The Repeated Meme: Any Farkers able to accurately pinpoint the year America became a nation of girly men?


No idea, after 2001 one thing I realized the only true men left in the USA who didn't crap their pants and run to daddy, were the hippies.

hardinparamedic: BarkingUnicorn: What happened to the first 23 fleets?

America! (fark yeah!)

Seriously, thought, since World War II, the only navies that have been able to engage in blue water combat with each other and survive have been the Russians and the Americans.


Britain and Argentina's navies didnt engage in combat? Someone needs to tell all those who died when their ships got sunk.

I think his point was the US and Russia were the only ones whose navies haven't lost hella guys trying to party like it's 1865 and we're using muzzle loading long toms.

"Well, the United States doesn't consider Al Queda to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by a public records search has demonstrated a weakness in the Twin Towers. But the approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight downtown and skim the buildings to the World Trade Center.  The target area is only two hundred feet wide. It's the upper floors of the towers.  The structural steel is vulnerable to high heat, and the fire insulation is not blast rated.  A precise hit will start a fire which should destroy the buildings. Only a precise hit will set off a chain reaction. The buildings are bomb-hardened, so you'll have to use hijacked airplanes".


All read in Dodonna's voice. That's amazing.

Smeggy Smurf: jso2897: When I find myself in a bar, and some little twerp 1/3 my size is aggressively baiting me into kicking his ass, and neither the barkeeper or any of the patrons present seem to find this behavior objectionable, I leave - and take my self and my money and my business elsewhere.
Your mileage may vary.

Pussy


Actually may have saved his life.  While visiting prisons, I met Tim, 5'6" 110 lbs, he was serving 30 years for killing three men with his bare hands in a bar fight.  He would go to bars aggressively picking fights with bigger men, only he knew he would win.  Tim was a competition black belt before going to far that fateful night.  True story.

It isn't the size of the guy, but if his guns are real.  Helicopter carrier is just a big ship with little to no real guns, not a little guy with real guns.

200 feet? That's impossible; even for a computer!


I used to bulls-eye Federal Buildings with my C-4 back home, and they aren't much bigger than 200 feet.

Disclaimer: The above was a joke, I have never bombed, and don't ever plan to bomb, any sort of federal property.  Or anything really.  Except fireworks, those I will totally explode.

For the girly men question how about when Truman wouldn't let bug out Doug finish off the norks while nuking bits of China?  How many millions have died of starvation since then and how many more will die before someone puts North Korea out of its misery?

I was going to go with "I used to bullseye Walmart scooters in my Trans-Am," but I see I've been beaten to the punch and then some.

The Repeated Meme: Maybe I should be telling some of you to get off my lawn, but I remember a time going toe to toe with the the Russkies, a country with an ACTUAL ability to destroy America, and everyone being quite manly about it.

Now, it's all "OMG teh Iranians are going to get us all!ELEVENTY!!11!!!!"

Any Farkers able to accurately pinpoint the year America became a nation of girly men?

When you used you military for a REAL police action.

WhoopAssWayne: fusillade762: Iran's state-owned news agency is the administration's mouthpiece?

The puffing-up of Iran as a viable threat started under Bush and has went on non-stop, seamlessly with Obama. The executive branch has published a constant stream of propaganda regarding their military capability for over a decade. It's bullsh*t, but like good propaganda, it never stops and always appeals to irrational fear. Yes, this is an .ir site, but these "Iran is a threat" stories that make it to the US just haven't stopped in 10 years, and it's all bullsh*t.


Pretty much like the whole cold war (fark you Dulles and your vested interests) - cept for the nuke part (which lets face it is a bit of a stalemate.)

Iran's not a direct threat to us, but they are a threat to our allies and can affect our interests in oil.


That's right.  After we sink their "fleet" we'll be stuck cleaning up the oil slick.  And nobody's interested in that.

Still saying January 20, 1993, when the first Baby Boomer took office, less than a month after the Soviet Union fell.  Between the end of a real threat and the switch from people who fought Hitler to those who dodge fighting the Viet Cong, America was wide open for full girlyization.
