American fast food joints are being shut down at U.S. military bases in Afghanistan, where Gen. McChrystal’s ordered the Army and Air Force Exchange Service to shutter the Taco Bells, Burger Kings and other amenities.
I’m of two minds about this. I’m somewhat appalled by the luxuries that Fobbits have access to, so seeing them suffer warms my cold little heart.
The Air Force folks on those bases are gonna go nuts.
But, on the other hand, on the rare occasions that a grunt from the front line gets back to a major base, now he’s screwed and can’t even get a decent burger.
