“Twinkies for Troops” Passes For News At The Pentagon Channel

Either it’s a very slow news day at the hundreds of U.S. military installations around the world, or the Department of Defense is retreating into these sorts of stories at full-steam in order to draw attention away from a string of recent major embarrassments to the U.S. military and the nation as a whole.

The most prominent of these recent embarrassments include backing out of the Syrian debacle (possibly World War III) due to immense domestic and international pressure and scorn, in addition to the recent Navy Yard massacre which was perpetrated by a former serviceman. Oh well, according to the Pentagon Channel maybe the (nutritionally bankrupt) Twinkies will cheer up everyone.
