey. A large plate of pasta was nothing compared to my will to eat this cheesy goodness.
I nearly lost my resolve here. The foe was tasty, but quite filling. However, I knew I could not quit now.
Soldiering onward I conquered the mighty mac and cheese. My carb intake for the day more than fulfilled, and my soul infused, I lay my spoon to rest with a happy heart.
