    Hold on a minute Jinbar.I got a message from god to run over to the school house and kill a bunch of kids. It should be an easy job as the kids are not armed nor trained in the art of warfare.I guess I must be among the select few to get these easy jobs.I could have been sent over to that Commando unit .If I had been I think I would had resign my commission.I hate to tangle with armed men.
