Manning sent him out there to get ideas about how to stop Sharper from terrorising his blue arse.

As far as actual cowardly acts, one day those raghead douchebags are going to learn that we could send Mississippi boys ALONE at them, and
kick their arse.

They better stop. Nukes leave a mark.

I guess I am more concerned about a wet field than an attack. Supposed to rain again on Friday
