I hope this doesn't turn into one of those Obama "you didn't do that on your own" kind of games. That will turn quickly boring.
No, no chill pill necessary since you've qualified your original statement to refer to only those civilians that think they're in the chain of command when they aren't.

No games planned, either. I prefer reason and reality.
