Calling Col. Klink!….Russian Front Gambit Still Works


Reader Mark Bonacquisti points us to this Rocky Mountain News story about Army officers pulling a page from the Hogan's Heroes playbook: Some soldiers allege that they are being threatened with being sent to Iraq if they refuse to re-enlist. Notes Bonacquisti, "A year in Iraq may not equal even a day in Stalingrad for sheer lethality, but apparently it's enough of a threat for heavy-handed Army goons to lord it over their soon-to-be-free charges."

Whole thing here. Army spokesmen deny the allegations.
