Picking Up The Pace

The Old Sarge is overjoyed about the selection of Marine Gen. Peter Pace to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

It's about time they got someone in there who'll kick ass and take names. Over the years I was in, I got real tired of all the whiny, sniveling little crybabies who were more concerned about everyone's "feelings" than getting the job done. Maybe this guy will hold everyone's feet to the fire and have one standard for everyone.

The Air Force is a bunch of sissies, the Army is a bunch of bumblebutts, and the Navy is so hidebound with their stupid traditions that they can't get anything done. None of them is anywhere near the fighting condition of the Marines.

It's high time the whole DoD got its act together. None of the other three services has managed to put anyone in that position who could get the job done. Maybe this guy can do it, starting at the top and working his way down. The best thing he could do would be to fire a few generals and admirals.

Wouldn't it be cool to see him leading them all in doing push-ups or running around the exterior of the Pentagon?

Pace is the first Marine ever to be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.
