Monosyllabic Pedantry

Wednesday, September 02, 2009


Reading through some of Michael Yon's excellent accounts of being embedded with the troops in Afghanistan, you get a real feeling for what a bunch of unevolved animals they are.

On this day, an Afghan man showed one of these medics a rash on his arms, but the medic carried no such medicines out into the fighting. When medic Evans said she had no medicine, a young man picked up a big stone and was preparing to hit her. Rhian instantly pointed the rifle at the man who put down the rock.

Bless their hearts.
