It’s the little things ...
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, July 21, 2007

Like this graphic from TIME about "How To Leave Iraq":

Ah yes, imagery to conjurer up recollections of our final withdrawal from Vietnam.

The problem? Well although we did use helicopters, they were US helicopters, not Soviet-era Mi-24 "Hind" gunships.

We might want to get our media some updated flash-cards with aircraft silhouettes such as those used in WWII to train people in aircraft identification.

Or they could hire some ex-military as consultants so they could at least appear somewhat more credible when discussing military matters.

... Nah.

Well done, McQ.

Now that’s textbook nitpicking.

Well I was having a Kalinkin Russian beer (its not bad and they’ve been making it since 1795). When it comes to things made in Russia, drinking one is like staying in a Holiday Inn Express.

In this case, however, I didn’t do the nitpicking ... I just commented on it. But then, your powers of discernment never have been particularly noteworthy, have they Pogue? ;)

It’s also interesting to me, who gets defended, and who does not, when it comes time to decide what is and is not "nitpicking".

The words "fake but accurate" come to mind.

If they wanted to make it more accurate, perhaps the I and R should be shown committing genocide on the Q while the A just shrugs...

Maybe the artist was trying to say once we pull out the Russians will show up and start hauling sh*t out.

Starting with the A in Iraq....
