Now It Can Be Told! - Who would have thought that Reece (of all people!) had a gearhead side to her personality? It's hard to visualize… what, she only installs spark plugs whose electrodes were forged when Mercury was not in retrograde? Then again, if anybody could use that sort of woo-woo stuff to make cars run better, it might just be Reece…

Officer pulls Sheila over:

Officer: You know your taillight is out?
Sheila: I know, sir. I was doing a left hand signal though. And I always have two hands on the wheel! See?
Officer: ... I'm going to go take a donut break and forget I saw this.

THAT would be something Sheila would do...
ESPECIALLY with her significant other acting normal in the seat beside her.

As is the case with all wars, the profiteers are the real winners.

@Pendrake: When you kill 33 soldiers for every one you lose, you're not really getting your ass kicked.

It was a stupid unnecessary war, fought terribly and with too much media exposure (seriously, could you imagine what public opinion would have been if we would have had CNN on June 6, 1944?)

The US lost Vietnam for the same reason why the Germans lost the Eastern front: you can't defeat an enemy with no respect for it's own people's lives and willing to throw wave after wave of cannon fodder at you until you run out of bullets.

Not to mention that they'd had a little auto-rivalry before, during the Mercer Raceabout / Stutz Bearcat wars... 7@=Q

Never get into an "Arms Race" with an Enchanter.

@Salen: I considered making that pun, but it was already made in the comic a few pages ago, so I passed.

@Marshal Banana: Well, it was either that, or comment how driving a Manual would be easier with the extra arm. Now if only there was an extra leg for that wayward clutch.

@Pendrake:

US military kicked ass on battlefield.

The enemy kicked ass in congress.

Tricky Dicky decided to NOT waste any more US lives fighting against congress.

Profiteers in congress no longer profited
Tricky Dicky is roasted by profiteers

@DarkwingDork:
like the 'Black Hawk Down' incident.

US troops went in to grab a powerful pirate warload.
They:
A> grabbed the target and got him out to face trial
B> grabbed more than 300 lbs of evidence from his 'residence and office' to help prosecute warlord at said trial
C> killed more than 1500 of his troops (conservative estimate, here)
D> when 2 helos were shot down, they rescued EVERY injured US trooper riding in them and destroyed ALL classified material left behind

BUT... the US media considered it a epic failure?

@Valkeiper2012: probably mostly an epic failure BECAUSE the media found out about it.
