This.

Though cheese ravioli was pretty decent too. I don't remember many of the MREs anymore, but beef steak seems to ring a bell, or something similar. I'll never forget 3Cs' supremacy over others though.

Still poo poo compared to anything from nearly any food service joint over a gas station.

Oh poo poo. Chili mac. How the gently caress did I forget the fuel of my assholes' nightmares?

Vegetarian MREs are generally pretty good.

Also the tuna one that's just name-brand tuna with some relish and tortillas.

Some of you goobers might still be on the fence or, even worse, incorrect about the best US involved war. Some of you are going to say Revolutionary war because hey, we wouldn't be here without it. A few of the Canadians in here are going to trot out the war of 1812 because hey, you burn the white house and you kinda stay attached to that and that's respectable. The Civil war was great because you got to kill a bunch of racists, and a bunch of Americans at the same time. Well that's just super! WWI was badass because of trenchfoot and all the European countries hosed themselves enough that they left space open for us to move in. WWII had nukes and poo poo and we just dumped all over the Japanese, Asia should still be thanking us for that (you're welcome). All the wars after that suck rear end and are unimportant and if you think anything after 1945 is the best war you're wrong. But look here fuckers, you're all wrong.

Let's talk Spanish-American War. Three months of American glory saying "gently caress you Spain".

Back in the good ol' year of 1898 Spain was having a little fuss with Cuba, which hell let's face it literally everyone has had a little fuss with Cuba. If you find anyone who says they like Cuba they're lying to your face. But the US had interests there so we sent a pre-Dreadnought ship that was outdated in tactics and construction by the time it hit the seas to protect our poo poo right there in the harbor of Havana.

And then the fucker sank. No one is exactly sure why, but more than likely it's because of an internal explosion in the magazine. Improper coal storing procedures on coal fired engines, you know how these things go. But gently caress Spain, the tabloids of the time decided that obviously Spain sunk it because there's nothing more American than blaming someone else for your own failures. SO LET'S GO TO WAR BOYS. This was a war that William McKinley didn't even want to have, a president so well-loved that he got shot and died from gangrene in 1901. gently caress you Bill.

Anyway, the Spanish American war was the first real contest of American dick-waving. Spain was loving up all of its colonial hopes because of home unrest and it's time for America to take the loving stage. We poo poo all over them in three months and got the Philippines, Guam, and Cuban independence out of the deal. We made Theodore Roosevelt, literally the best president (and gently caress you if you disagree) a national star. Best of all we humiliated a world power and made our entrance onto the world stage and we haven't stopped sticking our fingers where they don't belong since. If you're unconvinced about the benefits of that war then allow me to point you towards the hundred years of generations of military that have gone before you, marrying drat near every female Asian we've come across to fully staff AAFES.

I mean, if you're questioning that you're going to get either first or second place in the sheep game, that's still up in the air.

As far as winning at life, you've made the decision many of us were not wise enough to make which involves getting involved in the armed forces. I'd say you're at least on top of things from that perspective.

Videogames that take place after the Cold War usually aren't that good and that's really a shame. I wish they would make a cool modern war game that I'd be proud to get all the achievements in and then have a sobering reflection on the horrors of war but also when the A10 scene happened it was insanely sick

I think it was Battlefield 3 where I last felt really cool if that was the one with the spetznaz guys. HALO jumping into that valley and then the chase through Paris followed by the nuke going off was pretty boss.

Here is my post defending my position on the coolest war.


The Toledo War.


Basically the state of Ohio and the Michigan territory had a border dispute over the ownership of Toledo of all things, it got heated and both Militias marched out to seize the town. And then couldn't be bothered to actually fight each other because they would have rathered go into town, find a tavern and get wasted and then go home. Congress eventually intervened and Ohio "won" Toledo while Michigan got compensated by being given the Upper Peninsula.
