#5 Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized
Old women condemned him, said he should apologize.
Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad
The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad
He’s the neighborhood bully

#6 Heard the US M1 got about 95% first-round hits in Gulf I. So it's possible to get close. In fact, thirty hits for seventy rounds sounds pretty bad, considering a number of the targets were probably immovable fighting positions.
Note the report refers to 60mm arty. Not that it's funny to call it that, but what is the 60mm doing at tank school? Is it the smoke canisters?
