Music: A Marine Christmas Song

A hat tip to the guys at SOFREP for finding this one. Merry Christmas to all of those contractors and military that are deployed, and to their friends and family keeping the home fires burning.

Merry Christmas to all of my readership, FB fans, authors, veterans, PMSC’s, associations, academics, journalists, think tankers and fellow bloggers out there whom have all contributed to the discussion about the ever evolving world of the private military and security industry. –Matt

Funny Stuff: The G4S Power Ballad!!–Securing Your World, By Jon Christopher Davis

This is hilarious. In my alerts, this just popped up and I had to share. Although if you listen to the words, I kind of doubt that the message had time to sink in with the G4S managers tasked with running the Olympics contract. lol –Matt

Funny Stuff: The ‘Quadrotor Orchestra’ Performs The James Bond Theme!

This is great, but as some of my readers have said, kind of creepy. lol

I am impressed, but I will be really impressed when quadrotors like these can play music with these instruments by ear and autonomously. Or that they create their own music…. Imagine a swarm of these, all throttling their motors differently to create notes and pitches for some battle song?  Then they could play something appropriate before an attack. lol

Pretty cool and the future is now. –Matt

Funny Stuff: Taliban Promise Never To Use Ambulances Again For Suicide Bombings…..Liars!!!!

This has to be the funniest thing I have read in a week.  The Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid promised IRIN that this will ‘not happen again’.  Now that is funny.  The Taliban are liars, and of course they will use ambulances for assaults or for transporting drugs and weapons again. They also burned ten Qurans and have yet to be punished for that. Either way, I think this song below spells out exactly what kind of folks the Taliban and Al Qaeda are……Enjoy. –Matt


AFGHANISTAN: Taliban rue ambulance attack
12 April 2011 (IRIN) – The use of an ambulance by Taliban suicide attackers in a raid on a police training centre in the southern province of Kandahar on 7 April has been acknowledged as a violation of war laws and the insurgents have promised investigations.
“This will not happen again,” Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, told IRIN.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) strongly condemned the use of a clearly-marked ambulance by the attackers.
“Using an ambulance for the purpose of deceiving the adversary in carrying out an attack constitutes perfidy. This is strictly prohibited by international humanitarian law and is totally unacceptable,” said Jacques de Maio, the ICRC’s head of operations for South Asia, in a 7 April press statement.
Several people, almost all of them security forces, were killed and wounded in the attack, according to provincial officials. Read the rest of this entry »
