Pace vows to kick ass!

Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke about the capability of U.S. forces to respond to North Korea or any other potential foe given ongoing U.S. commitments, citing if faced by a new threat, U.S. forces would have to use "“brute force"” as opposed to surgical strikes because of U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"“You need precision intelligence to drop precision munitions, and a lot of our precision intelligence assets are currently being used in the Gulf region, so some of those would not be available if we had to go some place else,"” Pace said. As a result, U.S. forces would have to use more unguided "“dumb bombs,"” resulting in more collateral damage; such an air campaign would be more akin to World War II or the Korean War rather than the precision-guided air war during the initial invasion of Iraq".

The highest ranking US Marine in history warned potential enemies not to underestimate the "“overwhelming combat power"” that U.S. forces can unleash if needed. "“It would not be as clean as we would like it to be, but it would certainly be sure, and the outcome would not be in doubt,"” he said.

Colonel Creedon, currently facing court-martial proceedings, echoed General Pace's sentiments, adding; "The destruction of our enemies will be complete and total" he seethed "Never before in the field of human conflict, has been seen what we have in store for the next bunch of clowns who challenge the awesome might of the United States of America, we ain't gonna start something but we're sure as hell gonna finish it. We're gonna clean their clocks".

I'm sure you'd make a fine clock cleaner colonel.

Maybe he'll get a job as one in prison?

No, the Colonel's main prison occupation will be either bitch or snitch, however as we all know that he is going away for a long, long time, I'm sure that he will get the opportunity to master both trades.
