Well...they ARE flaming.

Ass-op still needs to go sit in the corner and think about what he's done after posting that. Where did I put that mind napalm...

Fun fact: flame throwers are completely unregulated, AF least on a federal level.

I'm surprised they haven't added a module to the M-4 that lets anyone forward of the muzzle know that a loud device is about to employed, and to please cover their ears, just before firing ignition, and make BUD/S trainees wear arm floaties before pool training. If anyone is still active, do they still do (sanitized for your protection) jody calls when running, or do TPTB just hold a formation group hug afterwards, and award participation trophies? Buncha fucking pussies...

Rethink your premise: the internet has that.

Just read that the regular Army is adopting the Charles Gustave 84 mm recoilless rifle. There are a very broad selection of rounds for it. I wonder if they have a white phosphorous round :?:

This was pretty much the way an old Stargate campaign went... a bunch of Army officers making out, while my PJ and a Navy Seabee (the only two enlisted men, played by the only two veterans in the group) actually went and did important stuff dealing with alien threats to Earth.
