Are we going to learn how being apart of every failed op in history gets one promoted?

He must have studied "Job Advancement - The Henry Gyrich Way."

At least when Gyrich was fired he got to make a "I'm going to spend more time with my family" speech.

"Failing upwards" is a thing, particularly in military fiction. It was a big part of Larry Hama's G.I. Joe, for example, that a big part of career advancement in the United States armed forces is being able to dodge the entirety of the blame, and in Fury's case, he's always the guy executing the orders, which makes him virtually blameless.

It's a neat writing trick, framing America's amoral cold war politics and adventurism as being about the American soldiers by giving the black ops assassin a wife and having the commies feed people to sharks.

No no, the meaty brain and skull stopped it, if I learned nothing from movies, I learned that.

You know, my cousin is a paraplegic and I have a quadriplegic neighbor.

My family and my neighbor's family both preview someone with a handicap over a dead loved one. What the Sam Hell is wrong with Fury?!?

It sounds like it was the soldiers request more than fury jumping the gun, so to say.

I don't think it needs to be said that when someone wants you to kill them, and they're not in danger of dying a worse death in the immediate future, you shouldn't do it.

It's war. Social norms are usually thrown out the window in these times.

I mean, arguably, his wounds might've grown infected in the hours it took them to reach the Florida Keys, but I take your point.

It's set in the sixties. A time when men were real men, women were real women, and small furry creatures from Andromeda were real small furry creatures from Andromeda.

In short, when macho alpha-male men's-men types like Fury and the special forces types he'd run with probably had different attitudes towards disability than we do today.
