Murphy's laws of combat operations...
** Friendly fire - isn't.
** Recoilless rifles - aren't.
** If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.
** Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
** If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
** Five second fuses always burn three seconds.
** The easy way is always mined.
** Never draw fire; it irritates everyone around you.
** When you have secured the area, make sure the enemy knows it too.
** No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection.
** No inspection ready unit has ever passed combat.
** If the enemy is within range, so are you.
** Military Intelligence is a contradiction.
** The one item you need is always in short supply.
** Interchangeable parts aren't.
** The worse the weather, the more you are required to be out in it.
** Field experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
** No matter which way you have to march, its always uphill.
** Every command which can be misunderstood, will be.
** There is always a way, and it usually doesn't work.
