"The anger and indignation is there for a national necktie party. "
Not if the 1st Brigade, 3rd Infantry Div, USArmy, Ft. Stewart, has anything to say.
After thirty-five months' accumulated experience in counterinsurgency in Iraq, the 1st Brigade is now the first to be staioned on standby duty within the US. None dare call it counterinsurgency within the homeland, where the 1st Brigade's role is now known as Consequence Management, i.e., rapid military response to suppress civil unrest.
The neckties will be worn by the thousands of detainees rounded up by the 1st Brigade.
Welcome to the new nation. It's no party.
