A couple of good military equipment/training posts from Ace. The first is an SUV you won't want to be cutting off in traffic. Be sure to watch the video.
The second is a picture of Shi'ite female ninjas in training! Best viewed while listening to an Islamic speedmetal version of the theme from S.W.A.T. Or is it, perhaps, a picture of The Anchoress and her friends when they're really, really, angry?
Speaking of which, The Anchoress is angry at Maureen Dowd here, and at Salman Rushdie here. Also, quite a nice post here about the retreat she was on this weekend.
