Mr. President, we cannot let ourselves get trapped by a yak cavalry gap.
Ren and Stimpy rule! Yak shaving scum is both delicious and nutritious.
Our side still fields a couple of squadrons of Radioactive Bear Cavalry. Their time is short. So is yours.
Can’t put up that meme pic, but bet somebody can find it.
Thankfully, this will be my final comment of the night… (one would hope!)
Anyway, I was listening years ago, to someone who would know (presumably), that the average Korean soldier was far tougher than the average American soldier simply by the way they lived their day to day lives. We sleep in racks, they sleep on the ground, and that’s just the beginning.
Look at these soldiers on patrol at 10,000 feet AGL plus.
They’re living it…

Using that logic, the Imperial Japanese Army of World War II should have conquered the world, using only a couple battalions of men, who would never needed to break a sweat. The Zulu empire should have conquered all of Africa in a couple of weeks. It didn’t work out that way in either case.
History repeats itself. The US will one day find itself just like Germany in 1944, in that American supply superiority will no longer keep up (like today, where we even have to buy buy 5.56 ammo from Canada and Israel, we barely have enough heavy industry to go and start a war with anyone) and when it comes down to a Chinese and American grunt, who do you think trained harder?
They look like Bantas.
Here is a pic of a sad elephant made up as a Banta for deranged madman making a movie: http://www.gohobby.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Star-Wars-Bantha.png
*gasp* If it works, it isn’t stupid.
The Yak cavalry was in response to Russia’s Radioactive Bear Cavalry.
I think we know how this will battle turn out:
I’m only concerned if they are jump rated. Those Yaks would probably give a horse a good run at sea level.
That’s pretty cool.
We would use buffaloes….
But they actually HAVE soldiers stationed on their borders. And those borders are not continually subject to an invasion by terrorists who want to destroy their country. Unlike the US…
Exercising, of course, the fundamental right to arm bears.
Land ‘o Goshen, will wonders never cease? And here I thought Yak was just good for milkin’ and eatin”. Didn’t know you could ride ’em too. I would imagine a Yak Cavalry charge is something to see.
admire these folks, tough as railroad spikes.
I flew a YAK 35 once, Like an AT 6. YAK Meat, Ok.
And Han said “I thought these things only smelled bad on the outside.”
Bears with guns? Yea, they’re already all around us. State Pigs.
I’ll stick to my horses. Yaks are slow.
