    Peace is our profession.
    I also like the spotlight which shines in the operator’s eyes, presumably right before the rearward-firing missile launches over his left shoulder and wipes out a supply division or two.
    Operator error, twelve years in Leavenworth.

      They’re multimode, dude! Nose cones interchange! That’s what kept the Hun at bay. That and our superlative rear echelon logistics, of course. Low “tooth to tail ratio”, baby. That was Saddam’s (and all dictator yahoo’s) problem, spent his money on his missiles and cheap radar dish installations, right next to his radar operators.
      “Operator actuated rearward-aimed missile when big spotlight shone in his eyes. This was in violation of Operation X-500 Procedure 14(b), ‘When big spotlight shines in your eyes, do not, DO NOT, actuate rearward-aimed missile.'”
      Two supply divisions were destroyed. Cause: Operator error. Twelve years in Leavenworth.

        Thats the trouble with Old Age it clouds your thinking, rather than the Army method of simply outlawing the thought process.
        Only two supply divisions, a good supply sargent could make up for that over a long weekend.
