Blotto: War!S

DESPITE A COVER that showed an iPhone filled with apps, JOHN ARQUILLA'S cover story for Foreign Policy, "The New Rules of War", is more about the use of infantry and drones in FUTURE WARS and less of a dependence on

"big ships, big guns, and big battalions". I HAD TO CONTINUE THIS SENTENCE HERE BECAUSE IN THE FUTURE WAR OF PUBLISHING YOU MAY ONLY USE 40 WORDS ABOVE THE FOLD.

A HELLCAT IS A JUNGLE GYM in the SOLOMON ISLANDS.

Speaking of JUNGLE WAR, am I the only one to find The Pacific miniseries on HBO limp compared to Band of Brothers? I am having a hard time connecting with the characters. Although we can all agree that DARLING AUSSO-GREEK LADIES make any liberty port worth inflating a few condoms over.

HOWEVER! It has come to my attention that one of the characters, acted by young JOSEPH MAZZELLO of Jurassic Park fame (his sister KNOWS UNIX), is author E.B. SLEDGE, whose memoir With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa is said to be one of the finest accountings of the Pacific war.

An MIT grad student, DANIELLE ZUROVCIK, has developed to implement this NEGATIVE-PRESSURE THERAPY using a simple $3 pump as opposed to FANCY MACHINES which can cost up to $100 per day to rent. Haiti earthquake survivors' suppurating wounds say WE LOVE THIS PUMP!

SLAWEK KRAJNIEWSKI snapped this wonderful photo of an HARRIER JUMP-JET taxiing in the rain. I am especially enamored of the PAINT CHIPS that have flaked off near the jet's OCTOPUS-LIKE GILLS.
