Smoking in the US Military

#2
Oliver Cromwell tried to ban swearing, but that seems to have been forgotten about for the moment. I think if I was a serving soldier, and had to stop smoking, a few more people would have to die. Seriously though, it gets worse. There is a corpse-chomping battlefield robot under development which should help to keep the place tidy. I hope it can 'mak sikkar' before it feeds me into the furnace. Report here http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,532492,00.html?test=latestnews

The problem with this is that if Septics they are denied the freedom to smoke many of them will turn to Chewing Tobacco, as a lot of them already do.
Now I don't smoke (never have) and find it a pretty foul habit, but for all
-round puke-inducing disgust you have to spend some time in the company of some 7ft., 20stone hillbilly with black teeth, a gob full of half-masticated Baccy and an empty Coke tin into which he directs a stream of Kak-brown saliva every 5 minutes, it's absolutely F*cking GROSS!! :x :x :x
Seriously, Mouth Cancer is to good for the b*stard. But a word of warning, for God's sake, whatever you do, keep an eye on what happens to that Coke can! 8O

It is all tobacco products they want to ban, including dip. The 'dippers' are even more p!ssed off than the smokers.

You beat me to it! Although I for one am less phased by the US top brass considering banning smoking on operations than I am with their use of the word ''Warrior''. I wish they wouldn't, warriors are in lord of the rings etc, SOLDIERS is a better discription for army personnel, a tangent I know but enoughs enough.

Whilst on exchange at Ft Knox (SIMNET, God's own video game!), I got to see the Yank recruits or trade-course guys or whatever, all the time. Never saw one smoking. Wheen I asked one for a light one day, he said they were not allowed to smoke on course. I believe they were recruits, BTW. If this is the case, I would imagine that EVERYONE is a non-smoker for way longer than the time it takes to break the physical addiction, and are thus de facto nonsmokers. Why anyone would start up again is beyond me. So I think it would be great to ban it altogether on duty. THat said, no-one should be disciplined for smoking a legal product while on leave.
