I'm a soldier of the Cold War, when the FAL was king and the Soviets were the enemy.
The ragheads were keeping the Soviets busy in some far away sand pit called Afghanistan, and we cheered them on.
Except when they blew up our guys in Beirut and in other places.
We were too stupid to see the truth. Just like now.
We bought the Party Line fed to us, yet in the next breath wondered how the Russians could be so stupid to buy into theirs.

I bought the Party Line on 9/11, right up until the moment the panzers rolled across the Iraqi frontier. Then I knew I'd been had.


Hard, cold look at reality right there.
Warning to all FalFiles members who may ever want to do business with me on the FF Marketplace:

I support any person who steals 3% from PP by conducting business transactions as Family & Friends transactions. This may impugn my character, and, according to Mark Graham of Arizona Response Systems, means that I'll lie, cheat, and steal from people here *if* there is anything about you that I don't like - or possibly even disagree with.

You may not want to do business with me. In case you forget this, this warning will appear in any future advert in the Marketplace. Consider yourself duly warned.
