"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Balls. So far one and only one pallet has failed to have it's chute deployed in all the drops.

Another pallet landed on a guy. He's either the luckiest or unluckiest guy in the universe - he got knocked into a small trench by it so he could still breathe with several tons just above him. He's not going to be pretty, but he's breathing.

Or the dumbest.  It doesn't take a lot of brains to stand under something being dropped from the sky.

hmmm, I wonder which of these "Iraqi Officials" believe this is useless?  Follow it back to the ISIS connection.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Night drop. He probably didn't even see it coming, he just ran towards the flares and got caught. Stupid, but hungry and thirsty people do stupid things.
