Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
i've long believed the military would be useful for large greening projects. it would give them a sense of identity that's wider and more benign.

who, when they're not 'needed' for enemy-disposal, can balance their karma by doing stuff that lil' folks can't on their own. tree planting, well digging, levee building.

keep them fitter than always blowing shit up, too.
