Other than that, may every civilian working with the Armed Forces continue to develop better things, and to learn to stay the f*** out of the way of active duty personnel. Thanks, by the way.

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.

Since we're going to fight the Vietnam war again, yes, Democrats started it. However, Nixon kept it going after saying in 1968 that he was the one to end it. As many military were killed under Nixon as under LBJ.
