This passage from the novel I’m currently reading (The Last Centurion, by John Ringo) reminded me of my last post (the narrator is a US Army captain):

“Captain Bandit Six. What’s it like in Iran?”

“Our mission is to maintain and secure.”

“Have you had any problems?”

“We have rectified all our action issues with transformational deconfliction.”

(That one I remember. What a classic. I saw it one time on a poster and nearly shit myself.)


Adjusted with transformational synergy. (I think. Something like that.)

We were deconflicting and transforming faster than a battle-bot. We were synergizing and action-iteming like a couple of water beetles in mating season. We were defenestrating obstructors at one point, I think.

I’ll have to remember that last one.
