    How does having a dumb-ass for a Captain equate to me driving an H2?

    It’s about oil rationing. I.e. the less we all use, the less “our men” die bringing it back to us.

    But, isn’t this an ancient battle tactic? Starve your enemy till he’s either too weak to fight or runs out of ammo. What’s it called again? Camping? No, I think Siege.

    If they wanna die for it, then I wanna pay for it! Soon as damn people stop dying is the day I’ll stop using gasoline!

    In Starcraft it’s called killing the gatherers.

    With me, it’s called I want my gas!

    Of course, when this was printed (WWII, I expect), people knew the value of defending resources from an enemy.

    Now, it’s “No Blood For Oil”.
