Quote of the Day

Marine Corps Col. George Bristol, 
urging a boot-based policy

Marine Corps Col. George Bristol, a trained sniper and martial arts master who for the past year has overseen a U.S. special operations task force in Africa, had a message for his troops before heading off to retirement.
“An evil” has descended on Africa, Bristol said. “It is on us to stomp it out.”   
--Stars and Stripes

And how many Africans along with it, colonel?

For more Bristol, see here; on the militarization of US Africa policy, see here.
