WASHINGTON â€” The Pentagon announced Tuesday it had awarded a sole-source contract to United Airlines for work related to the forcible removal of President Bashar al-Assad from Syria.
The contract, worth $2.1 billion, tasks the airline company with locating Assad, grabbing him from his seat in the presidential palace, and â€œdragging him out of Damascus by his arms.â€ The contract also notes that Assad should be â€œasked several times, politelyâ€ to give up his seat of power, though if he refuses, United workers should bloody his nose up a bit, according to the posting at FedBizOpps.

Just days after retired Marine Gen. James Mattis was officially tapped as Trumpâ€™s nomination for defense secretary, he vowed to reporters that if approved by Congress he would â€œmake killing great again.â€
â€œThe first time we blow an enemy nation completely off the map will not be an insignificant event,â€ Mattis said. â€œThe survivors of the globe will write about what we do for the next 10,000 years.â€
There has been unprecedented bipartisan support for â€œMad Dogâ€ Mattisâ€™ nomination, as many lawmakers are fearful of receiving a vigorous ass kicking from the retired Marine general.
â€œHe testified on Capitol Hill once, pushed me on the ground, and then took my lunch money,â€ said Democratic Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois. â€œIâ€™m all about him being SecDef if he stops calling me girlâ€™s names.â€
Meanwhile, Pentagon brass are scrambling to figure out how they are going to brief the incoming Defense Secretary without PowerPoint.
â€œI once gave a short but exciting PowerPoint brief to General Mattis,â€ said a Marine officer who wished to remain anonymous. â€œI was on light duty for three weeks after that.â€
Confident in his approval by Congress, Mattis has already ordered all military maps to be changed from having a label of â€œMiddle Eastâ€ to â€œFree Parking.â€
At press time, Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.), a former Marine officer, was seen pleading â€” with tears in his eyes â€” that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) not try and cross Mattis, for fear heâ€™ll kill them all.

Duffleblog (the military humor site):
Millions of members of the U.S. military are frantically Googling where the Secretary of Defense sits in the line of succession to President of the United States, sources confirmed today.
The more than two million Google searches for terms such as â€œwhere is SecDef in succession orderâ€ and â€œcan SecDef be promoted to presidentâ€ came just hours after it was learned that retired Marine Gen. James Mattis would be named to lead the Department of Defense.
Mattis, 66, has been tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to head the department, which has been plagued by low morale and expensive cluster-fuck weapons systems, such as the F-35. Heâ€™s expected to easily boost morale, but attempting to fix DoD bureaucracy may be beyond even Mattisâ€™ abilities.
When asked how Pentagon procurement could be fixed, for example, even God declined to answer. Instead, the Almighty referred all further questions to Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and General Dynamics.
If confirmed, Mattis would need to simultaneously take out the Treasury Secretary, Secretary of State, President pro tempore of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, the Vice President, and the President, in order to assume the highest office in the land.
According to sources, he already has a plan to do just that, which he wrote in 2003. He later stashed the plan in the drawer of his nightstand, on which his concubine places a breakfast shake mix of Jack Daniels and Creatine each morning. A person familiar with the plan said that Mattis mostly uses his bare hands, though he often carries multiple guns, knives, and sharp sticks on his person.
Experts say that Mattis dropping six people who have no military training would be a â€œwalk in the park,â€ compared to his usual average of 12 kills per day. They went on to say that Mattis exterminating a bunch of tubby civilians would be roughly equivalent to him taking a bath or making toast, in terms of difficulty.

Secret Service wary of Mattis having plan to kill everyone he meets at Trump Tower
NEW YORK â€” Agents with the Secret Service are reportedly stressed and uneasy about a meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, since the legendary four-star commander has a plan to kill everyone he meets at Trump Tower.
Mattis, 66, was summoned to Trumpâ€™s New York City penthouse on Saturday to discuss the possibility of his being named as Defense Secretary.
As part of his pre-trip planning, sources say that Mattis wrote a five-paragraph order with detailed plans to kill everyone on his way to the building, to include TSA workers in the security screening area at his home airport, the pilots flying him to New York, all the passengers on the aircraft, the taxi driver who picked him up, multiple people who were rude to him on the subway, and staff in the lobby of Trump Tower.
When reached by reporters, Mattis declined to comment on whether he had a plan to kill anyone else.

