And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Nobody who has been at the receiving end of artillery fire will ever dispute that.ReplyDelete
Actually, it's "King of Battle", but it's an easily understandable mistake, depending on where you are in respect to the impact area.ReplyDelete
Haha! I like "God" better, that's why I use it. That one certainly looks intimidating. I dunno how anyone could survive a solid artillery barrage, and even if you did, you'd be a zombie.Delete
The Russians call artillery the 'God of War'. 'King of Battle' is the American term.ReplyDelete
And the Russians do LOVE artillery (tube and rocket).Delete
I must be part Russian, as I feel the same way.Delete
Probably best to release the gun tube travel lock first. Combined with computer link up and GPS, the capability today is awesome. The Germans (and others I'm sure) can have a unit on the move, that can then stop, unlock, traverse and elevate all gun tubes, fire, and be on the move again in less than 60 seconds. They can coordinate this with other units also on the move, and all rounds will impact the target at the same time.ReplyDelete
And it was found to be superior to our own Paladin, and cheaper, with longer range, but did we buy it? Noooooooooooo...Delete
Well, silly you. Of course we didn't. It was much more important to abandon our tired 1911A1's in favor of Beretta.Delete
Yeah I know, the chronology doesn't work. It's just my snarky way of saying I heartily agree with your sentiment. I might be tad biased as well. My MOS was 45B--Small Arms Repair.
