military tactics?

I know you read them before but they are still right on


Marine Corps:
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 meet.
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 lose.
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.
Navy SEALs:
1. Look very cool in sunglasses.
2. Kill every living thing within view.
3. Adjust Speedo.
4. Check hair in mirror.

Army Rangers:
1. Walk in 50 miles wearing 75 pound rucksack while starving.
2. Locate individuals requiring killing.
3. Request permission via radio from "Higher Up" to perform killing.
4. Curse bitterly when mission is aborted.
5. Walk out 50 miles wearing a 75 pound rucksack while starving.

Army:
1. Select a new beret to wear.
2. Sew patch on right shoulder.
3. Change the color of beret you decide to wear

Air Force:
1. Have a cocktail.
2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
3. See what's on HBO.
4. Ask "what's a gunfight?"
5. Request more funding from Congress with a "killer" PowerPoint presentation.
6. Wine & dine "key" Congressmen, invite DOD & defense industry executives.
7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
8. Declare the assets "strategic" and never deploy them operationally.
9. Hurry to Ground Ordinance Launching Facility for 1445 tee-time.

Navy Rules:
1. Go to Sea.
2. Drink Coffee.
3. Watch a movie.
4. Deploy the Marines.

You know why they keep marines on navy ships?





















Sheep would be to obvious.

USCG - (A) - Go get "In-the-thick-of-it-daily!"; choose "ANY WONDERFUL OR CRAPPY/ UGLY, OR ULTRA CONFRONTATIONAL, ADRENALINE OR NASEA PRODUCING SCENARIO YOUR IMAGINATION CAN COME UP WITH; & DEAL W/ IT ON THE SPOT!", then go back to the "Boat" (378' or PB) & drink your coffee...! Then see above list marked (A)! (erh)

Sorry guys. There's some funny stuff here, but this ain't the comedy forum.

Serious tactics.... please!
