#1 Typical NYT doesn't know that "Phony War" is already in use as a term.

#2 On 22 July 2003, Task Force 20, aided by troops of the United States Army 101st Airborne Division under command of General Dave Petreaus, had a showdown with Saddam's sons Uday, Qusay and Qusay. These two buggers are no more and the world is now a better place.
Please tell us about your West Point appointment and rather abbreviated military career Mr. Truscott.

#3 One too many Qusay's in the above.

#4 Beso, vile deeds of Qusay and Uday were practically indistinguishable. All Hussains (or Husseins). Same devil's spawn.

#5 Roger that 2x4! Lucian the IV (why do men need numbers after their names?) was a grad of the USAMA Class of 1969. He was kicked out of the Army a year later, which has had a chilling effect on his attitude toward the Army as well as his writings on military and policy matters. A birdcage liner factory makes an excellent pulpit for him.
