Terps Without Cover...How Does This Work?

I was reading Uncle Jimbo's post over at Blackfive.net, and I was utterly shocked to find that someone in the brass dept. has e-mailed his edict to the underlings overseas that no interpreters are allowed to wear scarves over their head or face anymore, even though it may cost them their very lives.

Why? Because we are at war, yet he wants everyone to dress up in uniform. BTW, it is against the US Military Code of Conduct to be out of uniform. Um...they are IRAQIS, not Americans, Sir.

If I have some awful misunderstanding, please inform me of it. I have read amazing articles about the terps both in Afghanistan from 'Bill' and in Iraq by writers/commentors at Blackfive. Surely there are some bad ones, but we get rid of them right quick. I do not understand why they should risk their very lives anymore than they already are just working with us!

Maybe it's because I'm just a civilian, but I don't think anyone of you agree with this decision either. If you do, please explain to me why. I'm open to being educated, but I'm not open to BS.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

4. Leaning Straight Up - A few scattered thoughts from around the web.
So as I read through my many daily reads, there were too many stories I wanted to talk about to do them all, so here is a quick mask up. Suppression of free speech in New York? Apparently. Specifically this is a buffer zone for protesters, and mand...

I am constantly frustrated by the number and type of individuals who are so ready and willing to dance in the blood of innocents (1755 UPDATE: It would appear as though Buck has taken down this post. Unfortunately, the internet...
6. The Pink Flamingo - Failure Should Be An Option.
Failure is the only way we, as humans can grow. If we have not known failure we do not know how to succeed. The very fact that Democrats and liberals cannot allow failure exposes their abject weakness and their abject corruption...
7. Leaning Straight Up - Off to the movies: Wall*E: Awareness, indoctrination or just a cute story?

I rarely go to theaters. It's not the prices necessarily, though 5 bucks for popcorn is still shocking. It is more that I enjoy being comfortable at home watching it. So usually when a big hit comes out, my particular take on it is about...
