Who'd believe it....?

More US Marines killed on motorcycles in the States than are killed in Iraq or Afghanistan? 

From USA Today, here's the link.  

I believe it was George Patton who said: The idea is not to die for your country - but to make the other poor bastard die for his. 

Maybe instead of bombs, we should drop Harleys and Ninjas out of aircraft over these war-torn areas. Free motorcycles, fueled and ready to ride. Cheaper than bombs and just as effective, plus the motorcycle companies need the business. 

If we felt guilty about dropping such lethal devices on our enemies, we could include helmets and manuals with the usual caveats: Remember to wear eye protection and ride defensively. Hey, feel the freedom....
