Izzit just me, or is defense-related news kind of quiet these days? Pentagon seems quiescent, no generals getting court-martialed, services adjusting to new chiefs and such. Airstrikes in Middle East but that’s been going on 4ever.
I always liked the scene in the movies where the younger soldier or cowboy happily comments, “Pretty quiet tonight,” and the more seasoned one waits a beat, grimaces, and replies, “Yeah, too quiet.” Then an arrow or bullet flies overhead.
