The U.S. Army: Sultans of Spin 
Some things are just too funny to make up. Believe it or not, this exercise in non-linear reasoning is verbatim from an actual operations order my unit recently received.

“Non-compliant forces continue to attack U.S. Military and Iraqi civilian targets throughout AO [Area of Operations] YONKERS*. Many of these attacks are attributed to recent coalition successes throughout the AO that have potentially degraded threat capabilities and affected their ability to attack US military forces with effectiveness.”

Hmmm...maybe if we adopted a deliberate policy of avoiding successes,--even downright ineptitude, we could bring the insurgency to its knees!


*Not the actual code word. Everything else is the same.
