    How to use your equipment

    Don,t know how old this is ?But it made me chuckle !!!!

    General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
    Read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.
    Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have to love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.
    In a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military Headquarters.

    So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

    We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

    Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

    I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

    Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?


    I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

    But you're equipping them to become violent killers.


    Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

    The radio went silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, this interview was over.

    The other old classic interview with a US General was after the World Trade Center incident. He was asked if he felt that he could ever find any room for forgiveness for these terrorists and their like. He replied that he was a Soldier and didn't do forgiveness, he said that this was a matter between them and whatever heathen God they worship however he was more than happy to help arrange the meeting!

    A sniper was asked if he felt anything when he killed the enemy and he replied, "Just the recoil."
