White House On Fire

#1
It appears somebody has been a bit careless near the Vice President's office - White House Fire - in the old executive building.

What fo you think they were trying to get rid of, or has somebody decided to repeat history and march into Washington DC to set fire to the place just because we can.

Exodus 3
There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up."
Which was a pity, thought Moses

Cheney was in the White House with President Bush receiving their morning intelligence briefings

And they say the Septics have no sense of humour :D

GWB probably thought it was a barbie he's still sitting there waiting for his cheeseburger

I thought it was RRF. As a Kingo I'd have "probably" heard about that.

A U.S. Marine stationed at the building smashed a fifth-floor window to escape from the smoke and had to be rescued from the ledge.
Hello,

someone should tell the United States Marine Corps they have got this balcony thing all wrong.

Shit. Okay can someone check with BATUS and make sure we haven't had any units up there make a wrong turn with their navigation or something? :)

Reminds me of a semi-argument me an American friend of a friend got in to a few years back about the War of 1812. Got a little heated and he was going on about how all powerful the US military was and asking/challenging "Yeah? Well what do you think would happen if you tried that again?" the obvious insinuation that they'd kick our arses. "Uh, two thirds of the country would probably give us a standing ovation?" brought him up short.

An eye witness account of the first time it happened.

http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/washingtonsack.htm


"You will readily imagine that these preparations were beheld by a party of hungry soldiers with no indifferent eye. An elegant dinner, even though considerably overdressed, was a luxury to which few of them, at least for some time back, had been accustomed, and which, after the dangers and fatigues of the day, appeared peculiarly inviting. They sat down to it, therefore, not indeed in the most orderly manner, but with countenances which would not have disgraced a party of aldermen at a civic feast, and, having satisfied their appetites with fewer complaints than would have probably escaped their rival gourmands, and partaken pretty freely of the wines, they finished by setting fire to the house which had so liberally entertained them."

Somethings never change. Squaddies nicking everything that isn't nailed down, then getting completely trousered and wrecking the joint for good measure.
