or why we need civilian control of the military.
Once upon a time there was a plan to create a military museum. A location at Fort Belvoir in Virginia was selected in October of 2001. Somewhere along the way the Pentagon decided it might be a good idea to allow a private developer to build a 125-acre entertainment, hotel and conference center complex to offset the cost.
A Florida developer has submitted an unsolicited proposal for a military theme park that would include the "Chateau Belvoir" hotel and an entertainment district with bars like the "1st Division Lounge" and several "4D" rides.
"You can command the latest M-1 tank, feel the rush of a paratrooper freefall, fly a Cobra Gunship or defend your B-17 as a waist gunner," according to the proposal by Universal City Property Management III of Orlando. The company has no connection to NBC-Universal, which owns Universal Studios, a spokeswoman said yesterday.
These people are some sick fucks. And, as they would remind me, in wartime too. How about we consider a sane administration that doesn't think war is F U N !!!
