    I've been reading "Chasing Ghosts"

    In the beginning of the book, while on his way to Iraq, he is musing about the movie "Red Dawn". Not sure how many of you have ever seen this movie, but it was a favorite of mine while growing up.

    in a nutshell:

    The russians come to invade the USA, and are thwarted off by a few local high school kids.

    "Now with the roles reversed, I was on my way to occupy someone else's country. America could soon create thousands of Jed Eckerts (SWAYZEE) in places like Mosul and Baghdad. "

    Cons hate Paul Reickoff for speaking from experience.
