Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the US military still has a hundred or so horses as well, but they no longer do bayonet training in basic training in the army.

The most brain dead reporting in the "morning after" was the US ABC network which reported "zOMG the military still has bayonets", just quoting the numbers the Army and Marine Corps owns without even asking whether that was more or less than we had during the Civil War.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
