Good Luck

It's an old American hand sign meaning "Good Luck". At least that's what the crew of the Pueblo("Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to constitute the crime") told their North Korean captors.


I noticed, in the trackbacks to the linked post, a Kerry supporter equating this to Bush-hating obscenities. I don't think it is the same, and wouldn't have shared it if I did. The symbol has specific meaning within the military, and the blogger who shared the image has very close ties to the military. I can concur with the lack of respect our fighting forces have for a man who could portray himself as a war criminal or a war hero when it suited his purposes without giving him a little birdie in other circumstances.
