New Milblog to check out

There are several new Milblogs I've run across that I need to add to my blogroll, but here's one that I thought I would point out now. Xavier is a Signal Corps soldier currently stationed at Bagram AB in Afghanistan. He has a couple of rather humorous posts I thought I'd point out. The first one is something he came across regarding an impending British take-over of the United States. Here are a few highlights:

"7. You should declare war on Quebec! and France, using nuclear weapons
if they give you any merde. The 97.85% of you who were not aware that
there is a world outside your borders should count yourselves lucky.
The Russians have never been the bad guys. "Merde" is French for
"5hit". You will no longer be allowed to own or carry guns. You will
no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous in public
than a vegetable peeler. Because we don't believe you are sensible
enough to handle potentially dangerous items, you will require a
permit if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public."
"11. As a sign of penance 5 grams of sea salt per cup will be added to
all tea made within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this quantity
to be doubled for tea made within the city of Boston itself."

The second item is an interesting incident he had with a masseuse in which he was forced to save the entire camp from an imminent bio-chem attack.

Go check 'em out!