Duffleblog: Admin Error Sends Bradley Manning to Death Row, Nidal Hasan to Gender Reassignment Surgery.
FT LEAVENWORTH, KS â€” An administrative error has been blamed for a mix-up in sentencing involving the cases of convicted Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan and Bradley Manning, the Army private convicted of leaking classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.
After sentencing concluded last Wednesday in Fort Hood, Texas, it was reported Hasan would undergo gender reassignment surgery and change his name from Nidal to Nahid Hasan. Nahid is an Arabic name meaning â€œone with full, round breasts.â€
Not long after it was revealed, the traitor formerly known as Chelsea had been transferred to death row where he awaits execution by lethal injection.
Leavenworth officials announced that both gender reassignment and execution have been approved by fiscal offices. Due to end of fiscal year funding constraints, changing these allocations will be too costly in the final quarter.
Sequestration and work furloughs were also cited as possible contributors to the errors, which are now fiscally and administratively impossible to correct. Administrative offices in Leavenworth were unavailable for comment due to a â€œtraining holiday.â€
Hasan, who had declined to speak on his own behalf previously, is reportedly now quite vocal concerning this turn of events.
â€œThis is egregious,â€ the former Army psychiatrist said of the mix up. â€œIâ€™m supposed to get 72 virgins, not turn into one. My mullah screwed me!â€
At press time, Manning was unavailable for comment, throwing a hissy fit in his cell. This despite fellow inmates having assured him they would still call him girls names.

Duffleblog offers some comfort to the democrat bed-wetting liberal community.
LAS VEGAS, Nevada â€” Just hours after the Democratic Presidential debate was broadcast on CNN, Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) made a solemn vow to not kill again if elected President, sources confirmed.
Webb, a former Marine officer and Secretary of the Navy, admitted his comments during the debate about the enemy who wounded him with a grenade not being around to tell about it were maybe â€œa bit too realâ€ for the liberal crowd, close associates of Webb told reporters.
Though Webb cautioned during a post-debate interview from his freshly-dug two-man fighting position that he had taken a manâ€™s life and wasnâ€™t afraid to do it again.
The 69-year-old tried to further explain his comments that drew shock during the debate: â€œLook, I know what it looks like when a .45 slug takes a manâ€™s brain and paints a Picasso with it,â€ he said, while miming brain matter exploding out of the back of his head.
He added: â€œIf you elect me President you wonâ€™t have to learn what it looks like too,â€ said the Vietnam war hero, as he began fashioning a necklace of human ears.
According to close associates, once heâ€™s elected as commander-in-chief, Webb plans to delegate future killing to subordinates since he understands that as a good leader, he needs to foster their development and give them a chance to kill for themselves.

Duffleblog (the military satire site) hits the nail on the head with this one.
op Army leaders have ordered its elite Special Forces unit to change its motto from the Latin â€œDe Opresso Liberâ€ (To liberate the oppressed) to something that would be more culturally sensitive, after a large number of Afghans holding child sex slaves have complained.
â€œWe want to make sure we are not offending our coalition partners and not judging them based on our own biases,â€ said Col. Dwight S. Barry, a Pentagon spokesperson. â€œAt the end of the day, we just have to respect that raping young boys and mutilating female genitals is just a part of their culture.â€
Started in 1952, Army Special Forces chose its Latin motto of â€œDe Opresso Liberâ€ at a time when the U.S. was heavily focused on freeing people around the world from the chains of Soviet Communism. Now decades later, Army leaders want operators to be more aware of cultural differences they may not understand in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Berkeley, California.
The move comes in the wake of numerous complaints from Afghan men, who have chided U.S. military officials over previous run-ins with Special Forces soldiers unaware of the ancient Afghan custom of â€œbacha bazi.â€ The practice, which literally translates to â€œboy play,â€ consists of chaining children to beds, taking off their clothes, and then sexually assaulting them until they scream â€œbingo.â€…
Officials are currently weighing a number of potential mottos as replacements, which include â€œTolerate Iniustitia (Tolerate Injustice)â€ and â€œAd Dissimulare (To Turn a Blind Eye).â€
In addition to the change in motto, the Army band has also been directed to record a new version of the â€œBallad of the Green Berets,â€ which was recorded during the Vietnam War. An initial draft of the lyrics include: â€œSilver wings upon their chest / These are men, Americaâ€™s best / One hundred slaves get raped today / But all ignored by the Green Beret.â€

