Smells like something and I do not think it is teen spirit

 Can't you recognize bullshit? Don't you think it would be a useful item to add to your intellectual toolkits to be capable of saying, when a ton of wet steaming bullshit lands on your head, 'My goodness, this appears to be bullshit'?

Aw, look at this spread of pics from The Atlantic.  Plucky rebels improvising weapons from junk.  Stalwart do-it-yourself guys whacking at tank cannons with mallets, rocket pods mounted on pick-em-up trucks. 

(Ignore picture 18 featuring some dudes firing rifles at a Libyan airforce fighter jet.  After after three months of 24x7 bombardment by NATO forces enforcing a no-fly zone and humanitarian aid from bombers there is no way for such a thing to exist.)

Plucky rebels.  Barefoot soldiers.  Clear underdogs.  Fighting mercenaries.  And a professional army.  Now what American - rooting as we do for the underdog - could not resist sending other people's sons to help those poor fellers out?
