What is the Mission of a Machine Gun?
Found this over at A Collection of Thoughts. Had to share.
It's a machine gun. As such, it's "mission" is to perforate enemies and ensure that they give their lives for their cause. "Deter, and if necessary, compel"?? Screw that. The purpose of a machine gun is to kill as many enemy as possible and "compel" the remainder to keep their heads down until US troops can figure out another way to kill them.You should read the whole post over at Snake Eater's Blog for context.