Duffleblog (military equivalent of The Onion) has a real gem today:
MOBILE, Ala. â€” Seeking to honor a retired congresswoman and 2011 shooting victim in the most considerate and respectful way possible, the Navy today christened the future USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS-10), a first-of-its-kind, gun-free warship.
Designed to hold a core crew of 40 sailors, the Independence-class littoral combat ship has been stripped bare of its Mk 110 57-millimeter gun, all four of its Mk2 .50-cal machine guns, its Evolved SeaRAM 11 cell missile launcher, and its entire cache of small arms, which are typically issued to boarding teams and watch standers.
â€œHaving this mighty warship be 100% gun-free not only helps to honor its heroic namesake, Gabby Giffords, but it also helps the Navy to steer clear of promoting a culture of violence,â€ said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, who reportedly lobbied hard to get Congress and the Secretary of Defense on board with leaving the Navyâ€™s newest addition to the fleet completely defenseless.
â€œOnce commissioned and put into service,â€ Mabus continued, â€œthis vessel will truly embody the Navyâ€™s new motto of Semper Modestisâ€” always considerate.â€
The Navy Secretary went on to say that he hopes Giffords sets a new trend Navy-wide, and that itâ€™s merely the first ship of many to go weapons-free.
â€œWe have this whole new generation of millennials joining the Navy and becoming sailors on a daily basis, and most of them donâ€™t even like guns,â€ he said. â€œSo itâ€™s important we listen to their concerns and do what we can to adapt to them.â€

Duffleblog today brings us this moving coming out story from one brave soul who took a long look into the mirror and finally came honestly to terms with his [its] in-born sexual identity.
I have finally found the strength to admit it.
I was 12 years old when I realized that Iâ€™m not really a man at heart, but rather a 19 foot, 10.5 inch long gatling gun strapped onto a 24,959 pound airframe.
All my life has been a lie but Iâ€™m setting that right today. I was designed to kill Soviet tanks. From now on, call me â€œWarthog.â€ Thatâ€™s my real name.
Iâ€™m having plastic surgeons attach a GAU-8 Avenger 30 milimeter rotary cannon, 1,200 pounds of titanium armor, and two General Electric TF34-GE-100 turbofan engines to my body. Sgt. Major Fairchild said Iâ€™m fucking stupid and I canâ€™t be a jet, but Iâ€™m beautiful and I am a goddamn jet.
If the Army wonâ€™t pay for me to get the surgery, Iâ€™m just going to bring in Code Pink and point out that that Manning loser is getting hormones and heâ€™s in prison so why shouldnâ€™t a perfectly well-adjusted and honorably serving soldier have the right to be who they truly are, a metal killing machine?
I am so sick and tired of being oppressed. Now we A-10â€™s are on Congressâ€™s chopping block. Itâ€™s sickening to see all the white cisgender nazi shitlords literally raping my people with their actions.
Itâ€™s my right to spray 2,100 to 4,200 depleted uranium rounds per minute at both soft and hard targets and if you donâ€™t support me and my transformation then youâ€™re an aerialphobe and need to check your weapon platform privilege.
