With the US Military sending thousands of troops, aircraft carriers, planes, and vehicles into what would appear to be unavoidable combat, our brave soldiers might not have had enough time to say good-bye to their loved ones, friends, and families. Taking up position thousands of miles from home in a hostile, foreign, unforgiving region of land might cause these troops to forget who and what they're fighting for. Today's update is dedicated to the US soldiers who are putting their lives on the line to protect us and our wonderful country. Without further ado, let me present a Something Awful citizens of America gallery, showcasing the people that you're fighting to defend.

God bless you, men and women, for agreeing to run the risk of being shot so you may protect the lives of these people. It takes a special kind of person to do this without turning the gun on themselves, and for this I commemorate you. May you all come home safely so we can all figure out a way for this to never happen again (both the terrorists and the people featured above).

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
