Rules of Engagement - Part III

US Air Force Rules
1. Have a cocktail.
2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
3. See what's on HBO.
4. Ask 'What is a gunfight?'
5. Request more funding from Congress with a 'killer' Power Point 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 make 13:45 tee-time.
10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have tax exemption.
..and still more..


  1. Navy Chaplains are now doing same-sex weddings, so Rules of Engagement Part IV could get pretty scary!

  2. ..IV, V, VI are coming up but nothing about gay weddings. Not to slander a "sister" service, but the old Belushi SNL sketch ("Manly Men!") keeps coming to mind.

  3. Isn't SAC an Air Force command? (rhetorical - I knew that) Dude, you ARE cynical.

    "Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive"

  4. You are SOOOOO right. I witnessed this myself.
