"Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door."

The USO has spent 65 years in the service of the members of our armed forces. Yesterday, Chuck Norris visited several bases in Iraq, the USO's press release.

USAF Senior Airman Adam Warden of Mound, Minnesota, jokes as Chuck Norris has him in a choke hold during a stop at the mess hall at base in Kuwait.

There have been a number of "Chuck Norris Facts" circulating on the Internet in recent years. They tend to be absurd and very humorous. I've read about "Chuck Norris facts" appearing in Iraq. I know from a friend that the Marines of a certain base in Iraq were very excited that Walker would be coming to visit. In early October, TIME magazine published a letter from a Marine intelligence officer concerning Iraq. There was a "best Chuck Norris moment" in that letter.

Visits such as this must have a tremendous positive impact on troop morale.

This post will remain at the top of this blog for the rest of the day.

“Visits such as this must have a tremendous positive impact on troop morale.”

I wonder if Herr Rumsfeld and Vice-Shah Khalilzadeh were singing with Walker to the tune of Wagner’s Walkyrie.

It’s the Germanic cum Indo-Iranian “Aryan” jingoistic thing.

Cleans up a soldier’s mind.

Keeps the cannon fodder “focused”…

I remember the USO show that came to Tal-Afar when I was deployed there.

The 101st Airborne Division Band did some really shitty Eminem and AC/DC covers, pronouncing the lyrics like whiteboys from the Midwest. This was followed by about two hours of Bruce Willis and the CEO of Krispy Kreme dancing around on stage and playing harmonica. I got bored, so I went back to my tent and jerked off.

Are you real?
Beautiful prose
Irony in high dose
And your blog shines
Lighting for troubled times

Shol, thanks for coming by -- so to speak. Normally, I don't post crude comments. But, a Screaming Eagle ought to be granted some leeway.
