Murphy's war law

Murphy's war law

Misschien ook van toepassing in/op het ABL ;)

*Try to look unimportant; the enemy may be low on ammo and not want to waste a bullet on you.

*Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.

*Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.

*Five second fuses always burn three seconds.

*If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in the combat zone.

*No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection.

*No inspection ready unit has ever passed combat.

* If the enemy is within range, so are you.

*Professional soldiers are predictable; the world is full of dangerous amateurs.

*Military Intelligence is a contradiction.

*Killing for peace is like screwing for virginity.

*The side with the simplest uniforms wins.

* Combat will occur on the ground between two adjoining maps.

*The most dangerous thing in the world is a Second Lieutenant with a map and a compass.

*The more a weapon costs, the farther you will have to send it away to be repaired.

*When you have sufficient supplies & ammo, the enemy takes 2 weeks to attack. When you are low on supplies & ammo the enemy decides to attack that night.

*Every command which can be misunderstood, will be.

*The more stupid the leader is, the more important missions he is ordered to carry out.

*Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do.

*No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.

*The most dangerous thing in the combat zone is an officer with a map.

*The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small.

*There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

*Never screw over a buddy; you'll never know when he could save your life.

*Complain about the rations all you want, but just remember; they could very well be your last meal.

*Medals are OK, but having your body and all your friends in one piece at the end of the day is better.

*Thousands of Veterans earned medals for bravery every day. A few were even awarded.

*Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

*If you survive the extraordinary things, it will often be the little things that will kill you.

Ik heb niets gevonden waarvan de Nederlandse vertaling op het ABL niet van toepassing zou zijn ... :roll: -- militaire geschiedenis buiten het ABL gebeuren --

Voor de oorlogs film liefhebbers is dit een mooie film,destijds nog gezien op tv
met Peter O'toole,iets met een Duitse duikboot, die Murphy tot zinken doet brengen op zijn eentje.
