ok, so the last time i tasted a sause this yummy was origonal recipe kim-chi made by a korean freind's grandmother while i was stationed IN korea (USAF)

so, i got my jar a lil while ago but no idea what to do with it

finally dawned on me - 1/3 garlicky sauce and 2/3 psgetti sauce over fried steak-umms and elbow macaroni

yep, that'll do it every time [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

and the taste reminded me as i said, then i read this article: Army Raises Maximum Enlistment Age to 39

i sent off for a copy of my DD214 to see what my options are

any recruiters post here?

39...don't hold your breathe. They are trying to shove my friend Mike out. He's getting close to having enough years in for military retirement.

Garlic on the other hand is mmmmmmm. May have to introduce you to Kimchi Jon

When you're an old man, sitting on the porch and looking at the place where your legs used to be, I hope you think all that oil was worth it.

and if you think it's all about oil, or that's the reason i'm thinking of going back, then you're wrong

i'm not even going to start on just how wrong the thinking/opinion of "the war is for oil" is, this is the wrong thread for that

Druid, how could you be so insensitive and say the war was for oil?

It was about killing ragheads to make daddy proud.

Oil has nothing to do with it, silly...

...now, vast profits from the military-industrial complex - thems good wages!

Well, it used to be about WMDs, but we don't hear that excuse much any more.
Maybe it's about bringing Christianity to the heathens ....

George W Bush, the first lady, and Dick Cheney are all aboard Air Force One.

George W Bush looks down out the window, and says, "I could throw a $1000 bill out the window, and make somebody very happy."

The first lady smiles, and goes, "I could throw 10 $100 dollar bills out the window, and make 10 people very happy!"

Dick Cheney goes, "I could throw 100 $10 bills out the window, and make 100 people very happy."

The pilot snickers, turns to his co-pilot, and says, "show offs. I could fly this plane into a mountain and make BILLIONS of people happy!"

There's been so many reasons listed for this war that I've lost track of what the original excuse was. Something about Al Qaeda (which wasn't in Iraq until we invaded and imposed anarchy) and WMDs (which were never there in the first place) I think.

Ah well. We're there now. The only question is how soon can we get out.

I used to dream of visiting the Mid-East. There's some cool stuff to see. And Central Asia has some great peaks. But I wouldn't feel safe going there now or anytime soon. I'm not even sure my own country would let me back in. [Frown]

Wasn't the war about 9-11?

Or something to do with the French?

Not any time soon, if we did we would only be inviting attacks to the states.

And by staying beyond what's strictly necessary, you'll increase hatred from extremists, thus causing more attacks to the states, American citizens in foreign soil, and whatever they may consider a symbol of the United States - or the West, for that matter. My opinion is get out as soon as they have their constitution voted in, and wait for their government to call the peacekeepers for help. But definitely don't go back without an invitation.

Oh, and I believe the last justification was to get rid of a dictator and bring security to Iraq. Too bad it caused terrorists to take a foothold into Iraq, actually lowering people's security. In Saddam's time, people had to watch what they said, to whom, and where. Now they have to hope not to be around when the next car explode.

There are some good signs that we are making progress towards leaving, though. The successful elections seem to have helped, and I just read an article that attacks on US soldiers are down.

I wouldn't read too much into it, but it's a moderately good sign.

My grandmother works at the Oriental Institute (U of Chicago) as a hobby; does photography of artifacts, and takes archaeology classes with the Masters/PhD students. She went to Syria for a dig pre-9/11, but decided not to go back afterwards, for exactly those reasons (well, that and the hip replacement). Her professor, the guy in charge of the dig, had it worse ... he's a German citizen with US residency, but he had a hell of a time getting back into the US, even before 9/11. Now, after 9/11 and with all those Syrian stamps - I think Damascus kicked 'em out anyway, but I'm not sure. I do seem to recall that he used to replace his passport about once a year to limit the number of questions he got at customs.

I think he's even reduced the number of trips to visit his family in Germany, because traveling to Syria so many times put him on some sort of watch list. Major bummer for him.

Unless of course, you are an Iraqi.
