Hoo-ya!!!!! I can see it now, the Bronx and Brooklyn Companies of the
NYC Volunteers landing on the outskirts of Kabul to bust a cap in Pig
Rottin's ass. Talk about urban warfare... these homeboys know urban
warfare. And they get to keep any opium they 'confiscate'.
Along the lines of judo warfare you suggested, Mike, remember the
rumors about decoy Pig Rottins zipping around Afghanistan in identical
SUVs? Combine that with Taliban's presumably shitty long-range
communications, and you have the perfect insertion tool for our
special forces. Pretty soon you'll have the Talibs conditioned to
shoot at SUVs first and ask questions later.
